County reinstates mask mandate following rise in Covid-19 delta variant cases

Beginning Friday at 5 p.m., Santa Barbara County is reinstating the mask mandate for everyone – regardless of vaccination status – due to the rise in Covid-19 cases. The mandate applies to indoor public settings. “Hospitalizations have increased, primarily among unvaccinated people. The county of Santa Barbara is also seeing a concerning increase in cases among staff and residents in long-term care facilities and in other congregate living settings,” Public Health Director Dr. Van Do-Reynoso said in a press release. “Over the past two weeks, the county’s active Covid-19 cases have increased significantly with a case rate of 12.4 per 100,000 and a test positive of 6.8% which would have placed Santa Barbara County in the purple tier if the tier system were still active,” Do-Reynoso added. Public Health Officer Dr. Henning Ansorg added that the order is intended to protect everyone, both vaccinated and unvaccinated folks, and is being put in place to allow local businesses, activities and schools to continue to function. He called the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the community “substantial.” “Requiring indoor masking is the least disruptive strategy and can make an immediate impact on limiting the spread of Covid-19, specifically the delta variant,” he said. The county will hold a press conference on Thursday, Aug. 5, at 11 a.m. to answer questions from the public and from press.

Covid-19 cases rise among unvaccinated population CVN REPORT

Santa Barbara County now has widespread community transmission of the Covid-19 delta variant. Over 400 active cases have been detected locally – a 55% increase from the previous two-week average. As of July 20, over 86% of new cases occurred in unvaccinated community members. Covid-19 cases have reached critically high levels in Santa Barbara County with a local case rate of 9.8 cases per 100,000 residents and a positivity rate of 6.9%. With these metrics, Santa Barbara County would be in the purple tier in the now retired tiered framework. New cases of Covid-19 have dramatically increased in July and the demographics of those contracting the virus has shifted. Cases in the past month have trended younger, with those in the 18 to 29-year-old range making up the majority of cases. Additionally, more cases are now being detected in the southern part of the county, a contrast from earlier in the pandemic when the majority of new infections occurred in North County. The Public Health Department has strongly advised that all community members wear a mask in all indoor spaces outside the home; stay home if ill, even if vaccinated; avoid crowded events; and get vaccinated if not already.

“As we enter this new phase of the pandemic, the landscape has changed dramatically from last year’s summer surge,” Van Do-Reynoso, County Public Health director, said. “We have the safe, effective solution to stop this surge in its tracks. We need every eligible member of this community to act and get vaccinated as soon as possible. There are still 149,688 persons eligible to be vaccinated in Santa Barbara County, who have not been vaccinated.” For free vaccine opportunities in your area: • Visit publichealthsbc.org/vaccine/ • Call 2-1-1 for information available in many languages 24/7 • Text GETVAX to 438829 for English or VACUNA to 822862 for Spanish

With one month to go, Sweet Wheel Farm makes last push to save farm

BY EVELYN SPENCE

With one month to go, Sweet Wheel Farm and Flowers staff and board members – alongside passionate community members – are making a final push to raise the funds to save the farm, which is located on land set to be sold by the Carpinteria Unified School District. Leslie Person Ryan, board member on the Save Summerland Farm campaign, explained that the farm is a vital resource for Summerland, which lost all contact to the outside world during the 2017 Thomas Fire and the subsequent Jan. 9, 2018 debris flow, which covered and blocked Highway 101. It was then, Person Ryan emphasized, that Summerland’s precarious position was revealed: without a grocery store, and stuck between the debris flow, Summerland residents could not go north to Santa Barbara or south to Carpinteria for food. They were stuck. “People were literally fighting over food (after the debris flow). There was a young woman who got into a fight at the liquor store over the last stale sandwich. I heard that someone fought an older woman over candy (…) this man saw a fight over a pack of cookies,” she added. “It got desperate.” “The thing about not having access to fresh food in an emergency (is that) it goes south really quick.” Person Ryan said Sweet Wheel Farm and Flowers was born to serve Summerland and the surrounding areas, and to ensure that the area never goes without food again. But the farm has one month to raise the $1.5 million it needs to purchase the land from the Carpinteria Unified School District, which first started the process in late April to begin the steps necessary to sell the property. The farm’s lease is up on Nov. 12, 2021. The district has owned the 6.84-acre parcel since 1955, Coastal View News previously reported. At its April 27 regular board meeting, CUSD legal counsel Lauren Rode said the property would have an estimated listing price of $1.325 million. Person Ryan said the campaign to save the farm recently brought on legal counsel Marc Chytilo, who tackled the Save The San Marcos Foothills campaign. The campaign to save the open area of the San Marcos Foothills reached its $18.6 million dollar goal to purchase the property in early June. The spot had previously been picked to build houses on. The spot is now permanently an open space, preserved for the public. Person Ryan said she is hoping Chytilo will be able to help them do something similar with the farm: keep it open to the public, and as a vital resource for Summerland and the surrounding areas. Chytilo confirmed the farm has sub-

“We have a different way of farming in general, we’re very organic, and we walk that talk.

Additional board members on the Save the Summerland Farm campaign include longtime community activists and people passionate about saving the area, including Whitney Castro, Molly Hutto, Jasmine Jefferies, Adam McKaig, Ian Schlechter, Adam McKaig and Danny Lynch, as well as advisory board members Morgan Marz and Alma Maiz. The farm does not use pesticides, Person Ryan said, and instead focuses on a very organic approach to growing. The farm and its stands offer vegetables,

The farm has food stands in both Summerland and Montecito. “We have a different way of farming in general, we’re very organic, and we walk that talk,” she added. “Summerland is this government-certified food desert (…) the point is to keep the area green.” The food stands also give food anonymously to anyone who is food insecure, Person Ryan said. “(We give food to) a woman who has cancer and an eight-year-old and can’t work; we give food for the free veterans

breakfast in the veterans building,” she said. “Before we started donating for the free veterans’ breakfast, they were getting a cup of coffee and a donut. Now they’re getting a scramble and fresh fruit.” “There’s a very big difference between thanking somebody for their service and thanking somebody for their service,” she emphasized. Person Ryan expressed frustration with the idea that someone would put a “McMansion” on the property. “It’s sad when people think they’re going to be able to build this big family compound,” she said.

