Local landlord talks Carpinteria opportunities By Peter Dugré

At the city’s January meeting to plan its priorities for the coming year, much of what was on planners’ plates revolved around one person, Victor Schaff. The investor, landlord and proprietor of S&S Seeds had his nose in so much of Carpinteria’s ongoing land transfers and development ideas that Mayor Brad Stein CoUrTeSy PHoTo quipped, “He’s got to take off the Monopoly Victor Schaff is set to Man’s hat. It’s some- close escrow on the body else’s turn.” Salvation Army property However coincidental in the coming weeks. it might be that Schaff was in the vortex of the discussion, it’s apparent his eyes are zeroed in on some of Carpinteria’s biggest commercial transactions and opportunities. “I’m always looking for an opportunity. I live here, and I like the city,” explained Schaff in a recent conversation, while downplaying the flurry of recent moves. Schaff’s more recent interests center around an irony. He owns S&S Seeds, a company that sells seeds to public agencies and developers for big projects, but the property where the company sits—on Carpinteria Avenue adjacent to Viola Fields (the old 7Up building)—does not belong to Schaff. The local land baron owns Venoco’s offices; he bought them last year. He owns the six buildings at Carpinteria Business Park that are 100 percent occupied by lynda.com. He leases space for his own business. The quest to find a home for S&S led him first to throw out an offer for the Tee Time property on Carpinteria Avenue. The property is held up in bankruptcy court in Nevada, and the City of Carpinteria has moved to acquire the land for $1.5 million, the amount owed in back taxes to Santa Barbara County. The city’s bid is a long shot, given that anyone can swoop in and make an offer. Schaff got cold feet and backed out of escrow. “I dropped it. I was looking into development potential and found there was too much risk and time involved to determine what could be built there,” he said. Considering the hurdles to development, the city may stand a decent chance at acquiring the property. “In my lifetime, I don’t think I’ll see anything developed there,” Schaff said. “I believe there would be big opposition from the public,” he said. “I’m not telling

Cate’s Sophie Maes sank the game’s first goal, pictured, but the teams traded goals for three quarters. Senior four-year starter Caroline Montgomery nailed a penalty shot in the waning seconds of the third quarter to put the Rams up 7-6, and neither team scored in the fourth.

Studies recommend new Summerland fire station By LeA BoyD

Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District’s efforts to relocate the Summerland station, a project that has been waylaid for the last year, appears to be returning to its original course. A professional fire station location analysis and a citizen ad-hoc committee on fire station improvements came to at least one common conclusion this month: the district should purchase the property available on Lillie Avenue and Temple Street and construct a new fire station. The board, which is down one member due to the Jan. 29 passing of longtime Director Bob Duncan, received the results of the location study by consultant Diamante Partners as well as the recommendations of the citizens committee during its Feb. 18 meeting. Diamante used call response times throughout the district—most of which fall within the optimal fiveminute range—to determine that the existing stations are in ideal locations. “your forefathers did a really good job putting fire stations in good locations,” said consultant Jeff Meston. By factoring in the state of the current Summerland

station, which has been deemed seismically unsound and too small, among other deficiencies, and the dearth of alternative real estate suitable for a new station, Diamante concluded that moving forward with the proposed station, just a stone’s throw from the existing station, is the district’s best course of action. The Mosquito and Vector Management District, which owns the proposed property and operates out of the existing building there, has already agreed to the sale of the site to CSFPD. Additionally, the County of Santa Barbara has approved of the station design, and the Summerland community has embraced it. Until last year, the fire board was steadily moving toward a bond measure to ask voters to cover the costs of the $5 to $6 million Summerland station, as well as a more recently proposed $5 to $6 million Carpinteria station rebuild. Plans hit a snag when two new members were elected to the fire board in 2012 and began questioning several of the assumptions on which the dual station plans were founded.

Collision kills wrong way driver

Join our Arts & Crafts

PRESCHOOL PLAY DATE! OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL SCHOOL

A Newbury Park man driving southbound in the northbound lanes of Highway 101 on Feb. 17 perished from injuries he sustained as the result of two collisions with other vehicles. The incident took place just north of Santa Monica Road at 1:07 a.m. Wrong-way driver Timothy A. Morhar, 44, was at the wheel of an Infiniti I30 when it collided with a Nissan Altima then continued down the highway out of control before colliding with a Honda Odyssey containing a family from Goleta. Both the Honda and the Infiniti caught fire. The four occupants of the Honda, including two children, were able to escape the car before it was engulfed in flames, but Morhar remained trapped inside the vehicle and sustained fatal injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol. The driver of the Honda sustained major injuries, but injuries to the other members of his family were listed as minor. The two occupants of the Nissan, both residents of Goleta, also sustained only minor injuries. The CHP is investigating whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the collision.

