SIKESTON - Joel Montgomery Sr. stepped to the podium in the city council chambers Friday and a smile broke across his face. He was happy to help his community. "Every community you live in, you should love it," Montgomery said. "I love Sikeston and the board members of First National Bank love it too. We wouldn't be here if we hadn't had community support." And with that, Montgomery, chairman emeritus of First National, handed over an agreement to Mayor Terry Bryant which allows for the transfer of the First National Bank building at 210 S. Kingshighway to the City of Sikeston. The building was donated specifically for the city's new public library facility. "We feel the city is due for this and we gladly hand over the agreement," Montgomery said.
