At its Oct. 1 meeting, the Carpinteria Planning Commission voiced overall support for a draft cannabis ordinance that would allow commercial testing, manufacturing and distribution in the Industrial Research Park on the east end of Carpinteria, as well as delivery throughout the city. The draft ordinance would prohibit commercial cultivation, retail dispensaries and cannabis events throughout the city. Commissioners directed staff to revise the ordinance draft with consideration to: a) not duplicate existing state regulations but to focus on what is specific and relevant to the city; b) a potential revision to the allowed personal use of six marijuana plants to prohibit outdoor cultivation; and c) a potential cap to the number of cannabis businesses allowed to operate in the Industrial Research Park to allow for other industries, such as medical and tech, to also remain in the area. The Planning Commission will continue its discussion of the draft ordinance at its Nov. 5 meeting after which the City Council will consider recommendations provided by the Planning Commission. Once approved by the Council, the ordinance will require approval by the California Coastal Commission before going into effect. City staff aim to complete that process before the May 2019 close of the city’s existing moratorium on all commercial cannabis activity.

Water District honored for fiduciary excellence

The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the Carpinteria Valley Water District by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management. An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to the individual(s) or department designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the Water District’s award-winning CAFR. The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.

American Riviera Bank volunteers with Habitat for Humanity

On Sept. 15, American Riviera Bank employees volunteered to help build new homes with Habitat for Humanity in Carpinteria. The new homes will house three families, including eight children. The three-bedroom townhomes are for low-income and very low-income residents. “American Riviera Bank is always looking for ways to support the community and partnering with Habitat for Humanity was a perfect fit,” said Deborah Deneault of American Riviera Bank. “This experience not only allowed us to help the community and these amazing families, but it also allowed us to work as a team outside of the bank environment.” The three families moving into the new townhomes are all Santa Barbara-area residents who have been living in less than optimal conditions for their family size and distinct needs. “The strength of our mission is a reflection of the support we receive

Ask the Candidates Carpinteria City Council

Question: Introduce yourself and tell the community why you are running for City Council. Gregg Carty

Carpinteria has a special place in my heart. I grew up here, living in the same neighborhood for over 50 years. I married my wife, Geri, 35 years ago, and we raised our two daughters Angela and Caitlin. Angela is now married and also living in Carpinteria with her husband Josh and our grandchild Leo. We are four generations strong. My children and I were fortunate to go to school here. It was a wonderful and interesting experience, although I always was aware that my father Bill Carty, as the Superintendent of Schools, kept a watch on me. I grew up with an interest in fixing things and took up carpentry as my profession. My brother Martin and I formed Carty Brothers Construction Company, and have built and worked on many homes and buildings in the community. I have specialized in custom carpentry for over 40 years. Carpinteria is our home. I’ve served on our City Council for the past 12 years. It is my goal to see Carpinteria continue to thrive and prosper. I have the experience, vision, fairness and attention to detail that is necessary to be a productive member of our council. I treasure Carpinteria. We’ve been able to preserve its unique beach town beauty while allowing for expansion and economic opportunity. I strongly support all Carpinterians, especially our senior citizens whose needs include affordable housing and public transportation. As a councilman, I have been Vice Mayor and Mayor. I’ve served on the Beach Erosion for Clean Oceans and Nourishment Board, Santa Barbara Joint Housing Task Group, Public Facility Site Acquisition/Development Committee, South Coast Task Force on Youth Safety, City Council/School Board Committee and City Council/ Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors’ Committee, among others. I feel I have demonstrated the leadership skills, vision, fairness and attention to detail, motivation and experience necessary to continue to be a productive member of our City Council. I thank this wonderful community for its cooperation and support and look forward to continuing to serve as your council member.

Al Clark

I have lived in Carpinteria for 32 years with my wife, Kathleen Lord. We raised three children here, Ben, Charis and Spencer. Now we have two grandchildren, Adam and Jeremy Haines who attend local schools. Our family loves our small town beach community. I graduated from San Marcos High School and UCSB. I went on to receive a Master’s Degree from CSUSD. My experiences working as an Industrial Safety Engineer and operating a small business have alerted me to the challenges local businesses face. Serving on the City’s Finance Committee, I have the experience and judgment necessary to “Keep Carpinteria Carpinteria.” I will protect city finances and strike the balance of supporting local businesses, while resisting corporate intrusion into citizen government. As a past president of the Carpinteria Valley Association and the Carpinteria Creek Committee, and a co-founder of the Carpinteria Sealwatch, I have worked to strike a balance that protects Carpinteria’s resources for all Carpinterians. We must avoid the hazards of oil drilling and fracking, prepare to address natural disasters and sea level rise, and plan for future uses of the former Venoco site and Bluffs I (Tee Time). As a Director of the Carpinteria Valley Arts Council and a volunteer working with underserved children through “Bellas Artes,” I support arts education programs. I also volunteer for the California Avocado Festival and for Help of Carpinteria. I serve on the City’s General Plan Update Committee, the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments, the County Air Pollution Control District Board of Directors, and on the Central Coast Collaborative on Homelessness. Decades of community service and my prior work with the city demonstrate my deep commitment to preserving Carpinteria’s small town character. As your City Council Member, my priority is serving the broadest public interest and keeping Carpinteria welcoming to residents, small businesses and visitors alike. I keep an open mind on all issues. I research the facts, consult with experts and listen to your input before making every decision. We can maintain our small family-oriented beach town quality of life with good planning and sound fiscal management. I look forward to tackling important issues like improving traffic and parking conditions, funding essential services, maintaining programs for youth and seniors, supporting local small businesses, protecting Carpinteria’s affordable housing and establishing a dog park. Thank you for your vote and your trust. Together we can Keep Carpinteria Carpinteria.

Congress lets Conservation Fund expire, Carbajal fights for renewal By DeBra HerrICk

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) expired on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018. A public land conservation program, the LWCF has supported over 200 projects throughout Kern, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties since it began in 1965, including the Carpinteria Bluffs and Carpinteria State Beach. Iconic California public lands such as the Big Sur area of the Los Padres National Forest, Carrizo Plain National Monument, Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge, Channel Islands National Park, Montaña de Oro State Park and dozens of other local parks have received over $35 million for land acquisitions, facility developments and park improvements. In 2007, the City of Carpinteria received $171,000 from LWCF to acquire 1.5 acres adjacent to the Bluffs and $300,000 for the Carpinteria State Beach play area development. The LWCF receives near-universal public support, according to Los Padres ForestWatch, the local nonprofit watchdog organization. Throughout its 53-year history, the LWCF has helped communities and state agencies acquire or gain access to nearly seven million acres of land for public use and recreation, in 41,000 parks

and projects, from urban parks to remote wilderness preserves. “Many of our national monuments, wildlife preserves and parks owe their existence to the LWCF,” says Rebecca August, public lands advocate for ForestWatch. “If Congress does not renew the act, we will lose a critical tool to build upon our region’s rich heritage of public lands, and over time we risk degrading proper maintenance, protection and access to our parks and open spaces. Trails will erode or become overgrown, campsites, park facilities and roads and bridges will fall into disrepair, all of which make our parks and wild places less safe and accessible to the public.” LWCF is primarily funded through offshore oil and gas revenue and matching grants. If the bill is not reauthorized, the revenue will be appropriated by the general treasury, according to ForestWatch. On Wednesday morning, Oct. 3, three days after the LWCF expired, parks across the country had already lost over $6 million in potential funding, according to the LWCF Coalition. “The LWCF supports critical programs that help underserved and urban communities get outside to hike, camp, fish, play sports, enjoy time with their families and

