CKE changes hands again

Carpinteria-based CKE Inc., parent company to Carl’s Junior, Hardees and Green Burrito restaurants, was recently acquired by Roark Capital Group, which counts restaurants Arby’s and Cinnabon in its portfolio of 29 companies. CKE senior management will retain its minority interest in the company, which was last acquired three years ago by Apollo Global Management, LLC. “Roark is thrilled to partner with CKE’s A-plus management team led by Andy Puzder, and be associated with these differentiated brands and their engaged and successful franchisees and employees,” commented Neal Aronson, Roark’s Managing Partner. The deal, scheduled to close in the fourth quarter of 2013, values CKE at between $1.65 and $1.75 billion and is subject to regulatory approvals and closing conditions. CKE has 3,400 restaurants in 42 states and 29 countries and U.S. territories worldwide, generating approximately $3.9 billion in revenues, according to a company press release. Atlanta-based Roark has invested in other restaurants including Miller’s Ale House, Corner Bakery and McAlister’s Deli. Apollo paid $693 million for CKE in 2010. CKE CEO Puzder has repeatedly made public statements that an unfriendly business climate in California could drive the company to move its headquarters elsewhere, likely Texas. CKE’s lease at its 6307 Carpinteria Ave. location is up in 2015. No information released with the current deal has indicated changes for the Carpinteria headquarters or staff.

A tree-mendous effort

Christmas cheer and kiddo camaraderie abounded on the corner of Carpinteria and Holly avenues Nov. 30. Pictured, Sebastian Campus joins his fellow boy scouts as they unload hundreds of evergreens for the Christmas Tree Lot that serves as the local boy scout program’s major annual fundraiser. This year, the lot moved down the street from its decadesold location under the Wardholme Torrey Pine. Hours of operation are noon to 8:30 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.

“Gateway to Downtown T” property gets green lighted for build By PETEr DuGré

An empty lot at the corner of Carpinteria and Holly avenues may soon sprout a two story mixed-use building after a unanimous City of Carpinteria Planning Commission approved construction plans on Dec. 2. City staff referred to the lot, situated two blocks west of Linden Avenue at 4819 Carpinteria Ave., as a “gateway to the Downtown T,” and had recommended that planning commissioners approve designs, which include retail, office and residential uses, based on consistency with other construction in the city’s central commercial district. In recommending approval of the property, city planner Nick Bobroff said construction at the site would “jumpstart that area of Carpinteria Avenue” and make it “a little more downtown like Linden Avenue,” a primary goal for that area. The Planning Commission, which was without Commissioner Glenn La Fevers, discussed concerns about parking at the site and potential for soil or groundwater contamination caused by possible remnants from the location’s previous incarnation as a gas station and auto repair shop until the mid 1990s.

Frank’s Bench dedicated

Friends and family members of the late Frank Louda gathered on Nov. 27 to install and dedicate a Franklin Trail bench in Louda’s honor. Tom Jackson and David Moseley designed and built the bench, which is perched at the end of a small spur trail as indicated by a “Frank’s Bench” sign. The site of the bench was chosen to include both mountain and ocean views, as Louda was an avid surfer. Frank’s son, Josh Louda, worked on the trail spur as well as the bench, and funds for the project were contributed by Frank’s widow, Jodie Ireland, and the foundation she established in Frank’s memory.

Pool gets much-needed maintenance

The City of Carpinteria deemed the Community Pool’s holiday closure a big success. over Thanksgiving weekend, pool staff members worked to complete cleaning and maintenance projects that can’t be done when the pool is open. They emptied the pool, scrubbed its bottom and then refilled it with fresh water. Both locker rooms received new plastic lockers and fresh paint on the floors. The pool reopened in time for the first Carpinteria High School home girl’s water polo game of the season. Call the pool for the latest schedule, 566-2417.

Covered California agent helps with enrollment at Rite Aid

Independent insurance agent Renée Robinson-Calise has been helping to clear up some of the confusion clouding new healthcare exchanges. Robinson-Calise has set up her consultation booth at Rite Aid, 801 Linden Ave., where she can guide the uninsured through the online insurance marketplace and provide information about tax credits and the full selection of Affordable Care Act approved plans. “I’ve been getting really good feedback,” Robinson-Calise said. “People are happy to have me there to help.” She has been Covered California-certified and specializes in letting individuals know what the new law means for them. Her hours are monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Friday from noon to 5 p.m. Robinson-Calise is contracting through Green Cross Insurance Company, which has an agreement with Rite Aid to allow insurance sales in stores.

