Violent crash leaves many fuzzy details for investigators By PeTer Dugré
Heart-wrenching emotion gave way to relief that Carpinteria High School senior Jonathan Esqueda’s condition was improving following an Oct. 26 car accident described as “extremely violent” by Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Jim Rampton. Esqueda, the sole occupant CORnERSTOnE of his vehicle, suffered serious CHS Senior head, chest and pelvic injuries Jonathan esqueda and was closely monitored in the intensive care unit at Cottage Hospital following the collision at Linden Avenue and El Carro Lane at 10:15 p.m. By the time the school bell rang on Oct. 28, students were still recoiling from news that the Warrior football running back and linebacker had been hospitalized over the weekend. Rampton said Esqueda’s vehicle was broadsided at the driver’s door and the impact caused a 1-foot intrusion into the vehicle, which was plowed into a telephone pole on the other side after impact. The 17-year-old remained unconscious while being treated

A majority of grants will be used for classroom technology upgrades in the form of tablets and laptops. “We are thrilled that we could fund these requests,” said Alpert, who commented that it was the greatest dollar amount ever donated from CarpA-Cabana proceeds.

briefly Purchased for $15 at a thrift store, this 23- by 35-inch batik painting by Chinese-born artist Chuah Thean Teng was resold for $14,000.
Thrift store painting reaps $14,000 By Lea Boyd
Christina Organista Welch never expected that a visit to Destined for Grace thrift store on Carpinteria Avenue would make her $14,000 richer. The Carpinteria native, who now lives in Ojai, purchased a painting at the store in April that she sold this month for nearly a 1,000 percent markup. “There’s stuff out there,” Welch concluded. “You just never know what you’re going to find.” In this case, Welch found something quite special that had gone unrecognized by its former owner and the thrift store itself. The tropical batik painting she purchased for $15 proved to be a work by batik master Chuah Thean Teng, who lived from 1912 to 2008 and whose art pieces painted on silk have received international acclaim. The artist, who was born in China but moved to Malaysia, is considered the father of batik fine art in Malaysia. Santa Barbara-based art appraiser Richard Holgate, who helped Welch to determine the value of the work and locate a buyer, said that in his 20 years in the antiques business, very few discoveries have proven so lucrative. “It’s extremely rare that it happens this way,” he said. “Normally it’s the other way around; people think they have something and they don’t.” Welch, whose home furnishings include many thrift store finds, was shopping in the local Destined for Grace store for the first time ever when the painting caught her eye. “I turned the corner and thought, ‘Wow! Look at that painting. It’s nice,” she recalled. Despite her attraction to the piece, she left the store without making the purchase because she didn’t have wall space for it in her home, she said.
She chatted about the painting with the owner of a Carpinteria antique store, who said he could not leave his business to check it out and did not want Welch to make the purchase for him sight unseen. He did accept her offer to buy the piece and have him reimburse her if he decided it would be a good fit for his store. Plans changed, however, when Welch got the painting to her car and felt a strong compulsion to keep it. She found the painter’s signature and discovered online that he was considered a master whose works sell for tens of thousands of dollars. “I started freaking out,” she said. Over the next few months, Welch sought out advice from various experts and ultimately decided to put the Teng painting up for sale on askart.com, a website used by buyers and sellers in the art business. Based on Holgate’s determination that the work was in extremely good condition, they set the asking price at $15,000. Low offers trickled in, but Welch decided to wait for the right buyer to connect with the piece. She shuffled the painting between her house and her parents’ Carpinteria home, nervous to have such a valuable item on her hands. Just before her listing on askart.com expired, a $12,000 offer came in from Malaysia. She countered with $14,000, and a deal was struck. The unexpected windfall helped Welch to pay some bills and will also fund a trip to Disneyland for herself, her husband and their 3-year-old daughter. Destined for Grace also benefited from the sale. Welch donated 10 percent of her profit back to the local organization whose mission is to help underserved children in Haiti.
Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection district staff members, along with Rotarian and City Councilman Wade Nomura, display the “jaws of life” that will soon be used to save lives in Salamanca, Mexico.
Fire district and Rotary coordinate “jaws of life” donation
The Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District recently donated a surplus “jaws of life” mechanism to the community of Salamanca, Mexico. The community’s need for the device was identified at a recent Rotary International conference in San Luis Obispo, where Rotary Governor Wolfgang Stuellenberg of Queretaro, Mexico met with local Rotarian Wade Nomura with a list of needs. Fire Chief Mike Mingee offered the unit, which had been replaced by CSFPD, to the Rotary cooperative project. “We are happy to pass this tool on to the Rotarians and emergency response teams of Salamanca, and it means a lot to be able to help out wherever we can,” said Mingee. Nomura will take a team of Rotarians to Salamanca and Queretaro in April to complete multiple hands-on projects with the local Rotarians there. Members of the CSFPD staff will join Nomura to share their experiences and technology updates. Other cooperative projects pending are donations of defibrillators, ambulances, mammogram machines, and more “jaws of life” that will be donated or purchased at a discounted price to be distributed through the Rotary network in Central Mexico.
City to consider mixed-use on bluffs
A proposal for a mixed-use development on Carpinteria Bluffs II will be conceptually reviewed in a joint meeting of the Carpinteria City Council and Planning Commission on Monday, Nov. 4 at 5:30 p.m. at city hall, 5775 Carpinteria Ave. Plans for the 3.62-acre lot east of S&S Seeds include 14,000 square feet of office space and 18 residential units ranging in size from 2,500 to 4,000 square feet. As proposed, the office component occupies the ground floor of the structure closest to Carpinteria Avenue, with subterranean parking constructed below. Seven attached residential units would occupy the second floor, and 11 detached two-story residences located in two rows would occupy the area between the mixed-use building and the bluff.

