Linden Casitas Overpass Project update: Feb. 12 - 18

Linden Avenue

Pile testing at Linden Avenue should conclude this week, after which hydraulic testing equipment will be set up. Dynamic tests will verify that pile lengths are sufficient to match soil strength for the future Linden Avenue overcrossing. Linden Avenue and Ogan Road will be re-striped with lanes shifted to prepare for new bridge construction over the freeway. Re-striping is occurring at night with one-way traffic control on Feb. 14 and 15 from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. The northbound Highway 101 on-ramp at Linden Avenue will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. weekdays as needed for equipment delivery and setup.

Casitas Pass Road

Casitas Pass Road will be re-striped with lanes shifted to prepare for new bridge construction over the freeway. Re-striping is taking place at night with one-way traffic control and flagmen on Feb. 14 and 15 from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. The southbound Highway 101 onramp at Casitas Pass Road will close as

needed weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. to work on the freeway shoulder to prepare for upcoming lane shifts. Crews will pave the old median area on Casitas Pass Road near the ARCO station during the week as weather allows. Flagmen will direct traffic during work. One lane will remain open in each direction on Casitas Pass Road. Later this month crews will begin demolition of the overcrossing barrier in preparation for the new bridge construction.

Highway 101

Crews will re-stripe lanes and shift concrete safety barriers on Highway 101 at night throughout the week. There will be alternating northbound and southbound Highway 101 lane and ramp closures as needed from south of Carpinteria Creek, to north of Linden Avenue beginning at 8 p.m. Northbound Highway 101 lanes and ramps will reopen by 5 a.m., and southbound Highway 101 lanes and ramps will reopen by 7 a.m.

A steel cage encases the pile while the red hammer mechanism pounds it into the soil. Next, workers will weld on the second portion of the pile and drive it the full 104 feet into the ground for testing.

KARLssOn

Workers had to cut the final 104-foot test pile into two pieces in order to use the largest crane on site for driving. Here, the first piece has been partially driven into the soil.

The cables are changed on the lowered crane on the morning of Feb. 14 in order to accommodate the hammer driving equipment.

Talent Showcase to hit the stage

The Rotary Club of Carpinteria and the Plaza Playhouse Theater have teamed up again to put Carpinteria’s finest performers in the spotlight for an evening of music, comedy and dance. The eighth-annual Carpinteria Talent Showcase takes the stage on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. at 4916 Carpinteria Ave. Since its inception eight years ago, the show has raised funds to buy over 60 new instruments and refurbish over 40 used instruments for the Carpinteria Middle School Band Program. Roland Rotz, who chairs the showcase, said that this year’s audience is “in for a big treat that we believe will make the show even greater.” Over 50 percent of the acts are new and include singers, guitarists, fiddlers, pianists, dancers and storytellers. The show will be preceded by a red carpet reception at 6 p.m. that includes free refreshments including beer from Island Brewing Company and wine from Babcock Winery, plus heavy hors d’oeuvres from Jack’s Catering. Tickets are $45 per person for the sellout show and can be purchased tickets at Seastrand (919 Linden Ave) or Sandcastle Time in Casitas Plaza. They are also available online at PlazaTheaterCarpinteria.com or by emailing LinGraf@cox.net.

Open Streets seeks activity providers

Open Streets, a nationwide initiative to promote health and alternative transportation, is coming to Carpinteria this spring, and organizers are inviting community groups, individuals and sponsors to sign up to participate. The first Carpinteria Open Streets is scheduled for Saturday, April 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Select downtown streets will be closed to vehicles for the day and transformed into public parks with free activities related to fitness, community and the arts. The last three events organized by the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition, Traffic Solutions and Global Good Impact took place on Cabrillo Boulevard in Santa Barbara and attracted 20,000 participants to get active in the streets. This year the

family friendly event will be held in Carpinteria on 8th Street (eastbound from Linden Avenue to Palm Avenue), 9th street (westbound from Linden Avenue to Reynolds Avenue) and Linden Avenue (from 9th Street to the beach). Open Streets is seaking groups interested in providing a free activity for participants related to fitness, community, and the arts, e.g. yoga and dance. Registration donations are requested by Feb. 28 to help fund the cost of the event, at the cost of $50 for nonprofits and $100 for all others. Organizers are also seeking sponsors and volunteers.

DLI needs to be done right

A dual immersion school is a great thing if done right. It’s the best possible way to learn English for the English learners, and a great experience/education for native English speaking students. But it’s hard to do. First, you need a bilingual and bicultural principal. This is very important for buy-in and community support. Then, you need exceptional teachers— they have to be absolutely bilingual with a depth and breadth of both English and Spanish vocabulary and language functions. Additionally, these teachers must be excellent educators for the community to get behind the school. Finally, the school needs to have both short- and long-term visions. For example, what happens when these students get to middle school? A bilingual seal should be thought about for high school graduation since colleges are looking at this. One thing we’ve learned in Albany is that it doesn’t work to have an Englishonly track in the school. It has to be all dual immersion. The English-only kids wind up being together throughout their elementary years, and behaviors develop. These are kids whose parents didn’t want them to learn a second language, so they usually don’t have the academic support at home. The school should probably be a magnet school from the beginning. Aliso School should do this, and try to get Kate Kinsella (a leading language consultant from San Francisco who has been working with the school) to help with the planning.

Peace be with you

Peace is a small word with great power, and for some it’s a word that is not understood or observed. Spelled many different ways, it means the same in all languages. For those who choose to not accept/observe peace, ignorance, fear and anger take over. My friend witnessed this firsthand in our town when a woman told two men to “…go back to where you came from before we force you back” in response to the men greeting one other with “As-salamu alaykum,” which is Arabic for “Peace be unto you.” I struggled with my emotions hearing this—my mind consistently tells my heart that this kind of ignorant thinking exists, but my heart just can’t accept it. Who in their right mind is in any position to judge another human being on the color of their skin, the language they speak or on anything but the content of their character? We are all made up of many different nations, anyone who says differently is lying and/or ignorant.

“Who in their right mind is in any position to judge another human being on the color of their skin, the language they speak or on anything but the content of their character?”

––Melinda Bie

To the woman who uttered those terrible words, and to all of those people, in all parts of this world who choose to judge other human beings based on their race, language or status, I say “Peace be with you,” or as-salamu alaykum (Arabic) and from the countries where my families came from: le pace sia con voi (Italian), fred vaere med deg (Norwegian), tsíocháin a bheith in éineacht leat (Irish), and sìth gu robh maille ribh (Scot Gaelic).

