   Annapolis Capital Gazette (Newspaper) - November 25, 2010, Annapolis, Maryland                                 Today in Entertainment: Our guide to the best takeout » chock-full of Black Friday savings Meet All-County football teams / Bi  Body scans don't deter BWI holiday travelers  No disruptions on one of busiest travel days of year  By ALLISON BOURG Staff Writer  Passengers flying out of BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport yesterday seemed largely unfazed by heightened security measures that required them to pass through full-body imaging equipment at security checkpoints.  Those declining to go through the body scanners had to go through "enhanced pat-downs" performed by Transportation Security Adminis  tration officers. Activists angered by the stricter security measures had urged passengers to "opt out" of the scanning yesterday and undergo the slower pat-down, in theory causing backlogs and disruptions on one of the busiest travel days of the year.  Bracing for protests at airports across the country, TSA officials issued a statement Tuesday asking passengers to cooperate with agents for their own safety.  "On the eve of a major national holiday and less than one year after al-Qaida's failed attack last Christmas Day, it is irresponsible for a group to suggest travelers opt out of the very  (See SECURITY, Page A6)  By Joshua McKerrow — Capital-Gazette  Passengers wait In Intermittent lines at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport yesterday.

Gillespie — Capital-Gazette  At We Care and Friends' annual community Thanksgiving Dinner at the Stanton Center on Monday, Yasmine Gross, 10, gives her brother Tashawn Gross, 3, a kiss and some holiday dressing.  Local charity down to $1,000 in bank  By EARL KELLY Staff Writer  We Care and Friends, a "shoestring" charity that each year gets upward of 100 drug addicts into a rehab program, may be on the verge of collapsing, according to the group's leaders.  The group helps the homeless find housing and jobs, runs feeding stations for the hungry and has summer programs for inner-city children.  "It is a shoestring budget, and we can't tie the laces sometimes," said We Care and Friends board president  Julie Shay.  Normally, We Care and Friends receives a yearly $51,000 grant from Annapolis, which amounts to about two-thirds of its yearly income. That was cut to $36,000 last year, and now is $0, because the city can't afford to donate the money, according to We Care and Friends board members.  The group's founder, Larry Griffin, works for free.  He said We Care and Friends has "$1,000 in the bank right now, and that's going to go for Christmas," when the group will donate toys to about 300 needy children.  We Care and Friends is an Internal Revenue Service-approved 501(c)(3) charity, meaning that contributions to it are tax-deductible. The organization operates out of a city-provided 8-by-8-foot room in the Stanton Center in  downtown Annapolis. The office is staffed by volunteers.  We Care and Friends also runs a simimer program aimed at teaching children life skills, and keeping them out of trouble.  The group is having a fundraiser on Dec. 5 at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, and has just unveiled a pledge drive in which it is asking concerned citizens to give whatever they can.  Alice Johnson, a public housing resident, was among the first to sign up, and is giving $12 per month.  "That's what we should be doing, helping ourselves," she said. "You do good, it comes back to help our community."  Larry Griffin's role  (See CHARITY, Page A13)  Thanksgiving memories:  Unexpected reunions, gridiron debacles and lots of food  At least once, a Thanksgiving becomes memorable. It could be the first time the wicked in-law comes to dinner, the time you encounter the generosity of a stranger, the time your footbaU team unexpectedly wins  — or the time you learn frying a turkey isn't sucli a Safe idea.  The universal experience of Thanksgiving is just that  — universal.  In the spirit of the holiday, The Capital-Gazette staff serves up tales of Thanksgiving from different comers in our community.  Unexpected feast  With no supervisors at the county police Southern District station on Thanksgiving two years ago, Lt. Frank Tewey had no choice but to stay behind while his wife and two sons drove to the Eastern Shore for a home-cooked meal.  He walked into the police station, alone, and feeling down about missing out on family festivities.  Tewey was walking to his desk when he noticed f"'"® p»^®'®  dozens of containers of food. Lt.