If adopted, the initiative would appear to allow a residential development of five stories tall with no density limit nor parking requirement to replace Parking Lot 3. We urge the City Council to develop an objective report of the possible impacts of the proposed “Save Our Beach Parking” initiative and suggest all Carpinterians delay signing the petition until the facts have been objectively presented and analyzed. Like you, we are area locals who take pride in the distinctive culture and spirit of Carpinteria. It’s important to us that our hotel reflects the design and energy of our city.

Editor’s note: In this week’s Viewpoint section, CVN presents dueling arguments for and against one of Carpinteria’s most heated debates: the proposed Surfliner Inn project on the city’s Parking Lot #3 at 499 Linden Ave.

Money can’t buy our small town back

BY 499 LINDEN MANAGERS, LLC

The goal – create a modest hotel that could breathe fresh life into downtown businesses and offer a modest but forward-looking complement to existing visitor serving options was established over 100 years ago. The proposed location – once the downtown train depot and now 50% of an underutilized parking lot – is an ideal spot for a small boutique hotel. Visitors can arrive by train, be welcomed by a great entrance to the downtown corridor, and visit area small businesses, all while significantly increasing much needed revenue for our city. By uplifting the ambiance of the downtown area with an understated coastal architectural design, The Surfliner Inn team is already working to integrate public comments as well as those received from the city’s conceptual hearing (November 2020). We hope to roll out updated design in the coming weeks and present a longterm city goal to grow wisely in preparation for future demands, while upholding the communal integrity for which the area is best known. The small footprint of this two-story hotel will have big benefits for the community. The upstairs will serve our local non-profits with a venue for their fundraising events and be a cornerstone for the community’s use throughout the year. The urban location will increase the walkability and aid in highlighting what smart, small and sustainably approached projects can look like in our beloved coastal zone. The Surfliner Inn will increase parking and effectuate the creation of a much-needed walking trail which will connect the existing public trail to Holly, giving the public safer access into and out of our beach neighborhood. We believe the initiative, as currently proposed, will set a dangerous precedent, the effects of which could be felt for years to come and bring potentially costly consequences. Why not simply vote on whether you want to see the Surfliner Inn at the proposed location or not? Why the need to hide behind dangerous zoning and

EXPIRES 08/31/21

BY AMRITA M. SALM, PH.D., COMMITTEE TO SAVE THE DOWNTOWN & BEACH PARKING LOT Senator Daniel P. Moynihan (1927– 2003) said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.” The Downtown & Beach Parking Lot #3 is public land and belongs to the people of Carpinteria. The City Council is elected to represent these people. At the council meeting on July 19, by a more than 4 to 1 margin, Carpinterians spoke against the city sponsored Surfliner Inn development proposed for this piece of public land. Regardless, four of the five council members voted to proceed, disregarding the overwhelming majority of expressed public opinion – just as they have for the past five years. This is the precise reason Carpinteria voters need this initiative petition. The California state constitution wisely provides an opportunity for its voters to follow a more democratic process, in this case, for the use of public land. On July 19, 2021, Councilmember Natalia Alarcon questioned the city attorney about the “initiative,” which is the means by which all registered Carpinteria voters could decide this project’s fate. The attorney missed a critical opportunity to inform and educate the council and the public by sidestepping the question. There is no guarantee this hotel project would provide the income the city anticipates, based on projections submitted by the developer without basis in fact. And what if they should go bankrupt (as did the Best Western under construction many decades ago)? Our city government has no business being in the hotel profession. The city has guaranteed income from increasing property tax dollars, and Carpinteria’s homes are selling for higher prices every day. Last year, Measure X tax funds brought in close to $3 million to Carpinteria‚ during a year with fewer tourists visiting. Carpinteria is a unique coastal beach community that values open spaces, mountain views and uncrowded lifestyles. There is not another unspoiled city on the Southern California coast like Carpinteria. It is why we live here and

“Developing Parking Lot #3 would serve to destroy our mountain views, misappropriate 60 feet of land from our community garden, pave our precious coastal open space corridor south of the tracks and bring overcrowding to the area.” why tourists love to come here. Carpinteria has not “sold out.” Yet. This development falls within the newly defined tsunami zone and will be vulnerable to sea level rise. It is slated to be constructed at the outset of a megadrought. And the majority of jobs generated by this project will not pay high enough salaries for the employees to live here. The negative traffic and safety impacts forced upon the Downtown Beach Neighborhood are incalculable. Developing Parking Lot #3 would serve to destroy our mountain views, misappropriate 60 feet of land from our community garden, pave our precious coastal open space corridor south of the tracks and bring overcrowding to the area. None of the changes this development brings to Carpinteria would serve to enhance our small-town charm. Email info@parkinglot3.org and a team will come to you to sign the petition or come to one of our tabling events found on our website. Vote to keep Carpinteria, Carpinteria. It’s your land, your town and your future. It’s your right to vote.

