Canalino Whales get the star treatment for selfies during the elementary school’s “month of motion” activities. From left, Madilena Adam, Dorian Stahl and Charley Stahl enjoy outdoor smiles at the ongoing fundraiser. Canalino’s month of motion, organized by the Parents for Canalino, focuses on giving kids more opportunities to play and exercise outside during the Covid-19 pandemic. So far, Canalino Whales have participated in a field day at Linden Field, rode roller skates and bikes in the Canalino parking lot and hiked up Franklin Trail. Next for the students is a trip to the Bluffs Nature Preserve and to check out the site of the future skateboard park. With two weeks left in the fundraiser, the school invites its students – and all kids and families – to get out and play! Read more on page 13.

Jehovah’s Witnesses spend year without knocking on doors

It’s been one year since Jehovah’s Witnesses adjusted their hallmark methods of sharing scriptures due to the pandemic. For many, the change from ringing doorbells and knocking on doors to making phone calls and writing letters expanded and invigorated their ministry. In March 2020, Witnesses in the U.S. suspended their door-to-door and face Carpinterians Eric and Tatum Pacheco have to-face forms of public been conducting virtual Bible studies during the ministry and moved pandemic. congregation meetings to videoconferencing. Eric and Tatum Pacheco of Carpinteria found the adjustments challenging at first, but the couple conducted virtual Bible study sessions with many whose time was limited prior to the pandemic.

Carpinteria Children’s Project receives $90,000 funding grant

The Carpinteria Children’s Project’s new $90,000 grant will be used to expand scholarship programs for children ages 2 to 5 years old and will allow the program to help with the loss of funding it experienced during the Covid-19 crisis. The $90,000 grant, donated by the Women’s Fund, will help the program return to its normal operations, after struggles with both funding and enrollment due to Covid-19 forced the program’s preschool to close for three months. After reopening in June 2020, the program is now beginning to prepare for fall. “We value the Women’s Fund as supporters of our mission, and we especially appreciate that the hundreds of members who make up the Women’s Fund prioritize organizations in Carpinteria along with organizations serving Santa Barbara and Goleta,” said Teresa Alvarez, interim executive director of the Carpinteria Children’s Project.

Top three finalists selected for Jr. Carpinterian of the Year

BY DEBRA HERRICK

In a year filled with the unexpected, one thing has been constant: the rigorous pursuit for excellence among Carpinteria’s most ambitious teenagers. Among this cohort of exceptional Carpinteria young people are three seniors, Laura Flores, Isa Alarcon and Luke Williams, who have been selected as finalists for Jr. Carpinterian of the Year, an honor bestowed annually to one graduating senior by the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce. Flores, Alarcon and Williams have excelled in academics, sports and civic engagement, and each will receive a scholarship from the chamber. The student named Jr. Carpinterian of the Year will receive a $4,000 scholarship and each of the two finalists will receive $1,500 scholarships. This year’s Jr. Carpinterian of the Year will be announced in a reception honoring the finalists with Congressman Salud Carbajal and Mayor Wade Nomura on Monday, May 24, at 4 p.m. on Linden Avenue at the beach. Finalists will also be honored at the 63rd annual Carpinteria Community Awards event on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Laura Flores

Ranked in the top 10% of her class, Laura Flores graduates Carpinteria High School this month with a 4.5 GPA and 25 units completed at Santa Barbara City College. Flores is from a tight-knit family of Mexican descent. Both of her parents immigrated from Mexico; her father began harvesting avocados in Carpinteria in the 1970s and her mother worked as a house cleaner. Flores, who will attend California Lutheran University in the fall, is the first in her family to attend college. She credits this achievement to the sacrifices her parents made for her. “I have taken it as my responsibility to not only make my parents proud but also myself,” Flores said. “I want to be an inspiration to younger cousins and siblings and demonstrate to them that they too are capable of pursuing education and succeeding.” Flores participated in the Eureka! college-bound program at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria. The five-year program, which incorporates STEM, advocacy and personal development, was instrumental in shaping Flores into a “powerful independent woman,” she said. She has also held the honor twice of emceeing the organization’s annual Women of Inspiration event. In completing over 200 hours of community service, Flores has volunteered at the Boys & Girls Club, Girls Inc., St. Joseph’s Church, Relay for Life, as a student poll worker, and as a co-founder and organizer for the Carpinteria chapter of Diversify Our Narrative (DON), a grassroots campaign led by youth focused on bringing diverse, anti-racist curriculum into classrooms. Drawn to DON because she didn’t see herself reflected in the literature she read at school, she said, Flores sought to advocate for more inclusive reading at Carpinteria schools. “I am advocating to see stories that appropriately and respectfully address other cultures and perspectives in our classrooms,” she said. “This way, our younger generations will have a better understanding of each other and will create an even stronger Carpinteria community.” At Carpinteria High School, Flores completed the Advancement Via Individual Determination college-bound program; Destination College Advising Corp; and served as president of Celebrating Adversity, Diversity and Education. Flores was also on the cheerleading team. Among her accolades, Flores has received the President’s Award for Academic Excellence and was selected for the California Scholarship Federation. At college, Flores said that she plans to major in English with the goal of pursuing a teaching credential.

Isa Alarcon

Raised by a single father since she was a young girl, Isa Alarcon has grown through adversity to become a rising star in Carpinteria. Earlier this year, she was awarded the prestigious Girls Inc. national scholarship and will soon graduate from Carpinteria High School in the top 10% of her class with a 4.5 GPA. Throughout high school, Alarcon has also stood out in sports and clubs, competing in Warriors soccer, cheer and track & field, and serving as vice president of Celebrating Adversity, Diversity and Education and senior class president of the Associated Student Body. Alarcon said that she is where she is today because of her decision to join the Eureka! program at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria. Through the five-year college-bound program, Alarcon was able to take classes at UCSB, intern for a county supervisor and advocate for issues she believes in at the capitol in Washington, D.C. Alarcon’s experience in community and civic engagement is formidable for a teenager. She has participated in Youth Making Change, Black Lives Matter protests, Democratic Party Lit Drop, CommUnify, Race for Justice and Child Safety Event. She has also served as a poll worker for the Santa Barbara County Elections Office and co-founded the Carpinteria chapter of the youth-led advocacy group, Diversify Our Narrative (DON). Speaking multiple times at school board meetings, Alarcon was a leader in the successful DON initiative to implement a multicultural literature class at Carpinteria High School. Her tight-knit family has also provided Alarcon with the support she needs to succeed. Her grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Chile to provide better opportunities for their children, she said. “Seeing their smiles and feeling the embraces of their hugs gives them and me the clarity that it was all worth it,” Alarcon said. “All of my long nights of studying and breakdowns are paying off with acceptance letters at multiple colleges. I am overwhelmed with joy, but know that I stem from a long line of independent hard workers and overachievers, who have made sacrifices to help me grow.” In the fall, Alarcon plans to study political science at Chapman University in Orange County with an eye on a career in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Luke Williams

