Hass Avocado Board calls for nominations
With a new year comes a new opportunity for passionate avocado industry members to consider serving on the Hass Avocado Board (HAB) in one of 12 board positions. Annual board nominations provide industry members with the opportunity to take an active role in helping HAB to promote the consumption of Hass avocados in the United States. HAB has played an important role in making avocados the envy of the produce industry by increasing consumption to 8.32 lbs. per capita for 2020 in the U.S. – up from an average of 1.6 lbs. per capita in the 1990s – an increase of 420%. Consumption in the total fruit category increased by only 9.4% over this same period. The deadline to submit a nomination form is March 30. The new term will begin on Nov. 1, 2021 with members and alternates oﬃcially seated at the board meeting on Dec. 1, 2021. To submit a nomination and for additional details, visit hassavocadoboard.com/nominations.

Two applicants pass to next round for a cannabis retail storefront on Santa Claus Lane
Two applicants for a retail cannabis storefront on Santa Claus Lane have successfully passed Phase 2 of the merit-based selection process conducted by Santa Barbara County’s Planning and Development Department. Business operations proposals submitted by the applicants were reviewed by a third-party evaluator, HdL, and the county’s Business Licensing Team. In this review, only two applicants were approved to move to Phase 3 in the selection process for the Toro Canyon/Summerland Community Plan Area (CPA). Only one or less retail
shops will be given a permit for this area. Both applicants seek to open cannabis storefronts in the Padaro Village Shops. The applicant named 3823 SCL, LLC has applied for 3823 Santa Claus Lane; and the other applicant, Haven XV, LLC, has applied for 3825 Santa Claus Lane, Unit B. These applicants achieved an aggregate score of 85% or higher and will advance to Phase 3, where applications will be reviewed, scored and ranked based on the Neighborhood Compatibility Plan and site inspections.
The result of Phase 3 will be a ranked list of applications in each of the CPAs. Per the ordinance, only the number one ranked applicant in each of the CPAs will be invited to start the permit and business license application process. Santa Barbara County hosted six virtual community meetings in July to receive feedback and answer questions about the amended Cannabis Business License (Chapter 50) regulating cannabis retail storefront licensing. Chapter 50 (b) limits the number of storefront retail licenses to no more than
one in each of the county’s six CPAs. CPAs are located in unincorporated Santa Barbara and do not reflect zoning and permitting within the cities of Buellton, Carpinteria, Goleta, Guadalupe, Lompoc, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and Solvang. The public can continue to submit feedback by sending questions or comments in writing via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, by leaving a voice message at (805) 568-2777 or by visiting cannabis.countyofsb.org/retail.sbc and filling out the online survey.

Care for the seals
If you care about the environment you are probably aware that harbor seals live here. Some do not care. On Saturday, a fisherman did not care, nor did he care that he was violating a City Code by entering the closed section of beach that the seals call home. Nor did he care that he was violating a Federal Law by disturbing the seals. Nor did he care that his young son was learning to ignore the law. He was informed that his actions could well lead to the harm of newborn pups so there was a reason for the law, and he still did not care. I wonder if he would care if he learned that the next morning there was an abandoned pup calling for its Mom, and two days later that pup was too weak to call, or to fight the waves as it was washed down the coast. Someone cared enough to call Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute but by then it was too late. We have a great many in this town who do care about our wildlife, and about loss. Many care enough to learn that rules and laws have a reason. But here, in this small town that is fighting desperately to hang on to its unique heritage of beaches, mountains, creeks and wildlife, laws seem not to be enough. We must all care.

Our open spaces are priceless
Attention City Council members and citizens of Carpinteria: You may wonder why many of us are adamantly opposed to the hotel planned for our quaint train depot parking lot. I ask you to take a moment and sit down to study the photography in recent issues of Coastal View News and Carpinteria Magazine. You will notice in these photos that vistas abound. Then, drive north to Goleta and Pismo Beach on surface roads. Where are their views? Take note that their views are obstructed by concrete buildings and cars. Carpinteria is one of the few little coastal gems left. When we trash it with too many “resorts” as a last resort toward gaining tax dollars, we’ve destroyed our gem. Let Carpinterians vote on this issue as it is our home and our city.

CUSD projects reopening of high school and middle school in late March
BY EVELYN SPENCE
Carpinteria High School and Carpinteria Middle School are aiming to reopen in a hybrid learning schedule beginning after spring break, Superintendent Diana Rigby confirmed at the Carpinteria Unified School Board of trustees’ meeting on Feb. 23. All secondary schools – including CHS and CMS – can reopen for partial in-person instruction once Santa Barbara County enters the red tier and remains in that tier for five days. To qualify for the red tier, the county must see less than seven positive Covid-19 cases per 100,000 residents. As of Feb. 23, Rigby said the county is seeing 16 positive cases per 100,000 residents. “We’re making good progress,” Rigby said. “We are expecting that the county will move into the red tier mid-March. We have our spring break, and then on March 29, we hope that we will be able to open in a hybrid schedule at the middle school and the high school.” She added the administrators are in the process of discussing what hybrid schedules might look like for students returning to in-person learning at CHS and CMS.
Currently, the plan is for students to be divided into two cohorts, A and B. Cohort A will be attending in-person learning on Monday and Tuesday mornings while Cohort B will be learning over Zoom. On Thursdays and Fridays, the two cohorts will switch. Rigby clarified that the two cohorts will still be learning simultaneously. “I really hope we do open up after spring break, that we’re back in the red, that we can get our secondary students back in the classroom,” said Board member Andy Sheaffer.
Aliso principal to be reassigned, decided in closed session vote
In a closed session, Carpinteria Unified School Board voted 4-0 to reassign Dr. Michelle Fox, removing her from her position as principal of Aliso and Summerland elementary schools. Dr. Fox will be reassigned to a separate position for the 2021-2022 school year beginning June 30, 2021. Also during closed session, CUSD trustees voted unanimously not to keep on four employees currently on probation.
SCHOOL NOTES Summerland School prepares for temporary relocation to Main School campus
For the duration of the 2021-2022 school year, Summerland School’s 45 students and 8.5 staff members will temporarily relocate to the Carpinteria Main School campus.

