The organization pledged to donate 100% of retail shop proceeds to help fund STEAM related programs and resources for the Carpinteria Unified School District. Last year’s fundraiser raised over $35,619.40 for CEF, and the group is aiming to match that for this year’s fundraiser.

Union, middle school teachers claim lack of support from district

Several district employees alleged a lack of financial and structural support for teachers from the district at the school board meeting last week, including Jay Hotchner, president of the Carpinteria Association of United School Employees, Crystl Hotchner, a math teacher from Carpinteria Middle School and Kelly Vergeer, a science teacher from Carpin teria Middle School.

At the Sept. 27 Carpinteria Unified School District school board meeting, Crystl said the district “continues to ig nore” its staff’s issues.

“Teachers, support staff and union leadership have been encouraging the district to embrace a more effective pos ture regarding staffing, substitute teacher coverage and compensation, for years,” Crystl said.

She also called the district’s $2,000 signing bonus for incoming teachers for the 2022-23 school year “a mere Band-Aid for a much bigger problem that could’ve been handled years ago.”

Several teachers, including Vergeer, have cited this lack of support and proper funding as a reason the district has lost valuable teachers, and been unable to attract qualified candidates.

During her comment, Vergeer request ed financial records of raises and bonuses for several district administrators from 2017 to present, including Superintendent Diana Rigby, the assistant superinten dent, and principals of Aliso, Canalino, Summerland, Carpinteria Middle School, Carpinteria High School and Rincon High School.

“Many people on this list have gotten bonuses on schedule and off schedule that I’d like to compare to teacher com pensation,” she said.

AHA! Director speaks on district partnership

The school board heard an end of the year report from AHA!, or the Attitudes, Harmony and Achievement program, for the 2021-22 school year at its Tuesday night meeting.

AHA! is a social and emotional learn ing program focused on social awareness, relationships and social skills, to help improve students’ mental and academic outcomes. The Carpinteria Unified School District has been working with AHA! for more than 15 years, according to the orga nization’s executive director Roxy Petty.

Petty talked about her work facili tating conversations between kids who do and don’t get along, and how those conversations impacted more than just the students involved.

“The work that we do is not just about conversation and talking,” Petty said. “It is about what we can bring to our youth, their parents, their educators, the staff they work with at their schools and for you to experience it as you walk down your streets.”

During the 2021-22 school year, AHA! served over 1,148 students through Hero assemblies, 860 students through Peace Builder groups and presentations, 45 ed ucators through educator workshops and 32 parents through parent groups and education workshops, according to Petty.

Melissa Lowenstein, the adult training director of AHA!, said CUSD was “way ahead of the curve” in terms of under standing that social emotional learning must be taught to students and adults to be truly effective.

“It has to go to the kids, it has to go to the teachers, and it has to go to the par ents, and that’s how it impacts the whole community,” she said.

Teacher requests records of administrator raises

Later, the board’s student represen tative Neida Garcia announced some upcoming events at Carpinteria High School, including Coffee with the Prin cipal event for CHS parents at 7:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 7. in the Administration building and the Homecoming dance on Saturday, Oct. 15.

The board also approved a new board policy, due to the recent passing of As sembly Bill 367 – the Menstrual Equity for All Act – which requires any school site serving students grades six through 12 to have an adequate supply of menstrual products available and free of charge for students.

The general scope of work for improve ments to the Carpinteria and Palm Ave nue intersection, near Carpinteria Middle School, has been approved. Sheaffer said the design is complete, and the

will likely be completed before the end of the year.

The Carpinteria High School crosswalk safety improvement project is now in the hands of Caltrans, Sheaffer said, due to Foothill Road being a state highway.

Be a part of homeless solution

In response to “Concerns with home less population” (CVN Vol. 29, No. 2): I agree that there are visible signs of homeless citizens living among us. They congregate on Carpinteria’s benches, parks and the library. Where shall we send them? What are the circumstances that have put these citizens on the street? Can we listen to their needs and find a collective solution that many similar cities are exploring? Carpinteria is a generous town. Our city council has been wrestling with this concern for years!

I encourage anyone who is interested to come and visit the Carpinteria Veter ans’ Memorial Building at 11:30 a.m. on any Wednesday to see the good work being done.

Yes on T protects water table

I oppose the Surfliner Inn project that has been proposed by our city council on public property and will be voting Yes on Measure T for several important reasons. A major one that has not been emphasized enough is how new develop ment negatively impacts a critical limited resource: water.

California’s lack of water is not merely a “severe drought,” which implies that it is temporary. Well-respected climatol ogists have predicted this severe water shortage for the last two decades based on climate change. California hasn’t seen this drastic decline in rainfall since the mid1500s. Like it or not, this is our new reality.

Carpinteria relies on groundwater. This is not an endless, bountiful resource. It is also affected by the long-term water shortage.

The city should be mindful of pro tecting the environment and our limited resources long term over making shortterm profits. It has no business promot ing new development, which will place even more demands on this very limited resource.

Please join me in voting Yes on T. T for Truth. T for Table – protecting our water Table.

Don’t be fooled by campaign flyers

With each election we see many flashy, high gloss flyers in the mail supporting one or another candidate or measure. This year we see the same misrepresentation by the No on Measure T group. Do you believe them? Almost every statement they make contradicts the City’s 9212 report. That report was presented before the Carpinteria City Council, as allowed by state law.

Legal language is confusing, and I am quoting from those documents and placing more familiar language in “peo ple speak.”

For example, “City staff interprets that the addition of ‘existing parking’ to the OSR (Open Space Recreation) Land Use category definition does not by itself pre clude ‘new parking’ on OSR designated parcels within the City.” (p.10, paragraph 3). In other words, parking is allowed.

Another example from the No cam paign: Measure T will lead to “High density multi-family residential devel opment of Parking Lot 3?” Whereas the city wrote, “While Measure T2022 would continue that residential overlay, per state law, the density allowable follows the underlying density and the only housing allowed on REC (Recreational) zone is a caretaker’s dwelling on Parking Lot #3” (9212 Report, p.11, paragraph 3). So,



serving the true open space and quality of life in our city. The Yes on T folks don’t want the Surfliner. That’s clear. But the measure they’ve created could harm our city way more than having, or not having the Surfliner.

I agree with Jim Taylor’s letter from last week (“Downtown Space is an Oxymo ron” CVN Vol. 29, No. 2): Let’s have an official and public debate on the matter, and not saddle the city (and all those of us who love it – both for and against T), with potential real future problems, and vote down this misleading and troubling Measure T.

Support sustainable tourism, “No on T”

there will be NO high density residential development there.

The city attorney stated that “no other OSR (Open Space Recreation) parcels in the city have this (residential) overlay.” So why are there so many misrepresenta tions or false statements made by the No folks? They seem to be using scare tactics and intimidation.

What does YES on Measure T2022 do? It stops commercial development of public land, i.e. the hotel, on parking lot 3. Public land owned by Carpinterians will be safe from private developers. It main tains the Carpinteria we all love – the last small-beach town in Southern California.

Vote YES on Measure T.