Progressives, American fairness

In response to last week’s letter, “Equity is not equality” (CVN, Vol. 27, No. 45) the author is right, but wrong. Equating a progressive to a Marxist is a red herring. Progressives strive to equalize the social system, correctly recognizing the inherent classes and that the abilities of people within are different. Picture an apple tree with two people ready to pick apples. One is standing on the ground, the other has the aid of a ladder. Is that equal opportunity to gather apples? Progressives would give both people ladders, thereby allowing ambition, skill and perseverance to determine who gathers the most. That’s not Marxism, it’s American fairness. The WalkAway campaign was devised by a pro-Trump person trying to peel away Democratic voters in the 2018 midterms. They tried to divide and confuse voters in order to do what they really wanted: to gain and maintain power. In other words, to possess the ladder and keep “others” on the ground. As for celebrating successful people, Democrats and Republicans do just that. For example, Ronald Reagan signed into law MLK Day. Although not considered by some progressive enough, Barack Obama brings a smile to most in the Democratic Party.

Thomas Bollinger Carpinteria

Misleading letter

After reading the letter “Misplaced blame” (CVN, Vol. 27, No. 45), I felt compelled to respond. So many inaccuracies. For starters, we went from a safe southern border under President Trump to a chaotic border under President Biden in just six months. From day one, Biden’s executive orders and immigration policies have rendered our border unsafe. The unfortunate Capitol riots on Jan. 6 are now being totally misrepresented. And today there is a sham trial with the verdict already pre-determined. Why? Questions arise. Additionally, does the writer not know of the Trump’s many accomplishments, which include historic taxes, deregulation, a stronger military, standing with Israel, Middle East agreements, a border wall, defeating ISIS, fair trade agreements and standing up to China? Finally, “liberals did not label you racist” is a joke. All they do is play the race card, and now it is in our schools. I for one, love America. Shame on those who are trying to destroy it.

Political parties: nuance, not generalization

As an Independent voter, I found Carolyn Edwards’ letter in last week’s paper (CVN, “Equity is not equality,” Vol. 27, No. 45) very disconcerting. She claimed the left “pits people against each other,” when in fact her entire letter generalized everyone on the left – without nuance – in turn creating the same problem she complains about, classifying people who think differently than her as “the other.” I vote Republican and Democrat, and I watch Fox News and CNN. Left leaning people, I find, celebrate inclusiveness,

the achievement of immigrant doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and so on. There is unconscious bias and racism, and there always has been, and I find left leaning people are more attuned to this. If anyone doubts racism is a problem in America, check out the last five years. Ms. Edwards claims people are leaving the Democratic Party. The numbers of people identifying as Republicans in the last five years has gone down massively, thanks in part to an extreme turn to the right, with Donald Trump only partly to blame for this. Truth, as well, has gone out the window for the GOP. As long as people generalize “the other,” the more separation we create and the less mature dialogue we have to work with.

“The Grapevine,” a breath of fresh air

Given the proliferation of bombastic rhetoric – so much a part of the current social upheaval – being perpetuated by political factions and promoted by certain media outlets, it was with a breath of fresh air that the Carpinteria Valley Historical Museum’s newsletter “The Grapevine” series on the Ota and Fukasawa families was received. It is a true story of triumph despite grave injustice. There lies in the saga, a great lesson. One of perseverance, self-determination and willingness not to be defined or mired in the quagmire of subjugation inflicted by circumstances out of one’s control. Through sustained self-dignity, the families not only overcame, but forged an improved future for themselves and their successors. Life can be difficult and isn’t always fair, but it is what we make of it. Theirs is a story worth attention and one to be applauded.

Proposed inn is misuse of beach area

Man, I just don’t get it. If that site for the proposed Surfliner Inn is public property, why is it that the “public” cannot vote on its usage? Every week in CVN’s “Letters,” residents protest the City Council’s plans for the hotel. Vice Mayor Al Clark appears to be the only one to stand his ground in opposition. I really hate the prospect of Carpinteria becoming another beach community with misuse of the beach front. My first concern was the water usage the hotel will consume. The California drought

situation has affected so many in the state – how can this hotel not increase water usage in the city? It seems that residents will have to cut back even more on their consumption. Maybe the council will impose a water rationing system and establish a limit per household size. As a former resident, and graduate of Carpinteria High School, Class of ‘59, I am moved to submit these thoughts in a letter to the editor. Since my dad was the former resident deputy sheriff and a merchant in the city as owner of Pine Haven Texaco, Carpinteria Camper and Trailer Sales, and later, Al’s Bike Shop, our family has a vested interest in Carpinteria’s future.

Harbor seals need task force

It has been said that the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. If this time-honored sentiment is heeded here, let it be focused on the creatures that preceded us, and have quietly infused our city with its very soul. Carpinteria faces many challenges. We’ve navigated the waters of a global pandemic, we have avaricious land grabbers breathing down our necks like the wolves our ancient ancestors feared, and now the state and county want to threaten our identity. It is no wonder that a peaceful, quiet and undemanding creature’s needs should go unnoticed. Here in Carpinteria, we have been entrusted with the mere 1,500 feet of sanctuary the harbor seals have called home. It is their chosen space, the only location for miles that is as highly specialized as they are. Harbor seals are bestowed with unique adaptions to find food at sea and shelter on land, but their survival now seems to be challenged due to our oversight. Please don’t drive them from their home. Come to the City Council meeting on Monday, Aug. 9 to show your support.

