Starting with safety. On the employee safety front, we continue to educate, equip and enforce our safety program with the finest workforce in the steel industry. For all of 2011, our safety performance results in terms of OSHA recordable injuries led the steel industry by a factor of 6x. And through the first half of 2012, our safety performance has actually improved by about 10%. These results are a credit to all of our employees, and I commend them for making safety their highest priority.During the quarter, AK Steel's Coshocton Works received a special award for safety from the state of Ohio for operating nearly 3 million man hours from February of 2008 through August of last year without a single lost-time injury. Also during the quarter, AK Tube's Walbridge, Ohio plant was honored for its astounding safety performance and received the 100% Award for Safety from Ohio for operating the entire year 2011 without any los-time injuries or illnesses. These are marvelous achievements, and I congratulate the men and women of Coshocton and AK Tube Walbridge. We will continue to do everything we can to ensure the safety of our employees and our contractors who work on our property each and every day.
