Old Town Fiesta brings colorful delights

Tired of his high-water bill and looking to be ecofriendly, Gerald Enthoven tore up his front lawn and replaced it with drought-tolerant plants.

A “coastal desert landscape,” right around the corner BY EVELYN SPENCE

Head down Via Real and peak around the corner onto Sentar Road, and you might catch a glimpse of large cacti and blooming succulents lining the front yard of a blue house – a “coastal desert landscape,” as put by the house’s owner, Gerald Enthoven. Enthoven, who boasts one of the lowest water bills in the Carpinteria Valley, said he ripped up his entire front lawn two years ago and – tired of the highwater bills and water waste – designed his own piece of desert paradise, right there in his front lawn. “(Our) water bill slashed in half,” he emphasized, gesturing to the collection of cacti, succulents and colorful decorations spread across his front yard, atop decomposed granite and gravel. “Nothing changed inside the house.” He points out a large metal dinosaur decoration, perfect for the “Jurassic” landscape. Enthoven said it took him three weeks to tear up his grass lawn, and that he designed the landscape himself, inspired by trips to the desert. He put a “weed cloth” underneath the granite and gravel to prevent weeds from sprouting up. “Fifteen years ago, I didn’t care… about the drought, I didn’t think there

was water waste,” he said, noting that his family has lived in that house since 1983. But, inspired by the high bill and the need to do better for the environment, he set out to change that. Since pulling out his grass and planting cacti and succulents, Enthoven said people walking by have taken pictures of the outside of his house and knocked on his door, asking him to design their yards. His advice? It’s easy to pull off. “There is a little bit of a cost initially, with the plants, but it slashed my water bill,” he said. “It’s worth it... I’m very proud.” He also showed off his backyard to July 28, 2022 CVN, noting the expanse of green is actually AstroTurf, built to withstand the rough and tumble of his large dog and his seven grandkids. He started with renovating the backyard to be environmentally friendly five years ago as a passion project, before tackling the front. His house, he said, is built for parties and fun – and the best of all, he doesn’t have to worry about his yard being ruined, or the high bills that come with a grass lawn. “Two years ago, this was all grass,” he said. “All lawn – a waste of water.”

Carpinteria’s new coach Greg Novak is ready and excited for the upcoming season.

Warriors’ new volleyball coach gets girls ready for season WORDS BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

Carpinteria’s newest coach, Greg Novak, has spent the last two decades coaching volleyball, but he didn’t even “catch the bug” and start playing himself until he was well into his 20s. A friend had taken him to Santa Barbara’s East Beach, a beach volleyball hotspot, and after his first serve, he fell in love. “I was there playing sunup to sundown,” he said. It was there at East Beach where he

met his wife, fellow volleyball head KC Collins. In 2001, the couple married and moved from Santa Barbara to Carpinteria, where they have both been coaching at the club and high school levels ever since. BRE#01383773 After helping out his wife, who was coaching Santa Barbara High’s frosh/ soph squad at the time, Novak started coaching with Santa Barbara Volleyball Club’s team, and eventually moved

He found some success, clinching the girls volleyball CIF title in 2009, before leaving to take over a much smaller program at Cate School.

Regina Ruiz rises in rank at St. Vincent’s

Earlier this month, St. Vincent’s Santa Barbara named Carpinteria resident, Dr. Regina Ruiz, as chief development officer. Ruiz is the first to hold this position in the service agency’s 164-year history. Ruiz, who has an EdD in Organizational Change and Leadership from University of Southern California, joined St. Vincent’s in 2019 as vice president of development and marketing. In her new role, Ruz will craft a targeted development, marketing and communication strategy and oversee all of St. Vincent’s public relations. Ruiz’s recent doctoral dissertation, “A Strategy to Thrive During a Crisis for Nonprofit Organizations,” published by USC Library, includes qualitative research and interviews with nonprofit leaders in Santa Barbara. Ruiz also has a background in journalism, having Dr. Regina Ruiz anchored and reported at television stations across the country, including NBC in San Diego. She also worked at ESPN writing sports highlights and at the Olympics in Greece with NBC Sports. In addition, Ruiz earned a MS in Broadcast Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Ruiz said she is eager to continue the tradition of caring and success founded by the Daughters of Charity at St. Vincent’s. “I am humbled by this tremendous opportunity,” she said. “I believe when you are called to lead, you are called to serve.” St. Vincent’s is the oldest continually operating human service agency in Santa Barbara, beginning operations in 1858. Today, St. Vincent’s provides affordable housing programs, early childhood education and transitional housing.

