CommunityServiceThanks To Those Who Participated in the CSI Service Day for the Community

Thank you to all of the faculty, staff, and students who participated in the CSI Service Day for the Community. They visited sites like Habitat for Humanity, YMCA, Refugee Center, Valley House, and Twin Falls Parks and Recreation to help where they could. Lots of spring cleaning happened for these organizations! It was a great opportunity to work alongside students with a common goal of giving back.

SBDCGood News From the Small Business Development Center

Bryan Wright PT, DPT, CERT.
Twin Falls, Idaho

Bryan Wright's passion for physical therapy developed after his mother had a significant knee injury. He was able to accompany her to her physician visits. When her doctor confused Bryan for her therapist, he grew more interested in physical therapy. Bryan has maintained an interest in healing people and increasing athletic performance. Wright Physical Therapy developed in the Magic Valley with the help of the Idaho Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Twin Falls. Bryan's initial SBDC assistance came in the form of support for development of a business plan. As consulting progressed, financing for the construction of a building was secured through Business Lending Solutions. A student team also developed an employee human resource manual for the company. Wright Physical Therapy has six locations in the Magic Valley area - Twin Falls, Kimberly, Burley, Wendell and Jerome. The company has grown to over 50 employees, including 20 Doctors of Physical Therapy and 1 licensed physical therapy assistant.

HerrettForumHerrett Forum: "Idaho in Africa"
The Herrett Forum at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Apr. 20 takes you to The Great Rift, but not the one most of us in southern Idaho have visited near Craters of the Moon. Heidi Ware, Outreach Director for the Intermountain Bird Observatory at Boise State University, will show what's being done to restore Africa's Gorongosa Park in Mozambique's Great Rift.

'Idaho in Africa - The Unique Partnership That Restored Gorongosa National Park' demonstrates the collaborative efforts of Idaho Falls philanthropist Greg Carr, Zoo Boise, and the Intermountain Bird Observatory to reintroduce animal species and birds that were wiped out during decades of civil war in Mozambique.

Ware's work focuses on integrating hands-on science for K-12 and university level students with various Intermountain Bird Observatory research projects. She has made two trips to Gorongosa and is currently involved in the training of young Mozambique women scientists here in Idaho.

The Herrett Forum is a monthly series of presentations generally held the third Wednesday evening of each month during the school year. Topics are coordinated by the Herrett Forum Committee, a group of community individuals dedicated to bringing high quality presentations to Twin Falls. No tickets are required for this free public lecture. Doors open at 7 p.m. The Herrett Center for Arts and Science is located on the north side of the College of Southern Idaho campus at the North College Road entrance.

StageDoorCSI Stage Door Series Presents "UnCaged"
The CSI Stage Door Series will present "UnCaged" on April 21. The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students and will be available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu.

Iconic artist John Cage employed many of the same methods to his music composition as to his work with painting. Chance dictates compositional, aesthetic, and artistic choices in this performance. The audience will participate as faculty members Milica Popovic and Scott Farkas create music and visual art in the tradition of John Cage's chance creations. Unusual objects will be used to create sounds as well as visual marks. This promises to be a unique and hands on performance marrying music and visual for everyone!

The CSI Stage Door Series, intimate arts experiences where both performers and audience members are on the stage itself, are designed to be thought-provoking and a little out of the ordinary in different ways - whether it's because of the intimate setting, the material performed, the way they are presented, or the collaborations involved.

For more information, contact the CSI Fine Arts Center at 732-6288.

Romeo and Juliet
April 27-30, 2016 at 7:30 pm on the Fine Arts Center back lawn
Tickets are now available for the final performance of the CSI Theater Department's 2015-2016 Season, Romeo and Juliet. The show will run Wednesday through Saturday, April 27 - 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Globe Theater, a special outdoor stage space built especially for this performance behind the CSI Fine Arts Center.

In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare weaves the tragic tale of two young, star-crossed lovers. At the heart, it is the world's most famous story of romantic love...but it's so much more. It is also a play about a younger generation stretching to break the bonds forged by their elders. It is a search to define the boundary between unfettered romantic love and the mores demanded by society. It is a story of coming of age, of growing up, and of youth struggling to redefine the world in which they live, guided by passion and love. Whether you are experiencing the work for the first time or rediscovering its beauty and poetry, join us as the College of Southern Idaho presents this beautiful and moving piece of theater under the stars in the beauty of an Idaho spring. Audience members are welcome to bring low back chairs and blankets to sit on and food/drinks, but alcohol is prohibited on the CSI campus. Tickets are $8 each for adults and $6 each for students/seniors.

What pairs better with Shakespeare than an evening of jazz, wine, food, and conversation with friends? At 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 29, CSI and the Magic Valley Arts Council will be offering The Romeo and Juliet Director's Circle, a special program prior to that evening's performance at CSI. Join fellow lovers of Shakespeare for a pre-show presentation and discussion with Romeo and Juliet director Shane Brown, including jazz from Brent Jensen and Michael Frew, wine, and hors d'ouevres. The discussion will include the direction of Romeo and Juliet as a dramatized sonnet, the themes emphasized in the play, and design concepts used to highlight those themes. After mingling, eating, drinking, and discussing, attend the performance of Romeo and Juliet in special reserved seating on the lawn in front of the CSI Globe Stage. Ticket price includes admission to the pre-show discussion, hors d'oeuvres and wine at the Magic Valley Center for the Arts, and reserved seating at the show. Tickets are $20.

Tickets can be purchased at the CSI Fine Arts Box Office, by calling 732-6288, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu For more information, call 732-6288.

PlantSaleFamily Fun at the Annual CSI Plant Sale
The annual Plant Sale at the College of Southern Idaho will not only be a good place to find deals on house and garden plants. This year, it'll be a fun place for the family.

Chance Munns, CSI Horticulture instructor, says this year's two-day event will feature free food, a giant-sized bounce house, music, games, an obstacle course and sandbox for the kids. And, of course, great deals on plants. Munns points out that CSI students are simply selling their 'projects,' which includes succulents, flowers, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, baskets, and planters. No merchandise has been brought to CSI for the event, but the greenhouses will be full of plants grown and tended by CSI Horticulture students this school year. The program needs to clear those plants out so it can start over next semester.

In addition to plants, the Horticulture program will also sell its own Spring Five Cote fertilizer for $30 for a 50-pound bag. Munns and CSI students will be available to answer gardening and fertilizing questions.
Free food will be available starting at 11 a.m. each day until it's gone. Raffle tickets will be sold for various prizes including a $50 gift card, a motorcycle helmet and tie downs, and trees that include spring snow crabapple, river birch, Chinese juniper, white ash, greenspire linden, honey locust, Canada red chokecherry, and Colorado spruce. Proceeds from the event will go toward Horticulture Club activities and horticulture scholarships.

The sale will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7 at the CSI Greenhouses located on the west side of the CSI campus across the circular road from the gymnasium. Co-sponsors of the event include Webb Nurseries, Culvers, Action Cycles and Sleds, Teton Trees, Clearwater Power Equipment, and Bounce With Me.
