Unpermitted greenhouse approved by county planners

By Lea Boyd

In a 5-0 vote, the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission approved a zoning map amendment on Dec. 4 to legitimize an unpermitted 264,500-square-foot greenhouse located between Foothill Road and Via Real west of Carpinteria city limits. Owned by Rene and June Van Wingerden, the property on which the Ocean Breeze Nursery greenhouse sits is now one step closer to shedding its designation as part of the view corridor overlay, a small area delineated in 2004. Properties within the overlay must adhere to more stringent building restrictions as a means of preserving important public view corridors and minimizing fragmentation of remaining open field agriculture. The planning commission’s decision must be approved by the County Board of Supervisors and then the California Coastal Commission before the overlay is officially removed. The Van Wingerdens’ agent Bradley Miles said that the property was wrongly designated to begin with. Located on the periphery of the protected view corridor, the Van Wingerden-owned parcel was zoned into the overlay due to a clerical error caused by the use of assessors maps rather than survey maps, Miles argued. Total greenhouse square footage on the property, which includes several permitted structures as well as the unpermitted greenhouse, is 386,600 square feet, amounting to 65 percent of coverage on the 13.66-acre lot. The overlay restricts greenhouse coverage to 25 percent or less. County staff recommended the property’s removal from the overlay due to its minimal visibility from Foothill Road and Via Real and due to its position within a cluster of permitted greenhouses rather than fragmenting open space. Miles said that the Ocean Breeze greenhouse was constructed without permits due to the length of time required to wade through the bureaucracy of having its zoning righted. According to county records, the greenhouses appear to have been built in 2004. It is a case, Miles said, in which it is better to beg forgiveness than ask permission. The Van Wingerdens will be required to pay a development impact mitigation fee estimated to be $32,752 as well as penalties for building without a permit. The conditions for approval required by the commission, which include blackout screens for night time lighting, are all already in place, according to Miles. The greenhouse, he said, is a state of the art facility. Vera Bensen, a local open space advocate, spoke critically of the project at the planning commission meeting. She questioned how such a large structure could be built in a restricted area without the county finding out for several years. “There are probably many more,” she said of unpermitted greenhouses in Carpinteria Valley.

Firefighter lawsuit claims misconduct by chief and district By Lea Boyd

Three firefighters filed a lawsuit on Nov. 27 accusing Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District and its fire chief, Mike Mingee, of failing to act in the interest of firefighter safety and retaliating against the plaintiffs when they raised safety concerns. Christopher Blair, Han Domini and Michael Hayek claim that Mingee denied proper safety training, refused to purchase appropriate safety equipment, failed to provide promotional opportunities and referred to the three plaintiffs as “the cancer.” They accuse Mingee of altering a test score to prohibit the promotion of Domini and then firing Blair when he confronted the chief about the incident. Mingee, a third-generation fireman with 37 years of public service, denied wrongdoing and said that he “will not stand by and let mine or my family’s reputation be tarnished.” He lamented that the plaintiffs’ attorney “choses to drag me and this fine Fire District through the mud in an attempt to gain some type of a settlement.”

Misconduct by Mingee, according to the plaintiffs’ allegations, began after Blair was hired by CSFPD on Jan. 1, 2012 as a battalion chief. Blair worked on the same shift as Domini and Hayek, both of whom are still employed by the district. All three served on the district’s Health and Safety Committee. According to the lawsuit, soon after Blair was hired, he began reporting concerns over unsafe workplace conditions and health and safety violations to the district and Mingee. Mingee failed to act on the concerns. He allegedly halted required physical fitness assessments and refused to act on findings that a particular employee lacked sufficient physical capabilities to complete the test. That employee was later injured. Numerous trainings, including water rescue and hose lay drills, were cancelled by Mingee, the suit claims, and necessary equipment such as wildland safety boots were denied the firefighters.

Cut Flower Commission looks ahead to 2014

The California Cut Flower Commission met on dec. 6 at MoBI’s Nursery in Carpinteria to celebrate its last year of accomplishments, laud outgoing Chairman Lane deVries and receive an announcement from Congresswoman Lois Capps. Though Capps was unable to attend the event due to an emergency in her office, she forwarded her announcement, informing the commission that she and San diego Congressman Duncan Hunter are in the process of establishing a bipartisan flower caucus for the purpose of increasing awareness and support of domestic flower growers. Capps was praised by growers for her tireless advocacy for the domestic cut flower industry. deVries, president and CEo of the Sun Valley Group in Northern California, noted that during his two-year term as chairman, the commission has made significant progress toward its goals of keeping California flower growers competitive in the face of growing competition from South America and other challenges. of greatest importance, deVries said, is the commission’s new sustainability initiative, which will be implemented beginning in early 2014. Additional accomplishments of note are a cooperative for cut flowers, grant monies secured for the CCFC, a shift to a new American Grown campaign and participation in the Slow Flower Movement. Michael A. Mellano, of Mellano & Company, will serve as the next chairman of the CCFC.

