Audit Committee

              The Audit Committee oversees the fulfillment by management of its financial reporting and disclosure responsibilities and its maintenance of an appropriate internal control system. It assists Board oversight of the integrity of our financial statements, our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and our independent registered public accounting firm's qualifications and independence. The Audit Committee is responsible for the appointment, compensation, retention and oversight of the work of our independent registered public accounting firm, which reports directly to the Audit Committee. It oversees the activities of our internal audit function, which currently is provided under contract by Ernst & Young, LLP. The Audit Committee has a charter that specifies its responsibilities and the Audit Committee believes it fulfills its charter. All members of the Audit Committee are independent directors as defined under NYSE listing standards and SEC rules. All members of the Audit Committee are financially literate under the applicable NYSE listing standards. Our Board of Directors has determined that Harvey N. Medvin, Craig P. Omtvedt and Richard G. Sim are "audit committee financial experts" as defined under SEC rules.

              The Audit Committee met nine times during fiscal 2008. Our independent registered public accounting firm and internal auditors met with the Audit Committee with and without representatives of management present. See "Report of the Audit Committee" on page 12.
