Members sought for Harbor Seal Advisory Committee

Annually, the beach at and around the Carpinteria harbor seal rookery closes between Dec. 1 and May 31. The closure ensures that mothers and pups are not disturbed. Residents and visitors are asked to respect the closure and help protect these marine mammals. Disturbing seals is prohibited by the Federal Marine Mammal Protection Act, which can impose a fine up to $10,000 and or one year in prison. Recently the city formed an advisory committee for the purpose of better understanding of the local harbor seal population, including causes of recent trends in births and haul-out numbers, and to make recommendations to the City Council to mitigate habitat degradation and incidents of seal harassment. Community members who are interested in participating in the Harbor Seal Advisory Committee can apply by submitting an application. For more information, contact Erin Maker at erinm@

Montecito Bank & Trust has reported that total assets grew $404.53 million.

Westerlay Orchids raises more than $35k for Carpinteria schools

In a record-breaking year, orchid shop Westerlay Orchids raised $35,619.40 for the Carpinteria Education Foundation in its one-week fundraiser. “Thanks to so many, our community has raised over $35,619.40 dollars to support local students, this was well over our goal. 100% of the proceeds will be funding essential programs for Carpinteria families through the Carpinteria Education Foundation (CEF),” Toine Overgaag, founder of Westerlay Orchids, said. “I’m beyond grateful to be able to support education in any way we can.” Every year, Westerlay Orchids – located at 3504 Via Real – pledges 100% of weekly showroom sales to the Carpinteria Education Foundation during a one-week fundraiser. Last year, the shop brought in $23,819 for CEF, but this year’s record-breaking fundraiser saw more than $35,000. The money will go back to CEF, which helps to support the Carpinteria Unified School District. Westerlay is Southern California’s largest commercial orchid grower. CEF has partnered with local businesses for more than 26 years to raise money for Carpinteria and Summerland schools.

CDC endorses Pfizer vaccine for children 5–11 On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorsed the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine for children between the ages of 5–11. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had already given approval. Children could begin receiving shots as early as Wednesday; the Biden Administration has already given approval to begin shipping out the doses – which are 1/3rd the size of the adult Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine – across the country. The vaccines will be administered in smaller needles and vials. On Wednesday, Santa Barbara County confirmed that local pediatric distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine vials has already begun, with full availability anticipated next week. Dr. Rochelle Walensky, CDC director, said the approval is an “important step in our nation’s fight against the virus that causes Covid-19.” There are 28 million children in the U.S. in this age group, according to the CDC. In Santa Barbara County, there are 42,000 children in that age group. The center recommends getting children in this group vaccinated “as soon as possible.” “We know millions of parents are eager to get their children vaccinated and with this decision, we now have recommended that about 28 million children receive a COVID-19 vaccine. As a mom, I encourage parents with questions to talk to their pediatrician, school nurse or local pharmacist to learn more about the vaccine and the importance of getting their children vaccinated,” Dr. Walensky said. As of Wednesday, 60.4% of Santa Barbara County residents are now fully vaccinated, compared to 71.4% of those

eligible to be vaccinated. The county reported 415 new Covid-19 cases between Oct. 22 and Oct. 28, for 361 active cases, 44,032 total cases and 523 total deaths. During that same week, the county saw 40 hospitalizations – 14 in the ICU – and four deaths. The majority of cases were seen in the 30–49 age group, at 138 cases, followed by the 0–17 age group with 93 cases. The county continues to report higher cases of Covid-19 among the unvaccinated populations. Between the week of Oct. 15 and Oct. 21, the county reported 235 cases among the unvaccinated population, compared to 82 in the unvaccinated population. The county also reminds residents to get their flu shots, which are available throughout the county. Flu vaccines are available under most insurance plans. Per the county, symptoms of the flu can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headaches, body aches, chills, fatigue, vomiting and diarrhea. People over the age of 65, pregnant women, children under the age of five and individuals with “certain chronic medical conditions” are at a higher risk of developing complications if they catch the flu.

A yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, was found in Santa Barbara last year. The non-native insect can complete its development in the amount of water left in an upturned bottle cap.

Rain brings potential for mosquito outbreaks CVN REPORT

While the recent rains were a welcome sight in the Carpinteria area, bringing a small amount of relief to the drought, they also have the potential to bring outbreaks of nuisance mosquitoes – especially the non-native yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, which was found in Santa Barbara last year. “Mosquitoes need stagnant water for their development,” said Dr. Brian Cabrera, general manager of the Mosquito and Vector Management District of Santa Barbara County. “Female mosquitoes lay their eggs on the water. Mosquito larvae hatch out of the eggs, grow and complete their development in the water and in a few days emerge from the water as adult mosquitoes,” he explained. “Reducing mosquito problems can be pretty straightforward and the math is very simple: No stagnant water equals no mosquitoes.” To “fight the bite,” Dr. Cabrera urges residents to check inside and outside

where they live for stagnant water sources where mosquitoes can develop. It doesn’t take much for this to happen; Aedes aegypti mosquitoes can complete their development in the amount of water that fills a bottle cap. Some of the common items and locations that hold stagnant water where mosquitoes can breed include buckets, clogged gutters, neglected bird baths, rain barrels, abandoned tires, saucers under potted plants, neglected pools and even litter on the ground, such as, discarded cups and plastic wrappers. Plants, especially bromeliads or tree holes, also can hold enough water for mosquitoes to develop in. “If it can hold water, it can be a potential breeding site,” says Dr. Cabrera. A tell-tale sign of mosquito-infested water is the presence of dark, wormlike “wigglers.” These are actually the mosquito larvae which later develop into adult mosquitoes. Dumping and draining the water is enough to destroy the mosquito larvae – and this means they won’t grow up to bite you.

Talking ADUs and downtown design with a Carpinteria city planner


Rita Bright joined the city of Carpinteria last year as a principal planner in the Community Development Department. Bright, who has over 20 years’ experience as a planner for the county of Santa Barbara, was hired with awarded grant funds for a three-year term to focus on advanced planning, including addressing new codes for accessory dwelling units (ADU) and updating the downtown overlay’s design standards. Bright is also a lecturer in the Environmental Studies Program at her alma mater UCSB, where she teaches courses involving environmental planning. Topics include sea-level rise, coastal and land use policy, environmental justice and agricultural policies. With a specialization in environmental and policy analysis, Bright is well suited to help tackle some of the city’s challenging development issues through long range planning. Among the most talked about items on Bright’s desk, is how the city will incorporate the state’s new legislation on ADUs, while navigating sea level rise; respecting the character of the community; and in accordance with the Coastal Commission, given that the city is fully within California’s coastal zone. At last week’s City Council meeting, Bright gave an update on the ADU program. She discussed how current data on sea level rise shows that many properties in the beach neighborhood (Zone 1) face vulnerabilities and potential hazards related to climate change. Now, with the greenlight from city council, city staff are preparing the draft ADU ordinance that will layout a more accessible and affordable path for Carpinteria homeowners to create additional permitted housing units on their single-family properties. The draft plan, which excludes Zone 1 due to sea level rise, will then be sent to the state for review, along with special districts, the Tribal Council and the Coastal Commission. CVN interviewed Bright to learn more about the upcoming ADU ordinance, along with a forecast on what’s in the works for the downtown corridor. CVN: Tell us about accessory dwelling units – what are they and who can build one? Rita Bright: Let’s start by talking about JADUs, junior accessory dwelling units. A JADU is intended to be a smaller affordable unit. JADUs have to be part of an existing primary residence though, such as converting an attached garage. JADUs can also be designed into new construction of a residence. So, JADUs have to be attached to the main house? That’s right, and they have to be 500 sq. ft. or less. You are also allowed to add to the home 150 sq. ft. to facilitate a private entrance to the unit, as the state allows.

to send the draft ordinance to the state Housing and Community Development Department, to the water and sanitary districts, and have Tribal consultation. We also need Coastal Commission approval. This program cannot conflict with coastal resource policies. Later, when the draft ordinance is released to the public, people will be able to make comments and tell us what is helpful and what is not.

