City Hall responds to Covid-19 surge
In response to the rapid increase of Covid-19 cases in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, Carpinteria City Hall will implement new measures to ensure the safety of staff. City Hall will remain open, but lobby access will require screening for Covid-19 symptoms. Other precautions that may impact the public are seating limitations at public meetings in the Council Chambers to promote social distancing. Members of the public are also encouraged to participate in City Council meetings through Zoom rather than in person to reduce the risk of transmission. “Taking reasonable precautionary measures is necessary to help protect our employees and to allow us to continue to deliver important services to the community,” City Manager Dave Durflinger said.

Carpinteria woman arrested on accessory to murder charge
A 24-year-old Carpinteria resident was arrested on Friday on charges stemming from the Jan. 2021 Liberty Street murders on the Santa Barbara eastside. Jasmine Ochoa, a Carpinteria resident, was arrested by police around 9 a.m. on Jan. 7 “without incident” on the 800 block of Walnut Avenue, according to Ethan Ragsdale from the Santa Barbara City Police Department. Ochoa, the girlfriend of Angel Valera, is accused of aiding and harboring her boyfriend after the Liberty Street murders. Valera was arrested last year and was charged with murder, committing more than one murder and committing murder to further a criminal street gang. “Detectives have determined through further investigation that the girlfriend of arrestee and suspected shooter Angel Varela is alleged to have aided, assisted, and harbored Varela after the murders occurred,” Ragsdale said. While searching Ochoa’s residence, evidence related to the murders was discovered by police, according to Ragsdale. Ochoa’s full charges include criminal street terrorism and accessory to murder. She is being held without bail.

Investigation finds over a dozen faculty perpetrators of sexual misconduct with students at Cate School Six individuals named in report for misconduct during ‘80s and ‘90s, and one in recent years BY DEBRA HERRICK Seventeen former faculty members or administrators of Cate School in Carpinteria have been identified as engaging in sexual misconduct with students, including grooming and sexual relations, with the earliest perpetrator a faculty member in the 1980s and 1990s. The investigation was initiated by the school after several former students came forward with incidents of sexual misconduct involving faculty. The Oppenheimer Investigations Group, an independent consultant firm hired by Cate, spoke to 54 individuals – the majority former students – along with current and former administrators and faculty. While 17 individuals were identified by the study, only seven were named based on the severity of the misconduct and other criteria. Based on “a preponderance of evidence” the report found that accounts of seven former male faculty members were substantiated: former teachers Kirk Phelps (1983–1985; 1991–1996); Robert Kusel (1983–1988); David Mochel (1989–1993; 2001–2012); Andy Campbell (1988–1993) and Da’Jon James (2019– 2020); former teacher and Head of School Scott McLeod (1965–1993); and former assistant to the director of development and girls dorm supervisor, Martin Lowenstein (late 1980s). Kirk Phelps Phelps is accused by a former student of sexually abusing her more than 20 times while she attended Cate in the 1980s, starting at the end of her sophomore year. The student provided numerous documentation, including photographs of herself and Phelps, as well as hundreds of pages of letters. Additionally, observations from two witnesses corroborated her account. In 2019, the student brought the incidents to the attention of Cate administration and subsequently reached a settlement agreement with Cate and Phelps. Previous administrators were not aware of any allegations against Phelps and were not involved in the settlement negotiations, according to the report. Current Head of School Ben Williams told investigators that when the student came forward he accepted the student’s account as credible and wanted to repair the harm caused in the manner she saw fit. The school created a fund for survivors of sexual abuse, along with counseling and a space for students to
share concerns about sexual harassment and assault. Phelps did not respond to investigators’ request for a meeting. Scott McLeod McLeod, who was a teacher for 10 years before serving as head of school for 18 years, is accused of grooming a student while at Cate and engaging in a sexual encounter with her after she graduated. According to the report, during the student’s junior year at Cate (in the 1980s), she and McLeod began exchanging letters and notes, and that over time, McLeod’s letters became intimate and sexual. A few months after she graduated and turned 18, McLeod attended a conference near where she was living and they met for dinner and drinks. McLeod booked an
Two participants had specific accounts of witnessing or directly learning about Kusel’s misconduct; however no students directly involved in these incidents as victims or targets came forward with their stories. Investigators used the term “grooming” to characterize “normalizing sexually charged behaviors in an effort to chip away at a young person’s boundaries and sense of normal or appropriate behavior.” An example of grooming given in this case is Kusel allegedly taking a shower while a student was in his apartment. In addition to evidence that Kusel groomed students to be his sexual partners after graduating, the report found that it was “uncontested” that Kusel had sexual relationships with two Cate graduates, noting that there was also a credible
An independent consultant firm hired by Cate spoke to 54 individuals – the majority former students – along with current and former administrators and faculty. While 17 individuals were identified by the study, only seven were named based on the severity of the misconduct and other criteria. adjoining room for her in his hotel and they went upstairs together where McLeod followed her into her room. The student said McLeod asked if they could cuddle and he began kissing her. When she expressed discomfort, McLeod stopped initiating sexual contact “but they spent the night in the same bed, both naked,” the report stated. McLeod acknowledged having dinner and drinks and booking an adjoining room for the student, but denied entering her room, making sexual advances or sleeping in the same bed with her. The report indicated that until the investigation, no Cate administrators had any knowledge of McLeod’s misconduct. Robert Kusel Eight former students and one former faculty member spoke to investigators about concerns regarding Kusel, a teacher in the 1980s, demonstrating poor boundaries and engaging in grooming behaviors. Evidence was also provided that Kusel engaged in sexual activity with students after they graduated.
report concerning a third graduate. Kusel depicted himself to investigators as “the victim of unwelcome sexual advances.” However, the report noted that the evidence supports a different scenario: “Kusel’s demeanor, which was oft-described as flirtatious, likely encouraged a certain response from female students.” One former student stated that “she felt less like a student and more like an outlet for the sexual needs of male instructors, like Kusel.” Investigators did not find any evidence that administrators were contemporaneously aware of Kusel’s sexual misconduct, however there is some evidence that at least one administrator was aware that Kusel “lacked boundaries with students.” Martin Lowenstein Investigators found persuasive evidence to support the accusation that Lowenstein had a sexual relationship with a student in the late 1980s. While the student did not participate in the investigation, witnesses provided credible evidence to “a consistent and persuasive account.” The report indicates that the school was made aware of Lowenstein’s misconduct and “failed to take action.” At least two school administrators were found to have knowledge of the behavior but there were no records of the report or any disciplinary action from the school in Lowenstein’s employee records. A year after Lowenstein left his position at Cate, the then head of school, McLeod, wrote him a letter of recommendation to business school. David Mochel Evidence from seven Cate alumni and three former faculty members support a student’s allegation that she and Mochel had a sexual relationship – kissing and touching intimate body parts – during her senior year (sometime between 1989 and 1993). Mochel also was known to have a sexual relationship with a graduate, and was reported to have engaged in inappropriate touching and grooming behavior with students during his first tenure teaching at Cate.
Mochel taught at Cate from 1989 to 1993, and from 2001 to 2012. He lived on campus during both teaching tenures and then continued to live on campus through the spring of 2021. According to Mochel, who provided investigators with a response, the relationship with the student began when she told him she had a crush on him. “Mochel said he had an ‘emotional reaction’ to (the student’s) admission. He said he did not remember how their relationship progressed, but stated that on one occasion he and (the student) were intimate in his apartment; this encounter included kissing and putting his hand under her shirt… He stated, ‘I can’t say it’s not true,’ in response to (the student’s) allegation that he had advised her not to tell anyone… Mochel did not believe he and (the student) had kissed on any other occasion. However, he also stated, ‘I’m not saying it didn’t happen, but it’s so hard to imagine it happening’… Mochel said he was an ‘unhealthy person during his time at Cate’ and said he was in therapy to understand his actions as a younger man.” While there was evidence that some school administrators were aware of Mochel’s misconduct at the time it occurred, it wasn’t until 2012 that it was brought to the then head of school, Ben Williams, who subsequently hired an investigations firm that substantiated the student’s claim. Mochel was permitted to resign and continued to reside on campus because his wife was still employed by the school. Williams also told investigators that he did not believe Mochel posed an ongoing threat because the misconduct had occurred when he was much younger. Andy Campbell Eight former students came forward with accounts of Campbell, who taught music from 1988 to 1993, engaging in inappropriate behavior including sexual remarks, touching, massaging and grooming. Evidence also supported the claim that Campbell had an inappropriate romantic relationship – grooming – with a student that continued after she graduated. There was no evidence that they had sexual intercourse while she was a student, but Campbell admitted that they dated after she graduated. School administrators at the time, including then head of school, McLeod, were aware of Campbell’s misconduct but there was no formal response. Instead, McLeod stated that he spoke with Campbell and his account was “that Campbell was essentially permitted to be in a romantic relationship with a current Cate student, so long as he waited until after she graduated to begin openly dating her. Campbell was not terminated, written up, or formally reprimanded for his actions.” Da’Jon James The most recent case of sexual misconduct is that of James, who was director of vocal music from 2019–2020, and includes grooming, touching, kissing and sexual remarks. In the most serious allegation, substantiated by the report, a student described going to his room in November 2019 to watch television alone. Per the student’s account: “James spread his legs open so (the student) could lean back on his chest, ‘encircled’ her with his arms around her chest, and

