Council approves new sustainability policy, hears IPM ups and downs BY Cat Neushul
Crafting policies that will promote sustainability is a necessity for many local governments, and the City of Carpinteria is no exception. On Jan. 27, the city council voted unanimously to adopt a resolution meant to be a guide to help the city design and support programs and projects that promote sustainability and resiliency. The Sustainable Community Policy does not list specifics. “This plan is general. That is the intent,” said Shanna Farley-Judkins, city assistant planner. “We want it to be a dynamic policy that can change.” She added, “We hope that in 10 to 20 years we’ll have cohesive actions.” The resolution takes a three-pronged approach, dividing sustainable activities into categories—economic vitality, environmental stewardship and community health, safety and awareness. The items in these categories are often inter-dependent. For example, economic vitality is connected to property values, which can be affected by harsh storms or flooding. “It is important to have a holistic approach,” said City Manager Dave Durflinger. As part of her presentation, Farley identified a long list of programs and activities already in place that support the concept of sustainability, including single-use bag regulations, take-out food container restrictions, watershed management programs, buy local programs and the electric shuttle system. Mayor Brad Stein said, “It is nice to know we have been working on this for a while, before it was ‘in’ to be sustainable.” During the presentation, Jackie Campbell, the city’s community development director, also talked about what the city is doing to compile information about the rising sea level and its effects on Carpinteria. Campbell said she has been working with scientists and researchers from UCSB, Scripps Institute and a variety of other organizations to collect data. “Science can be used to decide how to move forward,” she said.

Local filmmakers present at SB film fest
While star power will draw the paparazzi to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the 11-day celebration of independent films between Jan. 30 and Feb. 9 will also include filmmakers who spliced their reels together on shoestring budgets and pure passion. Two such independent crews that gained entry into the festival include Carpinteria filmmakers hoping to catch their big breaks. Nathaneal and Christina Matanick will show their short film, “ReMoved,” and Ben Pitterle and Brian Hall will present documentary feature “Driven.” Read on for descriptions.
(Santa Barbara Shorts) Lobero Theater Friday, Feb. 7, 2 p.m. Metro 4 Theater Sunday, Feb. 9, 4:40 p.m.

“Driven” follows swimmers across SB Channel
Filmmakers Ben Pitterle and Brian Hall document the inspirational journeys of three athletes attempting to tackle their goal of swimming across the Santa Barbara Channel. Pitterle, a Carpinteria resident and Program Director of Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, became fascinated with the curious compulsion that leads individuals to attempt swimming great distances. “A lot of people don’t realize that the official rules don’t allow these swimmers to wear wetsuits,” said Pitterle. “These athletes push themselves to their absolute physical and mental limits. The swims can be really inspiring and really scary to watch at the same time.” He described a personal experience as a support kayaker for Ned Denison, a marathon swimmer who set a speed record in 2006 on a swim from Santa “Driven” a film made by Cruz Island to Oxnard. Denison barely Carpinterian Ben Pitterle and Brian finished his swim and ended up recovering Hall will show at Santa Barbara in the hospital with severe hypothermia, International Film Festival. a potentially life threatening condition. Pitterle was left pondering the question, “What drives these athletes?” “Driven” follows three diverse individuals—a single mother of two, a 13-year-old girl and marathon swimming veteran Evan Morrison—who attempted to swim up to 20 miles across the Santa Barbara Channel in the summer of 2012. The subjects attempt to overcome personal obstacles while focusing on preparing for the big swim. For more information, visit marathonswim.com.
“ReMoved,” a short film written, directed and produced by Nathaneal and Christina Matanick and starring Abby White, pictured, will show at Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
ReMoved lands in SBIFF shorts show
Carpinteria filmmakers Nathaneal and Christina Matanick will see their work on two more big screens when “ReMoved” runs as part of the Santa Barbara Shorts program of Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The short film was shot and edited in a one week period as part of the 168 Film Project, a speed filmmaking contest, last year. The Matanicks took home the Best Picture award, and up to $1 million in funding for a future feature film project. Their film stars Carpinteria youngster Abby White and was shot in and around the area. White’s character must navigate the emotional journey of being abruptly yanked from an abusive home life and placed in foster care. Each of the 151 crews entered in the 168 contest were given a Bible verse on which to base the film 10 days before production was to commence. Christina wrote the screenplay, and Nathaneal, a commercial filmmaker by trade, directed and edited the film.
For the record
In the Jan. 23 article “$500K grant maintains local anti-gang programs,” the number of staff positions funded by the grant was misreported. Though 11 Carpinteria Unified School District staff and 16 Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse staff are involved in carrying out the goals of the grant, only three CUSD and 11 CADA staff positions are partially funded with the grant.

Carpinteria earns B grade for tobacco control
The City of Carpinteria earned a grade of B in overall tobacco control from the American Lung Association in 2013, rising to join four other Central Coast municipalities with the top score in the region. The city’s newly tightened tobacco retailer licensing ordinance played a large role in raising its grade from a C, according to the American Lung Association. San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara County, Santa Cruz and Watsonville also earned a B for their overall tobacco control. On Jan. 22, the American Lung Association released its State of Tobacco Control 2014 – California Local Grades,

Federal assistance available for those impacted by drought
Federal drought assistance programs are now available for farmers and small businesses in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties due to the state government’s recent emergency declaration of drought in 27 California counties. “These federal resources will go a long way toward helping Central Coast farmers and small businesses cope with the impacts of the ongoing drought,” Congresswoman Lois Capps said. Farmers and ranchers may be eligible for low interest emergency loans from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency and should visit disaster.fsa.usda.gov to find out more. Small businesses can apply for low-interest federal disaster loans from the United States Small Business Administration. These loans are designed to offset economic losses because of reduced revenues caused by the drought. More information on these programs is available at disasterloan.sba.gov.

