Correction:

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:

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

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