Brooke Barnett, daughter of May and Bryan Barnett, stars as Clara in this weekend’s “The Nutcracker” performance by Curtis Studio of Dance.
With sunsets this striking, it’s hard to resist planting them on the cover of Coastal View News. Winter ﬁnds the sun dipping into the Paciﬁc, making local beaches a hot spot for watching the sky go sherbet-colored and straining for a glimpse at the elusive green ﬂash. All of these activities are even better from the top of a stand up paddleboard.
Barnett stars in City responds to homeless issue Nutcracker ballet Though it is laborious to BY LEA BOYD
Christmas classic “The Nutcracker” will be brought to life at Carpinteria Middle School this Friday and Saturday, and Brooke Barnett, a ballerina since before she could pronounce the word, will dance the starring role of Clara. “Ever since I was a little girl I’ve wanted to be Clara,” Barnett said. She has been dancing at Curtis Studio of Dance since she was 3, and 12 years later she got her wish. “I was really excited. I couldn’t believe it. I said, ‘Oh my God! I’m ﬁnally Clara.’” Over the years, she has progressed through the roles from Mouse to Snow Princess, and now she’ll hardly leave the stage. Her favorite dance is when Clara is surrounded by the 5- and 6-year-old snow princesses all around her. “I can’t wait to perform in front of everyone,” she said. The Carpinteria Christmas staple will show on Friday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Dec. 19, at 1 p.m. This year’s performance showcases the talented Curtis Studio dancers and three Carpinteria High School boys in addition to special guest dancers Gary Franco and Jean Michelle Sayeg. Franco, who dances the part of Cavalier, was a star of stage and screen including in “The Producers,” and Sayeg, the Sugar Plum Fairy, was the recipient of the Music Center Spotlight Award.
Carpinteria is on track to end chronic homelessness in the next two years, Chuck Flacks, Executive Director of Central Coast Collaborative on Homelessness (C3H), told the Carpinteria City Council at its Dec. 14 meeting. The city, with partners like C3H, has ramped up efforts to address the homeless issue in Carpinteria over the last year and is moving closer to ﬁnding housing for its homeless population, which at last count was 18 individuals. “Clearly there’s a commitment here to making this happen,” Flacks said. Establishing a connection with homeless individuals, many of whom suffer from mental health, drug and alcohol problems, and then successfully moving them into longterm housing is “painstaking and difﬁcult,” Flacks said. Analyses show that the cost of homelessness is much higher than the cost of placing people in housing. Jail stays and hospital visits account for most of the $30,000 to $50,000 annual expense for each person living on the streets. “It’s much more efﬁcient to house homeless people,” said City Manager Dave Durﬂinger. Point in Time counts of the Santa Barbara County homeless population are conducted every two years. Carpinteria’s count included 15 individuals in 2011, 10 in 2013 and 18 in 2015. Though the data doesn’t indicate signiﬁcant growth in the population, the city recently
establish connections with members of the homeless community, that effort is a critical step in getting individuals housed.
has documented more public health and safety issues and public complaints and concerns for the homeless. In response, a collaborative push toward a solution has been made. The Carpinteria Coordination Committee was established with C3H, and interagency meetings are held monthly to pool information and resources from Carpinteria State Beach, CarpinteriaSummerland Fire Protection District, the Sheriff’s Department, Public Works and Code Enforcement, among others.

Carpinteria Bird Count takes place Saturday
Binoculars and long lenses will be dusted off this weekend for the annual Carpinteria Christmas Bird Count. Local data collected on Saturday, Dec. 19 will be incorporated into the international bird count coordinated by the Audubon Society. Carpinteria Bird Count organizers Rob Denholtz and Andrea Adams Morden will be assigning locales for birders and providing lists. The window for the count opens at midnight and closes 24 hours later. Participants are tasked with keeping a tally for each species located. The annual event often turns up rare birds such as the prairie warbler and Harris’ sparrow. Adams Morden said that some dedicated birders put in a full day and continue into the darkness, while others simply monitor who visits their backyard feeders. Anyone interested in getting involved should call Adams Morden at 684-8077.
Thursday trash collection intact over holidays

New medicine dropbox hits Carpinteria station New drop boxes in the Operation Medicine Cabinet program have been installed at eight sheriff ’s stations including in Carpinteria at 5775 Carpinteria Ave. The boxes have been in operation for several years and the new collection kiosks have been redesigned to safely accept unneeded and expired medication. Medications that are deposited in OMC kiosks should be kept in their original packaging if possible. Any loose pills or powders must be sealed within a Ziploc bag prior to being deposited. No needles or other sharp objects should be placed in the boxes. Excess medications in the home can pose risks for drug abuse and accidental ingestion.

Case of the vanishing ornaments
When it came time last weekend to get down the Christmas decorations from the high shelf in the garage, alas, the box of tree ornaments (most treasured item in the garage except my 1999 Ford Taurus station wagon) was missing. All year long the big white and green box, marked “tree ornaments,” was visible there. Some of its contents were almost 100 years old (like me) and each one had a special memory for me. They won’t mean as much to whoever unwraps the carefully packed items. There would be no question asked if someone would return my old-friend box of personal treasures.

