County warns of potential health risks at beaches
Santa Barbara County Environmental Health Services Division reminds residents about potential health risks associated with storm water runoﬀ at countywide beaches following the rainstorm on Sunday and Monday of this week. Storm water is untreated rainwater that ﬂows through the drain system into creeks, the ocean and other waterways. Contact with storm water while swimming or surﬁng may increase the risk for certain types of illnesses such as rashes, fever, chills, ear infections, vomiting and diarrhea. To minimize potential health risks, the county recommends that people do not swim, play or surf in the ocean and creeks for at least three days following a rain event. Beachgoers should also avoid areas near the outfall from drainpipes and creeks that enter the ocean following a rain event as storm water runoﬀ may carry high levels of bacteria and pollutants. Sport harvesters should wait at least 10 days after a signiﬁcant rain to harvest shellﬁsh, county oﬃcials said. High bacterial levels, pesticide, herbicide and motor oil grease ﬂushed into the ocean with the storm runoﬀ may contaminate the shellﬁsh beds. When raw or undercooked contaminated shellﬁsh is eaten, serious illnesses such as gastroenteritis, septicemia, salmonellosis and hepatitis may result. Adequate cooking of shellﬁsh will destroy harmful bacteria but may not be eﬀective in killing viruses. In addition, cooking does not eliminate chemical and metal pollutants in the shellﬁsh.

The Newell yard is “Looking Good”
Carpinteria Beautiful awarded Van and Renée Newell of 1436 Carnation Place the “Looking Good” Award for the month of November. The Newells moved to Carpinteria from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Renée is a master gardener and former landscape designer. She took on the daunting challenge of creating an attractive garden in the tropical dry climate (zone 10) when most of her garden experience was with a moist climate (zones 6-8). Renée’s love of the famous
Butchart Gardens transferred to a love of Lotusland Gardens in Montecito, where she became a docent. Renée took her newfound love for Lotusland and applied it to a Carpinteria home that she and her husband rented 2.5 years ago. Renée said she loves to edit gardens, and as such, she designs and plants to connect the architectural and color elements of the home and garden. Her favorite front garden plant is the Leucadendron with its red tip foliage. The garden

As of Oct. 21, 70.4% of the county’s eligible population is fully vaccinated. The county saw 374 new cases of Covid-19 between Oct. 15 and Oct. 21.
County reports 16 cases of Covid-19 in ICU last week, three new Covid-19 deaths
Between the week of Oct. 15 and Oct. 21, Santa Barbara County reported 374 new cases, compared to 442 new Covid-19 cases from the prior week, coming to a total of 311 active cases, 43,617 total cases and 519 deaths. Three new deaths were reported during that same week, along with 16 total ICU hospitalizations. The majority of cases were seen between the 30-49 population, with 107 cases; following shortly behind were 99 cases in the 0-17 age group. Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded the booster dose allowances, the county reported in its weekly newsletter. The FDA now issued emergency use authorizations for booster shots for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccines; previously, only those who had received ﬁrst and second doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccines were eligible for a booster. The single-use booster dose of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine can be given at least six months after the second dose, and to those 65 years and older; those between the ages of 18 and 64 who are at high risk of severe Covid-19; and those 18 and 84 who have occupational exposures to the virus. The single booster for the J&J vaccine can be given at least two months after the original dose, to those 18 years and older. On Tuesday, an FDA panel endorsed the Pﬁzer vaccine for children between the ages of 5 and 11. The vaccine – which will be split in two shots – given to children in this age group is one-third of the dosage for people 12 and older. The FDA panel’s decision is only a recommendation; the FDA will later choose to ﬁnalize the decisions. If the FDA issues approval,
approximately 28 million children will be eligible for the vaccine. The county also released a Halloween Safety Checklist, with Dr. Henning Ansorg reminding families to stay safe from Covid-19 this Halloween. Ansorg said that families should attend events that are outside and have social distancing measures in place, and that people should keep safe distances from others while attending pumpkin patches or going apple picking. Ansorg also said to avoid “crowded, poorly ventilated spaces; protect those who are not eligible for vaccination, such as young children, by getting vaccinated; wear ﬁtting masks while indoors; and don’t attend a gathering if you are sick or having symptoms.” The county also reminds residents to get their ﬂu shots, which are available throughout the county. To learn where to get vaccinated for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/ vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, ﬁnd a site at publichealthsbc.org/testing. These sites are only oﬀering the PCR test.

Meet the city’s new engineering technician
The city of Carpinteria has a new engineering technician: Jason Dane. Before joining the city, Dane completed a Bachelor of Science in environmental studies from UC Santa Barbara and a Master of Science in environmental engineering from California State University Fullerton. For the last six years, Dane has worked in environmental consulting, primarily on environmental remediation and assessment projects. Dane is certified as an engineer in training and is working toward a professional engineering license in civil engineering. In the following Q&A, Dane talks about why he wanted to work in Carpinteria and more about his background and interests. What attracted you to a position as an engineering technician for the city of Carpinteria? Hopefully this doesn’t sound too cliché, but I wanted to find a role where I could apply my skills and talents to help people. I think a career with the city is a great way to do so in a very practical and concrete way. It’s also hard not to love the area.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role? I’m looking forward to getting to work with a great team and having the opportunity to serve the local community. Also, being down the street from Rincon is a decent perk. Tell us more about your background and interests. I was born and raised on the Island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Two thirds of the island I grew up on is set aside as part of Virgin Islands National Park, which definitely led to my love of the ocean and the outdoors. After graduating high school, I moved to Santa Barbara to attend UCSB. I moved to L.A and Orange counties for a few years after college to gain some work experience but moved back to Santa Barbara after meeting a girl. We’re getting married this March. Do you have a favorite spot in Carpinteria to grab lunch or a coffee? I love food and am a fan of Uncle Chen and Rudy’s.