Facelift planned for Shepard Place Shops

The Towbes Group, owner of Shepard Place Shops, has entered the city permitting process to remodel building facades and replace landscaping throughout the shopping center. Carpinteria’s Architectural Review Board reviewed the Casitas Pass Road project on Feb. 13 and provided overall support for the plans, which include minor changes to buildings and replacement of lawn and other landscaping with drought tolerant agaves, succulents and ground cover. The center has remained largely unchanged since it was built in the 1970s, and the proposed remodel would simply replaster the front façade and side walls and replace the wood finish on the exterior columns with plaster. Members of the ARB encouraged the applicant to move potentially dangerous thorny plants away from sidewalks to avoid harming pedestrians, particularly students from the nearby middle school. The majority of the plaza’s existing trees would be maintained. Community Development Department Director Jackie Campbell will consider the scope of the project and decide whether it requires a review by the planning commission or simply staff approval.

Habitat for Humanity has set its sights on the empty lot at 4949 Sawyer Ave. for the construction of two, two-story buildings containing three condominiums. The city’s Architectural Review Board completed a conceptual review of the project at its Feb. 13 meeting, offering its general support for the design and architectural compatibility with the surrounding neighborhood. The proposal for the 6,950 square-foot property includes three, three-bedroom units, as well as one garage parking space, two covered carport spaces and one uncovered space. Some neighbors raised concerns about parking, given that seven spaces are required for such a project, and the ARB asked Habitat to consider various parking options when it comes back to the city with revised plans. Now that Habitat for Humanity, which is a nonprofit affordable housing organization, has the ARB’s conceptual feedback, the next step will be to complete a formal application.

Board to appoint replacement director

The law requires the fire board to appoint a replacement for Boardmember Duncan in the next 60 days, or, should the board fail to fill the seat, the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors can select the fifth board member. The appointment will be publically noticed, and residents interested in temporarily filling the seat can apply through the district. As stated by the Brown Act, board members are prohibited from discussing the applicants with one another outside of their public meetings. “It’s not going to be a backroom deal,” said Boardmember Craig Price. “The discussion and dialogue will occur one month from now at our board meeting.” Given the magnitude of the nearfuture decisions facing the board—such as whether or not the district will move forward with a $12 million bond measure on the November ballot—Price said he hopes to appoint someone “who can get up to speed very quickly.”

It’s a small city to be absorbing such a large amount of square footage.”

and Bill Taff, along with several residents of the district, asked for more information to judge the need to for a new Summerland fire station at the proposed site. Remodeling the Carpinteria station, which is in better condition than its sister station but still aging and lacking modern facilities, also deserved more scrutiny, the new board members said. Last fall, in an effort to improve clarity on the issue, the board decided to collect input from a citizens committee and contract the location study. Diamante was hired, and a group of 12 district residents chosen to represent a cross section of the community began meeting to consider how the district should move forward. After several meetings, the citizens group unanimously agreed that, first and foremost, the Summerland station needs addressing and “time is of the essence.” The committee also recommended, by consensus, that the project be funded through a general obligation bond; relocating to the proposed site would be the best option; the committee should provide input if a firm is hired to complete voter polling; funding for a Carpinteria station should be included if a bond is put before voters; the proposed Summerland site should be purchased as soon as possible to secure the property and reduce bond debt; a cost of construction analysis should be completed before the bond amount is fixed; the scope of the Carpinteria project should be better defined before the bond goes before voters; and all parties involved in the district—the board, administrators and labor groups—should be united in support of the bond measure. Margaret Baker, Padaro Lane resident and vocal critic of the district’s dual station plans, served on the citizens committee and addressed the board after the group’s recommendations were announced. She noted that the committee had based its conclusions on information provided mainly by Fire Chief Mike Mingee and that the Diamante study had not been unveiled by the time the committee made its recommendations. “I feel somewhat irresponsible voting on these things without having seen the actual study,” she said. The Diamante study concluded that though the Summerland station is the top priority for replacement, the Carpinteria station should be remodeled in order to meet seismic standards and contemporary demands for space, safety and training facilities. In the district’s long-term future, Diamante suggested adding a fire squadron in the Santa Claus Lane region, which would reduce the response time in the area between the Carpinteria and Summerland stations.

the Crushcakes bakery property in downtown Carpinteria last year. Mayor Stein’s “Monopoly man” remark might have been spot on. Schaff, however, downplayed the moves. His actions were not a concerted effort. He explained, S&S never filled up its Carpinteria home in the nine years it has been there. Business slowed when the economy took a dive. The seeds are not in as high demand since construction dropped off. “I don’t anticipate the economy going up like it did before the recession,” Schaff said. He sought a smaller headquarters in Carpinteria and began finding other opportunities. In the long run, he said, he might be done acquiring Carpinteria property, particularly offices. Locally, the office vacancy rate hovers around 15 percent, making it the weakest component of the commercial market, according to Schaff. He pointed to the vacant Microsoft building behind Albertsons as an example of how hard it has become to fill office space in the city. What makes Carpinteria attractive is its position close to the workforce residing in Ventura, Schaff said, but some busi-

Water District declares a drought emergency Customers asked to reduce use by 20 percent

