Most people opted to stay inside yesterday. But Sherri Morgan put on her rain gear and stood in the downpour at the corner of Little Patuxent and Broken Land parkways for an hour. "What's a little rain if you've been shot at?" she asked. For the past two months, Morgan and others members of the Patapsco Friends Meeting, a Quaker group based in Ellicott City, have held a silent "peace vigil" from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. every Saturday on the street corner near The Mall in Columbia. During their Dec. 1 vigil, someone took a shot at the group with either a BB or small-caliber gun. The shot hit a sign but missed group members.

Jo-Ann de Belen, who works for Baltimore-based nonprofit World Relief, was recently mobilized to the Philippines to coordinate relief efforts after Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the region and left thousands dead. Though she has worked in crisis situations since joining the organization in 2009, the devastation left by the storm has affected her. Belen, who is Filipino, volunteered to be the sole World Relief representative stationed in the Philippines in part because she was motivated to help her native country.

So he did what he's known to do, when he feels the time is right: He jumped in. Rifkin, 52, an Owings Mills physician and health care entrepreneur who is the managing partner for Mid-Atlantic Health Care LLC, has taken the lead in a group of investors proposing to become majority owners of the Times' publisher, Alter Communications Inc. — a plan to which a key creditor has objected.

While the thought of stretching the body in any number of directions might scare most men, instructor Paul Shapiro says that once you get used to yoga, it brings positive change. "Yoga is a lifestyle," said Shapiro, who holds classes at Yoga on York in Baltimore. "It helps with breathing, balance, your core and every aspect you can think of.

Civil rights veteran Helena Hicks had walked much of the route already, many years ago — decades before the nation's capital memorialized the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in stone. Some things have changed dramatically since then, others not so much. So Hicks took to the streets once more. "We were marching then for jobs and equal pay," said Hicks, of Baltimore, referring to her participation in King's historic demonstration more than 48 years ago, which brought about a quarter of a million people to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to hear the civil rights leader declare his "dream" of equal opportunity.
