Vehicle rolls over the side at Bates Road and Highway 101

On March 16, at 4:20 a.m., three Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Units responded with CHP and AMR to a reported vehicle over the side near Bates Road and Highway 101. The vehicle, traveling southbound on Highway 101, left the highway and rolled down the embankment, where it came to rest on the far side of the railroad tracks. Air bags were deployed, and the sole occupant, a male in his 20s, was able to self-extricate and walk back up to the highway. The driver was treated by department paramedics and transported to Cottage Hospital with minor injuries. The cause of the accident is unknown at this time, and CHP is conducting an investigation. Train traffic was paused as the extent of damage to the tracks was assessed.

Grassroots initiative launches $18 million fundraising campaign to purchase and preserve San Marcos Foothills

A group of concerned citizens have launched an aggressive fundraising campaign to raise $18 million to complete the acquisition of a property on the San Marcos Foothills to preserve the 101-acre parcel in perpetuity. The owners of the San Marcos Foothills property, the Chadmar Group, agreed to grant the community grassroots organization Save San Marcos Foothills (SSMF) a 90-day option to purchase the land representing the West Mesa of the San Marcos Foothills, where eight homes have been approved for 15 years and now are close to final approval for construction. If the grassroots organizers are unable to raise the funds, SSMF and community allies have said that they will not oppose any final permits, approvals or the construction. “SSMF appreciates the landowner’s history of land dedication, including the 200 acres for the San Marcos Foothill Nature Preserve, the 16 acres of county park, and the 23 acres of private open space at the Meadow homes,” stated organizers in social media posts. “Chadmar supports the SSMF team’s goal of land preservation. While Chadmar is prepared to complete the final eight homes and believes it would realize more net profits from development as opposed to sale, Chadmar makes this offer to sell in the spirit of community and wishes SSMF and the community success in raising the funds needed to consummate the preservation of the property.” To learn more and to donate, visit savesanmarcosfoothills.org.

430 residents of Santa Barbara County have died from Covid-19

On March 16, the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department reported 32,669 confirmed cases, including 1,376 health care workers and 430 deaths. In the South County communities of Carpinteria, Montecito and Summerland there have been 1,316 confirmed cases and 20 deaths. In the city of Santa Barbara, there have been 6,129 cases and 94 deaths.

Santa Barbara County enters Red Tier

As of 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 17, Santa Barbara County moved into the Red Tier of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Most notably, the new designation allows for additional businesses to operate indoors or expand their indoor capacity. Though the county remains above the adjusted case rate threshold of seven per 100,000, the state has restructured its metrics after surpassing two million vaccinations. The expanded color-coded tiers allow for Santa Barbara to enter the Red Tier with an adjusted case rate of 7.7 per 100,000 population, a 3.3% testing positivity rate and a 5.1 health equity rating. When the county releases a new Health Officer Order, it may include more restrictive guidelines than those outlined in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, which can be found at covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy.

Obituary

CVN

Evelyne and Larry lovingly raised three daughters, Laurie (Thomas) Hill, Linda Whiston, and Marcia (Richard) Jimenez. They raised their family in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, enjoying an active life. In 1968, she and Larry moved to Italy for Larry’s work, and later to Belgium where they enjoyed the opportunity to travel all over the world before returning to the U.S. They retired in 1982. In seeking a warm respite from cold Minnesota winters in their golden years, they moved to The Meadow in Carpinteria, California. They became members of Birnam Wood Golf Club where they enjoyed many years of sunshine, golf and lasting friendships. Evelyne considered herself fortunate to have been a stay-at-home mom; and relished in her ability to give care and love to everyone in her life. She was a gifted listener and was always eager to offer a meal, a hug or gentle advice. Her wisdom was admired by all of her family. At her 99th birthday celebration, her advice for a long and prosperous life was, “Love yourself. Do the best you can. Then maybe someday you can blow out a candle too!” Interested in genealogy, Ev was able to find her extended families in both Denmark and Norway, which led to her involvement with the Santa Barbara American Scandinavian Foundation. She was honored in 2021 for over 30 years of leadership in ASFSB. The Houdeks were also members of Carpinteria Community Church where Ev sang in the choir for over 30 years. Because of these involvements, Evelyne asked that memorials be directed to these two entities: Carpinteria Community Church, 1111 Vallecito Rd. Carpinteria, CA 93013; and American Scandinavian Foundation Scholarship Fund, PO Box 41502, Santa Barbara, CA 93140-1502.

Evelyne Marie (Bastlin) Houdek 1/9/1921 – 2/9/2021

On Feb. 9, 2021 at age 100, Evelyne Marie Houdek passed away peacefully with dignity and grace at Serenity House surrounded by family. She was a true matriarch of her large and loving family. Evelyne was a proud mother of three daughters, six grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, all of whom she had a close relationship with. She remembered every birthday, celebrated every homerun and acknowledged every achievement with a handwritten note, text or even an Instagram shout out. Evelyne was born in Chicago, Illinois to Leo and Jessie (Thorenfelth) Bastlin, the second of six children. She walked 2½ miles to Morton High School in Cicero, Illinois, then graduated from the attached two-year community college in 1941. At a community center dance, she met University of Illinois student Lawrence C. Houdek. The two fell in love and married two weeks before Pearl Harbor. They moved to Minnesota, where Larry began his career with 3M with a degree in engineering. Later, Larry was drafted into the Navy and, after serving in World War II on an oil tanker, he returned to 3M.