New energy choice services to commence in Carpinteria CVN REPORT

This fall, Carpinteria will join 31 other communities that can access services from Central Coast Community Energy (CCCE). Business and residential customers in Carpinteria, Goleta and unincorporated southern Santa Barbara County will begin receiving service from CCCE starting in October. All enrolling electricity customers will receive four mailed notifications with details about enrollment, according to a press release from CCCE. Personnel from CCCE will also hold virtual webinars in English and Spanish to inform households and businesses about the transition. Across the CCCE service area, PG&E and SCE continue their traditional roles delivering electricity and sending one monthly bill that includes CCCE charges, but CCCE is now in charge of how and where this electricity is generated. “With service for customers in Carpinteria, Goleta and southern Santa Barbara County beginning in October, Central Coast Community Energy will bring choice and more opportunities for customers,” said Supervisor Das Williams, who is also CCCE Policy Board vice chair. “As an agency, CCCE is moving the needle on reducing emissions and creating new renewable energy resources that benefit not just the whole state but our planet, while maintaining affordability for its Central Coast customers.” As a community-owned electricity provider, CCCE’s focus on clean energy and local control is already providing 350,000 Central Coast customers access to competitively priced electricity, incentives and rebates from innovative local energy programs such as funding for electric vehicles (EV) and EV charging stations, zero-emissions electric school buses, electric agricultural equipment

and more. As a public agency, CCCE also provides regular opportunities to participate in public meetings and workshops that steer the course of future CCCE community reinvestments. Since launching in 2018, investments total $49.5 million in community reinvestment, including a 50% rate reduction totaling $22 million for May and June 2020 in response to Covid-19. CCCE also funds energy programs, with $12 million available for fiscal year 2021-22. For all participating communities, CCCE service represents a first-ever choice and alternative to receiving electricity service solely from investor-owned utilities (IOUs) such as PG&E or SCE. Following the same structure as 23 other community choice energy agencies serving more than 11 million customers throughout California, CCCE works in partnership with the IOUs. In their respective service areas, PG&E or SCE continue delivering electricity, maintaining infrastructure and sending one monthly bill that includes CCCE electric generation charges; these electric generation charges were previously charged by IOUs as part of their bundled service costs. IOUs will continue charging for transmission and delivery. Customers also continue to have uninterrupted access to financial assistance programs including CARE, FERA, Medical Baseline, AMP and California’s Climate Credits. “Our expansion to serve three new communities in Santa Barbara County marks an important transition in CCCE’s development as a community choice energy agency,” Tom Habashi, the agency’s CEO, said.

Kathleen “Kathy” Anne Goebel 6/10/1961 – 7/28/2021

A few weeks after turning 60 years young, our sister Kathleen “Kathy” Anne Goebel was welcomed into the arms of God. She was known by all to be the friendliest, happiest, loving person they had ever met, always having a smile on her face, shaking your hand or giving you a hug. Kathy was born in the Summer of 1961 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She was the third oldest of four children to Bert and Arlene Goebel before relocating to Santa Barbara, California. Kathy’s family settled in Carpinteria, California. It was at this time Kathy began attending Garfield School and later advancing to the Alpha Training Center, both of which were located in Santa Barbara, California. After living in Carpinteria for over 30 years with her parents, Arlene and Bert, they moved to Visalia, California where she attended the “Life Skills” Learning Center. Kathy loved being active and participated not only in the Special Olympics in both Santa Barbara and Visalia, but

she was most proud of her participation with the “Miracle League” of Visalis and never missed an opportunity to laugh and celebrate with her friends during each game. She was a long-time member of the “Women of the Moose.” After relocating to Visalia, Kathy attended St. Mary’s Church with her parents. What made her standout the most was her immeasurable love for her parents, Arlene “MaMa” and Bert “PaPa”. Kathy is preceded in death by her parents, Bert and Arlene Goebel, and her younger brother, James “Jimmy” Goebel. She is survived by her two brothers, Dennis Goebel (Anja) and Gary Goebel, all of Visalia. Her brothers would like to thank Mark and all of the teachers at the “Life Skills” Learning Center for all of the fun, joy and friendships Kathy enjoyed and looked forward to each day. We would also like to thank Gary and his wife of the Miracles League of Visalia, and her coach Laurie, for the great experiences Kathy had with her teammates on the New York Yankees. In lieu of flowers, her brothers are asking for donations to be made in Kathy Goebel’s honor to the Miracle League of Visalia. Visitation will be held 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5, 2021 at Salser & Dillard Funeral Chapel, 127 E. Caldwell Ave., Visalia, with the Rosary to be prayed at 6 p.m. Graveside services will be held at noon on Friday, Aug. 6, 2021 at Carpinteria Cemetery District, 1501 Cravens Lane, Carpinteria. Services have been entrusted to Salser & Dillard Funeral Chapel. Memorial tributes and condolences may be offered by logging onto salseranddillard.com.

Nimmer wins award for documentary

Local Larry Nimmer, known as CVN’s Man on the Street, won the Raising Awareness Award at the Impact Docs festival in La Jolla, alongside his video partner Duffy Hecht. The documentary, “Our Two Years With Trump,” focuses on small-town politics during Donald Trump’s era. “We talked with people in Europe, Vietnam and across the U.S. about this crazy time. I think what will be of particular interest to locals are scenes of the debate at The Alcazar Theatre, the BLM protest here on Linden and our interviews on Mills Corner a few days before the election,” Hecht said.

Since 1979, Carpinteria’s Mike Betliskey has been paralyzed from the shoulder blades down after he was shot in the back during a robbery. The thief stole $6 from Betliskey and his ability “to live a normal life,” Mike Lee, who is close to Betliskey, wrote to CVN. Today, Betliskey needs a patient lift gantry and Lee has organized a GoFundMe campaign to help him raise the $10,000 he needs to purchase the lift and pay for additional medical bills. “For four decades, Mike has been struggling to live a normal life; but now, time, paralysis, age and progressive arthritis are stealing from Mike the little remaining independence and mobility the robbers left him,” Lee wrote. “Mike is in dire need of a patient lift gantry to help him move from his wheelchair to his bed at night, and from his bed to the wheelchair in the morning.” Lee called the process “arduous” and posted a documentary video to the GoFundMe site of Betliskey getting into his bed which shows the risk and difficulty currently involved.

