WASHINGTON COUNTY - Washington County Administrator Rodney M. Shoop announced his retirement Wednesday, the latest wave of change affecting the county's leadership. Shoop's announcement comes in the midst of an election that promises new County Commissioners. Longtime Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook isn't running for re-election and Commissioner Doris J. Nipps was defeated in the Sept. 12 Republican primary. The county also is in the process of attempting to change its form of government from commissioner to charter home rule.

CHEWSVILLE -- The beauty of a pitch is in the eye of the beholder. For Sinjin Shoop, it doesn't matter what Conococheague manager Mike Iseminger or the Valley All-Stars think, a letter-high pitch was the most gorgeous thing he'd ever seen. Shoop connected with a slightly elevated pitch and blasted it over the fence in left-center field in the bottom of the sixth for a decisive three-run home run Thursday to lift Conococheague to a 7-4 victory in the winners' bracket second round of the Maryland District 1 11-12 Tournament.

Washington County Administrator Rodney Shoop said Thursday officials will look into whether an assistant Washington County state's attorney and a county sheriff's deputy did anything improper by going into the courthouse after hours in an attempt to get their preferred duck hunting spots. "We don't condone any county employee using their position to gain an advantage over anyone else. And we will take a look at this closely for improprieties," Shoop said. Washington County Human Resources Director Alan Davis said he probably will bring up the matter at Tuesday's meeting of the Washington County Commissioners.

This could interfere with their ability to provide public safety," Shoop said. He had planned to call the Brunwsick Volunteer Fire Company Friday to ask them to delay the 11th annual Pleasant Valley Frog Eye Mud Bog, which will use 20,000 gallons of quarry water.

tarar@herald-mail.com Washington County Administrator Rodney Shoop on Wednesday asked the Hancock Town Council to consider adopting part of a county ordinance that charges developers a fee if they build homes in areas where schools are at 85 percent capacity or higher. The county amended its Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance in December 2003 that requires developers to pay $7,353 per housing unit in those school areas. The fees will go toward the cost of increasing school capacity, such as building additional classrooms or new schools.

For the second year in a row, the Williamsport baseball team had Wheaton in the first round of the Maryland Class 2A West region tournament. And as it did last year to begin an improbable run to the state title with a 22-0 win, Williamsport blanked the Knights on Monday 17-0. The road to defending the title will be somewhat tougher for the Wildcats on Tuesday when they travel to play No. 2-seed Poolesville at 4:30 p.m. “(Poolesville) is a good team so we'll have to play very well in all phases of the game,” said coach David Warrenfeltz.

It might be easy to lose track of Sinjin Shoop, both in the field and on the lineup card. The 11-year-old Conococheague All-Star made sure he wasn't missed Monday in the second round of the Maryland District 1 11-12 Tournament. Shoop lifted an Airin Martin pitch over the left-center field fence with one out in the bottom of the seventh to give Conococheague a 2-1 walk-off win against West End at Hellane Park. "Fastball," said Shoop of the game's final pitch. "I didn't know it was going to be gone until it went over.
