Linden Avenue overcrossing scheduled to close for up to three weeks

Local construction workers prepare to lay pavement on the new Linden Avenue overcrossing. As early as Sunday, May 20, the portion of Linden Avenue that crosses the freeway will be closed for up to three weeks in order for roadways to be built connecting to the new overcrossing. A section of Linden Avenue and Ogan Road leading up to the overcrossing will also be closed to vehicles. During most of the closure, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to use the overpass. “We’re feeling optimistic that things will go well and contractors may not need the full three weeks,” said Kirstin Ayars, community liaison for Hwy 101: Linden and Casitas Pass Project. If contractors finish early they receive daily bonuses. When this portion of the work is completed, traffic will shift to the new overcrossing. The overall project has reached its half-way point. “We’re in a sweet spot, you can really see improvements,” Ayers concluded.

Women’s Fund gives $100K to Boys & Girls Club

The Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara has awarded seven nonprofits grants for the 2017–18 grant cycle, a total of $535,000. Since 2004, the Women’s Fund has donated over $6.6 million to the community. Among the awardees this year is the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County who received $100,000 to replace and rebuild the Carpinteria Club’s leaky roof. The Fund’s mission is to provide grants focused on the critical needs of women, children and families in south Santa Barbara County. The United Boys and Girls Clubs was a top vote-getter, according to Shelley Hurst, co-chair of the Steering Committee for the Women’s Fund. “Members saw the need, a damaged roof, and the merit, to support a clubhouse that serves 550 children. Also, the reputation of the United Boys and Girls Clubs is strong. It is a well-run organization. We are so proud to assist them in this effort.” Michael Baker, CEO of United Boys & Girls Clubs, expressed his appreciation and stated that “because of this very generous investment we will be able to repair and replace our Carpinteria Club roof.” For more information or to join the Women’s Fund, visit

Caltrans is moving forward with plans to rebuild and repair six bridges along State Route 192 following debris flows and flooding in the Montecito area. This major construction effort will include rebuilding Montecito Creek, Romero Canyon Creek, Toro Canyon and the Arroyo Paredon Creek bridges. Bridge demolition began Monday, May 7, and will continue through early June. Caltrans will begin with removal of the Toro Canyon Bridge, followed by Romero Canyon Creek, Arroyo Paredon and Montecito Creek Bridges. The contractor for this $20 million three-bridge replacement project is Security Paving Company of Sylmar, California, and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2019. Lash Construction of Santa Barbara is the contractor for the $10 million replacement of the Arroyo Paredon Bridge. There is currently no estimate when construction will be completed on this bridge. State Route 192 remains closed between Sycamore Canyon/Camino Viejo Road and Cravens Lane. While a segment of State Route 192 is open to motorists, Caltrans strongly advises through-traffic to use US 101. Caltrans reports that it is nearing completion on the design of the new bridges and is moving toward construction at an accelerated pace. The demolition process follows the completion of the relocation and repair of utility lines by Southern California Edison and the Southern California Gas Companies. These bridges will likely be closed for several months to through traffic, except for emergency vehicles and first responders, up to the time of demolition, according to Caltrans. Barricades and locked gates will secure each location with detours available via local roads. In June, Caltrans will demolish the bridge rails on the San Ysidro Creek and Toro Creek bridges. Both of these bridges remain open under one-way traffic control via stop and yield signs which will remain in place until these repairs are complete. For more information on this project and for traffic updates on other Caltrans projects in Santa Barbara County, residents may call the District 5 Public Affairs Unit at 549-3237 or visit release.htm#sb/.

CFS and Summerland prep for spring musicals Director praises power of drama in elementary school

By Peter Dugré Kindergarteners through fifth graders at Summerland and Carpinteria Family schools have been warming up their voices and refining their acting skills for the better part of the spring semester in preparation for what is becoming tradition for the two small elementary schools. Each has performed musicals in past years and takes pride in the student enrichment that comes from the unique experience of putting on all-school plays. CFS will perform Disney’s “Aladdin Jr.” on Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19, at 6 and 4 p.m. at Carpinteria Middle School, and Summerland School will perform “Seussical Kids” on Friday and Saturday, June 1 and 2, at 6:30 and 1 p.m. at the Main School Auditorium. Director of both plays Laezer Schlomkowitz is a professional actor and has specialized in teaching and directing children in dramatic arts. He considers drama at the elementary school level an unrivaled strategy for imparting empathy and cultural awareness in students. When students get on stage and stand in the shoes of a character it breaks down

Measure t will bring in millions locally

Measure T will tax all cannabis operations within the unincorporated area of Santa Barbara County, from cultivation to distribution, and is projected to infuse millions of dollars of revenue into the county each year. I urge local residents to support Measure T, which was drafted by our First District Supervisor Das Williams. Passage of the cannabis tax measure in June will facilitate compliance with the county’s strict new regulations and equip local law enforcement with resources to shut down irresponsible and illegal operators who draw public nuisance complaints. The county estimates the Measure T general tax on gross receipts will generate between $6 million and $30 million per year, and those funds can be applied to youth and senior citizen services, public safety, parks and recreation, mental health services and other critical community needs. State licenses issued to Carpinteria Valley cannabis farmers are predominantly for small mixed-light facilities (greenhouses), and the total acreage devoted to legal cannabis operations is dwarfed by other local farming activities. Our valley produces a rich diversity of crops, including avocados, exotic tropical fruits, lemons, cut flowers, orchids, head lettuce, berries and cannabis. Newly adopted cannabis regulations mandate odor and light pollution controls, ban nearly all outdoor growing operations in the unincorporated Carpinteria area, and prohibit commercial cannabis activities near youth organizations, schools and daycares. Responsible Carpinteria Valley cannabis growers embrace the regulated market and this tax measure. I urge local residents to support Measure T given the benefits the tax revenue will bring to our community.

taxing marijuana, yes. Measure t, no.

Problem: the current ballot proposal diverts the money collected into the General Fund instead of into a special fund. A special fund would dedicate all the taxes collected for the problems known and unknown associated with this recently legalized psychoactive substance. Police, mental health, interdiction and, most importantly, education, are areas which will need funding and which should not have to compete with other General Fund claimants. Can you imagine education winning out over road maintenance? Santa Barbara County’s General Fund is currently $50 million dollars in debt. This monetary dark hole will grow due to the major revenue losses following the December fires and January floods. Floods which may be recurring.



“First of all, I believe that students can

learn more through art and music. I read that students can learn problem solving along with algebra. I think it is cool that students can communicate not through speaking.”

–Cornelius Patterson

The Board of Supervisors may be salivating “from approximately $6.7 million to approximately $26.9 million” annual revenue which the County Auditor-Controller estimates the Measure may generate. But are we wise to entrust this monetary bonanza to the Board when there are so many pressures and temptations on them? Read the Sample Ballot & County Voter Information Guide, there is a compelling argument against the measure and a surprisingly weak response co-signed by our District Supervisor which does not at all address the concerns raised. Instead it assures us “Unless you are a cannabis cultivator or user, you will not pay one cent of this tax.” There are already people in our community paying out of pocket for problems arising from the use of marijuana, never mind the stench. We are told “The answer is clear: Vote yes on Measure T” again without addressing the too-real issues raised in the argument against. The Board of Supervisors knew what they were doing when they wrote this as a General Fund windfall. Do your own research on this issue. This will likely be the only time we will be able to vote for or against it.

CVA says “yes” vote on Measure t

The Carpinteria Valley Association has been speaking out and attending the Board of Supervisors meetings for the past year continually advocating for strict odor abatement measures to combat the noxious odors emanating from the current indoor and outdoor cannabis grows. The county has created very strict requirements for cannabis cultivation in their land use ordinance which is soon to be submitted to the Coastal Commission for their required approval.

