Craft market moved off Linden to 8th Street

The Carpinteria Creative Arts craft market that regularly occurs on Thursday afternoon on Linden Avenue and 8th Street next to the Farmers Market will no longer set up in the Linden Avenue intersection but will now have all their booths on 8th Street. The change was negotiated between Public Works Director John Ilasin and Louise Sciutto, a representative of Carpinteria Creative Arts, when the group applied for their yearly permit. Craft vendors in the Linden intersection raised serious issues from a public safety perspective, according to City Manager David Durflinger. Initially, the craft market was issued a permit for City Parking Lot 3, near the Amtrak Station. However, after one week in the new location, craft vendors requested to move back, closer to the Farmers Market. Ilason and Sciutto met and agreed to move the craft vendors back to 8th Street, but without access to the Linden Avenue intersection they had previously occupied. A new permit has been issued, and craft vendors will be back on 8th Street, adjacent to Rite Aid, on Thursday, Dec. 5.

Notice of Availability of Final Environmental Impact Report and Notice of Board Hearing for Carpinteria Advanced Purification Project A Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been prepared by Carpinteria Valley Water District (CVWD) for the Carpinteria Advanced Purification Project (CAPP). The EIR addresses all of the resource areas mandated by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The CAPP is located in Carpinteria, approximately 12 miles south of downtown Santa Barbara, in Santa Barbara County, California. The Study Area includes portions of CVWD’s service area within the City of Carpinteria and unincorporated Santa Barbara County adjacent to the City. The CAPP would construct an advanced water purification facility, injection wells, and pipelines to create up to 1.2 million gallons per day (mgd) of new water supply suitable for groundwater recharge and later recovery for potable use. Project components include additional treatment facilities at the Carpinteria Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), pipelines, injection and monitoring wells, pump stations, storage tanks, and other facilities to create advanced treated recycled water and recharge it into the Carpinteria Groundwater Basin. The CAPP footprint covers an up-to-40-foot wide corridor that follows the conveyance pipeline, the WWTP site, 10,000 square feet at each of up to six injection well sites, 5,000 square feet at each of three monitoring well sites, and the immediate area around the existing ocean outfall. The pipelines would generally be constructed within roadway right of ways, and would cross U.S. Highway 101 at the Linden Street Overpass.

CVWD’s Board of Directors will consider certification of the Final EIR at a public meeting held as follows:

The Carpinteria City Council acted on a series of issues in sweeping votes at its Nov. 25 meeting. In a unanimous vote, City Council agreed to send a letter to the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District requesting active regulation and monitoring of commercial cannabis cultivation. The letter states that the Air Pollution Control District should coordinate with the county of Santa Barbara “to identify stationary sources of emissions and ensure the safety of odor control systems.” The stated interest of the city is to ensure that Carpinteria Valley’s emerging cannabis cultivation industry is conducted safely with minimal public health risks. The letter moreover requests that local governing bodies do more to advocate for state legislation that would give local air pollution control districts greater regulatory authority over cannabis cultivation activities.

Bluff office concept receives favorable review

Architect Barton Myers presented an office building concept to be located on the Bluffs between S & S Seeds and PlanMember Services. num windows and doors. During the meeting, some concerns were raised about the number of parking spaces planned, given that parking demands for offices have grown in recent years beyond the city’s existing requirements. The city requires 88 spaces, which the proposal exceeds by 50 spaces. Other concerns included the building’s proximity to neighbors, the orientation around geologic fault lines, the configuration of the bluff-top trail connection, and the height of the elevator tower.

On Nov. 25, the Carpinteria City Council and Planning Commission held a conceptual review for a proposed office development on a 3.62-acre vacant lot located on the Bluffs at 6175 Carpinteria Ave. Conceptual plans for the property, located between S&S Seeds and PlanMember Services, were generally well received by the decision-makers. Plans consist of a two-story, 43,644-square-foot office building with a rooftop deck and a 133-space surface parking lot. The applicant’s architect, Barton Myers, initially designed an office project for the property that was approved in 1998 but never built. In recent years, the applicant has proposed projects that were less favorably received, mainly for the inclusion of residential units and the scale of the development. Members of the City Council and Planning Commission provided predominantly positive feedback on the design. Conceptual reviews are often held for larger development projects prior to submission of a formal development application. They provide the applicant with an opportunity to collect early input from city decision-makers and members of the public. Conceptual plans for the Bluffs office building include an east and west wing connected by a central atrium/plaza. The maximum building height is 28 feet, with two stair towers reaching 30 feet and a 42-foot tall central elevator tower in the atrium. In large part, the front and rear facades would be comprised of glass, and the central atrium/plaza would feature floor to ceiling glass at both ends. Plans also include sandstone color siding and grey anodized/alumi-

Jessie E. Dominguez 6/12/1922 – 11/22/2019

Thomas Eberle Honeyman 3/6/1945 – 11/20/2019

At 97, Jessie E. Dominguez, a long time Carpinterian, died peacefully at her home in Carpinteria on Nov. 22, 2019. In 1923, when she was a one-yearold baby, Jessie was brought to the United States from the state of Durango, Mexico, by her parents. They lived in Ventura, California, and moved to Carpinteria when Jessie was seven. Jessie attended local schools, including Aliso Elementary School, and she was a proud graduate of Carpinteria High School. Jessie was a devout catholic and supporter of St. Joseph Catholic Church. She volunteered an endless number of hours working at the enchilada booth at the St. Joseph Festival each summer. Jessie worked at the Lemon Packing House in Carpinteria for several years after which she was employed as a lead assembler of graduation class rings at Jostens Inc. for 28 years. Jessie is survived by her nieces and nephews: Joseph G. Escareno, Barbara (Tom) Siddle, Pat (Bob) Carroll, Teresa Spaulding and Carolyn (Pete) Espandola; and numerous distant nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Ralph Dominguez. The family would like to extend its sincere thanks to Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care of Santa Barbara, Dr. Eric Trautwein and Dr. Thomas Beamer, her primary physician. Special thanks to her long-time caregiver, Guadalupe Damas, for her kind support and comfort for Jessie. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019, at 1 p.m., at St. Joseph Catholic Church, followed by the graveside service at Carpinteria Cemetery. A reception venue will be announced at the service. Arrangements entrusted to Pueblo del Rey Funeral Services.

