Moorhouse retires after 21 years on Sanitary District Board

After nearly 21 years as a director of the Carpinteria Sanitary District, Jeff Moorhouse attended his final regular board meeting on Feb. 6. Moorhouse was appointed to the five-member board of directors on June 3, 1997 and he has held office continuously since that time, including serving several terms as board president. During his tenure, the district constructed a state-of-the-art, award-winning wastewater treatment facility and sewer collection system, both of which are repeatedly recognized as the very best in the State of California by the California Water Environment Association. Moorhouse is also leaving the district on a firm fiscal footing, having lent his expertise as a financial planner to the board and committees over the past two decades. Moorhouse served on the Executive Board of the California Association of Sanitation Agency, a statewide organization, for many years including one year as president in 2016. In that capacity, Moorhouse helped found and develop the CASA Education Foundation, which now provides college scholarships for individuals aspiring to enter the clean water industry. He has also been actively involved in the California Special Districts Association and has served many years on the executive board of the Santa Barbara County Chapter of CSDA. In 2010, Moorhouse was elected to serve as a Commissioner on the Santa Barbara Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) and has contributed in this important oversight role for local government since that time. “(Moorhouse) is the epitome of a public servant,” said Craig Murray, CSD’s General Manager. “The amount of time and energy he has contributed on behalf of the District and its ratepayers over the past 20 years is truly invaluable. We thank him and wish him the best in his future endeavors.” CSD will begin a recruitment process to appoint a new Director to fill the vacant board seat. Visit carpsan.com for more details.

Offering free group therapy sessions for anyone impacted by the recent disasters, the Carpinteria Thomas Disaster Community Support Group will be held for four Saturdays from Feb. 10 through March 3 midmorning at the Carpinteria Children’s Project, 5201 8th Street. The support group will be guided by a licensed therapist and will give individuals an opportunity to share their experiences with others who may have gone through similar circumstances. “It has been a tremendously difficult time for so many members of our community who are working to move forward from the Thomas Disaster,” said David Selberg, CEO of Hospice of Santa Barbara. “But our Compassionate Care of Carpinteria staff are grateful to be able to offer this support group to Carpinteria residents, who we hope will see this as a way to continue forward in the healing process.” Pre-registration is required. For more information or to pre-register, call 563-8820 x110 or visit hospiceofsantabarbara.org.

Awards Banquet rescheduled for March 10

The Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce announced Saturday, March 10, as the new date for the 60th Annual Community Awards Banquet. Postponed from January due to the recent natural disasters, the event will not only honor its traditional array of outstanding Carpinterians, but first-responder heroes as well. Ticket holders will enjoy a 5 p.m. cocktail hour with a hosted wine and beer bar, and a 7 p.m. buffet dinner and program recognizing honorees. Tickets are $100 each. To purchase tickets, visit carpinteriachamber.org.

iPower to offer free iCloud class

iPower Resale will host a free class on Apple’s iCloud system—what it is, and how and why to use it—on Thursday, March 1, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at 4185 Carpinteria Ave., Suite 3. Included in the class will be a complimentary iCloud check on a portable iOS or macOS device (i.e. iPhone or a MacBook Pro) that attendees bring in. Space is limited and should be reserved by calling 745-8587.

SB County cats can be spayed for $1

In honor of Spay Day USA, Santa Barbara County pet owners can spay or neuter their cats for $1 throughout the month of February. “$1 today keeps the Kittens at bay” is a special program offered by the Responsible Pet Ownership Alliance through which the $1 spay or neuter comes with a free a rabies vaccination. Spaying or neutering cats can prevent the birth of unwanted litters and decrease cat populations in local neighborhoods and animal shelters. The special price will apply to the first 200 cat owners who make an appointment. Participating shelters that are closest to Carpinteria are Santa Barbara Humane Society, 964-4777, and C.A.R.E. 4Paws, 968-2273.

“Life is sudden, unpredictable and fragile”

Remembering Caroline Grace Montgomery By MelindA Burns When she was a senior and star swimmer at cate school in carpinteria, caroline Montgomery lost a close friend, nick Johnson, a ucsB water polo player whom she had trained with. During a routine workout, he blacked out and died. in Johnson’s honor, Montgomery gave a speech at cate, saying he had inspired her to write a “personal anthem.” she spoke about the brevity of life: “elite aquatic athletes aren’t supposed to drown … but really, is there a way any of us are supposed to die? and when we inevitably do, are we going to be proud of what we have accomplished?” Montgomery then read aloud her “anthem,” pledging to live with “compassion, honesty and dependability” and “create my reputation as someone with strong character.” she was to live only four more years. Montgomery and her father, Mark, a noted hand surgeon, both perished in the catastrophic debris flow that engulfed their Montecito home on Jan. 9. caroline had been visiting from Barnard college, a women’s liberal arts school in new york city where she was a senior. she and her brother Duffy, 20, and their father were swept away in a river of mud and boulders, and only Duffy survived; caroline died in his arms as he comforted her. she was 22 years old. “all of us are pretty crushed,” said r. Wade ransom, the director of athletics at cate. “it’s just a family we were all very close with. it’s devastating.” even as a student at cate, caroline Montgomery already had a reputation as “someone with strong character.” she was warm and smiling, but she was a tough kid, perfect for the sports world, ransom said. Montgomery remains one of the best swimmers in the women’s 500-yard freestyle in cate history; in her junior year, she helped lift the school to a league championship. During her senior year, Montgomery was captain of the women’s water polo team; they won the first playoffs game for

Caroline Grace Montgomery Aug. 16, 1995 – Jan. 9, 2018 cate in 20 years. Montgomery graduated from cate with 11 varsity letters, a rare feat. the highest possible number is 12. “there wasn’t anything caroline wasn’t good at,” ransom said. “she was just tenacious, a really, really hard worker, the type of worker that made everybody around her better. Water polo is a contact sport. caroline was a tiny kid and

held her own every step of the way. you were drawn to her ability in the pool to orchestrate and score, whenever the team needed her to make a play.” ivan Barry, Montgomery’s history teacher and swim coach at cate, said she rose early and put in extra hours at the pool to develop stamina and speed. in her application to Barnard, he said, she wrote about her desire to make her mark as a female leader and role mode—a goal she had already achieved, helping younger teammates. “she was just a bright light here at cate,” Barry said. “she had a wonderful balance of light-heartedness and joy of life, but a gritty and determined side to her as well. When you placed high expectations in front of her, she worked incredibly hard to meet them.” in new york, the columbia univer-

sity Women’s club Water Polo team is dedicating their season to Montgomery’s memory. “the team has been affected immensely by this loss,” said amy gong liu, club president. “caroline was immensely talented and a natural leader in and out of the pool. she and i would exchange wordless glances during games and we would know exactly what we wanted the other to do. she threw 100 percent of herself into everything that she did.” Montgomery majored in psychology at Barnard; she was doing research on exploitative medical practices under colonialism and slavery, her professors said. “she was a practical idealist,” said Janet Jakobsen, a professor of women’s, gender and sexuality studies. “she wrote, ‘i believe that hard work and care and dedication can produce a better world.’” Montgomery took two years of chinese; wrote for Hoot, the Barnard fashion magazine, and held several fashion internships in new york city, including one as a buyer for Kith, a trendy streetgear retailer. she dreamed of a career in the industry. “you couldn’t peg her,” said ann senghas, a psychology professor and Montgomery’s advisor. “she was an activist and a feminist. she did fashion. she did water polo, but she wasn’t a jock. she was a very strong writer. she really explored. she was not the kind of student who sweated about getting an a in everything. “she was captivating. it’s not that she happened to be that way; she thought about what she was doing, and why.” at the funeral for caroline and her father last month, the family played the video of her speech at cate in 2014. there she was, urging her classmates to “write your own anthem, to have a beat that you can march to… it shows you who you want to be and what you want to be able to say you’ve accomplished, because life is sudden, unpredictable and fragile.” “it was a stunning moment,” David Montgomery, caroline’s uncle, said. “she was trying to remind all of us how precious life is and rally us to continue living it to the fullest without her. Does anything say more clearly what the world has lost?” caroline is survived by her mother, catherine; her brother, Duffy, and her sister, Kate. Donations may be sent to the Mark and caroline Montgomery Memorial foundation at the santa Barbara foundation. Melinda Burns is a freelance journalist based in Santa Barbara.

Procore pledges proactivity in parking squeeze Company to launch new electric shuttle to bring employees to town

By Peter Dugré The eastern end of Carpinteria avenue is having an identity crisis. While excitement has built over the new land preserve, the persistent presence of cars lining the road has marred the natural environment intended for recreation and natural restoration. Those scores of cars belong to employees of Procore, the booming cloud-based software company that has aspirations to corner the global construction industry and that now employs an astounding 700 people in Carpinteria. The city is at a crossroads because the parking blight is obvious both on Carpinteria avenue and at the Viola Fields public lot, but Procore has become the largest employer and is still growing. The city and company have met and agree that the status quo can’t continue, so Procore has announced a series of actions it is taking to alleviate the parking crunch. “We’ve tried to attack (the parking issue) from all angles,” said Procore Facilities Director scott Moitoza. “The one thing we don’t have is a Procore ferry—yet.” The splashiest move that Procore is trumpeting is a new electric shuttle that will begin running downtown on Feb. 12. Procore is set to lease about 80 unused parking spots at GranVida senior living community and has purchased the 20seat fully electric shuttle to run employees up and down Carpinteria avenue. The shuttle will also bring employees into downtown Carpinteria to eat and run errands. Procore Communications Director Doug Madey said the custom ride was painted to incorporate the city’s beach vibe for maximum appeal. “I love Procore orange, but we wanted it to be less obtrusive and to better blend into the city,” Madey said. He also said look for plenty of Procore’s signature orange on the backpacks and T-shirts of employees patronizing shops and restaurants downtown.

