A Deodar cedar makes a dramatic entrance to its temporary home at the Seal Fountain Plaza on the morning of Nov. 29. The stunning tree marks the epicenter of holiday activities for downtown Carpinteria. Readers can look forward to hearing from commentators stationed beside the tree during next Saturday’s holiday parade, on Dec. 10 at 3 p.m. And later that evening the cedar will transform into the Hospice Tree and don silver stars honoring loved ones lost.

Registration opens for Rincon Classic

Karlsson

The berm is being constructed between Ash and Linden avenues.

The berm goes up

Bulldozers are hard at work this week pushing up mountains of sand to protect public and private properties along the city beaches from winter high tides and storm surges. The berm, an annual flood control measure, is typically constructed just after Thanksgiving weekend unless significant storms are predicted prior to the holiday. Funding for the $36,000 yearly project is shared by the City of Carpinteria and homeowners on sandyland road, with residents shouldering about a $20,000 share. City of Carpinteria Director of Parks and recreation Matt roberts, who oversees the berm program, said that the massive sand mound takes around 40 hours of tractor work to construct. Depending on conditions, the effort could continue into next week. When completed, the berm will be 6-to-8 feet above street level, and permits allow for up to 13,000 cubic feet of sand to be utilized.

The berm program began in the early 1980s and has served as a model for other cities, roberts said. In its 30-plus years, only two incidents have caused major damage to structures along sandyland road, though numerous storms have flooded other coastal communities in that timeframe. roberts said that the berm gives the city about 24-hours of protection in strong storm conditions. If waves undercut and erode the structure, there is sufficient time to rebuild the barrier and avoid damage to beachfront properties. Beachgoers are asked to stay off the sand during tractor work this week and possibly next, but after construction, the berm will become another draw to city beaches. Children sled down its steep sides on boogie boards, and pedestrians wear down a path along its ridge. The berm will be taken down prior to the first spawning of grunion in March unless forecasts call for more severe storms.

registration for the one and only contest permitted each year at the Queen of the Coast opens today, Dec. 1. The 34th annual rincon Classic will take place when organizers deem conditions to be right for a weekend within the multi-week waiting window, which begins Jan. 14. registration priority is given to contestants who live in close proximity to Rincon. The first spaces are given to Carpinterians, then Santa Barbara, Goleta and Ventura residents. The contest includes a range of age divisions, along with men’s and women’s divisions and a pro division. To sign up or find out more, visit rinconclassic.com.

Parking lot trees spared the ax

BY LEA BOYD

Eleven tipuana trees in city parking lot 2—located behind businesses on the East side of the 900 block of Linden Ave.—were granted at least a temporary reprieve this week. Though their roots have caused uplift and cracking to the pavement throughout the lot on Cactus Lane, the City Council voted on Nov. 28 to try to salvage the healthy trees through alternatives to the phased removal recommended by the Tree Advisory Board. “They are valuable and should be treated that way—and treasured,” former City Councilmember Kathleen Reddington told the council at its Monday night meeting. She and two other members of the public spoke against the removal of the trees. Tipuanas planted throughout the downtown commercial district 25-plus years ago are now large-canopied trees well loved by many. Their roots, however, have caused dangerous pavement buckling that requires regular repair and ongoing expense. Several tipuanas are being replaced with ginkgo trees along Linden Avenue in a multi-year project to restore the badly damaged sidewalk. “I’ve actually witnessed people trip and fall in parking lot 2,” Councilman Brad Stein said. He added that the TAB is a difficult board to serve on due to the emotional attachment BOYD

The tipuana trees in city parking lot 2 have caused dangerous pavement buckling and were recommended for removal. City Councilmembers opted to try alternatives before cutting down the mature trees.

Tree talk

• Carpinteria has 2,600 street trees. • Between 2013 and 2016, 175 street trees were planted by the city. • The average cost to replace a tree is $2,500. • The city’s annual street tree maintenance budget is $135,000 and $30,000 for additional tree work.

people have to trees. Instead of removing the parking lot trees and repairing the pavement in batches as funding allows, Councilman Wade Nomura suggested the city begin by cutting shallow roots to determine if the trees could remain healthy with only a deeper root structure or if permeable pavement surrounding the trees could remedy the issue. His suggestion found traction with the rest of the council, which voted to remove several trees requested by residents in local neighborhoods while attempting to preserve the parking lot tipuanas. Also approved for removal were seven eucalyptus trees in the city’s Public Works yard in order to accommodate a stormwater bioswale detention basin.

