Santa Barbara Humane received four Husky puppies at the Santa Maria campus who need immediate foster. “The puppies are recovering from Parvo, a potentially deadly virus, that is being treated successfully,” said Dori Villalon, chief operating officer. “In order to support their healing, it is important to get them out of the shelter environment within 24-48 hours and into a home.” The puppies, named Alfredo, Aioli, Ponzu and Pesto, were transferred to Santa Barbara Humane from a local shelter partner so that they could receive proper medical treatment. The puppies are four months old, and there are three females and one male in the litter. Medical care will be provided for these puppies, including their spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccines and microchipping. Interested fosters and adopters can contact the shelter at (805) 964-4777 x2 or email foster@sbhumane.org.

Avofest unveils 2021 festival poster

Last Thursday, the California Avocado Festival unveiled this year’s poster and T-shirt design, announcing Carpinteria local Lori Shaw as the winning designer. Shaw’s design was selected from proposals from 30 local artists. Her design stood out for the way it captured this year’s theme, “Back to the Roots.” “(Shaw) emphasized that inside every avocado pit lays the potential for a whole new tree, which is represented in the center of the poster. She also paid tribute to the spotted rock art that has become popular in Carpinteria since the pandemic. The Channel Islands appear in the background as a beautiful reminder of the splendid views we have in Carpinteria,” a press release from the festival read. Shaw, a Carpinteria High School graduate and textile designer, has designed products for Big Dog Sportswear, Warner Brothers and Disney. Her Avofest T-shirts and posters will be available for purchase between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Farmer’s Market on Linden Avenue, on Sept. 23 and Sept. 30. Last week, the festival announced it was postponing the scheduled Oct. 2, 2021 festival to 2022, citing Covid-19 restrictions.

As of Sept. 16, 529,358 total doses of Covid-19 have been administered within the county and 56.6% of the county was fully vaccinated; on Tuesday, that number hit 57%. 787 new cases were seen between the week of Sept. 10 and Sept. 16.

57% of county now vaccinated

As of Tuesday, 57% of Santa Barbara County residents are now fully vaccinated. Roughly 67.4% of those eligible to be vaccinated and over the age of 12 are fully vaccinated. As of Sept. 16, the county has administrated 529,558 total doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, which encompasses 267,376 first doses, 234,547 second doses and 22,356 single doses. Between the week of Sept. 10 and Sept. 16, the county saw 787 new cases, three new deaths and 49 hospitalizations. Since the pandemic started, the county has recorded 41,067 cases and 491 total deaths. Within the county, those who are unvaccinated are reporting Covid-19 vaccinations at an 80% higher rate than those who are vaccinated, the county said in its weekly update.

All individuals within the county, vaccinated or unvaccinated, are still required to wear a mask while in indoor public settings, per a health order released in early August. On Monday, the south county unincorporated area – which includes Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria – reported three new cases, for a total of 1,616 total cases. The majority of cases that emerged on Monday are seen in those between the ages of 30 and 49.

City disagrees with county on Bailard housing project City staff tables talks with county housing authority over lack of city control

BY EVELYN SPENCE The city of Carpinteria has tabled talks with the county over the Bailard Avenue housing project because of disagreements over city control, City Manager Dave Durflinger confirmed at a special school board and city council meeting held on Friday. The property is located at 1001-1003 Bailard Ave. and is owned by the Carpinteria Unified School District, which seeks to sell the land to the county of Santa Barbara. The property’s location, just outside city limits, renders the city council’s powers ineffective over what is built on the land. In April of this year, the city council passed a memorandum of understanding, or MOU, in an attempt to have some control over the proposed development for the property: a 173-unit apartment complex that the council claimed goes against the city’s long-term plans. The property would have to be rezoned for the complex to be built. But on Friday, Durflinger said that while the city has held meetings with the county housing authority and the private developer seeking to build the Bailard residential complex, talks have since been

tabled over disagreements regarding city control. “The snag that we hit is that the development scenario, the concept that has been submitted to the county – we could not support as staff. We felt that it could not be found to be consistent with city policies,” Durflinger said. “They have made some attempts to tweak the project (…) but we could not come to terms with an agreed-upon measure that would ask that the project go through, even on an informal basis, the city’s review and planning commission to receive recommendations for city policies,” he explained. Carpinteria Unified School District Superintendent Diana Rigby confirmed that the purchase agreement for the property is set for Nov. 2023. Carpinteria Valley Association President Mike Wondolowski, who spoke during public comment, said he encourages the city to “stand up for what is best for Carpinteria,” noting that it is “not reasonable for any buyer of that property to expect it to be rezoned.” Public speaker Catherine Overman also called the project “overwhelmingly unpopular.” Beyond the discussion of the proposed

“The snag that we hit is that the development scenario, the concept that has been submitted to the county – we could not support as staff. We felt that it could not be found to be consistent with city policies.”

––City Manager Dave Durflinger

Bailard housing, the meeting focused on improving civic youth engagement in city government and with the school board. Additionally, the boards heard updates on the library transition and pedestrian safety. Both city and school board members expressed interest in a planned civic youth engagement program, which seeks to improve youth engagement in both the local city government and school board, through a civics program and services provided by Community Resource Deputy James Carovano. Councilmember Roy Lee emphasized that the council needs to make more of an active effort to get local students to participate in city government, and School-

board member Andy Sheaffer agreed. “Even talking to my kid’s friends, there’s a real misunderstanding about what we do as school board members, and I’m sure there’s a misunderstanding for the city council as well,” Sheaffer said. Possible engagement discussed could include having students attend city council and school board meetings, teaching them about public comment and how to speak during meetings, and possibly offering an internship program through the city. Wondolowski also expressed excitement for a civic youth engagement project, offering assistance from the Carpinteria Valley Association “in any way we can.”

