School portables in poor condition
Twist and shout
District considers replacement with modulars By Lea BoyD
“The intention when [portables] are installed is that they are temporary. They are not, and have never been, intended to be permanent, and yet we have portables on our school sites dating from the 1960s going forward.”
Hopes that most of Carpinteria unified School district’s portables could serve as classrooms for another decade or more were dashed on Feb. 4, when the board of education learned at a special meeting that 51 of the district’s 63 temporary structures had been recommended for demolition as soon as possible. An assessment of CuSd’s portables was requested by the board in order to better inform the district’s draft facilities master plan, a list of top priority projects that the district will likely seek to fund through a bond measure in this November election. When first presented to the board last November, the draft facilities plan included $60 million in district-wide projects that ranged from a new science ––assistant wing at Carpinteria High Superintendent School to reconfigured Cindy abbott parking lots at the elementary schools. the precise condition of the portable classrooms, which exist at each school site but are most abundant at Canalino and CHS, was uncertain, and the district contracted an independent study of the structures by its former facilities manager david Weniger to determine how critically they need replacing. “the intention when they are installed is that they are temporary,” Assistant Superintendent Cindy Abbott said of the portables. “they are not, and have never been, intended to be permanent, and yet we have portables on our school sites dating from the 1960s going forward.” Portables from the 1960s have proven to be in better condition that those purchased in the last 20 years. Weniger stressed that the quality of building materials in portables has plummeted over the years. “All of these portables can be reconditioned, but when we get done we’ll still have poured a lot of money

Planners approve Sanitary District upgrades, IBC expansion By Peter Dugré
the City of Carpinteria Planning Commission used its stamp of approval twice on Feb. 3 when reviewing plans to upgrade the process by which area wastewater is handled and when supporting island brewing Company’s plans to expand. As a result, Carpinteria Sanitary district can install new digester tanks, a move that will likely reduce the potential for sewage odors to roam away from CSd’s processing facility. And ibC will be able to accommodate more beer tasters while brewing more to taste. CSd General manager Craig murray called plans to remove two over 50-year-old digesters at the 5351 6th Street plant “the final piece of the puzzle” in a complete overhaul and modernization of equipment and processing methods that began in 1993. “We are putting in state of the art equipment in terms of diffusion and aeration blowers … so from a process control standpoint and odor generation standpoint, we fully expect the new tanks and new process will be markedly
better than what we have now,” murray told planning commissioners. Since the public utilities project does not increase capacity at the sewage treatment facility, which has been rated at 2 million gallons per day since its inception, planners agreed with the CSD finding that the proposal was exempt from an environmental impact Report under CeQA. instead, planners considered the removal of old digester tanks and related chemical storage facilities in exchange for the newer equipment “a moving of structures” within the same established footprint, according to staff reports. the unanimous planning commission issued the Coastal development Permit while restricting construction hours to monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. murray anticipated that ground would break soon on the $5 million dollar project to install the new aerated sludge holding tanks.

Toro Canyon brush fire suppressed quickly
An early morning brush fire on Feb. 11 at 1210 Toro Canyon Road burned a 100 by 50-foot area before being extinguished by responding fire agencies. Eight engines from Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District, Montecito Fire Protection District, Santa Barbara City Fire and Santa Barbara County Fire arrived to fight the fire, which was knocked down within an hour. There were no injuries. The cause appears to be arching power lines, and Southern California Edison is conducting an investigation.

Fire victims move into new home
George and Nicole Juarez, who lost their San Roque mobile home to an electrical fire on Oct. 21, moved into a new mobile home this week. The couple and their four sons will open their new home to the community on Friday, Feb. 14, from 4 to 9 p.m. as a means of expressing gratitude to everyone who supported them during their crisis. The family lost its home and all of its belongings in the fire, and has since moved from hotel to short term rental eight times. According to Nicole, the outpouring of support from Carpinterians has made the difficult time manageable. “It’s the small towns that really come together when you need them,” she said. For details on the open house, call Nicole at 259-5445.
Local electrician places third in national competition
Carpinteria electrician Noe Lopez came home from Las Vegas last week $1,000 richer after placing third in a nationwide competition to install a ventilation fan in the fastest time. Lopez, who works for Radis Electric, finished the installation in just over five minutes. The first-place finisher completed the task in 4:14 and won a new Ford truck. The final competition brought together eight contractors who had eliminated hundreds of other contestants in 60 preliminary contests around the country.
Scammers pose as Sheriff’s Office staff
The newest phone scam to arrive in Santa Barbara County is one in which the caller claims to be a Sheriff’s Office employee who is alerting the citizen of an outstanding warrant and claiming that a fine must be paid immediately or the resident will be arrested. The victim is then instructed to wire money or use a pre-paid credit card to pay the fee. By manipulating the caller identification system, the phone call appears to be coming from the Sheriff’s Office. Additionally, through internet research, the caller often has personal information about the victim. In its warning for the new scam, the Sheriff’s Department noted that it does not attempt to call residents who have warrants.