Santa Monica intersection sparks crime concerns By Lea Boyd

At the Nov. 28 City Council meeting, Mayor Gregg Carty publicly acknowledged that something must be done to reduce the amount of criminal activity near the Santa Monica and Via Real intersection. High numbers of police incidents at the Motel 6 were noted by Lt. Mike Perkins of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department, and nearby residents characterized the area as a hotspot for criminal activity. “Something’s very wrong,” said Mike Wondolowski, a resident of the nearby Santa Monica Gardens neighborhood. He cited a Santa Barbara Independent article stating that in the last few years the average rate of law enforcement calls to the Motel 6 was 13 per month, compared to 7.5 per month over the few years prior. “That is almost doubling the number of calls,” he said. “That is deeply concerning.” Perkins attempted to dispel rumors that parolees or probationers are being

delivered to the Motel 6 with vouchers to stay there. He told the council that over the course of multiple phone calls, State Parole had iterated that it is not the agency’s practice to drop off parolees in Carpinteria. “Quite frankly even if they wanted to they couldn’t afford to do that right now. Same with probation. There’s no money in anyone’s budget to be housing parolees or probationers in hotels,” he said. He did say, however, that the low price of rooms at the two neighboring motels, along with easy access to the freeway and the proximity of 24-hour businesses, contribute to the area’s higher crime. “Our deputies know that that tends to draw problems,” he said. Judy Goodbody, who shares a property line with the Reef Motel, told the council that her home was burglarized this fall. The thief accessed the house through the only entrance Goodbody had left unsecured, a small bathroom window seven feet off the ground. “They broke the latch off my gate and cut the screen off my

window, and it was in broad daylight,” she said. “I don’t feel safe there anymore.” Perkins presented the council with a crime data analysis that suggested criminal activity had not spiked recently. The area around the intersection had crime rates consistent with similar intersections in Carpinteria and an intersection in Goleta. However, his study area only included a 100-yard radius surrounding the center of the intersection, which included Motel 6 but not the Reef Motel. In the last year, the Sheriff’s Department received 46 calls from Motel 6 and

recorded 90 deputy-initiated contacts there. Perkins said that rate of contact is about consistent with other lodging in that price range. Perkins also presented data indicating that burglary throughout Carpinteria had remained relatively consistent between 2011 and 2015. The year might end with a slight increase in residential burglaries overall in Carpinteria, but Perkins said the numbers were not alarming. Mayor Carty said that he wasn’t sure how to address the crime problem in the area but that “We need to work on it.”

Bridge work will be simultaneous

The Linden/Casitas Overpass Project that Caltrans began this fall will take place in seven phases, but construction on all five bridges will take place at the same time, Public Works Director Charlie Ebeling told the City Council at its Nov. 28 meeting. New bridges will be built next to the old ones, and traffic will be shifted as the old bridges are demolished and the new bridges get their final lanes. “If we did them sequentially, we’d be here for the next 20 years, so we are unfortunately biting the bullet and doing them all at once,” said Ebeling. Regular updates on the project are available at sbroads.com.

Red Kettle’s brewing Cvn

the summerland shore f r a n d av i s At long last Summerland’s newest and highly anticipated coffee house is open. Ever since the closure of Café Luna, with its good espresso and comfortable ambience, Summerlanders have been longing for another place to sit and sip a good cup of joe. Located next to the Bikini Factory and just across the street from Sandpiper Liquors, Red Kettle Coffee was almost 10 months coming to fruition. It’s owned and operated by Megan Tingstrom, daughter of Richard Tingstrom, proprietor of the popular Tinker’s Burgers in the same building. Red Kettle’s hours are weekdays from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. and weekends 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Megan says she’s always wanted to open her own business, and when her dad told her Summerland was in desperate need of a new coffee shop, she jumped at the chance. She left her Bay Area job in advertising and graphic design, and she and her boyfriend and their dog Cookie moved to Carpinteria to start the new venture. She describes her 905 coffee as a medium dark blend, and the Kettle Black is extra dark. I think I must have had the 805 and found it brisk and flavorful, a perfect morning wakeup brew. Teas and smoothies are also available, along with bagels, croissants, muffins and homemade cookies and donuts. Bright and inviting, the spanking new shop has a gallery feel with vibrantly colorful paintings by Jennifer Ringer decorating the walls. Megan expects to rotate artists every few months. Another great touch is the “Little Free Library,” a small bookcase holding books to read or take along. Hopefully, patrons will help to keep it stocked. Red Kettle plans a special grand opening celebration Saturday, Dec. 3 featuring

music by Rob Henderson and Tiffany Story. The well-liked pair are known from their regular gigs at Café Luna. Megan’s dad Richard (Tinker to everybody in town) will have his food trailer available to serve up freshly make sugar cinnamon donuts. Music is planned to start at 10 a.m. Megan says she’s always had a passion for coffee and tea. “It’s really a dream come true,” she says, “to talk and serve coffee with all the wonderful people in this community.”

Lookout Park improvements

Plans to switch things around in the tiny park are moving ahead. Sherman Hansen, Park Operations Manager for the south county, reports that plans to move the park host spot from the prime location at the east end of the park to the west end are perking along. The move, long advocated by Summerlanders, will free up a large formerly closed area for public use. The Parks District is seeking to have the host relocation plans finalized in December and plans to present the landscape architect’s design to the community at the January meeting of the Summerland Citizens Association. They are looking at a February timeline to begin the actual work. Hansen said they’re hoping to have everything in place and completed in time for the SCA to have its communitywide potluck picnic the second week of July. I’ve lost track of how many years Summerlanders and the SCA have been calling for this switch, but the transformation should be a cause for real celebration!

