Amcore Bank Is Bye-Bye

You've seen a few Amcore Bank branches around town.

Well, now they're Harris Bank branches.

The bigger news is bye bye Broadway Bank (aka Mob bank), owned by family of Illinois Treasurer and current US Senate candidate (and B+HO's basketball buddy) Alexi Giannoulias.
When running for Treasurer, he used his experience at Broadway as a qualification.
Today, he is using the bank failure as a qualification for running for US Senate. He says he understands what every small business owner goes through when they lose their business, and that'll make him a great Senator. Also, he wants to be on the Senate Banking Committee.

We have a Gregorian Chant Schola up here in Orkney! Just started up about two years ago. Very exciting. I'm a mamber but I've been out of the picture for almost a year because I was pregnant with twins - and recovering from the c-section. They are three months old now so I should be able to get back in play!
