The Carpinteria Visitor Kiosk opened this week on Linden Avenue near the beach. The seasonal service provided by the city is a summer stalwart, offering tourists and new residents advice and information on the area, local businesses and beaches. Volunteer hosts are essential to keeping the kiosk open and since reopening after the pandemic, the city has yet to fulfill its volunteer needs. “We are always looking to add to our volunteer crew who is eager to help visitors,” said Olivia Uribe Mutal, city of Carpinteria program manager. “In our first year ‘fully back’ we are really trying to get the word out to engage volunteers back and new volunteers.” On June 8, at 6 p.m., at City Hall, the city will host a volunteer sign up night. At the event, volunteers also share their reflections and receive some aspect of training.

Rescued pelican tally reaches 230, count slows
On Saturday, May 14, Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network began receiving an unusually large influx of brown pelican patients. In just two weeks, more than 230 brown pelicans were rescued and brought to SBWCN to receive care. Most of these birds arrived severely emaciated, dehydrated and hypothermic, with many more reports of deceased pelicans being found all over Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. At this time, the underlying Pelicans recover under the care of the cause of this widespread event Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network after is still unconfirmed. California falling ill from an unknown illness. Department of Fish and Wildlife is continuing to investigate potential causes. SBWCN announced this week the number of pelican rescues has started slowing down over the last few days. “Our total number of rescues since May 14 is now over 230. While we’re cautiously optimistic that we’ve seen the worst of it, we are still unsure of the reason why these birds are turning up emaciated, dehydrated and hypothermic,” the organization stated in an update. “We currently have about 90 pelicans in care here at SBWCN, so there’s still a lot of work to be done to rehabilitate these birds. Luckily, many of these patients are responding well to treatment, and most have moved out of our hospital and into our large outdoor aviaries.” The SBWCN team went into emergency response mode to accommodate the increasing number of sick pelicans. The Helpline team responded to as many calls as possible. The team of rescuers transported pelican patients to the Wildlife Hospital in Goleta. Animal care staff and volunteers continue to provide fluids, food and medication. To make a donation, visit sbwcn.kindful.com.

UNCERTAIN TIMES DEMAND A CERTAIN SHERIFF.
EXTENSIVE EDUCATIONAL AND EXECUTIVE CREDENTIALS
Being a sheriff today requires a chief executive who knows the job inside out. One who knows how to prepare, how to enforce, and how to collaborate.
A SHERIFF IS FORGED UNDER FIRE It’s been a tough 15 years with unprecedented crises: Fires, mudslide, dive boat fire, Covid, an opioid crisis, and massive budget cuts. But there has always been one constant – the strength and leadership of Sheriff Bill Brown. Sheriff Brown has faced each challenge with skill, compassion, and a wisdom borne of experience. He knows that part of keeping us safe also includes helping the vulnerable, including crime victims and those with mental health and addiction issues.
WITH AN EAR TO OUR COMMUNITY, HE ALSO HAS A VOICE IN D.C. Thanks to Sheriff Brown’s impressive record of transparent leadership in Santa Barbara County and throughout California, he has been elected as the Vice President of the Major County Sheriffs of America, and will become its President in 2024. This is an honor and provides our county with a voice on national policy that will affect us locally.
Sheriff Brown is an experienced law enforcement chief executive. He has a Master’s degree from USC and has graduated from many of the top law enforcement executive programs in the nation. He is the only person ever elected by peers to serve as President of both the California Police Chiefs’ Association and the California State Sheriffs’ Association. And he was appointed by Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown to serve since 2010 on California’s Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission.
A SHERIFF FOR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY
COVID, DEFUND THE POLICE, OPIOIDS & BUDGET CUTS It’s easy to blame external obstacles when the going gets tough. Not Sheriff Bill Brown. Despite major budget shortfalls, he secured $80 million in state funding for the modern Northern Branch Jail, which is now open. Despite the nationwide movement to Defund the Police, Sheriff Brown has maintained steady leadership and collaborated with others by teaming deputies with clinicians to help keep mentally ill people out of the criminal justice system. He’s working with other key community leaders to develop a multi-disciplinary approach to help tackle the opioid crisis and save lives. He’s also worked hard to help those suffering from mental illness and addictions.
A MODERN, PROACTIVE NORTHERN BRANCH JAIL Sheriff Bill Brown is a strong crime fighter, but he recognizes that many factors contribute to breaking the law. With the state-of-the-art design at the Northern Branch Jail, his influence is helping provide inmates with enhanced education, addiction control and life-skills training to better prepare them for re-entry to society.
Working closely with our diverse community, Sheriff Brown is proud to say his team of deputies and support staff reflects that diversity. His many collaborations with community leaders, and city, county, state and national organizations have resulted in a safer, stronger and more concerned community.
On June 7th, Vote to Re-Elect Sheriff Bill Brown.

New community resource deputy is 16-year Carpinteria sheriff’s deputy Bryan Dickey looks to increase interaction with local schools
BY EVELYN SPENCE Carpinteria’s new community resource deputy is Bryan Dickey, who has 16 years under his belt working in Carpinteria at the Sheriff’s Department. Dickey, who grew up in Ventura and got his start as an officer there, told CVN he wants to see more interaction between his role and Carpinteria schools. “I think I can be more involved with the crossing guards, before and after school,” he said. “Giving me (a chance) to interact with the kids as they’re going to and from school.” He said taking over as community resource deputy “was a natural position for me to slide into” after 16 years in Carpinteria. “I enjoy dealing with kids, riding bikes,” he said – citing both as a reason why he has stayed in the area for 16 years. Dickey commented on Carpinteria’s “small-town atmosphere,” which he said made the area different from other sheriff’s departments. “That’s what kept me here, and why I’m here.” He hopes to continue the work his predecessor, Deputy James Carovano, started before the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly with Carpinteria’s homeless population. Over the next few years, Dickey said he wants to work more with the city, particularly Assistant City Manager Michael Ramirez, on a local PAL (Police Activities League) program for youth in the area, he said. “It’s very key, especially for junior high, to get these kids involved with someone else inside the school, keep them away from the negative stuff,” he added. Over the past few weeks since stepping