SUBMITTED BY CARPINTERIA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT Without a dramatic reduction in customer use of water, enabling the district to extend the use of its available water supplies, your Water Board may have no choice but to propose a rationing program by the end of this year, if not sooner. No one wants this to happen. We need to change our ways. The drought has dramatically intensified: • Governor Brown on Jan. 17, 2014 declared a statewide Drought Emergency. • The County of Santa Barbara declared a Drought Emergency on Jan. 21. • On Jan. 31 the California Department of Water Resources announced there would be no new State Water deliveries this year, a first in its history if the declaration is made final on May 1. • Lake Cachuma, the district’s primary source of water, has dramatically declined to something less than a two-year supply. • Looking back from January, customers have used the most water in a 12-month period since October of 2000, placing a much greater demand on shrinking water supplies. As a result, on Feb. 12 your Water Board declared a Stage 1 Drought Emergency, requesting customers reduce their water use by 20 percent. On the supply side, the district has taken major steps to beef up its groundwater production capability. The district now has a smooth running El Carro Well capable of producing up to 1,500 acre feet per year. With a new stainless steel Headquarters Well scheduled to come on line in March, groundwater production could go up another 1,700 AF per year. And steps are being taken to bring the Lyons and Smillie wells back into production that could add another several hundred acre feet of annual production capacity. But this would still leave the district short by 1,000 AF of water in a normal water year without drought conditions. By August of 2014 the district will have utilized 2,058 AF of state water since January of 2013, the most it’s ever used in such a short time frame. But what’s to come with the State Water Project and no new deliveries? At its Feb. 26 meeting, your board will consider participating in a Central Coast Water Authority (CCWA) program utilizing a broker to find and help acquire marketed water outside of the Department of Water Resources State Water Dry

Year Program. It would utilize the State Water Project to wheel water to Lake Cachuma through CCWA conveyance facilities for use in the Carpinteria Valley. But this cannot yet be counted on. Next water year, which for the district begins on Oct. 1, 2014, the State Water Project could become a major source of supply for Carpinteria Valley and other south coast water agencies if Northern California were to experience several substantial storms like the one during the first week of February, which produced more precipitation in one week than occurred in all of 2013. This would be most fortuitous if Lake Cachuma should not realize any significant recharge in next year’s so-called rainy season. Of course no one is counting on this happening. It’s just a possibility. The drought could continue in the north just as it might here in the Carpinteria Valley and Lake Cachuma area. The district will participate in the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board’s construction of an Emergency Pumping System at Lake Cachuma for use by early September. This pumping system will enable the district to utilize water stored in Lake Cachuma below the level of the gravity feed intake into the Tecolote Tunnel, extending the life of the Cachuma supply into the coming 2014-15 (hopefully) rainy season. But what then if the rains do not come and the drought continues? The board and staff are taking actions now to promote and campaign for substantial water conservation. A dramatic 20 percent reduction by customers is needed now to ensure that we can live within our remaining Cachuma supplies and limited groundwater resources. And staff is keeping an eye out for any available state and federal aid to assist. Please call the district at 684-2816 x116 for a free water use check-up and advice on how to reduce your water use. The district’s website, cvwd.net, also remains an ongoing source of information about the drought and conservation tips. Your board’s Drought Management Committee comprised of Directors June Van Wingerden and Alonzo Orozco continues to meet with district staff every second and fourth Monday at 12:30 p.m. at 1301 Santa Ynez Ave. to discuss and plan for next steps in this drought, including the possible Stage 2 Drought Emergency declaration to address a shortage of water and require rationing by customers. Customers are encouraged and always welcome to attend these public “bring your own lunch” meetings.

Remembering Daisy Merrick

It was a Fourth of July some years ago. I was with the family at backside Rincon. The Merricks were next to us. It was one of those very rare days, hot winds, perfect waves, flawless aqua green water. It’s one of those days you don’t know will happen until it happens. You show up early with a few bottles of water and a bag of chips and before you know it, it’s sunset. The family is crusty, the kids are starving but nobody wants to leave and you just have to stay a little more. As we’re packing up, Britt asks if we can spare any liquid provisions. We hand over our waters and Britt graciously accepts, knowing he just averted potential anarchy from his parched children, Daisy and Isaiah. But to my surprise, I reach into our icebox and pull out a gem and hand it to Daisy and Isaiah. Isaiah is still very young and it takes him a moment to read the label and realize the prize he and his sister hold, a sweating bottle of ice-cold root beer. Daisy says, “We have to find a bottle opener” ready to share with her brother, whom she obviously adores. This is a moment I will remember forever; the glow of a hopelessly happy child’s eyes when mystified by something as simple as a cold root beer on hot day. That is how I will always remember Daisy. And I believe that is how Daisy remembers herself; a girl loving life, surfing with her dad, being kissed by her loving mother on her salty forehead, sharing a root beer with her brother, oblivious to anything but the happiness of being with her family, surrounded by those she loves, with not a care in the world. That was Daisy’s moment.

