Well, modem problems kept The Free Choice E-zine from being online last weekend, so we're picking up where we left off before the technical difficulties.
This week's (which should have been last week's) Puzzle Corner salutes the 2012 Summer Olympics.
What MAJOR milestone was achieved this year that has never been done in a previous Summer Olympics?
Hint: Think bigger than a single event.
THE LETTER SHUFFLE
How many new words can you make out of the letters in OLYMPICS?
We'll reveal all next weekend, new modem willing.
But for now, let's crack open THE ANSWERS BOX and finally reveal the results from the July 28 Puzzle Corner's salute to classic television.
TRIVIA TIMEOn Adam-12, the badge number for Officer Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) was 744, which puts that character joining the force within a year of Sgt. Joe Friday on Dragnet; and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) was issued 2430.
IN OTHER WORDSUntil the 1980s, a series still in active production on network television could not send older episodes into syndication under the original series name. With that in mind, do you know what titles the programs listed below presented their reruns under?
01. The Andy Griffith Show (1960-1968) = Andy of Mayberry
02. Bonanza (1959-1973) = Ponderosa
03. Gunsmoke (1955-1975) = Marshall Dillion
