BridgeCSI's 'Bridge to Success' Program Receives Grant to Continue
The College of Southern Idaho's successful 'Bridge to Success' program will continue for its second summer this year, thanks to a grant from the Idaho National Laboratory and the Idaho STEM Action Center. CSI has been notified that it will receive $20,000 to help first time, degree-seeking students as they transition to college to pursue programs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Funding partners also include the CSI Foundation and the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation.

The ten-week program, offered on the main campus from June 6 to Aug. 10, introduces students to the academic expectations of college, specifically for STEM degrees that require challenging first-semester course work in math. Additionally, the program develops 21 st Century skills that are essential in the classroom and in the workplace, promotes community engaged learning, familiarizes students to valuable campus resources to increase student success, and fosters social and professional networking with peers, industry, and college staff.  

The program is also designed to increase female and minority enrollment in STEM programs and increase math success, which is often a stumbling block for college students.

Students who are interested in signing up for this summer's Bridge to Success are encouraged to contact John Hughes at 208-732-6549 or jhughes@csi.edu. More information about the program, including a short video and online application, can be found at http://www.csi.edu/bridgetosuccess/

Community Education Classes 

From 1917 to 1919 the world went to war against  one of the deadliest enemies it has ever faced. An enemy so efficient in its ability to kill, it would take months from the time it killed its first victim until scientists were even able to identify it. This enemy killed indiscriminately, but it was especially efficient at killing the healthiest of the world's younger adults. No nation could defeat it, and it remains undefeated to this day. During its murderous rampage, this enemy killed an estimated 50 million people. Because this enemy could not be seen or heard, most learned of its existence as it tore through towns, villages and cities, leaving a trail of death and despair behind. At the time, news reporters called it the Great Spanish Flu. Where this flu actually started is a debate among scientists, but the damage it caused is undebatable and reverberates to this day. As with cities and small towns across the globe, Gooding County did not escape this enemy unscathed. Join us and hear how the people of Gooding County rallied, as they have from the time of the first settlers, to assist the survivors and keep their towns and their county moving forward.

Kelly Kast was born and raised in Gooding County and has spent many years researching and writing about the intriguing history of south-central Idaho. Kelly was a staff writer for the Gooding County Leader for seven years and its editor for three years. She has published many history articles with Idaho Magazine. Kelly currently works for the Idaho State Police and in 2013 published Without Compromise, the history of the Idaho State Police, in celebration of its 75 th anniversary.

HerrettForumMarch Herrett Forum "Oasis in the Desert"

South central Idaho's heaviest traffic today may be on Blue Lakes Boulevard or Interstate 84, but turn back the clock 152 years and the busiest place in the valley was the Rock Creek Station and Stricker home site south of Hansen.

Curtis Johnson, whose great-aunt Gladys Stricker lived there as a child, will discuss the history of Magic Valley's oldest settlement at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Mar. 15 in his Herrett Forum address 'Oasis in the Desert.' The Rock Creek site was an important stop along the huge 19 th Century westward migration. Many of the pioneers continued toward Oregon or California and a few put roots down here in the Idaho Territory. Johnson is the past president of Friends of Stricker, Inc., a non-profit organization that assists the Idaho State Historical Society in preserving and restoring the Stricker site.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the event begins at 7:30. It is free and open to everyone.

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. 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.

The editors at AARP have filtered through numerous medical journals and studies to identify the best actions you can take to achieve a longer, fuller life. We know there are no guarantees. But genetics account for just 25 percent of a person's longevity. The rest is up to you. With this collection of some of the most important longevity findings, you'll have the road map you need to get to 80, 90, 100 or beyond.
1. Frozen is fine
You can eat a balanced diet even when fresh fruits and vegetables are out of season because frozen can be as good as or even better for life-extending nutrients. British scientists found that fresh fruit can lose nutrients after three days of refrigeration, while frozen fruits don't suffer the same fate. Another study similarly found that frozen blueberries contained more vitamin C than fresh ones. 
2. Cut back on pain pills
Regular use of painkillers such as ibuprofen and naproxen - including over-the-counter brands such as Advil, Motrin and Aleve - may raise your risk of heart attack and stroke by 10 percent, according to a 2014 U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel review. (Prescription-strength versions may increase your risk by 20 to 50 percent, even after just a few weeks of use.) Reserve these drugs for severe pain, and use the lowest possible dose for the shortest amount of time. 
3. Please go to bed
Consistently sleeping less than six hours a night nearly doubles your risk of heart attack and stroke, according to a review of 15 studies published in the European Heart Journal.
