Dr. Maher Tadros, University of Nebraska, Omaha, Neb. "I just finished reading the first edition of ASPIRE . [Your team has] put together a wonderful magazine. With the articles all centered [on] the concrete bridge world, it was impossible to put down the magazine until I had gone all the way through it. I can't say this about any other publication I receive. You have a real winner here. I noticed at least a couple of articles involving Wisconsin bridges. Thanks for including them. Overall, the articles covering design, construction and the AASHTO Spec. made for a well rounded presentation. Great work. I look forward to the next issue in a few months." Finn Hubbard, Wisconsin DOT, Madison, Wisc. "I just received and thumbed thru the first edition of ASPIRE —well done! Good articles, photos [and] content overall." Ian M.

American Society of Civil Engineers, Reston, Va. "Congratulations on a great first issue of ASPIRE . It just landed on my desk."

I really liked your article and it gave a very good overview of the situation. Thank you again." Brice Goebel, Hesston, Kan. "I enjoyed your inaugural issue of ASPIRE magazine.