“No on T” campaign insults voters

The negative Measure T flier that ar rived in my mailbox with a photo of five cars in Parking Lot #3 chose to title this photo, “Measure T Open Space.” Stand in the parking lot for The Spot (home of Julia Child’s favorite cheeseburger) and turn toward our mountains. This is the True “Open” view/space.

Please do not insult Carpinteria voters’ intelligence with such obvious falsities. Also, note return address on this obvious ly expensive propaganda: Santa Barbara. And nowhere on this flier was there a statement that this was printed on 100% recycled paper – perhaps an indication of the future environmental attitude from proposed hotel developers. I trust my fellow Carpinteria voters to “see” for themselves.

Carpinteria is not dying, vote “Yes”

What remarkable chutzpah the No on T – Protect Carp 2022 public relations team has shown in the slick postcard they sent out last week. I am compelled to respond to the bullet points as follows: Measure T does not threaten the future of our City in any way.

Carefully “thought out” city rules of development and land use can be rethought out as circumstances change.

As has been pointed out numerous times, the land is not zoned for multi family. It is just not true that high-density multi-family residential development will be allowed on Parking Lot #3 with Measure T.

Without a hotel on the parking lot, there will be parking and linked walking and bike trails – already in the works.

The parking lot serves a valuable pur pose to the people of Carpinteria as well

as visitors who do not travel by train. It is a practical use for open space.

We are currently making improve ments downtown; set to begin after the Avofest is the Seventh Street project. You want to upgrade the public parks to create amenities like parking? Do you even hear yourselves when you say these things?

Please enumerate the ways in which we are in direct conflict with state law. Housing? You are not providing a hous ing benefit.

We do have funds from Measure X that we did not have when this project was requested. We are in a drought. Staff and council are allowed to change direction when the circumstances change. We all could have saved some time and money if the community had been a part of the RFP, but we were not mentioned once. If making such outlandish efforts to save the Surfliner are being made, I have to wonder, why?

Carpinteria is not dying! Vote Yes on Measure T.

Let’s have a public debate on Measure T

The upcoming vote on Measure T is confusing for many people. On the one hand, there are many Carpinterians who are supportive of a Yes vote on T. And there are many Carpinterians who are No on T. And there are many who are confused by the messaging of both sides. The folks who are supportive of T are good people.

However, I am convinced they have misinterpreted (or don’t really under stand) the language of Measure T. There is a reason why four of five city council members are No on T: The potential re percussions of a Yes vote could be very harmful for our city with many unintend ed and potentially negative consequenc es, including how open space is used in the future. City legal staff has pointed out some of these concerns.

On the one hand, this is not about the Surfliner hotel project. It is about pre

“Sustainable tourism promotes high-quality, uniqueness, and home grown elements that are best suited to promoting the values, local attributes, and quality of life of rural areas and small towns.” The contrast of sustainable tour ism to mass-market tourism is very stark. While sustainable tourism strengthens local authenticity, mass-market tourism pursues volume – “heads in beds.”

Our downtown is in a unique position to set the standard for our sustainable tourism.

Looking forward while honoring the past, now is the perfect time for commu nity’s leaders to huddle, plan and set into motion the mechanics required to support our downtown merchants, re-envision local tourism, all while retaining our quaint business corridor for locals and tourists alike.

Carpinteria has 721 hotel rooms with another 72 approved for a new hotel on Via Real and all are located along High way 101 – a prime example of mass-mar ket tourism where the primary goal is heads in the bed. Mass-market tourism pays little attention to the consumption of scarce natural resources, local preser vation or future sustainability. Wouldn’t it be smart for us to aim for fewer lower-cost hotels, less traffic, less water usage by offering quality over quantity?

Seems logical we create areas in our visitor-serving downtown where tour ists can travel by train, stay in boutique hotels, shop local merchants, all without the need of cars and all required to prac tice the elements of sustainability. Cities all over the world are leveraging public transportation for their tourism base, why not Carpinteria? And maybe some of those hotels along the 101 can be con verted into the much-needed affordable housing our state is mandating.

During 16 years on the Carpinteria City Council, Al has demonstrated the commitment, judgment and integrity that set him apart, and Carpinteria is a far bet ter place for that. He championed Mea sure X so that Carpinteria could enhance public services, without trading away our unique, small-town quality of life.

Al Clark has the distinction of being the only incumbent city council member running for re-election that listened to public outcry and rejected irregularities in a district mapping process that appeared to put the interests of certain incumbents before those of Carpinteria. Al’s endorse ment from the Democratic Party and the commitment to women’s rights reflected in a 100% rating from Planned Parent hood confirm what those of us who know him understand profoundly.

Where is Warrior pride?

Dear Carpinteria High School and war rior athletics: As a proud warrior alumni class of 2011, I was very disappointed when I returned this last Friday from Colorado to watch the warriors and my little brother play.

This first thing I noticed when I parked was the athlete mural outside the gym was painted over. Those were not just fig ures up there. They were actual people/ family members that were painted up there for generations of warriors, athletes and fans to enjoy and appreciate.

Then when I got inside the stadium, I noticed not one logo was painted on the field or in the end zone. The field has thatch and dead spots all over. If lack of water is the issue why does the baseball field never look like that? Where has our warrior pride gone? I am proud of all those boys who go out every week to keep the warrior spirit alive. Warrior spirit is still much alive in these kids. Let’s do our part to help them. I hope the next time I come back for a game, the warrior spirit is shown loud and proud. If not, it’s time for a change.

Weed woes

I propose the following political will (which no one I have spoken to agrees with, likes or thinks is stupid.) Hey, story of my life, so I will press on.

The cannabis smell really, really stinks. I pity those more affected than I. The burden is on the growers to alleviate this nuisance. Of course, that will not happen without two things: Conditions of approval with teeth and monetary incentives.

Why in the hell can’t we in Carpinteria receive compensation? Yes, I mean big dollars, for the ubiquitous, oppressive and nauseating stench of the devil weed? I believe this community, which is affect ed more than any other, should receive a percentage of the cannabis gross income.

No one needs weed to live. It’s not food and even though I personally approve of it in any form, it should not be at the expense of the entire community.

We should set a percentage of the profit as a tax for the inconvenience. This tax could be systematically reviewed and

lowered as new order elimination tech nology is created and installed. Where’s the incentive for growers to do anything not required?

Life seems very inside out these days.

A feather in CVN’s cap

I am writing to thank and congratulate the Coastal View News on its tradition of excellent service over the past 15 years, which is the only time period I can com ment on; I moved here in 2007.

Others who read the CVN regularly probably also understand that it balances many sensitive topics with considerable panache, one that I suspect many of us admire. It must be a tricky line to walk, and yet I often find myself admiring the eloquence with which this balance has been achieved year after year. Great performance often looks effortless, but of course the truth lies somewhere deeper.

A disclaimer: Yes, I have had two (I

think) letters printed in CVN over the past 15 years. And sometimes I can’t wait for the next issue simply because your crossword is one of the few things in life at which I can predictably have some success.

