Frank Howard TV Cable, Inc. celebrates more than 57 years of business:
In a proud statement issued from their company headquarters, Frank Howard TV Cable announced that 2015 is the 57th anniversary of the founding of their business.
The company was started in 1958, the same year that a gallon of milk cost $1.01, a gallon of gas cost $0.24 and Americans' annual income reached $4,650.00. Since 1958, Americans have purchased a whole lot of T.V. sets. Recently, the United States was found to have two thirds of the world's T.V. sets - 47 million. Television was at its best with Gunsmoke, Father Knows Best, The Jack Benny Show, and Dinah Shore.
What else happened in 1958?
Lots of great things... Corningware dishes were introduced, along with stereo record. Thanks to France, the disposable Bic pen was introduced, and to pay for all of these new goods, the American Express Company introduced the first credit card.
Elvis Presley was inducted in to the United States Army that year, and became known simply as US53310761.
Edson Arantes de Nascimento (otherwise known as Pele) scored two goals and led Brazil to a victory at the 1958 World Cup. In Football, the Colts beat the Giants 23-17 in overtime for the NFL title. At the Rose Bowl, Ohio State took the win over the University of Oregon 10-7. THe Hawks also defeated the Celtics, 4 games to 2 for the NBA title.
The big screen could still hold an audience with movies like Auntie Mame, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, and The Last Hurrah.
In music, there was something for everyone: A Certain Smile, The Purple People Eater, Catch A Falling Star, and Great Balls of Fire. The music industry would also never be the same after these births: Prince, Andy Gibb, Michael Jackson, and Madonna were all born in 1958.
Yes, when you think about it, things have changed a lot in 57 years, but after all of this time, there are some things that have remained constant. Frank Howard TV Cable, Inc. has prospered in those 57 years and continues to be a strong and growing company. From a local, small town cable TV provider, we have grown to provide today's modern broadband internet services, telephone services, digital TV services, and with smiling friendly faces.

Our company commitment is to you, our customers and our community. Without your continued support and patronage, we wouldn't be the strong company that we are today.
