Among the closed institutions were: $448 million Bank of Miami in Coral Gables, Fla.; $244 million Chestatee State Bank, Dawsonville, Ga.; $242 million United Americas Bank in Atlanta; $192 million First Southern Bank, Batesville, Ark.; $68 million Appalachian Community Bank FSB, McCaysville, Ga.; and, $32million Community National Bank in Lino Lakes, Minn.
