BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) -- A blind attorney from Bountiful has been appointed by President Bush to serve on the United States Access Board.

Ron Gardner says it's an honor to be chosen to serve on the board.

The board is based in Washington and is an independent federal agency devoted to accessibility for people with disabilities.

The board operates with about 30 staff members, a governing board of representatives from federal departments, and public members appointed by the president.

Gardner says he hopes to bring attention to programs that are available to those who are blind and disabled.
