$200 of items.

Police are seeking the public’s help
identifying the woman, who they say
stole items between 11 a.m. and 11:30
a.m. on Saturday, June 9. Police didn’t put
out a notice about the incident until late
last week.

According to police, surveillance foot-
age captured the accused shoplifter,
who is described as a white female with
blonde hair. Her hair was up in a ponytail
under a baseball cap. She was wearing a
white, short T-shirt, jean shorts and black
slide shoes.

Images captured showed she was car-
rying a large black handbag and has mul-
tiple tattoos.

Police say the woman entered the
store shortly after 11 a.m. and selected
two swimsuits, a watch, various cloth-
ing items, and a bottle of CK Cologne.
She took the items into the fitting room
area. After leaving the fitting room area,
according to police, she discarded the
empty packages in a fitting rack and then
left the store without paying for any of
the items.

In all, $210.28 worth of merchandise
was stolen, police said.

Anyone with information that could
help identify the suspect is encouraged

COMMUNICATE THE DEFENSIVE COUNT WEST NORTH EAST
832 QJ7 10 9 6 4
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist A9754 83 K62
63 A 10 9 8 2 K75
Marcel Marceau, a French mime expert, said, “To communicate through silence is a link Q 10 8 A54 J97
between the thoughts of man.”
SOUTH
That certainly applies to bridge players, who must communicate with their partners, both AK5
during the auction and on defense, without using any explanatory words. However, even Q J 10
with good communication, the information available must be processed and applied QJ4
correctly. K632

In this weeks deal, for example, South is in three no-trump. What should happen after Dealer: South; Vulnerable: Neither
West leads his fourth-highest heart?
The Bidding:
Declarer starts with six top tricks: three spades, one diamond and two clubs. He will get
a heart trick and can gain three or four more winners from the diamond suit. But if that SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
finesse is losing, he could concede one diamond and four hearts to go down one. 1 NT Pass 3NT All Pass
LEAD:
East wins the first trick with the heart king, under which South drops the jack, let’s say. 5 Hearts
East returns the heart six, and declarer smoothly plays his queen. At this point, West will
be tempted to take the trick, hoping that South started with only two hearts. But if West
does win with his ace and return a heart, declarer takes the trick, runs the diamond
queen and comes home with an overtrick.

If East had started with K-10-6-2 of hearts, he would have led back the two: low from three
remaining cards. When he actually played the six (high from an extant doubleton), West
should realize that he must duck this trick to keep communication with his partner. Then,
when East gets in with the diamond king, he leads his third heart, and the contract fails.
