City council launches a frack attack

This week’s listings on the back page

Break a leg

BY CAT NEUSHL

Fracking is a divisive issue in California and across the nation, but it wasn’t for the Carpinteria City Council at its meeting on Feb. 24. Each of the five council members expressed support for crafting a letter to Governor Jerry Brown asking him to place a temporary moratorium on the practice in California. The letter should be ready by the end of March. At the meeting, city council members, representatives of the Carpinteria Valley Association, and local residents all expressed concerns about fracking, a process in which water and chemicals are injected into wells to enhance the extraction of oil and gas. The reasons for opposing the practice involved a myriad of environmental concerns, including the possibility of triggering an earthquake. City Councilman Fred Shaw said, “It just seems kind of foolish to go with something that injects chemicals into the ground. Even if there is a minor possibility that it is getting injected into groundwater … a moratorium makes a lot of sense.” Some members agreed with calling for a moratorium, but wanted to see further action taken. Councilman Al Clark said, “I would be interested in supporting a local ban.” He added that this would allow Carpinteria to maintain local control over the issue. City staff members, including City Manager Dave Durflinger, said the research, both legal and scientific, needed to propose a ban of any sort would be problematic at this time. He said it would be time consuming and that the current budget does not include funding for this purpose. In addition, he said the state should provide the needed information by January 2015 in accordance with Senate Bill 4, which requires the State Department of Conservation Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources to provide data about well stimulation practices, such as fracking. The bill also calls for an independent scientific analysis to be completed by the Natural Resources Agency. Community Development Director Jackie Campbell said that the city’s current permitting process gives representatives the ability to prohibit future projects that could involve fracking from land. Durflinger said that the possibility of a citywide ban could be revisited when the information from the state is available. Many other cities, including Culver City and Carson, have crafted resolutions against fracking. CVA brought the issue to the forefront by sending a letter to the city requesting a moratorium. CVA boardmember Jim Taylor said in the letter, “This will add our city’s voice to the rising chorus of localities, cities, and legislators requesting this important action.” Local resident Miguel Checa said, “I wish we could find a way to ban all well stimulation methods.” He added, “Our environment has been polluted for far too long by the coal, oil and gas industries.” Vice Mayor Gregg Carty added a closing thought.

Plastic bag makes comeback at Vons BY PETER DUGRÉ

Most of the headlines had read something like “Carpinteria bans the bag” when in 2012 the city council passed an ordinance to eliminate single-use paper and plastic bags at large retail stores within the city. The assumption was that plastic bags, the alleged scourge on the environment and contributor to the Texas-sized garbage gyre in the Pacific Ocean, had been wiped out. Then in mid-February, Vons grocery store resurrected plastic bags that comply with the bag ban. The city had not banned plastic; the key words in the ordinance were “single-use.” Vons assistant manager Charles Langhorne commented that the store needed to offer an affordable bag—Vons charges 20 cents each—for its customers, particularly tourists not prepared for Carpinteria’s ban. He commented that Albertsons offers a similarly priced bag so Vons sought a comparable price point. “We want to take care of the tourists,” he said. “We’re selling them pretty much at cost.” The Vons plastic bag, made from 60 percent recycled

content, is thicker than single-use bags and passes the “walk test.” Bags fitting the definition of reusable must be capable of carrying 22 pounds a distance of 175 feet at least 125 times. Whatever “durable

An old nylon bushing that gave way on a 15-inch water main was too blame for the geyser that sprang up on Feb. 23 off Casitas Pass Road.

BOyD

A water main leak that sprang at the intersection of Golden Gate Avenue and Valencia Road in Summerland on Feb. 20 sent thousands of gallons of the prized resource down the hill and into storm drains.

Local water districts battle leaks, lose water

In the last week, Carpinteria Valley and Montecito water districts suffered major leaks, losing tens of thousands of gallons to the sea in a time when every gallon is precious. Preliminary estimates by the Montecito Water District indicate that a series of leaks in Summerland on Feb. 20 amounted to a loss of 80,000 gallons. According to engineering manager Karl Meier, the cast iron pipe beneath Golden Gate Avenue sprung three separate leaks that required repairing over the course of the day. The district is now planning for an emergency pipeline replacement project in upcoming weeks. Carpinteria Valley Water District lost about 20,000 gallons near Lions Park on Casitas Pass Road on Feb. 23 when an underground pipe failure led to what District Manager Charles Hamilton described as a “gusher.” Residents called in the leak, and Hamilton reported, “Our guys did a great job facing a tough challenge to get a shut down.”

