OokyThe Ooky Spooky Light Show at the Planetarium

October is just around the corner and with it comes all kinds of Halloween hijinks. This year the Faulkner Planetarium gets back in on the fun with a new program offering up Halloween-themed light show. The
Ooky Spooky Light Show debuts Tuesday, October 3 rd and runs throughout the month culminating in a special evening of Halloween showings.
After a four-year hiatus, Halloween programming returns to the theater with this program produced by Flint, Michigan's Longway Planetarium. The Ooky Spooky Light Show offers up family fun for all ages. The playlist of songs include: This is Halloween, I Put a Spell On You, Somebody's Watching Me, Night on Bald Mountain, Ghostbusters, Superstition, Bad Moon Rising, Spirit in the Sky, Monster Mash and Thriller. While your ears feast on these tunes, your eyes will feast on the choreographed visuals filling the planetarium's 50-foot dome. Wrapped in sound and light you will catch the spirit of the season in no time.
The Ooky Spooky Light Show runs on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM, Fridays at 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 PM and Saturdays at 2:30, 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 PM starting October 3rd and running through October 28th. A special slate of Halloween Day showings will be announced as the holiday approaches.
Located in the Herrett Center for Arts and Science on the College of Southern Idaho campus in Twin Falls, ID, the Faulkner Planetarium is the largest planetarium in the state. It has served the public for 22 years and is proud to bring some of the finest fulldome planetarium shows in the world to audiences of south central Idaho.

ChicagoTickets Are Available for Chicago, the Musical

Tickets are available for Chicago - the Musical, a co-production of The CSI Community Education Center, The Dilettante Group of the Magic Valley, and Magic Valley Little Theater. Performances will take place Wednesday through Saturday, October 4 - 7, in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Showtimes will be 7:30 nightly with a 2:00 p.m. matinee. Tickets are $14 and can be purchased at tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288. 
Chicago was nominated in 1975 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score and won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.

This production, directed by CSI's Shane Brown, features Camille Barigar as Roxie Hart, Johanna Stagge as Velma Kelly, Dusty Blackburn as Billy Flynn, Lori Henson as Matron Mama Morton, and Blake Burton as Amos Hart. The show also features choreography by Keesha Olander, musical direction by Lori Henson, and costume design by James Haycock.

CancerOctober is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The CSI Employee Wellbeing  Program joins the National  Breast Cancer Organization by recognizing breast cancer and encouraging our 40+ and high-risk employees and spouses in getting their screening mammograms. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime  Breast cancer can't be prevented, but it can be detected and treated.
The good news is that screening mammograms are a benefit for our employees and spouses covered by SelectHealth that are covered at 100%. The guidelines for procedures and coverage have changed through time, so we have included information from our current coverage for your convenience. 
Also, in Idaho we have a program through the Department of Health and Welfare that provides FREE breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to low-income and uninsured female residents. Women's Health Check makes it possible for all women in Idaho to get screened for early detection and screening. This is critical because Idaho has ranked very poorly in mammogram rates among women 40 and older. 
For that reason, we will REWARD all our women that qualify for a mammogram for having a current screening. We will include all our other women and men that encourage their spouses, mothers, and sisters to get their screenings during October or their birth month - which is a great time to remember our health and wellness as we age.
Watch for a message this week that you can reply to and tell us how you participated in our challenge. We will send your reward in the interoffice mail.
Don't forget to wear PINK ON FRIDAY to remind everyone how important this cause is!

FluWhat Are Your Options for Flu Shots?