Meet Carpinteria’s new garden coordinator In the four years that have passed since the Carpinteria Community Garden opened, the 0.7-acre space on 5th Street has grown into itself beautifully — with splashes of colorful blooms, buzzing bees, fluttering butterflies and a year-round harvest of organic fruits and veggies. To Wendy Robins’ delight, this is the city park space that has been entrusted to her care. Robins, who was hired to be the garden coordinator late last spring, has over a decade of experience as a garden educator. The longtime Santa Barbara resident most recently worked fostering a love of gardening in young people through Explore Ecology. She is thrilled with her new position and says that she has seen few community gardens that were designed as thoughtfully. The garden includes 104 separate plots, and membership priority is granted to Carpinteria residents that have limited or no outdoor space of their own for gardening. Though community-building activities such as classes and volunteer days were put on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic, Robins looks forward to getting these back on the garden calendar soon. Robins plans on being at the garden all day on Mondays and Wednesdays and half-day on Saturdays. So far, she’s enjoyed getting to know the garden members and making new discoveries in the garden daily. Outside of the garden, Robins fills her spare time with beach volleyball, knitting,

Rodriguez retires after long career at Montecito Water District CVN REPORT

When it comes to her new position, Robins most looks forward to getting her hands in the dirt. She credits former garden coordinator Alena Steen for creating a thriving garden and a positive culture among members that Robins will continue to nurture.

After 38 years at the Montecito Water District (MWD), distribution superintendent Daniel Rodriguez has retired. When Rodriguez – who lives in Carpinteria – began work at MWD in July 1983, he quickly rose the ranks, becoming the youngest person in 25 years to hold the position of distribution superintendent. During his career, Rodriguez maintained the district’s complex water system with 113 miles of distribution system pipelines, 50 pressure regulating stations, 900 fire hydrants and 4,600 water service connections. MWD has over 11,000 customers. “We are extremely fortunate to have Danny’s knowledge and dedication,” said general manager Nick Turner. “Danny put a large emphasis on teamwork and accomplished an amazing amount, with loyal support from a qualified crew who takes pride in their work.” Rodriguez experienced multiple natural disasters during his time with the district, including the Thomas Fire in December 2017 and subsequent the debris flow on Jan. 9, 2018. In his role with the district and in response to the emergency, Rodriguez organized over 100 distribution staff, contractors and aid agencies to repair severely damaged infrastructure. In less than three weeks, Rodriguez had led the restoration of water service to all customers. To complete the work crews had to access over 350

A resolution commemorating Rodriguez’ 38 years of service and leadership for Montecito Water District’s customers has been adopted by Montecito’s Water District Board. Richard Romero, hired by the district in 2000, was appointed as the new superintendent.

The first fire I responded to was a small outbuilding in Glendale. It was 110 degrees that day. It will always be in my memory as the first legitimate fire I responded to.

Have you ever been scared while fighting a fire? I have been to many fires in my 34-year career. Very few have ever caused me to be afraid. However, there was one fire I responded to where a large house was well involved with fire. My engine company went in through the front door and shortly thereafter, the conditions for a backdraft were present. I realized we were in a dangerous situation. I quickly got my crew out of the building and a backdraft (smoke explosion) occurred. Thankfully, nobody was hurt. What’s your biggest recommendation to Carpinterians for fire safety? Every dwelling place in the Carpinteria Summerland Fire Protection District should be protected by working smoke alarms. Smoke alarms save lives. What do you want all kids to know to do when there’s a fire? Children must remember to stay low under the smoke during a fire and quickly exit the structure. Families should have a common location to gather outside of the structure. Exit drills with the family are something that should be done every six months. What should every homeowner know to keep them and/or their tenants safe? The National Fire Protection Association reports that the two top causes of a fire in a residence are cooking related and candle use. Please have a portable fire extinguisher nearby the stove/oven. Never leave a burning candle unattended. If you could make one world law related to fires or fire safety, what would it be? All fireworks would be illegal to use or possess without a professional license.

Fire is the visible effect of the process of combustion – a kind of chemical reaction. To make fire, fuel and oxygen (O2) from the air combine to create combustion products such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) which when added to heat-energy, create fire. In recent years, Californians have come to know the swiftness in which a rapidly spreading wildfire can disrupt and threaten lives, livelihoods and communities. California’s largest wildfire this year, is the Dixie Fire, which started just over a week ago and had already burned 200,000 acres on Monday.

DANNY’s DELI & SELF-SERVE

These vibrant succulent shrubs are called sticks on fire (Euphorbia tirucalli) and can grow to 8-feet tall in hot, dry climates. With its fiery red shades, these plants add color and accent to home gardens. But take care when handling – all parts of the Euphorbia tirucalli are toxic when ingested and its milky sap can burn and irritate skin and eyes.

Seventy-three-year-old Carpinterian Leroy Adams took CVN to Albany, New York earlier this month, finishing an eight-day, 400-mile bike ride on the Erie Canal from Buffalo to Albany. Riding the Erie canal has been on Adams’ bucket list since 2015, but at 73, he was far from the oldest rider on the route, whose ages ranged from 13 to 83. Adams spent the rest of the weekend visiting friends in Massachusetts, before meeting his wife and driving up to Annapolis, Maryland to visit their son-in-law. The couple will visit their grandkids before driving back across the U.S. – making sure to visit quilting stores, of course.

It’s all fun and games at Sandy Paws, where owner Audrey Pietre, center, offers dog boarding, one-on-one and group training, and puppy play groups.