Sheriff warns of door-todoor scams
An increased number of scams involving door-to-door solicitors have been reported to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office this winter. According to a press release, this time of year, scammers wish to take advantage of people in the giving spirit. “Be on the lookout for people selling magazine subscriptions as part of a contest or a charity. There is also a trend of people selling care packages to send to deployed military service members,” stated the press release. On Dec. 7, a Ventura man claiming to be part of a nonprofit called Care Package Campaign was cited for unlawful solicitation in the Vandenberg Village area. Further investigation revealed that Care Package Campaign is a for-profit operation. Illicit solicitors commonly are young people with laminated sales charts indicating prize levels, sometimes from out of state and who may be pushy to the point of scheming to find a way into the home by asking for water or to use a telephone. The sheriff’s office recommends asking any solicitor that makes a resident uncomfortable to immediately leave the property. DOBBINS

Moreno marks 45 years at Hollandia Produce
Joyce Donaldson, left, and Karen Graf of Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce receive a proclamation from Mayor Gregg Carty recognizing January as Carpinteria Business Month.
This year’s Hollandia Produce annual holiday gathering doubled as a celebration of employee Lucila Moreno, who has dedicated 45 years to the company. She received a certificate and monetary gift. “When you see Lucila, you are always met with a smile. It is a joy to see her throughout your workday; she is a shining example of our values here at Hollandia,” said Emily McNelly, chief administrative officer for Hollandia Produce. Moreno was hired by company founder Art Overgaag in 1970 at what was then Hollandia Flowers. “I remember the day I started. Art’s wife Magda and I were much younger looking, and their kids were practically babies,” Moreno mused. “I don’t know where the time has gone, but I know I don’t look as young anymore.” Moreno’s teenage children were also employed part time by Hollandia before they went to college. Moreno has witnessed extraordinary changes and has held varying roles throughout the company’s historical transitions. Since 1970, she has worked in many facets of Hollandia’s production, ranging from sowing plants and harvesting to her current role of product packing in one Hollandia’s lettuce greenhouses.

Though it is laborious to establish connections with members of the homeless community, that effort is a critical step in getting individuals housed. Flacks said that work to understand homeless people on a case-by-case basis on Santa Barbara’s lower Milpas Street and downtown has been highly successful. Landlord outreach and continued support will also be needed to effectively place people in longterm housing.
No surprises in budget update
“This is kind of a no news is good news report,” said Administrative Services Director John Thornberry when he provided the city council with a mid-year update on the city budget. As expected with the improved economy, revenues are up compared to last year. The city’s general fund, which had a $2 million balance at the close of the last fiscal year, will take a $500,000 hit this year to help fund a major pavement maintenance project. According to a staff report, “It will be critical for revenue to continue to improve in order to keep up
with rising costs and for the City to be creative in leveraging the revenues it has in order to continue to deliver the services and programs expected by the community.”
City re-ups contract for County mental health services
The city council unanimously approved a $6,645 three-year contract with the County of Santa Barbara for Mental Health Mobile Crisis Services, which are available around the clock 365 days a year. Services include psychiatric crisis intervention and stabilization and emergency mental health evaluations. Between January and November, the county provided services to 414 Carpinteria residents. Two-thirds of these individuals received mental health services, and the other third were served in alcohol or drug programs. Among those receiving services, 158 were age 15 or under, 101 were age 16 to 25, 102 were 26 to 64, and 17 were 65 and over.

Data supports the saying it takes a village MARIA FISK, PhD Director of the Carpinteria Children’s Project “It takes a village to raise a child.” Generally attributed as an African proverb, the adage, according to Wikipedia, could have evolved from a regional saying that translates to “a child does not grow up only in a single home” or another that advises that a child’s upbringing belongs to the community. No matter what its roots are, it serves as shorthand for current social science and health research. Indeed, it does take committed villagers to raise children well. “It takes a village to raise a child” is a guiding principle in my life and an unofficial slogan of the Carpinteria Children’s Project. “Children are only as strong as the families in which they live, and families are only as strong as the communities in which they reside. Therefore to truly affect the child, we must address the surrounding factors that influence a child’s ability to thrive.” These wise words were written by Carpinterian Michelle Robertson. Our beautiful parks, healthy schools, and organizations including service clubs, the Boys & Girls Club, Girls Inc. and the Carpinteria Children’s Project are undoubtedly part of the village that promotes our children’s ability to thrive. These community resources both support children directly and allow parents to work, learn, and take care of themselves so they can be strong families. It takes a village to raise a child and to keep the adults healthy and flourishing. We villagers are more interconnected than we may realize. The people around us— and not just those we see daily—have an influence on us, and we have an influence on them. Two researchers, Nicholas

It takes a village to raise a child and to keep the adults healthy and flourishing. We villagers are more interconnected than we may realize.
Christakis and James Fowler, analyzed data that had been collected on folks in Framingham, Mass., for a study of risk factors for heart disease. Since the original researchers wanted to track study participants for years, they asked participants to list their close social connections, the family members and friends who would know where they would be in the future. Christakis and Fowler used that data about social connections and the health data and found some pretty interesting patterns. If a participant became obese, his or her close friends and family were 57 percent more likely to also become obese. Even more surprising, a participant was 20 percent more likely to become obese if the friends of a friend became obese— even if the connecting friend didn’t gain weight. Whoa. Researchers found that smoking, drinking, happiness and loneliness appeared to spread across social groups in similar ways. For example, results suggest that if your friend takes up smoking, you are 36 percent more likely to take up smoking yourself. The effects stretched three links before they faded out; in other words, my behavior could be influenced by my sister’s friend’s friend. And I have to think twice to remember my sister’s friend’s name! “Even as we are being influenced by others, we can influence others. And therefore the importance of taking actions that are beneficial to others is heightened,” Christakis was quoted as saying in a New York Times Magazine article. Let’s continue to do and celebrate the incredible work our village does to support children and adults while thinking in new ways about what we as individuals can do to strengthen our families and community. We know that simple actions we take make a difference. The person you share a smile with is likely to pass on that smile to their connections. I bet that child you know would brighten a bit if you asked her to tell you something she’s learned at school or what she is looking forward to doing over winter break. We are all her village—we are all villagers together—and we all deserve to be proud that she is thriving!

