After a year of inactivity, Warrior track and field athletes took to the track for the first time in a dual meet against Santa Barbara High School. Vincent Rinaldi won the 100-meter dash coming in at 11.05 – the second fastest time ever in Carpinteria High School history, and a testament to the Warrior athletes’ determination despite a shortened season and a challenging year.

School district moves to return to almost fully in-person learning in coming weeks

On Wednesday, March 23, Superintendent Diana Rigby notified parents that the District has scheduled a special board meeting on Tuesday, March 30, to vote on returning elementary students full time, five days per week in-person starting on Monday, April 5, and middle school and high school students four days per week in person starting on Monday, April 12. Districtwide, schools are still set to begin partial in-person instruction on Monday, March 29, but these new proposals, if approved by the board, would mean that an almost complete return to in-person learning is soon to follow. Rigby referenced the new guidance by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for K-12 schools, which states that “maintaining a minimum of KARLSSON 3-feet distancing between student chairs is strongly recommended.” It also states that teacher and staff desks should remain at least 6 feet away from student and other staff desks. This guidance “supersedes previous CDPH Covid-19 and Cal/OSHA school guidance” and is based on the latest evidence and data about Covid-19 transmission and the effectiveness of disease control and mitigation strategies, Rigby said. Based on these new CDPH guidelines, and should the plan be approved, CUSD will implement the minimum of 3 feet of distance between student desks and return all elementary students five days per week starting April 5, 2021, and all CMS/CHS students four days per week starting April 12, 2021. Rigby also sent out more logistic information to parents about daily and weekly schedules for elementary, middle and high school students in her announcement. Canalino principal Jamie Persoon noted that while the change is a welcome development for many families, safety precautions remain of the utmost importance. “We continue to follow every protocol including cleaning and disinfecting, maintaining classroom cohorts, temperature checks, individualized recess equipment and supplies, boxes and chairs, hand sanitizer everywhere, assigned restrooms dependent upon classroom wing, 10 days (of) quarantine for close contacts or for any symptom on the SBC-PHD list,” Persoon stated. “We will all continue to wear masks, of course. We will not be gathering in the cafeteria for lunches; they will continue to be delivered to the carts outside the classrooms. Teachers will continue to make great efforts to teach outdoors as much as possible. There will be no large gatherings, such as assemblies.”

City preps for more road rehab

With funds from Measure X, the city of Carpinteria is moving forward with another project to repair and maintain local roadways. The 2021 Pavement Maintenance Project will take place this summer and will involve crack treatment, asphalt concrete pavement replacements and the application of microsurfacing. The project will target portions of Begonia Drive, Canalino Drive, Chaney Avenue, Concha Loma Drive, La Mesa Plaza, Palm Avenue, Santa Rosa Lane, 6th Street and Willow Place. Based on the city’s pavement management system, these streets are now on the lower end of the fair condition rating and are anticipated to decline into the poor condition rating in the next year without pavement maintenance treatment. On March 22, City Council approved the advertisement of bids for the $685,000 pavement project. Funding will come from the Measure X sales tax, which voters approved in 2018.

Arts Center bids farewell to Paige Van Tuyl

After serving as the executive director for the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center over the past year and a half, Paige Van Tuyl will embark on her next adventure by moving to Florida in May to be closer to family. Board Chair Alan Koch shares, “Paige’s passion for the arts, education and the community were an asset to the Arts Center. We thank her for leading our nonprofit with her incredible positive energy and wish her all the best in the future!” The Board will immediately start a search and the executive director job will be out next week on major online posting sites.

Carpinteria Middle School staff blossoms back to school

Carpinteria Middle School staff returned to campus for the first time on Wednesday, March 17, and were met with a donation of 600 Gerbera daisies from Mobi’s in Carpinteria. “We are so fortunate for Mobi’s owners Winfred and Rene van Wingerden and operations manager Cagney Miller for such a generous gift for the CMS staff!” said Regina Ruiz, a member of Parents for Carpinteria Middle School in a Facebook post thanking Mobi’s.

Kids, a career and a pandemic, oh my! CVN

COFFEE, CAREER AND KIDDOS T E R E S A A LVA R E Z One or both of my boys are screaming in the living room, my husband is frantically trying to get dinner ready and I’m doing my best to stay present during the fifth meeting of the day happening on Zoom. This scenario has become all too common in our household, as I’m sure it has in many other family homes across the world. It’s challenging and exhausting! Hi! I’m Teresa, and I’m new around here, sort of. You may have seen my face pop up in an article here and there related to the work I do at the Carpinteria Children’s Project. I want to let you know that you are not alone. As mothers and fathers, we feel the pressure to feed our children healthy meals, teach them to be emotionally intelligent and now help them survive a pandemic. It sometimes feels like it’s too much. There are days when I feel like I am rocking it at work, and I feel so proud of myself, but then I go and pick up my child who has been in daycare all day and wonder if what I’m doing is the right thing. Guilt starts creeping in. I constantly go back and forth between wanting to be a career woman and a great mom and a great wife, but also a wonderful friend and daughter, and thinking about all of it is anxiety-provoking. I’m slowly learning to be gentler with myself, have boundaries, and to say no to things. This is because, if there’s one thing I have learned, we cannot take care of others if we do not take care of ourselves. Of course, self-care is not always possible – I’ll talk about that topic another day – but it’s essential to do what we can for ourselves. For me, it’s been really helpful to speak to other moms going through the same kinds of things and experiencing a similar pressure to do it all. I’m also eternally thankful for childcare providers; the Early Childhood Education professionals that take care of

my children are simply excellent. I’m also grateful for the family we have nearby and the grandparents that can help. All of this is to say, we are in this together! If you’re feeling overwhelmed, please reach out to us at the Carpinteria Children’s Project for support. Our Family Resource Center staff is connected to wonderful partners like CALM and FSA. Perhaps you want to interact with other parents. In this case, we invite you to one of our parenting classes, and no, we don’t teach you how to be a parent because only you know what works best for your children and your family, but we do offer helpful tips. I look forward to sharing more in the upcoming months. You’ll learn a little more about me and my journey through mommyhood and the hopes I have for connecting families to resources that will benefit them and help make our community stronger. I hope that I’ll be able to be candid and, in doing so, create connections with you. We’re stronger together! Teresa Alvarez is the interim executive director of the Carpinteria Children’s Project. She has over a decade of experience in the nonprofit field and a passion for helping children and families. Teresa was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and moved to the U.S. with her parents at age two.