This holiday season, the friends and family of Jessica Rodriguez, an 18-year-old local woman with spina bifida hydrocephalus, are holding a tamale sale to raise funds for a special bicycle for Rodriguez. The lifelong disease has led Rodriguez to several surgeries and limited mobility. Walking is difficult for the young woman, but the bicycle should afford her increased independence and mobility. one dozen homemade tamales, in a choice of pork, chicken or chili and cheese, cost $20. orders can by made by calling 881-8143 or emailing nellable@me.com and will be delivered on either Dec. 11 or Dec. 19.

tion efforts had been deemed complete by the Santa Barbara County Fire Department in the mid 2000s. When construction begins, the county health department will monitor soils for any contamination in the areas where there had formerly been underground gas tanks. As approved, the 8,080-square-foot, two-story building will provide three fewer on-site parking spaces than required by city code. The developer commented that in order to provide adequate interior room for two retail spaces on the ground floor, an upstairs office and two one-bedroom apartments, there would only be enough space remaining on the lot to provide 12 parking spaces, two of which would be in one-car garages for the apartments. Architect Tray Burnell commented, “It’s not as simple as it seems sometimes to say just take away some building and add more parking. It would make it unfeasible.” Commissioner Jane Benefield felt the parking issue was a choice of the applicant, not a necessity. “They’re not unable to provide the parking spaces; they’re unwilling,” she commented. In the approved plans, the developer will have to pay parking impact fees of $5,000 each for the three spots. Before casting her vote of approval, Benefield said, “I think the building is very attractive. I like it… But, you’re on notice that I’m concerned about (the parking).” Representing applicant M3 Multifamily, John Martin commented that the 3,274-square-foot, upstairs office space will be used to relocate the apartment management company from Santa Barbara. “We would like to bring our business to Carpinteria; this is what this is all about,” Martin said. He said the additions of retail and residential components at the site were necessary to adhere with the downtown commercial zoning. He described the first floor retail locations as “a very attractive space,” and compared them to Crushcakes on Carpinteria Avenue. The spaces will be built as “retail shells” and eventually tailored to tenants’ needs. Planning Commissioner John Moyer was concerned that the retail space immediately at the corner of Carpinteria and Holly avenues “screams café or restaurant,” which would only increase parking demands at the site. An outdoor patio area is incorporated into the designs. Planning Commissioners agreed that the parking constraints made the location unsuitable for a restaurant, but the issue would be brought back to planners before business permits could be issued for future tenants of the site. Applicants originally presented a proposal for the site to the Architectural Review Board in February, and the drawings were generally panned for being too tall and too close to the sidewalk. The original proposal had two separate buildings on the site. Since then, the applicant scaled back designs to a single building, varied heights reaching a maximum of 29 feet, pushed the building back from the sidewalk and added more landscaping to appease the ARB and Planning Commission. The ARB will revisit final drawings and conduct an “in-progress review” of the construction.

‘Tis the season for scammers

The caller said, “Don’t hang up. You have won a free home security system.” Upon asking who they were and how they are paid, they hung up. That was Security Solutions from Florida. Minutes later I got another unsolicited call. They said they are Credit Management Association from San Deigo. They say they can reduce my interest rates on any Master Card, Visa or American Express. I asked why I can’t call them myself to lower my interest rates. The caller said, “That’s our job, and it doesn’t cost anything.” I asked, “Then how are you paid?” He hung up. Be aware.

One man’s trash

The Carpinteria City Council was discussing E.J. Harrison’s loss of revenue due to our local entrepreneur scavengers. Yes, by contractual agreement E.J. Harrison has a legal right to recycle and collect all revenue from our discarded waste, and the fee they charge us is partially based upon this profit margin. E.J. Harrison’s legal position was well stated, but the impoverished and/or homeless recyclers were totally ignored. Have you ever observed the recycling center behind CVS? Honestly, it’s a survival place for the impoverished. If you truly observe “street people,” you recognize that many extremely poor individuals have few employment opportunities. This practice of raiding dumpsters is their work, and a miniscule profit may allow

them to purchase a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter or even a bottle of booze. From a contrarian point of view, where was the support for the poor folks at the city council meeting? None! Unfortunately, the poor and destitute many times ruffle the feathers of the well-to-do. Yes, citizens do complain to city hall regarding our scrap entrepreneurs. Concession to the poor: Sometimes when the waste-pickers are rummaging through the trash, the compassionate thing to do is just look the other way. Yes, the unfortunate and homeless need to eat, perhaps even at the community’s expense.