Safer at home? The dangers of secondhand smoke

During the pandemic, officials have encouraged families to stay at home because that’s where they are safer. However, during my time indoors, I have noticed another danger just next door: smoking. Although families might not smoke themselves, that doesn’t mean they have a choice in what they inhale. Our neighbors smoke, and because apartments are extremely close, our health suffers the consequences. I am writing this piece to express my concern about second and third-hand smoke in our city, especially in multi-unit housing. The CDC previously reported that secondhand smoke kills 41,000 non-smokers a year. This disproportionately impacts the local Latinx community, given that 41.9% of California’s multi-unit housing residents are Latinx. Carpinteria has taken some measures to protect its residents by implementing smoke-free regulations in public spaces and around the city. Unfortunately, where the city is lacking is where it’s needed the most – our homes, including apartments and condos. Many of our families and community members reside in these multi-unit complexes. I personally know family members that lived in multi-unit housing where they were constantly exposed to smoke coming from the vents that were connected to their neighbors’ apartment. Fortunately, they were able to move to a permanent home, but during the four years that they lived there the entire family was exposed to this smoke. What about the other families who aren’t as fortunate as them to be able to move out? According to the American Lung Association, Carpinteria has a mediocre overall tobacco control grade when it comes to smoke-free housing. We encourage the Carpinteria City Council to protect our families in multi-unit housing by enacting a universal smoke-free ordinance. There’s no reason why a family should be safer at a restaurant than in the comfort of their own home.

Building on public land is primary issue

At the Feb. 22 City Council meeting, an agenda item for the council was to discuss an advisory vote on the Surfliner Inn development on Parking Lot #3. A citywide vote would be additional input into the Council’s deliberations on the merits of using limited public land for a private commercial venture. The public comments, limited to three minutes each, were overwhelmingly in favor of an advisory vote (50+ comments representing 90 residents) with four comments against the vote. After public comments, the mayor allowed two principles of the developers to speak for over 10 minutes. It is understandable that developers were upset with the discussion since the negotiations have been going on for several years. Then, the council got back to deliberating an advisory vote. After councilmember Clark made a motion for an advisory vote, it became clear that three of the five members do not see an issue in building a commercial venture on public land. Building on public land is the primary issue for the opposition. The issue is not a Downtown T inn. Continuing to proceed with lease negotiations and the planning process means that a majority of the council sees this as another development proposal and not a city resident concern in using public land for private development. Yes, other localities in the county have done that on a public beach and piers, but not adjacent to residential areas, and not on public land that was developed as a viable multiuse parking lot for Downtown T businesses, Amtrak and beach/event parking.

Local lawmakers discuss relief, reopening and reform at first Legislative Update

BY ODESSA STORK

Covid-19 relief, vaccine distribution, overall economic outlook and the environment all took center stage at the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce’s first Legislative Update meeting on Friday, March 12. The virtual event, which sought to bring together local legislators and the South Coast’s business community, featured speakers Congressman Salud Carbajal, Senator Monique Limón, Assemblymember Steve Bennett and First District County Supervisor Das Williams.

Vaccine rollout and testing

Williams opened his remarks by acknowledging the toll that the past several years have taken on the South Coast’s communities, even before the pandemic began. “We’ve essentially been dealing with disasters and their aftermath for three years – not one year, but three years,” Williams said, alluding to the continued threat of wildfire, including the Thomas Fire and the deadly mudslides of 2018. “And that has posed challenges to the business community and to government,” he said. But no challenge has been greater, Williams noted, than the fight against Covid-19. “In the last couple of weeks, our number of active cases has decreased by roughly 40%, and with a little bit of luck and a lot of people still getting tested, we should be able to enter the red tier by the beginning of next month,” Williams said. However, despite recent victories including a dip in active cases and improved vaccine rollout, challenges still lie ahead. Vaccine distribution is beginning to ramp up in speed, but even if countywide vaccinations were to proceed at their current rate, it would still take 70 weeks to vaccinate everyone in the county, Williams said, stressing the need to continue expediting the process.

Statewide relief

Next, State Senator Monique Limon provided a breakdown of the state’s budget and what it means for the South Coast. Statewide, $90 billion is being allocated to schools to ensure a safe return; $372 million is dedicated to speeding up vaccine rollout; $353 million goes toward workforce development; and $777 million is going toward the California Jobs Initiative, which focuses on creation and retention, regional development of small businesses and climate innovation. State funding to fight California’s homelessness crisis has increased, too, with $1.75 billion being dedicated toward purchasing motels, developing shortterm community mental health facilities and purchasing/preserving housing for seniors. That number is up from $846 million last year, Limon said. The budget also allocates $1 billion to resiliency strategies, and Limon noted that state legislators will continue to advocate for regional concerns that are unique to the South Coast. “How you deal with a wildfire in Northern California is different than what we see in Santa Barbara and Ventura County,” she said. “… We are hearing your needs.”

