Changes and comments from surferdude808:

As anticipated, the OCC released its recent actions this week, which contributed to several change to the Unofficial Problem Bank List. In all, there were seven removals and three additions that leave the list at 801 institutions with assets of $295.6 billion. A year ago, the list held 952 institutions with assets of $379.1 billion.

Actions were terminated against Winona National Bank, Winona, MN ($258 million); Amfirst Bank, National Association, McCook, NE ($237 million); The First National Bank of Wahoo, Wahoo, NE ($206 million); The University National Bank of Lawrence, Lawrence, KS ($71 million); and The First National Bank of Germantown, Germantown, OH ($52 million). The other removals were Pacific International Bank, Seattle, WA ($182 million) and Borrego Springs Bank, National Association, La Mesa, CA ($142 million), which merged on an unassisted basis.

The additions this week were Illinois-Service Federal Savings and Loan Association, Chicago, IL ($136 million); Home Federal Savings and Loan Association of Collinsville, Collinsville, IL ($97 million); and Community Savings, Caldwell, OH ($77 million).

Next week will likely be quiet one for the list.
