SkateGarden forum brings all sides to discussion
Come and get it!
By LEA Boyd
Tempers flared and threatened to ignite at the Nov. 20 SkateGarden Forum, but members of the nonprofit Carpinteria Skate Foundation kept their calm and carefully steered the sensitive conversation toward a civil discussion of the skatepark and community garden proposed for the city’s 5th Street park property. Not everyone left the forum at the Carpinteria Woman’s Club that evening convinced that the “SkateGarden” would be the best use of the city’s 5th Street park property. Nonetheless, the presentation by professional skatepark designer Spohn Ranch, a company responsible for the construction of nearly 1,000 skateparks internationally, led to new dialogue between those opposed to the skatepark on the property adjacent to the Amtrak station and those committed to bringing the project about. The proposal is yet to be officially considered by the city, which purchased the .66-acre Union Pacific railroad property in 2012 for $355,000. Skate Foundation members had combed satellite maps of Carpinteria in search of an appropriate property to construct a park for skateboarders, and they encouraged the city to purchase the 5th Street lot for that purpose. City enthusiasm for a skatepark appeared to exist until last spring when residents of the surrounding neighborhoods began

The holiday spirit caught a hold of the Carpinteria Family School on nov. 22 when its annual Harvest Festival brought a morning of learning disguised as fun. Students completed art projects, made music, learned math from a banjo-playing scarecrow, made tea from schoolgrown herbs, churned butter and chopped hundreds of veggies into the makings of a hearty soup. The morning activities culminated in a lunch on the lawn. Pictured above scooping salad at left is Katy olivas, while from front to back, Kristina Calkins, Evelyn Calkins, Kimberly Berg, Layla Berg, Ashlyn Boyd, Tess Lewis, Elise Van Paris, Kainoa Glasgow, Sky Souza and Lourdes Castillo eagerly await the stone soup meal they are about to be served.
Silver Sands residents can rest easy City relinquishes easements in park By Erin LEnnon
The Carpinteria City Council ended nearly two decades of negotiations, planning and waiting on Nov. 25 by approving an agreement between the City of Carpinteria and Silver Sands Mobile Home Park. Park residents got a sense of relief, and the city got more land. In a 4-0 vote, a 19,000-square-foot portion of Third Street, the boundary between the mobile home park and the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park, became part of the city park, and the city relinquished its right to use 41,000 square feet of land within the residential neighborhood. The journey began in 1997 when Silver Sands residents banded together to purchase their mobile home park at
349 Ash Ave. from the existing owners. Negotiations with the city began that same year. Carpinteria wanted to adjust the mobile home park’s boundaries to accommodate Salt Marsh Nature Park improvements, and park residents wanted two obsolete city easements within the 80-space, circa-1950s park erased. These easements could have been used to extend Dorrance Way and Cypress Avenue into Silver Sands, which would have wiped out 20 homes. It wasn’t until the 1990s that anybody realized that the residential park was situated atop land that the city had a right to develop. As part of their 1990s negotiations,
park residents also agreed to improve their public parking area that fronts Ash Avenue in exchange for the city abandoning the easements. But when Carpinteria began preparing the Beach Area Specific Plan in 1999, which consisted of road improvements in the city’s beach area, the Ash Avenue upgrades dropped down the to-do list. Instead, Silver Sands spent $1.2 million on an infrastructure project that replaced electricity, gas, water, cable and telephone within the park and connected Silver Sands’ drainage system to the city’s sewers, according to resident David Fiener. All of those upgrades depleted funds for a long time. Without enough in their reserves for the Ash Av-
enue upgrades and with the city caught up in improvements to the beach area, the property transactions sat in wait for another 14 years. Now, Silver Sands is ready to pay Carpinteria $185,000 as part of the full agreement that the city council approved on Monday night. These funds are to be used for improvements to the park’s Ash Avenue frontage. The city-managed project is priced at $515,000, with the city putting up the additional $330,000. The council’s unanimous role call vote created a wave of applause. “Even at the start, this was a great effort between Silver Sands owners and the city,” said Mayor Brad Stein, “and this couldn’t have come out better.”

New commercial recycling regs considered by city council
Carpinteria Environmental Coordinator Erin Maker presented the Carpinteria City Council on Nov. 25 with a proposed Integrated Waste Management Ordinance that would replace the city’s current waste management program if adopted on Dec. 9. The new ordinance aims to make existing state and federal regulations a part of Carpinteria’s waste management practices while also increasing recycling and advocating for the health and wellbeing of the city, according to Maker. To achieve those goals, the proposed ordinance requires businesses to recycle. Owners can make an agreement with the city’s contracted hauler, E.J. Harrison and Sons, Inc., share commercial recycling with neighboring businesses or haul away their own recyclables. “It’s estimated that about three-quarters of the waste that comes from commercial sectors, which includes multi-family residences and regular businesses, ends up in the landfill,” said Maker, explaining the decision to require businesses to recycle if the ordinance is adopted. The new ordinance will be even tougher on those performing construction and demolition work. Companies in this field must keep at least 65 percent of their waste out of landfills. “A lot of construction and demolition waste is recyclable,” said Maker. The new ordinance does give a bit of assistance along with mandates. Under the new plan, E.J. Harrison would provide unscheduled collection services for all of Carpinteria, whether it is a developer with waste lumber, concrete and metals
Saturday, Dec. 14, will be a fine time to find oneself in downtown Carpinteria. The annual Holiday Spirit Parade will roll up Linden Avenue that day beginning at 3 p.m., and the Hospice Tree Lighting will take place at the Seal Fountain at 5 p.m. Registration is now open for parade entries; forms can be printed off the city website, carpinteria.ca.us, and must be submitted by Thursday, Dec. 5. Stars for the Hospice Tree will be on sale next week for a $15 suggested donation. For more information or to purchase a star, call 5638820 or visit hospiceofsantabarbara.org.