CHS state ag funding in jeopardy

PROFESSIONAL JEWELRY SERVICE

BY LEA BOYD

California’s Agriculture Education Incentive Grant is on the state budget chopping block this year, and supporters of Carpinteria High School’s award-winning agriculture program are concerned that the fate of the local program also could be on the line. If Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed 2014-2015 state budget is approved, $4.13 million in dedicated Ag Incentive Grant monies would be rolled into the state’s $40 billion education budget and divvied up among the hundreds of school districts funded on a per pupil basis. Carpinteria Unified School District, a basic aid district funded through local property taxes without additional general fund input from the state, would lose nearly $15,000 toward the agriculture program at CHS. CUSD Superintendent Paul Cordeiro said that should the grant monies be lost, he would recommend that the board of education dip into the district’s general fund to provide an equal level of support for agricultural education. The local community has fought to ensure the future of agricultural education at CHS, and Cordeiro said the district is among the program’s supporters. “There’s no interest in killing the program,” he said. Nonetheless, CHS’s agriculture department suffered a blow this school year when it lost its second teacher. When Holly Smith resigned from her position last summer, despite having a salary 50 percent funded by community donations over the last year, the district decided to cut her position. CHS, which had built up a robust agriculture program on a two-teacher foundation, lost classes such as veterinary science, landscape design and floral design in the reduction to one teacher. Remaining teacher John Avila, who was initially hired as the second fulltime ag teacher in 2001, said that one of the biggest problems with the slimmed down program is that the best and brightest of his students no longer have the same opportunities to remain on the agriculture track throughout their time at CHS. And these days, Avila is running a one-man show. “I’m on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” he said. The CHS Future Farmers of America program, which is partially funded through the Ag Incentive Grant, has progressed over the last decade and now boasts an impressive resume of achievements—35 state degree champions in the past three years, 12 students who qualify for the National American Degree this year and Chapter of the Year recognition over the last two years. In the last three years, Avila said, at least one of the three Junior Carpinterian finalists has been a member of FFA. Now that staffing is halved, Avila says that the gains made by CHS’s agriculture program have slipped and may slip further if the state budget fails to designate funds for high achieving agriculture programs. The incentive for the district to pay students’ FFA dues, trips to fairs to sell and show livestock and teacher development opportunities will be gone, he said. Jim Aschwanden, executive director of the California Agricultural Teachers’ Association, echoed Avila’s fears. “Schools will do what they’re required to do, what they get measured on and what they get funding for,” he said. “Absent one of those drivers, you don’t last long.” At this point, the Agriculture Educa-

tion Incentive Grant, which was implemented by the state legislature in 1983, is not a lost cause. Superintendent Cordeiro said, “I’m not convinced that the program is going anywhere. It’s a program that’s survived through decades and decades of state legislatures with different governors.” Sandy Weil, president of the local chapter of California Women for Agriculture, encouraged community members to contact school board members and ask them to continue to fund the CUSD agriculture program should the state eliminate the Ag Incentive Grant. “Our California economy relies on farming and ranching, and it is still our number one industry in California,” she stated. Before the issue enters school board territory, it will be considered at the state level. Aschwanden stressed that anyone who wants to preserve the Ag Incentive Grant should contact state

representatives. Letters to Assemblyman Das Williams can be sent to 101 W. Anapamu Street, Suite A, Santa Barbara, CA 93101, and emails can be sent through his website, asmdc.org/members/a37.

VONS continued from page 1 material” the bag is made from must have handles and be at least 2.25 mils thick, which is 2.25 thousandths of an inch—not millimeters. City code enforcement approved the new bag. The Vons bag, known as the Bring Back Bag and made by roplast industries, was specifically designed to beat ordinances worded like Carpinteria’s. The Qr Code on the bag links to a website describing the “walk test” and Bring Back Bag’s proven ability to endure the test. City environmental Coordinator erin Maker noted that Vons sent an “independent lab test certification from (Roplast).” Many reusable bags are actually made from woven plastic, Maker said. Coastal View News reached out to former Carpinteria Mayor Donna Jordan, who is part of Carpinteria Beautiful, a driving force behind Carpinteria’s single-use bag ban. She said, “Seeing these things at Vons is almost a slap in the face to what the city is trying to do.” Jordan volunteers as a litter collector in the city and commented that she would ultimately reserve judgment until she

could see if the new bags ended up on the sides of roads and in city creeks as the old single-use plastic bags did. Both Jordan and Langhorne commented that charging customers for bags creates a perception of value. Studies show that one of the best ways to keep bags from becoming litter or going directly into the landfill is to charge for them. Langhorne also claimed the plastic material is easier to clean and safer from a sanitation standpoint. “Other bags are more susceptible to beef or chicken juice absorbing into them. These ones can be washed out,” Langhorne said. Jordan suggested that Vons had some ground to make up in terms of projecting a willingness to comply with the city’s efforts. “(Vons) didn’t embrace (the ban) at all,” Jordan said. “This is just kind of another link in the chain of not trying to get behind it and understanding the reason for it and cooperating.” Albertsons had eliminated single-use bags ahead of the ban and announced its efforts in signs and advertisements, moves that Jordan praised.

He said he had seen women trying to maneuver their strollers along the difficult terrain when he was returning from a morning workout. “i think it is wonderful that we are getting started on this.”

