BRIEFLY Support group serves adults on autism spectrum

Adults over 18 on the autism spectrum who are looking for support and to make connections with others on a similar journey are invited to join a virtual support group. The virtual autism spectrum disorder (ASD) young adult support group is facilitated by Grant LaVigna, LMFT, and hosted by the Autism Society of Ventura and the New Beginning Counseling Center. Participants will have the opportunity to meet others, share their successes and concerns, to give and receive support, and to be part of a community that understands. For questions and to register, contact Grant at (805) 987-3162, ext. 3 or by email at grantlavignamft@gmail.com. This group will meet virtually every other Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. When Ventura County’s Covid-19 restrictions allow, this group will look towards meeting in person.

County provides free helmets and car seats

The Santa Barbara County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Agency, a branch of the county Public Health Department, was awarded the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Kids’ Plates grant which provided 105 helmets and 32 convertible car seats at no cost to families in need. Car seats and installation will be available at no cost to qualifying families throughout the county. Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will complete the installation and provide parents with education on proper car seat use and adjustment. This is made possible by a partnership with Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Safe Kids, Montecito Fire Department, Lompoc Fire Department and the county Maternal, Child & Adolescent Health Program. Helmets are being distributed through various bike camps conducted by SBBIKE + COAST. All helmets are properly sized and fitted for each child by trained personnel. For more information on this project, where to get helmets and car seats and other ways to keep children safe and active, visit the EMS Agency website.

Three Los Angeles men are being held on a $1 million bail for stealing catalytic converters in Carpinteria.

Three Los Angeles men arrested for catalytic converter thefts

Three suspects were arrested last Thursday for catalytic converter thefts near the 1000 block of Palmetto Way in Carpinteria, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to a report of a theft of a catalytic converter around 2:49 a.m., and located a vehicle that matched the description of the one the suspects were said to be driving. Inside the vehicle, deputies found three men, two catalytic converters, two reciprocating saws and two car jacks. “We would like to thank the community member for calling to report this crime and for providing a vehicle description and direction of travel,” Lieutenant Butch Arnoldi said. “This is a great example of community awareness that resulted in the successful apprehension of suspects who often slip away undetected.” The three suspects – 39-year-old Rufino Garcia-Vasquez, 37-year-old Gustavo Pineda-Duran and 34-year-old Samuel Gallegos-Espinoza – were all identified as Los Angeles residents. All were booked in Santa Barbara County Jail for possession of stolen property, grand theft, conspiracy and possession of burglary tools. Pineda-Duran and Gallegos-Espinoza were also booked on additional charges, for possession of a controlled substance and driving without a license respectively. The three are being held on a $1 million bail.

Planning commission evaluates downtown parking BY RYAN P. CRUZ

The Carpinteria Planning Commission heard a study on downtown parking and the latest on a proposed development on Linden Avenue during its latest meeting on July 6. The downtown parking report was an update based on data collected since August 2019, analyzing parking availability, turnover and providing recommendations to be considered for future projects for which parking needs to be taken into account. The study was provided by Steffen Turoff from Walker Consultants, who presented the findings to the commission. “Parking is often counterintuitive and has a lot of different side effects – transportation, economics, environmental,” Turoff said. “It’s not as simple as we think. It affects the visitors, the customer’s experience, and whether people come back.” The Walker Consultant group found that Carpinteria is in ”good shape” in comparison to other cities of similar size, and the report served to quell some of the concerns from the planning commissioners that some downtown lots did not provide adequate and convenient parking for guests and visitors. “It also took away that inkling in my head that we didn’t have enough parking, or that we were a town overrun with cars,” said Jane Benefield, chair of the Planning Commission. This is the first time the commission has reviewed the report since the April 5 meeting, and Turoff said that though the study is normally concentrated on parking design, the consulting firm included recommendations for future projects. “When we talk about parking in the future, we look at the possibility of future development,” Turoff said. Of the nearly 1,500 designated public parking spaces in town, just over 600 are on-street, while the remainder are offstreet. According to Turoff, on any given day, the average parking time is less than two hours, and on busy days, there are still about 35% of spaces available. “At peak time, 65% of spaces were occupied, very similar to other cities of the same size, meaning about a third of spaces are open on a busy day,” Turoff said. Commissioner David Allen said that Carpinterians need evidence like this to truly understand the status of downtown parking. He also mentioned including short-term parking for curbside pickups and drivers using rideshare or delivery apps like Uber and DoorDash as more

The study included the recommendation to treat each project on a case-by-case basis when it comes to future parking demand on developments like the one proposed at 700 Linden Ave., which was also under discussion during the meeting. The study was approved and will be sent forward to the City Council for further discussion. “I look forward to the parking management plan a lot. And I don’t see that happening soon, so we’re going to have to apply what we do know from the report for the projects that come before us,” Benefield said.

Linden Avenue mixed-use development gets greenlight

The hearing on the newest plans for development on Linden Avenue is part of a project that has been in the works since at least July 2019, when DMHA Architects first showed a proposal to city leadership. The large-scale project would revitalize the 20,000-foot property that makes up the block between 7th and 8th streets that includes the Butler building, former hardware building and “butterfly” building, some of which have been unused for years. The project would renovate the central parking area and convert it into a public plaza to encourage more foot traffic to the businesses, and the newest addition of a second story which would include 10 office suites, a private deck area, a rooftop

Both interior and exterior revisions on the five buildings on the property will provide space for the public and offices, including a new 20-space parking lot along Cactus Lane. A concern raised by Benefield included the plans for loading and delivery to the

businesses, and whether they would add to an already congested area for traffic. “I see a problem with Linden being a delivery system,” she said. Commissioner John Callender brought up concerns for the potential of approving the project and finding problems with some of the buildings that have stood vacant for over a decade in some cases. “The Butler building and the hardware building have been largely vacant for a while,” he said. Aside from this concern, Callendar said that he is looking forward to the project that would update a space that has been in need for years. “I think this project really does demonstrate in a way I think should be a model in how to design a project that is there to serve people,” he said. After much deliberation surrounding details of the design and feasibility of the project being completed as planned, the commission approved the project in a 4-1 vote – with Benefield opposing – with the addition of a condition that would define stricter limits on the design of the buildings.

