Los Padres National Forest closed due to fire conditions

Due to extreme fire conditions and thinned fire resources, the entire Los Padres National Forest was closed to the public on Aug. 31. There are currently over 20 wildfires burning across California and fire resources are stretched thin. In response to the circumstances, the Forest Service has decided to close all national forests across California with a scheduled reopening date of Sept. 17. “We’d all like the fire agencies to have plenty of resources to go around, plenty of time to safely manage any fires, and the certainty that all forest-users would safely and responsibly enjoy their time in the forests,” stated a newsletter from Los Padres National Forest. “Unfortunately, that’s not the case right now and the closure order should help reduce potential new ignitions. No one is happy about this closure and we realize the inconvenience this causes, especially for A-Zone hunters, but everyone please do your part and stay off the forest.”

Central Coast Community Energy pushes for more electric vehicles

Through its clean energy incentive programs, Central Coast Energy customers can now apply for rebates and incentives. Funding for EV and charging stations are being particularly guided to disadvantaged communities which historically have had the least access to EVs and charging stations. Electrify Your Ride offers double incentives, up to $4,000 for income-qualified customers while Charge Your Ride offers up to $10,000 rebate for an EV charger and any needed electrical work. Businesses, commercial property owners and public agencies are also eligible to receive funds for multiple EVs and charging stations. To date, $200,000 remains in Electrify Your Ride program funding and $145,000 is still available for Charge Your Ride. Applications will be accepted for both programs through Sept. 30, 2021. For more information, visit 3CEnergy.org/energy-programs.

Ban on cruise ships continued

Due to local increased Covid-19 infection rates, the Santa Barbara Waterfront Department will be continuing the suspension of all cruise ship visits to Santa Barbara, until March 1, 2022. This will provide time to see how the impacts from Covid-19 unfold, as well as work with the industry and stakeholders to determine the right time to reinstate the program safely. Waterfront director Mike Wiltshire said in a statement, “Our cruise ship program brings millions of dollars to the local economy as well as introduces Santa Barbara to tens of thousands of people from around the world. It is a well-run program that strategically minimizes impacts by scheduling visits only during the shoulder seasons and often mid-week. That being said, the health and safety of our community, as well as the health and safety of cruise ship passengers visiting our area are our top priority, so we have decided to pause the program. We remain optimistic that once we’re back to pre-pandemic status, Santa Barbara will return as a premier destination for the cruise line industry.”

Valtierra sets up owl box at Lake Cachuma for Eagle Scout project

Carpinterian Juan Valtierra is one of the newest members of the community to complete his Eagle Scout project – an owl box in Lake Cachuma. Valtierra is a member of Troop 26. Valtierra credited his friend for the original idea for the owl box. He said his friend had created a list about a different set of projects that needed to be done in the camping grounds around Lake Cachuma. Valtierra then got into contact with the head naturalist at Lake Cachuma, Rosie Bishop, and Ranger Metzger. “The barn owl population was declining due to the amount of owl boxes that would get killed due to the highway that was next to it,” Valtierra said. He said he contacted the ranger and the head naturalist to learn more information about where the barn owls keep their young, how long they stay there for and if they need open space. Then, Valtierra said they found a spot with open space that was not facing the wind – so it wouldn’t harm the animals – and then figured out the logistics of the plan, such as how much it would cost and what materials he needed. Once his project was approved, he created a detailed plan for creating a barn owl box at Lake Cachuma, which involved Boy Scouts and Scoutmasters in Troop 26. And in October 2020, he set out to complete his goal and earn his rank. “The day came, and it was time for set up,” he said. “I basically had gone early in the morning with my parents. We had set up the workspace itself and basically just moved everything around, had stuff set up, and it was time for my Eagle project activity.” Valtierra brought a group of several scouts out to the area, who he split into two groups. One group worked on finishing the owl box itself, while the other dug the hole and installed the metal pole

Juan Valtierra of Troop 26, top right, created a detailed plan for creating a barn owl box at Lake Cachuma. the box would be lying on. “Once they finished that, I was able to have everything ready.” Over the next few days, he said he was able to finish the project, putting in the screws, the adhesive and waterproofing. Finally, he went back to Lake Cachuma to put a plaque of memory in place: the plaque said his name, what the eagle project was about and what troop he was in. After the project was completed, Valtierra said he heard from friends that they had seen smaller animals, and eventually barn owls, in and nearby the box. “I had gotten updates from a few people, seen certain wildlife checking it out,” he said. “Another person saw an eagle or hawk or a couple birds on top of it (…)

And then as of a while back, they began to see some owls checking it out … , and then after that I wrote the report.” Valtierra was recommended for the rank of eagle scout in mid August. He will graduate from the Villanova Preparatory School in Ojai with the class of 2022.

Latino leaders urge “no” on governor’s recall 

In a press conference organized by First District Supervisor Das Williams, the Latino Caucus of California Counties (LCCC), local elected officials and community leaders urged all Santa Barbara County voters to vote “no” on the upcoming recall against Governor Gavin Newsom. A successful recall would roll back progress on key issues for the Latino community, such as protecting immigrants, expanding healthcare, addressing housing and homelessness and closing the digital divide, an LCCC press release stated. “Because of Governor Newsom’s leadership, our local county and cities have been spared devastating cuts that would have rendered us unable to provide critical services during this pandemic,” said Supervisor Williams. “He is also leading the way on tenant protections to ensure renters remain housed and is investing unprecedented amounts of money into real solutions for our homelessness crisis. Stop our state from rolling backward on these achievements and vote NO on the recall of Governor Newsom.” Other speakers and attendees included Congressmember Salud Carbajal, California State Senator Monique Limón, State Assemblymember Steve Bennett, Santa Barbara Mayor Cathy Murillo, Santa Barbara County Supervisor Gregg Hart, Santa Barbara City Councilmember Oscar Gutierrez, Santa Barbara Unified School District Trustee Virginia Alvarez, Carpinteria City Councilmember Natalia Alarcon, Isla Vista Community Services

Congressman Salud Carbajal, center, speaks at a “Stop the Republican Recall” press conference. Carbajal was joined by other elected officials representing Santa Barbara County who warned that a successful recall would roll back progress on key issues for the Latino community, such as protecting immigrants, expanding healthcare, addressing housing and homelessness and closing the digital divide. District Director Ethan Bertrand, former State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, Frank Rodriguez from CAUSE Action Fund, and several members representing the United Domestic Workers. “California is among the states that have had the quickest economic recovery from the pandemic because of the actions we have taken in Sacramento under the leadership of Governor Newsom,” said California State Senator Monique Limón during her remarks. “The reality of not

turning this around and allowing our Governor, who was elected by a great majority of Californians, means we will have 14 months of regulatory instability. Every time I talk to small, medium, and large size businesses they tell us of the importance of regulatory stability. The chaos it will create for our state, the impact it will have on working folks, the impact it will have on every day Californians is what is at stake.”   Voters should have already received

their ballots in the mail. Ballots must be returned by Tuesday, Sept. 14. Ballots can be mailed back, with no postage required, or can be dropped off at an official ballot drop box. Drop box locations can be found at: https:// countyofsb.org/care/elections/voting/ drop-boxes.sbc . Every ballot must have a signature and date on the back to be valid. In Carpinteria, there is an official ballot drop box located at Carpinteria City Hall.

