A rescued paraglider was transported by helicopter to Viola Fields, where he was assessed by paramedics and released with minor injuries on Sunday.
Firefighters rescue paraglider in Viola Fields
On Sunday, April 18 at approximately 1:45 p.m., Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District firefighters responded to a report of a paraglider down. The reported incident location was below Divide Peak, in the mountains above Carpinteria. Cell phone GPS coordinates were utilized to determine a more exact location. Firefighter paramedics attempted to make access from below the site but were unable due to the steep terrain. Sheriff’s Department Search and Rescue teams responded topside but were also unable to make access by foot. Santa Barbara County Fire Copter 3 from Santa Ynez was subsequently dispatched to perform a hoist operation off the side of the mountain. This operation involved sending down a rescuer from the helicopter to retrieve the injured man. The man in his 60s had launched his glider and crashed due to unknown circumstances. He was transported by helicopter to Viola Fields in Carpinteria, where he was assessed by paramedics. His injuries were minor.

In a recent joint press release, the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce and Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce expressed recognition of the importance that Hispanic and minority-owned businesses have in the community. As they have shared Covid-19 information and resources with community business owners, they have identified a gap. While many Hispanic-owned businesses have already taken steps to apply for financial assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), there are still a number of smaller, local businesses that have not yet done so. While there is still time to apply, funding is quickly being distributed and may run out prior to the May 21 deadline. In 2012, the US Census Bureau surveyed Santa Barbara County business owners and self-employed persons and determined that 10,340 were considered minority owned, accounting for 26% of all those surveyed. The PPP loan can help small businesses who have struggled in the pandemic by keeping their workers on payroll. Additionally, businesses that borrow may be eligible for PPP loan forgiveness. This funding is only available until May 21. “With the deadline approaching quickly, it is absolutely essential for business owners to apply so that they may benefit from this opportunity,” stated the joint chambers’ statement. “The chambers advocate for the entire business community and have made resources available, in both English and Spanish, to ensure access to financial security amid Covid-19.” Visit SBSCchamber.com or SantaMaria.com for resources that support the Hispanic business community.

Autumn Brands nears transition in county permitting for existing 9 acres of cannabis cultivation BY DEBRA HERRICK Cannabis cultivators Autumn Brands and Ocean Hill Farms, located in Carpinteria’s agricultural overlay district, are nearing the final mark in transitioning from legal nonconforming operations to cannabis cultivators with Santa Barbara County Coastal Development permits under the cannabis ordinance. At Santa Barbara County’s April 7 meeting of the Planning Commission, a joint application from the two 3615 Foothill Road farms, both owned by the Brand Partnership, was reviewed in a public hearing regarding cannabis cultivation in seven existing greenhouses on a 24-acre parcel. At this time, six of the seven existing greenhouses are being used for cannabis cultivation. The new total footprint for cannabis cultivation would be 8.92 acres. While county staff recommended approval and the majority of commissioners did not express opposition at the hearing (despite some questions about odor abatement), on the advice of legal counsel, the deciding vote was postponed until April 28 to allow the public additional time to consider and comment on the complete application. In addition to cultivation, Autumn Brands and Ocean Hill also seek permits for cannabis processing in two existing buildings currently used for this, totaling 27,942 sq ft. Seventy-one parking spaces exist and would remain. Additionally, an unpermitted detention basin and bioswale (collectively, the stormwater facility) would be validated. During the construction of the stormwater facility, however, approximately 7,500 sq ft of vegetation was cleared. Analysis by county staff suggests that this area may have been native riparian vegetation surrounding Arroyo Paredon. In the proposed plan, 22,500 sq ft, including the bioswale, will be revegetated and restored to a riparian wetland.

Autumn Brands and Ocean Hill Farms are currently cultivating cannabis in six greenhouses at 3615 Foothill Road. Approval of a County Coastal Development permit under the cannabis ordinance would allow them to cultivate in all seven existing greenhouses, a footprint of 8.92 acres on a 24-acre parcel.
In their application, Autumn Brands and Ocean Hill submitted an odor abatement plan (OAP) certified by a Certified Industrial Hygienist that includes the use of a Byers Scientific and Manufacturing Waterless Vapor System for Odor Control HPII Series to neutralize odor generated by the cannabis activities. The Byers System will deliver vaporized odor neutralizer through a pipe that runs along the perimeter of each greenhouse used for cannabis cultivation and nursery. The OAP also includes the use of Hydro Crunch Carbon Charcoal Air Filters within the two processing buildings. Each processing building will use seven carbon filters. The next public hearing on Autumn Brands and Ocean Hill’s application will be on April 28 by the county’s Planning Commission.
Shelton elected president of CARP Growers
At its virtual annual meeting on April 13, CARP Growers elected Autumn Shelton, co-founder of Autumn Brands farm, as its fourth president and first female leader. CARP Growers is an association of 13 member farms cultivating cannabis in Carpinteria Valley. “We have so many great cannabis farms and farmers in CARP Growers that I feel incredibly honored to be entrusted as president and to build upon the work and accomplishments of the last three years,” Shelton said. “When the industry works together to solve problems and create positive change in our community, we can get a lot done.” Tristan Strauss, founder and CEO of Headwaters, was president of CARP Growers for a one-year term and will become vice president for the next year. CARP Growers has committed over $150,000 per year to community and environmental causes in each of the last three years. In local schools, the association has underwritten a fulltime behavioral health and substance abuse counselor to work directly with students at Carpinteria Middle School. Other community investments include Girls Inc. of Carpinteria enrichment programs and the California Avocado Festival and California Women for Agriculture scholarship funds. “Transparency and proactive engagement of our neighbors and the community have been our top priorities,” Shelton said. “Five years ago, our industry was looked upon with skepticism. We set out to demonstrate that this is an industry of professionals and is completely compat-

