Pini properties remain under microscope

This week’s listings on the back page

Water world

By PeTer Dugré

“(Dario Pini) plays cat and mouse games with city officials, county officials, enforcement officers and building inspectors, fixing some of the things so he can slide to another hearing … I don’t want to give him any more time.”

City officials continued using multiple tools to compel Dario Pini to renovate and bring up to code his Carpinteria avenue motel and apartment buildings, but the Planning Commission at a march 3 meeting was unimpressed by Pini’s seeming inability to get any workers to use their tools in making construction progress at Casa Del sol. Despite expressing dissatisfaction with Pini’s request for a one-year extension on year-old plans to improve the troubled property, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to allow more time to turn the property around. the alternative would have been to restart the permitting process. at the hearing, brian murphy, architect for Pini, requested more time to remodel the facades, interiors and landscaping ––Commissioner of the 19-room motel and Jane Benefield 12-unit apartment building at 5585 Carpinteria ave. murphy had stated in a letter to the city that juggling the Casa del sol project simultaneously with renovations at neighboring Cypress tree apartments, tomarla apartments, La Concha apartments and sycamore apartments had become too burdensome to simultaneously complete. Commissioner Jane Benefield, who called Pini a “slum lord,” implied that feet dragging was the project applicant’s modus operandi. she said, “(Pini) plays cat and mouse games with city officials, county officials, enforcement officers and building inspectors, fixing some of the things so he can slide to another hearing … I don’t want to give him any more time … It’s apparent that Mr. Pini calculates whether the fine outweighs the building costs. the community is always the loser.” In the end, however, even Benefield voted to issue the one-year extension rather than start the process from scratch. Community Development Director Jackie Campbell explained that the code enforcement branch of her department had been citing Pini for code and building

Emily Gates, left, and Maia Hinton took a wet walk along the Carpintera Creek bike path in the midst of a five-day storm that dumped 3.99 inches on Carpinteria. The teens’ March 1 route gave them a close-up view of cascading storm runoff leading into Carpinteria Creek. Though Carpinteria received quite a bit of rain, as well as high surf, the Valley faired well in the storm, sustaining little damage. For more photos of storm conditions, see pages 14 and 15.

Water board hesitantly votes in favor of regional water broker By Lea BoyD

Despite some trepidation, Carpinteria Valley Water District’s board of directors voted on Feb. 26 to join fellow water agencies in the Central Coast Water authority in hiring a water broker to seek out available sources of the precious commodity. Chief among board concerns was the district’s liability exposure in the case of a water purchase, but the decision to engage a broker is just the first of multiple steps toward a water deal, and the board will have future opportunities to accept or reject specific water contract terms. the Central Coast Water authority, which manages and operates pipelines for distribution of state Water in santa barbara and parts of san Luis obispo counties, met the following day and voted to revise the agreement with broker sierra Water Group and reconsider it at a special meeting held after Coastal View News went to press on march 6. though sierra would be hired by the Water authority as a whole, individual water agencies will be able to decide which water deals, if any, they wish to

participate in. the broker will work to secure water on what’s called the “spot market,” in which the resource is sold by individuals or organizations with water to spare, such as farmers with stored water. CVWD had anticipated that its vote at the Water authority meeting would not affect the outcome, given that member agencies santa maria and montecito water districts, which account for 43 and 9 percent of voting power respectively, are thirsty for new water sources. June Van Wingerden, Carpinteria’s representative on the Water authority, told her fellow CVWD boardmembers, “We’re being forced to do this right now because there are some agencies that are really in dire straits.” though Van Wingerden agreed to follow the direction of her board at the Feb. 27 Water authority meeting, she had cast her own vote against supporting the decision the night before. she and boardmember richard Forde were the dissenting minority on the CVWD board.

Persoon hired as Canalino principal

Having served as interim principal of Canalino School for the last several months, Jamie Persoon was officially hired on a permanent basis in a unanimous decision by the school board on Feb. 25. The longtime Canalino teacher was appointed interim principal last August after former Principal Jeff Madrigal announced his resignation. Asked to comment on her position, Persoon stated, “It’s been a pleasure to be a part of the Canalino community for more than 15 years as a teacher and parent; serving as the principal is a great privilege.”

Canalino School Principal Jamie Persoon is celebrated by her staff after the school board decision to drop her interim status.

Drivers arrested in road rage incident

Carpinteria Valley lumber and Home Center

A 56-year-old Santa Barbara man and a 25-year-old Simi Valley man were arrested on March 4 following a road rage incident that unfolded on Highway 101 through Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria. It began with one driver becoming irritated with the other for driving slowly in the southbound fast lane. The men pulled alongside one another and began arguing through their open windows. Near Santa Claus Lane, the Simi Valley man, Ryan Luna, threw a “supersized” soda into the passenger window of the other truck, hitting the passenger and spraying soda throughout the cab. In response, the other driver, Joseph Antonucci, slammed the right side of his truck into the left side of Luna’s. Luna exited at Carpinteria Avenue and was arrested soonafter by a California Highway Patrol officer sent to the scene after a witness called in the incident. Antonucci was pulled over at Mussel Shoals by a CHP division chief who witnessed the incident while driving an unmarked patrol vehicle.

A private investigation conducted by the defense turned up evidence that undermined the victim’s case, said Webb. The girl was Carey’s teacher’s assistant, and the two developed a close friendship in the classroom.

