District paints over Warrior statue after vandalism No suspect identified

The Warrior Head statue was painted over by the district after it was vandalized with red paint. BY EVELYN SPENCE The district has painted over the Carpinteria High School Warrior Head statue with white paint, Superintendent Diana Rigby confirmed, after the controversial statue was vandalized late last week. Last Thursday, Carpinteria High School staff arrived at the school and discovered that the Warrior Head statue, located near the school’s front entrance, had been covered in red paint. A suspect has not been identified as of Monday. A report from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said the paint appears to be “brushed on.” Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate any witnesses. According to the sheriff’s office report, construction equipment might have obstructed the high school camera’s view of the statue. “The Warrior Head vandalism is reprehensible, and we are reviewing our cameras to identify the perpetrators. We would appreciate anyone with more information about this incident to contact us,” Superintendent Rigby said in a statement last week. The district has faced fierce criticism in the past over the statue, which was

In 2009, the CUSD school board narrowly voted to remove several uses of the Warrior head imagery on athletic patches and floor mats, but chose to keep the statue in place, after a student who identified himself as part-Chumash asked the school to remove the Warrior Head symbol. Thursday’s vandalism came two weeks after the school board voted 0-5 not to redesign the Warrior Head statue, citing the $28,000 cost of the redesign and the statue’s past controversy. The motion to redesign the school’s sign was originally brought up due to the

With age group addition, 65.2% of eligible county residents fully vaccinated With the 5-11 age group now eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine, the county reports that 65.2% of eligible county residents are fully vaccinated, compared to 61.3% of the total county population. The county has now administered 609,599 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine to Santa Barbara County residents. On Monday, 35 new cases were reported, with one case in the South County unincorporated area – which includes Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria – for a total of 1,701 cases and 23 deaths in the area. That day, more cases were seen in women, with 19 cases, compared to 16 in men. Four deaths were reported on Nov. 12, with one in the city of Santa Barbara, two in Lompoc and one in Santa Maria. Two of the individuals were 70+ years old, and two were in the 50-69 age group. Two had underlying health conditions. Between the week of Nov. 5 and Nov. 10, the county reported 312 cases of Covid-19, with the majority of cases seen in the 30-49 age group at 110 cases, followed by 82 cases in the 18-29 age group. The county also reported 32 hospitalizations in that week with 12 in the ICU. The majority of cases during the prior week, between Oct. 29 and Nov. 4, were seen in the unvaccinated populations. During that week, 230 cases were seen in the unvaccinated populations compared to 71 cases in the vaccinated populations. The California Department of Public Health encourages residents to get vaccinated against Covid-19, and if eligible, get a booster shot to prevent a potential winter surge. Booster shots are now available for J&J, Moderna and Pfizer vaccines in the U.S. Per the CDC’s

recommendation, individuals can now mix and match the doses and choose their booster, regardless of which vaccine they originally received. “With cases ticking up in most parts of the state, we cannot let our guard down and we cannot underestimate this deadly virus,” Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, California Department of public health director and state public health officer, said in a press release. “While we have a nation-leading vaccination effort, children ages 5-11 years have just become eligible, and last year at this time our Covid-19 cases increased at a dangerous rate, so we can’t underscore enough the importance to vaccinate and boost to protect yourself, your family and all of our communities against this virus,” Aragón added. The department released several tips for protection against the Covid-19 virus during the holiday season, which includes getting the Covid-19 vaccine; staying home if sick; getting tested before and after traveling for the holidays; wearing a mask; gathering outside or increasing airflow in indoor spaces; and following local public health guidance. The county also reminds residents to get their flu shots, which are available throughout the county. Flu vaccines are available under most insurance plans. To learn where to get vaccinated for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/ vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/testing. For more information from the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, call 211 and press #4 or email the county at PHDDOC. PIOCommunitySupport@sbcphd.org.

Santa Monica Road exit scheduled to open Nov. 22

The construction areas near Padaro saw a four-vehicle crash on Monday – the second in the area within a few hours – and sent traffic to a slow crawl, the latest of crashes and traffic jams in the construction zones. The accident required three tows and resulted in severe traffic jams. The speed limit in construction areas remains at 55 mph. Construction continues in the area on the Highway 101 project, with several closures projected over the next few months. On the northbound side, one lane between Linden 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. The on- and off-ramps at Santa Monica Road remain closed, with a scheduled reopening set for Nov. 22. Crews are finishing up with installing concrete, safety barriers and drainage improvements for the new Santa Monica and Via Real Intersection and the streets’ on- and off-ramps and shoulder areas. The off-ramp at Sheffield Drive is scheduled to reopen at the beginning of 2022, while the on-ramp will reopen in mid-2022. On the southbound side, one lane between Sheffield Drive and Santa Claus Lane will be closed between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. on Sunday nights and between 8 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. on Monday through Thursday nights.

Jo Medel Holland 10/28/2021

Jo Medel Holland – also known as “Aunt Chepie” – passed away quietly at the age of 91 on Oct. 28 in New Underwood, South Dakota. Jo was born in Santa Barbara, California. As a young girl, she moved to Carpinteria, California, where she graduated from Carpinteria High School. Jo was a rancher’s wife in her early years. She later became an independent mother of two young sons. She was a hard-working, industrious woman, who took a job as a manager for the local Safeway, where she met and began a vibrant life with her husband Dennis. They had several business ventures together, including their real estate and property management business. The two enjoyed traveling, especially to Hawaii. They loved sailing to the Channel Islands and entertaining friends and family. Jo had great love for her sons, her family, and many nieces and nephews and their spouses. Nana Jo is survived by her son Mark (Reva) Ortega; four grandchildren, Andre, Cody, Caitlin and Angelo; and one great-grandchild, Vittoro. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dennis Holland; son Damon Ortega; her parents Refugio Medel and Jesusita Saragosa Medel; and her brothers and sisters, Amalia “Aunt Molly” Medel, Lucio Medel, Albert Medel, Carmen Olivares, Henry “Kiki” Medel and Manuel Medel. A celebration of Jo’s life will take place this coming spring in Carpinteria, California. Friends and family are welcome to sign the online guestbook at kirkfuneralhome. com.

