Trio of suspected thieves arrested


< BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
A Greenwood woman and two men
from Chattahoochee are accused of rob-
bing a store at gunpoint near Chatta-
hoochee in Gadsden County, and then
a fewhours later binding three victims
in a Jackson County home invasion and
eventually forcing one, at gunpoint, to go
to his bank to withdraw money from his
account. The three also allegedly stole a
Pontiac Grand Am from one of the home
invasion victims.
Dothan Police Department had been
notified of the events in Jackson and


Gadsden counties and,. with a descrip-
tion of the stolen vehicle in hand, ar-
rested the three around 4 a.m. Monday
after they pulled into the parking lot of a
Super 8 motel. One was driving the sto-
len car and another was driving the 2013
Chrysler 200 they had been using priorto
the theft of the Pontiac, according tolocal
authorities.
. Arrested on his 22nd birthday, Chatta-
hoochee resident Woodrow Wilson Pride
III is charged in the case with home inva-
sion robbery, aggravated battery, aggra-
vated assault with a firearm, grand theft,
and armed robbery.


Trasdarius Rashad Barber, 22, also of
Chattahoochee, is charged with the same
offenses.
Greenwood woman Christy M. Cook,
28, is charged with the same offenses. The
Chrysler belongs to her, authorities say.
Officials allege the three robbed a
Shell Station at 1-10 near Chattahooch-
ee around 10 p.m. Sunday. Authorities
shared some video surveillance footage
with other agencies, and Sneads Police
Officer Ashley Johnson recognized Cook,
authorities said. That information was
passed on to the Jackson County Sheriff's
Office, and deputies started searching for


the trio and the Chrysler, which showed
up in the video.
Around 1:30 a.m. on Monday, while
officers were still looking for the store
robbery suspects, Cook allegedly ap-
proached three men at a home on High-
way 71 south near Marianna, just south
of SR 71's intersection with U.S. 90.
* She told them she had run out of gas
and needed help, authorities said. The
men assisted her but were then attacked
by Barber and Pride when they returned
to their residence, according to officials.

Officials seek help


identifying two in


security footage


The Jackson County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's help
identifying the two subjects shown in this security footage from the
Kmee store in Campbellton.

Cigars stolen from convenience store


From staff reports
Law enforcement officials
have released images from
security footage recorded at
a Campbellton store. They're
hoping the public can help
them identify the two subjects
shown. .
On Wednesday, June 12, the
Jackson Counmty Sheriff's Office
responded to a burglary alarm
at the Kmee convenience store
on US 231 in Campbellton. Re-
sponding deputies confirmed
that entry had been made
by breaking the glass on the


store's front door.
JCSO previously reported
that a person or persons had
entered the store and stolen
an undisclosed amount of ci-
gars. During the investigation,
officials recovered video from
the store security camera that
showed two subjects had en-
tered the store.
Sheriff Lou Roberts is re-
questing that anyone with in-
formation regarding the iden-
tity of the two subjects contact
the JCSO Criminal Investiga-
tions Division at 482-9664 or
Crime Stoppers at 526-5000.

raceto spend more time with family


Matt Gaetz gains
clearer path to take
, seathed by his father,

BYANGIECOOK
acook@jcfloridan.com
With his main competition
dropping out of the 2016 state
Senate race, Rep. Matt Gaetz,
R-Fort Walton Beach, may now
have an easier path to victory
and a better shot at succeeding
his father, Senate;President Don
Gaetz, R-Niceville.
Less than six months ,after de-
claring himself a candidate, state
Rep. Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama
City, has announced he's bow-


"I have missed a lot of time
with my youngfamily and
I do not think it is fair to be
away from them any longer
at this time."
Jimmy Patronis,
Representative

ing out of the race for the seat
currently held by Don Gaetz. In
a campaign email sent to sup-
porters and members of the
press, Patronis said the decision
was spurred by a desire to spend
more time with his family.
"I have missed a lot of valuable
time with my young family and I


do not think it is fair to be away
from them any longer at this
time."
As the Floridan reported late
last rear, Patronis, a Bay County
businessman whose family runs
Capt. Anderson's Restaurant,
filed Dec. 3 as a candidate for
the District i state Senate. That
seat represents Jackson, Holmes,
Washington, Walton, Bay and "
part of Okaloosa counties.
Matt Gaetzijoined the race in
May.
Monday afternoon, Gaetz took
to social media to tip his hat to ,.,ar, '.iIAo
Patronis. On Twitter, he said, Fla. House Speaker pro tempore Marti Coley (left) and Rep. Jimmy
"Today we'celebrate the service Patronis pose for a photo during a Jackson County Republican Party
fundraiser, Thursday, June 20, in Marianna,. Fla. Patronis announced
See PATRONIS, Page 5A. Monday, July 1 that he was dropping out of the 2016 state Senate race.

