The county of Santa Barbara has released a new Storm Impact Considerations Map identifying properties that may be at risk from debris flow or flooding this storm season.

New storm impact map released

True Triangle cultivated in Carpinteria Valley by Cresco Labs

The county of Santa Barbara has released a new Storm Impact Considerations Map identifying properties that may be at risk from debris flow or flooding this storm season. Based on the most recent watershed data, the map indicates that very few residences in the city of Carpinteria remain in the impact areas at risk for flooding or debris flow. Many of the areas in Carpinteria Valley that were identified as at risk last winter have been removed from the impact areas. The map will be utilized by local emergency managers to determine what portions of the community will be evacuated if necessary this winter. If a storm is forecasted that may cause flooding or debris flow, the impact area may be evacuated. In the event of a rapidly developing storm with little to no warning, residents living in the impact areas should have a plan to protect themselves and their family if it is not safe to evacuate. To view the new storm impact map, visit readysbc.org.

Trash collection delayed during holidays

MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON Buy any of these local brands between now and the end of the year and The Farmacy SB will donate 5% of the sale price to the Freedom Warming Centers.

With Christmas and New Year’s Day landing on Wednesday this year, E.J. Harrison & Sons will delay Thursday’s regular trash collection schedule one day to Friday in Carpinteria the weeks of Dec. 23-29 and Dec. 30-Jan. 5. For two weeks after Christmas, residents may put out twice the amount of trash at no extra charge. Trash must be in bags. E.J. Harrison will also collect extra recyclables, but customers are asked to flatten all boxes. As another special holiday feature, Harrison is making it easy for customers to recycle their Christmas trees. All they need to do is remove the ornaments, hooks, lights, tinsel, bows, nails and tree stands, then cut the trees into sections no more than 4 feet long and place them in their yard waste barrels on their scheduled pickup days. Flocked trees also can be recycled. For more information, call 805-647-1414.

Firefighters bring holiday cheer to families in need This holiday season, the Carpinteria-Summerland Firefighters Association joined forces with the nonprofit organization CALM to help supply families in need with a gift-filled Christmas. Each year, CALM, whose mission is to support local and county wide children and families that are the victims of abuse and trauma, organizes the program Family to Family. Eager to help, the firefighters sponsored multiple families this year, shopping for families from wishlists provided by CALM and wrapping gifts during their shifts. Gifts ranged from practical household items to toys and books. “Sometimes holiday stress makes me feel disconnected,” said Firefighter Dean Carey, “but wrapping all those presents for families in need gave us the chance to bond with co-workers, help our community, and connect with the spirit of the holidays.” Through the Family to Family program, CALM identifies families they serve who could use the extra support and then coordinates with staff to determine each particular family’s needs. By connecting people to one another across the county, the Family to Family program brings holiday cheer to families in need, strengthens protective factors for children and Multiple families in need will have a little more holiday cheer because of the Carpinteria-Summerland Firefighters helps to prevent abuse by fostering a Association and CALM’s gift giving program, Family to Family.

Infrastructure near Rincon Beach is shown at risk during the King Tide in December 2012.

Carpinteria moves to mitigate sea level rise with interim policies By DEBRA HERRICK At the Dec. 9 special joint meeting of the Carpinteria Planning Commission and City Council, city staff were directed to prepare numerous options for an interim protocol for development on properties that will be impacted by sea level rise. The decision came after city staff presented an update on the potential issues that could arise relating to sea level rise and development review in the remaining two years before the city’s General Plan and Local Coastal Plan (GP/ LCP) are completed and adopted. The multi-year process to update to the GP/ LCP began in 2016, and is currently at its midway point. Permits for development in the coastal zone have caused moral and legal quandaries for decision makers in the last few years. while probability-based projections conducted for the city indicate that sea level rise will impact a proposed development project within the duration of the project (generally set at 75 to 100 years), the city does not currently have an effective policy in place to deny a property owner’s permit application without facing potential liability for a regulatory “taking”—the legal term for a governmental body asserting control over privately held property. “we now have a sea level resiliency report,” said Steve Goggia, city community development director. “But we don’t have policies yet to address sea level rise.” The implications of sea level rise on new development and redevelopment creates a unique permit review and decision-making challenge to the city until new sea level rise policies and regulations are developed and certified by the California Coastal Commission. This process has been underway since January 2016, and is projected for completion in 2022. “It is a constantly changing body of law,” said Kimberly Lavette, associate to the city and an expert on sea level rise. “From the state, we just receive guidance… to incorporate into planning regulations. The city creates its own zoning rules.” The California Coastal Act requires cities to adopt LCPs and for property owners to garner coastal development permits for all development. The law also allows for the Coastal Commission to appeal a judgment by the city. Further regulations from the California environmental Quality Act (CeQA) require an environmental review during the permitting process. Potential approaches to sea level rise include protection (i.e. sea walls), devel-

opment that allows adaptation over time (i.e. homes built on stilts, the winter beach berm) and managed retreat (i.e. setbacks, a space between the shore and development). The city of Carpinteria is expected to take a hybrid approach. “we need some direction,” said Commissioner Jane Benefield. “We need to do something in the interim (before the GP/LCP is complete).” Benefield later requested that staff “make a lot of options” for interim policies.