The American Rescue Plan

Congressman Salud Carbajal spoke with optimism as he detailed the recently passed American Rescue Plan. “With the Biden administration at the helm of our Covid-19 response and the American Rescue Plan signed into law, I believe we have finally taken steps to enact a coordinated national strategy to get vaccines in the arms (of the people) and

Clockwise are Chamber President and CEO Kristen Miller; Congressman Salud Carbajal; First District County Supervisor Das Williams; Senator Monique Limón; and Assemblymember Steve Bennett.

update our testing and tracing capacity,” Carbajal said. The relief package will deliver a total of $2,000 to individuals – a $1,400 stimulus check combined with the $600 amount passed by the previous administration, Carbajal said. It also extends federal supplemental unemployment benefits and bolsters the paycheck protection program, which Carbajal said has saved over 150,000 jobs alone in our district after the first round of payments. “Economists estimate that the measures in the American Rescue Plan could bring us back to near full employment in as little as a year,” he said. Additionally, Carbajal said, the American Rescue Plan will lower child poverty rates from 14% to 6%; expand the paycheck protection plan; deploy resources to small and disadvantaged businesses; and provide $28.6 billion to establish a restaurant revitalization plan, which will allow restaurants with 20 or fewer locations to receive federal grants. “This will play a major role in assisting one of the hardest-hit sectors of our economy,” Carbajal said. The state of California will receive $15 billion in education funding to safely reopen schools. As for the South Coast specifically, the plan allocates $259.5 million to cities and counties on the Central Coast so they can continue providing essential services.

Central Coast Community Energy (3CE)

Alongside most other cities in Santa Barbara County, Carpinteria has chosen to secede from PG&E and SCE’s energy procurement and instead join the in-

Providing local news and information for the Carpinteria Valley

ter-county collective known as Central Coast Community Energy (3CE), Williams said. 3CE is composed of members from five different counties. The North County is already a part of the collective, and the South County will formally join in October 2021. “There’s a lot of advantages to 3CE,” said Williams, who serves as the vice chair of 3CE’s executive board. “One is the competitive rates, the other is local control over the procurement of wind, solar, geothermal and other energy sources … We also have been able to make investments in resiliency for power shutoffs, and in terms of expanding the electric charging infrastructure in the territory of 3CE.”

Cannabis

Cannabis permitting on the South Coast continues to be slow, Williams said. So far, 13 permits have been approved and only five have been issued. “It continues to be good for our schools and property tax revenue,” he said. “All of these entities are also paying more in property taxes, which doesn’t just benefit the county, but half of that money goes to the schools.” As a result of this year’s higher-than-expected cannabis tax revenue, the county has been able to maintain a robust staff at the Public Health Department to meet the challenges of the pandemic, Williams said. The county has also been able to avoid making cut-backs and reductions of services that could affect businesspeople.

legislation, specifically the Beach Erosion and Control Authority (BEACON) bill that serves as a joint powers agreement between Santa Barbara and Ventura County and the six coastal cities of Goleta, Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Ventura, Oxnard and Port Hueneme. “Those six cities have been working together as a joint power authority, but it’s never been recognized by the state of California,” he said. “BEACON is a very appropriate regional agency to apply for and obtain those grants that could help both counties.” Bennett is currently taking steps to get BEACON recognized by the state as a legitimate agency to receive those grants. Additionally, Bennett is involved in efforts to expand wind energy off the coast of Southern California, and in the coming years he said that he hopes to complete an exhaustive study to identify where and how transmission lines should be laid for offshore wind generation. “Wind is an absolutely essential backup to solar energy,” Bennett said. Additionally, Congressman Carbajal has put forward three bills to protect the local environment. They are the California Clean Coast Act, which would preclude future oil and gas development off the coast; the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act, which would put the highest protections on 250,000 acres of Los Padres National Forest and the Carrizo Plain; and the Land Preservation Act, which would ensure that no oil and gas drilling occurs on our public lands.

CUSD board approves demographer ahead of planned move to by-trustee elections

BY EVELYN SPENCE

The Carpinteria Unified School District board of trustees voted to hire a demographer to help the board in switching to by-trustee area elections ahead of the November 2022 elections. The board previously voted in 2018 to move to a by-trustee area election for the 2022 elections, a switch from the current at-large system used by CUSD. In an atlarge system, all eligible voters cast one vote for each open board member seat; in a by-trustee system, the area is divided into separate districts, and each voter can only vote for one candidate to represent their district. Lawyer Craig Price explained that there are currently delays in place that could prevent the CUSD board from developing maps by 2022, including delays in the release of the 2020 census results. In order to be ready in time for the November 2022 election, the district must complete all changes by spring of 2021, Price said. Board member Andy Sheaffer expressed concern about how a by-trustee election might affect Carpinteria. “It really hasn’t worked out well (for other towns) as far as representation goes, and they end up with, for lack of a better word, a weak candidate, and a weak board overseeing the entity, and then you end up with a poor quality of service,” Sheaffer said. Board member Jaime Diamond asked clarifying questions, discussing what would happen if no one ran for a seat in a specific district. Price explained that if that was the case, it would be up to the board to appoint someone. That candi-

date would have to come from the trustee area lacking a candidate.