Dorothy Dowling 01/18/1927 – 11/03/2021

Dorothy (Eichelberger) Dowling of Sunnyvale, California passed away quietly on Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021. She was 94 years old. Born in San Jose and raised in Santa Barbara, California, Dorothy was the youngest child of Lela (Rubeck) Eichelberger and Roy Eichelberger. Her older siblings were Robert Eichelberger, and sisters Helen (Eichelberger) Barry and Alta Ruth (Eichelberger) Wallin Huntley. Dorothy’s father, Roy, was the founding principal of Santa Barbara Junior High School. She earned a degree in Elementary Education because, as her father told his daughters, “You can always find work as a teacher.” She graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1948. During her time at the college, she was a member of Chi Alpha Delta, Kappa Delta Pi and Crown and Scepter. She went on to teach at Inglewood and Santa Barbara elementary schools. At age 15, Dorothy met her future husband, Lescher Dowling, at a school dance. He was immediately smitten and did his best to win her affection, but it wasn’t until Lescher was drafted into the army during WW2 to serve overseas in the China Burma India (CBI) theater that Dorothy decided it was her patriotic duty to write to him regularly. It was during

Once her children had left the nest, Dorothy expanded her horizons by traveling with her husband to Elderhostel programs and CBI Veteran reunions, enrolling in classes, studying Eastern philosophy, starting a meditation group, baking perfect apple pies, refinishing antiques, making hats, joining the P.E.O. Sisterhood women’s organization and later, a local Memoires Writing group. She also enjoyed working out at the YMCA, doing volunteer work, and playing the Tripoli & Mexican Train game with family and friends. A collection of her whimsical verse was published in The Beastlies Alphabet, a humorous children’s book, and was illustrated by her daughter. In everything Dorothy did, she was thoughtful, creative, funny, loving and supportive. It is fair to say she lived a happy and fulfilled life. Dorothy is survived by her beloved husband of 71 years, Lescher Dowling; her children, Richard Dowling and Lela (Dowling) Cirocco; grandchildren Sara and Skye; and great grandchildren Katheryne, Kimberly, Brielli, and Gianna, as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

A homemaker, she volunteered literally thousands of hours, over many decades, for nonprofit organizations including the Los Angeles Zoo Association, Friends of Brentwood and Carpinteria libraries, Aeromedico of Santa Barbara and the Hearing Loss Association of America, Santa Barbara Chapter.

A David vs. Goliath story

As a lifelong Carpinterian, I have been able to witness some great CIF victories by teams at Carpinteria High School. I’ve witnessed the first and only Baseball Championship in 1974; the first of many CIF Championships in football starting in 1975; the back-to-back Girls Tennis Championships in 2012 and 2013; the Boys Soccer State Championship in 2018; and the Boys Swimming team’s first CIF title in May. Over the years, we as a community have had many celebrated victories, but what the Boys’ Water Polo team did last week may just top them all. You see, Carpinteria High School has about 650 students enrolled, ranked 982nd in school size in the state of California. We are a very small public high school. Our Water Polo team just won the CIF Division 5 Championship, including victories in the last week at Downey and at Burbank high schools. Burbank High has 2,554 students and Downey High has over 4,000 – making it the fourth largest school in the entire state! It was a true David and Goliath story, but David had a secret this time. Just get the giant in the water and everything will work out fine. Way to go boys! We are so proud of you.

We’re better than this

I just finished reading the CVN article “School Board says no to CHS statue redesign” (CVN, Vol. 28, No. 7). Who are these school board trustees? It appears that the issue requires a fair amount of common sense. Does this board realize that the offensive caricature was originally a product from high school teenagers in the 1970s? Surely if other groups have removed their offensive race-based mascots, I would think that a city such as Carpinteria would too. One public commenter, speaking about the Warrior Spirit, said “we” should never allow it to die – as though there’s a nexus that requires the statue’s continued archaic existence in order to prove you’re a real Carpinteria High School supporter, and truly a CHS Warrior. Newsflash! Your gym shorts don’t fit anymore. The best public commenter with his statement, very reminiscent of a past president, said, “We have some good people to go ahead and make it anew (…) We hope that you will not remove it.” The mascot does indeed have a place in Carpinteria history. Just how Confederate Civil War Statues that glorify past injustices are relegated to a museum, so

Protect Sandpiper mobile homes

Some call Carpinteria a charming, sleepy town. We may be sleepy, until a big rich development comes to town to try and “improve” it. When that happens, we wake up. My husband and I bought a mobile home in Sandpiper Mobile Home Village 30 years ago; our main motivation was rental control. As far as we knew, Sandpiper was not for sale. But nothing is for sale until someone comes along and makes you an offer you can’t resist – that is what happened with Sandpiper on Dec. 15, 2020, when we got new owners. They sent us a letter telling us about their extraordinary expense increases, and two propositions about how they want us to pay for them, in “Agreement Between Sandpiper Tenant Majority and Management For Rent Increase For Property Taxes.” At Sandpiper, 40% of the mobile homeowners are under rent control, while 60% are not. The new Sandpiper owners want the majority of mobile homeowners – 141 out of 281 – to sign the agreement. The rent increase still has to be approved by the Board of Rent Stabilization at the city of Carpinteria. I strongly believe that I am protected with rental control, and that the board is going to make a decision in favor of the mobile homeowners who are under rent control. In the coming weeks, we will get the answer.

Burdens of the proposed inn

I can easily see the burdens of the proposed Surfliner Inn, but I cannot forecast the financial burdens. However, I cannot help but feel that they are somewhere out there, waiting to be realized. One immediate real burden of the hotel will be the loss of the view. Two or three stories will only further dilute the city’s quiet charm and spirit. A commercial structure of that size cannot help but impede traffic, with hotel personnel coming to work, going home, suppliers coming and leaving, let alone arriving visitors. People trying to get up and down Linden Avenue are going to be up in arms. People arriving and heading out to destinations from the railroad station will increase traffic right at the train tracks. It is pretty obvious that the increase in traffic will impede traffic headed for the beach. Arriving trains will stay at the crossing longer. Of course, I haven’t seen the Surfliner’s blueprints, but I have to think that a handy, good-sized parking lot is going to suffer. With those foreseeable burdens, how long will it be before a traffic light is determined to be necessary? Will the hotel not serve as a handier, cost effective, more convenient lodging than trying to book a room anywhere in Santa Barbara? Why not, rather than trying to find lodging a year in advance in Santa Barbara, just stay at the new place in Carpinteria? Catch a train, eliminate driving and avoid trying to park in Santa Barbara. People can spend their money and time in Santa Barbara and catch a train back to Carpinteria for a night cap in the hotel’s bar and a night’s rest. The word will soon spread; for anyone wanting to visit Santa Barbara, the new hotel in Carp is ideal.