Cate School remembers Luella Zerr
The Cate School community spent the past several weeks paying tribute to Luella Zerr since her passing on Jan. 29, with many alumni and current students reflecting on Zerr’s loving personality and profound impact in their lives and the larger Cate community. Cate School students and teachers got to know Zerr while she lived at Shepard Place Apartments in Carpinteria. Students would visit with the residents and play Bingo games together during weekly volunteer trips into town every Wednesday night.

Parent expresses concern regarding principal removal
Monica J. Solorzano, a parent of two children at Aliso Elementary, spoke strongly against the board’s decision not to keep Dr. Michelle Fox – principal at Aliso and Summerland elementary schools – in her position. “As an active CUSD parent, I would like to strenuously object to this course of action, and request that parents and teachers be given time to express their voices on this important matter,” Solorzano said. “(Dr. Fox) has been an exemplary advocate for students and families at Aliso and a present and always visible symbol of the school’s support for our families ... She’s responsive to parent outreach, thoughtful about issues of inclusion and always open to feedback and constructive criticism. Most importantly, the students know and trust her,” she added. “It has been a year of so much upheaval for so many of us. For our kids who have been forced to adapt to so many changes, one constant – sometimes the only constant – has been their teachers and their principal ... To shatter the consistency of our school leadership seems ill-advised and certain to only cause further challenges for CUSD families.”
Solorzano further encouraged the board to give parents the opportunity to voice their opinions on the matter. “This is the future of our children in our community, and we deserve the right to have more of a say in it,” she said.
County to set aside vaccines for schools
Beginning March 1, each county will set aside 10% of the vaccine doses for school staff, according to Rigby. “County Public Health is trying to determine what the logistics are related to the 10% of the vaccines, and who is in the school group, the childcare group, which will have priority to receive the vaccines first,” she said. “What I would like to note is that we all know the vaccine supply continues to be limited, and we were notified that the allotment of the Moderna vaccine was delayed due to severe weather conditions ... We all know currently that the vaccine supply is limited, but we are anxious to ensure that our educators and our childcare providers can be vaccines.” Editor’s note: Following the meeting, Superintendent Rigby confirmed a March 29 reopening date for CHS and CMS in an announcement to parents.
Vaccine distribution begins for TK-12 educators in SB County
Governor Newsom announced last week that beginning March 1, each county will set aside 10% of their vaccine doses for school staff. That process has begun, and during the week of March 1, public school districts, charter and private school education staff in Santa Barbara County have had access to approximately 1,100 vaccination appointments set aside by the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department in conjunction with Lompoc Valley Medical Center, according to a release from the Santa Barbara County Education Office. Individual appointments must be made upon invitation from a school district, charter or private school and are being coordinated with all public districts, charters schools and private schools in Santa Barbara County by the Santa Barbara County Education Office. Specific invitations for vaccine appointments are being distributed through the local school districts, charter and private schools this week. Due to the vaccine shortage, the first grouping of vaccines has been allocated for those individuals serving the county’s most vulnerable students who require support that does not allow for physical distancing, are medically fragile and are often unable to wear masks. After those appointments are filled, a second round of vaccine appointments will be provided for eligible staff with significant contact with others in-person, and/or close proximity to others, and mixing across multiple stable groups and/or locations. Each district, charter or private school will determine, for their context, which staff are included in this group. This process will continue for this week until the approximately 1,100 vaccine appointments have been scheduled. Invitations to schedule an appointment

will be distributed by districts, charter and private schools. Once an invitation is received, instructions on how to schedule and register will be provided. There may be information circulating that an alternate path for making appointments is by calling 2-1-1. This information is inaccurate, the release says. Vaccination plans for TK-12 education staff have not yet been announced for appointments after March 4, 5, and 6. Vaccination appointments for childcare staff and higher education employees are being handled through a separate process and more details will be released by the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department at a later date.

