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, volatility in employment levels and general economic conditions; the continued availability of credit; the performance of acquisitions; fluctuations in the cost of materials, fuel, and labor; and the outcome of pending and future litigation and environmental matters. I refer you to our discussion of these points in our most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
