From the online StarPress.com article:

“Heintzelman made news last year — when he won the Althea Stoeckel Historic Preservation Award for his restoration of a row of downtown commercial buildings — and again this year — when he was awarded a $44,218 downtown facade restoration grant.

“He and King are both college-educated, younger men who convey the message that the downtown and its adjacent residential neighborhoods, including Old West End, depend on each other for success.

“An art and religion graduate of Wabash College, Heintzelman works downtown in a group of High Street buildings he is restoring. He earns screen time in the documentary because he has done a lot of work restoring housing in the Old West End.”