City Council honors community partners

At its regular meeting on Dec. 9, Carpinteria City Council recognized nonprofit organizations that work in collaboration with the city of Carpinteria and the county of Santa Barbara to provide a critical service to the local homeless population. Council honored the North County United way’s Home for Good program as an “outstanding community partner.” eddie Taylor, CeO of North County United way accepted the commendation saying, “we are working with the least among us, those who are homeless throughout the county… our volunteers are there for people who are in desperate need.” Taylor noted that the organization’s teams have transitioned two or three individuals in Carpinteria into homes in the past year. City Council also recognized the hot lunch volunteer group that meets every wednesday at the Veterans Memorial Building Meeting Room to provide a warm meal to those in need. Volunteers also help participants in receiving critical services. In accepting the commendation, volunteer organizer Mike Carmel said the “very humble” volunteers in this program are “supporting our neighbors who are missing basic needs.” In a show of support to the Carpinteria business community and the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce, City Council read a proclamation that January is “Carpinteria Business Month.”

ADU fees

City Council approved an update to the Fire Protection Mitigation Fee Schedule for development and the CarpinteriaSummerland Fire Protection District’s Annual Report. The update incorporates a new state law prohibiting the charge of development impact fees for Additional Dwelling Units that are fewer than 750 square feet.

On behalf of the vulnerable

As I sit here eating my pancakes and considering holiday gifts for my family, I continue to be saddened by the thought of children and their families from our southern border being held in cruel conditions. No happy holidays for them. On the contrary, fear of what each day brings—fear for the future. Please join me on the corner of Casitas Pass and Carpinteria Avenue each Friday at noon to protest the continuing dire conditions of our most vulnerable.

Gail Marshall Carpinteria

Another call to action

I liked Mike Wondolowski’s informative article “We cannot afford to fail” (CVN, Vol. 26, No. 11) on the need for action on the climate crisis, but I disagree that sea level rise is our community’s biggest climate threat. The most immediate and dangerous threats are heat and denial of the magnitude and urgency of the problem. The Union of Concerned Scientists released a report this summer on the effects of climate change on temperatures in the middle and end of this century depending on the amount of action we take to stop climate change. The report is titled “Killer Heat in the United States” and can be found on their website. It says in part: “This analysis shows the rapid, widespread increases in extreme heat that

are projected to occur across the country due to climate change, including conditions so extreme that a heat index cannot be measured.” The problem is huge. The U.S. Energy Information Administration says daily world oil use is 100 million barrels. Humanity is addicted to cheap fossil fuel and while it has brought great advances and prosperity, like any addiction, it has come at great costs, which as addicts we have denied. Personal choices like walking, installing solar panels or driving an electric car are well intended, but our only real hope is to force corporations and governments at all levels to provide immediate and massive funding for renewable energy, investing in grid storage with batteries and hydrogen, requiring all new vehicles to be zero emission within 10 years and much, much more. Our species has never faced a problem of this size. Humanity is quite capable of destroying the planet we live on. The only question is will we choose to act in time to save it?

Cannabis intervention

It seems that Carpinteria may be the “cannabis Love Canal” because of the high density of marijuana production without adequate regulation to protect students and residents from the putrid odor that is causing many to suffer serious allergic health conditions. Those of us who are not allergic resent being forced to breathe the foul odor. The county should have conducted studies regarding the permanent health effects of daily long-term exposure before issuing licenses, because the growers are not being honorable by showing concern and doing things to mitigate the problem. They just belittle residents’ health conditions. What will it take to convince the growers and the county to treat Carpinteria residents with decency and respect? Perhaps a class-action suit and federal intervention. We have to stop them. Santa Barbara County plans 186 acres of marijuana for the Carpinteria Valley.

Ruth Case Carpinteria

Don’t fret over cannabis

It’s short-sighted to fret over cannabis farming in Carpinteria. I get that it’s new, and there’s a whole century worth of reefer-madness stigmatization to overcome.

Looking beyond the knee-jerk anticannabis fervor, I see an ag revival in Carpinteria Valley. Flower farming was big business until international trade opened up and made it impossible to compete. In cannabis, our farmers (the best farmers in the state!) only compete within the state for market share. Lois Capps once labeled Carpinteria Valley “America’s Flower Basket.” We were proud. I’m prouder now than ever. Greenhouse properties are being improved in our farm belt. Thousands of employees get better pay in cannabis than other parts of the ag sector, and they work in environments free from dangerous chemicals. There’s a whole web of industries that benefit from the ag boom. My restaurant and catering company, The Food Liaison, included. The county collected $6.7 million in direct cannabis tax revenue last year, and who knows what other taxes are a direct result of cannabis. The industry increased sales across all local businesses. Property values at farms are being reassessed and the increased values will trickle directly to our local school district. These various revenue streams represent shared public benefits that I’d hate to see disappear—for everyone’s sake. Where’s the downside? As a community member, I will continue to advocate for responsible farming and less finger pointing. Let’s call for a holiday truce on misinformation and divisive attacks.