Rockwell releases outlaw tale

Carpinterian Rebecca Rockwell spends much of her time in the wild, wild west. The 1999 Carpinteria High School graduate and prolific writer just published her third Western themed book, “The Last Desperado,” which presents the true tale of outlaw Bill Doolin. Doolin led the notorious Wild Bunch on dozens of train, bank and stagecoach robberies throughout Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas in the 1890s. He famously broke out of jail before finding himself on the wrong end of a shotgun fired by a Deputy U.S. Marshal. Rockwell, who is now working to co-author retired Hollywood stunt coordinator Mickey Gilbert’s memoir, calls herself a “history buff” with a particular interest in westerns. Her newest book can be purchased for $28.95 in Montecito at Tecolote Book Shop, 1470 East Valley Road, or online through Amazon.com or publisher Outskirts Carpinteria author Rebecca Rockwell Press, outskirtspress.com.

Beware of bluffs development

Some recent proposals for Carpinteria Bluffs development have shifted from residential to commercial. Developers are acknowledging public response that residential development would most likely end up in the hands of the wealthy for exclusive weekend homes. Residential isn’t looking promising; so commercial is the proposal. Another recent proposal is affordable housing and commercial. Do not be fooled! There are only a small number that benefit in big profits from developing the area. If they claim it brings jobs, the only guarantee is temporary contracts for local construction and small revenue for landscaping and security businesses. Will it attract big companies? Perhaps. But half of the local industrial park buildings are unoccupied! But still, developers will use clever PR to justify development. The only reason to consider additional development is when supply cannot meet demand, which is absolutely not the case regarding commercial space in Carpinteria, most certainly not the bluffs. Look around, a number of businesses have packed up or downsized, shipping manufacturing out. Yes, some businesses have grown; the growth of Nusil, Channel Islands Surfboards and Lynda.com has kept the industrial park from turning into a ghost town. But there are a large number of buildings unoccupied. Recently, I walked the Bluffs. I saw a fox that appeared to be albino, a white-tailed kite, which are declining in numbers, shell midden (Chumash shell mounds) and a road runner. The area is one of the last undeveloped of its kind on the entire California coast. We should be seeking reason to preserve it forever, rather than reason to develop it by any means possible. A great example to benchmark, the Wilcox property in SB.

Give the homeless your shelter

In response to “One man’s trash,” Coastal View News, Dec. 5, by Bob Henry. You left out one thing in last week’s letter: Your address. Seeing that you are a staunch supporter of the homeless here in Carpinteria, why not publish your address so that the homeless can go raid your trash cans, loiter in front of your house, urinate in front of your house and drink their “bottle of booze” in front of your house. Also, the recycle center behind CVS is a mess. The homeless congregate back there at all times of the day and night, get their recycling money, buy bottles of booze, then accost shoppers for spare change. Like I’ve stated before, it’s time to nip this homeless problem in the bud, not turn a blind eye to it.

No peeing on my grass

To the pet owners in Carpinteria: Why is it so important that you bring your dog to my yard so it can do its business on my landscaping, rather than using its (your) own yard? And, why do you think I should be considered the bad guy because I voice my dissatisfaction with you as you stand there watching your dog fouling up my front yard? And, do you ever stop to realize that your dog isn’t the only one now using my yard? Because you thought my yard makes a better bathroom than yours, every other dog that now passes by also thinks it must mark my yard as its own territory as well. That’s just the nature of the species. Some of you say you purposely walk your dog over to the city park to do its business. That’s even worse! That’s where most families take their children to play. Do you ever wonder why the kids are getting sick all the time? If you must have a dog, be a responsible owner. Have an area for it to play, exercise and do its business. Just don’t make it my yard anymore.

Dryer sheets reek olfactory havoc

I was riding my bike the other day enjoying the out-of-doors, when to my consternation, I was assaulted by the perfume smell of dryer sheets. Whose great idea was it to mask natural smells like the sea with synthetic olfactory hammer blows created by sense-deadened chemists and advertising persons. Users of these products should be aware that they are imposing their false sense of freshness and cleanliness on everyone else. In my opinion, they are polluting, not improving. Scents are invisible, but they cross fences and enter private spaces without permission. In other words they are trespassers. There are enough unavoidable assaults on our health without someone deliberately spewing unknown chemicals into the environment. I’m not claiming that it is harmful, but then I don’t know. If an evil genius wanted to disperse a dangerous chemical effectively, he couldn’t come up with a better system than the millions of widely distributed hot air blowers that household clothes dryers are. There are plenty of much bigger issues to discuss, but most of them are difficult, if not impossible to solve. This little problem can be fixed right away, stop using the scented sheets. If you feel you have to use them, use unscented products.