But I am prompted to write after view ing last week’s edition, Sept 29 (CVN Vol. 29, No. 2) which is jam-packed with all sorts of relevant info on a wide range of topics and includes graphs, pics, plans, maps... you name it. Not to mention excellent council member candidate coverage. All this so soon after personnel changes to carry your tradition forward, and with the Avofest right around the corner – no slouchers, you! Thus, we have

a community voice in Carp that we can be proud of.

Thank you simply for being there and doing such a great job.

Canaday, John J. Bustillos Jr., and James (Jimmy) C. Bustillos. Devastatingly, her youngest son, James C. Bustillos, passed away on March 22, 2019. She is also survived by her youngest sibling, Pete Parra, and older brother Edward Parra.

Amongst those siblings lost: Julietta Parra, Pedro Parra, Julia Parra Ruiz, Grace Parra Pedraza, Adela Parra Rodri guez, Amelia Parra Antu, Gloria Parra Gonzalez, Delfin Parra and Rene Parra.

Irma’s heart was filled with love and compassion, and she was a devoted loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She cared deeply for her church and community of Carpinteria nearly 60 years. She was a loyal donor to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Irma attended church regularly at The Carpenter’s Chapel in Carpinteria and was a selfless woman of great faith. Even in the last month of her life, she would engage in conversation highlight ing someone else and their family. She seldom directed attention to herself, and really wanted to know her loved ones were healthy and happy. Irma loved to cook and serve her friends and family, whether it was a weekend visit or a holi day celebration, and she was always the first to offer a dish or dishes. At Christmas she loved making tamales, which became a much-loved family tradition over the years.

In the few years, Irma lived with her daughter Roxanne Canaday and sonin-law Grant Gibson. Her love of life, beautiful smile, and joyful presence will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and community. We know she rests in the hands of God.

A service will be held on Friday, Oct. 28, 2022 at 2 p.m., at the Historic Carrillo Ballroom located at 100 E. Carrillo Street Santa Barbara.

Augustine Joseph “Joe” Saragosa

08/22/1930 – 09/14/2022

Augustine Joseph “Joe” Saragosa passed away on Sept. 14 at the age of 92. A kind man who was unwavering in his faith, he loved spending time with his family.

Joe was born in Carpinteria in 1930 to Julio and Teodora Saragosa. He was the ninth of ten children in his family. He graduated from Santa Barbara Catholic High School in 1949. He was inducted into the United States Army on May 23, 1951, and served as a rifleman on the front line in Korea.

Joe is survived by his wife of 67 years, Caroline Saragosa, and five children: Belinda Burns of Solvang, Susie and Dan Freese of Eureka, Elena and Edwin Warnock of Ventura, Angelo and Mary Saragosa of Carpinteria, and Leticia Saragosa and Evan Dalke of Santa Bar bara. He also leaves behind six grand children, nine great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.

Working at Omweg’s Hardware in Carpinteria for many years, he also worked nights packaging tortillas at his in-laws’ factory. He and his wife later opened a restaurant, Pepe Delgado’s on State Street in Santa Barbara. They moved to Atascadero in 1994.

Joe is predeceased by his parents and eight siblings. He is survived by his younger sister Rita Ledesma of Oxnard. Rita has fond memories of many family gatherings and enjoying music together. Rita recalls that visitors would come to the house and say they didn’t realize there was already company. Rita says, “we would tell them. ‘Oh no. We don’t have company – we all live here!’”

Joe loved photography. He told many stories of flying over Carpinteria tak ing pictures with his cousins. He was almost always behind the camera at family gatherings and on trips. He also loved music and had a large mariachi music collection. An avid gardener, he could fix anything. If he wasn’t behind the camera, he was taking charge of the barbecue, often with a glass of wine on ice.

A rosary and mass will be held on Nov. 5, 2022 starting at 11:30 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church: 1500 Linden Avenue, Carpinteria, CA. A reception will be held at St. Joseph School adjacent to the church immediately following the mass.

An Anniversary for the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center

A 20th anniversary slipped by unnoticed last year, due in part to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was in February 2001 that the Carpinteria Valley Arts Council (CVAC) was established as a nonprofit, which would later become the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center.

is CMYK 0-91-100-23. ed here.

There was a time a few years ago that mention of our local “arts center” might earn a quizzical glance. As in, “We have an arts center?” Now, however, the Carpinteria Arts Center is a vibrant part of the entire community, including a gallery, art classes, lectures, concerts, dances and children’s programs. It continues to be a time of growth. Currently, an anonymous donor wants to help the center celebrate its anniversary by offering a $50,000 donation match challenge, effective until Nov. 5.

have a veteran buried at Carpinteria Cemetery honor him or her with a flag on give us a call or send an email on or before May 28 will place a flag for you. include the person’s full name.

While looking forward, it’s also a time to recognize some milestones and thank the many people who brought the arts center to this point. In the early 1990s, members of the Carpinteria Valley Art League (est. 1974) were frustrated because they had no local venue to show their work. What they needed was a bricks-and-mortar gallery.

In late 1995, two women, Karen Browdy and Eddi Hastings, became the instigators, and they were immediately joined by nine other women and one man from the art league.

These artists created and personally funded “Step One: A Gallery,” which opened at 657 Linden Ave. in October 1996. The group and gallery were called Step One very intentionally, because the goal was step two, a fully realized arts center.

Three years later, in July 1999, Step One got the opportunity to rent the property at 855 Linden Ave., along with its white wooden cottage, giving the organization much greater visibility.

Then, in February 2001, with the financial assistance of Step One, CVAC was incorporated as a nonprofit to help carry the vision forward. Karen Browdy, along with Carpinteria resident Barry Enticknap, became co-chairs of the council. Still, leaders of CVAC were looking for a site to purchase.

In 2003, the owners of 855 Linden Ave., local Carpinteria artist Patti Sim and her sister, Delme McIntyre, offered to sell it to CVAC for a very reasonable $450,000. Board members Geri Campopiano, Kathleen Lord and their team led the capital campaign to purchase the property. Geri’s husband, Gary Campopiano (board chair from 2005- 2008), immersed himself in leadership, art exhibitions, programming, fundraising, real property matters and, ultimately, remodeling. In May 2005, CVAC purchased the property. The next year, Step One: A Gallery moved from the site, and CVAC took sole charge.

In a surprise turn of events, the neighboring Cajun Kitchen restaurant at 865 Linden closed its doors in 2015. Luckily, its owners were persuaded to sell the property to the organization.

Longtime chair and co-chair David Powdrell whose wife, Valerie, has volunteered at the arts center since 2009, led the capital campaign. The fundraising target?

In the early 1990s, members of the Carpinteria Valley Art League (est. 1974) were frustrated because they had no local venue to show their work. What they needed was a bricksand-mortar gallery.

$3.1 million. In the end, the total amount that David Powdrell and his team raised (and saved!) for the project amounted to $4,043,948. The remodel of the former Cajun Kitchen began in 2018, a project led by Norm Arnold, Gregg A. Carty and Joe Sevilla.

That same year, the nonprofit started doing business as the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, acknowledging the generosity and leadership of the longtime college administrator and educator. Additionally, its gallery is named after Charles Lo Bue.

