A female great horned owl appears to land in a eucalyptus tree at Lookout Park in Summerland. Ensnared by a piece of line for most of a day last week, the cawing noise of harassing crows alerted early morning park visitors to the situation. See page 19 for more. (Spoiler alert: the owl was rescued and is now recuperating at the Ojai Raptor Center.)

New State Beach Visitor Center is for locals too By Jay Bushey
Carpinteria State Beach’s new and improved Visitor Center opens next week with exhibits that highlight Carpinteria’s natural, cultural and biological treasures. The renovation will be celebrated with a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Aug. 19 at 1 p.m. “We really hope that the center will serve as a springboard for visitors. They can come here to learn about the park’s history and then go out and explore it for themselves,” said Supervising Ranger David Wilson. Wilson believes that understanding Carpinteria’s history is an important part of appreciating the area today. “Many park visitors don’t realize that they’re camping on what used to be an open mine, or that they’re walking the same trails once walked by the Chumash people, or that the tar on their feet has been naturally seeping from the ground for centuries,” he said. To help visitors get a fuller experience of Carpinteria’s history, the center’s exhibits are designed to be interactive. Guests can feel what it’s like to be an animal stuck in tar, lift the spade of a 19th century asphalt miner, run their fingers along Chumash tools, and hold locally collected sea stars, mussels and sea urchins. Perhaps the most exciting feature of the visitor center is a newly created salt-water aquarium. The 400-gallon aquarium hosts a beautiful collection of live fish, crabs, shrimp and various other tidepool creatures, all of which have been collected locally. Planning for the new visitor center began in 2009 with the Carpinteria State Beach Interpretation Master Plan, which identified the park’s diverse resources and proposed specific strategies for park development. The renovation of the visitor center was one of the prominent proposals outlined in the plan. “The original visitor center was less than half the size of the current one,” explained Wilson. “The roof was starting to be affected by termites and rot, and the aquarium didn’t meet accessibility standards anymore. The whole thing needed an overhaul.” The much-needed renovation was made possible by a $3 million grant from the Nature Education Facilities Program, a good portion of which went directly into the visitor center’s development. With the plans outlined and the funds in place, the original visitor center closed in 2014 so the renovation process could begin. Wilson is very satisfied with how the project has come to fruition. “When the doors open on the 19th, this place will look better than it has in many, many years,” he said proudly. He went on to explain, however, that this is just one step in a big undertaking. “We still want to expand the variety of life in our tidepool aquarium and create a display to show the local dive team’s collection process. We would also love to expand the hours of the visitor

It will be open weekly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and entry is free to the public.

Funding is a must to finish Franklin
In response to Carl Stucky’s letter in last weeks Coastal View News, first I want to thank him for his work in Carpinteria. I understand that he was one of the early volunteers who put sweat equity into the first phase of the trail. Without his hard work and those who worked with him, none of us would be able to use the trail today. I also appreciate his commitment to the bluffs and his desire to quickly have the fundraising completed for that wonderful project. I wish we lived in the world that Carl speaks of in his letter. A world in which we could simply go take our picks and shovels and work our way to the top to the Franklin Trail unhampered by government regulations, permits and EIR reports. We would barely need to do any fundraising and simply lean into the work of the trail. We would be over the top of the mountain in no time. Yet we live in 2016, in a world that requires, probably for good reason, permits, studies, reports and nearly endless costly hoops to jump through on the way to the top. The great news is that Carpinteria is a generous community. There is enough money, willing donors and volunteers to make all the community dreams come true. We just all need to apply our own talents to the projects we love, and the miracles we need will happen. Franklin Trail only needs a bit over $50,000 to get over the top of the mountain thanks to those who have generously donated their time and skills. We are nearly there. I think the trail has made us all better people. We hike together, we are more fit and we now can get up above our beautiful town and look down to see Carpinteria, to see that we are indeed a small community that creates miracles every day.

Too many seals, too many sharks
Humans always feel the need to protect, which is fine. They just do not understand when to lift protections. Too many seals wreck havoc on fish populations, which in turn puts the hurt on the seals themselves. (You might want to look at how many pounds of fish they eat a day including young halibut and rockfish. Our local reefs are not same as they were 40 years ago). And the overpopulation of seals brings in the white sharks that everyone knows feed off seal colonies. Now we are seeing more young and adult whites along our coast. I have been a commercial fisherman, sport fisherman and a surfer for most of my adult life and, believe me, the times are changing when it comes to our coastal waters. I believe it’s only a matter of time before there is a tragedy. There have already been some close calls. I say its time to lift these protections and let nature try and get back to a good balance.

expand TK “to admit any child who turns 5 in the school year,” stated the Coastal View News story published last week. What if your birthday does not fall in the school year? My son, Andrew, was born in August and will enter kindergarten in 2017. He, along with many others, is not allowed to enroll in TK. So all the older kids born in September through June will be able to prepare for kindergarten but the youngest kids born in July and August cannot! Is that fair? Older, more mature kids will get the extra help whereas the youngest, least mature kids will get no help whatsoever! Does that sound fair? Come on, CUSD Board President Andy Sheaffer, “cite the need to do what’s right” and admit any child who turns 5 before September. That would be the fair and right thing to do.