CITY BEAT Seal Watch, community members urge City Council to create task force for harbor seal protection

Thursday, July 15, 2021  5

Coastal View News • Tel: (805) 684-4428

BY EVELYN SPENCE

At its regular Monday meeting, Carpinteria City Council was urged by Seal Watch volunteers to create a task force to protect Carpinteria’s declining harbor seal population. Data provided at the meeting by city staff showed a decrease in the number of seals in the rookery each year between 2004 and 2021, showing 365 adults and 65 pups in 2004 compared to 220 adults and 64 pups in 2021. This was the first council meeting held in-person since the Covid-19 pandemic began, with the council meeting in person in the council chamber. Attendees were given the option to attend the meeting virtually or in person. The meeting got off to a rough start with technical difficulties – even though the meeting was held both in-person and virtually. Virtual Zoom attendees reported being unable to hear the audio – but it was fixed quickly after a council break. The discussion of the harbor seal population was first brought to the table by Claire Mitchell, who requested at the council’s May 10 meeting that the council discuss possible protections for harbor seals. Mitchell brought up the possibility of a city-led task force to protect the harbor seals and look at the issues surrounding the sanctuary, including issues with the number of people-related disturbances. Currently, Seal Watch is run by volunteers. “The city has been collaborating with volunteers to protect the harbor seals rookery, a really rare and treasured resource here in Carpinteria,” City Manager Dave Durflinger said. “(It is) one of only four central South Coast habitat areas where seals haul out and give birth during the year. It’s an attraction.” Vice Mayor Al Clark, who said he and his wife are members of Seal Watch, suggested the council see if any reasons can be identified as to why the population is

declining and what, if anything, the city can do about it. “We might never get scientific evidence that says, ‘There’s this,’ but we might get suggestions,” he said. Public commenter Susan Mailheau said she is a member of Seal Watch. “People come every single day, and they hurt when they come to see the seals,” she said. “Most tragic of all, they bring their little kids for their only taste of nature (...) but there are no seals in the rookery.” “The seals do not feel protected.” Councilmember Roy Lee asked about the possibility of putting cameras in the area; Seal Watch volunteers said the service in the area near the rookery is unstable and are unsure whether cameras would be logistically possible to use. The matter will be brought back to the council at its Aug. 9 meeting.

Skatepark Foundation is $400k from fundraising goal

The Skatepark Foundation is $400,000 from meeting its fundraising goal to begin construction on the skate park, Skatepark Foundation board members confirmed at the Carpinteria City Council’s Monday night meeting. Foundation board members urged city council members and staff to use their platforms, or start a marketing campaign, to help earn the last leg of funding needed to build the skatepark. “At the end of the day, this is our skatepark. This is your skatepark, this is our future generation’s skatepark,” board member Julia Mayer said. She added that over the last 10 years, community members have raised over $700,000 toward the skatepark. “We’re so close that we can almost throw a skateboard over the fence and hit

it. And because of that, that’s how we’ve gotten to this place. The community is chomping at the bit.” According to documents presented at the city council meeting, construction of the skatepark will take 120 days; if the current timeline is met, the skatepark could be open by spring 2022. The foundation still has to meet its funding goal of $1,450,000. A project architect must also complete a final review of the construction plans, which city documents indicate could be done by the end of July. Contractors must then compete for bids to build the park which documents say are projected to be completed by the end of September, with a contract awarded by city council in October. “(Kids are) dying for somewhere to be where they can be themselves,” Mayer said. Councilmember Lee agreed that “the need for a skatepark is undeniable.”

Ban gas-powered landscape equipment

As stewards of the earth, are we as a city willing to make a change that will contribute to the health of our planet and improve the quality of life for residents of Carpinteria? Gas-powered landscape equipment such as leaf blowers, weed trimmers, hedge trimmers and mowers emit high levels of carbon pollutants that are unhealthy to breathe and are contributing to global warming. The same landscape equipment is also extremely noisy and is disturbing to many of our residents. A quiet day is often disrupted by the blaring sound of a gas-powered leaf blower or other gas-powered landscape equipment in our neighborhoods. Fortunately, there is a solution. Landscape power equipment manufacturers now make high-quality, affordable rechargeable battery-operated landscape equipment for homeowners and professionals that do not release harmful pollutants and are much quieter in use. For the health of our planet, and for the quality of life of the residents in our beautiful beach community, let’s encourage our city council to join approximately 60 other cities in California, including Santa Barbara, who have ordinances that ban or restrict the use of gas-powered landscape equipment in an effort to reduce air and noise pollution.

No on the Bailard Avenue project

The apartment project that the county is planning for the northerly terminus of Bailard Avenue, which involves annexing county farmland to the city of Carpinteria and developing it with approximately 173 apartment units, is a terrible idea for the following reasons: 1. The property consists of two parcels zoned 3-E-1 (Estate Residential), which allows for one dwelling unit per three acres as well as for agricultural uses. It is meant as a buffer to the immediately adjacent agricultural properties. The U.S. Department of Agriculture classifies this land as prime farmland – the very best there is. The only time when unincorporated county land should be annexed to an adjacent city for more intensive development is if the land is not used for farming or is unsuitable for farming. In this case, the subject land is prime farmland and is utilized for organic farming. These parcels were zoned this way for a reason, and that has not changed. 2. The “housing crisis” is not going to be solved by paving over our precious prime farmland. The whole world would like to live here and all of coastal Southern California. Replacing our farmland with high-density apartment complexes will not add a drop in the bucket of endless demand but will only turn our natural productive agricultural land into another concrete jungle. We already have a high percentage of apartment projects in our town. Los Angeles and Orange County were ruined by developers and government agencies paving it all over with high-density projects. You cannot be an environmentalist and support high-density housing on agricultural land. 3. Understanding that the city of Carpinteria is under pressure to meet the state of California’s draconian-imposed allocation credit – which requires more apartment complexes – new housing should be built near the downtown urban area.