Big SCa holiday party at Summerland Winery

For the first time the annual Summerland Citizens Association holiday party will unfold at Summerland Winery. The celebration is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. and is open to residents and nonresidents alike. Ten dollars buys a glass of really good wine and a big bite to eat—either pizza or stomach filling appetizers (yet to be decided). A second glass of the winery’s superior wine can be purchased for $5. In addition, the winery is offering a free

The evening at the popular venue promises to be a roaring success. Plan to join the SCA that evening—your community voice heard by the county—a bargain at $20 a year. Thanks for the arrangements are due to SCA’s Suzy Cawthon who is a genie at networking for a good cause.

Phase III needs reconsideration

Franklin Trail is special to Carpinterians in that many locals are making this a daily hike. It is truly a Carpinteria community trail. Locals show love of the trail with memorial benches, water bowls for four-footed friends, seasonal decorations and hidden birdhouses. Opening phase III does not have to be a big or expensive deal, it can happen with local talent, this is what the Carpinteria trail users want. The lack of public access for the last 40 years has made the trail into a game preserve where bears, bobcats, deer, mountain lions, coyotes and birds large and small are seen on a regular basis. Creating phase III as a super highway of trails would be detrimental to this special habitat. Phase III is usable now since it was a well designed sustainable trail. Passing through old growth sections of manzanita and lush with shady ferns, it would be a crime to destroy this special habitat by over enlarging the trail as proposed by Santa Barbara Trails Council. Many areas of phase I have cut branches below the tread that are covered with dirt. This is a nightmare for trail maintenance and should not be repeated in Phase III. A better plan is to work on Phase III slowly over time, do the work carefully, improving areas as needed. Many sections of Phase I were done in a hurry and now it is difficult to repair. The soil covered wood will continue to subside, branches will rot out, and all you can do now is cascade more dirt on top of this mess. This is what happens when you use a trail tractor and have people who just want a quick fix. Phase III is now easily walkable, so why is it still posted as closed to public?

Time for Trump

CVN

Rupert letter (“We’re watching, Donald” Nov. 24, CVN). Your vicious, ignorant, false rant against our new President has to be addressed. Typical of left wing ideologues, you make unsubstantiated, personal attacks, statements absent of fact or evidence because you got kicked out of the sandbox. The bile you refer to must be in your own throat. My friends are like yours, voted the left wing socialists out of office because you failed. Were you watching Obama? Violent racial division, $20 trillion in debt, foreign policy that bolstered terrorism. The community organizer that created the worst murder rate in history in Chicago? Police murders, BLM lies. You are not the majority. You are the haters. Declare freedom of expression

Letters

Never in my lifetime have I seen a Presidential election where both candidates had a disapproval rating well north of 60 percent. When both Republicans and Democrats where asked for the first word that came to mind to describe Hillary Clinton, over 70 percent said, “Liar.” In my opinion, Hillary Clinton would have compounded the terrible damage that Barack Obama has done to this country. I am confident that in the first 100 days of the Trump Presidency, Obama’s legacy will be reduced to zero, which is something from which all Americans will benefit. Repealing and replacing Obamacare will save the country from the single payer system that was really the goal. Does anybody in their right mind really want the government controlling their health care? President Trump will keep the few things that are actually positive and present a plan that will significantly lower costs. I expect to hear, “if you like the plan and the doctor that you used to have, we will make that happen again.” Rather than an out of control spiral of skyrocketing insurance costs, we should see significant savings to all. Recently, a commentator for the Wall Street Journal made the following statement: “The Democrats favorite legislative body is the Supreme Court.” Trump will appoint justices who properly interpret the Constitution, not those who will legislate from the bench. Obama used Executive Orders to bypass Congress, actually bragging that he did so when he did not get his way. The courts have overturned a lot of these. Trump will get rid of the rest. The founding fathers created three branches of government for a reason. The Washington elite have long forgotten those who elected them. Special interests have far too much influence. Trump is a true outsider. Maybe he will really drain the swamp.

The founders of the USA were geniuses, but declaring independence and writing a constitution was as difficult as this year’s election, if not more so.

–– Robert Parham

and thought, action, as long as it is the same as yours. Otherwise you go nuts. Public tantrums because you didn’t get the socialist government that has failed in every country in the world. Democracy works as long as the result is what you demand. But calling Trump a coward, not a man, a demagogue, only exposes your insignificance and foolishness. So, Rupert, I implore you to watch. Watch as the rule of law, personal responsibility, defense of our country, keeping you and your children from terrorist attacks. Watch as this country is respected again, watch as we return to the values that the extreme left wing nuts have tried to destroy and we stopped. You have no idea of Trump’s bravery, and to demean anyone without evidence is still another example of your emotionally driven ignorance.

