., THE PORTER FAMILY ---, Because Frank Porter is a man of his word the Porter family now resides in Temple Terrace. Mr. Porter was transferred from Jacksonville to Tampa and both Mr. and Mrs. Porter had looked and advertised in vain for a house to move into. Through a lucky break they were advised that th,e _home they .now. li-ve i n (belonging to Joe and Beth Powell) was for rent but that another .. family was going to look at it first. After the first family decided they didn't need such a large house, the Porters were told to come out and look at it. On the way out Mrs. Porter advised her m1sband that she had just come from Jacksonville and had no de sire to live near there while he worked in Tampa, so he could just turn around and not go any further. But it seems that Mr. Porter had promised to meet the man showing him the house at the filling station and he meant to keep his prom i se. So, in spite of protests, they came, they looked and n aturally were conquered by all the advantages of Temple Terrace. As a result, in August .of 1947, they moved in and since that time have become so captivated with Temple Terrace they are planning on buying or building a home here. They need a big home because there are Frank and Mildred and two growing boys. Frank :Jr. is 12 and is in the 7th grade at Franklin Junior High; Bill is 9 and in the 3rd'grade at Temple Terrace School. A dog, Duke, "is their. pet but if anyone knows where Bill can get a horse 1 ike Trigger; the information will be much appreciated, Born and raised in Sumter, South Carolina, Frank and Mildred have known each other all their lives. They were married in 1934 in Sumter. While he was with the Pont"iac oo. Frank was transferred about quite a 'bit and they have lived in Char. lotte and Asheville, North Carolina and Greenville, Wilson and Sumter, s. C. They also lived in Atlanta for awhile and lived in Jacksonville for 4 years before coming to Temple Terrace. Mr. Porter is Division Manager for McKesson-Robbins Company and likes his work very much. He enjoys playing golf but doesn't like fishing. He is Vice-Pres. of the Civic Association and a member of the Building Committee which is in charge of the Recreation Building. He is also an active member of the Community Church and on tl':e Church Board of. Directors. Mildred has no special hobby except 'that she does enjoy resting. And as Frank put it, 11 especially resting in bed 11 She does find time for Garden Club activities and can always be counted on to help in any Civic ente.i:prise. .. .,,, *********************** ******************** ***********"'** ********

..... ; (Register and Vote continued) The City doe s..riot: have enough income without the tax to maintain the streets. As the figures show, it is always spending more than the street assessment will bring in. But the assessment does hel:p .... a:nd because the prope.rty which benefi ta from the streets pays a a .mall amount, everyone benefits. Actually, of course, it is the resident living he re and enjoying the fine streets who will receive more from his tax than the vacant lot owner; but in turn, the man owning the vacant property would never be able to sell the prop erty if the streets were poor. Everyone is. familiar with .the streets of Tampa and how rough they are. We are fortunate in that our streets do not have the beavy flow of traffic and if we maintain them properly we will continue to have streets which are good and free from bumps, holes, grass and trash. Remember always that the money each person has invested in his or her home is to a great deal protected by the way the City of Temple Terrace progresses. If the water system goes bad your investment will be affected, if the golf course should go bad your investment will be affected, if the Recreation Building and swimming pool shouid_go bad your investment ,,will .be. affect ed; so naturally, if the streets go bad your investment will be affected. We urge you to protect your investment. Consider all the advantages you receive and the small amount the tax will cost you. Then be sure to register by March 2nd; and vote on Mar. g. If there is any question concerning the tax, the editors will be more than glad to explain more of its advantages. Remember that it does benefit each resident. COMMISSIONERS MEETING Business disposed of at the Mid-Monthly meeting of the Board of City Commissioners included a motion by Comm Kn6pke, seconded by Comm. Howell and adopted by unanimous vote, that City Attorney be instructed to review the City Charter for the purpose of determining proper procedure, and to prepare bill or petition, if necessary, to have Legislature pass legislation revising City Charter whereby authority would be. created to change date of bi-annual City Election to a date in the month of August. The Commissioners also decided to call a Special Meeting for the night of March 2nd, in order that official list of registered freeholders can be presented and officials selected for the Referendum to be held March g, Other matters brought under discussion were: a permanent reg istration list of voters; letter from the Attorney General, setting forth legal requirements for voting; the wording of ballots for the forthcoming election; and program planned by City Judge and City Attorney in setting up the Municipal Court. Have you noticed a marked improvement in your telephone service recently? In the past we have received several complaints by the residents of our City ae to the poor telephone service. The matter was taken up with officials of the Peninsular Telephone Com pany, at which time they assuxed us that our over-crowded condition would be corrected. The Telephone Company has recently installed two additional trunk lines to Temple Terrace-----for which we are very grateful The great optimist is the business man who marries his steno grapher thinking he can continue to dictate to her