CITY COUNCIL: Continued from page 1
Another item on the city council agenda was an update on the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, which is designed to reduce the use of pesticides in city-owned areas. Matthew Roberts, the parks and recreation director, said “The good news is that in 2013 the parks department did not use any pesticides in public parks.” However, the Public Works Department was involved in using an insecticide to control a psyllid infestation in Tipuana tipu trees on Linden and Carpinteria avenues. Several city council members questioned why this had occurred, and Corey Welles, IPM committee member and Lotusland plant health coordinator, said, “I would have loved a chance to review other options.” Roberts said that the IPM program is designed to help the city use the least toxic substance first by allowing the committee to give input. He said that the process was circumvented because the situation was deemed an emergency, but this is not how the system is set up. “It got short circuited,” he said. The IPM report also emphasized the importance, and cost, of gopher abatement. Roberts said that the parks department set and checked gopher traps on at least 77 days and caught 150 gophers. The cost for gopher control for the calendar year was more than $7,000. “It is a pretty expensive gopher program,” he said. In the future, city staff is considering using fumigation with aluminum phosphide, in conjunction with trapping, to help address this problem During the city council meeting, there was also a mid-year review of the budget. Durflinger said, “We are predicting that the city will end the year in the black.” John Thornberry, administrative services director, said that, if predictions are correct, the city will not only end in the black, but will have a $50,650 excess of revenues over expenditures.
This is the United States of America, “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.” Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning (formerly Private Bradley Manning) are certainly brave but not free. They are citizens of the USA, and to many heroes. President Obama could prove he too is a hero by issuing unconditional pardons to both for any charges that may be brought against them.

Low down dirty doggone shame
In response to Karen Harper’s letter, “A doggone shame,” from Jan. 9: helping out a dog with no collar, that had no home, is very commendable. She is not responsible for any driver hitting the dog, as Steve Augerot’s follow-up letter, “A doggone shame part deux,” claimed, and it was in fact a nonsensical thing for Augerot to even assert. My hat’s off to Karen Harper for her compassion and due diligence!

Brown in state of denial
California Governor Jerry Brown used his “State of the State” address to congratulate himself on the state’s recovery. He boasted: there are a million new jobs,
a budgetary surplus in the billions and a $10 minimum wage raise hike. Unfortunately, he ignored problems: high unemployment, massive debt driven by pension obligations, a hyper-expensive high speed rail line and a $67 billion Delta twin tunnel project to move water from the north to the south. On the good side, there is a $3.3 billion dollar surplus, some of which will be saved for lean years. On the bad side, Brown will give nothing back to the taxpayers, but will use it to restore government spending. But, what is Governor Brown doing to grow California’s economy and solve its long-term fiscal problems? Very little, and his current approach is failing. California’s unemployment is among the highest in the U.S. at 8.5 percent, and the middle class is migrating to other states. Furthermore, Brown refuses to face up to California’s massive debt and unfunded liabilities related to powerful public sector unions. Finally, he dwelled on drought conditions and blamed global warming. Never mind there is a cooling trend and today we see frigid conditions in the U.S. and throughout the world. What’s Brown’s solution for fighting so-called global warming? Reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. Would this change climate patterns? Wouldn’t an increase in exploration and production of fossil fuels wipe out our debt and unemployment? So why is California in such denial? Could it be due to media bias, an uninformed public and dishonest, misleading politicians?