What if your garage is detached? Can you still convert it into a JADU? No, if a garage is detached than it can’t be a JADU. But a detached garage can be converted into an ADU. OK. Tell us about ADUs. ADUs are varied and can be both attached and detached dwellings. A typical ADU is up to 800 sq ft, 16 feet in height, and has 4-foot setbacks. These are the standards for a state-exempt ADU. What if someone wants to build an ADU that is bigger than 800 sq ft? Or, if they don’t have enough space to meet their zone’s building coverage or open space requirements? For bigger units which don’t meet the state’s requirements, residents can still request a permit, and the city will apply objective development standards to its review, including considerations of the Coastal Zone. The same is true for modifying the open space or building coverage requirements and other terms. Such requests would require additional review. I hear people say the city’s ADU program is confusing. Why do you think that is? I think it can be a complicated program for those who are not familiar with development permits, such as people who would like to provide a separate unit to rent or to provide for their family, but they have never applied for a permit before. To encourage such applicants, one thing that will be helpful is that we have contracted RRM Architectural Group to draft two sets of plans, one for a JADU garage conversion and one for a detached

Will there be a cap on ADUs? Not necessarily. ADUs may be limited if a public health or safety concern exists in certain areas of the city. We will be seeking input from other public service agencies in the next few weeks.

Principal planner Rita Bright joined Carpinteria’s community development staff to help align the city’s codes with the state’s new housing laws. one-bedroom unit. That will help the applicants because if they take the offthe-shelf design plan set from the city, they’ll know ahead of time that the city has committed to these designs. The city’s goal is that the plan sets will minimize process time and design costs for applicants because these plans will conform to state and local requirements “by design.” Last week at city council, we received direction to prepare a draft ordinance. The draft will exclude the beach neighborhood, Zone 1, which is most vulnerable to sea level rise. We then have

And, two, we want to enhance the ability for applicants to realize mixed-use and multi-family housing in this area.

Pilots, soarers angrily protest revised Rincon multi-use trail project ARB moves project forward to planning commission

BY EVELYN SPENCE At the Oct. 28 Architectural Review Board meeting – held in-person, with no live streaming options – community members filled a packed city hall, angrily protesting the revised Rincon multi-use trail project. After lengthy public comment and discussion, the board unanimously voted to move the project forward to the Carpinteria Planning Commission. The controversial project has been a subject of public discussion over the past several years, after first appearing on the county and city’s desk nearly a decade ago. Its 2,800 linear feet stretches across county, city and CalTrans property, at 16-feet wide – all concrete – and with protective fencing and railings. Of the proposed trail, 850 feet is under Carpinteria’s jurisdiction. The goal of the project, as expressed by city officials over the past several years, is to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety and to prevent people from crossing the railroads tracks, which is illegal. It also would offer cyclists another route down the coast, other than the shoulder of the Highway 101 freeway – which is legal, but unsafe, Matt Roberts, Parks, Recreation and Public Facilities director, said. Thursday’s presentation offered a slightly different version of what Roberts called Rincon Trail Version 1.0. The current project offers a similar alignment to its predecessor that was originally found “technically unfeasible to build”; the current design changes where and how the trail would cross the railroad. Current projections show an average of 70,000 uses of the trail a year, according to Roberts. “This has been on the city’s wishlist going back decades,” Roberts said. Thursday’s meeting largely focused on reviewing a consistent design theme, offering feedback on safety lighting and signage, and looking at colors for the bridge. But the controversy for the project lies in its plan to potentially destroy a launch site, prominently used by paragliders and hang gliders, many of whom showed up to protest the project at the Thursday meeting. Prior to public comment, Board Chair Brad Stein emphasized that ARB’s purview over the project mainly falls under the aesthetic choices; the majority of the issues public commenters have with the project, he warned, lie under the planning commission’s jurisdiction. President of the Santa Barbara Soaring Association James Zinder, a pilot, said the

Public commenter Otis Guillipse also said he is against the project because of the proposed location, offering concerns about the process of moving concrete and dirt already in place. “I really hope you don’t approve these preliminary architectural review board plans,” public commenter John Graham said. “(There are) so many variables that haven’t been presented yet.” Other commenters questioned whether the trail could be narrower, while others warned of a possible lawsuit against the city if the project moves forward. The next planning commission meeting is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 6. Its Nov. 1 meeting was cancelled.

Howard School parents show up in droves in support of proposed St. Joseph’s fence

At Thursday’s Architectural Review Board meeting, Howard School parents showed up in droves in support of a proposed fence around St. Joseph Church. The board unanimously voted for final

project approval. Board member Jason Rodriguez abstained since he was the applicant for the project on behalf of the school, where his daughter attends. The Howard School currently operates out of the church under a temporary use permit, set to expire on June 30, 2022. The fence will remain in place, according to Rodriguez, who confirmed that the church would like to keep the fence in place regardless of whether or not the school remains on its grounds. The church puts up temporary fencing every year for the annual St. Joseph carnival. The new 6-foot-tall fence would stretch across 1,000 linear feet, according to Rodriguez. The fence will have four new vehicle access gates and two ADA-accessible pedestrian gates. Along Linden Avenue, a Kent-style, wrought iron fence would be installed; chain link fencing would run along the rear of the property. “I think a fence will help connect all those different areas together,” Rodriguez said. “This type of fence highlights a variety of accents (...) with subtle masonry work that goes well.” The board discussed landscaping changes, issues with child privacy and the height and sturdiness of the fence. Board member Richard Johnson said

that while he loves the landscaping, he suggests adding landscaping on the north-end of the site, and that the fence itself would need to be sturdy. Chair Brad Stein agreed on making sure the fence was strong enough and recommended that Rodriguez “talk to your fence guy about reinforcing” the fence. Rodriguez pointed out that while he is aware of the board’s negative opinion of 6-foot-fences, he looked at childcare assessment standards and security, and spoke to several local officials on the matter. This included Sheriff’s Deputy James Carovano and CUSD Superintendent Diana Rigby. Rodriguez provided comments from letter writers. Carovano wrote that in his “professional experience, a 6-foot-fence is appropriate.” Rigby wrote that she “totally supports” the fence, which she believes would “help to protect children enrolled in Howard School.” She confirmed that all CUSD public school fences are at a minimum of six feet. Prior to opening public comment, Stein simply asked the crowd who was in favor of the fence; all of the 30 plus parents in attendance raised their hands in favor. The board then voted to unanimously approve the project.

School board says no to CHS statue redesign Controversial Warrior Head statue will remain

BY EVELYN SPENCE Despite its controversial past, the Warrior Head statue at Carpinteria High School will not be redesigned, following a meeting last week by the Carpinteria Unified School District board of trustees. In a 0-5 vote, the board unanimously rejected a motion to redesign the Warrior Head statue at Carpinteria High School. The item on the agenda asked the board to consider hiring Kruger Bensen Ziemer Architects to redesign a new CHS campus sign. The sign has faced criticism in the past over its current design, which was donated to the district by the CHS class of 1970. “The 50-year-old Warrior Head is in deteriorating condition, and we believe that new school signage needs to be addressed. We are aware of the controversary associated with removing the Warrior Head,” Superintendent Diana Rigby said. Board member Andy Sheaffer said his biggest problem was the cost of the redesign, at $28,000. Board member Jayme Bray added she would rather spend the money on restoring the Warrior Head statue, rather than redesigning the symbol. “I’m not trying to be disrespectful to the people who are offended by (the symbol), but we went through this back in 2010, or 2009 (…) and I really don’t think it’s appropriate to go through that again, and especially to spend this amount of money,” Sheaffer said. Local artist John Wullbrandt, through a letter submitted to the board, asked that the board delay the vote until Wullbrandt can finalize plans for his own gift to the school: a Warrior sculpture, which is not mentioned in Tuesday’s proposal. “I personally believe that any money that you might spend on a new sign should instead be spent on educating the students on the history of first nation imagery. Would you please allow volunteers to give the Warrior Head a fresh coat of paint, do a little patching?” he said. Tom Reimers, president of the CHS ’70, called the Warrior Head statue “the heart and soul of the project” when it was put up in 1970. “Any change or modification to this CHS icon must address the future of the Warrior Head out of respect for the history of Carpinteria,” he wrote. Public commenter John Sanchez also asked that the statue remain in place. “That warrior spirit never dies is something of the heart, and there’s a lot of heart that went into all of the art and things that have been put there at the school,” Sanchez said. “I hope, and I pray, that they do not

remove that Indian head. Back in 2013, they were trying to get rid of the mascots,” Sanchez said. “We have some good people to go ahead and make it anew (…) We hope that you will not remove it.”

