Now playing with a puppy on an Anne Arundel County farm, Beretta was on her way to being slaughtered when a crash during transport opened up an opportunity for her to be adopted by trainers at Clarity Riding in Davidsonville. They’re part of GAIT, short for Gaited Advocate Intervention Team, a national organization based in Montgomery County devoted to the rescue of gaited horses, who have a lateral gait rather than the traditional trot. “A lot of rescues didn’t know what to do with them or how to ride them. People think that they’re an alien species, but they’re just normal horses,” GAIT’s president, Denise Parsons, said. Beretta, who’s participated in a horse expo in Pennsylvania, and her foal Saffie are among eight horses Clarity Riding caretaker and trainer Elizabeth Farina has through GAIT rescues.

Nearly 20 years ago, Roxana Rodas fled her ex husband and the violence in her home country when she left El Salvador for the United States. Pictured here with her dog Sparrow, she’s now one of around 20,000 Salvadorans living in Maryland under Temporary Protected Status, a designation that lets people live, work, drive and have families in the U.S. However, the Trump administration's State Department might revoke that status soon — forcing people like Rodas to make the difficult decision of whether to return to their home country or stay in the United States under the shadows. “It’s a relief to be here, and it’s a relief I never felt in El Salvador,” Rodas, a 43-year-old mother of three in Baltimore County, told The Baltimore Sun through an interpreter. “But now, I’m very nervous and very scared.” (Photo by Ken Lam/Baltimore Sun)

Ever since dinosaurs grew feathers and became birds, they’ve migrated with the seasons in search of food. Cities emerged, and with them lights and buildings with reflective glass. Once drawn into a city, they are confused by urban architecture. They see what looks like a tree. Really, it’s the reflection of a tree. Fwack.

Up to a billion birds die each year by colliding into windows. Volunteers with Lights Out Baltimore collect dead birds from around Downtown Baltimore every morning during migration season.

Their mission is to document the types and numbers of birds falling prey to Baltimore’s architecture, and to use that data to learn more about migratory patterns — and to advocate for change in the way owners and managers light their buildings. (Photos by @xtinatkacik / Baltimore Sun)

This past weekend, for the second time this year activists flooded #Baltimore streets with the message “Nobody kill anybody.” #Ceasefire events, including a vigil, basketball tournament, film screening, barbecue and peace walk, continued even after a fatal shooting Saturday morning. Participants said the violence doesn’t make the mission any less worthwhile. "People need to see we’re supporting a community many have forgotten," Janeen Johnally, 25, said.

Russell Wattenberg, founder of The Book Thing, has really only ever wanted to do one thing -- "give away books." But his dream nearly turned to ash in March 2016 when a fire devastated the free book warehouse. On Saturday, Wattenberg returns to his original ambition with the much-anticipated reopening of The Book Thing, where community members can see what he’s accomplished and, of course, grab some free books.

Columbus Day is complicated. Italian-Americans have adopted the 15th-Century explorer from Genoa as an hero, and in Baltimore, celebrate his legacy with an annual wreath-laying and parade through the city. "People
who came here didn’t have a lot of Italian heroes to look up to,” Bill Martin, president of the Associated Italian American Charities of Maryland, told The Sun. "[Columbus] became that figure.” Martin’s own father changed the family name from "Martinuzzi" to avoid discrimination in the 1950s.

But to others, Columbus is a villain. In August, someone took a sledgehammer to a Baltimore monument honoring Columbus located in Herring Run Park. A video posted to YouTube by a user named “Popular Resistance” showed a man repeatedly striking the base of the monument. Another person held a sign that read: “Racism, tear it down.” The monument, constructed in 1792 and believed to be the oldest in the country, is now to be rebuilt and rededicated.
