Chamber of Commerce honors local business
Nusil wins Large Business of the Year
Curtis Studio of Dance wins Small Biz of the Year
Just about the time that Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs was scratching every penny together it could find to purchase and preserve the Carpinteria Bluffs, business began humming at Nusil Technology. Nusil, which was founded in 1979 in Carpinteria and really hit its stride in the mid-1990s, opened its wallet for the cause and started what has been a long and steady relationship of giving back to the community. This year, Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce recognizes Nusil, the largest single employer in Carpinteria Valley, as its Large Business of the Year. “We’re thrilled,” commented Steven Bohn, Director of Marketing and Commerce. “The company was born here over 30 years ago. We’re a quiet custodian of our local environment, and have always taken care of where we are but haven’t trumpeted what we’ve done.” The silicone manufacturing and processing plant employs around 400 people at its sevenbuilding campus on Cindy Lane off Via Real. Silicone developed in Carpinteria is used in myriad applications all over the world and even in space travel. Silicone breast implants get a lot of attention, but Nusil silicone could as easily end up under the hood of a Ford F150 or engineered into aerospace electronics as it could get implanted
Bonnie Curtis looked baffled when questioned about the moment she realized dance was her calling. “It’s just in the blood,” she replied simply. Having slipped into her first ballet shoes in the early 1950s, Curtis can’t remember a time when dance was not part of her life. hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Carpinteria children similarly cannot remember life without dance or life without Curtis Studio of Dance, a local institution since 1973. The studio, which spent its first year in Casitas plaza before moving to its long-time home at 4915 9th Street, was founded by Bonnie’s mother Mary Lou Curtis, who, as a girl, was advertised as a child sensation and, as a young woman, danced in the USo during World War II. Bonnie grew up in a small Florida town, where her mom worked as a dance teacher at a local studio. She walked from school to the studio every afternoon, where she took classes into the evening. Mary Lou and Bonnie took a motherdaughter dance act on the road, too, performing at festivals and in shows all along the East Coast. a few years after Bonnie moved west, her mother and father followed. and the rest is Carpinteria history. Mary Lou retired in 1987, turning over her studio to Bonnie, who had already

The bad news delivered at the Jan. 8 meeting of the Carpinteria Valley Water District Board of Directors came as no surprise to anyone. Lake Cachuma is less than half full and the forecast does not call for rain. Carpinteria has received 1.07 inches of precipitation since the water year began on Oct. 1, which puts the city at 15 percent of normal rainfall for this time of year. The snowpack in California, General Manager Charles Hamilton reported, is at 20 percent of normal. “That’s terribly low,” he lamented. Significant rainfall is not out of the question, but water managers statewide are preparing for the worst while hoping for the best. If Cachuma falls from its current 40 percent level to 25 or 30 percent, a barge with pumps must be installed to bring lake water up to the level of the Tecolote Tunnel, which feeds South Coast water agencies, such as CVWD, that are dependent on the lake. The barge would likely be required by this September if no major rainfall materializes to raise the lake level. The water district has established a drought management committee, which is meeting on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at noon at the district office, 1301 Santa Ynez Ave.

Meetings are open to the public. Preparations are in the works for an emergency declaration and water rationing should Carpinteria’s water supplies fail to meet its demands in coming months. “We’re not there,” Hamilton assured the board. “We’re not projecting to be there in the next six months.” In ongoing efforts to ensure adequate supply of water by accessing the district’s groundwater, CVWD put its El Carro Well back in service this week. Corrosion issues have plagued the mechanism, but pump maker Bakersfield Pump & Supply recently paid to have metal components coated to guard against corrosion. The first round of coating proved flawed, forcing district staff to return the parts for a second round, which was approved and parts installed for test pumping last week. A stainless steel pump on order for the Headquarters Well is now scheduled to arrive and be installed by the end of February, a shorter timeline than initially anticipated. The two functioning wells will give the district some redundancy should reliance on groundwater grow with dwindling Cachuma water availability. ––Lea Boyd

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.

into a chest—as part of a pacemaker, another application, or breast enhancement. An application pioneered by Nusil was silicone in intraocular lens implants to treat eye ailments. The number of uses for silicone, a heat-resistant, inert, rubber-like compound, make “the tricky part knowing how to focus your company,” commented Brian Nash, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We focus on industries and applications. We’re not a commodity silicone supplier for products like what’s in your hair shampoo.” Nusil does not make the ﬁnal product but provides the materials for a variety of engineering and healthcare silicone applications. “We’re the customization house. What’s important is how our product works in our customer’s manufacturing process,” Nash continued. He said the silicone itself does not set Nusil apart, rather it is the company’s “willingness to listen to particular customers and adapt its products.” Part of the reason Nusil can have the ﬂexibility to meet customer’s needs is that it’s privately held and run almost like a family operation, according to Bohn. Company founder and CEO Richard Compton resides in the area, and people like him and Nash, a local resident, are personally invested in the operation. “The whole gang, they built this company and are pretty darn proud of it,” Bohn said. In addition to supporting the acquisition of the Carpinteria Bluffs, Nusil helped sponsor the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District’s emergency response vehicle and the Carpinteria Community Pool. The company voluntarily collaborates with CSFPD to develop safety standards for its employees and the local environment. Bohn commented that Nusil is an anomaly; it’s a big business that welcomes environmental protections. “Business has always looked upon regulation as bad and slowing down business. We’ve looked at it as good. We’ve thrived in California,” he said.

