					                                    ANNOUNCEMENT

Read the following announcement and try to understand it!

     We are announcing today that we are bringing the California Milestone and
     evergreen brands even closer together. Effective as of December 5, 2008, our
     official name will be:
                                    Green Miles West
     The substitution of “West” in our name – replacing “California” – is the result of
     an agreement we reached with the California Gardening Association, following the
     protest over the original use of “California” in our name. We hope this does not
     create any confusion among our loyal consumers. While this represents a change
     from our initial name introduction, it does not change the quality of products we
     offer to our company.
