Howard School’s record of fulfilling all requirements of its operating permit with no complaints from neighboring residents led to quick approval, with more praise coming from commissioners than questions.
With little discussion, the Carpinteria Planning Commission gave Howard school the green light on Jan. 6 to open its doors on Foothill road to an additional 20 students. Howard school’s population is currently capped at 80 pupils taught by seven fulltime teachers, nine part-time teachers and one staff person. However, many of the school’s 80 students have younger brothers and sisters who would like to join the full roster. the private elementary and middle school has been unable to admit any new students under its current terms of operation. that student-toteacher ratio is set to increase after the planning commission voted 3-0 to raise the school’s cap on enrollment to 100 students. Commissioners Jane Benefield and David allen were absent. the new cap could only be obtained after the board revised the terms of the school’s Conditional Use Permit, which allows special uses on Carpinteria sites, and issued the school a Coastal Development Permit, which is a necessary document to alter operations so close to the ocean. Howard School’s record of fulfilling all requirements of its operating permit with no complaints from neighboring residents led to quick approval, with more praise coming from present commissioners than questions. “anytime we’ve had any interactions with the school, they’ve always been very open with us in providing their annual reporting,” said planner shanna Farley-Judkins. “We’ve found that they’ve continued to meet the requirements of their existing permit, and we feel that we can support the project under (the city’s) general plan.” Howard school opened in Montecito in 1912. In 2000, the private elementary school became the tenant of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria under a temporary use permit, which allows for short-term use of a site. Carpinteria required the school to obtain a permanent permit for its operations in 2006 and issued the school its current conditional use permit. the permit requires Howard school to issue an annual report outlining the number of students, staffing levels, hours of operation and information about any special activities that take place on the site during the year. the conditional use permit adopted by the commissioners on Monday evening replaces the 2006 permit and now requires the school to provide additional services such as onsite bicycle parking and carpooling information for students, families and staff.

Brewery looks to double tasting room size By PEtEr DuGré
Island Brewing Company hopes to make 2014 a year of expansion. Carpinteria’s railroad-side microbrewery recently submitted to city planners an application to swell its tasting room and add offices, a conference room and a walk-in cooler. IBC looks to gain permitting for the 3,680-square foot addition adjacent to the current tasting room at 5049 6th street, on the ventura side, as part of an aggressive growth plan for the new year. Owner Paul Wright said the proposal includes nearly doubling the tasting room area and opening up the outdoor patio area fronting the new customer space, which was formerly occupied by tyco Electronics. Wright joked that the biggest news is that the brewery would increase from a one-toilet operation to four toilets in two separate bathrooms. the additional bathroom would go in the old tasting room. the new side would include a Boyd • CVN conference room for potential non- Island Brewing Company owner Paul Wright points to where the profit, staff and special event use. brewery proposes adding a 700-square-foot walk-in cooler within

Wrong way driver nabbed in Ventura
Two weeks after leading Carpinteria deputies on a wild, wrong-way freeway chase then successfully fleeing on foot, Juan Miguel Bejar, 29, was finally arrested on Dec. 28 in Ventura. The suspect was brought into custody after a twohour standoff with the Ventura Police Department’s S.W.A.T team. Bejar, an Oxnard resident, was wanted for stealing a vehicle in Carpinteria before driving the wrong way twice on Highway 101 to avoid arrest. His wife, 24-yearold Sandra Lopez, and his brother, 28-year-old Jose Bejar, both of Oxnard, were arrested in the initial incident. When authorities apprehended Bejar on Dec. 28, he was arrested and booked into the Ventura County Jail on outstanding Santa Barbara County warrants and a parole hold.
Christmas Bird Count tally announced
Juan Miguel Bejar was arrested on Dec. 28 after eluding Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department deputies in a chase on the early morning hours of Dec. 14.
Sixty-eight pairs of binoculars were trained on Carpinteria perches for the Dec. 20 Christmas Bird Count, an event that documented 144 avian species. The fifth annual event, which provides data for the international bird count by the Audubon Society, included nine species recorded in the local count for the first time. These were Canada goose, Rufous hummingbird, prairie warbler, Pacific wren, Harris’ sparrow, Bullock’s oriole, Northern roughwinged swallow, nutmeg manikin and yellow-shafted northern flicker. Rare species found were the prairie warbler, Harris’ sparrow and gray hawk. Count organizer Rob Denholtz reported that this year’s count produced fewer species than in the past few years. Reasons for the drop in numbers, he said, are low rainfall’s impact on habitat, scheduling the count day on a weekday, this year’s lack of a boat trip for a pelagic bird count and an inability to access an inland reservoir because, when rain threatened, the Forest Service closed the access road.
Community rallies to buy bike for girl in need
Tamale orders poured in last December as Carpinterians supported fundraising efforts to buy Jessica Rodriguez, a local girl with spina bifida, a new bike to dramatically improve her mobility. To fill the many orders, Jessica’s mother, Sonia Rodriquez, her aunt, Angelica Juarez, and her grandmother, imelda Mejia, worked long hours preparing tamales from scratch. The fundraiser took an unexpected twist when Mike and Deborah Copus stepped in to underwrite the bicycle. Rincon Cycles received and asSuBMiTTeD PHOTO sembled the bike, and Jessica was riding it as of Jan. 2. With the remaining funds, Jessica Rodriguez takes a ride on an account has been set up to help pay for her new bike, donated by Mike and some of Jessica’s college expenses. Deborah Copus.