Sanitary District spares trees in updated building plan By PEtER DuGRé

Months of public testimony persuaded the Carpinteria Sanitary District Board of Directors to vote unanimously on May 15 to save “most, if not all,” trees at the Sixth Street site of the CSD offices. At prior City of Carpinteria Architectural Review Board meetings, neighbors to the 5300 Sixth St. office implored decision-makers to spare nine trees on site, in particular three giant blue gum eucalyptus trees. CSD is proposing to build a new office to replace its aging temporary trailers, and as part of the plan wanted to fell the eucalyptus trees to mitigate the risk of sudden limb drop. The plan did not go

over well with neighbors who contended the trees are majestic landmarks and important habitat for wildlife in the parklike setting surrounding the creek-side office. CSD had proposed sparing the 400-year-old Portola Sycamore tree and replacing nine other trees with 27 native sycamores and oaks. CSD will update its building plans to reflect sparing the trees before a June City of Carpinteria Planning Commission hearing. Neighbors have also expressed concerns about the proposed building’s size and orientation on the property. Look for the full length article online this week at and in next week’s edition.

includes rules for odor abatement, fencing, security, parking, night lighting, site visits and more. All growers will need to apply for three licenses: a land use permit, a state license and an annual county business license. The fees generated will reimburse those involved: the planners, sheriff and agricultural staff for their time in processing permits and conducting annual inspections. Not only will outdoor grows not be permitted in our valley, there will also be a limit. However, those cannabis operators who choose not to become legal and thereby pay to acquire the three different permits/licenses will need to be shut down. As of April 20, there are approximately 30 operators in the Carpinteria Valley who have received temporary licenses from the state but in order to renew them they will have to meet with a planner this summer to make sure they’re in compliance with the new regulations. Unfortunately, there are many others who have no interest in becoming legal and the purpose of the Tax Measure T is to tax the industry to ensure compliance and eradicate the black market. So CVA recommends a yes vote in order to shut down those operating illegally.

Anna Carrillo, Director Carpinteria Valley Association

On the importance of art in schools

In my opinion, I think music and art should be taught in our schools. First of all, I believe that students can learn more through art and music. I read that students can learn problem solving along with algebra. I think it is cool that students can communicate not through speaking. The text said that music and art are used to communicate ideas. I think that it is important to learn music and art because it can calm students. I also read that if students are stressed, they should play music to overcome their stresses. In conclusion, music and art should be taught!

Spandex circus on wheels

Over the past few months, we have taken the best Mother Nature can throw at us: lingering effects of a long-term drought, the largest fire in California’s recorded history, and floods of biblical proportions. Our children have lost far too many hours and days of valuable education, our working people are still struggling to catch up for the lost hours and lost dollars on their paychecks, and businesses are still teetering on the edge of closure due to the effects of being shut down during the natural disasters. We on the south coast have endured freeway closures, ramp closures, road closures, endless mandatory evacuations, the loss of homes and even the loss of life. Endured we have. For most of us, life is beginning to return to a new normal. We have figured out how to get around the local area and avoid still closed roads and bridges. Life is starting to settle back into a pleasant routine. But now, enter Amgen and its spandex circus. All to the benefit of a company’s ego and marketing scheme we once again have to endure road closures and disruptions of business and daily life, all so Amgen can have its race. This is the year that Amgen should have looked at the situation and bypassed the South Coast in a gesture of true care and consideration. They didn’t. Barring that, our elected representatives and officials, you know, the folks who are supposed to watch out for us should have, said “not this year Amgen.” They didn’t. As far as I’m concerned, Amgen, the clowns on bicycles, and the obviously bought and paid for lackeys in government can kiss my ass and keep riding straight to hell.

No comprendo lack of sibling policy at DLI

Regarding the decision not to let siblings automatically enter the Dual Immersion Program, I’m having a hard time comprehending. What was your logic in making this decision? Quoting Leanne Patterson and Hortensia Rodrigues (“Letters,” CVN, vol. 24. no. 32), “The DLI program is to bridge achievement and cultural divides in our community and our families; it is only logical and necessary for us, the parents, to have our whole family in the duel immersion program.” You chose not to add a third DLI class. There are over 68 families hoping to lottery into the program. The need for another classroom is desired. Your reasoning… we need to do an independent study. Wasn’t there a study done before implementing the program? This program is being independently evaluated by UCSB education department, looking at students’ proficiency in English and Spanish at the beginning and the end of each school year. They are looking at achievement

data on grade level standards each year for DLI students, in comparison to nonDLI students. They will be using state testing data once students are in third grade. Finally, the researchers are tracking executive functioning skills on DLI versus non DLI students via teacher surveys, as the hypothesis is that DLI students have increased executive functioning skills due to brain development when learning two or more languages as a young child. Funds for an independent study could be used instead to hire a physical education teacher. As a former PE teacher, I understand the time and dedication it takes preparing quality lessons plans. Many classroom teachers do not understand how to teach or implement sports skills. PE is not about throwing a ball out and yelling, “kick the ball.” In conclusion, you have dashed parents hopes and dreams for their children.

Spanish-language instruction across schools

As the parent of an incoming kindergartener in fall 2019, a language educator for two decades, and someone who was raised bilingual from birth (English is my fourth language), I’ve been following the discussion surrounding the possible expansion of the Dual Language Immersion program very closely. I’m thrilled that DLI at Canalino Elementary School enables children to achieve EnglishSpanish fluency during their primary school years, and I’m a big fan of the 9010 model. I would love for the program to continue to expand. As I watched the last CUSD board meeting, I couldn’t help but notice the desperation in parent’s voices as they worried their child might not win the golden ticket (aka the DLI lottery). While DLI addresses Proposition 58, which promotes instruction in non-English languages in public school, we also need to find a solution for all CUSD families. The CUSD board should make a commitment to Spanish-language instruction for all K-12 students in addition to the DLI program. In the public school system in the Netherlands, English-language instruction begins in first grade with just one hour a week. The learning is playful with songs, games, poems and hand motions. When my older daughter spent part of first grade in the Netherlands, I was in awe at how much English her peers had learned in four months. By the time kids graduate from elementary school in sixth grade, they can choose from three tracks: 100 percent English, 50-50 English-Dutch, or 100 percent Dutch (this still includes English language classes). I would love for our district to develop a strategic plan to teach kids Spanish throughout their K-12 education in CUSD; it would be a huge asset to our diverse local community.

Sheriff’s Office needs leadership change

As a sheriff with Santa Barbara County for 32 years dedicated to keeping the public safe, I regret to say that our Sheriff’s department needs a leadership change to face our mounting challenges. That’s why I’m running for Sheriff. From patrol to training recruits and leading crisis intervention training to being the Police Chief for Solvang and Buellton, my experience, training and energy are what’s necessary to lead our department into the 21st century. Our department’s mission is to protect the public, not do the job of immigration enforcement. I support the California Law that directs our department NOT to report undocumented people with minor, non-violent offenses, to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). We need undocumented residents to be willing to report crimes and come forward as witnesses. Our officers need to focus on local crime, not be diverted by doing ICE’s federal job. We need more training on dealing with high stress situations and people with mental illness, education about the Gun Violence Restraining Order, and on the use of force. The crisis invention program I implemented three years ago trains officers on de-escalating these situations and coordinating with social service agencies. The Grand Jury Report just released makes it clear that for the past 15 years, overtime costs have not been addressed. Overtime costs $10 million per year. Every resident and Sheriff’s Office employee needs and deserves a Sheriff who is a leader. You need a Sheriff who has an open door policy, willing to listen to residents, department personnel and our County Supervisors who are making difficult budgetary decisions. With mail in voting starting now and leading up to Election Day on June 5, I ask you for your vote. Together we will make our community stronger and safer.