Myrtle (Robertson) Swinford 7/12/1920 - 11/22/2013
Myrtle Swinford was born in Los Angeles, Calif., to Arthur and Eula Robertson on July 12, 1920. She passed away on Nov. 22, 2013, at Aegis Assisted Living in Ventura. She is now with her beloved husband of 61 years, Robert M. Swinford Jr., who preceded her in death in 2002. To mark the significance of her birth, Los Angeles experienced an earthquake that evening, causing her father to travel back to Los Angeles French Hospital by streetcar to check on mom and new baby. Myrtle, who was the eldest of four children, had three brothers: Waymond, Neal and Cecil. She grew up in East Los Angeles, attending Ford Boulevard Elementary School and graduated from Garfield High School in the Class of winter 1938. She met the love of her life, Robert, on a blind date and they were married on Aug. 30, 1941. After high school she worked at Sears Roebuck on Olympic Boulevard and then became a stay at home mom after the birth of her two sons, Robert and James. The family moved to the San Fernando Valley in 1952 to be closer to Robert’s work at Lockheed Aircraft. Myrtle later returned to the working world, first to Vons Markets and then as an Office Manager for the Los Angeles County Health Department in Van Nuys. She resided in Arleta until 2009 when she moved briefly to Carpinteria before residing at Aegis. After their retirements, she and Robert traveled extensively throughout the United States, including Alaska, in their motorhome and made many RV friends, especially at Death Valley and Quartzsite, Ariz., where they went many times. Myrtle was preceded in death by brothers Waymond and Cecil and is survived by her brother Neal and his companion Billi Saucier of Carpinteria, as well as her son Robert of Wrightwood and son James and his wife, Donna, of Carpinteria and four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson. Funeral services will be at the Oakwood Cemetery Chapel in Chatsworth on Nov. 30, at 10 a.m. with graveside services to follow.

In Loving Memory of Howard A. Semler July 2, 1923 to November 20, 2013
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, who abides in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence; he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. Psalms 91 1:4
On behalf of the Carpinteria Valley Arts Council, I want to thank the community of Carpinteria for its patience as the exciting new site improvements unfold at the Carpinteria Arts Center. Our beloved pergola structure has come down, and four new colorful sails will be going up shortly. Our rusted chain link fence has been removed and a clean, architecturally pleasing one is going up. Finally, the asphalt grounds are being graded and topped with a fresh new surface. As is Carpinteria custom, generous local residents are making these improvements possible. We refer to these donors as Angels of the Arts. Charles Lo Bue has a dedication and passion for supporting and promoting all the arts in Carpinteria and is our primary donor for these site improvements, for which we are grateful. As the next chapter begins to unfold for the Carpinteria Arts Center, we’d like to know what kinds of art related events and programs you’d like to see at your arts center? This is, after all, your center, and we want to hear what’s on your mind. There have been suggestions about having more senior citizen art classes, perhaps art classes for those with disabilities, maybe art programs for at-risk kids or perhaps more art camps for children? Let our new Executive Director Sherri Frazer know what you’re thinking—her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org—or peek your head in the gallery when we’re re-opened. Thank you for all your support as members, donors, artists and lovers of the arts. We live in a magical community with incredibly diverse and gifted artists. Let’s celebrate them all, knowing that art changes lives.

December is around the corner and with it, the holiday season. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukkah or Solstice, the dark days of winter include celebrations helping to bring light and families together. Often, with these celebrations, gifts of love and friendship are exchanged. As a merchant in Carpinteria, one of the few left standing after a long and arduous recession, I want to remind Carpinterians to step up and shop locally for those gifts. I hear from visitors to our city about how special Carpinteria is: the small town friendliness, the beaches and the town’s uniqueness. One of the many factors in making Carpinteria unique is its merchants. Who can imagine Carpinteria without Robataille’s Candies? Where would you go to find sandals if Rincon Designs or A-Frame Surf Shop were not here? Quick children’s birthday party gift needed? Now that Curious Cup and Carpinteria Toy Co. have merged, there is your answer. Got pets? See Jack at The Ark or one of the other pet stores we are lucky to have in our town. These are the stores that help make Carpinteria Carpinteria. Help us be here. Support us with your gift giving monies. We in turn will support Carpinteria through our continued donations to the nonprofits that also make Carpinteria special. We will support Carpinteria by hiring locals to work and earn decent wages. We will support Carpinteria with our tax monies returned to you in the form of city services. We will support Carpinteria through better customer service because we see you every day in our local lives. We will sup-
port Carpinteria by helping you buy only what you love, not what some big box store has overstock in and is telling you that you need. Small Business Saturday is this Saturday, Nov. 30. Come shopping then and whenever you can. Let’s support each other and continue to make Carpinteria a special community.

Water rate fix falls flat
Regarding “Money down the drain,” CVN, Nov. 21, the letter writer wanted to know why water bills were so unfairly high for low water users. To review, for the past 17 years, I have tried to persuade the Carpinteria Valley Water District Board of Directors with a series of water rate changes to make the rates fair to the low water user by adjusting the State Water and Capital Improvements costs and to sell water in exact proportion to usage. My final proposal was submitted to the board on Jan. 16, 2011 but not acted upon by them. However, on April 18, 2013, I resubmitted it to the board Rates and Budget Committee. Then I presented it in person at the June 5, 2013, public hearing at Carpinteria City Hall. (A copy of that presentation can be obtained at the CVWD office.) On Aug. 14, I received the board’s response to my proposal stating that it “was not a good fit for the district,” and they rejected the proposal. Over the years prior, I have also submitted letters on this subject that were published in CVN, dated as follows: Feb. 10, 2005; Aug. 25, 2005; Nov. 10, 2011; Oct. 11, 2012; June 13, 2013; Oct. 3, 2013.