After the debris flows of Jan. 9, 2018 damaged their Montecito home, Luke Williams and his family moved to Carpinteria. The experience changed Williams’ life and inspired him to work with a Stanford University professor to create a curriculum for teaching local middle school students about earth science, landslides and natural hazards. Williams will graduate this year as valedictorian of Bishop Garcia Diego High School. He is an AP Scholar; SB Athletic Roundtable Bishop Scholar Athlete; a recipient of the Bishop Diego Christian Service Award; and a member of the National Honors Society and the California Scholarship Federation. In addition to his academic prowess, Williams was on his school’s varsity track, soccer and tennis teams and a member of the STEAM society. He is an eagle scout with Boy Scouts of America and was selected for the National Youth Board for Teen Mental Health First Aid. Through his church, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and Catholic Charities, Williams has helped over 200 families receive school supplies and food during the pandemic. In total, Williams has completed over 1,000 hours of community service. His academic achievement and community involvement have led to prestigious honors, such as the Congressional Youth Certificate, the President’s Volunteer Service Award, the Pepperdine Youth Citizenship Award and the Dartmouth Alumni Book Club Award. A self-professed astrophile, Williams’ passions include studying space and geology. “I celebrated when phosphine was discovered on Venus,” he said. “I was thrilled by the fact that there might be Venusian life.” In his free time, he enjoys brain teasers, chess, Sudoku and Rubik’s cubes. In addition to space exploration, Williams is passionate about teen mental health, noting that it is important to destigmatize mental health issues. An op-ed he penned in support of mental health training in California schools was recently published in the Santa Barbara News-Press. “Whether I am in school, in our community or at my church, I try to have an impact,” Williams said. “I believe we can all make a difference in the world in a positive and productive way, and I hope that I can help create change.” Williams will attend Stanford University in the fall where he plans to major in geological sciences with the hopes of one day becoming an astronaut.

Make time for your partner CVN

COFFEE, CAREER AND KIDDOS T E R E S A A LVA R E Z Between making lunches for the kids, responding to emails at work, and paying bills at home, we try to find time to connect with our partner. The same partner who we fell in love with and were spontaneous and fun with. It’s hard to remember that when life is happening at 100 miles per hour. We’re exhausted and perhaps even stressed from the never-ending todo list. The last thing we feel like there’s time for is a date night. Spending time with a significant other is important, though, and we should make time for it. Date night doesn’t have to be dressing up and going to a fancy dinner or flying across the ocean to sip cocktails by the beach… although that sounds wonderful! Date night can be watching a show together and sharing a glass of wine after the kids have gone to sleep or meeting for coffee before your workday starts. The point is to make the effort to make time for the “us.” I have personally found that making time to do something with my husband without the kids around helps with connection and communication. It’s our time to chat about work, laugh at the past, and sometimes vent about how difficult, but equally joyful, parenting can be. We know that if we are okay, our kids will be okay. This is one way we make sure that happens. The Carpinteria Children’s Project (CCP) understands the importance of children having positive relationships around them. This includes the relationship between their parents or guardians. We know that when parents are struggling to get along, and although they may try to protect their children from disagreements,

“Date night doesn’t have to be dressing up and going to a fancy dinner or flying across the ocean to sip cocktails by the beach.” it takes a toll on family life. And no judgment here. Parenting requires hard work. Marriage requires hard work. For this reason, and because we are dedicated to helping parents be the best parents they can be, we have partnered with Family Service Agency to provide Healthy Relationships, a course for couples to attend together. This can serve as date night, an hour carved out of your day to spend connecting. Couples will also learn how to communicate with one another. Most of us have experience with how quickly a few words can turn into a hurtful comment, and the ability to turn that conversation back to positive can be done, but again, with hard work. Join us! A few of the CCP staff, myself included, are looking forward to it. See you there! To sign up for Healthy Relationships, contact (805) 566-1600. The current course is being offered in Spanish. A course in English will open up when there is enough interest to participate. Teresa Alvarez is the interim executive director of the Carpinteria Children’s Project. She has over a decade of experience in the nonprofit field and a passion for helping children and families. Teresa was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and moved to the U.S. with her parents at age two. Growing up as an undocumented student, she learned the importance of having mentors, a strong work ethic and the value of education. Teresa holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from UCSB and a master’s degree in Psychology from Antioch Santa Barbara. She currently serves on the First 5 Santa Barbara Commission, is the Board Chair for Future Leaders of America, and a founding member of the Santa Barbara Latino Giving Circle.

“As a community, I believe it is important for us to protect our surrounding agricultural lands. The proposed development runs contrary to this goal.”

––Jim Bailard

Keep Bailard property Beware of socialism If you follow daily news, you realize agricultural land that businesses are having post-pandem-

I am writing to express my opposition to the three story-tall, high-density housing project that has been proposed for the end of Bailard Avenue. This project would replace a successful organic farm with 173 apartment units on just seven acres of land. Its location would interfere with the operations of three avocado farms that abut the project site. Our family owns one of those farms. The proposed project is located within the urban and rural buffer zone that separates the Casitas Village condos to the south and prime agricultural lands to the north. This zone was created by Santa Barbara County planners to reduce potential conflicts between ongoing agricultural operations and nearby residents, thereby helping to preserve the long-time viability of local farms. The proposed project site is currently zoned for two residences, keeping with its buffer zone status. Allowing the project to go forward would increase the housing density by more than 80-fold. As a community, I believe it is important for us to protect our surrounding agricultural lands. The proposed development runs contrary to this goal. Let’s preserve what we love about Carpinteria Valley for future generations and let our elected officials know that we oppose this poorly conceived project.

ic startup problems because they can’t hire enough workers, many of whom are too content with government checks that have sustained them through tough times. Both the Biden and Newsom administrations will continue this support for at least the near future. Why work? Does “socialism“ enter your mind? It should! The idea of “government providing for all” is becoming popular due to the failure of our education system. I fear that young and gullible citizens are being influenced by left-leaning politicians such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. My hopes that Joe Biden would be a successful president are fading quickly as he seems to be engulfed with basically giving away money that our nation doesn’t have. Young adults and many older folks should be aware of these historical facts. First, 400 years ago, the Pilgrims’ attempt at socialism killed over half of the settlers in a distribute-everything-equally setup that resulted in starvation and death. Governor William Bradford switched to a capitalistic approach that yielded tremendous success. Second, Bernie Sanders’ state, Vermont, attempted to adopt socialist policies in 2011 and, recognizing its complete failure, abandoned them in 2014. Third, following World War II, Israel, India and the United Kingdom adopted socialist policies; it failed in all three countries. Fourth, the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 represent failures of socialism. And finally, 50 years ago, Venezuela had a strong and prosperous economy; it is now a socialistic disaster, as is our near neighbor Cuba. Words are limited here, but my appeal is for parents and grandparents to insist that our schools teach real history.

At the board’s April 27 regular meeting, the board voted to move forward with a marketing agreement for the property, the first of several steps required before the board can put the property on the market.

Summerland elementary school construction

The Measure U team had previously planned on attending the May 12 meeting of the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission to discuss the required development permit for the Summerland School construction, but Rigby said the meeting attendance has been postponed until June 9. She said there have been “subsequent letters’’ sent to the commission asking it to reconsider a previously submitted

staff report regarding the project. However, Rigby said that the postponement wouldn’t affect the overall timeline of the Summerland School construction. “We won’t get the final okay from DSA until the middle of July, so we can’t begin the project until the middle of July. So we are on-time, but we need to proceed with the Planning Commission in a way in which we can all satisfy the requirements for the coastal development permit,” Rigby said.

Donations

The board approved two donations during its regular meeting: a $2,500 new ice machine from the Carpinteria Little League to the CHS ASB Athletics Sports Medicine class, and a $325 donation from Matthew Endow of boys tennis sweatshirts to the CHS boys tennis team. “(We) thank the Endows for their continual support of all the athletics programs,” board member Andy Sheaffer said.