Wags and wheels

As the city is gearing up to host public meetings regarding options for placement of a skatepark, we propose an alternative location not yet considered in the mix: the eastern end of Union Pacific Railroad Parcel B on the south side of the tracks at Linden Avenue. There is plenty of open space to also accommodate a long-needed off-leash park for man’s best friend—our four-legged companions! Like skateboarders, canines also need to stretch their legs, play and practice their agility in a safe designated area. What a great westward expansion of Tomol Park this would be! Car parking should continue to be located on the north side of the tracks and expanded west if need be. Carpinteria’s ability to accommodate multiple special interests through its parks and open space is indeed extraordinary.

Common Core brings new strategies to Carpinteria classrooms By Erin LEnnon

This fall, Carpinteria Unified School District teacher Kristy Guerrero has grown accustomed to standing in front of rooms filled with her peers from throughout the district. Her mission for the 2013/2014 school year is to train Carpinteria’s educators in new ways to teach math under the approaching Common Core State Standards Initiative. Guerrero is a welcome sight throughout the district, as are a slough of other professional development tools, as CUSD overcomes all of the politicking and bureaucracy to implement the nationwide Common Core State Standards in Carpinteria classrooms. The National Governor’s Association, the Council of Chief School Officers and leaders in education and business, who either create well-educated youth or reap the benefits, created the newly implemented standards in 2009. Forty-five U.S. states and the District of Columbia have adopted this voluntary curriculum, taking a step toward a universal set of math and English Language Arts standards. Under these surface objectives, CCSSI is designed to coordinate assessments and classroom practices throughout the country. However, Alaska, Texas and Virginia say their schools will not participate in the Common Core initiative. California adopted the common core standards in August 2010, and this school year those standards have gone into practice in every classroom, from kindergarten through high school. The new math and language arts standards are designed to be more rigorous, requiring teachers to help students transcend merely answering a question by providing the tools necessary to understanding why a particular answer is correct and how the answer was found. Essentially, Common Core’s goal is to ensure students not only know 2+2=4, but that they understand how to calculate the answer so they can map out strategies for similar problems inside and outside the classroom. “A lot of the students have a difficult time using what they just learned and incorporating it into an outside problem,” said Carpinteria High School Principal Gerardo Cornejo. He sees the ability to apply lessons learned as a major benefit of Common Core. CUSD teachers will have to perform a little teamwork to achieve the depth and rigor requested under the new curriculum. Educators from across subjects can pool their resources and align their lessons to help students get a deeper understanding of grade-level appropriate topics, said Cornejo. Under Common Core, English Language Arts introduces students to varying types of texts, and literacy is a part of every classroom, from history and social

studies to science and technical subjects. “It’s not just for college, it’s for careers,” said Cornejo, who is confident that the increased collaboration between departments will help prepare students for a variety of post-graduation opportunities, whether they’re heading to a college campus or work. Cordeiro, on the other hand, has seen educational trends come and go over his decades in education. CUSD’s recent success in comparison to neighboring districts shows that the district’s way of doing things has worked. And he doesn’t want parents, donors or students to forget that. While 34 percent of CUSD’s students are English Learners, who speak another language outside of school, and 61 percent of students fall under the poverty line, CUSD surpassed 800, the target score for all California schools, on the state’s Academic Performance Index during the 2012-2013 school year. Last spring, CUSD received an 809 along with the Ventura Unified School District and outpaced Santa Barbara Unified School District’s 807 and Lompoc’s 769. “I want to remind people that (Common Core) does not amount to erasing everything we do that’s effective and starting over,” said Cordeiro. “This does not mean that everything we’ve done here before has been ineffective.” While Cordeiro remains what he calls a discerning adopter, he is preparing his staff for the implementation of Common Core this academic year. He counts out on his hand the components to doing just that. Resources, as usual, are one of the first digits ticked off. The textbooks accompanying the new curriculum will begin rolling out in early 2014, but others may not be available until 2016 or 2017. However, Cornejo isn’t waiting for any textbooks. “Textbooks are not what make instruction great,” he said. “It’s about getting teachers the resources and time that they need to make a difference.” Both Cornejo and Cordeiro have already seen teachers incorporating materials that they have found online from throughout the country, ranging from CCSSI materials from the Santa Ana Unified School District just to the south and from across the country in Kalamazoo, Mich. “It’s going to make teachers more astute, more confident creators of curriculum,” said Cordeiro. “The common core, as they say in the documents, doesn’t tell you how to teach. So we’ll see some original work come out of this.” However, implementing Common Core, whether using materials shared online or new textbooks, will cost money. California’s current budget set aside $1.25 billion for schools to use for implementing CCSSI, which is about $200 per stu-