Training dogs and growing a business at Sandy Paws CVN

TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P Does your dog jump on people, bark at strangers or show aggression? Do you repeat commands or have to physically remove your dog from guests when they enter your home? We’ve all struggled in a similar situation, whether we’re on the receiving end or just trying to control the dog. And since I’m not a dog person, one of the first questions I asked Audrey Pietre, owner of Sandy Paws, a local dog training, daycare and boarding service, is: What the heck do I do when a dog charges at me? “Don’t pay attention to the dog. Don’t give eye contact. Keep walking and claim your space as if you have a two-foot circle around you,” Pietre said. “Eventually, the dog will come and sniff, but don’t look at it until you get a lick or a sniff on the thigh (…) You’re working off the dog’s personality.” Turns out, it’s not dogs who need training – humans do. One of Pietre’s business foundations is tapping into her background in psychology; it allows her to be more sensitive to people as they learn to communicate with their pets. In the past, she’s trained horses and spent years training dogs for veterans with PTSD. The trick, Pietre discovered, is giving people with PTSD the confidence

to train their pets effectively. “I know that people with trauma and PTSD learn differently, ingest information differently and impart information differently to their dogs,” Pietre said. “I’m not training the dog – dogs are easy. I’m training (with) the different personalities.”  When it comes to running a dog training, boarding and daycare business, Pietre said that are three rules she adheres to to stay at the top of her game. 1) Keep the quality of service in mind and not financial gain; 2) know that you are here to make things better and impart knowledge; and 3) don’t BS your clients. In other words, Pietre says not to cut corners and to provide your clients with a solid foundation. Become a person they can trust. If you make a mistake, always own it and make it right. She adds that the key to her success for the boarding side of her business is not to take more than she can handle. “I want all my dogs to have a lot of playtime. If I have dogs who are old and disoriented, you have to separate them. I put dogs in groups of the same temperament, age, personalities (and) energy level,” Pietre said. “I don’t just plunk everybody in one.”  As for a trade secret for training your dog? Don’t repeat yourself, she said. “If you say, ‘No’ or ‘Come,’ and they don’t when they know these commands, they’re ignoring you. Don’t enter into a verbal conversation with your dog. Separate your emotions from training,” she said. Pietre added that training involves tricking your dog into doing what you’d like for them to do, without them knowing. “The trick is to find what will make the dog come without him thinking, ‘We have

Audrey Pietre said that training involves tricking your dog into doing what you’d like them to do, without them knowing. to leave the beach now,’ or, ‘She wants me to put on the harness,’” she explained. Before the interview ended, I had to sneak in one last question: Is the age-old cliché true? Can you teach an old dog new tricks? Pietre replied – without pause – “Absolutely.” Who’s in?

Six students awarded transfer college scholarships

Six Carpinteria High School graduates – Janeth Hernandez, Stephanie Chavez Marquez, Jillian Stineman, Arata Tomatsuri, Cassidy Hajducko and Monse Alpizar – are the new recipients of the Carpinteria Education Foundation scholarships. Hernandez and Chavez-Marquez, both CHS class of 2021 graduations, will each have $10,000 scholarships available, courtesy of the Lynda Fairly and Richard Finkley Transfer Scholarship, after they complete the Santa Barbara City College Promise Program. The Promise Program helps students attend the school fulltime for two years, and helps with tuition enrollment fees, books and other class materials.

Stineman, Tomatsuri, Hajducko and Alpizar will also receive $3,000 each, to go toward their undergraduate degrees, courtesy of Margo Handelsman and Barry Kaufman. “We created the Transfer Scholarship to encourage Carp High students to take advantage of the availability of the first two years of college at no cost from one of the very best community colleges in the country,” Finkley said. Finkley and his wife, Fairly, have been closely connected to the community for years. Fairly retired from the position of Vice President of Adult Education at SBCC in 2007. “The scholarships then help fund the completion of an undergraduate degree upon transfer. Spending two years at

SBCC not only reduces the potential debt from student loans but also gives a young person the opportunity to explore new academic interests,” Finkley added. Carpinteria High School Principal Gerado Cornejo commended the community members for their scholarships

and monetary support. “We appreciate the great support from Carpinteria for the two-year college scholarships as well as those for four-year schools,” Cornejo said. “We’re fortunate to live where the community stands by and supports students.”

Surfing and surfboards as art BY VINCE BURNS

GUY MOTIL/CALIFORNIA SURF MUSEUM

The deck (top) of a Bob Simmons foam sandwich board from 1950 shows the process used in building this iconic board.

A new exhibition at Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM) is currently exploring the intersection between surfing and art. The show also provides a great chance to bone up on California surf history. And best of all, the exhibit pays proper attention to our own Rincon Point as one of the world’s iconic surf spots. Running at the SBMM until the end of October, “Heritage, Craft & Evolution: Surfboard Design 1885–1959,” presents surfboards closely identified with 11 classic California surf spots to tell the history of surfing and the evolution of surfboard technology. But it doesn’t use historical boards to accomplish the task. Instead, it relies on near-perfect replicas enhanced with oil beachscapes painted onto the boards’ decks. Yes, it’s a quirky premise – but hang on! These aren’t just any replicas. The reproductions were created by Rincon legend and master shaper (“shaping” is the design and hand-building of a surfboard) Reynolds “Renny” Yater (b. 1932). Yater’s life’s work has been the innovative design of world-class boards bearing his name. More on Yater to come. Then, Yater’s raw foam replicas were meticulously faux-painted – scratches, dimples, dings and all – by Kevin Ancell and Peter St. Pierre. In the final step, the replica boards were turned over to artist and surfer John Comer, who painted vignettes directly onto the center of the boards. Each vignette is of a famous beach associated with the board. What did the artists’ collaboration render for Rincon Point? It’s a replica of a Bob Simmons twin-fin balsa board from the late 1940s. The artists picked this board to honor his role, in Yater’s words, as “the father of the modern surfboard.” Besides being a genius board designer and builder, Simmons was also a great character like so many in surfing. Among other eccentricities, he is alleged to have scouted SoCal beaches for surf in a converted hearse filled with oranges, cans of beans, weather maps and a sleeping bag. Unfortunately, he was also a tragic character, drowning at the age of just 35 while surfing in San Diego. Before his untimely death, Simmons’ had a revelation to apply engineering principles to board design. No slouch in school, Simmons aced courses at Caltech while finding time to master surfing. But his most important innovation? He brought the nose of his boards up (“scarfing the nose”) to keep the board from pearling or nose-diving into waves. He brought lessons from physics and engineering to bear on his designs and realized the possibilities of fiberglass. World War II and Cold War research in aerodynamics – much of it done in Southern California – played a role. It’s likely no accident that Simmons’s connections with Caltech, his study of aerodynamics and interest