Our beloved husband, father and grandfather, the Reverend William A. Hazen, died peacefully at home on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014. Bill had successfully undergone open-heart surgery and treatment for prostate cancer during 2013, and had appeared to be doing well; nevertheless, he was unexpectedly called from this life. He is survived by his wife of almost 57 years, Marlene, and children, Rob (Deolinda), Deborah, Denise (Victor), Diane (Bruce); grandchildren, Kristina, Justin, Christopher, Andrew, Allegra, Hollister, Hutton and great-grandchildren, Angelina and Raymond. He is also survived by his remaining sister, Joanne Thomas. Bill was a native of Los Angeles. He received a B.A. from Occidental College, and an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary. Bill was ordained in 1958 by the Presbytery of Los Angeles at his home church in Los Angeles. Bill served both the First Presbyterian Church of Trenton, N.J. (’58-’59) and Anaheim, CA (’59-’62). He served as Pastor of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church (’62-’67) and of Wilshire Presbyterian Church (’67-’96), both in Los Angeles. He retired in 1996, but continued to give service to the church community on numerous committees, commissions, as Moderator of the Presbytery of the Pacific and as a part-time member of the Presbytery staff for 11 ½ years. His M.F.C.C. license, his counseling background and his experience as a successful urban pastor working in crosscultural settings, made him an invaluable counselor, mentor, advisor and advocate for other pastors and congregations. He will be remembered by his colleagues as hard-working, deeply conscientious, rooted in faith, loving and gentle in spirit, filled with the wisdom that comes from living a life dependent upon God, and always engaged in learning something new along the way. In retirement, Bill and Marlene moved to Carpinteria, a community to which he’d been coming for many years, both as a child during camping vacations with his parents and three sisters, as well as with Marlene and their children. He and Marlene have been active in the Carpinteria community, and Marlene will continue to be grateful for their many friends. One of the other places that was special and much loved by Bill was his property and rustic cabin on the Old West Ranch in the Tehachapi Mountains. During his years as a Presbyterian minister in Los Angeles, he loved to spend time at the cabin studying and writing. Bill frequently said how grateful he was to Marlene’s parents, Bob and Florence Hutton, for locating the parcels that the family purchased on the Old West Ranch. We treasure our memories of Thanksgivings with family and friends at the cabin, and hosting many church related activities. A memorial service for Bill will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1, at 2 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara. In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations can be made to the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara, or to the charity of your choice.
Joseph Goena, Jr. 6/23/1939 – 1/17/2014
Joseph Goena, Jr., also known to us as Joe or Junior, passed away at the age of 74 on Jan. 17, 2014 in Santa Barbara, Calif. He was born to the late Joe and Nadine Goena on June 23, 1939 in Carpinteria, Calif. He attended Main Elementary School and graduated from Carpinteria Union High School in 1958. He grew up in the Carpinteria Valley wandering the foothills and creeks with his friends. During his high school summers, he worked for the Los Padres Hot Shot Crew. He left Carpinteria to work as a horse groomer following the polo circuit to Palm Springs, Texas and Florida and worked on horse ranches in San Jose and Arizona. After an injury, he returned to Carpinteria and on his bike, he continued his wanderings downtown and to the beach. He was preceded in death by his sister Annabella Goena. He is survived by five sisters and numerous family members, including aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins. Graveside services were held on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014 at Carpinteria Cemetery presided over by Msgr. Martini of St. Joseph Church. Welch-Ryce-Haider Mortuary provided other services. Happy trails, Junior.
Manuel “Joseph” Nova 9/10/1926 - 12/30/2013

Anita S. Quiroga 12/15/1923 – 1/23/2014
Our mother, Anita S. Quiroga, 90, finished her life on this earth o n T h u r s d a y, Jan. 23, 2014 at her residence in Carpinteria, to be with the Lord and her family and Love. She passed away peacefully with the graceful stroke of God’s gentle hand, her family by her side as her spirit ascended to Heaven. Anita was born on Dec. 15, 1923 in Carpinteria, Calif. She attended local schools and was a “True Carpinteria Warrior.” She loved her family unconditionally through “thick and thin” and never passed judgement on other persons or situations. Her house was always open to family and friends any time of the day. Friends would come and talk for hours or just to have “un taco.” Anita had the tendency to help everyone see the other side of their problems—to see the good in things, to find the “silver lining” in every situation. In her eyes, “anything was correctable except death,” because once you are gone, you could never say, “I’m sorry.” She loved her pets, KOA and Nino. Anita is survived by her children: Linda A. Hernandez (Tom), Alicia M. Gutierrez (Jose), Joseph B. Quiroga, Richard M. Quiroga (Lisa), Denise M. Torres (daughter-in-law); brother Louis G. Soto (Angela); brother-in-law Ernest P.