Council supports new payment plan for parking fees By Cat Neushul
The Carpinteria City Council took a step toward easing the burden of parking fees on new businesses in the Downtown T at its Feb. 10 meeting by creating a payment plan option on Downtown Parking Development Impact Fees, which can hit businesses with an over $5,000 charge per parking spot. The council voted unanimously to approve the installment plan as a way to make downtown a more inviting place to set up shop. The Downtown Parking Development Impact Fee (DIF) is one of 11 such fees that are designed to offset the demands placed on public facilities by development. City Manager Dave Durflinger said the city adopted the parking development fee in 2002 to build up funds to provide additional parking. “It’s one way to get public parking lots built downtown,” he said. The fee affects businesses located in the Downtown T (Carpinteria Avenue between Palm and Holly avenues, and Linden Avenue between Carpinteria Avenue and Dorrance Way), and is triggered when an establishment intensifies its use, for example, by converting from a retail location to a restaurant. While the fees were initially set at $4,396 per parking stall, they went up to $23,863 by 2011. During the national recession, however, this fee was seen as a possible deterrent to business growth, and was reduced. At this time, it is $5,189 per space. This temporary reduction is set to expire June 30, if not renewed. For some businesses, even the reduced fees are daunting. Alex Hamadi, owner
of Beach Bowl, a healthy café set to open soon on Linden Avenue, estimated that he would have to pay the city $10,000 in parking development fees to offset seating in his eatery (city staff has calculated that this fee could be closer to $26,000). In a letter to the city, he said, “This amount is certainly a hefty amount to pay in one shot, however, if broken up into several payments, the amount would be more reasonable.” Durflinger said that many other cities, such as San Diego, Santa Rosa and Anaheim, provide payment plans. In voting to adopt a payment plan, city council members reiterated their desire to promote small and unique businesses. Mayor Brad Stein said, “We want to do anything we can do as a city to support small businesses.” He added, “We want to make our downtown unique.” During the meeting, the city council also voted unanimously to allocate funds from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program to two local organizations. Peoples’ Self-Help Housing received $10,252 to support its Housing the Homeless program and $10, 252 for its Youth Enhancement Program for LowIncome Youth. A group of people, including children, attended the city council meeting to show their support for Peoples’, an organization dedicated to ending homelessness and encouraging independent living. The nonprofit provides counseling services, medical assistance and emergency food supplies, among other things. The
organization also has a program that provides year-round educational support for parents and children living in the Chapel Court and Dahlia Court apartment complexes. Councilman Fred Shaw said, “We are really pleased that we can give money to Peoples’ Self-Help Housing.” He added, “They do a marvelous job of helping kids right up through high school to achieve their goals.” The other recipient of the block grant funds was the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, which received $2,278 to pay for Freedom Warming Centers that are opened up to the homeless when the weather is dangerously cold or wet.

2,200 AF = CVWD’s formal allotment (2,000 AF plus 200 AF of “drought buffer water”)
• Pump problem: When Cachuma drops below 47,500 AF, a $4 million pump system will be necessary to move water into the Tecelote Tunnel for transport to South Coast water agencies. Plans are in place to have the pump installed as of Sept. 1, 2014.
• The district’s Drought Management Committee, comprised of boardmembers June Van Wingerden and Al Orozco, meets with district staff every second and fourth Monday at noon at 1301 Santa Ynez Ave. to prepare and plan for the district’s drought response. Meetings are open to the public.
To understand Carpinteria Valley’s position in these parched times, it’s necessary to understand where the water that flows from the taps gets its start. Groundwater beneath the valley has long been considered the district’s ace up its sleeve. CVWD’s expensive share of the State Water Project has finally provided some significant benefit, though the statewide drought means that that faucet is soon to close. And though Cachuma has long served as the valley’s primary water source, the lake is now less than 40 percent full and shrinking daily. The numbers below paint a detailed picture of Carpinteria Valley’s water availability and use.

The Carpinteria Valley Water District’s board of directors likely voted to draft a stage one drought emergency declaration at its Feb. 12 meeting, which took place after CVN went to print this week. The declaration would formally acknowledge the drought and include a request that CVWD customers reduce their water consumption given the potential for future water shortages. A potential drought has loomed on the horizon for some time, but most Santa Barbara area water agencies held off on officially labeling the situation a drought while hoping for significant rainfall this winter. Now that the months that are typically wettest are history and Lake Cachuma’s level has continued to drop, decision-makers are scrambling to convince residents that the crisis is real and water consumption must be reduced.
1,095 AF budgeted for use in 2013-2014
Rainfall: today and tomorrow • Santa Barbara County has received only 18 percent of its normal rainfall for this water year (Sept. 1 through Aug. 31). The county received 46 percent in 2012-2013 and 66 percent in 2011-2012. • Carpinteria has received 1.13 inches of rain this water year. The city’s average rainfall is 19.57 inches. • Since last winter, a mass of high-pressure air has been blocking Pacific winter storms from hitting the West Coast from Washington to Baja California. The high-pressure ridge deflects storms north and toward the Midwest. Forecasters see no end in sight to the lingering ridge.
• Though Carpinteria is fortunate to be sitting atop high-quality, readily available groundwater, accessing that water has proven to be more difficult than it should be. Pump failure at local CVWD wells has been common; corrosion is the main culprit. CVWD currently has one well, El Carro, producing water and plans to have a second, the Headquarters Well, in operation by early March. * 1 Acre Foot= 1 acre with a depth of 1 foot or 43,560 cubic feet