Thomas Eberle Honeyman was born in Santa Barbara, California, on March 6, 1945, to Boyd Felton Honeyman, Sr. and his wife, Stella Ruth Brown Honeyman. He passed away on Nov. 20, 2019, in Amarillo, Texas, at age 74. Tom, known to family and friends as “Tommy,” was predeceased by his parents and his sister-in-law, Sheila Moriarity Honeyman. He is survived by his brother, Boyd Felton Honeyman, Jr. (Karen) of Fillmore, California; nephews, Robert Eugene Honeyman of Shasta, California, and Michael Thomas Honeyman (wife Anna); and grandniece, Stella Alise Honeyman of Ventura, California. Tom had extended family in Texas where he made his residence since 2006. He is survived there by aunts, uncles and cousins, including Ruby and Ralph Amparano of Amarillo who were his loving caregivers in the last years of his life. Tom grew up in Carpinteria and was a longtime resident of that city, where he oversaw the care of his late parents. Following his service with the U.S. Army in the 1960s, Mr. Honeyman was employed by the Carpinteria Water District until his retirement. Along with his family, he was a member of the Carpinteria Methodist Church and participated in its youth groups. Following a visitation at the LaGroneBlackburn Shaw Funeral Home on Nov. 22, a graveside service and burial was held at Llano Cemetery in Amarillo on Nov. 23, 2019.

Paragliders support the Rincon Trail and their flying spot

The current plans for the CarpinteriaRincon Trail project will impact paragliding and hang gliding in the Carpinteria, Santa Barbara and greater SoCal areas. I am a representative of the paragliding and hang gliding community in Santa Barbara County, and myself and other members from this community recently attended a Carpinteria City Hall meeting where we were sad to find that the new plans for the trail will involve significantly cutting into Bates Ridge, which would effectively end paragliding and hang gliding in the area. We are asking the city to consider putting the trail on the north side of Bates Ridge (between the highway and the ridge), rather than cut into the oceanfacing side where the lift for flying is generated. The planned grading profile on the ocean-facing side of the ridge will decrease the steepness of the ridge, reducing or eliminating the strong upward draft necessary to fly. The grading will also decrease the distance between pilots and pedestrians/obstacles/the ground, making for dangerous conditions. Additional grading shelves will likely disrupt airflow and/or make it too turbulent. Ninety percent of the flying at Bates occurs on this ridge, which is one of only three ridges available for flying between San Diego and Big Sur. Hang gliders and paragliders have been flying here for 30-plus years—it is a historic site with hundreds of pilots flying here every year. Pilots have moved to Carpinteria specifically for the flying. Many paragliders and hang gliders are also cyclists, rollerbladers or runners—we think the bike path is a great idea. We would like to work with the city to find an option that does not destroy this beautiful, historic site.

Not feeling Capps’ strategy

I understand that Laura Capps is running for County Supervisor as a campaign ethics reformer. If only her deeds matched her words. I recently saw an email that originated from the Capps campaign, informing supposed “supporters” that they need to let the campaign know if they do not want to be on her list of endorsers. In other words, they have to actively “opt out,” even if they have not explicitly endorsed her—even if they don’t actually support her. This is not standard campaign practice: candidates are supposed to actively request endorsements, and many go so far as to get written authorization from endorsers to ensure that they don’t claim support they don’t have. Indeed, several people I know have already objected and asked to be removed, both because they have not endorsed and because they are concerned about the ethics of using an “opt out” process. Bottom line: it is unethical to claim sup-

Wary of recycled water

Carpinteria is well served by our two water-related agencies, but we are also dependent on governmental agencies external to our direct control. I worked for the Office of the California Legislative Analyst (LAO) and did forensic audits/ analyses on many state and local agencies and their programs. Recently, based on my LAO training, I did an analysis of the capacity of county and local governments to review and work with water districts to meet the recommendations of the state’s Expert Panel Final Report on Recycled Water. In particular, I looked at the recommendations for dealing with the use of recycled water and its potential for carrying antibiotic resistance, resistancegenerating bacterial genes and other pathogens. The state’s expert panel recommended that any water district contemplating the use and delivery of recycled water should develop a well-considered tracking/ monitoring system for rapidly ascertain-

ing disease outbreak. This would seem to require direct coordination with local public health agencies—most probably including County Public Health and County Environmental Health. In reviewing both of these county health-related agencies, their response was that such a coordinated program with water agencies was beyond their capacity, interest and jurisdiction. Further analysis demonstrated that they did not have the lab equipment, funding, or staff to accomplish the recommendations of the Expert Panel. Since neither the Carpinteria Valley Water District nor the sanitary district is set up to coordinate with public health agencies, the citizens of Carpinteria may be at considerable risk. I brought this deficit and policy flaw to the county board of supervisors some time ago, but answers to this and any panel discussion seems also to have been kicked down the road. The issue needs to be addressed, but with the level of nonaction by public agencies where will the can, as being kicked down the road, stop?