This ‘n’ that Let’s do the time warp again: While most Carpinterians are nestled all snug in their beds at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, the time will change to 1 a.m. The end of daylight saving time will result in brighter mornings and darker evenings. downtown despair: The windows of many downtown Linden Avenue businesses met with a sharp object wielded by a vandal over the weekend. Glass replacement will cost commercial tenants and building owners a pretty penny, and it is likely cameras will be erected to discourage a repeat performance. avoFest Lives on: Larry Nimmer and his camera teamed up again to shoot a video of this year’s California Avocado Festival for the City of Carpinteria. The festival footage can be viewed at youtube.com/nimmerpictures. Just can’t Let it sLide: One of two popular tube slides at Memorial Park is now boarded up and off limits to tykes indefinitely. After a crack at the base of the structure could not be mended, the city Parks and Recreation Department closed the slide and ordered a replacement, which could take several months to arrive. market hours move: Winter hours for the Carpinteria farmers market will set in on Thursday, Nov. 7. To account for the shorter days, the market will be open from 3 to 6 p.m. getting thicker: Film crews for Alan Thicke’s quasi-reality show “The Thicke of Things” keep popping up around town. This week, the 1980s sitcom star and his family, who live on a Carpinteria ranch, were filmed at Tony’s Pizza and Pastaria. scaredy cats: The good fun of Halloween is not always shared by pets. Santa Barbara County Animal Services reminds residents that pets should be kept inside and out of reach of candy for their safety. They should wear collars with ID tags because frequently opened doors provide a perfect opportunity for escape. take a stand: A new produce stand popped up recently along Highway 150, offering fruits, veggies and cheeses from Casitas Valley Creamery. Located eight miles from Highway 101, just past the pigeon farm, the stand is open on weekends. crying the bLues: Blue Pacific, a clothing boutique with a long history on Linden Avenue, will be closing its doors for good on Oct. 31. No details were available on what may replace the retailer in its downtown space.
Ode to the old art center
The Carpinteria Valley Art Center is currently being overhauled, modernized or just updated. Whatever! Unfortunately, Carpinteria’s favorite outbuilding or pavilion has been destroyed; it’s gone. Have you ever walked by this crude structure and observed a bunch of kids with their paint and easels having a playful creative good time? Have you ever enjoyed one of our local musical groups sharing their tunes from this ugly edifice? What about its annual Halloween scary bizarre decorations? Regrettably, that bit of community folklore is now gone forever; our endearing outbuilding is gone. This is not a cry for historic preservation or an endeavor to protest a demolished structure; it is simply a sentimental or wistful remembrance of a cheap, colorless structure that has served the community of Carpinteria well. Let’s hope fellow Carpinterians will equally share happy memories of this grubby old outbuilding.

Dial up a declawing resolution
City Manager Dave Durflinger has stated that “the City is not in a position to commit the staff resources necessary to conduct the research and analysis necessary for the City Council to decide on a formal position” regarding cat declawing. Cat declawing is a surgical procedure (a form of mutilation) in which the animal’s toes are amputated at the last joint. Exactly how many staffer hours are necessary to “conduct research and analysis” before city council members can decide if they condone or condemn this inhumane treatment? The city has already been provided with copies of the resolutions condemning declawing passed in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkeley, Santa Monica, Culver City, West Hollywood , Beverly Hills and Burbank—at no cost. If the shortage of staff resources is the reason for inaction, how cost effective is it for the city manager, city council members and multiple staffers to continue to spend their time (as they have, hour after hour after hour, for the past five months) answering residents’ phone requests to pass a resolution condemning this practice? Will council members “commit the staff resources necessary” to decide their position on this issue or will they continue to do nothing and knowingly persist in wasting staff resources needed to answer hundreds of incoming calls against declawing in the weeks and months ahead? With petition signatures and council meeting testimony easy for city officials to ignore, phone calls have to be answered. Take one minute of your time to make a call, 684-5404 x400 or 403 or 450. Relay the message, “Please pass a resolution condemning cat declawing.” If you’ve already phoned, please phone again! Carpinteria prides itself on promoting animal welfare. Because the majority of residents love animals, the calls will continue.

I love this town. Carpinteria is magical—amazing people, stunning mountains, glorious beaches and cute local businesses. There is no such thing as a “quick trip to the grocery store” with so many friends to chat up once you’re there! Our small, familiar population gives me comfort and feels safe for me and my kids. I’ll tell you the one way our town with a self-limiting population does not make me feel safe and comfortable: running a small business. My income and survival in Carp are dependent on each and every one of you shopping consistently in my store. I’m not the only one of course. All the independently owned businesses that make up our quaint shopping areas are dependent on you too. The visitors are a great summer boost, but for long-term success, we need our own local people shopping year round. The Institute for Local Self-Reliance reports that local retailers return an average of 52 percent of their revenue to the local economy, compared with just 14 percent for the chain retailers. And that “choosing a locally owned store generates almost four times as much economic benefit for the surrounding region as shopping at a chain.” Why make the extra trip into a local store to purchase “xyz” if Big Box has it and you’re already there? In an average American city, “If people were to shift 10 percent of their spending from chains to local businesses, it would bring an additional $235 million per year to the community’s economy.” $235 million! 10 percent! A 10 percent spending shift is nothing! How many lattes is that? I have spent the last 19 months desperately trying to save my toy store. Kiona Gross’ Curious Cup bookstore moving in is a huge improvement, but it may not be enough. Kiona and I are both in the same last-gasp stage of life with our businesses. We need your 10 percent. Big Box won’t notice you. We will. We, however, will be a thing of the past if your best show of support is to come into our store, tell us how thrilled you are that there is a toy store and bookstore in Carp then leave without buying anything. To Kiona and I, that is a knife to our hearts and a nail in our coffins. Sound dramatic? It is. One hundred dollars a day is enough