Frank Torreano Carpinteria

Vaccination is the way

In responding to Andrew Pfeffer ’s letter (CVN, Vol. 28, No. 8) promoting the reopening of the county, I can safely say that we all want our lives to return to normal. However, I must start with the errant math in the letter. If 71% of the eligible county population is fully vaccinated, those numbers don’t include ages 0–12. Since 5–12 has since become eligible, I’ll only include that portion of our society. Approximately 15% of our county population is between 5–12 years old. So, by multiplication we get (0.71 x (1.0 - 0.15)) = .60 or 60%. That is nowhere near what was thought to be herd immunity. Further, as this is a novel virus that we’re still learning about, it appears that herd immunity may not be possible. A statement about science can dispel some of the misgivings of Mr. Pfeffer: “Science is not the truth. Science is finding the truth. When science changes its opinion, it didn’t lie to you. It learned more” — from an unknown author. U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen aptly stated on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” “It really depends on the pandemic. The pandemic has been calling the shots for the economy and for inflation … And if we want to get inflation down, I think continuing to make progress against the pandemic is the most important thing we can do.” So the best way to progress to a more normal state of our lives will be to have a high percentage of fully vaccinated rates in our community. Instead of herd immunity, think community immunity. If the cases stay low, that’s how we make a recovery. With another surge in cases, as we are seeing in Europe and some parts of the U.S., we may have to deal with yet unknown variants. The only solution is to be vigilant and vaccinated. Then normalcy will return.

School District principals offer response plans for struggling students BY EVELYN SPENCE

Four Carpinteria Unified School District principals presented 2021-2022 student success plans for their respective schools at last Tuesday’s school board meeting, offering a look at the demographics of each school as well as individual goals to help get struggling Carpinteria students up to grade-level standards. First up was Jamie Persoon, principal of Canalino Elementary and Carpinteria Family schools, who reported that the school currently has 517 students compared to 80 staff members. Of those students, 74.7% are Hispanic; 23.4% are white; 0.8% are Asian; and 1.2% were classified as multiple ethnicities or no response. The school also reported that 28% of its students are English language learners; 10.3% are fluent and proficient in English, and 4.7% are fully bilingual. More than half, or 59.4% of all students, come from socioeconomically disadvantaged households and qualify for free or reduced lunch. Persoon noted that the school believes that is a “much lower number than it actually is.” “We usually (count) 70% to 75% for socioeconomically disadvantaged,” Persoon said. Persoon went over several goals that the school hopes to tackle, which includes getting 60% of students at grade level standards for STAR reading and STAR math assessments; putting a special focus on English Language Learners; increasing student leadership opportunities; and facilitating college campus visits, such as with the UC Santa Barbara chemistry department. She also wants to reward students who have met Accelerated Reader goals and other growth levels through assemblies. Persoon said that while that is not possible at the moment, she is instead going to each classroom to hand out the certificates personally. “They’re really motivated,” she said. “There’s no prize or incentive, they’re just really excited to get a certificate.” In kindergarten through third grade, the school also implements 30-minute daily English language development programs for English language learners. She emphasized the school must put a focus on helping English language learners, noting that if a student isn’t meeting

The ultimate goal, Principal Gerardo Cornejo said, is that all students will graduate from high school ready for college or a career.

fluency standards by the end of 5th grade, “it is very unlikely they ever will.” In response to board questions, Persoon confirmed that 25 to 30 English Language Learners in 5th grade are moving on to middle school without reaching full biliteracy.

Aliso Elementary School

As of the 2020-2021 school year, 86% of students at Aliso Elementary School identify as Hispanic; 12% are white; and 2% are classified as African American, Asian, multiple ethnicities or no response. “When you get to that (small) of a percentage, sometimes it gives you a ‘no’ number just to protect the identity of the child in that cohort,” Veronica Gallardo, Aliso principal, said during the meeting. Enrollment in the English Language Learner program stands at 197 students; 150 students, or 47%, are English learners; 39% are proficient in English; and 14% have been reclassified with full biliteracy. Gallardo went over several goals for the elementary school, noting that like Canalino, they want 60% of fifth grade students to meet or exceed English Language Arts and Math standards. The school also will focus on getting 100% of Aliso families to participate in home literary opportunities and getting 60% of students to meet district reading benchmarks. The school also put an emphasis on the importance of early release Wednesdays, which allow TK through fifth grade teach-

ers to participate in teacher development. Gallardo went over the different programs Aliso offers for students, such as adopting teacher-classroom goals and individual student goals. “Giving (students) vocabulary and giving them those different opportunities for text complexity and range is going to help support them in meeting (their goals),” Gallardo said. “We want to see kids working together,” she later added. Board member Andy Sheaffer asked Gallardo which students were struggling the most, noting that from his perspective, “it’s the boys.” He also expressed concern about students receiving books that they are uninterested in, referencing his own experience with his kids. “I (feel) that by the time they reach fifth grade, they’re almost tired of reading because they’re just getting books crammed down their throat. They’re not reading books that are interesting to them,” he said. “(Can we) reach those students who (...) aren’t finding the books they’re being given to read interesting?” Gallardo noted that is a problem that often pops up for kids who read below their grade level, stating that the school balances that by offering “alphabet books,” to help kids increase their vocabulary. “We’re not going to keep kids at their reading levels all the time,” she said. “It’s a very flexible grouping.”

Teacher Andrea Edmondson leads an English Language Development class at Canalino Elementary School.

Principal Lisa O’Shea kept her report to the board focused on literacy, noting several programs offered for struggling students. I want to assure you that even though I’m not focusing on our core classes (in this presentation), they are thriving,” O’Shea said. She reported that 79% of students at CMS identify as Hispanic; 17% as white; 2% as Asian, and 2% as other. Of the school’s 437 students, 27% are classified as English Language Learners and 35% are fluent English proficient. She also reported that 71% are socioeconomically disadvantaged. O’Shea identified several key goals geared toward struggling readers, which includes sixth grade reading intervention classes, afterschool tutoring and a campuswide focus on literacy through independent reading and other methods. She reported that students in the reading intervention classes are showing progress, with an increase to 5.69 STAR reading score on Sept. 25, compared to a 3.85 STAR reading score on Aug. 26. She clarified that the tutoring isn’t “drop-in” on the students’ part; rather, teachers assign tutoring or reach out to the parents of students who are struggling. The school has also promoted Girls Inc. among other clubs aimed at fostering student connections, including guitar, ukulele, ASB, chess, Bob Ross, CADE, SAFE and more.