Don’t fool yourself; Trump is dangerous
In response to “Look at the parties, not the people,” by Sanderson Smith: I had to read the letter about 97 times to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. Smith told us to “Put aside the views and personalities of the two party candidates,” while claiming, “Flawed individual personalities will not ruin our country.” Our democracy is an experiment and nothing is set in stone. If Smith doesn’t believe a president can irreparably destroy the tenets that make this country great, then I’m not sure he understands history. Trump displays literally all the characteristics of the most dangerous demagogues the world has ever seen. The classic techniques of the demagogue are scapegoating (usually a different race or religion), fear mongering, lying, moving others through personal magnetism, attacking the media, personal insults and ridicule, gross oversimplification and accusing opponents of weakness and disloyalty (witness Trump’s attacks on any Republican who pushes back or points out his obvious shortcomings.) Trump isn’t crazy. He’s a power hungry, incoherent narcissist with no guilt, conscience or remorse. Completely uninformed with no range of intellectual curiosity, his unremittingly unpredictable and outrageous temperament Smith wishes us to “put aside” and think of other things. If Smith disagrees with this, he can consider a letter from 50 GOP national security experts who wrote that Trump would be “the most reckless president in American history.” The letter continues, “He is unable or unwilling to separate truth

from falsehood. He does not encourage conflicting views. He lacks self-control and acts impetuously. He cannot tolerate personal criticism. He has alarmed our closest allies with his erratic behavior. All of these are dangerous qualities in an individual who aspires to be president and commander in chief, with command of the U.S nuclear arsenal.” If Smith wishes to downplay Trump’s potential, he is free to do so. But the majority won’t.
Mike Rupert Carpinteria
Last week Sanderson M. Smith encouraged us to “look at the parties, not the people.” I took this to heart but in my attempt at evaluating the Republican Party, I immediately found myself in a quandary. One year ago, the party “leaders” vehemently stated that they would not support a candidate expounding bigotry and intolerance. Yet now, those very same “leaders” are endorsing such a candidate. Do their moral and ethical values change with the polls? I looked further to health care. Following years of discussion and debate by both parties, we now have the Affordable Care Act. The Republican Party vows to abolish it. What is the Party’s plan to address the escalating costs and provide affordable medical care? Rescinding the ACA seems to be a very incomplete plan. Regarding international policy: The last Republican administration followed a policy of unilateral global interference and aggression, disregard for the United Nations and other international organizations, resulting in two wars, nearly bankrupting our country, killing thousands of innocent people, and leading to the economic collapse likened to the Great Depression. Looking for a glimmer of hope, how does the party policy address the rampant violence in our country? Surely there is a policy or at least a strategy to control the ability of criminals and mentally unstable individuals from having easy access to guns? But no, instead we have “the right to bear arms,” not to mention the gun lobby. Apparently these murderous weapons have to be available when we need them; collateral damage is a small price to pay for this given right. Perhaps later I will look at the policies
of other parties, yet I hate to give up on the Republicans. Surely there is something here that will give me a sense of credibility and trust?
Scott Van Der Kar Carpinteria
Why is the media silent on Hillary Clinton’s health issues? What is the cause of her incessant coughing, facial ticks, seizures, mental freezes, and uncontrollable laughing? Why does she have a medic accompany her who carries an injector pen of Diazepam, which halts seizures? Does she have a brain injury from the blood clot after her concussion, or is she suffering from mini strokes? This is important, America. Do we want a president with such serious health issues during such stressful and dangerous times?

Has anybody else received a $37.50 ticket for parking over the white “Tparking” in downtown Linden Avenue parking spaces? I was surprised on a recent Saturday morning when I ran into Reynaldo’s for less than five minutes to pick up a cake (for a memorial service, no less!) to come out to discover a ticket on my windshield. I was less than 12 inches over the white demarcation line. These are apparently quite common—292 have been written in the past fiscal year which equals a little more than one ticket per weekday. That seems high for our small town. Sylvia Echeverria kindly met with me at City Hall and supplied the facts promptly about T-parking tickets adding that they don’t track complaints like mine: “You either pay or contest a ticket.” So I am complaining here for the record, after having paid the ticket. Apparently, these white T’s were put there to appease the merchants—so no RVs park on our main drag. But might it not have been easier to post a sign that says NO RV parking? I love our sweet town—which I tell friends I call “Mayberry By the Sea”—and wondered if maybe a warning might be fairer? Yes, my parking was a bit sloppy that early Saturday morning, but I never imagined it would warrant a ticket. I can assure you I won’t do it again!