Trustees concerned with student chronic absenteeism Local control accountability plan looks at disadvantaged students, absenteeism
BY EVELYN SPENCE At the May 23 Carpinteria Unified School District’s Board of Trustees meeting, Superintendent Diana Rigby presented the first reading of the district’s local control accountability plan, a three-year plan that looks at how the district uses its resources and outlines the district’s student make up. Rigby said there is a key focus on economically disadvantaged students, English language learners and foster youth. During the 2021-2022 school year, of the 2,099 students that have been enrolled, 25.7% are English learners, 72.5% are socioeconomically disadvantaged, 14.1% have disabilities, 74.9% of students are Hispanic, and 22% are white, according to Rigby. Based off 2020 numbers – due to Covid-19 – the district saw 93.5% average daily attendance, 27% chronic absenteeism, a 7% suspension rate and a 0.2% expulsion rate. In that same year, 91.4% of students graduated, 42.1% met A-G requirements, 54.7% were in AP/honors, 55.6% were college/career ready and 13.2% received the state seal of biliteracy. Board members were shocked that 27% of district students were chronically absent, meaning they missed more than a
month of school. Rigby clarified students are classified as chronically absent even if they have excused absences, such as due to illness. The district overall also had a 2% high school dropout rate during 2020. “Our truancy numbers are high,” Trustee Andy Sheaffer said. “Have we approached the city again about having a truancy officer? There has to be some mechanism to get those kids in school.” Rigby said the district initially hired a district social worker, who met with any families of chronically absent children, which helped the first semester until the social worker left for another job. The district still has the job open in the budget. She also named the Sheriff’s Office new community service deputy, Deputy Bryan Dickey, as someone who can help keep children in schools. Rigby said the district needs to increase parent and student participation and focus on a positive school culture. The ultimate goal is a 0% expulsion rate, a less than 5% chronic absenteeism rate, and a less than 1% suspension rate. Parent participation should be 60% or more; and ideally, Rigby said, all seniors will graduate high school with a 0% dropout rate.

Superintendent Diana Rigby went over the Carpinteria Unified School District’s demographics and goals for the upcoming school year during last week’s board of trustees meeting.
Five retirees honored at school board meeting

Each of the employees’ respective principals extensively praised their work at the district over the past two to three decades, before the retirees were all given rose bushes and certificates of appreciation. CHS Principal Gerardo Cornjeo said Gruener “was always looking for the best ways to provide for our students,” and praised her positive attitude. “Ms. Gruener has now decided to retire, even though we tried to convince her not to,” he joked. For Campbell, Cornejo called her an “integral component” at the school, and said she was “constantly looking for ways to support our students.” “Her knowledge and overall commitment to our students is evident every time anyone speaks to her,” he added. Carpinteria Middle School Principal Lisa O’Shea praised Leiter’s sense of

humor and dedication. “She’s brought joy, laughter and a deep commitment,” O’Shea said. Canalino Elementary School Principal Jamie Persoon said Tomscha was the first person on campus each morning and the last person on campus each night. “When I think about Kathleen’s class, I’m reminded about what a tight, close-knit and warm community she creates with her students,” Persoon said. “I came to see Kathleen taught with kindness and empathy at the center of everything.” Special Education Director Karla Curry spoke on Koontz’s service over the past 21 years, calling her a beloved teacher and referencing several awards she has received. “On behalf of CUSD, we wish Teresa all the best on her coming retirement. If you put as much effort into enjoying your retirement as you have CUSD, it will be a success,” Curry said. Board members also heavily praised each employee for their dedication before they were given a standing ovation. Superintendent Diana Rigby also honored board of Trustee President Jayme Bray, who is leaving the board. “We wish her and her family the very best in her new home and schools,” Rigby said.

I don’t think I’m just speaking for myself when I say I was disappointed when the Jr. Lifeguards program said it could only hold 65 members. I worked very hard for three months to be able to qualify for the program. And when my mom said it was full already, I was devastated.

Heart wrenching indeed
In response to “A heart wrenching protest” (CVN, Vol. 28, No. 36): Heart wrenching? In 2022, after years and years of ﬁghting, women’s control over their health and bodies is once again being threatened. Heart wrenching? Beautiful, thriving children massacred and terrorized in their classrooms by an 18-year-old with a legally purchased automatic weapon. Heart wrenching? The 424,000 kids in foster care in America in 2022 who experience traumatic, consistent upheaval. Heart wrenching? Our abysmal access to mental health care, prenatal care and family leave. Heart wrenching? The women’s lives who will be put at risk if they cannot access safe reproductive care. My sentiments are best expressed by Methodist pastor David Barnhart: “’The unborn’ are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you
to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn. You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus, but actually dislike people who breathe. Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are speciﬁcally mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn.”

In support of Susan Salcido
In oﬀering my support of the re-election of Dr. Susan Salcido for County Superintendent of Schools, I decided to heed the tried-and-true guidelines upheld by the nonpartisan League of Women Voters for their civil campaign forums. I want to focus on Dr. Salcido’s attributes and accomplishments rather than her opponent’s lack of experience, qualiﬁcations or credibility. In serving on the County School Board for the past nine years, I can attest to Dr. Salcido’s unwavering dedication to excellence in our varied public education systems, and her hard work in serving the urgent, wildly diverse needs of almost 70,000 students. She has addressed the strengths, disparities and LCAP’s of 20 diﬀerent school districts. I’ve witnessed her uncanny ability to navigate the daily challenges along with the life changing crises of natural disasters and a pandemic with her signature grace, keen intellect and collaborative, respectful brand of leadership. She is an active listener, skilled mediator and quick study – necessary with the everchanging state and county guidelines and mandates. Not only does she conduct all aspects of her position in the full light of day, she is welcoming and accessible to any who seek to communicate with her. Vote for Dr. Susan Salcido!

