Commerce ISD Superintendent Charlie Alderman says the recent COVID-19 surge has caused a shortage of bus drivers. The Commerce ISD is asking parents to bring their children to school and pick them up in the afternoon until further notice. Buses will continue to transport anyone who needs transportation, but parents and students should expect service delays.

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.
