There's a story in WAPO about small banks and how the serve their local communities. https://www.washingtonpost.com/busi...ail&utm_source=newsletter&wpisrc=nl_headlines I hope it can be accessed without a WAPO subscription. Union Bank here in Lincoln is my bank. I know several of the people in the story. Not only that, they know me. Well enough to call me by my preferred name (Lindy) even though all my legal paperwork for accounts, etc. lists my first name as Sophia (I also sometimes spell it Sofia) I have nothing but good to say about these folks. It's a real feel-good story. The comments following the story are especially telling. When I first opened my account there in the fall of 2011 the bank was really busy and the bank vice-president Jason Muhleisen was opening new accounts. And he still remembers me.