Voters will decide the fate of Parking Lot #3 on Nov. 2022 ballot, council decides
BY EVELYN SPENCE
Carpinterians will decide the fate of Parking Lot #3 – the proposed site of the controversial Surfliner Inn – on the November 2022 ballot, following a unanimous vote by the city council on Monday. Monday’s decision was encouraged by public commenters both for and against the inn, the latter of who have long sought to put the issue of the Surfliner Inn to a vote of the people. Those against the Inn collected over 1,000 signatures on a petition to re-designate Parking Lot #3, seeking to prevent any development on the lot and modifying the city’s general plan to do so. Acting City Clerk Brian Barrett confirmed Monday that of the 1,075 signatures submitted on the Initiative to Save Parking Lot #3 – as it is colloquially known – 932 were determined to be valid. That left the council with three options: accept the petition as is, keeping Parking Lot #3 from development; put the issue on the Nov. 8, 2022 ballot; or hold a special election in April. After some discussion, the council went with the second option, after both public commenters and city staff pointed out perceived conflicts of interest with holding a special election. “Elections, as we have learned lately, are paramount (in that) the public has trust in their conduct,” City Manager Dave Durflinger said. Prior to the council’s vote, Councilmember Gregg A. Carty asked Carpinteria voters to be careful about misinformation. “This is true if you’re for or against any initiative. It’s important you do your homework and study it, and make your decision based on that,” Carty said. Compared to past meetings on the Surfliner Inn project, Monday’s meeting saw only saw a handful of public speakers, in-person and over Zoom. Public commenter Susan Allen defended city staff members’ abilities to do their jobs, noting they have been publicly accused of mishandling the Surfliner Inn

began kissing (her) neck and the top of her head. He also felt (her) chest through her sweatshirt. As James was doing this, he made comments such as, ‘I know this is wrong,’ and, ‘I shouldn’t be doing this. You’re a student.’” The student did not initially come forward because she worried that it would be her fault if James was fired. Instead, she confided in another student who also observed instances of inappropriate behavior. James admitted that he had been alone with the student watching TV and that he touched her leg but denied touching her breasts or sitting in the manner she described. “I am fully aware that I am not absolved from mistakes I’ve made and I’ve been talking to a therapist about it . . .” James told investigators, “in terms of (this student), I understand . . . that relationship was inappropriate.” Additionally, grooming behavior with other students was substantiated by reports from multiple students, one parent and the spouse of a faculty member. These reports included frequent hugging (including “tight and long frontal hugs”), touching, putting his hands around a student’s hips, telling a student he found her attractive, and playing “would you rather” and asking a question about drinking “a bucket of semen.”
The Surfliner Inn, a proposed boutique hotel for the Amtrak parking lot, will come under fire in the November election when an initiative that could block its development will be voted on by residents of Carpinteria.
“It truly saddens me how staff is being portrayed on this issue. In this chamber and through local news outlets, staff has been accused of being dishonest, ‘on the take,’ making secret deals. If that is the case, please show the rest of us the proof…”