Genevieve Manset Thornburgh 1927-2014
Geneviève Marie Manset was born in Paris, France, on Jan. 3, 1927. Her mother, Genevieve “Gigi” RobinsonRiley was born in San Francisco. At two years old, Gigi moved to France where her father had been appointed U.S. Vice Consul in Nice. In the early 1920s, Gigi married Georges Octave Manset. They had four children: Eliane, Genevieve, George and Frances. When Genevieve was just 7, her father died, leaving Gigi alone to raise four young children. She moved the family to Nice where little Genny attended a small convent boarding school. During vacations, Gigi took the children on adventures all over Europe to see the sights and visit family. They were in Rome when the war broke out in ’39. They quickly moved to the seemingly safer family home on the coast of Brittany. It did not take long for a German general to commandeer the house for their local headquarters. One night, Gigi “stole” back her car, gathered up the children and headed to Portugal. With her dual citizenship, Gigi was able to gain passage on one of the last ships out of Lisbon. They came straight to Santa Barbara where Gigi’s parents had relocated in the early 1930s. So in 1941, at age 14, Genevieve found herself at La Cumbre Junior High. Her teenage girlfriends were intrigued by this seemingly sophisticated newcomer with heavy accent and a strand of pearls. She was outgoing and made many friends. One Santa Barbara High yearbook caption reads: “Swing and sway with Genny Manset.” In 1946, at 19, she married Robert Laselle Thornburgh. The following year their first daughter, Yvonne, was born. The young family moved to Stanford where Bob attended law school, and soon their second daughter, Suzanne, was born. Upon graduation they moved back to Santa Barbara. Bob went to work with his father Laselle at the law firm of Griffith and Thornburgh. They built a modest, single wall, board and batten cottage on their family lot way out of town on the beach at Padaro Lane. In time the tiny house was added on to. Two more daughters, Annette and Mimi, were born. The young Thornburgh girls grew up with the freedom to roam the beach in ways that would have made Tom Sawyer proud. The Padaro house has been the focal point of many long beach days, tide pooling, steamed clams, volleyball, bodysurfing, cocktails, bonfires, babies, weddings and Fourth-of-July fireworks. Genny and Bob enjoyed many a night socializing with lots of dear friends over the years. Some of their favorite haunts were Casa de Sevilla and Joe’s Café. At the Miramar, she would chat in French with Jacques the beach guard. She partook in an occasional bourbon Southside at the Valley Club. She was an active member of the Junior League, once dancing in one of their Lobero performances. But where Genny was most content was at the beach, in shorts, barefoot, cooking up great meals, sharing her energetic spir-
it, humor and mischievous looks. She had a quick wit, a sarcastic roll of the eyes, was well-read, and lovingly tended her garden of roses, herbs, annuals and fruit. She loved board games, played bridge well and worked a weekly crossword. Daily she read the paper outside, chatting from deck to deck with neighbors. She loved watching sports, especially tennis (her father had been a French tennis champion). She engaged us in “Genny-speak”—her lively non-linear storytelling. She couldn’t sit still for a minute. She was like a fifth sister. Genny and Bob loved to fish, and when she wasn’t surf casting or dropping a line at the Islands, one would most likely find them fly fishing at Mammoth Hot Creek. They bought a cabin there in 1965 where yearly they spent the six months of trout season. In later years, they also left for New Zealand every January for further pursuit of that mythical trout. Just like the beach house, the Mammoth House was generously shared with four generations of family, friends and acquaintances. Genny had the smallest kitchen with an old electric coil stove. Out of this little corner came the best meals with the freshest ingredients, a blend of her French roots and earthy sophistication. For those of us fortunate enough to share in these meals, there was never a doubt that we were experiencing food beyond measure. An exquisite meal was a daily occurrence whether the table was full of grateful guests, or on quieter nights when it was just she and Bob and a little candlelight. She loved her little town of Carpinteria. It is hard to imagine how her favorite eateries are going to manage without her slipping into the back kitchen with “suggestions” as to a spice or technique. Café Luna will not be the same without Geneviève dipping her brioche in her café au lait each morning on the sunny porch, while chatting away with some complete stranger. Genny was modest, unpretentious and generous. She gave anonymously to our local charities. She loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was always there at just the right time to lend her support to enrich the lives of each. We all had extra courage to push our boundaries because deep down we knew that if we fell, “Granny” would be there to pick us up. She will be deeply missed by her husband of 67 years, Bob Thornburgh; her daughters Yvonne Neumann (Andy), Suzy Blossom, Anny Annable (John), and Mimi Sheehan (Tom); her grandchildren Emilie Neumann (Sameer Pandya), Tarek Neumann, Mya Thornburgh (Michel Brewer); Chris, Chase and Abby Blossom; Genny Rose Annable; her greatgrandsons, Ravi and Ishan; and her multitudes of Manset, Maher, Adolph and Thornburgh nieces and nephews. Genny is survived by her sister Frances Maher. She is pre-deceased by her brother George Manset and her sister Eliane Adolph. The Catholic Church was a constant in her life. On Jan. 8, 2014, with all the family by her side, Father Steve from Our Lady of Mount Carmel gave the last rites. A beautiful special mass was later held at the church in her honor to celebrate the vivacious woman she was. Memorial contributions in Genny’s name may be made to “George and Peggy Manset Memorial Scholarship Fund” (made payable to the Santa Barbara Scholarship Foundation, PO Box 3620, Santa Barbara, CA. 93130) to support scholarships for students who play tennis and have financial needs. Genny did not want a funeral. “Just paddle out in front of the house for me.” The same house and beach where hundreds of friends and family have gathered for over six decades. Where she always held court on the deck, greeting with open arms, leaning over the balcony, orchestrating each of us with waving hands, making sure we were enjoying ourselves, enjoying it all. She enjoyed it all. She lived life well. We miss her.

BBQ Company celebrates five years in biz
On Valentine’s Day 2009, Gary and Jackie nielsen opened The Barbecue Company on Santa Claus Lane. This week, having weathered the toughest years of the recession, the couple is celebrating its five-year anniversary in business. “With the support of the community and all of our friends and neighbors, we have had five wonderful years and look forward to many more,” said Gary. The Barbecue Company launched a popular delivery service last year and plans to expand it, as well as its menu selection and catering capabilities. The success of the business, Gary said, is in part due to hard work of floor manager Derek Grant, who has worked for the restaurant for several years. “Creating great barbecue has been a passion in Gary’s family for years, and we are extremely proud to serve it up to the Carpinteria/Santa Barbara area for years to come,” said Jackie.
PLANNING Continued from page 1
IBC cruises through planning process but can’t shake parking fee Planners unanimously sang praises for Island Brewing Company when approving the 11-year-old brewery’s plan to double in size. IBC submitted the plan last month to grow its tasting room into the 3,500-square-foot adjacent space at its current 5049 6th Street location, and to add a walk-in refrigerator, office and conference room in the new square footage. The plan does not include any additional brew tanks but increasing storage space would allow the current equipment to be operated at a higher capacity. Planning commissioners hardly blinked at the structural side of the proposal, but also written into the alteration of IBC’s conditional use permit were the more greatly scrutinized requests to allow live entertainment and extend closing time from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. Owner Paul Wright explained that an 11 p.m. closing time would mean the brewery would stop pouring at 10 p.m. Closing time is considered by the Department of alcohol and Tobacco as the time when everyone is out the door, Wright explained. “They want you to wipe the tables clean,” he said. Live entertainment would also pull its plugs at last call, 10 p.m., not closing time, and although IBC wants flexibility to stay open late all week, it would operate according to demand and be less likely to remain open on weeknights and in the winter. Music would be compatible to
patrons having conversations and not characterized as “heavy thumping,” Wright anticipated. Planners found no history of noise complaints at IBC, and the sheriff ’s department did not object to the plans. The nearest campsite at Carpinteria State Beach is 250 feet away, a distance considered adequate to attenuate the noise, according to planners. On the issue of parking, planners found that the extension would up parking requirements from just over eight spaces to just over 18, based on one space per 500 square feet. The entire warehouse building within which IBC is located only has 11 on-site spots. The dearth of private parking in the area had been a sticking point during prior conditional use permit hearings with IBC, but planners had been lenient, “using a handful of tools,” to accommodate IBC, according to planner nick Bobroff. Planners had not required IBC to pay Parking Improvement Development Impact Fees when it added a patio in 2009, even though staff had recommended the payment then due to IBC using public parking maintained by the city for its business. Despite pleas from Wright and his wife/co-owner Cheryl Wright for IBC to be again sheltered from paying parking fees—which the owners called “burdensome” considering the expansion expense