Rite Aid sets aside 200 vaccine appointments for CUSD staff

Carpinteria’s Rite Aid Pharmacy has set aside 200 Covid-19 vaccine appointments for all of CUSD, according to Superintendent Diana Rigby. “At this point, most of our employees have the opportunity to receive their first dose, their first vaccine,” Rigby, who spoke at the CUSD board meeting on March 9, said. Rigby said the district expects that all its employees will be vaccinated by the end of March. The district is also still preparing to welcome middle and high school students back beginning Monday, March 29, following the prediction that the county will move into the Red Tier next week, according to Rigby. “We’re very excited,” Rigby said. Both CMS and CHS will follow a hybrid model.

District budget

Maureen Fitzgerald said there have been “no real changes” in the district’s current revenue budget, with only a slight increase of $72,772. For the district’s budgeted expenditures, there have been two major changes: an increase in legal services of $360,000 projected through June, and an increase in the district’s grounds budget of nearly $30,000. Fitzgerald attributed the “significant” increase to grievances and complaints

Starshine Roshell to speak at AWC-SB’s April meeting

Award-winning journalist and popular columnist Starshine Roshell will present “Truth Decay – The Battle to Prevent Lies and Misinformation from Overwhelming Reality” at the Santa Barbara chapter of the Association for Women in Communications (AWC-SB) meeting on April 7, at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom. The public is welcome to attend. Be it Russian trolls planting fake narratives, conspiracy theorists colluding against a perceived enemy or well-meaning citizens sharing misleading memes, the current deluge of information has made it all too easy to disseminate fiction and falsehoods that can topple businesses, spread pandemics and even undermine democracy. Veteran newswoman, educator and truth-talker Roshell will share a look at how we got here, why it matters and the small-but-powerful things one can do to help. A passionate storyteller, award-winning journalist and content producer for LinkedIn Learning, Roshell has been named Best Columnist by Santa Barbara Independent readers for 11 years running. She has written for national magazines, interviewed scads of celebs and taught journalism at UCSB and Santa Barbara City College. She won the AWC’s national Headliner Award in 2019, and the local chapter’s Woman of Achievement award in 2011. Her most recent book is “Lather, Rage, Repeat: Frank Talk on Night Sweats, Day Drinking & Twitter.” The meeting also will include its Member Spotlight portion. April’s focus

She stated most of the money went toward devices to help with connectivity, as well as instructional materials. For the proposed 2021-2022 budget, Fitzgerald said the district’s expenditures are increasing by $1.3 million. The 20212022 budget is not yet finalized. “While we’re not deficit spending, we are still increasing our expenditures at a higher rate than our revenues,” she said.

Donations

The board accepted donations from

the California Avocado Festival and the Rotary Club of Carpinteria. The California Avocado Festival donated $750 toward the Future Farmers of America Club, and the Rotary Club donated $30 for music notation software. “[The Rotary Club] has been a huge supporter of the music program for a long, long time, and they’ve basically help keep the music program intact about eight years ago when our budget was really impacted, and their continuation of this program and all the other programs they do is fantastic,” Sheaffer said.

Closed session

During a closed session, the board voted “to deny an employee’s request for the board to further consider a complaint,” according to a report by board member Jayme Bray. The board also discussed labor negotiations during the closed session. No action was taken, Bray said.

City releases environmental impact report for Rincon Trail project, solicits public comments

BY DEBRA HERRICK

The city of Carpinteria has released the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Carpinteria Rincon Trail project. With the release, a 45-day public review and comment period has opened that will close at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 26, 2021. Extending from the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue, in the city of Carpinteria, to Rincon Beach County Park in Santa Barbara County, the proposed trail is 16 feet wide and 2,800 feet long and includes a 160-foot bridge over the train tracks owned by Union Pacific Railroad. The new, shared-use trail would provide a dedicated connection from Carpinteria Avenue to Rincon Beach along the existing benched slope adjacent to U.S. Highway 101. Future plans for Carpinteria’s Coastal Vista Trail would ultimately extend it from Padaro Lane to Rincon. The majority of the proposed trail route is located on old, terraced road and rail cuts. Most of the area’s natural landforms have been mechanically manipulated over the years as a result of road, highway and railroad construction dating back to the 1800s. A small unsanctioned trail exists in some areas, including the portion of the proposed trail that goes from the railroad crossing to the Rincon Beach County Park parking lot. The Rincon Trail is planned to function as the local section of the California Coastal Trail, connecting on the south end to the recently completed bicycle and pedestrian path constructed with the Caltrans HOV project from Carpinteria to the Mobil Pier in Ventura County. Additionally, the city of Carpinteria is in the process of acquiring an easement over two parcels that would complete the Carpinteria Bluffs Trail from the Carpinteria State Beach to the Rincon Trail. At both ends of the trail are pre-existing parking areas; Rincon Beach County Park has a paved lot and at Carpinteria Avenue there is an existing dirt lot which would continue to provide informal parking for the proposed project. There is also on-street parking near the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue and at the southern shoulder of Carpinteria Avenue from SR 150 to the terminus, which accommodates roughly 24 cars. The environmental impact report, prepared by Dudek, indicated several areas of potentially significant impact, however, if the city adheres to proposed mitigation measures, the impact can be reduced to “less than significant,” according to the report. Among areas of impact, the report noted scenic views, biological resources including sensitive wildlife and plant species, migratory wildlife corridors, soil erosion and loss of topsoil, and hydrology and water quality. According to Dudek, the proposed trail does not connect important habitat areas used by large or small wildlife species. U.S. Highway 101 and adjacent chain link fencing along the southbound lanes of the highway provide impediments to wildlife movement between the bluffs and more inland areas. Wildlife in the