CUSD accepts bid of $2.25 Mil for Whitney property BY EVELYN SPENCE

In a 5-0 vote, the Carpinteria Unified School District board accepted Santa Barbara Agriculture Farm and Education Foundation’s bid of $2.25 million, to the applause of those in the audience. Discussions amongst the board about the bid were made in closed session. The acceptance of the bid allows Sweet Wheel Farm and Flowers to stay on the property; the business has been campaigning and raising funds to do so since the district first announced its intention to sell the property earlier this year, which would have ended the farm’s lease on the property. The farm reached its $2 million fundraising goal last week, founder Leslie Person Ryan confirmed.  Person Ryan emphasized that the farm will still continue fundraising efforts, “to make infrastructure to make it a successful farm” and preserve the property from future development.  Marc Chytilo spoke on behalf of the Santa Barbara Agricultural Farm and Education Foundation prior to the board’s discussion and subsequent decision, stating that those raising money to bid on the farm have “worked very hard to help address the district’s concerns.”  “We are earnestly interested in partnership with the district to both accomplish a win-win, to get the district what it needs to complete the (Summerland) School, to fulfil your mission, and to create an asset and a benefit to Summerland,” Chytilo said. 

In heated exchange, by-trustee area elections discussed

upcoming switch to by-trustee area elections. The board previously voted in February 2018 to make the switch to by-trustee area elections ahead of the Nov. 2022 elections; however, the board discussed on Tuesday pushing the switch to by-trustee elections to Nov. 2024, following a heated exchange with the board and district staff over why the change was being made.  Craig Price, who presented during the meeting, explained that the intended purpose of the switch to by-trustee elections is to increase minority representation and minority voting within a district.  CUSD is making the decision to switch to by-trustee elections, as explained by district staff and Daniel Phillips, a consultant of National Demographics Corporation, to avoid potential costly voting rights discrimination lawsuits that districts across California have faced.  Currently, Carpinteria City Council is also in the processing of making the switch to by-trustee elections.  The redistricting would split the map into five trustee areas, which encompasses Summerland, part of Montecito, Toro Canyon, Carpinteria and other unincorporated areas. In the by-trustee system,

each seat must be filled by a member of each of the five trustee areas; currently, members on the CUSD board of trustees can come from anywhere within the district boundaries.   Per the early results of the 2020 Census, each of the school district’s five trustee areas must contain about 3,600 people. Phillips said that once the final 2020 census results have been released, his office will work on drafting the district’s final maps.  “The intent of these hearings is to educate on the process, and also to solicit input from the public and the board about criteria to use when drawing these trustee areas. After a few months have passed and we’ve gotten the official data and we’ve had time to work with our clients who have June elections, we’ll release your draft maps on Jan. 4,” Phillips said.  But board members held a heated exchange with district staff about switching to by-trustee elections, seemingly challenging their own decision to make the switch in 2018 in the first place.  Board member Jamie Diamond – who was not on the board in 2018 – questioned

whether there could be three by-trustee seats and two at-large seats rather than five by-trustee seats. Phillips clarified that in order to be “legally safe” under the California Voting Rights Act, it must be a “purely by-trustee area election system.” He added that if no one runs for a seat within a specific trustee area, the board could appoint someone to the board within that area.  “That seems more dangerous than voting,” Diamond said.  Board member Andy Sheaffer – who was on the board in 2018 – challenged the board’s 2018 decision to make the switch to by-trustee elections, questioning if there was a need to switch at all. “Someone should be able to explain how it benefits Carpinteria,” Sheaffer said.  Superintendent Diana Rigby stated that the benefit to switching to by-trustee area elections is to avoid a potential lawsuit. “That’s the point. The only benefit… that’s the benefit, is that we will not be as liable to a lawsuit. That’s the reason why we voted for (this),” she said.  In response, Diamond said “that’s really sad that that’s our only benefit to our town.”  Discussion on the matter will be brought back to the board, per Price. 

Attendance

The district welcomed 2,090 students back to its campuses last week, out of the 2,112 total enrolled, according to Superintendent Rigby. “Each day, we are collecting the enrollment figures, and we’ll have the final numbers next time we meet,” Rigby said. 

54% of county fully vaccinated as new cases pop up CVN REPORT

54.5% of the county is now fully vaccinated as of Aug. 26, the county has announced, compared to 54.3% last week. Currently within the county, approximately 1 in 3 eligible community members are unvaccinated. The county also reported that of the Covid-19-related hospitalizations between May and July of this year, 88% are unvaccinated. “An increase is being seen in children under the age of 12,” a weekly update from the county read. Between the week of Aug. 20 and Aug. 26, the county saw 869 new cases; currently, there are 749 active Covid-19 cases, three new deaths and 75 hospitalizations, for a total of 38,682 cases and 475 deaths. There is one new death to report on Aug. 30. An individual between the ages of 50 and 69 years old, who had underlying health conditions and resided in the city of Santa Maria, passed away. The California Department of Public Health also reaffirmed that masking indoors is required at all K-12 schools. Schools do not have the authority to optout from enforcing the mandate. “To be clear: failure to enforce the mask requirement breaches not only a legal duty, but also the first and foremost duty of every school leader – to protect students,” the department said in a press release. To learn where to get vaccinated within the county, visit publichealthsbc.org/ vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, find a site at publichealthsbc.org/testing.

No on Bailard Avenue project

Santa Barbara County is currently proposing that a large, three-story apartment building be built on the property directly behind the existing Casitas Village condominiums. The proposed project would create 173 apartments on the seven acres that currently houses four homes and the Bailard Organic Farm. In stark contrast, the Villa Del Mar condominiums have 230 condominiums on 36 acres. This new project is being touted as an affordable housing project; however, only 41 of the apartments would be deemed affordable. The others would rent for top dollar. Surrounding area residents think this project is wrong for Carpinteria. The apartment complex will create more traffic on Bailard Avenue and surrounding streets and would cause major parking problems. The Bailard Farm is one of the contributors to the Farm Cart here in Carpinteria and helps provide produce for 1,500 weekly farm boxes that are distributed locally. Once we start paving over agricultural land there is no going back. To learn more about the proposed project and sign the petition against this project, go to savebailardfarm.com. There will also be a table at the Farmers Market with more information and postcards to mail into the appropriate representatives.