Questions about Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is the world’s ﬁrst and largest fraternal organization, based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to make the world a better place. The fraternity originated in the Middle Ages with stonemasons who built castles and cathedrals, Freemasonry today provides men with opportunities for fellowship, community service, philanthropy and leadership. The Masons of California have more than 62,000 members and about 340 lodges located throughout the state. For more information, visit freemason.org. Carpinteria Lodge 444 • Call 684-4433
already being shouldered—planners found it to be fair and consistent to charge IBC for two spaces worth of parking fees totaling just over $10,000. Currently, IBC uses two parking spaces in front of the building it would expand into, but the plan to extend the patio removes those spots, resulting in an overall reduction of parking at the site. additionally, IBC would be required to pay an annual Parking Business Improvement assessment fee of $1,300, up from its current payment of $650 annually to use city parking spots at the train station. While IBC has grown, its parking has shrunk due to outdoor patio space eating up what had traditionally been parking at the site, reasoned planners in deciding to enforce the $10,000 fee. after some debate on the issue, Commissioner Jane Benefield asked project architects what the tasting room capacity would be after the expansion, to which developers replied, “209 people.” Of the need for parking and the fairness of city fees, Benefield concluded, “Let’s say we have 209 people there, and we have 18 parking spaces. I think that that speaks for itself.”
Card of Thanks The family of Anita S. Quiroga would like to thank family and friends for their loving support at this difficult time. The flowers, food and prayers were overwhelming. We will never forget. Love & Blessings, The Hernandez, Quiroga and Gutierrez families

Lettuce learn to grow
As part of the ongoing garden education part of Aliso School’s curriculum, the ﬁrst-grade class recently harvested lettuce for the school’s lunches. Principal Holly Minear reported that despite funds from an Orfalea Foundation grant drying up last year, the students and garden educator Maggie Iba continued the operation during weekly garden classes for all ﬁrst-graders. The students learn about composting, “aka worm soup,” and soil composition, plant growth and cooking. “Students learn which portion of the plants are edible and often try veggies they would never touch in their homes,” Minear commented.

No one fainted or busted down barricades, but last weekend’s Beatles Invasion at Plaza Playhouse Theater did flood Carpinteria with nostalgia for the Fab Four ’s arrival in the U.S. 50 years ago. On Feb. 8, a capacity audience rocked and rolled to Beatles covers by The Tearaways and heard from the nationally syndicated “Breakfast with The Beatles” radio show host Dennis Mitchell. The next night’s event featured a Q&A with Alan Parsons and screening of the Beatles’ first appearance on the “Ed Sullivan Show.” Final numbers haven’t been tallied, but the invasion appears to have raised over $4,000 toward a new movie screen at the nonprofit community theater.

Living the green life is… living the green life
Every month I write about something we can all do to make ourselves more aware of the environment around us, to create good habits that benefit both ourselves and the environment. But what does living “green” actually mean? I recently had a conversation with two good friends of mine over this topic. We were talking, in this case, about oil. This is a complicated subject that there is lots of room for debate over, and many people have strong opinions one way or the other. While my friends were on different sides of the issue, I think they each made excellent points. The real answer to many environmental debates is much more complex than getting rid of one thing in favor of another, and instead is about coming up with ways to reduce use and find alternatives that also work. This can translate into every aspect of our lives. No matter what topic you pick—oil, energy, waste, plastic—there are things we have adapted to living with, and ways that we can adjust our habits to have less of an impact on our natural resources. Water is an excellent example. None of us can live without water. But we can be more mindful of our use. I could write a lot about the ways we can be more responsible to our planet, but for now, I want to focus on water use. California is currently in its driest period in recorded history. We have all heard that we are currently in a drought cycle, but perhaps it hasn’t really set in for a lot of people. I know we haven’t all changed our habits. I am guilty of becoming too comfortable in a routine just like everyone else. One easy way to reduce water use is to check your sprinklers. Many of us set them once and forget about them, but often people over irrigate without even realizing it. Simple things like reducing your irrigation by 20 percent or more, or switching to drip irrigation can reduce your monthly water use. If you want to go a step further, drought tolerant landscaping is a great option if you have the space.

Or maybe you live in a place that doesn’t have a yard. I live in an older house, and my bathroom is upstairs on the opposite side of the house from the water heater. It takes a bit for the hot water to travel uphill to my shower. I bought a bucket to capture the water while I am waiting for it to get hot, and that water gets used to water plants, give to the dog or even flush the toilet. You might be surprised how much water goes down the drain while waiting for it to get hot. There are many places you can make small changes to conserve resources, like turning the water off when you wash the dishes, or buying reusable travel mugs instead of using a disposable cup for coffee. And for each little step you take, you are actually conserving multiple resources. For instance, saving water also helps save energy, which in turn can reduce the resources used to transport that energy from power plants. Living green doesn’t mean giving up our lifestyle or our health. I will be the first to admit that I like the comforts our modern lives offer. When it’s chilly early in the morning and I am out walking, I am very happy with my lightweight down jacket and high-tech layers. But I am also happy knowing that I purchased them from companies that do their best to have a good impact on the planet by producing things responsibly. There are little things we can all do to lighten our footsteps. What will yours be?

