Survey says school bond would likely pass

Paper beats rock

BY LEA BOYD

Before a bond measure is inked or a campaign launched, voters are already prepared to approve up to $110 million in funding to improve local public schools. As the Carpinteria Unified School District Board of Education heard at its May 13 meeting, 63 percent of the voters polled in the district supported a school bond initially, and 71 percent supported a bond after hearing statements regarding the need for improvements. Between April 6 and 24, FM3 Research conducted a phone survey of 239 district voters with a recent history of voting. John Fairbank of FM3 presented the board with survey results, painting a positive picture for the district’s chance of passing a bond measure this fall. Surveyors tested voters for three bond amounts, $110, $95 and $80 million, and found no statistical difference in support. Should a bond measure pass by the necessary 55 percent plus one, property taxes would increase corresponding to the bond amount by $55, $47 or $40 per $100,000 of assessed property value. After a year spent developing and revising a draft master facilities plan, a document that will inform the bond amount, the board is scheduled to approve a final plan at its June 10 meeting. Then, on June 24, the board will consider adopting a resolution for a bond measure, which would go before voters this November. The draft facilities master plan includes replacement of 55 aging portable classrooms with new modular buildings at a cost of $21.2 million. Less expensive than traditionally built classrooms, the modular structures are built offsite and installed relatively quickly, reducing the time students are displaced. Other large expenses that are likely to be wrapped into a bond measure are technology and electrical upgrades, safety and security improvements and a new science wing at Carpinteria High School. Polling indicates that top voter priorities, in descending order of importance, are ensuring that bond funds are used locally, retaining and attracting quality teachers, repairing leaky roofs, upgrading fire safety systems, annual independent audits, removing asbestos and lead paint, plumbing and heating/cooling and repairing deteriorating classrooms. The bottom two voter priorities are upgrading sports facilities and improving parking lots and dropoff/pickup areas. The district as a whole enjoys a high level of community confidence. Of those surveyed, 50 percent ranked the entire district as excellent or good, while only 22 percent assessed the district as fair or poor. The rest said they did not know. Support for a bond was highest among those who assessed the district well. White and Latino voters offered about the same level of support. Among Democrats surveyed, 76 percent supported a bond, while 46 percent of Republicans did.

Island Brewing Company’s tasting room became a rock, paper, scissors arena on May 12, when craft beer aficionados played a cut throat tournament of wits. Tournament official Will Carleton kept the skilled competitors on task and called the bracket in favor of Maya Halverson Baldwin, whose fast draw paper smothered rock for the win. The special event kicked off Craft Beer Week, which continues through Sunday with small batch releases and activities at IBC, 5049 6th Street.

Teachers plead for greater salary increase

At the same May 13 meeting where school board members heard that the community valued its public schools and would likely support a massive bond measure, board members also heard from a roomful of teachers who feel undervalued and underpaid. CUSD teachers have endured years of uncertainty in their pay schedule. Cost of living increases to their salaries have been spotty, and now that the pulse of the economy is quickening, teachers are at the bargaining table in search of compensation for what some referenced as overdue deferments. Record district reserves amounting to over $4 million—18 percent of the CUSD budget—came under fire as teachers lambasted the board and administrators for hiding behind “doomsday rhetoric,” as teachers union president Jay Hotchner put it, to build unnecessarily high reserves and avoid giving teachers raises. “I’m tired of hearing what you can’t do,” Carpinteria High School teacher Jeremiah Sobenes told the board. “Prioritize. Make us your priority.” In the district’s defense, Board President Andy Sheaffer said though paychecks haven’t grown much, rising health insurance costs have been shouldered by

“Teachers and classified staff are barely making it in this district. I mean, barely making it.”

––Felicity Moore

CUSD at great expense. Right now, he said, the district is offering teachers a 3 percent salary increase on top of a 1 percent one-time payment. Add to this higher health care costs that amount to 2.29 percent of wages, and the total increase in compensation being offered is 6.29 percent. Debra Leiter, a CMS teacher, told the board that its first offer of a 1 percent cost of living adjustment was “a slap in the face” and 3 percent was still insufficient to make up for several years at no increase. “Teachers and classified staff are barely making it in this district,” Felicity Moore said. “I mean, barely

There was both good and bad news in store for Carpinteria City Council members when they heard a third quarter update on the budget at their May 12 meeting. The good news was that the difference between revenues and expenditures was decreasing, and the budget was edging closer to becoming balanced. The bad news was that there would be more draws on the general fund through subsidies in the coming fiscal year. John Thornberry, administrative services director, said, “We are looking pretty good. We are pretty close to estimates.” According to the staff report provided, the 2013-14 budget had projected general fund revenues of $7.11 million. By the end of the fiscal year, the general fund revenues are expected to exceed projections by $72,000, and balancing the budget should require just $45,000 from reserves. During this update, city staff discussed projections for next year’s budget. One area of concern involved the fact that five funds are expected to require subsidies from the general fund. Four of these, park maintenance, park development, the right-of-way assessment district and recreational services, have been receiving subsidies for several years, but the gas tax fund is expected to be added to this list next year. “We will have five funds requiring general fund subsidies, unless we make changes,” Thornberry said. City Manager Dave Durflinger explained why these subsidies had become necessary. He used the parks maintenance fund as an example. He said, “The parcel tax that pays for parks is fixed.” The amount collected does not increase to adjust for inflation, and does not increase with the addition of park space, he explained. The right-of-way maintenance fund was of particular concern. As the city council heard at a previous meeting, Carpinteria’s road infrastructure is at a critical juncture. This fund has received subsidies from the general fund for several years. Finding the money to subsidize this fund, and the four others, is going to be a challenge. “We’re going to have to cut services, or collect revenues to deal with the shortfalls,” Durflinger said.

Reduced parking fee kept in place

There was some good news for business owners at the meeting. The city council voted unanimously at the meeting to extend the Parking Facilities Development Impact Fee reduction until Jan. 1, 2016. This DIF had been added to offset parking impacts from new or intensified development in the Downtown T. In 2002, the council adopted a DIF that would charge business owners $21,600 for each space, if they could not provide adequate on-site parking. By 2011, with inflation, this fee had risen to $23,863. In February 2011, the city council voted to reduce the DIF to $6,051. This was then subsequently reduced to the current amount of $5,189. On May 12, the city council voted unanimously to extend this reduction until Jan. 1, 2016, or until the new DIF plan, currently under development, is established. Councilman Al Clark spoke in favor of the reduced Parking Facilities DIF. He said, “We don’t want to discourage local businesses from starting up in our community.”

Council opposes Measure M

In a rare divided decision, the council voted 3-2 to oppose Measure M, a countywide initiative on the June 3 ballot. Mayor Brad Stein and councilmen Clark and Fred Shaw voted to take a stance against the ordinance that would require the county to maintain its infrastructure at the level of its current condition. The annual cost of maintaining the county’s infrastructure at the current level is estimated at $20 million. City council members who voted to oppose this measure said they were concerned about where this money would come from. Councilman Clark said, “Measure M is basically an unfunded mandate. We don’t know where the money is coming from.” He voiced concern about the programs that might have to be cut to fund it. “Many of the options are not attractive, like new taxes,” he said. Councilman Wade Nomura and ViceMayor Gregg Carty voted against the motion. Nomura said, “I want to make sure that we have all the facts before making a decision.”