Public vote needed on Surfliner Inn

I appreciate Alan and Carol Koch for their letter in last week’s Coastal View News. It relates to the Feb. 22 City Council meeting about the Surfliner Inn project proposal. Somehow, the citizens’ request for a vote fell on deaf ears. Instead of addressing the central concern of the public, the process was rerouted by a legal eagle somehow aligned with the interest of further developing the project. I have no issue with private owners developing their own land, but I do have a problem with city council members who fail to do their due diligence on behalf of the entire community. When a lawyer is allowed an inordinate amount of time to shut down and redirect his legal process, we are not inspired to trust the city council or the private developers to consider any interests other than their own personal profits or political positioning. It is even more disturbing when it appears the city council members lean in favor of allowing four families to develop their commercial project on public lands and granting them a special 99-year lease. Denying us our voice is not an acceptable response to our request for a citywide election. How will the council address this specific grievance from its citizens? We still request a vote by the citizens of Carpinteria, a simple yes or no vote on whether a private developer(s) can be granted a 99-year lease to develop a commercial venture on lands designated for community use. We are not requesting a special election, but a vote can occur during the next voting cycle without additional cost to the city. When can we expect a response?

Cannabis odor not under control

On behalf of the residents of Linden Meadow in Carpinteria, a community of 40 homes immediately adjacent to the greenhouses located at 4801 Foothill Road and 1495 Sterling Road. For the last few years, we have been regularly subjected to the heavy, skunky odors of cannabis growing in the greenhouses surrounding our area. The smell can be overwhelming – day or night. We often cannot open our windows because of the odor, and frankly, even closing the windows does not help on some odoriferous occasions. This is a public nuisance that severely impacts our neighborhood as well as other surrounding areas. We strongly request that all relevant agencies do everything possible to ameliorate this situation. We are also concerned about the health effects of the Byers odor amelioration system currently in use. It has certainly not eliminated the problem, as we still smell the odor. Some of our residents suffer allergic reactions or migraine headaches due to the vapors produced by the Byers system. Elected representatives and regulatory agencies should endeavor to protect the health and safety of all our citizens. We object to increased cannabis production, especially as it is taking place literally a few hundred feet from our homes, unless a proven effective odor elimination system is installed and in use in all cannabis farms in the Carpinteria area. It makes no sense to allow additional cannabis production in our area until an effective odor containment system is in place in all existing and future greenhouses. To reiterate, the residents of Linden Meadow are strongly opposed to more cannabis production here or in the Carpinteria valley until the growers put effective odor containment systems in place. Please keep our beautiful little city of Carpinteria a healthy, pleasant and odor-free place to live.

Council explores safe parking to sleep in cars in Carpinteria

The council voted during its March 22 meeting to direct its staff to look at possible locations for a Safe Parking Program – a program that provides people living out of their cars safe places to sleep at night – in Carpinteria. New Beginnings presented at the council’s March 22 meeting about its countywide Safe Parking Program. Kristine Schwarz, executive director at New Beginnings, explained that the program is seeking to expand to Carpinteria. “Safe parking is, foremost and most importantly, an overnight shelter for families and individuals who live in their vehicles. It is not an encampment. It is not an alternative lifestyle program. It is a place for people who are forced to live in their vehicles, for them to have somewhere to go,” Schwarz said. She added that it is also a “rapid rehousing program,” meaning the program also works to help people staying in the overnight parking spaces “transition back into housing.” “One of the issues that people have, and one of the concerns that they have, is that if we use parking lots for shelter at night, it’s going to bring people to the community who are homeless, it’s going to cause these areas to be unsafe. We have found, overwhelmingly through the years, that actually having a safe place that is monitored, and protected, and taken care of, is actually a deterrent for anyone who is going to prey upon somebody who is vulnerable,” she said. The program began in Santa Barbara in 2003, and primarily repurposes parking lots already in place, Schwarz said.

“Safe parking is, foremost and most importantly, an overnight shelter for families and individuals who live in their vehicles. It is not an encampment. It is not an alternative lifestyle program. It is a place for people who are forced to live in their vehicles, for them to have somewhere to go.”

––Kristine Schwarz, Safe Parking Program

Currently, the program has 26 lots – 156 spaces – across the county. Generally, the lots are open for entering after 7 p.m. and participants in the program must leave by 7 a.m. All people staying in the lots must have valid driver’s licenses, registration and insurance. The program operates on a first come, first serve basis. Two workers monitor the lots. Carpinteria resident Phoenix Hawking spoke in support of the program, sharing a story of how when she was a child, she, her parents and her siblings slept in their car. “I’m 72 years old now, but when I was a kid, there were seven of us, sleeping in a car. We weren’t bums, we weren’t criminals, my mother and father both worked, but nobody wanted to rent to somebody with five kids,” Hawking said. “There was also no help back then.

