From left, Jim Sirianni (playing Kris Kringle) and Faith Gray (playing Susan Walker) took over the Alcazar Theatre last weekend for the theater’s adaptation of “Miracle on 34th Street.” The pair joined a cast of 30 to entertain and delight Carpinterians with the age-old Christmas tale, as the holiday peeks around the corner. In more Santa news, Carpinteria kids wrote into CVN this week, telling the jolly red man exactly what they want for Christmas. Want to find out what was on their wish lists?

Within the beach neighborhood overlay district, ADUs and JADUs are subject to additional city developmental review.

City ADU, JADU amendments approved by Coastal Commission

The city of Carpinteria’s amendments to its Local Coastal Program – which modify Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADUs) regulations within the city – were approved by the California Coastal Commission last week.

The Carpinteria City Council approved modifications to its program in September, creating a beach neighborhood overlay district that stretches between Ash and Linden avenues, below the railroad tracks. ADUs and JADUs – additional residential units on a property that vary in size – built in that area are subject to further city review, due to concerns over sea level rise.

Carpinteria’s El Carro Park, which also functions as a dog park, will be closed approximately through mid-March for renovations.

City to close El Carro Park for field renovations

El Carro Park will be closed for field renovations through approximately midMarch, Parks and Recreation Director Matthew Roberts confirmed. An exact schedule will be available later this week.

“Generally, we will be mowing down to the ground, performing a thorough aeration, top dressing with finely screened compost and also using sand for leveling. Then we will be seeding with new grass seed,” he told CVN. “This will take a couple of months to grow, and the public is asked to stay off the fields during the fragile seed germination and establishment period.”

Roberts said the city will also fill in the baseball infields with new infield mix.

El Carro Park, which also functions as a dog park, is located at 5300 El Carro Ln. in Carpinteria.

Reminder: second December council meeting canceled

The second Carpinteria City Council meeting in December, originally scheduled for Dec. 26, is canceled. The council voted in November to cancel its second meeting in December due to the holidays – a routine practice.

The next meeting of the Carpinteria Planning Commission is scheduled for Jan. 2, the next Carpinteria Unified School District Board of Trustees meeting for Jan. 10, and the next Architectural Review Board meeting for Jan. 12.

All meetings take place at Carpinteria City Hall, at 5775 Carpinteria Ave.

Three-story residential, commercial project gets first look at joint meeting

The Carpinteria City Council, Planning Commission and Architectural Review Board got a first look Monday night at a three-story, 24-unit mixed-use residential and commercial development – totaling just under 55,000 square feet on a 0.7-acre lot – on Carpinteria Avenue and Ninth Street, currently the home of Sun Coast

Justin Klentner, the property’s prospective buyer and developer, and Michael Stroh, the project architect from DMHA Architecture, presented the early designs for a conceptual review. The developers hoped to test the waters with the city’s boards, revealing a project that pushed the envelope with height, density and exceptions, compared to Carpinteria’s typical developments.

The commercial portion of the space would face Carpinteria Avenue, with 6,000 feet of space across two stories, and a 650 square-foot patio on the second floor. Project planners hope the space will be used for local retail, cafe or art gallery space. Carpinteria City Planner Nick Bobroff said the commercial space would be zoned specifically for “visitor facing commercial.”

The residential portion, which would sit on the second and third floors of the building, tucked behind the commercial spaces, would have 24 residential apartments – 13 one-bedroom and 11 two-bedroom – surrounding a central courtyard. The apartments would sit on top of a ground level parking garage,

and the developers are seeking a heigh exemption to stretch beyond the city’s 30-foot maximum to as high as 36 feet.

Planners behind the project are seeking three exemptions under the state’s density bonus laws, asking the city to allow for the greater height, more lot coverage and fewer spaces than a project of this size would normally require. The project currently would offer 59 spaces; without the exemption the city would require at least 70.

Under the density bonus laws, as long as a housing project offers a certain percentage of its units as “affordable housing,” the state allows for developers to request exemptions in order to get the much-needed housing built. The density bonus, and pressure from the state to build more housing with the latest Housing Element, opens the door for developers to toe the line past what local governments would typically approve.

“Can the idea of a project that is beyond what would normally be allowed by zoning–can it work?” Stroh asked.

Councilmember Wade Nomura pointed out that no other residential projects have been allowed to exceed the 30-foot limit, and cautioned the board members, saying “we have to as a city hold tight as long as we can to those precedents.”

“If you want to see what 36 and 38 feet look like, go look at the towers on the Best Western, that’s what is being proposed,” Nomura said. “That is the height that we

made exceptions to, only because those tower elements were part of an architectural feature, and we did not include that as habitable space.”

During public comment, several Carpinteria residents–including some living along Franklin Creek and Ninth Street–voiced their concerns over the project, saying it would not fit in the surrounding neighborhood.