Carpinteria school district responds to Texas shooting BY EVELYN SPENCE
Following last week’s shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that killed 19 students and two teachers, Carpinteria Uniﬁed School District (CUSD) administrators reached out to parents, reiterating the district’s safety policies and preventative plans in place. Superintendent Diana Rigby said the district is horriﬁed by the shooting at the elementary school. “We send our deepest sympathies to the families and the Uvalde community,” she wrote to parents. “I want to reassure you that school safety is our top priority in CUSD, and teachers and staﬀ work hard every day to keep everyone safe.” Rigby told parents that each school in the district has a safety plan and mandated safety trainings for staﬀ, including active shooting training. Carpinteria’s elementary schools lock their gates at 8 a.m., while the middle school closes its gates at 8:30 a.m. Both have one secure entrance at the front oﬃce. Three security personnel at both the middle and the high schools, as well as administrators, monitor the campus, Rigby said. “While schools remain among the safest places for students, we know that yesterday’s shooting may cause our students to be concerned about their own well-being and we want to provide a safe space for questions and reassurance. Please contact your school principal or counselor if you or your children need additional support concerning this tragedy,” Rigby wrote to parents the day after the shooting at Robb Elementary School. Rigby included links to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) tips for talking to children about violence and included the number for the National Parent Helpline, 1-855-427-2736, which provides emotional support. Canalino Elementary School Principal Jamie Persoon told parents that the school reviews and approves a safety plan for the campus each fall. “When incidents like this occur (all too often) we re-examine our own safety plans on our campus,” Persoon said. At Canalino Elementary, staff go through safety trainings once a month, called Hour Zero, according to Persoon. She explained staff were previously trained on active shooting lockdowns, where students would hide with their teachers; now, strategies have shifted to getting students and staﬀ away from a potential shooter. “Given the size of the campus, there are many exits from campus, and every staﬀ member has access to open one of the 12 exits from campus. We have also updated communication systems, as well

as 50 staﬀ members who carry radios all day long. As principal, I would operate as incident command until law enforcement arrived, which would be quite quickly, given the small size of our town,” Persoon said. “None of us want to envision anything like this happening in our town. Nevertheless, the staﬀ is provided training, and the CUSD leadership team discusses safety during our weekly leadership meetings at the district oﬃce.” She also included the link to NASP mental health online resources and reminded parents about the schools’ counselors and psychologist.

Agriculture as wildﬁre protection
THE LAY OF THE LAND MIKE WONDOLOWSKI This year, the United Nations released a report (tinyurl.com/UN-ﬁre) concluding we can expect future wildﬁres to be even more frequent and more intense than recent ones, with a global increase of extreme ﬁres of up to 50% by the end of the century. Why is this? The report deﬁnitively states that there are two reasons: climate change and land-use change. Wildﬁres are made worse by climate change through increased drought, higher air temperatures, lower relative humidity, lightning and strong winds resulting in hotter, drier and longer ﬁre seasons. Changes in land use and modifications of the land are some of the biggest inﬂuences on wildﬁres worldwide. Some eﬀects are obvious such as increased ﬁre risk when a wetland is drained. But other eﬀects are less apparent. For example, land-use change can have a substantial impact on the regional climate. Deforestation has been shown to reduce evapotranspiration and cloud cover and decrease precipitation. The resulting drying can increase ﬁre conditions. Climate change and deforestation are huge global issues. There are steps we each can and must take to contribute to solutions. But what aﬀects us most directly are ﬁres that burn near us. This is where the primary recommendation of the report is relevant. It calls for a radical change in government spending on wildﬁres, shifting their investments from reaction and response to prevention and preparedness. The most eﬀective way to mitigate the risk of wildﬁres impacting us locally is to take prevention and preparedness steps locally. These are actions completely in our control, right here and right now. It was less than ﬁve years ago that we watched the Thomas Fire rage, mourned for those who were directly impacted, and learned what an N-95 mask was (which turned out to be useful information these past couple years). By the time the Thomas Fire was out, it had become the largest ﬁre in California history. In the short time since, that disaster has dropped to number eight on the list. Of the 20 largest ﬁres California has ever experienced, nine have been in just the past two years (just since Covid began!), 14 in the last 10 years, and 18 in the last 20 years. It is obvious that wildﬁre risk is growing every year. We have long heard about the importance of “defensible space” around
The Franklin Trail, pictured just a few weeks after the Thomas Fire burned the area in December 2017, shows how the green agricultural lands acted as a ﬁre buffer protecting houses, greenhouses and the rest of Carpinteria.
Climate change and deforestation are huge global issues. There are steps we each can and must take to contribute to solutions. But what aﬀects us most directly are ﬁres that burn near us. houses in wildﬁre areas. The idea is simply that removing ﬁre fuel from the area around a building reduces the chance of a wildﬁre reaching that building. The UN report recommends various large policy changes, but it also emphasizes that building away from vegetation and preserving open space buﬀers are good examples of the essential investments into prevention, preparedness and recovery. What might this mean to us here? If you look at an aerial photo of Carpinteria, or take in the view from the Franklin Trail, you see that the vast majority of the buildings (including greenhouses) are collected together in our developed area. Surrounding that is a mosaic of orchards and open-ﬁeld agriculture. You can think about that green, relatively not ﬂammable agriculture as a type of defensible space around Carpinteria. The Thomas Fire gave us a breathtaking example of the beneﬁt of this buﬀer.
The fire burned down the mountains right to the edge of the green. It did indeed damage avocado trees along the edge, but it did not progress further. One of the biggest planning mistakes we could make would be to give up some of the buﬀer that helps protect us. Replacement of green ﬁelds or orchards with ﬂammable buildings provides a potential path for a wildﬁre to ﬁnd its way to all of Carpinteria. Such replacement could be yanking out row crops and planting
Mike Wondolowski is president of the Carpinteria Valley Association (CarpinteriaValleyAssociation.org),a local organization dedicated to maintaining the small beach town nature of our community. In over 30 years of involvement in planning issues, he has witnessed visionary successes, as well as decisions that were later widely regretted. When not stuck indoors, he can often be found enjoying Carpinteria’s treasures including kayaking and snorkeling along the coast, running or hiking on the bluﬀs or the Franklin Trail, or “vacationing” as a tent camper at the State Beach.

apartments there instead. Or, just as dangerous, it could be pouring acres of concrete over agricultural land and building greenhouses there. While they are considered “agriculture,” they burn more like a house than a ﬁeld of lettuce. It is clear there will be more and larger ﬁres in the years to come. It is up to us to choose how we reduce their impact on our community.