Washington and Sacramento battle over new state testing

On Oct. 2, California signed into law Assembly Bill 484, in which California Measurement of Academic Performance and Progress assessment (CalMAPP) replaces the state’s longtime California Standards Test. California Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson suspended CST testing and subsequently required that districts only administer either the math or English component of the CalMAPP assessment to students in third through eighth grades and 11th grades this spring. CalMAPP will be field-tested before officially launching in spring 2015. Torlakson’s decision led to a backlash from the federal government, which annually tests students in both subjects as part of No Child Left Behind. Firmly opposed to Torlakson’s single-exam plan, the federal government threatened to fine California tens of millions of dollars. In late November, Torlakson changed his approach, requiring California students to take both the English and math components of CalMAPP this spring. dent. Initial spending is heading toward technology. Part of that funding will be directed toward the new computerized assessments that accompany the Common Core curriculum. Starting in spring 2015, CUSD students will ditch their pencil and paper state assessments to take the online California Measurement of Academic

Herbal coffee company calls Carpinteria home BY LEA BOYD

Carpinteria receives a lot of attention for its beautiful beaches and charming downtown, but its quaint reputation belies an impressive amount of commerce and industry humming away off the beaten path. Teeccino contributes to this hum. The top coffee substitute in the nation is headquartered on Cindy Lane in the Carpinteria Industrial Park. Caroline MacDougall founded Teeccino in 1994 after awakening from a dream in which she conjured up the business name and concept. Having spent 20 years sourcing herbs and formulating teas for various companies, including Celestial Seasonings and Republic of Tea, MacDougall sought to develop a hot herbal beverage that would be a caffeine-free, healthy alternative to coffee. Over the next 20 years, MacDougall experimented with natural products from all over the world to create dozens of flavors of Teeccino, a brand that quickly established a major foothold in the natural foods market. Now Teeccino is sold at Whole Foods grocery stores around the nation, as well as many spas and health food stores, including Pacific Health Foods in Carpinteria. MacDougall estimates that 4 million cups of Teeccino were consumed internationally in the last year. The company moved from Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone to the 10,000-squarefoot office and warehouse space in Carpinteria a couple years ago. MacDougall initially had concerns about leaving the company’s longtime Santa Barbara home, but she soon discovered that her new headquarters were “fantastic” and situated in “the best industrial park in the world.” These days, MacDougall spends most of her time in the Carpinteria office, but in the earlier era of her company, passport stamps accumulated quickly as she darted around the world to find new products to create a coffee-like experience without caffeine. Her first set of flavors were Mediterranean focused—nuts, vanilla, chocolate. Years later she developed her Maya line of flavors using a nut sourced from trees in the Guatemalan rainforest. Launched in 2006, the Maya line comes closest to replicating the flavor of coffee. Most recently, the company launched its Dandelion flavors, which are gluten and barley free. So why not just drink decaf coffee? Some caffeine remains in decaf coffee, MacDougall explained, but Teeccino is a completely caffeine-free product. Additionally, the decaffeination process uses chemicals and removes coffee’s natural

Caroline MacDougall, founder of Teeccino, shows an array of products in the lobby of the company’s Carpinteria headquarters. antioxidants. Teeccino offers its own set of health benefits, such as potassium and prebiotics. “Feed your probiotics Teeccino,” MacDougall said. And while Teeccino employs 12 people in the Carpinteria area, its products provide income for many dozens more around the world. The ramon seed, which is the primary ingredient in the Maya flavors, drops from 130 foot trees in the Central American rainforest and is then harvested from the forest floor. Seeds are cleaned, dried, roasted and ground in Guatemala, which provides forestsustaining income for indigenous people. MacDougall said that Teeccino has also offered a new tool to empower Maya women, who work harvesting the ramon seeds. “When you become a producer of income, not just a producer of children, you become of higher standing in your community,” she said. Business savvy around hot beverages seems to run in MacDougall’s family. Her great-grandmother Alice Foote MacDougall was a successful entrepreneur

The season for believin’

