Faculty Excellence Award for Academic Faculty

Congratulations to Kim Prestwich for receiving the Faculty Excellence Award for Academic Faculty! Kim has been with the College of Southern Idaho for 20+ years and has held many roles during that time. It has been the art of teaching that has given her the opportunity to grow as an educator and as a person. She continually overhauls her courses to fit the changing needs and preferences of students in today's quickly changing environment. She focuses on critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, problem solving, understanding connections, embracing ambiguity and global competency - all traits that are universally desired by employers.

Her students said she, "made class a very fun and safe environment to dig deeper into who they were as individuals and what brings joy and meaning to their lives." She made the, "class go beyond a few credits and made it become a part of our lives."

Faculty Excellence Award for Career-Technical Faculty  

Congratulations to Candace Boesiger for receiving the Faculty Excellence Award for Career-Technical Faculty! Candace loves students and she has learned that the longer she teaches the more she realizes that there is so much more learning that can take place if she looks past the problems and questions at the end of each chapter. She now adds multiple projects to accompany the basic work thereby assisting her students in learning real-world challenges and solutions. She engages at CSI in projects outside her classroom by participating and presenting at conferences and working on a committee with other professors on campus to bring Inclusive Access textbooks to campus in the near future. 

Her students said they were, "incredibly grateful," that Candace came into their life at the end of a very tough journey and that, "through her encouragement and guidance," the class felt, "ready for tomorrow's challenges and opportunities".

AARPAARP: Three Steps to Dig Out of Debt
Ingrid Case, May 2019 AARP Bulletin

Note: Our VALIC seminar on Cash Management in March touched on these points. See the full article online at the link below:

1. Stop the bleeding
2. Start a paydown plan
3. Work on the rest

Step 1

Start with the obvious: You can't lower debt if you keep adding to it. So don't let your debts increase any further. One proven tactic is putting your credit cards on ice -literally.

Take any cards out of your wallet or purse, put them in a cup of water and stick them in the freezer. The hassle of pulling out this block of ice later on, and thawing it, can help put the brakes on using plastic for an impulse purchase.

Do a lot of online shopping? Visit your go-to sites and delete any credit card or other payment method on file. (No more one-click ordering!) Don't commit to taking on a larger debt, like a car payment, until you have remedied your situation.

Next, look at your finances to see how much money is going out each month and how much is coming in. To do that, sit down with a pad of paper or a blank document on your computer to tally it all up.

MusicFestRegistration Closes May 24 for CSI Music Fest
The College of Southern Idaho is now accepting registrations for this summer's Music Fest, which runs June 10 - 14, 2019, at the CSI Fine Arts Center. This week-long summer camp on the beautiful campus provides opportunities for students of all levels to be immersed in music making.

The daily schedule includes seven hours of hands-on instruction laid out to thoroughly engage students from beginning to end. Exceptional faculty from across the state work closely with you in small and large ensemble settings, as well as in daily master classes and sectionals. The listening lab brings the theory and history of music to life. Each afternoon, students have the chance to shine alongside their faculty mentors at the camp's performance spotlight. A focused study is available in strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, piano, jazz, and voice and private lessons and a wide range of elective areas are available to round out the camp experience.

The week's learning culminates with student recitals and a Gala concert for friends, family, and community to enjoy. CSI Music Fest promises to be an unforgettable experience where students build life-long friendships through the power of music making.

Tuition for Music Fest is  $250, and must be paid in full by May 24. This fee covers all program costs for students, including instructional materials. Other optional items such as photos and private lessons are available for an additional cost. A limited number of needs-based scholarships are available.

ArtCampCSI High School Art Intensive Summer Camp
Registration is open for "CSI High School Art Intensive", which runs from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. June 3 - 7. The class will meet in Art Complex 123 on the CSI campus. The registration fee is $225.

