PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING Carpinteria girls basketball had a busy week with five games in seven days. The Warriors picked up some quality wins together, led by junior Amarisse Camargo and freshman duo Jamaica Cook and Charlotte Cooney. The Warriors got a great start to the week with a 53-35 home win against Thacher.
It
was the home opener for Carpinteria, and Camargo gave the Warriors fans a good reason to cheer by scoring half of the team’s points in the first two quarters and giving Carpinteria a 26-20 halftime lead. In the second half, everyone on the team got in on the action and the War riors stretched their lead to as many as 24 points in the fourth quarter. Camargo fin ished with 23 points, seven rebounds and four steals in the win. Cook, a freshman in her first year with the team, finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and three steals. “I was happy with our overall team play on offense and defense,” said Car pinteria coach Henry Gonzales. The Warriors got back on the court for a three-day tournament at Bishop Diego. Carpinteria stumbled out of the gate with two losses on the first day, against tourna ment host Bishop Diego and Santa Maria. In the 52-42 loss to Santa Maria, the Jamaica Cook is a force all the court, racking up points, and rebounds. Warriors fought back from a nine-point deficit in the first quarter to bring the game within three by halftime, led by eight points from Camargo and nine from Cooney and solid rebounding efforts by Cook and junior Lizbeth Alpizar. trio of Camargo, Cooney and Cook finished with 13, 15 and eight points in the loss. next day, Carpinteria got back into winning form with a 38-23 win over crosstown rival Cate. Gonzales said the win was a testament to the strong defensive mindset of the team, which was able to hold Cate under ten points in every period. Alpizar, Cook and senior Scarlet Torres combined for 10 steals in the win. built on that momentum on the final day of the tournament with another decisive win over Coastal Christian, 54-32. Coach Gonzales said the team was determined to end the tournament on a positive note heading into league play next week. The team was led once again by Camargo, who scored 10 of the first 15 points in the game, and freshman duo Cook and Cooney, who combined for all 13 of the Warriors’ second- quarter points. At halftime, Carpinteria was up 28-8. started with good energy, espe cially on defense which led to some easy baskets,” Gonzales said. Coastal Christian battled back in the second half, cutting the lead to eight points at one point, before Carpinteria got back into rhythm and built the lead to over 20 points. “Our trio of Jamaica Cook (18 points, 13 rebounds), Amarisse Camargo (17 points, 11 rebounds) and Charlotte Cooney (16 points, 5 rebounds) were instrumental in our success,” Gonzales said.
“I’m proud of our team for their dedication, commitment, and willing ness to compete.”

Lifelong Carpinterian John Wullbrandt is this year’s Holiday Parade grand marshal, Kim Gutierrez of Carp Events confirmed. This year’s parade is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 10 at 3 p.m., starting at the corner of Linden Avenue and Ninth Street.

In a message to CVN, Wullbrandt thanked the community’s volunteers for their work. “We celebrate our first responders, healthcare workers, educators, community leaders, service organizations, non-profits, local merchants, ranchers, farmers, grocers, restaurateurs and food servers, brewers, mechanics, artists, laborers, sponsors, philanthropists, city employees and all others, especially our elders and our youth who make Carpinteria a place of pride,” he said.

“Parade participants and parade goers come together for a moment that warms

the heart. We find ourselves remembering past parades and those marching with us in spirit. For this parade let us not be divided by political, racial, social or economic differences. We march once more united as Carpinterians who care for each other. And as we approach the end of the year we are looking forward, filled with hope for a bright and promising New Year.

“Thank you for this opportunity to follow in the footsteps of so many. It is my great honor to marshal the 2022 Carpinteria Holiday Spirit Parade.”

Planning Commission moves forward with permanent parklets, formula business ban

Both items need final City Council approval

Carpinteria’s planning commission approved a long-term plan for parklets in town and moved forward with a perma nent ban on formula businesses during a downtown focused session on Monday.

The temporary parklets in the down town area popped up during the Covid-19 pandemic, but after finding the outdoor seating was well-liked by both business owners and customers who got to enjoy an outdoor meal, city council directed staff to start the process to allow parklets to exist permanently.

City planner Nick Bobroff and Public Works Director John Ilasin outlined the permanent plan, which was drafted after several meetings of the council, traffic and site development subcommittees, archi tectural review board and a downtown business open house over the past year.

The final plan would establish the parklets for the long run, allowing restau rants and food service businesses on the ground floor within the Downtown “T” district to use outdoor parklets for the next five years at least, so long as they fit within the newly established guidelines.

The parklet for a single business could only occupy a maximum of two parking spaces, though two adjacent businesses could combine and share a parklet span ning four spaces. Parklets could operate only during business hours, but “must be made available for public use,” and the city encourages businesses to use some sort of permanent seating.

Businesses will be able to choose from two available prefabricated options –costing between $12,500 and $15,000 – or could build their own, as long as the parklet fits within the city’s guidelines. Movable seating would have to be moved and stored by the end of the day; lighting would have to be “self-contained and battery powered” only and no electronics, televisions, projectors or speakers would be allowed.

