Now before I turn the call over to Ron, I would like to give a brief disclaimer. This conference call may contain forward-looking statements that reflect the Company’s current views with respect to future events and financial performance. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties. The words anticipate, optimistic, believe, estimate, expect, intend, and similar expressions that indicate future events and trends identify forward-looking statements. Actual future results may differ materially from those anticipated depending on a variety of factors, including but not limited to the continued availability of credit and the performance of capital markets, the performance of acquisitions, fluctuations in the costs of materials, fuel and labor, and the outcome of pending and future and litigation and environmental matters. I refer you to our discussion of these points in our most recent Form 10-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