“Residents come first,” said Councilmember Roy Lee, “and I want to see the developers reach out to that community to work something out to compromise to make both sides happy.”

Lee said if the developers showed a genuine effort to work with the community, he would be more open to allowing for some of the exceptions.

Members of the Architectural Review Board slammed the project’s overall size, saying it did not meet aesthetics and neighborhood compatibility standards, while some of the planning commissioners said the project would meet many of the city’s development goals.

“Mixed use is appropriate for the site,” said Planning Commissioner Glenn LaFevers, adding that there was “clearly” a need for more rental units in Carpinteria and the location would be a good fit.

“This is the beginning of a conversation, we shouldn’t just slap them around. We need to carry on a civilized conversation about a project that could have great ben-

efit to the city of Carpinteria,” Planning Commissioner John Moyer said.

Mayor Al Clark closed the session by asking that the developers “embrace the balancing effort” of building more housing but keep within the city’s small beach character.

“How do we keep a small town but

CVN

BRIEFLY

also provide some housing?” he asked.

“I would like to see us do a little bit more density but still also respect the neighborhood and the town in the way you do it.”

No action was taken during the conceptual review, and the project will proceed through the city review process once developers submit an official application.

County water agency launches annual student WaterWise contest

The Santa Barbara County Water Agency announced the launch of its 24th annual WaterWise high school video contest this week. Local students – including students residing in Carpinteria – are encouraged to create 30-second videos about water-use efficiency in the county. This year’s theme “Does Lawn Belong?” asks students to highlight sustainable water use.

High school students who live in Carpinteria are encouraged to submit videos, according to Rhonda Gutierrez, an engineering technician at the Carpinteria Valley Water District. The Carpinteria Valley Water District is a participating water agency in the contest, Gutierrez said.

The water agency and contest sponsors will provide $500 to first place winners for both English and Spanish videos; $250 for second place and $150 for third place. The winner of the People’s Choice Award – voted on by the public – will receive $500.

“We are pleased to continue this long-standing program and excited to see the amazing videos our local high school students will create,” said County Water Agency Manager Matt Young.

Schools may submit up to six videos, three in Spanish and three in English, for the contest. All submissions must be in by March 3, 2023, at 11:59 p.m.; the agency will announce winners in May 2023. Learn more or apply at WaterWiseSB.org/HSVC.

Obituary

Passing the gavel

ACT II:

Ollie and Cliff divorced in 1974. Ollie moved to Santa Barbara (and then Carpinteria) to be closer to Bryan, his wife Michel, and their children Ann and Doug (“Annie and Dougie” to grandma).

Newly single, Ollie focused on a career. As it turns out, assisting her dad at the bus company was a kind of internship, and Ollie began working as a travel agent, first at Ask Mr. Foster, and then at Your Travel Center, where she was an office manager for several years. She didn’t fully retire until May 2000 – it’s hard to give up those travel perks!

CVN

ACT I:

Olga “Ollie” Nellis was born on Sept. 18, 1924 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada to Wasyl (Bill) and Anastasia (Nastia or Nettie) Swystun, immigrants from Eastern Galicia (now Ukraine).

Bill ran a regional bus line where Ollie would help with operations when she wasn’t diligently practicing violin, with her younger sister Stephanie nearby.

After graduating from Gordon Bell High School in Hazelridge, Manitoba and briefly attending the University of Manitoba, Ollie met a dashing Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) navigator named Cliff Nellis, whom she married in 1945. Ten months later she gave birth to their beloved son, Bryan.

Within a year the family ventured west to Vancouver, BC, where (along with Bill) Ollie and Cliff owned and operated a coffee shop and a rooming house.

Dreams of sunny California beckoned. Ollie, Cliff and Bryan moved to Ontario, CA in December 1953. Ollie taught music and played violin with the Claremont Symphony Orchestra for many years, while also catering to Bryan and the family dog Sable. They were frequently poolside.

Ollie loved to travel, through Egypt, India, China, Kenya, Malaysia, Australia, Poland, Panama, Russia and more. She visited every continent except Antarctica, drinking a few martinis (or the local equivalent) and making new friends on each.

ACT III:

In her final decade, Ollie’s brain slowly fell victim to dementia. Unable to live on her own any longer, she moved to Seattle to be near grandson Doug and his wife, Susan.

Dementia is no picnic, but those final years were more comedy than tragedy. Visits to the symphony. Conversations with goldfish. And lots of laughter. As she moved through assisted living and memory care, caregivers would tell family, “We’re not supposed to have favorites, but Ollie is my favorite.”

Although her memory slipped away, her spirit and sense of humor never wavered. She was smiling and joking until her final days. Ollie Nellis passed away on Nov. 20, 2022, of something that can only be described as “old age.”

