Update date: 3/2/98

I will be happy to keep updating this, if people will continue to send
me information. Don Lindemann would like to include some of this
information in the next coho journal, so please check your listing to see
if it's correct, and let me know if not, in the next two days.  (Bank and
appraiser information will NOT be published in the Journal).