For the record...

In “Planners reject another Cate School cannabis appeal” (CVN, Vol. 48, No. 44) the square footage of cannabis processing on-site at Valley Crest Farms was misquoted. The operation will have 35,000 square feet for storage and cannabis processing on-site.

Santa Barbara Humane is searching for emergency fosters for five cattle dog puppies and their mother. The puppies were exposed to Parvo, a potentially deadly virus, before arriving at Humane, according to Dori Villalon, chief operating officer. “The best way we can support these puppies and their mother is to get them out of the shelter environment within 24-48 hours and into homes.” There are three females and two males in the litter. Veterinary care will be provided for the dogs, including spay/neuter surgeries, initial vaccines and microchipping.

County releases 2021 agricultural crop report, nearly $2B in gross production value

The 2021 Santa Barbara County Agricultural Crop Report has been released by the County Agricultural Commissioner’s Office. The annual report documents the acreage, yield and gross dollar value of agricultural commodities produced in the county. Agriculture continues to be the county’s major producing industry with a gross production value of $1,918,186,000, Commissioner Cathy Fisher said, adding, “This is an increase of $98,988,000 or 5.1% when compared with the 2020 figure.” Strawberries continue to be the county’s leading

crop with a gross value of $849,729,000 from 2020. “It is always important to note that the figures provided in the report are gross values and do not represent or reflect net profit or loss experienced by individual growers, or by the industry as a whole. Growers do not have control over input costs, such as fuel, fertilizers and packaging, nor can they significantly affect market prices,” Fisher added. The 2021 agricultural crop report, as well as other reports since 1916, can be found on countyofsb.org.

The Covid-19 numbers in Santa Barbara County as of July 25.

County enters high level of Covid-19 transmission

Santa Barbara County now has a “high” level of Covid-19 transmission in its borders as of last week, per Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. According to a statement from the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department on the Covid-19 dashboard, the change “reflects an increase in new Covid-19 cases per 100,000 population, new Covid-19 related hospital admissions per 100,000 population, and the percent of inpatient beds occupied by Covid-19 patients. This increase is being seen across California.” In counties with high levels of Covid-19 transmission, the CDC recommends wearing masks while indoors in public spaces and while on public transportation. The county reported a seven-day aver-

age of 39.3 cases per 100,000 residents on July 18. So far, the county has seen a reported 99,460 cases since the pandemic began. These numbers do not include rapid, antigen at-home Covid-19 tests, the results of which are not reported to the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department. The county also reported four new deaths last week. To learn where to get vaccinated for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/ vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/testing.

Mayor’s comments misrepresented

I refer to page 3 of last week’s print issue (CVN, Vol. 28, No. 44) and the paid advertisement headed, “Vote Yes for the Initiative.” That ad has used a comment I made at a city council meeting, portraying I am in favor of the Initiative securing a Yes vote. That is not correct and is misleading. The comment I made was in relation to me being in favor of giving Carpinteria voters the choice. I was not contacted for my approval of this ad and if I was shown it prior to release, I would have advised them that the way they have included my comment is a misrepresentation of the facts and should not be used.

Cannabis put ahead of student welfare

In response to “Planners reject another Cate School cannabis appeal” (CVN, Vol. 28, No. 44). Who is looking out for the health and safety of our children and students? Especially at Cate School. Once again, planners put the interests of cannabis growers ahead of the welfare of Cate School students. By rejecting their appeal concerning a cannabis grower. Never mind that Cate School is just over 2,200 feet from the cannabis site. I live on Shepard Mesa Hill, located close to Cate School. Every day I go to town and back, I smell the cannabis odor. I understand why Cate School is concerned. It is a sad commentary, when the health concerns of our students are put last, while the interests of the exploding cannabis industry in the Carpinteria

