Buchanan, Somersville and Delta Fair are all in west antioch, about only thing thriving in that part of town are people putting up plywood on closed businesses, laundromats and liquor stores. City has had six murders so far this year.

The importance of community banks is that they’re in the community, led by people in the community, who understand the community.
