However, city staff modified their proposal after receiving input from the Coastal Commission and the California Department of Housing and Community Development, according to Principal Planner Nick Bobroff, now allowing ADUs/JADUs throughout the city. RPM Design Group has also drafted up base prototypes, A and B, for residents looking to save money on ADU/JADU designs, with the prototypes currently under staff review. Per the city program, JADUs and ADUs are prohibited from short-term rental use; they must have leases of no

less than 31 days. A representative from the Carpinteria Valley Water District spoke during public comment, expressing concern that the language in the program could prohibit the district from properly billing tenants. In response, city legal counsel told the

council the program’s language “matches the language that exists in state law.” The program will come before the Coastal Commission at a future date, but Bright said based on feedback she has already been given, she believes the program will be well received.

A Carpinteria program regulating Accessory Dwelling Units and Junior Accessory Dwelling Units is now in the hands of the California Coastal Commission, after the Carpinteria City Council unanimously voted Monday night to approve it. Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs, and Junior Accessory Dwelling Units, or JADUs, are additional residential units on a property. The sizes of both vary, but JADUs are smaller – typically less than 500 square feet – and are attached portions sectioned off from a main residence, while ADUs are larger, and can be attached or detached. Per state criteria, ADUs and JADUs are not required to have designated parking spots if they are: Located within half a mile of a bus route or bus stop, one block from a designated rideshare, or in a historic district. But allowing ADUs and JADUs to forego parking requirements comes with Carpinteria-specific issues, Principal Planner Rita Bright told the city on Monday. “Pretty much all of the city meets one of those criteria,” Bright said. “Parking requirements are very rare, and would only apply in certain situations.” As such, Carpinteria’s program requires ADUs and JADUs erected in the beach neighborhood – where parking is often tight – go through the local development review process. This area, designated as the Beach Neighborhood Overlay District, is located below the railroad tracks, between Ash and Linden avenues. ADUs and JADUs built outside of this district will typically face a more streamlined process for approval, Bright said. A previous version of this program, presented to the council last year, split the beach neighborhood into two zones, prohibiting ADUs/JADUs in the areas

O’Connor is newest ARB appointment

tremendous selection!

Patrick O’Connor, Carpinteria City Council District Five candidate, is the newest member of the Carpinteria Architectural Review Board. O’Connor is replacing Jason Rodriguez, who left the position back in July. Three people applied – O’Connor, Ingrid Bostrom and John Kucharski – but the council, in a 3-2 vote at Monday night’s meeting, approved O’Connor for the seat. Councilmember Roy Lee first showed favor for Bostrom, citing the need for a more diverse ARB and praising her work as a photographer, but Mayor Wade Nomura motioned for O’Connor due to his engineering and civil backgrounds. “One shows the most promise,” Nomura said. “All were highly qualified. But it’s essential a member of the Architectural Review Board has a good (knowledge) of history.”

Avofest closures

Due to the Carpinteria Avocado Festival – scheduled to run from Sept. 30–Oct. 2 – several streets around Carpinteria will be closed, including Linden Avenue from Carpinteria Avenue, down to Sixth Street. Detour signs will be placed. Closures will begin Thursday morning, with the streets scheduled to reopen late Sunday night. Avofest will run from 2 p.m. Friday to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Special city meeting: Oct. 17

A special city meeting will be held on Oct. 17, 5:30 p.m. for the city council to address the Housing Element plan. “The city has completed a draft of its Housing Element, a component of the General Plan, and has policies about the housing cycle,” City Manager Dave Durflinger said.

OK given for downtown Halloween activities

Downtown Halloween activities, including the beloved downtown trick or treating tradition, will resume this year, Durflinger confirmed. The city’s traditional Halloween activities had paused due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

City receives 400 responses to senior survey

The city received between 300 to 400 responses to the senior survey released in August, Assistant City Manager Michael Ramirez told the council Monday. The survey, which gathered input on Carpinterians’ wishes for senior programming and a potential senior center, closed Sept. 18. “(These numbers) are pretty much unheard of,” Ramirez said. “We have momentum going, and we’re going to keep going.”

Ad hoc harbor seal committee extended

The council approved an extension of Ad Hoc Harbor Seal Committee operations until June 23, 2023, or until the committee comes back to the council with a report. Parks and Recreation Facilities Director Matt Roberts said the committee plans to come back to the council in November.

Obituary

Bradley “Brad” Dennis Smith 4/7/1941 – 9/15/2022 Pictured September 1986

Beloved husband, dad, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, Bradley Dennis Smith, 81, of Carpinteria, California started his journey to a better place on Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2022. Brad went gently into heaven after a brave and stoic fight against cancer at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital with family present. Family and friends prayed God would have given him more time with us. An unsung hero, Brad could always see if things were out of place, and he would fix them, he could fix anything. We think perhaps he was called away to fix the Pearly Gates. Born April 7, 1941, in Los Angeles, California to parents Oliver and Inez Smith, Brad grew up in the Los Feliz neighborhood. He married his childhood sweetheart, Barbara Adaire Hansen on September 6, 1963. They grew up attending St. Athanasius Church in Echo Park and attended the same high school. Brad was active in DeMolay and Barbara was active in Job’s Daughters. Brad graduated from John Marshall High School in 1959 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy. From 1960-1962 Brad served his country aboard the USS Ticonderoga, CVA-14, where he spent his service as a pipefitter on the lagging crew. He loved watching the planes land on the aircraft carrier and went on to earn his private pilot’s license. He enjoyed flying for a few years while his daughters were young. From 1964-2011 Brad was an active member of Plumbers & Fitters Union Local 761 in Burbank, California. He worked with Murray Company 34 1/2 of those years. His last project before retirement was overseeing new construction at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. In 2018, Brad and his wife received the honor of being recognized as Carpinteria Volunteers of the Year. Brad’s love of his community led him to volunteer with the Friends of the Carpinteria Library and Carpinteria Beautiful for 13 years. He

