Notice of Availability of Draft Environmental Impact Report and Notice of Public Meeting for Carpinteria Advanced Purification Project A Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been prepared by Carpinteria Valley Water District (CVWD) for the Carpinteria Advanced Purification Project. The EIR addresses all of the resource areas mandated by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Carpinteria Advanced Purification Project is located in Carpinteria, approximately 12 miles south of downtown Santa Barbara, in Santa Barbara County, California. The Study Area includes portions of CVWD’s service area within the City of Carpinteria and unincorporated Santa Barbara County adjacent to the City. The proposed project would construct an advanced water purification facility, injection wells, and pipelines to create up to 1.2 million gallons per day of new water suitable for groundwater recharge and later recovery for potable use. Project components include additional treatment facilities at the Carpinteria Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), pipelines, injection and monitoring wells, pump stations, tanks, and other facilities to produce advanced treated recycled water and recharge it into the Carpinteria Groundwater Basin. The Project footprint covers an up to 40-foot wide corridor that follows the conveyance pipeline, the WWTP site, 10,000 square feet at each of up to three injection well sites, 5,000 square feet at each of three monitoring well sites, and the immediate area around the existing ocean outfall. The pipelines would generally be constructed within roadway right of ways, and would cross U.S. Highway 101 at the Linden Street Overpass. The Draft EIR is available for public review: • Project Website: • Carpinteria Valley Water District Office, 1301 Santa Ynez Ave, Carpinteria, CA 93013, (805) 684-2816, Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. • Carpinteria Sanitary District Office, 5300 Sixth Street, Carpinteria, CA 93013, (805) 684-7214, Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. • Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Avenue, Carpinteria, CA 93013, (805) 684-4314, Open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

ARB votes 2-2, no recommendation either way, on the four-unit condo project proposed for 1112 Linden Ave.

ARB gridlocks on Linden condo project

At its July 11 meeting, the Carpinteria Architectural Review Board (ARB) held a preliminary review of a project to remodel and change an existing single-family dwelling and detached garage/second unit at 1112 Linden Ave. into a four-unit condominium development. One member of the board was absent, and the remaining ARB members voted 2-2 on each of two motions in a failed effort to find a majority position. The project was neither recommended for denial, per the first motion, nor continued with comments, per the second motion. Since the ARB is an advisory body, the applicant can choose to have the project reviewed by the Planning Commission without a recommendation from the ARB or schedule another hearing by the ARB with the full board present. The project entails enlarging an existing single-family residence by 251 square

feet and splitting it into two attached units; plans also divide an existing detached garage/second unit building into two units without enlarging it. Expanded parking areas and updated landscaping and utilities are proposed as part of the project. The property is an 11,085-squarefoot parcel zoned Planned Residential Development. A similar project that included five units on the property was approved by the Planning Commission last year, then appealed and denied by the City Council in November. Though the new project was reduced by one unit, ARB members commented that the project remains incompatible with the neighborhood and would exacerbate parking issues and raise safety concerns caused by vehicles entering and exiting the driveway. One member of the public who lives near the proposed project site made similar comments at the meeting.

County hits cannabis crossroads: let it grow or cap it now

Residents voice contrasting opinions to Board of Supervisors BY DEBRA HERRICK Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors convened on July 9 with an audience of nearly 200 spread across the Santa Maria chambers and Santa Barbara’s telecast. The large public turnout was owed to the meeting’s main topic: hearings on amendments to the county cannabis ordinance and regulatory structure. In the first of two hearings, supervisors voted unanimously to implement additional noticing requirements for commercial cannabis activities, expanding the number of people who must be notified when a cannabis operation submits any number of permitting applications. The second hearing was a broad consideration of amending terms to Chapter 50 of the county cannabis ordinance— cannabis business licenses. While no formal adoption would be determined at the meeting, supervisors did expect to vote provisionally on a conceptual direction. However, after several hours of public comments, a late afternoon power outage curtailed the vote, postponing further discussion and decision until the next hearing on July 16. Deputy CEO for the county, Dennis Bozanich, explained the options on the table for supervisors including implementing a countywide acreage cap for cannabis cultivation and requiring odor control systems in place during the business license application process. Supervisors could also opt to maintain existing regulations, without changes. Opponents to amending the ordinance pointed out that this was a midstream change that would disrupt the economic health of a new local business sector that has already gone to great expense to comply with the current regulatory process. Lompoc’s mayor, Jenelle Osborne, was outspoken in her support of the cannabis industry, urging supervisors “not to make any major changes” because there were many businesses already in the industry “doing everything they can to be responsible and play by the rules initially set out.” Changes midstream to land use, she argued, represent a failure on the part of the government to all agricultural producers.

City of Carpinteria asks for change

Carpinteria’s mayor, Wade Nomura, however, disagreed, taking a moderate but clear position. “I know for a fact that we have a number of responsible growers in the valley… and what we’re looking for is a balance,” said Nomura, noting three of the seven requests for amendments/enforcement that the city listed in a letter to the county supervisors on June 24: pare down the clustering of cannabis greenhouses (through cultivation acreage caps and/or minimum separation requirements); increase the buffer zone from 750 to 1,000 feet; and require public hearings before issuing conditional use permits. The city of Carpinteria has a footprint of 2.5 square miles, said Nomura, with unincorporated county agricultural land immediately surrounding, “right up to the city line,” in close proximity to schools and residential neighborhoods. Carpinteria residents like Nancy Robertson supported Nomura’s stance along with amendments to the ordinance. “I’m a senior citizen and longtime resident of the valley,” said Robertson, “I’m not against cannabis, I voted for it… But is it ok to grow cannabis right next to schools where it’s illegal to use until you’re 21?”

Headwaters employee Gabriela Martinez was among dozens of cannabis farmworkers and professionals who spoke in support of the growing industry. “I was born and raised in Carpinteria,” said Martinez, “this (cannabis cultivation) provides stable jobs to local families.” FRAN COLLIN

“Quality of life has suffered,” said another Carpinteria resident, Anna Carrillo. “There are just way too many licenses in an 8-mile perimeter... The ordinance has allowed for an over-concentration and clustering in one place.”

