Shreveport-based Home Federal Bancorp Inc. of Louisiana reported third-quarter earnings dropped to $713,000, or 33 cents per share, compared to $939,000, or 35 cents per share, a year ago.

The decrease was mainly the result of a $327,000 drop in non-interest income and a $121,000 increase in non-interest expense, the company said. The company partially offset those results with a $54,000 increase in net interest income and a $123,000 decrease in income taxes.