Vote to protect open space

There will be a measure on the November 2022 ballot that will change zoning and reduce the amount of open space in our town. Vote yes to protect our public land. Last Thursday I walked down Carpinteria Avenue to Linden Avenue. The traffic at the intersection has definitely increased since I moved here six years ago. I remember when I only had to wait one light to get through. Now during rush hour and on weekends, there are times when there are so many cars, the light

changes twice before I can proceed. We don’t need more congestion. I have lived in many of the small towns along the coast of San Diego County. Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas and Leucadia all have a history of smalltown charm. However, what used to be undeveloped open spaces and quaint old buildings are now so built up as to make these towns unrecognizable. Carpinteria is the only beach town south of San Francisco where downtown looks and feels like all those other towns used to look and feel. On this particular Thursday, the railroad parking lot was full! On a Thursday! The old eucalyptus trees swayed in the breeze. I passed a visitor who was saying to his friend, “This is a cute little town.” I passed the community garden. I’ve had a plot there in the past. We grew all sorts of vegetables and the most beautiful flowers. Now just walking through the gate and looking at all the lush green growing plants lifts my spirits. I’ve attended classes and groups

studying organic gardening and the best drought-resistant plants to grow. A Yes vote on the November ballot will protect our downtown open space. Let’s preserve what we have.

Carol Kernahan Carpinteria

Community garden is a local treasure

One of my favorite local spots in Carpinteria is the Carpinteria Community Garden. This open space has a nice, open view in all directions. It is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood with limited traffic. As I understand it, the proposed private development would take away 60 feet of the existing garden space. Garden plots are in high demand, giving locals a place to thrive and grow our own food. A large development like the Surfliner Inn project (two stories with a third story rooftop bar and pool) will negatively affect this treasured open space. I envision noise pollution from the open air third story, shade from a large building, lost views and a lot more traffic. Vote Yes to save our downtown open space.

CITY BEAT City issues 481 parking tickets over three months

Thursday, July 28, 2022  7

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

BY EVELYN SPENCE

Code compliance officer David Hernandez told the Carpinteria City Council on Monday officers issued 481 parking tickets during Quarter 2 – April, May and June of this year. During that time, 35 vehicles were towed and officers responded to 126 calls for service related to parking, Hernandez said. Animal Control also made 30 contacts about off-leash dogs, renewed 91 animal licenses, and responded to 107 calls for service. Code Enforcement responded to 103 calls for service, and 31 public nuisance and 71 zoning issues. Councilmember Natalia Alarcon questioned the number of “no parking” violations, asking if a majority of the violations were issued in a specific location. Hernandez clarified that many of the violations were street sweeping violations. Councilmember Roy Lee asked if officers had experienced issues with homeless encampments in the area. There are “short-lived (encampments), usually one,” Hernandez said. “We make contact or the sheriff’s (officers) do, and they move on themselves, and we go in and clean the site.”

City Council heard a code compliance report for Quarter 2 on Monday, which covers April, May and June 2022.

Temporary formula business moratorium extended one year

The Carpinteria City Council appointed five new members to the library board of trustees for the new Carpinteria Community Library on Monday.

Five inaugural library board trustees appointed

The city’s newly minted library board of trustees has five new members, following council appointment Monday night. Twelve “wonderful people” applied for the five positions, city librarian Jody Thomas told the council. Prior to the council vote, Thomas said the commission looks for individuals with “a high interest in libraries, and specifically public libraries.” “(We are) looking for this commission to be the conduit between the library and the community,” she said. “(They’ll be) working on mission, vision, strategic planning, policy creation, looking at programming… a wide variety of ages would be really wonderful.” After extensive debate, the council chose Glynn Birdwell, Margaret Connors, Amber Kaplan, Viviana Morales and Danielle Manriquez-Osborn. One standout who wasn’t chosen – lifelong Carpinterian and Cate School student librarian Daisy Gemberling – received heavy praise from councilmembers, who encouraged her to stay

“The 12 applicants are amazing, and I could not have asked for more.”

involved. “I would like to acknowledge Daisy for coming out… I hope there’s a spot welcome for you at the library,” Mayor Wade Nomura told her. “The 12 applicants are amazing, and I could not have asked for more. If you are not elected to be on the commission, (I hope) that does not deter you from being actively involved,” Councilmember Natalia Alarcon added. The council has acted as a temporary library board until permanent members were chosen.

In other council business…. Aug. 22 meeting canceled

The council cancelled its Aug. 22 meeting on Monday. The council traditionally cancels its second meeting in July or August due to family vacations and other priorities.

New national suicide hotline: 988

Councilmember Natalia Alarcon reminded the public of the new suicide hotline: 988. Members of the public can either text or call the number if they need mental health services. The current hotline number, a 1-800 number, will remain active, but calls will be forwarded to the 988 number.

