Rain advisory issued for countywide beaches

Carpinteria Community Church

Santa Barbara County Environmental Health Services issued a reminder to residents about potential health risks associated with storm water runoff at countywide beaches. Storm water is untreated rainwater that flows through the drain system into creeks, the ocean and other waterways. Contact with storm water while swimming or surfing may increase the risk for certain types of illnesses such as rashes, fever, chills, ear infections, vomiting and diarrhea.

E. J. Harrison turns 90

Harrison Industries will celebrate 90 years in business next year. Founded in 1932, the local trash and recycling hauler and processor will introduce new recycling programs in 2022, including weekly residential food waste collection and recycling as well as a program to ramp up the commercial recycling of food and other organic waste, the company said in a press release. “Food waste recycling is coming, and soon,” said Harrison’s Nan Drake. “It’s great news for the Earth, and it’s a great time for us all to become better recyclers.” Harrison, which began as a one-truck operation, now has 90,000 customers in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, including residents and businesses in the city of Carpinteria. The company’s new food waste recycling program complies with California Senate Bill 1383, which aims to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions by greatly decreasing the landfilled organic waste that generates it. According to the bill, organic waste in 2025 must be cut to 75% of 2014 levels. To accommodate the new law, Harrison has spent years working with its community partners Gold Coast Recycling and Agromin to build facilities in Ventura County to process and reuse food and other organic waste.

Search called off for commercial fisherman off Carpinteria Coast

A multi-day search for a man missing from a commercial fishing vessel found off Carpinteria’s coast was suspended on Friday, Dec. 10, according to the U.S. Coast Guard, Noozhawk has reported. The Coast Guard responded to a 38-foot trawler operating erratically off Loon Point on Dec. 8, finding the boat underway with no one on board, according to Noozhawk. A search for the boat’s fisherman, Vuong Tran, 62, was initiated.

CITY BEAT Initiative to re-designate Parking Lot #3 could complicate future developments city-wide, staff says

4  Thursday, December 16, 2021

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

Initiative member calls city report “strange reading” of initiative text

BY EVELYN SPENCE Monday saw another strained meeting on the controversial Surfliner Inn project, as city staff presented a detailed report on potential complications stemming from the Initiative to stop the inn from being built. The Initiative – known colloquially as “Save Our Downtown and Beach Parking Lot Initiative”– seeks to re-designate Parking Lot #3 to both prevent the Surfliner Inn project from moving forward and prevent any future development at that spot. But the Initiative would also amend the city’s General Plan, changing the definition of open space recreation – this, city-staff pointed out, could have severe potential implications to future city-wide projects. According to Community Development Director Steve Goggia and city legal counsel Jena Shoaf Acos, the Initiative’s ambiguity and inconsistencies in its language could affect all future city-wide projects. “It is amending a city-wide land-use designation,” Shoaf Acos said. “The Initiative does not create a separate land-use designation or zoning for (the Surfliner Inn project parcels). It would be clearer if that had occurred.” Goggia said that the Initiative’s language also presents issues with future parking developments within the city, as the language only deals with “existing” parking rather than future parking.

“Parking is another one of the issues that depending on how the Initiative is interpretated, could go one way or another,” he said. City Council members expressed concerned with the possible implications of the Initiative presented in the report, although Vice Mayor Al Clark challenged city staff’s interpretation of the Initiative. Councilmember Gregg A. Carty added

“It’s already clear that (the Surfliner Inn) is going to become a legal issue. And it’s sad.”

– Councilmember Gregg A. Carty

that he is concerned about the Initiative, stating, “it’s not just about a hotel or no hotel. There’s a lot more to it.” “The people that signed this petition to get the Initiative on the ballot, they were just thinking hotel or no hotel,” he said. “there’s a lot more to it (…) It’s already clear that it’s going to become a legal issue. And it’s sad.” Public commenter Amrita Salm, a community member who has been vocally fighting against the inn and collecting signatures for the Initiative, challenged

e h t e v a S ! e t Da

the idea that the Initiative could complicate future developments outside of the Surfliner Inn project. She read aloud a letter from an attorney, that had been sent to all councilmembers prior to Monday’s meeting. “’A key conclusion appears in the summary (…) the proponent circulated this Initiative with the goal of giving the public a voice on the Surfliner Inn project or any other private commercial (development) on Parking Lot #3 in the future,’” she quoted. “’While the report identifies some ambiguities, these are largely the result of a strange reading of the letter’s text.’” Other public commenters expressed their concern about complications from the Initiative, such as Mike Wondolowski, president of Carpinteria Valley Association, who spoke strongly against amendments to the city’s General Plan. “The unintended consequences are just not worth it,” Wondolowski said. “Intent doesn’t matter. Only the language of the Initiative does (…) collateral damage to the General Plan in this Initiative is unacceptable.” Ted Rhodes, president of the Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs, expressed concern about how the Initiative could affect the bluffs. “It does raise a critical question,” he commented. “I’m puzzled that we’re using an Initiative to redefine what open space recreationally is.” After locals spent months collecting

“The unintended consequences are just not worth it… Intent doesn’t matter. Only the language of the Initiative does (…) collateral damage to the General Plan in this Initiative is unacceptable.”

the required number of signatures against the project, the Initiative is now with the city clerk and county staff, who are confirming the validity of the petition’s signatures. Once they are done, the issue will be brought back to the city council, who must then either accept the Initiative in its entirety – effectively preventing the Surfliner Inn from being built at the current proposed location – or place the Initiative on the November 2022 ballot. If the Initiative is voted in by the voters of Carpinteria, the matter would then go to the Coastal Commission.