Cannabis: same as it ever was

As a local mom, I’ve thought a lot about cannabis farming in Carpinteria. It’s now a fact of life that cannabis is legal. I never thought cannabis was a big deal, because it has been around in Carpinteria ever since I was a kid and before that. It’s funny that now that it’s legal it has now become a big issue for some people, as if the plant being around is some huge change. Whether you can smell it sometimes or see advertising for it on billboards in LA, it’s the same cannabis that has been everywhere as long as I can remember. Being open about it is much better than being weird and secretive about it. I don’t personally see cannabis farming locally as a big deal for myself or my family. In fact, CARP Growers supported our youth football program, which made it affordable for every family. Frankly, it’s frustrating to see people attacking the local farmers for growing a different plant.

School Board continues with Bailard property sale By William armshaW

Members of the Carpinteria Unified School Board met Tuesday, Nov. 26, to approve the first step in the $4.2 million sale of district property on Bailard Avenue to the county of Santa Barbara Housing Authority. Despite some concerns voiced by Trustee Rogelio Delgado, the board voted unanimously to continue the process. Members also heard from Superintendent Diana Rigby, who described events in the Aliso Elementary robotics program, as well as the inaugural year of the district’s new Destination College Advising Corps. District legal counsel Craig Price presented the board with an update on the $4.2 million sale of the Bailard property to the Santa Barbara Housing Authority. “Obviously, this has been a long time coming,” said Price, noting the importance of adding “much-needed affordable housing for Carpinteria.” Price described the property sale as “being for a good purpose,” and noted the $4.2 million price is well above the property’s $3.9 million appraisal. Trustee Rogelio Delgado argued that parking is already limited in the area, that he is afraid of construction noise, and that “crime will go up.” Price responded that “the city and the planning commission and the council are very attentive to the


the lay of the land mike wondolowski Last week on the news I heard about a new United Nations report on progress towards globally agreed climate goals. For a decade, this annual “Emissions Gap Report” ( has documented the gap between actual greenhouse gas emissions and what they need to be to limit global temperature increases to the 1.5- to two-degree Celsius range. This is the limit for how much temperatures can rise and not cause devastation, even though impacts will still be severe. How does this year’s report look? Not good. Worldwide greenhouse gas emissions last year were higher than any year in history. Even if all commitments under the Paris Agreement are implemented (which is not a slam-dunk), we are still on course for a 3.2-degree Celsius temperature rise. The report states, “Our collective failure to act strongly and early means that we must now implement deep and urgent cuts.” But aren’t we just learning about this issue? Isn’t there more to figure out? How could we have acted earlier? I did a little research on this, and here are just a few tidbits I found… In 1859, an Irish physicist named John Tyndall found that carbon dioxide absorbed heat and that variations in the composition of the atmosphere could create changes in climate. Inspired by that finding, Svante Arrhenius, a Swedish chemist and future Nobel laureate, deduced in 1896 that the combustion of coal and petroleum could raise global temperatures. Arrhenius calculated this warming would become noticeable in a few centuries, or sooner if consumption of fossil fuels continued to increase (which it very much did). In 1957, scientists from Humble Oil

impacts that are associated with any development” and reflected on the city’s rigorous approval process for new housing growth projects. Board President Andy Sheaffer added his strong endorsement to the proposal, reminding the board of Carpinteria’s long-running struggles with maintaining affordable housing stock, and noting that parking concerns will be at the top of the list of concerns of local government agencies. Superintendent Rigby, in her regular report, praised the elementary students in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program, led by coordinator Teresa Koontz, who demonstrated their robotics projects to representatives from oil giant Chevron and the Carpinteria Education Foundation. The students showed off their work in the school’s Innovation Lab. The robotics program is the brainchild of Project Lead the Way, a national STEM education organization. The Superintendent introduced the district’s new Destination College Advising Corps (DCAC), a program designed to support college goals for low income, minority and first-generation students. Carpinteria High School is one of the first five schools in the state to participate in the inaugural year of the program, which is a result of a partnership between the University of California Santa Barbara and

Legal counsel Craig Price described the property sale as “being for a good purpose,” and noted the $4.2 million price is well above the property’s $3.9 million appraisal. the College Advising Corps. Rigby praised the work of CHS’s new college adviser, Leslie Perez, and announced an ambitious goal of 100 percent of the graduating class pursuing four-year, community or technical college education. The trustees unanimously approved a host of updates to board policy on such topics of tuberculosis testing and probationary periods for new hires. Board members also voted to pursue a competitive grant for matching funds for Career and Technical Education facilities. The goal is to modernize the former wood shop at CHS, a space that has not been used for teaching purposes for over 20 years. Under Rigby’s plan, the state would supply $1.2 million in matching funds while Measure U funds would cover the rest. Both Rigby and Sheaffer praised CHS principal Gerardo Cornejo

for developing the grant proposal and identifying creative avenues for increasing investment in Carpinteria schools. In a sign of its increasing importance, the district’s Special Education Office has relocated from outdated portables on the CHS campus to the site of the former Rincon school on Foothill Road. Special education spending has risen at a notable clip over the past decade, mirroring trends throughout California and nationwide. The board also approved contracts for completed Measure U construction projects, including campus modernization at Canalino Elementary. There will be a Measure U comprehensive update at the board meeting on Jan. 14, 2020. Finally, both Rigby and Sheaffer extolled coach Sergio Castaneda of CHS for being named Coach of the Year by the Citrus Coast Water Polo League.