A year later, 2019, a newly remodeled and landscaped arts center reopened for the people of Carpinteria. As the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center continues to grow and serve the arts community and beyond, it is grateful to all those people who, for over two decades, have brought the organization to this point.

The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center is a nonprofit located at 865 Linden Ave. Learn more at

Ask the Candidates

Nuh Kimbwala has worked in public education for more than 20 years as a teacher and administrator at the elementary and secondary school levels, including Colton Joint Unified School District in San Bernardino County, and Harding School in the Santa Barbara Unified School District.

Months after he was hired at Harding in August 2012, Kimbwala was placed on administrative leave for an alleged assault on a special education student. He was not charged. The district later paid Kimbwala for the remainder of his contract before removing him from his position, according to Noozhawk reporting at the time.

Carpinteria Unified School District Board of Trustees – Trustee Area 1

Three seats on the Carpinteria Unified School Board are up for grabs this election cycle. While two candidates are running uncontested – incumbents Andy Sheaffer and Sally Green – two candidates are battling for the seat in trustee area 1, in Summerland: Nuh Kimbwala and Eric Bridgford.

Sheaffer, trustee area five, and Green, trustee area two, declined to participate in this year’s Ask the Candidates forum because they are running unopposed.

Eric Bridgford

Eric Bridgford is an engineer and owner of the Carpinteria Dory Company, which specializes in the construction and restoration of wooden dory boats since 2017. Before creating this company, Bridgford worked as a reservoir engineer for Venoco, an offshore oil drilling company.

In light of his recent candidacy, Kimbwala denied the 2012 allegations to CVN, stating, “There is simply no documentary evidence that I have ever done anything inappropriate, illegal or unethical with respect to my work and four-week time at Harding.”

Introduce yourself and tell the community why you are running for the Carpinteria Unified School District Board of Trustees. Speak on any experience you bring to the table.

I’m Nuh Kimbwala and I’m running for the Carpinteria Unified School Board for Trustee Area 1, Summerland, because my family believes in the most robust public school education our state and district can afford to provide. We believe we owe it to ourselves and all our friends, neighbors and the future of our communities and our great state of California to get the highest possible return on investment of our current and future tax dollars.

I’m not a career politician, and I know that if I am elected and if we can’t collaboratively solve and resolve systemic issues and problems in two terms, then they may not be solvable. I am asking our local community voters to allow me to lead, govern and put my 20 years of classroom teaching and district administrative experience, 15-year combined board presidency experience and 10-year community volunteer service experience to the test.

The school district has faced a number of pressing issues in the past two years, particularly related to Covid-19 community levels and protocols. What do you see as the school district’s and students’ most important issue, and why?

Introduce yourself and tell the community why you are running for the Carpinteria Unified School District Board of Trustees. Speak on any experience you bring to the table.

My name is Eric Bridgford. I am a family man, business owner and ocean enthusiast. Myself, my wife and our two boys have lived in Carpinteria for almost 10 years now. I currently own a boat building company – the Carpinteria Dory Company – and my wife is the assistant director at Lou Grant Parent-Child Workshop. I attended public schools in Colorado, Montana and New Mexico; graduated from University of New Mexico with a bachelor’s degree in Geology; and earned a master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from Colorado School of Mines.

As an engineer I worked in large teams on complex multi-year projects. Analytical expertise, effective communication and teamwork are all skills that I would bring to the table if elected.

I am running for the Carpinteria Unified School Board because it is time to give back. Carpinteria has been such a welcoming and beneficial place for my family that I want to give back in a meaningful way. A good education is one of the keys to a successful happy life and I would like to contribute to that endeavor if elected.

The school district has faced a number of pressing issues in the past two years, particularly related to Covid-19 community levels and protocols. What do you see as the school district’s and students’ most important issue, and why?

Everyone involved in the world of education just went through two of the most difficult years in their profession. I want to acknowledge the amount of work the entire district did during this time. Moving forward, I think the most important task is to support the teachers, staff and students at every level. Effectively, this means attracting and retaining well qualified teachers and staff, giving them the support they need to do their incredible work and keeping our school facilities in good shape.

One additional issue I would like to work on as school board member is to ensure there is proper funding and support for physical education and the arts. I believe that time and energy spent on these activities creates a better learning environment and ultimately a better community.

Reflect a recent school board decision. Would you have made a different decision? Why or why not?

I would like to say that I am extremely pleased that the Summerland School is finally being rebuilt and we are looking forward to our youngest son attending the new school in January.

I think this school is critical to the Summerland community and enhances the Carpinteria Unified School District overall. I am also in favor of social emotional learning and the AHA! programs in our schools. I believe that these types of activities create the foundations for safer schools and communities. I applaud the school board for providing the resources for these programs.

I am the board president of both the Carpinteria Valley Little League and the Summerland by the Sea Homeowners Association. We were all impacted, and I had to lead and govern through extraordinary unique challenges presented by Covid-19. The amount of uncertainty and adversity was unprecedented to say the least. We are super proud of how our boards and staff responded in these critical moments and aftermath especially when local policies appeared to be changing weekly or by the hour of the most recent press release.

We believe the single most pressing issue remaining is school safety in all areas, including mental and physical health, wellness and self-care. Absolutely zero students and staff can learn in environments they don’t feel safe or comfortable in.

The second prioritized issue is our current student achievement data. The recent trends and trajectory for our district are not remotely proportionally close to our tax base “investment.” Frankly, they’re frightening! Our student achievement data is not sustainable for the future of our city, county and state. This long-standing trend was evident almost a decade before Covid-19 and has not been sufficiently addressed.

We have yet to deploy thoughtful, systematic sustainable plans, training and professional developments, interventions and corrective actions equal and above to our rate of regression while raising our objective, merit-based competitive world-class standards. We all have financed and deserve better.

Reflect a recent school board decision. Would you have made a different decision? Why or why not?

I may have questioned the timing and/or need to dismiss or release our current CAUSE Union President Jay Hotchner, based on the limited information available to the public at this time.

My reasoning includes the school district continuing to struggle with finding and completing the process of hiring essential staff, who may come and join our CAUSE membership. The district has also struggled with reaching mutual agreement in the current collective bargaining agreement with our CAUSE membership; reaching settlement, resolution or absolution in multiple current and potential pending future litigation with our CAUSE membership and struggled with inviting, recruiting and retaining high-caliber staff while deploying our CAUSE membership to aid us in these crucial vital efforts for all our sustainability.

As a matter of fact, I believe both Hotchner and his lovely wife are both educators in the district and have placed their children in our schools. Strategically we have yet again placed ourselves in an inopportune position to at least leverage our strengths while mitigating “collateral damages” and risk.

I’m confident that given the information, evidentiary documents, time and opportunity I could state more reasons, however as a current board member and multiple board president, we are always in the position of advocating to solve and resolve problems, while minimizing risk and increasing sustainability legally and fiscally. I know the overwhelming majority of our families, friends, staff, neighbors and community have a larger appetite for solutions and permanent resolutions than mediocrity and excuses. Thank you for your time and consideration. Please exercise your right and duty to choose wisely and vote.