The Carpinteria City Council voted Monday to extend the temporary formula businesses moratorium for one year, while city staff work on a permanent ordinance. The temporary ordinance will now expire June 26, 2023, unless extended next year. It was originally adopted late last month. “We wanted to promote the reinvestment of locally generated profits in the community… and maintain status quo while final formula business regulations

are drafted,” Community Development Director Steve Goggia told the public and the council on Monday. Carpinteria has more than a dozen vacant commercial real estate spaces in its city limits, and nearly 20 more commercial spaces with pending developments. The vote passed 4-0. Councilmember Roy Lee recused himself due to his family’s small business, Uncle Chen Restaurant.

“True Friendship” thrives at arts center

This week’s group of Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center campers ended their session with an original play they wrote and performed: “True Friendship.” The play, according to camp director Lana Ziegler, focuses on the sun and the moon, who hoping to see each other, plan to come together during an eclipse. “Theater director Asa Olsson was very impressed with the students’ ability to develop, write and perform a show in one week,” Ziegler said. The summer camp’s final performance is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 5, at 1:30 p.m. It is open to the public. Learn more at carpinteriaartscenter.org.

Philanthropist Lynda Fairly has committed $150,000 to Girls Inc. of Carpinteria to support a total renovation of its outdoor courtyard. The courtyard will be developed into an intentional mixeduse community space, complete with dedicated outdoor classroom areas and an interactive playground. An anonymous donor also gave $200,000 to fund the organization’s courtyard renovation. Fairly has challenged Girls Inc. of Carpinteria to raise $250,000 more. Once achieved, Fairly will give an additional $100,000. Contributions to the campaign will help fund Girls Inc.’s efforts to attract and retain a qualified, caring and stable workforce by offering competitive wages and benefits. “I was raised by a single mom, and I know the need to help young women to become healthy, educated, and independent,” Fairly said. “Girls Inc. starts this process at a young age and encourages girls to believe in their futures.” Fairly retired from Santa Barbara City College following a distinguished career in public education serving youth and adults. She currently sits on three nonprofit boards and volunteers with several local organizations. “The Lynda Fairly Courtyard will serve as an intentional, beautiful outdoor space where we will continue to cultivate

The funding will support our talented and dedicated staff and ensure that more girls and young women are given the space, mentoring and resources to thrive.”

Gifts for Her Legacy are $25,000 or greater and funded by women or women-owned foundations. Donors will be honored with a naming opportunity in

There’s an to ingrid@ingridbostromphotography.com. man at Cate School who don’t know how to swim; it is a requirement. It should be the same for our public schools. Hopefully Carpinteria High School will have a pool in the near future. Think about how many more kids will be able to try out for Junior Guards, who can become swim instructors and lifeguards. These jobs are essential services. They are lifesaving jobs.

You teach all ages and ability levels with confidence. Do you follow a formula or lead by intuition, or both? It’s years of teaching and learning how to read your student. Every student learns differently so you really have to home in on them personally. Some jump right in and some are terrified. I adapt to the student and teach them the best way that works for them. It’s a technique of steppingstones until each milestone is met. I am still learning in and out of the water. I like to challenge myself to improve and learn to be the best I can. Beyond teaching private lessons, you work with community organizations. Please share more about the scope of what you do. I love this community and how supportive it’s been. I partnered with Girls Inc. to teach its summer swim program. What an incredible organization support-

Carpinteria Old Town Fiesta brings colorful delights

PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

Kids sprinted through the Carpinteria Woman’s Club last Saturday enjoying an afternoon of colorful delights, treats and dances, as locals gathered to celebrate the annual Carpinteria Old Town Fiesta. Put on by Artesania para la Familia, Old Town Fiesta saw performances from both soloists and dance groups, including the Sahagun Dance Academy and Mariachi Voz De Mi Pueblo. This year’s 2022 Spirit of Fiesta was Tara Mata, joined by 2022 Junior Spirit of Fiesta Layla Gocong. Kids also sold handmade tokens at El Mercadito, a youth craft market set up through the Carpinteria LatinX Collective. The free annual event is sponsored by the Anna Jackson Foundation, Montecito Bank & Trust, and The Friends of the Carpinteria Library.

