Fire board approves station location study
This week’s listings on the back page
Let the games begin
By Lea Boyd
Stuck in gridlock for the last several months, plans for Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District’s future may have inched forward at the Oct. 29 board of directors meeting, where four of five members supported a station location study with a $23,000 price tag. By hiring independent consultant Diamonte Public Sector Group, the district should soon have concrete answers to questions of where best to locate firefighting facilities given call volumes, response times, land use restrictions and anticipated future development within the district. Longtime boardmember Craig Price said he is certain that the analysis, which should be complete by late winter, will echo what the veteran board members have said all along, that the proposed locations for new fire stations in downtown Summerland and Carpinteria will best serve residents. Despite his confidence in the findings, Price said, he voted in favor of the analysis because passing a $10 million bond to fund the two stations will require a minimum of two-thirds voter support. “We should do everything we can to eliminate doubt,” he concluded. Doubts have been raised by newer board members Chris Johnson and Bill Taff, as well as CSFPD firefighters and community members. Endorsed by the local firefighters union in their bid for board seats, Johnson

Warrior girls tennis players Lesly Zapata, front, and Natalie Saito grip the hands of their first round opponents in a home CIF semifinals match against Arlington High School on Nov. 13. Zapata and Saito went on to win their first set in the match to help the Warriors forge ahead 4-2 after one round of play. CVN went to press before the second round of play began, when the match was still anyone’s game. A win for the Warriors would mean a third straight CiF Championship appearance. The defending CiF champion Warriors would play Hacienda Heights (Wilson) or Riverside Poly at the Claremont Club on Friday, Nov. 15 for the championship.

Purple Heart Trail comes to Carpinteria
Carpinteria’s section of Highway 101 now officially pays homage to United States veterans who have sacrificed life and limb to protect American freedoms. By resolution of the California State Senate, the stretch of highway running through Santa Barbara and Ventura counties has been incorporated into the National Purple Heart Trail, an addition that makes the trail contiguous from Monterey County to the Ventura/Los Angeles County Line, a distance of nearly 240 miles. On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, local veterans joined city, county and state officials to unveil the new sign that will be mounted on the side of the freeway to commemorate the newest link in the trail. Carpinteria City Councilman Gregg Carty said that the new signs will serve as a visual reminder of the important role military men and women have played in our nation’s history. He hopes that the signs will prompt 101 travelers to seek out more information about the trail and reflect on those who earned the Purple Heart medal in their military service. “While we may not all agree with some of the policies that have led us to war and the battlefield, we can and should all agree that we owe a debt of gratitude to our warriors who answered the call and put their nation ahead of themselves,” stated Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, who sponsored the senate resolution.

Local home cook ranks in world’s top-10 sandwich makers By Peter Dugré
L.J. Washington works as a nurse at Cottage hospital, yet it’s the great care she puts into her sophisticated recipes that has landed the home cook in the limelight. A local champion and national entrant into food-offs, Washington recently returned to Carpinteria from the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, where she ranked seventh in the sandwich category for her gourmet shrimp po’ boy and grilled cheese concocted with prosciutto, mint, berry and dates. Although she did not win the $300,000 grand prize on Nov. 10, Washington reveled in the experience of cooking in front of a live film crew—the championship will be turned into a reality television program—and out on Fremont street with 300 other competitors. “It was massive. It was incredible,” said Washington, who has cooked for as long as she can remember. About 50 people were invited into the competition in the sandwich division of the World Championships, and everybody had equipment and a station in the open air. Asked to create a signature dish in round one, Washington entered her shrimp po’ boy, a gourmet style augmentation of the sandwiches she grew up with in New orleans. Along with the standard fried shrimp, she added goat cheese remoulade, blue crab cole slaw, sautéed sweet onions and tomatoes. For authenticity, Washington sourced her shrimp from Louisiana. Then in round two, she matched grilled cheeses against the competition and gained favor with the judges with her fruity and minty twist. The field was reduced to 10, and although the competition included chefs, restaurant owners and food truck vendors, Washington gained entry into the next day of competition as the ninth-ranked competitor. The final 10 were judged on a sandwich that had to incorporate fish. Washington whipped up a Thai coconut red curry salmon sandwich that included sautéed garlic-basil portabellas and sweet potato
the Boyfriend Burger recipe
PrePareD By L.J. Washington for “the toDay shoW” 1 cup herb stuffing mix 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 3 tsp. garlic salt 2 tsp. marjoram 3 tsp. dried Italian seasoning 2 tsp. onion powder 2 tsp red pepper flakes. 2 tsp. olive oil 1/2 onion, chopped 1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley 1 cup diced celery 1/2 cup green onion, chopped 1/3 cup red wine 1 egg 1 lbs ground beef 1 lbs ground Italian sausage 1 lbs ground pork sausage
Local cook L.J. Washington sizzles up a red curry salmon sandwich at the World food Championships in Las Vegas on nov. 9. crisps. As part of the production that night, she was judged live on stage and heard both positive and negative critiques of her creation. Judges loved the curry but felt the mushrooms were an unnecessary addition. The top sandwich maker won $10,000 and advanced to a final round where the winner from each of seven categories vied for the $300,000 pot. The film coverage will air on A&e in the spring. “I got to be on a reality show and be part of the biggest event for competitive cooking that you can do,” Washington said of what she took away from the experience despite falling short of her
ultimate goal. her competitive run began in the spring of 2012 when she entered and won a sandwich showdown sponsored by uCsb Arts and Lectures, Whole Foods and The Santa Barbara Independent. She beat the owners of santa barbara restaurants Three pickles and savoy in the finals with her pork sloppy Joe to earn the crown of the best sandwich maker in the area. she then entered The Independent’s sizzlin’ summer barbecue competition and was a finalist, quite a feat considering she’d never grilled before. “I went on YouTube and started looking up ways to grill. I didn’t know how to do anything,” she said.
That exposure garnered her a spot on KeYT’s backyard barbecue summer series, a competition which the novice grill-woman won. “It was my first time on TV,” she said. she shot from local stardom to the national spotlight when she applied to be part of a Father’s day burger competition for NbC’s “The Today show.” she was sure to garner the attention of producers by naming her burger, “The boyfriend burger,” and guaranteeing that the recipe had the power to produce an engagement ring for any girlfriend who served it. “my phone rang and I looked at it and it said, ‘New York,’ and I thought, ‘I don’t know anyone from New York, it must be a bill collector,’” Washington said. It was the producers, and following a conversation with the affable applicant, producers invited her to New York for the show. she was one of three contestants, and ultimately lost to a Texan who made a larger, spicier burger in the burger-off featuring Celebrity Chef Giada de Laurentiis as a judge. Laurentiis took Washington aside and offered her words of encouragement following the narrow loss. Currently, Washington is happy to take a break. “I don’t even want to see a frying pan,” she said. “Wait a couple of months, then I’ll get the bug again.”