Service agreements

The council approved two new service contracts at its March 22 meeting: the first with LIN Consulting for the Carpinteria and Palm avenues intersection improvements project, and the second with Pacific Civil Solutions for pedestrian bridge inspection services. The contract with LIN Consulting will cost the city $69,436, while the contract with Pacific Civil Solutions will cost the city $88,695. The proposed improvements for the Carpinteria and Palm avenues intersection include a new traffic signal system as well as curb ramp upgrades. Construction will take place between November and December of 2021. The pedestrian bridge inspection program, part of the 2021 annual work plan, will assess several bridges across Carpinteria for their safety and accessibility.

Foodbank distributed half a million pounds of food in Carpinteria in 2020

The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County has met and exceeded the usual need for food assistance countywide since the Covid-19 crisis began in early March 2020, plunging residents of Santa Barbara County into unprecedented need. In Carpinteria, that food need, from March 9, 2020 to March 8, 2021, weighed in at 514,200 pounds of food distributed, including 311,100 pounds of fresh produce. In that same time frame the year before, the Foodbank distributed just under 230,000 pounds of food, including 106,200 pounds of fresh produce. Countywide, those year-over-year numbers are even more striking. Nearly 20 million pounds of food were distributed between March 9, 2020 and March 8, 2021, including 8,314,000 pounds of fresh vegetables and fruits. The year before, the total pounds of food distributed was 9,709,000 with 4,087,000 pounds of fresh vegetables and fruits. “I couldn’t be more proud of the Foodbank team and organizations across Santa Barbara County for working together to implement our Disaster Feeding Plan so swiftly and gracefully when the Covid crisis struck our area,” said Foodbank CEO Erik Talkin. “We put our heads together, using lessons learned from the Thomas disasters, and mounted a creative, strategic response based on strong relationships and providing food at or near where people live. Our Covid response has endured and evolved over the course of a highly volatile year, proving how scalable and adaptable the Plan is,” Talkin continued. Within weeks of the first infections, shut downs and layoffs last spring, the Foodbank established the Safe Food Access for Everyone (SAFE) Food Net, working with county- and city-government disaster response agencies, nonprofit organizations and the education, healthcare and business sectors. The Foodbank established 50+ certified SAFE Food Net food distribution locations in neighborhoods throughout the county so residents could find food safely near their homes. More than 20 of the locations offered no-contact drive-through service for enhanced safety. A home delivery program was launched that provided the 1,500 low-income seniors served by the Brown Bag program with healthy groceries and fresh produce food at their doors. The Foodbank also enrolled more than 3,000 additional seniors in the Brown Bag program, providing triple the usual low-income seniors in the county with home deliveries. Households experiencing severe medical circumstances were provided with home deliveries by request. In total there were 60,000 home deliveries since March 9, 2020.

Capacity-building

As lockdowns and mandatory stay-athome orders led to precipitous job and income losses and economic collapse, the need for food assistance doubled countywide. In order to meet the need, the Foodbank procured additional physical capacity by acquiring additional warehouses in Santa Maria and Goleta to hold inventory and provide space for safely distanced volunteer efforts. Large, refrigerated trailers were added at each of the Foodbank regular warehouses to expand cold storage. New trucks were purchased to transport food between north and south county, deliver food to more food distribution sites and to expand cold food storage. The Foodbank also enlisted invaluable additional human resources increasing its total paid staff by 15%, recruiting thousands of new community volunteers

New Initiatives

At the peak of the crisis, when businesses closed suddenly, the Foodbank partnered with Santa Barbara restaurants The Lark and Loquita for the Chef’s Kitchen program, through which they provided more than 10,000 nutrient-dense, gourmet meals to seniors and households in need throughout the county. The program helped valued local businesses keep their staff employed. Families with children in school represented a segment of the community facing a unique need, as parents lost jobs and children could not attend school. In collaboration with districts countywide, the Foodbank provided boxes of healthy groceries and fresh produce to kids’ families at the same times and locations where families picked up school lunches. To serve families experiencing the highest need, the Foodbank is collaborating with schools and other community organizations to broaden the reach of their award-winning Healthy School Pantry (HSP) program. Adding to a base of six existing programs, the Foodbank has identified 10 more high-need neighborhoods countywide where new HSPs will be launched in the coming year. At a Healthy School Pantry, families receive nutritious groceries and fresh produce, and have access to health and nutrition education, recipes and other wrap-around services and resources from additional providers. “One of the most painful ironies of the pandemic has been that essential workers who provide healthy local produce for others of us have been least equipped to provide their own families with that same nutritious food,” said Judith Smith-Meyer, the Foodbank’s marketing communications manager. Launched in July, the Food Access for Farmworkers outreach program provides food in locations where high concentrations of farmworkers live. “The reason this works better than providing food at work sites is that farmworkers often carpool to work or are transported there in vans,” Smith-Meyer said. “Shared vehicles would not have enough space to hold the food they receive. Also, many don’t have personal transportation, so

they and their children can walk to food distribution sites and carry the food home easily.” The Foodbank’s Food Access for Farmworkers program has served more than 4,800 unduplicated individuals, providing over 200,000 pounds of food at five sites in North County. The Foodbank aims to serve 500 families per month and expand locations for this program to other areas of the county. In collaboration with CenCal Health, the Foodbank also launched a Food Prescription (Food Rx) program to deliver boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables to families with children with obesity. The program is currently serving 60 families, with a goal to reach 70 families this year.

Nutrition Education

In a time when health is a central concern, the Foodbank has pivoted to make

nutrition education safely available to as many community members as possible. Food as Medicine, a series of free public presentations on eating for optimal health, moved from live events and periodic podcasts to interactive webinars covering topics including the power of cruciferous vegetables, food and mood, digestion and diet trends. The Foodbank’s nutrition education programs for children – such as Kids Farmers Market and Food Literacy in Preschool – which normally take place during or after the school day, evolved into a hybrid model incorporating both activities and information sent home with food boxes for students’ families, along with online education modules and videos for students.