Student Success Center enriches campus life for former Rincon/Foothill students
BY ODESSA STORK
Up until Fall of 2020, Carpinteria High School (CHS) students who were deficient in class credits or needed an individualized, independent study program were placed in Rincon/Foothill high schools. With the addition of the Student Success Center on the CHS campus, however, these students now have a centralized hub for learning, and are able to participate in the full range of activities and opportunities that come with being a Warrior. “The Student Success Center started this year, and it is a program where students who are credit deficient, who need to perhaps take a class that does not fit into their schedule, or are in a full independent study program, are able to take that class,” said CHS Principal Gerardo Cornejo. “Before, when students went to Rincon, they were basically dis-enrolled from Carpinteria High School and enrolled in Rincon High School.” Previously, students at Rincon/Foothill high schools were limited in the number of classes they could take, and they could not take CHS classes including the school’s agriculture, arts and culinary courses. This is no longer the case, though, and Cornejo also noted that the new program allows administrators to catch students who are falling behind earlier than before. “We’re able to serve more students,” Cornejo said, “Because under the continuation high school guidelines, students could only be enrolled at a continuation high school if they are 16 years or older. So, that means that we had perhaps a ninth grader or a 10th grader who was getting deeper and deeper in credit defi-
Carpinteria High School’s new Student Success Center is a learning hub for students who are credit deficient, as well as students pursuing independent study and advanced courses. ciency, and by the time we sent them to Rincon, they were significantly behind. With this program, there is no age limit, meaning as soon as a ninth grade or 10th grade student fails a class, we’re able to reschedule the student and give them that class for credit recovery (at the Student Success Center).” Credit-deficient students are typically assigned one or two class periods to be completed at the Student Success Center depending on their need, and they follow the regular, full-day CHS bell schedule. “Each student that goes into the Student Success Center (has) an intake meeting with our designated counselor for the program, Marlo Stoops, with our
regular academic counselors and also with our assistant principal Ms. Ortega, and they meet and develop a plan for that individual student,” Cornejo said. When developing each student’s unique learning plan, administrators evaluate why the student may be struggling, and consider whether the student may need additional resources outside of school. “It’s more prescribed support. The classroom is not set up as a regular class-

If we have, for example, a student who wants to take AP macroeconomics, and we are unable to have a full class, we can assign that student to the Student Success Center and have them complete that course in the center.” “It is also in the same building where our counseling services are. Our therapists, mental health support systems and academic counselors are all in the same building,” Cornejo continued. The center also allows students to take dual enrollment college courses if the student’s schedule permits, and CHS teachers who specialize in unique disciplines can offer their help to students pursuing complex topics. Lastly, Cornejo also noted that students who are not physically on campus can access Student Success Center services while they learn remotely or pursue the school’s independent study option. Moving forward, the Student Success Center will be the place where after-school tutoring takes place, too. “It’s going to be the hub of student services,” Cornejo said. “There’s an opportunity for us to be able to take a program and continuously adjust it to the needs of our students, and that’s the great thing about the Student Success Center: They are our students, they are our teachers, and they are able to fully participate in their education because they are part of Carpinteria High School.”

School Board expresses concerns with ﬂuctuations in Summerland School rebuilding budget BY EVELYN SPENCE
During the Carpinteria Uniﬁed School District April 13 board meeting, board members expressed concerns and sought clariﬁcations about the ﬂuctuating budget for the Summerland School demolition and rebuilding. The project was previously estimated at $5.6 million in January 2021. According to staﬀ working on the Summerland School project and related Measure U projects, the budget must now be upped to over $6.6 million due to several issues, primarily associated with obtaining a coastal development permit for the site. Despite hesitations from the board and heated exchanges between the board and project staﬀ over the diﬀering budgets, the board later unanimously approved the increase for a total preliminary budget of $6.6 million for the project. Joe Wilcox, from Kruger Bensen Ziemer Architects, said his team is anticipating approval of the plans by May 2021, with construction scheduled to begin in August 2021. All Summerland students and staff will be working at Main School during the 2021-2022 school year while demolition and construction is completed. However, Santa Barbara County must first approve a coastal development permit for the school site prior to the demolition and construction, according to Jonathan Leech from Dudek, an environmental consulting ﬁrm that is working on the project. Obtaining the permit is one of “numerous challenges” the project presents, Cindy Abbott, CUSD’s Measure U facilities coordinator, clariﬁed. Abbott said the county is requesting additional sidewalks and drainage near the school, which has delayed the approval of the project and has resulted in additional contract fees. Adhering to the county’s requests could ultimately lead to a total estimated $372,593 increase in budget, Abbott added. Wilcox clariﬁed that in January 2021, the budget was based on the construction costs within the site itself, which didn’t include unforeseen costs related to obtaining a coastal development permit. Both Leech and Wilcox attributed part of the budgetary increase to the county’s role in the rebuilding of the Summerland School and in obtaining the coastal development permit. “We had to go back and forth multiple times (with the county over the permit),” Robert Robles, from Robert Robles Architects, said. Both board members Jayme Bray and Andy Schaeﬀer asked for clariﬁcations about the frequent ﬂuctuations in the budget, as well as over the county’s purview over the project. Schaeffer expressed concern over what he called “a continuing escalation in costs” and asked why the Summerland School presented these challenges for building compared to other CUSD schools. Wilcox clariﬁed that all of the other schools are located within the city, and thus are subject to city guidelines, while the Summerland school location falls within county jurisdiction. “It just so happens that with the city of Carpinteria you had a very cooperative agency, and with the county of Santa Barbara you have a very uncooperative agency,” Leech said. Wilcox added: “They’re treating us like developers.” Leech added that most of the changes at the other campuses were “minor,” while the Summerland School plans involve demolishing the entire school and rebuilding. “It seems like (the county) basically (doesn’t) have any qualms over squan-
dering public resources, and that’s really what it is,” Schaeffer said. “We can’t aﬀord this.” The board also approved several other budget decisions relating to Measure U projects, including transferring $700,000 in bond earnings for the new CHS administration building; reducing $450,000 in the budget for the construction at Aliso; and approving $450,000 for painting at the Main School. Speaking during the public comment portion of the meeting, long-time Carpinteria community member Michael LoMonaco said the project has been a “sinking ship” since day one. “The frustration you guys feel at the board level for Summerland School is probably about an eighth of the frustration that we feel at the community level. I just want to make sure you guys understand that,” he said.
Despite hesitations from the board and heated exchanges between the board and project staﬀ over the diﬀering budgets, the board later unanimously approved the increase for a total preliminary budget of $6.6 million for the project.