The CSI High School Art Intensive is a weeklong introduction to the 2D arts at the College of Southern Idaho. This Camp is designed for students entering grades 9-12 who are interested in Fine Arts and what CSI has to offer potential students. Over the course of a week, students will be introduced to a sampling of all that the photographic medium has to offer. This Camp will include digital, darkroom and alternative photographic processes. Students in this Art Intensive Camp will also learn about the "cultural language" within visual art. Understanding this language will help you create more thoughtful work, but also connect you with other artists and their agendas across all the fine art mediums. We will photograph in some fashion the rest of our lives, so let's get together and do it better! If you are interested in this creative outlet over the summer, this Intensive is a perfect way of discovering self-expression and what a photograph can be! A cell phone, walking shoes, notebook and pen is all that's required for the Camp. If you'd rather use your point & shoot or DSLR camera, please feel free!

Camp Director Ben Lustig holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photographic Mediums from East Carolina University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communication from the University of South Dakota. He taught at East Carolina University and Pitt Community College in Greenville, North Carolina before coming to CSI to teach in the Visual Arts Department. He teaches all digital and darkroom photography sections, but also the Appreciation and History of Photography courses. Ben also lectures on photography while maintaining a studio practice focusing on the photographic mediums and the idea of landscape.

Students can register or learn more about this and other classes at csi.edu/communityed, by going to the CSI Community Education Center, or by calling (208) 732-6442. Class size is limited so early registration is suggested.

SCPHDHealth District Investigating Group Exposed to Measles While Traveling out of State

May 9, 2019

PRESS RELEASE - For Immediate Release

Health District Investigating Group Exposed To Measles While Traveling Out of State

(GOODING COUNTY) South Central Public Health District (SCPHD) is investigating nearly 50 people exposed to the measles virus while traveling in Seattle, Washington in April. A team of nurses and epidemiologists inspected all of those patients today and confirmed that currently none of the patients are showing symptoms for the disease.

"The best way to protect yourself and your family against measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases is by immunization," Cheryle Becker, SCPHD Public Health Division Administrator. "By the time you start showing symptoms it is too late to vaccinate. That's why we urge families to immunize before an outbreak hits their community."

SCPHD will continue to monitor the group for symptoms until May 18th to ensure they have not caught the disease. In the meantime, they urge residents to check their immunization records and confirm they are protected against measles with two MMR vaccines. Unvaccinated individuals 1 year and older should receive a measles vaccination to protect themselves and those around them.

"Measles is an acute, highly contagious viral disease. A small number of cases are capable of quickly producing epidemics," said Becker. "It only takes one infected patient to start an outbreak."

Symptoms include fever, runny nose, cough, and eye discharge followed by a fever and rash. If you are showing symptoms, and know you've been exposed to the disease, it is important you limit your exposure to other people so you don't spread the disease. Call your health provider immediately and tell them you are showing symptoms and may have been exposed.

Children should receive their first dose of measles vaccine between 12 and 15 months of age; another dose at 4-6 years of age. Measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine is generally first given at 12 months of age in the United States, but is sometimes recommended for children as young as 6 months of age who are traveling outside the United States or could be infected in an outbreak.

For more information on measles, visit phd5.idaho.gov/Disease/MeaslesTraveler.html or www.cdc.gov/measles. To obtain a measles vaccination, call SCPHD or your health care provider to set up an appointment.

For information about presumptive evidence of immunity, see http://www.cdc.gov/measles/hcp/index.html#immunity

For MMR vaccine recommendations, see https://www.cdc.gov/measles/hcp/index.html#vaccination

Tuition Increases Need to Occur Less Often

By Debbie Critchfield, President, Idaho State Board of Education

Increasing college and university tuition and fees is one of the hardest decisions the Idaho State Board of Education must make. The Board knows full-well it results in a heavier burden on students and families.

The Board in April approved resident tuition increases at Idaho's four-year college and universities. The increase across all the four year institutions averages just over $400 per year.

About two-thirds of the increase will cover increases in employee pay and benefits. The rest will be used for operations and facilities intended to improve the student experience on campus. My Board colleague Emma Atchley said we need to "keep college affordable and accessible to students but the education they have access to should also be high quality and the institutions need proper resources to ensure that."

In 1980, tuition and fees contributed just over seven percent of the cost to run our higher education institutions. Due to growth in institutions' budgets, the increase in the cost of doing business and more demands on tax dollars, students and families are covering 46 percent of the institution's budgets.