Editor’s note: C.A.U.S.E. union president Jay Hotchner was placed on administrative leave in September 2022 and will remain on leave for an unspecified period. Carpinteria Unified School District Superintendent Diana Rigby declined to comment on personnel matters or how long Hotcher would be on leave.

New Carpinteria Valley Historical Society Director: Jayme Yahr

Coming to Carpinteria from Sacramento, the Carpinteria Valley Historical Society’s new director and curator, Jayme Yahr, told CVN she hopes to boost the society’s technology and promote a more diverse array of voices.

The nonprofit society runs the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History, located at 956 Maple Ave., which highlights the history of Carpinteria Valley.

Right now, the society has begun to tackle what Yahr called multi-year “big picture projects” – upgrading the society’s technology, including introducing a credit card system, and focusing on needed building maintenance.

But over the next year, she said she wants to focus on a “total rethinking of our exhibitions.”

Yahr holds an impressive resume, with a bachelor’s degree in art history from the University of California, Irvine, a master’s degree in art history from UC Davis and a PhD from the University of Washington. She has worked at several museum and historical societies and has taught at a number of universities, including Seattle Pacific University, Western Washington University and the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.

“I did various degrees in art history, and always with an eye toward museum and museum studies,” she told CVN.

“I’ve really interested in how people interact with objects. What better to tell the story of the region and the town than objects? The objects tell me more than the written text could tell me – an old clock, an old chest.”

Yahr grew up in San Diego and took summer trips to Santa Barbara growing up, and said Carpinteria caught her eye when the job opened up.

“I love that it’s a small town, but it’s a very dedicated, small town,” she added.

“They have stories to tell, which is perfect for our history museum. Folks have been here for generations. I love that some people call themselves ‘newbies’ but they’ve been here for thirty years. It’s a gem on the coast.”

She has big shoes to fill. Her predecessor, David W. Griggs, held the position for 36 years. “He had a lot of knowledge,” she said. “It’s a lot of knowledge to translate after many decades from one person to another. But we will continue forward.”

Yahr stressed that the historical society is always looking for volunteers, and to collaborate with other community organizers, and praised the group’s current volunteers. “We have a fantastic volunteer base.”

New Corktree owner seeks to bring back old favorites

As the new owner of Corktree Cellars – a Carpinteria wine & bistro, tucked into a cozy spot on Linden Avenue – Andre Jackson wants pay tribute to the café’s past by bringing back some old favorites, while also expanding into new territories.

Jackson, who lived in Carpinteria 14 years ago as a single mother with her son, was prompted to buy Corktree after the previous owners, Jessica Clark and her husband, told her they were selling it. “Corktree was one of the first places for us to go,” Jackson, who moved back to Carpinteria to take over the businesses, said. “I’ve got family here and coming back is full circle.

“I want to bring this place back to life, post-Covid.”

She added she wants to curate seasonal menus, reintroduce old favorites and better advertise the spot’s full liquor license. She plans to incorporate sports nights into the weekly schedule – with larger TVs now in place – and put the wine club back together.

The café now has better internet and audio visuals, she added, but much of the décor will remain the same, including the café’s famous wine wall. Jackson said regulars were “cautiously optimistic” when she took over, but feedback has been “super positive.”

“Things have been going very well. There are so many great regulars, and I have gotten a lot of good feedback (…) They know I have roots here,” she said.

Jackson’s son, Trey, added that he is glad to be back in Carpinteria. “My mom and I always told each other this was home and where we would like to eventually end up. I know we are both excited to take on this challenge,” he said.

Jackson’s band, the Vonettes, made an appearance at the recent California Avocado Festival.

Primal Wild Series

The Santa Barbara fine art gallery Silo118 announced an exhibition of new images by award-winning, Carpinteria-based photographer Patricia Houghton Clarke in a series titled “Primal Wild, A Redwood Series.”

Clarke’s series of the California Redwood were taken exclusively with a plastic Holga camera. “Today these ancient forests are under threat from wildfires and drought,” read the press release for the exhibition. “These awe-inspiring trees, many of which are thousands of years old, may become history if we do not fight to save them.”

Clarke said she will be donating partial proceeds from her book “Facing Ourselves: Reckoning” to organizations working to preserve these trees and their environment.

The show will run from Oct. 14–29, the opening reception will be on Oct. 15 from 5–7 p.m. and the artist talk with Clarke will be on Oct. 29 at 3 p.m.


Carpinteria Library recommends

zel, too, has been sentenced to the rough and remote Van Dieman’s Land.

Parallel to the voyage of Evangeline and Hazel, Kline weaves in the story of orphaned Mathinna, an Aboriginal girl whose father was the Chief of the Lowreenne tribe. The English had colonized parts of Australia, and relocated the native Aboriginal people, who had been settled there for 50,000 years. The new governor of Van Diemen’s Land and his wife have adopted the orphaned Mathinna, and Kline expertly describes the girls’ difficult experience.

There are plot developments that this reviewer won’t share but suffice to say, the narrative captures the reader’s attention, and the reader becomes very attached to the outcomes of these three women. The description of Newgate Prison, the challenging voyage on the Medea for Hazel and Evangeline, the trajectory of that baby Evangeline is carrying and Van Diemen’s Land all intertwine in a very good read!

“I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” by Michelle McNamara

Since it is October, let’s venture into spooky books. It’s certainly what the kids want to read. There are many very good books in this genre, including “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson, “The Shining” by Stephen King, and Thomas Tryon’s novel “The Other.”

However, the scariest book I’ve ever read is “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” by Michelle McNamara. It is a true crime whodunit, taking us through the years of terror the Golden State murderer wreaked on Californians. The story unfolds in many communities around the state, including Goleta. Crimes were committed in what seemed like a random pattern yet were well planned and executed. The perpetrator staked out homes, watched the comings and goings of his intended victims and would occasionally torture them by calling on the phone years after he had committed his crimes. It is the stuff of cheesy horror films – except it really happened. The part of the tale that includes genetic forensics is also very compelling.

Librarian’s caution: This should perhaps only be read during the day and preferably in the company of a good friend. And maybe with the doors locked.

“The Exiles” by Christina Baker Kline

Christina Baker Kline, author of “The Orphan Train,” knocks it out of the park with her most recent historical fiction novel “The Exiles.” The story interweaves the lives of three women whose lives touch one another, but also represents the hardships for women in early 19th century Great Britain and Australia.

Evangeline, a young, naive governess, is taken advantage of by the matron’s son. She is then accused of theft and sentenced to Newgate Prison, while carrying a child. The author’s vivid description of time and place is exquisite in the prison setting, as well as of the months’ long journey by ship to Australia, where Evageline has been sent Van Diemen’s Land to serve out her sentence. Upon her arduous journey on the ship, Evangeline befriends another woman, Hazel, an herbalist and midwife from difficult circumstances. Ha-

Carpinteria High School Advisory Period

CHS began its advisory period and new expectations have been created and shared with students and staff. Advisory is held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and lasts 30 minutes. During advisory, students are scheduled with a teacher they have during the day and athletic teams have been assigned to their coaches as much as possible.