Santa Barbara film hits Carpinteria theater By Lea Boyd
When the curtains rise on “The Bet” at Plaza Playhouse Theater next Saturday, the audience will be witness to an experiment gone right. The movie, shot in Santa Barbara with a local cast and crew, pairs the feel-good volunteer power of community theater with professional filmmaking technology. It has the look and feel of a big budget production, but the faces onscreen are those you see in the grocery store and the final budget is miniscule on a Hollywood scale. Jack Presnal founded the Community Film Studio Santa Barbara, the nonprofit behind “The Bet,” in an effort to bring the community theater concept to moviemaking. He grew up in a town where theater productions involved “friends and neighbors getting together to put on shows for other friends and neighbors.” Recognizing that contemporary filmmaking could be done without costing a fortune, Presnal launched the organization and selected “The Bet” as the first film. Ticket holders to the Nov. 23 screenings in Carpinteria will watch Santa Barbara neighborhoods, beaches and buildings grace the screen from start to finish. And against these settings, a handful of Carpinterians make their feature film debut. Trina Emami, a local grad student and ESL teacher, plays the role of a policewoman with several lines in the romantic comedy, and Amy Orozco, editor of Carpinteria Magazine, plays the speaking role of a waitress in the film. “For me, it was fun first and foremost, but it was also serious and professional,” said Emami of the experience. “Everyone worked as a team … It felt like Santa Barbara. It felt like a family.” Orozco and Emami learned about the movie auditions at a meeting of the Plaza Playhouse improvisation group over a year ago. Neither had much acting experience but decided to give it a go. Orozco thought she’d made a “pretty good fool” of herself and Emami said that she “tanked” the audition. Both were delighted to happen into speaking roles. Finola Hughes, a Carpinterian with plenty of experience in front of the camera, including a longtime role in soap opera “General Hospital,” volunteered to take the director’s chair for the production. Working with locals to create a film for locals made it an “extraordinary experience,” she said. “The great feeling of making the film was something, I hope, that ends up on the film.” The expertise and leadership of Hughes, Presnal and other industry pros brought a high level of professionalism to the work. On the flip side, many members of the cast and crew were able to use the experience as a learning tool, Hughes emphasized; they reaped new skills while sowing their time and energy. Commenting on the professional-feel of the production, Orozco said that she received multiple color-coded rewrites of the script and was impressed with the presence of a wardrobe and makeup crew in addition to the camera and sound crews. Hollywood parlance abounded, Orozco said. “There was a ton of ‘Take two, The Bet, Scene Three, roll ’em, quiet on the set,’ that kind of thing,” she said. In the seven months since the film premiered at the Arlington Theater, “The Bet” has appeared in film festivals across the country. It recently won Best Feature at the L.A. Femme International Film Festival, which recognizes women for their film work. The Santa Barbara Film Festival is currently reviewing applicants, and Presnal hopes to hear that “The Bet” has been accepted to the local festival come December.

In her big screen debut, Carpinterian Trina Emami, as officer Ortega, approaches a car driven by “The Bet” star Scott Hagood. To officially qualify as a success, the film must generate enough income to balance the books. Actors and crewmembers gave their time to the effort, and most of the filming equipment was donated for use by Sony and AJA Video Systems. Nonetheless, location fees, meals and rentals cost about $30,000, and postproduction costs, such as editing, color correcting and sound mixing, required some skilled professionals and amounted to another $30,000. Presnal estimates that the film would have cost close to $500,000 in basic scale wages. The Plaza Playhouse screenings will help close the gap between revenue and costs for the Community Film Studio. Proceeds from the evening screening and reception will be split between the film studio and the theater, which is raising funds toward a new, large movie screen. A matinee screening will benefit the theater exclusively. Though the film studio is still fundraising to pay off “The Bet,” plans are brewing for the next project. Presnal described the next film as a Latino immigration drama in which children are left behind in the Santa Barbara area when their parents are deported. The subject matter chosen for the studio’s features will continue to represent the community, just as their casts and settings do.

Robert Donald Groves 3/7/1946 – 11/8/2013
Robert “Bob” Groves passed peacefully on Friday with family at his side at his home in Newark, Calif. after a brief battle with cancer. Bob was born and raised in Carpinteria, served in the Navy in Vietnam, worked on the cutting edge of computer programming in the 1970s and had the good fortune to retire early. Growing up by the beach, Bob had a lifelong love of the water and the outdoors and was an avid waterskier. He had a passion for cars and boats and spent much time working on both. Bob is survived by his two daughters, Jessica Groves of Annapolis, Md. and Jaime Jones of Angwin, Calif.; his granddaughters, Mazlyn and Eden Jones; and his brother, Tom Groves of Buellton. Bob was predeceased by his loving wife, Elaine Groves of Patterson, N.J.; his parents Don and Justine Groves; and his brother James Groves all of Carpinteria. Bob was happiest when surrounded by good music, good food, a loyal dog and close friends and family. Those good times are fondly remembered and sadly missed. Friends are asked to remember their favorite cancer charity or Save the Bay (San Francisco) in Bob’s memory.
Steve Kosztics Jr. 1/28/1923 – 10/21/2013
On Monday, Oct. 21, 2013, Steve Kosztics Jr. of Ventura, Calif. passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in La Conchita. Born in Turda, Hungary (now Romania) on Jan. 28, 1923, Steve and his family immigrated at Ellis Island, in 1927. His family settled in Portland, Ore., where he and his brother Louie attended the local schools. Shortly after graduating from high school, Steve enlisted in the U.S. Navy, at the age of 18. A year later, Steve and his brother both found themselves at war in the Pacific. Steve served proudly aboard the USS Neville, APA-9, which carried 24 landing craft. They made amphibious assaults at Tulagi, (Guadalcanal) Tarawa, Saipan and many others. He also served in the European Theater, at the invasion of Sicily. When the war ended, he married his sweetheart Jean Terry, on Nov. 18, 1945. They lived in Gardena for several years before eventually settling in Canoga Park, where they resided for about 30 years. Steve was employed by the Los Angeles Board of Education as a grading and paving inspector for approximately 40 years. In 1985 he retired to La Conchita, where he built their home, and has lived there for the past 28 years. He is survived by his wife, Jean Kosztics; his brother, Louie; and by his three daughters and their spouses: Ilona and Mike Hemperley, Lisa and Bill Taff, and Lorraine and Brian Thompson. He and Jean have seven grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. He was a loving and caring husband and father who always put his family first. His many talents and hobbies included woodworking, fishing, gardening and walking in La Conchita. Steve lived a full life and was a blessing in the lives of all who knew him. He is remembered by many as a loyal friend and an honorable and charitable man who was full of genuine love for all. He was the best of all of us. We will miss him greatly, but his legacy will live on eternally.
Garnet Hendrickson, 96, died peacefully in her sleep in Santa Barbara on Oct. 17. In 1957 Garnet, her husband, the late Cecil Hendrickson, and their daughter, Barbara, moved to Carpinteria. Reminiscing about living here, Garnet related, “Cecil took me to see a little restaurant he was interested in buying. It only had a counter and three stools. I said, ‘It’s such a tiny spot.’” Hence, the hamburger stand they opened in 1958 was, and still is, called The Spot. With Cecil’s outstanding hamburgers and Garnet’s delicious chili, The Spot became an immediate success. On Nov. 1 a memorial for Garnet was held in Carpinteria at Russ Salzgeber’s Butterfly Farm, followed by lunch at Delgado’s Mexican Restaurant.