Latinx Arts Project to hold June 14 event at Aliso
Mural Project honors former students from the era of “Mexican only” segregated Aliso School The Latinx Arts Project/Carpinteria (Proyecto de Artes Latinx/Carpinteria), a grassroots group founded in 2022, will hold a public event honoring former students who attended the Aliso Elementary School before the end of school segregation in 1947. The event will take place at Aliso on June 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. During the event, the Latinx Arts Project/Carpinteria will share plans for its ambitious “Past, Present, Future” mural project, which celebrates the Latino culture and history of Carpinteria. Former students ranging in age from 80 to 103, all born in California of Mexican heritage, will be in attendance and honored. They include: Tomas Castelo (80), Benito Villegas (80), Lorenzo Martinez (93), Salvador Campos (95) and Josephine Villegas (103). A short video by cinematographer Brent Winebrenner featuring interviews with these former students will be shown. LAP/Carpinteria will unveil its new logo, art-directed by award-winning graphic designer and fine artist Larry Vigon and designed by Vigon with Cynthia Van Stein. Guest speakers include Aliso Elementary School Principal Brett Weiberg, historian/former Carpinteria Main School Principal Dr. Jim Campos, Carpinteria City Council member Natalia Alarcon and Monica J. Solorzano, Co-president, Parents for Aliso. Prior to 1947, Carpinteria’s Aliso Elementary School were designated for “Mexicans only.” Although Carpinteria High School was integrated, few Mexican Americans graduated. Mexican Americans, who were born in the United States, were separated in a number of schools throughout California before a landmark case, Menendez vs. Westminster, called for the integration of schools and banned “Mexican only” schools in the Golden State. In the 1930s and 1940s, the kindergarten-through-8th-grade Aliso schoolhouse provided showers to students from the “Old Town” and “Hollywood” sections of Carpinteria, many of whom lived in homes with no indoor plumbing. The school was meant to be a funnel for this population to Carpinteria’s lemon industry, according to the project: workers needed for picking, wrapping and shipping. Carpinteria had two packing houses in town. The Carpinteria Mutual Citrus Association was “whites only” inside. Mutual Citrus integrated sometime

“Local artists will be invited to enter their design visions for consideration. The result is intended both as a vibrant visual testimony to Carpinteria’s Latinx history and a means of bridging all of our town’s cultures.”
Carpinteria’s population of 15,000 are currently Latinx. More than 80% of the students in the Carpinteria Unified public schools are Latinx. The Latinx Art Project will hold the event on June 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Aliso School Auditorium, 4545 Carpinteria Avenue.

during World War II. The labor shortage necessitated a change in their segregated policy inside the packinghouse during the war. Many women worked wrapping lemons individually and packing them for shipping. The Latinx mural project, co-founded by Suzanne Requejo and Leslie Westbrook, wants to create Latinx themed murals in Carpinteria, California. The project is currently in the fundraising stage, according to Westbrook. “Local artists will be invited to enter their design visions for consideration.

What is going on with the real estate market?
THE QUARTERLY REPORT J O N - R YA N S C H L O B O H M A number of years ago, I heard a real estate analyst share an idea of momentum in a market. He watched for the momentum to shift. He likened it to throwing a football, it climbs and climbs until it reaches the top of the arch and then it drops and drops until the ride is over. His thought or theory was that the first sign of a market change was when the momentum falls. I liked the theory, I have seen it true in one market and not another, but it sure makes me think. Today, it feels like the momentum is changing. We still have plenty of buyers and homes are selling quickly but, some people may be starting to wonder, might our market be changing? Since May of 2020, our real estate market has faced very few headwinds as it reached record highs. Prices have been appreciating so quickly and our sales volume has been unmatched. The vast majority of homes are selling as quickly as sellers are willing to review offers. Inventory is growing a little now. Over the last few weeks, our total number of homes and condos available between Carpinteria to Goleta has grown. Not
hard to do when it has been so low. Over the last three weeks, on May 10, 17 and 24, we had 141, 142 and 153 available homes and condos for sale respectively. This is still very low and only represents about a month’s supply of homes, but percentagewise it is decent growth, as our inventory averaged around 100-110 homes for the previous few months. Offer volume is also dropping. When we say that the momentum might be changing, don’t get us wrong, properties are still receiving multiple offers, but others are not. The total number of offers are decreasing. We are finding that some properties are not as busy as expected. For instance, about six weeks ago a home in a coveted neighborhood received 17 offers. Two weeks ago, in the same neighborhood, a very comparable property only received two offers. This surprised us but should also be tempered. In a normal market, any number of multiple offers is great. Even a home going under contract in the first couple of weeks is historically very good. We are also noticing a few more price drops, something that was very rare a few months back. But two years ago, price adjustments were very normal, even in a healthy market. Overall, our country’s economic news has not been great. With record inflation, a weakening stock market, supply chain issues, rising interest rates, etc., might it be causing our market to cool a little? Over the years, we have seen pauses in the market that last a few weeks, then we realize that the sky is not falling, and it takes off again. But at the same time, historically, all markets are cyclical. Our market remains active and multiple offers are still commonplace, but the market is starting to feel a little different. We will have to wait to see what is ahead.
Carpinteria Market Specifics
Like the greater Santa Barbara area, in general, properties continue to sell quickly in Carpinteria with buyers still outweighing sellers. Two notable changes have occurred. First, we have seen a few more homes sitting on the market longer. As prices have pushed up and then further up, some homes are not selling in the first week, and then we are seeing price reductions. This was much more uncommon a couple of months ago. Second, we have more inventory. On May 31, there were 21 homes in Carpinteria that were available for sale, but not one available condo. In a market that sells around 95 single-family homes a year, we have about a two-and-a-half-month supply of homes. A few things to note about our inventory: • 8 homes are priced between $14M to $109M, a price point that does not move as quickly in Carpinteria.

