Union Bankshares Announces Third Quarter and Year To DateEarnings and Quarterly Dividend PaymentMorrisville, VT October 15, 2008 – Union Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ – UNB) has announced net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2008 was $1.17 million or $0.26 per share compared to $1.42 million or $0.32 per share for the same period in 2007. Net Income year to date was $3.76 million or $0.84 per share for 2008 compared to $4.14 million or $0.92 per share for 2007.Third quarter earnings were adversely affected by the mark-to-market accounting requirement to write down to estimated fair value, through the income statement, investment securities deemed other than temporarily impaired. The Company’s management determined that approximately $512 thousand ($338 thousand after tax and 7.5 cents per share) of other-than-temporary impairments will be recognized in the third quarter of 2008 related to fixed maturity bonds of American General Finance (an AIG subsidiary) and Lehman Brothers Holdings. The Company did not own any Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac common or preferred stock and did not engage in any sub prime mortgage lending or investing.The Company remains well capitalized as defined under regulatory capital guidelines for financial institutions and bank holding companies.Loan demand has remained strong with total loans growing to $343.3 million as of September 30, 2008 from $315.5 million, an increase of 8.8%, from the same time last year. The drop in the Prime Rate from the first eight and a half months of 2007 at 8.25% to 5% as of September 30, 2008 and the impact on variable rate loans has more than offset the increase in loan income due to volume growth. Loan growth has been partially supported by the growth in deposits of approximately $15.2 million or 4.6% between years and the increase in advances taken to match fund certain loans via a credit facility with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston. Net interest income for the quarter is down $197 thousand as loan rates have dropped more quickly than rates on deposits and borrowings.The provision for possible loan losses of $45 thousand for the quarter was down from the 2007 third quarter provision of $190 thousand. The provision was higher in 2007 mainly because of charge-offs in the third quarter of 2007. There was also an increase in municipal loan volume during the third quarter of 2008 which historically have had no losses and are therefore at a low risk reserve factor.A quarterly cash dividend of $.28 per share was declared on October 15, 2008 to shareholders of record October 27, 2008, payable November 7, 2008.Union Bankshares, Inc., with headquarters in Morrisville, Vermont is the bank holding company parent of Union Bank, which offers deposit, loan, trust and commercial banking services throughout northern Vermont and in northwestern New Hampshire. As of September 30, 2008, the Company had approximately $423 million in consolidated assets. The Company operates 14 banking offices and 30 ATM facilities in Vermont, a branch and ATM in Littleton, New Hampshire. Our two newest branches, one in Danville, Vermont opened in July 2008 and a full service branch in St. Albans, Vermont opened October 2, 2008.Statements made in this press release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandLOS ANGELES — The streak didn’t go quietly. But it did go.No team in the NBA has started as well as the Lakers, but a seven-game win streak came to an end Sunday, beaten out by the long strides of Pascal Siakam as he cruised to clinching back-to-back buckets in transition with less than two minutes left.The eventual 113-104 defeat at Staples Center had fire from the Lakers (7-2), but not enough substance.The No. 1 defense in the NBA held the Raptors (7-2) to a pedestrian shooting night, but couldn’t beat their fast break, as young legs led Toronto to a 32-8 advantage in transition scoring. LeBron James did many things in his fourth triple-double in five games (13 points, 15 assists, 13 rebounds), but he struggled to find his shot when the Lakers needed it. Anthony Davis led his team with 27 points and made a number of impressive stops with four blocks, but lacked offensive impact in the crunchtime minutes.

But Sunday’s game against the banged-up defending champions wasn’t quite up to that standard.“They’re the best fast break team in the league,” Frank Vogel said. “We knew that coming in. We knew we had to execute offensively, and when we didn’t, there was gonna be a runout we couldn’t recover from. We’ve been showing great effort in transition defense, getting back in sprints and recovering on plays, but that wasn’t always there for us tonight, and it cost us.”It was the first Lakers loss since opening night against a Clippers team featuring Kawhi Leonard, the biggest star from last year’s Toronto squad. Even without him, the Raptors were formidable.The Raptors were notably without Kyle Lowry (hand fracture) and Serge Ibaka (sprained ankle), with coach Nick Nurse gritting his teeth pregame about going into the game without two of the stalwarts of last season’s championship team. But Toronto’s depth — another key to its success last year — was well on display.Fred VanVleet expertly dissected the No. 1-rated defense in the league with a combination of outside shooting (4 for 9) and savvy passing with 10 assists. Siakam had an inefficient shooting night (9 for 25) but still managed 24 points. And Chris Boucher, who had only played more than five minutes in one other game this season, was a match-up nightmare, totaling 15 points and three blocks as the Lakers struggled to keep up with the rangy forward. Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions It was the Raptors bench that keyed a 19-8 run to start the fourth quarter, taking a significant lead for the first time in the game after hanging close for most of the night. The Lakers, whose win streak has been defined by winning close games, couldn’t muster the stops necessary to keep their visitors at bay.