Council pens parking agreement with Girls Inc. By ErIn LEnnon

The Carpinteria City Council tied up some loose ends at its final meeting of 2013 on Dec. 9, keeping city projects and boards moving forward as the new year approaches. To begin, the council formalized the long-informal agreement by which Girls Inc. of Carpinteria and the city’s El Carro Park share their adjacent parking lots along Foothill Road. For the last several years, the park’s Little League families and others have taken advantage of available spaces on the Girls Inc. property after the city-owned lot at El Carro Park is full. Likewise, attendees of large Girls Inc. events have found overflow parking in the city’s lot. The city has embraced this unwritten agreement, but it chose to put the agreement on paper after Howard School, a Girls Inc. tenant, recently proposed expanding its student body. Before Howard can increase its number of pupils, it must show Carpinteria’s planning department that it has sufficient parking. To do that, Howard School needed to boost its 43 parking spaces up to 53. The city’s formal agreement essentially welcomes Howard School to use spaces at El Carro Park during the school’s peak times. The city foresees Howard occupying 23 spaces during those short but busy peak times, up from the 13 normally used by those heading to the school. “This has been going on for 10 years; we’re just formalizing it,” said Mayor Brad Stein. However, his council left the city attorney’s office room to negotiate insurance provisions with Girls Inc.

new 9th Street footbridge one step closer

While parking got a bit easier for Carpinterians headed to events on Foothill Road, 9th Street pedestrians got closer to seeing a new bridge span the width of Franklin Creek. The council authorized City Manager Dave Durflinger to purchase a prefabricated bridge with a price tag not to exceed $72,600. Public works puts the cost for the whole project between $240,000 and $290,000, with a bridge lifespan of 40 to 50 years. In August, public works initially asked to rehabilitate the existing bridge for $210,000. Those fixes would have kept the crossing operational for five to 10 years. However, when staff found that the existing pedestrian crossing was much older than originally thought, the rehab was axed for a replacement. Thus an additional $30,000 to $80,000 was tacked onto the project’s budget. The 9th Street Pedestrian Bridge Replacement Project was allocated $105,000 in Safe Routes to School Program funds. The remainder is covered by Measure D

funds, which are revenues from a halfpercent sales tax increase in Santa Barbara County from 1990 to 2010.

Admin hearing policy updated

City Attorney Peter Brown also used the final 2013 meeting to revamp how officials are assigned to the city’s administrative hearings. These hearing officers hand down decisions concerning local matters such as city-issued citations for infractions like leaving one’s dog off leash and code compliance orders like failing to meet building codes. In 2002, Carpinteria’s city staff opted to appoint the hearing officers. Officers could only oversee one hearing during any two-year period. This provision was meant to avoid the appearance of a bias. No matter if the officer sided with the city’s perspective on a code compliance issue or with the appeals of the ticketed, he couldn’t oversee another hearing dur-

ing that period. On Monday, the council updated this policy in light of the city’s long-term agreement with Revenue Experts, a company that appoints hearing officers for the city. Carpinteria contracted with Revenue Experts in 2011, and under this contract the city has no control over who becomes a hearing officer or their compensation. This arrangement could save the city money by providing hearing officers long-term employment as opposed to paying them per hearing. But the use of long-term is a bit misleading, as Brown says it merely means that the officer will hear and rule on more than one matter. The city can still appoint a hearing officer if it is believed his or her expertise is necessary in deciding a matter. But that person will be held to the previous standard of one hearing during any given two-year period. “We think that when you combine all that stuff, the city has done the best it can to ensure there’s a neutral hearing,”

said Brown. He assured the council that residents who receive an adverse decision may also take their case to Santa Barbara Superior Court.

new faces join local boards

Finally, the council rounded out the rosters of some decision-making boards on Monday night. Catherine Decker joined the Mobile Home Park Rent Stabilization Board, and Michelle Robertson, Planning Commissioner Jane Benefield and Lisa Guravitz filled the Community Development Block Grant Committee, which annually chooses local recipients of county-issued grant funds. “That is a very tough board to be on,” said Stein. “We appreciate all of the work that they do.” The next regular Carpinteria City Council meeting will be held on Monday, Jan. 13, at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers, 5775 Carpinteria Ave.

HELP OF CARPINTERIA

LAWSUIT: CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

After a November 2012 structure fire exposed several firefighters to hazardous materials, Mingee refused to sign and accept forms documenting the exposure, according to the suit. In addition to labor code violations, the lawsuit alleges intentional infliction of emotional distress by Mingee and the district. Mingee, the lawsuit states, began referring to the plaintiffs as the “cancer shift” after Blair’s brother died of cancer in August of 2012. Mingee was hired by the district in 2008 after working most recently as a fire chief in Washington. Since moving to Carpinteria, he helped to bring the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life to town and has served on the executive board for Relay for six years. “What hurts me personally is the allegation that I would use the word ‘cancer’ as a bullying tactic,” he stated in response to the lawsuit. “Anyone who knows me knows the effort and commitment in this community I have made to raise money to fight that enemy.” Blair was fired by the chief just before the end of his probationary first year. The suit claims that his termination came as a result of whistleblowing efforts. He allegedly called Mingee out for manipulating Domini’s test scores in order to keep him from being promoted to engineer. Blair supervised the test and claimed that Domini outscored the competition; nevertheless, his test was confiscated and changed by Mingee. The final results ranked Domini at number three, instead of the number one position he needed to secure the promotion. The district’s Insurance Services Organization score downgrade in late 2012 is cited in the lawsuit as an indicator of health and safety conditions declining under the chief’s leadership. The plaintiffs claim that by not addressing the concerns they raised, the district’s score fell during an audit by ISO. The downgrade, according to the suit, resulted in higher insurance costs to CSFPD and the taxpayers. Mingee contends that the district’s costs have not increased due to the ranking, and said that he has no evidence of homeowners’ insurance costs rising either. ISO, he said, is “interested in how much water you can deliver to a fire and