Say “no” to in-flight cell phones
Picture this: You are on an airplane at 30,000 feet, stuck in a “smaller than your buttocks and/or legs” seat, exhausted from the trip preparation and contemplating your destination. You want to doze, read or, god forbid, think. Not so. The woman next to you is talking, whining, yammering, laughing into her melded-tothe-fist dreaded cell phone. “How much toilet paper should I pick up, honey,” and “What about Dustin’s head lice?” The seats are too small to whack the heck out of her, and then what, a federal offense and prison? Whatever the outcome, I am physically stuck and seething at her for the next five hours. A scenario I cannot fathom. You? Businessmen: I do not care about your big deal. What can be the emergency? Surgeons, are you operating at 30,000 feet? So why? Oh yes, silly me, the enormous profits for the airlines and wireless lobbies. Now you can pay a charge to sit in a “quiet section;” I see that coming. Remember how well the smoking section worked? (Many years ago I flew directly to Brazil from LAX on a totally smoking flight. I have no lungs now.) Please write to the FCC and register, in writing or even via your cell phone, your shock and awe at this beyond insane idea: Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th street SW, Washington, D.C., 20554; or call (888) 225-5322. It wouldn’t hurt to blast off a letter to the airlines of your choice either. We who can still hear, thank you.

CFS raises funds through Jog-a-thon
Carpinteria Family School students were fueled by ample sunshine during the 11th Annual Jog-a-thon at El Carro Park on Nov. 1. Students circled the track to the cheers of parents and friends and the rhythm of African drums. For their completion of a combined 1,178 laps, the students were rewarded with a picnic lunch and popsicles in the park.

Carpinteria girl gives back
When Elsa Young turned 10 on oct. 28, she received the best birthday present ever, the gift of giving. in lieu of toys, books and clothing for herself, Young asked her loved ones to make donations to Destined for Grace, a local nonprofit that operates an elementary school in the impoverished nation of Haiti. Young reported that she felt as though her “heart grew two sizes bigger” when she learned that $450 had been contributed in her name to improve the lives of children in need. “our friends and family responded enthusiastically and generously,” she said of her birthday request. “i had set a goal of $125 to be able to sponsor one child for a year. When we counted up the donations, i was very excited to see that i had enough to sponsor three children and then some!” SubmittED PHoto Young decided to dedicate her special day Elsa Young has much to the nonprofit when she and her mother to be thankful for this were planning her birthday party. When the Thanksgiving, and at least subject of gifts came up, Young realized that four Haitian children can be she had plenty while so many other people thankful for Elsa. lack basic necessities. She decided to donate to Destined for Grace because she feels a connection to the children of Haiti. “the reason i feel connected with them is because i am a child too,” she said. “i had no words when i heard what this sweet little girl was doing,” said Rebecca Smith, co-founder of Destined for Grace. “An act of such generosity is hard to come by these days. to be so aware of others in need at such a young age is truly incredible and inspiring.” ––CVN Report

Aliso students learn creepy-crawly science
Aliso School students combined lessons on career choices with the science of insects when entomologist Brian Cabrera visited Alyssa Taylor’s fifth-grade classroom on Nov. 22. Cabrera, an entomologist at the Santa barbara County Agricultural Commissioner’s Office, told the students of the winding educational road that led to his career in entomology. “At Aliso School, we are continuing our effort to increase our students’ knowledge about different career and university choices,” commented Principal Holly minear on the special guest. the students were interested in tying the expert’s experience into their recent lessons on bugs. there was a lively discussion about a banana spider found in the Carpinteria High School cafeteria. Dr. Cabrera also discussed malaria, which the students have been studying as they read the book “the Cay.”

Giving thanks is good for you
In addition to gathering with friends and family to enjoy a wonderful meal, Thanksgiving is an obvious opportunity to stop and count your blessings. This holiday season may be a good time to consider starting a more regular gratitude practice; a growing body of research suggests that the benefits of being grateful are significant. Robert Emmons, a psychology professor at the University of California Davis, has done groundbreaking research for many years to show that being thankful positively affects just about every aspect of wellbeing. One study showed that people who counted their blessings at bedtime slept more soundly and felt more rested than those who reviewed the events of the day before going to sleep. Keeping a gratitude journal has been associated with being more optimistic about the future, experiencing fewer symptoms of physical illness, exercising more regularly, feeling closer to others, being seen as more helpful by others and feeling emotionally stronger and more enthusiastic about life. Regularly practicing gratitude leads to lower incidence of depression and anxiety, being less materialistic and having a broader view of options when faced with a challenge. The science is quite clear; gratitude is one of the most effective strategies for increasing and sustaining overall happiness. But wait, there’s more. Gratitude has a powerfully positive impact on human relationships; marriages where gratitude is regularly expressed are much more likely to last than others. Gratitude increases hormones associated with relaxation and decreases those associated with stress. Gratitude is good for your health. In one study, heart attack patients who blamed others for their troubles were much more likely to have a second attack than were people who had become more appreciative of those around them as a result of their illness. Gratitude is also associated with increases in antibodies that indicate the health of the immune system and neurotransmitters in the brain that reduce the intensity of pain. There are some parameters to keep in mind when incorporating gratitude into your life. Reflexively saying thank you is not the same as practicing being
grateful. The key is the feeling—the intent and the sincerity. The more present and deliberate you are, the more effective it will be. If you are simply going through the motions without taking the time to experience the gratitude internally, then you will not get the full benefit. Some effective ways to practice gratitude include the following: • Keep a gratitude journal where you record those things in life you count as blessings. Keep your list of items sincere, fresh and varied. • Write a letter expressing thanks to someone and send it to him or her—better still, deliver it and read it in person. • Make a mental list of how many people you count on every day to make your life work. People all over the world are working so that you can have food, transportation, clothing, shelter, etc. • Regularly practice gratitude for the fact of your existence. Even if you do not follow a particular religious tradition, you can be grateful that you get to experience the phenomenon of conscious life. • Reframe unwanted situations as opportunities to be more accepting, more patient, more humble and more appreciative of the moments that do turn out the way you hope.

