Program Helps Disabled Enjoy Des Moines Lake

 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- People with disabilities will have an easier time boating on a popular Des Moines lake thanks to new equipment installed with help from volunteers.
   A ceremony was held Wednesday to dedicate the EZ Launch system at the docks at Gray's Lake Park, about a mile from the city's downtown.
   The system uses a transfer bench and boards to allow people with disabilities to easily drop into a boat. They can use handrails to pull themselves off and on.
   The system was installed thanks to fundraising from the Friends of Des Moines Parks in partnership with the city's Parks and Recreation Department.
