MONTECITO LAW

BRIEFLY

I reached out to Stefanie to help develop an estate plan for my parents, who had been reticent to think about a future of which they were not a part. Her office and staff are warm and welcoming (as is she), and she deftly handled the “elephant in the room” and helped set my parents’ minds at ease. Her knowledge about trusts and other estate planning best practices was invaluable, and her clarity and directness made complicated topics easy to understand for the uninitiated. Highly recommend!

Santa Barbara County animal shelters are reporting record numbers of intakes, the county shared last week, with approximately 14 new animals coming in per day. Through the end of this year, shelters will hold a “Name Your Price” promotion and encourages families to foster during their winter breaks.

“We believe that everyone would pay a million dollars for their family pet if they could, but it’s just not possible. We never want an adoption fee to be a barrier to experiencing the love of a furry friend,” Director Sarah Aguilar said last week.

Approximately 150 animals are currently being fostered through the county’s shelter system. To learn more, visit linktr.ee/sbcanimalservices.

The county’s south county shelter is located in Goleta, at 5473 Overpass Road, and in north county in Santa Maria at 548 W. Foster Road.

Trash collection unaffected by

Martin Luther King Jr.

Day

Trash collection in Carpinteria will not be affected by the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. Day, with regular trash scheduled for pick up on Jan. 19, 2023.

Harrison Industries reminds residents they can place three carts curbside per week, and that waste is collected weekly. All food waste should be placed in closed bags, and all bags should be placed in the yard waste cart. Learn more at ejharrison.com.

Rain, beach advisory issued

Santa Barbara County issued a beach and beach advisory Tuesday, warning residents to avoid swimming or entering creeks, oceans and other waterways at least three days after a rain event, to avoid coming into contact with untreated storm water.

Coming into contact with untreated storm water can lead to diarrhea, vomiting, ear infections, chills, fever or rashes, the public health department said. Sport harvesters should also wait at least 10 days to harvest shellfish, due to the potential risk of bacterial contamination from pesticides, herbicides and motor oil grease.

THE LAY OF THE LAND

Why do you live here? Or if you are visiting, why did you choose Carpinteria? In fact, why are you reading this newspaper?

Responses to these questions vary, but frequently include references to the beach, mountains, weather, friendly people, easy-going vibe, small-town charm and a community that cares for each other.

Over the decades, Carpinterians have fiercely defended this town from anything they considered a threat to what makes this place wonderful. Any development proposal is measured against the standard of whether it maintains or threatens what we value most, often described as our small beach town character.

The Carpinteria we see today is a result of these efforts. Even the fact the city incorporated in 1965 was due to a desire for local residents to have more local control over key decisions. What have been the outcomes of some of those decisions?

Why do you live here?

Today we have the Salt Marsh Nature Preserve instead of a marina. We have the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve instead of an oil refinery (a 1968 proposal) or a 150-room hotel plus 287 condos plus 25,000 square feet of retail stores (a 1990 nearly approved proposal). We have no residential units over 30 feet high anywhere in town instead of tall view-blocking apartments and condos. We have limits on short-term rentals instead of losing even more housing for local residents. We have sound city finances significantly benefited by over $3 million per year in additional local sales tax revenue from Measure X instead of the city trying to figure out what services it must cut to balance the budget.

Over the years in this column, I have tried to provide information and motivation to nudge the reader to engage in local government decision making. I don’t know if it has anything to do with this column, but I am gratified when I see a community member share their view on a local issue in a comment at a city hearing or a letter to the Coastal View News. This is a common occurrence, and it is not just the same few of us every time. For any given topic, people may speak up who had never attended any city hearings before. This is fantastic!

I am also surprised and impressed how often I hear someone mention they saw some discussion at a city hearing

You may have heard the aphorism that you don’t get to complain about the outcome of an election if you didn’t vote. I strongly feel that also applies to governmental decisions – if you don’t participate in the process, you don’t get to complain about the outcome.

by watching Carpinteria’s Government Access TV (Cox channel 21). These hearings are generally not as action-packed or entertaining as other options on TV, but they really are important, and can kind of draw you in once you start watching one of them.

