The decrease in the quarter was primarily the result of  decreases of $15,000 in interest expense on deposits and $19,000 in interest expense on borrowings from the FHLB and $1.5 million in the provision for loan loss partially offset by decreases of $235,000 in interest income and $34,000 in non-interest income, and an increase of $859,000 in non-interest expense  and a decrease of $98,000 in income tax benefit.
