JEWELL – First State Bank opened its new location in Jewell on Monday. The 717 Main Street location is temporary until a new bank is built at the site of the former Jewell vet clinic.

Other employees at First State in Jewell are Dale Sigmund and Michelle Oskvig. Hours at the new bank are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
