Carol Taylor, the chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, is researching what may be a forgotten Hunt County town, Pompey.  Few records exist on the town, believed to have been located east of Greenville near what is now Interstate 30, but Carol has turned up intriguing hints of the town's existence.

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.
