PUNXSUTAWNEY — Everyone has a story to tell, but for one local man, his story wouldn't be complete without the generosity of one town — Punxsutawney.

Residing in this very town is a man who has achieved a great many goals despite being partially blind.

Ray Lantz was born on Aug. 21, 1946, to Robert and Rachel Lantz. He was born with congenital cataracts, which left him completely blind.

Taught to walk with assistance from a collie dog, he received his first operation at 2-1/2 years of age on his right eye.