So much growth, so few parking spots

Procore reached out to Coastal View News following a report that city leaders had discussed the ongoing issues on Carpinteria avenue and at Viola Fields. City Manager Dave Durflinger has met with Procore management, both to talk about parking and to tour the city’s largest employer. Durflinger, at the city’s Annual Work Meeting on Jan. 27, said that pressuring Procore is a bit of a tightrope

DuGré

Procore employees check out the new electric shuttle that will begin looping between Procore and granVida on Feb. 12. walk, because it’s in the city’s best interest to remain friendly to retain the growing company, which has established offices all over the country and internationally, including in austin, Texas and australia. If Carpinteria brings the hammer down too hard, it could rock the boat, but Durflinger said the grace period cannot go on forever and the two organizations have had productive talks. Procore wanted to talk. Madey said he abhors the parking situation, and the company has gone as far as issuing a video from its CEo to employees telling them to quit parking illegally. although there are only 300 spots available at the main campus overlooking the ocean, Procore has leased and remodeled property on the mountain side of the freeway. according to Moitoza, there are plenty of spots for overflow off of Cindy Lane, but the issue is getting people to park over there and ride the existing shuttle to work. Madey said they’ve tried everything,

but have been unable to force employees to buy into the shuttle that runs from Cindy lane over to the main Carpinteria avenue campus. The new electric shuttle running from GranVida should be more appealing he said, because the employees want to be able to access downtown. Currently, with limited spots on campus that are available through a permitting system and to carpoolers, people are reluctant to give up their spots to head downtown. If they’re parked at Viola Fields or up Carpinteria avenue or on Cindy lane, it’s time consuming to go get the car, head out to eat or run errands, return, park and scramble back to work. “If you’re one of the 400 people who don’t have a parking pass, you can imagine it’s hard getting downtown for lunch,” Madey said. other solutions that Procore has tried are a shuttle from santa Barbara to Carpinteria specifically for workers. They also plan to do a Ventura pick-up in the near future, and they encourage biking

Karlsson

With just 300 parking spaces for 700 employees, Procore has struggled to wean its staff off the next-easiest parking along Carpinteria Avenue.

and walking to work for those living closer. The numbers are staggering. Procore employs 700 in Carpinteria and roughly only 20 live here. That’s a massive influx of people to the city every day. The electric shuttle will run to GranVida and downtown between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., according to Madey, an active member of the Carpinteria Chamber of Commerce. He says the company will try to incentivize visits to downtown businesses and hopes to develop some partnerships. The city may begin to issue tickets if the issue doesn’t abate in the near future. Procore is still growing and has demonstrated an appetite to remain in Carpinteria for many years. Carl’s Jr. and Venoco both went away, but Procore has quickly taken over their office spaces (85,000-square-feet) in an ongoing and seemingly unending expansion. It has five warehouses on Cindy Lane and has converted some of that space to a learning center. Moitoza said he anticipates 1,000 employees in the coming years. “We want to be proactive, not reactive, to our growth,” he said, signaling the parking issues will be addressed before further spillover occurs. The offices were originally designed and developed for the old way of doing business, but Procore, like many tech companies, doesn’t adhere to the model of having one office per body. “We have a lot of huddle areas and breakout spaces,” Madey said. “But we’re not asking the buildings to do anything they can’t handle.”

Hilda P. Seibert, mother of four, grandmother of eight, and great-grandmother of six, passed away peacefully on Jan. 1, 2018. She had recently celebrated her 100th birthday with nearly all of her four-generation family in attendance. Originally from Milwaukee, Wisc., in 1941, Hilda moved to Los Angeles with her husband, Robert C. Seibert, where they lived and raised their family. Forty years ago, Hilda and Bob retired to Carpinteria after many summers of vacationing on the world’s safest beach. Hilda gave generously of her time to various volunteer organizations: Santa Barbara Zoo, Lotus Land, Carpinteria Valley Museum of History, HELP, Carpinteria Seniors and Friends of the Library Bookstore among others. She was fortunate to have travelled widely, satisfying her curiosity about nature, people, history. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. She will be missed her greatly. At Hilda’s request, donations may be made to the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History, 956 Maple Ave. Carpinteria, CA 93013.

We are more alike than different. Mother Nature didn’t take much notice to differences among people during the fire and mudslides, did she? She destroyed houses big and small, grand and simple. She stripped income from some people and companies who have easily absorbed the loss and from some who will struggle for months. KEYT showed a video that will stick with me for a long time: a man from Montecito who had escaped the mudslides gratefully accepting a pair of shoes. He may very well have a full bank account, but in that moment he was in physical need. Pain, fear, loss and trauma reveal our how alike we are at our core. Money can’t make the awful feelings go away. Each and every one of us, whether or not we were in the direct path of the fire or mudslide, has suffered in one way or another, and each must attend to the need to heal. “From you I receive, to you I give, together we share, and from this we live,” lilts a hymn I know. By caring for others, we care for ourselves and allowing others to care for us helps us heal. Indeed, our lives are meaningful because of connections with friends and family, our surroundings, our contributions to the world and the tangled balls of emotion that go with all those things. Folks from the Carpinteria Children’s Project and Carpinteria Food Pantry have worked together to enable a remarkable crew of volunteers and donations for food to serve those struggling with basic needs in our community. We receive, we give, and some beautiful families do both. The five food distributions (Thursday, Feb. 15, and Friday, March 2, are still to come) have served both the contributors and the recipients. The village has made it happen, among them our faithful Spanish-speaking Promotores, residents of GranVida, Jaime Diamond and Max in his pack-and play, several area churches, the Rotary Club, AYSO and individuals and groups too many to name—the com-

munity appreciates you all! Another opportunity to give to others and receive yourself is being offered by Community Cares of Carpinteria, a program of Hospice of Santa Barbara and a new partner at the Carpinteria Children’s Project. The Thomas Disaster Community Support Group is designed to provide support for adults who have been impacted by the Thomas Disaster. It is an opportunity to come together with others in a similar situation and share experiences, provide mutual support and find ways to move forward. The group will be guided by a licensed therapist, free of charge, and held at the Carpinteria Children’s Project on four Saturdays starting this weekend. Participants must pre-register to attend by calling 563-8820, x110. We look different, live in apartments, houses or not; speak different languages, come from different places, but we certainly share the need to be safe and to be surrounded by a community that cares. Carpinteria is such a caring community, each of us joining in to give and receive so we can heal together. What a wonderful place to be!

“From the vacation rentals in town, to the local dog groomers and all the way to the sales of toilet paper at a neighborhood market: all of this town benefits from tourists! ”

––Wilja Happé

Anti-tourist is no way to be

Seriously! I had to read it multiple times making sure it said what I read in last week Coastal View News: Our City Council member Al Clark is complaining about too many tourists coming into our town? Too many tourists spending their dollars at local businesses? I do not know the source of income for this council member, but he seems to forget that most of the local retail businesses stay afloat because of the tourist dollars coming in! From the vacation rentals in town, to the local dog groomers and all the way to the sales of toilet paper at a neighborhood market: all of this town benefits from tourists! And let’s us not forget the extra occupancy taxes they bring in; that is cash going into the city bank account. A city that Al Clark wants to represent? In my eyes, it is time for a recall. Shame on him for wanting a wall around our valley!

Love your librarian

In February, the month of love, I think it’s important to reflect on the simple pleasure of reading a good book. With so many electronic distractions, it’s becoming more and more rare to find a teenager who loves to read. Every parent and educator knows that literacy skills are a good predictor of academic success. At Carpinteria Middle School, Pat Guarnero, Library Media Technician, is a matchmaker of sorts. She can find the perfect book for any student. Once a stu-

dent is hooked on a good book, his or her passion for reading blossoms. If you look in the backpack of almost any youngster at Carpinteria Middle School, you’ll find a library book. In fact, as I write this, there are 536 books checked out to CMS students. Our community is so lucky to have such a dedicated and hard-working librarian fostering the love of reading for our teens. If you know a librarian like Pat, Valentine’s Day would be a great time to take a moment to thank them for keeping the love of reading alive in Carpinteria.

Out of sight, out of mind

Carpinteria Creative Arts and the Carpinteria Farmer’s Market have temporarily relocated to the Amtrak Station parking lot while the mud trucks continue to use Linden Avenue for beach access. When the project is finished, the city will then be repaving Linden Avenue and the relocation will continue until the paving is done, which could last until the end of February or longer. Please come down and support your local farmers and arts and crafters who have suffered like so many through the fires, mudslides and freeway closures. We are there every Thursday from 3 until 6 p.m. and would appreciate your continued patronage. Come see the new vendors and find something for your Valentine.