Cannabis agreement, community character

Carpinteria is a small town with big pride and many active, thoughtful residents participating in public debate on issues of importance. Cannabis has had its extended period in the hot seat under the community’s microscope and provoking passions on both sides. That’s why the agreement announced in last week’s CVN, “Cannabis Farmers and Watchdog Group Reach Agreement” (Vo. 27, No. 49), is such an encouraging development. Neighbors who at one time seemed light years apart found some common ground and a way to work together. Clearly the smell is the issue with cannabis. As far as I can tell, the industry has settled in nicely while proving itself conscious of its surroundings and willing to blend in. Neighbors who are downwind bear the brunt of the odor issue, but otherwise, cannabis is economically fruitful and fits in with the established agricultural footprint of the valley. Impressively, these neighbors were fed up with a smell and took action by standing up to a sizable industry. Neighbors imposed their own odor control standards on farmers, and farmers listened while offering practical solutions based on their own expertise. Constructive dialogue always starts from a place of believing there are real problems with real solutions that can fix them. It’s a good thing when that dialogue leads to mutual understanding, particularly when approaching complex issues like cannabis – which was illegal just a handful of years ago. I am proud of Carpinterians involved in this agreement for being of high enough character to see past their differences with minds open enough to find a shared vision for a better future.

Public will vote to save Parking Lot 3

The core issue of the forthcoming Initiative to Save Parking Lot 3 is whether or not Carpinterians want the city to lease our public beach and downtown parking lot to a private developer. Ancillary impacts of this proposed private lease involve two additional public parcels, resulting in the loss of 7,500 square feet of community garden and placement of public parking against private homes along the coastal open space corridor in the downtown beach neighborhood. No additional facts are needed. Overwhelming public comments against privatization have been dismissed and ignored. With great confidence, the city continued to forge ahead with its pro-lease-agenda, despite a lack of consent from Carpinterians who own this public land. In last week’s CVN (Vol. 2, No. 49) our mayor posed several questions: Is the proposed lease building good will and better friendship? Clearly not. Will such a lease be beneficial to all concerned? Absolutely not. The City Council has heard from more than 350 of our neighbors in our downtown beach neighborhood who have voiced long lists of concerns. Is it fair for City Council to lease public land without consent of most Carpinterians? Carpinterians think not, hence the grassroots Initiative to Save Parking Lot 3. Our mayor informed Carpinterians, “The reason the city did not initiate a ballot measure was because of the thousands of dollars it will cost.” Thanks for letting Carpinterians know just how highly the city values our opinions. After all, the council had an opportunity to pay attention and respond accordingly when over 1,000 like-minded opinions were given at no cost. The council also had an opportunity to hold an Advisory Vote, yet it chose not to. Carpinterians are looking forward to voting on the Initiative to Save Parking Lot 3 in the November 2022 election.

Public land, public vote

There seems to be some confusion over the Surfliner Inn commercial development project. City Council recently gave conceptual approval of the Surfliner Inn to be constructed on city-owned property. This proposed hotel is a private, for-profit business venture to be built on

undeveloped land that was gifted to the city of Carpinteria by the Southern Pacific Railroad for “public purposes.” A petition is currently being circulated within the city. This petition will allow the residents of Carpinteria to decide whether a for-profit hotel should be built on public property. It is simple: public land, public vote. Please sign the petition.

Another view on the Initiative to Save Parking Lot 3

I am a lifetime, eighth generation South Coast resident. Our daughter is a student at Carpinteria High School. I am retired after a local career in land use and water. I have followed the Surfliner Project since it was proposed. We live in a representative democracy where we elect our fellow Carpinteria residents who we trust to run our city government. If you don’t like the job they are doing, don’t re-elect them. The initiative process is the worst way to make law. All legislation has some problem or other, with the initiative it is virtually, practically, impossible to amend the law to make it better once it is passed. You need to bring a new initiative with the huge cost and difficulty that causes. Please trust the City Council you and I elected to get this right. If the project is not right for our community, trust our City Council to understand that and act accordingly. On the other hand, let’s hear all the facts and find out what our community as a whole thinks about this project. Remember there are 14,000 of us. Yes, we know we have a few very loud residents in the immediate area and what they think about this project. They certainly have not been shy about expressing themselves at council meetings. In our democracy the initiative proponents get to vote for council just like the rest of us. They can run for council themselves.  Please let the process work itself out in regular course and you and I can tell our council, who care about our community as much as any of us, what you think about the Surfliner, and then let them vote.

Unvaccinated politician

I read an article in the Washington Post about an unvaccinated politician who died of Covid-19. He had been in favor of everyone deciding for themselves. He didn’t believe he was at risk because he was healthy. His wife is devastated, and she doesn’t want her husband’s choice and his regret about not getting the vaccine to be used to promote the vaccine. I don’t understand that. Why wouldn’t you want to protect others in any way you can? Grieve, but then try to save others from having to go through the pain you’re experiencing. Maybe she doesn’t want the immature people to throw guilt, laugh, or say “I told you so.” Is it that wanting to save face, mistakes, shame, guilt and apologies are difficult? If so, it’s time to grow up. Is it that forgiveness and compassion are difficult? If so, it’s time to grow up. Growing up means you stop thinking it’s all about you. It means you don’t have to experience it yourself to put yourself in another’s shoes. You start seeing the world through others’ eyes. A teenager once told me that he is shocked when an adult acts like a child. It leaves him speechless. I’m always surprised too. When lives are at stake, it doesn’t leave me speechless, obviously. Please get the vaccine. One’s liberty doesn’t come before another’s life and pursuit of happiness. If you still have vaccine hesitancy, visit the Santa Barbara Department of Public Health for answers to common concerns: publichealthsbc. org/not-sure-about-the-vaccine. If you haven’t gotten it because you’re confident that you’re healthy enough to survive it, think about what would happen to your family if you’re wrong. Mostly, think about the lives of others.

Fed up

People in California are fed up with the direction California is going. Democrats and Independents want to recall Newsom. Former State Sen. Gloria Romero (D-East L.A.), a prominent Democrat and the first woman to serve as Senate Majority Leader in California, has endorsed Larry Elder.  Why should Newsom be recalled? Because he is a corrupt, inept dictatorial governor. His severe Covid-19 restrictions have led to the closure of many small businesses and have negatively affected the state’s economy. And why did Newsom, via an executive order, force nursing homes to take in Covid-19 sick patients, resulting in more senior deaths? Most recently, a report released by the California State Auditor revealed glaring problems of mismanagement in key state agencies under Newsom’s control, such as $2 billion in unemployment fraud. Numerous other problems include the highest state income tax, highest poverty rate in nation, felons let out of prison leading to more crime, non-Californians getting everything for free, open border,

Time to raise the spiritual voice

Why are the churches silent today? Jesus wasn’t. (Neither was Moses) Jesus stepped into the public square and took a position related to pressing matters like disease prevention, high interest rates charged to the poor, discrimination, violent factions, empire building, fair taxation and big government. Back then, the issue in prevention was widespread “demon” infestation; today it is vaccine fear and mental health. Then the issue was temple money changers;

today it is payday loan predators. Then the issue was mistreatment of Samaritans and displaced fishermen; today it is immigrants and minorities. Then the issue was zealotry and Peter’s sword; today “liberty” gun action advocates. Then the issue was Rome’s legions in Palestine; today it is America’s endless wars and foreign occupations. Then the issue was the rich “casting in” (paying taxes) only on their unearned excess, not their actual earnings; today it is regressive taxation. Then the issue was adult children sidestepping care of their elderly parents (Jesus called this process “Corban,” or shifting responsibility to the government); today it is federal and state takeover of local and private welfare programs. It is time for the churches to encourage civic participation by their members, stressing politically ethical (constitutional) approaches and policies.