Roy Lee

My family and I have called Carpinteria our home for over 25 years and are proud to be the owners and operators of Uncle Chen’s restaurant since 1993. I graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara with a Bachelor’s degree in History, yet the accomplishments I am most honored by are being married to my wife Tina for over 12 years and raising our three children Taison, Madison and Ellison. As a resident, a supporter of various local non-profit organizations, and business owner, my family and I have established a respectable reputation in Carpinteria that I hope to build upon by putting my experience to work as a member of the City Council. I am running for Carpinteria City Council because I want to contribute my experience to help address the challenges facing our community, such as public safety, economic stability, and ensuring our youth have access to quality education and community resources. Public safety: Work to ensure families continue to live in a safe and clean environment by addressing the needs of the homeless population, the need for more lighted crosswalks and investing more resources to secure the safety and accessibility of our parks, bike paths and structures. Economic stability: Keeping our community smallbusiness friendly; making sure mom-and-pop business continue to thrive by keeping retail chains and big-box stores out. Investing in our youth: As a father of school-aged children, I have a vested interest in ensuring our local public schools are able to excel at educating and caring for our children. Our youth are the future of this city and we must give them the tools and community resources to succeed and grow, such as a skate park and dog park. I support educating the youth about respect—respecting their elders, first responders and the environment. I understand that in order to ensure that Carpinteria moves into the future while maintaining its unique characteristics, it will require new ideas and new wells of experience to pull from. As a new member to the City Council, I will be able to contribute both. I appreciate your vote.

enhance their cultural heritage,” said Graciela Cabello, director of youth and community engagement at ForestWatch. “Allowing this fund to expire will effectively block access to outdoor recreation for generations.” In a letter to CVN, Congressman Salud Carbajal wrote, “we must keep up the fight to protect our environment. This summer, I joined campers and beachgoers at Carpinteria State Beach … Locals know that this beach has it all—shaded picnic areas, a children’s education center, recreation activities and gorgeous views… Known as the ‘World’s Safest Beach,’ Carpinteria State Beach was developed under the Land and Water Conservation Fund. In addition to preserving this beach for the public, this program has been used to create local parks, athletic fields and wildlife areas across the country. Each day, American families hike, hunt, fish and play on these protected outdoor spaces. “LWCF, known as America’s best parks program, helps to create public land projects without using a dime of taxpayer money… That’s why I’m fighting to reauthorize and fully fund LWCF…” Pointing to several environmental concerns, including clean car standards and offshore oil drilling, Carbajal wrote, “Despite the onslaught attacks on our environmental protections, we must continue fighting for what’s right—our public lands, clean water and air are worth fighting for.” To learn more about LWCF and/or to write a letter to your congressman visit

Ask the Candidates Carpinteria City Council

Question: Introduce yourself and tell the community why you are running for City Council. Darwin Ringling

My wife and I love living in our wonderful and unique coastal community of Carpinteria. I am proud to call this charming small town, nestled between the ocean and the mountains, my home. I am running for Carpinteria City Council because I believe the decisions they make really matter to our city’s future and our quality of life. As a licensed Certified Management Accountant, a licensed Certified Financial Manager, a degreed Master of Business Administration who works locally as a financial consultant, I believe I can bring a unique skill set to help the City Council become even more effective at serving our community. In addition to having a background as a chief financial officer for several non-profits and a financial controller for several for profit organizations, I have also served on the board of many organizations. However, it’s not just the fact I know my way around budgets and know how to wisely maximize our tax dollars, I am also good at working with people, even people who don’t agree with me. It’s partly my demeanor, my personality and my approach. I truly care about the people of Carpinteria and want the best for them and our city. I am good at getting through an agenda efficiently and keeping meetings running. I have a good grasp of the complexity of laws and contracts. I realize the decisions and rules the councilmembers enact affect our neighborhoods, our businesses, our environment, our livelihood and our future sustainability—so I take them very seriously. I believe some of our highest priorities are: public safety, preserving and improving the natural beauty of our environment, economic vitality, budget management, education, relieving traffic congestion and supporting our local businesses. I want Carpinteria to continue to be a safe place for people to walk and ride their bikes, especially our children. I want to encourage our community to shop and dine locally. By shopping locally, our businesses can expand their services and offer more competitive prices. I pledge to you that I will work hard to protect and enhance our quality of life and give you the best value for your tax dollars from our $17,939,467 budget.

Brad Stein

I was born and raised in Burbank. Growing up, I spent a great deal of time in Carpinteria. In 1980, I moved here permanently with my wife Carla. We have been married 39 years and have three grown sons. I am a 41-year employee of Union Pacific Railroad and in 1990 I was elected to the Carpinteria City Council. Prior to being on City Council, I served on the Carpinteria Citizens Advisory Board and the Downtown/Waterfront Revitalization Committee, because keeping Carpinteria a small, safe, familyoriented community starts with a well maintained, safe and visually appealing downtown and beach. It is an honor and a privilege to have served on our City Council for 28 years. I am proud of what has been accomplished: new sports fields and a nature preserve on the Carpinteria Bluffs, completion of the Salt Marsh Park, the Community Garden Park, the revitalization of our downtown and the preservation of our single family neighborhoods, to name a few accomplishments. I voted to keep “big box” stores out and for the hiring of an Economic Development Director to work with existing businesses and reach out to new businesses making sure everyone gets the support they need from our city. And we’ve kept the business license fee at the 1990 rate, making our business license fee the lowest in the state. Our small businesses benefit from First Friday, the Buy Locally Policy, the Host Program and other city sponsored programs and events. Besides our small businesses, I have placed a high priority on programs that serve our youth and have always supported local sports teams, senior citizens, the arts center and our library. Carla and I raised our three sons here. All attended Carpinteria schools, were active in sports and went on to play sports in college. Eric, an Annapolis graduate, is a U.S. Navy pilot proudly serving our country. Jeremy is a chemical engineer and Kevin is in his senior year of college. Serious challenges lie ahead. One is to preserve Carpinteria’s identity as a small, safe, family-oriented community. Another is to ensure that our city remains financially sound. I understand these challenges and will continue working hard to address them. I am proud to have served the community I love. With your vote, I will continue to do so and will always put Carpinteria first.

California avo-growers finish a tough season CVN RepoRt

California avocado growers have faced numerous challenges this season with heat, wind and fire impacting production. The avocado season which began in November 2017, ends this month at about 325 million pounds of avocados total produced, according to the California Avocado Commission. “It was a trying season,” said Tom Bellamore, President of the California Avocado Commission. “Towards the beginning of the season, the Thomas Fire broke out and some of the avocado farmers were impacted. There was loss of harvest, lost homes and so on. On the state level, the acreage (of avocado farms) impacted was low, but it was still a devastating event.” The season also held cold spells after January and several heat-events this summer. “This has occurred in the past, but it seemed to be of greater severity,” said Bellamore. Avocado trees perform best in a moderate climate, below 100 degrees Fahrenheit. During periods of extremely high heat, avocado trees can suffer sun damage causing leaves and branches to turn brown, and fruit to drop. As Avofest celebrates the 2018 harvest, the 2019 crop begins to set on the trees.