As we roll into the New Year, many important decisions lie ahead of us. Some will be related to specific project proposals (likely including the Surfliner Inn), and some related to planning policy issues including the city’s Housing Element and General Plan updates, and the county’s proposed rezoning of areas outside the urban boundary for high-density housing as part of its Housing Element update.

Each of these issues is complex, and sometimes it is not clear when and how

to make your voice heard as an issue winds its way through a series of procedural steps and hearings. But with a little effort it is usually not too difficult to figure things out from the information published by the city or county on their websites and elsewhere. News stories (especially in the Coastal View News) often provide a good overview of what’s going on and when your input is most needed.

You may have heard the aphorism that you don’t get to complain about the outcome of an election if you didn’t vote. I strongly feel that also applies to governmental decisions – if you don’t participate in the process, you don’t get to complain about the outcome.

Local government is truly “of the people, for the people, by the people,” and it only works if we the people participate both in elections and, just as importantly, as partners in governing. We all have a say in our own future, but we have to actually say it. What is important to remember is that in Carpinteria the decision-makers are our neighbors, our friends. They want to hear from us!

Help them protect Carpinteria’s small beach town character and keep it the place we choose to live.

Mike Wondolowski is president of the Carpinteria Valley Association (facebook. com/carpinteriavalleyassociation), a local organization dedicated to maintaining the small beach town nature of our community. In over 30 years of involvement in planning issues, he has witnessed visionary successes, as well as decisions that were later widely regretted. When not stuck indoors, he can often be found enjoying Carpinteria’s treasures including kayaking and snorkeling along the coast, running or hiking on the bluffs or the Franklin Trail, or “vacationing” as a tent camper at the State Beach.

Against rezoning 12 Carpinteria properties

I am a long-time resident of Carpinteria and am very concerned with proposed rezoning.

It is unacceptable to rezone 12 additional properties outside the established urban boundary line in Carpinteria, especially when in the entire rest of the county, only a single such rezone is proposed.

Unfair housing burden on Carpinteria

As a resident of Carpinteria, I oppose the rezoning of 12 properties in Carpinteria for “Housing Element Update.” The county proposes to rezone 12 areas just outside the Carpinteria city limit to allow high-density housing.

All these areas are outside the established “urban boundary line.” The remainder of the county, there is only

one single property outside of the urban line being proposed for rezoning. This is an unbalanced and unacceptable proposal. The county’s own Environmental Scoping Document for Housing Element update states: “Consistent with county policy, growth would be focused within existing urban areas and would minimize conversion of agricultural and open space lands, especially outside the Urban-Rural Boundary Line.”

The county is flagrantly disregarding this policy for the Carpinteria Valley. Why is that? This is violating the good planning principles and the county’s own policy. This impacts Carpinteria residents negatively!

It is unacceptable that Carpinteria should bear more than its share of the county’s housing requirements! It is not acceptable to rezone 12 properties outside the established urban boundary line in Carpinteria, especially when in the rest of the entire county only a single such rezone is proposed!

VIEWPOINT

Carpinteria cannabis farmers work to solve odor across the valley

Coastal View News published five stories in the past two weeks covering various cannabis developments all in Carpinteria Valley. As president of CARP Growers, our local cannabis farmers group, I wanted to share the farming industry’s perspective on the state of local cannabis farming.

Locally, the biggest challenge we have faced is controlling odor. CARP Growers has been working in partnership with the Santa Barbara Coalition for Responsible Cannabis for over a year as we use data, science and technology to advance how cannabis odor is eliminated in Carpinteria Valley.

We are excited to share that continued investments by CARP Growers and member farms have led to the most detailed cannabis odor studies conducted to date. We know more about cannabis odor now than ever before, and new technology created for greenhouses has now been validated in third-party studies. In order to resolve odor impacts, the local industry has provided the investment and cooperation to advance new odor abatement products and technologies.

Data from the portal will help farms learn more about neighbors’ experiences and address odor impacts in real time. If impacts persist, CARP Growers member farms will make changes to odor abatement strategies until the issue is resolved.

Carpinteria growers deployed a network of weather stations in Carpinteria Valley early this year to help determine how meteorological conditions influence cannabis odor and to establish if there are wind and weather patterns that correlate to when and where cannabis odors are most prevalent.