Concerns about Surfliner Inn

These are my concerns about the proposed Surfliner Inn and parking changes at the Carpinteria Amtrack Station lot. This is a backward-looking commercial proposal for city-owned property, one that does not preserve nor enhance the small-town character of Carpinteria, adds to traffic problems at the beach and does not consider looming environmental issues. 1. Safety. Moving parking to the ocean side of the tracks will increase automobile and pedestrian interaction in one of the busiest areas of Carpinteria. People and children are walking, riding bicycles and skateboards, walking dogs and pushing baby carriages. There is only room for two automobiles between the tracks and access to the proposed beach. Entering that lot by automobile will result in waiting vehicles in the roadway and traffic backed up over the tracks. Add a train on the tracks, heavy sidewalk use and a pedestrian crosswalk, and you have a dangerous situation. In addition, this is the only automobile egress from the beach area and gridlock congestion at that location will pose a serious hazard in an emergency. 2. Aesthetics. The proposed inn has the look of a two-story strip mall. It is too large and unimaginative and will present a visual and airflow barrier for 5th street residents. The project detracts from the beach cottage area in which it will be located. 3. Environmental impact. Those of us who live here will continue to experience severe drought conditions and rationing. How wise is it to increase water usage in the form of more hotel toilets, showers, dishwashing and laundry while Carpinterians struggle to conserve? We know that more trees need to be planted to offset the impact of extensive overuse of paving. We need to make these changes quickly.

Fight against Bailard housing project

As Carpinterians are confronted again with the prospect of large, unwanted development, now on the agricultural buffer land on Bailard Avenue, I want to recommend former Santa Barbara Mayor Sheila Lodge’s book “Santa Barbara: An Uncommonplace American Town.” The book traces the last 100 years of Santa Barbara’s history and the battles between those who wanted to develop (and profit)

CoastalView.com

by turning Santa Barbara into something similar to most other cities in Southern California and those who sought to preserve our area’s very special beauty and character. Those battles were mostly won thanks to the efforts of private citizens who mobilized to protect Santa Barbara’s small-town character and size, keeping it still a wonderful place to live and to visit. As I read about the issues in Santa Barbara, my mind kept filling in the word Carpinteria because we have had many of the same conflicts and many successes over the years thanks to our concerned and active citizens. Carpinterians have come together over and over again as individuals and in groups – such as the Carpinteria Valley Association and Citizens for the Bluffs – to protect and preserve our precious open spaces, the salt marsh, the bluffs, the beaches and even the ground under us from further drilling. Outside forces and big money don’t care about any of that and always propose as much development as possible, but most Carpinterians want to preserve our small agricultural and beach town where we are happy to live, and where tourists love to visit to escape the urban sprawl and development in their own cities and towns. I urge everyone to speak up, currently on the issue of the proposed development on Bailard, (e.g. by signing the petition at savebailardfarm.com) and to come together yet again to maintain Carpinteria’s own “uncommonplace” character.

Concerns about development

I write this letter to express my concern and dismay for proposed developments in our town, in particular, the Surfliner Inn downtown, the hotel on Via Real, the Green Heron Springs housing off Cravens Lane and the “affordable” family apartments off Bailard. I have lived here for 36 years and have been a Southern California resident for all my life. California is in a severe drought again. No surprise there. This is not going away anytime soon if ever. Why is the impact on our limited resources, especially water, given little if any attention when these types of projects are proposed? Does the city really need 140+ new hotel rooms? Can we really support 200+ new housing units with the resources and infrastructure we have? Does the city need money that badly? I think no. The governor is asking us all to cut down our water use by 15%. Even with water conservation and recycling methods, these projects are going to take up lots of our precious water. A recent edition of Time Magazine (April 25, May 3, 2021) includes a number of articles about designing cities and new building projects with climate change and limited resources in mind. One article described the current approach as the “pursuit of growth without concern for the environmental consequences.” I would add wealth to this. Those words describe what I feel is happening here in Carpinteria. When is “enough” enough?

Gidget was here

Did Gidget surf Rincon? In the July 8 issue of CVN (Vol. 27.42, “Did Gidget surf Rincon Point?”) Vince Burns stated that Gidget, whose real name is Kathy Kohner, did not surf Rincon. Actually, she did! The real Gidget had brunch with my friend and fellow faculty colleague, Connie Corley, a noted radio show host in L.A., at Fielding Graduate University. I texted Connie to ask Kathy right then if she had surfed Rincon. Connie is a long-time friend of Kathy Kohner, who is now 80. Gidget said she indeed did surf Rincon with her friend Miki Dora. In Kathy’s diary, that her father used to write the book “Gidget,” Kathy Kohner wrote: “I went with Miki Dora to Rincon and surfed it.”

Ellen-Irene Montgomery 8/5/1932 – 7/10/2021

Ellen-Irene Montgomery was born in Hilo, Hawaii, on Aug. 5, 1932. She peacefully died in Santa Barbara, California on July 10, 2021, surrounded by loved ones. Raised on a beautiful sugar plantation along Hawaii Island’s Hamakua Coast, she later headed off to Punahou School in Honolulu. She then headed to Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon, and graduated in Home Economics and Business in 1953. She was a proud member of the Lambda Lambda Sigma sorority during those years. Upon graduating, she returned to her beloved Hawaii to begin a career on Kauai with the University of Hawaii. She next headed to Los Angeles to work for the Southern Counties Gas Company and within a year was transferred to Santa Barbara as home service director in 1955. She was often asked to help judge at the local county fairs in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, which she greatly enjoyed. She met Henry Jones in the Santa Barbara Ski Club. They were soon married and began raising three children. Fond memories include spending summers with other local families at the nearby beaches, ski trips to China Peak and camping trips to Yosemite National Park. A woman of faith, she raised her children at Carpinteria Community Church and later became a member of El Montecito Presbyterian Church. In addition to raising her own children, Ellen volunteered with Los Chiquitos, the Carpinteria auxiliary of the Children’s Home Society, and was often found assisting with Girl Scout troop projects. Additional careers she later enjoyed included working in the Trust Department at Crocker National Bank in the 1980s and at the Santa Barbara Chamber