101 Construction Update: Sept. 19 – Oct. 2

Travelers through the Carpinteria and Summerland areas should be aware of several lane closures throughout the next two weeks, on both Highway 101 northbound and Hwy 101 southbound. On the Hwy 101 northbound side, one lane between Bailard Avenue and North Padardo Lane will be closed between 9 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday nights. The same stretch will be closed between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Monday through Thursday nights. The on-ramp at Bailard Avenue will also be closed between Sept. 27 and Sept. 30, between 8 p.m. and 5 p.m.; the Santa Monica Road on- and off-ramps will be closed for up to eight weeks beginning Sept. 26. Ramps at South Padaro Lane and Santa Claus Lane can be used as detours. On the southbound side, one lane between Padaro Lane and Bailard Avenue will be closed on Sunday nights between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. The same stretch will be closed between 8 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. on Monday through Thursday nights. The on- and off-ramps at Bailard Avenue will be closed on Sept. 26 between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. The Bailard Avenue on- and off-ramps and the off-ramp at Carpinteria Avenue will be closed between Sept. 26 and 30, from 8 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. The on-ramp at Wallace Avenue is scheduled to re-open on Nov. 1; a detour is available at Evans Avenue, Lillie Avenue, and at North Padardo Lane. The Sheffield Drive on-ramp is still on schedule to re-open in 2023, while the off-ramp at Sheffield Drive will be open by the end of 2021. At the Evans Avenue undercrossing, the Evans Avenue southbound off-ramp will be closed between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. on Sept. 30. Between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. on that same day, workers will be directing traffic under Highway 101 on Evans Avenue, as crews work to remove the old overhang. On the highway stretch crossing through Summerland, construction crews are continuing to install and pave an asphalt sublayer, for the new Hwy 101 southbound lanes. New drainage is also being installed, and construction crews are still pouring concrete for retaining wall supports.

On the stretch through Carpinteria on the northbound side, construction crews over the next two weeks are installing rebar, ahead of placing reinforced pavement. At the Santa Monica and Via Real intersection, crews are still relocating overhead utilities, and are working on intersection improvements such as bike lakes and crosswalks. On the southbound side, crews will begin focusing on landscaping between Santa Monica creek and the Carpinteria Avenue southbound off-ramp. Crews will also repaint areas that have been graffitied at Casitas Pass Road. Sound walls – near Franciscan Court and north of Cravens Lane, and between Santa Ynez Avenue and Franklin Creek and Santa Ynez Avenue and Santa Monica Creek, and north of Santa Monica Creek – are being prepped. Crews are installed rebar and concrete blocks in the area. Learn more at SBROADS.com.

In Summerland, construction crews are pouring concrete for supports for the retaining walls, near Ortega Hill.

In Carpinteria, crews are installing rebar ahead of placing reinforced pavement for new lanes. Sound wall footings at several places along the highway are being constructed.

School board honors Cecilia Carter after 16 years with the district

IE TUGG e is th

BIG

21!

BY EVELYN SPENCE Carpinteria Unified School District’s Board of Trustees, along with high school principal Gerado Cornejo, honored Cecilia Carter, a secondary special education teacher, for her 16 years of service at the board’s regular meeting on Tuesday. Her last day working for the district was Aug. 30. “I want to take this opportunity to congratulate her on her retirement and acknowledge her dedication to the students at Carpinteria High School (CHS) for the past 16 years,” Cornejo said. He said that she taught English and study skills and was always an advocate for a comprehensive reading program at CHS; she implemented the reading plus initiative, and worked with the English department to get the program to all students. “(She) worked long hours with her colleagues to ensure that every student received the proper support they needed to be successful in the classroom,” he said. “Her love of literature and her ability to adapt her lessons to ensure students were engaged in challenge was evident every time I walked into her classroom.” “Ms. Carter always had a smile on her face (…) She worked with each and every student to develop the skills they would need in their daily lives after high school,” he added.

Budget update

Assistant Superintendent Maureen Fitzgerald presented the 2020-2021 unaudited budget report at Tuesday night’s meeting, confirming that her staff had finished closing the books in record time. “We finished closing the books the second week of August, which is a record. And then we sat there and went, ‘Are you sure we’re done?’” she joked. “It was another Covid year. It had a lot of twists and turns.” She confirmed that the property taxes went down, and that enrollment went down, while federal revenue, state revenues and local revenues went up. She attributed these to prior year assessment reimbursements and workers’ compensation payments and donations, among others. Final salaries were $8,000 higher than estimated, and in total, expenses were up $120,000, she said. For the general fund, total revenues came out to roughly $37 million; and expenditures came out to some $34 million. In total, the school received $8.1 million in Covid-19 and learning loss assistance. Currently, Fitzgerald said there is $2.5 to $3 million left, that will be spent over the next few years.

she knew she had found a new home. During this time, she also discovered her true passion, early childhood education and development. She graduated from a progressive teaching program at Pacific Oaks College. She excelled in her studies and was a source of expertise and support for those around her. Sylvia arrived in Carpinteria in the late 70s with her future husband and great friend; they rented the brown house on the corner of Walnut Ave. and 8th Street, dubbing it the “5195 Club”. Carpinteria became their adopted home, and they followed their dreams by purchasing a plot of land in Gobernador Canyon. Dragging two trailers into the avocado trees and building outdoor kitchens and bathrooms, they embraced the back to the land movement. Our mother had a huge heart and was often the first person at your door ready to help with food in times of struggle or despair. She adored her students and would do anything for them. Her intelligence and her creativity combined made her a wonderful teacher. Mom, we hope you’re in a peaceful place and can rest easy. Know that we appreciate all that you’ve done for us. We love and miss you.

Carpinteria Health Care Center’s primary care physician Dr. Tomas Wy says that ideally everyone should get their flu vaccine by the end of October.