Participants in the Ocean to Mountain Hike celebrate the view from the top of Franklin Trail.
25 tackle Ocean to Mountain Hike
The Jan. 1 Ocean to Mountain Hike coordinated by Carpinteria State Beach was a resounding success, according to organizer Leanne Roth. The event drew 25 participants, who walked 8 miles from the state park to the current end point for Franklin Trail and back. A handful of visitors took part, but most of the participants were Carpinterians and all were first-time Franklin Trail hikers. “Besides great weather, and wonderful conversations, it was a treat to see the salt marsh filled with water and the blue ocean from the top of the trail,” reported Roth.

January 7, 2014 Dear THRIVE Supporters: Last year, we introduced our initiative, THRIVE Carpinteria Cradle-to-Career, to the community. As you know, THRIVE aspires to college and career success for all Carpinteria youth. Success not only demands an excellent school system, it also demands the engaged participation of numerous community organizations, business, government entities, and dedicated individuals who, working collaboratively, move all students to success. THRIVE has identified critical benchmarks along a “Success Pathway” that show how students should progress, starting with early childhood. You can view the Success Pathway at:
https://sites.google.com/a/cusd.net/carpthrive/results In the fall of 2013, THRIVE flags and signs went up at all schools…a way of announcing the initiative. Subsequently we held a “roll-out” event in early 2013 and a spring update meeting. One year later, we want report our progress and describe our ongoing efforts to build THRIVE as a true community endeavor. Please plan on attending our January 23 Report to the Community. Space is limited! Please RSVP immediately.

Filtering the conservative smoke screen
In response to “Throw out Obamacare supporters” by Sanderson Smith (CVN, Jan. 2), I came away feeling bamboozled by the letter. But I thank Smith for reminding us once again what the conservative talking points are. To claim stewardship of everything fair and honest without decrying voter ID laws meant to disenfranchise millions on the left is perplexing. I can only assume Smith remains silent because in many instances these laws benefit Republicans. Voter fraud is virtually nonexistent, and no reputable source would say otherwise. Even the Republican National Lawyers Association found just 0.7 cases per state per year over a 10-year period. Smith only promotes candidates whose ideas in no way “suggest that government will be a necessary provider for them.” Has he visited the South recently? How about farmers in mostly conservative states who consistently depend on farming subsidies just to stay afloat? Is he contacting legislators in these states demanding an immediate stop to this practice? I wonder if he believes these hard-working farmers lack “initiative,” as he so often likes to tout and float about. The dirty conservative secret is that “conservative” states on average receive more federal benefits than they pay in taxes than “liberal” states. Check recent IRS and Census data, among other sources. Once again, too, Obamacare is on the docket, and Smith laments recent “nightmares.” Apparently, 48 million uninsured and millions losing coverage every year was acceptable to Republicans. The law needs adjustments; but even the 9 million
now covered by Obamacare understand who’s been fighting for them. Lastly, you want to know the second dirty conservative secret? The Affordable Care Act is a set of free-market reforms based on ideas developed in conservative think tanks. But this doesn’t matter anymore. Through all the insanity, they still want your vote.

Beware of bluffs development
The bluffs are one of the last remaining stretches of untouched coastline in this area. Carpinterians who oppose bluff development are protecting our area from another episode of over-development common to the California coast. Few stretches remain untouched between Ventura and UCSB: the Carpinteria Bluffs, Summerland and the Wilcox Property in Santa Barbara. That’s over 30 miles of coastline almost completely developed! Don’t be tricked by big business stating we need to draw more revenues to the area and utilize the bluffs. Our beautiful views are capitalized by more than meets the eye. Carpinteria is an exclusive destination area. And there’s a multi-million dollar business called the Carpinteria State Beach, occupied year round, drawing millions of dollars for the state, employing dozens, and most importantly,

What Benghazi witnesses?
Regarding “New year, same old lies” by Diana Thorn (CVN, Jan. 2), the writer cites a New York Times study which concludes that al-Qaeda was not involved in the Benghazi embassy attacks. This report is quickly dismissed by the writer as part of a vast left-wing, Obama/Clinton conspiracy. She counters with, “muzzled witnesses to the attacks dispute the NYT, saying it was a military, planned, coordinated attack.” I would like to ask the writer two questions: Who are these unnamed “witnesses”? She doesn’t mention even one name. Would one of them be Dylan Davies, the man featured in a recent segment of “60 Minutes” (Oct. 27, 2013)? This alleged witness, who made exactly the same claims as Thorn, was subsequently exposed as a liar and a fraud! Even the reporter, Lara Logan, and the producer, Max McClellan, were both suspended as a result of their shoddy research. And, if these anonymous witnesses have been “muzzled,” as Ms. Thorn believes, how does she know what they said?