Make your own choices, but don’t complain
I cringed when I saw those children, prodded by their parents, carrying political signs protesting California’s upcoming Covid-19 school vaccination mandate. The debates over whether Covid 19 is real, whether vaccines work and whether a national vaccination program is necessary to control the virus are over; so is the argument that the government, businesses or school districts do not have the right to require vaccinations to protect public health. They do. If you want to exercise your right not to get vaccinated or to use your children as props, that is your choice; but don’t complain when you can’t work, can’t send your child to school or can’t enjoy indoor public places with the rest of the civilized world. That is also your choice.

Don’t force people to get vaccinated
As of Monday, Oct. 18, 70.1% of the eligible population of Santa Barbara County is fully vaccinated, compared to 59.3% of the total county population. We were told for months that once 65% – 70% of our population was vaccinated we would have reached herd immunity. We ran out to get vaccinated to achieve that goal. What changed? Don’t tell me this is because of the new variants, because we were told that the vaccinations we received worked on all Covid-19 variants. Now, our government wants to increase vaccination numbers by threatening people’s livelihoods by instituting vaccine mandates. Remember when we called nurses, police and fire personnel heroes because they continued to work during the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic? Now we call them unemployed unless they are vaccinated. Go figure! I personally believe in getting vaccinated and have even gotten my booster shot. What I don’t believe in is government, at any level, forcing people to be vaccinated. Especially not at the threat of losing their jobs. Who are they putting at risk? In a
worst-case scenario, themselves. Quit moving the goal posts and acknowledge that the majority of our residents have been vaccinated. Give us credit for doing what you asked us to do. Fear tactics are running very thin, and the public is sick of being threatened at every turn. So, 70.1% of our eligible population and 59.3% of the total population has been vaccinated – plus many more got Covid and recovered. How many more must be vaccinated before we reach herd immunity?

Faith lost in Biden/Harris
I’ve tried to appreciate President Biden, but I now have genuine doubts about his mental capacity and his ability to lead our great country. He recently said he got to the Senate 180 years ago; he said he served 36 years as vice president; he confused Libya and Syria three times at the G-7 Summit; he can’t remember names; he needs cue cards during his rare speaking appearances; he is told who he can call on when he does appear; at times, he has difficulty putting two coherent statements together; he avoids talking about the totally-avoidable Afghanistan disaster he created and the people he left behind there; and he rarely speaks about the Mexican border crisis, another avoidable mess he created. What bothers me most is that Biden won’t go to the border to witness the suffering he and Vice President Harris created or offer support to our beleaguered border control personnel. Rather than praise and thank the border patrol, they immediately jumped at the opportunity to criticize them because of a photo of a horse-riding agent supposedly using a whip that was nothing more than a bridle rein to control his horse. This is America. We will adjust and recover. I genuinely hope someone can convince me that my feelings about Biden/Harris are wrong.