Allan Roscoe Carpinteria

Method to the madness

After the Presidential election I was imagining this: smiles on the faces of the Thorns and Sanderson Smith, a grimace on the face of Mike Rupert. The political season has been nothing short of high entertainment, including election night, which was an evening of drama, triumph and tragedy. The best theater! Thanks to everyone for the entertaining letters and discourse. In the protesting aftermath, I am alarmed at the ignorance of so much of our populace, especially millennials, about how our political system works. That extends to my own ninth-grade daughter who has not been educated on the basics by her teachers. Tragedy! By the way, I have tried, but I’m not sure a 15-year-old listens to Dad. For those who would complain about the process but not know how it works (or worse, never voted at all) I would offer that a reading of the U.S. Constitution and a bit of history might be in order.

The founders of the USA were geniuses, but declaring independence and writing a constitution was as difficult as this year’s election, if not more so. Every original colony considered itself a separate country, and combining them into one could be considered miraculous. A paramount issue was the probability that the large and influential cities and colonies would overwhelm the more rural areas and thus create an essential monarchy—just like the one they escaped from in England. So, in order to create a balance, the founders wisely created a House of Representatives based on population and a Senate based on each state having an equal representation of two votes each. The Electoral College falls into that pattern. Voting for the president is done by the states, with each person’s vote counted within their state, thereby ensuring the influence and power of each area of the country. Otherwise America would be dominated by the wishes of California and New York. Yikes! As Thanksgiving arrives I am very thankful for one special thing: the BushClinton monarchy of American politics is over—forever.

Influence of alcohol

On Nov. 10 at approximately 4:15 p.m. a Sheriff’s deputy responded to a residence on Eleanor Drive to investigate a report of two males fighting. As deputies arrived, one of them reported seeing two men—one 40 years old and the other 76—walking to the front of the residence. Their shirts were off, and the deputy noted that he saw abrasions with some bleeding on the men’s chests and arms, and that the younger man was yelling and appeared very upset. The man had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. The deputy also noted that he had had prior contacts with the younger man, and that the man had been violent when intoxicated. The two men denied having been in a fight and stated that they did not need medical attention. Based on the younger man’s symptoms of intoxication and the evidence of having been in an altercation, he was arrested for being “found in public under the influence of an alcoholic beverage to the degree he was unable to care for himself.”

One wild ride

On Nov. 11 at approximately 2:45 a.m. a Sheriff’s deputy was driving through the gas station on Casitas Pass Road and noticed a gold 1992 Ford Explorer at one of the gas pumps. The deputy ran a record check of the plates and found the vehicle’s registration had expired in June of this year although the plate had a valid 2017 sticker. Observing the vehicle leaving the gas station and driving southbound on Highway 101, the deputy followed in his patrol vehicle and initiated a traffic stop near the off ramp to Highway 150. The driver of the Ford Explorer “made no motion to yield,” and the deputy activated full emergency lights and siren, then advised dispatch that he was in an active pursuit. The Explorer continued

southbound on 101, weaving in and out of traffic at speeds up to 80 mph. The deputy noted multiple traffic violations in the course of the pursuit, which continued into Ventura. As the Explorer approached Main Street in Ventura, the deputy noted two white objects were thrown from vehicle. CHP took over the pursuit on Highway 101 near Main Street, and the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s deputy pulled back but remained in pursuit. The driver of the Explorer exited the highway at Seaward and sped down Victoria Avenue at speeds of 55-80 mph, running multiple red lights and making erratic turns before getting back on Highway 101 southbound. The owner of the vehicle was contacted by telephone in San Luis Obispo County during the course of the pursuit, and he stated that he’d recently sold the Explorer to a “tall, skinny male with a large tattoo on his neck.” He provided the name of the man, which the Santa Barbara deputy recognized from an arrest in January 2016. In that incident, the man was driving a stolen/carjacked vehicle that had been taken at gunpoint in Los Angeles. He had crashed the vehicle and fled, but was apprehended by a deputy and his canine, Aco. The man and his associates had been suspects in another armed robbery that evening as well. Also during the car chase, dispatch received a 911 call from a woman who said she was inside the Explorer. The woman was crying and the sound of sirens could be heard in the background of the call as she asked that law enforcement back off. After driving farther south on 101, the Explorer exited the highway at Vineyard with sparks coming from the underside of the vehicle. CHP officers attempted a Pursuit Intervention Technique, but were unsuccessful in their attempt. The

Explorer came to a stop against an orange tree on Santa Clara Avenue just east of Wright Road. Two female suspects were arrested as they came out of the driver’sside door, and a male suspect fled from the passenger side. One of the women said that the man had held her at knifepoint and ordered her to drive, switching places with her as they drove. The women said they did not know the man, and that he’d told them his name was Brennen. The deputy recognized one of the women from past contacts in Carpinteria for narcotics sales, and an identity check revealed that she had a warrant for her arrest. A one-hour, 30-minute search with a canine unit and helicopter failed to apprehend the male suspect, and shortly after the pursuit had ended, CHP reported a vehicle being stolen in the area. Not having violated any laws, the other woman was released and given a ride back to Carpinteria. As the woman with the arrest warrant was being booked into Santa Barbara County Jail, deputies found heroin in her bra and a second packet of heroin against her stomach. In addition to having the warrant, the woman was charged with bringing a controlled substance into a custodial facility.

