Answer:  GOOD LEADERSHIP

(I had no trouble with the clue words today, but the answer eluded me for a while.  Maybe, it was due to the superior answer letter layout.  According to my copy of the ralis95 clue word database “boldly” is a new clue word.  It seems very familiar to me, but not with this particular anagram.  I was thinking the middle word was SAILOR, but there weren’t enough Os if the first word was GOOD, and not enough Ss if the last word was SHIP.  I thought I was having difficulty because I was dehydrated from shoveling too much snow.  Maybe I was.  Maybe I’m just getting old.  Or, maybe this was a tough Jumble for a lot of you guys as well?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