how well you do that.” Workplace safety concerns fall under the purview of California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (better known as Cal-OSHA). Mingee said that the district has received no citations or registered complaints from Cal-OSHA. ISO audited the district in 2012, reassessing CSFPD’s Public Protection Classification for the first time in 22 years. The district was downgraded due to several issues, including discontinuation of its hydrant maintenance program and Company Fire Prevention programs, and insufficient training records and building occupancy pre-plans. These programs, Mingee said, had fallen off before he was hired as chief. Since the ISO audit, the district has renewed its efforts in each area found to be lacking, said Mingee. In regards to training, an area noted in the lawsuit for its deficiencies, Mingee said, “We have done the training, we just didn’t have good records of it.” Kelley Baker, president of the Carpinteria-Summerland Firefighters Association labor union, stated that the firefighter group is not involved in the lawsuit. Nonetheless, Baker said that that the CSFA has worked hard over past two years to inform the incumbent fire board of its concerns about the way the agency is being managed. “In doing so, we exhausted many of the avenues that we have to resolve these matters in house. Unfortunately, most of our concerns were ignored. As a result, this created the situation where two of our members had to go outside the agency to get resolution, which led to the lawsuit being filed.” The CSFPD board released a statement in support of the chief and in defense of the district. “The complaints are denied in their entirety, that we vigorously defend the lawsuit and that it is indeed unfortunate that these plaintiffs have chosen to smear the outstanding reputation of Chief Mingee, an honored and longtime public servant.” The district’s lawyer, Kevin Osterberg of Haight Brown and Bonesteel, will represent Mingee and CSFPD, and Mingee plans to secure his own counsel as well. The plaintiffs are represented by attorney Jonathan Miller of Nye, Peabody, Stirling, Hale and Miller.

Carpinteria commercial spaces filling up Status of 700 Linden and beyond By Peter Dugré

Currently 700 Linden Ave. is host to the Festival of Trees holiday fundraiser for Carpinteria Lions Club. With the calendar soon turning to 2014, it’s been nearly five years since the location, one of Linden Avenue’s largest and most visible spots, has seen a commercial tenant to fill in a glaring gap in the downtown retail sector. The explanation recently given by Terry Hickey Banks, who is part of the family behind building owner Hickey Brothers Land Co., was a mix between, it is complicated and it will be filled sooner than later. “It’s been a long process for our business because we have many stockholders in our family,” Banks said. “It’s not just my mom, sister and me.” The building was formerly occupied by Austin’s Homecenter until spring of 2009 and has since rotated between local service clubs for events and fundraisers. Banks said that until a tenant is found and the location is leased, it will remain available for community service events. Continuous requests to use the space have made it evident that Carpinteria needs a community center, Banks said. “We’re really trying to plod through what’s happening long term, not just in the next five years, but for the next generation,” Banks said of the family’s approach to landing a tenant for its space. “We feel pretty optimistic now that we have a game plan going forward.” The family is exploring whether to do an extensive remodel of the early 1900s structure or to do a complete rebuild. “It would take a lot of work, which is part of the reason it has sat empty,” she said. Whatever lands there, Banks said, “It’s really about trying to get it right for us and the community. It has to be right for community, or its never going to be right for us.”

Commercial real estate health: retail nearly full, but office lagging

he big hole in the local retail picture at 700 Linden Ave. represents a large portion of what is vacant. According to third quarter reports issued by Hayes Commercial Group, Carpinteria’s retail vacancy rate is at a five-year low of 2 percent, the pre-recession level. The other long-empty Linden location, 901 Linden Ave., has been remodeled and is nearly ready for the opening of Beach Bowls, a smoothie, bowls and gelato business. With the recent opening of Healthy Life in Casitas Plaza, the shopping center has reached 100 percent occupancy. Across Casitas Pass Road, however, vacancies abound where Blockbuster Video and

The city could really use more research and development space, as opposed to office, he said. Office spaces are the city’s weakness. “There’s a lot of office space available, and I don’t see that being backfilled any time soon,” Moll said. In all, there are 198,354 square feet of office space available, amounting to a 12 percent vacancy, by far the most for a city on Santa Barbara County’s South Coast. The total includes a yet-to-be-built 84,000-square-foot office at the Lagunitas Mixed-Use Development on Via Real. Moll said it’s hard to foresee a large business moving into town and eating up office vacancy in a mega deal. “You’ll get some singles and doubles, not the homerun,” he said. For example, Procore Technology, a construction software company, recently inked a deal to occupy 12,000 square feet of the vacated Clipper Windpower office building at 6309 Carpinteria Ave. For the city’s part, Silk said officials periodically tour local businesses like Nusil to figure out what could attract businesses to Carpinteria’s office space/ corporate headquarters spaces.