Educate don’t amputate
For the past 10 months, residents of Carpinteria have phoned City Hall asking for a non-binding resolution condemning cat declawing to be passed. Declawing is a surgical procedure (a painful form of mutilation) in which the animal’s toes are amputated at the last joint, providing no benefit to the animal. Los Angeles, San Francisco, West Hollywood, Berkeley, Beverly Hills, Culver City and Burbank have passed resolutions condemning declawing. Carpinteria City Council members have decided the issue of animal welfare doesn’t merit their time and attention. Carpinteria’s young people, enthusiastic to do whatever they can to help, are now standing up for what they believe: that hard work, perseverance and imagination will always triumph over indifference. And they are using social media to spread the message, “Please pass a resolution condemning declawing.” Help get the message across by calling the city at 684-5405 x400, 403 or 450.

I live right off the Linden Avenue Highway 101 off-ramp, and on Christmas Day we saw a small dog sitting on the grass. We stopped and tried to approach, but it ran off into dense bushes. It was quite impossible to reach in without cutting them down; but that would only scare what appeared to be a little lost dog. It had no collar and was black with tan markings on its feet. I left some food and checked later that day. It again ran away when I approached, but it had eaten what I left. I repeated this every day; sometimes other cars stopped to offer help as they too had seen the little dog and were concerned. Today, New Year’s Day, on my way to feed him, I saw his little body laying lifeless on the side of Linden off-ramp. He had been hit by a vehicle, probably going way too fast to even brake in time. The exit is 25 miles per hour, but you’d think it was the Indy racetrack the way some drivers come around there. I’ve lost count of the number of rollovers and accidents at this site. So if you are reading this and were the one who hit him, I trust you reported it to the police, as required by law. And next time you come off the freeway there, spare a thought for that cute little dog and the physical pain you caused it. I won’t forget him!

Please charge to:
bringing in large amounts of visitors and big time dollars to support our local businesses and livelihood. Visitors pour in by the thousands to enjoy our beaches, tide pools, seal rookery, bike trails and bluffs. The Carpinteria Bluffs are an area of natural resources, with many native animals and plants. As for the ocean, it is one of the most pristine ocean reefs and natural beach areas in all of Santa Barbara County. Proposed large-scale development will only bring more opportunity for disturbance, pollution, fertilizers and pesticides to maintain landscapes, causing runoff to what now is considered a delicate area. This is why there is a resistance to develop the area. As a society, we have realized the importance of conserving these last remaining stretches of untouched land.

Josephine Pia Costantini 12/29/1928 – 12/17/2013
Josephine P. Costantini passed away gently at the age of 84 after battling with Alzheimer’s. Loving family remembering her includes her sister Gina Zanella, nephew Mark Zanella and his wife Evelyn, and niece Ann Zanella. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Jo graduated from UCSB with a Bachelor of Arts in 1952 and began her teaching career at the Santa Paula St. School, and then the Ansgar Larsen School in Oxnard. In 1954, she dedicated herself to the students of Aliso School in Carpinteria, first as a teacher, then as the Assistant Principal in 1958, and became the school’s longtime Principal from 1965 to 1989. After “retiring,” she never really retired, but
continued working with Aliso teaching, testing and assisting wherever needed. A devoted educator, her work was also her love and passion. When Gina was 5 years old, Jo was already her “teacher,” and through the years, family members have often been regaled with “I remember Ms. Costantini” stories from former Aliso students and parents about town. She’s a local legend! When not at school, Jo was an avid reader and card-player, and enjoyed scenic drives through the countryside (with questions of “Auntie, are we there yet?” from her then-youngster niece). She was also a frequent visitor at Gina’s house, often around the dinner hour. Coincidence? We think not—a favorite dinner proclamation was “Deeeelicious!” Mark and Evelyn have also adopted Sparky, Jo’s loving cat, who’s made himself quite at home and purrs like a freight train at the slightest touch. “Careful, don’t turn him on!” we smilingly proclaim. The family sends their gratitude and appreciation to Senior Advocates Residential Care, Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care, Assisted Home Hospice and Friendship Center for their wonderful care and support in Jo’s last years. Donations in her honor can be made to Aliso School or any of the above. Jo is very much loved and will be missed by her family and friends. She was laid to rest beside her parents at the Calvary Cemetery and Mausoleum.

