Local cannabis growers fight holiday hunger

For the third year, The Farmacy of Santa Barbara and CARP Growers are teaming up to raise funds through “Grass Roots,” a holiday fundraiser kicking back 5% on purchases of select local products through the end of the year. The beneficiary of the 2021 Holiday Grass Roots Fundraiser will be The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, serving 1-in-4 local residents through 300 programs and partnerships across the county. When customers at The Farmacy select Autumn Brands, Pacific Stone Brand or Glass House Farms – all grown in Carpinteria and CARP Growers member farms – their choice of local cannabis will support a local cause. “Our customers have responded in a huge way to supporting nonprofits like The Foodbank by choosing locally grown cannabis. We’re happy to be able to partner with local Santa Barbara brands to support the Santa Barbara community,” said Graham Farrar, founder of The Farmacy of Santa Barbara and Glass House Farms in Carpinteria. “We love making the connection between the dispensary, our customers and the quality cannabis farmed just 15 miles down the coast.” Farrar is a past president of CARP Growers and currently sits on the Board of Directors. The Farmacy and CARP Growers members collaborated last year during the holidays to raise over $10,000 for Freedom Warming Centers of Santa Barbara County. Through the end of 2021, upon purchase of a CARP Growers-certified product at The Farmacy, 5% of the purchase price will be automatically donated to The Foodbank.

Fire responds to rollover by railroad tracks

The Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Department responded to a report of a truck rollover near the railroad tracks in Summerland at noon on Tuesday. According to Fire Marshal Rob Rappaport, a vehicle went over the side of Highway 101 southbound near the Summerland exit. “The Chevy Silverado truck rolled multiple times down the steep embankment and rested next to the railroad tracks,” Rappaport said. The car held a family of five – three teenagers and two female adults – who were treated at the scene before they were transported to Cottage Hospital. The railroad was shut down until the vehicle was cleared from the area. CHP is investigating the cause of the accident.

Smuggling boat washes up at Rincon

A smuggling boat washed up on the Ventura County side of Rincon Coast near the Mobil Oil piers last week, according to a report from John Palminteri of KEYT. Sixteen empty life jackets were onboard, said Palminteri. Crews with the Ventura County Fire said no people or drugs were spotted in the area. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said the 16 passengers likely hiked up to the road to be picked up by a waiting vehicle, said KEYT.

Carpinteria cannabis farm appeal denied 5-0 by County Supervisors

A cannabis farm project on Foothill Road proposed by Cresco Labs won the approval of the Santa Barbara County Supervisors by a 5-0 vote at an appeal hearing on Dec. 7. Cannabis cultivation at the property, 3889 Foothill Road, has been ongoing in a legal nonconforming capacity, and Cresco originally submitted its land use application three years ago on Dec. 6, 2018. The Board of Supervisors approval will permit a total of 7.98 acres of cannabis farming activity at the site: 6.07 acres of mature plants, 1.34 acres of nursery and .057 acres of processing. Three greenhouses will be removed in order to erect a purpose-built processing building, resulting in an overall reduction to the structural footprint at the property. Appellant Maureen Claffey contended that the project would harm sensitive habitat on Arroyo Paredon Creek and that the greenhouse should be sealed in order to effectively use carbon filtration for odor abatement. County staff recommended denying the appeal. During discussion, supervisors noted that the project set a high bar for other local cannabis projects. The project includes native riparian plantings along the creek to mitigate historical uses, native landscaping for beautification along Foothill Road, expanded retention basins to prevent runoff and carbon scrubbers to be phased in for odor abatement. The main entrance for up to 75 employees will be changed from Foothill Road to Via Real.

May this season bring joy, love and blessings to you and your family. Happy Holidays from your friends at MB&T.

Heath Ranch Park playground is underway

Carpinteria kids will soon enjoy a new playground at Heath Ranch Park. Removal of the existing play equipment is now underway, and construction of the new playground will take place over the next few weeks. The new play structure will be located northwest of the existing structure to distance it from the century-old eucalyptus trees on the historic property. The area designated for the existing playground will be converted into a native plant garden. During playground construction, the play area will be closed.

Santa Barbara County Covid-19 statistics as of Dec. 3.