A reader sends a halo to Ryan Moore for bringing dirt back to Carpinteria.

Not every farm will have identical approaches to eliminating odors as part of their Odor Abatement Plan (the name of county-approved plans to treat cannabis odors, also referred to as OAP). However, all member farms are committed to responding to all neighbors who have concerns about odor and must act upon receiving a valid odor report from the community.

Carpinteria Valley has been a hub for cannabis odor science and technology, and we look forward to broadening the way we work with community members to address odor, and continuing to deliver results in the new year.

A reader sends a halo to everyone who supported the Playa Del Sur 4-H this year. “The members are looking forward to another successful year.”

Thank you, Asa, for being such a dedicated community member and for giving up so much of your time to bring lovely live theater to our community.”

A reader sends a halo to Tami and John at Robitaille’s for their constant smiles and over-the-top customer service. “The wedding favors were loved by all and brought a bit of Carpinteria to the Seattle wedding!”

A reader sends a halo to those who acknowledge people with disabilities. “When you encounter a person in a wheelchair or walking with a walker, please smile and say hello to that person.”

A reader sends a halo to Risdon’s Carpinteria Tire and Wheel Center next to the Palm Lofts on Palm. “They do a great job with tires and wheel alignment.”

Carpinteria Bird Count finds record number of species Organizer

John Callender finds his “white whale” of

Organizers of the Christmas Carpinteria Bird Count found a record number of bird species in this year’s count – held Dec. 17 – with 162 species spotted.

Nancy Baron, who participated in the bird count on Shepard’s Mesa, told CVN the Audubon Christmas Bird Count, which takes place across the United States, is a 123-year-old Christmas Tradition. It is the longest-running community science bird project in the world, she added; Carpinteria’s is run by Carpinteria birders, including John Callender, Tom Beland, Laurel Loubie and other Carpinterians.

Within a 15-mile diameter more than 60 participants spread across Carpinteria on Dec. 17, ultimately counting more than 162 bird species – four more than previously recorded. Of those, seven had never been seen before in Carpinteria’s count: the King Eider – never recorded in Santa Barbara County – a Long-Tailed Duck, a Mountain Quail, a Townsend’s Solitaire, an American Dipper, a Vermillion Flycatcher and a Tennessee Warbler.

“It was a lot of fun this year,” Callender told CVN. “We had good weather, and there were some prospects for rain, but by the time we got to the count day, it was great.” Callender said there is a “significant luck factor” that comes with bird counting, and that this year, there were “a lot of good birders out in the field.”

He has been participating in the count within Santa Barbara County since 2009, and said it was “very gratifying” to participate.

“It’s a celebration of birds, birdwatching, and a chance for people to contribute to citizen science,” he said. “Bird watching is something I really love doing. I’m usually bird watching by myself when I’m out in the field. But there’s also a social aspect to it. Especially if you’re hoping to see rare birds – a lot of people

birds

who are interested in seeing rarities will also show up there.”

This year, Callender met his personal goal, with the sighting of the Mountain Quail. “We did have some birds that I’ve been trying for us to get for a while, but that are just hard to see or hear, and Mountain Quail was one of them,” he added.

“For years John Callender wanted to get the Mountain Quail on the count, but it never happened – it was his ‘white whale,’ a la Moby Dick, and this year it finally happened – twice,” Baron told CVN.

Callender added the count is open to all ages and all ability levels, and will return next Christmas.

A full list of this year’s birds found in Carpinteria can be seen at: ebird.org/ tripreport/90544.

Jennifer’s Yoga & Fitness is getting Carpinteria up and movin’

CVN

Conceivably, many Carpinterians have a New Year’s intention to add more movement and self-care to their routines. Or, perhaps trying something new is on resolution lists. Jennifer Mackie Schmitz is eager to guide new and seasoned students with approachable and affordable open-air classes. In the following interview, Mackie Schmitz shares more about her class location and offerings.

CVN: In early 2020, when you designated Linden Field as the location for your weekly classes, did you expect it to be temporary?