Flu season has arrived BY DR. TOMAS WY, PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN CARPINTERIA HEALTH CARE CENTER

While flu vaccine effectiveness can vary from season to season, annual flu vaccines provide important protection against flu. The composition of this year ’s flu vaccine has been updated. All flu vaccines administered this year will now be quadrivalent, designed to protect against four different flu viruses. There are many different flu viruses, and they are constantly changing. The composition of the U.S. flu vaccines is reviewed annually and updated as needed to match circulating flu viruses. September and October are generally good times to be vaccinated. Ideally, everyone should be vaccinated by the end of October. Adults, especially those older than 65, should not get vaccinated early because protection in this group may decrease over time. Children can get vaccinated as soon as the vaccine becomes available. It takes two weeks after vaccination for your body to build immunity for protection against the flu. Some of the symptoms of the flu and Covid-19 and other respiratory illnesses are similar, so testing will be necessary to rule out Covid-19. People can be infected with both the flu and the virus that causes Covid-19 at the same time and have symptoms of both influenza and Covid-19. For testing

Partial ceasefire in Carpinteria’s cannabis wars Former foes sign a pact to get rid of the smell of pot

BY MELINDA BURNS In recent years, as most of the Carpinteria Valley’s cut-flower greenhouses converted to pot, mostly without zoning permits, two citizens’ groups – Concerned Carpinterians and the Santa Barbara Coalition for Responsible Cannabis – have pressed the county Board of Supervisors to rein in the cannabis industry, without much success. Now, in a bow to political realities, the coalition, a nonprofit group with 200 members countywide, has changed tack. On Aug. 20, the group signed an odor-control agreement with its former adversary, the Cannabis Association for Responsible Producers, or CARP Growers, representing the owners of 21 greenhouse properties. “As a result of our extended negotiations, I’ve come to believe that the growers really want to do the right thing,” said Rob Salomon, a coalition board member. “They don’t want to be associated with an industry that has stunk up the Carpinteria Valley and made them a pariah in the community. “The contract puts in place a path to technology and protocols well beyond what the county ordinance requires.” At the heart of the pact is a “model odor abatement plan” that requires the members of CARP Growers to install “best available odor control technologies” – widely believed to be carbon filtration systems called “scrubbers” – to get rid of the smell of pot inside their greenhouses before it can escape through the vents in the roofs. Both parties say they are hopeful that with the scrubbers in place, the valley’s smelliest hot spots can be cleared up by the end of 2022. The growers with the most odor complaints, they say, will get top priority for new scrubbers. The first big shipment, 150 of the latest models, costing $20,000 each, is expected to arrive here in mid-November from The Netherlands. “I’m very excited to see this deal happen,” said Autumn Shelton, the CARP Growers president and a co-owner of the Autumn Brands Farm, a nine-acre “grow” at 3615 Foothill Road. “It was definitely very close to falling apart. The coalition wanted more than what a lot of the growers can promise. We want to hold to our words. Whatever we promise, we’re going to deliver. “It’s a monumental feat to be able to have accomplished this and come to terms with each other.”

The terms

During the past 12 months alone, Carpinteria Valley residents have filed 913 odor complaints with the county. It’s not only the smell of pot, but also the “laundromat” smell of the odor-neutralizing greenhouse “misting” systems that they object to. Hot spots for the noxious odors have been Padaro and Cravens lanes, La Mirada Drive and Meadow Circle, the Polo Condos, and the homes nearest the greenhouses on Foothill Road, the stretch between Nidever and Casitas Pass roads that some call “Cannabis Alley.” “I’ve probably sent 60 complaints to the county in the last 90 days,” said Paul Ekstrom, a retired firefighter who lives next to Ever-Bloom, a cannabis greenhouse at 4701 Foothill that is owned by Ed Van Wingerden, a CARP Growers member. CARP Growers holds 299, or 88 percent, of the 338 provisional licenses issued by the state for marijuana cultivation in the valley. Half of the 18 landowners who signed the agreement are Van Wing-

erdens or Brands, two families that rose to prominence in the cut flower industry, decades ago. In addition to installing “best available” technologies for odor control, CARP Growers will be required to implement a sophisticated network of wind stations throughout the valley to help anticipate odor episodes and identify which greenhouses are causing them. In an expansion of the county’s rules, the growers also must follow a lengthy set of protocols for responding and investigating odor complaints – not only from homes but also parks, schools, churches and businesses. The model odor abatement plan will be incorporated into the county zoning permits for each CARP Growers operation and will run with the land. Some of the odor-response protocols will be enforced by the coalition. The county will enforce the growers’ odor abatement plans and will hire a consultant to ensure that odor-control technologies are functioning as promised, Lisa Plowman, the director of Planning & Development, said. To date, 82 acres of greenhouse cannabis in the Carpinteria Valley have been approved for county zoning permits; 222 acres are under review, and 186 acres will be allowed. Under the county’s permissive rules, the operations of many CARP Growers members have been designated as “legal, non-conforming.” Once they get their permits, Plowman said, “There will be investigations when we get complaints.” “The biggest challenge in this process is trying to figure out where the odors are coming from, because of the proximity of the grows,” she said. The parties’ stated goal under the agreement is to reduce odors so that none are detectible beyond the greenhouse property lines. The agreement outlines a series of steps for growers to follow, working with the coalition, to clear up the smell when no single “grow” is the clear source of a complaint. “It’s a new era for farmer-community relations in Carpinteria,” said Graham Farrar, who co-owns G&K Farms at 3561 Foothill and Mission Health Associates at 5601 Casitas Pass. “The coalition has identified that odor is the issue they want solved, and we’re going to figure out how to solve it.”