Patricia Dillon Bliss 8/17/1945 - 12/3/2015
Patricia Dillon Bliss died peacefully at home on Dec. 3, 2015. She was born Aug. 17, 1945 in Sioux City, Iowa, the first child of Ilene Tanner and Francis Bernard Dillon. Patty grew up in Sacramento, Calif. and attended Holy Spirit School and McClatchy High School. She attended UCSB and was a member of the Alpha Phi Sorority, where she began her life-long passion for volunteerism. Patty was a devoted full-time community volunteer who helped people in need through an impressive list of local non-profits: the Junior League of Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Montecito Association, Planned Parenthood, Family Service Agency, Santa Barbara Foundation, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics and The Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara. In 1996, Patty was named Woman of the Year, and in 2004 Health Care Hero. Patty will be sorely missed by her family and many friends. She proved herself a fierce survivor in her battles this year addressing them with a bravery, humor and graciousness that was admired by all.

My best Christmas present ever a monthly muse
MELINDA WITTWER Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, it is hard not to think about presents at this time of year. Fir trees, elves, Santas, decorations, carols, lights and a multitude of ads for everything from diamonds to toys to electronic gizmos to underwear are assembled for our perusal. But amongst all this surplus of extravaganza, I look back at the one present that always makes me feel loved and safe—my best Christmas present ever. During the fall of 1959 when I was 10, my mother had breast cancer. I only found out about her disease the day before she went into the hospital for a radical mastectomy. Several of my aunts had come to be with my brother and me and my dad and to offer moral support for my mom. Since “breast” was a forbidden word and “cancer” a scary word and no one was explaining much of anything, I was confused and afraid. I remember my aunts whispering to each other. I remember adding the words cancerous and benign to my vocabulary. Since no one I loved had ever even been to the hospital before much less had an operation, I was unconvinced there was nothing to worry about—especially when I saw my dad crying. My dad didn’t even get shots for pain when he went to the dentist, so to see him with tears in his eyes really rattled me. In spite of all my efforts, I could not stop thinking about the possibility of my mother’s death. My mom’s operation was completed, but then she developed a blood clot in her lungs that extended her hospital stay and threatened her life. My memory of the next few months is rather blurred. My favorite aunt stayed with us to help take care of my mom. I heard my mom’s screams as my aunt changed the bandages. I saw my mom return from radiation treatments sick and drained of
strength. I saw my dad frustrated by what he could not change, and I saw and felt my mom’s fear. Now my dad had lived through the Great Depression and was not known as a big spender, but he did like to give special presents at Christmas. It was like the holidays gave him permission to spoil the ones he loved—even if it was just once a year. For him it was never about what he got, it was all about ﬁnding something special for us, especially for my mom, whom he adored. The year my mom was so sick certainly was not promising to be a great holiday time, but things are not always as they seem. Sometime in mid December, a big truck pulled up in front of our house and parked. A burly man marched up to our door and knocked. As my mom was still in her robe, since she only dressed on the days she had doctor’s visits, I was the one ordered to answer the door. The man from the truck had a Magnavox console stereo to deliver. My mother told him it must be a mistake. He handed her some papers and then my dad walked in. He opened the door wide and told the man where to put our new stereo with its burnished wood cabinet, a turntable and an AM/FM radio. My mom was speechless—hard to believe. Then she gave my dad the “look” and said, “I thought we agreed we couldn’t afford this because of all my medical bills.” My dad just grinned and told her not to worry about it. My mom didn’t smile. Her eyes filled, but she quickly wiped away any tears. He put his arm around her as she gently leaned against him for support. My dad had found a way to make my mom better, at least for a while. So why was this my best Christmas present ever since it wasn’t even for me? Well, we did get to choose several LP records to play on our new “toy.” But more than anything physical, this present made me feel safe—as if all would now be well with my mom, with my dad and with my family. It was a gift given for all the right reasons. Melinda Wittwer ﬁrst moved to Carpinteria in 1972 and taught mostly junior high students in Oxnard during her 25-year career. Now retired, she enjoys pottery, writing, books and travel.

SUBMITTED BY CARPINTERIA SANITARY DISTRICT In the wastewater business, we know we are doing a good job when our customers can ﬂush their toilets, bathe their kids and do their laundry without ever having to think about what happens downstream. Here at the Carpinteria Sanitary District we have a staff of professionals working hard each and every day to make sure that sewage collection, treatment and disposal is reliable and effective around the clock. Wastewater is like the mail, as Newman from Seinfeld would say, it never stops. But our crews are on call 24/7, protecting the environment and public health on your behalf. However, like the proverb that says, “It takes a village to raise a child,” it also takes a village to keep the community wastewater system in tip-top shape. Here are ﬁve things that you can do in 2016 to help protect water quality and keep our beaches clean and pristine: 1. Properly dispose of household hazardous waste. Certain chemicals and household products can damage sewer pipelines or threaten the health and safety of District staff members. Household hazardous wastes can also impact the biologic treatment processes at the treatment plant. Motor oil, paint and antifreeze can be taken to the City of Carpinteria ABOP Center on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. Take any other hazardous materials or chemicals to the Community Hazardous Waste Collection Center located at UCSB, open each weekend throughout the year. Both facilities provide safe, proper disposal of these materials at no cost to local residents. 2. Don’t ﬂush unused medicines down the drain. The wastewater treatment facility is not designed to remove complex pharmaceutical compounds. Some products can pass through the treatment process and enter the environment. Unused prescription and non-prescription medications can be safely disposed of in the Operation Medicine Cabinet drop box located at Carpinteria City Hall. Some pharmacies are now implementing prescription drug takeback programs as well. Remember, no drugs down the drain.
3. Keep the wipes out of the pipes. Those so-called “ﬂushable” wipe products are really not ﬂushable after all—they do not break down in water as advertised. Once they enter the sewer system, wipes not only clog pumps and other equipment, they contribute to pipeline blockages and sewer overflows. Wipes are probably the number one cause of private-plumbing blockages as well, costing homeowners big bucks. Throw the wipes in the trash where they belong. 4. Have a FOG free 2016. One of the leading causes of sewer backups is the accumulation of fats, oils and grease— or FOG—in the sewer system. While the District has a program to control FOG discharge from restaurants, residential discharges are unregulated. Cooking grease that gets poured down the drain or sent through garbage disposals hardens in the public sewer mains, restricting flow and causing blockages. You can help by wiping greasy residue and greasy food off of plates, pots and pans. Use a paper towel and simply throw it in the trash. And never pour FOG down the drain. 5. Maintain your sewer lateral. Making sure your sewer lateral (the pipe between your home and the property line) is in good condition can beneﬁt both you and the public sewer system. Broken or cracked pipes and illegal drains that allow stormwater to enter the sewer are sources of inﬂow and inﬁltration that can impact our ability to properly convey and treat wastewater. Root intrusion into sewer laterals is also a major problem that can lead to sewage backups into your home. Periodic inspection of your sewer lateral by a qualiﬁed plumber is recommended to avoid such problems. We wish everyone a happy and healthy 2016. Thanks for doing your part and following these ﬁve resolutions for a clean sewer and a clean ocean in the coming year. Check out our website at carpsan.com for more information on these topics and contact us with any questions or feedback.

