Answer:  TALK OF THE TOWN

(Great pun.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “tantia” before.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble.  I don’t think it hinted at the answer.    The cartoon is great.  I like the town seal on the wall behind the mayor.  Nice touch.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/03/16

Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”   —   Napoleon Hill

(A challenging cryptoquote!  There was not the word “A”, or “I”, or “the”, or “that”, so that always makes things a little tougher.  I figured either the J or the H were the letter E, and it was the word “effort” which became my key.  I didn’t even notice that “struggle” contained double letters until I was half way done.  The quote rings true too.  Remember the story of the butterfly that was emerging from its cocoon?  The human thought he’d “help” it out, by carefully cutting the cocoon.  But, as a result, the butterfly’s wing muscles did not fully develop.  The butterfly could not fly away, and was eaten by a bird.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