The Summerland stepchild

The recent Coastal View News article on school building deficiencies makes no mention of the most deficient campus, Summerland. Summerland students, with an insufficient play area, are subject to the noise and fumes of a freeway only 150 feet away, a situation that will worsen with the construction of a third lane. In 2008, a group of Summerland

parents came up with a way to solve all of this, an economically practical plan for moving the school up Valencia Road to the district-owned Whitney property. The administration trashed this proposal before the board with false analogies to the difficulties of building on the Toro Canyon site. Approximately 23 percent of the 1995 $17.5 million bond issue is being paid for by the Summerland district. As the result of a public records act request, I have a complete list of the expenditures made with this $17.5 million, and although site information is incomplete, I cannot find that any of this money was spent on the Summerland School. Will Summerland area residents allow themselves to be suckered again?

Royce D Stauffer Carpinteria

Developing a drought battle plan

I am wondering what motivated Carpinteria Valley Water District to mail a water conservation survey asking whether we find water conservation important, and do we agree with findings. Why not instead educate the public about present and future water conditions based on our current knowledge? Address how with a little thought and kindness, which most Carpinterians have, we can stop wasting water. Here are some suggestions: When we need to repair or replace our driveways (public and private) we can make them permeable, so the water will percolate into the soil thereby reducing usage and your monthly bill. Suggest that restaurants ask if you want water with ice or not. Replace grass with drought resistant ground covers, thereby reducing maintenance, pesticides and costs again. Our city should provide us with an opportunity to purchase rain barrel collectors and mulch containers. All public buildings should start collecting rainwater as a standard requirement, which in turn can be used to address water needs. Take a look around and see how else you can protect your earth for yourself and others. Try it, it’s good for your health and will make you smile.

Summerland’s water woes Some time ago, the Summerland Water District threw in the towel and joined the Montecito Water District. There were good reasons. Costs for maintaining such a petite district were high, and Summerland’s sole water source was Lake Cachuma, whereas big brother Montecito had Jameson Lake, a bit of tunnel water and some rumored groundwater. Jameson Lake is now silted over and whatever groundwater there was has been sucked up by a billion blades of grass. With Lake Cachuma looking more like a hog wallow than a water source, the Montecito district—our district—says it will run out of water by July unless desperate measure are taken. Desperate measures so far are calls to cut back water usage by 30 percent across the board, and this week the water board announced an allocation system. The rationale for this system is contained in a 23-page document, with graphs, released last week. And yesterday general manager Tom Mosby was scheduled to address an emergency meeting called by the Summerland Citizens Association. The bare fact is that the Montecito Water District has only 5,300 acre feet left for the rest of the year (vs. 6,500 AF in a normal rain year). Single family residences make up 94 percent of all accounts and use 74 percent of the water. This week the district was set to adopt a multi-tier rate system, with water to be billed at escalating rates based on use. Single family users will be restricted to 25 hundred cubic feet (HCF) per month, with the possible addition of 112 HCF (per year?) for “non-essential outdoor uses.” I’m still trying to figure this one out. In my opinion lawns should be the first to go. They’re a fluky artifact from our English forbears and their extravagant, nature-built emerald carpets. We don’t have natural lush lawn conditions here, but we love them all the same. The only big lawn I know of in Summerland is the one at Lookout Park. Without that stretch of green, the park would be a scabby bit of dusty blufftop, so I’m hoping the county can find a way to use reclaimed water to keep it green. They aren’t at present; there’s no infrastructure for it, according to Parks Operations Manager Jeff Lindgren. Water envy during shortages is inevitable. There’s already grumbling in town about the emerald landscaping over the hill. Those two golf courses? They suck down a combined 62,676 HCF a year. Remember the last severe drought we had and the case of Harold Simmons, the billionaire Montecito lawn lover who didn’t think the rules should apply to him? He kept his acres green and paid the $20,000 in penalties without blinking an eye.

Water envy is contagious. People will start ratting on their neighbors for washing their cars in the driveway, daytime lawn watering, leaky sprinklers and sprinklers in general, which lose a lot of water in the air. There will be a run on efficient drip systems and lines. Howls will go up when someone tries to pull a “Harold Simmons” again. Fair’s fair, we’ll say. Don’t ask us to stop flushing our toilets so someone else can keep his hedges green. We do what we can to cut back 30 percent. Install low-flow toilets and showers (and take short showers), flush less frequently, don’t let the water run during tooth brushing, launder less often. My husband and I are thinking about installing a gray water system—hoses hooked up to washer and sink, and we’re catching shower and sink water in buckets to water plants. And, hey, we have a rain barrel. During that first puny rain, it caught the roof water and filled up. We ran a hose from it to water the plants in our garden. The second rain half-filled the barrel, and we’ll give that to the plum tree. Not that it’s enough. When water is plentiful we take it for granted. Let it flow. The city of Sacramento doesn’t even have water meters, for heaven’s sake! There’s nothing nicer than the sight, sound and smell of clean flowing water. Only during scarcity do we give our water miracle a second thought. Where it comes from, how every drop is clean enough for drinking. You wouldn’t use precious bottled water to flush the toilet, but you don’t think a thing about using the tap’s clean, potable water for that purpose. It’s not just plants that are thirsty; it’s animals, too. We have two birdbaths for thirsty fliers. For the ground dwellers, snakes, lizards, bunnies, mice, we’re advised to put out shallow bowls or basins. A couple of months ago, before the first rain, my husband opened the rain barrel to find a very large gopher snake coiled in the bottom, just its head and nose held above a couple inches of water. We figure it smelled the water, crawled up the overflow hose to the top of the barrel, fell in and was trapped. Good thing Roger found it then. A decayed snake in the rain barrel would have been a really rotten thing to discover. One good thing: The upside of topsyturvy weather—fresh strawberries while the East is buried in snow.

