And there’s, the only thing that we had on our agenda tonight was to select a new attorney and to approve the retainer agreement that I emailed to all of you guys. You’ve seen it, I got no replies back, positive or negative. So I would entertain a motion from the floor to approve the retainer agreement and to accept Kevin Riley for the 2009 year.

Gerald Cartmell stated, you’ve probably got to have 2 motions.

Some one stated, yeah.

Gerald Cartmell stated, I don’t think that you can do them both together.

Do I have any motions from the commission?
