Trail restoration project to link Santa Barbara and Ventura counties

Mile by mile, the trails ravaged by the Thomas Fire are being restored to improve public access to wilderness throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. This spring, a coalition of organizations dedicated to regional trails are collaborating to repair the fire-damaged and severely overgrown Murietta Trail near Ojai. The trails group, which consists of Los Padres Forest Association, The C.R.E.W., Sage Trail Alliance and the Santa Barbara County Trails Council, have joined forces to restore the Murietta Trail. The project is being launched with a grant from the Thomas Fire Trail Fund. “We’re very excited to begin work on the Murietta Trail,” said Bryan Conant of the Los Padres Forest Association. “Right now, the trail is incredibly overgrown and, in some places, impossible to follow; but once it’s restored, it will be open to all types of trail users—day hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians and also backpackers camping at Murietta Camp.” The trail begins about 12 miles northwest of Ojai, where Murietta Canyon and Matilija Canyon watersheds meet. From the trailhead, Murietta Trail meanders

Ari Songer of Los Padres Forest Association and Dave Bennett of Sage Trail Alliance begin restoration work on the Murietta Trail near Ojai. 1.67 miles southwest through the Los Padres National Forest, toward Santa Barbara County. “Restoration of this trail is a crucial first step toward reconnecting the Santa Barbara and Ventura trail systems. Upon completion, we anticipate that hikers looking for a challenge will launch from the Murietta Trail, crest the Santa Ynez Mountains, and connect to Santa Barbara County front and backcountry trails,” said Mark Wilkinson of the Santa Barbara County Trails Council. Work on Murietta Trail is kicking off now and anticipated to be complete by mid-May. Following a flagged route, trail crews will cut a rough preliminary line through the dense ground cover, remove downed trees across the trail, and restore it to U.S. Forest Service Trail Standards. “With a focus on sustainable trail construction and by joining forces we are able to improve the resilience of the Murietta Trail to erosion and help conserve the

natural ecosystems as a whole for the enjoyment of generations to come,” said Dillon Osleger of Sage Trail Alliance. “Backcountry trails are at the heart of our organization’s mission and history,” said Jennifer Berry of The C.R.E.W. “We feel incredibly fortunate that our young adult staff can take part in this valuable work—and working with power and hand tools in the field means we’re already very good at safe distancing!” To volunteer or support the project financially, visit

The facts on proposed inn parking

A recent advertisement by the Downtown Beach Neighborhood Coalition published in CVN voiced opposition to the proposed hotel project at 499 Linden Ave. While we respect their concerns, we believe anything being asserted as “factual” should indeed be accurate. The coalition’s advertisement states incorrectly that there will be “only nine public spaces” in the current parking lot after the hotel is completed. The facts are: There will be a total of 144 public parking spaces (61, not nine, in the current parking lot) representing an increase of 31 spots over the present number of spaces. Recent studies have concluded the public will not see any loss of parking with the construction of the hotel. We believe the hotel is consistent with all city policies and regulations and will: generate an estimated $500,000+ in annual income (rent and TOT) for the city; create numerous jobs for local contractors, hotel, hospitality staff and artists; and result in a marked increase in local foot traffic for downtown businesses. We have worked to ensure the size and appearance of the proposed hotel is consistent with the character of both the neighborhood and Carpinteria. This hotel will feel and look like Carp. With the continued input garnered from Carpinterians, we believe it will be a great cultural and financial addition to the city. In these times of social distancing, we recognize the challenges of communicating with our neighbors. We look forward to the time when public meetings can be held regarding the proposed hotel. If you would like to know more about the facts of the project, we welcome your inquiry at: We respect the rights of those who do not want to see the parking lot developed, but we respectfully request their comments be truthful.

Proposed rate hikes are new water woes

The Carpinteria Valley Water District once again is proposing a rate increase. This comes at a time when residential users are necessarily increasing home water consumption substantially, with families sheltering-in-place. Adding insult to injury, the district has scheduled a legally mandated public hearing on May 27, possibly at the peak of this public health crisis across our community and our state. Must our residents put in jeopardy



“If entire states are postponing or canceling important elections due to this unprecedented pandemic, is it too much to ask that our water district delay this public hearing?”

––David Rosso

their families’ personal health and safety in order to participate in this legally mandated public hearing? Don’t customers and rate payers have enough difficult challenges these days simply maintaining their day-to-day lives without having to spend time going over the complicated details of the proposed rate increase while tending to children at home, work at home, or worse, having to navigate a job outside of the house in this uncertain environment? If entire states are postponing or canceling important elections due to this unprecedented pandemic, is it too much to ask that our water district delay this public hearing? This change to the proposed meeting date needs to be seriously considered by the CVWD Board as a recognition of the circumstances we all face in these uncertain times. Making this change to recognize wider public interest and to benefit public participation will demonstrate to customers that, yes, we are all in this together, even the water district’s Board of Directors.

