If Hillman wins, and gets the injunction

cil election in which four candidates are on
the ballot – and she and another disqualified

up a hefty bond in an amount equal to the
estimated cost of putting on a special elec-

Kanarek brought this up, saying “it’s a

That’s where the sticky legal questions
come into play. If she doesn’t have $25,000
sitting around, can Hillman fund that cost via
campaign donations if her candidacy is in lim-

1 “The Game’s Afoot or Holmes
for the Holidays” is a very
funny, drawing-room mystery (the
playwright Ken Ludwig bills it as
“a comedy thriller”), and you can
(and should) catch it at the Vero
Beach Theatre Guild starting Tues-
day, Nov. 6. Ludwig, known for his
period farces, also penned “Lend
Me A Tenor” and “Moon Over Buf-
falo.” “The Game’s Afoot or Holmes
for the Holiday” action takes place
during the Christmas Season, 1936.
According to the Guild’s synop-
sis, William Gillette, a world-fa-
mous Broadway star known for his
starring role in the play “Sherlock
Holmes,” is convalescing at his
home following an attempt on his
life, and decides to cheer himself
up by inviting his fellow cast mem-

So we stopped in for an early dinner.
For starters, my husband naturally or-
dered a cup of New England clam chowder
($5.25) and I decided to start with what
they call Gloustah Cay Chowdah (this is

and spicy Bahamian conch chowder that

Market’s lobster roll was an excellent
rendition of this classic dish, big chunks Depending on which
of lobster with fairly little mayonnaise – of the many options you
choose, dinner for two – with a bottle of
decent white wine – will run you anywhere
from $70 to $90 before tax and tip.
Even for those not well acquainted with
the area, the restaurant is not hard to find.
It is approximately a mile east of U.S. 1
on the street that serves the old Treasure
Coast Square Mall, where Vero residents
used to shop before our own mall opened
in the mid-1990s.
If you have a hankering for New England
seafood favorites – or for fresh fish from
southern waters – you should give this un-
pretentious restaurant a try.

HOPE FOR ONE CARD TO BE WELL-PLACED AJ3
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist J 10 8 7 5 4
Carmine Gallo, an expert in business communications and leadership skills, said, “Nothing KJ2
is more dramatic than a well-placed pause.”
That pause might also be critical in a comedy. At the bridge table, though, we might need 10 9 8 EAST
one card to be well-placed. In this deal, South was in six hearts. Which one card did he 2
hope East held? How did South play after West led the spade 10? 9653 Q764
10 7 6 4 2
South’s jump to four hearts, a superaccept, promised four-card support and a good hand 93
for hearts. I believe, though, that the hand should have had a doubleton.
Q 10 8
Declarer had 10 top tricks: two spades, six hearts and two diamonds. He could have
established a club winner and had two finesses that he might have tried. AJ85
There was a temptation to take the spade finesse at trick one, but South realized that that SOUTH
could wait. If he could just find East with the club ace, the contract was safe.
Declarer took the first trick with his spade king, drew trumps ending on the board and led
dummy’s club. East defended well by not taking the trick. However, South won with his AKQ6
king, ruffed the club three, played a trump to his hand, led the club queen and, instead of
ruffing it, discarded dummy’s low diamond. A74
East took the trick, but was endplayed. If he led a spade or diamond, it would have been KQ3
away from his queen into dummy’s tenace. So he tried the club jack, but declarer ruffed
in his hand (a seventh trump trick) and discarded the spade jack from the dummy. He Dealer: South; Vulnerable: North-South
claimed two spades, six hearts, two diamonds, one club and the club ruff.
