Warrior girls tennis players celebrated after winning their second straight CIF Division V championship.

Warrior girls repeat as CIF champs

Carpinteria High School girls tennis finished what it set out to do this season in defending its CIF Southern section division v championship on nov. 15 at Claremont tennis Club. Warriors singles players—Kelsie Bryant, Kassandra Ni and Odessa Stork—continued to be dominant against Riverside Poly, and doubles players rose to the challenge presented by Riverside’s tough lineup to help the Warriors capture the 12-6 victory. Bryant swept her sets and finished the season with a personal 67-1 mark. “Winning CIF for the second time is so unbelievable and exciting. We’ve worked toward this day the entire season, and it paid off,” stated the junior. The Warriors won the first round of play 5-1 and led 9-3 after two rounds. The third round was a race to see which Warrior could snag the deciding 10th point for the championship. Stork won her set, 6-1, to clinch the victory. Stork, a freshman, swept her three sets, and Ni, a junior, won two before subbing out in the final round. Warriors doubles team Natalie Saito/Lesly Zapata swept three sets, and the junior tandem “has been playing at an incredibly high level,” according to coach Charles Bryant. Makenna Pike/Emily Saito picked up one win in doubles play. Coach Bryant commented that even though Kelsie finished with a nearly flawless personal record, having lost only 12 games the entire season—none of which came in the championship round—the farther a team advances in playoffs, the more balance across the roster is necessary. “As incredible as her season was, she only gets us three points a match, so we needed everyone to play at a high level and they did,” coach Bryant said. He commended the entire team for great sportsmanship and enjoying the game. “This season will definitely be

School board faces $60 million in facilities needs/wants By LEa BoyD

The Carpinteria Unified School District’s Board of Education was hit with sticker shock on Nov. 15 when it received a $60 million wish list of improvements to the district’s seven campuses. Proposed facilities upgrades include new construction, such as a science wing at Carpinteria High School and a new Summerland School, as well as replacement of aging portables, electrical upgrades to classrooms and parking lot reconfiguration. Board members are now faced with the task of whittling down the list to strike a balance of needs and wants at a cost that voters will support in a bond election anticipated for November 2014. “We are not going to go to the public and ask for $60 million,” said Boardmember Terry Hickey Banks. “So we really do have to hone it down and get it right.” Developed over the last year with input from teachers, administrators and parents, the Draft Facilities Master Plan presented to board members last week

“We are not going to go to the public and ask for $60 million, so we really do have to hone it down and get it right.”

represents six months of work completed by a small group of community volunteers who assessed districtwide priorities, assigned cost estimates and considered the likelihood of public support for each. District-wide, the top priority in the plan is to upgrade infrastructure to improve electrical systems and technology. Second is replacement of portables, and

An investigation into the Oct. 21 fire that burned the mobile home of George and Nicole Juarez and their four sons concluded that the cause of the fire was accidental.

City Council to consider railroad lot split

At the Monday, Nov. 25, Carpinteria City Council meeting, the council will consider approval of splitting a union Pacific Railroad lot at Linden Avenue into three lots.

Is anyone else as disheartened over their water bill as I am? My bill shows $9 for water sales and $4.88 for a basic charge, and then when you add State Water and Capital Improvement, the final bill is $57 for one person. This must be terrible for families! My gas and electric bills run from $8 to $14. Something is very wrong here.

Boxer’s blunder

On Oct. 14, Senator Barbara Boxer compared conservative House GOP members to those who commit domestic abuse. She is referring to the action by those conservatives to warn America that implementing Obamacare will massively increase our public debt. What Boxer is hiding from us is that an increase in debt load creates an erosion of confidence in United States Treasury bills. This has a negative impact on the long term sol-

vency of the United States of America. People in positions of power in China and Japan are now questioning why our government leadership refuses to reduce our out-of-control spending. We cannot kick the can down the road any longer. On this 40 th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Boxer doesn’t mention the 54 million abortions conducted in this country nor show remorse for this disrespect for human life. Murder of the unborn is the ultimate act of domestic abuse. Speeches at every Democratic National Convention reference abortion or a pro-choice platform to huge cheers from the rabid convention hall audience. Senator Boxer and her cohorts must realize that labeling conservatives as domestic abusers will not create a stronger dollar. Instead the dollar will continue to lose value, resulting in a financial panic that will severely impact our youth, middle class and retirees.

Amrit Joy’s Hints for Healthy & Happy Living Simplify, simplify, simplify

We lead busy and complicated lives. Making a commitment to simplify your life can bring peace, healing and happiness and can help to lift your spirits and unburden you. Start small; see what you can give away, recycle. Things hold energy. When you clear away a corner, a closet, a room, you will create a lightness in your home and uplift your heart. Take your time; go slowly as you clean and clear away excess and clutter. As you open up your space in your home, you will also have more space in your heart and life. Your mind can quiet down; you will feel serene. Your thoughts will slow, allowing you to become the master of your mind and a witness to your thoughts, releasing the negative and planting the positive. Proceed mindfully. No judgment, no rush—just see what you can do. Try to do a little every day. Let it be a slow and meditative time. Enjoy, reap the benefits and allow for openness, healing, lightness and fulfillment, and let peace manifest in you and your home. Amrit Joy is a certified Hatha and Kundalini Yoga instructor. She has been practicing and teaching yoga since 1976. Amrit offers ongoing group yoga classes open to all levels here in Carpinteria.

