Protect affordable housing

Kudos to Leslie Westbrook for her excellent article in last week’s CVN concerning the sale of Sandpiper Mobile Home Park to a company known as Pacific Current Partners “Sandpiper Mobile Home Village land ownership changes hands in $20 million sale”). As Westbrook reported, PCP-Sandpiper LP is one of several limited liability names used by this manufactured housing investor group to buy up mobile home parks as a speculative investment. PCP along with their management company, Star Management, have a worrisome reputation for making cash cows out of mobile-home parks. Although we have some protection by our Rent Stabilization Ordinance to defend us from exorbitant rent increases, the bad news is that their sole purpose is to make the park purchase very profitable. PCP along with hired-gun attorney Robert Coldren have a history of successfully attacking rent control in parks of other cities. Fortunately, along with the RSO, we have a very strong relationship with the city and City Council. We also have assistance from Golden State Manufactured-Home Owners League SMOL —a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the rights of mobile home parks. Although it would be very difficult to change the character of the park, I am uncertain about future rent increases. PCP attorney Robert Coldren has written a playbook on “Positioning Your Mobile/RV Park for the Future.” His playbook outlines how to maximize profits and your investment. Star Management President is Michael Cirillo with over 30 years’ experience in the manufacturing housing industry. These are the people we are most concerned about because of their vast legal experience in manufactured housing. We have yet to meet these people and they have not informed us of their plans, but we are certain that they are now devising ways to increase their investment and maximize profits at the expense of our communities’ affordable housing.

Communism and socialism, not the same

Bruce Friesen’s letter “Democracy vs. socialism,” CVN, Vol. 26, No. 17) indicating that democrats are attempting to overthrow our government through “socialistic actions” which he claims lead to communism is troubling for so many reasons. I understand that facts, science, education and truth are not likely to sway Trump supporters, but I am compelled to point out the facts, nonetheless. Communism is both a political and economic system while socialist countries tend to be democratic. The author seems to use Marxist theory to express the belief that socialism leads to communism, for which there are no examples. But he ignores another tenet of Marxist philoso-

“Although we have some protection by our Rent Stabilization Ordinance to defend us from exorbitant rent increases, the bad news is that their sole purpose is to make the park p r hase ery profita e. ––Bob Franco phy that states that communism can only come about via revolution. Both of these models use the idea that the government provides for each person. This is based not only on their needs but on what they can contribute back to society. Communists believe that the state or the government should control and own all aspects of economic production. They also think that the state should provide every citizen with their basic needs. Socialism is a bit more exible. Socialists believe that all citizens should share in economic resources and who can have what is decided by a democratically elected government. This means that unlike communism, socialists do believe in private property. All industry and production are communally owned and managed by an elected government. There are only five countries in the world that claim to be communist: China, Vietnam, North Korea, Laos and Cuba. Two of those clearly had revolutions, as have Russia and France. France is clearly not communist or even socialist. Many European countries have elements of socialism, as does the United States. Social Security, Medicare, police and fire departments are just a handful of examples that we enjoy in our country. Do a little research and the difference become obvious.

Covid protections for landlords needed

AB 15—a statewide moratorium on rental evictions—finally got some publicity in the Jan. 14 issue of the Santa Barbara News-Press. Yay! Certainly, the situation for some workers, such as restaurant employees, hasn’t improved at all since last March. They certainly need some additional help besides unemployment. But wait! The problem with AB 15 is that it is totally one-sided and unrealistic. It isn’t fair or e uitable. The state should be offering help to the tenants directly. Why isn’t the state providing the rents? Helping tenants should not be put totally on the backs of landlords. That is crazy and so short-sighted. It’s so crazy, it’s to the point of dumb. Landlords have bills too. They have to pay mortgages,

homeowner’s association dues, electric, water, etc. What can a landlord do with no income for six months? And now another year? Landlords don’t get unemployment or business assistance. The whole thought process is so short-sighted. Not only will we have lots of evictions at the end of this, but we will also have lots of foreclosures. The courts are already overwhelmed and pitting two groups of citizens against each other is not right. The article also says the tenants must sign under penalty of perjury. I know from personal experience, that’s an empty threat. No one is checking anything. The tenant just lies. There is nothing a landlord can do. I will never own a rental in California again. I predict in five years, there will be almost no rentals available. The Covid-19 law is just one of the new changes this year against landlords. Soon, the super-rich or corporations will just buy up everything either as second homes or just turn them over for a profit. We mom-and-pop landlords will be gone.

What binds us together?

What makes our constitution unique in all the world? The founders of the United States embraced a previously unheard-of political philosophy which held that people are “...endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights.” This was the statement of a guiding principle for our nation, and, as such, had to be translated into a concrete charter. The Constitution of the United States of America is that charter. It is the ideal for which we always strive. All other forms of government, past and present, relied on a state, committee, king or elite ruling class as the grantor of human rights. America’s founders, however, believed that a government made up of imperfect people should possess limited powers and through our constitution, they wished to limit the powers of government. Have you read the constitution? It’s only 4,543 words. Don’t let anyone tell you what it says, read it yourself. Then ask why. Why did they think this was so important that they wrote it down, signed it and pledged their lives and their fortunes? Why did they write down that people were “endowed by their Creator” What does that mean? Why did they separate powers into three e ual branches xecutive, Legislative, Judicial)? Why did they choose the electoral college over straight popular vote? Why after the entire constitution was written and finished, did they go back and add the “Bill of Rights ” Why were they willing to risk everything, give everything for the ideas and ideals that are written down in this very small unassuming document? Why did they write, “all men are created e ual” as a guiding principle? Why was this ideal so important that we actually fought a Civil War, and 620,000 lives were lost to make this ideal a reality? Read it. Then we can have a lively discussion.