Christensen’s integrity is unmatched

Lynn Hogan, a county employee since 1988, has pleaded guilty to embezzling over $2 million dollars. Over the past nine years, an employee with a drug addiction out smarted the Santa Barbara County Auditor-Controller’s office. Their lax internal controls, antiquated financial systems and incompetence led to theft that went on for nearly a decade. Luckily for taxpayers, a newly hired frontline employee from the Tax Collector’s office immediately noticed irregularities and reported those to a supervisor. Since the theft was discovered, the current Auditor-Controller and Betsy Schaffer, the Assistant Auditor-Controller, have not made any significant changes. The county remains at risk. On June 5, voters will have an opportunity to elect a new Santa Barbara County Auditor-Controller. I ask that you vote for Jennifer Christensen. Christensen currently serves as the County’s Chief Investment Officer. She manages a $1.6 billion dollar portfolio for the county,


Viewpoint Honoring our teachers By Dr. SuSan SalciDo, Santa BarBara county SuperintenDent of SchoolS

Teacher Appreciation Week marks a very special celebration for teachers, and teachers across our county and state will be recognized by parents, families and the community for their excellent and inspirational work in our local classrooms. The timing is especially appropriate: last week we announced that Mandi de Witte, science teacher at Carpinteria High School, will serve as the 2019 Santa Barbara County Teacher of the Year. She is a remarkable individual who inspires students and colleagues alike, and will do a particularly excellent job in representing all of our outstanding teachers countywide. To all of our teachers, we say thank you, in the strongest voice possible. You shoulder an enormous range of responsibilities that seem to grow every year. From addressing safety concerns, to providing social and emotional support, from planning content-specific lessons, to using technology to advance the learning, you do it all for every one of our students, who depend on your skill, professionalism and energy every day. Our school year has been full of change and difficulties. We are implementing new standards and assessments. We have faced school closures and disasters. We have a changing federal education system and a new state education system. We are doing all we can to keep up with the pace of change. And through it all, I have an immeasurable amount of hope for our future because of our inspirational teachers. Mandi de Witte, our 2019 Santa Barbara County Teacher of the Year, is one example of this hope. She put it perfectly by saying, “An outstanding teacher

believes every single child can learn, brings joy to learning, and motivates each student to be their best inside and outside the classroom. “I am a teacher because I love education, but every child does not; indeed, many students have become disenfranchised by school. My core mission as a teacher is to ignite the spark of curiosity in each student and give them confidence to question, explore and enjoy learning. “Students who are confident, hopeful, and empowered give rise to secure, thoughtful, and compassionate community members. My ultimate goal for all students is to teach them how to learn, and to love doing it—irrespective of the subject matter. “Astrophysicist Neal deGrasse Tyson captured my feelings well, saying, ‘Good education is not what fills your head with facts, but what stimulates curiosity. You then learn the rest of your life.’ “Whether my students can recount the structure and function of all cellular organelles 10 years from now matters little to me,” de Witte concludes. “What I care about is fostering a sense of wonder and analytical ability so they never stop learning.” Her words speak to the enormous responsibility of our teachers. The professionals who undertake these challenges deserve our respect, our support and our acknowledgment of the difference they make in our communities, our society at large and our nation as a whole. Teachers’ roles are vital, and we are honored to recognize their critically important accomplishments during Teacher Appreciation Week.

public schools and special districts. I’ve worked with Christensen for many years and I can assure you that she is not only highly qualified for the job, but her honesty, integrity, commitment to her job and commitment to our community is unmatched. Jennifer Christensen will safeguard taxpayer money. As a concerned taxpayer and as a fellow Carpinterian, I urge you to vote for Jennifer Christensen on June 5.

Sorry, but if you support Donald Trump as president, then any argument you have decrying sexual assault, is negated. You have no standing, and your silence is part and parcel to a movement that helps foster sexual assault. Mothers, daughters, sisters and family all count on the participation of society as a whole to defend against predators and their greatest enabler—silence. The bettering of society isn’t incumbent upon wishing away the bad; it requires participation and it’s hard work. I wrote in CVN that Al Franken committed a horrid sexual assault, and I’m glad I did. And if Bill Clinton was president today, I’d be horrified, and I’d tell him to resign. At the end of the day, it’s not illegal to support abusers and sociopaths; but anyone who says the president of the United States isn’t a moral leader, is missing the point. You either speak out against this powerful figure, or you waste the opportunity to send a message to the country and those who are being abused that you have their back—always. The one question most Trump supporters couldn’t answer is, what would you say if a family member of yours was sexually assaulted by this corrupt individual in the White House? Would anything change for this group? The answer appears to be no.

What if it was someone in your family?

On Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day, an incalculably important day.

The majority disapproves of cultivating a society that rewards sexual predators who are capable, or even successful.

8  Thursday, May 17, 2018

By Melinda Burns Mary Beth Myers wanted to spend the night of Jan. 8 at her old cottage on the banks of Montecito Creek, just below the bridge at East Valley Road and Parra Grande Lane – but she couldn’t get a fire going in the chimney. “I loved being there in the rains, feeding the fire and listening to the boulders roll down the creek,” Myers said. “I tried all day to get the fire started with alcohol, dried wood, crumpled paper – but I couldn’t. It was cold, dark and wet, so I left the cat a couple of bowls of food, and I thought, ‘No way will I stay.’ It was some kind of divine intervention. “There’s not a trace where my house was … nothing, nothing, nothing.” Before dawn on Jan. 9, a catastrophic debris flow of mud and boulders swept through Myers’ neighborhood in the 1200 block of East Valley Road, formerly part of a historic pocket of Montecito known as ‘Old Spanishtown.’ Eleven people died there, or nearly half of all those who perished in the disaster. Of the 11, nine had lived next door to Myers. Five were immigrants from Mexico and Thailand. “They were all hard-working, very busy people,” Myers said. “This was not the Montecito people think of. It was like a village in itself. I miss my neighbors.” But even as she mourns them, Myers is eager to return to the once-picturesque sycamore and oak woodland along the creek. She is asking the county to approve her plans for a two-story, corrugated steel house on nine concrete caissons sunk deep into the ground where her cottage once stood. The cottage, parts of which dated back to the 1890s, was uninsured. “My friends say, ‘You can’t possibly think about rebuilding there,’” Myers said. “But what I loved is it was literally nature. I had this whole creek. The view was magical – an untouched acre of California, a borrowed landscape.” “Is it buildable? Yes, in theory,” Myers said. On Zillow, the online real estate marketplace, her property was valued before Jan. 9 at $1.8 million. “Feels like countryside living,” the advertisement read. “I’m just pushing to build so that if it’s a buildable lot, then I’ll get my money out,” Myers said. “If I can build, I probably will build. Would I feel safe living there? Hard to say. If the weather’s bad enough, I’m just going to leave.”

First in line

Myers is one of the first in line with her rebuilding plans, out of more than 200 property owners whose homes were destroyed on Jan. 9 or remain badly damaged. Her property has been under county review since 2014, when she bought the 3,400 square-foot parcel by the creek and set out to prove that the lot was legal. Now Myers’ plans are raising the key questions that all parties will face if the community is to withstand the next flood or debris flow: How, when and where is it safe to rebuild? Should some land be preserved as a memorial park to remember the dead or, for safety’s sake, as watershed open space? (The Facebook page for a future “Montecito Memorial Healing & Meditation Park” has 760 members, but the group has not made any formal proposals.) In June of last year, the Montecito Planning Commission approved Myers’ request for a waiver from county rules that require new homes to be set back at least 50 feet from the bank of a creek. The lot was so small that strict application of the 50-foot rule would have “effectively precluded” any development there, the commission found. Myers is proposing to build within 23 feet of Montecito Creek.

Rebuilding at Ground Zero


Mary Beth Myers stands next to a twisted chandelier, all that remains of her former cottage in the aftermath of the catastrophic Jan. 9 debris flow. Myers’ cottage, parts of which dated back to the 1890s, was located at 1225 East Valley Rd. below the bridge on Montecito Creek.

“How do you define ‘safe’? How do you define ‘home’?” asks one Montecito property owner who lost everything. This February, the Montecito Board of architectural Review congratulated Myers and her architect, Jeff Shelton, for a design that was “beautifully done” – a small, dark-green house with holes for woodpeckers under the eaves. But board member Claire Gottsdanker was worried. She asked how she could make the required finding that the proposed home would “blend in” with the neighborhood if the neighborhood was no longer there. “I’m having trouble doing that in my mind,” she said. In an interview, Gottsdanker wondered why Myers’ project was “even on the agenda.” “are we going to keep building houses back where they might wash away? Isn’t that why we have health and safety regulations? The experts have told us it’s possible that these mountains are going to come down again next winter.” architectural board approval for Myers’ plans is still pending, along with county land use and building permits. On May 15, the county Board of Supervisors will consider exempting other property owners from all but a building permit, should they decide to rebuild.