Beloved mailman hangs up his bag

By Jay Bushey

other dog that, for 30 minutes, chased me around the neighborhood. I ended up hiding on the roof of the owner’s car until someone was finally able to call the dog off me.” Dog attacks aside, Speicher believes that postal work is more difficult than people might think. “You have to keep track of so many letters, magazines, packages, locations and names,” he explained. “It gets easier once you learn the areas, but it’s complicated.” Still, Speicher said that it’s a great job for anyone who wants a career and is willing to tough it out. “It’s been a good ride, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.” The beginning of Speicher’s retirement coincides with the beginning of the Christmas season. “From the end of No-

vember through December, it’s hard work and long hours.” Despite this, Speicher said that the Christmas season was his favorite time of year to work. “People are just very happy and welcoming.” Speicher believes that his career gave him a unique look into the Carpinteria community. “I met mayors, city council members and people who have been part of the community for over 50 years. I think I have a better sense of Carpinteria’s history than most people here, even though I haven’t been to the town museum yet—I should really be ashamed of that!” Although Speicher looks forward to retirement, he will remember his career fondly. “It’s the people that I’ll miss the most, both those in the office as well as

the people on the street,” he explained. He plans to spend some time traveling, but says that Carpinteria has become his home. “When I started my career with the US Postal Service, I had never been to Carp before. Now I’m never gonna leave!” Speicher began his retirement lastFriday at the age of 56 with good health and a comfortable pension. His mother, Margot, is very proud of him for achieving his goal of retiring at such a young age and says that Speicher’s father, who passed away a few years ago, would be beaming now too. “He and his father were a lot alike—able to make friends easily, big flirts and big-hearted. Spike has earned his spot on the beach!” she said.

Kurt “Spike” Speicher’s friendly face won’t be seen delivering mail around town anymore. After 27 years of delivering mail in Carpinteria, Kurt Speicher—better known as “Spike”—is retiring. Speicher began working as a mailman in January of 1989 following six years of military service. “I had a buddy in the military who got out a little while before I did. He’d just gotten a job with the Postal Service and kept telling me that I should really check it out.” Speicher took his friend’s advice and never looked back. “I’ve always been career oriented, so I wanted to stick with it.” Working in the Concha Loma neighborhood for almost three decades, Speicher got to know several generations of Carpinterians. “There are kids I met along my route when I first started who are all grown up now and have children of their own,” Speicher said affectionately. “For a big tough guy, I’m all squishy on the inside.” Besides the people along his route, Speicher has also met plenty of dogs. “There was a dog that, for years, would follow me from house to house when I delivered mail on his street.” He paused and laughed a bit. “Then there was an-

One little-known fact: Wright is a past commandeer of the U.S. Submarine Veterans for Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Here’s why he’s become so involved in the life of Carpinteria. Q: How did you get into volunteering? A: We came to Carpinteria to start the business a little over 15 years ago, and I’ve volunteered since the very beginning. Some of the first people to come into the brewery were the head of the Chamber and someone from Rotary, and before I knew it, I was involved in both those groups and the Lutheran Church. We have also donated beer for local events from the beginning. I provide beer for dozens of events, including the Chamber’s annual awards banquet and fundraisers for the Boys & Girls Club, Girls Inc. and the Lou Grant Parent-Child Workshop.

A: I was the president of the Rotary Club of Carpinteria, after going up through the ranks and serving on many committees. We’re involved in lots of different activities such as raising funds for our Rotary Foundation at the Avocado Festival, painting the gym at the Boys & Girls Club and sponsoring the talent show at the Plaza Playhouse Theater. Rotary also has international projects. Over a period of five or six years, we worked with residents of rural Panama to build three libraries in that country. They were the first public libraries in Panama. Q: In what ways do you serve the Chamber? A: I was the president for two years, and I’m still on the executive board. The Chamber is the voice of business in town, but there are really two parts—the business part and the community part. We love our community and want what’s best for it. For example, we’ve often held public forums for candidates running for office, and we hold forums on subjects of public interest like the Highway 101 Linden & Casitas Pass Project. Q: You volunteer in the educational arena, especially for a group called THRIVE. Please describe what you do. A: THRIVE is national program that came to Carp through the school district—the first directors were district employees, with members representing every aspect of the community. Now the nonprofit Carpinteria Children’s Project has taken

the lead, but the core mission has stayed the same: improving kids’ lives from the cradle through college. I’m chairman of THRIVE’s executive committee, whose activities include working as community advisors to CCP. There are so many areas to deal with, and early on I thought early childhood education was one of the most important because it provides preschool children with the knowledge and social skills they need to be successful in school. I sat down with Maria Fisk (director of CCP) and directors of the preschools in town. Someone asked how many kids are in preschool versus daycare in Carpinteria. Our hope is that we can start giving educational materials to daycare providers so their youngsters will be more prepared for school.