Keep your pets safe for Fourth of July
p y.1 L ;'. .. **


Special to the Floridan

The Fourth of July is a
time for celebration and
parties, but for some
pets it can be traumatic.
Things like fireworks,
some barbecue foods,
pool chemicals andeven
salt water can turn the
holiday into a nightmare
for pets. -
"Noise phobias are
by far the most com-
mon issue for pets and
their owners, but our
call center is also inun-
Sdated with pet poisoning
cases on the Fourth of,
July," said Dr. Justine Lee,
DVM, DACVECC, DABT
And associate director
of veterinary services at
Pet Poison Helpline. "You
can avoid heartaches and*
unexpected veterinarian
expenses by ensuring that
your pets don't ingest cer-
tain potentially poisonous
items."
The veterinary and
toxicology experts at Pet
Poison Helpline offer this
list of common dangers
that pose a threat to pets
on the Fourth of July.
Fireworks: In addition
to being loud and scary
to pets when lit, unused
'fireworks can be toxic if
ingested. Many contain
hazardous chemicals like
chlorates that harm red
blood cells and the kid-
neys, soluble barium salts
that cause life-threaten-
ing drops in potassium,
and sulfur and color-
ing agents that contain
dangerous' heavy metals.
Gastrointestinal issues

like vomiting, a painful
abdomen and bloody
diarrhea can result. The
severity of the reaction
will depend on the type of
firework and the amount
Ingested. In severe cases,
pets can suffer tremors
or seizures, along with
acute kidney failure, bone
marrow changes, shallow
breathing and jaundice.
When lighting off fire-
works, its best to keep
pets indoors, away from
the noise and risk for
thermal injury
D Barbecue Foods: We
love cookouts, but they
can have the opposite
effect ohn pets, While
rich savory meats aren't
::poisonous to dogs or cats,
they can cause anything
'from mild vomiting and
diarrhea to full-fledged
fatal pancreatitis, espe-
cially in sensitive dog
breeds like miniature.
schnauzers, Yorkshire
terriers, and Shetland
sheepdogs. Corn-on-the-
cob can also cause issues
"ranging from vomiting
arid diarrhea, to forming a
severe foreign body in the
dog's intestines requiring
surgery. Desserts made
with xyitol, a sugar-free
sweetener, can also be
harmful, causing an
acute drop in blood sugar
and even liver failure.
Likewise, foods contain-
ing grapes and raisins
can result in severe, fatal
acute kidney failure when
ingested by dogs,
D Pool Chemicals: Chlo-'
rine is a common pool
chemical. When ingested


in its concentrated form
(e.g.,powder, tablets, etc.)
prior to being placed in
the pool, it can result in
severe corrosive injury to
bothhumans and pets.
Burns to the eyes, skin,
mouth, and esophagus
can develop, and result in
permanent injury. Once
diluted appropriately in
the pool water, chlorine
no longer poses a cor-
rosive risk. Always keep
pool chemicals and clean-
ers safely out of the reach
.of pets. .
)) Salt Water-If .
celebrating by the ocean,
be aware of salt poison-
ing. If large amounts of
ocean water are ingested
while playing on the
beach, hypemrnatremia
(an elevated salt level) can
occur, resulting in vomit-
ing, diarrhea, lethargy,
excessive thirst or urina-
tion, tremors, seizures,
coma,and even death.
Instead of allowing dogs
to drink from the oceah,
provide them with fresh
water. If salt water is
ingested, immediate
veterinary treatment is
recommended. .
The veterinary and
toxicology experts at Pet
Poison Helpline wish you
and your loved ones a safe
and happy Fourth of July
holiday. If, however, you
think your dog or cat may
have ingested something
harmful, take action
immediately. Contact