project. “It truly saddens me how staff is being portrayed on this issue. In this chamber and through local news outlets, staff has been accused of being dishonest, ‘on the take,’ making secret deals. If that is the case, please show the rest of us the proof,” she said. “As staff will attest to, I often don’t agree with you, but never have found you anything but professional.” She also spoke strongly against changing the city’s general plan. “Creating our general plan is truly a joined effort. Now suddenly we have an L.A. attorney” – referencing an attorney quoted by people against the Surfliner
The school was first notified of James’ inappropriate comments, hugging and having a student sit on his lap in September 2019. The school opted to provide James with counseling and to place a letter in his personnel file. Over the next year, at least three more instances were reported and dealt with in a similar manner. Finally, in February 2020, James was terminated after a student told administrators that in October 2019, while at a movie, James “placed his hand on her thigh and left it there for a long period of time.” In response to why James was not terminated sooner, Jay Dorion, assistant head of school (2010-present), said, “I know what it looks like now. It looks like that to me now, and I fully understand the progression. Part of what we were trying to do is work with a new faculty member and one that we felt had great promise and trying to parse out the intention around his contact with students. It didn’t feel always in the moment as if his intentions were what I believe them to be now. I have been working with students in this capacity now for 30 years. I don’t take any responsibility more seriously than protecting students. It is not lost on me how it looks. In the moment, I felt we were trying to be very responsive to their concerns, and to a young man who seemed like he was really trying.” The full report may be read online at https://www.cate.org/wp-content/ uploads/2021/12/CCA-Investigation-2021-OIG-Report.pdf.
– “telling us the writers of our city constitution are wrong. That our city attorneys are reading the Initiative too closely. “The L.A. attorney called it a ‘strained reading.’ Our city attorneys are paid to do just that: inform everyone in this city what could be a legal issue. Why should we be listening to an outside party?” Amrita Salm, a vocal opponent of the Surfliner Inn project, spoke against a special election prior to the council’s vote. She brought up issues with both a perceived conflict of interest and the cost
of a special election. “We urge the city to avoid the perceived conflict of interest associated with running an election and tallying the votes,” Salm said. Whitt Hollis, one of the developers of the proposed Surfliner Inn, also encouraged the council to place the issue on the November 2022 ballot rather than hold a special election. “The Surfliner Inn team strongly urges the council to… place the issue on the Nov. 8, 2022 ballot, to maximize the number of citizen votes while saving thousands of taxpayers’ money for the city staff,” Hollis said. If Carpinteria voters vote in favor of the initiative in November, the matter will then go to the Coastal Commission for certification, which handles changes to the city’s general plan.
The city approved two proclamations: the first designated January 2022 as Human Tracking Awareness month, and the second designated January 2022 as Carpinteria Business month.
New state laws come into effect BY DEBRA HERRICK
New year, new laws. From olive oil labels to minimum wage increases, hundreds of new California laws went into effect on Jan. 1, 2022. Here are five new California laws that are worth knowing about.
Permanent mail-in ballots
cused of nonviolent crimes. Mug shots are still available to the public through an open records request and only law enforcement is prohibited from posting them. The law is intended to protect people who have not yet been proven guilty, with supporters pointing to unconscious bias and the speed of spreading images on social media platforms.
California is now the eighth U.S. state to make universal distribution of vote-by-mail ballots permanent. All California voters will receive mail-in ballots for future elections, regardless of whether they signed up for absentee voting. California began this practice in 2020 as a temporary policy responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, but it will now be the norm.
Eliminating mandatory minimums – many of which were adopted in the height of the war on drugs – eliminates mandatory prison and jail sentences for some drug offenses. The law also allows judges to give probation instead of prison time in some instances.
Minimum wage increase
As of Jan. 1, all of California now has a minimum hourly wage of $15 for businesses with more than 25 employees and $14 for smaller businesses. California now has the highest minimum wage in the U.S., where the country’s average minimum wage is $7.25.
Mugshots on social media
Law enforcement agencies can no longer post on social media the mug shots of most people arrested and ac-
No mandatory minimums for drug crimes
A new law requires Californians to recycle food scraps and other leftovers by separating them from other trash items and tossing them in “green” or yard waste bins. The law is intended to keep divert food scraps from landfills, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Food and food products that can be recycled includes coffee grounds and filters, non-nylon tea bags, fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells, paper plates and paper food containers, paper towels and tissues.

Protect our seal colony
On Thursday, Jan. 6, just before sunset, a man chose to ride a small, rental electric bike across Jelly Bowl beach. He sped across the cove with a posted “Beach Closed” sign straight at a volunteer holding a stop sign who told him he was breaking the law. He rode into the seal sanctuary, circled and came back again aiming at the volunteer, who was now on the phone with Sheriff’s Dispatch. Volunteers at the overlook were horriﬁed but powerless as seals ﬂed into the sea. At the break of dawn the next morning, the ﬁrstborn pup in the harbor seal sanctuary was found dead. I’m hoping that any woman could identify with the mother seal who carried and nourished her developing pup for a full year. That seal experienced sheer terror from an intruder at her bedside: terror that brought on premature labor and the unfulﬁllment of her maternal plans to nourish a healthy oﬀspring. Seals bear but one pup a year. Our harbor seal colony is dwindling. It is one of the last colonies remaining in Southern California, and we are doing nothing to alter that course. Even the city-planned Harbor Seal Advisory Committee has not started yet. There are many living here who wonder: what are this city’s priorities? Preserving our quaint beach town is the highest priority according to city leaders. The seals are the symbol of our beautiful shoreline existence, and there are laws to protect these animals. It puzzles me. What forces prevent respect for this beloved icon? All it can be is ignorance of their peaceful tranquility. If you love the seals, please speak up, or show up to help.