logged years of teaching dance to young Carpinterians. The studio has since expanded into the former church building on the corner of 9 th Street and Elm Avenue. Bonnie now employs four instructors, who teach everything from ﬂamenco to hip hop. Tap and ballet remain the foundation of the studio’s instruction, and Bonnie prides herself on providing a caring environment and challenging instruction to cultivate technically sound dancers. Bonnie’s husband, Bill Mahlke, also plays an integral role in the business; he builds props, does stage managing and completes studio upgrades. At Curtis Studio of Dance, every willing and able student, regardless of ﬁnancial or physical constraints, is given an opportunity to perform. Bonnie and her instructors have integrated children with disabilities into regular dance classes of all levels, and now that the studio is part of the Santa Barbara Dance Alliance, it enjoys nonproﬁt status––donations toward scholarships are tax deductible. Cathy Cleek, whose 12-year-old daughter Katie danced the lead role in December’s performance of “The Nutcracker,” has watched her daughter’s passion for dance grow under Bonnie’s tutelage. She noted that Bonnie shines when she works with her littlest dancers, getting down on their level and connecting with each pupil. As her dancers mature and become more serious about the hobby, Cleek said, Bonnie’s approach evolves accordingly. She spends weekends working with her competition corps and goes out of her way to provide her dancers with resources more typical of bigger city studios. Over the years, Bonnie has watched several of her dedicated pupils go on to achieve great success in dance. Charis Haines, who tours the world with New York City-based dance troupe Rioult, learned her craft from “Miss Bonnie” and “Miss Mary Lou.” Her mother, Kathleen Lord, said that Haines auditioned against 400 dancers, many whose resume’s boasted top dance programs like Juliard and Marymount Manhattan, to secure her position with Rioult. Of the successful audition, Lord said, “I’m sure Charis was thanking her lucky stars and Miss Bonnie.”

Drought preparations are overdue
I was understandably concerned by the article in the Coastal View News on Oct. 17 about Lake Cachuma draining faster than expected. It wasn’t because of the dry winters we have been experiencing or the fact that the lake is over half empty and will be a mud hole in a couple of years. But, that our water managers were caught off guard. Caught off guard? We pay these water managers and staff millions of dollars a year not to be caught off guard. We pay all this money to these people to guide and inform us through wet and dry seasons, to help us make the right decisions during times of rain and drought. We pay them millions of dollars a year to keep us informed so that we don’t make rash decisions about our water policies as we have done in the past. General Manager Charles Hamilton says we have enough well water to make up the shortage from Lake Cachuma. But, if you have kept abreast of the problems with our district wells over the years, you know there is plenty to worry about. The El Carro and Headquarters wells have been plagued with problems for years and have never been that reliable a source of water. I think it is well past the time to sound a warning about impending water shortages and to begin practicing water conservation in a very serious way. We shouldn’t be told at the last possible moment to begin saving water and cause a panic. I think that the CVWD has done a poor job in this vital area. It is well past the time to begin water conservation and to prepare for the possibility of even more severe shortages.

A doggone shame, part deux
In response to last week’s letter, “A doggone shame”: It was a bad idea to feed a supposedly lost animal so close to the freeway offramp. In reality, the letter writer caused the dog’s death by having him stay where there was food instead of ﬁnding its way home. Dogs are smart and can track their way home.

No new jail
Santa Barbara County neither needs, nor can afford, a new jail. About 70 percent of the jail inmates are “unsentenced offenders.” In other words, they are almost all in jail because they are poor and could not afford bail. Releasing even half of these inmates on their own recognizance, or with electronic monitoring, as suggested by the U.S. Attorney General would solve the overcrowding problem. The unaffordability issue is more complex, but start by considering that the new jail is being ﬁnanced with “lease revenue bonds,” a very expensive way of avoiding voter approval. Voters have twice, overwhelmingly, turned down bonds for jail expansion.