Time to fight the stigma of depression

We are in a tumultuous time in our country. Regardless of who you support politically, the fear and uncertainty are unsettling and can leave many of us feeling anxious or depressed. Even in 2017, stigma is attached to depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions. Whether you are homeless, have suffered the loss of a parent or a child, struggle with chronic pain or alcoholism, or have a genetic predisposition for depression, you do not need to feel shame by seeking help. We all know what the alternative is, and suicide only leaves questions unanswered and family members that feel abandoned. Bottom line, I want mental illness to be normalized. I have a hope that Carpinteria will benefit from lifting the stigma and finding ways for us to connect. I imagine a place where people can share their challenges and feel accepted, and where parents of children with unique challenges can band together to feel supported. Have hope; we can rise above the feelings of hopelessness and fear. We can thrive even in the midst of pain.

Art center campaign needs final push

I know that many of you are already big supporters of the Carpinteria Art Center, and I thank you wholeheartedly for all that has been accomplished so far. If you haven’t been by lately, please do come see all the growth taking place and the variety of program offerings available. It is with great enthusiasm and the promise of a bright future for all of Carpinteria that I ask now for the continued support we need this year to really take this endeavor to the finish line. The dream of having an inclusive and vibrant art and community center in the middle of town is nearly realized and with your help, we can make it even better for all! I truly believe that art changes lives for the better. The entire community of Carpinteria deserves to call this center their own. Please join us in the desire to make a positive impact, especially for our youth. Thank you.

Nuclear waste finds its way here

Wastewater from Fukushima is washing up on our Pacific shore. It has been found in the food chain. And Japan just deregulated the nuclear waste and is now disposing of it as other garbage. This could be considered energy efficient— your babies will now glow in the dark and you won’t need a nightlight. There are profits to be made if we remove all consumer protections and regulations. But at what cost?

The unifier has arrived

Trump divided the country? What a crock of crap. After eight years of Obama, it’s rich against poor, men against women, black against white, Democrats against Republicans, illegal immigrants against citizens, and the list goes on. It will take president Trump a while to straighten out the mess Obama left him, but he’s certainly the man that can do it.

Carpinteria runs on volunteers

In January I had the honor of attending the Carpinteria Chamber of Commerce’s annual Community Awards Banquet. It was the first time I have attended this event. I was so impressed with the number of dedicated volunteers in our community. All of the nonprofit organizations in attendance presented certificates of merit to outstanding volunteers in their individual organizations. It is impressive how much work is done for the betterment of our community by hundreds of dedicated and passionate volunteers. Local volunteer organizations are always looking for a few good men and women, and we welcome you to attend our monthly meetings. Today I am asking you to look at your personal community involvement and commitments and consider some really important volunteer positions with the City of Carpinteria. There are a number of openings on various boards, commissions and committees. At the Jan. 23 City Council meeting they continued their vote to fill vacant positions due to lack of applications for the following opportunities: Architectural Review Board, Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Board, Bluffs Management Advisory Board, Tree Advisory Board, Downtown “T” Business Advisory Board, Carpinteria First Committee, Integrated Pest Management Committee and Environmental Review Committee. I encourage you to look at how you may contribute as a volunteer for these important positions. Applications are due to the Carpinteria City Clerk by March 17, and will be considered by the City Council at their meeting March 27.

Traditionally, horse riders and dog walkers wave to each other in passing and generally get along. The December incident was a rarity, but as the email writer complained, the incident spoiled everything (for dogs). Since then, Animal Control has been diligent in patrolling Summerland beach and ticketing owners of loose dogs. Those tickets are steep, so dog owners should be vigilant in policing their dogs!

City bemoans lack of board participation, extends application deadline

Puddles and bubbles cvn

it takes a village

By Lea Boyd

Because the number of applicants fell far short of vacancies on the City of Carpinteria’s volunteer boards, the City Council reopened the application window at its Feb. 13 meeting in hopes of attracting more residents who are willing to serve. “We should start beating the bush right now and ask members of the public who have an interest in their city to step forward and participate in some of these things,” said Councilman Al Clark. Appointments to the city’s board, committees and commissions take place every two years. Appointees serve two-year terms, and typically hold their seats until informing the city of a desire to retire. This year, several boards have retiring members, and a handful of residents have applied for positions on multiple boards. “There are quite a bit of mixing and matching opportunities available here,” said City Manager Dave Durflinger. The council elected to continue the matter of appointments to its March 27 meeting and extend the application deadline to March 17. Seated members will remain in their positions until new appointments are made.

City volunteer boards

Planning Commission: No vacancies. Architectural Review Board: One vacancy. Rachelle Gahan wishes to retire. Richard Weinberg and Russell Ruiz applied. Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Board: Two vacancies. Catherine Overman wishes to retire. Richard Weinberg applied. Bluffs Management Advisory Board: Two vacancies. Patrick Crooks, Terrence Ford and Russell Ruiz applied. Tree Advisory Board: One vacancy. Leland Walmsey wishes to retire. Kathleen Reddington applied. Downtown T Business Advisory Board: Two vacancies. Lynda Lang and Joyce Donaldson wish to retire. Richard Weinberg applied. Carpinteria First Committee: Three vacancies (one Chamber of Commerce representative, two at large). Monica Solorzano applied. Integrative Pest Management Advisory Committee: Up to eight vacancies. Patrick Crooks, Terrence Ford and Russell Ruiz applied.

Council to consider retail Styrofoam ban

The Carpinteria City Council announced at its Feb. 13 meeting that it

will discuss a retail ban on polystyrene products at an upcoming meeting. Several members of the public, including representatives from Santa Barbara Channelkeeper and the Community Environmental Council, attended the meeting to request that the council join the 19 other California cities with bans on polystyrene, also known as Styrofoam. Carpinteria banned the use of polystyrene containers at local eateries in 2009, but products made of polystyrene, such as coolers, still can be sold in the city. Speakers who support a ban cited the material’s pervasive pollution of waterways. It breaks down into tiny pieces that can harm wildlife and are difficult to remove from the environment. Kaia Statchel, a representative from Save the Mermaids, told the council that at a recent beach cleanup she led in Carpinteria, “We found not hundreds but thousands of pieces of Styrofoam.”

Midyear budget on track

A few minor curveballs have been thrown at the city’s 2016-2017 budget, but overall projections from last summer are on pace with reality, the council learned at its midyear budget review. Temporary staff vacancies have saved the city $95,000 in personnel costs in the six months, but unexpected costs have arisen as well. Among those, the city now expects to spend $11,000 to hire a lawyer for its upcoming labor negotiations, $24,000 in property insurance premium increases and $30,000 on a potential resident survey. Overall, the ending available fund balance of $1.33 million is $18,000 over the adopted budget.