By ROBERt MCDOnALD, GEnERAL MAnGER, CARPintERiA VALLEy WAtER DiStRiCt Natural disasters are inevitable and, unfortunately, the Carpinteria Valley has recently been hit by three: drought, fire and floods. It is our mission at Carpinteria Valley Water District (CVWD) to supply safe reliable water, even in the midst of a natural disaster. CVWD has learned from these unprecedented events and will use this information to improve our emergency response moving forward. Since the drought began in 2012, our area has faced extremely dry conditions. There was a glimpse of hope in 2017 when the Carpinteria Valley experienced average rainfall; however, this was brief and was not enough to replenish our water supplies. Over the last six years, we have focused on managing our water supplies to ensure that we can make it through periods of extended drought. In recent years, the District has utilized more State Water than ever before and has tapped into supplemental water programs from other areas of the State. In addition, we have developed groundwater facilities to take advantage of the large groundwater basin beneath the Carpinteria Valley and have established policies to manage the remaining supplies in Lake Cachuma. Planning has been key to surviving the longest and driest drought on record. Thanks to conservation from our customers and proactive water supply management, we have been able to make it, but we now know that we need to develop a local drought-proof water supply to prepare for the future. The Thomas Fire was an unexpected turn of events at the end of 2017. Thousands of firefighters from across the nation assisted in fighting the massive fire that burned over 280,000 acres and caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage. CVWD staff worked around the clock to ensure that water was available for fire suppression. Reservoirs were filled to make certain Carpinteria had water for the entire valley. Generators were fueled at each critical facility and portable generators were placed at facilities that did not have generators. District staff worked with Emergency Services to provide information so these critical facilities could be prioritized. The District suffered some minor damage during the fire, but these losses were small given the scale and intensity of the event. Once the dust and ash settled on the Thomas Fire, it became clear that flooding and debris flows were likely given the burn area conditions. CVWD believed it had several facilities that were at risk, and the necessary steps were taken to prepare. We knew prior to the floods that CVWD would need to have a plan in the event that the South Coast Conduit was to break or the water from Lake Cachuma was to become unusable due to debris flows. We were ready to fill our distribution system

Through the drought, fire and floods CVWD was fortunately able to provide water without interruptions or water quality emergencies. Some of our fortune was simply luck, but much of it was due to planning and working through vulnerabilities in our water supply systems. with solely groundwater if needed. During the flooding CVWD suffered minor damage to its facilities. However, our concerns about losing the conveyance through the South Coast Conduit became a reality. Initially, it appeared that there were breaks in the South Coast Conduit, but the water loss to the system was later attributed to breaks in Montecito’s water mains. Thankfully, Carpinteria’s local groundwater basin bridged the water supply as pipelines were repaired and the South Coast Conduit was restored to service. Through the drought, fire and floods CVWD was fortunately able to provide water without interruptions or water quality emergencies. Some of our fortune was simply luck, but much of it was due to planning and working through vulnerabilities in our water supply systems. CVWD staff is hard at work analyzing our preparedness and our response to the Thomas fire and floods. We have learned that we need to have disasterproof communication between staff, first responders and our facilities. We have seen that time is of the essence and getting information to the right people in an efficient manner is imperative. In addition, we have learned that local water supplies are the most reliable during a disaster, and we believe that our proposed recycled water project will help create a local resilient water supply to that end. If you are interested in learning more about the Recycled Water Facilities Plan, please visit our website cvwd.net, follow us on Twitter @CarpWater, and like Carpinteria Valley Water District on Facebook.

Dimensions of a monumental cleanup

Digging out in Montecito means wider beaches but dirtier waters off Goleta and Carpinteria, at least temporarily. By Melinda Burns When the county dumps tons of mud from the catastrophic debris flow of Jan. 9 on the shores of Goleta and Carpinteria, is that “beach nourishment”? Yes, and it’s a rare opportunity for the sand-starved coast, said Jim Bailard, a Carpinteria resident and technical advisor for the Beach Erosion Authority for Clean Oceans and Nourishment (BEACON), a joint powers agency of elected officials from Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. “It’s actually a good thing, provided it’s being done responsibly,” Bailard said. “Basically, this is sediment that in the past would have gone down to the beach. That’s how you make beach sand. You place the sand at one point on the beach and the waves move it down the coast.” Wave energy quickly separates out the mud from the sand and carries the mud offshore, Bailard said. “You see lots of new sand as the beach has built out substantially,” he said. But even as the sand comes back, the water remains unsafe for swimming. A month after the Jan. 9 storm flushed a lot of dirty creek water into the ocean, the surf zone is testing clean again along much of the South Coast—two big exceptions being Goleta Beach and Carpinteria Beach at the end of Ash Avenue, where, as of Feb. 2, bacterial levels remained high. Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte said she’s fielded hundreds of complaints from residents who don’t like the ban on swimming or the dump truck traffic at their local beach. Goleta Beach is a county park. The mayor said she was first notified of the dumping operation by a resident who saw it on KEYT news. “We recognize that this was an emergency and of course we want to help,” Perotte said. “And though Goleta Beach is not in our jurisdiction, it’s our only beach for recreation. This isn’t like anything that’s happened before. So Goleta residents are asking, ‘Will there be long-term effects? Might there be other locations that can share the impacts?’” Larry Fay, county director of Environmental Health Services, said that once the dumping stops, the high bacterial levels in the surf at Goleta and Carpinteria beaches will come down. “I would say it will be a rapid recovery—weeks rather than months—once you stop putting new sediment on the beach,” he said. Just last year, Fay noted, the county issued health warnings at beaches from Jalama to Carpinteria after a four-inch rainfall on Feb. 18, then lifted most of warnings by Feb. 27. In conditions of high winds and winter swells, there can be an upwelling of the mud on the ocean floor and a return of elevated bacterial levels, Fay said, but these episodes are short and infrequent. “It stabilizes pretty quickly when the weather and tides change,” he said. Dumping mud at Goleta Beach is nothing new. Since 1995, records show, the county has trucked or piped in more than one million cubic yards of mud and sand, dredging it out of Goleta Slough

CHUCK GRAHAM

More than 27,000 cubic yards of mud from the salt marsh has been deposited at Carpinteria Beach since Jan. 9.

To date, according to the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, a state agency, the mud that is going to Goleta and Carpinteria beaches complies with state standards with respect to silt content and toxic chemicals. and Santa Barbara Harbor—all part of a Sisyphean effort to restore the sandy beach at the county’s most popular park. Following the Jan. 9 debris flow, the county obtained emergency permits allowing the placement of 300,000 cubic yards of mud at Goleta and Carpinteria beaches combined. To date, said Tom Fayram, deputy director of county Public Works, the Goleta Beach has received 32,000 cubic yards of mud from Montecito roads and creeks. Carpinteria Beach has received 27,000 cubic yards of mud from the Salt Marsh Reserve. The emergency permits will expire on Feb. 20. “The beach work will be wrapping up around that date,” Fayram said. “The roads have been mostly cleaned. There’s a lot of material on private property, but that’s not permitted to go there.” To date, according to the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, a state agency, the mud that is going to Goleta and Carpinteria beaches complies with state standards with respect to silt content and toxic chemicals. Testing is performed every two or three days. “The material, based on the information we have, is good for beach nourishment, but we have limited samples

up to this point,” said Phil Hammer, a senior environmental scientist for the state board. Meanwhile, UCSB scientists are testing bacterial DNA in the mud and the surf at Goleta Beach to determine whether the source of the bacteria is human, rather than from horses, dogs or birds. The Montecito cleanup is a gargantuan task. The debris flow is believed to have left behind more than 2 million cubic yards of mud, boulders, mangled cars and pieces of houses in the small community, largely along Montecito and San Ysidro creeks. (By comparison, Hurricane Maria, one of the worst natural disasters in the Caribbean, left strewn an estimated 1 million cubic yards of trash and debris in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a territory of 160 square miles, last September.) In the foothills above Montecito and Carpinteria, the U.S. Army Corps has cleared out nearly half of an estimated 377,000 cubic yards of mud and boulders from debris basins on local creeks, Fayram said. These truckloads are going

to a reclamation site in Buellton. The work is expected to be finished by March 15. In addition, county crews are excavating sections of creeks plugged with mud and debris at eight locations in Montecito, Fayram said. The Corps will haul away the mud and rocks to Buellton and Santa Paula, he said. “It’s so much work, and we have to prioritize what’s important,” Fayram said. “At some point soon, we’ll be done, and we’ll stand by. If we get another storm, we’re reset to having to start all over again.” By some estimates, fully half of the Montecito cleanup will fall to private property owners. “I think it’s going to go on for many years, by the time this stuff has been dealt with.” Fayram said. “Some people may well never remove all the material.” To Bailard’s way of thinking, the beach is where much of it belongs. Why is the Corps trucking rocks from the debris basins to Buellton? he wants to know. Baseball-sized rocks called “cobbles” form a base layer that help protects beaches from erosion during winter storms, Bailard said. In heavy flood events, these rocks would normally come down the creeks to the coast. “It’s a public resource,” Bailard said. “To cart it away to landfills is really doing a disservice to the coastline. We’re going to lose our beach as sea level rises, and that’s what this is all about.” Melinda Burns is a freelance journalist based in Santa Barbara.