Obituaries

Jessie Espinoza Salvador 12/11/1928 – 8/20/21

Annette Fisher 7/12/1962 – 8/26/2021

Annette Joyce Gonzales, the most beautiful soul, entered the world on July 12, 1962. On Aug. 26, 2021, Annette Fisher gained her wings after a fierce two-year battle with cancer. She passed at Serenity House in Santa Barbara alongside her family and her husband, Dan William Fisher. Her pride and joy were her husband, her family – especially her beloved grandchildren – and her community of Carpinteria. She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarinda Naranjo and Arnold Gonzales. Annette is survived by her brothers, Jody Gonzales, Eli Gonzales and Robert Gonzales, her sister, Jeanette, her children, Kenny Raught (Katrina), Richie Raught, Nicole Hammer (Ryan), and grandchildren, Maddox, Mathis, Maverick, Gunner, Hendrix, Britton and Getty, along with multitudes of nieces and nephews. Annette and Dan moved to Carpinteria in March 2012. Annette immediately inserted herself into volunteering within the community. She began her involvement with Carpinteria Education Foundation and Orchard 2 Ocean, and then found her home with the California Avocado Festival, where she was deemed “the Queen of Merch” for her glowing smile that never faded despite the long hours of working. She was incredibly passionate about Relay For Life, most especially after she herself was diagnosed. Despite Annette’s battle with cancer and constant treatments, Annette continued to give, saying it helped her heart. During the Covid-19 pandemic, she created many different fundraisers for restaurants and businesses that were affected, and so many people were appreciative of her efforts. Anyone who met Annette immediately felt like they were the only person in her world. She had an ability to make your heart smile and to find the most genuine part of you. She made you feel like a better person after being and talking with her. She had this mysterious power of leaving an indelible mark on your soul. After coming to know her in any way, it was clear that Annette had immeasurable love for her family and her people, and a deep passion for giving back to her amazing community that now holds her heavenly Carpheart forever. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Annette’s name to Serenity House of Santa Barbara. Services will be held at Carpinteria Lion’s Club on Sept. 19, 2021 at noon.

Jessie Espinoza Salvador, 92, of Carpinteria, California, left this world peacefully to join her Lord and Savior on Aug. 20, 2021, at home with her children at her side. Jessie was born the sixth of seven children to German Santiago Espinosa and Irinea Torres de Espinosa, in Colton, California on Dec. 11, 1928. Jessie and her husband, Roman “Roy,” settled in Carpinteria in 1948 and raised their family there. They were proud members of the American Legion and Filipino Community Club in Santa Barbara. Jessie worked at the Carpinteria packing house and Santa Barbara restaurants before joining the staff at La Cumbre Golf and Country Club from 1962 to 2018. During these years, she became known for her words to live by, “One day at a time… Just keep going… Don’t stop” and her homemade quesadillas for the club’s annual Cinco de Mayo event. Jessie is survived by her children, Lino (Mary), Juan (Rosalie), and Pene (Steve); her grandchildren, Roman (Ailene), Nicolas (Victoria), Sharon (Alex), Owen (Kelly) and Aaron (Lindsay); her great grandchildren, Stella, Santinolino, Sia, Milan, Gian, Ty, Austin, Bryce, Logan and Mirabel, and her many nieces and nephews.

Board of Supervisors adopts CarpinteriaSummerland Fire District protection plan

BY EVELYN SPENCE

At its Tuesday meeting, the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors approved the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire District protection plan. The plan splits the area into nine geographic divisions to tackle fire hazards, and designates several preattack areas, according to David Kerr, who presented during the meeting. The plan is based on five generic goals, Kerr explained: minimize wildlife threat to life safety; reduce the wildlife threat to values and assets at risk; develop a plan that sets priorities to mitigate risks and hazards identified; embrace the resiliency of the district; and improve accountability, public trust and efficiency to implement action items identified. The fire district completed a wildfire assessment that analyzed wildfire hazards based on fire intensity, ember exposure, defensibility and structural damage protentional, as well as the possible impacts of climate change. The plan is organized around district and community programs, emergency notification systems, structure ignitability and hardening, and a fuels mitigation strategy, Kerr said. “One of the main concerns that we saw where we were looking at the community was this idea of defensible space,” Kerr said, explaining that the district has a lack of defensible space. He added that the county and its residents need to focus on heavy maintenance and removing non-native trees and invasive shrubs, to build “defensible space.” “That’s one of the main action items that the district is going to take is to work with willing communities to build this idea of defensible space. We’re starting to see that out in the Ortega Ridge Area; we’re starting to see that out on Shepard Mesa; our neighbors have started to work together to achieve this,” Kerr said. He added that the district hopes to implement a five-foot compostable zone around each house in high fire risk areas. The district will also focus on maintenance of the Thomas Fire firelines and

The plan is organized around district and community programs, emergency notification systems, structure ignitability and hardening, and a fuels mitigation strategy. firebreaks. There are also several key “preattack zones” the district will focus on, per the presentation. In Summerland, the district will look at funding to expand the existing neighborhood chipping program; and in Toro Canyon, the district wants to establish road names and signage for roads east of Toro Canyon Road between Linda Vista and Viola Road, among other actions. “Our hope is that it proves focus, and we hope it allows the fire district to look at smaller, achievable actions,” Kerr said. Supervisor Das Williams thanked the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection district for its work. “The community has a high degree of confidence in you,” Williams said, speaking to the CSFD staff. “We look forward to working together in the future to make sure we can prepare for really, the inevitable, which in our area, is catastrophic wildfires… and we need to create more defense.” Supervisor Gregg Hart also congratulated the people who worked on the 170-page plan. “The collaborative approach that developed this plan is really a model for how we want to do these things throughout the county,” Hart said. “There are specific strategies for specific neighborhoods that are very thoughtful, and the overall global ideas about having preattack zones established in advance of an incident… and opportunities to connect the fuel treatments in ag land above these really vulnerable communities are really great ideas.” Fire Marshall Rob Rappaport thanked the board for their time. “We are very excited about this plan,

and moving forward, we already have a lot of fuel treatment plans… On a great note, we’ve been able to get some funding in the line of grants, and we plan on doing some work in the very near future,” Rappaport said.