Jason Rodriguez Carpinteria

An unlikely outcome

The national impeachment furor may be over by the time this wish hits the newspaper. If not, I had a thought, make it a fantasy, but still I can hope: As the House impeaches the president who has lied, bribed and corrupted all things normal in our democracy, the Republicans could be the esteemed heroes of the nation by agreeing, en masse, to vote for his removal from the office he was never elected to. It would be hard to retaliate against all the senators. So possibly those gutless wonders will redeem themselves and save us from ourselves.

Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) Notice of Public Meeting for Formation of Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) The City of Carpinteria, Carpinteria Valley Water District (CVWD), and the Counties of Santa Barbara and Ventura will cohost a Town Hall meeting to discuss formation of a Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). This is a continuation of an effort to develop and implement a long-term Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) to locally manage groundwater. The Carpinteria Basin has been designated by the California Department Water Resources (DWR) as a “High Priority Basin” and therefore must comply with the requirements of SGMA which are intended to set a framework for managing groundwater at the local level. The first step of compliance is formation of a GSA. The four agencies hosting this workshop have expressed interest in being a part of the Carpinteria GSA. SGMA is designed to be a collaborative process with the goal of developing an appropriate governance structure and an appropriate groundwater management strategy. Stakeholder involvement is an essential part of this effort and includes local agricultural groundwater users, groundwater dependent environmental interests, California Native American tribes, disadvantaged communities and all interested stakeholders within a community. CALTRANS

A plan is currently under review to build a bike path connecting the Padaro Beach neighborhood with west Carpinteria.

Comment period opens on bicycle path project

Caltrans has opened the public comment period for the US Highway 101 Santa Claus Lane Bicycle Path Project ––a plan to build a Class I Bike Path near southbound Highway 101 between Estero Street in Carpinteria and Sand Point Road. The initial study with a Proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration for the project can be viewed locally at the Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria

Ave., or at dot.ca.gov/caltrans-n…/…/ district-5-current-projects. Public comments must be received by Monday, Jan. 6. Public comments or a request for a public hearing can be emailed to Environmental Branch Chief Jason Wilkinson at jason.wilkinson@dot. ca.gov or sent to Jason Wilkinson, Caltrans District 5, 50 Higuera Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401.

The Agencies have developed a draft Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) that will generally define the governance of the GSA. The Draft Agreement and information can be found on the CVWD website at www.cvwd.net/water_info/sgma.htm The goal is to establish Carpinteria’s GSA in early 2020 so that our basin/community is eligible for important State funding. Your input will be important to development of this GSA so please consider attending the Town Hall meeting to hear about the GSA formation process. The Town Hall meeting will be held: Date: Monday, December 16, 2019 Time: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Place: Carpinteria Lions Park 6197 Casitas Pass Road Carpinteria, CA 93013

Carpinteria joins Monterey Bay in California’s largest community choice aggregate

On Dec. 5, Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) added 11 new jurisdictions, including Carpinteria, Goleta, Santa Maria, Solvang and the county of Santa Barbara, to its aggregate of 21 existing member jurisdictions. Carpinteria is now part of the state of California’s largest community choice aggregate (CCA), geographically speaking. CCAs are also known as community choice energy agency (CCE). MBCP is a CCE agency established by local communities to source carbon-free electricity for Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties and now portions of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. PG&E continues its traditional role delivering power, maintaining electric infrastructure and billing. As a locally controlled not-for-profit, MBCP is not taxpayer funded and supports regional economic vitality by providing cleaner energy at a lower cost, supporting lowincome rate payers, and funding local energy programs. With the addition of the new jurisdictions, MBCP will now reach 430,000 customers, spanning 8,000 square miles. Through its carbon-neutral power mix, MBCP estimates reducing carbon emissions an extra 240,000 metric tons in 2021, equal to removing over 50,000 cars off the road for one year. “This means Santa Barbara County is now part of a large five county effort to reduce carbon pollution and fight climate change,” said First District County

Customers within the newly approved jurisdictions are set to begin receiving electric generation service from MBCP in early 2021, gaining access to MBCP’s local energy programs that reduce local greenhouse gas emissions and help solve energy resiliency issues. —Debra Herrick

Before buying plasticware for your big holiday meal, ask your guests to bring their own silverware. In addition to reducing waste, mismatched silverware adds an eclectic touch to your holiday table.

