Anthony Pasquale "Tony" D'Eugenio, a musician and former deli owner whose booming laugh and Italian cold-cut hoagies were a fixture in downtown Westminster, died Wednesday at Sinai Hospital after complications from heart-valve surgery. He was 65 and lived in Westminster. In addition to running the Giulianova Groceria at 11 E. Main St., which he sold last year, Mr. D'Eugenio had been a working musician since childhood. He specialized in slide trombone but was able to play almost anything, except piano and drums, said his wife of 26 years, the former Marilyn Kay Jordan.

SINCE 1983, the Columbia Concert Band has been a gathering for musicians who want to share their lifelong love of music. And a lucky few, including band director Mike Blackman, have found a lifetime partner there. Blackman, who is also band director at Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School, lives in River Hill village with his wife, Kathie, and 6-month-old daughter, Julianne. The couple met while both were playing clarinet in the band. "At the time I met Kathie, I decided I was going to wait until I finished my master's degree in music education before I ever sought out a wife," Mike Blackman said.

Up strikes the band, pouring forth "Hail to the Chief," that familiar, toe-tapping tune whose majesty remains undiminished even though nobody seems to know the words.The music has come down through the ages, in the blare of the horns and the tapping of the drums of the U.S. Marine Band. For nearly 200 years, this official White House band has provided the soundtrack to history.It played when Thomas Jefferson and every president thereafter took the oath of office.

Gin Talking, the reigning Maryland-bred Horse of the Year, was retired yesterday because of tendon damage in her left foreleg. Robin Graham, her trainer at Laurel Park, said an ultrasound scan revealed the damage after she noticed "different" swelling in a troublesome tendon. "The vet said this was something that might be OK," said Lou Rehak, who owns the filly with Willie White and Bob Orndorff as Skeedattle Associates. "But we just decided to retire her. She's been way too good to us to take a chance of hurting her."