A reader sends a halo to all of the wonderful staff at Señor Frogs Restaurant for helping with Mr. Levy’s birthday celebration and for accommodating a large group on a short notice. “You guys are the best!” A reader sends a halo to Crazy Good Bread for its amazing customer service. “Thank you for finding one more loaf of challah in the back for our special needs daughter. You made her day!” A reader sends a halo to Millie Stauffer who I’m sure is in heaven for all the years she spent cracking jokes on the Peace Corner. A reader sends a halo to Eric Gregg, a CUSD Special Education aid, who has integrity and cares about his students. A reader sends a halo to everyone at Uncle Chen Restaurant for always being so kind to the reader and her daughter. “We both agree a bowl of soup is the best way to end a busy day.” A reader sends a halo to everyone that came out to support Summerland School at the Holiday Gift Fair. Another halo goes to Curious Cup and the Carpinteria Toy Company for hosting the fair. “We are so thankful for our local businesses and so appreciate their support for our school!” A reader sends a halo to the Carpinteria family that adopted a kitten named Fred from the Cats Cradle in Ventura on Dec. 1. “I was his foster dad. Fred is trained to come to a whistle and loves Temtation treats. I will miss him.

Pitchfork!” A reader sends a pitchfork to the local retailer who refused to accept a gift card because it was “more than one and one half years old.” “There was no visible date on the gift card or the card enclosure.” A reader sends a pitchfork to the front end manager at a local store for losing her temper with her co-worker. “I felt embarrassed for you; I won’t ever shop at that store again. You literally yelled in my ear.” A reader sends a pitchfork the local law enforcement for failing to handle a situation appropriately. “A well known local thief stole my property, and officers refused to act. After taking matters into my own hands, I was made to feel like the thief. Thanks for nothing but a huge headache.” A reader sends a pitchfork to people who allow their dogs to poop in yards or misbehave off leash. “May I suggest dog poop DNA matching and fines for off leash dogs. Carp has more than a few bad apples when it comes to dogs. Step up, city council.”

If it looks like a criminal and smells like a criminal...

A deputy spotting some suspicious activity on Dec. 2 at 12:48 a.m. on Via Real investigated to confirm his hunch. The allegedly shady behavior centered around a vehicle parked on the roadside with its interior light on but a jersey draped around it to dim the glow. Two men occupying the vehicle were immediately recognizable to the deputy as parolees. The next red flag came in the form of falsely affixed registration tags on the vehicle. A search of the parolees yielded multiple shaved vehicle keys, which are used to access vehicles to which the keys don’t belong. Also one of the subjects had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. The two men, ages 42 and 24, were arrested for possession of burglary tools. A woman who was with them was driven to downtown Carpinteria and released.

Under the influence of lyme disease

A man pulled over at 8th Street and Walnut Avenue on Nov. 30 at 3 p.m. for a burnt out center brake light was probed for being under the influence of drugs and was eventually cleared. The deputy immediately noticed the man’s dilated pupils among other symptoms of being under the influence of a stimulant. The man, 19, had his heart rate clocked at 134 and was escorted to the sheriff’s station for a urine test. The man denied any drug use and attributed any glitches in his physiology to his lyme disease diagnosis. His clean urine sang the same tune. He did however inform deputies upon his release from the temporary detention that he was prescribed a pharmaceutical cocktail by doctors trying to find the right combination of medication to treat his disease.

Pacifistic peeper

A man accused of slashing his neighbor’s tires categorically denied committing the crime of tire slashing, which he stated is violent and against his pacifistic principles; however, he reportedly admitted to peeping in the neighbor’s windows. The victim reported that all four of her tires had been slashed on Ash Avenue overnight between Dec. 1 and 2, and she suspected the neighbor, with whom she had a history of disagreement—likely related to him looking in her windows. She also had reported a similar vandalism just a few weeks ago. The accused said he was in bed at the time of the reported crime. He had just returned from a Thanksgiving getaway and hit the sack immediately. The victim pressed the peeping issue, which happened many months ago. She had brought it up with deputies when she reported the first vandalism and wished to press charges. The man reportedly admitted to looking in windows, and deputies filed the report with the district

attorney’s office but made no arrests.

Frame game

Following an investigation into an alleged watch theft on Arbol Verde Street on Nov. 26, deputies believed that the party reporting the theft had actually attempted to frame the accused. The resident had reported that workers from a cleaning agency had stolen a watch. According to the resident, the workers had arrived and were photographing rooms of the home in order to assess the situation, and sometime over the 15-minute period a valuable watch among a collection in the home’s bedroom was missing. A review of the photos revealed that the watch had in fact been in the bedroom only minutes before it went missing. The resident had gone back to the bedroom in order to collect the watches and take them because he was leery of leaving them behind with the cleaning crew. Deputies questioned the workers and they reportedly all came across as genuinely bewildered and miffed by the crime accusations. The manager stated that the crew has worked in sprawling Montecito estates and had never been accused of theft. He stood by the workers. He was suspicious of the resident’s obsession over and odd boasting about all of the valuables in the home. He had never seen anything like it, he said. A deputy searched the work truck and discovered the missing watch hidden among tools, a discovery that reportedly stunned the workers. A worker said he had seen the resident near the truck. The worker entered the truck to retrieve some tape, and when he exited the resident was curbside and startled the worker. At that point, the deputy turned the tables and questioned the residents. The deputy also informed them that making false accusations was a crime. Asked if he’d been outside during the 15-minute window, the resident reportedly said he could not recall. And the deputy noted the resident was not astounded by the new direction of the deputy’s questions. The resident said the issue of who was outside and when could easily be resolved by viewing surveillance footage positioned at the front of the home. The deputy said he’d be eager to have a look too. The residents attempted to access the footage but stated the system had not been recording. The deputy concluded that he believed the residents, for unknown reasons, had tried to set up the cleaning crew, possibly to get a discount. The report was forwarded to the district attorney’s office, but the deputy did not recommend pursuing charges.

