Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

briefly City purchases south-side railroad property

The City of Carpinteria closed escrow last week on a 1.44-acre parcel of land located between Linden and Holly avenues immediately south of the railroad tracks. Designated by the City’s General Plan for recreation and open space uses, the $770,000 property was paid for with city funds specified for park and open space acquisitions. According to Parks and Recreation Director Matt Roberts, the city intends to initiate a public process to determine the ultimate use of the property that could include outdoor recreational facilities, parking, trails or area beautification.

Coastal Commission seeks king tide photos

www.coastalview.com

Beginning on Monday, Dec. 30, some of the year’s highest tides will hit California shorelines, providing a glimpse of what the state can expect as sea-level rises. Ultrahigh or “king tides” will occur Dec. 30 through Jan. 2 and Jan. 29 through 31. The California King Tides Initiative, a program of the California Coastal Commission now in its fourth season, encourages the public to view and photograph ultra-high tides and add to a growing collection of photos at flickr.com/groups/cakingtides. Carpinteria areas of interest are Padaro Lane and the Carpinteria Salt Marsh. Initiative organizers aim to help the public envision how California may be affected by sea-level rise. “Many of our beaches, trails, wetlands, roadways, and critical infrastructure become flooded during king tides, illustrating the severity and scope of potential sea-level rise impacts. Significant economic impacts underscore the need to start planning for sea level rise in California now,” says Susan Hansch, Chief Deputy Director at the California Coastal Commission. More information is available at coastal.ca.gov.

Lake Cachuma is Carpinteria Valley Water District’s most important source of water supply. The district normally depends on Lake Cachuma for as much as 75 percent of the water delivered each year to customers in the Carpinteria Valley. Overall storage in the lake has now dropped down to the 40 percent range. And rainfall in the lake area this year is less than 45 percent of normal. With about 75 percent of California’s average rainfall falling during the months of November through March, there still remains some hope for more, but so far no optimistic predictions are forecast. Faced with this very serious prospect of very low storage in Lake Cachuma, water managers of Santa Ynez ID#1, Goleta Water District, the City of Santa Barbara, Montecito Water District and Carpinteria Valley Water District, the five Cachuma Project member agencies, are meeting together with Tom Fayram, Deputy Public Works Director of the County Public Works Department, Water Resources Division, to consider actions and steps to preserve and maximize the lake’s yield.

Major challenges include the following:

• Pumping water from lower levels of the lake to the level of elevation needed for water to flow through the Tecolote Tunnel to the south coast, including Carpinteria Valley. • Ensuring the flow of imported State Water from where it enters the lake at the dam to the North Portal where it leaves the lake into the Tecolote Tunnel, a distance of about two miles. • Reducing withdrawals by Cachuma member agencies from the lake to contribute to the lake’s preservation. Already the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board has authorized the creation of a drought contingency reserve fund of $300,000 to cover necessary planning, design and engineering

When I told you my father had just died and I was going to my mom’s, you answered, ‘Can’t verify that.’”

This was written by Anita Cawley, yoga teacher and former owner of The Studio in Santa Barbara. Anita now resides and teaches yoga in Hawaii. With her permission, I share this wisdom.

Why Practice Yoga?

I don’t practice yoga because I am good or disciplined, far from it. I don’t practice because I am righteous or virtuous. I certainly don’t practice because I am perfect or peaceful. Nor do I practice to impress anyone, or to prove some inane point about my wonderful, brilliant, sparkly shininess. I practice because without practice I am a mess. I practice because it helps me see myself more clearly and it gives me the push I need to try harder and to love more.

ADVERTISEMENT Oh Holy St. Jude, apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in Miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful special patron in time of need, to you do I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg you to whom God has given such great powers, to come to my assistance. Help me in my present urgent petition. In return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. Pray for us all who invoke your aid.

secutive days. This Novena has never been known to fail.

I practice because it makes me feel incredibly strong and pathetically weak—at the same time. My practice shows me how powerful I am and how completely powerless I am in the grand scheme of things. I practice because if I don’t, I’m even more reactive and distracted—and that’s not cool. I practice because I never want to stop learning or stop growing. I practice because it helps me learn when to forge ahead and when to surrender. I practice because it puts things in perspective and gives me a sense of humor and a sense of gravity. I practice because I don’t want to sleepwalk through my life without an authentic relationship with myself and my soul.

living mindfully DAVE MOCHEL

The three enemies of resolutions

sumes that you have survived because of how you have done things in the past. Therefore, when you try to do things differently, it uses compelling thoughts and urges to prompt you to return to old behavior. Or, even more cleverly, your brain just forgets your new plan altogether. In review, three keys to success when it comes to resolutions: highly specific plans, plenty of concrete reminders and the acceptance of discomfort as part of the process. And one more thing—when you become aware of a lapse in your new routine, be prepared for your brain to tell you to just give up. One of the best things you can do for your own growth and selfconfidence is to smile, take a breath and simply begin your new practice again in that moment. Dave Mochel has taught classes in neuroscience, wellbeing and leadership for 25 years. He works with individuals, schools and businesses to help them focus their attention and energy to enhance performance, reduce stress and maximize quality of life. You can reach him at dave@appliedattention.com, and you can follow his blog at www.appliedattention. com.

