Kennedy Baker, 7, of Goreville, rides Dauber with the assistance of Dallas Broeker, a senior from Chadron, Nebraska, studying nursing, during a session of Specialized Equine Services and Therapeutic Riding on Monday, May 1, 2017, at Giant City Stables in Makanda. The session marked the second time Baker was able to ride a horse without the assistance of another rider to support her. “It’s like when you first see your kid making the first two steps by herself,” said Santiago Tomas, barn manager at the stables who typically rides with Baker. “It kind of gives you pride.” (Jacob Wiegand | @jawiegandphoto)

Jodi Witthaus, a visually impaired graduate student in social work from Centralia, stands with her guide dog Nika while waiting to cross South Lewis Lane on Sunday after walking down East Grand Avenue from her apartment at Aspen Court. The intersection is the site for a proposed roundabout, which she said can be a hazardous obstacle for pedestrians to cross. “I got my dog for independence,” Witthaus said. “If they don’t do [the roundabout] right, that completely wipes away my independence.”