CITY BEAT City proposes limits to ADUs in beach neighborhood
Coastal View News • Tel: (805) 684-4428
BY EVELYN SPENCE
Following lengthy discussions at its Monday, Oct. 25 meeting, Carpinteria City Council directed staff to move forward with drafting a proposed accessory dwelling unit (ADU) and junior accessory dwelling unit (JADU) ordinance, choosing from a number of criteria for the ordinance presented by city staff. The difference between the two is that a junior accessory dwelling unit must be under 500 square feet, Rita Bright, principal planner, said during the meeting. Per the report, a JADU can be created within the walls of a “proposed or existing single-family residence” and are not allowed as accessory structures. ADUs are larger than JADUs, and are typically classified as either a state exempt ADU – an ADU that complies with a basic set of development standards – or a standard ADU, which falls under additional local purview. According to the report, state law requires that a studio or one-bedroom ADU “be no smaller” than 850 square feet, and that ADUs with more than one bedroom “be no smaller” than 1,000 square feet. State exempt ADUs, however, cannot be bigger than 800 square feet.
Thursday, October 28, 2021 7
The council ultimately opted for the preparation of a hybrid ADU and JADU program. The program excludes Zone 1, which stretches from the ocean side of Sandyland Road between Linden and Ash avenues, and requires on-site parking for ADUs located in Zone 2; it also allows for discretionary review regarding flooding. Zone 2 composes properties east of Holly Avenue and north of 3rd Street located in the beach neighborhood, excluding the northeast corner of the neighborhood. “Initially I liked option 1, but as we’re going forward, option 5 I believe will be the best move,” Councilmember Roy Lee said. “I want to emphasize that in the final draft it should benefit the homeowner. It should be a simple and painstakingly-free process to convert ADUs or JADUs (...) I don’t want to create any hardships for any other neighborhoods.” Steve Goggia, community development director, confirmed there are logistical concerns over a proposed ADU ordinance, stating that because Carpinteria is located in the coastal zone, there are issues in the state ADU ordinance that “can appear to be in conflict” with Carpinteria’s coastal policies. Due to these conflicts, the city staff and
Bluffs 1, part of Seal Watch area, sold
City Manager Dave Durflinger confirmed that the property hosting the Seal Watch volunteers and bench – Bluffs 1 – has a new owner, in response to a question prompted by Councilmember Gregg A. Carty about the sale rumors. Durflinger said there were some “outstanding code compliance issues” with the property, but that the new owner or owners have agreed to address those matters. Public commentator Robin Karlsson requested clarification about the sale of the property. Durflinger said the property has been owned privately for a number of years – even though people would walk through it – and clarified that the majority of the area where seal watch volunteers operate is actually owned by Chevron, which granted permission to seal watch volunteers to access the area. “Directly adjacent to (the Chevron property) is a portion of Bluffs 1 property that is owned privately,” Durflinger said, which has now been sold to a “development interest.”
Chevron submits decommission assessment
Last week, Chevron submitted its developmental application to the city to remove the Carpinteria Oil & Gas Plant, located right behind city hall, according to City Manager Dave Durflinger. “For the last year or more, they’ve been doing an assessment,” Durflinger said.
the Planning Commission recommended a few proposed amendments to the Carpinteria Municipal Code. Bright said that, consistent with state housing laws, ADUs and JADUs would be allowed where “residential-use is currently allowed.” But a possible ADU and JADU ordinance is further complicated by the city’s sea rise vulnerability assessment, which found that 90% of the city’s vulnerable properties are residential and are located in the city’s beach neighborhood. “The addition of ADU-JADU residents in (the beach neighborhood and parts of the Concha Loma neighborhood) with existing high coastal access use, along with projected loss of beach access parking, including on-street public parking, may result in adverse effects upon coastal access,” the report reads. “We wanted to talk about it with you, the concept. Then we’ll refine (the ordinance) and submit it,” Bright said. “We’ve done a lot of review and re-writing and revision to try and craft the best objective development standards that we felt we could do to capture good design, but not
trigger or trip a consistency concern.” Councilmembers brought up concerns about ADUs in the beach neighborhood and the Concha Loma neighborhood, particularly how ADUs could add to parking problems in the area. Lee asked if, under the policy, “people could put an Airstream (trailer) in their backyard” and classify that as an ADU; Bright clarified there are different requirements for a mobile home versus an ADU or JADU. Councilmember Gregg Carty pointed out that it is difficult to afford to build an ADU, and that “the families and the folks that probably need this the most, I still have a feeling they’re going to have a hard time affording to do this.” He called the price of construction “through the roof.” “The folks who need this the most are still going to suffer,” Carty said. “I’m strongly in favor of making it straightforward.” City staff will now move forward with drafting a final ordinance. It will be brought back to the council at a future date.
Council approves letter objecting to Bailard Avenue property
At its Monday, Oct. 25 meeting, Carpinteria City Council approved the contents of a letter drafted by city staff that will be sent to the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Barbara Board of Commissioners, objecting to what is colloquially known as the Bailard Avenue housing project. The project features a proposed 173 units of family housing on the seven-acre property located at 1101 and 1103 Bailard Avenue. Because the property is located just outside city limits, the council does not have control over what is built on the property; the city signed an MOU earlier this year, in an attempt to have some control, but last month, city staff tabled all talks with the county housing authority on the project due to disagreements over city control and issues with the project. In the letter, the board “respectfully request(s) your Board of Commissioners act to abandon” the project. “The City has a strong history of supporting new and protecting existing
residential development that is affordable by design and/or includes units with affordability restrictions (...) However, after multiple meetings with Housing Authority staff and its private development partner where city concerns were shared, and despite good faith efforts by all involved, we have concluded that the city can no longer lend its support to exploring multi-family housing at the Bailard site based on the Project Concept,” the letter reads. The letter highlights the city’s main concerns about the project, noting density issues, issues with paving over agricultural lands, the urban and rural boundary and parking concerns. The letter points out that the development would require “municipal services” from the city, such as roads, even though it would be outside of city limits. Several public commenters spoke in support of the city’s decision to send the letter.
City looks to living shoreline to protect residents from sea level rise BY EVELYN SPENCE Last week, the city held its fourth public workshop for the dune and shoreline management plan, allowing the community’s feedback for a project that aims to mitigate sea level rise in Carpinteria. The goal of the dune and shoreline management project is to identify possible long-term funding sources for maintenance of a living shoreline. Living shorelines create a stabile coastline composed of natural materials, such as sand, rocks or plants. Through the workshops, city officials said they’re trying to provide resources and make residents aware of the impacts of sea level rise as well as implementing the dune and shoreline management project. The current plan will tackle the next 25 to 50 years of coastline management, Erin Maker, Carpinteria environmental coordinator, said. The project is split into
Plan to be finalized in February 2022
four areas: from the inlet to Ash Avenue, from Ash Avenue to Linden Avenue, from Linden Avenue to Carpinteria Creek, and from Carpinteria Creek to the tarpits. Maker said the team – composed of coastal engineer Chris Webb, dune designer/restoration ecologist Dave Hubbard, dune designer/restoration ecologist Matt James and deputy project manager Taylor Lane, along with Maker – is looking at a combination of strategies to incorporate into the design. This would include both hard structures and soft structures, such as beach nourishment, dune restoration, cobble and artificial reef, among others. Webb said the design would widen the beach by nourishing it, building and enhancing the dunes, looking at sediment sources, building a living shoreline and putting in a temporary pilot program groin – a structure that is perpendicular to the beach – near Linden Avenue. The
City environmental coordinator Erin Maker emphasized that the “unprotected, low-lying coastline” was the most vulnerable, which houses 41 affordable housing units and 213 campsites. model has been tested for several storm wave and water level situations. The team found that a single dune ridge of living shoreline with a wide beach is the best scenario offered for shoreline protection. “It still allowed water over it however, so it wasn’t completely without its shortcomings,” Webb said. Maker went over several key areas within Carpinteria that are vulnerable to sea level rise, including the downtown
commercial corridor, the beach neighborhood and shorefront properties, and infrastructure such as roads, parks and utility lines, including the Highway 101. But she emphasized that the “unprotected, low-lying coastline” was the most vulnerable, which houses 41 affordable housing units and 213 campsites.