of Commerce Visitor Center on Cabrillo Boulevard in the 1990s. She was so proud of representing and sharing her city with others passing through town. Her many passions included traveling throughout Asia, Europe, Morocco, most of the United States, and returning to Hawaii as often as possible to share her culture with her family. Living for close to 50 years on a hilltop overlooking Santa Barbara’s waterfront, the long-time family home offered many opportunities to garden, grow avocado and citrus trees, enjoy wildlife, and connect with other neighborhood families in a peaceful country setting. She was often found in her kitchen creating wonderful desserts and meals for family and friends, including much of what was growing around her on the property. The holidays were especially enjoyable and celebrated wholeheartedly. Family pets were plentiful and (of course) treated like royalty. Ellen is survived by daughter Leslie Jones (John) of San Luis Obispo; son Ron Jones (Dennis) of Solvang; cousins Roger Hoyer (Tony) and Roy Hoyer (Russell); and family friend Fred Di Pasquale, along with many friends. Ellen was preceded in death by her son Warren Jones, her parents and beloved grandmother, father of her children Henry Jones and many dear friends including Jim and Betty Giusto, Nilo and Rosemarie Fanucchi, Marjorie Boyle, Jack Ostrander, Fritz Amacher, Carl Hamburger, dear friend Tom Edwards and many others. A special thank you to Kathy DeAlba and her many extended family members who were her long-time caregivers in her later years as she transitioned from living at home into assisted living and later to Villa Alamar Memory Care. We are also incredibly grateful for her compassionate doctors, including Dr. Mesipam, Dr. Bourne, the wonderful aides at Villa Riviera Assisted Living (who cared for her for close to two years) and the entire team at Villa Alamar, where she spent her final years. Her hospice care team also offered compassionate care in her final years, and we thank them as well. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Santa Barbara Humane Society, Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network or Santa Barbara Rescue Mission. Mom was a true lover of animals and wildlife as well as someone who cared deeply for those less fortunate. Aloha ‘Oe (Farewell to thee…until we meet again).

Jayne Caldwell 1921 – 2021

Throughout her almost 100 years, Jayne Caldwell exemplified the strength of her generation, the commitment to better times, and you could always count on her interest in people, events and a good story. Born and raised in Beardstown, Illinois, Jayne Craven Caldwell spent her childhood summers with relatives in California. She married her high school sweetheart Robert (Buck) Caldwell in 1940 and after the war, their first home was in Reseda, California. In 1972, Jayne and Buck moved to Carpinteria, where Jayne was quick to embrace the smalltown lifestyle and became involved with the social, educational and cultural life of her community. During her tenure as president of the Friends of the Library, the entire collection of early newspapers was put on microfilm; she also instigated procedures that recognized Carpinteria’s library as the First Branch Library in the state of California. Jayne served as interim curator of the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History and in 1976, headed the Bicentennial Committee of Carpinteria. As a member of the Architectural Review Board in 1980, she organized the Carpinteria Valley Genealogical Society. Her work with this group included indexing the tombstones in the cemetery and researching and authoring two books, “Carpinteria As It Was” and “More About Carpinteria As It Was,” each capturing the essence of the olden days and the achievements of Carpinteria Valley’s pioneers. As a dedicated genealogist, Jayne traveled throughout the United States and many European countries exploring her own ancestry. Completed without

online sites and DNA testing she traced her family back to the Mayflower. Her research uncovered many stories and interesting characters including a distant cousin, Lady Diana Spencer, who became Princess of Wales. Jayne volunteered for the Sylmar and Reseda PTA, Reseda Girl Scouts and Women’s Club. In Carpinteria, she was a supporter of Girls Club (now Girls Inc.) and helped with fundraising, parades, haunted houses and with some of the girls painted local fire hydrants as George and Martha Washington for the 1976 Bicentennial. In 2008, Jayne was recognized as one of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria’s “Women of Inspiration.” For many, Jayne was best known for her weekly column in the Carpinteria Herald. Titled “View from the Bluff,” the column highlighted local activities, personalities and history. She was also employed for 10 years as one of a team of seven West Coast social statisticians for the University of Michigan’s Social Research Center, a role that took her to many different states and diverse communities. Eager to unearth a story, Jayne clipped newspaper articles on medicine, women’s issues, tea and the English royal family. In 1978, she learned that Hampton Court Palace in England claimed to have the largest grapevine in the world, but Jayne knew Carpinteria’s much larger vine, La Vina Grande, planted in 1842 had already claimed that title. To correct this oversight, Jayne arranged for a Resolution from the city of Carpinteria which she carried and presented with a plaque to Hampton Court in recognition of Carpinteria’s earlier World’s Largest Grape Vine. A potluck, yard and craft sale enthusiast, Jayne was a classic American cook, spotted many treasures and could make and sew anything. Her later years were spent reading, enjoying her recollections and keeping in touch with friends. She was one of three remaining alumni at her Beardstown High School 80th reunion and enjoyed the company and help of good friends, Jon Gilliland and Nancy Winfrey, in Camarillo where she lived. She was preceded in death by her husband Buck and her daughter Cathlyn; and she is survived by her daughter Pam DeSollar of Beardstown, Illinois, five grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

Animal shelter not seeing higher return rates due to Covid-19, despite local rumors BY EVELYN SPENCE Santa Barbara Humane is not seeing higher return rates for animals adopted during the Covid-19 pandemic, the shelter confirmed, despite local rumors that residents had been returning pets adopted during the pandemic following the end of quarantine. Dori Villalon, chief operating officer at the Santa Barbara Humane – which has locations in Santa Barbara and Santa Maria and oversees adoptions, vaccinations and spays and neuters – said the operation’s return rate as of June 2021 is 12%, which is “not alarming to us.” She clarified that a “return” means an adopter is returning an animal adopted within the past 30 days; if a pet is returned to the shelter after 30 days, it is considered an “owner surrender.” “We aren’t seeing large numbers of animals returned specifically due to Covid-19 such as people going back to work or losing interest in their pet,” Villalon said. She said the shelter has also heard rumors about people bringing their pets back to shelters in record numbers

post-quarantine, but she emphasized that “our statistics simply don’t support this and informal surveys with colleagues around the county don’t indicate it’s a trend.” “People who adopted during quarantine had a good long time at home with their new pet and likely bonded even stronger than usual,” she said. She explained that in general, adult dogs have the highest rate of return, because it typically takes three to four months for dogs to transition into a family, which sometimes adopters don’t want to wait for. Villalon added that the shelter doesn’t place blame when an adopter returns a pet, stating that it gives the shelter the opportunity to learn more about how an animal does in a home environment. However, she noted that the shelter has seen an increase in owner-surrendered animals but said the reasons people have provided have remained the same: no time to take care of a pet, moving locations or can’t afford to take care of a pet. Another reason the shelter is seeing an increase in owner surrender pets as a whole is because of a change in Santa

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD

Barbara Humane’s policy, Villalon said; the shelter now operates as an open-admission shelter, meaning it doesn’t pre-screen or turn animals away due to health or behavior. Previously, only the Santa Barbara County Animal Services operated at open admission. “Our county-wide safety net program aims to assist owners before they make the decision to give up their pet. We offer discounted or free dog training classes and advice, and low-cost/subsidized veterinary care including wellness care for common medical issues,” Villaron said. “As a result, while our numbers have increased, we’ve also kept countless animals in their current homes, living happier and healthier lives.” She added that for dogs who may be under socialized due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the shelter offers the Confident Canine School of Behavior program at both its campuses. Santa Barbara Humane is located at 5399 Overpass Road in Santa Barbara and at 1687 West Stowell Road in Santa Maria. Learn more at sbhumane.org or by calling (805) 964-4777.