Choose your own
Trying to decide how to celebrate your sweetie on Feb. 14? Let CVN help you plan a Valentine’s Day perfectly suited to your unique brand of love. Just answer a few quick questions and plan accordingly.
Start Here: Does your schedule accommodate a day (or evening, N o or hour) of romance? Got time and talent in the kitchen?
Yes Love your lady or gent while also loving your local farmers. Prepare a dinner with beef grown by the Carpinteria Watkins family or Sage Hill Farm chicken. Pick up veggies at the Carpinteria Farmers Market or The Farm Cart.
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a big show. Fill a mason jar with coupons for priceless gifts such as foot rubs and breakfasts in bed and/or love notes for your lovey.
No pain no gain? Recreate the most romantic meal you’ve savored together. Perhaps it was alongside a Venetian canal, or maybe in that San Francisco hole in the wall.
For great views that don’t require the physical exertion, grab a pair of burritos and take your honey to the picnic tables on the ocean side of the Venoco building, 5661 Carpinteria Ave.
No Feel like staying in for the evening?
If you’ve got other plans on Feb. 14, bump your day of love to Saturday, Feb. 15 and catch a romantic classic ﬁlm at Plaza Playhouse Theater. “It Happened One Night,” winner of the 1934 Best Picture, will screen at 2 p.m.
Mind dropping a few dollars for a Valentine’s to remember?
No Got all day?
Prefer to stay in town?
Create your own highseas adventure/ romance by calling in sick for your lovebug and hopping on an Island Packers boat for a daytrip to Santa Cruz Island out of Ventura.
Get your sweetie’s blood pumping on a sunset hike up Franklin Trail. Pack a PeeBee & Jay’s picnic dinner to savor while sitting on Frank’s Bench with a Carpinteria panorama at your feet.
Prefer to observe Valentine’s Day in a traditional fashion?
No Is your perfect evening just around the corner from home?
Who says a simple night at home can’t be romantic? Order up a heartshaped Rusty’s pizza and pick up a Red Box movie at Albertsons or Vons.
Yes Fresh ﬂowers never disappoint and certainly don’t have to be expensive when the growers are just down the road. An orchid from Gallup & Stribling or Westerlay will demonstrate your love with exotic blooms that last for weeks and weeks.
The Shoals Island Grill gives lovers an opportunity to feel much farther away than ﬁve minutes south on Highway 101. Patio seating allows for dinner by the light of the full moon and set to the sound of the waves.
Challenge your loved one to a scavenger hunt throughout town. Create a series of riddle-ﬁlled clues leading to places that are signiﬁcant to you. The last item can be a box of hand picked chocolates from Chocolats du CaliBressan or Robitaille’s Candy.
Those looking to cut a rug or savor a slow dance with a special someone will be wise to head to The Palms on Valentine’s. Live music by The World’s Safest Band begins at 9 p.m.
Do you enjoy expressing yourself on the dance ﬂoor?
Keep it mellow, and let the pros help you ﬁnd the way to your honey’s heart through his or her stomach. Corktree Cellars has a special Valentine’s menu, while Zookers and Sly’s will complement their normal menus with Valentine’s specials.

NEXT WEEK: How far will they go? Playoff teams dive in February 13 - 19, 2014
Warriors, Rams set sights on CIF
BY PETER DUGRÉ
The dust still has to settle on the winter sports postseason picture, but several teams have clinched postseason berths. For Carpinteria High School, by the time this story hits the newsstands, boys basketball will have either captured a co-championship with a win at Nordhoff High School on Feb. 12 or will land in second place in Frontier League with a loss. Either way, the Warriors (17-7, 8-1) will qualify for boys basketball playoffs. Omar Miranda has paced the squad, which also beneﬁts from the sharp playmaking skills of fellow point guard Rayshaun Moore. Coach Johnny Ward referred to the point guards as a “two-headed monster” at the start of the season. Senior caption Duncan Gordon holds down the paint with his combination of strength and athleticism, and fellow senior Ian Craddock contributes from multiple positions with his versatile skill set. Mason Picerni has been a differencemaker off the bench all season. Warrior girls basketball collected an important win over Malibu High School on Feb. 11 and could qualify as an at-large entrant to playoffs. Warrior boys soccer had yet to be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, but the Warriors had only one Tri-Valley League victory heading into the ﬁnal game. For Cate School, girls water polo, boys soccer and girls basketball are all locked into playoff spots. Cate girls water polo had been knocking Tri-Valley League teams out of the water for weeks until a 4-3 loss to Oaks Christian High School and its all-world goalie on Feb. 7. The Rams (10-2, 7-2), led by four-year starter Caroline Montgomery and fellow seniors Sophia Soriano, Sophie Maes and Chloe King, are still on pace for second place in TVL and a playoff position. The well-balanced squad collected an impressive win over ﬁrst-place Malibu High School earlier in the season. Cate boys soccer is again poised for a deep playoff run and has regularly ranked at number 4 in CIF Division 6 polls over the course of the season. Geoffrey Acheampong, who was banged up early in the season, has regained his dazzling form as the team’s top ball handler, facilitator and scorer. Matthew Firestone, Abraham Tall and Joel Serugo balance out the squad that has dominated Condor League for over four years. Upstart Dunn School, however, handed ﬁrst-place Cate (8-2-4, 4-0-1) a tie for its single league blemish. Cate girls basketball collected a win against Providence Hall last week to clinch a playoff spot with a 4-1 Condor League record. The team can earn a season-split with rival Thacher on Feb. 12 after press time. Elan Halpern has led the team with her balanced game, along with scorers Erika Noble and Delaney Mayﬁeld. Playoff schedules will be released on Monday, Feb. 17. BILL SWING PHOTOS
A little help from Weldon Nomura
Coastal View News is shining the spotlight on largely unsung assistant coaches for local high school sports teams. From bus rides to late dinners and daily practices, these coaches sacrifice without thought of reward. This week, we start the series of assistant coach proﬁles with recognizable mail carrier and sidelines stalwart Weldon Nomura.
Q. How long have you been coaching, and how did you end up coaching at Carpinteria High School? I started helping out at CHS with track when my son Kyle entered high school in 2000 and continued when my daughter Kacey started in 2004. Dan Mercer offered me an assistant role in
girls basketball in 2004, and Van Latham and Ben Hallock offered me an ofﬁcial assistant position in track in 2009 after I’d been volunteering for years. I also have been helping Angel Silva as a volunteer in cross country off and on since 2005.
Q. At what level did you last play the sport you coach? I was cut from my ninth-grade basketball team, but then focused my efforts on track & ﬁeld. I was blessed to be able to compete and have success at SBHS, SBCC and UCSB.
Q. Other than winning ball games, what makes for a rewarding coaching experience? The kids! Unlike required high school courses like math, English, etc., kids choose to do sports. I have literally worked with hundreds of kids through the years (60 alone in this year’s cross country team) and every one has been special to me, regardless of their athletic achievements or success.
Q. What is a highlight of your coaching career? I’ve had multiple highlights in my coaching career. Obviously, the success of my own kids (Kyle ran on the 2003 state finalist cross country team, and Kacey set the 800 meter school record, among other feats). As for my “other kids,” David Cornejo’s league title and third place medal at CIF in the 300m hurdles, and Kelsey Drain’s Russell Cup 100m hurdles win.