Roy Frederick Olsen 8/13/1925 – 2/7/2014

Roy Frederick Olsen went to be with our Lord on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, surrounded by his loving family. Roy was born on Aug. 13, 1925 to Herbert and Gladys Olsen in Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital. The second of seven children, Roy grew up attending local schools and graduated from Santa Barbara High School. He served in the U.S. Army in the occupational forces in Japan at the end of World War II. Roy always enjoyed working in agriculture. Universities and other institutions would often contact him for advice regarding crop and cattle projects. I vividly remember him telling me that he loved planting things and watching God make them grow. Roy met Norma Jane Greer while working in Malibu, and they were married in 1953. Roy and Norma moved to Santa Barbara where their first daughter, Deborah, was born. They later moved to Maria Ygnacia Ranch where their second daughter, Cynthia, was born. After a move to a neighboring ranch, Roy accepted a position managing Rancho Monte Alegre in Carpinteria, where both girls graduated from high school. Roy and Norma then moved to Rancho San Carlos in Santa Barbara. They had been married for 39 years when our dear mother, Norma, passed away. Roy retired and moved to Ventura where he married Marylou Decker in 1994. Always a cowboy at heart, Roy raised his girls with a love of animals, a respect for nature, a strong work ethic and the belief that honesty is a requirement in life. (“If you never lie, you never have to try to remember what you told someone,” he once told me). He never hesitated to help anyone, whether they asked or he volunteered assistance. I remember once stopping and helping someone at the side of a road. It turned out to be a greater need than it appeared at the time, and he told me afterward, “God tells you when to stop.” Roy is survived by his wife of 20 years, Marylou; his daughters, Cindy (John) Ferguson of Ventura, and Debbie (John) Pascaloff of Keswick, Va.; his sister, Kathi Krystal (Bob Buswell) of Seaside, Calif.; grandchildren, Jessica Macias (Carlos Rodriquez) and Alex (Amber) Macias; great-grandchildren, Isaiah and Jasmine Estrada and Bailey Macias and numerous nieces and nephews. Roy was preceded in death by his first wife Norma, and his siblings, John, Clara, Art, Anne and David. Roy will be greatly missed for his love, his sense of humor, his advice and his knowledge. The world will be a much smaller place without him. Daddy, we miss you so much and look forward to the time when we all are together again. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 9 a.m. at Charles Carroll Funeral Home, 15 Teloma Dr., Ventura, CA (805-642-8134). In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite charity in Roy’s memory.

Edna Ruth “Eddi” Hastings 12/31/1918 – 2/14/2014

Edna Ruth “Eddi” Hastings, born Dec. 31, 1918, passed away peacefully at 95 years of age on Feb. 14, 2014. Eddi was born in Kentucky but grew up in Nashville, Tenn. After graduating from high school, she spent a year at the Chicago Art Institute. She then enrolled at Vanderbilt University where she met her future husband, William Paul Hastings. After graduation they married. The war broke out and Bill enlisted in the army. Eddi thoroughly enjoyed the role of an officer’s wife and looked upon their 30 moves as adventures. They lived all over the United States as well as numerous overseas postings including Germany, Belgium, Korea and Okinawa. After being sent to Vietnam numerous times, Bill decided to retire from the Army, achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. In 1966 they chose Carpinteria for their permanent home. Bill passed away in 1986 and Eddi rekindled her artistic talent and became involved in the local art scene. She was a member of the Santa Barbara Art Association and served as president. She was a very gifted artist, and her award winning paintings were hung in many galleries in town. One of the most gratifying events later in her life was attending, along with her entire family, the graduation of her oldest granddaughter, Michelle, from Vanderbilt University exactly 50 years after her own graduation. Eddi is survived by her son, William Hartwell Hastings, and his wife, Sandy; her grandson William Keith Hastings and his fiancée Rachel; granddaughters Michelle Hastings Doyle and Jessica Richardson; and great-granddaughters Lauren and Lindsay Doyle. She was predeceased by her daughter, Frances Small, in 2009. Services will be held at a later date as it was Eddi’s wish to be buried with her husband at Arlington National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in Eddi’s name to the Santa Barbara Art Association or the Carpinteria Valley Arts Council.

NEED A RIDE? HELP volunteers will take you anywhere you want to go in Carpinteria.

