Couriering Clemmons — This week in 2001

Couriering this area this week in 2001 — 20 years ago:

Four appointments were made to the Clemmons Planning Board, three to the Zoning Board of Adjustment and three to the Appearance Commission at Monday night’s council meeting. The planning board appointments were Darren Cranfill, Bill Hearn, John K. Miller Jr., and Dan Monroe. Zoning Board appointments included Ray Bedsaul, Spencer Greene and Frank Haas. Susan Howard, Tim Howard and Jay Jordan were appointed to the appearance group.

During his junior year at West Forsyth High School, John Rhodes did not want to follow the typical post-graduate path. “I didn’t want to go to college or technical school like everyone else. I wanted to do something different, to travel,” he said. Rhodes decided he would enter the military after finishing high school, but his mother did not share his enthusiasm. Fortunately, the young man found a way to combine his desire for the unconventional and his mom’s wish for the traditional. He enrolled in the United States Military Academy, better known as West Point. Now, three years later, Rhodes is a rising senior who will receive a bachelor’s of science degree and be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the army upon graduating next year.

Ed and Frances Lentz of Clemmons celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on June 12. They have three sons, Eddie Lentz and wife Debbie, Clay Lentz and wife Janice and Denny Lentz and his wife Carrie. They also have seven grandchildren. The couple celebrated their anniversary with a visit to Blowing Rock.