Thomas Disaster: Past, present, future Part one of four

BY ERIN MAKER, ENVIRONMENTAL COORDINATOR, CITY OF CARPINTERIA The last couple of months have been trying on all of the local communities. With unprecedented cleanup associated with ash from the Thomas Fire quickly followed by debris flows, I think everyone is looking forward to returning to some type of normal routine. A lot goes into all levels of responding to an emergency. Along with many others, I was working overnight on Jan. 9 when rains hit and brought on debris flows in creeks throughout the Thomas Fire burn scar. The most devastating flows happened in Montecito, in the Montecito Creek and San Ysidro Creek drainages, but all drainages within the Thomas Fire footprint were impacted on some level. In the first minutes and hours early in the morning of Jan. 9, it felt like time slowed. Everyone went into response mode, working to determine the extent of the debris flows and response, and waiting anxiously for the sun to rise so we could get a better idea of what had happened. Daylight is always a factor in when responding to an emergency. When the debris flows happened, it was impossible to see how large they were. Emergency responders arriving to help were slowed due to lack of visibility and mud. Widespread power outages and cloudy skies meant that response happened in near total darkness and mud flows were not visible until you drove into them. Having

The City is working with County of Santa Barbara staff to come up with a cleanup plan, post-debris removal. Street sweeping has been ongoing, but we recognize that sweepers have their limitations and we’re working to address those. spent the last few weeks working with people responsible for various levels of response, from the first responders to recovery and cleanup efforts, I know that most of us didn’t sleep much in the weeks following. I’ve learned throughout this process that there is much more to do than you initially anticipate. Just when you think you have reached a turning point, another 10 issues come up. It is not ordered into steps—all steps are happening simultaneously. While the Search and Rescue personnel and other first responders were saving lives, the rest of us were looking ahead to the next hours and days to determine when rain might happen again, how we could assist in initial access to the hardest hit areas and, longer term, what to do about clearing roads and replacing critical infrastructure.

I know that the impact of the recovery efforts has been hard on all of us. The traffic associated with recovery has taken its toll on our community, as has everything else. We receive a lot of questions about what is next, so I will attempt to answer some of those here. The City is working with County of Santa Barbara staff to come up with a cleanup plan, post-debris removal. Street sweeping has been ongoing, but we recognize that sweepers have their limitations and we’re working to address those.

Dirt and dust are the most visible concern to the public, but we are also inspecting the condition of the pavement to include damage to the roads into our recovery work and disaster claims. There is still a lot of large debris, mostly trees and branches, that washed up during the storm along the beach. People have been collecting driftwood—I found some beautiful pieces on walks—but we will be working to remove and mulch what is left on the beach between the State Beach and Ash Avenue in the coming week. There is also the matter of silt in the Salt Marsh. While the County of Santa Barbara Flood Control has been working hard to desilt the Santa Monica and Franklin Creek channels where they have access, equipment cannot reach everywhere. There is still a lot of silt preventing normal flows of water in and out of the marsh. Flood Control has been working on that along with other drainage impacts to creeks and floodways. Next week I will focus on preparing for future events.

Santa Monica debris basin saves the day By LEA BOyD

If the Thomas Fire played the villain in this winter’s disasters, the Santa Monica Debris Basin was Carpinteria’s hero. In the early morning storm on Jan. 9, the basin collected 156,000 cubic yards of boulders, trees and mud—debris that otherwise would have torn through the city on its way to the sea. Nicknamed “the mother of all debris basins” by Santa Barbara County Flood Control employees, the structure was build in the early 1970s, following the 1969 flood that damaged vast swaths of the city. Tom Fayram, Deputy Public Works Director for the County of Santa Barbara, said that without the basin, last month’s flood “would’ve been like ’69 but probably worse … It really saved Carp from untold misery—probably not that different from what Montecito had.” Built and managed by the Army Corps of Engineers, the bowl-shaped structure sits at the base of the foothills at a point where water and sediment from smaller tributaries funnel into Santa Monica Creek. Despite its earthen floor and boulder-lined faces, the structure serves as an efficient and sophisticated catchment. “It was built for this scenario, and it delivered,” said Fayram of the January storm. From the base of the bowl, three concrete towers rise up to various heights—an upper, middle and lower level. Each tower has a cage-like box at the top, which allows water to flow through while debris collects in the basin. The water pours into an underground pipeline that spills into a “stilling

pool” several hundred yards downstream. In big storms, water eventually reaches the concrete-lined spillway that runs downhill. The spillway ends in a “flip bucket,” which is a concrete ramp that shoots the fast-moving run-off high into the air. When the water falls into the next component of the system, the stilling basin, the angle of the fall slows the flow. The basin reached its capacity on Jan. 9, with enough debris to fill a football-field sized pit, 75feet deep. Flood control relies on several debris basins in Carpinteria Valley, the next largest of which is the Lower Toro West basin that holds up to 50,000 cubic yards. Basins on Franklin Creek and in Gobernador Canyon, at 1,162 and 11,408 cubic yards respectively, have both been cleared. Work is nearly complete on the Arroyo Paredon Creek basin and the three Toro Canyon basins. But the mammoth effort to clear Santa Monica Debris Basin is far from over. About 17,000 cubic yards have been removed, leaving almost 90 percent of the debris still clogging the crucial flood control capacity. The first contractor assigned to the job was recently replaced by Granite Construction. Granite’s team is led by Superintendent Doug Barnes, who cleared the same basin in the heavy rains of the late 1990s. “This is going to start to move fast,” Fayram said of the debris removal. Granite is working to “de-water” the basin, which will make it easier to remove the dirt, logs and boul-

A crew from Granite Construction works to dewater the Santa Monica debris basin on Feb. 2. ders. Water flows downstream, and debris is moved to Buellton for disposal. Barnes noted that the storms in 1995 through 1998 also filled the basin, but without all the logs that are a result of the Thomas Fire.

BEFORE: After the Thomas Fire but before the storm, the empty debris basin is 40- to 50-feet deep, with its series of drainage towers rising up from the floor. Note that the top tower is the one pictured near the crane scoop in the photo below.

To de-water the basin, a crane scoops debris away from the upper tower’s sieve-like top, which allows water to drain down.

AFTER: Pictured the morning of the storm, the Santa Monica debris basin holds 156,000 cubic yards of debris, most of which swept off the hillsides in under an hour.

ABOVE, a Granite Construction employee oversees the pumping of water from the massive boulder collection at the entry point to the debris basin. “Those rocks and all this debris would’ve ended up in Carpinteria,” said Tom Fayram, Deputy Public Works Director for the County of Santa Barbara.

Linden-Casitas Interchange update Though fire and floods have diverted attention from Caltrans’ highway widening work, construction has continued to propel the Linden-Casitas Interchange project forward. The $60 million construction project that aims to improve traffic flow through Carpinteria is a year ahead of schedule. Ground broke in 2016, and work is now expected to wrap up in 2019. Linden-Casitas represents the third phase of widening Highway 101 between Santa Barbara and Mussel Shoals. The fourth and final phase, which adds a third lane in both directions between Carpinteria and Montecito, will follow immediately.

Casitas Pass Road Overcrossing

On the east side of the new bridge, crews are working on a temporary pedestrian walkway that will be needed when the existing sidewalk on the west side of the overcrossing is removed in the next stage of bridge construction.

Linden Avenue Overcrossing

Crews are now installing temporary supports (falsework) to enable construction of the new overcrossing. Once the temporary supports are in place, wood form work will begin for the underside (soffit) and internal supports (stems). Crews will also begin backfilling dirt near side supports (abutments). Highway 101 will be closed between Bailard and Linden avenues as needed Monday through Thursday nights from 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. for falsework installation.

Via Real

KARLSSON

Jutting steel beams make up one link in the Linden Avenue overpass’s falsework, on which the bridge itself will be built. The freeway will close overnight for the rest of the falsework to be installed. When the bridge is complete, the falsework will be removed.

Grading and paving is underway for Via Real and the new bike path between Via Real and Carpinteria Avenue, which should reopen in February.

Southbound Highway 101 bridge over Carpinteria Creek

Crews will set forms and rebar and then pour concrete for the approach areas to the new southbound bridge. In the median and lane areas from Casitas Pass Road to east of Carpinteria Creek, crews are adding rebar then forming and pouring the highway surface. The new concrete has no joint lines across the lanes, which will result in a quieter surface. Drainage and irrigation work continues for the new on and off-ramps at Casitas Pass Road, median, shoulder areas, and along Casitas Pass Road near the construction yard. Rebar has been installed for the new retaining wall on southbound Highway 101 between Linden Avenue and Casitas Pass Road. The next step will be a concrete pour. This work precedes upcoming sound wall work.

Upcoming work

KARLSSON

On the south side of the new Linden overpass, crews work on the bridge’s side supports (abutments).

Later this month, the southbound Highway 101 on-ramp at Casitas Pass Road will close for up to two weeks for ramp improvements. Sewer realignment work will be done to prepare for the Nipomo Drive sound wall. Carpinteria Valley Water District will install a new water line on Linden Avenue in preparation for the new Linden Avenue Overpass.

Early this week, crews began placing wood form work for the underside (soffit) of the new overcrossing at Linden Avenue.

The new overcrossing at Linden Avenue will include two lanes going toward the mountains, with sidewalks and trees on both sides of the road. On the mountain side, Linden Avenue will also have a new turn lane to access northbound Highway 101. Currently, the east side of the overpass is being built. Crews will eventually shift traffic onto the new side, demolish the old bridge, then construct the second half of the new overcrossing.