Homeless encampments in Santa Barbara County

The board also received a presentation on homeless encampments within the county, before moving to adopt a new Encampment Resolution Strategy, which includes $1,482,500 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. The new encampment strategy aims to close 45 camps within the county over three years, and put 60% of people into alternative shelters, among others. It also hopes to increase access to shelter, create permanent housing units and keep funding in place to fight homelessness. “It may make it possible to exceed the goal of 45 resolved camps, again, if alternate shelter is available,” County

Housing and Community Development Division Deputy Director Dinah Lockhart said. There have been over 100 homeless encampments across the county recorded in recent months. Lockhart said each site is assessed for the protentional danger to life and property; proximity to residents; the impact on sensitive environment or water quality; if it prevents public use of parks; and other criminal activity. Santa Barbara County Community Service Director George Chapjian also presented on the item, identifying strategies for tackling homelessness within the county. “As we know, solutions to address homeliness are complex, and many communities are challenged in the same ways we are. Covid has exacerbated the problem but has also offered us greater opportunities to get people off the streets. The amount of money we have received in the past two years has been unprecedented,” Chapjian said. He added that while “the weight of this issue is heavy” the county was able to accomplish several goals during the past two years in regard to homelessness within the county. Per board staff, over the past six months, county staff have been able to create 339 rapid re-housing units, 46 permanent housing units and 137 temporary housing beds. Staff has also received $8 million in funding to help with homelessness in the area.

CVN REPORT

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

Coastal Cleanup Day is back

On Saturday, Sept. 18, from Carpinteria to Guadalupe, hundreds of people will be working together to clean Santa Barbara County beaches and waterways. This year’s Coastal Cleanup Day – an international day of volunteer action – will offer community members a chance to give back to their favorite beach, park or creek by helping to clean up trash and debris. Last year, volunteers picked up 17,441 pieces of litter. “With more than 27 sites from Carpinteria to Guadalupe, Coastal Cleanup Day unites our community for a common cause – clean beaches,” stated a press release from Explore Ecology. “Coastal Cleanup Day is an amazing event because it is not just countywide or statewide, it’s a global event,” said Lydia Ballantine, Coastal Cleanup Day coordinator for Explore Ecology. “There will be people all around the world collecting litter on Sept. 18, working together to pick up trash before it ends up in our oceans. It’s also a great opportunity for people to learn where the trash in our oceans is coming from and to become educated about the sources of and solutions to ocean trash, whether that’s changing individual habits or pushing for bigger changes.” Data collected on Coastal Cleanup Day is sent to an international database which is used to support laws and policies that aim to reduce plastic production and pollution. Volunteers can become citizen scientists by installing the Clean Swell app on their phones and using the app to record the trash they collect on Coastal Cleanup Day. Clean Swell will upload the information to the Ocean Conservancy’s global ocean trash database. The data delivers

Volunteers who don’t use the app can record what they find on data sheets available at each site on the morning of the event. There is also a Google form available for those who wish to enter their data online. In Carpinteria, cleanup crews will be at Jelly Bowl Beach, Santa Claus Lane, Carpinteria Creeks and Carpinteria State

Beach. Coastal Cleanup Day is administered statewide by the California Coastal Commission. In Santa Barbara County, the event is organized by Explore Ecology, with the support of the county of Santa Barbara Resource Recovery and Waste Management and the cities of Santa Barbara and Goleta along with the help of non-profits, businesses and individuals.

Volunteers of all ages can participate at any of the 2021 cleanup sites. Pre-registration is not required but is encouraged. Volunteers should bring cleanup materials to reduce waste and decrease the cleanup’s plastic footprint. If volunteers don’t have supplies, there will be plenty available at each site.

Settlement agreement helps restore flows to the Ventura River

Santa Barbara Channelkeeper’s advocacy for Ventura River reached a critical milestone on Aug. 5, when the city of Ventura, for the first time in history, curtailed all pumping at its well field at Foster Park, specifically for the purpose of restoring flows to the parched river ecosystem. Within days, the sounds of water, croaking frogs and children playing were audible as flows rebounded. The cessation of pumping at Foster Park represents a significant achievement in Santa Barbara Channelkeeper’s ongoing efforts to protect the Ventura River. For many decades unlimited pumping at Foster Park at times resulted in degraded downstream water quality and public trust resources and the destruction of endangered species habitat. In an attempt to restore flows to the river, Channelkeeper filed a groundbreaking lawsuit in 2015 to challenge the city’s over-pumping. After years of legal proceedings and negotiations, Channelkeeper and the city of Ventura reached a partial settlement agreement that established a minimum river flow threshold that would trigger cessation of pumping. This summer, when flows reached those benchmarked levels, the city ceased all pumping, marking a positive step forward for the health of the river, its ecosystems, and the surrounding community.

After extensive advocacy from Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, the city of Ventura has halted all pumping at its well field at Foster Park – the first time in history. Despite this positive step, flow thresholds still fall below recently published recommendations from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and may need to be modified in the future to fully protect the river and endangered species.

Today, as California and the western United States experience record-breaking drought conditions, a secure and sustainable water supply is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. In addition to the ecological value it provides, the Ventura

River is a primary source of drinking water, providing all of the water used in the Ojai Basin and the Ventura River valley. The river is also culturally significant, providing access to nature and recreational opportunities for surrounding communities. When the river goes dry, it indicates that human use is exceeding the capacity of a limited resource in ways that are detrimental and unsustainable. A thriving river means a sustainable water future. “Our water supplies are severely limited, and unfortunately it does not appear that conditions will improve in the near future,” said Benjamin Pitterle, Channelkeeper’s science and policy director. “It’s critical that we include our precious ecosystems in the final balance of how we manage our water resources.” Channelkeeper’s legal action against the city of Ventura is still pending as the city carries out a water adjudication involving all water right holders in the watershed. The adjudication will allocate available water supplies to existing water right holders as well as identify a “physical solution” that should fully and permanently protect flows in the Ventura River.

Tween raises $23k for skate park

When Isabella Stovall, 11, heard about a youth fundraising competition to help build the Carpinteria Skate Park, she was immediately interested. She loves contests and challenges, she said, and she was especially excited about the top prize: a Rad Power Bikes electric bike worth $1,500. Now, on the last week of the contest, Stovall has emerged as not only the front runner in the competition – by a landslide, according to contest organizer Beth Cox – but an exceptional fundraiser, bringing in close to $23,000 in donations to the Carpinteria Skate Foundation in a matter of weeks. Stovall, who lives in Carpinteria, attends Riviera Ridge School, formerly Marymount School, where she is in the sixth grade. She learned about the contest from her mother, Jessica, who read the announcement posted by Cox on social media. Cox, her family, and her company Grant Cox Enterprises (GCE), have been involved with fundraising for the skatepark over the years, and particularly during this last push to raise the remaining $100,000 of the foundation’s $1.5 million goal. The contest’s prize, a Rad bike, is a donation from GCE and Cox’s son, Carter. “I learned a lot from Beth (Cox) about giving back and supporting the community,” said Stovall. “She is very inspiring.” Stovall started asking her friends, family and neighbors if they would like to donate and she quickly raised a few hundred dollars. “However, I knew I needed to do more if I wanted to win, so I started calling local businesses asking for corporate sponsors,” she said. “I am motivated to help build the skate park so my friends and I can have a new fun place to enjoy, but I am also motivated to win that bike!”

