In an editorial earlier this week I stated that banks in Colony, Bronson and Chanute failed during the 1970s Savings and Loans crisis. Jeff McAdam, vice-president of the Colony branch of Garnett State Savings Bank, called Thursday afternoon to correct me and defend his bank’s reputation. He’s right. I confused Yates Center with Colony. It was the State Exchange Bank of Yates Center that failed 30 years ago. My apologies to the fine people of Colony’s bank.