Regarding recent county inspections at local agricultural operations prompted by complaints about exterior lighting: Agriculture has very special requirements in order to grow food, plants and flowers to accommodate you and millions of others. To demand the county, at considerable cost, inspect whole neighborhoods for possible violations is unnecessary and ridiculous. Whatever you have seen has been going on for years, so close your drapes, cover your eyes and don’t buy food, plants or flowers.

Affordable Care Act is unsustainable
I agree with Diana Thorn’s Nov. 7 letter “Obamacare dead on arrival.” However, I put the blame on the health insurance companies having written the bill for their own benefit and for our elected officials not daring to discuss an “improved Medicare for everyone” type of reform for fear of losing the multi millions of dollars in health insurance industry campaign contributions. Currently, 60 percent of healthcare is paid by government through Medicare, Medicaid and other programs. Under the Affordable Care Act an even higher percentage will be paid in expanded Medicaid and subsidies to the private insurance companies for lower- and middle-income people and tax credits for businesses. This does not count the private insurance plans bought with tax dollars for government employees. Too much of our private premium and tax dollars fund the insurance companies’ multimillion dollar CEO salaries, wasteful administrative costs, shareholder dividends and competitive marketing. An improved Medicare for everyone provides anyone needing healthcare the freedom to choose any private doctor anywhere. Now the insurance companies choose the doctors that charge them the least rather than allowing you to choose the one that best suits you. Single-payer is sustainable over time. It is financed and administered by not-forprofit managers who have the fiduciary responsibility to work in the patient’s and the medical profession’s best interest.

On Obamacare, Tea Party clouded by hatred
In response to “Obamacare dead on arrival,” Coastal View News, Nov. 7: People in America die every day because of the high cost of medical care. The Tea Party loves America just not the people in it who do not look, think or believe like they do. Their hatred of one lone, intelligent, articulate, charismatic black man has blinded them to reason and truth. They go to protests on buses paid for by the big money corporations that use their bias and fear to influence Republican politicians to block any legislation that helps the poor and middle-class by keeping laws that keep the money flowing to the very wealthy. Tea Party people say socialism and big government are evil, yet they enjoy the benefits of public roads, schools, parks, agencies that oversee our food, air, water, workplace safety, our Armed Forces, the Post Office, Social Security and Medicare, to name a few. Ironically, letter writer Diana Thorn cited the Heritage Foundation’s negative view of the Affordable Care Act they call “Obamacare” now, ignoring the fact that Heritage Foundation was the architect of the framework of this plan, which it formulated to combat universal coverage for all. President Obama’s agenda is a better country for all by ensuring everyone has a “fair shot at the American Dream.” Hate or healthcare?
Eva Vallejo Carpinteria
Obamacare needs nurture
In response to “Obamacare dead on arrival,” Coastal View News, Nov. 7: Once again Diana Thorn is baying out a warning on the impending disaster of the Affordable Care Act. We are warned of the imminent bankruptcy of the entire country, not to mention the dark forces of socialism lurking around every corner. The constant din of negativism is sapping the strength of our great nation. Imagine the power we could employ if we pulled together, if we rallied around the flag and said, “We will make this law work.” Together we could be constantly improving and refining it, strengthening weak areas and sharing concepts that work well, not dragging it down with false and misleading statements. What happened to American Exceptionalism?

City extends life of electric car charging station By ERin LEnnOn
The Carpinteria City Council pushed the city’s eco-conscious reputation up a notch on Nov. 12, opting to keep the city’s electric-car charging station and adding Carpinteria’s stretch of the California Coastal Trail to a statewide network of oceanfront hikes. Instead of pulling the plug on the city’s electric vehicle charging station in parking lot 3, at the Amtrak Station, the council followed staff’s recommendation to renew its contract with ChargePoint. The online network tracks station usage such as kilowatts of energy, greenhouse gas emissions and the total number of vehicles charged. ChargePoint also provides information to users that can help them locate other stations. “Anybody who has the application in their phone can look it up and map out their trips around Southern California,” said Environmental Coordinator Erin Maker. “There are many charging stations around, now that we’re part of this greater ChargePoint America grant program.” The city, along with a collection of Santa Barbara and Ventura agencies, received the $5,000 charging station at no cost under the ChargePoint America grant program, as well as a free network subscription that was scheduled to expire on Dec. 31. But now Carpinteria will pay $580 to extend its subscription for three years. Staff will also begin charging users for the electricity that drivers had been receiving for free since the station went up in July 2012. With a bit of debate, the council agreed on charging users $.30 per kilowatt-hour, which translates to between $.99 and $1.98 per hour. Carpinterians with a Nissan Leaf can expect to pay $7.20 for a full charge. Tesla Model S owners can expect to pay $18 for a full charge. Through all of this math, the city expects to generate $106 in revenue from the station every month. That’s enough to cover half of the station’s anticipated monthly operating tab. “It is a rate that would be competitive
in the region, and our concern, as we looked at this was, if we tried to recover our full costs, people would drive right by Carpinteria and go into Santa Barbara,” said City Manager Dave Durflinger. Still, the council questioned whether that rate was high enough to deter visitors from just parking their vehicle at the station for long, unsupervised periods that would deter others from charging their vehicles. But staff was reticent to go higher. Experts agree that charging more than $2 an hour makes it more expensive to charge one’s electric car than to pay for gasoline. With no intention of inhibiting locals’ use of electric vehicles, the council accepted the suggested rate but asked that staff explore a possible flex rate that would increase as cars sit at the station for longer than average periods. Councilmembers also voted to add Carpinteria’s oceanfront trails to the California Coastal Trails Association’s growing consortium of municipal trails, running 1,200 miles from Northern to Southern California. Coastwalk, which has been monitoring the public’s access to coastal areas for 28 years, received a 2012 State Coastal Conservancy grant to begin the CCTA and connect coastal stakeholders’ portions of the California Coastal Trail. The aim is to inch closer and closer to creating one continuous trail stretching the full length of California’s coast. “The Coastal Trail Project in Carpinteria is one of our premiere projects and also one of the jewels in our parks system,” said Parks & Recreation Director Matt Roberts. Roberts believes that by connecting this jewel with the other members of the CCTA, Carpinteria could not only highlight its natural beauty but access grant opportunities at the federal and state levels while sharing trail information and resources. The next regular Carpinteria City Council meeting will be held on Monday, Nov. 25, at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers, 5775 Carpinteria Ave.

