The Safe Money Is in Floyd

I was writing in my office yesterday afternoon when my ears perked up. Was that the Bank of Floyd president on NPR’s All Things Considered?!?

Yes.

Here’s the story link and teaser:

Amid Financial Turmoil, Small Banks Thrive
“Leon Moore, of the Bank of Floyd in Floyd, Va., says his bank hasn’t taken a federal loan in 10 years.”

I got cross-country calls from relatives who heard the report. First, my brother-in-law in Seattle. Then, my brother who lives in L.A. Our tiny town is a safe haven in more ways than one.