“Nine Degrees North” authors launch book on Illumination Day

When Carpinterians kim klein and Michael Bayouth launch their book on March 1 they will be recognizing the 60-year anniversary of a dark date in American history that took place at the place where the book is set, the Marshall islands. On March 1, 1954, the United States tested the largest nuclear bomb in national history at a testing site on the Bikini Atoll of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific. The authors are remembering this date by creating National illumination Day on March 1 on the same day they launch their book, which is available on Amazon.com and in e-book form. “Nine Degrees North” is a coming of age book set in 1969 at the Bikini Atoll. klein, a former Marshall islands resident, and Bayouth hope to draw attention to the many affected by the U.S.’s actions on the Marshall islands. “These islands matter. These people matter. We talk about the beauty of the place and how wonderful it was to live there, while forgetting that the Marshallese had to leave their home in order for us to do so,” klein stated.

Country tales Winter’s chill couldn’t keep former Carpinteria vocalists Jimmie and Cyndi Cantrell from performing outdoors in downtown Las Vegas. With the temperature gauge hovering in the low 30s, the Cantrells performed at the Freemont Street experience. Backed by three talented musicians, their Johnny Cash tribute act included songs “Big river,” “rusty Cage” and Carlene Carter’s MARK waltz, “it Takes One to know One.” The talented duo now lives in Las Vegas where Jimmie performs on “The Strip” in the Superstars of Country Music show at Planet Hollywood’s V Theater. His musical drama “Mittie’s Song” premiered in May 2013 at Carpinteria’s Plaza Playhouse Theater. The Freemont experience boasts a video screen that’s two city blocks long. The covered walkway explodes every night with wild on-the-hour visual presentations. Just down the famous walkway, country icon Merle Haggard was appearing at the Golden Nugget Casino. “The Hag” never uses a set list. His band knows his 200-song repertoire by heart. He just calls out a tune and they fall into it. Seeing Haggard perform live was at the top of this columnist’s bucket list. A few years back i decided to drive down to the Orange County Performing Arts Center to hear his deep Bakersfield twang and never-the-same phrasing. The only available tickets were located in the last row of the concert hall’s top balcony. About 10 minutes before the show started, the theater’s head usher climbed up to our section and calmly

asked, “Would any of you like to be reseated?” He said that the night’s artist had set aside some upgraded seats. it was a no-brainer. We all looked at each other and said, “Sure!” We followed him down to the first balcony and then stepped into the theater’s swank orchestra section. We looked at each other with puzzled amazement. BRICKLEY The usher led us past the $150 front row seats. He motioned us forward and opened the orchestra pit gate, directly in front of the stage. There were 10 cushioned chairs waiting for us. He smiled and led us in. We sat down stunned. The plush red curtain parted and Haggard’s superb back-up band, The Strangers, began to play. There were 10 musicians on stage, including three singers, a pedal steel guitar player and two fiddlers. Halfway through their prelude, Haggard stepped into the spotlight. He was dressed in a western cut jacket and wore tinted shades. His custom Fender Telecaster guitar was swung over his shoulder. its embossed leather strap was monogrammed with his name. Haggard tipped his black fedora to the audience and stepped to the microphone. The next two hours were a joyous musical blur. He played dozens of songs from his five-decade career including “Mama Tried,” “Big City” and “Silver Wings.” Then he began taking requests. Shielding his eyes from the bright spotlight, Merle peered out at the sold-out crowd. Fans held up signs and screamed out song titles. Haggard stepped forward and looked directly down at me. He said,

Mellow yellow advice for drought survival

This year’s lack of rain gives me flashbacks to the multi-year drought of my childhood here. That’s when I learned the value of taking short showers, installing low-flow toilets, irrigating landscaping only when necessary, planting droughttolerant plants and more. There are so many little things that everyone can do, from turning off the tap while brushing teeth to pouring cooled pasta water onto the garden. But my favorite slogan from the last real drought is also a great little reminder. Perhaps my affection for the phrase reflects my young age when the rain stopped coming last time, but I still think it’s time for the toilet flushing guidelines to make a comeback: if it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down.

The gift of scare a trainer’s journal ROB BURKE

I’ve been an athlete my entire life. As a competitive runner, swimmer, cyclist, rugby player and bodybuilder, I have always been eternally grateful for my physical abilities. Giving thanks to the great scorekeeper in the sky was standard practice, knowing that there are others who were and are less fortunate. But I didn’t look at those with physical limitations as less than I. I was just as inspired by them as I was thankful to appreciate both sides of the physical spectrum. As age 52 loomed right around the corner for me, I knew that I was given a gift that was to be re-gifted. I was absolutely certain that this vision of paying my good fortune forward is what brought meaning to my life. I knew that if I could incite just one life to become more active and fit, then my purpose on the big blue marble had been fulfilled. However, one thing about life is for certain; it’s one big surprise party with lots of gifts. Some call these new “gifts” challenges that might just thrust us into an entirely new life beyond what we expected or wanted. Two months ago, I noticed a nervous twitch in my thumb. I discounted it as having an over-stimulated neuromuscular system from some pre-workout drink or maybe exhaustion. Considering that I ran five miles every morning, lifted weights in the afternoon, and finished off the day with an ab-blasting workout on the beach or in the park, I convinced myself that it was nothing and I should proceed with my pre-destined and intended life plan. Two weeks later the twitch progressed to my entire right arm. It was becoming noticeable to friends and clients. When I walked, my arm trembled. When I sat still, my arm had a life of its own and wobbled at a rhythmic pace that could not be controlled even with a conscious change in focus. I would try to will or order it to stop. It stopped—and then started right back up again. That evening I stopped all pre-workout supplements, specifically those with central nervous system stimulants and caffeine. I started going to bed earlier. I was going to try everything and bring my body back to a pristine, unstimulated con-