Lucy Collins grabs an avocado right from the shelf. There’s no doubt this baby is a native Carpinterian.

Letters Faith Lutheran sent back to drawing board, why?

Did you know that it took only one year and 45 days to build the Empire State Building? One hundred and two floors of steel and glass which is still standing and in full use. Our little church has been a part of this community since 1949. Faith Lutheran Church has worked in good faith with the city for 2 ½ years, to get a permit to build seven houses (remember one of these houses must go to low income housing thus the need for seven) on half of the church’s property. Two and one half years of changing, revising and adapting plans to city and committee specifications. Hundreds of hours of our time, hundreds of hours of the city workers’ time and tens of thousands of dollars of this little church’s meager resources. Each change requiring a redo for the architect. We have paid for all kinds of permits and inspections, land surveys, lot splits, engineers, water, property lines, easements, story poles and over $10,000 to the city itself. After all the committee meetings and all the reviews and all the months and months of time, the Architectural Review Board and the Planning Commission recommended the seven single family homes be approved... on Sept. 24 the City Council said “no.” The City Council said, reduce the density (less houses) and provide more offstreet parking, and come back again for another review. For 2 ½ years the number of houses was the same, they could have just said that 2 ½ years ago and saved the stress, time and the tens of thousands of dollars this little church has spent to meet the city requirements. I am sad and I am tired.

Carolyn Edwards, member of the congregation of Faith Lutheran Carpinteria

Support family living, “yes” on X

As a longtime resident of Carpinteria and parent of an active six-year-old daughter, I support Measure X. I appreciate our town’s overall safety, lush parks, amazing library, pedestrian-friendly infrastructure and many kid-centric non-

profits, including Girls Inc. Did you know the City helps make those things possible through its financial support? If you too appreciate and support these aspects of family living in Carpinteria, then I urge you to vote “yes” on Measure X. A minor tax increase is a small price to pay for giving the City a reliable income stream that is independent from fickle Santa Barbara County and California State coffers.

Maureen Foley Claffey Carpinteria

Voting to keep Carpinteria, Carpinteria

I am voting for Al Clark because he thinks seriously and studies the issues thoroughly that come before the City Council. Some people may wonder why he asks so many questions at the meetings. It is because he thinks about the issues, studies them and only after hearing from the residents, City staff and reviewing all factors does he make a decision. He wants to protect Carpinteria from overdevelopment, while protecting our natural beauty and environment. Al continues to support building and affordable housing, which allows people to live and work here, and makes Carpinteria a more informed and involved community. I want council members who value and support Carpinteria’s small town. Council members who work to maintain the unequaled quality of our environment—and that is Al Clark.

Amrita M. Salm Carpinteria

a caring candidate

Roy Lee is an excellent candidate for Carpinteria City Council. He is familiar with our local issues. While the incumbents have done an excellent job of caring for our city, an infusion of new energy and ideas can also serve us well. Roy Lee doesn’t appear on the sample ballot I just received. Don’t let that deter you from considering him as an excellent candidate.

Viewpoint Put ideals into action by voting Nov. 6 By DR. SuSan SaLCiDo

Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools In just a matter of weeks, November’s election will be upon us. Those who are 18 and older will have the opportunity—and responsibility—to vote for representatives including local school board candidates, members of the assembly and congress, and state governor. We will be voting for individuals who will represent us—“we the people.” How will those voting for the first time make responsible decisions about candidates and propositions? How do any of us make the best choices we can in the voting booth? And how can we have confidence that our choices matter? The answers to these questions are rooted in an education that provides knowledge about how our government works to impact our lives, the skills required to identify and evaluate the relevant arguments and opinions, and the duty to let our opinions and voices be heard. To continue to thrive, our democracy requires all of us to do what’s best in our neighborhoods and our voting booths. We need to take part in community activities, make ourselves aware of communal needs, vote and make sure that our votes are well-informed. By knowing the issues and where candidates stand on them, we can assert our values and beliefs about freedom, equality and equity, and put our ideals into action. The process involves wading through the invective and gimmicks and slogans in order to determine what policies a candidate actually supports on a wide range of issues. It’s not always easy to do, but it’s important. Young people who see adults around them make these efforts are more likely to apply the same due diligence. Every day we see opportunities to volunteer at events and contribute to “change” movements that affect communities nearby and across the world. These are causes that young people and adults can stand behind, and then observe the outcomes first-hand. It is empowering to set out to make a change, raise funds or volunteer time and effort for the greater

good, and then watch those efforts come to fruition. Sometimes change in policy or practice is slow, but the impact can be long-lasting. The same is true of the choices we make on our ballots. The change we seek can be slow to take hold, but the impact can be long-lasting and life-changing for our families and communities. In order to help positive changes take place, it is important to understand fully how our government functions, to distinguish between vitriol and respectful disagreement and debate, and to fully appreciate the responsibilities we shoulder as citizens. Democracy requires that “we the people” vote to secure government of, by, and for the people. We must stand up for the common good and support candidates that reflect that vital cause. Thomas Jefferson said, “In a democracy, agreement is not essential, but participation is.” That is why it is important that we all understand the democratic values that unite us. Schools play an important role in supporting that process. The benefits of learning about our government and our duties as citizens are abundant. Besides fostering a healthy society, it can help teach skills needed for the workplace, including critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration and innovation. Done well, civic education engages students by making classroom learning relevant to real life. Thomas Paine famously said, “The right of voting is the primary right by which other rights are protected.” That is particularly true at this critical juncture for our nation, in light of the events taking place that impact us all. It follows, then, that educating students about how our government works and the importance and process of voting must be a priority of a society that helps promote participation. That’s how positive change can take place. All of us, together, can help cultivate that urgent and important sense of civic pride and responsibility in our young people and all voters.

Sewing for children around the world CVn

mission possible barbara dunlap Get ready for a burst of color and activity when you walk into the Crafty Ladies room at the Carpinteria Community Church. The space is filled with bright children’s clothes, jewelry, pillows, backpacks, hats and hostess and baby gifts. As for the activity? All through the craft room, women are busy sewing to create this colorful fare. Crafty Ladies sell the handmade wares locally. These sales pay for the group’s many missions, such as providing diapers for infants and dresses and shorts for youngsters in developing countries. The Crafty Ladies began with a number of Carpinteria Community Church women working in their own homes. It became a more formalized group in 2005. Louise Moore, one of the original Crafty Ladies, describes this remarkable group. Q: Crafty Ladies started out small but has blossomed in recent years. How did that occur? A: We progressed from working in our homes to working at the church, but we didn’t have a permanent home at the church in the beginning so we had to pack up our sewing machines and supplies after each sewing day. In 2011, the Carpinteria Community Church provided us with our own room. This was when we expanded our group of church crafters to include members of the community. We now have 35 on our roster. Q: In 2012, Carpinterian Zoe Iverson and the Crafty Ladies joined forces to make pillowcase dresses for girls in Africa. Please tell us about the dresses and shorts you sew. A: The first year we made 239 pillowcase dresses. We have now delivered more than 2,000. It occurred to us that we needed to include boys as part of our outreach, so we started making shorts out of T-shirts. Many of the dresses and shorts go to World Dance for Humanity in Rwanda and the Lighthouse Medical Mission in Gambia and Guatemala. Q: You provide other essentials as well, such as diapers and menstrual kits. What are these items made of, and why are they needed?