Two laptop computers bought by a dad for his children went missing overnight on Dec. 18 on Golden Gate Avenue in Summerland. The father had purchased the computers for $270 each and stored them in a travel trailer to hide them from the children. He last had seen them on the afternoon of Dec. 17. At 3 a.m. on Dec. 18, he heard some rustling outside, but it quickly subsided so he dismissed the noise as animals. At 9 a.m., he exited the home and noticed the door ajar to the travel trailer. The gifts were gone.

Hearse ride

A taxi driver reported to deputies that his passenger was comatose in the backseat on Bailard Avenue at 12:06 a.m. on Dec. 14. The driver had arrived where the passenger asked him to drive to, but the passenger was out cold. Deputies could not wake the man, 27. Paramedics were able to wrest him from his deep slumber, but he could not iterate where he lived— even though he was parked outside the complex where he’d asked the driver to transport him. Deputies arrested him for public intoxication.

Deputies following up on a hit-andrun investigation on Vallecito Place instead found a shifty man with a warrant for his arrest on Dec. 13. At first, deputies sought a woman in the house, 29, who was involved in a hit-and-run in some way not noted in the report. As part of the investigation, she needed to get keys to a vehicle, but the deputy became suspicious when she re-entered the home and did not come out for over 10 minutes. Deputies were familiar with a man in the house, 32, who often found himself in the bull’s eye of law enforcement. The deputy used the time to run the man’s record and find he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. The deputy suspected the woman was biding time inside to allow the man to escape out a back door, so he called backup officers to assist him in making the arrest. The woman returned outside, and when asked, told deputies the wanted man was in the garage. The deputy announced his presence outside the garage and heard rustling inside but got no answer. The deputy stood at a side door and warned he’d kick it in, but still got no answer. Then the hiding man’s father came out from the front door of the home and had a key to the garage. He said he hadn’t seen his son that day. After five minutes passed, the deputies warned the father and homeowner that they were going to get into the garage one way or another. He unlocked the door. Inside, deputies noticed an attic door open and a foot and jeans visible through the opening. Deputies called for the man to come down, but he said no, and that he had cancer. Eventually he came down and was arrested for the warrant and resisting arrest.

COUNTY

New Year’s Eve is right around the corner, and it is likely that many of us will be making resolutions to get in better shape, eat more healthily, become more organized, save more money, live a more balanced life, etc. The sobering reality is that the overwhelming majority of these well-intentioned plans will not come to fruition. This is because human beings are creatures of habit. The failure of attempts at change does not stem from a lack of good advice. There are literally thousands of self-help books and seminars available. Each year in this country, well over $100 billion is spent on self-improvement in some form. While you have an overabundance of options to choose from, almost any sensible workout, eating plan, organizational scheme, savings program, or stress reduction strategy would work—if you chose one and stuck with it. The first reason that most resolutions fail is that we are not specific enough about what we are trying to accomplish and how we will carry out our plans. We tend to set vague, overly optimistic targets and then hope that the goals themselves will motivate us to behave differently than we have in the past. Being very clear about exactly what you will do and when you will do it is one of the keys to successful change. The second reason we stray away from our resolutions is that we do not provide ourselves with enough concrete reminders. When you are changing behavior, you cannot have too many reminders in your life. Notes, alarms, apps and partners can all be very helpful. In addition, removing reminders and temptations related to the old behavior can go a long way toward success. The final reason that resolutions fade is that we believe we will be as excited about our resolution in the future as we are today. We are not realistic about fatigue, boredom, restlessness, frustration or the many impulses that visit us regularly. We fail to anticipate the power of the urge to avoid the workout or indulge in sweets when the time comes. Discomfort is part of changing behavior—you ignore this at your own peril. The bottom line is that your brain would rather that you do things the way you always have. It takes less energy to carry out habitual behavior than it does to do things consciously. Your brain as-

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

let’s go! The late, great Johnny Cash lived in Casitas Springs in the early 1960s, and his former presence is now commemorated with a roadside billboard.

Sign o’ the times music beat MARK BRICKLEY From 1961 until 1965 Johnny Cash lived 22 miles from Carpinteria in Casitas Springs. Earlier this year an oversized sign appeared at the town’s portal welcoming visitors to Johnny’s former abode. Its three large photographs include a reproduction of the 2013 US postage stamp issued in Cash’s honor. Calling Casitas Springs a town is a generous description. If you change radio stations, you might miss it. Locals seem bemused when their pocket-sized village is described as “the gateway to the Ojai Valley.” Its only visible businesses include a welding shop, Sherlock’s Antique Lighting, a general store that sells live bait and California Auctions & Appraisers. The clerk at the local beer stop said auctioneer John Eubanks and his son Jewells had designed and installed the new Johnny Cash tribute sign. “We’ve known Johnny’s daughter Cindy a long time and got her permission to put the sign up. We wanted to create an attractive roadside area to commemorate Cash’s legacy,” John said. He said that Johnny used to take his daughters down to the Ventura River to pan for gold. “In the 1960s there were five bars in Casitas Springs including the Loading Chute and Okies Tavern. That’s where singers like Waylon Jennings and Bob Dylan used to hang out with Johnny,” John recalled. It turns out Cash’s former house was hiding in plain sight. I spied the tall cypress trees that front Johnny’s place high on the hillside on the right side of town. Cash moved his parents from Arkansas to Casitas Springs in 1960 before his wife and four daughters settled in. His mom and dad managed a local mobile home park Cash bought and re-named “The Johnny Cash Trailer Rancho.” Cash designed every inch of his new custom built home. A long driveway led up the hill to the spacious single story estate. There was an oversize aquarium in the huge living room and the master bedroom’s high ceiling sparkled with twinkling stars. Not much has changed since Cash left