Make reducing waste a holiday habit CVN

While Carpinteria’s LIVING new regulations for disposable THE GREEN serverware take LIFE effect Jan. 1, ERIN MAKER the reality is The holiday season is upon us, and that can mean many things—visting with all disposable friends and family we don’t see often, wearing our stretchy pants to meals, or utensils are just perhaps following a family tradition that is so old its origin has become something that—disposable. of legend. Currently, our It’s a time of gathering with people we love, but also one of excess. composting facilities As we enter the holiday season and head towards the new year, I thought are not capable a guide of good habits to form when it comes to waste would be helpful. Recyof breaking those cling has become confusing, and the questions I get often range from “is this plastic materials down, so recyclable, or trash?” to “I heard nothing is recyclable anymore, is that true?” they all go straight to For too many years, we have had the the landfill. out of sight, out of mind mentality. I want to stress that recycling efforts overall are an excellent habit, and 40 plus years ago the waste world didn’t think they could ever convince people to change their ways. We proved them wrong. Moving forward we can do even better to protect this precious planet of ours. Here are some general tips to help form better habits and have real impacts. Sharing a lot of meals with people is fun, but I have been to many parties where things go to waste. The best option, environmentally speaking, is to make vegetable-based dishes and only enough so it won’t go to waste. Encourage guests to bring their own reusable to-go containers to share leftovers, put things away before they have a chance to go bad, and compost any food scrapes. Making turkey, chicken or some other meat dish that will have a lot of bones left over? Consider making a stock with the leftovers—it is surprisingly easy and is a way to use veggie scraps as well as meat. I usually just toss everything in the crock pot with some water and let it cook for 18 plus hours. For reusable containers, there are lots of great options out there if you are trying to steer clear of plastic. I have a variety of glass and stainless-steel dishes that I love. They are easier to clean, outlast plastic dishes by many years, and as a bonus, they do not pass on the flavor of whatever they held last to your next meal. Picking up take-out? Skip the disposable plasticware and instead invest in a reusable set. I have a nice lightweight set I take everywhere that was in the range of $9 and works as well as the nicer silverware I have at home. While Carpinteria’s new regulations for disposable serverware take effect Jan. 1, the reality is all disposable utensils are just that—disposable. Currently, our composting facilities are not capable of breaking those materials down, so they all go straight to the landfill. The same is true of straws, but lucky for us there are

lots of fun reusable options for those as well, and conveniently most come with brushes for easy cleaning. One of the harder things to tackle is waste associated with packaging. UPS estimates it will deliver a whopping 800 million packages this holiday season, and the U.S. Postal Service expects to deliver 900 million, in addition to 15 billion other pieces of mail. That adds up to a lot of truck trips, and a lot of extra waste. I am not here to tell you not to shop— spending is a large part of our economy. But while you are shopping, think about buying from that cute local boutique down the street rather than online. Try to buy from companies that are making a commitment to reducing waste. Can’t find that one thing you are looking for locally? Consider emailing the company you are ordering from asking them to start instilling more environmentally friendly business practices. Consumers have a strong voice in making companies change their ways. While all of these habits are great to form over the holidays when the amount of waste we generate spikes, making choices that reduce overall waste year round will have lasting impacts. Plastic production is on the rise, which means plastic waste is also on the rise. Everything we do to reduce waste has a domino effect—fewer truck trips, lower greenhouse gas emissions, changing business practices to be more environmentally friendly. And those are all important in the fight against our changing climate. Erin Maker is the environmental coordinator for the city of Carpinteria.

Artist Rick Sharp depicts classic surfing scenes of old California and Hawaii, and Will Breman comes to IBC on Dec. 29.

IBC to host visual and performing art in December

Artist Rick Sharp will have paintings at Island Brewing Company from Dec. 5 to Feb. 2 with an artist reception on Dec. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. where he and his friends will also play music. Firmly rooted in Southern California’s surf culture, Sharp’s early work includes T-shirt designs and posters for O’Neill Wetsuits, Hang Ten Sportswear and the logos for Channel Islands Surfboards, Sims skateboards and Andreini surfboards. The artist also created several Fiesta posters for Santa Barbara’s annual celebration. As an avid surfer and lover of all things vintage, Sharp delights in creating his retro-surf paintings as much as he cherishes his time in the surf. He captures classic moments in his art at his favorite surfing beaches the way it was when the sport was young. Rick Sharp delights in creating his nostalgic paintings and explains that he seeks to depict classic moments “the way it was and sometimes still is.” His art is available online at ricksharp.com. And back from performing on NBC’s nationally acclaimed show “The Voice,” Will Breman will perform a solo show at Island Brewing Company on Sunday, Dec. 29, from 3 to 6 p.m. Breman made it to the round of the final eight performers on “The Voice,” besting many talented musicians. His distinct vocalizing style, guitar work and ability to seamlessly embrace any musical style is a testament to his virtuosity.

Community heroes

Mandy Gocong brings her passion to Compassionate Care of Carpinteria BY DEBRA HERRICK This holiday season, as we reflect on events and actions from this past year and make resolutions for the new one, CVN will be spotlighting individuals in the Carpinteria Valley community that have shown extraordinary generosity of spirit and service in 2019. This week, we get to know Mandy Gocong a member of the steering committee for Compassionate Care of Carpinteria (CCC), an initiative of Hospice of Santa Barbara. Gocong was recommended by Marybeth Carty, who is the CCC steering committee chair. One of CCC’s most public events is the annual Light Up A Life ceremony at the Seal Fountain, to be held this Saturday, Dec. 14, at 5:30 p.m. The annual tree lighting benefits CCC and provides an important moment for the community to honor the lives of their loved ones and to support each other during the holiday season. In this Q & A, we ask Gocong about what motivated her to get involved with CCC and how the organization positively contributes to our community.

out Carpinteria to those faced with a life-threatening illness. Some of those services include patient care, bereavement, community engagement and education.