Foothill view impacts come from RMA driveway

Visible from downtown Carpinteria, a series of zig-zagging cuts into a Rancho Monte Alegre hillside, in the foothills above Santa Monica Road, are the product of driveway construction, according to Santa Barbara County planners. The roadway that is now being built will lead to two unbuilt homes that are part of RMA, a property that has for many years been planned for subdivision into 25 separate parcels with homes. An agriculture conservation easement overseen by the Land Trust for Santa Barbara blankets the entire ranch, and building envelopes were identified and approved during the process of establishing the easement. The new driveway follows the path of an existing primitive ranch road, but grading and widening were necessary to bring it up to code. County Planner Alex Tuttle said that the fresh cuts into the hillside will be re-vegetated and should be much less visible at the completion of the project. In an effort to minimize the permitted homes’ impact on foothill views, plans are for two, single-story, “low profile” structures along the ridgeline, according to Tuttle.

Movies in the Park seeks donors

Carpinteria Movies in the Park has launched a fundraising push to secure the necessary $6,000 to host another summer of free outdoor films at Linden Field. The all-volunteer organization is planning a lineup of six Thursday night movies starting on July 17 and running through Aug. 21. Now a local summer tradition, the movie series draws hundreds of people, young and old, to downtown Carpinteria to see family friendly films on a 30-foot inflatable screen. To date, less than half of the necessary funds have been raised to hold the series. Anyone interested in contributing or sponsoring the event can visit carpmovies.org or call Bill Dayka at 684-0013.

Ag tiers opposed

I am opposed to any fee increases for residential, commercial, industrial, public authority and agricultural water use. The most onerous fee increase is the proposed temporary three-tiered rate structure for all agricultural users. During a drought, agricultural water use would naturally increase raising water cost to the user. This is sufficient incentive for agricultural users to conserve. It is disappointing the district would use the drought as the lever to increase water district fees. The board of directors might consider a review of the following before implementing the proposed fee increases: 1. Eliminate the district’s unfunded liabilities. 2. Examine the district’s cost versus

Districts could diversify council

Should Carpinteria consider district elections? Districting for a city council election means electing councilmen to represent sections of the city versus atlarge elections. For instance, we could divide the city into four different sections and elect a representative from each section and also an at-large candidate to make up a five-member council. What we have now is what is called an at-large election, which means the persons receiving the most votes are elected no matter where they reside as long as it is within the city limits. Currently, the make up of our city council is all men with no women or Latinos represented. This seems to be out of balance and not representative of current demographics. Perhaps it is time to discuss this serious imbalance and make a change in our city charter to be more reflective of our current population. The people now serving on our city council are good and capable men. However, the imbalance remains and will continue until we change our system of electing our councilmen. I think the time has come for a serious discussion regarding equal representation within our city.

In the May 8 issue of Coastal View News, the article “School board prioritizes green classrooms, defers CHS theater” misstated that the Carpinteria Unified School District’s Board of Education is considering a new administrative building. In fact, the board is considering a long-term plan to replace a trailer behind the administrative building with a modular building.

viewpoint Carpinteria Education Foundation gives CHS seniors wings By Sally Green

Carpinteria Education Foundation

The Carpinteria Education Foundation raises funds throughout the year. The foundation then awards the funds through grants and/or money to individuals, organizations and groups for the purpose of advancing the education of students in the Carpinteria Unified School District. For several years, CEF has awarded scholarships to Carpinteria High School seniors. The foundation has just completed this process and will award 24 scholarships totaling more than $38,000 at the awards assembly in June. The awards are sent directly to the college/university where seniors have been accepted and used as credit for the students. CHS students apply through the counseling office, then CEF reviews the applications and interviews are held with each senior. Several community members, as well as CEF Board members, interview students over a five-day period. This is one of the most rewarding processes for those involved in the interviews. CEF would like to praise parents, teachers and staff, because we have some truly amazing young people attending our schools. These CHS students arrive on time, are nicely dressed and shake hands with each of the interviewers. They are articulate, smart and know what they want to do with their education and their future. They have to be nervous, but they are poised and eager to share their stories. Each speaks highly of parents who want them to go to college to achieve,

in some instances, more than the parents had been able to do with their education. Some have succeeded against all odds. All but two had applied and were going to four-year universities. They are the future, and it is a pleasure to hear their stories and why they were able to meet their goals. Congratulations, parents, you are doing a great job! Every student mentions one of the teachers that greatly influenced them. Some are teachers they had in elementary or middle school, but most referenced the CHS teachers. Many teachers are mentioned again and again. Teachers who prepare them for the rigor of a university, some who just listen, some who truly nurture and guide them on their course towards their aspirations. It is inspiring to listen to these young people who so highly praise their time at CHS, and CUSD. This community should acknowledge everyone involved with the district. For such a small community, we are producing some excellent college material. Each of the principals and all the teachers should be very proud. Carpinteria, please help CEF provide $50,000 in senior scholarships in 2015! Businesses, real estate offices, restaurants, everyone can contribute and make a difference no matter how small or large. Zookers has already proposed a portion of their receipts for one day. Join them, and please contact the CEF office at 5661615. Thank you.

From the Carpinteria Valley Water District

Water District remains severely impacted by the drought Please conserve water

A shortage of as much as 1,000 acre feet is quite possible if the next rainy season, which begins Oct. 1 of this year, is dry. In a typical year, the district needs about 4,100 to 4,200 acre feet of water for its customers in the Carpinteria Valley. An acre foot of water contains 325,900 gallons and is enough to provide the annual needs for about three to five homes in the valley. All three of the district’s sources of water supply are severely stressed: • Lake Cachuma is now below 75,000 AF of storage out of a total of about 200,000 AF. The District is looking to buy water to be delivered through the State Water Project system and into Lake Cachuma to prepare for at least a 50 percent cut in its annual 2,800 AF of Cachuma allocation starting Oct. 1. • The State Water Project this year is providing only 110 AF of new water. It typically provides Carpinteria Valley with about 1,000 AF per year. Sierra snowpack, which in the past has acted as a massive above ground reservoir for the whole State of California, is currently at an all-time low of about 16 percent of average. • Carpinteria Valley groundwater levels are slowly but surely dropping due to a multi-year lack of rainfall replenishment. This decline began even before the drought began in 2011. The better news in this bleak picture is that the district this year has gotten two big new wells—El Carro and Headquarters—up and running. As a result, total district groundwater production capability is up to 3,000 AF. The district is also in the process of altering its Foothill Storage Tank to enable optimal use of the new big wells. On Feb. 12 the Board of Directors declared a Stage 1 Drought Emergency