The pandemic has reduced the number of volunteers at the overlook. Sealwatch reminds visitors to protect others by wearing a mask, staying distanced and limiting time at the viewing area when it is crowded. This report covers Feb. 22 - 28.
High Adult Count
27 by Sunday evening, when several visitors were treated to a birth.
Natural History Notes
Pups learn to catch shrimp and other small invertebrates as they begin weaning. They stay close to adults when young and soon learn to catch fish. Harbor seals grow so quickly that a pup is not readily distinguishable from a small adult after two or three months. Females tend to range smaller in size and weight than males: about 4 to 5 ½ feet and 110 to 330 pounds compared to 4 ½ to 6 ½ feet and 150 to 375 pounds for males. Because of the overlap in size, it’s not possible to tell the sex unless their bellies are visible.
Harbor seal protection
The federal Marine Mammal Protection Act prohibits harassing or disturbing marine mammals in the wild. Disturbance refers to acts that have the potential to disturb a marine mammal in the wild by disrupting behavioral patterns, including, but not limited to, migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding or sheltering. Harbor seals need rest on the beach, but they are relatively defenseless on land and flee promptly from threats. This law provides for a substantial fine or imprisonment for violations. The city of Carpinteria reinforces harbor seal protection for six months of the year; the beach closure ordinance helps avoid inadvertent disturbances by people who may not be aware of the seals.
Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California
The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. Volunteers needed. Call (805) 684-2247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.
THE LAY OF THE LAND MIKE WONDOLOWSKI Sometimes a problem is so huge and so far beyond our immediate control that it seems impossible to tackle. Why bother doing anything when our tiny effort can’t have any real effect? Besides, change is hard. One such problem has been in and out of the news for decades – depletion of the ozone layer. Almost 50 years ago, scientists around the world figured out that the ozone layer was being damaged by a family of “wonder chemicals” called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). These chemicals were used in all types of products from military systems to refrigerators to cans of hairspray. At first, of course, there was disagreement and disbelief by some. Then in 1985 a paper was published in the journal Nature that shocked the scientific community and the world by reporting evidence of an ozone hole over Antarctica. At ground level, ozone is a pollutant that is damaging to people’s health and is the main ingredient in smog. However, about 20 miles above the Earth in the stratosphere there is a layer of ozone that is critical to protecting our health by filtering the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Without that protection, we would be subject to increased skin cancer, cataracts and weakened immune systems. We would also see reductions in crop yields and damage to the marine food chain. So once it became clear that the ozone layer was being damaged by our actions, it was obvious this was a serious threat to people all around the world. In a remarkable demonstration of effective global cooperation, the Montreal Protocol was finalized in 1987. It is a global agreement to protect the stratospheric ozone layer by phasing out the production and consumption of ozone-depleting substances (ODS) including CFCs. I won’t get into the chemistry of how CFCs and other ODS react with ozone (even though it is really interesting!), but an important point is that once we reduce our emissions of these chemicals, the ozone layer will recover in about 50 years to its full natural level and continue giving us its critical protection. This recovery is measurable, and progress was being made, but then we hit a snag. Starting in 2014 there was an unexpected increase in emissions of a chemical named CFC-11, even though it had been banned since 2010 by the Montreal Protocol. Researchers determined about half of that illegal pollution was from eastern China. This increase continued until 2017. Since 2017, there has been a significant decrease in illicit CFC-11 production, most likely due to increased rigorous regulation enforcement in China and elsewhere. Now we are back on track for the ozone layer to be healthy again and the ozone hole to be closed in the next 50 years. I look at this entire story as a learning experience for the world, summarized like this: First, there was scientific understanding of a problem and its cause, which generated a global collective will to make
We don’t need to wait for more global treaties. We can take meaningful actions ourselves now to reduce our own carbon footprint. We can take direct actions such as installing solar panels, converting from gas to electric appliances, increasing vehicle fuel mileage (or going hybrid or electric) and increasing energy efficiency at home.
the necessary changes. Then action was taken that included regulation and changes to how we do things. The process put in place worked, including identification and elimination of “cheating.” At the beginning there were some who did not believe the science or said the change would be too hard or too expensive. They were wrong. We now face the nasty big brother of ozone depletion: climate change, which has potential impacts even more severe than increased UV radiation, threatening the health of nearly every human, animal and plant on Earth. Addressing climate change is the biggest challenge faced by our generation and the next. We have a scientific understanding of the problem and its cause. Now we need to work to create the collective will to make the necessary changes. We don’t need to wait for more global treaties. We can take meaningful actions ourselves now to reduce our own carbon footprint. We can take direct actions such as installing solar panels, converting from gas to electric appliances, increasing vehicle fuel mileage (or going hybrid or electric) and increasing energy efficiency at home. We can also take meaningful, less direct actions like buying local products that require minimal shipping and buying products with the least amount of disposable packaging. We can also support city, county, state and national programs for reductions in carbon emissions. Change can indeed be hard. But the solution to climate change is for everyone to make changes for ourselves. These tiny efforts summed up are the only way we can achieve the necessary global change.

She took breaks from her sick children and husband to ensure that my mom was breathing. She checked her oxygen levels and called an ambulance when they dropped critically low. With pandemic fatigue wearing on, I longed for new inspiration. I want to meet and highlight everyday heroes like my mom’s neighbor. I started the #carpcares portrait project as a personal way to honor the people giving back in our community. It’s a way to remember that there is selflessness, beauty and love amidst the tragedies of this past year. I asked for nominations on the Carp Swap Facebook page and through my Instagram. One of the first nominations I received was from Autumn Fiore Palm for Carly Harrod Bass and Aja Forner. Carly and Aja saw the needs of children at Canalino Elementary School for clothing items and new shoes. They created The Closet @ Canalino Facebook group to request specific donations. They receive the donations and distribute them to the children and families in need. During the pandemic, they have expanded their services, sourcing equipment to keep children active at home and providing supplies for teachers, food items and more.