No new cell facility in Beach Neighborhood
I was informed yesterday, Jan. 10, via a letter from the city of Carpinteria that a new, small cell wireless communications facility would be erected at 323 Elm St., within 300 feet of my home. The existing wood SoCal Edison pole would be replaced with a concrete one with attached antenna and shrouds. This installation poses health issues. In my brief, hurried research, a study done by Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD UC Berkeley (“Balancing Technology”), states that these facilities produce the following eﬀects, among others: increased cancer risk, cellular stress, genetic damage, learning and memory deﬁcits, neurological disorders and negative impacts on the general well-being in humans. This damage goes beyond the human race. There is growing evidence of harmful eﬀects to both plant and animal life. I am told the FCC has mandated more

I want to express my appreciation for the many travelogue adventures by Chuck Graham published in CVN each month in his column, “Unpredictable Wilderness.” I enjoy sitting beside my warm ﬁreplace and armchair traveling with him. I get to sip hot tea and let Chuck get stuck in blizzards, fog banks, windstorms and huge waves – all for my own entertainment.

Coastal View News welcomes your letters
CAN YOU HELP?
I let Chuck do the mountain biking, back-country hiking and channel crossings in his kayak, while I lay on soft cushions in my temperature-controlled living room. I don’t think I could paddle across the dangerous Santa Barbara Channel in the company of wild ocean creatures. I don’t think I could sleep on hard rocks on a wind-swept cliﬀ on San Miguel Island. If Mr. Graham isn’t being dive-bombed by hawks, pestered by foxes and squirrels, or sharing his sleeping bag with nibbling ﬁeld mice, he’s trudging through gale force winds on the Carrizo Plains. Yet he manages to ﬁnd humor in it – taking it all in stride. And that’s how we get to read his varied adventures, complete with great photos – in the comforts of our own home – thanks to Chuck Graham and CVN.

Shefﬁeld Drive off-ramp scheduled to reopen Jan. 18 Evans Avenue oﬀ-ramp will close on Jan. 23 for improvements
The on-ramp at Sheﬃeld Drive closed for construction on Tuesday, with an anticipated closure of six months. The oﬀ-ramp at Sheﬃeld Drive is scheduled to reopen on Jan. 18, 2022. The off-ramp at Evans Avenue is scheduled to close on Jan. 23. The construction on San Ysidro Road has also been rescheduled to Jan. 14, where workers will direct traﬃc between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. while crews focus on utilities. Several closures and detours on the Highway 101 construction project remain. On the northbound side: on Sunday nights between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m., one lane between Bailard Avenue and Sheﬃ eld Drive, and the on- and oﬀ ramps at Bailard Avenue, will be closed. Those same areas will be closed 8 p.m. through 7 a.m., Monday through Thursday nights. On Mondays through Thursdays, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., the on- and oﬀramps at Bailard Avenue and the oﬀ-ramp at Santa Monica Road will also be closed. On the southbound side: on Sunday nights, between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., one lane between Sheﬃeld Drive and Bailard Avenue, as well as the on-ramps at North Padaro Lane and South Padaro Lane, the oﬀ-ramp at Bailard Avenue and the oﬀramp at Casitast Pass Road will be closed. Those same areas will be closed Monday through Thursday nights between 8 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. The on-ramp at Santa Claus Lane opened at 7 a.m. on Jan. 12 – delayed due to an “unforeseen utility conﬂict,” according to a press release from the project. “A ﬁber optic line will be relocated by utility contractors prior to additional project improvements,” Kirsten Ayars, from the project, said.
In Summerland, construction crews continue to work on the new northbound bridge at the Sheﬃeld Drive interchange, and will grade soils, install rebar and pour concrete for new lanes in the area.
Along the 5700 block of Via Real, construction crews work on foundations for sound walls. At the Evans Avenue undercrossing, crews continue to work on retaining walls and new bridge improvements. At the Greenwell Creek, crews focus on new landscaping.
Construction crews are ﬁnishing up improvements at the Santa Monica and Via Real intersection. At the Franklin and Santa Monica Creek Bridges, construction crews are focusing on sound walls and other safety barriers; along Via Real, between Bailard Avenue and Carpinteria Creek, crews are also working on sound wall foundations.