A couple weeks ago, I was inspired by a young Carpinterian and his caregiver (father?) who, encountering a puddle, had the ingenuity to add dish soap, put on rainboots, lower the training wheels on his bike and block the bike from rolling forward so that he could peddle away and churn the back wheel into the puddle. The puddle was brimming with bubbles, and the whole area smelled fresh and clean. The best part was the energy and the big smiles! The boy was a wet mess, and both boy and man were beaming and sharing their joy with passersby like me. What a pleasure to run across these two and to soak up their fun. I could feel my own smile, and it stayed with me— what fun! Feelings are contagious, and I was so very glad to catch theirs. I hope I passed that energy and joy to others. I asked if I could take their picture (they said yes—and I have pulled it up on my phone several times when I needed a little inspiration. May we all find joy in whatever we happen upon. I did a little internet surfing on ways to add an extra zing of fun to our lives. Music, friends, finding free time to be outdoors and smell the roses, playing with (or like) kids, and games all were high on the list. All require time and being present with what you are doing.

arts Council seeks community support

David Powdrell, co-chair of the Carpinteria Arts Center, thanked the council and community for its support of the center’s efforts to complete a $3.1 million campaign for the purchase, remodel and endowment fund creation for the expanded center. “It’s true that when Carpinterians set their mind on something, get out of the way, they’re going to make it happen,” he said. He noted that $960,000 remains to be raised by December 31 in order to avoid an additional $225,000 in financing costs from the purchase of the Cajun Kitchen building.

the moment, not thinking about the next “must-do.” That’s the only way it works. Things seem so complicated these days. Families are stressed by the political environment and having just too much to do. But really, sometimes making bubbles and smiles and spreading joy is the most important thing you can do. Kids should be kids and adults should let the kids in them out sometimes. I don’t know if it’s too late to make a new year’s resolution, but that’s mine: let the kid in me out more often and have fun. Who knows?

Considering a home purchase? CVN

WHERE THE HEART IS SARAH SMITH You have done some research, you have browsed the market, and you have made the decision to purchase a home. Your financing is all in order (let’s talk about this next month). Now what? The detailed process of purchasing a home can be a very challenging one, and choosing just the right one for you and your family can be overwhelming. It is one of the largest purchases you will ever make. Here are some steps I like to walk through with my buyers while they consider if a particular home is right for them. 1. GET TO KNOW THE NEIGHBORS. Don’t be shy about introducing yourself to neighbors—not just the immediate neighbors but as many neighbors as you can. It is helpful to familiarize yourselves with the people you will be living next to. Often times these neighbors have valuable information regarding not only the street and surrounding area but even about the property you are considering. 2. VISIT THE PROPERTY AT DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY. Try to view the property inside and out at different times of the day and also on different days of the week. It is important to know what neighborhood and street activity is like both in the morning, evening, middle of day and also a weekday versus weekend. If you are close to popular amenities such as the beach or parks, you may see a huge increase in activities and noise if you visit on a Saturday afternoon instead of midday during the week. You may also get a better idea of how many people are living in your neighborhood by visiting after work hours and in the evening. You may see a large increase in cars parked on the street if you just drive by the property later in the evening. What once seemed like a quiet cul de sac may seem congested and overcrowded with cars at 7 p.m. 3. CHECK ON FUTURE LIMITATIONS. Are you purchasing your house because you love the view? Or perhaps you plan on expanding the exiting square footage? A visit to the city or county planning department might be in order. It is important to know what limitations, if any, the surrounding properties as well as the one you are considering have. That mountain view may only be temporary if your across the street neighbor decides to put on a second floor.

4. VISIT OTHER OPEN HOUSES IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD AS WELL AS IN OTHERS. Knowledge is powerful, and even though you may have your heart set on one particular property, it is important to visit others. I am constantly encouraging my clients to view as many properties as they can. This helps them understand the market value of what they are purchasing. It also helps them to identify what they “have to have” and what they can live without. It doesn’t hurt to look. 5. DON’T MAKE DECISIONS OUT OF HASTE AND DON’T WORK ON SOMEONE ELSE’S TIMELINE. Purchasing a property can be challenging, and no good decisions come out of haste. Pre approval letters from lenders generally expire in 30 days so make sure you stay in contact with your lender and keep your letter up to date and ready to go—you never know when your dream house is going to hit the market.

Health Care Jitters

Life after Obamacare?

By MelinDA BurnS Daniel Gutiérrez, 59, didn’t want to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. He flat-out didn’t like the idea of accepting a handout. For 25 years Gutiérrez had a full-time job as a dishwasher and food preparation worker at Peabody’s, a popular restaurant in Montecito. But when Peabody’s closed in 2012, he lost the job and the health benefits that came with it. Gutiérrez paid the $95 penalty fee for failing to sign up for Obamacare during 2014, when the health care reform went into effect. He paid the $325 penalty for 2015, too. But he balked at paying the $695 penalty for 2016. Gutiérrez now works at a restaurant in Carpinteria three days per week. He gets minimum wage plus tips—and no benefits. so, undeterred by the republican campaign to repeal Obamacare, Gutiérrez made an appointment last January at the county Health Care Center on the aptlynamed Camino del Remedio (Remedy Road). He found he was eligible for MediCal under the new law, and he signed up. “since 1982 when I started working, I have never tried to take government help,” Gutiérrez said. “I thought I should give others a chance who might need it more. But now my circumstances have changed, and I am asking for it.” One in 10 county residents now has health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, state and county records show. The federal funding that came with it has breathed new life into at least 12 South Coast clinics serving low-income residents. A repeal of the Affordable Care Act could jeopardize up to $140 million per year in federal funding that pays for the Medi-Cal expansion in Santa Barbara and san Luis Obispo counties, said Bob Freeman, who administers the program as the CEO of CenCal Health. nearly one in three santa Barbara County residents—and more than one in three statewide—are now enrolled in Medi-Cal, getting free or low-cost care. “Cutting back on the spending does not cut back on the need,” Freeman said. “It would be