Julian Marsh (left) poses with his husband Tray Popov, a
Bulgarian graduate student, and their Yorkshire Terriers, Rosie
(left) 4, and Phoebe, 4, at their home, Monday, July 1,2013 in
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Gay couple may be

first in nation to win

immigration petition


The Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE -A
Bulgarian graduate student
and his American husband,'
are the first gay couple in
the nation to have their ap-
plication' for immigration
benefits approved after the
Supreme Court .ruling on
same-sex marriages, their
lawyer says.
The approval means that
Traian. Popov, here on a
student visa, will be able to
apply for a green card, and
eventually U.S. citizen-
ship. But he won't be able
to work or visit his family
back home for at least an-
other three to six months
while his application bene-
fits are being be processed.
And his marriage to Julian
Marsh, performed in New
York, still, won't be recog-
nized in Florida where they
live.
"It's unbelievable how
that impacts you," Marsh
told The Associated Press
on Sunday. "They make
you feel more and more
like a second-class citizen
and they don't want you.
And that's how I feel about
Florida.",
Two days after the Su-
preme Court struck down
a provision of a federal law
denying federal benefits
to married gay couples,
Marsh and Popov were no-
tified Friday afternoon that
their green card petition
was approved by U.S. Citi-
zenship and Immigration
Services.


The U.S. Department of
Homeland Security could
not immediately confirm
Monday whether this case
was the first. On Wednes-
day, department Secre-
tary Janet Napolitano ap-
plauded the court's move
to strike down the Defense
of Marriage Act and said
federal officials would im-
plement the decision so all
couples would be treated
fairly.
Popov and Marsh's law-
yer, Lavi Soloway. of The
DOMA Project, says his or-
ganization has filed about
100 green-card petitions
for same-sex couples since
2010 and expects more, to
be approved in the next
fewdays.
SLawyers, say the. rul-
ing would help same-sex
couples who are running
put of options or are facing
deportations.
"Now all, of those cases
can go forward in the way
they should with the gov-
ernment respecting the
fact that there is a legally
recognizable marriage
there," said Laura Lichter,
past president of the Amer-
ican Immigration Lawyers
Association.
There are roughly 36,000
couples in the country in
which one person is a U.S.
citizen and one is not, ac-
cording to Immigration
Equality, a nonprofit or-
ganization that handles
immigration issues for
lesbian, bisexual,. gay and
transgender couples.

Police officers testify in George Zimmermantrial


The Associated Press'

SANFORD .- Jurors in
the George Zimmerman
murder trial on Monday
heard testimony and re-
cordings of the neighbor-
hood watch volunteer
describing his fight with
17-year-old Trayvon Mar-
tin to police and how he
feared for his life before he'
shot the teen.
Zimmerman said in his
first interview at the po-
lice station that he saw
Martin walking through
his neighborhood on a
dark, rainy night while
Zimmerman was driving
to the grocery store. He
told Officer Doris Single-
ton that he didn't recog-
nize Martin and that there
had been recent break-
ins at his townhome
complex.
"These guys always get
away," Zimmerman told
Singleton, a statement
similar to one that pros-
ecutors have used previ-


ously to try to show that
Zimmerman was increas-
ingly frustrated with the
burglaries and his en-
counter with Martin was a
breaking point.
Zimmerman told the
police officer that he lost
track of .Martin and got
out of his truck to look for
a street name he could re-
lay to police dispatcher.
When the dispatcher sug-
gested Zimmerman didn't
need to follow Martin,
Zimmerman started to
head back to his vehicle.
At that point, Zimmerman
said Martin jumped out
of some bushes, punched
him and he fell to the
ground.
Zimmerman said that
Martin began hitting his
head against the sidewalk
as Zimmerman yelled for
help and that Martin told
him, "You're going to die
tonight."
SWith Zimmerman's shirt
and jacket pushed up
during the struggle and


his holstered guin now
visible, he thought Martin
was reaching for his fire-
arm holstered around his
waist. Zimmerman told
the officer that he shot
Martin and the teen said,
"You got me."
In a written statement,
Singleton read in court,
Zimminerman refers to Mar-
tin as "the-suspect." Sin-
gleton said it didn't appear
that Zimmerman showed
any anger when talking
about the teen. Prosecu-
tors must show that Zim-
merman acted with ill will
or a depraved mind in or-
der to get a second-degree
murder conviction.
Singleton recounted that
Zimmerman noticed a
cross she was wearing and
said: "In Catholic religion,
it's always' wrong to kill


someone. .
The officer responded,
"If what you're telling me
is true, I don't think that
what God meant was that
you couldn't save your
own life."
Zimmerman also
acted surprised when
. Singleton told him Martin
'was dead.
"He's dead?!" Singleton
recalled Zimmerman say-
ing, before he lowered
his head' toward the
table in the interrogation
room.
Jurors also heard from
the lead detective in the
case, Officer :Chris Serino,
who asked him several
pointed questions about
whether the, teenager
could have felt threatened
because Zimmerman was
following him.