Carpinteria High School

At Carpinteria High School, of the school’s 697 students, 74% identified as Latino; 22% as white; 1% as Asian, and 3% as multi-ethnic. The school also reported 68% of its students are socioeconomically disadvantaged, while 20% are English Language Learners. Principal Gerardo Cornejo reported that CHS wants to increase the percentage of English learners who meet grade level standards by at least 10%, and that the number of long-term English learners will decrease by at least 5%. The school also hopes to reassign at least 10% of its English Language Learners as proficient in fluent English. He went over several goals for the school, which included providing early intervention for English Language Arts and math students who were below grade level. Those students would attend after school tutoring three days a week and be referred to the student success center. The school updated its English Language Arts reading collection and use teacher’s morning meetings to modify teaching strategies and fine tune essays and grading strategies. The school will also “develop comment assessments to monitor student growth (and) reduce the number of problems per assignment to increase feedback to each student,” according to the report presented at the meeting. Cornejo said CHS also wants to increase the percentage of students who report feeling connected to the school and motivated academically to 95%; currently, that number hovers at 90%. Another goal is to increase daily attendance to 90% or higher. College visits will also be offered for ninth through eleventh grades during the spring to increase access to secondary education opportunities. The ultimate goal, Cornejo said, is that all students will graduate from high school ready for college or a career.

Thanksgiving memories: pumpkin pie, brandy and … tar? CVN

THE SEAWITCH SAYS AMY OROZCO Welcome to The Sea Witch Says, a monthly advice column where we’ll tackle the stickier social situations specific to la vida Carpinteria. I know many of you readers from my tenure as CVN editor and look forward to making more friends. If life at the World’s Safest Beach isn’t perfect, share why not and I’ll do my best to remedy it. First, a million thanks to Donnie Nair, CVN’s first advice columnist. The town owes her big time. Donnie set a high bar; I’ll do my best to rise to her level. Dear Amy O, We love having our ocean swimming neighbors over for a sunset-watching glass of wine and look forward to hosting them on Thanksgiving for dessert – pumpkin and apple pies along with digestifs, maybe some port and brandy. Previously, the beach souvenir tar on their feet wasn’t a problem, but we recently made some upgrades to our home, including new flooring choices. How do I ask them to clean the tar off their

feet or shoes before traipsing across our brand new plush, hand-crafted, white shag rug? I should mention it was very expensive. ––Man with a Rug

Dear Man with a Rug, First, I assume you won’t be serving the port and brandy on the new rug. Second, the easy answer: Ask them. Keep it light, along the lines of “We can’t wait to have you over on Turkey Day and show off some of the changes to our place. We’re like nervous new parents with our gorgeous white carpet and potential stains and spills, so instead of checking proof of vaccination, we’ll be checking for clean feet.” You could check for clean feet, as you told your neighbors you would, though I suggest having slippers or flip flops available for guests by the front door. This is a common in cultures where shoes in the house is considered filthy. As a huge fan of not wearing shoes inside, I’d go further, and have wipes available, too, as well plushy socks and a small bench or chair to sit for removing shoes and putting on slippers or socks. You want to make it easy. In case you would like to convert to a 24/7-no shoes residence, think about having a “Please remove your shoes” sign on or near your front door. Soon, friends and family will know they’ll need to “clean up their act” before

entering your home and won’t show up in lace-up boots or the cute heels requiring undressing upon arrival. Should you go the no-shoes route, it is best to let your guest know beforehand. You sound like a considerate and thoughtful host, so I’m sure your visitors will respond in kind. Also, it’s your house and your rules. Remember that.

Dear Amy O, I often find myself with skyrocketing blood pressure when a Longtime Family Friend (LFF) of my parents feels perfectly comfortable dominating the conversation on Carpinteria land use issues. It’s not a matter of whether I agree or not, but I feel the spewing of misinformation is wrong. The “pitchfork” I sent didn’t seem to register. The holidays are upon us, and as is tradition, we all will be spending a lot of time together. I’m tired of seething. And my tongue hurts from biting it so much. Any suggestions? ––Talking Turkey Dear Talking Turkey, The holidays sure do accentuate all of life’s annoyances, don’t they? Does Uncle Bob really have to ruin the Norman Rockwell scene by chewing with his mouth wide open and nonstop lip smacking AGAIN? Kudos to you for recognizing a possible detonation in the holiday minefield of overeating, overdrinking, exhaustion, feelings of inadequacy, boorish relatives, missing those not with us any longer, violated expectations and too tight pants. You rate higher than average on the emotional-maturity-o-meter. The funny, as in frustrating not “haha,” thing about family and LFFs is it

can be so darn tough to disentangle from the dynamics. It’s quite possible that you view your parents LFF in the same category as your parents, which often translates to you: child + LFF: Authority figure = imbalanced adult discussions. What do you want from your time spent this conversation hog? Maybe you don’t want to be in the same room but feel you “have to.” A standout perk of adulthood is deciding for oneself whose company to keep. Yes, the holidays require a little more give than take on the part of everyone, but if LFF is a true threat to your wellbeing, as noted by the “skyrocketing blood pressure” in your letter, then you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to excuse yourself. Help get dinner on the table, dishes always need to be washed or trash to be taken out. You get the drift. Perhaps you would like an actual back and forth sharing of viewpoints. Let LFF know that. Make it like a parlor game. Offer to set your phone timer so you both get equal time. Maybe it’s the misinformation you’d like to set straight. Make it into a game, every time you hear a falsehood gobble like a turkey and LFF has to take shot (…or maybe not). How do your parents feel about the one-sided conversations? Do they know how you feel? Even if they aren’t sympathetic, there’s no reason for you to feel chained to your seat forced to listen. Former CVN editor Amy Marie Orozco loves living in Carpinteria, including all the sometime socially sticky situations happening in our seaside setting. Along with giving advice (only when asked), Amy O also edits Cannabis by the Sea Magazine. Have a question for her? Email it to news@coastalview.com.

Strolling into the holiday season PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON Carpinteria’s Holiday Stroll last weekend drew some 140 people, in a festive community event. Organized by Jill Castro and Michael Avery, and featuring 40 local businesses, the Holiday Stroll was a cheery afternoon of shopping and socializing in Carpinteria’s Downtown T. “Everybody was on the streets and with their bags; people were having a great time,” Castro said. “The businesses were really busy. Like SOAP for instance, there were people in there who didn’t even know the store was there. Seastrand had one of its busiest days. People were saying, they wanted us to do it again next year.” Participants voted for their favorite merchant, with Thrifty Flea taking home that title. Additionally, 18 businesses donated gift baskets for raffles, and from sponsor contributions, Castro and Avery were able to make $500 donations to the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation and Kinderkirk Preschool.

