Sara Bosley Secor, former master of foxhounds at Elkridge-Harford Hunt Club and owner of the fabled sprinter Chase Me, died Saturday of congestive heart failure at her residence, Inverness Farm in Monkton. She was 80. She established the storied tale of Chase Me, a horse that inspired newspaper headlines, a hit Broadway play and a Warner Bros. film with a spectacular -- if bittersweet -- career from 1933 to 1934. Described by friends as naturally relaxed and gregarious, Mrs. Secor loved children and kept her door open to any in the neighborhood.

He just closed his eyes and thought of Bill Clinton. That's how Kyle Secor, the boyishly good looking, 48-year-old co-star of ABC's hit series Commander in Chief, describes his method in developing the role of Rod Calloway, husband of the first female president of the United States. "I got some books on first ladies, because I really didn't know much about the position, and that is basically what I would be taking over. I read about Dolley Madison and Jackie Kennedy, but I still couldn't feel it," the actor says.

If, on a dull day on the set, the boys of "Homicide" ever get around to playing a key childhood game -- who had the best summer vacation? -- five'll get you 10 that Kyle Secor, the tall, quiet young man who plays Det. Tim Bayliss, wins hands down.Reason: His summer vacation movie opened No. 3 in the top 10, earning more than $9 million.Yaphet Kotto and Richard Belzer's "Puppet Masters"? You've got to be kidding. It went nowhere! Ned Beatty's "Radioland Murders"? Into El Tanko!But "Drop Zone," which features Wesley Snipes as a sky-diving U.S. Marshal and Secor in a brief but showy part as "Swoop," a bearded, crazed gravity junkie and free spirit, looks to be the Christmas season's biggest action thing, despite indifferent critics.

Hail to the chief -- Commander in Chief that is, the new ABC series starring Academy Award-winner Geena Davis as the first female president of the United States. As drama, tonight's pilot has its flaws, but it is, nevertheless, one of those electrifying TV productions that instead of simply seeking to divert or amuse, challenges viewers to imagine a reality other than the one they have been conditioned to accept. For all the talk of television "dumbing down" its audience, such programs have the capacity to do exactly the opposite as they create a different vision of American life and invite millions of viewers to spend an hour exploring that new reality each week.

When J.B. Secor turns D. Guilford loose at his farm in Monkton, he sees more than a phenomenal 11-year-old who's won more than a third of his extraordinary 94 races. Secor also sees his own salvation.A recovering alcoholic, Secor, 44, began training the high-strung D. Guilford nine years ago, shortly after Secor's discharge from a rehabilitation center. He credits the game gelding, the second-oldest horse racing at Maryland thoroughbred tracks, with helping him stay sober."He's my once-in-a-lifetime horse," Secor says of the senior citizen owned by Jewelyne Montgomery of Fair Hill.

HERE'S A question even Regis may never ask you - what's the oldest known eel in New York City? If he does, make a "lifeline" call to Dave Secor. The University of Maryland scientist found the eel, 41, under the George Washington Bridge in the Hudson River. And, you might wonder, how does he know 41, not 39, not 42? Actually, Secor knows that and a lot more about that eel, like where and how it has spent each one of its 41 years. Eels from all over North America are generally thought to leave their happy homes after a decade or so and converge, en masse, on spawning grounds in the Sargasso Sea in the Bermuda Triangle, whereupon they all die, amid a glorious effusion of eggs and sperm.

SOLOMONS -- David Secor reaches in his shirt pocket, pulls out what might pass for a white pebble. The object is an ear stone from a 44-inch rockfish caught during the 1992 spring trophy season, and, the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory scientist says, it and others like it are providing insights to the life histories of Maryland's most popular fish.Secor calls himself a fish demographer, and by using the ear stones, or otoliths, he can replot where, when and to a degree why rockfish populations flourish or founder.

VIENNA -- Jill Stevenson is listening to fish. Headphones on, yellow data-recording book in hand, she is kneeling on a boat as she monitors the Nanticoke River's newest residents: 3,000 sturgeon born in New York, raised in Pennsylvania and -- as of yesterday -- Maryland residents."

A camera inside the Sweet Annie gift shop in Lutherville was recording both times David Secor's wife faced masked gunmen intent on robbing her store in the past six months. But there were no cameras outside to capture the men's faces before they put their masks on or the cars they were driving, Secor told members of the Baltimore County Council yesterday. A bill that would require shopping center owners and operators to install video surveillance of public parking areas would go a long way to help identify criminals - and maybe stop them before they commit other crimes, Secor said.

AS DAMAGED as the Chesapeake Bay is from centuries of pollution and exploitation, the only species that called these waters home in Colonial days has declined to perhaps the point of no return. That would be the sturgeon, both shortnose and Atlantic. The larger, more numerous Atlantics were the dreadnoughts of the Chesapeake in the spring as they lumbered up every significant tributary to spawn. They reached as far upstream as Washington on the Potomac, and well into Pennsylvania on the Susquehanna.

Stephen Mason Meginniss II, a retired Air Force colonel, engineer and college instructor, died Thursday of heart and kidney failure at his home in Southland Hills in Towson. He was 84. Family members described him as a humanist, avid reader and a man who possessed a delicious appreciation of the absurd. "Every Thanksgiving he would carve our family turkey with a captured German bayonet from the war," said his daughter, Margaret Meginniss Secor of Monkton. "We kids in the family loved that but mom didn't care for it."

If you missed the sixth- season premiere of the critically acclaimed family drama Tuesday, don't worry, Secor will be appearing in the next seven episodes as Julia comes to work for him. Ultimately, he and Julia will even sleep together. (Hey, this is Fox, after all. Workplaces exist on Fox mainly so characters can meet other characters with whom to mate.
