Cleek pirouettes her way into Clara role

this weekend’s production of “the nutcracker” ballet affords Carpinterians an opportunity to say they saw Katie Cleek perform before her name was in lights. the Carpinteria Middle school seventh-grader has set her sights on stardom, and landing the role of Clara, “the nutcracker” lead, in the Bonnie Curtis dance studio production is the first step toward what she hopes will be a career in dance. “(Cleek) is doing a beautiful job with the Clara role,” said Bonnie Curtis. “she has no fear when it comes to acting and expressing herself.” nor is Cleek afraid of putting in the hard work to achieve her dreams. a student of Curtis’ for seven years, Cleek is now enrolled in six different dance classes and regularly trains at the studio for more than 10 hours a week. Cleek has looked up to the dancers playing Clara since she completed her first plié. She played a rat alongside all the other littlest ballerinas in her first “Nutcracker,” then moved up through the roles of candy cane and party guests. In september Curtis told her that she’d been chosen to dance the sought-after role. “I was really excited,” Cleek said. “I couldn’t wait to start practicing.” she added saturday rehearsals to her normal schedule, and started watching videos of past performances to pinpoint what she could add to the part. this weekend, the curtains will rise on Cleek’s big performances. “the nutcracker” will take the stage on Friday, dec. 20 at 7 p.m. and saturday, dec. 21 at 1 p.m. at CMs, 5351 Carpinteria ave. special guest dancer Jean Michelle sayeg will perform the role of the sugar Plum Fairy.

On foot and on horseback, the group left Dahlia Court and wound through Carpinteria neighborhoods to reach its destination at the Linden Avenue church.

Security versus sensitivity

Autistic student’s threats lead to restraining order By BRANDON FASTmAN

a mother worried about her son’s wellbeing. school employees worried about the safety of themselves and their students. these are the competing interests in a standoff that, in recent days, has made its way onto the internet. debra Hosseini believes that her autistic son’s teacher, Cindy rief, is waging a campaign to ostracize him from the community. that is because Kevin Hosseini has been served a restraining order from rief as well as a teacher’s aid and a student after threatening them with violence. Kevin, 19, can no longer attend his adult life skills course provided through Carpinteria Unified school district, because he is barred from being within 100 yards of his teacher. Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Brad McVay said, “We were notified by a mental health institute, aurora vista del Mar hospital in ventura, that a person there had made threats while under medication. the patient said he wanted to stab people, so they were obligated to notify us.” Mcvay added, “this person said he was going to harm these several individuals by stabbing

them and then would shoot himself when law enforcement arrived.” Eventually, the hospital decided that the patient had been stabilized and could be released. debra said that her son needed to be checked in because he had a strong reaction to a new epilepsy medication. she believes that Rief is retaliating because she filed a complaint about the teacher a year and a half ago that resulted in two weeks of administrative leave. she has taken to the internet, posting a youtube video interview of Kevin, and adding multiple blog entries about the ordeal on her website, the-art-of-autism.com, originally intended to display Kevin’s visual art. In one entry where she referred to her son as “the rosa Parks of autism,” Hosseini also wrote, “Kevin has never directly threatened the teacher or aide. the threat was made indirectly when Kevin experienced a difficult medication change while at aurora vista del Mar hospital.” “Kevin is intimidating because he is 6-foot 3-inches

Gray hawk returns

An adult gray hawk believed to be the bird that famously wintered in Carpinteria last year was spotted two weeks ago by local birder Rob Denholtz. The gray hawk’s range extends from South and Central Americas into the American Southwest. Last year an immature member of the species was spotted in Carpinteria and documented as the first of its kind in California. Its presence inspired birders from all over the state to flock to the bird’s favored territory of Santa Claus Lane. “It is not unheard of for an out-of-range bird to return year after year to the same place to spend the winter,” reported Denholtz. “Another Mexican native, a Zonetailed Hawk, rarely seen this far north, spent 13 consecutive winters in Goleta. All are hoping that the Gray Hawk will follow suit.” Denholtz views the gray hawk’s reappearance as a good omen for birders participating in Carpinteria’s Fifth Annual Christmas Bird Count on Friday, Dec. 20. Last year, the group found a record 158 species within a 15-mile-diameter circle around Carpinteria, and organizers hope to surpass that mark this year. Anyone interested in participating should contact Denholtz at robdenholtz@gmail.com or 684-4060.

A mature gray hawk landed at Santa Claus Lane in early December. The rare bird is thought to be the same one that appeared in Carpinteria last winter and disappeared come spring.

Guide to Carpinteria’s best and brightest holiday lights Perhaps it’s motivated by the popular annual Parents for Canalino School Holiday Lights Tour or maybe a recovering economy. Or maybe Carpinteria boasts a higher percentage of festive folks due to its inherent charm. Whatever the reason, the little town is home to a disproportionately large amount of homes bedecked and bedazzled for the holidays. Coastal View News has combed the community for the finest and most festive holiday lights, and we present them to readers in an order that makes geographical sense and saves the brightest for last.

MALIbu DRIVE: Turn west off Linden Avenue onto Malibu Drive and be prepared to be wowed by the house on the corner of Malibu and Limu drives. Continue all the way to the dead end of Malibu—the cul de sac is worth a visit. EL CARRo LAnE: From Malibu, turn toward the mountains on Sterling and then hang a left onto El Carro. The next several blocks offer feast upon feast for the eyes.