Halos Pitchforks Sniffing out a crook
A deputy reported tracking down an alleged cologne thief who smelled strongly of the stuff on Dec. 2. A Casitas Pass Road store had reported on Dec. 1 that employees found empty cologne boxes stashed on shelves. A review of surveillance footage from earlier in that day revealed a man who had a history of theft at the store pull up on his bicycle, which he parked inside the front the door. He then darted to the cologne aisle, emptied the boxes and slid the bottles of cologne into his shirt. The man, 28, was recognizable to a deputy and had already been asked by store personnel to not return. The deputy saw the man the following day cruising down Carpinteria Avenue on his bicycle and wearing what appeared to be the same clothing as the previous day. He noticed the man’s overwhelming aroma, but a probation search did not yield any of the stolen product. The man denied even having been in the store the previous day, though the deputy informed him that he’d watched the footage. The deputy photographed the man and informed him he’d give his probation officer a ring. The officer planned to match the photographs with surveillance footage and request prosecution.
A man in the process of moving out of his Elm Street residence reported that a thief took advantage of him going to and from the residence he was vacating on Dec. 5. Among many missing items was the man’s prized $300 collectible samurai sword. Also electronics and power tools were missing, but since everything was packed up the man had yet to identify everything that was potentially missing. When he returned from moving a load to his new residence, he noticed the window open and items missing. Deputies had no leads.
Deputies rounded up a prowler who was sneaking around dressed in black at 2 a.m. on Tomol Drive on Dec. 8. First a deputy on patrol spotted the man, 24, crouch behind a car as the police car rolled through the neighborhood. The officer pulled a U-turn, but the man in black had vanished. Soon after a neighborhood resident dialed 9-1-1 to report seeing a prowler run up his driveway and into the backyard. Officers were then pulling up to the resi-
dence and requested that the caller come outside to speak to them. When the resident opened his front door, he saw the man in black pressed up against the house. The man in black calmly placed his finger to his lips and shushed the resident, who turned and went back inside to call the police again. Officers found the man in black at the front door and arrested him for prowling.
A man who had left a cargo trailer in a motel parking lot on Carpinteria Avenue on Nov. 29 reported that it was missing on Dec. 5. The loaded trailer contained a dirtbike, camping equipment, tools and a hunting bow and arrow. Deputies contacted the motel at which it was parked without permission, and employees there said nobody had ordered it to be towed. They had seen it on the property, and it was no longer there, they confirmed. Deputies filed stolen vehicle reports for both the trailer and dirtbike.
A housesitter at a Camellia Circle residence reported that when she returned after a day of errands on Dec. 5, she found a half-eaten Hershey’s chocolate bar and emptied Haagen Dazs ice cream carton on the counter. She informed the homeowners, who returned that evening, and they later told deputies about the strange incident of an intruder with a sweet tooth.

A reader sends a pitchfork to the grinch who stole the Charlie Brown Christmas tree from the front of the Carpinteria Pool. A reader sends a pitchfork to the people on Sandyland Road who use leaf blowers. “You appear throughout the day, almost every day, to blow dirt and debris around, back and forth. It is a slap in the face to see and hear this happening endlessly during a ferocious wind storm!” A reader sends a pitchfork to Elf on the Shelf for shacking up with the reader’s daughter’s Elsa doll. “That was the lamest pick up line, too.” A reader sends a pitchfork to the person that stole the Christmas light laser from our front yard. “That’s really messed up.” A reader sends a pitchfork to the store that does not provide individually wrapped straws at the smoothie bar. “Having to take an unwrapped straw from an open bag that others have reached into is extremely unsanitary.”

Celebration honors Virgin of Guadalupe Photos by Antony MArchiAndo
Central to many Mexican celebrations of Christmas is the Dec. 12 Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which commemorates the belief that Jesus’ mother appeared in Mexico in 1531. The Peña family of Carpinteria has recognized this sacred day for years, and the celebration has grown to include dozens of local families. Last Saturday’s festivities started with a gathering at Dahlia Court for a feast and mariachi music. The group then took to the street, climbing aboard horses, hoisting banners and walking to St. Joseph Catholic Church to attend the Our Lady of Guadalupe mass.

Time capsule laid to rest for 50 years
A substantial slice of contemporary Carpinteria found its way into a metal box that was bolted closed, labeled with instructions and buried deep beneath the center of downtown last weekend. The time capsule made in honor of the city’s 50th birthday is not to be opened until the city’s 100th birthday in 2065. Donated by Rincon Engineering, the airtight container was designed to protect its contents from 50-plus years of water and worms and anything else it encounters underground. Included are DVDs of the two Golden Jubilee movies, a wooden nickel and pin from the city’s first anniversary, past and current issues of Coastal View News and a coloring sheet completed by each student from kindergarten through fifth-grade at Carpinteria Unified School District. Organizers hope to have many of the not-so-young-anymore artists on hand when the capsule is opened at the City of Carpinteria’s Centennial Celebration on Sept. 28, 2065.

