Brian Fether of Fayette is a member of the class of 12 students from Northwest Ohio who completed the state certification exam and the physical fitness requirements of the program.

 “The Law Enforcement Academy at Northwest State is a physically and mentally demanding program,” said Lori Robison, dean of Allied Health and Public Service. “By completing this intensive program, these graduates have shown the dedication and effort necessary for a successful career in law enforcement.”

 In addition to Fether, the 2011 graduating class includes Rashuan Amey (Archbold), Benjamin Baldwin (Pioneer), Steven Brown (Defiance), Tyler Jones (Neapolis), Matthew Kryder (McClure), Jason McQuillin (McClure), Lance Naves (Wauseon), Jessica Piña (Defiance), Rogelio Rubio (Defiance), Justin Ruffer (West Unity) and Ernest Simpson (Pioneer).

 At the graduation ceremony, special recognition was given to Brown who was presented with the Top Gun Award for earning the highest score on the firing range. Ruffer was recognized for earning the top test score in the class.

The Northwest State Community College Henry County Law Enforcement Academy is an eight-month program, with a new class scheduled to begin in August.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
