Beginning with the Oct. 29, 1995, edition, the newsstand price of the Sunday Sun will increase from $1.58 ($1.50 + .08 Maryland sales tax) to $1.75 ($1.66 + .09 Maryland sales tax). The Sunday home delivery rate remains unchanged.
The increase in the Sunday Sun newsstand price is the first since 1990. It is necessary to offset continuing sharp increases in the cost of newsprint, our crucial raw material. In the third quarter of this year, for example, newsprint prices were 52 percent higher than for the same period last year.
