Split doesn’t satisfy Wildcats
April 26, 2007
It wasn’t all together a bad day — heck, De Soto even won a game and held its share of the Frontier League lead.

April 26, 2007
The city of De Soto celebrated the completion of its new $9 million wastewater plant last Thursday with a ribbon cutting and open house at the new facility in the West Bottoms.