Jim was born in Chicago, Illinois on April 19, 1925, to Hiram and Elsie (Deppmeier) White. His sister Jean was born in 1936. Jim was always busy and active, and loved spending time with his friends. Stories of his young days were so fun to listen to, such as the time his parents sent him to live with his Uncle Henry in a remote homestead in Montana for the summer. Keep in mind, Jim was a city boy. The first morning after he got there, his uncle served him up some pancakes with no syrup on them. Jim said he couldn’t eat them without syrup and promptly lost his breakfast to the dog. Being a quick study, he had plain pancakes each and every day after that! This story along with so many others, set the adventurous, resourceful and humor-filled tone of his life. Soon after high school, Jim was drafted into the Army Air Force, where he learned to be a pilot, flying B-17 and C-46 aircraft. He ferried army personnel cross country, and also did formation flying. He was honorably discharged on Sept. 27, 1945. After leaving the army, Jim moved from the Midwest to the sunny pacific coast, to attend UCLA. While at UCLA, he became a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity and received his Bachelor of Science degree on Sept. 9, 1950. Not long after graduation, Jim married Virginia (Ginny) Brailey. They had four children, Cathy, Lorie, Barbara and James (Jim). Together, they enjoyed great family times, eventually building a house in Montecito that they loved. Trips to Disneyland, San Diego Zoo and Lake Arrowhead, are filled with special memories. Years later, as life goes sometimes, Jim and Ginny went their separate ways. They both loved their children dearly, and set wonderful values, and ethics they can be proud of. For years, Jim worked as a stockbroker, investing in all kinds of opportunities himself – once a restaurant, once a silver mine, and once even an oil well. The oil well created one interesting day for the family, when a picnic lunch was packed to go look at the new investment. Picture a family sitting around a goofy grasshopper looking machine, methodically pumping up and down while they chewed on ham and cheese sandwiches.
He loved all this though. His nature always leant itself to the “possibilities” in life. That’s the takeaway. Jim became an avid golfer and tennis player. He played every single week until well into his 80s. Later, he added swimming laps (1/4 mile and not one lap more!) several times a week to keep his back strong. Many of the grandkids have hilarious stories to tell (and fond memories to keep) of the great golf games played with their grandad. When his eyesight started to go a bit, he was, of course, not deterred in continuing to play, but he would hit some of the longer shots, and then ask the kids, “where did it go?” He still probably beat the pants off all of them. Through an acquaintance, Jim was introduced to a lovely lady named Elaine Langhorne. She was a hard-working grade schoolteacher, and a mother of four children herself: James (Jim), Charles, Nancy and Edward. He was smitten with her great looks, love for entertaining and fabulous meals. Hesitant at first, she was swept off her feet by the sound of his signature voice, handsome features and zest for life. And so, they began a wonderful life together. Jim and Elaine were married on March 3, 1984, and spent 37 years together happily married. They loved to entertain and hosted many fantastic events. They grew pretty gardens and always had fresh tomatoes and green beans for tasty meals. They ate lots of healthy foods, but always made sure to enjoy a delicious desert – either one of Elaine’s goodies or Jim’s favorite Haagen Dazs ice cream. Jim learned to do woodworking after retirement and built some wonderful furniture and designed a custom sewing cabinet for Elaine, who was an amazing seamstress. Every year after they retired, Jim and Elaine picked a destination in the United States and drove to explore the area. They always came back with lots of fun stories. They went several times to Montana to see family. Once they went to the South, and once as far north as Alaska. Every year they would plan these trips to include a visit to Washington State to visit their daughter Barb and family. Jim was a wonderful man. He always wanted the best for everyone. His sense of humor was delightful, and his attitude about life infectious. In a letter he wrote, he said, “You always have to keep swinging and NEVER get discouraged because there is ALWAYS a good chance that some or all will come out ok.” Jim was pre-deceased by his father Hiram, mother Elsie, nephew Michael, and first wife Ginny. He is survived by his wife Elaine, sister Jean, daughter Cathy (Dave) Tajima, daughter Lorie White, daughter Barb (Tim) Purcell, and son Jim (Bonnie) White; along with Jim (Pam) Langhorne, Charles (Sophie) Langhorne, Nancy (Thomas) Hussey, and Edward (Monica) Langhorne. There are also oodles of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephews, nieces, cousins and dear friends that will miss his smiles and hugs. A family gathering will be held at a later date.

We are still in a pandemic BY WADE NOMURA MAYOR OF CARPINTERIA
As we continue to live our lives in the presence of Covid-19, many people seem to feel they have one foot in and one foot out of the pandemic. I talk to Carpinterians who begin by speaking about the pandemic in the past tense, then switch to the present tense, or vice versa. If you’re feeling this uncertainty, you are not alone. The vaccine has provided most of us with a layer of protection from the disease, and we reinforce that by following public health guidance, such as wearing a mask indoors. This allows quite a few of us to lead lives that closely resemble pre-pandemic lives – but with a mask on indoors. One of the consequences of emerging from the all-consuming stages of the pandemic is becoming less tuned-in to Covid-19 news. When something seems less urgent, we tend to turn our focus elsewhere. Let’s take a minute to see where we’re at today. In Santa Barbara County, the new case rate continues to decline. The rate was 8.2 per 100,000 as of Oct. 14, which is nearly half the 13.9 per 100,000 reported for the week prior. When we refine our focus area to Carpinteria, Summerland and Montecito, we find an even lower rate of infection, with 5.3 new cases per 100,000. It will be nice to once again not need to wear masks indoors, but we must reach and maintain a rate of 6 cases per 100,000 for two weeks for the mandate to be lifted. We are almost there. Meanwhile, 70.1% of eligible individuals are fully vaccinated in our county, and 76% of eligible Carpinterians have received their full vaccination. The vaccine is expected to receive approval for children ages 5 to 11 on Nov. 1. If you have kids, please look for opportunities to vaccinate them in early November. The city of Carpinteria will provide information about vaccine availability through social media – Facebook, Instagram and Nextdoor – as well as through our blog
The vaccine has provided most of us with a layer of protection from the disease, and we reinforce that by following public health guidance, such as wearing a mask indoors. on the city’s website and e-newsletter. Our recent decline in Covid-19 cases is great news, and I’m particularly enthused by the projections for what’s to come. For the next few weeks, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) projects a gradual decline in Covid-19 deaths in California and a steeper decline for the entire U.S. Longer-term projections also give me a lot of hope. The Covid-19 Scenario Modeling Hub analyzes a series of scenarios designed in consultation with academic modeling teams and government agencies. The most likely scenario includes approval of vaccines for children and no emergence of a new highly transmissible variant. In this scenario, the new cases nationwide per day is expected to drop to 9,000 by March. To put that in perspective, the current U.S. daily case rate is 122,000. This pandemic has been terribly stubborn, but there is good reason to be optimistic now. That doesn’t mean letting down our guard and relaxing our diligence. It means staying the course until our science-led leaders and health experts tell us that the Covid-19 pandemic really is history.
SEA LEVEL RISING: Continued from page 7
“Linden Avenue is one of the primary routes to the coast from the beach neighborhood. So that’s really important for evacuation purposes. We don’t have any other routes that are accessible from the downtown neighborhood to the beach neighborhood in Carpinteria without walking,” she said. By 2100, the “reasonable worst case” for sea level rise within the city is five feet, according to Maker. “It can have some pretty significant impacts on property, including our transportation corridor (...) our coastal access,” Maker said during the meeting. Maker said that currently, the beach remains unprotected for the majority of the year, and that the beach is narrowing due to natural sediment flow blockage and recent sediment disposal activities. Current shoreline protections that exist include a rock revetment upcoast on county property and vegetated dunes on state parks property, as well as the city’s winter berm program. Maker provided attendees with a 1929 aerial photo of Carpinteria, showing wide, sandy beaches compared to the narrower ones currently in place. “What we’re trying to do with this project is mimic historic conditions,” Maker said. Maker said the team is planning on finishing the design in February 2022. Public attendees questioned administrative costs related to the plan and its funding. Maker said the team does not currently have estimated costs for the plan, which she said will be addressed in the future. Greg and Margaret Connors asked about the logistics of the groin on the beach. Greg said he grew up on Redondo Beach and said it was “ruined by groins.” Maker said the team wants to minimize any impact to the surrounding area and are taking that into account. In response to a question from Andrea Adams-Morden about maintenance of the beach, Webb said the idea is to minimize any maintenance that would need to be done. “The dunes are able to sustain themselves over a long period of time. We’d rather not have to go in and do a lot of maintenance, and have the dunes just enlarge, increase, rise, change and shape in form,” Webb said.