The compromise

The agreement does mark the end of an era, one in which the coalition pushed for ordinance amendments that would require stiffer permits for cannabis operations countywide. Simultaneously, the coalition appealed to the board to overturn a dozen cannabis zoning permits in the valley. The coalition and Ekstrom also sued Ever-Bloom and four other Van Wingerden greenhouse operations on Foothill, alleging that the owners failed to give residents “relief from the awful smells and noxious odors.” Now, that lawsuit is on hold. The coalition has pledged not to oppose or appeal any more permits, so long as the growers adhere to the terms of the agreement. “This is not an ideal situation, but I don’t see an alternative,” Salomon said. “We appeal, we appeal, we appeal, we appeal; we lose, we lose, we lose, we lose.” The coalition has withdrawn its appeals of two CARP Growers projects – Autumn Brands and Bosim 1628, a sixacre cannabis greenhouse operation at 1628 Cravens Lane. In all, 12 projects that have been approved for permits, including these two and Farrar’s G&K Farms, will be required to upgrade their opera-

“We want to hold to our words. Whatever we promise, we’re going to deliver (...) It’s a monumental feat to be able to have accomplished this and come to terms with each other.”

– Autumn Shelton

tions to meet the terms of the agreement. The agreement does not include a dozen cannabis greenhouse properties whose owners are not members of CARP Growers. Salomon said the coalition reserves the right to contest the zoning permits for those projects, if necessary.

The skeptics

Salomon said the agreement would be posted on the coalition’s website in the coming weeks. But news of the compromise, as outlined in a recent press release, has angered some members of Concerned Carpinterians, a loosely knit grassroots group of about 300 people. Earlier this year, the group parted ways with the coalition over its change in strategy. Paul Foley, a Concerned Carpinterian and an avocado grower, called the agreement “hollow.” His orchard lies next to Cresco California, a CARP Growers business with eight acres of cannabis at 3861 Foothill Road. “It only represents the names of the people who sign it and very few others,” Foley said of the agreement with the coalition. “I’d like to see some de facto regulation of the industry; sheriff’s deputies driving up and down, county cars coming into this driveway. There’s no enforcement.” The Foley family and Sarah Trigueiro, a resident of La Mirada Drive, have appealed to the Board of Supervisors to overturn two cannabis zoning permits that were approved by the county Planning Commission this year. They are the permits, respectively, for Cresco’s operations and Farrar’s proposed cannabis processing warehouse at G&K Farms. Both growers have been required by the county Planning Commission to install carbon scrubbers. If these alone can clear up the smell of pot, Cresco says it will decommission its “misting” system. But the Foleys want guarantees. “I’m finding it very hard to swallow that the CARP Growers are now touting this carbon scrubber system but haven’t been able to produce a reliable odor control program in the past,” Maureen Foley, Paul’s daughter, said. In addition to the smell, the appellants want the board to address the potential impacts of industrial-scale cannabis on Arroyo Paredon, a major creek, and on Foothill Road traffic and the electrical grid. “The appeals process is a way for the public to have a voice,” Maureen Foley said. “It’s one of the few mechanisms where there’s an attempt at least at parity, in terms of balancing the voice of the appellant with the voice of the growers. And the projects have become better projects, as a result.”

The scrubbers

CARP Growers is proud of what it has accomplished. Although carbon filtration has been used for years in sealed buildings where cannabis is grown in other states, such as Colorado, the technologies

being developed for the high-humidity, large-scale, open-vented greenhouses in the Carpinteria Valley are brand-new, and CARP Growers is pioneering them. The group says it has spent more than $50,000, testing multiple prototypes and settling finally on “regenerative” carbon scrubbers, a model developed by Envinity, a Dutch firm. With 150 scrubbers, a $3 million investment, Ever-Bloom will be the site of the first large-scale test of this emerging technology. By early January, growers say, the greenhouse industry will know how well these new scrubbers work. Cresco representatives told the Planning Commission last month that they have been shown to eliminate up to 87% of the smelly gases given off by marijuana plants in a greenhouse setting. Meanwhile, CVW Organic Farms, the first cannabis operation in the valley to commit to using scrubbers, has been using eight locally-designed units in a three-acre cannabis greenhouse on Cravens Lane for the past two months. The scrubbers are run at night, when the vents are nearly closed and the blackout curtains are in place. The “misting,” or vapor, system is turned on during the day, when the vents are open. A year ago, Cooney called this combination the “gold standard” for odor control. The CVW scrubbers and vapor systems were designed and engineered by Marc Byers, a Summerland resident who owns Byers Scientific, an industrial odor-management firm. Byers said there have been no odor complaints at CVW since his scrubbers were installed. “This Johnny-come-lately scrubber system from Holland is being pitched as a panacea; that’s maybe not true,” Byers said. “Our scrubber is the most energy-efficient scrubber there is on the market.” The pact does not mention the Byers vapor or “misting,” systems that remain the frontline odor control technology in cannabis greenhouses throughout the valley. These systems send up a curtain of non-toxic plant oils to neutralize the smell of pot, using perforated pipes that are attached to the exterior of the greenhouses. Spokesmen for both the coalition and CARP Growers say that, as the scrubbers are installed and prove to control the smell of pot, they expect the vapor systems will be phased out. As a sign of things to come, Ed Van Wingerden is applying for a permit to operate exclusively with the Dutch scrubbers and without a Byers vapor system at Roadside Blooms, a four-acre greenhouse operation at 3684 Via Real. “We’re making a leap of faith for these scrubbers,” said Mike Cooney, the county planning commissioner who represents the Carpinteria Valley. “… We’re going to do the best we can to quiet the outrage among our citizens.” Melinda Burns volunteers as a freelance journalist in Santa Barbara as a community service; she offers her news reports to multiple local publications, at the same time, for free.