Casitas Springs 48 years ago. Still, there’s something pleasantly authentic about the small, throwback oil town. Maybe that’s what attracted Cash to it so many years ago.

First Day Hikers will get this bird’s eye view of Carpinteria Valley.

New biography

…take a hike

Former LA Times pop critic Robert Hilburn has penned a new bestselling biography entitled “Johnny Cash: A Life.” The book is excruciatingly honest. The author said daughter Rosanne Cash contributed family stories to the book, saying, “If it’s true, so be it.” Hilburn’s narration begins in Cash’s hometown of Dice, Ark. He skillfully traces how Johnny’s early life and gospel roots contributed to his artistry. Hilburn believes that Cash’s music had a purpose. “He wanted to uplift his listeners’ spirits and give them hope. Johnny felt both he and his audience could be redeemed. That’s how he saw his music.” Hilburn was the only member of the press who attended Cash’s historic 1968 concert at Folsom Prison. The live album recorded that day propelled Cash from a country star into a musical icon. Ironically, Cash was sued for copyright infringement for his hit song “Folsom Prison Blues.” He wrote the song after seeing a movie about Folsom Prison when he was stationed with the U.S. Air Force in Germany. It was later determined that Cash used some of the lyrics and melody from Gordon Jenkins song “Crescent City Blues” as his template. He paid $75,000 to the original songwriter to settle the case.

Holiday music quiz Q: Which number one Billboard Hot 100 hit was adapted from the King James Bible’s Book of Ecclesiastes 3:1? A: The Byrds 1965 song “Turn! Turn! Turn!” It was written by folksinger Pete Seeger and first recorded by The Limeliters in 1962 under the title “To Everything There Is a Season,” which is the song’s first line. The tune’s lyrics are historically attributed to King Solomon, a prophet of the Old Testament who reigned from 970931 BC. The Byrds added the title “Turn! Turn! Turn!” which repeats throughout the song but is not part of the Ecclesiastes text.

The California State Parks system turns 150 in 2014, and to commemorate the big birthday, several First Day Hikes are planned across the state for Wednesday, Jan. 1. Carpinteria State Beach is among the 31 parks that will host a hike to launch the new year. The local 8-mile roundtrip hike, dubbed “Ocean To The Mountain,” starts at the beach-end of Linden Avenue at 9 a.m. and proceeds to the top of the first phase of Franklin Trail. Anyone who wants to begin at the start of Franklin Trail can meet up with the group at about 9:30 a.m. Day use parking at Carpinteria State Beach will be free for hikers.

…ring in the new year

Local anticipation for 2014 will culminate in New Year’s Eve festivities throughout Carpinteria. Anyone in search of a spot to sip champagne, kiss another pair of lips and revel in the possibility of a whole new year can watch the 2013 turn to 2014 without leaving the 93013. The evening can begin with multi-course meals at Corktree, 910 Linden Ave., or The Shoals Island Grill, where a DJ will spin 1960s tunes. The Palms, at 701 Linden Ave., will throw its annual New Year’s Eve bash with live music by Red Fish, a toast at midnight and party favors. The festivities can continue into 2014 with a New Year’s Day Hair of the Dog Party at Carpinteria & Linden Pub, 4954 Carpinteria Ave. The pub will open at noon and host a tie dye contest and live music by Grooveshine.

…to a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious movie

9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Featuring our popular Eggs Benedict & so much more!

Beginners guide to great eggplant parm chef randy RANDY GRAHAM When I served this eggplant dish the other night, our friends asked, “What’s the difference between Parmesan and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese?” I replied by saying, “Well, they’re kinda the same thing but different.” Looking perplexed, Lol asked, “How can they be the same thing yet different?” It’s no wonder that he’s a successful trial attorney. This is what I told our dinner guests while they ate with gusto. Parmigiano is an alternative and more authentic spelling for Parmesan, but it is much more than that. Parmigiano refers to the province of Parma where the production of Parmigiano cheeses are strictly controlled by Italian law. In 1934, cheese producers in both the Parma and Reggio-Emilia provinces joined forces with producers in the Modena and Mantua provinces to form an association called the Consorzio del Grana Tipico. Cheese producers from the province of Bologna later joined the group. In 1954, they renamed their group the Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano. Hence the name Parmigiano-Reggiano. My eggplant recipe features properly cooked, but not squishy, rounds of eggplant with a crisp crust, authentic Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and an aromatic tomato sauce. It is melt-in-yourmouth good. No more need be said.

