RecycleCardboard Recycling Information
"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Bruntland Report for the World Commission on Environment and Development (1992)

Help Sustainability and Maintenance recycle cardboard. Cardboard is the number one product in our current recycling stream, followed by newspaper and paper.

Approximately 85% of all products that are sold in the USA are packed in cardboard. Yes 85%. Cardboard is a raw material called pulp which is extracted from tress. From this point alone, we should really attempt to recycle cardboard to limit the amount of deforestation that occurs in the world. It is very local from the point of view we need the oxygen that trees give off.

We know manufacturing is not the best friend to the environment that we live in and every step that we can help ourselves out we should invest in that process. Adopting greener ways of use of the products around us will not only help us it will help the environment that we must live in.

Other reasons to recycle cardboard. It is single largest component that is going into our solid waste dumps around the world. If we can keep that number down our landfills will last a lot longer.

Fascinating Facts:

544,000 trees could be saved each year by replacing just one roll 100 percent recycled paper towels.

For every ton (2,000 pounds) of cardboard recycled we can save 9 cubic yards of landfill space. What is 9 cubic yards? Just picture 1,800-gallon milk jugs.

Each ton of recycled paper saves approximately 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 4,000 kilowatts of energy, 7,000 gallons of water. This represents 64% energy savings, 58% water savings and saves 60 pounds of estimated air pollution. Also absorbs about 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air.

So, please, do your part and break down your boxes before depositing. I have copied an article form 2013 for you written by a Margaret Kemp if you want even more information about the world of cardboard. http://www.wolfpointherald.com/index.php/wp-news/local-news/1171-recycling-cardboard-a-never-ending-task

NHDNational History Day - Regional Competition Needs Judges

National History Day in Idaho is an exciting way to engage students in history. The program pulls students out of the classroom and into the world of the professional historian. Students track down information about historic people and events by exploring archives, libraries, and other resources. The program culminates at the national competition held each June at the University of Maryland at College Park. This year's theme, Conflict & Compromise in History, requires you to view history through multiple perspectives. 

When: March 3, 2018 (Saturday)

Time commitment: 4-5 hours (breakfast, lunch and gift of thanks will be provided)

Why do it? Judging is an interesting way to connect with students, support your community, and learn about history! Come and be inspired by Idaho students!

History Day judges review entries in a specific category, interview students, provide constructive feedback, and determine which students advance to the next level of competition.

DoctorFluHow Actual Doctors and Nurses Combat the Flu
So, you spend all day inside with people who are hacking and coughing and snuffling. You can't leave.  It's your job to be there. What can you do? 
 
"But what about doctors and nurses who are surrounded by germs pretty much on a daily basis? In addition to their medical training, they have real-world experience fending off the flu, which double-qualifies them as being experts on this topic."
 
Here's a great article including all the good behaviors you can add to getting flu shot that will help fend off those pesky bugs starting with getting a good night's sleep and taking natural supplements.  Chicken soup? That might help too!

Broadway"The Golden Age of Broadway" Replaces "I Love Piano"

"The Golden Age of Broadway" will be taking the place of I Love a Piano for the Arts on Tour schedule at 7:30 p.m. on February 16. The show will expand the repertoire from Irving Berlin and is a special concert that focuses on the wonderful music and lyrics from the greatest composers of the American Songbook. The musical pays tribute to iconic musicals such as "Guys and Dolls," "My Fair Lady," "Music Man," and West Side Story,". Broadway performers Michelle Knight and Patrick Ryan Sullivan, accompanied by a four-piece orchestra, will perform classics from Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Kern, Jerry Herman, Richard Rodgers, Frank Loesser, Kander & Ebb, and George Gershwin. The musical gems include "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Don't Rain on My Parade," and "I Could Have Danced All Night". Song selections are from the most beloved shows and by the greatest composers and lyricists from Broadway.

MICHELLE KNIGHT - Michelle is an Orlando native and UCF grad. After being on Broadway with Jersey Boys, Michelle premiered and starred in the off Broadway musical Disenchanted (Lucille Lortel award Nominee-Lead Actress). Other credits include national tours of Grease(Rizzo) and the 30th anniversary tour of Annie. Michelle is often a leading player with the Orlando Philharmonic (My Fair Lady, Carousel, Guys and Dolls, How to Succeed.)and tours with the concert "Rhapsody & Rhythm: The Michelle has also been in several shows at Walt Disney World with the Voices of Liberty, and as Dory in Finding Nemo the Musical.  https://www.broadwayworld.com/people/Michelle-Knight/ and  https://www.growingbolder.com/happily-ever-after-926072/  


PATRICK RYAN SULLIVAN - Patrick had the privilege of remounting the Jerry Orbach role in the National Tour of 42nd Street the Musical. Mark Bramble, the author of the show, was quoted as saying, "I have never seen a better Julian Marsh." Upon his recommendation and rave reviews across the country, Patrick was transferred to the Broadway show to take over for Tom Wopat (who had moved onto the lead in Chicago). In the Broadway company of TITANIC, Sullivan stood by for, and played three leads. Upon the closing he landed the role of Gaston in Broadway's Beauty and the Beast. He was the last Gaston to play the role at the incredible Palace Theatre in NYC and spent two years performing opposite Andre' McCardle (the original ANNIE), as Belle. He played Billy Flynn in the Macau, China company of CHICAGO, translated in three different languages. Patrick has performed in over 250 different productions, in 45 states and 9 countries. https://www.patrickryansullivan.org

7:30 p.m.
CSI Fine Arts Theater

Once again, the plays of William Shakespeare give us insight and commentary on events in our own culture. Join the CSI Theater Department as we explore the roles of gender in our culture, and how they relate to mercy, hypocrisy, and the abuse of power. The city of Venice is one overrun by brothels and a loose set of morals. The Duke, unwilling to use his authority to institute change departs, leaving Angelo in charge. Angelo, initially reluctant, soon starts to reinstate older, harsher laws to force morality on the city and close the brothels. The changes highlight the hypocrisy of the ruling elite, and the temptation to abuse power. Tickets: $10/adults or $5/seniors or students. CSI students are free.

The class is geared towards people over 60, however if you are not 60 you are welcome to attend as well (people 60 and older will have priority registration if space becomes limited).  

This class will have a variety of exercises that anyone who loves water fitness classes is sure to enjoy! The class will meet at 8 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and will run from February 26 - May 25. 

If you have a City Pool Pass the price is $47 and for the community it is $90.  Registration can be done at the CSI Rec. Center building on the west side of the CSI campus.

We are really excited to offer this class to the community! If you have any questions, please contact the Twin Falls City Pool at (208) 735-3464.