Carpinterians pay respects at Lions Club-led Memorial Day ceremony
PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON
Local residents gathered on Monday at the Carpinteria Cemetery for a Memorial Day ceremony, organized by the Carpinteria Lions Club. Military officials, city staff and community members surrounded waving United States Flags as they paid respect to U.S. veterans who died while in the service. The Bob Guthrie Memorial Pipe & Drum Corps played the bag pipes, Lion and Carpinterian of the Year (2020) Curtis Lopez played Taps and sang the star-spangled banner, and Peter Bie, president of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 218, gave a lengthy speech, allowing everyone to pay their respects.

The mother of the bride is Mary Ann Lucas, also of Moorpark. The groom’s parents are Linda Tornello of Carpinteria and the late Rick Tornello. The bride graduated from Duke University, Class of 2012.

Last year’s teen mural project, pictured with two of its teen artists, focused on being “Together Again” after a year of Covid-19. This year’s theme is “In My Life.”
“In My Life” is 2022 teen mural project theme
The theme for this year’s teen mural project at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center is “In My Life,” the center announced last week. For this year’s mural project, the center is asking local teens to create art inspired by the question: What is important to you today? Teens can pick up art materials – a 2’ by 2’ wood panel, 10 brushes and 10 containers of acrylic paint – on June 15 at the arts center, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Participants will work on their individual mural panels at home and return ﬁnished art on Friday, July 15. Each teen’s individual panel will then be incorporated into one large scale public mural. The mural will remain at the center
through Fall 2022. This year’s sponsors are the Woman’s Club, Carpinteria Beautiful and Marybeth Carty. “Every summer for many years now it has been my pleasure, along with other volunteers and generous sponsors, to help facilitate the Carpinteria Teen Mural Project at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center,” artist John Wullbrandt said. “The enthusiasm, creativity and artistry produced by the youth of our community continues to amaze and inspire me. These young artists seize the opportunity to express themselves in the most imaginative ways. They make me proud to call myself a fellow artist from Carpinteria, California.” Learn more at carpinteriaartscenter.org.

Canalino educators receive countywide recognition
BY DEBRA HERRICK
HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY TyTy! Where have you been all of our lives? You bring us all so much joy and we love you so much! You keep us on our toes but we wouldn’t have it any other way! Love - Mama, Dada, AC, Avery, Ya, Niko & the rest of your family

Two Canalino Elementary School educators were recognized this month by the Santa Barbara County Education Oﬃce (SBCEO). Shanna Hargett, the school counselor, received the 2022 Bill Cirone Heart of Education Award; and Nico Lopez, an instructional assistant for special education and district trainer for Crisis Prevention and Intervention, was named Classiﬁed Employee of the Year. Hargett and Lopez were honored at SBCEO’s Education Celebration event on May 26, along with other outstanding educators from across Santa Barbara County schools. Award recipients were selected by SBCEO’s Teachers Network, which has provided $1.4 million in grants and awards since its establishment in 1983. Grants awarded support innovative learning initiatives in all subject areas including environmental science, performing arts, and the integration of technology into the classroom. Grants were received by individual teachers and also teams of teachers from diﬀerent schools who have collaborated on new instructional strategies. “We are so pleased to be able to acknowledge and pay tribute to our county’s most exceptional educators,” said Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools Susan Salcido. “They made invaluable contributions to our schools, and to our communities, enriching the lives of the students, staﬀ, and families they serve. Hargett and Lopez’s awards follow two earlier recognitions this year to Canalino

staﬀ. In March, second grade dual language immersion teacher Sonia Aguila was selected as the California Bilingual Educator of the Year and will represent California at the National Association of Bilingual Educators. Also in March, third grade teacher Carolyn Haines was recognized as Carpinteria’s Educator of the Year by the South Coast Chamber of Commerce.
Nico Lopez, Canalino Special Education Instructional Assistant
Shanna Hargett, Canalino School Counselor
Bill Cirone Heart of Education Award recipient Shanna Hargett, Canalino school counselor, was recognized for her dedication to supporting students and families throughout the pandemic, both during and after school. Along with the award, Hargett received a cash honorarium, a special plaque and a visit from Bill Cirone, who founded the Teacher’s Network in 1983. Over the past two years, Hargett has made numerous home visits to students – listening, reassuring and ﬁnding ways to help, Steve Keithley, director of SBCEO Teachers Network, said in their announcement, noting several ways Hargett has gone above and beyond for Canalino students and their families. She drove families to the food bank to pick up meals and provided transportation for medical and social service appointments. Hargett saw children who were not exercising and leveraged community donations to buy bicycles, then spent her weekends teaching them how to ride. “Hargett’s story, driven by a special combination of heart, flexibility, skill, courage, passion and action, is a moving documentary about how educators responded selflessly and tirelessly to the new needs of children and families,” Keithley said. “Recognizing she could not do it alone, Hargett built a community network, committed to helping provide the resources needed to meet the growing social, emotional, recreational, and health needs of the community’s children and families… Shanna reminds us all that caring for each other truly is the heart of education.”
Each year, 10 educators and classiﬁed staﬀ from Santa Barbara County schools are awarded a Santa Barbara Teachers Federal Credit Union Crystal Apple Educator Award. Nominated for this award by their peers, these hard-working educators are recognized for their dedication to the ﬁeld of education, their instructional and motivational skills, their ability to challenge and inspire students and staﬀ, and their eﬀective interaction with the local community. This year, in addition to being named Classiﬁed Employee of the Year, Canalino Special Education instructional assistant Nico Lopez was awarded a Crystal Apple Educator Award. Lopez received a crystal apple trophy and a stipend. In addition to being an instructional assistant, Lopez also serves as a district trainer for Crisis Prevention and Intervention for the Carpinteria Uniﬁed School District. Lopez works with students with moderate to severe disabilities. Canalino Principal Jamie Persoon, who nominated Lopez, said he had a rapport and trust with each of the students in the moderate to severe disabilities special education program. “He has an innate gift when working with challenging behavior, he knows better than anyone how to de-escalate a behavioral situation, and calmly or compassionately regulate the student,” Persoon said. “He has an immense body of knowledge in strategies for developing student independence, compliance, communication and wellbeing.” Persoon also noted his unique talent and ability to aid and assist teachers in learning best practices for engaging students with different abilities and behaviors. In her nomination support statement for Lopez, Sherrie Paul, Canalino Special Education teacher, said: “He is a constant teacher both to the students he works with and to the adults who he works alongside.”