Council members congratulated Iltze Alvarado, center, on Monday for winning the library’s card design contest.

The Carpinteria High School boys water polo team was also commended for making it to the CIF championships in a historical feat. The team took a photo with the council, who offered congratulations on the boys’ win. Mayor Nomura called the season “out-

standing,” while Councilmember Carty said the win was a “big deal,” joking that the city now needed to “start budgeting for some bleachers” for the pool.

DUI arrests

In response to questions asked at a

previous council meeting, Carpinteria Lieutenant Butch Arnoldi offered a report on DUI arrests within the city. Between Jan. 1, 2021 and Monday, Dec. 13, 58 DUI arrests were reported within the city, a severe spike from last year. Of those, 23 have been Carpinteria residents; 12 were Santa Barbara County residents; and 23 were from other counties, Arnoldi said. The average age of arrestees was 39. In response to a question from Councilmember Carty about the potential causes for the rise, Arnoldi said “I don’t think you can put your finger on any one thing. I think it’s just a combination of many, many things.” He warned Carpinterians against driving drunk, stating that “what they’re doing is causing more danger to themselves and many others.” “There’s no reason (for DUIs) in today’s society,” he said. “Drink responsibily, and have someone take care of you.”

Annual Work Plan

The council approved an in-person meeting to discuss the annual work plan for Jan. 22, 2022.

Some non-city residents mistakenly mailed election maps

Some residents outside of the city were mistakenly mailed election re-districting maps, city staff reported at Monday’s meeting. During Monday’s meeting – another public hearing on re-districting within the city of Carpinteria – City Manager Dave Durflinger said the city has received a “good response” in district-map feedback from both digital maps and paper maps that had been mailed out to all city residents. However, because the mailings were mailed out via postal code, rather than along city limits, some residents in the Santa Monica Gardens neighborhood received city maps implying they could vote in the next election, when in fact, they are ineligible to do so. “We will be sending follow-up mail to that neighborhood,” city program manager Olivia Uribe-Mutal said.

California reinstitutes indoor mask mandate as Covid-19 cases sharply rise Santa Barbara County closes two Covid-19 testing sites.

The statewide indoor mask mandate has returned, the California Department of Public Health announced Monday, due to a sharp increase in the number of Covid-19 cases since Thanksgiving. The mandate kicked in on Wednesday and will last until Jan. 15, 2022. According to the department, the seven-day case average across the state has increased by 47%, and hospitalizations have increased by 14%. This does not change the mandate in Santa Barbara County, which is already under its own local indoor mask mandate. “Our collective actions can save lives this holiday season. We are already seeing a higher level of transmission this winter and it is important to act now to prevent overwhelming our busy hospitals so we can provide quality health care to all Californians,” Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, CDPH director and state public health officer, said in a press release. “All Californians should get vaccinated and receive their booster. Getting your whole family up to date on vaccination is the most important action you can take to get through the pandemic and to protect yourself from serious impacts from the virus and its variants. Testing and masking remain important tools in slowing the spread,” he added. The mandate now requires that all in California attending a mega event – such as sporting events or concerts – must provide proof of vaccination, a negative antigen Covid-19 test take within one day of the event, or a negative PCR test taken

within two days of the event. The department also issued a travel advisory, noting that all travelers entering California must get tested for Covid-19 within three to five days after arriving. This applies to everyone regardless of vaccination status. “Vaccines and these temporary measures will allow friends and families to safely spend the holidays together and will add critical layers of protection to keep people safe,” Aragón said. As of Tuesday, 63.9% of Santa Barbara County residents are fully vaccinated, compared to 67.9% of eligible county residents – those 5 years old and up. Between Dec. 3 and Dec. 9, the county reported 542 new cases of Covid-19, for 483 active cases, 46,363 total cases and 554 deaths. There were five new deaths reported during that same period, with 38 hospitalizations and 11 in the ICU. The majority of cases during that same period were seen in the 30-49 age group, at 186, followed by the 0-17 age group at 141 cases. In the week prior – Nov. 26 through Dec. 2 – the majority of cases were seen in the unvaccinated population, with 299 cases among the unvaccinated, and 121 in the vaccinated population. Santa Barbara County is closing two Covid-19 testing sites. The Goleta Valley Community Center will close its testing site on Thursday, Dec. 30, while the American Medical Response Central Training Center in Buellton closed on Dec. 9. “The testing landscape has changed

significantly since the beginning of the pandemic,” Van Do-Reynoso, Director for the County Public Health Department, said in a release. “We will remain responsive to the needs of our community and encourage anyone who needs to be tested to do so at County testing sites, pharmacies, or with their healthcare provider.” 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 vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, visit For more information from the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, call 211 and press #4 or email the county at PHDDOC.