Taylor Bush, owner of Seastrand, offered 20% off during the Holiday Stroll.

Event organizer Jill Castro greets strollers and explains the day’s event. At the Carpinteria Arts Center, Brad and Barbara Smith purchase a copy of the recent publication of 100 Carpinteria artists, “Small Town Big Art,” with the help of volunteer Valerie Powdrell.

Water use restrictions and new water-saving tools BY ROBERT MCDONALD, GENERAL MANAGER CARPINTERIA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT

It is hard to believe we are quickly approaching the Thanksgiving holiday and have only received 0.98 inches of rain since October. After two consecutive dry winters starting in December 2019, Carpinteria Valley Water District’s Board of Directors approved ordinance 21-1 on Oct. 13, 2021, which declared a Stage Two Drought Condition. The ordinance implemented water-use restrictions to conserve water and called for a 20% water-use reduction. The county of Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution in July 2021 declaring a Local Drought Emergency, and the governor has declared all counties in the state to be in a Drought Emergency. California is severely dry, and it is incredibly important to make water-conserving habits a part of our daily routines. It is uncertain when we are going to receive sufficient rainfall to replenish the Carpinteria Groundwater Basin and Lake Cachuma. In addition, our State Water Project allocation for 2021 is 5%, with similarly low allocations expected in 2022. The water-use restrictions introduced during this Stage Two Drought Condition are integral to protect our water supplies for human consumption, sanitation and fire protection during these dry periods. The following water-use restrictions are in place to help us meet our goal to use 20% less water over the next 12 to 24 months. By adapting to these changes, our customers can help to stretch our resources and prevent further strain on our groundwater basin. • If you plan to use water to clean buildings, driveways or sidewalks, you must receive approval from the district. This activity should be limited to health and safety-related cleaning. • Irrigation on landscaping shall not runoff onto patios, decks or driveways, walkways, roadways, parking lots or other non-landscaped areas. • Irrigation by hose or movable sprinkler may not occur between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for yards, parks, recreation areas or other landscaped areas. • Irrigation through fixed systems (sprinkler systems), either manually or by timer controller, is prohibited between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., although exceptions can be made if customers are testing their water system or repairing leaks. • Customers shall not irrigate turf or ornamental landscapes during or within twenty-four hours of measurable rainfall – please let the rain replenish your landscapes naturally and be aware of weather changes to promptly adjust your irrigation controllers. • Residential, commercial, public authority, and industrial customers shall not irrigate landscape more than three days a week. • Free-flowing hoses for all uses are prohibited, including while washing boats and vehicles; we ask that you use self-closing shut-off valves. • There are additional requirements for irrigation systems on new development. • Hotels, motels and restaurants are required to display notices of drought conditions and provide suggested actions for saving water at their facilities.

If your business needs drought notice signage, please e-mail conservation@ cvwd.net. For additional information, including rules regarding draining and filling of pools, please refer to ordinance 21-1 located in the document section of our website. We appreciate your help with these water-saving measures to help sustain us through this unpredictable winter. The district is also working on finalizing its automated metered infrastructure (AMI) project with our endpoint exchange program. This will ultimately allow us to view hourly water consumption data and read our meters remotely. This can help district staff and customers detect leaks when they first start and save water. You may see vans that say PMI (Professional Meters Inc.) driving around town or technicians with wagons or buckets carrying equipment through your neighborhood. The program is underway with 35% of our AMI system completed as of this writing. Our staff may be reaching out to you by phone, e-mail or letter if we see suspicious, abnormal water consumption patterns. We have already helped several customers save water and avoid hefty water bills with our new system. One of our residential customers accidentally left a hose running at 10 gallons per minute watering a fruit tree for several days. We were able to notify them about the high consumption and help them find the source. Over the course of a month, this would have been over 430,000 gallons used and over 500 units of water that the customer would have been billed for. In addition, we caught a toilet leak that had used over 3,000 gallons of water in just two days, amounting to four additional units of water in this short period of time. When this project is completed in early 2022, this new technology will be a great tool for helping us save water. CVWD customers will have access to an online portal and mobile application which will provide them with the same water-consumption data that we are able to see on our end, including leak and high usage warnings. To further assist you is conserving water, the district continues to offer rebates to residential and commercial customers for water conservation fixtures and appliances, as well as rebates on WaterWise Landscape upgrades. For district updates, please visit our website cvwd.net, follow us on Twitter @CarpWater or Carpinteria Valley Water District on Facebook and Nextdoor.

Under the settlement, SoCal Edison must implement programs to prevent containments from leaking into the waters, as seen above.

SB Channelkeeper, Ecological Rights Foundation reach settlement with SoCal Edison Santa Barbara Channelkeeper and the Ecological Rights Foundation reached a settlement agreement on Nov. 9 with Southern California Edison, over issues with the company’s contaminants in the waterways. SoCal Edison agreed to clean up facilities that had contaminated the waters, according to a press release from Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. Under the settlement, the company introduce program that prevents harmful toxins from leaving its facilities and leaking into the waterways. The program will be implemented over the next seven years. The company also must monitor and prove that it works. “Edison operates 27 facilities in its service area as storage and processing locations for wooden utility poles treated with the chemical pentachlorophenol. Pentachlorophenol is a wood preservative that contains substantial quantities of chemicals known as dioxins and furans, which are toxic. In fact, many countries have already banned its use because of its harmful effects on humans and the environment,” the press release read. Channelkeeper science and policy director Benjamin Pitterle said that pentachlorophenol is “highly toxic” in areas such as the Goleta slough. “These storage and processing facilities are hotspots for this form of ollution and the agreement will help ensure that our waterways are better protected,” he said in a release. SoCal Edison also must give $160,000 for previous alleged damages to a group that develops water quality protections in California.