viewpoint Shift your health paradigm in 2014 By Brian Jones Submitted to CVN
I’ve been on this earth 62 years and have had my own cancer challenges. Over the past 10 years, as a result of my health experiences and what I now do for a living, I have come to the realization that we need to approach health a different way. I acknowledge the miracles performed by modern conventional medicine; however, we have grown too dependent on continually being free of pain and discomfort by taking something to eliminate symptoms without addressing the cause. This is great for business models and sales, however, it is simply not the truth—and the truth is what we need now. Do answers—the truth—reside within us? Are we aware that what we think, believe, practice and intend is what we experience, including medically? Increasing evidence indicates our emotional, social and spiritual (can be religious) stress state influences our physical health. Ninety percent of our daily experiences—how we interact and our thoughts—have already been set by behavior patterns from our childhood, and we just don’t know it. Ever say something and then think, “Why did I say that?” Integrative medicine has been a recent arrival. It integrates all aspects of our being (nutrition, lifestyle, mental state, etc.) in achieving balanced living. With chronic health conditions, we just don’t seem to get better. Many practitioners (including this one) have begun to look at the role long-held hurts, resentments and anger
play in stressing our immune system and creating a never-ending story of chronic body ailments. Ongoing stress has been implicated in cancer, Lyme disease and other chronic issues. So, what to do? See a mental health specialist/therapist? There are many fine ones. Point is, as the new year gathers momentum, let us collectively consider creating a new paradigm in our lives. Let’s look at the ongoing stressors and patterns that simply repeat and repeat themselves and can cause health problems that just don’t go away. The next time the same argument comes up with friends or family, we should make ourselves stop and change the way we are handling it (like fingernails on a chalkboard at first) and love that person, send them light and think of them that way. Begin this new year by surrounding ourselves with those who return that energy and not those who continually take it away. Can we simply let go and forgive? Forgive ourselves first and then the other person; the energy actually shifts from the other person being in control to us, the forgiver. We will create an avenue for improved body health. We will experience a freedom with a potential to create a new you/us and introduce a new paradigm in which we cooperate and comfort one another and the Earth. It is the answer to all that plagues us. It is the truth we already know.

The City’s annual Work Program/Strategic Planning Session will be held at City Hall, Council Chambers, on January 25, 2014, at 8:00 a.m. Please attend meeting and be heard!
Council takes first step toward a skatepark By erin Lennon
Local skateboarders inched closer to getting their own skatepark at the Jan. 13 Carpinteria City Council meeting when the Parks and Recreation Department walked away with approval to study the pros, cons and costs of a new skatepark in Carpinteria. After months of informal appearances in front of the city council, collecting community surveys and drumming up support, the Carpinteria Skate Foundation, a nonprofit founded in 2009, is one small vote closer to its goal. On Monday, the city council authorized Parks and Recreation to author a skatepark feasibility study to decipher whether or not such a facility should be considered for Carpinteria. To answer that query, Parks and Recreation Director Matt Roberts said many supporting questions must first be answered. How much would constructing a skatepark cost the city? How much would it cost to maintain? What risks are involved? What type of site is necessary? These questions and many others will be addressed when council members hear the department’s report in late spring. But this is not the first time that Carpinteria has entertained the idea of having a skatepark. In 1998, the city constructed and ran a temporary wooden skatepark in the municipal parking lot along 5th Street. In less than three years, the wooden assemblage, put together with time and money from local residents, began to deteriorate and present safety issues. “That was a good lesson,” said Roberts. “The city learned a lot. We amended our municipal code to incorporate what is considered a high risk activity and to gain some statutory immunity to liability by putting in laws that require helmets and padding.” At that time skateparks were relatively rare, but Roberts says there are now more than 2,000 around the country. And he would like to see if a multi-use skatepark would fit in with the city’s diverse roster of recreation offerings. Because the potential costs of building and maintaining a skatepark could be substantial, Roberts proposes keeping the feasibility study in-house to avoid further upfront costs. The proposed study will also review the current laws that relate to skateparks and investigate data from other cities and agencies with such parks. “And we’re on our first legs forward,” said Mayor Brad Stein, with barely audible applause coming from the few supporters in attendance at Monday night’s meeting. Leaders from the skate foundation are not alone in their excitement. The city received 276 postcards from community
members supporting a skatepark. The council also received an independent audit of the city’s comprehensive annual financial report for the 2012-2013 fiscal year, which ended on June 30. Revenue during fiscal year 2012-2013 exceeded expectations by $21,000. Property taxes amounted to $233,000 more than budgeted for the year, due to overly conservative growth projections for the real estate market. Bed taxes, interest earned on investments and charges for services brought in less than budgeted and nearly offset the increase in property tax increase. In 2012-2013, Carpinteria’s general fund, its largest pool of money, fell to $7.6 million, a decrease of $219,833 from the prior year. While general fund revenues outpaced expenses by more than $20,000, the need to subsidize the park development fund, the park maintenance fund, the right-of-way fund and the recreation services fund prompted the decline. “One of the things I’d like to address at our workshop is the continued subsidies for a lot of these funds that we have to keep putting money into and what we can do in the future, how we can bring those more current,” said Mayor Brad Stein. The city is holding its annual strategic workshop on Saturday, Jan. 25. All city programs experienced significant spending increases, increasing the city’s spending by more than $1.6 million. In all, the city’s ending balance was more than a quarter of a million dollars lower in 2013 than it was in 2012. However, the city did deal with expenses that popped up throughout the year that are outside of the budgeting process, such as legal costs, purchasing staff vehicles and an audit by the Internal Revenue Service, according to Durflinger. “The purpose of our annual financial report is to offer us a chance to take a comprehensive view of the city’s financial position,” said City Manager Dave Durflinger. “This is a report, unlike budgeting that’s based on estimates of expenditures and revenues, that looks at actual results.” The independent auditor’s findings align with the city’s final annual report, which has already been submitted to the Government Finance Officers Association. The city’s administrative services department is confident the city will earn its 16th Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. The city received its 15th consecutive certificate last year. The next regular city council meeting will be held on Monday, Jan. 27 at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers, 5775 Carpinteria Ave.