Carpinterian Daniel Gutiérrez is one of thousands in Santa Barbara County who are insured under the Affordable Care Act. a setback for our mission.” santa Barbara County has seen a 68 percent increase in all Medi-Cal enrollment over pre-reform levels, wildly exceeding expectations, said Maria Gardner, a deputy director of the county Department of Social Services. “It’s just astronomical,” she said. “I haven’t gone through anything as significant as this in my 23-year career. It’s been a busy three years. We’ve made a big dent in the uninsured in our county.” Kurt Ransohoff, CEO of Sansum Clinic, said the Affordable Care Act has been challenging for providers, especially because there is a shortage of primary care doctors to meet the new demand. Sansum has added seven and would hire more, he said, but they “are really hard to find.” Covered California, the marketplace for private insurance under the law, has some very high deductibles, and that is hard for patients, ransohoff said. But, he said, it would be devastating to return to the days when people went bankrupt to pay their medical bills and faced ruined lives. “You’d meet very sick patients in your career—they really stand out in

your mind—who had just lost their job or maybe moved,” he said. “And you’d sit there and realize they couldn’t get health insurance. That was a horrible feeling.” santa Barbara County’s eight health clinics stand to lose as much as $4 million per year if the Affordable Care Act is repealed, said Doug Metz, a deputy director of county Public Health. Since the reform went into effect, he said, the clinics have added six primary care providers and eight support staff. During pre-reform years, the clinics regularly ran up annual deficits of up to $2 million, requiring cuts in staffing and services to make up the difference, Metz said. At santa Barbara and Goleta Valley Cottage hospitals, the cost of charity care for the uninsured dropped from $17 million in 2012 to $4 million last year, CEO ron Werft said. The cost is shifted to patients with private and employerpaid insurance, he said. Emergency room visits have steadily increased, but that’s in part because it takes time to reorient people on how to use their new insurance, Werft said. Medi-Cal and Medicaid patients make up about 65 percent of the total at Cottage.

“We’re just starting to get this right, where people have doctors and get appointments and have a relationship with their personal physician,” Werft said. “It’s so important that we not repeal this act without knowing what’s replacing it. There are a lot of moving parts here.” The sheer numbers of newly insured Californians underscore how hard it will be for republicans to fashion a replacement bill, as President Donald Trump effectively conceded in the first week of February, saying it may take until sometime next year. Among the legislators now under pressure to come up with a plan, is Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) the majority leader in Congress and a longtime opponent of the Affordable Care Act. McCarthy represents a district in which more than 80,000 people are now insured under the law, according to Health Access, a Sacramento-based consumer advocacy coalition. On Jan. 27, hundreds of protesters rallied at McCarthy’s district offices in Bakersfield in support of the Affordable Care Act. In a recent op-ed piece to the Sacramento Bee, McCarthy called the quality of insurance under the law “dismal.” He said republicans planned to rescue Americans from the “imminent crash” of the insurance system by giving them “a refundable tax credit delivered every month.” With it, McCarthy wrote, Americans could “purchase the health care they choose, if they choose to do so.” State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson says the system works. “It’s the best that’s out there, short of a single-payer solution,” she said, referring to a national health care system in which a single public agency organizes the financing. “The bottom line is the Republicans have been screaming about Obamacare for some time. They want to get rid of the Affordable Care Act and now suddenly it’s on their watch, and they’ve got to own it.” Could California fund the Medi-Cal expansion on its own? The state received $19 billion in federal funding for it during the 2016-2017 fiscal year. “I don’t think we could sustain it,” Jackson said. “We’re trying not to overcommit. We are basically waiting with some anxiousness, trying to be ready in case it happens.”

Kindergarten en Español

Dual Language Immersion to start with two Canalino classes By Peter Dugré One year later, parents pushing for a Dual Language Immersion program in Carpinteria Unified School District got the school board on board with the pilot project to educate students in both Spanish and English. At the Feb. 14 CUSD Board of Education meeting, boardmembers voted 4-1 (Rogelio Delgado dissenting) to start the voluntary program in two Canalino School kindergarten classrooms in the fall. Last spring, the school board had arrived within inches from the finish line of implementing the program that has had vocal parent support before turning back and opting to send the plan back for further review. “I support the program. It’s the first new academic program offered in the district that I can remember. We have no problem supporting sports, but have yet to be placed on the map for academics,” commented boardmember Maureen Foley Claffey. The six-year pilot will begin with two kindergarten classes comprised of 24 students. To enroll, students must be entered in a lottery, and classes will be comprised of one-third English-speaking students, one-third English Learners and one-third Spanish-speaking. At the kindergarten level, students will be instructed at a ratio of 90 percent Spanish and 10 percent English. As students progress through the elementary grade levels, the proportion of Spanish will drop and English will

rise until they reach 50-50 in fourth and fifth grades. A date has yet to be set for the lottery, but kindergarten enrollment begins in early March. The meeting overflowed with supporters who have pushed for over a year to see the program put in place. Supporters cited tomes of studies that indicate students emerging from DLI programs are in improved academic and cognitive positions. Other benefits highlighted were students gaining greater perspective on other cultures and the fostering of unity among students and families. During public comment, parent Louisa Ornelas said, “I was taught to read and write in Spanish before English and have had job opportunities I never would have had.” In DLI, Spanish-speaking students have the opportunity to master academic concepts in their native tongue while gradually acquiring English. The overarching goal of the program is to close the achievement gap for students who enter kindergarten speaking Spanish only. DLI also affords English speaking students the opportunity to learn Spanish at an early age, which increases their chance at fluency. Acting Superintendent Jamie Persoon said, “It’s very interesting to me when people say that the kids will go home and the parents won’t be able to help them with their homework, because they’re doing it in Spanish. I’d like everyone to remember this is what already happens to over half of our students every day. … If you look at it from a different perspective.” Concerns that saw the school board send DLI plans back to committee last spring included unintended staffing issues due to the necessity of bilingual teachers, a debate over whether to also offer the program at Aliso School and how students taking state testing in English might suffer from early Spanish instruction. The school board decided that pros outweigh the cons.

School Boardmember Michelle Robertson: “I agree our district needs to offer parental options within our public school system instead of having to go outside. We need to keep our students here with us.” Acting Superintendent Jamie Persoon: “It’s very interesting to me when people say that the kids will go home and the parents won’t be able to help them with their homework, because they’re doing it in Spanish. I’d like everyone to remember this is what already happens to over half of our students every day. … If you look at it from a different perspective.” Connie McDonald: “I think it’s very, very demeaning to everyone. People who live in America need to speak English. It breaks my heart to watch this happening again, because it’s going to fail.” School boardmember Michelle Robertson said, “I agree our district needs to offer parental options within our public school system instead of them having to go outside. We need to keep our students here with us.” The motion to launch the pilot program included provisions to revisit the program with annual assessment of how it’s going and establishing a district committee for language programs. Aliso School Principal Dr. Michelle Fox said that Aliso would like to observe for a year to see how it goes at Canalino. There is some concern among Aliso teachers that the program might draw students away from Aliso and affect staffing needs. In related discussions, the school board contemplated the passage of Proposition 58 last November, which opens the door to bilingual education and mandatory language enrichment in schools. In voting

against the DLI program, boardmember Delgado said he wanted to wait until the California Department of Education releases final language on the proposition. Other boardmembers commented that DLI might put CUSD ahead of the curve of complying with the imminent state law.