We cannot afford to fail

(later renamed Exxon) published a study tracking “the enormous quantity of carbon dioxide” contributed to the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution “from the combustion of fossil fuels.” In 1958, prime-time television aired “The Unchained Goddess,” a film about meteorological wonders, warning that “man may be unwittingly changing the world’s climate” through the release of carbon dioxide. “A few degrees’ rise in the Earth’s temperature would melt the polar ice caps.” The film was shown in science classes for decades. A 1968 study by the American Petroleum Institute conducted by the Stanford Research Institute concluded that the burning of fossil fuels would bring “significant temperature changes” by the year 2000 and ultimately “serious worldwide environmental changes,” including the melting of the Antarctic ice cap and rising seas. In 1974, the C.I.A. issued a classified report that concluded that climate change had begun around 1960 and had “already caused major economic problems throughout the world.” The future economic and political impacts would be “almost beyond comprehension.” The first World Climate Conference was held in Geneva in 1979. In 1989, in his first speech as secretary of state, James Baker (previously Ronald Reagan’s chief of staff) said, “We can probably not afford to wait until all of the uncertainties about global climate change have been resolved. Time will not make the problem go away.” Every US President since Kennedy has explored the politics of acting on climate policy after being advised on the technical realities. Congress has been holding hearings for 40 years. So, no, we are not just hearing about this now. There is nothing more we need to figure out before taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Deep and urgent cuts in emissions are needed right now. That means we must support national and statewide efforts, as well as act locally. We each need to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure our local community does everything it can. As a coastal community, Carpinteria is

(Although the impacts from extreme weather events, drought and wildfires hit close to home too.) But the effect of sea level rise is clearly the most fundamental threat we face, and cleareyed planning and adaptation is critical. Fortunately, this process has begun with the city’s General Plan Update, and as that process proceeds, the entire community must engage in it fully. This excerpt from last week’s Emissions Gap Report summarizes our task: “We have to learn from our procrastination. Any further delay brings the need for larger, more expensive and unlikely cuts… The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned us that going beyond 1.5-degrees Celsius will increase the frequency and intensity of climate impacts, such as the heatwaves and storms witnessed across the globe in the last few years. We cannot afford to fail.” Mike Wondolowski is president of the Carpinteria Valley Association (, a local organization dedicated to maintaining the small beach town nature of our community. In his 30 years of involvement in planning issues, he has witnessed visionary successes, as well as decisions that were later widely regretted. When not stuck indoors, he can often be found

enjoying Carpinteria’s treasures including kayaking and snorkeling along the coast, running or hiking on the bluffs or the Franklin Trail, or “vacationing” as a tent camper at the State Beach.

Wildlife corridors and connectivity: lessons in urban ecology CVN




I recently crossed paths with one of the biggest and most beautiful coyotes I’ve ever seen while walking my dog on the Bluffs just after sunrise. It was tall and sleek, with a thick, shiny coat and direct stare. We walked towards one another until I turned so as not to trap it in a narrow space with thick plant growth along both sides of the path. Walking away I continued to glance over my shoulder, marveling at this animal’s size and beauty until it slipped through a break in the undergrowth and vanished. Wildlife sightings are not unusual in Carpinteria. We are fortunate to be surrounded by a vast and still wild mountain range, with healthy chunks of coastal

Coyotes are an important part of Carpinteria’s urban ecosystem, serving as a keystone species to keep small rodents and mammals in check. bluff and salt marsh on either side of town. Great blue herons, kites, osprey, hawks, foxes and coyotes hunt abundant small mammals along the coastal bluffs. I often hear the shrill warning calls of ground squirrels, looking up just in time to see a hawk with wings outstretched diving towards earth, or a heron grasping a wriggling gopher in its thin beak. across town from the coastal bluffs, the Carpinteria Salt Marsh is home to more than 190 bird species, including solitary black crowned night herons and several state-listed threatened or endangered birds, as well as migratory water fowl stopping briefly during their long journey to northern breeding grounds to rest and forage in tidal channels and salt flats. Coyotes prowl the high, dry berms of the salt marsh as well, seeking fish left gasping as the tide recedes. Here at the Carpinteria Garden Park, where a wild abundance of thorny native roses and arches of elderberry grow a tangled thicket of protection, roadrunners, warblers, sparrows and thrushes now feel safe enough to forage on the ground for food. While I have yet to see a coyote within the community garden, long-fingered racoons often leave their crisscrossing steps on the front porch. the coyote I saw is one of many which call the coastal bluffs, salt marsh and neighborhoods of Carpinteria home, a keystone predator responsible for maintaining balance. keystone species are named after the keystone of an arch—if removed, the arch collapses. Similarly, animals or plants which are keystone species in their environment are central to the health of their world and have an outsized effect on ecosystem balance. keystone species vary widely with the terrain. In the forests of the North Coast, one single old-growth redwood is home to thousands of other plants, animals, birds, invertebrates and even aquatic organisms, since there can be year-round pools of water holding fish and amphibians in the crooks of ancient branches. In the environment of the deep ocean, a whale carcass floating down to settle in an ocean trench will become food and shelter for countless deep-water organisms which rely on marine debris for survival. Here in Carpinteria, coyotes are one of our keystone species. left unchecked, gophers and ground squirrels are devastating to plant life which is the backbone