A ranch worker and a ranch manager suspected that a man and woman seen at multiple Foothill Road ranches on Dec. 13 were poaching fruit, a common problem in the area, according to the manager’s statement to deputies. The ranch worker ﬁrst spotted a truck parked roadside with a woman sitting in the driver’s seat. He then noticed a man coming back to the truck with avocados. The worker turned his vehicle around to confront the truck and its occupants, but they had driven off. Then the truck of the alleged avo poachers stopped alongside another ranch, and the ranch manager was called in. The manager found the suspicious truck and trailed it to a private road through a ranch. The ranch manager then confronted the avocado pickers, who said they were looking for a park off the freeway but got lost. The suspicious people in the roaming truck drove away, and the ranch manager called deputies. Deputies then tracked down the truck at Rincon County Park. The occupants reportedly allowed deputies to search the vehicle, where the ofﬁcers uncovered 16 avocados hidden under a sweatshirt. The man told deputies that he had permission to be on each of the ranches at which he allegedly trespassed. He also told deputies he thought it was legal to pick avocados if they are hanging over a fence line. And, he said he had only picked avocados from the ground, not branches. Deputies issued citations to the suspected avocado thieves.
The face that launched an auto burglary
A man reported that the car he had rented and lent to his son was stolen, maybe by his son’s friend’s ex-boyfriend. The man said he rented the Nissan for his son, a recovering drug addict, who was to use it for a road trip. He rented the car on Dec. 18, and the son said he would return it by Dec. 20. When the son missed his deadline, the dad called him, and the son, 20, said he had run into some car trouble. Speciﬁcally, a person, maybe someone with connections to a gang and a woman he’d met in rehab, had threatened to put a hit on the son and his family if the son did not give him the car.
The father called the sheriff’s department to report the situation but would not sign a stolen vehicle report, which deputies needed in order to pursue the case and the allegedly stolen vehicle. First, the father wanted to see if this situation could work itself out without the help of law enforcement. He explained to deputies that the son’s acquaintance had taken the vehicle. The acquaintance was also an acquaintance of a man who did not like the son, because the son had helped get the acquaintance’s acquaintance’s ex-girlfriend into a treatment facility for her drug problem. That gesture was seen as a move to win the girl’s heart and was allegedly the root of the car problem. The angered exboyfriend reportedly had enough gang clout to get his shot-caller, gangster friend to order a hit on the son. By the time two more days passed, the father called deputies again to report that the car had not returned. The father had been communicating with the man who was reportedly in possession of the vehicle, but the alleged vehicle thief kept ﬂaking on returning it. This time the father signed the vehicle theft report, but deputies still needed to track down the son to verify the identity of the suspect. Deputies had been able to speak with the suspect on the phone, but he hung up when he found out he was talking to lawmen.

A hustler or con artist is someone who pretends to be something or someone he or she is not so as to gain an advantage over other people. To be a good con artist you have to be shrewd, industrious and willing to lie, cheat and backstab. It sounds pretty bad when it’s put that way. So it’s no surprise that when most of us think of a con artist we think of some sleazy guy with slicked back hair and no scruples bilking sweet old ladies out of their life savings.

The Rotary float appears in the 125th Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade.
Nomura chairs Rose Parade float committee
The 125th New Years Day’s Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade featured a float led by Rotary Rose Parade Committee Chair Wade Nomura, who is also a Carpinteria City Councilman. The theme of the float was “Engage Rotary/Change Lives,” which Nomura said tied in nicely to the Tournament of Roses theme of “Dreams Come True” to help deliver the Rotary message to a world audience. “As a polio survivor and having traveled to India to immunize children for polio, I wanted to send our Rotary message out to the world of our efforts,” said Nomura. To help trumpet the service club’s success in eradicating polio, the grown children of doctors Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin, who pioneered the polio vaccine, rode on the float, as well as Rotary International President Ron Burton. Burton stated “Rotary has taken on this effort and has pledged to continue the fight until the last case is seen, and Polio will no longer exist.”

Members of Carpinteria Seniors Inc. can look forward to a musical meeting on Friday, Jan. 10, starting at 2 p.m. This month’s gathering of folks in their golden years will feature a performance by singer Rick Rleaves, as well as a presentation on the Carpinteria Talent Showcase by the Rotary Club of Carpinteria.

