A message to the community from the California Avocado Festival Board of Directors Dear fellow Carpinterians, A little more Avo information. A substantial amount of work goes into planning a successful festival, from setting goals, creating the entertainment line-up, establishing the proper merchant and nonprofit participation, securing the workforce, to creating the donor incentives for funding. There are several moving parts of a festival that need to be considered and budgeted to plan a successful event. These include, but are not limited to, fencing/barriers, booth construction, stages, sanitary costs, equipment rentals, entertainment, shuttles, health and safety measures, security, advertising, administration, and permits.

Carpinteria Library opens contest for new library card artwork
The Carpinteria Library invites community members to take a chance at designing the library’s new library cards. The contest is designed for sixth to 12th graders in the area, and artwork can be created using any medium, with the dimensions exactly 4” x 6.5.” Entries are due on Oct. 13 at 5 p.m. All submissions should be submitted in a high-resolution format to https://forms.gle/Fh84rYKAbD62UTVk7, and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. All Carpinteria Library users will receive new library cards on July 1, 2022.
The 2021 one-day event would only allow 3,000 people to enjoy the festival at a cost of approximately $120,000 to put on. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions and limited capacity the festival would have a total revenue of $70,000. To remain a successful festival, the California Avocado Festival could not absorb a $50,000 loss. The board of the California Avocado Festival is committed to keeping the community at the center of the festival and will continue to support local charities and distribute academic scholarships. In order to make future festivals possible and maintain our current donations, we will be hosting various fundraisers. The first of these will be a screening of the comedy/ parody Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death Saturday October 2 at the Alcazar Theatre. Doors open at 6:30. The show starts at 7:00 pm with a special video tribute to Annette Fisher prior to the movie. We hope you will continue to support the California Avocado Festival and its community-based mission as we continue to look forward to many more years of Peace, Love, and Guacamole.

City attends annual conference for California League of Cities
Last week, Carpinteria Councilmember Natalia Alarcon, Mayor Wade Nomura and City Manager Dave Durflinger attended the California League of Cities annual conference. The three discussed issues facing California cities, and on behalf of the city, Nomura voted on resolutions that will be presented to Governor Gavin Newsom and the state legislature. Nomura voted on a change in sales tax distribution and maintenance issues with the city’s railroad system. Both resolutions were passed by the League of California Cities representatives and will now move onto the state legislature. During the conference, the city representatives also discussed state housing mandates, short-term rentals, water rationing, sea-level rise, diversity, equity and inclusion and more. “Carpinteria has been in the forefront in taking action on a number of items, such as the flavored tobacco ban, the formation of a DEI committee, the Covid Economic Recovery Committee, addressing short term rentals, efficient and sustainable energy measures, environmental safeguards, and addressing aging infrastructure through tax initiatives and grants,” Nomura said. The California League of Cities is made up of 479 cities.
Fire department enlists sheep to help reduce fire hazards
The Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District (CSFD) is hosting sheep from Cuyama Lamb LLC. The Fire Prevention Division has been working to come up with solutions to reduce fire hazards in the district. The grazing animals are located off Ladera Drive on a 40-acre parcel, a designated “very high fire danger” area, according to the state. The animals will reduce the amount of combustible fuel by both grazing and trampling the live and dead vegetation, Robert Rappaport, CSFD fire marshal, said. Funding for the project was provided by a grant received from the California Coastal Commission. Rappaport also said that residents can help reduce fire hazards by creating the proper amount of defensible space and eliminating any combustible material that would impact their home in the event of a wildfire.

Fire Prevention Week coming up
The Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District reminds residents that Fire Prevention Week will take place between Oct. 3 and Oct. 9 this year, centered around the theme of recognizing “the sounds of ﬁre safety.” The week asks residents to memorize the diﬀerent sounds smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make, and what protocols to follow when an alarm goes oﬀ. For a smoke alarm, a set of three loud beeps means there is smoke or a ﬁre and that you should leave your home, and a single “chirp” every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low. All smoke alarms should be replaced after 10 years of use, and if the “chirp” sound still persists after changing a battery, this means the alarm is worn out and needs to be replaced. For carbon monoxide alarms, a set of four loud beeps means that carbon monoxide is present, and that you should leave your home. A single “chirp” every 30 or 60 seconds shows that the battery is low and must be replaced. If the “chirp” continues after the battery has been replaced, the alarm must be replaced.
Sweet Wheel Farms enters escrow
Summerland’s Sweet Wheel Farms, under the Santa Barbara Agricultural Farm and Education Foundation, is now in escrow, founder Leslie Person Ryan conﬁrmed, shortly after the farm was approved for 501c3 non-proﬁt status. Person Ryan said it is “exciting” that the farm is now in escrow, after the Carpinteria Uniﬁed School District accepted a bid of $2.25 million for the property earlier this month. “From the get-go, we had our 501c3 paperwork for a year, but because of Covid, the IRS has been backed up,” Person Ryan said. “We’re basically Summerland’s newest nonproﬁt that is family oriented.” Person Ryan said the next few months are going to focus on closing escrow, team building and formulating a ﬁrm plan for the farm, as well as launching another round of fundraising – this time to help the farm receive needed infrastructure for long-term goals. “(Fundraising is) important for the longevity of the farm,” Person Ryan said. The farm is continuing its anonymous food program, which allows members of the community to anonymously nominate someone who is struggling for free food, as well as its veteran’s food program.

