Kitchen at old building ... By EARL KELLY Staff Writer As trucks delivered playground equipment to the new Li^it House Shelter on Hudson Street in Annapolis, the woman who has been overseeing the new homeless center stepped away to regain her composure. Then, Elizabeth Kinney could fight back the tears no longer as she talked about needy children, and how generous the Annapolis community has been in building the center. "I never thought I would see this day," said Kinney, president of the Board of Directors of the Light House. Around her, the new $8.3 million shelter at 10 Hudson St. was a beehive of activity, as workers touched up paint, instaUed furniture, checked mechanical systems and cleaned doors and windows. Light House Shelter residents will move to the new 24,000-square-foot facility Friday, and the old shelter, which has operated for nearly 20 years at 206 West St., will close. The shelter's owner, Annapolis Area Ministries, plans to sell the old building. The timing for the new shelter couldn't be better. The number of homeless is increasing, and many of them are families with small children, Kinney said. "Our children have never had a. place to play," she said. At long last, she said, Li^t House Shelter can be (See SHELTER, Page A15) Photos by Shannon Lee Zirkle — The Capital exterior of new building on Hudson Street. ... sleeping quarters at new building. and tiie new Idtchen. Pink streak Salons offer pink extensions, other items for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month By ALLISON BOURG Staff Writer It started when we heard from an area spa promoting a new line of pink hair extensions available through October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink strands cost $10 each, with proceeds going to breast cancer research. We wanted one. After all, it's for a good cause. So, we headed to Xsalonce salon in Pasadena, which has sold' the extensions in pale pink, dark pink and hot pink since mid-September. The salon on Fort Smallwood Road has gone all out with "Save the ta-tas" T-shirts and pink ribbon jeweky. The goal is to donate at least $3,500 to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Parole, said stylist Angey PoggioliPoggioli, whose business, ^igey's Tangles, is based at Xsalonce. "We've probably done at least a hundred (extensions)," said Poggioli, who has nine hot pink streaks bonded into her long, curly blonde locks. Concerns about how pink streaks will fly (See FINK.

Campaign finance reports made public Friday show the Maryland Jockey Club donated the entire $3.275 million war chest No Slots at the Mall amassed to rally against the casino. The pro-casino group, Jobs & Revenue for Anne Arundel County, raised $2.6 million. Of that, $600,000 came from a company controlled by casino developer The Cordteh Cos., and $2 million came from Arundel Mills Limited Partnership, which developed the mall. Much of the money raised in the campaign has been spent mainly on advertisements, which both sides have decried as mistruths. With $2.8 million going toward advertising alone. No Slots at the Mall has spent a million dollars more than the Jobs & Revenue group. So far, campaigns have raised $1.7 million more than organizations raised at the same point in 2008, when slots campaigns targeted voters across Maryland. The campaigns in Anne Arundel are exclusively funded by corporations with an economic interest in the vote's (See SLOTS.