No on new development

Thursday, December 16, 2021  7


In the United Kingdom, the small Welsh town of Fairbourne bears a striking similarity to Carpinteria. Due to sea level rise, the government will not be able to afford to keep defending the town. In about 20 years, Fairbourne will become the UK’s first “climate refugees.” The government’s plan is simply to move them away and abandon the village. This has caused much angst and anger at the government for the decision to basically abandon them. Because of our geographical comparison, this situation should be followed very closely by our city and government officials, as this coincides very alarmingly with a recycled Bluffs 1 development called “The Farm.” “The Farm” project is the same old plan with the same unaffordable homes and apartments, a hotel and restaurant that is not needed, lots of low-paying jobs, more traffic, noise and pollution, an enormous strain to our infrastructure and not to mention the closing of the Tee-Time Golf Center. “The Farm” is the reincarnation of new owner Matt Cooper, CEO of Carp Bluff LLC. Bluffs 1 is the proposed project site and where Tee-Time is located. The concern is not only with losing Tee-Time, but losing that land that could be used for our “climate refugees.” Bluffs 1, along with Bluffs 0 (Venoco property), are both considered likely “managed retreat” sites. It is public knowledge that the neighborhoods on the ocean side of the


“It is a simple decision for me that the city must declare a moratorium on all large projects due to sea-level rise and climate change. ” ––Bob Franco railroad tracks are the most vulnerable to sea-level rise and these two parcels will be crucial for their possible relocation. It is a simple decision for me that the city must declare a moratorium on all large projects due to sea-level rise and climate change. We need to pressure our government for urgency, openness and the will that is needed or we will share the same fate as Fairbourne.

Fate of Parking Lot #3 must be put to a vote

The key conclusion of the city staff’s report on the forthcoming Initiative to Save Our Downtown and Beach Parking Lot is direct and simple: “If adopted, the

Initiative would preclude development of the Surfliner Inn Project.” Had the mayor and city council responded appropriately to the demonstrably clear majority of voices of Carpinterians over the past five years, or had they wisely chosen to hold an advisory vote on the issue of leasing our public parking lot to a private developer, Carpinterians would not have been forced to bring forth an Initiative on the matter. Fourteen teams volunteered to manage the Initiative petitions, and Carpinterians lined up to sign. As Mayor Nomura concluded at Monday night’s City Council meeting: “Ambiguities in the (Initiative language) have been argued in both directions. However, as we move forward with this one, in fact, if there are (ambiguities), we will be able to rectify those before or after the passing of the initiative. Ideally this is the way democracy works.” The fate of Public Parking Lot #3 and the construction of the Surfliner Inn is something on which the voters are ultimately going to decide.

Carpinteria needs a senior center

Letters to SANTA Hey, Kids!

It’s the time of year when Santa Claus is making his list and checking it twice.

The creation of a center that serves our entire community would be great. The letter written by Rosalyn Kahute (CVN, Vol. 28, No. 12) has many excellent ideas for activities for seniors. I work out at the Gym Next Door. After discussing this with the members, I realize how necessary a place to come together with activities for all is, and what a great asset it would be to our community. I taught in Santa Barbara for 27 years and created a partnership with many businesses in Santa Barbara, including Samarkand, the retirement community, as well as the Rotary Club. During that time, I saw many great programs that involved the community, for all ages – seniors, businesses and students were all involved. The rich and rewarding relationships that evolved with these partnerships were fantastic. I think a senior/community center would be a

great asset for our community that will benefit everyone.

Lost faith in Biden

I have genuinely tried to appreciate Biden. I have failed, and have concluded he is both a poor president and not a passionate human being. All incoming presidents face challenging situations, but Biden created total human disasters in Afghanistan and at our southern border. It bothers me that he totally ignores the suffering he created. In what appears to involve total blindness, he has taken our country from energy independence to being dependent on OPEC and other less-than-reliable countries for oil, when we have energy resources right here in our own backyard. He has even pleaded with OPEC to increase production to help control prices in the U.S. while our own production sources remain shut down, creating considerable unemployment among workers crucial to our economy. He is moving much too fast in his desire to eliminate fossil fuels. His economic policies are badly flawed and have caused much of the present inflation. I’ve done research on Biden’s family. His son Hunter and others in the family are rich due to Biden, and many have questionable backgrounds. Here’s what I think: Biden simply lied when saying he knew nothing about Hunter’s sleazy situations; in the 1972 tragic accident that killed his wife and daughter, Joe said they were killed by a drunk driver, a complete lie; the other driver was not drunk, and Joe’s wife was at fault; and without a shred of meaningful evidence, Joe called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist and said the beleaguered border control agents used whips on migrants. By convoluted reasoning, he blames all of his problems on Donald Trump. There is more, but word limits set in. This is America. Those who agree with me, please realize we have an opportunity to start “getting things right” with the 2022 elections. I have total respect for those who disagree.

Advisory Notice on Student Mental Health The faculty and staff at Carpinteria Middle School and Carpinteria High School will be receiving the LivingWorks Start online training for suicide prevention during the months of December 2021 and January 2022.