City work meeting sets aggressive 2014 agenda By PeteR DugRé
The Carpinteria City Council and city administrators gathered for a meeting of the municipal minds on Jan. 25 to lay out city priorities for the year that lies ahead. Each department, as follows, previewed the workload that will likely consume its collective resources for 2014. Following the five-hour session, the council unanimously approved the 100-plus page Annual Work Program.
Under the City Administration and Legislative Policy workload detailed by City Manager Dave Durflinger, highlights included the future formation of a committee to plan for the city’s 50th anniversary, which will occur in September 2015. Resident John Wullbrandt has been driving the efforts, and Durflinger said a committee may be formed soon to plan activities for a yearlong tribute to Carpinteria’s 1965 incorporation that could begin as soon as September 2014. Durflinger also spoke about a refocusing of the city’s economic vitality efforts. As a response to the recession, the city had begun the monthly First Friday celebrations to promote businesses in 2010. Durflinger indicated that city involvement with First Friday will be scaled back this year, and the city-sponsored side of the efforts might be shifted to creating a City of Carpinteria application compatible with smart phones and tablets. Residents could report issues using the app, and tourists could be connected with businesses. Exact details and costs of the proposed app were scant at the Jan. 25 meeting, and staff said it would deliver a formal proposal to the city council in the near future. Of First Friday, Durflinger said, “It was a great tool to use and we spent a lot of time getting it up and running.” He continued, “First Friday will undoubtedly continue to be a slice of the pie,” of the city’s ongoing economic vitality efforts.
Lieutenant Brad McVay of Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office and Chief of Carpinteria police services said a priority of his agency is to work with other local public safety agencies in establishing a local emergency operations center. McVay commented that the goal is to work with a committee to study the issue long term. “As the city develops, (an emergency operations center) is a necessary function,” he commented. Another ongoing goal of the department is community outreach, he said. One such effort was the recent Coffee with a Cop series, an example of a forum designed to “let the community know that we’re going to be out there to discuss whatever you want, without an agenda,” McVay said. New ideas coming from the sheriff’s office are adding foot patrol downtown and inviting volunteer officers from the community to help with local law enforcement. McVay said the upside of patrolling by foot is having approachable officers on the street, but the downside is reduced emergency response time. He did not unveil details on when volunteer officer programs might begin, but commented that volunteers could represent an important connection between the department and community. Department critics have lamented that contracting police service to the sheriff’s office diminishes the bond between police and the community. Panhandlers are a growing issue, according to McVay. He recommended not providing money to panhandlers, and rather directing the money to agencies designed to help the poor. “We need to
establish that it’s not okay to harass our community,” he said, adding that officers attempt to direct panhandlers toward help. If Carpinteria gains a reputation for being soft on panhandlers and as a lucrative place to beg, then the problem will get worse, he said.
ous states of disrepair, up to code. The fire district has assisted in inspections as well as law enforcement for security needs at the notoriously problem-filled properties. The city has kept such extensive records it “almost required a new software system” to organize it all, according to Campbell.
Community Development Department
Public Works Department
Community Development Director Jackie Campbell commented that the workload has been steady within her department, and much of it is processing ongoing development projects initiated in the prior year.
Two major development projects continuing to require CDD time are resort hotels at the east end of Carpinteria Avenue on the property known as Bluffs III, or Thunderbowl. CDD has met with both developers and expects a conceptual review application for a resort on 21 acres there early this year. The developer, Blue Ridge, is currently doing its due diligence research for environmental constraints at the site. The most recent plan for the site, conceptually reviewed by the city in 2012, never made it to the formal application stages. Also, continued dialogue has occurred for a proposed mixed-use development by Barton Myers adjacent to S&S Seeds in the area known to city planners as Bluffs II. That project came before a joint meeting of the city council and city planning commission in late 2013 and was found to be generally incompatible with the corporate offices surrounding it.
West Via Real action
On the west end of the city on Via Real, a proposal to erect two hotels at the Church of the Nazarene property remains in conceptual review. Developers have modified plans—more closely linking the two hotels and adding underground parking—since preliminary reviews and are expected to present updated versions soon. Also on Via Real, Carpinteria Camper Park should begin its conversion into Casa De Las Flores apartments as soon as February. The low-income housing project is being developed by Peoples’ Self-Help Housing. “It’s an interesting cluster on Via Real where we haven’t seen activity in a while,” commented Campbell of the multiple projects in that area.
Oil in the future?
Oil development proposed by Carone and Venoco remain in the application pipeline. Carone’s proposal to drill up to 25 offshore wells from platform Hogan has been held up at State Lands Commission due to claims by the state that Carone owes fees. Venoco’s Paredon Project application redux was deemed incomplete last year and city planners are awaiting its return. As proposed, Paredon would require a major land-use overhaul to allow drilling from onshore property within the city into offshore reserves from the Carpinteria Oil and Gas Processing Facility.
The Code Compliance arm of the CDD is still doggedly pursuing landlord Dario Pini’s five properties near Carpinteria Avenue and Concha Loma. Campbell commented that some of the properties, a mix between apartments and motels, are nearly 90 percent complete in the quest to bring the structures, found to be in vari-
Aside from its duties of keeping the city tidy and well maintained, the Department of Public Works is busy assisting in the upcoming Caltrans Interchange Project. Public Works Director Charlie Ebeling called his department a “project partner and regulator” for the Caltrans project that will completely alter the way traffic circulates in Carpinteria. “The city has had an increasingly large, maybe unusual, role in delivering the Caltrans project,” Ebeling said. He said the benefits of such an undertaking are keeping the city informed and positioned to deliver a project suiting local interests. Central to partnering with Caltrans is Ebeling’s ongoing communication with FEMA to establish updated floodplain maps. Replacement of bridges around Carpinteria Creek, both as part of the Caltrans project and the city’s replacement of the Carpinteria Avenue bridge over the creek, will alter the historical floodplain. FEMA, the agency in charge of drawing up federal flood zones and regulating who must have flood insurance, can hold up the interchange project while modeling what will happen to the local flood plain. Ebeling hopes to avert any delays in the environmental review of the interchange project.
One way coming to Ash Avenue
Public works is also updating its capital improvement and maintenance plans this year. One major part of its project schedule could be reconfiguring Ash Avenue in the beach neighborhood. Ebeling floated an initial proposal to make the street one way to vehicle traffic and add angled parking spaces along the salt marsh side of the road. The one way section would direct traffic from the beach toward the mountains between Sandyland Road and 3rd Street.
Speed limit, municipal codes
Ebeling said that Public Works will also be updating speed limits on its regular five-year schedule as part of an overall update to municipal code. Public works will also review permitting costs and obligations for utilities and other agencies conducting work within the city.
Parks & Rec
Rail-centric park development
The Parks and Recreation Department must decide what to do with its recently acquired land near the railroad crossing at Linden Avenue and along 5th Street bordering the tracks. Department director Matt Roberts commented that the city has already received a grant for a community garden and “has a budget to go ahead with design.” It remains to be seen whether a skate park will be incorporated into that design. Roberts recently gained approval to conduct an internal feasibility study for a skate park either at the 5th Street location or elsewhere, depending on findings. Other ideas for improvements to the area are a railroad undercrossing at Holly Avenue, added links to the Coastal Trail and more beach parking. Roberts com-
mented that if a building is installed at any of the city properties bordering the railroad tracks, it would likely have to be erected in the existing parking lot, due to deed restrictions at the more recently acquired parcels.
Roberts also said that Carpinteria Community Pool improvements are nearly underway. The city is ready to go to bid on installation of an ozone system as an alternative to chlorine treatment of pool water. The cost to get the ozone up and running would be $45,000, but annual savings should be $5,000 or 75 percent of chlorine costs. Parks and Rec is also interested in pursuing solar power to further cut costs at the pool.
City news bites
Improvements to Seaside Park, the city’s property next to the library, should go out to bid in coming weeks as well. Longterm Parks and Rec plans also include improvements at City Hall, updating the site to ADA complience, installing waterwise landscaping and potentially adding a sheriff’s station where the unused roller rink sits. At Monte Vista Park, the city hopes to drill a well to offset nearly $10,000 in irrigation costs. Roberts, also a boardmember with Carpinteria Valley Water District, commented that the groundwater basin to be tapped for Monte Vista irrigation would not interfere with CVWD supplies.
• Brian Jones said, “Find creative solutioned to fill 700 Linden Avenue.” He suggests an artisans outlet for the former Austin’s Hardware site. • Jim Taylor asked that that city pass a resolution against hydraulic fracturing in conjunction with other cities like San Francisco. The moratorium would seek to end the controversial method of extracting oil until further studies on its environmental impacts can be completed. City Councilman Al Clark urged passing such a resolution as soon as possible. • Linda Reimel brought up tree issues on El Carro Lane near Casitas Pass Road. Roots are buckling curbs and ruining sewer lines. The city tree advisory board denied a request in September 2013 to remove the trees. Similar issues on Camino Trillado and in downtown led Mayor Brad Stein to comment that “it’s becoming a sort of epidemic.” • Miguel Checa urged the city to view American Planning Association Sustainable Cities plans as a guiding document. He also recommended pursuing a neighborhood clinic and alternative to the annual construction of a beach berm in light of sea level rise. • Patty Manuras asked that the city adapt to new retail spaces on west Carpinteria Avenue by finding ways to slow traffic there coming off the freeway and installing a crosswalk. Ebeling said that’s on the traffic safety committee agenda soon. • Vera Bensen asked that bluffs be carefully developed. Thunderbowl is “designated for a huge hotel and conference center. I hope it’s designed so it doesn’t look like a huge hotel and conference center,” she said while suggesting cabins.

