"Chuck", who commutes to his job as a guide at the park via the Pan Tran bus service out of Martinsburg, had planned to operate a newsstand in Mar- tinsburg. But a break for "Chuck", who has been blind since birth, gave him the chance to deal in history instead of news. Dennis, a stout man with an easy laugh, is believed to be the only totally blind guide ever l employed by the National Park Service. And it wasn't easy for him to convince Park Service officials he could do the job when he applied for it. Although leafy at first of hiring him, his superiors have now, nothing but praise for his work. They say they have made only one con- cession to him and his blindness, the installation of an electric device to count the number of persons entering the visitors center at the Park. However, there have been some obstacles for Dennis. One of the main functions for a guide at Harpers Ferry is to tell visitors about the history of the area. He also has to know about world has ever seen. And it has reliability built in, whether it's an earth station talking to outer space-or a cute little tele. phone that's built like Mickey Mouse. Because we realize how im- portant it is to keep you in touch with your world. We spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year, making sure that when you pick up your phone... It works. We keep you talking. the consequences of the raid which helped lead to the Civic War. Researching the history was difficult for Dennis because there were few Braille hooks or tapes on the subject. So, "I just listened and learned from the most frequently asked questions where things were, why they're important", Dennis said. 15 Given Citations For Read-A-ThonWork A total of, 15 people have been awarded a certificate of appreciation by the National Association for Retarded Citizens for their work in a recent Read-A-Then project.