We’ll need a better way than lockdown

No one will argue that Covid-19 is a serious and infectious disease. However, it’s not fear of catching the virus that keeps me up at night. What does keep me up is the social devastation that is emerging from the economic disruption of our society. The decision to lockdown our country was driven by pandemic modelling. Perhaps there should be “models” created for the deaths that will result from the silent pandemic of anxiety and stress. Heavyhanded lockdowns are driving people into poverty, isolation and loneliness. The collateral damage over time is unthinkable.

Not to diminish the seriousness of the virus, but an analysis of public health testing shows a large percentage of the population hasn’t yet contracted the virus and has no immunity. For this reason, the virus will be around for some time and continue to spread, so we’ll need a better way to deal with it than shutting everything down. So, the question is, what now? Will government officials be willing to change course as new numbers and more reliable data are revealed? They are quick to defend their actions by touting the success of their lockdown policies in “flattening the curve,” however, many places that have taken a less-restrictive, more common-sense approach are doing just as well or better. Will these officials, safe in their employment, continue to move the goalposts while denying millions of Americans their basic constitutional right to work and care for their families?

Don’t kill the messenger

The biggest thing this lockdown has taught me is how important the free press is and has been. And Netflix (but that’s another story). Having to work “around” the lethal fear mongering from the top, I am ever so grateful for the free press. The morning briefings by adults and then reporting by a skeptical media, gives me hope. We must not kill the messenger. I welcome letters from the tenacious Thorns, I welcome debate, I welcome discussion—it brings out the issues, and if we talk long enough (and don’t shoot at each other) solutions can rise from the ashes. Without the free press, we would all be shaking in fear, swallowing our Clorox tablets, badmouthing the Chinese, lying bodaciously about testing and PPE, and buying guns.

But we here Carpinterians have reached out gently and quietly everywhere—the supermarkets, meal deliveries, yard signs, mask making. We are strongest, apparently, when we are down for the count! No one in their right mind wants this dilemma, and I think Americans have behaved rather admirably. I can imagine kids and demanding old people like me, banging on the not-so-metaphorical doors, wanting out. But we have done it with aplomb. I am so proud to be a Carpinterian.

Failure to comply will hurt community

I feel that as a city, Carpinteria is doing a fine job in Covid-19 mitigation. But today’s (Saturday, April 25) scene at the beach is contrary to all the hard work we have done as a community. Why shut down beach parking if you allow visitors to overrun the beach with parking in our neighborhoods? Many of these people visit from areas of exponentially higher infection exposure, and essentially erase the sacrifices our local community have made to maintain social distancing. I don’t support beach closures because as a community, we are utilizing the beach following the discretion mandated by health officials. It’s as if all the rules go out the window because tourists arrive. These visitors are not cognizant, or they are failing to comply with standard distancing protocol.

Michael Mantalos Carpinteria

Good job, America

The last several months have been very challenging for America and the world. We are in a war against an invisible, dangerous enemy—Covid-19. As we battle this virus, the united front shown by America has been amazing. Everyday Americans have followed guidelines. Newspapers and local TV stations and magazines have provided very useful information. Including the Coastal View News. The president and his taskforce have kept us updated. The governors and the president have worked together. Heroes include truckers, grocery clerks, doctors, dentists, labs, hospital workers, hospitals, pharmacies, the military, FEMA and others. Drugs have been found to help, vaccines are being tested and medical stockpiles are being filled. Once again, America has proven herself a world leader, and the American spirit is alive and well.

Sharks sighted at Santa Claus Beach

On Saturday, April 25, while afternoon beach goers were enjoying the midday sun, the U.S. Coast Guard recorded eight great white sharks swimming near the Santa Claus Beach shoreline. Local Sheriff’s deputies received several calls from beachgoers with reports of shark sightings and a deputy sergeant also saw two sharks near Santa Claus—one large and one small. While the sharks were close enough to shore to be seen by paddleboarders and surfers, no one was injured or came in direct contact with them. In recent years, juvenile white sharks have been spotted with some regularity in the spring and summer months at Santa Claus Lane. Researchers believe the increased number of shark sighting on many sandy beaches throughout Southern California correlate with re-bounding shark populations after a ban on fishing for great whites was put into effect in 1994.

CARP Growers seats new officers

At its annual meeting on April 14, CARP Growers, the local cannabis farmers group, celebrated its second birthday and seated new officers on its Board of Directors. Tristan Strauss, CEO and co-founder of Headwaters, was unanimously appointed as president for the group’s third year. Graham Farrar shifted from the president’s seat to VP/ secretary of the board and commemorated the year of hard work he presided over. Among other efforts, CARP Growers contributed over $100,000 to community causes during its second year, a majority of which went to youth programs at Girls Inc., Carpinteria Unified School District and Carpinteria Children’s Project. Hans Brand, CEO of Autumn Brands, became board treasurer. CARP Growers was established in the spring of 2018 in order to foster a positive relationship between cannabis farmers and the community of Carpinteria. In addition to its community giving programs, member farms collaborate on setting best farming practices in the areas of environmental protections and odor control. Strauss said, “In addition to running our own separate farms, having this association allows us to look at the bigger picture together and to act together as a community within a community. We hold our membership to high standards and will continue to do so.” Learn more at