Some of the specifics of the guidelines were still open for changes, and the plan ning commission narrowed down some of the decisions, recommending that canopies be allowed, as well as portable heaters, although businesses will have to remove propane tanks overnight and secure them to prevent theft or fire risk.

It still remains to be decided whether the business owners will have to tear down the parklets for Carpinteria’s an nual Avocado Festival. The drafted plan floated the idea that the parklets would be taken down during the week of the event to coincide with the required once-a-year city inspection; businesses could also pay a fee to keep their parklets for the festival.

As a compromise, the planning com mission recommended that city council try to allow the businesses to keep the parklets without having to pay during the Avocado Festival.

In general, the commission agreed that the parklets were a positive for businesses and would be a benefit for creating a more walkable downtown district.

“The parklets have proved their useful ness,” said commissioner John Callender. “I’m a supporter of reclaiming public space from the automobile in Downtown ‘T.’ It’s in our interest to imagine a version of downtown Carpinteria that is more pedestrian friendly.”

Permanent parklets must be limited in size and conform with local guidelines.

The commission voted 4-1 to recom mend that council adopt the resolution and establish the parklets for a five-year period. Chair Jane Benefield, the sole op posing vote, said she didn’t think the city was ready for permanent parklets and the city should be mindful of available parking downtown.

Even though there is a surplus of park ing now, according to a recent parking study, Benefield said upcoming devel opments – including the multi-business marketplace at 700 Linden Ave. and the proposed Palms Hotel project – would change the picture in the future.

“I think parklets are a good idea whose time has not come for Carpinteria yet,” she said. “The study says there’s parking spaces (now), but if we keep taking spac es, there won’t be.”

Also at this month’s planning commis sion, a permanent ordinance to regulate

“formula businesses” in the downtown district was approved 4-1, with commis sioner John Moyer voting against. Moyer said he was worried that it was a “ma nipulation of free enterprise” to control which businesses could open in town.

The permanent ordinance would ex tend what was a temporary ban on “big box” businesses – chain restaurants, cor porate retail stores and nationwide hotels preventing any new formula businesses from obtaining a certificate of occupancy.

The current moratorium lasts until June 26, 2023, and the new permanent ordinance is nearly identical to its tempo rary counterpart, adding only a provision that extends the “exclusion zone” to busi nesses on Casitas Pass Road all the way to the Arco and McDonald’s locations.

Formula businesses that already have a location in Carpinteria, like Starbucks, would be allowed to keep their license in the event of relocation to the down town district. The planning commission recommended that city council also add a provision in the ordinance to allow other exceptions when they came up or allow businesses to appeal in certain circumstances.

In other business, the commission unanimously approved a two-year exten sion on the Haber Condominiums on Sev enth Street, and another smaller duplex addition and remodel on the same street.

Planning commission will reconvene for a special meeting on Dec. 19.

Say no to water reclamation project

I would like to thank Mayor Wade Nomura for writing “We must protect Carpinteria” (CVN Vol. 29, No. 11)

There is not a “one size fits all” answer to housing growth in California. We res idents of the coast are already squeezed. There are massive stretches of unused land throughout our state that can be tapped for growth, particularly in the valley and far north. Use that land!

Politicians tend to “kick the can” and vote for unsustainable plans that cause tremendous future problems. San Francisco is only one sad example of a formerly beautiful city now destroyed by poor and irresponsible political decisions. There is no accountability. We have to remain vigilant.

Thank you, Mayor Nomura for stand ing up and saying no! We must con tinually fight to protect our town. Just because we are tiny does not mean that we should be bullied by clueless state politicians. This goes for local problems as well. Currently the water company is planning a “Water Reclamation’’ project in El Carro Park.

They have no regard for the many people who use the park; the dog walkers, the soccer players, the Girls Inc. facility. Or the neighbors who live next door. The water company has decided that this public park is the only place in all of the Santa Barbara County valley that can

accommodate their project.

This is wrong. It is a case of a large entity blindly rolling over the weak. Yes, we need an independent source of water, but there are many other places this facil ity could be located. My thinking is that by placing it on public land, the water company gets to use it for free. Help us, Wade Nomura! Help the residents who live adjacent to El Carro Park!

To Airbnb or to not Airbnb

I wanted to see what other Carpinteri ans think of all the Airbnbs in our town. Since buying our home three years ago we now have one on either side of us, and two more (that I know about) on our street. They used to not bother me but the constant flow makes the neighbor hood feel like a motel, not to mention the occasional sketchy visitor. I understand we want tourists for local businesses, but at what cost? How many people do you know who can’t find a house to rent in town, yet when you go on Airbnb. com there are endless houses available for short-term rentals. Seems like we are pushing Carpinterians out in exchange for tourists... and cheapening our neigh borhoods in the process.

Edward Goulart

In 1978 he established the Wine Seller’s Deli in San Jose and ran the business with his wife and two sons for 12 years.