Marion Garcia 6/24/1921 – 12/29/2020

Marion L. Garcia passed peacefully on Dec. 29, 2020 at her home in Carson City, Nevada, at the age of 99. Born to Steven H. and Sadie Romero, Marion was a native of Carpinteria and the eldest of two siblings.

Thomas Johnson 1/22/1944 – 11/30/2020

Thomas M. Johnson, a longtime resident of Santa Barbara County, peacefully passed away on Nov. 30, 2020, at the age of 76. Tom was born on Jan. 22, 1944, in South Pittsburg, Tennessee to Clay and Leatha Johnson. He was raised in Rome, Georgia along with his 12 brothers and sisters. At the age of 11, he and his family moved to Eagle Rock, California. He then moved to Santa Barbara in 1961. As a young man, Tom, affectionately known as “Tommy” by many, began working as a mechanic while pursuing his passion for drag racing. In 1963, he moved to Las Vegas where he lived briefly before relocating to Lancaster, California. He returned to Santa Barbara in 1968 and worked for Butts Buick and Goodyear Tire before he opened Tom’s Tire Service, his first of three tire stores throughout Santa Barbara County. He was a member of the Chevrollers Car Club of Santa Barbara. After many years in the tire business, he found himself tending the land he leased out to a local ower grower in Carpinteria, where he lived. Soon he became more involved in farming the owers than he was with his tire stores, so one-by-one he began selling them off and as he did, he increased the acreage and his knowledge and became a fulltime ower grower and owner of Wel Bran Flowers. He remained passionate about cars and racing, and to add to his list of

Marion married Arthur R. Garcia in June of 1946 and moved to North Hollywood, California. When Art retired in 1979, they returned to Carpinteria to be near Marion’s family, surrounded by the pleasures of small-community living. In their retirement years, she and Art traveled widely, pursuing the goal of visiting all 50 states in the U.S.A. Marion also enjoyed those years cooking, reading, gardening and spending time with family and friends. After 66 years of marriage, Art passed away in 2013. Marion continued living in Carpinteria until 2016, when she moved to Carson City, Nevada, to be closer to her daughter. Best-remembered as the “Sunshine Lady” of Sandpiper Mobile Village, Marion is survived by her daughter, Debra Maurer, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is now resting in the Carpinteria Cemetery alongside her beloved Art. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, no services will be scheduled.

growing hobbies and skills, he learned to ride horses and found enjoyment participating in the team penning event in the local Fiesta rodeo. In the late ’80s, Tom purchased property in the Santa Ynez Valley to further increase his ower growing operation and he eventually made the move to Buellton. During this time, he collected several classic cars, including a race car which led him to become personally active in racing again. In 2005, Tom retired as a ower grower, but he never stopped working. Tom was raised to work hard and be generous, so he was never without something to keep him busy. He dedicated much of his time to restoring classic cars for himself and others. He had a passion for youth auto shop and racing programs and would spend countless hours raising money for local high school programs. He could always be found at car shows with his award-winning red ‘57 Chevy omad selling ra e tickets to benefit those programs. He is survived by his devoted wife of 9 years Lynne Ward ohnson and their two children Parker Johnson and Miranda Johnson; his son Thomas Johnson Jr., his former wife Barbara Bruhn and their two daughters Lori Razo (Mark) and Tammie Johnson-Fulmer; and his grandchildren Brianna Johnson, Nicholas Razo, Mark Razo, Rebekah Razo, Daniel Fulmer and Kelsey Fulmer. Tom is also survived by two sisters, Peggy Saunders of California and Ann Gossett of Georgia, along with numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his grandson Joseph Thomas De Alba. Tom was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. You could call him for just about anything. He was truly a “Tom” of all trades and he was always willing to lend a hand or lend a tool. He loved spending time with his family and friends, and his smile and laughter will truly be missed by many. A memorial service to remember and honor Tom’s life will be planned at a later date.

Schools remain open for hybrid learning, teachers await vaccines BY EVELYN SPENCE California Governor Gavin Newsom aims to have all California elementary school students return to in-person learning by early spring using the “Safe Schools for All” plan, Carpinteria Superintendent Diana Rigby said. “The plan is based on eight principles: funding, safety and mitigation, testing, PPE, contact tracing, vaccinations, oversight and assistance, and transparency and accountability,” she said. Carpinteria’s elementary schools are currently open under the hybrid model, based on a waiver the district applied for. Newsom’s plan does not include middle schools and high schools. Additionally, Rigby said that educators have been classified under Phase 1B Tier One for vaccine distribution. Currently, the county remains at Phase 1A.