On Dec. 7, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy issued a public health advisory on the mental health challenges confronting youth, calling it “an emerging crisis exacerbated by pandemic hardships.” According to the advisory, “symptoms of depression and anxiety have doubled during the pandemic, with 25% of youth experiencing depressive symptoms and 20% experiencing anxiety symptoms.” In early 2021, “emergency department visits in the U.S. for suspected suicide attempts were 51% higher for adolescent girls and 4% higher for adolescent boys, compared to early 2019.” The Carpinteria Unified School District provides a tiered system of student mental health support, with school-based mental health teams at every school site, social-emotional learning curriculum, school psychologists, school counselors and school-based mental health therapists from Family Service Agency (FSA), Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (CADA) and Hospice. The district’s mental health team, facilitated by Special Education Director Karla Curry, meets on a monthly basis to discuss the mental health challenges our students face and how we provide mental health support in our schools. This year, the CUSD Mental Health Team has planned for the district’s first suicide screening for seventh and ninth grade students over the last two weeks of January 2022, in order to create a safety network in our school community so that students thinking of suicide are identified early on and kept safe. Additionally, the California Department of Education (CDE) and San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) have partnered with LivingWorks Start to provide free online suicide prevention training to all middle and high school leaders, teachers, staff and students. LivingWorks Start is a 90-minute online training program that equips people with the skills and confidence to recognize and respond when someone is thinking of suicide and to be able to help to keep them safe.

We are so grateful for the office coordinators at our schools who ensure that all staff and families are supported and well-served: Leti Garcia, from Canalino/Family School; Heather Cushnie, at Summerland; Liz Uribe, at Aliso; Cruz Martinez, Soni Rodriguez; Beatrice Sibija, at Carpinteria High School; and Florence White and Monica Botello at pupil services.

Student and Family Vaccines

The Santa Barbara County Public Health provided a free Covid-19 vaccine and flu clinic for students and their families on Thursday, Dec. 9 at the Carpinteria Middle School Gym.

SB County Public Health

On Dec. 3, the Santa Barbara County Health Officer extended the Health Officer Order that requires the use of masks in indoor public settings. This order requires all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings with limited exceptions. Additionally, this health order aligns with California state guidance for students in grades K-12 actively participating in school-based extracurricular activities such as sports and band. Students may participate in indoor activities without a face covering if regular testing is conducted. CHS basketball players are tested weekly to play without masks.

CMS Science Classes

Carpinteria Middle School sixth grade students completed several exciting labs related to living things, beginning with cells, and leading to complex body systems. Hands on labs tackled identifying the characteristics of living and non-living things, and students gathered evidence to show how the body maintains chemical balance and homeostasis. Students explored plant and animal reproduction, including the dissection of locally donated flowers/lilies. Following the dissections, they designed and engineered flowers adapted to pollinators and discovered the most effective methods for dispersing seeds to increase chances for survival and reproduction. Currently students are conducting a three-day lab that simulates six of the major body systems: the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, nervous, muscular and excretory systems. In seventh grade science classes, students have been exploring the properties

“The CUSD Mental Health Team has planned for the district’s first suicide screening for seventh and ninth grade students over the last two weeks of January 2022...” of matter. After learning about how scientific theories develop over time, students learned about the periodic table and how atoms interact. Under a microscope, they explored extended chemical structures such as crystals. They then learned about states of matter through hands on multiday labs, investigating the properties of solids, liquids, and gasses under different conditions. They also made ice cream from scratch using their understanding of changes of states of matter, the freezing point of a liquid and energy exchange through exothermic reactions. Students continued their exploration of matter by learning about the properties and indicators of chemical reactions. The unit finished with a lab, during which students combined solutions to gather evidence to determine if a chemical reaction occurred. In eighth grade science, students started the year discovering how to use the scientific process though inquiry-based lessons. One topical activity focused on the effectiveness of face masks, where students attempted to blow out a candle wearing a variety of face masks. They also used scientific processes to create elephant toothpaste, where the amount of hydrogen peroxide used to make the most foam served as the variable. Students also just finished a unit on Newton’s Laws of Motion. They used their engineering skills and worked as a team to make functional roller coasters from foam insulation and marbles, using a budget of a million dollars in imitation money to purchase all the necessary equipment for their project. Students also used Newton’s laws to simulate the landing of the Mars Rover by fabricating a device to hold an egg and keep it intact when dropped from a height of 10 meters. As they move into studying the formation of the solar system, students will use claim, evidence and reasoning to investigate the Big Bang Theory. They will use magnets and iron filings to represent gravitational pull and make a model of the planets to calculate a scale model of each planet’s diameter and the distances from the sun and each other.

A large construction crew is quickly moving along the CHS Administration building. The walls and roof sheathing will be complete by winter break. The interior furniture and finish selections have been finalized and will be ready to order early next month. Dry weather has allowed for good progress at Summerland school. Weather permitting, the soil work should be done by the end of winter break – good news for the schedule! The Measure U team meets weekly to discuss current and Summer 2022 projects. Our architect, Robert Robles, is working to prepare bid documents for the last phase of Canalino Modernization and the Main school paint and roofing project for early 2022.