I see that Macy’s is asking us to believe again. “Believe” is the message printed in their full-page newspaper ads—accompanied by a swirl of stars surrounding an attractive young man or woman dressed in holiday attire. The ads appear every year early in the holiday shopping season, followed later by ads for a full lineup of goods with the same star swirl. Suggesting stardust, I guess, a touch of magic? I have a friend who mimics a gag response whenever she sees these ads. I hope the Macy’s marketer who came up with this simple and elegant sales pitch got some kind of bonus because it has definitely stood the test of time. Still, I’m always a little puzzled about exactly what the Macy’s people want us to believe. The obvious? That their store is the ultimate shopping destination, the place where, just past the perfume counter, we will discover our holiday heart’s desire. Since the ads always picture a happy and handsome young person, we’re invited to believe that Macy’s is the first choice for happy young people to shop. And then, by extension, we, too, (all the rest of us aging boomers and company) can, through the magic of belief, achieve this same youthful enchantment by patronizing their store. I’d really like to think there was more to this message than crass commercialism, but Macy’s is a store, not a church. And they don’t take out full-page ads just to spread the joy of Christmas. I’m always struck with wonderment by the yearly appearance of this exhortation to “believe.” It makes me pause for a moment, questioning exactly what it is I myself believe. More than any other season, winter is the time for raising existential questions. What did the earliest people think when the sun deserted the earth for months, shrank back, shortening the days and bringing on the starvation time, long, bleak nights, scarce food and no game? It’s not by accident that the Nativity is celebrated at nearly the same time as Winter Solstice. We humans needed a time to rejoice—an occasion for finding hope—when the season reaches its deepest and darkest. Here’s a list of a few things I believe about the holidays: First, I believe in the season’s magic. Because what else can account for people dropping everything to come together, even briefly,

for fellowship, acts of charity and the common good? I believe in celebrating the season—Christmas or Hanukah—in whatever way your family has come to find the most satisfying and joyful. There is nothing more valuable than time spent with family, the ritual of gathering together to share talk and time and special meals prepared with care and love. I also believe in Santa Claus, every kid’s sweetest, most long-lasting dream and the hardest to give up. So I haven’t yet, even though my grandchildren have. For me, the jolly old gift giver—St. Nick, Father Christmas—embodies a special American kind of Christmas, one filled with generosity, expansive delight and high spirits. I believe in sleigh bells, even though I have never seen them in person. I believe that dashing through the snow in a sleigh might be just as gleeful as we are led to believe. I believe in getting and receiving gifts because they are fun to choose and fun to receive—especially if you’re a kid. I also believe that some of the best gifts don’t come gift-wrapped, but arrive in the form of surprise visits, selfless giving and spontaneous acts of kindness. I believe the holidays can bring out the very best in us, that for a brief time we can give up self-centeredness, become a little more angelic and act for a higher good. I believe in the value of Christmas carols, both to hear and to sing, because music is magic, too. I believe in holiday lights, both twinkle and colored, although the colored ones are best for their exuberance and their capacity to shout down the darkest nights. And I believe that Christmas trees have the best smell in the world, closely followed by freshly baked gingerbread.

let’s go!

the cast of “a Christmas Carol” gives thanks to the folks who worked behind the scenes to bring about the heart-warming production.

Here we come a-caroling Photos By eVelyn CerVantes

having mastered ebenezer scrooge’s character over several seasons in the starring role, gene garcia flashes the audience his best bah humbug face.

Thanksgiving leftovers were barely cold last week when Christmas season arrived with the opening of “A Christmas Carol” on Nov. 29 at Plaza Playhouse Theater. The uplifting message of generosity and joy echoed through the auditorium as Ebenezer Scrooge was convinced to give up his miserly ways and adopt an open heart through the visitation of three Christmas ghosts. Play director Asa Olsson adapted the script from the classic novella by Charles Dickens, and many of the actors enjoyed a return to the same roles they have played for several seasons. Readers who missed last weekend’s productions still have a chance to get swept into the “Christmas Carol” spirit. The theater, at 4916 Carpinteria Ave., will host the play again this weekend on Friday, Dec. 6 and Saturday, Dec. 7 beginning at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 5 p.m. Tickets, priced at $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and $7 for 12 and under, can be reserved by phone at 684-6380 or purchased at Curious Cup Bookstore, 5285 Carpinteria Ave., or online at plazatheatercarpinteria.com.

a young ebenezer scrooge (Joseph Calzada) reveals the circumstances that transformed a kind boy into a curmudgeonly man.

Wearing a leafy garland, the ghost of Christmas Present (grant Mckee) shows ebenezer scrooge the ripple effect of a simple change in attitude.