William “Randy” Akens 11/14/1946 – 5/12/2021

William “Randy” Akens passed away on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, after a long, courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife, Linda; his son, Trent, and wife, Thida; his daughter, Shelly, and her husband, Kimani; his granddaughters, Kayalin, Klio and Everest; his niece, Meghan Posch-Povey, and husband, Marc, along with their daughters, Ella and Scarlett. He is also survived by many relatives in Summerland, Cleveland, Ohio, and Nashville, Tennessee. Randy was a graduate of Carpinteria High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in music at California State University East Bay in Hayward. He also was a Navy veteran having served four years in the Vietnam War. He worked many years in local water districts, with his last 27 years as general manager at El Capitan Mutual Water Company where he was known to ride through the rolling hills on his ATV with his chocolate lab, Latti. Randy’s true passion and callings were as a musician and artist. He played the saxophone and flute for many bands which graced the stages of the Bay Area and Santa Barbara over the years. He also played the guitar and other instruments, which he taught to his family. He was known to start a jam session for any occasion. He was a thoughtful and creative man whose drawings and paintings reflected the beauty of the world as he saw it, and were a way for him to share his love with those most important to him. He is loved by many and will be deeply missed, always. A Graveside Celebration of Life will be held at the Carpinteria Cemetery on Saturday, May 22, at 12:30 p.m.

Iris Maya Eleniak Arnold 11/17/1945 – 2/15/2021

Iris Maya Eleniak Arnold was a lover of life who smiled from the inside-out and lit up every corner of her world. We said goodbye to this shining light on Feb. 15, 2021 due to an unexpected illness, in Carpinteria, California, her favorite place to be. She took her last breath, holding the hand of William Arnold, the love of her life. Iris had three children and one grandchild, her “red-headed fox,” who will forever miss her physical presence but will continue to call upon her as the best friend that she was and will always be. Iris was a real estate and executive

property manager, but most of all, she was a caregiver to her own mother, Irina, her brother, Michael, loving husband, Bill, her children, grandchild and every friend she had. That is who Iris was during her time on this earth – a loving, generous, wickedly funny, lover of life and (not unknown to a bit of mischief making now and then). Those she loved, she loved fiercely. She loved gardening in the sea breeze and sunshine. She loved reading, playing games and the clouds. Most of all, she loved to laugh. And this is how we will forever see you, mom. Free as a bird, laughing. Your smile will light up the sky and our hearts, eternally. We ask that in lieu of flowers, please make a memorial donation in Iris’ name to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, stjude. org. Arrangements have been entrusted to McDermott-Crockett Mortuary.

William F. Chamlee 7/23/1938 – 5/8/2021

William Frederick Chamlee, 82, died of cancer on May 8, 2021, at the home he built in Toro Canyon, Santa Barbara, California. He is preceded in death by his parents Harold (Duke) Chamlee and Alice Reily Chamlee Lape, his older sister Patricia, who died at birth, and his wife of 50 years, Adelle Newton Chamlee. Bill was born in Eureka, California in 1938 where he learned to fish and shoot. Living in Paradise Camp he grew to love the mountains and rivers, and later, living on a sheep ranch in Ukiah, he learned to hunt deer. His hunting and trapping skills through the years provided food for his family and gave him time to be in nature. Bill was a Boy Scout, a member of the Santa Barbara Blue Fins Diving Club (before wetsuits were invented) and he enlisted in the Navy through the Naval Reserves program. After graduating from Santa Barbara High School in 1956, he was called up to active duty, and was stationed at the U. S. Naval Station Subic Bay in the Philippines. His wife Adelle joined him after the birth of their first son, David; and their son, Robert, was born there. After the Navy, Bill worked at his grandfather’s shop, CD Reily Machine Works as a welder with Union 509 for five years. Then, for 20 years, he worked in Local 433 as a field ironworker doing structural steel, welding, ornamental iron and boiler work. On the side, he had a business as a gunsmith. In 1981, Bill started his own business: Certified Welding Services, later named CWS Inspections, offering certified inspection for welding, structural steel, reinforced concrete, post tensioned concrete and structural masonry in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Though Bill retired in 2000, he continued to work part time through 2020. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Bill served as a youth leader, primary teacher and a Los Angeles Temple ordinance worker. He also served in the Carpinteria Ward bishopric for five years. With his wife Adelle, he served a

Spanish-speaking mission in Concepción, Chile from 1989 to 1991, and a mission reconstructing the Santiago Chile LDS Temple from 2004 to 2005. As a Boy Scout and Explorer leader in Santa Ynez, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria, Bill took the boys on adventures that included snorkeling in Baja California, boat trips to the Channel Islands and hiking in the Sierras. (He even hiked on crutches once.) Over his 82 years, Bill had a wide variety of pets (his peacocks still roam the canyon) and always had an aquarium of fish. Bill built his own Spanish style home in Toro Canyon among the oak trees, adding tropical gardens, iron railings, concrete pathways, a fishpond, swings, rock walls, tortoise pens and his eagle-topped flagpole. He always had a project. He planted palm trees wherever he lived. Many are now over 100’ tall. Bill was a past president of the California Tortoise and Turtle Club. He enjoyed meeting new people and welcomed everyone to his house, including foreign exchange students and friends from many backgrounds and cultures. He loved sharing meals and experiences and his testimony of Jesus Christ. Bill is survived by his wife of five years, Ninfa Mirambel Chamlee, who lovingly cared for him to the end; his sisters, Virginia Cooper (Allen) and Kathleen Ealand-Williams (Norman) of Santa Ynez; his children, David (Maria), Bob (Danielle), Patty (Karl) Buchmiller and Dan (Laurie), all of Santa Barbara County, and April (Bob) Martell of Portland, Oregon. He was very proud of his 21 Chamlee grandchildren: David (Catarina), Peter, Shawn, Sequoia, Daniel (Stephanie), Jamie (Jeremy) Lehl, Thomas (Heather), Stacy (Larry) Jacobsen, Whitney (Nathan) Saito, Valerie, Ben (Dana), Sam (Lizzie), Michael (Karen), Brian, Naomi Buchmiller, Katie (Kenneth) Dunn, Linda (Craig) Nichols, Cathrine (Austin) Vach, Annette (Mark) Thueson, Charlotte (Joseph) Andrews and Thomas (Grace) Martell; and his 32 great–grandchildren (with two on the way). To view the funeral service via Zoom, contact a family member for the link and password. The funeral will be held at the Carpinteria LDS Church, 1501 Linden Ave., Carpinteria on May 20, 2021 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with visitation from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. William will be interred at the Santa Barbara Cemetery as were three generations of his ancestors before him.

Donna M. McCormick 3/20/1932 – 3/13/2021

Donna M. McCormick passed away on March 13, 2021. She was born in Crosby, Minnesota on March 20, 1932. When she was 19 years old, Donna moved to San Francisco to work for the FBI and there she met Jerry McCormick in 1952. Jerry left to go to the war in Korea for one year, returned to San Francisco in 1953, and married Donna. Together they moved to southern California where they raised their family. Donna also worked later as an insurance agent when the kids

were in high school. She is survived by her son, Patrick, and his wife, Vanessa; their children, Jesiah, Danielle and Ashely; her daughter, Sheryl, and her husband, Robert Rhoades, their children Dani and Travis; as well as many nieces, nephews, great-grandchildren, loving friends and her doggie, Daisy. Donna enjoyed spending time with family and friends, motorhoming and swimming. The funeral service will be at Riverside National Cemetery at 22495 Van Buren Boulevard in Riverside, California on Wednesday, May 26, at 11 a.m.