Mandy Gocong: I grew up in Carpinteria and attended local schools. I then went to Santa Barbara City College and transferred to University of California, Santa Barbara where I studied Psychology. I worked throughout high school and college teaching dance, coaching cheerleading and working office jobs. I married my high school sweetheart, Chris, 12 years ago and we have two young daughters. I’m fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom and do some rewarding volunteer work throughout the community. What is Compassionate Care of Carpinteria’s mission? Compassionate Care of Carpinteria (CCC) is an initiative of Hospice of Santa Barbara. CCC’s mission is to provide the same services that Hospice does through-

What’s special about this organization?

What do you do for the organization? I’m on the steering committee for CCC. We have a great group of people from the community who focus on outreach, fundraising and putting on local events to support this great cause. Since we are new to Carpinteria, we are trying to educate the community on our services and all that they have to offer. We are all going to go through difficult life events and knowing CCC will be there in that time of need takes away part of that burden.

“Giving back to the community is a priceless act that helps strengthen the community at the same time it gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment.”

CVN: Tell us a bit about yourself.

their services. I am forever grateful for them.

What motivated you to get involved? I’ve always been a very passionate person. Once I commit to something, I’m all in. So, when Marybeth Carty asked me if I’d consider being on the committee, I gave it a shot and realized quickly how important is was for Carpinteria to have this available to them. Was there a specific event in your life that led you to this specific cause? Five years ago, I lost my mom. When her health took a sudden turn for the worse I was in complete panic. I had no idea where to begin when I was faced with really difficult decisions. I was a new mother at the time and was not ready for all the life changes that were being thrown at me. A family friend referred me to Hospice, an organization which I knew very little about. They quickly swooped in and helped me come up with a plan of action. Because of them, my mom was able to have a peaceful passing at home surrounded by family and friends, listening to her favorite music. Even after her passing they continued to check-in on me and let me know they were there to help whenever I was ready. You can’t even buy that kind of support and I didn’t pay a penny for

! Free

Healthy Relationships are

Within Your Reach You can have relationships that are happy, healthy, and stable.

What most people don’t know is that our services are completely free to those individuals and families who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness (whether they get better or not). There are many businesses out there where you pay for almost the exact same services. CCC provides patient care services, bereavement counseling and family support. For example, someone may need help navigating through their new medical diagnosis, rides to appointments, grocery shopping, dog walking, companionship and so much more. The highly trained volunteers come in without an agenda and are there to support the patient and/or family however needed. Why do you think it’s important people give back to their community? Giving back to the community is a priceless act that helps strengthen the community at the same time it gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment. It’s a way to build connections and rally around those people that need some extra love and support. How has volunteering with this organization impacted your life? I continue to meet so many brilliant and passionate people with a common goal. I see the positive impact CCC has on our community and local families. The most heart-warming stories are those people that get better. Hearing their stories and how grateful they are for the help of CCC/Hospice, gives you hope and encouragement to continue your work. Do you volunteer with any other organizations? Being a mom of two school-aged kids, I’m consumed with school fundraising. In the past, I worked with several animal

Mandy Gocong shelters and organizations and hope to get back to that soon. Do you have any wishes for the new year? Each year I wish for good health and happiness. I’m constantly working hard on making those two wishes my reality. Tell us what volunteer work means in your own words. Volunteering is an immeasurable act of selflessness. It’s giving your time and energy toward something you are passionate about without expecting anything in return. It feeds your soul and gives you a sense of purpose in life. How would you describe Light Up a Life Carpinteria (Hospice Tree Lighting)? Each year Carpinteria gathers at the Seal Fountain downtown to honor the lives of their loved ones. Our community really pulls together to support each other during the holiday season when we seem to miss those no longer with us the most. This year’s Light Up A Life ceremony will be on Dec. 14, at 5:30 p.m. and includes guest speakers, music and tree lighting. You can purchase your very own Superstar that directly benefits Compassionate Care of Carpinteria at the ceremony or online. We look forward to seeing those silver stars shine in the light for this memorable event. To learn more about Compassionate Care of Carpinteria, visit hospiceofsantabarbara.org.

Warrior girls basketball earn two wins at Bird Cage Classic By Alonzo orozco • Photos By rosAnA swing