Cannabis ag workers speak out

Still, dozens of speakers used their time to express support of “good actors” in the cannabis industry. Cannabisrelated professionals (growers, compliance specialists, trimmers, pest control managers, etc.) expressed gratitude to the supervisors for setting up regulations that thus far had supported a thriving cannabis agricultural sector that provided them with jobs. Speakers donned stickers with the words, “Let it grow,” and shirts emblazoned with “Cannabis jobs support my family.” Many cannabis workers provided personal details. Lucia Contreras, who works in the cannabis industry in Carpinteria, said she was a single mom, “speaking from the bottom of my heart.” Contreras also said, “When you make a decision for the farmers, there are a lot of families that depend on these farms and this industry. This industry brings a lot of opportunities.” Headwaters employee Gabriela Martinez stated, “I was born and raised in Carpinteria. This (cannabis cultivation) provides stable jobs to local families.” Another Headwaters employee named Ruby said the job provided a “buen sueldo” (good wage) and “más tiempo con nuestros hijos” (more time with our kids).

CARP Growers support current regulations

Prominent Carpinteria growers (members of CARP Growers) such as Eric Edwards of Headwaters, Frances Brand of CKC Farms and Hannah Brand of Autumn Brands, Ed Van Wingerden of Everbloom and Graham Farrar of Glass House Farms, among others, spoke in support of the regulations in place (many welcoming tighter odor control enforcement) but voiced their deep concern for detrimental impacts to their businesses when regulations are changed in medias res.

Farrar went further, stating he supported a cap for the county, but noted that the county needs to make decisions and stick with them. When Carpinteria imposed its cap of 186 acres, Farrar effectively lost half of his useable acreage. Members of CARP Growers also pointed out the industry’s positive impact to the community, estimating that among their 14 member farms there are over 900 employees. The starting wage at CKC, stated Frances, is $15/hour, work is fulltime and everyone receives health insurance benefits. Edwards also stated that all of Headwaters employees receive health insurance.

Byers system, nontoxic

On the technical side, Mark Byers, owner of the odor control system used in most CARP Growers greenhouses, stated that the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District had analyzed his company’s product and found that it was safe and innocuous, that “none of the ingredients … are considered toxic air contaminants as identified by the state of


Williams responds to challenge

In her public comment period, Ann Louise Bardach of Concerned Carpinterians directly challenged 1st District Supervisor Das Williams for the comments that he made in emails to cannabis industry professionals, at one point writing to a lobbyist, “I’ll fix it” and “don’t tell anyone,” in reference to a policy on who would pay permit appeal fees (as reported in The Los Angeles Times on June 15 by Joe Mozingo). Bardach implored that this “warrants his recusal from all cannabis votes and an investigation.” Williams responded immediately that on multiple occasions he made assurances to residents, “to Anna Carrillo and to Cate School, I also said, ‘I will fix it’ … That’s why we have a cap, odor control and ban on outdoor grows (in Carpinteria) … Part of this job is being accessible to everybody and sometimes there were ideas from the cannabis industry that I agreed with, but more often it was from residents that I got ideas for controls.”

Train Station Inn is not good for town


Our city management and the citizens of Carpinteria hold a sacred trust. Carpinteria is absolutely the last city of its kind on Southern California’s coast. To open it to further development on any scale would be a sacrilege. Many Carpinteria families, second, third and some fourthgeneration natives, would never forgive what further development would do to their city. Carpinteria for years was one of Southern California’s best little weekend getaways. Over the years, with all the development that has encroached on her, she has become little more than a freeway off ramp. If you dare, try to get somewhere by car, or just stick your head out the door between six and eight on any weekday morning. Carpinteria, because of all of its charm, tradition and history will always be in the sights of some development outfit or another. I mean, it’s what they do. Now to this charming little hotel at the train station that has yet again raised its nasty little head and appears to be gaining favor: Other municipalities have shown us that the added income generated by this kind of development is soon offset by the added burdens imposed on city services, often leading to increased taxes. With such a hotel in place, there will also be proposals for more shops and businesses catered for the hotel guests’ convenience. Lastly, I wonder just who has been promised what? How much added income has been forecasted? How much have the developers said is going to be generated? If guests drive to the hotel, what impact is the added traffic going to have on what is already a pretty substantial burden? All who cherish Carp and the way of life she affords must stand against this kind of commercial development

Tax grab is hurting residents

What is going on with local government these days? From our city of Carpinteria to the county of Santa Barbara we have seen a hunt for tax dollars at the expense of quality of life for local citizens. When the tax increase was put on the ballot for Carpinteria and passed, we were told it would shore up city finances. Apparently, more is better. The Train Station Inn that was proposed by the city of Carpinteria received no proposal from developers, so they went out looking for one. All in the quest for more taxes. The cannabis free-for-all in Santa Barbara County is another prime example of a massive tax grab at the expense of residents. Both issues receive input from citizens that were concerned about the impacts. In both instances the elected

Letters “Other municipalities have shown us that the added income generated by this kind of development is soon offset by the added burdens imposed on city services, often leading to increased taxes.”

––Frank Torreano

government officials disregarded the concerns of the residents. What we have in Carpinteria and Santa Barbara county is very special. Our community deserves politicians who have the same values as our community and listen to the residents. I have been told on multiple occasions by politicians that there is a silent majority that wants what they are voting for even though there are plenty of vocal residents against what they are promoting. If the silent majority exists, they should speak up. I say listen to the not-so-silent majority and save our community before it’s too late.

Independence Day reflections for Mr. and Mrs. Thorn

I have read your letters, Mr. and Mrs. Thorn, published regularly in CVN’s letter section. For years, I have been impressed by your passion and your patriotism. I am, however, troubled by your consistently negative and derogatory comments, regardless of who is in the White House. In my 4th of July class, I asked my students what they love about our great country and what they are grateful for. Their answers brought tears to my eyes. My favorite one came from a woman who has had a stroke, has some mental illness and has difficulty speaking her thoughts. It was “Despite it all, we manage to keep together and keep it going.” As an educator in the health and wellness field, I know how detrimental it is to one’s health if one chooses to always focus on what’s wrong and to be so angry. I would enjoy a letter with your eloquent comments about what you feel is working and what you feel positive about. I believe that writing such a letter could make you feel hopeful and perhaps even

Trump, racist

Anyone still questioning whether Donald Trump is a full-blown racist need only read his three tweets from Sunday. He has irrevocably, and without shame, branded himself in front of America’s citizenry, as a racist. From this point forward no matter what he accomplishes he will be inextricably tied to a wholly xenophobic, hateful and inhumane conduct reserved for some of the worst individuals our country has seen. Referring to four female congresswomen of color who Trump wants out of America, he wrote, “You can’t leave fast enough.” “The Congresswomen,” he wrote, “who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world…” should leave. All four congresswomen are U.S. citizens, 3 of whom were born in America, while the other was a refugee and has been a citizen for almost 20 years. Trump expanded on his thoughts, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.” It’s hard to know from where exactly Trump came, but personally I think he needs to go back to his padded cell. If he believes this insanity is going to win him Independents and swing voters, then he’s an even dumber genius than I thought. It’s one thing to promote a policy, it’s another to allow the completely abandoned space inside of one’s head to take over. Racism is the ultimate cowardice because it attempts to mask the fear of

others with the comfort of ignorance. At 73 years of age, Trump has successfully solidified the isolation in his mind because he’s never been brave enough to actually confront it. It is a grotesque sickness. The American people are the cure.

Free everything, not reasonable

It was difficult listening to 20 bellyaching presidential hopefuls in the recent Democratic debates. Nary a one stressed the qualities that have made the USA the greatest and most successful country in the world: Individual hard work and personal effort to achieve success along with collective efforts to assist others in need, both internally and abroad. I have personally grown tired of the mantra that we are all victims of capitalistic greed. I have yet to hear anything close to a reasonable explanation of how all of the “free stuff” the debaters offered (medical care, education, guaranteed salary, elimination of debt, reparations) would be financed. Higher taxes on individual rich and successful corporations wouldn’t come close to covering the costs. Specifically, I’d like to have Bernie Sanders explain why single payer health care was a total failure in Vermont, his home state. I encourage good folks to do individual research. One can easily determine that Elizabeth Warren’s 2 percent wealth tax wouldn’t come close to covering her gift programs and Medicare-for-all would be a national health care disaster. At least Kamala Harris backed off her ridiculous support for eliminating private health insurance. I’m conservative. I was hoping that at least one of the 20 Democratic debaters would have had the guts to argue that common sense needs to prevail and that “free everything” is not reasonable. Maryland representative John Delany (on the far right during Debate #1) came close to doing so. In my opinion, he was, by far, the least-ridiculous in the group of 20. I don’t know much about Delany, but I hope to hear more from him. A bit of levity: Regardless of political party I will consider voting for a candidate who will put an end to robocalls.

Obituary ing House where she worked until 1978, when the factory burned down. During those years, she enjoyed bowling, fishing, BBQs and going on vacation cruises with her family. She was a great cook and will be remembered for those delicious flour tortillas that she made by scratch with lots of love. Also, during this time, she was married to Robert Razo, with whom she shared three wonderful children. Later in life she met Arthur Robles while dancing the night away at the Four Winds in Santa Barbara. With Arthur, she eventually moved to Mammoth where she was able to spend a lot of time doing what she loved and fishing. While in Mammoth she also discovered a new interest in going to casinos in the neighboring cities. This joy in casino gambling on the slot machines she carried with her throughout her life, even after moving back to Lompoc and then to Carpinteria. A big thank you to Yvette Duarte and her nursing staff at Valle Verde. The unwavering care and loving support given to Mary and her family during her last days is greatly appreciated. Funeral services will be held at the Carpinteria Cemetery on Friday, July 26, at 3 p.m. There will be a reception to follow to celebrate her life at the Carpinteria Woman’s Club. Funeral arrangements have been made by Welch-Ryce-Haider.

Adjusting to the new Carpinteria CVn

a monthly muse melinda wittwer My husband and I bought our first home in Carpinteria in 1974 for less than $30,000. We thought we would never leave this area, but about 16 years ago we went a little crazy and moved to Ojai, a charming small town with lots of quirkiness (if that’s a word). We kept our Carpinteria house because we knew we wanted to eventually return to our town by the sea, and this May the inevitable happened. All our belongings made the trip back to the coast along with our two rescued cats. But, surprise, things are not the same in Carp. Over the last 30 years, there has been a big push to keep Carpinteria a small, friendly, beach town. I have always known that despite our best efforts no matter how hard we try to keep things the same, change comes. Just think how many local businesses have closed over the past few decades. Think of how many condos have been built. Think of how water has become such a precious commodity. Think of how the price of even a small house in Carpinteria continues to go up and up, beyond the reach of many local workers. Think of the decline in our school population. And think of the changes in our agricultural industry. Most of these changes are well-documented and positive such as making the Bluffs a nature reserve and affordable housing projects and the electric trolley and efforts to aid the homeless. But I’m having a bit of a problem adjusting to the skunky smell that floats up from several greenhouses along Foothill Road and enters my open windows and permeates my house and yard. Granted, this does not happen every day nor is the smell always intense, but it certainly is something I would rather have disappear as this obnoxious odor is definitely impacting the quality of my life. Over the last several months the citizens of Carpinteria have been taking sides, for or against the growing of cannabis in the Carpinteria Valley. People have attended meetings, written letters and contacted supervisors. This issue is dividing friends and families and is threatening the stability of our longestablished agricultural industry. Cannabis has positive medicinal uses and is legal in California, but it would certainly have been useful if the permitting process would have set strict limits from the outset on how close a cannabis greenhouse could be to housing and to schools. And whatever it takes to control the odor needs to not only be obligatory but also enforced for all growers of this product. Personally, I’m not questioning the right of cannabis growers to grow and market their product, as long as all per-