“They were shorthanded, but they still got championship DNA players,” James said. “We didn’t take that lightly. And the guys that came in gave them a good boost.”On one of the final meaningful possessions, James missed a pair of looks at the rim, the second of which was blocked immediately into a transition scoring run for Toronto. The next possession featured what the Lakers thought was a foul on Kyle Kuzma, but the refs didn’t whistle on the play, and Terrence Davis scored a back-breaking three to put the Raptors up by 12 with just under four minutes to go.Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs A late rally seemed to be brewing when Kuzma, who has struggled shooting this season, hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the Lakers within six. James made a pair of free throws to close the gap to 104-100.But the next possessions were not kind: Davis airballed a 3-pointer, and Kuzma missed two more — leading to Siakam scores on the fast break.A subplot of the early season was ruffled: Anthony Davis rose for a block and came down grabbing his right shoulder, which he jammed two weeks ago against Charlotte. Frank Vogel said Davis was examined by the Lakers medical team who deemed he could continue to play.Davis acknowledged afterward that he’s still feeling discomfort in his shoulder. He was getting heat treatment on the bench to warm it up between stints.“It’s really never a play I don’t feel it, but I’m gonna go out there and play,” he said. “Try not to let it affect my game, and just play through it.”Entering the evening in the bottom five of the league in 3-point shooting, the Lakers got a boost from their outside threats initially. Troy Daniels had all of his 11 points in the third quarter, with three 3-pointers.A notable exception was Danny Green, who struggled on offense against his former team and went just 0 for 4 from the field.Vogel said the Lakers would continue their process the next day as they have after the previous seven games. For the team, nothing changes after either a win or a loss, they said.“We want to win basketball games, but I don’t think anything gets lost with us,” James said. “We’re not a complacent team.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error read more
Deshaun Watson over/under 250.5 passing yards Watson has thrown for 250 yards or more eight times this season, and he will be facing one of the best defenses in the league in Buffalo. The Bills have one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL in Tre’Davious White, and linebacker Terrell Edmunds is already one of the league’s best despite being 22 years old. Houston’s star quarterback has not faced many top defenses this year, but he did have an excellent outing in leading the Texans past the New England Patriots in early December. However, he only threw for 234 yards in that game, and he only managed to throw for 169 yards against the other top defense he faced in Baltimore. The Texans’ receiving corps is banged up too with Kenny Stills and Will Fuller nursing injuries ahead of Saturday’s game, so the under is the play here. Josh Allen over/under 216.5 passing yardsAllen is the least accurate quarterback in the playoffs. He threw for over 3,000 yards, but he completed just 58.8 percent of his passes on the year. The second-year quarterback from Wyoming has a cannon for an arm, yet his longest completion all season was 53 yards, and that was on a busted coverage against New England two weeks ago.John Brown and Cole Beasley were both fine offseason acquisitions, but those are the only two players that Allen targets with any regularity. The next leading receiver on the team is tight end Dawson Knox with 388 yards and two touchdowns, so Houston knows what to expect from Allen. Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel has essentially had two weeks to prepare for this offense, so the under is the better play. MORE: Full betting preview for Bills vs. TexansCarlos Hyde over/under 64.5 rushing yardsThis was the first year that Hyde ran for over 1,000 yards in a season, and Houston loves to lean on the bruising running back. However, his production tailed off at the end of the season, and he ran for under 30 yards in four of the Texans’ last five games. Buffalo is allowing 4.2 YPC this year despite having an excellent defense, so Hyde has the potential to surpass this total, but it’s unlikely given his recent form and the play of Houston’s offensive line down the stretch. The Houston Texans are short favorites per the NFL betting odds against the Buffalo Bills this week, and they will attempt to make it out of the Wild Card Round for just the fourth time in their short history. Houston has never had a first-round bye, but the Texans are no strangers to Wild Card Weekend, playing in the first round of the playoffs for the sixth time this decade on Saturday. Meanwhile, Buffalo is hoping to end one of the NFL’s longest postseason victory droughts, as it’s been 25 years since the Bills last won a playoff game. There are other betting options for this game besides simply picking a winner or betting a total though, so let’s look at some other plays. MORE: Get the latest NFL odds & betting trends at Sports Insider Josh Allen over/under 33.5 rushing yardsThe over here is one of the best props on the board. Allen is averaging 4.7 YPC, and he will be unleashed in the playoffs. He is the second-best running quarterback in the postseason, and Houston has not had much success stopping the run. The Texans are conceding 4.8 YPC this year, and it’s unlikely that J.J. Watt will do much to slow down this ground game. He is returning from a torn pectoral muscle earlier than expected, so he will be at much less than 100 percent.Don’t be surprised if Allen totes the ball more than Devin Singletary or Frank Gore. He has surprising speed for a quarterback his size, and he can bowl over smaller defenders.Dawson Knox Over/Under 24.5 Receiving YardsBuffalo doesn’t prioritize getting the ball to its tight ends like other teams in the league, but Sean McDermott will likely ask Allen to target Knox four or five times on Saturday afternoon. Houston has allowed tight ends to catch 70 passes for 829 yards and six touchdowns this season, and Knox can use his frame to exploit mismatches in the back seven. read more