Blue Dream goes up in smoke
A woman who encountered a small mason jar with green buds in it on Granada Way on Nov. 5 quickly phoned sheriff’s deputies to report what she believed were drugs. According to reports, the deputy “indeed recognized it as marijuana” and booked the jar and its herbal contents, which had a “Blue Dream” label on its lid, for destruction.
Two men and a woman accused of ripping off $876 worth of Loreal and Revlon cosmetics from a Casitas Pass Road drugstore on Oct. 23 were suspected by store security of conducting similar thefts at stores in Camarillo, Ventura and Goleta. The suspects allegedly entered the store and “cleared out” many of the items along with a sweatshirt that was used to conceal the stolen items.
Rat a tat tat
A deputy was called to investigate a handful of gunshots heard on Paquita Road on Nov. 3 at 6:30 a.m. and found six .22 caliber shells along with a couple of witnesses who were shacked up in a vehicle. The man who reported the shots said he had seen an unfamiliar late model car with a spoiler departing the dead end road following the shots. At the dead end, the deputy found the handful of bullets and noticed two slumbering figures in an SUV. He questioned the man and woman, and they asked him if he was there about the man who had shot the BB gun. The deputy informed them it was a bullet gun. The couple explained they were crashing in the car because the woman’s stepmother forbids the man from spending the night at her nearby residence. That morning, the woman was returning to the vehicle when she saw a man drive up in the car with the spoiler. He inquired if she lived in the area before wandering off past the dead end and into the brush. The woman climbed into the car with her boyfriend. After a short time, the man returned from the brush. He opened the trunk of his vehicle, removed what the witnesses thought was a assault rifle replica BB gun and fired off several rounds toward the brush.
The deputy put out a “be on the lookout” notice for a vehicle matching the description given by the witnesses. No suspects were tracked down for questioning regarding discharging a firearm within 150 yards of homes.
Deputies investigating a cell phone and computer theft ended up arresting the victim for allegedly possessing crystal meth on Via Real on Nov. 2. The woman, 41, called after seeing a man who had spent the night with her wander out of her motel room in the morning with her electronics. Deputies arrived at the room reported by the caller but soon discovered they were knocking at the wrong room at 7 a.m. where they disturbed a slumbering guest. A check of the registry landed deputies at the correct room, which was wide open and teeming with the brighteyed activity of the 41-year-old woman. Trash, food and clothing littered the floor, and the woman rambled incoherently, noted deputies. Suspicious of what substances might be feeding the woman’s jitters, deputies asked if she was on drugs. She said she’d long been sober since quitting meth years ago. The deputy continued to pry, and told her it was obvious she was on a stimulant. She then admitted to using days before. For full disclosure, she also told deputies she’d been posting ads online to meet men, since she was a single woman. Deputies learned from dispatch that the woman was on probation with search terms so they began looking more closely at the contents of the room. A bindle of meth was inside a container on the television, and another bindle was in the woman’s purse. At that point, the woman told deputies she no longer needed their services and she wished to speak with her mother and her attorney. When deputies instructed the woman to stand up, she did so and turned and voluntarily placed her hands behind her back in handcuff position, even though she hadn’t been asked to do so. Deputies arrested her for possession of synthetic drugs, which put a damper on the theft investigation since the woman had gone silent.

Topping off a well-rounded wardrobe wardrobe wisdom LORI COOPER Sketches by Camille Cooper I devoted a couple of columns recently to a few must-have items for men and women. I tried to think of what people would get the most wear out of for their money, and was mindful of different lifestyles. Now it’s time to make those lists more complete. Once you’ve read my suggestions, you will be armed with information to shop wisely. This month I will concern myself with a shopping list for women. In August, I suggested that women look for a good jacket, comfortable and versatile shoes, classic slacks, tops that would be suitable for various activities and a dress. Before listing items today that can round out this wardrobe, I want to emphasize the value of seasonless fabrics. By seasonless, I mean a fabric in a lightweight wool or a heavier cotton blend that is smooth and won’t wrinkle. If you buy your basics in this kind of fabric, you can wear them year-round. Keep heavy tweeds and flowy linens to a minimum unless you live somewhere that has extreme weather seasons. Starting from the bottom, a terrific pair of boots is a wardrobe staple. If you l i k e c u r re n t trends, look for an ankle boot that you can wear with jeans, skirts or dresses. These come in various heights and styles; the most versatile ones will be in gray, black, beige or brown suede with a 1.5- to 3-inch heel. On the other hand, a standard tall riding boot never goes out of style. Look for one with a one to two inch heel in black or brown leather with a slightly rounded toe. Keep your boots in good shape by taking them to a cobbler at the end of each season and store them in a dust-free place. Jeans shopping can become a marathon adventure, but stay focused by looking for two styles: everyday ones and dressier ones. Each style needs to be comfortable and stylish and very flattering! Yes, this is a tall order. By flattering
I mean it highlights body parts you like and skims over ones you are not so fond of. Shop in a store where a salesperson is helpful and tell him or her what you like and don’t like in jeans. Furthermore, do not be welded to your size: I have jeans from size 0 to 8 in my closet and they all fit well. For everyday jeans, look for a medium wash in skinny or bootleg. Dressier jeans mean a dark wash in a trouser or classic 5-pocket style. Think of Levi’s but fancier. Wear these out at night with a striking top, blazer or sparkly necklace. Speaking of sparkly: Do you have a top with sequins or glittery details? It can be a silk camisole or tank top, a bejeweled sweater or a satin blouse. Shop for one in basic black, bronze or silver or a jewel tone such as emerald or ruby. This is a top to wear out to dinner, to a holiday party, or to a special event. You can wear it with simple black slacks or your dressy jeans. This kind of top will always make you feel festive. There are a few things that I always include on my clients’ shopping lists. These include a pair of hoop earrings in either gold or silver (or mixed metals), a pretty shawl or coat for chilly nights and a good quality purse. The latter gets more use than most things in your wardrobe, so buy one that goes with most everything in your closet. Today’s “neutral” bags are not just brown and black. Red, green, cobalt and mustard yellow are remarkably adaptable colors. Leather is the most practical material for a purse because it is durable. Building a wardrobe that represents who you are and that works well for you on a regular basis takes time and effort. The payoff is feeling good in your clothes, every day!

