Of the four loans totaling $679,000 identified as nonperforming loans during the second quarter of 2014, the largest loan of the group is a residential mortgage loan totaling $377,000, secured by property located in Shasta County. A specific reserve of $80,000 has been established for this loan. The remaining three loans identified as nonperforming loans in the second quarter of 2014 total $302,000. No charge-offs have been recorded against these loans and $144,000 in specific reserves have been established. 

Gross loan charge-offs for the second quarter of 2014 were $76,000 and recoveries totaled $30,000 resulting in net charge-offs of $46,000 compared to gross loan charge-offs for the second quarter of 2013 of $147,000 and recoveries of $23,000 resulting in net charge-offs of $124,000. Gross charge-offs for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $374,000 and recoveries totaled $85,000 resulting in net charge-offs of $289,000, compared to gross charge-offs for the six months ended June 30, 2013 of $1,203,000 and recoveries of $272,000 resulting in net charge-offs of $931,000.

The Company's OREO properties decreased $2,128,000 to $505,000 at June 30, 2014 from $2,633,000 at March 31, 2014. The decrease in OREO was due to the sale of one property totaling $2,169,000, and write-downs of certain other OREO properties totaling $68,000, partially offset by the transfer of one property to OREO totaling $109,000.