The Bob Guthrie Memorial Pipe & Drum Corps is one of this year’s many featured talents.

Rotary Club prepares for virtual Talent Showcase The Rotary Club of Carpinteria is preparing to hold its annual Talent Showcase, only this year it will be virtual. The April 17 talent show will be fully virtual this spring, with headliners including local students, folk artists, comedians, singer-songwriters, bagpipers and more. Acts will perform at popular spots around town, and their performances will be pre-recorded and compiled to create the virtual show. Past performers have gone on to record albums, tour the country performing and even appear as a contestant on NBC’s “The Voice.” With many of the performers starting in the show while still in elementary school, the annual Talent Showcase has followed the journeys of many talented youth performers through the years as they have risen to professional success in the music industry. For over a decade, 100% of the over $100,000 raised from the Talent Showcase has been returned to the Carpinteria community for the benefit of local students. Funds raised through this popular annual event provide continued support and expanded access to music education in elementary through high school. Tom Pavia, CUSD’s Instrumental Music Director, has been working with grades three through eight for Canalino, Aliso, Family, Summerland and Carpinteria Middle School, together with Elise Unruh, instructor for band and string instruments. Although it has been a difficult year to have both Zoom and hybrid classes, these two dedicated teachers have made the music program work. Pavia said that the classes would not be possible if the music program had not received instruments from the Rotary Club of Carpinteria, along with music stands and sheet music. All Talent Showcase donations will

Painting gets underway led by Muralism at Ash Avenue Boathouse

Kimba Madsen, Hilary McCurry and Maggie Langhorn paint together at Sunday’s event. Volunteers were assigned shifts and worked in small groups over the weekend to maintain safety and distance.

PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

Approximately 70 volunteers of all ages rolled up their sleeves, grabbed their brushes and got to painting this weekend as the nonprofit Muralism began work on the Ash Avenue Boathouse mural honoring late Carpinteria artist Ray Cole. Muralism is dedicated to connecting people with special needs to the community through art. Before the volunteers began painting, paid artists with special needs covered the sidewalks and pressure washed and primed the walls, and then the Muralism team created a paint-bynumbers guide in charcoal on the walls for the volunteers to follow. Muralism founder and executive director Ernie Merlán said the atmosphere over the weekend was peaceful and nostalgic, with many volunteers sharing their memories of Cole. Volunteers painted in groups of six to 10 at a time to allow for social distancing, and some even brought pieces of Cole’s artwork to share with one another during their shifts. The Boathouse mural is set to be complete by the end of April. To learn more about Muralism and get involved with future community paint days, contact ernie@muralism.org.

Muralism executive director Ernie Merlán, operations manager Sara Cohen, project manager Greg Perea and guest lead artist Kit Brown helped oversee the project.

Noah Wade paints a jellyfish while his sister Hannah is painting in the background. The mural features many native marine species and will include a legend so kids can learn about local wildlife.

Marlene Hazen fills in sections of kelp forest that make up the lower half of the marine-themed mural.

Muralism founder Ernie Merlán holds up one portion of the charcoal guide that the team transferred onto the walls of the Boathouse building. Once the paint-by-numbers guide is transferred, volunteers begin painting.

Larsen Cole, grandson of Ray Cole, makes his mark on the mural honoring his grandfather.

Saturday afternoon’s volunteers celebrate their work alongside Muralism staff members.

Home sales and unemployment up, TOT revenue down, retail remains steady Economic Forecast Project reports historic numbers for 2020

BY DEBRA HERRICK “Even though I run the economic forecast project, this is exactly the reason I don’t forecast. Everyone was wrong,” said Peter Rupert, director of the Economic Forecast Project at UCSB. “We didn’t know what it would be looking like a year ago.” Rupert was addressing a virtual crowd during the Carpinteria State of the City meeting hosted by the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce on Friday, March 19. The event was filmed at the LinkedIn campus (formerly of Lynda.com) in Carpinteria. In economic terms, Rupert noted several historic numbers from 2020 – some indicators of positive growth and others of critical losses. From the data collected between March of 2019 and March of 2020, “some markets are just on fire,” said Rupert, while others are “still reeling.” Among the sectors having historic gains are the stock market and, specific to Santa Barbara County, real estate and cannabis. “Stock markets are setting records every day,” Rupert said. “Real estate is on fire. Housing sales have never been more busy.” The result: Santa Barbara County will have a $5 million budgetary surplus this year – $3.5 million from property taxes alone. In the South County, since the pandemic started, the average sale price has gone up 21%. However, the numbers in Carpinteria are strikingly higher – “through the roof (pun intended),” remarked Rupert. The median home sale price in Carpinteria is now 37% higher than it was this time last year. Cannabis sales have exceeded expectations in the past 12 months by $3.4 million. “That’s $3.4 million more than people thought was going to happen a year ago,” Rupert said. “People are stuck at home. What else are they going to do?” Retail has remained steady, despite an uptick in online sales (online sales now make up 14% of sales countywide), according to Rupert. “I think most people believe that we’ve gone completely online, but it’s only 14%. The pandemic has accelerated that increase, but retail is not dead,” Rupert said. Still, despite the good news for some sectors, many others are struggling. The labor market took a historic blow, reaching 15% unemployment countywide at its worst in late spring 2020. A year later, with reopenings expanding, Santa Barbara County unemployment is now at 7%. Before the pandemic, that figure was 3%. “Every time the government allows things to open up, we see an increase in employment,” Rupert noted. While property taxes are up, transient occupancy taxes (TOT) are down by $2.8 million. These taxes, also known as bed taxes, come mainly from hotels and have been hugely impacted by the ongoing restrictions to the event, leisure and hospitality sector. Rupert’s final moments were dedicated to an urgent warning to the community regarding the long-term economic impacts to children caused by the disruption to their schoolyear. “Education is a big deal,” said Rupert, “We really have to understand that children who have lost basically a year of schooling and especially children in some of the lower income levels, they have lost a year of schooling. We know as economists how much that affects long-term income. One concern that I

have is what will happen with income inequality going forward over the next several years if these kids are not in school? Their lifetime income goes down by something like 15%.” Rupert also noted that “children in richer areas have not suffered as much; they have hired teachers through pods, and so on.”