I’ll opt for sticks and stones CVN
COFFEE, CAREER AND KIDDOS T E R E S A A LVA R E Z I have lost track of how many times I have warmed up my Mayan Mocha, and I think that if someone else asks me for a snack, I might lose it. I have finally found just enough time to sit and reflect on something that’s been replaying in my mind. Last week, at the Girls Inc. Women of Inspiration event, local business owner and inspirational speaker Jenny Schatzle talked about changing the conversation. She talks about changing the conversation around different topics, but today I want to focus on body image and negative self-talk. We’ve all heard the expression, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” From personal experience, words have hurt me and have left open wounds that have taken years and a lot of therapy to heal. Growing up, my family called me “flaca” (skinny girl). I was OK being “flaca” until I physically wasn’t anymore. I’m sure my parents had no ill intention when giving me that nickname; after all, I had a slender frame, but later that term became a standard I had to maintain. When I entered high school, I joined sports; I became disciplined about my workouts and the foods I ate. The summer before senior year, I traveled to Mexico and indulged in all of the delicious foods. Of course, I was on vacation, so you bet I was not running 3-4 miles a day and doing drills. When I came back for volleyball tryouts, my coach commented about my weight gain and it sent me spiraling. I remember thinking, I have to be skinny again! I was no longer “flaca.” That comment led to a very unhealthy relationship with food and a struggle to accept my body. As a Latina, and maybe they do this in other cultures as well, I grew up hearing nicknames like “gorda” (fat girl), chaparro (shorty) and of course “flaca” (skinny girl). All of these are terms
For the record... In a photo that was published in last week’s paper in the story “Making their mark,” a woman was misidentified. The correct name of the woman pictured who is selling jewelry is Kristin Cahill. In the article, “Council voices concern with county’s Bailard Ave. housing project,” published in last week’s issue, the meeting date for the tentatively scheduled consideration of the DDA and ground lease for the property at 10011002 Bailard Ave. was misstated. The tentative meeting date is May 10, 2021.
I grew up hearing nicknames like “gorda” (fat girl), chaparro (shorty) and of course “flaca” (skinny girl). All of these are terms of endearment, but after hearing them so often, they become a part of our internal dialogue.
of endearment, but after hearing them so often, they become a part of our internal dialogue. Since becoming a mom, I’ve become hyperaware of what I say around my two boys, especially about my body and the comments I make about them or people’s bodies and appearance. I still struggle with my relationship with food and how my body looks, but it’s a challenge I’m working on overcoming. It is to do so when I acknowledge that this body gave birth to two amazing and healthy baby boys. Join me, and Jenny Schatzle, in changing the conversation for our children and ourselves. Remember that our kids are watching what we do and, most importantly, listening to what we say. I could go on and on about this topic because I find it so important, but I’ll stop here before my coffee gets cold… again!

Praise for the Rincon Trail resolution
At an April 13 Zoom meeting, the Carpinteria Environmental Review Committee designated “Alternative #4” as the “environmentally superior alternative” for the Rincon Trail project. This will align the extension of the coastal bike route near the southbound Highway 101 and preserve the Little Diamond Head bluff that is currently used for flying activities by paragliders and hang glider pilots. This will be less environmentally intrusive and lower the costs of the bike route extension. The local, regional and statewide flying community, as well as local residents and tourists, are very happy that this site will be preserved. Bicyclists will not have vehicle or pedestrian conflicts in the Rincon Point parking lot,
and they will have protection from the prevailing southwest winds and vehicle traffic on the southbound Highway 101. Beach goers will not be subjected to beach closures due to construction or noise and debris removal.

Bailard Avenue proposal: We can do better
In addition to concerns about neighborhood and agriculture, aren’t we concerned about how unattractive the Bailard Avenue proposal is? Surely we can do better.

Erik “Ponch” Estrada 5/27/1984 - 4/21/2020
Erik Estrada, AKA the Golden child and the one and only “Ponch” passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, at the age of 35. Just like Tommy Lasorda – “I bleed Dodger blue and when I die, I’m going to the big Dodger in the sky” – Erik attended the games and celebrated the LA Doyers World Championship victory with Alex, Mr. Feramisco, Sr., Tommy and Kobe. Erik is survived by his loving and caring Ama, Susana, hardworking Apa, Jose Luis, and seester, Jacqueline. He is also survived by his aunts, uncles, cousins, his brothers from another familia(s), nephews and nieces and many more. In addition to his immediate family, Erik leaves behind an incredible network of MTD Shuttle friends, neighbors (Lamar’s, Natasha, Dotts’, etc.), tías and tíos from another familia(s) that became family and many many more that he made throughout his 35 years of life in his charming small hometown of Carpinteria. Warrior Spirit Never Dies! He is preceded in death by his older brother, Alejandro “Alex,” and has reconnected in Heaven with his childhood friend, Paul Beaver, along with billions who have left us before, including his pets who have crossed the rainbow bridge to meet him in Heaven – his dog (Freddie), pet rabbits (DJ, Nala, Lucky or La Huera Dorada, Pecas and Choncho. If you knew “Ponch” you knew he loved his MTD shuttle rides around
Carpinteria, had a boisterous laugh, was the water boy for Alex’s sports teams, played football and baseball, survived the odds as a child due to complications as a newborn blue baby and miraculously only had one operation. He may have had a weak heart, however, he had a big heart of gold. During his time here, he found a way to start conversations with strangers, make you laugh and greet you with a contagious smile. He was great with vocabulary and loved his family. Erik loved pranking his family and friends; he was quite the comedian. He had a palette for fine food and sewing; he loved music of all genres, late night conversations with his friends via social media and was a die-hard fanatic of his Los Angeles Dodgers, Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Lakers, USC Trojans and Los Angeles Kings, but could not stand watching them lose. Erik did not learn how to deal with his brother Alex’s tragic death (killed by a drunk driver Sept. 27, 2009), and had he not been a passenger in a vehicle in which the driver crashed on April 15, 2020, nor had an elbow surgery, Erik would still be alive today enjoying and living life his way. Erik, we keep you alive through memories, always loved you and will continue to love you. We hope you are at peace and pain free. There will always be one Ponch – a unique gentle giant, the third Osa Panda; your light will continue to shine and your memory will Fight On for many years to come through the Erik Estrada Memorial Scholarship. Until we meet again – “Me entiendes/ You know what I’m saying?” Due to Covid-19 Erik’s family had a private burial service in May 2020 and a funeral mass/life celebration will be planned for this June 2021, once the state opens (fingers crossed) and TBA. There are simply not enough words to fully express our heartfelt thank you. Susana, Jose Luis and Jacqueline Estrada thank the community of Carpinteria, family and friends for all the love, prayers, sympathy and support you have extended to our family during this difficult time. All the love we have received has been very much appreciated. Thank you very much!