County collects nearly $16 mil from cannabis this year CoastalView .com

BY DEBRA HERRICK

As of July 31, Santa Barbara County has collected $15.7 million in tax revenue from state-licensed cannabis operators for the fiscal year 2020/2021 which ended on June 30, according to a letter from county staff to the Board of Supervisors. The sum indicates a $3.5 million increase over the previous fiscal year, which saw a total of $12.2 million in cannabis tax revenue for the county. In the 2020/2021 fourth quarter, however, the county received $3.8 million in cannabis gross tax receipts, which is a 45% decrease from the tax collected for the same period the year before. County staff speculated that the tax decrease – which was reflected in low wholesale prices more generally in the cannabis sector – may be related to cultivation exceeding current demand in California. In the fourth quarter, the county collected taxes from 58 state-licensed cannabis operators and conducted nine enforcement actions against cannabis operators. Nearly 7,000 plants were eradicated, 1,615 pounds of cannabis product was confiscated, and 10 arrests were made. The total street value for the cannabis confiscated was $6.1 million. During this final quarter, the county received 518 cannabis complaints ranging from disturbances with the lighting to questions about unpermitted structures. But the vast majority of complaints – some 495 – were cannabis odor complaints stemming from the Carpinteria Valley. Odor complaints, county staff noted, are often submitted with multiple instances detected and the nearly 500 odor complaints reflect each instance documented as a separate complaint. “A majority of odor complaints in the Carpinteria area continue to origi-

nate from unpermitted, nonconforming grows,” stated the letter. The county also approved seven projects for cannabis land use entitlements and issued two cannabis business licenses. Since its inception, the county’s cannabis program has considered 181 proposals for land use entitlements and issued only 34 permits for it. Seventy-two operators submitted applications for business licenses and 24 have been issued. The county has capped business licenses at 123. The county will be hiring two new cannabis business license specialists to support the application review process. The county also plans to continue its tax audit process.

Demand for homes in Carpinteria continues to skyrocket. The median sales price for a single family home is now over $1.27 million.

Carpinteria real estate market update

CVN

THE QUARTERLY REPORT J O N - R YA N S C H L O B O H M Since June of 2020, our real estate market has been active, competitive, dynamic, challenging and unusual. We have not seen a market like this that I can remember. Covid-19 had the opposite effect on real estate than expected. Our greater Santa Barbara market experienced a huge uptick in demand. Many more buyers entered the market, causing bidding wars as multiple buyers competed for each listing; this drove prices up quickly and dramatically. We hoped that the sudden rise in value would entice many more sellers into the market and it has. We are now experiencing the highest sales volume in over 20 years. Between Sept. 1, 2020, to Aug. 31, 2021, just one year, 2,554 homes and condos were sold in Carpinteria. To put that into perspective, consider that between 2015 and 2019, we consistently saw yearly averages of around 1,827 homes sold. Even with the increased sales volume, there are still many buyers on the hunt for a home. Many agents are searching for properties for their buyers and are unable to find what their buyers are looking for. Over the last few months, our active inventory of available homes and condos for sale from Carpinteria to Goleta has been under 200 properties. This is a very

limited number of properties and at the current pace of sales, it represents less than one month supply of properties. The dilemma many sellers face in our area is that they want to continue to make Carpinteria their home. It is great if you can sell your home for a high value, but if your desire is to stay in town, then you also become a buyer and will soon have to compete for a new home from limited inventory. The question I am often asked is, how long will this continue? Our market has been on an upward swing since January 2013. At some point, it will change, but currently, we continue to have buyers ready and willing to purchase homes, even at these all-time high prices. To give you an idea of how much and how fast prices have increased, take the example of a home on Azalea Street that was sold in April of 2020 for $1,013,000. In July of 2021, the same home – without any major improvements – sold for $1,370,000. This is a 35% increase in 15 months.

2021 Carpinteria home sales Jan. 1 - Aug. 31 Median Price: $1,275,000 Average Price: $2,328,047 Total Sales: 64 Total Active Listings on Sept. 17: 10

2021 Carpinteria condo sales Jan. 1 - Aug. 31 Median Price: $690,000 Average Price: $734,713 Total Sales: 85 Total Active Listing on Sept. 17: 5

This week, I am headed to Bend, Oregon, to catch up with some of my oldest friends, the ones that, even though I don’t see them often, I know we can sit down to dinner with a glass of wine and pick up our conversations as if we see each other every day. Don’t worry too much. We are vaccinated, have a good supply of masks and are prepared to spend most of our time together outside. I look forward to this “girls only” weekend as I know it will be fun, but several of our friends died this year, and one spent months battling breast cancer. Our group is getting smaller. As I prepare for my trip, I am becoming quite nostalgic about the twists and turns life hands out, and I certainly feel that each year goes by faster and faster, especially when I look in the mirror. I taught school forever, and then I retired. My sons are now over 30, and my grandsons are all in school. I should have plenty of free time, especially during the months of Covid, but still, my days seem full of too many things to do – or maybe I just do everything slower. That certainly could be the issue. I know I am rambling a bit so let me spit this out. Change happens whether we want it to or whether we plan it or whether we try to ignore it. When I first came to Carpinteria there was a Santa sitting on top of the toy store at Santa Claus Lane, right next door to the Reindeer Room, a miniature train and a giant snowman.

It has welcomed new establishments and restaurants to become part of the city center and help Carpinteria remain a vibrant “small town.” Carpinteria residents have made several amazing changes – my favorite is saving the Bluffs. This is a gift for all who come here to enjoy, and we have insured that the Bluffs will be here long after the current citizens of Carpinteria

are gone. Another change was in 1987 when the Avocado Festival was born – a celebration that requires many hours of work for local volunteers. Yes, we have lost Sly’s and Fosters Freeze and Crush Cakes, but The Spot and Clementine’s and Zookers are still here. We also have many new and vibrant restaurants and breweries that are becoming popular hotspots, plus so many long-standing enterprises that are too many to name but certainly appreciated. Over my years in Carpinteria, I have repeatedly heard how this person wants Carpinteria to stay a sleepy beach town, or how that person doesn’t want new housing, or how someone else wants to control growth of any kind. Certainly, no major changes should occur without careful thought and discussion. But some change is inevitable. You must know that. Our job is to do the best we can to make sure whatever change is coming at us, we can live with. We need to be good stewards of our community – and this means looking out for what is best for all, not just what we want. Sometimes change is clear-cut with a positive outcome. Sometimes change means compromise. And sometimes change just needs to be stopped or at least postponed. The conundrum is sorting out the right answers and being able to live with the results – and your neighbors. Thoughts on change: Those who cannot change their minds, cannot change anything. – George Bernard Shaw Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. – Unknown Any plan is bad that cannot be changed. – Unknown The only people who like change are wet babies. – Unknown Melinda Wittwer first moved to Carpinteria in 1972 and taught mostly junior high students in Oxnard during her 25-year career.