Local representatives visit CHS ag classes

State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson and Assemblyman Das Williams visited Carpinteria High School Agricultural Sciences students last week to take a tour of the student farm, horticulture unit and classrooms. The elected officials accepted an invitation from students who then spoke about the importance of the local program. Students asked the representatives to convince Governor Jerry Brown to change his mind about cutting the Agriculture Education Incentive Grant program. CHS FFA students are among the many beneficiaries of this program, through which they gain opportunities to develop leadership and career skills, according to the students.

third is improvement to parking and circulation. Committee member Patty Buchmiller commented on the need for improved drop-off and pick-up areas in terms of safety. “If you’ve ever looked at any of the parking lots, you know it’s a miracle we haven’t lost a child,” she said. As the top priority, technology upgrades represent a significant portion of the final price. All of the district’s schools were built prior to 1970, so classrooms are ill equipped for contemporary electrical demand. “The biggest issue is the least sexy, which is enough outlets to power computers and charge wireless devices,” said Superintendent Paul Cordeiro. The Canalino/Carpinteria Family School campuses are slated for $1.1 million in electrical upgrades in the draft plan, and other campuses have similar price tags attached to electrical system overhauls. Construction of a new Summerland School is estimated to cost $6 million, while Carpinteria High School’s $20 million proposal would cover a new science wing, a small theater and lecture hall and an upgraded gymnasium, in addition to other improvements. At Canalino and Carpinteria Family School, $4.8 million could replace aging portables with a 14-classroom wing. The Aliso plan includes a $2 million option to replace portables with a new wing, and Carpinteria Middle School’s portables could be new classrooms for about $3.2 million. Alternatively, portables could be reroofed for much less than replacement. At Cordeiro’s suggestion, the board agreed that a consultant with technical expertise should be hired to thoroughly assess the condition of the district’s existing portables and provide input on their lifespan. Assistant Superintendent Cindy Abbott told the board that many of the portables were already old when purchased by the district decades ago. Other major projects at CMS include a $1.1 million remodel to the kitchen

and home economics classroom, as well as a $1.8 million upgrade to the school’s former gym, which now serves as a multipurpose room and stage. Getting voters on board for high-dollar improvements to CMS may be difficult, boardmembers noted, because the bond election of the 1990s focused on a remodel to that campus. Though that school was remodeled in 1995, parts of the existing structure were left untouched and are now in need of modernization. Necessary Americans with Disabilities Act improvements and replacement of existing lights with energy efficient ones will cost millions district-wide. The draft plan also includes the installation of solar panels at a cost of $2.2 million. Over the past 10 years, the district has

put just 0.31 to 1.12 percent of its annual operating budget toward deferred maintenance. Board President Andy Sheaffer asked administrators for greater detail on the longevity of “bandaid” facilities fixes that have stood in place of long-term solutions. “Eventually our deferrals are going to catch up with us,” he said. “They already are,” Abbott responded. Cordeiro highlighted the difficulty of passing a general obligation bond, which requires greater than two-thirds voter approval, in a district where the campuses appear to be in good shape to passersby. “They need to come walk across our nice lawns, past our nice landscaping and look inside those rooms,” he said. District administrators estimate that about $9 million could be drummed up before approaching voters. The sale of the district’s Toro Canyon property put $2.3 million in the bank for capital improve-

ments, as dictated by state law. Surplus district properties on Bailard Avenue in Carpinteria and Whitney Avenue in Summerland were last appraised at the height of the housing market at just under $4 million. CUSD also has $680,000 available in developers fees and $600,000 in Proposition 39 funding for increasing energy efficiency. Members of the Superintendent’s Facilities Committee were Kathy Abney, Don Benson, Patty Buchmiller, Beth Cox, John Franklin, Ed George, Ahmed Jahadhmy, Rich Medel and Mike Modugno. Though the board suggested more work be done to ascertain the current state of facilities in order to narrow down the list, boardmembers lauded the committee members for their hard work. “These people were amazing, all of them,” emphasized Abbott. “They brought something to the table that we really needed.”

rocked by JFK shooting 50Ago: Carpinterians Community response recorded by CHS students