Amrit Joy’s Hints for Healthy & Happy Living Be content with what you have

In order to be happy, focus on being grateful for what you have. Want less; appreciate all of the abundance you have been given already. Notice the small things. Take stock: what do you really need? Spend some time letting go of clothes, housewares and anything else that you haven’t worn or used in a long time. You will feel lighter, more energized when you make a decision to want less instead of more. Amrit Joy is a certified Hatha and Kundalini Yoga instructor. She has been practicing and teaching yoga since 1976. Amrit offers ongoing group yoga classes open to all levels here in Carpinteria. Private instruction in yoga and meditation is also available by appointment. For more information, call Amrit Joy at 745-1707 or visit www.amritjoy.com.

There are many milestones in the human life: the first time we speak, walk, go to school, fall in love, and get our hearts broken by finding out that Santa’s not real and our own parents had been lying to our faces all these years! Of course, the sense of betrayal is blunted by the thoughts of all those magical Christmas mornings waking up to our lifelong dreams wrapped in glossy paper. So scarred and elated are we by the whole ordeal that we go to extreme measures to recreate it for our own children including, but not limited to, fighting angry mobs for the “hot” toy that they will forget about come Saint Patrick’s Day, staying up until 2 a.m. assembling the racetrack that says “some assembly required” but conveniently omits that a postdoc in mechanical engineering with a minor in kinesiology is also necessary, and summoning all willpower to leave some cookie crumbs and carrot bits in the plate to prove that Santa and his reindeer were there. Thankfully, the children never ask why the reindeer need to come down the chimney. They’re too busy opening up a misassembled racetrack which the parents blame on drunk elves. “You know how they are …” But I digress. To this list of magical, wondrous milestones, we add colorectal cancer screening. Once the average individual turns 50, it is time to have the conversation with his or her doctor which consists of, “You’re 50 now. You need a colonoscopy,” followed by a phone number for the patient to call. It’s like giving a dog the phone number for the vet to set up its own neutering appointment! Given that colorectal cancer screening is neck in neck with vinegar facials for popularity, some people have come up with various, elaborate excuses not to partake in this right of passage. Let’s look at a few examples. “But I feel fine.” Excellent! Then you should have colorectal cancer screening! Since it is a screening test, it is designed for people who “feel fine.” Here’s why:

colon cancer is common enough over the age of 50 to make it worthwhile to screen everybody. Second, if we catch colon cancer early, the treatment is infinitely easier. Typically, it’s as simple as removing a polyp. Third, by the time someone has symptoms of colon cancer, the disease is very advanced and treatment is much more difficult and sometimes not even successful. “It doesn’t run in my family.” That is more excellent news! In that case, you should get screened for colorectal cancer. Family history is just one part of someone’s risk for colon cancer. Most people with colon cancer have no family history at all. “What if they find something bad?” This is the quintessential dilemma of modern medicine. We have great screening tests to catch dangerous diseases early, but it does involve finding out that one has a dangerous disease. The prospect of being told that they have colon cancer is so daunting that some people would simply rather not know. Most people who feel this way realize that it is not logical, but the emotional response is so great that it overwhelms logic. For this group of people, my advice is to do whatever it takes. Have a “Saving Private Ryan,” “Schindler’s List” and “Misery” marathon to put things in perspective. Pretend you are a secret agent about to do the most intense undercover work that no other agent would dare take on. For added effect, during the colonoscopy, you can yell, “Is that all you got!!?” Pretend that the intestinal cleanse is also ridding you of spiritual impurities. Then present for the procedure dressed as a monk with a shaved head handing out flowers. The bottom line (no pun intended) is to get the screening done. It is one of the most important things anyone can do for their health. It won’t be the most pleasant 24 hours you’ll ever have, but it likely won’t be the worst. After all, I bet even Santa has had his colorectal cancer screening. If he hasn’t, I’ll know just what to leave out for him on Christmas Eve.

In honor of Computer Science Week, Dec. 9 to 15, The Howard School students will join their peers from around the country for the National Hour of Code event. Additionally, the school will unveil a strategic technology program that fosters in-depth learning of computer technology. The Howard School’s teacher-directed technology program will plug Kindergarten through eighth-grade students into new technologies, giving them a jumpstart on digital education. “When you use technology in a meaningful, targeted way, it can be very valuable in helping to advance a child’s comprehension and foster the process of teaching children how to learn, which is what The Howard School is all about,” commented Headmaster Joel Reed in a press release. As part of the new strategic technology program, Howard classrooms will be equipped with an iPad, Apple TV and television so teachers can guide students through lessons in technology.

Warrior soccer captains, from left, Juan Carlos Orozco and ricky Zermeño look to be the glue that brings a talented Carpinteria High School soccer squad together for the 2013-2014 campaign.