Jennifer Mackie Schmitz: Yes, absolutely! It was the heart of the pandemic, and the gyms were still closed. I knew we needed to get out and exercise and it was my friend Leana – who also had taken my classes previously – who motivated me to just start teaching on Linden Field.

What do you appreciate most about teaching outdoors? What are the challenges?

The beauty of being outside in nature, in such a gorgeous place, and getting to look at the sky and the trees instead of a ceiling and walls, is wonderful! I also

love getting the people visiting from out of town who say that it was the highlight of their trip as well as being grateful for my regulars who have been coming for over two years. Of course, the weather can be a challenge, but we’re fortunate enough to live where we can have classes year-round with very few cancellations.

For those that would like to renew or begin a fitness routine and don’t know where to start, which of your classes would you recommend for easing more movement into their life?

All you have to do is just show up and do what you can. I welcome all levels in each of my classes. It depends whether you want to start a workout or yoga and Pilates routine… or even better, try them all!

What is your class schedule and the fee?

I offer yoga Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at 9 a.m., a blend of cardio and strength classes Wednesday and Friday 9 a.m., and a mat Pilates following yoga Saturdays at 10:15 a.m. No need to book ahead of time. All classes are donation-based, and anything is appreciated – even avocados, ha! If you have any questions, email Jennifer at jdayemackie@ gmail.com.

What are some of your favorite businesses in Carpinteria?

I love Carpinteria for all of its local businesses and I appreciate each one and all of the hard work and love that goes into this town, so I can’t think of a favorite. But a huge thank you to the State Park for welcoming us to continue our classes for two-and-a half years now, and we will hopefully continue for as long as the future can see!

On Warrior Spirit

In Carpinteria, Warrior Spirit Never Dies.

After two years as sports editor for Coastal View News, I’ve been lucky enough to cover and be a part of the deeply rooted sports community here in Carpinteria. I’ve been able to see the magic in the local traditions, where almost everybody in town was a Warrior, or knows somebody who currently plays for Carpinteria.

On Friday nights at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium, the entire community comes out to cheer for the football team, the band and the cheerleading squad and chow down on the CHS Boosters’ “world famous” tri-tip sandwiches.

There is a deep football tradition in Warrior Country: Carpinteria holds a CIF Southern Section record of 66 consecutive league wins without a loss and has six total CIF-SS championships. Former NFL star Chris Gocong got his start in the Warrior red and black, and legendary coach Lou Panizzon led Carpinteria to three straight football titles in 1987,1988 and 1989. Panizzon also led Carpinteria to back-to-back Tri-Valley league titles in track and field in 1979 and 1980 and took the baseball team to its first-ever CIF title in 1974.

And although the Warriors have had a tough run in the two previous seasons –finishing 0-2 in the Covid-shortened 2020 season, and 0-10 in 2021 before breaking the losing streak with four wins this season – those Friday nights are still special, and when the team runs out on the field with its captains hoisting the “Warrior Spirit Never Dies” flags, the community comes together.

These days, Carpinteria is keeping its winning tradition in other sports. Living within walking distance to the ocean in one of the most laid-back beach towns in the world, it should come as no surprise that the water sports are becoming the main draw for Carpinteria’s most talented youngsters.

It starts with Carpinteria’s Junior Guards program, which is where many of the future Warriors stars get going. The program is central to summertime for many Carpinteria kids, and it opens the door for the Aquatics Club and other club teams that compete in youth swim meets and water polo tournaments.

That community atmosphere leads to kids that have been swimming and competing together for years, and when they get to the high school level they excel. Carpinteria High School water polo coaches Stephen Kim and Jon Otsuki take

These student athletes deserve all the attention they can get, for their hard work both on and off the field, and I’m fortunate enough to be able to shine a little bit of light on the kids that are keeping a decades-long Warrior tradition.

these kids and make them into teams that can make deep playoff runs.

There’s also an abundance of local talent in Carpinteria. In 2021, both the boys’ water polo and swim team clinched CIF Division 5 titles. Several members of those teams – including Asher Smith, Justin Main and goalie Jacob Taff – were still on the team this year, wreaking havoc against top-tier talent after being moved up to Division 2. On the girls side, goalie Erin Otsuki has become a force in the net and senior Ainslee Alexander is already leading the team in scoring.

