INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT



Section 5 – Corporate Governance and Management


Item 5.02.

Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


On June 12, 2008, the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors amended the Company’s supplemental retirement program.  Participation in the Supplemental Retirement Plan (the “Current Plan”) was closed to new participants effective as of June 12.  The Current Plan provided for the automatic participation of executive officers and a basic retirement benefit equal to 50% of final average compensation after 10 years of executive service, but also provided for reduced benefits based on an officer’s attained age at date of hire.  Participants will continue to accrue benefits under the Current Plan.   


The Committee also adopted the 2008 Supplemental Retirement Plan (the “2008 Plan”) to provide supplemental retirement benefits in the future.  Unlike the Current Plan, participation, benefit levels, and vesting requirements under the 2008 Plan will be subject, in all cases, to the discretion of the Compensation Committee.  Participants in the Current Plan will not participate in the 2008 Plan.


Both plans are unfunded and provide for the same types of annuity or lump sum benefit payment options.  Each contains forfeiture provisions in the event a participant violates confidentiality or restrictive covenant provisions or incurs a termination of employment for cause, as defined in the plans.  


Section 8 – Other Events


Item 8.01.

Other Events

On June 12, 2008, the Board of Directors approved a $15 million investment to increase the efficiency of the Printing & Writing segment’s Brokaw, Wisconsin mill.  A news release describing the project is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.1.