City closes first quarter with fiscal house in order
living mindfully DAVE MOCHEL
By Erin LEnnon
Put fear in its place
Ghosts, ghouls and goblins will soon be wandering the streets—creepy, scary and horrifying—and all in name of good Halloween fun. However, in our daily lives fear can prevent us from taking steps that will lead to accomplishment and healthy growth. Fear can keep us from expressing ourselves fully, and fear can make the world feel like a small place full of limitations and insurmountable challenges. What exactly is fear? The sensations we associate with fear result from physiological changes such as increases in heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure. These changes are triggered by the hormone epinephrine, more commonly known as adrenaline. The purpose of these changes is to activate the body to deal with a threat. In the case of extreme fear, the contents of the digestive tract and bladder may be even emptied to lighten the load for rapid escape. Interestingly, there is very little physiological difference between fear and excitement. A rollercoaster may be exciting to one person and terrifying to another, but the bodily response of both people will be very similar. The real distinction between the two is in how the sensations are interpreted—the thoughts that accompany the sensations shape the experience. Wouldn’t it be great to be fearless? Before you answer that, consider the case of a woman known as SM. Born with a congenital disorder that destroyed her amygdalae, the brain structures responsible for generating fear, SM laughs her way through notoriously scary haunted houses. When taken by researchers to an exotic pet store, she eagerly reached out to pick up tarantulas and venomous snakes even though she understood that they are potentially dangerous. Because of her inability to gauge threat, SM has found herself in several harrowing situations,
including being held up at knifepoint and gunpoint. In addition to being unable to recognize fear on other people’s faces, SM says inappropriate things in social situations, and is willing to stand well within the “personal space” of strangers. The case of SM points out how fear can help us detect potential threats in our environment and serve as a useful tool for assessing social cues. While fear certainly has an important role in survival, it can also condition us to avoid situations that may be perfectly safe. In fact, how we respond to fear can have a dramatic impact on the quality of our health, relationships and performance. How can we respond skillfully when fear shows up so that it does not control our lives? It all begins with attention. Closely observing the experience of fear allows us to see that it is made up of sensations and thoughts that have no material substance of their own. The next step is acceptance. Taking a deep breath, gently smiling at the sensations and standing or sitting up tall with shoulders spread and dropped allows you to accept the presence of fear. Fear is not a physical obstacle; it does not need to go away in order for you to take calm, confident action. When you respond to fear with awareness and acceptance, then you will begin to see possibilities that did not seem to exist before. With some practice, you will be able to act deliberately in the face of the fear that used to stop you. Even strong phobias can be overcome with a mindful approach. And what better time of year than Halloween to begin to practice? Dave Mochel has taught classes in neuroscience, wellbeing and leadership for 25 years. He works with individuals, schools and businesses to help them focus their attention and energy to enhance performance, reduce stress and maximize quality of life.

The Carpinteria City Council waded into city finances and local waterway issues when members received two reports addressing trends in both local creeks and coffers at the council’s Oct. 28 meeting. Administrative Services Director John Thornberry reported an anticipated annual upswing in property taxes, sales tax and transient occupancy tax (TOT), which led him to conclude, “Yes, we’re doing better than last year.” The city reviews its finances on a quarterly basis, and the first quarter outcomes are early indicators in the yearlong tug of war between revenues and expenses. Three months into the current fiscal year, the city’s general fund shows a $328,473 deficit, but that will change when property taxes roll in from December through May. Thornberry expects property taxes to exceed the previous year’s by 3 percent. As the city’s largest single revenue source, that rise set a positive tone for the rest of Thornberry’s presentation. Sales taxes are slated to reach $1.8 million, a 7 percent increase over last year. Revenue from transient occupancy taxes should outstrip last year’s receipts by 15 percent. Carpinteria’s visitors contributed $544,000 between July and September in TOT. This is seasonal revenue, with first quarter numbers making up roughly 35 percent of the year’s TOT revenue. Along with those key increases are some declines. The city’s investments are expected to bring in about $97,000 this year, a decline from last year due to lower interest rates. And income from city fees and charges are running behind last year by 33 percent, due to less construction. These early financial results may not be definitive, but they give the city a peek at the health of the general fund, which foots the bill for most of the city’s basic services, and assists with future budgeting by highlighting trends and anomalies. “Of course when we’re preparing the

More residents get involved in creek health
During a review of the city’s Bob Hansen Creeks Preservation Program, the city council learned that the health of local creeks has become a greater priority for residents. Volunteers rid Carpinteria beaches and creeks of 140 pounds of trash during Santa Barbara County’s September Creek Week. “This year in Carpinteria we actually had our largest turnout for all of our events that we’ve had in the four years that I’ve been here,” said Environmental Coordinator Erin Maker. “That’s excellent. It means people are getting more involved and are becoming more aware of our Creek Week events.” The creeks preservation program is a citywide mission to restore and protect Carpinteria, Franklin, Lagunitas and Santa Monica creeks as they flow through the valley. Creek preservation requires city staff to get out in the community, whether it be monitoring and adapting city regulations to instill green practices, getting locals out into the creeks to help with restoration or reviewing development proposals and maintenance operations, from initial plans through to the final nail. Public works is drafting a proposal to add new stormwater management practices to the municipal code, and the city also joined the county and area agencies to develop a post-construction technical manual to keep creeks clean after development projects are complete. City staff also reached out to business owners through the Business Education Program, which teaches businesses about eliminating illicit discharges into the creeks, best management practices and water quality issues. The city made 15 contacts this year with local businesses to deal with creek-related code compliance issues. Beyond pamphlets and regulations, Carpinterians also got their hands dirty pulling weeds and picking up trash. The city logged over 300 service hours last year through educational programs, habitat restoration and trash-pickup events hosted by staff. The next regular Carpinteria City Council meeting will be held on Monday, Nov. 12, at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers, 5775 Carpinteria Ave.

