“Last and certainly not least, a huge Cheer to all participants who braved the balmy 30-degree day! See you next year!”

Puzzle-lovers appreciate change

Dorothy Hart of Kokomo sends this Cheer for the Tribune:

“I don’t know whom I talked to, but the woman who answered the phone when I called about the puzzle page was very kind. I told her I was calling on behalf of all puzzle-lovers that it was upsetting to have the puzzles in the middle of the page where the fold of the paper landed. It made doing the puzzles more difficult.

“She said others had called about it, too, but that the page layout wasn’t done locally. She would check to see if anything could be done.

“Well, the puzzles have been away from the center fold for several weeks now, and I just want you (and her) to know how much I and a lot of other puzzle-addicts appreciate it.”
