I think you should hear them out, but totally agree with Barbara that a 
residential facility sounds a little creepy to me.  Still, in this era of 
retirement communities, etc., maybe you should sit down and hear what they 
have in mind.  Oddly, his message says they will "employ" 1000 people.  Do 
they really mean that?  1000 jobs?  Or do they mean they will *house* 1000 
Where do people come up with this stuff, anyway?

Dear President Smith,

The Ohio Lighthouse for the Blind and Vision Impaired has been newly formed 
to assist those within the State of Ohio and Nationwide in becoming 
independent and productive citizens.

We are in the process of developing the first working-residential community 
of which will employ more than 1000 individuals.

We would like to have a moment to discuss our project and learn how the NFB 
of Ohio and the Ohio Lighthouse can work together to promote and assist in 
the success of those vision impaired.

Please contact me Wednesday anytime during the day from 9:30 AM through 
average of 9:00 PM at the phone number: 330-297-8938.

In the sincerest of appreciation,