Breitling Scholarships awarded to four Carpinteria teens By Kim Drain

Spring is the time many high school seniors are weighing a very important decision: where to attend college? The brochures can seem appealing, but how can a student know if a particular college will be a good fit? Thanks to the Breitling Scholarship Award, four local girls will be given the chance to travel to a university (or two) on their wish list and see for themselves. Administered by Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, the scholarship was established to give a helping hand to high-achieving young women in Santa Barbara County. Jacqueline Breitling, the scholarship’s namesake, was a longtime community volunteer in Santa Barbara and Montecito. Breitling, who passed away in 2001, was a self-made businesswoman who understood the value of higher education. She intended the money to be used as a way for college-bound girls to explore their options in person by traveling to various campuses. “It’s a remarkable opportunity,” said Girls Inc. of Carpinteria Board President Mary Crowley.

“Mrs. Breitling’s vision and generosity continue to help the young women of our community choose the right college for themselves.” Scholarship winner and Girls Inc. of Carpinteria member Viviana Morales said, she is “nervous yet excited” to travel out of state for the first time ever to visit Harvard University over her spring break. Massachusetts is a world away from Carpinteria, but Morales feels it would be a good choice to pursue her intended major, political science. “I’ve never really been away from home,” Morales said. “The funding from the Breitling Scholarship will give me the opportunity to expand my horizons.” Another award recipient, Carpinteria FFA Chapter President Molly Miller, is considering colleges that will help her achieve her career goal of working in agriculture. While she has already been accepted by several California universities, Miller has set her sights farther away. “My mom and I are flying to Indiana to tour Purdue University,” Miller said. “The head of the Ag Department is going to give me a tour of the campus as well as inviting me to sit in on a few class sessions.” Miller will also use her Breitling funds to travel to Texas to learn more about the ranch and agricultural business programs offered. Two other graduating girls will be following their dreams to college; Leticia Cruz of Carpinteria High School and Mckell Davis of Cabrillo High School each received a Breitling Scholarship.

In response to the discovery of two Asian Citrus Psyllid in residential citrus trees in Carpinteria and Summerland, the California Department of Food & Agriculture is planning a targeted pesticide application in Carpinteria, in the Cravens Lane and Foothill Road area, possibly affecting numerous residential properties. This application follows on the heels of similar sprayings recently in Ojai and other parts of Ventura County. According to the CDFA, the detected pests can carry and transmit a devastating bacterial disease called Huanglongbing. It should be noted that the bacteria has not been detected in any of the samples, but because of risk to the citrus industry, the state has been aggressively monitoring and attempting to control the pest. Several alternatives to this treatment exist; including netting citrus trees and far less toxic treatments that organic growers have used successfully. The three pesticides intended to be applied including Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid, are labeled by the manufacturer to be “highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment or residues on blooming crops or weeds.” Dozens of independent studies on Imidacloprid, as well as other neonicotinoid pesticides, confirm impacts on bees and colony health, including colony collapse disorder. As many citrus trees are currently in bloom in the intended treatment area where local bees are foraging, an application of these insecticides poses an extremely high risk of poisoning, injuring and potentially exterminating local honeybee colonies. Last year, 18 beehives collapsed in nearby Montecito. Penn State University tested samples of the comb and honey which showed the presence of a number

of pesticides. Penn State Senior Extension Associate Maryann Frazier remarked, “Honey bees across the country are being exposed to a great diversity and sometimes high levels of pesticides. While the evidence associated with the Montecito die-off is not conclusive, the symptoms of colony deaths and detections of low levels of pesticides toxic to honey bees are suspicious and cause for concern.” Just last week, Assemblymember Das Williams introduced Assembly Bill 1789 that would set a timeline for the California Department of Pesticide Regulation to determine whether the pesticide neonicotinoids are driving bee die-offs across the country. The California Department of Food and Agriculture will be sending notifications to homeowners within the treatment areas but will not be holding any public hearings. Residents have the option of opting out of treatment and should inquire further. Santa Barbara County Agricultural Commissioner’s office has a list of safer alternatives; contact them at 681-5600. Honeybees are responsible for the pollination of at least 95 kinds of crops. Local beekeepers and supporters of beekeeping are highly committed to providing safe, healthy and pesticide-free environments for honeybees, as well as other important pollinators. Voluntary monitoring and treatments using less invasive and harmful methods by owners of citrus trees are encouraged. Community education programs will be expanded this spring to provide information and alternatives to the use of pesticides toxic to pollinators. Please inquire at Santa Barbara Beekeepers Association (sbba.org) for more information.