Museum seeks help understanding mystery quilt
Carpinteria’s local historical museum is often the recipient of interesting, usually old, and sometimes bizarre objects that folks wish to find a new home for or simply cannot bear to throw in the trash. Often of local interest or historical importance, the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History works to decide what to keep and record for posterity, what to sell to generate funds to operate the museum, and what should be thrown away. It is not always an easy decision, David Griggs, the museum director, said. “Many objects may have intrinsic monetary value, but without a recorded history of its ownership and use – where and when and how – the object has little historical value,” Griggs said. “That is why the museum is reaching out to the community for some help.” At present, Mary Foley and Sandy Crowe of the museum’s Accessions Committee are trying to determine the origin and history of a quilted patchwork red, white and blue wall hanging that was dropped off at the museum without any explanation. Griggs suggested it might be a bicentennial history class project made by local school students in 1976, as many of the 5-inch-blocks depict events of early American history. Each patch has initials or a name, such as Damon, Dan or Harmon, in the corner, which Griggs said was most likely the name of the person who created the square. Readers who recognize the wall hanging and can furnish the museum with any provenance or other background information should call David

Bee swarm safely removed from resident’s tree
A basketball-sized swarm of bees appeared in Carpinteria resident Rebecca Stebbins’ backyard recently. The bees took to a magnolia tree, where Stebbins initially mistook the swarm as a strange growth. Stebbins reached out to the Beekeepers Guild of Santa Barbara who sent volunteer Sue Riparetti to the Foothill Road property to safely remove the bees (for free). Stebbins said Riparetti braved rush hour traffic to come down to Carpinteria from San Marcos Pass to rescue the bees.
“Clearly passionate and fearless, she quickly donned protective clothing, brought out her swarm box, and proceeded to gently pull the bees off of the tree limb and into the box,” Stebbins said. When the queen bee was safely nestled in the box, Stebbins said it took Riparetti another hour to coax all the other bees into the box so that they could be safely transported to a new hive. To learn more about the Beekeepers Guild, visit beeguildsb.org.

Pacific Health Foods unveils produce-happy remodel CVN
TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P You probably walked around Pacific Health Foods with your mouth half-open – like I did – the first time you saw the shop’s new renovations. “We have added 20 feet of open produce cases to allow for more produce to be brought in from local organic farmers, as well as adding customer favorites,” owner Nathan Noll said. “With the size of the shop, we knew we only had a few layout options to work with. We would either go with a smaller produce section or go big and cover up the windows. We decided to go big.” The shop’s renovations focused on expanding overall operations and offering Carpinterians a wider selection of items. Nathan and his wife, Whitney, are the brains and brawn of the shop, located at 944 Linden Ave. When the pair aren’t working, they’re raising two little ones, which means stocking plenty of offerings for kids is a priority at the store. “In the baby food section, we have partnered with Once Upon A Farm to make sure our customers have the freshest organic pre-made baby food on the market with the addition of a small fridge to showcase their line,” Noll said. The parents aren’t forgotten, of course, with the doubling of the organic beer and wine section. There is also a large section of organic food items made in-house, which expands on the current juice bar menu. Of course, a big change doesn’t come
With the shop’s new double cash wrap, customers can check out quicker. without hiccups, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. “We experienced months of ‘Covid delays’ during this 8-month long process,” Noll said. “Whether it was missing parts, delays at the border, or having to postpone time off for employees this was definitely a project that tested our patience.” But once the dust settled, the vision took off. “The biggest joys came after the cases were in and product was starting to fill the shelves,” Noll said. “Seeing the looks on our friends, family and local community members’ faces after months of anticipation quickly erased all of the stress away.” Tri-County Produce in Santa Barbara has been a long-time inspiration to the Nolls, from its easy shopping experience to how they’ve supported local

farmers and vendors for decades. But it was Carpinteria’s local community that spurred the change, Noll said. “We spent time listening to customers and what they want to see more of at the shop,” Noll said, where it became clear that fresh produce, more grass-fed meats, a more extensive beer and wine selection and an expansion of the organic food menu are top priorities for Pacific Health customers. “Simply put, we’re ‘your local organic

market’ and will always strive to be.” The Nolls said their advice to other business owners embarking on a remodel is to always hire professionals you know and trust; mentally prepare to pay 20–30% over your budget; and have grace and patience for all involved.