club scene Rotary hears about housing mediation
Andrea bifano, the Senior Rental housing mediation Specialist in Santa barbara, spoke to more than 30 members of the Rotary Club of Carpinteria at their Feb. 6 meeting at the Lions Community building. bifano, who is a 20-year veteran in the mediation field, spoke to the importance of allowing the housing mediation taskforce work with renters and owners to resolve problems that occur from misunderstandings and misinformation. bifano said, “Working with the task force is a voluntary process, and more than 90 percent of the cases are solved in a good faith manner.”
Rotary guest Andrea Bifano and club President Roland Rotz point to the Rotary International four-way test, which is similar to the Rental Housing Mediation department’s resolution process. “Is it truthful, is it fair to all, will it build goodwill and will it be beneficial to all concerned?”

into a building that, once it’s in better condition, still has an estimate useful life of 20 years,” concluded Abbott. As an alternative to reconditioning the portables or replacing them with traditionally built classrooms or new portables, the school board will consider modular classrooms. These structures, which are built offsite and delivered to the campus, offer a less expensive and less time consuming alternative to traditionally built classrooms. Starting at $125 per square foot, compared to $250 to $500 per square foot for regular classrooms, modular buildings are permanent structures and can be designed to blend into the architectural style of each campus. Board members are planning to tour modular classrooms in Brentwood in coming weeks to get a better feel for how the structures might work in CUSD. Cost estimates to install modular classrooms at CUSD have not been calculated yet but will be worked into the next revision of the facilities plan. District administrators also brought the board a revised estimate for technology needs into the future. For an estimated $744,000, the district could upgrade its capacity for data use to meet best guess estimates for its needs 10 years from now. Rather than focusing on increasing the number of individual computing devices, the priority has been placed on replacing cabling in schools to allow higher volumes of data trafﬁc. Abbott advised the board of several other changes being made to the draft facilities plan. She is working to recategorize some of the deferred maintenance costs included on the original list. Projects such as painting the outside of the schools would be better paid for out of the district operating budget than worked into a bond measure, she said. LED lighting and safety glass windows, formerly worked into the plan for all the school sites, will be included in new construction only, due to the great cost of full replacement. A design and engineering classroom at CHS, a project initially excluded from the facilities plan, will be added, as well as replacement portables at Rincon High School. “The price tag, I suspect, will go up even though I’ve been pulling some things off the list and recategorizing them … but you need to see it all,” Abbott told the board. Superintendent Paul Cordeiro said that administrators were working hard to develop a well-researched set of recommendations in order to convince the community that the cost “isn’t a number pulled out of a hat.” To inform residents and gather community input, the district will host a series of four public meetings over the next few weeks. The ﬁrst will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6:30 p.m. at Carpinteria High School, 4810 Foothill Road. “We’re not here to make a ﬁnal decision. We need to bring this to the community to hear what the community wants,” said Boardmember Terry Hickey Banks. The board hopes to ﬁnalize the facilities master plan by the end of April and decide whether to move forward with a bond measure. Should the board act to place a measure on the ballot, the district would then hire a company to conduct a voter survey. “That’s going to really deﬁne a maximum amount of dollars that we can go out for,” Banks said.

