‘Special’ PGA pool home features sweeping views

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL | Columnist
[email protected]

Some houses, by the number of rooms
or their configuration, seem more suited to
a family. Others, even those that are not in
55+ communities, seem more for snowbirds
or retirees. The house at 8604 Tompson
Point Road in the Tompson Point section of
PGA Village is a “Goldilocks” house that is
just right for anyone. Located at the end of
a cul de sac, it’s an ideal place for kids. With
3 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, it is also ideal for
people who have lots of guests, including
grandkids, with plenty of room at home and
amenities galore in the community.

The house has tremendous curb appeal,
with a paver drive flanked by trees and lush
landscaping. The etched door has windows
above, adding interest and contributing to
the light, bright aspect of the interior. The
formal dining room, 12 feet by 14 feet, has
decorative molding that adds a custom
touch. The living room is a spacious 20 feet,
4 inches by 23 feet, with sliding doors to the
patio and pool beyond. There is a dining
area that overlooks the pool and would be
the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee, if
you don’t just go outside to sit near the pool
and watch the lake. The kitchen is meant
for a gourmet, with a large walk-in pantry,

1 Always a pleasant and pop-
ular early fall event: It’s
the Treasure Coast Pilot Club’s
“Autumn in the Park” juried arts
and crafts show, and it’ll be all
set up along the winding paths,
and beneath the beloved oaks of
Riverside Park in Vero Beach this
Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6-7.
This will be the show’s 31st year
(!) and the Pilot Club organizers
have it down to a science: Antic-
ipating 4,000 or so visitors over
two days doesn’t fluster them at
all. It’s good to know that, unlike
lots of arts and crafts shows, the
items so appealingly displayed
within those dozens of tents – all
the jewelry, plants, crafts, pottery
and fine art – have been made by
the 140 exhibitors themselves.
“There is no commercial resale,”
the Pilots promise. Good to know.
In addition to all those tempting
art and craft items, you’ll also be
tempted by a whole herd of food
and bev vendors. There will also
be roaming performers, live mu-
sic and children’s activities, as
well. Hours: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both
days. Admission: free.

Jewelry is intensely personal. What you wear expresses

CHRIS’ BIG DAY

COMMUNITY’S ANTI-BULLYING MESSAGE
IS BEST GIFT OF ALL AT FESTIVE PARTY

Hundreds attended a festive party last Sunday to help Chris

Ramirez celebrate his 14th birthday at Superplay USA. The Cherub

Foundation invited the community to the event to show support

for Ramirez, who has been bullied and now suffers from anxiety. In

attendance were Treasure Coast Cosplayers, the St. Lucie Sheriff’s K-9

unit, representatives of the St. Lucie Fire District, the St. Lucie Mets’

mascot, the Guardian Angels and others. Chris’ mom, Mary Ramirez,

said “bullying has left a mark on Chris’ soul͟. CrowdFunnit hosted

the birthday party in the hopes of bringing an end to bullying while

celebrating Chris.”  –­ TEXT AND PHOTOS BY LINDA THIBEAULT

HERE IS ANOTHER DEAL WITH LINES A AND B 10 8 7

By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist 653

Lea Michele, an actress and singer, said, “I always knew that I wanted to work, and I knew J4
I wanted to be a singer and an actor. I knew that every choice I made would help me get
to that point. So the better the choices I made, the more of a chance I would have to get AK752
to where I wanted to be.”
WEST EAST
That has been our theme this week. In this last example, how should South play in seven —
spades after West leads the heart queen? What are his choices? Q J 10 9 8 652
K 10 6 3
In the auction, I strongly agree with North’s three-club response, which showed at least 10 8 4 3 742
a five-card suit and eight or more points. South’s final bid was a slight gamble because if
North had the club ace and king, South did not know where the diamond queen would go. 985
Still, the grand slam rated to be at worst on the diamond finesse.
QJ96
With 12 top tricks, declarer can make his contract if either the diamond finesse works
or the clubs break 4-4. So, after taking the first trick, South should play a trump to SOUTH
dummy’s seven, ruff a low club with the spade jack, cross back to dummy with a trump
to the eight, ruff a second low club high and draw East’s last trump by leading the spade AKQJ943
nine to dummy’s 10. Now declarer cashes the club ace and king, discarding his two low
diamonds. AK

Are the clubs 4-4? If so, South throws his diamond queen on the club seven. If not, he takes AQ72
the diamond finesse. Altogether, the odds of success are an acceptable 66.36 percent.