Benefits available for the self-employed

On Tuesday, April 28, The California Employment Development Department (EDD) launched the new federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program to provide financial support to Californians who are out of business or whose ability to provide services has been significantly reduced as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The PUA program applies to business owners, self-employed and independent contractors, along with those who have limited work history and others not usually eligible for regular state Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. However, the Los Angeles Times reported incidents of the EDD website freezing and independent workers still having trouble filing claims. Initial payments of $167 per week, retroactive to February, will be made, and the weekly amount may be increased as soon as further programming is completed and depending on workers’ prior earnings. The EDD will review earnings information submitted in the application to determine the full payment amount. Additionally, an extra $600 in federal stimulus funds will be added to approved claims for payments between March 29 and the end of July.

The stay-at-home order did not keep people from Carpinteria’s beaches during last week’s heat wave and the weekend’s warm weather.


City addresses open beaches during the pandemic By DeBra Herrick

The aptly named “hot topics” section of Monday’s Carpinteria City Council meeting focused on managing social distancing at the beach on these hot beach-worthy days during the pandemic. as temperatures soared into the 90s last week, beaches saw a surge in visitors, but City Manager David Durflinger assured the council that “overall, folks did well” in adhering to social distancing requirements. Unlike Ventura County which has restricted beach use to physical activity (walking, biking, surfing, etc.) or Los Angeles County which has closed beaches altogether, santa Barbara County beaches remain open for all kinds of day use. The city of Carpinteria has restricted beach parking and has deployed law enforcement to beaches to enforce social distancing, along with “a lot of messaging” and signposts alerting beachgoers of social distancing requirements. open beaches are important for the mental and physical health of residents, asserted Durflinger, but keeping them open is not without challenges. “We have challenges from not just locals but also travelers from other areas,” he said. “It requires a lot of staffing, and ramping up enforcement on busy days.” on saturday, law enforcement made 25 contacts on Carpinteria’s beaches for noncompliance with social distancing, “but it wasn’t impossible to maintain social distancing,” said Durflinger. “It’s not a time for gathering, but we want to try and keep beaches open because they’re so important to health.” The challenges extend from the beach to nearby businesses, that also saw an up-

tick over the weekend. The city contacted these locales as well and worked with them on how to ensure social distancing while still providing services, according to the city manager. The penalty for violating the stayat-home order is a $1,000 fine, though no fines have been issued to date in santa Barbara County. If beaches are overcrowded, they will be closed, the county has asserted. “It’s good weather and we hope to continue with the status quo and fine tune,” said Durflinger. restricting beach parking pushed more parking congestion into the Beach neighborhood’s residential streets, causing some residents to call for time limits on street parking. However, while 1-hour parking might discourage some beach users from leaving their vehicles all day, others will willingly accept the parking ticket as “the cost of going to the beach,” noted city staff. additionally, residents would also be impacted. Two letters from the public concerning the beaches were read to the council. Gail Marshall wrote that “social distancing is our best way forward” and that “it isn’t fun and there are no shortcuts.” Marshall requested that there be a presence on our local beaches of law enforcement reminding visitors to keep the six-foot distance and issuing tickets to those who are noncompliant. Pam Werner stated that “many Carpinterians are concerned about the influx of out-of-town visitors during the pandemic who are coming and using our beaches.” Werner urged the city to “close our beaches to the residents only” or adopt a “keep it moving” policy, like Ventura County has. “I walk the beach daily for physical and mental

health and it is out of control and the majority are not locals. state beach patrol and lifeguards on duty, that puts someone at all the entrances except Jelly Bowl, and most people from out of town don’t know that beach.” Durflinger noted that aside from the difficulty in enforcing resident-only beaches, it is also potentially illegal, and no city in Coastal California has implemented such an ordinance.

Face coverings

another “hot topic” for the council was whether face coverings should be required for retail and public spaces. “The biggest complaint I get walking everyday through town is that people are going into markets without wearing masks,” said Councilman Fred shaw. “People get very frustrated. albertsons, smart & Final, CVs, just to name a few—people are going in there without wearing masks.” Currently, the city of Carpinteria is following orders from the state and county public health departments. Face coverings have been advised, but not ordered. Carpinteria’s legal counsel noted that the city can adopt its own policy requiring face masks for shopping or going into essential businesses. several cities have already done so including ojai, Chula Vista and Fremont in the Bay area. some supermarkets have implemented store policies to require masks. at this time, the city plans to continue to follow public health guidelines to recommend face coverings but not require them, though the option of mandating face masks will continue to be discussed and considered.

