Sun Coast Gondolier (Newspaper) - September 1, 1977, Venice, FloridaMemos from Murph smoke screen of words Sun coast gondolier Venice Florido thursday september 1, 1977 a 5 my files reveal that from the time a a memos first appeared in print the subject matter has never been both local and completely serious at the same time. That is because i have purposely shied away from using this column As a vehicle for editorializing. I leave that Job to those More capable. Even now before my typewriter veered in that direction whatever human chemistry handles the motivation controls experienced some Cross wire problems from the a do it and the a a done to do it switches. The a do it impulses began to flow evenly through the system from currents generated by news items appearing in recent issues of our journal. Some of the currents received a Booster charge from readers reactions to those items. Now that the a do it switch is turned on i can say that my subject for this a a memo is City Hall problems. From what i read it appears that the people we designated to legislate and guide the City for us Are faced with daily sessions and Midnight Homework to provide solutions which will keep the citizenry Happy a or most of them. Except for the Airport situation most of the puzzles Are the Normal products of a growing Community. It saddens me that this fact is outside the grasp of so Many Good citizens of Venice. Lets look at a sampling of the posers facing the Council. Why should the garbage collection ordinance create so much smoke As i have most of you resided in one or More other locations before picking out our Beautiful town on the Gulf for what is probably the last Stop. Have any of you Ever before enjoyed the luxury of having a Jitney rolling into your Carport or the rear of your Home to pick up refuse Haven to you Young and old alike always been required to get those containers to the curb How Many have had to Wade through Snow at Zero or sub Zero temperatures to get them there so what a the beef will refuse packed in Well secured neat appearing plastic bags at the curb for an hour or so each week create a ghetto like appearance i done to think so. When it comes to the new proposed zoning code i will by Mike Murphy admit that this one is a real Tough nut to crack. But again our City is in the process of having growing pains and it be permitted to grow like Topsy. Take a ride upstate West to Orlando then come Home and help our officials come up with a code that will Hurt the least number of people. I dislike being trite but there a that old one about not being Able to a please All of the people All of the a recent headline read a tax increase Likely. Have you Ever taken the time to attend a Council session when the members were working Over a submitted budget its a revelation. It is also living proof that the people past and present sitting at the big table have rolled up their sleeves and done their Homework. When comes to avoiding excessive taxes for us no matter what comes out in the end someone gets irked a be it taxpayer City employees or some group wishing to Plant tulips in Blalock Park. Lets get Back to this Airport thing a this one is a Biggie. During a recent election Campaign i had occasion to feel a pulse or two on this question and found irregular beats which were causing some nerve disorders. Previous administrations have been inclined to sweep the dust from this problem under the Rug. Our present Council had better Well read All the Fine print in the original Federal government deed Grant. In a going to shut off the a do it switch by repeating some personal philosophy which crept out in this Corner Many months ago our neighbors who through our ballots find themselves sitting on the dais in the Council Chambers Arentt there because of the salary they earn a its peanuts. Neither Are they there to acquire local prestige by getting their names in the papers for cutting a grand opening ribbons. For what its Worth i still firmly believe they wish to make a sincere contribution to the City of Venice. Otherwise they would be doing the same thing Many of us Are doing a playing eighteen holes. In a rapidly growing City All of us should make a positive Effort to help those people we elected to do the Best possible Job for the entire City while trying to put aside negative special interests. Hands off is Rule with Eye problems if you find yourself having problems with your eyes the Best advice available comes from the physicians of the Florida medical association who warn keep your hands away if a particle of dust or other foreign object lands in your Eye it will probably be washed away by the natural action of tears. Poking rubbing and pulling on the eyelids will Only aggravate the situation and May cause infection. Large particles which May cause Eye damage Call for prompt medical treatment. If the Eye becomes inflamed bloodshot and there is a scratchy sensation the problem May be what is commonly called a Pink it is not a serious infection if treated properly yet it is contagious and requires medical attention. When Eye drops Are called for there Are two simple ways to get the medication in without making a mess. Pulling slightly on the lower lid will form a pocket into which medication can easily be dropped. For squeamish children try having them put their Heads Back and close their eyes tightly. Drop the medication in the Corner of the Eye and then have them blink. Verman letter irks firemen the North port Community Volunteer fire department inc. Pc Mfd made the following response to a letter from commissioner a. Verman published in the August 17 Issue of the Sun coast times. The pc Mfd say that Vermanus letter degraded Many of North ports residents former residents and now deceased residents. Although Verman claims he wrote this letter because he a refuses to knuckle under and be dictated to by a handful of people a the Volunteer fire department questions whether he is using this As an excuse to evade the democratic principles upon which the United states of America was founded. In his letter commissioner Verman makes untrue charges against this City a residents say the pc Mfd members. A through a smoke screen of words the City tried to justify its acts but were unable to substantiate one charge against a Volunteer group which had faithfully served this City and its residents for some ten years a they say. The volunteers say that Verman states he has secured fire equipment to reduce the insurance rate from a class 10 to class 7, but neglects to mention that the recommendations for the proper equipment came from the former Volunteer fire department. The pc Mfd asks Why commissioner Veman has not prosecuted the department for misuse of City funds a crime he has charged them of. The reason is obvious the men say because it is not Ture and Verman knows that. If it was True he would be derelict in his duties if he did not prosecute the Volunteer fire department states. Verman charged the volunteers with removing equipment from the fire House according to his letter. The pc Mfd say the items removed were the corporation records personal property of individual firemen and items purchased by the ladies auxiliary. No City property was removed. In truth the volunteers say they left six Coats purchased by the women with their own funds so the new men would have enough protective Coats to Wear. This property is today still in the fire nouse declares the pc Mfd. In his letter Verman claimed the volunteers Are carrying out a a a vendetta against him. The volunteers say he is using this As an excuse to cover up the Many problems he has had in the past As Well As those of the present he is facing in the areas under his direct supervisor. Say the volunteers a look elsewhere commissioner Verman for the source of your problems a perhaps to yourself. A the volunteers remind the citizens that Only a few Points from the Verman article have been covered by them. The Many accusations made against the Volunteer department Are untrue and cannot be substantiated they add. The pc Mfd declares that it believes in a the american Way Quot and knows it is Only a matter of time before the True facts will become known.