I have been informed that the odor “scrubbers” that can help control the odor issue are expensive. I also am aware that some growers have already installed scrubbers in their greenhouses. But what about the rest of the cannabis growers?

mits and requirements are adhered to. But I don’t think growers should be able to infringe on my right to be able to enjoy my home without an offensive aroma assaulting my senses. If the growers truly want to be good members of the Carpinteria community, they will have to solve the odor problem. It is my understanding that growing cannabis is a fairly lucrative endeavor. I have been informed that the odor “scrubbers” that can help control the odor issue are expensive. I also am aware that some growers have already installed scrubbers in their greenhouses. But what about the rest of the cannabis growers? They have the right to run a legal business and make money. But the students in our schools, local families in their homes and the tourists that visit the World’s Safest Beach have the right to enjoy clean-smelling air. Carpinteria is unique. It’s a special locality that is one of the best places in the world to live. It has an almost perfect climate and is surrounded by striking scenery. And it will continue to change, as all things do. Let’s just hope that whatever the changes are, they’re ones we can live with. Melinda Wittwer first moved to Carpinteria in 1972 and taught mostly junior high students in Oxnard during her 25-year career. Now retired, she enjoys pottery, writing, books and travel.

Dear Sexy, Good hygiene is crucial to a loving relationship. Remind him that you feel more sexy when he is fresh, clean and fit. People who let themselves go are usually depressed. Urge him to get a physical. If he needs to lose weight and get fit again, then the doctor will tell him and possibly prescribe something to help. It’s not helpful for you to nag. Is he resentful of the burden of supporting the family? Do you help? Be attentive and show appreciation for his hard work.

Dear WorKing, That’s a delicate situation. As long as the relationship goes well, I would not say anything. Hopefully your boss is professional and discrete. Hopefully she keeps her private life and business life separate. If your father seems happy, you would not want to spoil it for him. Wish them well when they mention it to you. Don’t go looking for trouble. On the other hand, if you work for a big company, consider moving to a different department. Tell your boss that you don’t want to interfere in any way.

CVLL hosts All-Stars tourney BY ALONZO OROZCO

The Carpinteria Valley Little League (CVLL) took center stage on the local baseball scene this summer, hosting the District 63 11-U All-Stars tournament for the first time in 15 years. The league, which started in 1997, organized and ran the double elimination tourney from June 24 to July 5 at El Carro Park. Goleta Valley South claimed the crown, shutting out Santa Paula 8-0 on the final day of competition. CVLL Vice President Dave Crooks was on hand to umpire the championship game. “We call him our ‘founding father’ of Carpinteria Valley Little League,” said Lori Bowles, marketing/publications and safety officer for the organization. Bowles recalled meeting with Crooks back in the early ‘90s when they initially hatched a plan to bring Little League baseball to Carpinteria. According to Bowles, at that time, local youth baseball was being run by the Carpinteria Boys Club (now the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County, Carpinteria Unit). “They (the Boys Club) were in need of a little better organization because the numbers (of players) were so large,” explained Bowles. “So, a few of us parents got together to make a go of it,” she added. Among the parents involved were Rick and Christie Joy, Mike Damron and Andy Damron with Crooks becoming the group’s first president. Last season, the league grew to nearly 300 players, and the CVLL Board decided to make a bid to host the District 63 11U Playoffs. “There are a lot of details that have to go on above and beyond the regular season, and to make sure that the facilities are ready, and you have enough personnel,” said Nuh Kimbwala who, along with Tina Contreras, currently serves as the CVLL’s co-president. Kimbwala also took on the role of tournament director

while Contreras agreed to the task of being tournament organizer. “Field Crew Manager Bill Holmes did a phenomenal job of getting the fields ready,” explained Contreras whose father Ron Contreras also made sure they were up to Little League specifications on a daily basis. Although the host team lost the first two games of the tourney, and were quickly eliminated from the field of play, Kimbwala was not too concerned. “We have all these volunteers, serving all this time to teach these kids how to develop way beyond the baseball field,” said Kimbwala. Dave Quenzer is the chief umpire, and Dalton Bowles (Lori’s son) and Gigi Van Zanten also volunteer their time. Being a nonprofit, the CVLL is operated exclusively by volunteers whether it be the coaches, umpires or the cook flipping burgers at the “Patty Shack,” the league’s snack bar. Over a decade ago the league adopted the Challenger Division for kids with special needs. Led by manager Cindy Rief, kids with disabilities are paired with players from other divisions referred to as “buddies,” who help guide them in the field and around the bases. The teams rotate for each game on the schedule, giving all the kids a chance to “buddy-up” with the Challenger players. CVLL has also formed partnerships with nearby colleges. Its players participate in baseball camps at UCSB and at the beginning of the season, Warriors Head Coach Robert Ruiz leads a clinic at Westmont College. “We have become such good friends through Carpinteria Valley Little League, and it seems to be long-standing relationships,” explained Lori.

A little something for everyone


IT’S ALL SURFING CHRISTIAN BEAMISH We suspected that the various $50-perhead “adventure tours” on offer near Lake Arenal in Costa Rica would leave us feeling confined, under-inspired and ripped off. So, we asked the nice lady at the hotel where she and her family went for outings, and she told us about a river spot just past the second bridge on the south end of the lake, and we gathered a picnic lunch and set off in our rental car. Finishing the last of the BBQ chicken leftovers, we watched a squad of helmeted tourists led by guides float down to us in inner-tubes then stagger onto the sandbank where we’d spread a towel. I asked a young woman who walked by how the trip had been and she said “Nice, but kind of awful too,” as if to confirm our thoughts on organized adventures. Naturally, we couldn’t keep Josephine or Miles out of the river, and I stayed within an arm’s reach of them as the swift current seemed more dangerous than the ocean in the way it sluiced and spilled and pulled down into dark pools. But soon the four of us were boulder hopping downstream in our bathing suits, with no destination other than deeper into the forest and farther from the road. The stream broadened out over a gravel bottom four- or five-hundred yards down, and Josephine thought it was great fun to let the current sweep her along before trudging back up to make the run again. The greens of the trees, with orchids growing in natural baskets of moss on

Have rental car, will scour the countryside for waves. the trunks, the vines and the understory, iridescent butterflies in shafts of sunlight streaming down: the rainforest is a mysterious and mesmerizing environment. And what was that movement over there in those heavily swaying branches? A troupe of howler monkeys going about their business, 50-feet over the forest floor. We sat together on the opposite bank, amazed by the place we found ourselves in, and I like to think it’s a family memory we’ve made that pulls us closer to one another and to the natural world as well. Enchanting as the highland river and forest environment is, I was keen to get down to the coast and put our surfboards to use (for which we paid the airline $300 in excess baggage fees). The winding twolane highway, with heavy mist drenching the windshield and slicking the road, made for a long drive to the swampy

mangrove town of Puntarenas where a maximum-security prison casts an ominous presence. We had a couple of beers and sodas that evening amongst some rough-looking denizens of a beachfront bar, but there was no trouble at all and the lightning flashing over the water in the muggy heat after nightfall lent a faraway feel to the experience. Our plan was to catch the 5 a.m. ferry across the Gulf of Nicoya the following morning, and after a forgettable dinner we turned in at a shabby hotel—working ports sharing a resemblance the world over. Josephine and Miles, seven- and four-years-old respectively, handled the pre-4 a.m. wake up like a couple of veterans, taking in the long line of trucks and cars, the people milling about on the waterfront and the general confusion with a neutral gaze. I was crestfallen to discover that ticket sales were cash only, and that the ATM (which didn’t accept my bank card anyway) wouldn’t open until 9 a.m.—a very long four-and-a-half hours off. The fellows at the adjacent café would not entertain the idea of a cash advance, and fresh out of ideas—Natasha and the kiddos stuck in the car, unable to board the ferry—I walked across the street to another café just setting up for the day. I explained my situation to the man, not expecting anything, and he said to me “Let’s do a cash advance…” Just like that, Ricky Ricardo (Ricky Ricardo Tours & Travels) in Puntarenas—who, from a mere five minutes in his presence, I know would organize a wonderful experience for travelers in Costa Rica—saved our morning and got us on our way. The stunning rainforest environment continues to the Pacific Coast of the Mal Pais region, where we sat out a truckers’ strike that closed off the highway for six hours after the ferry crossing by taking a dirt track down to a palm-lined beach. A local man insisted we take his offering of fresh coconuts that we promised to pay for (and did) on our way back a week later, and we swam and bodysurfed in the balmy sea. The truckers’ roadblock continued through the afternoon, and we asked another local lady if we could park in her mango orchard to get out of the sun on the highway-turned-parking lot, which resembles the avocado orchard we live in here, and made a good day of it despite the delay. Travel—exposing our children to new

places and culture, surfing good beach break waves in a tropical clime, meeting people from around the world—has undeniable benefits. But I cannot overlook the impact of it anymore, either. The airports are black holes of concentrated exhaust, tens-of-thousands of vehicles coming and going continually, the longhaul flights spewing jet fuel across the sky all over the world. The lingering injustices of the past (as with my family history against Taranaki Maori) dovetail with the environmental degradation of the present—both mere “side-effects” of middle-class acquisition, whether it be land to settle on or a tropical family vacation. It’s a harsh, perhaps reductive assessment I’m making but the bottom-line truth of it remains: Our holiday making significantly contributes to the environmental crisis (and yes, it is a crisis), and colonization has had lasting, negative impacts on indigenous peoples the world over (not to mention laying the groundwork for extractive, environmentally destructive industries as well). So, what is a worried little liberal guy to do? Travel less by jet aircraft, for one (we’re on a roughly once-every-threeyears schedule). The website myclimate. org, out of Zurich, enables travelers to calculate the carbon footprint of their flights. According to their processor our trip to Coast Rica resulted in seven tons of C02 released into the atmosphere, which we could “offset” for about $200 for tree planting in Nicaragua, or cleaner-burning cook stoves in India. (I’ll look into it after I settle up with the credit card company, and perhaps that’s my “bottom line,” right there.) As for the well-being of Taranaki Maori, the Ngati Ruanui with whom my greatgreat grandfather and uncle clashed in 1868, I cannot comment because I do not know. But there is something profound in the fact of the world’s complete transformation in 150 short years—vast centuries of experience seemingly erased forever by the digital-scape of our screen-centric existence. There might be a through-line yet though, a way by which we people of the new millennium forge a better path. It will involve a lot of reading to understand the traditions of those who came before us, and most crucially it will involve a new way of seeing that is less about attainment than it is acceptance.

Meet the Junior Guards of the Week by LeiLAni SiLvA

Each week, the city of Carpinteria’s summer Junior Guards program highlights standout campers who excel in athletic challenges and demonstrate exceptional character.

Week #1

From top to bottom and left to right are Week #1 Junior Guards of the Week: izzy Scott, David Aquistapace, Alex De Leon, Ainslee Alexander, Taylor Classen and izzy Gragg.

Week #3

From top left to bottom right are Week #3 Junior Guards of the Week: Manny verdugo, Asher Smith, Chase Glasgow, Tallulah Koepenick, Capri Acquistapace and nathan Holmstrom.

