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.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Former Washington County Commissioner Gregory I. Snook said Wednesday that he probably will not fill a vacant Maryland House of Delegates seat. Snook was mentioned by political observers as a possible replacement for former Del. Robert A. McKee, who announced his resignation Friday in the wake of a police investigation into possible child pornography at his home in Halfway. McKee represented Subdistrict 2A for about 13 years. Snook said he has not applied to fill the position, and he probably will not. Snook said he has had about 30 phone calls from people encouraging him to apply.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Gregory I. Snook's father used to tell him, "If you want the pats on the back, you've got to be able to take the kicks in the butt. " Snook got that kick in the butt on his first day as president of the Washington County Commissioners in December 1994. That's when he learned the county's finances were in such bad shape that it couldn't afford to make the Board of Education's payroll. The commissioners had to borrow about $2 million so that School Board employees would get their paychecks.

On Tuesday, Gregory I. Snook attended his last meeting as a Washington County Commissioner. After 16 years in the office, he is stepping down to return to private life. He will be missed, but not because he was a showboat or a colorful character. Instead, he was a humble consensus-builder who was always approachable and ready to lend an ear to what citizens had to say. There certainly must have been frustrations during his four terms in office, but a search of The Herald-Mail archives turned up no mentions of angry outbursts or ill-considered rants.

HAGERSTOWN - A Washington County Commissioner accused his fellow board members Tuesday of playing politics with the county's sewer fund over the proposed hospital off Robinwood Drive. Commissioners Vice President William J. Wivell said late Tuesday afternoon that Commissioners James F. Kercheval and Doris J. Nipps held up a vote on whether to waive a $1.1 million sewer allocation fee for the new Washington County Hospital, because they likely would not get a favorable vote. Kercheval said Tuesday that wasn't case.
