pirit of JEFFERSON and FARMER'S ADVOCATE News/State Wednesday, May 15, 2013 A CHARLESTON -- West Virginia law enforcement officials are seizing meth- amphetamine labs at a record pace in 2013. They have seized 200 meth labs to date, nearly approaching the 288 they shuttered in all of last year. Law. enforcement is on a pace to seize about 570 labs this year, despite a new ,law intended to slow the proliferation 9f meth labs. The size of meth labs has gotten small- er as the number of busts has spiked. Still, the smaller meth-making opera- tions are just as toxic as larger, tradition- al labs. LOGAN Student's suspension investigat- ed: Logan County school officials have hired a private investigator to look into the circumstances surrounding the sus- pension of a middle school student who wore a National Rifle Association T-shirt to school. Eighth-grader Jared Marcum received a one-day suspension last month for causing a disruption at the school. Allen Larieris has said his stepson was. waiting in line in the school cafeteria when a teacher ordered him to remove the T-shirt or turn it inside out. In a news release, school officials say they hired an independent investigator to ensure a complete, objective evaluation of the situation. The investigator's report is expected soon. Superintendent Wilma Zigmond also noted that shirts that depict guns or pro- mote the NRA are not expressly forbid- den by school policy.

WVU to debut college for unde- clared majors: West Virginia Universi- ty is starting a centralized college to help students with undeclared majors. University College dean Elizabeth Dooley says one goal of the program expected to begin July 1 is to improve WVU's student retention and graduate rates. WVU says the University College will serve as an "academic hub" for general studies, exploratory and nontraditional students, among others. About 7,800 WVU students will be served through the college. The college's ultimate goal is to have students focused on a particular path by their sophomore years. The college will partner with the Ca- reer Services Center, which offers career counseling and career development pro- grams. Dooley says the college's main hub will be in the Student Services Center in Morgantown. OCEANA Residents upset with documentary's message: Some Oceana residents are upset over the portrayal of their south- em West Virginia town in a documentary abotit prescription pill abuse. 'The film "Oxyana'" chronicles the lives of people addicted to Oxycontin. Filmed by Sean Dunne, it was part of the lineup at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in March. Resident D.J. Morgan says the vast majority of townspeople aren't addicted to prescription pills and that the perva- sive drug problem isn't limited to Ocea- na. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, West Virginia has the second-highest rate of drug over- dose deaths in the nation. Morgan says the community will use the documentary as motivation to deal with the drag epidemic.
