WORDY WEDNESDAY #230
PENT WORDS 46
In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.

1 Actress Anderson of Baywatch / Bandleader Roger Wolfe ____

7 Brother of Luke and Andrew Wilson / Russell of chocolate fame
8 Vigorous / Golfing needs
9 From ____ to stern / Womb
10 Space for playing tennis / Use up