$1.3 million for Summerland School tennis courts

The Carpinteria nified School District board of trustees unanimously accepted a $1.3 million grant for the replacement of the Summerland Elementary School tennis courts at its Jan. 12 meeting. The grant comes from the Manitou Fund, a nonprofit corporation. Summerland resident Nora McNeely Hurley, whose family runs the Manitou Fund, said she is “delighted to be able to help” rebuild the courts. “This is such a fantastic project and I’m excited with you,” she said. “I think it’s going to be fantastic for the kids and the community. I just feel so great to be in a position to be able to help.” Rigby and the board praised McNeeley Hurley’s donation. Board member Jayme Bray said the Summerland Tennis Courts were the same ones her father used when he attended that school, and that she “can’t even display how much appreciation I have for this donation. Really, truly, I’m so grateful.” Rigby said the district originally didn’t have enough funds to redo the tennis courts during the rebuilding of the Summerland Elementary School. “We were so excited to be contacted with someone who is interested in joining us and the area of Summerland… (to) provide funds to redo the tennis courts, which will be a lifelong activity for both schoolchildren and the community,” Rigby said.

La Centra-Sumerlin Foundation donations

The district accepted a $10,000 donation from the La Centra-Sumerlin Foundation, to be used toward the district’s mental health wellness program for the 2020-2021 school year. The foundation also donated $40,000 for the CUSD elementary reading and writing program.

“Cameras have been located in areas that have experienced previous vandalism and damage as well as to give maximum viewing of long distances. The cameras are a hi h definition with infrared illumination built in for night vision.”

––Diana Rigby

“Because of the closing of schools and reopening of schools, the (teachers’) trainings have been postponed to this summer,” Rigby said. “Then in fall, throughout all of our elementary schools, all teachers will be trained in the Lucy Calkins writing project and will be implementing the units of study in writing from TK-5.” “It will be a consistent way (that) our teachers instruct writing, whether it be persuasive writing, narrative writing or expository writing. The students will have direct instruction in all those genres, so by the time they enter middle school, they should have some very specific writing tools at their disposal. We’re very excited about this.” Board member Andy Sheaffer praised La Centra-Sumerlin, adding that the foundation “has really been a huge support for Carpinteria and especially the children’s project for the last 10, 11 years.”

Security cameras at CMS and CHS

Security cameras have been installed at Carpinteria Middle and High schools, following incidents of graffiti and vandalism, according to Rigby. Rigby, who spoke at the board’s meeting on Jan. 12, said the system is “currently waiting for components to be installed that will link the systems from Bay Alarm to each site.” The cameras are projected to be operational this week, and it can hold video storage for up to 30 days or be transferred onto an external drive. “Cameras have been located in areas that have experienced previous vandalism and damage as well as to give maximum viewing of long distances. The cameras are all high definition with infrared illumination built in for night vision,” Rigby said.

All three suspects are being held on 1 million bail. “The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all community members who were keeping an eye out for these suspects. We would also like to highlight the sound judgment of the witness who stayed a safe distance away, immediately called 9-1-1, and provided helpful information for responding units,” stated Ra uel ick, public information officer for the Sheriff’s Office. “This case is a great example of teamwork with the media sharing important and timely information with the public and members of the community being alert and immediately reporting information to law enforcement—all of which enabled deputies to swiftly respond and take these suspects into custody safely.”

Two teenagers and their father got caught in a dangerous riptide off Carpinteria State Beach on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 17. Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District firefighters successfully rescued the family and brought them to shore uninjured. Just before 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 17, two teenagers swimming in the ocean drifted past the surf line in a strong rip current. From the beach, the boys’ father saw that they were in trouble and swam out to help, but instead he got caught in the riptide too and could not get back to shore. When CSFPD Battalion Chief Brian

Roberson received the call for a possible drowning, he led a team to the site that included two engines, each with rescue swimmers, and a water rescue vehicle with a rescue water craft in tow. “We arrived on scene and there were three people well beyond the surf line that had been caught in the rip current,” said Roberson. “They were waving for help. They couldn’t get back into shore. “ Firefighter Brian Lombardi paddled out to the victims on a paddle board and firefighter paramedic Dean Carey swam out with swim fins and a rescue buoy. Lombardi and Carey made contact with the three victims and also met a good Samaritan in the water—a surfer who had paddled over to help when he noticed the

family appeared to be drowning. “They were out there probably stuck for more than 10-15 minutes,” said Roberson. “The surfer helped secure them until our rescuers got to them. Between the surfer and our rescue firefighter and swimmer we got all three back to shore through the large surf.” After being rescued, the three individuals were evaluated by CSFPD paramedics. They were uninjured though extremely cold due to the low water temperature. The victims were visiting from out of town. The good Samaritan surfer was not identified. “It could have had a really bad outcome, so it was a great rescue. Although Carpinteria is known for the World’s

Safest Beach’ during periods of high surf the ocean can be very dangerous. Watch out for rip currents and always swim with a partner or buddy,” said Roberson.