County extends indoor mask mandate to Jan. 2

Late last week, Santa Barbara County extended the indoor face masking covering mandate, due to the “substantial” community transmission level the county is facing. This order applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, and requires that face coverings be worn in all indoor public places. The order expires on Jan. 2 at 5 p.m., unless it is extended or rescinded. As of Dec. 2, the county reported 12.6 cases per 100,000 residents, with a test positivity rate of 8.2%. To rescind the indoor mask mandate, the county case rate

needs to be at 7.0 per 100,000 or lower for three consecutive weeks. “As we head into the winter season once again, we are in a very different place than we were last year,” Dr. Henning Ansorg, County Health Officer, said in a press release. “We have vaccines available for everyone 5+ years of age and boosters for those who were vaccinated earlier this year. We know very well that wearing a face covering while indoors is an effective strategy to reduce transmission in the community. We have yet to see the full role the Omicron variant will play in this pandemic, but we have well established surveillance and prevention strategies in place.” Violations of the order can result in a misdemeanor fine of up to $1,000, imprisonment, or both. The California Department of Public

Health released a fact sheet on the new variant, the Omicron variant, noting that new variants will “continue to evolve as long as there are large proportions of unvaccinated people.” The first known case of the Omicron variant was identified on Nov. 9 in South Africa, with the World Health Organization designating it as a “variant of concern” on Nov. 26. The first case was detected in the U.S. – in California – on Dec. 1. “This new variant has many mutations in important areas of the virus that impact infectiousness and the ability for immune systems to protect from infection. Some of the mutations are concerning to scientists because they are very different from other variants previously detected, and some are similar,” the department wrote in a release. “We do not know at

this time if this new variant causes more severe COVID-19 illness than other variants or how it might impact response to treatment.” The department also said that current PCR and antigen tests available should detect the Omicron variant. The department is monitoring for the variant in California, and is increasing Covid-19 test at airports for U.S. citizens and legal residents returning from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi. Travelers from these areas should test for Covid-19 within three to five days after arriving back to the U.S., quarantine for seven days and isolate if they develop Covid-19 symptoms. The department encouraged Californians to get vaccinated and wear masks in public. Under current recommendations, the department recommends that everyone wear a mask in indoor public places, regardless of vaccination status. During the week of Nov. 26 through Dec. 2, there were 331 new cases reported, for 297 active cases and 45,821 total cases. There were six new deaths reported, bringing the total number of Covid-19 deaths to 549. The majority of cases during that week were seen in the 30-49 age group, at 121 cases, followed by the 0-17 age group at 74 cases. There were 33 reported hospitalizations due to Covid-19, with nine in the ICU. In the prior week, between Nov. 27 and Nov. 23, the majority of cases continue to be reported among unvaccinated populations. Among the unvaccinated, 247 cases were reported, compared to 64 in the vaccination population. As of Dec. 6, 62.8% of Santa Barbara County residents are fully vaccinated, compared to 66.8% of eligible county residents, bringing up the total number of doses administered to 652,516. The county also reminds residents to get their flu shots, which are available throughout the county. To learn where to get vaccinated for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/ vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/testing. For more information from the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, call 211 and press #4 or email the county at PHDDOC.

In Carpinteria, construction crews place continuously reinforced pavement. At the Sheffield Drive interchange, crews focus on the bridge span for the new bridge on the northbound side. At the Evans Avenue Undercrossing, work continues on retaining walls for the new bridge improvements. At the Padaro segment – between North Padaro Lane and Santa Claus Lane – crews work on the entrances for both bridges, Arroyo Parido and Toro Creek. They are also focusing on the retaining

walls in the area. At the Santa Claus Lane and South Padaro Lane interchange, work continues on the underside of the new bridge.

Wish for a Senior Center

CVN

I have a wish for the new year that I hope you can share. I’d love to see a Carpinteria Senior/Community Center! It could be a gathering place where you can stop in and have a cup of coffee, chit chat, read the paper, or more – a place to enjoy a game of Scrabble, bingo, bridge or mahjong, a place to knit, crochet or learn. Simply put, I want a central meeting spot that is welcoming of residents. I have been working with the city in an attempt to get this project off the ground. City personnel seem to be in favor, but to date, nothing has happened. In our travels, I’ve seen these centers in cities both large and small, wealthy and not, and it was wonderful. If you think that we deserve to have a Carpinteria senior/ community center to serve our community, please let your voices of support be heard.

Rent control statement clarified

In my letter to CVN (Vol. 28, No. 9), I made a mistake. At the time I wrote it, I didn’t know that all the tenants at Sandpiper are under rent control. The only difference is that 60% of the tenants have “locked” rent until the end of next year. The mobile home parks were destined for low-income people; right now, they are affordable for some. For some time now in the U.S., big corporations have been buying well-maintained mobile home parks to get big returns on their investments. That’s what happened

giving the vaccines to children older than five years old. We simply do not know what the long-term effects will be. It is one thing to vaccinate adults, but children and adolescents have their whole lives ahead of them. What about the people who have already had Covid? They have stronger and longer immunity than from the vaccines. Why are they being forced to get the “jab”? It does not make sense. Finally, I do believe some people have religious reasons to not get vaccinated. Those reasons should be honored. Going forward, as a nation, we need to have a transparent, common-sense discussion about all things Covid, without government indoctrination. Our first priority should be “do no harm.” A second priority is truth. Otherwise, the public’s confidence in vaccine programs and the medical establishment will drop like a rock.

with Sandpiper – they paid a very high price for the park, but the property taxes are also high. Now, they want to change how they pay property taxes based on the county’s new assessment. They don’t see it as their taxes, but ours; they want us, the tenants, to pay the increase. The law allows this, but it doesn’t say whether they can pass on the whole amount or part of it. The propositions the company gave tenants scared and confused some of the tenants. I don’t think we should have to pay the whole increase. I hope the rent stabilization board will fight for us and show the new developers that they are not going to get everything that they want.

