TrusteesComments are Encouraged for District Board of Trustee Zoning Proposals

Even before it's signed by the governor, The College of Southern Idaho is complying with a new state law that will require all three of the state's community colleges to divide their respective taxing districts into five zones of nearly equal population. Jeff Cooper, who teaches Geographic Information Systems at CSI, has designed two maps of the CSI district for the public and members of the CSI Board of Trustees to 
consider. Each proposal divides the two-county district in a different way.
House Bill 512 requires that each of Idaho's three community colleges divide its taxing district into five 
zones with a trustee elected from each zone. The intent of the law is to guarantee representation from 
each county of the college district. The law stipulates that each of the five zones be 'as nearly equal in population as practicable.'  
Population figures for the two maps have been drawn from the 2010 census, which showed the combined population of Twin Falls and Jerome counties to be approximately 100-thousand, meaning that each zone must be as close as possible to 20-thousand people. The law also states that where a college district consists of more than one county and each has a sufficient population to warrant at least one zone, then 
at least one zone shall be wholly within the boundaries of each county. Because the 2010 census gave Jerome County well over 20-thousand people, each proposed zoning map allows Jerome County to elect 
at least one, or possibly two representatives to the CSI board. Currently, all five CSI board members live
in Twin Falls County.
Provisions within the new law will allow current board members to finish their terms. The terms of trustees Thad Scholes, Jan Mittleider, and Laird Stone expire later this year, meaning they can seek re-election in November only if they reside within the zone they would represent. Trustees Karl Kleinkopf and Bob 
Keegan don't face re-election until November 2018, meaning the same rules would apply to them at that time. Cooper designed each map not knowing where any of CSI's current board members live.
The governor is expected to sign the bill that has been passed by the Idaho House and Senate, after 
which each community college board must submit its zoning plan to the State Board of Education, which 
will consider them at its April meeting and decide by July 1 of this year.
Large-scale maps of the two zoning options are on display in the Taylor building on the CSI campus in  Twin Falls as well as at the CSI Jerome Center at 104 West Main Street in Jerome. Comment cards and  a drop box can be found near each set of maps to allow for handwritten feedback. Each map can also be found online at www.csi.edu/TrusteeZones where viewers are also encouraged to submit comments. Feedback can also be mailed to Office of the President, College of Southern Idaho, P.O. Box 1238, Twin Falls, Idaho, 83303-1238. All comments must be received by Monday, April 4 in order for the CSI board  to consider the feedback later that same week at a special board meeting at which they will decide on  which plan to submit to the State Board of Education.

SMARTSMART Program Final Reminder
There is one week remaining in the SMART (Students Making A Right Turn) program. The SMART program will remain open for your referrals until Thursday, March 31.  The last day to withdraw from spring semester courses is Friday, April 15.
Here's how the SMART referral process works:
  • First, identify a student who may be having some sort of struggle in your class.
  • Second, submit a referral for that student through MyCSI.  Once logged into MyCSI, select the Faculty tab.  Then select the PASS/SMART submission link.  Additional instructions can be found at the referral site.
  • Once your referral is submitted, the Advising Center will send a confidential email to the student on your behalf.  
  • Advisors will call students who have been referred to specific first year courses or who have been referred more than once.  During the phone call, the advisor will discuss with the student why they have been referred, possible strategies to address the concerns in the course, and make appropriate referrals.
  • To maximize the value of the referral, please do not refer a student more than two times during the open submission period. 
If you have any questions about the program, feel free to contact me.

BirdsDo Birds Hit Your Office Window?
Each semester students in the Environmental Science Honors section participate in a group research project using the campus as their laboratory. One of the groups this semester is investigating the occurrence of window strikes by birds on a number of the campus buildings. The students involved in this project ask for your help. If you hear a bird strike your office window or notice a dead or injured bird below a window please notify their instructor, Randy Smith ( rsmith@csi.edu, x6817) and he will have the students contact you to gather your information.  

Millions of birds die each year nationwide as they inadvertently fly into windows they perceive as a fly through area. The students are monitoring CSI buildings to see if this is an issue or not on our campus.  

Thank you in advance for helping these students with their investigation.

AoTArts on Tour Presents "Kahulanui"
Grammy-nominated Kahulanui will take the CSI Auditorium stage for the sixth performance of the Arts on Tour 2015-2016 Season on Friday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $24 for adults and $10 for students high school and under and under and are available at tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288. 

There is a new wave coming from Hawaii, a blend of traditional music and the Big Band Swing brought to the Aloha State by U.S. servicemen during World War II. Its leading exponent is Kahulanui, a nine piece band-four horns plus guitar, bass, ukulele, drums and steel-whose energy and dynamic arrangements have caused a sensation throughout the Islands. Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr. found inspiration from his Grandfather, Robert Kahulanui, who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music. In the CD liner notes for this debut release Hawaii radio icon Sylark Rossetti elaborates: 

"Throughout Hawaii in the 20s and 30s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian Swing and the house would be jumping. Lolena and Kahulanui borrow from these influences and perform classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian Swing vibrant and alive in Hawaii today. Lolena 'Lena' Naipo, Jr. goes back to his roots in Kahulanui's first release, Hula Ku'i. It's Hawaiian Swing at its finest.... one of the most innovative releases to come out of the islands." 

Their debut CD, Hula Ku'I, was nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award in the Regional Roots category and was also a finalist in 2013 for the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawaii's version of the Grammy Awards) in three categories: Album of the Year, Group of Year and Most Promising New Artist of the Year. 

Kahulanui's execution of big-band stylings evokes an era of smoke-filled bars alive with lindyhopping dancers. Underlying this contemporary take on vintage music, moreover, is a cultural cohesiveness of enacting ku'i-of joining old and new. 

The season will conclude on Friday, April 15 with The Fab Four: The Ultimate Beatles Tribute. For more information on this or other Arts on Tour programs, including season subscription and mini subscription information, call 732-6288.

IBO is using birds to bring Gorongosa back to life through scientific research programs, community outreach, and training of young women scientists right here in Idaho.
Heidi is the Education and Outreach Director for the Intermountain Bird Observatory at Boise State. She  graduated from Boise State University in 2014 with a Master's Degree in Biology, where she studied the impacts of traffic noise on migrating songbirds. Heidi's work with IBO focuses on integrating hands-on science for K-12 and university level students with various Intermountain Bird Observatory research projects. Heidi has made two trips to Gorongosa and is currently involved in the training of young Mozambique women scientists here in Idaho.