A man tracked down for raising an allegedly alcohol-fueled ruckus on Maple Avenue on Nov. 16 was found busy in his parked vehicle at 1 a.m. A deputy investigated reports of the man, 61, yelling and hitting the car with his hands and located him quickly. When the deputy opened the car door he smelled a strong odor of alcohol before noticing the subject was pants-less and pleasuring himself. The deputy also noticed a urine puddle on the pavement outside the vehicle. When deputies attempted to remove the man from the vehicle, he clenched the wheel. Nonetheless, they were able to pry him out and arrest him for public intoxication.
The Hawaiian connection
A man reporting a stolen painting said the $7,500 Hawaiian artwork had vanished while he was on a three-week vacation in Hawaii prior to Nov. 19. The burglary on a side street off Via Real was a mystery since the two-story “barn” where the painting was stored contained several other more valuable works and an automobile collection. The storage barn was fortified with barred windows, and there were no signs of forced entry. When the man returned to a first-floor office at the barn, he almost immediately noticed that the “Hawaiian architectural” painting by Peter Hayward was gone. Deputies noted no significant clues in the case.
burglars cut the locks and made way with loads of plant food. The manager of the third property could not figure how burglars gained entry since the gates were secure. Still, the container holding the chemicals had been pried open. Then while investigating the neighboring property, deputies saw that a hole had been cut in the fence separating the two properties. And a wheelbarrow from one of the properties was discovered at another property, suggesting the chemicals were hauled between the nursery businesses before being loaded into a vehicle and taken away.

It’s a Gift That Gives Both Ways Consider a Gift Annuity
Burglars raided the fertilizer supplies at three Via Real nurseries overnight between Nov. 12 and 13. All of the neighboring locations had locked gates to the properties and locked storage areas for the chemicals, but at two of the nurseries • • • •

let’s go! MARK BRICKLEY
Sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim rock the SB Funk Zone as the headliners of the 2013 New Noise Festival.
Video whiz music beat MARK BRICKLEY Carpinterian Larry Nimmer wears many hats. He’s the summer karaoke host at Giovanni’s and his Man On The Street column appears weekly in Coastal View News. Nimmer’s day job is ﬁlmmaking. In addition to working with private and nonproﬁt clients, his creative videos are featured on Cox Access Channel 21. Nimmer is known for his annual California Avocado Festival reel and Touring with the Candidates videos. “I thought of what creative thing could I do with our local candidates to show them in a different light,” he said of the project, which features campaigning candidates giving tours of the town. Nimmer’s lesser known talent is making music videos. After studying still photography at U.C. Berkeley, he learned ﬁlm and video production in graduate school at San Francisco State University. “I began making videos for the bands I met in SF clubs. One of the videos we did was for ’70s pop band Sparks,” he said. It accompanied the Sparks’ song “Cool Places” with guest singer Jane Widen of The Go-Gos. The video was featured on MTV and won a Billboard music award. Larry said he began visiting Carpinteria in 1971 after his family built a nearby vacation beach home. He decided to move here permanently in 1991. “We raised our two boys in the Carpinteria school system.” Nimmer taught video production at Carpinteria High School for a decade. His former student Matt Alonzo has become one of contemporary music’s top video directors. “One of my ﬁlmmaking skills is doing video re-creations for attorneys. It led to my being hired in 2005 by Michael Jackson’s defense team,” Nimmer said. He was asked to ﬁlm Jackson’s Santa Ynez Neverland residence. “The jury had seen the raid video, and his attorneys wanted to me to spend time there and capture what his home was like.” Larry said he had dreamed of visiting Jackson’s estate

after seeing it on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” “Neverland was very cool. It was a cross between a Beverly Hills Mansion and Disneyland.” After the trial ended, Nimmer produced a video entitled “The Untold Story of Neverland,” which details the estate and its controversy. The documentary is available at amazon.com. One of Nimmer’s current projects is a reality television show called “Veriti TV” he is making with an Ojai friend. It highlights society’s subcultures and how the public and nonproﬁts can support them.
Haim is SoCal’s hottest new rock act. The story gets better when you learn the band’s musical core features three sisters. Este Haim, 27, hammers the bass, Danielle Haim, 24, shreds on lead guitar, and Alana Haim, 22, plays both rhythm guitar and keyboards. Haim earned their chops from a decade playing in their parents cover band called “Rockinhaim.” The sisters ﬁrst played as a trio in 2007. Haim (rhymes with mime) was the headline act at Santa Barbara’s October 2013 New Noise Festival. They had the sold-out Funk Zone crowd with them from their ﬁrst power chord. Heads were bouncing to the edgy riffs and melodic hooks. The band roared through its set, which included new single “The Wire” and a rocking rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well.” BThe band’s tightly paced show was briefly halted when someone sprayed water on guitarist Alana. Haim called the idiot out, telling him he’d have to deal with their real fans. The show crested with all three sisters pounding on percussion instruments to drummer Dash Hutton’s wild rhythms. It was pure rock ‘n’ roll abandon.
Rock pioneer Lou Reed died last month at age 71. He was among music’s most fearless lyricists. This columnist heard him perform at UCSB’s Campbell Hall in 2006. He was accompanied by just two electric bassists. Reed’s guitars and electronic keyboards were wired to create soaring, spherical effects. After his fans began calling out requests, Reed quieted them, saying that he wouldn’t be playing a greatest hits show but hoped they’d enjoy some of his new songs. Reed’s set omitted “Walk On The Wild Side” but included “Sweet Jane” from The Velvet Underground’s 1970 “Loaded” album. No one went home hungry. Being in Reed’s iconic presence created an instant musical memory. See www.markbrickley.com for Brickley’s music articles and rock photography.

