Puzzles: July 16, 2014

Our puzzles this week challenge you to remember some Catskills' occupations and industries that are no more or are very rarely practiced any more. And our cryptogram is from an early 20th century writer who has an invigorating account of his "tramping" through our neck of the woods, I encourage you to solve it so you can discover more of his wonderful account of our region. As always a printable PDF version is attached that you can download.

As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short getting these solutions posted. I thought that Pinwheel Puzzle was pretty tough. Next week we'll relax with an easy cryptogram and a Word Jumble as always. If there are kinds of puzzles you prefer, let me know at graphics@catskillmountainnews.com.

I thought we'd try another new puzzle — a different kind of word search — this week. Our jumble celebrates National Ice Cream Month with a mouthful of flavors. For our word search, your own knowledge of Catskill place names will give you an edge. As always, a PDF is attached for printouts and you'll find clues for BOTH puzzles in our print edition on the classified page. Happy solving!

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.