Years

Photos Courtesy oF CarPinteria Valley MuseuM oF history

Twenty-five years after President John F. Kennedy’s death, Carpinteria High School students interviewed dozens of Carpinterians about the events of Nov. 22, 1963. In the interviews, which have been preserved by teacher Casey Roberts and retired teacher Joe Cantrell, historic tragedy collides with everyday life to create indelible memories of Carpinteria life a half-century ago. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination, Cantrell compiled the following accounts from a few of those oral histories. To say 1963 Carpinteria was a quiet, rural town would be an understatement. Insulated by ocean and miles of lemon and walnut orchards, many of the 5,000 residents had known one another all their lives. The city’s hub was a four-way stop at Carpinteria and Linden avenues. On opposite corners, Mills Drugstore and the Chevron gas station were lit day and night by a relentlessly pulsing, red traffic light. Eighth-grader David Mendoza spent so much time hanging-out there that he counted the flashes: exactly 43 times per minute. Wild weekend nights for local kids Jeff Mecham and Ruben Gonzalez involved rolling marble-filled coffee cans down the aisles at the “Fly Trap” (aka The Plaza Theater) to the consternation of other patrons. Carpinteria was most famous for “The World’s Safest Beach” sign and the Santa Claus Lane mini-railroad. Shortly after 11 a.m. on a November Friday, Ophelia Morales and her toddler daughter Andrea set out on foot to visit family on Plum Street. Two other young wives and moms—Hope Christensen and Lucy Diaz—were in their respective Carpinteria homes watching the TV soap opera “As the World Turns.” They forgot their household chores when the show was interrupted by alarming bulletins from Dallas. Fifteen years later Ophelia, Hope and Lucy all worked together on staff at Carpinteria High School, where Andrea was a student. Morales’ route ran close by the “Saragosa Block” on 5th Street. Trinidad Saragosa lived there, and his neighbors on all sides were Saragosas. At that moment, Trinidad was with Ophelia’s husband, Arthur, painting new condominiums near Goleta. Minutes later Ophelia and Andrea walked past Aliso School. Tony Burquez recalled that he was in the Aliso thirdgrade classroom hatching plans to chase Terry Hickey (Banks) around the playground at the first opportunity. By Tony’s account, his reverie ended abruptly as “frantic” Principal Jo Costantini burst in yelling, “The President has been shot!” Arriving at Plum Street, Ophelia found her relatives glued to the radio (there was no TV set in the house.) During her 20-minute stroll nearly every Carpinterian had learned about the shooting in Dallas either by TV, radio or word-of-mouth. News spread rapidly at three major employers. (All have since closed local operations.) Staff at Infrared Industries on Linden Avenue jammed into to the office to hear a single radio. Rudy Casso stayed uninformed for an hour laboring in a sound-proof room. A block away at the lemon packing house, Tony Jimenez, Henry Macias, Joe Rubio and Lupe Tejeda finished lunch and resumed “pushing hand trucks down the aisles” when the boss stopped them. Production halted at Josten’s in Summerland. Four Carpinterians worked near the “Gold Crib” where precious metals for school class rings were stored: Sylvia Vasquez, Grace Anderson, Edith Christie and Pauline Kelsey. Meanwhile, in Santa Barbara, a thirdgrader named Ben Hallock was gathering acorns to throw at his friends during lunch recess. Pauline Kelsey’s greatgrandson Connor is a starter on the 2013

The Linden Avenue of JFK’s presidency had a similar appearance to today’s bustling commercial street. The street trees have changed, as well as the businesses, but many of the storefronts have survived 50 years of Carpinteria history.

Ophelia Morales, pictured in the 1972 CHS yearbook, was a young mother raising a toddler in 1963. Walking through town with daughter Andrea, Ophelia unknowingly crosses paths with other Carpinterians as they experience the shock and sadness of JFK’s assassination. CHS football team, coached by Hallock. Word reached future Carpinteria mayor Ernie Wullbrandt while he was plumbing a sink. Cottage Hospital pediatrics nurse Nancy Cravens Rubio immediately phoned home to her husband, Ed. At the County Ag Office, Marcus Cravens received an urgent call from his wife, Rowena. Directly across Linden from the Cravens home, no one at the Villalpando family market knew until Reyes Villalpando raced home from his teaching assignment. Chiharu and Richard Kitagawa, pioneers in the Carpinteria flower industry, listened on a car radio while driving to Los Angeles to apply for a bank loan. Former Warrior footballers John Godkin and Brian Husted and a girl named Ruth Tremmel were at Santa Barbara City College. In a remote hillside orchard, Miguel Garcia was spraying insecticide when

Carpinteria high school student Mike Donnelly recalls being in biology class when word of the President’s shooting spread through the local campus.

Longtime CHS English teacher Harry McKown received the news of JFK’s shooting as he walked the halls of the high school. the foreman told him, “Una desgracia a pasado.” News hit Marymount student Linda Mayer (Meeder) following a campus religious service. Her mother heard over the fence from a neighbor on Star Pine Road. Linda’s father, deputy sheriff Ted Mayer, learned from his patrol car radio. Tillie Jimenez may have passed Ophelia and Andrea Morales going opposite directions. Jimenez’s family lived in a Cramer Street house destined for destruction during the 1969 winter floods. After staying home that morning, Jimenez rushed to CHS for afternoon classes. Downtown she noticed extraordinary numbers of somber people simply talking or clumped in storefronts listening to news broadcasts. Normal business appeared to have stopped. CHS occupied the site of the current middle school, and shortly before lunch campus life seemed normal. Tillie Jimenez’ future husband, Mike Donnelly, was in Ed Copley’s biology lab. In a different class, surfer Jeff Boyd gazed out a classroom window wondering about the late autumn swell at Tar Pits. Teacher Harry McKown recalled striding down the main hallway dressed in facultymandatory suit and tie. Student Linda Ortiz had just changed from PE clothes to regular attire: “Puffy skirts, flat shoes and hair scarves.” Several people recalled that all women on campus wore skirts or dresses (not too short!). One class, though, was in disarray. Senior Joe Ballesteros arrived late for Mr. John Calderwood’s English section and quickly blurted out that the President had been attacked and might be dead. Ballesteros sounded earnest but had a reputation as a jokester, so his classmates