Olmstead is in the driver’s seat for volunteering How long have you been volunteering with Help? I am in my 15th year. I got involved when I became an empty nester in 2006. Once all of my children were gone, I needed something to fill some of the void of that. I saw the Help cars driving around and I like to drive, and I like to help elderly people, so I just went in and offered my services.

CVN

MISSION POSSIBLE LAUREN GRAF Every Thursday, Trudy Olmstead gets behind the wheel of a Help of Carpinteria van to provide free rides to Carpinteria’s citizens who don’t have any other means of transportation. As a driver of Help, Olmstead offers rides to non-driving citizens to reach their doctor’s visits, DMV appointments and more in Santa Barbara. Thursdays are a day she looks forward to – a time for her to help her community and make new friends. Olmstead and her husband came to Carpinteria in 1973 after their college graduations and raised seven children in his hometown, later becoming grandparents to 23 grandchildren. After a life full of volunteering, she has dedicated herself to assisting the riders of Help, as one of her passions in life is serving the elderly. She believes the fact that Carpinteria offers one of the only free driving services for its senior citizens is a sign of how special Carpinteria is. Olmstead has been anticipating the return to Help since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic temporarily halted services, and she is happily returning to her driver’s seat as in-person appointments resume. “I can’t express how happy our riders are now that we’re back helping them,” Olmstead said. “To me, it’s a win-win. The drivers and the volunteers win because of the satisfaction and fulfillment you have from serving others, and the riders win because they have people there to help meet some of the needs that they have.” One of Olmstead’s favorite parts of her volunteer work with Help is the unexpected friendships she has forged with

For 15 years, Trudy Olmstead has volunteered every Thursday as a driver for Help of Carpinteria. her riders. Many of her passengers have no living family or friends, and the highlight of their week is often their doctor’s appointments in Santa Barbara. She also spends time with those who don’t have family in the area. “When riders say they want to go somewhere, to a movie or a play, I say, ‘Just give me a call, I like to go to the movies and plays, so I’ll drive you there,’” Olmstead said. “I’ve gained special friendships through driving riders for Help.”

When in life did you begin volunteering? I have been volunteering as long as I can remember. I was in elementary school when I first started volunteering. We had a school (for people with disabilities) right behind our elementary school, and we were given the option to use our recess and lunchtime to go and assist in that school behind our playground. I started doing that when I was probably in fourth or fifth grade. That was my first recollection of true volunteering. Then I volunteered through high school in the local hospital as a candy striper. And then in college, I was always on some committee here and there for clubs, and it just went on from there. When I had children, I volunteered a lot within our church, and I volunteered at my kids’ schools in parent groups, PTA and as a room mother. It’s always been a part of my life, and I’ve always liked to help elderly people and people with disabilities, so Help fit perfectly in my life.

Do you have any special memories from volunteering? I drive every Thursday and it’s the best day of my week because I have so many riders. Most of them are between 75 to 95 or 100. I have so many memories. Part of why I like to drive is I like to bring some happiness to their life. Sometimes, riding to the doctor is all they’ve done all week, and they haven’t had many conversations, or they live alone. I like to ask riders questions about themselves – what they’ve done – or about their lives. Some riders were raised in Germany or France, or they served in World War II. I hear so many stories that just lift my heart and amaze me about what people have done in their lives that have reached 85, 95. One of my latest memories is that one of the riders got in the car and said to me, “I just sold my car. This is new for me to be riding with Help.” And I said, “Oh, really?” And she says, “I’ve been driving for 88 years.” And I said, “88 years? Wait, how old are you?” And she says, “Oh, I’m 102.” And I’m like, “What?!” And she says, “Yeah, I started driving at 15.” And she had walked out to my car with no cane, no walker and it was just a shocker to me.

Sixth annual Old Town Carpinteria Fiesta to be held next Saturday

This year, low-income families will have increased access to Santa Barbara County museums such as The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation (MOXI) and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UC Santa Barbara.

On July 24, Carpinteria will celebrate its sixth annual Old Town Carpinteria Fiesta, between 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Carpinteria Veterans Memorial Building. Presented by Artesanía para la Familia, the event will be emceed by Carpinteria City Councilmember Natalia Alarcon. This year’s event is sponsored by La Centra Sumerlin Foundation, the Ann Jackson Family Foundation and the Friends of the Carpinteria Library. For more information about the event, call (805) 617-5929 or visit friendsoftheibrary.org.

Museums offer free and reduced entry to lowincome families

Within Santa Barbara County, 18 museums have joined Museum for All, a program that aims to increase low-income families’ access to museums. The program offers those who receive CalFresh/SNAP benefits admission to all 18 museums for $0 to $3 per person, for up to four people, upon presentation of a SNAP card. The program was first created in 2014 in a nationwide initiative that now has over 700 member institutions. Participating Santa Barbara County museums include: Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara; Casa del Herrero; Dunes Center; Elverhoj Museum; Goleta Valley Historical Society; Lompoc Museum; Ganna Walska Lotusland; The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation (MOXI); Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara; Museum of Sensory & Movement Experiences; Old Mission Santa Barbara; Santa Barbara Botanic Garden; Santa Barbara Historical Museum; Santa Barbara Maritime Museum; Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History & Sea Center; Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation; Santa Barbara Zoo; and Wilding Museum of Art & Nature. “We all want our museums and institutions to be inclusive and to be places where all in our community feel welcome. We know there are certain people who, for a variety of reasons, don’t choose to visit museums,” Robin Gose, president and CEO of MOXI, said. “This county-wide embrace of the Museums for All program is an important step in removing a barrier to attendance. We hope that by offering free or reduced admission, we are eliminating financial reasons for not visiting. For MOXI, it is especially important to offer equitable access to families with children because every child deserves the same opportunities to learn and thrive by having fun learning experiences outside the home or classroom.” Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History President and CEO Luke Swetland said that the collaboration between museums and Museum for All “activates the transformative power of the county’s museums and culture institutions.” “For those among us who are most economically challenged, these needs are acute and urgent, though too often ignored or sidelined. The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is proud and humble to be a part of this effort to raise all of us up together,” he said.

