Did you have some trouble with the Indy's weekly "Jonesin'" crossword puzzle, titled "Free to Be," in last week's issue? Well, I don't blame you.

Due to a production error, the "down" clues were for a different puzzle. I'm no expert when it comes to crosswordin', but my guess is that mistake makes coming up with the correct answers just a wee bit more difficult.

First off, our apologies for the confusion and potential frustration. Second, if you've been studiously completing our crossword puzzle every week for six years — as one caller professed on our voice mail over the weekend — or you're just looking for something to do on this holiday Monday and now have a hankering to check out the puzzle, we've supplied the correct "down" clues below, as well as the ones for "across."

As always, answers will appear in the next printed issue.