living mindfully DAVE MOCHEL
Meaning and happiness Carpinteria. A small, beach town with one of the mildest climates in the United States. The sunshine, the ocean, the mountains and the friendly, open people can make this a wonderfully pleasant place to be. But there is more to life than just basking in the comforts of this coastal paradise. Aristotle identified the good life as one of meaning, contribution and growth. The Greeks referred to this form of wellbeing as eudaimonia. Centuries later, the American transcendentalists Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson made a compelling argument for the importance of “the examined life.” The 19th century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche argued that having a compelling “why” in your life could get you through almost anything. Psychologist, Holocaust survivor and author of “Man’s Search for Meaning” Viktor Frankl noted that people who had a reason to live, and who concerned themselves with the welfare of others, fared best in the Nazi concentration camps. In the last six or seven decades, modern society has become increasingly focused on the experience of pleasure and comfort—a phenomenon the Greeks called hedonic happiness. Recent research at Stanford University suggests that there is a distinction between meaning and happiness, and that both are important for physical and psychological health. Other research indicates that where you place your focus makes a difference. Where hedonic happiness is more focused on what you can get, eudaimonic wellbeing emphasizes what you have to offer. It turns out that living a meaningful life that is focused on growth and contribution often leads to greater hedonic happiness, whereas the pursuit of pleasure and comfort does not necessarily offer greater meaning. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin found that people who emphasized eudaimonic wellbeing
had better overall health than those who put greater energy into pursuing pleasurable circumstances. In Japan, the word “ikigai” means “a reason to get up in the morning.” Studies have found that people who can readily identify the ikigai in their lives tend to live longer with a higher quality of life than those who cannot. Another Japanese word, “kaizen,” refers to “continual change for the best.” Social scientists have found that if you are employed at a company that embraces the kaizen philosophy, you are more likely to enjoy your job and be more productive than workers at other companies. In short, cultivating both enjoyment and meaning in life is a formula for peak performance and overall wellbeing. Mindfulness is a wonderful practice for getting the most out of each moment. Stopping, paying attention to your breath and reflecting on how incredible it is that you even exist—this simple act can make a big difference in your life. This practice activates networks in the brain that are designed to perceive opportunities and connections. This practice leads to the production of brain chemicals (such as dopamine, oxytocin and nitric oxide) that induce both relaxation and engagement. Deliberately and consistently practicing mindfulness changes the actual structure and function of your brain. Finding meaning and happiness in life is a skill that you can master moment by moment. When will you begin? Dave Mochel has taught classes in neuroscience, wellbeing and leadership for 25 years. He works with individuals, schools and businesses to help them focus their attention and energy to enhance performance, reduce stress and maximize quality of life.