really enjoyed helping Carpinteria stay beautiful by volunteering for Adopt-aSpot, and he always said, “More people should pick up trash.” Brad’s first car was a 1932 Ford Coupe. He restored it when he was 17 and drove it now and then over the last 64 years; it remains in pristine condition and his daughters will keep it in the family to drive now and again. Throughout his life Brad stayed active with many hobbies. He loved reading and working on cars, especially antique cars. Amongst his favorite pastimes, Brad was his family’s handyman, and the Friends of the Carpinteria Library adopted him as their handyman, too. His daughters called him MacGyver, so if you ever hear about something that needs fixing in the world, you might imagine Brad offering to help. Brad was a member of various antique car clubs for over 40 years, including the Santa Barbara Woodie Club. If you ever see a procession of antique Woodie Station Wagons in California, you will most likely be seeing a car that Brad helped fix or a driver he knew. Brad’s daughters say, “The world is a dimmer place without our dad.” Brad was a respected and honorable friend and family man. With his handshake as good as his signature, his great smile, gentle demeanor and witty sense of humor brought cheer to everyone around him. He is survived by his wife, Barbara A; two daughters, Brenda Montaine and spouse Rick, and Bonnie Brower and spouse Rob; three grandchildren, Becky Samario and her spouse Guy, Abbey McKay and her spouse Jackson, and Trysten Hicks and her spouse Dan; two great-grandchildren, Luna Samario and Easton Hicks, and two more on the way; two siblings, brother Brian A. Smith and spouse Danielle, and sister Barbara L. Smith; and numerous extended family and friends. In Brad’s memory and honor, make the world a brighter place, offer help and kindness, learn to fix some things, appreciate an old car, and, instead of walking by a piece of trash, no matter how small, pick it up. If you would like to donate in Brad’s memory, the family asks that you please make it out to either to the Friends of the Carpinteria Library, Carpinteria Beautiful or the Carpinteria Valley Historical Society. A Celebration of Life will be on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2022, at 11 a.m. at Boyko & Reardon Chapel (15 Teloma Dr., Ventura, CA 93003).

VIEWPOINT Welcome back, Avofest! BY MAYOR WADE NOMURA

Dear Carpinterians, Last week, Carpinteria Beach wasn’t just the World’s Safest Beach, it became the World’s Cleanest Beach! Over 100 Carpinterians came out to scour our shoreline and creeks as their part of Coastal Cleanup Day. The massive effort removed hundreds of pounds of garbage from our beaches and watersheds. Coastal Cleanup Day kicked off Creek Week, and a robust slate of events aimed at building awareness and stewardship of nature in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria. In Carpinteria, volunteers pitched in to clear weeds, restore habitat along Carpinteria and Santa Monica creeks and take walking tours of the beautiful Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve. This weekend, we have Avofest to look forward to. The big celebration of everyone’s favorite green fruit makes its return following the Covid-19 hiatus, and there is a lot of excitement about it. On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1 and 2, we expect visitors from up and down the state and beyond to pour into Carpinteria to enjoy the excellent lineup of live music, great food and shopping. Our downtown shops and restaurants will see an important infusion of visitor dollars to help them in the slower fall season. Friday night, Sept. 30, will be a “keep it local,” event with an evening of music and food

“Friday night, Sept. 30, will be a ‘keep it local,’ event with an evening of music and food designed to be enjoyed by Carpinterians.” designed to be enjoyed by Carpinterians. Planning for the Carpinteria Avocado Festival and Creek Week really makes me appreciate life in Carpinteria. The pandemic canceled so many of our favorite community events and their return has me feeling more excited than ever. It’s true that sometimes we take things for granted and don’t realize how great they are until they’re gone. Welcome back, Avofest! Stay Well, Stay Safe, and Stay Cool! Wade Nomura has been on the Carpinteria City Council since 2012, and currently serves as the city’s Mayor. He can be reached at WadeNomura@carpinteriaca.gov.

Renting public land equals public benefits

In his letter regarding Measure T (CVN Vol. 29, No. 1) George Lehtinen hit the proverbial nail on the head. Leasing public land for private enterprise to provide public use facilities is a decades-old policy that provides public benefits the government does not or cannot provide and generates revenue for local public improvements. It does not restrict public use, contrary to misinformation presented by supporters of Measure T. A second, more insidious nail to be hammered on, is the primary scare tactic of misinformation in the “Save Our Open Space” campaign put forward by supporters of T. It is a fact that voting for T will not “save” one square inch of “open space” as a vast majority of California residents know the term. In fact, existing Lot #4 between Amtrak RR and The Spot will remain leased to an adjacent property owner, at what is, if looked at with a legal fiduciary lens, likely an illegal rental rate, far below market value; in fact, the present, long time lessee has diligently resisted efforts by residents and the city for a needed public walking trail addition through this city owned open space/ property. This is an affront to the honest, tax paying residents of Carpinteria. This open space will not be “saved” for the benefit of residents and visitors. Neither will Parking Lot #3, where EV owners leave cars parked to charge up and Amtrak and other users occupy the so-called open space not currently designated as such. Supporters of T would have us believe there are some precious views and undisturbed natural character to this paved public lot surrounded by industrial, commercial uses, and RR. Measure T does not “Save Our Open Space”; this is mendacity at its worst. Get the facts on Measure T, vote NO.

Measure T lets you decide

To the voters of Carpinteria: For those of us who believe that building an oversized hotel on public land will not improve, but instead detract from Carpinteria’s small town charm, Measure T is the way to make our voices heard. Voting “YES” on Measure T is definitely a “NO” to the construction of the Surfliner Inn. Measure T is presented in terms of preserving open space because “Open Space/Recreational” is the legal designation that prevents city property from being developed for commercial purposes. The Carpinteria City Council’s refusal to hold an advisory vote specifically on the Surfliner Inn, as proposed by Vice Mayor Clark, is the primary reason for Measure T. It lets the voters decide whether there will be any commercial development on the city’s parking lot 3. The Measure changes the zoning only on this one parcel, while confirming the present zoning of the lot next to the Spot as Open Space/ Recreational. The specifications of the Open Space/Recreational designation were modified to accommodate the existing parking on Lot #3. They will not impact additional parking on other city owned properties. The measure will not allow residential development on property that has not been previously designated for that purpose. Neither Parking Lot #3, nor the space next to the Spot, nor the Garden Park have been designated for residential development. The measure does not limit the council’s authority in any matters other than the zoning of these two parcels. Does Measure T challenge the position of four sitting Council members on this issue? Yes, because these council members have not been receptive to the concerns of a

“Downtown Open Space” is oxymoron

Measure T’s proponents advocate “Save our Downtown Open Space.” Open space is important, and Carpinteria has done a decent job of preserving it, but “Downtown Open Space” is a bit of an oxymoron, isn’t it? Measure T is Trouble, as shown by the confusion it has generated. One discussion on Nextdoor has generated 335 comments debating what it does. In fact, “Yes on T” invited us all to a meeting recently to “Clear up Confusion” over the measure. A ballot measure that confuses voters is problematic. It changes the zoning of a downtown parking lot from commercial to open space without changing its function. It would amend our zoning laws in ways that could have unintended consequences, have not been vetted by the Coastal Commission, and it does not have the support of our city attorney or the City Council. Then, to make any corrections, another election would be required. Not exactly an optimal town planning process. But the question that Measure T avoids (and in fact prevents) asking is “Should there be a small hotel downtown by the train station?” This would normally be answered in public hearings, with testimony by professional staff, and citizens, and voted on by our elected officials. I say let’s have that debate, by voting down a troubled initiative.