Board questions decrease in property tax projections

CUSD Assistant Superintendent Maureen Fitzgerald presented an update on the district’s property tax projections, noting that the updated numbers cause a $137,555 loss of revenue. But when Fitzgerald said she reached out to the county to question the decrease from the projections, the county told her the district doesn’t “get our actual (number of) property taxes.” Fitzgerald said that the district gets “what the county decides to send back to us.” “I’m like, (hasn’t) this been the most epic real estate year? Like, where’s the money?” she said. “In my gut, I think (the county is) underestimating,” Fitzgerald later added. Sheaffer questioned how the process works, and why the district is receiving less than previously projected numbers. “Carpinteria has a higher escalation of property values than most of the rest of the county, and the county is telling us that our property tax revenue projections are lower than what we all reasonably think they are?” he questioned. “And they get to keep the underestimated value?” “The answer I got (from the county) was, ‘Well, you’re getting more than anyone else,’” Fitzgerald said. In response to further board questions about how the property tax distribution money works, Fitzgerald said “I have been fighting this question since I came into the district (...) No one answers any questions.” Sheaffer asked if there was a way to appeal the budget; Fitzgerald said no. Other board members expressed concern about the budget and the process by which the property taxes are distributed. “As a Carpinteria resident and a property taxpayer, I assume my property taxes go to my school district. I think it’s important that the residents, that the people that pay taxes in the district zone, know that. And I don’t think they do,” Board member Jaime Diamond said. “I think people would be pretty upset if they found out that it’s actually just going into a big pot, getting shaken up, and ‘Here you go, be grateful for this.’” Superintendent Rigby asked if it would be possible for a county representative to come and speak to the board about how the process works. The board agreed with


CHS’ Warrior Head sign has faced criticism in the past. The sign was donated to the district by the CHS class of 1970. Rigby, and Fitzgerald said she would reach out. Fitzgerald added, as she was going over the rest of the budget, that “hopefully” it would change as she receives more information.

CUSD sees decrease in enrollment history across past decade; slight increase in 2021

Superintendent Rigby presented a decade’s worth of enrollment numbers at last Tuesday’s school board meeting, showing a decrease in the number of students overall, districtwide, since 2012. Districtwide, CUSD reported 2,248 students in 2012 compared to 2088 in 2012. At Aliso, the school reported 443 students in 2021 compared to 347 in 2021; at Canalino, 496 in 2012 compared to 506 in 2021; at Carpinteria Family School, 75 in 2012 compared to 70 in 2021; at Summerland, 69 in 2012 compared to 49 in 2021; at Carpinteria Middle School, 489 in 2012 compared to 438 in 2021; and at Carpinteria High School, 676 in 2012 compared to 678 in 2021. However, despite the dip in the last decade, Rigby said the district is seeing an improvement in enrollment “for the first time in a few years,” between 2020 and 2021 numbers. “We went from 2074 (in 2020) to 2088 (in 2021),” Rigby said.


The board approved several assignments, five resignations and one retirement. Elodia Landeros and Natalia Chavez were assigned as instructional assistants at Aliso; Katie Caceres as an instructional assistant at CMS; Celeste Elliot as a library and media technological secondary at CHS; and Justin Hardeman and Edward Garcia as groundskeepers. Travis Revicki resigned as a school nurse; Stephanie Segura as an instructional assistant; Veronica Wilcox as an instructional assistant at Canalino; Monica Robarge as a teacher for special education at Canalino; and Theodore Fleet as a bus driver. Reid Barnes will also retire as a grounds supervisor, effective February 2022.

Closed session

In a closed session, the board unanimously voted to dismiss employee #1200 from district employment. They also unanimously voted, in student case #1718006, that the student’s expulsion records be expunged.

“I encourage my fellow Carpinterians to speak with one another about Lot 3 and about how to make this city even better in the future – thoughtfully, respectfully, patiently.”

––Zachary King

Cynthia Nielsen Hadidian 9/24/1956 – 10/23/2021

Cynthia “Cindy” Nielsen Hadidian passed away on Oct. 23, 2021, surrounded by her husband and children. Cindy was born Sept. 24, 1956, in Johnson City, New York, to Lawrence and Joan Nielsen, where she grew up the oldest of four children. Cindy graduated from Abington High School in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania in 1974. In June of 1978, Cindy married John Hadidian in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. John and Cindy moved to Santa Barbara, where John attended Westmont College. After his graduation they eventually settled in Carpinteria, where they lived and raised three children before moving to Summerland in 2017. She was a mother and grandmother through and through, and her fierce love and devotion for her family was evident to all. Her love for John was steady and deep for 43 years. The last two years, as they walked through the cancer journey together, brought their love for each other deeper still. Cindy loved her work as a preschool teacher. For 35 years she served the families and children at All Saints-by-the-Sea Parish School, where she worked up until the week before her passing. The enjoyment of her work with 4-year-old children was matched by the enjoyment of the relationships she had with her colleagues. Since 1979, Cindy and her husband John also were active members of the Santa Barbara Community Church. They were involved in small groups and surrounded by longtime friends. Cindy was slight in stature and great of heart. The combination of her faith, grit and optimism was a strength that others relied upon. She will be sorely missed by the many people whose lives she touched. Cindy is survived by her husband John, children Graham Hadidian and his wife Rachel, Brittany Deckard and her husband Matt, Rachel Hadidian, grandchildren Grey Hadidian, Charlie Deckard and Mavis Deckard, as well as her brothers Jeffrey Nielsen and Steve Nielsen, and sister Ruth Lipshires. An outdoor memorial service will be held on Friday, Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. at Santa Barbara Community Church, located at 1002 Cieneguitas Road. A reception will follow at 3 p.m.

Phyllis Gates Fenger 7/11/1922 – 9/23/2021

Phyllis Gates Fenger of Carpinteria, California, died peacefully at home among family and friends on Sept. 23, 2021 at age 99. Born July 11, 1922 in Denver, Colorado to Nelle and Herman Gates, Phyllis became a person of many talents and interests. After earning her BA in French, with minors in Spanish and Education from University of Colorado, in 1942, she taught school, raised a family, became a librarian, read and traveled extensively and worked as a travel agent. She studied Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Italian and Greek and took up sailing, tennis, golf, folk and Scottish country dancing. Phyllis volunteered at Cottage Hospital, Main and Aliso school libraries, and Carpinteria Friends of the Library bookstore. She served as an election poll worker during many elections and believed voting to be a privilege and duty. She studied and worked as a docent at the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park and the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History. Phyllis wrote 100-plus memoir-style stories, and at age 94 authored a book based on her cousin’s diary about her experience as a WWI nurse in France. “American Red Cross Nurse: Beulah Feely 1917–1918” was accepted into the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri. Witty and generous in conversation, Phyllis collected people from next door and around the world who became lifelong friends, all of whom knew it was highly unlikely they’d ever beat her at Scrabble. She was also a devoted dog lover and raised 10 four-legged family members in her lifetime. Phyllis was preceded in death by several dear, close contemporaries, and her beloved grandparents, parents, brother Phil and son Mike. She is survived by her daughter Ellen, of Santa Barbara, and many cherished and devoted friends and family members. A special thank you to Carmen for her abiding love and care. Funeral services will be held on Nov. 20 at 11 a.m. at All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, 83 Eucalyptus Lane, Santa Barbara. Masks required; the family prefers all attendees be vaccinated for Covid-19. Please enjoy wearing brighter colors, as Phyllis never wore black or somber clothing.

Save the Harbor Seal Rookery

I’m hoping that the new Harbor Seal Committee will be able to negotiate with the new owners or buy the Harbor Seal Rookery in Carpinteria. This Harbor Seal Rookery has been here for over 100 years. There are only three Harbor Seal rookeries left on the West Coast. Let’s protect nature and keep this valuable Harbor Seal rookery in Carpinteria.

Save Parking Lot 3

The petition to save our downtown and beach parking lot, known as Lot 3, now has enough signatures. It proposes putting the issue to a public vote: whether to change the zoning of Lot 3, so it remains an open, non-commercial public space, or to keep the current zoning and allow a project like the proposed Surfliner Inn, thereby effectively removing the space forever from public use. I believe this is an issue about which reasonable people can disagree. However, since this is publicly owned land, I also believe that an informed public campaign and vote is in the best interest of everyone. I had to speak to a lot more than 50 people to get 50 signatures. I learned that many people you see on the streets of Carpinteria live outside the city limits, commute to work here, are tourists, are too busy, do not engage in politics, want to do their own research or are in favor of the hotel project and against a public vote. My experience is of course anecdotal, but speaking to people, including many who will not be able to vote, convinced me that a public vote is truly necessary and that a large number of locals, regular out-of-town guests and coworkers believe the removal of Lot 3 will not improve, but instead worsen the overall quality of life in this city. I know that politics in our country and even in our lovely city can be nasty. But having hundreds of

conversations about this has been – for me – an inspiring experience and a lesson in community solidarity. I encourage my fellow Carpinterians to speak with one another about Lot 3 and about how to make this city even better in the future – thoughtfully, respectfully, patiently. We have some great people here.