And as late as the 19th century, writer and gastronome Alexandre Dumas said, “I confess, that nothing frightens me more than the appearance of mushrooms on the table, especially in a small provincial town.” I’ve never hunted wild mushrooms, preferring to get them fresh at our small town farmers’ market. They are delicious when cooked properly. This recipe is simple to make, beautiful when served and, of course, delicious. The savory combination of porcini and cremini mushrooms is unique and, when paired with brandy and Gruyere cheese, superb! This tart is the perfect post-Thanksgiving meal, a collection of ﬂavors totally distinct from those on a traditional holiday table. When you don’t want to see or smell another turkey/cranberry/mashed potato sandwich, give this recipe a try. Or impress the folks around your Thanksgiving table with something a little out of the ordinary that will still pair nicely with the traditional feast components.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend ﬂour and salt in processor. Cut in butter using on/off turns until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add enough water to blend dough. Gather dough into ball. Wrap in plastic and chill for about 30 minutes. Roll out dough on ﬂoured surface to 12-inch round. Transfer to 9-inch-diameter tart pan. I use a pan with a removable bottom to make serving easier. Trim edges, leaving 1/2-inch overhang. Fold
overhang in to form double-thick sides. Press tart edges to raise dough 1/8 inch above pan. Chill while preparing ﬁlling.

Add brandy and turn heat on high. Boil until almost all liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat and mix in herbs. Set aside uncovered.
Prick crust with the tines of a fork and prebake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. Maintain oven temperature (that is, don’t turn it off). Sprinkle ½ cup cheese on prebaked crust. Cover with mushrooms. Whisk half and half, yolks and whole egg in mixing bowl. Pour over mushrooms. Top with remaining cheese. Bake until filling is set and top is golden, about 30 minutes.

wants to drop ﬁve dress sizes before her 20th high school reunion in three months. She believes that this is a perfectly reasonable goal since she sees so many commercials and TV shows like “The Biggest Loser” where weight loss appears quick and easily attainable, even if it means putting up with a berating trainer. (By the way, you will never see me raise my voice to a client. It just isn’t necessary.) Sharie decided to do it on her own. She found a homeopath who put her on a juice cleanse for three weeks. At the end of the three weeks, Sharie lost 10 pounds, but gained 20 pounds four weeks later. The moral to all of these examples is that long-term and lasting results require hard work and knowledge. You must do your research and become a relative expert in the product you are going to buy. A good place to start your research would be the FTC (Federal Trade Com-
mission) to see if there have been any consumer complaints on a given product. From there, do a thorough check on the Internet. Lastly, talk to people who have used the product. Bottom line is that ﬁtness is rarely realized from a pill, quick-ﬁx solution or a recycled workout program. But deep down, we already knew that. Real success comes from perseverance, patience, knowledge and a supportive lifestyle. Without any or all of those components, the sewers get rich and the public remains frustrated.

Warriors fall 45-31 to El Segundo Strong season ends in CIF round 2 By PEtEr Dugré
With one minute left in the third quarter, Carpinteria High School football had positioned itself for a battle to the finish by knotting the score at 31-31 on an Ian Craddock touchdown run in the highoctane battle against visiting El Segundo High School. El Segundo, the fourthseeded team heading into CIF Northwest Division playoffs, had different ideas and returned the ensuing kickoff 96 yards for a go-ahead touchdown that robbed the Warriors of momentum and eventually led to the 45-31 playoff loss on Nov. 22. “We just didn’t come through with the plays in the second half,” Warrior coach Ben Hallock said. “We needed to stay score for score.” El Segundo’s big play attack outdid the Warriors, who are no strangers to their own long touchdown strikes. In addition to the 96-yard kickoff return, El Segundo covered 71 yards on a thirdquarter touchdown pass and 53 yards on a second quarter bomb to tie the score at 10 points. Of the kickoff return team’s lapse, Hallock said, “Unfortunately, that’s one of the teams that I coach. I have to own that. I take responsibility.” The Warriors used their whole arse-
nal of offensive weapons through three quarters but could not muster a fourthquarter score. When the Warriors fell behind 24-17 after kicking the ball off at the start of the second half, Warrior Bryson Frazer wasted no time evening things up at 24-24. The senior running back took the ball up the left sideline on a second down with 18 yards to go, and after shaking loose a couple of tacklers, ended up scoring a 65-yard touchdown at the right corner of the field. Frazer’s jaunt came with 6:40 left in the third. “(Frazer) is capable of making a play on any down,” Hallock said of the dynamic senior. Frazer carried the ball 12 times for 127 yards and also caught two passes for 27 yards. The teams played to a 17-17 first half tie. Craddock kicked a 46-yard field goal early in the first quarter following an 11-play drive to open the game. The Warriors had attempted to keep the ball, sustain drives and take some flight out of the El Segundo attack. El Seguno tied the game at 3-3 with 3:46 left in the first quarter. Then the teams traded fumbles. Warrior defensive end Duncan gordon took the ball back

