The mural at the corner of Carpinteria and Linden avenues will be relocated to a more visible location on the property.

Wullbrant mural will be relocated

John Wullbrandt’s iconic Carpinteria mural, featuring Carpinteria agriculture, will be relocated to the east wall of the future Chrisman California Island Center, Carpinteria Beautiful announced Monday. “The transfer is being made possible through the courtesy of the Santa Cruz Island Foundation,” representative Marla Daily said. “While the building is undergoing exterior renovations, the mural will be given some needed care and additional waterproofing.” The center is expected to open in 2023, according to the organization.

Council approves new 15-year contract with E.J. Harrison & Sons

Last month, the Carpinteria City Council approved a new 15-year contract with E.J. Harrison & Sons for waste removal in the city. The new contract kicks in on July 1; it also includes the possibility for two, five-year extensions. E.J. Harrison has operated in Carpinteria since 1993. “The new contract allows the city of Carpinteria the comfort of knowing they will be in compliance with SB 1383,” Daniel Harrison, E.J. Harrison & Sons contract compliance manager, said. “The contract negotiations went well because it was the ultimate team effort. We trust each other and have open communication. We are excited to service the city of Carpinteria for the next 25 years.”

65-year-old outfall line renovated in Summerland

The Summerland Sanitary District is renovating its 65-year-old outfall pipeline, which carries treated water to the ocean. Renovations are scheduled for completion by June 17. The district’s board of directors approved the project, which is estimated to cost $1 million, last year, after an inspection of the outfall pipeline showed it was “deteriorating.” The project is funded from the district’s capital reserves and a loan. “This operation is long overdue, and complies with the California clean water initiative,” Dave Novis, board president, said in a release.

Sportfishing Conservancy donates $540 to local organization

The Sportfishing Conservancy donated $540 in late May to the South Coast Habitat Restoration (SCHR), Moe Gomez, director of the South Coast Habitat Restoration, said. The funds came from the conservancy’s April 30 “Coastal Human Power Tournament,” which raises money for local organizations. The two groups, represented by Gomez, Tom Raftican, Carpinteria Sportfishing Conservancy president, Carpinteria Sportfishing Conservancy member Gary Sanchez and South Coast Habitat Restoration project manager Jason White, met at Danny’s Deli to exchange the check. “We are honored to have been selected as the recipients this year!” Gomez said. “The funds will help SCHR’s efforts to restore local creeks and habit for endangered steelhead trout.”

Covid-19 test order for international flights rescinded, CDC says

RENTALS

International travelers are no longer required to show a negative Covid-19 test when boarding a plane to the United States, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced last week. “The Covid-19 pandemic has now shifted to a new phase, due to the widespread uptake of highly effective Covid-19 vaccines, the availability of effective therapeutics, and the increase of high rates of vaccine- and infection-induced immunity at the population level in the United States. Each of these measures has contributed to lower risk of severe disease and death across the United States,” the organization said in a release. The CDC still recommends that travelers take a Covid-19 test before traveling, although it is no longer mandated. Santa Barbara County’s Covid-19 case rate went down this week, with a case rate of 28.52 cases per 100,00 residents, and a 12.5% test positivity rate. The number of current active cases is 925, for a total of 92,797 reported cases since the Covid-19 pandemic began. These numbers do not include athome, rapid Covid-19 test results.

CITY BEAT Special city budget meeting scheduled for June 23

Coastal View News • Tel: (805) 684-4428

BY EVELYN SPENCE

The Carpinteria City Council began formal discussions over its 2022-2023 fiscal year budget at its Monday, June 13 meeting. Administrative Services Director Licette Maldondo said the city has three major revenue sources: the transient occupancy sale, sales tax and property tax. Property tax will increase, the sale tax will see a slight decrease, and the transient tax will not change, according to Maldonado. The budget also is created as though the city is fully staffed, although the city currently has some vacant positions. It is influenced by the city’s annual work plan meeting, held this year in January 2022. Major projects include pavement maintenance, the Rincon trail, the Carpinteria Skatepark and the East Via Real storm water drain project. Although big ticket budget items

such as the Carpinteria Skatepark were initially slotted for last year’s budget, the skatepark will now be included in the upcoming year’s budget due to scheduling delays, city staff said. Two or three other capital projects also fall under this category. City staff will go over the budget in more detail at a special city meeting, scheduled for Thursday, June 23, at 3 p.m. The council will either approve the 20222023 fiscal budget at the June 23 meeting, or at its regularly scheduled June 27, 5:30 p.m. meeting. “I want to thank the community for helping us with Measure X, we wouldn’t be where we are without Measure X… it’s a blessing,” Councilmember Gregg Carty said. View the full budget at carpinteriaca. gov, under the city’s Hot Topics. Mayor Wade Nomura was absent at Monday’s meeting.