SAntA MonICA GARDEnS: Head up Santa Monica Road until you see the huge “NOEL” on the corner of Venice Lane. Turn left here and wind through the neighborhood. Be sure to follow Trieste Lane to its southern end, where one of the most stunning houses on the route awaits. SERPoLLA DRIVE: If you’re on a tight schedule, skip this out-of-town destination and proceed to Star Pine. If you have the time, head west on Via Real to the Serena neighborhood. Take a right on Sentar Road, and another right on Serena Avenue. A final right onto Serpolla will lead to a nice cluster of homes decorated to the nines. StAR PInE RoAD: This dead-end street located off the mountain side of Vallecito Road has a long history of holiday spirit. The candlestick stationed in front of each house for the holidays is sold with the home. Don’t expect any jaw droppers on this street, but enjoy a slow cruise on a street that always has spirit. CAMIno tRILLADo: From Star Pine, head north on Vallecito Road and take a right onto Ogan Road. Turn left onto Camino Trillado. This street offers lots of creative holiday cheer, from a cutout Santa’s scrambling into a chimney to a bright arrow directing the jolly old elf.

Criminal flees deputies after high speed chase Public help sought in locating fugitive

David Victor Boggis 12/7/1953 - 11/06/2013

David Victor Boggis, a long time resident of Carpinteria, passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013. Known around town as “Devo Boggio,” or “Beatle Dave,” he was well known for his lifelong love of The Beatles and making family and friends his top priority. Dave’s love for people and family shined brightly in his kind and gentle ways. Dave loved playing his guitar, composing songs and walking his dog Chico around Carpinteria before heading to his beloved beach where he always felt peaceful. Although Dave cherished his quiet moments, he was always eager to welcome neighbors and his large extended family to his home. There was always music and laughter on his front porch as he lit up a barbecue, never missing a beat with his quick wit and humor. He especially enjoyed being around his many nephews and nieces where he was the beloved “young Uncle Dave” ready to tease them and have fun. His children DJ and Taly were the loves of his life. Although born and raised in Burbank, Dave’s aunt and uncle, Anita and Ed Tepper, talked him into moving to Carpinteria in the early ‘80s where most of the Tepper family resided. He quickly settled in and proudly made Carpinteria his permanent home where he put down roots and raised his family. Dave is preceded in death by his parents, Victor and Jean Boggis, and his brother, John Boggis. His father, who passed away when Dave was only 3, was a well known Burbank musical conductor who undoubtedly handed down his musical gifts to David. Dave is survived by his son David Jr. “DJ” Boggio (Shelly), his daughter Talia Miele (Frankie) and the mother of his children, Silvana Boggio Troccoli; his grandchildren, Izabella, Evangeline and Gino; his sisters, Ann Boggio and Lynn Volz; his sister-in-law, Olwen Boggis, and his close Tepper cousins, Mary Tepper-McWhirter and Gabrielle Tepper-Hotchkiss. Dave considered all his Carpinteria friends as his close family—too numerous to list. An informal gathering to celebrate David’s life will be held sometime in early 2014. Those close to David will be notified when plans solidify. PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Holy spirit, you who made me see everything and showed me the way to reach my ideals. You who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget the wrong that is done to me and who are in all instances of my life with me. I thank you for everything and confirm once more that I never want to be separated from you no matter how great the material desires may be. I want to be with you and my loved ones in your perpetual glory. Thank you for your love towards me and my loved ones. Amen Persons must pray the prayer 3 consecutive days without asking the wish. After 3rd day the wish will be granted no matter how difficult it may be. Promise to publish this dialogue as soon as favor is granted. Thank you. Advertisement

Mildred Stauffer

On the first of December, Mildred Stauffer, 95, gave up her life. It had been 79 years since we first met and held one another on a Lake Michigan beach. Mildred lived in the Carpinteria Valley from 1946 until the end. Recently the peace corner was a real passion, and she worked it hard, but a bigger love was to make people laugh. In conversation she always seemed to have some little twist or quirk that did just that. Now a cheering voice has been lost from the world. ––Royce Stauffer