4-H students bring home their babies

After a three-week separation from their animals, members of the Playa Del Sur 4-H Steer Show Team were happily reunited with their livestock last week. The team resituated the steers into their pens at the intersection of Foothill Road and Arroyo Paredon Creek, a waterway that overflowed its banks on Jan. 9 and left the livestock area greatly damaged. The five steers had been evacuated the night before the flood under advisement from a member of Santa Barbara Flood Control. Just hours later mud and debris flow tore through the 4-H livestock farm and swept away almost everything the group owned—lamb pens and houses, tack room, generator, livestock scales, all show supplies and equipment, tools, wheelbarrows, feed and more. “It was hard seeing everything we built and worked so hard for, completely gone,” member Jasmyn Arroyo said.

The steer pen and feeders were left standing, but they were bent, smashed together and buried in knee-high mud. The youth went right to work digging out what was left and setting up their pen on higher ground. A number of local businesses and individuals helped with the rebuilding process, as well as 4-H supporters throughout Santa Barbara County. “It’s a relief just to know that we’re going to get out of this huge mess,” said student Jenny Alaniz. While the steers are back and settling in, the group has a long way to go to rebuild the farm. There are still sheep pens and houses to build, a tack house to replace, and equipment to acquire. Play del Sur members plan to demonstrate their resilience and dedication when they show their animals at the upcoming Santa Barbara Fair & Expo in April.

Basketball nail-biter ends Warrior way

BY ALONZO OROZCO

Because of this year’s disaster-shortened season, the Carpinteria High School boys basketball team could afford little margin of error when Santa Clara came to town to take on the Warriors on Jan. 31. A quick start and a 21-12 first-quarter lead at the end of the first quarter gave Carpinteria the advance it needed to ultimately beat the Saints, 57-55. “This was a very big win for us to stay in the hunt with Santa Clara because we’re both battling for that last spot in the big playoff picture,” said Warriors coach Henry Gonzales. The victory gives the Warriors an overall record of 3-7 and improves their Tri-Valley League mark to 3-6, while Santa Clara falls to 5-13 overall

and 3-6 in League also. Terrell Richardson’s 11 points and Noah Nuño’s eight warmed up the scoreboard in the first stanza, but Carpinteria was outscored 20 to 14 in the second to make it 35-32 at the half. “(Santa Clara is) a very good team, too,” said Gonzales. “They have players who can play, and they’re going to make runs.” Nuño added another seven to lead the Warriors with 15 at the half. Carpinteria found itself in a hardfought battle, as the Saints captured a 36-35 lead to begin the third quarter. It was the second meeting between the two teams this year; Santa Clara took the first contest by a score of 45-41 on their home court in Oxnard on Jan. 17. “(The first game) was similar to this one; we jumped

out by 11 … and they went ahead, and we went ahead, and they made the plays down the stretch,” said Gonzales. Richardson’s runner in the lane ended the third, giving the Warriors a 50-47 edge to enter the fourth. Both teams ramped up the defensive pressure entering the last quarter. Two steals and subsequent lay-ins by Chris Ramirez put Carpinteria up 56-53 with 1:20 left in the game. Another layup, this time by Santa Clara’s Ivan Barocio narrowed the margin to 56-55. With 13 seconds left, the Saints had a chance to take the lead, but Barocio’s drive in the lane was thwarted by a trio of Warriors: Brady and Dom Sturdivan, along with Terrell Richardson. The defensive stop forced Santa Clara to foul

with two seconds left in the game. Brady Sturdivan tacked on a free throw to close out the scoring. Nuño led all scorers with 23, while Richardson registered 18. For the Saints, Barocio finished on top with 16. “We kept our composure down the stretch and made the defensive plays to win the game,” said Gonzales. Carpinteria’s final game of the regular season takes place this Friday, Jan. 9, starting at 4 p.m. The boys and girls basketball teams will host an Alumni Night benefit for Thomas Fire and flood victims, beginning with the frosh and junior varsity teams competing against parents and faculty. The event will culminate with this year’s varsity team taking on a team of Warrior alumni.

Carpinteria United claims championship Despite only having a handful of practice sessions prior to the 2018 Area 10W All-Star tournament, the U12 Carpinteria United girls soccer team managed to take the championship title. The Carpinteria girls walked away with a perfect 6-0 record in the tournament, which took place over the last two weekends. Head Coach Richard Pakes said, “We are extremely proud of the girls; they had to overcome a lot of adversity leading up to the start of our season with the fire and mudslides.” In order to capture the first place title, Carpinteria United defeated Ojai, 4-2, Ventura, 2-1, Santa Barbara, 3-2, North Oxnard II, 4-0, Camarillo, 3-0 and North Oxnard I, 3-1. Maia Pakes lead the charge, scoring nine goals over the two weekends, while Mac Bennett added five. Also scoring goals in the tournament were Vivian Caesar who tallied three, and Isela Zamora and Esme Landeck each contributed a goal.

After notching the Warrior’s second goal against Nordhoff on Jan. 29, Gabriel Barajas shares his excitement with Luis Garcia.

Continued from page 17

January 31 – The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team arrived at a 1-1 draw against Santa Paula. Luis Garcia scored on a ball from Angel Orozco, beating his defender and finding himself one-on-one with the Cardinal goalkeeper to take a 1-0 lead in the 70th minute. The Cardinals responded in the 75th minute with the equalizer. “Our boys are well aware that in this league, regardless of the opponent, one cannot lose focus or concentration and must play 80 minutes at the highest level possible in order to come away with a victory,” said Warrior coach Leo Quintero. “We give credit where credit is due, and Santa Paula stuck with their game plan, despite going down 1-0 with 10 minutes left to play.” February 2 – The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team came away with a 3-1 victory against the Cate School Rams to land its sixth win in league. In the 35th minute of the first half, Luis Garcia fed a through ball to Jose Jimenez, who struck the ball in motion, curving it to the far post for a 1-0 Warriors lead. Then, Jimenez flicked the ball over the Rams keeper, leaving an open net for Mario Jimenez who tapped the ball for the score and a 2-0 lead. Jose Jimenez recorded his second assist of the match when he found an open Vincent Gonzalez. Gonzalez, after making a run up the middle, shot it past the Rams keeper to give Carpinteria a 3-0 lead with five minutes left to play. Goalkeeper Cristian Estrada recorded five saves, Eddie Mendoza and Abel Gutierrez anchored the back line, providing defensive stability and catapulting a powerful offensive attack,” said Warrior coach Leo Quintero.

January 30 – The Cate School girls basketball team fell to Fillmore, 53-35. “Lily Zanze started off the game with an awesome three-point play within the first two minutes; but after that, Cate only managed to score two more points in that entire quarter, while Fillmore scored a total of 16 points in the first quarter,” said Ram coach Amy Venditta. In the second quarter, Cate scored 15 points to the Flashes 18 points. Maya

Blattberg knocked down 12 points, while Zanze and Elle Smith each had seven for the game. In the third quarter, the Rams scored 11 points and Fillmore scored 13; and in the final quarter, the Rams scored four and Fillmore scored six. “Jasmine Ross played incredible defense and stopped Fillmore’s fast breaks, which had hurt the Rams so much in the first quarter,” explained Venditta. February 1 - The Cate School girls basketball team lost against the top team in the Frontier League, Grace Brethren, by a score of 63-25. Elle Smith finished with 11 points, and Maya Blattberg scored nine. Lily Zanze pitched in three, and Deborah Brittain scored two. “Bella Lucente and Dana Huston-Chen played aggressive defense in the post, and looked to create offensively,” said Ram coach Amy Venditta. “Maisie Oswald and Piper Brooks made some great passes … Jasmine Ross played a good game and played defense against by far the best player in our league.” Grace Brethren regularly beats its league competitors by 40-plus points, according to Venditta. February 3 – The Cate School girls basketball team won its game against Thacher on Saturday afternoon, 44-24. Elle Smith scored a season high of 19 points, and Maya Blattberg ended with 13 points. “Lily Zanze pulled down over 15 rebounds; she crashed the boards and took care of the ball, all while making good decisions while running the offense,” said Rams coach Amy Venditta. Sarah Polowczak tallied six and Piper Brooks chipped in two. “As coaches, we are so proud of their play and development demonstrated in this game,” added Venditta. February 5 – The Cate School girls basketball team beat Bishop Diego, 44-28. Lily Zanze dribbled up the floor and set up Sarah Polowczak, whose three-pointer tied the game at halftime. Polowczak had nine points, while Piper Brooks finished with seven. “Maya Blattberg, Deborah Brittain and Elle Smith worked hard moving the ball, getting layups, and getting rebounds in the post,” said Ram coach Amy Venditta. Jasmine Ross scored two. “Laura Vences, Dana Huston-Chen and Bella Lucente finished the game with great intensity and heart, making some great plays,” added Venditta.

The win improves the Rams record to 6-5 and 5-4 in the Frontier League, it sets up a three-way tie for second place going into the last game of the season with Fillmore, Cate and Thacher all at 5-4 in League with Foothill Tech occupying first place.