The Carpinteria High School girls basketball team competed in the Bird Cage Classic this month, spending much of last week traveling to host school and longtime rival Bishop Diego. The Warriors came into the tournament with a 1-1 record under second-year coach Benti De La Cruz. Over four consecutive days, the team took on four different schools. The Warriors played their first game against the host Cardinals, staying with Bishop in the first quarter and trailing just 11-7 going into the second. But the Cardinals spread their wings in the next stanza, taking a 27-11 lead into halftime. The second half began with both teams hitting multiple buckets. At one point in the quarter, Carpinteria’s Alondra Lemus knocked down seven straight points. However, Bishop gradually extended their lead and finished on top with a score of 61-38. The leading scorers for the Warriors were: Hannia Hernandez with 15 points and Kaela Kelley with nine. In their next game, the Warriors faced the Patriots of Providence from Santa Barbara. Off to a quick start, they finished the first quarter ahead 19-0, and proceeded to build a 39-4 lead at the half. Hernandez scored 10 in the third, and Carpinteria went on to a 75-18 win. “Freshman Gracie Verdugo had a standout performance by dominating the boards and scoring a season high of 24 points,” said De La Cruz. Hernandez added 21 points and Gabriella Graham had 13 points. In the girls’ third game, they faced Coastal Christian of Arroyo Grande. After trailing 7-6 at the end of the first, the Warriors found themselves down at halftime, 25-11. Carpinteria made a final charge in the fourth, but ended up falling, 38-34.

Hernandez once again led the team with 10 points, while, Graham and Kelley each pitched in seven. On a rainy Saturday afternoon, they took on Coast Union of Cambria in their final game of the tournament. The Warriors were without their leading scorer, Hernandez. Carpinteria got an early boost with a long trey from Kelley to take a 3-1 lead. They added to the lead to finish the first quarter up 10-7 but ran into some foul trouble going into the second, sending the Broncos to the line 15 times in the first half. However, junior guard Jasmine Gilbert knocked down seven points in the quarter, giving the Warriors the lead at the half, 21-15. In the third, Coast Union went on a scoring run, and captured the lead at 24-23. The Broncos would go up again 27-25, but a three by Kelley helped put Carpinteria up again, 29-27 going into the final quarter. It was a tight fourth quarter, with the Warriors down by one. Graham drilled a three to put the Warriors up 40-38 with under a minute left in the game. Evelyn Marino played a key role, coming up with a couple of steals and huge rebounds in the fourth to secure a 41-38 win. The leading scorers for the Warriors were Kelley with 15 and Graham with 14. “We had some ups, we had some downs,” said De La Cruz. “It was great for them to see both sides of the game, and for them to deal with this now, so we can go into (the Citrus Coast) league and we can battle.” Carpinteria’s overall record improves to 3-3.

Junior warriors seeks board members

CVYAA Junior Warriors is looking for new members to fill board positions as they move into their fifth season. Junior Warriors was created by a group of volunteers in 2016 who wanted to keep youth football afloat in Carpinteria, giving kids the opportunity to play in the town they live and go to school. Obtaining their 501c3, collecting community donations to purchase equipment and putting in countless volunteer hours, CVYAA Junior Warriors was formed and has thrived for four seasons, offering boys and girls ages 6-14 tackle football, flag football and cheer. “A strong board is an extremely important base to any youth athletics in Carpinteria and especially to this program,” says Melissa Angeles, current president of Junior Warriors. “With so many aspects, cheer, coaches, equipment, schedules, etc. it is necessary to keep a full board of responsible volunteers with enthusiasm for youth sports and football and to bring that energy and expand into additional sports.” Over the past four seasons, Junior Warriors has steadfastly kept the safety of their players at the forefront, ensuring all coaches keep up with their USA Football Heads Up certification and collecting the funds to fit every player with current certified equipment and guardian caps. “Wearing up-to-date gear and keeping our coaches current on proper tackling techniques is always at the top of our list,” said Athletic Director Tony Jimenez. “Teaching kids the right way to play now will help them when they play in high school.” Jimenez added that Junior Warriors have had zero concussions during the last two seasons since players started wearing guardian caps. There will be a meeting for those interested in joining the board at Island Brewing Company, 5049 6th St., on Dec. 12, at 6:30 p.m. Multiple positions are open and are required to be filled in order to have a successful 2020 season.

Girls soccer

December 10 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team dropped a non-league game to Thacher, 3-2. “We scored in the first five minutes with Cydney Smolnikar slotting a well-placed ball past their tall keeper,” said coach Charles Bryant. Towards the end of the first half, the Toads put a ball behind the Warriors outside back that found the back of the net to tie the match. Carpinteria ended up scoring and taking the lead again on an Erika Estrada corner kick. Carpinteria is now 2-4 overall, and will take on Oxnard, Lompoc and Beverly Hills twice in the next four games.

Cate School Boys basketball

December 4 - The Cate School boys basketball team traveled to Ojai to play in the Nordhoff Tournament, facing Rio Mesa who they outscored 47-41 in a first-round victory. The Rams were led by seniors Khadim Pouye and Ethan Ng with 16 and 17 points, respectively. “Nkemka Chukwumerije and Mason Oetgen led the defense with Nkemka pulling down 15 rebounds and Mason being all over the court altering shots,” said Cate coach Andy Gil.

The championship game was Tony’s eighth CIF final and Wally’s seventh.