Izzy Scott - Izzy has been a positive contributor to C team and overall program. She is a role model for all the Cs and completes each task with a smile. David Aquistapace - David never complains and is a great athlete all around. He crushes the Run-Swim-Runs due to his great swimming and running abilities. Alex De Leon - Alex comes into JGs with a smile every day and never says no to a workout. He completes every activity with the best of effort and encourages those around him. Ainslee Alexander - The A group is very lucky to have Ainslee Alexander this year. She is an inspiration and respectable competitor. She is an amazing athlete who pushes herself whether it be during the

daily workouts or competition events. At Semana Nautica, she placed first in the long run and at Carp Comp she placed first in the distance paddle by a landslide. Taylor Classen - Taylor Classen is a new A this year and has provided the group with a much-needed strong swimmer. She placed first in the long swim and Run-Swim-Run at Semana Nautica. Taylor never complains about jumping in the water and encourages the team as a whole with her speedy aquatic abilities. Izzy Gragg - Izzy is a newcomer to JGs and has been stellar in every aspect. She has been leading the runs and charging through the swims, while also remaining positive at every moment.

Manny Verdugo - Manny probably gives the most effort out of any JG on the beach. He is motivational to his teammates, always gives his best effort and is willing to participate in the paddle relay as a last-minute substitute. His effort and attitude exemplify what a JG should strive for. Asher Smith - Asher is a talented B swimmer and is never afraid of a challenge. Unlike most JGs, he loves swim workouts and is always the first one in and out of the water. His talent and selfmotivation are inspiring to his teammates and instructors. Chase Glasgow - Chase is a reliable competitor with a great attitude and kind spirit. He is one of the fastest A-boy paddlers and always tries his best when participating in workouts and competition events. Chase, without failure, comes to Junior Guards ready to tackle whatever

Week #2

From left to right are Week #2 Junior Guards of the Week: Owen Reeves, ellie Lou Olvera, Steven bengry, Andreas McClintock, Diesel Slade and Malaya Morente. Owen Reeves - Owen shows up to JGs every day with a smile and an enthusiastic “good morning.” He plays a big part in the run relay team and is one of the top paddlers.

Ellie Lou Olvera - Ellie Lou has demonstrated an extraordinarily encouraging attitude this JG season. She always encourages others to do their best and will cheer them up when they’re down.

Steven Bengry - Steven is a very important contributor to the A group. He never complains and is always eager to accomplish whatever challenging workouts come his way. His instructors can always

comes his way. Tallulah Koepenick - Tallulah gives her best effort in everything we do. She always has a smile on her face when she’s doing push-ups and JG jumping jacks. She competed on the paddle relay team as the anchor and crushed it. Capri Acquistapace - Capri never wears a frown. She is always happy to do whatever is asked of her with a cheery smile that lights up the beach. Her effort and good attitude motivate her teammates and instructors to take on life with positivity. Capri is a wonderful swimmer and helps keep other junior guards in check when it comes to water-related activities. Nathan Holmstrom - Nathan missed the first week of JGs because he was at another camp. On the first week that he came back, he did a long run and won first place. At the Carpinteria Competition, he was the first Carpinteria boy to come in. He demonstrates great behavior and is a role model to the other Cs.

count on him to execute with 100 percent effort and contagious optimism. Andreas McClintock - Andreas has been an incredible JG with his motivational attitude and paddling skills. He gives every ounce of effort he can and remains positive even after the hardest of workouts. Diesel Slade - Diesel is an outstanding athlete with the gift of speed. As our fastest sand sprinter, it is no surprise that he placed second in flags and was crucial in the boy’s run-relay team for Carp Comp. More important than quick feet, Diesel, despite his strong disliking of all things water-related, has developed an awesome attitude towards ocean workouts. Malaya Morente - Malaya is one of the quieter JGs, but she’s also a top paddler, runner, swimmer and flags player. She excels in everything she does with a smile and is a crucial member of the JG Bs.

Trailing the Bluenose with CVN

Steve and Roberta Christiansen made a chilly autumn trip to Nova Scotia, battened down for weather and leaving behind a long hot summer in Carpinteria. One of Canada’s three Maritime Provinces, Nova Scotia was first inhabited by the Mi’kmaq people. The province is renowned for its maritime history, including the development of the Bluenose schooner, and being the birthplace of Captain Joshua Slocum, the first man to sail singlehandedly around the world.

A well-informed opossum

Public Works maintenance worker Tim Gray thought he’d catch up on the week’s news in the city’s breakroom when he discovered that an opossum had beat him to the handy copy of Coastal View News.

Festival brings carnival fun Photos by Robin KaRlsson

From left, Jade ornelas, Penny Rowe, Molly hoon and Jacob Ornelas wrangle their inflatable treasures, no doubt looking forward to their next festival adventure ride.

Next to the Avocado Festival, St. Joseph Catholic Church’s annual summer Festival is Carpinteria’s biggest community event of the year. Carnival rides, food vendors and music acts liven-up the church property for three days each July, and this year was no exception. Parents do well to plan ahead and purchase unlimited ride wristbands for their kids to spin, twirl and go inverted all weekend. The beer tent also awaits thirsty festival patrons.

City of Carpinteria

From the CITY MANAGER Dave Durflinger

Summer Homework

Summer is a great time to relax and enjoy all that Carpinteria has to offer. In this issue of City Hall News we share information about important work, which helps to make Carpinteria safe and attractive for visitors and residents during the summer months and beyond. City Hall is constantly seeking to improve public safety and is pleased to introduce its new Community Resource Deputy, James Carovano. James will be working cooperatively with the School District, neighborhood and community groups, and merchants, with an eye toward public safety. Recent earthquakes are a reminder of the importance of being prepared in the event of a disaster and we’ve included information about preparedness learning opportunities for your family and business. Also, see our Summer Safety Tips and an important Bicycle Safety reminder. We’re also pleased to introduce Public Works Supervisor Robert Howard who