Limited hours at library due to staff shortage

The new Carpinteria Community Library will not be open on Mondays due to a staff shortage, librarian Jody Thomas told the city council this week. “As soon as we are fully staffed, we will be adding Mondays back and adjusting the hours,” Thomas said, adding the library also hopes to have night hours soon. “The team I’m building is really solid (it’s) just taking longer than expected.” The library has made conditional offers to two part-time library technicians, Thomas said, but more staff – beyond Thomas and fellow librarian Eric Castro – are needed to bring the library up to full hours. Library technicians must have an AA degree, a high degree of technological skills, speak Spanish and English and

In other city news… Stuart appointed to Harbor Seal Committee

Toni Stuart was appointed Monday as the newest member of the city’s Harbor Seal Committee, after Terri K. Pulliam resigned. Stuart has been a 10-year volunteer with the Seal Watch. She was approved unanimously.

Needs assessment coming from Senior Services Planning Committee

The city’s Senior Services Planning Committee is working on a community needs assessment for Carpinteria, Asst. City Manager Michael Ramirez told the council Monday. The group is also identifying possible locations for an interim senior services center. “It’s moving along very quickly, going to continue quickly,” Councilmember Carty said. Carty and fellow Councilmember Roy Lee are on the committee, along with several community members. Community member Rosalyn Kohute, a vocal voice in the fight for a Carpinteria senior center, said it has been “an eye-opening pleasure to attend the ad-hoc committee meetings.”

The program is looking to train five high school volunteers to work with struggling readers over the summer, beginning July 5 and ending August 8; the program will run Monday through Friday, 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. “We have the high school students identified, but currently have room for four second or third grade students who are having a hard time learning to read,” Thomas told CVN. The library is scheduled to open July 1, with a celebration set for July 16, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Congratulations Class of 2022! CVN

SUPERINTENDENT’S DESK DIANA RIGBY CUSD SUPERINTENDENT

It is my pleasure to honor and recognize the distinguished Carpinteria High School (CHS) Class of 2022 – 165 graduates! They did it! For the past four years, their high school experiences were disrupted by fires, mudslides, lost lives, and now the pandemic. They missed the milestone experiences in both sophomore and junior years, yet they overcame these challenges with fierce determination and grit to achieve at high levels. I am so proud of their personal growth, perseverance, resilience and kindness. I can’t wait to see what they accomplish in college and beyond.

Appreciation

Thank you to Principal Gerado Cornejo, assistant principals Kirsten Neumann and Jeremiah Sobenes and the CHS Parent Group for organizing the wonderful senior activities and the senior flags on Linden and Carpinteria avenues. I would also like to thank Carpinteria Middle School (CMS), Aliso/Summerland elementary schools, and Canalino/Carpinteria Family School principals, office staff and parent groups for their fabulous promotion ceremonies. Congratulations to fifth and eight grade students and their families!

School Safety

School safety is our top priority, and teachers and staff work hard each day to keep everyone safe. Each school has a safety plan and mandated safety training for staff, which includes active shooter training. CUSD has a number of physical safety and security measures in place, including locked doors and fences in K-8 schools, controlled building access in K-8 schools, visitor sign-ins, employee badges, service employee uniforms and hallway and campus supervision. At CMS, there are three security personnel and two administrators monitoring the campus. At CHS, four security personnel and three administrators monitor the campus. Carpinteria’s new community resource officer, Deputy Brian Dickey, supports all the schools and families, and is frequently on school campuses. In addition to physical safety measures, the district has implemented a three-tiered system of robust student support for mental health wellness. At each school site, teachers develop strong relationships with each student, social-emotional curriculum is taught in every classroom, students participate in positive school climate activities and school counselors and psychologists are available to all students and their families. CUSD received a three-year $200,000 grant from AHA! (Attitude, Harmony, Achievement) to provide training to all district staff in social-emotional learning. We have become the first district in Santa Barbara County to support all CUSD adults with an increased understanding of social-emotional skill development in students. The Santa Barbara Mental Wellness Center also provided staff training in

Students missed the milestone experiences in both sophomore and junior years, yet they overcame these challenges with fierce determination and grit to achieve at high levels.” “Youth Mental First Aid” and Youth Wellness Connection Clubs at CMS and CHS. For those students and families requiring more intensive social-emotional support, FSA (Family Service Agency) and CADA (Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse) provide school-based mental health therapists at each school site. Additionally, we provide a grant-funded Family Social Worker for the elementary schools. We also coordinate with the Family Resource Center at Carpinteria Children’s Project and Carpinteria CONNECT to provide therapeutic services to parents and families. Students with serious emotional issues are supported by their special education team and intensive mental health counseling, and may be placed in regional or non-public therapeutic programs.

partnerships with the LEA’s expanded learning offerings, the After-School Education and Safety Program (ASES), the California state preschool program, Head Start programs and other early childhood education programs.