Winter garden tending




ALENA STEEN Winter is my favorite time to garden in our mild coastal climate. Cooler temperatures and the slower pace of plant growth allow you to focus your energies on the long-term life of your garden: soil health, perennial plantings such as trees and shrubs and water conservation measures. Our unusually dry and warm winter highlights the uncharted territory of global climate change. Growing some of your own food or owers while building healthy, biodiverse habitat for the many living organisms that surround us, from beneficial microbes to urban coyotes, is a deeply meaningful way to participate in creating a more hopeful, resilient climate future. Winter tasks at the Carpinteria Garden Park, as well as in my home vegetable garden and commercial cut ower field, include adding layers of compost and mulch to garden soil, cover-cropping, improving soil’s water retention and pruning and transplanting perennial plants. Growing soil health is your most important job as a gardener or farmer. I encourage you to shift your perspective towards feeding soil biology instead of individual plants. Healthy, living soil teems with trillions of microorganisms creating soil full of oxygen and nutrition directly where plant roots are. As microorganisms live, eat and die they create organic material, aerate soil and build habitat for fungal networks whose mycorrhizae are another essential element of soil health and plant fertility. The easiest way to feed your soil biome is by applying thick layers of good quality compost and mulch. Compost is organic material broken down over time by the heat generated from decomposition and the life cycles of nitrogen-loving bacteria, fungi and protozoa. Adding at least two to three inches of compost to your garden soil promotes healthy and abundant plant growth. A thick cap of mulch—such as wood chips, leaves, or straw—over compost retains soil moisture, protects shy microorganisms from direct sunlight, and breaks down slowly, further feeding your soil biology. In both garden and farm settings, it is ideal to disrupt the delicate layers of soil as little as possible. If you spread compost and mulch and then allow rain to thoroughly wet these layers, you will have delicious soil for spring plantings with little effort and no disruption of the soil surface.


Healthy, living garden soil is teeming with microorganisms which feed plants directly at their roots. A single teaspoon (1 gram) of rich garden soi an o d p to i ion a teria se era ards o nga a ents several thousand protozoa and scores of nematodes, according to Oregon State University Extension Service. Another way to build soil health with minimal effort is to plant a winter cover crop. Cover crops consist of fast growing, nitrogen-fixing plants such as peas, fava beans, vetch, oats and rye, which grow quickly even in cool weather. Just before cover crops are about to set seed, cut them to the ground and allow the spent material to decompose on top of your soil. You can plant into this “green mulch” after about two weeks. This acts as a weed barrier while also slowly releasing fertility into your soil. The spaciousness of healthy soil allows gardens to retain much more moisture, thus reducing water needs even once the rainy season is over. Your soil is a far more effective and efficient way to store rainwater than rain barrels. A thick layer of mulch soaks up rainwater while preventing erosion. You can even sculpt your garden to create mulch basins, depressions in the soil filled with one to two feet of mulch which soak and sink even more rainwater into your soil. Timing garden tasks around rain is essential for success. I have no use for smart phone weather forecasts, but highly recommend Weather Underground’s detailed predictions. Time soil-tending tasks such as spreading compost and mulch or seeding a cover crop just before a good, soaking rain. Working with our seasonal rain patterns is also essential to the long-term health of perennial plantings such as native plants, shrubs and trees. Winter’s cooler temperatures and rain reduce transplant shock and allow plants to establish before hot, dry weather sets in, ensuring your plants’ health. Select a few perennial California native plants and/ or fruit trees to invest in the long-term health and productivity of your space, no matter its size. Winter is also the time to tend peren-

nials. While I leave some woody material from the summer garden standing to provide habitat for birds and over-wintering insects, removing any dead or diseased branches and foliage from fruit trees and perennials is important for their health. Here at the community garden, we prune our fruit trees in the winter to maximize their fruit production next spring and summer. As we prune, we mulch heavily around the bases of trees to retain moisture and improve soil fertility. If any trees are looking sad, we also drench the soil or spray the leaves with compost tea. It is easy to grow vegetables, fruit and owers year-round in our mild coastal climate. However, the more mellow pace of winter growth provides you with extra time to focus on building the soil fertility, water retention and overall health of your garden. Alena Steen is coordinator of the Carpinteria Garden Park, an organic community garden located at 4855 5th St., developed by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. Community members rent a plot to grow their own fresh produce. For more information, visit carpinteriaca.gov/parks-and-recreation.


at’s ne at t e harbor seal rookery?

Sealwatch volunteers enjoyed a quiet week on the beach. They met many friendly people coming to Carpinteria to enjoy the warm weather. And due to the high surf, this week, the seal rookery and haul out area were relatively inaccessible, and even at lower tides it was difficult to access them for much of the week, which eased the concerns of low tide volunteers. This report covers Jan. 11 - 17.

High Adult Count



Pup Count


No pups yet. Typically, seal pups can be seen beginning late January, though earlier births are not unusual.

Natural History Notes

Harbor seals are considered nonmigratory, spending their lives in the same general area and using the resting and rookery sites in their home range year-round. Local tagging studies indicate the Santa Barbara Channel area is the extent of the range for local harbor seals. Some sources suggest that females typically return to the same rookery year after year. Studies in other areas have found larger ranges— Glacier Bay Alaska seals were recorded foraging over many hundreds of miles though they still returned to the same haul outs and rookeries. The reason people don’t often see Carpinteria harbor seals in the summer is due to the human disturbances on their beach, forcing them to find other places to rest.