A reader sends a pitchfork to the city for planting thirsty plants in the Linden Avenue bulb-outs. “This is a waste of tax dollars and sets a bad example during our drought.” A reader sends a pitchfork to those unscrupulous scribblers who defaced the traffic signs at the intersection of Foothill and Casitas Pass roads. A reader sends a pitchfork to owners of a local horse pasture who use five lawn sprinklers that look like the size they use at the Polo Field. “It looks like the entrance to a water park. Water well or not, shame on you.”

dition. The tremors persisted. One week later, my right leg began to shake. I was now concerned. I scoured that internet for information. I ruled out MS because the muscular tremor was about the only thing I had in common with that disease. That left Parkinson’s or a brain malfunction. I spent days researching. All avenues led me to believe that I had Parkinson’s Disease. My future exploded. I immediately feared the worst; that I’d be in a wheelchair in 10 years and suffering from full-blown dementia in 15. My plans to open multiple training studios downshifted into a slow blur in my head. Living was futile if I couldn’t be me, the physical me. I almost didn’t care if I lost my mind. I just didn’t want to lose my motion. So, you’re probably asking why I’m getting so upset when I haven’t even talked to a doctor? Yeah, I know, I asked myself the same thing after I jumped off the emotional cliff and found myself floating like a feather to the reality that I could be wrong. The next day, I called my doctor in Seattle, a good friend, and left a message. Dag-nabbit, why don’t they ever answer their phones? It was probably good that he didn’t answer his phone and took two weeks to respond to my message because it gave me time to consider all the things it could be and couldn’t be. In other words, the shock began to wear off and I was now remarkably calm and mentally adjusted to accept whatever the condition might be. Suddenly, the sky presented itself in a new and exciting hue. The air seemed just a bit fresher. Every person I passed on the freeway with their blinker on caused me to slow and allow them to merge in front of me. I was now accepting that the life I had wasn’t the life I would keep. I was ready to understand the gift. More next month. Rob Burke is the owner and certified trainer at the Rob Burke Turbo-Fit Studio, located at 410 Palm Avenue in Carpinteria.

Delicious bread, one spoonful at a time

Spinach spoonbread

1025 Casitas Pass Rd.

Ingredients

3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the dish 10 ounces baby spinach 3 cups buttermilk 3 large eggs (separated) 1 cup medium-grind yellow cornmeal 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons whole wheat flour 1 Tablespoon sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda Scant 1 teaspoon salt Pinch of nutmeg Pinch of fresh ground white pepper

Process

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9-by-13-inch baking dish or a large enameled cast-iron skillet by spraying with nonstick cooking spray. In a saucepan of boiling water, cook the spinach just until wilted, about 30 seconds. Drain and cool under running water, then squeeze out as much water as possible. Finely chop the spinach. In a large bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the egg yolks, cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, white pepper and the 3 Tablespoons of melted butter.

Fold in the chopped spinach. In a clean bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold the whites into the batter and scrape it into the prepared baking dish. Bake the spoonbread in the center of the oven for about 35 minutes or until golden. Let cool slightly, then serve. Note: If making this as a side for an elaborate holiday meal make it any time during the day, cover and store at room

temperature. Then, about 15 minutes before serving, reheat in an oven set at 325 degrees.

Water saving tips Part one

Resources:

garden gossip CHRIS & LISA CULLEN “We need to talk.” Okay, we all hate that statement, as it normally means something of a serious nature is about to be discussed. But that’s just one way of looking at it. Why not look at it from a more positive point of view? How about regarding this introduction as an opportunity for betterment: a better relationship, better understanding, better production, etc. Perhaps it encourages us to face something that we have perhaps been avoiding. So, here goes: We need to talk. About what? Water. Yep, the un-confrontable has occurred. We haven’t had any significant rainfall in three years. At the end of March 2011 we had received 163 percent of normal rainfall. That’s the last time it rained for real. It’s been that long. And since our average rainfall is pretty low to begin with (about 19 inches), when it gets down to 66 percent of normal (2012) and 46 percent of normal (2013) and now 18 percent of normal (2014), we better start paying attention. It has been my observation that most gardeners over-water. Plants will adjust their water consumption according to what you give them, so you can give them less and they will adjust. Start cutting down the water now while the weather is cool. My guess is that you could cut your water-use in half by following these simple recommendations.

Water-saving checklist

Mulch, don’t rake. Tell your gardener to leave his rake at home. If you can see dirt and drip hoses on the ground, there is raking instead of mulching. Maintain 4 to 6 inches of mulch on the ground at all times. This means you will likely need to replenish the mulch once or twice a year. If you do only one thing, mulch. Mulch will protect your plants from temperature changes and will keep moisture in the soil where it belongs. There are other proven benefits. Water efficiently. Drip irrigation puts water where the plants need it, at the roots. With new plantings, the emitter should be at the root ball. Once the plant matures, move the emitters to the drip line. As a plant matures, and needs more water, add emitters, not watering time. Go organic. Stay away from chemicals, pesticides and fungicides. Soil that is alive with microorganisms retains moisture. Compost and compost tea. Compost is alive. All those microorganisms are working for you and don’t even ask for a paycheck! Soil that is alive is key to conserving water. Compost tea is the elixir of life; treat all of your plants with a monthly application and everyone will be happier. If you don’t have the time to make your own compost or compost tea there are plenty of places you can buy it (see below for resources). Improve your soil. Add lots of organic material, planting mixes, potting soil, compost; if it’s organic matter, dig it in. This too will help the soil retain precious moisture. Stay tuned for more water-saving tips next month, and until then, fill your garden with joy!

Carpinteria Girl Scouts learned about different cultures and customs on Feb. 22.

Girl scouts travel the world in a day

To celebrate Thinking Day on Feb. 22, four Carpinteria Girl Scout troops visited the Santa Barbara Education Office auditorium, where they were treated to a whirlwind trip around the globe. Each girl was presented a passport and visited 19 different countries, each of which was represented with a table topped by interesting pictures, facts and traditional items from that country. Carpinteria troops wore costumes and represented China, France, Switzerland and Canada at the event. Thinking Day gives Girl Scouts all over the world an opportunity to learn about different countries and think about their international sister Girl Scouts. A highlight of the local event is always the “around the world style” dinner where girls travel the room sampling international cuisine from each country. The evening is finished with passport stamps and sharing of typical games, dances or crafts. The local celebration has become so popular that two events are now held for the over 400 participants.

boys fall in round 1 A little help from Warrior St. Joseph overwhelms home Warriors 53-32 Jackson Damron BY JACKSON COOK

Assistant boys basketball coach Jackson Damron wore the Warrior colors as a player before becoming a coach. A resurgent 2014 Carpinteria High School boys basketball team benefited from the guidance of assistant coach Jackson Damron, who has been in the current squad’s shoes. The Warrior alumnus is the latest subject of Coastal View News’ “A little help from” spotlight on often unheralded assistant coaches. Q. How long have you been coaching, and how did you end up at Carpinteria High School? I have been coaching varsity boys basketball with Johnny Ward for three seasons, starting in the winter of 2011. I played three years of varsity basketball here at CHS, two years for Johnny’s dad, John Ward. Johnny and I had discussed coaching together ever since he took over the head coaching position. Once I graduated college and moved back to Carpinteria, I was able to join his staff as an assistant coach. Q. Other than winning ball games, what makes for a rewarding coaching experience? Seeing the kids play to their full potential is awesome. Basketball is not an easy game. It takes time, dedication and a group of individuals working together towards victory. Our games at Bishop and Nordhoff really displayed that this year. The emotions that come out after winning a big game are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.

Carpinteria High School boys basketball, riding the wave of six consecutive wins, looked confident heading into the Feb. 19 CIF round one home game against the St. Joseph Knights. Warrior coach Johnny Ward knew he had to contend with a tough opponent in a match up made more difficult with the absence of Warrior playmaker Rayshaun Moore, who was sidelined due to an injury. Ward stated, “They are a great team, tall and lanky, and have a great defense.” Unable to match firepower, the Warriors fell behind early and never caught up to the potent Knights in a 53-32 defeat. The Warriors end their season having collected the first league championship for CHS boys basketball since 1999. They entered the Division 4A playoffs as the top-seed from Frontier League. In the first quarter, the Warriors, led by captain Duncan Gordon, battled it out with the Knights but trailed 12-8 after eight minutes. By the second quarter, the Warrior crowd chanted “Defense!” because St. Joseph’s speed and height overwhelmed the home team. Outstanding Knights player Keith Datu made big plays and helped to maintain overall possession of the ball, contributing to a 26-12 halftime deficit. The Warriors, sensing that St. Joseph was pulling away, turned on the heat after half time. With BILL SWING quick and precise passing by Warrior guard Omar Miranda ran up against a stingy St. Joseph Mason Picerni, the Warriors built defense in a home CIF playoff loss. momentum early. In a dazzling display, Picerni threaded a Knight defender’s legs on a scored the Knights 8-7 in the final quarter of the season. pass to Gordon as the two ran down the court. Ward said his team performed well and fought hard, St. Joseph held the ball to kill the clock but gave the but that St. Joseph “beat us off the dribble too much Warriors opportunities at the free-throw line. The War- and played hard. They are a great team. It was a great riors however shot free throws at just above a 50-percent game, and the atmosphere was fantastic. We got a lot clip, not enough top put a dent in the Knights’ lead. St. of kids here.” Joseph led 46-24 after three quarters. Many of the Warriors’ contributors from throughout In their last-gasp attempt to prolong the season, the successful season, including junior ball handlers the Warriors engaged in a physical battle in the fourth Rayshaun Moore and Omar Miranda, will have another quarter. The aggressiveness paid off as the Warriors out- opportunity to make playoffs next season.