Assessing water security vs. water marketing Should local supplies from the state aqueduct be sold outside the county?
BY MELINDA BURNS
It’s not long ago that Lake Cachuma, the main water source on the South Coast, was in danger of going dry in a seven-year drought. Water agencies from Carpinteria to Goleta spent millions of dollars scrambling to buy surplus state aqueduct water from around the state to avert a local shortage. They did so not only because their groundwater levels were plunging and Cachuma was failing, but because their yearly allocations from the aqueduct had dropped to zero. Yet this week, on Tuesday, March 2, the water managers serving Santa Maria, Buellton, Guadalupe, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Montecito and the Santa Ynez and Carpinteria valleys asked the county Board of Supervisors to grant them the right to sell their state water allocations outside the county – not permanently, but potentially for years at a stretch. “As water purveyors, we need to have the ﬂexibility to do what we need to do,” said Joshua Haggmark, Santa Barbara water resources manager. “The county, up to now, has said we can’t sell water out of the county. If we can’t use it, we just lose it. It creates an additional ﬁnancial hardship for our customer.” For Santa Barbara and Montecito, the big change since the last drought is that they are jointly paying for a $72 million desalination plant that the city built on its waterfront in 2017. With plenty of that water on hand, they don’t need so much state water for the foreseeable future. “We need to offset that cost somewhere,” Haggmark said. “This isn’t selling our state water forever; it’s leasing our allocation.” Together, the eight water agencies make up the Central Coast Water Authority, which owns and operates the pipeline from the California Aqueduct in Kern County to Lake Cachuma. Because the county, not the CCWA, holds the pipeline contract with the state Department of Water Resources – a sore point with Haggmark and other water agency managers – they have to get the county’s permission to loosen the water marketing rules. Currently under the contract, only exchanges of state water, and not outright sales, are allowed: the price is limited by the state and buyers must return the water to the sellers. South Coast water

Water managers want the ﬂexibility to sell state water in wet years because, they say, they have nowhere to store it. But a county staﬀ report for Tuesday’s meeting advises the board not to allow sales of state water outside the county, noting that allocations from Cachuma to the South Coast and Santa Ynez Valley were severely cut during the drought of 2011 to 2018. “We’re really frustrated with the county’s position,” Haggmark said. “They don’t have any knowledge of water planning or responsibility to ratepayers.” Supervisor Das Williams, who represents eastern Santa Barbara, Montecito and the Carpinteria Valley, said the managers won’t say whom they want to sell their state water to. “The response we get is, ‘It’s none of your business,’” he said. “Is this really going to help the water supply, or could this potentially hurt it? “There is plenty of storage in Cachuma. We don’t want short-sighted decisions to be made that could lead to water being transported out of the county when we might need it here. When you are tempted to liquidate water for money, it

puts additional stress on the groundwater basin that sometimes you cannot aﬀord. Without the county, there’s no way to guard the interests of the whole region.” Up north, Santa Maria, the largest state water contractor in the county, has an entitlement twice as large as the South Coast’s and has long sought more ﬂexibility in water marketing rules. During the recent drought, Santa Maria sold state water to the South Coast. Twenty-four of the 29 state water contractors in California have already approved the new water marketing rules; Santa Barbara County is one of the last holdouts. That may make it harder for CCWA members to buy extra supplies of state water in the next drought, said Shad Springer, Santa Maria’s director of utilities. “It’s not that the city has immediate plans to sell water out of the county or anywhere else,” he said. “An important aspect of this is that as these (rules) are being adopted by other water contractors, the old tools may not be available to us. There may not be a market out there where we could import additional water from the existing exchange program.” Last month, in a bid to win the Board of Supervisors’ approval, the CCWA agreed that each member would have the “ﬁrst right of refusal” if another wanted to sell state water outside the county. Lavagnino said he likes that idea. “I have no beef with the CCWA,” he said. “I want to make sure that somebody else inside the county gets the oﬀer ﬁrst.”
At Tuesday’s hearing, the board also considered whether to extend the county’s contract with state Water Resources for another 50 years. The current contract is set to expire in 2038, when the eight water agencies – that is, the ratepayers – will pay oﬀ their debt for the $575 million aqueduct branch to Cachuma. The CCWA favors extending the contract so that any future costs connected to the aqueduct can be spread out over decades. But the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN), and AquAlliance, two watchdog groups, are suing to stop the 50-year extension. They say that the state’s environmental review failed to consider the cost of future aqueduct-related projects for ratepayers. Over several decades, the department has considered diﬀerent plans for improving the health of the fragile Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, where massive pumps divert water into the state aqueduct. Most recently, the department is proposing to build a $16 billion tunnel under the Delta to protect this critical water source from climate change and seismic threats. The C-WIN lawsuit notes that historically, the state aqueduct was built on “paper water” and has failed to reliably deliver even half of what the contractors, including Santa Maria and the South Coast agencies, are paying for. A Delta project would not provide a single drop of new aqueduct water for Santa Barbara County, said Carolee Krieger, a Montecito resident and the founder of C-WIN. “We would be vulnerable to anything the Department of Water Resources wants to build, and we would have to pay our share of it,” she said. “We don’t need to do this. By 2038, we will have paid oﬀ the pipeline, and we’re entitled to the water we’ve paid for, indeﬁnitely. There is no new water in the system.” The CCWA has voted to opt out of the Delta project, but Krieger is not convinced: the project itself has not been approved yet. “What if they change their mind?” she asked.