The proposed Rincon Trail would provide a dedicated connection from Carpinteria Avenue to Rincon Beach along the existing benched slope adjacent to U.S. Highway 101, including a pedestrian bridge over the train tracks. area include mountain lions, California black bears, striped skunks and northern raccoons. Additionally, minor changes to wind and weather patterns in a very local setting are not an impediment to birds moving long distance, according to the EIR, particularly since the overall height of the slope should remain at the same elevation. Wind uplift patterns will be modified by the proposed trail. The vertical airflow velocity will be reduced from 10 to 30% relative to current conditions, according to the report’s airflow analysis. For altitudes relevant to paragliding and soaring activities, the reduction is expected to be closer to 30%. According to the airflow analysis, the anticipated changes in velocity and turbulence would occur within a short linear distance relative to the distance traveled for a migrating avian species, and avian species regularly adjust to changing weather conditions. Concerns from the paragliding and hang-gliding community that the launching site over Bates Beach would be impacted were also addressed in the EIR, albeit without recommendations for modifying the trail to preserve the advantageous flying conditions that the soaring community had requested. “Comment letters assert that such soaring activities have been carried out in the air space over the trail alignment property for several decades, and that the air space is one of a limited number of opportunities for soaring within the coastal environment in Santa Barbara County,” noted EIR authors. “While paragliders and hang-gliders have capitalized on bluff-related uplift during favorable wind conditions to launch from private properties along the bluff faces above the proposed bicycle and pedestrian path alignment, the proposed trail corridor

Pacific Village

The soaring community’s launching site over Bates Beach would be impacted by the Rincon Trail. The reduction in airflow velocity for altitudes relevant to paragliding and hangliding will be reduced by 30%. has been dedicated to transportation uses since its construction in the late 1800s (railroad then state highway) … Therefore, while the soaring community has taken advantage of favorable wind and uplift phenomena associated with the existing topography within the trail corridor, neither launching nor landing areas within the trail corridor have been contemplated or formalized in recreation plans adopted by the city of Carpinteria or county of Santa Barbara.” The report authors continued, “It should be noted that Rincon County Beach Park prohibits the take-off or landing of any type of gliders … In addition, UPRR prohibits pedestrian access across their alignment (precluding direct access to the bluff area that generates the best uplift). Thus, the typical launch area for paragliding and hang gliding to gain access to the air space over the trail alignment is currently from private property adjacent to the trail alignment, not from a sanctioned use public property. The private property owner also retains the option of prohibiting paragliders and

hang gliders from using the property as a launch area at any time.” The Rincon Trail DEIR can be read at carpinteriaca.gov. A copy is also available at Carpinteria City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Ave. and at the Carpinteria Branch Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave. On April 13 at 4 p.m., the Rincon DEIR will be considered by Carpinteria’s Environmental Review Committee at a virtual public meeting. Comments on the analysis and proposed mitigation measures can be submitted at the April 13 meeting and in writing by April 26 at 5 p.m. Written comments can be sent to Nick Bobroff, principal planner, Community Development Department, 5775 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria, CA 93013 or by email at: nickb@ci.carpinteria.ca.us. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, assistance is also available to participate in the April 13 meeting or to make a comment.

At the time, Whitney and Gracie (age 3.5) were making bracelets together and decided to sell them and donate the money to help our community. Whitney asked Gracie who she’d like to help, and she replied, “Girls and fairies.” This is when Whitney knew to call Carly Bass at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, since she wasn’t sure how to reach the local fairies!

The sign at the overlook asks visitors not to bring their dogs inside. There are two reasons: First, the bluff at the overlook is not very steep, and on many occasions, dogs have spotted the seals and run down, which always flushes the seals into the ocean. Wolves prey on harbor seals. Second, not surprisingly, dogs sometimes bark upon seeing the seals, which may also cause a disturbance. Dogs should be leashed, or take turns holding the dog outside when coming to visit.

