NutcrackerLocal Ballet Students Practicing Hard in Anticipation of Performing The Nutcracker with Eugene Ballet Company
Eugene Ballet Company's Nutcracker stands out from all the other holiday shows as the one to see. Since the early 1900s, the Nutcracker has been the most performed and most popular ballet of all time. Danced to Tchaikovsky's memorable score, The Nutcracker is a favorite holiday tradition.

Now in its 36th year, The Eugene Ballet Company is, in the words of the National Endowment for the Arts, "one of the premier touring ballet companies in the United States". Over its 30 year existence, the company has performed the Nutcracker in 32 states and 7 countries. The Nutcracker performances on December 6 and 7 at the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium are a wonderful opportunity for the local community to see this outstanding professional ballet company.

Eugene Ballet Company's Nutcracker features a cast full of nationally and internationally acclaimed dancers. Artistic Director Toni Pimble overflows with enthusiasm when speaking of the talents of this season's performers.
"The Eugene Ballet Company brings dancers from all over the world to the CSI Fine Arts Center stage. Korean principal Yun-Kyung Kim bring technical aplomb and flair while Russian, Petr Orlov explodes onto the stage. Venezuelan Gilmer Duran brings character and magnatism, Leoannis Pupo Guillen acts the role of the Nutcracker with style. Juan Carlos Amy-Cordero's technical prowess is astonishing while long time principal dancer Jennifer Martin combines maturity with grace and technical acuity."
-          EBC Artistic Director, Toni Pimble
As has become the custom, local dance students will have the thrill of a lifetime as they perform onstage with the Eugene Ballet Company. Roles to be danced by the children include mice, angels, party children, flowers, and ladybugs. Students were selected by audition and have been actively rehearsing under the guidance off Rayni Capps. "Involvement of local dance students is something that we have always encouraged," according to Toni Pimble, the company's artistic director. "Their experiences with a professional ballet company will be something they will remember for years to come, giving them inspiration beyond their dance studies."

Performances will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on December 6 and 2 p.m. on December 7 at the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. There are still excellent seating options available for each performance. Tickets, which are $25 for adults and $18 for children high school and under, can be purchased at the CSI Fine Arts Box Office from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays, online at, or by calling 732-6288.

GovernorLittleReleaseNew Program Simplifies Path for Experienced Professionals to Become Certified Teachers
November 14, 2019 

New program simplifies path for experienced professionals 
to become certified teachers 

Boise, Idaho - Governor Brad Little announced the College of Southern Idaho (CSI) in Twin Falls will provide a new non-traditional route to educator preparation in Idaho. 

The Workforce Development Council under the Office of the Governor approved an industry sector grant for $1,114,424 to support CSI in providing an accelerated pathway for emergency hires as well as paraprofessionals and career-changers wanting to become certified teachers throughout the state. 

"The successful education of every child begins with a great teacher, and that is why we are committed to finding ways to train more teachers and incentivize them to stay in the profession by paying them competitively," Governor Little said. "The new program at College of Southern Idaho opens up a path for career-changers and others to enter the teaching profession so they can make a difference in the lives of our students. This is great news for those who are qualified and experienced in a certain field and have been thinking about becoming a teacher." 

Earlier this year, Governor Little and the Idaho Legislature approved increases to starting teacher salaries, and Governor Little plans to seek continued investments in Idaho teachers. 

Anyone in Idaho can participate in the new program if they qualify, regardless of location. CSI will employ a hybrid approach, combining online courses and mentoring for in-the-classroom support. The project is estimated to train 830 teachers over the course of the three-year grant period. 

These routes allow options for individuals to become certified teachers using assessments of content knowledge and experience to meet the standards that are normally met through the traditional postsecondary educator preparation program. 

The collaboration between the Workforce Development Council, the State Board of Education, and CSI is an example of these partners working together for the future of Idaho's education system. 

"Idaho's employers count on a strong K-12 education to prepare the workforce," Idaho Workforce Development Council Executive Director Wendi Secrist said. "Idaho's tight labor market is impacting all industry sectors, including education. This investment ensures that we have pathways into the teaching profession that don't discriminate based on where individuals live." 

According to the Idaho State Board of Education's Educator Pipeline report, there is a critical workforce gap for Idaho public education in certain areas of the state and in certain content areas. Idaho's rural areas, including the Magic Valley, are some of those areas impacted most by the shortages. Approximately 1,500 teachers in Idaho leave the profession annually, and they need to be replaced each succeeding year. Student enrollment growth also increases the need to train additional teachers each year. 

"The State Board of Education created a pathway for experienced people holding a college degree to enter the teaching field. The Magic Valley region is particularly affected by teacher shortages, and CSI is leading the way as they respond to a need by providing opportunities for those who have training and qualifications but lack a teaching certificate. CSI is serving both individuals and schools, and the Board expects to see similar programs started in every region of our state," State Board of Education President Debbie Critchfield said. 