DEBRA HERRICK

Energized by the dream of a skate park and motivated by a prize bike, 11-year-old Isabella Stovall has raised close to $23,000 dollars to help build the Carpinteria Skate Park.

City clears ground for skate park

The city of Carpinteria has removed a row of Eucalyptus trees from the plot of land alongside City Hall that will soon become the Carpinteria Skate Park. The tree work began last week and will be completed by the end of this week. Arborists and the city biologist were consulted before starting work, according to Tiffany Smith of Carpinteria Parks and Recreation. Once the trees are completely removed, a gravel parking lot can also be built. The chips from the trees will be used as mulch in parks and the bluffs and some large, straight sections of logs are being saved to turn into benches, Smith said. Other work in preparation for construction includes continuing to clear items stored in the old roller hockey rink and to recycle or give to surplus, if possible. Chris Willingham, owner of Santa Barbara Tree Care, and his crew assisted the city with the tree removal. The next task to building the skate park is to put the project out for bids which is expected to happen in the next two to three weeks. “From the City Parks POV… this project is ‘ripe’!” Smith added. —Debra Herrick

To raise the $23,000, Stovall sought out individual and corporate sponsors. Top donors in Stovall’s campaign include Austin and Kai Lampson ($5,000), Steve Zimmerman ($5,000), Murphy King Realty ($5,000), Grant Cox Enterprises ($2,000), Aaron and Gina Crocker ($1,000), Ryan Williams ($1,000), Ken and Dinah Stovall ($1,000) and Sally Green ($1,000). Additionally, dozens of individuals contributed donations under $500. Cox noted that Stovall has stood out from the pack in this competition. “She’s been so gung-ho and gone around for corporate sponsors. She’s on fire and I don’t think anybody else has raised this much,” Cox said. “She’s one of those kids who sees something and goes after it.” Prior to raising funds for the skate park, Stovall volunteered for the 93013 Fund; and after the Thomas Fires, Stovall and her friend, Whitney Welch, baked cookies and wrote cards to the firefighters at the Carpinteria Fire Station. Stovall said she likes to be involved in the community: “I feel good about that, and I like to give back to the community where I can. My mom says it’s really important to give back but it’s also something I like to do for fun.” On Friday, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Island Brewing Company, Stovall, Cox and others will be selling raffle tickets for prizes, including three skateboards that Jessica Stovall is donating, $500 worth of merchandise from Powell Peralta Skateboards and $250 in cash. Cox will also announce the winner of the Rad bike. Stovall said that she is crossing her fingers and hoping to win the electric bike, but if she doesn’t, she’s still glad that she helped raise money. “I’m excited to enjoy (the skate park). If I win or not, it’s a very good cause.”

RUM CARAMEL IN A DARK CHOCOLATE SHELL!

Happy 88th big Joe Lazaro!

Love, from your adoring family The chips from the trees recently removed from the future site of the Carpinteria Skate Park will be used as mulch in parks and the bluffs and some large, straight sections of logs are being saved to turn into benches.

Tragedy strikes the loving foursome, so Fanny moves them into a less expensive French artists’ colony where Fanny and her daughter Belle can study painting. There, Fanny meets the 10-years-younger, fledgling and talented author, Robert. Instantly they begin a love affair that survives her horrid divorce and results in their decades’ long marriage and romantic life together. They travel and live around the world as Stevenson’s writing becomes a fine literary legacy which remains today on “must read” lists everywhere.

Mitlenatch migration

CVN

IN THE NATUREHOOD NANCY BARON This summer, my annual migration to Mitlenatch Island off the coast of British Columbia was an obstacle course. First, there were three Covid-19 tests and a complex crossing at the U.S./Canada border. Then, my flight to the coast was cancelled due to wildfires in British Columbia. In a panic, I drove two hours to another town where I caught the last plane before a shroud of smoke shut down the region’s airports for days. I made it to the departure point just in time for the scheduled boat ride to Mitlenatch. When my friend Alison Watt and I finally ferried our gear the last 100 yards to shore by rowboat and stepped onto the island, I was ecstatic. The resident raven with distinctive white feather shafts flew overhead with his “Quirk Quirk” call. He tucked a wing and flipped upside down – a salute. This raven, whom I call Quirk, and his mate, nicknamed Quark, arrived as a pair in 1999 only three years after Alison and I started our annual summer pilgrimage here. It felt like a greeting between old friends. Mitlenatch has changed a lot over the 25 years that Alison and I have volunteered as park warden/naturalists as part of the Mitlenatch Island Stewardship Team. Each day of our weeklong rotation, we talk to visitors who arrive by boat, answer questions, do bird surveys and keep records. No overnight campers are allowed. Mostly we are alone with the island’s denizens, living in our Robinson Crusoe-style cabin made of driftwood. Mitlenatch Island Nature Park is the largest seabird colony in the Strait of Georgia, between Vancouver Island and the British Columbia mainland. It is designated as an IBA — one of the world’s Important Bird Areas. It is shaped a bit like a dumbbell with a narrow neck. Walking from Camp Bay across to Northwest Bay takes less than five minutes along a dry grassy path that feels like walking on the back of a golden animal. Each year holds new surprises. On this August day, we are startled to see 200 belching and bellowing Steller’s sea lions lounging on the rocks at the mouth of Camp Bay. Usually, the sea lions head further north to Alaska. A Humpback whale glided past feeding close to shore. Humpbacks have only recently returned to the Strait of Georgia as they were hunted out long ago. Mitlenatch has no water except for rain. The animals are adapted to it – but not the baking heat that gripped the Pacific Northwest this summer. I had heard that the Virginia Rails, a marsh bird that has somehow managed to breed on this dry island, were struggling. The previous volunteers found a chick staggering around before it died. So as soon as we arrived, I put out water in shallow bucket tops at various locations. No sooner had I done so then a rail chick emerged and stood in the water. Alison and I continued to catch glimpses of the happy little water bird scuttling in the lens of water. Even a garter snake took a turn. One evening, I stumbled across a Rough-skinned newt in the makeshift watering hole, a species I didn’t even know was found on the island. The heat dome in British Columbia has knocked out a lot of life. It coincided

Steller’s sea lions trail the author’s kayak. with low tides which exposed mussels, barnacles, beach crabs and even sea stars, virtually cooking them and leaving a stinking rotting mess. The tragedy for intertidal life seemed to turn into a bounty for the island’s Glaucous-winged Gulls, which are scavengers. This year many gull pairs successfully reared two, and even three, chicks. Predators seem fewer too. There is scat evidence near the river otter’s den, showing they are back to eating seafood rather than gull chicks. Bald eagles, which typically treat the gull colony like an Albertson’s, are seldom seen. Even the Pigeon Guillemots, little black seabirds with red feet that nest in fissures in the cliffs, seem to be doing well, hunting their favorite long red-colored blennies. With these eel-like fish dangling from their bills, they fly around until they are sure no predators are watching. Then they dive into their cliffside crevice to feed their hungry chicks.