Individual choice

Like Jim Dragna wrote in his letter to the editor (Vol. 28. No. 6), I believe that the decision about whether to get Covid-19 vaccines and a booster should be left up to each individual, not the government. I personally received the shots, and I think seniors and those with health issues should do so also. People who have had Covid-19 should not be forced to get the “jab.” However, I question giving vaccines to kids between the ages of 5 and 11. Recently, the White House revealed a plan to quickly vaccinate children between the ages of 5 and 11. An FDA advisory panel authorized an emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccine for young children. And Governor Newsom jumped on board. Are we acting too fast with young children, and is it safe to give the shots to them? Unlike adults, they have their whole lives ahead of them, and we do not know what effects these shots have long term. The FDA committee said, “long term safety of Covid-19 vaccine in participants 5-12 years of age will be studied in five post-authorization safety studies, including a five year follow-up study to evaluate long term sequelae of post-vaccination myocarditis/pericarditis.” In other words: approve the drug, make it mandatory for small children, and then we will tell you if is safe in the future. Parents and grandparents, we must act responsibly where are children’s health is concerned. Get informed.

Water District adopts 2020 water management and continency plans Carpinteria hit its target goals for gallons of water used per-capita-per day

BY EVELYN SPENCE The Carpinteria Valley Water District has adopted its 2020 urban water management plan and an updated water shortage contingency plan, after offering a draft plan on Oct. 13. The district’s Oct. 27 meeting focused on both the urban water management plan, known as UWMP, and the water shortage contingency plan (WSCP). While the two are separate, they were presented together for the purpose of Wednesday’s hearing, according to Sally Johnson, CEQA deputy/analyst from Woodward & Curran, an engineering, science and operations company. Johnson presented both plans at Wednesday’s presentation.

Urban water management plan

The urban water management plan must be completed every five years, per Johnson’s presentation, and focuses on future water reliability. It is also a key requirement for the city to receive state funding. The water shortage contingency plan, in turn, identifies what can cause water shortages, and outlines what to do if a shortage happens or will happen. This year, Johnson said the plan contains an annual assessment of reliability. “It has a process in there for how to evaluate how well your water shortage contingency plan is meeting your needs and whether you want to make any revisions,” Johnson said. The 2015 urban water management plan looked at population and demand analysis, supply source description, water quality concerns and other items; the 2020 plan focused on climate change analysis, a five consecutive dry-year water reliability assessment and drought and seismic risk assessments, among other aspects. Johnson explained that Carpinteria hit its target goals for gallons of water used per-capita-per-day, at 112 gallons per-capita-per-day. “(The Water Conservation Act of 2009) was overall looking for a 20% reduction in water use by 2020,” Johnson said. “I wanted to congratulate you on achieving that. That allows you to maintain eligibility for state funding.” “Overall, you’ve got some pretty low water use, so congrats on being efficient.” Johnson added that Carpinteria has an anticipated population growth of 2,800 over the next 25 years, for 18,876 by 2045. She noted that these projections are conservative. She also presented water demand projections between 2005 and 2045, showing an increase over the next 25 years, between agricultural, commercial, single-family residential, industrial, multi-family residential and instructional/governmental. The majority of the water demands come from agricultural use, followed by single-family residential. “We increase the ag demands about

The water shortage contingency plan accounts for several types of shortages.

The water demand projections between 2005 and 2045 show an increase over the next 25 years. 3% every five years, to reflect some of the recent patterns we’ve been seeing in ag use based on changes to our crop types,” she said. “But overall, our water use is expected to remain within our per-capita water use target (…) which is great news.” She noted that the supply projections for 2025 cover average, single-dry and multiple dry years. In an average year, the majority of the city’s supply would come from the Cachuma project, seconded by the Carpinteria groundwater basin; however, if the city faces a series of multiple dry years, the majority of water would slowly come from the Carpinteria Groundwater basin and other supplemental water sources. “What we’re expecting for the multiple dry years is that we’ll see an increase in demand (…) in the first two years,

following by a decrease in demand as people start conserving water in times of drought,” she said. “We’re projecting that your supplies would increase to meet that demand.”

Water shortage contingency plan

The water shortage contingency plan accounts for several types of shortages. At a less than 10% water shortage, or stage 1, the goal is a voluntary 10% customer reduction. Stage 1 allows for limiting landscape irrigation, restricting water use for decoration features and prohibiting water use for washing vehicles and hard surfaces. But beyond stage 1, all water rationing in programs become mandatory. At stage 2, with a 10% to 20% shortage condition, the goal is a 20% customer reduction in water use. Stage 2 would: limit landscape irrigation to three days a week; forbid the irrigation of turf or landscapes during, and 24 hours following, a measurable rainfall; install water use efficiency devices for residential, commercial, industrial and institutional (CII); restrict water use in decorative features; repair leaks and malfunctions within 72 hours of notification; prohibit water use for washing vehicles and hard surfaces; and limit water use for recreational purposes. At stage 3, with a 20% to 30% shortage, the goal is a 30% customer reduction in water use. Stage 3 would: limit landscape

irrigation to two days a week; prohibit irrigation of turf or landscapes during and 48 hours following a measurable rainfall; implement water use efficiency devices for residential and CII; restrict water use for decorative features; repair leaks and malfunctions within 72 hours of notification; and prohibit water use for washing vehicles and hard surfaces. At stage 4, with a 30% to 40% shortage, the goal is 40% customer reduction in water usage. Stage 4 would prohibit all landscape irrigation to one day per week; forbid irrigation of turf or landscapes during, and 48 hours following, a measurable rainfall; prohibit watering of turf; implement water use efficiency devices for residential and CII; restrict water use for decorative features and recreational purposes; repair leaks and malfunctions within 48 hours of notification; prohibit water use for washing vehicles and hard surfaces; and consider a moratorium on new meters. At stage 5, with a 40% to 50% water shortage, the goal is 50% customer reduction in water usage. Stage 5 offers the same limits as stage 4. And finally, at stage 6, with a more than 50% water shortage, the goal is a 50%+ customer reduction in water usage. Stage 6 would offer all the same limits as stage 4 and 5, with the addition of a water budget. “We get more stringent as we go up the levels,” Johnson said. The previous version of the water shortage plan had three stages, according to Johnson.

Children at Lou Grant Parent-Child Workshop are making art for the school’s annual auction, this year to be held online.

Lou Grant holds annual auction online this year

This fall, Lou Grant Parent-Child Workshop reopened for on-campus learning after a year closed due to the pandemic. Families have been delighted with “both parents and children loving being back at school and learning every day together through play,” said parent Coleen Armstrong-Yamamura. Each year, Lou Grant looks to the community to help fund and support the school’s mission. But this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the auction will be held online. “We are having our first, and hopefully last, virtual auction this year,” Armstrong-Yamamura said. “We are calling it a ‘digital’ auction as here at Lou Grant, our little ones use their digits to explore, make art, build and learn.” The auction will be live online from Nov. 7 through Nov. 14, just in time for

holiday shopping. One benefit of the fundraiser being online, Armstrong-Yamamura noted, is that the auction has the potential to have national and international reach, as Lou Grant families – both current and alumni – share the link with their family and friends around the world. Supporters will find a wide array of goods that have been donated by community members and businesses, such as Patagonia gear, electric bikes, work from local artists/makers and vacation home stays. Additionally, the kids at Lou Grant have been busy making unique craft items with the school’s signature artistic flare to sell at the auction. Visit the auction and learn more at

reading intervention to 23 students in first through third grade, for five days a week, in 20-minute sessions. Acuna uses the SIPPS reading program with her students, which is an explicit, systematic intervention program that includes phonemic awareness, phonics, blending and comprehension. Lisa Nakasone works on a 50% contract and provides two times a week intervention with 25 students in the dual language immersion program. Nakasone utilizes the Read Naturally program in Spanish to instruct in fluency and comprehension. Both teachers have a shared document with other teachers and the student study team, to analyze the students’ weekly data collection and their progress. Daily reading intervention is part of the instructional support services offered at Aliso and Summerland Elementary School. Children in grades 1st through 3rd were assessed and placed within different levels of the SIPPS program. Children in 1st grade receive five days of reading intervention 30 minutes a day, and 2nd and 3rd grade students receive 30 minutes a day, four times a week. Our credentialed Reading Intervention teacher, Ms. Valerie Ropelato, uses SIPPS, a research-based foundational skills program proven to help both new and struggling readers, including English Language learners and students with dyslexia. Children receive instruction that is systematic in phonological awareness, phonics, and sight words. Currently, our reading intervention program is providing services to 31 children. Each of the children are being monitored continuously, and enter and exit their small groups based on assessment results.

to “create a change in practice or an operational procedure within an organization or community.” The organization has $105,000 in express grants available for short-term funding – limited to $10,000 per project – and $45,000 for capacity building grants, for up to $15,000 a grant. “Systems often are the holders of inequities,” Wendy Sims-Moten, executive director of First 5 Santa Barbara County, said in a press release. “We must do more than close gaps and point to disparities. We must look critically at all facets of our organizations as we strive in all of our work to achieve social and race equity, a state in which all children have the same opportunity to reach the potential we know they have.” To apply, visit First5sbc.