CUSD supe receives prestigious Edu-Preneur award
Micheline Miglis, superintendent of Carpinteria Uniﬁed School District, was honored with the prestigious EduPreneur award at the annual Focus on Freshmen 2016 conference held July 17 to 19 in Los Angeles. Academic Innovations, Inc. recognized Miglis for her innovation, vision and creativity in leading thousands of students on a positive path toward academic focus and success in high school, college and beyond with the Carpinteria High School program Get Focused. The program has students earning college credits as they develop a 10-year plan for success, beginning in the ninthgrade. “Micheline Miglis exudes passion, drive SUBMITTED PHOTO and determination, all qualities that she helps CUSD Superintendent Micheline Miglis with her instill in students on a Edu-Preneur award alongside Olympian and daily basis,” said Mindy motivational speaker Dain Blanton. Bingham, founder and president of Academic Innovations. “Her entrepreneurial spirit has transformed the lives of students, families and teachers in immeasurable ways.”
TK enrollment open through Sept. 30
An Aug. 9 decision by the Carpinteria Uniﬁed School District Board of Education re-opened the window to enroll students who turn 5 anytime in the 2016/2017 school year in Transitional Kindergarten. Families who would like to enroll their children must do so by Sept. 30. Traditionally, the TK program has served children who turn 5 in the fall and would have entered Kindergarten before the state shifted the cutoff date from Dec. 2 to Sept. 2. The board of education ofﬁcially extended the cutoff date to June 30 for the free program that serves as a stepping stone to kindergarten. Enrollment packets can be picked up from any CUSD elementary school ofﬁce, and students must provide address veriﬁcation, birth certiﬁcate or passport, proof of immunizations, record of TB test within the last year and a copy of the child’s last physical or proof of appointment date for the next physical. Parents should call their home school for more information: Aliso, 684-4539; Canalino, 684-4141; Family School, 684-5481; and Summerland, 969-1011.

Donna Ruth Ryan 12/12/1923 – 8/4/2016
Donna Ryan passed away peacefully on Aug. 4, 2016 at the age of 92 surrounded by her loving family. Donnna was born Donna Ruth Seeman in Fairbury, Neb. on Dec. 12, 1923. In 1927 she moved with her family to Culver City, Calif. where she grew up and found her lifelong love of the beach. During World War II, Donna worked for Douglas Aircraft and Army Intelligence. When the war ended, she went to work for the Los Angeles Police Department as a records clerk. It was here she met her future husband Jim Ryan, a police ofﬁcer with the department. Donna and Jim were married in 1949 and a year later she gave birth to twin boys Patrick and Michael. The twins were soon followed by two more boys, Daniel and Timothy. Donna and Jim moved to the San Fernando Valley in 1950 and raised their boys in a wonderful neighborhood on Capps Avenue in Reseda. While raising her four boys, Donna enjoyed writing, sewing, playing bridge with the neighbors and spending summers camping at the Kern River. In 1989, after Jim had retired, Donna rekindled her love of the beach and they moved to Carpinteria. Living in Carpinteria, she enjoyed long walks on the beach as well as collecting sea shells and sea glass. Donna enjoyed the many trips she went on and was especially fond of the family trips to Yosemite with her kids and grandkids. She was blessed to have had 62 wonderful years with her husband, Jim, who passed away in 2012. Donna is survived by her four sons, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Donna was a true treasure to all that knew her and she will be greatly missed. ADVERTISEMENT

Gal pals win bike
Two local girls finished their summer on a high note. Makayla Halley, 9, and Sydney Harvey, 10, found themselves with a new set of wheels after their names were drawn in the Coastal View News summer bike raffle sponsored by Carp Sports. The girls had initially intended to share the prize, but decided after the drawing to donate the brand new bike to someone in need. Halley and Harvey are neighbors and friends. They biked through town this summer solving clues in the CVN treasure hunt and winning raffle tickets along the way. Harvey mentioned that the game reminded her of playing detective, which she and Halley spent lots of time doing last year. Both girls said the hunt got them out of the house and following clues to learn more about their town and its restaurants and shops. Their names went into a box with those of many other readers who played the word jumble, letter search, trivia quiz and treasure hunt featured weekly in the centerspread of the newspaper. After the drawing, the girls decided to pay their win forward. They realized that sharing a bike could get tricky and that lots of people don’t already have bikes like they do. Now Halley and Harvey, who are both Girl Scouts, have the tough task of choosing a person in need for their bike donation.