Nov. 1 marks ofﬁcial Franklin Trail opening CVN REPORT
Carpinteria’s resume of outdoor activities will ﬁnally grow to include hiking when the grand opening of the Franklin Trail takes place on Friday, Nov. 1. The long-awaited opening arrives after years of fundraising, design, construction and more fundraising. “The Franklin Trail is like the ‘Little Engine That Could,’” stated First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal. “After nearly 40 years of countless obstacles, the community ﬁnally has achieved its vision of reopening the trail and providing public access to the scenic foothills of the Carpinteria Valley.” Franklin Trail supporters will gather on Nov. 1 at 3:30 p.m. to celebrate the ofﬁcial opening at the trailhead, located at the end of Sterling Avenue and Meadow View Lane, at the north end of Carpinteria’s Franklin Park. Members of the public are invited to attend. The 2.25-mile trail that opens Friday is the ﬁrst of three phases intended to ultimately connect hikers, bikers and equestrians with East Camino Cielo and the existing back country trail system along the Santa Ynez River. The trail will be closed to horses and bikes until January 2014 to allow for rainfall and foot trafﬁc to compact its loose soil The second phase of the project, which will span ﬁve miles of Rancho Monte Alegre and U.S. Forest Service property to the peak of the Santa Ynez Mountains, is expected to be open in late 2014 or 2015 after needed landowner and regulatory approvals are secured and more money is raised to restore the historic trail route. The ﬁrst phase, which was initially slated to open over a year ago, cost several hundred thousand dollars more than anticipated. According to Friends of Franklin Trail, the trail’s total price tag amounted to over $530,000. Costly components of the ﬁrst phase included installation of a 65-foot pedestrian bridge across a tributary of Franklin Creek, several retaining walls, fencing and electric gates to provide security where the trail runs along the Carpinteria High School campus and through a private avocado orchard. An informational kiosk and native landscaping to beautify the trail entrance were also installed on the campus. More than 360 people and foundations made charitable gifts for the trail, and $322,000 in grants were secured by the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County from Caltrans Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program and Santa Barbara County. The City of Carpinteria also partnered in the project by enhancing the existing portion of the trail through

A man turned a bike into the sheriff’s station on Oct. 19 because he had accidentally commandeered it. The night before the man had ridden to a Carpinteria Avenue bar on a borrowed red mountain bike. He then left the unlocked bike outside and entered to get his drink on. When he departed, he saddled up on a red mountain bike. However, in the morning, the owner of the borrowed bike said the returned bike was the wrong one. Deputies took possession of the bicycle.
Hopped up man immune to taser
Deputies had trouble wrangling a man accused of being hopped up on drugs on Oct. 18 on Cramer Road. At first, one deputy arrived to confront the man who had reportedly flipped and was brandishing a 26-inch metal rod in a driveway. At gunpoint, the officer told him to drop it, and the man complied. However, the fidgety man, 30, continued to motion to his belt area, a movement the deputy warned him could result in bullets flying. The man uttered several bizarre, paranoid statements to the deputy about needing help. A second officer then arrived, and the lawmen attempted to cuff the live wire. He slipped their hold and attempted to stand from his belly-down position. At first the deputies tried to subdue the man with fists and knees, but he continued to put up a fight. He then withstood a 17-second surge from a taser. He reportedly yelled that he was in pain but kept wrestling the officers. The deputy then ditched the taser and eventually ended the two-minute skirmish by slipping the man into restraints. The witnesses, who apparently had called for help, refused to identify themselves or state that they had felt threatened by the man’s behavior. Deputies arrested him for being under the influence of drugs. Deputies noted they believed the man was under the influence of drugs
due to “unusual strength, immunity to pain, rapid speech, paranoid statements and extreme perspiration.” He was medically cleared of minor injuries sustained during the scuffle before booking.
Auto erratic intoxication
A man accused of attempting to hit several people at a party with his car was aggressively detained by civilians before deputies arrived and eventually tased and arrested him for driving under the influence on Oct. 19. When deputies rolled up at the Walnut Avenue party, they found the man’s car half on the lawn and half on the driveway and surrounded by a mob of birthday party attendees at around 8:45 p.m. The man, 29, had been pulled from the vehicle and bloodied by his detainers, but when he spotted the officer he slipped free and fled by foot. A deputy pursued him on a yard-hopping chase before cornering the man and tasing him in order to ensure that he would stop running and disobeying the officer. Witnesses reported that the man had been sitting in a car across the street from the party when he engaged in a verbal altercation with a female. He then accelerated toward the party, hopped a curb and nearly struck two men. The witness, who wasn’t at the party, said he had no doubt the driver intended to use his car as a weapon. The men who were almost struck felt the same way. The driver’s keys were quickly removed from the vehicle before party attendees yanked him out and bloodied his face. By the time the deputy returned to the scene with the suspect, most partygoers had dispersed. Those who remained were unwilling to converse with deputies. Interviewing the driver, the deputy suspected he was intoxicated, and the suspicion was bolstered by a .19 breath test. The driver was remorseful but chose not to talk with deputies about what had transpired or his motivation for nearly hitting people with his car.

Hard-knock scrambles on mini Carp crime spree
A woman suspected of being involved in a hit and run on Highway 101 at Reynolds Avenue on Oct. 18 reportedly followed up the alleged felony with a Carpinteria Avenue robbery all while possessing and attempting to conceal drugs at the sheriff’s station. The woman, a 26-year-old from Santa Paula, apparently scrambled from the auto accident but had no means to contact anybody to help her get away. She allegedly confronted a woman sitting on a nearby bus bench. She asked the woman, 18, if she had the time, and the unsuspecting woman pulled out her cell phone to check. The suspect then allegedly shoved the woman, swiped the phone and ran across the street. The victim tried to keep the suspect in sight, but the suspect fled into a trailer park. A passerby noticed the distraught victim and dialed 9-1-1. The suspect re-emerged on Carpinteria Avenue and crossed paths again with the victim and her newfound helper. The suspect cavalierly stated that she’d tossed the phone in a ditch and continued on her way. After arriving, deputies tracked down the suspect, apprehending her at gunpoint, and the phone, which had been deposited in the bed of a truck. Deputies found that several phone calls had been dialed to two numbers while the suspect possessed the phone. Deputies then ushered the suspect to a holding cell at the Carpinteria station. In the cell, the woman allegedly slipped her handcuffs to the front of her body and attempted to conceal syringes within the grate over a drainage pipe. Deputies found the syringes along with marijuana the woman possessed. She was transported to jail.

