Joe Mutter

“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

Into this landscape we meet Lombardi through the
eyes of Look magazine reporter Michael McCormick,
who has traveled from New York to Green Bay to stay
at the coach’s home for an up-close-and-personal
interview.
Greg Fallick forges an earnest likability for the
reporter, a young man struggling with his own father
issues, who finds himself confronting a larger than life
man in Lombardi.
Denise Cormier brings to life Marie Lombardi, an
attractive woman as adept at mixing a highball as she
is advising her husband … and the reporter.
But the show belongs to Richard Zavaglia, who
carves out a rich portrayal of Lombardi. His mix is a
complicated one – filled with gruffness and love, con-
fidence and vulnerability. His Lombardi nearly aches
with affection for his players, yet all the while he is a
split-second away from lecturing them. Even when he
yells “Shut up, Marie,” you have to laugh because you
feel the tenderness between the two.

honor the Super Bowl’s Vincent Lombardi Trophy is
awarded each year. The award processional includes

Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric and a bridge player, said, J52
“Number one, cash is king ... number two, communicate ... number three, buy or bury the
competition.” J9632

At the bridge table, number one, make or break the contract ... number two, WEST EAST
communicate with your partner ... number three, bury the opposition. 9652

This week’s deal has elements of that, but also three and one are relevant — why? 3
South is in three notrump. West leads his fourth-highest heart, and East puts up the A74 K 10 7 6
king. What should declarer do?
Q87
South’s three-notrump rebid shows some 18-20 high-card points, at least six diamonds,
in principle stoppers in the two unbid suits and often a singleton in responder’s suit. (It K5
is a hand too strong for one diamond - one spade - three diamonds.)
SOUTH
South apparently starts with eight top tricks: four spades, two hearts (given trick one)
and two diamonds. He can also establish three or four more diamond winners. But to A
collect all of those spade tricks, how does declarer get into the dummy?
AQ2
The temptation is to cash the top diamonds and assume that the queen will drop, which
it is supposed to do 58 percent of the time. Note, though, that if declarer can win six A K 10 9 6 4
diamond tricks, he has nine tricks via one spade, two hearts and six diamonds. But just
in case the diamond queen will not drop, South should be willing to sacrifice one trick to Q 10 8
get the three spade winners in return.
Dealer: South; Vulnerable: Neither
After winning trick one and cashing the spade ace, declarer should lead his diamond 10
or nine. If East ducks, South has six diamond tricks. If East wins, the diamond jack is a The Bidding:
