Trio of projects gets ARB nod

This week’s listings on the back page

Let it grow

Faith Lutheran proposes parsonage

The  pastor  at  Faith  Lutheran  Church  is  one  step  closer  to  a  50-yard  commute.  On  March  27,  the  Carpinteria Architectural review Board recommended preliminary approval for plans to construct a parsonage on the southwest corner of the church property, accessible through a driveway off Ogan Road.  If approved as planned, the parsonage will consist  of a single story, 2,219-square-foot modular home and  484-square-foot garage. The church intends to remove  eight of its 58 avocado trees in order to make way for the construction.  John Welty represented Faith Lutheran at the public hearing and explained to ArB members that the proposed location was chosen for several reasons. The  trees in that area are not as healthy as the others, and  longterm plans include construction of a sanctuary in the southeast corner of the property.  The Planning Commission is tentatively scheduled to consider the project on May 5.

New Holly tower in the works

The city’s Parks and rec Department has set its sites on improving the Holly Avenue lifeguard tower,  a project that was generally well-received by the ArB on March 27. Plans include a 10-foot by 14-foot storage room beneath the lifeguard kiosk and observation deck. The proposed kiosk includes wood siding and  large glass windows on all sides. Plans call for the new  tower to be constructed in approximately the same area as the existing one, though its 19-foot height is three  feet taller than the current tower. City Planner nick Bobroff noted that the proposed tower is very similar in style and function to the existing tower on Ash Avenue. ARB members supported the  project but suggested a more decorative base, given the  tower’s visibility from the parking lot.

M3 mixed-use moves forward

Plans for the mixed-use project proposed by M3 Multifamily  at  4819  Carpinteria Ave.  received  an  inprogress review by the ARB on March 27, and board  members generally liked what they saw. The review  gave applicants a chance to have new details considered by the ArB before investing in full working drawings by architects and engineers. M3 Multifamily, a Santa Barbara-based company that  purchases and manages apartment complexes, owns  the vacant lot and plans to construct an 8,080-squarefoot  building  with  retail  space  on  the  ground  floor,  office space above and two one-bedroom apartments  behind the offices on the second floor. M3 plans to occupy the offices.  The ArB will review the plans once more when details have been finalized and the M3 is ready to for  building permits.

Joel Conroy

Isla and Othello Gonzalez, grandchildren of B&G Color Nursery owners Jorge and Irma Gonzalez, lead Coastal View News photographer Joel Conroy on a mini-tour of B&G during the March 29 Carpinteria Greenhouse and Nursery Tour. Six local nurseries opened their doors to the public that day to showcase the start-to-finish process of growing flowers—as well as succulents, lettuce and other products—in Carpinteria. More photos from the tour can be seen on pages 12 and 13.

Deputy Banks lauded for community service

Homegrown Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Banks was honored on March 27 as the lions Club’s 2013 outstanding Public Safety officer. Banks, the son of recently retired Chief Deputy Geoff Banks,  has worked for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department since 2006 and is currently a Special Duty Deputy and Detective Investigator. Funding cuts at the Carpinteria Substation during  the recession led Banks to take on the tasks typically assigned to a community resource deputy, station sergeant and detective.  “In reality, he is performing the duties of most of the eliminated  positions and is doing the work of three people at times,” stated  a press release from the Lions. Banks was instrumental in developing  the  “Coffee  with  a  Cop”  program,  which  has  now  been  replicated  throughout  the  county.  He  is  also  a  member  of  the  department’s SWAT team.  The  annual  officer  award  is  given  to  promote  community  awareness of the security, emergency services and professionalism provided to the people of the Carpinteria Valley. This year,  nominations  were  submitted  from  the  Sheriff’s  Department,  Carpinteria-Summerland Fire District, the California State Parks  and the California Highway Patrol.

briefly Shift to Seaside Shuttle schedule recommended

In April, the Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District board of directors will consider a slight change to the Seaside Shuttle schedule, a reduction from five loops after 5 p.m. to four. Motivated by the rush-hour traffic delays that affect the current schedule, the proposed change would allow for 25-minute loops through Carpinteria in order to avoid delays and missed trips. A recent MTD meeting to gather community input led staff to the recommended change, according to a press release. If approved, new schedules would be effective on Aug. 25. To comment on any of the proposed schedule revisions, call MTD at 963-3364, email info@sbmtd.gov, or write to SBMTD, 550 Olive Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

Ground to break on Casas de las Flores

For the next phase in the Carpinteria Camper Park’s conversion from squalid to splendid, ground will break on the Casas de las Flores project, a 43-unit affordable housing development run down by Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, on April 10, at 11:30 a.m. Peoples’ purchased the 2.5-acre property in 2003, when it included 80 households. Those families have been moved off site, many into other Peoples’ complexes, including the recently opened Dahlia Court Expansion. Construction on the new apartments is expected to last about 15 months. The completed development will include a large youth learning center with classrooms and a computer lab, offices for a property manager and social workers, clinic space and a community meeting room with a commercial kitchen. The complex will also include a playground, walking path, open space and bioswale area. The Casas de las Flores site is located at 4096 Via Real. To attend the groundbreaking, RSVP to 699-7220 by April 7.

Sign-ups open for Relay For Life teams

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Carpinteria is a few months away, and teams are invited to register now at relayforlife.org/carpinteriaca for the July event. The 24-hour walking relay, which starts on July 19 at 9 a.m. and ends on July 20, brings the Carpinteria community together to celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease. This year’s event will take place at Aliso School, where participants will take turns walking the track and enjoying entertainment, activities and food. “Relay For Life brings the progress against cancer to the forefront,” said Carol Johansen, event chair. “Many participants are our family, friends, and neighbors who have dealt with cancer themselves. Their involvement is proof of the progress that has been not only reducing death rates, but also in the quality of life following cancer treatment.” To find out more or to register by phone, call the American Cancer Society at 963-1577.

Get the fracking facts straight

In their half-page ad in the March 20 issue of CVN, Venoco states that the process of hydraulic fracturing is “... subjected to extensive state and federal regulations including the Clean water (sic) Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act.” In fact, according to the EPA: “Congress provided for exclusions to Underground Injection Control authority (SDWA § 1421(d)), however, with the most recent language added via the Energy Policy Act of 2005: “The term ‘underground injection’ – (A) means the subsurface emplacement of fluids by well injection; and (B) excludes – (i) the underground injection of natural gas for purposes of storage; and (ii) the underground injection of fluids or propping agents (other than diesel fuels) pursuant to hydraulic fracturing operations related to oil, gas, or geothermal production activities.” This is the well-known Halliburton Loophole. Other exemptions are also present in the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. For Venoco to cite the law as a reason to feel comforted by tight regulations is a prime example of the distortions promoted by the oil industry.

Should you also feel comforted by their statement that all the wells being fracked are isolated from our aquifers by “impermeable rock barriers”? Or that they don’t really use much water at all, or that there is hardly any leakage of methane into the air, or that high intensity petroleum operations that inject steam, acid, water and volatile chemicals into the ground are a good way to grow a healthy economy and will not affect our earthquake faults or adversely impact our scenic vistas, agriculture and tourism? And can you take comfort in claims that it doesn’t matter to the climate if we keep adding more and more carbon to the atmosphere? No, I think you should not take comfort in these claims, as they can be proven false and serve only the interests of a few and not the society as a whole.

Water calculations don’t add up

I don’t understand. Several years ago many people voted for State Water in times of drought. Since that time we have been paying a disproportionate rate on

our water bill for this privilege. (Mine is about six times the amount of my water usage charges.) Now we have a drought and we are not getting State Water (but rest assured we are still paying for it). We are told we will need to cut back 20 percent more (and some of us did this at the beginning of the drought) and that our water bill will increase again. On top of this, the city still entertains plans to build more houses and hotels on the bluffs and elsewhere? So I have to pay more so some developer can make money from a hotel/resort that will use a ton of precious water? I grew up in Carpinteria, and we used to have a six foot water table and plenty of water. Now we are in short supply, pay through the nose for water we aren’t getting and we want more people using that water? I don’t understand.

The road (currently) less traveled

We definitely need leadership change. There is a fork ahead on the political road. I respect those who disagree, but I genuinely believe President Obama, along with local and state representatives (Capps, Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi) are leading us towards the left fork of shifting power from the people to the government. Increasing dependency on government to control essential things in our lives (health care, for instance), an anti-business (profit) attitude, a disre-

gard for the Constitution, uncontrolled spending, weakening the military and the middle class (yes, that is exactly what is happening despite claims to the contrary), mindless welfare programs that merely involve a redistribution of money and do nothing to promote individual initiative, little transparency (despite promises to the contrary), poor leadership at the global level and scandals—this is not the fork I want our nation to take. I prefer the right fork—the antithesis of all of the above. Regardless of political affiliation, I encourage future voters to take time to “look beneath the surface” of the seemingly wonderful-sounding items promoted by the present administration. Consider your children and grandchildren; their future welfare and happiness is clearly dependent on the fork we choose. I do suggest a solid financial education since it will be necessary for them to resolve the present financial messes our politicians have created. I personally feel we have an obligation to choose the fork that will not compound the future difficulty our young citizens will encounter. I encourage readers to research recent writings of Dr. Ben S. Carson. He provides clear and very understandable reasons why we need to choose the right fork if we want to preserve the greatness that is the United States. I hope you make a wise choice, whatever it may be. Know the road ahead!

Coastal View News welcomes your letters

the summerland shore FRAN DAVIS

Lost in boyland My grandsons moved in with us during their spring break from school. Their parents, my daughter and son-in-law, handed over the kids and dog when they flew off to the Caribbean for some R & R. A seismic shakeup occurs in your routine once kids move back into your lives. Your house begins to resemble a semi-permanent refugee camp, a shifting borderland where simple objects like books, clothing, dishes, towels and pillows are in constant, bewildering motion. Alex is 12 going on 16 and Adrian is 8 going on 6, and together they are capable of massive environmental impacts. Forget using your own computer. (To write this I had to barricade the door with an overturned chair.) No matter what you cook, someone won’t like it. This is complicated by the fact that one is a vegetarian, and the other eats only meat. There is the constant and unrelenting issue of boredom, especially if computer games are not readily available. The dog they brought along, which I’ve taken to calling Wild Dog, yips like a coyote, brings branches into the house to eat and peels tennis balls with his teeth. My dog Gracie, usually a well-behaved little girl, growls whenever he lurches into view. His name is Merlin, and I can tell you he bears no resemblance whatsoever to the wizard in the King Arthur story—unless you count leaping onto beds in the middle of the night as a kind of magic act. Adrian and I took the dogs for a walk on the bluffs, and Adrian regaled me the whole time with Minecraft stories. I won’t allow Minecraft to be installed on my computer, so he recounted YouTube

stories he’d seen about the game. There was a complicated tale of two guys building a castle made of meat, which I had a hard time imagining. Adrian is engaging and talkative, but I miss about 90 percent of his references. I have to be content with really appreciating the enthusiasm he brings to the topic. I had the brilliant idea of taking the train from Carp to LA. My husband and I have taken the Surfliner down there for day trips and loved it. I’m now calling the train trip with the boys “the $300 day.” I performed my grandmotherly duties, pointing out ocean views, surfers, campgrounds, workers in strawberry fields, the big rocks past Simi where they used to film Westerns. Adrian was more interested in opening and closing the curtains on the windows, and Alex texted friends on his phone. They did like the snack bar, however. My grandsons failed to be impressed by the architecture of Union Station, although I pointed out its Art Deco features. We commenced a grand walking tour of downtown LA, starting with a gallery of art by women in El Pueblo (the old section by Olvera Street). A docent had to caution the boys against wrestling on the floor. After that, the two pretty much fought their way through the rest of the day, with the big kid leaning on the little kid a lot and the little kid wailing back with fists. I have some pictures of this—souvenirs of the day. By a fountain in the much-touted Grand Park (a stretch of landscaped green between city hall and the music center), their tussles attracted the attention of a security guard, who ordered them away from the fountain’s edge.

Letters must include your name, address, phone number and signature. Letters are subject to editing. Letters over 300 words will be edited in length. Email news@coastalview.com Personally, I enjoyed the park, which has several flashy fountains and specimen trees from around the world. The whole length is strewn with bright pink, heavy metal tables and chairs that invite sitting. Alex said he liked the park’s court of flags—all of our country’s flags since Revolutionary times waving from poles. He thought the “Don’t Tread On Me” flag with the snake was a joke, though. The lower section had a row of food booths where office workers from the surrounding buildings were having lunch. This attracted the boys’ attention, so we ate there, too. There was, in fact, a lot of stopping to eat or drink, like every half hour or so. I don’t think they noticed much else. They were oblivious to the curvy silver façade of the Disney Concert Hall until I commanded them to fix their eyes on it. Adrian’s interest picked up when he spotted a Panda Express not far from the Museum of Contemporary Art (we knew not to try for that experience), but it was too early for dinner. We were disappointed to find Angel’s Flight out of service (the funicular that operates on Bunker Hill) and had to take the stairs down to Third Street to visit the Grand Central Market. There we collapsed onto chairs for horchata and pastry. It was pretty much a blur after that. I know we had quite a struggle buying tap cards to use with the Metro. I have a great photo of Adrian sitting on the subway floor. We managed to take the subway back to Union Station and made our way to Olvera Street to have dinner. I thought the kids would enjoy all the cute stands selling Mexican merchandise, but I was wrong again. I actually felt I needed and deserved the margarita I had with dinner. After a long train ride back, during which Adrian amused himself by putting his jacket sleeves on his legs and asking “how much longer” a dozen times, we

made it home. The dogs had had a marvelous time alone in the house for the day, and we were greeted by a room full of white stuffing from eviscerated toys, torn paper and left-over candy wrappers. Alex had left a bag of candy unsecured, and the dogs ate all of it, leaving bare lollipop sticks and even gum wrappers. We humans were weary, but the dogs, high on sugar, were overjoyed to have us back, and spent the night running up and down stairs, leaping from bed to bed, barking. One good thing: The sometimes subtle joys of grandparenthood.

Cut the cord, tie the knot for the health of it! ALI JAVANBAKHT, MD

SuBMITTed pHOTO

Architect Dylan Chappell, left, and Alex Hamadi, co-owner of the new Linden Avenue eatery Beach Bowl, put the finishing touches on the business’s sustainable interior design.

Beach Bowl readies to open

Beach Bowl, the new eatery at 901 Linden Ave., is slated to open its doors April 15 and unveil a menu that includes acai berry and pittaya bowls, smoothies, cold pressed juices and coffee. This is the first retail venture for local co-owners Alex Hamadi and Kamel Mehai, who is a nutritionist for the film industry. Beach Bowl owners have demonstrated a commitment to green practices and the Carpinteria economy. Many of the café’s ingredients are organic, and owners have locally sourced materials, goods and services. Carpinteria architect dylan Chappell designed the business’s clean modern interior, local contractors George Manuras and Gregg Carty built out Beach Bowl, and Brothers of Industry manufactured the reclaimed and repurposed light fixtures. “We wanted a local beachy vibe,” said Hamadi. He added that the refurbished concrete with blue epoxy floor is “like walking on water.” In addition to its diverse menu, Beach Bowl will sell locally made food products such as its own own chocolate brand handcrafted by Chocolats du CaliBressan. The eatery will include five outdoor tables, and inside, there will be two televisions and wi-fi access. Opening time will be 5:30 a.m., and closing time is planned for 10 p.m. on weeknights and midnight on weekends.

Biz banks on life settlements

Carpinterian Stuart Hutchison, whose long resume includes real estate, professional tennis and professional drumming, is now focused on a new business aimed at raising the net worth of his clients. Total Financial portfolio Coaching and Total Life Categories Coaching gives investors opportunities to become fractional share owners of life insurance policies for terminally ill patients. In these “life settlements,” patients sell their policies to a third party for more than their insurance carrier would cash out, and after the patient’s death, the insurance payout is divided among the third party investors. Hutchison said investors can expect at least a 12 to 14 percent return annually. Hutchison is conducting coaching sessions in a private setting at the Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel in Montecito. To find out more, call Hutchison at 698-5778.

919 Boutique to hold sale, close doors

Carpinteria must say goodbye to the short-lived 919 Boutique…in the Alley, a home décor shop that opened in december and will close its doors for good after Friday, April 4. Owner Sheri Freitag said that business never took off at the small shop’s off-the-beaten-path location on Yucca Lane. Before she shutters the shop she will host a closing sale, with prices slashed by 50 percent or more. After her brick and mortar store is closed, however, Freitag said she will continue to offer “home decor specializing in beach and bar accessories and positive and inspirational things” at boutiqueinthealley.com.

There is a large discrepancy in fashion choices between men and women. For women, there are blouses, camisoles, halter tops, cardigans, tube tops, flutter sleeve, sleeveless and three-quarters sleeve. For men, there are shirts and ties. This discrepancy somehow carries over into contraception. Women have at their disposal pills, shots, patches, vaginal rings, cervical caps, diaphragms, gels, foams, intrauterine devices and surgical sterilization, aka “tube tying.” Men can choose from condoms or a vasectomy. In order to understand what a vasectomy is, we must first understand what is that is getting “-ectomy”ed. The “vas” in “vasectomy” refers to the “vas deferens.” In order to understand the vas deferens we must first understand that, like “fish,” the singular and plural of “vas deferens” are the same. As in, “After each vas deferens was cut, both vas deferens were cauterized.” However, this does not mean that a group of vas deferens would be called a “school.” In fact, we don’t have a term for a group of vas deferens because the situation has never come up. But I digress. So a vasectomy is removing, aka “-ectomy”ing, the vas deferens. The vas deferens are the tubes that connect the testicles to the urethra. They can be easily felt through the scrotum. They are the hard tubes above each testicle. The vas deferens’ job is to move sperm from the testicles to the urethra. The urethra is the large tube that carries forth all emissions from the male nether regions. When a man goes in for a vasectomy, he lies down on the exam table. The urologist or family physician feels the vas deferens through the scrotum. He/ she then numbs the skin with lidocaine, makes a small incision, pulls out the vas deferens through said incision and then cuts the vas deferens. Some physicians remove a segment of the vas, creating a gap between the two ends. Some burn the ends and/or tie them with sutures. It’s like bombing a bridge, trampling the debris with tanks, then washing it all away with a flood. All are measures to prevent the bridge from re-building itself, which the vas deferens have been known to do. The risks of the procedure are fairly small. There is a very minor risk of bleeding or infection. Some men get a spermatocele, aka ball of sperm, at the spot where the vas is cut. One can imagine the sperm waiting at the site, looking at their watches, tapping their feet, and texting other sperm wondering what the hold up is. But that would be incorrect. Sperm do not text message. Almost always, the spermatocele causes no symptoms and needs no treatment.

This brings up a very common question, “What happens to the sperm that can’t get out?” The same thing that happens when a man is abstinent. Sperm have a very short shelf-life. If they sit around too long, they start to get abnormal or die. So the body, after a few days, breaks down the sperm and sells the parts to the testicles. Those parts are used to make more sperm. As for the patient, everything else stays the same. Sexual function does not change in any way except for shooting “blanks.” In other words, the mail is still delivered, but the envelopes are empty. Recovery time from the surgery is relatively quick as well. Men who don’t do heavy labor usually get the procedure done on a Friday and, after a weekend with ice and anti-inflammatories, are back on the job on Monday without even walking funny. So the next time one’s flipping through the “Contraceptives Today” catalog, one can skip the page on men’s contraception because nothing will be different. But if a man is absolutely certain he desires no more offspring, the vasectomy is a viable and reliable option that will not diminish one’s passion for football or NASCAR, nor will it spur a sudden interest in interior design.

Reader poll eliminates the rest CVN REPORT

Five weeks of tournament madness ended with Beach Liquor, where burrito quality belies the hole-in-the-wall, liquor store ambience, being crowned local Burrito Madness champion. The final tally of reader votes from online and paper balloting eliminated fellow finalist Oaxaca Fresh and named Beach Liquor as the best place in Carpinteria Valley to enjoy Mexican food bound in a tortilla. The tournament, modeled after the NCAA’s March Madness, started with a field of 16 on March 6, and the number of competitors was halved each week through reader polling until Beach Liquor edged Oaxaca Fresh on April 1. Beach Liquor burrito chef Adan Morales described the final week of competition as “exciting” and said he was very happy to learn that Beach Liquor had claimed the title. Morales boasts a 16-year history of serving up tasty plates at the local eatery and has a faithful following as evidenced by online voting and comments. The hard working and humble Morales, who said the secret to a great burrito is in the way its rolled, gave credit to the other members of his kitchen team: Metodia Vences, Beto Alfaro, Ismael Navarro, Maria and Daniel. From meat-less creations to carne asada, readers commented that Beach Liquor’s fresh ingredients and balanced flavors won them over. “The veggie burrito always is delicious with the right combination of rice, beans, cheese and cabbage and pico de gallo,” commented one reader. The Carnitas burrito and its “good tasty pork” earned another reader’s vote. Breakfast burritos and the mashed potatoes inside also are popular items at Beach Liquor. Oaxaca Fresh earned its love from specialty sauces that top its menu of authentic Mexican cuisine wrapped in warm tortillas. The estofado and mole sauces, both slow simmered in house, won points with online votes. Estofado sauce incorporates banana and raisin flavors for a complex sweet/savory sauce with a depth of flavor atypical of quick, tinfoil wrapped fare. Oaxaca’s following comes more from dine-in patrons than those looking for to-go breakfast and lunch options.

The elimination of those two Liquor restaurants, along with popular Delgado’s City Taco Restaurant missing the cut from the Elite Eight Market Grande the previous week, drew the ire of many readers whose hearts and guts swear by the burrito prowess Tinkers of those fallen eateries. Delgado's To tally the winner, CVN used online voting hosted by Cabo's Grill Survey Monkey and paper ballots both printed in the newspaper and distributed within the restaurants. Beach Liquor Delgado's consistently maintained a spot in the top vote getters every week. While restaurant cheerleading and get-out-the-vote efforts factored into results, a trend in voter sentiments demonstrated that Beach Liquor had the most dedicated fans. Beach Liquor had also won a vote of confidence from a New York Times travel story about Carpinteria in 2013 that celebrated the quirky-yet-quality eatery hidden within its corner liquor store façade.

“The Marina at Night,” by Danielle Renee Methmann

Methmann returns to art scene

Photos by Danielle Renee Methmann have found venues for display in both Carpinteria and Summerland. The native Carpinterian recently returned to her hometown from Santa Monica, where she had worked as an award-winning television producer, to pursue her first love, photography. Methmann photos are currently on display at Café Luna in Summerland and at Carpinteria Arts Center. Her photography, inspired by the natural and capturing moments in time, is described as “So Cal laid back imagery” fusing texture and contrast. Methmann also joined the Carpinteria Arts Center board of directors in February and will be part of the rebranding effort at Carpinteria’s arts nonprofit.

Bloom where you’re planted PHOtOS By JOEL CONrOy Chemistry, biology and physics all had their place in the March 29 Carpinteria Greenhouse and Nursery Tour, but participants will best recall the colors, shapes and smells that result from all the science behind local growing operations. The tour, now in its sixth year, showcased six local growers: B&G Color Nursery, Gallup & Stribling Orchids, Myriad Flowers, Maximum Nursery, Westland Orchids and Westerlay Orchids. Hundreds of tour-goers hopped from nursery to nursery to catch a glimpse of the stunning products grown in Carpinteria and learn about what goes in to each impressive bloom.

Neighborly nuisance

In a neighbor-on-neighbor report of alleged vandalism, the victim said he watched as his 45-year-old male neighbor—and longtime adversary—scrawled on his vehicle causing $800 in damages. The alleged victim said he returned to his Dorrance Way home on March 22 and saw the neighbor in question urinating toward the rear of the building. Rather than pull into a parking space and chance an encounter with the neighbor, he left the vehicle on the street where he could see it from his apartment. Peering out his window, he saw that the neighbor had finished urinating and meandered near to his vehicle. First the man crouched near the back tire, and then he looped the vehicle as if dragging a sharp object across the paint. The victim later told deputies that he did not attempt to stop the vandalism from progressing because he feared an altercation would escalate with the likely intoxicated neighbor. After the incident, he went outside to discovered scratches to his paint and screws planted under his tires. The victim said he did not want to press charges but was most interested

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

in being compensated for the damages. Deputies knocked at the neighbor’s door and asked why he had been scratching his neighbor’s vehicle. The suspect, who smelled of alcohol, denied scratching or planting screws. However, when told there’d been a witness, he told deputies he would pay for damages to placate whoever said he had scratched the vehicle. Still, he denied scratching the vehicle. The deputy said he was asking the district attorney’s office to prosecute the vandalism in order to ensure that the victim would be reimbursed.

California roll

A deputy patrolling a Via Real motel on March 20 at 12:45 a.m. spotted a vehicle rolling into the parking lot and looping back to the exit as soon as it saw the lawman observing the premises. Thinking he had spooked a potential criminal, the deputy followed the vehicle and witnessed it roll through two stops before pulling it over for the suspected “California rolls.” At the driver’s window, the deputy noted that both the driver, a 49-year-old man, and the passenger, a 23-year-old

woman, appeared tense. Their clenched jaws and sweaty brows led the deputy to suspect they were high on meth. A search of the driver revealed small empty baggies, which the officer recognized as baggies typically used in the drug trade. A look into the vehicle revealed how the baggies had lost their contents. Shards of meth covered the driver’s seat. Deputies then did a more thorough search that turned up four small sacks of cocaine hidden within a pack of gum. Also, the driver possessed two cell phones, which contained messages in drug dealing lingo. Deputies booked the man for possession wtih intent to distribute. The young woman riding shotgun was also taken away for allegedly being under the influence of meth.

Center lane

A deputy patrolling Linden Avenue at 11:30 p.m. on March 22 noticed an oncoming vehicle stopped in a center left-turn lane; however, well after the deputy had passed, it remained in that turn lane despite the absence of any other vehicles on the road. The deputy turned around to investigate the center-lane parker at the intersection of Linden Avenue and Nipomo Drive. Two men occupied the vehicle, and the driver explained that he had stopped in order to pick up his passenger. As deputies spoke to the vehicle occupants, they began to notice the passenger pawing at his door handle. The furtive finger pressing looked to deputies as if the man was trying to shove something behind the

plastic fixture. The deputy ordered the man to stop and place his hands in the air. The man reportedly said, “It’s mine man,” before explaining that he is not a violent person, just a run-of-the-mill drug addict. Deputies discovered he had in fact been trying to conceal a small amount of cocaine into a crease behind the door handle. The driver said he had just picked up the passenger, who was walking home from a bar and called for a ride. The cocaine-possessing passenger was arrested.

Warrior golf picks up three straight Ws before spring break BY PETER DUGRÉ

Through its first 10 results, Warrior golf has posted a split 5-5 record, including rattling off three straight wins. A big reason for the recent surge is senior Ian Craddock, who took last golf season off to run track before deciding to participate in both sports this spring. Craddock is joined by fellow experienced golfers Matt Coeler and Rafi Gonzalez, who have paced the squad over its recent string of success. Craddock shot an 84 and was medalist in a March 25 threesome against Santa Clara and Nordhoff high schools. “Whenever (Craddock) doesn’t have a track obligation, we’ll take him,” commented assistant golf coach Johnny Ward. “He’s a big boost to the team.” As a team, the Warriors posted a 472 over the par 71 18 holes to scores of 523 and 529 for Nordhoff and SCHS, respectively. Coeler shot a 90 followed by 98s for Taylor Hodgins and Gonzalez. Austin Lubeck had a 102 in the winning effort. Ward commented that increased golf participation has fueled healthy competition among teammates vying to be in the starting lineup. Also, the team has enjoyed golfers who have developed over several years in the CHS program, like Hodgins, who’s in his third year, and Gonzales, who played last year. “Almost everyone is back from last year; for some kids it’s their third year with us,” explained Ward. In years past, the team has had mostly first-year golfers. Cameron Cobb is also in his third year. Coeler led the team with an 88 on his score card in a 488-507 victory over Bishop Diego High School on March 27 at Montecito Country Club. Tri-Valley League play starting on April 8 presents a new challenge for the Warrior squad. The team hosts a TVL match on April 8 and will have its work cut out for it against Oaks Christian, Oak Park, St. Bonaventure, Villanova and Grace Brethren. The team travels to Rancho San Marcos for another match against Bishop on April 24.

Carpinteria High School

Boys baseball

March 26 – Warrior baseball picked up a 10-3 home victory over Santa Paula High School on the arms of senior pitchers Mo Sanchez and Duncan Gordon. David Martinez blasted a three-run homerun in the sixth inning. Sanchez picked up his second win by throwing four innings and yielding four hits and three runs while striking out four. Then Gordon came on and stymied the Cardinals with his knuckleball. Javier Jasso, Kevin Stein and Salvador Delgado each had two hits. “Every victory is important. We are trying to win at bats, situations and innings on offense and are still settling in on defense,” coach Pat Cooney commented. The Warriors will face Santa Paula in Tri-Valley League contests, but this match counted only toward the team’s 3-4 pre-league record.

Boys tennis

March 25 – Warrior boys tennis picked up its first Tri-Valley League victory, winning 17-1 at Nordhoff High School. Singles player Collin Nathanson won his three sets, and Ben Murray and Jonathan Cleek won two apiece. “Each player was able to try different strategies today with positive results,” commented coach Charles Bryant. In doubles, number two Ruben Andrade/Bryan Taira and number three Jacob Ascencio/ Sam Truax each went 3-0. The Warriors are now 6-3 overall and 1-1 in Tri-Valley League. March 27 – Warrior boys tennis was bested 15-3 in a Tri-Valley League match at Oak Park High School. Coach Charles Bryant commended the play of doubles team Ruben Andrade/Bryan Taira who went 1-2, despite playing some of their best tennis. Collin Nathanson/Jonathan Cleek went 1-2 in doubles and narrowly lost two sets by 6-4 counts. Number one singles Jacob Ascencio picked up the last point with a 6-4 win. CHS stood at 6-4 overall and 1-2 in the TVL.

Cate School

Girls lacrosse

March 26 – Cate girls lacrosse defeated Newbury Park 9-5 at Newbury Park. “The girls earned every draw and played hard for 50 minutes,” commented coach Renee Mack. Victoria Herman, Hannah Barr and Anna Graves stood out for their endurance and grit in the midfield, according to Mack. “All three players made critical connections, passes and plays to advance the ball into the attack area,” she said. Seven separate players scored goals. Goalkeeper Jess Liou recorded six saves.

March 25 – Warrior softball lost 18-2 in a tough outing against Tri-Valley League powerhouse Oak Park High School. Oak Park pounced with five runs and six hits in the first inning. Bright spots for the Warriors were Hannah Galsterer who batted 3-for-4 with an RBI and Paulina Barbosa who went 2-for-3 also with an RBI. The Warriors were able to reach base but stranded 10 runners. The team’s record fell to 2-13 overall and 0-3 in TVL. March 27 – Warrior softball was outgunned in a 14-0 defeat at the hands of Oaks Christian High School, one of the best teams in the state and country, according to coach Henry Gonzales. The Warriors had zero hits and were plagued by eight errors. The team’s record fell to 3-15 overall and 0-4 in TVL.

March 29 – Cate girls lacrosse defeated visiting Birmingham Charter 7-4. Cate led just 3-2 at halftime and benefited from the strong play of goalie Jess Liou, who had a total of seven saves. Sam Hill and Erika Noble scored two goals each, and Anna Graves, Hannah Barr and Taylor Bigony scored one apiece. Cate and Birmingham were evenly matched, so Cate had to earn the victory, according to coach Renee Mack. “The whole team played with exceptional heart, grit and great improvement,” she said. Cate improved to 4-0 to start the season.

Baseball

March 28 – Cate baseball defeated visiting St. Monica Academy 8-2. The Rams jumped on the board in the second inning with an RBI single by Duffy Montgomery. Joel Revo followed with a single to score two more. Montgomery added two RBI in the third. Carlos Fairbanks scored on a wild pitch in the fourth and highlighted a two-run sixth with his RBI triple. Zach Ell had two hits and a run. Fairbanks pitched five innings, striking out seven and yielding two runs to record the win. Revo, a freshman, recorded four strikouts in two innings of relief. The Ram defense turned a triple play in the third inning.

March 25 – Warrior boys volleyball hosted Oak Park High School and lost in three games (25-14, 25-11, 25-17). “The Warriors battled in all three games but the high flying Eagles were unstoppable,” commented coach Marc Denitz. The Warriors were led by Victor Saldana with five kills, Luis Ceja with four kills and Jesus Ortega with 16 assists. The Warriors managed to play even at 11-11 through the opening game but state-ranked OP soon exploited the Warriors’ relative inexperience, according to Denitz. The Warriors fell to 0-4.

2014 Honor Roll

On the first Thursday of each month Coastal View News publishes the Honor Roll to thank readers and advertisers for their generous support. Since 2009, this support has played a critical role in keeping Coastal View News in the stands each week and full of local news that cannot be found in any other news media. The outpouring of support inspired by the Honor Roll has established a deeper connection between the newspaper and its readers. Additionally, the hundreds of names that appear in the Honor Roll have also sent a message to advertisers—Carpinterians are dedicated to their local newspaper. In turn, the staff of Coastal View News is dedicated to its readers.

A recommendation from Carpinteria Library “A Lesson Before Dying,” by Ernest Gaines

Jefferson, a barely literate young man who innocently witnesses a shootout between a white storeowner and two black robbers, is convicted of murder. His incensed godmother, Miss Emma, turns to teacher Grant Wiggins, pleading with him to gain access to the jailed youth and help him to face his death by electrocution with dignity. Set in the late 1940s in rural Cajun Louisiana, “A Lesson Before Dying” spotlights the relationship between Jefferson and Wiggins, who feels mingled love, loyalty and hatred for the poor plantation community where he was born and raised. He longs to leave the South and is daunted by the level of leadership and involvement that helping Jefferson would require. Eventually, however, the two men, vastly different in potential yet equally degraded by racism, develop a relationship that transforms them both. Suspense rises as it becomes clear that the integrity of the entire local black community depends on Jefferson’s courage. Though the conclusion is inevitable, the story is emotionally powerful. ––Tara O’Reilly, supervising librarian, Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave.

A recommendation from Friends of the Carpinteria Library Used Book Store “Human Chain,” by Seamus Heaney

National Poetry Month is occasion to remember the work of the late Seamus Heaney. Heaney grew up in rural Northern Ireland during a time of unrest. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995 and took the opportunity to share “Crediting Poetry,” his wonderful meditation on poetry’s “truth to life, in every sense of that phrase.” Heaney credited poetry for its particular “power to persuade that vulnerable part of our consciousness of its rightness in spite of the evidence of wrongness all around it …” In his final book of poems, “Human Chain,” he refined a poetry of human connection and of connection to the natural world. In “A Herbal,” images of plants in a graveyard distill this connection to life and death between roots and leaves, literally “Me in place and the place in me.” Heaney’s work engages the day-to-day rituals of living—farming, drawing water at the wellhead, baking in a sunlit kitchen—with an accessible, plain-spoken reverence. Not sure you get or like poetry? Read or listen to something new at poetryfoundation.org/. ––Giti White, volunteer, Friends of the Carpinteria Library Used Book Store, 5103 Carpinteria Ave.

A student recommendation “Divergent,” by Veronica Roth

If you liked the movie, then you’ll love the book! This thrilling dystopian novel from Veronica Roth follows the adventures of Tris, a 16-year-old girl living in futuristic Chicago, where the people of the city have been divided up into five factions based on their predominant traits: bravery, kindness, selflessness, intelligence and honesty. Leaving behind her parents and brothers, Tris joins the faction Dauntless, composed of those who honor bravery above all else. At first, Tris is excited about her new life, but orientation is more difficult than she had originally thought, and the political dissent between different factions is slowly but surely leading to war in the city. Soon, Tris will have her loyalties tested, and she will learn that her greatest secret may just turn out to be her biggest strength. An action-packed novel with surprises and twists lurking behind every corner, “Divergent” will hook readers of all ages. This edgy, emotional thriller will capture your attention and leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more. ––Audrey Lent, student at Santa Barbara City College

Coastal View and Carpinteria Library Book Club “The Outlander,” by Gil Adamson

The year is 1903, and the setting is the western wilderness, where a 19-year-old widow is fleeing her ruthless pursuers, the brothers of the husband she killed. Readers of “The Outlander” by Gil Adamson are likely to find themselves quickly swept into this page-turning drama. Coastal View and Carpinteria Library

Staring into space is your job

PRACTICE

Set a timer for 10 minutes, then stare into space. You can go on a walk, but don’t check your email or login to Facebook. Just stare and think through your work in progress or a new story idea. After your time is up, spend at least five minutes free writing. When you’re finished, share your practice with a friend to get feedback. You can even share your practice on The Write Practice website at thewritepractice.com/more-space. Happy writing. Born and raised in Carpinteria, Joe Bunting now lives outside of Atlanta, Ga. with his wife and son. You can find more practical inspiration for your writing at thewritepractice.com.

Book Club is set to discuss the book at its next meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave. Anyone interested in reading and discussing the book is invited to attend the free gathering. “With the stunning prose and captivating mood of great works like Charles Frazier’s ‘Cold Mountain’ or early Cormac McCarthy, Gil Adamson’s intoxicating debut novel weds a brilliant literary style to the gripping tale of one woman’s desperate escape,” states an Amazon.com review.

A Beautiful Time to Start a Sustainable Garden s poppie autiful e B a d ri a te Carpin asitas Pass Ro on C

Joe De la Guerra cactus garden on La Manida

Joe De la Guerra took out his lawn 12 years ago. He turned the soil, worked in some diatomaceous earth, covered the area with gravel and started his cactus collection. “Most of my plants came from cuttings given to me by friends or other cactus lovers, so I didn’t spend a lot of money. My garden today is easy to take care of, really beautiful when it blooms, and I use ZERO WATER.”

There’s nothing like a drought to focus attention on water use. Predictions of more skimpy rain years to come have many of us thinking about how we might adjust, long term, to life in a drier climate. Fortunately, Carpinterians are already discovering clever ways to change their home landscapes to make them more water-wise and yet still beautiful. There are many great examples of sustainable gardens around town. We’ve chosen a few for inspiration and added tips from two experts on how to get started on one of your own. Happy gardening!

Mark & Marianne Rauch home on El Carro

In Mark Rauch’s garden, planting areas are separated by an attractive walkway and each has its own unique look. In the central area, Mark combines low growing aloes and blue fescue for their contrasting colors and similar water requirements. “I really enjoy caring for this garden. It does take a bit of water and occasional weeding, but I don’t miss the lawn mowing at all.”

Deana Rae McMillion’s experim ental “dry garden” on Aragon Drive

If removing your whole lawn sounds a little overwhelming, begin with a small “test garden” as Deana Rae McMillion did. “I started small with my favorite plants to see how they would adapt to the soil and sun exposure. They are thriving and grow so fast I have to occasionally cut them back. I water only about once every three months.”

ADVICE from Corey Welles, Plant Healthcare Coordinator at Lotusland: Consider this drought to be a great opportunity to redesign and renovate areas of your garden that have been neglected or suffered badly from the drought. I like to start with the worst corner of my garden, rip out the old plants whose time has gone by and replace them with groupings of natives, succulents, drought-tolerant Mediterranean plants or a clean rock design with gravel. Additionally, investing in glazed or terra cotta pots filled with succulents can really improve the appearance of the patio or entrance to your home and require infrequent watering. This is also a great time to transition your irrigation system over to drip and manually water prudently as needed. Don’t forget to amend the soil generously with compost for vegetable and cut flower gardens, making sure to locate them close to your house where they can be looked after properly. If we can keep the “high water” areas of our gardens to a minimum while expanding the “low water” elements, I think our gardens will thrive and remain the sanctuaries we need.

RIGHT: Water-wise, yet eye-catching and colorful, Corey Welles’ Cate Mesa garden is an inspiration.

going native? Here’s encouragement from Dr. Steve Windhager, Executive Director, SB Botanic Garden: One way to conserve water is by transitioning your garden to feature droughttolerant, climate appropriate California native plants. In the long term, native plants will not only save our community valuable water, they provide greater support for pollinators, improve wildlife habitat, and offer a unique sense of place like nowhere else in the world. Here is a list of five native plants that are readily available and will help your garden during these dry times: lemonade berry, ‘Ray Hartman’ California lilac,

‘Winnifred Gilman’ sage, ‘Howard McMinn’ manzanita, and redflowered buckwheat. Utilize the Botanic Garden as a resource by visiting our website at www.sbbg.org or speaking to one of our knowledgeable horticulture staff members the next time you visit.