Volunteers and staff of nonprofits Santa Barbara Channelkeeper and Heal the Ocean work to minimize the impacts of harmful contaminants from rainstorms by installing straw wattles, long tubes of compressed straw, that help contain fire-related pollutants.
SB Channelkeeper and Heal the Ocean partner to protect local creeks after Alisal Fire CVN REPORT
In the months since the Alisal Fire burned nearly 17,000 acres on the Gaviota Coast, protecting the burn scar from erosion and local waterways from fire-related contaminants has become increasingly important – especially during the season of winter storms. Santa Barbara Channelkeeper and Heal the Ocean are working together as part of a larger community effort to minimize the impacts of rainstorms washing harmful contaminants to local creeks. Thirteen structures were lost in the Alisal Fire, and many were located near Refugio Creek. Sediment, ash and toxic materials, such as asbestos, heavy metals and dioxin from burned sites, can flow into local creeks, impairing water quality, damaging habitats, and increasing risk of pollutant exposure for wildlife. Installing temporary stormwater management measures to prevent pollutants from being carried to the creek, the local water supply and the ocean has been critical. In early November, local community groups recognized the need to assist property owners with cleanup of burned structures and initiated a series of meetings. The Alisal Fire Assistance Project, a collaborative community aid effort made up of five partner organizations and spearheaded by the Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade, was the result of these conversations. Partners worked to assess the burned sites for pollution risk and developed a plan to help mitigate contaminated stormwater runoff. Channelkeeper also received guidance from the Russian Riverkeeper, an organization which played a critical lead role in protecting Sonoma County watersheds following the Walbridge and Glass Fires in 2020. In an early step in the project’s plan, Channelkeeper and Heal the Ocean leapt into action to protect areas in the Refugio Creek watershed from fire-related contaminants by installing stormwater control measures around burned structures before winter rains came. The Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade reached out to property owners to secure their approval and, over the course of three days, Channelkeeper’s six-person staff dug trenches and worked to install 45 straw wattles, long tubes of compressed straw, at 10 locations to contain fire-related pollutants.
Sediment, ash and toxic materials, such as asbestos, heavy metals and dioxin from burned sites, can flow into local creeks, impairing water quality, damaging habitats, and increasing risk of pollutant exposure for wildlife.
“Working closely with other community groups to protect local creeks and assist affected property owners helped hasten the immediate response needed before the recent rainstorms,” Ted Morton, Channelkeeper executive director, said. “Without the cooperation, we would not have been able to reach as many sites.” “Channelkeeper had the person-power in place, but we needed to find a way to quickly pay for the materials and supplies,” Channelkeeper’s science and policy director Ben Pitterle said. “That’s when Hillary Hauser from Heal the Ocean stepped in and offered to provide all of the materials that we needed to do this work.” ”Heal the Ocean raises funds for issues exactly like this,” Hillary Hauser, executive director of Heal the Ocean, said. “To keep these pollutants from getting into the watershed – and ocean – is crucial, and there is not a question about helping. We’re grateful for Channelkeeper doing all the heavy lifting.” Additional partners collaborating on the Alisal Fire Assistance Project include the Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade, Santa Barbara County Fire Safe Council and the Community Environmental Council. By sharing expertise, resources and project responsibilities, the five organizations said they hope to provide aid and address post-fire recovery effectively and quickly.

New CDPH isolation and quarantine guidelines do not apply to school settings
SUPERINTENDENT’S DESK DIANA RIGBY CUSD SUPERINTENDENT
We welcomed students and staff last week after the holiday break, and we are doing everything we can to make sure that staff and students are safe and healthy despite the highly contagious Omicron and Delta Covid-19 variants. We continue to implement health and safety protocols including school cleanliness, masking, testing, quarantining and supporting vaccines. We encourage staff and families to do all they can do to be safe as well. The new CDPH Isolation and Quarantine Guidance does not apply to school settings. Isolation for students and staff who test positive for Covid-19 requires a 10-day exclusion period. Posted on our website is the SBCPHD Symptoms Protocol for quarantine timelines that must be followed. Check students for symptoms before coming to school and keep them home if they are sick with fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea. Test for Covid-19 and follow isolation protocols. We appreciate parent support in keeping our staff and students healthy and safe as we return to school. All students, ages 5 and older are advised to get their vaccinations, and students 16 and older should also get their booster. Vaccinations are available at local pharmacies and Santa Barbara County Public Health. Albertsons hosted a vaccine clinic on Friday, Jan. 7, 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Carpinteria Middle School. Through the CDPH, the Santa Barbara County Education Office is expected to receive a shipment of at-home, rapid test kits for distribution to all county TK-12 public school districts. Each CUSD student received a free test kit at their school site last week. Additionally, CUSD participates in the Aptitude Covid-19 Testing Program and students and employees
Happy Heavenly Birthday, Mom !
will be able to receive a free test at Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara in the near future. Weekly testing of CUSD employees will continue at the District Office. It is recommended that all students and staff wear surgical masks at all times while indoors. CUSD is providing surgical masks for staff and has a limited supply for students.
January is time to acknowledge the school board and its role in supporting student achievement during School Board Recognition Month. We are proud to join more than 1,000 local educational agencies in the state in recognizing the contributions of our board members who, in this time of unprecedented challenges in nearly every sector of life, have worked tirelessly to help our district establish new ways of ensuring students continue to learn. Board members are our elected representatives and a vital link between the school district and the community. The board sets the foundation and vision for the district, directs resources where they are most needed and ensures accountability to the community by monitoring progress toward goals. Their end goal, of course, is to support and elevate student achievement. Please join me in saluting our hard-working board members Jayme Bray, Jaime Diamond, Sally Green, Andy Sheaffer, and Aaron Smith.
Additional support at CMS and CHS
The safety and security of students, academic progress, mental health and emotional well-being are the most important priorities for our schools. This year, at CHS we have added an additional assistant principal, counselor, mental health therapist, and security personnel. We have also hired additional teachers and instructional assistants to support special education students and those students who are failing English and Math. At CMS, we have added additional special education and reading intervention teachers, instructional assistants, security personnel, and office coordinator.
ESSER III Expenditure Plan
The ESSER III plan details how we will spend ESSER III on-time funds to address the impact of Covid-19 on our district before September 2024. The SBCEO is required to review and approve each district’s plan and in December 2021, the CUSD ESSER III plan was approved. It is posted on the district’s website, www. cusd.net.
Elementary Spring Curriculum Field Trips
Elementary students are looking forward to once again participating in the curriculum field trips for each grade level. TK/kindergarten will go to the Santa Barbara zoo; grade 1 will go to the Sea Center;
To prepare for the imminent winter storm and rainfall, a storm water management system was put into place at Summerland to assure all water runoff remained on the construction site. The early rains confirmed water containment. The site was covered in plastic to protect excavated footings for the remainder of winter break. With blue skies, the project is back in production. The CHS Administration Building was completely sheeted and covered in plastic prior to rainfall and work crews, including plumbing, electrical and HVAC, continued to work inside through the remainder of winter break. The roof plastic has now been removed and roofing has begun. Both projects are on track with minimal delay due to bad weather. The Measure U team will be meeting this week to finalize the plans for summer modernization projects and to prepare bid documents for Canalino and Main schools.