Tab Hunter’s touching story to be screened

The Plaza Playhouse Theater will screen the 2015 documentary, “Tab Hunter Confidential” on Sunday, March 12 at 2 p.m. with a Q&A to follow with Hunter, an actor now in his 80s and living in Montecito. Tab Hunter shot to movie stardom in the 1950s with his matineeidol good looks and his pairing with some of the most beautiful leading ladies of the time, but he carried a secret that would have cost him everything. The documentary, based on Hunter’s 2005 book by the same name, provides an insider’s perspective on the Hollywood star-making machine and highlights the fear many actors lived with of being publicly “outed” as gay, which was a career-killing revelation at the time. Following the film, Hunter and his longtime partner, Allan Glaser, who also produced the documentary, will take the “Tab Hunter Confidential” stage with moderator Peter Bie. Tickets are $20 screens at Plaza Playhouse general admission and available online at plaza- next month. theatercarpinteria.com and (if not sold out) at the theater box office one hour prior to showtime. The Plaza Playhouse Theater is located at 4916 Carpinteria Ave.

Brickley’s pursuit of Beatles material has taken him back to the band’s roots.

Beatles fan publishes band memoir

Carpinterian Mark Brickley recently took his lifelong fascination with The Beatles and transformed it into a memoir about the most popular band in history. “Postcards From Liverpool: Beatles Moments & Memoirs” traces The Beatles source sounds and songwriting influences. It includes eight backstories, including how the band struggled to record its first record, “Love Me Do.” It also looks back at The Beatles’ 1968 trip to Rishikesh, India. The book has 40 photographs taken by the author that include images of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Neil Young, Pattie Boyd, The Cavern Club and Ravi Shankar. “I’ve always loved The Beatles’ sound,” said Brickley. “Their harmonies move together like parallel lines. The power of the music they created hasn’t been diminished with the passing of time. In researching the book I wanted to uncover rarely heard backstories about the band. I’ve aspired to have something new in every chapter that Beatles fans might not have read before, or heard about.” “Postcards” includes six Beatlesfocused interviews including local rock songwriter Jay Ferguson (Spirit and JoJo Gunne), Paul McCartney’s son James and early Apple Records artist Jackie Lomax. Other moments include conversation with Ringo Starr and Beatles tours of London and Liverpool. The book concludes with a post-Beatles album review, Merseybeat Music Quiz and revealing Author’sI nterview. Brickley’s own Beatles library has grown to over 125 titles, including books, albums and videos. Carpinteria film-

Maria Mitchell of Head to Toe hoists her trophy for winning the Best Dressed Window Contest sponsored by the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Head to Toe wins first Window Dressing Contest

Window decorating consumed businesses throughout Carpinteria for the last couple weeks, and it all led up to Tuesday afternoon when the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce honored Maria Mitchell of Head to Toe as the winner of its first Best Dressed Window Contest. Mitchell received $100, a trophy and a plaque for her window bursting with hanging paper hearts, orchids and an array of homemade sweets. Head to Toe staff adorns the salon in honor of every holiday, rotating responsibility for decorations. When Mitchell, who loves Valentine’s Day, took her turn, it happened to coincide with the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural window dressing contest. She plans to use her winnings, to treat coworkers to dinner.

Second place in the contest was awarded to the Carpinteria unit of United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara. Over a dozen businesses participated in the first contest. Members of the public were encouraged to vote through social media, and final judging took place on Feb. 13 at 4 p.m. The judging panel was made up of award recipients from the Chamber’s recent Community Awards Banquet, as well as Chamber Ambassadors. Chamber CEO Joyce Donaldson said the contest was a great success. “In an effort to increase shopping and foot traffic in Carpinteria during the season of love, the contest added a colorful flair to the windows and the festive decorations continued inside, enticing shoppers to further explore the shops,” she said.

Dear Parking PerPlexeD, The problem in most neighborhoods is that people fill their garages with too much stuff—some of it worthless—and then they can’t get their car into the garage. It puzzles me why that stuff is there year after year and their expensive car gets parked in the driveway. Don’t they know about storage units for rent? Some families own several cars and the extras go on the street. Any car parked for 72 hours is subject to towing, so if you see the same car parked in the same spot for a long time, call city code enforcement. The streets are public property so we all have a right to park on the street. Out of consideration for neighbors, park in front of your own house first. What about organizing a neighborhood garage sale and maybe that will clear up space in the garage and maybe the street? Dear Donnie, I have been going to the same hairstylist for almost 10 years. recently he took off on a month-long vacation. While he was gone another stylist handled his clients. The problem is that the substitute is much better and cheaper. I love the new style he gave me, and I enjoy going to him. What shall I do when my regular stylist gets back? SigneD, StyliSt SwaP Dear StyliSt SwaP, That is a problem since it is the same salon. Stylists will tell you that it happens and they feel OK with the switch. That is not true for all stylists. Tell the substitute stylist that you no longer want to go back to your regular stylist and ask his advice. Since he spends every day with your former stylist, he may feel uncomfortable taking you on as a client. I think you need to find another salon. Ask friends for recommendations. As you explore different salons, tell the new stylist what you like about your new hairdo and also ask for suggestions. It is important to feel comfortable with a personal service provider and as the client it is solely your decision. Dear Donnie, I’m approaching my 60th birthday and I feel guilty about becoming a couch potato. It has been way too long since I had any exercise routine. How can I motivate myself to get up and get going? I’m not happy the way I look and feel. Any ideas that aren’t too extreme? SigneD, olDer anD lazier

The Best Dressed window in town belongs to Head to Toe.

