Top Stories: Hurricane Harvey Presents Tough Choices, The Story Behind Worthy Threads Apparel, Wit & Wisdom’s Pig Roast


Our most popular read from this week plays with the heartstrings. Seeing photos of animals stranded by Hurricane Harvey, and reading about a boy who died trying to rescue his sister’s cat from the flood, columnist Marion Winik stopped to consider how people react differently to a disaster that threatens both humans and their beloved pets.

After speaking with her daughter, Jane, mother and child appeared to be at odds. While Marion wouldn’t hesitate to rescue or wait behind for her miniature dachsund or one-year-old tabby cat, Jane asked the inevitable, crucial question: “Isn’t it more important to save people?”

What followed was a heartwarming ode to the bond between human and beast, homing in on what makes those ties so strong in the comfort of one’s home. If you have a cat or dog — or both — that you love, surely you can relate.

Top Stories: Baltimore Klan Member Arrested, Two Local Officials Blocked from Hogan’s Crime Meeting, Later Start Times at 3 Private Schools


Our most popular story this week concerned a 52-year-old Baltimore City resident named Richard Preston, who authorities last weekend pegged as the guy who fired a shot at a black protester during the Aug. 12 unrest in Charlottesville, Va. As it turns out, Preston is also an imperial wizard of Rosedale’s Ku Klux Klan chapter. Several years ago, he tried to convince locals at a Klan meeting in Elkton that his white supremacist organization is somehow not a hate group.

The ACLU of Virginia said it sent the clip of Preston allegedly firing a pistol (and possibly shouting the n-word) at a black man nearby wielding a homemade flamethrower. Police showed up at his house on Cedonia Avenue in Northeast Baltimore’s Cedmont neighborhood on Saturday. He was formally charged in Charlottesville General District Court with one felony count of discharging a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school.

Preston is no stranger to (alleged) criminal behavior. State court records show he was charged with assault and use of a deadly weapon with intent to injure in 2003, first-degree rape in 1991 and assault in two other incidents. In each case, the charges were eventually dropped.