Deputies recover two stolen vehicles and arrest seven suspects
On Tuesday, March 2, Sheriff’s deputies arrested seven suspects at two locations for a string of theft related crimes in Carpinteria, Santa Barbara and Goleta. At approximately 6:30 a.m. on March 2, deputies responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area of La Meza Plaza and Santa Rosa Lane in Carpinteria. When they arrived, they contacted 23-year-old Jason Orth of Carpinteria near the vehicle that was not registered to him. Deputies in the Santa Barbara area checked with the registered owner in the 5300 block of Traci Drive and found that the vehicle had been stolen, but not yet reported. Orth was arrested for possession of controlled substance (misdemeanor), possession of stolen property (misdemeanor), vehicle theft (felony) and three warrants violations of probation. Deputies in Carpinteria connected Orth to a hotel in the 5200 block of Calle Real and responded there for follow-up where they contacted six additional suspects. During that contact, deputies found hundreds of dollars’ worth of stolen items including mail, luggage, bicycles, tools and electronics. Deputies arrested all six suspects at the hotel, and they are identified as: 28-year-old Jaclynn

Tyler Adams, left, and Jaclynn Blackwell, both of Carpinteria, were among the seven arrested for a string of theft related crimes. Blackwell of Carpinteria; 25-year-old Corey Thomas of Lompoc; 30-year-old Luisa Urive of Santa Barbara; 32-yearold Alissa Diessner of Santa Barbara; 22-year-old Tyler Adams of Carpinteria; and 31-year-old Edgar Beltran of Long Beach. All six were transported to the Santa Barbara County Southern Branch Jail and booked for possession of stolen property (felony), conspiracy (felony), possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor), and possession of a controlled substance (misdemeanor). Thomas and Adams were booked for the additional charge of possession of a narcotic controlled substance (misdemeanor).
Supervisors delay a decision on how and where surplus water can be sold The Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 on Tuesday to approve an extension of the county’s state water contract for 50 years, saying it would ultimately save ratepayers money. “The ability to stretch costs over time is a real benefit,” said Supervisor Gregg Hart, who represents the Goleta Valley and western Santa Barbara. Eight water agencies in Santa Barbara County, from the Carpinteria Valley to the city of Santa Maria, presently import water through the California Aqueduct. By 2035, their ratepayers will have paid off the $575 million construction debt for the pipeline that county voters approved in 1991 on the heels of a six-year drought; it extends from the aqueduct in Kern County to Lake Cachuma. But reconstruction and maintenance of the aqueduct system itself costs the state Department of Water Resources $350 million per year, and those costs will inevitably continue past 2035, Ray Stokes, executive director of the Central Coast Water Authority (CCWA), representing the eight agencies, told the board. The share of those costs for Santa Barbara County ratepayers after 2035 will likely be only about 1%, Stokes said. Board Chairman Bob Nelson, who represents Lompoc and Orcutt, cast the sole vote against the 50-year extension. “It was not worth it to me to subject county taxpayers to that risk on their behalf,” he said after the hearing. “The county is the backstop for liability. What is the potential blank check that we’re giving the state?” Carolee Krieger, a Montecito resident and the founder of the California Water Impact Network, a watchdog group, told the board that a contract extension would pave the way for the Department of Water Resources to impose billions of dollars in new debt for “unwanted infrastructure” on state water contractors – including the cost of a proposed $16 billion tunnel

County extends state water contract to 2085 BY MELINDA BURNS
through the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. C-WIN has sued the state to stop the contract extension. Also, on Tuesday, the board postponed a decision on whether to allow temporary sales of surplus state water outside the county, pending further negotiations with the CCWA. Currently, the water can be leased but not sold outright. To date, with the exception of Santa Maria, the water agencies in this county have been buyers, not sellers of supplemental state water. Supervisor Das Williams, who represents the South Coast from eastern Santa Barbara to Carpinteria, asked whether Santa Maria planned to sell water to developers in Nipomo, just across the county line, a move he suggested would increase urban sprawl and exacerbate the county’s jobs-housing imbalance. Nelson said the city was required to sell water every year to Nipomo under a groundwater basin court settlement: both communities share the same basin. Nipomo developers have approached the city in the past, looking to buy state water supplies, but no such deal has been made yet. In an interview after the hearing, Nelson said that Santa Maria, the largest importer of state water in the county, has sometimes refused to supply water to new development in Orcutt unless the property is annexed to the city. If Santa Maria now wants something from the county, Nelson said, it should stop stifling growth in unincorporated areas. “They’re happy for us to continue to be their bedroom community,” Nelson said. “I’d appreciate it if they were a better neighbor.” At Tuesday’s hearing, Joshua Haggmark, Santa Barbara’s acting Public Works director, told the board that his city wants the right to sell state water outside the county not for development, but to help other agencies replenish their

Later in the day at approximately 12:30 p.m., deputies responded to Kingston Avenue in Goleta after a vehicle was reported stolen. Two hours later, deputies located the stolen vehicle in the area of Princeton and Somerset in Goleta, not far from the hotel. Deputies located items in the stolen vehicle that linked the cases to the previous calls and suspects. All suspects were released without bail pursuant to the local court’s extension of Emergency Rule 4, which sets bail for all misdemeanor and low-level offenses at $0 for the duration of the statewide Covid-19 state of emergency.

PHOTOS BY BJOERN FREIHERR In between late January’s rain showers, I was able to use my drone to capture Carpinteria. From above, the organization of Carpinteria’s city center takes shape. Roadways, schools and neighborhoods appear as geometric forms and grid-like designs. Can you tell where these photos were taken?