Is forcing everyone to get Covid-19 vaccines a good or bad idea? I am in favor of Covid-19 vaccines, especially for seniors and adults who have serious medical issues. However, I believe it should be an individual choice. Is forcing everyone to get the shots appropriate, constitutional or wise? For starters, I worry about

Delia Campos 9/21/1930 - 11/26/2021

O n F r i d a y, Nov. 26, 2021, Delia Ruan Campos passed peacefully into the arms of the Lord at the age of 91. She was born in Herreras, Durango, Mexico, to Aurora and Pedro Ruan (Ruano). She grew up in Santiago Papasquiaro and recalled an idyllic childhood. Her father and mother owned a retail business, and her father served as the township’s local judge. She would attend the Instituto Juarez in the City of Durango. A change in circumstances prompted the family to move their lives and business to Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. The Ruan sisters, all five, would find their way to the Alta California. Delia moved to the U.S. at the age of 16. Upon arrival, she began working for the Goleta Lemon Association packinghouse where she caught the eye of photographers working for an agricultural trade publication. They took pictures of her picking, sorting and washing lemons, the journey of the lemon so to speak, on its way out of a packinghouse. Little did she know that one of the photos would become, in time, iconic to Santa Barbara County’s agricultural history appearing on postcards, posters and the local newspapers come each Fiesta, and especially the Goleta Lemon Festival. In 2001, it was chosen as the main image for the Goleta Community Heritage Project appearing in all of their publications. To this day, the

picture still hangs at the Stow House and The Old Town Coffee House in Goleta. Delia met the love of her life, Salvador Campos, at a local dance. They were married and raised five children in Carpinteria. Active in the St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, she assisted Father Roughan in administering communion to the sick in their homes, leading rosaries, making some of the best enchiladas for the Catholic carnival for years, having priests and seminarians over for dinner and even giving one of them regular haircuts! Compassionate, Delia always went out of her way to help people in need. After gaining U.S. citizenship, she was instrumental in assisting many other immigrants become citizens. Working with others, she learned that she was a natural teacher not only to her own children, but the community’s youth, as well. Truly a highlight of her life was working with students at the Carpinteria Jr. High for 20 years. Those years turned into a lifetime of friendship and love, as the students never forgot her. As adults, they became regular visitors to the Campos household and brought their own children to meet their wonderful Mrs. Campos who was always there for them. Delia kept herself active in ways that brought others sunshine. She loved music, singing, knitting and crocheting. A favorite pastime was reading, particularly history. Not surprisingly, she had a hand in the writing of one of Carpinteria’s best history books. She translated Spanish documents to English for Jayne Craven Caldwell’s “Carpinteria as It Was.” Delia is survived by her loving husband of 74 years, Salvador Campos, her five children, Dr. Jim Campos (Valerie), Arthur, Daniel, Graciela Barnes (Reid) and Alicia Wissing (Andrew). She was most proud of and loved her seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her grandson Eric Campos. The family would especially like to thank Cathy Miller of Pacific Village and her staff for Delia’s outstanding care. We also thank everyone at Hospice/VNA – Shannon, Carolyn, Fabiola and Chaplain Reggie Salcedo. The town of Herreras, Duango, has a tradition of ringing the church bells when one of their own passes away. The bells have been rung for Delia. A celebration of her life will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 1532 Linden Ave., Carpinteria, on Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2021 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at the Church Hall.

City planners unanimously approve new Santa Claus Lane pathway BY RYAN P. CRUZ

Carpinteria’s newest multi-use pathway was approved in a 5-0 vote at the Planning Commission public hearing on Monday, greenlighting a project that would allow bicyclists and pedestrians to enjoy the 0.8 mile stretch and connect a missing portion in the 1,200-mile California Coastal Trail. “I think it’s a great project and I’m really proud I’ve been part of it since the beginning,” said Commissioner John Moyer. “I’m eager to see it come to fruition.” The approved plans for the project, known as the Santa Claus Lane bike and pedestrian path, would stretch along the southern edge of Highway 101 from the intersection of Estero Way and Carpinteria Avenue to Sand Point Road and Santa Claus Lane in Santa Barbara County, and will include a concrete bike path and a sandstone walkway complete with natural landscaping. Moyer mentioned that he used to commute to work by bike through the same area, which he said was a “boring” and attimes “dangerous” ride, and commended the project for making the spaces more easily accessible for the public. Several commissioners also praised the planners’ consideration for not only aesthetics but for the safety of those using the new pathway. One of these safety measures is the redesign of the Carpinteria Avenue off-ramp, which was updated from a straightaway to a “double-curve” that forces drivers to slow down, something that several commissioners mentioned made the area safer for pedestrians and cyclists. Chair Jane Benefield praised the team effort between the city of Carpinteria, county of Santa Barbara and CalTrans for working together to make the new path a reality. “I’m impressed with the coordination efforts that have been going on for a very long time,” Benefield said. “It’s always nice when there’s no conflict.” Carpinteria has already approved the project through the Architectural Board of Review, and the planning commission

