It’s leaf blowing and raking season in North Carolina! What to do with the leaves? I spoke with town hall today and they said to remember that all leaves you want picked up must be in bags. No more than 10 bags of leaves or any other yard debris will be picked up per week per household.
The Board of Commissioners meeting at 7:30 pm last night was brief, but there was important discussion before and during the meeting.
- The board met at 6 pm yesterday with architect David Creech and his staff. The new town hall might be smaller because the estimated budget was $1 million more than Town Manager Brian Welch wants to spend. Board members also commented on the project’s design.
- The board approved construction of the Lawyers Road sidewalk connecting Traditions at Lawyers Glen to Brighton Park.
- Mayor Ted Biggers attended the meeting last night, and he thanked everyone for their support during his recovery from shoulder surgery last month.

The Board of Commissioners deferred a decision on the proposed sidewalk connecting The Traditions at Lawyers and Brighton Park. The decision was deferred so the board can determine the safest location for the sidewalk intersection. The project will be discussed September 25 at the next board meeting.

The Bulldogs got off to a slow start, but thanks to a stingy defense, outlasted the Cougars tonight 31-13 at Vance. In a light drizzle most of the game, Markel Moore rushed 15 times for 102 yards and a touchdown and sophomore Jawaun Edwards ran for 40 yards and two TDs.