The Westerlay Orchids holiday party is an annual highlight for the community. With the showroom glittered with shimmering lights and bestin-class blooms, Santa Claus finds his magical corner by the tree and fireplace to hold court. Kids of all ages spent time with Mr. Claus, letting him know their good deeds and most cherished wishes. The North Pole confirmed on Wednesday morning that all children were nice and should expect presents.

Operation Holiday Cheer spreads at Girls Inc. PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON Over the weekend at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, families had the chance to go shopping for the holidays – only this time, the gifts were free, courtesy of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria and Cox Communications. The organizations offered more than 100 families roughly 385 holiday gifts, to help support those who have been struggling during the pandemic. The day also included lunch and a visit with Santa Claus.

Holiday cheer in abundance at kids craft fair


Carpinteria kids craft fair on Saturday had holiday cheer bottled, as more than 15 families – all with kids between the ages of seven and 16 – showed off their talents and snagged some holiday profits. Kids sold unique items, such as ornaments, jewelry, baked goods and more, offering shoppers the chance to buy last-minute holiday present. This is the first year the event took place. Kati Smith previously told CVN that the event was organized to encourage kids’ holiday and entrepreneurial Ashton Nystrom, left, cornered the market on ornaments, melting crayons to create bright colors. At right, a crowd of spirit.

Turn up the heat this year with Mexico’s version of egg nog, Rompope. Ingredients

4 cups whole milk 1 cup sugar 1 pinch of baking soda 1 stick of cinnamon 2 cloves 12 egg yolks 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg 1 tsp. vanilla 1/2 cup rum

Mix milk, cinnamon, cloves, sugar, nutmeg and baking soda in a saucepan and stir. Place saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Turn off the heat and remove saucepan from stove to cool. While milk is cooling, beat egg yolks until they are a pale yellow. Slowly pour the egg mix into the milk and stir. Place saucepan back on stove and turn the heat to medium-high, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes, or until the mixture starts to become thick. Remove from heat and pass through a sieve to remove cinnamon sticks and cloves. Add rum. Put in container with lid, cool and refrigerate. Serve sprinkled with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg.

It’s been around since the 16th century. Yes, it’s an Elizabethean drink! The egg nog latte was born in 1986 at a coffeeshop owned by Starbucks founder Howard Schultz. The word

nog comes from noggin, a small wooden mug. In Russian it’s called “kogel mogel” and is thought to cure sore throats.

Cate students collect 400 lbs of food in drive

Led by student Ellie Tunnell, Cate School students collected nearly 400 pounds of food in a holiday food drive. The food will be given to Genuine Concern for Others, Inc., and the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. Students Lylie Bechtel, Jengus Ercil and Paige Rawiszer also helped organize the drive, putting up flyers and working with local organizations. The students were assisted by Will Holmes, Cate’s director of community engagement, who helped weigh and deliver the food. “I’m really interested in food insecurity myself, and I have been working with Santa Barbara Food Rescue to get all of our food waste at Cate to local nonprofit organizations,” Tunnell said. “It is something that I have been interested in for a while, but I have never run a food drive before.” “It’s a rewarding feeling collecting so much food and seeing all of the pieces come together (…) It took a lot of effort, but it was so doable. Everyone in the community wants to help out, and all of the people we connected with were so excited about students getting involved. It was great that it was so successful in the end, and now we have the experience to do more in the future,” she added. Tunnell said she hopes to run another food drive in the spring.

Why is everyone asking me for money and what’s with Christmas trees? CVN

THE SEAWITCH SAYS AMY OROZCO Happy holidays! If you’re feeling a bit like a Grinch lately, you’re not the only one. For many, the most wonderful time of the year equals the most stressful time. Read on to see what some of us are finding challenging as we gear up for 2022. Tis the season! Dear Amy O., I’ve been lucky enough to live in Carpinteria for close to two years. My good fortune includes being able to retire early, being single in my early 50s, and having the leisure time and resources to spend as I wish. Don’t get me wrong, I love my new hometown, but it seems I am constantly asked for money. Not by the needy or unhoused, but by friends and neighbors on behalf of an organization or a cause. While I’m not anti-philanthropy, I’m taken aback by the requests that seem rooted in socializing rather than helping. As you can imagine, at this time of year the “asks” are magnified. What’s the best way to decline? I don’t want to offend. Signed, Mystified Not Misanthropic




to answer that question for yourself. This time of year can be exhausting. Let’s all remember that and try to think the best of others and situations. Also, how about looking at the “asks” as an invitation to get involved and know your community better.