Eggplant parmigianoreggiano Ingredients

3 medium eggplants cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick rounds 3 ¼ teaspoons salt 5 pounds fresh plum tomatoes 1 ½ cups plus 3 Tablespoons olive oil 2 large garlic cloves finely chopped 20 fresh basil leaves torn in half ¾ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 1 cup flour 5 large eggs 3 ½ cups Italian bread crumbs 2/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, finely grated 16 ounces whole milk mozzarella, thinly sliced

Process

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss eggplant with 2 teaspoons salt in a colander set over a bowl. Let it drain out excess moisture, about 30 minutes. While eggplant drains, cut a small “X” in bottom of each tomato with a sharp paring knife and blanch them in a 5-quart pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Make sure the water is boiling before adding tomatoes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer tomatoes to a cutting board and, when cool enough to handle, peel off skin beginning from scored end. Coarsely chop tomatoes, then purée in batches in a blender. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a 5-quart heavy pot over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and sauté, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds. Add tomato purée, basil, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper and red pepper flakes. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside. Stir together flour, remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper in a shallow bowl. Lightly beat eggs in a second shallow bowl. In a third shallow bowl, stir together bread crumbs and 1/3 cup Parmesan. Set all three aside. Gently wipe each eggplant slice with a paper towel to remove excess moisture and salt. Working with one slice at a time, dredge eggplant in flour, then dip in egg, letting excess drip off, and dredge in bread crumbs until evenly coated. Transfer eggplant to sheets of wax paper, arranging slices in a single layer. Heat remaining 1 1/2 cups oil in a deep skillet over moderately high heat and fry eggplant for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer with tongs to paper towels to drain. Set aside. Spread 1 cup tomato sauce in bottom of a rectangular, 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange one-third of eggplant slices in one layer over sauce, overlapping slightly. Cover eggplant with one-third of remaining sauce and one-third of mozzarella. Continue layering with remaining eggplant, sauce and mozzarella. Sprinkle top with remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan. Bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted and golden and sauce is bubbling, about 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with a fresh garden salad and fresh-baked French bread hot from the oven. Longtime vegetarian Randy Graham is the author of several cookbooks and a popular food blog. His latest book, “Ojai Valley Vegetarian Cookbook,” is a compilation of 120 of the best recipes from his blog, Ojai Valley Vegetarian. He and his wife, Robin, are retired and live in Ojai with their dog Willow, who is not a vegetarian. See valley-vegetarian.com for more recipes.

2013 Year in Review

WARRIO

Twisters really aren’t a big concern in Carpinteria, and none of the local roads are made with yellow brick. It could be argued that there are witches in town, as well as a few guys who falsely claim wizard status. But the greatest amount of common ground between Carpinteria and “The Wizard of Oz” seems to lie in the theme of the classic book and the general mindset of most Carpinterians: There’s no place like home. So slip on your ruby slippers and join us as we trot along the yellow brick road of 2013 with Dorothy and her crew of lovable misfits. We can bet you’ll find that this year’s local news contained some courage, plenty of wisdom and loads of heart.

Lou Panizzon received 2012 Carpinterian of the Year honors at the annual Community Awards Banquet on Jan. 26, while Carpinteria High School senior Andrea Delgado claimed Junior Carpinterian of the Year prize. Panizzon was recognized for his role in the community as a longtime educator and coach at CHS, as well as his leadership role in the fundraiser to construct Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium and his work on the Board of Education and the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District board. Delgado, a top student, was the Associated Student Body president, president of Rotary Interact Club and vice-president of Junior State of America. Her Jr. Carpinterian prize came with a $4,000 scholarship from Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce. Delgado is currently attending Harvard University.

COUNCIL APPROVES NEW OVERPASS CONCEPT

Plans for a future Casitas Pass overpass, which had been a sticking point in the design of Caltrans’ Linden Avenue and Casitas Pass Interchange Project, won the hearts of the Carpinteria City Council on Jan. 28, after Caltrans designers reduced the number of lanes to four but maintained the option of a fifth should the need arise. The reconfigured bridge incorporates a landscaped median that can be converted to a fifth lane when traffic rates rise in the future. The interchange project, which aims to improve traffic circulation on local streets, is slated to begin in early 2015. In addition to widening the Casitas Pass PLANS UNVEILED FOR NEW CARPINTERIA FIRE overpass, The Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District the $75 plans for a new $5 million Carpinteria fire station at million project meeting and discussed the potential for a $10 mil will replace the measure to fund construction of a Carpinteria Linden overpass, as well as the $5 million Summerland station that extend Via Real to in the works for the last two years. The necessity of replacing the 1 Casitas Pass Road Walnut Avenue station with a modern, earthquake safe building that inclu and Linden Avenue and foot training tower, has since been questioned. And plans announced in replace the freeway bridges to get a bond measure on the ballot as early as November 2013 have b over Carpinteria debated since then. SAN Creek. SH NS

CITY MOVES TO BUY TAX-DEFAULTED TEE TIME PROPERTY

The City of Carpinteria launched an effort to buy the 27.5-acre bluffs property that now houses Tee Time driving range instead of allowing the tax-defaulted property to be publicly auctioned. At a May 23 special meeting, the city council adopted a resolution to avert the auction and to authorize the city manager to take steps to purchase the property for an estimated $1.5 million, the amount the owner owes in 10 years of back taxes. In the many months since the initial excitement of the potential purchase, the city has announced no new progress toward the acquisition.

