Several reflect on experiences while on excursion in Annapolis By E.B. FURGURSON in 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. Coast 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) Report shows hardship amid affluence in area Organizations vow to eliminate growing disparities in county By PAMELA WOOD Staff Writer Anne Arundel County is largely affluent, with large homes, good schools and 39 percent of families earning at least $100,000 per year. Then there are the people Marcia Kennai sees every day. Busy storm season probable, so be ready Experts advise residents to have a plan, get emergency supplies • A list of what you need to be ready for a storm. Page A13 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. 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 sea son could rival 2005, the busiest season on record. That season generated 15 hurricanes, includ ing the devastating Katrina. “If this outlook holds true, this season could be one of the more active on record,” NO AA Administrator Jane Lubchenco said at a news conference in Washington, D.C., on Thurs day. “The greater likelihood of storms brings an increased risk of a landfall. In short, we urge (See STORMS, Page A13) Kennai, who oversees the county Department of Social Services, has full waiting rooms each day at the DSS locations in Glen Burnie 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 AIS) WEATHER NO PAPER MONDAY HIGH LOW SUNNY: Chance of rain tomorrow.

Wounded warriors say they ‘did what was expected’ 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 detail 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. ...