Update: Carpinteria Community Library
TOP FLOOR IS 2191 SQUARE FEET. (
BY JODY THOMAS, CITY LIBRARIAN
We are one month away from having our own city library. On July 1, Carpinteria Community Library will be opening a new chapter in its long history. After more than three years of demonstrated community support, a feasibility study and planning, the city will have responsibility for the library. In other words, it will be your library. Please join the city and the Friends of the Carpinteria Library in celebrating this important milestone at our Grand Opening party on Saturday, July 16, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. We’ll have music, food, tours of the library, activities for children, and new books and movies to borrow. Whether you are a regular library user or haven’t been in for a long time, please come check out what is new.
As we transition toward a city-managed library, patrons continue to beneﬁt from library programming. The Summer Reading Program starts on June 1 and will continue through July 31. Children ages 5-12 and teens can pick up a free book and a reading journal to get started. There is a summer reading program for adults, too! The Library Board of Trustees will be recruiting, soon, for members of a new Library Advisory Commission. Commissioners will act as a conduit between the city, the board and the city librarian to provide advice and feedback, review programs and services, and make recommendations. If this is of interest to you, please look for the upcoming recruitment of library advisory commissioners.

WELLNESS WARRIOR LEAH HARDING Marketing based diets are sold en masse. They often come in the form of multi-level marketing (MLM) products, like Optavia, Medifast, Shaklee and Herbalife. You’ve seen hundreds of these come and go. Here’s the problem: These plans are not individualized to the customer and offer little more than short-term gains for most people. There’s always going to be some success in a small pocket of individuals, which is always pushed across advertising. Those few successes are what you’re paying attention to as they tend to speak about their diet protocols with a religious fervor. Who doesn’t want that kind of experience? You’ll hear the same “It worked for me!” exuberance from those who have tried a fad diet and found success, like going keto, Whole30, 75 Hard, or simply going gluten-free. (Not sure what some of these are? You aren’t missing anything.) Maybe you’ve heard the joke “How do you know if someone is vegan? They’ll tell you.” That joke can be said of any diet protocol. If it works for someone, you’ll know. But just because it works for them, doesn’t mean it will work for you. These people are inadvertently (or knowingly) doing the marketing for MLM companies and fad diets. And what happens with a fad? People and businesses quickly realize the gains they can make if they sell a product and label it “low carb” or “keto friendly.” These companies understand all of the buzzwords and marketing strategies to elicit an emotional response from you – their target audience. They’re also keenly aware that these fads come and go, so when they get a win-
ner, they know that time is of the essence. Push hard on marketing, get successes, push those to the top, and “make hay while the sun shines.” What these companies understand is that people want to get sold. If you Google “How to lose weight” you’re looking for a solution to try and make your problem(s) go away. This is how fad diets and MLMs spread. Everyone wants to believe there’s a magic pill, supplement or regimen that’s going to be that “thing” that fixes them. Here’s the deal though: If it’s not tailored to you, flexible and easily executable, you probably won’t see the results you’re hoping for. Here’s are some common elements on MLM sites that should make you wary: They charge significantly more than similar products on the market. They cite an in-house study as proof. I don’t care if it’s “doctor-tested” or formulated by scientists, true studies will be double blind and randomized and available for publication by having others peer review the data. They hand-pick testimonials and list them on their site. These will be business-positive messages that look true. Remember, these companies have complete control over their messaging and want to make you feel good about what you are reading. Non-ideal testimonials are still there for a reason, i.e. “I didn’t lose weight right away, but once I did lose, it really worked!” – these are there to soothe the doubter in you. Guaranteed results. No diet that is not personally made for you, should be guaranteed. There’s no magic bullet. What they’re guaranteeing is that if you follow everything step-by-step, and still fail… they’ll give you your money back. They’re banking on many more people not bothering to get their money back, and they know most people will simply give up. The MLM experience: recruit more people under you – to sell more products – to keep paying you for what they sell. Sellers beget sellers. It doesn’t mean the products are good or going to work. It also doesn’t mean they won’t work. However, you will feel compelled to use these products because of your investment and might even talk about it in a positive light. Here are some common elements that make up a fad diet: • You start hearing about it everywhere, including TV and magazines. • The diet will require you to cut out whole food groups in their entirety, or

Cutting out whole food groups or having certain supplements available will not always be feasible. These diets assume you have all the time and money in the world to focus on them. There is one exception to fad diets that I do believe has a place in good nutritional health: fasting.
This fad doesn’t require you buy anything or eliminate whole food groups, it’s merely about the timing of when and how often you eat. Again, I am not recommending it for everyone, but fasting is a valid/successful nutritional protocol for many people. Hopefully this will help you wade through the noise to find where your personal nutritional and fitness balance lies and understand that it doesn’t have to be the hot new trend to work for you.