YouthWell to host free wellness workshop

YouthWell, a nonprofit organization from Santa Barbara County that works to improve youth mental health and wellness, is hosting a free virtual wellness workshop on body positive imagery on Nov. 14. The workshop, geared toward students between the ages of 10 and 25 – as well as parents and teachers – will tackle body neutrality and body acceptance, focusing on transforming self-image and improving self-esteem. It will take place between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. It will be led by speaker and blogger Jenny Schatzle; local leader Jordan Killebrew and Caroline Anderson, college student, will also share their own experiences with overcoming eating disorders. Dietician and nutritionist Heather Lengyel will share warning signs of eating disorders and how to support those with eating disorders. “My biggest challenge was believing in who I was, my worth and my talent. And what I found out very quickly was that my greatest talent is being authentically me! We all have a superpower, and that power is being exactly who we are,” Schatzle said in a press release. Register at Spanish interpretation is available. YouthWell hosts wellness workshops once a month.

2021–2022 Budget

The district received the Santa Barbara County 2021-22 Property Tax projections, which are less than projected by $137,555. While we have not yet received the J29 Tax Report from SBCEO, it is unlikely to change. Upon inquiry with Santa Barbara County, property tax projections are based on CPI (California Price Index) and other factors, rather than actual assessed taxes in our district area.

Measure U Update

The CHS administration building cement footings and foundation pour concluded Friday, Oct. 8. Framing started last week, and the project is progressing on time. Gerardo Cornejo and the Measure U team will finalize the interior colors and finishes this week. Summerland school demolition began the week of Oct. 4 and moved rapidly, demolishing the campus. Diana Rigby is the current superintendent of Carpinteria Unified School District. She is focused on improving teaching and learning for all CUSD students and welcomes parent and community input and feedback.

Local housing or vacation rentals?

THE LAY OF THE LAND MIKE WONDOLOWSKI Your family members’ schedules finally all line up, and you can plan a weeklong vacation together. You are hoping to find a place where you can all be together – not in separate hotel rooms that will probably end up on different floors. So, you start searching on a website like Airbnb or VRBO, where you hope to find a condo or house that will fit your entire family for the week. This method of finding a short-term rental (STR) has only been common for about a decade. Such non-hotel vacation rentals have been available since the 1950s (mostly through newspaper advertisements), but they really took off with the growth of online reservation platforms. An STR allocates a house or condo for vacation renters who stay less than 30 days, often for a week or just a weekend. This removes a housing unit from the local housing stock available to people who work and want to live in the local area, not just visit on vacation. The simplicity of using the new online services inspired more property owners to try out their entrepreneurial skills, especially in vacation destinations like Carpinteria. Some occasionally rented out a spare room, while others rented

out their entire house while they were traveling. Some ended up jumping in with both feet and buying one or more condos or houses and setting them up as full-time STRs. This part of the new “sharing economy” has provided business opportunities for some property owners as well as reservation services (including Airbnb and VRBO), property management companies, cleaning services and other support businesses. But it has also introduced wide-ranging impacts to neighborhoods and entire communities. Complaints about STRs are common from nearby neighbors concerning noise, parking, trash, crime, and neighborhood peace. Unfortunately, some short-term renters have, well, short-timer’s attitude: “I’ll be gone in a couple days, so I don’t care what the neighbors think.” But even more far-reaching are the less obvious impacts to the entire community. When a housing unit is converted to a short-term rental for visitors, it is lost as a residence for people who want to live in the community and would either rent or buy that unit. Each STR unit, therefore, reduces the available housing supply, mostly the smallest units that would have the most affordable long-term rental rates. But it gets even worse. Even as the supply of available housing decreases, the same number of people still want to live here, so some are left unable to find a place to live. Meanwhile, investors who want to create new STRs add to the number of people looking for properties. The result of decreasing supply and increasing demand is that prices are bid up. People find themselves hardly able to find someplace available to rent or buy, and if they do, they find surprisingly

“In this column over the past couple months, I have started to explore the concern ‘My kids won’t be able to afford to live here.’ The part STRs play in this larger story is basic supplyand-demand: reduction in available housing means higher prices.” high prices. To address these neighborhood and community negative impacts, the city of Carpinteria in 2017 instituted regulation on STRs, including limits on the number of units allowable in different neighborhoods. Now, the city is looking at possible regulation updates based on learnings over the past few years. A remarkable piece of data from the Staff Report on this issue for the Sept. 13, 2021 City Council meeting is that 78% of Carpinteria STR owners do not live in Santa Barbara County, with many from out-of-state. That means that over three-quarters of Carpinteria STRs reduce local housing stock by allowing out-ofcounty owners to rent our local property to out-of-town tourists! In this column over the past couple months, I have started to explore the concern “My kids won’t be able to afford to live here.” The part STRs play in this larger story is basic supply-and-demand: reduction in available housing means higher prices. In the next month or so, the Carpinteria City Council will continue its dis-

cussion of possible changes to the city’s regulations on STRs. It will be up to City Council to weigh the interests of people who want to use Carpinteria housing as a business investment against the impacts to neighborhoods and the importance for this community to have a range of housing opportunities at the most affordable prices possible. Public input will be important. If you think affordability and availability of local housing is important, will you make your voice heard?

Southbound on-ramp at Wallace Avenue re-opened

After nearly three months of closure, the southbound on-ramp at Wallace Avenue in Summerland is now re-opened with a newly improved ramp. The on- and off-ramps at Santa Monica Road are also scheduled to reopen later this month, on Nov. 22; drivers can use the ramps at South Padaro Lane and Santa Claus Lane as detours. The onramp at Sheffield Drive will reopen in 2023, and the off-ramp will reopen at the end of 2021. Construction continues along the Summerland, Padaro and Carpinteria segments on the Highway 101, with several lane and road closures. On the northbound Hwy 101, one lane between Bailard Avenue and North Padaro Lane will be closed on Sunday nights between 9 p.m. and. 7 a.m., and on Monday through Thursday nights between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. On the southbound side, one lane between North Padaro Lane and Santa Claus Lane will be closed on Sunday nights between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., and on Monday through Thursday nights between 8 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Summerland segment

At the Sheffield Drive interchange, construction crews are focusing on side supports for the new bridge. Crews are also keeping the trees in place. “The Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara project has employed measures to balance effective freeway construction with environmental protections specifically related to cormorants, a protected bird species,” a press release from the project read. At Greenwell creek, crews are also installing new landscaping and irrigation for the tree habits.

Padaro segment

At the Arroyo Parida and Toro Creek bridges, construction crews are working on the bridge spans, and at the Santa Claus Lane and South Padaro Lane interchange, construction crews are working on the side supports and foundation footings. The concrete mix station is still located near the southbound Hwy 101 off-ramp at North Padaro Lane, ahead of the northbound lane paving set to be done in Carpinteria. “Please expect noise as trucks enter and exit the site and materials are de-

Carpinteria segment

At the Santa Monica and Via Real intersection, utility crews continue to relocate overhead utilities, pour concrete and install drainage improvements for the new on- and off-ramps. Intersection improvements will enhance crosswalks, add bike lanes and add traffic signals; construction workers will remain in the area, directing traffic, between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., between mid-September and November. Near Franciscan Court and north of Cravens Lane, between Franklin Creek and Santa Ynez Avenue, between Santa Ynez Avenue and Santa Monica Creek, and north of Santa Monica creek, crews are installing rebar, placing concrete blocks and creating wall foots. Near the San Roque mobile home parks, construction crews continue to focus on new drainage improvements.

Construction crews are tackling the creek channel walls, sound walls and safety barriers at the Santa Monica Creek and Franklin bridges.