requesting voluntary water usage reductions of 20 percent. With a need to do more now, the board is proposing increased conservation oriented water rates and charges, including a drought surcharge for all customers to pay for new drought related expenses. Also proposed are conservation oriented tiered rates for agricultural customers, who use about half of the district’s water each year. If approved by the board, they will be paying for the costs of the drought just like all other customer classes. If the drought breaks, the drought surcharges for all customers and tiered rates for agriculture can be reduced or even eliminated by the board. This year ’s proposed water rates and charges for fiscal year 2014-15 are also proposed in two stages to address a potential worsening of the drought impacts and a corresponding need for additional conservation by customers. Proposed stage one rates and charges will be implemented for water used in July. Proposed increases in stage two water rates (but not monthly charges) will only be implemented at the direction of the board sometime after Sept. 1, and only if and after the board declares a likely water shortage. The district’s public hearing for all proposed rates and charges increases will be held on Wednesday, June 4 at 5:30 p.m. in Carpinteria City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Ave. The district acknowledges and thanks its many customers who have embraced new conservation measures. Please keep it going! Please call the district at 684-2816 x116 for a free water use check-up and advice on how to reduce your water use. The district’s website cvwd.net also remains an on-going source of information about the drought and conservation tips.

Patricia Hales Griffith 1923 – 2014

Pat, a fourth generation Carpinterian, passed away on Friday, May 2. She was raised on a ranch in Lillingston Canyon, and from early childhood became a lover of nature as she experienced it around her every day. Helping her parents, Jake and Dolly, and her grandparents, Tate and Maggie, around the ranch, helped her to realize a deep joy and appreciation for family ties and traditions. At a young age, she became an avid reader—a passion she followed all of her long life. During her childhood years and into her teens, she was always quite active, especially with horseback riding, camping and going to the beach. She and her two brothers, Peter and John, were good friends, often in a competitive, playful way, as she was the oldest of the three and maybe a bit of a bossy tomboy. Pat loved classical music and chose the piano and the double bass as the instruments she learned to play in high school. This, along with her good grades won her a scholarship to Occidental College after graduation from Carpinteria High in 1940. During her first year in college, she impulsively fell in love and married a handsome, bright young Masters student named Ed Hennessy, and soon had a baby boy named Edmund, Junior. She dropped out of school to become a fulltime housewife and mother while her husband earned his degree. Then the little family moved east when the breadwinner landed a teaching position in North Carolina. After that year, they decided to return to Carpinteria to live in a house at the Lillingston Canyon ranch, while Ed Sr. started teaching at SBCC. Several years later, a second son, Jack, was born. From that time on, Pat never left Carpinteria for more than a week or two. Then, as now, it was a great place to raise a family. Ever resourceful, when the marriage unraveled after 10 years, she re-invented herself and took on some interesting jobs here in the valley: running a summer day camp for kids at the local beach, and starting a nursery school at the family ranch. She met and later married David P. Griffith, originally from Anaheim, Calif. He had two young daughters, and so evolved a new, larger and happier family.

Several years later, Pat realized that she needed to help support the family if the kids were to get the best education. She enrolled in the Santa Barbara Business College and learned the business of being a secretary. Her natural intelligence and organizing abilities served her well in this pursuit. Soon she got a job at UCSB, where she worked in several departments over 22 years and rose to the level of administrative assistant. While there, she befriended several professors and students who remained lifelong members of her extended family. In retirement, Pat continued to work part-time for various organizations, including The Community Arts Music Association of Santa Barbara, the Carpinteria Chamber of Commerce and the Carpinteria Nursery Growers Association. For many years, she volunteered time to the Carpinteria Valley Historical Society, working to preserve the unique historical essence of her lifelong home. She authored an essay, which captured the flavor of her early childhood in the Canyon of the late 1920’s. It filled almost an entire edition of the society’s newsletter. She was a devoted member of the Carpinteria Community Church, where she taught Sunday School for years, and sang in the choir for decades. On Saturday, May 24, at 1 p.m., a Memorial Service for Pat will be held at the church, at 1111 Vallecito Road, Carpinteria, CA 93013. She has requested donations to the church choir fund in lieu of flowers.

John I Peterson, Jr. 7/13/1949 – 5/5/2014

John Peterson, Jr. 64, died on May 5, 2014 at Serenity House in Santa Barbara. He was plagued with liver cancer, which spread to his lungs. He lived at Shepard Place in Carpinteria, and everyone there knew him and loved him. He never hesitated to give of himself and was instrumental in staging many of the senior complex’s activities, dinners and parties. The word “no” was not in his vocabulary. When his neighbor needed to be driven to the VA hospital in Los Angeles, John, without any hesitation, drove him down and back for each of his appointments. He was born in New York on July 13, 1949 and moved with his family to California in 1976. He was preceded in death by his parents and daughter Heidi, and is survived by his wife, Shirley, his four sons, John III, Lars, Kenny and Allen and adopted daughter Danielle, his sisters Judy and Laura, and his brother Chris. He joined the Carpinteria Masonic Lodge in 1986, and served as Master of the Lodge six times. He served as mentor to many of the future officers, and also served as Worthy Patron of the Carpinteria Order of the Eastern Star. He received the Lodge’s highest honor, known as the “Hiram Award” in October 1990. A waffle breakfast served at the Lodge by Order of the Eastern Star is planned for Saturday morning, May 17 at 9 a.m., and is dedicated to his memory. Memorials should be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

May Jackson 1920-2013

A Carpinteria resident of over 50 years, May Jackson has passed away. May was a kind, compassionate woman with a good word and a smile for everyone. Her strong faith guided her life. Devoted to her children and grandchildren, she spent her working life providing for them. Proud of her Irish heritage and the number one Dodger fan, now she gets to see every game from the good seats. She is preceded in death by her daughters Brenda and Holly. May is survived by son Lee of Idaho and daughter Barbara of Florida, and grandchildren Rob, Debbie, Kelly, Randy, Shannon and Marcy. She is also survived by long-time friends Mel and Jeanette Munoz and family of Carpinteria, and the Davis family of Carpinteria. Services will be held at the Carpinteria Cemetery on Friday, May 23 at 10:30 a.m. Followed by a celebration of her life at 1339 El Portal Street, Carpinteria. Go with the angels, Mom.

Q & A with sheriff candidates Sheriff Bill Brown has occupied the top seat of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department for the last eight years, and in 2010, his was the only name on the ballot. This year, however, his challenger, Sandra Brown, has gained enough support to make the sheriff’s race the hottest item in the June 3 election. And, of course, it’s a race that Carpinterians should care about. The police cars circling Carpinteria streets

all bear the department’s logo and all the officers in town work for the sheriff; it’s a contract that consumes $3.35 million of the city’s $7.1 million annual budget. Readers, if you haven’t done so already, familiarize yourself with Bill and Sandra and what each one stands for.

Sheriff Bill Brown

Sergeant Sandra Brown

Please provide a short description of your background and your accomplishments as sheriff.

Please provide a short description of your background and interest in the position of sheriff.

