^ - Wed., July 3. 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Majority in favor Annexation proceeds, protests over-ruled The City Council last night en tered the final phase of annexing about 100 acres along Brookside avenue after eleventh hour protests by several property o«ii- ers were ruled insufficient to de- iep.t the annexation. Ordinances approving the an nexation of property west of Lakeside to Terracina boulevard were introduced and will be presented for adoption in tvro weeks. The Council also introduced an ordin ance establishing commercial and residential zoning for the area. LIEUTENANT COMMANDER M. E. DUNCAN USNR Redlands officer commands Reserve unit A Redlands Naval officer was among the five to take command of different units of the. Naval Reserve program recently in San Bernardino. Lieutenant Commander M. E. Duncan has assumed command of Naval Reserve Surface Division 11-33 relieving Lieutenant Commander R. R. White of Riverside. The change of command ceremonies took place in the Naval Reserve Training Center at Fourth and Waterman in San Bernardino. The ceremony was followed by a dinner party for the officers and their wives. The changes of command are part of the normal annual reassignments within the Naval Reserve program. Appointments were made by Rear Admiral A. E. Loomis, commandant of the Eleventh Naval District, San Diego. . LCDR Duncan Is employed by Space Technology Labs at Norton Base. He and Mrs. Duncan and their four children live at 133 Anita court. The Council went ahead with the annexation proceedings after City Clerk Hazel Soper announced that the protests did not amount to more than 50 percent of the total assessed valuation of the area. Redlands Realtor Dale Robinson represented the property owners requesting annexation to the city. Two Parts The area is actually being brought in as two separate an- ne.xations so that the procedures for "uninhabited annexations" could be followed. Dividing of the annexation area also divided the opposition. Four property owTiers protested during (he public hearing last night. Three were in the east half of the total anne.vation and one was in the west half. Robert Scholton, who owns 12 acres of citrus property bounded by Magnolia, Bellevue and Lakeside, told the Council that he didn't know why his property had been included in the annexation. "It looks like a case of divide and conquer,!' Scholton asserted. if this were brought to an election it would never pass." Higdon Protests Terry Higdon, owner of five stores along Brookside avenue just outside the existing city limits, also was opposed to annexation. He said he also represented his mother who owns two other stores and an adjoining vacant lot. Higdon maintained that the proposed zoning would limit development of the area and the taxes would be increased disproportionately to benefits. Other protests were heard from Mr. and Mrs. Peter I)ykstra who operate a five-acre chicken ranch between Magnolia and Brookside and from Mrs. Gretchen W. Ellis of Glendale who owns 10 acres within the annexation. Mayor Charles C. Parker stated that the opponents did not appear to represent a majority ownership of the total assessed valuation of either annexation and asked for an official report from the city clerk. Mrs. Soper announced that Annexation District 15, the easteriy portion, had an assessed valuation of $387,082 and that owners ol property totaling $290,090 assessed valuation had signed the petition favoring annexation. In regard to Annexation District 16, the westerly portion, the city clerk reported that the total assessed valuation was $754,090 and property owners representing ?511,010 favored the annexation. Other Items On other matters last night the Council took the following actions: —Awarded a bid for six "dump- sters" to the West Coast Machine company of Burbank which submitted a $10,008 estimate. The "dumpsters" will be used by the city Disposal department. —Adopled an ordinance regulating size and height of signs in residential districts and establishing new parking space requirements in residential districts. —Approved a request by the Downto\\'n Redlands Association for closing East State street between Orange and Seventh street on July 11 in conjunction with a 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. sidewalk sale. —Adopted an ordinance establishing fire zones and altering the north and south boundaries of Fire Zone One which includes the downtown area. Fire Zone Two includes all commercial districts outside Fire Zone One. Fire Zone Three is the residential areas. Co/. Hall transferred from Norton to Germany Col. Richard G.

RIVERSIDE OV 3-7900 Auto club points to safety record of California California's motorists are more careful than they are credited with being, and its freeways are safer than its surface roadways, the Automobile Club of Southern California's Public Safety Department said today in a July 4th holiday safety announcement. "Although the state accounts for 10 per cent of the nation's traffic accidents, it has 11 per cent of the country's drivers and vehicles," Robert J. Cheney, manager of the department, said. "When you con sider this, it means drivers in California are more skilled than m many other states. If they weren't accident statistics would read higher. "It's about time that the drivers in tills ^tate get a pat on the back. All they ever hear is news of traffic fatalities. They never hear about the millions of poeple who drive everj-day without an accident. Safe driving never makes the headlmes. "We need to reserve the negative approach that has been so popular in recent years. We have to develop a positive altitude toward driving, particularly on free-' ways. "Freeways are safer than surface roadways, and statistics prove that they are. For example, Los Angeles County had 3.629,301 registered vehicles as of last year. And during those 12 months there were 280 days when there were no freeway fatalities. "Last July 4th there were three traffic fatalities in Los Angeles County, none of which occurred on a freeway. On last Labor Day there were four traffic fataUties only one of which occurred on a freeway." Real estate activity and department store sales were the major source of strength as Southern California's economy moved to a record level in June, Security First National Bank's research department reported today. On a year-to-year comparison, the Southland's overall business activity currently is running seven per cent higher than a year ago. In recording a new high, the bulk of real estate sales centered in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area. The number of deeds filed in the area totaled 46.127 for the May-June period. The compara live figure for a year ago was 43,203. Department store sales also set a new