FIRE DISTRICT: CONtiNuED FrOM PAgE 1
and Taff have applied the brakes on the full-speed-ahead plans to relocate the too small, too old Summerland station to the corner of Lillie Avenue and Temple Street and to rebuild the aging Carpinteria station on its current Walnut Avenue site. The firefighters have also been reluctant to embrace the dual station plans, but firefighter Arnold Brooks said that the union is pleased with the board’s decision to conduct a location study and will support the findings of the independent analysis. The union has advocated for a large-scale operational study to assess the overall health of district and guide its future, but Brooks said that the location study will provide important input for the facilities side of the agency. “There’s been no factual data put out to the community,” Brooks said of the study’s need. predictions for the results of the analysis are mixed. price, who lives in Summerland, argues that the densely populated community with its prevalence of steep and narrow streets should have a fire station in its midst. “Delays mean life or death to those folks,” he said of Summerland residents. Brooks, in contrast, pointed out that a Summerland station concentrates district resources on the far west end of the district. Full coverage, he said, might be best achieved by remodeling the existing Lillie Avenue Summerland station and adding a small squad of firefighters to the Santa Claus Lane area or relocating the Summerland station closer to Carpinteria. Firefighters are also interested in the possibility of consolidation with other agencies, an idea that the board is less keen on. At the Oct. 29 meeting, board members

considered writing a letter to montecito Fire protection District to broach the topic of consolidation. The matter was tabled for a future meeting, after it was agreed that the district is more interested in greater potential agency collaboration rather than consolidation. Results of the location study should be in district hands in time for a spring decision on whether to move forward with a bond election in November 2014. proponents of the downtown Summerland station are concerned that if the district does not secure funding in the near future, the current owner of the proposed property, the mosquito and Vector management District Board of Santa Barbara County, will seek out another buyer. In order to obtain sufficient voter support to pass a bond, Price acknowledged that district leaders, both on the board and among the firefighting staff, must get behind the station projects. “It’s going to be very important to get those folks on board,” he said.

Green holiday habits
Food isn’t the only area we can improve our impact on this big, beautiful planet we live on. Going out of town for a few days? Save some energy by unplugging everything that is non-essential. I don’t suggest unplugging things like the refrigerator—I once came home from a trip after a long power outage and it was not pretty. Class up your meals a bit with cloth napkins and tablecloths instead of paper products. Not only does it look nice, but it helps save old growth forests, fossil fuels and other resources used in paper production. It being the holidays, sometimes we overlook some of our regular practices. It can be hard if you have a house full of
relatives, who may or may not get along, to get everyone to recycle or put the food scraps in the compost. And who has time to make their own wrapping paper? There are many ways you can green up your holiday season, only a few of which I mentioned. My friends and I have potlucks instead of giving gifts, with the emphasis on local foods. So while we get to spend some quality time together, we are also helping out the environment in our small way. You don’t have to change all of your traditions, but start small with little things like napkins. Each small thing we do can have a large, positive impact on the planet.

Carpinteria High School celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, and the Hall of Fame event served as a kickoff to a $100,000 fundraising campaign for the CHS Athletics Centennial Fund. Final numbers are still being tallied, but event coordinator Christie Cooney estimates that the event raised $20,000 toward the endowment fund.

Apple of my eye
As the days get cooler and we approach the holidays, my thoughts turn to desserts, in particular those I can serve at Thanksgiving. I adore this holiday. A chance to get together with family and friends; to reconnect and take time to gather around a table with no other agenda than just enjoying each other’s company. It’s a holiday I have wholeheartedly adopted since I moved here from England more than 25 years ago. One of my favorite desserts is an apple tart (I wrote about one in this column last year), but really I love all apple desserts: puddings, cakes, apple bars, etc. So to celebrate this beautiful autumn season and the plethora of apples that are at the market, here are a couple of recipes for you. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
from provence to the pacific
Roasted spiced apples with manchego
3 Tablespoons butter 1 Tablespoon light brown sugar 3 whole cloves ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 4-5 grinds black pepper 1 pinch allspice 6-8 apples—peeled, cored and thinly sliced Wild honey Manchego cheese—you’ll need a 4-6 ounce piece that you can cut shavings from Sea salt Thick Greek yogurt (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter, sugar and spices all together in an ovenproof dish placed over medium-heat. As soon as the sugar has melted and the butter is foaming a little add in the apple slices and toss to coat well. Place the dish in the oven and roast for 30 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven and divide the apples evenly onto eight dessert plates. Drizzle a little of the alpine or wildflower honey over the top of the apples, then top this with the Manchego shavings. Add a sprinkle of fleur de sel and serve.
Recipe serves eight people. Note: You can also add a spoonful of thick yogurt on top. It’s delicious.
Apple, almond and amaretti crumble
Ingredients for the apples
6-8 large apples—peeled, cored and chopped into 1-inch pieces 1 lemon’s zest and juice 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/3 cup raisins ¼ cup sugar 1/3 cup water
Ingredients for the crumble
10 ounces unbleached all-purpose flour 1/3 cup almonds, chopped 10-12 ameretti cookies, crushed 9 ounces butter, cut into little pieces 1/3 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place all the apple ingredients in a deep baking dish (at least 1 ½ inches deep) and toss to combine them well.
To make the crumble, place all the flour in a large bowl. Add 8 ounces of the butter and mix it with the flour using the tips of your fingers until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Don’t worry if you have little lumps of butter left—it should look like that. Add in the sugar and mix to combine. Add in the chopped almonds and crushed amoretti and mix to combine. Cover the apples with the crumble mixture. Sprinkle a little extra cinnamon and sugar over the crumble. Dot the surface with the remaining butter. Bake in the center of the oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of crème fraiche. Recipe serves eight people.