Carpinteria’s hardest working band, The Rincons, performs at this year’s California Avocado Festival.
AvoFest notes music beat MARK BRICKLEY “Wow, what a weekend!” those words underscore the tireless effort that made october’s avocado festival a resounding success. Operations Director Mike lazaro was in constant motion. his right hand was City Councilman gregg Carty. other festival board members leo fortunato, anthony Staal, gary dobbins, Jeff Moorhouse and Emily Miles all lent their time and talent. also hats off to Executive Assistant Debra McCarty and the outstanding volunteers who staffed the kids zone and merchandise booths. the music never stopped on the festival’s four stages. this year’s highlights included an inspired set by Santa Barbara musical legend Spencer the gardener. his band has been re-imagined with the addition of extraordinary drummer Cougar Estrada, the former percussionist for East la legends los lobos. Estrada’s beats made Spencer’s originals spring off the stage. festival favorites the rincons and dusty Jugz bands transported fans from the beach to the backwoods with their rocking musical mix. on friday night 14-year-old vocalist Brandi Rose sang with fire and frenzy far beyond her age. look for big things to come from this poised young singer.
a multi-track Cd is attached to each copy of monthly uk music publication Mojo Magazine. the stories behind the album’s tracks are detailed inside the magazine. recent offerings included the rolling Stones uncovered with early blues artists like Muddy Waters and howlin Wolf playing songs the Stones covered. Mojo also presented a CD of Johnny Cash roots cuts and covered the Beatles second album. the British music periodical is packed with non-hype articles about contemporary acts from Questlove to daft Punk and offers retrospective stories about classic rock’s greatest bands. the rag’s rare color photos are remarkable, and its album reviews include artists who don’t make the cover of Rolling Stone. you can find Mojo Magazine at the front Page in Montecito and Barnes and Noble in Ventura. it’s worth the $9.99 price tag.
Sometimes music arrives ahead of its time. Maybe that’s the nature of art. The debut performance of russian composer igor Stravinsky’s “the rite of Spring” caused his audience to riot. he stretched
the edges of classical composition, changing its rhythmic structure. Stravinsky led his audience on a wild ride. “the rite of Spring” was originally written as a ballet and premiered in Paris at the Ballets Russes on May 29, 1913. The score starts slowly, and its first minute is vaguely melodic. then the music shifts and becomes dissonant and disturbing. the chaos doesn’t let up until its final note. the opening night audience had never experienced such musical disorder. they went on a rampage and began screaming and yelling at each other as the ballet dancers struggled to keep up with composition’s pace. Stravinsky quickly left the concert hall though the back door. a year later “the rite of Spring” was performed in london without the staged ballet. uk newspapers had previewed the composition. at its second performance the audience sat calmly and experienced the music’s rich, complex structure. as the piece concluded they erupted in applause, and Stravinsky received a standing ovation. he was literally carried out of the auditorium on admirers’ shoulders. twenty-seven years later sections of the “rite” were used in Walt disney’s soundtrack for the movie “fantasia.” Stravinsky and wife Vera lived in Santa Barbara in 1943. “the rite of Spring” is considered the composer ’s masterwork. the los angeles Philharmonic performed it at the hollywood Bowl last summer. it will not be presented locally this season but Stravinsky fans can hear his “Suite #1 for Small Orchestra” on Jan. 21, 2014 played by the Santa Barbara Chamber orchestra.

Music Trivia Quiz Q: Who sang and composed the 1960 single “yellow Polka dot Bikini”? A: Pop artist Brian hyland sang the hit song. Pianist lee Pockriss wrote the music, and songwriter Paul Vance penned the lyrics in 25 minutes on his way home from the beach. Vance said the song was inspired by watching his 2-year-old daughter wearing a bikini for the first time. the wide-eyed reaction of two young boys sent her scurrying back into the locker room. the tiny two-piece bathing suits were just beginning to catch on. remember the song’s lyrics? “She was afraid to come out of the locker, she was as nervous as she could be. She was afraid to come out of the water, afraid that someone would see. it was an itsy Bitsy teenie Weenie yellow Polka dot Bikini…” The song became a #1 Top Forty Hit and remained on the charts for 13 weeks. it gained worldwide fame after being translated into languages including Japanese, hebrew and Swahili.

Questions about Freemasonry?

school notes Redhawks recognize Red Ribbon Week
Sixth- through eighth-graders at Carpinteria Middle School spent a week learning the grave dangers associated with drug and alcohol abuse during Red Ribbon Week between Oct. 21 and 25. Students signed a pledge banner, wore crazy clothes and searched high and low for a hidden red ribbon. The Red Ribbon has signiﬁed drug awareness since the slaying of Drug Enforcement Agency agent Enrique Camarena by drug trafﬁckers in 1985. First Lady Nancy Reagan supported Congress’s declaration of the ﬁrst Red Ribbon campaign in 1988.