were disturbed yet dubious. Minutes later a school-wide announcement confirmed Ballesteros’ news to the entire student body. By then, normalcy was shattered at every school campus. In Canalino School classrooms, black and white TV broadcasts replaced regular lessons as teachers and students struggled to make sense of an incomprehensible situation. At St. Joseph’s Church, confirmation students noticed that Fr. Francis Roughan was visibly shaken. Several Carpinteria Junior High School students remembered counselor Tyson Willson going room to room delivering the news. One student, Greg Lomeli, would eventually return to the campus as a teacher and counselor himself. Teacher Nat Hawthorne’s reaction was to silently rest his head on his desk. Others left class to compose themselves. Summerland kindergarten instructor Esther Young wept and embraced the colleague who told her. The children said the Pledge of Allegiance and were sent home. Neither adults nor children seemed sure about how to behave. As night fell people sought comfort

Joe Ballesteros, a CHS senior at the time of the assassination, arrived late to his English class on Nov. 22 and informed his classmates of the tragic news. with loved ones and tried to make sense of the day. Charlie Chunn, who owned an orchard on Santa Monica Road, voiced the consensus of opinion: “We thought the country might never be the same.” Still, Carpinterians were resilient and at least one family had reason to celebrate— a baby named Andi Medel was born that day. Life would continue because, as Chunn said, “At the end of the day there were trees to be watered and customers to be tended.”

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

A woman of extremes I have become a woman of extremes— my looks, my personality, my moods, and my desires all are shifting, expanding, shrinking and taking me places I’m not sure I expected to be. My looks morphed from tall and slender to shorter and grandmotherly. (I refuse to consider the terms plump or pudgy, although I might consider curvy.) Also my blond hair MELINDA slowly darkened over the years when those wiry gray things started growing in, resulting in the need for highlights. Surprise came after a while. I didn’t have dark roots showing; I had white ones. One day I just decided, “Hey, I started out life as a tow head. Might as well end up as one too.” So I am a platinum blond once again without having to pay for it. Not only have my looks changed but also how other people see me. I have become invisible to teenagers as they walk through stores or down streets. I am also invisible—and so is my car—to drivers in a hurry, drivers looking for parking places or drivers in sports cars that think they own the road. If I only knew how to call on this secret power of invisibility as needed, it might be a useful tool. On the other hand, I have become the center of concern for grocery clerks (“Don’t you need help out, Ma’am?”), middle-aged men who look at me and see their mothers (or grandmothers), and young children who think I carry cookies in my purse (sometimes I do). It may be hard for some of you to believe, but I was quite shy as a child. As I matured, I began to understand how to speak up for myself, give my opinion. This is a trait some of my friends, maybe even my husband, might want me to tone down a bit. I’m still working on patience, but now I find myself, at times, very sympathetic and friendly, such as when I see young parents out with their children or when I want to contact old friends before I forget who they are. But there are other times when I have no patience at all and become irritated at the smallest infraction on my personal space or time. Waiting in lines to pay, trying to talk to a real person over the phone when I call a business, or

forgetting where I put things all make me either annoyed, exasperated, vexed or peeved—your choice. Some days I wake up with energy to spare, ready to write another column, throw another pot o r re a d a n o t h e r book. Other days I’m so tired I count brushing my teeth as a chore. I’m not sure why my moods fluctuate from sweet and sunny to melancholy or from invigWITTWER orated to bored, but they do. Maybe it has to do with arthritis, the plague of the aging. Some days I can move without hurting and am so happy I want to tap dance down the street; other times I think twice before taking a trip upstairs. Pain can be a big deterrent, and one I could do without. Now desires: my extreme desires are actually very tame. I want time, more time than I seem to have, to play. I’ve put in countless hours working, have even enjoyed some of them, but now I want to return to the world of play. I want a spick-and-span house, but I don’t want to clean it. I want appetizing meals, but I don’t want to cook. I want fresh clothes to put on every day, but I don’t want to do the laundry. And I definitely don’t want to do any more paperwork. I want to play with my ever-charming grandsons, and I want to travel to Russia. I want to curl up with a good book, and I want to go zip lining in Costa Rica. I want to do nothing, and I want to do everything. So, how do I make peace with my world of extremes—this world of laughter or tears, pleasure or pain, amusement or labor? I am slowly learning to give myself permission to play more and more. Work, at least for me, can be a sad addiction, one I want to break, overcome, change. I want to nurture the play side of life, give myself permission more often to have lunch with the girls, visit the zoo to feed the giraffes, and sail to Tahiti. It seems I can’t do much about the tears or the pain.

Accessorizing naked

Deputies investigated a call about a woman who had wandered outside mostly naked on Carpinteria Avenue at 6:21 p.m. on Nov. 9. Her roommate said the woman, 64, was uncontrollably drunk and departed wearing only underwear and a scarf for no apparent reason. Deputies quickly found her, and in conversation, she could not assure them that she could keep her erratic behavior under wraps. The roommate refused to be held responsible for the woman. Fearing that the woman could wander into traffic or become the victim of sexual assault, officers arrested her for public intoxication after retrieving a robe from her residence.

