Answer:  POWER STRUGGLE

(Currently – get it? – they are brothers in arms, against the fossil fuel industry!  But hopefully, some day soon, wind and solar power will become more competitor, than ally.  Renewables are the future, whether some like them, or not.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but surprisingly all of the jumbles came up as new.  I didn’t struggle with any of them today.  The answer letter layout was a superior jumble.  Nothing too obvious about it.  Very amusing cartoon.  Wind farm and solar farm, meshing with traditional farms.  What’s not to like?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I couldn’t see “stereo” for the longest time

    Been there, done that, ej. STEREO is one of those nasty words with an odd sequence of common letters that could fit together many ways. I bet many Jumble players get stuck on it at least once. I sure did the first time and had to “back into it” (figure out the final answer first, then return to STEREO knowing at least which letters were in the circles, which reduces the permutations to try). It pays to memorize STEREO for Jumble, because they will use it again. I recommend keeping a list of these tough ones in a spreadsheet and reviewing your list from time to time, so you can knock STEREO down as fast as PUDDLE next time.

    I had to squint at that one, too, ejwo. I started to write RESTORE …

    Glad to know I’m not the only one. ALWAYS have trouble with stereo & then get frustrated cuz it happened again, like today. Once I got it the solution was easy. Thus is life for a jumble fan, eh?

    Wow! I think I’ve just heard this same complaint in, at least, QUADRAphonic stereo! LOL! —YUR

    Yep, I had fits with ‘stereo’ as well! Happy to be in stellar company, though!

    Might be, UR. From Wikipedia:
    Dolby Stereo 70 mm Six Track refers to the use of Dolby noise reduction on the six magnetic soundtracks of a 70 mm print. This was first used on some prints of the MGM film Logan’s Run released in 1976.