in new materials like fiberglass all came together in his creations. Put another way: Simmons and others helped the surfboard graduate from a massive block of wood to a hydrodynamic piece of engineering, a wing ready for takeoff. Yes, the modern surfboard owes some of its origins to the Cold War and the arms race. It is Simmons’ spirit of experimentation and innovation that Yater and his artistic crew are honoring in the exhibit. And Yater represents a natural and appropriate heir to Simmons. A living legend, both as a surfer and as one of the most influential board makers of all time, Yater’s style influenced and shaped the sport from the 1960s to today. Still hard at work into his 90s, the exhibit shows Yater turning some of his energies to art (not that there hasn’t always been an artistic element in his work), which SBMM director Greg Gorga credits Yater with masterminding. If your tastes run more to the authentic and historical rather than the artistic, you may want to check out these museums down south, both of which have tremendous collections of historically important boards. Oceanside’s California Surf Museum boasts a world-class collection, as does early Rincon surfer Dick Metz’s own Surfing Heritage and Culture Center in San Clemente. For an actual Simmons board, visit the California Surf Museum. It weighs in at a not-so-inconsequential 47 pounds. Simmons’ boards were common at Rincon Point in the 1950s. The SBMM exhibit takes us back to a time when surfing – and much of California’s famous beach culture – was gelling under the influence and genius of inventors, craftsmen, entrepreneurs and artists like Bob Simmons, Dick Metz, Rennie Yater and many others. As these passionate and sometimes rebellious men and women developed surfboard technology, surfers put the new tools to amazing use at iconic surf spots along the region’s coast. As a result, an entirely new and unique subculture emerged in California. California’s surf identity is now so strong that our state’s vast challenges and problems can’t diminish or undermine it. Besides providing a deep dive into history, the SBMM exhibit shows that surfboards can be art as well – and we already knew that surfing was a mix of art and athletics. Local resident and historian Vince Burns is researching, writing, and collecting historical photographs and accounts for an upcoming book on the history of Rincon Point and the surrounding area. He is actively seeking participation from the community in the project and is grateful for submissions of photographs for possible inclusion in the book. If you have historical photos of Rincon Point or additional information on early men and women surf pioneers there, get in touch with Vince at vinceburns805@gmail.com and 805-758-0338.

DICK METZ/SURFING HERITAGE AND CULTURE CENTER ARCHIVES

This replica fiber glassed foam board was created in 2017 and is currently on display at Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. It was shaped by Renny Yater and faux painted by Peter St. Pierre. The stylized vignette oil on gesso painting of Rincon Point is by John Comer.

Local eighth grader Brooklyn Shamblin has gained nationwide attention from college scouts and coaches; she decided to verbally commit to play basketball at the University of Southern California when she graduates from Oaks Christian in 2025.

Eighth grade basketball phenom commits to USC BY RYAN P. CRUZ

Many young athletes dream big, but local hooper Brooklyn Shamblin is one of a few teenagers that has the dedication and drive to reach their goals before they even reach high school. Brooklyn is a rare breed. She has yet to play a high school basketball game, but after receiving hype online, nationwide scholarship offers and even recognition from late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant – who asked her to come play at Sage Hill High with his daughter, Gigi, before their untimely death in 2020 – Brooklyn has already declared to play college basketball at the University of Southern California. “It feels great to show other girls that your dreams, the things you’ve been dreaming about doing – it’s possible,” Brooklyn said. Kobe Bryant called her “Lucky Lefty,” and while the southpaw slasher is in fact left-handed, her success is better attributed to her intense work ethic and ability to motivate herself to make her dreams a reality. It’s also in her blood. Her father BJ was a college football player, who played on the last UC Santa Barbara football team before the school discontinued the program in the ‘90s. Her brother Ty was an all-around athlete at Oaks Cristian who now plays wide receiver for USC. The Shamblin family are all lifelong Trojan fans, and now Brooklyn will follow her brother to the school, joining new coach Lindsay Gottlieb to try and revive the legacy of women’s

basketball at USC, which won back-toback national championships in the ‘80s. Brooklyn’s mother, Julie Shamblin, is a teacher and cheerleading coach at Carpinteria High School and hopes her children can show that even in smalltown Carpinteria, huge talent can grow and make it to the top level. “Carpinteria has a lot of great athletes,” Julie said. She said her daughter caught the basketball bug watching her big brother play in high school, and since then Brooklyn has excelled in club circuits and caught the attention of college scouts. Her first offer, from UCSB, came in seventh grade after coach Bonnie Hendrickson saw Brooklyn Play a middle school game at Oaks Christian. After that first offer – and after Brooklyn turned more heads on the Under Armour circuit – more scholarship offers flooded in. She received offers from all Pac 12 conference schools, as well as women’s college basketball powerhouse the University of Connecticut by the time she finished eighth grade. The hype never distracted Brooklyn, Julie said, and it only cemented her confidence in her ability to succeed on a collegiate level. “She had the attitude of, ‘Why not? Why can’t I make it?’” Julie said. “As parents we kind of understand, if you’re willing to do what others aren’t.” This willingness to practice every day, and to stay in the gym for that extra practice, is what gives Brooklyn her

