SIKESTON - The reorganization of the Sikeston Chamber of Commerce put the annual City of Lights program in jeopardy, but the efforts of 10 committee members will keep holiday tour buses running.

Most citizens have participated to some extent.

SIKESTON - Members of the Sikeston Eagles Aerie have no problem living up to the organization's motto: People helping people.