PreP News Carpinteria School

Boys soccer

December 4 - The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team traveled to Ventura, dropping a 2-0 decision to the Cougars. A goal against themselves and a deflection proved to be the difference in the game and accounted for the only two scores. The match was originally scheduled to be played at Valley Memorial Stadium but was moved to the more weather-friendly synthetic turf down south. “We will continue to make strides in what is left of our preseason and prepare for league play at the beginning of 2020,” said Warriors coach Leo Quintero. “In our quest to perfect our game today, we took a leap forward gaining valuable experience for most of our young men at the varsity level.” Carpinteria falls to 0-4 and returns home to play Golden Valley of Bakersfield. December 6 - The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team hosted Golden Valley of Bakersfield in the first ever meeting between the schools, falling to the visitors by a score of 3-0. “We embrace and welcome opponents from any part of California,” said Warriors coach Leo Quintero. “In the hunt for our first win of the season, we’ll have to wait as we are still experiencing growing pains.” Carpinteria has a makeup game against crosstown rival Cate still to be scheduled, and hosts Buena on Friday (Dec. 13).

Boys basketball

December 4 - The Carpinteria High School boys basketball team hosted rival Bishop Diego and came away with a 59-57 overtime win. Jose “Swat” Suarez tipped in the game winner at the buzzer and finished with eight points and six rebounds. Gabe Medel led all Warrior scorers with 16 points and eight rebounds. Dylan O’Neill tallied 13 points and six rebounds, while Ian Reed registered 12 points, six rebounds to go along with six assists. Mateo Handall also had eight points and 10 rebounds. Matt Cunningham was the game’s leading scorer with 18 for the Cardinals. December 10 - The Carpinteria High School boys basketball team lost to Foothill Tech, 64-43. Gabe Medel and Dylan O’Neill each scored 12 points with O’Neill grabbing seven rebounds. Bodhi McDonald was the game’s high scorer with 18 points, followed by Brian Holloway with 13 for the Dragons.

Girls water polo

December 5 - The Carpinteria High School girls water polo team hosted Fillmore for their first Citrus Coast League match of the season, swimming away with a 15-6 victory. “The Warriors played hard and maintained a lead over the Flashes through the quarters,” explained Warriors coach Sergio Castaneda. The Warriors next opponents will be Newbury Park and Santa Ynez. Carpinteria is now 2-1 overall and 1-0 in league. December 10 - The Carpinteria High School girls water polo team hosted the Newbury Park Panthers, dropping a 15-9 decision. Senior Sadie Mead scored a goal in the first minute off a foul outside the five-meter mark. “With the Panthers being a couple divisions up on the Warriors, they knew it would be a tough game,” said Carpinteria coach Sergio Castaneda. “Junior Cassidy Hajducko had a great performance with three goals to her name, and great movement that allowed her to find crucial openings.” Carpinteria overall is now 2-2, and 1-0 in the Citrus Coast League.

December 5 - The Cate School boys basketball team took home a day-two win at the 77th annual Nordhoff Basketball Tournament over Malibu by a score of 52-30. “After a slow start with neither team scoring in the first two minutes, junior Tyler Tom came off the bench to spark a 10-0 run by getting back-to-back steals and assists and a big rebound for an outlet,” said Rams coach Andy Gil. “The Rams were led by senior Ethan Ng with 14 points and a balanced day for Thomas Nettesheim as our floor leader.” December 6 - The Cate School boys basketball team dropped a game to Buena, 52-41, in the last game of pool play at the 77th annual Nordhoff Tournament. “The Rams were all tied up at 26 at the half after a huge first half from Ethan Ng and Parker May,” said Rams coach Andy Gil. Buena’s six-foot, six-inch Luke Edwards was shut down by Thomas Nettesheim in the first half in the first-ever meeting between the two schools in basketball. May led all Cate scorers with 13 points and Austin Schleicher led Buena with 18. “We competed as well as we ever have in my five years at Cate School, and couldn’t be prouder,” said Gil. December 7 - The Cate School boys basketball team beat Pacifica 54-39 in their final game at the Nordhoff tournament. The Rams took third place and Ethan Ng took home All-Nordhoff Tournament honors. “Incredible deflections and hustle by the entire team that was contagious and led to a fun atmosphere for the Rams,” said coach Andy Gil of the team’s performance.

Girls tennis

December 5 - Cate School girls tennis double partners Carol Cai and Grace Fuss faced a familiar foe in Samantha Noh/Essence Wang of Westlake in the CIF Sectionals, dropping a 6-3, 6-2. “Both teams held serve through the first four games, but Noh and Wang gained a vital edge in the fifth game and momentum began to shift in their favor,” explained Rams coach Trevor Thorpe. “This is the end of high school tennis for Grace Fuss and Carol Cai, but both are receiving attention from a number of NCAA programs and are likely to continue at the collegiate level next fall.” Both were a part of a Cate team that went 47-3 during their tennis careers.

Girls basketball

December 5 - The Cate School girls basketball team was back in action against Foothill Tech at home, falling to the Dragons by a score of 38-30. Meena Baher had 11 points and four steals, while Lily Zanze had eight points and 10 rebounds. Maya Blattberg had seven points and five rebounds and Deborah Brittain scored two points and pulled down six rebounds. “Baher, Piper Brooks and Maya Fenelon led the tough defensive charge in the frontline holding the Dragons to only five points in the (fourth) quarter,” said Rams coach Laura Moore. Cate returns to action against Carpinteria, Thursday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m.