Lady Liberty reopening July 4,

months after Superstorm Sandy


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Months
after Superstorm Sandy
swamped her little island,
the Statue of Liberty will
finally welcome visitors
again on Independence
Day
Sandy made landfall
one day after the statue's
126th birthday, flooding
most of the 12 acres she
stands upon with water
that surged as high as 8
feet. Lady Liberty her-
self was spared, but the
surrounding grounds
on Liberty Island took


a beating.
Railings broke, docks
and paving stones were
torn up and buildings
were flooded. The storm
destroyed boilers, sew-
age pumps and electrical
systeins.
Hundreds of National
Park Service workers
from as far away as Cali-
fornia and Alaska spent
weeks cleaning mud
and debris. In recent
months, all mechanical
equipment was moved to
higher ground as work-
ers put the island back in
order.


The damage to Liberty
Island and neighbor-
ing Ellis Island cost an
estimated $59 million.
Some repairs to brick
walkways and docks are
still underway, but on
July 4 visitors will arrive
via ferry boats once again
to tour the national
landmark.
"People will have,
more or less, the same
access to Liberty Is-
land that they had
before," said John War-
ren, a spokesman for the
Statue of Liberty National
Monument.

Egypt's

military


issues

ultimatum
The Associated Press

CAIRO Egypt's military
issued a "last-chance" ulti-
matum Monday to Presi-
dent Mohammed Morsi,
giving him 48 hours to
meet the demands of mil-
lions of protesters in the
streets seeking the ouster
of the Islamist leader or the
generals will intervene and
impose their own plan for,
the country.
The military's statement,
read on state TV, put enor-
mous pressure on Morsi
to step down and sent gi-
ant crowds opposing the
president :, in Cairo and
other cities into ,delirious
celebrations of singing,
dancing and fireworks. But
the ultimatum raised wor-
ries on both sides the mnili-
tary couldo.'outright take
over, as it did after the 2011
ouster of autocrat Hosni
M ubarak. :- ,
It also raised the risk of0'
a .backlash from Morsi's-
Islamist backers; includ-,
ing his powerful Muslim
Brotherhood and hard-lin-
ers, some of whom- once
belonged 'to armed mili-
tant groups. Already they.
vowed to resist what'they
depicted as a threat ;ofa
coup against a legitimately
elected president.
Pro-Morsi 'marches
numbering in the several:
thousands began' after-
nightfall in a string .of cit-
ies around the country
sparking clashes in, spme:;;
pIlaces. An alliance of the
Brotherhood andIslamists
read a statement at a tele-
vised conference calling on
people to rally 'to prevent
"any attempt to overturn"
Morsi's election.
'Any coup of any kind
against legitimacy will only
pass over our dead bodies,".
one leading' Brotherhood
figure, Mohammed el-Bel-
tagi, told .'a rally by thou-
sands oflIslamists outside a
mosque near the Ittihadiya
presidential palace.
A line of around 1,500
men vwith shields, helmets
apd -sticks -' assigned
with protecting the rally
stamped their feet in
military-like lines, singing,
"Stomp our feet, raise afire.
Ilam's march is-coming."'
SAfter midnight. Moisi s
office issued a' statement
. saying a "modem demo-
cradc state" was one of the
main achievements ofthe
anti-Mubarak revolution,
adding, "With all its force,
Egypt will not allow itself to
be taken backward." It said
SMorsi was still reviewing
the' military's statement,
'but added some parts of it
"could cause disturbances
in the complicated nation-
al scene."
U.S. President Barack-
Obama said the U.S. is
committed to democracy
in Egypt, not any par-
ti'ular leader. Traveling in
Tanzania, Obama said thtat
although Morsi was demo'-'
cratically elected, the gov-
ernment must respect its'
opposition and minority
groups.
Egypt's Presidency said
in a statement that Morsi
received phone call from
Obama. According to the
statement, Obama said the
US administration "sup-
ports peaceful democratic
transition in'Egypt."
'Army troops: at check-'
points on roads leading


to the prp;Morsi rally
searched cars for weapons
after reports that some.
Islamists were' arming
themselves.
In the second day
straight day of anti-Morsi
protests nationwide, men
and women danced out-
side the Ittihadiya palace,
some cried with joy and
bands on a stage played
revolutionary songs after

