Carol Taylor, the chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, has been studying Depression-era federal building projects in Greenville and elsewhere in the county, and she discusses a project led by the Greenville Garden Club in the 1930s.  The club received a grant from the Public Works Administration to put "rip rap" -- rocks and boulders -- on the banks of the Town Branch Creek.

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.