‘Old Spanishtown’

Historically, the banks of Montecito Creek where 11 people died in close proximity on Jan. 9 formed part of a workingclass community along East Valley, west of Hot Springs Road, established in the 1800s. Mexican soldiers of the Santa Barbara Presidio were granted parcels of land there in lieu of long-overdue pay. “I’m not ruling out the possibility, because of what happened there, that that area may be a park,” Myers said. “It’s the

least expensive area in Montecito and it has historical significance. I’m trying to be mentally prepared, either way.” Meanwhile, the county Flood Control district, which reviews plans for building permits, has made it clear that everyone who wants to rebuild in Montecito will be able to do so. “There will be some challenging parcels, but one of the misconceptions out in the community is that there are going to be parcels that the county will not allow to be rebuilt,” Jon Frye, Flood Control engineering manager, told the Montecito Planning Commission last month. “I have never heard that in county discussions. We don’t know where that came from.” at the same time, the push to rebuild makes some Montecitans uneasy. Joe Cole, the commission chairman, asked Frye why the county wants to get people back in their homes “sooner rather than later,” when the whole community faces the danger of another debris flow in the next three-to-five years, given enough rain. That’s how long it may take for the vegetation to grow back on the scorched

mountainsides of the Thomas Fire. “If it’s riskier, why wouldn’t you want people to wait?” Cole asked. “Is it because you want to get people back on their feet? Is it property tax?” Frye answered: “We’re looking at this recovery as a pie. The flood control is merely a piece of that pie. There are so many other pieces that get into legal, financial and social aspects. It all becomes a big part of that recovery.” like most owners who lost their homes on Jan. 9, Myers has decided to wait for the Federal Emergency Management agency “recovery map” before she submits her final plans for county review. The FEMa map, which is expected in June, will show new floodwater elevations along Montecito and Carpinteria Valley creeks, based on the changed topography, post-Jan. 9. In Myers’ blueprints, the first floor of her proposed house is elevated two feet off the ground. If the FEMa map comes up with higher flood water elevations for her property, Myers said, she will ask Shelton to redesign the house so that the first floor is at least two feet above the mapped floodwater elevation, as the county requires. “You tell me where’s a safe place and no tragedy has ever happened,” Myers said. “at a certain point, how do you define ‘safe’? How do you define ‘home’? You just can’t say no to everything.” Melinda Burns is a freelance journalist based in Santa Barbara.

Parking lot improvements come with tree removal By Lea Boyd

Six mature tipuana trees growing in city parking lot number two won’t live to see another spring bloom. after years of grappling over how to preserve the trees while maintaining parking and pedestrian safety, on May 14, the City Council voted on a plan to retain three of the nine existing tipuanas at a cost of five parking spaces. Planted during a downtown improvement project in the 1990s, the tree species is well loved for its leafy green canopy but despised for its shallow root system that lifts and cracks pavement. Planters with root barriers will be installed around the three trees that will remain. a handful of residents defended the trees growing in the parking lot between rincon Brewery and Smart & Final. They asked the council to keep more than just three in order to preserve avian habitat, shade and the trees’ aesthetic contribution to the lot. “when you start taking those trees out, it’s going to look very barren there,” said Jim reginato. Councilman wade Nomura, a professional landscape designer, said that by replanting the lot with large replacement trees, the city can begin a phased landscape approach that would allow for the other three to be removed in several years if their roots continue to cause problems. The council opted to pursue a $686,000 improvement plan that will include repaving the lot and Cactus lane, replacing the tipuanas with tree species selected by the city’s Tree advisory Board, new lighting and aDa improvements. Before plans are finalized, the city will investigate the possibility of putting utility lines underground. The canopies of several existing trees are divided by power lines running through the middle.

Feds to pay lion’s share of disaster costs

The Thomas Fire and the storm that followed it on Jan. 9 have cost the city $187,000—a tab that the federal govern-

ment will largely shoulder. The pair of disasters resulted in numerous expenses including beach debris removal, street cleaning along the mud haul route between the salt marsh and the beach, storm drain cleaning, the emergency operations center, sandbag distribution and Carpinteria Creek Park clean-up. The city is working with the Federal emergency Management agency and the Federal Highway administration to get reimbursed for 75 to 90 percent of the costs, while the state is expected to pay most of what remains. Ultimately, the city should be responsible for just 2.5 to 6.25 percent. assessments are underway to determine how much roadway damage was caused by the hundreds of dump truck trips made to dispose of mud at ash avenue beach. The Federal Highway administration should cover at least a portion of the repair costs.

City Hall remodel design price rises

The city council agreed to add $52,000 to aB Design Studio’s original $152,000 contract for design services to remodel City Hall. The addition includes analysis of the city’s needs, document preparation and revisions to plans. Half of the project’s $1 million price tag will be paid for with insurance funds related to a sewer system backup that led to the discovery of asbestos flooring requiring removal.

Trust established to stabilize city pensions

By repurposing $800,000 from its lighting District Fund and adding another $200,000 from the General Fund, the city will create a $1 million Pension Stabilization Trust to “pre-fund” its unfunded pension liability. The move gives the city greater control over assets than turning over funds to CalPerS as formerly required by law. On May 14, the council voted unanimously to create

Creek Park work continues

The city has completed the first phase of work on Carpinteria Creek Park, which was inundated with mud and debris in the Jan. 9 flooding. The landscape has been cleared of the detritus, and the city will now begin repairing structures within the small park located where via real meets Carpinteria Creek. “we think we’ll be able to open that in a month or so,”

City to extend Farm Cart and Penelope’s Sno Cones agreements

New one-year terms for the Farm Cart and Penelope’s Sno Cones were unanimously approved by the city council at its May 14 meeting. The Farm Cart will be granted a new lease for its organic produce stand at the corner of Carpinteria and Maple avenues, and Penelope’s will enter a new food concession agreement for its cart at the beach end of linden avenue. Both agreements are for one-year terms with two one-year extensions.

Consultant fills in gap for Public Works director

The city council unanimously approved a $42,000 contract for CoM3 Consulting to act as a part-time interim director for the Public works Department, which recently lost its director, Charlie ebeling, to the City of Goleta. while the city actively recruits for a replacement director, City Manager Dave Durflinger said that an interim is critical to moving a number of important projects forward, including the Carpinteria avenue bridge replacement.

General Plan costs climb, grant funding too

The consultant contract to facilitate the city’s multi-year General Plan update was amended upward at this week’s city council meeting. amec Foster wheeler environment & infrastructure will receive $783,000 rather than the $666,000 contract initially approved for the extensive overhaul of the city’s guiding document. City Community Development Director Steve Goggia explained that securing a $218,000 Caltrans grant toward the project resulted in some of the additional costs, but the grant income far outweighed the costs and will produce an improved end result.

Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs” is based on a legend. Or, I guess, that if there is such a legend it’s probably itself a legend. But, regardless, the story is that, in ancient Japan, two factions—the cat people and the dog people—were at war. The cat people were being mean, maybe just because they hated dogs. Then a child hero decapitated the cat people’s leader and, thus, saved the day for the dogs. Now in the p r e s e n t d a y, the cat and dog people are still fighting like, well, you know what. Only now the battle is more subtle. Instead of an all-out samurai melee, the very evolved, very noble catloving leaders of Megasaki City are taking it to their canine counterparts through misinformation, political maneuvering, ad campaigns and fear tactics. The truth is: there is an outbreak of dog flu among the dog population. The pups are in a bad way. But Mayor Kobayashi (Kunichi Nomura), rather than pushing for treatment, or a cure, or rather even than expressing politician-brand sympathy (of the Grade A sanctimonious sort), instead, exploits this sad state of affairs to justify shipping all of the dogs in Megasaki City to Trash Island (which is exactly what it sounds like). This includes Rex (Edward Norton), who is thoughtful and bossy; Boss (Bill Murray), who isn’t bossy at all; Duke (Jeff Goldblum), who isn’t nearly as tough as his name suggests; and Chief (Bryan Cranston), who is tougher than all of the others combined (he was, after all, a stray). Evidently some of the humans of Megasaki City are all right with their pets being banished to an island full of garbage. But not everyone. Atari (Koyu Rankin), for example, isn’t having it. Atari is the distant nephew and ward of Mayor Kobayashi. So he’s important. But his dog, Spots (Liev Schreiber), was sent to Trash Island, and Atari wants his pal back. So Atari commandeers a small aircraft and heads for Trash/Dog Island. Things don’t go quite according to plan, though. And Atari makes all sorts of waves he didn’t intend to

make. Atari just wants his dog back. Kobayashi, on the other hand, wants his nephew back. But he still hates dogs. Meanwhile, a growing pro-dog resistance simmers to a boil back in Megasaki City. “Isle of Dogs” is dry and methodical, even slow. But it is also witty, charming and funny. It elicits the kind of quiet chuckle that attests to amusement beyond its decibel level. Part of this movie’s charm is its quirkiness. Consider, for example, that one of the main characters—Atari— only speaks Japanese, and his lines aren’t subtitled. So us non-Japanese speakers don’t know what he’s saying. We are left to guess, or clumsily infer, what’s up with Atari—maybe something like we do for dogs, or they do for us, but also like what we do for

each other to varying extents. There’s all sorts of nice metaphor here and throughout the movie. But the metaphor is subtle, artful and subdued—it doesn’t distract from the story or come off as some ham-handed political commentary. Director Wes Anderson is well known for his visual aesthetics. But there’s also quite a bit more to his work than meets the eye. He manages, in this movie as in others, to make a movie that is beautiful, fun to watch, and also thought-provoking. Like I said, “Isle of Dogs” is dry. And slow. But it’s also primetime Wes Anderson—quirky in all the right ways and rewarding to watch and think about. “Isle of Dogs” is rated PG-13 for thematic elements and some violent images.

It takes kind of a big irritant to get the citizens of this laid back little beach town to swing into action. In this case, the irritant was provided by Caltrans’s widening plans through Summerland and their list of “mitigations.” The word mitigate means to make things “less severe.” Mitigation money to fund community improvements became available to offset the loss of wetlands and ag land to freeway expansion. It’s kind of a tit for tat—if you take precious wetland and open space to build more lanes, then you must do something nice, maybe even restorative, in return. Summerland, already severely impacted by the four lanes running through our front yard, is bound to take a harder hit when four becomes six. So the question is, what mitigations could make this impact “less severe”? An image I have of Summerland is that of a shotgun house. Once common in the deep South, Shotgun houses were built with all the rooms in a row—so that, theoretically, you could stand at the front door and fire a shotgun straight through all the rooms and out the back door. Summerland’s downtown is like that, long and straight, one way in and one way out. What’s needed is a door punched in the side. One mitigation—probably the chief one—that Summerlanders have been clamoring for during the past few months of meetings with Caltrans is a safe pedestrian undercrossing near the center of town.

Summerland’s Community Plan states that citizen access to parks and recreational activities meets the minimum threshold. Trouble is, those opportunities lie on the other side of the freeway. It’s a long walk for many Summerlanders to get to the freeway underpass at Evans Avenue. Many parents won’t even allow their kids to use this route, regarding it as hazardous. To reach the park, pedestrians must cross what is essentially the freeway on/off ramp. A pedestrian undercrossing would open up a clogged system. Currently, 40 to 100 parking spots are planned for Wallace Avenue on the other side of the freeway. An undercrossing would give access to that critically needed parking (just try finding a parking place near the Summerland Beach Café on a weekend). An undercrossing would allow for much-needed circulation in and around town and make for safer beach access for the public, especially for kids. Access to more parking would increase both beach and park use. A freer flow of people and cars throughout the beach area and town would benefit Summerland and the community at large. The Summerland Citizens Association has a 101 committee, and those members have met with Caltrans, SBCAG and county reps on and off for the past few years. As a member of the committee, I won’t say the meetings were fruitless, but I don’t think our words and our stated wants had much impact. Caltrans, zooming along ahead of schedule, presented us with a list of mitigations deemed to be sufficiently “community-serving.” These included parking along Wallace Avenue, a bathroom at Loon Point, a vest-pocket park at Padaro, a second bathroom at Lookout Park, a class 1 bikeway along Via Real and beautification of the freeway underpass. But what about that pedestrian underpass? At a May 1 planning commission meeting, Caltrans’s mitigation plan, which included modifications to the Summerland Community Plan and the local coastal plan, was presented for approval. Residents showed up to voice frustration and protest the lack of civic engagement in the decision- making process. In a unanimous decision, planners directed staff to go back and confer with the locals. To speed up information gathering, members of the 101 committee designed

an online community survey listing the mitigations offered by Caltrans, plus the pedestrian undercrossing and a blufftop trail. Residents were asked to list their priorities. Announcements of the website went out to every box holder in Summerland. The survey is available at Visitors are welcome to chime in. Last week, around 250 people had responded. Most said they viewed Summerland as a “beach community” and listed beach access as “very important.” Sixty-two percent were in favor of a pedestrian undercrossing. (Numbers subject to change, day to day.) While the amenities officially proposed as mitigations are attractive, they don’t factor in Summerlanders’ longing for easier, better beach access. We look at our beautiful shoreline every day, gauge the tides, squint at the sparkle, watch for dolphins. It’s all there, right outside our windows—dancing sea, long sandy strand and green park. The irony is that we have to drive our cars to our own beach. I’ve said this before: so close, yet so far.

He will also have preliminary designs for what the tiny Padaro park might be like, as well as design suggestions for dolling up the freeway underpass. Plan to attend. This meeting is an important one for all of Summerland.

Calling local authors

The first Carpinteria Festival of Books is scheduled to debut at the Carpinteria Women’s Club on June 10. Sponsored by the Women’s Club and the Carpinteria Writers Group, the event will showcase books by Carpinteria and Summerland writers. Authors will have a table to display and sell their books. The deadline for applying is May 24. For more information go to One good thing: tall, purple, sweetsmelling irises appearing in the garden after a long absence. Fran Davis is an award-winning writer and freelance editor whose work appears in magazines, print and online journals, anthologies and travel books. She has lived in Summerland most of her life.

The following counts taken from May 6-13 were compiled from Carpinteria Seal Watch volunteer reports. Carpinteria harbor seal beach closure runs from Dec. 1 to June 1 each year. Seal Watch volunteers are still welcome to sign up by calling 684-2247.

High Adult Count


High Pup Count


This count varies due to the size of weaned pups. Pups grow quickly on the fat-rich milk of female seals. They can double their weight by the time they are weaned at about 24 days. once a pup is weaned, the mother shows little interest in her offspring. Pups learn to catch and eat shrimp and bottom-dwelling crustaceans after they are weaned.


Visitors to the overlook totaled about 1,278 from: Germany, England, France, Switzerland, Canada, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Australia, San Juan Islands, Colorado, Washington, California, Michigan, Georgia, New York, Texas, Pennsylvania and Minnesota.


The seals were frightened into the ocean by one vehicle and work on pier. one dog barked causing seals to go into water. Two helicopter disturbances, four people on the beach, a surfer and two unknown disturbances.

Natural History Notes

Harbor Seals have spotted coats in a variety of shades from white or silver gray to brown and black. When seals look black and shiny, they are still wet from the ocean. They are true or crawling seals, having no external ear flaps. True seals have small flippers and must move on land by flopping along on their bellies. Pacific Harbor Seals spend about half their time on land and half in water. They can dive to 1,500 feet for up to 40 minutes, although their average dive lasts three to seven minutes in shallow water. They can sleep in the water. Seals may watch people from the safety of the water, but they are wary of people while on land, and will rush into the water. If disturbed too often they may abandon their haulout site, or their pups.