Senior Max Vasquez “Big ’Squez”
Position: Running back/ Outside Linebacker Dimensions: 5’ 10” 160 pounds Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
Double-dose of Max Vasquez helps advance Cate in playoffs BY PETER DUGRÉ
Teammates call them Big ’Squez and Little ’Squez, but their parents named them both Max Vasquez without knowing they were both destined to attend high school and play football together at Cate School. Now, even though the two Max Vasquezes, one a senior and one a sophomore, on Cate’s football team are a nightmare to report about—and their names deserve plenty of mention in football write ups—coaches and teammates have ﬁgured out how to communicate to them while they play integral roles on Cate’s 2013 Condor League championship squad, which is currently preparing for the second round of 8-man Division 1 playoffs. The elder, Big ’Squez, is a touchdown machine from Chicago, Ill. He scored four times last week in CIF round one and three the week before in the Condor League championship win over Thacher School. Assistant coach David Soto said it was evident from the moment he set foot on campus that he was going to be a difference maker. “He had all the talent in the world as a freshman, and now he’s ﬁnally seeing what kind of impact he can have,” Soto stated. A leader on and off the ﬁeld, Vasquez is a senior prefect in the freshman dorm. The younger, Little ’Squez, proved himself valuable enough through special teams play to earn a starting role on defense as a sophomore. The opportunistic Covina, Calif. native even
turned an onside kick recovery into a touchdown. “He has a fantastic personality that makes him a natural candidate for leadership roles as he gets older,” according to Soto. He has quickly become one of the team’s most reliable and fearless tacklers. Big ’Squez has taken Little ’Squez under his wing at Cate, and they get along well. When Little ’Squez ﬁrst arrived at Cate as a freshman, his immediate connection to an upperclassman served him well. He said, “It was actually kind of nice, to tell the truth. I got to meet a lot more people than I might have.” Big ’Squez said people tried to make more of a new Max Vasquez treading on his territory, but he was unfazed. “Last year with the new Max Vasquez coming everyone was trying to start some tension, but I already knew nothing was going to happen. He was going to be another freshman and just another kid who happened to have the same name as mine. We adapted to it.”

Warriors fall in 42-35 thriller against #1 Oak Park BY PETER DUGRÉ
Just as quickly as Carpinteria High School football snatched a fourth-quarter lead from Oak Park High School at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium on Nov. 8, the Eagles stormed back to show why they swept through Tri-Valley League this season. The Warriors had edged ahead, 35-34, on a 5-yard Bryson Frazer touchdown run with 2:30 remaining in the contest, but the Eagles needed just a minute to cover 80-yards for a touchdown to seal the 42-35 Warrior loss. “I said from the beginning I didn’t think anybody in league was going to go undefeated, because we have so many good teams,” Warrior coach Ben Hallock said. “We were within a whisker of that happening here tonight.” Going toe-to-toe with the top-ranked team in Northwest Division added another impressive line to the Warriors’ (7-3, 1-3) resume and sealed their at-large acceptance into CIF playoffs. All ﬁve Tri-
Valley League teams, the toughest league in the division based on polling, are part of the 16-team playoff ﬁeld. Oak Park (9-1, 4-0) gained a 34-14 lead after scoring three unanswered touchdowns in the third quarter. That’s when Warrior senior quarterback Ian Craddock refused to roll over. On a 70-yard touchdown drive, Craddock evaded constant pressure to connect on passes of 15 yards to Ruben Garcia and 25 yards to Kevin Stein. Craddock then ran the ball on two consecutive downs to cover 15 yards and score a touchdown to help the Warriors climb to within 34-21. In total, Craddock completed 15-of-18 passes for 171 yards and a second quarter 11-yard touchdown strike to Duncan Gordon. Oak Park star quarterback Chandler Whitbord attempted to match arms with his counterpart but was intercepted by Garcia in the Warrior end zone with 11:18
Warrior Bryson Frazer proved dangerous wherever he lined up against Oak Park. He scored on a punt return, on a run from the tailback position and grabbed an interception on defense.

Peter Ramos carried the next touchdown across on a 1-yard, fourth-down plunge to cap off an 80-yard march and reduce the deﬁcit to 34-28 with 3:43 left in the game. Set for the onside kick, the Warriors reached into their bag of tricks. The Warrior kickoff team lined up to the left of the kicker but suddenly motioned to the right. At kicker, Craddock began to trot forward as if he was going to direct the ball right—where the team had reset— but he booted it left. Frazer remained camouﬂaged on the left sideline unnoticed by Oak Park. He easily recovered the ball on the Warrior 40-yard line to set the stage for the Warrior comeback. Craddock soon found Garcia on a 50yard pass that advanced the Warriors to the 5-yard line. Then Frazer, known
more for being nimble, powered the ball 5 yards up the gut to accomplish a once unthinkable comeback with 2:30 left in the game. Frazer had also scored in the second quarter on a 84-yard punt return, and he had a punt return touchdown negated by a penalty in the ﬁrst quarter. Frazer also hauled in an interception in the second quarter in the Warrior end zone to preserve a 15-14 Warrior deﬁcit entering halftime. Alas, 2:30 was too much clock for Oak Park to work with. A 32-yard touchdown pass from Whitbord followed by a successful two-point conversion put the Eagles up 42-35. The Warriors had another chance with 1:20 left, but on ﬁrst down Craddock was swarmed and hit from the backside and coughed up the football. Oak Park recovered.

Nov. 6 – In the final competition of the season, Warrior boys water polo dropped a home match, 17-5, to Oaks Christian High School. Noah Reed scored three goals and Thomas Fly and Zack Clayton had one apiece. Goalkeeper Zeke Hart had 14 saves. “We had an up and down season, but we learned a lot and each player grew in their individual skills. This experience should pay dividends for us in the years to come, as we are only graduating three seniors from our group of 18 players,” commented coach Bryan Swarm. The Warriors finished 7-16 overall and 2-8 in Tri-Valley League.
Nov. 7 – Warrior boys and girls cross country teams competed in the Tri-Valley League championships at Lake Casitas. Boys finished in sixth place of 11 teams, and girls took eighth out of 12. Warrior boys were led by Giovanni Rodriguez’s 29th place in 17:54, followed by teammates Anulfo Basave (33rd, 18:05), Francisco Arroyo (34th, 18:12), Roberto Alvarez (35th, 18:12) and Eduardo Rodriguez (39th, 18:37). For the girls, Leticia Cruz finished 39th in 23:01, followed by Gaby Fantone (40th, 23:24), Lupita Saldana (50th, 26:24), Grace Delk (51st, 26:49), and Brandy Rocha (54th, 27:21). Oak Park won both girls and boys races.

Cate water polo player Alex Brown unleashes a strike in a 13-7 Rams loss against Nordhoff to end the season.
Boys water polo
Nov. 6 – Cate boys water polo lost to nordhoff, 13-7, to close the season. Zack Allen had four goals; Alex Brown had two; and senior Matthew Firestone managed a goal despite an illness that kept him at half strength in his final game for the Rams. Coach nathan Alldredge commented, “It seemed as if nothing could go right for the Rams.” The team, which dropped to 4-9 on the season and 2-8 in Tri-Valley League, was coming off its best match of the year, a win over Carpinteria, but could not duplicate the performance. The Rams ended with a season split against the Rangers. “Cate returns the core of this young team next year, and will look to build on a season that was filled with some great victories and good memories,” Alldredge said.