Boys soccer

February 2 - The Cate School boys soccer team dropped a home contest to crosstown rival Carpinteria, 3-1, on Friday afternoon. The Rams fell behind 3-0 by the 75th minute. Cate scored in the waning minutes of the game when Charlie Morris played a ball through to Buba Fofanah who shot it past the Carpinteria keeper from 16 yards out. “(Cullen) Barber was outstanding between the pipes and center back, and captain Ben Jessup anchored the back quite well,” said Cate coach Pete Mack. “In the midfield, Jack Deardorff did a superb job of marking Carpinteria’s best players, and captain Bailor Jalloh created counterattacking opportunities for Morris and Fofanah.” February 5 – The Cate School boys soccer team dropped a Tri-Valley League match at Fillmore, 1-0. The Flashes scored in the 15th minute after Cate keeper Cullen Barber made a point blank save which yielded a rebound that a Flash player toe-poked home. The Rams then countered, missing on a half-dozen occasions, including a shot in the waning seconds of play that Charlie Morris shot wide of the post. “Our positional play defensively was sound from the forwards on back, especially our back four of captain Ben Jessup, Adlai Hester, Parker Bowlin and Jack Deardorff, who generally drew Fillmore’s best player,” said Ram coach Pete Mack. “Offensively the combination play of captain Bailor Jalloh, Harry Corman, Will Deardorff, Charlie Morris, Dylan Vincent and Buba Fofanah was unselfish and super fun to watch.”

“Phantom Thread” cVn

duncan’s reel deal m at t d u n c a n “Phantom Thread” is fine wine. Paul Thomas Anderson, Daniel Day-Lewis and Vicky Krieps are its vintners. “Phantom Thread” is about the dominion of dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis). Reynolds’ work is inspired, as if from on high. His dresses make the women who wear them feel just right—that they belong, whether at a party or a ball or a state dinner, but most of all, his dresses make them feel like they belong to the world. As if by magic, or sublime revelation, Reynolds makes them fit. And those around him, intoxicated by his passion for his art, bow in adoration. Reynolds Woodcock is not, in fact, a god. But you wouldn’t know it by observing his little Olympus perched along a fashionable street in London. Take his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville), for example. Cyril, whom Reynolds tenderly refers to as “my old so-and-so” and thus indicates his affection for this quasi-wifely companion who apparently lacks a title but who nevertheless makes her pious sacrifice by dutifully managing his creative temple, sits with veteran aplomb across a breakfast table from a much younger, prettier woman who appears to be in a long-term daze over why she is there. But Cyril knows. Reynolds sits at the end of the table, head down in his drawings, unconcerned. But Cyril knows the younger woman is a set piece—a shiny object that once occupied Reynolds’ attention but that has now lost its luster. With Reynolds’ permission, Cyril gets rid of her. Reynolds quickly finds another wouldbe set piece. Alma (Vicky Krieps) is a somewhat plain, even clumsy, waitress, whom Reynolds draws in and draws forth with shockingly smooth rapidity, as if with a single stroke—two hems united with one needle delicately thrust into the garment. Alma is perfect, Reynolds says. Alma is everything, he coos. She brings him to life. She makes him voracious. But Alma is not a set piece. She won’t allow it. She understands, appreciates, and even adores Reynolds’ dominion, as did those who came before her. But now it’s hers. She, unlike others who were all too willing to worship at the altar of Woodcock, is no mere mortal. And she can, if she must, make Reynolds mortal too. Reynolds Woodcock isn’t a god. He actually has two parts—two roles to play. Like so many other natural-born idols, he is part deity, part helpless child. He thrives—he almost literally feeds—on

two distinct, seemingly incommensurate nutrients: Adoration and succor. He comes alive when he, and especially his work, is deified and held scared. But he equally longs for someone to take care for him, to mother him, to cradle him, to make him feel small and innocent. Alma learns this. And she learns to use it to her advantage. These characters in “Phantom Thread” are at once strange and otherworldly, yet also profoundly recognizable. They are mosaics composed of the usual shards of humanity, but arranged in ways that highlight these ingredients in a new, fascinating and somewhat alien way. It’s its own kind of mythology. The characters—the ungodly gods, the mortals grasping for infinitude, the Promethean over-reachers, the tricksters, the plotters, the egomaniacs, the jealous devotees—animated as they are by some mystical force, and joined by all of the tangled, twisted ligaments that bind people together and keep them apart, represent the basic elements of what humans are, what they could be, and what, for good or ill, they aspire to. Anderson’s films always invite continued reflection, interpretation, wonder and even puzzlement. “Phantom Thread” is no exception. It is subtle, painstakingly crafted, bold and yet complex; it defies description and yet invites—even insists upon—comparison, analysis, and discussion. “Phantom Thread” is fine wine. There are a lot of good movies this year. Pleasure does indeed come in many forms. But if I had just one pick from the 2017-2018 vintage, it’d have to be “Phantom Thread”. “Phantom Thread” is rated R for language. 0Matt Duncan, a former Coastal View News Editor, has taken physical but not emotional leave from Carpinteria to be a philosophy professor at Rhode Island College.

Halos Pitchforks

Just waiting on a friend

On Jan. 25 at approximately 11:45 p.m. a deputy was dispatched to the Bates Road/Southbound 101 onramp on a report of a woman attempting to flag down passersby. When the reporting deputy arrived, he found a 44-year-old woman sitting in the passenger seat of a vehicle with a 33-year-old man in the driver’s seat. The people told the deputy that they had run out of gas and were waiting for a friend to come up from Oxnard to help them so they could continue on to the Chumash Casino. Asked if they were on probation, the man and woman both said that they were on probation for shoplifting and drugs. The man admitted to using drugs two days before and the woman said it had been fifteen days since her last drug use. A records check revealed an arrest warrant for the man and he was taken into custody. The woman said that the deputy could search the vehicle, where he found a total of 22 syringes, including one that appeared to be loaded with “a brown substance,” probably heroin. Additionally, the deputy found two containers with suspected heroin and meth in the vehicle. The vehicle registration tab was false and there were numerous “tooter straws” with brown residue inside from snorting heroin. Denying that the syringes belonged to her or the man she was with, the woman pulled up the sleeves of her shirt to show the deputy that her arms were free of needle marks, yet the deputy stated in his report that there were numerous track marks on the woman’s arm. He placed her in handcuffs.

During an exam at the substation the man reportedly said, “I’m on dope, do I really have to do this?” He also said that he injects himself with meth and heroin three times a day. The man was transported to Santa Barbara County Jail and the woman cited for drug violations and dropped off at a fast food restaurant on Casitas Pass Road, where she said a friend would come pick her up.

Four days

On Jan. 27 at approximately 1:30 a.m. deputies responded to a call from a 46-year-old woman at a residence on Sterling Avenue regarding her 52-yearold brother, who she said was acting strangely and paranoid. The woman told deputies that her brother had been acting erratically and that he had not slept in four days. She told the deputies that he was in his room, and as they approached the door, the reporting deputy noted that he could hear a man talking very loudly and rapidly. Deputies asked the man to come outside and speak with them. The man spoke erratically without pause, and the deputies determined that he was under the influence of methamphetamine due to his elevated pulse, the burn marks on his fingertips and ceaseless talking. “(Name withheld) was talking the entire drive to the station,” the reporting deputy noted. The man was arrested and charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance and transported to the Santa Barbara County Jail.

Casey Summar and Alan Koch are the newest members of the CAC board of directors.

Carpinteria Arts Center welcomes new board members

Casey Summar and Alan Koch have been elected to the Carpinteria Arts Center board of directors. “Both of these individuals have stellar credentials and we are fortunate to add their professional expertise to our organization,” said David Powdrell, board co-chair. Casey Summar served as executive director of the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville before she and her husband relocated to Carpinteria. She is now an independent consultant for artists, arts nonprofits and foundations. Summar also councils on strategy, program development and business and legal matters—in addition to her position as an adjunct Professor of Law at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. Founder of the Tennessee Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in 2006, Summar was the 2016 Nonprofit CEO of the Year for Middle Tennessee, and was one of Nashville’s 2015 Top 40 under 40. She serves on the board of the national Craft Emergency Relief Fund, and was on the board of Americans for the Arts Private Sector Council. Alan Koch is a native of New York City and a graduate of Brooklyn Technical High School. Koch received a BA at Stony Brook University, where he lettered three years playing Division 3 basketball. After earning his MBA, Koch joined Citicorp as a Financial Analyst and came to Los Angeles, where he met his future wife Carol. He worked for Bank of America for over 20 years, retiring as Senior Vice President in 2001. Koch then began a new career of giving back to the community, serving 13 years as the high school girls basketball coach at Saint Mary’s College High School in Berkeley. In 2015, Koch and his wife Carol returned to Southern California, making Carpinteria their “forever” home. With a background in art collecting, Alan and Carol were attracted to the Carpinteria Arts Center as members and participants in the nonprofit’s capital campaign.

Our Home is Your Home. As we all continue to recover from the aftermath of fires, destructive floods and mudslides, GranVida shares its heart with each of you.

The beautiful sanctuary of Carpinteria Community Church, adorned with stained glass windows and intimate lighting, is the perfect place for family and friends to gather on your big day. The rose garden creates a colorful backdrop for wedding photos. Stay & celebrate in the Parish Hall for your reception, with a seating capacity of 105 people (beer and wine acceptable). High beam ceilings, french doors, hardwood floor, and adjacent patio sets the stage for lasting memories.

At GranVida Senior Living, we were fortunate to be spared the losses that many of our friends and neighbors in Santa Barbara County have suffered. We opened our doors to victims of the Thomas Fire when their homes were in danger. And while the fires are extinguished, and the rains have subsided, we know there are still many friends and neighbors in senior living communities who are in search of a new home or temporary respite care. GranVida Senior Living is proud to open its doors to Carpinteria and Montecito residents, welcoming you into our home, and freeing you of financial burdens, by waiving initial move-in fees through March 31st. In these moments, we are committed more than ever to providing a great life in our small town.

