    One Nampa man's life on the silver screen
      When Richard Pimentel was a child, a teacher told his grandmother he would never do anything but sell newspapers. Incredulous, his grandmother defended him, saying her grandson wouldn't sell newspapers, he'd be in them. Decades later, Pimentel isn't only in the papers, his life is the subject of Music Within, which will be released in theaters this weekend. After being disabled in the Vietnam War and inspired by similarly affected veterans and friends (including well-known Portland artist Art Honeyman, who has cerebral palsy), Pimentel wrote "Tilting at Windmills," the training program that eventually laid the foundation for the Americans with Disabilities Act, passed in 1990. Now a Nampa resident, Pimentel chatted with BW about Music Within, getting to know Ron Livingston, and his thoughts on the ADA.