Concerns with homeless population

There is a growing homeless population in Carpinteria, and I am worried about the safety of our children. For over two weeks, a homeless man has been sleeping in the dugout at the farm baseball field at El Carro park. His possessions are stashed in the dugout all day, cans of beer and packs of cigarettes lay on top of his blankets and sleeping mat. At night he sets up his bed and takes it down in the am. Concerned neighbors have called the sheriff’s department. Public works and code compliance have been notified. Yet, every day I walk by, and he and his gear remain. On a bike ride last month, my family rode on the new bike path under the freeway along the Carpinteria Creek. A homeless man with his bike trailer and gear were camped on the “sensitive habitat.” A makeshift shelter was behind the bushes and a man and woman were smoking drugs. Upon arriving home, we

called the sheriff. Later that day my husband rode by again and the encampment was still there, along with its inhabitants. Two weeks ago, my family took a walk on Linden and there was a man and woman “cuddling” under a blanket in the doorway at 700 Linden Ave. Piles of their things laid all around them and they camped there for several days. Having homeless in our community is a safety concern and a health hazard. Homeless people loiter on our public benches, sleep in our parks and open spaces, and campout at our library. I fear for the safety of our children as they ride/ walk to school, play sports on our fields or play on the playgrounds in town. What will it take for our town to discourage the homeless from making Carpinteria their home?

No on Biden

This is America. I didn’t vote for Joe Biden, but he is my president and I wanted him to do well. I genuinely hope that someone can convince me otherwise, but I have come to the conclusion that Biden is an absolute disaster as our president. His policies have done considerable harm to our country. He recently bragged about bringing down oil prices, failing to note that he’s doing this by dangerously draining the nation’s strategic oil reserve. He won’t recognize that we were energy independent when he took office and that he is now trying to get oil from countries that are not particularly friendly to us. (Joe, we have what we need right here.) He doesn’t appear to realize that we are going to need fossil fuels to produce items necessary for the green energy he envisions. He continually finds people to blame for problems he creates. For instance, we have “Putin’s inflation.” He has caused totally unnecessary misery and human disasters in Afghanistan and on our own southern border. He seems absolutely oblivious to our border situation. He and his border czar, VP Harris, have done nothing to solve our internal border crisis and the suffering it is causing. His Sept. 1 “Soul of the Nation” speech, which insulted many Americans, was simply awful. I could go on, but letter length is understandably limited. My feeling: Joe Biden is a terrible President. You have every right to disagree with me. If you do, I hope you will make your views known. With upcoming elections, I think it is important that we voice our honest opinions and be respectful of those with whom we disagree. I’m happy this is possible in the good ‘ole USA.

understand so much, there are situations where numbers are accidentally, or even intentionally, used in ways that make it harder for us to comprehend what they mean. When we allow ourselves to take such information at face value and do not review it critically, we succumb to what has been called “innumeracy”. As we move closer to the November election, we enter high season for abuse of numbers in attempts to influence our vote. However, number abuse is not isolated to election season and occurs throughout the year. Before we allow ourselves to be convinced of something by any statistic or graph, we need to consider the information critically and see if it is really saying what it initially appears to say. This is especially important for understanding and making decisions on local issues. One important factor in local decisions that is heavy in numbers is the economic aspect: number of jobs, wages, housing costs, tax revenue, etc. All of these are areas ripe for misunderstanding. For example, consider the two graphs shown. The one with the “zoomed in” vertical axis is very similar to the graph shown on page one of the “2021 Carpinteria Valley Economic Profile”. While it clearly shows the year-to-year fluctuations in employment, it implies that these fluctuations are huge. The other graph where the vertical axis starts at zero shows the exact same data, but it shows the data in context. From this graph, it is clear that the drop in employment at the start of the pandemic in 2020 was serious, but it was a small fraction of the total employment in the Carpinteria Valley. Both graphs show the same numbers, and the numbers don’t lie. But what they tell you can differ based on how they are presented. Here is a different example: There was a week last month when Covid-19 deaths in Santa Barbara County skyrocketed by 300% over the previous week. That

sounds really scary. In reality, there were four deaths that week, and there had been one the previous week (and there was one death the following week). Taken in context, the number of deaths, while a tragedy, was not a sign of impending lockdown. Now let’s say the city gets a development application to retrofit a building in an industrial area for manufacturing the fictional “wifflewomps.” However, it turns out that making wifflewomps results in really nasty smoke that has dioxin and arsenic in it, and the proposal is to vent the smoke into the air. After review, the applicant says they will do what’s best for the community and buy expensive equipment that will reduce the dioxin by 94% and the arsenic by 98%. That sounds pretty good, right? Should we as neighbors of this building tell the city we support the plan? Do we have enough information? This is an excellent (made-up) example where innumeracy could actually kill people. If we don’t know how much of the toxic chemicals were originally planned to be released, we have no idea how much will be released after they are reduced by some percentage. What matters is the absolute amount actually released, not how much was originally proposed or what percentage that was reduced. For these examples and most situations, we learned all the required math in grade school. Fighting innumeracy is mostly simply applying what we already know, and not allowing ourselves to be fooled. We can even figure out how to cut that one-third cup of milk in half if we concentrate. 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.

2022 Avocado Report:

Sky-high early season pricing leads to quick picking, good returns BY PETER DUGRE

TWO TRUMPETS COMMUNICATIONS

In the international avocado industry, Mexico possesses the gravitational pull of the sun. All other avocado-producing nations bend to its mass. Take February 2022, a time when growers in San Diego County were about to start picking for the season, and Mexico was coming up short with its lagging shipments into the United States avocado market. Under-supply sent prices to never-before-seen heights for California fruit – over $2 per pound in February – and the season was jump-started, first in San Diego County and then northward to Santa Barbara County. As a result, California sprinted through its 2022 season, picking earlier and smaller than average years, in order to maximize profits. The price continued to rise through June, and then it came back to Earth. “The season was like summer love. It was short and sweet and didn’t last nearly long enough,” said Rick Shade of Shade Farm Management, which manages avocado groves in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. At this point, nearly all of the 2022 California avocados have been picked and packed, and the avocados hanging from trees are part of next year’s crop. Chances are high that avocados consumed in Carpinteria this weekend at the California Avocado Festival were not harvested in California. There just aren’t that many homegrown avocados left. Since Carpinteria has a more temperate climate, historically avocado growers have enjoyed the advantage of leaving the fruit on the tree for longer and to harvest when prices are favorable in the late season. This year, however, later harvest was a disadvantage. “Folks who paid attention to the market took advantage of high early-season prices. Those who relied on historical averages lost their shorts,” Shade said. Global supply-chain issues, a light Mexican crop and flare ups of cartel violence led to strong grower prices on California avocados early in the year. Traditionally, peak season for the California harvest hits somewhere around the months of May through August. This year, harvest shifted back a whole month

