New Commerce Industry Will Boost Area Economy


The announcement of a new industry for Commerce, the KLZ Stone Group, will be a great economic boost to the area, Texas A&M University-Commerce economics professor Dr. Dale Funderburk says.  The company will build a 57,000-square foot facility in the city's industrial park on State Hwy. 11 east of town, and will eventually employ about 50 people.

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.