STEWART’S DE-ROOTING & PLUMBING
We Are Proud Supporters of Warrior Athletics Locally Owned. Lic. # 375514
Warrior student-athletes Hugo Alvarado, Eduardo Vences and Kate Cooney were the first to break a yearlong stretch of athletic inactivity for the CHS Warriors. They completed a three-mile course at this weekend’s Citrus Coast League cross country time trials.
Warriors return to action in a monumental team effort Saturday, Feb. 27, marked a milestone in the Warriors’ return to athletic competition. Carpinteria High School studentathletes broke an almost year-long streak of Covid-related inactivity when they competed at the Citrus Coast League cross country time trials at the Fillmore Farm. The opportunity to represent CHS on the course went from impossible to possible within a matter of hours on Saturday. In a positive and professional showing of support, administrators and coaches came together and ensured that every aspect of the day ran smoothly for the student athletes. At 9:45 a.m. on Saturday morning, Ventura County Public Health granted Carpinteria High School permission to cross counties, something previously not allowed due to Covid restrictions, and participate in the time trials at Fillmore.
Between then and the start of the race at 1:50 p.m., many hands worked quickly behind the scenes enabling the runners to take their marks at the start of the course. CHS Principal Gerardo Cornejo, Athletic Director Pat Cooney and CHS athletics staff across the board all worked together to gain permission from all parties both at home and away, secure travel arrangements for the students, distribute uniforms and collaborate with Fillmore administration to ensure that every logistical detail of the event was coordinated. Before long, the Warriors were off, and athletes Hugo Alvarado, Eduardo Vences and Kate Cooney set foot on the course for the first time since March 13, 2020. All teams were scheduled to race at different race time slots, and ran in wave starts instead of competing head to head. Overall times were combined after
all individual teams competed, and due to short notice, only a handful of student athletes were able to compete. Kate Cooney came in eighth place at 26:10; Eduardo Vences came in 10th at 20:16; and Hugo Alvarado came in 15th at 21:29. “It was both exciting and emotional to see our kids competing and enjoying Kate Cooney came in eighth place overall at themselves after al26:10. most a full year away More action is soon to follow as CHS from competition,” said CHS cross country coach Angel Silva. “The cross is now cleared to resume inter-team country gods were on our side on Sat- competitions and outdoor high-contact sports, football and water polo. urday morning.”

Walking for good health
WELLNESS WARRIOR LEAH HARDING Have you heard the recommendation that we need 10,000 steps a day for good health? Guess what? Just like the eight cups of water a day recommendation, it was made up! In fact, not only was it made up, but it was also a marketing ploy from a 1965 Japanese pedometer. The company name was Manpo-Kei which translates to “10,000 steps meter.” Since it was the first of its kind, the number stuck. Lucky for us, there are researchers out there who like to look at things like longevity and step correlation to see what the data actually says. A 2019 study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association looked to see if 10,000 steps really is the magic number. It was conducted over four years with 16,741 women aged 62 to 101, with an average age of 72. Here are the main points:
• Sedentary women averaged 2,700 steps a day • Mortality rate significantly decreased for women who averaged 4,400 steps per day • Mortality rates continued to decrease the more steps women averaged per day • Mortality rates leveled off for women who had steps averaging over 7,500 per day.
While this study was particular to older women and mortality and did not look at steps and weight loss, I still recommend most of my clients get at least 10,000 steps a day. You may be thinking, “Leah, you just said the data states anything over 7,500 doesn’t decrease mortality rates.” Great job paying attention! I still recommend 10,000 steps though, because getting that many steps means you are more active than not. Being more active will not only keep you healthier, but it will also help you get closer to your goals, which most often involves weight loss or getting “leaner.” Moving more, even at a slow pace, will burn more calories than just sitting on the couch. If you don’t have a fitness tracker, 10,000 steps can be hard to hit every day without focusing at least a bit of time and energy on it. To put it in simpler terms, 10,000 steps is the equivalent of walking about five miles. Fitness trackers are getting cheaper and better each year and are a helpful tool in the road to fitness. If you’re not ready
well. Which tracker is best depends on which features you’re looking to have. I think the Apple watch is much more of a watch or mini phone than a fitness tracker. The Fitbit is easy and can go high or low tech, although the software algorithms are not as accurate as a Garmin, Oura or Whoop. There are many more styles and types of trackers out there, of course. The last thing to consider when you start upping your walking is good old recovery. “From walking?!” you say. Yup. Even walking might be too much for some people. If you’re going from 1,000 steps a day to 10,000, it will be extremely new and taxing for your body. So, start small when upping your steps and shoot for an increase of about 1,000 steps per week. That means some days you may do 4,000 or 8,000 and some days you may still do 1,000. Overall, just keep walking to get a boost of health! Remember though, too much of a good thing can be bad. If you are walking more than 10-12,000 steps a day, plus a workout, that might be too much. Happy walking!

to commit to a smart tracker like Fitbit, a simple $15 pedometer from Amazon will do the trick just fine. If you have a phone and carry it around often, there are apps that can give you a good estimate of where your steps are. I have owned four Fitbits, an Apple watch and I now have an Oura ring as