Measure U

Summerland school is progressing, with both buildings now resembling a school. Siding and roofing are complete for the lower classroom. Interior work,

including all mechanical trades and sheetrock, are beginning at the lower campus, with the upper classrooms not far behind. The CHS Administration buildings windows are now in, including the beautiful storefront windows at the entrance of the school. Interior finishing work continues, and the project is on target for completion in the first week of August. Canalino modernization will begin immediately after school ends, with two full construction teams working on the administration building and the kindergarten classrooms. The Main School campus painting project will begin shortly after the end of school. Due to the complexity of preparing the building for painting, the project will be phased and completed next summer of 2023, when the roofing project will resume. Diana Rigby is the current superintendent of Carpinteria Unified School District. For more information about CUSD, log on to cusd.net, or contact Diana at drigby@cusd.net or (805) 684-4511x222.

Summer School 2022

CHS and CMS summer schools run from June 13 – July 8, in English and Math, for CHS/CMS students who failed either subject during the school year. Approximately 100 elementary students will attend Fun in the Sun United Way program at Aliso Elementary School during June and July. The special education extended year program will be held at both Aliso and CHS, June 13 – July 8, with 40 special education students.

Staff Recruitment 22-23

We continue to recruit for elementary special education teachers, school psychologists, a speech/language pathologist, a psychical education teacher, a CMS Science teacher and a Special Education Director. At CHS, we are looking for math teachers, and a history and culinary arts teacher.

Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK)

Under the provisions of California Education Code (EC) Section 8281.5, grant funds are allocated to school districts, charter schools and county offices of education (COEs) with kindergarten enrollment in specific years, according to a specified formula. CUSD has been allocated $128,437. Grant funds may be used for costs associated with creating or expanding the California State Preschool Program or transitional kindergarten programs, or to establish or strengthen partnerships with other providers of pre-kindergarten education within the Local Education Agency (LEA) – including Head Start programs – to ensure that high-quality options for pre-kindergarten education are available for four-year-old children. Allowable costs include, but are not limited to: (1) planning costs, (2) hiring and recruitment costs, (3) staff training and professional development, (4) classroom materials, and (5) supplies. As a condition of receiving grant funds, state law requires each LEA create a plan articulating how all children in the attendance area of the LEA will have access to full-day learning programs the year before kindergarten. This plan must meet the needs of parents, including through

Now, a bright blue will greet eagerly waiting patrons at Carpinteria’s new library, painted over the library’s old mauve color.

Library staff hits final stretch before reopening

Carpinteria library and city staff are tackling the final stretch of renovations before the library is set to open on July 1 – the end of a long road to Carpinteria having its own municipal library. By the end of this week, the carpet and paint will be “nearly complete,” according to librarian Jody Thomas. “We will be bringing back the books and existing furniture this week and moving back in next week,” Thomas said. She said the city’s IT team will focus on the library’s technology next week, and that the library is currently waiting on new furniture. New additions to the library also include new water heaters in the bathrooms, a water bottle filling station, additional outlets and ethernet ports, and café tables and tables on the front porch. Thomas added that a new website for the library “will be live very soon.” “I’ve had a couple of people peek in since the doors were open during the painting process and let me know they like the changes. I know most people are happy to hear the mauve paint is getting an update,” Thomas said. The city has also made conditional offers to two new part-time staff, and are looking to hire a third.

technicians must be bilingual in Spanish and English. Thomas asked patrons be mindful that the library is a “work in progress,” and invited suggestions for new programming and ideas at the library from community members. “While we will have much of the renovation complete at time of opening, we will be rearranging the space as we see what works, adding furniture that is coming this fall, completing the unfinished work and always trying to make improvements,” she explained. “The library is a small space, and we are trying to fit a lot of life into it.” The city and the Friends of the Carpinteria Library will hold a re-opening celebration at the library on July 16, from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. ––Evelyn Spence

Vote for Mike Stoker

Carpinteria is in a new State Assembly district. We have a local who just qualified to be on the November ballot by being in the top two. Mike Stoker is a local Carpinterian who has had his own law practice and worked at the state and federal levels of government. He is a nice guy. We supported him in the June election and posted a sign on our property. It was stolen last night from our property – this may tell you something about his opponent’s supporters. To my knowledge his opponent has

only had government jobs, and seems to know little about private business. Santa Barbara County Association of Government (SBCAG) comes to mind, which caused the freeway expansion delay. We are living in that nightmare. Please vote for Mike Stoker in November. Some of you are so disgusted with the system you didn’t even make an effort to vote in June. We can help to make that change by voting for Mike in November.