Warrior running back Bryson Frazer darts up the middle in a 45-31 Warrior loss to El Segundo on Nov. 22. after the Warriors were smothered and fumbled the ball while attempting to set up a screen pass. Warrior senior fullback peter Ramos plowed in a 10-yard run to give the Warriors a 10-3 advantage with 9:33 remaining in the second quarter. El Segundo slipped behind the Warrior defense for a 53-yard bomb from strong-armed quarterback lars Nootbaar to tie the game at 10-10 with 4:36 left in the second quarter. The Warriors charged down the field on eight straight run plays for 83 yards, including a 27-yard sprint by Frazer to go ahead 17-10 with one minute left in the half. Ramos ran in the 3-yard touchdown plunge. Ramos totaled nine carries for 49 yards and two touchdowns in the game.
One minute was plenty of time for Nootbaar to work. He hit for a 45-yard pass to cover much of the field and set up the 17-17 halftime tie after finishing the drive with a 5-yard touchdown. The Warriors held on to hope, trailing 45-31 with under two minutes left in the game. El Segundo set up for a punt on its own 19-yard line; however, the Eagles faked and picked up the three yards necessary to hold onto the ball and run out the clock. The contest was the final start for Craddock, who has taken most of the team’s snaps for three seasons. He ran the ball 19 times for 90 yards, was 9-of-17 passing for 128 yards and also kicked four extra points and the field goal. The Warriors finish the season 8-4. They advanced to the second round of playoffs for the first time since 2005. “We had a great season.” Hallock said. “We did all kinds of really fine stuff and our guys w e re c l a s s y through the whole season. I was really proud of them. I’m thankful they brought me along with them.”
Ian Craddock has thrown his last pass in a Warrior uniform after three seasons of running the offense.

Warrior soccer player Yhobany Elizarraraz (#10) battles for a ball in a Warriors scrimmage against Santa Barbara High School while Juan Pablo Alvarez (#29) enters the fray.
Carpinteria High School
Nov. 20 – Warrior boys soccer scrimmaged Santa Barbara High School and went ahead early but eventually relented 5-1 in the contest that will not be reﬂected in the standings. Warrior sophomore Benjie Garcia scored in the game’s third minute on free kick from 25 yards out that found the upper right hand corner of the net. The Warriors controlled play for much of the ﬁrst half but gave up an equalizer on a penalty kick in the ﬁnal minute of the ﬁrst half. The Dons turned the tide in the second half. Warrior coach Leonardo Quintero credited a team effort for competing for a majority of the scrimmage with upper-division Santa Barbara. “There are new faces all around, and it’s only a matter of time before the group puts the pieces of the puzzle together to ﬁnd success,” commented Quintero.

Cate School’s Andrew Robbins (#183) leapt off the blocks in his ﬁnal race for the Rams.
Nov. 23 – Cate School Boys Cross Country ended its season with an 11th-place ﬁnish at the CIF Finals on the Mount SAC Course. The tight race was delayed by two false starts due to runners falling in the ﬁrst 100 yards. Cate’s standout runner and co-captain Andrew Robbins led the race initially, passing the ﬁrst mile in 5 minutes, but soon lost momentum and was overtaken in mile two. Teammate and co-captain Andrew Sinclair came in ﬁrst for the Rams in 17:08 for 33rd place, and Robbins ﬁnished in 53rd place in 17:28. Rams sophomore Rei Imada (17:56, 61st) was the most improved runner for the Rams this season. The scoring was rounded out by Jack Pruitt (18:08, 67th) and freshman Dylan Ell (18:19, 77th). Edward Zhu placed sixth for Cate (18:38, 91st), and the Rams ﬁnished with Humza Khurshid (19:06, 103rd). The Rams will graduate co-captains Robbins and Sinclair. Condor League champion Thacher School ﬁnished in second place and will continue to the state championships.