Upon retiring in 2000, he and his wife built a home by the ocean in Carpinte ria, CA. Ed volunteered as a driver for HELP of Carpinteria. Ed loved the sport of bowling and competed in several leagues and tournaments in San Jose, Ventura, Reno and Las Vegas. He and his wife enjoyed living near their two sons with their wives, grandchildren and great-grandson.

Ed is survived by his wife of 60 years, Darklis Anne; his sons Gregory (Mira) and Todd (Julie) Goulart; grandchildren Timothy, Tabitha (Spencer), Deborah (Travis), Bradley, Nicholas and Carson Goulart; and great-grandchildren Leon and Poppy.

Nilo Fanucchi

For months leading up to Dec 10, 2016 Dad was blissfully anticipating our Holiday Parade, where he’d be opening the event as Grand Marshal. Mike Lazaro, one of Dad’s most favorite humans, had arranged for David Powdrell to escort Dad down Linden in a convertible where announcer/ buon amico John Palminteri would eagerly broadcast his arrival. It could not have been more perfect. Dad surrounded by people he absolutely cherished, driving through the town he absolutely loved and being cheered by a community he absolutely adored. It was perfection in the making. However, as the 10th neared, it became undeniably clear that dad would not make it to the holiday parade, for his journey was instead aimed towards the most spectacular and glorious of all destinations.

As immigrants, education, work and property ownership were always the goal and California’s pull of incredible weather and work opportunities enticed the Fanucchi family to move out west from Chicago. Landing in Monterey Park, my Nana (grandmother) found work as a seamstress and my Nanu (grandfather) a groundskeeper. ey were perfectly happy living in Monterey Park, until Dad received a scholarship to play baseball for Cal Poly SLO . On their way to San Luis, Nanu saw mountains of Carpinteria for the rst time and declaried “ ose look just like Tassignano!” referring to their hometown in Tuscany. My grandparents were so moved by their similarity that they moved to Carpinteria while Dad attended college. Mom (Rosemarie) and Dad later joined them in 1959, nding their 1st home in an apartment at Sunset Shores. My future Godparents, Erma and Harold Smith together with Margaret and Stan Taggart, my brother Stephen’s future Godparents, tucked both my parents and grandparents under their wings, where they permanently stayed being nurtured and loved all of the days of their lives.

Our home practiced an open-door-policy. It was where all our friends gathered, and it was common to nd a bed made up for guests ranging from family members needing a new adventure, friends in want of my parent’s guidance, to yearlong exchange students. Dad was always eager to help and his hypersocial and nurturing personality made him a magnet. He loved new things and introducing people to new things, anyone spending time with the Fanucchi’s were bound to learn something fresh and exciting. It was like attending e School of Nilo.

Dad loved beautiful things, wonderful food, travel, literature, nature, art, history, sports, deep discussions and of course entertainment - especially operas, plays and musicals. La Boheme, Turandot, all of Puccini’s work were great loves of his life. Our home was continually lled with music . . . from Luciano Pavarotti belting out Nessun Dorma to Dad rehearsing Oh Holy Night, to Stephen auditioning for yet another starring role. Mom o en accompanied them on piano with myself and our dogs as captive audience members. Like our dogs, I did not inherit the showbiz gene. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the almost daily performances.

Our nightly and required family dinners included round-table discussions about the latest headlines, books, school projects, etc., and even guests were expected to participate. Dad encouraged us to think deeply, articulate those thoughts and never shy away from conversation. No subject was ever o limits and di erences of opinions were highly encouraged. He was blessed with an impressive intellect and was always eager to share his perspectives. I’m sure his gaggle of morning co ee gatherers could speak volumes about this. When Stephen died in 1994, being gay and having AIDS brought out some pretty ugly human behavior, but Dad never allowed that ugliness to invade our family. In fact, he channeled all his heartbreak, devastation, anger and love into AIDS education, creating room and understanding for those enduring the disease while giving their families a loving space for support. However, if warranted he could get scrappy, a side no one ever wanted to be the recipient of.

Dad found another great love in the work of Rotary International, becoming Carpinteria’s 1st and one of the youngest District Governors ever. He travelled the world meeting and collaborating with other Rotarians developing solutions to some of our most challenging problems. Under their wings, the Smiths and Taggarts instilled “leave this world a better place” directives which my parents heeded wholeheartedly, threading that mandate throughout everything they did.

December 10th will mark six years since Dad’s ight to heaven, a journey supported by both earthly and heavenly angels. For the days leading up to his departure, Dad was eternally surrounded by love, love from friends, love from nurses, love from those in the great beyond. Family friend Kelly Clark supported us throughout. She stepped in, gently working in lockstep with both Hospice and me. She took the helm, allowing me to just be his daughter, to be in all the moments that were unfolding, to fully experience God’s glory as Dad transitioned from this realm to our true, forever home.

Tis Saturday, as I cheer and celebrate Grand Marshal, John Wulbrandt in our Holiday Parade, hang our stars on Hospice’s Tree of Lights, sit with the feels from the forever and relentlessly missing- I’ll also be raising a few glasses to our community in gratitude for all the love they bestowed upon Dad and to the beautiful life he was so blessed to live, “Chin chin e Buon Natale!”

