Puzzler Page – Issue 41

by Garrick Stubblefield

Hello everyone that is viewing this page. I started doing puzzles for about 6-7 months in The Buchanan Chronicle. Just remember that all these puzzles came from my head.

By the way if you’re interested in getting some books of puzzles to pass around for any occasion, feel free to give me a call any day out of the week. My number is 269-259-0547 (before 1:30pm). I’m selling my puzzle books as follows: 1 for $1.50, 3 for $4.00, 6 for $7.50, 12 for $10. A portion will go to the following 3 distributions: 40% will go to The Buchanan Chronicle, 40% will go to veterans of our local Buchanan community, and 20% to offset the supplies. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. When I have yours done then I will meet you somewhere for delivery. Just be sure to call me and leave your name and phone number.

Thank you again for enjoying the puzzles and I will try my best to continue to make them.
