Happy to be #11 but how do you turn "arrears" into two words? Was sure we had this wrong.

Susan Williams North Park 11

OK, looks like the second time this year (last time was 26 March): my working copy of the crossword has all the entries correct - pretty sure I didn't transpose anything. Which entry was judged wrong? Jim Piburn

Faxed my correct entry on June 25. Did you lose it? Also faxed the Easy Sudoku puzzle. Did you lose that one too? I really look forward to these puzzles each week. Don't know what I'll do when I go on vacation. Thanks

Jim Piburn, on 21 across/13 down, you left the last box blank.

Wordnerd- we can not look into you query without your name.

Hope this helps

The puzzle helper

So I DID transpose (or left a box blank, same thing)...thanks for the quick response.