Marshing with the tides living the green life
With the excellent weather we have been having—I can’t complain about summer in December—everyone should be taking advantage and getting outdoors. If you went away for the holidays or just didn’t make it to the beach, you may have missed the very high tides. Tidal changes as extreme as the ones in the last couple of weeks have multiple effects on our coastline, both positive and negative. As a beach lover, I have been fascinated with tides since I was a little girl. At low tide, I knew it was a good time to dig up shellﬁsh along the coast of Rhode Island where our family had a house. And high tide was the perfect time to put a rowboat in the water from the boat launch. Living in a coastal area, you probably are aware of the effect the moon has on the tides. Actually, the relative position of both the sun and the moon to the Earth cause the tide changes. When our planet is closest to the sun in its orbit, as happens every January, and the moon is also closest to us in its cycle, we have extreme high tides as we did last week. These extremely high tides, also called King Tides, can have damaging effects on beaches and low lying coastal areas, especially when combined with winter storms. However, they also give us a snapshot into what will happen as our sea levels change. And they can have positive effects on coastal streams, rivers and marshes. We all remember what happened over the summer when the mouth of the Carpinteria Salt Marsh closed off as water levels dropped, preventing ocean water from entering and fresh water from leaving. Fish and other aquatic life died off as oxygen levels dropped, algae bloomed and the condition worsened until it was manually unblocked using heavy equipment. Tidally inﬂuenced salt marshes, areas
Carpinteria Salt Marsh provides an excellent view of extreme tides. The lowest of the low tides expose muddy banks that are typically under water. where fresh water meets the ocean, are an important habitat for many plants and animals. They provide refuge and are a food source to a large number of animal species, as well as acting as nurseries to a large number of ﬁsh and shellﬁsh. The streams that ﬂow into the marsh carry nutrients and sediments from high up in the watershed; too much of either can throw off the delicate balance of a marsh ecosystem. The ebb and ﬂow of tides, especially high tides such as those we experienced last week, helps ﬂush excess sediments and nutrients out. Marshes also help protect adjacent areas from ﬂooding conditions winter storms can cause, as well as more extreme occurrences such as tidal waves and tsunamis. Plants that live in marshy environments often have intricate root systems, and they slow the speed of water down, dissipating some of the energy before it reaches land.
If you did get a chance to visit the beaches or marsh during the high tides last week, hopefully you got to observe how high the water level in the marsh gets and how the tide effects erosion on the beaches. High tides all over the world are tracked by scientists with the help of citizen volunteers. For many years, sea level rise has been tracked by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Contrary to what many people believe, sea level change is not uniform. The ocean, like the land mass of our planet, is, and has always been, a constantly changing environment. Some areas of the planet have seen relatively drastic changes in the last 50 years, and others almost none. And some areas, such as coastal California, are starting to see a greater change in sea level, while others are recording less. But tracking the extreme high tides helps us anticipate ﬂooding conditions before they happen, allowing communities like
Carpinteria to better prepare for what will happen as sea levels change. If you didn’t get a chance to check out the high tides last week, you will have another chance at the end of the month. (And I really suggest you do, as last week’s were quite impressive.) The last king tides of the season take place Jan. 29 through 31. If you are interested in becoming involved as a volunteer, visit the California King Tides Initiative website at californiakingtides.org/. Erin Maker is the Environmental Coordinator for the City of Carpinteria. She studied biology after discovering her love of nature and science while growing up in Vermont. Always interested in improving water quality and recycling, she currently oversees the City’s Watershed Management and Solid Waste Programs.

Tart it up
I have to tell you that I love apple tarts. Preferably with thin buttery crusts, lots of apples and not too sweet. These are the kinds of tarts my mum taught me to make when I was young. I loved them so much she made this as a birthday cake for me one year, but it tragically got squashed when someone sat on it (don’t ask). Thankfully all the ones since then have survived intact. I was about to make the one from my “Autumn” cookbook for this column but then decided to make a variation of that tart. Before you cry out, “That’s a lot of very thin slices,” or ‘It’s going to take too long,” I should promise you that it’s worth the effort. The dough is easy to make, easy to roll out and very forgiving. If you have a gaggle of people in the house, put them all to work; the peeling and slicing will be done in no time. There is great camaraderie in cooking together, and everyone will be pleased with the results. It’s the perfect dessert for a large gathering and a lovely way to celebrate the beginning of the year. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2014.
Ingredients for the pastry:
9 ounces unbleached all purpose ﬂour 6 ounces slightly softened butter, cut up into small pieces 1 large egg Zest of 1 lemon Pinch of salt
MAGAZI CARPINTERIA winter2014
Available at local businesses, Coastal View News ofﬁce and at www. carpinteriamagazine. com
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Place all the ingredients into a food processor and use repeated pulses until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs, then use longer pulses until the dough forms a ball in the bowl of the food processor. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes before rolling out. Place the unwrapped dough on a lightly ﬂoured work surface. Roll the dough out to a ¼-inch thickness. Line the tart pan with the dough, trimming any excess from the edges. Prick the dough using the tines of a fork.
Ingredients for the apples
8 – 10 large apples (Granny Smiths, Golden Delicious, Gala’s—a mixture is also ﬁne) peeled, quartered and cut into thin, even slices. Juice of 1 lemon, squeezed over the apple
slices 1 Tablespoon sugar 3 Tablespoons apricot jam
Arrange the apple slices, standing upright, running alongside the outside edge of the whole tart. Once the ﬁrst round is complete, create a second round inside the ﬁrst and so on until the entire dough is covered with the apples. You should have concentric rounds of apple slices working toward the center. Finish with the smallest slices. Dot the surface of the tart with small pieces of butter and sprinkle with the sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Place the apricot jam in a small saucepan and heat through. Using a pastry brush, coat all of the apples with the apricot glaze. Return the tart to the oven and bake for a further 5 minutes. Pascale Beale grew up in England and France surrounded by a family that is passionate about food, wine and the arts.