I have 36 years in law enforcement, including 21 years as a chief executive (police chief and sheriff). I hold a master’s degree from USC and was president of the California Police Chiefs Association. I’m endorsed by over 1,000 persons from across our county. Please visit BillBrownforSheriff. com for additional information.

Carpinterians have complained of a disconnect between law enforcement and the community since the city closed its police department and began contracting with the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department in the 1990s. How can deputies on the Carpinteria beat shed their outsider label and gain greater acceptance as the local police force? Mayor Brad Stein endorsed my re-election by saying, “He has treated our community better than I could have imagined.” Although there’s always room for improvement, we practice a community policing philosophy in Carpinteria and strive to interact positively with citizens. One example is our regular “Coffee with a Cop” event.

In 2012, the receptionist positions at the Carpinteria Substation were cut, and now residents must visit the Santa Barbara offices for services formerly provided locally. What needs to happen to restore a publicly accessible Carpinteria office? The change in public access to the Carpinteria Station resulted from the severe financial constraints and subsequent staffing cuts the City of Carpinteria and the Sheriff’s Office had to deal with due to the recession. As the economy improves, our goal is to see positions restored and the station reopened.

You have worked doggedly to secure funding and support for a new North County jail. The need for a new jail has been questioned, and the amount of attention you have dedicated to the project has been criticized. How do you respond to those critics? Criticism that I’ve spent too much time addressing jail overcrowding is nothing more than campaign rhetoric. This 30-plus year crisis threatened public safety and had to be tackled. I kept my promise to voters by dealing with it and securing $119 million in state funding for a new branch jail. This facility will enhance safety countywide, create jobs, inject millions into our local economy, and better prepare inmates for a successful return to the community.

I have been a member of the sheriff’s department since 1996. I have worked assignments from Carpinteria to Cuyama. I never thought my path would lead me to run for sheriff. I believe I can lead the department to decrease crime and improve the quality of our lives.

Carpinterians have complained of a disconnect between law enforcement and the community since the city closed its police department and began contracting with the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department in the 1990s. How can deputies on the Carpinteria beat shed their outsider label and gain greater acceptance as the local police force? We need to stop talking about Community Oriented Policing and start doing it! One of the best things about law enforcement is interacting and being part of the community we work in. I will promote deputies walking beats and getting to know their community.

In 2012, the receptionist positions at the Carpinteria Substation were cut, and now residents must visit the Santa Barbara offices for services formerly provided locally. What needs to happen to restore a publicly accessible Carpinteria office? It is time to provide better customer service to Carpinterians; this problem has been ignored long enough. If we cannot financially cover the positions then I would embrace having volunteers work in the office. It is time for a solution, ignoring this inconvenience to Carpinteria is not acceptable.

During Sheriff Bill Brown’s time in office, he has significantly advanced plans for a North County jail. This progress has gained him both favor and criticism. What do you think of his efforts? How would you address the project if elected? The sheriff has been singularly focused on the North County jail for almost eight years. While ignoring the rest of our department’s mission, causing a staffing crisis and decay to our current jail. I am looking at changing our philosophy to being proactive, improving our neighborhoods, education to youth and families and reducing crime. We cannot spend all our efforts on incarceration; incarceration is our failure of not succeeding with early intervention.

One for the homies

Jaywalking to jail

A woman so absorbed in her phone conversation that she crossed the street with hardly a glimpse into the roadway was pulled over by a patrolling deputy at Trieste and Venice lanes on May 4 at 2:30 p.m. The deputy looped around to stop the woman, 21, and her companion, and she remained so involved in her conversation that she failed, at first, to acknowledge the deputy’s presence. He had the women sit on the curb and ran both parties’ records. He found the yacker had an outstanding warrant for her arrest. The deputy arrested her, and for her part, she said her engaging conversation was related to her stressful situation surrounding her search for a new place to live.

Slouch

A deputy spotted a figure hunched over the steering wheel of a vehicle in a Casitas Pass Road parking lot on May 6 at 10 p.m. and decided to investigate. Through the vehicle’s open windows, the deputy saw that the slumbering man, 40,

had an open can of Steel Reserve in the cup holder. A knock on the window and a “Sheriff’s Department” announcement awakened the man, who mumbled, “hello” to the officer. The officer noted an immediate odor of alcohol from the disoriented man. Asked if there were any drugs, alcohol or weapons in the vehicle, the man at first replied in the negative, but when asked again, he began digging under his seat. The deputy commanded him to stop and put his hands on the wheel, but he kept digging, prompting the deputy to draw his pistol to meet fire with fire in case the man was reaching for a weapon. The man responded to the sight of the officer’s firearm and put his hands on the wheel. The deputy reached into the vehicle, unbuckled the seat belt and had the driver step out of the vehicle. The driver said he was only attempting to retrieve a bottle of vodka, because the deputy had asked if he had any alcohol. He further iterated that he had been traveling from Ventura to Santa Barbara to visit his daughter. The deputy arrested him for public intoxication.

A man busted for shoplifting a bottle of gin from a Casitas Pass Road store explained to officers that he needed the bottle to share with his homies in Santa Barbara. On May 5 at 9:30 a.m., a store employee notified deputies that he had witnessed the man, 19, sneaking out of the store carrying the bottle under a flannel shirt. The employee said “stop,” but the suspect ran. When deputies arrived, the man was still in the shopping center and was quickly ordered to the ground, where he stayed until the store employee positively identified him as the taker of the Bombay Sapphire. During an interview with officers, the man said he had gone into the store and scoped out the place for employees before visiting the liquor aisle to grab the bottle. He said that by the time he heard the employee telling him to stop, he had already left the store, so it was too late to turn back. He also acknowledged that he only had $6 on him, not enough to cover the $40 bottle, making the alleged crime a premeditated burglary rather than a theft. Deputies noted the man had a prior theft conviction and a Santa Barbara gang tattoo on his forearm. The man explained that he hardly had time to keep up with his gang anymore, but the bottle was intended to share with his old homies.

Roll call

Deputies visited a Via Real motel on April 20 and asked the clerk to hand over

the registration roster for them to view. The name of a guest rang a bell with a deputy, and running of motel guest’s record showed the man had an outstanding arrest warrant. The clerk said the guest resided at the motel part time with his family. Deputies knocked at the door and took the man to jail for his misdemeanor warrant.

Halos Pitchforks

&

Spotlight on Trevon Guevara

A reader sends a halo to the Artist Studio Tour Committee, who did an amazing, bang-up job this year. “We had record-breaking numbers of participants.”

By Kim Drain

life on May 3.