ALISON WATT

Each day, Alison and I circumnavigate the island in our gut-bustlingly heavy kayak which is essential for counting breeding seabirds on the cliffs. The numbers of the Pelagic Cormorants are down, but the numbers of Double-crested Cormorants are holding steady as are the Black Oystercatchers. Oystercatchers are especially vulnerable to predators because they lay their eggs in the open. But this year, we have seen five young chicks that made it. It is also quiet this year because there are no boats from the U.S. But a pop-up industry of whale watching boats bring Canadian tourists to circle the island and look at the sea lions and whales. Boaters must keep a sharp eye out for humpbacks, which emerge out of nowhere for a quick breath between feeding dives. At times, we have had to intercept these boats in our kayak and remind them of the law to remain at least 100 meters away from marine mammals.

A Humpback whale dives close to shore.

NANCY BARON

Most evenings we walk across the island to watch the sun set from Northwest Bay. We sleep in a grassy meadow under a giant bowl of stars, listening to the palaver of gulls which goes on all night. The big dipper skims the horizon – and in the darkness, we can hear the exhalations of whales. Ahh Mitlenatch.

MARLENE GRAHAM

It takes only a couple of minutes to walk across the back of Mitlenatch, but several hours to circumnavigate by kayak and count seabirds.

Rotary Club Morning learns about community energy

At last week’s Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning meeting, Oswaldo Martinez, the energy public management associate of Central Coast Community Energy, spoke to the group about the agency’s new program in Carpinteria. Central Coast Community Energy will be taking over services in southern Santa Barbara County, including Carpinteria, in October. The agency controls how and where electricity is generated, while PG&E and Southern California Edison will still deliver electricity and send customers the bills. Supervisor Das Williams was appointed Central Coast Community Energy Policy Board vice chair in June. For customers who do not want to participate in the program, they may opt-out by December 2021.

Last Wednesday, the Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning spoke with Oswaldo Martinez, the energy public management associate of Central Coast Community Energy.

CA$H ON THE SPOT The Rotary Club of Carpinteria Noon welcomed speakers Alana Yanez, left, and Mary Scott from the Working Cats Program last Thursday.

Rotary Club Noon hears about hardworking cats and ASAP

Working Cats Program executive director Alana Yanez and coordinator Mary Scott visited the Rotary Club of Carpinteria Noon last Thursday to discuss their work in the program. The program serves as a subset of the Animal Shelter Assistance Program (ASAP). Both spoke about the history of ASAP and how the animal sheltering community acted during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Working Cats Program works with feral cats, also called working cats, to help them live happy lives. Although feral cats are not social, the program helps them continue hunting mice, raps, gophers and other rodents, and works to place them at new homes such as small farms, warehouses or open fields. For more information about the Working Cat Program, contact Mary Scott at (805) 683-3368 or visit asapcats.org.

ON THE ROAD CVN visits the Cowboy State

Morning productivity frames your whole day

CVN

WELLNESS WARRIOR LEAH HARDING I am often a harried mom. My internal clock runs about four minutes slow. I always think I have time for one more thing before I need to leave. Four minutes isn’t the worst in punctuality, but I realize it still means I’m late. So, trying to get more “things” done more efficiently ultimately helps my punctuality and makes me less frazzled. To get more productive and punctual, I recently looked at my morning routine. I’m not only trying to get myself ready, I’m also trying to get my son ready. I felt like I was starting my day slowly and with little intention which followed me for the rest of the day, causing my motivation to stall when it came to things I had to get done. When I took a step back and detailed all the little things my morning consisted of, I was impressed by how much I do each morning as “the norm.” There’s the coffee and the dog walk and making my son’s lunch, just to name a few. When I zoomed out a bit more to see the big picture, I noticed it was my morning habits that I’d gotten into a bad routine with, not just my “to dos.” When I first woke up, I would grab my phone and start reading the news to get my brain functioning by having to pay attention to what I’m reading. Here’s the bad routine part: before reading the news, I would spend 5-10 minutes reading my emails, personal and business. You may be thinking, “that sounds pretty trivial.” But because I wasn’t responding to those emails until much later in the day, when I sat down to do my work, I would end up reading them a second time before responding. So, I wasn’t saving any time reading them in the morning. Also, I used to kick myself for not getting up earlier, even by 10 minutes. I relish my quite time before the house awakens. I often think that if I had more time to “be” in the morning, I’d be on time a lot more.

“I felt like I was starting my day slowly and with little intention which followed me for the rest of the day, causing my motivation to stall when it came to things I had to get done.” (I haven’t tested this theory completely yet, but I’ll let you know). Had I not read those emails, I could have gotten up earlier! I’ve decided to start new habits this school year. I’m skipping the emails from bed in the morning and I’m also limiting the amount of news I read when I wake up. With more time, I’m ready before my son and I can drink some tea in silence. I have a few extra minutes before I start talking about Minecraft or start making pancakes for breakfast. Finally, I started making my son’s school lunch before I go to bed. It takes half the time to do it at night than it does when I’m trying to get 15 other things done in the morning. Ultimately, quiet time before the day starts really frames my day so that I want to get my work done and get my workouts in. It helps me to be a more loving mother and wife. And I like to think it helps me be more on time as well. Looking at my morning routine was enlightening. What can you notice or change about your morning routine to make you more productive? Maybe it’s showering at night so there’s one less thing to do in the AM. Maybe it’s setting out your workout clothes, so you get it done first thing. Or perhaps it’s getting up 10 minutes earlier so you can spend that time in quiet reflection. Tell me, what can you change to help your morning productivity?