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California
As of Monday, 57.5% of the county is fully vaccinated; 68% of those eligible to be vaccinated are fully vaccinated. Between the week of Sept. 17 – Sept. 23, the county saw 535 new cases of Covid-19 and 429 active cases for a total of 41,574 total cases and 499 total deaths.
County now offers Pfizer Covid-19 booster shots for high-risk populations
As of Friday, Santa Barbara County is offering Covid-19 booster Pfizer shots for high-risk populations, six months after their second dose of Pfizer. This eligibility is available for those who have previously received two Pfizer shots; it is not available for those who received a Moderna or Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine. The CDC states that people older than 65, people between the ages of 50 and 64 with underlying medical conditions and residents of long-term care facilities “should” receive the booster shot. Additionally, the CDC states that people between the ages of 18 and 49 with underlying medical conditions and people between the ages of 18 and 64 who are at “increased risk for Covid-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institution” “may” receive a booster shot. “Booster shots will become an important part of our local strategy to protect our most vulnerable community members
and end the pandemic. Local pharmacies and health care providers are prepared to offer booster doses in your community,” Van Do-Reynoso, County Public Health Director, said in county press release. “We want to encourage those who have yet to receive a first-dose vaccine to know that vaccines are still available to you.” During the week of Sept. 17 – Sept. 23, 535 new Covid-19 cases were reported in the county, for 429 active cases, 41,574 total cases and 499 total deaths. Between Sept. 17 and Sept. 23, there were 52 hospitalizations, with 13 in the ICU, and eight deaths. As of Monday, 68% of those eligible to be vaccinated are fully vaccinated, while 57.5% of the total county population is fully vaccinated. The county is continuing to see higher numbers of Covid-19 cases in unvaccinated people. A look at the week of Sept. 3 and Sept. 9 showed 444 cases of Covid-19 in the unvaccinated population,
Carbajal supports appeal of offshore fracking This week, nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives, including Representative Salud Carbajal, filed a brief in support of appealing the federal government’s decision to allow offshore fracking on California’s Central Coast. Carbajal and the eight other congressmembers – including Rep. Julia Brownley from Ventura County – issued their support for upholding the appeals made by the Environmental Defense Center (EDC) and Santa Barbara Channelkeeper (SBCK), the state of California, and other environmental groups, challenging the federal government agencies’ approval of offshore fracking and acidizing. The brief, which was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, argues that the federal government should have conducted a thorough environmental review before approving such activities. In June 2019, EDC and SBCK appealed to the Ninth Circuit to defend their November 2018 court victory that currently prohibits the use of fracking and acidizing offshore California, and to seek full environmental review of the impacts of these practices on the local environment, including harm to wildlife and air and water quality, stated a press release from Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. Acidizing and fracking are both potentially dangerous oil production
processes involving the injection of large amounts of water and chemicals below the seafloor in order to fracture or dissolve rock. Much of the fracking and acidizing that has been conducted offshore California has been done in the Santa Barbara Channel. The Channel’s biological diversity is so rich that the area has been called “North America’s Galapagos,” and the area harbors numerous threatened and endangered species, including blue, fin and humpback whales, and the southern sea other. The area also includes the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and Park, as well as federal and state Marine Protected Areas. “Santa Barbara knows all too well how devastating an oil spill can be to marine life and to our local economy. In fact, the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill served as a catalyst for the environmentalist movement and led to the creation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). We cannot repeat the mistakes of the past,” Carbajal said. “I am proud to support the Environmental Defense Center’s lawsuit calling on our federal agencies to complete the research necessary to understand the potential impact fracking would have on our ocean and community. Allowing federal agencies to rush through this process would set a dangerous precedent.” The case is scheduled for oral arguments in court on Oct. 18.
compared to 107 cases among people who were vaccinated. The county is also urging residents to get their flu shots, reminding residents that flu activity can “peak December through February and can last until May.” Protection against the flu kicks in two weeks after the vaccination. “Getting a flu vaccine is an essential part of protecting your health and your family’s health. Flu vaccines are not designed to protect against Covid-19. Flu vaccination reduces the risk of flu illness,
hospitalization and death in addition to other important benefits,” the county said in a press release. To learn where to get vaccinated within the county, visit publichealthsbc.org/ vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, find a site at publichealthsbc.org/testing. These sites are only offering the PCR test. 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.

CITY BEAT City plans letter of concern to county over Bailard Housing project
Coastal View News • Tel: (805) 684-4428
Thursday, September 30, 2021 5
BY EVELYN SPENCE City staff have tabled talks with the county housing authority regarding the Bailard Avenue housing project over disagreements concerning city control, City Manager David Durflinger told City Council on Monday night. Durflinger previously provided an update on the matter at a special city and school board meeting held on Sept. 17. The council asked staff to provide direction on writing a letter to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors, expressing the council’s concern on the project. “It’s a little scary that the county knows they have the upper hand, and they’re showing us that they do,” Councilmember Gregg A. Carty said, stating the city staff has already been “aggressive” in their attempts to get the project up to city standards. The property is located at 1001-1003 Bailard Ave. and is owned by the Carpinteria Unified School District. The school district had bought the land in the 1990s with the intent of using it for an elementary school, but the school-aged population growth was not as expected, so the district, in 2019, declared it a surplus property and began the process to sell it. Because the property is located just outside city limits, the city has no control over what is built on the property. The county has proposed a 173-unit apartment complex on the property; the city council has previously expressed concern that the complex would not fit into the long-term plan for the city, would be a detriment to the area due to parking concerns, and would ultimately not fit the affordable housing plans for the area. “There’s this natural tension that exists in this area between the obvious need for housing (...) and all those other priorities of the coastal zone and the community in

He later took on the role of assistant to the city manager in 1999, a position he held until his retirement this year. terms of protecting it,” Durflinger said. “This was a development that was too much for this site (...) and for that reason, we’re recommending that we suspend discussions on the MOU (memorandum of understanding).” Mike Wondolowski provided public comment on the housing matter on behalf of the Carpinteria Valley Association, stating the organization is deeply concerned about the property. “Please take seriously the threat this project poses. It is not only about these seven acres. It is also about setting a bad precedent that could affect lands all along our urban boundary. And the decision to set that precedent would be made by the county of Santa Barbara, not even the city of Carpinteria,” he said.
Concerns raised over previous comments at council meeting
Carpinteria Valley Association president Mike Wondolowski voiced concern to the city council over Councilmember Carty’s comments from a previous meeting regarding one-bedroom, short-term rental cottages off 7th Street. Wondolowski criticized Carty’s decision to state his approval for the cottages prior to public comment. “I found (it) inappropriate for a councilmember to state such a conclusion before listening to input from the public on the topic,” Wondolowski said. He further added that he has filed a complaint with the city’s code compliance division about the cottages, stating that although the cottages are advertised as one-bedroom, short-term rental cottages, there is an above loft area available for sleeping – an “apparent discrepancy” between what was originally permitted and what is now there. “If this property is not in compliance with its permits, it is absolutely not, quote, ‘A perfect example of what a vacation rental should be.’” Carty clarified following Wondolowski’s comment that he has had “no contact” with the owners of that property.
City introduces new hires
The city’s new aquatics superintendent, Amber Workman, introduced herself to the council, inviting the members to come and visit anytime. As aquatics superintendent, Workman will oversee aquatic facilities and programs at the community pool and at city beaches. She holds a master’s in business administration, and has worked in the aquatics field for over two decades. The city also hired a new engineering technician, Jason Dane, who has a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies from UC Santa Barbara, and a master’s degree in environmental engineering from California State University, Fullertson. He previously worked in the private sector. “I’m excited to be working for the city and to be in Amber Workman is a more public service oriented (job) and to bring my the city’s new aquatics superintendent. experience in science and engineering,” he said.
Council honors Kevin Silk for his 26 years at the city
Carpinteria City Council honored retiree Kevin Silk at its regular Monday night meeting, recognizing his 26 years of service to the city. Silk was first hired in 1994 as a part-time management intern for the city. He later took on the role of assistant to the city manager in 1999, a position he held until his retirement this year. “His professionalism and knowledge of the city and community services exemplified his commitment to providing excellent customer service in a very friendly and welcoming way. His fairness and compassion are admired and he will be greatly missed by all,” Mayor Wade Nomura read aloud from the certificate honoring Silk during the meeting. Nomura wished him well on his “much deserved” retirement. He noted that he and Silk had started working for the city around the same time. “It’s always been a pleasure working with you. You’re upbeat and you’ve had a good time,” Nomura said. “Outstanding family, you can tell that everyone comes from good, deep roots. Thank you for all the hard work you’ve done. It is a well-deserved retirement.” All councilmembers took turns praising Silk and his 26 years with the city, as Silk sat in the audience with his family. Councilmember Roy Lee said it has “been an honor and a pleasure to have worked with you in the past.” “You’re an amazing person, and incredibly respected in our community. I look forward to seeing you around town. You and your family are incredibly valuable to our community,” Lee added. Councilmember Carty called Silk “a great guy” and thanked him for his work, saying Silk “had a hand in shaping Carpinteria into the city it is today”; Councilmember Natalia Alarcon also noted that community members “could not say enough great things about (Silk) both personally and professionally.”
Vice Mayor Al Clark congratulated Silk on his retirement and said he had worked with Silk in several capacities. “I had a great time (working with you), but the good news is that we live in the same neighborhood, so I’ll see you all the time,” he joked. City Manager Dave Durflinger called Silk an “integral part of our city team” and “an important part of the organization,” stating he was responsible for the access television program, the city’s communications program, the city’s newsletter, the economic vitality program, and much more. “But I want to talk about Kevin personally. When I started here at the city, it was shortly after that that the council asked me to step into the role of the city manager, and I wasn’t at all sure that I wanted to do it or that I was going to be able to meet the expectations and needs of the council and the community,” Durflinger said. “Kevin was really my right-hand man there to (help) with that steep learning curve and help me a great deal (...) I wouldn’t be here 20 years later without Kevin’s help.” “Kevin taught me that you can do this important work in local government (...) and serve the community while also having fun, and that’s an important lesson.” Silk, who retired earlier this year, has lived with his wife Jan in Carpinteria since 1990. He came up to the podium and thanked the council for their well wishes, and joked that he was going to come up and summarize “year by year” his time at the city. “It’s been a pleasure, and hopefully, I was able to add something to the city and something beneficial in the time that I served, and hopefully, I made some valuable contributions, and I am grateful for the opportunity that was provided to me,” he said. “It’s kind of a city family. I appreciate that (...) and thank you again, Dave.”