It’s not always easy to make the leap from high school to the real world, but Trevon Guevara was more than ready. Admittedly, Guevara was neither inspired, nor dedicated, to the school work at hand. But one class in particular sparked his interest; the landscaping class taught by former ag teacher Holly Miller. “It was a chance for me to use my imagination and design things I’ve only dreamt about building,” Guevara recalls. That revelation proved to be a pivotal moment as Guevara considered careers that would utilize his creativity and strength, yet provide a good living as well. “Once I got past the teen years, I had to get serious,” Guevara said as he contemplated his future. Occupation: Roofer with Carpinteria Valley Roofing, and freelance landscaper. How long have you been in Carpinteria? I grew up in Santa Barbara, but I have lived in Carpinteria with my family for about 8 years. I hope to move back to Santa Barbara soon. What is the best thing about being in the construction trade? I really enjoy meeting all the customers and seeing all the different styles of homes around the area. I like meeting other people in the trades, too, and establishing a good network of builders and roofers. What is the most challenging thing about being in the construction trade? Trying not to get injured! I’m a rookie, learning on the job. I have to be extra careful not to cut myself or fall so I can keep working! What new skill would you like to learn? I’d like to get licensed to operate a CAT and other equipment like tractors and bulldozers. The more skills I learn, the easier it will be to someday build my dream house. How do you like to spend your free time? I run my dogs, Bandit and Lady, every day. I like to hang out with my friends and play basketball. There is really not much for young people to do in Carp. Where do you see yourself in five years? I’m young. I don’t want to settle down until I have a good solid job. But, you never know! I’m open to whatever comes along. I have a lot of ideas about things I want to create and build and I’m going to keep working towards that. What is the best advice you have ever received, or have given? I didn’t take high school very seriously. Now, when I see kids out on the street during the school day, I tell them, “Hey, get back to class.” Kids may not like school at times, but it’s important to do it right. When you become an adult, the rules come hard, so you have to be prepared. Describe yourself in one word: Mellow. Kim Drain moved with her family from San Francisco to Carpinteria over a decade ago. Since then, she has been intrigued by the small town charm of Carpinteria. She loves to uncover the hidden gems here, such as the people, whose lives and jobs intersect to make this community thrive.

A reader sends a halo to the efficient, caring crew at the Carpinteria Fire Station, led by Captain Brooks, for saving the reader’s husband’s

A reader sends a halo to Michael at Verizon, who always helps the reader with any cell phone problems she might have. “Thank you, Michael, for always being so kind and patient with an elderly lady. I appreciate you.” A reader sends a halo to the Curtis Studio Competition Team for the awesome job they did at the LA Tremaine Competition. “You girls rocked that stage and should be very proud of yourselves. You’re a great group of young ladies.” A reader sends a halo to Aliso School librarian Mrs. Soto for treating the reader’s daughter to lunch. “What a special treat and something she really needed right now. She especially loved going off campus.” A reader sends a halo to the teenaged boy who brings his dog, Marley, to Memorial Park every day for exercise. “This kid is a model pet owner.” A reader sends a halo to the amazingly generous parents at Aliso School for all of the wonderful gifts, treats and lunch for the teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week. “We feel very appreciated. Thank you.” A reader sends a halo to Leanne and Frank Rose for putting their life on hold to help with the reader’s daughter’s wedding. “Because of them my daughter had a perfect day.” A reader sends a halo to the California Women For Agriculture for their annual Mother’s Day sale to benefit high school agricultural students. “They have such beautiful flowers and lovely plants and fruit for reasonable prices.” A reader sends a halo to his sister, Krystal Martinez, for making the SBCC President’s Honor Roll. “We are so proud of you.” A reader sends a halo to the lady who picks up trash in the morning every week on Via Real and Bailard Avenue. A reader sends a halo to Gandrud Financial Services for accepting his tax returns at the last minute and providing excellent service and feedback at a very reasonable rate. A reader sends a halo to Carpinteria Morning Rotary, Lions and other clubs for helping to get the Boys & Girls Club auction ready all day Saturday. “We appreciate all you do to support the local club.” A reader sends a pitchfork to the Carpinteria Post Office. “They are always out of rolls of stamps. I buy stamps every month or so, and they are repeatedly out and usually don’t have them coming in for a ‘few days.’” A reader sends a pitchfork to all those people who say they are going to show up for a friend’s birthday party and then flake. “You all had plenty of notice and some talked to me that day and flaked.

Richter musicians play spring recital

Students of music teacher Marti Richter played their annual spring recital on Sunday, May 4 at her studio in Toro Canyon. Nineteen of her students were able to attend and perform for the appreciative audience comprised of siblings, parents, grandparents and friends. Students played a diversity of music, such as “I Never Told You” by Colbie Caillat and Kara dioGuardi, “Piano Man” by Billy Joel and some usual favorites like “Somewhere over the Rainbow.” They followed with a reception on Richter’s patio where the crowd mingled and enjoyed pizza.

Amrit Joy’s Hints for Healthy & Happy Living Breath easy

What is free, always available and can help you to heal? It’s right under your nose. Yes, it’s your breath. In yoga, there are many different Pranayamas (breathing techniques). The main one that is used with your asanas (postures) is the long, deep breath, also called “diaphragmatic breathing.” It is done as follows: Sit up nice and straight, firm yet comfortable. Imagine an invisible gold thread coming out of the top of your head, gently pulling you upwards. Place your hands at your belly with the middle fingers touching at the fingertips. Close your eyes and close your mouth. Inhale through your nostrils. Your nostrils will filter and warm your breath. As you inhale, the breath comes through the nostrils and hits the back of the throat. Then as your diaphragm expands, the belly puffs out like a balloon and the middle fingers, that are touching, will slightly separate. There is a slight pause or gap at the end of your breath. Now when you begin to exhale, the belly will deflate as the breath empties and the middle fingers will touch again. Practice this for a few minutes every day. Your breath will become very comforting and familiar to you. The capacity of your lungs will begin to increase. As you inhale, you take in prana (“life force”) and fresh oxygen. This goes to all the cells, organs and glands in your body. As you exhale, you release stress, toxins and negativity. The more you practice the more you can “take in” and ”let go.” The healing will happen, bringing you peace, good health, energy, clarity and serenity. Amrit Joy is a certified Hatha and Kundalini Yoga instructor. She has been practicing and teaching yoga since 1976. Amrit offers ongoing group yoga classes open to all levels here in Carpinteria. Private instruction in yoga and meditation is also available by appointment. For more information, call Amrit Joy at 745-1707 or visit amritjoy.com.