edge. Brooklyn says she is inspired by other female athletes like Simone Biles, who she said is “willing to go outside the limits,” and be a role model for other younger athletes. Brooklyn hopes that her success can help other girls pursue their goals with the same energy. Her game is aggressive. Brooklyn is described as a combo guard, a slasher and a scorer who looks up to women’s basketball stars Sabrina Ionescu and Sue Bird, who have changed the game and opened doors for others behind them. Women’s basketball has boomed in popularity in recent years, and Brooklyn sees herself as part of this new culture. Choosing where to go to college four years before the fact can be daunting, but after meeting coach Gottlieb at USC, Brooklyn decided that is the place where she wanted to be. Gottlieb has been a mentor for her, and she often calls her future coach for advice. “I love her energy, the way she sees the game,” Brooklyn said. Brooklyn will begin her high school career next year at Oaks Christian, and she is looking forward to growing and improving her game before she heads to USC. She said she loves playing against higher level competition, something that helps push her to be better. “I’m definitely ready for the challenge, and to go out and win some championships.” she said.

Empower Fitness athletes show up strong for summer competitions BY RYAN P. CRUZ

Athletes and coaches at local gym and physical training center Empower Fitness have spent the past year working hard, and this summer that hard work has paid off with success in CrossFit and Olympiclevel weightlifting. Empower Fitness took five teams to compete in “The Massacre” – a co-ed CrossFit competition held at Precision Crossfit in Agoura Hills on July 24 – with owner Emlynn Tursick-Hewitt and partner Jedd Hewitt taking first place in the intermediate level.

Empower Fitness coach Janyce Okamato earned a spot at the National Championships in Detroit, where she brought home a win in her weight class.

Over 90 teams in three divisions competed in the event. Empower Fitness sent four teams to compete in the intermediate division and one to compete at the advanced level. “It was so much fun competing and cheering our teammates on,” TursickHewitt said. “All of the Empower Fitness teams had awesome camaraderie.” She said that the win came as a bonus and marks a back-to-back win for the gym at the event. They won the intermediate division in 2019, and after the event was canceled in 2020, they returned this year to take first place once again. “The competitions in Agoura Hills are always attended by such amazing athletes that we were actually very surprised that we pulled off with the win in the intermediate division,” she said. “It must have been Jedd’s rowing skills in the 6k row for time.” The all-day competition consisted of three events in grueling 90-plus degree weather. Through it all, the Empower Fitness athletes came home with a first-place banner in the intermediate, and a fourth place in the advanced division. Members of Empower Fitness enjoy participating in a variety of athletic events, and plans are in place to compete in a Spartan Race at Big Bear on Oct. 16 and The Battle of the Boxes in November. Empower Fitness coach Janyce Okamato also found success this summer in Olympic-level weightlifting. Okamato earned her spot at USA Weightlifting National Championships in Detroit, where she competed in the 55kg weight class and earned herself the win by hitting a 76kg snatch and a 101kg clean and jerk.

LEFT, Kevin Till performs a one-rep max thruster during competition. Okamoto has been a coach at Empower Fitness for a little over a year, coaching technique and programming for strength and performance. “She came to Empower Fitness with a wealth of knowledge and experience in Olympic weightlifting,” Tursick-Hewitt said. “These were not her personal best lifts,

but it was enough to take the win. A lot of strategy, mental prep and toughness play a role at such a high level of competition – and Okamato has that,” she said. Okamato is now training for the American Open Finals, which are scheduled for December.

Carpinteria softball star earns full scholarship going into final year

Warriors softball star and team captain Madison Mora is going into her senior year at Carpinteria, but she already knows where she is headed in the fall of 2022. The rising right-hander, who is a utility infielder and pitcher for the Warriors, verbally committed to play across the country for NCAA Division II school Bloomfield College in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

With two weeks left of the summer program, Carpinteria’s Junior Lifeguards are winding down and preparing for the end of summer competitions. These six junior guards represent the best on the sand and in the water for the week, and are great examples of the program’s emphasis on positive attitude and hard work. Malaya Morente is described by program coordinator Leilanie Silva as an “amazing athlete” who never complains and does everything that is asked of her. “She is always smiling,” Silva said. “Even after a hard day of working out.” Ben Smith is a “ball of joy,” Silva said, “and his positive demeanor is contagious, even on a cold gloomy day. He is always encouraging his peers to do their best all the way to the end.” Instructors say Alena Balla shows up every day ready to go and has been nothing but great during the summer. Balla particularly loves the swim workouts, and Silva said she always does the absolute best she can. “Her consistency and work ethic are awesome,” Silva said. “It’s great to hear her ‘hello’ with a smile every morning at the beach.“ Alissa Neuron is described as a “stellar athlete” with a very sweet personality. “She was super brave at the regional competition and paddled through some huge waves,” Silva said. “She caught us up to get third place in our relay.” Silva said instructors love having Neuron as a part of their team and are proud of how much she has grown as an athlete throughout the summer. Cornelius “Cor” Patterson has one of the best attitudes amongst his group, Silva said, and always finds a way to excel and smile his way through any workout. He’s a strong all-around athlete in every event and has the mental fortitude of a champion. “He’s kind to all his teammates and pushes everyone, especially himself, to be their best,” she said. Walker Scott is one of the program’s strongest swimmers, and instructors said he is competitive, and a joy to be around. “He brings great energy to Junior Guards every day and is always motivating his fellow guards,” Silva said. “A leader by example, Walker always perseveres when the group faces adversity during a workout.”
