Remi, you're right up to the last word. It should end in a state abbreviation as well. This state is pretty close to you.

I had all but "debut" - thanks for the hint.

Two questions:

Why no hints for #5?

For #8 you have "ignite, sink, ignite". Which is the correct position for "ignite?"

Jema, I just wanted to make sure that you saw "ignite" so I doubled it up. lol The clues are generally just put in alphabetical order with no reference to how they should appear in the answers.

Joan, good solve without a hint. bravo