When you were a kid did you have to follow the clean-plate rule? You know, the rule that insisted that starving children in China would be worse off if you left any part of your meal unfinished? I never quite got the logic behind this rule, but the guilt over leaving any food unchewed certainly has been hard to get rid of. Now, of course, the clean-plate rule no longer applies— MELINDA in fact it no longer exists. We are told to enforce portion control or reduce the actual size of our plates so food amounts look bigger or just eat half of what any normal restaurant says is a typical meal. This is just one of many changes that continue to make healthy eating a challenge. Sometimes it seems foods are like fashions—wait long enough and what has gone out of style will eventually come back into vogue. Take a simple cup of coffee. Growing up, I had to be an adult before I could drink coffee. Nobody told me it had a taste that would make me wonder why anyone, much less an adult, would drink coffee in the first place. College and late nights changed all that. Long after I was thoroughly addicted to my morning pickme-up, caffeine became a dirty word. It could cause cancer or heart disease or at the very least stomach ulcers. So I quit, cold turkey, and only imbibed decaf. Now—surprise, surprise—caffeine is good for us, sharpens our brains, may actually prolong life, if not overdone. So, I’m back on the hard stuff. And what about chocolate? I went through most of high school not eating chocolate because it was known to cause acne or at least make it worse. Now the word is that dark chocolate could actually be good for us, if eaten in appropriate amounts, and has no real connection to acne. Where were these experts when I needed them most?

When I was first living on my own, buying and cooking my own food in the backto-nature style, I developed a fondness for granola. (Muesli does not have enough crunch for me.) I can remember somebody visiting and watching amazed as I chomped through a large bowl of granola—in fact, I still love granola. After much happy crunching, I was informed that granola was at least half fat and sugar, and perhaps CheeriWITTWER os might be a better choice. Where are the food police when I need them? What about the diets that we tried? There was the grapefruit diet, the protein diet and the wire-your-mouth-shut diet. Of course it made sense that if you were on a diet and you went out to eat, you ordered a salad. Then even salads became suspect because if you were counting calories, it seems you had to count the ones in the blue cheese, the ones in the croutons, the ones in the bacon, and the ones in the salami. Thus, salads ended up being more for football players than for dieters. At some point I read that food eaten after 8 p.m. would end up being more fattening than if eaten earlier. I don’t know why I didn’t see through this right away. Of course, if you stop eating late at night those are calories you are not putting in your body regardless of the time of day, and since these calories are not in your body, it will be next to impossible for them to make you fat. I’m sure we all could go on and on about these various food myths or misunderstandings; just don’t expect closure anytime soon. Let me leave you with one reassuring conclusion: not only does moderate consumption of red wine help you have a healthy heart, you can also consume white wine or distilled spirits and experience the same benefits. And, hopefully, that is the final word on wine—at least for my next 30 years or so.

Following an intense Carpinteria middle School spelling bee at masonic Lodge #444 on Feb. 6, sixth-grader Naomi buchmiller was crowned local champion. Seventhgrader Liam Slade took second place, and creating a bit of local spelling bee history, sixth-grader michelle Alpizar took third place, to claim two of the top three spots for the youngest grade level in the sixth-to-eighth grade competition. the winning word was “acapella” or “A Capella.” Neither of the top two spelled it correctly but the third error knocked Slade into second place and secured victory for buchmiller. buchmiller and Alpizar will compete at the county level for fourth- through six-graders on Feb. 27. Slade and Kai McCarty, the local bee’s fourth-place finisher, will enter the Junior high bee on the same day.

Mr. Popular

A man contacted deputies on Feb. 1 to report that four creditors had notified him about accounts, which he knew nothing about, linked to his social security number. in mid-december, Neiman marcus department store called to inform the man that somebody had attempted to open an online account with the store. he put an end to the activity before it started. days later, discover card called him due to activity in philadelphia, penn., but again the suspicious activity was nipped in the bud. Soon after, Wells Fargo contacted the man about his new Raymour & Flanigan Furniture Store account in des moines, iowa. And for the fourth hit, the man heard from Lowe’s and an account associated with him but under a different name. deputies initiated an investigation with the name that had been used at Lowe’s against the victim’s credit.

Fireside spat

A woman reported to deputies that

she had suffered injuries after her male cousin shoved her into a fire late on Feb. 1. deputies caught up with the woman as she was being treated by paramedics on holly Avenue, and she said the incident happened at Carpinteria State beach earlier in the evening. the alleged victim of the intentional shove into open flames wanted to press charges. Other witnesses escorted deputies to the campsite/crime scene, but the alleged culprit was no longer there. deputies turned the investigation over to state park rangers who were piecing together the incident that occurred on state turf.