Deputies chased an Oxnard man with an extensive criminal background through the streets of Carpinteria in the early morning hours of Dec. 14, but they ultimately lost the suspect when he fled on foot after exiting southbound Highway 101 at Linden Avenue. The chase followed a report made by two witnesses who noticed a man stealing their car in the 4100 block of Via Real at a little after 3 a.m. The man, who was later identified as 29-year-old Juan Miguel Bejar, took off in the car after threatening to use a gun. Bejar crashed at the scene and jumped into a green van stolen from Oxnard that was waiting for him with his brother and wife inside. A high speed chase ensued but was called off when SBCSO Bejar drove onto Highway 101 going the wrong direc- Juan Miguel Bejar is tion. Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Deputies spotted wanted for several the van again shortly afterwards at Upson and Santa criminal acts, Monica roads and followed it back onto the freeway including vehicle at Padaro Lane, this time traveling northbound in the theft and fleeing law southbound lanes. As per policy, Sheriff’s Deputies paralleled the fleeing vehicle on the right side of the enforcement. freeway. The suspect made a U-turn at Sheffield Drive and got back on the freeway going southbound in the correct direction. A Sheriff’s Deputy used a pursuit tactic to force the fleeing car to abruptly turn sideways, causing the driver to lose control and stop. Bejar fled on foot and could not be located during search efforts by deputies and the Sheriff’s K9 Unit. His wife, 24-year-old Sandra Lopez, and his brother, 28-year-old Jose Bejar, both of Oxnard, were arrested and charged with attempted burglary, receiving stolen property, conspiracy and possession of a controlled substance. Stolen property and burglary tools were found in the van, but the reported firearm was not. The Sheriff’s Office recently learned that on Dec. 5 a vehicle and suspect matching the description of Bejar and the van were involved in a theft and pursuit with the Ventura Police Department. In this case, the vehicle also was driven the wrong way on the freeway several times while being pursued by law enforcement. Anyone with information on Bejar’s whereabouts is advised to call 9-1-1 or the anonymous tip line at 681-4171.

In Memory of MIKE (MIGUEL JULIO) RIVERA

July 8, 1935 -- December 21, 2009 Dearest Mike: Four years ago you flew into the arms of the angels. How do we tell your story? With tears and laughter – knowing that each of us was changed by knowing you…you were not religious, but oh you were so spiritual…you saw the good in everyone; you loved to meet new people and they went away having made a new friend. Santa Barbara was your home and you loved every part of it. We celebrate you with JOY in our hearts; JOY because you gave JOY to so many by the little things you did; sharing the fruits of your gardening; visiting friends and family who could not drive; telling jokes, always smiling when I walked in the door from work. In the words of Winnie the Pooh, “When you see someone putting on his BIG BOOTS, you can be sure that an adventure is going to happen.” Each day with you was an amazing adventure cradled by love. Thank you for the joyful memories we keep forever in our hearts. Your loving wife, Marilou, and the entire Rivera Family

and he is a big person,” said Hosseini. “People may be intimidated by his size...but he is really a kind and loving person.” She has written online that he was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder as well as autism, but when speaking to Coastal View News, she said she wasn’t sure he demonstrated the symptoms anymore. Because of legal concerns, neither Rief nor the district could say much about the situation. Rief did issue a statement that reads, “I believe that the CUSD staff, my student and myself are being slandered where all we have done is exercise our legal rights to protect ourselves as we were counseled to do so by the sheriffs who contacted us.” Mary Watts, the mother of an autistic son who has had Rief as a teacher for five years, said, “She’s always had the best interest of students at heart. And she’s a pretty patient person.” Both Watts’ son and Kevin are enrolled in the Success and Education of Adult Life Skills (SEALS) program based at Carpinteria Middle School and run by the district. Public school districts are required to offer programs that help students with developmental disabilities who have finished high school transition to adult life. Students are not required to attend. Hosseini said she is seeking a residential facility for her son. Meanwhile, with a school shooting just last week in Colorado, school safety is a paramount concern. CUSD Superintendent Paul Cordeiro, who has been meeting with both parties, said that the “national discussion about privacy and security” was playing out in his district. “I can’t prevent the mom from saying what she wants to say,” he said, but he declined to comment on the merits of her claims. He did point out that since the school massacre in Newtown, Conn. just over a year ago, CUSD has implemented several safety measures including lockdown drills, a tip line, improved communication and the requirement of ID badges for visitors. “We are striking the balance between a secure campus without making it look like an incarceration facility,” he said. A judge will decide in a Dec. 30 court hearing whether to make the temporary restraining order against Kevin Hosseini permanent.

When Christmas hits

Each year Christmas hits me at a different time and in a different way. You know what I mean, that joyous instant when you remember decorating snowmen cookies with your brother or saving your allowance to buy your mom a present you picked out yourself or holding your first child up to see the Christmas lights. It could happen when a certain carol floats through the air as you drive or cook or shop. Or it could happen watching “A Christmas Carol” for the MELINDA 40th time or reading “The Night Before Christmas.” Or it could happen opening the box of Christmas decorations and seeing the ornament you made in third grade. It could happen any time in December. It could happen in any place. Just rest assured, it will happen. This year it happened to me in the Christmas tree lot. We aren’t having everyone home this Christmas. We already have a small, live tree we can roll into the house and decorate. We agreed we didn’t need to buy a large, cut tree this year. Yet I found myself in the tree lot, smelling that delicious spicy fragrance, scouting out the best “little” tree. I told myself I could put it on the coffee table to make it seem more like a big tree. I told myself part of the purchase price goes to charity. But the bottom line is having a fresh Christmas tree makes me happy. I don’t put up a tree for my sons or even my grandsons. I put it up for me. It makes me think of my dad and how he loved getting a big tree, installing it in the house and decorating it. My mom rarely had anything to do with the tree, nor did my brother. The tree was my dad’s job and eventually mine. Walking through the tree lot was like walking back in time to a place I loved, to people I loved. And that was the moment this year, the moment that Christmas hit me. Looking back, I had a fairly normal childhood. Of course we had our version of hard times and pain, like the year my mom had breast cancer or the year my dad’s crop froze, but I can’t remember one bad Christmas. There was always the tree with the usual decorations, good food, a special box of See’s chocolates, presents, games and a collection of various relatives. One Christmas I argued with my brother—not my most shining moment—and one Christmas I baked him sugar cookies. Most Christmases, my dad and I decorated the tree together, and then my dad was too sick, and I had to do it alone, with him supervising. My dad also taught me about giving. Now this is particularly interesting because my dad was a penny pincher. He grew up during the Depression and didn’t spend money easily. Yet every Christmas he went searching for a special gift for my mom—and it was rarely cheap. It was clear he wanted to give her the moon, but he settled for a longed-for sweater or a new stereo or a dishwasher. His enthusiasm for Christmas carried over to me. He showed me that it is the giving that brings joy. As a child, I was all excited about the presents. But now that I’m mature, I really have little interest in what I’m “getting.”