Last week, Bishop Garcia Diego High School’s 73 freshman students took a field trip to Fairview Gardens Farm. Students explored several activities including rock painting and bulb planting, and harvesting several items including tangerine, lemons and mint. They also spun wool and explored the greenhouse on the grounds. Parent Courtney Andelman brought up the idea of a farm program for students to help them find relief from the stress of the pandemic, said Chris Melancon of the Center of Urban Agriculture. “Courtney came to us with an idea to have the farm serve as a catalyst for helping Bishop’s students recover from the adverse social impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said. “Our team of nature-based educators assembled a program that not only helped participants understand how healthy food is grown, but also the importance of small-scale agriculture in building community,” he added.

classrooms. “I had so much fun spending time with my friends and with nature. It is not often that we do that nowadays, so it really opened doors for me and my classmates to explore,” Gregson said.

Playa Del Sur 4-H Club cares for farm animals

The Playa Del Sur 4-H Club wrapped up its monthly meetings and gathered cans for its canned food drive, also taking the chance to check on their many animals – including steers, goats, sheep and (a new addition to the bunch) rabbits. Club members are encouraged by their steer’s current weights, Melinda Wittwer said. All four steers are now over 500 pounds. The club’s next meeting is on Dec. 4 at 10 a.m. Contact Ron Vieira at (805) 451-4057 or visit SB4H.org to learn more.

Lupita Loyoa checked the weight of her animal.

The board next door

CVN

IT’S ALL SURFING CHRISTIAN BEAMISH Last Sunday, while fixing dings out behind the garage, I overheard my neighbor say, “Think of it as an early Christmas present.” The young man visiting her was lashing the surfboard she had given him to the roof of his car, and straightaway I noticed the clean thickness flow and hand-foiled fin made from multi-colored layers of resin-tinted fiberglass. I said hello and asked if I could check out the board. Despite a blackened layer of surf wax, the perfect shape and expert fiberglass work were unmistakable: the wide-point forward outline circa 1973, the full-but-well-foiled rails, a light-yellow resin tint deck and sea-glass green bottom, separated by a delicate light-blue pin line, were all brought together at the pintail by a mahogany/balsa/resin panel tail block perfectly fitted and shaped. Twin eighth-inch stringers tapered in a long “V” shape from nose to tail. This was a very special board, and, except for a crudely executed leash loop

“Despite a blackened layer of surf wax, the perfect shape and expert fiberglass work were nmistakable: the wide-point forward outline circa 1973, the full-but-well-foiled rails, a light-yellow resin tint deck and sea-glass green bottom, separated by a delicate light-blue pin line, were all brought together at the pintail by a mahogany/balsa/resin panel tail block perfectly fitted and shaped.” of thick marine-grade resin (clearly not done by the hands that had performed the original glass work), there did not appear to be any dings. Searching the deck, I spotted a logo under the grimy wax and scraped it clean, revealing a hand-drawn circle with five interlocking forearms and hands grasping wrists: the symbol of the infamous Brotherhood of Eternal Love, based in Laguna Canyon in the late 60s/early 70s. Under the logo in small, fine-lined handwriting, was the name “Russell.” Deep associations came flooding back to me from early childhood, from before I was old enough to know anything of what The Brotherhood was about, but nevertheless from a time that was steeped in a culture quite different from today. I was born in Laguna Beach in 1969, at the height of Brotherhood fullness, just down

PCH from where that crew was operating. Many books and articles detail their smuggling, the psychedelics and the busts. As I mentioned, when I was a child, much less an infant, I knew nothing of that world. Still, I recall the Rolling Stones album “Exile on Main Street” as the soundtrack of our household. I remember my aunt and uncle’s apartment on a bluff in Costa Mesa, a working oil field out front and the ocean beyond. They had beads on strands hanging in the doorway, everybody was smoking something that kind of smelled like incense but different. My dad, whom I lived with on the weekends, wasn’t into all that; he was a Frank Sinatra man. But he was a good sport when his friend’s son (I’ll call him Kenny), used to call out to him like a lunatic from across the street on Balboa Island. “Bobby!” Kenny once screamed, as if he were hailing another of his stoner buddies, not a grown man of the Korean War era. “Surfed Scotchman’s last night on acid, it was epic!” Kenny shaped his own boards – pintail single fins like the one my neighbor gave her visitor last Sunday. When I started surfing in 1979 (coincidentally, on a 7’11” purple pintail Brotherhood design shaped by Russell and given to me by my very groovy neighbor, whose wife kept her weed in a big Tupperware container and seemed to be perpetually rolling joints, and who had a bumper sticker on his VW van that read, “Happiness is sex and tube rides”), my mother fretted that I would “turn out just like Kenny (last name withheld).” Laguna Beach Brotherhood connections notwithstanding, the Russell shop was in my hometown of Newport, just across from the Newport pier and the surf spot called Blackie’s. A sail loft and naval architects’ offices were behind the shop, remnants of old Newport when people lived there for the water, for the sailing and the fishing. We used to hang out at the shop with the manager, Steve Means, and while for me Robert “Russell” Brown was an enigma, a mere name behind exquisite boards made for big and perfect tubes, virtually all of the older Newport crew knew him and were dedicated to riding his crafts. So, I told the young man who was getting the surfboard about the board’s provenance – about The Brotherhood, Russell’s impeccable shaping and lami-

Growing up surfing, The Brotherhood was an important cultural marker for the author. nating skills, the big and perfect waves of Petacalco and Puerto Escondido that it was designed for. He told me he was hard on surfboards and that he’d broken three of them in, from what I gathered, in what was not a very lengthy surfing career. I pictured ass-over-teakettle lip launches in pounding shore break somewhere, this beautiful piece of surf lore and skill destroyed by a neophyte. He mentioned he’d gotten his surfboards on Craigslist and I said, “this ain’t that,” emphasizing again the board’s inherent value in pure aesthetics and craftsmanship, and the possibility of its monetary value in the collector’s market as well, now that Russell is gone. He understood what I was saying, and said that he didn’t plan on riding it. It’s a beautiful board, inextricably connected to and representative of the counter-culture. And perhaps The Brotherhood, and those loose aunties and uncles with their music and their weed, laid the foundation for what’s currently happening. After all, they brought marijuana in, literally, by the boat load (I’ve met and surfed with the skippers in the South Pacific). But it’s corporatized now, produced like some tech commodity for mass consumption, which is not to say that smuggling operations and black-market enterprises are preferable. Culture is what I’m talking about, surfboards or otherwise: small scale, made by and for the people involved. Christian Beamish took leave of his position at Coastal View News in October 2020, to pursue his surfboard business, “Surfboards California,” full time. He continues his monthly column. The former Associate Editor of The Surfer’s Journal, Beamish is also the author of “Voyage of the Cormorant” (Patagonia Books, 2012) about his single-handed expedition down the coast of Baja California by sail and oar in his self-built Shetland Isle beach boat. He lives with his wife and two children in Carpinteria.