GOBERNADOR WATER FAILS TO MEET HEALTH STANDARDS

The Carpinteria Valley Water District sent notices out to 171 residents in Gobernador Canyon and parts of Shepard Mesa in late spring informing them of recent water tests that exceeded the threshold for a chemical linked to cancer. Described by the district as a “perfect storm” of atypical conditions leading to higher than normal levels of trihalomethanes, which are byproducts of the disinfection process for Lake Cachuma water, the situation required the district to take steps to bring the level down to meet newly stringent health standards. CVWD installed a new aeration system at the Gobernador Canyon reservoir in July, which immediately reduced the level of contaminants and brought the rolling average down to an acceptable level by November.

MARSH STAGNATES DUE TO ANDBAR FORMATION

After a four-month investigation, a fugitive wanted for forcibly molesting and raping a child under the age of 14 in Carpinteria was taken into custody in Maryland by Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives. Detectives, who had been tracking the fugitive ever since he fled from questioning in January, arrested 33-year-old Santos Javier Guevara-Oliva on May 28 and transported him back to Santa Barbara County where if convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison with no possibility of parole. During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Guevara-Oliva, who was living with his girlfriend and her daughter, had sexually assaulted the daughter.

PAREDON REAPPEARS, THEN DISAPPEARS AGAIN

In early June, Venoco Inc. submitted a revised project description for the Paredon Project, a plan to drill for oil and natural gas from the company’s 55-acre facility on the Carpinteria bluffs. In Paredon’s newest incarnation, Venoco proposed 22 wells instead of 35 and a reduced drill time of three years instead of six. The 175-foot drilling rig remained central to the plan, but the lighthouse camouflage was omitted. A flurry of excitement around the project’s June resurrection died down after the city deemed the project description incomplete, sent it back to the oil and gas company and has still not received an updated description.

CUSD EARLY ED PROGRAMS BLEED DISTRICT FUNDS

Carpinteria Unified School District’s infant, toddler and preschool programs cost the district $252,000 in 2012-2013 due to a series of missteps related to overstaffing, lost state funding and staff discounts for childcare services. Issues began to arise in the fall of 2012 when early childhood classrooms were found to be operating at Carpinteria Children’s Project at Main without full licensing in place, which led to state monies withheld. At CCPM, enrollment expectations outpaced reality, and staffing costs quickly snowballed. The 50 percent discount offered to CUSD staff for childcare services also hit the budget with an unexpected blow.

FIRE BOARD TABLES BOND MEASURE FOR STATIONS, STILL NO CONSENSUS REACHED

A $10 to $12-million bond measure to construct two new Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District fire stations landed in limbo during a March 22 meeting of the fire board. The ambitious plan for an August 2013 vote-by-mail election lacked support from the full board and the firefighters. An independent survey, which found public support to be at just the necessary two-thirds voter threshold needed to win a bond election, was brought into question.

Though several board meetings and a special workshop have been held since the March decision to postpone a bond measure indefinitely, the board still has not arrived at a consensus on whether or not to move forward. Currently, a site study is underway to determine where best to position the district’s stations, and board incumbents and administrators remain hopeful for a November 2014 election.

WATER DISTRICT PUTS MONEY TOWARD SECURING WATER

Facing two years of drought on the books and the possibility of a third in the future, Carpinteria Valley Water District elected to spend $67,800 on 500-acre-feet of its State Water Project allotment. The willingness to open the district’s wallet to secure more water demonstrated the seriousness of the ongoing water watch in 2013. CVWD had been seeking ways to cut costs wherever possible for years to satisfy customers who have long been critical of the high cost of Carpinteria water. Debt servicing for the state water project makes up much of customer’s water bills. The most recent calculations show Lake Cachuma—the primary local source—at 40 percent of capacity.

TRESPASSER SHOT BY DEP

A decade-and-a-half debate over whether to hook Rincon Point up to Carpinteria Sanitary District’s sewer system ended with a ground breaking on the Rincon Septic-to-Sewer Project. The 72 homes on the point started their conversion from septic to sewer as part of a $6 million dollar project funded by the homeowners. Many believe the aging septic systems had leached raw human waste into the ocean. The effort to convert Rincon was fueled by Heal the Ocean but was met with opposition by a minority of homeowners who wanted more proof that there was a problem. The ongoing project involves laying pipeline out to Rincon along the freeway and extending the reach of the district over the final undeveloped portion of Carpinteria Avenue.

A Draft Facilities Master Plan presented to the Carpinteria Unified School District Board of Education showed that the district could use $60 million in upgrades at its eight schools. A committee of volunteers had analyzed all school sites with an aim toward technology upgrades—including a new science wing at Carpinteria High School—and tackling many maintenance projects that had been passed over during tight budget years. The school board will whittle down the draft plan and could use a later version of it to come up with a figure for a general obligation bond proposal on the November 2014 ballot.

