The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday presented a certificate of merit to Norman Bassett, administrator of Washington County's Office on Disability Issues, for completing a continuing education program.
He received the Training Generalist certification from Ontario, Canada-based Langevin Learning Services Inc., after attending classes in the Washington D.C. area., he said.
The certificate was given to Bassett by Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook.
The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday dedicated three handicapped-accessible fishing piers in Devil's Backbone Park.
Each of the three improved fishing spots has concrete docks with steel railings and a wooden plank with holes for fishing poles.
One of the piers is above the dam on Antietam Creek and the other two are below it. A fourth will be built later.