A: We sew diapers for the Lighthouse Medical Mission in Guatemala. They’re made of flannel. They’re very simple but are much appreciated. The menstrual kits go to World Dance for Humanity. The idea is to “give back the day” to Rwandan girls who couldn’t go to school during their periods because they had no protection (such as pads or tampons). The kits consist of a shield, five pads made of flannel and a drawstring bag to keep everything together. World Dance for Humanity provides soap and underpants to go with the kits.

Carpinteria Family School students will benefit from the Giovanni pizza booth at Avofest.

Carpinteria Family School slinging pizza at Avofest

There’ll be local pizza available on the strip at the California Avocado Festival, and anyone purchasing the slices provided by Giovanni’s will support school supplies and programs at Carpinteria Family School. Shawn Noormand, owner of Giovanni’s Pizza, said it was an easy choice to supply the discounted pizza to the school. “It’s just the right thing to do,” he said. He will also provide an avocado sauce to go with a margarita pizza special for Avofest. Giovanni’s, which has been in Carpinteria for 22 years, also supports the Summer Reading Program at Carpinteria High School with free pizzas for kids who read the required number of books through the program. Carpinteria Family School’s pizza booth will be open throughout the weekend.

Q: You also make dolly blankets to help comfort children. Please talk about these blankets and who receives them. A: Dollies Making a Difference is a group of women in Pacific Palisades who create one-of-a-kind dollies and teddy bears to send to children all over the world. These children are in need of something special—for instance, they may have lost everything in a disaster. We crochet, knit and sew small blankets to wrap the dolls and bears in. Q: Crafty Ladies supports foster children as well. What do you do to lend a hand to these youngsters? A: Each year, a church in Huntington Beach puts on the Royal Family Kids’ Camp for foster children who have been abused or neglected. We’ve provided 45 kids’ quilts for the children to use at camp and then take home with them. Q: You sell items at three special events in Carp to pay for your supplies to keep the work going. Where and when are these events? A: We sell our handmade goods at the annual Three Church Holiday Bazaar, which will be at Carpinteria Community Church this year. (See details below.) We also participate in the Artists’ Studio Tour sponsored by the Carpinteria Arts Center on Mother’s Day weekend. Usually we sell at the California Avocado Festival, although we won’t this year. Folks can also shop for gifts at the craft room on our workdays—Monday and Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. Q: What motivates you and the other members of the Crafty Ladies to do this volunteer work? A: It’s the joy you get from doing something for someone else. Our craft room is a creative haven for Samaritans who craft for others. You can help Crafty Ladies welcomes new members. To learn more about volunteering, email or call (805) 684-2284.

from seemingly endless discrimination. As Sunja’s children come of age, the novel reveals the complexities of family and national history. The novel questions whether prejudices can ever be overcome, and specifically, whether Korean-Japanese people will one day have a homeland. I did not know much about Korean/ Japanese history. In portraying this one family’s struggle, the novel provides a difficult view of Korean/Japanese history. Sunja’s isolation and dislocation become palpable in Lee’s hands. Reckoning with one determined, wounded family’s place in history, Lee’s novel is a meditation on the generational nature of truly forging a home. —Tara O’Reilly, Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave.

Friends of the Library Recommends From left, Maya Cooper and Emi Quintero learn about voter rights and civic engagement at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria.

Girls Inc. gets out the vote

As the 2018 midterm election draws near, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria is promoting civic engagement, voting and girls’ aspirations to elected office. As part of the nonpartisan, She Votes® program, Girls Inc. girls participate in activities that introduce them to voting, public speaking, fundraising and campaign advertising. Girls Inc. is also hosting a network-wide “Get Out the Vote Challenge” to combat voter fatigue during this year’s midterm election. The girls have collected 60 voter pledges and hope to collect at least 75 before Nov. 6. The Girls Inc. voter pledge card states: “I understand that voting in the election on Nov. 6, 2018 is an important part of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria girls have my civic duty. Even though it is not a already collected over 60 voter presidential election, the opportunity to pledge cards for their “Get Out the select members of Congress as well as Vote Challenge.” state and/or local officials is significant. I will exercise my right to vote, to make my voice heard on issues I care about and elect representatives who reflect my values.” In the She Votes program, girls learn that during a U.S. federal midterm election, only 40 percent of eligible voters typically cast their ballot on races for senators and representatives, governors, mayors and other local officials. “While our youth cannot cast ballots, elected officials decide policies that affect their lives. We want youth to better understand that process and see themselves as active community members, recognizing that voting is powerful,” said Jessica Wetzel, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria programs director.

“Frankenstein” By Mary Shelley The Carpinteria Book Club will be reading Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” this month as part of Santa Barbara Reads. Two hundred years after it was published, the book addresses critical issues of the role of science and the misuse of knowledge that are perhaps even more important than when Mary Shelley put pen to paper. It also remains a captivating horror story, prompting our imaginations to reread, and retell.

“Tyrant : Shakespeare on Politics” By Stephen Greenblatt

Stephen Greenblatt’s “Tyrant : Shakespeare on Politics” is an astute and highly accessible analysis of how the Bard spoke truth to the throngs in his audiences in a time of censorship. Like Shakespeare’s work, this fascinatingly layered and expansive book reveals how examining historically destructive patterns through the lens of a remote time and place can teach us about ourselves. In the context of this past week’s highly divisive Ford/Kavanaugh hearings, “Tyrant” resonates in ways that underscore the endless quality of Shakespeare’s work to reach out across centuries and remain relevant. Greenblatt’s work is a brilliantly crafted read of Shakespeare that examines how tyranny comes about, the conditions that leave societies vulnerable to it, the insecurities and ineptitude of the tyrants themselves, those who enable it, and the brave figures who resist it. Despite the deterioration of institutions, the madness of a monarch, the upending of societal norms to the point where overt lies are tolerated, where flattery takes the place of counsel, where anti-intellectualism prevails and impulse takes the place of law, hope resides in the people. —Giti White, volunteer, Friends of the Carpinteria Library

Ventura Investment fulfills wish list for UBGC Carpinteria Unit

The Ventura Investment Company, community supporter of the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County (UBGC), donated a plethora of wish list gifts to the Carpinteria Unit on Friday, Sept. 28. Ventura Investment was motivated to donate gifts after staff participated in a UBGC Corporate Playdate in August. “Ventura Investment Co. is so proud to give to Boys and Girls Clubs throughout the tri-counties, and to see their outstanding work with our youth,” said Krystle Botwinick, community relations director. Ventura Investment revealed the wish list gifts at a Gold Card Ceremony that honored club members who have attended the Carpinteria Unit for 105 days this year. Club members were thrilled to see the gifts that included a foosball table, board games, arts & crafts and school supplies. “Seeing our club members interact with the staff from Ventura Investment during

the corporate playdate was priceless,” said Michael Baker, CEO for UBGC. “Seeing those same Ventura Investment employees come back a couple of weeks later to present our members with items from their wish list was incredible.” Corporate Playdates are 90-minute events that give companies and community members the opportunity to see their donations and contributions to UBGC in action. Participants are paired up with club kids for activities like team bonding, research projects in the tech center, art activities and games room challenges. “It’s a time for adults to become club kids, mentor them and see firsthand their impact of spending quality time in a club,” wrote Tina Ballue, UBGC director of special events. To learn more about UBGC Corporate Playdates, contact Erynn Wanek at ewanek@ or (805) 681-1315.