Open Letter to Governor Gavin Newsom Dear Governor Newsom, We are deeply dismayed to learn that Das Williams is seeking an appointment to the California Coastal Commission for the Central Coast. A controversial supervisor synonymous with Santa Barbara’s much-contested Cannabis Ordinance, Williams was barely able to retain his position in 2020 (even with the political and financial muscle of the cannabis industry). Indeed, there are serious ongoing conversations about a Recall of him and a ballot Referendum to upend his Cannabis Ordinance. Williams’ Ordinance has led to unprecedented, industrial levels of marijuana grows causing skunk stench and terpene production, that pollute our air from the mountains to the beaches. Moreover, these massive cannabis operations, with their associated effluent, are threatening our Environmentally Sensitive Habitats in the Coastal Zone and coastal streams. Indeed, Williams was the subject of a year-long Grand Jury investigation and Report that singled out his ethically challenged and pay-to-play politics with the cannabis lobby in Santa Barbara County. Additionally, he is the subject of a Referral to the US Attorney regarding the unprecedented levels of cannabis
operations surrounding Carpinteria High School, that have filled classrooms and football fields with a putrid stench, impacting staff and students who are 75% Hispanic. Presently, Williams’ lobbying for a cannabis dispensary on Santa Claus Lane, a Highway 101 onramp and beach access adjacent to year-round surf camps for children, has provoked intense community resistance. This matter alone would require Williams’ recusal from an expected Coastal Commission hearing and ruling. These are but a few of the myriad conflicts that would disqualify him from representing the citizens of California and ruling on the many crucial issues before the Coastal Commission. There are several qualified candidates to serve on the Coastal Commission including Santa Barbara Council Member Meagan Harmon, a land-use attorney, who was born and raised here. Regrettably, Das Williams has never had, nor merited, the respect of many of his First District constituents. He certainly does not belong on the California Coastal Commission.
Respectfully submitted by 148 Santa Barbara County residents from its five districts including Buellton, Carpinteria, Cuyama, Montecito, City of Santa Barbara, Lompoc, Santa Ynez, Solvang, Summerland, Tepesquet, and (by quorum) Concerned Carpinterians, a grass roots organization representing approximately 300 residents in the First District.

Carpinteria’s Environmental Review Committee has recommended that modifications be made to the Rincon Trail Project that will lessen its impacts on the soaring community’s launching site over Bates Beach.
Rincon Trail Project: Environmental Review Committee recommends alternative
SB County moves to the Orange Tier
Having met the necessary case rate and positivity rate for two weeks, Santa Barbara County moved into the Orange Tier effective April 21 at 8 a.m. This movement further eases restrictions and allows more indoor activities, in accordance with the rules and framework of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
On April 13, Carpinteria’s Environmental Review Committee met to consider the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Rincon Trail Project. The 45-day public review and comment period for the EIR will close at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 26, 2021. Extending from the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue, in the city of Carpinteria, to Rincon Beach County Park in Santa Barbara County, the proposed trail is 16-feet wide and 2,800 feet long and includes a 160-foot bridge over the train tracks owned by Union Pacific Railroad. The new, shared-use trail would provide a dedicated connection from Carpinteria Avenue to Rincon Beach along the existing benched slope adjacent to U.S. Highway 101. Future plans for Carpinteria’s Coastal Vista Trail would ultimately extend it from Padaro Lane to Rincon. Wind uplift patterns will be modified by the proposed trail, according to the study, which caused backlash from the soaring community which has used the point above Bates Beach as a launching site for decades. In response to these concerns, the committee recommended that the Planning Commission accept the EIR with a recommendation for an alternative (Alternative 4 in the report) that would impact the soaring community less. “Alternative 4 is preferable to the soaring community because it avoids eliminating the bluff face that they rely on for soaring,” said Nick Bobroff, principal planner for the city of Carpinteria, noting that some other environmental impacts may be greater. The design proposed in Alternative 4 would run parallel to the freeway all the way down to Bates. The committee’s second recommendation to the Planning Commission was to strengthen the mitigation language in relation to biological and water quality impacts before certifying the report. The Planning Commission is expected to hold a public hearing on certifying the EIR this summer. ––Debra Herrick

Channelkeeper to host Earth Day clean-up
Santa Barbara Channelkeeper’s Watershed Brigade will host a dispersed clean-up event on April 24-25 to complement Santa Barbara’s Virtual Earth Day celebration. The focus of the April 24-25 clean-up is on front country trails and turnouts, where trash often accumulates. Trailside litter flows through creeks and storm drains directly to the ocean. The Watershed Brigade’s community of environmental volunteers works to prevent this. For this dispersed event, volunteers will head out independently to different trails, front country parking areas and turnouts along the South Coast to remove trash. The goal over the weekend of April 24-25 is to clean trails and turnouts throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Organizers have created a map and sign-up form to ensure that participants target as many trail areas as possible. Community members can help the organization by signing up to clean a trail area in the watershed. Visit sbck.org/brigade/watershed-brigade-event/ for information or email Molly@sbck.org.