Lower the curtain and cue the orchestra. It was a good run.

A graveside service will be held at Goleta Cemetery, Jan. 27, 2023, at 11 a.m.

FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK

Dear Carpinterians, Last week marked the start of a new chapter for the Carpinteria City Council. At our Dec. 12 meeting, we welcomed new Councilmember Mónica Solórzano and re-elected Councilmembers Roy Lee and Al Clark. We thanked outgoing Councilmember Gregg Carty for his 16 years of dedicated service to our community. It has been an absolute pleasure to serve on the council and the Architectural Review Board alongside Councilmember Carty. He and I have worked together for nearly 30 years, and I have always valued his opinion. I have the greatest respect for what he has contributed to the community both in those roles and behind the scenes, where his compassion and hard work are always motivated by a strong desire to do right by his community.

At our last council meeting, Vice Mayor Al Clark was selected to be the Carpinteria’s mayor for the next two years. I look forward to working with our new mayor and our new council to keep Carpinteria uniquely wonderful – a small coastal community with an enormous heart.

I thank you all for reading, for staying informed and for caring deeply about our community. I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed being your mayor for the last four years. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished during a very difficult time for our city, especially the following:

• The way we came together to support our businesses and residents through the Covid-19 pandemic, including the “shop local” campaign I promoted from the first day restrictions were announced, fundraising and food banks to support those in need, plus recovery efforts and grants for businesses;

• An increase in inclusivity when I requested upon my mayoral appointment that everything the city does be translated into Spanish, including meetings and written communications;

• Establishing some major local facilities for our community, including a skate park, senior programming and our own city-managed library;

• I was proud to walk with the students who initiated a peaceful Black Lives Matter walk and work as part of the committee to introduce some changes in polices, including establishing a Racial

Equity and Social Program;

• Resurrecting the Joint City Council, Planning Commission and Architectural Review Board review process so potential projects can be evaluated consistently;

• And there are many more things that I am proud to have been involved in over my four years as mayor and the council has worked with the incredible city staff to improve local lives and protect our community.

Although the passing of the gavel means that this will be my last letter to you as mayor, I will remain one of our five councilmembers and have no doubt we will continue to work cooperatively, as we have in the past, for the betterment of Carpinteria.

As we celebrate the holidays, please remember to continue to care for each other, to volunteer to support our community and take advantage of all the fun activities available to us in our community. I had the pleasure of being at the opening night of the Alcazar Theatre’s “Miracle on 34th Street.” I was also a judge at the Carpinteria Arts Center Cookie Baking competition and was particularly impressed by the “adopt a grandparent” new program they introduced. There has been loads more happening in the community and I thank everyone involved in making Carpinteria so special.

Please keep being generous by supporting our local non-profits and those less fortunate. When you’re shopping for loved ones, support local businesses over Amazon. What makes Carpinteria so special is the people who live here, who take care of each other, laugh together, cry together and always show up for each other in times of need.

Stay well and stay safe, and happy holidays!

Board approves 2021-22 audit

The board approved the 2021-22 annual audit; board trustee Shaeffer congratulated Maureen Fitzgerald, superintendent of business services for the district, for the clean audit.

“Generally, there’s some… changes, but to not have any is truly remarkable,” he said.

Teachers ask for additional compensation

Several teachers in the district took to public comment yet again, criticizing what they called a lack of substantial compensation for educators and asking board members to act.

Heidi Medel, an aide at Aliso Elementary School, claimed new staff members are paid more than current, longtime staff members like herself. She said when she raised concerns to her human resources representative about the discrepancy of incoming staff being paid $3-4 dollars an hour more than current staff, she was told the salaries were based on experience.

“Several new instructional aides have admitted to having no experience,” Medel said. “We are asking to be paid fairly. We should be making the same, if not more, than brand new employees.” She also raised concerns about some aides not being trained in special education.

Lupe Gonzalez, an instructional aide at Summerland Elementary School who

gave her public comment in Spanish, brought up concerns with class sizes and said students are not receiving the necessary attention.

A solution to this, she said, would be to reduce class sizes to 20 students, where possible, and offer more hours to instructional aides to work with students, even if this results in the district providing aides with full health care benefits.

“Many instructional assistants would accept more hours if the district would only offer them,” Gonzalez said.

The board did not respond to the claims made during public comment.

Editor’s Note: Part 1 of this article, “Carpinteria pot wars: A Dutch clean-air technology gives residents some hope,” ran in CVN Vol. 29, No. 13.

Just beyond the boundaries of the city of Carpinteria, 35 greenhouse operations totaling 166 acres of cannabis are proposed or have been approved for zoning permits, county records show. Under lenient – some would say, lax – county rules, most have been operating for more than four years without permits or business licenses. Cultivation will be capped at 186 acres.