Ghosts, ghouls, goblins and gardens garden gossip CHRIS & LISA CULLEN What do monsters and meandering spirits have to do with gardening? Probably nothing, but it is kind of fun to delve into the history of our customs, and Halloween’s history is ancient. Many cultures from the ancient Persians and Egyptians to the Aztecs and Chinese have had festivals in which they honored the memory of their deceased family and ancestors.
A history of trick or treating
In the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, the last night of the year was Oct. 31. On this day it was thought that the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the year would come back in search of living bodies to possess. The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowing the spirit world to intermingle with the living. Naturally, the still-living did not want to be possessed, so on the night of Oct. 31, villagers would extinguish the fires in their homes to make them cold and undesirable. They would then dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes and noisily parade around the neighborhood, being as destructive as possible in order to frighten away the spirits looking for bodies to possess.
Marigold: the Flower of the Dead
Marigold is the traditional flower for Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, which is celebrated all over Mexico from Oct.
ACCIDENT: CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
by paramedics and transported by ambulance to Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara. By Monday, Esqueda’s condition had improved, and he was transferred out of the ICU. Details remained murky around the circumstances of the accident as of Oct. 28. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Major Accident Response Team was still investigating and released few specifics. A Toyota Highlander occupied by three people struck Esqueda’s car, according to the sheriff’s department, and all three occupants of the Highlander had left the scene before the arrival of officers. Two were found a block away on linden Avenue and were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The third person was wanted for questioning, and it is still unclear who was driving, according to Kelly Hoover, sheriff’s department spokesperson. Rampton commented that it was likely the Highlander had been traveling north at a high rate of speed on linden Avenue when it broadsided Esqueda’s vehicle, but a final determination as to the positioning and speed of the vehicles will have to be made by sheriff’s department investigators reconstructing the accident. No charges have been filed. Warrior football coach Ben Hallock commented that Esqueda’s move from the ICU was encouraging. “The kids have had a very positive attitude. Everyone is just really glad he’s alive,” said Hallock.
31 to Nov. 2. They are used to decorate tombs and were a part of this tradition going all the way back to the Aztecs. In fact, the Aztec name for marigold means “flower of 400 lives.” Marigold was also known as Russian Penicillin due to its effectiveness in fighting infections; doctors of the Civil War and World War I used it extensively to save lives on the battlefields. According to folklore, if you put the marigold flower petals under your mattress it will induce prophetic dreams and is said to have the power to make dreams come true. It was also used as a protective and was incorporated into wreaths to keep a home safe. Marigold is also thought to strip a witch of her will, so you may want to have some in your garden this Halloween weekend.
Top 10 ways to stay safe this Halloween
1. Definitely put out a carved pumpkin with a candle inside. This will help to scare off any wandering sprits. (Disembodied spirits apparently scare easily and have diminished powers of observation.) 2. Eat lots of garlic: It is well known that vampires have a dislike for garlic. Even in China and Malaysia, garlic has been used as vampire repellent. You can also string it up over your doorway to prevent vampires from entering. 3. Carry a bag of poppy seeds: Vampires are compulsive counters. If you suspect someone of being a vampire, throw poppy seeds (or a poppy seed bagel) at them and they will be distracted long enough for you to get away. 4. Another way to repel vampires is the thorns of wild roses. Not sure why this works, it just does. 5. Make sure you have a bunch of wolfs bane with you to repel the werewolves. I haven’t found any other form of protec-
CHS cleared counselors’ schedules on Oct. 28 so they would be available to help students cope with their grief. Hallock said Esqueda’s teammates have taken the moment to reflect on their commitment to supporting each
tion from these creatures. 6. Wear a cross. This seems to help with all sorts of evil, from vampires to witches. 7. A string of chili peppers around your neck and at the entrance to your house will repel monsters and ghouls. 8. Fennel is another plant useful for protection. Hang fennel over your front door to prevent the entry of witches. 9. Now if for some reason you do get a hex put on you, use bay to break the spell. So keep some around, just in case.
10. Lavender and oak will protect you from the evil eye. Until next time, fill your garden with joy!

Warrior wide receiver Ruben Garcia is met by a host of Nordhoff Ranger defenders who stifled the Carpinteria offense en route to a 28-0 shutout.
Warriors shut out 28-0 by Rangers CHS left looking for TVL answers By ALonzo orozCo
After ending the non-league season 6-0, Carpinteria high School football is quickly finding the competitive TriValley league (tVl) to be a lot tougher. For the second time in three weeks, the Warriors’ offense was shut down by a Tri-Valley League foe, this time the Nordhoff Rangers who pitched a shutout in their 28-0 win over Carpinteria in Ojai on Oct. 25. The second consecutive league loss against CIF-SS Northwest Division titans Bishop Diego and Nordhoff leaves the Warriors at 0-2 in the TVL, while Nordhoff improved to 1-1. Starting from their own 20, it looked as though the Rangers’ game plan was to control the ball on the ground. Primarily feeding the ball to running back tayler Livingston, Nordhoff worked its way down to the Warrior 2-yard line. A holding call on the Rangers and two pass interference calls by Carpinteria in the end zone delayed the drive, but in the end, it was wide receiver Brandon Wadsworth
running the ball in from 3 yards out to give the home team a 7-0 lead with just 3:57 left in the quarter. “They (Nordhoff) did a great job of keeping hold of the ball; obviously, penalties in that drive had a big part of it,” said Carpinteria coach Ben hallock. The Rangers amassed 174 rushing yards to just 54 for the Warriors, who came up empty on three trips to the red zone. Peter Ramos led the team with 39-yards rushing on seven carries. in the second quarter, Carpinteria invaded Ranger territory when running back Jonathan Esqueda picked up a first down at the Nordhoff 40. But, the drive was quickly thwarted as Warrior quarterback Ian Craddock’s pass down field was intercepted by defensive back Nick Sterling, one of two interceptions for Sterling on the night. Craddock