Teen volunteers celebrate meeting the Arts Center’s $120,000 goal.

Carpinteria Arts Center meets fundraising goal

The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center met its spring fundraising goal, matching the $60,000 anonymous donor pledge for a total of $120,000 for the center. “We would like to thank the community for helping us reach our milestone goal, and we look forward to seeing more of the community in the coming weeks,” executive director Linda Rosso said. The center held a number of activities to meet its fundraising goals over the past several months, including a virtual silent auction, “Together Again” events in the Koch Courtyard, a free community event and an opening reception for the new Charles Lo Bue Gallery. The center is located at 855 Linden Ave. in Carpinteria and can be reached at (805) 684-7789 or at carpinteriaartscenter.org.

DUNCAN’S REEL DEAL M AT T D U N C A N

“Luca”

Turns out sea monsters are afraid of humans. Fair enough. Humans don’t have a great track record. Especially with things they don’t understand. Or that they’re afraid of. I’d be afraid of them too, if I were a sea monster. Anyway, rational or not, that’s the psychology of the sea monsters in Pixar’s new movie, “Luca.” The rules of their underwater domain say stay in the underwater domain. Don’t go up. Don’t show yourself. Hide. Conceal your identity. Luca (Jacob Tremblay) isn’t listening though. He’s not a bad little sea monster. He’s just curious. He lives off the coast of a quaint little Italian village, and, while he is a bit shy and timid, he can’t help but sneak a peek of the wonders above. And he’s not alone. One day when he’s close enough to the surface to make his parents cringe, he meets fellow sea monster, Alberto (Jack Dylan Grazer). Alberto doesn’t have much family to keep him in check – he just says his dad isn’t around much – and he’s every bit as curious and three times as bold as Luca. Also, Alberto knows a secret: If sea monsters go onto dry land, they don’t just flop around like fish out of water, gasping for oxygen through their gills; rather, they turn into humans – breathing, walking, talking humans. At first when Alberto shares this secret with Luca, Luca is characteristically timid and reluctant. But he’s also curious. And he’s drawn to Alberto like a magnet. So Alberto offers a solution. He calls Luca’s

inner scaredy-cat “Bruno,” and teaches Luca his mantra: “Silenzio Bruno!” And thus, Bruno is silenced. Luca and Alberto’s relationship is strengthened every day as they explore the terrestrial world. But Luca’s parents are a bit of a complication, so the pair formulate a plan to run off together on a Vespa. But they need a Vespa. Which isn’t cheap. Yet, ah ha, they catch wind of the Portorosso Cup Race – a triathlon of swimming, biking and pasta-eating – that has a cash prize. As they inquire further, they’re quickly introduced to the local scene. There’s Ercole Visconti (Saverio Raimondo), an arrogant, goodfor-nothing jerk who, yeah, fine, always wins the race. Then there’s Giulia Marcovaldo (Emma Berman), a young girl who always loses the race but is nice in her own way and befriends Luca and Alberto. After some negotiation, she agrees to add Luca and Alberto to her triathlon team. So they have a team! With two sea monsters on a competition that involves swimming, you’d think things would be looking up. But remember, when Luca and Alberto go into the water, they turn back

into sea monsters – and they can’t let that cat out of the bag. They have to figure out some other arrangement to beat Ercole. And everyone else. Without letting on that they’re monsters. Or being found by their parents. Silenzio Bruno, Silenzio Bruno . . . “Luca” is sweet. Nothing groundbreaking. It’s just sweet. The relationship between Luca and Alberto is nice, it’s good, it’s warm. It’s complicated by the plot they weave themselves into, but, in other ways, it’s simple, pure. Add that to a beautifully composed film, set in a beautiful location and we’re off to the races. This is not a very ambitious film. The themes of identity, shame and self-confidence are immediately evident and never strained too hard with divisive political overtures. Some may balk at that, wishing for more. But I say it’s for the best. “Luca” is simple. It won’t knock your socks off. But after a year-plus of drama, it feels kind of nice to just chill by the beach with a friend. “Luca” is rated PG for rude humor, language, some thematic elements and brief violence. Matt Duncan, a former Coastal View News editor, has taken physical but not emotional leave from Carpinteria to be a philosophy professor at Rhode Island College.

Then one of us asked the question that started out as something to ponder, grew into annoyance and finished with the four of us highly irritated. Why doesn’t the United States have a holiday honoring important woman? Over the years we have honored Christopher Columbus, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King Jr. We have altered our enthusiasm for at least one of these men, but still fail to consider the importance of honoring even one woman. If you aren’t irritated yet by this issue, let me push more buttons. The powers that be in the U.S. also honored “men” by putting their faces on our money. Let me enlighten you: Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Franklin Roosevelt, William McKinley, Grover Cleveland, James Madison, Salmon Chase and Woodrow Wilson are all on coins or bills or both. (If you know who Salmon Chase was, likely you are a history professor.) To be fair, Sacagawea was honored on a coin, but it is rarely seen anymore. Also, Susan B. Anthony was minted on a silver dollar, but this coin was never in wide circulation. It is rumored that Harriet Tubman will be on a $20 bill in 2028. I say too little, too late. The more research I did, the angrier I got. In New York City’s Central Park there are 22 statues honoring men, several statues of fictional women (Mother Goose, Alice in Wonderland and Juliet), but no statues honoring remarkable women. In August of 2020, the powers that be did install a statue that included the likenesses of Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It is the first sculpture in Central Park to depict historical women. In 1987, National Women’s History Month was proclaimed and is celebrated in March. But I still think we need to have a national holiday here in the United States (besides Mother’s Day) named