Since early 2018, records show, Carpinteria Valley residents have filed more than 2,800 odor complaints with the county regarding the skunky smell of pot and the perfumy smell of the vapor-phase systems in their community. Although the stink was much worse several years ago, hot spots persist along Foothill and Casitas Pass roads, Via Real, La Mirada Drive, Cravens and Padaro lanes and in the vicinity of the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club.

In 2021, the coalition signed an agreement with CARP Growers, an industry group representing 18 landowners who hold 88% of the state licenses for marijuana cultivation in the valley. Under the pact, the growers pledged to resolve their odor problem by “continuously employing the best available control technology” and adopt a stringent protocol for addressing complaints. In return, the coalition agreed to stop opposing and appealing county approvals of CARP Grower projects.

Marc Chytilo, an attorney for the group, said that the scrubber study at Roadside Blooms redefines the standard for all of the cannabis greenhouses in the valley and beyond.

“This moment that we’re in represents the turning point,” Chytilo said. Growers in the hot spots should install scrubbers first, he said, but eventually all greenhouse operators should replace their vapor-phase systems with scrubbers.

“To have a former president of CARP Growers change course and elect to go with scrubbers in place of vapor phase is a significant development,” Chytilo said, in a reference to the Vista Verde project. “I’m hoping that that trend will continue.”

“Not good enough”

So far, only three cannabis greenhouse operations in the valley are equipped with scrubbers. In 2020, Cindy and David Van Wingerden, owners of CVW Organic Farms on Cravens Lane, also known as Farmlane, were the first to install to them as part of an agreement with the coalition and Concerned Carpinterians, a loosely-knit group of residents who, like the coalition, advocate for more stringent regulation of the cannabis industry.

The scrubbers at CVW are designed and engineered by Marc Byers, a Summerland resident who owns Byers Scientific, an industrial odor management firm. According to Byers, a study by SCS found that, on average, his scrubbers can eliminate 94 percent of the smell of pot in cannabis greenhouses. At CVW, the Byers scrubbers

run at night; a Byers vapor-phase system is turned on during the day.

Ever-Bloom and Roadside Blooms are the only two greenhouse operations currently equipped with Envinity scrubbers. Neither uses a vapor-phase system. According to Phil Greene, president of Coastal Blooms, an additional 100 Envinity scrubbers will be installed early next year at Maximum Nursery, a four-acre cannabis operation at 4555 Foothill Rd.; and Creekside, a four-acre operation at 3508 Via Real. Both are owned by Ed’s brother, Winfred Van Wingerden.

Graham Farrar, the owner of Glass House Farms – two large cannabis operations that have been a focus of odor complaints from residents – says he will install Envinity scrubbers next year on three acres of greenhouses at 5601 Casitas Pass Rd. Glass House operates as Mission Health Associates on this property, and Farrar is a co-owner. The greenhouse closest to the road is already equipped with an earlier model of carbon filters, he said.

It will take longer to install Envinity scrubbers at his eight-acre G&K Farms at 3561 Foothill Rd., Farrar said, because the zoning permit for a 25,000 square-foot processing building he wants to build is awaiting a hearing before the state Coastal Commission. Sarah Trigueiro, a resident of La Mirada Drive, appealed to the state panel to reverse the county supervisors’ approval of the project earlier this year.

“Once the appeal has run its course, the door opens up for us to revise our Odor Abatement Plan and make the change” to scrubbers at G&K Farms, Farrar said. He

is currently using a vapor-phase system for odor control.

Scrubbers or no, the odor problem in the Carpinteria Valley is vastly complicated by the fact that many greenhouse operations are clustered together and it’s impossible to determine which one is causing the smell. And even scrubbers are not 100% effective.

The smell of cannabis at Seaside Gardens, a business that is advertised as a “botanical wonderland” at 3700 Via Real, is a case in point. It is next to Roadside Blooms. Linda Wudl, the owner, said she appreciates her neighbor’s use of scrubbers but is plagued almost daily by the noxious smell of pot that settles in the employee parking lot behind her warehouse.

“It just makes me sick,” Wudl said, adding that the smell drifts into her sales areas, and her customers are starting to complain. “The scrubbers are seemingly not working – or if they’re working, it’s still not good enough.”

Ed Van Wingerden noted that other cannabis greenhouse operations in the area have not yet installed scrubbers.

“It could be coming from somewhere else,” he said of the smell at Seaside. “It’s definitely not coming from us.”

With Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on Sunday this holiday season, in the weeks before and after the holidays, trash, recyclables and yard/organic waste collection by E.J. Harrison & Sons will not be delayed.