Who’s laughing now?

A woman reported that her neighbor punched her in the face on Nov. 8 at 4:30 p.m. on Carpinteria Avenue. She said no words were exchanged. The neighbor, a 53-year-old woman, allegedly socked her, and it wasn’t the first time. The victim, 68, wanted to press charges this time around and believed her quick-to-strike assailant was mentally unstable. Deputies asked the suspect what had happened. She said she had returned from the grocery store unable to pay for her groceries since her credit card had gone missing. When she was sharing her woes with other neighbors in a common area at the apartment complex, she noticed her alleged victim chuckle. She walked up and punched her with a closed fist, and uttered, “Call the police; have me arrested; I’ll go to jail.” She got her wish when deputies arrested her for assault.

Boys will be boys

Deputies encountered a body laying half in the street and half in front of a parked vehicle on Elm Avenue at 7 p.m. on Nov. 8. The body, which belonged to a 21-year-old man, managed to communicate to deputies that he had gotten his paycheck and used it to go out drinking with his boys. He could not say what he drank or figure out in which direction his place of employment was. Deputies

brought the man to jail for public intoxication.

Scenery thieves

An employee at a Via Real club reported to deputies that two men had been trespassing on the property and taking photographs of their Rolls Royce without permission on Nov. 11. The employee had asked the men to leave on three occasions, but they kept returning. Other auto dealers had exclusive rights to use the property for marketing materials, and the men, who were photographing the Rolls Royce in order to present it to potential buyers, had not asked or received rights to include the property in their sales effort. Using a license plate number supplied by the employee, deputies tracked down the dealership involved, so management opted to handle the trespassing and civil matter internally.

Jarring traffic stop

A man pulled over for speeding at Highway 101 and Santa Claus Lane on Nov. 1 was investigated for possession of marijuana and became upset when the deputy accidentally shattered his mason jar. At the driver’s window, the deputy quickly smelled marijuana. He also observed a container that he recognized as a bong holder. The man admitted that it had a bong in it and that he possessed less than a gram of marijuana. The deputy located a mason jar containing the weed and rested it on a sweater. When he continued searching the car, the officer absentmindedly lifted the sweater, causing the jar to fall outside the vehicle and smash on the pavement. The driver took issue with the casualty of the search. He wanted to keep his marijuana as repayment. The officer noted that he would have let the man off without a ticket anyway, since it was a miniscule amount of marijuana, but he told the driver to either destroy the marijuana or take a ticket. The driver rubbed the weed into the ground with his shoe to avoid a citation. The deputy said the man could file a claim with the county for his broken property.

Spotlight on Aza Schepat

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

let’s go!

By Kim DrAin

Tucked behind Casitas Plaza is a small center of commerce called the TomrA recycling Center. making sure the transfer of bottles and cans goes smoothly and quickly is affable recycling agent Aza Schepat. Whether people arrive at the lot motivated by environmental concerns or just to make a few extra dollars, Schepat greets them all with a friendly “Welcome” and a helping hand, if needed. Having traveled the globe, Schepat is adept at dealing with people from all walks of life. often mistaken as a gathering spot for loitering transients, the recycling center, he quickly points out, is an integral part of our community and is visited by all types of industrious citizens. According to Schepat, city officials have visited the site and encouraged him not to do business with the homeless. “What is a homeless person anyway?” Schepat questioned. “What signs would i look for? in this economy, aren’t most of us just a paycheck away from being homeless ourselves?”

What improvements would you like to see made within the city? i witness a lot of innocent people being harassed. i wish the police force would focus more on serious crime. i realize the homeless situation is a problem, but it is not one that should be brushed away like garbage. The community needs to work together to offer more assistance.

Niece of original owner buys Valley Barbers

The recent change in ownership at Valley Barbers proves that in Carpinteria the more things change the more they stay the same. When Annamarie Mendoza, granddaughter of Valley Barbers co-founder Marty Macias, signed her name on the business, she brought it back to its original bloodline. Mendoza’s husband, Anthony, and fellow barber Eddie Rosales had owned the business for several years, having purchased it from the nephew of co-founding barber Cipriano “Zip” Gonzalez. The duo of “Marty and Zip” represented a long chapter in local barbershop history. The two barbers kept Carpinterians trimmed and shaved at 4920 Carpinteria Ave. for about 50 years. Mementoes of the early days at Valley Barbers can still be seen from the two 1950s-style barber chairs. Photos of Marty and Zip hang on the walls, and the original barber pole has been installed inside the barbershop.

Above, the team behind Valley Barbers is made up of, from back left, Eddie Rosales, Anthony Mendoza, Annamarie Mendoza and Carlos Alvarez, and Melinda Diaz, seated. From left are original Valley Barbers owners Marty Macias and Cipriano “Zip” Gonzalez.

Warrior senior Ian Craddock intercepts a ball during a 31-23 Warrior playoff victory at La Salle High School.

