This year, approximately 60,000 Americans will be diagnosed with Parkinson's, joining the 1 million people already living with the disease in the United States and the 4 million to 6 million diagnosed with it worldwide. Their painful struggle is one that I know all too well. I remember when my dad first had symptoms of Parkinson's, a motor system disorder that results from the loss of certain brain cells. For him, it started with a persistent numbness in his arm and hand that led to a decades-long battle with the ever-increasing symptoms that eventually took his life in 2013.

The colorful horse-drawn carts and calls of a-rabs selling fruits and vegetables on the city's streets have long been a Baltimore tradition. Attendant to that tradition, though, has been concern during the past several years over the treatment of the horses that pull those wagons. Today, a committee set up to review the city's regulations on horses will announce the results of an examination of those rules and hear public input on proposed changes. The hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Clarence H. Du Burns Arena, 1301 S. Ellwood Ave. A final rules proposal could be ready for review by city officials in a month, said Robert Anderson, director of the Bureau of Animal Control.

Richard K. Vessels hesitated when he was signing up for beginning Photoshop, a continuing education course at Howard Community College. Not because the self-employed Web designer didn't need to take the class, or because he wasn't interested or didn't have the time. It's just that during better economic times, when Vessel worked for a large telecommunications firm, his employer would have paid for the course. Now he's on his own. "When it's your own money, you think a little harder," he said.

Zorn, 56, was fired by the Washington Redskins on Jan. 4 after a disastrous second season as their head coach. The Ravens, though, were overwhelmed by his experience: 11 seasons as an NFL quarterback, 11 seasons as a respected NFL quarterbacks coach and a familiarity with their offense. "That's a great resume for us," Harbaugh said. Zorn's primary goal is to continue the development of Joe Flacco into an elite, franchise quarterback.