Bonnie Wagner 4/20/1932 – 5/15/2021

Bonnie Wagner was born April 20, 1932 in Toledo, Ohio, to Ruby and Wallace “Slim” Daniel. She passed away on May 15, 2021, after struggling for nine months with several health issues. Bonnie grew up in Ohio and one of her favorite memories was visiting her Aunt and Uncle on their farm. She moved to California in 1943 and to Carpinteria in 1962, where she lived in the same house on La Manida until her death. Bonnie was an active member of Carpinteria Community Church, serving multiple times as a deacon, and a teacher for Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. She put her talent to work with Crafty Ladies, sewing and knitting everything from prayer shawls to potholders. Bonnie loved to garden, and always had a small garden in her backyard, even if it was only tomatoes and cucumbers. She lovingly tended to more than 20 orchids, some of which she inherited after the death of her sister. She had a beautiful rose garden. She always had a dog, running agility and weight pull, and trained several therapy dogs. She volunteered at Cottage Hospital and coordinated the Pet Therapy program there for several years. Her first job was with the IRS, and she held a number of office jobs after that. She went back to school when she was 44, eventually graduating from California Lutheran University with a master’s degree in Special Education. She was a resource specialist for the Oxnard School District for 14 years. Bonnie is survived by her children, Paul (Michelle), Ruth (Neal), Mary (Steven) and Mark, as well as six grandchildren (Kathryn, Jessica, Emily, Joseph, Freddie and Tom), nieces and nephews, and her faithful companion, Willow. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, May 20, at 11 a.m. at Carpinteria Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Bonnie requests donations be made to Carpinteria Community Church.

Sheriff’s co-response teams focus on mental health

FOCUS ON MENTAL HEALTH: In this four-week series acknowledging the month of May as Mental Health Awareness Month, HopeNet will be contributing different perspectives each week on mental health and community resources.

Aging with support and self-acceptance BY DEBORAH SMILOVITZ FOSTER

Often in my practice, I listen to patients talk about what they don’t want. One simple way to make it through challenging times is to avoid focusing on what we don’t want and instead, to try and concentrate on what we do want. Bringing intentionality into our everyday practices can dramatically shift or help shape how we feel about our lives. Intentionality basics include taking time for breathing and gratitude. We sometimes hold our breath when we are under stress and this can increase stress and anxiety. Being grateful for simple things like our breath, heartbeat and senses can provide ways to move through the ups and downs of life. Our adult life is filled with stress for financial survival and family changes, such as marriage, divorce, death and birth. For many, this stems from what the psychologist Erik Erikson called, the “mid-life crisis,” when we realize we have less time left to live than we have already lived. Adulthood takes many twists and turns as we begin to question our lives and how we have or haven’t fulfilled our dreams and goals. These time periods can cause mental health issues to build up and impact our well-being in big ways. Some ideas of how we can learn to cope or build skills toward greater selfcare include checking in with ourselves on a regular basis. Pick a time frame, for example, the first day of the week, to briefly have an honest conversation with yourself about how you are feeling. If you are unsure how you are feeling, speak to a therapist or attend a support group. Our community has great resources to process loss. Grief comes in many forms. It could be from the loss of a loved one,

“Taking care of yourself isn’t selfish, it’s self-care.” but it could also be from the loss of a job or relationship. Aging lends itself to cause grief as well. Hospice can help with processing grief, especially around a loved one’s death or illness. As we get older, we begin to lose our abilities – physical, mental and, often, financial – and self-acceptance is also needed. Finding a routine of exercise, eating healthy, drinking plenty of water and creating a social network can be beneficial. Start out small with simple expectations. If you sense something is off, don’t ignore these messages, even if the feelings subside briefly. Speak to a health professional. Address uncomfortable thoughts or feelings, these do not evaporate and are calling out for attention. Seek support from a variety of places including Family Service Agency, New Beginnings and County Mental Health which provide resources for free, at a low cost or on a sliding scale. Self-care isn’t just for you. Taking care of your mental health needs might help you to be more present with children, colleagues and other people you encounter. Turn to nature to refresh and replenish, talk to loved ones, explore new options, drive to a new place or try a new food. Taking care of yourself isn’t selfish, it’s self-care. Deborah Smilovitz Foster, PhD, has a private clinical practice and serves on the board of HopeNet of Carpinteria.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s office is publicizing its co-response teams during Mental Health Awareness Month, which respond to mental health crises within the county. The co-response teams, created in February 2020, are a collaborative effort between the Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Behavioral Wellness, according to Raquel Zick, Sheriff’s Office spokesperson. The Sheriff’s Office currently operates with three fulltime co-response teams, each with one deputy and one licensed clinician that “respond out in the field with the intent to de-escalate people in crises,” Zick said in a press release. Co-response teams help to divert people experiencing mental health crises away from jail and conduct follow-ups. “I am proud of all of the work our co-response teams are doing. They are dedicated to serving our most vulnerable community members and are passionate and effective,” Dr. Cherylynn Lee, Behavioral Sciences Unit manager, said. “No one has a magic wand – but these teams work magic every day and it’s my honor and pleasure to have a hand in their success.” Zick said each member of the co-response team undergoes 40-hour crisis

Co-response teams help to divert people experiencing mental health crises away from jail and conduct follow-ups.

intervention training, and work under Dr. Lee’s guidance. “The co-response teams are chosen through a competitive internal process. When the positions become available, both deputies and clinicians who are interested in the opportunity to be on the team must submit a letter of interest,” Zick said. “Interviews are conducted and included community members and department members.” Zick said the Sheriff’s Office received 2,984 mental health crises during 2020; of those, 1,606 were handled by a co-response team, and fewer than 15 of those ended with a community member being taken to jail. For 2021, the co-response teams handled 145 calls in January; 84 in February; 105 in March; and 143 in April.

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery? High Adult Count

178

Pup Count

KARLSSON

Some pups are still nursing, but as most are now quite large all are included in the adult count.

Natural History Notes

Harbor seals, while clumsy on land, are graceful, adept swimmers well suited to hunting even in dark water. Their eyes gather any light efficiently, and their extremely sensitive “whiskers” (vibrissae) enable them to track the wake left by fish even when blind. Harbor seals have been recorded diving to 2,078 feet, though most of their time is spent in shallow water. They can stay underwater as long as 30 minutes, but most dives are just a few minutes.

Disturbances

At least one jogger went into the sanctuary, passing within feet of the large closure sign early Sunday morning. Harbor seals need to rest on land about 50% of the time, and they have selected very few areas to rest. When disturbed, the nearest sanctuaries are the rocks at the State Park or Point Mugu Naval Base. The federal Marine Mammal Protection Act imposes heavy penalties for any action that disturbs their natural behavior, which includes frightening them into the sea. The seals inhabit Carpinteria’s shore and waters year-round. Visitors are encouraged to consider using the bluff top trail rather than walking on their section of beach, when it is open to the public.

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. Volunteers needed. Call (805) 684-2247 or email carpsealwatch@gmail.com. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.

Caroline Alarcon shines in volunteering efforts CVN

“I feel as a small business owner and as a woman and as a Latina, participating in these organizations gives me a voice that I didn’t think I would be able to have before.”

