This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 74, Blocks: 35 Missing: none – this is a pangram. This is the debut puzzle for Mr. Markey. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Jim Horne notes:

Cleverly disguised as a typical word-that-can-precede puzzle, this crossword has an extra gimmick. Down answers must JUMP over the circled letters to make sense.