Wildlife biologists have petitioned Ventura and Los Angeles County supervisors to construct wildlife corridors over and under Highway 101 to allow safe passage between the mountains and the coast for these essential predators to find food and mates. of every ecosystem. In other parts of the country, coyotes have found myriad other ways to eat. they are famously clever and adaptable, making them uniquely successful in developed landscapes. Coyotes have expanded their range from an original locus in the desert Southwest to both coasts and have pressed far into cities such as los angeles and New York City. Birds, small mammals and predators such as coyote, fox and raccoon are able to thrive within our lushly surrounded urban area thanks to the ideal connectivity of our town. Humans can easily move between the estuarine habitat of the salt marsh along the coast to the tall bluffs ringing rincon Point. other animals, especially larger predators such as coyotes, require this same freedom and flexibility of movement to satisfy their needs for food, shelter and mates. Wildlife biologists and ecologists are beginning to appreciate and develop the connectivity and suitability of urban environments for biodiversity as more and more wild lands are developed and fragmented. this is not to say that urban sprawl is acceptable as long as wildlife corridors are maintained. Future growth into wild spaces must be smarter and more conservative to preserve what natural habitat remains. However, there is an increasing recognition that urban areas can and should be designed to better

accommodate the other-than-human world. the idea of “wildlife corridors” is a hot topic in wildland science—spaces where animals can pass freely and safely through their traditional range. Carpinteria is fortunate to have preserved enough green space that these wildlife corridors naturally occur. encountering that early morning coyote along the bluffs was a happy sign from another species—a reminder that we share space with so many other beings that deserve to feel at home.

Olsson’s production of “A Christmas Carol” will close after 29 seasons

This year’s production of “A Christmas Carol” at the Alcazar Theatre will mark director Asa Olsson’s 29th and final year directing the show. olsson says that by stepping down she is “leaving room for a younger generation of directors to choose how they would like to delight our audiences in anticipation of the holidays.” The production will show for only one weekend this year, with performances at 7 p.m. on Dec. 12, 13 and 14, and at 2 and 5 p.m. on Dec. 15. olsson has been involved with the Alcazar Theatre, formerly the Carpinteria Community Theatre, since 1982 as a board member, director, set builder, light and sound technician, costumer and more. Her production of Charles Dickens’s tale debuted in 1990 and has become a well-loved Carpinteria holiday tradition. “not a year has gone by when I haven’t been approached by community members about when the opening night would take place,” olsson said. “It has become a tradition for many families to be a part of the production as cast, crew or simply as audience.” Many of the show’s actors have returned each year, with olsson giving them a chance to try out different characters. She says that she has watched the children in the show grow up right before her and return year after year as they pursue their love of theatre. “I will miss it greatly, working with a cast of all ages, walks of life and various theatrical experiences,” olsson said. “It has been a work of true passion, and a need to keep live theatre as an integral part of our community. our open auditions have brought people out of the

My maternal great-grandparents were born in Istanbul and immigrated to New York City in the early 1900s. Growing up in New York’s Catskill Mountains, I remember over the holidays visiting my grandfather’s apartment in Manhattan. After the long drive, we’d cross the George Washington Bridge, and our first stop was a tiny Iraqi restaurant near Gramercy Park, a neighborhood brimming with the culture and people of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Israel and Palestine. After dinner, my mother sipped Turkish coffee, and my father, brother and I devoured Middle Eastern confections. We coated our fingers in honey, grabbing sticky baklava triangles. We savored rich bites from fresh bars of halva. Golden phyllo flakes and pressed sesame butter crumbled on our plates. Originally from Istanbul, “baklava” comes from the Farsi word for “many leaves.” Bakers have been stuffing chopped nuts and spices between thin layers of honey-brushed dough for hundreds of years. The sweet pastry is a staple on holiday tables in Sephardic Jewish families, like mine, celebrating a cultural heritage connected to Turkey and Spain. Time consuming to make and indulgently sweet, baklava is a dessert for special occasions. —DebraH errick

Warrior boys basketball delivers win By Alonzo orozo

Another chapter for Carpinteria High School boys basketball has begun to unfold with new coach Scott Sorich at the helm. On Nov. 26, the Warriors came out firing on all cylinders as they seized a 23-6 lead by the end of the first quarter en route to a 74-41 victory at Warriors Gym. The results marked the first win for Sorich as a Carpinteria coach, and the team improved to 1-1 on the year. At the first game of the season, the Warriors were edged on the road at Channel Islands by a score of 47-46. “Being in the home gym is always a good thing. It showed, we came out aggressive and confident on offense and defense,” said Sorich. Sophomore Dylan O’Neill led the way with 11 first half points as Carpinteria secured a 30-18 halftime lead. “Defensively, there are specific things that we’re trying to do with our players,” said Sorich. “I’ve seen lots of signs of improvement, it’s still early in the season but there’s definitely lots of really good signs.” Junior Jose Suarez pitched in six and senior Luke Nakasone tallied five, rounding out the Warriors’ first half attack. Senior Ian Reed fed Suarez for a bucket inside to begin the third quarter, and O’Neill knocked down two three-pointers to extend the lead to 38-22. O’Neill led all scorers in the game with 27 on the night. Senior Gabriel Medel also went in for an easy layup putting the home team up 4929. And, another senior, JoJo Gonzalez, found O’Neill open on the baseline, promptly nailing a trey. Carpinteria was up 55-29 at the end of the third. In the fourth quarter, the Warriors continued finding the open man. Reed connected with Medel in stride for an easy lay-in. Medel scored the first six points of the final frame, all on drives to the hoop. “If we can play a balanced game inside and out, it makes it easier for everybody,” explained Sorich. “It makes the defense have to guard everything, instead of us being one dimensional.” Medel and Suarez each scored 10 points on the night. Sophomore Mateo Handall also contributed, scoring six in the fourth on a variety of inside and outside shots. Handall finished with nine for the game and Gonzalez ended with six on two three-pointers. Sophomore Matthew Garcia registered five points and Nakasone also finished with five. Reed ended with two, along with a number of assists. The Warriors will have a busy December with back-to-back games against Foothill Tech, one at Ventura College on Dec. 10 and another to open up the Fillmore Tournament on Dec. 12, which runs through Dec. 14. Then, they will host the Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic on Dec.

The Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table named Carpinteria High School Class of 2017 alum Elizabeth Estrada one of its Athletes of the Week. Santa Barbara High School football player Johnny Valencia was also recognized. Estrada, currently a sophomore goalkeeper for SBCC’s women soccer team, led the Vaqueros to victory in the 2019 SoCal Regionals. In the opening round of Regional play, Estrada converted the winning goal off a penalty kick, and later in the match, she made the final save to secure the victory.

Both Carpinteria High School and Cate School athletic programs earned recognition last week. CHS boys water polo coach Sergio Castaneda was named Coach of the Year in the Citrus Coast League. The Warriors finished a perfect 8-0 before falling to Millikan of Long Beach in the first round of the CIF-SS Division Four playoffs. Cate School girls volleyball player Grace Blankenhorn was also honored. Blankenhorn was named to the All CIF-SS Division Six Team.

PreP News Carpinteria School

Girls soccer

November 20 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team dropped a nonleague game at Santa Clara, 2-1. Aly Springer scored the only Warrior goal about 30 minutes in off a free kick. The Saints evened the game at 1-1 about five minutes into the second half. “The Saints had a few chances that our keeper, Ariana Lounsbury, turned away time and time again,” said Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant. On a lategame corner kick, the Saints took multiple shots within six yards of the goal, and got one in. Within seconds, the referee blew the final whistle, and Santa Clara took the 2-1 decision. Carpinteria is now 1-1 overall. November 21 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team defeated La Reina in a non-league game, 2-0. “Our keeper, Ariana Lounsbury, was great again, she is just fearless coming off her line,” said Warriors coach Charles Bryant. Aly Springer scored off a free kick from about 22 yards away for the second game in a row to put Carpinteria up, 1-0. “Our next goal was a great combination play in the Regents offensive third and was finished by Cydney Smolnikar,” said Bryant. “We started off a little slow, but really changed gears and had a very solid overall match.” Carpinteria is now 2-1 overall. December 2 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team suffered a 2-0 nonleague loss at St. Bonaventure. “Unfortunately, we just could not get any rhythm going in the first half,” said Warriors coach Charles Bryant. “The Seraph goal late in the first half just seemed a matter of time as they had one speedster who got behind us on a few occasions and I was slow to make a change to prevent it from continuing.” The second Seraph goal came from a corner kick. The Warriors are 2-2 on the year.

December 3 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team dropped a nonleague game to Rio Mesa, 1-0. “I thought we played well and definitely well enough to win. We just could not finish quite a few opportunities,” said Warriors coach Charles Bryant. “There will be a few kinks to work out, but there definitely is potential.” Carpinteria is now 2-3 overall.

Girls basketball

November 21 - The Carpinteria High School girls basketball team hosted Providence in their first game of the season at Warriors Gym, walking away with a 57-13 win. First year freshman player Lilly Baker contributed 10 points off the bench for Carpinteria. The leading scorer was Hannia Hernandez with 18 points, and Gabriella Graham also tallied 10. “The game began with the Warriors playing with high intensity on the defensive end which led to several breakaway steals giving the Warriors some easy layups,” said Carpinteria coach Benti De La Cruz. In the second period, Providence put five points on the board, but the Warriors went into halftime up, 34-5. Carpinteria’s overall record improves to 1-1.

Girls water polo

November 22 - The Carpinteria High School girls water polo team visited Royal in Simi Valley for their second game of the season, dropping an 11-9 decision. “Senior Lexi Persoon had multiple steals while guarding the two-meter position and won three out of four sprints, and Alex Zapata kept the team in the game with two consecutive goals after timeouts when the Warriors were down,” said Warriors coach Sergio Castaneda. “The game went back and forth and was tense with good play from both teams.” Carpinteria is now 1-1 on the season.

Boys soccer

December 2 - The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team lost a Monday night match at Dos Pueblos by a score of 4-0. David Celio and Brian Garcia combined at goal for 10 saves. “Other notable players tonight were back line seniors Gabe Perez and Capitan Enrique Gutierrez, junior Emilio Perez also played solid defense,” said Warriors coach Leo Quintero. Junior Christian Flores slid into the mid and also played well.” Carpinteria starts the season at 0-3.

Girls basketball

Cate School

November 21 - The Cate School girls basketball team played their season opener against the San Marcos Royals, falling by a score of 46-35. “The Rams opened the game looking sharp with tough team defense and junior Lily Zanze hit three impressive shots to get Cate on the scoreboard first,” said Cate coach Laura Moore. Senior Maya Blattberg also contributed 13 points in the first half. At halftime, the Royals were leading 27-21. The Royals pressed in the first half and the beginning of the third quarter. “Rather than succumbing to the pressure, the Rams battled back with the remarkable effort of junior Deborah Brittain and seniors Piper Brooks, Maya Blattberg, Jess Yang and Natasha Weis,” said Moore. Blattberg finished with 17 points and seven rebounds, and Zanze scored six points and grabbed eight offensive rebounds. Brittain also tallied 13 rebounds. The Rams are back in action at home on Thursday, Dec. 5 against Foothill Tech at 5:30 p.m.