For two weeks after Christmas, from Monday, Dec. 26, through Saturday, Jan. 7, residents may put out extra holiday waste curbside on collection day – up to two 50-gallon bags – free of charge.

Also, remember to recycle your Christmas tree by removing the ornaments, hooks, lights, tinsel, bows, nails and tree stand. Cut the tree into sections no more than 4 feet long and place in your yard/organics waste cart on your scheduled pickup day. Or, place the whole Christmas tree at the curb on collection day. Flocked trees also are accepted for recycling.

Locals volunteer to sniff cannabis for science

Cannabis critics had a chance this year to lend their noses to a controlled odor study at one of the many greenhouse “grows” that ring the seaside town of Carpinteria.

Last August, Coastal Blooms Inc., a group of cannabis greenhouse operators, commissioned a 48-hour controlled study at Roadside Blooms, a four-acre operation at 3684 Via Real. They had equipped the greenhouses with carbon filters or “scrubbers” from the Netherlands, and they wanted to find out how well the scrubbers working to get rid of the stench of pot.

The group rented an “olfactometer” from Germany and flew in Dutch engineers to help with the study. They bagged 260 air samples inside two Roadside greenhouses of similar size at harvest time, when the “skunky” smell of cannabis is strongest. They also took samples upwind and downwind of each greenhouse, on the roof ridge lines and at the open roof vents.

The cannabis harvests are typically staggered, so it took “immense amounts of planning, manhours and coordination” to harvest both greenhouses on the same day at the same time, according to a Nov. 14 report by SCS Engineers, a Santa Maria consulting firm.

One greenhouse was equipped with 15 scrubbers developed by the Envinity Group, a Dutch company. In the other, the scrubbers were turned off.

The results were made public this month. They show that on average, the Envinity scrubbers reduced the smell of pot by 84% before the gaseous compounds emitted by the cannabis could escape through the roof vents.

“Our focus has been trying to prove that scrubbers are a viable odor control methodology for both the growers and the community,” Phil Greene, president of Coastal Blooms, said. “Growers want to solve the problem; there’s just the constraints of paying for all this. It’s a

heavy investment in a tough market environment.”

The study was conducted by SCS; the Envinity Group, and Environmental Monitoring Systems, an international supply firm. The cost, between $750,000 and $900,000, was paid by Greene and his partners – Ed Van Wingerden, Mike and Adam Palmer and Amir-Hamsa Eskandari. Envinity scrubbers cost $20,000 each.

Roadside was chosen because it sits near the ocean, apart from other greenhouse operations at the western end of the valley. In the past, SCS has sent odor samples to a lab in Connecticut that can handle only a dozen sample bags per day. Performing the testing in Carpinteria with community members allowed for 10 times as many samples to be analyzed, the SCS report said.

CARP Growers, an industry group, reached out to 200 residents, asking them to participate, including a number from Concerned Carpinterians and the Santa Barbara Coalition for Responsible Cannabis, two groups whose members have appealed cannabis greenhouse projects and filed hundreds of odor complaints.

“Our goal was to get a good representative sample of people who have experienced odor – a pool of people who have been impacted – and to help educate, too,” Greene said.

Ninety residents agreed to be screened as potential participants in “odor panels.”

Using the olfactometer, they sniffed air samples that contained a chemical compound internationally used for screening purposes. Some said it smelled like parmesan cheese; others said it smelled like a dirty gym bag, Greene said.

“We take a known concentration and present it to them in different dilutions to find individual perceptions,” he said. “Odor is an emotional thing. We were looking for the 80 percent that were representative of the average person.”

People who were too sensitive to smell or not sensitive enough were not chosen for the study. In the end, only

28 people – 11 community members, 10 Coastal Blooms representatives, three SCS engineers, two coalition members, one member of CARP Growers and one member of the Envinity Group – made the grade as odor panelists. They were told not to smoke, drink coffee, wear perfumes, use toothpaste or chew gum before their panels.

Over a three-day period, the panelists were asked to smell the Roadside air samples during four-hour shifts in groups of four, seated around a table in an office in downtown Carpinteria. Each panelist had 15 seconds to sniff two streams of air coming from two glass nozzles called “odor cups” – one provided a stream of pure air, and the other a stream with a known dilution of an odor sample.

The streams alternated at random, and the panelists did not know which was which. After sniffing back and forth from each cup, they were given another 15 seconds to signal whether they could detect an odor of any kind. They were then presented with rounds of ever-higher concentrations of the odor sample until all four panelists at the table signaled a detection level.

“You never tell the people what to smell,” Greene said. “We’re not measuring cannabis odor; we’re just measuring odor. Some people said they just felt something different in their nose.”

It was a difficult and tiring job. One of the panelists, Sandy Weil, a member of the coalition and Concerned Carpinterians, said that hours of sniffing made her nauseous and groggy.