Every Tuesday, students are required to complete a weekly grade check and notify their advisory teacher how they will improve by the following week. Students can also use this period to ask for additional guidance on homework assignments, test make-up, or projects.

English Language Development

Aliso and Canalino schools implement daily English Language Development (ELD) at all grade levels, K-5. English Language Learners (now called Emergent Bilingual students) are given 30 minutes

of instruction in ELD (vocabulary, listening, speaking, reading, and writing) with a certificated teacher. For kindergarten through third grade, students are grouped according to their current language level based on teacher assessments and the results of the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC). Teachers deliver instruction based on state adopted curriculum materials for ELD, and students who are native English speakers are given literacy enrichment (i.e., chapter books) with instructional assistants in small groups based on reading level.

Students in DLI who are acquiring Spanish as a second language also have small group Spanish Language Development with bilingual instructional assistants.

At CMS, the English Language Development program strengthens students’ literacy and language competency while teaching them the skills necessary to be successful on the ELPAC. Forty-nine (49) ELD students will be reclassified this year. CMS offers 1 ELD class that serves a newcomer cohort of 7 students, 2 sixth grade ELD classes,1 seventh grade ELD class, and 1 8th grade ELD class. Three bilingual instructional assistants also support newcomers in each grade level, and Global Studies classes are co-taught with an ELD teacher. Carpinteria High School has 3 sections of ELD this school year. Ms. Paredes and Ms. Carleton are piloting the curriculum English in Action in all classes and will be evaluating the program during this academic school year.

High School Voter Education Weeks (September 19-30); 2022 California Student Mock election (October 11)

CHS students will participate in the mock election in October to encourage civic engagement, awareness, and voting. Students have been invited to serve as Poll Workers, and there is a banner on CHS website for student voter registration.

People who describe their behavior as “all or nothing” can’t seem to strike a good balance with their health. They believe they must be “perfect” to get good results, and if they aren’t perfect, then they might as well throw their hands up and give in to all temptation or abandon what healthy habits they have established.

Rarely will this kind of thinking get you where you want to go. I liken it to the old adage of “two steps forward, one step back.”

This line of thinking often carries over into more than one meal or day of poor choices and can spiral until you find yourself in a place you really don’t want to be. It’s no longer two steps forward, one step back – it’ll be two steps forward, five steps back.

The reason most people think in this black and white outlook is typically because they are overwhelmed with what they are doing. When most of us decide that we’re “all in” we’re really just setting ourselves up for failure, because most humans aren’t built to succeed in that way.

You’re tricking yourself into thinking that this poor decision will make you feel better, just because it might be the easier

All or Nothing Thinking

route in the moment, or because what you’re doing hasn’t worked as perfectly as you imagined.

Spoiler alert: It won’t make you feel any better.

On top of that, every time you tell yourself you are the “all or nothing” type, you’re merely reaffirming to your brain that that’s how you work. You’ve decided to either abstain or eat everything in front of you. There are no gray areas.

In reality, gray areas are how you go on a vacation without gaining weight, enjoy some birthday cake, or go to a dinner party without being the weird friend who brings their own food. Gray areas help you navigate those trickier times by giving you some allowance to not be “perfect,” while also helping keep you in check so it doesn’t snowball into bingeing or having more than one meal of overdoing it.

Additionally, being in the gray at appropriate times will make life more enjoyable. Because no one wants to be straitlaced all the time, and anyone trying to be healthier will make little progress unless they choose the healthy option more often than the less healthy option. But enjoying yourself when there’s a special event, like Thanksgiving, that only comes once a year, makes life fuller.

Don’t confine yourself to perfect behavior, because you’re setting yourself up for a big letdown when you do go off the rails a bit – and you will.

Allow yourself some padding in this journey to better health and forgive yourself for small enjoyments.

You can also use this visualization: If your car had a flat tire, you’d never say “Let me go slash the other three tires.” That is exactly what “all or nothing” thinking does to sabotage your progress.

If you still find yourself in a place where it’s too late and you’ve given in,

Don’t confine yourself to perfect behavior, because you’re setting yourself up for a big letdown when you do go off the rails a bit – and you will. Allow yourself some padding in this journey to better health and forgive yourself for small enjoyments.

stop as soon as you realize it and recalibrate your thinking and your further choices. Accept what happened and move on. Make the decision right then to change your outlook and perspective.

Your health and wellness are not based on one big decision. It’s based on lots and lots of little decisions. The more times you choose a healthier decision, the less it impacts things when you make an unhealthy one. Every decision you make can get you closer to health, but one

unhealthy decision will not cause you to back step to the beginning.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of WILLIAM BABCOCK aka BILL BABCOCK

A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by STEFANIE M. HERRINGTON, Esq. in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara.

The PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that STEFANIE M. HERRINGTON, Esq. be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court.

THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Inde pendent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to inter ested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administra tion authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

A HEARING on the petition will be held on November 10, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 5 of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara, Anacapa Division, at 1100 Anacapa Street, P.O. Box 21107, Santa Barbara, CA, 93121-1107.

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of a petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.

IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a con tingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representa tive appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the heating date noticed above.

YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

Tek has impacted every aspect of our lives. Education has seen significant im pact – and this will continue. I discovered a prime example of this as I was going through file archives of past work product and came across one particular initiative that inspired me to revisit the topic of technology and education.

When I was living in Hawaii, I was CTO for a company out of Alexandria, Virginia that specialized in training. They had partnered with Samsung to intro duce and promote a new program that Samsung called Samsung Smart School, an initiative that leveraged the diverse technology portfolio of Samsung, the technology savviness of today’s children and the challenge to teach tech savvy kids with traditional tools.

As with most technological advances, it was ahead of its time. This was 10 years ago, and we were still in the tran sition from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0. Cloud computing was just being introduced and shifting to a collaborative, technol ogy-based approach, without violating

Girls Inc. breaks ground on new courtyard

Dozens of people congregated at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria on Thursday, Sept. 29 to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Lynda Fairly Courtyard, marking the official beginning of constriction.

More than 50 people showed up for the groundbreaking, including Carpinteria Unified School District Superintendent Diana Rigby, local philanthropist Lynda Fairly, dozens of children and family members from the Girls Inc. programs and members of Grant Cox Enterprises, which facilitated the design of the courtyard.

Executive Director of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria Jamie Collins, Fairly and a few students from Girls Inc.’s after school programs officially broke ground on the courtyard. The Girls Inc. organization was able to pay for the courtyard following a large donation from Fairly. Kelsey Crouse, a member of Grant Cox Enterprises, designed the plans for the courtyard, and funds were mainly raised through Fairly and the La-Centra Sumerlin Foundation.

student and teacher privacy was more than a little challenging. Samsung went through numerous permutations, trials and iterations. They put the program on hold for a brief period and finally gained traction by targeting the underserved.

