CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - An effort to build a vocational-technical school for Jefferson County students will have to wait another year now that a bill has died in the Legislature. The bill to let the county build the center passed in the House of Delegates but failed in the Senate, said Del. John Doyle, D-Jefferson. Board of Education members say they want the center so local students will not have to drive 40 minutes to James Rumsey Technical Institute near Hedgesville, W.Va.

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - Considering her husband waited 2 1/2 hours to vote Tuesday morning at James Rumsey Technical Institute, Karen Martin was pretty happy with where she was standing outside the school about 90 minutes before the polls closed. Martin said her husband, Leon, was off work for the day so his extended wait at Precinct 39, beginning at 8:30 a.m., didn't pose a problem. The couple voted at different times because of her in-home day care business and "somebody had to stay with the kids," said Martin, whose daughter came with her to the polls.

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - Close to 500 high school students and their parents have been invited to a job fair Saturday to introduce the students to the Tri-State area's rapidly growing printing industry. The job fair will serve a dual purpose. Not only will students learn about how to land entry-level jobs that can pay up to $9.50 an hour with good benefits, but it will help an industry starved for skilled workers, according to organizers. The printing industry has experienced rapid growth in the last two years, but there has been concern about whether there will be enough local workers with the skills needed to fill such jobs.
