We, at the State Bank of Delphos and Ottawa County Bank, pride ourselves
on being community minded members of our respective communities. As we
continue to be successful, we intend to give back to our communities through
our volunteer services.
For over 20 years we have provided the OUR
CHECKING ACCOUNT program to USD #239 middle school/junior high
school. This has been a very well received learning experience for our
seventh and eighth graders. For many of them this is their first
experience with writing checks, making deposits, maintaining a check
register and reconciling their accounts. We hope that this develops
life long habits and aids them in becoming financially responsible adults.
This year the State Bank of Delphos and Ottawa County Bank will be
stepping up this education process with a web-based program produced by
EverFi. This is a digital learning platform for critical life skills
and will be required for all seniors at Minneapolis High School. (We
hope to offer this at Glasco High School also, but all of the necessary
arrangements have not been made at this time.)
This web-based program will provide learning modules for Saving, Banking,
Payments, Interest Rates and Credit Cards, Credit Score, Financing Higher
Education, Rent vs. Owning, Taxes and Insurance, Consumer Fraud and
The cost of this program is being wholly underwritten by the State Bank
of Delphos and the Ottawa County Bank. Again, our goal is to develop
young adults who once they leave high school and home will use their
finances and credit wisely. We feel credit is a very useful tool when
used responsibly and we want to provide these students with the necessary
tools to learn these important skills.

|I-5 bridge collapses into Wash. river, injuring 3
Updated May 24, 03:35 AM
MOUNT VERNON, Wash. - An Interstate 5 bridge over a river collapsed north of Seattle Thursday evening, dumping two vehicles into the water and sparking a rescue effort by boats and divers as three injured people were pulled from the chilly waterway.
"We don't think anyone else went into the water," said Marcus Deyerin, a spokesman for the Northwest Washington Incident Management Team.
A man and a woman were reported in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries in the emergency room at Skagit Valley Hospital, hospital spokeswoman Kari Ranten said.