“I think it’s a great project and I’m really proud I’ve been part of it since the beginning.”

––Planning Commissioner John Moyer

granted a Conditional Use Permit and a Coastal Development Permit. Construction is slated to begin early next year and is scheduled to be completed in 2023. Carpinteria’s Architectural Board of Review suggested several design elements throughout the process, including the sandstone walkway, concrete bike path, and several protective walls and railings along the wetlands, railroad and highways. All landscaping and building materials were selected to match the coast’s aesthetics and other elements in the area. The railings are meant to replicate “earthy tones” – with a natural “patina” coating on the tubed railings and a wood-colored finish on the guard rails between the trail and the highway. The materials were meant to be consistent with other parts of the city, like the sandstone cobble and landscaping, with planners saying they wanted to keep in line with “textures and colors” used elsewhere in Carpinteria. The materials were also meant to age with the trail, and fit in nicely with the natural habitats and wetlands it passes. Santa Barbara County is currently in the process of approving its section of the trail, which extends about 820 feet of the trail on the Santa Claus Lane side, but it is expected that the path will be approved. As part of the agreement, the city and county will be responsible for maintaining the pathway and CalTrans will maintain the walls and sections near the highway and railroads. Commissioner Glenn Lefevers said that he “absolutely supports” the trail, and added that the project was made possible without any extra inconveniences or traffic delays to drivers.

Students hone their lab skills with CHS science internship program

BY EVELYN SPENCE

At Carpinteria High School, Department Chair Mandi de Witte offers students a chance to hone their lab skills and dive deep into the experience needed to be successful in a STEM career – and 13 students are taking advantage of that program. de Witte, who teaches AP Biology, Honors Biology and Environmental Science and often shows off her students’ skills and projects at @mrsdewittebio on Instagram, said the program allows the internships to learn “firsthand skills required to be successful in a lab setting for future job opportunities and college classes.” “(The students provide) invaluable help to our busy science teachers so they can provide as many hands-on experiences for our students as possible,” de Witte said. The program is available for juniors and seniors at CHS, who must first apply. The 13 students enrolled in the program each work in different capacities, de Witte said. Some helped prep chemical reagents for chemistry labs, dispose of chemicals, clean and store lab equipment and set up lab stations, among other activities. But above all, all must be “responsible, organized, independent, and of course have a love for science” to be a part of the program, she said. Two, including Daisy Martinez and Lizbeth Dominguez set aside a specific period in their school days to work on major projects with de Witte. Praising their work, de Witte said the pair learned first-hand how to organize, store and find Material Safety Data Sheet for all of CHS’s 254 chemicals that students work with – which took seven weeks. “(It) could not have been possible with-

out them,” de Witte emphasized. Senior Martinez said she first heard about the program through her teacher’s Instagram account and was “pretty interested.” “I want to go into biotechnology, and I think working with a science teacher closely (…) is what I wanted to do,” she said, calling the lab skills and her other work with STEM fields interesting. “I’ve really been liking it so far – it’s been in the right direction of what I want to do in the future,” she added. Beyond cataloging the classes’ chemicals, Martinez said she helps set up labs and prep, and wants to continue with the program next semester. “I feel like the internship like kind of helps you get to know the science a little more,” she said. “It helps you set a ground about what you want to do (…) It’s positive environment, that promotes learning for someone who is interested in the medical field.” Senior Dominguez similarly praised the program, noting that she found out about the program while taking environmental science with de Witte during her junior year. “At the end of the year, (de Witte) brought up the internship program for the following year,” Dominguez said. “Her environmental class really got me interested in science, and I knew I really want to major in (a science-related field) in college.” Her main roles, beyond organizing the Material Safety Data Sheet project, include organizing the science labs. She will continue with the program next semester. After she graduates from CHS, she hopes to study microbiology in college – ultimately looking to work at a water plant.

