Solutions to March 26 Puzzles


Fill free to visit this page even if you don't work the puzzles, you'll learn fun facts about our region. The jumble was in honor of Baseball's opening day, and the logic puzzle honored four Catskills "masters." Although the puzzle used fictitious names to make it harder to solve, the REAL masters are Alf Evers, Walt Meade, J. Francis Murphy and Hilt Kelly. And yes, Hilt really did start practicing his craft, self-taught, when he was 5! If you are ever stumped, you can find hints on the classifieds page. If you ever have questions about a solution, feel free to email me at graphics@catskillmountainnews.com for clarification.
