Caleb Dorsey "Mike" Pascal, a retired thoroughbred trainer whose Betrayed once paid $202 for a $2 bet, died of pneumonia complications Tuesday at Lorien Mays Chapel. The Monkton resident was 88. He was the son of Edward Louis Pascal and Frances Colgate Cherbonnier, a well-known Maryland horsewoman who was expelled from school when she was found riding astride, instead of sidesaddle. In 1910, she set a jumping record, according to her obituary in The Baltimore Sun. Mr. Pascal, who was born in Michigan, lived on a family estate known as Haille's Adventure and Betty's Delight, adjacent to the Timonium racetrack.

The secret of great conducting, said the French master Pierre Monteux with a smile, is never to look encouragingly at the brass section.Ever shushed by conductors intent on balancing their precious string and woodwind sonorities, brass players often sit and dream of circumstances when they can really cut loose.Oh, there are occasional Janacek "Sinfoniettas" and Mahler "Firsts" where they can let it fly, but in most of the repertoire, the conductor poops the party just as things start to get interesting.

The National Audubon Society has sold a 950-acre wildlife sanctuary it was given on the Eastern Shore to former Anne Arundel County executive Robert A. Pascal, who said Friday he plans to raise organic cattle and hay on part of it. Pascal and Audubon both declined to disclose the purchase price, though state assessment records valued the land and six homes there at $8.5 million. The waterfront estate near Bozman in Talbot County was once a hunting preserve for the DuPont family. It was donated to Audubon 13 years ago by Jean Ellen duPont Shehan to be a nature preserve and outdoor education center.

A former Anne Arundel County executive has teamed up with a Prince George's County businessman in an attempt to buy a harness-racing track that could become a profit dynamo if slot machines are legalized in Maryland. Robert A. Pascal confirmed yesterday that he and partner Carl D. Jones are among the dozen groups bidding to purchase Rosecroft Raceway in Oxon Hill in Prince George's. Because of its proximity to Washington, the track is considered a lucrative venue if the General Assembly allows slot machines at racetracks, a priority of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. "It's a good piece of property," said Pascal, who was a Republican state senator before serving as Anne Arundel executive from 1974 to 1982.

Peggy Cronyn believes seniors from the Pascal Center for Senior Citizens in Glen Burnie understand the concept of volunteering."You don't have to explain community development to them," said Ms. Cronyn, director of SHARE, which stands for Self Help and Resource Exchange.

Opera AACC paired Gian Carlo Menotti's rarely performed cantata The Death of the Bishop of Brindisi with his familiar Christmas opera Amahl and the Night Visitors for three recent performances. On a Saturday afternoon, the audience was predominately schoolchildren. They seemed enchanted by Amahl and not frightened by The Bishop, indicating that this performance could appeal to everyone from young novice to casual listener to musical cognoscenti. Amahl and the Night Visitors - written expressly for television and originally broadcast by NBC on Christmas Eve 1951 - is the story of a poor, crippled shepherd boy and his destitute mother who are visited by the Magi following the star of Bethlehem.

Retired engineer and businessman Gilbert Pascal says he has been interested in airplanes since he was in a stroller, and he likes to fly around the country in his Cessna with his wife, visiting museums. Recently, he traveled across the continent in hopes of landing a much larger plane: the 140,000-pound, Middle River-born Martin Mars, the largest production seaplane ever built. Pascal is chairman of the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum's board, and he describes the endeavor to bring the Mars back from British Columbia to where it was built as a "natural pursuit."
