Bank of Little Rock, a $66 million-asset institution in North Little Rock, Ark., has sued Mr. Hubbell and his wife, Suzanna, for falling behind on their second mortgage payments. By mid-December, the Hubbells allegedly owed $43,604-and the total grows by $11.95 each day they fail to pay, the suit said.

Frederick S. Wetzel 3d, attorney for the bank, said he filed suit in Pulaski County Circuit Court in Little Rock to try to force the couple to repay.

The site could be a big plus for the new thrift. New York State offers incentives to institutions that develop offices in areas deemed underserved by banks. The thrift's founders, along with community leaders, are trying to have the area of its planned headquarters so designated.

Buffalo Savings has promised to convert any space in the building that it does not need into an incubator for new businesses. …