County releases 4,000 lbs of rainbow trout in Cachuma Lake

Cachuma Lake just welcomed the first of four scheduled Rainbow Trout releases – of about 4,000 pounds each – with fish ranging in size from half-pound “catchables” to eight-pound trophies. The fish come from Mt. Lassen Trout Farms in Paynes Creek, and an additional three trout releases are slated for December, January and April. Trout fishing conditions are ideal due to cooler fall air and water temperatures. During the fall, warm surface water begins to cool and becomes denser, causing it to sink. Dense water moving down forces water from the bottom, called hypolimnion, to rise. This temperature-driven process known as “lake turnover” allows aquatic life to inhabit the entirety of the lake as oxygen becomes more available. Rainbow trout are cold water fish. During the late fall and winter they move from deep water to the shallows, actively feeding in temperatures between 340F and 670F. The current surface temperature is just above 630F. This is a prime time of year to see bald eagles and osprey migrating through the area. Everything an angler needs is available for rent or purchase at the Cachuma Lake Marina and Boat Rentals, which offers pontoons, outboards and kayak rentals, as well as one-day and annual fishing licenses. Fishing from shore in the recreation area or from a boat is allowed year-round with a valid fishing license. Visitors are advised to check recreation area hours, and road and weather conditions in advance. For up-to-date fishing tips and summaries, visit the Cachuma Lake Weekly Fishing Report. For more information, contact the marina at (805) 688-4040. For those who plan to bring their own boating vessels, note that due to the 30-day Quagga restrictions at the lake, boats must be inspected and tagged by Cachuma Lake staff at least 30 days prior to your visit.

As cooler fall temperatures spawn ideal conditions for fishing, Santa Barbara County begins its replenishment of rainbow trout in Cachuma Lake.

Rachel Kenney and her handmade jewelry will be among the many offerings at the Santa Barbara Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival “Holiday Pop-Up” in Carpinteria on Nov. 20.

Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival to hold holiday pop-up in Carpinteria

Handcrafted ocean-inspired arts will be in abundance at the Santa Barbara Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival holiday pop-up on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Carpinteria Arts Center. The pop-up festival will showcase 20 talented vendors, offering holiday gift opportunities in an open-air market setting featuring best-in-class treasures, crafts and jewelry inspired by the sea. Festival organizers are thrilled that this year’s pop-up will move this year’s edition back to the festival’s origins in Carpinteria. “The Carpinteria Arts Center has a beautiful courtyard a few short blocks from the World’s Safest Beach in Carpinteria, a perfect setting to exhibit ocean arts,” said Louise Sciutto, festival board president. “We think the pop-up will allow us to be hyper-focused on the artists and art that inspired us to launch this festival here in the first place.” Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Santa Barbara Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival took place at Earl Warren Showgrounds each fall and included arts, education and vendors in an expanded multi-day setting. Followers of the festival will find the signature arts, jewelry and remarkable found objects that have become synonymous with the festival at this year’s holiday pop-up. There will also be live music and holiday spirit. “Like so many events, our festival was put on hold indefinitely due to the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Karen Clark, festival artistic director. “For this pop-up, we chose an intimate setting where we could create a safe outdoor experience for in-person holiday shopping and merriment. We are all so excited to get back to safely celebrating our artists and their unique wares.”

SB Botanic Garden calls for playhouse designs

As of Tuesday, applications are open for the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s 2022 Backcountry Casitas program, asking locals to help design – and build – new nature playhouses. The garden calls all artists, hobbyists, students and contractors to submit designs for the playhouses; three designs will ultimately be selected for a June 2022 opening, and those whose builds are chosen will receive a $5,000 stipend to build the structures. The The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is looking program first launched in for new designs for its 2022 Backcountry 2019, featuring six designs; Casitas program. each exhibit, often interactive, aims to help garden attendees become immersed in nature. “We’re thrilled to be bringing our Casitas program back with the public opening of this new garden space in June 2022,” Joe Rothleutner, director of horticulture and facilities, said. “This is such a fun and creative way to promote local talent while adding a new immersive dimension to The Garden. I’m looking forward to working with all our new partners and inviting families to connect with nature and native plants through this experience.” All designs should be geared toward ages five to 13 and should be built with natural materials. The designs will be judged by several criteria, including creative use of materials, family engagement, creativity and more. Designs are due by Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. An informational Zoom meeting will be held on Nov. 16 at 4 p.m. Contact to RSVP.

Day of the Dead brings lively celebration PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

Carpinteria Cemetery came alive on Sunday with a vibrant Día de los Muertos celebration put on by Artesania para la Familia. Performers included mariachis, folkloric dancers and chinelos – all decked out in colorful traditional garb and costumes. The parade of performers moved among altars – created by local families and organizations to honor their dead – as it made its way to the main stage. The celebration, the 10th of its kind in Carpinteria, was organized by Artesania para la Familia in collaboration with the Carpinteria Cemetery and sponsored by La Centra Sumerlin and Ann Jackson Family foundations. The altar winner were Reynaldo’s Bakery and Montecito Bank & Trust.

The lonely bluebird


IN THE NATUREHOOD NANCY BARON The bluebird and his mate swooped onto the perch and surveyed our property. My husband Ken and I held our breath. We had mounted two blue-bird boxes on the edge of the avocado orchard near our little pond and facing an open area. Western Bluebirds have lost most of the tree cavities they need for nests due to declining numbers of standing dead trees and increasing numbers of aggressive European Starling. Birds like Starlings and English House Sparrows have taken over most natural tree cavities. As a result, Western Bluebirds numbers are limited by their ability to find nesting sites and their numbers have declined in California. In nature, these small thrushes are typically found in places with woodpeckers that excavate extra cavities in trees. But bluebirds are known to readily accept wooden nest boxes with just the right size openings. If they like the box and the habitat, and they think it can support a family, they will stay. For several weeks the bluebird and his mate explored every nook and cranny and considered their real estate options. Water: good for bugs. Fruit trees: good for bugs. Open meadow with flowers: good for bugs. Neighbors’ horses: good for bugs. First, the female perched on the bird box with a slightly enlarged entrance that had been excavated by a woodpecker to be larger than necessary. Then she switched to the second bird box which had more going for it. A metal support rather than wood would prevent squirrels or other unwanted visitors from scampering up to stick their heads in the entrance – and a perfectly sized 1 and 9/16” entrance for bluebirds – too small for starlings, crows, jays or squirrels to squeeze into. Bird nesting and reproduction goes

pretty fast, at least compared to us. This pair showed up on March 8 this year. At first, they spent a lot of time hanging out together on our homemade perch by the pond and swooping to the ground to scoop up bugs. Bluebirds are ground feeders. They can spot caterpillars and insects in tall grass at a remarkable distance of over 50 yards. By mid-April the pair were flying back and forth between their two nest box options. By April 20 their decision was made. The female started building, which she does on her own, carrying grasses into the box. We were as excited as expectant parents. We knew the female incubates alone, although once the eggs hatch, both parents feed the young. Things quieted down as the female started incubating in the box. By mid-May I began to wonder why I wasn’t seeing both parents bringing food to the box. Shouldn’t they be feeding the chicks by now? Then I noticed the male was on the perch a lot – alone. After more than a week with no sign of the female, I finally peeked into the nest box. Inside was a perfect cup-shaped nest, woven with grasses, horse-hair and feathers. Five exquisite blue eggs nestled inside, but no sign of the female. I was heartsick. What had happened? Perhaps a neighborhood cat had nabbed her. Bluebirds feed by catching insects on the ground and can be easy prey for cats. Or maybe a Cooper’s Hawk ambushed her in an inattentive moment. Or perhaps she was struck by a passing car. I searched for a pile of feathers or other evidence, but found none. The male was searching too. He flew around and kept and sitting on the perch looking and waiting. After about a week of searching, the male disappeared. On June 1, I cleaned out the nest hoping male might find another female and try again. But the happy activity was gone. Then, this fall, the male bluebird returned. On Sept. 8 he showed up alone for his evening splash in the birdbath. Now I see him almost every day. He perches, his bright eyes peering intently for food – and I imagine, for his lost mate. I recently saw him nab a big bug and fly back to the perch, bashing it on the perch to subdue it before swallowing. A good omen. At this time of year, bluebirds typically get together in groups to communally forage over winter searching for berries or whatever they can find. But our bluebird is still alone. I hope he will find some companion bluebirds this winter. There

Aloha from Maui with CVN

Eleven-year-old Isabella Stovall, Carpinteria’s famed tween who raised more than $23,000 for the Carpinteria Skatepark, got the chance to get out of California for a bit and visit her cousin in Maui, Hawaii. She had a great time in the ocean and the pool, taking a copy of CVN with her on her travels through the island.