At this point, nearly all of the 2022 California avocados have been picked and packed, and the avocados trees are part of next year’s crop. in response to pricing, and packinghouses started slowing down even before the Labor Day Weekend, which avocado distributors usually count on as a big barbecue and guacamole holiday. Peru has been a growing player in the U.S. (and global) avocado market, and the Peruvian avocado season overlaps with California’s typical summer schedule. This year, supply from Peru came on as scheduled in early summer and was one factor that applied downward pressure on pricing. Mexico also ramped up production in the summer with its flor loca crop, a second harvest that allows Mexico to produce avocados year-round. From now until the early part of next year, Mexican avocados will sustain the U.S. market until other suppliers like California and Peru can start harvesting again. Of note for the 2022 season: The U.S. now imports Mexican avocados grown in the state of Jalisco. In prior years, due to trade agreements and strict phytosanitary protocols on produce imports, only fruit from the neighboring state of Michoacan was green-lighted for import into the US market. That changed this July. California

growers are watching in earnest to see how the newly permitted Mexican growing region impacts overall inventory and pricing for years to come. Peter Dugré and Lea Boyd are co-owners of Two Trumpets Communications, which edits the California Avocado Society’s weekly industry newsletter and quarterly magazine.

By the Numbers: VOLUME:

California has harvested about 250 million pounds of Hass avocados this year and a grand total of 270 million pounds for all varieties. Lamb Hass (10 million pounds) and GEM (4 million pounds) varieties are next in volume for California growers. GEM, a relatively new variety, has seen its production rise steadily each year as more growers plant GEM trees, hoping they will compete with Hass for market share. So far in 2022, Mexico has exported 1.4 billion pounds of Hass avocados to the US. The total volume of Hass avocados consumed in the U.S. so far this year is 1.9 billion pounds, which is behind our 2021 pace of 2.2 billion pounds through September. Mexico has picked up its harvest pace as of late, and in reaction U.S. avocado inventories have grown and prices have plummeted.

PRICING: In mid-February 2021, California avocado growers were getting about $1.15 per pound for conventionally grown fruit. A year later, the grower was able to command $2.25 for the same pound of fruit, a near 100 percent increase. By mid-June of 2022, growers were getting paid an all-time high of $2.66 per pound. Organic California avocados eclipsed $3 per pound, and growers couldn’t get their avocados to market quickly enough. The pull of gravity (Mexico’s gravity) brought prices down fast starting in July 2022. As of late August, the price paid to growers for a pound of conventionally grown California avocados had fallen to $1.20 per pound and organics were down to $1.50 per pound. California growers who harvested in the later season were getting half the price of their peers who harvested early.

Ask the Candidates Al Clark

Clark, a 35-year Carpinteria resident and current Vice Mayor on the Carpinteria City Council, has served on the council since 2006. Sometimes a vocal dissenter from majority council decisions, Clark has largely been the sole councilmember against renting out the public land – Lot #3 – to the Surfliner Inn’s private developers. He was the only councilmember not to sign an August council letter opposing the controversial Measure T Initiative.

Introduce yourself and tell the community why you are running for Carpinteria City Council. Speak to any experience you bring to the table.

Carpinteria City Council –– District 5 –– In this year’s Carpinteria City Council election three seats are up for grabs, in the newly created districts one, three and five. This week, we meet the candidates for district five: Gregg A. Carty, Al Clark and Patrick O’Connor. Carty and Clark are longtime councilmembers, having served on the Carpinteria City Council since 2006, while O’Connor is a relative newcomer to the city’s political scene. The election will be held on Nov. 8, 2022; terms will begin December 2022. Seats for the other two districts, districts two and four, will be voted on in November 2024. Miss last week’s questions for districts one and three candidates, Mónica Solórzano and Roy Lee? Visit coastalview.com/news/ask_the_candidates/. For questions or comments about the election or CVN, email news@coastalview.com.

I have lived in Carpinteria for 35 years. I am married to Kathleen Lord who has started volunteer efforts in Carpinteria, including Sealwatch, Bellas Artes and the Peace Corner. Our children are Charis Haines, Ben Haines and Spencer Clark. Ben is an artist, and his wife Carolyn is a teacher at Canalino. They have two children: Adam and Jeremy. Jeremy is on the water polo team at Carpinteria High School. Charis lives in New York and was the principal dancer in a major dance company. Spencer is a musician in Europe. I have served on the council for 16 years. I was appointed to the City Finance Committee, where I spearheaded and co-authored Measure X. This measure provides $3 to $4 million each year – money that has helped make the dreams of our own library, skatepark and street paving come true. Running for election in the Fifth District, I find that the small beach town we all love and that you have helped me to protect is at another high-stakes crossroads. Will Carpinteria remain “the last great beach town in Southern California” or will that soon be lost? Around town, many people I talk to are deeply concerned that our City Council is tilting backwards, moving us towards big business’ development interests and away from the interests of our residents. It’s time to reset our course. If you share my vision for our small town, please help me get re-elected to City Council. I will continue my work to protect us from inappropriate development, address the housing crisis, plan for the Chevron property and address sea level rise. I stand strong for women’s rights, racial equity and against threats to our very democracy. Please help me save our city and keep Carpinteria, Carpinteria by giving me your vote.

The city has seen a number of hot-button issues in its community forums recently, related to crime and community safety, employment, and residential and commercial development, such as the Surfliner Inn project. What do you see as Carpinteria’s most pressing or important issue, and why? Carpinteria’s single most pressing, central, and important issue is how do we keep Carpinteria, Carpinteria. There is constant pressure to grow and change. Most agree that some change is good. I maintain that we will prosper if we focus on what is important. I believe we can remain the last great beach town if, in all of our decisions, we equally balance the protection of our fragile environment with preservation of our small local businesses and with serving the needs of the people of Carpinteria who care so much about our town and about each other. Overdevelopment threatens not only our quality of life, but our natural treasures, our open space, and our appeal as a special tourist destination. Repurposing and reusing existing buildings should be prioritized. I have a constant and proven vision on how to keep Carpinteria, Carpinteria. As a councilmember I do the research and ask the questions that will lead me to the results. I look for problems that Carpinteria faces and try to address them in advance. Example: I helped create the formula business ordinance to protect our downtown business community from out-of-town chain stores; I initiated an ordinance to control the spread of short-term rentals that decimate our housing stock; I initiated another ordinance reducing local use of plastic bags and Styrofoam to protect our environment; I initiated Measure X and made the financial decision to bring a sales tax increase to a public vote to bolster our budget and fund our local library, etc. As a result of my leadership, all of these measures drew support from my colleagues on the council. I am the one with the vision that Carpinteria needs to continue to grow and prosper and yet stay the same place we love.