Editor’s note: This nugget of Carpinteria history was originally published in the Summer 2016 edition of Carpinteria Magazine.
A city of two tales
In 1930, Carpinteria High School published a yearbook called the Chismahoo. The thin collection of black and white images showcasing the little school’s staff and student body contained a romantic tale entitled “The Legend of the Chismahoo.” Beneath the legend is the author’s name, Marjorie Lewis, class of 1930. Seemingly concocted in Lewis’ imagination to elicit drama and excitement around the school’s Warrior mascot, the “legend” inserts characters the likes of a dime store Western into a Romeo and Juliet-style tragedy. But teepees, warring tribes, braves, and maidens are the stuff of the Plains Indians, not the Chumash people native to Carpinteria. The inspiration for Lewis’ romantic tale, in which a fallen warrior leaps from Chismahoo mountain to be reunited with his love, is now long lost, but the tale has been reprinted in several CHS yearbooks and retold on the athletic fields. Its roots in local lore stretch 85 years deep. According to Julie Tumamait, who is dedicated to preserving the history of the Chumash, the Chumash do have a legend of Chismahoo, better known as the Legend of the Rainbow Bridge. It is their creation story, a richly colorful explanation for how the people came to be. A focal point of the legend is Chismahoo Mountain, or Tzchimoos in the Chumash language. Tumamait retold the story to Carpinteria Magazine.
The Legend of Tzchimoos
Hutash, the mother earth, planted seeds in the soil of a large island that later became the individual Channel Islands. She waited and soon enough people began to sprout from the earth. The earth mother provided the people with all the resources they needed to thrive—plants, animals, and water. Hutash’s husband, Sky Snake, who was the Milky Way, shot down a lightning bolt in order to give the people fire for warmth and cooking. Having all their needs met, the people multiplied and eventually the island became too crowded. Hutash decided she would build a bridge so that the island people could cross to the mainland, which was empty of people, and spread out comfortably. She created a rainbow that stretched from the island to a high mountaintop, called Tzchimoos (Chismahoo), near Mishopshno (now known as Carpinteria). Before inviting the people to cross, Hutash warned them not to look down. Many did, however, and became so dizzy that they fell into the water. To save them, Hutash transformed them into dolphins. Those that did not fall crossed the sea successfully and arrived at Tzchimoos. They climbed down the mountain and populated the area.
The Legend of Chismahoo
Imagined by Marjorie Lewis, Carpinteria High School 1930 Long ago, an Indian lived alone in his teepee on a high mountain. His was a lonely existence, and he often sat in front of his doorway smoking his long pipe, thinking sadly of his past life. Once he had been a great chief, head of a powerful tribe, but no longer was he looked up to by his people. In fact, few of them even knew he was alive and only a few of these ever paused in their work or pleasure to think about the old chief.
2006 CARPINTERIA MAGAZINE FILE PHOTO BY TED RHODES
The Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs holds its annual Sunrise Ceremony near dawn each March on the Sunday morning closest to the spring equinox. Held in Mishopshno Meadow̶ (Mishopshno is the Chumash Indian name for the Carpinteria area) the ceremony is based in Chumash custom and attendees are encouraged to share an ancestral tradition of their own during the ceremony. This year’s ceremony will take place virtually and be announced in the coming weeks. He was the last of a long line of illustrious chiefs, known for their honesty and fairness. His father and his father’s father, back as far as he or even the oldest members of the tribe could remember, had always brought their warriors home from victories until that terrible day when everything and everyone had gone against him. On that momentous day, on which his tribe was to go out to meet an equally strong and powerful tribe, if he returned victorious (and it was understood that he would return victorious or not at all), he was to marry the maiden whom he loved and who loved him. She was the most beautiful maiden in any of the tribes and every brave there longed to do wonderful feats so that he could claim her for his own. This certain chief, whose name was Chismahoo, started out confidently, promising his maiden that he would return before long, thinking little of the calamities in front of him. Right in the thick of the fight, the leader of the other tribe pretended he was escaping. Chismahoo started in pursuit, leaving the two tribes fighting. Soon he was out of sight of the battle and, just as he was passing through a dense thicket, four braves rose up, braves of his own tribe, who had long resented his power and whose leader coveted Chismahoo’s bride-to-be for himself. They had purposely laid this trap for Chismahoo so that they could go back to the tribe and boast that he had deserted his braves. For they had bound him securely. Also they were very influential members of the tribe and no one
would dare to doubt their word. CARPINTERIA Later on, Chismahoo, having been found and freed by a young lad of a neighboring tribe to whom he had been kind once, returned to his people. No one would believe him. In vain he asked them to remember his past bravery and to disbelieve the other braves.