As Santa Barbara County moves into the Orange Tier, theaters are now able to open with capacity limits. Following guidelines, Alcazar will welcome the public for in-theater seating at 25% of their capacity, which is 50 seats.

Tickets will be scanned upon arrival and contactless payment is also encouraged. Inside the theater, ushers will assist guests and enforce social distancing. “It is a very special weekend for us and our community. We are excited to be able to open and welcome the community once again” said Karen Graf, Alcazar Theatre’s board president. “The theater wants to thank their community members for their contributions and support that has allowed the theater to open once again.” To kick off their reopening weekend, the theater will screen “The Last Picture Show” at 7 p.m. on Friday.

John Palminteri hosts Q&A with Wade Nomura as part of Save the Alcazar campaign
Selected images sought by historian Vince Burns will be used in the book “Rincon Point,” a pictorial history of the iconic surf spot.
Local historian seeks photos of Rincon Point for upcoming book
Local author and historian Vince Burns is looking for old photographs of Rincon Point – from the earliest days to the 1980s – that might be used in “Rincon Point,” a pictorial history to be published by Arcadia Publishing in its series, “Images of America.” The same series recently published two books on Carpinteria and La Conchita. “Key to the project are photographs, and the importance of family collections cannot be overemphasized,” Burns said. “Vintage photographs become increasingly fragile and by scanning and reproducing them in a book, they become available for all to see and are preserved forever.” Burns has worked in book and database library publishing for many years and recently retired from ABC-CLIO in Goleta. Along the way, he was involved in bringing out more than 10,000 books in his career. Burns also wrote a reference book on global terrorism and has published articles on publishing and European history. He has a doctorate in history from the University of Wisconsin, and his grandmother, Helen Anderson, built a house on Rincon Point in the 1970s. Anyone who would like to submit photographs to be considered for the book can contact Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 758-0338. Burns has a high-resolution scanner and can return photographs promptly. Although photographs are the heart of the project, Burns is also interested in community members’ special stories about Rincon Point.

Joe Sacks: The art of Bonsai sculpting
MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N Joe Sacks had been a Bonsai tree sculptor for two decades before he discovered what is now his artistic niche: hand-making one-of-a-kind pots, customized to suit each of his unique Bonsai trees. Tired of the lack of character in commercial pottery that only yielded the same narrow range of shapes and glaze color tones, Sacks decided to opt for a more contemporary style. He feels that his pots work with each Bonsai tree, in that both the tree and the pot complement each other. He believes that Bonsai trees should thrive rather than just survive. “There are many people who are Bonsai artists and few people who make pottery for Bonsai, but it’s much more rare for an artist to do both,” Sacks said. “I like the idea of being involved in both parts of the creative process, of styling and working with the tree and creating a pot that works for it. I appreciate a tree for what it is, but I like to enhance it with the addition of a pot that is unique to it.” Bonsai trees have an inherently attractive quality that makes them appeal to everyone, not just seasoned practitioners. “I love the idea that every tree is so unique,” Sacks said. “No tree is perfect, but with time, patience and proper Bonsai principles, you can enhance the tree and create a look that people can’t help being attracted to.” Sacks has been doing Bonsai sculpting for 28 years and is a longtime admirer of Asian art forms. In Asian cultures, Bonsai goes back well over a thousand years
Joe Sacks has been sculpting Bonsai trees for 28 years and takes an interdisciplinary approach to his work, combining Bonsai, pottery and driftwood. and has evolved over time. Each culture looks at it diﬀerently. Sacks’ personal style drifts more toward the Japanese Bonsai style, as it’s a little more reserved. In studying Bonsai, he has taken a liking to the philosophy of some Bonsai practitioners who believe that they are simply the tree’s current caretaker. “Most Bonsai trees, if cared for, will outlive us,” Sacks said. “Someone else will continue to care for them, styling the tree with their vision of what that tree could look like. With age comes enhanced tree structure. You have to look at a tree and envision what the tree might be in ten or twenty years, what it could become. As you work with a tree, you literally watch it evolve and develop over time.” When Sacks sells a Bonsai tree to a customer, that development continues. “If someone owns a couple Bonsai trees, applies Bonsai techniques and follows them in their progression, that technically makes them a Bonsai artist,”
Sacks said. “I’m just another Bonsai artist, but with more than a couple trees.” Sacks’ interdisciplinary approach to his craft allows him to continue expanding upon his art while he continues to educate himself, examining different types of art and integrating them into his current work. “I had started taking a ceramics class and after throwing a couple pots, I thought, ‘What if I try and make a pot for one of my trees?’” Sacks recalled. “My first attempt was okay, so I just kept making them. I started making and adapting pots to the trees planted in them. I started studying calligraphy a couple years ago, which has transitioned into the carving of some of my pottery pieces and using brushwork in some of my glaze applications. I love how disciplines can cross over.” Sacks’ interdisciplinary approach