Identifying and making the most of your shape wardrobe wisdom LORI COOPER DRAwINGs By CAmIllE COOPER Have you ever admired a garment on a mannequin or in a magazine, only to find that you did not like it once you tried it on? There are myriad reasons why your idea of what something will look like on does not match the reality. The most common one is that the garment was not designed for your body shape. I would like to go over the main body shapes and advise you on what clothing will make the most of your figure. Once you identify your body shape, you will know what to look for when you shop. The most common body shape is known as the apple. This describes a woman with (often) shapely legs, a substantial bust, wide rib cage, a round or full back, generous torso and narrow hips. When I work with women who are apples, they often have a closet full of loose, boxy tops and illfitting skirts or pants. They tell me how frustrated they get shopping for clothing that fits them well, since their middle is bigger than their shoulder area or hips. For apples, it’s all about wearing tailored clothing that will complement, not hide their figures. This means V-necklines that help slenderize the neck, gathers on the sides of dresses, pants and skirts with no pleats or gathers, and tops that have nice seaming in the front and/or the back. If you are an apple, a tailor can take a shapeless jacket or blouse and give it some seaming to give you a more feminine silhouette. When looking for pants, find ones that fit your waist, and then have them taken in along the hips. Another common body shape is the pear, meaning a woman with a lovely waistline, narrow shoulders, and full hips and thighs. Pears can look bottom heavy unless they learn a few sartorial tricks. It’s important to look for pants and skirts in midweight, drapy and dark colored fabrics. You want these bottoms to fit your waist and graze nicely over your hips and derriere. This may mean purchasing pants and skirts that need to be taken in at the waist. Finally, on the topic of pants, look for mid or higher waisted trousers or jeans with a wide waistband. If you’re a pear-shaped woman, you should keep the focus on the top half
of your body by wearing more striking colors there and neutral colors on the bottom half of your body. Choose structured shoulders (with a seam at your shoulder) and jackets that are fitted through the bust and nip in the waist. According to What Not to Wear’s Stacy London, this kind of jacket “sits at the top of the hip to create a longer leg line and slim the hip.” The hourglass figure is much envied for its generous bust, defined waist, curvy hips and nice legs. If this is your shape, avoid oversized or boxy styles and draw attention to your waist with wide or narrow belts. Low cut jeans (which, thankfully, are not so popular these days) can give you love handles. You look good in pencil skirts that hit at or just below the knee, and tailored jackets. When you find a blouse that fits well through your bust, it may be too big in the shoulder area. Yes, I am going to suggest going to your trusted tailor again to fix this! An often overlooked but not uncommon body shape is the rectangle. I know this shape very well, given my undefined waist and proportional upper and lower body. I tell people that my clothes look good on me due to smoke and mirrors. I have learned that wearing wide to medium belts makes me look like I have a waist, wearing pleated skirts gives me some volume around my hips, and fitted shoulders and a jacket with seaming adds curves to my figure. Skirts that flair and A-line skirts add volume to my lower half as well. Clothes that fit close (not tight) on my body are flattering, and jeans with some detail on the back pockets can make it look like I have a nicely rounded bottom. Like I said, it’s smoke and mirrors! In general, designers use fit models with figures very few women have. Therefore it makes sense that a lot of the clothing you try on is not flattering without some tailoring. Knowing that you are a rectangle or a pear, however, will lead you to garments and certain brands of clothing which are likely to look great on you. I wish you all a very happy, well-dressed New Year! Former writing teacher Lori Cooper has turned her love of shopping and style into a career.

Greetings 2014 Dear Carpinteria, Well, it’s a new day and a new year so I thought that I would try something a little different. The change of one year to the next is always filled with talk of new starts and resolutions—people not wanting to take a bad habit from the previous year into the next. While this is all good and beneficial, I’d like to challenge you all to try something a little different this year. For many people, 2013 was a very challenging year. Whether financially, spiritually or emotionally, many people I know have struggled over the past year. So this year, at the beginning of 2014, I would like to ask you not to dwell on all the things that you did wrong over the last year, not to focus on your bad habits or lack of direction, but to focus on all the things that you did right. What did you learn over this last year? How have you become a better, more compassionate, more aware human being? What kind of lessons or
habits do you want to continue into the new year. There are times when it’s important to pat yourself on the back and give yourself a big hug. Good job, Carp, for making it through 2013! Now that you have finally made it through this last year, what do you want to manifest for 2014? What kind of person do you want to be? How can you become the most self-empowered, compassionate and phenomenal person you can be this year? Time to manifest. After all, you already live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, so you must be doing something right. Don’t be afraid to be bold and thrive throughout this next year! “Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.” ––Ralph Waldo Emerson Happy new year! G.G.