MIXED-USE PROJECT GETS GREEN LIGHT

BEFORE A mixed-use construction proposal that under whelmed city planners in its first incarnation was updated and gained planning commission approval after months of redesign. The two-story, 8,080-square-foot building at 4819 Carpinteria Ave. would be built in the vacant lot that served as the Boy Scout Christmas Tree Lot this year. City planners welcomed the retail, office and residential building in the location as an extension of the Downtown T and downtown retail sector. The amended plan has a greater setback from Carpinteria Avenue and lowered heights from the original proposal. Planners allowed a reduction of the numbers of parking spaces required for the two first-story retail spots fronting Carpinteria Avenue, the upstairs office space and two one-bedroom apartments.

Bashore Cage Classic gives the gift of basketball

Carpinteria High School gymnasium saw eight teams compete in the Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic between Dec. 16 and 21. Although San Marcos High School came away with its second straight first-place finish, the home Warriors were able to thrill their fans with a furious comeback bid in a 67-61 loss to Bishop on Dec. 20. The Warriors nearly came all the way back from a 20-point deficit behind Bryson Frazer’s 33 points. The Warriors opened the tournament on Dec. 16 with a 64-52 win over Laguna Blanca High School. Frazer also led the way in that contest with 22 points, and guard Omar Miranda dropped 14 points of his own. In game two on Dec. 17, the Warriors were outgunned by Rio Mesa High School 52-30. Warrior coach Johnny Ward called Rayshaun Moore, who had 10 points in the contest, “one of the few bright spots,” for the Warriors in a lackluster game. The Warriors will continue tournament play throughout winter break at the Santa Barbara Tournament starting on Dec. 27. The team will then begin its run at the Frontier League starting on Jan. 10. The league home opener is on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 7 p.m. against Villanova High School.

a trainer’s journal

ROB BURKE I’m generally not one to jump onto the latest bandwagon or support the crazy fitness proclamations du jour, but this is different. If you want to lose weight, this works. It’s called carbohydrate cycling. The subject matter is far more complicated from a science perspective. However, this will give you a nice, simplified overview of how it works. Carb cycling began in the bodybuilding community and has found its way into general fitness because it’s relatively easy and effective for cutting body fat. The best news is that unlike most yo-yo diets, once you lose the fat with carb cycling, the program’s sustainability allows you to keep the fat off. Don’t confuse carb cycling with the Atkins diet where carbs are totally eliminated. Before I continue, let’s establish some prerequisites for carb cycling. If you’re an average healthy person, you must do the following: 1. Eat four to six small, healthy meals a day consisting of a protein, fat and carbohydrate. 2. Eat at least 1,200 to 1,800 calories per day. 3. Do not skip meals. 4. Drink at least half of your weight in ounces of water. For example, a 200 pound man would drink 100 ounces of water. 5. Cut down or remove processed sugars from your diet, including soda pop and diet drinks. (Yes it’s true, recent studies have shown that diet drinks still trick the brain into thinking you’re getting sugar and, therefore, an insulin spike occurs resulting in fat storage.)

Warrior football players make All-TVL

Several Carpinteria High School football players reaped the rewards of a successful season when Tri-Valley League awards were announced. Four seniors, quarterback Ian Craddock, running back Peter Ramos, tight end Duncan Gordon and linebacker Kevin Stein, were named to the first team. Earning second team honors were running back Bryson Frazer, linebackers Jesus Lozano and Jorge Arroyo, long snapper Conner Kelsey, defensive lineman Joel Perez Montes and defensive back Ruben Garcia. Getting honorable mention nods were linemen Oscar Mejia, Gabriel Zapien-Ybarra, Jose Sanchez and Nicholas Estrada and running back Jonathan Esqueda.

CHS booster club to meet Jan. 6

The 6 p.m. meeting is open to anyone interested in the happenings and continued successes of Warrior sports teams. The boosters will hear winter sports reports from coaches and strategize club efforts for the remainder of the current school year.

I don’t want to go into this with the impression that carbohydrates are bad and you should stop eating them altogether. Carbohydrates are an essential component to a balanced diet. When consumed, they are stored in muscles as glycogen. Glycogen is the body’s biggest source of

