Local bankruptcy filings are up again, marking the eighth month this year that filings were higher than the same time a year ago.

In September, 322 people filed for bankruptcy in Boone, Winnebago and Ogle counties, that's up about five percent from 2002.

Experts say increased credit card use could play a big role in bankruptcy filings.