MISSION POSSIBLE LAUREN GRAF Volunteering trailblazer Caroline Alarcon is no stranger to setting her own path. Not only is she the founder of the Latina Professional Alliance, but she also organized the Child Safety Event, a free children’s safety program in 2016 and 2017. She also served as the 2018 chairwoman of the board for the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce, as well as on the board of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria. In addition to her activities as a volunteer, she runs her own business. Alarcon’s family moved from Alaska to California when she was in middle school, eventually settling in Carpinteria. In 2015, Alarcon opened her business Reliant Notary alongside Alarcon Legal, her sister Marisol’s immigration law office. Before that, for over a decade, Alarcon worked as a volunteer coordinator and recorder for the blind and dyslexic, and later as a clerical advisor for the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department. “I feel as a small business owner and as a woman and as a Latina, participating in these organizations gives me a voice that I didn’t think I would be able to have before,” Alarcon said. Are there any experiences with volunteer programs or organizations that have stuck with you? I have been part of the Chamber of Commerce board of directors, and I think that being a small business owner and meeting these other business owners opened so many doors – and not just for business, but for community. For example, the whole reason we were able to do the Child Safety Event was because we had this opportunity to meet city manager Dave Durflinger at one of the chamber

––Caroline Alarcon

mixers. We talked about what we had in mind, and he instantly was like, “Well, let’s partner.” It opened a whole bunch of doors for us to do the event. I also think being a part of the board for Girls Inc. has been amazing. I am a little biased because my niece is part of Eureka! and she’s graduating this year, and I think she’s phenomenal. I’ve seen everything Girls Inc. has done for her, and I think the organization is so inspiring. It gives these girls opportunities for things they had never imagined for themselves, and that’s something that I want to be a part of. How did the Child Safety Event come about? One of the big things my sister, Marisol, and I talked about early on with our businesses was what we wanted out of being business owners. We decided that what we really wanted was to make a difference in the community, particularly when it comes to kids. Anything that had to do with kids was important because family is the most important thing to us. We have a large family with a brother, sisters, our parents and lots of nieces and nephews. It takes a village to raise a child, and we’re like a mini village. We do a lot

to support each other and help take care of each other. So, in 2016, we created the Child Safety Event for Carpinteria. We partnered with the city, and we had the fire district and Sheriff’s department there. We had Mimi Audelo (from the city of Carpinteria) with emergency preparedness kits, and I was able to provide kids with photo IDs with thumbprints and identification. Is there anyone in your life who inspired you to volunteer? My parents brought us up to think not just about ourselves, but each other, and to not just fight for our own path but to leave the door open for people behind us as well. My mom grew up in Chile, and she was a mountain climber, and that was amazing for those times. My dad decided that he wanted to move to the U.S. without speaking any English, become a U.S. citizen and have his family here. They like to blaze a path, and they’re not afraid of it. I think they’ve taught us all to do that, but their main message was that you have to take people with you. What inspired you to organize the Latina Professional Alliance? It started out as a leading group for professional Latina women, because one of the things we saw was a need for a space where women could form professional relationships without feeling overshadowed. And then it became something completely different, because once we started talking about it and more people joined, it became more than just networking. We would ask how we could support each other to build these professional

relationships in an environment that’s not just swapping business cards, but more like, “Let me get to know you, and you get to know me. This is my business, and you can trust me.” During the pandemic, everything is done over Zoom, but we have still done some amazing things. Final thoughts: Being as small as Carpinteria is, there are all these places you can volunteer where you can help your community be better and do better. And if you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can create it, because there are always people out there looking to volunteer. That’s what I love most about Carpinteria. It feels like people are taking care of each other when there is a need.

Carpinteria Kids Auction, community comes together raising over $100k for kids PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

The United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County (UBGC) celebrated another successful fundraiser on Saturday, raising $119,146 at the annual Carpinteria Kids Auction. This year’s event featured an online silent auction and a smaller in-person gala with 102 attendees. A highlight of the event was the cake auction which showcased decadently crafted desserts from The Food Liaison, Zookers Restaurant, Lorena Estrada, Andersen’s Bakery and the famous coconut cake from Jane’s. “It was so nice to see people in person again. This event normally brings together about 350 attendees and this year, due to Covid-19, we were only able

to have about a third of that size and we still exceeded our normal dollar amount raised,” Michael Baker, CEO of UBGC, said. “That was possible because the Carpinteria community always comes out and supports us incredibly well.” The money raised will go toward UBGC’s food program, as well as membership fees, summer camps, sports clinics and athletic program fees. The UBGC food program provides free hot and cold meals and nutrition and gardening classes to kids enrolled in the organization’s afterschool, camp and summer programs. Countywide, across the organization’s clubs, roughly 85% of members qualify for free or reduced school meals.

SCHOOL NOTES Five Carpinteria students awarded Memory Master title

Five students of Classical Conversations Carpinteria, a homeschooling program, have achieved the highest honor in the program: Memory Master. Students Summer Kearin, Selah Jensen, Beau Chadwick, Abby Gobbell and Ashton Nystrom have all “successfully demonstrated 100% mastery of the memory work” for the 2020-2021 school year, Hedy Nystrom, director of foundations and essential programs at Classical Conversations Carpinteria, said. This is Kearin’s third year winning the title of Memory Master. She was also awarded the Triple Crown Memory Master Award. “In a year in which many students and families have been tempted to ‘throw in their hats’ and settle for just getting through this academic year, some have held on, or have chosen to pick up their ‘hat’ again and again, and in the end, they have received a crown,” Nystrom said. In order to win the honor, each student had to recite several previously memorized facts or pieces of information, which included 161 events and people; 24 sentences focused on U.S. history; the U.S. Constitution preamble; the Bill of Rights; the names of the 46 U.S. presidents; 120 geographical features and locations in North America; the first 12 elements of the periodic table; and parts of the eight body systems, along with several additional pieces of information about Latin and math.

Canalino School celebrates “month in motion”

Carpinteria’s Canalino Family School is celebrating its biggest fundraiser this month, encouraging students to get out and play in a “month of motion.” After the school’s annual jog-a-thon was canceled because of Covid-19, Parents for Canalino planned a “month of motion” for students, introducing a different way for kids to play outside each week. The fundraiser, which has two weeks left, has involved the Canalino Whales participating in a field day at Linden Field, riding roller skates and bikes in the Canalino parking lot, and hiking at Franklin Trail. This week, Canalino students will take a trip to the Carpinteria Bluffs trail to check out the site of the future skatepark. “It has been heartwarming to see families enjoying our beautiful outdoor spaces together in support of our school community. The smiling eyes of our students say it all,” Canalino parent Kim Runhaar said.

FLA’s Youth Leadership Conference is held annually and focuses on helping students build on their leadership skills.

Carpinteria FFA program director Sal Lopez has been named a Star Advisor among California’s FFA teachers.