Canalino principal updates families on remote instruction

on Monday, april 27, Canalino Elementary school Principal Jamie Persoon updated families via email on the school’s plans for remote learning in the weeks ahead. noting that she missed “the sound and sight of your children here on campus,” the principal added, “It’s unnervingly quiet in the office each weekday!” Teachers are continuing to learn and master online programs, like JamBoard and FlipGrid, as well as other educational applications available in the district’s Google suite. referring to the current situation as a “grand experiment called remote learning,” Persoon wrote that the district’s tech leader aaron la Plante is supporting teachers as they improve online instruction. Construction crews are scheduled to complete Wing one projects on campus in June as part of continuing Measure U work to upgrade facilities districtwide.

a special education center is being built in the quad with interior restrooms and adaptive furniture. When on-campus instruction resumes (no word yet as to when that will be) three first-grade classrooms will be housed in rooms two, three and four, and the two DlI thirdgrade classes will be in wing four. The portable classrooms are scheduled to be removed from the blacktop at the beginning of august. Fourth-grade parents will be receiving messages from the principal in the next few weeks about the Catalina Island Marine Institute field trip scheduled in september. Plans are under way for a fifth-grade virtual promotion, awards and a slide show. Kindergarten registration numbers are being solidified so the school can be appropriately staffed for the coming school year. Persoon thanked the 93013 Fund, Girls Inc. and superintendent Diana rigby for

the school supplies bags that went out to students in need. lunches are being served with a dry breakfast included from 12 to 1 p.m. at Canalino, aliso and Monte Vista Park each weekday. Canalino has distributed 330 Chromebooks and about 30 hot spots as of april 27. “our counseling team is working hard to connect with each kid and every family,” Persoon wrote. “Teachers report ‘attendance’ each week to me, and I connect with the counseling team and teachers to ‘find’ students we haven’t heard from or who are not completing much work.” a library book box has been left outside the front office for students to return library books. “Mrs. soto is working in the Canalino library when she is not at aliso,” Persoon advised, “and will check in and re-shelve books so our library is ready and stocked when students can return.”

In other city news… Covid-19 economic impact report

City Council received a report on the anticipated financial impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the current and coming years. sales tax and hotel bed tax revenues are expected to be down substantially while the third major city revenue source, property taxes, are not expected to be affected this year or next. a worst-case scenario for the current year’s budget is a loss of $1.3 million in city revenues. There will be impacts in the next fiscal year, which starts July 1, but it is too early to predict the severity of those impacts. To save on expenses, the city has implemented a hiring freeze.

Pandemic Communications Committee

at the request of Mayor Wade nomura, City Council elected to form an ad hoc committee focused on community-wide communications during the pandemic. nomura and Vice-Mayor al Clark will serve on the committee. Councilmembers requested that at the next meeting, a second ad hoc committee be formed to prepare for the city’s economic recovery from the pandemic.

Pavement Rehab

The council awarded a construction contract for the 2020 Pavement rehabilitation Project and Parking lot no. 2 and Cactus lane Improvements Project for a total budget of $2 million.

Sea level rise adaptation contract

The council approved an agreement with Moffatt & nichol to provide consulting coastal engineering services for the Dune and shoreline Management Plan for up to $120,000. as an adaptation strategy for sea level rise, the Dune and shoreline Management Plan will establish a living shoreline/dune complex system that is supplemented by a sediment and cobble nourishment program.

ARB to consider Island Center plans

Carpinteria’s architectural review Board will meet on Thursday, april 30 at 5:30 p.m. to review several projects throughout the city, including a conceptual review for the santa Cruz Island Foundation’s Chrisman California Island Center at the old Bank of america, 4994 Carpinteria ave. The applicants propose a change of use and remodel/renovation. The project entails an interior and exterior remodel of the existing building, and reconfiguration of landscaping and parking areas.

County reports seven deaths from Covid-19, 477 cases

As of April 29, Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (PHD) reports 477 cases of Covid-19, of which 326 are fully recovered patients. Of the 151 active cases, 99 people are recovering at home, 39 are recovering in a hospital (12 of whom are in an Intensive Care Unit) and six are pending an update. Seven deaths have been reported. In the South County communities of Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria, there are 21 confirmed cases and no deaths. Over the past two weeks, case counts have climbed in a Lompoc federal prison, now totaling 104, including one death. Other cities showing steady rises include Santa Maria with 128 cases, including one death; city of Lompoc with 79, including one death; and Santa Barbara with 56 cases. Goleta has only seven confirmed cases, but two deaths. The county has now given 4,098 tests for Covid-19. Three were inconclusive and 3,618 were negative. While most cases of Covid-19 exhibit mild or moderate symptoms, the county’s growing case numbers and first deaths from Covid-19 underscore the urgent need for all residents to take extra steps to protect those who are particularly vulnerable to developing more serious illness, including elderly persons and those with underlying health conditions, such as, diabetes, cancer, immunodeficiency and asthma. For general questions about Covid-19 and precautions currently recommended by Santa Barbara County Public Health, residents may call the county’s call center at (833) 688-5551.