Girls tennis

November 25 - The Cate School girls tennis team had two of its players, Grace Fuss and Carol Cai, advance to the CIF Individual Sectionals held in Seal Beach. Fuss and Cai are the Tri-Valley League’s two-time defending champion doubles team. The tournament they competed in, held at Carpinteria and Cate high schools, is one of five regional events held simultaneously to decide the top 20 singles players and doubles teams in the CIF-Southern Section. Fuss and Cai entered as the Number-three seed with a bye, followed by two straight-set wins. December 3 - Cate School senior tennis players, Grace Fuss and Carol Cai dispatched of their Edison opponents in the play-in doubles round of the CIF Sectionals in Seal Beach. The Cate duo claimed a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Zoe Coggins and Kailee You of the Southern California school. Coggins is a nationally ranked senior who has already been signed by Division Two Dominican University of San Rafael, California. Her partner is also a nationally ranked player. “Carol has been here before and won in this round (two years ago with her sister Jackie), but to be honest, I’ve never seen either Carol or Grace play so freely on the doubles court,” said Rams coach Trevor Thorpe. The Cate pair will return to the Seal Beach Tennis Center for the Round-of-16.

the BOOK NOOK Carpinteria Library recommends

“Press Enter to Continue” by Ana Galvan

“Press Enter to Continue” by Spanish illustrator Ana Galvan is a dystopian fluorescent fever dream. The graphic novel is kind of hard to follow but easy to accept, as it is set in a near and dehumanizing future. The illustrations are gorgeous and the words are sparse, making the novel almost like a video game. The characters move forward through geometric shapes advancing themselves to further isolation and paranoia. It’s a short read and follows a few characters who trying to survive an inhumane world. Our first character is a trapeze artist who finds about the former trapeze artist he is replacing and does not want to follow the same fate. The second character is a woman going through the most demoralizing job interview. She enters and leaves on all fours through what could be described as a dog door for humans. The third story is a love story between two people in a technological internment camp where people’s data is mined. If that isn’t bleak enough, the last story is about a woman suffering from strange visions brought on by the government. The visions are supposed to lead their victims to suicide as a sort of population control. If you’re looking for a feel-good book this isn’t it, but do pick it up if you like dystopian reads. Recommended for teens and adults. —Blanca Ramirez, Librarian, Carpinteria Library

“Washington Black” by Esi Edugyan

Eleven-year-old George Washington Black—or Wash—a field slave on a Barbados sugar plantation, is initially terrified

when he is chosen as the manservant of his master’s brother. To his surprise, however, the eccentric Christopher Wilde turns out to be a naturalist, explorer, inventor, and abolitionist. Soon Wash is initiated into a world where a flying machine can carry a man across the sky, where even a boy born in chains may embrace a life of dignity and meaning, and where two people, separated by an impossible divide, can begin to see each other as human. But when a man is killed and a bounty is placed on Wash’s head, they must abandon everything and flee together. Over the course of their travels, what brings Wash and Christopher together will tear them apart, propelling Wash ever farther across the globe in search of his true self. Spanning the Caribbean to the frozen far North, London to Morocco, Washington Black is a story of self-invention and betrayal, of love and redemption and of a world destroyed and made whole again. —Blanca Ramirez, Librarian, Carpinteria Library

“I am Malala: The Girl who Stood up for Education” by Malala Yousafzai

“I am Malala: The Girl who Stood up for Education” caught my attention after hearing all over the news about what Malala had been through. All this young girl wanted to do was go to school, grow up and have a degree. None of that was going to happen—she wouldn’t make it but a few days in the hospital. Hearing that a young girl was going to lose her life due to the Taliban taking over in her country broke my heart into pieces. I cannot believe that people would do such a thing to a young girl (Malala was shot by a Taliban militant in the Swat region of Pakistan in October, 2012) for wanting to learn and educate herself. This book, written by Malala herself, gives such great insight into what happened that day and what was going on in her country. She gives such detail about when she got shot and was in the hospital fighting for her life. Malala’s book makes us realize how lucky we are to be in the United States and how much freedom we get. No one in this world deserves to get shot for wanting their education or their rights. Malala’s words will persuade you to stand up for yourself and for young girls all around the world in order to make change. I truly recommend this book as it is such a current situation for so many and quite touching. —Rudy Jimenez, Carpinteria High School

James Williams and his father, Ryan Williams, are the creators of a new app called GYDO-Get Your Drink On.

New app helps people buy drinks for friends

Ever wanted to buy your buddy a drink to celebrate their birthday or anniversary but aren’t there to take them to the bar? GYDO-Get Your Drink On, a local Carpinteriabased company, hopes to solve that quandary. “We have basically digitized the age-old concept of being able to buy a friend a beer,” said creator Ryan Williams. “We wanted to find a way to connect with our friends on a more intimate level than a simple Facebook ‘like’ or ‘thumbs up’ to celebrate their engagement or job promotion. Now, anyone anywhere in the world simply finds a participating venue, selects the drink, and tags their friend. Their friend gets a QR code, which they present to the server to dispense the drink.” The official launch party for GYDO was held at Island Brewing Company. IBC has been the beta test venue over the last six months for the app. To learn more about GYDO, visit

