CITY COMMISSIONERS MEETING The principle business to come before the mid-month meeting of the City Commissioners, held Dec. -21st, included the Temple Terrace Playground Project_ ; 11open account" owed to B. J. Van Ingen and the United AssetsCorp. and a legislative program to be drawn and presented to the Hillsborough County members of the State Legislature and County Commissioners. In the playground matter it was decided that the most suitable property that appeared to be available for such a project is owned by the County in the 11F11 section and dedicated for public purposes; namely, a school. Since a playground would be needed when and if a school is built it is felt that there should be no objection on the part of the County to the City establishing a playground on this site. Commissioner Howell therefore made the motion that.City Attorney Duff and the Mayor Commissioner go before the Board of County Commissioners and endeavor to have Blocks F-1 through F-4 i .nclusi ve, together with streets abutting these lots be set aside for playground purposes in the City of Temple Terrace. Motion seconded by Comm. Knopke and unanimously approved. In the matter of the "open account" a letter from Mr. B.J. Van Ingen in reply to the letter se' rit by the City, and published in an earlier edition of this paper, was read by the .City Clerk. Mr. Van Ingen stated his position in the matter and feels very strongly that the debt is a legitimate one on the part of the City and had been entered into in good faith by both the City and himself and that payments on same should continue to be. met as they have in the past by refunding the amount of Taxes paid to the City on the property owned by United and 'Mr. Van Ingen. After considerable discussion by members of the Board of City Commissioners and citizens present at the meeting, it was decided that additional information should be obtained from Mr. Van Ingen and the City's record and no further action.taken until receipt of desired information. With the State Legisla.ture convening in the near future, City Attorney Duff pointed out the necessity of the Commissioners preparing any legislative program that they intended to ent to the Hillsborough County members for legislative action. Other business disposed of included a report from the City Attorney to the effect that a Charter had been prepared for the Church and properly recorded, and that a survey of the. property to be deeded to church by City of Temple Terrace would be made during the coming week; legal action that apparently will be necessary against property owners who have failed to pay the Street Improvement Assessment; and the decision of the Commissioners to give all regular City employees a Ohr.is tmas gift as has been the custom in past years., (Note: .The le.tter from Mr! Van Ingen will be published in the next edition of this paper). *. *. *. * * * * *. * CIVIC ASSOCIATION .... The Civic Association held a general meeting, Fri. Dec. 17th, with a good number of present. It was apnounced that the Assn now. has 36 paid memberships.

ti JUDGE AND MRS. LAURENCE AYRES GRAYSON Probably one of the most prominent residents of Temple Terrace is Judge L.A. Grayson; and of course he would not be nearly as prominent without the help and inspiration of his very charming wife, Mrs. Josephine Grayson. The G,raysons came to Temple Terrace just a short time after they were married in April of 1927 and lived here since then. When they first arrived they lived in one of the large apartment houses then located on St. Andrews Ave. At the present time they live in their own home on Bellview Ave. and have lived there for the past twenty years. Judge Grayson served in the first. World War as a pilot and.' returned from overseas service wounded, making it necessary for him to remain in Walter Reed Hospital in Washington from 1919 to 1920. Although both legs were in casts, Judge Grayson couldn't be kept .in the all the time and on one occasion he met the girl who is now his wife. At that time Josephine Cole was living in Washington but originally she had lived in New Orleans, having been born and raised there. Judge graduated from the University of Virginia in 1925 and with his law degree came to Tampa. Although he first said that his only reason' for to Tampa was because he had a job promised to him, furthet discussion brought .forth the fact that Josephine had been in Tampa for several months. What with the Florida Boom collapsing and law work for a young lawyer rather scarce, the Graysons had to wait until 1927 before getting married. 'Although they prefer a quiet life now it is interesting to hear some of the stories both of them tell about the parties and various activities that have occured in the past. Judge Grayson enjoys building things and working with tools. Mrs. Grayson is proud of the fact that the built the garage all by himself but (like other wives)' felt that t;he four years it toolc to build the garage was a little long. She likes to grow flowers and after the Judge plants the vegetable garden she is the ope delegated to take care of it. Judge Grayson served as a City Commissioner in Terrace on several different occasions and has also acted as .City Att orney at various times. He served as Judge of _the Criminal Court during the absence of Judge Himes and .in the past election was elected to serve a full four year term in this important job. It is indeed a pleasure to introducetwo such very nice people and we can assure our readers that being a Judge ;has not made either of them hard to get along with .:. ********************** ***********