Lizbeth Dominguez, left, and Daisy Martinez, right, organized the material safety data sheets for all 254 chemicals in CHS’s inventory. The project took seven weeks. “(I want to) look at the water, and make sure it’s safe to drink and use in people’s homes,” she said. Next, the students will focus on repair-

4-H collects over 250 lbs of food in drive

Carpinteria’s Playa Del Sur 4-H collected over 250 pounds of food during its annual food drive in November, the club announced. The food, including cans of fruit, veggies, tuna, dry beans, rice, pasta, peanut butter, cereal and oatmeal, will be given to the Carpinteria Woman’s Club, for the “support-a-family” 2021 project. “It’s important for kids to learn that there are always opportunities to give back to the community. This is a food drive we are proud to have always done, and will continue to do,” 4-H leader Jasmyn Arroyo said. The club will continue to collect donated socks throughout December.

Carpinteria nonprofits awarded donations from Cars for Charity

The United Boys & Girls Clubs, Carpinteria, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, and the Carpinteria Children’s Project have received donations from LinkedIn, the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce, announced. The chamber, which LinkedIn has been a member of since 2015, said the money came from the sale of several vehicles, from Cars for Charity through LinkedIn. Michael Baker, CEO of the United Boys & Girls Clubs, said the organization is “thrilled to be chosen by LinkedIn for this very generous donation. LinkedIn has always been a tremendous corporate citizen and this gift will help us to continue our efforts to reach the youth that need our services the most,” Baker said. Teresa Alvarez, executive director of the Carpinteria Children’s Project, praised the donation and said it will fund the Family Resource Center. “LinkedIn has been a valuable partner for Carpinteria. First, they encourage employees to give locally to agencies like ours, and these gifts make a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve. This larger gift from LinkedIn will fund tuition scholarships to ensure children from all backgrounds have a safe place to learn and grow,” she wrote.

Padaro Lane gallery shows lost Hank Pitcher painting

Search the archives at

CoastalView.com

Recently opened Lobster Town USA gallery is now showing a work by artist Hank Pitcher that was painted in 1965 and has been rarely seen since. Pitcher painted the work, “East Beach & Butterfly,” as a commission for Carine Delgi Esposti, the owner of Antoinetee and Intimo on Coast Village Road. The painting shows a view of Channel Drive and the ocean. After the opening of the stores, the painting measures 9 feet x 16.5 feet and was taken down and stored until recently when Esposti’s late husband’s stepsons found Pitcher’s panels, “carefully preserved and stored away,” according to the gallery. “The painting has rarely been exposed to sunlight and the colors are intense and vital. It is breathtaking to see,” the galley wrote in a press release.

A detail of “East Beach & Butterfly” (9 ft. x 16.5 ft.) by Hank Pitcher features the view of Channel Drive and the ocean, looking south.

Roxanne Barbieri makes work fun CVN

A MONTHLY MUSE MELINDA WITTWER Life was busy for the Barbieri family in 1982 so Roxanne, her husband Kent and their young family decided they needed to amp things up a bit by buying a dilapidated old house on Maple Street. Roxanne thought the house was quirky and unloved but with potential, so she stood on the courthouse steps during a foreclosure sale and bid for a chance to make her “wish and a dream” ideas a reality. Getting the small, worse-for-wear beach cottage ready for business was a joint effort for not only Roxanne and Kent, but also for the couple’s parents and children. Professionals were called in for the heavy work, but Roxanne had a vision of what she wanted her business to look like, and she and her family used sweat equity to make Roxanne’s a Wish and a Dream one of the best quilt stores in California and beyond. Roxanne’s store grew over the next 25 years, as did the size of her once tiny beach cottage. There were sewing classes, knitting classes, quilting classes and a variety of craft classes. Sections of her store now contained gifts and cards and specialty items and tools for sewing plus an array of Singer Featherweights, all refurbished back to pristine condition. But – funny how there is always a “but” – life required that older parents needed caring for, so Roxanne decided it was time to retire. She sold her successful business lock, stock and barrel – everything except the physical store, which became leased. Five years later, the person that bought Roxanne’s business decided she wanted out and would not be renewing her lease. Roxanne was sure her four-thousandsquare-foot building would be easy to rent, and she could continue to enjoy retirement. But the idea of rebuilding Roxanne’s a Wish and a Dream kept calling her. Since the store was now completely empty, the Barbieris once again pulled together and took on the challenge to refurbish everything. They rebuilt all the