Alexander is another perfect example of what’s great about Carpinteria sports: the multi-sport athlete. Like many Warriors, the senior competes in volleyball, water polo and track and field.

Her younger sister, Averi, is already following her footsteps. In Carpinteria, it’s common to see siblings sharing the playing field, or parents coaching their kids. On the tennis court, sisters Sasha and Zahra Porinsh play side-by-side. On the cross-country team, brother and sister Hugo and Iltze Alvarado run together. Girls golf coach Craig Cook’s best player this season was his daughter, freshman

Jamaica Cook, who is also becoming a star on the basketball court alongside fellow freshman Charlotte Cooney (whose family connections are even deeper, as the daughter of Carpinteria Athletic Director and baseball coach Pat Cooney, and granddaughter to legendary coach Panizzon; her older sister, Kate, graduated from Carpinteria last year after playing soccer, running track and cross country, and winning the 2020 Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award).

Sports in this town are so interconnected, and so ingrained in the community, and it’s beautiful to see. But it doesn’t happen without the support of everybody, and it’s important that these amazing athletic feats don’t go unnoticed. This year, Carpinteria’s girls tennis team had an amazing run, with Cooney and doubles partner Ariana Lounsbury going almost an entire season without dropping a set. It was arguably one of the most remarkable runs in recent memory, even

though the bleachers might not have been as packed as they are at the football stadium on Friday nights.

These student athletes deserve all the attention they can get, for their hard work both on and off the field, and I’m fortunate enough to be able to shine a little bit of light on the kids that are keeping a decades-long Warrior tradition. To our readers: I encourage you all to buy into the Warrior spirit, whether you are a CHS graduate remembering the glory days or not. Pack into the gym to check out senior Kainoa Glasgow, who is putting up more than 20 points a game; pop into Carpinteria Community Pool to see how far the Warriors water polo girls run this postseason and check out the talented boys and girls soccer teams as they finish out the winter sports season. Keep the Warrior spirit alive.

There’s still plenty of sports action this year, and it’s just as important to support your local sports as it is to support the college and pro athletes. I hope I can continue to bring you the local sports news, and I look forward to hearing from the community about what type of sports stories you’d like to see – former Warriors stars? Action sports? Gaming? Even if you just want to chat about local sports, feel free to reach out to me at sports@ costalview.com.

Ryan P. Cruz is the sports editor for Coastal View News. This is the first installment of a monthly column where he will explore local sports, sports history and what’s in store for the future of Carpinteria sports.

PASTRIES IN PARADISE

HEATHER GIACONE

For this month’s Pastry in Paradise, I am going to keep it short and sweet. As I’m writing this, I’m currently trying to beat a giant storm on the East Coast to fly to New York to see my family. I thought this recipe would be a great recipe to share because it makes the perfect holiday treat to share with your friends and family. No one loves a better gift than something homemade that is buttery, chewy and delicious. I hope you all enjoy this holiday season! Cheers!

Yields: 1 - 8” by 8” Pyrex pan

Ingredients:

Vegetable oil spray

3 cup sugar

3 cup evaporated milk

1 T vanilla extract

¾ cup heavy cream

2 ¼ cup corn syrup

½ stick or 2-ounce unsalted butter

1 t sea salt + more for garnishing

Equipment needed: Candy or fry thermometer

Instructions:

Spray an 8”x8” glass or metal pan with vegetable oil spray and line with parchment paper, then spray again on top of the parchment paper. Set aside.

Cut butter into small dice and set aside.

Combine the sugar, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, heavy cream and corn syrup in a large saucepan. Stir constantly while bringing to a boil on high heat. Cook to 230 degrees F. Stir in butter. Continue cooking and constantly stirring until caramel reaches 239 degrees F. Stir in sea salt and immediately pour caramel into the prepared pan. Cool completely.

Using an oiled knife, cut caramels into desired shape and size. I like little bars. Sprinkle with a little extra sea salt and wrap in oiled parchment paper if desired. Enjoy!