Natural History Notes

Great White shark sightings on the California Coast, including Carpinteria, are more common in recent years. According to shark experts, this is primarily the result of the ban on near shore gill net fishing in 1995, which previously killed large numbers of juvenile sharks. Great Whites grow slowly, and many years pass before adults transition from fish to marine mammal prey, which is why it is only in the past few years that more large adults are seen. In the Santa Barbara Channel, prey includes the tens of thousands of local sea lions and elephant seals, as well as the smaller and much less numerous harbor seals. Carpinteria’s harbor seal population represents perhaps 1 percent or less of the pinnipeds within about 50 miles. Since Great Whites cruise hundreds to thousands of miles, the likelihood one will be encountered at any given spot is not high, although higher numbers of sharks are observed near the sea lion and elephant seal rookeries on the Channel Islands where thousands of seals haul out.

When schools closed, Angie Torres Miller started the Facebook group “Learn, Play and Grow” to help parents find enrichment activities for their school-aged children. Pictured, Torres Miller prepares to give a speech at a fundraiser for the Howard School, where she teaches first grade.

Howard School teacher offers online education activities

With three daughters—Olivia, 15, Emma, 14, and Ava, 10—and a career in elementary-level education, Howard School first-grade teacher Angie Torres Miller is well positioned to offer tips for home schooling to house-bound families. Recognizing that parenting is one thing and teaching another (not to mention the near-impossible task of simultaneously working), Torres Miller said “I started worrying that parents wouldn’t be able to keep their kids busy.” So, she started the Facebook page, “Learn, Play and Grow,” a space for sharing posts and videos that parents can use to help keep their kids occupied with meaningful activities. Focusing on easy-to-make projects like using a toy dinosaur to project a large shadow that children can then outline on a big sheet of paper, or Jell-O trays with items embedded that toddlers can dig-out, Torres Miller hopes the activities can buy harried parents a short respite, “Something for kids to do even for 15 minutes.” “I don’t want kids to take the brunt of the stress parents are feeling,” she said. Thus far, 1,035 people have joined her

Facebook page and Torres Miller’s enthusiasm is palpable when she says, “It feels so good! Every day I post five activities.” Serving a wide range of kids of different ages and different needs, Torres Miller has also been providing activities for students on the autism spectrum, trying, she says, “to pull-in as much as I can.” All this, while continuing to teach her first-grade class at Howard School for two-hours each morning via Zoom, then taking over story time afterwards, as staff share the load of teaching specialized subjects. “I hear friends of mine say, ‘I’m ready for the kids to go back to school,’” Torres Miller related. She sounds an empathetic note when she adds, “I feel so bad, (a lot of parents) don’t know where to start.” She hopes her Facebook activities provide some support for her growing online community: “I’m trying to help—they seem so stuck.” To see Torres Miller’s Facebook educational posts, search for the group “Learn, Play and Grow” on Facebook. —Christian Beamish

Auction raises money for local businesses

Annette Fisher rallied her Carpinteriaarea connections to provide affordable auction items to raise money for local businesses affected by the Covid-19 emergency. Having already donated proceeds of more than $400 to Seastrand and Carpinteria Nail Salon, Fisher is now looking to raise more than $600 for the Alcazar Theatre before the current auction ends on April 30. “For me, it’s a drop in the bucket,” Fisher said, “but maybe it helps pay an electricity bill or something.” Gift certificates to area restaurants, Island Packers passes, bottles of wine, paintings and rock paintings, are among the items on auction.

At the Carpinteria Children’s Project, David Hernandez gets ready to unload 45 cases of Casa Hernandez Salsa for families in need.

Nonprofits collaborate to meet seniors’ needs

Many of Carpinteria’s older community members, particularly those living alone, are not receiving the support they need during the coronavirus pandemic. To address this gap, Carpinteria Children’s Project (CCP) has joined several nonprofits in Santa Barbara County to identify isolated seniors and connect them to essential services or critical needs, such as food and medical supplies. The consortium, led by Family Service Agency (FSA) of Santa Barbara County, also includes Central Coast Commission for Senior Citizens, Center for Successful Aging, Community Action Commission, Community Partners in Caring, Cuyama Valley Family Resource Center, Little House by the Park, Lompoc Valley Medical Center, Lompoc Valley Community Healthcare Organization and Santa Ynez Valley People Helping People. “The Carpinteria Children’s Project nurtures a strong community and healthy families. During the Covid-19

emergency, we are here to support older adults and those with underlying conditions who are isolating at home with basic necessities like groceries and prescriptions and someone to talk to,” said CCP’s executive director, Maria Chesley. “We are here to help any Carpinterian connect to food, financial resources and safe online activities.” The grassroots, senior-focused program was started with an initial funding consortium of the James S. Bower Foundation, Wood-Claeyssens Foundation and an anonymous donor, and has received additional funding from the Zegar Family Foundation.