One of the main reasons Roxanne felt she could take on running a business again is her faith in her employees. Michele Vallejo has been with her over 25 years. At this time, the rest of the staff includes Sherri Mendenhall, Trela Cowan, Teresa Strong, Susan Evans, Angela Sommerson and Daniela Wood. Also to Roxanne’s advantage is her long relationship with suppliers and her knowledge of where and when to go for fabric and gifts. Normally this grandmother enjoys the Christmas holidays, and then gets ready to start buying unique products in January to continue pleasing customers. Roxanne has turned her hobbies into a successful business. She loves what she does. She grew up sewing and making things with the help of her mother, who was a great seamstress, and her father

who enjoyed building and working with wood. People from all over the United States and even overseas come to Rox-

anne’s to enjoy and find their creative outlet. Her store works at having a variety of textiles that are designed by talented fabric artists such as Kaffe Fasset. In addition, Australian aboriginal designed fabrics and holiday materials are always available. Roxanne admits she was a novice when she first started her business. She didn’t know what a big job owning her own business would be. If she were starting today, she feels that one benefit would be the access to information quickly due to modern technology. On the other hand, the downside of trying to start a new business from scratch would be the high cost of leasing or trying to buy a building, plus the growing costs of insurance and utilities. Personally, I have been in and out of Roxanne’s many times over the years. Each time I am greeted by splashes of color, selections of just-the-right cards, Christmas ornaments I just have to buy (even though I already have too many), and the promise that there is something here I need to make. My creative skills, as slim as they are, lie in clay not fabric, but I have made several baby quilts and have a half-made quilt waiting patiently for my attention. So, if you visit Roxanne’s on Maple Street, be ready to spend time to explore all the nooks and crannies of her store. Whatever you decide to do, remember, it has to be something you love rather than something perfect. 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.

2 lbs. sweet potatoes 2 Tbsp butter 1 Tbsp brown sugar 1/2 tsp salt 3 navel oranges 2 cups mini marshmallows Preheat oven to 400°F. Pierce sweet potatoes several times with a fork or knife. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake 1 hour. Let cool several minutes, cut in half and scoop out insides into a large bowl. Mash with butter, brown sugar, evaporated milk and salt until creamy. Cut oranges in half and slice a very thin disk from bottoms so they rest flat. Preheat oven to 350°F. Using a paring knife, cut around the inside rim of the orange, removing the orange sections and pulp. Discard juice, pulp and seeds, leaving just the hollowed-out peel. Fill each orange cup with 1⁄4 cup of sweet potato mixture and top with mini marshmallows. Place on a sheet tray and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until marshmallows are slightly browned.

A sweet potato isn’t actually a potato? Sweet potatoes belong to the morning glory family (also known as the convolvulaceae family) and are actually tuberous root vegetables. Sweet potatoes are in season year-round and are rich in nutrients such as vitamin A, E, B6 and C, betacarotene, manganese and potassium.

DON’T CALL ME Sweet potatoes are not yams. Yams are an edible root of the Dioscorea genus, and are generally imported to America from the Caribbean.

In a bright spot of holiday cheer, Carpinterians of all ages bundled up on for the Holiday Spirit Parade – a nice return of joy as the world prepares to enter 2023, which will soon mark two years since the Covid-19 pandemic began. Linden Avenue was filled with all manners of joy, from bagpipers marching to the beat of the drum, to cheerleaders from Carpinteria High School waving their pom-poms. The official grand marshal of the Holiday Spirit Parade was the Carpinteria Valley cannabis operator, Autumn Brands.

Pelagic Safari

CVN

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM The deep submarine canyon was boiling with marine life. Massive bait balls of fish were swirling together, herded by several hungry humpback whales. Pacific white-sided dolphins were sidling up nearby, piggybacking on the humpback’s aquatic pursuit. A few California sea lions weaved their way into the mix between all the cetaceans in Monterey Bay. Anticipation mounted long before we reached Monterey Bay for a whale watch excursion out to one of the most studied places on the planet in terms of oceanography and marine biology. Monterey Bay teems with marine mammals and throngs of seabirds. The massive trench is also known as “the Grand Canyon of the West Coast.” It is one mile deep and 300 miles long. I traveled with my girlfriend Holly Lohuis, a naturalist and marine biologist; it’s always fun being on the boats with her, learning from someone who has devoted a big chunk of her life to marine conservation. After we booked two whale watching trips, we both kept tabs on the daily sightings leading up to our trips. It seemed like every day was the next best day for sightings. What would ours be like? Not only do folks want to see the amazing animals that flock to Monterey like it’s some sort of pelagic Mecca, but the weather is another factor. Fog and northwesterly winds can put a damper on a trip, making it challenging to spot marine mammals. The reports we tracked before our trips showed heaps of orca activity towards the tail end of the northbound gray whale migration. One report in particular spoke of orca predation on a gray whale calf with as many as 15 orcas feeding on the carcass.

Right out of the gate

As our first trip began, we weren’t out of the harbor yet before we saw a southern sea otter feeding on a crab, lying on its back and using its chest like a kitchen table. The marine mammal with the densest fur in the animal kingdom finished off the crab within seconds. Just beyond the jetties we were greeted by a small pod of Risso’s dolphins appearing just off our starboard bow. They have the ability to dive 1,000 feet down and hold their breath for 30 minutes. Predominantly deep-water marine mammals, it was surprising seeing them so close to the harbor, but wildlife is on its schedule.