Free Flowing

To be at the headwaters of a river is a special moment. It’s where its essence begins and delivers life to the creatures around it. It may start with a mere trickle percolating out of a crack in a rock, but soon that trickle begins to flow, and the cubic inches increase as the trail crisscrosses downslope over the serpentine ebb.

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS

CHUCK GRAHAM

The trail and chaparral surrounding Big Pine Mountain were still cloaked in knee deep snow. It was a chilly remnant of December storms that had recently soaked the backcountry and left a decent snowpack in the Los Padres National Forest – the only winter rains of 2021.

Malek Mehai, Forest Van Stein, Danny Trudeau and I were backpacking our way to the Sisquoc River via Bluff Camp. As the day wore on from warm to frigid in a matter of just a few miles, microclimates swirled around Big Pine, the eastern fringe of the San Rafael Range, and the highest summits in Santa Barbara County and the Dick Smith Wilderness at 6,320 feet.

Bushwhacked

To get to that lofty point, the day before was spent bushwhacking our way mightily through overgrown chaparral for a solid seven miles. Some of the growth was well over our heads, as we thrashed and ascended upwards. There was no water source, and the route had been long since closed, the old, shrouded 4x4 track not found on the map.

By nightfall we had reached Buckhorn Road, and we were grateful for the patches of snow found on the dirt road, just enough moisture to push us forward to Bluff Camp. Once at Bluff Camp, all was quiet. No one was around and water was an immediate priority. We found the creek behind the camp, hidden beyond the well. As much rain as the forest received in December 2021, some water sources were still barely flowing or not at all just a couple weeks after those rains.

However, our water bottles and bladders were brimming, and sleep was easy to come by beneath towering pines, the forever hoots of a great horned owl and a cool, crisp starry night.

Early the next morning we walked upward toward Big Pine where hazy views of the Channel Islands National Park faded away in our rearview mirrors. A significant, year-round runnel beckoned, its headwaters tucked away in crumbly shady shale and gritty sandstone of the Transverse Ranges. And still, the winding Sisquoc River feeds another river that flows out to the Pacific Ocean on the Central California Coast.

Quail Run

The Sisquoc is one of 16 rivers in California designated as Wild and Scenic, part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. The rivulet originates on the north slope of Big Pine Mountain, and the runnel is entirely free flowing. The Sisquoc runs for 57 miles and is a tributary of the Santa Maria River. It first converges with the Cuyama River before it merges with the Santa Maria River, where it reaches the sweeping coastal sand dunes near the Guadalupe Sand Dunes National Wildlife Refuge, north of Point Conception. In the Chumash language Sisquoc means “Quail.” It is one of the last bastions for steelhead trout, western pond turtles and arroyo toads, endangered backcountry fauna still clinging to natural freshwater arroyos.

After trudging through persistent knee-high snowpack rounding Big Pine Mountain, the gradual descent through pine and oak forests eventually brought us to the soft, forgiving scree at Alamar Saddle. We said so long to our last views of the coast and Channel Islands, and quickly descended beneath the dense canopy of towering Douglas fir, sturdy oak groves, bay, cedar and sycamore trees that cast shade over the Upper Sisquoc.

Once beneath the canopy, we parted ways with the arid chaparral, and immediately felt cool moisture hanging in the air. Leaf litter too was still soddened from December rains, the low-lying sun on the western horizon never warming the upper reaches of the Sisquoc during the winter. Patches of snow persisted, and tributaries gushed, feeding the lifeblood of the San Rafael Wilderness.

Upper Sisquoc

The first several camps along the Upper Sisquoc River were our favorites. It was cold day and night, that cool, shaded canopy nearly blocked out all sunlight, except for a few long shafts of sunrays that penetrated the forest floor. A warm fire was the solution to thermoregulating and drying out soggy, crusty socks.

Black bear sign was evident too. Although we never saw any of Ursus americanus, their mark was everywhere

scratched on trees, their fresh mounds of scat piled atop damp leaf litter and their impressive spoor found along the open trail. The Upper Sisquoc looked and felt very much like great black bear habitat. It’s their home.

Maybe that’s why Upper and Lower Bear Camps are called as such in the Upper Sisquoc? The camps are remote, and every time I’ve spend time there, it always appears like great foraging potential within their backcountry biome.