If that laptop could talk

deputies were able to track down a missing laptop computer after motel surveillance footage identified a 57-yearold woman and motel guest as the person who walked away with the misplaced computer Feb. 8 on Via Real. the victim, happy to get his computer back, elected to not press charges even though the hard

drive had been wiped clean by the time it was tracked down the following day. When deputies first interviewed with the computer-commandeering suspect, she stated she had found the “free laptop” and had brought it to a friend’s home in Goleta to have it “reset.” She could retrieve it, she said. the victim had told deputies he removed his computer bag from his vehicle the previous evening and discovered it was not in his vehicle the following morning while he was on his way to work. motel staff reviewed surveillance video for him, which showed him placing the bag on the ground in the parking lot, but never carrying it off with him. Later in the evening, another motel guest pulled into the parking lot and did carry the found bag to her room. in addition to the laptop, which the man valued at $5,000, the bag contained personal tax paperwork. deputies followed the suspect to a Goleta residence, where they retrieved the laptop—no bag—sitting outside the door. Asked where the bag had gone, the woman said she did not know. She called another man who told her that he ditched the bag in a dumpster at a gas station in Santa barbara. they were able to dumpster dive and retrieve the bag and tax documents. deputies also contacted the Goleta man who had left the computer outside his door. he said he was aware of the circumstances behind how he had acquired the computer. he also said the contents of the computer were irretrievably erased.

So clean was the hard drive that the computer did not even have an operating system on which to run. the victim was grateful just to see his laptop again and said he would not pursue charges. deputies told the woman that misappropriation of lost property was a crime and that her future may include a call from the district attorney’s office if it wished to prosecute her.

Found wallet, lost meth

A deputy was flagged down by a tourist who had found a wallet near Linden Avenue and Sandyland Road on the afternoon of Feb. 5. the deputy rummaged through the property and discovered a payroll check with the business’s and employee’s name on it. the wallet also contained a small bindle of crystal meth. the deputy found the wallet owner through the business. he denied knowing how the meth entered the wallet. deputies removed the meth and handed over the wallet, but could not prove that the man possessed the meth.

Amrit Joy’s Hints for Healthy & Happy Living Let it go and Lighten up ~ Part three This three-part exercise is to help you “let go and lighten up”

Sit up nice and straight, firm yet comfortable. Check your spine for alignment. Check your mind for focus. Be in the “now.” Now combine the arm movements from parts one and two. First, fingertips touch, shoulders extending out to the sides, and then fingertips touch, shoulders extending upwards. Whatever you didn’t take off before, will come off now. Whatever you didn’t give up before is given up now. Do long, deep breathing and practice the arm movements until you feel lighter, loved, blessed and peaceful. 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.

Carpinteria High School boys basketball pushed the score to 10-0 in the first quarter at Nordhoff High School on Feb. 12 before grabbing the 68-52 victory built on a combined 49 points by guards Omar Miranda and Rayshaun Moore. The victory secured a Frontier League co-championship for the Warriors, shared with the Rangers who had defeated the Warriors in the previous league match up. Miranda’s monster game included 24 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Moore scored 25 and sank 3-pointers at a 6-of-8 clip. Coach Johnny Ward commented that contributions came from “all across the team” in the determined effort to capture a championship. It was the first league title for Warrior boys basketball since 1999. In addition to the smooth guard play, the Warriors had strong performances by forwards Duncan Gordon and Mason Picerni. Picerni had four blocks. After press time, the Warriors will have hosted a home Division 4A CIF playoff game against St. Joseph High School of Santa Maria.

Forty years ago, the 1974 Warrior baseball team became the first sports team in Carpinteria High School history to win a CIF championship. Players and coaches were, from top left, Scott Kendrick, Joe Granada, Bill Van Buskirk, Chris Enlow, John Macias and John Leighty; from middle left, coach Lou Panizzon, John Cerda, Bob Matsuyama, Tom Ragsdale, Kevin Gahan, Keith Bell, Bill Mitchell, Mike Jimenez, coach Don Weaver and Dan Regalado; and from front left, Rick Perez, Tony Burquez, John Moreno, John McWhirter and Rudy Moreno.

Warrior baseball alumni to play on 40th anniversary of first CIF title When current Carpinteria High School baseball players battle against the Warriors of old in the annual alumni game on March 3, it will mark 40 years since the start of the 1974 CIF Championship squad’s season.

Led by 1974 CIF Class A Player of the Year John Moreno and coached by Lou Panizzon, the team had a 19-5-1 overall record and Tri-Valley League best 9-1

mark. It was the third straight year Warrior baseball won the TVL.