Dear Amy O., I can’t think of a better place to walk, run or bike than the flat valley floor of Carpinteria – truly a God-given paradise. Some of the joy that our Creator’s landscape brings me is lost when I see all the recyclable litter without a proper receptacle. As a true Christian, I find Christmas trees not in the spirit of the season at all. That’s not why I’m writing you. My reason for writing is how upsetting it is that very few residents in the multi-family complex where I live follow the guidelines for recycling these trees (for which there is a proper receptacle). I feel doubly offended with the Christmas trees and the lack of recycling. Call it silly, but I also feel bad for the trees. Other than praying, do you have any advice? Signed, O! Tannenbaum, Oy Vey Dear O! Tannenbaum, Oy Vey, Writing to the local paper’s advice columnist is a great start to bringing attention to recycling. It looks like your prayers are in motion, so let’s look at some hands-on, brass-tacks solutions. Could the instructions for Christmas tree disposal be better communicated? Are easily readable and eye-catching flyers posted in appropriate places, such as community bulletin boards, mailbox clusters or on the tree receptacle itself? If residents receive a monthly state-

ment for association dues, could a reminder be included? Share your concern with the HOA board or property management company. I’m sure they are equally frustrated, if not more so. If you rent, your landlord may need to interface. Looking at the bigger picture, a letter or opinion piece to the local paper may help. (It’ll help you in that you are taking some sort of action, at any rate.) Take your concern to social media. Contact City Hall. The waste management company may have some suggestions. Please don’t feel you need to solve this problem on your own. That’s not what I’m trying to say. I only want to underscore the importance of having one’s voice heard. Some people are lazy, others are scofflaws, and still others just don’t bother reading instructions. There are some too who may not be physically able to hoist a tree to its appointed final resting place. If you are aware of a particular neighbor who doesn’t follow the tree recycling guidelines, ask why. Maybe an offer to deposit the tree correctly, after de-tinseling and de-ornamenting, will fix things. You note in your letter that you don’t find Christmas trees part of the spirit of the season. I’m hoping you find kindness, generosity and tolerance as part of the season’s spirit and carry it throughout the year. I’d like to join you with that. P.S. I don’t call it silly. I feel sad about the trees, too, and about our disposable mindset in general. Former CVN editor Amy Marie Orozco loves living in Carpinteria, including all the sometime socially sticky situations happening in our seaside setting. Along with giving advice (only when asked), Amy O. also edits Cannabis by the Sea Magazine. Have a question for her? Email it to

Dear Mystified Not Misanthropic, You are not alone. Many of us feel the same frustration and awkwardness, especially when family funds are tight, and we can’t take the easy way out and just donate. The thing about easy way outs, though, is they usually perpetuate behaviors or situation. “What’s the best way to decline?” you ask. A “Thanks for thinking of me but I can’t” can do the trick. Say it with a smile. “Sounds like a great cause. Sorry, I can’t help right now.” Done. No explanation necessary. But (you knew a “but” was coming) maybe part of you being taken aback by all the requests is because you’re uncertain about how you feel about these requests, or if it’s something you can sensibly participate in or not. Does your personal budget have a line item for Charitable Donations? What causes do you support or decidedly not support? (This is your business, and nobody else’s, except maybe your CPA’s and the IRS’s.) When we make conscious decisions about our life, things tend to fall in place and become easier. Could it be all the “asks” are overwhelming because you don’t know what and how much is appropriate for you to give? When we are clear on our choices, we can be clear on how we want to act. Many Carpinterians find the boundaries of nonprofit work blurred in our community. Is the project caring or part of an organization’s marketing plan or a publicity grab or a write-off for a great party? Becoming more involved is a way

Ratty is a surfer


IT’S ALL SURFING CHRISTIAN BEAMISH Ratty, the wood rat in “The Wind in the Willows,” famously says, “…there is nothing—absolutely nothing—half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” I am certain Ratty would’ve added “or on surfboards,” had he the chance to try the Sport of Kings. Because the wood rat, with his love for his river in the English countryside, has all the characteristics of a surfer: skill on his chosen craft, awareness of changing conditions on his local waters, and, as with the best wave riders, an ability to adapt to the circumstances at hand — not to mention his easy rapport with any character he comes in contact with, including the more dangerous fellows. “In or out of ‘em, it doesn’t matter,” Ratty continues in his ode to boats. “Nothing seems really to matter, that’s the charm of it.” Now, if actual surfers could adapt Ratty’s attitude — the idea of simply “messing about” — we would be better off for it. But having exhausted my “Wind in the Willows “as-metaphor-forthe-surfing-life, I’ll shift focus to a recent run I made up north. My buddy in Santa Cruz needs an intro to his photo book, and I spent the weekend after Thanksgiving at his place going over the topics to cover. He has spent time in the Basque country, and influenced by the traditions of the region, he often cooks on an open fire, coating cuts of meat in olive oil and salt on a grill set over the flame. We ate steaks this way with bread, and drank beers and it was elemental and delicious, although a nice pinot may have been a better compliment than the Modelos. Leaving town here a couple of hours before dawn to drive up to his place, I stopped to surf on the Central Coast well north of Point Conception soon after first light. The waves were double overhead, powerful and fairly clean. Larger sets roared through in fifteen-minute intervals, closing-out the small cove I was surfing, which wasn’t really a cove so much as a slightly deeper notch between a rock-shelf crag and a shoal area of rock heads to the south. I was riding a 6’5” channel-bottom twin fin — a design I’ve been shaping a lot in the past couple of years, but truthbe-told haven’t been riding much myself. The board paddles well, and I was able to dodge the larger sets washing through and snag a few of the cleaner ones breaking inside, off the submerged end of the rock crag. But even these inside waves were thick and powerful, pushing the board too fast, and the rides were more akin to skimming along the surface rather than the controlled banking and flowing of surfing in rhythm. Although it’s a 15-minute walk from the trailhead to the surf break, when I got back to the van I decided to grab a bigger board I’d brought and trot back down for another go. The board I grabbed is a 9’1” big wave gun, a stiletto of a surfboard, a mere 19-inches wide and carved with six deep channels through the tail, ballasted by a single fin of Hawaiian design. My thought was that I’d swing into those larger waves and tap into Pacific Rim power, even if simply running a clean

A 9’1” that might have served the author well with better timing. “Whether you get away, or whether you don’t;” Ratty says of boat life, “whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you get anywhere at all, you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular…” Yes indeed, Ratty is a surfer.