Thunderbirds

It’s been off limits for decades, a sanctuary for Pleistocene remnants hidden within the forest. Endangered California condors will always need the protection of such environments, but the Sisquoc Condor Sanctuary is a gem hidden away within a backcountry wilderness that possesses many.

Created in 1937 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the sanctuary was the first of its kind for these incredible raptors. It encompasses 1,200 acres of backcountry wilderness, hugging the southwest fringe of the Sisquoc River. Remote and choked off with overgrown brush and fallen trees, the Sisquoc Condor Sanctuary is the kind of ideal habitat condors need to thrive.

Currently there are no condors nesting on the towering, sheer cliffs of the sanctuary, but that doesn’t mean they don’t soar over it, or stop briefly to roost. Condors reared in captivity and released into the wild are fitted with tracking devices. In fact, some of that data has revealed random visitation by reintroduced condors that on average soar 150 miles a day.

Backcountry Junction

As we approached the South Fork of

the Sisquoc, there was a great divide in the river, a meeting place, a convergence of trails veering off in all directions. White Ledge and the San Rafael Mountains loomed on the western fringe. The Sweetwater Trail, steep and seemingly never-ending, traversed northeastward into the Sierra Madre Range. The Sisquoc continued over its boulder-strewn self, wild and scenic to the end.

Resting at the South Fork of the Sisquoc River, the sounds of a crackling fire were a welcomed respite after another stellar day traipsing down from the headwaters of the Sisquoc between the San Rafael and Sierra Madre Mountains.

The South Fork cabin was also a welcomed site as a wisp of smoke billowed from the woodburning stove within. Still, I elected for my tent pitched beneath burly oak trees, and where I drifted off to sleep, serenaded by croaking tree frogs and the unfettered flow of the Sisquoc.

In 2022, Carpinteria saw a return to winning form for some programs, and the beginning of new chapters with new coaches in several sports at Carpinteria High School.

In the spring, boys volleyball coach Mickey Caughey ended his career with a magical run to the CIF Division 3 State Southern Regional, where the Warriors finished as runners up but gave their coach a fond farewell with a 21-9-1 overall record.

Under the Friday night lights of Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium, the Warriors football squad ended a 14-game losing streak that stretched back two seasons and finished the year 4-6.

In basketball, girls coach Henry Gonzales broke an 18-game losing streak from 2021, and the Warriors already have seven wins this season. New boys head coach Jackson Hall already picked up his first wins, led by Carpinteria’s superstar Kainoa Glasgow.

Carpinteria’s water sports continue to excel, even after being promoted into higher divisions due to their recent success. Coaches Stephen Kim and Jon Otsuki helped lead the boys and girls water polo to strong seasons in 2022, and local youth programs like the Aquatics Club and Junior Guards are fostering a strong culture in the local community.

In 2022, freshmen have jumped right into contributing at the varsity level for Carpinteria. Charlotte Cooney has found success on the tennis and basketball courts, as well as Jamaica Cook, who helped lead Carpinteria’s girls golf team in their first season back in action and has already become a top defender and rebounder for the Warriors basketball team. In soccer, freshman Evelyn Lara has already become one of the team’s top scorers and facilitators.

With 2022 in the books, now it’s time for the winter sports to finish their seasons, and time to look back at some of the great local student athletes with some of our best pictures of the year, taken by CVN photographers Rosana Swing and David deMoulpied.

Asher Smith (3) was the Warriors’ leading scorer this year in boys water polo. Whenever Jacob Taff was in the net, the boys water polo team always had a fighting chance. Judah Torres (32) looks for a man to block against Morro Bay. Freshman phenom Evelyn Lara (23) scores her first goal of the year for the Warriors. Carpinteria’s Bryan Jimenez (4) fights through pouring rain and tight defense against Dos Pueblos.

Carpinteria girls water polo goalie Erin Otsuki gets her hands on any shot that goes her way; in 2022, the multi-sport athlete helped the Warriors find success in water polo and swim meets.

Multi-sport athlete Ariana Lounsbury, pictured, was all over the place for the Warriors this year, but her most impressive performance was going undefeated with tennis doubles partner Charlotte Cooney for every match through the regular season in 2022.