carpe carpinteria Summer Solstice is around the corner, which means long, sandy days at the beach are in the forecast. Being part of a family of beach lovers and married to an avid surfer, I’ve seen my fair share of beach tar and sand. I don’t consider myself a neat freak, but, honestly, sand-filled bathing suits, salty wetsuits and tar-covered feet are best kept outside. One of the first and best things we added to our house when we bought it was an outdoor shower. It started out as a fairly primitive amenity but has evolved over the years to be a well respected and established component of our house. Better than throwing a hose over a fence and rinsing off, an outside shower can be built fairly easily as a weekend project. The first step is finding just the right spot. The two main considerations are privacy and drainage. Find a space at your house that is fairly flat or drains away from the house itself. If a private spot cannot be located, privacy screens can be incorporated into your design. My brother has created a unique driftwood wall outside his alfresco shower that is beautiful, shelters him from the wind and neighboring lookie loo’s. Galvanized metal, wood or cast concrete are all possibilities for walling your space in; keep in mind, if you are using wood, that some sort of waterproofing is a must for the long term life of your shower. Incorporating specific hedge plants such as ficus nitida, eugenia or pittosporum as green walls can help you create privacy and add more green to your landscape. Using organic, biodegradable soaps and shampoos will help keep those green screens well watered without using additional water resources. After you have found the best location, the next decision is what your “floor” will be. A simple boardwalk type structure with wood planking spaced evenly apart will create a level, firm place to stand. The water should then drain into gravel or beach rocks below. We made rudimentary concrete pavers with beach glass embedded in them to keep that beach feeling all the way into the shower. Proximity to the existing plumbing will help move your shower project through the weekend. I don’t profess to knowing the how-to’s, but the internet is chock-full of the nuts and bolts of the plumbing process. The materials are easy to find, inexpensive and can be put together with basic tools. Once your structure is built, amenities such as hooks for your towels, bathing suits, wetsuits, etc. are useful additions. Our soap dish is an abalone shell found at the beach. Use what you have, be creative and enjoy knowing that you are back in nature just as you arrived—bare naked!

making it.” Multiple teachers said they’ve taken on second and third jobs to support themselves. CMS teacher Leigh Ann Swarm said that while waiting on a raise she has added jobs. “Here we are at 2014, and I am maxed out,” she said. Her own student loans that she has deferred during these lean times haven’t gone away, and, she argued, “The CoLA that the district has deferred for many years shouldn’t just go away.” Longtime boardmember Terry Hickey Banks assured the teachers that “All staff is appreciated. You may not feel it, but we do appreciate you.” She said that negotiations are still in progress, but that with the 3 percent CoLA now being considered, the district is projected to face deficit spending over the next few years. Teachers were identified earlier in the meeting as key allies in a potential campaign for a November school facilities bond measure. Swarm pointed out that good teachers make the district great, not good facilities. Aliso School teacher Gretchen Tofflemire told the board, “I will not vote for the bond or publicly support it if my property taxes go up to the point where I have to take a cut to my salary.” ––Lea Boyd

Family School, Summerland both decorate district with distinguished honor BY PETER DUGRÉ

Carpinteria’s two smallest schools, and highest scoring on the Academic Performance Index, received word recently that they can hang signs out front stating that they are California Distinguished Schools, an honor bestowed on the best of the best schools in the state. In order to achieve the designation, Carpinteria Family School, which is housed on the Canalino School campus, and Summerland School had to place in the top 10 percent of schools statewide in API and to prove the implementation of two signature practices that have driven the high state test scores. Principals of both schools were excited to gain the distinguished label, and both touted the schools’ philosophies and community oriented identities for garnering the selections. CFS is built on the philosophy that parents will be involved in the classroom and teaches everyone in the school community to use compassionate communication. “That’s what’s so exciting about (the designation)—our school has a philosophy, and it worked, socially, emotionally and academically,” commented principal Leslie Gravitz. In applying for the honor, the school highlighted its family-community partnership and its use of standards for assessment and decision making as its signature practices. Gravitz said the practices are part and parcel of the school’s success and its mission to teach the whole child. The school’s education model enlists project-based, hands-on learning. Both schools received visitations from state representatives who conducted extensive interviews. Summerland School similarly focused on parent and community involvement as one of its signature practices, along with its use of professional learning communities to enable data driven instruction. Principal Holly Minear said the small school depends on its parents and Summerland community partners to help it maintain its variety of programs, like the all-school play that will be staged this month. Minear said she was “thrilled,” adding, “because it’s such a small school, the community and families rally around the school and pitch in and provide their time to make so much of what we do possible.” The school has benefited from standardizing its assessments to match those of other teachers in the district in order to have comparable data sets across classrooms. When teachers meet in professional learning communities they can compare strategies and results.

Former volleyball coach Rick Olmstead won a high school CIF title and SBCC state title as coach and will be inducted into the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Hall of Fame on May 19.

Rick Olmstead’s volleyball legacy reaches far and wide

As Santa Barbara High School’s first ever volleyball coach, Carpinterian Rick Olmstead wasted no time putting the program on the map. The burgeoning squad won the CIF title in 1978, soon after its creation. Karch Kiraly, widely known as the greatest volleyball player ever, played for Olmstead and the Dons during that title run and fondly recalls the coach’s influence. Olmstead then coached SBCC to a state title in 1983. His combined coaching record was 347-125. According to the SBART bio on Olmstead, Kiraly said: “I learned a ton from Rick Olmstead, an incredible coach,” Kiraly once told local sports writer John Zant. “I’ve written a few of his sayings up on the white board, like: ‘Excuses are like armpits; everybody’s got them and they all stink.’ Sometimes he used a different word from armpits. If we were not playing to the level he thought we were capable of playing, he would get us to realize that even if the other team wasn’t that good, we can’t lower ourselves. He’s been an influence in terms of trying to be the best prepared team.” Olmstead is well connected in volleyball circles and served as referee for approximately 1,800 college volleyball matches since 1975. He became a regular referee at pro beach volleyball events starting in 1985. A father of seven children, Ginger, Laci, Shawn, Heather, Nicole, Karalee and Brooke, Olmstead’s volleyball influence now has a place at Brigham Young University, where son Shawn coaches the women’s team along with assistant coach Heather, Rick’s daughter. Olmstead said above all, his greatest honor and feather in his cap was a refereeing experience at the 2001 NCAA championship in Long Beach. His son, Shawn, played on eventual national champion BYU. Even though the conflict of interest was glaring, all four coaches from the final teams wanted Olmstead as an official. “All four coaches trusted my ability and my integrity. That was a great honor,” Olmstead said.

Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Hall of Fame Banquet Monday, May 19, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Fess Parker Double Tree Resort Student tickets $40; adults $50 • Sbroundtable.org

Leader of the high-octane 2013 Warrior football squad, quarterback Ian Craddock, will take the stage at the SBART banquet to receive his high school football Player of the Year honor. He accounted for 27 touchdowns, 49 extra points and six field goals as the team’s point scoring machine. Whether he was slinging the ball down field to his favorite targets or tucking it away and running, Craddock stymied defenses all season. In 12 games, he completed 106-of-159 passes for 1,663 yards. He averaged 139 passing yards per game and threw 15 touchdown passes to just six interceptions. He also rushed for 737 yards and 12 touchdowns. On defense, Craddock was a formidable free safety, intercepting five passes. As the team’s place kicker, he made all 49 extra point attempts. And he was 6-of-7 in field goals and booted a 47-yarder through the uprights. The senior’s numbers will be hard to match for any future Warriors.