Rotary’s big show Co-directors David Powdrell and Roland Rotz share an infectious enthusiasm for this year’s Rotary Talent Showcase, a show that brings dozens of exemplary acts to MARK BRICKLEY a Carpinteria stage. “The show is getting better each year,” Powdrell said. “We’re just so lucky the talent is so good.” Elaborating on the Rotary Showcase lineup, Powdrell said, “Of the 24 acts we’ve selected, 12 are new, including magician Tom Tourville, who is a member of Hollywood’s Magic Castle. His levitation act is mind-boggling. Another new act is our husband and wife vaudeville comedy team who’ve worked on cruise ships.” “We also feature several teen musicians who study with local piano teacher Gail Michelson. Their skills are astounding. Our oldest performer is 95-year-old harmonica whiz Lyman Barrett,” Rotz added. The fifth annual Rotary Talent Showcase will take place on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Carpinteria’s Plaza Playhouse Theater, 4916 Carpinteria Ave. This year’s event will also feature several outstanding young artists from past shows including Carpinteria vocalists Xenia Flores, Jamey Geston and the Wasserman sisters. Flores will sing an original composition titled “Home.” “The song is about two old friends who’ve been out of touch. Once they start talking it’s like they’ve never been apart,” Flores said. Geston will reprise the song “Telescope” from T.V. show Nashville. She will perform with guest singer Adele Shraiman. Sarina Wasserman, 14, and 9-year-old sister Leora will blend their flawless harmonies on “Somewhere Only We Know” written by English rock band Kean. “Our professional audio techs make the show run seamlessly. There’s no dead time between acts,” Powdrell said. The show’s Master of Ceremonies will be KEYT news reporter John Palminteri. His quick wit and upbeat personality have made him the area’s most sought after host. The showcase will be filmed by local videographer Larry Nimmer. Rotz, who is also the Rotary Club’s president, said that all of the organization’s 39 members play a role in the annual event. “Some are greeters at the front door. Others are servers, sweepers and ushers. The show’s financial goal is to provide scholarships to Carpinteria High School seniors and musical instruments to our middle school students. This year Rotary will fund a $2,500 scholarship. We hope our younger musicians will someday participate in Carpinteria High School’s music program.” You never know what creative co-directors Rotz and Powdrell will do onstage themselves. Last year they juggled! Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under. Tickets are available at plazatheater.com, Montecito Bank & 2014 Rotary Talent Showcase performers collage by David Powdrell Trust’s Carpinteria branch and Curious Cup Bookstore.

Beatles Invasion Weekend
On Feb. 8 and 9, Carpinteria’s Plaza Playhouse Theater will present its Beatles Invasion Weekend. Local pop legends The Tearaways will appear in concert on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. The band’s breakout single “Jessica Something” was hailed as one of 1997’s top recordings. Since then, The Tearaways have toured Europe and the U.S. performing as ‘60s English act Badfinger. Their shows have have supported Badfinger’s only surviving guitarist Joey Molland. The Tearaways’ show will feature both rare Beatles’ covers and the Fab Four’s biggest hits. The Beatles extravaganza is being coordinated by local radio personality Peter Bie who is also a member of the Plaza Theater’s board of directors. The Saturday night concert will be preceded by a 7 p.m. Q&A with Dennis Mitchell whose syndicated radio program “Breakfast With The Beatles” is heard on radio stations throughout the U.S. and England. The evening will include raffle giveaways and the opportunity to bid on a framed serigraph featuring handwritten lyrics to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” signed by John Lennon. A showing of “A Hard Day’s Night” will conclude the evening. All inclusive tickets are $20 at plazatheater.com and at the door. On Sunday, Feb. 9 at 3:30 p.m. the Plaza Theater’s Beatles tribute continues with a Q&A discussion featuring rock titan Alan Parsons. In the early ’60s, Parsons was a recording engineer at London’s Abbey Road Studios and helped record Beatles classics “Get Back,” “Lady Madonna” and “Long and Winding Road.” He also was present at the band’s final rooftop concert at Apple Records Studios in 1969. This is a rare opportunity to hear Parsons’ first-hand stories about working with the era’s most creative band. “Beatles Breakfast” radio host Dennis Mitchell will interview Parsons. Sunday’s festivities will culminate at 5 p.m. with a showing of The Beatles first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” The complete show is timed to begin exactly 50 years after its original broadcast on Feb. 9, 1964. That evening 73 million viewers (about half the U.S. population) watched The Beatles perform five songs on the live telecast, “All My Loving,” “Til There Was You,” She Loves You,” “I Saw Her Standing There” and “I Want To Hold Your Hand.” Tickets to Parsons’ Q&A and the Ed Sullivan/Beatles show are $12 at plazatheater.com and at the door.

Local reader Deron Thompson submitted this painting by Washington artist David Marty. He purchased it last October at a thrift store in Palo Alto, Calif. for $15.
Woodsy windfall the art appraiser ALISSA CAMPBELL David Marty (1951- ) was born in Northern California. He studied at Art Center College of Design, Biola University and the Scottsdale Artists School. His landscape paintings are influenced by the French and California Impressionist style. His works attempt to capture atmospheric contrasts of light and shadow. After a bit of digging in my auction record databases, I found that David Marty’s painting have sold for as little as $375 and as much as $7,500. While auctions in general tend to be mercurial, this is a wide range of pricing for an artist. In the case of Marty, it appears his later, more detailed, tonalist paintings demand the highest prices—while his early works sell for less. Although undated, this painting is likely an early work by the artist. It depicts a dark forest likely in the Pacific Northwest, where Marty has spent most of his life. Although well-painted, it does not have the luminosity that appears in some of Marty’s later works. He is well-known for his skill at painting atmospheric skies, which unfortunately this painting does not have. Still, a painting of this quality in excellent condition and of this large size (20 inches by 20 inches) by Marty would likely warrant an auction estimate as high as $1,000-$3,000. A comparable painting entitled “Golden Touch” by Marty recently sold at auction in 2013 for $3,250.
INK ON PAPER... IT'S WHAT WE’RE GOOD AT!
I was also able to find galleries selling Marty’s work. Retail prices can be as much as 50 percent higher than auction values and would likely be priced on the higher end if sold in a gallery. If this were appraised for resale purposes it would be estimated to have a Fair Market Value* of approximately $1,500$2,000. A treasure indeed! Please note, this is not an official appraisal. It is for informational purposes only. An appraisal is a legal document, generally for insurance purposes, written by a qualified expert who has examined the artwork in-person and is paid for by the owner of the item. An appraisal involves an extensive amount of research to establish authenticity, provenance, composition, method of construction, and other important attributes of a particular object. This article is restricted-use and is intended for educational purposes only. *Fair Market Value is defined as “the price at which the property would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to by or to sell and both having reasonable knowledge of relevant facts.” READERS: We need your submissions!