Deputies investigating a report of a broken window in a motel room on Via Real at 2 p.m. on Feb. 1 encountered a man they suspected was high on cocaine. Finding the motel room empty, deputies tracked down the alleged vandal and occupant of the room at a nearby convenience store. The man reportedly told officers that he was feeling paranoid due to the abundance of “hits” that had been placed on his life. One hit, he could handle, he said, but two or three were too many to juggle. About the window, the man ﬁrst stated it could have resulted in an argument between he and a woman. They had smoked marijuana before becoming engaged in a squabble that escalated into a tug of war over a metal suitcase. The man implied that the suitcase shattered the window during the struggle, stating, “Better the window than her.” However, he soon took back the comment and claimed he had not seen a broken window in his room. In addition to the marijuana, the man admitted to using cocaine. Deputies arrested the man for drug use and vandalism. On the way to the station, the man informed them that he had swallowed a baggy of cocaine in order to conceal it. He was rerouted to the hospital to be medically treated for ingesting the drug.
A surly man allegedly chest bumped a woman for introducing herself to him at the entrance to Ash Avenue beach at 7:30 a.m. on Jan. 30. According to the woman, she had heard 15 minutes of hollering from the man before she decided to approach him. When she approached him, she asked
his name, and he reportedly replied, “Now we have a problem.” He reportedly entered her personal space and laid an aggressive chest-to-chest greeting on her. The woman responded by backing away and uttering, “Wow.” The man, 60, recommended to the woman that she call sheriff’s deputies so they could all talk about the incident together. He also proclaimed that he was a CBS News personality and that he was at the beach on orders from a judge to conduct a restoration project. While dialing 9-1-1 the woman continued to back away, but the man gravitated toward her. Then an unknown woman in a red van pulled up and offered a ride to the woman who had been uncomfortably entangled with the man. She hopped in and they drove a block. The man gave up his pursuit. The chest bump had been disturbing enough for the woman to ask to press battery charges when deputies arrived. Deputies could not get the man to tell his side of the story, but when it came to explaining his beach restoration project, he sang like a bird. Initially, he was curt, telling deputies to arrest him quickly. He had been booked 88 times before, he said, so they should just get it over with. Then, when asked, he enthusiastically pointed out the work he had been assigned by the judge. There were piles of dog poo near a beach path. He was picking them up, and that’s why the woman accosted him, he said.

The salad days of winter Last week I was thinking about tomatoes. It’s February, I know, but the thing is, there are heirloom tomatoes and those tiny little sweet cherry tomatoes at the farmer’s market. In February! There was a piece in the L.A. Times food section last week about eating seasonally, something that is dear to my heart. I am always telling people “Don’t eat apricots in December, they’ll taste revolting (unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere of course) and will have traveled thousands of miles to get here.” Now I am writing about roasting tomatoes in winter. Huge apologies to those of you who are not in California right now. We may be having a drought, but we do have tomatoes at the market. All kidding aside, I would actually happily trade tomatoes for buckets of rain right this minute, as we are seeing our local lakes evaporate before our eyes. The local mountains, normally green at this time of year, are an August shade of brown. Everything is bone dry. We had about three drops of rain last week, which sent everyone into a tizzy with comments along the lines of, “Wow, what is this strange wet stuff falling from the sky?” or “Be careful driving in the hazardous conditions!” If anyone knows a rain dance, please dance away. Which leads me back to my tomatoes. You see, I couldn’t resist the little gems, and although my mind was saying, “These are not in season; why are you buying them?” I did because they were grown locally and I found them at the farmers market. I love slow roasting cherry tomatoes. Their ﬂavor is concentrated, they become sweeter and they enhance any dish they are added to. They’re a great addition to pasta, grilled salmon, pretty much anything that comes off a barbecue (I once put some on top of a small goat cheese stuffed lamb-burger which took tomato sauce to an entirely different level) and in salads. I’ve become a bit obsessed with red quinoa. It has a marvelous nutty ﬂavor. It’s versatile and can be eaten hot or cold, and is a tasty, hearty addition to salads. Here’s the one I made with the roasted tomatoes. Be sure to add all the juice from the dish the tomatoes roasted in. If there’s any left in the bottom of the dish, take a piece of fresh bread (olive is my personal favorite) and mop up the little brown bits. It’s a heavenly little treat!
Olive oil ½-pound cherry tomatoes 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence Salt and pepper 1 cup red quinoa, rinsed 2 cups water 6 long thin leeks, ends trimmed, leeks rinsed clean and then cut into ¼-inch disks 4-6 green onions, ends trimmed and cut into ¼-inch slices 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar Zest and juice of 1 lemon 1/2 bunch cilantro, leaves removed from the stems and left whole 1/4 cup pistachios, roughly chopped 1/4 cup almonds, roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Pour a little olive oil into a small ovenproof dish. Add the tomatoes and sprinkle the herbes de Provence over the top. Add a pinch of salt and some pepper and shake the dish backwards and forwards a few times so that the tomatoes are coated with the oil. Place in the center of the oven and roast for 2 hours. The tomatoes will look slightly wrinkled (they should). Place the quinoa in a saucepan with the 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the quinoa has absorbed all the water. Once cooked, remove the pan from the heat and let the quinoa cool. You can also cook quinoa in a rice cooker, using the same proportions. While the quinoa and tomatoes are cooking, prepare the leeks. Pour a little olive oil into a large skillet placed over medium heat. Add the leeks and green onions and cook, stirring frequently for 8-10 minutes. The leeks should be softened but not browned. Remove from the heat and let cool in the pan. Remove the tomatoes from the oven and pour the vinegar over them when they are hot. Spoon the tomatoes and the pan juices into a salad bowl. Add the cooked leeks and the cooked quinoa to the bowl. Drizzle with a little olive oil and the lemon juice and toss all of the ingredients together taking care not to squash the tomatoes. Sprinkle the lemon zest and the nuts over the salad and serve warm. Recipe serves four people as a main course and eight as a ﬁrst course.