Q. At what level did you last play the sport you coach? I stopped playing competitive basketball after my senior year in high school. I was undersized and “under talented” to play at the next level. I had always had a better basketball brain than skills.

Montgomery closes incredible Cate career

Q. What is a highlight of your coaching career? This question would have been pretty hard to answer last year. My first couple years with the program we struggled to come out on top in most games. Year by year the team has been growing and maturing. This year has been a quite a ride, filled with almost as many downs as ups. These kids were resilient and always found a way to fight back. We lost a vital member of our team shortly after the start of Frontier League play, but with his support and our remaining players’ effort, they went 8-1 to finish out the season as Co League Champions. It is the first basketball league title since 1999.

When Cate School girls water polo lost in round two of CIF playoffs, the Rams closed more than the chapter on their successful 2014 season. Senior Caroline Montgomery, a four-year varsity starter and four-time All-Tri-Valley League First Team member, ended her career as a Rams star. Cate coach Nathan Alldredge commented that Montgomery’s success comes from perseverance. “She simply outworks and out-hustles everyone in the pool,” Alldredge said. Montgomery has been known for speed and her stellar outside shot, but remarkably has

also had the strength to play two-meter defense. “She’s a phenomenal leader who gets the best out of everyone she plays with. She demands a lot from herself and all those around her. It’s been a real pleasure to coach her,” he said. Stats by season:

2010-11: 10 goals in 13 games 2011-12: 32 goals in 12 games 2012-13: 27 goals in 14 games (missed half season with injury) 2013-14: 48 goals in 15 games

Caroline Montgomery spent four years on the Cate girls varsity water polo team and scored 117 goals over that time.

Playoff rundown

Winter sports come to a close Rams soccer dominates in opener but gets edged in round 2

Hosting at-large playoff entry Orcutt Academy, Cate boys soccer leapt out to a commanding lead before running away with a 9-1 victory on Feb. 20. Joel Serugo scored Cate’s first three goals—two of them coming just 60 seconds apart in the fifth and sixth minutes of the contest. In a span of just 14 minutes in the middle of the game, the Rams systematically exploited the Spartans’ flat four defensive alignment for six more goals. Nine different Ram players contributed points in the contest. Besides Serugo’s three goals, Geoffrey Acheampong had one goal and three assists; Tyler Douglas had a goal and two assists; Andrew Robbins had two goals; Matthew Firestone had one goal and one assist; Leighton Brillo-Sonnino had two assists; Ryan Borchardt picked up his first goal of the season; Andrew Sinclair picked up an assist—his first of the year; and Iman Fardghassemi had an assist. “We were energetic from the start, pressuring Orcutt into turnovers and counterattacking relentlessly,” commented coach Peter Mack. However, a two-plus hour trip to San Bernadino on Feb. 25 saw Cate hit the end of the line against Arroyo Valley High School. The Rams lost 3-2 in double overtime. The Rams created opportunities early, but their shots fell off target. Arroyo was able to capitalize on a Cate defensive mix up about 15 minutes into the match. The Rams then tied the score on a Geoffrey Acheampong corner kick that Leighton BrilloSonnino headed in. Arroyo again went ahead 10 minutes into the second half. In the 73rd minute, Acheamopong beat several Arroyo players and ripped a low shot from 16-yards out to tie the game at 2-2 and force overtime. Arroyo won on a penalty kick with minutes remaining in double overtime. Coach Mack, who said he was “immensely proud,” stated, “No matter how you slice it, it’s simply heartbreaking to lose on a penalty kick in the final minutes of a contest that goes into a second overtime.” The Rams finished the season with a 10-3-4 record and fifth consecutive Condor League championship.

Rams girls water polo wins one, loses one in playoffs

Cate girls water polo rose to the occasion in a 7-6 home victory over Palm Springs in CIF round one on Feb. 18. The Rams (12-2, 8-2) benefited from the timely goals of Sophie Maes, who had three, and Caroline Montgomery, who sank two, in the back-and-forth thriller. Montgomery’s penalty shot goal with seconds left in the third quarter turned out to be the game’s final tally before the teams played to a 0-0 fourthquarter stalemate. “Weathering the best of whatever Palm Springs could throw at them, the defense held tight in the fourth to seal the win,” stated Cate coach Nathan Alldredge. Fellow seniors Chloe King and Sophia Soriano scored a goal apiece for the Rams. Junior Bella Shealy had seven saves in goal. At Yorba Linda, however, the Rams were overmatched 17-2. Both Caroline Montgomery and Chloe King scored goals, but the CiF Division 6 reigning champs had too much firepower for the Rams. The Rams fell behind 5-1 by halftime until Yorba Linda poured it on in the second half. “The Rams played some of the best water polo of the season against the best team in the division until eventually running out of gas,” commented coach Nathan Alldredge. Alldredge also commented that Cate’s season was “one for the ages.” The 12-3 Rams defeated Santa Ynez High School for the first time in seven years and Malibu High School for the first in 10 years. The team was also within a goal of a league championship and hosted a home playoff game for the first time in school history. “By any measure, it truly was a great year, and Cate will be back and ready to go next season.”