Umbrellas come out around town PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON
On Monday, Santa Barbara County was hit with a fresh October storm, giving the area a refreshing bout of rain. Carpinterians young and old drew umbrellas up as puddles began to form in the streets, peering out at the wet world. Concerned about debris flows or flash flooding, the county issued a “shelter in place” order for those living in the Alisal Fire burn area, between 6 a.m. and noon on Monday. The fire remains at 97% containment as of Monday, hitting 16,970 acres. Over 260 personnel remain working on the fire.

Library announces 10 finalists in library card contest
The Carpinteria Library chose 10 finalists in its new library card contest competition, which offered Carpinteria children the chance to offer fun designs for the library’s new cards. The 10 cards, each of which was designed by a student between sixth and 12th grade, feature a wide variety of colors and designs; some artists opted for a colorful spread of flowers, while others incorporated butterflies and campfire tents into their pictures. Now, the library invites Carpinterians to vote on their choice for the new card. The designs are available to view at the arts center; to vote, residents can either fill out a ballot available inside the gallery or use a cell phone to vote via QR code. Limited to one vote per person. The deadline to vote is Nov. 1. The new cards will be available beginning July 2022, when the city transitions its library services away from the county.
Arts Center hires new administrative specialist
Longtime volunteer Connie Geston is the Carpinteria Arts Center’s new administrative specialist, the center announced on Tuesday. Geston has a background working with nonprofits to raise money for performing arts and has previously served on committees at the Alcazar Theatre. She also served as the volunteer coordinator for the California Avocado Festival. “We are excited to welcome Connie Geston to our Carpinteria Arts Center team. Many of you may already know Connie because she has been one of our star volunteers over the past two and half years! Connie has volunteered countless hours as a gallery host, served on our exhibition team, helped lead many of our events, and was instrumental in producing our summer arts camp last summer,” the center said in a release. In her new role, she will manage the gallery, programs, volunteers and other center business, the center said.
Anne Fraser is a featured artist in “Small Town Big Art.”

Mermaids exhibit and event announced at Maritime Museum
In conjunction with the opening of its upcoming exhibit, “Mermaids: Visualizing the Myths & Legends – Photography by Ralph A. Clevenger & Friends,” the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is presenting a unique mermaid sighting event. On Saturday, Nov. 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., the public is invited to meet mermaids in the Harbor (sightings from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m.), have their pictures taken with mermaids and view the new exhibit. To purchase tickets and schedule a mermaid photo appointment, visit sbmm.org.
In the Arts Center weekly newsletter, volunteer Anne Fraser was featured, offering up her artistic skills while working. As host volunteers, staff are invited to bring art to work on in the gallery, giving visitors an up-close-and-personal look at art in progress. Fraser is also one of the featured artists in “Small Town Big Art,” which features 100 Carpinteria artists and was released for pre-orders last month. One of Fraser’s pieces is a watercolor featuring the mother tree of Santa Barbara – a Moreton Bay Fig Tree that the center called “reminiscent of elephant trucks.” “To see it is to want to sit in its warm embrace and paint, share its power from its small, almost forgotten plot by the train station. Still the Mother Tree survives, endures, flourishes and nourishes,” the description reads. The center is looking for additional volunteers to help throughout fall.

After completing demolition of Summerland Elementary School last week, all that remained standing was the flagpole.
Summerland Elementary School demolition begins
Earlier this month, construction crews began demolishing the Summerland School, with the demolition nearing completion at the end of last week – leaving only the flagpole standing. The district held a ceremonial groundbreaking in late September, inviting community members, contractors and school board members to celebrate the
soon-to-be-built school. Summerland students have been relocated to the old Main School campus for the duration of the 2021-2022 school year, while the new campus is built. Peter Bie, who took photos of the construction, noted that it “only took five days to bring it all down and dig the huge pit toward the lower part of the property.”

Public Notices NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE TS No. CA-21-891920-SH Order No.: 210320667-CA-VOI YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED 3/19/2007. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank speciﬁed in Section 5102 to the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state, will be held by duly appointed trustee. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. BENEFICIARY MAY ELECT TO BID LESS THAN THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE. Trustor(s): ADELA RODRIGUEZ, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN Recorded: 3/27/2007 as Instrument No. 2007-0022023 of Ofﬁcial Records in the ofﬁce of the Recorder of SANTA BARBARA County, California; Date of Sale: 11/10/2021 at 1:00PM Place of Sale: At the main entrance to the County Courthouse, located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $558,363.13 The purported property address is: 1341 JUNE ST, CARPINTERIA, CA 93013-1727 Assessor’s Parcel No.: 003-552-034 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s ofﬁce or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneﬁciary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this internet website http://www.qualityloan.com, using the ﬁle number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-21-891920-SH. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reﬂected in the telephone information or on the internet website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase.

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM The nest was soft and silky smooth, tightly woven in island hazardia, endemic flora found on Santa Cruz Island. It had taken me weeks to locate their nest, but in the end, what it took to locate it was the dad attempting to add to the nest with a long string with a stick tied to it. I quickly yanked my camera out of my camera pack and fired off a few frames where the Northern Channel Islands Loggerhead Shrike perched on the old corral fence. One of the rarest birds found at the Channel Islands National Park, the shrike appeared awkward toting the dangling string as it flew toward its nest site in Scorpion Canyon on the southeast fringe of Santa Cruz Island. I tracked the shrike through the viewfinder on my camera with the string still in tow. The shrike then flew into a young island oak tree, where the string became entangled, and the shrike became befuddled by the confusion. It quickly shifted gears, hopping from limb to limb, where it became enthralled with some half-eaten prey. As I held down the shutter on my camera, I first thought it was a large insect, which shrikes are known to take. However, I’ve always been interested in how shrikes impale their prey on whatever is available – sticks, a rusty nail, barbed wire, etc. I had never seen this behavior before, until that moment, but I knew they do this with mice, insects, and lizards. Armed with a hooked beak much like a raptor, they are efficient hunters when it comes to pint-sized prey. Actually, I didn’t realize I was looking at impalement until I edited my images on my computer. The lower half of a sideblotched lizard was all that remained. The shrike was animated with the lower half, removing it from its stick and thrashing it through the leaves. Eventually though, the shrike impaled it again and began to feed mightily. The next day I returned where the string remained entangled in the smallish island oak. The string wasn’t going anywhere and was seemingly long since forgotten. The loggerhead had other