Carpinteria breweries chug along

Call to action: buy beer direct from local breweries By Andres nuño A little over a month ago, Carpinteria’s breweries were heading into their busiest season, anticipating tourists and locals flocking-in, buzzing with excitement for the longer and warmer days. Everything changed on March 19 when California implemented its Covid-19 stay-at-home order, closing all bars, including craft breweries. Forty-six days later, Island Brewing Company, brewLAB and Rincon Brewery are all reeling with losses. “We were on a pretty big high that week (before the order was issued) heading into Lorbo Fest,” said Steve Jarmie, brewer and co-owner of brewLAB. Lorbo Fest, a beer and music festival in celebration of the late Carpinteria-local, Lauren Campbell, was expected to be a great sales weekend. Instead, it was canceled. On the other end of Carpinteria Avenue, Rincon Brewery is down 70 percent in overall sales, according to Mark Hyatt, the brewhouse’s CEO. And down by the train tracks, Island Brewing Company has been “greatly” impacted, said owner Paul Wright. Carpinteria’s breweries rely on their on-premise sales. Upwards of 98 percent of brewLAB’s revenue is from on-premise


Spring was anticipated to be a busy season for Carpinteria’s craft breweries like brewLAB; instead, breweries are barely staying afloat. One way to help, buy beer directly from the brewery. sales. Island Brewing and Rincon have also seen steep drop-offs in regular orders from bars and restaurants. To offset losses, breweries have turned to to-go orders, home delivery services and shipping beer throughout California. Support has also come from locals.

“(We want) to thank the community for the support that they have shown,” said Jarmie. Wright noted that “the regulars are stopping by” Island Brewing, though he’d like to see more volume in to-go orders. Wright has added a free Carpinteria and Summerland delivery service:






12 - 2:30 P.M. • LIMITED TICKETS


orders over $30 placed before 2 p.m, will be delivered to your doorstep by 7 p.m. that day. brewLAB is considering adding this service soon as well. Rincon Brewery, also a dine-in restaurant, has had to overcome different challenges at their two taprooms in Carpinteria and Ventura—as well as at their new Santa Barbara location that was set to open on April 1 in the Funk Zone. Offering food has allowed Rincon to work with non-profit groups World Central Kitchen, Kids and Families Together and CARPGrowers. Their Ventura location has turned into a drive through six days a week, and they are making 300 meals a day for local families in need. In Carpinteria, they’re making lunches for CARP Growers cannabis workers twice weekly. While you still can buy beers at Albertsons or local liquor stores, purchasing directly from the breweries is the best way to help them. “Anytime you are thirsty for beer or hungry, instead of going to the supermarket, go to the local establishment where they make the beer,” said Central Coast Brewers Guild President Tony Grimes. “(Those sales) directly impact that brewery to survive and creates revenue that they can use right away.” That sentiment was echoed by all three breweries, who have had to lay off employees while they wait to hear back from the Payroll Protection Program. “Many California breweries are small businesses focused on their community and selling beer directly to their visitors through the brewery tasting room,” said Leia Baily of California Craft Brewers Association. “The statewide stay-at-home order has dramatically impacted all revenue streams for these craft breweries. The best way to ensure they remain in business post-Covid-19 is to buy directly from their business either via take-out, delivery or mail order.” One of the smallest nano breweries in the state, brewLAB was able to cut back on hours and retain their small staff. brewLAB got a little help from a friend, Rincon Brewery, who stepped in with the needed machinery so they could shift to to-go beer sales “We are all in this together,” said Rincon’s Hyatt. “They are great people and a part of this community.” This act of kindness allowed brewLAB to start rolling out crowlers (32 oz. beers), and they have since added 16 oz. four-packs to their to-go menu. “As bad as its been for businesses, it’s been great to see the community caring about us, and a lot of other businesses in town,” said brewLAB’s Jarmie. “If you can’t get beer to go or are financially hurting, write a positive post on Yelp, Google or social media.

Warriors in the house

PHotoS by RobIn KARlSSon The Carpinteria High School Class of 2020 has the distinction of not only facing one of the largest wildfires in California history back in 2017-18, but now a global pandemic that has taken a poleaxe to the back half of senior year—just when the celebrations for all they have achieved were getting closer. In a gesture to acknowledge their students’ hard work in sports and academics, CHS parents have purchased signs from Rockwell Printers and placed them in their yards so the whole town knows there’s a Warrior in the house. CVN photographer Robin Karlsson has been capturing the seniors at home for the past couple of weeks.

A track team member/Eagle Scout and officer in FFA respectively, twins Kameron and Karina Dayka have made the most of their Carpinteria High School experience.

Alitza Gonzalez participated in the Girls Inc. Eureka! program and looks forward to continued studies moving forward.

Evan George was an integral member of the Warriors track program and will continue running as a freshman at Westmont College.

Kylee Martinez is set to go to Westmont College in the fall where she will major in psychology and minor in religious studies. A member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Martinez also participated in Muses, and at 16-years-old, she will be the youngest member of her class to graduate.