after a woman. Actually, on Feb. 11, 2011, a representative of New York introduced the Susan B. Anthony Birthday Act to honor her birthday as a U.S. national holiday. It died in committee. So where do we go from here? Let’s pretend we had the power to proclaim a holiday honoring a remarkable woman. How would we select this person? Would she have to have lived in the United States? Would she have to be dead? Would she have to be a citizen? The following rules seem the most sensible to me, but I can probably be persuaded by somebody smarter than I am (or nicer). I feel this noteworthy woman should be deceased, should have lived in the United States for a long period of time, and should be someone the women of today – and men – can look up to, emulate and learn from. Bottom line here is, “Whom would you pick?” When I asked my lunch friends to select their favorite women, here is the list of their choices. (Please understand this list is in random order and some are still living.) Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Ida B. Wells, Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt, Althea Gibson, Sally Ride, Margaret Sangar, Sandra Day O’Connor, Julia Child, Jane Goodall, Madam C.J. Walker, Oprah Winfrey, Madeleine Albright, Clara Barton, Abigail Adams, Amelia Earhart, Sonia Sotomayer, Grace Hopper, Shirley Chisholm, Sojourner Truth, Barbara Jordan. If you have a woman you think deserves to be added to our list, please let me know by sending in your choice or choices editor@coastalview.com. And when you are vacationing in the U.S. over the new holiday weekend that honors a remarkable woman, look around for all those statues of women of distinction, and check out all those dollar bills or fives or tens that now have a woman’s face showing as you pay your bill. Progress, I hope, is soon to be made. Melinda Wittwer first moved to Carpinteria in 1972 and taught mostly junior high students in Oxnard during her 25-year career. Now retired, she enjoys pottery, writing, books and travel.

PLAYING IT BY EAR Music has myriad benefits, but perhaps its highest purpose is sparking joy. In times of isolation and uncertainly, like, say a global pandemic, that joy delivered by guitar strings, drum beats, and even over Zoom lessons became more precious than ever.

F R A N D AV I S Discarded masks loop from twigs, catch in drains, press mouths to grass. My litter-conscious husband recently stooped to pick one up, halting when I yelled at him. I was thinking of those molecules of breath caught in the fabric. Alien litter, as untouchable as dry ice. Released from our sequestration, we are as cautious as deer in hunting season. Wear a mask or don’t? Not necessary if you’ve been vaccinated, but sharing enclosed spaces continues to pose a danger. Or does it? Advice is all over the place. The Curves gym that I’ve gone back to asks you to please wear a mask if you’re unvaccinated. And gloves for all. Most of the women go unmasked. Which worries me. I know people who have refused the vaccine. And I suspect some of them, out of arrogance or ignorance, go around unmasked. There’s the new Covid-19 variant to worry about, so much more contagious than the one we’ve been vaccinated against. Word is the vaccines are still pretty protective against the Delta variant, but maybe not quite as much? I heard that Pfizer may be asking for a go-ahead on a third booster shot. This virus is wily, and we still have a lot to learn about it. I know of two people who caught Covid-19 after being vaccinated. They suffered mild cases, but any case of Covid-19 is worrisome. Too many horror stories about the long hauler syndrome, how the virus can return in devious forms – causing brain fog, extreme fatigue and heart problems. We want this thing gone. As obliterated as polio and smallpox. We want our lives back. We want freely given hugs and days at the beach. We want normalcy. But what was normal before is no longer available. A year of lockdown delivered a sucker punch to businesses we liked, cafes we loved, theaters, museums and markets. Suddenly and inexplicably gone, they leave gaps that may never be filled. Such a tough term – lockdown. It’s what they do in prisons when trouble erupts. This year of extreme isolation stressed many to the breaking point. Several of my friends got sicker and not from Covid-19. Worn down, hopeless and fearful, cut off from loved ones, exercise and restorative routines, they/we all became more vulnerable. So we gather again with a degree of

“Released from our sequestration, we are as cautious as deer in hunting season. Wear a mask or don’t?”

caution. The vaccine has conferred an assurance of safety. We are a communal people, and we are hopeful. We want our children to grow up fearless even after we’ve spent a long “winter” fearing for our very lives. We will go back to celebrating birthdays and weddings and reunions of all kinds because we haven’t forgotten how those things make our hearts glad and our souls bigger. I’m grateful for the return of farmers markets just in time for fruit season. I miss the sweet market on Linden Avenue, but the one I go to now in the Camino Real marketplace is joyfully satisfying, right down to the fresh baked goods from a bakery in Fillmore. That market is where I ran into my old friend Rodney Chow who had copies of his book “American as Apple Pie” for sale at his booth. I wrote a piece on Rodney and his apple farm for Carpinteria Magazine a few years ago. Now in his 90s, Rodney has been working on his autobiography for a few years. “American as Apple Pie” is his love song to the country of his birth, an America that challenged him as an Asian at every turn, even though his family (early workers on the railroad) had been in this country almost 200 years. Raised in Los Angeles’ Chinatown, Rodney served in the military during the Korean War, worked his way through school to become a civil engineer, taught college classes, became a land developer, had a family and finally retired in Carpinteria to become a farmer. Reading the book, I realized what a thoughtful observer Rodney was throughout his life, garnering lessons from every situation. Witnessing the Watt’s riots helped him “become more tolerant,” he says. “America was slowly awakening and realizing that perhaps our purpose on earth is to learn that all human beings have feelings and rights, and we must not let greed overcome good behavior towards each other.”

THROWBACK

Before it became a parking lot

The Daylight train headed for Los Angeles chugs through the Carpinteria station in 1954. Carpinteria saw its first train come to town on Aug. 19, 1887. In the early days of train service, a tug on the cord prompted the engineer to stop anywhere along the route. Pick ups happened along the way too. In “Carpinteria as it Was,” Jayne Craven Caldwell quoted Ed Braley as saying, “You could go to any main crossroad at the railroad tracks, hold up your hand as a signal and the local train running between Santa Barbara and Oxnard would stop for you.” To learn more about Carpinteria history, visit the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History’s website carpinteriahistoricalmuseum.org to access more articles on local history. To support the preservation of local history, consider becoming a member of the Carpinteria Historical Society.

Open competition heptathlon and decathlon hosted at Carpinteria High BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium hosted the second weekend of “All Comer” track and field events on Saturday and Sunday, drawing competitors from all over for a heptathlon and decathlon. The two days of events followed the first “All Comers” track meet held the previous week and is designed to encourage competition among all age groups, especially for former athletes who don’t have many opportunities to compete in organized events. “The heptathlon/decathlon was a low key but competitive event,” said Carpinteria track and field coach Van Latham, who helped organize the event. “The top two in the decathlon were both Stanford track team members; neither had done a decathlon before and thought it would be fun to try out.” Miles Zoltak is a Thousand Oaks graduate and is currently the top 400-meter runner on Stanford’s track and field team. His teammate, Stanford’s best long jumper Allan Hunter, joined Zoltak and drove

to Carpinteria to participate in the two-day, 10 event competitions. In addition to the two Stanford athletes, the meet drew Oaks Christian senior Thomas Kephart, Oscar Zuniga from Moorpark College, Carpinteria High School junior Ariana Lounsbury and a group of former Westmont athletes who competed in the heptathlon. Former Westmont All-American 400-meter runner and San Marcos High coach Elysia Mitchell came up big, winning the women’s portion of the heptathlon while competing pregnant with her second child. Westmont graduate and coach of Providence High School, Evan Covell was the overall high point scorer. His wife Sarai Covell and former Westmont heptathlete Caitlin Smith were the other Westmont alums in the group. Zoltak, Hunter and Kephart were the top three in points for the decathlon, with the Stanford teammates showing impressive scores in all categories.