Dear olDer anD lazier, Every expert on health and fitness will tell you the importance of regular exercise. I’m sure that isn’t news to you. A person is more inclined to exercise if they have a buddy. There are several gyms in Carpinteria offering different levels of intensity. Also our local pool offers water aerobics. First get a friend who will go with you. Then decide to find a seniors class at one of these places. Set an attendance goal

for yourself—no excuses. Make a commitment for at least twice a week. The socialization will be good for you and keep you motivated. After a period of inactivity I joined a senior yoga class. It is safe, easy and helpful. Yoga is good for your heart, your circulation and your blood pressure. Tai chi and qi gong are also excellent exercises. All are affordable and soon you will look and feel wonderful. I should also mention the value of walking. Walk at least 20 minutes a day, rain or shine. Get a dog or a buddy for this. You’ll be amazed how much more motivated you will feel. Dear Donnie, neighbors have noticed a peeping tom in our neighborhood recently. They’ve called the police, but when the police arrive they can’t find anybody. It really makes me feel uneasy as I live alone. What should I do? SigneD, PeePer ProblemS Dear PeePer ProblemS, Many people place motion detector lights around their house to alert them of any trespassers. Others use some sort of surveillance cameras. Is the prowler only seen at one particular house? Often teenaged boys will stalk a girl from school. Ask the parents of teenagers in your neighborhood to take precautions. Solar powered motion detectors are a good way to go. Has anything been taken from anyone’s home? Do you have neighborhood Watch? That keeps neighbors connected and includes everyone’s phone number. We have all been told “if you see something, say something.” Many people who live alone feel safer with one of the life alert services. A modest fee allows you to call for help for any reason. If you fall or suspect a peeping tom, you just push a button and you are connected to a dispatcher. Based on your complaint, the right agency will respond quickly. Dear Donnie, Ever since we moved to Carpinteria two years ago we have been inundated with uninvited guests. We only have a two-bedroom apartment for a family of three. no guest room, but families from our old hometown think nothing of asking to vacation with us. Some say, “We just need a floor to throw our sleeping bags on. We won’t be any trouble at all.” But when they get here they cook, do laundry and generally get in the way. My wife is going crazy but just can’t say no. How do we pull in the welcome mat? SigneD, no Vacancy Here Dear no Vacancy, That happens to everybody who moves here. We live in paradise and post pictures of our beautiful town, our beach and our sunsets. We write glowing Christmas cards about how much we love it here. naturally, those who live in boring places want to check it out for themselves and what better way than to impose on you? next time someone calls simply say, “We’d love to see you, but we’re all booked up. There are four motels in town plus a beachfront State Park. Also there are condos right near the beach that rent by the week. If you want info on any of those places, let us know.” Start posting pictures of June Gloom instead of such tempting images. That might discourage the uninvited guests. Buy a new doormat that doesn’t say “Welcome.” Tell your wife to refer all requests to you. Hope this helps. Donnie Nair leads the Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Group and the annual Carpinteria Beautiful Home and Garden tour. Her column appears the third Thursday of the month. Questions are subject to editing, and not all will be answered.

Rams out-hoop Lancers, 70-58

Pierce Lundt drives hard to the basket, leading Cate into an early advantage. BY ALONZO OROZCO No amount of water would put a damper on Senior Night last Wednesday, Feb. 8, for the Cate School boys basketball team. With water seeping onto their home court at Sprague Gymnasium

that afternoon, the final regular season game against Grace Brethren had to be relocated to another venue. So the Rams and their fans promptly migrated down the mesa to Carpinteria High School’s Warriors Gym, and just as promptly, Cate took care of business by beating the Lancers, 70-58. With the win, Cate finishes second in the Frontier League with a 7-3 record, 11-5 overall behind co-champions Foothill Tech and Thacher. The seventhranked team in CIF Southern Section Division VI, the Rams earned a spot in

the playoffs with a matchup on the road against Westmark of Encino on Feb. 15. Although Grace Brethren finished the season winless at 0-10 in league and 0-22 overall, the Lancers battled Cate from the start. “They’re a very young team, a little bit of inexperience, but they’re going to be good next year,” said Rams coach Andy Gil. Led by Pierce Lundt, one of the squad’s four seniors, Cate got off to a 20-13 start, largely due to the aggressive play of the Rams guard, who scored 10 first-quarter points. Lundt’s fellow seniors also played a key role in the vic-

tory with Mason Mackall contributing 11, Chase McCaw pitching in four and Bryce Huerta knocking down a three. “It was our Senior Night, so we really tried to emphasize that their leadership was helpful all season; as long as they’re working hard, good things are going to happen,” explained Gil. The steady play of junior Marko Pliso was also key in the win. His 16 points had him tied for team high honors with Lundt. The Rams would go into the half leading 38-22. Junior Noah Meyer’s bucket inside increased the lead in the third to 54-32, and Cate went into the final quarter with a 20-point lead at 54-34. A scoring barrage by Grace Brethren’s Jack Jankowski would reduce the deficit to 57-44. Jankowski would lead all scorers with 21. Two free throws by the senior would get the Lancers as close as 12, but a Pliso lay-up widened the margin to 62-48. Mackall’s rebound and follow-in would build the lead up to 68-48 to put the game out of reach. Although happy with the win, Gil still sees some room for improvement. “I thought it was a really good team win; we shared the ball well,” said the second-year coach. He added that the team “got excellent play on both sides of the ball from Andy McHarg, Khadim Pouye and Chase McCaw.” For the Rams who missed the playoffs last season, it’s a chance to see how they’ll fare in CIF. “Taking care of the little ticky-tack stuff is how we’re going to be successful in the playoffs,” said Gil. “As long as we have less turnovers, we’ll be okay.”

CHS girls soccer takes league title By Alonzo orozCo

For just the second time in warrior history, the Carpinteria High School girls soccer team claimed the league title. Facing Fillmore for the second time in a week on Feb. 10, the warriors landed a 2-1 victory in a rematch that followed a loss to the Flashes two days earlier. The Frontier League title is the school’s first for girls soccer since 2008, and its second overall. Because the pitch at Valley Memorial Stadium was too muddy to play on, the game day and site were changed to St. Bonaventure High School. with Fillmore just a game behind the warriors in the standings, the Flashes needed to win to become league champs—a sweep over Carpinteria would have been the deciding factor. “This was a very physical but clean game, and it was just a downright battle all over the field in every position,” said warrior Coach Charles Bryant. According to Bryant, the team’s loss

earlier to Fillmore may have been the best thing that could have happened, as the squad had not lost in two months. “i think that (loss) opened our eyes quite a bit, and it made us much more hungry to perform at a higher level,” explained Bryant. Spectacular goalkeeping by laura Valdez and two goals by Elizabeth Estrada helped clinch the victory, which Bryant described as “just an incredible win by a great group of girls.” Carpinteria finished the regular season 14-5 overall and 12-1 in the Frontier league. The warriors are scheduled to open the CiF Division Vii playoffs at home today, Feb. 16, against the winner of Pilibos versus St. Bonaventure with the time still to be determined. “They find a way to adapt if they are playing an opponent with a different style,” said Bryant of his team. “CIF will bring on some unfamiliar teams but the way our girls are competing, i am hoping they can have a good run,” concluded Bryant.