Rincon Moment: The 1969 Swell
BY VINCE BURNS
Forget the moon landing or Woodstock, the biggest story from 1969 for Rincon surf aficionados is an epic swell that closed out a very tumultuous year. The year 1969 had started off terribly, first with torrential rains and local flooding. Then came a disaster: a massive blowout at Union Oil Platform A that soiled beaches from Ventura to Santa Barbara. After the beaches were gradually cleaned of oil, the year ended with a fabled swell that 50 years later is still shrouded in myth and legend. The meteorological facts: several storms in the North Pacific merged into a monster front that produced epic surf in Hawaii, one benefit of which was Greg Noll’s famous ride on a Makaha 35-footer that may have been – at the time – the biggest wave ever ridden. By early December, the storm took aim at the California coast. To meet the swell, a half-forgotten cast of characters paddled out on the afternoon of Dec. 5 to test themselves against the waves of the century. Before we dive into the particulars of that day, let’s remember that surf stories can be a bit like fish stories. A continually embellished narrative is passed from surfer to surfer resulting in a fact-challenged nightmare of jumbled and enhanced memories impossible for any historian to pin down. But not in this case. For 1969’s surfing finale, we are lucky to have separate written accounts from two principals: Mike Davis and George Greenough. They describe in detail not only their own waves and experiences, but also the remarkable oceanographic conditions that day at Rincon Point. First, a word about Greenough (b. 1941) and Davis (b. 1947). Both grew up in Santa Barbara but have lived in Australia for many years, Greenough in Byron Bay and Davis in Noosa Heads. Greenough is the “barefoot genius” of surfing who pioneered various board designs and surf filmmaking and remains one of the most unique and interesting figures in all of surfing. Davis himself became a successful board designer in Australia and has also had time to do some writing. Besides a 2016 article in The Surfer’s Journal on the 1969 wave, Davis has also independently published novels, including “Of Wax and Sand” and “Peter Pan: Memoirs of Just Another Santa Barbara Guy,” which are filled with colorful anecdotes of the 1960s’ Santa Barbara surf life. In the memoirs are cameos of many of the figures featured in these pages over the last year: George Greenough, Renny Yater, John Eichert, Kevin Sears, Jeff Boyd, among many others. Despite all his years in Australia, Davis’ writing still displays a great affection for Rincon. Noting its miraculous nature, Davis has written, “how else could a small river trickling into the Pacific Ocean… form a cobblestone point which consistently produces the best wave in the known surfing world – so much so that all those that followed were always described just like Rincon.” Sounds right to me. So, with Greenough and Davis as our guides to the day, here’s their story of Rincon’s greatest wave. On Friday, Dec. 5, various road closures made access to Rincon difficult just as the massive waves arrived, with surf building throughout the afternoon. Davis arrived at the Point with Stu Fredericks to see 15-plus-foot (and getting bigger) waves breaking. Greenough was already in the water on his five-foot belly board. Also on scene were recent Carpinteria High School
Likely Jeff Boyd, circa 1967, at Rincon Cove making a radical bottom turn with his fin out of the water. Riding the longboard like a shortboard, Boyd pointed the way to the coming shortboard revolution. From Boyd himself: “The board was a Yater that was about 9’6”… My friend Kevin Sears on occasion borrowed that board and I always thought it might have been him in the photo… It’s a great photo and it’s either Kevin or me.” Both Boyd and the late Kevin Sears were in the water on Dec. 5, 1969, Rincon’s biggest day. grads Sears and Boyd. Because the waves were breaking so far out, even the paddle-out was challenging. The swell had revealed that the reef at Rincon (the accumulated underwater debris from thousands of years of Rincon Creek runoff) extended further out to sea than anyone had thought. This reef was influencing the behavior of the incoming waves as they “felt” the rising ocean floor beneath them and began to break. Davis rode a massive wave, estimated to be 20-30 feet. But it was the iconoclast waterman Greenough who had the last word, catching the final wave of the day as darkness closed in. Reading Davis’ 2016 account of the day brought Greenough’s own memories into focus. Adding to them, George dove deeply into the physics and bathymetry (water-depth data) to understand the physics behind these remarkable waves. Greenough’s account (told with his original drawings, calculations and Navionics charts) is an impressive re-telling of his adventure that day. The highlight: a second-by-second record of the ride on what he called his “Fantasy Wave.” He ended a piece he wrote for Acetone Magazine with this paragraph on the end of the ride: Mike Davis, who was the last surfer out, had the perfect landing in the corner of The Cove before sunset, that’s where I planned to land. I was over 3000 feet out when I picked up Part 2 of Fantasy Wave and wasn’t sure where The Cove was in the dark when I straightened out. I was glad to be on solid ground. I don’t like to think where I would have washed in at, had I wiped out on the take-off and lost the board. Probably way down along the sea wall in the dark. The board would have been smashed to bits and it would not have been easy to climb up the sea wall with the large surf in the dark. Let’s leave George in the cold Rincon dark for now. We won’t spoil the rest of his story for you, except to say that he started his ride an unbelievable twothirds of a mile out to sea from the beach and nearly completed a 7,000-foot ride. Besides Davis and Greenough, Jeff Boyd also remembers the muddy and oily year of 1969 and the “bombora”* waves that show up rarely at Rincon Point. For the curious, there’s also a single photograph tied to that day floating around the internet showing a solitary (likely Yater or Davis) surfer cutting a beautiful line down the face of a monster wave. All of this makes for quite a story from 52 plus years ago. And thanks to Davis and Gree-