One more time
A uniformed officer, driving a marked Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office patrol car, observed a man driving a white sedan, and knew the individual to be an unlicensed/suspended driver from past recent contacts. “I had arrested (name withheld) a few days earlier in the same vehicle for drug and paraphernalia possession.” The vehicle had expired registration, tinted front windows and bald tires. “(The suspect) was visibly shaking as I stood at the driver’s door,” the deputy reported. After speaking with another deputy who arrived on the scene, the first deputy noticed a sunglasses case on the parking lot surface that had not been there when the deputy initially made the traffic stop. “The area had also been free of pedestrians and other vehicles during this time period,” the deputy noted. “The sunglasses case was also very suspect since (the suspect) had had methamphetamine and a used methamphetamine smoking pipe in a sunglasses case when I had arrested him earlier in the week.” A “wellused” meth pipe and a plastic canister of dried marijuana buds were inside the sunglasses case. The deputy arrested the 34-year-old man, who, the deputy said, “later made an unsolicited statement that the pipe and marijuana was his, but that he did not have any drugs.” The man was transported to Santa Barbara County Jail, where he was booked.
No pictures please
A caller reported that a male subject was taking photographs of young women on the beach at Linden Avenue on Aug. 6. The caller identified the man to the responding deputy, who said that the man told him that he was taking pictures of the ocean. Asked if the deputy could look at the photos, the man consented. Three pictures of the beach had the same young woman in a bikini, standing “in ways that accentuated her buttocks.” A deputy searched the beach for the female but couldn’t find her, then asked the man if he could delete the pictures and the man consented. Deputies asked if they could search his car, and the man also agreed. Deputies found nothing unusual inside.
Man with a gun
An intoxicated man was looking in the windows of parked cars in the driveway of a Shemara Street residence around 11 p.m. on Aug. 4. When confronted by a man who lives in the house, the suspect allegedly challenged him to fight then threatened to get a shotgun and shoot him in the head. The intoxicated man left, but the residents of the house saw him coming towards them from the end of the street a few minutes later, making a pumping action with a gun. They called 911 and deputies responded. Deputies illuminated the man with patrol car spotlights and saw what looked like a pistol handle in the waistband of the suspect’s trousers. With handguns drawn, they ordered the man to the ground and he complied. The suspect had dropped what turned out to be a pellet gun, and attempted to walk away. He

was arrested/booked for criminal threats, prowling, challenging to fight and drunk in public. “It should be noted that, while the suspect was publicly intoxicated, he had had enough sense to drop the gun and try to walk away upon seeing police arrive,” a deputy reported. None of the victims, nor any of the investigating deputies, could explain the suspect’s aggressive and dangerous actions for the night. “It does appear that he would have shot (the man at the house) with a pellet(s) if he could have,” the deputy added. “I base this opinion on the suspect’s statements along with the fact that there was a pellet in the chamber of the gun, and that the pumping action
(the 911 caller) saw and thought was the racking of a shotgun, was actually the suspect pumping the air chamber intake on the pellet gun, preparing the weapon to shoot pellets.”
A 15-year-old boy was walking on Via Real in front of a convenience store at about 1:45 p.m. on Aug. 5, when a Volkswagon Jetta, driven by a female, drove by slowly and two men called out, “Where you from?” The boy responded, “Nowhere,” and the Jetta then pulled into the driveway and two subjects allegedly jumped out and began punching and
kicking him. The victim said suspects yelled “Eastside” when they began their assault. The victim said he covered up his head with his arms, and the suspects jumped back into their car after assaulting him, then entered Hwy 101 Northbound. Witnesses say the driver was a Hispanic female with long black hair, and the male assailants, also Hispanic, were 20 to 25 years of age with shaved heads and clean shaven faces. They were wearing blue jeans, white T-shirts and white tennis shoes. One assailant wore a button down, checkered shirt with vertical blue stripes.

A reader sends a pitchfork to the new “neighbor” on Sandyland Road who has not even moved in yet but decided to come over onto the adjoining property and rip out plants in the succulent garden because she didn’t like how it looked. “That was extremely rude and disrespectful and no way to make yourself welcome.” A reader sends a pitchfork to the neighbor who enjoys late night lively conversations in the backyard with friends and disturbs the reader’s sleep. “Last Friday night you bypassed the usual 1:30 a.m. and kept it up until 4.30 a.m. Please be considerate of your neighbors.” A reader sends a pitchfork to two owners in a certain apartment complex for renting out their units on Airbnb. “There are new people almost every night. One idiot broke our gate to the pool, and now no one can gain access to the pool. This is what happens when you let nightly and weekly people rent.”

Little Free Library is a worldwide movement where neighbors give and take books from each other. No due dates, bills or anything else is required—just a love of neighbors and books. According to the website, LittleFreeLibrary.org, there are nearly 40,000 Little Free Library book exchanges, and this is just since 2010, when the idea started catching on. Two little libraries have popped up in Carpinteria in the last couple months. Maybe you’ve driven by the artsy little library home on Canalino Drive where the roof is made out of license plates. Maybe you’ve played at Eucalyptus Park and noticed the fairy cottage book nook across from it on Chaparral Drive and wondered if these are yard decorations or invitations to come browse. These book hosts want visitors, and they want books in the hands of as many who’d like to partake. Simply stop at the curb, open the bookcase’s door and browse until you’re content. If you’re on a walk, maybe the lure of a book will get you to walk a bit farther. “A house without books is like a room without windows,” said Horace Mann and many agree. However, many don’t read much. The Literacy Project Foundation’s website states that 50 percent of adults cannot read a book written at an eighth-grade level, 45 million Americans are functionally illiterate and read below a ﬁfth-grade level, 44 percent of adults in the U.S. do not read a book in a year, and six out of 10 households do not buy a single book in a year.

