Thanks Milen. Assigning superuser role worked.
Speaking of schema's, I logged in as user "postgres" and created a schema
called "schema1" as follows:
CREATE SCHEMA schema1 AUTHORIZATION newuser;
I then typed "\dn" and saw "schema1" in the list.

list! Why not?
I then created a table. Next I entered: "select * from schema1.newtable". An
indicated that "schema1" doesn't exist. How do I make "newuser" aware of his