San Miguel Island

CVN

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM We were hiking back in the dark, up and over Green Mountain, and then up and over San Miguel Hill, before we trekked back to the ranger station overlooking Cuyler Harbor. My girlfriend Holly Lohuis and I were returning from a full day at Point Bennett, soaking in the sights, sounds and smells, all the drama of thousands of seals and sea lions cavorting, wallowing, nursing, bickering and nuzzling on an elongated, windblown stretch of beach known as the greatest congregation of pinnipeds in the world. There may not be another island in the Channel Islands National Park that makes you feel more alive and faraway from civilization than San Miguel Island. The isle is the furthest to the northwest in the northern chain – the most challenging for Island Packers to land campers on its idyllic shores of Cuyler Harbor – but it’s so worth the little effort required.

Harris Point

It’s arguably the most ruggedly stunning “islandscape” in the northern chain. It’s botanically rich, dense in coyote bush, bush lupine, island morning glory, San Miguel Island buckwheat, dormant giant coreopsis and San Miguel Island liveforevers. The views are epic. There is an incredible overlook of Cuyler Harbor, a beach that appears as if it were a distant shore in the South Pacific. There’s three very good vantage points to take in its crescent moon curvature, it’s steep pearly white, wind-groomed sand dunes and rock-solid Prince Island that lies a half mile offshore to the northeast. That island houses 12 species of hardy seabirds once spring and summer arrive. The last time I led a hike out to Harris Point, the northwest winds were gusting to 50 mph. My nose and eyes watered in the chilly winds while leading four hikers to the overlook. For campers, it might be the only opportunity for them to experience this burly stretch of San Miguel. So, no matter the weather, there’s no question that the hike is on.

Weather

Every time Holly and I have volunteered at San Miguel, the weather more times than not dominates the conversation. It begins and ends on whether Island Packers can get campers to the island, and then land them safely on the beach at

The northwesterly winds can thwart a trip before the boat leaves the Ventura Harbor. The swell at Cuyler Harbor can force the crew to land visitors in the westerly corner of the natural harbor, where they might be out of the way of the swell. However, on big days with swell running out of the north, it can close the entire harbor, and no one is touching down on the beach. Once on the island though, both of us are keeping tabs on wind, fog and swell. During that particular hike back from Point Bennett, Holly and I were swallowed up in billowing pea soup fog and howling northwest winds. There was a lot of moisture in the air, and it felt like sideways rain as we quickly hiked up and over Green Mountain and San Miguel Island. Our headlamps burning bright, we finally saw the airstrip as it ran out to the ranger station. We could see eyes reflecting in the trail. Island foxes are a bit shy on San Miguel, unlike their inquisitive cousins on Santa Cruz Island to the east. I radioed in and called it a day – a good, long day that had us experience a little bit of everything weatherwise on the remote islet.

From a Kayak

A trip to San Miguel isn’t complete without kayaking around its 27 miles of craggy coastline. I wouldn’t do that to Holly, but I need it. I need to feel the currents, the undefined swell and swirling, unpredictable winds. Holly has always been good about me searching for a decent weather window out there. I also need to experience all of San Miguel’s natural wonders, mainly

those pinnipeds at Point Bennett, so watching the weather becomes obsessive. The little time I’ve spent at Point Bennett, it appears to me as if there is always foul weather out there of some sort, surrounding that gritty sandspit and its adjacent reefs. Mainly it’s the surf that’s so unpredictable. Reefs are smattered around the entire point, and the challenge is always to find a path through the frothy whitewater. Just before my most recent circumnavigation, I walked out of the ranger station to stiff south winds and fog creeping up and over the island. I wasn’t feeling too confident as I ran down Nidever Canyon to my kayak. However, paddling northwest to Harris Point is always a good indicator of things to come. Once there, I could see all the way beyond Simonton Cove and Castle Rock to the southwest. The south winds had diminished, and I was paddling on. After I found a path inside the reefs at Point Bennett, it was like watching kids at a jungle gym. It’s safe to say that all the sea lion and northern fur seal pups had not seen a kayaker before. They were born in June, and only four-months-old by October, so their unbridled enthusiasm and curiosity was overwhelming. I pulled on top of a canopy of kelp, and the pups swam right up to my kayak. As I backpaddled out of the kelp, the pups followed until I was outside of Adams

Light, variable winds and wispy clouds kept me cool, and pinnipeds and seabirds kept me company around the most far-flung islet in the Channel Islands National Park.

Modern hotel comes to Carpinteria

When The Palms sprung up on the corner of Linden Avenue and 7th Street in 1912, it was the pride of Carpinteria. A Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce publication highlights the brand new 18-room hotel’s “modern conveniences,” including hot and cold water in every room. Orginally the site housed the White Sulphur Springs Hotel which was destroyed by fire in 1894. The Palms building also housed the community’s first bank, Carpinteria Commercial and Savings Bank, and a post office in addition to the hotel. The Palms proved to be a popular stopover for travelers who came to town via the new Causeway built by the railroad. An advertisement for the establishment stated, “The rooms are perfectly ventilated, and contain hot and cold water from an artesian well on the grounds.” The palm trees on Linden Avenue between 7th and 8th streets, planted in the late 1800s, are a desert fan palm, Washingtonia Filifera, sometimes call a California fan palm. In 1977, they were designated Carpinteria City Landmark #2. As the palm trees grew the building underwent many changes. The poplularity of motor courts forced the hotel portion of the building to give way to the dining hall. For the last 70 years, the hotel-turned-restaurant has operated under the three generations of the Anderson family. Augusta and Beata Anderson owned it for several years before passing it down to their son Ken Anderson and his wife, Sue, in 1968. Their sons, Bill and Todd, took over when their parents

The 2021 CIF Champions: Carpinteria boys water polo returns to campus to celebrate a 12-9 victory over Burbank in the finals.