Disturbances no disturbances were recorded. Natural History Notes

last year there were fewer than half the number of adult seals and pups recorded than had been observed in several preceding years. This week Sealwatchers were thrilled to see the first pup, but by this time in previous years there were several. To date, no definitive explanations are known.

More Info

The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. Call 684-2247 or email carpsealwatch@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering.

On Feb. 6 at approximately 9:30 a.m. a Sheriff’s deputy conducted a records check on a Ford Explorer parked at a motel on Via Real, and discovered that there was a warrant for the arrest of the registered owner of the vehicle. After waiting for a second deputy to arrive, the reporting deputy approached the Explorer and found a man sitting in the passenger seat who identified himself with a California driver’s license matching the name of the vehicle owner/subject of the warrant. The deputy took the man into custody. The man said he was staying at the motel with a female friend, and gave deputies her name and room number. A records check on the woman revealed a warrant for her arrest and she was also taken into custody. During a search under the woman’s probation terms, deputies discovered a blue pipe for smoking methamphetamine inside a clear plastic makeup case. A black toiletry bag contained two uncapped syringes with a clear liquid inside, which the deputy suspected was also methamphetamine. When asked if the bag belonged to him, the man said that it did. The man’s vehicle was left parked at the motel, and he and the woman were booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on their outstanding warrants, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.

Three little baggies

On Feb. 4 at approximately 8 a.m. deputies were dispatched on a report of a suspicious vehicle parked in the area of La Mesa Plaza and Santa Rosa Lane. The reporting party described a vehicle with a man sitting inside who seemed to be living or conducting business out of the car, with several people coming and going. Upon arrival the reporting deputy saw a vehicle matching the description given and walked to the passenger side. The vehicle’s windows were heavily tinted and the deputy could not see inside, although he heard a voice and knocked on the door asking the person to open it. A man opened the door, and the deputy

a monthly muse melinda wittwer When I first heard the term Best Friends Forever, I thought, “This is too corny to ever become an accepted phrase of the English language.” How wrong I was. Not only is BFF used in texting, it is also an expression used verbally in adult conversations and in the traditional written form represented by notes passed during class by junior high students. But I don’t want to discuss the tacky origins of BFF. Instead I want to mull over the concept of having a best friend, be it for a day, a week or a lifetime. Now I have friends from college that

asked if there were any other people in the car. The man said there were not, but the deputy heard noises coming from the backseat, then looked behind the passenger seat where “there was in fact another male seated in the rear passenger seat.” Because the man had told the deputy that there was no one else in the car and because of the tinted windows, the deputy opened the rear passenger door for his own safety. He asked the men in the car if they were on probation or parole, and the first man he had spoken to in the front passenger seat said that he was on probation. The deputy called for backup and two other deputies arrived. A third man approached the vehicle on foot, stating that the men inside were his friends and that he’d parked his car there because he did not want his ex-girlfriend to know that he was home. The first man the deputy spoke to provided his California ID, but the man in the back passenger seat said he did not have any ID on him, then provided deputies with a name and date of birth. The name and DOB, however, did not match any records the deputies had, and the man provided another name that did match records that revealed he was on probation for a weapons violation and had a no bail felony warrant for his arrest out of Ventura County. The man said that he had provided a false name because he knew he had a felony warrant and had wanted to attend a family function. When the deputy asked him if he had any drugs, the man said he had “meth in his right front pants pocket.” The deputy searched the man’s pockets and found three small baggies of suspected methamphetamine. The man was arrested and transported to Santa Barbara County Jail, and the other two men were released at the scene.

He did not want any police contact

On Feb. 6 at approximately 2:30 p.m. deputies patrolling Via Real saw a man they knew to be on active county probation, stopped their car and approached him to conduct a probation search. The man ran from the deputies northbound through an apartment complex where

a woman pointed out the direction he was heading to one of the deputies who pursued him on foot. The reporting deputy stated that the woman told him the man had dropped what appeared to the deputy to be a glass pipe and a package. Continuing after the man on foot, the deputy observed him running westbound towards the corner of Birch and Poplar streets, and shouted a command for him to stop. The man reportedly turned around and looked at the deputy, then continued running and hopped a chainlink fence onto property owned by a nursery. Another deputy responded to the area and drove his vehicle onto the private road of the nursery, and a worker there pointed to where the man was hiding. That deputy drew his weapon and ordered the man to show his hands, then radioed the deputy who had given chase on foot that he had located the man. The deputy arrived on foot and placed the man under arrest, handcuffing him. The deputy in the patrol vehicle then took the man to the Carpinteria Sheriff’s station, and the deputy who had given chase returned to the apartment complex to investigate the items that the woman had said the man running away had dropped. Those items turned out to be two small flashlights. Upon returning to the Carpinteria station, the deputy read the man his admonition of rights and asked him if he wished to speak. “I’m going to tell you the truth,” the deputy reported the man saying. The man said he had been in Ventura with a friend who then dropped him off in Carpinteria. Upon seeing the Sheriff’s deputies, the man said he ran because he did not want to have contact with them. He admitted hopping the fence and hiding, stating that he was scared. The deputy contacted the man’s probation officer who placed a “detainer” on him. A “Health and Safety Code 11550 examination” was conducted on the man, who was determined to be under the influence of a controlled substance. The man said he could not provide a urine sample, and was provided with 8 ounces of water. As he was being booked into Santa Barbara County Jail the man refused to provide a urine sample since he was already being charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance.

It’s small, but it’s mine

On Feb. 4 at approximately 11 p.m. two deputies were walking behind an apartment complex on Concha Loma Drive.

What is a BFF?

