Solutions to Puzzles of June 18, 2014


Once again, I'm late to post solutions to the Puzzles section! What's my excuse this time, you ask? This week, I'm pleading graduation, which for newspaper folks means collecting pictures of graduates and laying out congratulatory messages. Also creating puzzles this week about graduates! Meanwhile, here are the belated solutions to Wednesday's puzzles, one about Burroughs' birds and the other about Summer Camp — hey, it's time to pack for camp!
Lest you think the wait too long, just try working the puzzle in Harper's Magazine each month. You have to wait a month for the next magazine to get the solution, which is usually just fine, as it takes me about six months to solve one! Ouch.

Puzzles: June 18, 2014


Puzzles for this week celebrate former summer camps of the Catskills and some of our — and John Burroughs' — feathered friends. I am hoping to feature some summer camps in an archive column before summer is just a memory. Happy Solving! PDF attached as always, if you like to solve on a printout.