BREWERY: Continued from page 1
The addition of a 700-square-foot cooler would increase IBC’s production capacity. “The new walk-in cooler will really facilitate moving the beer through the system faster,” Wright said. IBC will soon be sold in 12 Vons grocery stores between Camarillo and Goleta, and the company’s distribution sphere has grown to a store and hotel in Simi Valley as well. That’s in addition to the 12 Albertsons grocery stores that carry limited IBC labels. A new van has been added to the distribution fleet to meet intensifying needs. Also in the works, IBC is currently awaiting the arrival of a canning machine in order to begin selling 12-ounce cans of beer, to “balance out the 22-ounce bottles,” according to Wright. Asked about the buzz surrounding two additional breweries hoping to open in Carpinteria, Wright said he’s taking a wait-and-see approach. “We’ve had a good run here in Carpinteria for 12 years, and the community has been very supportive,” Wright said. “The industry is changing. It’s growing like crazy, and the customer base is expanding, so it’s not going to hurt us like it would have a few years ago.” The city has approved a new restaurant/microbrewery at 5065 Carpinteria Avenue, and a business permit has been issued to soon-to-open BrewLab at 4191 Carpinteria Ave., Suite 8.
HOWARD SCHOOL: Continued from page 1
School’s annual report will also be due on Jan. 1 of each year, and this report will continue to be presented to the planning commission every spring. “This permit would supersede the previous permit and replace all those existing conditions, so we’ve incorporated those appropriate conditions into the new permit,” said Farley-Judkins. The planning commission’s approval of Howard School’s increased student population comes nearly a month after the city council’s Dec. 9 decision to cement the long-informal and unspoken agreement allowing Girls Inc. and Howard School to use parking amenities at the El Carro Park north parking lot, if needed. Howard School or Girls Inc. traffic can seep into the city’s lot after the organization’s 30-space parking lot fills. Likewise, Carpinterians attending events at El Carro Park can leave their cars in the Girls Inc. parking lot after the city’s lot is at capacity. Carpinteria anticipates the school using upwards of 13 spaces in the El Carro lot during its peak operating hours in the afternoons. The project’s Dec. 5 Traffic and Parking Study found that existing roads, intersections and parking resources can adequately support the traffic that could accompany the 20 additional students. Howard School’s expansion would not structurally alter the site at 5315 Foothill Road, which is zoned for recreational use and has been occupied by Girls Inc. since 1993. Without structural changes or alterations to the site, the environmental review process was succinct, and the uptick in the student body is unlikely to have environmental impacts. “It definitely sounds like something we want to do and go forward with, and I certainly wish the school luck in adding to that student body,” said Planning Commission Chair John Callender. The next regular planning commission meeting will be held on Monday, Feb. 3 at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers, 5775 Carpinteria Ave.

Team rides consecutive wins into league play By PeTer Dugré
hannah galsterer ignited Carpinteria High School girls basketball in the first quarter before handing the baton to tori Kelley in the second quarter of a 52-44 warrior win over Villanova prep on Jan. 7 at ChS. the warriors, however, almost saw a 41-25 lead heading into the fourth quarter evaporate before staving off Villanova in the final contest before Frontier league play begins on Jan. 9. galsterer scored eight of her 16 points in the first quarter to stake the Warriors to an early lead. “we weren’t sure how we would come out against Villanova, because we scrimmaged them early in the season and lost,” said galsterer, the team’s senior captain. Kelley, a freshman point guard, then took over the role of having the hot hand with eight points of her own in the second quarter. She finished with 14 points. Coach Dan Mercer commented that the mix of senior leadership in galsterer and a lot of young talent has allowed for much growth over the preseason. “the learning curve is so huge, but they’re getting it,” Mercer said. Four freshmen are big parts of the rotation, along with sophomore Macey Frazer, who contributed eight points and held down the mid-
dle against Villanova in the absence of harmony Reed, a freshman post player. Villanova plays in the tri-Valley League and had dominated Frontier league before bumping up two seasons ago. the warriors improved to 5-5 overall in pre-league play. Many of the losses had come against upper-division opponents at the Santa Barbara tournament of Champions, since which the team has won two straight games. “it’s really nice to get a victory before league. We’re ready to take on Fillmore now,” galsterer said. the warriors had beaten San Marcos high School with a comeback victory on Jan. 5. Villanova pressured the warriors frontcourt at the start of the fourth quarter and forced numerous turnovers to push back into the ballgame. the warriors led 45-25 following two quick buckets by freshman Monique Sanchez to start the fourth, but Villanova charged back on a 19-4 run that put the score at 48-44 with 22 seconds left in the game. galsterer, however, ended the game where she’d started it by sinking two free throws and a put back before time expired. Sanchez scored six points in the fourth quarter.

