CDC shortens recommended quarantine period Santa Barbara County reported a drastic jump in Covid-19 cases, up to 29.5 cases per 100,000 residents as of Dec. 23, compared to 13.5 cases per 100,000 residents on Dec. 17. The test positivity rate also rose, at 7.8%, compared to a 3.7% test positivity rate from the week prior. On Monday, the county reported 79 new cases county-wide, with three new cases in the Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria communities – bringing the total number of cases in the county up to 48,247 with 999 infectious cases. The majority of cases on Monday were seen in the 30-49 age group, at 29 cases, followed by 24 cases in the 18-29 age group. The county reported 39 hospitalizations on Monday, with 11 in the ICU. 64.5% of the county is now fully vaccinated, with 696,991 doses administered so far. The Center for Disease Control announced Monday that it is shortening the recommended isolation and quarantine time to five days, down from the previous recommended 10. “The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARSCoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after. Therefore, people who test positive should isolate for 5 days and, if asymptomatic at that time, they may leave isolation if they can continue to mask for 5 days to minimize the risk of infecting others,” the center said in a press release. The CDC stressed that those exposed to Covid-19 must wear a mask, even if asymptomatic. Both the California-wide indoor mask mandate and the local Santa Barbara County indoor mask mandate are still in e ect. “The Omicron variant is spreading quickly and has the potential to impact all facets of our society. CDC’s updated recommendations for isolation and quarantine balance what we know about the spread of the virus and the protection provided by vaccination and booster doses. These updates ensure people can

safely continue their daily lives. Prevention is our best option: get vaccinated, get boosted, wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial and high community transmission, and take a test before you gather,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said. Per CDC guidelines, if you test positive for Covid-19, you must stay home for five days, re gardless of vaccination statues. If you have no symptoms after five days, you can leave your house, but must continue to wear a mask around others for five more days. hose with a fever must stay home until the fever is resolved. For those who have been boosted, had oth fi er or oderna shots with in the last six months, or the singular J&J vaccine within the last two months: if you have been exposed to someone with Covid-19, you should wear a mask around others for 10 days, and take a test on day 5, if possible. If you develop symptoms, take a test and stay home. f you received oth fi er or oderna shots over six months ago, or had the J&J shot over two months ago, are not boosted, or are unvaccinated, if you are exposed to someone with Covid-19 you must stay home for five days and continue to wear a mask around others for five additional days. If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home. For the flu: everyone six months old and older should get a flu vaccine every year. They are available throughout the county and at local pharmacies, such as CVS and Rite Aid. 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.

Food Waste Recycling Starts in the New Year!


tarting Jan. 3, food waste recycling services begin for all residents of cities served by Harrison Industries. The program is simple: Just place all of your food waste in plastic bags (anything from bread bags to trash bags will do); tie the bags and place them in your yard waste carts, for collection along with your (loose) yard waste on your regular service day. We will take it from there, to make sure it’s all turned into organic compost or other products. Taking effect on Jan. 1, California Senate Bill 1383 requires communities statewide to prohibit organic waste from going to landfills. Food and other organic waste emits destructive methane gas as it decays, damaging the Earth’s atmosphere and causing global warming. * ALL FOOD WASTE is accepted for recycling – including bones, peels, shells and coffee grounds. DO NOT place trash; non-organic recyclables (plastic, metal, glass); pet waste; or Styrofoam in yard waste carts.

Congratulations to the registered voters in Carpinteria who signed the petition by the Initiative to Save Parking Lot 3. he initiative is now le ally certified and will be placed on the ballot. The people of Carpinteria will decide its future, not city sta who, in my opinion, suspect, cut a private deal behind closed doors to lease our public parking lot to a private developer, and not the mayor and two

city council mem ers who thou ht this was a good idea. Their refusal to act appropriately in the face of massive pu lic opposition led to this initiative. A public records request seeking all legal fees incurred associated with the development of the ur iner nn pro ect has een re ected y the city, statin this information is e empt from disclosure under the Public Records Act. In other words, it’s none of our business! t s my opinion that the city will attempt to pic apart this initiative. History

shows it is to e e pected. he nitiative to Save Parking Lot 3 selectively downzones this parcel from its e istin commercial zoning to Open Space/Recreation, thus preservin our e istin par in lot and pu lic restrooms, as well as our e pansive mountain views. t also saves the eastern end of our ommunity arden ar used for compostin and ee eepin from ein paved for additional par in to accommodate any would e hotel development. ontrary to pu lic comments that the initiative opens up issues for other Open Space parcels, the council would have to actually apply the R (residential) zoning overlay for housin to e permitted on any other open space property. Let there be no doubt that Carpinterians are passionate about protecting our small town charm.

