Hello KYSITE! 


It's Memorial Day weekend -- that means it is summertime.  Grab your sunscreen (a very important item for your editor!), bathing suit/swim trunks, and flip flops and head to the pool.   Be safe!  And don't forget to remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.


Don't forget about signing up for golf and we'll see you on the course on June 5th!


Let us know if you need anything from KYSITE!

Lowering The Limit
By: Billy Garrison


The National Transportation Safety Board has recommended that the legal limit for intoxication be lowered from 0.08 to 0.05. NTSB believes that lowering the limit could save 1,000 lives per year. Opponents contend that lowering the limit would punish social drinkers who are being responsible. To read more click here.


Amazing Roads V
By: Anne Warnick
Up this week is #10 on the Weather Channel's 15 most amazing roads list. This week's road can be found on the edge of a cliff in Bolivia. All images and descriptions all come straight from
The World's 15 Most Amazing Roads
#10: North Yungas Road, Bolivia


Called "the world's most dangerous road" by the Inter American Development Bank in 1995, the North Yungas Road is described by locals a little more bluntly. Villagers here in the Bolivian Andes Mountains call it "El Camino de la Muerte," or "the Road of Death." Crosses and stone markers dot the infamously narrow single-lane road, whose tight hairpin turns and dizzying drop-offs stretch more than 40 miles between Bolivia's capital La Paz and the region known as the Yungas.


Between 200 and 300 people lose their lives every year here, plunging off the road and into the deep canyons of the Coroico River Valley, some stretches of which lie more than half a mile below. Visitors find out why especially when it's foggy and rainy, which turn the road's dirt and rocky surface into a mud-filled mess.