Color wise wardrobe wisdom LORI COOPER Drawings by Camille Cooper
CARPINTERIA MAGAZINE winter2014
Available at local businesses, Coastal View News ofﬁce and at www. carpinteriamagazine. com
I am delighted to report that the Pantone Group, which decides which colors will appear in everything from mixing bowls to sweaters, chose “Radiant Orchid” as the color of 2014. According to Pantone’s executive director: “It’s an invitation to innovation. The purple family offers (an) opportunity to do creative things.” Some people eagerly embrace the “new” hues that are deemed fashionable each season. Others dip their toes in the water cautiously, trying out the colors in accessories or shoes. One question arises inevitably when the topic of color is mentioned: What colors are ﬂattering? I notice that there are people who instinctively or by trial and error know what colors look great on them while others are vexed, not understanding the keys to this information. During the summer before junior high school, my mom took her friend’s daughter, Stacy, and me to the Fashion Academy in Santa Ana, Calif. We did not know what was in store for us, having only been told that we would be “getting our colors done.” Our moms had bafﬂed us for years with their claims of being an autumn or spring. We supposed this was the day their perplexing terms would become clear and we would learn our seasons. Prior to that momentous day, I wore my mom’s colors: shades of beige, rust, brown and olive green (it was the 1970s!). After my day with Stacy, I learned I was a winter, meaning I looked best in cool toned colors such as emerald green, royal blue, white, gray, and burgundy. Though I stick with my colors today, friends over the years have suggested I branch out.
The main reasons I wear my cool tones is that they make me look and feel good, and I have a wardrobe that coordinates beautifully: everything goes with everything. Unlike my husband, who thinks the whole color season idea is preposterous, I have observed that most people look good in either warm or cool tones. Very few people look fabulous in every existing shade. So, how do you ﬁgure out what colors are best for you? First you need to gain an understanding of warm and cool. When I use these words with clients, they sometimes look confused. By warm, I mean colors with a yellow undertone; cool colors have a blue undertone. For example, camel and orange are warm colors; purple and fuchsia are cool colors. Brick red is warm and cherry red is cool. Aqua is warm and icy blue is cool. Get it? Now take clothing from your closet, and sort them into two piles, one warm and one cool. Set up a mirror in well-lit room (natural light is best), pull your hair off your face so it is not a distraction, and hold the different clothes up to your face.
Which ones light up your eyes, skin, and make your teeth shine? Which ones dull your complexion and make your teeth look yellow? A pattern should start to emerge where either the warm or cool tones is clearly more ﬂattering. If you have trouble discerning which colors look better on you, ask a friend with a sharp eye to help out. Once you have determined the colors that suit you best, it’s time to make some decisions. My advice would be to omit any unﬂattering tones from your wardrobe—at least tops, sweaters, or dresses where the color is right against your face. You should notice how the remaining pieces go well with each other. You can now shop with conﬁdence, knowing what shades suit you and which ones to avoid. You will make better choices, and no longer purchase pieces that just hang in your closet because they don’t feel great on you. Finally, getting dressed will become an exciting and easy part of your day! Former writing teacher Lori Cooper has turned her love of shopping and style into a career.

Too ﬁt for love Dear Girlfriend Guru, I am an extremely health oriented person. I’m very particular about what I eat: no dairy, organic, locally grown, no wheat and absolutely nothing that is processed. I exercise vigorously ﬁve days a week and bike to work every day. I look and feel great. The only problem is I have had a hard time finding a partner in Santa Barbara. My friends and colleagues have set me up on dates that usually go ﬁne at ﬁrst: there seems to be attraction; we have a good time. I’m always a gentleman, taking the woman out to dinner or drinks (juice for me because I don’t drink alcohol) but nothing seems to stick. Inevitably by the end of the date there is no chemistry left, or even if there is, she often doesn’t call me back. What’s up? Are women in Santa Barbara just not interested in a healthy guy? I just am not seeing what the problem is. Signed, Bewildered Dear Bewildered, I think that you will ﬁnd that there are plenty of health oriented women in Santa Barbara, however, that is often not all they are interested in. Look, it’s great to be healthy and take care of yourself, but to be honest, if that is all you can talk about you might come off as boring or worse: arrogant. Very few people are as health oriented as you, but that doesn’t mean that you have nothing in common. Maybe you need to
look within and ﬁgure out what other kinds of interests you have. I’m sure you wouldn’t want a woman who is onesided; well, neither would any woman. Speaking about how healthy and ﬁt you are may actually have more negative results when you are dating then you might realize. For instance: hearing about how impeccable your eating and exercise habits are may make your date feel guilty about her own diet or exercise routine. Secondly, it might make her feel self conscious about her ﬁgure. If you are so focused on absolute health and ﬁtness, your date may feel like she has to be a supermodel in order to keep up with your standards. Your “positive” habits may actually be having a negative effect on those around you. Try taking it down a notch. Talk about other things than just health with your date. Try taking a walk instead of going on a jog together; show her that you are more than just muscles and vegetables. By opening yourself up to new possibilities, or by letting her lead a little, you may ﬁnd that you actually begin to have fun. Of course, it is important to share your values with someone else, but it’s important to note that sharing values doesn’t mean having everything in common. Relax, enjoy the diversity, let yourself try something different and who knows, you may even be surprised. “It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.” – Unknown Enjoy being a mystery and good luck, G.G.

CVN visits Rod Laver Stadium
Abel and Pauline Reyes ventured down under to take in the sights and sounds of the Australian Open at Rod Laver Stadium. The tennis fans had superb seats but were limited in their ability to take in the action due to an oppressive heat wave. The travelers made do by watching some matches on prime time television in the hotel room. Following the open, the travelers spent four days in Melbourne and hit Cairns for three days. They made an excursion to the Great Barrier Reef before looping back to Sydney for three days and paying a visit to Sydney Opera House.

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery?
Submit your Halos & Pitchforks at coaStalview.com
The following counts taken from Feb. 3 to 9 were compiled from Carpinteria Seal Watch volunteer reports. Carpinteria harbor seal beach closure runs from Dec. 1 to June 1 each year. Seal Watch volunteers are still welcome to sign up by calling 684-2247.
High Adult Count
High Pup Count
This week’s count is 1,227, which includes visitors from Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, Sweden, China, Russia, Brazil, Washington, Texas, Oregon, Iowa, Idaho, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New York, Nevada, Nebraska, Maryland, Arizona, Virginia, Colorado, Delaware, New Jersey, New Hampshire and North Carolina.
Pier activity frightened the seals three times. Additional disturbances were caused by a helicopter and a beach runner who refused to turn back before reaching the pier.
Natural History Notes
This week brought multiple births, which thrilled people who enjoyed seeing the new moms bonding with the pups. The new moms repeatedly touch noses with their newborns, often introduce them to the ocean, and encourage nursing. A great way to learn harbor seal behavior is to volunteer for a couple of hours a week; weekday volunteers are particularly needed.
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. To find out more, visit sealwatchcarpinteria.com.