Inside the nest box the author found five exquisite eggs in a carefully made nest – but the female had disappeared.

Milenka Doukas took the grand prize this past weekend at the 13th annual Island Brewing Company pumpkin carving contest, showing off her rabbit pumpkin house. Doukas participated in the 2019 contest as well. Each of the rabbits nestled into the carving, offering a cute look at the miniature Halloween house; even though there were separate children and adult divisions, Doukas’ design took the cake for the favorite across the board.

Happy Halloween from Carpinteria’s pets!

Dogs certainly weren’t forgotten this Halloween, as Carpinterians of all talents and ages brought their beloved pets to a Halloween dog costume contest at the off-leash dog park in El Carro Park.

Owner Carrie Bradshaw and her adorable golden retriever Buttercup – masquerading as a lion for the night, won the hearts of many.

Carpinteria Middle School filled with ghosts, ghostbusters and Gilmore Girls on Friday during the costume contest, held during lunch on the campus on Oct. 29. Students jumped at the chance to show off their costume making talents.

Showing off their Chilton Preparatory School spirit, Gilmore Girls fans, from left, Harper Rowbottom, Holliday Smith, Ella Sandu, Molly Diamond, Lucia Smith, and Madison Lee became part of the Stars Hallow family for the day. Josue Lopez and Samuel Martinez “hopped” to class all day.

Science teacher Chris Mastrovito and student Eva Overbach were quick to protect the school from all things ghoulish.

Handling the holidays while trying to lose weight CVN

WELLNESS WARRIOR LEAH HARDING We are approaching one of the best times of year – in my opinion. I love the holidays. The smells, the decorations, the excitement in the air and especially the food. However, if you are someone who has been working on getting healthier and losing weight, this time may bring anxiety and stress. But dieting through the holidays does not have to be a chore. It does not mean that you need to miss out on all the good foods and drinks either. There is one key word I use as the main goal for all of my clients: balance. You can enjoy foods and even imbibe without undoing your progress; you just have to keep everything in balance. Here are some tips. If you are attending a family dinner, potluck meal or holiday party, bring a dish of something you want to eat and rely on that to fill your plate. Then you can still take smaller portions of the other, possibly decadent items, without feeling like you’re blowing your whole diet. Stick to regular meals prior to a holiday meal or party. I know, you’ve probably been taught to skimp on food throughout the day, so you have more calories for the big meal. Unfortunately, this rarely works like you think it will. When you eat lighter, you will typically end up being so hungry at the event that you’ll overindulge. Fill up on protein. While the star of most holiday meals is the turkey, ham or prime rib, most of the side dishes are lacking in the protein department. Most side dishes are carb and fat heavy. So, fill up on protein, either before or during the meal. This will help you feel satiated and again, avoid overindulging. My holiday trick when going to a catered event or one which serves primarily hors d’oeuvres is to have a ready-made protein shake about an hour before I leave. It’s just enough to take the edge off. Choose your indulgences strategically. This means that if you want to enjoy pie after dinner, don’t also have cookies earlier in the day. Maybe it means you have pie but forgo the whipped cream. The pie will still be delicious on its own. Savor the bites of decadence you choose to eat and don’t feel bad. Tip: This is the same advice I’d give while on vacation.

The problem with the holidays is using them as an excuse to over-indulge. One day of overeating is not going to undo all of your progress.

Ultimately, choose memories over calories. Enjoy the time with your family and friends and be thankful that we can even gather this year. The problem with the holidays is using them as an excuse to over-indulge. One day of overeating is not going to undo all of your progress. But if you have Thanksgiving, leftovers for a few nights, then a Friendsgiving, then a holiday party, then you make cookies, then someone in your office brings more cookies and it keeps going and going, you can see how that will impact your body. Additionally, if you’ve been dieting for a while, having one day of a large calorie surplus will be processed and expelled rather efficiently. Even if you aren’t dieting, the same thing will happen. Our bodies are well-oiled machines when it comes to single calorie surpluses here and there. It is very unlikely to change the big picture much. Sure, the scale may go up for a day or two, but that’s usually due to eating more carbohydrates. Carbs require more water to break down in our body, so with increased carbs come increased water weight. But water weight is not fat and won’t stick around long. My advice: skip the scale until you’re back in your routine and you’ll be thankful that you chose to be fully present with your family and friends, instead of worrying about if you ate too much cranberry sauce one day out of the year. Fun fact: According to a 2016 study, the average American gains .2% at Thanksgiving time and .4% at Christmas time. That usually equates to around one pound between the two. So even if you “go for it” and really enjoy the holidays, one pound isn’t a huge increase. The bigger point is that you stay in your routine and don’t fall out of the good habits you’ve created, or it will be much harder to get back on track.

THE BOOK NOOK Friends of the Carpinteria Library recommend... “Unreliable Memoirs” By Clive James

The first line of the preface of “Unreliable Memoirs” says so much: “Most first novels are disguised autobiographies. This autobiography is a disguised novel.” You may be familiar with author Clive James as a renowned critic of literature, film and television. His death in 2019 left a crevasse where once wit, humor, joy had enlivened critiques. James left us with numerous books, including this remembrance of his youth in Australia. By turns, tragic, informative and laugh out loud funny, Clive James’ early life is a fascinating read. The characters in his life are colorful and so well described that you feel you have met them. James’ description of his school years reflects all the agonies of any young man seeking to find his footing in society. Adventures, mishaps and missteps are told with a self-deprecating humor that carries the story rollicking along. Whether it is athletics, math or his long, long puberty, there is forever a smile of recognition. Underlying all this entertainment are moments of self-examination. James pro-

vides the reader with a charming, easy read – somehow becoming deeper on reflection as you reluctantly finish the book. —Susan Williams, bookstore volunteer

Carpinteria Library recommends... “Other Boys” By Damian Alexander

“Other Boys” by Damian Alexander is a graphic memoir and a touching coming of age story. Damian and his family have moved, and he is now the new kid at his middle school. Because of his previous experience, he decides to not to speak at the new school. If he doesn’t speak, no one will pay attention to him, and he won’t get bullied. Despite his plan, the other students are able to figure out that his mother is dead, his father is not in the picture, he is being raised in a low-income household by his grandparents, and that he doesn’t have anything in common with the other boys. All of the other students have found their clique and he wishes that he can belong just like the others. His school and grandmother decide to have Damian meet with the school therapist and he finally gets the help he needs. The bright illustrations contrast the heavy themes of the book making it an accessible read for both children and adults. Recommended for middle grade graphic novel readers. “Other Boys” is available to checkout with your library card. —Blanca Ramirez, librarian, Carpinteria Library

How the queen got her name BY VINCE BURNS

It’s well known that rincón is Spanish for “corner” or “elbow” and that Spanish explorers (most notably de Anza’s 1776 expedition) first used “Rincón” and its derivative “Rinconada” to describe the sharp bulge or point on the coast created by Rincon Creek’s sediments. Add English to the mix and we are left with the bilingual and somewhat redundant “Rincon Point” we use today. The name Rincon Point displaced the Chumash placename (“Shuku” and variants) for their own settlement at Rincon Creek, despite the fact that they and their ancestors had been on site for many thousands of years. It’s also well known that Rincon Point has acquired another name, a bit fancier – “Queen of the Coast,” which gives the famous surf spot additional pizazz. Much more than mere branding or a realtor’s kitschy gimmick, the Queen moniker honors the place’s beauty and waves and gives it a regal vibe. But who came up with “Queen of the Coast” and when?

Solving the “Queen” puzzle

The available evidence is that the QOTC honorific goes back exactly 40 years to a magazine story written by Santa Barbara surfer and photographer Don Balch who used it to headline and frame his June 1981 Surfer article: “La Rinconada del Mar: The Queen of the Coast.” Alas, Surfer magazine is no more – dying (take your pick) of either natural or unnatural causes a year ago at the age of 60 – but Balch’s nickname lives on, gathering steam over the years. Type “Rincon” and “Queen of the Coast” into a search engine and you’ll come back with 500,000 hits, covering everything from websites hawking Rincon T-shirts and posters, to the Camarillo Hotel and Tourism Association, to information on the Rincon Brewery’s La Reina Lager – a tribute to the Point. Clearly, Don Balch started a really big ball rolling in the nickname department. How did his brainstorm come about? According to Balch, he was “putting the magazine story together and thinking how nothing compares to Rincon because

The Spanish settlers’ use of the term “Rincón” displaced the Chumash placename (“Shuku” and variants) for their own settlement at Rincon Creek. Pictured, Don Balch on Rincon Hill in 1980 checking the Point’s surf. it’s a sort of ‘swell magnet’ with a super long ride. It’s an elegant and majestic wave that’s just unique. I thought how the Santa Barbara Mission is often called the queen of the missions for its beauty and then it came to me that Rincon is the queen of the coast.” Bingo! The rest is history. The name has stuck, the posters have been printed, and Rincon Point was made regal by Balch.