has primary responsibility for the upkeep of the City’s network of public streets, including pavement, sidewalks and street trees. We’ve included in this issue updates on several street maintenance and capital projects. Whether travelling by vehicle, bicycle or as a pedestrian, this work will make it easier to get around Carpinteria supporting local business and encouraging active lifestyles. And, speaking of active lifestyles, we’ve included a full page dedicated to myriad recreation opportunities for you to take advantage of this summer. Carpinteria’s healthy, attractive natural and built environments are part and parcel to it being a great place. Information on how the City is working to reduce the amount of plastics in the waste stream and environment and protecting local creeks and water quality is also featured in this issue. Additionally, there is information about planning work that aims to promote new investment while ensuring that development contributes to making Carpinteria an even better place. Of course, we never lose sight of the fact that supporting people is a critical role of local government. A willingness to work together and support each other to achieve things bigger than ourselves is essential to a successful community. Our Community Partner Award winner, Relay for Life of Coastal Santa Barbara County, is a great example of people doing work that serves to strengthen our community. See, not all summer homework is a bummer!

Meet Carpinteria's New Public Works Supervisor

The City of Carpinteria is pleased to introduce new Public Works Supervisor Robert Howard. Robert, who joined the City in May, spent the last 20 years working for the City of Santa Paula’s Public Works Department. “We’re thrilled to have Robert leading our hardworking Public Works crews,” said Carpinteria’s Public Works Director John Ilasin. “He brings the right mix of leadership experience and infrastructure expertise. The City of Carpinteria is lucky to have him.” Maintaining the health and safety of Carpinteria’s street trees is a high priority for Robert. He also takes pride in keeping roadways clean and well maintained, and he looks forward to helping the City improve its streets thanks to new funding from Measure X. Community members and City staff have been very welcoming, Robert said, and he is pleased with the dedication shown by the Public Works crews that he manages. “These guys are hard workers and committed to keeping the City looking good,” he noted. Robert was born in Oklahoma but has lived in Santa Paula since 1969. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, hiking, camping and barbecuing. He’s married to his high school sweetheart, and they have two grown children.

City Welcomes New Community Resource Deputy

Special Duty Deputy James Carovano was recently selected to fill the City of Carpinteria Community Resource Deputy position which was effective July 1. Special Duty Deputy Carovano has been with the Sheriff ’s Office since July 2014 and is currently assigned to the Coastal Patrol Bureau. He is a military veteran who served with the United States Coast Guard and was previously employed as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer assigned to Yosemite National Park. James is a certified Field Training Officer and has completed several courses that will assist him in his new role as Community Resource Deputy. He is very much a proponent of Community Oriented Policing and be attending various events within the Carpinteria community. Patrolling various areas of the City on foot and bicycle will be part of his daily tasks. Additionally, he will be available to our local schools to provide that necessary relationship between students, staff and parents with local law enforcement. James is married, has three children and resides with his family in Ventura County. He looks forward to taking the restored position of Community Resource Deputy for the City of Carpinteria to new heights and enhancing the relationship between the community and law enforcement that serve them on a daily basis.

City Honors Relay for Life with Community Partner Award

Relay for Life brings hundreds of people together annually to raise awareness and funds for the battle against cancer. To recognize the hardworking volunteers behind this community event, the City of Carpinteria has chosen Relay for Life of Coastal Santa Barbara County to receive its Summer Community Partner Award. Relay for Life events are held around the nation to benefit the American Cancer Society. Carpinteria’s Relay, which was launched in 2005, has raised over $800,000 for cancer research and programs that support cancer patients and their families. In Santa Barbara County, Relay for Life proceeds have helped to fund the Look Good Feel Better program and provide transportation to cancer treatments, free or discounted hotel stays during treatment, a 24/7 hotline and counseling services. The Relay for Life is a walking relay that takes place over 24 hours and honors cancer survivors, sufferers, loved ones lost to the disease, and their friends and families. Teams representing businesses, nonprofits, or groups of friends and families raise money leading up to and during the event. Activities held throughout the Relay kick off with the Survivor & Caregiver Lap and then include live bands and DJ music, free food, and the Luminaria Ceremony. Several years ago, Carpinteria’s passionate Relay organizers introduced the first ever Relay Paddle Out, which now takes place annually during the Closing Ceremony at Linden beach. In recent years, they added another uniquely Carpinteria element: a large illuminated “HOPE” sign on Franklin Trail that can be seen throughout Carpinteria Valley on the night of the Relay. This year’s Relay will be held on Saturday, July 20 starting at 10 a.m. at Aliso School, 4545 Carpinteria Ave. The public is invited to stop by and walk a lap, listen to bands, and honor loved ones affected by cancer. Anyone interested in forming a team, sponsoring the event, or making a donation should contact Nancy Garrison at or Sally Green at

City Provides New Bicycle Safety Postcard

Summertime is bike riding season, but don’t forget that bicycle fun starts with safety. Riding bicycles on the sidewalk is against the law. Since April, Code Enforcement staff have made 49 contacts for riding bikes on the sidewalk in the Downtown T. The City of Carpinteria has printed a new bicycle safety postcard with rules of the road and tips to ensure both cyclists and pedestrians remain safe. Carpinteria State Beach staff members are distributing the postcards to campers to help ensure that visitors as well as residents understand the rules. Postcards are also available at the City of Carpinteria’s downtown kiosk. Bike safely, Carpinteria!