The work of Michael Fish Fischer, photographs representing “the collision of reality and abstraction,” according to the artist, will serve as an eyecatching pairing to beer tasting through March 8 at Island Brewing Company, 5049 6th Street. Fish Fischer, “Big Yellow” by Michael Fish Fischer who has shown locally and in Santa Barbara, points the lens at his boots to “take a moment in time and ﬂatten three-dimensional space into pure shape, color and composition,” he stated. The work, although abstract and reality bending, is not embellished with Photoshop. For more information, call IBC at 745-8272.

All of the players fought to the end and for that I am proud of their efforts.” Alexa Benitez hit a 20-yard shot into the upper corner of the net to make the score 2-1 minutes before halftime. The Warriors’ record fell to 5-7-1 overall and 0-5 in TVL.

The Boys & Girls Club of Carpinteria has introduced a new program that every member can easily be a part of all by signing in daily. Club 105 was initially introduced in the Tennessee Valley Club during the spring of 2013 after a study came out showing youth who attended a Boys & Girls Club for 105 days a year were twice as likely as their peers to graduate from high school. “Club 105 shows not only that our youth beneﬁt directly from programming but they also beneﬁt by just being a member, by having a safe, caring, fun place to go after school,” stated Club Director Jamie Collins. Club 105 was launched locally in July and has since recognized 68 members who reached the halfway point of their 105-day goal.

CONTRACTOR’S LICENSE CLASSIFICATION: In accordance with the provisions of California Public Contract Code Section 3300, the City has determined that the Bidder shall possess a valid Class A license at the time of the bid opening, time of award and at all times during performance of the work. Failure to possess the specified license shall render the Bid as non-responsive and shall act as a bar to award of the Contract to any bidder not possessing such license at the time of the bid opening. Bidders are advised that, as required by federal law, the State has established a statewide overall DBE goal. This Agency federal-aid contract is considered to be part of the statewide overall DBE goal. The Agency is required to report to Caltrans on DBE participation for all Federalaid contracts each year so that attainment efforts may be evaluated. A prebid meeting is scheduled for 10:00 AM, February 12, 2014 at Carpinteria City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Avenue, Carpinteria, CA This meeting is to inform bidders of project requirements and subcontractors of subcontracting and material supply opportunities.

The latest prevailing wage rates are available from the California Department of industrial relations and by visiting the following website: http:// www.dir.ca.gov/oprl/2012-2/PwD/index. htm. In addition, the Contractor shall be responsible for compliance with requirements of Section l777.5 of the California labor Code relating to apprentices of public works contracts. Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in the books entitled “Proposal and Contract.” if there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of industrial relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes “helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question. The Bidder shall comply with all applicable provisions of section 16100 to Title 8 of the California Code of regulations, which require Contractor to keep accurate records of the work performed as provided in labor Code section 1812, to allow City to inspect Bidder’s payroll records pursuant to Labor Code section 1776 and section 16400(e) of Title 8 of the California Code of regulations, and to comply with all other requirements imposed by law.

Saddle RackS Sugar tank
A man who moved on from his exgirlfriend was allegedly still getting sugar from her, only now it was deposited in his gas tank. He reported the alleged vandalism on Jan. 19, and that it happened outside his new girlfriend’s place on Jacaranda Way. He suspected the scorned ex was involved with the vandalism. The man told deputies his ex texted him, “These crazy phools from the Ave. were just bragging about finding your car ... and said they left you a present.” Upon receiving the text, the man inspected his vehicle and found a white granular substance on the ground and in the gas tank port. A taste test led the man to believe it was sugar. An auto mechanic estimated that repairs would cost between $200 and $400. The girlfriend admitted to hearing that some guys had targeted her ex’s car. She heard about it after the fact, she said. Deputies attempted to interrogate her further about the perpetrators of the alleged crime, but she did not give direct answers. She then ended the phone conversation. Deputies believed she was involved enough in the crime to warrant charges, so the report was forwarded to the district attorney’s office for review.
Dance the night away
A deputy conducting a “premise check” at a Via Real motel observed a woman after midnight on Jan. 18 waving her arms continuously in the lobby while engaged in a conversation with the clerk. The deputy described the jerky motion as dancing, and he went inside to figure out what possessed the woman to move in such a way. Immediately the deputy noticed the woman’s enlarged pupils did not respond to changes in lighting. The woman, 42, with an Ojai address, admitted to being on probation and that if drug tested she would most likely fail due to recent meth use. She allowed the deputy to search her purse, and he found multiple pill bottles, one of which contained a baggy of what
appeared to be meth. After seeing what the deputy had found, the woman reportedly said, “The cartel planted it there.” Despite the woman’s cartel alibi, the deputy arrested her for possession.