Paul staying with

L.A. Clippers
The Associated Press

Chris Paul is staying with the Los Angeles
Clippers.
The AUll-Star point guard agreed to a new
deal on the first day free agency opened,
agent Leon Rose confirmed.
Paul posted a message on his Twitter ac-
count Monday morning, saying "I'M IN!!!"
#CLIPPERNATIQN
. Paul led the Clippers to their first Pacific
Division title last season and his decision
.to stay is the second big victory for the
longtime losers in this offseason, follow-
ing the signing of Doc Rivers as their new
coach.
Paul can earn about $108 million over
five years withthe Clippers. The deal can't
be signed until July 10, after next season's
salary cap is set. '
The two-time Olympic gold medalist has
helped turn around the Clippers franchise
in two seasons since coming in a trade from
the New Orleans Hornets. They made the
playoffs in both seasons, advancing to the
second round in 2012, and went 56-26 this
season, the best record in their history.
Paul averaged 16.9 points, 9.7 assists
and an NBA-best 2.4 steals per game. He
was the Western Conference player of the
month in December, when the Clippers
went 16-0.
Paul spent his first six seasons with the
Hornets before lie was dealt to the Clip-
pers, shortly after the NBA, then serving
as owners of the Hornets, stopped a trade
that would have sent him instead to the
Lakers.
That decision has paid off big for the
Clippers, long the second-class citizens
in Los Angeles but the team that played a
much more exciting style and had much
better results than the Lakers last season.
They fired Vinny Del Negro even after
their 2012-13 success but landed one of
the NBA's marquee coaches in Rivers, who
led the Boston Celtics to the 2008 NBA
championship.

land, where the Tourwill be de-

anything Corsica could offer.
"I'm quite relieved to be head-
ing off Corsica now," Froome
said. "Hopefully, the race will
settle down a little bit."

15 is enough

for theACC

The Associated Press

NEW YORK The Atlantic
Coast Conference is now a 15-
team league and it might just
stay that way for a while.
After Commissioner John
Swofford welcomed Pittsburgh,
Syracuse and Notre Dame to
the ACC at a news conference at
the NASDAQ stock exchange in
Manhattan, he said that further
expansion isn't on the agenda.
"It's not a topic of conversa-
tion for us right now," he said. "I
would not anticipate it being in
the future, but we'll see. I. don't
predict the future much any-
more, I've learned better. But it's
not something that's on the table
for discussion in our league right
Snow." '' '.
Swofford was joined at the
news conference by Florida State
football coach Jimbo Fisher, Vir-
ginia Tech football coach Frank
Beamer Notre Dame basketball
coach Mike Briey, Syracuse bas-
ketball coach Jim Boeheim and
former Pittsburgh great and now
Arizona Cardinals star, receiver
Larry Fitzgerald. The group then
.,took part in a closing bell cer-
emony at the stock market..
The ACC even brought the
mascots to Times Square for an
event it dubbed' #ACCtakeNYC
on Twitter. The fuzzy crew ofcos-
tumed characters was bouncing
around Manhattan on Sunday,
posting pictures on Twitter from
various tourist attractions.
The ACC does have one more
lineup change scheduled for
next year, when Maryland leaves
for the Big Ten and Louisville
joins. ,
The Cardinals were picked to
replace the Terrapins ahead of
Cincinnati and Cbnnecticut
Both of those schools lobbied
the ACC'lo be next out of the
Big East and both remain in the
newly renamed American Ath-
letic Conference.
If the ACC ever does decide to
go to 17 members 16 for foot-
ball as Notre Dame will remain
an -independent in its flagship
sport Cincinnati and Con-
necticut would make geograph-
ic sense And fit in perfectly with
what is shaping up to be. the
mostlformidable basketball con-
ference in the country. Syracuse
and Pittsburgh have been peren-
nial top-20 basketball programs
in recent years, and Louisville is
the defending NCAA champion.
"From an .athletic perspec-
tive, I think it's more than fair
to say this is the strongest col-
lection of basketball programs
that has ever !been assembled
in one conference," Swofford
said. "And our potential from
a football standpoint is truly
unlimited.",


