pak lying on the pavement in the middle of
14th Avenue.

The third, and probably the most trou-
bling thing these records seem to point to
is that Vero police did not take advantage of
available help from the Sherriff’s office in the
hours after the shooting.

Sheriff’s Office deputies were only asked
to “monitor Vero channels” on the radio
to help look for the Honda Accord and the
suspect, and they were told at 1:57 a.m. that
“the scene is secure at The Grove.”

There’s no clear indication that Vero – a
department which would have had a maxi-
mum of six patrol officers on duty at 2 a.m.
on a Saturday morning before detectives
were called in – requested Sheriff’s deputies
to help establish a perimeter around the
shooting scene, or to make sure no one left
the area before those present could be ruled
out as suspects.

Five of the seven Sheriff’s Office units
available to assist were “cleared” from the
call at 2:27 a.m., even though, with all the
confusion and conflicting reports, there is
no possibility that everyone on scene could
have been interviewed and cleared as sus-
pects only 34 minutes after the first Vero
police officer arrived on scene. It wasn’t
until just before 3 a.m. that Sheriff’s Depu-
ties found a black Honda Accord one with
the bumper off, matching the description
provided by witnesses at the scene. They se-
cured the vehicle until a Vero detective could
make it out to the scene at 3:54 a.m.

But more than two months after the
crime, which left Capak critically wounded
in the hospital during the week he was sup-
posed to be married, the Vero Beach Police
Department hasn’t made an arrest and has
been reluctant to provide any details about
the progress of the investigation.

No sketch or physical description of the
shooter has been put out to the public for
help, and police won’t comment on the
black Honda or whether either of the two
men said to be the shooter on the 911 calls
are actually suspects.

Police Chief David Currey said last month
that detectives had recently gone back and
interviewed all the witnesses from the scene
again; two weeks ago, Capt. Kevin Martin
would only say on the record that detectives
are “waiting for information to come back.”

Police also won’t comment on the record
about a burner cell phone found at the scene
rumored to be in evidence. 

Riomar, The Moorings, Orchid Island, Bent

The agreements were abruptly discontin-

That same viewer felt that while the

shorts category had lots of stars, the dra-
matic features selection wasn’t as strong
as last year’s. Of them, “Mousse” got a
strong recommendation – he called it
“hysterical.” Another “beautifully done”
feature film is “June Falling Down,” with
a director another source called “very up-
and-coming”: Rebecca Weaver. She also
wrote and edited the film, about a young
woman going back home to a wedding in
small-town Wisconsin after the death of
her father. Weaver stars in it, too.

“Love and Hostages” got a positive men-

“D-Love” got tagged as clever.

Lest we forget that the festival cele-
brates not only the art of film-making, but
wine-making, the feature length docu-

ising addition to the festivities this year.

Earlier that day, if your olfactory nerves
need a warm-up for all those noses, you
can expand your range with a perfume
bar that accompanies a screening of “Per-
fume Wars,” a documentary about entre-
preneur – and now screenwriter – Barba-
ra Stegermann, who launches a company
that buys rose essence for perfumes, con-
vincing Afghani farmers to switch from
growing poppies for heroin. That party,
hosted by “La La Land” producer Molly
Smith and producer/publicist Ngoc Nyu-
gen, starts at noon Saturday.

As for people-watching, the buzz is
clearly about Burt Reynolds, who’ll be
here Friday night to accept the festival’s
Life Worth Living Legend Award. He’ll also
be here for the Florida premiere of his
new film, “Dog Years.” The screening takes
place at Riverside Theatre after a panel
discussion that includes Reynolds, “Dog
Years” director Adam Rifkin and producer
Neil Mandt. 

For starters on this visit, we ordered the
ceviche mixto ($14.90), a beautiful array of
fish, scallops, calamari, octopus, shrimp,
Peruvian pepper and red onions marinated
in a classic leche de tigre with choclo (giant
kernels of Peruvian corn). Leche de tigre, or
tiger’s milk, is the citrus based marinade that

medium spicy and it was excellent.

Then we decided to try two “causas” – cau-
sa de pulpo ($14.50) and causa de camaron
($17.50). Peruvian causas consist of seafood
and other ingredients atop of one of the coun-
try’s 3,000 varieties of potato mixed with key
lime, onion, chili and oil.

At Pico Alto, both causas were served atop
delicious Peruvian yellow potatoes. The
causa de camaron featured shrimp, and the
causa de pulpo featured octopus seared in
Peruvian black olive sauce. Unfortunately,
the sauce on top – while good – was identical
on both causas. You probably don’t want to
order two of these causas at the same sitting.

The three of us then sampled five entrées:
the parihuela ($15.50), quinoa chaufa vege-
tariano ($14.90), chaufa de mariscos ($17.00),
picante de mariscos ($16.50) and lomo salta-
do ($17.50).

The parihuela is a hearty and spicy sea-
food soup – Peru’s answer to bouillabaisse.
This one was chock full of clams, mussels,
calamari, pulpo and shrimp, in a light flavor-
ful broth. Very good.

Chaufa is a dish normally made with rice

to Peru by Chinese immigrants – featuring
meat or seafood. The chaufa de mariscos was

learning stays young. The greatest thing you can do is keep your mind young.”
Last week, I mentioned the rule of 20, which some players, whatever their age, use to
decide between an initial pass and a one-level opening bid. As I explained, I believe that WEST EAST
that is a bad idea. However, if you have a long suit, it is a useful guideline for deciding Q J 10 9
whether to open one or to pre-empt. A A8532
Look at this week’s South hand. What would you open, and how would your auction 8752 7
proceed? Assuming South ends in four hearts, how should he plan the play after the
defenders take two spade tricks, then shift to diamonds? K Q 10

For the rule of 20, you add high-card points to the number of cards in your two longest 10 9 6 3
suits. So, this week’s South hand is worth 20 (11 plus 9). It should be opened one
heart, not three hearts. North should respond two no-trump, the Jacoby Forcing Raise, SOUTH
and South should jump to four hearts to indicate a minimum opening with no side-suit
singleton or void. (If South did open three hearts, probably North would raise to four, more 74
in hope than expectation, but that is beside the point!)

South is faced with four losers: two spades, one heart and one diamond. If he immediately
starts on trumps, he should lose those tricks. As I am confident you noticed, declarer must 85