LET’S TALK TEK M I C H A E L AV E R Y I am willing to bet you will not find a single person who does not want to save the planet. There may be a wide range of opinions on what that entails and what the actual threat to the planet is based on, but there can be no argument that the planet can use some help. We live in a beautiful area, where Earth Day originated in 1970. So, saving the planet is in our communal DNA. I thought this month I would talk about Tek and how it relates to saving the planet. With the recent hot weather that we are experiencing all over the United States and many other parts of the planet I got to thinking, can Tek save the planet? I decided to do a little digging and see what impact technology is having on the planet. Last month I talked about how Cloud Computing was saving money, with data centers moving rapidly to a zero-carbon footprint. I used that as my starting line and was amazed at what I discovered. I am not going to tell you if Tek can

Can Tek save the planet?

save the planet, so I will present you with some tasty tidbits and let you decide for yourself. Now I know that some of you will say that it is just a bunch of “pie in the sky” rhetoric or biased view from a guy that makes his living from the world of technology. In truth I am the son of a millwright that taught me to think critically and figure stuff out. My natural curiosity and desire to improve the way things are done lead me to technology. I see the blessings and the less-ings brought about by the ever-increasing role of technology in our world and lives. So, let’s wade into the technology pool and look at how Tek might already be saving the world and see what you think. First up is the big one: climate change. The environment is a mess, out-of-control wildfires, deforestation, the destruction of coral reefs, pollution, five trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean. There are five large plastic garbage patches in the ocean and the largest of them, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, is comprised of 80,000 tons of all sorts of plastic – equal to 500 jumbo jets. They calculated the cleanup would take thousands of years and cost billions of dollars, until a group of engineers, researchers, scientists and computational modelers designed a solution: long floating barriers that acted like artificial coastlines and enabled winds, waves and currents to passively catch and

concentrate the plastic. The plastic is now used to make sunglasses or added to the paving materials. Do you know how important the ocean is in preventing global warming? The ocean absorbs about 30% of the CO2 emissions that are released into the atmosphere. A healthy ocean is key to a healthy planet; with the damage and loss of coral reefs, ocean health is in jeopardy. Technology saves the day. Robot jellyfish have been developed and are created by 3D printers. They are designed to take on tasks that are too delicate for human divers as they observe, explore and restore the coral reefs. Let’s get back on terra firma – solid earth – and how farming is being transformed by technology. They use drones, GPS, autonomous farm equipment and AI, and reduced the use of water and fertilizer, while increasing yields and improving crops. In summary: the use of paper and timber is in decline because of the use of digital technology, computers and smartphones. The use of metals in manufacturing has decreased, even while

production has increased. Energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions have not increased but have remained flat since 1970. All of this is because of technology and the rapid pace it is developed and integrated into all aspects of our lives. What do you think? Can Tek save the planet? I would like to hear your answers and encourage you to reach out. I know for me my answer is a resounding, yes! 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.

I am honored to say that this month’s column marks two years of sharing recipes with you through our local gem: Coastal View News. Like they say, time flies when you’re having fun, and what’s more fun than baking up some pie bars!? Since I’ve been tasked with making 200+ pie bars for an upcoming event, I thought this would be the perfect time to share such a popular recipe. This recipe is also great because it is so versatile. You can substitute almost any fruit for the raspberries. I’ve used peaches, blueberries, strawberry rhubarb, blackberries and apples. Raspberry happens to be my personal favorite, because I really enjoy the tartness this fruit provides in contrast to the sweet pie dough. It’s been a great two years, and I’m truly looking forward to sharing more recipes with you. Enjoy!

Tired of his high water bill and looking to be ecofriendly, Gerald Enthoven tore up his front lawn and replaced it with drought-tolerant plants.

A “coastal desert landscape,” right around the corner BY EVELYN SPENCE

Head down Via Real and peak around the corner onto Sentar Road, and you might catch a glimpse of large cacti and blooming succulents lining the front yard of a blue house – a “coastal desert landscape,” as put by the house’s owner, Gerald Enthoven. Enthoven, who boasts a low water bill for the Carpinteria Valley, said he ripped up his entire front lawn two years ago and – tired of the high-water bills and water waste – designed his own piece of desert paradise, right there in his front lawn. “(Our) water bill slashed in half,” he emphasized, gesturing to the collection of cacti, succulents and colorful decorations spread across his front yard, atop decomposed granite and gravel. “Nothing changed inside the house.” He points out a large metal dinosaur decoration, perfect for the “Jurassic” landscape. Enthoven said it took him three weeks to tear up his grass lawn, and that he designed the landscape himself, inspired by trips to the desert. He put a “weed cloth” underneath the granite and gravel to prevent weeds from sprouting up. “Fifteen years ago, I didn’t care… about the drought, I didn’t think there was water waste,” he said, noting that his