In researching the current status of the Samsung Smart School program, I visit ed the Samsung Smart School web site. Samsung states that since 2012, “Samsung Smart School has been supporting schools in rural and remote areas that lack digital educational resources. Since 2016, the pro gram has reached out to various education al institutions, including hospital schools, multicultural schools and special needs schools. Samsung Smart School provides selected institutions with Samsung smart devices as well as tailored future education models and technology solutions to begin a real change in classroom learning.”

The program equips classrooms in underserved communities with “cut ting-edge educational tools,” such as PCs, tablets and electronic blackboards, in over 3,000 such schools.

According to the Samsung website, “Samsung envisions a future of education where even students who live in rural, re mote and isolated areas can interact with other students as well as subject experts around the world to enhance their learn ing, and even students with developmen tal challenges can learn to maximize their capabilities through bespoke education, utilizing digital devices.”

Apple has their Apple School program, while Lenovo, Verizon, Dell, HP and Cisco all have programs designed for schools.

The learning environment is more dy namic than ever before, and as a result, today’s learners are learning in a way that is very different from how our edu cational system was originally designed. With the advancement in technology and the rise of remote learning, classrooms are being remodeled and redefined in a number of ways to fit the evolving needs of modern digital learners.

The pandemic forced schools to look for new ways of teaching and with the adoption of remote learning, many schools and education institutes are sub stituting traditional resources with educa tional technologies in an attempt to keep up with their digital learning population.

I recommend that all schools adopt a student strategy that makes judicious use of technology in and out of the classroom environment to improve engagement and improve student success rates.

In Part 2 I will share the points to consider for including technology in a learning environment.

Progress Report: Rincon’s Surf History

It has been a year and a half since Coastal View News first asked us to create a monthly piece on the surfing history of Rincon Point. What fun it’s been! The project began after Stephen Bates and I committed to writing a photographic history of Rincon Point for Arcadia Press. (Shameless plug: the book publishes later this month.)

Stephen is a tenacious researcher and has the magical Bates name behind him. What would be my contribution? I decid ed to try to do justice to Rincon’s glorious surfing history in the book by beginning to tell the story month-by-month here. The monthly stories seemed a good way to reach out to Rincon’s surfing commu nity, eventually allowing the history to come together.

So far, it’s been a wonderful ride. I’ve been fortunate and honored to meet and interview a tremendous group of Rincon lovers who are both passionate about surfing and extremely knowledgeable about Rincon’s history.

How knowledgeable? They say that Americans’ understanding of history is woeful. But that’s wrong. When it comes to topics we are passionate about, we all have history PhDs. And there’s no pas sion greater than a surfer’s. (Definitely don’t call it a mere hobby.) Many local surfers paddle around with a veritable multivolume encyclopedia of surf his tory in their heads. I’ve been honored to sit down with more than a few of these amateur historians who can easily rattle off a microhistory of Rincon, complete with sidebar digressions on the mostused boards of the day, the relevant surf shops (even if long gone) and much more beyond.

At first, progress was slow. I didn’t know the history, and it’s not (so far – see below) in a single book. Bits and pieces are online but disjointed snippets are not his tory. Progress picked up after I ran across photographs of very early (1951) Rincon surf life taken by surf-retail entrepreneur and living legend Dick Metz. Dick had great Rincon stories to go with his pho tographs (one of which ended up on the cover of our book). His memories from 70 years ago opened for me the bohemian lifestyle centered around area surf spots during a simpler era before Gidget, big brands, shortboards and crowds.

Another early break was Steve Halst ed’s loan of Jason Lumley’s 1957 Rincon

surf album. It documented the popular ity of surfing later in the 1950’s. It (and Steve’s memories) unlocked the story of early Rincon pioneer Ken Kesson and ex citedly referenced a salty and short surfer nicknamed Gidget; the sanitized Gidget debuted only later with the Sandra Dee film of 1959. Thanks to the Lumley album and Dick Metz, a story of Rincon’s early days was emerging. Additional guides were generous with their time. A constant support has been the great Andy Neu mann, who has been on the beach where it happened since 1958.

Other mentors have been former “Surfer” mag editor Matt Warshaw and his monumental online surfing en cyclopedia (, who showed me that careful and systematic recording of surfing’s history is both possible and important. Also influential was Professor Peter Westwick and Peter Neushul’s “The World in the Curl: An Unconventional History of Surfing”, which is a wonder ful effort at connecting surfing’s story to


of 1969 nearby. The hunt for the story be hind several iconic photos allowed me to unlock more Rincon history. The famous 1967 Carp High yearbook photograph led me to Bernie Baker and Jeff Boyd and the stories of departed classmates: Kevin Sears and Bill Wheeler.

Stories yet to tell

Still, we’ve barely scratched the surface of the Point’s glorious surfing history.

Stories left to tell: a decade-by-decade history complete with bios of the day’s dominant surfers and the boards they rode, more stories of early women surf ers, a dive into the days of localism when wave riders in black and muti-colored wetsuits battled for the best waves, more on Rincon’s pre-war surfers and a history of the Santa Barbara County Surf Club and the other local surf clubs.

And of course, there are still more oral histories to take down, especially from those in the “Super Legends” portion of the lineup. All this is a long way of saying that I’ve gotten so hooked on document ing Rincon’s surf history that the project has grown.

Might it be possible, I’ve wondered,

the wider history of post-war California and beyond. (By the way, doesn’t being a researcher in surf history at UC Santa Barbara sound like a dream job?)

Photographs and photographers

Since no one wants to read surf history without surf photographs (our book has many), telling the story in words isn’t enough, you’ve got to have the visuals too. And for an obvious reason most surfers of the past do not have many photographs of themselves: you can’t do both at the same time!

So, I began to meet and interview many of Rincon’s greatest photogs. Among them: Steve Bissell, Don Balch, Bill Rob bins, Jimmy Metyko, Simone Reddingius and others. I’m hoping to add a few more to the list with stories here over the next months. These folks didn’t just have the art and skill to beautifully capture our fa vorite point, they also had the presence of mind to understand they were witnessing important cultural moments.

One example is Metyko, who knew without being told that the Tommy Cur ren/Al Merrick relationship and the great surf of the early 1980s was something spe cial. Steve Bissell has been a tremendous help and friend throughout the project, as modest as he is talented. For proof, see his photograph from the great swell

This Burns and Bates book publishes later this month. The photograph shows surfing friends of Dick Metz in 1951 at Rincon Point. The massive wooden board here is “scarfed” – the front end has been lifted to improve maneuverability – an innovation by design legend Bob Simmons.

to create a true story of Rincon surf that could stand up as real history in the way it’s still sometimes taught at university? And wouldn’t such a history with color photographs be a fitting tribute to Rincon and a blast to write? Sounds like fun to me!

The photographic history of Rincon Point by Vince Burns and Stephen Bates (brilliantly titled “Rincon Point) publishes on Oct. 24. It is available for preorder here: torUO. Ask your local surf shop (or any shop) to stock it. If you have stories or photos about Rincon’s surfing history, get in touch with Vince at

Cate falls to rival Thacher under Friday night lights

Cate’s eight-man football program has been slowly building itself into a pow erhouse over the past few years under head coach Ben Soto, who led the team to its first CIF-SS title last year after a dominant 9-1 season. That one loss, a 4440 heartbreaking thriller that came down to the last minute against their rival 30 minutes away in Ojai, was against the Thacher Toads.

