With nine branches and $366 million in assets, it's not often that FCNB Corp., the parent of Frederick County National Bank, gets characterized as a "banking conglomerate." But then, it's not often that towns like Frederick and Myersville find themselves in the thick of a hostile bank takeover.That, at least, is how HomeTown Bancorp Inc. views the situation. FCNB has applied to the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond for permission to raise its stake in HomeTown to 14.9 percent, from the 4.9 percent it already owns.