It’s what you don’t see in this picture that matters. Read on.
Feed the soil garden gossip CHRIS & LISA CULLEN “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life and I’m feeling good” ––Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse Yeah! PMA! Positive Mental Attitude! It’s a new year, and it’s time to put new life into your garden. And to do this you need to start with the soil. The secret to a healthier garden is healthy soil, and healthy soil is active and full of life.
Sometimes life is a bummer
It’s common knowledge that chemical fertilizer kills your soil, which means that it kills the microorganisms, worms, good fungi, etc. that are vital to soil health and vitality. These are the critters we are trying to entice and attract to our gardens; you could say they are the guests of honor at the banquet. If chemical fertilizers harm the soil, imagine what pesticides and fungicides are doing. Yikes! I hate to be a killjoy, but here’s the news. Even if you aren’t using chemicals in your garden, in most cases, you’re still using water that has been treated with chlorine. Chlorinated water kills microorganisms, and since we haven’t had any significant rain for a couple of years, our plants are getting nothing but the life killing water. That means that you need to continually add life to your soil to keep the party going.
Do you know exactly what your soil needs? Do you know if the various nutrients are in balance? Unless you do regular soil testing, you probably don’t know the answers to those questions. Simply, a soil test is like a blood test in that it tells you what elements are present and even quantifies the life in your soil. This is money well spent. Why give your garden something it doesn’t need? Get a soil test and give it exactly and only what
it does need. Carpinterians George and Catherine Schnackenberg, owners of Agri-Turf Supplies (2257 Las Positas Road in Santa Barbara), will get your soil tested, explain the results and then recommend treatments to deal with any imbalances the test reveals.
Bringing life to the party
Now that you have a soil test and know exactly what nutrients your garden needs, you can focus on bringing life to the party. The easiest way to do this is with compost and compost tea. Compost is a living thing; it is teeming with life and nutrition and is the key to bringing it all together. You see, you can put various nutrients in your soil, but without a bunch of the tiny critters eating it up, your party will be a flop. Composting is a fun thing to do if you have the time and space. I have to admit, I don’t take the time to make my own compost, but I do know where to get it. We are very fortunate to have a few local guys making compost and compost tea the old fashioned way. Oscar Carmona of Healing Grounds Bio-Dynamic Nursery is making compost, which he sells at the Saturday Farmer’s Market. Or you can order some by calling Oscar at 6893044. There’s also local boy Rico Delgado making a beautiful product, 689-9890. There are larger suppliers of compost like Agri-Turf in Santa Barbara and Agromin in Oxnard. Agri-Turf Supplies and All Around Landscape Supply in Carpinteria both make compost tea. Note: When using compost tea, allow your water to sit overnight until chlorine evaporates then add compost tea. Apply compost and compost tea regularly, and let the party begin! Until next time, fill your garden with joy (and life)! ––Lisa and Chris Chris and Lisa Cullen, owners of Montecito Landscape, have been creating beautiful gardens for over 40 years. Listen to Garden Gossip radio show on AM1290 every Friday at 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. and Saturday at 11 a.m. Do you have a question about your garden?

Robitailles celebrate 61 years
Gutierres clan climb Mayan ruins
A recent cruise by the Gutierres family landed the Carpinterians in the scenic environs of Costa Maya, Mexico. They found that long before Costa Maya was a hot spot for paradise-seeking travelers, the Mayan civilization had occupied the area. The Gutierres clan climbed the Chacchoben Mayan ruins, and then to take a breather, they relaxed at a beach club with Coastal View News. The trip included many firsts for the family, including the first flight for the youngest Gutierres and the first cruise for all.

Guy and Carmen Robitaille will celebrate their 61st wedding anniversary this week. They were married Jan. 31, 1953 at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Los Angeles. The couple, who founded Robitaille’s Fine Candies, moved to Carpinteria in 1959. Guy and Carmen have four children, 14 grandchildren and one greatgrandchild. Guy is also celebrating his 85th birthday on Jan. 30.
What’s new at the harbor seal rookery? The following counts taken from Jan. 20 through Jan. 26 were compiled from Carpinteria Seal Watch volunteer reports. Carpinteria harbor seal beach closure runs from Dec. 1 to June 1 each year. Sealwatch volunteers are still welcome to sign up by calling 684-2247.
High Adult Count
High Pup Count
Visitors totaled 1,385, including people from the Ukraine, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Brazil. Represented states included Illinois, Maryland, Colorado, Massachusetts, Iowa, Washington, Washington D.C., Wyoming, Oregon and New York.
The seals were scared into or towards the ocean by pier activity four times, blufftop noise twice and beach walkers once.
Natural History Notes
Carpinteria harbor seal counts in the 1980s often exceeded 200; because the seals were not protected they were seen less often in the daytime. There were several counts the past three years in excess of 400, although most springtime counts have been in the 100 to 200 range. Harbor seals are far less abundant than sea lions and elephant seals. There are about 10 times as many sea lions in Southern California (300,000) as there are harbor seals in the whole state (30,000). Carpinteria harbor seals represent something in the range of 1 percent of the sea lion/elephant seal population in the Santa Barbara area.
The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. Call 684-2247 or email sealwatch@ hotmail.com if you are interested in volunteering.