Community rallies to clean up beaches in annual Coastal Cleanup Day event

Over 5,000 pounds of trash, recyclables collected on Saturday across Santa Barbara County BY EVELYN SPENCE • PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

John Crooke and his daughter, Isla, found 61 pieces of trash and 23 recyclable pieces.

Last Saturday kicked off the first day of Coastal Cleanup – both in the county and internationally – an effort to clean up community beaches and keep the area clean. Santa Barbara County’s cleanup is spearheaded by Explore Ecology, which organizes events at 29 cleanup sites across the county. Jan Silk, from the Carpinteria Family School, said the school has been participating in Coastal Cleanup for over 18 years. “It’s just amazing when our students and families come, and not only our students, but the community at large,” she said. “It’s the sweetest thing ever. People just want to do the right thing and protect what they love (…) For our school, it’s really a learning experience.” She said Saturday saw over 1,000 volunteers in Santa Barbara County, who together collected nearly 5,000 pounds of trash and nearly 800 pounds of recyclables countywide. Some of the most unusual

items found on the beaches, as noted in the data collected on the day of, were a padlock, a pacifier, a dog bed, a disco ball, a water tank, an iPhone case and deodorant, among others. Silk called Coastal Cleanup Day a “chance for us all to get out there and do what we can, and hopefully reduce the number of trash and recyclables we create in the first place.” “We need to change our ways,” she emphasized. At Carpinteria State Beach, more than 50 participants showed up, collecting over 28 pounds of trash and 10 pounds of recyclables. At Santa Claus Lane, 21 participants showed up and collected 77 pounds of trash, while Rincon saw 29 participants and 65 pounds of trash collection. Peter Dugre said CARP Growers put a team out on Saturday as well; the group also participates in quarterly beach clean-ups. “Teams from Cresco Labs, Autumn Brands, Glass House Farms and Coastal Blooms – all cannabis farms in Carpinteria Valley – gathered at Franklin Creek Park and set off to clean at four locations: Franklin and Santa Monica creeks, Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park and Bates Beach. Altogether, the teams gathered 200 pounds of trash including too many forgotten doggie poop bags, spray paint cans and irrigation equipment washed down from avocado ranches,” he said. “The city of Carpinteria helped us to coordinate, provided supplies and disposed of collected trash at the end of the day. We are very thankful for the city’s prioritizing of Coastal Cleanups because our coast is our most precious resource,” he added.

Health & wellness technology CVN

LET’S TALK TEK M I C H A E L AV E R Y With all the attention to health these days, I thought it would be a great idea to talk about how health and wellness are impacted by technology. Our awareness of health issues has been brought to the forefront by the Covid-19 pandemic. Technology is ever present in today’s healthcare system, whether used in diagnosis, health maintenance or the delivery of treatment. A prime example of the impact of technology in healthcare is the rapid development of the vaccines being used to treat Covid 19. Many find it difficult to believe that a viable vaccine could be developed in such a short time frame. But with new technology and around-theclock research and product development, some scientific achievements can be made in less and less time. Today, we can work on a project 24/7 because projects are handed off at the end of a business day in one time zone to a team working in another time zone. I experienced this firsthand when I worked with a Microsoft/GE-funded start-up in New Mexico. We could take a project from concept to production in a matter of weeks instead of years. Thus, developing a safe and effective vaccine in a matter of months was completely doable. And multiple companies stepped up to the challenge. You may be wondering though how technology is or can be involved in your day-to-day life and wellness. On a personal note, I recently turned 73. While I find it hard to believe that number, I also find it amazing that I have reached this age in good health. I am fortunate to enjoy a great quality of life because I have maintained my health. When I moved to Carpinteria from Honolulu in 2015, I could not say the same. I weighed almost 300 pounds and was not in good shape. I promised myself when I got here, I would do what I had to do to improve my health and my quality of life. I knew I had to eat better, get more exercise and create a healthy lifestyle. It all started with nutrition and exercise, so I started to eat better and hike. There were noticeable improvements, but I wasn’t happy with how slow the progress was, and I wondered what else I could be doing. After, talking to my doctor, seeking advice from friends and spending hours scouring the internet, I realized that as I aged, my metabolism had changed. I asked myself, how do I speed up my metabolism without artificial stimulates or synthetic chemicals that could do more harm then good?

Our awareness of health issues has been brought to the forefront by the Covid-19 pandemic. Technology is ever present in today’s healthcare system, whether used in diagnosis, health maintenance or the delivery of treatment.

My girlfriend, Jill Castro, had been trying ketone products and convinced me to give it a try. I started having a ketone beverage every morning and afternoon, held monthly 60-hour fasts, intermittently fasted and drank morning coffee with MCT oil. Now, I can proudly say I weigh 230 pounds. I have been on this regimen for over three years, and I have been able to maintain that weight. This past March, I was introduced to another product that was developed with nano technology. It was a product that could repair cells and neuro pathways, allowing the body to heal naturally. This is both an internal product in the form of a liquid and a topical product in the form of a gel. This product has improved my energy and there is a noticeable improvement in my skin. My hair would probably show significant improvements as well but since I shave my head, there is no way of knowing. Both of these products would not be possible without technology. The first was developed in the lab for military so Navy Seals and Marines could remain underwater for a longer period of time by oxygenating the blood and triggering a rapid state of ketosis. The second product was only able to be developed because of nano technology due to the size of the molecules. I am here to tell you that with the help of technology, you can improve your life and live a longer and fuller life. If you have a question about technology, reach out to me at michael@ michaeltalkstek.com or give me a call at (805) 684-3414. I love talking tek. I also love to talk health.