The importance of home
IN THE NATUREHOOD NANCY BARON Since we moved into our home in the hills above Carpinteria more than a decade ago, we have had a large boisterous family of Acorn Woodpeckers as neighbors. They have lived here for many generations – much longer than us. Acorn Woodpeckers live in a colonial nest where they pile in and sleep together at night. On our property, their home happens to be in the top of a support utility pole at the foot of the driveway. In the evenings, I like to walk down the driveway, pick up the mail and look up at them sticking their heads out of their nest, peering down at me. “Waka waka waka,” they call. They never run out of things to say. Acorn Woodpeckers are unusual woodpeckers that live communally, stash acorns and breed cooperatively. At first glance, they look like a troupe of clowns, all alike, but with a little attention you can sort them out. The males have red crowns while females can be distinguished by a small red patch that looks like a pill box hat on the back of their heads. Their white eyes add to their clownlike appearance. Acorn woodpeckers love to party, swooping through the oak trees, swinging wildly on our feeders and splashing in the bird bath like kids at a pool – always making us laugh. They are noisy, gregarious and highly social. In fact, they literally cannot live without each other. “I love the colonial aspect of woodpeckers,” says Jesse Grantham, a retired biologist for US Fish and Wildlife Service, who lives in Ojai. “They help each other. There’s a reason for that. They need all the birds working together to collect and store acorns to survive through the winter.” The competition for acorns is fierce. “Everyone wants them.” The success of Acorn Woodpecker colonies depends on two things: a healthy stash of acorns for the winter and a nesting cavity in a tree (or power pole) that they have laboriously excavated with their jack-hammer beaks, one peck at a time. In winter they sleep together then spread out in spring when the breeding pairs take precedence. Acorn Woodpeckers are known for pockmarking trees and power poles with small holes to stash acorns – a communal cache known as a granary. In fall, they make forays over long distances looking for ripening acorns and keeping an eye on the neighbors, as they are territorial. Each colony has several “managers” who guard the granary while other members of the colony are out hunting and gathering. They fiercely protect the assembled acorns and dive bomb intruders. Managers move up and down the granary making sure each acorn fits snugly, so it’s not easily extracted by crows, jays, squirrels or other acorn lovers. Such granaries are carefully tended through generations. The record – an estimated 50,000 holes in one tree – probably took more than 100 years to make, according to bird expert David Sibley. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology notes that the two main threats to Acorn Woodpeckers are the loss of oak woodlands in California along with the removal of dead trees and nesting sites. Increasing
drought, fire and fierce windstorms all take their toll. The accumulated loss of dead trees means a loss of homes for many animals and no place to raise their young. And so, Acorn Woodpeckers make their homes in power poles, which look and feel much like dead trees to them, much to the chagrin of power companies. Four years ago, Southern California Edison (SCE) tagged the support pole in our yard and the colony’s home for removal. The nest hole is located about 10 feet above the guy wire (at mid staff) that supports the utility pole on the other side of the street. Aside from the nest, the pole appears solid, making it unclear why SCE would bother with the expense of replacement. My husband and I talked to many people up the levels at SCE. We wrote letters and explored options including removing the nest and reattaching it, or simply installing a new pole beside it and leaving the old pole letting us assume responsibility since it is on our property. One day in 2016, a SCE truck and workers showed up with a new pole and started digging. Alarmed, we went out to talk to them. They examined the pole – with the woodpeckers watching. They agreed that the pole was structurally sound. They left and we celebrated. We walked down to the mailbox, looked up and toasted the woodpeckers looking down on us from the entrance to their nest. Over the years, various SCE officials and contractors have noted that they have saved nests by leaving the old pole next to a new one or slicing off a section with the nesting cavity and attaching it to a new pole. But this is currently not their policy. Legally they must only leave active nests with chicks. Jesse Grantham argues that SCE’s policy of nest removal is expensive and time consuming, especially in a time of declining revenues for SCE due to Thomas Fire lawsuits and increasing use of solar panels. “Since the woodpeckers are not going to go away, unless we kill them all off, why not just remove the existing nest site and re-attach it to the new pole?” Grantham asks. He asserts cutting an 18-inch section of the pole with the cavity nest and attaching it to a new pole would be far cheaper than constantly replacing poles. “Acorn Woodpeckers hate to waste time and energy excavating nest sites. This seems like such an incredibly easy solution. It saves the pole and the woodpeckers.” Last December, a new round of SCE contractors once again tagged the pole. When we asked one if the pole really needed replacing, he sized it up, kicked it with solid work boots, offering an opinion the pole had at least another good 10 years in its functional life. He assured us that he would note in his report. But he added, “Edison won’t necessarily pay any attention to me, I am just a contractor.” Now I am as concerned as anyone about fires, but this pole was sound. It is hard to see it as a priority for removal. On Dec. 17, we wrote to six SCE staff members we had communicated with over the years asking to discuss options for saving the nesting cavity. No one from SCE responded. Christmas came and went. The woodpeckers continued about their business and we with ours. On a recent day, my husband and I returned home and were stunned to find the pole was gone, the woodpeckers missing. In its place loomed an imposing black pole wrapped in wire mesh around the bottom third – which is perplexing. I phoned and emailed SCE’s Avian Program Manager to ask, “What happened? And why has Edison never bothered to respond to us?” So far, not a peep. I wonder where our local colony of

Excavating a nesting cavity is a time and energy consuming task. When an existing nest site is removed, a human-made nesting site can substitute. Woodpeckers will take the new home, do their own remodeling and use it year after year.

woodpeckers has gone. Did they have an alternate cavity? Have they found a new place to excavate a nest? Or did the colony fracture and disperse? As I pondered the loss of the woodpeckers, I reached out to Gillian Martin, the director of the Cavity Conservation Initiative cavityconservation.com. Saving tree cavities, snags and branches is one of the best things we can do for wildlife. They need them for their homes, and she provides advice on how to do so with safety for humans in mind. “Birds face mounting challenges. The loss of one active nest matters. It represents the loss of all the future generation
that those birds might have produced if they continued,” Martin said. “This is how populations decline.” The soundtrack in our naturehood has changed. A walk to the mailbox no longer is greeted with the garrulous chatter from above. What’s left is little more than unsettling quiet, our own Silent Spring.