“I could hardly walk out of there, I was so sniffed up,” she said. “It seems to cling inside your nose. Soon, I was tasting it and smelling it. It was hard for me to

decipher what was going on.”

Weil, who lives on Shepard Mesa in the northeastern corner of the valley, is a member of both the coalition and Concerned Carpinterians. She said she filed has 10 complaints with the county in the past three years about the smell that hangs around “almost any time of the day or night” near the Glass House Farms cannabis greenhouse operation that is co-owned by Graham Farrar at 5601 Casitas Pass Rd. Weil said she stopped filing complaints because there was no enforcement.

“The reason why I participated in the study is, I wanted to know more about what the growers were doing, and whether the smell test would make a difference,” she said. “Would we have a solution for all of us who have endured the smell for so many years? We just felt like our voices were never heard.”

In addition to Roadside Blooms, Coastal Blooms operates Ever-Bloom, Maximum Nursery and Creekside Blooms, cannabis greenhouses at 4701 Foothill Road, 4555 Foothill Road and 3508 Via Real, respectively. Ever-Bloom and Roadside are already equipped with Envinity scrubbers; and scrubbers will be installed at Maximum and Creekside early next year, Greene said.

Cemetery, Lions Club honor veterans’ graves with holiday wreaths

In partnership with Wreaths Across America, the Lions Club of Carpinteria and the Carpinteria Cemetery District laid wreaths across every known veteran’s grave at the Carpinteria Cemetery last Saturday, honoring local deceased veterans during the holiday season.

“Many Lions and other volunteers came out to place the wreaths and thank the veterans for their service,” Matt Dawson, president of the Lions Club of Carpinteria, told CVN. Dawson said over 450 wreaths were placed last week; they will remain on the graves for two weeks during the holidays.

Carpinteria Cemetery Manager Mike Damron said this is the district’s seventh year participating in the Wreaths Across America program. Next year, the district hopes to place nearly 600 donated wreaths on veterans’ graves.

Festival of Trees nets over $40k for community groups

The Festival of Trees – organized by the Lions Club of Carpinteria – brought in $40,000 this holiday season, committee chair Matt Dawson confirmed to CVN.

Of the funds raised, $21,000 went to the Carpinteria High School Future Farmers of America program, $9,000 to the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, $2,500 to the Parents of Carpinteria High School, $2,500 to the Alcazar Theatre and $2,500 to the Carpinteria Lions Community Building Association, Dawson said.

“We are just extremely grateful for the great community support,” Dawson told CVN. “An extra special thanks to the board of directors of the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center for giving us a new home.”

Each year, local organizations decorate their own trees, which are put up for raffle by the Lions Club of Carpinteria; community members then buy the $1 raffle tickets with the hope of winning one of the trees. Dawson told the city council last month that 95% of the funds raised go back to community organizations.

CVN “Stutz”

REEL DEAL

Few movies receive universal acclaim.

So far, “Stutz” (a Netflix original) is one of them. Every single reviewer on Rotten Tomatoes has liked it – it has a 100% rating.

“Stutz” is an unusual movie. It’s a film about therapy. It’s also sort of a documentary about the life and work of a particular therapist: Dr. Phil Stutz. It’s also sort of a therapy session, sometimes run by Stutz, sometimes run by the film’s creator, Jonah Hill.

It’s an unusual movie, and Stutz is an unusual therapist. For one thing, he doesn’t just listen, or listen and “reflect back” what his patients say. He directs them; he tells them what to do. According to Stutz and Hill, this makes sense – after all, he is an expert. Just as you might ask the chef what to order or the stylist how to do your hair, you might find it natural that your psychiatrist would tell you how to think, or what to do, about your psychological problems. (Of course, there are also risks, which Stutz and Hill shrug off, that come with having one all-important dude in charge of interpreting and responding to complex psychological phenomena. I guess that just means it’s important to have a celebrity guru for a therapist?)

Stutz is also an unusual therapist in that he draws pictures for his patients. These aren’t very fancy pictures; Parkinson’s Disease, which Stutz has had for decades, limits him in this regard. But it helps his patients visualize and conceptualize key “tools” for improving their lives.

Stutz is all about tools. Tools are practices that help people deal with various issues, including depression, anxiety, insecurity, addiction and procrastination (you can see the tools here: thetoolsbook. com/). These practices incorporate parts of Internal Family Systems therapy – which conceptualizes different facets of a person’s mental life as characters or “parts” (kind of like in the movie “Inside Out”) – but a lot of the particulars come directly from Stutz’s own mind.

In “Stutz,” we are guided through some of these tools, as well as other facets of Stutz’s approach to therapy.