Reflect on a recent city council decision. Would you have made a different decision? Why or why not?

Ask the Candidates Coming next week, in CVN Vol. 29, No. 3.

I disagree with a decision made at a council meeting in late February 2021. The council had by then received over 1,000 written or oral comments from the public about the Surfliner Hotel, many requesting that the public be allowed to vote on the project. An advisory vote made sense to me, and I knew that Councilmember Carty had repeatedly said that he wanted more public input before making a decision. I therefore asked that he join me in requesting this item be put on the agenda for full council action. He did so. When the item came up at the next public meeting, two weeks later, I made the motion to proceed with a non-binding, up-or-down advisory vote that would allow the public to voice their opinion. No members of the council, however, agreed to second this motion. They cited time and expense. It would seem that the majority of the council failed to realize the depth of the public’s concern. The result is the current voter initiative to change the zoning in order to obviate commercial development, including the Surfliner hotel. The advisory vote would have cost the city much less than the initiative process and taken the same amount of time. More importantly, it would have avoided putting the community through all the current confusion and given the council the public’s straightforward, unequivocal opinion on the proposed hotel.

Introduce yourself and tell the community why you are running for Carpinteria City Council. Speak to any experience you bring to the table.

Carpinteria has been my home for over 60 years. I was raised and instilled with gratitude and dedication to the Carpinteria community by my late parents, Daphne and Bill “Doc” Carty. I watched as they helped others less fortunate in the community through formal volunteering and anonymous acts of kindness. Based on their lessons, I, too, knew the importance of community involvement and have been volunteering and formally part of various local government committees for the past 30+ years. I have been on the Carpinteria City Council since 2006, was selected as mayor during my first term, and served as mayor for an additional term. I worked tirelessly with my fellow council members, city staff and other government agencies as we navigated the fire, flood and pandemic. Through these extreme situations, I’ve seen what I’ve always known – Carpinteria coming together and supporting those who have been negatively impacted by these events. My goal is to serve the entire community, not focused on a singular issue, but look at the plethora of goals we seek to achieve collectively as a city. I lead and serve based on fairness, equality and vision, engaging with all walks of life and ensuring all voices are heard. As a member of various boards and committees, I’ve been educated and worked with experts in finance, business, housing and the environment. One of my proudest achievements while serving on the council was working with The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County to help orchestrate the acquisition of the Rincon Bluffs Preserve. Today, Carpinteria is a community that is and not one that was. I use my historical knowledge and experience of the past to inform and connect our vision of the present while preparing the community for the future.

My name is Patrick O’Connor. I am running for Carpinteria City Council. I work in the aerospace industry with a background in both civil and mechanical engineering. My wife, Kathleen, and I have lived in Carpinteria for nearly nine years. Three years ago, we had the privilege of becoming the owners of one of the older homes in the downtown area of District 5. My interest in serving is motivated by the history of our property, its families and those of our neighbors and community. In my short time as a resident and homeowner in Carpinteria, and while petitioning in our district neighborhoods to be on the ballot, I’ve heard a unanimous frustration with the city’s residential, commercial and public property development processes. Small business owners and resident property owners use the term “afraid” to describe their relationship with the city staff. Responsible citizens are literally afraid of adverse consequences while engaging in code and zoning matters. In parallel, I’ve heard council members describe the relationship by saying, “We operate separately.” The council delegates far too much authority to the staff, who subjectively interpret and enforce regulations without a sense of urgency for residents’, property owners’ or small business owners’ interests. I will bring engineering discipline to hold the council and staff accountable for customer service with a priority on transparent and timely solutions that benefit local business owners, citizens and resident property owners. I will bring complex problem-solving experience to the council to make the city’s decision-making processes fair. Carpinterians deserve fair decisions, without fear or favor.

The city has seen a number of hot-button issues in its community forums recently, related to crime and community safety, employment, and residential and commercial development, such as the Surfliner Inn project. What do you see as Carpinteria’s most pressing or important issue, and why? There are several important issues, but there is no single issue that takes precedence over another. We are fortunate to have financial stability based on decisions made by past and current councilmembers. It makes me proud to know Carpinteria is one of the most efficiently and effectively run cities in the state of California. As a member of the Budget Finance Committee, ensuring Carpinteria remains and continues to be financially sound is important to me. We’ve weathered floods, fires, and the pandemic, so continuing to restore our reserves and remaining fiscally responsible positions us to handle the unexpected. Our financial integrity is made possible by our local business community which has done its best to make it past the hurdles thrown over the past few years. I want to continue to support our local Carpinteria business owners and watch them prosper for years to come. It is encouraging to see the younger generation of Carpinteria business owners thrive, and it’s more important than ever to continue the momentum. In addition to the downtown, I’ve made a motion and will continue to pursue a city-wide review of public health and safety, as well as see through the completion of a dedicated Senior Center. Pedestrians, students and bicyclists deserve safe passage throughout the city, so I am all for implementing proactive measures to protect our citizens from vehicles and crime. Sidewalk improvements and cleaning up our downtown is just a small part we can do as a city to support business owners. As a member of the Senior Services Planning Committee, along with councilmember Roy Lee, we are committed to delivering a Senior Center deserved of Carpinterians.

Reflect on a recent city council decision. Would you have made a different decision? Why or why not? I personally stand by the decisions I’ve made while serving on the Carpinteria City Council. I commit time to study every issue, reviewing all the facts, and listening to experts and public comments. While not every decision is easy, the use of compromise is necessary for the greater good of our community. State decisions require the city to adhere to requirements that are not always designed for a city the size of Carpinteria. As a city, we work so hard to comply with state mandates, yet it is discouraging to see changes forced upon us that we as a community cannot always influence. Nevertheless, it’s important to work as a community in collaboration with other agencies and be proactive on pressing issues like affordable housing and environmental initiatives. I am happy with the decisions made regarding the dog park, as well as the protections from formula businesses in the downtown. While the dog park does a satisfactory job of fitting the needs of our pet owners, I would like to do more to establish a formal dog park. Protecting our locally owned “mom & pop” stores is also vital to our downtown and I believe the decisions we’ve made on formula businesses shield us from the challenges of big developers. Balancing sustainable tourism while ensuring the needs of our community are heard is vital to keeping Carpinteria the place we all love to call home. With every decision, I understand what we have as a community and how precious Carpinteria is, so your voice will always be heard!

