I. The staggering figures — with three months still to go in the year — already have established 1989 as the decade’s golden year of growth throughout the county. At least one official finds no fault with that description. Cities, County Breakdown Page UA “I would say that’s true,” said Aiken City Manager Roland H. Windham after hearing figures indicating the building surge probably has shattered records for growth in the county and its municipalities. Windham said he couldn’t remember another year that could match the growth in 1989. Permit records obtained from the cities of Aiken and North Augusta and the county show Aiken leading with $52.9 million in added valuations. The county is second with $47.8 million, and North Au gusta ranks third with $9.8 million. For the month of September, Aiken led all three governments with $4.7 million in permits, while the county was second with $4.11 million worth. North Augusta figures for the 30 days showed $501,811. About Aiken’s nine-month growth, Windham said, “I know this is a record for us. There’s no question about that.” Pleased with the figures, the city manager noted, “At one time, if we got three million dollars a year in new buildings we thought we had a good year.” Aiken’s numbers for the last nine months were compiled mainly on single- (Please See BUILDING, Page UA) A Shining Classic Game I Oakland beat San Francisco 5-0 in the World Series opener.

Shooting Outside Club Puts 4 In Hospital By CARL LANGLEY Staff Writer WAGENER — Gunfire outside a Wagener club early Saturday ended in four people being shot with a small caliber pistol and another jailed on four assault and battery warrants, the Wagener police chief said. Chief M.W. Blackwell said the shootings erupted shortly before 2 a.m. at a nightspot called the Can Do Club on S.C. 39 inside the town limits. Chief Blackwell said John Michael Valentine, 26, of Aiken, was jailed following an investigation. He is being held in the Aiken County Detention Center. Chief Blackwell identified those wounded as Henry Scurry, 23, shot in the head; Matthew Jackson, 21, of Salley, shot in the groin; Tyrone Davis, 20, of North, shot in the back and a female juvenile, shot in the buttocks. A spokesman at HCA Aiken Regional Medical Centers said Scurry was in inten sive care and listed in “guarded condition.” Jackson, Davis and the juvenile were admitted for treatment and their conditions are stable, the spokesman. Chief Blackwell said the shootings followed an argument that developed into “pushing and shoving” inside the club and spilled outside where the shootings started.

Two years ago Friday, the Dow Jones industrial average plunged 108 points — a warning of the crash to come (Mi Monday, Oct. 19. On Friday, the blue-chip index lost 190 points, the second biggest loss in the stock market’s history. What will happen Monday? The coincidental pattern of events has been eerie. But most stock market experts do not think the second anniversary of the 1987 stock market crash will be marked this year with a repeat performance on Wall Street. Andrew Perry, a financial advisor with Prudential-Bache, was in his office Saturday fielding calls from clients. “People Wall Street: Another Look are asking, ‘What’s going on? What do you think?”’ he said. “I haven’t had anybody really say, let’s get out.” “My best guess is we could see another IOO points down or so” Monday, said Gary Van Arkel, a Butcher & Singer stockbroker. At that point, he said, “Money managers and foreign buyers will begin to look for bargains.” Friday’s drop paralleled to an uncanny degree the 108-point Dow drop on a Friday exactly two years ago, which proved (Please See BROKERS, Page HA) Delta Jetliner Catches Fire In Salt Lake City Georgia Tech 30, Clemson 14 v. By The Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY - A Delta Airlines 727 with up to 21 people aboard caught fire during a stop here Saturday, injuring six and leaving a gaping hole in the aircraft, officials said. “There was a bang, and the stewardess told everyone to exit through the rear door,” said passenger Jerome Stumborg of Bakersfield, Calif. Passengers calmly left the plane via the rear steps, he said. The blaze was quickly extinguished. Five male Delta crew members, including the first officer, and a male passenger were treated at hospitals for smoke inhalation, and released, officials said. The fire broke out in a bin housing the Boeing 727’s computer and electronic equipment in the belly of the aircraft below and behind the cockpit, Fred Rollins, Delta’s district marketing director, said at a briefing. He said investigators were trying to determine the cause. The airplane, which has a seating capacity of 120, had made a scheduled stop here en route from Los Angeles to Edmonton, Alberta. Stumborg, who boarded the plane in Los Angeles, said he and about 20 others were waiting for the aircraft to take on Salt Lake City passengers shortly after 2 p.m. when smoke started pouring out of a vent in the first-class section. Rollins, however, said only about five people were on the plane when the fire broke out. Airport firefighters surrounded the aircraft within 90 seconds of the 2:19 p.m. alarm, and had the fire out 15 minutes later, said Airport Operations Manager Ron Malin. “We’re all very grateful” it occurred on the ground, Rollins said. The flight was to have left for Edmonton with 86 passengers at 2:42p.m. Bill Goldstone, who was waiting to take the flight home to Edmonton, said he saw smoke and flames billowing from the plane as he waited inside the airport near a window. Stumborg said no one aboard the aircraft panicked, and praised the (Please See DELTA, Page 11A) Staff Photo By David Kidwail STINGING RUN: Georgia Tech’s Jerry Mays heads for the end zone during the Yellow Jackets’ stunning upset over Clemson.