Covid-19 has limited the number of docents at the overlook, so Sealwatch is not counting visitors this year. However, Sealwatchers filling some shifts note at least as many if not more people at the overlook. Sealwatch asks visitors to help protect the seals by continuing to be quiet and avoid sudden movements at the bluff’s edge.

The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs ature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may ee and become separated from their pups. olunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. olunteers needed. Call 05 4- 47 or email carpsealwatch gmail.com. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.

Madam VP paves path for girls PHOTOS BY DEBRA HERRICK

Kamea, 5

On J an. 20, K amala Harris was sworn in as vice president of the United States, making her the first woman—and the first Black and South Asian person—to hold this position. Breaking one of the country’ s highest glass ceilings, Harris is now the woman who has held the highest elected office in American history. Harris is also the first Californian to serve as vice president. The historic milestone was met with glee and optimism at G irls Inc. of Carpinteria, where girls are taught that they can overcome serious barriers to grow up strong, s mart and bold.

I think the significance of seeing a woman taking an office higher than any other woman is important and even more so because she is a woman of color. Even if its lost on some girls because they are so young,


excited! It’s so


It’s the first

It’s exciting

this is


to finally see someone like us in the White House. It makes me feel happy to know that these girls have someone to look up to in such a high office.

Marisa, GI facilitator


Valeria, 6, and Louisa, 6

happy, proud and amazed. I feel so

She will be a perfect vice president to help other people. She really loves to help and cares about other people. Gia, 11 Most of the time we don’t realize how big of an influence the media has on children. Growing up, it was mostly men in office and if there were women, it was mostly white women. So, my first thought when I found out was these girls. And I just hope that this moment in history can remind them

they can do whatever they put their minds to.


Alyssa, GI facilitator

Lorella, 9

Aileen, 6

It feels safer now

because we have a woman as vice president because she’s a girl and will look out for girls. Also, before, men were more in charge and now, we proved women can do anything. Natalie, 11

A MONTHLY MUSE MELINDA WITTWER I had a knee replacement last February in anticipation of many more years of playing with my grandchildren, traveling to exotic countries, enjoying San Francisco with my son and adventuring with friends. Well, my knee is strong and ready with hardly a scar, but the Covid-19 virus is really cramping my style. Instead of exploring the world, my husband and I have done numerous jigsaw puzzles, learned how to binge on what et ix has to offer, argued over which news program to watch and then cringed over the tragedies that are engulfing our world. It’s been almost a year now of being shut off from our usual human interactions, but I think there is a small, rather dim light at the end of this tunnel. Our vaccines are coming soon, especially if you are ancient. Those of us 65 and older are getting ready for our first round of inoculations. Getting vaccinated is not just to protect ourselves; it is also essential to protecting others. An acquaintance who contacted me recently was adamant

that he and his wife were healthy and therefore not getting the vaccine. I gave him the “evil eye” and tried to get him to see the error of his ways—all to no avail. Smallpox was virtually eliminated because literally everyone got vaccinated. It is the same with polio. Now is not the time to pull out the stupid card. But, and this is a big but, we still have months hopefully not years of wearing masks and social distancing and washing hands and staying away from large groups of people. And I’m getting bored. I’m not enjoying cleaning my house. I’m not interested in gourmet cooking except for desserts and we certainly don’t need an abundance of those. I’ve watched more TV in the last nine months than I’ve watched since my dad bought our first T in 1957. On the other hand, I am getting to be quite good at solving Sudoku puzzles. Unfortunately, I tend to cheat when I try to do crosswords, as my computer is much better at solving these than I am. So, let’s get started on brightening up life until our real lives start again. Well, I want to hug my grandsons and read to them and take them to the bookstore and the movies. But they live in Texas, a waytoo-hot-in-the-summer and cold-in-thewinter place that is way-too-far-away and way-too-unhealthy. And I’m not getting on any plane in the near future. So, I’m consoling myself with Facetime and the phone. This is not much consolation but better than nothing. Next, since it’s going to be spring soon,

m not interested in o rmet ookin e ept or desserts and we ertain y don t need an a ndan e o those. e wat hed more in the ast nine months than e wat hed sin e my dad o ht o r first in . I’m thinking of working in the yard. I love succulents due to their hardiness and their ability to live on little water. Thus, I’m going to do planting. We live in garden country, so I’m upping my game and might even add a lavender plant or two. One of the best therapeutic hobbies for me is pottery. When I am throwing on the wheel, I am focused only on what I am creating. I’m not worried about things I have no control over. I’m not thinking of time lost or lost adventures. I am creating something that will be pleasing and useful. And if I fail, I can just try again and again until I am content. If you have never tried working with clay, I highly recommend it. At some point, the Carpinteria Arts Center will offer clay classes again when life is a bit safer. Believe me, playing with clay is good for people of all ages. Perhaps the best lifeline for me to entertain myself is reading. I read books, magazines, newspapers and the cereal box if nothing else is available. One of my

friends is a great supplier of books that she passes on when she’s done with them. I am also catching up on books “I’ve been meaning to read” and I download audio books from the library, a great and free way to amuse myself when walking or driving to Ojai, Ventura, Santa Barbara or Buellton, the only four places my car has been to since last March. To survive, I will continue to do all the safety measures that are recommended. I will make do with phone calls and outdoor teas with only one or two friends and wedging clay and straining my eyes to read. But never fear, I am already planning which travel adventure to take (with a stop-off in Texas as soon as Dr. Fauci says the coast is clear. e inda ittwer first mo ed to arpinteria in and ta ht most y nior hi h st dents in nard d rin her -year areer. ow retired she en oys pottery writin ooks and tra e .