FFA teacher named Star Advisor

BY DEBRA HERRICK

Every year, a handful of faculty leaders in Future Farmers of America (FFA) programs across California are recognized as Star Advisors by the organization. Carpinteria High School’s Sal Lopez was recently chosen from over 400 agriculture teachers statewide for this honor, which he shares with four other teachers from the South Coast Region. The recognition is awarded by nomination. Lopez was nominated by community members, students and other ag teachers in the region. However, he was surprised to learn that he’d been named, he said, noting, “there are so many other agriculture teachers that I look up to, such as my very own coworker Noe Gomez.” To learn about what makes Lopez stand out as an FFA mentor and teacher, we asked him to tell us more about himself and his work in the program. What does it mean to you to be a Star Advisor? A Star Advisor is an FFA teacher who goes above and beyond for their students and their FFA program. A Star Advisor is a teacher who truly values their students’ high school agriculture educational experience. What do you do that makes you stand out? I think my passion and drive for my students is what made me stand out from other agriculture teachers. Perhaps my peers saw that in me, so I appreciate that I was elected Star FFA Advisor. What are you most proud of in your work at FFA? I am most proud of the growth and opportunities that my students get to have through my classes. My favorite thing is witnessing my students start from not knowing what kind of skills and knowledge they have, and they walk out of my class being skillful welders, farmers, vet

techs and leaders. This is possible through the opportunities that our students at Carpinteria High School receive through being part of the FFA program. Tell us about a powerful experience working with a student or students during Covid-19 in the FFA program? What has the FFA program meant to students during this difficult time? During Covid and distance learning, I vowed to never allow my class to become a boring class. I made it my goal to ensure my classes were as engaging as possible. This also meant creating online FFA activities for our students to participate in so that they weren’t bored while quarantined in their homes. Now that our students are back in person, I am doing everything in my ability to make coming to school in person worthwhile. Today, our students are once again welding in the shop, and we have 18 students raising animals at our school farm. Our students had a lot of patience and humility during quarantine, and now they are fully involved in what we’ve been working so hard social distancing and wearing masks for. What are you looking forward to for the FFA program in the near future? I am looking forward to our 18 students competing at the 805 Ag Kids Livestock Show (Aug. 11-13). Although the Ventura County Fair is canceled this summer, our students will still compete at a Livestock show at the fairgrounds this summer. The students have been waiting what feels like forever for this moment. What’s on your wish list for the FFA program? What does the program really need that it doesn’t have a budget for right now? A mini front-loader tractor would be pretty sweet so that our students can fully utilize our field for agricultural operations.

Teen Poetry Winner

Child Poetry Winner POPPIES By Orly Espinoza, age 8 Orange and beautiful standing open to the sun. Their petals dance in the light. At the end of the day they close their petals and say good night.

There is a place of naught In the dry valley Where the air smells of rot; Where the lepers flee. Father told me that It’s no place for me But I look down there at That old leper-tree. There’s a pulpy amber drum, Red, That seems to glare at us from The leper trail’s end. It sloughs from the Old and scaly bark, And when it stares back at me I see countless darkened hearts.

Adult Poetry Winner What Falls Away By Christina Gessler Don’t ask me to explain Passover or Easter or Ramadan; or how George Floyd’s family will ever forgive anyone. Don’t ask me how broken bones knit back together; or why a caterpillar melts into a goopy soup then emerges from the cocoon a butterfly; or what is holy. Give these questions to the scientists and scholars and those with vast vocabularies and faith. Give me, instead, a course in ordinary miracles: A flock of birds in the neighbor’s tree to awake the morning darkness with wordless hymns of dawn; And breath after breath filling and leaving my lungs, effortlessly. Then let me witness the moment the butterfly’s wings finish drying, before they stretch full length and attempt flying. After I learn to trust in these small things, Let me sleep through a dreamless night; Let me praise ordinary mysteries—pens with ink; the simple spelling of j-o-y and l-o-v-e; Let me start at the beginning, again, with hands open and able to carry these wishes and hopes without worry for what slips though my fingers like sand. I’ll leave them where they fall because this is the only miracle I know: You do not have to carry it all.

CHS alumni Tracy Peterson’s new book focuses on a first grader with dyslexia.

Local author introduces children’s book about dyslexia

Carpinteria High School alumni Tracy Peterson, class of 1979, has introduced her new children’s book: “Cartwheels,” the story of a young child who has dyslexia. Peterson said the book is based on a student she taught two years ago, who had been diagnosed with dyslexia. Peterson has 36 years of teaching under her belt, and currently works as a first-grade teacher at Episcopal Collegiate School in Little Rock, Arkansas. “(The book) was born when (my student) would ‘buy’ time to eat lunch in the classroom when she was in first grade and we would talk and joke and laugh,” Peterson said. “I started playing with her story. I worked on it on the beach on vacation, in airports when I was traveling to visit my kids, and here and there on the weekends.” “Cartwheels,” which was released on March 9, is illustrated by Lindsey Witting. To date, the book has sold over 2,500 copies, Peterson said. She dropped by Carpinteria last week to share the book with Carpinteria students, providing one copy to all the first-grade teachers in the district. Peterson’s next project, she said, will focus on a first grader with alopecia, and will be titled “Ball Caps, Beanies, and Being Bald.”

CVN visits the Magic Kingdom

The Whittenton and Slawson/Garay families visited Disneyland for two days recently, visiting both Disneyland Park and California Adventure. Disneyland is only open to California residents at this time and is limited to 25% capacity, so the families were delighted by short wait times for rides. “We went on everything and there was plenty of space,” Kris Whittenton said. “On the first day, we walked over 10 miles.”

When we started receiving flats of fresh, Carpinteria grown, organic blueberries, I knew I needed to share a delicious blueberry recipe with you all. Come to find out the berries were coming from Occhipinti Farm, which happens to be a ranch neighboring the one I live on in Carpinteria’s foothills. Occhipinti Farm’s berries are some of the best blueberries I’ve ever tasted. They are crunchy yet super juicy, and are just the right amount of sweet and tart. The berries stay fresh for a long time, making them a convenient ingredient. When I’m not baking with these scrumptious berries, I like to throw them into an arugula salad, enjoy them with oatmeal or cereal, or even make a savory sweet sauce to pair with pork. It was hard to decide what blueberry dessert to share since there are so many wonderful recipes. Blueberry muffins, scones and pies all crossed my mind, but this month, I decided to share a comforting cobbler, because really: who can resist a warm, delicious, perfectly crunchy, yet ooey gooey berry dessert? This dessert is a quick and easy recipe. As with most warm fruity desserts, it is

best served a la mode with vanilla ice cream, especially in the summer. Feel free to substitute any berry or stone fruit for the blueberries. You can purchase the Occhipinti Farms blueberries from the Farm Cart in Carpinteria or the Farmers Market in Goleta. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a pack, I promise you will taste just how specials these plump gems are.

Welding for art’s sake CVN

MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N When most people think of art, drawing and painting comes to mind. But for Carpinterian artist Ally James – a current art student at UCLA – art comes in the form of metal-welding, the practice of using wire to fuse together pieces of metal. “People look at welding as an industrial fabrication and not as a form of art,” James said. “That is crazy to me, because there is so much you can do with the material. It’s something people haven’t seen before, or they haven’t considered the possibilities of the material like they would with another medium.” Before taking Professor Armando Ramos’ 3D-design class at Santa Barbara City College, James didn’t know that metal-welding would come to be her modus operandi. But five years later, it’s all she can focus on. “I never thought welding would be my thing,” James said. “People get super intimidated since it’s dangerous, but I think it’s the most forgiving material out of any medium I’ve ever worked with. If you make a wrong cut, just fuse it back together or bend it. It’s a very free material to work with once you get going with it.” In addition to being her mentor, Ramos has remained James’ close friend; in exchange for teaching his kids how to surf, Ramos allows James to use his welder. “I’m so thankful for him,” James said. Prior to welding, James worked with functional fabrication practices like furniture, wood and pottery. But welding helped her realize she could be an artist without having to paint or draw. “It’s been a really freeing experience,” James said. “It’s been an amazing outlet in my personal life (…) Metal is not only forgiving, but the possibilities are so endless. Metal can be functional or decorative. It’s a really interesting way to (make) an industrial look with a delicate and professional finish.” James has also started her own metal fabrication business, building signs that may look familiar to many Carpinterian locals. “My metal welding business started off in the Carpinteria pop-up markets,” James recalled. “I made signs (for) the different beaches in Carpinteria and made a last-minute decision to sell them. I had no idea I would have any success, but I sold out that first day.” “I love every step of making these smaller, decorative pieces that (remind

Ally James’ welding business started in the Carpinteria pop-up markets.

