Community Investors Bancorp, Inc. Reports Net Earnings for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2007

    BUCYRUS, Ohio, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Community Investors
 Bancorp, Inc. (Pink Sheets:   CIBN), parent company of First Federal
 Community Bank of Bucyrus, reported net earnings of $162,000, or $.18 per
 basic share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, representing an
 increase of $18,000, or 12.5%, compared to the net earnings of $144,000, or
 $.17 per basic share, reported in the 2006 quarter. The increase in 2007
 earnings reflects a $55,000, or 5.7%, increase in net interest income
 coupled with a reduction in provision for loan loss of $20,000. This was
 partially offset by a $26,000, or 3.0% increase in general, administrative
 and other expense, as well as a decrease of $22,000 or, 14.8% in other
 income. The reduction in other income reflects the recognition of losses on
 foreclosed real estate and other repossessed collateral. General,
 administrative and other expense primarily reflects increased costs related
 to the costs of our conversion to a new core processing system during
 August, as well as increased personnel and other costs related to
 preparation for the opening of our Marysville branch. These increases were
 partially offset by reductions in core processing monthly costs. The
 Marysville branch will open in November, as the Company expands its
 geographic reach. At the same time, we will continue to search for new
 opportunities to serve its customers and shareholders, while looking for
 opportunities to increase our efficiency.
     Community Investors Bancorp, Inc. reported total assets at September
 30, 2007, of $141.5 million, total liabilities of $130.8 million, including
 total deposits of $88.0 million and total stockholders' equity of $10.7
