Missing Puzzle Place in today

SHAMOKIN - Friday's Puzzle Place feature was mistakenly published in Wednesday's edition this week, meaning the results from Tuesday and the puzzles for Thursday were not provided.

We've published Wednesday Puzzle Place in today's classified section, which should allow our readers to catch up with Jumble, Crossword, Sudoku and Cryptoquotes.

We apologize for the mixup.
