MAY 30, 2010  .If» j;   WWW.HOIVlETOWNANNAPOLIS.COM  — Annapolis, MD  Wounded warriors say they 'did what was expected'  By Shannon Lee Zirkle — The Capital  Sgt. Chris Santiago of Bowie boards a Coast Guard cutter for a Blue Angels cruise for wounded veterans iast week. Vets on tlie Bay, aided by iocai American Legion Post 7, welcomed wounded troops and their families aboard the ship to view the Blue Angels flight demonstration up close.  Several reflect on experiences while on excursion in Annapolis  By E.B. FURGURSON IH Staff Writer  By tradition, Memorial Day is meant to honor those who have given their lives serving their country. We pause to remember their sacrifice.  But in periods of conflict, like the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, casualties include the seriously wounded, many of whom likely would have died on the battlefield in previous wars.  We need to pause and remember them, too.  Last week, Vets on the Bay, aided by local American Legion Post 7, welcomed wounded troops and their families aboard a U.S. Goast Guard cutter to view the Blue Angels flight demonstration up close and personal.  Some hobbled aboard, still unsteady on their feet or prostheses, while others were wheeled aboard. Most were joined by family members, and all appreciated the effort made to support them and provide a break from the tedium of recovery.  Staff Sgt. Shane Baldwin spent part of  the nearly six hours aboard the James Rankin sitting in a padded command chair on the bridge. Other times he stood, with the aid of crutches, and gingerly made his way up and down the narrow steel steps to his perch or to the mess to grab lunch.  "Today is the longest I have had this on," he said, peering down at his two-week-old left leg.  "It's going on, oh, eight hours," he (See WOUNDED, Page A8)  Busy storm season probable, so be ready  Experts advise residents to have a plan, get emergency supplies  By E.B. FURGURSON III Staff Writer  Tropical storm season starts tomorrow, and now is the time to prepare for what is looking to be an abnormally busy season.  • A list of what you need to be ready for a storm. PajJ«  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's annual preseason outlook, released Thursday, reported an 85 percent chance for an above-normal number of tropical storms this season.  That call is based on several scientific parameters that point to a range of storm possibilities, including up to 23 named storms, 14 hurricanes and seven major hurricanes.  If activity reaches the upper range of those estimates, the season could rival 2005, the busiest season on record. That season generated 15 hurricanes, includ  ing the devastating Katrina.  "If this outiook holds true, this season could be one of the more active on record," NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco said at a hews conference in Washington, D.G., on Thursday. "The greater likelihood of storms brings an increased risk of a landfall. In short, we urge  (See STORMS, Page A13)  Both sides angry over delays from casino suit  Trial expected to end this week, but fight to continue  By ERIN COX Staff Writer  Lawyers will finish arguing in court this week, but the fight over whether to overturn a petition against a casino at Arundel Mills mall will probably drag on all summer.  Both sides say far more is at stake than whether the referendum goes forward, which is why attorneys painstakingly added every detaO to the record and Circuit Court Judge Robert A. Silkworth is expected to take his time issuing a ruling that undoubtedly will be appealed.  Casino opponents say the delays tell county residents their desires are subject to an army of corporate lawyers. Casino developers say the delays cost Maryland $1.1 million a day, for a cumulative $150 million in lost revenue since the petition process began.  "That's an affront to the democratic process that took place in 2008," said Joe Weinberg, a principal at casino developer The Cordish Cos., referring to the referendum passed to legalize gambling in Maryland. "That's what people are mad about. ...

Then there are the people Marcia Kennai sees every day.  Kennai, who oversees the coimty Department of Social Services, has full waiting rooms each day at the DBS locations in Glen Bumie and Annapolis. Sometimes it takes until 2 p.m. for the staff to help each person who walks in and clear the waiting room.  Some people are facing utility bills reaching into the thousands of dollars. Others need food stamps or help getting mental health treatment.  "Everybody is feeling pinched," Kennai said.  This stark contrast between Anne Arundel's "haves" and "have-nots" is made clear in a new report, "Poverty Amidst Plenty:  (See REPORT, Page A13)  WEATHER  86 70  HIGH  LOW  SUNNY: Chance of rain tomorrow, C2  NO PAPER MONDAY  In observance of Memorial Day, T/ieCapitoi will not publish tomorrow.