“There was nothing to do of course but paddle like hell, and I concentrated on breathing evenly and digging my strokes in as deeply and efficiently as I could, as a very tall wave advanced upon me.” line with minimal turns. I picked my way across the rock crag once more, sheltering behind a high point with the 9’1” under arm as several big swaths of whitewater washed through, before leaping into the froth and scratching for deep water. Initially, I thought I had a clean run for open water but as I crested a medium-sized (which is to say still well-overhead) wave mid-cove, I caught my first glimpse of another of those rogue sets lining up across the whole reef complex before me. There was nothing to do of course but paddle like hell, and I concentrated on breathing evenly and digging my strokes in as deeply and efficiently as I could, as a very tall wave advanced upon me. And by very tall, I mean as high as the top of the second-story windows at The Palms downtown on Linden — not the biggest waves these shores can dish out, but plenty big anyway. I suppose the saving grace is that while not soft by any means, the waves also were not going “top-tobottom,” not doing the death-imploder routine that some of these breaks can offer up. I crested the first one just barely, and came down the backside of the wave still paddling hard as the next stood taller still, feathering out ahead of me. Seeing that I would not make it over, I paddled up the face as far as I dared then slipped off the side of the board and pushed it seaward, putting myself into a somewhat lame-feeling starfish pose just in the face of the wave, thinking somehow maybe I would make myself into a sea-anchor and not get sucked over as it broke. The maneuver worked insofar as I was not sucked back-over, but I’d lost all momentum and I didn’t bother trying to reel my board in by its long, big-wave tether afterwards, since the next wave, even bigger still, was now breaking a further 50-feet in front of me. I was almost scared for a moment, then reminded myself that being scared wasn’t going to help, and managed two breaths that didn’t feel sufficiently deep or oxygenating, but were all the breath I was going to get. The rinsing wasn’t too violent as these things go, but I surfaced gasping in sea foam, desperate to grab my board for something to float on. Two more big ones washed over me, each of them pushing me further in, and I caught the third line of whitewater, aiming the big board back into the corner of the cove to safety. Naturally, the ocean went flat for a good while after all that power had washed through, but I’d been chastened, and took my bad timing as a sign that

I was not sufficiently in sync with the energy of the morning to earn my place amongst those waves. I walked back up the trail afterwards, observing the easy opening I’d have had if I’d waited just five minutes longer out on the crag before leaping in. The best wave of the morning then formed up as I crested the bluff trail — pouring open over the reef and coursing across just perfectly.

Put in the work: Carpinteria’s girls water polo team takes training very seriously as they prepare for the rest of the season.

The Warriors’ girls water polo team jumped out to a three-game win streak to start the season at 3-0, heading into a big road test against the Santa Ynez Pirates. Carpinteria has found success early in the season thanks to the strong play of Alex Zapata, Ainslee Alexander and Briana Rodriguez on offense, and junior goalie Erin Otsuki on defense. Alexander and Zapata have each scored 15 goals in the first four games, while Rodriguez has tallied nine goals so far. Erin Otsuki has had two games with 12 blocks and has become a force in the net for the Warriors. Alexander, Zapata, Rodriguez, Jocelyn Pena, Serena Smith, Natalia Perez, Guilia Piccoletti, Monica Delgado, Lilli Nemetz and Kate Isaac all scored in a 19-3 victory over crosstown rival Cate. Carpinteria has also played incredible team offense and defense all year, with several Warriors having multiple-steal games, and ten team members scoring in the first four games. The girls water polo program is following in the footsteps of the boys program, which just won its first-ever CIF Championship this year. Heading into the road game at Santa Ynez, Carpinteria was feeling confident riding the undefeated streak, but faced a strong and consistent Pirates squad. In a close back-and-forth battle with seven lead changes, with neither team led by more than two goals – the Warriors weren’t able to hold on and were handed their first loss of the season with a final score of 11-12. Carpinteria started off strong, coach Jon Otsuki said, but gave up two costly penalty shots in the first quarter which left the Warriors down 3-5. Zapata showed senior leadership in the second quarter, exploding for four of her five total goals to send the game into halftime with the Warriors back on top, 8-7. The third quarter was more of the same, with each team cashing in on a

series of scoring runs and Carpinteria heading into the final period with a tworun lead. In the fourth quarter, Santa Ynez was able to hold the Warriors to zero goals, while being persistent on the offensive end and notching three goals and securing the victory. The 11-12 loss was the Warriors’ first of the season, snapping the undefeated three-game win streak. Zapata led Carpinteria with five goals, while Rodriguez followed close behind with three of her own. Alexander scored twice and Piper Clayton added in with another goal. Erin Otsuki put in a strong effort in goal, blocking 12 shots in the loss. The team is now 3-1 overall. The Warriors will have a chance to face the Pirates one more time in a regular season home game on Jan. 17. Carpinteria will take a break in the action for finals week, and will be back in the pool Friday in Simi Valley to face Royal.

