Top Stories of 2016: John Waters’ Kidney Stones, SNL’s Kate McKinnon Tries Out a Baltimore Accent and More

For many of us, the past 364 days didn’t add up to a great year. This year was rife with stories about political chaos, obituaries for celebrities who left us too soon, ongoing violence in Baltimore and abroad, divisive police-involved incidents and court rulings, more political chaos and plenty else. But a freakshow year like this one also gave us plenty to laugh (or least smirk) about as we pondered the present and the future. Much of the humor produced by 2016 was dark, but sometimes that mixture of doom and laughter is exactly what people need to get by. With that in mind, we give you our most-read stories from 2016.

Native Baltimorean Lisa Millspaugh Schroeder spent the majority of her career leading a charge to revitalize a 13-mile swath of waterfront in Pittsburgh, transforming it from a largely abandoned wasteland to a prosperous center of commercial and recreational activity that connects various focal points in the city. Now, she’s taking on a similar task in Baltimore.

As the recently appointed CEO of the Parks & People Foundation, Schroeder has big plans for the 32-year-old organization, which over three decades has made deep inroads in the lives of urban residents. Among its many initiatives, the foundation is credited with bringing the first urban Outward Bound program to Baltimore, developing recreational programs in which over 30,000 city youth have participated, and forming a literacy-based free summer camp that to date has served more than 17,000 Baltimore City students.