On Wednesday, October 7th, we unveiled our new playground to excited girls ready to climb, jump and swing! Families, friends and supporters of Girls Inc., including the Carpinteria Chamber of Commerce came out to celebrate with us in the special ribbon cutting ceremony. We are incredibly grateful to the Carpinteria Lion’s Club for their support in helping us raise funds for the playground. The Lion’s Club selected Girls Inc. as the beneficiary of their annual Festival of Trees event, which boasts beautifully-decorated Christmas trees that are raffled off to ticket buyers. The proceeds will “play” a huge part in funding the construction of our new playground, which our girls are enjoying every day. carpinteria

Girls water polo players dive into season BY ALONZO OROZCO
Carpinteria High School
Entering his second year as coach of the Carpinteria High School girls water polo team, Lance Hoffman likes the Warriors’ chances. “We’re in a pretty strong position. It’s going to be a good, solid team,” said Hoffman whose squad will once again compete in the Tri-Valley League, which adds Santa Paula and Fillmore this year for a total of eight schools. Although Carpinteria loses three graduating seniors from last year, the Warriors will have returning team Most Valuable Player Brenda Rodriguez, now a senior, and All-Tri-Valley League goalie Nicole Poulos, a junior, back. The pair of standouts performed well in the team’s home opener, a 12-5 win over Santa Maria on Dec. 9, with Rodriguez netting seven goals and Poulos stopping eight shots and picking up ﬁve steals. The Warriors will also count on the senior leadership of two four-year players Elena Benidze and Crystal Landeros. Sharp-shooting sophomore Lili Castillo also returns after coming up to varsity during last year’s playoffs. Castillo pitched in three goals in the victory over the Saints. Carpinteria’s main competition for the league title ﬁgures to be defending CIF Champion Foothill Tech. “They’re an extremely fast team. They swim very, very well,” explained Hoffman. Like most years, Malibu also ﬁgures to be somewhere in the equation. “They have a whole line of CIF titles on the wall when you go to their pool,” said Hoffman, whose team swept the Sharks last year. The Warriors open league play on Jan. 6, hosting cross-pool rival Cate.
The Cate School girls water polo team won its ﬁrst game of the season, a 9-3 Dec. 3 victory over Hueneme. The auspicious start displayed some of the upand-coming talent that the Rams hope to develop this season. “It’s a very young team. We have four returning varsity players that provide stability, but aside from that it’s a developmental year,” said Cate coach Max Bergeson. The Rams will depend on a couple of talented freshmen, Ella Hendricks and Celia Foster, who will share time at the two-meter spot. Juniors Ally Satterﬁeld

Bergeson hopes to have them gelling by the time the Tri-Valley League season opens in January. The game against Hueneme began as a defensive battle, and the Rams didn’t see their ﬁrst goal until junior Ally Satterﬁeld scored on a power play with 1:29 left in the ﬁrst quarter. Cate began to ﬁnd its groove in the second quarter with another goal by Satterﬁeldright off the bat. Freshman Celia Foster followed up with a goal of her own with 4:29 to play in the ﬁrst half. Hueneme would go on to score with a little over three minutes until halftime to make it 3-1. Foster added two quick goals within the first minute of the third quarter, extending the lead to 5-1. Near the fourminute mark, Hueneme netted its second goal to close the gap to 5-2. But senior Izzy Moss answered back with her lone goal to extend the lead to 6-2. Fourth quarter action opened with a score from Lauren Lokre on Cate’s ﬁrst possession. Hueneme tallied what would be their final goal with four minutes to play. Freshman Ella Hendricks and Foster each added one to close out the scoring. Senior Sam Hill played in the goal the ﬁrst half, only allowing one goal in her ﬁrst start; and Jazmin Estevez-Rosas conceded two while in goal during the second half. Bergeson sees Foothill Tech as the strongest team in the Tri-Valley League with Malibu ﬁnishing second or third. Bergeson, who coached the boys water polo team to a playoff victory earlier in the year, said of coaching Cate students, “They’re great kids and they’re incredibly smart. They seem to mesh as the season goes on.” The Jan. 6 match-up against CHS at Carpinteria Community Pool will also be the Rams league opener.
Cate School senior Dean Smith was one of four teammates recognized with All-CIF 1st team honors.
Cate School football players garner All-CIF recognition
Seven Cate School 8-man football players were honored with All-CIF status for their part in leading the team to the Division 1 semiﬁnals. The team went 8-0 in the regular season but met its match on Catalina Island against Avalon High School in a 44-33 semiﬁnal loss. All CIF 1st Team honors went to Isaiah Washington, Keller Mochel, Dean Smith and Michael Nettesheim. Honorable mention went to Clinton Hall, Oliver Welsh and Luke Beckmen.