A young sea lion is rescued by a Channel Islands Marine & Wildlife Institute volunteer at Carpinteria State Beach on May 8. This time of year, many sea lions become sick from domoic acid and need to be rehabbed before being released out at the islands. To report a marine mammal in distress, call the CIMWI Rescue Hotline at 567-1505. For more information visit

More Info

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. Call 684-2247 or email if you are interested in volunteering. To find out more, visit

Fran and Keith Puccinelli were long-time supporters of the arts in Carpinteria.

Puccinelli family donates art collection to UCSB

The estate of the late Carpinteria entrepreneur and gallerist Fran Puccinelli and her husband Keith Puccinelli, local artist and graphic designer, has donated 350 works, including drawings, sculptures, ceramics, sketchbooks, designs and archives to the University of California, Santa Barbara. One hundred-fifty objects, which are part of the Puccinellis’ personal collection, add to this gift and highlight the couple’s long standing interest in work by acclaimed contemporary, folk and regional artists. Estate trustees also established an endowed fund and a distinct current use fund to sustain the collection, provide for a forthcoming exhibition and catalog, and support ongoing museum programs. Artists represented in the Puccinelli gift to the Museum include: Hilary Brace, Ginny Brush, Howard Finster, Dane Goodman, Nathan Hayden, Ellsworth Kelly, Yoko Ono, Richard Ross, Alison Saar, Nicole Strasburg, Wayne Thiebaud, Dug Uyesaka and Beatrice Wood. Fran had four businesses in Carpinteria, The Coffee Grinder, SOAP, The Deli House and the Frances Puccinelli Gallery, where she was one of the first individuals to introduce the region to Keith Puccinelli, “Head-off,” 2005, North and Latin American folk art.

The Carpinteria Valley Historical Society has planned an excursion to one of Los Angeles’ least known but most important museums, The Skirball Cultural Center, on Wednesday, June 6. The Skirball’s mission is to preserve and advance Jewish heritage; its collections of Judaica and Jewish material culture are among the world’s largest. They include some 25,000 objects of art and history, including archaeological materials from biblical and later historical periods illuminating early Jewish life, ceremonial art and artifacts, everyday life during three centuries of American Jewish life, and graphics, paintings, sculpture and other works by Jewish artists. Currently on view is a special exhibition on the centennial of Leonard Bernstein’s birth: “Leonard Bernstein at 100”—a celebration of his life and work (1918–1990), the great American composer and conductor who dedicated his life to making classical music a vibrant part of American culture. The trip will provide an opportunity to explore the rich and varied, tragic and beautiful history of the Jewish people and their contributions to human culture around the world and throughout the ages. A deluxe motor coach will depart Carpinteria at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, June 6, and will return by 6 p.m. The cost for historical society members is $49; nonmembers $59. Tickets include bus transportation, admission to Skirball Museum exhibits (including the special Bernstein exhibition) and snacks & refreshments aboard the bus. To reserve a space or for more information call David at 684-3112.

Classical American composer Leonard Bernstein would be 100 years old this year.

Poets honored among Carpinteria’s literati at Luschei Poetry Awards By DeBra Herrick PHotograPHs By Joel Patterson

At a late afternoon gathering on May 11, the Carpinteria Arts Center celebrated the Glenna Luschei Poetry Award winners with an open-air poetry reading at the Carpinteria Community Garden Park. The crème de la crème was selected from nearly 100 entries by a panel of three judges and in blind review. Composing the judges panel was poet Alison Bailey, writer Fran Davis and former Poet Laureate of the State of Rhode Island Rick Benjamin. In the lead-up to the submission deadline, the Arts Center held poetry workshops in local schools, Girls Inc., the Boys & Girls Club, Island Brewing Company and elsewhere, encouraging a wide expanse of wordsmiths to pen an entry, experiment with literary arts and play with language. There were more entries this year than in previous years, and the Arts Center hopes to have even more next year, especially in the teen category, said Rebecca Stebbins, executive director. This year’s winning poems will bring insight and delight to readers: be present in nature through A.J. Ford’s poem “The Marsh;” bear witness to anguish in Ruby McCuller’s “Stomach Aches;” and bounce gleefully in the playful rhyming verse of Cornelius Patterson’s “Glimmering Carpinteria.”

Adult winner The Marsh By A.J. Ford Sunlight paints the russet reeds With a sorcerer’s brush: upside down swirls of sycamores and straw spread like spells across the water— Egrets swoop with awkward grace flapping feathered fans to cup the wind when they descend and fold into Origami. And I have become eyes

Teen winner Stomach Aches By Ruby McCullers Black tiles, and if I look long enough I can make them swim, A game between me, myself, And black tiles on the bathroom floor, The only game to play when doubled over crying Trying not to hurt so much, Trying not to hate so much, but not that kind of hurt, not only. My stomach contorting into new shapes, I used to beg to die, beg God to die before cate school senior ruby Mcculler wins in the teen division for her I knew what poem, “stomach aches.” HandEither of those words meant made chap books with her poetry (Always one for melodrama.) were given out at the event. It used to scare her, what to do when Waiting isn’t painless. I don’t have that hurt anymore, not much anymore, but I still shout that same sentiment. Things stay the same, even if they change, even as they change Nothing has truly changed. Doubled over crying, Arms, fingers like taut strings, trying to pull myself back into recognizable shapes, Tears on black tiles on the bathroom floor, Black tiles swimming. Head banging, I wanted her to notice me. Pity is a thing one has to earn. Sitting on a windowsill and thinking about concrete, Too young to operate outside of the allowed. Secrets behind desks, screaming in pencil, Erasable. Nothing I’ve said has ever been true. A home never to be lived in, towers The neighbor cut the wires with safety scissors and It didn’t work after that, That was a kind of death, I guess. Safety scissors, I got ahold of those safety scissors And I didn’t work after that, Never quite felt safe. Always been a deer in the headlights. Driving in silence, sending a message. Layers peeling off me not quite cleanly, leaving me raw leaving me Asphalt If it wasn’t grey it felt grey it felt wet It felt like Running mascara, a voice that made me want to hide. It was never enough, Sending a message. Flushed face, hands that swing and claw and a voice that Bites the air too close to that vital vein, He had to hold her back, Angry Not just disappointed. I’ve seen that red flash and the need to hurt, Never in her eyes, the red and the blind and the hurt, Never before. Fetal position on the floor, Always one for melodrama. Surprise, scratchy carpet, salt and headaches. Stomach aches, and he had to pull her off me. Probably my fault. Easy tasks not so easy anymore, Yellow tiles on the bathroom floor, Lying, all hard corners and sharp edges, Lying, freezing on the bathroom floor. Blood stains on the bathroom floor, wondering what excuse I’m Gonna conjure up this time. Nothing I’ve said has ever not been lies. Every corner holds something for her, and it comes back to this, every time. Before this I hadn’t known her voice And I said her name, Tried to call her off and she didn’t hear me, Her eyes were filled with red and hate and hurt, I need to be called off. Cutting comments, I always know just what to say. The sweet aftertaste of a fight I didn’t want to win. Someone was always going to get hurt. Acid stains on black tiles, Black tiles on the bathroom floor, Tear stains in the grout between the tiles on the bathroom floor, Memorizing the patterns of the tiles on the floor. Someone was always going to get hurt.

Four mornings a week, Jim helps lighten the workload at Carpinteria Library, and the staff praises his assistance. “he’s a big lifesaver because he comes in and does tasks such as emptying the book drop,” says branch librarian blanca Ramirez. “that lets us work on other things in the morning like getting ready for story time.” 1025 CASITAS PASS RD Along with helping at the library, Jim donates time to Carpinteria beautiful and, during the summer, at the city’s downtown visitor kiosk. here’s a closer look at this active volunteer.

