The syndicated comics that appeared in the Thursday edition of the Daily News were the same comics as those printed in the Wednesday edition due to a printing error. Additionally, the Celebrity Cipher’s answer and clue for the next puzzle were left out of the Thursday edition of the Daily News. We regret the error.

‘Once Upon a Prom’ starts Saturday

The county-wide prom dress shopping event, ‘Once Upon a Prom,’ runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church. This event is open to anyone in Decatur County who is looking to buy, sell or donate a prom dress. Dresses for sale must be clean and in good repair.

Dresses may be dropped off on either of the following dates:

9 a.m. to 3 p.m. - Saturday, Feb. 8

Dress prices are determined by the owner of the dress. All formal dresses are welcome, and in any style - short or long. An alteration specialist will be available on dates of sale to answer questions and offer services. Fitting room areas will also be available.

Any proceeds received from donated dresses will be divided equally among all three schools for after-prom events.

Shopping dates and times are as follows:

9 a.m. to 3 p.m. - Saturday, March 8