Carpinteria Seniors Inc. marks 50th anniversary of charter

Carpinteria Seniors Inc. celebrated the 50th anniversary of its charter with a lunch for members on Friday at Carpin teria Community Church, combining the celebration with the group’s annual Christmas festivities and toy drive.

Pat Keiser, president of the group, said the original charter for Seniors Inc. was discovered last year. The group had a new slate of board members to swear in, and while sorting through papers, discovered that the group was chartered on Dec. 19, 1972 – nearly 50 years ago to the date.

Two signatures were on the charter, Keiser said: Andrea Otto and Barbara Ar mandeck. Keiser said she attended high school with one of Armandeck’s sons.

“We knew we had to do something… and get everyone involved,” she said. “We try to have at least five meals a year as a group.” The club invited its 100 plus members to attend the lunch Friday, which included a turkey, ham and cake, as well as a performance from the Treble Clef Choir.

Members also brought toys to be brought to the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District, which will later be donated to local children and families.

In November, the group donated 27 bags of groceries to the Main School, to be given to families in need, and hosted a turkey drive the Friday before Thanks giving.

Keiser said 40 years ago, Seniors Inc. received a cash endowment from two wealthy members, who left it to the group after they passed away. The money was then invested, and Keiser said it has

allowed the group to take trips and par ticipate in philanthropic events.

Carpinteria Seniors Inc. is open to res idents 55 and older; membership fees are $20 a year. The club typically meets at the Carpinteria Community Church on the first of each month. To learn more about the group, contact carpsandy@gmail.com.

Real estate demand down, interest rates up

CVN

THE QUARTERLY REPORT

This market has sure been on some ride over the last couple of years. With so many buyers competing over so few homes and super low-interest rates, combined with a lot of migration, this market is calming now, which feels so strange after all the activity. Now with interest rates doubling and a weakening economy, it sure feels like the foot has been taken off the gas.

We are thankful that, unlike the stock market, residential real estate is more than just an investment; for most of our clients, real estate is first and foremost a home.

So how’s the real estate market? The most notable change in the market is our drop in sales volume. The first quarter of 2022 was fairly normal, but a noticeable decrease began in April/May of 2022. At first, we thought the decrease was due to extremely low inventory, but it has be come clear now that our demand has dropped over the last six months even with low inventory. Looking at our last

Year-To-Date

TOTAL SALES: 1,282 in ‘22 vs 1,932 in ‘21 | DOWN 33%

TOTAL HOME SALES: 900 in ‘22 vs 1,351 in ‘21 | DOWN 33%

TOTAL CONDO SALES: 382 in ‘22 vs 572 in ‘21 | DOWN 33%

MEDIAN HOME PRICE: $2,165,000 in ‘22 vs $1,875,000 in ‘21 | UP 15%

MEDIAN CONDO PRICE: $955,500 in ‘22 vs $839,500 in ‘21 | UP 14%

SALES ABOVE $5M: 119 in ‘22 vs 181 in ‘21 | DOWN 34%

October 2022

TOTAL SALES: 98 in ‘22 vs 172 in ‘21 | DOWN 43%

PENDING SALES: 87 in ‘22 vs 167 in ‘21 | DOWN 48%

TOTAL OFF-MARKET SALES: 9 Sales | 9%

TOTAL CASH SALES: 35 Sales | 36%

AVERAGE 30-YEAR FIXED RATE MORTGAGE: 6.62% as of Nov. 28, ‘22

six months of sales (May–October) and comparing it to the sales from 2013 to 2019 for the same time period, our total sales volume dropped by 28%.

With the decrease in demand for most properties, overall we are seeing prices

decrease. This is not evident yet in our year-over-year

shown in our October statistics, but in comparing the first five months of 2022 through the second part of the year, we see a notice able 12% drop in our median sales price. These times of transition in the market

can cause many to take pause and seek to understand what the new normal is. We are hopeful that we will find a new equilibrium shortly as interest rates stop their rapid increase and buyer and sellers understand the current market.

The one phenomenon that stands out to us is how a mass consensus can be strongly positive or strongly negative on a market over a relatively short period of time. We are reminded in these times that reality is probably somewhere in the mid dle. The desire for home ownership will remain strong. Sales are still occurring in this transitioning market there is just a little more to navigate at the moment.

The county animal shelters took in 334 pets in November 2022, compared to 117 during the same period last year.

County animal shelters face “high volume”

Santa Barbara County Animal Services is reporting a high volume of pets in its shelters, with numbers “that we haven’t seen in years,” Sarah Aguilar, animal shelter director, said.

The shelters took in 334 pets in November 2022, compared to 117 during the same period last year; during the first week of December, the shelters took in 87 new pets, with no vacant kennels available on Dec. 2. After sending out an alert, community members took in 33 pets, freeing up some space.

“The outpouring of support indicates just how much Santa Barbara County cares about our pets. Over 100 pets are currently housed in foster homes, on their way to adoption,” Aguilar added.