Joaquin and Sukie Ornelas celebrate 58 years
Joaquin and Sukie Ornelas will celebrate 58 years of marriage on April 27. Joaquin and Sukie have three children, Joaquin Jr., Danny and Jorge and two grandchildren. Due to this year’s unique circumstances, they will celebrate their union with family. Joaquin and Sukie were part of a group of friends that went to movies and many teen dances in Santa Barbara. The jury is out on just who initiated the first date, but their first official date was going to see a movie. They married on April 27, 1963 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Santa Barbara. They honeymooned in Ensenada, Baja California, and moved to Carpinteria in 1965.
Today they remain influential members of St. Joseph’s Parish. As acknowledgement to the many years of dedicated service to the church, the Pope honored Joaquin and Sukie with the distinguished Benemerenti medal. Joaquin worked as a mechanic starting at Scotty Moffett Ford, which was located at 5293 Carpinteria Ave. and finally retired 52 years later from Mel Clayton Ford in Santa Barbara. Sukie was the first hired employee for Kilovac, which was located at 550 Linden Ave. She retired 46 years later from Dow Key Microwave in Ventura. The highlight of their marriage continues to be the celebration of life with their family. They enjoy each and every moment with their children and granddaughters.
Seal Fountain prank wastes 500 gal. of water
A passerby captured this image of the Linden Avenue Seal Fountain on the morning of April 18, but the prank is an unwelcome sight for city officials. “This is a frustration for us. Putting soap in the downtown fountain is vandalism,” said Matt Roberts, Parks and Recreation director. “It takes our staff about two hours to clean the fountain and remove the soap. We are always working to maintain and improve our public facilities, and this takes time away from our work program. It also wastes about 500 gallons of water. To those who are responsible, please stop!”

Muralism unveils Boathouse mural
The nonproﬁt Muralism, in partnership with the city of Carpinteria, oﬃcially unveiled the now-completed Ash Avenue Boathouse mural honoring the late Carpinteria artist Ray Cole on Saturday, April 17. In a joyous show of community support, Carpinterians turned out in numbers to celebrate the mural’s completion. “It was fabulous,” said Jill Castro. “The town showed up, which was so beautiful to see now that we are reopening again. It was heartwarming to see everybody there again.” Castro, who can be seen in paint-form on a kayak in the Boathouse mural, was a longtime friend of Cole’s. She explained that her late husband Gary had taken a photograph of her on her kayak the day after 9/11. With the world still in shock, she had spontaneously decided to paddle out with an American ﬂag, and dolphins began following along. From there, her husband commissioned Cole to paint the photograph as a gift, and Castro still owns the original. Today, Cole’s original painting – and Castro’s picturesque moment – live on in the completed Ash Avenue mural.
Jill Castro stands beside the mural that she makes a special appearance in.

Hunting for business advice at Homestead Antiques CVN
TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P It was the pottery that started it all. Or maybe, the silver? Mary Beth Radley has worked in the antique industry for over two decades, even before opening Homestead Antiques & Trading Co. on Linden Avenue in 1998. Radley’s interests in antiques have changed over the years. Lately, she’s flirting with unusual items made of wood and natural fibers. Her style is something you would categorize as “organic.” She mixes aesthetics gracefully too, displaying vintage china and wooden candlesticks together in a cool and unexpected way. Her business is unique from other antique stores in this way, expressing Radley’s personal vision. Aside from her own curated collection, set up in a space near the register, Homestead Antiques showcases 16 other vendors under one roof similar to a “collective” or “antique mall.” “We’re definitely eclectic,” Radley said. “I tell everybody we have 16 different pairs of eyes on similar things, but (each antique dealer) has a different take on one object so they can present it the way that they see it.” Radley noted that each curated presentation makes a more exciting shopping experience than simply organizing items on a shelf. One fell swoop around her store, and you’ll see why. Oil paintings, tribal masks, classic furniture and more are displayed in little vignettes to transport you into imagining what could work in your home. Each dealer prices their heirloom pieces, cleans their displays and pays rent each month to keep space. “I have to say, I’m so lucky because they all do it so well,” said Radley. Her business model has proven to work. Radley opened in February of 1998 (initially with a business partner, but solo since 2006). About a quarter of Radley’s
vendors have been with her since the very beginning. She credits this tight-knit group to being the key to her success. “After 23 years, we definitely have a family here,” Radley said. “One dealer will help another dealer out in a second. That’s the way our store operates, and I love that. We are 16 different places, but we are a true team.” So how did Radley get into antiques anyway? Like any good antique junky, she needed more space to “have an outlet for my shopping addiction,” she joked. Since the late 80s, she has been in the antique business. At first she rented spaces because it was an outlet for her overflow; then she opened a store in the early 90s; and a few years later, she opened Homestead. Her trade secret for anyone wanting to open a retail shop is simple: “You have to be consistent. You have to know that it’s a lot of hard work. There are some very fun aspects about it, and there are some really hard things to do, and sometimes it’s not fun,” Radley said. “Consistency

Even in the good times or the bad times, because there are some bad, obviously, like the past year we

went through,” Radley said. “Just have the confidence to keep going.” Homestead Antiques & Trading Co. is located at 943 Linden Ave. Megan Waldrep is a columnist and freelance writer, currently living on a 34-foot sailboat. To learn more about Megan, visit meganwaldrep.com.
For many, this past year has been a reminder that Carpinteria has a deeply rooted culture of caring. In week eight of her 10-week series, photographer Ingrid Bostrom captures portraits of some of Carpinteria’s most compassionate citizens. ANDRES & BRIANNA NUÑO MARCO ALARCON • JOSH STANFORD This team was nominated by Brianna Adam for “bringing so much joy and happiness during the holidays.” Brianna and Andres Nuño were scheming about how to bring the Carpinteria Holiday Lights tour to their neighborhood this past 2020 holiday season. The holiday lights tour is a long-standing benefit event for Canalino Elementary School, and like any function this year, it was modified from pre-pandemic trolley rides to a socially-distanced caravan and scavenger hunt. The Nuños and their immediate neighbors amped up their decorations and planned for Andres to transform into “Santa Gordo” and dance on the roof to persuade the committee to add their street to the tour. DJs Marco Alarcon and Josh Stanford (not pictured) teamed up with the Nuños and brought along their equipment and DJ skills to get Santa and all the passerbys groovin’. Families brought folding chairs and refreshments to take in the rooftop show. It was our first pandemic holiday season and people were weary, aching for something to celebrate, and anything to smile about. The crowds and feedback demonstrated how much this festive grand gesture meant to our community. The crew decided to offer an encore a few nights before Christmas and had an even greater turn out. The Nuños and DJs Alarcon and Stanford plan to continue this holiday tradition. The team hopes to give back in additional ways this year by hosting a toy drive or some type of donation effort during the event.