Dan Chamlee, driver of the Factory Racing team truck, recently captured the team’s 11th Class 7 SCORE International points championship.
Factory Racing earns 11th Class 7 points championship
Gary Sanchez, president of the Carpinteria Sportﬁshing Club, presented a check for $1,600 to Chet Work of The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County on Dec. 10 at Carpinteria Salt Marsh. They are joined by members of both the Carpinteria and Santa Barbara Sportﬁshing clubs.
Sportﬁshing Conservancy raises $1,600 for Salt Marsh
The sixth annual No Motor Tournament proceeds totaled $1,600 and supported restoration efforts in Carpinteria Salt Marsh. Representatives of local ﬁshing clubs, area tackle shops and businesses, along with The Sportﬁshing Conservancy gathered at the critical estuarine habitat to present a check for $1,600 — proceeds from this year’s tournament— to Chet Work and Bruce Reitherman of The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. The Land Trust owns, manages and restores much of the marsh. The unique family-oriented ﬁshing tournament allows local anglers to ﬁsh the Santa Barbara coast from shore or from motorless vessels. The event emphasizes conservation and catch-and-release, and anglers vie to bring in the biggest cumulative total length of ﬁsh caught and measured in inches. This year, ﬁrst was taken by Jeff Gallup with a total catch of 103-inches of calico and sand bass. The second place trophy winner was Corey Wells with 83-inches of calico bass. Third place went to Whitney Uyeda, who reeled in 49-inches of surfperch. The event’s Grand Prize — a Deep Blue ﬁshing SUP worth almost $2,000 — was awarded by rafﬂe and went to lucky winner Tyler Millhollin. “It’s very gratifying to see so many recreational anglers ﬁshing and supporting this important habitat,” said Tom Raftican, President of The Sportﬁshing Conservancy. “For six years, we’ve come together to have fun and have raised more than $7,000 to help those responsible for conserving and restoring one of our state’s few remaining tidal marshlands.”
Burquez refs championship
Tony Burquez, center, was on the ofﬁciating crew for the CIF Division 8 Finals on Dec. 5. The game was played between Charter Oak and San Marino at Citrus College, and San Marino claimed the title in its 44-21 victory. It was Burquez’s sixth CIF Finals game, and ﬁrst as the crew chief.
In spite of a very challenging race season, Dan Chamlee with the Factory Racing earned the team’s 11th Class 7 SCORE International points championship by winning the last race of the 2015 season, the Baja 1000. The team suffered three DNF (did not ﬁnish) results due to mechanical breakdowns over the course of the season, but won the Cabo to Loreto 500 to remain in striking distance for the championship before the Baja 1000 Nov. 18 to 21. Heading into the race, the points leader needed only to ﬁnish to take the title. Fortunately for Factory Racing, the points leader failed to ﬁnish, and Factory Racing’s ﬁrst-place ﬁnish garnered the team enough points to secure the championship. The 840-mile loop traveled from Ensenada down the Paciﬁc Ocean and over to the Sea of Cortez back into Ensenada, one of the roughest courses yet. The team had many challenges but its never-quit attitude helped it to ﬁnish the race and win. The team encountered issues with the fuel line, transmission, clutch, starter and steering arm, but the chase team was quick to deliver parts for repairs throughout the race allowing for a 31:31:35 ﬁnish. Chamlee acknowledges his accomplishments are due to the support of his team and sponsors: BFGoodrich, Rigid Industries, King Shocks, Sunoco, Rod-End Supply.
Warrior basketball captures Fillmore tourney
In what coach Johnny Ward recalled as the ﬁrst tournament championship in over 10 years, Warrior boys basketball won all three of its games to capture the Fillmore Tournament on Dec. 12. The team improved to 6-0 to start the season. In the first round of the Fillmore Tournament on Dec. 10, CHS edged Channel Islands by a score of 54-52. Jax Montgomery and Rayshaun Moore each scored 16, and Brandon Jordan tallied eight. With seven seconds remaining and the Warriors losing 52-51, Moore managed to get the ball across to the top of the key to Montgomery, whose three-pointer banked in as time expired to win the game. “We received strong play from Brandon Jordan in his ﬁrst game of the season since returning from injury,” said Ward. “His size, shooting and athleticism caused a lot
of problems for CI,” he added. In the semiﬁnals against Santa Ynez, the Warriors won 71-64 in triple overtime. The Warriors were led by Rayshaun Moore with 33 points and Brandon Jordan with 16 points and 23 rebounds. In the championship versus Fillmore, Carpinteria prevailed against the host team by a score of 69-62. Led by Rayshaun Moore’s 11 points and eight assists, and Brandon Jordan’s 21 points and 15 boards, the Warriors were able to jump to an early lead they never relinquished. “We received strong play from Terrell Richardson, Malcolm Gordon and Aaron Vargas, who all contributed in different ways,” said Ward. “We lost guard Eli Correa in the second quarter to a rolled ankle, but our bench stepped up to help out (Moore) with the ball,” added Ward. ––Alonzo Orozco
Warrior girls basketball plays tough tourney slate The Carpinteria High School girls basketball team participated in the Nordhoff High School Basketball Tourney last week. The Warriors captured a ﬁrst round win over the host Rangers by a score of 46-45. Point guard and All Tourney selection Tori Kelley drove full court for the winning layup with ﬁve seconds left in the game after Nordhoff went ahead on two free throws with 12 seconds to play. The second, third and fourth round games were all very competitive. Against Marmonte League Thousand Oaks, Carpinteria fell by a score of 50-38. Highly ranked Viewpoint from Calabasas defeated the Warriors by a score of 58-36. Then in a tough battle on Saturday, La Reina won 46-39. In that game, CHS nearly
erased a 20-point deﬁcit with a minute to go in the game, led by Monique Sanchez’s seven points in the fourth quarter. For the tourney, Kelley averaged 12 points and two assists; Harmony Reed averaged seven points, seven rebounds and two assists. Sierra Diaz averaged seven points. In all four games, Alondra Campuzano was a spark off the bench. The team will be playing some strong schools in preparation for league that begins Jan. 7, said Carpinteria coach Dan Mercer. The Warriors will host the ﬁrst annual Carpinteria High School Girls Basketball Tourney, Dec. 28 to 30, where they’ll open the ﬁrst round on the 28th at 6 p.m. vs. Orcutt Academy. ––Alonzo Orozco