It’s a Gift That Gives Both Ways Consider a Gift Annuity
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. Amen Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Marys, three Glorias. This Novena must be said for 9 consecutive days. This Novena has never been known to fail.
My intentions for New Year’s day were so good. First, I wanted to pick some early blooming narcissus and bring them inside to scent up the kitchen. Problem was I was still in bathrobe and slippers, and the slippers are scuffs with a little heel, so on the way back in I slipped right off that heel and fell over the doorstep, landing with a crash against the door. Wondering how the dog could make such a noise, my husband Roger opened the door to see me sprawled there in a scatter of flowers, clutching a pair of broken scissors. At least it was only the scissors and not a bone. I just got a scraped knee and a heightened suspicion about those new boiled wool scuffs. The next thing we did was go to the beach to check out the extra high tide that was advertised for New Year’s morning. And it was high, seawater boiling up to the edge of the bluff, leaving nice pools where seabirds were busy probing with their long bills. We stood there for a bit, our Jack Russell terrier Gracie on leash, trying to figure out which way would be easiest to walk. A big, heavy-set guy comes along with two leashed Boston bulldogs, which promptly break free and streak into the nearest pool after the birds. The guy curses and runs his dogs down, catches them, and then they break free again. This time they aim straight for Gracie and attack her. Gracie’s screaming, I go nuts, all my protective mother instincts instantly on fire. I drop down on my knees, cutting off one dog, while the guy arrives to corral the other one. He yells at us, “You guys just gonna stand there or are you gonna go anywhere?” Then he takes off. “This is our fault?” I literally screech at him. My adrenalin is running at high tide. “Your dogs are a menace.” But he’s in retreat with his hoodlum dogs. “This is a public beach!” I yell after him. By which I guess I meant we had a right to stand there if we wanted to, but it was stupid thing to say since it put me in the position of offering a defense for his ludicrous comment. Gracie was roughed up and trembling, her collar even pulled off, but she wasn’t actually wounded. We walked off in the opposite direction, slogging through soft wet sand and dodging the tidal fingers that kept pushing in. Calming down a little. Trying not to think about the New Year’s inauspicious beginnings. That day did get a whole lot better. For one thing, we found that the little skiff Rose Bud had been rescued and was tilted on her side against some bushes, barnacles on the hull drying out. (I wrote
SUMMERLAND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
about watching the tiny craft wash ashore last month.) The other good thing was the Annual Whitney Avenue Board of Directors Meeting, which is the neighborhood potluck in the O’Meara’s driveway every Jan. 1. It was better than ever. Warm, sunny day (I can remember standing out there in the rain one year), great food and conversation, much neighborly good cheer. The O’Meara’s son Matthew, whom I watched grow up, was there visiting from Toronto with his wife, Teresa, and their 1-year-old daughter, Robin Hazel, who was wearing a sparkly princess dress and already walking. Nothing like watching a happy toddler to make the world seem like a pretty fine place in spite of some rough edges.
Life Chronicles correction
I relayed my holiday volunteering story in December: gift wrapping for Life Chronicles, the organization that videotapes the memories for the elderly and terminally ill. Now that the Paseo Nuevo mall is owned by L.A. developer extraordinaire Rick Caruso (owner of The Grove and the scrap heap that used to be the Miramar), Life Chronicles had a really hard time even getting permission to do their charitable work. I wrote that the mall manager wanted assurances about volunteer dress codes and drug testing. I stand corrected: It wasn’t drug testing—it was criminal background checks! You can just never tell when a bunch of criminals are going to volunteer to stand around in the cold wrapping people’s Christmas gifts for donations to a charity. What world does that manager come from? Yeah, I know, L.A.
Climate reality check
My climate activist daughter Katie is giving a free presentation at the Carpinteria Library on Wednesday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m. A few years ago I couldn’t even conceive what a climate activist might be, but now I have one in the family. She was trained as a “climate leader” with Al Gore, and she’ll be talking about the local ramifications of climate change and what steps we can take individually and as a community to meet this increasingly serious challenge. One good thing: The sudden pleasure you feel by moving the muscles of your face into a smile.