M AT T D U N C A N There’s a saying that those who can’t do, teach. Joe (Jaime Foxx)—the main character in Pixar’s latest animated feature, “Soul”—hopes he’s the exception. Joe is a middle-school band teacher. So, yes, he teaches. But he sure can do it too—that is, he sure can play the piano. And his dream is to make it big in the New York City jazz scene. But things haven’t exactly taken off for Joe. He’s a middle aged guy with a pot belly, out-of-style clothes, and a dad mustache. His students love him, sure. But, as Joe’s mom likes to remind him, his musical career is a pipe dream. Until, that is, one of Joe’s former students—whom Joe inspired to be a professional musician—asks him to drop by his band’s practice session to see if he can fill in at piano. Joe is way nervous, but he nails the audition. The famous leader of the band, Dorothea (Angela Bassett), is impressed, and that is all it takes. Joe is in! So, naturally, Joe is on cloud nine. Then he isn’t. Instead, he is on a more literal cloud heading to the great beyond. For Joe died. (Or something like that. Maybe he’s not quite dead? Just about to die? The metaphysics are a little unclear.) In his distracted, post-tryout euphoria, Joe fell into a manhole and his little, phosphorescent blue soul wakes up in a different place. Joe resists. He’s not ready to die. Not only does he really, really want to play with Dorothea’s band, he has this idea that, if he doesn’t, his life will have been pointless, meaningless. So Joe exploits a glitch in the heavenly machinery to move from the “Great Beyond” to the “Great Before”—the place where unborn souls are readied for life on Earth. Joe gets roped into being a “soul counselor” for unborn souls in need of guidance. Unfortunately, he gets assigned 22 (Tina Fey). 22 is pretty much a hopeless case. Everyone from Gandhi to Abraham Lincoln to Mother Teresa has tried to mentor 22, but to no avail. 22 is stubborn—she doesn’t want to be born. But Joe is desperate to get back to arth, and he figures he can hitch a ride with 22 if he gets her born. So he tries. The main ingredient missing for 22 is her lack of a “spark.” oe tries to help her find it—in music, art, science, food, sports and whatever. Nothing works. So oe tries a different tack—he gets hooked up with some hippie mystics who help lost souls, and they agree to help him get back to Earth. And he succeeds! The problem is, he accidentally brings 22 along too. The even bigger problem is, 22 is in Joe’s body and Joe is in the body of a therapy cat. Joe frantically searches for more hippie magic while simultaneously trying to preserve the career opportunities he had worked so hard for. Meanwhile, 22 is gob smacked by life (again, in Joe’s body), and Joe is learning

riter and poet a d ards is a ost or t e Carpinteria Arts Center’s ne irt a e ent Co nit oi es a on to experience the world from a different perspective (in a cat’s body). 22 eats pizza, inspects interesting ora and fauna, feels, hears, touches and smells. She’s no longer thinking about purposes and sparks and the like. At the same time, Joe is trying so hard to get his old life back, but he begins to wonder about what he, or anybody, should, in the end, at the core, strive for. Fame? Success? Accomplishments? Or something else? “Soul” is pretty abstract. With all the talk of souls, purpose and sparks, it definitely runs the risk of going over younger kids’ heads. It also runs the risk of feeling less approachable, warm and (dare I say it) soulful than more concrete, Earthly stories. For comparison, Pixar’s “Inside Out”— about tiny little mental states—also ran this risk. But “Inside Out” totally nailed it because there was enough concrete scaffolding in the background, the characters were really amusing, and the abstract bits tied in nicely with the real-life bits and provided some powerful insights. “Soul” has some, but not all, of that. The otherworldly scenes are a bit dry, long and (again, dare I say it) lifeless. And the connection between the two realms felt more made up and less real—versus the mental realm in “Inside Out” which, in essence, felt pretty true to life. Also, the very end of “Soul” is regrettably cheesy. Nonetheless, “Soul” has some high points too. What Joe and 22 realize about what a “spark” is (hint: it ain’t just an interest in music, science or sports) is nothing short of profound. And how this might reshape their—and our— conception of what makes a life worth living is thought-provoking and, I think, compelling. So, just as Joe might in the end recommend to us that we live for the here and now, rather than something dreamier or loftier; in a similar way, I recommend that you watch “Soul,” not for the comparatively banal stuff set in the clouds, but for the concrete, true-to-life, moving, powerful, well done scenes and insights from Joe’s life. “Soul” is rated PG for thematic elements and some language.