Cranberry-Oatmeal Christmas Cookies

In a separate, larger bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and oats. To this bowl, add the walnuts, cranberries and the sugar/egg mixture. Mix well. This mixture will be very thick, so be sure to scrape down to the bottom of the mixing bowl so that everything gets mixed thoroughly.

RANDY GRAHAM

This is not your traditional Christmas sugar cookie recipe. This is a healthier recipe that’s still festive and nutritious, with oatmeal and dried cranberries. Substitute vegan egg replacer for eggs, and this is a vegan recipe.

Ingredients:

1 cup vegetable oil (or use butter)

2 cups coconut sugar (or use 1 cup each brown and cane sugar)

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 cups old fashioned oats

½ cup walnuts (chopped)

1 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the oil and sugar. Mix thoroughly. Beat in the eggs, then the vanilla extract. Set aside.

To make the cookies, drop two tablespoons of the mixture on an ungreased cookie sheet. Continue until the sheet is full. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.

The story of the single fin sling

matter. Sometimes however, the single fin is just what’s wanted, a “palate cleanser” as Parmentor puts it.

IT’S ALL SURFING

Three factors compelled me to start shaping my own boards in the mid ‘90s while in college in Santa Cruz.

One: I’d grown up watching Greg Pautsch, Bob Hurley and Mike Lyttle shaping in Newport, Costa Mesa and Huntington, and I loved the craft; two: new to Santa Cruz, I didn’t have the connections for surfboards I did growing up in Newport; and three: high-performance boards had gone so thin and narrow that they didn’t work well in the generally rolling and flat-faced waves up north (no matter the power in the swells up there).

Of these three reasons to start shaping my own boards, the design ethos of the time – the anemic blades that most surfboards had become – was the main factor driving my decision. The first board I made was a short, Dave Parmentor-inspired, wide-nosed three-fin I dubbed the “Mysto Moon Flyer” for the midnight blue paint job I put on the bottom, replete with silver stars and a crescent moon. The board worked pretty well and was a great antidote to the overly rockered boards of the day and allowed long projecting turns.

From there, I alternated between single fin and Bonzer designs, just loving the more dawn-out style of surfing (not dreaming that I’d one day live in the Santa Barbara/Ventura zone, ground zero for positioning and flow).

at

While stationed in the Philippines with my Seabee battalion, I’d managed to buy a vintage early 1970s single fin from an expat Aussie I met on a weekend off surfing. It was a 7’4” Brothers Neilson from

Queensland with a very-groovy logo of palm trees that looked like sativa stalks, and little figures carving up and down and inside of waves with huts on the beach, flowers and mushrooms sprouting. My first surfboard when I was a kid was a Russell Brotherhood single fin, so I had some background riding boards in that style, even if my focus soon became trying to surf more radically than those single fins allowed.

The Brothers Neilson accompanied me through my Navy years and ended up in Santa Cruz (where, as seems fitting in that town, it was stolen). I was still riding it from time to time, jumping off the cliff at Steamer Lane and somehow never losing it into the rocks. Yet for as flowing and “glidey” as the Brothers Neilson was, I wondered if I couldn’t make a more high-performance version. So began a quest to make a single fin shortboard, aiming to have the clean flow inherent in a single fin, along with improved performance capabilities.

It didn’t work. Or at least not in the way I’d hoped it would. What I’ve discovered is that the single fin, in my opinion, needs a certain amount of rail line and volume to perform optimally. And it’s never going to do what a three-fin surfboard can do – or a twin fin, for that

Images of the great Australian surfer Rabbit Bartholomew in the late 70s/ early 80s had me thinking the 6’0” single fin could really be the call – a board that would provide clean arcs, right in the hook of the wave. But it just seemed in the shorter versions I made, that the initial jump to board speed was lacking on single fins. The longer boards on the other hand (still maintaining a “pulled” nose and racy outline) had enough glide and inherent momentum to allow the flowing turns that are so pleasing on single fins.

I made a 7’2” that I brought with me to a point break in the far North of California, and that was one of the best surf experiences of my life. The remote setting, and absolutely perfect waves that gave ample speed to allow the board, allowed it to pivot and fly. I moved away from Santa Cruz to work at The Surfer’s Journal, and back deep in Southern California the shorter single fins didn’t make sense (even a 7’2”).

Since getting into the channel bottom design in the past four or five years, I’ve found that the single fin can be a good smaller board but that initial pick up is still an issue (not as quick under the feet as a multi-finned board), and I tend to make single fins 7’0” and above. These are “performance” boards I’m referring to, not longboards. The channels almost act as side fins and add an element of drive.

Most recently, I’m experimenting with a design that fits the wider plan shape of the old-school Twin Fins I make with a rounded tail block to keep maximum width throughout the surfboard – not unlike the Bob Simmons style keel fin boards (popularized by Richard Kenvin’s explorations with the 75-year-old design in La Jolla). The new design will have six channels and run with a “two-plusone” fin set up (a slightly larger center fin and two smaller side fins set in the outside-most channel bed). My buddies at True Ames fins in Goleta will have to assist in choosing the right set up!