City updates

Carpinteria city manager Dave Durflinger discussed the city’s budget and other updates. Notably, Durflinger stated that by July of 2022 the city will be operating its own library and that by November of 2022 City Council elections will be by district – “to encourage more equity in representation.” In terms of the city’s budget, Durflinger stated that spending outsized revenue in the past 12 months. “In my 22 years at the city, this is only the third time we’ve had deficit fund spending,” he said. “We don’t do that lightly. Using the rainy-day fund was important to continue to deliver needed services to the community.” While property taxes have been “a good bit of news as it has continued to grow despite the pandemic,” Durflinger said, Carpinteria’s TOT taxes were down by $1.3 million this past year. Carpinteria Mayor Wade Nomura discussed how the city has responded programmatically to the pandemic, noting website updates, branded signs, the #CarpCares campaign, “Mask-up” chalk art and the LED signs at Hwy 101 off ramps. These measures have been implemented to raise community awareness and safety and also to present an “inviting force that we as Carpinterians have for our visitors.”

With expenses outsizing revenues in 2020, the city of Carpinteria dipped into reserve funds to ensure essential programs continued and to create a comprehensive emergency response to the pandemic.

Jenny Schatzle to give keynote at Women of Inspiration virtual luncheon

Girls Inc. of Carpinteria will host its annual Women of Inspiration luncheon virtually on Monday, April 12. Local entrepreneur Jenny Schatzle, a wellness and lifestyle guide and creator of Bond Fitness (formerly the Jenny Schatzle Program) will serve as the event’s keynote speaker. Schatzle’s motivation to change the conversation on body image, self-worth and movement stemmed from her own battle with insecurity growing up. According to Schatzle, she spent most of her life displeased with the way she looked, until she realized the outside validation she was constantly seeking would never make her happy, so she set out to accept and love herself first. From her fitness facility in Santa Barbara to helping people across the globe, Schatzle has crafted a movement that challenges the way people see themselves. “A key part of our mission at Girls Inc. is to provide girls with opportunities to build their confidence and develop leadership skills in order to be effective leaders in their communities – and we know that confidence to lead rests on the foundation of their wellbeing,” said Girls Inc. of Carpinteria Executive Director Jamie Collins. “Jenny’s holistic approach to health and her passion for encouraging a positive self-image make her a role model for all girls. We’re proud to have Jenny share her inspirational story at this year’s luncheon, and we look forward to recognizing a group of powerful women and girls who embody our mission.” Schatzle has delivered two TEDx talks and has been featured in dozens of media outlets worldwide.

The Women of Inspiration luncheon will take place virtually on Monday, April 12 from noon to 1:30 p.m. via Zoom.

A rare event was witnessed: A mom was observed nursing two pups. Twins are extremely rare, but what Sealwatchers have dubbed “Supermoms” – seals who accept another’s pup – have been observed a couple of times over the years. Unless the actual birth is witnessed, only DNA analysis could confirm a twin birth. A noted marine mammal expert was consulted and confirmed it was more likely a “Supermom.” This sometimes occurs when the second pup’s mom has died or abandoned the pup. Elephant seals, unlike harbor seals, are known to nurse other’s pups much more frequently.

Visitors

Sealwatchers report unusual numbers of visitors, and unlike locals, many are not aware of the harbor seals or of the beach closure ordinance. It’s interesting, if somewhat disheartening, to see people walk past the large stop and regulatory signs without noticing them. It’s often clear who knows better and who simply did not notice. When Sealwatchers talk with these people the great majority are grateful and happy to hear about the opportunity see the seals from above.

ANITA GARCIA Anita Garcia was nominated by Carol Tokar, Lisa Patsch and several others. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Anita has been grocery shopping and picking up medications for elders. She volunteers her time knowing “many don’t have family or can’t afford to order online and if (she) can do it, why not?” Anita has also been operating a community pantry in Santa Barbara (along with Ronnie Shahbazian) that is stocked with food, clothes, toiletries and more. While we were chatting, after I took her portrait, she noticed a disheveled man pass by and offered him a mask, blanket and food. Her car was filled with donations she had just received, and she was eager to share them.  “Anita is a community treasure!” said Lisa Patsch in nominating her.

RONNIE SHAHBAZIAN Ronnie Shahbazian was nominated by Anita Garcia. Ronnie is a Vietnam veteran and a former driver of the Seaside Shuttle. He has been making sandwiches and burritos to feed the hungry for years. Ronnie has recently battled cancer and Anita has teamed up with him to feed those in need to encourage him to focus on his health and safety. Throughout the pandemic, they have worked together to make food and other provisions unconditionally available. Ronnie had a cart outside his home for people to grab whatever they needed. The pair began to collect food from food banks, Catholic Charities and various individuals while expanding their offerings to more and more people. Their operation became known as “The Pantry” and was forced to move three times before the most recent location was shut down due to the use of city property. Ronnie and Anita have been serving 60 to 80 people a day and continue to find creative ways to provide for anyone in need. Ronnie wanted to note that there have been so many people involved and that Stefan Landfried has been a vital member of The Pantry’s operations. “Ronnie is truly a hero,” said Garcia in her nomination.

Spotlight on Carpinteria photographers

In this weekly series, local photographers share their recent work and inspiration with CVN readers.