Olive oil cake with salt and pepper roasted berries
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Oil or butter a 10” round cake pan, and line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, olive oil, blood orange juice and zest until fully incorporated. Using a fine mesh strainer, sift dry ingredients into the wet and whisk until batter comes together. Scrape batter into a prepared pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool the cake completely, then run a knife around the edge of the pan. Invert cake out of pan, remove parchment paper, and invert back onto your cake stand or serving plate.
Salt and pepper roasted berries:
Chef Heather grew up in upstate New York. She followed her dream of living in Southern California and received her certificate in Culinary Arts at SBCC. She has worked at many places coast to coast, including Eleven Madison Park in New York City, and earned the Executive Pastry Chef title at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. She currently is head of the pastry program at The Food Liaison in Carpinteria and has gained a loyal following from near and far. She is passionate about bringing people joy with her delicious desserts.
2 cups whole blueberries 2 cups quartered strawberries ¾ cup sugar ½ t salt ¼ t fresh ground black pepper Juice of 1 lemon Juice of 1 orange
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Mix all ingredients in a baking pan. Roast uncovered for 8 minutes. Stir the mixture and return to the oven. Roast for an additional 5-8 minutes or until the fruit juices start to thicken, and there is a little color on your berries. Cool, and reserve for drizzling over your cake slices.
A culinary treasure that grows right here in our backyards is olives. California produces some of the finest olive oils in the world, and this week I’m excited to share a dessert recipe that highlights this fine fruit! When I first heard about olive oil cake, I was hesitant to jump on board. I thought it sounded too savory and unusual, but boy was I glad I gave it a try. I was delighted to taste a cake with a perfectly crunchy outside and a deliciously moist, oil-rich center. The hint of acid from the orange juice and citrus zest is the perfect complement to this insanely rich cake. The sweet and savory roasted berries make a fine pairing, and if you are feeling extra indulgent, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of mascarpone whipped cream. This cake recipe is great because you can use it in many different ways. You can make cupcakes, Bundt cakes, loafs or even a layered cake. I recently made a birthday cake for one of The Food Liaison’s favorite clients and wanted to make it extra special. I used this olive oil cake recipe, filled the cake with lemon curd and berries, and frosted the cake with mascarpone
2 cups All Purpose Flour 1 ¾ cup sugar 1 ½ t salt ½ t baking soda 1 t baking powder 3 eggs 1 ¼ cup milk (room temperature) 1 ½ cup extra virgin olive oil ½ cup blood orange juice Zest of 1 blood orange Zest of 1 lemon *Note: Feel free to substitute orange or lemon juice for the blood orange juice.

Elkhorn Plain chronicles
UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM Night vision revealed all the inhabitants the remote Elkhorn Plain had to offer. We peered at the results from the Flir Camera (night vision camera) and were blown away by the nocturnal pulse that had come alive under the cover of darkness, a seemingly barren biome tucked away in the hinterlands of the southeast corner of San Luis Obispo County. I had been hired as a wildlife guide for a film crew documenting California’s wildlife for PBS. Early one morning, while bouncing along 40-mile-long Elkhorn Road, an American badger had just rumbled out into the open road. It was aiming for one of its many dens. When it arrived at an entry point, it looked over its shoulder at me one more time before diving in. Its underground, subterranean dwelling not only allowed it to beat the heat, but also to allude this frustrated photographer and cameraman.
Sun seared plain
There’s no shade out on the Elkhorn Plain, no place to hide from the sun as the days grow longer into summer. The plain extends for 20 miles and is bordered by the Elkhorn and Panorama Hills to the west, which are a result tectonic uplift and where they ascend above the serpentine scar that is the San Andreas Fault. To the east are the apparently barren and daunting Temblor Mountains. Elkhorn Road is a dirt road that stretches for 40 miles through Elkhorn Plain and beyond. I drive it slowly, window rolled down and my binoculars and camera always at the ready. It is one of the sunniest, hottest regions of California, but it is also the best place to see some of the state’s rarest and most endangered wildlife species, wildlife well-adapted to surviving without little or no water, animals that spend much of their time in their complex burrows during the heat of the day. The Plain is roughly two miles wide, encompassing 8,600 acres. Elkhorn Plain rolls along, crossing over many dry, gravelly, seasonal arroyos. Several ranching relics still cling to the tan, buffed hillsides, providing ideal habitat for nesting songbirds, ravens and great horned owls and perching habitat for opportunistic red-tailed and ferruginous hawks, prairie falcons and America kestrels. Occasionally I’ll see a golden eagle on Elkhorn Plain, usually on the ground, hopping along on the rolling foothills of the Temblors. Powerful enough to take down a small deer, ground level prey may include snakes, lizards and ground squirrels, but they have also been known to take kit fox pups.
I slithered out of the opening in my tent, elbows and toes inching forward to eventually within 8 feet of their wellworn burrow. The kits couldn’t help themselves. They began with demonstrative charges into their burrow, but it was only a minute before they were peeping over the edge of their burrows, then creeping toward me before foraging continued after I was deemed a non-threat. Maintaining a low center of gravity has always been key to intermingling with the inhabitants of the Elkhorn Plain. Needless to say, I spend a lot of time on my belly, crawling along with a ground level view of life in one of the most remote slivers of California. However, sometimes it does not begin with wildlife. Green ephedra is one of the dominant species of flora on Elkhorn Plain. It recently stopped me in my tracks right off Elkhorn Road. There was no “Super Bloom” in California in 2021, but some years there’s certain native flora that blooms enough with just the right amount of moisture received. When I came upon that green ephedra, it was adorned in mustard-colored blooms and being swarmed by beetles. However, it was also a haven for another antelope ground squirrel family holding six tiny kits, but also a bi-pedaling, juvenile blunt-nose leopard lizard, another endangered species on the high plain veld. I slowly slinked out of my truck, maneuvering my way onto a gravelly pan. Before I knew it the kits were all around me, but so was the juvenile blunt-nose leopard lizard. It wasn’t as brave as its scruffy counterparts, only sticking its head out of a convenient burrow.
Dawn breaks on the Elkhorn Plain with moon set. the distance I saw three San Joaquin kit fox pups frolicking around their den. Arguably the most amazing animal on the plain, they have incredible hearing, but can go their whole lives without a drop of water. I never did get to photograph that badger, let alone see it again until the following week, foraging ravenously in the distance. The film crew and I learned that badgers can burrow over 900 meters from one den to the next. For eight hours
I sat on that initial den hoping it would at least stick its black snout above ground but to no avail, as they continue to be my nemesis on the desolate Elkhorn Plain. Adventure and travel writer Chuck Graham lives in Carpinteria and contributes his writing and photography to publications far and wide.