The overall concept is what drives most of the boards I do, which is to say, I’m seeking maximum speed and clean turning capabilities. Other single fins are more spear-like and suited to the surf North of Point Conception, or over in Hawaii. Of course, the “neutral” (nothing fancy) 9-footers I’m doing are made to trim fast in smooth little peeling waves that we often have in this region. Happy holidays!

Carpinteria Middle School staff reported an “intruder” on campus, who had jumped one of the fences onto school property. The school went into lockdown.

Deputies arrived on scene and determined the suspect was a man with a warrant who had fled by police two days prior. He was seen entering a unit, where he was believed to still be inside.

Once the apartment was surrounded, announcements were made, with no response from inside. Deputies removed the screen from an open front window and moved the blinds to get a visual of the interior of the apartment. A male – not the suspect – was on the couch, and he opened the front door. Deputies entered and eventually located the suspect inside the bedroom. Once confronted, the man was taken into custody without incident.

He was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail for trespassing on school grounds, resisting/ delaying and possession of controlled substance.

Unless You Take Action To Protect Your Property, It May Be Sold At A Public Sale. If You Need An Explanation Of The Nature Of The Proceeding Against You, You Should Contact A Lawyer. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, cashier’s check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a cashier’s check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state will be held by the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. No cashier’s checks older than 60 days from the day of sale will be accepted.

Place of Sale: north door main entrance to County Courthouse, 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $883,482.91 Street Address or other common designation of real property: 260 E Mountain Drive Santa Barbara, CA 93108 A.P.N.: 013A-030A-019

The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. Notice To Potential Bidders: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Notice To Property Owner: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (877) 440-4460 or visit this Internet Web site www.mkconsultantsinc.com, using the file number assigned to this case 221117310. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Notice

To Tenant: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (877) 440-4460, or visit this internet website site www.tlssales.info, using the file number assigned to this case 221117310 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale.

Gaiety and gin at the Rincon Inn

During Prohibition, the Untouch ables of Rincon Point were supposedly the bootleggers, not the crime-fighters. According to lore, the county line ran through the middle of the Rincon Inn’s restaurant.

“When the Santa Barbara County Po lice arrived, we all rushed to the Ventura side of the house and thus couldn’t be pinched,” writes Sally Stanford, a bootleg ger around Ventura (later a San Francisco madam). “It was vice-versa when the Ventura County cops dropped by. You just couldn’t take a tumble in this place unless both county policemen arrived at the same time, and somehow this simultaneous action never occurred to them.”

Stanford tells that Keystone Cops story in her 1966 autobiography, “The Lady of the House.” It pops up in a few other places, too. In an unpublished memoir, the writer Silvia Dobson says that Robert W. Bates relayed it to her when she was living at Rincon Point in the 1960s. Henry M. Brown mentions it in a 1987 article in the “Grapevine,” the newsletter of the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History.

It’s a great tale, but it turns out to have some holes. To start with, Califor nia laws then (and now) let police cross county lines in pursuit of suspects. Also, Prohibition was enforced in large part by federal agents.

In addition, the hotel was built on property owned by Dr. Reuben W. Hill’s family in Santa Barbara County. If part of the structure extended into Ventura County, it was on somebody else’s land. In any event, a survey in 1939 found that the county line didn’t cross the building. It crossed a nearby road (close to the Model T at lower left, as seen in the ac companying photo).

Last, but hardly least, the Rincon Inn actually did get raided twice in 1920, the first year of Prohibition. Federal agents, along with sheriff’s officers from both counties, confiscated liquor and arrest ed hotel manager Harry Goldflam. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four months in the Santa Barbara County jail, though President Warren Harding commuted the sentence and released him three weeks early on grounds of poor health.

The Rincon Inn (first called the Hotel Rincon) developed a seedy reputation soon after it opened in 1915, and that reputation stuck. While Goldflam was in jail, Santa Barbara social workers decried the hotel’s late-night carousing. People need “a reasonable amount of gaiety” during evening hours, a representative of the group said, but “if there is too much gaiety there at midnight, we believe the public should at least know of it.”

Although the county line didn’t split the dining room, it did present a legal puzzle in 1919, before Prohibition. For a while, Goldflam didn’t know whether the hotel was still in Santa Barbara County or whether it had moved to Ventura County.

The legislature created Ventura County in a law enacted in 1872, with the bound ary “commencing on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, at the mouth of the Rincon Creek; thence following up the center of said creek.” In 1872, the creek on Rincon Point looped eastward toward Ventura and back. Dr. Hill and his family lived and farmed in the loop of the creek. A flood in 1914 eliminated the loop and destroyed the Hill farmhouse, but the county line stayed where it was. According to Richard Elgin, a profes

and new channels. In 1919, it looked as though the California legislature had accidentally changed the county line from the old channel to the new channel, which would have moved the hotel to

sional surveyor and author, property and boundary lines generally move when a creek changes course slowly through erosion but stay put when it changes abruptly in a flood.