Coast Union outruns Cate 8-man, 55-34
rams remain on course for league championship against Thacher on nov. 2 By ALonzo orozCo
During Parents Weekend, Cate School families witnessed a midafternoon fireworks show put on by the home team Rams and Coast Union football squads up on the Mesa on oct. 26. The visiting Broncos provided most of the spark as they outscored Cate in a non-league match-up, 55-34. However, Ram coach Ben Soto seemed less than thrilled by the display. “They ran the ball down our throats, and we made stupid mistakes: a fumble, an interception, a block in the back when there was a touchdown,” said Soto whose team dropped to 5-3 overall, but remains 3-0 in Condor league play. The Rams got off to their usual good start, forcing Coast Union to punt on the game’s opening possession and scoring a touchdown on their first drive. It came in the form of the pass, as quarterback Michael Nettesheim tossed a 22-yarder to tight end Keller Mochel for a 6-0 lead. But the Broncos responded quickly, reaching the Ram 7-yard line when quarterback Angel Avina hooked up with wide receiver Emmany Godinez. tailback lane Sutherland capped the drive with a 3-yard run to give Coast Union a 7-6 edge. Forcing the Rams to turn the ball over on downs, the Broncos wasted little time adding to the lead. This time, via the air, Avina hit wide receiver Quinten Rathke on a 12-yard scoring pass to put Coast Union up 14-6. Utilizing sophomore running back isaiah washington for both his running and receiving skills, Cate drove down to the 1-yard line. Facing a fourth and
goal, the Rams called on senior running back Max Vasquez to carry it across the goal line to tie the score in the second quarter at 14. But the combination of strong line play and precision passing helped the Broncos regain the lead. Sutherland ran in his second of the game to put Coast Union back on top, 21-14. The Rams countered with another Vasquez touchdown run, this time from 28 yards out. Then when kicker Oliver Welch hauled in a bad snap on the point after and brought it across the goal line for a two-point conversion, Cate regained the lead at 22-21. The Broncos answered on another touchdown bomb to Godinez and another scoring strike to Rathke to break open the game, making it 34-22. Then Nettesheim found Vasquez the elder behind the secondary on the final play of the half. the 62-yard pass play helped narrow the margin to 34-28. After yet another touchdown run by Sutherland early in the third quarter put the score at 41-28, the defenses began to settle down. Early in the fourth, Nettesheim found tight end Abraham Tall in the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown catch to make it 41-34. However, Rathke brought down two more touchdown passes, and with a Cate touchdown being negated for a block in the back, the lead grew to 55-34. When Nettesheim’s final desperation heave was intercepted with under a minute to play, Coast Union prevailed. On Saturday, Nov. 2, Cate hosts rival Thacher at 3 p.m. with the Condor league title on the line.

Warrior racquets ring in third league championship
Warrior girls tennis captured an unprecedented third straight Frontier League championship on Oct. 24 by downing second-place Nordhoff High School, 15-3, at Carpinteria High School. A slow start for the Warriors resulted in a rare loss for doubles tandem Lesly Zapata/Natalie Saito, 6-4, but the Warrior top duo was able to battle back in the set from a 5-1 deﬁcit before winning their next two sets 6-0. Makenna Pike/Emily Saito pulled off a 7-5 comeback win in their ﬁrst set and ﬁnished 1-1. The Warriors’ number three doubles squad of Merrisa Souza/Gabi Montes De Oca went toe to toe with Nordhoff’s top squad, one of the league’s best, in an inspiring match. “This is the type of set I have been waiting for, just knowing what they are capable of, and although it was the last set of the day, it really gave our team an inspirational boost,” commented coach Charles Bryant. The singles lineup, Kelsie Bryant, Odessa Stork and Kassandra Ni, did its thing, and swept all nine sets. “The team has worked hard all season, and I am very proud of all their efforts,” Bryant said. The top-ranked Warriors ﬁnished Frontier League play undefeated at 10-0, and seventh-ranked Nordhoff was 8-2.

Carpinteria High School
Warrior football postseason hopes hinge on SP game
When the Warriors take the ﬁeld at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium for the homecoming game on Friday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. against Santa Paula High School, the team’s playoff life will be on the line. After opening Tri-Valley League 0-2, the Warriors can still contend for an at-large CIF playoff invitation but must win this week. Though the Warriors are 6-2 and have been ranked in the Northwest Division top 10 all season and are currently seventh, only two TVL teams are guaranteed playoff spots and the Warriors have already been eliminated from contention for those. Nordhoff High School and Bishop Diego High School sat at the top of division polling all year, but Oak Park High School has defeated them both to swoop into the number one ranking and ﬁrst place in TVL. Coach Ben Hallock said ﬁnishing drives in which the Warriors get into the red zone will be key after an anemic two weeks of offense, over which the once high-scoring Warriors have only managed six points and have had trouble turning opportunities into scores. As for Santa Paula, Hallock said, “They’re having one of their best seasons ever,” which seems to be the case for each TVL squad. In place of running back/ linebacker Jonathan Esqueda, who was seriously injured in a car accident on Oct. 26, Warriors Tim Jimenez, Nathan Smolnikar and Bryson Frazer will likely see more carries. Hallock said, “If we don’t win this week, we don’t stand a chance.” The Warriors play Oak Park the following week in another must win to close out the schedule. “We could beat Oak Park and Santa Paula and still not make playoffs,” he commented.