Thomas Anapuni Watts 4/30/1957 – 9/22/2021
Tom Watts, a loving ohana (family) man and proud Hawaiian, has died. Cancer took him far sooner than he and his loved ones wanted, but the Lord had other plans. We are comforted knowing we will see him again in the next life and hear his boisterous laugh. Tom was born in Germany in 1957 to Merle and Myra (Kauka) Watts while his dad was in the military. He spent his early years in California, but mainly grew up in Hawaii, his ancestral homeland. He graduated from Kahuku High School on Oahu, Hawaii in 1975, where he especially enjoyed playing football. He continued that sport at West Hills College and at California State University, Hayward. At the latter he met Mary Sullivan, who was a student athletic trainer working with the football team. Their friendship developed into something more and they were married on Feb. 16, 1980, the same year he got his college degree. In September 1980, Mary was hired by UC Santa Barbara as the women’s athletic trainer, and they moved to Goleta. When Mary became pregnant with their first child in 1984, she quit, and Tom became the primary breadwinner. Tom went to Santa Barbara City College to learn auto mechanics; he then worked for many years in Santa Barbara and Goleta as a mechanic working on commission. Due to his dedication and hard work, the family was able to live on his one salary in arguably one of the most expensive areas of the U.S. After that, he decided to open Tom Watts Automotive in Carpinteria, which ran for 17 years with Mary as “office queen.” Since 2017, he has been employed by Ventura County as a senior mechanic. More than anything in life, Tom loved being a dad. After the unplanned delivery of Ivan in 1984 on the bathroom floor, Tom and Mary welcomed Anita in 1987, Martin in 1991, and their special son Ben
in 1994 with home births. Tom was a supporter of all the things their children did: school activities, sporting events, band concerts and more. He loved introducing his kids to the wonders of Hawaii. Tom and Mary were very active in Marriage Encounter for many years, which helped them solidify their good marriage, and become better parents and better people. Tom always said he didn’t have hobbies; his family, and working hard, were his hobbies. His sister said their family was “the hardest working lazy people you’ll ever meet!” But he did put on fabulous luaus, cook a mean steak BBQ, loved trips to the Chumash Casino or Vegas when he could, and stayed active at St. Joseph’s Parish. For years he was the face of the set-up and clean-up up crew for the annual St. Joseph’s Festival. Tom is survived by his wife, Mary, of “forty-wonderful” (41) years, children Ivan (Natalia) of Plano, Texas, Anita (Joel) of Cypress, California, and Martin (Janet) of Thousand Oaks, California and Ben of Carpinteria, California, as well as grandchildren Calvin, Ethan and Michael Thomas of Plano, Texas and a granddaughter arriving January 2022. He is also survived by siblings Reilee (Bill) Corley, Michael (Carol) Watts, Lisa (David) Goodrich and George Watts. He is also loved and remembered by many other relatives and in-laws, especially his nieces and nephews, who loved their fun “Uncle Tom.” He was preceded in death by his parents Merle Watts and Myra Kauka Watts, and stepmother Loretta Watts. Through many rounds of chemo and cancer, including three surgeries during almost three years, Tom remained strong and uncomplaining through the ordeal. He has been an inspiration to all. His booming laugh may be silenced, but he lives on in our hearts. Big man, big heart, big soul! “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7. Services for Tom, Rosary will take place on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021 at 7 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Chapel, located on 7th Street at corner of Ash Street in Carpinteria. Parking is limited. The Mass of Christian Burial will take place Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. at St. Joseph Church at 1500 Linden Ave. in Carpinteria. A private interment at a later date will be held at Ivy Lawn Cemetery in Ventura. Donations can be made in his memory to St. Joseph’s Church in Carpinteria, Special Olympics in Santa Barbara, or the Ridley – Tree Cancer Center in Santa Barbara. Mahalo and Aloha. Arrangements are entrusted to McDermott-Crockett Mortuary, at mcdermottcrockett.com.

The American Dream CVN
THE LAY OF THE LAND MIKE WONDOLOWSKI Here’s a question for you: What comes to mind when you hear the term “the American dream”? Most people would answer with something related to upward mobility and “success” achieved by hard work, determination and sacrifice, no matter where a person was born or their family’s financial situation. Indeed, a typical picture of the American dream being achieved is a single-family home – the bigger the better – with a white picket fence in front. The story is even better if the owner has a rags-toriches story, succeeding against all odds. History provides an interesting perspective. It was not until after World War II that this became the prevailing understanding of the American dream, assisted in good part by the tremendous success of the GI Bill. However, the historian James Truslow Adams, who popularized the phrase “American dream” in 1931, had a remarkably different perspective on what the term had meant in America up to that point. He wrote it was “not a dream of motorcars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position.” In other words, the American dream was about the benefit to all of society that results from the inherent fairness of all people having adequate opportunity, not the goal of the individual proving “success” with wealth, a nice house and fancy toys. Consider the part of the definition that says, “no matter where a person was born or their family’s financial situation.” This suggests that someone who happens to be born into a poor family in a tough neighborhood with limited opportunities can work hard and escape the vicious cycle of poverty to be successful. Now think about the other side of the coin: What about someone born into a well-off family living in a highly desirable neighborhood with plenty of opportunities. Does the American dream suggest they should have an inherent advantage? No. It effectively says they need to demonstrate a comparable level of hard work, determination and sacrifice to be successful. Let me revisit the topic of my column last month: “My kids won’t be able to afford to live here.” The essence of the American dream is that nobody has the guarantee of anything except the opportunity to earn their place. How can someone earn their place? A starting point is to recognize that as
“We must work as hard as our parents did and save like our parents did to have a chance to get to where they did.”
young adults we do not automatically pick up where our parents are after their lifetime of effort. We must work as hard as our parents did and save like our parents did to have a chance to get to where they did. The first place a young adult lives on their own is unlikely to be a five-bedroom two-story house with a large yard and that white picket fence. Our parents likely did not start there either. A complicating factor is that housing units themselves – houses, condos and even apartments – have become super-sized along with fast food portions. This is a result of community planning decisions that financially benefit some people in the short term, but end up hurting the community in the long run. Why have previous generations been so successful in achieving their vision of the American dream? The single biggest reason is that the value of houses has gone up much faster than inflation (and wages). That’s great if you already own your home. Another reason is that in the past, it was more difficult to pull equity out of your house to spend on other things, and there was less overt pressure by our society to engage in irresponsible consumerism with the resulting consumer debt. But we can’t have it both ways – we can’t have the house we bought appreciate more than inflation and expect our kids to be able to buy in when they grow up. So where does that leave us? At a community level, we need to make planning decisions that are best for the long term with an eye on the type of housing we build, where we build it, what we allocate for tourists rather than residents and the type of jobs we create. At an individual level, each person must consider how they will prepare for their future. What type of jobs will be available? What type of jobs will provide adequate income? What education and preparation are required for those jobs? We’ll dig deeper into these topics in upcoming columns as we continue to explore the complexities around “My kids won’t be able to afford to live here.” Mike Wondolowski is president of the Carpinteria Valley Association (CarpinteriaValleyAssociation.org), a local organization dedicated to maintaining the small beach town nature of our community. In his 30 years of involvement in planning issues, he has witnessed visionary successes, as well as decisions that were later widely regretted. When not stuck indoors, he can often be found enjoying Carpinteria’s treasures including kayaking and snorkeling along the coast, running or hiking on the bluffs or the Franklin Trail, or “vacationing” as a tent camper at the State Beach.

