The Changing Face of Transportation
Memorial Day came and went very quickly! Since we didn't include it in the last newsletter, we would like to thank our Veterans, especially those that are members of our organization. We appreciate your service.
Since our last newsletter, we had the KYSITE Golf Outing which is summarized below. We hope the summer doesn't fly by as quickly as the past few weeks.
We have received some volunteers for help with upcoming newsletters; however, you are always welcome to send something to us. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime!

KYSITE Golf Outing a Success!!
Twenty-two golfers participated in the outing in perfect
weather (especially considering the high temperatures of the days preceding and following). The food from 3 Peas in a Pod Catering was excellent. Juniper Hills Golf Course was in the best shape it has ever been and they were very gracious to allow us a shot gun start considering our modest number of golfers. We had a few door prizes including a nice golf umbrella donated by Baldwin & Sours.
Special thanks to Tony Lewis for organizing the outing, Bill Seymour for leading the charge on the hole sponsorships, Stuart Sparks for getting the good looking signs donated by Lynn Imaging, and Brad Johnson for all the financial coordination, picking up the signs, and helping with registration despite the fact that he was not playing.
Also, thanks to our great hole sponsors who provided nearly $1300 towards the scholarship fund. The sponsors were: Qk4, BTM Engineering, Neel-Schaffer, Inc., EA Partners, ENTRAN, Gresham, Smith and Partners, Palmer Engineering, URS, Wilbur Smith Associates, PB, HDR Engineering, Inc., Baldwin & Sours, Inc., and WMB Inc.

Practicing Engineering Without a License!
Earlier this year, a Raleigh, North Carolina resident who
petitioned his local and state governments to add traffic
signals at two intersections was charged with "practicing
engineering without a license". To find out how this
happened and why he was charged, you can read the full article here.
Thanks to Bob Canfield with the Deep South Section of ITE for the article!
