Solutions to March 5 Puzzles


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.