Cate School’s Delaney Mayfield (#15) reaches for a ball in a Condor League championship loss to rival Laguna Blanca.
Nov. 6 – In a clash of Condor League and Division 4A titans, Cate girls volleyball lost 3-0 (25-19, 25-23, 25-19) at Laguna Blanca. Cate entered the match as the top-ranked squad in Division 4A—having swiped the spot from second-ranked Laguna Blanca in their last meeting, a 3-1 Cate win—but had trouble handling strong Laguna serves. The teams share the Condor League championship due to the season series split. Cydney Pierce had 12 kills, and Delaney Mayfield had nine. “Laguna’s tough serving caused trouble with our passing,” commented coach Greg novak. “We couldn’t get the ball to the net to run our middles, which is where we were converting.” The Rams led game two 20-18 but could not hold off Laguna.

Stork swept three sets in round one, and in round two shifted to doubles to earn a three-set sweep with teammate Emily Saito. Bryant commented that doubles play was most impressive in the quarterﬁnals. Merissa Souza/Gabi Montes De Oca swept three sets including a comeback from a 5-2 deﬁcit to win 7-5. “If we can just keep them on that level, they are a hard team to beat,” stated Bryant. They are 8-1 in the playoffs. Lesly Zapata/Natalie Saito went 2-0 in the quarterﬁnals and are 6-0 together in the playoffs.

Three straight lopsided wins to open Division 5 CIF playoffs have landed Carpinteria High School girls tennis in the semiﬁnals for the third straight season. The defending CIF champion Warriors opened playoffs with a 17-1 win over Sierra Vista High School on Nov. 6; they then traveled to Moreno Valley to defeat Vista Del Lago High School, 17-1, on Nov. 8. On Nov. 11, the team picked up a 15-3 win in the quarterﬁnals at previously undefeated Beaumont High School. The Warriors have ridden balanced, steady play from all over the roster to their victories. Top singles player Kelsie Bryant has yet to lose a game in her 9-0 streak over the three matches. Also in singles, Kassandra Ni had been playing near perfect tennis through the quarterﬁnals but suffered an injury in her last set, making her presence uncertain for the semiﬁnals on Wednesday, Nov. 13, against Arlington High School at CHS, after press time. Ni was 2-0 in the quarterﬁnals before forfeiting her last set. Of the impending match with Arlington, coach Charles Bryant stated, “This will be an incredibly tough and close match.

Playing some good, old-fashioned, smash-mouth football, the Cate School Rams ran through, over and around the visiting Upland Christian Academy (UCA) Eagles en route to a 59-18 victory during the ﬁrst round of the CIF 8-Man Division 1 playoffs. Senior running back Max Vasquez bested his three touchdowns last week by scoring four in the game played on Nov. 9 at Thayer Peck Athletic Field on the Cate campus. Vasquez credited offensive linemen Kian O’Connor, Zach Ell, Peter Kim, Abraham Tall and Keller Mochel for their key contributions to the win. But it was the Eagles who got on the scoreboard ﬁrst. On the third play of the game, UCA quarterback Erik Dahler found tight end Caeden Barnes. After making the catch, Barnes eluded the ﬁnal defender on his way to the end zone, completing the 65-yard touchdown play to give the Eagles a 6-0 lead. However, the Rams countered right away, running downhill with Vasquez and fullback Nik Pajouh to earn a ﬁrst and goal at the UCA 7. Oddly enough, Cate took the lead on the only pass play of the drive with quarterback John Basar ﬁnishing with a 7-yard shovel pass to Pajouh for the touchdown and a 7-6 lead. The Eagles answered the call with a drive of their own, ending with Dahler hooking up with fullback Beau McCombs on a short touchdown pass to put UCA back on top 12-7. “The guy’s (Dahler) 6-4 and 210 (pounds); the guy can throw the ball,” explained Cate coach Ben Soto of the opposing quarter-
back, who threw for three touchdowns on the afternoon. On the very next play from scrimmage, the Rams recaptured the lead when Vasquez got outside the edge, racing down the sidelines for a 65yard touchdown run and a 14-12 lead. With the quarter coming to an end, it was the Cate defense that came up with the big play, as Pajouh from his linebacker position, pulled down Dahler’s ﬂoater for an interception. The turnover led to Oliver Welch’s 36-yard ﬁeld goal early in the second quarter to make it a 17-12 game. After the defense forced the Eagles to punt, the Rams started the next drive at their own 15. A trick play, utilizing quarterback Michael Nettesheim as a receiver, gave Cate a ﬁrst down at the UCA 26. This led to Vasquez’s 26-yard burst for a second touchdown to widen the margin to 24-12. With the score still 24-12 in the third quarter, the Eagles drove down to the Cate ﬁve. That would be as far as they would advance, as the Rams defense stiffened, forcing UCA to give up the ball on downs. Vasquez added a touchdown reception and another 45-yard jaunt off tackle for a score. Tight end Abraham Tall also ran one in on a 30yard reverse, and running back Isaiah Washington scored on a 25-yard run. The defense contributed to the scoring deluge when Andrew Smith scooped up a fumble for the ﬁnal score. Cate travels to Faith Baptist for a second rough match on Friday, Nov. 15, at 2:30 p.m. in Canoga Park.
Second-ranked Rams win playoffs opener Cate School girls volleyball rolled over Rolling Hills Prep, last season’s champion, in the Division 4A CIF playoffs on Nov. 12. The Rams won 3-0 (25-13, 25-6, 25-8) at home and put their Nov. 6 loss to topranked Laguna Blanca out of mind. In a near flawless performance, the Ram attack started with setters Ellen Lempres and Brenna Geiger, whose smooth passing benefited the big hitters. Delaney Mayfield led with eight kills; Peyton Shelburne had seven; Maddie Becker had six; and Cydney Pierce and Tamsyn Walker had ﬁve apiece. Coach Greg Novak noted that tough serves by the Rams produced points as well. In total, 20 of the Rams’ 72 serves were aces to only two service errors. The Rams play again on Thursday, Nov. 12, at St. Mary’s Academy in Inglewood.