Carpinteria’s biggest party By Mark Brickley

It’s time for a big helping of peace, love and guacamole. The 32nd annual California Avocado Festival rolls into downtown Carpinteria this weekend (Oct 5-7) offering tempting tri-tip sandwiches, cool avocado ice cream and sides of ska, soul and rock ‘n’ roll. Carpinteria’s Avofest is the southland’s largest free street fair, with entertainment for almost every taste from Latin rhythms to classic country music. Each October over 100,000 locals and guests descend on Linden Avenue to sip suds, savor snow cones and listen to dozens of bands playing on the festival’s four stages. The line-up also includes family friendly acts on the Kid’s Stage, located just off Linden on 7th Street. “The festival is about having fun. I mean, how serious can we be? We’re throwing a party for an avocado!” Entertainment Director Mike Lazaro mused. Seventy-five acts will perform at this year’s festival.

Rock ‘n’ pop

The tight, harmony-driven rock that The Tearaways play has made them a top regional and internationally recognized band. The Los Angeles Times said their haunting original “Jessica Something” was one the 1990’s quintessential pop songs. Each summer during “Beatles Week” The Tearaway’s perform at Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club. They will play Saturday night on the Main Stage from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. Carpinteria songwriter Jamey Geston entertains on Friday at 3 p.m. at the Seal Stage. She began her career singing at the Avocado Festival and has evolved into a young touring musician who recently appeared at Santa Barbara’s Soho Nightclub. Geston’s songs have unusual alt-rock textures, cascading melodies and lyrical shadows. Carpinteria City Manager/bassist Dave Durflinger will perform Friday at 9 p.m. on the Seal Stage with rock act South On Linden. Lead vocalist Trish Remley digs deep to help re-create the band’s up-tempo, classic rock covers. Don’t miss Sgt. Pepper, the South Coast’s top Beatles tribute band. They have three great guitarists/vocalists and a dynamic drummer with real singing chops. Sgt. Pepper will perform Lennon & McCartney’s timeless harmonies on Saturday from 2 to 3 p.m. on the Seal Stage.


Local ska sensations The Upbeat draw the festival’s biggest crowd. Formed in Carpinteria in the mid-80s, lead vocalist Mike Organista says the band’s Jamaican-

infused music has evolved over time. “We started with the 2-tone sound and were the only band around playing English ska/punk. Reggae is the undercurrent of our musical form but now most of our music is original,” said Organista. Come early to see The Upbeat perform on the Main Stage on Saturday from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. San Luis Obispo reggae act The Kicks have a laid-back groove. They describe their music as “female led roots reggae with soul and jazz influences and conscientious lyrics, written under the California sun.” Reese Galido is the band’s lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist and is supported by six top musicians. Come sway to their music on Sunday from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Grotto Tent.

The blues

The Crooked Eye Tommy Band is fronted by guitarist/vocalist Tommy Marsh. The band plays original So Cal style blues featuring a double lead guitar attack, steamy Allman Brothers-style organ and a solid brass section. Tommy says their sound is a mix of deep-seeded blues and smoky southern rock. They’re Avofest regulars and perform Saturday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on the Main Stage. Local guitar hero Rick Reeves will handle Main Stage MC duties all weekend. Reeves can stretch notes like Beckham bends soccer balls. He once opened for the late great B.B. King at the Ventura Theater. Reeves and his talented Blues All-Stars will close the festival’s Main Stage on Sunday at 5 p.m.

Ska band The Upbeat performs on Saturday at 5:45 p.m. on the Main Stage.

Folk scene

The Laughing Buddha Song Stars will perform at the Grotto Stage on Friday at 1 p.m. These local songwriters and singers gather each month to exchange new songs. The talented collective will present original and cover tunes in an “in the round” format. Phil Salazar may be the best fiddler on the West Coast. This in-demand musician and session artist has performed at the Alcazar Theatre and is a regular at Avofest. His sound embraces the folk roots of Bluegrass, Americana and Celtic fiddle styles. Watch Salazar’s fingers fly and be bowed over at his 3 to 4:40 p.m. Saturday performance on the Grotto Stage. After a long absence from the festival, Ventura folk-rocker Phil Cody is returning to play Saturday on the Seal Stage from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. His open tuned originals have early Bob Dylan and Paul Simon influences. Cody’s acoustic guitar and harmonica accompany his haunting melodies.

Latin & soul

Acoustic guitarist Tony Ybarra is one of the area’s finest Latin and jazz influenced musicians. A fixture at local venues and private events, Ybarra will showcase his superb skills at the Grotto Stage on Friday afternoon from 4 to 4:40 p.m. Anthony Prieto’s rich, vibrato-driven vocals are a treat to hear. He may have the festival’s biggest voice. Sometimes Prieto ventures off the stage and sings directly to appreciative audience members. Experience his soulful Latin sound and talented band this Sunday from 1 to 2 p.m. on the Main Stage. Bring your dancing shoes. Other great Latin and soul acts appearing at this year’s festival include Mestizo, Heart & Soul Band featuring Bella, Grupo 805, Laura Cozzi and Soul Machine, Grooveline and Mescal Martini.

Country music

The Tearaways have become an internationally acclaimed act.

Jimmie Ray and Cyndi Cantrell perform the music of Johnny and June Carter Cash. This talented married duo tour the West Coast each year playing hits including, “Folsom Prison Blues,” “A Boy Named Sue” and “Ring Of Fire.” Jimmie’s deep baritone and Cyndi’s soulful renditions will be supported by a band of top local musicians. The Cantrells perform Saturday on the Seal Stage from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Carpinteria’s country band the Dusty Jugz will perform twice at the festival’s Grotto Stage. Their first gig is on Friday night from 9 to 10 p.m. and they return Saturday night to play from 8:45 to 10 p.m. This practiced, popular band is known throughout the area for their classic country sound. This summer guitarist/vocalist Nate Latta and his band headlined Rockabilly Night at Las

Latin vocalist Anthony Prieto entertains the audience on and off the stage.

Vegas’ Golden Tiki Club. They also have ongoing residencies at the Maverick in Santa Ynez and Relm Bistro in Camarillo. He describes his sound as “early country with heart” and plays a hybrid of traditional country and folk with a swinging rockabilly beat. Latta plays the Seal Stage on Sunday from 5 to 6 p.m.