The first nest was down by the water in a large lemonade berry at the mouth of Scorpion Canyon. It was easy watching the male flying to and from the nest, lots of food in its beak to feed its mate. Then, one day, there was no commotion at all. Something was up. Suddenly, there was no more back and forth by the male and all was quiet in the lemonade berry. It could’ve been ravens or the endemic island scrub jay, both are known to raid nests. For the Northern Channel Islands Loggerhead Shrike, each nest is precious. The last survey by the Channel Islands National Park of shrike numbers on Santa Cruz Island was back in 2012. Back then the population was roughly 43 shrikes. On neighboring Santa Rosa Island, shrike numbers are solid because there are no island scrub jays on that island. Shrike numbers on Santa Rosa hover at around 240 on the windswept islet. Fortunately, this pair persisted. They moved further up the canyon where we keep our kayak gear. This is where I could keep tabs on the male’s coming and goings. Mostly I was going by its raspy calls, where I eventually followed those calls into a willow tree in the seasonal creek in Scorpion Canyon. The nest was nearly directly across from where the tangled string remained in the island oak. Halfway up the willow a fork in the tree was tangled in island morning glory concealing it from predators. The nest held four tiny eggs sitting inside a soft bed of island hazardia. It would be another month until the chicks hatched,

In the meantime, the male continued bringing food to the nest to keep the female happy while she incubated her clutch. Six weeks later I checked the nest again, but only two of the eggs had hatched. The chicks were pink and healthy. Another month and they were out of the nest and living up to their Loggerhead name. The fledglings, still adorned in their downy feathers, possessed oversized heads that they still needed to grow into. Clinging to the comfort of their parents, mom and dad brought them endless insects as the young shrikes begged to no end for more food. Due to that constant begging, it was easy to locate them in the canyon, their territory from the old corral down through the floodplain to the water’s
edge at Scorpion Anchorage. It has been four months since the chicks fledged. They’ve moved on to seek out their own territories. I see one of them on my early morning trail runs on the first marine terrace overlooking Scorpion Anchorage. There’s more shrike activity further back in the canyon tucked away in the coyote bush, but as long as I continue to hear their raspy calls, I know the shrikes will continue to add to the web of life on the island biome.

Carpinteria boys water polo thrashes opponents for three wins BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING
The Warriors have dominated all season in the pool, and as the end of the water polo season approaches, Carpinteria High School’s boys team is securing its position at the top heading into the CIF playoffs. Carpinteria won three more games this week, including a double-header with back-to-back shutout wins against Hueneme. The unusual double-header was scheduled to make up a game that was postponed two weeks ago due to a shortage of referees. Hueneme came to town and the Warriors came out on fire, scoring a season high 28 goals while staying perfect on defense for the day and allowing zero goals. In the second game it was more of the same, with Carpinteria holding on to a 18-0. Before the double-header, the Warriors’ season high was 17 goals, which they reached three times this year. This also marks the third and fourth shutout games of the season for the Warriors. With the two wins, Carpinteria secured the Citrus Coast League title and a #1 ranking in the CIF Division 5 polls. One day later, the Warriors traveled to Lompoc to take on Cabrillo, and once again played staunch defense, containing the Conquistadores on the way to a 13-6 victory. The Warriors relied on their defense,
coach Jon Otsuki said, which was “impenetrable” throughout the game. Carpinteria snagged 13 steals and forced numerous turnovers on the day, Otsuki said, and goalie Jacob Taff blocked 10 shots in the win. Sophomore standout Asher Smith was aggressive on both offense and defense, scoring six goals and grabbing three steals against Cabrillo. Senior team captain Mateo Handall chipped in two goals, two steals and a field block of his own. Four more Warriors scored in the game: Justin Main got two in the back of the net, while Reyn Clayton, Zach Isaac and Gavin Lohuis each scored one. Carpinteria has locked in on defense all year, holding opponents to 10 goals or fewer in 19 games this season. The team has forced turnovers, applying pressure in the pool since the start of the season, and Taff has been a brick wall in front of the net. The Warriors move to 19-4 overall, and an undefeated 4-0 in league play, with just one game left before the CIF playoffs. On Thursday, Carpinteria will host Santa Barbara for their final game of the regular season, which will be “Senior Day” for the nine seniors on the team. The seniors will be recognized before the start of the game.

out to a strong start of league play. “We will have to put these last two matches behind us and quickly too,” Bryant said. “A great learning experience but at a very costly time as it cost us the league championship.” Carpinteria will host the Citrus Coast League Finals this week to close off the season. Bryant said the team’s six seniors – Valerie Ojeda, Abbie Delwiche, Cassandra Maya Prado, Nansy Velasquez, Stephanie Gonzalez and especially captain Natalia Perez – were vital to this year’s success and will be greatly missed. “Natalia has been absolutely amazing and has been an incredible leader these past two seasons.” Carpinteria finishes the regular season at 12-6 overall and 8-2 in the Citrus Coast League.
Warriors’ woes continue against Hueneme
Carpinteria’s football team struggled to put points on the board, and was shutout for the seventh time this season against Citrus Coast League leader Hueneme, who stayed undefeated in league play with the 48-0 victory. The Vikings are now 7-2 overall, and 3-0 in league, and will now prepare for a strong Nordhoff squad. Carpinteria is now 0-9 for the season, and will take to the road for their final game of the year against Santa Paula on Friday, Oct. 29. Santa Paula is 3-6 overall, and was just beat by Fillmore, 57-7. Both teams are 0-3 in Citrus Coast League play.