family has lived in that house since 1983. But, inspired by the high bill and the need to do better for the environment, he set out to change that. Since pulling out his grass and planting cacti and succulents, Enthoven said people walking by have taken pictures of the outside of his house and knocked on his door, asking him to design their yards. His advice? It’s easy to pull off. “There is a little bit of a cost initially, with the plants, but it slashed my water bill,” he said. “It’s worth it... I’m very proud.” He also showed off his backyard to CVN, noting the expanse of green is actually AstroTurf, built to withstand the rough and tumble of his large dog and his seven grandkids. He started with renovating the backyard to be environmentally friendly five years ago as a passion project, before tackling the front. His house, he said, is built for parties and fun – and the best of all, he doesn’t have to worry about his yard being ruined, or the high bills that come with a grass lawn. “Two years ago, this was all grass,” he said. “All lawn – a waste of water.”

Gerald Enthoven’s house, located on Sentar Road in Carpinteria, boasts of his low water bill in the Carpinteria Valley Water District due to its drought-resistant decorations.

Gerald Enthoven stands next to a large cactus, part of his front yard that he transformed in to – in his own words – a “coastal desert landscape” two years ago.

CVN trains with the animals in Moorpark

From left, Roberta and Steve Christiansen, Sandy Evans and Sandy Brown popped over to Moorpark for its exotic animal training program, where the four attended an animal show and visited with the animals – of course, with a copy of CVN in hand. “(We) finished up at the Cracker Barrel for lunch,” Evans shared.

Girl Scouts take CVN on jungle safari

Carpinteria’s Girl Scout Troop 50006 threw a copy of CVN into their suitcases on their trip to Costa Rica last month, traveling alongside girl scouts from Illinois and Pennsylvania. The group learned more sustainable agriculture, scout leader Kristina Calkins said, and visited several farms. “They also took a jungle safari to see lots of crocodiles and were lucky to see all four types of monkeys at some national parks on the Pacific coast,” Calkins said. “Hurricane Bonnie stole their final day of river rafting, but they made the best of it by taking Latin dance lessons instead.” From left, Kristina Calkins, Rosita Power, Elisha McCullough, Amelia Power, Sara Flora Fakinos, Anna Petersen and Evelyn Calkins are pictured just before the group soared across the longest zip line in Latin America – 1.5 km, according to Calkins.

Even shorebirds endure bureaucracy

CVN

killdeer nest, but it didn’t happen. The nest of four eggs somehow survived campground traffic and the usual dogs off leash that could’ve easily ran right over the four speckled eggs. Once they survived the incubation process, four fuzzy killdeer chicks ran amok across the beach with both their parents – vigilant with every awkward step. My point is, why do we have to wait for this species or any species to get in trouble before it falls under some sort of protection or listing? Why do we have to wait for something bad to happen before remedying the situation? Isn’t that how species and habitats gets into dire straits? All Cox and his team had to do is extend the roped off area another 30 feet or so to give those killdeer a fighting chance. Instead, it was Russian roulette for that family of killdeer. It didn’t have to be that way. I understand every government entity has its budgets, priorities and bureaucracy. They’ve been trained that way, but it’s a sorry excuse when so many species are barely hanging on. Other species on the brink of vulnerability or staring at threatened status shouldn’t have to wait to get to that point. Seems to me that wildlife biologists need to sidestep these obstacles and respond in the field when they are called for.

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM The caged sanctuary was briefly intruded upon. A western snowy plover was sitting on three eggs within its beachside enclosure on the Carpinteria State Beach, a cage that protects it from predators that want to feast on the plover’s clutch of eggs. However, when a fellow shorebird, a killdeer, squared off with the other plover parent outside the nesting area, all hell broke loose. The killdeer had stepped too close to the plover’s nest, and doing what protective parents do, the plover chased it off. The only problem was it chased it inside the plover’s caged sanctuary. Immediately there was a feathered dust up between the plover on the nest and the unlucky killdeer who managed to find its way out of the cage and onto the windblown beach. Such is life for shorebirds surviving and thriving on one of the more popular beaches in Southern California.

