Puzzle Notes

Hey there, all! As is our custom, we've got another easy mini cryptic for you -- by me this time -- in various versions, some of which offer different types of help (indicating the different sections of each clue, or indicating the type of wordplay). Next week we'll be back to our usual full-size offering with a puzzle by Stella. See you then!
