My local paper has a running crossword contest with ambiguous solutions.
I'm recruiting any interested parties in helping me solve these puzzles.

Here is the most recent example (puzzle, and solution):

There are always 1-2 freebies, while the remaining prompts have an either/or answer using the provided words.

New puzzles are published on Sundays, with solutions given on Saturdays. I have to submit by Wednesday or Thursday to get my entry submitted in time.

Solutions were published on Saturday. They cancelled the weekly contest, so there's that.
I had a lot of the same answers you did, we were both at least half wrong.