Going nuts CHRISTIE BOYD
carpe carpinteria Retired firefighter Bill Green, right, enjoys a free hot dog courtesy of Bill “Hot Dog Man” Connell, pictured at left, who handed out free dogs to military vets on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
With the evenings lengthening, it seems everyone is spending more time indoors and hunkering down, getting ready for the real darkness of winter. Even here in the moderate climate of Carpinteria, evenings inside can bring back childhood memories of family and time-passing strategies to cope with the colder and longer nights. My memories include hours with multiple nutcrackers and a large bowl of varied nuts in shells that, we as children, would sit around, passing the nutcrackers, tasting each of the different varieties. Those memories stir me to think about what kinds of nuts would grow here in our fairly warm winters and mild summers. Tree grown nuts generally require hot summers and a certain amount of chill hours (temperatures at or below 45 degrees), but there are quite a few varieties that will grow here successfully.
used in floral arrangements. The hardiest of the macadamias for Southern California is a hybrid named “Beaumont” that will produce nuts three to five years after planting. Macadamia nut husks are tough and hard to crack. They are best harvested after they drop to the ground in the fall. The nut itself is buttery and rich; well worth the effort of cracking.
Almonds are the number one farm crop in California. Seventy five percent of the world’s almonds come from California, with Northern California being the stronger regional producer. The Southern California coast is generally thought of as being too mild and moderate to grow almonds, but one varietal, the “All-in-One” almond tree, is very successful in our area. The All-in-One is a self pollinating tree that is diminutive in stature (15 feet) but produces a large, soft-shelled nut that is very sweet and delicious. Needing only 500 chill hours, the All-in-One is a good choice for Carpinteria.
“The Corner of Toys and Books” met the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce’s super-sized scissors on the evening of Nov. 8, and the rest is grand opening history. The chamber ribbon cutting launched a weekend of festivities at the newly merged Curious Cup and Carpinteria Toy Company, two businesses under one roof at 5285 Carpinteria Ave.
Perhaps the largest in size of the coastal nut trees, walnuts (Juglans) are not an uncommon sight in our area. As a genus, they can grow to an impressive 65 feet. Native to Southern California, the species Juglans californica is a single or multitrunked tree that typically grows from 15 to 30 feet tall. It is very drought tolerant and happy in poor, dry soil. While their size may be medium to large, walnuts tend to be a delicately leafed tree that is often planted as a shade tree. Take care in your planting location as the tree is known for dripping a sticky sap that can be difficult to remove from cars parked underneath. Used by the Chumash as a food source, the nut of the californica is smaller than other walnut tree nuts, but with its thin husk, is easy to crack and quite tasty.
Peanuts are an anomaly. Unlike the other nuts, peanuts are actually grown in the soil, not on a tree. Arachis hypogaea, as peanuts are known botanically, are actually a vegetable in disguise—they are most closely related to the pea family. Originally from South America, peanuts are easy to grow, but sandy soil is a must. “Jumbo Virginia” is a good choice for home gardeners and should be planted in the spring after any danger of frost has passed. Approximately 120 days after planting, the 10 to 20 inch plant tops should yellow and pull up easily with multiple peanuts attached to the roots. Let the peanuts dry on the vines for a couple of weeks before shelling and then dry the individual nuts again before eating. Peanuts and peanut butter are the most popular of all nuts and nut butters consumed in the United States. So, if the electricity goes off and your television and computer are as dark as the nights, consider the fun of cracking your own homegrown nuts. Spring is the planting time for nut trees, and it will be here before you know it. Christie Boyd is the co-owner of Porch home and garden store, located at 3823 Santa Claus Lane. She is a plant lover and long-time Carpinterian whose interests reach far beyond the garden.
Fosters Freeze is now a hot spot for classic cars every second Friday of the month. On the evening of Nov. 8 the burger joint looked like a scene from “American Graffiti,” with shiny chrome parked on every patch of pavement.
Another nut that is seeing some popularity in this area is the macadamia nut. Macadamia integrifolia and Macadamia tetraphylla are the two species commonly grown. These trees are native to Australia and grow from 30 to 40 feet tall. Their foliage is thick and leathery and is sometimes

CVN gains Nicaraguan following
Coastal View News touched down in Nicaragua on a mission to promote community health along with Alexis Siegel, an employee of rural health nonproﬁt, AMOS Health and Hope. Siegel made it to over 25 rural communities throughout the country, where she helped support and train community health promoters and implemented household water treatment systems. CVN made its cameo when Siegel visited her friend Brie in San Onofre where they applied ﬂuoride to school children’s teeth. When not on duty, Siegel made it to the volcanic island of Ometepe and took surf lessons in the balmy beachtown of San Juan del Sur.
CVN takes bite out of Big Apple
Reggie Hepp ushered Coastal View News to as many sites as time allowed on a recent weeklong adventure in New York City. Hepp was catching up with four friends whom she met in 1998 during the first annual 60-mile Avon Breast Cancer Walk in Santa Barbara. The fivesome had no trouble putting their feet to pavement in NYC to put checkmarks on their must-see list, including the 9/11 Memorial where they unveiled CVN. They’ve walked in 15 Avon events around the country—that’s 900 miles and many dollars in the fight against breast cancer.

Girlfriend Guru Dear Girlfriend Guru, A good friend and I had children about the same time. We have been friends for years, and although we have had our issues, we have always been very close. She is a great person, but as a parent she’s a nightmare! She has no boundaries, her kids run wild everywhere, she has no schedule, and her children are wild little monsters. I have tried talking with her about it, but she either gets mad or just blows me off. I really want to keep our friendship, but her parenting “style” just keeps getting in the way and is frankly making me question her as a person. What do you do when you disagree with a friend’s parenting? Sincerely, Worried Mom Dear Worried Mom, The good news is there is no one right way to raise children, contrary to what anyone might say. The other good news is that you are both going to mess up. If you try too hard, you become overbearing helicopter parent, if you are overly relaxed, then you risk having feral, jungle children. The best that any of us as parents can do is to try and ﬁnd a happy medium. Luckily for us, children are resilient, amazing,

little creatures, and if your friend is not abusing or neglecting her child, it will probably be OK. All things considered, maybe you ought to just let it go. Nobody likes to be told how to parent, and what works for one family may not work for another. Children aren’t born with instruction manuals (although at times I really wish they were). We are all bumbling along trying to see what ﬁts. As writer Anne Lamott once said in her book “Traveling Mercies,” “I always imagined as a kid that adults had some kind of inner tool box full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But when I grew up I found that life gave you these rusty, bent, old tools—friendship, prayer, conscience, honesty—and said ‘do the best you can with these, they will have to do.’ And they usually do.” Perhaps, Worried Mom, it’s time to stop worrying about your friend’s parenting style, and use the rusty tools that you already have: pray that she ﬁgures it out, listen to your conscience, be honest when she asks your advice, and remember that friendship is a very powerful thing. Good luck! And try not to worry. Take care, G. G.
