Couriering this area this week in 1991 — 30 years ago:

The Clemmons planners voted unanimously 9-0 last week to evaluate the need for a sign ordinance in the village. The planners indicated they will advise the Clemmons Village Council of their plan of action at the Oct. 21 council meeting. A work group headed by Dave Trubica of the Planning Board, along with other planners Chris Jones and Fred Joyner and Mary Cameron of the Appearance Commission met recently to begin work on this matter.

Kathleen Murray of Clemmons, a student at Appalachian State University, has been pledged to Theta Nu Chapter of Alpha Phi at the university. Murray is a graduate of West Forsyth High School and the daughter of William and Joan Murray. The Alpha Phi international fraternity is a voluntary friendship association of collegiate and alumnae women.

Dominating, devastating, invincible. The West Forsyth football team was all that and more in last Friday’s matchup with South Rowan. Playing before an enthusiastic homecoming crowd, the Titans turned in the most inspiring performance of the season en route to a 40-0 romp. The win gave West a 5-0 overall record (2-0 in the CPC) and kept them atop the state’s 4A rankings.

Herbie, watchdog at Jack’ Saw, has bypassed politics this year, shunning both the Clemmons mayoral race and the council elections. He’s got more pressing problems at work. Two pups have invaded. Rocky and Samson, three-month old brothers have been added to the staff at Jack’s. Like Herbie, they’re full-blooded boxers. They’re playful and loud. Obnoxious, Herbie might say.  

The Clemmons entry in the Community Development category at the Dixie Classic Fair won third place and a prize of $150 at last week’s judging. The entry was sponsored this year by the Friends of the Clemmons Branch Library, and stressed the importance of volunteers in making Clemmons a great place to live. Mike Curry, a member of the Friends, said he was very pleased with the third place. “We had a great-looking display and one that will fit well with the overall theme.” 

Ensign Craig Self, son of George S. and Faye H. Self of Woodsman Way, recently completed the Officer Indoctrination School at the Naval Education and Training Center, Newport Rhode Island. Self is a 1986 graduate of West Forsyth High School and a 1990 graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill. He joined the Naval Reserves in March 1991.

Kerry D. Besecker of Clemmons was among 36 recipients of freshman scholarships at Wingate College recently at the Fall Convocation. Besecker is the son of Irv and Connie Besecker of Clemmons. He graduated from West Forsyth High School in 1991.