In 1919, the California legislature passed a law to relocate some county lines. For good measure, the law set forth all county lines in the state, even the ones that weren’t being changed – including Ventura County.

The problem was that the words “Rincon Creek” carried a new meaning. By restating the creek as the county line,

the legislators might have accidentally moved the line from the 1872 creek path to the 1919 one. It would depend on how judges interpreted the law.

For weeks, according to the Carpinte ria Valley News , Goldflam didn’t know where his hotel was located. Then, for reasons unrelated to Rincon Creek, a court invalidated the 1919 law, and the Rincon Inn once again rested squarely in Santa Barbara County. Maybe that short-lived mystery ballooned into the tale of bootleggers foiling police by crossing the dining room.

Surveyor Elgin says that “there’s quite a bit of lore” about boundaries that bisect buildings, such as a liquor store strad dling a state line that can sell hard liquor on one side but only 3.2 beer on the other. Most of these tales seem to be myths, including the roadhouse on Rincon Point.

Stephen Bates is coauthor (with Vince Burns) of a pictorial history of Rincon Point, which is available at the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History and elsewhere. He is a professor of journalism at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

COURTESY OF OTA FAMILY According to popular lore, a Rincon Point hotel could serve alcohol during Prohibition because the county line ran through the dining room. When police from one county raided it, bartenders and patrons could avoid arrest by running to the other side. In this ca. 1924 photo, a hay wagon passes the Merryland Inn, as it was known then. A later survey found that the county line actually ran near the Model T at lower left, not through the building. COURTESY OF SANTA BARBARA COUNTY SURVEYOR The Rincon Creek flood of 1914 destroyed the Hills’ house and cut a new channel to the Pacific, as seen in this survey from 1915, but the old channel still served as the county line. The hotel stood in the triangle between the old Ventura County. COURTESY OF SUZANNE RHODES Dr. Reuben W. Hill and his family lived and farmed on the Santa Barbara County side of Rincon Creek. A flood in 1914 washed their house out to sea. Here, one of the Hill daughters, 18-year-old Carmelita, poses near the home site.

Carpinteria finds rhythm on basketball court

Carpinteria girls basketball had a busy week with five games in seven days. The Warriors picked up some quality wins together, led by junior Amarisse Camargo and freshman duo Jamaica Cook and Charlotte Cooney.

The Warriors got a great start to the week with a 53-35 home win against Thacher.

It was the home opener for Carpinteria, and Camargo gave the Warriors fans a good reason to cheer by scoring half of the team’s points in the first two quarters and giving Carpinteria a 26-20 halftime lead.

In the second half, everyone on the team got in on the action and the War riors stretched their lead to as many as 24 points in the fourth quarter. Camargo fin ished with 23 points, seven rebounds and four steals in the win. Cook, a freshman in her first year with the team, finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and three steals.

“I was happy with our overall team play on offense and defense,” said Car pinteria coach Henry Gonzales.

The Warriors got back on the court for a three-day tournament at Bishop Diego. Carpinteria stumbled out of the gate with two losses on the first day, against tourna ment host Bishop Diego and Santa Maria.

In the 52-42 loss to Santa Maria, the

Warriors fought back from a nine-point deficit in the first quarter to bring the game within three by halftime, led by eight points from Camargo and nine from Cooney and solid rebounding efforts by Cook and junior Lizbeth Alpizar.

The trio of Camargo, Cooney and Cook finished with 13, 15 and eight points in the loss.

The next day, Carpinteria got back into winning form with a 38-23 win over crosstown rival Cate. Gonzales said the win was a testament to the strong defensive mindset of the team, which was able to hold Cate under ten points in every period. Alpizar, Cook and senior Scarlet Torres combined for 10 steals in the win.

Carpinteria built on that momentum on the final day of the tournament with another decisive win over Coastal Christian, 54-32.

Coach Gonzales said the team was determined to end the tournament on a positive note heading into league play next week. The team was led once again by Camargo, who scored 10 of the first 15 points in the game, and freshman duo Cook and Cooney, who combined for all 13 of the Warriors’ second-

quarter points. At halftime, Carpinteria was up 28-8.

“We started with good energy, espe cially on defense which led to some easy baskets,” Gonzales said.

Coastal Christian battled back in the second half, cutting the lead to eight points at one point, before Carpinteria got back into rhythm and built the lead to over 20 points.

“Our trio of Jamaica Cook (18 points, 13 rebounds), Amarisse Camargo (17 points, 11 rebounds) and Charlotte Cooney (16 points, 5 rebounds) were instrumental in our success,” Gonzales said. “I’m proud of our team for their dedication, commitment, and willing ness to compete.”

Carpinteria is now 6-6 on the season and will begin league play this week against Nordhoff and Channel Islands.

Carpinteria soccer adjusts to heavy rain at Dos Pueblos

Heavy rain caused complications in last week’s soccer schedule, as Carpinte ria’s boys soccer team was scheduled to host Dos Pueblos on Friday, but due to an irrigation malfunction that rendered Carpinteria’s field unusable, the schools agreed instead to host both the boys and girls soccer matches on the same day at Scott O’Leary Stadium in Goleta.