According to the CDC, "An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community." It is especially important to protect children under six months who are not eligible for the flu vaccine.  
There are many places in our community to get a flu shot that is covered 100% by SelectHealth, but finding the vaccination without copay or administration fee is more limited.  For the most cost-saving options we recommend you visit your pharmacy or, for benefited employees and spouses age 18 and over, you may attend a flu clinic provided by St. Luke's on our Twin Falls Main Campus.
Thursday, October 5, from 3 - 4:30 in HEP 176
Tuesday, October 10, from 8:30 - 10 a.m. in TAB 247

AlzheimersAlzheimer's Association Raises Funds with Community Walk October 14
Note: This event is close to the heart of CSI employee Cari Eskridge.  Please consider leading or joining a team!
We are so excited to announce that the Alzheimer's Association has opened an office in Twin Falls to serve the South Central Idaho! We are excited to call the College of Southern Idaho our partner in community awareness! For years CSI has opened its campus to support our cause by hosting the Walk to End Alzheimer's. Please let me share a little bit about the Alzheimer's Association: we provide care and support to those affected by the disease and those who are caregivers, we advocate and we accelerate research. The Alzheimer's Association also provides on demand educational seminars, support groups, clinical trial pairing and our 1-800 number provides 24 hour answers to your questions and offers resources in your community. When would you like us to present to your company or family?
The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Since 1989, we have mobilized thousands of people in your community to join the fight against Alzheimer's disease, the nation's sixth leading cause of death. Our walk in your community is October 14, 2017 at the College of Southern Idaho. Let's make this year's walk the most amazing ever! Register for the Walk at www.alz.org/walk, click on Twin Falls. There is no cost to register. Our hope is that our amazing community will raise $200.00 (or more) per person and elevate awareness in South Central Idaho and allow continued programming. Can't wait to see you at CSI on October 14, 2017!

Be the Match
I would like to share my nephew's story with you all and encourage you to learn about, and if you are committed, to also register to be a marrow donor. Sergio Martinez, a Jerome High School and Trinity Lutheran graduate, is a beloved son and brother, a loyal friend and all around fun loving  guy.  He's also an amazing soccer player and inspiring coach that everyone looks up to.  

My nephew's battle started two years ago, this month. Following several weeks of feeling unwell, Sergio went in to the emergency room with abdominal pain.  After days of testing, he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and began aggressive chemotherapy.  Sergio went into remission for several months off and on, he has continued treatment and testing. The Leukemia is back for a third time and it is now in his bone marrow. Sergio's brothers and sister are not a perfect match for him.
70% of blood cancer patients have to seek a donor outside of their family. They, along with my nephew, are depending on a complete strangers to save their lives. Please keep my nephew and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he fights this disease.
Just as important as the prayers are, the help and support we can provide is by learning, teaching others, and registering to be a marrow donor through Be The Match.  My family's goal is to raise awareness of how our communities can help save lives by registering to be a marrow donor. Patients are most likely to match someone of the same ancestry. Adding more members who increase the ethnic diversity of the registry increases the variety of tissue types available, helping more patients find the match they need. Be The Match especially need members who identify as:
Members with these backgrounds are especially needed:
  • Black or African American
  • American Indian or Alaska Native
  • Asian, including South Asian
  • Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander
  • Hispanic or Latino
  • Multiracial
Donors never pay to donate marrow. Be the Match covers all travel costs and medical costs. Learn more at bethematch.org and share the information with your friends and family! I am a Be the Match Volunteer and can answer any questions or concerns you have about marrow donation. I encourage you to watch the video from KMVT regarding local Be the Match drives and how you can help save someone's life. Please go to bethematch.org.

ShakeOutThe Great Idaho Shake Out
It's that time of the year again for the Great Idaho Shake Out. Information can be found at https://www.shakeout.org/idaho/ and is available to  promote the event throughout your respective areas and organizations. Earthquakes are one of the three main natural disasters here in Idaho (along with fires and floods), and ShakeOut is a great way to engage and protect Idaho's citizens. The recent earthquake swarm in Eastern Idaho is a good reminder that earthquake safety is important, even if we don't encounter them every day.
The drill is simple, educational, and fun. At 10:19 AM on October 19th, participants will stop what they're doing and take cover under their desk or something sturdy. When the "all clear" signal is given, they will resume their activities. There can be education about earthquakes before or after the drill, and the amount of time and energy dedicated to the drill is up to the people conducting it, but it is a great opportunity to discuss emergency preparedness and taking responsibility for your own safety in the event of an emergency.
About 30,000 Idahoans are already registered. Please encourage your organizations to register and spread the word about ShakeOut, https://www.shakeout.org/idaho/register/. Thanks for your time and participation!