Once I’m hit, I thoroughly enjoy being carried along by the Christmas experience. So face it. It’s coming.

Spotlight on Lisa Tejeda

Give ‘em an inch

BY KIM DRAIN

Another new year looming, another round of promises we make to ourselves to finally get fit and healthy (among other admirable goals). Searching for a bit of inspiration? Look no further than Lisa Tejeda, who got a jumpstart on her resolution earlier this year by taking those first few steps—on the treadmill. Working with trainer Warren Jones, Tejeda has made impressive strides towards achieving not only her fitness goals, but her career goals as well. Juggling a busy schedule as a student in the Culinary Arts Program at SBCC, and working as a bartender at the family-run business, Señor Frog’s, Tejeda was in need of an energy boost just to get through a typical day. “My family has always been supportive,” Tejeda explained. “But Warren was the one who really pushed me through the hard physical challenges. He’s my vitamin pill for the day!” Tejeda’s impressive, head-turning results have only steeled her resolve to make 2014 the best year yet. Occupation: Student, Santa Barbara City College; and bartender, Señor Frog’s. How long have you been in Carpinteria? This has been my home for most of my life. I have lived other places, but I always return to Carpinteria as no place else feels so safe and welcoming. What is the best thing about what you do? I like to create. And I am a “people person;” I love meeting and being around all kinds of people. I like making people happy, whether it is by giving them a good meal or a good haircut.” (Tejeda also has worked as a hair stylist) What is the most challenging thing about what you do? Occasionally you might run into a tough customer. But I never let somebody’s bad mood get to me; I let it roll right off. I just put on a big smile, and nobody ever knows what is going on inside of me! I think what we present to the world is a reflection to others. If you smile at people, they will smile back. If you weren’t doing this, what would you be doing? Eventually, I would like to open a catering business. I’m always trying to create and perfect new recipes. With Warren’s help, I have learned a new way of eating healthfully, although I can create any type of meal requested. It’s tempting at work to eat the chips and other goodies, but my brother-in-law whips up some great green smoothies and veggies for all of us, too. I still have my cheat days.

A man who was permitted to sleep in an SUV parked in a Santa Monica Road driveway allegedly stole a separate car owned by the man who had given him shelter. The alleged auto thief, 30, was said to have had a falling out with his girlfriend, leading to his need for a place to crash. He was offered the SUV, but when the SUV owner left town, his guest reportedly took advantage of the key that was kept in the other car in the driveway. The vehicle owner’s son had noticed the missing vehicle when his father was out of town, so he Facebooked the alleged car thief. The alleged thief reportedly admitted to having the car and said he’d return it in a couple of days. Those days passed, and the vehicle owner returned home; yet the car was still absent. Deputies took the report but were unable to track down the vehicle.

Nail fraud

A nail salon owner complained that she had been ripped off by her customers on Dec. 3 on Casitas Pass Road. Several checks she had accepted as payment and $700 in cash vanished from her purse. She suspected that somebody from among a group of young women customers— likely the one with tattooed eyebrows,

www. coastalview. com

she noted—had dug into her purse and removed the check. She remembered the women congregating near the purse when settling the bill for their mani-pedis. The store lacked surveillance cameras, so deputies had no leads.

Christmas miracle

A man who would have been out $1,200 was given some good news thanks to the conscientious act of a stranger. He dropped his wallet, but the woman who recovered it near Linden Avenue and Dorrance Way, phoned in her find to sheriff’s deputies, who tracked down the man and returned his dollars.

Other reports:

Motor vehicle theft: Ash Avenue Suspicious circumstances: Via Real Theft: Birch Street, Cravens Lane, Casitas Pass Road, Lookout Park Road Vandalism: Concha Loma, Lillie Avenue

It’s a Gift That Gives Both Ways Consider a Gift Annuity

What was your motivation for launching your fitness plan? It wasn’t really a plan at first. I knew I could be looking at future health concerns if I didn’t take action. I wanted to be around for my children and my grandchildren. I felt like all my accomplishments were going to go down the drain if I didn’t make some changes. How do you unwind after a busy day? I love music. And dancing makes me happy. I go once a week to a fun salsa dance class. I like to read motivational books. I’m a very spiritual person, and I draw on my inner strength to help me get through the tough times and enjoy the good times.

