The Changing Face of Transportation
Say Hello to June!
The image to your right is the character "June" from the popular pre-school program "The Little Einsteins". As a parent of two children 5 years old and younger, I have heard the theme song of this show way too many times. And contrary to my mother-in-law's belief, I'm not convinced my boys will be much smarter because they watched a show with the word "Einstein" in it. [Editor's Note: Sorry for the rant.]

KYSITE Golf Outing: Initial Recap
Wednesday was the 2012 KYSITE Golf Outing and once again, it was a great success. The weather was absoluetly beautiful and I hope you were thinking of us while we were having fun. You should be very proud of your editor and President as their team came in 4th place. I'll leave it up to you to figure out how many teams we had.
We'll have the financial report in two weeks, but the outing should be a great contributor to the KYSITE scholarship fund.
Thanks to Stuart Sparks for his hard work in putting this together. And thanks to our participants and hole sponsors!!
Changes in Communication
A couple of changes we wanted to pass along.
First, the not-so-good-news for you newsletter fanatics (you know who you are): We are losing one of our contributors, Rebecca Franke, to graduate school. Rebecca has done a great job with the member profiles over the last year or so. We thank her for her services to KYSITE and and wish her the best of luck at her new school in Wyoming.
Second, we are working on a new KYSITE website. It may take a few weeks (or even months) to get it up and running. But it will be much more modern and more interactive. We hope you will enjoy it.
If you have interest in helping out in anyway, even if it's a very light committment to help out, please let Scott know.
SDITE / GLDITE 2012: Presentations
We continue to add more presentations to our website from the recent District ITE meeting. We only have two left to get our hands on.
Please note that these presentations ultimately will find a final home on the SDITE website once we have time to fully archive the meeting.
Quiz: Can You Name these Signs?
So you think you're an expert Traffic/Transportation Engineer or Planner? Let's put that to the test. See if you can get the correct answers to these signs found at this link.
And, for fun, let us know how many you got right. Leaving your name is optional. Results provided in two weeks.
Most Dangerous States To Drive.
By: Billy Garrison (GRW)
While Kentucky wasn't rated as the most dangerous state to drive in, it is toward the top of the list. This article mentions the lack of a motorcycle helmet law and the child restraint laws as two factors. To read more, click here.