How to curb binge eating


WELLNESS WARRIOR LEAH HARDING Bingeing is something that affects more people than you think, regardless of gender. Because people who experience bingeing often feel a huge amount of shame, it is rarely discussed openly, but the chances are high that you know someone who struggles with it. It is said that 8% of adults will have a binge eating disorder sometime in their life. A binge eating disorder (BED) is typically defined y in ein one to two times a week for at least three months. The binge is typically done in a short window, in two hours or less, and is accompanied by an out of control feeling. The calories consumed in the eating window are usually quite a bit higher than a normal amount that would be consumed; for some clients, I’ve seen an excess of 3,000+ calories during their window. Most people binge due to sadness or grief, low self-esteem and depression, genetics and dieting. For those who binge, it can feel as though the pattern will last forever, and it often does come and go. However, there are some known situations that trigger bingeing. If you can counter those triggers, it will be far easier to heal from a binge episode. Here are some ideas to help get you started: Make sure you aren’t hungry. Don’t cut calories too low. Being overly hungry or dieting can often lead to bingeing. When

dieting, if you cut your calories too low, your body may be screaming at you to eat a lot so you can get the nutrients you need. To avoid this, try to eat just below fullness for a while, don’t cut calories drastically. Another way to prevent long periods of hunger is to make sure you’re always ready with some snacks or have at least some food prepped in the kitchen. This could be as simple as pre-cooking some chicken for the week or keeping an apple or protein bar with you while running errands. Remove temptations. There are probably specific foods that you ravitate towards during a binge. If you make it harder to get those items – for example, by having to physically drive to the store – it may be a long enough interlude that once you get to the store, you’ll no longer want to binge as strongly. (Email me for a free kitchen makeover guide). Remove yourself from the situation. If you feel a binge coming on, go for a walk, call a friend or run some errands. Removing yourself from the house can be enough to help break the mental urgency to run to the kitchen and eat all the food. Get enough sleep. There is a strong link between hunger and sleep. When you don’t get enough sleep (one to two hours less than normal), hunger and cravings nearly always rise. The biggest favor you can do for yourself is to get enough sleep. More sleep also makes you better equipped to handle stress. Reduce stress. Stress is probably the number one reason people binge. By doing all of the above, you are setting

If you feel your struggles are bigger than something you can tackle yourself, en oura e you to n a ounse or ho spe ia i es in eatin isor ers or hire a professiona nutrition oa h to he p you or throu h it yourself up to be in a better position not to binge, but unless you keep stress low, it may be for naught. Stress can be managed best by good nutrition, meditation, exercise, connecting with others and selfcare – doing things you enjoy purely for yourself, and no one else. If all of this fails, allow yourself the opportunity to binge. Seriously. Give yourself grace and forgiveness before it happens and then move on. Dwelling on things will only continue the cycle of low self-esteem and stress that contributes to the bingeing behavior. Sometimes when you just allow yourself that space to do the thing that feels forbidden, you’ll find the feelin passes or that it is not quite as enjoyable as you’ve convinced yourself it is.

After it’s done, start anew. Because when forming a new habit, once is not enough. Keep practicing the above tips and you’ll change your mindset and your life. If you feel your struggles are bigger than something you can tackle yourself, encoura e you to find a counselor who specializes in eating disorders or hire a professional nutrition coach to help you work through it. Leah Harding is a nutrition coach and personal trainer. She specializes in helping people see food as an ally to reach their goals, both in and out of the gym. She previously owned CrossFit Carpinteria/Foxwing Fitness and now works out of her home gym and online. Contact her at lea in tness.c m it esti ns or with ideas for future wellness articles.