Although Cate dropped its first game this season, the Rams started to find a rhythm with back-to-back wins over Leadership Military Academy and Santa Clara. Heading into last Friday’s matchup, both Cate and Thacher had the same 2-1 record, with both losing to Flintridge Prep earlier in the season.

It was only fitting that the setting for the rivalry – and for Cate’s quest for revenge against the only team to beat them last season – was under the Friday night lights at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium. Cate hosts one game a year at the stadium at Carpinteria High School, giving the chance for the local community to come out and experience the high-action, hard-

hitting and fast-paced play of eight-man football.

Thacher landed the first punch, with a deep touchdown pass on their first possession of the game. Cate answered midway through the second quarter with a 54-yard touchdown run from senior Zaq Asuamah.

Later in the second, with just over 90 seconds left before halftime, junior quarterback Pen Brooks launched a 35-yard pass to fellow junior Tyler Martinez to take the lead for the Rams. Thacher answered right back before the break to take a 16-15 halftime lead.

After halftime, it became a heavy weight fight, with both teams answer ing each score with another of their own. Thacher scored first to take a 22-15 lead, then Cate followed with a scoopand-score fumble recovery, knocked loose by sophomore Quinn Pullen and picked up by junior Kristian Scurtis for the score.

Thacher answered with another running touchdown, after which Cate responded with an eight-yard scramble

by Brooks to take it into the fourth quar ter with the Toads on top 28-27.

Cate made a few mistakes in the fourth, with penalties and stalled drives on offense, while Thacher took posses sion with long drives down the field. With just over four minutes left, Thacher ended a long drive with the last touch down of the night, for a final score of 36-27.

“This was a really hard-hitting game that saw both teams leave it out on the field,” said Cate assistant coach David Soto. “Anytime these two teams play, you can count on a really spirited and well played contest.”

Cate head coach Ben Soto, who knows Carpinteria football well – as former Warrior who played on the same field


under legendary coach Lou Panizzon in the 70’s – said that although the Rams took the loss, the game was great for the program and the community.

“It was a great night for football,” he said. “It was a great game to take in, an exciting back-and-forth contest.”

He said the Rams committed too many penalties, which stalled several drives and took potential points off the board. It could be attributed to the youth of the team – the Rams are starting only two seniors this year – but that youth is also a positive, he said, since these players will be able to develop over the next few seasons.

“Our young team showed a lot of heart and went blow-for-blow with a strong Thacher team,” he said.

Warriors volleyball on a roll for Senior Night

Carpinteria girls volleyball won back-to-back games this week, including a big win at home against Hueneme on Senior Night.

Earlier in the week, the Warriors swept Channel Islands in three straight sets, with coach Greg Novak shuffling a few of the players to new positions with much success.

“Our players did an excellent job adjusting to new positions,” Novak said. “Sophie Olvera and Maya Shelly stepped in on the outside and back row positions to help with the team.”

Carpinteria breezed through the first two sets (25-13, 25-17), but fell behind early in the third. Although the Warriors trailed most of the set, they turned it around, led by senior Ainslee Alexander, who took control with a big kill to take the lead 23-22 before ending the night with a final game-winning kill to seal the victory at 25-22.

Lizbeth Alpizar had a team high five kills in the game, while Ainslee’s younger sister Averi Alexander finished with four kills.

Two days later, Carpinteria hosted Hueneme for Senior Night, celebrating the team’s three seniors: Shelly, Olvera and captain Ainslee Alexander.

Hueneme took the first set (13-25), but the Warriors took over and claimed the next three sets (25-13, 25-23, 25-16) to claim their second league win in a row.

“Overall, the team served really tough tonight, everyone was serving bullets for points,” Novak said. “The team is truly getting better with every practice, and it shows in their performance on the court.”

Carpinteria will host the Fall Classic volleyball tournament this weekend.

Warriors tennis beats Nordhoff, falls to Malibu

Carpinteria’s girls tennis team played their “best overall match of the season so far,” according to head coach Charles Bryant, in a decisive 14-4 Citrus Coast League win over Nordhoff.

“We were really sharp today,” he said. “Everyone stepped up against a dangerous Ranger squad. We did a lot of the little things today that ended up making a differ ence. We were patient when we had to be patient. We were aggressive when we had to be aggressive. We did a good job of minimizing easy mistakes which sometimes plagues us.”

Singles standouts Zahra Porinsh and Silke Leonard both finished 3-0, as did the dominant doubles duo of Charlotte Cooney and Ariana Lounsbury.

Two days later, the Warriors were ready for a rematch against an undefeated Malibu squad that squeaked by Carpinteria earlier this season in a dual match decided by one game.

“Unfortunately, Malibu was more than ready and upped their game to meet our challenge,” Bryant said. “We played well for the most part, but I definitely think we left a few – more than a few – winnable sets out there today.”

The bright spots in the loss were Cooney and Lounsbury, who kept their seasonlong undefeated streak rolling with yet another 3-0 finish, and Porinsh, who finished 2-1 with only one tiebreak loss.

Carpinteria is now 8-5 overall, and 5-2 in the Citrus Coast League.

Congrats to former Warriors

Two former Carpinteria Warriors have made headlines this past week, with former volleyball alumna Heather Olmstead breaking an NCAA Division 1 coaching record at BYU, and track-and-field star Noah Bryant earning a nod in this year’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table (SBART) Hall of Fame.

Olmstead, who was the Warriors girls volleyball MVP in 1997 and had a stellar col lege career at Utah State, has made a splash as head coach of BYU’s women’s volleyball team ever since she was promoted to the position in 2015. Since then, she has earned several top coaching honors – 2015 West Coast Conference Coach of the Year, 2016 American Volleyball Coaches Association South Region Coach of the Year and 2018 American Volleyball Coaches Association Coach of the Year -– while also dominating the West Coast Conference with six league championships in the past seven years.

Last week, Olmstead broke another record, reaching her 200th victory faster than any coach in NCAA history. The win came in a 3-1 win at home against Pepperdine. This year, the Cougars are 11-3 overall and undefeated in conference play.

Bryant – a shot put and ham mer specialist who broke records and reached the 2007 NCAA championships with the Univer sity of Southern California – will be honored as one of seven new members of the SBART Hall of Fame.

The 2022 Hall of Fame Ban quet will be held on Monday, Oct. 17 at the Cabrillo Pavilion Events Center.

Freshman Jamaica Cook medals in golf

Carpinteria’s girls golf team is continuing to grow as a team, and freshman Jamaica Cook has been a bright spot with her third medal performance in a row.

Cook followed up two medalist performances last week with another second-place finish in the team’s dual match against Nordhoff. Cook finished with a team-best score of 47, while senior Elizabeth Delgado Flores was the team’s next best with a score of 57. Freshman Kiana Kiah, sophomore Emily Arismendi and freshman Laureen Partida all finished in the sixties.

Overall, Carpinteria took the win by one stroke with a final score of 268-269.
