Couriering Clemmons: What was happening this week in 1992:

A meeting on a proposed K-Mart store near Market Square drew 30 Clemmons residents. Most of the people who attended the meeting were worried about K-Mart bringing more traffic into the village.

Robert Carver, the Charlotte Developer of the store, talked to the group about changes that were made to the site plan, which were suggested by the Clemmons Planning Board.

Carver explained that the store will have a property tax value of $4.5 million and estimated that $250,000 in property taxes would be paid over the next 25 years and that the store would help pay for the sewer system.

Ten students at West Forsyth won Gold Key Art Awards. Klaralise Aasen, Derek Cernak, Katie Faulkner, David Hill, Brian Kazmar, Dung Le, Abbie Smith, Brian Surratt, Daniel Vonseggen and Ashley Weaver all had their works displayed at the Green Hill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro.

The awards are part of a regional competition sponsored by WFMY.

North Carolina governor Jim Martin announced that he would be speaking in Clemmons on February 13 at Tanglewood Park.

Martin would be stopping for part of his “State of the State” address, a series of four speeches addressed to local elected officials.

Casey Crotts, a 14-year old ninth grader at West Forsyth, captured four awards at the American Model and Talent convention in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Crotts, who modeled for Metropolis Model and Talent in Greensboro, won first place for photography, runway modeling and overall for the 13-14 age division. She won second place for her television commercial.
