Carol Taylor, the chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, says the commission is called when an abandoned cemetery is discovered.  The process then begins of documenting the cemetery and protecting it from being exacavated or covered over by construction.  Even one grave, by law, constitutes a cemetery.  Carol relates the sad story of a mass grave recently discovered in Northeast Hunt County, near the site of the old community known as Muddig.

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.