THROWBACK

A biography of Rincon Point’s iconic photo BY VINCE BURNS

As things go, it wasn’t exactly the crime of the century. But when Steve Bissell (b. 1947) and a friend drove up the big hill behind Rincon Point in February 1973, ignoring a few “No Trespassing” signs along the way, the resulting masterpiece became a crucial element – the defining photograph – in Rincon’s rise to surfing stardom. After a particularly beautiful day at the Point, Bissell had the idea to see what the view might be from the top of Rincon Hill. The usually locked gates were fortuitously open, the sky was beautiful, the incoming waves were lined up to perfection, the foreground grass was spectacularly green and Steve’s friend Gary Ward conveniently framed the photo. Some quick positioning by Ward and a few Nikon snaps later, the raiders were hightailing it back to the 101. Steve shared the shot with only a few people but when Surfing Magazine saw a print, they fell in love, and published it as its first pull-out centerfold. The rest, as they say, is history. The photo is a prized piece of art in many area homes and can be found all over the Internet. Despite the acclaim, like many artists, Bissell wears his fame with grace and humility. Ask him how his shot became so famous and you’re most likely to get an answer crediting other people or the subject itself – anything but himself. The local aftermath to the caper was classic Bissell. Shortly after the photo was printed, R.W. Bates (1888–1978) – a larger than life figure in his own right and the owner of the hilltop ranch – called, giving Steve a momentary shudder that trespassing charges might be in the offing. But Bates was just having fun: he wanted a copy of the photo and asked Steve up the hill for a visit, eventually loading him down with avocados and giving a tour of his spread in exchange for a print. Bates wasn’t the only one who wanted a print of the famous photo. Demand has been strong, although Bissell hasn’t always benefitted financially from his masterpiece. If you’d like a print where some of the price will get back to the artist, try greatbreaks.surfline.com/products/queen-of-the-coast.

Rincon Point is seen from the Bates

The artist

Bissell and his wife Anna arrived in Santa Barbara in 1967 from Panama (where Bissell caught the surfing bug in 1965), attracted by the surf and the Brooks Institute of Photography. Combining his surfing and photographic passions, Bissell fell in love with the place, its laidback vibe and cast of characters. Another classic Bissell story: his first wave ride at Rincon ended when nose-riding god David Nuuhiwa pulled him off his board for stealing his wave! For posterity’s sake, here are the particulars of Bissell’s iconic photograph. Date: February 1973 Camera: Nikon F 35 mm Lens: 50 mm Film: Kodachrome II Exposure Speed: 1/25th second F-stop: 8

Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athlete of the Week Asher Smith scores off a lob shot to shut out Royal 14-0.

Warriors boys water polo undefeated to start season BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

Carpinteria’s boys water polo team went into the season with high expectations, and in the first week of games, the boys have lived up to the hype, notching two wins against Royal and traditional water polo powerhouse Dos Pueblos. The Warriors are undefeated, ranked in the top five of the CIF’s division watchlist, and star sophomore Asher Smith has already received local recognition for his play in both games, named by the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table as the male Athlete of the Week. In their season opener on Aug. 24 on the road against Dos Pueblos, Smith led Carpinteria by scoring eight goals in the 12-8 victory, four of them coming in the fourth quarter alone. In the 14-0 shutout against Royal, Smith scored three more for a weeklong total of 11 goals in the pool. The trio of Warriors seniors Zach Isaac, Mateo Handall and Gavin Lohuis got the Warriors off to a quick 3-1 advantage in the Dos Pueblos game, but the Chargers came back within two before Smith slammed the door in the final period.

“The team played great team defense - contesting passes with pressure, denying entry passes and supporting junior goalie Jacob Taft with field blocks,” said coach Jon Otsuki. “Taft had a tremendous game corralling numerous blocks intended for the corners of the cage.” On Saturday, Aug. 29, Carpinteria blanked the visiting Royals from Simi Valley 14-0 in a non-league win. The team got out of the gates quickly, racing to a 7-0 lead by the end of the first quarter of play and keeping strong for a decisive 14-0 victory. “The Warriors team defense continued to suffocate the opponents’ offensive threats and as a result created numerous counterattack opportunities,” Otsuki said. In addition to Smith’s three goals, the Warriors’ Justin Main, Augie Sheaffer and Gavin Lohuis each scored two goals of their own. The boys water polo team’s next two games are at home against Santa Ynez and on the road against Malibu.

Warrior football returns to Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 3. said Carpinteria Athletic Director Pat Cooney. “Student athletes and coaches rose to the occasion and met or exceeded expectations.” Boys water polo got off to an undefeated 2-0 start, football hit the road to open its season against Morro Bay, and girls tennis and volleyball both got their first games under their belts. “The future is bright for the fall Warrior,” said Cooney. Girls volleyball was the first to break in the newly refurbished gym – and renew the “Battle for the 192” crosstown rivalry against Cate – in a 3-1 loss. After a 0-5 start to the season, the girls are looking to get back on track against Newbury Park on Thursday, Sept. 2. As part of the Carpinteria Unified School District’s Covid-19 safety plan, all players have been wearing masks when practicing or playing indoors, and all student athletes, coaches and staff will either show proof of vaccination or begin the weekly testing program, according to Cooney. Athletic Trainer Ruben Barrera will collect copies of physical vaccination cards or QR codes on Monday and Tuesday after school. Girls tennis was victorious 15-3 in their first match against St. Bonaventure, and nearly pulled off a comeback upset win, Cooney said, in a 10-8 loss to Viewpoint. The girls will revisit the Warriors’ local rivalries this week with matches at Laguna Blanca and at home against Dos Pueblos. Carpinteria football traveled the 120-mile journey to Morro Bay to start the season in their first full-contact game. The Warriors struggled to find offense and contain the Pirates, losing in a 38-0 shutout. The Warriors are eager to notch their first win and for the long-awaited return to the Friday night lights of Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium this week at 7 p.m. against St. Monica. The band, cheerleaders, churros and “world famous” CHS Boosters’ tri-tip sandwiches will be back, and Cooney is looking forward to a strong turnout from the community. Tickets are $8 general and $5 for students with ID, senior citizens, active military and military veterans. Thursday night, Rory’s Artisanal Creamery on Linden Ave. will also be donating a portion of the evening’s proceeds to the CHS Boosters. “Take advantage of the opportunity to build strength in the Warrior community,” Cooney said.

finished with a time of 50:31 in the unique event, which took place at the Historic Cabrillo Bathhouse on Santa Barbara’s East Beach. The race includes a swim in the ocean, a run and a bike race along the beachfront bike paths along Cabrillo Boulevard. Cluderay’s 50:31 finish was good enough to snag second in the 15-17 age division.

Cate School’s fall sports back for full seasons

With Cate School starting on Wednesday, Sept. 1, the Rams are looking forward to five sports worth of action, with water polo, cross country, volleyball, tennis and football. Cate’s girls cross country is returning with the entire group of core runners – now seniors – including standout Anna DiSorbo, said Athletic Director Wade Ransom. DiSorbo has received recognition since her sophomore season in 2019, when she was named Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table’s athlete of the week. Ransom said the Rams’ slate of fall sports is closer to normal, or the “new normal,” but he hopes that complications due to the latest delta variant don’t lead to more restrictions like previous seasons. Last year, Cate’s baseball team won big in their league, but opted out of the playoffs to allow students to return home for the summer. The Rams’ eight-man football season begins Friday, Sept. 3 at Grace Brethren. Cate will return to a full schedule of eight games this year, with its first home game against Orcutt on Saturday Sept. 18. Cross country’s first Tri Valley League race will be Friday, Sept 17 at Camino Real Park.