Cate girls basketball loses on the road

In CIF round two, Cate girls basketball lost 78-37 against at Ribet Academy in Los Angeles. Cate coaches commended Ribet shooters for shooting a high percentage even when Cate’s defense played so aggressively. “I think they probably shot 50-to-60 percent from the floor—including behind the 3-point line,” stated coaches Jay Dorion and Amy Venditta. Cate seniors Shirin Vetry and Erika Noble played their last game for the Rams and were commended for their multi-year contributions to the squad.

Donation box bandits

Thieves made way with whatever small amount of money there was at the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Park donation box. The prying open of the box was reported on Feb. 19, and deputies noted that someone had also tried to drill out the lock but gave up before opting for the old-fashioned pry. The person tending to the box, which typically contains small donations supporting bluff maintenance, estimated that fixing the box would be a $100 expense.

Mrs. Popular

A woman contacted sheriff’s deputies on Feb. 14 to report that she’d received a string of calls from creditors notifying her that her information had become popular to nefarious forces attempting to cash in on her credit. In January, a short-term cash loan company called her about money she had been trying to withdraw. Although suspicious, the first call fazed the woman little. Soon after, the fraud victim received a call from a person claiming to be a bank teller. The victim was forthcoming with some of her personal info. Then she tried to return the bank’s call but found the voicemail linked to a personal phone number. Then both Bank of America and American Express contacted the woman due to suspicious attempts to open credit lines using her information, so the woman contacted law enforcement.

Boyz to men

A 37-year-old man contacted law enforcement to report a scuffle he had been engaged in with his girlfriend’s 21-year-old son. When deputies arrived, however, only the girlfriend wished that charges be pressed. The exasperated woman urged deputies to arrest both her boyfriend and son for the disturbance. Both men corroborated a story about the boyfriend being at a 9th Street home when the son arrived. The son was allegedly intoxicated and began berating and insulting the boyfriend. According to the boyfriend, he stood up and charged the son in order to get him to hold his tongue, but his momentum led him to bang his nose into the son. He sustained a nose bleed. The girlfriend said she’d witnessed the boyfriend charge the son and slap him with two open hands before bringing the son to the ground and demanding respect. He then walked outside. She said the son sustained a hand injury from punching a doorframe. Although the woman said both men should be arrested, the men elected to not pursue charges and refused medical attention. Deputies noted that they both said their injuries were self-inflicted. Both men left the house going separate ways. Other reports: Theft: Plum Street Vandalism: Maple Avenue, Carpinteria Avenue

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery?

The following counts taken from Feb. 17 to 23 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 Pup Count

Lots of newborn pups make this a great time to visit—last week saw people from the United Kingdom, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Columbia, Mexico, Spain, Italy, Poland, Puerto Rico, Colorado, Minnesota, Maryland, Connecticut, Washington, Massachusetts, Louisiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, Utah, New York, Ohio, Idaho, Michigan, Georgia and Tennessee.

Disturbances

There were only two disturbances, caused by loud blufftop viewers and by pier activity.

Natural History Notes

This week a coyote was observed approaching the rookery near the pier; it fled when oil workers walked nearby. One month in the 1990s several seals were killed by a coyote. When the attacks began Sealwatchers were concerned that a dog or dogs could be the culprit, and overnight watches were kept by several volunteers. Eventually a necropsy by the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History confirmed the attacks were by a coyote. The attacks stopped, with some people suspecting that a coyote found killed by traffic nearby at about the same time was the predator. Despite the fact that many coyotes live in our area, this was the only recorded instance of coyote/seal interaction since Seal Watch’s inception.

More Info

A man is standing on the side of the freeway on a blazing hot day. The family who waved him over is using his jack to fix a flat tire. (He offered his labor as well, but they politely turned him down.) Semi trucks are roaring by at 75 miles an hour, shaking the road beneath his feet. At 5:50 a.m. a woman is outside what she thought was a 24-hour supermarket. She is waiting in her car for the store to open so she can get the ingredients she needs to surprise her family with pancakes for breakfast. What these two situations have in common is that they are both great opportunities for some mindful brain training. In fact, each of us has hundreds of opportunities to practice every day. Standing in line, stopped in traffic or at a red light, on hold on the phone, watching your computer refresh, before a meeting—the list of possible moments for practice is endless. We often treat these moments as if they are interruptions or hurdles to be put up with as we wait for our lives to begin again. In reality, these breaks and pauses are wonderful chances to reconnect fully with the incredible nature of life. Using these moments to ground yourself in the present is good for your physical, psychological and social health. The positive impacts of being mindful range from stress reduction and a more robust immune system to stronger interpersonal relationships and better performance at work. Mindfulness practice is as simple as consciously bringing your attention to sensations in your body such as the movement of the breath or details of the events and objects around you. When you notice

that your attention has been pulled away, simply return your attention to the chosen sensation or object. If you notice tension or resistance, you can lengthen your exhalation, relax your belly, drop your shoulders and smile. Even 10 seconds of this can shift activity in the brain and lead to a more positive perspective. People often ask me how often they should practice. My response is “how often would it be useful to activate the parts of your nervous system that see possibilities and connections?” It is helpful to practice when you are triggered, frustrated, stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, afraid—and when you are not. Sometimes it feels that modern society is designed to support a manic movement between frenzied action and desperate escape. And yet, it is hard to imagine someone at the end of her life wishing that she had spent more time being stressed, distracted or impatient. It is not required that you put off your life until the next weekend, vacation or anticipated event. It is possible to live a seamless life that is not chopped up into experiences you have to endure in order to get to the ones you enjoy. It just takes practice. What are you waiting for?