Bryant shines as best high school girls tennis player

Kelsie Bryant outgunned 67-of-68 players who lined up on the other side of the net from her during Carpinteria High School girls tennis’s 2013 championship run. Her one loss was in a tiebreak during the CIF semifinals. Perhaps more amazingly, she only lost 12 games all season, a majority of which came in the one dropped set. Bryant captained the team, along with Natalie Saito, and instilled work ethic and dedication in her teammates, which enabled the repeat championship. Her dad and coach, Charles Bryant said, “Tennis, for the most part, is an individual sport, but high school tennis turns into a team sport, and I know Kelsie’s greatest victories were the team victories, specifically being in the CIF finals for three straight years and winning the last two.” Kelsie’s versatility allows her to adjust to any style of opponent, and in her junior season she came into true form as an allcourt player. Bryant, a noted good sport in both tennis and soccer, will also be honored as CHS’s Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award winner at the banquet.

BILL SWING

Kelsie Bryant has posted two consecutive 67-1 seasons and team CIF championships. Now the junior will be recognized as the girls tennis Player of the Year.

Gordon, Galsterer to be honored academics

CHS seniors Hannah Galsterer and Duncan Gordon will gain recognition for their stratospheric grade point averages. Gordon, a football, basketball and baseball player will be honored as CHS’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Galsterer, a basketball and softball captain, will receive the Round Table’s Founder’s Scholarship toward her education at San Diego State University. Gordon will attend UC Irvine in the fall.

Baseball

Cate School

May 7 – Cate baseball shut out rival Thacher School, 3-0, in a home, Condor League match. The Rams hit the ball hard all game, according to assistant coach Dave Soto, but could not cash in on the solid contact until a three-run sixth inning. The earlier hit balls found Thacher gloves too often. Dean Smith knocked Max Vasquez home with a single, after Vasquez had entered the game as a pinch runner for Ryan Baird. Nik Pajouh swatted a double to score Smith before Chris Oh singled home Pajouh. Humza Khurshid pitched five innings, striking out seven and surrendering just two hits. Joel Revo closed out the game and got the win on two strikeouts and two hits. “What a funky game. We hit the ball hard all over the field all game, but found ourselves in a tight battle late. I’m proud of the resilience we showed,” Soto commented. The team improved to 9-4 overall and 4-0 in Condor League.

Swimming

May 8 – Cate girls swimmers finished third, and the boys finished second at TriValley League championships held at Villanova Prep. In the process, Sophia Soriano and Zach Allen set Cate School records. Soriano won the 100 breast stroke with her record-breaking swim, and Allen set his record while winning the 100 butterfly. Allen also won the 200 freestyle. Tamsyn Walker won the 100 freestyle for the girls squad. The varsity girls 400 free relay team—Anna Satterfield, Lydia Stevens, Ally Satterfield, Soriano—also set a record by breaking the four minute mark for the first time in school history.

Warrior coach Ray Gonzales signals for Scarlett Pettine to head to second base for a double. Pettine scored two of the Warriors’ four runs in a 4-2 league victory over Santa Clara High School. May 8 – Warrior softball won 4-2 at home against Santa Clara High School. Natalie Saito pitched the five-hitter for the win. Trailing 2-0 in the fourth, Scarlett Pettine doubled, and Saito singled in Pettine. Teagan Singer singled to score Saito, who had reached second on the throw to the plate. Then to break the tie in the sixth, Pettine started things off again with a single. Sierra Diaz bunt singled, leading to a throwing error that scored Pettine and advanced Diaz to third base. Saito singled in Diaz. The Warriors had 10 hits. “We played solid defense and effective offense to come from behind and get the win,” commented coach Henry Gonzales.

Carpinteria High School

May 7 – Warrior baseball walked off with a win after entering the seventh inning down 2-1 against visiting Fillmore High School. Jonah Spach got a two-strike hit to ignite the rally. He moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Mo Sanchez, and scored on Javier Jasso’s two-strike hit. Duncan Gordon drew an intentional walk, and Kevin Stein slapped a two-strike ground ball single between short and third to score Jasso, the winning run. Warrior starting pitcher David Martinez surrendered just an unearned run in his three innings of work, and Salvador Delgado matched the effort over the next three innings. Nick Walker pitched a scoreless seventh inning while striking out two to collect the win. “Obviously, an exciting win that each of the players deserve to enjoy. They showed a great deal of poise throughout. ... Add a little luck to the little things and the Warriors come away with a good team win,” commented coach Pat Cooney. Connor Kelsey was the only Warrior with multiple hits. May 9 – Frontier League baseball will come down to the wire, as did the Warriors’ 4-3 loss at Fillmore High School, which locked both teams (5-3) into a four-way tie for first place. The Warriors had led 3-2 before the Flashes turned the tables on the Warriors, who had won the game two days earlier with a walk-off victory of their own. Warrior pitcher Mo Sanchez threw the complete game but lost. In the seventh inning, the Flashes loaded the bases with no outs, and Sanchez induced two ground balls. The first secured an out at home, and the second did the same before catcher Kevin Stein relayed the ball to first base for the potential double play, but the ball trickled away, and two Flashes scored on the error. Sanchez scattered two hits and surrendered zero earned runs. He also batted 2-for-3 with a solo homerun in the third inning. Nick Walker was also 2 for 3 with a steal. The Warriors got the go ahead run in the seventh on a lead off single by Stein. A sac bunt by Sal Delgado moved him to second, followed by a Walker hit and a sacrifice fly by David Martinez. “We really did do every single thing to win except secure the final play. ... I cannot recall being that close to a win without getting it,” commented coach Pat Cooney.

Alumni defeat Warriors in baseball

A six-run ninth inning led to a Carpinteria High School alumni baseball 8-2 victory over the current Warriors at John Calderwood Field on May 10. On a day when the CHS baseball program celebrated the 40-year anniversary of the 1974 CIF championship squad, the alumni broke a 0-0 stalemate in the fifth inning by plating two runs, the same way that 1974 team used a two-run fifth to capture the 2-0 victory over Brethren. Nathan Saito, class of 2009, hit a two-run homerun to break the ice. The current Warriors, however, scored three runs to take a 3-2 advantage into the ninth inning. But in the final inning, tired Warrior pitching arms were overcome by alumni power. Ten members of the 1974 squad tossed out first pitches to kick off the festivities. The Warrior Band played the National Anthem to start the game off, and coach Pat Cooney’s children sang “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning stretch. Fun pairs of Warrior relatives pitted against each other included Warrior senior Mo Sanchez against his brother Tony (class of 2009) and father John (1981). Chris Kelsey (1982) coached first base for the alumni, while son Connor played at first for the Warriors. Dave Crooks served as home plate umpire, while sons Kyle (2003) and Patrick (2004) played for the alumni, and alumni slugger Nathan Murillo (2002) matched up against his cousin, sophomore Diego Contreras.