Obituary

FRAN DAVIS

Taking toll of the drought

Skirmishes over water are growing more public and vociferous. With the Montecito Water District’s share of the Cachuma Lake puddle at an all-time low, some very loud grouching can be heard behind the hedges of large Montecito estates. In Summerland, the grouching has taken on a regretful tone as residents decry the day we closed our own water district down and partnered up with Montecito. One Summerland resident, Pat Nesbitt, owner of the Bella Vista Polo Club and the town’s largest water user by far, recently appeared on KEYT news, complaining that he would be hit with $148,000 in fines in July if his water use continued as the same rate. And that was just the fine. It’s a measure of just how serious the situation is when fines for overuse reach a stage that the rest of us consider breathtakingly astronomical. MWD’s adoption of emergency Ordinance No. 93 last month calls for drastic cutbacks in water use across the board, and landscaping stands to take the biggest hit. Golf courses, parks, cemeteries, school campuses, polo fields and large estates are all going to look a little browner. Crunchy grass may even inspire the tenders of those gardens to rethink the kinds of plants they put in the ground. Cutbacks and a nearly rainless winter may finally make us face the reality of our dry terrain. By and large Summerlanders are conscientious water users. “Heroes,” MWD’s general manager Tom Mosby called us at a special meeting in Summerland last month. We use less “personal” water than Goleta, which uses the least of the South Coast communities. The average daily water usage in the MWD is 290 gallons per person. That’s a staggering amount compared to Santa Barbara at 86 gallons, Carp at 84, and Goleta, the big water saver, at 66 daily gallons per person. Summerland is literally a drop in MWD’s bucket. Montecito users swig down more than three times as much water as their neighbors. Of course there’s not so much swigging as spraying. Eighty percent of the district’s water is used for landscaping—80 percent. That leaves 20 percent for everything else—all the drinking and cooking and showers and flushing that we all regard as indispensable. Water usage in the MWD is crazily lopsided, according to the figures Mosby shared during the Summerland meeting. Five percent of MWD accounts use 25 percent of the water. A quarter of the whole district’s purified lake water gets sucked down by a scant few. You can bet that water’s not being used in dishwashers. With the district slated to run out of water completely this summer (at the current downdraw), MWD had to adopt desperate measures to stem the flow. Hence the big fines, hailed by some and labeled “draconian” by others. Under the ordinance, every household in the district will receive an allotment of 25 HCF (hundred cubic feet) a month, or 300 HCF a year. This number has a built-in buffer for outside irrigation. A very generous buffer, it turns out. FYI, one HCF equals 748 gallons. That means that every single family home is allowed 18,700 gallons a month! Remember the average daily use per person (in Summerland, 65 gallons or less)? No one should be complaining about this allotment. There is an additional allocation, 111 HCF per year per acre for “non-essential uses” (outdoor irrigation). A home on a ¼-acre would get ¼ of that, and a 40-acre parcel would be allowed 40 times that.

Summerland is literally a drop in MWD’s bucket. Montecito users swig down more than three times as much water as their neighbors. Of course there’s not so much swigging as spraying. Eighty percent of the district’s water is used for landscaping—80 percent. Still a lot of water, but not enough for some folks who are already calling foul and begging for desal. The teeth in MWD’s ordinance are pretty sharp. Commencing in April, water consumption in excess of established allotments will result in fines of $30 per HCF. Consumption that is 25 percent in excess of an allotment will result in the district installing a flow restrictor. While most of us drown in figures detailing this kind of water usage, some residents see big water usage as a right. Mosby estimated that two months into the allocation system, he might well be installing 400 to 500 flow restrictors! If a flow restrictor isn’t enough, the fines go up—$45 per HCF of overage. After two months of overuse with a flow restrictor, the account is “subject to discontinuation.” Shutting off the water completely. And tampering with a flow restrictor is a misdemeanor. You can blame the severe restrictions and penalties on the severe drought. Mosby said there hadn’t been dryness this bad as far back as the 1860 records. Our gardens practically shouted praise for last week’s rain, but it didn’t affect the reservoir levels much. And the state’s not suddenly announcing any deliveries either. Why the sudden emergency, people wonder. Why was there no planning? And how do you plan for a drought anyway? We don’t, even though tree ring study shows the state has experienced frequent and severe droughts. We are densely populated now, and there are more of us draining the system. We use up every drop that falls as snow and rain. We drain our lakes and reservoirs as soon as they fill, we don’t let our groundwater recharge, and it is vastly overdrafted. We treat water like kids with candy, using it up until it’s gone, and then we pout. Our “planning” goes from year to year, when it needs to go from decade to decade. Short-term planning doesn’t work. As one water expert was quoted recently in the L.A. Times, “Who were you not going to give water to two years ago and last year so you could plan for this year?” Mosby said that desal was a must for the future, and already Montecitans are begging down at city hall. But Santa Barbara doesn’t plan to reactivate its mothballed plant until emergency and take steps to solve it. One good thing: A bountiful rainstorm, trees renewed, salt marsh brimming, birds in puddles.

Edna Mae (Wills) Billings 4/2/1934 - 2/9/2014

Edna Mae (Wills) Billings passed away peacefully on Feb. 9, 2014 surrounded by her family. Edna was born on April 27, 1934 in Berkeley, Calif. to parents Richmond T. and Juanita T. (Durbin) Wills. In her early life, Edna sang in her school choir, twirled a baton and was an active member of the Oakland Assembly #11 of the Rainbow Girls, where she received her majority in 1953. She was a Girl Scout Leader in San Antonio, Texas in 1962 to 1963. After moving to Carpinteria, Calif. in 1971, she was active in the Vallecito Chapter #523 of the Order of the Eastern Star in Carpinteria where she served as Worthy Matron in 1975. She was also the chairman, secretary and board member of the Carpinteria Rainbow Girls from 1971 to 1986 and Mother Advisor in 1986. Edna became a teller in the First National Bank of Reno, Nev. in 1958, Bank of America in Oakland, Calif. from 1958 to 1962, and Santa Barbara National Bank in Carpinteria, Calif. from 1975 to 1983.