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery?
January marks the beginning of Sealwatch. This report covers Jan. 3 - 9, 2022.
High Adult Count
Natural History Notes
In Carpinteria, most harbor seal pups are born between February and April. Births are occasionally seen as early as December and as late as June. Pups weigh about 20 to 24 lbs. at birth. If born prematurely, harbor seals retain a whitish fluffy lanugo coat, which is usually shed in utero before birth.
A bicyclist rode at and past a Seal watcher, ignoring both the watcher and the regulatory signs, frightening seals into the ocean. There is speculation the premature birth of a pup hours later was caused by the incident. Sheriff’s deputies were called, and photos of the man were provided. Less severe disturbances were recorded from a train whistle, pier boat/crane loading and aircraft. If you walk the beach, please do not hesitate to let people know the seals are not threatened by Covid-19, but they are by human disturbance. For information on Sealwatch, call (805) 684-2247.
Weekly counts are not kept because during Covid-19 not all overlook volunteer shifts are covered, but one two-hour shift reported over 230 visitors.
The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to 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 remain outside the rope area at all times. Volunteers needed. Call (805) 684-2247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.
I waited until the sixth to take the Christmas decorations down – minimalist this year, a potted pine hung with birds, a few green boughs, red berries, candles. Not the onerous task many face, wrestling brittle, needle-shedding trees outside, boxing up decorations, heaving big sighs of relief to be done with it. Jan. 6, Epiphany, is the 12th day of Christmas, the day the Magi arrived bearing gifts for the baby Jesus. I have friends who celebrate Epiphany with gifts and feasting every year. Epiphany was the manifestation of Christ to the gentiles, the three wise men. In other words: a revelation. I thought of the irony of this listening to the one-year anniversary stories of the Jan. 6 assault on the capital. On the day the wise men delivered treasures to the Babe, vandals sacked the coffers of democracy. I wish I could see a real epiphany, an awakening, here, but the future is as confused and muddy as the past. An epiphany is supposed to be a good thing, a breakthrough in the way reality is perceived – not the dimness, confusion, dissent that we’re all experiencing day to day as our nation splits apart at the seams. I’ve read many journalistic pieces about how we all need to look for ways to part the curtains of deception (the Big Lie and all its corollaries) and find our way back to truth. How we should be the thoughtful citizens a democracy depends on, talk to those who disagree with us and listen to different news outlets, not just the ones that tout our points of view. The Omicron surge is an added blight to healing, in real and psychic ways. I know so many who have had breakthrough infections in spite of vaccinations. Soon we may be needing a fourth booster against the new variant. Omicron has made us, the careful ones anyway, turn inward again. We shut down connections and neighborliness, retreat to our homes and whatever streams on TV. The news is bad. Hospitals are spilling over. Animosity and anger rage. Upticks in both gun violence and traffic rage are linked to the pandemic. Deep winter inhabits our hearts and spirits.
“I thought of the irony of this listening to the one-year anniversary stories of the Jan. 6 assault on the capital. On the day the wise men delivered treasures to the Babe, vandals sacked the coffers of democracy.” I have to limit news watching to maintain a sense of equilibrium. I already miss the escape of Hallmark’s feel-good Christmas movies where kindness is front and center and people are nice to each other. Life is not all hot chocolate and cookies in the oven, but it sure feels good to inhabit that space for a time. A recent article in the LA Times told the story of tugboat operators who bring huge container ships into the harbor at Long Beach. I was struck by a quote from one of the captains: “Those of us who work out here see everyone’s lives writ large. Every day we get a firsthand view of the size and scale of the American economy and American consumerism. Not many appreciate this when they go to the market and buy individual items.” His words reverberate in my mind when I make a trip to Costco and see towering racks of home goods and food, cases of meats and cheeses. Or Albertsons with whole aisles devoted to cereal and snack foods. We are a nation of so much plenty. It’s hard to imagine the industry behind such bounty: the factories and manufacturing plants, fields and orchards, the trucks and trains and shipping containers. I guess this was my epiphany, a glimpse of the enormity of what we have that I had taken for granted. So my intention for this new year, as messed up and wounded as it is, is gratitude. I resolve to be grateful every day to live in a country that gives us so much. One good thing: vibrant green grass covering burn scars – a visual balance between gratitude and loss.

Alcazar hosts party for Grammy winner, introduces new live streaming service PHOTOS BY GLENN DUBOCK
On Dec. 20, the Alcazar Theatre held a birthday celebration for Alan Parsons, the Grammy award-winning audio engineer, songwriter, musician and record producer. The function included a performance by Parsons with his band on the Alcazar stage. Emceed by local broadcast journalist John Palmenteri, the event also featured out-takes from the new Beatles documentary, “Get Back,” which touches on Parsons’ work as an audio engineer with The Beatles at Apple Records and “NeverEnding Song,” Parsons recently released DVD featuring his band, The Alan Parson’s Project, filmed live in the Netherlands. The Alcazar also demonstrated its new live video streaming service that provides remote content to local and online attendees. The new offering was initially created as Alcazar Live 805 when the theater was
first impacted by the pandemic in 2020. “We have partnered with HypeCats to enhance the presentations as we also used in a recent NASCAR event, Days of Thunder, and featured Kyle Petty streamed in from Charlottesville, NC,” Michael Avery, Alcazar board president, said. Due to the current uptick in Covid-19 cases, the Alcazar Theatre Board of Directors has suspended all in-person events through the month of January 2022. “We will be working behind the scenes to continue to make upgrades to the theater to further enhance your in-person experience at the Alcazar and to develop the necessary infrastructure to deliver content to your home and business,” Avery said. “We will also use this time to take measures to increase our safety initiatives designed to safeguard your return to the theater so you can enjoy all the great events and shows that we have planned in 2022.”
At his birthday party held at the Alcazar Theatre, musician Alan Parsons took the stage to play crowd favorites for his guests.