Crossing to Santa Cruz with CVN

On Jan. 6, Judy Mulford chartered an Island Packers boat out of Ventura Harbor for her friends and family to help her celebrate her 80th birthday on Santa Cruz Island. After a foggy start, the day became brilliant when the sun came out and the group enjoyed a tour along the cave-and-cove dotted shore of Santa Cruz. Bringing cupcakes for her group, Mulford said that she wanted each person to make a wish for themselves in a slight turnaround from the usual birthday tradition. Having previously taught basketry classes on Santa Cruz, Mulford was very familiar with the island’s beauty. In addition to appearances by dolphins, whales and island foxes, the ever-elusive Chuck Graham—a longtime friend of Mulford’s who is pictured with her—took a break from guiding to say happy birthday.

The couple’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. It was phenomenal seeing how much love was in the air and seeing people from all across the country come together as if they’ve known each other a lifetime. It was nonstop laughter, fun and conversation for all What did your guests say was their favorite facet of the event? Our guests were raving how the time flew by and how delicious the food was and how the DJ kept playing hit after hit. Our ceremony began at noon and our reception ended at midnight, and everyone stayed the entire time! Did your wedding include special details that reflected your individual personalities? We decided to do fortune cascarones/confetti eggs. Being that our wedding was so close to Fiesta, we wanted to include the confetti eggs that each had a famous Mexican Proverb in them along with the confetti—it was Andy’s mom’s idea. What was most stressful leading up to the wedding? How did you cope with that stress? Did you have to put out fires during the event? Looking back, could those have been prevented? Very little stress, we had such wonderful help in both our parents, and our wedding planner Courtney with One Sweet Day Events is an absolute pro and so organized Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they work well with your vision? Our venue, Casa de La Guerra is a perfect summer venue! Sun is hidden by 4 p.m. and the warm breeze goes all night, no jacket needed. What part of the meal did people enjoy most? Was there anything on the menu that you would skip if you had a redo? Pizza is very much a part of Andy’s life, and one thing everyone loves, and we found incredible gourmet pizza, Fire and Wine Catering, who is able to crank out pizzas quickly. We added a Santa Barbara twist with avocado and dates and fresh veggies and incredible toppings to make it wonderful. Our menu was a perfect representation of our personalities. Mexican Food and fruit and seafood as an appetizer, pizza as the main course, and churros for dessert. Weddings can end up feeling like they’re for the guests instead of the bride and groom. What did you do to ensure that the day was wonderful for you? We took a moment to sip champagne by ourselves and say a prayer together. We are both selfless people so seeing all the people celebrate our love meant so much to us and how many people care deeply for our us and our future. What is your top piece of advice for couples planning a wedding? Start early and try to accomplish one task a week. By doing that, the planning process goes easily.

The bride’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. At one point during dinner, my brother sat down next to me and said, “I’ve heard that your wedding day flies by too quickly. So let’s stop to take it in. Look around, and remember this moment.” Everyone tells you that it’s going to be such a blur, so I’m so grateful he reminded me to slow down and soak it up. What did your guests say was their favorite facet of the event? Am I allowed to say the open bar? Nathon is a big whiskey fan, and we were able to serve one of his favorites. Besides that, we do get a lot of compliments on our late night delivery of In-N-Out burgers and fries. Nathon had that planned probably since the first day we got engaged.

Did your wedding include special details that reflected your individual personalities? Nathon and I are proud cat parents to our Scottish fold, Otis, so I found these adorable small ceramic cats from an artist in Romania for our cake topper. We also forwent the traditional flavors for a funfetti sweetheart cake. What was most stressful leading up to the wedding? How did you cope with that stress? The most stressful was probably all of the small decisions that needed to be made. It felt like there was always another question that needed to be answered. I (tried) to cope by staying organized. I relied on our amazing coordinator, Jessica at Bijoux, and the Aisle Planner platform she uses to make sure everything was taken care of. Did you have to put out fires during the event? Looking back, could those have been prevented? None! If there were fires, I had no clue! We had an amazing group supporting us, from the El Encanto staff to all of our vendors, they did a wonderful job. Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they work well with your vision? We looked at several locations but every place we toured was either perfect for the ceremony, or perfect for the reception, never both. Until we went to the El Encanto. I fell in love with the arbor and lily pond immediately and the rest of the grounds did not disappoint. We were very lucky in that we didn’t need to “transform” the space, we could allow it to speak for itself. What part of the meal did people enjoy most? Was there anything on the menu that you would skip if you had a redo? We had three meal options (champagne braised chicken, rib eye and mushroom ravioli) and I heard great things about all of them. But for me, the vanilla macarons were the greatest thing I have ever eaten. People always miss the dessert for some reason so if I had a redo, I wouldn’t omit anything, I would actually make sure everyone tried them. Weddings can end up feeling like they’re for the guests instead of the bride and groom. What did you do to ensure that the day was wonderful for you? I tried to check everything off my list and confirm all the logistics prior to the day-of so that I could relax when the time came. And if it wasn’t taken care of, then it probably wasn’t important anyways. I also made sure to communicate as much as possible with my coordinator so we were both aligned on what I needed to ensure I enjoyed it. What is your top piece of advice for couples planning a wedding? You can’t have it all and you can’t please everyone, so don’t try to. Decide on the top three things most important to you both and put your time and energy toward those. Be flexible with everything else and trust that you are making the right decisions.

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

SEPT. 9 2017

The bride’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. I had two maids of honor, my best friend of 18 years and my one and only younger sister. They each gave a beautiful speech that brought me and our guests to tears. And then, as a special surprise, one of my flower girls gave a speech that she had written herself! What did your guests say was their favorite facet of the event? Thomas and I wrote the ceremony ourselves, and many of our guests told us it was “one for the books.” It was personal and had just the right amount of humor. Our good family friend Sam Shrout officiated the ceremony, which only made it that much more special. Did your wedding include special details that reflected your individual personalities? One very memorable detail was our father/daughter dance. We started our dance to a cover of the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and about two minutes in, the song cut to “I Feel Good” by James Brown, to which we had choreographed our own (hilarious) dance number. It was a huge hit. What was most stressful leading up to the wedding? How did you cope with that stress? I sent the invitations without the correct amount of postage, and we had no way of knowing which guests received their invites. It was mortifying. It ended up being something we laughed about later, but it was definitely stressful at the time! Did you have to put out fires during the event? Looking back, could those have been prevented? None whatsoever. We chose to not sweat the small stuff, and everything came together and flowed perfectly. The only blooper was that the cake tipped over on its way to the venue! It was a little lopsided for the photos, but I thought it was hilarious. Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they work well with your vision? As soon as I saw the very top of Elings Park (Godric Grove) I knew it was the perfect spot. It was important to me that both the ceremony and reception be held in one location so that the evening would flow seamlessly and none of our guests would have to travel from one place to another. What part of the meal did people enjoy most? Was there anything on the menu that you would skip if you had a redo? For our dinner we served chicken, tri-tip, beans and salad, which everyone seemed to enjoy! I’m glad we kept it simple. Weddings can end up feeling like they’re for the guests instead of the bride and groom. What did you do to ensure that the day was wonderful for you? We made sure to eat as much as we could when dinner was served! The entire evening was nonstop visiting with our guests, which is definitely more enjoyable when you aren’t starving. What is your top piece of advice for couples planning a wedding? Before you even begin planning, figure out the top two or three wedding aspects that are most important to you as the bride and groom. Prioritize them in your budget! Then find time to sit down with whoever is helping you plan/finance your wedding, and communicate those priorities and expectations. Everyone stays on the same page and it makes for less stress later! PHOTOS BY BRIAN LOVELACE PHOTOGRAPHY

Diana Joyner & Morgan Roberts

NOV. 11 2017

The couple’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. Diana: Hearing the music come on and knowing it was my turn to walk down the aisle with my dad. I had tunnel vision and was only looking at Morgan. In the middle of our ceremony we were able to pause, turn and lock eyes with all of our family and friends and thank them for being there to celebrate with us. This was incredibly special and humbling knowing everyone was there for us and there to support our next step as husband and wife. Morgan: The weather was absolutely perfect as I was standing under the arbor. Hearing the music come on and seeing Diana for the first time as she was coming down the aisle is a memory that stands out from the rest. It was surreal and better than I could have ever imagined. It signified the realness of what was to come, the beginning of our journey as husband and wife. What did your guests say was their favorite facet of the event? Diana: The ceremony, hands down. Almost everyone said it was one of the best ceremonies they’ve ever attended and that our friend Danny did an amazing job officiating and capturing who we are as individuals, as well as the love and connection between us. They also said it was perfect weather and a beautiful venue which really helped set the mood for the entire day. Did your wedding include special details that reflected your individual personalities? Diana: Both Morgan and I love to be outdoors (especially at the beach or hiking) and travel and love our dogs. We are also obsessed with sunsets. One of our favorite places to go is Hawaii. We incorporated these things by placing pictures of our travels at the guest sign in table, used a Hawaiian/beachy theme throughout our wedding (can be seen in the bouquets, men’s leis, table settings and arbor), and picked green as our color to represent our love for nature. We also had my 12-year-old black lab, Pongo, as our ring bearer. What was most stressful leading up to the wedding? How did you cope with that stress? Diana: Finding a dress! I am already an indecisive person as it, but I was in the middle of studying for my Physical Therapy Board Exam and finding a dress was not a priority. Finally I found one less than two months from our wedding day. Did you have to put out fires during the event? Looking back, could those have been prevented? Diana: No! Everything was so smooth and fell into place perfectly. Our day-of coordinator did an amazing job! Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they work well with your vision? Diana: We have both ran, hiked and taken our dogs to Elings Park for the last 10 years and felt that this was a perfect place to represent us both as a couple and as individuals and our love for Santa Barbara County (where we met). Not only that, it has amazing views of both the ocean and mountains, our two favorite things, and a place we could watch the sunset!