Warrior volleyball hosts first ever playoff

The Carpinteria High School boys volleyball team hosted its first CIF playoff match in school history against the Roadrunners of Saddleback High School on May 10 but lost 3-1 (25-21, 24-26, 25-20, 25-16). The home wildcard match, which was hastily scheduled for the at-large Warrior squad, caused schedule conflicts that led to the Warriors playing without two regular starters. Freshman Andrew Hipple and Mayerik Rodriguez were called up for the occasion. The Warriors were led by Mason Picerni, who had a school-record 22 kills, Luis Ceja, who had 12 kills, and Jesus Ortega, who had 37 assists. Libero Victor Garcia did a great job passing and digging, noted Coach Marc Denitz. The Warriors finish their season with an 8-8 record.

duncan’s reel deal MATT DUNCAN With all of the recent chatter about a certain boat movie of Biblical proportions that everyone seems to know and care so much about, some other movies may have slipped under your radar. There is one about bears, several about superheroes and a couple of others about creepy children who may or may not be demon possessed. Then there is a baseball movie with Kevin Costner and a cartoon sequel. Yes, indeed, there are many nonboat movies to be seen and maybe even talked about. But let me recommend one such movie: “Under the Skin.” Warning: This movie is arty and weird. It is not like the superhero movies, the creepy-kid movies, the cartoon sequels, or the boat movie. I say thank God for that. But really I’m just letting you know. In “Under the Skin,” an alien who is fixed up to look just like a human (Scarlett Johansson) rides around Scotland in a van picking up men who she seduces and then kills. We have no idea what sort of alien she is, what her motives are or even what she is up to or how she is doing what she is doing. Everything is as perplexing and foreign to us as our world must be to her. And the world certainly is perplexing and foreign to her. In one of the first scenes of the movie, the cold and lifeless body of an anonymous dead woman is laid out in front of the alien on the vacant floor of a brightly backlit room. A tear falls from the dead woman’s eye. The alien reaches down as if to wipe the tear away—as if to show compassion—but instead she scoops up an ant that was crawling on the body and carefully examines it as if under a microscope. The ant is what is noteworthy to her. How peculiar it must be to her—how novel and curious. This is how the alien sees the world. She has her mission, and she knows how to carry it out. But, as is made clear through various wonderfully executed cinematic techniques, this entity is indeed alien—she is foreign; this is not her home; she is out of place; nothing makes sense to her. This is also true of us, the audience. Bewilderment is something we share with the alien—that, and the skin that covers

our bodies. As time goes on the alien grows more accustomed to the human exterior that envelops her. She maybe even starts to think human thoughts and feel human feelings. But this is no fable about diversity or the coming together of different peoples. “Under the Skin” is way darker and, really, just way more nuanced and complex than that. I’m not sure what all is going on in “Under the Skin.” There are other movies where I’m not sure what is going on and I think it’s because not much is really going on—it’s just that the director thinks he or she is really smart and deep so he or she makes a movie that looks really smart and deep but it is just pretentious and lame. “Under the Skin” is not one of those movies. A lot is going on here. But I’m just not sure, at least at this point, what all it is. What I can tell you is that this movie will seep in—it will get under your skin. You will leave the theater still looking out at a strange and unfamiliar world that you see every day but which is suddenly new, foreign, challenging and confusing. “Under the Skin” is rated R for graphic nudity, sexual content, some violence and language. Matt Duncan, a former Coastal View News Editor, has taken physical but not emotional leave from Carpinteria to attend University of Virginia for a graduate degree in philosophy. In his free time from philosophizing, Duncan enjoys strumming on the mandolin, watching movies, updating his movie review blog, duncansreeldeal.blogspot.com and writing for ReelGuys.net.

Carpe diem

Seize the day, smell the roses, enjoy yourself because it’s later than you think—we’ve all heard these sayings so many times their meaning often gets lost in their familiarity. As I age, each day seems to be a few minutes shorter than the day before, each week goes by a little faster, and let’s not even think about a year. When I was a very young girl (think Elvis and The Beatles), it took MELINDA forever for me to get to the age of 21. Then it took about 20 minutes for me to get to 40 and about 10 seconds to reach 60. As I realize how quickly life speeds by, I am struck by what a treasure each moment truly is. This is not brain surgery, but really how often do all our shoulds interfere with our wants? The house has to be clean, the lawn mowed, the dishes washed. I’ll take that walk later, after I sort out my tax documents. Or I’ll have a picnic on the beach after I’ve cleaned out my closet. Or I’ll take that trip to Tahiti after I pull all the weeds in my yard. Of course, I do enjoy the satisfaction of getting a job done, but I might even enjoy it more if some of these jobs were done by someone else. Or maybe I could just

ignore the tax season, the cluttered closet and the weeds and get on with the fun part of each day. There is one thing (actually two things) that have entered my life and convinced me over and over that the time to do things is now. I have two young grandsons who show me daily how to have fun. One will take my hand, pull me outside and want to race. The other WITTWER one will want just one more book to be read. And both will want to help bake— and eat—cookies. Very young children do not have much patience with putting off the doing of fun things. I’ve also learned that giggles and songs and hugs are surefire mood lifters. Now, it’s no surprise that my house is cleaner, quieter and much less chaotic without the two munchkins running around. But it’s also much less spontaneous, much less sparkly. So, if given the choice, I think it’s a no-brainer to go with the sparkly. Watching these two grow and change so quickly also reinforces my concept of “do it now – don’t wait.” Today my grandsons enjoy doing simple things with me; I’m not sure this will be the case when they’re in

a monthly muse

junior high. Of course, not everyone has adorable young grandchildren to highlight the notion that life is to be enjoyed, and all enjoyment certainly does not revolve around preschoolers. And, believe it or not, not everyone enjoys doing the same things. But we all can infuse each day with treasured moments. After all, those roses won’t bloom forever so enjoy them now. Friends won’t live forever so make a lunch date this week. And chocolate won’t last forever so eat it, or share it, while it’s still available in your pantry. I’m a firm believer in “the bucket list.” I keep adding to mine—places I want to SEAFOOD LOBSTERI visit,STEAKS people I•want to meet,• activities want to share with familyPLATE, and friends, SALAD BAR & KID’S TOO! and things I want to accomplish. Who says I can’t write the next great American novel or learn a foreign language or live in a beach cottage in Hawaii? But first I’m going to have a cup of coffee and call my friend in Ventura. Then I want to finish watching “Downton Abbey” and take a long walk along the beach—all this before heading out for dinner and a movie. As I said, these days keep getting shorter and shorter.

on the road Feel Good Friends do D.C.

Jane Benefield and Al and Amy Orozco joined local travel group Feel Good Friends on a recent trip to Washington D.C. They stayed in a townhouse across from the Library of Congress and attended a U.S. Supreme Court Session. The travelers also connected with Congresswoman Lois Capps’ office, which they credited with arranging tickets for their tours of the White House and House of Representative. Their walking tour—six plus hours per day—was in line with the blooming of the cherry blossoms and steeped in American History and iconic food at Ben’s Chili Bowl.

20-year-old CVN joins U20 national team When Coastal View News joined John Requejo Jr. and his grandfather, Ricardo Requejo, in Dallas, Texas, for the Men’s U20 Dallas Cup, the 20-year-old community newspaper shared an age in common with players who gathered from around the world. Requejo Jr. played defense for the U.S. national team at the tournament and helped the team win its way into the championship round. The U.S. defeated River Plate of Argentina in the first game of the tournament before losing to them in the championship. Requejo Jr. will play at UCLA next fall.