“Our schools are our most valuable community development agency – be part of our team. We need you!”
Schools need substitutes
We do not have enough substitutes to cover our teacher’s absences. Over the past ﬁve days, I have given up my preparation period every day to cover the absences of my colleagues. Several days the vice principal and the principal have covered absences as there were not enough teachers with prep periods to cover the classes. One day, the district director of human resources herself came to the campus and substituted for one of our classes. Our administrators need to be engaged in administration; we teachers need our prep time to complete the myriad little tasks we do that can only be done outside of class. If you have a university degree and meet the basic requirements, please, please, please, contribute to our community and make good money at the same time! We have raised the daily pay rate to $150, and long-term rate to $200 per day. Please go to the Human Resources page on cusd.net for an application or drop by the district oﬃce next to Canalino Elementary for assistance in the application process. The students at Carpinteria High School are nice and welcoming, and our teachers and administrators are organized and supportive. We require students to wear masks indoors, a signiﬁcant percentage have been vaccinated and we follow all county public health Covid-19 protocols. Our schools are our most valuable community development agency – be part of our team. We need you!

No conﬁdence in Biden/Harris
After months of attempting to gain an appreciation for the Biden/Harris administration, I’ve reluctantly conceded that my eﬀorts represent a lost cause. As much as I dislike writing this, I have concluded that President Biden and Vice President Harris represent a serious problem for our wonderful country. Among many other things, the human disasters existing in Afghanistan and Del
Rio, Texas are entirely Biden-caused. I would have to greatly exceed the understandable 300-word Coastal View News limit to elaborate on these and other totally-avoidable disasters, so I won’t attempt to do so. Here’s what finally turned me off to Biden/Harris: Due process seems a totally foreign concept to them. A photo showing a Border Patrol agent on horseback supposedly “whipping” Haitian immigrants at Del Rio, Texas turned out to be nothing more than a rider using bridle reins to control his horse. No whipping occurred, but Biden and Harris, neither of whom have been to Del Rio and obviously anxious to divert attention from the fact that this is a human disaster of their own making, jumped on the opportunity to condemn the Border Control. In referring to the Border Control, Biden said, “I promise you these people will pay.” He also prohibited the Border Control from using horses. Harris compared the incident to “that used against African Americans during times of slavery.” The photographer who took the photos said no migrants were being whipped and that the photos were misconstrued. No apology from Biden or Harris has been issued. A video of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki denying prejudgment is tragically humorous, as is her explanation as to why potentially Covid-carrying immigrants are being released into the U.S. This is America. I genuinely hope that someone can boost my conﬁdence as it relates to Biden/Harris.

Protect our power grid
We must do more to strengthen our power grid against an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event. Such an event can result from an attack by terrorists or by another country or it can occur naturally. It could result in devastating loss of life. There is disagreement on this, but why take chances? We should also have a ground-based GPS back-up system (like Russia has) or we could lose internet at the least in an anti-satellite attack.

Coffee with a purpose CVN
COFFEE, CAREER AND KIDDOS T E R E S A A LVA R E Z “Why is that person different?” is the question that can cause parents to freeze up, especially when kids ask in a public place. Kids always speak their minds; I know my son does… and usually at the top of his voice. Most of the time, I can reply to his comments with a wise statement, and other times, he stumps me. I can think of a few examples of this,
and both are related to why people looked the way they did; once, because the person was in a wheelchair, and the other because of the color of their skin. Both times, I worried I wasn’t saying the right thing, but I know that I want my children to grow up accepting and respectful of people’s differences and celebrate those differences because they make us who we are. I want this for my children and the children in our care at the Carpinteria Children’s Project. As an organization, we work to provide a space to talk about topics affecting our community and the world around us. This past week, our entire staff had the opportunity to start a conversation about race, belonging and empathy. James Joyce of “Coffee with a Black Guy” (CWABG) joined us for our staff meeting – look him up if you haven’t heard of him already. For 60 minutes, we listened, asked questions and of course, sipped coffee. While Joyce began the conversation by talking about the origins of CWABG and
“Both times my life was immersed in darkness and the healing angels of Hospice transformed that darkness, illuminating the path ahead one step at a time,” Sinclair, author of “My Wild and Precious Life,” said. Sinclair will be the keynote speaker at Compassionate Care of Carpinteria’s upcoming event. The Light Shines Ahead is hosted by Winn VanWingerden and Ed VanWingerden and is the annual fundraiser for CCC, an initiative of Hospice of Santa Barbara. CCC offers programs and services, completely free of charge, to anyone in Carpinteria grieving the loss of a loved one or struggling with a life-threatening illness. All CCC services are offered free of charge in English and Spanish through-
out Carpinteria. Compassionate Care of Carpinteria provides services to adults, children and seniors who are facing life-threatening illnesses or grieving the death of a loved one. To learn more and register for the free event, visit: compassionatecareofcarpinteria.org. Sinclair has pledged 25% of proceeds from the sale of her book on the day of the event to Hospice of Santa Barbara.
his life as a Black man in Santa Barbara, he quickly moved to conversation. Staff had the opportunity to ask difficult questions and be vulnerable – in some cases, these conversations hadn’t happened in a long time, or ever. Conversations about race are never easy and, at times, can be uncomfortable. They are necessary, and as Joyce teaches, they close the empathy gap. As a staff, we want to introduce our children to people from races, cultures and abilities different from theirs. One meeting is never enough, but it is a start. As parents and caregivers, we want our children and community to respect and honor differences and empathize with people with all kinds of life experiences. One of my favorite resources for children is Making Caring Common (mcc.gse.harvard.edu), which offers simple ways to practice empathy and build the skill set for engaging with others. Part of what we can model is children’s innate willingness to learn about people around them. Who might you get to know today? What stories might you read with your children that expand
their horizons? Need a place to meet a new neighbor? CCP has many fall classes and family field trips planned. Together, we can build a strong community by celebrating our uniqueness and still working in unified ways. At Carpinteria Children’s Project, it is our honor to be a space where people connect, learn and grow together and from each other. Teresa Alvarez is the executive director of the Carpinteria Children’s Project. She has over a decade of experience in the nonprofit field and a passion for helping children and families. Teresa was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and moved to the U.S. with her parents at age two. Growing up as an undocumented student, she learned the importance of having mentors, a strong work ethic and the value of education. Teresa holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from UCSB and a master’s degree in Psychology from Antioch Santa Barbara. She currently serves on the First 5 Santa Barbara Commission, is the Board Chair for Future Leaders of America, and a founding member of the Santa Barbara Latino Giving Circle. Teresa loves to travel, read and chase after her two boys.