She worked briefly at the All-Star Inn from 1983 to 1985 and then for the City of Carpinteria from 1985 to 1997, where she retired as Finance Assistant. During her time in Carpinteria, Edna was on the board of the Sister City Group and traveled often to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. She also enjoyed traveling across the U.S. and to Hawaii, Europe and Australia. After moving into her dream house in Santa Maria during her retirement, Edna volunteered as a reading tutor for the Laubach reading system in Santa Maria from 1999 to 2007. She loved her students and taught them reading and English, gave advice and gifts to her students and their children. She was also very skilled in all of the sewing arts and has been a member of the SAGA (Smocking Arts Guild of America) since 1992. Her family members have been the lucky recipients of the many beautiful sewing projects she created. Edna considered her family her greatest treasure and contributions to the world. Among them are her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren: daughter Debra E. Hart and her children Sarah Hart and Tim Welsh (parents of Edna’s great-grandchildren Greyson and Adelyn); Patrick, Emily and Timothy; daughter Jennifer A. Wildman and children Caleb and Lindsey; daughter Mary Fennell Champagne (deceased) and son Jason Fennell; and daughter Susan C. and husband, Dave LaMothe, and children Camille and Julia. Edna was predeceased by her mother, Juanita Durbin Wills; father, Richmond T. Wills; sister, Joyce L. Wills; half-brother, Larry Wills; daughter Mary Fennell Champagne and grandchildren Katherine L. G. Hart and Joshua A. Wildman. Everyone who knew Edna described her as quite a character! In her last year at Merrill Gardens in Santa Maria, she spent her days at social gatherings, holiday parties and happy hour, and worked vigilantly at the jigsaw table. She spent many loving hours with her gentleman friend Joe, who made her very happy. Edna’s grit and determination was an example for all, and carried her into her final days. We hope that all who read this will raise a glass and toast to her memory. We’ll miss you, Mom! The funeral will be on Saturday, March 15 at 10 a.m. at the Carpinteria Cemetery.

Every asthmatic, except the ones with the mildest forms, should be using an inhaled steroid. An important distinction needs to be made between inhaled steroids and steroid pills.

Amrit Joy’s Hints for Healthy & Happy Living Dancer - Natarajasna

This balancing pose strengthens muscles in the legs, feet and lower back. It opens the hips and pelvis and strengthens the psoas muscles (the muscles that connect the torso to the lower body). 1. In a standing pose, bend the left knee, raising the left foot to the buttocks. 2. Hold the left ankle or foot with the left hand. 3. Raise the right hand in the air, balancing on your right foot. 4. Hold the pose and take some long deep breaths. 5. Repeat on the opposite side. Then return to standing pose and breath. 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.

body. Inhaled steroids work only in the lungs. They do not enter the bloodstream and therefore leave the body’s natural hormonal balance untouched. They are very considerate that way. So the next time we’re enjoying a fruit filled pastry or the effects of the Earth’s gravity, let’s take a moment to thank the inhaled steroids. Thanks to them, the lives of asthmatics are closer to those of non-asthmatics than ever before. In fact, many people only find out that a friend has asthma after peering through their medicine cabinet. Medicine may be more complicated today, but it has also given us better treatment options. So I can do my paperwork, resting assured that, nowadays, I can better treat my patients’ asthma—as well as my own.

Charge it: Electric vehicles find happy homes in Carpinteria By KateRi WozNy

As a chiropractor by trade and mother of an adorable 2-year-old daughter, Rebecca Claassen keeps busy and loves spending quality time with her family members—and they are spread out all over Santa Barbara County. From Lompoc to Santa Maria, she goes the distance, and to help with her constant commutes, she decided to lease a Nissan Leaf electric vehicle (EV) last May. Smooth driving and quiet, the car has changed the way Claassen regards her time on the road. “My friends and I call my commute my Zen time because driving has become a very relaxing experience for me,” she said. EVs hit the market in 2011 and Claassen is just one of many dedicated EV drivers in the area. According to Michael Chiacos, energy and transportation manager at Community Environmental Council and EV owner, currently there are 375 EV on the South Coast, which has 200,000 people, and the number of EVs increases between 25 and 30 a month. “For Carpinteria’s 15,000 people, that would put it at 25 EVs,” he said. Drivers have the opportunity to charge at home and around town. Chiacos says that Santa Barbara County has 72 public chargers, 50 of which are on the South Coast. In Carpinteria, however, there are only two. One is a private charging station at Lynda.com and the other a public station located in the city parking lot at the Amtrak station. The public plug-in, which the city subscribes to through owner ChargePoint, has been operational since July 2012. The city recently extended its subscription with ChargePoint for $580 annually for the next three years. Last November, the council voted to charge users 30 cents per kilowatt-hour, which translates to between 99 cents and $1.98 per hour. Carpinterians with a Nissan Leaf can expect to pay $7.20 for a full charge, and Tesla Model S owners can expect to pay $18. In total, the city expects to generate $106 in revenue from the station every month. “The per kilowatt-hour fee is expected to cover the cost of the subscription service and electricity for operating station,” said Erin Maker, environmental coordinator for the City of Carpinteria. Still, the council is exploring the possibility of a flex rate that would increase if owners were to park their vehicles for long, unsupervised periods of time and prohibit others from charging their vehicles. “Eventually, we will take that item back to council at a later date,” Maker said. With the EV market growing, the city is also hoping to increase the number of chargers. Plug-in Central Coast, a collaborative group representing Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties, applied for a California Energy Commission grant that would support two additional dual port chargers at public lots in Carpinteria. The city is expected to find out whether the project received funding in the next few months. “By expanding, it will attract more tourists and travelers to visit Carpinteria,” Maker said.

