5th Army Stars and Stripes (Newspaper) - December 10, 1989, 5th Army front, 5th Army front Sports Michigan Beats Duke Page IB A Quick Read Landlord Seizes Pets For Back Rent NEW ORLEANS (AP) - John Chambers was afraid Lynell Zelenka might skip town before paying him the $12,000 in back rent he claims she owes. So he got a court order to seize her property — including her pets, Iris the dog and Whitehill the cat. Especially her pets. "They are just like my children and this is just like someone kidnapping my children and holding them hostage for ransom,” said Zelenka. “I think I’ll do anything they want.” Chambers said he knew how much his tenant loved the animals, and that’s why he took advantage of a Louisiana statute that considers pets chattel. Zelenka said she only owes $6,000 in back rent on her apartment. Delivery Boy's Death Results In Citation INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The owner of a Domino’s pizza franchise has been charged with violating two state labor regulations and could be fined $1,000 in connection with a delivery boy’s death, state officials say. It is the first time the store owner has been cited in the June 3 death of Jesse K. Colson, 17, of suburban Plainfield. Colson was making a pizza delivery on a rain-slicked road in Morgan County when his company-owned truck struck a utility pole. His mother, Suzanne Boutros, has criticized Domino’s policy of guaranteeing a pizza delivery within 30 minutes or less, a policy she believes contributed to her son’s death. Cross Country Pizza Inc. of Brownsburg, which owns three Domino’s outlets including the one in Mooresville where Jesse worked, violated two rules of the Indiana Department of Labor, officials said Friday. Mooresville is IO miles southwest of Indianapolis. Weather Cloudy By Tonight Skies will be sunny today with a high in the mid-50s and low in the lower 40s. But clouds will roll in again Monday, with a chance of rain and a high in the lower 50s. Please see Page 16A for details. Deaths Trannie M.

Aiken’s Fighting Green Hornets end their season at 12-3, while the state champion Yellow Jackets finish at 15-0. Game Story..............................Page    IB The cold, rainy weather made for conditions that hurt both teams, but especially Aiken, because it further hindered their ability to get leverage against the heavier Greer players, according to defensive tackle Marc Widener. Greer, which has two Shrine Bowl picks on its team, was favored by two touchdowns over Aiken. All 13 Greer points were scored in the first quarter in back-to-back possessions. Aiken scored its lone touchdown in the fourth quarter, as Shed Harris went over from the four. A roughing the kicker penalty later in the game killed any hopes the Green Hornets might have had. Aiken head coach Dusty Triplett acknowledged Greer’s football talent, but also paid tribute to his team’s effort. He said, “We came up here to play a hard 48 minutes and to win, and that’s all that we could ask of them.” “We just ran out of time,” said Aiken guard Shedrick Clemons after the game. “If we just had a little more time.” Staff Photo By Ginny Southworth TOUGH LOSS: Aiken coach Jim Canepa consoles Mike Waters (81) following Saturday night’s 13-7 loss to Greer in the AAA state championship game at Irmo High School stadium. From Staff Reports Sleet fell briefly on Aiken Saturday evening, and surrounding communities reported snow flurries mixed with rain. But according to the National Weather Service, thoughts of a white Christmas are premature. The town of Gloverville and parts of Augusta reported snow flurries, but the icy precipitation did not stick even though temperatures dropped into the 20s during the night. The Aiken Christmas Parade and the Midland Valley Christmas Parade were cancelled Saturday because of the cold, wet weather. Precipitation began Friday, with clouds dumping heavy rain most of the day. The moisture turned to flecks of ice mixed with rain Saturday as temperatures dropped into the low 30s. Rain, sleet and flurries stopped late in the evening, when clouds began to decrease. But other areas were not so lucky. Wintry storms brought snow and freezing rain to several Southeastern states, and scattered snow across the nation’s northern tier Saturday. Much of the Northeast remained in the grip of a cold spell. (Please See WINTER’S, Page 5A) Data Shows Building Off In November By CARL LANGLEY Staff Writer Aiken County and its two major munci-palities posted figures showing an overall slowdown in building activity for the month of November, but the new gains still sent total county construction past the $130 million mark for the year. For the month, new valuations in all three areas soared past the $9 million mark. North Augusta, although trailing in the totals for the year, was the only government to show an increase in November. The city’s permit values jumped from $545,000 in October to $625,000 in November. While North Augusta was posting its increase, the city of Aiken and the county released figures showing declines of more than $1 million each from October through November. Aiken County, with $4,689,000 worth of permits in November, was almost $1.2 million below its October posting of $5,857,000. The city of Aiken dropped from $4,814,000 in October to $3,725,000 in November. For the year, the city of Aiken is the runaway leader with $61.4 million construction. November Building Permits!

Saying that no one would have believed it possible isn’t quite true. North Augusta coach Bill Utsey, his excellent staff and players obviously had an idea that this would happen all along. The Yellow Jackets also made believers of many Lower Richland fans after the game. Some Diamonds fans could be heard saying “I knew they were 7-7; I didn’t think they would be that good.” Things got off to a shaky start for North Augusta. The Yellow Jackets were unable to move the ball on their first possession and Lorenzo Nealious fumbled the ball, but quarterback Richard Davis recovered it to maintain possession for North Augusta. Lower Richland fullback Frankie Rivers turned the ball back over to the Yellow Jackets when he suffered the first of three first half fumbles. Davis took advantage of the turnover when he scored on a 3-yard quarterback sneak.