SHORT STOPS

The 1987 film featured the “Bones Brigade”, a legendary skate team which included Tony Hawk and Steve Caballero, and was produced by local skate company Powell Peralta. It was shown on the big screen as a way to celebrate both skate history and future in Carpinteria. The Alcazar hosted the screening, which was organized by members of the Carpinteria Skate Foundation and included the support of local skate shops Powell Peralta and Lighthouse. A “Best Bones Brigade Trick” contest encouraged both young groms and older skaters to show off their versions of classic 80s maneuvers – from foot plants to handstands to flat ground tricks and boneless ollies. The skatepark is expected to begin construction at the location near City Hall sometime in the fall, and has earned tremendous support from community members, businesses and leaders.

Cate girls lacrosse player makes all-CIF Southern Section team

ROSANA SWING

Cate School senior Lilly Riehl was selected for the Division 2 2020-21 Girls Lacrosse All- CIF team after completing her career as a four-year player for the Rams. Riehl led the Rams to a 7-2 season and a second-place finish in the Channel League. She was the school’s star athlete for the sport, scoring more than five goals in multiple games during her career, including a show stopping 10-goal performance against San Marcos. Riehl was the only player selected from area schools in Division 2.

Carpinteria football is set to play a full 10-game schedule in 2021-2022, after a season with only two games and a limited roster due to the pandemic.

Athletes get ready to return to the “new normal” BY RYAN P. CRUZ

After a year of uncertainty, restrictions and cancelations, Carpinteria High School is looking forward to a full slate of athletics as the fall approaches and programs try to recover from their losses. “Fall programs are cranking up,” said athletic director Pat Cooney. “Footballers and cheerleaders are so eager to enjoy a normal Friday night under the lights of Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium.” He said that the community needs to hear the band, smell the smoke of the Carpinteria High School Boosters’ tri-tip sandwiches and “unleash some real school spirit.” Many of the programs experienced games – or even entire seasons – being canceled out of an abundance of caution due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now that restrictions have been lifted and teams are free to practice almost as freely as they did in years before, athletes and coaches are all ready to get back into the action. “Water polo players are already logging time in the pool, cross country runners are regaining their post-Covid forms and tennis players are working individually and with the community on expanding their skills,” Cooney said. As it stands now, all sports have the expectation that programming will return to their previous practice and game schedules with some necessary adjustments. However, Covid-19 has had far reaching impacts. “We were lucky to offer 16 programs under state, county and (Carpinteria Unified School District) guidance last year. The Warriors will be even luckier to return to the ‘new normal’ this year,” Cooney said. Cooney said that the repercussions of the last year will not be overcome right away, as rosters were depleted across the board and many multi-sport student-athletes were forced to choose one sport. In some cases, there were only enough athletes to field a Varsity team instead of the usual Frosh/Soph and Junior Varsity levels as well. “Carpinteria High School Athletics will be on the rebound from Covid for some time,” Cooney said. “It might take years to fully recover. It remains to be seen if the recovery will include a swing back towards full multi-sport program strength or if student athletes will continue to choose to limit themselves.” Another variable is how many incoming ninth graders will be signing up for athletics; since physical visits were limited, so many students were unable to check out the program offerings at the school. Cooney said that it’s hard to tell whether these students will reach out to programs and sign up in the numbers they have previously. “In other words, it’s too soon to tell how quickly our roster numbers will rebound,” he said.

Classic skate film screening at Alcazar raises money for skatepark

The summer of fundraising events continued with a screening of the classic skate film “The Search for Animal Chin” at Alcazar Theatre on Monday. Proceeds from ticket sales and a raffle went towards the new Carpinteria Skatepark.

Junior Guards for this week are, top row from left, Ainslee Alexander, Sebastian Chisum, Abby Gobbel and Sebastian Campuzano; bottom row from left, Hazel Dugré and Kyler Bryan.

Carpinteria’s Junior Guards of the Week

After each week of the summer program, leaders in Carpinteria’s Junior Lifeguards program select six participants who embody the spirit of the guard and show great sportsmanship and attitude. These Guards of the Week are the “best on the beach” in Carpinteria. Ainslee Alexander is described by program coordinator Leilanie Silva as “an amazing athlete” who helps set the pace each day for the rest of the junior guards. “All the instructors know that no matter the workout, she will put in all the effort with a smile on her face,” Silva said. Ainslee has great sportsmanship, athleticism and a great attitude, Silva said. “I can tell she inspires all the junior guards.” Sebastian Chisum was chosen for his endurance and ability to push through tough workouts. “Over the past two weeks, Sebastian has shown such strong determination to push himself to his own personal limits,” Silva said. “No matter the circumstance, he continues to prove his full dedication to becoming an even better junior guard, and we look forward to seeing him strive throughout the rest of the summer. “ Newcomer to the program Abby Gobbell demonstrated great perseverance since her arrival, and instructors said she has proven to be extremely resilient and a great addition to the group. “We are very excited to see Abby continue to push herself and grow as an athlete over the next month,” Silva said. Sebastian Campuzano displayed a great attitude and has shown his best effort all summer, said Silva, who noted that he is constantly encouraging his fellow junior guards and is a “great team player,” in addition to consistently being one of the first kids to finish workouts. “Sebastian is a great kid and is one of the best junior guards,” Silva said. Hazel Dugre is considered an outstanding athlete who has been a leader of the pack in all activities this summer. “Not only is Hazel an amazing swimmer and runner, she is a team player who encourages her teammates and always has a positive attitude,” Silva said. Kyler Bryan is a great example to all his teammates, Silva said. He is one of the junior guards who gets everything done with a smile and is always ready for the next activity. “He is an outstanding athlete, a great listener and always comes out on top,” she said.