Rebecca Claassen holds her daughter, Hazel, and the electrical plug for her Nissan Leaf. Volt and loves knowing that it creates zero emissions on the road. The affordability has also paid off; she pays only an extra $40 per month for electricity. “I know most folks pay more than $40 for a tank of gas and it does not last for a month!” Selfridge said. Chiacos noted that EVs reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 75 percent a mile compared to a gas car and produce zero tailpipe emissions. “Since they are so efficient, they are very cheap to fuel. They use clean domestic electricity instead of oil, which has a lot of problems such as climate change, air pollution, oil wars and economic impacts of sending billions to other countries,” he said. However, even with the opportunity to charge around town, Claassen, Selfridge and Chiacos agree that plugging in overnight at home is most practical. Chiacos says that plugging his EV in each night takes less time than going to a gas station every week. EVs also have a limited range of 70 to 100 miles. “Charging an EV can be slow. On a normal 110 outlet you only get 3 to 5 miles an hour. On a 240 volt Level 2 charger, like the public one at Carpinteria, you get 10 to 30 miles/hour, depending on the car,” Chiacos said. “When I use public charging it is usually to just top off for an

Obispo,” she said. Increased demand should increase charging station supply, and by 2025, the State of California hopes to have 1.5 million charging stations. “Electric vehicles are here to stay,” Chiacos said.

Storm soaks thirsty coast Parched Carpinteria found some rainy relief last week when a ballyhooed storm arrived on the night of Feb. 26 and lived up to all its hype by dropping nearly 3.99 inches over the next five days. Officials say that the infusion of rain won’t put a dent in the drought—Carpinteria still has only received a total 5.12 inches this rain year, 35 percent of normal. Nonetheless, the wet weather was welcomed by the dry landscape, thirsty wildlife and rainstarved Californians.

Carpinteria daily rainfall totals Feb. 26 Feb. 27 Feb. 28 March 1 March 2

–– 0.92 inches –– 0.48 inches –– 1.64 inches –– 0.85 inches –– 0.10 inches

As high tide and high surf created high drama along the coast on the morning of March 1, 14-year-old Renan De Mello Martins pointed his camera at the action. Here, he focuses on Carpinteria Point from a berm-top perch at Linden Beach. “I looked out onto the horizon and expected surf-able, yet stormy waves, but the waves today were excessively immense,” reported the teen.

“Bouncing ball” by Barbara McIntyre

McIntyre’s “Fragment Series” goes up at the cup

Local assemblage artist Barbara McIntyre sourced broken porcelain dolls from Thuringia Province in Germany for her “Fragment Series” currently on display at Curious Cup Bookstore, 5285 Carpinteria Ave. Repurposed as artistic pieces, the flaws in the cherubic dolls add a darkness to the usually merry figures. The dolls had been buried since they were manufactured and thrown away because of imperfections in the period between 1880 and 1910. “There is something in these little faces, even as damaged and stained as they are, or maybe because of it. I could not resist the urge to put them back together in some way, to be able to enjoy them in some small way,” stated McIntyre.

Curtains to rise on “Connected”

Five one-act plays by Ed Giron are strung together in “Connected,” a series of comedic, dramatic and serio-comedic works sharing a common thread of characters described as imperfectly perfect. The stage production will take place Friday through Sunday, March 28 to March 30 and April 4 through April 6. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. The one-act plays are “Slippery Slope,” the story of two friends whose cars are stuck on a secluded road; “One and the Other,” about two soldiers battling each other, the elements and their duties; “Reservations,” examining a couple’s relationship and sometimes poignant look at compromise, need and companionship; “The Fastest Way to a Woman’s Heart,” a comedy about a first date that ends with plumbing and electrocution; and “Noel....Coward!” featuring a coward named Noel in a powerful memory play about love, love lost and love regained. Tickets are $17 for general admission and $13 for seniors and students with valid identification and are available at plazatheatercarpinteria.com at Curious Cup Bookstore, 5285 Carpinteria Avenue, or at Plaza Playhouse Theater, 4916 Carpinteria Ave. one hour prior to curtain.

Warrior Paulina Barbosa gets back into the swing of things with a hit in a March 4 home game to kick off softball season.

Spring diamonds come to life Warrior baseball, softball previews BY PETER DUGRÉ

Carpinteria High School baseball and softball seasons march on despite the wet weekend that saw the alumni baseball game washed out. Warrior baseball coach Pat Cooney said that every minute on the field for the baseball squad, including the alumni exhibition, was a live audition for roster spots on a team, which “feels very fresh, green or raw.” He went as far as quoting the old Abbott and Costello bit, asking, “Who’s on first?” The other pertinent questions are “What does the pitching staff look like?” and “What does the batting order look like?” A roster rebuild is in progress. Although a lot has changed heading into this season, there remains a strong senior core that brings experience to balance the youth. Seniors Mo Sanchez, Connor Kelsey, Kevin Stein, Haley Van Stein and Duncan Gordon are returning to fill important roles. Additionally, juniors Jorge Arroyo, Nick Walker and Javier Jasso look to get into the mix. Sophomores Jonah Spach, Malcolm Gordon and Diego Contreras will debut on varsity along with freshmen David Martinez and Salvador Delgado, who might share some pitching responsibilities and other roles as they come up. The Warriors kick off the non-league schedule with a home double header versus Santa Ynez High School on Saturday, March 8, at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. That match up and a double header versus Cabrillo High School on March 15, at Cabrillo, will help shape the roster and provide formidable competition in preparation for Frontier League. League play begins on April 9 against Villanova Prep at CHS’s John Calderwood Field. Cooney stated he hopes the games during the last week of league play in mid May against Malibu High School will be as important as the opener against Villanova Prep. If the Warriors have a lot at stake against defending Frontier League champ Malibu over the last week of the season, that means the

goals of winning a league title and making playoffs are still within reach.

