Glenmore H. Drasher, an Army veteran and longtime musician who performed with a Harford County band well into his 80s, died Aug. 19 at a Baltimore County nursing home after falling ill from pneumonia. He was 95. Mr. Drasher was born in Hazleton, Pa. He joined the band at Hazleton High School, where he played the trombone. He was so enthralled with music, his only daughter said, that he did odd jobs as a teenager to pay for lessons to learn other instruments. After graduating from high school in 1930, he enlisted in the Army and soon began a decades-long career in Army bands.

It used to be that when people asked me where to get good crabs, I told them. But I know now that's not really what they want to know, even if they think that's what they want to know.If you want good crabs, go down to Oxford and get a waterman to steam a few for you. He's just caught them. He doesn't use much in the way of seasonings, and he shows you how to pick them the authentic way -- without using a wooden mallet.Failing that, you go to any of Baltimore's crab houses and here's what you get: The crabs (at least this time of year)

The Northeast Baltimore resident was 85."She would go anywhere where there was a piano player and live music," said her sister, Madeline K. Brengle of Parkville. "She used to go into the Glenmore Tavern on Harford Road, order a drink and begin singing. She'd nurse that one drink all night while singing the old songs."

By 8 a.m., 20 minutes after the tow truck left, Thomas was standing on her porch, wondering where her sport utility vehicle had gone.