VIEWPOINT Strengthen our community By Wade Nomura, Mayor of Carpinteria

Before I turn my attention to Carpinteria news, I want to acknowledge how saddened and sickened I am by the horrific tragedy in Uvalde, Texas. If you’re like me, you’ve spent a lot of time lately with a lump in your throat and a frustrating sense of helplessness. My heart goes out to all the families suffering from this atrocity. I’m holding everyone I love even closer now. As we reflect on horrific incidents afar, we must redouble our efforts to strengthen our community, focus on positive change and being bright lights for our children. In Carpinteria, our Junior Lifeguard program is a feather in the city’s cap. It has a long history of producing fine athletes, ocean stewards, confident swimmers and lifelong friendships. For all these reasons, when the 2022 program faced a staffing crisis, the Carpinteria City Council and City staff acted expeditiously and successfully to ensure that all interested local youths will be able to participate. Many hopeful participants were initially waitlisted, and we heard from those families about how important the program was to their children and their family plans for the summer. We heard you loud and clear, and we made it a top priority to resolve the issue. By adjusting our participant to lifeguard ratio to the industry standard and

“My heart goes out to all the families suffering from this atrocity. I’m holding everyone I love even closer now.” holding multiple rounds of recruitments for new lifeguards, we were able to make space for a total of 160 kids in the program. We will continue to recruit lifeguards to maximize safety. Our staff members have called every waitlisted family individually to provide them with an update and collect additional registration information. I want to commend our staff for implementing creative solutions in short order. I also want to thank parents for their patience and for demonstrating how important the program is to your children and your families. These are the things we can accomplish thanks to a caring community and dedicated city employees. Stay Well and Stay Safe. Wade Nomura is Carpinteria’s mayor.

Our kids deserve gun safety

COFFEE, CAREER AND KIDDOS T E R E S A A LVA R E Z This article discusses the recent shooting in Uvalde, Texas. For the last few weeks, I’ve felt immense heaviness following the shooting at Uvalde, Texas, where 19 students and two teachers were killed. As a mom of two little boys and a director of a child-serving organization that works closely with the Carpinteria Unified School District, it breaks my heart to think of the loss the families are feeling and the fear that will now live in the hearts of the survivors. No child should have to experience that kind of trauma. I found myself tearing up when thinking about it, and wondering how we continue to allow this to happen. Like many, I felt angry and upset, and hopeless. Instead of letting those emotions consume me, I looked for ways to get involved and ensured that I addressed what I was feeling with someone I trusted. We didn’t play the news at home and kept the kids from hearing about the tragedy. We also sent out a message to staff and offered support in case they needed to process this like many of us did. These situations are very triggering; taking care of yourself and others you care for is essential. When looking for a way to get involved, I came across a local Moms Demand Action group in Santa Barbara. They hosted a meeting the week after the shooting, and I knew I needed to be there. I shared the information with local friends I thought would be interested in learning more. When I arrived at the meeting location, I was greeted by moms wearing red and orange. They informed me that they were expecting around 250 people! Once in the meeting, I saw moms I knew and others I met for the first time. We were all there for the same reason; we cared about the safety of our children. The meeting was informative and not what I was expecting. There were mothers and others, gun owners and non-gun owners,

all together to address the same issue: sensible gun laws. I heard about the changes that Goleta Union School District and Santa Barbara Unified School District have made in advocating and informing families about gun safety. I left feeling inspired and hopeful and wanting to do more. Today, I share that the interest was such that there will be a Moms Demand Action group in our very own Carpinteria!

#Enough is Enough PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

“Enough is enough,” Carpinterians chanted last Saturday as they joined the nationwide March for Our Lives gun violence protest, urging the government to pass gun control laws. The march, held in response to last month’s school shooting in Uvalde, Texas – where 19 children and two teachers were killed – brought a lot of angry parents to the protest on Carpinteria Avenue. Children and parents alike held up signs that read “Not one more,” “Thoughts + prayers don’t stop bullets,” and “Protect children, not guns.” Other signs referenced prior mass shootings in the U.S., such as the Sutherland Springs Baptist Church shooting in November 2017, where 29 people were killed and 22 were wounded. Organizers previously told CVN they hoped to raise awareness of the issue specifically in Carpinteria, rather than joining a larger protest in Santa Barbara.