Sharing the beach

Western snowy plovers aren’t the only shorebird species trying to survive on popular Carpinteria State Beach. What little restoration has occurred on that stretch of beach has been just enough to lure in several pairs of mating plovers in 2022, but also another species that has been nesting on those pearly white sands for the last several years. During the Spring and Summer of 2021, the State Beach saw its first successful western snowy plover nest since 1960, setting the table for what has occurred in 2022. As of July 2022, there have been nine nests, several of those were attempts by the same female plover. As with every nest discovered by biologists while performing their weekly monitoring of nesting sites, a cage is placed over each nest to keep predators at bay – mainly crows, raccoons, skunks, raptors and various gulls. The nests are also roped off, giving one of the hardiest shorebirds around a wide swath for survivorship. However, the larger, more colorful killdeer is also nesting on the same patch of habitat, but it doesn’t garner the same attention as the western snowy plover. During last winter while on beach runs, I noticed several killdeer wintering amongst the flotsam of driftwood and tattered giant bladder kelp on the State Beach southeast of the Carpinteria Creek, and while trotting through I thought there might be a potential nest or two. Also wintering was a handful of western snowy plovers, usually counting up to eight individuals each run. By Spring I was hoping for another plover nest but also the killdeer. Sure enough, by May, that region of the beach was active with both species nesting again southeast of the creek. The beach was roped off around the plover’s nest but not the killdeer. As much as I could I kept an eye on their progress, like so many compassionate birders and curious observers keen on seeing this small proliferation shorebirds to continue their quest on the State Beach.

Still, I was rooting for the killdeer because it seemed no one cared, at least

Two Western snowy plover chicks peek out from behind the protective wings of their doting father on Carpinteria State Beach. from the biologists’ standpoint who monitor these shorebirds. So, I asked Nathaniel Cox, head biologist for monitoring western snowy plover nests within the Channel Coast District for California State Parks. He told me in a text that they don’t typically rope off for killdeer. In California western snowy plovers are listed as a threatened species. The killdeer is listed as a species of least concern due to its wide distribution in varying habitats. Nevertheless, habitats are shrinking for many species, so populations of killdeer will decrease as time goes on. However, that isn’t the point. After a pair of killdeer successfully hatched their first brood, all those chicks were preyed upon. The same pair made another attempt and had another nest, this time just a few feet east of the roped off area closest to the Carpinteria Creek. It would’ve been really simple for State Park biologists to extend the roped off area around the

Carpinteria’s new coach Greg Novak is ready and excited for the upcoming season.

Warriors’ new volleyball coach gets girls ready for season WORDS BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

Carpinteria’s newest coach, Greg Novak, has spent the last two decades coaching volleyball, but he didn’t even “catch the bug” and start playing himself until he was well into his 20s. A friend had taken him to Santa Barbara’s East Beach, a beach volleyball hotspot, and after his first serve, he fell in love. “I was there playing sunup to sundown,” he said. It was there at East Beach where he

Returning varsity player Penny Wrought works on her serve technique.

met his wife, fellow volleyball head KC Collins. In 2001, the couple married and moved from Santa Barbara to Carpinteria, where they have both been coaching at the club and high school levels ever since. After helping out his wife, who was coaching Santa Barbara High’s frosh/ soph squad at the time, Novak started coaching with Santa Barbara Volleyball Club’s team, and eventually moved

over to Dos Pueblos, where he coached at all levels for about a decade. He found some success, clinching the girls volleyball CIF title in 2009, before leaving to take over a much smaller program at Cate School. Going from Dos Pueblos, where there was a “huge selection of kids,” he said, to Cate, a private school with a much smaller class size, was an adjustment. But Novak was able field a competitive team, reaching the CIF semifinals three times and clinching the title in 2014. After 10 years at Cate, Novak is excited to take over at Carpinteria, where he says he can be part of a thriving community and get a chance to get to know the parents a little better. “I’m just looking forward to being part of the community and a whole different vibe with a bigger school and a whole new group of girls,” he said. He describes his coaching style as focused on “commitment, discipline,

and time management,” but encourages all his players to have fun. “That’s a key point: make sure that they’re having fun while trying to make it as competitive as possible.” Novak has already started holding open gym workouts, getting to know some of the returning players on the roster, but he is still on the search for some assistants to help out this year. “We need coaches,” he said. He’s hoping that he gets some interest from former players or coaches in the community willing to volunteer at the frosh/soph and junior varsity levels. Tryouts start Aug. 8–9, with two days for incoming students and transfers, followed by two days for returning athletes on Aug. 10–11. Practice will begin the following week, and the team will head into its first tournament on August 20 at Bishop Diego High School. For more information, reach out to Carpinteria High School at (805) 684-4107.

