Just like any businessman starting his workday, Mark Riccobono headed out the door Sept. 13 and hopped in his car.
The he put on his sleep shades, started the engine and took off down the street.
Riccobono, executive director of the Jernigan Institute at the National Federation of the Blind, was in town to help the Colorado Center for the Blind celebrate its 25th birthday by offering rides in a vehicle designed to give blind people the ability to drive.

LITTLETON —Julie Deden remembers when the Colorado Center for the Blind, founded in 1988, was originally on South Broadway, then on South Acoma, in Denver.
That was before it outgrew its space and moved to Littleton in 2000 to expand its youth and senior programs.
The center celebrated the center’s 25th anniversary Sept. 13-14 at 2233 W. Shepperd Ave.