According to Carpinteria athletic di rector Pat Cooney, this feat required an extraordinary amount of coordination between staff from both schools and among the Warrior faithful, who pitched in to ensure both teams were able to make the trip to Dos Pueblos and back.

After both game times were adjusted, referees reassigned to Dos Pueblos’ home pitch and transportation worked out, the

leaving the Warriors to play from behind for the rest of the match. Late in the game, the Chargers would seal the deal with a free-kick goal in the 89th minute for a 2-0 victory.

Carpinteria coach Freddy Martinez said that despite the loss, the Warriors fought hard in the midfield, led by the dual threat of seniors Sophie Mora and Ashley Verduzco.

“Coming into the match many thought the result was pre-determined since Dos Pueblos is Division 4 and we are Division 6,” Martinez said. “However, no one bothered to tell my girls that because they came out swinging from the opening whistle. We played press and we played aggressively, and I was really happy with the teams’ overall performance.”

The Warriors girls soccer squad is now 1-1-2 overall, and the team has one more non-league matchup against La Reina before starting league play against

Nordhoff this week.

“This was an excellent measuring stick of our current progress and I’m optimistic that we can be a contender in our league sooner rather than later,” Martinez said.

After the girls match, the two boys teams lined up under the lights for a cold and slippery Friday night matchup.

It was the Warriors’ second game of the year, after a 2-1 loss in the season opener against Ventura.

At Dos Pueblos, Carpinteria goalie Alex Silva held strong in front of the net, holding the Chargers scoreless, and one goal was enough for the Warriors to take the win, 1-0.

The win was first-year head coach Gerry Rodriguez’s first win for the War riors. Carpinteria boys soccer is now 1-1 overall, heading into league play this week with games against Nordhoff and Channel Islands.

Warriors water polo hits three-game win streak

After dropping the home opener against Royal, Coach Jon Otsuki and the Carpinteria girls water polo squad have now won three in a row, with two more wins last week over Foothill Tech and Pacifica.

At home against Foothill Tech, the Warriors started slow, with only two goals in the first quarter, before the team got back into the groove and took a 10-2 lead into halftime. In the second half, Carpinteria scored four more while allowing two goals for a 14-4 win.

Senior Ainslee Alexander led the Warriors scoring attack with five goals; junior Lilli Nemetz and sophomore Giulia Piccoletti each scored four and Monica Delgado scored one.

Seniors Taylor Classen and Kate Isaac played solid defense for Carpinteria, while goalie Erin Otsuki snagged three steals to go with her 13 saves in the win.

On Monday, Carpinteria hosted Pacifica for a rematch of a game just one week prior, in which the Warriors dominated the Tritons at their home pool in Oxnard 25-2.

In the rematch at Carpinteria Community Pool, the Warriors’ staunch defense held Pacifica to two goals for the second time in a row, and at least nine Carpinteria players scored in the 17-2 victory.

“By the end of the first quarter the starters got out to a fast start with a 6-0 lead and never looked back,” coach Otsuki said. “Younger players mixed in with the starters to get quality minutes.”

Seniors Ximena Briceno and Taylor Classen and sophomore Giulia Piccoletti tallied 3 goals each. Devyn Clayton and Monica Delgado added two each, and Vivi Medina, Francis Bennett, Kate Isaac and Lilli Nemetz each scored once. Goalie Erin Otsuki finished with nine blocks

After one more non-league match at Buena, the Warriors will open up league play at Nordhoff on Dec. 8.

Cate basketball makes tournament final

On the other side of town, Cate’s boys basketball has been on a roll, and won three tournament games in a row to make it to the Nordhoff Invitational Final against Ca marillo, led by the phenomenal play of senior double-double machine Babacar Pouye.

In the first three games, the Rams handled Villanova (59-51), Ventura (65-58) and Fillmore (58-48) to set up a tournament championship against Camarillo.

Against Villanova, junior Tyler Martinez and senior Jengus Ercil finished with 17 and 13 points, respectively, while Pouye racked up 20 points and 10 rebounds.

The match against Ventura was a shootout, with Martinez scoring a team high of 20 points and Pouye continuing his double-double streak with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

“This was one of the most exciting games I have been a part of at Cate and the hot shooting on both sides in the first quarter set this up to be a thriller,” said Cate coach Andrew Gil, who added that this was the first time in school history that the Rams beat Ventura.

Pouye continued to dominate in game three, with 20 points and 11 rebounds against Fillmore, but Gil said that the win served as a breakout game for sophomores Marcus Scudder and freshman Josh Butler, who proved that Cate has a lot of young talent to surround its star players.

In the tournament championship, Cate and Camarillo fought back-and-forth for much of the game, with Camarillo escaping with a close 62-59 win. Pouye finished the game with 25 points and 14 rebounds, was named along with Ercil to the AllTournament team.

“(It) feels great competing with a big school and well-coached program such as Camarillo,” Gil said. “We have the confidence to know we can play with anybody.”