Lunge-feeding humpbacks are seen in Monterey Bay.

A black-footed albatross displays its impressive 10-foot-wide wingspan while, at right, a pod of orcas searches for food. They’re unpredictable. Holly and I posted up on the bow of the boat. We didn’t want to miss anything. It was clear with winds light and variable. The weather was favorable for spotting big splashes on the distant horizon for some pelagic megafauna. That first trip we were not disappointed. Orcas are always at the top of our list whether in Monterey Bay or the Santa Barbara Channel, but Monterey Bay definitely has a higher sighting rate when it comes to experiencing these apex predators. They are at the very top of the food chain. Their intelligence is on a whole other level with complex family dynamics. Seeing them in the past has always been a thrill, and we were in luck on our first trip. They were moving fast and there were six orcas in the pod. Because they are a keystone species, everything steers clear of them except seabirds that know

eventually the orcas will locate prey – and the seabirds will be there to clean things up. Nothing goes to waste out there. We stayed with the orca for a good portion of our three-hour trip. It was hard to leave them knowing they would eventually pursue something. However, all the whale watching companies work together out there, so every company shares information and allows any boats in the vicinity to enjoy the wildlife. We were just getting started though. Further out into Monterey Bay, it was only a matter of time before cetaceans appeared again.

The most animated

It was a tail fluke and several spouts that drew the captain’s attention. Clearly visible from the bow of the boat, humpback whales are the most fun to watch of the baleen whales. They were busy too. In hot pursuit of massive bait balls of

sardines, they were pushing their prey hard. Everyone on the boat was on their feet anticipating what might happen next. There would be quiet, and then suddenly the baitfish would begin jumping out of the water, followed by the lunge-feeding humpbacks. Their colossal mouths were fully agape consuming as much food as possible, baitfish filtering through bristles of baleen. Humpbacks are well-equipped for action. Adults weigh in at 40 tons, or about the size of five African elephants. They’re not the biggest whales. That title belongs to the blue whale, but humpbacks hold the distinction for the largest pectoral flippers that reach 15-feet in length. This helps them swim fast and make tight arcs underwater as they chase down their prey. There were lots of seabirds flying overhead and sitting in the water just outside where the humpbacks were feeding. The most impressive was a lone black-footed albatross soaring and swooping above the whales. On the fringe were sooty shearwaters, northern fulmars and common murres. We could’ve easily stayed out on the boat all day. With that much wildlife around, three hours came up quick, but we were appreciative of the amazing web of life constantly teeming throughout Monterey Bay.

Warriors girls water polo starts season strong BY RYAN P. CRUZ Carpinteria’s girls water polo program has made a splash in the beginning of the season, picking up three straight wins including a big victory over crosstown rival Cate. In their season opener against Buena, the Warriors jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead in the first quarter of action before the Bulldogs surged back within two and the teams went into halftime with a score of 6-4. Senior Alex Zapata stepped up for Carpinteria, scoring two goals and extending the lead to 8-4. The Warriors finished with a solid fourth quarter, scoring four goals and allowing only one, sealing the victory

and earning their first win with a final score of 12-5. Coach Jon Otsuki said that the Warriors were able to use strong team defense to shut down Buena, with the team picking up eight steals throughout the game. Zapata and junior Ainslee Alexander led the team with five goals each, along with one steal for Alexander and two by Zapata. Senior Piper Clayton and junior Erin Otsuki were standouts on defense for Carpinteria, with Clayton causing problems for the Bulldogs and snagging three steals and Otsuki blocking 12 shots in the win. The Warriors followed up the season-opening win with a rivalry victory in the “battle of the 192” against Cate,

extending their undefeated start to 2-0 on the season. In the crosstown rivalry game, Carpinteria jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead by the end of the first quarter, “then utilized the margin of lead to get reserve players involved,” coach Jon Otsuki said. It was a true team effort for the Warriors: Alexander and Briana Rodriguez both led the team with four goals each, while Zapata, Jocelyn Pena and Serena Smith all scored a pair of goals. Five more Warriors – Natalia Perez, Guilia Piccoletti, Monica Delgado, Lilli Nemetz and Kate Isaac – pitched in for the win with one goal each. Goalie Erin Otsuki once again played a solid game in front of the net, stopping 9 shots in three quarters.

In the third straight win of the year, the Warriors held off the visiting Thousand Oaks Lancers for a narrow 9-8 victory. After coming out of halftime tied 5-5, the game turned into a defensive battle, with Carpinteria narrowly pulling away by one goal. Alexander stood out again and led all scorers with four goals, while Zapata finished with three of her own. The undefeated start to the girls water polo season matches the boys’ success from earlier this year, which ultimately led to Carpinteria’s first-ever CIF Southern Section championship in the sport. The girls squad is looking to build on a strong start to make their own CIF run. Carpinteria will hit the road to face Santa Ynez on Thursday, Dec. 9.

