This week's on air puzzle involves two clues that will yield a solution using a seven-letter word and the middle five letters of that very same word. For example, if the first clue is "heavy" and the second ins "a figure that a skater might make," the answeres would be "weighty" and "eight."

Challenge from March 18: Think of a well-known two-word motto. Say it quickly and it will sound like a different two-word phrase for the result of some auto garage work. What is it?

Answer: Be Prepared. (Beep repaired)

Winner: Sue Grigsby of Everett, Washington.

Challenge from March 25: From Merl Reagle: Take the word, rejuvenate. Add two S's, and rearrange the resulting 12 letters to name a famous person (first and last names). Who is it?