The power of sound

CVN

IN THE NATUREHOOD NANCY BARON I wake up in the morning torn between a desire to save the world, and savor the world, it makes it hard to plan the day.” —E.B. White I recently left my job of 22 years working as a communications coach for environmental scientists. It’s time to spend more time savoring the world – although I will continue conservation work. To celebrate my transition, I headed off with my husband Ken Weiss and friends Trisha and Ross Beaty for a 400 kilometer bicycle ride through the Burgundy region of France. We went expecting fabulous food and some of the world’s best wines. What we did not expect, however, was the intensity of boisterous bird song surrounding us as we pedaled through the verdant countryside of huge trees, open fields, vineyards, and trails that flank the canals that lace the region. It struck me how “the old country” is much better zoned to protect agricultural lands and open space. Houses and other developments are concentrated in the towns. There is green space in between. As a result, bird life flourishes. Each morning we were surrounded by symphonic sound. Yet, not knowing the birds of Europe, I had little idea of which birds were in the orchestra. The singers were shrouded by shrubs, tucked behind the tree leaves. Then I remembered The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Merlin Bird ID, an app. It is the Shazam of bird songs. The sound ID feature, which matches the sound it records against a database of known bird sounds, conjures up the name and photo of the singing bird like the magic of its namesake Merlin, the mythical wizard. Cornell provides the app for free. I pulled out my iPhone, turned on the Merlin app, and saw I could download the songs of the Birds of Europe. Holding up the phone, I tapped record. I saw the sounds around me appear as a sonogram on a graph as Merlin identified the singers in real time. It quickly generated a list of the birds being recorded. Each time the bird sang, its name lit up in yellow. Merlin deciphered our soundscapes: the melodious run-on of Nightingales – reminiscent of our Mockingbirds – the see-sawing songs of Chifchafs, the repetitious two notes of Great Tits. There were the coos of Eurasian Collared Doves (which have now made their way here) the high tinkling of Eurasian Skylarks displaying overhead as we pedaled by fields (recall the poem “In Flanders Fields”) and the piercing screams of House Swifts flying high for insects, then bombing between the buildings like fighter jets as they returned to their nests. And everywhere are the caroling Eurasian Blackbirds; they are actually a thrush like our American Robins, but are much more gifted singers. The pace of our bike trip slowed as the songs halted our tracks: What bird is that? Sometimes Merlin’s Sound ID came up with an unlikely suggestion like: “Snow Goose.” The app is not foolproof and birders are cautioned to verify its offerings by checking the song against their

ABOVE, LEFT: Male Red-winged Blackbirds battle with song as they vie for territory and mates. The multiple mates are cryptically brown and streaked. Females do all the work of weaving nests and raising the young. ABOVE: A Northern Mockingbird – which gets its name from copying other birds’ songs – can have a repertoire of 150 songs. They sing incessantly, even at night.

The Merlin app records and identifies the birds that are singing nearby in real time. This list was recorded during a bicycle trip in Burgundy. data base and spotting the bird, especially before adding the bird to a species list uploaded to eBird, a global database of sightings that tracks birds’ distribution and abundance. Since I have returned home, I find I’m paying more attention to the bird sounds, reflecting on the power of song and what is means to the songsters. Why do birds sing? There are myriad reasons. Birds battle with song. Song is the weapon of choice for males to defend territory from other males. Early in the morning they declare their presence on their habitat. They also sing to show strength and vigor. Females are attracted to the lustiest singers. Typically, it’s the males that produce longer and more complex vocalizations that we think of as song, while females more often have calls. Birds have a special organ called a

JOHN CALLENDER

syrinx, made up of two parts that enables them to produce complex overlapping sounds that are pleasing to our ears. But to other birds, these sounds have more nuanced meaning. According to bird expert David Sibley, “their vocal performance depends on control of the two-part syrinx which enables them to make two sounds at once,” and effectively harmonize with themselves. The song of a Red-winged Blackbird – for example “Pull-the-LEE-ver!”– has an overlay of a hum and a whistle at the same time. Sibley describes a bird’s song as “a kind of gymnastics routine, a series of elaborate jumps and the judges (potential mates and rivals) are looking for height and speed along with precision and consistency.” Paying attention to bird songs “adds another dimension to how you exist in the world,” says Christian Cooper, a New York City birder, in an upcoming National Geographic TV series.

LEFT: American Robins, like all members of the thrush family, are gifted vocalists that sing at dusk and dawn. June is the one best times of year to learn bird songs as birds are breeding. Just as we recognize the voices of those we know well, there is joy in identifying bird sounds and knowing who is nearby. Merlin can help answer that question: Who is singing that song? Our local birdwatching group, Carpinteria Birdwatchers, led by John Callender, will hold its free monthly Zoom meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 16. The meeting will include a tutorial on using Merlin Sound ID. Details about joining the meeting or viewing it afterwards are available at carpbirdwatchers.org. In an upcoming column, I will cover tips for remembering bird calls. Nancy Baron is a naturalist, and author. She and her writer husband live on a small organic avocado ranch near Carpinteria where they share their naturehood with wildlife. Nancy welcomes questions and comments at nancybaron@gmail.com.