Cold-feet grooms, making amends and a mentoring mess Cvn
life, love & manners donnie nair Dear readers, Please send your questions about life, love or manners to Donnie@coastalview.com. This column is printed on the third Thursday, and the deadline for questions is the Friday before. Thank you for your interest. Sincerely, Donnie
Dear Donnie, My fiancé and I have been together four years. We’ve been planning our wedding for six months, and everything is set. My problem is that my future husband is now refusing to go through with the wedding. He says he wants to marry me but doesn’t want a big spectacle. It’s only 100 guests. I’ve looked forward to this my whole life, and our date is only six weeks away. I love him but want the wedding we’ve planned and paid for. Sincerely, Stuck at the Altar
Dear Donnie, I am in my late 80s and my daughter still resents significant events of her childhood, which I had no control over. I did the best I could but that is not how a child sees things. I want to die in peace and resolution with my daughter. She is willing, but I don’t know how to tackle this topic. NEW ADDITIONS FOR NOODLE LOVERS Sincerely, CHICKEN UDON NOODLE SOUP Nearing the End
Dear Stuck at the Altar, I hardly know where to start. He has had six months to express his reluctance for what has been planned. I’d love to know more. Is he an introvert and awkward in social situations? Are you an extrovert and can handle being the center of attention? How have you handled these differences over the first four years? Surely he knows that waiting until the last minute to tell you is cowardly and outrageously inconsiderate. Many men get cold feet at the last minute but are decent enough to man up and do their duty. Can you talk to his best friend, his pastor or even a therapist? Maybe he just needs reassurance that you really love him and think he will look great and do great on this important day. If that doesn’t work, I think you have serious problems as a couple.
there were significant events that you had no control over. All mothers do the best they can, but sometimes that is not good enough. Since your daughter is willing to work on this don’t waste a minute getting help.
so he can develop a work ethic. I was reluctant at first because I couldn’t see how this young man would fit in with my business, but I value my relationship with this investor so I agreed. The son showed up the first day late and sloppily dressed.
I gave him a thorough briefing before he started, but he is slow to catch on and never finishes his assigned job. I’m going crazy. What shall I do? Sincerely, Over a Barrel Dear Over a Barrel, You took this on to please or impress your investor. He trusted you to straighten out this kid. So use your best management skills to turn this kid around. Catch him doing something right and praise him. Be sure all instructions are clear and easy to follow. If your business deals with the public, show him how to act and how to dress. When he starts catching on, praise him in front of his co-workers. You may want to assign someone to be his mentor. It sounds like a tough job but it will be worth it in the end. Hope your business thrives.
list so each party can see who is coming. I would ask your friend how she wants her friends to handle the divorce. If there is a new person in the mix then you may have to pick your guests from either the friend and the new person or the one left behind. This has now become a common social dilemma and each situation is different. Don’t take sides and don’t pass on any confidences. It can backfire. They may work it out and get back together. Marriages are not always as happy as they appear, but some people make it work. Donnie Nair, a native Californian and well known local activist has lived in Carpinteria twice—1967 to 1970 and 1990 to now. She spent 18 years in Boulder, Colo. where she saw her first snowflake. In Boulder she became an award winning real estate broker and national speaker. Locally she leads the Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Group and the annual Carpinteria Beautiful Home and Garden tour.

Warrior football warms up for a new season in a new league.
BY ALONZO OROZCO
Next week: CHS preps for fall
Warrior Football Preview 2016
The Carpinteria High School football team shifts from the Tri-Valley League (TVL) to the Frontier League this season, joining familiar TVL foe Fillmore, along with Malibu and Santa Clara. “Malibu will be a team that we’ve never played before. It’s a new league for us; we’ve never been in the Frontier League before,” said Warrior Coach Ben Hallock. Since last year saw the graduation of 20 seniors from the squad, this season will hold a number of new faces on the ﬁeld along with the new league. Although Carpinteria will miss some of its senior leadership from last year, the cupboards were not necessarily left bare for Hallock. A dozen juniors who are now seniors will be back on the ﬁeld. “We’re coming along really ﬁne. There are certainly a lot of spots to ﬁll, but guys are stepping up; we’ve had some great practices,” said the longtime coach. Like last year, Michael Garibay, now a senior, will start at quarterback with sophomore Vance Keiser as his backup. Senior Jacob Garside ﬁgures to be one of the playmakers out of the backﬁeld, along with fellow senior running back Alex Martinez and sophomore running back Isaac De Alba. Junior Terrell Richardson, who saw some action at wide receiver last year, should also be a standout performer, accompanied by Vincent Gonzalez who played for the JV team last year with De Alba. As always, the defense will also have a good number of players contributing from the offensive side of the ball. Senior Brandon Muralles will be back and counted on to be one of the leaders at the middle linebacker position. Jacob Garcia and Alex Martinez will be important in the overall scheme. On the defensive line, Seniors Eduardo Lozano and Alfredo Zamarripa will be the anchors. Rudy Montoya, yet another JV player from last year, also ﬁgures to make an impact. As far as special teams are concerned,