Awana Club resumes meetings, welcomes families
The Awana Club, run through the Carpinteria Valley Baptist Church, is starting up again. The club is now holding regular meetings on Thursdays between 6:30 p.m. and 8:15 p.m., Pastor James Reinebach said. Nationally, the club has been around since the 1950s, and provides families and children with a way to become immersed in Bible learning. The club is divided between grades K–2 and grades 3–6. “It’s a way for children to have fun and do Bible memorization,” Reinebach said. “It’s a bit like scouts. They have a workbook, and they get awards for going through the workbook.” Reinebach said the time is split in threes: council time, which involves going through the workbook, Bible memory time and game time, the latter of which the pastor said the kids love to tackle. Reinebach said that prior church participation by the family is not necessary for children to join the club, and that any families interested should contact him at (760) 524-7401 or email@example.com. “It’s a good program; flexible parents really enjoy it,” he said. “We’re helping families to help their children learn basics of the Bible, we’re not here to change families – we realize that’s the families’ SALE PENDING duty to make those decisions, but we’re trying to show children that the Bible tells us basic things.” Attendance for the club itself is free, but a uniform and workbook will cost $30, Reinebach said. Parents struggling to meet these costs should reach out to him.

Environmental program manager speaks to Rotary Noon
Last week, Rotary Club of Carpinteria Noon welcomed the city’s environmental program manager, Erin Maker, who went over sea-level rise and building shoreline alternatives, among other topics. Her talk focused on the city’s Dune and Shoreline Management Plan, which tackles infrastructure on the shoreline and on land and helps protect structures from coastal hazards. For more information about the plan, Maker can be reached at erinm@ ci.carpinteria.ca.us.
Rotary Club Morning welcomes Toastmasters Club
The Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning hosted a visit by the Toastmasters Club last week, a club for people over the age of 18 who seek to improve their public speaking skills. The club aims to help residents overcome communication issues, and members shared experiences about public speaking during the talk. The club meets every third Wednesday of each month over Zoom, between 6 p.m and 7:30 p.m., with the next meeting on Oct. 6. It costs $45 every six months; the first meeting is free. The Toastmasters Club can be reached at carpinteriatoastmasters. wordpress.com.

School teachers learn lessons for teaching writing CVN
4. Readers need long stretches of time to read, and writers need extended opportunities to write;
SUPERINTENDENT’S DESK DIANA RIGBY CUSD SUPERINTENDENT
Elementary Writing Program
Elementary teachers have participated in week-long coaching with Literacy Partners to implement the Lucy Calkins Units of Study. The following key points are reflected in this writing program: 1. Above all, good teachers matter. Learners need teachers who demonstrate what it means to live richly literate lives, wearing a love of reading and writing on their sleeves; 2. Students need a balanced approach to English/language arts, one that includes a responsive approach to the teaching of both reading and writing. Researchers have studied examples of exemplary literacy instruction. In every case, when they found a classroom with high literacy engagement, they found balanced teaching in place; 3. Reading and writing need to be taught like other basic skills, with direct, explicit instruction – including spelling, conventions and the skills and strategies of proficient reading and writing;
5. Writers need to learn to use the writing process: rehearsing, drafting, revising, editing and publishing their writing. Readers need opportunities to consolidate skills so they can use skills and strategies with automaticity within fluid, engaged reading; 6. Writers deserve to write for real, to write the kinds of texts that they see in the world, and to write to put meaning onto the page. Readers need opportunities to read high-interest, accessible books of their own choosing; 7. Readers and writers need teachers to read aloud to them; 8. Students need opportunities to talk and sometimes to write in response to texts; 9. Readers need to read increasingly complex texts appropriate for their grade level and they need support reading nonfiction and building a knowledge base and academic vocabulary through information reading; 10. Learners need clear goals and frequent feedback tailored specifically to them. They need to hear ways their reading and writing is getting better and to know what their next steps might be.
During the first five weeks of school, seven elementary students and three vaccinated staff reported positive Covid-19 cases.
“Writers deserve to write for real, to write the kinds of texts that they see in the world, and to write to put meaning onto the page. Readers need opportunities to read high-interest, accessible books of their own choosing.” Staffing
Currently, we are struggling to hire substitute teachers as well as classified employees. In a typical year, we have 30–40 daily substitute teachers available; this year, we have eight. We have raised the daily and long-term rates, and aggressively recruited locally in both Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. We continue to have open positions for instructional assistants, library media tech and cafeteria workers.
The Summerland groundbreaking ceremony took place on Saturday, Sept. 18, and we have finalized all the construction documents to proceed. Demolition of the former school will begin next week. Foundation work is beginning for the CUSD administration building with the cement pour scheduled for Sept. 30. The Measure U team and architect are working on the DSA plans for the summer projects at Main and Canalino schools.
Carp-a-Cabana will be held outdoors, in the quad, at Carpinteria High School on Saturday, Oct. 23. This year, CEF is stepping out of tradition and hosting an adult Halloween-themed event. At Carp-a-CaBOOna, costumes are encouraged! The event will be catered by Omni Catering (Teddy’s by the Sea) and will feature a hosted bar and live and silent auctions. The CEF Board of Directors will require proof of vaccine at the door for entry to the event. The event will honor our community partners, Westerlay Orchids, who will once again host a week-long showroom sale with 100% of the profits going to CEF to support our students.
I would like to recognize our new district nurses, Travis Revicki and Dawn Anderson, for working closely with staff and parents to implement the California Department of Public Health requirements for managing Covid-19 at school sites. 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.

School district faces dearth of substitute teachers BY EVELYN SPENCE
The Carpinteria Unified School District is struggling with a substitute teacher shortage, Superintendent Diana Rigby confirmed. Rigby said the district typically has 30 or 40 available substitutes; currently, the district has eight, a fact Rigby attributed to Covid-19. But Carpinteria is far from the only school district to struggle with a substitute teacher shortage due to the Covid-19 pandemic. One article from CalMatters showed that the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing had issued 47,000 substitute teaching permits across the state for 2020-21, compared to 64,000 during the 2018-19 school year, with several district representatives stating that it isn’t a monetary problem – it’s a personnel shortage one. “We’re not unique in this situation. Across the country, across the nation, the state and the country, all school districts are struggling to fill positions,” Rigby said. She explained that the district started recruiting for certified positions last February but have been unable to fill the substitute teacher slots needed. The district has been “aggressively” recruiting for substitute teachers over the past six months, Rigby said. In July, the district increased substitute teacher rates to $150 for a day-to-day substitute teacher, and $200 for a long-term substitute, but has still been left with a shortage. Rigby encouraged eligible community members to take a look at the CUSD human resources website, cusd.net/ departments/employment, to see if they
are eligible and willing to be a substitute. The district is accepting applications and resumes for all substitute classified positions. Requirements to obtain an emergency substitute teaching credential include a bachelor’s degree; a fingerprint clearance; and passing the California Basic Educational Skills test, per the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. “I want the community to sign up to be a substitute teacher,” she said. “There’s a lot of wonderfully skilled retirees that would love to spend a day in the classroom with children, and we’d love to have them.” “Our students deserve the very best, so we need to fill those positions.” Ahead of the 2021-2022 school year, the district hired more than 30 new staff members – teachers, nurses and a new principal – for its campuses, but is still looking for instructional assistants, library media techs and cafeteria workers. Beyond substitutes, Rigby said the 2021-2022 school year – now in its sixth week – has “started off famously (…) students are thrilled to be back, teachers are working really hard to support
Across the CUSD district, campuses are struggling to find substitutes teachers to fill much needed positions.

students in their academic progress. It’s going great.” The district has seen three Covid-19 breakthrough cases in vaccinated staff and seven student cases across its campuses since the 2021-2022 school year began. “We’ve been able to minimize Covid-19 transmissions. We had three vaccinated staff breakthrough cases,” Rigby said. “About 90% of our staff are vaccinated, and the 32 that are not are tested every week in our district office.”

