1 Can it possibly be 50 years
since the Beatles’ “Sgt.
Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club
Band?” Really? Must be, because
the Black Jacket Symphony is
celebrating the album’s Gold-
en Anniversary with a “full, live
re-creation” at the Kravis in West
Palm this Sunday. According to
their website, the Black Jacket
Symphony recreates a select-
ed classic album note-for-note
“in its entirety” and in every
detail, with musicians chosen
to do whatever it takes for each
particular album. For Sunday’s
performance, the Black Jacket
Symphony will include the Flor-
ida Rock Orchestra, a full video
wall, lighting and state-of-the-
art graphics, plus a full set of the
Beatles’ greatest hits, to give you
“a full rock concert experience.”
Show time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets
start at $15. 561-832-7469.

this weekend at Terra
Fermata, the popular outdoor
concert spot in downtown Stu-
art? This Friday it’s Quick Fix,

BLUE ANGELS INSPIRE OOHS AND AWE AT AIR SHOW
All eyes were on the sky at the Vero Beach Air Show last weekend, which featured the famous Blue Angels, above, and Skytypers. PHOTOS: GORDON RADFORD BY STEPHANIE LaBAFF | Staff Writer
All eyes were turned to the sky last
weekend as planes zoomed overhead
and pilots performed death-defying ma-
neuvers during the Vero Beach Air Show.
The Blue Angels were right at home at
the Vero Beach Regional Airport, which
served as a Naval Air Station during World
War II. Their much-anticipated return
thrilled the crowds as flight teams dis-
played their iconic diamond formation
while reaching air speeds of up to 750 mph.
No matter the age, fans watched the ballet
in the sky with wide-eyed wonderment.
Blue Angels slot pilot Lt. Cmdr. Nate
Scott, a fourth-generation military ser-
viceman, explained that their mission is to
inspire a culture of excellence and service
to country through flight
“We can’t take people
onboard aircraft carriers
and show them what
we do on a day to day
basis. How we do that is
through air shows like
this. Not to just inspire
people to join the mili-
tary, but also to inspire
them to think about
things greater than
themselves. Think about
excellence and what that means, and to in-
spire that culture of excellence in whatever
they do,” said Scott.
Other thrilling performers included the
F16 Viper Demonstration Team, GEICO
Skytypers, the Screamin’ Sasquatch, a jet
truck, aerobatics and skydiving demonstra-
And on the ground, there was a Family
Fun Zone, plenty of food and static displays
of a variety of military and civilian aircraft,
including the Tinker Belle, a 1945 C-46

PREVIOUS MATERIAL UPDATED, IMPROVED KJ6
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist 85
Mike Lawrence wrote many excellent books quite some time ago. He has revamped KJ7
them, and the latest is “Tips on Cardplay” (Master Point Press). In 300 pages, you get a
vast amount of sound advice about declarer-play and defense, with approximately twice QJ854
as much space on defense — which is as it ought to be because you are a defender
twice as often as you are the declarer. WEST EAST
How should West defend in this deal? Against four spades, he leads his singleton heart. 2 3
East wins with the ace and returns the heart queen, South playing the four and 10. 8532
What should West discard? 10 9 7 6 3 AQJ9763
North’s two-heart cue-bid showed spade support and at least game-invitational values. AQ96
What is going on? If East began with the heart ace-king-queen, he should have won the 2
first trick with the queen, not the ace. If East started with the heart ace-queen-jack, that
is consistent with his play, but then why did South not try to win the second trick with SOUTH
his heart king?
A Q 10 9 7 5
PHOTOS: MITCH KLOORFAIN
K 10 4
Declarer knows from the bidding and the heart-deuce lead that West started with a
singleton, and South does not want West on lead. 10 4
If West trusts everyone, he should “discard” a trump at trick two(!) and shift to a AK
diamond. Here, that produces the first four tricks for the defense — the only way given
the heart lead. Dealer: East; Vulnerable: North-South
Yes, South made a clever play, but East should have led the heart nine at trick two. The Bidding:
Since South surely has the club ace, East could anticipate this being the only winning
defense. When you want partner to ruff, lead a loser that declarer must cover. SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
