pay, and continued health and dental coverage through May 28, 1999 (at my
normal contribution rate), which I agree is sufficient consideration and is
in excess of anything of value to which I am otherwise entitled, including
any earned wages or benefits due and owing me, I release, waive, and fully
discharge the Company and all present and former employees, officers,
directors, shareholders, and agents of the Company, from any and all charges,
causes of action, damages, claims or demands, whether known or unknown at
this time, arising out of, connected with, or based on my employment and
separation from employment with the Company, including, but not limited to,
those based on contract, personal injury, tort, common law, employment
discrimination, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (as amended)
("ADEA") and any and all other federal, state or local laws or ordinances.

           2. Non-Release of Future Claims. This Agreement does not waive or
release any rights or claims that I may have under the ADEA which arise after
the date I sign this Agreement.

           3. 21 Day Period for Review and Consideration of Agreement. I

have been advised in writing to consult with an attorney before signing this
Agreement.

           5. Employee's Right to Revoke Agreement. I may revoke this
Agreement for a period of seven (7) calendar days after signing it. This
Agreement is not effective or enforceable until this revocation period has
expired. I understand that any revocation to be effective must be in writing
and either: (1) post-marked within seven (7) days of execution of this

requested, is recommended to show proof of mailing. If I revoke this

           6. Entire Agreement. I agree no oral or written statement have
been made by the Company which vary the terms of this Agreement and that this
constitutes the entire Agreement between myself and the Company.