The exhibit celebrates Rincon, the Pacific Coast and Southern California’s surf culture, and is held in collaboration with the Rincon Classic. Featured artists are from Carpinteria, Ventura, Santa Barbara and the Rincon area. “The Rincon Classic is one of the oldest and most revered events in California’s rich surfing history highlighting generations of the area’s best surfers at the fabled cobblestones of Rincon Point during optimal winter conditions,” Joyce Donaldson, outreach director, said. An exhibition centered on Rincon surf culture was held at the center in 2020. “The energetic crowd of Rincon artists, surfers and enthusiasts broke the arts center’s opening reception attendance records in the courtyard and gallery since the opening of the 865 building in 2019,” she added. The arts center will hold a public reception for “Queen of the Coast” on Jan. 22, between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.; live music from The Wrinkled Teenagers will be featured in the center’s Koch Courtyard. Learn more at carpinteriaartscenter.org. The gallery is open between noon and 4 p.m., Thursday through Sunday; entry is free. The exhibit will run through Feb. 20, 2022.
The “Queen of the Coast” exhibit opens Friday and features several pieces focused on Rincon’s beauty, including “Rincon” by Bonny Butler. Butler said she “put my passion for the sea” into the piece.

DUNCAN’S REEL DEAL M AT T D U N C A N As Omicron ﬂies around the world faster than Santa’s sleigh, many of us are once again getting reacquainted with our houses – stuck searching for entertainment amongst our most familiar four walls. Which isn’t a totally pleasant way to come back from the holidays. Morale is low, anxiety high. Enter Disney, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and magic. Imagine that your all-too-familiar house is not some inanimate structure, but alive – a living, breathing, thinking thing. And imagine that it can give each member of your family quirky but useful magical powers. That might help with the doldrums. This is “Encanto” (now streaming on Disney+). It’s the story of a family and a house – a story that begins with fear, anxiety and hardship. War forces Alma Madrigal (Maria Cecilia Botero) and her husband Pedro to ﬂee their home with their triplet babies. Along the way, Pedro is lost, but Alma is able to save her children with the help of a magic candle. The candle provides a miracle – it vanquishes all foes and provides a safe haven for Alma and her family. The centerpiece of this haven is “Casita,” a big, beautiful house nestled among protective mountains. (Nice candle!) What’s more, the Casita is like another member of the family – it is alive – and it gives each of Alma’s children a magical gift. Julieta (Angie Cepeda) can heal people with the food she cooks. Pepa (Carolina Gaitan) can control the weather with her emotions. Bruno (John Leguizamo) can see the future. And the gift keeps on giving. The triplets each get a gift, and so do their children. Luisa (Jessica Darrow), for example, is super strong, and Isabela (Diane Guerrero) can make beautiful ﬂowers appear at will. Everyone has their own special gift, their own contribution to the family. Except Julieta’s daughter, Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz). She alone among
“Encanto” is streaming on Disney+. the Madrigal children and grandchildren was not given a gift. There’s no obvious reason why. Mirabel is plenty nice, and she is loyal to the family. But not only does she not get cool magical powers, she is also pointed out, stared at, scrutinized and condescended to by her community. On top of this, Mirabel gets to be the bearer of bad news. She starts to see cracks in the Casita. No one else does, and they don’t appreciate Mirabel’s negativity. Nonetheless, Mirabel is concerned, so she investigates. Mirabel asks around – she interviews various members of her family and, along the way, discovers the struggles and burdens of those around her who she had thought were thriving in every way. All is not well with Casita. All is not well with the Madrigals. Eventually Mirabel’s investigation leads to her Uncle Bruno – the one who can see the future. Bruno is in hiding, and everyone ignores him, because they don’t like his uncomfortable prognostications. However, Mirabel convinces him to give her some sense of what’s going to happen. It doesn’t look pretty. But it gives Mirabel time to ﬁgure it out, understand it, maybe ﬁx it, hopefully manage it. During pandemic 3.0 (or is it 4.0? 5.0?), “Encanto” is just what the doctor ordered. If our own walls can’t talk, Casita is second best. The story is simple, but there is just enough allegorical nuance that its richness doesn’t lose pace with its beautiful animation and entrancing songs. And the songs – by none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda – are really where it’s at. My whole family, both kids and adults alike, have been singing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and humming “Surface Pressure” ever since watching the movie. They’re catchy, fun and upbeat. It’s also perhaps worth being reminded that gifts and magic and wonder come in many forms, that not everyone has to be a stereotypical hero, and that love is not always ﬂowers and laughter but can rather be labor and fortitude. “Encanto” isn’t heavy-handed, thankfully, but it does oﬀer these nice thematic nudges. Again, just what the doctor ordered. “Encanto” is rated PG for some thematic elements and mild peril. Matt Duncan, a former Coastal View News editor, has taken physical but not emotional leave from Carpinteria to be a philosophy professor at Rhode Island College. In his free time from philosophizing, Duncan enjoys chasing his kids around, watching movies and updating his movie review blog, duncansreeldeal.blogspot.com.

thy neighbor as thyself” are at the same time amusing and rueful. Change comes to the village with the arrival of the burly and boisterous Christy McMahon, who has signed on to administer the government electrification of the area, one of the last in the country to experience this unimaginable and not entirely welcome innovation. Christy lodges with the Crowe household and “lightens” the mood with his cheerful wit and kind mentoring of his dour young roommate. “This is Happiness” is a detailed portrait of a vanishing way of life, a tender coming of age story, and finally a love story of surprising poignancy involving Christy and a local widow whom he had spurned forty years before. Noe becomes the intermediary in their late-in-life courtship and through their story finds a way forward into his own. Christy’s bittersweet observation––“Life is a comedy, with some sad bits”––nicely sums up this memorable novel. —Gaby Edwards, volunteer, Friends of the Library