Q: You volunteer for KARLSSOn other groups as well. Paul Wright knows how to have fun while giving What kinds of activities back to the community. do you do? A: I was involved in Carpinteria First, which was a city project to get families interested in visiting and shopping in our downtown. It developed into First Friday, which sponsors great events every first Friday of the year. I’m also a past commandeer of the submarine veterans group in this area. There’s a veterans’ home in Ventura, and some of us got together and asked what we could do. At Christmas we bring clothing, presents, pies and cakes. Also, some of our members put together a mobile cart with items like toiletries and newspapers. We try to make sure

everyone has toothbrushes, combs—everything they need from the store. Q: Why do you think it’s important to volunteer? A: We all agree Carpinteria is a great place to live. I want to support that, maintain the quality and, what the heck, make it better. Things change, and our responsibility is to make sure things change for the better. We need to keep Carpinteria a great place for locals and visitors.

TIS THE SEASON Whether we like it or not, the holidays are here. For some, that’s a groanworthy realization that comes with to-do lists by the dozens. For others, it evokes a flutter of joyful anticipation. For most of us, some mash up of the two gets served with a side of nostalgia. These feelings, of course, are a product of where we are now and where we’ve been over holiday seasons of yore. This year, Coastal View News brings you snapshots of celebrations long past. These are your friends, neighbors, co-workers and community leaders. Do you know their faces with decades rewound? Stay tuned for more next week.

Warrior hoops program turns new page

BY ALONZO OROZCO

A new era has begun for the basketball program at Carpinteria High School. Long time basketball coaches Johnny Ward and Dan Mercer of the boys and girls teams respectively have moved on, and two new-butfamiliar faces have since taken their posts.

Boys basketball

Assistant Athletic Director, Softball Coach and Assistant Football Coach Henry Gonzales will add another task to his already busy schedule, having taken on the interim job of coaching the boys basketball team. Earlier in the year, CHS announced the hiring of Jon Wyers as the new coach, but unable to secure fulltime work in his field, Wyers ended up taking a position in Santa Maria with St. Joseph’s. Gone from last year’s second-place team are a trio of seniors, Brandon Jordan, Jax Montgomery and Rayshaun Moore, who led the Warriors to a secondplace finish in the Tri-Valley League and the Fillmore Tournament Championship. Nonetheless, Gonzales likes what he sees in this year’s team. “I think every year new guys always step up,” said Gonzales. “We can end up being a different type of team, but still a very successful team,” added the veteran coach who has worked at the school for nearly 35 years. Carpinteria will depend on the play of junior Terrell Richardson, along with returning seniors Eli Correa, Mikey Garibay and Travis Campbell. Six-foot, 2-inch junior forward Dominic Sturdivan and another senior, four-year player, Michael Vazquez should also make an impact. “St. Bonny’s is probably always right there at the top,” said Gonzales of one of the teams favored to win league. Santa Clara and Bishop Diego also look to be among the others that could challenge for the title. The Warriors open up against Providence of Santa Barbara at home this Monday, Dec. 5. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.

Monique Sanchez extends her wing to cut short a shot by Fillmore.

Girls basketball

Having spent the last five years as either an assistant to long-time coach Dan Mercer and/or as the JV coach, Amy Bryant will step in as the girls varsity coach. Bryant inherits 10 returning players, nine of them seniors. But this year the Warrior schedule looks particularly tough after making the playoffs last year and moving up a league from the Frontier to the TriValley. “We’re facing some pretty tough competition this year, so I’m hoping to get the girls ready for the season,” said Bryant. Among Carpinteria’s returning players is four-year varsity, senior guard Tori Kelley. “I’m trying to get her shooting more,” explained Bryant. Junior Kayana Diaz figures also to contribute, along with seniors Alondra Campuzano, Annalisa De Alba and Harmony Reed, who should give the Warriors a strong presence on the boards. St. Bonaventure and Foothill Tech are the likely two favorites to win league, which includes other formidable foes La Reina, Santa Clara and Santa Paula. “I think you’ll sees some new offenses,” said Bryant. “Teaching them new offense, getting them excited for the season and kind of getting them back in basketball shape is our goal,” added the new coach, who will be joined by longtime assistant coach Weldon Nomura. The other end of the court will be Bryant’s big focus. “I’m hoping to get the girls to play some really good defense. My emphasis in our (recent) scrimmage was to get them to talk–– people that talk tend to succeed,” said Bryant. The Warriors will play in the Bishop Diego/Nordhoff Tourney at Bishop Diego in Santa Barbara on Thursday, Dec. 8, with the tipoff time still to be determined.

