Derek Price, the owner of downtown Commerce business Greenshoot Media, supports Chamber of Commercemanger Paul Voss' recent call for the enforcement of the building code on vacant downtown buildings, and the city's campaign of demolishing substandard houses.  But Derek says if the code was more strictly enforced on houses today, it might not be necessary to demolish them 10 years from now.  Derek, who is also represents Hunt County Public Art, says the dedication of the unique bois d'arc sculpture by David Zvanut in the Commerce City Park will be at 4 p.m., Wednesday, December 9.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