Carpinteria High School
Dec. 7 – The Carpinteria High School boys basketball team defeated Providence Hall 56-39. Rayshaun Moore once again led the team in scoring with 21 points and took down six rebounds. Ryan Springer registered 20 points off the bench, and Jacob Garside collected 11 rebounds. Gianni Madrigal also pitched in 14 points. Assistant Coach Jackson Damron took over the helm for head coach Johnny Ward who was out of town. Dec. 8 – The Carpinteria High School boys basketball team beat Garden Street Academy 79-33. Rayshaun Moore led the Warriors with 24 points. Meanwhile, Evan Dufﬁeld scored eight and Terrell Richardson had 14, both career highs. “It was a tale of two halves for us,” said Carpinteria coach Johnny Ward. “We started off slow and not in the ﬂow of the game and Garden Street took it to us.” After a change of game plans, the Warriors forced turnovers and hit shots to break the game open and go to 3-0 on the season.
Dec. 8 -The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team played much better than the prior game, but still came out on the losing end of a non-league match with Channel Islands, dropping the game by a 1-0 score. “I thought Alejandra Alvarez played well. She had endless energy, which her teammates fed off of,” said Warrior coach Charles Bryant. Outside midﬁelders Emmelly Santillan and Aisha Duarte played well also. “They are starting to get in game shape, and their runs on the ﬂanks are starting to open up our offensive opportunities,” said Bryant. Alejandra Garcia turned in another solid game, and she was backed up by the stellar goalkeeping of Laura Valdez.
Warrior soccer player Joel Vences zooms downﬁeld in a home loss to Paciﬁca.
Dec. 11 – The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team for the fourth game in a row came up short on capturing its ﬁrst victory of the season, losing 2-1 against a strong Paciﬁca squad. The Warriors opened up the score in the 29th minute on a 40-yard boot by recently called up freshman Jose Jimenez. Ten minutes later Paciﬁca tied it at 1-1 to go into halftime. “We could not regain momentum in the second half after Paciﬁca opened up the score 2-1 in the ﬁfth minute,” said Carpinteria coach Leonardo Quintero. “It was a back and forth battle between both teams and an unexpected third team of the night, mother nature, gave us both an extra challenge with her howling wind, as the Warriors fell to 0-4 on the season.”
Dec. 8 - The Cate School boys basketball team lost the season and home opener to Valley Christian of Santa Maria by a score of 86-71. “Most teams that score 71 points, usually win the game,” said Cate coach Andy Gil. “We’re excited to clean up our defense and continue to prepare for league,” added the ﬁrst-year coach. Valley Christian went to the free throw line 22 times to the Rams’ three. Dec. 10 – The Cate School boys basketball team fell in the ﬁrst round of the Ojai Invitational to Rio Hondo by a score of 60-37. Marko Pliso for Cate ﬁnished with 21 points, his second consecutive 20-point game, and Clinton Hall contributed eight. “Tonight we must have missed 10 plus layups and ﬁnished from the (free throw) line 3-for-10,” said Ram coach Andy Gil. “We were much more aggressive attacking the basket, which is what we wanted to improve on after last game, which was a huge positive,” added Gil.
Warrior girls soccer player Tatiana Requejo uses her head in a 2-2 stalemate against St. Bonaventure.
Dec. 12 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team almost pulled out a win but settled for a 2-2 tie against St. Bonaventure. The Seraphs scored the equalizer with about two minutes to go in the game. The Warriors were down 1-0, when Kendra Meza, playing in her ﬁrst varsity game, evened the score about 15 minutes into the second half. Carpinteria went ahead with Alejandra Alvarez beating their keeper to a long, high through-ball and heading it past her. “I am encouraged by our progress and know we will continue to get better as the players get used to playing with each other and understand their assignments more,” said Warrior coach Charles Bryant.
Dec. 11 - The Cate School boys basketball team beat Villanova 65-21 on day two of the Ojai Invitational. Another knockdown game for Croatian Marko Pliso, a Cate boarding student who ﬁnished with 26 points for his third straight 20-plus night. The game was highlighted by the defensive play of juniors Pierce Lundt and Dylan Ell, as well as sophomore Andy McHarg. The second leading scorer for the Rams was senior Christian Burke with eight points. “We executed tonight and were able to hit big shots in the third quarter,” said Cate coach Andy Gil.

Dec. 8 - The Cate School boys soccer team lost to Paciﬁca 2-0 at Cate. Paciﬁca managed to get on the board when a ball was poked by goalkeeper Keller Mochel on a one-on-one confrontation 15 minutes into the game. Senior Captain Mochel ﬁnished with 17 saves and was outstanding, making a handful of excellent reaction and diving saves. Twenty-ﬁve minutes into the second half, a Paciﬁca attacker was taken down in the box, earning a penalty that was successfully converted to make it 2-0. “As usual, they played with passion, grit and heart,” said Ram coach Jim Kane of the team’s performance.