Softball faces life after Cat

Carpinteria High School softball will have a person or people pitching significant innings this year not named Catalina Maldonado. Those people following in the footsteps of the four-year varsity starter will be Natalie Saito and Kimmy Methmann. Coach Henry Gonzales has a lot of faith in his new pitchers and the overall make up of the team that returns four experienced ball players. Hannah Galsterer, Paulina Barbosa, Teegan Singer and Saito return from last season’s roster. “We have some JV players coming that are good ball players,” Gonzales said. Methmann is one such player. “The more experience we gain, the better we’ll become,” he said. Singer and Barbosa make up the left side of the infield at shortstop and third base, respectively, and represent a couple of the biggest bats in the lineup. Saito and Galsterer are game-tested outfielders. The Warriors hit the ground running with a game against Cabrillo High School on March 4 before a scheduled clash with rival Bishop Diego High School on Thursday, March 6, at home. They then spend the weekend at the Santa Ynez High School Tournament. “We’ll find out a whole lot about ourselves in two weeks,” Gonzales said. The team is scheduled to play 10 games over that 14-day stretch beginning March 4 against Cabrillo. The Tri-Valley League season will begin on Tuesday, March 18, when Nordhoff High School visits. Warrior softball faces great challenges in a TVL that’s stacked with some of the best programs in the Southern Section. “We’re going to be very capable, but we’ll see,” Gonzales said of the Warriors’ chances in Tri-Valley League.

ON DECK

With his latest finish near the head of the pack, local triathlete Matt Organista has reached his goal of going pro. Organista finished in second place in the Draft Legal Challenge sprint race in Clermont, Fla., on March 2. The race, which allows cyclists to draft each other, served as an Elite Development Race or qualifier for entering the professional circuit in racing and taking prize purses. The top three finishers qualify to go pro, and Organista said he plans on participating in his first pro race in April, likely again in Florida. He is also an assistant coach with Carpinteria High School swimming and water polo. Organista won at the London Age Group World Triathlon Championships last September and has since gained sponsorship from Every Man Jack men’s hygiene products. The Every Man Jack team sent four participants to Clermont to participate in the race. Since drafting is allowed, “there’s a lot more strategy involved,” according to Organista. “At those speeds you save a lot of energy when you’re drafting, like 30 percent.” After he qualified in a Saturday race, Organista allowed a teammate to draft him on Sunday, but the teammate ended in fifth place, just short of the top three and pro qualification. “We just couldn’t make up the ground,” he commented. Organista said he must improve his results even further to be a top place finisher on the pro circuit. His biking and running are strong enough to put him on pace, but his swim times lag. “I’m really going to have to work hard to get the top spot and prize money,” he said. As a self-trained athlete, he said new goals will reinforce his determination.

PLANNING: Continued from page 1

violations and a hearing before an administrative officer to determine a course of action is scheduled for March 13. She said the city has documented many issues, like a plastic rooftop covering some of the units, that had been addressed by a compliance order dating back to August 2013. Campbell was confident the city could win its case at the hearing. Concerned citizen Susan Allen, wife of planning commissioner David Allen, who had to recuse himself from the vote due to living so near to the project, said, “I truly think this is going to be Carpinteria’s Miramar. We’re going to be (in hearings) forever.” Her home borders a Pini property, and she complained that the amount of trash being thrown into her yard from over the fence line recently became so great she had to call the police.

Beach Bowl approved for seating, must pay for parking

Planning commissioners permitted Beach Bowl to install interior seating, a site improvement at the yet-to-open 901 Linden Ave. smoothie, coffee and bowls bar, but stated with some reservations that the new business must pay over $20,000 in parking development impact fees in order to provide 28 seats for customers. The interior seating had not been part of the originally submitted plans for the location and represented an intensification in use at the site formally used for retail, according to city analysis. Four additional parking spots are required to meet the intensification. Property owner Alex Hamadi had requested an exception to the parking fees

at the site that has been under construction since mid-2013 and is near opening. The cost to use public parking for the needs of private business is $5,189 per spot, and the money is earmarked by the city for future downtown parking improvements. During the discussion, city planners commented that the fees can be prohibitive to would-be entrepreneurs. Assistant Planner Shanna Farley-Judkins commented that other restaurant concepts had been proposed for the location at the corner of Linden Avenue and 9th Street but with even more seating and higher parking fees, those potential businesses backed down. “For brand new businesses (parking fees) can be expensive and very scary,” Farley-Judkins said. Recently both Rincon Brewery, which has been approved on Carpinteria Avenue, and an Island Brewing Company expansion project, have accrued similar fees as conditions for project approval. Both businesses had protested the fees before ultimately being charged for parking they could not provide on site. Planning commissioners expressed some weariness at facing another business owner asking for relief. While recognizing the need for a tenant at the long-vacant downtown site, commissioners stuck with precedence and city policy in the 5-0 vote. Planning Commission Chairperson John Callender said, “We’ve maybe put the balance too far in favor of making sure there’s adequate parking ... We have vacant properties that could be businesses and have lots of parking sitting idle because we’ve made darn sure the parking is going to be there but not necessarily that the business is going to be there.”