The city has seen a number of hot-button issues in its community forums recently, related to crime and community safety, employment, and residential and commercial development, such as the Surfliner Inn project. What do you see as Carpinteria’s most pressing or important issue, and why? All of these issues can be addressed with thoughtful development of residential, commercial and public properties while preserving the fabric of Carpinteria. District 5 is comprised of a patchwork of non-conforming zoning and building codes that are inconsistently interpreted and enforced, particularly in the downtown and immediately adjacent neighborhoods. The proliferation of short-term rentals has reduced available housing and disproportionately burdened the downtown neighborhoods with overcrowding. The Carpinteria City Council has not addressed overcrowding, but rather reinforced it by allowing staff designations of legal nonconforming zoning density and building codes that are deteriorating the fabric and quality of life in Carpinteria. Any determination of legal precedence in zoning or planning matters should always and only be the duty of elected, resident city councilmembers and guided only by Carpinteria residents and those appointed to its commissions and boards. Carpinterians should govern Carpinteria. The City’s Housing Element plan outlines, among many things, the state’s quantitative measure of the housing shortage in Carpinteria. The Housing Element also suggests zoning changes and incentives to increase density. Zoning changes are not necessary to address the problem. There are under-utilized properties in District 5 that could be repurposed as solutions to the housing shortage rather than increasing zoning density. I would pursue repurposing what have become drug den hotels along Carpinteria Avenue near City Hall. There are also underutilized complexes along the south side of the freeway, west of Casitas Pass Road. In addition, I would pursue a process where “second home” nonresident property owners would be obligated to contribute funding to replenish the available housing that they’ve effectively removed from the market. I would also pursue remedies to nonconforming zoning density, just as the IRS does by adjusting property tax to the current rates when a property changes hands.

Reflect on a recent city council decision. Would you have made a different decision? Why or why not? The council made a mistake in not allowing an advisory vote to receive public input on the Surfliner Inn project. Poor governance leads to legislation by initiative. Managing the General Plan’s land use and zoning ordinances by exception through a ballot initiative is a slippery slope. Relying on the dysfunctional relationship between the council and staff as the mechanism to anticipate and resolve unintended consequences is unlikely to succeed. Your choice for the District 5 Council seat and Measure T happen together. In any range of outcomes, I believe thoughtful development of hotel beds and second floor residential space downtown should be promoted equally. Successful cities’ downtown districts invariably have a thriving residential presence that contributes to support small businesses. Mixed use development designs with street level commercial space and second story residential space like those at Linden and Ninth Street and Carpinteria Avenue west of Linden should be a priority. Another alternative is “hop-scotch” development where hotel space can be spread over multiple near adjacent properties. The council missed these opportunities with the commitment at 700 Linden Ave. A number of other Linden Avenue properties are now in various stages of development also, presenting a once in a generation opportunity for the council to manage the future of Carpinteria’s character. These and other fallow properties in District 5 need to be repurposed with a collective vision of what Carpinterians want, weighing public opinion over paid consultants’ advice. The Downtown Overlay promises to provide objective design criteria to eliminate subjective interpretation by unelected, nonresident staff. I will hold the council accountable to fulfill this promise and create a transparent culture to keep the public informed of, and involved in, complex development issues.

A blooming evening PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON A Girls Inc. of Carpinteria gala held over the weekend saw Carpinterians draped in elegance for Bloomington: A Jane Austen Era Affair. This year’s gala was held in honor of Carpinteria resident Kevin Baird, a member of the Girls Inc. of Carpinteria board and founder of Baird Wealth Strategy Group, for his more than 30 years supporting the organization. “Kevin’s dedication to our organization and local girls over the years is something we are truly grateful for. We are thrilled to honor him at this year’s gala,” Jamie Collins, executive director of Girls Inc. Carpinteria, said in a release earlier this month. “This year’s Jane Austen era event also pays homage to one of the most famous and beloved writers in English literature, who inspired countless women and truly embodied the words ‘strong, smart, and bold.’” This year’s event was sponsored by S&S Seed, CARP Growers and Chevron. Girls Inc. of Carpinteria is located at 5315 Foothill Rd. in Carpinteria. Learn more at girlsinc-carp.org.

Few businesses operate at the same location and within the same family for 82 years; Valley Barbers, located at 4920 Carpinteria Ave., is an exception. Owner Annie Gonzales shares the long and short of her business ownership (and her other occupation) in the following interview with CVN.

BOSSES BY BOSTROM INGRID BOSTROM

What year did your grandfather open Valley Barbers? When did you take over? My grandfather, Marty Marcias, established Valley Barbers in 1940. He partnered with Zip Gonzalez. In 2015, I took over.

Cafe, The Palms (will be greatly missed), Sandcastle Time, The Spot and Coastal View News – all long-standing businesses in beautiful Carpinteria that have been around since before I was born.

What motivated you to take ownership of the shop? I wanted to keep my grandfather’s legacy alive. He supported a large family of 10 children with his career as a barber. I am forever grateful for him. Numerous customer reviews reference affordable prices and friendly service. What do you consider most noteworthy about Valley Barbers? We do our best to maintain the original barbershop feel. It’s one of the few businesses that has been in Carpinteria for many years.

I see from your email signature that you are also a nurse. Please share a little about your positions in nursing. I’ve been a nurse for 15 years, specializing in Surgical ICU at Cottage Hospital. Currently I am Director of Nursing at BrightStar Care of Santa Barbara, where we do skilled nursing care in the home (such as IV infusions). I am also an Assistant Director/Instructor for Westmont College’s accelerated BSN program. Ingrid Bostrom is a photographer, drawn to open space and stories told in each new face.

Rincon Farms owners named honorary Avofest chairs Dave and Tracy Bettles, owners of Rincon Farms, have been named as the Honorary Chairs for the 2022 Avocado Festival. Dave and Tracy live in Santa Barbara, but their avocado farms and packinghouse for their company Rincon Farms Produce, which grows, packs and ships locally grown, organic avocados, have resided in Carpinteria for 36 years – coincidentally coinciding with the anniversary of the California Avocado Festival. They have attended the annual festival since its conception. The Bettles have lived in the area since graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1985. Dave earned a degree in Agricultural Business with a minor in Spanish Literature, while Tracy received her degree in political science. Dave has worked as a field buyer, grove manager, and eventually the co-owner, and he and his wife have

three sons: Cole, Sean and Elliot. Sean, also a business graduate of Cal Poly, works alongside his parents. He works closely with the growers and buyers, packers and field workers, while Tracy manages the office and Dave oversees all aspects of the operation. Their mission is to provide sustainably grown, freshly packed California avocados to the consumer while offering the highest possible returns to growers. “We love spending time with our dog on the beach and plan to continue working in the industry as long as the rains continue,” they told CVN. They added they are grateful for their dedicated employees and for the trust and support of growers who return to Rincon Farms each season. To learn more about the Bettles, visit their website at rinconfarms.com/.