CHS football advances to CIF round two

Home game against El Segundo scheduled Nov. 22, 7:30 p.m. By PEtEr Dugré

warrior football won in the opening round of CiF northwest Division playoffs, 31-23, at la salle High school on nov. 15. next up, the warriors (8-3) host El segundo High school (8-3), the Pioneer league champion, on Friday, nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the la salle game, the warriors and Lancers traded leads for the first half. The Warriors struck first in the first quarter on a 28-yard run by senior running back Bryson Frazer. la salle answered with a touchdown run and two-point conversion to go ahead 8-7. warrior senior fullback Peter Ramos then broke off a 55-yard run for a touchdown and 14-8 lead. “The way they aligned on defense, i thought we could get some big plays against them,” said coach Ben Hallock. “we had a two-play drive for a touchdown, a three-play drive for touchdown and a four-play drive for a touchdown.” The Lancers again kept pace with a 9-yard running score to take a 15-14 advantage before the end of the first quarter. Senior quarterback Ian Craddock ran for a 10-yard second-quarter touchdown to put the warriors up 21-15 at halftime. Craddock booted a 31-yard field goal in the third quarter to put the Warriors ahead 24-15. And Frazer scored again on a 5-yard run to put the warriors up 31-15 in the fourth quarter. La Salle scored the game’s final touchdown but never led in the second half. Frazer had 11 rushes for 96 yards; Ramos had 10 for 69 yards; and Craddock had nine rushes for 62 yards. Craddock completed all four of his pass attempts for 95 yards. Duncan gordon caught two passes, one for 52 yards, to compile 84 total yards. Craddock and Ruben garcia each hauled in interceptions. “Our defense did

a fine job. Basically we gave up 15 points. (The Lancers) got the last score with 30 seconds left,” Hallock said. La Salle had ranked fifth in Northwest Division in the final polling of the season on Nov. 4. The Warriors ranked seventh.

El Segundo scouting report

The Warriors now face El Segundo, which entered playoffs as the fourth seed. El segundo defeated santa Paula High school, 35-28, in round one, a game in which sPHs led until the end of the fourth quarter. Both the warriors and El segundo beat South High School (Torrance) this season. The Warriors won 42-20 on Sept. 6, and El segundo won 59-34 on nov. 8. The Warriors beat SPHS 28-11 on Nov. 1. El Segundo features junior quarterback lars nootbaar who has thrown 26 touchdowns to just six interceptions on the season and was a big part of last week’s comeback over sPHs. His favorite target is senior Jamie stewart, who ate up sPHs last week for 152 receiving yards and a touchdown. warrior coach Ben Hallock compared the athletic quarterback-receiver duo to Oak Park’s lethal combination that outdid the warriors two weeks ago. “it’s going to be a challenge to stop them defensively,” Hallock said. He added, “They throw the ball; you think the guy’s covered, but they still catch it.” The Warriors have not advanced past the second round of playoffs since 2005. Hallock said the team has essentially been in playoff mode since Tri-Valley league play opened over a month ago. “We’ve been in that focused mode. The thing is, we’re still getting better,” Hallock said.

Scott Holmes used the object in his left hand to obtain the charity contribution displayed in his right hand.

Local sixth-grader raises big bucks for Casa Esperanza moved by the financial struggles facing Casa Esperanza homeless shelter, sixth-grader scott Holmes raised $926 in a Hoopathon, a marathon basketball shooting event he planned and executed on nov. 10. Holmes sank 656 free throws while shooting continuously for two hours, and the pledges he collected in the one-man fundraiser will support Casa Esperanza, which may be forced to reduce its services due to budget shortfalls. “it was fun,” said Holmes of the Hoopathon. “i raised money doing something i like to do.” Holmes’ sixth-grade class at Marymount of santa Barbara had discussed the homeless shelter’s current predicament and decided to raise funds for the beleaguered nonprofit. On his own initiative, Holmes decided to hold the Hoopathon after picking up the fundraising idea from Sports Illustrated Kids.

He collected pledges from friends and family, including a major contribution from his grandfather, who promised $1 for every basket made. when he arrived at school and told his teacher, Kate Burris, about his philanthropic success, “she was speechless for about a half a minute, then she was very happy,” he reported. Holmes’ father, will, is the director of public services at Cate school, a job that entails connecting Cate students and staff with worthy causes throughout the area. Having observed his dad’s energy and commitment to community projects, Scott became inspired to give back as well. Asked why he dedicated himself to Casa Esperanza’s plight, scott said, “i just think it is so kind and generous of people to take complete strangers in and give them shelter.” ––Lea Boyd

Cate football ends season at Faith Baptist Condor League champs look to future CVN REPORT

Cate School 8-man football was mistake-prone at the most inopportune time in a 50-22 playoff loss on Nov. 16 at Faith Baptist High School. The Condor League champion Rams finished 7-4 on the season. Faith Baptist (7-4) took control from the start of the game with a touchdown on the game’s second play. Faith took a 28-0 lead before Cate was able to score. The Rams did not get on the board until the fourth quarter on a 7-yard Michael Nettesheim run. Nettesheim also found Keller Mochel for a touchdown pass later in the quarter. Coach Ben Soto commented that the Rams uncharacteristically fumbled the ball six times and had four turnovers. He took responsibility for the mishaps. “I didn’t have the guys ready to play,” he said. “It’s not the way we wanted it to end, but we have plenty of good to take away from the season.” The Rams, back-to-back Condor League champs for the first time, return a majority of their starters next season for a run at three-in-a-row.