Warrior women sail past Windward


Entering the postseason with a 13-6 overall record, the Carpinteria High School softball team earned a home CIF Wildcard Game on May 15 against Windward of Los Angeles. Behind senior Amanda Blair’s no-hitter, the Warriors scored three runs in the first inning in a 3-1 victory over the Wildcats. The win advances Carpinteria into the second round where they’ll travel to play in San Pedro against Mary Star of the Sea, champions of the Camino Real League. After a one-two-three inning in the top of the first, the Warriors started to make some noise in the bottom half. A one-out single by Amanda’s twin sister Mikayla Blair began the rally. Junior Isabel Studt followed with an infield hit. Senior Samantha Saenz then grounded to short, but Amanda drew a walk to load the bases. Next up, Raquel Cordero, yet another Carpinteria senior, launched a shot to deep-right center. Windward’s Eliza Solomon’s leaping attempt to track it down deflected off her glove, giving Cordero a bases-clearing double for a 3-0 Warrior lead. Meanwhile, Amanda dominated from the first, pitching a perfect game for the initial three innings and not allowing a base runner. The Warriors registered five hits against the Wildcats, but couldn’t bring another run against visiting pitcher Mia Parker. “You got to give their pitcher credit, she was a tough pitcher, we knew that coming in,” said Carpinteria coach Henry Gonzales. But Windward’s hurler would be no match for Amanda, who struck out 11 in the victory, giving up only three walks and allowing only two other base runners that reached on errors during the contest. “Our defense was good, it was solid—but we still want to be perfect, but I’ll take it,” said Gonzales. “The beginning of the season was really hard because of the rains and everything,” said Amanda. “I practiced on my own, so at the end of the year, I started getting better,” she added. After six scoreless innings, Amanda faced a challenge in the ninth when the Wildcats’ Daryn Siegel reached second on an error and made third on a wild pitch. Amanda struck out the next batter,

Ava Baron was hit by a pitch and Courtney Farkas drew a walk, and the Wildcats were back in business with the tying runs on first and second. But the Carpinteria ace struck out the next batter to end the game. “I was very pleased with our pitching and our battery of Amanda Blair and catcher Samantha Saenz. I thought they did a great job of calling the pitches, and keeping their hitters off balance,” explained Gonzales. Last season, Gonzales’ team made a nice run in the tournament, capturing the first two games. With seven seniors on the squad, he likes the Warriors chances in this year’s postseason. “We believe we can compete with most anyone we come up against, it’s just a matter of execution,” said Gonzales. It will all play out today with the first pitch down South at 3:15 p.m.

Carpinteria’s Raquel Cordero makes a double, bringing three of her teammates home.

Carlos Costilla, Jeremy Saito and Myles Morgan all went 2-1. Solomon Nahooikaika/Kirby Zapata went 3-0 and Luke Nahooikaika/ Cameron Gralewski went 2-0, and Luke then paired with Steve Poulos to win the last set. “Tony Ochoa/Ian McCurry started slow, but really played well in their second set,” said Bryant whose team advances to the second round.

Luca Kim plans to teach in Guatemala this summer.

Cate’s Metherell ’87 Grants fund unique service projects

Students serve in Guatemala and at home “I will try my absolute best to execute a successful project that will spark a positive change in the lives of these children,” says Cate School junior Luca Kim of his planned service trip to Guatemala this summer. Kim and fellow Cate School classmate Maddie Erickson are this year’s recipients of grants provided by the Mark Metherell ’87 Memorial Service Challenge. Named in memory of Mark Metherell, who died in 2008 while training and supporting Iraqi special forces, the challenge has given Cate students the opportunity to underwrite a service project of their own design for the past eight years. Students are awarded $5000 for their projects, which in the past have ranged from building a playground in Montana to a water filtration system in Southeast Asia. Kim’s project will take him back to Guatemala, to the Hogar Casa de Ángel orphanage and school, where he spent his Thanksgiving break teaching music, art, and English. This summer, he will continue the work he started with the orphans, many of whom he says have endured traumatic experiences. “Music seemed to be a way to cope with their feelings and express their pain and struggle,” Kim says. He plans to use his Metherell grant to renovate a classroom into a music room, and purchase instruments for a wind band. With a music

teacher on staff, the long-term plan is to incorporate music into the curriculum. Kim, a gifted cellist, was selected from over 1000 international student musicians to perform with the Honors Performance Series at the Sydney Opera House this summer. While he is eager to share his musicality with the Guatemalan orphans, he is most excited to see their growth through practice and playing their own instruments. Erickson’s project, like Kim’s is building off prior service—though hers will take place closer to home. In 2016, Erickson and classmate Brie Walker, both avid lacrosse players, devoted one afternoon each week to teaching the sport to girls from Canalino Elementary School. This summer, Erickson is using her Metherell grant to run three lacrosse camps at four different locations around Carpinteria. Erickson recognizes that sports opportunities are more limited for young girls than boys and she hopes to use her role to inspire confidence and healthy habits to her young squad, who chose the team name “Carpinteria Flames” in honor of the tragic events related to the Thomas Fire. Erickson says, “I am so grateful to have the opportunity to grow this program. The girls have become such a big part of my life and I can’t wait to give them an opportunity they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.”

The All Stars are, from left, at top, Assistant Coach Mark Williams, Bryant Hicks, Dave Corey, Jim Kehoe and Head Coach Matt Mora. In the middle row are players Kailey Zak, Hannah Ignacio, Alexis Kehoe, Willow Williams, Madi Mora, Celia Porazzo and Ari Alonso and Cassidy Pilkington, Ale Lucchesi and Kenzie Hicks are in front.

Carpinteria 14U All Stars reach final in Moorpark

Facing regional powerhouse teams Ventura, Newbury Park, WAGS and Santa Monica in tournament play in Moorpark May 11 to 13, the Carpinteria 14U All Stars Softball Team reached the championship game after beating the WAGS in a 5-4 nail biter. Although the Carpinteria All Stars fell to the Santa Monica Select team 4-0, they remain a heavy favorite to win districts. The team’s next play will be in the Thousand Oaks Tournament Memorial Weekend.

Real Carpinteria 14U win Revolution League title

Real Carpinteria 14U boys have been a formidable team in recent years falling short of two league titles, only to claim victory in a nail-biting match on May 12, with a 5-3 win in penalty kicks that would decide a 1-1 tie in regulation. Team parent Ryan Reeves said, “I would like to acknowledge coach Alberto “Beto” Padilla, who’s devotion to the team and players has inspired a new generation of talent since founding the team in 2011. The coach’s mentoring of these young talents that has developed such chemistry amongst the players, not to mention the passion he shares for the game. He is truly an inspiration to the parents and the kids who make up the Revolution League. For such a small community, the talent pool in Carpinteria certainly runs deep. I have witnessed AYSO boys and girls taking home tournament championships, and more recently a CIF regional win at the high school level. There is something truly remarkable going on here.”

Warriors swimming finishes strong despite tough year

Maddie Erickson will coach Lacrosse fundamentals in Carpinteria throughout the summer.

Despite only four swim meets under their collective belts this year due to the disasters that hit the community, nine Carpinteria High School swimmers still made it to CIF and the boys team won the league championship leading up to the prestigious final tournament. The girls team finished in second place in the league. In addition to fire and flood, CHS’s bad luck followed when a late arrival for CIF events in Riverside on May 11 caused numerous no-show scratches for the boys and girls teams. But senior Jordan Perez made the CIF final in the 100 backstroke and finished in 16th place with a time of 1:01.33. Sophomore Lexi Persoon also made the CIF final in the 500 freestyle with a time of 5:48.30 for a 17th place finish, and in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:15.60 for a 10th place finish.

Public Notices T.S. No.: 9948-0266 TSG Order No.: 730-1508238-70 A.P.N.: 007-331-01200 NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED 06/14/2005. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Affinia Default Services, LLC, as the duly appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded 06/21/2005 as Document No.: 2005-0057790, of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of Santa Barbara County, California, executed by: ROCCO L NORTON, A MARRIED MAN AS HIS SOLE & SEPARATE PROPERTY, as Trustor, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable in full at time of sale by cash, a cashier’s check drawn by a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state). All right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and state, and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. Sale Date & Time: 05/30/2018 at 01:00 PM Sale Location: At the main entrance to the County Courthouse, 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1560 N JAMESON LN (Unincorporated Area), MONTECITO, CA 93108 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made in an “AS IS” condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $1,149,290.12 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, (800) 758-8052 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site,, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9948-0266. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Affinia Default Services, LLC 301 E. Ocean Blvd. Suite 1720 Long Beach, CA 90802 833290-7452 For Trustee Sale Information Log On To: or Call: (800) 758-8052. Affinia Default Services, LLC, Omar Solorzano, Foreclosure Associate This communication is an attempt to collect a debt and any information obtained will be used for that purpose. However, if you have received a discharge of the debt referenced herein in a bankruptcy proceeding, this is not an attempt to impose personal liability upon you for payment of that debt. In the event you have received a bankruptcy discharge, any action to enforce the debt will be taken against the property only.