Senior Michael Garibay will step back into familiar shoes as this fall’s QB for the Warriors. Above, Garibay looks for an opening in a 2015 scrimmage against Glendale. Brian Garcia, a soccer player at the school who’s never played football, is looking to take over the kicking duties. Gonzalez and Lozano will also get a chance to display their skills. Even though the Warriors made the playoffs last year, they did it the hard way, losing their ﬁrst ﬁve games. Hallock hopes to get off to a better start. “The playoffs are based on how you play in the preseason. We need to go out and play well from the very beginning,” he explained of the new postseason format, which is based on a team’s overall record, not just its record in league. The new for-
CHS to host Fall Sports Parent Meeting
Parents of Carpinteria High School students playing fall sports should mark their calendars for an important meeting on Thursday, Aug. 25 at 6 p.m. in the school cafeteria, 4810 Foothill Road. The school requests that every athlete be represented by a parent or guardian. Fall sports are boys water polo, girls volleyball, cross country, girls tennis, girls golf and football. The meeting will feature a slideshow from Coastal View News photographer Bill Swing, a brief departmentwide meeting, a CHS Boosters Club presentation, and sport speciﬁc breakout sessions with the coaches of each sport and team. For more information, contact CHS Athletics Director Pat Cooney at 684-4107 x227 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
mula will place only 16 of the 46 teams in Carpinteria’s Division 12 in the playoffs. The Warriors open on the road on Sept. 2 against North County rival the Santa Ynez Pirates, who ran away with a 42-0 victory at Valley Memorial Stadium last season. Carpinteria’s first home game will be against Nordhoff on Sept.
16, and the rivalry game against Bishop Diego will also take place at home on Sept. 30. “We’re looking forward to competing. Our guys have done a good job of conditioning, and I think that’s really important,” concluded Hallock. For the Warriors, it’s a new frontier.

It takes a community to rescue an owl
the summerland shore f r a n d av i s it all started in the morning with a bunch of crows going crazy in Lookout park. investigating the disturbance, melinda, a park regular, spotted the great horned owl. it was caught in a line and hanging by the tip of one wing in a eucalyptus at the park’s upper end. Word of the owl’s plight spread quickly. Rescue was imperative, but no one knew how to go about it. the owl was very high in the tree, one open wing caught at the very tip, the other wing spread, catching the breeze. She was like a great gray ghostly kite swaying slightly in the wind. (We learned later the owl was a female.) the fire department arrived, but couldn’t do anything. their ladder wasn’t right, not long enough. And then if a fireman got up there, what could he do? You don’t just grab a big, wild taloned creature like an owl. they wisely left the matter to the Wildlife Care Network guy, who’d arrived after a call from Summerlander Reeve Woolpert. by this time the owl had been hanging in the tree most of the day and probably some part of the night as well. it was clear to ed meyers of the Wildlife Care Network that a tree climber was needed for the rescue. Reeve Woolpert called Chris Newton of branch out tree service. Chris was unavailable, in buellton, but he called Carpinterian Nick Wigle who owns Super bee. Nick does a lot of climbing in his work. he was busy with an emergency bee removal from a utility box in Goleta, but he was definitely up for an owl rescue. the several parties whose utilities were compromised by the bee-infested box all agreed that Nick should break off and go help that owl. i was one of a small group gathered under the tree to watch Nick begin the rescue effort. Fortunately, he’s licensed and insured to do county work, a necessity for doing anything in a county park. ed, the Wildlife Care guy, instructed him on the danger posed by beaks and talons. Nick donned full armor—bee suit, big goatskin gauntlets, a bee mask and safety harness. his 32-foot ladder could just reach a branch near the owl. but it was close, and i held my breath as he climbed. ed had provided a cloth bag that Nick was supposed to get the owl into.
but it was too small. And the owl was too far away. Nick had to do everything one-handed, hang on to a branch with one hand and reach out with the other. Nick was eye to eye with that great horned owl trying to figure out how to proceed. “She looked so strong,” he said later. but the whole enterprise seemed so precarious it was making me sweat. i was really glad Nick had that safety harness. he gave up on the bag and reached out to cut the line she was hanging from. it was enough. Suddenly free, she spread both wings and made a smooth glide from the tree down to a fence. ed said when he saw that glide he knew she’d be okay. We watched him approach her—and she had her big dollar-sized yellow eyes on him, too—as he managed to wrap her in a canvas tarp. She was transferred to a cardboard box and then whisked off to the Wildlife Care Center on Fairview Ave. i called the Center later to check her progress. they determined that she had a very sore “arm,” but nothing was broken. After a few days, she was sent to the ojai Raptor Center for more rest and rehabilitation. So maybe she’ll be flying free again soon. i kind of hope she returns to her roost in the big tree in Lookout park—but after somebody gets that string trap out of the tree. ed said Summerland’s great horned owl quickly became “a poster child for expediting bird rescues.” they’ve had some experience with the cormorant population that roosts in the trees next to the freeway by Summerland. Cormorants, he said, get fishhooks stuck in their beaks and then get tangled in tree limbs, so they end up hanging by their beaks. A heartbreaking sight, and rescue is hard because of the height. on the advice of premier tree climber Nick Wigle, the Wildlife Care Center is now purchasing a 32-foot ladder and an avocado picker. ed thinks it will also serve for picking a bird out of a tree. One good thing: the hoot of an owl at night. Fran Davis is an award-winning writer and freelance editor whose work appears in magazines, print and online journals, anthologies and travel books. She has lived in Summerland most of her life.

