CSIFairSave a Booth for the Annual Community Fair at CSI
Greetings!

During the first week of classes the CSI Program Board offers free and fun activities, goodies, and networking opportunities for CSI students. One of those opportunities is the annual Community Fair. The Community Fair is a campus-wide event that takes place during the first week and is the best time for students to have fun, socialize, network, receive free stuff, and exposure to student life opportunities not only on our campus but in our community! It is only held in the Fall Semester and is a great opportunity for you to brag about your department or highlight student involvement or leadership opportunities through clubs and organizations you are involved in or tied to your department. It is also a business vendor fair; with the purpose of fostering a relationship between the College of Southern Idaho, Twin Falls and other surrounding communities. Businesses and community agencies who take part in the fair will have giveaways, information about their services, and be able to have a one-on-one interaction with students, faculty and staff to learn more about services that are in the Twin Falls community. We look forward to your participation in this event which will be held during the first week of classes on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m
Click here to fill out the application and then return it Jasmine Lopez ( jlopez@csi.edu) to make sure you are on our list of participants.

Community Fair Booth Benefits:
  • You will be able to connect and network with CSI students.
  • You will have an opportunity to network with local businesses.
  • You will be able to distribute information about your department/organization.
  • You will be able to see what other departments have going on around campus.
Booth Space:

Booth spaces are given a table and two chairs, unless noted otherwise, and a limited number of spots with electricity are available and will be decided on a first-come, first-served basis. The purpose of the Community Fair is to provide an environment where students can learn about the various vendors and organizations within the CSI and Twin Falls Community. To help entice people your way maybe a giveaway or sweet treat at your booth will help. (Make sure it falls within the colleges policies)

This event is sponsored by CSI's Program Board in the Office of Student Affairs. If you know of a business or non-CSI entity that is interested in taking part in this please let me know as their application is different.

Have a great day!

Wellbeing18New Wellbeing Publications Coming Your Way
The Wellbeing Program has sponsored the Vitality magazine and we have all elected to continue the subscription now for over 20 years. It has seen a few changes over time, but continues to offer great information on health and wellness news and trends as well as work and life best practices. For the first time last fall, WELCOA (Wellness Council of America) started to publish their own newsletter called Well Balanced that offers both competitive information and pricing. Starting with the August issue, the CSI Wellbeing Program is bringing this publication to your workplace for consideration. You will start seeing that in your building and department starting next week. Please take a look and tell us what you think. We love hearing from you!

Here's a sample from the August issue that just arrived:

TransitionMaking the Transition from Staff to Supervisor
Fred Pryor Seminars
Tuesday, September 18
Twin Falls, ID

Have you recently been promoted to a new position as a manager or supervisor?

Moving into a position of authority means meeting new challenges, taking on new responsibilities and mastering new skills. It also puts you in line for greater rewards at work - including positive recognition from peers and higher-ups, increased job satisfaction and better benefits. That's all well and good, but as a new supervisor, you may feel overwhelmed by all your new responsibilities, anxious about the transition and stressed out about moving from "coworker" to "boss."

You may worry about the way others will react to your new supervisor status ... have concerns about keeping up with a tougher workload ... and wonder how to handle the new tasks you will be faced with: hiring, disciplinary action, even firing.

A program to ease the transition ...

This new supervisor training was specifically designed to address the needs of anyone who is new to managing others. What you learn in this class will arm you with a powerful new set of skills, strategies and techniques for dealing with the issues you will encounter as you take on your new position and move forward in your career.

You will find out how to relate well to former peers who are now your subordinates, and you'll learn the communication skills that will help you handle these changing relationships in a way that's comfortable for everyone. You'll discover secrets for motivating and encouraging people to do their "personal best" for you, and find out how to discipline firmly and fairly, without creating resentment. This supervisory training will not only show you how to positively influence the behavior of your employees, but also reveal ways to handle negative forces such as gossip, rumors and poor attitudes.

In this workshop you'll learn:

1. How to communicate more effectively as a new supervisor
2. When to be flexible, and when to stand firm
3. Five steps for building trust and gaining respect
4. How to develop your own personal management style
5. Strategies for motivating others to achieve results
6. The truth about discipline - how to handle uncomfortable situations
7. What every new supervisor and manager should know about hiring and firing
8. Time management skills that really work
9. And much, much more!

SCentralHealthHealth Advisory from South Central Public Health

July 27, 2018
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Brianna Bodily, Public Information Officer (208) 737-5985

Health Advisory Issued For Mormon Reservoir and Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir Because of Harmful Algal Bloom

TWIN FALLS COUNTY, CAMAS COUNTY- The South Central Public Health District (SCPHD) and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) are issuing a public health advisory today for both Mormon Reservoir and Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir. The DEQ said results from water testing on July 23rd show levels of a micro-toxin, Microcystin, are now at unhealthy levels because of a recent harmful algal bloom (HAB) in both reservoirs.

The public is advised to take the following precautions:
  • avoid exposure to water in reservoirs experiencing a HAB. 
  • Take extra care that children, pets, and livestock are not exposed to the water.
  • Do not consume water with a blue-green algae bloom. Neither boiling nor disinfecting removes blue-green algae toxins from water.
  • If fish have been exposed to a blue-green algae bloom only consume the fillet portion (remove the fat, organs, and skin). Wash hands after handling. The risk associated with consuming fish caught in waters with a blue-green algae bloom is unknown.
SCPHD Public Health Program Manager Josh Jensen said, "Children and pets are particularly susceptible. Exposure to the toxins produced by cyanobacterial HABs may result in life-threatening liver damage, neurological problems such as muscle spasms, decreased movement, labored breathing, convulsions, and possible death." DEQ will continue to monitor water quality until the bloom dissipates and will advise the public when the concern no longer exists. "We rely heavily on the public to report suspicious looking water bodies to us and we respond by investigating the water body," said Kiley Mulholland, DEQ Regional Water Quality Manager. "The BloomWatch (hyperlink with: https://cyanos.org/bloomwatch/) app (available for IOS and Android) is a great tool that anyone can use to report the location of a potential bloom, take photos that we can use as a screening tool, and upload the data and photos to a citizen science database that emails DEQ with an alert."

More information is available at https://phd5.idaho.gov/AlgalBlooms/index.htm and https://www.deq.idaho.gov/water-quality/surface-water/recreation-health-advisories/