ART in FILM launches 10th anniversary year A



Where has ART in FILM been? I’m guessing you never expected that the popular ART in FILM documentary series would be on hiatus for so long. Well luckily, the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Art Center is jumpstarting a new season, and they’ll be offering suggestions for some old and new favorites to stream at home until the series can return to the big screen. It’s the least we can do in the 10-year anniversary year of ART in FILM. Yes, longtime fans may remember that our little “series that could” started in July 2011 at the Carpinteria Branch Library meeting room and became a goto monthly Tuesday night event for art lovers. The first film shown was “Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight”—a love letter to the New York City graphic design legend—that we are featuring again now for home viewing. The series was a bash and blessed with serendipity as people would pop up in the audience who were experts at what we were showing and contributed to the lively discussion: a piano restorer the night we showed “Note by Note— The Making of Steinway,” a Carpinterian and former NY break dancer when we screened the exhilarating “Planet B-Boy,” and people who “were there” when New York was Abstract Expressionism. Eventually, the series hit the local “big time” when we were able to move to the Alcazar Theatre and have room for fans from Santa Barbara, Ojai, Montecito, Goleta, as well as Carpinteria locals. And we benefitted tremendously from having the film expertise, enthusiasm and managerial skills of Kim Gutierrez who worked with us on the series. While we hope for a return to the theater before too long, we do have a suggestion for a return to our part-

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California



Lima beans were here

LEFT: Built in 1910 to replace a smaller facility, the Henry Fish Seed Company packinghouse handled the yearly shipment of thousands of tons of Lima beans. The packinghouse, according to a Santa Barbara newspaper account following its opening, was “a model of convenience and which admits of the quickest dispatch to handling the seed beans. Indeed, there is not on the coast another seed bean warehouse that embodies so many features of merit.”

Editor’s note: This nugget of Carpinteria history was written by David Griggs and originally published in the Winter 2012 edition of Carpinteria Magazine. Lima beans – either love them or hate them, but in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Carpinteria definitely had a mad love affair with the Lima bean. The first commercial planting of Lima beans and their development as a favorite (or vilified) North American food began in Carpinteria. Little known in this country before 1865, the Lima bean is actually a native of Guatemala, from where it had been carried to South America and widely planted as a food staple for millennia. In the late1860s, Robert McAlister, tired of working the northern gold mines, settled on farming in Carpinteria. One day McAlister rode into Santa Barbara to meet his brother who had just arrived on a sailing ship from South America. Among the ports where they traded, McAlister ’s brother had seen the strange flat, white beans at Callao, chief seaport of Peru. They were called Limas, as they grew on the hilly farms surrounding the Peruvian capital of that name. McAlister was so enamored of the starchy beans served at dinner on board ship he convinced the cook to pack-up 10 pounds for him to take home to plant in his Carpinteria garden. The yield was very successful, and ranchers from all over the valley came to see the new bean. McAlister was generous with the seed and many other plots were sown with e ually good results. Lima beans thrived here due to the rich soil, but also because of the foggy summers. As a dry-farmed crop which was harvested in the fall, without moisture from fog, the beans would have been too dry and would have cracked open during the threshing process, rendering them worthless. That despised May gray and June gloom turned Limas into gold. Selling beans locally was not going to pay the bills for Carpinteria farmers, so Jefferson Crane decided to introduce the beans to the east and develop the market. After planting 1 0 acres of Limas in 1 74, he contracted with an old friend in ew ork to sell them. But as fotune would have it, they arrived just as the effects of the depression of 1873 were being felt, and no one wanted to try the unusual flat, misshapen bean with the funny name. At this point, Crane’s father came to the rescue. He went east, took samples of Limas and literally peddled them door to door in 48 cities to introduce them to eastern tables. He spent two years at the task and finally disposed of the beans. His salesmanship paid off, people liked the beans, and the demand increased until there was a steady mar-


Limas were originally threshed by the old Mexican method of piling the dried plants in a corral and running livestock over them to knock the beans from their pods. Later, steam powered threshing machines were developed. This threshing “party” took place on the G.A. Franklin Ranch.

They would remove any cracked or broken beans that would not be viable seeds. RIGHT: Henry Fish, the Carpinterian name most commonly associated with Lima beans, stands ta in a e d o is as rop ket over most of the country. By 1 0, 1,500 tons of Limas were being shipped from the valley by steamer from the wharf at Serena. The Santa Barbara paper of May 24, 1880 reports, “A gentleman from Carpinteria today informs us that everybody down there is crazy on Lima beans. They have even planted beans along the roadway. Beans, beans, beans as far as the eye can reach. Beans enough out there, he says, to make the whole city of Boston happy for years to come.” During these years, local farmer Henry Fish was experimenting with Limas on his ranch along Linden Avenue. Fish wrote the seed companies about Carpinteria Limas and was commissioned to ship 00 bushels. The Henry Fish Seed Company was born. But the local bean crop really blossomed when the Carpinteria Fordhook was patented

The Lima beans are bagged and ready for market. The team of horses and wagon are owned by Marcus Cravens. His workers are pictured, too.