Ding Dong Cupcake

This month’s column is dedicated to my good friend and former coworker, Kristin Martinez. Regrettably, she passed away on Sept. 5, 2021. Kristin will be remembered by the community of Carpinteria for her sparkling personality and for always being the life of the party. Long before I met Kristin, she had the nicknames “Ding Dong” and “Cupcake,” so I knew that I had to create a Ding Dong Cupcake recipe in her honor. These moist chocolate cupcakes are filled with a marshmallow like center and glazed with chocolate ganache. They are simply delicious. If you want to skip making the marshmallow filling, you can substitute store bought fluff. Make sure to buy good quality chocolate, so it melts properly. And, when you bite into this cupcake, think of Kristin, and imagine her smiling at you. Rest in peace my friend. Yields 16 cupcakes Equipment needed: Food thermometer, muffin tin, metal bowls, whisk, mixer

1 cup heavy cream 1 ¼ cup chocolate chips ¼ t salt ½ cup white chocolate chips for signature Hostess swirl

Batter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake tins with liners. In a mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients, whisk together and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk buttermilk, egg and vegetable oil until combined. Sift dry ingredients into wet ingredients and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the hot water or coffee. Fill cupcake liners about ⅔ full and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with a few moist crumbs. Remove cupcakes from the oven and let them cool completely.

Marshmallow filling

Add three inches of water to a medium saucepan and place to simmer on medium-low heat. In a small heat-resistant bowl, add your egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar and whisk together for 30 seconds. Set the bowl over the pot of simmering water, just a couple inches above the water surface. Whisk mixture constantly

for two minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture has thinned out. The mixture should reach 160 degrees. Immediately transfer the mixture to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. If you don’t have a stand mixer, use a handheld mixer. Beat mixture on medium high speed until stiff glossy peaks form and the mixture is warm to touch. While the mixture is cooling, core your cupcakes to be filled. Use a small knife and simply cut out a cone shape from the center of the cupcakes. Now add vanilla extract and salt to the marshmallow filling and transfer to a piping bag or Ziplock with a pastry tip. Fill the cupcakes with the filling and transfer to the refrigerator to cool completely. The colder your cupcakes are the easier it will be for the ganache to stick.

Ganache

Place chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan heat cream and salt to a rolling boil and then pour over the chocolate chips. Let sit for a couple minutes before whisking the mixture together to create a smooth shiny glaze. Dip the top

Grapevine Gully

tow. It was about the size of the palm of my hand and trying to nurse on the run.

CVN

Squeaks and snuggles

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM Its tiny black button snout bumped into my weathered finger. Then the 6-week-old island fox pup proceeded to gently rub its silvery muzzle against my hand as we huddled out of the northwest winds on Santa Cruz Island. Shielded by a long shallow gully smothered in lemonade berry, purple sage and a soon to be ripe grapevine, the pup’s parents selected a great spot. From February through May 2021, I had scoured Scorpion Canyon in hopes of finding a reliable island fox den to photograph. I followed two separate mating pairs in the early mornings and late afternoons that stuck to their prospective territories, traveling the same routes several times per day. There was lots of great behavior amongst these monogamous canids as they jostled with each other while patrolling their boundaries, warding off any interlopers – fellow island foxes looking to infiltrate precious territory. Island fox dens are difficult to come by. At four pounds they are ironically the largest land predator on six of eight California Channel Islands, so they are not preyed upon, which means the parents really don’t have to worry about making a den to defend. They stay within their boundaries and sleep wherever they feel like. However, once the pups are born the parents will stick to one spot for several weeks until their pups become more mobile and can scale the volcanic rocky hillsides and seasonal arroyos. After searching for weeks and coming up empty, myself and several guides were waiting in the old corral for day visitors looking to kayak through the honeycombed, wave-battered cliffs of the most biodiverse isle off the coast. It was late May, and I was worried I was going to miss an opportunity. And then, before the boat arrived, a pair of island foxes trotted past us with a little fuzzball in

That initial family of three soon became four, the next day revealing two pups playing with their overjoyed dad within the corral. They were sleeping behind the corral in a maze of island flora and a grapevine, a holdover from the ranching era. At first it was challenging getting photos of them. The gully was a maze of long tunnels beneath the vegetation, but within the first week I had their routines dialed in. Their mom would nurse them several times a day, and their dad brought them mice and other island treats from throughout their territory, which included the cobbled shoreline, both sides of Scorpion Canyon, Scorpion Creek and the diatomaceous earth above our kayaking gear. When their doting parents were out and about, the pups roughhoused mightily. One pup was a little more aggressive, a little more curious. It had no problem sitting on my foot or tugging on my index finger, wanting to take it with it into its dense maze. Many times, I caught them just outside their den where they continually beat the snot out of each other. At the end of the day though, they came together, snuggling up in tight furballs inside one of their den sites.

Survival of the foxiest

As I waited patiently on the hillside of Grapevine Gully, there was no activity around the den site. The pups were now six weeks old and a bit more mobile, but their parents were still feeding them. Other than the wind howling, it was quiet, but not for long. The dad showed up at the den, but the pups were nowhere to be found. He had brought them a fish head brought up from the cobbled shore. He buried it under a lemonade berry bush and then left. Twenty minutes later the pups arrived. The more outgoing, aggressive pup found the fish head quickly and took off without sharing with its sibling. This was a common theme over the last three months. The other sibling didn’t have a clue and searched everywhere the greedy, more dominant sibling was not. When it finally figured things out, all that was left of the fish head was an eyeball. Not that the sweeter, kinder pup wasn’t being fed, it was doing well foraging on its own. Island foxes are omnivorous, feasting on insects, reptiles, birds, mice, isopods and berries. Recently,

Island fox pups greet their dad in Grapevine Gully. the more congenial pup encountered a yellow-bellied racer. It may have been an initial encounter. The pup was more playful with the constrictor instead of looking to feed. It batted at its tail and followed it into a tightly tangled web of island morning glory. Adventures and experiences like these will in no time serve these island fox pups well. Within the coming year they will eke

out their own territories, find mates and thrive on one of the most unique island biomes on the planet.

