Growing Pains: Public Discusses Bank Swap

It’s a good “problem” to have, if you want to call it a problem. You might want to call it opportunity. Luther’s First Bank & Trust is out of room for its employees and out of room for customers to park on Main Street. The bank is growing because Luther citizens are seeking more loans