Among the artistic creations that James creates by welding are pendants and Carpinteria-inspired signs.

“Metal is not only forgiving, but the possibilities are so endless. Metal can be functional or decorative. It’s a really interesting way to (make) an industrial look with a delicate and professional finish.” people) of the town they visited or live in,” she added. Despite her love for making smaller pieces, James has larger aspirations for her future projects. She is currently saving up to buy her own welding equipment and is hoping to focus on large scale works for local restaurants and homes in the future. “I want to give the community things that will make bigger statements and

have a very Carpinteria industrial feel to them,” James said. “(I want to focus on) work that allows people to recognize the community and (remind them) of how special it is to be a local in this town.” James’ future plans also include helping other potential artists pursue their education and find their crafts. “I’m about to graduate. My whole point with my education has been to bring art to the community and open doors for students to (help them) realize there is more to do with art than painting and drawing,” James said. “I hope to go into teaching and make a difference in that way.” Over the last year, James also began to shift her focus towards environmental justice. Her work embodies the persistence of nature, as well as alternative post-apocalyptic and prehistoric animals. She also works with the concept of home in her documented photos about imposed

identity and scaffolding, focusing on home being a place where you reside in your head and heart. “If you look up the definition of ‘home,’ it doesn’t say a physical place,” James said. “(Home) is a place where a person constantly resides – and your head is the only place where that is possible.” James’s next big project is a Covid-19 memorial funded by the city of Santa Barbara with other Santa Barbara City College alumni working under Professor Ramos. The group is currently scouting locations and plan to install the memorial around late August. “We want to make something that includes everyone that’s been affected (by Covid-19),” James said. “I have in mind an installation that will make you visually lock eyes with another person. It’s been important for us to address how disproportionately people have been affected by the pandemic. We still have to figure out how to address it visually, but that is important to all of us.” To find out more about James’ work or to commission a piece, visit her Instagram page @intense.seal. Brenda Tan is a columnist and a freelance writer. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in English, Writing and Literature, and Art History with an emphasis in Museum Studies at UCSB.

Warriors beat Cardinals in baseball season finale PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

The Carpinteria Warriors visited the Santa Paula Cardinals in the season finale between the two and the Warriors ran away with a 14-4 win. The Warriors scored one point in the first inning only to see the lead evaporate immediately as the Cards tallied four points. Senior right hander Issac Castillo and the Warrior defense settled in and blanked the potent Santa Paula offense the rest of the way. The Warriors closed the gap when they scored two points in the fourth inning and then took the lead for good when they scored four more points in the sixth. The route was on in the seventh as Carpinteria batted around and tallied seven more runs in the final frame. Castillo and catcher Diego Nieves kept the Cardinals off balance as they scattered

six hits, walked one and struck out four in the complete game effort. The Warriors committed an error but pounded out 13 hits and pressured the Cardinals into three miscues. Erich Goebel was a standout with three hits (including a double and a triple), four RBI and scoring two. Luke Lounsbury had a pair of hits, a pair of RBI and scored a pair of runs. Castillo helped his own cause by collecting two hits, an RBI and scoring two. Matt Muñoz was the Warriors fourth multi-hit player as he rapped two singles, had an RBI and scored two. “It was great to see our fortune turn a bit today,” Warriors athletic director Patrick Cooney said, “We had hit some balls hard for outs recently but today they fell in. We

maintained a workmanlike approach to the whole game and made our own good luck. We can’t say enough about the battery and how Issac’s senior leadership set the tone. It’s late in the season but the players are still committed to

learning and improving. We took a step forward today.” The win put Carpinteria percentage points ahead of Santa Paula in the Citrus Coast League standings landing them in second place.

Six Carpinteria boys tennis players travelled to Nordhoff High School in Ojai to play against Nordhoff and their own Carpinteria teammates in a Citrus Coast League Tournament. Only the two schools, Carpinteria High School and Nordhoff, entered the tournament this year. In the doubles finals, Carpinteria’s Mathew Endow/ Connor Gralewski beat their teammates Ian Thomas/Zaiden Juarez in 6-0, 6-1 sets. In singles, Austin Stone and Max Stone were seeded #1 and #2 respectively. In the finals, junior Austin ended up beating his younger freshman brother Max in “a fun, good natured yet highly skilled and competitive match,” said Bryants. “Both players are so talented and are best friends and they both were highly complimentary of each other during and after the match.”

Carpinteria track & field remains undefeated

Carpinteria High School’s track & field team swept Malibu High School in last week’s match, holding their standing as undefeated in Citrus Coast League action. Field events put the Carpinteria girls over the top against the second place Sharks from Malibu. The Lady Warriors won five of the six field events. Ainslee Alexander set a new PR in the long jump with a PR of 15-7.5. She also won the triple jump with a 32-9.5 hop, step and jump. She finished off her triple with a 26-1 victory in the shot put. “Alexander is a great athlete with tremendous competitive spirit,” said coach Van Latham. “She has the making of a heptathlete. She threw the discus for the first time today and has dabbled in the pole vault.” Fatima Cervantes won the high jump at 4-8 while Jenna Stadler won the discus with a toss of 70-4. The Warriors top performance on the track was by Alex Zapata in the 400m. In a close race, Alex finished second with a PR of 62.82. She also won the 300m hurdles cruising to a 54.92 clocking. On the boys side, Vincent Rinaldi had a short but quick day. He won his only race, the 100 meters in a time of 11.21. Mateo Handall also had a single event day winning the 400m with a time of 52.11. Carpinteria had four double winners. Irving Garcia battled a sore heel to win the long jump and triple jump with distances of 18-1.75 and 35-1.25 respectively. Esai Vega improved his PR in the discus by a few inches to 141-5. Vega also won the shotput with a toss 40-1.5. Tristan Cravens won both hurdle races with a time of 19.18 in the 110 highs and 46.46 in the 300 intermediates. Eduardo “Lalito” Vences rounded out the doubles with wins in the 1600 and 3200.

The Carpinteria High School girls tennis team had a successful day at the Citrus Coast League Individual Tournament at Santa Paula High School last week. The team took the top two spots in both singles and doubles. In the singles finals, Zahra Porinsh beat teammate Silke Leonard, 6-4. “It was a great match as each played much better in the finals and were much more comfortable than in the previous rounds,” coach Charles Bryant said. “They each constructed great, well thought-out points, some with a quick finish and some with a lot of patience, mixing in both hard-hitting pace and some off-speed shots, keeping each other off balance throughout the two sets.” In the finals match for doubles, the #1 seed team, Natalia Perez/Cassandra Maya Prado, won a three-set battle against Carpinteria’s #2 team, Maria Valeria Ojeda/Abbie Delwiche. “The players and fans got their money’s worth as we had an incredible back and forth battle between our top two teams,” Bryants said. “It came down to the wire and we had some very tired and sore players in both doubles and in singles at the end of the day.”

Warriors girls softball takes a loss to Santa Paula

In a girls softball game on May 10 against Santa Paula High School, the Warriors struggled to contain the high-powered offense of Santa Paula, giving up 10 runs. Santa Paula opened up scoring in the first inning, when an error scored them one run. A single by Amarisse Camargo in the second inning was a positive for the Warriors. Gracie Verdugo led things off in the pitcher’s circle for Carpinteria. Verdugo lasted six innings, allowing 11 hits and 10 runs while striking out two. Ashlee Mora, Nina Sturdivan, Camargo and Verdugo each collected one hit to lead Carpinteria Warriors.