What part of the meal did people enjoy most? Was there anything on the menu that you would skip if you had a redo? Diana: DJ’s California Catering killed it! The entire meal was amazing. Their bartenders did a fantastic job preparing our requested signature cocktails and serving at our open bar. They were also the set-up and clean-up crew and were so professional. Everyone commented on how great the service was. And it was so cool to hear the staff say that this was one of the best groups of people they’ve been able to serve and that there was such a great vibe; they could really feel the love and connection between everyone. Weddings can end up feeling like they’re for the guests instead of the bride and groom. What did you do to ensure that the day was wonderful for you? Diana: For starters we planned the entire wedding ourselves. The venue, food, florals, décor, etc. were all things that we loved and felt represented us. Secondly, we told each other to stop every so often to make sure we were present in the moment and take everything in. What is your top piece of advice for couples planning a wedding? Diana: Take your time, there is no rush and start talking to your family and friends who have already planned a wedding! I had plenty of time to plan (a year), and that’s probably why I didn’t feel stressed. And my friends and family were a great help. Start by prioritizing (venue, food, photography, etc) what is most important to have at your wedding; this will immensely help you to stay within your budget, as well as focus on what will make the day perfect for you. Get a day-of coordinator so you can actually enjoy your special day! I enjoyed planning all the details leading up to the wedding; however, if this is something that is stressful for you, hire a coordinator to do all the planning as well.

Angelina Assereto & John-Arthur Barbieri The bride’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. The moment that stood out the most was walking down the aisle after they pronounced us husband and wife. Our family surprised us with throwing confetti poppers. The amount of joy and love that was felt is something we will never forget. What did your guests say was their favorite facet of the event? Our guests had a great time through the whole event. What I think everyone loved the most was being able to spend a lot of time together before and after the wedding date. Those are the perks of having a destination wedding—more quality time. Did your wedding include special details that reflected your individual personalities? Yes, we wanted something laid back and to have an authentic beach vibe. We were able to pull that in with the colors we used—white, baby blue and sand. White roses and seashells tied everything together. What was most stressful leading up to the wedding? How did you cope with that stress? When we arrived at the resort, the venue was still under construction. The staff worked around the clock for three days straight to get it done on time. The best way to cope with that stress was to enjoy the time we had with our family and know that no matter what it would work out. Did you have to put out fires during the event? Looking back, could those have been prevented? We had to postpone the ceremony and reception a couple hours and it actually worked out for the best. We got married during a beautiful sunset and cool breeze. Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they work well with your vision? Bocas Del Toro, Panama worked beautifully for our vision. John and I had traveled to Panama to visit my family and go to Bocas for winter vacation and thought it was a wonderful location that fit our personalities perfectly. What part of the meal did people enjoy most? Was there anything on the menu that you would skip if you had a redo? People loved the authentic Spanish meal that was served. Since we got married in a tropical location, I would have skipped serving coffee with dessert. It was too hot for the weather. Weddings can end up feeling like they’re for the guests instead of the bride and groom. What did you do to ensure that the day was wonderful for you? To let go of the tiny details and enjoy the day with friends, family and be in gratitude for marrying the man of my dreams.

SEPT. 2 2017

The couple’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. Lyca: My step-brother Ilo was there on the day we met each other over eight years ago. We tasked him with performing our wedding ceremony, but he didn’t share his script with us until the wedding day. He really exceeded our expectations with his prose, and we received multiple compliments from our guests. It was very special to us that he was the one to marry us, as he was one of the people who has known us together the longest and has always embraced us as a couple. D i d yo u r we d d i n g i n c l u d e special details that reflected your individual personalities? Lyca: It was important to us that we supported local businesses, so we worked with our friends from the community: DJ Hecktik, Reynaldo’s Bakery, Bloom Floral & Foliage, Fire and Wine Catering and Gina with Jose Eber Salon. Ryan: We planned everything ourselves, so every aspect of the night really reflected our personalities. We are both pretty meticulous, and I think that showed in the cohesive look we achieved, down to the smallest detail, as our son Owen was decked to the nines with the rest of the wedding party. -

W hy d i d yo u c h o o s e yo u r ceremony and reception venues? Did they work well with your vision? Ryan: We chose to have the ceremony locally to share with our family and friends. We fell in love with the University Club because of the indoor and outdoor spaces, the cozy bar, the decor and the ample room for our guests. Breanna and Eli at the club worked with us to realize our vision of the day. Weddings can end up feeling like they’re for the guests instead of the bride and groom. What did you do to ensure that the day was wonderful for you? Lyca & Ryan: To make sure our day was wonderful for us, we chose the venue that was going to make that possible. We had an awesome team that made sure our needs were met. A tap takeover with Island Brewing Company beer poured into customized wedding favor glassware also made it pretty special for us. What is your top piece of advice for couples planning a wedding? Lyca & Ryan: Realize what you want out of your wedding day. Each of you would benefit from picking your top three things that are important and focus on making those things a priority during the planning process. Our top three: date of wedding, venue, dress/ attire. And book early! It feels good to check things off the list and get that much closer to your day!

The bride’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. During our grand entrance, my husband attempted an impromptu backflip. The last time he did one was in high school. It was something I will never forget. What did your guests say was their favorite facet of the event? The churro and cotton candy stations. Did your wedding include special details that reflected your individual personalities? For us it was very important to not only have an open seat but also a cigar bar to honor our cousin Elena Shelton, who was smiling down from above. What was most stressful leading up to the wedding? How did you cope with that stress? The original venue we had in Los Olivos canceled six weeks prior to our wedding. We were lucky enough to have our DJ and photographer assist us in finding a new venue. Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venue? Did they work well with your vision? Santa Barbara Woman’s Club is such a beautiful place. Once plans changed and we were given the opportunity to have our wedding at this venue, we were very excited. They went above and beyond to help us create the wedding of our dreams. Weddings can end up feeling like they’re for the guests instead of the bride and groom. What did you do to ensure that the day was wonderful for you? Fortunately for us, our wedding went just as planned. We really made sure to enjoy the day and soak up as much as we could. What is your top piece of advice for couples planning a wedding? Really focus on what pictures you want with all of your loved ones and the various locations within the venue. Everything happens so fast that it’s easy to miss those moments if you’re not careful.

The groom’s notes on the day: Is there a moment from your wedding that stands out from all the others in your memory? Describe it and explain why it meant so much to you. I have a son from a previous relationship. He was 2 at the wedding and was going to be walked down the aisle with my dad just before Chloe. After I began the procession, my son soiled his diaper. Thinking fast, Chloe, in her wedding dress, changed my son’s messy diaper just in time for him to walk down. (This is the moment that stands out for Chloe as well.) What did you guests say was their favorite facet of the event? The top two things that guests seemed to rave about were our vows that we wrote ourselves, and the beauty of our venue. A lot of people also said it was just different than any other wedding they have gone to. We had people sitting on picnic blankets and hanging out. We wanted to focus on our wedding, not the fancy things, and I think people felt included in our holy and special day. Did your wedding include special details that reflected your individual personalities? All the music that was playing in the background throughout the day was handpicked and had significance to us and our relationship. Many of the elements used at the wedding were used in our home after the wedding, like the rug we got married on, the macrame hanging at the altar, and the chairs we sat in during the reception. Though we spent money on decorative items, we knew we were going to use them after the wedding. We also wanted people to feel included, both of us loving our family and friends, so everything that we did had the intention of loving and including everyone! People like to love you and bring food or help decorate, it makes them feel special! What was most stressful leading up to the wedding? How did you cope with that stress? Since we did not have a wedding planner, it was overwhelming thinking through all the small, important details like: Who would press play on the iPhone, change out the trash bags once they were filled, what if we run out of ice, etc.? We spent hours walking through every detail, and we had a lot of friends and family that we asked in advance to be on-call and ready to help with small tasks that might have come up. I think people were happy that they could help and be a part of what was going on. Did you have to put out fires during the event? Looking back, could those have been prevented? Thankfully there was nothing that we could consider fires at our wedding, only minor transitional glitches that came from not having a DJ, MC or wedding planner. Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they work well with your vision? Our venue was a beautiful backyard that had a large grassy slope and a stage surrounded by a lush green tree canopy backdrop, a tree house and trampoline! We were extremely happy with the fact that it needed minimal floral decorations because it was naturally so beautiful. Instead of renting chairs, we encouraged people to bring their own blanket or camping chair. People seemed to love sitting on the grass.

What part of the meal did people enjoy most? Was there anything on the menu that you would skip if you had a redo? We took a risk and decided to have a potluck. We were nervous there wouldn’t be enough food, but people participated and we had more than enough food. There were so many delicious—often homemade—options, so everyone was able to have something they liked. In order to prevent everyone from bringing the same thing, we divvied up who would bring main dishes, sides, drinks or desserts based on last name.
