This year’s failed-bank tally rose to 63 over the weekend, as state and federal regulators seized control of two more community-based lenders — Bank of Whitman in Colfax, Washington, and Bank of Shorewood in Illinois. Together, the two closings are expected to cost the FDIC $ 160 million. Though still elevated, the number of bank seizures has tapered off considerably from earlier in the crisis. At this time last year, the count of FDIC-insured institutional failures stood at 109 for the 2010 calendar year.