The roles also get reversed from to time. Stutz becomes the patient, the object of attention. We learn about his past, family, the things he has struggled with, his worries and fears. We learn that Stutz is just like us. One particularly powerful aspect of his approach is that he is very honest and upfront about how

suffering, as well as the work in light of that suffering, are permanent parts of all of our lives – they will always be there, we cannot hope to eliminate them, and the goal is to find ways to move forward through them.

“Stutz” is an interesting reflection on therapy and the human condition. So many ideas are floated throughout the movie that are worth thinking more about. It’s a bit hard to do that when they’re coming at you rapid-fire in a 96-minute movie. I guess that’s what therapy is for.

“Stutz” also reads as a love letter –from Jonah Hill to Phil Stutz, to therapy – and maybe, to be perfectly honest, to himself. Let’s be real. There’s an undeniable self-importance in making a movie about one’s own therapist. Especially when Hill himself turns therapist and commenter on the human condition. It’s cringy, I think. Maybe Hill is sincere. And maybe there’s some use to a rich, famous celebrity sharing about how, really, he’s a broken man, and ever since he was a teenager, he felt self-conscious about his weight, and his mom really hurt his feelings, and now therapy has made him whole again, and so on. Celebrities are people too. Even so, I admit that I found myself thinking, “Oh, shut up, Jonah Hill, tell it to your therapist (assumption: We are not present for the therapy session).”

Nonetheless, “Stutz” is a unique, thought-provoking film that also functions as a kind of therapy session for viewers. And, if you have Netflix, it’s free – infinitely cheaper than Phil Stutz’s hourly rate.

“Stutz” is rated R for language.

CVN’s Seal Watch weekly report, written by Seal Watch volunteers, covers activities at the Harbor Seal Rookery. The rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and the Carpinteria State Beach.

More Info

Please consider honoring the Marine Mammal Protection Act by not walking the seal sanctuary beach all year. Do not bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs always remain outside the rope area.

Seal Watch has prepared a one-hour training video for any who would like to volunteer, as well as anyone who would like to know more about Carpinteria’s harbor seals. The video, as well as a training manual, can be accessed online by contacting carpsealwatch@gmail.com.

Seal Watch volunteers act as docents both at the bluff overlook viewing area and at the beach ends during low tides. Your choice! Join us!

Is There a Santa Claus?

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED

We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the communication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of The Sun:

DEAR EDITOR:

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, “If you see it in The Sun, it’s so.” Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! How dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and useable in the world.

You tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man or even the united

strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! He lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Carpinteria tips off Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic

Carpinteria’s gym was stacked with basketball action on Monday for the opening day of the annual Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic. The Warriors hosted nine other teams – Grace Brethren, De Toledo, Foothill Tech, Santa Ynez, Thacher, Bishop Diego, Channel Islands, Dos Pueblos and Pasadena Poly – for three days of holiday hoops, from Monday to Wednesday.

On opening night, Carpinteria faced Foothill Tech for the third time this year, hoping to avenge two earlier losses this season.

The Tech Dragons jumped out to an early 11-8 lead after one quarter and stretched their lead by four more points to go into halftime up 27-20.

Carpinteria had its best quarter in the third, outscoring Foothill Tech 12-10 and bringing the game within five points heading into the fourth quarter.

In the beginning of the fourth quarter, Israel Samaguey brought the Warriors within three points, but Foothill Tech would respond with a big 12-2 run to take a 10-point lead.

The Warriors had their own small run, but Foothill Tech’s defense held on for the 56-48 win. The Dragons are undefeated against Carpinteria this year.

Kainoa Glasgow continued a strong senior season, leading Carpinteria with

24 points in the loss, and sophomore Sebastian Campuzano scored 11.

Carpinteria is now 1-9 overall and will finish the Holiday Cage Classic with two more games against Grace Brethren and De Toledo. On the first day of tournament action, De Toledo defeated Grace Brethren 81-50.

Dos Pueblos picked up its second win of the year with a 61-47 win over Pasadena Poly, led by 17 points from Micah Goss and 14 from Justin Stock.

Up next, Santa Ynez held off Thacher in the closest game of the tournament so far, 59-54.

Santa Ynez’s Landon Lassahn had a tournament-high 26 points and eight rebounds, while Caleb Cassidy had a double-double with 19 points and 15 rebounds.

In the last game of the day, Bishop Diego beat Channel Islands, 61-33, led by a balanced offensive attack from Isaal Veal (15 points), Luis Fernandez (10 points) and Qu’Ran Gossett (nine points).

Tournament action will conclude with 10 more games over two days, and the Warriors will return to regular season action with a home game against Hueneme on Friday, Dec. 23 and another home game against Bishop Diego on Tuesday, Dec. 27.

Belen Herrera, Warriors Cross Country make All-League list

Carpinteria senior athlete Belen Herrera was named on the 2022 Citrus Coast League Second Team, and three of her teammates earned Honorable Mentions in this year’s All League selections.