Boys water polo
Oct. 23 – Warrior boys water polo lost to Malibu High School, 17-6, in another demonstration that Tri-Valley League is a battle for third place for everyone other than Malibu and Oaks Christian high schools. For the Warriors, Noah Reed scored three goals, Thomas Fly had two and Malik Mehai had one. After one quarter, the Warriors trailed 7-1, prompting Warrior coach Bryan Swarm to call it “a dreadful start.” He concluded, “We were outgunned, but we fought hard for the rest of the game and gave it our all, and that is all we can ask of our players when facing such a dominating team in league play.” Oct. 25 – Warrior boys water polo held on to edge Nordhoff High School, 12-11, in a home Tri-Valley League match. Led by Thomas Fly’s four goals, the Warriors charged out to a 5-0 ﬁrst quarter but allowed Nordhoff to get back to 7-5 by half time. A couple of Zeke Hart’s 14 saves were timely in the fourth quarter to help the Warriors preserve the victory. Noah Reed scored three goals; Forrest Van Stein had two and Chris Fedderson and Malik Mehai had one apiece. “With a young team, we were up and down today, just like our season, but we are learning how to win close games and that experience will bode well for our future,” commented coach Bryan Swarm. The Warriors improved to 7-13 overall and 2-5 in TVL.
Oct. 22 – Warrior girls tennis used a shufﬂed line up to defeat Santa Clara High School, 15-3, in Oxnard. Usual doubles players, Gabi Montes De Oca, Lesly Zapata and Natalie Saito, all shifted to singles and swept their nine sets, all by 6-0 margins. In doubles, Alondra Costilla/Emily Saito and Kathryn Blair/Madison Cleek also swept.
WARRIORS: Continued from page 17
would end up completing 13-of-18 attempts for 116 yards in the game. The senior quarterback was held to 5-yards rushing. Starting from their own 16, the Rangers methodically worked their way down ﬁeld with Livingston once again doing the bulk of the work on the ground. His 5-yard burst up the middle gave Nordhoff a 14-0 lead just before intermission. Craddock’s attempt to kick a long ﬁeld was blocked on the ﬁnal play, helping Nordhoff to maintain its two-touchdown lead going into the second half. Carpinteria’s offensive line began to take charge in the third quarter as the Warriors moved the ball to the Ranger 14, but when Craddock’s 37-yard ﬁeld goal attempt sailed wide right, Carpinteria once again came away empty handed. A few plays later, Nordhoff quarterback Tanner Workman connected with wide receiver Jake Boyd on a deep post pattern down to the Warrior 25. Livingston ﬁnished the drive with a 7-yard touchdown run, making it 21-0 Rangers. Livingston scored his third touchdown on a short run at the beginning of the fourth quarter to make it 28-0. He ﬁnished with 160 yards on 26 carries for the evening. The Warriors’ best opportunity to score came with just under seven minutes to play when they were stopped on fourth and goal after a strong Nordhoff line surge ended with Ramos with the ball on the 1-yard line. This Friday, the Warriors continue league play at home against Santa Paula. Kickoff for the homecoming game is at 7:30 p.m.

Whenever the amount of any administrative penalty and/or administrative cost imposed by the hearing officer pursuant to this chapter in connection with real property has not been satisfied in full within ninety days and/or has not been successfully challenged by a timely writ of mandate, this obligation may constitute a lien against the real property on which the violation occurred in accord with California Government Code Section 38773.1.

Tai chi/qigong expert to address Woman’s Club
Carpinterian Jessica Kolbe will present her methods to achieve optimal health of body, mind and spirit through tai chi and qigong at the next meeting of the Carpinteria Woman’s Club on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. at the clubhouse, 1059 Vallecito Road. Kolbe studied martial arts, dance and yoga, but it wasn’t until practicing Qigong that she understood how to activate the powerful self healing energy. She is now a level three certiﬁed tai chi and qigong instructor. Those who attend the Woman’s Club meeting can participate in Kolbe’s demonstration and should wear loose, comfy clothes if they wish to do so. The event is free of charge, and guests are encouraged to bring a bottle of wine or a dish to share. To ﬁnd out more, contact Marybeth Carty at 453-0461.
League to discuss campaign ﬁnance
Money in Politics will be the topic of discussion at the upcoming League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara community forum on Wednesday, Nov. 20, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Louise Lowry Davis Center, 1232 De La Vina St. UCSB Professor Ted Anagnoson will review key legislation and court decisions related to striking a fair balance between the ﬁrst amendment right to free speech and reasonable limits on campaign contributions and expenditures. The Citizens United case, which was decided in 2010, will be discussed, as will the McCutcheon case on “aggregate” limits on campaign contributions, which the Supreme Court heard last month. Trudy Schafer, senior director for Program of LWVC, will speak about the State League of Women Voters’ position on campaign ﬁnance. All League forums are free and open to the public. Guests may bring their own brown-bag lunch, and cookies and beverages will be provided. Parking at the center is free.
The Rotary Club of Carpinteria celebrated Vocational Service Month by honoring Tara O’Reilly of the Carpinteria Library and Sandy Weil of Carpinteria Women for Agriculture. The two well-known local leaders were celebrated at a luncheon meeting on Oct. 24 by over 35 club members, visitors and guests. The two ladies were lauded by club members Paul Wright and Michele Van Wingerden for going beyond the call of duty in their jobs and giving back to the community over and over again. In addition, speaker and marine wildlife expert Captain David Bacon spoke about the bounty in local waters and encouraged all those present to get out there and take in some salty sea air.

Love birds eat and be merry in Las Vegas
Bob Gronek and wife Jan celebrated their second anniversary and Bob’s 73rd birthday with a trip to Las Vegas. To celebrate the marriage of their hearts, the couple satisfied their bellies. Bob commented that Ruth Chris Steakhouse played a close second to Texas de Brazil restaurant among the fine eateries they visited on the trip. The cuisine at Texas de Brazil was so good that Bob labeled it the best restaurant to which he’s ever been. The remainder of the details about the trip stayed in Vegas.

Babymooners bring the bump to Kauai
Expecting couple Sarah and Nick Henry spent 10 peaceful, pre-baby nights on Kauai in September. The babymoon was the final big trip for the pair that will become three in December. They did, however, have a third wheel in CVN, which popped out in Poipu, on the island’s south side, where they spent three days. The other seven were logged lounging by the pool with beer and virgin piña coladas on the north side in Hanalei Bay. Tropical scenery played a key role in the priming for parenthood on hiking treks on the Napali Coast and exploring Tunnels’ snorkeling and surfing.
Reverend trades pulpit for surfboard
Reverend Jarrett Johnson of Carpinteria Community Church traveled south of the border and beyond to Nicaragua for a guys week of surfing. He discovered that CVN tide charts don’t translate to Nicaraguan breaks but had no trouble finding good waves in the warm waters. He commented that gracious wives back home were owed a debt of gratitude for allowing the surfcation to fly.