Built on the corner of Carpinteria and Maple avenues in 1890, J.B. andrews’ grand home eventually moved to the corner of oak avenue and 8th street where it continues its stately existence. andrews himself didn’t live long into the 20th century, but his widow, Elise, stayed in the home. around the year 1920, she married Dr. Jerome tubbs, who held the position of preacher at the presbyterian Church. Later tubbs became a justice of the peace, and he kept an office in the tank house (pictured above to the right of the main house). the tank house was topped with a windmill and came to be known as the Windmill Courthouse. its quirky fame spread, eventually attracting enough attention to be included in a ripley’s Believe it or not cartoon. the house was purchased by frank Hebel in 1938. He relocated the structure to its current lot, but a fire broke out, damaging the roof and upper story and leaving the home in a sad state of disrepair for years. assumed by many to be a tear-down, the home was finally sold and painstakingly restored. It has lived on as a head turner for the last 50-plus years.

A certiﬁcate from Grand Lodge and a 70-yearpin was presented by Robert Beeson, Inspector of the 509th Masonic District, who noted how active Charles LoBue has been during his years in Masonry. LoBue’s close friends David and Valerie Powdrell attended the celebration, and Valerie assisted in the presentation.

He also gives his time to Catholic Charities and is a member and supporter of The Montecito Trail Association, among other organizations. In his ﬁnal remarks, he encouraged the local lodge to support the Carpinteria Arts Center.
4-H comes baaaack from fair with ribbons
The Playa Del Sur 4-H Club brought their ﬁne lambs and steers to the Santa Barbara County Fair during the week of July 11 to 17 and stacked up well against the competition. The Steer Team’s Jesus Ramirez was the Novice Showmanship Champion. Members Jenny Alaniz and Max Brown also walked away with second and third places. For Market Steers, the team took two third places, two fourth places, and a ﬁfth and seventh place. The lamb team was also successful in taking many ribbons home, led by Xochitl Moreno, second, and Eloisa Arroyo, third in Novice Showmanship. All of the animals were sold through the auction and bought by the Wood-Claeyssens Foundation, which donates all the meat to the Santa Barbara County Food Bank. According to a press release, Playa Del Sur 4-H club is sad to end the year but glad they were able to contribute to those in need through their livestock projects.

Local girls take in the sights and sounds of Washington D.C. during a recent trip with Girls Inc. Girls Inc. goes to Washington Ten local girls recently returned from an inspiring trip to the nation’s capital as part of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria’s Eureka! program, a ﬁve-year, college-bound program that aims to break gender stereotypes and encourages girls to step outside their comfort zones, and discover different career paths and ﬁelds. The teens met and lobbied with local representatives on issues important to them, an experience that gave the young women opportunity to take ownership of their voices and opinions. “I felt inspired because I’ve never felt so strongly about an issue and have had the conﬁdence to say it,” shared 16-yearold Ana, one of the participants. “I also learned to open myself up to new adventures and get exposed to new places because that makes you a more informed person.” For many of the participants, this trip was their ﬁrst time ﬂying on an airplane, leaving the state and staying in a hotel. During the ﬁve days, the teens, along with Girls Inc. staff, also explored museums including the Smithsonian and the Holocaust Museum, toured the campus at George Washington University, and visited local sites and monuments.