Warrior boys soccer mixes young talent with experience By PETEr Dugré

Second-year Carpinteria high School soccer coach Leonardo Quintero said one of the team’s early-season weaknesses should become its greatest strength. the roster contains experienced leadership and a core of underclassmen that has won national championships with Santa barbara Soccer Club. As a whole, the team is new, and will need to learn to play together. but that blank canvas presents an opportunity and is ripe with potential to be filled with big victories as the season progresses. “We need to communicate and make sure we understand each other and that everyone is on the same page,” Quintero said. the team will look to returning players Victor Saldaña, a junior striker, and seniors, striker Brandon Landeros and midfielder Juan Carlos Orozco, to control the attack. orozco, a speedy and versatile team leader, is an early season nominee for captain. Senior Ricky Zermeño returns on defense, and Jesus ortega is an additional senior leader coming back this season. the young core with national championship experience will occupy a chunk of the roster. “I’m looking to fill pieces around them,” Quintero said. They’ll be tasked with maintaining the Warrior tradition of winning tri-Valley League over the next three seasons. the Warriors are currently on a streak of winning 5-of-6 tVL championships. Sophomores Edward Delgado (goalkeeper), Benjie Garcia (midfield), Juan pablo Alvarez (defense) and eric Contreras (defense) and junior Francisco Arroyo (midfield) were a big part of the national championship Santa Barbara Soccer Club team over the past two seasons. At both the u14 and u15 levels, the players traveled the country to take on the top clubs in the tensest of environments.

Warrior girls soccer looks to gel before TVL battle begins By PETEr Dugré

Carpinteria high School girls soccer holds out hope that it can steal some wins in a tough tri-Valley League this season. Co-captains erin durflinger, Kelsie bryant and Alexa benitez lead a core group of returning talent that will look to use ball control and a wide open attack to achieve the goal of making playoffs among a field of teams that includes deadly oaks Christian and oak park high schools. Joining the captains, other core returners include monica Garcia and Lesly Zapata. “our main goal with all of them is just to get them on the same page. it will take time, but I am confident we will get there,” third year coach Charles bryant said. Kelsie and benitez play the midfield, and Durflinger plays defense. Around the core group, sophomores Jessica meza and megan durflinger will battle for playing time as outside defenders. Freshman Ava Gropper will play at goalie. the Warriors faced an uphill battle last season—in which the team bumped

up to tri-Valley League—but were able to collect two league victories. “We actually graduated the most players out of all seven teams (in tVL) so it will be quite tough again,” Charles conceded. “A lot depends on how quickly we start to gel as a team.” Last season, oaks Christian came in second in the state. oak park was almost as good. La Reina, malibu and Santa paula high schools round out the division. “i am hoping we can make headway this season, upset a few of these schools and make it to CiF,” Charles said. Charles said ball control in the midfield will be key to collecting those wins, and offensively, the team will need to generate production from many players. Along the way, the team must shake off its rust, hone ball control skills and refine its tactics. “We are a step behind right now, but i am confident we will be a better team at the end of the season,” Charles said. “We just need to get a few games under our belt and gain some confidence.”

Warrior girls soccer player Giselle Estrada (#19) battles with a Bishop player for possession during a 1-1 draw on Dec. 2.

Girls soccer

Dec. 2 – Opening the season at Bishop Diego High School, Warrior girls soccer scored quickly but went dry for the rest of the match to finish in a 1-1 draw. At the five-minute point, Lesly Zapata intercepted an errant goalie kick and drilled a 20-yard score to put the Warriors up 1-0. The Warriors controlled the ball early, but eventually momentum shifted and Bishop took the driver’s seat for much of the match. “We just seemed to be a step slower in some areas,” commented coach Charles Bryant. The Cardinals tied the score on a penalty kick with about five minutes left in the game. Bryant commended the play of Warrior goalie Ava Gropper, a freshman in her first varsity action. The Warriors start the season 0-0-1.

Of the 94 runners who lined up at the starting line for the Red Rock 50, just 78 finished, including Carpinterian Chuck Graham, who trotted over the mountainous 50-mile course in 13 hours, 37 minutes on Nov. 24. Graham runs the course every year and said this year a calf cramp slowed him after mile 15, but he kept chugging until well after dark.