prep News short stops Boys soccer

Carpinteria High School

November 22 - The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team played its season opener on the road at Santa Ynez, coming away with a 1-1 tie. The offense, led by junior luis garcia, scored in the 10th minute when Garcia’s shot from outside the 18, deflected by Pirate defenders, landed on maclaine Clayton’s right foot. Clayton tucked the ball into the lower right-hand corner for a 1-0 Warrior lead. Carpinteria possessed the ball much of the game and had another opportunity for a goal when the Santa Ynez goalkeeper turned away senior Jonathon basave’s shot in a one-onone situation. As the clock wound down with the Warriors holding onto a 1-0 lead, the Pirates had one last opportunity in stoppage time with seconds left and took full advantage when a deflected shot off a corner kick got past goalkeeper Christian estrada. Up until then, Estrada had a clean sheet with four recorded saves. “Starters gabriel barajas, Vincent gonzalez and abel gutierrez to name a few, played up to their expectations and showed what they are capable of creating when playing at a high level,” said Carpinteria coach Leo Quintero.

Girls soccer

November 29 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team dropped a nonleague match to Channel Islands, 5-3. After conceding the first goal, the Warriors came back when erika estrada followed in a shot, scoring her first high school goal. After a few defensive lapses, Carpinteria fell behind 3-1, but evened the score after goals from alejandra alvarez and elizabeth estrada. “Our keeper, laura Valdez, was outstanding,” said Warrior coach Charles Bryant. “We hung around in this one, but gave up a late goal with about 10 minutes to go that broke the 3-3 tie and then gave up a last second goal after pushing a few players forward,” added Bryant.

Letters to Santa Hey, Kids!

Photos by Robin KaRlsson

Bob Larkin plucks the banjo as shoppers peruse the wares at the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History’s Holiday Faire.

It’s the time of year when Santa Claus is making his list and checking it twice. The Coastal View editors heard from Santa’s most reliable helper that he and Mrs. Claus will be reading the Coastal View for letters before stocking the sleigh on Christmas Eve. So any of you good girls and boys who want Santa to read your letters should send them here for publication in the Dec. 22 issue.

Letters must be under 75 words and must include the writer’s full name and age. Letters to Santa may be mailed or dropped off at 4856 Carpinteria Ave. or emailed to news@coastalview.com.

Letters must be received by Monday, Dec. 18 in order to make the paper.

Judy Flum brought her case of the blues—a diverse array of fused glassware—to the Saturday faire.

Before guacamole records were king

What’s a Carpinteria history column without a periodic mention of La Vina Grande, the town’s pride and joy in the late 1800s and early 1900s? Planted in 1842, the grapevine’s base circumference measured to be 9 feet, 9 inches in 1906. At that point, a trellis supported a quarter acre of viney canopy. Carpinteria Valley MuseuM of History in 1915, the grapevine was moved to the current site of Aliso school. Preserved there as a tourist attraction for several years, the vine was later relocated to the fish Camp—now Carpinteria State Beach—for visitors to ogle.

Scouts open tree lot

Carpinteria’s Scouts have a long tradition of selling Christmas trees in town. Last Saturday, the organization received two semi-truck loads of prime quality Christmas trees to stock their lot on the corner of Carpinteria and Holly Avenues. The tree lot is the Boy Scouts’ biggest fundraiser of the year, and it benefits all the boys in the program. According to Scout leader John Thomas, “Carpinteria’s Pack 50 (Cub Scouts) and Boy Scouts from both Troops 50 & 147 all recognize that doing sales at the Christmas tree lot reinforces a tried and true fact of life: You have to work hard to get ahead. But, at Scouts, we tend to sprinkle hard work with loads of fun!” Christmas tree lot hours are Monday through Thursday from 3 to 8:30 p.m., Friday from noon to 8:30 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Trees range from 2-feet to 12-feet.

Hundreds of evergreens were unloaded last Saturday morning by this hale and hearty crew.

THE BOOK NOOK Carpinteria Library recommends

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California his own experience, N. Scott Momaday weaves together a living story of a people. “The Way to Rainy Mountain” echoes with a language the author doesn’t speak, with the voices of family members, and with unanswered questions. This book is a refusal to be erased, held fast by the power of Momaday’s imagination, his ability “to concentrate his mind on the remembered earth,” to see himself in a reflected world. Momaday preserves oral tradition in a manner that resists the reality of fixing it. An awareness of what is lost informs what is at stake and must be shared to survive. ––Giti White, volunteer, Friends of the Library Used Bookstore, 5103 Carpinteria Ave.

