   Jonesboro and Northeast Arkansas are a hot-bed for banking. That's why Northeast Arkansas Business Today has made banking it's cover story this week.

   "Overall, times are good." Says Worsham.

   That's the view from his second floor office at the Regions Bank building. A what about that? with the new Liberty Bank and American State Bank in the same neighborhood, is there a little "keeping up with the Jones'" going on?   Worsham admits, a little bit. But overall he beleives it shows prosperity and compeitition.

   "Jonesboro is the most competitive area that regions deals in and we're in 15 states. That speaks well. It's good for the consumer."