Top high school seniors reflect on graduation, end of high school

Two of Carpinteria’s top seniors – valedictorian Kate Cooney and co-salutatorian Sage Hawley – reflected on their graduations and final high school months with CVN, offering up favorite memories and how it felt to step into their respective titles. Cooney, who will leave for the University of Oregon in September, said her favorite high school memory was running cross country at Mt. SAC during the CIF prelims. During her high school career, Cooney was a three-sport athlete and a hardworking student; she was awarded a number of accomplishments, including Santa Barbara Athletic Round table’s Carpinteria Scholar Athlete of the Year. Cooney said finding out she was valedictorian meant that all the “the work I have done throughout high school paid off.” “My favorite part of the weeks leading up to graduation was buttoning everything up at school as the days counted down to the actual ceremony,” she said. During the graduation ceremony, Cooney said beforehand it was “a bit nerve racking” to speak in front of everyone, but once she actually got up there, “it wasn’t so bad.” Salutatorian Hawley, who shared the honor with co-salutatorian Riley Wrought, told CVN that being named salutatorian brought to memory every “sacrifice I made for academics, hours of studying and homework.” “I also felt a little shocked before there were so many people in my graduating class who were stellar academics as well and were just as dedicated,” Hawley said. His favorite memories in the weeks

“I want to thank everyone who was there for me when I was at my lowest, thank you to the people who accept every part of me, flaws and all.”

–Co-Salutatorian Sage Hawley

leading up to graduation were grad night and prom – grad night with its “thrill of the roller coasters,” and prom because he was “able to wear what I wanted.” He thanked the people who helped him fix his outfit. When it came to actually speaking in front of his graduating class, Hawley said it was easy. “I have been in theater for ten years, with the audience present, so public speaking is second nature for me,” he said. As for what’s next, Hawley was upfront in his answer: “I will give everything my all and see what happens to me.” “I want to thank everyone who was there for me when I was at my lowest, thank you to the people who accept every part of me, flaws and all,” Hawley added. ––Evelyn Spence

Behavioral Wellness announces medical records data breach

In March, a staff member at Behavioral Wellness used their credentials to view client information against policy, the Santa Barbara County Department of Behavioral Wellness said Tuesday. Records show the medical information was not downloaded or printed. All clients whose information was viewed has been contacted by the department. “We regret that this incident occurred,” Toni Navarro, director for the Department of Behavioral Wellness, said. “While an event like this should never have occurred, through this investigation, we have identified areas for strengthening our system and are making necessary improvements to avoid the likelihood of this occurring again.” The department said it will conduct ongoing security audits moving forward to prevent this from happening again.

Carpinteria deputies join law enforcement torch run for Special Olympics

Last week, Carpinteria sheriff’s deputies joined the Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run, taking the “torch” from the county’s district attorney office at 2:30 p.m. The team was composed of runners from custody, detective and patrol departments, as well as Public Information Officer Raquel Zick, Zick told CVN. New Carpinteria Community Resource Deputy Brian Dickey also joined the group. The team ran along Carpinteria Avenue from Reynolds Avenue, then onto the freeway, before finally running down Bates Road, where they handed off to Ventura deputies. The torch run first began in 1981, and serves as one of the largest fundraising movements for the Special Olympics.

CARPINTERIA HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 2022: ONTO THE FUTURE

Pictured standing, valedictorian Kate Louise Cooney delivers her farewell address. PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON Surrounded by family and friends, the Carpinteria High School (CHS) class of 2022 threw their caps into the air and thunderously cheered on Thursday, celebrating the end to a tumultuous four years of high school. Although some of those four years were spent in remote learning due to Covid-19, energy was high among graduates and community members at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium last week as they took photos, heard speeches and hugged classmates; the city dealt its own hand in the celebrations, lining the streets of Carpinteria with photos of each graduate. Valedictorian Kate Cooney, along with salutatorians Sage Hawley and Riley Wrought, thanked their families and peers for their help to getting where they are, and CHS Principal Gerado Cornejo reminded the class never to forget that “Warrior spirit never dies.” At a Tuesday school board of trustees meeting, Superintendent Diana Rigby congratulated the class of 2022, stating she was “proud of their personal growth, perseverance, resilience and kindness.” “It is my pleasure to honor and recognize the distinguished Class of 2022 - 165 Graduates! They did it! For the past four years, their high school experiences were disrupted by fires, mudslides, lost lives, and now the pandemic. They missed the milestone experiences in both sophomore and junior years, yet they overcame these challenges with fierce determination and grit to achieve at high levels,” Rigby said.