Visitors

Beachwalkers often ask Sealwatch volunteers stationed on the beach at the closure signs how they can see the seals. Access to the overlook is by the public trail beside the railroad tracks from the east end of the state park past Tar Pits Park and the Chevron parking lot. A walk from Bailard Avenue is another option. A security guard deters trespassing on Chevron property in the parking lot and by the pier.

Info

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 carpsealwatch@gmail.com. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.

Surf ‘n’ Suds (+Buds) pairs craft beer and cannabis farming

April 10 virtual festival features farm tours and locally made products The brewer, the shaper and the cannabis maker? Surf ‘n’ Suds is proposing an update to the old rhyme on Saturday, April 10 with the first ever Surf ‘n’ Suds (+Buds). The popular Central Coast beer fest has folded virtual cannabis farm tours and product information into its celebration of craft beers and surf culture. “When we launched in 2014, we merged the obvious. Carpinteria has a craft-brew scene that swings high above its weight class on the Central Coast. We have Rincon Point and the surf culture that defines our area. Now we have a third leg to the stool, cannabis farming, which everyone is really curious to learn more about. It was an obvious next step with our audience,” said Andres Nuño, co-founder of En Fuego Events, the parent company of Surf ‘n’ Suds. Surf ‘n’ Suds (+Buds) on April 10 will feature six craft breweries, including three Carpinteria craft breweries – Rincon Brewery, Island Brewing Company and brewLAB – and three local cannabis brands – Autumn Brands, Pacific Stone Brand and Glass House Farms. Each cannabis farm will lead festival attendees on virtual farm tours and discuss the inner workings of responsibly grown cannabis in Carpinteria. The local cannabis farmers group CARP Growers is sponsoring the event. “Cannabis farmers have a great story to share, and we’ve missed inviting the public onto farms for tours over the past year, when gatherings have been off the table,” said Tristan Strauss, CARP Growers president. “It’s an honor and testament to the hard work of local cannabis farmers that we’re being woven into an event that celebrates the best of Carpinteria Valley.” Ticketholders to Surf ‘n’ Suds (+Buds) get a beer flight of six beers, a souvenir glass and cannabis brand swag mailed to their homes. They’ll also get a promo code for dispensaries in the tri-counties to apply a 30% discount toward the purchase of select products from the featured cannabis brands. Ticket buyers can use the promotional code at these participating dispensaries: The Farmacy of Santa Barbara, Megan’s Organic Market (San Luis Obispo) and SafePort Cannabis (Port Hueneme). In addition to featuring local brews

The event will highlight Carpinteria’s three craft breweries, as well as three local cannabis brands – Autumn Brands, Pacific Stone Brand and Glass House Farms. and buds, the virtual festival will explore other Carpinteria-made products like surfboards, candy and coffee. “We saw this opportunity to not only get an inside look at cannabis farming, but really to showcase the incredible people and products that come from Carpinteria,” Nuño said. True to its well-established theme, Surf ‘n’ Suds (+Buds) will feature limited-release beers from other leaders in the industry. Attendees get a surprise sample from Lagunitas Brewing Company and Hop Valley Brewing as part of their athome beer flight. Carpinteria’s breweries also have unique brews up their sleeves for the event. While there aren’t any hop farms

in Carpinteria, the cannabis plant and hop plant are closely related. “We look forward to elevating the Carpinteria vibe throughout the Central Coast,” Nuño said. “Anyone who has tried cannabis can tell right away when drinking a stronger IPA that there are similar smells and flavors. The profile is close to hops.” Tickets are on sale at surfbeerfest.com for $50.

Spotlight on Carpinteria photographers

In this weekly series, local photographers share their recent work and inspiration with CVN readers.

Capturing Carpinteria PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

When I landed in Carpinteria nine years ago, I had no idea how this town would change my life. First thing every morning, I take a beach walk. It clears my head, adds to my sea glass collection and gets me my 10,000 steps. I’ve made friends with many people and dogs on these walks which inspired me to publish “Dogs of Carpinteria,” volumes 1, 2 and 3. We have so many amazing photographers in Carpinteria because, well, look around! There are photo moments everywhere for all of us to capture in our own way. I have a huge collection on my phone and on my computer. I’m so happy to share some of my favorites.

The Carpinteria High School girls volleyball team swept the Fillmore Flash in three straight sets for a successful season opener on Friday, March 12. Alex Zapata, outside hitter for the Warriors, had an outstanding day with 16 kills and nine aces.

Girls tennis notches first win of the year

Asher Smith wins the season-opening sprint for the Warriors at Santa Ynez.

Carpinteria boys water polo falls to Santa Ynez

The Carpinteria High School varsity boys water polo team visited the Santa Ynez Pirates for the first game in their 12-day season. They started off with a strong lead over the Pirates, leading five to two at halftime. Each possession was tense with good defensive play from both teams. The Pirates clawed back and forced overtime, putting the score at 6-6 by the end of the fourth quarter. The extra 3-minute quarters were the same in intensity, with the Pirates scoring multiple goals in the first overtime and the Warriors scoring back on the second overtime. Unfortunately, for the Warriors, the Pirates edged them out with a single goal, losing 8-9 at the end of overtime. Despite the loss, players still had notable performances. Junior Coby Gonzalez played a tight defensive game while also scoring two crisp goals from the right wing. Freshman Asher Smith showed that despite his first-year status, he is ready to play with great positioning on offense and defense and two goals from the two-meter position. “With two seniors, some of the junior class not in attendance and three strong underclassmen, there is a bright future ahead of the Warriors if they continue to work hard and push to become champions,” said coach Sergio Castaneda.