Carpinteria boys volleyball succumbs to Malibu Sharks

The undefeated 6-0 Malibu team traveled to Carpinteria last week to play the Warriors in a boys volleyball match that would prove to be a losing battle for the Warriors. “The first set was a real battle,” coach Mickey Caughey said. “We held the lead early on and were tied five different times before finally succumbing to the Sharks 25-23 in set one… Then, the Sharks went on a feeding frenzy and showed why they are the only undefeated team in our Citrus Coast League, winning set two 25-13.” In the third, Carpinteria was able to hold the lead in each of the first six complete rotations with the score at 11-7. “Then the Sharks took over again,” Caughey said. The Warriors managed to make a four point run near the end, but Malibu won the final set 25-18 and the match 3-0. “It’s always hard to lose, but one of their parents told us we were the hardest match they played in league this whole season. So, that felt good to hear,” added Caughey. Gavin Lohuis had four aces, two kills, three blocks and eight digs. Diesel Slade had two aces, five kills, one block and five digs on the afternoon. The Warriors finish the season 2-4 in league and 2-5 overall.

Swimmers set new personal records

The Carpinteria Warriors hosted the Nordhoff Rangers in their last league meet prior to prelims and finals. Close swims between the Warriors and the Rangers pushed athletes to new levels and faster times, with timers watching excitedly from their seats, Warriors coach Sergio Castaneda said. On the boys side, freshman Asher Smith set personal records (PRs) in three different events, the 50 free (-3.32s to a 24.46), the 500 free (-1:30s to a 05:46.26), and his leg of the 400 free relay (-1.26 to 54.86). On the girls side, the Clayton sisters, junior Piper and freshman Devyn, achieved PRs in the 500 free (-4.90 to 06:00.83) and Ivan Vargas the 100 Fly (-4.57 to 1:24.85) respectively. clears the bar in “Times were great for the Warrior squad the pole vault. and led them to a victory on the boys end, but unfortunately were not enough on the girls end,” Castaneda said. “Regardless of results, the continual improvement and drive of the team is incredible and I hope to push that energy and motivation all the way through CIF.”

Lady Warriors basketball shows improvement

“The Lady Warriors have shown excellent improvement throughout the season but are still learning how to sustain a high level of execution on offense/defense,” coach Henry Gonzales said after last week’s losing game against the Flashes. In the first period, the Warriors scored three points while the Flashes scored 14. The second, the Warriors scored 14 points and the Flashes 13. The team hit four, three pointers led by Quezte Arce with two. “We were in the ball game at the half down 27-17,” Gonzales said. The beginning of the third saw the Warriors score the first two baskets of the

Matthew Lamberti readies on block. period to cut the lead to 27-21. In another game last week, against the high-powered offense of Santa Paula, the Lady Warriors played a consistent strong defense. After a slow first period (down 13-4) the Warriors outscored the Cardinals, 10-7, in the second period and were behind 20-14 at half time. The third period was a draw with both teams scoring only six points each. “The Warriors entered the fourth period with an opportunity to make it a game at the end but not being able to score on good scoring opportunities and giving up too many second/third offensive rebounds was their downfall,” Gonzales said. The Cardinals sustained their lead and won by 12 points, 41-29. “I was very pleased with our perfect effort and competitiveness throughout the game,” said Gonzales. “It was a good game for our seniors on senior night. Gigi Graham was excellent on defense, Emily Wazny was strong on the boards and Jasmine Gilbert and Hannia Hernandez gave us our offensive power.”

Nothing like living on the edge

A MONTHLY MUSE

28  Thursday, May 20, 2021

MELINDA WITTWER My grandsons saw me just about every day of their lives until their parents had the audacity to move to Texas. Maybe I could have forgiven Northern California but Texas? Of course the fickle gods of bad luck had more ways to torture me when Covid-19 kept everyone isolated, plane travel virtually ceased, and most people were afraid to leave their homes much less travel to the Lone Star state. A year and a half passed, my oldest grandson grew up to what looked like my chin, the middle grandson lost three or four teeth, the “baby” can now print his own name, and I lost at least 18 months of “Grandma time.” So, when my daughter-in-law broke her ankle and had to have a metal plate inserted in order to keep her ankle bones together and my son, who doesn’t like to ask for help, reluctantly did ask for help, I put my big-girl pants on and bought a plane ticket. Just in case I chickened out, the ticket was changeable. To help calm my fears, I bought a “comfort” window seat with the seat next to me blocked out. I ordered a heavy-duty mask and practiced counting off at least six feet of

space so I could be sure of staying away from Covid-19 contamination. The ride to LAX was the usual blend of ocean views, traffic jams and having to worry if I were going to get to the airport before I needed to use the bathroom again. My middle son got to be my chauffeur as the shuttle service was still closed down, and we arrived at the airport in plenty of time. To be honest, I was not expecting my flight to be very pleasant, and I had my hand sanitizer available at all times. I flew on Delta, and the only reason I’m sharing that with you is that it was an almost perfect flight. First, the plane was relatively new, very clean and nobody sat within four seats of me. Then before I had a chance to show off my “iron man” make-over, three gentlemen tried to help me get my suitcase into the overhead bin. Having white hair does have a few perks. When I finally settled into my seat, I was amazed when I had so much leg room that my feet couldn’t even reach the seat in front of me much less be crowded. The flight was comfortable and relaxed. Nobody sneezed on me, masks were in place, and after landing my son arrived in time to pick me up before I got too nervous around all these “new” people. When we got to my son’s house, everyone else was asleep so I had to wait until the morning for me to get my reward . . . lots of hugs. Let me assure you, having a metal plate inserted in your ankle can keep you down and out for a few days so I became the designated driver, the chef, and the laundress. Driving around a city I barely

knew and not being very good with the use of the GPS on my phone, was not the best combination either. Making dinner for six people is a challenge in my own home much less having to put food on the table in a kitchen I’m not familiar with, using food products I didn’t know. And then the food disappeared. I bought groceries and in two days I was out trying to find another grocery store. I forgot how many calories young boys can eat. Not only did I have to continually buy food, I also had to do at least a load of laundry every day, especially as the weather warmed up. Then there was Taekwondo for all three boys, homework, snacks and lots of reading to them at night. I have to admit, the “reading to them at night” was more of a joy than any kind of a chore. Reading together has always been my special connection to them, my way of passing on one of my favorite activities. But I must admit, by the time I read that last story, chances were I was sound asleep with three well-scrubbed, growing-way-too-fast, tires-me-out boys. On the fun side, I got to take my oldest grandson out to the bookstore to buy a new favorite book and enjoy a small treat. Next, my middle grandson and I had lunch, and he chose a birthday present for use now rather than wait for the real

day. And finally, my youngest grandson and I had a whole day of grandma time where we went out to his favorite breakfast place, played his version of Sorry, stopped at the cookie store on the way to the library, read the new books we had picked out, and tried to take a nap before having to pick up Momma. Seeing those boys, those grandsons of mine, being able to have conversations and laugh and read together and make plans to go to the cookie store and have adventures filled up a void in me that I had tried to ignore for well over a year. Their young lives will speed by so quickly, and I don’t want to miss any more huge chunks of Grandma time. Even though life is so much safer now than a year ago, we still have some hurdles to cross. The vaccines will help us stay healthy. Wearing a mask when needed will help, washing our hands will help, social distancing will help, but remembering that we do all these things not just for ourselves, but also to protect the ones we love will help most of all.