Don Balch

Don Balch (b. 1952) first surfed Rincon Point (with local legend Andy Neumann) in early 1966 and was present for every major surfing event there from then until 1989. When not in the Rincon water himself, Balch always had a camera in hand. Balch sold his first surf photograph (to Surfing magazine) in 1974, and his photos and stories have appeared in all the important surfing publications. He also created several seminal surf films highlighting Rincon. Filmmaker Wyatt Daily recently included footage from Balch’s films in his award-winning “Spoons: A Santa Barbara Story” (2019), a documentary about legends Renny Yater and George Greenough’s contributions to surfing (most taking place at Rincon). All this shows

that Don’s credentials as a preeminent curator of surfing history, especially at Rincon Point, are impeccable.

Rincon in the early 1980s

Besides its catchy and enduring headline, Balch’s Surfer article is noteworthy for other reasons. First, it contains a useful surf history of the Point, making all of the important stops along the way, from Gates Foss to Yater to Tom Curren. But the article is most fun for its priceless snap-

shot of the 1981 cultural moment at Rincon complete with electronic-gate-card moochers, “locals only” tribalism (local black wetsuits versus dayglow wetsuits from L.A.) and a heart-felt homage to the place’s regulars. Impressively, almost all of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s Rincon gang that Balch captured in his article are still regularly hitting the beach. The furthest afield is Ron Wolfe who reported in for this article from distant Rote Island at the far southernmost end of Indonesia, where he (appropriately) runs the Nemberala Beach Surf School. So, what’s it feel like to have given an enduring nickname to one of the world’s top surf spots? Balch said: “It makes me feel really good. I was stoked when Surfer went with my title on its cover.” Definitely! Let’s give Balch a hearty congratulations for creatively crafting a fitting moniker for our beloved Rincon Point. Thanks, Don! 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 and locals there, get in touch with Vince at and (805) 758-0338. Note: A future article will run a complete “where are they now” for all the locals in Balch’s influential article.

Runners from across California take on Franklin Trail BY MARK WILKINSON • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

At daybreak on Saturday, a steady stream of cars began arriving at Carpinteria High School for the fifth Annual Island View Trail Run. The event attracted trail runners from across Southern California; over a third of the 115 participants arrived from locations outside Santa Barbara County. The event tested runners’ stamina and speed at three different distances at Franklin Trail. An overcast morning set the stage for the four-mile, 10-mile and 16-mile events. Those running the longest distance burst through the marine layer at over 1,000 feet and ran in the sunshine to the top of the 3,800-foot-high Santa Ynez Mountains. Carpinteria’s Travis Madden completed the 16-mile course just seconds over two hours and 24 minutes, for a first-place finish in the men’s division. Annie Larsen from Orinda, California, covered the 16 miles in three hours and 30 minutes to take first place in the women’s category. Kathleen Baker of Ventura took first place in the women’s division for the 10-mile event, traversing the course in just over one hour and 40 minutes. To win the men’s ten-miler category, Zach Schrock

from Santa Barbara logged a time of one hour, 24 minutes, and 36 seconds. Below the marine layer in the hazy fog, the four-mile event provided an eerie Halloween Eve atmosphere for the 50 people who raced up and down the popular trail. Hailing from Riverside, California, Kalista Tibbels-Guerrero took top honors in the women’s division for the four-miler in a scant 35 minutes and 11 seconds. Carpinteria’s Cian Figueras blazed through the four-mile course in 29 minutes and 18 seconds. “After skipping last year’s event, it is reassuring to have so many people participate this year,” said Nancy Kaplan, event director. “We especially want to thank the runners who, along with the government agencies, the local businesses, and dozens of volunteers, make this event possible.” Organizers overseeing the maintenance of the eight-mile-long route include Santa Barbara County Trails Council, Los Padres Forest Association and Montecito Trails Foundation. Proceeds from the Island View Trail Run support maintenance of the Franklin Trail each year.

Top-ranked Warriors water polo prepares for CIF run

After playing a makeup match against Santa Barbara’s junior varsity squad, the top ranked Carpinteria Warriors water polo team is preparing for the CIF playoffs starting this week. The Warriors, who have earned a #1 Division 5 ranking with a spectacular 19-4 season, got a first-round bye, and will host the winner the match between the Ramona Rams Palm Springs Indians. The second-round game will be held on Thursday at the Carpinteria Community Pool. The Warriors went undefeated in league play and were led by a strong senior group and a standout season by sophomore Asher Smith. Coach Jon Otsuki and the boys will be looking to prove their #1 status going into the playoffs.

Carpinteria tennis hosts Citrus Coast Finals, prepares for CIF

The Warriors’ girls tennis coach, Citrus Coast League’s Coach of the Year Charles Bryant, has helped the team through a strong season as they prepare for a run in the CIF postseason. Carpinteria hosted the Citrus Coast League Finals last week, and the second day of competition set the scene for Malibu versus Malibu in the battle for first place, and Carpinteria versus Carpinteria playing for third place in both singles and doubles. “I was very pleased with how the Carpinteria girls played today, it’s definitely not easy to face your friend and team- Carpinteria girls tennis hosted the mate in a competitive match,” Bryant Citrus Coast League Finals. said. “But they all played well, had great sportsmanship and were very relaxed yet supportive of their opponents (and) teammates. It was great to see and fun to watch.” The Warriors will host a wildcard match vs. Segerstrom this week and will continue competition against Bellflower with a win.

Cate prepares for CIF playoffs after one-loss season

The Cate Rams have been a powerhouse in eight-man football this season, starting undefeated and losing only a last-minute thriller 44-40 against rival Thacher in Ojai. Their final game was slated to be against Malibu, but due to “safety precautions” Malibu was forced to forfeit the game when they could not field enough players. The forfeit counts as a win for Cate and puts the Rams at 7-1 overall and ranked #2 in their division. On Friday, the Rams will host Windward High School for a home game at 7 p.m. Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium and are looking to continue with a win into a deep CIF playoff run.

Carpinteria and Cate compete in County XC Championships

Runners from Carpinteria and Cate competed in the Santa Barbara County Cross Country Championships in Lompoc last week, with two athletes showing up strong from each school. Carpinteria’s Marvin Lujano earned the top spot in the Frosh/Soph division with a time of 17:33:13, making him the fastest in the county for his grade. Cate’s Anna Disorbo came in a close second behind Phoebe Wolf Lyons from perennial powerhouse Dos Pueblos, with Carpinteria’s Marvin Lujano was a time of 19:22 on the flat, fast River Park the fastest in the county in the layout. Cate’s girls team also finished frosh/soph division. second overall behind Dos Pueblos. The Warriors top finishers on varsity were Hugo Alvorado, who earned 8th place with a time of 18:43.50 and Kate Cooney, who earned 14th place with a time of 20:46.58. Both teams will compete on Thursday at the Citrus Coast League finals at Lake Casitas.

The senior cheerleaders and band leaders have kept Warrior Spirit strong during the football season.

Warriors close out a winless football season

Carpinteria played their final game of the football season against Santa Paula, and although they were able to put points on the board for the first time in four games, they fell to the Cardinals 6-38 – ending the season at 0-10. Carpinteria’s football program has struggled recently. In the last three seasons they have finished 2-7 (2019), 0-2 (2020) and 0-10 (2021). It has been over two years since the Warriors have won a game, when they beat Vasquez 40-14 on Nov. 1, 2019. During a shortened 2020 season, they lost both games they played and finished 0-2. This season was a string of big losses, with the Warriors averaging only 3.5 points per game, while allowing an average of 41.4 for their opponents. They suffered seven shutouts in ten games this season. But throughout the season, the team has shown poise, and quarterback Matthew Munoz and two-way player Dominic Herrera were able to supply some quality highlights this year. The Warrior spirit has stayed strong, and the community came out to support the team during home games, as this year saw the reopening of Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium for spectators following a restricted capacity during Covid-19. For Senior Night, the Warrior celebrated the football players, cheerleaders and band members who will be saying goodbye to Carpinteria after this school year. Carpinteria will look to rebuild in the offseason, and athletes will transition to the start of new seasons in winter sports.