“The team consists of these groups that have played together, but as a whole the have not played on the same team,” Quintero commented. The Warriors will tune up for the league season over a rigorous preseason stacked with upper division opponents. When entering TVL play, the Warriors always have a target on their backs. Yet, even with their track record, the Warriors were left off the preseason Division 4 top 10 rankings. Santa Paula High School, with whom the Warriors shared last season’s TVL championship as co-champs, was ranked seventh. “We have something to prove,” Quintero commented. “I tell the guys, ‘Play with a chip on your shoulder.’” The Warriors split the first two contests of the year: a 3-2 loss to Buena High School and a 6-3 victory over Nordhoff High School. In an effort to showcase one of CHS’s most decorated programs, Quintero said he’s looking to turn home contests into events this season. The scoreboard will be manned for the 5 p.m. contests under the lights, and the concession stand will be open for business with warm treats. Cheerleaders will warm up the crowd, which the team hopes to draw through its continued successes.

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

Above, Mark Zorick timed his ascent of the Franklin Trail just right on Nov. 23. He lined up his lens with the spectacular sunset—one of so many in recent weeks—and pressed the shutter to capture the vibrant day’s end.

At left, Lance Pifer followed the siren song of another full-color sunset on Dec. 2 from his spot at Lucky Llama to the end of Linden Avenue. After dozens of westward beach shots, he snapped a few frames of the Chappell family—Danica, Dylan and baby Hudson—soaking up the end of the rays.

Friends of the Library Used Book Store recommendation “Albert Camus: A Biography” by Herbert R. Lottman

A hundred years after his birth, the writings of Albert Camus remain relevant today. The author of a wide range of works, including “The Stranger,” “The Plague,” “The Myth of Sisyphus,” “Algerian Chronicles” and “The First Man,” Camus won the Nobel Prize for Literature in his 40s. When he received the Nobel Prize, the Swedish academy cited him as “one of world’s foremost literary antagonists of totalitarianism.” He was recognized for “his important literary production, which with clear-sighted earnestness illuminates the problems of the human conscience in our times.” Lottman explores the life of a writer raised in poverty by an illiterate family in Algeria who fought in the French resistance. Philosopher, playwright, novelist, essayist and journalist, Camus eloquently rejected an amoral colonial politics. His commitment to be at the service of truth and liberty and to resist oppression resonates to this day. ––Customer, Friends of the Library Used Book Store, 5103 Carpinteria Ave.

Student recommendation

“Let It Snow” by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

In three short, interconnected holiday stories that will delight readers of all ages, these three bestselling YA authors share tales of finding romance during the holidays. It begins with Johnson’s “Jubilee Express,” in which Jubilee, the leading lady, experiences a traumatic Christmas Eve when she breaks up with her boyfriend, sees her parents get arrested and gets snowbound in a waffle house all in the same day, only to meet a new love. The saga continues with “Cheertastic Christmas Miracle.” In this tale, Tobin goes with some friends to the aforementioned waffle house hoping to ask out a cheerleader he knows is at the restaurant with her friends, only to find that what he wants isn’t always what he really needs. Then, in the final story, “Patron Saint of Pigs,” Addie learns about respecting love and how to care for others when she sets out to prove she can be an angel for someone else—even if that someone turns out to be a pig. These charming stories of the magic of romance and the holiday season will enchant, amuse and have readers envisioning their very own tales of finding love amid snowdrifts and glittering lights during the holidays. ––Audrey Lent, Santa Barbara City College student

Coastal View & Carpinteria Library Book Club selection “The Elephant’s Journey” by Jose Saramago

“The Elephant’s Journey,” a tale of centuries old adventure and heroism, will be read and discussed by members of the Coastal View & Carpinteria Library Book Club this month. Authored by Nobel Prizewinning Portuguese novelist Jose Saramago, the book will take the spotlight at the club’s next meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave. In this tale, an elephant gifted from King Joao of Portugal to the Archduke Maximilian of Austria in 1551 must be transported from Lisbon to Vienna. Without a seaport in Vienna, Solomon the elephant must walk. The book follows Soloman’s fascinating trek across mountains and rivers in the name of diplomacy. Members of the public are invited to attend the holiday meeting of the club and are encouraged to bring finger foods to share. To find out more, call Lea at 684-4428.

CVN celebrates the French anniversary

To celebrate 31 years of wedded bliss, Tony and Vicki DiIoia traveled to France, where they ate their way through the country. While enjoying a champagne toast at Château des Ducs de Joyeux, they unveiled Coastal View News. The dinner was in a protected cave adjacent to the outdoor courtyard at the chateau, which is situated in the Midi-Pyrénées region of southwest France. They nibbled the unforgettable, six-course feast while a roaring thunder and lightening storm flashed all around them.
