     ITEM 5.  Other Events

     On December 6, 2002, the United States District Court for the District of
Alaska reduced the punitive damages awarded in connection with the 1989 Exxon
Valdez accident from $5 billion to $4 billion. The United States Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit last year vacated the original punitive damage
award entered by the District Court after trial in 1996 as being excessive
under the Constitution and remanded the case to the District Court for it to
determine the amount of the punitive damage award consistent with the Ninth
Circuit's holding. The Corporation intends to appeal the District Court's
latest decision.



     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