Photography plus personality PHOTOS BY AMIE RODRIGUEZ

Ever since I was a young child, I was drawn to the arts. The wonder and anticipation of a blank canvas or a ball of clay was so inspiring to me. I was raised in La Jolla, California and I was a beach girl. I loved the luminescent colors of the waves crashing on the sand, and the magical ever-changing sunsets. My focus is on seeing things in a new way. I love to take pictures of the wonderful beauty around Carpinteria and Santa Barbara. I capture moments, and then make them my own. I primarily use my iPhone for most of my photography and then I add my “creative imperfections” using a variety of apps and techniques to give each piece of art its own personality.

Open for Business BY ODESSA STORK

The heart of Carpinteria is in its local and family-owned businesses, but it’s also in the strength and giving spirit of the community. One year into the Covid-19 pandemic, local businesses are still in need of community support. Each week, CVN will highlight a selection of local restaurants, mom and pop shops and more.

Owner Brian Kollenborn is an expert on all-things air plants and is happy to help customers find the plant that’s right for them.

Airplant Alchemy

Air plants, also known by their scientific name, Tillandsia, don’t require any soil to thrive. These unique, versatile plants are most often spotted in trendy terrariums or suspended from the air in hanging fixtures, but Airplant Alchemy owner Brian Kollenborn says they can do quite well in many different setups with the right care. At Airplant Alchemy, plant lovers can shop a wide selection of vibrant air plants that make a beautiful addition to any space. Airplant Alchemy is committed to providing customers with world class, high-quality air plants.

Also woven into to the store’s displays are smaller items and goods that can quickly refresh a room, or make perfect gifts for friends and family. In fall of 2020, this local favorite left its Santa Claus Lane location and moved to Summerland. Shop in-store at 2346 Lillie Ave. and call (805) 684-0300 for more information.

Engagement is key at The Worker Bee

CVN

TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P Since 2012, Rick Mancilla and his son, Rick, have been filling cups of coffee and sparking conversation at The Worker Bee Café on Linden Avenue. Picture a guy or a girl entering the restaurant and having a bad morning. They sit down, Mancilla gives them a cup of coffee and starts to chat. “Most of the people would laugh because by the time they’re done, they’d give me a big hug and say, I’ll come back to see you again. Because, you know what? That’s all that people really need,” said Mancilla. “Everyone who knows me knows I love to talk.” Listening is another biggie for Mancilla, and when it comes to what advice he’d tell his younger self, it’s about keeping your ear to the ground. “Listening to the market is probably the most valuable thing,” he said. “People who are in business should experience a small town – just think of the way word gets around fast. I always tell people that just because you build it does not mean they will come. You’ve got to listen to the market.” This also rolls into his secret to success. “For me, the main word that I always use is, ‘engage.’ If you are not engaged, you ain’t gonna make it,” Mancilla said. “I’m telling you; it doesn’t matter what business you have. If you’re not engaged, then you don’t understand the market. You don’t understand the people you’re with and you don’t understand your employees and therefore everything else just crumbles around you.” With a background in corporate healthcare, Mancilla said it was his son who got him started in the restaurant business. Before he was married, the father and son met in Milan for a mountain biking tour through Austria, France and Barcelona, eventually meeting up in Sweden where Mancilla said he was working at the time. “I just remember hanging out with him, eating, and he said, ‘It would be cool to have a restaurant someday.’ And guess what? Ten years ago, it happened,” Mancilla said. Mancilla breaks down his trade secrets into three categories, which he uses to gage new hires. The first is connection. For example, when you shake another’s hand, depending on their grip, you can tell if there’s true or false sincerity. “You can tell when someone is not being genuine,” he said. The second is eye contact. “You have to be able to look somebody in their eyes

Rick Mancilla and his son, Rick, have run The Worker Bee Café on Linden Avenue for almost a decade. because to me, that’s a portal into your soul,” Mancilla said. “It may sound kind of weird, but you learn to understand a person by how they look at you.” The third thing is conversation. “It is so critically important to me that you talk because I love to talk and enjoy speaking to other people,” Mancilla said. “I need those three things because that’s what makes us a family restaurant.” Mancilla also noted that in business, “change is constant and growth is optional.” Mancilla and his son have learned to adapt to challenges when they arise and have figured out ways to make the business stronger and more successful despite these challenges. Having that as a foundation, The Worker Bee continues to thrive, and so does Mancilla and his crew. “People go, ‘You really dig what you do.’ And I say, ‘Damn straight! That’s why I’m doing what I’m doing.’ I love what I do.” The Worker Bee Café is located at 973 Linden Ave. Megan Waldrep is a columnist and freelance writer, currently living on a 34-foot sailboat.

Meatloaf Dog Cake

1 lb ground beef ½ cup cooked white rice 2 eggs 1 cup shredded carrot ½ cup green peas

Filling

1 cup peanut butter (no sugar added)

Frosting

In a small bowl or Kitchen Aid electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix Greek yogurt and peanut butter until smooth and fully incorporated. Set aside.

Frosting

1 ½ cup plain Greek yogurt 1 cup peanut butter (no sugar added) ½ cup peanut butter (no sugar added) for garnish Cooked bacon bits, optional for garnish

Ziploc bag with the corner cut out. Add cooked bacon bits for extra texture and color. I’ve found this recipe safe for my dog, but consult your veterinarian if your dog has any dietary questions.

Assembly

Line a 6-inch pan with plastic wrap. Place one meatloaf cake in the pan. Using an offset spatula, spread the peanut butter filling evenly over the top. Press the other meatloaf cake on top of the peanut butter. Chill cake in the refrigerator for an hour or so (making it easier to frost).

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, cooked rice, shredded carrots, peas and eggs until fully incorporated. Spray two 6-inch cake pans with cooking spray and line with parchment paper. Divide the batter between two pans and press into two flat circles. Bake meat loaf cakes for approximately 20 minutes, until lightly brown and cooked through. Cool, run a knife around the cake and pop out of the pan.