Bicycle Safety Tips

Obey the Rules of the Road: DO NOT RIDE BIKES ON SIDEWALKS. Obey traffic signals and stop signs Be Predictable: Ride on the right with traffic; check behind you and signal for turns Be Visible: Wear bright clothing, use a white headlight and a red rear light at night Check Your Bike Before You Ride: ABC quick check (Air, Brakes, Chain, Quick Release) Be Kind to Drivers/Walkers: Be courteous, give respect, get respect

New Projects Proposed for Downtown Carpinteria

New Housing Opportunities

On July 15 the Architectural Review Board, Planning Commission, and City Council held a special Concept Review meeting related to two prominent Downtown projects, 700 Linden Avenue and Maple Avenue. The City staff reports and the meeting video for both proposed projects can be reviewed on the City’s website, carpinteria., under City Council Meeting Agendas and Reports:

700 Linden Avenue

Under the current concept, the five existing buildings totaling just over 20,000 square feet on the east side of the 700 block of Linden Avenue between Seventh and Eighth Streets would be reconfigured with a central plaza, restaurants and commercial buildings. The largest structure, previously home to Austin’s Hardware, would primarily be used for restaurant use, including opening a covered patio under the existing roof along Linden Avenue. Interior seating and additional retail space would augment the restaurant use. Large folding garage doors would allow for the structure to open directly to the central plaza. The existing smaller buildings would serve primarily as retail and restaurant uses, small in scale and adding to the local variety of cuisine and retail shops.

StREEtS, tREES & SidEWALKS John Ilasin, (805) 880-3402 Public Works Director/ City Engineer

The Seahouse project located at 1300 Cravens Lane is now under construction, and includes the creation of 31 new residential condominium units on a 3.89-acre site. Pursuant to the City’s Inclusionary Housing Ordinance, four of the new units will be set aside as affordable units designated for the upper-moderate income category.

Sanctuary Beach

The proposed Sanctuary Beach project, located at 4295 Carpinteria Avenue, would involve construction of four condominiums in two buildings. The proposal includes four three-bedroom units of approximately 2,300 square feet each. Building permits are anticipated to be issued soon.

The 2.7-acre Faith Lutheran Church property at 1335 Vallecito Place would be subdivided into seven separate parcels to accommodate the existing church, existing parsonage, and five new residences to be constructed on the southern portion of the site. The five new homes proposed would be one- and two-story structures ranging from 2,268 to 2,831 square feet, on newly created lots ranging in size from 7,516 to 10,868 square feet. The existing parsonage would receive exterior changes to match the new homes. Additionally, upon approval of this application, the parsonage residence would no longer be restricted for use as a church parsonage and would be offered for sale as an affordable unit, pursuant to the City’s Inclusionary Housing Ordinance. The project has been approved by the Planning Commission and must record its condominium map before building permits can be issued.

Don’t Be a Victim of Summertime Crime As summertime reaches its peak so does household property crime. Here are some important safety tips to make your summer safe and enjoyable. Household property crimes occur at a higher rate during the summer than during any other time of year, here are some helpful “Safety Tips”.

Vacation Tips

• Lock you room and remember not to give out your room number or invite strangers into your hotel room. • Be friendly but be vigilant. Watch for and report any suspicious behavior. • Plan your route – stay within well-traveled routes and walk in groups. There is

safety in numbers. • Keep your belongings secure – Purses should be securely closed, backpacks zipped, and wallets should be kept in your front pocket. When dining in restaurants, do not hang your purse or backpack on the back of your chair. • If your child or teen will be left alone a significant amount of time, have him/her check in with you if they plan to leave and tell you when they plan to return.

Vehicle Safety Tips

• Always lock your doors and roll up your windows when you leave your vehicle. • Do not leave valuables in the vehicle. If

you must leave valued possessions in your vehicle keep them out of sight or hidden in the truck. • Before you get into your vehicle, check the backseat and around the vehicle. Lock your doors once inside the vehicle. These prevention tips are simple steps to avoiding summertime crime. Have a great summer.

Food and beverage providers have until January 1, 2020 to comply with the new regulations. The City will conduct an extensive education campaign to help businesses understand the regulations and work with the community to achieve 100% compliance by the January 1, 2020 deadline. For more information contact City Environmental Coordinator Erin Maker at, (805) 880-3415.

The Carpinteria Avenue Pedestrian Safety Improvements Project was recently completed and is now open for use. The new sidewalks, curbs, and gutters between Dump Road and 5885 Carpinteria Avenue (Tee Time Driving Range) are designed to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety and access. The improvement project also included repair of a portion of the Carpinteria Creek Bike Path between Via Real and Carpinteria Avenue that was damaged in last winter’s storms. Also, the Carpinteria Creek Bike Path is now open.

Local Streets Undergo Maintenance

The City’s 2019 Pavement Maintenance Project included several local streets which received slurry treatment, crack sealing, and re-striping. The project is anticipated to be complete in July.

City Hall Remediation and Renovation

Work on City Hall is well underway, including various interior and exterior building improvements and abatement of asbestos-containing materials. Construction of electrical, plumbing, and mechanical improvements is in progress. The renovations are anticipated to be complete by December 2019.

Bus Stop Relocation Underway

The Carpinteria Avenue and Elm Avenue Bus Shelter Relocation Project seeks to improve pedestrian safety around the two bus stops located at the intersection of Carpinteria Avenue and Elm Avenue. The project includes:

• Relocation of the eastbound serving bus stop at the intersection of Carpinteria Avenue and Elm Avenue to the intersection of Carpinteria Avenue and Holly Avenue • Removal of a crosswalk on Carpinteria Avenue, and improvement of curb ramps between the new and old bus stop locations • Replacement of the bus shelter located at Linden and Carpinteria Avenue with a repainted and repaired shelter. The project is anticipated to be completed in August.

City Plans for Next Round of Road Repair

In July, the City is scheduled to start the design phase of the work for its 2019 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, which will rehabilitate approximately 108,900 square feet of local roadways. As concurred by the City Council at its May 28 meeting, the selected streets are Carpinteria Avenue (between Santa Ynez and Sandyland Cove Road), Eighth Street (between Elm and Maple avenues), and Nipomo Drive (between Linden Avenue and Tomol Drive). The selection was based on the City’s Pavement Management System, which sets priorities for maintenance based on pavement condition data. The sections of pavement for the project currently rank as poor condition, which is below the City’s average. The tentative start of construction is fall 2019. Funding is from Measure X, Measure A, and Senate Bill 1 (Road Maintenance & Repair Account).
