Ah, what would be a weekend start without a few more bank failures. This week's closures, along with their costs to the FDIC deposit insurance fund are:
- High Desert State Bank, Albuquerque, New Mexico $20.9 million
- First National Bank Savannah, Georgia - $68.9 million
- Peninsula Bank, Englewood, Florida - $194.8 million
Last year's tally was 140. This years total bank failures are expected to top 2009.
