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.

My apologies for late posting of solutions; I have been living in a "non-cyber" space for much of this week; what a reminder of the good old days, when we all worked puzzles with a pencil with a good eraser!

Please note: the first across clue in this week's puzzle in the print edition is one letter too long at the end. The puzzle posted here is correct! Sorry for the confusion.
This week we have two new style puzzles, one is an acrostic for those who like crossword-style puzzles and a sudoku, which I have been wanting to feature but had to figure out how to give it a Catskills twist. Sharpen those pencils! Solutions will be posted sometime today! A printable PDF file is attached for easier solving.