It turns out, if you are looking for an environmentally friendly option, everyone’s favorite—a real tree—is actually the best choice. Tree farms grow these for a profit, and for each tree that is cut down, several more are planted. No tree farms cut down their entire stock at once.

converting carbon dioxide to oxygen, which reduces greenhouse gas. They also look and smell nice, which is an aesthetic bonus. Artificial trees are usually made of vinyl, a type of plastic that is difficult to recycle. The factories that make these trees are often supplied energy through burning coal, which is a large contributor to pollution. Because trees made out of synthetic materials are usually not recyclable, they end up in landfills when people are done with them. Artificial trees are also often imported from China, greatly increasing their overall carbon footprint. Now, I know some people are meticulous about storing things, so some artificial trees are probably used for many years before they are thrown away. Maybe you have a tree that isn’t real that you use every year and love. The ease of not having to select a tree or clean up needles each can make it an attractive option. But consider this: a real tree can be turned into mulch and reused on a garden or other landscaping, biodegrading into soil eventually. Speaking of mulch, recycling your real tree at the end of the season is easy. Local waste haulers will pick up trees free of charge after the holidays. Just set your tree out for collection on your regular green waste collection day and it will be taken care of. Make sure you don’t leave any ornaments, lights or other decoration on the tree though. Green waste, here in Carpinteria, is taken to a facility and either mulched or turned into soil. Nobody wants to end up with plastics or other foreign material in their potting soil. So if you love the smell of a real holiday tree but were maybe feeling guilty about purchasing one, clear your conscience. Enjoy the adventure of picking out the right tree with your family or friends for the holiday, knowing that not only is it guilt free, you are actually helping preserve open space and reduce pollution overall. Erin Maker is the Environmental Coordinator for the City of Carpinteria. She studied biology after discovering her love of nature and science while growing up in Vermont. Always interested in improving water quality and recycling, she currently oversees the City’s Watershed Management and Solid Waste Programs.

Carpinteria snowbird shops her book to Hollywood

Part-time Carpinterian Josephine Waitstill Swan is shopping her memoir, “The Right Car: A Hitchhiker’s Hymn to Divine Humanity,” to Hollywood during her current stay in her adopted winter hometown. Swan hopes that it will get picked up and made into a film. The book traces Swan’s journey riding her thumb from Montana to Maine in 2011, following a period where she found herself broke and friendless. In the book, Swan switches between narrative and meditative tales while recounting the hardships of the road, kindness of strangers and her conviction that whatever happens is meant to be. The book can be purchased for $12.95 through Amazon or $2.99 as an e-book. For more information on Swan, visit WarmedbytheFire.com.

Author Josephine Waitstill Swan penned the memoir “The Right Car: A Hitchhiker’s Hymn to Divine Humanity.”

Richter students perform Holiday Recital

Music students trained by Marti Richter gathered for their annual holiday Recital on Sunday, Dec. 8, in Richter’s studio on Cravens Lane. Around 65 people including family and friends were entertained with holiday favorites. According to Richter, some of the highlights included a piano solo of the “ukrainian Bell Carol” by Mykola Leontovich and a vocalist accompanying herself on the guitar singing “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town” by J. Fred Coots. Owing to the cold weather, the show was moved inside for an intimate performance that came off well with students lining the studio’s spiral staircase, Richter commented. The next recital will be in May.

For the birds CHRISTIE BOYD

carpe carpinteria Knock knock. Who’s there? The woodpeckers! That’s who. They are in a full frenzy right now. We have acorn woodpeckers who typically are seen sporadically over the course of the year, but with the bumper crop of acorns littering the ground below the oak trees, they have arrived en mass. They are clownish in their coloration but tenacious in their need to eat and store acorns. When there are acorns everywhere, there are birds everywhere. The wealth of wild birds in trees, on the ground, on the power poles ... how to attract them to your living space is the subject of this month’s column. Birds are not much different than humans in their basic needs: food, water, shelter and protection from harm. In the case of our avian friends, if you want to invite them to share your space on the planet, in your domain, think about these elements as you plan your outdoor spaces.

