americanbanker.com — Banks are ramping up public relations efforts to calm consumers panicked by the credit crisis - and to distinguish themselves from the string of big-name institutions that have gone out of business.

"And we will continue to operate our company as we have for five decades - as a community bank committed to serving the communities we serve with financial resources that help them grow."
