Hey there, time traveller!

For many years the Free Press has closed each December with a quiz testing our readers' knowlege of the news events of the previous twelve months.
This year we're going a different direction, introducing a crossword with the elements of a year-end news quiz (plus other Winnipeg references).
All names used in the puzzle are surnames, unless otherwise specified.
Once the crossword is completed, unscramble the circled letters for a two-word message from the Winnipeg Free Press.
If you're new to our online crossword (you can do one daily in our puzzles section), a few tips:
Readers who successfully unscrambled the circled letters in the puzzle to see the two-word message from the Free Press, were invited to enter a contest that closed at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 1.
The correct answer to the word scramble is: JOURNALISM MATTERS.
We received more than 300 correct entries. We have randomly selected one of the correct responses to receive a pair of tickets to watch the Winnipeg Jets play the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday, Jan. 13 in the Free Press private suite. We contacted the winner directly. (See contest fine print.)
Thanks for reading, and all the best in 2019 from the Winnipeg Free Press!