THROWBACK

Warrior pride since 1928

The proud tradition of Warrior football started in 1928, and by the time the 1932 team took the field, as pictured, the roster had doubled. Before the reign of football, rugby was a popular Carpinteria High School sport. This week the Warriors play Mission Prep in a home game on Friday night. To learn more about Carpinteria history, visit the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History’s website carpinteriahistoricalmuseum.org to access more articles on local history.

Goalie Jacob Taff has been a brick wall for Carpinteria, with 20 saves in the two wins.

BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

The Warriors boys water polo squad has continued a phenomenal year, notching two more wins to bring them to an overall 9-1 in the first 10 games of the season, along with a hard-earned #1 division ranking in the latest CIF polls. As of Sept. 20, Carpinteria is the topranked boys water polo team in Division 5, an impressive feat given the amount of talent in Southern California, and game after game the Warriors have proved to fight through injuries, illness and early deficits to come out on top – this week’s two wins over Foothill Tech and Buena were no different. Going into their game against Foothill Tech, the Warriors just finished a tournament in Malibu where the team won three out of four games. A couple injuries were a factor in the game, coach Jon Otsuki said, but the boys persevered and notched a 10-7 victory. “The Warriors got out to a fast start and ended the first quarter with a comfortable 4-1 lead,” Otsuki said. “Being ahead enabled those injured to rest and the reserves an opportunity for quality playing time.” Carpinteria controlled the game from start to finish, with sophomore Asher Smith continuing his run as the team’s leading scorer with three goals. Four other Warriors scored in the game: Zach

Isaac and Mateo Handall scored a pair each, and Ben Persoon and Reyn Clayton each scored one. Junior goalie Jacob Taff recorded saves on the day. Two days later, the boys traveled to Ventura to face Buena, a team that is currently ranked third in the division. The matchup proved to be shootout between two of the top ranked schools in Division 5, but Carpinteria was able to come out on top with a final score of 17-12. “It was a game of momentum swings,” Otsuki said. The Warriors jumped out to a 5-3 first quarter lead, which turned into a comfortable 9-5 halftime margin. But in the second half, Otsuki said, Buena made adjustments that forced a couple turnovers and fouls and quickly tied the score at 9-9. After the third quarter, The Warriors held on to a slim 12-10 lead and outscored Buena 5-2 in the fourth. Handall, the team’s senior captain, dished out a handful of assists and scored two; Smith led the team again with seven goals, with junior Justin Main adding three of his own; Taff tallied eight blocks for the Warriors in the win. Carpinteria faces Malibu on the road again on Thursday, Sept. 23. The Warriors beat Malibu 9-6 earlier in the season on Sept. 9.

Carpinteria girls volleyball picks up first win against Hueneme

The Warriors girls volleyball team picked up their first victory on the season, going 1-1 for the week in matches against Santa Paula and Hueneme. Against Santa Paula, the Cardinals’ defense proved too much for Carpinteria, coach Brett Shellaberger said, and Santa Paula swept the Warriors in three sets, 2514, 25-19 and 25-15. Shellaberger said that Carpinteria did have solid performances from senior Alex Zapata with nine kills, junior Ainsley Alexander with seven kills and sophomore Jada Priess with 3 aces. In their victory on the road in Ventura over Hueneme, the girls showed up strong, sweeping the Vikings in three straight sets, 25-15, 25-12 and 25-16. Senior setter Marlene Sanchez was player of the game, leading with seven aces and seven kills along with Zapata right behind with seven aces and five kills. The Warriors head into another week of games against Fillmore and Malibu.

Carpinteria girls tennis picks up another win

The Warriors girls tennis team played two matches this week, picking up a 10-8 win over Providence and taking a tough 17-1 loss. In the win over Providence, the Warriors won five singles and five doubles matches, including a three-set singles sweep by Zahra Pornish. “Zahra played excellent today,” coach Charles Bryant said. “She was patient, smart and constructed points well. She had a purpose with her shots which was great to see.” Both doubles teams played well, Bryant said, and put away shots in their five victories. Against a talented and deep San Marcos team, the Warriors struggled to find their footing in a lopsided 17-1 loss. Bryant said that although the scoreboard showed a huge deficit, the girls had some bright spots. In the end, the Royals’ experience was too much. “We had some sets that were closer than the score indicated and many points where we played fantastic, we just could not do it on a consistent basis. Their experience was definitely a big factor as they handled many of the crucial ‘big’ points better than us,” Bryant said. “But again, I was happy for the competition and although we took a big loss, I am hoping it will do us some good down the road as we start league play next week.” Carpinteria is now 4-4 overall with matches coming up against Santa Paula and Hueneme.

Cate football scores 55 points in shutout victory, starts season 2-0

Cate’s 8-man high school football team is playing bigtime football, with an undefeated 2-0 start to the season – scoring over 50 points in both wins. The Rams’ latest victory was a 55-0 shutout over Orcutt Academy, in a Saturday afternoon game at home in Carpinteria. Star senior quarterback Will Bouma continued a stellar season for Cate, passing for three touchdowns and running for another. A touchdown pass to senior Mason Oetgen closed out a 14-0 first quarter, for the Rams, and Bouma then connected with senior Ethan Ligon for his second touchdown pass of the day. His final passing touchdown came on another 54-yard strike to Oetgen. Cate went into halftime with a 46-0 lead, then added one more score in the second half with a pass from sophomore Penn Brooks to senior Matty Holmes. “All in all, after a week off, we executed well on both sides of the ball,” said coach Ben Soto. ”Matty Holmes and Mason Oetgen turned in a solid performance on both sides of the ball, and sophomore Kristian Scurtis was solid from his linebacker position.” Cate’s next matchup is at home against Chadwick, the top ranked Division 1 team; the Rams are currently ranked third. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. on Saturday Sept. 25.
