The article on the Cotton Lane Bridge in Arizona looks fantastic. You guys did a wonderful job—thanks once again! Laura Craig, marketing specialist Michael Baker Jr. Inc. Phoenix, Ariz. Editor, QBS International is a structural engineering frm that designed the Forty Foot Pedestrian Bridge that was featured in your Spring issue. Our project manager, John Ruff, subscribes to your magazine and showed us his copy but we wanted to have our own copies and another subscription. Julie R. Gangi QBS International Inc. Pennsauken, N.J. Editor, In the Winter 2009 issue of ASPIRE™ there was an article about the bridge built across our dry canyon [see Custom Arches, page 18]. We would like to get extra copies of the magazine. A copy of the magazine was sent to us by the consultant from Portland (OBEC Consulting Engineers) that worked with the city in planning and building the bridge. Before that, our director, Chris Doty had not seen the publication. We were awarded the 2008 Portland Cement Association Bridge Design Award and want to use the magazine as part of the display of the award, to have at our city hall building, and to display at several other buildings that feature our city's accomplishments; and of course to archive in our fles. It took several years, lots of pa- perwork, meetings, patience, and persever- ance to accomplish this bridge of which we are all very proud. Thank you for your help. Becky Leslie Public Works Department City of Redmond, Ore. Editor, Per our conversation today, we would like to order 100 copies of the Spring 2009 issue for our 40th Street Task Force Committee members.