voicing their opposition to the Carpinteria City Council and the community through the letters section of Coastal View News. Orchestrated by the Skate Foundation, last week’s forum aimed to get both sides of the issue in the same room for a discussion of the project. Tension mounted when a few property owners near the proposed location raised concerns for increased noise and illicit behavior accompanying the proposed skatepark. Marla Daily, a vocal opponent to the project who owns multiple properties near the site, listened to the presentation, which highlighted the community good that would come of such a project, and argued that her quality of life would be diminished by the project. “We are all stakeholders here, but some of us are larger stakeholders than others,” she said. Daily noted that Santa Barbara’s skatepark was recently plagued with problems and shutdown temporarily. The park, which opened in 2000, saw an upswing in drug use, vandalism and bullying last summer. Eduard Van Wingerden brought up problems associated with the skatepark built near the proposed site, at the Amtrak station, in the 1990s. “There is a certain culture that, I think, is what people are concerned about,” Van Wingerden said. Describing the former park’s users, he said, “A lot of the kids had the old one ﬁnger salute attitude toward law enforcement.” Members of the Skate Foundation acknowledged that the original Carpinteria skatepark was rife with problems, but they argued that the next incarnation would be vastly improved. Instead of noisy, wooden structures, the proposed skatepark would be built out of seamless cement. Issues of city liability, which had led to a cumbersome and oft-neglected system to qualify users of the former park, no longer exist due to changes to California law. The presentation by Spohn Ranch set out to answer the question, “Why the 5th Street location?” Consultant Vince Onel presented the results of a site analysis conducted by the company. Eight sites were considered for a skatepark: Memorial Park, the Verizon property on Ogan Road, El Carro Park, Thunder Bowl skate rink located at City Hall, Linden Field, Carpinteria Bluffs, the strip of land between Highway 101 and Carpinteria Avenue at Bailard Avenue, and 5th Street. Spohn Ranch recommended the 5 th Street location over the others given the property’s high visibility, accessible downtown location, city ownership, nearby parking and restrooms, great design canvas and its current under-
utilized state. The biggest barrier to the site, the consultants concluded, would be obtaining neighbor consent due to the property’s close proximity to residences. Linden Field ranked second, having scored well in all the criteria except site acquisition. Owned by the California State Parks System, the property is considered highly difﬁcult to acquire. Thunder Bowl Skate Rink has entered community dialogue over and over as an alternative to the controversial 5th Street site. Spohn Ranch, however, deemed the site a less viable option due to several factors: its location outside of the city center, its lack of amenities and a potential conﬂicting future use. City Parks and Recreation Director Matt Roberts clariﬁed that the city has earmarked the property for a future Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department substation and city emergency operations center. Visibility of a skatepark has a big inﬂuence on its success, Spohn Ranch founder Aaron Spohn asserted. “The parks that do have issues are the ones that are tucked away out of sight,” he said. Carpinteria Architectural Review Board member John Moyer said that several people have asked him why the city hasn’t focused on Thunder Bowl for the skatepark. “I ask them, ‘Why not put it in Boise, Idaho?’” he said. By providing a downtown location for a skatepark, “It says to our kids, ‘We have a place for you, and you belong here,’” Moyer concluded. Skateboarders who feel accepted by the community and involved in the development of a park are given a sense of ownership, Spohn said, and are more likely to be park stewards than to cause problems. Carpinteria skateboarder, father and business owner Shawn Glasgow urged the standing room only crowd to consider how it felt to be an outcast skater as a teen. He is currently teaching his children to skateboard, he said, and hopes that they can feel embraced by their community for their involvement in the sport. Forum attendance was dominated by skatepark supporters, but several members of the community said they were still forming opinions and asked questions to obtain a better understanding of what was proposed. Skate Foundation members made it clear that the existing design is conceptual only. Elements they emphasized were the rows of soundblocking trees along 5th Street and the railroad tracks and terraced community garden plots positioned as another sound buffer between the skating and the residential street. The next step in the process will be to reﬁne the design and create a three dimensional model. Supporters were encouraged to contact their councilmembers to advocate for the project.

Middle schoolers win Lions Poster Contest
Carpinteria middle School students Alejandro Cisneros and Alina Villareal have taken the first step toward international recognition by winning a local art competition sponsored by the Carpinteria Lions Club. Cisneros’ and Villareal’s posters were among more than 450,000 entries submitted worldwide in the annual Lions International peace poster Contest, a program that emphasizes the importance of world peace to young people. “World peace is necessary in order for our future generations to survive,” said 13-year-old Cisneros. “i would like to see world peace in the future and less violence,” sixth-grader Villareal stated. their posters were selected by a panel of judges from the Carpinteria Lions Club, who considered originality, artistic merit and portrayal of the contest theme, “our World, our Future.” Carpinteria Lions Club president Jeff moorhouse said he was impressed by the expression and creativity of all the local participants. “it is obvious that these young people have strong ideas about what peace means to them. i’m so proud that we were able to provide them with the opportunity to share their visions.” ultimately an international grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners will be selected from among all the entries.

Gifts from the garden garden gossip CHRIS & LISA CULLEN With the holiday season in full swing, it’s time to think about gift giving. We belong to the school of thought that believes in giving items that people will use, in other words, consumables. Over the years we have had fun making gifts and thought we’d pass along some ideas that will hopefully inspire some of your own creative projects.
Homemade herbed salt is easy to make, and when packed in a small decorative jars, it makes a wonderful gift. We pick herbs from the garden, dry them and toss them with sea salt. This was such a popular gift that friends asked for more when they ran out. You can create a custom mix or just do what we did and put in a bit of everything you have on hand. The key is to dry the herbs beforehand. If you need to speed the process along put them in a very low oven (150 degrees) until thoroughly dried. Below is the mix we make; it changes every year depending on what we have. You can use anything you find in your garden or farmers market, whatever suits your taste. We always keep a container of
this on hand, adding more herbs and sea salt when it gets low. Use it on popcorn, eggs, in soups, stews or anything else that could use a bit of extra zip. Lisa’s mix: Fennel seed, thyme, lavender flowers, bay, oregano, basil, marjoram and, of course, sea salt. Citrus salt or pepper: Take zest of lemon or a variety of citrus dry it and add to sea salt or pepper. The oils permeate the salt and pepper as they sit together. Yum!
You may want to create your own custom herb or spice blend. There are the classics like Herbs de Provence, or you can make up one of your own design using your favorite herbs and spices. Herbs de Provence: Thyme, fennel seed, lavender, savory, basil. Asian-style spice blend: Fennel seed, cinnamon, star anise, clove, ginger, pepper. Spanish blend: Sweet and/or smoked paprika, pepper, cumin, oregano, parsley, thyme and lemon zest.
Homemade chai tea
Jazz up black tea with a variety of spices and citrus peels. For non-caffeine drinkers in your life, just leave out the tea. Here is a recipe for chai. Don’t feel constrained by the proportions; use it as a base to create your own blend. Important
note: thoroughly dry the ginger (if using fresh) and citrus peel before adding or you’ll get a moldy mess.
Zest of 4 lemons/oranges, ¼ cup diced fresh (or candied) ginger 2 teaspoons peppercorns 24 green cardamom pods 1 teaspoon whole cloves 8 inches cinnamon stick 1 teaspoons coriander seeds 2 Tablespoons fennel seeds 5 whole star anise 6 whole allspice 1 cup black tea
Dry zest and diced ginger in low oven (150 degrees) until fully dehydrated. Toast remaining ingredients, except tea, in 325-degree oven until fragrant. Crush slightly and toss with tea and dried citrus peel and ginger. Pack in half-pint jars and give to your special friends.
Spread the wealth of your garden
• My cousin from Utah sent us a large envelope of hollyhock seeds from her garden. What a treat that was. When they bloom, we think of her. Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving! • Another year, we had a bumper crop of Christmas lima and cannellini beans
and gave them as gifts to friends and family. Recently, I had to ask my mother for some of hers because we had failed to save enough from last year’s harvest. I love it when things come back around. • Last year someone divided their bearded iris and gave us a box of them as a gift. This would work well with orchids too. • Harvest lavender buds for sachets and use lavender and other garden herbs to make beautiful and unusual gift-wrapping (see photo). • If you have succulents, you probably have the makings of many potted succulent gardens. • I’m sure you can think of other creative ways to spread the wealth of your garden. Hopefully, we have jogged your imagination a bit to get you on your way to a fun (and creative) gift-giving season. Until next time, fill your garden with joy! ––Lisa and Chris Cullen Chris and Lisa Cullen, owners of Montecito Landscape, have been creating beautiful gardens for over 40 years.