Local music teacher wins Santa Barbara Bowl award






Liz Caruso lives in Carpinteria and has been teaching music for 13 years, the last nine of which have been at Monroe Elementary School in Santa Barbara. Nominated by her colleagues and school administrators, Caruso was recently named the 2021 Santa Barbara Bowl Performing Arts Teacher of the Year—the most prestigious award given to music teachers in Santa Barbara County. “This is a fantastic award for a fantastic teacher. We are very proud and happy for Ms. Caruso!” wrote Monroe Elementary School Principal Brian Naughton in a letter to parents. In addition to earning her credential as a music teacher as part of her undergraduate degree at Long Island University in New York, Caruso is certified in the Orff-Schulwerk method that teaches CELEBRATING 50 YEARS young children about music using their mind and OF CARPINTERIA & body through a mixture of singing, dancing, acting and the use of THE AVOFEST, percussion instruments.

all the instruments. School closures due to Covid-19 have significantly impacted music instruction, and Caruso says she is “trying to focus on the bright side—focusing on things I can’t usually get to in class.” She went on to say that she is taking the opportunity to speak with her students online about listening to music like musicians do— mapping sequences, noting the changes in mood of certain pieces and listening for expression. It’s not easy, Caruso admits: “Try teaching music over the computer,” she said jokingly. Until the pandemic skewered the school year, Caruso’s sixth grade students were enjoying great success as the only elementary-aged band to ever be asked to perform at the KTYD annual education benefit. Another unfortunate consequence of Covid-19 is that Caruso r p i nher t e rschool i a, c a l i f o r cannot enjoy her awardc awith community of staff, parents and students.

santa Barbara Golf course, home of the chs boys and girls golf teams recently re-opened after being closed for five weeks.

Golf is back, Tee Time reopens story and photos By alonzo orozco

Golf, a sport that often pits one against nature’s elements of wind, sand and water, is also generally a sport that easily adheres to the practice of social distancing. “We had all the postings inside the door to follow social distancing, golfers pretty much follow the rules,” said Carpinteria Tee Time owner Blake Johnson who initiated the order around the middle of March. But, by the end of March, the city of Carpinteria closed down the driving range. Tee Time’s range is one of an array of golf venues located up and down the coast that First Tee Central Coast (FTTC), an international organization dedicated to introducing the sport to young people, regularly sends instructors. FTTC has a particularly strong tie to Carpinteria High School, as current executive director Butch Breeden started the Warriors’ boys and girls golf programs. Steve Benzin who is a former Tee Time instructor, also coached the boys and girls teams at CHS during the past decade. Benzin was often scene at the range until about a year ago when he moved to Oregon. Meanwhile, Johnson did what he could to keep the facility open while following safety measures set up as a result of the pandemic. “We only allowed one person in the pro shop at a time, and we modified that at the end, when we didn’t let anybody in, and put the credit card machine on the outside, taking credit cards only,” said Johnson. He also set up wider than normal tee boxes, consisting of 13 slots that were arranged 20 feet apart to more than adhere to social distancing standards. “It’s easy to keep six feet apart if you’re practicing, golfers kind of want to be in their own little world when they’re practicing,” explained Johnson. There are no golf courses in the city

of Carpinteria, so, in recent years, the Warrior golf teams have adopted the Santa Barbara Golf Club as their home course, a venue that’s been around since 1958 off Highway 101 and Las Positas, a little more than 15 minutes north. “We’ve been the home golf course for both the (CHS) girls and boys home teams since I’ve been here,” said the club’s PGA general manager Randy Shannon who took over the post in July of 2016. Both squads had often played at the Montecito Country Club until it was remodeled in 2015. Shannon closed his course on March 20, the morning after Governor Newsom’s stay-at-home order. The general manager ended up cutting his staff from 12 to three employees and answered all phone calls from his office. “For the most part, we have fencing all the way around the property, not that some haven’t chosen to jump that fence, it’s been very cooperative by most,” said Shannon who resides in Carpinteria. While, most of the golf courses and driving ranges were closed in Santa Barbara County, private venues remained open, as did public facilities in San Luis Obispo. According to Johnson, who played a round at Cypress Ridge in Arroyo Grande last week, the golfers were each required to take separate carts on the course. Last weekend, the county gave permission for all public and private courses to open.

An unknown driver and vehicle exited Southbound Hwy 101 at Carpinteria Avenue due to the freeway being closed for construction.

9:11 a.m. / Stolen Property / 4100 block Via Real

Deputies responded to a motel on a report of a stolen bike with a suspect on scene. Upon arrival, a male fled the area but was contacted in front of another nearby motel.