Girls soccer

December 6 - The Cate School girls soccer team traveled to Ojai to take on Thacher, shutting out the Toads on a rainy afternoon, 4-0. The Rams got goals from Tali Nam in the 47th minute, Lilly Riehl in the 48th and 65th minutes and Rachel Ma in the 79th minute. Assists came from Emie Nam, Ma, Neema Mugofwa and Riehl. Goalkeeper Taylor Kane had seven saves. “In the second half, we were able to get much better control of the ball with a renewed effort to manage our first touch,” said Cate coach Taylor Wyatt. “Outside defenders Olivia Dorion, Lea De Vylder, Tamsyn Taptich and Julianna Forry found that sweet spot on the field where they could do their essential jobs, but also aid in counterattacks, stepping forward to control play in the dangerous space between defense and midfield.” Cate evened their record at 1-1-1.

Boys soccer

December 7 - The Cate School boys soccer team opened their season against Thacher at a neutral site, St. Bonaventure, because Cate’s fields weren’t playable, and the Rams walked away with a 3-1 win. “It was Thacher who scored first midway through the first half, taking advantage of some Cate confusion on a free kick to collect a deflected ball and slot it past a diving Devin Pai in net,” said Cate coach Pete Mack. Five minutes into the second half, center back Harry Corman stepped up into the midfield and slotted a pass to Buba Fofanah up top, whose shot found the back of the net. Twenty minutes later, Corman found Fofanah again, who slotted the ball back across the goal mouth to Daniel Boateng who had made a run for the score. Then, center back Kobby Nimako found Fofanah with a through ball that he shot past the Thacher keeper for his second and the game’s final goal. “While Fofanah and Boateng kept Thacher’s defense busy, the play of Cate’s back line, especially outside backs Andrew Mabon and Lukas Hendriks, did a superb job of giving Thacher’s forwards little time on the ball, which translated into offensive opportunities for us,” explained Mack whose team starts the season at 1-0.

L I S A O ’ R E I L LY Those words were whispered into my ear, followed by a soft kiss placed upon my cheek. I stirred but kept my eyes closed, remembering instantly that this was not Christmas Morning. There was no hurry to jump up today, no surprises by the fireplace, no stockings to unstuff. Not yet. But it was Christmas Eve, when all those teasing presents could be unwrapped! A thought wandered slowly, though, as sleep fell away. It was strange, my mother waking me on a vacation day. “Look outside.” I caught my breath and listened intently. The normal morning sounds were missing. No quail calling their “ka-chooko,” no rain birds sputtering water on the backyard, and no far away tractor noises coming from the golf course. There was nothing. Silence. And that, coupled with the early morning jingle of “look outside,” could only mean one thing. Swiftly I looked up at the dance in my mother’s eyes. Still in mid-gasp, I untangled my legs from the blankets, threw myself out of my own bed and onto my sister’s, where we both stood to look out the window. We saw it together. SNOW!! Not a light dusting with the grass poking through and the basketball court ignored, not minor inches with yet exposed shrubs and fences, but SNOW! Great, beautiful heaps of pure whiteness everywhere. Our backyard was covered with it. The side street disappeared beneath it. Neighbors’ roofs and leaf-stricken trees, heavy with it. Our fence merely suggested by a mounding of it. My sister and I were perfectly harmonious. “It’s SNOWING!” Because, still, it came. Huge flakes shaped as daystars, abundantly flowing

from a sky we could not see. It fluttered and fell, and as I watched, I saw how it erased everything. All the borders and barriers were gone. There were no delineations between our yard and the street, or our yard and the neighbors’ or the golf course. It was all one gigantic playground stretching from the window we stood behind to as far as we could see. And it was all ours! That thought released us from the window. We jumped off the bed. White, waffled long-johns, sweaters, jeans and socks were layered on—where’s my boots, where’s my gloves!—and down the hall to breakfast. Toast and hot cream of wheat, with butter and sugar and cinnamon. Our brother already at the table, of course, and we all try to move the food past our excitement. We don’t say it, but we’re all thinking it. Hurry, hurry, hurry, before it stops! But we were not disappointed. This time it did not stop, nor did it turn to melting rain. This was Christmas, and this snow would last. Once outside I had a moment alone. What first? Sleds and saucers, or snowmen and forts? I stood for a moment, protected by our porch, wanting to absorb the flawless blanket extending our front yard to across the buried street and the open land beyond. So perfect and unbroken. I left the porch and took a few steps— already it was to my knees—and still it silently fell. It seemed impossible, such a mass descending so quietly, and I cleared my throat to make a noise, to see if it was the cold muting my ears, but that sound came easily. I moved towards the street, careful to lift cleanly each leg before taking a step, wanting to make as little impact as possible for now. It barely squeaked under my boots, and when I reached the top of our driveway, I looked to the right and knew what it was I had to do first. A soft ball of snow broke against the back of my head, pausing my plan. I wiped the coldness from my neck and heard my brother’s laugh, his victory at being the first to strike, and I turned towards him and scooped up a handful of snow. But instead of packing it into a