Avofest tips Parking

Unless you have a secret spot don’t try to park downtown. Your search for parking will be frustrating and you might get a ticket if you park in the wrong place. Instead, take advantage of the Festival’s Shuttle which leaves frequently from the Carpinteria High School’s large parking lot. It drops you off a block from the festival and the very reasonable parking fee benefits the high school’s athletic department.


While service animals are allowed inside the festival grounds, all other pets are not. Security will ask you to take your dog to the festival’s free Doggy Day Care Center. It’s located a block from the

Warriors see red in loss to Cardinals BY ALONZO OROZCO

The Carpinteria High School football team continued Citrus Coast League play, travelling to Santa Paula on Friday, Sept. 28, where they fell to the unbeaten Cardinals, 34-0. The loss puts the Warriors at 1-2 in league play and 4-3 overall, while Santa Paula improves to 3-0 in league and 7-0 overall. The home team scored its first touchdown on a two-yard run by Jacob Barba to make it 7-0 with 2:56 left in the first quarter. The Cardinals tried to add another before the half, but an interception by Carpinteria’s Chris Ramirez put an end to the drive at the Warriors’ 14 yard line. The visiting Warriors received the second half kickoff, and drove the ball to the 49 on a Vance Keiser pass to Will Collins, followed by an Isaac De Alba run off the draw play. The trio led Carpinteria statistically for the game, with Keiser completing five of 13 passes for 30 yards and one interception, while Collins made four catches for 23 yards and De Alba ran 12 times for 21 yards. But the drive stalled there, forcing a punt by Alberto Arroyo that put Santa Paula on its own 20. Jacob Munoz’s 50-yard completion to Victor Duran was a key play in the Cardinals next drive. Santa Paula advanced

to the Warrior 10, where Munoz again connected with Duran—this time for a 10-yard score and a 14-0 lead with 7:52 left in the third period. Once again, Carpinteria was forced to punt and the Cardinals were back in business at their own 37. On the next drive, Santa Paula successfully converted on fourth-and-six, giving them a first down at the Warrior 18. Tim Luna finished off the drive, running wide left for an 18-yard touchdown to make it 21-0 with 2:18 left in the quarter. Santa Paula’s Pedro Pachuca came up with an interception on the next Warrior possession, returning it 40 yards to the house and bringing the score to 28-0 with the quarter coming to a close. “You got to give them credit, they played really well. We hung with them for a half, but we couldn’t generate any offense,” said Carpinteria coach Rick Candaele, whose team was without top receiver Brady Sturdivan in the second half due to injury. The Cardinals added another score in the final stanza on Hector Zuniga’s eight-yard touchdown run to cap off the scoring for the night. The Warriors go back on the road Friday, Oct. 5, as they continue Citrus Coast League play at 6:30 p.m. in Malibu.

The eyes of the football world were focused on Los Angeles on Thursday, Sept. 27, as the Rams were ready to play in a showdown. Whether you watched the Los Angeles Rams beat the Minnesota Vikings at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum or the Cate Rams beat the Milken Wildcats at L.A. Pierce College, it was a good day to be a Rams fan. The Cate Rams battled through the hot sun for a 77-12 victory, while the L.A. Rams held on for a 38-31 win. It pushes both Rams teams to 4-0. Cate scored early and often in the first quarter, with 43 points in the opening frame. Senior Drew Anastasio had three first-quarter touchdowns, including a 35-yard interception return on the first series of the game. For the second straight game, fellow senior Jack Deardorff scored on the first offensive play from scrimmage on a 20-yard touchdown run.

Not only did Anastasio have an interception return for a touchdown, fellow linebacker junior Callum Casey recorded a pick-six as well. Senior Carson Williams brought down the Wildcat quarterback in the end zone for a safety in the first quarter. The entire Cate defense played great all game long. Juniors Will Anderson, Dalton Phillips, Elliot Tsai, Khadim Pouye, along with juniors Cal Sinclair and Ethan Cassulo all played well from the linebacker spot. Senior Jake Nelson and juniors Scott Holmes and Chris Tarafa, along with sophomores James Marin, Jay Hernandez and Jasper Bennett formed a stout front line that gave Milken very little room to move.

arpinteria needs additional revenue essential services, and is proposing this. Is this a sign of financial mismanagement? Not at all. It is because over the years, we have opted for: a nature preserve instead of an oil refinery, and open space instead of a resort hotel on the bluffs; a salt marsh instead of a yacht marina; a new neighborhood instead of a Costco; and preserving the farmland that surrounds our City. All of these and other similar choices we made together, because we value our small beach town, and don’t want Carpinteria to go the way of countless other coastal towns. But each of those decisions meant that tax revenues from that land would be lower or non existent. In the meantime, our streets kept aging, costs for law enforcement kept increasing, and inflation affected all of our city services. We have shaped Carpinteria by our choices, and this modest tax increase is the price we (and our visitors) must pay to keep our town in the shape we all want it to be.

The uses and abuses of nostalgia Cvn

the summerland shore f r a n d av i s

Every fall when I get a catalog from the Vermont Country Store I curl into a warm fuzzy ball. Paging through their seasonal offerings tosses me right back into my childhood. This year it’s Halloween candles designed in the ‘40s—ghosts and witches with sweet faces. Plus, orange and black gum drops. The Vermont Country Store calls itself a “purveyor of the practical and hard to find.” Some of the items they sell are dredged out of the past, my past anyway, like the Bit O’Honey candies, the kooky cat clock with moving eyes, and Lanz flannel nightgowns. I noticed that once I’d gone through the catalog this year, I kept it on the kitchen table where I could glance at the cover, a green-eyed cat poking up from inside a merry pumpkin. It made me feel good. Old fashioned and right. I knew I was bathing in nostalgia, longing for a childhood long gone and thoroughly over. I recognized the sweetsad mixture for what it was, but the sweet had a more powerful hold than the sad. In fact, nostalgia researchers have found that engaging in fond thoughts of the past actually increase a person’s sensation of warmth. It turns out there’s been quite a lot of research on nostalgia. The word was coined in the 17th century to describe the condition of seamen who had to be away from home for long periods. It comes from the Greek nostos, homecoming, and Latin algos, pain or ache. Initially, nostalgia was considered an illness, a symptom of psychic and physical distress. But 20th century psychologists have had a field day with it, discovering all kinds of positive effects derived from feeling nostalgic. Aside from creating actual perceptions of warmth, a bout of nostalgia can supposedly help with developing coping strategies, especially during stressful or challenging times. It’s grounding, strength building. The feel-good times of the past feed a sense of present wellbeing. My gym friend Karen Wilson described nostalgia as “going back to the past as a place to move forward.” Which is exactly what many of us do—revisit those especially good times, places of comfort, to gather strength for whatever we’re facing in the present. I read that people engage in nostalgic thoughts an average of once a week. I don’t know about others, but for me the holidays always arrive with a big bundle of wistfulness. Nostalgic feelings can be triggered by music (all those carols), smells (cinnamon and pine), touch and even weather. A trip to the snow brings memories of my 16-year-old self on bus rides up to the slopes with the ski club. While generally regarded as helpful, nostalgia can also have a negative side. In addition to personal nostalgia, there