Kelsey named semifinalist for national football award

If a football team’s long snapper is noticed, it’s usually for sailing the ball over the punter’s head. Thusly, Carpinteria High School senior long snapper Connor Kelsey, who has been flawless this season at the position, has performed his task to little fanfare. However, he’s recently gained recognition from premier long snapping coach Chris Rubio as one of 21 semifinalists for the annual Chris Rubio Award. Kelsey has been coached by Rubio and is currently ranked fifth in California and 17th of 202 long snappers nationally. The award winner will be announced on Jan. 17 in Las Vegas. Last year’s top snapper, Cole Mazza, currently starts at the position for topranked University of Alabama. Kelsey also plays wide receiver and linebacker for the Warriors. Connor Kelsey

The second-ranked Cate School girls volleyball team played into the semifinals of CIF Division 4A playoffs but met its match in a 3-2 loss (25-13, 20-25, 25-22, 2125, 15-11) at Pacifica Christian on Nov. 19. The Rams had troubles in the first set but righted the ship in the second set, rallying back from a 13-6 deficit. The third and fourth sets were highly competitive see-saw battles, but Pacifica proved too powerful. “It seemed the Seawolves were on a mission in the 5th set. They fed everything to their outside hitters, and we couldn’t stop their powerful swings,” commented coach Greg Novak. The Rams won a home quarterfinal match, 3-0 (25-13, 25-14, 25-20), against Paraclete High School on Nov. 16. Paraclete set the tone early with commanding swings from its outside hitters, according to Novak, but Cate countered with defensive adjustments that paid off. Peyton Shelburne, Hannah Bolwin and Sumner Matthews defended the back row with a combined 25 digs to set up the counter attack. Cydney Pierce and Maddie Becker served six of the team’s 12 aces. Shelburne had 11 kills, Pierce had nine and Walker had eight. Following the semifinals loss, Novak stated, “It was a great, great season for Cate volleyball. This team made an impression on a lot of people. I’m a very lucky coach to have such a great group of players.”

Grand Canned Food Drive feeds the hungry

A dynamic batch of local nonprofits joined forces to fight hunger in Carpinteria this holiday season. Carpinteria Boys and Girls Club, Carpinteria High School FFA, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria and the local Boy Scouts went door to door on Nov. 16 collecting non-perishable items in order to donate food in the name of the Grand Canned Food Drive. People in the Carpinteria community donated time and food to help ensure a great holiday season for those in need by contributing to the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. “This is only the first year, but we really hope to continue our efforts and live up to the name of the Grand Canned Food Drive in the years to come,” said John Avila, FFA advisor. “It was awesome to be able to come together with other organizations for a great cause!”

Rotary takes on park pickup

Morning Rotarians rolled up their sleeves and put on their work gloves on Nov. 9 to help clear overgrown plants and clean sidewalk pavers at Tomol Interpretative Play Area. The club funded the lions share of the near $1 million park project, which has become one of the most popular parks in Carpinteria, and has committed to maintain the space through an endowment fund and through members’ elbow grease.

The Carpinteria Lions Club learned what’s on tap these days at Island Brewing Company during a recent visit from owner and brewer Paul Wright. Wright traced the resurgence in beer making back to 1980, when the U.S. claimed only 89 breweries. Today there are over 2,500 breweries in the country and, of these, 2,480 produce craft beers.

Steers come home for fattening

Playa Del Sur 4-H Show Team members brought their Maine Anjou steers home to Carpinteria on Nov. 17 after purchasing them from Hyder Cattle Company. The team will raise steers to show in the 2014 Santa Barbara County Fair in Santa Maria. While learning about animal nutrition, daily care, beef production and showmanship, team members will work to increase their steers’ weights by about 100 pounds each month to weigh 1,250 to 1,300 pounds in time for the fair. The steers will also be exhibited at the Santa Barbara Fair & Expo next spring.

Questions about Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization, based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to make the world a better place.

Eat, shop and stroll in Summerland Visit Summerland this Saturday, the 23rd, for cupcakes, poetry, music and more! The town’s busy merchants have combined efforts to stage an all-downtown holiday open house from 12 to 8 p.m. Sixteen businesses along the town’s main street will feature holiday fun for visitors, ranging from prize drawings and free edibles to music and even dog adoptions. “Just follow the twinkling lights,” advises organizer Rita Villa, whose shop, Bonita, will host “interactive poetry” and live music. South of the border music by the band Conjunto Zacaanchu played from Bonita’s porch will waft over Lillie from late afternoon until evening. Twinkle lights will guide visitors through town to view, sample, sip and shop. Each store will feature its own holiday attraction. Café Luna is another live music venue. Nearby neighbors Waxing Poetic will have prize drawings throughout the day, and Montecito Urban Farms will stage a mini farmers market. Just Folk is serving finger food and appetizers. Across the street, Pine Traders will have cupcakes. And the treats don’t end there. Summerland School students will preside over tables of delectable homemade goodies (with funds going to the Astrocamp field trip). Up the street, Amelia Jane will host the Chapala Farm stand with fresh produce, eggs and jams, and next door Botanik will have a trunk show of Mia Maria jewelry. The Bikini Factory and Indian Summers clothing stores are bestowing free gifts with a purchase. The Summerland Beach Café is hosting the organization DAWG, offering dog adoptions and information. A short walk down Lillie Avenue, newcomer to town, Forged Lights, is having prize drawings. Pedi-cabs, anyone? They’ll be zipping along Lillie Avenue, offering joy rides to footsore shoppers. The footsore ones might also want to stop in at the salon Kashmir to sample their specials: reflexology and mani-pedis. Other shops and eateries are participating throughout Summerland. And don’t forget Summerland Winery’s wine specials. But tipplers might be advised to catch one of those pedi-cabs instead of driving. The holiday open house is the third annual, each year bigger than the last. Rita Villa of Bonita, Café Luna’s Jeanette Van Hirtum and Waxing Poetic’s Ellie Olsztynski are lead organizers. The three women are also the core of a new downtown business organization that promises to infuse the community with new vitality.