This threshing “party” took place on the Bailard property. and put on the market in 190 . This new variety was discovered in one of Fish’s fields an extraordinary plant of bush form loaded with larger, finer pods of excellent flavor. The best feature of the Fordhook was that it did not trail on the ground but grew upright, so the pods were held high and less susceptible to mildew. The immense popularity with both farmers and gardeners of this new Lima bean variety led Henry Fish to construct the largest seed packinghouse west of the Mississippi at the foot of Palm Avenue. Lima beans continued to be one of the main alley crops as walnut orchards were converted to lemons, where limas were planted between rows of small lemon trees. They appeared at potluck dinners with regularity. In fact, when Carpinterians spoke of beans, they

meant Limas. The Henry Fish Seed Company closed in the 1950s when Alfred Thurmond grew the last crop of Lima beans and the bean house was converted to packing tomatoes. Since those early days, genetic engineering and selection have changed nearly all of our garden vegetables, but the fresh-frozen Fordhook Limas bought today are the same heirloom bean that Henry Fish perfected in the early 20th century in his Carpinteria bean field!

Layman leads Rotary Morning’s Carp Aid Diem CVN

MISSION POSSIBLE LAUREN GRAF A Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning member since 2019, Mary Layman has helped build the club’s Carp Aid Diem initiative from the ground up. She, husband Otto, and club members Leana Orsua, Sheila Murphy, Paige Van Tuyl and Tamarind Harman organized a five-week gift certificate fundraiser to support local businesses impacted by Covid-19, raising over $10,000. Layman attributes her passion for service to her parents, Joe and Elizabeth Corbett. “I have always been of the mind that there are two paths when confronted with a need: you can complain about it and hope that someone else will take care of it, or you can roll up your sleeves and get involved solving the problem yourself,” Layman said. “My parents were doers, active participants in change and service, and they ingrained that philosophy in me. That also taught me that it wasn’t a chore or work, per se; there is a joy in service to the community.” Layman’s parents were Baptist missionaries. Her father was an active preacher into his 90s at the Family Baptist Church of Carpinteria. One impactful experience early in Layman’s life was her family fostering 28 children at their home over 17 years. Many of their kids had disabilities or special needs, and Layman said caring for these children taught her compassion and the importance of giving. Her parents also demonstrated volunteerism through caring for the elderly and infirm at their church, and Layman recalled her dad leaving home before sunrise to help at a local food bank into his 80s. After 45 years of working in real estate in Santa Barbara and raising five children, Layman brought her husband and youngest daughter to Carpinteria in 2012 to live closer to her father as he entered his 90s. How did you become involved with Carpinteria Morning Rotary? I had been looking for a way to meet

the joy. That joy made all the hard work worth it.

some of the people of Carpinteria because after my dad passed away, we decided that we were going to make Carpinteria our home. Rotary was a great way for me to meet the people that are the foundation of our community and also to give service to other people in our community.

Has the pandemic made you realize anything about why you volunteer? The impact that we can have on other people’s lives—a lot of times, we put that off, we say, “Okay, well, we’ll do that when we retire.” But I think with the pandemic, there’s been a real sense of urgency because mortality has really hit us in the face. We should all be conscious in helping other people that really need the help or that do reach out. And a lot of us put it off, like, “Someone else is gonna do it” or “I’ll do it later.” I really didn’t have this time to do Carp Aid Diem but I carved it out and I thought, “This is really the most important thing to do right now for my community, even though it takes a lot of time, I’m gonna do it.” So, whether it be the pandemic with Covid-19 or walking across the street, you’re just not guaranteed how much time you have left. So, I think because of Covid-19, I’m more interested in doing things where I can make an impact now, as opposed to putting it off to when I retire.

What sort of feedback did you receive from community members regarding Carp Aid Diem? Carp Aid Diem was assistance to the community and businesses. With Carp Aid Diem, business owners were overwhelmed with gratitude that someone would do something like this without wanting anything in return. One business owner compared the support from our community to Los Angeles and other places they had lived, and said to me that no one would ever dream of doing something like this except in Carpinteria. Carp Aid Diem is, I think, a natural extension of the philosophy that has been ingrained in me since childhood, the idea that service to our community, whether that is school, town or church, is a fundamental part of being alive. It is what defines us as people. Do you have any special memories from volunteering throughout your life? When I headed the fundraising for the Santa Barbara High School theater program in 2007 to send 36 young artists to the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh to perform, it was already a difficult time due to the financial market, but we raised $240,000 to send the student actors to perform on the world’s stage. When the students made their debut on the Royal Mile in Scotland on a cold and rainy day, they sang a song from “Hair,” “Let the Sun Shine.” As they stood in the street on stage singing, the sun suddenly broke through as if on cue and shined directly on them. You could see the joy in their faces and hear it in every note they sang. They were performing by invitation only and honored by the Fringe Festival and all those around them, not to mention their family and friends back home. People crowded around to listen and were amazed to see such joy and hear these wonderful young voices that were so incredible. For me to have been a part of something so memorable, something that had such an impact in so many students’ lives, where what I did enabled them to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience that would stay with them forever, that was
