Visual Description:  Grumpy golfers taking issue with the TV weatherman.

ORNOH  =  HONOR,  TEMPY  =  EMPTY,  WELLOB  =  BELLOW,  SNORPI  =  PRISON   —   Giving us:  HRETEWISO

Clue/Question:  The forecaster was weather wise, but the golfers considered him . . .

Answer:  OTHERWISE

(I nearly gave up on this one!  The clue words were so easy, I thought this would be a piece of cake.  I played with WORTH, WORST, WHERE, SHORT, HORSE, SEWER, TOWER and SHOWER, to no avail.  I actually did isolate the “wise” at one point fairly early on.  But, when I looked at “horet” I just didn’t see “other”.  I took a break to do the cryptoquote, and that one nearly did me in, as well!  But, I finally got it.  And then, somehow . . . I was otherwise enlightened!  Nice job, Jeff and . . . er the other guy.)   — YUR

Dealing with network executives is like being nibbled to death by ducks.”   — Eric Sevareid

(One of the last true American television journalists.  Intelligent, and serious about getting at the truth.  He was fortunate to retire before the networks were taken over by huge conglomerates.  This puzzle very nearly got the better of me.  Very tough, indeed.)   — YUR