peak climbing to an estimated 132 on the bank's business indax from the 1957-59 average of 100. As of the week ending June 21, Security's business index was reported at 133.4 (preliminary), as compared to 133.1 for May. Homebuilding activity in the Southland area during the first half of 1963 has been well above the record levels which characterized the latter part of last year. Based on permits issued to dale, the present annual rate of homebuilding stands at approximately 200,500. This compares with actual totals of 167,104 dwelling units in 1962; 142,026 in 1961; and 130,328 in 1960. Total civilian employment con tinned to rise for the fourth straight month. Employment in Southern California m^ropolitan areas totaled 3,854,000 during May, the latest month available. This represented an increase of about 118,000 jobs, or a gain of 3.1 per cent over a year ago. The unemployment rale, sea^ sonally adjusted, was sLx per cent in May. In the Los Angeles-Long Beach area. May's unemployment rate was 5.7 per cent. Mailmen happy; dogs tied Dog shy Redlands mailmen are afraid the city may relax enforcement of the dog leash law. The letter carriers are enjoy ing a happy respite from barfc ing, biting, snipping dogs and they claim mail delivery is the bet ter for it. Postmaster Daniel J. Stanton last night petitioned the City Coun cil to maintam strict leash law enforcement. He wrote the Coun cil that some mailmen had been told by people on their delivery routes that enforcement was to be relaxed. He added, "Prior to enforce ment, I found it necessary to dis continue mail delivery to certain homes and in some cases to certain sections of streets. Since strict enforcement became effective, I have not had a single case where delivery has had to be discontinued." The Postmaster asked to be informed if the Council does consider relaxmg enforcement. City Manager Fred Workman reminded the Council that the leash law enforcement was tight ened last November as a rabies control measure by order of the State Department of Health. "The city has no choice in the matter," he said, "and it appears the rabies quarantine will not be lifted ui the near future." John Bevis reports School district assessed valuation up $348 million The assessed valuation of property within the Redlands Unified school district rose by $3.48 million this year, it was reported today by County Assessor John Bevis. Most of this increase is derived from the assessed valuation of new construction within the city of Redlands itself, according to the assessor's compilations. The Redlands Unified school district area is somewhat larger than the city since it takes in some territory to the west of the city limits plus all of the Crafton and Mentone districts east of the city. Just what effect this increase will have on the school financial picture is still some\\-faat uncertain beacuase of the complexities of state aid formulas. School officials did indicate, however, that the prelunmaiy budget was computed on the basis of an anticipated 5 per cent increase in assessed valuation. The actual increase amounts to a helpful 7.18 per cent. The total assessed valuation cf the Redlands Unified district was listed by Mr. Bevis as $48,473,029. Of this amount, all but S10,I&1,540 is within the city limits. Strangely enough, one parcel of unsecured property within the Redlands city limits in taxed for the benefit of the San Bernardino city school system. This is the Tri-City Transit MLx Concrete corporation on Alabama street in the Santa Ana wash. Since it operates on leased land, its property is listed on the unsecured roll. But the figure is $71,071 which would bring in about $2,000 annually if it were applied to the Redlands school district. The county schools office said the San Bernardino city school district line jogs south of Third street between Tennessee, extended, and .Alabama street to take in the Tri-City plant. Just when this happened is uncertain but was done more than fiVe years ago, at least. In areas around Redlands, there were also healthy increases in assessed valuation with Yucaipa jumping almost as much as Red- Example for others HOOKS TROMBONIST raiTBY, England (UPI) — British pop singer Frankie Vaughan went fishing Tuesday and caught a trombone player- fellow fisherman Alec Mclnnes, who was pulled out by Vaughan after he fell into the River Esk.

Colten and Orange 792-1044 $500 donation toward Prospect Park purchase An anonymous $500 contribution towTd the purchase of Prospect Park was revealed by Mayor Charles C.Parker last night who said he hoped other citizens would follow the giver's example. The mayor disclosed that he had received a $500 check in the mail with a letter from the donor, who asked to remain anonymous. The check has been turned over to the city Treasurer's Office and a special Prospect Park fund created. "This might well be the beginning of a park development fund in the event the bond election is successful," the mayor noted. A $560,000 park bond issue election Jias been scheduled for October 22. The bonds would be used to purchase the 35-acre Prospect Park property so that the city can preser\'e it as a municipal park. Mayor Parker read the letter which said in part: 'While much of Southern California loses its beauty as trees are uprooted to die, Redlands, at least, should try to preserve some of its charm as a residential cit>-. "It should be perfectly possible for the city to get the park if a group of its citizens of today will provide the kind of leadership given by those early citizens whose accwnplishments we are honoring in this 75th year. "I believe there would be many Redlanders, present and past, who would, if given the chance, con tribute to a fund either toward purchasing the park or establishing an endowTnent fund for its maintenance." lands. Excluding the Riverside county portion of the district which is not yet known, Yucaipa will have an increase of $3,024,210 this year, the bulk of it in secured property. The total Yucaipa assessment figure, again without Riverside county's portion, is $20,820,980 of which only $710,500 is unsecured property. The Riverside county portion added $2.39 million to the secured total a year ago and is expected to increase some again this year. In the Mission district west of Redlands. the increase will be S395,890 for a total of $10,161,710. The secured roll amounts to $9,843,570 of the total. The Fallsvale elementary district will receive an increase of S154,600. Its total assessed valuation is $925,140. It should be noted that all assessment figures available at this time irom the county assessor's office do not include the assessment on public utilities. Utilities are assessed separately by the State Board of EquaHzation and the figures generally do not become available until August.