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.

Elbows and toes Sometimes the Carrizo Plain National Monument appears lifeless. With no significant rainfall at least the last three winters, the last of California’s historic grasslands are looking pretty dry. That doesn’t mean the habitat isn’t teeming with life, but I have to admit, if you’re not looking really hard you’re going to miss the wildlife out there. My wife, Lori, and I were passing through last mo n th, a nd i f she hadn’t been there I probably would’ve missed t h e e x t re m e l y rare opportunity to see one of the most endangered animals in California. When I’m driving, I rely on Lori to spot critters. She’s become really good at it. When she pointed these animals out to me on my side of Soda Lake Road, I couldn’t make out what they were. There were two of them, probably mates, and they had flattened themselves on the ground. It was their ears that confounded me. They were large and pointed. They huddled together but there was virtually no cover between us and them. They were somewhere between 50 and 75 yards west of the road where I stopped my truck. Once I parked my truck, I thought for sure they would bolt, but they lay there motionless. Through my binoculars I studied their size and colors. After eight years of coming to the Carrizo Plain, we were finally catching a glimpse of the rare San Joaquin kit fox, two of them no less. With no cover between us, the big question was how do I get some photos of one of North America’s smallest canid species? Their buff, tan or yellowish-gray fur serves them well, allowing them to blend in to the Carrizo Plain, but these two were relatively out in the open.

After I parked, I quickly realized I wasn’t getting any images from my truck. They were too far out. So I tried approaching at their level. I thought once I opened my truck door they would flee, and one did, diving into an undetectable den literally several feet away. however, one stayed, and later on we figured it was the male. San Joaquin kit foxes use many dens during the year and are typically nocturnal. It’s not uncommon for kit foxes to CHUCK use up to 24 dens at a GRAHAM time. They use their dens to keep cool during the summer and warm in the winter, and to keep them safe from predators, mainly coyotes. Usually they use dens constructed by other animals. Like other wildlife, rain has a lot to do with fox population densities. San Joaquin kit fox numbers rise and fall with the amount of annual rainfall. More rain means more kit foxes, and less means fewer foxes. Unfortunately their numbers are far less with the transformation of the Central Valley from open grasslands to orchards, track homes and roads. These dramatic changes make it difficult for kit foxes to find mates and food. Poisons used to kill rats and mice have also thinned kit fox populations, but a recent decision by the federal government to limit the use of these poisons will hopefully help. For the next 30 minutes I belly crawled to get within a reasonable distance of this particular kit fox. At any moment I expected it to take off and follow its mate in the nearby den. Instead it didn’t flinch, remaining flat on the ground. I took a shot here and there just so I had something to look at if it ran away, and still it didn’t budge. at one point I thought something was wrong with it. As I crawled closer, I watched it through my 300mm lens; its

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California eyes were partially shut as if it were about to take a nap. Finally it lifted its head and looked at me with some intent. at this point I had crawled at least 40 yards. I was getting closer and getting some decent shots. Then it stood up and I could see its beautiful colors in the morning light. It trotted off toward the southwest, and I slowly moved away. I was content with what

I got and made a mental note of where their den was. hopefully the next time we come out we’ll see them again along with a litter of pups.

CVN hits Portlandia

Marla and Daniel Perez represented Carpinteria in Portland, Ore., at the end of January. The couple’s son and some former Carpinteria friends moved north, so the Perezes ventured to Portland to check out the environs. They whipped out CVN at Multnomah Falls. Their Portland friends relished the Rincon Classic coverage. “Portland has some beautiful sites, great eats and breweries, but we love Carp!” commented the Perezes.

DOBBINS

Canalino School first-graders Aiden Alcaraz, pictured in a blue sweatshirt, and Ramses Ramirez, in a red shirt, dig into a tree-planting project with their classmates and Common Vision and Let’s Grow educators on Feb. 21. Nine new fruit trees found new homes in the school yard, and students made signs to identify the new trees. Common Vision is a garden education nonprofit based in Northern California. Let’s Grow is a Santa Barbara-based organization that manages school gardens.

Encore! Encore!

A diversity of objects are common at the beach, but rarely does one find a piano in the sand. Such was the case, however, last week when photographer Craig Chambers happened to come across a piano at Rincon Cove being put to good use by Josh Rosenkrantz. Fresh off a surf session, Karen, pictured above, as well as others on the beach enjoyed the impromptu recital. Chambers learned that the piano had been left there after a memorial service on Feb. 9 for Santa Barbara artist and surfer Robert Heeley.