Do you have a favorite saying or motto that you try to live by? “Make each day count.” There’s another passage I like that goes something like this, “Pay now, so you can play later.” I am working hard and paying my dues now because I want to play later.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” duncan’s reel deal

let’s go!

…make Christmas memories at the movies

The Plaza Playhouse Theater, located at 4916 Carpinteria Ave., has filled its weekend lineup with classic holiday films. On Friday, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m., the original 1947 black and white version of “Miracle on 34th Street” will be screened. Saturday, Dec. 20, at 7 p.m. is the second annual screening of “A Christmas Story,” the classic film of the unattainable Red Ryder BB gun. A genuine leg lamp will be raffled off that evening. On Sunday, Dec. 21, the theater will screen a 2 p.m. matinee of “The Muppet Christmas Carol.” Tickets for each show are $5 general admission and available in advance at Curious Cup bookstore, 5285 Carpinteria Ave.

MATT DUNCAN Last time we saw them, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mallark (Josh Hutcherson) narrowly escaped what was supposed to be certain death and emerged as the heroes of the Hunger Games. They became the darlings of the games with their semi-maybe-feigned romance, while at the same time thoroughly pissing off the powers that be—President Snow (Donald Sutherland), in particular—with the way they won the games. They were defiant. They were not willing to turn against each other. They refused to be pawns in the Capital’s manipulation game. That’s where we left off. And, to a certain extent, when “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” picks up, not a whole lot has changed. Katniss and Peeta are still crowd favorites. Everybody is still in love with them. And they are still pretending to be in love with each other. But, behind the scenes, President Snow is still on edge about the fact that many of those under the thumb of the Capital see Katniss and Peeta as revolutionary figures—as symbols of hope and rebellion. Snow wants to find a way to dispose of Katniss and Peeta, but he has to do it without firing up the masses. So he, along with the new head gamemaker, Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), comes up with a brilliant plan to do just that. The idea is to shake up the upcoming Hunger Games with a twist: This time the tributes are to be chosen from among the past winners. You see, usually when someone wins the Hunger Games, he or she gets to just sit back, relax and cruise through the rest of life like some kind of conquering hero who never has to lift a finger ever again. Not this time. This time the champions have to reenter the arena. This serves two purposes. First, President Snow gets to ratchet up the fear even more. Now the past champions aren’t even safe. How awful! Second, President Snow gets to put Katniss and Peeta back in harm’s way. Once again, these heroic lovebirds have to fight for their lives. How tragic! But how entertaining! Katniss and Peeta aren’t thrilled, of course. In fact, most of the former champions are less than enthusiastic about having to do it all over again. President Snow is trying his best to keep everyone under control. But discontentment is brewing under the surface. As for Katniss and Peeta, they are thrown back into the arena very distressed and very overwhelmed. They do not know what to do. They are not sure whether they are all alone or whether something is going on in the background

… move to the music

Children of all sizes will be swept up in the rhythm and soul of Sandcastle Music Together when the children’s music program returns to Carpinteria on Friday, Dec. 20 at 10:30 a.m. for a performance that inspires participation in the form of dance, song and instrument play. The free event will be held at the Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave. To find out more, call the library at 684-4314. that might tilt the balance in their favor. At any rate, their margin for error is, once again, razor thin. I like the first “Hunger Games” book better than the second. And the same goes for the movies. The first “Hunger Games” is innovative, interesting and clever. The whole premise is novel and thought provoking. This second movie— “Hunger Games: Catching Fire”—does not have that added punch. Maybe that is just how things work with sequels like this. But there is nothing particularly innovative or intriguing here. Still, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is definitely a good movie. And it is definitely a worthy adaptation of the novel. The acting is quite good. The cinematography, set design and costumes are impressive. And the occasional plot twists, along with the magnetic energy of the characters, are more than enough to keep one’s attention. It would have been nice if this series kept pushing the envelope, kept developing the themes introduced in the first installment and kept finding new ways to draw our attention to the various facets of the characters and their environment. But all of that super interesting stuff is front-loaded. It is there from the start. It came in last time. So the rest of the story feels much more like a straight-up action/ adventure drama. There isn’t necessarily anything wrong with that.

Procession honors Our Lady of Guadalupe Photos by EvElyn CErvantEs

The Peña family has brought Carpinterians together for four Decembers now to celebrate the Virgin of Guadalupe. This year, 60 devotees gathered for a feast and mariachi at Dahlia Court on Dec. 12 before leaving on a procession of marchers and horseback riders to St. Joseph Catholic Church prior to Our Lady of Guadalupe mass. Isabella Peña commented that her family started the event to bring people together.

Devotees hold a depiction of Mary, the biblical mother of Jesus who is believed to have appeared in Guadalupe, Mexico, centuries ago, during their march to st. Joseph Church.

Members of santa barbara-based Mariachi Jalisco ramp up the crowds for the Fiesta of the virgin of Guadalupe.