I see once or twice a year. Even though we don’t make much effort to communicate on a regular basis, when we do get together it’s easy, relaxed and familiar. But are these my Best Friends Forever? We share a common history that revolves around only three or four years, years full of growing into adults and surviving impulsive stupidity, but we share very little of the day to day activities that make up our present worlds. My writing group and my pottery class both consist of a group of very talented people. These individuals feed my creative side, laugh at my mistakes and encourage me to keep reaching for better sentences or to throw perfect pots, but they would be hard pressed to come up with one of my son’s names. I also have friends I met while teaching. We have complained together, suffered together, and shared the joys, both large and small, that come from working daily with children. Now that we are no longer teaching, we meet for coffee to catch up and to gossip. Rarely

do these friends interact with members of my family. Perhaps I should look to my relatives as I try to define BFF. Surely a husband should be a BFF, but seldom does a husband (my husband anyway) want to go on an adventure to the Camarillo Outlets or visit all the quilt stores on Cape Cod or see every sentimental chick flick—neither do my sons. So I am back to where I started—what is a BFF? Even if I could come up with a remarkable definition for a best friend, “forever” is an incredibly long period of time to actually like someone. Friendships, like marriages, ebb and flow and take work. How many people do we really like well enough to commit to a forever relationship? A week and a half I can handle, no problem, but forever? Anyway, I believe a best friend should be someone who will tell me the truth when I need to hear it. For instance, when I want to buy that orange sweater that makes me look like a large pumpkin or my new hairstyle resembles a helmet or a chin

The reporting deputy noted that deputies “often walk behind the apartments because there is frequent use of illegal narcotics in the area behind the apartments.” As the deputies passed a carport they noticed a small radio playing, a pizza box, several drinking cups with liquid inside and a container of beer “that was still cold.” Based on the radio playing and the food and drinks that were left around the carport, the deputies believed that people had fled as they approached. A storage compartment (approximately 4 feet by 3.5 feet) at the back of the carport was partially opened and one of the deputies shined his flashlight inside, where he observed a man with blankets, personal hygiene items and clothing, apparently living there. Deputies asked the man to come out so they could speak with him. He said he did not have any ID, but when a deputy patted him down for a weapons check he felt a wallet in the man’s front pants pocket. “Since that is where most people keep their identification,” the reporting deputy noted, he removed the wallet to look for an ID. The deputy found an ID card and a small baggie with a “crystalline substance consistent with methamphetamine” in the wallet. Arresting the man, deputies found a glass pipe with residue in the man’s jacket pocket. Deputies found a white powdery substance “consistent with cocaine” in a folded single dollar bill inside the storage compartment. A search of the name on the ID did not provide a match, which made deputies suspicious since the ID was issued by the U.S. Department of Justice. After providing multiple names and different dates of birth, the man ultimately provided a name that made a match and deputies discovered that there was a warrant for his arrest. A Sheriff’s sergeant noticed the word “security” was misspelled on the ID the man had, and with other irregularities on the ID, deputies came to suspect that it was a fake in violation of the law against using false documents to conceal a person’s citizenship or resident alien status. The man was transported to Santa Barbara County Jail and charged with using false citizenship, possession of narcotics paraphernalia, forging an official seal, and three counts of possession of a controlled substance.

hair needs attention. Also a best friend should be willing to tell me a lie when one is essential, an everything-will-be-alright type of statement to help me get through the heart attacks, the cancer scares, the house repairs and the many vehicular accidents that seem to invade my life. A best friend forever should be willing to do what I want part of the time in exchange for me spending time doing her favorite thing. She should be a good listener, a willing companion and an able counselor. In addition, it certainly wouldn’t hurt if she were a talented chef, an amusing stand-up comic and an able chauffeu not to mention a doctor, lawyer and IRS consultant. If I could find someone like this, I might even be forced to re-evaluate the “cornyism” of calling this person a BFF. Melinda Wittwer first moved to Carpinteria in 1972 and taught mostly junior high students in Oxnard during her 25-year career. Now retired, she enjoys pottery, writing, books and travel.

SCHOOL NOTES

CUSD students visit Westmont College

CVN

The Carpinteria Unified School District After School Program Leadership Councils visited Westmont College on Feb. 6 to tour the campus. Students from Carpinteria had an opportunity to ask first-generation college students from Westmont’s Liberal Arts Ambassadors Program about their school experiences and goals.

Rare fruit

TURN UP THE HEAT NIKKI DAILEY We live in a day and age of the fantastical! When I sit and think of how excited Renaissance man Michelangelo and the masterful Thomas Edison would feel to experience all of the ingenuity we experience daily, it makes me smile. In the animal-breeding world when you cross a tiger and a lion you get the mysteriously beautiful liger. In the food world when you cross a plum and an apricot you get a deliciously purple orange pluot. Only agriculturalists can know the mystery of how these hybrids are specifically cultured through cross-pollination, but the fruits of their labor are 100 percent worth devouring. Yet, the beautiful climate and soil of California also allow rare and exotic fruit to thrive naturally without any extra help. This spring, when you go to the farmer’s market you may come across a few curious looking fruits and vegetables. While some fruits are a work of nature, others are cultivated when the pollen from the flower of one plant is transferred

to the stigma of another. Unlike GMOs (genetically modified organisms), these gorgeous hybrids have never been altered in a lab—though some are so amazing to look at you’d think it was a Dr. Suess drawing brought to life. In my travels, I had the good luck to taste a Tayberry as well as some Tayberry jam that had just been canned. This tart berry is a cross between a blackberry and a raspberry and is perfect for pie making and jamming with a high pectin level. Then you have the Rangpur, a cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon, which I love to use in both curry and stirfry dishes when in season. Last year I catered a beautiful ranchstyle wedding at Goleta’s Goodland Organics farm. I was lucky enough to try some of their exotic and naturally-grown harvest and tasted both a cherimoya as well as a finger lime. Never in my life had I tasted such an exotic combination of flavors, which had me immediately creating new recipes in my head for such cool ingredients. The finger lime, aka the caviar lime, was by far my favorite and I loved hearing how this native to Australia could find a footing in our soil. While this fruit is not a hybrid and grows wildly in Australia’s subtropical weather zones, once you cut into it and see the acidic pearls hidden inside you’ll be amazed. So get out of your rut and head to our local markets to try out some amazing new produce that will bring a new zing to your favorite recipes.

Let your love shine Photos by Lea boyd

Little ones and their grownups converged on the Lou Grant Parent-Child Workshop campus last Saturday for a sunshiny morning of crafting with an emphasis on glitter. The annual event, hosted by the local preschool, always produces plenty of laughter along with Valentines to give on the day of love.

Coastal View News at the crossroads of cultures

Last October, Coastal View News traveled with Joe and Lucy Overgaag to Central Asia were they posed in front of the Ulugh Beg Madrasa in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. Their expedition started in Yerevan, Armenia where they boarded the Golden Eagle Trans Siberian Express. Their journey took them from Armenia to Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and ended in Kazakhstan. They visited many archeological and historical sites and learned about the historic civilizations and cultures of each country, as well as many new industrial developments. They found the people to be very hospitable, warm and friendly and curious about the USA.