A flash of blue


UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM I’d waited six months for this moment and was hoping for an easier time of it, but sometimes you just have to put your head down and lay into it. I see island scrub jays every time I head out to Santa Cruz Island. Even though they possess the most restricted range of any species in North America, they’re virtually a guarantee once I touch down on the cobbled beaches of Santa Cruz. Biologists from the Smithsonian have been studying them extensively for seven years on The Nature Conservancy (TNC) side of Santa Cruz, so gaining access as a camera- toting journalist wearing nothing more than a personal floatation device and a pair of salt-encrusted camouflaged shorts was going to be difficult. I didn’t have any required paperwork to set foot on their region of the mountainous isle but Scott Sillett, the lead biologist studying island scrub jays for the Smithsonian, said I could get some shots of them wrangling jays on the Pelican Trail—the only trail open to the public on TNC land. The only hitch was that anyone on the Pelican Trail was required to be accompanied by a naturalist from Island Packers, the boat concessionaire to the islands. I didn’t ask how I was gaining access there. I just took for granted that Sillett knew it would be okay, so I told him I would be there bright and early the next morning at Prisoners Harbor. I was leading kayak trips six miles to the southeast at Scorpion Anchorage when I received Sillett’s text. Northwest winds had been howling down channel for days, bordering on a gale. Island Packers wasn’t coming out until noon the next day. I needed to be there at 8 a.m. I was going to need to kayak over early the next morning. “Paddle well,” was all Sillett had to say in his text the night before. Backtrack six months ago. I tried connecting with Sillett and his jay crew and was initially told to come over, only to be denied by the TNC. Too many people to keep track of was the word I got. Six months felt like forever while trying to pull a story together, but here I was in the middle of October, and it’s blowing like it’s April. I could’ve pouted about it but what good would that have done? I was definitely going to meet them. The northwesterly winds calmed down to 20 mph during the night of Oct. 18. It was doable: six miles of paddling into a stiff headwind, with a three-quarter moon and bioluminescence to light the way. I launched at 5 a.m. from Scorpion Anchorage. Paddling was smooth until a mile up the island at Cavern Point, where heading North is always a chore against strong northwest winds. Threefoot ground swell combined with wind swell made for super choppy slog, as it’s very hard to get into a paddling rhythm in those uneven conditions. The worst of it came shortly after at what is known as “the Pinnacles.” I call it “the Witches Hat” and it looked ominous backlit in the moon. I typically cut between the Witches Hat and the island

Paddling back from the jays, Chuck Graham captures a view of the north side of Santa Cruz Island. but I nearly blew it, fooled by the moonlight and the glare off the water. The swell was big enough that it was sucking out and waves were washing through to the cliffs of the isle. I couldn’t see what was happening from where I was in the dark, so I went for it. There’s nothing worse than feeling the water suck out next to cliff, inside a cave or next to large rock outcroppings. When I felt the water suck out and saw the first wave approaching it was nearly too late. I only had one opportunity, sinking the paddle on my port side and pulling hard on my left, while directing the bow of my kayak into an oncoming head-high wave that washed over me. I managed to stay in the boat but was pushed in between some large rock outcroppings and nearly collided with the cliff. The next wave was just as big, but was got a few strokes in and plowed through the surf and got beyond the Witches Hat. From there, it was a lot more battling into the wind, but I touched down at Prisoners after twoand-a-half hours of paddling. Sillett met me at the pier, and I was out of the kayak and on the Pelican Trail before I knew it. A mile or so later we reached the Smithsonian crew trapping jays the “Wiley Coyote way” with a stick, a string and a small cage. They used peanuts to lure the birds in close to trap them. “Peanutified” is what Sillett called the jays as they lured them into the trap. Each jay is given a thorough health check. West Nile Virus is always a threat and several people, including Sillett, say it’s not a matter of if, but when some of them will contract the virus. The jays are amazing and are responsible for reestablishing island oak groves upslope to catch fog drip, which is the largest water input on the islands. There are over 2,400 jays on Santa Cruz Island, and one adult jay caches 3,500 – 6,000 acorns per year.

A researcher from the Smithsonian holds a jay after capture. They thrash through piles of oak leaves, virtual dumpster divers, searching for precious acorns. When they find them, they innately place the acorn point down, thus planting the next seedling, the ecogardeners of the isle. For decades, they’ve spread oak groves across ridgetops on mountainous Santa Cruz Island. The jays went extinct on Santa Rosa and San Miguel Islands in the late 1880s during the ranching era, and biologists talk amongst themselves, discussing the possibility of reestablishing jays on those islands, especially with the threat of West Nile in the air. In the meantime, the island scrub jay flourishes on Santa Cruz Island, a flash of deep blue streaking through the rocky canyons choked in island oak trees leading to the ridgetops.

Artisans and shoppers convene at Holiday Faire PhoTos By RoBiN KARlssoN

Saturday, Nov. 30, dawned with cold rain and a light dusting of snow on the ridge of Santa Ynez range. But the conditions were not enough to deter determined holiday shoppers and local artisans attending the 39th annual Holiday Faire at the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History on Maple Avenue. California-based vendors offered their wares and shoppers were treated to the old-timey, foot-tapping sounds of the Americana Cats. Santa and Mrs. Claus made an early season appearance and kids’ face painting and hot chocolate and other delights rounded-out the day. As they say in Scandinavia: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!”

At right, the cold rain couldn’t keep museum volunteers Janet Beilke and Wilma heidenrich from pitching in.

ToP: Block-print artist Jeremy Kirchhoff provides Pat Rivier with the perfect holiday gift for someone on her list.

lEFT: hat maker irene Garza had perhaps the day’s mostappropriate offering

santa made a special appearance at the holiday Faire in his North Pole regalia, which liam Killen, in beachready attire, appreciated.

With tides often running more than six-feet, as well as regular heavy surf from the Northwest, the berm protects beachfront homes and the adjacent neighborhood from storm surge. KARLSSON