“Into the Savage Country” by Shannon Burke

In 1826, the American West is still wilderness, and the heretofore-aimless William Wyeth is set to prove his worth to both his doubting father and himself. Signing onto a fur-trapping outfit, he spends a season in the mountains as a trapper and forms deep friendships with his companions, learning to live with deprivations and danger on the trail. He comes across native encampments, and hostile British outposts, joins massive buffalo hunts, gets himself shot and also finds time for romance. The second expedition, into Crow lands, confronts a British brigade. Borders are vague and the expansionist Brits, not the natives, are the enemy. The trappers harvest a record number of pelts, but safe passage back is far from assured. Burke guides the reader through nerve-wracking episodes, including two involving bears. This historical novel gives life-like accounts of white Americans pushing into the West, and the last free-wheeling years of the fur trade. ––Tara O’Reilly, Supervising Librarian, Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave.

Disappointed in life’s twists, A.J. Fikry can barely tolerate his lonely existence as a bookstore owner. His wife is dead. Even his books fail to provide escape. When his cherished collection of Poe poems are stolen, it may push him into an irreversible funk. The arrival of a mysterious package, however, offers Fikry the chance to turn the page on his dreary days. The Carpinteria Library Book Club’s December novel, “The Storied Life of A.J.

How do you sell 100 million copies of a book? CVN

THE WRITE PRACTICE JOE BUNTING It’s an interesting question, right? One all writers would love to know the answer to. Of course, to sell 100 million copies of any book, you have to have marketing, PR, a sales team and so on. But even the best team of marketing geniuses couldn’t make a bad book sell 100 million copies. To sell 100 million copies of a book, you have to start with a really amazing book. Writing a great book isn’t enough, though. I found that there are only nine books that have sold over 100 million copies (not including religious, ideological, philosophical, or political books), and looking over them, I found that they have three criteria in common. They’re not quite rules, because not all nine books follow them. In fact, only one of the three criteria is found in all nine of the books. However, if you want to sell a lot of copies of your books, you should consider paying attention to each one of them. But first, what are the best-selling books of all time? Here they are in order. “Don Quixote” by Miguel de Cervantes “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens “The Alchemist” by Paolo Coelho “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” by J.K. Rowling “The Hobbit” by J. R. R. Tolkien “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie “Dream of the Red Chamber” by Cao Xueqin “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll Do any surprise you?

3 guidelines to write a book that can sell 100 million copies

“The Way to Rainy Mountain” by N. Scott Momaday

For those who feel that our society is in need of a reminder of how to respect and protect what we hold most dear, the stories of “The Way to Rainy Mountain” are a wonderful place to start. Drawing on Kiowa myths and oral narrative, family history, western historical accounts and

How do you write a bestseller—no, a mega-bestseller? What do these nine books have in common? As I looked closer at the nine books on the list of top bestsellers, I realized there are three criteria they have in common:

“Always good for an armload. Kids books, too!” 5103 Carpinteria Avenue (Next to the Carpinteria Library) Donations welcomed.

1. Write a coming of age story

Up to seven of these nine books are coming of age stories (depending on how you interpret them). Coming of age stories are almost always stories about a hero going from innocence to experience. A few other features of the genre: It usually begins with a loss (often the death of parents). The protagonist gets to maturity and acceptance from society but only after going through a lot of conflict. There is often some kind of mentor to help guide the protagonist on his journey.

2. Set your story in two worlds

This was the most surprising and important realization I had as I researched this list. Here’s why: Nine of nine novels have two different worlds. This is most apparent in Alice in Wonderland, which invented a whole vocabulary to talk about alternate dimensions. Going “down the rabbit hole” has become cliché for entering a second world, and it all started with Lewis Carroll. Many of the others have equally obvious second worlds and some of the others are less obvious, though still present. Don Quixote, for example, lives in a fantasy world of his own imagination, even as the rest of the characters live in the real world. Great books have a high contrast between two different worlds. Moreover, if you look at the books further down the list of top-selling books of all time, you’ll see that a huge majority of them have the same contrast.

3. Use a whimsical tone

Six of nine of the best-selling books of all time have a whimsical tone. And it makes sense, right? Because books that take themselves too seriously exclude people. Serious books are important, just as books for adults are important. However, if you want to sell a lot of copies, you’ll be much more successful if you don’t take yourself too seriously.

It’s not about selling 100 million copies

Yeah, it would be nice to sell 100 million copies of your book. Of course it would. The point isn’t to sell 100 million copies, though. It’s to write a book that brings meaning to the lives of your readers. And if I’ve learned anything from studying these nine books, it’s that these three guidelines will help you write a book that connects with readers. Now, go get writing!

PRACTICE

Begin a story about two worlds. Is one full of magic and the other mundane and everyday? Is one on Earth and the other on another planet? Is one in North America and the other in Asia? Is one in someone’s mind and the other the reality around them? Take 30 minutes to write. Then, share your world-hopping story with a writing friend. You can also share in our online community here: thewritepractice.com/ sell-100-million-book. Happy writing!