Adrift for the holidays
Confession: I’ve watched nearly every Hallmark and Lifetime special holiday movie that came along in the last couple of weeks. Mostly light romances involving a little heartbreak and the discovery of new love in some snowy setting. New York with ice rinks and snow-dusted shoppers or tiny New England towns that look like those frosted miniatures people set up for Christmas. Escapism is my coping mechanism right now after recent sad events—illness and death among family and friends, plus the horror of Paris and San Bernardino. How do you gear up for the holidays with events like that raining down like debris from a failed rocket launch? How do you wrap yourself up in the holiday spirit when all you want to do it duck and cover? And how, during this most joyful season, do you balance personal fear and trembling against the need to provide yourself and your loved ones with—if not a merry little Christmas—at least a good one? I think the only available path is to follow that old tried and true one, setting one foot in front of the other to achieve some forward movement. Go through the motions. Put up the decorations, maybe with the addition of a few new lights, wrap the gifts and send the cards, appreciating all the more the ones you receive in return. State Street is again decked with those shooting star lights that I think are so cool and lovely. Sparkle town. Twinkling winter lights do bring a certain lift to the spirits. Although I’m having a little harder time wrapping my head around the “Believe” slogan Macy’s trots out every holiday season. And even though the TV news continues to be grim. I cope by avoiding televised news, with every day bringing breaking stories on the California attack. I can wait to read the details in the paper. I’m not a head-burying ostrich, but I know when enough is enough. I’ve heard enough details, seen enough photos, listened to enough commentary—the sheer incessant mass of all of it compounding a heightened sense of displacement and fear. The L.A. Times recently ran a story about the reopening of the Paris cafes where so many died in the terrorist attacks. Parisians ﬁlled the cafes and packed the sidewalk tables. They came in droves to prove something—that a
We, too, persevere, despite a terrorist attack close to our homes and holidays and all the fear and desolation the event ushers into our lives.
spirit of openness and liberty can’t be annihilated by maniacs with guns. With their united show of bravery and deﬁance, those returning café patrons sent out a resounding message of resilience. It’s the spiritual equivalent of picking up the ﬂag dropped by a fallen comrade and carrying it forward. It’s about perseverance in the face of tragedy. We, too, persevere, despite a terrorist attack close to our homes and holidays and all the fear and desolation the event ushers into our lives. We press on it in our own ways. I escape by watching movies my friends would label “schlocky.” But they all end happily, with brightened hearts, and that’s what I need right now. And I listen to a lot of Christmas carols because I grew up with them, and they are sweetly familiar and hopeful. I crave the stuff of life heralded by the carols: turkey and some mistletoe, boughs of holly, tiny tots, drummer boys, sleigh rides and lovely weather, brown paper packages, silver bells, merry gentlemen, sugar plum fairies, light hearts and troubles out of sight, tidings of comfort, and the weary world rejoicing. Mostly I long for those tidings of comfort and wish for the weary world rejoicing. I want that merry little Christmas for myself, family and friends, and I wish the same for all of you. One good thing: Rediscovering—and recovering—Christmas every single year.

Amrit Joy’s Hints for Healthy & Happy Living
Breathe in, breathe out: That’s what it’s all about.
The breath is always with us. Mindful breathing brings us into the present moment. Breathe in and take in the “Prana” life force and energy. Breath out and cleanse and release tension, toxins and negativity. Take some time every day to focus on your breath. Move into the pleasure and joy of just being with the sound of your breath, the rhythm that your breath creates. The sound of your breath can be very soothing to you. The breath can bring you energy, clarity of mind, peace and serenity. Breathe because you are alive. Smile when you breathe. This relaxes the face and brings joy to you and others. Breathe in and breathe out and smile. This can make you happy. Amrit Joy is a certiﬁed Hatha and Kundalini Yoga instructor. She has been practicing and teaching yoga since 1976.

The Jan. 1 walk starts at 10 a.m. at the park entrance kiosk and loops along the beach and bluffs to Rincon and back. Participants will cover about six miles and should wear sturdy shoes and bring water. For more information, call 684-2811 x0.

Kathleen Tomscha’s second-grade Canalino School class received free books through the Reading is Fundamental program.
Reading is Fundamental distributes books to second-graders
The gift of good reads went to Carpinteria students on Thursday, Dec. 9 at Carpinteria Library in a book giveaway program sponsored by Reading is Fundamental. “The excitement and joy on the children’s faces is priceless!” commented Kathleen Tomscha, a second-grade teacher at Canalino School. The goal of the program is to inspire students to be lifelong readers through the power of choice, according to a press release. “Yes, it seems incredible for a book to launch a life, but it happens every day as hungry, inquisitive young minds reach out and grab hold of the new people, places and ideas that books bring them,” stated Tomscha.

Carpinteria feels the spirit Photos by Robin KaRlsson
Good cheer is abundant in Carpinteria year round, but the volume gets turned up every December when the Holiday Spirit Parade rolls down Linden Avenue full of friendly faces of neighbors and loved ones. This year’s festive procession drove the last bit of Scrooge out of any bystander’s heart and transformed Grinches into believers as the costumed dancers, singers and merrymakers passed by.
From left, announcers nilo Fannucchi, John Palminteri and Peter bie keep the crowd entertained and informed throughout the annual parade.
the traveling hurtados produced festive live music from a spot traditionally reserved for a broken down auto in the flatbed of the Colson’s Towing truck.
Still recovering from a body surfing accident last summer, Carpinterian of the year David Powdrell beamed at the crowd despite his restrictive neck brace. his wife Valerie chauffeured him while dog barnaby claimed the shotgun seat.
Santa’s sleigh gained wheels and a mule team for its journey from the north point of the parade to visit all the good girls and boys of Carpinteria.
Los Padres Outfitters rewound the hands of time, making 2015’s Linden Avenue look like the same street 150 years ago.
The Santa Barbara Forge and Iron family, many of whom reside in Carpinteria, wow the crowd with musical talent and a decked out swing.
Joel bott and Justine Pannier, along with other talented roller bladers, represented the Montecito YMCA in this year’s parade.

Lizzy Rodriguez, front, and Sarah Volle forgot to change out of their holiday PJs in time for the parade.
The unmistakable sound of bagpipes filled downtown Carpinteria as marchers in full costume blew their hearts out.
Representing different branches of the U.S. military are veterans Joe Escareno, Air Force; Richard Jimenez, Marines; Lorenzo Martinez, Navy and Marines; and George Power, Army. Behind them. Jimenez’s son Richard Jr. drives the 1957 blue Chevy truck that his dad bought brand new.
The cast of Curtis Studio of Dance’s “Nutcracker” gets into position for the start of the parade. Pictured from left are Olivia Light, Emma Jurgensen, Brook Barnett, Katie Cleek (at back), Sophia Nakasone and Hara Gutierrez.
The FFA float included a crew of Carpinteria heavy hitters. School Superintendent Micheline Miglis, whose birthday coincided with the parade, joined volunteer instructor Bradley Miles aboard the lead tractor, which was followed on foot by elected officials such as Carpinteria Mayor Gregg Carty, First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal and Assemblyman Das Williams.