No one gets off the hook with RSVPs

CVN

THE SEAWITCH SAYS AMY OROZCO Dear Amy O, This is the time of year invitations to my Fourth of July BBQ are sealed, stamped and on their way for delivery. My hold up is I’m still cheesed at some invitees who don’t RSVP. My hosting parties aren’t limited to Independence Day, and, frankly, I’m beginning to resent having to follow up with those who can’t be bothered to pick up the phone or send an email in order for me to plan for enough food and drink. They seem to have a good time when and if they do show up. How do you suggest I handle this? Signed, They Call Me The Entertainer Dear They Call Me The Entertainer, I hope you aren’t holding back on mailing the invitations to the entire guest list but rather only to the etiquette scofflaws. Otherwise, we’d have to delve into the cutting-one’s-nose-to-spite-one’s-face issue. The easy answer? Scratch the nonRSVPers from the guest list (but save that stamped envelope and put a blank mailing label over it for future use). Being “still cheesed” does not bode well for the job of being a gracious host, especially if alcohol is involved. Etiquette stalwarts Ann Landers, Miss Manners and Emily Post agree that not

RSVPing is rude and unacceptable, unless there’s been some sort of emergency, naturally. The more modern medium.com agrees, maintaining that “not replying to someone who had sent you an invitation, made a request or asked a question would be seen as a breach of the social contract. Indeed, it’s the entire basis of the RSVP, which literally comes from the French phrase “répondez s’il vous plaît,” or “please respond.” People, no one gets off the hook with RSVPs. As Miss Manners puts it, “Silence is an insult, not a response.” “Not having enough food because some slobs didn’t bother to let you know they were coming is a major embarrassment,” sums up Ann Landers. And host, therein lies the rub; if a guest has not RSVP’d by the deadline, it’s the host’s duty to pick up the phone, call the guest and ask whether or not they will be attending, according to Emily Post. Remember, two etiquette wrongs do not make a right. People, I’d like to add, don’t change your RSVP status without informing the host, i.e. do attend the function if you said you would. Picking up the phone or sending an email is the least you can do if plans change.

same volunteer will chastise me for not having enough napkins out when I have no idea where the napkins are kept. What do I do? Do I have a moral obligation to let higher-ups know the nonprofit is being robbed? Signed, Am I Helping Or Enabling? Dear Am I Helping Or Enabling?, I’m glad to hear you are pleased with your relocation to Carpinteria. Yes, the spirit of volunteerism sometimes gets lost – from businesspeople approaching the appearance of do-gooder-ery, from a purely marketing point of view to the guy whose attendance is based solely on his friend letting him in for free. You are not alone in your confusion and annoyance. If you have seen an occasional beer pass hands without any sort of transaction taking place, I advise treading lightly. Observe more, ask questions and don’t assume. Assuming someone is doing something wrong (and I’m not saying you are) may prohibit reasonable questions –

“Where is his token? Is this the only cash box?” – because you don’t want to come off as accusatory. If you are witnessing regular fleecing of the nonprofit’s funds by the same individual(s), then, “yes,” I’d say you have a moral obligation to say something. The volunteer coordinator is a good start, or if there is someone you are comfortable with in the organization, try that person. The IRS has strict guidelines governing nonprofits, and if the situation is much worse than your letter indicates, you may want to visit irs.gov. Thank you for keeping things honest. I hope you continue to find volunteering fulfilling. Former CVN editor Amy Marie Orozco loves living in Carpinteria, including all the sometime socially sticky situations happening in our seaside setting. Along with giving advice (only when asked), Amy O also edits Cannabis by the Sea Magazine. Have a question for her? Email it to news@ coastalview.com.

THROWBACK

This week’s “Throwback” by Paul Sisolak was previously published in CVN in 2007.

Linden Avenue flashback

Standing in just the right spot on Linden Avenue, equidistant are both of Carpinteria’s unchangeable natural treasures: the mountains and the sea. But in the general surroundings of Linden Avenue, Carpinteria’s lifeline connecting those two famous residents of the valley, not much else has remained the same over the years in the street’s business district. Linden, dusty and unpaved, was once home in the 19th Century to a saloon, horse hitching post, blacksmith and, towards the end of the 1800s, a brand new train depot. By the early to mid-1900s, structure of the downtown’s business district blossomed into what it resembles today, with some differences. Most notable was the 900 block of Linden, near the intersection of it and Week of 6/13/22 - 6/19/22 Carpinteria Avenue, where a practical service then would seem a novelty today. “I think it was part of the dealership,” At the Dick Daly car dealership, as seen in photo above, motorists could drive remembers Carpinteria resident Tyson away in their brand spanking new Chevy Willson in a 2007 interview, who, upon with a full tank of gas, courtesy of a pump moving here in 1955, bought a Chevy in that year’s model. situated right on the sidewalk.