Pinch me: Am I really in Russia?
Yes, after years of reading Russian history, after months of planning, and after a hurried flight to JFK followed by a long flight to Moscow, I am actually walking on Russian soil. Hard for me to believe. First impressions of Moscow: traffic and more traffic, apartment buildings one after the other, signs displaying letters somewhat familiar but totally unreadable and people that will not MELINDA make eye contact much less smile. This could be a long two weeks. Of course traveling is a learning experience, and learn we did. First, Russians do not smile and make eye contact with any strangers so I was not to take this personally. Second, Red Square is not at all what I expected. I had pictured soldiers parading in full uniform, utilitarian cement-block buildings, and dull gray colors enveloping everything. Instead the Kremlin is a group of historical buildings that includes palaces, cathedrals and a view of the Moskva River. Next to the Kremlin is the enchanting St. Basil’s Cathedral, Red Square and the Bolshoi Theater—all charming and way beyond my expectations. We quickly faced the fact that Moscow is one of the world’s most expensive cities. Stopping for a light lunch at a sidewalk café, I spent close to $10 for coffee and over $20 for a salad. Let’s just say it was all part of the Russian experience— now on to the Tretyakov Gallery and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art. At the end of this afternoon in central Moscow, we decided to attempt to ride the Metro back to where our ship was docked. Moscow’s Metro system is over 180 miles long and carries about 7,000,000 people per day, most of whom do not speak English. We knew where the central Metro station was. We knew which train line to buy tickets for. But we couldn’t read any of the signs as the Russian alphabet does not translate easily into anything remotely similar to English. We asked people for help even though most did not understand what we said, but the old point-and-shrug technique plus pleading smiles worked quite well. We managed to buy our tickets (very reasonably priced), managed to locate the right level for our train, but how were we going to figure out which direction to go? After we watched two trains arrive and depart, a nice student approached us, said he spoke some English and asked if he could help us. He assured us the next train would get us where we needed to go—just count nine stops and then get off. Now I had to readjust my first conclusion about the Russian population. On this day in Moscow, we had one nice encounter after another, with everyone
being kind and helpful or at least trying to help—and most smiled. Eventually we traveled by ship on the Volga-Baltic Waterway, the Svir River and on the Neva River to St. Petersburg. We stopped along the way at small river towns where the scenery was rural, flat and glowing with fall colors. We had a home visit complete with a welcome toast made of homemade WITTWER vodka, although I must admit I sipped rather than tossed back this drink. During our sailing time, we had lectures by our Russian guides on Russian art, history, politics and religion. I learned plenty of things about Russian history and want to read and Google one item after another well into 2014. Personally I was quite surprised by how outspoken our guides were regarding their current political situation. I expected to hear only the approved spiel, but even our taxi driver had an opinion to share. Universally, the business oligarchs who made billions after the breakup of the Soviet Union are hated, and in general the Russian people expect things to go wrong—roads to be closed, winters to be harsh, or rules to be changed without explanation or reason. I could go on and on. The Summer Palace with a dusting of fresh snow and sunshine glinting off the golden onion domes was magical. The collection of art in the Hermitage was overwhelming. The fields where the people of St. Petersburg held off the siege by Hitler’s troops for over 900 days helped us to understand the magnitude of just how much the Russians sacrificed and suffered during World War II. I also learned the art of layering so I could enjoy the Russian fall weather complete with icy walkways off the ship in the mornings, and the fact that Russian bathrooms are few and far between—use them when available. As I said, travel helps us learn about others—but also ourselves. I learned I want to be like the older British ladies we met on our trip. Two such ladies are approaching their 80th birthdays and have trips planned for the next three years. Another set of English matrons (one of whom has had five—yes, five—hip replacements) always had their canes ready and attacked all the stairs in the Hermitage without one complaint. With them as examples, I’m already thinking of what adventures to have and where to go over the next decade and beyond.