Spotlight on Babouchian Varoujan BY KIM DRAIN

Long before gourmet food trucks were on every street corner, Babouchian (“John”) Varoujan was driving his Winter-Summer catering truck up from Oxnard every morning to feed the hungry denizens of the Carpinteria Business Park. Working without the benefit of a Twitter feed or a Facebook page, Varoujan alerts his loyal customers to his whereabouts with a simple honk of his horn. In an area with no public dining options, Varoujan’s big white truck is a welcome sight, indeed. Varoujan has seen a lot of businesses come and go in his 20 years of servicing his route. “When I first worked in this area, there were many more employees,” Varoujan recalls. “Since the economy broke down, it hasn’t ever returned to that level.” Varoujan has also had a few competitors roaming the streets, but none could top the affable entrepreneur and they eventually drove off. While Varoujan and his co-chef and assistant driver, Janet Barrera, won’t be appearing on a reality show anytime soon, they can both be seen trundling their way along Via Real, happily waving from the side windows. Occupation: Owner and operator; Winter-Summer Food Catering Truck. How long have you been working in Carpinteria? I have been working in this area for about 25 years now. Why did you choose Carpinteria as your base of operation? Ever since arriving in the U.S. from Armenia, I have been moving my business farther and farther north. I began in Los Angeles, and I didn’t like all the traffic. I worked for a time in Camarillo, but the people weren’t as warm as here. Carpinteria is a clean and friendly town. All my customers are like family. What prompted you to start your own business? I worked in the jewelry industry for a time with my brother, but I didn’t care for the chaos of Los Angeles. A friend suggested I ride along with him on his food truck, and then I decided to buy my own.

ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

How did you prepare for this type of business? I’ve always enjoyed cooking. I like to barbecue at home and try out new dishes. I took food preparation classes in order to become licensed in food service. What is the best thing about driving a food truck? I love talking to all the people. I have so many regular customers, and I enjoy seeing them every day.

Cate School Athletes of the Week

What is the toughest thing about driving a food truck? Waking up early on those cold winter mornings!

ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

What is your best-selling item? Everything is good. The special breakfast burrito is very popular. Are you planning any new additions to the menu? I am thinking about making chicken enchiladas, but I can cook just about anything a customer would want. What improvement would you like to see made in Carpinteria? There are a lot of vacant buildings here. It would be nice to see more businesses start up here. There are some new companies, and they seem to be doing well.

Rotarian tackles El Camino

rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning member stella anderson recently hiked nearly 500 miles on the Camino de santiago (the Way of saint James) and came home to tell the club all about her journey. Joined by her two daughters, Caron berryhill and Pauline Lahey, anderson walked through the european countryside for 35 days, starting in san Jean Pied de Port in France and ending just past santiago de Compostela on the border of Portugal and spain.

Andersons celebrate centennial birthday

Florence Gertrude Mendell Anderson turned 100 on Feb. 16 and was celebrated by her loved ones at a birthday bash in Carpinteria. Anderson, an Oxnard resident, was honored at the home of her grandson Ben Anderson and his wife Leigh-Anne and 13th and 14th great-grandsons Luke and Liam. Fifty family guests, including her three children, eight grandsons and 14 great-grandchildren, as well as cousins, nieces and nephews came from across the United States, Germany and the Caribbean to honor the milestone.

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery? The following counts taken from Feb. 10 to 16 were compiled from Carpinteria Seal Watch volunteer reports. Carpinteria harbor seal beach closure runs from Dec. 1 to June 1 each year. Seal Watch volunteers are still welcome to sign up by calling 684-2247.

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Florence was born on a farm outside of Princeville, Ill., where she learned how to drive at 12. She never had a ticket or an accident and was still driving at 96 years old. She met her husband, Roscoe Anderson, during the Great Depression, and the couple moved west to California in 1941. In 1947 she gave birth to well known local artist Ron Anderson, younger brother to Marcella Griggs of Blacksburg, Virg. and Bob Anderson, who currently lives with his family in the Caribbean.

The pups are suddenly arriving in numbers

Visitors

Volunteers counted 1,826, which included people from Brazil, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, France, Russia, Austria, Washington, Colorado, New York, Nevada, Oregon, Iowa, Washington D.C., Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Kentucky, New Jersey, Illinois, Arizona, Georgia, Minnesota, Michigan, Utah, Ohio and Tennessee.

Disturbances

A fairly quiet week for the seals saw them disturbed twice by pier activity, and by a dog on the blufftop and a beachwalker.

Natural History Notes

This week, large crowds of birds arrived at the seal sanctuary, which provides a place free from disturbance for them as well as the seals. Hundreds of gulls, as well as many pelicans, cormorants, egrets, herons and other shore and pelagic birds were seen onshore the past few days. There is little interaction between the birds and the seals, other than interest by the gulls in feeding on the seals’ placentas after they have given birth. Turkey vultures, which feed on dead animals, also regularly patrol the beach and bluffs.

Chef Main cooks for the stars

During a break from churning out the fine cuisine at the Beverly Hilton in support of feeding Golden Globes guests, Thom Main sat down with his Coastal View News. The local private chef has worked during Globes weekend for 14 years, and he is the lead chef in charge of InStyle Magazine’s viewing dinner party and after party. The only year in the last 14 that Main did not attend was when the Globes were canceled for the writers strike in 2008.

CARPINTERIA

The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. Call 684-2247 or email sealwatch@ hotmail.com if you are interested in volunteering. To find out more, visit sealwatchcarpinteria.com.

Around Town Seniors shown a lovely time

Local seniors felt the love from the Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning on Feb. 14. Club members showered elderly luncheon attendees with treats, such as locally grown flower bouquets, and also decorated the Veteran’s Hall with hearts enough to make Cupid himself swoon. The club annually steps up to make the seniors’ Valentine’s lunch extra lovely.
