Abstract (Document Summary)

- Fun in the sun vs. made in the shade: The New Republican miniconvention in Curacao turned out to be just too darn mini for undersheriff Jim Dvorak, who wants more than almost anything to be GOP county chairman. That's why late Friday he canceled his plane tickets, unpacked his Speedo and set up his beach umbrella closer to home, where the Republicans who decide such things as who will be county chairman are totten, er, totin' up their votes.

- The Show Must Go On: Tom Dreesen's Channel 7 local late night show premiered Monday with slightly less glitz than originally planned when Dean Martin's sudden hospitalization forced the cancellation of Dreesen's Triple Threat first-night 1-2-3 combo of Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra. Martin, who reportedly had been under the weather during the group's three-day engagement here, was flown to Los Angeles early Monday and hospitalized for a flareup of a recurring kidney problem.

- Since last fall, Pam Dawber's "My Sister Sam" CBS-TV series has been off, on, moved, abused, hiatus-ed and now, courtesy of the writers' strike and a deluge of mail from fans, resurrected (8:30 p.m., Channel 2). It's part of the network's new Tuesday "comedy night," and ratings over the next week or two will determine if the show returns in the fall. Meanwhile, Dawber and Mark Harmon are preparing for the birth of their son, due next month, with private Lamaze classes. Wise idea; hard to imagine a roomful of very pregnant women trying to do controlled breathing in the presence of Mark Harmon.