fuel for exercise and daily activities. Without carbs, your physical and cognitive abilities would suffer. However, if there is too much glycogen in the body, it gets stored as fat. If there is not enough, then fat is burned as an energy source instead. See where this is going? With that knowledge, let’s consider how progressive changes to the body can assist with producing a reaction that helps us stay lean and at our fighting weight. Here are some examples: If you want to put on muscle mass, you must work out of your comfort zone (shock it) to break down the fibers. This will allow them to regenerate and produce new fibers, hence, larger muscles. If the body has acclimated or has not been shocked, it will not grow. If you want to excel in athletics, you cannot run the same 12-minute mile every time or you will never see your speed improve. You have to consistently try to run faster every time (shock it). The same rational can be applied to losing weight by shocking the body with carb cycling. Let’s start with the basic understanding. A low-carbohydrate diet usually states that fewer than 30 percent of your macro-nutrient calories (protein, fat, carbohydrates) come from carbs. Carb cycling just fluctuates intake to keep the body from acclimating. For example: Monday (shock day): low carb intake at about 20 percent of your total caloric consumption resulting in glycogen depletion Tuesday: moderate carb intake at about 30 percent of your total caloric consumption Wednesday (extreme shock cheat day): high intake, 40 percent, where you can indulge in many of the foods you would avoid on low and moderate carb days, like pasta, pizza, bread, etc. You still want to avoid simple sugars as you would on your low and moderate days. Thursday (shock day): low carb intake at about 20 percent of your total caloric consumption Friday: moderate carb intake at about 30 percent of your total caloric consumption Saturday (second extreme shock cheat day): High intake, 40 percent Sunday (shock day): low intake, 20 percent Remember that the objective is to keep the body from acclimating by offering periodic jolts of disruption to your system. “Cheat days” are essential and along with shocking the body, they assist with keeping you from feeling deprived so you are less likely to over-consume on your low and moderate days. Final word: keep records to make certain you are on target. Rob Burke is the owner and lead trainer at the Rob Burke Fitness Studio, located at 410 Palm Avenue in Carpinteria.

Boys basketball

Cate School

Dec. 18 – Cate boys basketball dropped its final pre-league season game 72-64 at Faith Baptist. The Rams shot out to a 29-17 lead behind aggressive team defense, particularly the intense play of senior point guard Max Vasquez. However, the Rams’ lead decreased to eight by halftime and disappeared in the second half. Rams coach Bryan Rodriguez was encouraged by stretches of solid play despite the loss. Vasquez finished with 20 points, and Ryan Baird earned a double/double of 13 points and 11 rebounds. The 1-4 Rams will recommence play in the Condor League home-opener on Jan. 8 versus Dunn School.

Girls basketball

Dec. 18 – Cate girls basketball turned in what assistant coach Jay Dorion called the team’s “most complete and impressive effort” in a 44-34 home victory over Faith Baptist. Erika Noble led the way with 17 points and three steals, and Delaney Mayfield had 10 rebounds. Brittany Newsome played her first game of the season and contributed nine points and six rebounds. The Rams held off a comeback bid that brought Faith back to within six points in the final minute. The Rams head into winter break with a 3-2 record.

Girls water polo

Dec. 18 – Cate girls water polo kept its early season successes going with a 12-11 win over visiting Santa Ynez High School. Riding seven goals by Sophia Soriano, the Rams came back from a two-goal deficit to seal the win after eight lead changes by the two squads. Senior co-captains Caroline Montgomery and Chloe King each scored two goals. The 3-0 Rams open league on Jan. 10 against Malibu High School.

Dec. 21 –Warrior girls soccer was overpowered by Dos Pueblos High School in a 4-0 loss at the Winter Classic at SMHS but ended the tournament on a high note with a 2-0 win over Whittier Christian High School. Of the loss, coach Charles Bryant commented, “Overall, we didn’t play that poorly, we were just outmatched on a few fronts.” He said Kelsie Bryant and Lesly Zapata are beginning to gel at midfield, and goalie Natalie Saito kept the game from blowing open. In the victory, the Warriors controlled the ball and benefited from a first half own-goal by Whittier. Midway through the second half, Kelsie scored on a 25-yard shot that cleared the outstretched hands of the goalie. Jessica Meza, Gabi Montes De Oca and Erin Durflinger clamped down on the defensive end to generate the shut out. The Warriors carry a 5-2-1 record into the start of Tri-Valley League play.

Girls soccer

Dec. 18 - Cate girls varsity soccer suffered a 3-0 loss at Fillmore High School in the final pre-league tune up. Fillmore benefited from a direct kick in the first five minutes to take an early lead. Cate then contained Fillmore until there were under 15 minutes to play. Fillmore nabbed two quick scores at the end to put the game out of reach. “We left the field discouraged from the outing, but this team is able and smart and has the potential to play better soccer than we did today,” commented coach Lisa Holmes. She credited Emma Liberman with some heads-up play and the leadership of defenders Lucia Johnson and Fernanda Pett.

Dec. 20 – Warrior girls soccer suffered its first defeat of the season in a 3-1 decision against San Marcos High School in the Winter Classic Tournament at SMHS. “Playing on turf for the first time all year against a fast and skillful team put us on the defensive very quickly,” commented coach Charles Bryant. San Marcos scored in the opening minutes and built a 3-0 lead. For the Warriors, Denise Arreola hit Lucero Reyes with a cross pass, and Reyes put it away. The Warriors’ record fell to 4-1-1.