Summerland’s sweet little Christmas the summerland shore FRAN DAVIS

The lights are still twinkling all along our downtown strip. The Nugget has a blow-up santa and sleigh mounted over its porch. For the first two weeks of the month, we had our own small Christmas tree lot, a cheery sight coming into town from the north. Operated by Lillie’s Flowers (they have the stand near Tricounty Produce in s.B.), it sold burly little Noble firs, along with flowers and poinsettias in containers shaped like dogs and bears and reindeer. The summerland Citizens association had its happy little holiday event at the ever-welcoming Café Luna last week. Bonita’s has special Summerland-themed Christmas cards and a men-only shopping night (guys shopping for gals) this evening. and the jewelry store Waxing Poetic, completely rimmed with evening lights, looks like a miniature jewel box itself. Further signs of the economic recovery, i think—local businesses lit and shiny and open, even late.

A gathering of ladies

When Fran voss calls me, my caller ID says its Richard Voss. Summerland’s beloved “Rev” has been gone five years now, but his memory persists, even on phones. His widow Fran had a “coffee” earlier this month and invited all her Whitney avenue women neighbors. There were 10 of us and enough food and treats to feed twice as many. Fran’s is the best, most Christmasy decorated house I know. I’m a minimalist in that regard, leaving the big tree bounty to my kids and grandkids. so it was good to be completely surrounded by Christmas largesse, everything from tree to mantelpiece to tables fully decked out. and it was very nice to sit down with neighbors (the ones i only see to wave at)

over coffee and chat and holiday goodies. Fran told us the Rev came from a Dutch reform background, with very little fanfare around the holidays. He was lucky to get an orange, she said. When he married her, a full-blood Italian, his world flipped over, and he loved it. He used to sit in a chair by the window and stare at the tall Christmas tree in the corner. When that tree fell over, breaking many of Fran’s glass ornaments and her heart along with them, they got a smaller tree. The Rev told her he loved it even more. He was like that.

Snow memory

There were snow days where my family lived in the Sierra. Sometimes enough to cancel school (oh, joy!), which meant the skiing would be good just up the road. Riding the ski club bus up to Echo Summit was another kind of high. But here’s my favorite memory of snow: One January my husband attended an american Historical association meeting in Washington D.C., and i went along. While he was busy, I toured. Just as it was beginning to snow, i hopped on a trolley tour. it stopped at the Washington Cathedral, and I got to see, very far up, the “space” stained glass window that has a moon rock embedded in it. By the time we got back outside it was really snowing, all tours were cancelled, and the driver was a little worried. it was getting late, and we were crawling, rather than dashing through the snow. When we passed by the capitol building, the driver stopped. it was dusk, the dome lighted. Beyond spiky snow-laden trees, flakes swirled around the gleaming dome—a Christmas card scene. Our capitol, seat of the nation, steady in the snowy night. I’ve never felt so proud.

What do the following have in common? LeeLee s The Murph The Wild Wild West The Bunni? Are we talking old movies, the latest dances or your new girlfriend s nicknames? No, it s simply a few of the fresh grilled panini and burgers being devoured at The Cork.

KEEP TALKING

The little Christmas tree lot in Summerland sold various holiday decorations for the first two weeks of December.

A good wrap for a cause

I’ll be doing gift wrapping for LifeChronicles again this year. Every holiday season volunteers wrap gifts at Paseo Nuevo and La Cumbre Plaza in return for donations to LifeChronicles, a nonprofit organization that videotapes the life stories of the elderly and seriously ill. Young families where one of the parents may be dying from cancer or another disease want to preserve a record of the mom’s or dad’s face, gesture, words. Or a grandfather may want to leave a last message for his kids and grandkids. The videos on their website (LifeChronicles. org) are very moving. We tend to forget that not everyone gets to have a happy Hallmark holiday, that some are facing terminal illnesses and trying to figure some way, the best way, to leave some kind of record of their life, a way for their families to remember them. LifeChronicles is donation-based and all-volunteer, with videotaping done at low cost or free. This year the agents for Rick Caruso, the new owner of Paseo Nuevo, weren’t as accommodating or charitably minded as past owners. They wanted to know if volunteers had a dress code and whether they’d been drug tested. Drug tested? We’re talking volunteers who make a space in their busy holiday season to do some good, exactly the kind of good the season calls for, and they’re asking about drugs? I hate to lay this on an L.A. mentality, but it seems obvious. I’ve never been to the Grove, Caruso’s big signature mall in L.A., but I’m thinking they don’t allow many, if any, charitable activities in the door. Oh yes, and the “agent” wouldn’t let Life Chronicles set up in the middle of Paseo Nuevo where the shoppers are, insisting that the volunteers do their job at the covered west end of the mall, an area regularly raked by a cold wind. Makes you consider the advantages of coal in some people’s stockings.

Rosebud washes ashore while columnist Fran Davis watches. She was gone the next day.

Little lost boat

Walking the beach last week, i stopped to watch the waves beach a small boat. The skiff was full of water, but still floated, yawing and twisting in the waves as it hit sand. its sides were thoroughly varnished with sticky oil. Clearly it had been drifting for a long time. i could just make out the name painted on skiff’s stern. Rosebud. Instantly calling to mind that old movie “Citizen Kane,” where the Hearst character’s dying words were “rosebud.” It was the name of his childhood sled, shown tossed onto a fire at the movie’s end. The next day when I went back; Rosebud was gone. Drifted on maybe or, hopefully, salvaged, rescued to float again. One good thing: Wearing a Santa hat while stuck in traffic and seeing the other motorists smile. Fran Davis is an award-winning writer and freelance editor whose work appears in magazines, print and online journals, anthologies and travel books. She has lived in Summerland most of her life.

