If you are stumped you can always find hints on this week's classified page. And a PDF is attached if you want to print the puzzles out to solve them.

This week's jumble highlights the opening of baseball season, so maybe even Brian Sweeney will want to solve it! And solving our logic puzzle will also teach you some things about famous Catskills artists. Their real names will be revealed next week in the solution; see if you can guess who they are before that! As always, a PDF of the puzzles is attached if you want a printout.

Since this was the debut of "logic puzzles" I have posted a pretty thorough step-by-step solution. If anyone out there is actually working the logic puzzles, please let me know if you find them too easy or too difficult: I can adjust accordingly! Just e-mail graphics@catskillmountainnews.com. Also if you have a good "Catskills" pun, I could sure use them for the word jumbles, and if you send me a good one, I will give you credit!