Beware of smash and grab looters
Five smash and grab auto burglaries occurred between Dec. 27 and Jan. 8, three of which occurred in Summerland. On Dec. 27, a woman parked on Finney Street returned to her vehicle to find that her purse, along with the credit cards and $100 cash within it, had been removed from her vehicle through a smashed window. On Jan. 2 on Santa Claus Lane, a woman returned from the beach at around 3 p.m. to find a thief had smashed her window and stolen her snakeskin purse valued at $400 and the $150 in cash it contained. On the morning of Jan. 8, three victims were shocked to have broken windows on their vehicles. On the 5700 block of Via Real, an iPhone was missing from a burglarized vehicle. Two vehicles on the 2300 block of Lillie Avenue were targeted, one of which belonged to a hair stylist who had over $1,000 in hair products stolen.
Shooting the bad guys
Deputies found two men, a father and son, in the Carpinteria sheriff’s substation parking lot on Carpinteria Avenue photographing officers’ personal vehicles on Jan. 3 at 11 a.m. The officers recognized the man who was engaged in the suspicious activity as a familiar face from a similar incident in which he had been accused of photographically recording officer’s license plate numbers. In the prior incident, the photography had stemmed from the man or his family member receiving a citation, noted the officer. The man showed deputies photos that he had taken of the truck and said he was snapping the photos as a point of reference because he was contemplating purchasing a similar vehicle. Deputies were suspicious that when viewing the photos on the man’s phone, some had been deleted from the sequence.
SCRAP GOLD & SILVER WANTED. ANY CONDITION, ANY QUANTITY
In turn, deputies asked the man and son to pose for some photos so they could document the suspicious situation. The man and son obliged. Now everyone has photos.
Bag of panties
A man who caught a deputy’s attention outside a Casitas Pass Road restaurant on Jan. 2 at 2:40 a.m. was found to allegedly be in possession of synthetic narcotics, a crime, and a dozen pairs of women’s underwear, not a crime. The deputy saw the man lingering outside of a vehicle, so the officer ran the plates of the vehicle. Although the sticker on the license plate showed current registration, the deputy’s computer showed the vehicle’s registration had expired. Believing the man had falsely affixed tags, the deputy pulled him over, after the man got into the vehicle and drove. Once at the driver’s side window for the traffic stop, the deputy noticed a pill bottle spilling from a backpack on the passenger’s side floorboard. The deputy asked if he could have a look at the backpack and found synthetic narcotics within the pill bottle. The backpack also contained a dozen pairs of women’s underwear, the variety of which was not described in the report. An inspection of the man’s phone and text messages led the deputy to believe that the man was involved in drug trafficking. The man, who had a record of drug related charges, was arrested for possession and false registration.

In an artist statement, he wrote, “Ideally I like my work to combine three things: a child-like quality, positive and uninhibited; Eastern awareness of tradition and ceremony as necessary to the act of creating; and the sense of a work shifting away from the subject (and from realism) toward process (activity) doing, seeing, and inventing.” For more information, visit artscarp.org.

Amrit Joy’s Hints for Healthy & Happy Living Let it go and Lighten up ~ Part one This three-part exercise is to help you “let go and lighten up”
Sit up nice and straight, ﬁrm yet comfortable. Check your spine for alignment. Check your mind for focus. Be in the “now.” Bring your ﬁngertips to your shoulders and then extend arms out to the side as if you are taking something off of your shoulders. Keep repeating the arm gesture while you do deep breathing. Imagine you are removing from your shoulders all the burdens, stress, negativity, challenges and anything else that weighs you down. Let go of things from the past, things you have taken on that don’t even belong to you. Release the old stuff, let go of resistance and obstacles. It’s no longer necessary to carry family of origin stuff, relationship stuff and worldly stuff. Just let it all go as best as you can. You don’t even have to know what it is you are releasing. Just allow for the letting go. If your arms get tired, let them relax in your lap. When you feel you have removed all you can from your shoulders, continue to let it go and lighten up. Amrit Joy is a certiﬁed Hatha and Kundalini Yoga instructor. She has been practicing and teaching yoga since 1976. Amrit offers ongoing group yoga classes open to all levels here in Carpinteria. Private instruction in yoga and meditation is also available by appointment. For more information, call Amrit Joy at 745-1707 or visit www.amritjoy.com.

Brickley/Nimmer turn to Kickstarter for music video
Carpinteria creative duo Larry Nimmer and Mark Brickley sought to capture the spirit of late 1960s and early 1970s Berkeley in both music and film with their combined project. To launch their rock song and short film, “Berkeley Hills,” Nimmer, the filmmaker, and Brickley, the songwriter, have posted a teaser on Kickstarter. com, where they hope to raise funds to cover their project costs. sUBMiTTeD PHoTo Nimmer graduated Filmmaker Larry Nimmer, left, and songwriter from U.C. Berkeley Mark Brickley combined talents for the short film, during the famed era “Berkeley Hills,” an original rock video reflecting of Telegraph Avenue on the late 1960s and early 1970s in Berkeley. hangouts that were the epicenter of the counter culture. The “Berkeley Hills” project will premiere at a yet undetermined February concert at Plaza Playhouse Theater. Donors to the project’s Kickstarter, which will be online through Feb. 8, can receive incentives like digital copies of “Berkeley Hills” and other perks. The artists hope to raise $1,967, a figure symbolic of the 1960s theme.

ReMoved makes SBIFF
Filmmakers Nathaneal and Christina Matanick keep getting places with their award-winning short film “ReMoved.” The Carpinteria couple took the top prize at last year’s 168 Film Project and now have been accepted into the Santa Barbara International Film Festival for the short film that was completed in a week—or 168 hours, the namesake of the 168 Film Project. “ReMoved” will screen in the Santa Barbara Shorts section on Friday, Feb. 7, at 2 p.m., at Lobero Theatre, 33 E. Canon Perdido, and also on Sunday, Feb. 9, at 4:40 p.m., at Metro 4 Theatre, 618 State Street. The faith-based film, which stars Carpinteria youngster Abby White, earned screenwriter Christina and director Nathaneal up to $1 million in funding for a feature film when they won the 168 festival in Aug. 2012. In the film, White’s character is yanked from a perilous home life and dumped into foster care.