2021-2022 Senior Sports Spotlight BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING
As Carpinteria’s Class of 2022 prepares to don their caps and gowns to celebrate the end of their high school careers, we take a look back at this year’s senior student athletes who lived out the school motto of “Warrior Spirit Never Dies” during their time on the field, the court or in the pool. This week, we highlight the seniors from the Fall/ Winter sports seasons. ABOVE, Girls soccer seniors, left to right: Karen Gamez, Riley Wrought, Kate Cooney and Jackie Aguirre
The Warriors girls soccer team was led by four senior members. Karen Gamez played all four years on varsity and was voted the team’s MVP and captain in her senior season. Coach Freddy Martinez nicknamed her “Coach Karen” for her halftime talks and leadership, saying, “I knew she always had the team’s success and not personal gains in mind every time she spoke up.” Riley Wrought was named this season’s Defensive Player of the Year, and coach Martinez described her as an “outstanding team leader who had a lot of heart” who always gave her full effort regardless of injuries or fatigue. “I loved how she was the first to praise teammates when they did something well,” he said, “but she was also able to demand better from them when things were not going so well.” Kate Cooney earned the team’s “Warrior Pride” award for being a shining example of dedication, perseverance, and team pride. “Kate was the firecracker off the bench that did all that grunt work regardless of the scoreline,” Martinez said. Jackie Aguirre was a key component of the team’s tactical success this season, and a “true leader,” Martinez said, in her defensive midfielder position. Although she is soft spoken, she made her presence known on the field and earned a spot as the team’s fourth captain by the end of the season. The boys soccer team was led by a group of ten seniors, including Marcos Dominguez, Leo Alaniz, Brian Garcia,
Angel Velazquez, Yenson Ramirez, Jonathan Esquivel, Brian Mendoza, Steven Zermeño, Aaron Cardona and Daniel Peña.
Warriors girls basketball had just one senior who played this year, with Quetzemany Arce, known as “Quetza” to her teammates and coaches, holding it down for the team on the court while injured senior Nancy Pantaleon cheered along from the sidelines. Coach Henry Gonzales said Arce was a four-year player for the Warriors, taking on the role as a starting guard and earning All Citrus Coast League honors in her junior and senior seasons. “Quetza always gave it her all in practice and games,” Gonzales said. “She was a team player that had the respect of her teammates. “ In addition to her work ethic and tenacious defense on the court, Arce is also an excellent student who is excited to continue her education at college next fall. “It was a joy coaching and watching her grow as a basketball player and young lady,” Gonzales said. “She will be missed.” This year’s boys basketball team was led by a group of four seniors: Hanan Soicher, Bryan Alpizar, Jared Zapata and Matt Garcia.

The Warriors were dominant in the pool this year, finding success in water polo and swim meets all throughout 2021-2022. The girls water polo team was led by a group of eight seniors: Sydney McKaskey, Jocelyn Peña, Piper Clayton, Briana Rodriguez, Natalia Perez, Madison Mora, Serena Smith and Alondra Badillo. The boys and girls swim teams were anchored by solid performances from Matthew Lamberti, Augie Sheaffer, Pier Clayton and Lana Elmore.

Girls tennis Class of 2022: Maria Valeria Ojeda, Cassandra Maya Prado, Nansy Velasquez, Abbie Dewilche, Stephanie Gonzales Coss and Natalia Perez
Six seniors competed for the Warriors girls tennis squad this year. Three-year starter Maria Valeria Ojeda continued to show progress, Coach Charles Bryant said, especially in doubles play where she teamed up with fellow senior Abbie Dewilche as Citrus Coast League’s runners up in 2020-2021 and First-Team All-League in 20212022. “Valeria lightened things up at practices and even the matches with her fun and playful personality,” Bryant said. Ojeda’s doubles partner, Dewilche, began playing only a few years ago, but in just a couple seasons she has risen to First-Team Citrus Coast League and served as a “force from both the baseline and the net,” Bryant said, with power and precision that led to many team wins. Cassandra Maya Prado, another three-year starter who was the Citrus Coast League Doubles Champion in 2020-2021, had a strong senior year before suffering a season-ending injury in the team’s last league match of the year. Despite missing the opportunity to defend her title, Coach Bryant said she was the “epitome of sportsmanship and class” throughout her career. Nansy Velasquez was the Warriors’ best all-around player. “She played singles,
Senior cheerleaders, from left: Piper Clayton, Lilly Pendergast, Lilli Zapien-Ybarra, Kealani Rodriguez, Diana Corona, Avalina Donnelly, Alea Dahlquist and Paulina Avalos doubles, doubles with different partners,’’ Bryant said, “nothing phased her, and she handled it all knowing she was playing where she could benefit the team the most.” In addition to her skills on the court, coaches say she is also an “amazing and talented artist.” Singles specialist Stephanie Gonzalez Coss was one of Carpinteria’s most balanced student athletes, and “juggled so many activities and clubs this year that I don’t know how she even had time to practice,” Bryant said. The team’s captain and leader, Natalia Perez, drew praise from coaches and teammates for her work on and off the court. She was a “thoughtful ambassador, coach, motivator,” who led by example, Bryant said, and “someone who will be missed greatly” by the coaches and her teammates. “If I could only clone her,” Bryant said.
Seniors Celebrate Title IX
Earlier this year, the community celebrated the 50th anniversary of the historic Title IX legislation, which led the way in pushing for equality for women in sports. The Warriors celebrated their own Class of 2022 with senior night, highlighting the school’s student athletes who help keep Warrior Spirit alive.

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery?
This report covers May 16 – 29, 2022.

Canalino kids shine at South Coast Math Superbowl
Natural History Notes
Most pups are now difficult to distinguish.
Over the summer and fall, the seals are more likely to be seen at higher tides and on poor weather days. Why? Because on June 1 the city ordinance closing the beach to protect the seals during the birthing season ends. This means the seals are only protected by the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act, and too few people are aware that approaching the seal sanctuary means violation is probable. The seals usually flee before they are seen by people who approach on the beach. If everyone used the blufftop trail above the sanctuary the seals would be enjoyed by people year round.
Fourth, fifth and sixth grade students across the county brought their math skills to the test on Tuesday, competing in the South Coast Math Superbowl at the Earl Warren Showgrounds. Two teams of four, representing fourth and fifth grade from Canalino Elementary School participated. The fourth-grade team earned third place in the hands-on activity, Paper Towers. To practice for the tournament, the students stayed after school on Wednesdays and took on extra homework to hone their skills. The fourth-grade team was led by their teacher and math coach, Leigh Ann McDonald.
Beachwalkers chased the seals away twice, and pier workers twice disturbed them, as did occupants of a car at the foot of the pier and a dog barking on the blufftop..
The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. Volunteers needed. Call (805) 684-2247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.
