Community Seeds, Facebook

Bert Cooper, director of Community Seeds of Lone Oak, says the faith-based organization has purchased a 30-acre ranch near Lake Tawakoni where it will operate a rehabilitation program for homeless men modeled after the Denton Freedom House.  Community Seeds hopes to open the facility early in 2020.  The organization holds its annual Christmas fund-raising dinner at 6 p.m. Thursday at the National Guard Armory on West Lee Street in Greenville.

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.
