                    Common Stock
                    ------------
    
    Payable                           June 1, 2010

The dividend equates to $1.00 per share, a five cent or approximately five percent increase, on an annualized basis.  The Company has paid quarterly dividends continuously since going public in 1956, and has raised its dividend in each of the past four years.  Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Shaw noted, "Improved cash flows, a decrease in capital expenditures, and sensible cost controls have all combined to strengthen our financial position, despite the current economic downturn.  Dividend increases are necessary to facilitate competitive and reasonable returns for our shareholders."