WATER BOARD: Continued from page 1

Among the concerns discussed by CVWD board members were the costs to hire the broker, the risk of liability should a water deal be secured and the lack of time to thoroughly consider the decision before them, given that the contract with Sierra was provided to boardmembers just hours before their meeting. CVWD attorney Roger Myers confirmed that a water purchase contract could involve significant liability and that the most likely risks would be associated with the California Environmental Quality Act. He added that the board decision on whether or not to support the hiring of a broker would have no bearing on its future liability. “I think that if CCWA votes to engage in this agreement, then if some lawsuit arises out of this agreement against CCWA, then this district is going to pay its proportional share,” he concluded. The first step in hiring Sierra does not bind the district to expenses or a specific water deal. Should CVWD decide to pursue a purchase of water, it will be required to pay its 7 percent share of the $285 hourly costs for the broker to seek out water suppliers. The terms of the proposed contract include a 5 percent commission to Sierra for each water transaction. Board President Matt Roberts made the motion to support the Sierra agreement, arguing that the district should leave its options open for purchasing water in the future. Carpinterians are already

paying $3 million annually to participate in the State Water Project, and use of the expensive infrastructure could come in handy as a means of connecting the water district to supplies otherwise beyond its reach, Roberts said. Compared to the water shortages facing many California water agencies, CVWD is in a good position to weather the drought. Banked water and groundwater have been counted on to bolster the district’s supply; however, District General Manager Charles Hamilton informed the board that monthly water sales have been higher than budgeted. In total, the district sold 511 acre feet more than budgeted between July and January. “This type of demand is certainly not what we planned for … with our situation, that’s not a good thing,” he said. A second groundwater well should be producing water for the district by midmonth, and Hamilton is working with Irvine Ranch Water District to access more of its banked State Water than originally specified in the contract. Though the Central Coast received substantial rainfall over the last week, water officials have announced that it was much too little to put a dent in the drought. Lake Cachuma only rose by 1 foot as a result of the storm, bringing it up to just 39 percent of its capacity. Carpinteria has received only 35 percent of normal rainfall for the winter, and the countywide average is at just 46 percent.

Shoemaker and surf icon fundraise for colon cancer research

SeaVees shoe company has teamed up with legendary surfboard shaper Renny Yater in an effort to raise funds to fight colon cancer. A custom made Yater Spoon will be auctioned through eBay from March 16 to 26, and all proceeds will be donated to colon cancer research at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara. Additionally, for each pair of 08/63 Hermosa Plimsoll Standards sold by SeaVees, 10 percent will be donated to the Cancer Center. SeaVees was founded in 1964, the same year that Yater shaped the original Yater Spoon, a shape that remains the board of choice among many longboarders today. Yater, a Carpinteria resident, continues to hand shape surfboards today. “Renny Yater epitomizes Authentic California,” said Steven Tiller, CEO and Chief Designer of SeaVees. “It was an honor to work with such a legend.” To learn more about the auction or purchase a pair of Hermosa Plimsoll Standards, visit seavees.com.

Congressional Cut Flower Caucus launched by Capps and Hunter

Local Democratic Congresswoman Lois Capps and Republican colleague Congressman Duncan Hunter, of California’s 50th District, launched the Congressional Cut Flower Caucus last week. The caucus is open to all Members of Congress and will be dedicated to promoting the domestic cut flower industry. The group will focus on educating members and staff on the economic and cultural importance of America’s cut flower and greens farmers, as well as the challenges the industry faces. The caucus will sponsor events to provide a greater understanding of the issues and opportunities facing America’s cut flower farmers, their families and their flowers. “Floriculture is our nation’s third largest agricultural product, supporting tens of thousands of jobs and billions in economic activity. This caucus will be a platform to highlight these contributions and for increasing awareness for the issues facing the industry,” Capps said in a statement.

Boys & Girls Club connects kids with Foodbank resources

the united boys & Girls Clubs of Carpinteria served over 115,000 nutritional snacks to local youth in 2013 thanks to the Santa barbara County Foodbank’s support. the Foodbank provided enough free and low-priced food items for the club to serve a variety of healthy snacks throughout the year to children in need, including afterschool snacks, as well as breakfast, lunch and two snacks during summer and recess days. “i am so pleased to see children putting down the hot Cheetos bags they brought from home and picking up apples instead,” said Amanda Lyon, a club staff member who helps prepare the daily snacks. every child who walks through the club’s door is offered something to eat, and children are sometimes sent home with healthy weekend snack bags if there are leftover perishable items. Children not only gain the nutritional benefit of the snacks, but they are also educated about the foods they consume, healthy lifestyles and good nutrition thanks to specialized club programming and the Foodbank’s farmers market.

Hollywood bachelor Albert isham built a moorish style mansion on the Carpinteria coast in 1928 at a cost of $1.8 million, and within the ornately tiled walls of his “Casa blanca,” he entertained starlets and moviemakers. in her book “Carpinteria as it Was,” Jayne Craven Caldwell presents the fate of the fabulous home, “… with the building of the breakwater in Santa barbara, the death sentence of Casa blanca was signed. the ocean currents began to shift, and gradually the sea ate at the property until it crumbled and gave way. it took just eight years for this insidious destruction. And if that weren’t enough, a tidal wave demolished the main house, and today its brick and concrete lay beneath the water in silent protest. Of the original seven acres the sea has claimed three, and only the fountain, the front CArPiNteriA VAlley MuSeuM of HiStory courtyard and the lounge and pool building remain of the original hideaway.” As the nation gears up for March Madness (starting March 19), CVN Since it Casa blanca was swept away, the property been subdivided and thought would be appropriate to stoke the fire has of excitement with an several homes built near the historic poolhouse, which still stands.