Money, more money and monogamy

life, love & manners donnie nair Dear Readers, I appreciate your comments and feedback and of course your questions. There is always someone interested in your problem and many others who are interested in a solution. Please send your questions to donnie@ or directly to me at Many thanks. Dear Donnie, How do I get out of a lease? I signed a one year lease last August and my roommate is driving me crazy. We have been interviewing sublets and they all pick up her bad vibes. It is hard to find decent affordable housing anywhere. What options do I have? SigneD, re-leaSe me Dear re-leaSe, First of all, read your lease line by line. Are there any loopholes such as job loss, job change, illness, loss of quiet enjoyment, etc.? If you are allowed to sublet, then that is your best bet. If prospects get a bad impression of your roommate you are out of luck. Take your lease to Legal Aid and get free advice. If nothing works, stick it out and start looking at least six weeks before expiration date. Don’t sign another lease. Look for a month-to-month rental agreement. Make sure you have good credit, good references, don’t smoke or have pets. Good luck. Dear Donnie, My fiancé has mental illness in his family. Should I be concerned if we have children? SigneD, minDing-future-minDS

Dear minDing, Yes, this is serious. Find out what kind of mental illness. How many in his family have been affected? Have other children in his family shown signs? Some mental illness can be treated with proper medication. At what point in your relationship did your fiancé share this information? How important is it to you to have children or to your fiancé? You two need to have a heart-to-heart talk right away. Talk to your doctor and talk to other members of his family. Do not go forward with the marriage until all your questions are answered. This is a decision that will affect the rest of your life. Dear Donnie, Do you think we humans were meant to be monogamous? SigneD, monogamy-curiouS Dear monogamy, I think as humans became civilized they recognized that families were the best way to create a stable society and protect and provide for children. There have always been those without the discipline to remain faithful. Once divorce became legal and socially acceptable it harmed not only children but society. Today many marriages end in divorce. We have developed serial monogamy or one-mate-at-a-time partnerships. Some marriages tolerate infidelity for a variety of reasons, but these are rarely happy marriages. We are living longer now than ever before and one person cannot be expected to meet all the needs of another person forever. The best marriage partners are committed to the partnership. They work to help the other person reach their full potential and become the best they can be. It isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. Dear Donnie, My husband has stopped going to church. The church has always been the center of our social life and most of our friends are there. Actually, my faith is not as strong as it used to be and I think he Carpinteria students finish strong in Water CoastalView Wise video competition


The Santa Barbara County Water Agency announced the winners of the 19th Annual WaterWise High School Video Contest on May 7. In total, 41 students from nine county schools submitted 16 videos. Students were challenged to create 30-second videos centered on the theme, “Water Use Myths at Home and in the Garden.” While the Water Agency and water providers arrange for monetary prizes to the winning schools, local private sector sponsors provide awards for the students and teachers.

is full of doubt. How do I handle a crisis in faith? SigneD, church-no-more

Dear church, A crisis in faith happens to most people at some time. For many, the church is their social life, even more than their religious life. It becomes like an extended family and it is comfortable. Living up to Christian values all the time is challenging. The first thing I would do is ask your husband to help you understand what is going on with him. Share your own doubts. Really take the time to share with each other your religious beliefs and what you want out of this stage of your life. Next, make an appointment with your pastor and share your dilemma. The pastor is trained to handle a common problem like this. Maybe you both need a break from the habit of going to church, and to go and worship in the great outdoors. Dear Donnie, My parents have always promised that they would give us the down payment for a house. We are ready to buy now, but my parents confessed that they just helped my brother for the second time and can no longer help us. They even put a second mortgage on their home to give him the money. He lost his first home in foreclosure. Enough time has elapsed that he can get a mortgage on another home. I am so angry that they would do this and then not be able to help us as they promised. What can I do? SigneD, Show me the money Dear Show me, I’m sorry that they have let you down. Their first mistake was to make a promise to give you money if they didn’t have a lot extra. Their second mistake was to bank roll your brother twice. Their generosity exceeds their ability to live up to the promise they made to you. For your own peace of mind, get over it. It’s done and the money isn’t there. If you have saved a 10 percent down payment on a modest property, there are many ways to buy. Figure out how to buy on your own and maintain a loving relationship with your parents. Dear Donnie, I loaned a friend $400 about a year ago to get him out of a bind. He has made no attempt to pay me back. He has one hardluck story after another. What can I do? SigneD, But, he SaiD he’D pay me Back

Dear But, The healthiest thing you can do is to chalk it up to one of life’s lessons. Accept that the money is gone forever. Remember the saying, “Neither a borrower nor a lender be.” Loaning money to a friend often results in the loss of both the money and the friend. Some friends will consider the loan a legal and a moral obligation, others will look at your lifestyle and figure it is not that important. Next time be prepared to say, ”Sorry, can’t do it.” There is way too much drama around people who need to borrow money—keep your distance and your sanity. Dear Donnie, My husband just quit his corporate job with all the benefits and perks to go into real estate sales. He’s been doing this for about four months and hasn’t made any money. I have a rewarding job working in a local boutique, but I don’t make much money. One more month and we’ll be out of our savings. How can I convince him to get a job with a steady paycheck? SigneD, paycheck princeSS Dear paycheck, Did you two talk this over before he quit? Did he do any research into average income for new agents? Real estate is the easiest business to get into and the hardest one to make a living from. An agent needs at least six-months’ savings before entering the business, or a spouse with a good income. Most new agents count on friends and family to hand over their business, but sellers and buyers expect a level of experience and expertise not found in new agents. People don’t usually trust a rookie with such an important financial decision. There are over 1,200 agents locally and the top ten percent make most of the money. You and your husband need to have a serious discussion about his commitment to success in this business. He should meet with the broker of his office and ask for more help, maybe some form of internship and an honest evaluation of his chances for success. There are many expenses involved in real estate plus the necessary expense of seminars, conventions, books, tapes. This is a complex business requiring complete dedication to success, not just survival. Perhaps he needs a fallback job to see this through. Donnie Nair leads the Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Group and the annual Carpinteria Beautiful Home and Garden tour. Her column appears the third Thursday of the month. Questions are subject to editing, and not all will be answered.

To the backcountry with CVN

To celebrate Meredith Abbott’s 80th birthday, the entire Abbott family embarked on an adventure to Horseshoe Meadow in the San Rafael Wilderness last March. Graham Goodfield’s Los Padres Outfitters packed everyone into the campsite with his trusty mules and horses. An amazing time was had by all. Grown-ups and children played in the creek, painted, ate delicious food cooked up on the campfire by the Outfitters, and trekked or rode in to see the historic schoolhouse at the Manzana campground. Pictured at the trailhead are Hannah Goodfield, Darlah Goodfield, Robert Abbott, Graham Goodfield, Orion Abbott-Paige, David Paige, Wrenna Abbott-Paige, William Abbott, Meredith Abbott, Duncan Abbott, Murray McTigue, Agatha McTigue, Forrest McTigue, Whitney Abbott, Gweneth McTigue, Zinnia Abbott, Tessa van der Werff, Bea Abbott and Edie Abbott.

At eight-weeks-old, sick and weighing only one pound, Moe the kitty wandered homeless on the grounds of a local greenhouse. Fortunately, Dr. M. Scott Smith from the Animal Medical Clinic found him and nursed him back to health. A few months later, he was plump, healthy and ready for adoption, but by then Dr. Smith had fallen in love with him and decided to adopt Moe as the clinic’s official pet and mascot. His human coworkers and friends say Moe is an outgoing, fun and energetic little cat. “He loves visitors, so stop by and say hi!”