Wild birds live in their natural region for a reason; they are able to live their life cycle with the fauna and flora that nature provided for that area. If you want to attract birds to your neck of the woods, then use that as your guideline. Plant natives. In planting native plants, you will be less reliant on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, as natives are acclimated to the conditions of the surrounding area. With the successful growth of your native plantscape, wild birds will be a part of your ecology without much effort on your part. Plant your landscape in layers of height. Different birds have different foraging habits, and by planting in different heights, you are providing the appropriate conditions for different species to survive. California towhees are ground lovers; they will often even build their nests in the dirt or weeds, camouflaged by their dull brown color. Other species of birds prefer shrubs and bushes as their domain while the vast majority of wild birds love the branches of trees for residence and rest from flight. In order to satisfy birds’ need for protection, allow for areas of density or thatching in your garden so that the ground lovers and low fliers will have safety from predatory bird species such as hawks. By creating safety and sanctuary, you will encourage permanent residents who will nest and become a lifelong “neighbor” rather than a fly-bynight migratory interloper.

Another suggestion is to plant with a bird’s food requirements in mind. Plant with the idea of spring flowers and nectars that will encourage insects for birds to eat. Summer fruit trees will satisfy a large variety of wild birds’ appetites, while the seeds and nuts of fall should help most species in eating and storing for winter. Water is hugely important and, with our current drought conditions, of prime import for the successful integration of birds to your home. Pedestal birdbaths that have a lip for the bird to perch on are a huge plus in attracting and maintaining relationships with local birds. If you have cats, make sure the basin is up off of the ground so the unsuspecting bird doesn’t become lunch

for your feline friend. Fountains and moving water attract a bird’s attention to the water and help to keep bacteria out of any stagnant water. Good since 1912 Carpinterians areTimes lucky to have an abundance and diversity of birds that live here permanently and also those that stop in on their migratory routes. To encourage them to your house, skip the neon “vacancy” sign and put out the welcome mat with a landscape that suits all their basic needs.

Boys basketball carries Warrior girls basketball high expectations into looks to compete for new season Frontier League BY PETER DUGRÉ

BY PETER DUGRÉ

The competitive bunch of guys playing basketball at Carpinteria High School this season likes to get a little better every day, an encouraging sign for coach Johnny Ward who sees this year ’s team as one that can “change the face of Carpinteria High School basketball.” “ T h i s g ro u p re a l l y wants to win, and that’s going to translate well to games,” Ward said. The last couple of seasons the team has shown promise before fizzling out in Frontier League play. Returning players will include seniors Duncan Gordon, Ian Craddock and Ruben Garcia, along with Bryson Frazer. Gordon and Craddock provide some sturdy bodies for inside battles but also have the added versatility to handle and shoot the ball. Frazer and Garcia are playmakers who like BILL SWING to get out and run, which Warrior senior Ian Craddock contributes Ward said is part of the versatility to a deep roster looking to make team’s game plan this waves in Frontier League this season. season. “We’re a lot deeper. There’s talent on the bench, which is nice. We can turn the pace up and use all the guys to keep our legs fresh,” commented Ward. The team adds point guards Rayshaun Moore and Omar Miranda to the varsity roster. “They’re a two-headed monster at point,” Ward said. They led the team in scoring in the season-opening victory over Hueneme High School. Other players adding depth are newcomers Nathan Smolnikar and Noah Reed along with junior big man Mason Picerni. Following an extended football season, the team has yet to have a single practice where all 12 players have been together, but the components are all there to change some losses to wins in Frontier League this season. Playing with just an eight-man roster, the Warriors took down Hueneme High School in the season opener behind big games by Moore and Miranda. The Warriors won 59-51. Even with reduced numbers, the Warriors closed out the game to collect the win. To keep this squad focused on tapping into its potential, Ward reminds the team every day that CHS has not won a league championship since 1999, and this should break that spell. Bashore the Holiday A big test for the Warriors2013 will Jim be defending homeCage court Classic in the Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic between Dec. 16 and Dec. 21.

Carpinteria High School girls basketball is a team that “likes to get after it” in its 2013-2014 edition, according to coach Dan Mercer. Led by senior captain Hannah Galsterer, the team has just three returning players, including sophomores Maddie Cleek and Macey Frazer, but has one of the most talented classes of incoming freshmen Mercer has coached. Though Cleek, a point guard, and Frazer, a post player, are just sophomores, they’re shouldering a lot of the responsibilities this season. “(Galsterer) is doing a terrific job leading and gaining the respect and trust of her teammates,” Mercer said. He also commented, “It’s fun to have a group that doesn’t know how young they are.” The team will introduce three juniors to the varsity lineup: Sienna Caudillo, Rubi Albarran and Lupe Vargas. The freshmen joining their elders are Tori Kelley, Harmony Reed, Monique Sanchez and Annalisa DeAlba. The squad will battle in a tightly contested Frontier League. In order to climb the standings, the Warriors will have to knock off favorites Santa Paula High School and La Reina High School.

Locals complete Spartan Spring

Carpinterians Michele Banks and Alex Serrano joined a team of eight to run, swim, climb, jump and crawl through the 3-plus mile Spartan Sprint in Malibu on Dec. 7. The trail course leads contestants through over 15 obstacles, including climbing walls, crawling under barbed wire, climbing ropes, jumping fire and swimming in freezing water. Failing an obstacle landed contestants 30 burpee penalties. The team braved the chill to power through the course.