is also something called collective nostalgia. That kind of nostalgia, shared by a group, looks to the past as a simpler, more contented time—kind of a golden age. Things were better then, the thinking goes, when our differences weren’t as apparent. Things like religious differences, sexual preference and skin color didn’t intrude as much. Our place in the world, our nation’s place, was more secure. It’s easy and comforting to see past times as better than the present. But those hankering after the good old days of yesteryear often conjure up only selective slices. The good parts. The time when we were united, and everyone was happy. Backyard baseball and bar-b-q’s, Mama’s cooking, family gatherings, fishing trips. Factor in the Vietnam war, an arms race, the assassination of two Kennedys and Martin Luther King, the Watts riots, and that past doesn’t look so rosy. In fact, it looks a lot like the present, full of turmoil and uncertainties. Politicians both past and present have capitalized on collective nostalgia. They use peoples’ dissatisfaction with the changing complexities and moral ambiguities of the present to stoke our fears. Be afraid, they say, man the walls. Criminal immigrants are flooding in, gangs and drugs. Beware of those wearing hijabs and head coverings; Muslims want to plant the flag of Islam in our churches. Gays are perverting our children. Fear is a powerful tool. Exploited fully, it can be used to get people to do anything, give up their freedoms, surrender their free will, turn on their neighbors. Senator Joseph McCarthy, author of the “red scare,” did it very effectively in the 1950s. He scared Americans so thoroughly they let him run rampant, ruining lives in the media, universities and the government for years until he was stopped by his own incompetence and mania. We were greater then, America was greater then, we think, turning our backs on today’s challenging reality in order to retreat to the comforts of our reimagined past. Our collective nostalgia, longing for those simpler, better times can blind us to how we are being manipulated by today’s politicians to do their will. They make us fearful, turn our longings into battering rams, change our warm thoughts and wistfulness into distrust of those who don’t share that same past. Ambitious politicians stoke our worst fears to gain power. Fear is a great tool for amassing power according to our president, who in 2016 said, “Real power is, I don’t even want to use the word: Fear.” “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” FDR wisely told us during a dark time in our nation’s history. As the holidays approach, let’s try to rise above the fearful clamoring. Let’s grow braver and more thoughtful. We can, as Karen suggested, visit the past as a place to move forward. We can mine the strength, richness and stability we find in our own individual past lives to help us confront and cope with the ever-changing and challenging present. “The good old days” may never really have been as good as our recollections. As the humorist Will Rogers quipped, “Things ain’t what they used to be and probably never were.” One good thing: Heavy morning mists melting away to dreamy fall days.

Public Notice A lot of surfers, not a lot of waves—but the water sure is nice.


City of Carpinteria Architectural Review Board Regular Meeting 5:30 p.m., Thursday, October 11, 2018 City Hall - Council Chamber


Chubasco time


Everyone is from somewhere

My wife and I jokingly say we’re “Pan-Californians.” I was born in Laguna Beach and grew up in Newport and Natasha was born and raised in Hollywood, but we’ve both lived in Northern California for long stretches and met in North County San Diego—so we’ve migrated a bit, and more-or-less ended-up in Carpinteria when a place came up for rent after our daughter was born and we wanted to live closer to my mother in Santa Barbara. What a revelation, this town. Being a “Pan-Californian” has its upsides like getting to know new regions and new groups of people, but the true home coordinates of one’s birthplace are significant—a marker of family origins and life circumstances. Where we’re from says a lot, but as someone groovy once also said, “It’s not where you’re from, it’s where you’re at.” So, when I start feeling anxious in a crowded surfing situation it’s tempting to think about hierarchies of place, and wonder if that gal with the shiny new board over there came out from Duluth with an advanced degree to work at one of the fancy global corporations that operate locally. No doubt she’s added surfing to her work-out routine, my stinking-thinking goes, and now she’s gliding across the face of a wave that I would otherwise be riding. Of course, playing the California generations game—particularly for someone of European descent—is as short-sighted as it is self-serving. I love the story of my great grandmother being born on the ship rounding Cape Horn from Denmark in the 1800s, en route to her family’s eventual home in Antioch, California. But our first neighbor here in Carpinteria, the patriarch of a family of three strong recent Carpinteria High School athlete/ graduates, pointed to Romero Canyon in the mountains just west of town and said, “That’s where our people are from,” referring to the coastal Chumash band. The other side of his family were Californios, so yeah—they’re from California.

Summer in Carpinteria

The ocean lays flat for months on end, “The World’s Safest Beach” a paradise for building sand castles and getting children

into the water. But surfing is pretty much off the agenda with the exception of the occasional wind swell/high tide evening combo, which on the right board can be plenty fun. It’s a relief actually, not having to worry if you’re missing good waves. Then a Pacific hurricane develops off Mexico, spins Northward along the coast of Baja and the calls go out: “How’s the swell looking, where are you going to go?” It’s the local surfing grounds naturally, a few hours away from the Protestant work ethic, then home for dinner. And the joy is largely in seeing the ocean come to life, the water swimming-pool clear with a deep south swell, the colors of rock reef and eel grass playing shades of green and shadow under a shimmering blue sea. Because man, is it crowded out there, people from all over it seems—including the woman from Duluth on that wave that should have been “mine.” Yet within the crowd is a nucleus of the local surfing community, their relationships running decades back and further back in time with families rooted to the land here. And I’m fortunate, through surfing, to be getting to know some of them. The poet Gary Snyder writes about a notion of “new natives” in his book of essays, “The Practice of the Wild,” first published in 1990. In almost any other writer’s hands, the idea of “new natives”—people who are not indigenous to North America, but who come to a kind of understanding of the land here—would quickly descend into cultural appropriation. But Snyder walks a line that coaxes a Native American spirit, all the while acknowledging the calamity brought upon the original people by Westward expansion. Surfing is an artform for “new natives,” for people who would read the water as if divining signs of how to move in the natural world. Carpinteria’s top shapers, Matt Moore (Rincon Designs) and Al Merrick (Channel Islands Surfboards), have done that—crafting surfboards at the highest level, informed by the particulars of the ocean environment in their long-ago adopted homeland. The crew here generally ride one or the other label (unless, like a few of us, they shape their own). Reverence is essential, impressions from the surroundings finding expression in Chumash design incorporated on MM’s surfboard logo, and in the collective experience of the local surfing community.

The surf/skate connection and a reckoning

On Sept. 22, Doug “Papa G” Galati, Peter Bonning and Jason Lesh of the Carpinteria Skate Foundation showed the documentary of the late three-time World Champion Andy Irons, “Kissed by God,” generously hosted by the Alcazar Theatre. Donations in lieu of admission tickets went towards the realization of

a long-held vision for a skate park in Carpinteria. The skate park is essential for youth development here, not only for the flow-state-inducing practice of skateboarding—an activity that gives those who might not be interested in more conventional sports focus and goals—but also a very real training opportunity for the kids in the community who want to push their surfing to the highest levels, as wave riding and skateboarding are inextricably linked. Conceptual plans are on the Foundation’s website; consider donating to the next generation of shredding girls and boys at “Kissed by God” wasn’t a surf film as much as it was a look at the ravages of untreated bi-polar disorder and unchecked drug use. Andy Irons was a phenomenal

surfing talent, but he died alone in a hotel room of a drug overdose in 2010. The film is heartbreaking as his family and friends share memories of him, trying to puzzle out what they could-have or should-have done differently. But as anyone who has had a family member or friend in the grips of mental illness or addiction knows, intervention is a fraught path. Christian Beamish is an Editor at the Coastal View News. He is also the former Associate Editor of The Surfer’s Journal and author of “The Voyage of the Cormorant” (Patagonia Books 2012) about sailing into Baja aboard his self-built, 18-foot beach boat by sail and oar. He lives in Carpinteria with his wife and two young children.