Sponsor a Doggie Bag Dispenser

For over 20 years, Carpinteria Beautiful volunteers have been active in our community. We plant flowers & shrubs, pick up trash, commission decorative murals, raise money for trees, keep doggie bag dispensers filled, build community pride by showcasing local homes & gardens, create colorful bus benches and advocate for causes, such as the reusable bag program, all to protect the environment and beautify our town. We’ve even added a really cool ping pong table to the beach end of Linden. Please give it a try! If you have a Beautiful idea you’d like to work on, check our calendar and come to a meeting. Here are other ways to get involved and keep Carpinteria ‘clean, green & beautiful’:

Carpinteria is a great place to be a dog – as well as a dog owner. Our town has also become a much cleaner, healthier place as most dog walkers pick up after their pooches. We thank them! Responsible pet owners keep a ready supply of their own doggie waste bags, but if you find yourself short while out with Fido, the City of Carpinteria offers dog waste bag dispensers in several of the most popular dog walking areas in town. But these dispensers and the tens of thousands of bags supplied annually are expensive. To help offset that cost Carpinteria Beautiful financially sponsors four dispensers, and we invite you to do so too. By sponsoring a doggie bag dispenser, you, your family, your business or your community organization can help keep Carpinteria comfortable for both humans and our four-legged friends. Sponsorships are available right now. Your name or logo will appear on the dispenser to recognize your contribution. Special thanks go to the many Carpinteria Beautiful volunteers who make sure the dispensers stay filled and have relieved Public Works of this responsibility.

Nurture your Trees Trees benefit our community in a number of important ways. They absorb carbon and release oxygen. They trap air pollutants. They provide shade (thus conserving water) and habitat for wildlife. They also absorb street noise and cool the air around them. Trees add beauty to our urban landscapes and increase property values. Every tree planted is a commitment to the future. Over time and with proper care a sapling will become a sturdy tree. New trees in particular benefit from a solid base of mulch, regular deep watering, and removal of the nursery stake and the correct placement of optional tree stakes. Public street trees are planted and maintained by the City of Carpinteria’s Public Works Department, who provide every newly planted street tree with a year of regular watering and mulch. If there’s a City tree in front of your home, you can help. If it looks dry, give it a little extra water; if suckers come up at the base, you may remove them; if the tree appears diseased or unduly stressed, notify Public Works. And most importantly, after that first year of City care, give your tree regular water and Native oak saplings along Santa Monica Creek replenish the mulch. Your reward path, a joint project of Carpinteria Beautiful and will be a beautiful specimen tree the City of Carpinteria. that will enhance both your home and neighborhood and bring you years of enjoyment.

Jettison that Junk!

Every spring, Carpinteria residents are invited to clean out their homes, garages, storage bins and yards and take unwanted items and hazardous waste to City Hall for proper disposal. This annual program began as a Carpinteria Beautiful project, focusing solely on household goods and was such a success that the City took over and expanded it to include electronic items (e-waste) and household hazardous waste. Last year, more than a dozen roll-off dumpsters were filled with cast-off items in a single day. Best of all, it’s FREE to city residents. Join in Carpinteria’s citywide spring cleaning and bring your unwanted stuff to the Carpinteria Household Goods and Hazardous Waste Day: Saturday, April 12, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, at City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Avenue.

Adopt-A-spot

We’ve been working hard to make Carpinteria litter free. Over 50 of your friends and neighbors are already part of this successful program and are “on the Spot” keeping their adopted areas clean. They would love to have your help. Adopt your own Spot of Carpinteria as an individual or team up with family or friends. Students may earn community service hours as Adopt-aSpotters. We’ll provide a litter picker, safety vest & cap and get you started. It’s good exercise and we promise that you’ll really clean up!

Nurture your Trees Trees benefit our community in a number of important ways. They absorb carbon and release oxygen. They trap air pollutants. They provide shade (thus conserving water) and habitat for wildlife. They also absorb street noise and cool the air around them. Trees add beauty to our urban landscapes and increase property values. Every tree planted is a commitment to the future. Over time and with proper care a sapling will become a sturdy tree. New trees in particular benefit from a solid base of mulch, regular deep watering, and removal of the nursery stake and the correct placement of optional tree stakes. Public street trees are planted and maintained by the City of Carpinteria’s Public Works Department, who provide every newly planted street tree with a year of regular watering and mulch. If there’s a City tree in front of your home, you can help. If it looks dry, give it a little extra water; if suckers come up at the base, you may remove them; if the tree appears diseased or unduly stressed, notify Public Works. And most importantly, after that first year of City care, give your tree regular water and Native oak saplings along Santa Monica Creek replenish the mulch. Your reward path, a joint project of Carpinteria Beautiful and will be a beautiful specimen tree the City of Carpinteria. that will enhance both your home and neighborhood and bring you years of enjoyment.

Jettison that Junk!

Every spring, Carpinteria residents are invited to clean out their homes, garages, storage bins and yards and take unwanted items and hazardous waste to City Hall for proper disposal. This annual program began as a Carpinteria Beautiful project, focusing solely on household goods and was such a success that the City took over and expanded it to include electronic items (e-waste) and household hazardous waste. Last year, more than a dozen roll-off dumpsters were filled with cast-off items in a single day. Best of all, it’s FREE to city residents. Join in Carpinteria’s citywide spring cleaning and bring your unwanted stuff to the Carpinteria Household Goods and Hazardous Waste Day: Saturday, April 12, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, at City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Avenue.

A Beautiful Opportunity!

Every November, thanks to the generosity of S&S Seeds, Carpinteria Beautiful volunteers package up California Poppy seeds and distribute the free packets through local merchants. We encourage planting the seed where it may be enjoyed by all, and the beautiful results are now popping up all around town. Enjoy!

This gorgeous hand-made quilt, adorned with whimsical birds guaranteed to make you smile, was donated to us by Carpinteria’s own Knotty Threads Quilting Friends – and with a little luck it could be yours! Lovingly stitched by 18 talented quilters, the work will make its official debut during April, Carpinteria Beautiful Month. The quilt will be on display at Roxanne’s, A Wish and a Dream, where you can both view it and also secure a chance to own it. Tickets for the June drawing are only $5 (or 6 for $25), a donation to Carpinteria Beautiful. We hope you’ll stop in soon and take advantage of this truly beautiful opportunity. Carpinteria Beautiful extends our most sincere thanks to the Knotty Threads Quilting Friends, to Roxanne Barbieri who donated the fabrics and to the talented Ranell Hansen who stitched it all together. We can’t wait to see who wins it!