Bon appetit! Photos by Evelyn Cervantes
Art lovers came together on Jan. 11 to feast upon Bon Appetit, the newest show to be served up by Carpinteria Arts Center. The food-themed show, juried by Tony Askew, includes works by dozens of artists in a range of media; it will hang at the center, 855 Linden Ave., through Feb. 24. Last weekend’s reception also provided an opportunity for the public to admire the center’s new improvements. The courtyard makeover could be seen by passers by from start to finish, but the celebration of art also served as a means of showcasing the new elements: bright shade sails, new landscaping, a new sign and fencing along Linden Avenue.

Club members learned that prostate cancer is generally slow growing and is very common in men over age 80.
Seniors install new officers
The new year meant a new slate of officers on the Carpinteria Seniors Inc. board. The 2014 president, Hank Arellanos, was seated at the club meeting on Jan. 10, along with Vice President Billie Wilding, Secretary JoAnn Lutz and Treasurer Art Taylor. Once the business portion of the meeting was out of the way, members were treated to a guitar performance by Rick Reeves.

Duel in the pool: Warriors vs. Rams girls water polo January 16 - 22, 2014
Warrior girls soccer drops to 0-2 in TVL Disappointing showing leaves CHS looking for answers By PeTer Dugré
Carpinteria High School girls soccer missed one of its best opportunities to pick up a TriValley League victory on Jan. 13 while hosting Grace Brethren High School. Before the Warriors could generate much of an attack, the scoreboard showed the home team down 3-0 in the first half. Though the Warriors picked up steam in the second half and controlled the ball throughout, the team could not sink a goal for the second straight TVL match. “We were just flat from the warm-ups on, and I will take the blame for that,” commented coach Charles Bryant. “I almost think we were looking past this team for whatever reason.” The Warriors face challenges in TVL play, but Grace Brethren appeared to be the team most evenly matched with CHS. Last season, the Warriors were able to defeat Grace twice. Grace scored five minutes into the match, 23 minutes in and 31 minutes in, all on breakaways on the right side. “We had bad defensive breakdowns early and often that led to all three first half goals,” Bryant commented. In the second half, midfielder Lesly Zapata won numerous 50/50 balls for the Warriors to maintain possession, and midfielder Kelsie Bryant was able to control the offense, feeding the ball ahead to Monica Garcia, but the efforts yielded no goals. For the Warriors, 0-2 in TVL, the competition only gets stiffer with Malibu High School and Oak Park High School coming up next.
prep news Boys basketball
Warrior midfielder Lesly Zapata was on the attack for much of the match against Grace Brethren, but Carpinteria High School girls soccer still came up short in the 3-0 league loss on Jan. 13.
Jan. 8 – Cate boys basketball dominated its first Condor League game of the season, 73-31, over visiting Dunn School. Cate senior center Ryan Baird tallied 12 of his 16 points in the first quarter to help the Rams out to a convincing early lead. Freshman Nick Thomas had 13 points, and senior captain Spencer Whiteman had eight points including two 3-pointers. “The Rams’ passionate performance was a great way to bounce back from a long break,” commented coach Bryan Rodriguez. Cate improved to 1-0 in league and 2-5 overall. Jan. 11 – In a Condor League tilt, Cate boys basketball battled early but eventually faded in a 41-27 loss at Laguna Blanca School. Laguna owned the boards, commented coach Bryan Rodriguez, which led to second-chance shots, the difference in the game. He commended the spirited play of senior Carlos Fairbanks. Point guard Max Vasquez slashed to basket for 10 points, and Spencer Whiteman had two 3-pointers and 10 points. Rodriguez said the team’s resolve is strong as it looks to improve on its 2-5 overall record and 1-1 league mark.
Jan. 8 – Cate boys soccer picked up a 2-1 win at Oak Park High School. Oak Park jumped out to a 1-0 lead over the rusty Rams, but the Cate squad gathered itself and turned the tables 15 minutes later. Leighton Brillo-Sonnino took a pass from Matthew Firestone and turned and fired a goal from the box to knot the score at 1-1 in the first half. Firestone struck again off a long pass from Abraham Tall that he carried past a defender and sank for the game winner. At goalkeeper, Keller Mochel registered 11 saves. The Rams improved to 2-2-1 on the year. Jan. 11 – Cate boys soccer knocked off its second straight Tri-Valley League opponent, Fillmore High School, in a 3-1 road victory. The Rams jumped all over Fillmore and stayed on the attack until Matthew Firestone struck 33 minutes into the match on a low hard shot that followed a combination of passes from Ryan Borchardt to Shuta Kobayashi to Leighton Brillo-Sonnino. Kobayashi hit Tyler Douglas, who
sank the shot, early in the second half to put Cate up 2-0. Fillmore responded to narrow the lead to 2-1. Firestone scored on a free kick to put the game away. “This was a great result for us. We were so depleted by injuries that we were unable to give many players any rest,” commented coach Peter Mack. The Rams improved to 3-2-1 in a preseason filled with strong upper division opponents. Condor League play starts on Jan. 22, after the Rams face two more upper division tests against Santa Maria and Santa Ynez high schools.
Jan. 11 – Cate girls soccer defeated visiting Vasquez High School 1-0 for its first victory of the year and season. Midway through the first half Maddie Becker knocked the game’s only goal into the back of the net off a rebound from a Jasmine Paz shot. Coach Lisa Holmes commented that the defense fought throughout the match to preserve the lead and shutout. Goal keeper Emma Liberman made a dramatic save late in the second half. “This was a very physical game, and though we were knocked around a bit by a bigger Vasquez team, the girls maintained their composure and showed a whole lot of heart,” Holmes stated.