Calkins steps down from position at arts center
BY EVELYN SPENCE
The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center’s operations manager, Kristina Calkins, has announced that she will be leaving her position at the center to pursue a master’s degree. Calkins called her time at the arts center the “highlight of her career” and celebrated all the programs she was involved with – but said what she will remember most of all is the people that she met, and the lives that she was able to shape. “(I was) able to be a part of the organization that brought the whole community together,” she said. She recalled fondly watching the center’s volunteer base grow along with the community’s appreciation for the center. Calkins also launched a teen leadership program and grew the center’s summer camp, programs she said she was very proud of. “I love seeing our volunteers call the Carpinteria Arts Center home. There’s a lot of pride and ownership of it,” she said. During her time at the center, Calkins was faced with the diﬃcult task of connecting the community during the Covid-19 pandemic and sought ways to help keep the community together during
the treacherous time. She said the center came up with new projects – such as handing out yard signs that community members could decorate, and “inspire their neighbors knowing that we’re all in this together” – and modifying old ones, such as the tradition of the teen mural, allowing teens to craft their sections at home. The center also held virtual happy hours, events that Calkins looked proudly on. “(We) gave time for people in the community to be able to join through Zoom, hosting diﬀerent poets, writers,” she said. “I’m proud to say that it meant a lot to quite a few people, to quite a few elderly people that were living alone, and that was very meaningful.” Center volunteer Connie Geston will take on Calkins’ position as the new operations manager. Geston has been volunteering at the center for the past two and a half years and has previous experience as a facilitator in event planning and production. Calkins praised Geston’s work at the center, and said that Geston “has the heart for it.” “I told her, it’s all about building relationships, and keeping the door open for everyone, inviting everyone to come and be a part of it,” Calkins said.
Kristina Calkins, right, helped adapt the teen mural project in a pandemic world, allowing teen artists such as Zachary King, left, to work on the project safely.

The annual Evening in Bloom benefit gala with a period theme honored longtime volunteers Diana and Clyde Freeman for their dedicated service and celebrated the club’s 50th anniversary. Dressed to the nines, attendees swarmed the auction and gaming tables, putting in their bids and playing their luck with cards, raising money for girls and all that jazz. “We are grateful to the community for coming out and supporting our mission in honor of Diana and Clyde Freeman for their years of service.

The Happy Little Loaf is a delivery service of ready-to-bake dough made with organic ingredients.
Carpinteria’s first dough-ery CVN
MADE IN CARPINTERIA
Fresh baked without the fuss is what Levin and Giacopuzzi are offering with their new dough delivery business.
B R E N D A TA N The idea for Carpinterian Michael Levin’s new business, The Happy Little Loaf, was formed while Levin was traveling in Europe early last year. As Covid-19 pandemic restrictions were increasing worldwide last spring, Levin was in Barcelona, where bakeries and markets were the only places still open. “Bread became the focus of my day,” Levin said. Levin said during lockdown in Spain there was not much to do except visit the local bakeries, which quickly became the highlight of his trip. When Levin moved to Carpinteria at the beginning of last year, he said he felt like there was something lacking in the bread and bakery experience in the area. He missed the fresh baked bread he had experienced in Europe. “They got me really excited about bread, and when I came back, I really missed that,” he said. On a trip to the grocery store to buy a can of Pilsbury ready-made dough, he realized that he could make a better product. “I’m not going to bash on them of course,” Levin joked. “People love them, but they’re not exactly the best quality. I realized there was more that can be done here. People like those cans of dough. They like pulling out the dough and baking it. The whole experience is desirable, so why not do it with high quality ingredients and fresh dough?” This realization would inspire Levin to start The Happy Little Loaf in March 2021. He wanted to provide customers with ready-to-bake bread so that they could have a more sensorial experience with the bread. “Dough is very tactile and soft,” he
Michael Levin, pictured, started the company, The Happy Little Loaf, with his best friend Jacopo Giacopuzzi. said. “You put it into the oven, and it transforms from this soft lump. It develops a crust, and it blooms and it fills the house with a delicious smell that often brings back fond memories. That kind of experience brings people together in the kitchen.” Levin also stressed that baking the dough yourself allows it to be as fresh as possible. “Bread starts going stale within 20 to 30 minutes out of the oven, and it’s never better than it is at that moment,” Levin said. “For some breads, it’s significantly better when you pull it hot out of the oven – like French bread. When it’s still hot, you can crack open the brittle crust and it shatters and there is steam coming out of the bread – that is an amazing and

rich experience.” Levin sees The Happy Little Loaf as a dough-ery, which makes bread, pastry and cookie dough with high-quality organic and American brand ingredients. Each week, The Happy Little Loaf offers a feature box with doughs for bread, pastries and cookies. Varieties change weekly and include Italian, French, American and Latin American styles. “There are things we make that you just can’t get anywhere else in Santa Barbara,” Levin said. “One time we made Miso buttermilk biscuits for our Japanese style mystery box – you just can’t find those in the area.” The Happy Little Loaf is just getting started, Levin said. For now, the team

consists of Levin and Jacopo Giacopuzzi, Levin’s Italian best friend and business partner who brought with him valuable family recipes for pizzas, breadsticks and Focaccia bread. They prepare their products in a commercial kitchen in Goleta. “For me, the most motivating part of starting The Happy Little Loaf is seeing happy customers,” Levin said. “We do all the delivering ourselves and often have really nice, direct interactions with customers. There is this one amazing customer, Kelly, who left us a little note with a doodle of our logo. She told us that when she made the dough, it was one of the rare times they could get their daughter and her daughter’s friends to put down their phones for half an hour.” “Kids really do respond to dough. It’s something fun that they can do with their parents, and it’s something that can bring a family closer together.” To learn more about The Happy Little Loaf, visit thehappylittleloaf.com.

