The only thing between him and his interests is the 2002 conversion van he has nursed along through structural and mechanical failures, patching it together the best he could.
“We’ve rigged it like a MacGyver mobile,” he said, referring to TV’s science-minded secret agent.
Langowski and co-workers entered Routzahn in an online contest that concludes in May, National Mobility Awareness Month. The public may vote for a person to win the kind of specially equipped van he needs to get around.
Langowski helped write Routzahn’s nomination for the prize: “There are countless days his van won’t start or parts are rusted, broken or missing.”
“If he misses work, it’s usually because of his van,” Langowski said. “He’s here every day he can be.”
Routzahn brings something unique to the students, she said: “a little bit of hope that maybe it’s not so bad.”
He finds that students who are having a bad day or a difficult time may be more open to him than others.
“It’s so rewarding,” he said. “They’ll open their door. … You want to be there.”
Two great events at Fox Haven this weekend!
Frederick in Southern Living Mag April 2014
There were way more pictures in the print magazine article, several nice shots taken in the downtown area to accompany the text you read on the website. Yay!
The reports show which restaurants were inspected as well as any health violations. If a critical violation is found, the restaurant must correct it immediately while the inspector is present.
Most common violations: “Potentially hazardous foods held to proper hot and cold temperatures; adequate equipment provided.” and “Food protected from contamination, spoilage and adulteration.”
It’d be nice to know examples of what those violations entail.
36 South Market Street
Any idea what is going on with the old Market Street Bagel space? I walked by and the interior was gutted with building permit posted in the window but no other information.

Anglers could be dropping a line in a cleaned-up Culler Lake by summer 2015, with the chance of hooking a catfish.
The Friends of Baker Park will get started this year on the organization’s long-term plan to clean and beautify the lake, near West College Terrace and West Second Street, in Baker Park.
Residents are most excited about the parts of the project that will enhance the atmosphere and restore recreation around the lake, such as rebuilding the stone fountain, but the most important part is improving the health of the lake, which was created as a stormwater management project in 1939, said Peter Brehm, board president of Friends of Baker Park.
