SIKESTON -- In just one week, Sikeston resident Lloyd Smith will begin his first new job in 28 years, as head of Missouri's Republican party.

Jo Ann Emerson and served a total 28 years with her and her late husband, U.S. Rep. Bill Emerson. "But at this point in my career, I'm reminded as much about where I've been as where I'm going."