Idaho is not an outlier. Policy makers in states across the country are cutting taxpayer contributions to higher education and have been for decades.

As a result, the Board is grappling with how to manage these yearly tuition increase requests.
I can tell you that as the new Board president, I plan to work with our institutions to continue to find ways to lower student costs.

We need to emphasize program consolidation where appropriate, in order to direct more resources to high-demand programs such as computer science and education. In addition, the Board's Open Education Resources initiative will provide textbooks for certain courses at little or no cost.

Students and parents are frustrated with rising costs, but a college diploma still has a strong return on investment. A bachelor's degree is worth about $1 million more in lifetime income compared to a high school diploma.

A college education is not just a private benefit; it is also a public good. Research shows that individuals with higher levels of education are more likely to live healthy lifestyles, have employer-sponsored health insurance and be more active in civic engagement.

With last month's appointments of Dr. Marlene Tromp as the next president of Boise State University, and of C. Scott Green as the new president of the University of Idaho, we now have new presidents in place at all of our four-year institutions. (Dr. Cynthia Pemberton at Lewis-Clark State College and Kevin Satterlee at Idaho State University were both appointed just over a year ago). All four new presidents are highly capable administrators who have pledged to take on challenges together, making this an ideal time to work collectively with stakeholders and policy makers to find ways to cut or at least contain tuition costs.

A college education is a great investment for individuals and for our state as a whole. We all have a stake in keeping it as affordable as we possibly can. Our students are depending on us.

Annual spring cleanup planned for Snake River Canyon's north rim

TWIN FALLS, Idaho - The Bureau of Land Management Twin Falls District staff will join the Southern Idaho Off-Road Association, Magic Valley ATV Riders and Jerome County on Saturday, May 18, to clean up the north rim of the Snake River Canyon.

Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to join the cleanup effort, which will begin at 8 a.m. and wrap up around 2 p.m. Participants should bring rakes and square point shovels to help with the cleanup. Trash bags will be supplied.

Volunteers should plan to meet just north of the Perrine Bridge and east of Highway 93.
Each spring for the past 20 years, these organizations and volunteers have gathered to pick up trash that collects year after year. "This area is important to all of us who like to recreate out here," said Josh Martin of the Southern Idaho Off-Road Association. "It's a bit disheartening that we need to come back each spring to tackle the yard waste, garbage, and trigger trash that tends to accumulate out here. Thankfully, we have a great group of committed volunteers and sponsors."

"This clean up provides a good reminder that this area is the people's park and we want to keep it safe and clean in its natural state for all to enjoy," said Jerome County Commissioner Charlie Howell.

Coastline Equipment Rental donates the use of its heavy equipment to haul out the huge volumes of trash, and Southern Idaho Solid Waste donates roll-off dumpsters to aid the cleanup efforts.

Shoshone Outdoor Recreation Planner David Freiberg noted this cleanup effort as one that has changed the appearance of the North Rim. "As the North Rim area is so easily accessible to a wide variety of users from both Twin Falls and Jerome Counties, it seemed everywhere you went there was a mountain of water heaters, tires, refrigerators, garbage sacks, construction waste, and dead animals. Thousands of acres have been cleaned up and have remained relatively clean," said Freiberg.

Unfortunately, several areas within the Snake River Canyon Park continue to be littered with illegally dumped trash. These areas will be the focus of Saturday's events, which will allow numerous volunteers the opportunity to take part in keeping their public lands clean, safe and beautiful. Volunteers for the cleanup should plan to dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes and bring gloves and sunblock. The Southern Idaho Off-Road Association will provide pizza for lunch for the volunteers.

Additional sponsors for the cleanup event include KOTO Brewing Co., Twin Falls Sandwich Co., Treasure Valley Coffee, and PSI Environmental Systems.

For additional information, please contact Josh Martin of the Southern Idaho Off-Road Association at (208) 308-2078.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The agency's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America's public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. Diverse activities authorized on these lands generated $96 billion in sales of goods and services throughout the American economy in fiscal year 2017. These activities supported more than 468,000 jobs.