Shocker
From PageB 1 ,
the American couldn't
win another game despite
having four break points.
at 4-3.
Lisicki converted her
second match point with
a forehand winner.
"I'm 'still shaking," Lis-
icki said in a post-match
interview, covering her
face with her hands to
wipe away tears. "inm just
so happy."
Williams said her serve
usually her main weap-
on let.her down in the
third set.
"I felt that I was on the'
verge of winning," she:
said. "At that point I just
was physically unable to
hold serve. ... You have to
be ready and willing to
hold your, serve. I wasn't
willing or able, probably
didn't even want to hold
my serve today."
Lisicki reached the semi-
finals at the All England
Club in 2011 but this will
rank as her biggest victory
at the grass-court Grand
Slam. She has eliminated
the reigning French Open
champion the last four
times she played Wimble-
don, having missed the
tournament in 2010. She
ousted Sharapova in the
fourth round last year.
Djokovic reached his
17th straight Grand Slam

with last week's loss in the
second round.
Murray, facing the ever-
increasing pressure to be-
come the first British man
since 1936 to win Wimble-
don, was in trouble in the
second set. He trailed 5-2
against Youzhny, who was
a 2012 Wimbledon quar-
terfinalist, but broke back
when the Russian served
for the set at 5-4. Then,
down 5-3 in the tiebreaker,
Murray took the set's last
four points. He broke' im-
mediately in the third, and
cruised from there to set
up a match with Fernando
Verdasco of Spain.
Murray is the only British
player left in the tourna-
ment, after Laura Robson

Kvitova was the first to


'reach the last eight, beat-
ing Carla Suarez Navarro

will play Kirsten Flipkens
of Belgium, who reached
her first career Grand

her ranking plummeted to

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My only child just graduated.
high school. Her'sumriner is full of parties,
working and having furi with her friends.
This includes staying, out later on week-
day evenings.
As the only parent, I work full time and
need to be in bed by a decent time. I don't
wan t to be awakened bVher coming home
or, worse, worrying about whether she's
OK. She's a great girl with a good: head
on her shoulders. But as a widow, I know
firsthand that bad things can happen to
the people you love.
How do I deal with this new wrinkle as
my daughter teeters on the brink of adult-
hood? She still needs rules and guidance.
I don't want to be overprotective. Is there *
a compromise that will put my mind at
ease and let her enjoy her summer?
,- MOM

Dear Mom: You are smart to anticipate
these problems and understand the pit-
falls. First, if your daughter has a job, she,
too; -needs to get some rest. Discuss this


with her. Explain the problem from your
perspective, and let her weigh in. Work
out a "contract," in which she agrees to re-
spond promptly to your calls or texts and
to call if she cannot get home safely, .and
you agree to pick her up, etc, Butyou can-
not protect her from eerything. Mom,
and in the near. future, you _wfilLbave no
control over it anyway. It will help ifyou
train yourself in the difficult task ofletting
go. .-

Dear Annie: Your reply to "Need Help
in California" was right on. My cousin
has been married to her first cousin for
more than 50 years. They have raised four
healthy, intelligent kids who have 'ubse-.
quently given birth to healthy, intelligent
grandkids. ,
Our extended family may have fretted
a bit at first, but We loved them and no-
ticed immediately ,that they were a great
match. They still are.

:Bridge

Herbert Beerbbhm Tree, an English actor and theater
manager who died in 1917, said, 'A committee should con-
sistof three men, two of whom are absent."'
So, a male bridge, declarer is a committee. In this deal,
how should the committee play in three no-trump after
West leads the heart jack?
SMost authorities recommend not using Stayman when
responder has 4-3-3-3 distribution with a four-card' ma-
jor. And thatwill be right most of the time. However, when
there is a 4-4 fit and opener has 4-4-3-2 distribution, the
suit in which the partnership has only five cards could
prove to be a fatalweakness. (Note that in this deal four
.spades has no chance, but if West had a second spade, it
would be makable.)
.South starts with eight top tricks: one spade, three hearts,
two diamonds and two clubs. His order of business is to
collect a second spade trick. And there is a guaranteed line
of play. After taking the first trick, declarer should cash his
spade ace. Here, the queen drops fromWest, so South con-
tinues with a spade to dummy's jack. But if the ace collects
only low cards, declarer still plays another spade and must
eventually establish that second winner.
Note that initially playing a spade to the 10lIs fatal here.
The tempting finesse must'be deleted from the agenda.
Finally,. here is another question: Suppose South needs
three spade tricks. What should he do?
Now it is correct to play low to the 10 on the first round.,
And if it loses to the queen or king, South next cashes his
ace. He has a paltry 37 percent chance of success.