The CHS girls tennis team got off to a windy, rainy and cold start to their delayed season, but shivered their way to a home win in a Citrus Coast League match versus Nordhoff. “I really think the highlight of the match for all of the players was just hitting their first ball,” said coach Charles Bryant. “It has been a long time with a lot of nervousness on both sides of the court, but I was impressed with both teams, their sportsmanship and their discipline through these constrained times.” The Warriors were led in singles by Zahra Porinsh who went 2-0 on the day. Silke Leonard’s first high school action was also success as she went 2-1. “She looked like a different player in her second and third sets and was hitting with a confidence that was masked by nerves in the first set,” Bryant said. Neida Garcia also went 1-1 on the day. In doubles, the tandem of Natalia Perez and Cassandra Maya Prado went 2-1. Abbie Delwiche and Valerie Ojeda also won both of their matches. The team of Gabbie Smith and Fiona Casbarro went 2-0 Freshman Silke Leonard went 2-1 together in their first varsity action. The in her first varsity action. Warriors’ last point was scored by Nansy Velasquez and Stephanie Ramirez.   “Overall, it was a good opening day match,” Bryant said. “We had tough conditions but the girls fought through them and seemed very determined to notch their first win in over 17 months.” Carpinteria is now 1-0 overall and 1-0 in the Citrus Coast League.

Ways to overcome the Covid doldrums CVN

A MONTHLY MUSE MELINDA WITTWER A little over a year ago I was in the hospital getting a new knee, happy and content that my life would be better with greater mobility and less pain. Then Covid-19 started infecting our world, and life became one of worry, fear, tension and loneliness. But now there is finally some improvement, hope and vaccines! And goats – lots of cute, bouncy, absolutely endearing baby goats. You might ask, “Now what do goats have to do with fighting Covid-19?” It’s really quite simple. Nobody can resist these newborn bundles of energy. One moment one kid is trying to make friends with the sheep in the next pen, while the tiniest kid is still trying to climb into the water dish. Another kid has to stop for a snack from her mom before prancing around and around stumbling. These seven kids were born between March 10 and March 14 and one or more kids might be born in the next few weeks. Because I walk almost every day, I have become acquainted with a group of goats who live in an enclosure along my daily route. After the first of the year, it became quite apparent that these female goats were pregnant, and as the next few months slid by, I wondered how these soon-to-be moms could even stand up since their bodies were so swollen. After a while, I kept expecting to see new babies as I strolled by, but no chance. Then, as luck would have it, rain came, so did the kids, and I missed out because I was home staying dry. Now, every day I can’t wait to walk down to the goat pen and be entertained by these dancing creatures. I even got to hold one for a few minutes one evening before she was put to bed with her mom in their “goat house.” Just watching these seven tiny critters prance and wobble and curl up to sleep makes my day better, my life happier, and helps me feel more removed from worries about our pandemic.

SALE PENDING

The general public might not have a gang of baby kids around to help make the virus woes go away. So, I did a little research to pass on to all of us who just want our old lives back. Here are some suggestions from Ken Goodman, LCSW, for helping overcome the virus blues. • Media distancing. A little TV input is more than enough. • Don’t worry. Take action. • Focus on the present odds. • Try not to overreact every time you cough or sneeze. • Focus on being productive. Try new ways of enjoying life, maybe even quilting. • Exercise and/or meditate. • Do not be compulsive or over the top about cleanliness. Just follow the CDC guidelines. • Try to live as normally as possible. • Be kind to yourself and others, and be positive. • If all else fails, get professional help. For a little amusement, I have rounded up some of the funnier comments inspired by Covid, hoping we can find some humor to lighten our load. • Reading won’t solve our problems, but again neither will housework. • Not all heroes wear capes, but a whole dedicated bunch of them wear scrubs. • I’m getting tired of being part of a major historical event. • Resting is productive. • Never did I think that I would go to the bank, wearing a mask, and ask for money. • I promised myself I would do things differently today, so I’m sitting at the other end of the couch. • It took “Click it or ticket” to get people to wear a seatbelt. I wonder if “Mask it or casket” might work. • The most unused household items during the Covid quarantine are bras. • For the first time in history, we can save the human race by lying in front of the TV and doing nothing. • Our grandparents were called to war. We’re being asked to practice social distancing and stop hoarding toilet paper.

Rotar y Club of Carpinteria presents

2021 THE PREMIER OF OUR VIRTUAL TALENT SHOWCASE IS SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, APRIL17! C A R P I N T E R I A R O TA R Y. O R G

Thank you to our title sponsor Dr. Roland Rotz joined the Rotary Club of Carpinteria in 1999 and has since become a dedicated volunteer.