When I’m having trouble deciding what recipe to share with you all, I often reach out to friends and family for suggestions. My neighbor, Kristy, thought I should share my version of her Nana’s Persimmon Pudding. She had Hachiya persimmons from her tree ready to go in the freezer, so we bumped up the Christmas music and got to work baking this delicious classic. Persimmons originated from Japan and were brought to California in the early 1800s. They are in season from October through February, so the timing for this recipe is perfect. There are two popular types, both critical to eat when ripe: fuyus, similar to an apple, are best peeled and diced, while hachiyas are great for baking and best for this dish. When holding a ripe persimmon, it should feel like a water balloon. Preserve your persimmons, either whole or just the pulp, which can be frozen and used at a later date. Kristy often serves her pudding with a lemon glaze, pouring it on warm to let it soak in. She also serves it with soft whipped cream and fresh berries, vanilla ice cream or crème anglaise. Enjoy this recipe, and Happy New Year!

Former Carpinteria Warrior Brandon Jordan had a long journey to make it to his record-breaking 17 touchdowns this season.

Carpinteria graduate ourishes in record breaking championship season BY RYAN P. CRUZ

Former Carpinteria Warriors standout Brandon Jordan had a winding journey to college football success, but all the hard work has paid off for the Junior wide receiver, whose record-breaking 17th touchdown of the year helped his University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Crusaders clinch the 2021 Division 3 NCAA National Championship. “I feel like it was so well-deserved for us all, we worked all year,” Jordan said. The unconventional Covid-19 year meant a long off-season of training for Mary Hardin-Baylor, but that extra time in practice paid off for the team, and Jordan credits this for bringing the team together. “No doubt, I think that’s what got us here. It shows we were working,” he said. Though Jordan excelled in both football and basketball for Carpinteria, a tough 4-7 senior season meant there was little opportunity for him to have much college interest. The Warriors’ veer offense wasn’t the best t or his ra e b t ordan s size, speed, and play on defense gave him the con dence to lay at the ne t le el s a younger kid it helped me mature and understand – just stay committed,” he said. ordan grad ated in and decided to continue his career at Ventura College, where right away he made an impact as a freshman. As a sophomore, he led the team in receptions, yards and touchdowns on the road to ent ra ollege s rst e er State Championship in 2018. n a thrilling loss the o nd recei er ca ght three to chdowns. With the breakout season, Jordan received Division 1 attention and offers, but struggles with grades kept the scholarships just out of his reach. He wasn’t looking forward to playing in Division 3, but after getting an opportunity to join the perennial powerhouse in Texas, Mary Hardin-Baylor, he decided to take the chance. When he arrived at his new college campus in Belton, Texas, he immediately saw the serious football culture in the state. “I thought it was completely different,” he said. “As far as maturity, they are so

passionate about every little detail. They want it and they’re not playing around.” Right away he jumped with both feet into his new environment, leading his new team in receptions, yards and to chdowns in his rst season bac on the eld a ter the shortened ande ic year. He models his game after Calvin Johnson – the similarly sized big-frame Detroit Lions star – and the speedy Tayvon Austin, who Jordan actually had the opportunity to work out with during the offseason. “His mentality and heart, it drove me just to be different being able to meet him. When you’re out there you gotta know what you’re doing.” Mary Hardin-Baylor’s championshi r n began with an win o er Simpson College, and since then it has been a er ect r n to the i ision title n the ational e i nal a e against Wisconsin Whitewater, Jordan had 11 receptions, two touchdowns and o er yards On December 17, Jordan caught a 19yard to chdown ass in the rst arter to give Mary Hardin-Baylor a 9-7 lead; they never trailed again as they defeated North Central to clinch the National Championship. The touchdown was his 17th of the year – a new single-season school-record at Mary Hardin-Baylor. “I’m so thankful,” Jordan said, adding that his success would not have been possible without his coaches, arterbac and o ensi e line an Heading into his senior season, many of the key pieces will be returning, and Jordan hopes they can make another run for the title, and he hopes to continue with his academic journey to earn his degree in sports management. “I think this is my real passion,” he said. For now, he is soaking in the win, and enjoying some time off before he gets back to work. “I’m going to enjoy these holidays, embrace this moment,” he said.

Brandon was a standout in both basketball and football for the Warriors in 2015-2016.