Girls basketball team picks up second win by one point

After losing to a talented St. Bonaventure Seraphs team and dropping to 1-2 on the year, the Warriors’ girls basketball team bounced back with a one-point victory over Coastal Christian for their second win of the year. Both games were part of the “brickhouse” tournament at Bishop Diego High School, and both were non-league games. In the 13-60 loss to St. Bonaventure, coach Henry Gonzales said the Warriors “battled and hustled to the very end,” though the team struggled to keep up on offense. Sophomore Amarisse Camargo continued to shine on the court with seven points and 14 rebounds, while fellow sophomore Lizbeth Alpizar also snagged seven rebounds of her own. “I was pleased with our effort and willingness to play a full four quarters even though the score was not on our side,” Gonzales said. The next day, Carpinteria showed up and played with determination and grit, Gonzales said, to secure a hard-fought victory. “We found ourselves down four points at the end of the first period but were able to storm back and take the lead at halftime by three points,” he said. The duo of sophomores, Alpizar and Camargo, led the team once again with nine and eight points, respectively. The Warriors fought back from a six-point deficit to take the win on a 10-3 run in the fourth quarter. “We continue to learn and have a positive outlook on the season,” Gonzales said. “I’m very happy with our attitude and work ethic.”

Carpinteria girls soccer plays hard in first three games

The Warriors girls soccer team kicked off its season with a loss, a win, and a tie to come to a 1-1-1 overall record after three games. In the season opener, Carpinteria gave up a goal in the first half and were unable

In the annual Christmas Holiday Parade, the Carpinteria community celebrated its water polo and swim CIF champions, as both teams “floated” down Linden Avenue holding their championship banners and showing “Warrior spirit never dies.” This week also marks the final week of the Carpinteria Lions’ Club Festival of Trees, where Warrior red mixed with holiday green to raise money for the city’s new skate park.

to recover against the experienced Channel Islands squad and ultimately fell in a shutout loss, 0-3. At home against La Reina, the Warriors found their groove and won 1-0 off an exciting second chance rebound goal from junior midfielder Ashley Verduzco in the 37th minute. Carpinteria’s Camryn Siegel was taken down in the box, leading to a penalty kick by Verduzco that was blocked by La Reina’s goalkeeper. Verduzco was able to recover the blocked kick and hit the back of the net for the deciding goal. Coach Freddy Martinez praised senior captains Karen Gamez and Riley Wrought for their play on defense contributing to the shutout win. In one of several “battle for the 192” matches for the week, the Warriors and Rams faced off on the pitch – going back and forth in a 1-1 draw. Carpinteria took the lead in the 23rd minute with a goal from sophomore Isela Zamora, who was called up to play in the varsity match for the day. On the other end of the field, goalkeeper Ariana Launsbury tallied five saves, keeping the Cate offense at bay for most of the match. The Warriors kept the 1-0 lead until Cate scored an equalizer after a defensive breakdown with eight minutes left. “I was very pleased with the overall performance of the girls today. And although there was disappointment for not being able to hold the lead to the end of the match, a massive step towards becoming a consistent and competitive team was achieved today,” Martinez said. “I was very pleased with the performance of Juniors Ashley Verduzco and Ariana Lounsbury and I know their continued efforts will get us where we need to be for league play.” Carpinteria is now 1-1-1 overall, with the next match against Santa Clara on Thursday.

Cate takes “battle for the 192” in boys soccer

The Carpinteria Warriors and Cate Rams faced off in the crosstown rivalry once again in boys soccer, with Cate coming out on top thanks to a four-goal performance from senior Peter Wood. Cate wasted no time, with a goal in the first minute of the game off the foot of sophomore Seb Sutch. Wood scored his first goal of the day just eight minutes later after Sutch was fouled in the box, leading to a penalty kick. Carpinteria was able to fight back and score a goal before halftime, and the teams headed into the break with a score of 2-1, Cate. Wood exploded for a second-half hat trick, and the Rams took the win 5-2.

On the girls side of the court, the Rams started off the season strong with a 50-18 win over Coastal Christian, then dropped a game against Bishop to finish the week 1-1 overall. The win over Coastal Christian was a “dominant performance,” said coach Laura Moore, to open up the season in the Bishop Diego Tournament. Senior Imani Oseso, sophomore Ada Hansen, junior Mary Foster, and freshmen Sophia Ospina and Sam Jimenez helped the Rams capitalize on their opponents’ turnovers to quickly establish a lead. Oseso led the team with 12 points. “It was wonderful to see the hard work of our team pay off and an encouraging start to the season,” Moore said. Cate struggled against a tough Bishop team and ultimately fell, 25-45. “Going into tonight’s game, we anticipated it would be an uphill battle,” Moore