Create a Tektricity Plan CVN

LET’S TALK TEK M I C H A E L AV E R Y I was inspired to visit the topic of electricity by a response in a Letter to the Editor by Shane Butler (CVN Vol. 28, No. 34) after he read my last column on Cloud computing. Before I get started with my thoughts, I want to thank Shane for reading my column. Thanks Shane! Shane is absolutely right. The building of data centers is going through the roof as the demand is created by the growth of social media, cloud computing, smart home, autonomous vehicles, smart farming, online gaming – and the list goes on and on. The demand and resultant growth will continue, but this does not necessarily equate to the escalation of greenhouse gas emissions. I know you are thinking, why not? How can this be? Tektricity. Yes, the demand for and use of electricity has increased. What is not factored in is that all of the large data centers are rapidly moving towards using 100% renewable energy and a zero carbon footprint. There is also an offset. When a computing requirement is shifted from local hardware to the cloud, remote hardware, the power use shifts too. All of this is because of technology. Technology has driven the development of alternative electricity sources, solar, wind, batteries, net metering and smart grids. And this has created Tektricity: new electricity, for the technology we use every day. Technology not only gives us the ability to create better electricity, but it also needs better electricity. Tektricity. When I say it needs better electricity, what do I mean? Microprocessor-based electronics, such as your computer, requires a level of power that you do not find when you plug into a standard electrical outlet. Most of the time this is not given a second thought, and I would like to recommend you take time to consider or reconsider. We have seen what has happened to our local power grid because of fire, floods and winds, and now we have Public Safety Power Outages. All of this leads to a power quality issues, such as sags, surges and basically unstable voltage. The potential damage to the circuits of the computer or other electronics in your home or business are inevitable if you do not take precautions and create a Tektricity Plan for yourself.

The potential damage to the circuits of electronics in your home or business are inevitable if you do not take precautions and create a Tektricity Plan for yourself.

Damage can be catastrophic, bringing on total failure, or more often than not, incremental, and appears as the degradation of performance. What do you do to create a Tektricity Plan? To better understand the why and the how let me share from early in my career in Tek. I worked for a company called Transtector. Transtector had a patented technology that utilized Silcone Avalanche Diode technology to one of the primary problems effecting microprocessor electronic systems: power surges. The Transtector surge suppressors were used by GE Medical on all their CT Scan Machines and MRI Machines. NCR, Xerox, IMB and most of the Fortune 100 were our customers, as well as computer retailers throughout the country. Transtector was eventually purchased by British Telcom. While working for them, I developed what is my Tektricity Plan. A Tektricity Plan looks at and addresses power quality issues from both the source, such as PGE, and from internally generated sources like motors, switching power supplies and resistive loads. All of these create power quality issues and disturbances as I have mentioned. You must address these at the service entry, electrical load center and at point of use – the outlet. A Tektricity Plan includes: • Alternative Clean Power Options •Power Quality Solutions •Loss of Use Calculation So, when you buy that new computer, television, stereo, microwave, etc, take a minute to think about how you will use and protect that new Tek in your life and create your own Tektricity Plan. If you have a question about technology, please reach out to me at michael@ michaeltalkstek.com or just give me a call at (805) 684-3414. I love talking Tek. Michael Avery brings decades of experience to his projects and his clients. He has served as an owner, partner, principal and employee of some of the most progressive companies in the electronic systems market sector. Additionally, he has provided professional consulting services to a multitude of leading companies in the industry, including Panasonic Technologies, CEDIA, AMX, Microsoft, GE Industrial, CompUSA and Paradise Theater.

Past Lions Club President Curtis Lopez presented awards at Canalino Elementary School and Carpinteria High School; former president Bob Stokes gave out awards at Carpinteria Middle School and at Summerland School; and member David Conway was the representative at the Aliso Elementary School ceremony. “Now that live has become more normal, the Lions Club was out again with its long time tradition of recognizing our local children,” club member Clyde Freeman told CVN.

Gus the pug offers comfort at high schools

KARLSSON

At Rincon High School, Gus the pug has been a familiar source of companionship on the campus since Fall 2014, his owner, Jerry Dahill, told CVN. Gus started working at the high school when he was eight weeks old, and beginning Fall 2019, started visiting Carpinteria High School. “Many students don’t have pets at home, so Gus becomes a surrogate pet for them. In the classroom, he helps create a sense of ‘family’ that only animals can provide. He lifts spirits when students are feeling down, provides entertainment, humor, and companionship every single day,” Dahill said. Dahill said students must follow two rules: no giving Gus “people food,” and always give him love. At Carpinteria High School, teacher Kevin Reed taught students how to make t-shirts featuring Gus. “I’m very grateful that our district and site administrators are open minded and supportive of having Gus work his magic here at CHS,” Dahill said.

Surprise 5k in Carpinteria

When Rena VanKirk first decided to meet her goal of running a 5k in Carpinteria, she roped in her three friends – Kim Fly, Lourdes Trigueros and Darci Diage – along with her. The four trained daily, keeping each other accountable to the goal. But when VanKirk posted on Facebook about her goal and the scheduled 5k date, she was met with a surprise: more than 15 other people showed up to run the 5k alongside VanKirk and her friends, making for a cloudy, but energetic morning in Carpinteria.

Gus the pug, pictured in the Carpinteria High School gym, visits the school regularly.