Pelican whisperer CHUCK GRAHAM
unpredictable wilderness The four Taiwanese girls had never seen anything like it, and to be honest, it was a ﬁrst for me as well. I’m around California brown pelicans a lot, and I know juvenile brown pelicans can have a difﬁcult time adjusting to life away from the security of their mothers and the nest. When it comes time to strike out on their own, it involves learning how to ﬂy and diving to catch food on their own. Whenever I see juveniles sitting on the water plunging their scissor-like beaks into the ocean, I know they haven’t perfected the art of soaring and diving for pouches full of ﬁsh. A lot of juveniles become disoriented, exhausted and starve. If they aren’t fortunate enough to reach rehabilitation centers up and down the coast, they may succumb to nature’s brutal reality. On the other hand, some are just plain curious as they’re growing up. Late last spring, I was leading a kayak tour to Potato Harbor on Santa Cruz Island. I was leading four Taiwanese girls from the East Coast, who happened to be competent paddlers, on the 6-mile roundtrip kayak tour. Potato Harbor is an idyllic natural anchorage near the southeast end of the largest isle off the California coast. Its entrance is a haven for hundreds of California sea lions, Brandt’s cormorants, black oystercatchers, seasonal elegant terns and year-round brown pelicans. Occasionally I’ll catch a glimpse of a peregrine falcon soaring overhead. The rear of Potato Harbor has a small beach when
A juvenile California brown pelican casts a sidelong glance at Chuck Graham from his rocky perch. the tide is low enough, and a natural oil seep oozes from beneath the swath of cobble and driftwood crammed in the rear of the cove. Years ago, guides scavenged some driftwood planks and constructed a sturdy, 7-foot-long bench wedged into a rocky knoll overlooking Potato Harbor. It’s a nice, convenient lunch stop after a long paddle. On this day, the four Taiwanese girls and I were the only ones there. Perched on the driftwood bench for lunch, I was fielding a bombardment of questions about the Channel Islands National Park, answering the best I could about the natural history surrounding the volcanic archipelago.
As far as I can remember, they hadn’t stumped me just yet, and that’s when the juvenile brown pelican swooped in and landed on the plank we use as a table about 18 inches across from us. Try to imagine all the Taiwanese superlatives I heard as the pelican landed, its 7-footwide wingspan outstretched before us. Initially, the four girls were afraid of the pterodactyl-like seabird, and they clambered behind me and one another waiting for it to attack. Brown pelicans, however, are very docile. I’ve rescued several on the beach, and only once one cut me with the spur at the end of its long beak. This one only seemed curious. To quell their fears, I got up and sat right next to the pelican. It didn’t move an inch. In-
stead I began stroking its chest and then its broad wings. Finally, I began scratching the back of its fuzzy head. It slowly closed its eyes, its head fell back and it took a siesta. Needless to say, the Taiwanese girls were quite impressed—they took pictures and even ﬁlmed the spectacle. Eventually, the juvenile brown pelican came out of its sleepy island trance and ﬂew off toward the entrance of Potato Harbor, choosing to roost on a knobby sea stack. Apparently, it had grown bored with us and longed to socialize with seabirds of the same feather.

Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful
Tallula the French mastiff would like CVN readers to know that behind her intimidating size and slobbery mug lies a heart of gold. The big softie goes by several nicknames; Talu and Squishy are regulars, but the one she hears the most is “No.” In her submission to the newspaper, Tallula reported that she loves being at home with her ﬁve humans, two dogs, two cats and a parrot. At her favorite beach, Santa Claus Lane, Tallula enjoys stretching out on the warm sand and army crawling around on her belly. At El Carro Park, she is known to chase balls with all her might. That lasts about four minutes, and then she’s ready to go home and lay on a couch until her human calls her “No” very loudly.
on the road CVN has Huskies connection
Anna Goodmanson and Amanda and Frank Macias witnessed the University of Washington Huskies football team handle the University of California Bears 41-17 at Washington. The three Carpinterias, however, supported the Huskies since their cousin Steve Murillo coaches the team. On the ﬁeld and around Seattle, the travelers were treated like football royalty when receiving VIP treatment while ﬂashing their CVN.

Franklin Trail blazes new CVN territory
Long before the ofﬁcial opening of Franklin Trail, a band of trail volunteers carried CVN to its farthest permissible point while surveying the work in progress last July. While the fence remains across the Edison Trail about 2 miles up, Carpinteria’s connection to the front country is open for hikers. Pete Flynn, who held the CVN for the photo op, said, “Go hike it!”
