Logic-wise, I can't make sense out of these:

Issue for one's partner = stepson.

Suggested love was on a decline = opined. Is love O and decline D? Where's pine?

Contemptuous of curls with new twist = scornful. An anag of curls and ONF. Where's the ONF from?

Twenty five hundred hit the target! = scored.

As ever, this is my local paper. Misprints are possible...

Many thanks.

suggested = opined.
o = love.
pined = a decline. If you pine you languish or waste away,etc. as in grief.