Carpinteria Library recommendation “The Gate” by Natsume Soseki

An individual’s job in Japan is to present a surface that gives little away. One effect of this careful maintenance of the larger harmony is to receive a rigorous training in attention. You learn to read the small print of life. A Japanese classic, “The Gate” by Natsume Soseki maintains this same calm demeanor. In essence it is the story of the marriage of Sosuke and Oyone. Their relationship is suffused with both love and remorse and constantly reminds them of their pain while also soothing it. After years of exile and misfortune, the bitter consequences of having married without their families’ consent, and unable to have children of their own, Sosuke and Oyone find a delicate equilibrium. The inevitable upset of their household by a new obligation to meet the educational expenses of Sosuke’s brash younger brother makes it impossible to keep the surface unruffled, and Sosuke suddenly abandons his home to enter a zen monastery. Looking for answers through contemplation he finds only more questions. ––Tara O’Reilly, supervising librarian, Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave.

Friends of the Library Used Bookstore recommendation “Guitar Zero” by Gary Marcus

Pushing 40 and still longing to play guitar, Gary Marcus takes us on his musical education in “Guitar Zero.” The subtitle is “The Science of Becoming Musical at Any Age.” The author explores the brain science that allows adults to develop into musicians, to learn a foreign language, to do all those things we were told had to be developed in childhood. Scientific information is presented clearly, without dumbing down the topic. This reader came away from the science with a sense that an adult brain should not be allowed to stay on cruise control. In addition to a wonderful trip through brain science, we are introduced to a wide variety of music teachers and their methods. My favorite teaching moment is Marcus’ participation in a music camp rock band. The author succeeded both in his musical education and in writing an inspiring book. Read it, then pursue that longed for skill. ––Susan Williams, volunteer, Friends of the Carpinteria Library Used Bookstore, 5103 Carpinteria Ave.

“Saving CeeCee Honeycutt” by Beth Hoffman

At 12 years old, CeeCee Honeycutt is all too used to playing caretaker for her mother, who suffers from sever psychosis. But when her mother dies and her father walks out on her, she is taken in by her great-aunt Tootie Caldwell, someone who CeeCee hadn’t even known existed until that day. After moving to Savannah, Ga. with Tootie, CeeCee discovers a new world, where women, not men, are in charge, and begins to think that she can escape the legacy of her mother’s mental illness. However, as she becomes entangled in a nest of lies, secrets and injustice, CeeCee begins to fear that she, like her mother, will have her life destroyed by mental illness. Set in the late 1960s, “Saving CeeCee Honeycutt” documents the story of a young girl coming of age in the South, during a time when racism was prominent and reputation was everything. As CeeCee learns to navigate the complicated world of adults and let go of the pain of her loss, she begins to learn about being loyal to those you love, regardless of the color of their skin, and allows herself to open up her heart to a new and eccentric family. ––Audrey Lent, Santa Barbara City College student

Sex and love are common bedfellows, and prolific Santa Barbara author T.C. Boyle spends a good deal of time in the sack with these two topics in his novel “The Inner Circle.” Boyle’s tale will be the topic of discussion at the next Coastal View and Carpinteria Library Book Club on Wednesday, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. at the Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave. Narrated by a naïve young man hired in 1940 to assist famed sex researcher Dr. Alfred Kinsey, “The Inner Circle” examines the nitty gritty elements of relationships while providing a highly

The oldest grapevine in the world grows in Slovenia. It’s over 400 years old, and its grapes are still used to make wine. However, if you want to grow grapes on an old vine, you have to prune it. Grapes only grow on freshly pruned, green shoots. A vine as old as 400 years can grow new shoots that bear fruit, but only if you cut the tops of the vine from the trunk every year. In other words, to be creative, to bear fruit, a vine needs the space to grow something fresh, and to create that space, you have to cut out all the excess. Do you need to prune your life? Do you need to remove the excess so you can grow something fresh? If you do—and you may not—welcome to the club. I do too. Let’s decide to create that space together. How do you create space for your writing?

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery? The following counts taken from Feb. 24 to March 2 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.

182 65

High Adult Count

High Pup Count

The pups are suddenly arriving in numbers

Visitors

Volunteers counted 763, which included viewers from Canada, Germany, South Dakota, Utah, New York, Maryland, Ilinois, Ohio, New Hampshire, Idaho, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Oregon, Michigan and Texas. A Girl Scout troop also visited.

Disturbances

A United States Geological Service surveyor drove an ATV on the beach, frightening all the seals into the water. He initially refused to leave, but after contact by a Sheriff’s Deputy, came up to the overlook and apologized profusely, stating he had not seen the beach sign and would see that it did not happen again. Additional disturbances were caused by a helicopter, pier worker, people near the base of the pier and a passing train.

Natural History Notes

Natural history notes: Heavy surf coupled with high tides sometimes cause moms and pups to separate, and lost pups are sometimes found on beaches distant from the rookery. In Santa Barbara County, the Santa Barbara Marine Mammal Center is federally authorized to approach and rescue distressed seals.

More Info

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 CarpSealWatch@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering.
