Net interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $30.3 million, a decrease of $590 thousand or 1.9% from the prior quarter and a decrease of $2.6 million or 8.0% from the same quarter last year. The decreases were primarily the result of the lower net interest margin, combined with a decrease in average earning assets. The decreases in average earning assets were primarily the result of a decline in loan balances due to lower loan demand from creditworthy borrowers and loan charge-offs, as well as using cash flow from investment securities to paydown borrowings.Provision for loan losses