26  Thursday, December 16, 2021



Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California Freshman Marcus Scudder had his best game of his career so far, leading all scorers with 15 points, while senior Babacar Pouye had 12 points. Cate starts league play this week and will host a competitive Santa Ynez team at 6 p.m. on Thursday. The Rams’ girls basketball team also won two back-back games, defeating crosstown rivals Carpinteria 33-19 and dominating Laguna Blanca for a 35-5 victory.

Carpinteria boys basketball wins one, loses one

At the Pacifica Tournament in Oxnard, Carpinteria High School boys basketball team lost to Trinity Classical 24–72. Jared Zapata led the Warriors with seven points, while Matt Garcia and Kainoa Glasgow each had six points. Against Hillcrest Christian, the Warriors earned their third win of the year with a 48-38 victory. Glasgow was the top scorer with 16 points and two assists. Garcia has a great all-around game with 15 points, four steals and four assists. Sebastian Campurano came up big with 15 rebounds to go with his 6 points in the win. Carpinteria is now 3-8 overall, and will return to the hardwood at 7 p.m. on Dec. 20 against Grace Brethren in the Simi Valley Tournament.

Warriors girls basketball has rough time at Nordhoff tournament

Carpnteria High School’s girls basketball team headed to Nordhoff to play four games over three days of competition. The Warriors struggled to find consistency on offense and took three tough losses in a row. On day one, the Warriors faced the home team Nordhoff Rangers and lost 18–40. Coach Henry Gonzales said that turnovers and allowing too many second and third scoring opportunities was the team’s downfall in the second half. Lizbeth Alpizar led the team with seven points and 12 rebounds. After losing 22–65 to Louisville the next day, the Warriors returned for two games on the final day of the tournament. The first game was a closely contested game against Thacher. The Warriors fought hard but ultimately slipped behind for a final score of 21-22. Alpizar grabbed 10 rebounds and five points in the loss, while Amarisse Camargo scored 11 points, 10 rebounds and seven steals. Carpinteria lost its final game of the tournament to Hueneme, 30–52. The Warriors are now 2-7 on the year, and coach Gonzales is hoping to grow and learn from these losses heading into the remainder of the season. “I was happy with our overall attitude and willingness to play with perfect effort throughout the two games,” Gonzales said. “We will be a factor come league play.”

CIF Champions earn end-of-year awards

Cate had a strong run on the gridiron, clinching this year’s CIF Southern Section Championship in eight-man football. Several players and coaches were named on the 2021 All-CIF team: Ben Soto was named Coach of the Year; senior quarterback Will Bouma was named CIF Player of the Year; and senior wide receiver Mason Oetgen was named Offensive Player of the Year. Seniors Ethan Ligon and Matty Holmes and sophomore Kristian Scurtis made the first team All-CIF, while junior lineman Jack Whelan and Charlie Patel made second team.

Two big losses on the pitch for Warriors girls soccer

Carpinteria suffered two big shutouts in a row, as the girls soccer team lost 0–7 to Santa Clara and then 0–9 to Thacher two days later. Santa Clara went into the game as an undefeated top-10 team in Division six, and though the Warriors held the team scoreless for 27 minutes, Santa Clara exploded for three goals in four minutes and then a fourth goal just eight minutes later. “Although the score line was not favorable, a great deal of experience was gained today,” said coach Freddy Martinez. The Warriors’ woes continued two days later against Thacher in Ojai. Carpinteria was shutout 0–9 to put their record at 1-3-1 heading into the winter break. “This week was a huge test of character as well as a moment to see the parts of our game that need work as we prepare for league play in January,” Martinez said.

Cate boys basketball on fire in Fillmore Tournament

After a sputtering start with three losses to start the season, Cate’s Basketball team has exploded for five wins in a row, with the three latest wins coming in the Fillmore Tournament and sealing a second-straight tournament championship. Cate’s third win in a row came in a 20–13 victory over the host team, Fillmore, to start the tournament. The Rams built on that momentum in the tournament’s next game to overpower Santa Clara for a final score of 49–33. “Defense was the name of the game,” said coach Andy Gil. “We made Santa Clara work extremely hard for all their buckets and thankfully for us we had a fantastic shooting night.” Gil said he was most proud of the team’s success on the free throw line, making 12 out of 14 attempts in the game. A third and final tournament victory, 59–36 over Channel Islands, sealed the Fillmore Tournament Championship for Cate. The Rams also won the tournament the last time it was hosted in December 2019.

While corn and leeks are essential here, feel free to substitute potatoes or carrots for some or all of the sweet potatoes. If you don’t care for cilantro, try substituting fresh basil.