Carpinteria local Derek True reaches big league dreams

From Carpinteria tee-ball to Major League prospect, pitcher Derek True reached his dreams last week, when the third-year Cal Poly San Luis Obispo player was drafted by the Oakland A’s in the final round of the 2022 MLB Draft. The 21-year-old was one of three Cal Poly players selected in this year’s draft, following his roommate, shortstop Brooks Lee, and pitcher Drew Thorpe. True was selected 604 out of 616 picks, and heard the news while in Wisconsin playing in the Northwoods collegiate summer league. “We’re just so excited and so overjoyed,” said Leslie True, Derek’s mother. Leslie and Lynn True own and operate Channel Islands Janitorial in Carpinteria, and said they were proud to see their son get the recognition for his dedication. “He’s worked so hard to put himself in this position,” Leslie said. True got his start in Carpinteria Valley Little League, before playing in Pony League All Stars and at Santa Barbara High School. But even before then, he has always had a baseball in his hand. “He literally lived sports growing up,” Leslie said. “Most kids watch cartoons. He watched SportsCenter.” She described dropping him off at pre-school, where little Derek would ask to wear his full baseball uniform, “with cleats and everything.”

At Santa Barbara High School, True went an undefeated 9–0 in his senior year, with 75 strikeouts over 57 1/3 innings, allowing just 18 walks. In his three years at Cal Poly, he was used sparingly, but has kept the attention of Major League scouts, earning a nod in the draft with one year of eligibility left. He has not made a final decision on whether he will sign with the A’s, where he would likely have to work his way onto a minor league roster, or stay at Cal Poly for one more year to strengthen his draft stock in 2023.

Carpinteria’s best compete at Junior Olympics

Over the weekend, some of Carpinteria’s best young swimmers and water polo players competed in the Summer Junior Olympics, with Coach Sharon Otsuki taking a team down to Clovis for a competitive swim meet, and the Carpinteria Tritons joining forces with Channel Islands United for the junior water polo National Championships in San Jose. In Clovis, Coach Otsuki and the “Carpinteria Gold” group of Lilli Nemetz, Moses Schlobohm, David Aquistapace, Jacob Otsuki, and Erin Otsuki competed at the Junior Olympic Regional Swimming Championships with over 700 competitors. Erin Otsuki, 16, competed in seven events, taking the overall wins in both the 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke. In the 100-meter and 50-meter freestyle, she placed second and third, respectively. She also qualified for the finals in two more events, and was considered for the event’s “High Point” award for the 15-18 age group. “I admire Erin for her dedication to being at practice every single day and her fierce competitiveness,” Coach Otsuki said. In her first ever Junior Olympics meet, 16-year-old Lilli Nemetz competed in the 200 and 400-meter individual medley, earning a spot in the consolation final in the 400. “I am really proud of the way Lilli performs, she is such a strong competitor, and always has such a positive outlook on racing,” Coach Otsuki said. The youngest on the team – Aquistapace, and water polo player turned swimmer Otsuki – both overachieved and set personal records. Aquistapace set three new records, while Otsuki had two personal bests and earned a second swim in both events. But Moses Schlobohm proved his dedication this weekend: competing in two events on day one; then making the trip to Long Beach to compete in the Junior Lifeguard Regionals the next day; and making a return trip to Clovis to compete in the 50-meter freestyle final. “Moses has a lot of potential as well, and I admire his dedication to his team,” Coach Otsuki said. “Not many people would have traveled that much to compete.“ In San Jose, players from the Carpinteria Tritons water polo team joined up with the Channel Islands United teams to compete in the Junior Olympic National Championships. After playing four days of games against teams from across the United States, the 12-and-under girls placed 7th overall in the Gold Division, and the 10-and-under mixed team battled their way to finish 2nd in the Gold Division. Ongoing Carpinteria Aquatics Club youth water polo and swim teams practice at the Carpinteria Community Pool, and interested families can inquire about joining by calling the pool at (805) 566-2417.