12 cherry tomatoes 2 thick slices of French bread 1 large ripe avocado ½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil Black sesame seeds

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

Arrange cherry tomatoes in a single layer in a 9x9-inch glass or ceramic (not metal) baking dish. Bake uncovered for approximately two hours. Remove from the oven and refrigerate until ready to use. Lightly toast the French bread slices. Cut the avocado in half and discard the seed. Thinly slice the avocado and spread it on the French bread slices. Drizzle olive oil over the avocado. Add roasted cherry tomatoes on top. Enjoy any time of the day. Tip: I also like to sprinkle Trader Joe’s “Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend” on top.

H E AT H E R G I A C O N E With Carpinteria’s 36th Annual Avocado Festival upon us, I’ve been busy baking up a storm of avocado brownies for the Howard School Fundraiser. I’ve been tasked with making 1,500 brownies for the school to sell at the festival, as it is one of their largest fundraisers of the year. Since my Avocado Brownie recipe is top secret, I decided to create a just-as-delicious avocado inspired treat to share with you instead. In doing some research, I talked to my good friend Thais, chef and owner of Tharios Kitchen on Santa Claus Lane. I discovered that in her home country of Brazil people were really big on eating avocados with lemon and sugar, and that made me want to create a recipe with some sweet-lemony goodness to highlight this creamy fruit. After trial and error and some experimenting, I came up with this scrumptious Avocado Coffee Cake. The pistachios add a nice nutty flavor while also enhancing the green color. The white chocolate chips add the perfect pop of sweetness, and the avocado makes this rich cake even richer, while adding a bit of nutritious value, so go ahead, get crazy, and eat it up!

Nomura guest of American Scandinavian Foundation PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON The American Scandinavian Foundation held a kickoff party to allow members to meet new interns and reconnect with other members on Saturday, Sept. 24, which was also attended by special guest Mayor Wade Nomura. Nomura attended and promoted his book “Creating Destiny”, an autobiography detailing Nomura’s life growing up as a Japanese American shortly after the second world war, and his journey into competitive sports and community service. “Recent immigrants, be they from Japan or Scandinavia, have much in common in terms of what it means to leave ‘home’ and settle in a different country and culture,” wrote Bonnie and Kellie Hammett, members of the foundation and hosts of the kickoff party. “It will be interesting to learn about the similarities and differences.”

THROWBACK

Canalino School discovers 1954 time capsule during construction

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

THURSDAY

BY JUN STARKEY

As construction under Measure U continued at Canalino School over the summer, a construction worker began cutting into the corner of what was the original school building, when he discovered a hidden treasure buried in the wall: A copper time capsule from 1954. It was a fascinating find, said Canalino Principal Jamie Persoon, who said she could find no record of the capsule being buried. Upon reviewing the contents of the capsule, however, Persoon said it was clear that the placement of the time capsule was a city-wide effort. The capsule was officially named the Cornerstone Capsule and was a coordinated effort of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of California and the Carpinteria Unified School District. On Tuesday, Aug. 24, 1954, the groups held a ‘Cornerstone Ceremony’ to place the capsule in its resting place. The Carpinteria Herald printed a special edition advertising the event, and a plaque was placed on the outside of the building, ironically, right where the capsule was buried. Once a welder cut the copper box open, inside Persoon found a treasure trove of historical documents: A roster of all Canalino students and teachers circa ‘54, maps of the Canalino and Aliso Elementary School grounds, a ledger of all district

STARKEY PHOTOS

Several documents and records were recovered from the time capsule, including rosters of students and faculty, and school curriculum and policies of the time. trustees from 1886 to 1954, records of the district’s curriculums, handbooks with school policies, several local newspapers and more than 30 other records compiled from the time. Newspapers included a copy of the Santa Barbara Star; three editions of the

Santa Barbara News-Press and the special edition copy of the Carpinteria Herald, which advertised the Cornerstone ceremony. The construction worker had been using a saw to cut through the wall where the capsule was hidden, and partially cut through the box, also cutting through a few of the files inside. Persoon said she will be scanning all documents to catalog everything as a PDF, and then donating the originals and box to the Carpinteria Historical Museum. “They know how to keep these documents preserved,” she said. “But I want copies so the kids can make their own capsules based on this one.” As Persoon was talking to CVN about the discovery on Monday, Sept. 26, she called out to Esther Gonzalez, a retired longtime district employee who works as a substitute secretary just down the hall from Persoon. She hadn’t announced the discovery to the staff but knew Gonzalez had gone to Canalino during the year the capsule was buried. Persoon asked Gonzalez what her teacher’s name was, to which Gonzalez replied “Mrs. Krienke.” Persoon scanned the roster, and found Gonzalez’s maiden name, Esther Irene Cerda, listed as #14 out of 73 kindergarten students, to both of their excitement. “Oh wow, that’s just incredible,” Gonzalez said.

The copper time capsule sits next to all the documents recovered from the 1954 capsule buried at Canalino School in Carpinteria.

CARPINTERIA MASONIC LODGE ARCHIVES

The Carpinteria Masonic Lodge laid the northeast cornerstone at the new Canalino School in 1954. The symbol is meant to ensure a Masonic tone at the foundation of the institution. Masonic cornerstones were also laid at Carpinteria High School (now Carpinteria Middle School) in 1930, Main School (now Carpinteria Children’s Project) in 1938 and Carpinteria High School in 1962.

The Canalino School plaque was placed on the corner of the original building in 1954, after the time capsule was buried in the same place inside the wall.

Warriors water polo 3-3 midway through season BY RYAN P. CRUZ | PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

Carpinteria boys’ water polo had a magical season last year – making history with a CIF-SS Division 5 Championship and finishing the year as the SoCal Regional Division 3 runner up – but this year, despite returning with the 2021 CIF Player of the Year Asher Smith and goalie Jacob Taff, the Warriors have dropped a handful of games. They enter the second half of the season standing 3-3 overall. After losing the season opener against Dos Pueblos, the Warriors won two games back-to-back, defeating Righetti 9-7 at home and beating Rio Mesa 14-12 on the

road. Then Carpinteria hosted a strong Burbank squad, losing 7-16 to bring their record to 2-2. The squad then had a second-place finish at a weekend tournament in Malibu, with the Warriors winning three out of four games over two days, though the games do not count on the official team record. Then last week, the Warriors hosted Foothill Tech, and star junior Smith added to his season total with another seven-goal performance – his third of the year – to lead the team to a 13-6 victory.

Head Coach Stephen Kim gets the Warriors ready for action against Buena.