The groundwork that made this approach possible happened in October of 2017, when the State Board of Education approved an alternative route to teacher certification based on mastery of the educator preparation standards. All alternative routes to certification, including non-traditional routes are required to meet the same high standards as the traditional routes in order to assure highly effective teachers in the classroom.

SmokeoutGreat American Smokeout Encourages Smokers to Quit for Good

November 15, 2019

PRESS RELEASE - For Immediate Release

Great American Smokeout Encourages Smokers to Quit for Good

SOUTH CENTRAL IDAHO - Smokers are urged to quit tobacco for a day, or preferably a lifetime, during the Great American Smokeout Thursday, Nov. 21. Since 1970, the event has been a new start for tobacco users around the country. The South Central Public Health District joins the American Cancer Society in urging South Central Idaho residents to use this year's Great American Smokeout to take the first step toward a smoke free life today.
Smoking accounts for nearly one in three cancer deaths in the United States, and increases the risk of more than 13 types of cancer.

"Quitting even for one day can be an important step toward a healthier life," said Cody Orchard, SCPHD Health Education Specialist. "We have nicotine replacement products for free, for anyone committed to quitting."

Although there is not a method to quit that works for everyone, there are some key elements that can help put smokers and other tobacco users on the road to living a longer and healthier life.

"The American Cancer Society supports any smoker who is considering quitting, no matter what approach they use," said Cliff Douglas, JD, American Cancer Society vice president of tobacco control. "The ACS recommends patients work with their clinician and use FDA-approved cessation aids that have been proven to help."

Consider these stay-quit tips from the American Cancer Society:

* Set a date. Picking a "quit day" is a critical first step. It's best to pick a date and allow yourself enough time to prepare and create a plan but not enough time to change your mind.
* Make a plan. Successfully quitting is a matter of planning and commitment, not luck. Many smokers prefer to quit cold turkey on their quit day while others try to smoke fewer cigarettes leading up to their quit day to slowly reduce the amount of nicotine in their body and reduce withdrawal symptoms. Consider local cessation classes that can give support as you make the change.
* Don't smoke on your quit day. Don't take even one puff! Keep your mind and body occupied by exercising or losing yourself in an enjoyable hobby, and avoid situations where the urge to smoke is strong (this may include avoiding alcohol).
* Avoid rationalizations. "I'll have just one cigarette to get me through this situation" ... "Everyone dies of something" ... "How bad is smoking, really?" Write down rationalizations as they come up and recognize them as messages that can trick you into going back to smoking. Be ready with a distraction to redirect your thoughts to something else.
* Bounce back from slips. A slip is a one-time mistake that is quickly corrected; a relapse is going back to smoking. While it may be tempting to use a slip as an excuse to go back to your old ways, you also can look at what went wrong and renew your commitment. Try not to get too discouraged - very few people are able to quit for good on the first try. Use what you learn from the slip to make a stronger quitting attempt next time.

Quitting is hard, but with a little bit of help your chances of success go up. Join the American Cancer Society for the Great American Smokeout on Nov. 15 and learn more about free local quit classes at

The Idaho Commission on Aging (ICOA) is conducting public meetings to provide citizens of Idaho an opportunity to comment on Idaho's four-year Senior Services State Plan due June of 2020. ICOA plans and oversees services designed to keep at risk seniors living independently.

Services that ICOA funds through local Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) include:
  • Home Delivered and Congregate Meals
  • Homemaker, Respite, Senior Transportation, Chore, Minor Home Modification
  • Legal Assistance, Adult Protection and Ombudsman services
At the meetings, ICOA staff will present the following for comment:  
  • Funding Formula: How federal and state funds are distributed to local areas for implementation.
  • Budget Parameters: The parameters to ensure funds are used for services.
Seek community input on program:
  • Current strengths, weaknesses, and unmet needs.
Town Hall Meeting Schedules
  • 11:00 - 12:00 - Information tables with ICOA staff
  • 12:00 - 1:00 - Lunch

The Idaho Commission on Aging (ICOA) is developing a four-year statewide Senior Services Plan and has contracted with Idaho State University to assess Idaho's needs. This below survey is about your experiences with the services and resources in your community that assist older adults with living independently. These are also services and resources that provide older adults with choices so that they have more control over their daily lives.
The responses that you and others provide to this survey will be summarized into a report. This report will be used to develop Idaho's Statewide Senior Services plan for the next four years. It will also be used by your local Area Agency on Aging (AAA) to strengthen services in your community.
Your participation in this survey is one of many opportunities to contribute to the Idaho Senior Services State Plan. We do not ask for any personally identifiable information. All information you provide is anonymous. The assessment results will be posted on ICOA's website at
We ask that you provide feedback concerning how these services affect your life. Most importantly, we ask that you read through the survey to learn more about the services being offered, and how they could benefit you or others you know.
The online version of the assessment will be available until November 30, 2019. This survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.
If you have any questions regarding this assessment, please contact Elizabeth Fore at the Idaho State University Institute of Rural Health at 208-282-4892.