PREP NEWS: Continued from page 15 Girls water polo
Jan. 10 – Cate girls water polo nearly pulled off a win over defending Tri-Valley League champion Malibu High School but suffered an 9-8 loss at Cate. Sophie Maes had ﬁve goals in the losing effort, which saw the Rams struggle to ﬁnd an offensive rhythm following three weeks off from game action. “It was an off day for the Rams, but the silver lining is that the same off day only led to a one goal loss to the strongest team in the league,” commented coach Nathan Alldredge. Cate held a lead for much of the contest but suffered the consequences of late-game turnovers. The Rams fell to 3-1 overall and 0-1 in TVL.

Jan. 10 – Warrior boys soccer fell short of victory in Tri-Valley League opener with a 1-1 tie at Fillmore High School. The Flashes struck ﬁrst, but the Warriors were able to net the equalizer when Victor Saldaña served a line drive cross from the right side as both Benjie Garcia and Francisco Arroyo made a run. Garcia let it roll through to Arroyo, who rocketed the shot past the keeper with six minutes left in the game to force overtime. Two ﬁve minute extra periods resulted in no points and a tie. Warrior goal keeper Jose Angeles preserved the tie with a late save in double overtime. The Warriors’ record fell to 0-0-1 in TVL and 4-4-1 overall.
Jan. 10 – Cate girls basketball struggled to ﬁnd a rhythm in a 64-24 loss to Santa Clara High School. “Santa Clara is the kind of team that capitalizes on teams that play the way we did,” commented assistant coach Jay Dorion. Delaney Mayﬁeld had 10 rebounds; Erika Noble had eight points; and Brittany Newsome had six points and eight rebounds. Jan. 11 – Cate girls basketball started slow but clawed back from a 12-point deﬁcit to pick up a 47-38 home victory over Orcutt Academy. Key to Cate’s comeback was Brittany Newsome, who recorded a double-double, 14 points, 10 rebounds, and was the difference after Cate found itself in 22-10 hole. Elan Halpern ﬁlled out her stat sheet with eight points, 10 rebounds, six assists, four steals and two blocks. Erika Noble had 12 points and sank critical jumpshots in both the second and fourth quarters, and Delaney Mayﬁeld had 12 rebounds and 10 points. The Rams improved to 4-3.
Carpinteria High School
Jan. 10 – Despite spotting Fillmore High School an early 12-point advantage, Warrior boys basketball collected a 60-54 victory in the Frontier League opener at Fillmore. Bryson Frazer had 20 of his team-leading 26 points in the second half to get the Warriors out on the right foot in league. Defense by Mason Picerni and Frazer in the second quarter drew the Warriors within one at halftime. “It was our defense that ended up winning the game for us. We buckled down, forced turnovers and attacked the basket instead of settling for outside shots,” commented coach Johnny Ward. Omar Miranda had 11 points, and Duncan Gordon had nine.

La Reina was ahead 5-0 at halftime, but Warrior coach Charles Bryant commented the Warriors played a decent ﬁrst 20 minutes to a 0-0 tie before the ﬂoodgates opened. “After they scored their ﬁrst goal, we just lost a lot of our momentum, our passes were not as sharp, we were having defensive breakdowns and although we still were ﬁghting, we were losing a majority of the battles,” Bryant said. The Warriors fell to 5-3-1 overall and 0-1 in TVL.

Handsome and husky
Nanook, aka Mr. Fluffy Pants, loves to chat and adores a good romp with his fellow canines. The friendly 3-year-old Siberian Husky has a reputation as a “cuddle bug” according to his human mom, Connie. When you ask him, “Where is momma?” he will tell you a story. The humans in his household know him as a perfect gentleman, but his feline cohabitants would disagree.

Penny Rowe turned 3 the same day and enjoyed dinner at The Palms restaurant with her great-grandmother and several family members representing the two generations between the birthday girls.