Carpinteria stayed at home this week for a non-league matchup against the Buena Bulldogs, and struggled to overcome an early deficit, eventually losing to the visitors 7-11. “Buena came out of the gates with a 0-3 lead, and never gave up the lead,” said Carpinteria Head Coach Stephen Kim. The Warriors fought to stay in the game, bringing the score within two in the third quarter before falling behind again in the fourth and final period. Smith led the team with a team-high four goals, while Justin Main, Griffin Yamaoka and Cody Schwasnick each scored a goal of their own. Smith has already scored 41 goals this year, while Main is the Warriors’ secondleading story with 19 goals. Jake Ehlers has five goals on the season; Yamaoka has four; Schwasnick, Eli Sheaffer, and Aiden Alcaraz have two goals each; and newcomer Jacob Otsuki has scored one. Goalie Jacob Taff has been solid in the net, averaging over ten saves a game so far this season, with 62 saves over six games. Next up, Carpinteria will hit the road to renew a rivalry against the Santa Ynez Pirates. Last season, the Warriors won the matchup between the two teams, 13-5. After Santa Ynez, the Warriors will stay on the road for three games in a row, returning home on Oct. 11 to host Nordhoff.

ABOVE, Justin Main is the secondleading scorer on the Warriors, with 19 goals this season. BELOW, Griffin Yamaoka was one of four Carpinteria players to score in a 7-11 loss to Buena.

Carpinteria, California

Warriors tennis hits rhythm with back-to-back wins

Carpinteria hosted two girl tennis matches this week, with the Warriors coming out on top in both matches to move to 7-4 overall on the season. Against Santa Paula, the Warriors were a perfect 9-0 in doubles play, with the dynamic duo of Ariana Lounsbury and Charlotte Cooney teaming up for yet another undefeated 3-0 showing. The two have partnered together throughout the season without dropping a set. “It doesn’t matter who they are playing, they seem to step up to the challenge,” said coach Charles Bryant. “Both are so athletic and that helps in so many ways. They seem to have a sixth sense on the court.” New doubles partners Elena Vargas and Olivia Broughton also finished the day 3-0, as did the duo of Stephanie Ramirez and Sasha Porinsh. In singles play, Zahra Porinsh went 3-0. Santa Paula snuck three sets, but Carpinteria took the victory 15-3. The Warriors stayed at home to host Segerstrom for a non-league match, in a rematch of last year’s CIF wild card match. Carpinteria outlasted Segerstrom to hold on to a 10-8 victory, led again by the perfect doubles play of Lounsbury and Cooney. Coach Bryant pointed out that the Warriors have developed a deep roster, with many of the young players taking active roles as the season progresses. “I was really proud of how we played today,” he said. “We are starting to develop some depth in our lineup as well as many players are getting more and more playing time and keeping the competition high in our practices.” He was particularly impressed with the play of Maria Sanchez and Valeria Zamora. “Both stepped up in a huge way and delivered two massive wins each for us. They played controlled tennis and just showed a lot of heart out on the courts today.” Carpinteria is now 7-4 overall and 4-1 in the Citrus Coast League, heading into a heavy week with matches against Nordhoff and Malibu.

Freshman Jamaica Cook grabbed medalist honors, completing the course in 49 strokes.

Warriors girls golf finds success on the links

After a few years without a golf team, Carpinteria renewed its program for 2022, and the girls have already found success in their first taste of competition under new head coach Craig Cook. The team is led by freshman Jamaica Cook, who has medaled in both of the team’s early matches this year. It started with the team’s first dual match against Channel Islands, where the young freshman was a low medalist with a team best score of 49. As a team, the Warriors outlasted the Raiders and took the overall win by eight strokes. Two days later, Jamaica had another standout performance during the team’s first Citrus Coast League match, placing second out of more than 40 golfers with a score of 41. As a team, the Warriors placed sixth overall, despite having two players cancel at the last minute. With another player, the team could have qualified in the top three, coach Craig Cook said. Senior Elizabeth Delgado Flores was the Warriors’ second-best finisher with a 58, while freshman Kiana Kiah shot a 61 and sophomore Evelyn Calkins rounded out the scoring with a 65. “The girls are showing improvement from each match, and it is great to see,” coach Cook said.

Carpinteria volleyball drops two in a row

After sweeping two opponents in a row the previous week, the Warriors girls volleyball squad hit a tough stretch, dropping back-to-back losses against Nordhoff and Malibu. Against Nordhoff, the team started off strong, but “hit a wall” midway through the first set, according to head coach Greg Novak, and couldn’t recover against the bigger Ranger squad. “We were definitely outsized by about six feet in every rotation,” Novak said. “Though we were outsized, we executed some plays we’ve been practicing, which was good to see.” Two days later, the Warriors headed to Malibu for a league match. Against the Sharks, Carpinteria took the first set, 25-22, before dropping three sets in a row for the loss. Despite the loss, coach Novak said the team showed some promise, with “good comebacks, improved blocking, strong serving and great defensive plays.” Lizbeth Alpizar led the team with seven kills and two aces, while Libero Ashley Mora got in on the action and collected three downball kills and four aces. Sawyer Taff created a nice blocking wall with Averi Alexander to get four points. “Though we suffered the loss we learned a lot tonight and have more ideas for practice to improve our game,” Novak said. Carpinteria is now 3-5 overall and will host Hueneme at home on Thursday.

Cate’s eight-man football team followed up on its first win of the season with another blowout victory, 65-14, over Santa Clara. Quarterback Pen Brooks got the scoring started right away, with a big 65-yard score on the first play from scrimmage. After that, it was all Rams on offense, as three different players scored on the ground: senior Zaq Asuamah, junior Kristian Scurtis and sophomore Jona Sansum. The Rams would head into halftime up 44-0, without having to attempt one pass. Cate is now 2-1 heading into a big rivalry game at home against Thacher at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium for a special “Thursday Night Lights” game. Last year, Thacher was the only team to beat Cate in a 44-40 thriller. Cate went on to win the CIF-SS title. In girls volleyball action, Cate went 1-1 in two games last week, defeating Grace Brethren in three straight sets before being swept by a strong La Reina squad. Against Grace Brethren, coach Jordon Dyer said the team had a great showing, with “everyone stepping up and working together.” The sets scores were 25-14, 25-12 and 25-13. Against La Reina, the Rams fell behind early and could not recover, losing the first set 8-25. The second set was tied at 15-15 before La Reina took control for a 25-18 win. The final set went to La Reina, 25-17. “Got to take our hat to La Reina, they outplayed us, and it showed on the scoreboard,” Dyer said. “Tonight showed that we’ve got a lot of work to do. We now have to move forward and focus on getting better at tomorrow’s practice.”
