Americans know different European countries specialize in different foods - pasta from Italy, sausages from Germany, sauces from France, fish and chips from Great Britain. The same is true of countries in Central America and South America, said Hagers-town resident Liliana Robeson. “We all have all different kinds of empanadas (filled, folded, fried dough). Also, different kind of tortillas, such as arepas (flatbreads) - these are more South American, like Venezuela and Colombia,” Robeson said.

The barges long ago stopped plying the 180-mile Chesapeake & Ohio Canal between Georgetown and Cumberland, Md. But along its path, glimpses of the past remain - from lock houses and aqueducts to dams and pump houses. If these old structures could talk, they might tell of an era when the canal took its place in American history.

City officials took the mayor and Hagerstown City Council on a downtown walking tour Tuesday to get a firsthand look at three city-owned buildings, two of which are undergoing renovations aimed at eliminating the “barriers” for private-sector redevelopment. The tour included stops at 36-40 N. Potomac St., which the city is renovating and plans to lease to commercial and residential tenants, and 43-53 W. Washington St. It also included 170 W.