“This Is Happiness” Niall Williams
If your family name is Mulvaney or Leary, Clancy or Connor, or you have aunts or great aunts named Bridget or Maureen, you probably will feel right at home in this sweet love song of a novel set in 1950s County Clare, Ireland. In the first pages of Niall Williams’ “This Is Happiness,” the townspeople filing out of the village church on Wednesday of Easter Week realize that the rain has stopped in a place where rain was “a condition of living” – “where it came off the gray vastness of the Atlantic that threw itself against the land like a lover spurned and resolved not to be so again.“ The miraculous change in the weather foretells other changes unexpected in this timeless landscape. The story is told by an old man recalling a spring and summer 60 years earlier that he spent in the village living with his aged and eccentric grandparents, as a 17-year-old adrift and grieving the death of his mother. The shy and awkward Noe Crowe is increasingly aware of the shared comforts and small joys of village life in spite of the bleak poverty we now know was typical of rural Ireland well into the 20th century. The story is saved from sentimentality by the narrator’s gently comic tone throughout: for example, “Someone has said that religion lasted longer in Ireland because we were an imaginative people and so could most vividly picture the fires of hell. His descriptions of his grandparents’ “less than idyllic” marriage and of the “high bar” of “love

“Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done?” By Harold Schechter “Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done?” by Harold Schechter dives into the notorious Ed Gein and his infamous case. The graphic novel gives the reader a thorough look into his childhood and what led him to commit his horrific crimes. Schechter is an excellent true crime writer and his well-researched narrative pairs nicely with Eric Powell’s muted, gory illustrations. This book is not for the faint of heart as Powell leaves no room for imagination. Consumers of true crime are in for a disturbing treat. “Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done?” is available at the library with your library card. —Blanca Ramirez, librarian, Carpinteria Branch Library

Warriors girls soccer takes two tough losses at home BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING
In a week full of Covid-19 related sports cancellations, Carpinteria’s girls soccer team got back on the field for the first time since Dec. 12, with two home games against Nordhoff High School and Orcutt Academy. In the two games, the Warriors struggled to shake off the winter break rust, losing both by the same score: 0-3. The loss against Nordhoff was the team’s first Citrus Coast League game of the season, and the visiting Rangers jumped out of the gate early with a goal in the first nine minutes. Shortly after, a miscommunication on a clearance ended with another goal leaving the Warriors down 0-2 just 21 minutes into the match. Coach Freddy Martinez said the Warriors’ midfielders and forwards were able to create some opportunities in the first half, but were ultimately unable to find the back of the net. The second half was a close battle, he said, but a late Nordhoff counterattack led to a challenge in the goalie box that was called a penalty kick, and converted for a final score of 0-3. “Although the score line was not positive, I continue to be pleased with the huge strides the team is making to improve this program,” Martinez said. “The girls have really been playing with some passion and determination and today was no exception.” Martinez highlighted forward Ashley Verduzco and utility player Camryn Siegel, who he said showed a lot of heart and made their physical presence known in the game. On Monday, the Warriors reloaded for a matchup against visiting Orcutt Academy. For 90% of the match Carpinteria fought hard, but a three-goal flurry in the last nine minutes of the first half left the War-
riors fighting a 0-3 deficit for the rest of the game. “With the exception of those nine minutes tonight I was really pleased with the game the way the girls played overall,” Martinez said. “Although we still struggled to get the victory, this group of players are really buying into the demands and expectations I have been preaching since we started in November.” Martinez said that senior Karen Go-
mez showed great leadership and kept the team’s spirits up the whole match. “There is no better example of this enthusiasm to get this team to the next level than her, she had a great game tonight and kept the team’s spirits up all game.” The Warriors are scheduled to play a couple games this week, as long as all teams clear Covid-19 protocols. Carpinteria hosts Beacon Hill on Thursday, Jan. 13 and hits the road to face Malibu on Friday, Jan. 14.

SHORT STOPS BY RYAN P. CRUZ
Carpinteria athletics adapt to Covid-19 complications
High school athletics continues to adjust to the most recent wave of Covid-19 cancellations in Carpinteria. Almost all winter sports were affected by Omicron complications this week, and the Warriors’ soccer programs were the only teams to see any in-game action. “The Warriors have been here before and continue to handle the moment-to-moment uncertainty with skill,” said Athletic Director Pat Cooney. “Players and coaches are adept at adjusting to ever changing mandates, protocols and schedules.” “To be determined” seems to be the theme of day-to-day athletics activities, as Cooney points out, and twice-weekly Covid-testing is just one of the protocols in place to protect the players. Indoor sports prepare to limit the spectators – four per player – as both boys and girls basketball had games canceled this week. Girls water polo has also been affected, and the team is hoping to get back in the pool with two Citrus Coast League matches, followed by a tournament in Oxnard. Cooney also wanted to thank the staff, particularly athletic trainer Ruben Barrera, who has led the charge in keeping the Warriors athletes safe and healthy. Barrera heads the school’s Covid testing program for indoor sports.

Boys soccer ends in a 1-1 draw at Nordhoff
The Warriors’ boys soccer team was back on the pitch for a league match on the road under the Friday night lights in Ojai. Sophomore Angel Zapata stepped up in just his second start at the varsity level, scoring off an assist from senior Angel Velazquez in the 30th minute. The “angelic” connection would be the only score of the day for the Warriors, who ended with a 1-1 draw. “Overall we played a game in which every player saw time on the field and contributed quality play,” said coach Leo Quintero, adding that Gerardo Lopez came in especially clutch, replacing the injured starter Alex Silva at goalkeeper. Lopez made three key saves preserving the tie – which may be an important factor in playoff rankings. “We tell our boys that every league game should be viewed and played as a playoff game, considering the quality of the teams we have in the Citrus Coast,” Quintero said.