the booths at every Thursday’s farmers market. So think about those hand-held and hand-worked gifts when you shop. Think of your neighbor’s hands guiding fabric on her sewing machine or selecting beads to string, or turning a ceramic pot on a wheel or painting a card. This holiday season, think of those hands and the creativity and dedication and love and hope that goes into the work when you’re selecting gifts for the special people in your life.

Summerland School’s busy garden

Summerland kids are digging deeper these days, thanks to their new garden teacher, Bianca Pisano. A grant from the Adelle Davis Foundation and school site monies are funding Pisano’s position. She’ll be giving weekly garden instruction to all grade levels, and will incorporate science content along with the hands-on work of planting, weeding and harvesting. Locals planning to partake in the downtown open house festivities on Nov. 23 can make a day of it by joining the school’s work party from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to spruce up the garden and grounds.

Summerland School’s new garden teacher, Bianca Pisano, gets students excited to sow seeds in the school’s plot. hand-crafted items, sparkling jars of jam, little decorated trees and wreaths, tables of baked goods that set your mouth watering, the tangy smell of chicken enchilada casserole wafting from the lunch tables. I almost get a case of sensory overload! The three church bazaar represents the combined efforts of crafting ladies at the Baptist, Community and Lutheran churches. I’ve heard they work on projects for this sale year-round. They rotate between venues, and this year it was held at the Baptist church. I now regard this event as the perfect entry to the holiday season. I went with my husband and my friend Sheila Tenold. Roger did a lot of standing around drinking a cup of tea while Sheila and I combed through the bounty on every table. We both got quite a bit of stuff: jam, certainly, tea towels and pot holders, a baby quilt, scarves, Christmas ornaments. Who could resist a little silver spiral tree centered by a jingle bell, especially since some of the ladies were wearing them as necklaces? All those handmade goods were cheaper than what they would cost in a store. Plus, they have the love factor. You can get a perfectly assembled potholder at CVS—likely made in China by underpaid workers. Or you can get something a little different, something sewn in Carpinteria by someone who may live just a few houses down. A “worker” whose guiding principle is generosity and so she’s maybe

The choice of colors and textures and design that reflect each creator’s aesthetic. I like to look for a little whimsy, a quirkiness that makes a thing stand out. Even a loose thread is proof of the hand-worked item. Perfection comes from factories. Originals come from the hands of women (sometimes men, too, of course).

Coastal View News photographer Evelyn Cervantes set out on Nov. 17 to capture Sunday afternoon activities Carpinteria-style. The Brooks Institute grad stumbled upon a range of scenes that lit up her lens as she made her way from Linden Field to Ash Avenue. The forecast calls for midweek rain, but these folks enjoyed outdoor living long before the threatening storms.

Surrounded by family and friends, Davin Nystrom celebrates his 6th birthday with a Lego cake at Linden Field.

Luke Piazza blasts a ball skyward on a pitch by his dad, Chris Piazza. The seaside ball game ended sandy and salty.

Jenna holds the remains of Blackie, a well-loved pup who frequented the beach at the base of Ash Avenue. Blackie’s buddies commemorated him on Nov. 17.

A fairy tale of a meal: The Three Pigs

CVN rushes Portuguese fortress

Biotech researcher Jeanette Musser recently shared her knowledge—applied locally at Dako—at the European Congress of Pathology in Lisbon, Portugal. Accompanied by daughter Megan Musser, Jeanette was able to shed the lab coat to tour the historical maritime sites, which are plentiful in Portugal. They pulled out their Coastal View News at Torre de Belem, a fortress built in 1514 in the Tagus River, which was a starting point for navigators of the trades. The travelers found Lisbon to be a most hospitable destination.

CVN visits big trees

Four local families stood in the shadows of giant redwoods on a summer 2013 trip to Sequoia National Park. The Blair, Ornelas, Beaver and Early (Freeman) clans all hit the road for their rustic vacation in some of the oldest and biggest forests on earth. To provide some scale, they unveiled CVN while gathered around Tunnel Log.

Tender pulled pork, crispy prosciutto and spicy chorizo all housed together with grilled flatbread and topped with a poached egg. Where can we wolf down this dish? see answer below * Why don…t you bring your pig to the party? Oh no, he…s a boar.