Happy New Year! garden gossip CHRIS & LISA CULLEN

orchids didn’t bloom, they may need more sun, fertilizer or re-potting. If your lavender died, it may have gotten too much water or it didn’t get its annual cutting-back. You get the idea. Mid-January can be a busy month in the garden with all that rose and fruit tree pruning, so the beginning of the month can be spent shopping for bareroot plants, perusing seed catalogues and dreaming of what’s to come; this may just be our favorite season. Until next time, fill your garden with joy! ––Lisa and Chris

Wow, what happened to 2013? It seems like just a few months ago I was trying to figure out how I was going to write “2013” and, oops, it’s gone. Well, Happy New Year, 2014! Since this is a bit of a down time in the garden, take this opportunity to review garden successes and failures in hopes for a better garden in the year to come. This reviewing the past step is pretty important as it allows you to see what is and isn’t working in your landscape. The first step in any improvement is an assessment. Take a look around and find everything that is right about your garden. Don’t start by looking for what’s wrong, start with what’s right. You’ll be surprised at how many right things there are. How do you decide what’s right? That is part subjective and part practical, but regardless, I think you will find more right than wrong.

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

The other island CHUCK GRAHAM

unpredictable wilderness I once got stranded there for 10 days, a four-day trip that was stretched to 10 due to powerful northwest winds. My tent ripping at the seams, I decided to collapse it and sleep on the landing dock, the only place to hide from the icy spring winds on the smallest of California’s Channel Islands and part of the national park. Santa Barbara Island is only one square mile in size. I can kayak around it in 90 minutes. There are no beaches. There are no windbreaks. It’s isolated. There’s no year-round water source. It doesn’t matter. I keep coming back to it. I recently endured a 17-hour, 50-plus-mile kayaking trip to its battered cliffs, a foggy, winddriven slog from Santa Cruz Island to the treeless islet. Santa Barbara Island might be small, but it’s arguably my favorite isle. I keep flip flopping between it, San Miguel and Santa Rosa islands. There are several arches and sea caves to paddle into if the swell is moderate or less. There are massive sea stacks to paddle around, and there’s Sutil Island. The giant rock outcrop appears like something out of the first Indiana Jones movie. Sheer rock faces fissured by constant wave-battering on all sides, making for some dramatic paddling as waves wash up cliff faces and then sweep back out. The numerous California sea lions enjoy it too and always manage to haul out on precarious ledges to soak in the sun. Although it is nearly 40 miles off the coast of Malibu, strangely Santa Barbara Island is located within Santa Barbara County. Because it’s that far out off the coast it is a convenient stopover for many migratory seabirds like the sooty shearwater, which makes a mind-boggling annual global migration of 40,000 miles— one hardy seabird. Many seabirds nest here including ashy storm petrels, Xantus’s murrelets, western gulls, Brandt’s cormorants and California brown pelicans to name just a few. It’s not uncommon for pelicans to nest in the Landing Cove, the only access

to the island. When this happens, the island is shut down by the park service until the chicks have fledged from their nests. When I was stranded on the island, I ended up running the trails on the island and paddling a kayak before the winds came up. On several of my runs I kept coming across an American kestrel, part of the falcon family, at Cat Canyon. I took my camera gear with me one day, and because I had nothing but time on my hands I made the most of opportunities. This kestrel was so tame it let me approach it within a few feet, something I’ve never been able to do with this raptor before. Kayaking around the island is good fun. The craggy isle is so exposed there can be northwest swell on one side of the island and south swell on the other side. When there is swell, the sea caves and arches are off limits due to the dangerous water movement. But there are a couple of blowholes worth gawking at. One blowhole on the south side of the isle looks as if someone is lying inside the rock with a fire hose spewing full blast. The entire south/southeast shore is a major haulout and breeding colony for California sea lions, which number in the thousands. Kayaking is the best way to enjoy the sights and sounds of these playful pinnipeds. Hordes of them approached my kayak, some even bumping the hull of my boat. A short distance north at the end of the rookery is a small beach and a small collection of northern elephant seals. It is wallowing room only as the larger elephant seals take up most of the limited space on the wet sand. However, the juvenile elephant seals are tolerant of the playful sea lions. It is common to see young sea lions asleep on the broad backs of the elephant seals, total harmony way out here on Santa Barbara Island.

Though petite, Santa Barbara Island is home to a diversity of bird species, including the equally petite American kestral.

If you go: Island Packers is the only boat concessionaire to Santa Barbara Island. Call 642-1393 or go to islandpackers.com. For kayaking, Channel Islands Outfitters is the ticket. Call 899-4925 or got to channelislandso.com. Adventure and travel writer Chuck Graham lives in Carpinteria and is the editor of surfing and aquatic magazine DEEP. For more wildlife photos visit chuckgrahamphoto.com.

Little Santa Barbara Island can be circumnavigated by kayak in 90 minutes.

Snoozing elephant seals on a Santa Barbara Island beach serve as comfy mattresses for young sea lions.

Couples celebrate 2 and 25 in Caribbean

Woody and Trish Bradley, pictured with all the accoutrement of Caribbean beaches, including Coastal View News, took a cruise to celebrate two years of wedded bliss. They joined Joe and Cherry Duran, who have 25 years under their belts, in renewing their vows in Key West, Fla. Due to stormy weather, the cruise ship was detoured to Grand Cayman Islands and Cozumel, Mexico, rather than the intended destination of the Bahamas. Like with any lasting marriage, the couples rolled with the punches.