Warriors girls volleyball suffers tough firstround loss in CIF
Carpinteria girls volleyball hosted a first round playoff game at their home gym against Santa Clara, but after a competitive five-set contest, it was the visiting Saints who would advance to the second round – closing the doors on a strong season for the Warriors. Coach Bret Shellabarger helped lead the team to a 6-4 league record, and seniors Alex Zapata and Marlene Sanchez contributed to much of the Warriors’ success in league play. Carpinteria started out strong, winning the first set, 25-21, but Santa Clara fired back with back-to-back wins in the second (17-25) and third (20-25) set. Carpinteria was able to break even with a fourth set victory, 25-21. In the tie-breaking fifth set, the Warriors fought hard but ultimately fell, 11-15, marking the end to the long season. Warrior outside hitter Ainsley Andersen, who will be returning as a senior next year, finished the night with 12 kills, four aces and 19 digs. Sanchez served up four aces and 19 digs in what turned out to be her final game on the court for Carpinteria. “It was an honor to host the first round of CIF playoffs in their home gym,” Shellabarger said. “That’s a wrap for the 2021 girls volleyball season.”

Carpinteria cross country competes in Mt. SAC Invitational
Members of Carpinteria’s cross country team traveled to the hot, dry weather of Walnut, California, to compete in the 73rd Mt. San Antonio College Cross Country Invitational. Athletic Director Pat Cooney said that the event is one of the longest running cross country meets in California. “The Mt. SAC Invitational has become a right of passage for more than a hundred thousand over its 73-year history, as its grueling, hot, and hilly three-mile course leaves runners exhausted and thirsty,” Cooney said. The top finisher for the girls team was Kate Cooney, who earned 40th with a time of 22:04. Belen Herrera and Jocelyn Pena finished with times of 25:49 and 26:02. For the boys, Eduardo Vences finished 60th with a time of 18:43, while Chris Ceja and Alejandro Marin finished with times of 22:18 and 23:20. The team’s next meet will be the Santa Barbara County Championships at River Park in Lompoc.

Carpinteria girls tennis drops to league rival Nordhoff
The Warriors’ girls tennis team has played well in Citrus Coast League contests this season, but in the final matchup against Nordhoff for the top spot in the league, Carpinteria fell by a slim margin and slipped to second place. The competition was so evenly matched that after 18 sets the teams were locked 9-9, and the match was decided by games won (66-65). “That was very tough to take,” coach Charles Bryant said. Even tougher, Bryant said, was the injury of one of the team’s senior doubles players, Cassandra Maya Prado, who went down early in the second round. The injury forced the Warriors to retire the match 1-6, which ended up as the team’s only doubles loss of the day. “We really seemed to struggle in singles. We did not show patience and poise in too many points,” Bryant said. The Warriors were able to pick it up in the third round, but the large margins proved to be a factor in the loss. Zahra Porinsh was the only set winner on the day and kept the team in the match through to the last round. It was the Warrior’s second loss in a row after jumping
After a magical start to the season with six wins in a row, the Cate Rams dropped a heartbreaking 44-40 loss to rival Thacher in Ojai. “The game came down to the last two minutes,” coach Ben Soto said. After going into halftime trailing by four, the Rams came back and built a 10-point lead with 2:30 to play. “We showed a lot of heart,” Soto said. “Unfortunately, we just made too many mistakes down the stretch. We will grow from this game and look to end the regular season strong next week.” Cate’s senior quarterback Will Bouma had another strong performance throwing to receivers Matty Holmes and Ethan Ligon. Linebacker Kristian Scurtis made some hard tackles, Soto said, against a very physical Thacher team. The Rams are now 6-1, and will close out the regular season on Saturday, October 30 against Malibu. The home game will start at 2 p.m. at Cate.

Remembering our loved ones
COFFEE, CAREER AND KIDDOS T E R E S A A LVA R E Z Earlier this year, my husband’s paternal grandmother passed away. She was the matriarch of the family and like a grandma to me too. She is also the first person that has passed away that was close to my son. How do you even start explaining death and the grieving process to a three-year-old? Here’s how I did it – which by no means is the only way, and of course, you can decide what’s best for your family, but I thought I’d share our experience. Years ago, we started watching the movie “Coco” on repeat. It was my son’s favorite movie. “Coco” is a Pixar movie about a boy who travels to the land of the dead on Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) and reunites with his ancestors. Every year, we build an ofrenda (an offering) for our loved ones who have passed away, just like they do in the movie. We started talking about death and loss, the
grief that came with that, and all the beautiful memories. When Little Grandma, a name we lovingly called her, passed away, with tears in my eyes and a knot in my throat, I let my son know that Little Grandma had died. I let him know that she was sick and that we would no longer see her. I allowed him to ask questions and talked about it with him whenever he wanted to bring it up. When I cried, he would ask if I was sad, and I would say yes, and I would share that it was because I missed Little Grandma. I didn’t shy away from my emotions because I want my kids to know that it’s okay to express how you’re feeling. I want them to know they can cry and be sad and sit with those feelings. I told him to remember the movie “Coco” and how we get a special time to celebrate those that are no longer with us every year on Día de Muertos. Now that he’s a little older, I’m looking forward to celebrating the upcoming Día de Muertos to show him how we remember our loved ones. For those of you who may not be familiar with Day of the Dead, it’s a vibrant and emotional celebration on Nov. 1. In Mexico, the cemeteries are filled with people visiting their loved ones. They leave favorite foods, drinks and items on their loved ones’ graves. At home, we create ofrendas (offerings) where we put pictures of our loved ones, marigold flowers, candles and their favorite items. We have already started putting to-

The celebration will be held on Oct. 31 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and there will be Mariachi dancers and activities for kids. Join us if you can! We miss Little Grandma every day, but she lives in our hearts through the stories we tell and pictures we have of her. Death is a part of life, and just like with many other conversations, it’s great to provide the space to talk about it.