The Factory Racing truck rolled across the finish line ahead of all Class 7 entries after 35 hours of crossing 883 miles of unforgiving and treacherous terrain in this year’s Baja 1,000 between Nov. 14 and 17. The rough road to first place included multiple occurrences of winching out of ravines, replacing a transmission and getting the flipped vehicle back onto its tires. Laurie Chamlee wrote that the team also sputtered on fumes for several miles over the finest silt powder—a stretch of 20 miles that took over three hours to traverse. Of 251 teams entering the race, only 116 crossed the finish line in under the 36 hours allotted for the course. The Factory racing team includes many representatives of the Chamlee family who own Carpinteria’s The Factory Appliance, Inc.

Cate School

Girls soccer

Dec. 4 – Cate girls soccer played to a 0-0 tie in its season opener at home against Villanova Prep. Ram goalkeeper Emma Liberman earned her first shutout and made several clutch saves against Villanova pressure. Sweeper Lucia Johnson also played well keeping Villanova off the scoreboard. Veterans Ellen Lempres, Jasmine Paz and Fernanda Pett modeled the hustle and determination that will be essential to this team’s success, said coach Lisa Holmes. She added that the team has not been together long and is still developing its touch.

Boys soccer

Dec. 4 - Cate boys soccer opened its season with a 2-0 win over visiting San Marcos High School. The Rams struck early on a penalty kick by senior Leighton BrilloSonnino in the eighth minute. Though the Rams controlled the ball, they would not net another goal before half. San Marcos threatened several times in the second half, including a point-blank shot that sailed wide. But the Rams continued to pressure and counterattack, and in the 63rd minute senior Andrew Robbins played a ball to senior Tyler Douglas’ feet at the top of the box. From there, Douglas nimbly slipped through to senior Matthew Firestone who rocketed a low shot into the far corner for a 2-0 lead. Cate keeper Keller Mochel had three saves in earning the shutout.

Girlfriend Guru

By RIVEN BARTON, PhD. rivendruien@gmail.com

Family feud Dear Girlfriend Guru, I know that for many people the holidays bring up visions of curling up by the fire, presents and steaming cups of something good, but for me, the holidays bring up anxiety, self-doubt and depression. I’m single, a little overweight, in my late 20s and generally OK with myself and my life. That is until I go home and see my family. I grew up in the Midwest in a very conservative and domineering family. As soon as I was 18, I got in my car and drove all the way west, eventually ending up here in Carpinteria. But once a year I have to go back to my family’s house for my annual holiday shaming. The questions start about my love life: Why don’t I have a boyfriend? Which leads into my weight: “Maybe if you just lose some weight…” I get diet suggestions, questions about self-care and general disapproval of my entire being. Don’t even get me started about politics! I love my family, I really do, but I wish they could just accept me as I am rather than criticizing absolutely everything that I’m doing. Signed, Just Ain’t Gonna Take It Dear Ain’t Gonna Take It, Well let’s face it. You are not the first person to be triggered by your family around the holidays. In fact, it’s a rare one indeed that can navigate the treacherous waters of holiday family gatherings unscathed. That said, there are tactics to help with your family. It sounds as though you love your family and don’t want to stop visiting them, so instead you need to find ways of not letting their comments get under your skin. First of all, it’s important to try to remember that they love you. As messed up as their expression of it sometimes is. Their “concern” for you may actually be their way of checking

in on you and saying they are interested in your life. Now that you know where they are coming from you can choose either to confront them or ignore them. Let’s look at the pros and cons of both. Confrontation Pros: You finally get to speak up and tell your family how their comments actually make you feel. By speaking up you can set boundaries and perhaps get them to change their behavior in the future. Cons: You may end up in a huge, blowout fight, disrupting the occasion for everyone. Ignore it Pros: You learn to just accept your family for who and what they are, lovable but insensitive people. You don’t take it personally or seriously. Cons: You may not stick up for yourself when they really do step out of line, and you may not be letting them know how you actually want to be treated. I think the best possible solution is a combination of both. Don’t sweat the small stuff. They are going to be who they are, and even though they may not like your shirt or your taste in music, it’s not the end of the world. However, if the issues are deeper, they really should be addressed. If your family’s comments on your love life or your weight really get to you, it’s important to set some boundaries and tell them that it really hurts your feelings. Families and holidays make for treacherous territory. Don’t let it affect who you know you are. Call a friend to vent, take a deep breath and remember it will all be over soon! Good luck, G. G.

Nomuras get celebrity treatment in Chile

Rotarians in Olmue, Chile, rolled out the red carpet for Carpinterians Wade and Roxanne Nomura, who helped establish the newly minted Valle Rotary Club. Wade was inducted as an honorary member, and the Nomuras were greeted by the mayor and hosted as special guests at the National Cueca Dance Competition. The newsmakers were also featured in the newspaper and on the radio. Olmue officials picked the brain of Wade—also a Carpinteria City Councilman—about some of Carpinteria’s ecological protection practices. Above, Wade and Roxanne are joined by Vivian Martin and German De Pablo of the Valle Rotary Club.
