Doubtful that Capital will need extra staffing in place to meet the demand for these.

Memories, memories. My Mom (before she died) was a huge fan of CapFed. As I recall, the branch was on the left side of 95th Street, going west from Leawood. When I cleared out Mom's accounts after she died, I do recall CapFed was quite helpful. I'd give them a thumbs up.

As an editorial note, were I to ship funds out-of-state for a CD (which I hate), I'd pick Kansas. I grew up there.

One thing I always liked about Kansas was the folks were genetically incapable of being dishonest. Stupid, sure (look at Sam Brownback). And that idiot Chris Kobach (spelling unclear) who is the current Kansas Secretary of State, on some sort of voter fraud commission, and a total idiot.

But, in large, Jayhawks are honest and won't steal your money.
