VFW to have comedy, spaghetti night

February 14, 2008

De Soto V.F.W. Post 6654, 84th and Penner Avenue, will have a comedy night and all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the post.

Conrad Courtney will provide the evening's comedy. The dinner will include salad, bread and dessert. Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the banquet hall kitchen renovation project.

Tickets are $12.50 per person and can be ordered at (913) 535-4700.

Newspaper rates

increasing

The De Soto Explorer increased its subscription rates effective Jan. 10, Christopher J. Bell, the newspaper's circulation manager said.

The yearly rate for a subscription will increase to $37 plus tax per year in Johnson, Douglas, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties. Elsewhere in Kansas will increase to $55 plus tax per year. Outside the state of Kansas, subscription prices will increase to $60 per year.

The increase is the first since 2002.

The rate increase will take effect upon a customer's renewal date.

"The subscription increase is needed for us to keep pace with the rising cost of postage, newsprint, ink and fuel prices," Bell said.