Invert meatloaf cake onto a cake board or plate. Frost the cake with an offset spatula using the prepared frosting until smooth.

This month, I’m giving a very special shout out to our puppy, Louie, in celebration of his first birthday. My boyfriend, Elliot, and I decided to get a dachshund/ yorkie/pit last year. He looks like a mini Scooby Doo! Anyone who owns a dog can tell you that a dog’s unconditional love is one of life’s greatest gifts. Louie did not disappoint! I cannot begin to express how much better our lives have been since Louie, aka Scooby Lou, aka Louie Long Dog, aka Lou Dog, came into our lives. We are fortunate that he has been a really happy and well-behaved puppy! And he is fortunate to live in a beautiful, dog-friendly city. Our furry friends are able to stroll the beaches, hike the mountains and visit El Carro Dog Park (thanks to C-Dog group) all in the same day. I wanted to surprise him with the best dog-friendly birthday cake ever. In doing some research, I found that many pet owners use processed grains, peanut butter and pumpkin as a base for their cake, but my recipe is a little different and much more decadent, in doggy terms. I decided my dog is getting a meatloaf cake! This recipe is for a two-layer cake. Feel free to simplify the recipe by cutting it in half to make a single layer. This cake is

Farming is healing at Night Heron Farm

MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N Coastal View News readers may know Alena Steen for her columns, where she shares insights on gardening and sustainability and tells of her work as coordinator of the Carpinteria Garden Park. In addition to that work, Steen and her husband Danny Shimoda are the founders of Night Heron Farm, a non-certified organic farm that grows an acre of cut flowers and medicinal herbs. Night Heron Farm offers 30 types of medicinal plants and 220 varieties of flowers – an incredible amount of diversity for such a small space. Their flowers are grown using less water than commercial agriculture and are completely non-toxic. They also utilize no-till agriculture, which is intended to be a more regenerative approach to farming to improve soil biology. “We have a commitment not just to growing things for the human world, but for improving soil biology and diversifying species for pollinators,” Steen said. “We are trying to create an abundant world for all creatures.” Night Heron Farm also offers herbal teas and tinctures, both of which are made from ingredients that Steen and her husband grow, dry and process themselves. They make two kinds of tinctures – one is alcohol based and the other, called oxymel, is apple cider vinegar and honey based. In the growing season, Night Heron Farm runs a community-supported flower program in which folks pay upfront for a subscription to their flower garden for 10 weeks, and then pick up a big farmfresh bouquet every week. Steen and Shimoda met five years ago when they were both doing an internship in Southern Oregon on a medicinal herb farm. A year later, they moved down to Carpinteria to be closer to Shimoda’s family. Rather than setting out to start their own medicinal herb farm, the farmers grew into their business organically. When they first started growing, they were just making things for their friends before selling to strangers over time. “It was a slow progression from making stuff and sharing it with friends to deciding on a farm name to learning how to make labels,” Shimoda said. “Before we knew, we had a small business.” In the past year, they have focused on expanding their business and have doubled the size of production by renting the acre they currently farm on. They are the only workers at Night Heron Farm and they both have side jobs as well. However, neither of them would like to grow to a point where they would need a team of workers. “Regardless of business, we are committed to growing food and medicine for ourselves,” Shimoda said. “Our biggest motivation would be to keep growing with the plants.” The pair saw a need in the herbal

At Night Heron Farm, Alena Steen and Danny Shimoda tend to 220 varieties of flowers and 30 types of medicinal plants.

Items like this box of homegrown and handmade botanicals are made from ingredients in Shimoda and Steen’s organic garden. These herbal medicines and more are available online at nightheronfarm.org. community for access to more local and ethically-grown plant material, as there aren’t many people growing local plant medicine. “It is an amazing thing to share our plants with the community,” Shimoda said. “When the pandemic hit, it was a big affirmation that we wanted to expand so that we could eventually farm full time. It was so obvious how important

Read previously published “Made in Carpinteria” columns

it was to be growing food and medicine locally, especially on a small farm.” The team hopes to share with other people the experience of being connected with the land when they come to get flowers from the farm or use their plant medicine for the first time. “I appreciate the reality of plants – the pace at which change and seasons happen,” Steen said.

“Being able to use my body and be outdoors in all kinds of weather has made me super aware of my natural surroundings. I feel very connected to the birds and the insects we share a space with.” When Steen and Shimoda first began selling, they started at the Ojai Farmers Market, which allowed them to directly meet and interact with people in the local community. “Being able to consistently go to the market allows us to slowly make friendships that feel really important,” Shimoda said. “Having an ongoing affirmation each week is very driving.” Being at the market also allows them to connect with farmers of all experience levels, some of them having farmed in the area for 40 years. “We love sharing information and learning from and getting inspired by other farmers,” Shimoda said. “There’s so much to learn, and being a small farm and seeing people makes it more accessible to us.” Steen values the small agricultural world’s spirit of collaboration over competition. “Carpinteria has a long history of exporting flowers all over the world, but due to climate change more and more people are turning to local economies,” she said. “One of the things we learned from the pandemic is to take care of our local community. People really supported us. It’s so crazy to expand your business in a time of such uncertainty, but people really showed up for us. Things are always changing, and we are always learning ways to improve our farming systems. Last year was our first year growing in this space. This year, we are focusing on crop rotation and improving our growing methods. We are always learning by doing and there is always something new to learn.” Night Heron Farm sells their products at the Ojai Farmers Market, Heritage Goods and other local stores.

