Solutions to March 19 Puzzles


Since this was the debut of "logic puzzles" I have posted a pretty thorough step-by-step solution. If anyone out there is actually working the logic puzzles, please let me know if you find them too easy or too difficult: I can adjust accordingly! Just e-mail graphics@catskillmountainnews.com. Also if you have a good "Catskills" pun, I could sure use them for the word jumbles, and if you send me a good one, I will give you credit!

Puzzles for March 19, 2014

Click below to see the solutions to last week's puzzles. One note: it's hard to make all the word search terms stand out when they overlap so much. If you still can't find a word or two, email me at graphics@catskillmountainnews.com and I'll diagram that one for you. And our cryptogram is from Catskills historian, columnist and school superintendent, Prof. Lincoln Long. I suspect we'll be hearing more from him in future cryptograms. This one comes from a beautiful column he wrote about his dog, Major. I will try to print excerpts from it in a future Archives column.

Did you know this is Brain Awareness Week? Science has shown that working puzzles helps keep you sharp for the more serious challenges in life. Our word jumble this week is dairy-related, and our cryptogram quotes a successful dairy farmer from more than a century ago. Solutions will be revealed here next week and as always a cryptogram hint can be found on this week's classifieds page. A downloaded PDF of the puzzles is also attached below. Happy Solving!