Joshua Yaro has moved on to Georgetown University but was recently named All-American for his senior season at Cate School.

Cate graduate Yaro named high school AllAmerican

Although he marched across the Cate school graduation stage last June, accolades for Joshua Yaro’s soccer career are still rolling in. the current Georgetown university soccer player recently received word that he is a National soccer Coaches Association of America All-American for his senior soccer season. “We’re thrilled Joshua has received the recognition he deserves for last season,” says Cate director of Athletics Wade Ransom. Yaro follows Cate’s 2012 graduate ema boateng who was an AllAmerican the previous year. head soccer coach pete mack stated, “(Yaro) makes the second Cate boys soccer player to receive an All-American in two years. No doubt that’s a rare achievement for any high school!”

Warrior boys soccer beats Cate

NEXT WEEK: Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic

December 19 - 25, 2013

Warrior senior Brandon Landeros notched the game’s first assist to put a charge into the Warriors’ 4-0 victory and earned himself the Crosstown Showdown Player of the Game plaque, sponsored by Coastal View News.

Brandon Landeros wins CVN Player of the Game By Peter DuGré

Carpinteria High School boys soccer pounced on Cate School after coming up short against the high-powered Rams the past two seasons. For his part in staking the Warriors to a 2-0 lead within the game’s first 10 minutes, Warrior senior Brandon Landeros earned the Crosstown Showdown Player of the Game Award. The Warriors collected the 4-0 win on Dec. 11 at Cate School, but the Rams still lead the three-year series 2-1. Five minutes into the match, Warrior forward Ivan Julian dribbled deep into the right corner and sent a cross into the box. A streaking Landeros headed the ball to the foot of Diego Contreras, who sank the shot for his first of two goals in the match. Warrior coach Leonardo Quintero commended Landeros for his leadership in his third varsity season and third time playing Cate. He’s one of the only Warriors that fought and lost to Cate over the last two seasons. “He really set the tone

early,” Quintero said. Contreras again scored just five minutes later off a Victor Saldaña assist to put the Warriors up 2-0. Cate coach Peter Mack credited the Warriors for executing their game plan. He also said the game had similarities to last year’s match, only the opposite team got off to the fast start. “It reminded me a little of last year’s game,” he said. “This time, the first two shots they took scored. That’s a tough hole to come out of.” Last season Cate scored two goals in no time. Cate had a chance on a breakaway by Tyler Douglas early in the game, but Warrior goalie Lalo Delgado stepped up to snuff the shot, which would have evened the score at 1-1. Then Cate’s Abraham Tall knocked a near-miss header just wide of the goal moments later to keep Cate on the attack. Delgado’s shutout was his third straight. Julian scored in the 28th minute off a Luis Garcia cross pass to put the Warriors

up 3-0. Cate built pressure and several shot attempts but could not net a goal before the half. Warrior Francisco Arroyo stole a pass five minutes into the second half and slipped it past Cate goalie Keller Mochel, who had come out to meet Arroyo on the breakaway. It was the second match of the season for the Rams, and key attacker Geoffrey

Acheampong was limited due to an injury. “This was only our second game of the season and Carp just looked sharper, more seasoned, and more prepared to execute their game plan,” commented Mack. The Warriors improved to 4-1 and landed the 10th spot in Division 4 rankings after the victory. The Rams fell to 1-1 and sixth in Division 6 rankings.

Cate star Geoffrey Acheampong was limited due to a mild strain against the Warriors but still managed to shake Francisco Arroyo.

Warrior boys basketball outpaces Rams

BILL SWING

Warrior Bryson Frazer flies at the rim in a win over Cate School.

In a match-up between Carpinteria’s two boys basketball teams, Carpinteria High School came out on top by a score of 58-37 over Cate School on the Cate Mesa on Dec. 10. Swift moving Warrior point guard Omar Miranda dropped 18 points, and senior big man Duncan Gordon had 11 in the Warriors’ winning effort. The Warriors barely led at halftime, 24-22, but used a 23-3 third quarter to put the game away. According to coach Johnny Ward, “(The team) came out swarming on defense to start the third quarter.” Ward commented that Bryson Frazer provided energy off the bench in his first game suited up for the Warriors. Collin Nathanson also contributed smooth passing and stingy defense for CHS, Ward said. For the Rams, sophomore Clinton Hall led with 11 points, and senior center Ryan Baird had 10 points. Rams coach Bryan Rodriguez commented that his team showed resilience in the fourth quarter following a dismal third quarter. “Despite being down by over 20, the Rams refused to give up, and they focused on giving Carpinteria High a taste of their own full court pressure,” Rodriguez said. It was the first game of the season for the Rams.

The Rams were 7-4 and advanced to the second round of playoffs.

Cate trailed 19-13 at halftime and had possession with three seconds left but could not get a good look at the basket. “The story of the night was the toughness and resolve the girls showed to match Carpinteria’s intensity,” commented Cate assistant coach Jay Dorion.