The customer always wins at Esau’s Café and Joe’s Cafe in Santa Barbara) replied when we asked him if we should buy Esau’s, ‘Do you want to do this for life?’” Stanley said. “And we said, ‘yes!’” That mindset carries over to their secret for success. “We never think of this as a job. There was never a thought of making a profit and moving on,” Stanley said. “For us, it is a way of life. We love our customers, many of whom have become close friends. We love to be here and make peoples’ days happier with food, coffee and conversation.” What sets Esau’s apart from other businesses is the portions. “(We) don’t sell an empty plate,” Arti said. “People pay for food, not open spaces on their plate.” The beachside restaurant-without-airs has a secret menu that isn’t a secret at all – it’s whatever you fancy that day. “Do what you want with (the menu). And we love dogs and children! Run free and wild!” As for a trade secret, the Stanleys make sure the customers come out the winners in the end. “Always make it from scratch. And if you can’t, buy it from someone who does,” Stanley said. “It costs more for sure, but it’s worth it in the end.” Learn more about Esau’s at esauscafe. com.
TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P Esau’s Café on Linden Avenue is among the few businesses in Carpinteria that has endured the test of time. On their website, they tell the fantastical story of the restaurant’s origin: “The date was April 30, 1939. The place was the Golden Gate International Exposition, also known as the 1939 San Francisco World’s Fair. Working in one of the tents in the food Pavilion was one W.C. Tom Esau, a talented young cook fresh from the Midwest. Visiting the World’s Fair was a prosperous restaurateur from Santa Barbara, looking for fresh ideas to brighten up the small beach town’s cooking scene. The fresh idea he brought back was none other than Tom Esau himself.” Betting it all on a top-secret buttermilk pancake recipe, Tom opened Esau’s Coffee Shop on State Street in 1961, serving hearty portions and free surf reports to all who entered. Current owners and world-traveled surfers, Scott and Arti Stanley, bought the business from the Esau family in 1978. Years later, the Carpinteria location opened in 2003, and is the last Esau’s on the coast opened. “Esau’s is a mix of old school diner and conscious healthy eating. Happiness before trendy fads,” Arti said. “It’s got something for everyone from chicken fried steak lovers to tofu scrambles to gluten-free options. We try to have

8 p.m. / Trespassing / 3200 block Via Real
A caller who is renting a home on the Polo Field reported that several people forced their way into her rental home and started yelling and insulting her family. Deputies arrived and contacted six people, who admitted entering the home after they were directed to come look at the damaged caused by the caller. The caller showed cell phone video of the suspects entering the home without permission and were heard and seen yelling at the caller and her family. The husband-suspect fled across the Polo Field and did not return to the scene. A complaint will be forwarded to the DA’s ofﬁce for review.
A woman and man were contacted as their vehicle was getting dropped off by a tow truck. The woman is on active probation and a search of her property showed she had meth, a meth pipe and a container of pepper spray. She is a convicted felon and prohibited from owning pepper spray. A baggie of meth was found in the center console and since no one wanted to claim it, the man was given ownership since it was his vehicle.
3:38 a.m. / Dope Violations / 4100 block Via Real
A woman and man were in a vehicle with a stolen license plate, reported to Santa Barbara Police Department. A traffic stop was initiated, and it was determined the vehicle was not stolen, but was rented a few weeks ago by the woman. She thought the “PERM” on the Arizona license plate meant it was only a “permit” for the vehicle and not an actual license plate. So, to avoid getting pulled over, they placed a stolen plate on the car, she said. After a search of nearby motel rooms associated with the subjects, they, and the woman’s sister, were cited for possession of stolen property, meth and paraphernalia. Further investigation will be done for the fraudulently obtained EBT cards.

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS
In celebration of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals, parishioners, family and friends and all pet owners are invited to attend St. Joseph’s Blessing of the Animals on Sunday at 2 p.m. The blessing will take place in the field adjacent to the church located at 1500 Linden Ave. Participants are invited to bring their well-behaved pets, including cats, dogs, turtles, fish, guinea pigs and others – to receive a blessing of good health and well-being.

Rincon Legend: George Greenough BY VINCE BURNS ew have had more of an impact on surfing’s technology, art and culture than the “barefoot mad scientist” of Byron Bay, Australia: George Greenough. And although it’s been a while since Greenough has ridden waves at Rincon, for a decade and more he used the Point’s waves to develop and master new designs and techniques that revolutionized both how waves were ridden and how they were recorded on film. Greenough’s full life requires book-length treatment, but for a much-too-brief overview of how his story intersects with our own Rincon Point, read on! Like other early surf icons, Greenough has worn many hats over the years: surfboard and surf mat designer, kneeboard innovator and practitioner, photographer and videographer. In addition, he is a glorious eccentric of the first order. Still going strong, Greenough devotes his time these days to design and focus on water sports from his base in New South Wales. But it was at Rincon Point and surrounding surf spots that Greenough first began to make his contributions to the sport.
Designer and inventor
From a prominent Montecito family, Greenough (b. 1941) began surfing in the 1950s on the long boards of the day
but soon switched to the kneeboard. This stemmed from a desire for speed and to be as close as possible to the wave – videos of Greenough in action on kneeboards often show him lovingly reaching out to touch his wave. In a 1969 photograph by Harold “Wardie” Ward, Greenough is caught mid-wave at Rincon Indicator on a craft of his own creation: a flexible kneeboard with a fiberglass kneeling space and foam edges. The board’s flexibility, spoon shape and size allowed Greenough to perform acrobatics impossible (and unimagined) on the longboards of the day. According to surf historian Matt Warshaw, Greenough’s kneeboard techniques led to the late 1960s shortboard revolution, as designers sought a way to replicate Greenough’s eye-popping maneuvers on a more standard board. The next step for Greenough brought him even closer to the wave: the inflatable surf mat. Californians of a certain age will remember riding canvas mats at places like Corona del Mar in the days before they were superseded by the ubiquitous Boogie board (invented in 1971 by Tom Morey). But Greenough’s mats were and are a far cry from the canvas versions of the 1960s. Still perfecting designs to this day, Greenough has said that even after decades of mat riding, he’s still learning new techniques. Cutting-edge mats these

Beginning in the mid-1960s, Greenough began regularly visiting Australia but still returned to Rincon Point and Hollister Ranch in the winter to surf (an “endless winter” schedule). By then Greenough was innovating with still and video cameras. Not content like most photographers to stand on the beach with a long lens, Greenough wanted to be in the water intimately involved with the wave, whether behind the camera as the artist or in front of it as the subject – or both simultaneously. But venturing into the waves required waterproof gear which Greenough helped pioneer. A Greenough innovation was a waterproof housing for the expensive Nikon cameras like the one Ward used in his photograph. Another innovation: Greenough anticipated the GoPro era by almost 50 years when he became the first to capture an “inside-the-barrel” sequence on video by lugging a 28-pound camera and housing into the waves. The sequence starred in his masterpiece film “The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun” (1970) and was used by Pink Floyd as a backdrop to their own cinematic and musical experiments during the psychedelic era. Another Greenough experiment involved tackling the problem of how to capture night surfing on film. In the late 1960s, Rincon photographer Steve Bissell remembered participating in one of Greenough’s Rincon nighttime projects: filming himself surfing by attaching portable lights and a battery-pack of lights to his
back. The lighting illuminated the entire wave and – as Bissell recalled – must have blown the minds of anyone driving 101 that evening. In another project, Greenough memorialized the Point in his “Rincon ’71” film, which focused on knee boarding. Lots of folks in film and surf are claimed as innovators but with Greenough, it’s the real deal. By viewing wave riding (and practically everything else) differently than most, Greenough was and is wired to innovate. He developed a set of tools and designs to surf the way he wanted. Then he revolutionized surf cinematography by inventing the tools and techniques required to record the action the way he wanted. While the rest of us were enjoying Rincon’s surf and beauty, the barefoot mad scientist was using the place as a laboratory for lasting innovation.

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.