Jan. 4 – Warrior girls basketball faced a 27-19 deﬁcit with six minutes left in a home contest against San Marcos High School and managed to pull off a 35-30 victory. During the 16-3 Warrior run to close out the game, Maddie Cleek made a three-pointer, Monique Sanchez made two baskets and Tori Kelley had seven points. Hannah Galsterer sealed the game on a free throw with 23 seconds left. Overall, Kelley had 17 points and three steals, and Cleek and Galsterer had six each. Sanchez had six rebounds. Coach Dan Mercer commented that post defense by Annalisa DeAlba was valuable against the height of San Marcos. The Warriors improved to 4-5 over the preseason. Mercer credited experience the team gained at the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions in late December for giving the girls the conﬁdence they needed to come back against San Marcos.

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California
Home, sweet leafy home CHRISTIE BOYD
carpe carpinteria Some of my fondest childhood memories center around a friend of mine who had a rudimentary treehouse right next to a pomegranate tree. We would sit on the platform (which is really all the treehouse was) and reach across the gap between the platform and the pomegranate tree and pluck the red fruit off the tree. The treehouse floor was stained from years of such treatment, as were our clothing and hands. I love pomegranates to this day, and that feeling of being in a secret, special place, high above the real world, is still a large part of my continued affection for the seeded fruit. Treehouses are used all over the world—not just for recreation and childhood fun, but for habitation. In Irian Jaya, Papua New Guinea, the majority of the Korowai tribe lives in treehouses suspended high in the branches of the local ironwood trees. All the materials used to build the houses are locally sourced in the jungle with nary a nail or screw used in construction. The social status of the tribe members directly corresponds to the height of their house, with the leaders
having the tallest treehouses, often suspended 100 feet above ground. The Korowai live in treehouses to escape the teeming insects on the ground, enemies and ﬂoods. As Carpinterians, we don’t need to worry much about those concerns so treehouses can be more of an escape from bothersome family members and reality. Oftentimes when a “real”
house is built to capacity on the ground or has a very speciﬁc style that doesn’t lend itself to augmentation, a treehouse is just the solution. The ﬁrst step in building your heightened abode is, obviously, tree selection. As the tree trunk is to become the home’s foundation, pick a tree with a strong, sturdy trunk. An opening in the main
branches is helpful, but you can always thin any branches away that compete for space with your treehouse. Next, think about how the treehouse is going to be used. Is it for younger children or older children? Adults? Is it a full extra bedroom or just a room with a view to escape to? Answering these kinds of questions can help you determine the size and layout of the structure. Designing the treehouse is the fun part with considerations of ﬁxed windows, doors, etc. strictly up to you and your needs. Crafting a paper/cardboard model can be a helpful step as well. Many modern treehouse builders are using recycled materials for their character and affordability. Swap meets, building demos and yard sales are all great ways to ﬁnd interesting materials that will make your treehouse unique and personal. In the Korowai culture, everyone comes out to help build the treehouse. Sounds like a great way to make a treehouse in Carpinteria too. Collect your materials, ﬁnd a few skilled friends and build your way up the tree. Just make sure you don’t build any higher than Mayor Stein. Christie Boyd is the co-owner of Porch home and garden store, located at 3823 Santa Claus Lane. She is a plant lover and long-time Carpinterian whose interests reach far beyond the garden.

on the road Eiquihua tours Southeast Asia
On a trip to Vietnam and Thailand, Martin Eiquihua sampled both the outdoor offerings of the tropical climate and urban cultural centers. The street markets in Bangkok, Thailand, contained thousands of artists and craftspeople exhibiting their sculptures, ceramics, paintings and wood and metal works within a 35-acre footprint containing 8,000 market stalls. Eiquihua also slowed the pace of the trip with island and beach excursions, before hitting a karaoke bar in Vietnam to celebrate his birthday with friends and Coastal View News. The Frenchinfluenced cathedrals of Ho Chi Minh City also were a noteworthy inclusion on Eiquihua’s extensive travel log.

Casper the friendly Pom The Fink family brought home eight-week-old Pomeranian puppy Casper last week and discovered quite quickly that the 3-pound fluffball was worth way more than his weight in cuddly cuteness. So smitten is new dad Bud Fink that he responded to the question of how the new pet is adjusting to his new home in Sandpiper Mobile Home Park with the following: “Fine. He just pees all over. He’s very indiscriminant.” House training may be on the agenda, but more vacuuming is not. The new pooch hasn’t shed a single hair in his first week in Carpinteria, the Finks reported. In the next several months, they expect Casper to pack on the pounds and grow into a full-sized 7- to 10-pound pooch.
