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.

Solutions to July 9 Puzzles


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.

Puzzles: July 9, 2014


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!
