Box 19, Fort S Myers, Fla., 3,1902. In a recent issue of your paper titer was an article stating that Miss Helen Kane,- the former "Boop Boop a Doop" girl, was residing in Fort Myers for several years. Will you please verify that statement to settle an argument between us? C. McF. and M. S., Lehigh Acres. The original "Betty Boop" girl, Ann Rothschild, lives here. Miss Kane was a later version. I would like some information about the new type ef mobile home parks that are springing up in Lee County, the kind which have a central sewage system, club house and recreation center etc. They have a monthly charge which covers sewage, trash removal, water and use of the recreation center, if the lot is purchased. Rental lots include such charges in the rent. After the last lot has been sold or rented, is there any authority in the county which supervises or regulates such park management to prevent arbitrary raises in service charges or are they free to charge exhorbitant prices? Does the mobile home owner have any recourse in such a situation? If there is any such board, may I please have the name and address? Mrs. 0, S, H.. Fort Myers. In rental parks there is no such control but legislation is being considered In the current session to change that. In the parks where the people are buying the lots, there is a condominium association, which normally takes over when the park is sold out. The association of owners may elect to maintain their own systems or contract the work out, often to the developer who built the park. Could you tell me why they will not let people from up north who come down for six months have TV cable? So many would like to have it for six months. They are willing to pay for installation, the same as others who have it for year round. L. A. B., Bonita Springs. South Florida Cablevision said they aren't interested in anything under a year's contract. "It's simply that that's our policy," they said. 'f Li. KEEPING SAIGON SECURE - Two sol- cently.