Water polo falls to Buena and Cabrillo, defeats Royal to wrap up season PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

The Warriors boys water polo team visited the Buena Bulldogs on Wednesday, March 17, for the second game of their two-week season. The Warriors and Bulldogs fought hard for a lead but kept each other at odds up until halftime, where the game stood tied at 3-3. In the third quarter, Buena scored three goals to put themselves in the lead 6-3 and ultimately went on to take the match 7-4. “Freshman Aiden Neuron had a great game with a solid goal early in the game and phenomenal defense throughout the entire game that netted the Warriors multiple steals,” said coach Sergio Castaneda.

The JV team also fell to Buena by a score of 9-7, a promising effort for their fresh roster with little experience. On Friday, March 19, the Warriors visited Cabrillo for their third game of the season. Both teams started off explosive, scoring goal for goal and maintaining a 1 point match throughout the entire game. However, the Conquistadors were able to sneak a goal and the Warriors were unable to match despite their best efforts, leading to a 9-8 loss for the Warriors. The young squad was not disheartened, as competing with a school a division above them with only three total days

This speaks to the potential of their roster which is only losing one senior this year, Castaneda said. Castaneda also noted that freshman Asher Smith had a phenomenal game, drawing multiple defenders to himself and still scoring four goals. Junior Zach Isaac also played a strong defensive game with multiple steals and great coverage of the opponents’ two-meter man. He also was almost able to save the game by earning the Warriors a 5-meter

penalty by getting a ball under on the goalie. The Warriors were not winless on the day, however, as the JV team walked away with a 13-3 victory over Cabrillo. Finally, on Saturday, March 20, the Warriors hosted the Royal Highlanders for the first and last home game of their short season. The Warriors powered through to win decisively, with strong offense and defense throughout the whole game. Senior Isaac Carillo scored his last goal and led the team to a 15-5 victory. Finishing with a 1-3 record, the Warriors will take this short season into summer training and continue to improve in hopes of winning CIF next year.

Girls soccer drops season opener to Santa Paula

The Warrior girls soccer team lost 4-1 in their season opener against the Santa Paula Cardinals on Tuesday, March 23. Coach Lucy Carleton said that the game was much closer than the score conveys, noting that Santa Paula is a seasoned team while the Warriors were prohibited from training and conditioning until very recently. Sophomore Ariana Lounsbury, the starting varsity keeper last year as a freshman until a bad concussion cut her season short, returned on Tuesday to make half a dozen saves, coming off her line fearlessly. Sophomore Ashley Verduzco scored the only goal, tying the game 1-1 early in the second half. However, Santa Paula was able to respond, and CHS gave up two more goals in the last 10 minutes of the game. The Warriors only have three returning varsity seniors, and they each performed outstandingly, Carleton said. Zahea Hamadi led the charge on offense, while Kenna Mayer and Clarissa Ramirez anchored the defense. The team also had seven freshmen make their debuts: Mia Alvarado, Mariana Arredondo, Samantha Cruz, Luna Galvan, Yuliza Garcia, Emma Miller and Isela Zamora. “Overall, I was very pleased with the team’s performance,” Carleton said. “It was pretty amazing how well they did despite having never played together.”

Warriors girls volleyball concludes abbreviated playing season

The Carpinteria girls volleyball team wrapped up their shortened playing season this spring with two matches against the Hueneme Vikings and the Santa Paula Cardinals. On Tuesday, March 16, the Warriors fell to the Hueneme Vikings in a four-set match with scores of 21-25, 25-21, 8-25 and 20-25. The Warriors were without one of their starting players, and all four of the team’s freshmen rose to the occasion and made contributions with points or digs. Camryn Siegel had a well-balanced day with six aces, six kills and 16 digs. Alex Zapata contributed two aces, 10 kills and 16 digs. Marlene Sanchez had another good defensive day, preventing 29 balls from hitting the ground with her excellent digging ability. On Thursday, March 18, the Warriors fell to Santa Paula by a score of 3-0, finishing off the season with a 2-3 overall record and a 1-2 league record. ROSANA SWING PHOTOS

CHS girls tennis travels to Santa Paula

The CHS girls varsity and junior varsity tennis teams travelled to Santa Paula on Wednesday, March 17, and came away with their second straight win, defeating Santa Paula by a score of 17-1 in the Citrus Coast League matchup. Zahra Porinsh went undefeated in singles without dropping a game, and Silke Leonard and Neida Garcia both recorded their first 3-0 sweeps. The doubles team of Natalia Perez and Cassandra Maya Prado swept their sets, as did the team of Maria Valeria Ojeda and Abbie Delwiche. Gabbie Smith and Fiona Casbarro went 2-1 in doubles. “There is a good overall bond with this team and we are excited to see their enthusiasm and their continued efforts,” said coach Charles Bryant. The team is now 2-0 overall and 2-0 in Citrus Coast League competition. They will return to competition following the school’s spring break holiday.

Warriors track and field competes in first dual meet against the Dons

After a year of inactivity, Warrior track and field returned to Carpinteria Memorial Stadium with a dual meet against Santa Barbara High School. “It was great to compete again on beautiful day for track and field. The athletes were excited and ready to perform after the long layoff,” said coach Van Latham. Although both teams were down on numbers, the meet was competitive for both the boys and girls. The Carpinteria boys escaped with a narrow 58 to 54 win over Santa Barbara, while the Santa Barbara girls turned the tables on the Warriors 59 to 33. Carpinteria’s Vincent Rinaldi won the 100 and 200 meter races. His time of 11.05 in the 100-meter event is the second fastest in school history. Tristan Cravens won both hurdle events with times of 19.64 and 49.24. Esai Vega set personal records to win both the shot put (38-8) and discus (125-8). Fatima Cervantes had the top performance for the girls, winning the high jump at 4-10. The race of the day saw Blaise Winston of Santa Barbara edge Mateo Handall of Carpinteria in the 400 meters. The two were neck and neck the entire lap, with Winston winning at 52.32 to Handall’s 52.50.
