GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Greg Hoover, director of elementary education for the Greencastle-Antrim School District, was taken off a respirator and spoke with his wife at Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center Thursday following surgery for a ruptured brain aneurysm, a school district official said.

Schools Superintendent P. Duff Rearick said Hoover's condition is critical.

Hoover, 49, complained of having a severe migraine headache on Monday, Rearick said. He is known to have such headaches, the superintendent said. He went to an area hospital for medication and was getting progressively worse. He was flown to Hershey where he was operated on successfully, Rearick said.

"A second aneurism was discovered but it had not ruptured," he said.

Hoover has been working for the school district for more than 25 years, Rearick said. "He grew up and graduated in the system," he said.

A Hershey Medical Center spokeswoman declined to give any information about Hoover's condition.