Volunteering takes center stage for Roland Rotz CVN

MISSION POSSIBLE LAUREN GRAF If you have ever watched the Carpinteria Rotary Club Talent Showcase, you are guaranteed to find one delighted volunteer there every year: Dr. Roland Rotz. Rotz and his wife of 40 years, Jody Giacopuzzi, a clinical social worker, moved to Carpinteria from San Diego in 1997, and Rotz opened his psychology practice out of the Castro House. The pair are a dynamic duo as both are dedicated to helping others. Together they raised twin daughters, now in their 30s, who live in Sacramento. While the family later moved to Ventura, Rotz wanted to maintain the connections he created in Carpinteria and kept his practice local. One reason he felt so tied to the Carpinteria community was his involvement with the Rotary Club. When he first arrived, he forged many friendships through the club and their service activities. One of his passion projects was organizing the Talent Showcase. “I had grown up with music in the family, and I had always known the value of music; and we’ve really seen how that is becoming a challenge, especially in Carpinteria schools,” Rotz said. “Fortunately, the Rotary Club of Carpinteria decided to step up, and so we started sponsoring musical instruments. That really was the kick-off for a lot of the things I’ve been involved in in Carpinteria.” While the 2020 annual showcase was cancelled due to Covid-19, this year Rotz is working with Rotary to put on a virtual talent show in late April. When did you join Rotary Club of Carpinteria? I started in 1999. It was kind of a slow start. I hadn’t really found my place there in many ways for a couple of years. Not long after, though, Lin Graf invited me to be secretary of the club, and that’s when, very quickly, I became very engaged and a part of things. Are you involved with any other volunteer groups? I spend most of my time volunteering in Carpinteria. I am also on the board for the Carpinteria Arts Center and I’m in my second year now. Obviously with Covid, it’s been a huge challenge trying to find a way to keep the doors open. And then just

this last year, I started getting involved in the Alcazar Theatre. It has always been a passion to help that theater thrive and survive. Before that, I was very involved in the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce. I was chairman of the board and served on the board for a number of years, over six, I think. It’s been a great experience working with them, seeing the organization evolve over time. Who or what inspired you to volunteer? I’d put it like this: the main theme for Rotary International is “service above self,” and I saw the volunteer opportunities that I wanted to be a part of, like cleaning up part of the creek, helping out, building things, the Talent Showcase. I would also say that my personal relationship with Dave Powdrell has been an influence. Just hanging with him and the ideas that would come about, I saw the possibilities for helping, giving back and participating in the community. What have been your most memorable experiences volunteering with the Talent Show? I’m one of the primaries for soliciting different performers to come out on stage. It’s always been my job to be kind of the gatekeeper, kind of like the entry and exit for on and off stage as we kind of identify the performers and develop a relationship with them. It’s always amazing to see the tension, the nervousness going on, and then just the joy after the crowd cheers. Another one, is in a talent showcase when there’s likely at least 80 people crossing the stage between individuals and groups and dance groups and large music groups and things like that. In that context, most of those people are in the green room, which is this big tent out back behind the Alcazar Theatre. And in this green room, there’s this low-level buzz of energy. It’s a certain amount of nervous tension. You can hear someone practice, somebody going through their song, going through the steps in their mind. You know we have the screen on so people can see who’s performing and what it looks like. And there’s such an amazing energy that comes when you see that, and just to be a part of that – that’s one of the most exciting things. Is there anything you’d like to say to summarize your experience? I would say it like this: volunteering in Carpinteria is always about standing on the shoulders of giants. All of the Carpinterians of the year – I’m so fortunate to introduce them at the Chamber banquet – these are amazing people. From a psychological standpoint, you want to not

Vaccination clinic comes to Carpinteria It was a weekend to remember for many Carpinterians as 250 people received doses of the Moderna vaccine in Carpinteria on Saturday, March 13. The Public Health Department held the vaccination clinic at Carpinteria’s County Health Clinic located at 931 Walnut Ave. Community members who live or work in Carpinteria and are in the current eligibility tier (those who are 65 and over, educators, childcare providers, agricultural workers, grocery store and food workers and emergency service providers) were permitted to make appointments for Saturday’s clinic. On Saturday, March 27, the Public Health Department will hold another clinic for eligible community members of the same category at the same location from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. An appointment is required to receive a vaccine. For more information, call (888) 503-0515 and visit calvax.org.

ABOVE, Kelly Saenz explains possible side effects to those waiting the required 15 minutes to make sure they feel well before leaving the vaccination site. LEFT, Andrew Nash receives part one of the Moderna vaccine from RN Lorena Loomis. BOTTOM LEFT, Carpinteria Mayor Wade Nomura received his first Moderna vaccine from Dr. Margaret Dodds.

Santa Barbara Public Health Department Director Van DoReynoso (right) and Assistant Deputy Director Dana Gamble worked to ensure that everything ran smoothly at Saturday’s vaccination clinic.