SSL203-01.01bw 100418

At a fundraising celebration, on Saturday, Sept. 29, Lynda Fairly presented a check for $1 million to the Carpinteria Arts Center, bringing the three-year capital campaign to a close having raised nearly $400,000 more than the $3.1 million goal. The money will be used to purchase and renovate the former Cajun Kitchen restaurant at 865 Linden Ave. “Lynda’s generous contribution staggered the community,” said Arts Center Board Member David Powdrell. “Her donation to the Carpinteria Arts Center brings total cash and check contributions to $3,499,938. In addition, dozens of contractors, designers, sub-contractors and local tradespeople have donated $401,050 in in-kind donations… It’s a modern day barn raising!” Because of the community support, the Arts Center has paid off its purchase-loan three years early, reducing allocated interest expenses by $123,773. The campaign began in December 2015 with leadership gifts from the Board of

Directors and other volunteers. Since then, more than 250 donors made gifts and pledges. The new facility, expected to open in early 2019, will feature a professional storefront gallery featuring local and regional artists and multiple workshop spaces for visual arts, music, crafts, ceramics, and other classes. There will also be a serving kitchen and integrated open courtyard space, ideal for holding both private and community-wide events as well as art programs, concerts, films, dance and more. executive Director rebecca Stebbins noted “We are so grateful for our Board of Directors and the more than 150 volunteers who are the lifeblood of our organization. Our staff and volunteers are second to none.” She noted that the Carpinteria Arts Center has received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition from the u.S. Congress, as well as a resolution from the Carpinteria City Council to celebrate this outstanding accomplishment.

Avo Ale

The official beer of the California Avocado Festival is a crushable amber ale from Rincon Brewery, tapping in at 4.6 percent alcohol by volume. Avo Ale is brewed with toasted avocado pits, select German malts and domestic Tettnanger hops, featuring a light body with up-front graininess, flavors of toasted bread and a slight nuttiness from the toasted avocado pits. Restrained hopping rates lend just enough bitterness to balance Avo Ale’s malty backbone and leave pleasant notes of earth and spice on the finish. Avo Ale can be found on draft at all festival booths and available on draft or in limited edition commemorative bottles at Rincon Brewery.

How long can YOU hold a 10 lb. bag of avocados??


Starting Saturday morning you can stroll over to the Children’s Area to the Best Dressed Avocado booth. Children can show their creativity using all kinds of fabric, stickers, eyes, pipe cleaners, gems, and glitter and anything you can think of in dressing up an avocado. They are welcome to take their avocado with them or leave for viewing until the judging Sunday, Oct. 7 at 2 pm. A special thanks to our sponsor Rancho Santa Cecilia for supplying the avocados!


A contest for all ages! If your most requested recipe is to “bring on the guacamole,” join the fun and festivities at the festival. When it comes to guacamole, you’ll find the “quest for the best” in seaside Carpinteria. Be creative with the presentation! Food enthusiasts and south coast chefs are invited to enter their favorite version of the green stuff and see how the recipe measures up to the competition. “The taste” is only one criteria for winning; presentation, texture and originality will play an important part as well. Taste-Presentation Prizes will be awarded to the first-place winners at the Guac & Grotto Stage on Sunday, Oct. 7th. Sub-missions are due by 11 am; judging starts at 12 pm. Applications can be found on under contests.



Who has the largest avocado in the land? The annual California Avocado Festival is putting out a call for the largest avocado in the kingdom! Participants are encouraged to take to the avocado orchard and seek out the oversized fruits of their labor and join in the competition. There are no limits to the number of entries. Avocados become the property of the festival and will be auctioned off at the Guac & Grotto Stage on Sunday at noon. Proceeds benefit the Carpinteria Future Farmers of America (FFA). Applications can be found on under contests. Deadline is Saturday, Oct. 6, at 10:15 am with avocado at the George Bliss Expo tent (corner of Carpinteria Ave. & Linden).

Today, she is a specialist for the nonprofit Children’s Resource and Referral in Santa Barbara and a freelance graphic designer based in Carpinteria. What is Cervera’s favorite way to eat avocados? She likes to eat them with just a little bit of salt, and that’s it. “I’m from Mexico and you know, we love avocados.

Nadia is of Ukranian-Canadian descent and while you might see her slinging avocados at the Santa Barbara Farmer’s Market, she is also the founder and owner of Sage Hill Farm, a small organic poultry farm. “I have chickens, turkeys, heritage turkeys, rabbit, ducks, quail and Guinea fowl,” said Nadia. “I’ve been at the farmers market for over 30 years. I started selling flowers, then certified organic avocados, and then as the business grew, my poultry products.” Nadia is also an English as a Second Language teacher at the Children’s Project of Carpinteria. “I’ve always been a teacher. I used to teach Spanish and now I’m so honored to be able to serve what I have considered the marginalized in the community, helping people to have more control of their lives through language,” said Nadia. “It’s a complete balance. Teaching and market.” The honorary chair title was a surprise for Nadia. “It came out of nowhere,” she said. “It will be interesting to participate and get an inside view of the nuts and bolts of the festival.” Nadia is also looking forward to promoting the Avocado Festival with the Latino and Hispanic population in Carpinteria. The VanWingerdens know Carpinteria avocados well. “Carpinteria avocados are special,” said Ed. “We can leave them on the trees longer than most areas, especially compared to warmer climates like San Diego. So they have a higher oil content and it’s a more flavorful piece of fruit.”

Ed and Nadia VanWingerden

Ed and Nadia VanWingerden have built a life around family and agriculture in the Carpinteria Valley. This year, the VanWingerdens will be the 32nd Annual California Avocado Festival’s honorary chairs. “I’m honored, by all means,” said Ed. “Avocados are a big part of Carpinteria and it’s great to be amongst past honorary chairs.” The VanWingerdens planted their first five acres of avocados in 1980 as a buffer for their flower nurseries. Today, they grow 50 acres of commercial avocados, 45 of which are certified organic. Originally from Holland, Ed immigrated to Carpinteria in 1967 at the age of 11.

An avo-infused poster Growing up in Hermosillo, Sonora, Evangelina Cervera ate avocados daily. “They were part of my diet since I was born, I love them,” she said. Here in Carpinteria, Cervera gets a taste of home every time she has a bite of a Carpinterianative avocado, which she says taste just like the ones grown in her native town in northern Mexico. This year’s 32nd Annual California Avocado Festival poster, designed by Cervera, is a celebration of life in Carpinteria—the layered mountain-scape, the rolling ocean waves and the everpresent sun. At the center of it all is the avocado. Cervera’s design was selected by silent ballot from
