The first business matter, proposal one, is the election of four class one directors. The board nominees are myself, R. A. Edwards III, Sandra Lawrence and Michael Morrissey. Information about each director is contained in the proxy statement that each of you would’ve received. Our company’s articles of incorporation allow shareholders to make nominations from the floor at the annual meeting, provided prior written notice is made to our corporate secretary. No such notice was received, therefore there being no other nominations I declare that the nominations are closed. The board has recommended that you vote for all four of the nominees.The next matter, proposal two, is an advisory vote on executive compensation. It was described again in the proxy statement, and the board has also recommended that you vote for this proposal.
