The provision for loan losses increased to $700 thousand in the second quarter of 2009 compared with $180 thousand in the second quarter of 2008. The increase in the provision for loan losses reflects the credit risk associated with loan portfolio growth and an increase in net charge-offs.

Noninterest income decreased by approximately $1.5 million in the first six months of 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The primary reason for the decrease was a net securities loss of $2.9 million, offset by an increase in mortgage lending income of $1.7 million. The net loss on securities was attributable to other-than-temporary impairment charges of $4.8 million, offset by $1.9 million of gross gains on the sale of securities. Mortgage lending income typically fluctuates as mortgage interest rates change and is primarily attributable to increased volume in the origination and sale of new mortgage loans.
Noninterest expense was approximately $7.5 million in the first six months of 2009, including the impact of a $0.4 million special FDIC assessment. This assessment was in addition to the increase in the Companys recurring FDIC insurance premium that began in the first quarter of 2009. Primarily as a result of the FDIC assessments and salaries and benefits expense, noninterest expense for the first six months of 2009 increased 20% from approximately $6.3 million in the first six months of 2008. Salaries and benefits expense increased primarily due to commissions paid to our mortgage originators as a result of increased origination volume.