Herrera made Second Team All-League after a strong career at Carpinteria, where she was consistently a top finisher for the Warriors. At the Citrus Coast League Finals held at Lake Casitas in Ojai, Herrera was the highest finisher for the Warrior girls’ team in eighth overall, and she also qualified for the CIF prelims as an individual.

Three other members of Carpinteria’s girls cross country team also earned honorable mentions: sophomore Carel Bautista, junior Ruby Cluderay and senior Iltze Alvarado.

Warriors water polo wins at Thousand Oaks

Carpinteria girls water polo hit the road to face Thousand Oaks in a non-league matchup, with the Warriors taking advantage of their speed and endurance to pull away with a 10-7 victory.

Thousand Oaks started out quick with a 3-1 lead, but Carpinteria outscored the Lancers 7-3 in the next two quarters to head into the fourth quarter up by two. The Warriors would then hold on for the win.

“It was a big comeback win for the Warriors and a great way to put an end to finals week and a start of winter break,” said Carpinteria coach Jon Otsuki. “(We) have been showing improvement in communication, defense and situational awareness.”

Ainslee Alexander led the team with four goals, Lilli Nemetz scored three, Giulia Piccoletti scored a pair of goals and Kate Isaac scored once. Goalie Erin Otsuki finished the win with 12 blocks and two steals.

Carpinteria advances to 5-2 overall, and the girls will return to action after winter break with a tournament at Buena in the first week of January.

Cate Rams Roundup

Cate girls basketball picked up its third win of the year at home against Santa Ynez, 38-31.

It was a defensive battle in the first half, and Cate held the Pirates to only five points in the first quarter and two points in the second to head into halftime up 12-7.

Santa Ynez came back with a balanced scoring attack to take a two-point lead into the fourth quarter, but Cate exploded for 20 points in the final period to take the win.

“Tonight, we demonstrated our potential when we attack offensively,” said Cate coach Laura Moore. “We look forward to building on this strong foundation when we return to Frontier league play in 2023.”

On the boys side, Cate dropped a non-league matchup to Santa Ynez, 75-51. It was the third game the Rams played without their leading scorer and rebounder, Babacar Pouye, who suffered an ankle injury in early December.

“These games without Babacar against big schools and programs are exactly what we need to prepare for,” said Cate head coach Andrew Gil. “Today we played extremely well in spurts but just need to limit our turnovers and box out.”

The Rams recovered against Laguna Blanca, picking up a 59-55 win in the team’s final game heading into the winter break.

“Always feels great going into break with a win,” Gil said. “We had a grueling two weeks playing nine games and now winter break will allow us to rest our bodies and minds for a little bit.”

Jengus Ercil led Cate with 27 points in the win, and Marcus Scudder contributed 18. Cate will return to the court on Jan. 7 to open Tri-Valley League play against Bishop Diego.

Local triathlete wins third gold medal of 2022

Carpinteria High School junior Ruby Cluderay competed in her third triathlon of this year, claiming her third gold medal in her age group at the Tinsel Triathlon in Hemet, California in the San Jacinto Valley.

The Tinsel Triathlon is the largest and longest reverse triathlon on the west coast, and this year over 400 competitors braved the cold early December weather for one of the last triathlons of the year.

It was less than 48 degrees, and high winds and rain tested the younger competitors during the 5k run and the 12-mile bike ride along the Domenigoni Parkway. Cluderay fought through the cold and windy conditions and finished with her fastest swim ever to claim first place for ages 13-17 and fourth overall.

The latest win was her third gold medal of 2022 and secured her a spot in 2023 USA National Championships in Milwaukee next year.

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 cups unsalted butter, room temp 3/4 cups light brown sugar, lightly packed

3/4 cups granulated sugar

2 large eggs, room temp

18 Andes Chocolate Mints candies

3 drops peppermint essential oil (or 1/2 tsp peppermint extract)

1 cup mini chocolate chips

1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Sift and whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. With a stand or hand mixer, blend together butter and sugars, followed by eggs and vanilla. Add dry

ingredients to wet until just combined, do not overmix. Fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop by rounded tablespoon onto the lined baking sheet, approximately two inches apart. A melon baller works well for this!

Bake for 8–10 minutes. While baking, whisk the icing ingredients together until smooth. You can add more powdered sugar or milk to achieve the desired consistency.

The cookies will be set around edges, but soft in the center. Don’t overbake! Remove the baking sheet and gently press 1/2 of an Andes Chocolate Mint into the center of each cookie. Let sit for 3-5 minutes and then spread carefully across the top of the cookie. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool.

Once cooled, drizzle with icing and decorate with additional sprinkles as desired.