Breaking ground: starting a vegetable garden from scratch CVN

provide bountiful harvests within two short months. As a general rule of thumb, seeds should be planted as deep as they are large. Once covered, tamp seed firmly with your hand and keep the soil surface evenly moist until germination. Alena Steen is Coordinator of the Carpinteria Garden Park, an organic community garden located at 4855 Fifth St., developed by the City’s Parks and Recreation Department. Community members rent a plot to grow their own fresh produce. For more information, visit



ALENA STEEN What a meaningful time to build a garden and plant seeds. People around the country are finding the time and purpose to grow food, as our social world and time commitments diminish and selfreliance increases. Growing some of your household’s fresh fruits and vegetables is a powerful investment in your mental, emotional, and physical health. Working with plants, connecting to the other-thanhuman world, and eating fresh, organic food will make you happier and healthier. We are fortunate to live in an ideal growing climate, where even the smallest space (one raised bed, pots on a sunny patio or stoop, or a tiny lawn) can grow an abundance of fresh food. Now is the perfect time to begin. The late rains have left soil workable, while lengthening days and warmer temperatures ensure seeds will germinate within a few days for instant gratification. I’ve written several basic garden howtos in this column over the last two years. However, I will go into greater detail over the coming months, since public education at the Carpinteria Garden Park is currently suspended while folks are more eager than ever to begin digging in the ground. This month’s column will highlight how to transform bare or grassy ground into healthy garden soil. Next month, I will discuss summer veggies and cyclical regimens of plant care and pest management that will make your organic garden more successful. Even the most threateningly barren soil can grow bountiful food, as long as you fold in lots of compost. Vegetables need more nutrition than the average suburban landscape, so it’s important to give plants their best shot at a healthy and productive life by taking the time to build soil. Soil is alive—one teaspoon of healthy garden soil contains more microorganisms than there are humans on earth. These microorganisms’ cycles of life and death create rich soil—their digestion and eventual death creates organic matter, and their movements through layers of soil bring oxygen underground to plant roots. Good garden soil full of organic matter and oxygen can capture much more water than barren, unimproved soil. Thus, building healthy soil and growing food is also a practice in capturing and conserving water to replenish groundwater levels. To add compost, first you need to open the earth’s crust. Use a shovel or pickax to dig at least one foot down, turning soil over with the shovel and using the back of the shovel to whack big clumps of earth into loose dirt. Once you have exposed topsoil with minimal large chunks, cover the bare soil with three to four inches of high-quality compost. Homemade compost is best, since you can be sure of its quality and origins. Many bagged composts available at garden stores are not alive, since heat treatments have sterilized soil-building microorganisms. If you don’t have homemade compost, your best bets are bags

Growing lettuce from seed is easy, as long as you take the time to build healthy garden soil. of worm compost or very aged (at least several months) horse manure. Next, mix topsoil and compost together, continuing to break large chunks by hand or with a tool. The same tactic holds true for a raised garden bed, which can be partially filled with topsoil and then finished and mixed with compost. If you grow in pots, increase the amount of compost. Your finished garden bed will have loose, crumbly soil with organic matter thoroughly mixed. The next step is to design irrigation. In a small space, simply

hand water with a hose. On a larger scale, consider a drip irrigation system which releases a slow drip of water directly onto soil at the base of a plant. Soaker hoses, poly tubing, or a headline with drip emitters are your best bets. The folks at All Around Landscape Supply on Carpinteria Ave. can help design the system that best fits your space and requirements. Now you are ready to plant seeds! Start with radishes, turnips, lettuce, spinach, kale, Swiss chard or cilantro. These veggies germinate readily, enjoy the fluctuations of our coastal spring, and will

Shopping local in times of distance Virtual, pre-made and ready for pickup

By DeBra Herrick We are now in month two of California Governor Gavin Newsom’s statewide stay-at-home order, redefining—albeit temporarily—Carpinteria’s small business community. At CVN, we remain committed to supporting Carpinteria’s small-town beach character—its eclectic mix of mom and pop shops and family-owned eateries, breweries and services. This week, we continue our series promoting local business purveyors, providing the community with the information they need to support their neighbors and to keep Carpinteria’s business community strong.

Santa Barbara Soups

SPark45 owner and physical therapist Danielle Bordenave offers a range of virtual workouts on a sliding scale.


Owner of SPARK45 Fitness and Physical Therapy, Danielle Bordenave, is offering virtual fitness classes at all levels. “We have a virtual walking workout, general fitness, silver fitness, and Lagree (off the Megaformer) class,” said Bordenave who has implemented a sliding scale on cost, from $5 to $20 per class. For physical therapy, SPARK45 is seeing critical clients (post-op, new injuries) and starting next week, based on Medicare CMS guidelines, will be able to start seeing more clients. In addition, the studio is doing tele-physical therapy through Zoom. Clients can pay for sessions using Blue Shield, Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna or United Health Care insurance and it is covered just like office visits. “We have always and continue to practice excellent cleaning and hygiene to keep everyone safe in the office and studio,” said Bordenave. “We continue to only see clients one-on-one, and we have spaced clients out to avoid any overlap in scheduling.” Sound like what you need to stay healthy from home? Head to to see class schedule, and for physical therapy, contact Danielle Bordenave at danielle@ or (805) 275-3000.
