“I can buy Starkey anywhere but I can’t get
this kind of service anywhere else!”

Dear Joe,
Just a little note with a BIG thank you for the service you have provided for

me over the past twelve years on my hearing aids. I realize that anyone can sell the
instruments but, few follow up on the service that is necessary.

As a former business education teacher I always told my class that a successful
business could always be traced to providing a good product and more importantly
prompt and efficient service after the sale. Your business not only meets but goes
further on both criteria and I feel fortunate to be one of your satisfied customers.

So thank you again from a 93 year old, World War II Navy Combat Veteran.
Sincerely, Russell Stetser

CLOSURE OF
PRESERVE

What started out as a 90-acre
wildfire in the Bluefield Pre-
serve quickly became a 205-acre
blaze that forced the preserve’s
closure until further notice.

As of Tuesday, the preserve
was still closed to the public
and firefighters were continuing
to monitor the area for flare
ups. Bluefield Preserve is locat-
ed in western St. Lucie County.

“It’s still smoking pretty
good,” Florida Forestry Service
spokeswoman Melissa Yunas
said, noting there are plenty of
hot spots to watch.

Lightning caused the fire last
Saturday, April 28, which is 100
percent contained, according
to Yunas. However, she said fire
crews are concerned about high
winds stirring up hot embers
and transporting them beyond
the containment line. There
have been no injuries due to the
fire and nothing was threat-
ened. 

BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer

1 Does heavy metal get your
heart pounding? Do you
still have that Led Zep T-shirt?
Read on: this Saturday, May 5, the
Lyric Theatre in Stuart offers fans
a “new musical and visual inter-
pretation of the Led Zeppelin Ex-
perience,” as In The Light of Led
Zeppelin presents “The Page and
Plant No Quarter Tour II,” a trib-
ute to the 1970s English rock band
(originally known as the New
Yardbirds) widely considered one
of the progenitors of heavy met-
al. The Lyric promo calls the show
“a genre-bending, chance-tak-
ing project,” performed with the
same detail and authentic instru-
mentation as when Jimmy Page
and Robert Plant first did it. This
time they go further into the “Mid-
dle Eastern and classical influ-
ences that permeated ‘Kashmir,’”
from which flow new sounds with
hard-rock Led Zeppelin classics
and new “acoustic masterpieces.”
Show time is 8 p.m. Tickets are
$35. 772-286-7827.

A BOOK TO HELP BIDDING JUDGMENT K3

By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist 10 4

Neil Kimelman’s book “The Right Bid at the Right Time” (Master Point Press) contains AJ98732
more than 80 tough bidding problems, both constructive and competitive. After the
reader decides what he would do, Kimelman analyzes the pros and cons of each WEST A6
possible call, sometimes gives the original full deal and has “lessons to learn.” In A 10 9 2 EAST
general, the advice is sound, but a few times he makes debatable recommendations. 53
10 Q854
I found one deal where he said that a penalty double of three spades led to minus 730. KQ7542
He did not describe the play, though, because declarer had a two-way guess for the AJ9762
club jack that he must have gotten right. If either defender had held the club 10, they
would have been plus 200 for a nice score. (To be honest, the setting was a team game, Q6
not a pair event, when a close double into game should be avoided.)
9
In this week’s deal, taken from a team event, what should North rebid over one no-
trump? SOUTH

While you are considering that, “Out of Hand, Out of Mind” by Bill Buttle (Master Point J76
Press) is a book containing 141 color cartoons with bridge themes, some funnier than
others, of course. KQ8

Back to the deal, North ought to rebid three diamonds (although three no-trump is K54
feasible). This says that North is trying to get to three no-trump, but would like South to
have some help in the suit and, preferably, hearts well held — as he does here. J 10 8 3

Finally, yes, I probably would have responded two no-trump, not one, with that suitable Dealer: North; Vulnerable: East-West
South hand, and hoped for the best in the black suits.