Carpinteria girls tennis rolls through week to #4 CIF ranking BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON
After starting Citrus Coast League play this week, the Warriors girls tennis team is on a roll, winning their first two games and earning a #4 ranking in the latest CIF division polls. “Right now, our whole team is playing well,” coach Charles Bryant said. “We have individuals who have been fairly consistent over the season so far and some others who have really picked up steam and have improved tremendously.” The first league game was a perfect start, with the girls sweeping Santa Paula, 18-0. In singles, Silke Leonard and Neida Garcia went 3-0, with Zahra Pornish adding two wins of her own. Sasha Pornish added to the sweep with another win. “I was really happy with how Neida and Sasha played,” Bryant said. The doubles team of Cassandra Maya Prado and Natalia Perez went 3-0, as did Natalie Martinez with partner Ariana
Lounsbury. Bryant said that doubles play was more aggressive at the net, something he has been pushing in practice. Perez, the team captain, has also become a voice for the Warriors this season. “She is a great leader and has really been the driving force behind our team,” Bryant said. Two days later against Hueneme, the Warriors continued to build on their success, cruising to a 16-2 victory. I was very proud of the girls today,” Bryant said. “We were very sharp from the start, which has been an issue for us sometimes. But today, the girls were focused and determined.” In singles play, Leonard and Zahra Pornish both swept their games, bringing their combined singles record to 11-0 for the week. “Zahra and Silke have definitely been leading us in singles this year, but so has Neida Garcia,” Bryant said. “Her contributions cannot be discounted. She is

picking up quality wins.” Leonard and Pornish are examples of the team fighting back after a rough start to the season, with some tough nonleague matchups that the girls were able to learn from. “Zahra and Silke have grown a lot this season. Both have improved as far as learning the high school game, which is a lot of variety,” Bryant said. “You can have one round against someone who hits hard and moves you off the court and the next round you play a ‘backboard’ who gets everything back.” Bryant has made a point to use the team’s skills where they are most needed and said the girls have responded well to adversity this season. “Certain players are good against certain styles,” he said. “When our singles struggle then our doubles usually fill that gap and lifts the team, and vice versa. They are all working on their games and strokes to be better suited to face and overcome different styles.” The competitive preseason and nonleague matchups were challenging by design, Bryant said, to force the players out of their comfort zones in order to grow and succeed in league play. “We played some very tough competition,” he said. “I never like to take the easy way out and just go for wins. I believe we can learn a lot more against stronger competition and dealing with losses.” Even through the early losses, the Warriors stayed strong. “The girls never dropped their heads. Ever,” Bryant said. “That’s not easy.” Now that Carpinteria is in the top five in CIF Southern Section Division 4, the team will try to build on their new success one game at a time. “I don’t know what the future holds but our girls will battle and compete and that is all I can ask for,” Bryant said. The Warriors are now 6-4 overall, and 2-0 in the Citrus Coast League, with matches this week against Fillmore and Citrus Coast League favorite Malibu – who is currently #3 in the division.

SHORT STOPS Warriors water polo stays on top of CIF with two more wins
Matt Corral will be on the field this Saturday for the Mississippi/Alabama game.
Ole Miss quarterback has Carpinteria roots
Carpinteria’s boys water polo squad has been a force in the pool this season, and cemented its spot at the top of the division CIF rankings with two more wins against Malibu and its first Citrus Coast League opponent Nordhoff. The Warriors traveled to Malibu for a rematch of an earlier win over the Sharks. Carpinteria showed the first matchup was no fluke, beating Malibu 12-7. After a slow start due to the Malibu coaching staff adjusting their defense and forcing the Warriors to make perimeter shots, Carpinteria overcame an early two-goal deficit to go into halftime tied 4-4. “The Warriors began to execute a more efficient driving offense which opened up passing lanes and catch and shoot opportunities,” coach Jon Otsuki said. “Mateo Handall scored two of his three goals in the opening minutes of the third quarter and by the end of the quarter the Warriors had a comfortable 9-6 lead.” Asher Smith led the team with four goals, followed by Handall’s three and a pair of scores from Gavin Lohuis. Goalie Jacob Taff stayed strong with nine blocks on the day. Against Nordhoff, Carpinteria senior Zach Isaac exploded to lead the team with five goals en route to a convincing 15-6 win in their first league game of the season. By halftime, the Warriors had a comfortable five-goal lead and never looked back, Otsuki said. Handall added three goals, while Smith and Reyn Clayton each scored two. Taff had 6 saves in the game. The Warriors travel to Hueneme Thursday for another league game.

Most of you who are college football enthusiasts know that Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) is the alma mater of legendary quarterbacks Archie Manning and his son Eli. But did you know that the current starting quarterback and a leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy at Ole Miss has roots in Carpinteria? Matt Corral, Ole Miss quarterback, is the son of native Carpinterians Peter and Elizabeth “Liz” (Garibay) Corral. Both graduated from Carpinteria High School, Peter in 1985 and Liz in 1987. Liz played volleyball for the Warriors, and Peter played Warrior football. Peter earned the title Most Valuable Defensive lineman on the 1984 team. Peter and Liz were married in 1988 when Peter had just finished the Marine Corps Boot Camp. The two have resided in Ventura since 1995, where they raised their three sons. Joseph, the oldest, graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a major in Romance Languages. David is a Marine Corps veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan. He is married (Jenna) and is attending Ventura College. Prior to the first college game of the season, Matt Corral was a listed as a “dark horse” candidate for the Heisman. Former Heisman winner Robert Griffin III stated, “I’m going with the most
fun to watch gunslinger in all of college football, Matt Corral. I think he’s going to fix his turnovers (…) and he is going to go out and lead Ole Miss to be a serious contender in the College Football Playoff. It’s not a safe pick. It’s not the trendy pick. But this guy’s exciting.” On ESPN’s first College GameDay, Lee Corso predicted Corral will win the trophy. After his great start on a Sunday night game versus Louisville on ESPN, Corral’s outstanding play led to a 43-21 win. His subsequent showing against Austin Peay (54-17 win) was also impressive and he had a record-setting performance against Tulane, where he rushed for four TDs and passed for three scores – a new SEC record. Now, Corral is no longer a dark horse, but the leading candidate for the Heisman. Peter expressed how he was proud of his son. “Under Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffen, Matt blossomed in every way,” he said. “They just connected. Matt is an easy-going kid, pretty laid-back but always competitive. He was always exciting to watch from his early years in youth football to todays’ college games.” On Saturday, Oct. 2, the CBS Game of the Week features Ole Miss versus number one Alabama, led by Bryce Young, another leading candidate for the Heisman.

City receives state funds for oil remediation
On Sept. 27, State Senator Monique Limón and Assemblymember Steve Bennett awarded a $1.05 million check to the city of Carpinteria and the county of Santa Barbara to support oil remediation work. The city of Carpinteria’s $500,000 portion of the state funding will be used to carry out proper abandonment of an oil pipeline that runs east from the Carpinteria Oil & Gas Plant on Dump Road to La Conchita. As an outcome of Venoco Inc.’s 2017 bankruptcy, Chevron has taken responsibility for decommissioning the Carpinteria Oil & Gas Plant, but the pipeline is outside of the plant site and, like many other oil and gas facilities throughout the state, the government will be required to complete the abandonment work. “This funding will ensure that local taxpayers are not burdened with the costs for the abandonment of oil facilities left in limbo by the bankruptcy of a private oil company,” stated Mayor Wade Nomura. “Although indicative of a broader regulatory and policy issue concerning costs and responsibility for decommissioning and abandonment of oil and gas facilities in California, today we can celebrate a success.” “The city of Carpinteria thanks Senator Limón and Assemblymember Bennett for their incredibly important work to ensure the California budget trailer bill included the necessary funding,” a press release from the city of Carpinteria stated.