Holiday jeer for the health of it! ALI JAVANBAKHT, MD The holidays are a time of renewal and rebirth. Celestially, the days start to get longer and thus, in many cultures, the winter solstice represents the victory of light over darkness. For some it is the birth of a prominent religious figure (who shall remain nameless, but suffice it to say that his dad was probably harping on him to “get a haircut!”). For other religions, it is a Festival of Lights. But the one thing we all agree on is that the holidays are a time to tolerate family to the extent humanly possible and to be outraged at how many old ladies people will punch for a good deal on personal electronics. The holidays are also a time to tend to people in need. Homeless shelters offer meals and housing to people who have neither. During my psychiatry rotation in medical school, we were shipped off to a homeless shelter during the holidays to serve a meal to the homeless. Our instructor told us we had to eat said meal with the homeless. While this seemed like a noble endeavor at first, it quickly lost much of its luster when the instructor himself did not join us on the outing. Maybe there was a day spa retreat with hospital executives that he “had” to attend. So us scared medical students huddled together amidst a sea of people in heavily layered clothing who didn’t seem to be feeling much holiday cheer. As I worked my way through the meal, I was struck by how rich it was—even by Wisconsin standards. Later, one of the regular workers at the shelter told me it was because they didn’t know when the homeless would get their next meal. While many of us may never know what it’s like to be homeless during the holidays, our bodies will still behave as if they don’t know when our next meal will be coming because for tens of thousands of years, that’s how life was. So we are driven to seek out high calorie foods. Our taste buds urge us to eat sweet, starchy and greasy things. Our stomachs feel fuller and our brain’s pleasure centers are tickled when we load up on sugar and fat. If this is the case, then what chance do we have at eating well through the holidays? Thankfully, there are many strategies to give us a chance. First is access. If a food item is within

reach, it will likely get eaten whether or not we are hungry and regardless of how much we like the food item. So, having better foods at hand and within sight, and keeping heavier foods out of sight and out of reach is one step. Second is mindfulness. Mindfulness basically means being aware. Too often food is consumed without much thought. Eating is one of the very few activities that engages all five senses. So eating a high calorie item with full awareness, experiencing its sight, sound, smell, taste and feel can make the experience of eating such things more enjoyable. As an added benefit, it slows down the eating rate. And third is structure. Planning the enjoyment of treats can help reign said enjoyment in. This can be as simple as scheduling the time when treats are to be consumed. Knowing that there is pleasure to be had can sometimes calm the brain from driving us to incessantly seek and consume high calorie foods. But most importantly, let’s keep in mind that the holidays are only once a year. If our routine during the rest of the year is consistently good, it still can help keep our bodies and minds healthy despite lapses in diligence for a few weeks. So as we all enjoy the company of family and form new lifelong memories this holiday season, let’s celebrate with that food-insecure beast inside us. Pour it a drink and give it a meal. After all, it, too, just like family—can be tolerated to the extent humanly possible. Dr. Javanbakht is a Board Certified Family Physician practicing at the Carpinteria Branch of Sansum Clinic. His column won second place for best original writing at the 2010 AFCP awards. A collection of his columns has been compiled into a book entitled, “For the Health of It!” available at Xlibris. com.

THAT’S A WRAP: This year, before you ball up the wrapping paper and toss it, consider the whales. The Origami Whales Project, which uses origami whales to symbolize the tens of thousands of protected whales that have been illegally killed, will accept donations of wrapping paper to be repurposed. Paper should be dropped off at Curious Cup, 5285 Carpinteria Ave., by Dec. 31. HAULERS CELEBRATE HOLIDAYS: For the next two weeks, E.J.

Holiday Haulers deliver Foodbank bounty

Area business owners and generous individuals have reunited under the name Foodbank Holiday Haulers to connect donated food to those in need. “Various organizations have food drives and the Foodbank doesn’t have the resources to pick up all of the donations. That’s where we come in.” said Lisa Cullen of Montecito Landscape, who founded the group five years ago. “The Santa Barbara County Foodbank is a vital part of our community, distributing good, nutritious food to those in need, most of whom are seniors and children,” Cullen stated. “We are able to play an important role in their mission of ending hunger and transforming the health of Santa Barbara County.” To have a Holiday Hauler pick up a food donation this holiday season, contact Melissa Howard at the Foodbank, 967-5741 x112, or call Lisa Cullen of Montecito Landscape at 969-3984 or visit foodbanksbc.org.

A tour of Central Europe turned into a family reunion for Tony and Linda Perez. They visited family in Taurage, Lithuania, where they were treated to dinner with numerous cousins with whom the Carpinterians shared Coastal View News. The Perezes also served as ambassadors to a school project in Lithuania that was funded by Linda’s mother and brought the school up to UNESCO special recognition standards. “The gratefulness and hard work of the students and teachers was evident and very heartwarming,” stated the Perezes.

Chamber group conquers Costa Rica

A group of 24 travelers joined Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce and touched down in Costa Rica in early November. They visited San Jose, Poas Volcano Park, La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano National Park and Monteverde. The adventurers toured rainforests, coffee plantations, butterfly gardens, hummingbird galleries and orchid farms, among other places. A handful of the bravest of the bunch took a zip line plunge, and the whole crew partook in a jungle crocodile cruise. Of the group, 19 were repeats from previous chamber trips, which are offered regularly.