Warriors win it all: 2021 CIF WATER POLO CHAMPIONS PHOTOS AND WORDS BY RYAN P. CRUZ

Carpinteria High School’s boys water polo team wrapped up a spectacular season in the pool with two final wins against Downey and Burbank to clinch the school’s first-ever CIF Championship in the sport. The journey began in late August, when Carpinteria’s athletic director Pat Cooney said he had high hopes for the squad and its nine seniors – predicting a deep run into the playoffs. The team started out on fire, winning seven straight and 15 out of their first 17 games. The Warriors only lost back-to-back games one time – during a Saturday tournament on Oct. 9 – and since that day, they have rolled through eight victories in a row and lived up to their #1 CIF ranking to claim the Southern Section title. “The team understood everyone had a role, everyone had to play selflessly, or we would not succeed,” said coach Jon Otsuki. “As those concepts were accepted, the very important foundation of trust was built.” Carpinteria’s teamwork on both sides stunned many opponents this season, as the onslaught of goals poured in from almost every position, and the lockdown defense stifled teams each game. Only two opponents scored more than 10 goals against the Warriors all season. In the semifinal game against Downey,

a standing-room only crowd watched the teams battle it out at Santa Barbara High School. Warrior spirit showed up strong, and the crowd exploded when Justin Main started the game with three first-quarter goals to jump out to a 4-2 lead. Main’s hat trick included a deep seven-meter arcing lob and an aggressive cross-cage shot that got the Warriors a lead that they would never give up on the way to a 13-9 victory. Despite Downey double-teaming the Warriors’ star sophomore Asher Smith, Carpinteria was able to adust and Smith was still able to lead the team with four goals in the game. The Warriors created opportunities by setting screens, moving the ball well on the perimeter and finding openings by driving, Otsuki said. In addition to Smith and Main’s seven combined goals, Zach Isaac added a pair; and four more Warriors – Coby Gonzales, Reyn Clayton, Mateo Handall, and even goalie Jacob Taff – scored on the day. The win set up a CIF Division 5 Final between #1 Carpinteria and #2 Burbank at Woollett Aquatic Complex in Irvine. The Warriors 3-hour bus ride in the 92-degree weather did not crack their focus, but the team was more serious headed into this match than any other this year.

“It was a bit concerning as the team usually maintains a loose attitude, but today was different,” Otsuki said. “They were not tense or overly anxious, but they were focused and poised for the competition.” Both teams had two stars to watch – Smith for Carpinteria, who has scored 112 goals this season including 26 in the playoffs alone, and Johnny Agazaryan for Burbank. Coaches Otsuki and Stephen Kim both planned to focus on Agazaryan, but even so he was able to fight through a triple-team and notch three out of Burbank’s first five goals. After coming out of halftime tied at 6-6, Smith took over and got into rhythm, scoring three quick goals. Clayton scored on an exciting counter-attack spin move around the goalie to swim in for the goal that lit up the Carpinteria fanbase and gained momentum for the rest of the game. After outscoring Burbank 4-1 in the third quarter, the Warriors continued to apply pressure and would not let their guard down, holding on for a 12-9 final

victory and sealing the deal on a magical CIF Championship season. Smith tallied seven goals in the finals, while Main and Handall each scored a pair. Goalie Jacob Taff proved once again to be a rock for the team on defense, especially on a momentum changing block in the final game. “People speak or read about goals scored but the Warriors’ run to the CIF title would not have been possible without the goalie play of Jacob Taff,” Otsuki said. There were many firsts for this team, he said – such as defeating many other schools for the first time ever. “However, the only ‘first’ everyone was focused on was this one game, just one chance,” he said. The season also includes some significant “lasts,” he said, for the nine senior members of the squad who have worked four years to build up a core team that would win the title. The Warriors will have an opportunity to play as one of eight teams in the state’s CIF Regional Tournament.

Water polo makes second round of CIF SoCal Tourney

The Warriors’ magical season continued with a first round win in the 2021 CIF SoCal Boys Water Polo Championships tournament. Carpinteria defeated Eagle Rock 18-9 on Tuesday. Carpinteria earned a number one seed in the tournament, and will hold home field advantage as they head into the semifinals at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday against San Dieguito at Carpinteria Community Pool. Coach Jon Otsuki said the win was in “typical Warrior style” with the team jumping out to a fast start and never letting off the throttle. Senior team captain Mateo Handall had two field blocks and two steals along with three goals, while fellow senior Reyn Clayton had a block, two steals and three goals of his own. Sophomore Asher Smith led the team once again with five goals.

The Warriors had three runners qualify to compete at this year’s CIF Cross Country Prelims at Mt. San Antonio College’s tough course with hot weather in Walnut, California. Kate Cooney and Belen Herrera represented the girls for Carpinteria, and freshman Marvin Lujano was the sole athlete from the boys team to qualify. All three competed as individuals in their respective heats. The top finisher for Carpinteria was Lujano, who finished 26th in a field of over 100 athletes. He finished with a time of 17:55. Cooney finished in 42nd with a time of 23:03, followed by Herrera with a time of 26:14. “The kids ran as best as they could given the hot race conditions,” coach Angel Silva said. “It’s a challenge advancing to the finals as an individual. I would like to congratulate them on their season, and the coaches are so proud of them for qualifying for the CIF Prelims.”

Cate Rams headed to CIF 8-man Football Final

Cate’s eight-man football team has continued its bigtime play with a gutsy road win at Sage Hill last Friday, sending the squad to the CIF Championship game this week against Grace Brethren. After a long bus ride to the game, the Rams showed no signs of rust as they recovered a fumble on the second play of the game, setting up a touchdown from senior quarterback Will Bouma to senior receiver Mason Oetgen for a 22-yard score. Bouma and Oetgen would connect again in the first quarter for a 54-yard score, sending the game into halftime with a 13-7 lead. Cate had averaged more than 40 points a game this season but in the playoffs it turned out to be a strong defense that would be necessary to advance. “Both defenses showed their teeth in the second half,” coach Ben Soto said. Sage Hill tied the score at 13-13, then took a fourth quarter lead 13-16 on a field goal with 10 minutes left in the game. With their backs against the wall and the season on the line, Cate’s offense found its groove, Soto said, with yet another Bouma-to-Oetgen score to take the lead 21-16. Oetgen would then step up again, this time on defense, picking off a Sage Hill pass with three minutes left. The interception would seal the deal, as Cate kept the ball and ran out the remainder of the clock, punching their ticket to the CIF Championship against Grace Brethren. “It wasn’t our prettiest game but I’m so proud of the heart and fight our team showed, Soto said. “We talk about ‘corazon’ every day in our program, and we showed it last night. This group has earned this historic event for our program, and I’m blessed to be their coach.” Cate and Grace Brethren flipped a coin to decide the host of this week’s CIF Final, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19 at Carpinteria High School. Cate beat Grace Brethren earlier this year when they met for the first game of the season, 50-21.