Orozco and Javanbakht collaborate on stage comedy
Turning the borderline tragic into the full-blown funny is the stuff of true talent—true talent like writers Ali Javanbakht and Amy Marie orozco. Javanbakht, a medical doctor, and orozco, a magazine editor and writer, teamed up years ago to write “Shady Ends,” a comic play set in a nursing home that will debut at Plaza Playhouse Theater this weekend. Javanbakht practiced family medicine in the Carpinteria Sansum Clinic for years before accepting the position of Medical director at U.C. Santa Barbara Student Health Services in 2014. orozco, former editor of Coastal View News, is current editor of Carpinteria Magazine and works on writing projects for several clients. The pair wrote “Shady Ends” via Google docs. It is their first joint production. CVN caught up with the two busy professionals to find out more about what audiences have in store for them this weekend. CVN: Tell us what motivated you two to collaborate on a play? Ali: My aunt-in-law, after her experiences with a loved one in a nursing home, once commented that it is a ripe venue for a sitcom. At that time I was writing the “For the Health of it!” column, and she suggested I write a pilot. That simmered in my mind for a few years. one day, Amy and I were discussing Amy’s experiences with, and observations of, nursing homes. I told her about my aunt-in-law’s suggestion and we decided to write a play about it. Amy: At that time, my mom’s death was very recent. Ali was very kind about listening to me and my journey through the healthcare maze. In retrospect, and in no way did I realize it at the time, writing the play was cathartic. Extremely so. Ali and I had gotten to know each other through Coastal View. I was editor at the time he pitched his “For the Health of It!” column, which I thought was genius. Well, I thought it was funny and well written. I’m really not a judge of genius. CVN: Please give us the Cliff’s Notes version of the Cliff’s Notes version of “Shady Ends.” Ali: It’s about a writer who winds up in a nursing home with a broken pelvis. He has grandiose dreams and is determined to not let anything get in his way. But he finds himself in a circus of eccentric staff and patients, all of whom, in some way, appear determined to derail his plans. After a terrifying complication, he sees that environment for what it really is: the best of humanity, working against all odds for the betterment of the most vulnerable members of society. That clarity of vision propels him down a new path
I’m from a family of language lovers. We love puns, etymology, and all forms of word play. Scrabble and Boggle games are part of my formative years. (Wasn’t that Boggle game noisy?!) Letter writing, as in snail mail, is still alive and well in my family. CVN: Has your writing ever come to the stage? How do you feel as you anticipate the curtain rising on your play?
Playwrights Amy Orozco and Ali Javanbakht—who happened to be on vacation during the photo shoot—gab about the debut of their play. that lacks the glamour of his previous journey, but is his true calling.
“Shady Ends” opens on Friday, Aug. 19 at 8 p.m., and will be performed again on Saturday, Aug. 20 at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 3 p.m. Plaza Playhouse Theater is located at 4916 Carpinteria Ave. Tickets are $15 general admission and $12 for seniors or students. Tickets are available online at plazatheatercarpinteria.com, at the theater box office prior to the show, and Seastrand (919 Linden Ave., Carpinteria, cash or check only).
Amy: I couldn’t have said it better myself. I’ve been asked if Holmes Sloan, the writer main character, is based on someone we know. I think of him as more of an archetype. other real life people figured into my developing the characters. When it all comes out in the wash, I have to say, for all my bravado and cynicism, I’m a cockeyed optimist. (Some people would say “obnoxiously so.”) “Shady Ends” has a bit of that in it.
CVN: Ali, your retired CVN column “For the Health of it!” was full of dry humor. And, Amy, your quick wit is well known around these parts. What can audiences expect in terms of humor in the play? Ali: I think the play very much includes the humor I used in the column. But it’s a different expression of that humor, since it’s in dialog and visual form. I always enjoyed humor as a form of storytelling and using it to highlight human realities. I’m excited for audiences to see it. Amy: The play makes good use of timehonored comedic traditions. dialogue is fast-paced, plays on words, there’s a bit of farce, and some physical humor. Not slapstick, per se, but certainly not Noel Coward living room drama (but, boy, wouldn’t I love to parody that!). I love repartee to the point of not advancing the plot; Ali did a good job of moving the play forward.
CVN: Ali, the writer/ doctor combo seems a bit unusual. Tell us what got you interested in those two areas.
Ali: I had always enjoyed writing ever since grade school. I had a strong interest in theater growing up, which translated itself into writing sketches. I went with humor because it was my most comfortable form of expression. I also had a great love of stories. They are tremendously powerful at getting to the core of humanity and, in doing so, can highlight very effectively our common values that transcend our superficial differences. CVN: Amy, tell us about how your path led to writing. Did you tap into other areas of interest to write “Shady Ends”? Amy: Not sure about my path to writing ... But it’s something I always have done. For profit and pleasure, though not always at the same time. To tell the truth, I think I’m a pretty lazy writer, so working with Ali gave me the accountability to see the project to its completion.
Ali: The closest I ever got to having my writing staged was during the “Christmas Package” at dos Pueblos High School. It was a yearly student written, produced and directed event that was basically a collection of Christmas themed sketches. I always wrote plenty of material for it. Not all of it made it to the stage, but a few did. “Shady Ends” is on a much larger scale and in a much larger venue. Amy has used the term “surreal,” which accurately describes what it’s been like seeing this play come to the stage. Amy: Boy, would I have had fun with the “Christmas Package”! Has my writing ever come to a stage with a proscenium arch and seating for 200? No, not that I recall. I did have interest in a television script I once submitted in the early 1990s, and I managed to not respond and let that go by the wayside. As kids, we wrote and staged things in garages and backyards, but I’m thinking that’s not the intent of your question. CVN: Who’s your favorite character in the play, and why? Ali: yvonne, the nurse, is my favorite character. She has tremendous life experience and, as a result, a clear understanding of how important her work is despite all the daily frustrations. She is a no nonsense person who will not hesitate to expound her wisdom in ways that make the advisee very uncomfortable, but she gets her point across—all the while thoroughly enjoying herself. Amy: yeah, yvonne is highly likable, maybe not in real life, but in “Shady Ends” she’s something else. It’s hard to choose a favorite character. I don’t have a favorite book or movie either. I never want to hurt anyone’s feelings.

DROUGHT STILL ON - CONSERVE WATER CVN goes into thin air
David Kephart earns high marks for getting CVN high atop Washington’s Mount Rainier last month. Rainier, the highest peak in the Cascade Range, tops out at an elevation of 14,411 feet. Kephart and his team started the ﬁnal summit push on July 20 at 12:45 a.m. and arrived at the crater rim just after 7 a.m. Strong winds, snow and constant below freezing temperatures made for a climb Kephart—and CVN—will never forget.
