HAGERSTOWN - Former Washington County commissioner Gregory I. Snook was the guest of honor Friday night at Hagerstown Community College's Ninth Annual Tribute. The event historically has been equal parts praise and parody, but Snook's toasters said they were hard-pressed to find much to poke fun at. "You can't really roast Greg Snook. It's like slapping the Easter Bunny," said HCC Professor Mike Harsh, who has known Snook since they were children. Harsh said Snook cultivates a "kind of Sheriff Andy Taylor atmosphere," referring to the main character from "The Andy Griffith Show.

For the past four years, Jim and Louise Welker's Labor Day getaway has been to the Quincy Ox Roast off Pa. 997 outside of Waynesboro, Pa.. The Williamstown, Pa., couple said they initially came to the Quincy Ox Roast to see David King, the Elvis Presley impersonator, who has performed at the ox roast, but kept coming back for another reason. "The people of Quincy are about the nicest people you are going to meet anywhere," Jim Welker said. Several hours before Saturday's entertainment took to the stage, the Welkers claimed their spots near the stage.

Odds and ends from a columnist's notebook: When it comes time to write the history of Washington County in the 20th Century, one of the longest chapters will be devoted to Ronald L. Bowers, who lost his 1998 bid for a sixth consecutive term as county commissioner. For more than two decades, he was "the people's commissioner," the one elected official people could count on without fail to return their phone calls and get them an answer. His disagreements with other elected officials, like former Hagerstown mayor Steve Sager, were legendary.

QUINCY, Pa. -- "N43 ... O67 ... B10 ... We've got bingo. " Approaching the Quincy Ox Roast on Sunday, visitors could hear the calls of a bingo announcer and smell the roasted meat. They could see swirls of steam rising from the slow roasters when the cooks lifted a metal lid to reveal 1,000 pounds of beef. The community festival, which is in its 76th year, might engage the senses, but it's also relaxing. That's one of the things its organizers like best. "It has always been that way," Molly Gossert said.

QUINCY, Pa. -- The long lines at the kitchen windows told the story. The slow-roasted, boneless beef served up Saturday at the 76th annual Quincy Ox Roast was worth the wait. "There's no question it's the food," said Bill Geesaman, director of the Community Ox Roast Association. More than 10,000 people are expected to attend the traditional Labor Day weekend event and consume close to 2,800 pounds of traditional ox roast fare, Geesaman said. Preparing the meat is an all-day effort that begins about 5 a.m. for Donald Gossert and his crew of volunteers, who cook the meat for about five hours in two large roasters on the ox roast grounds.

This salad is a great way to enjoy the heat of the summer without heating up the kitchen. Fire up the grill and prepare your vegetables, and then cut everything to bite-size portions to lay nicely across the salad. Romaine is certainly not the only choice for lettuce, but often the best when it comes to price and availability. I'd suggest looking at the local farmers' markets to find some unique blends. This is a perfect dish offering both local and sustainable ingredients.
