Crossword Puzzle Winners Announced For August MindGames

Crossword Winners Announced For August MindGames

Down or across, the clues are clear. You have to complete the puzzle to have a chance at Crossword glory.

August is a melancholy month. Still summer, yet almost autumn. Still bright with memories of carefree summer vacations yet cloudy with nerves about going back to the structure of school. Just like our Crossword Puzzle. So many empty spaces yet only a limited number of letters available to fill them. As you fill in each line you draw nearer to the end…

Philosophical musings aside, August brings the last Blue Moon of summer, the Perseid Meteor Showers and the lucky winners of this month’s puzzle. Whether you’re a Leo or a Virgo, congratulations to all who entered; double congratulations to you lucky 10 who won a $10 McDonald’s Gift Card by being randomly selected.

Our winners are:

• Robert Johnson, Fred W. Eberle Tech Center, Buckhannon, WV
• Shanna Franklin, Tennessee College of Applied Technology, McKenzie, TN
• Daniel Fuller, Gateway Community College, Automotive, New Haven, CT
• Aaron Hicks, Arizona State University, Searcy, AZ