No water required
While patiently waiting for that crafty badger, one of their favorite meals was hopping all around me. Believe it or not, the giant kangaroo rat, another endangered species, is the keystone architect of the Elkhorn Plain. It is always hard to fathom that such a small, sort of awkward rodent is deemed vital to a such a unique ecosystem, but there’s no denying it as I sat within a large circumference of one of their mowed down burrowing sites. Giant kangaroo rats provide most everything for badgers, kit foxes, burrowing owls, antelope ground squirrels, longtailed weasels and blunt-nose leopard lizards. They are a food source for them but also for several species of owls, hawks and falcons. Their abandoned burrows become homes and refuges for much of the wildlife mentioned in this story. Antelope ground squirrels don’t even have to bother reconstructing their burrows. They are ready made for the little hooligans of the grassland biome. From that same low-angled vantage point I scanned with my binoculars. In
Foxtails, sweat and patience
At dawn and sleepy-eyed, I poked my head out of my tent to find a glorious sunrise, puffy clouds awash in sweeping pink and oranges hues. Also enjoying the swath of brilliantly fleeting tones was a family of San Joaquin antelope ground squirrels. Their kits were playful, stretching and rolling while dust bathing and in between games of chase through their complex burrows.
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: A juvenile blunt-nose leopard lizard peers at the author from the safety of a burrow on the Elkhorn Plain. An antelope ground squirrel belts out a distress trill to her offspring. A Western Pacific rattlesnake flattens itself to absorb as much heat as possible. “I tried to get it to move but it wouldn’t budge,” said Graham. A beetle enjoys the green ephedra.

Track and field notches a win against Cate PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING Experience made the difference on Thursday, April 15 as the Carpinteria Warriors swept crosstown rival Cate in a dual meet in both the boys and girls competitions. With four meets under their belt, the Warriors defeated the Rams in their season opener and had a strong showing in the field events. The meet also marked the Warrior girls’ first win of the young season. Vincent Rinaldi continued his speedy performances, setting a PR of 10.99 in the 100 meters and earning the second-fastest time in school history. He also won the 200-meter event with a 22.32 clocking. Fellow team captain Esai Vega continues to improve in the throws. He set a 41-1 PR in the shot put and a 134-7 PR in the discus to win both events. Tristan Cravens was a double winner in the hurdles. He set a new PR of 19.20 in the 110-meter highs. On the girls’ side, Fatima Cervantes won the 100-meter hurdles in her first attempt at the event with a time of 20.03. She also won the high jump with 4-8 clearance. Ainslee Alexander was a triple winner for the Warrior girls. She won her newly acquired event, the shot put, with a toss of 26-2.25. She also won her usual events, the long and triple jump, with marks of 14-10 and 31-9.75, respectively.

Boys volleyball drops season opener to Hueneme
Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California
CHS middle blocker Joaquin Gonzalez attempts to use the Hueneme block to the Warrior advantage.
The Warrior boys volleyball team dropped their first match of the season against the Hueneme Vikings in a five set loss on Friday, April 16. “We won the first two sets 25-14 and 25-13,” said coach Mickey Caughey. “We were feeling pretty good and playing even better. So, I decided to give some of our other players a chance to play in the third set. After all, they had been playing decently in our practices. But it was like someone turned the competitive switch on for the Vikings. I then had to put all the starters back in and we were making a good comeback, but Hueneme was like a completely different team than the one that played us in the first two sets.” The Warriors fought back hard but eventually lost the third set 25-27. Hueneme took the fourth set 25-17. In the fifth game tie breaker, both teams changed leads several times with no one gaining more than a two-point lead throughout the set. Unfortunately for the Warriors, Hueneme held the last two-point lead and won the set 13-15, taking the match 3-2. As a team, the Warriors recorded 19 aces, five of which were earned by Sol Ortega. Joaquin Gonzales and Zach Isaac each recorded five kills apiece, contributing to Carpinteria’s total of 16 kills. “It’s very unusual for a team to record more blocks than kills, but we did it this time with a total of 19 blocks, with Arata Tomatsuri getting six of those blocks,” Caughey said. The Warriors had 154 digs for the match, with Gavin Lohuis getting 35, Reyn Clayton getting 29 and Arata Tomatsuri getting 25.
Baseball defeats Hueneme, falls to Santa Paula
The Warriors relied on a good pitching performance and a potent offense to set the tone for an 11-0 Citrus Coast League win over the visiting Hueneme Vikings on Tuesday, April 13. The Warriors pounded out 15 hits and played errorless defense behind Miles Souza’s complete game victory. The win was the second overall for the Warriors, the second in two tries within the Citrus Coast League and Souza’s second win on the mound. Luke Lounsbury paced the Warrior attack going 4 for 5 with a triple, two runs and two RBI. Souza helped his own cause as he was two for three with three RBI and a run scored. Erich Goebel, Beto Martinez and Oscar Velazquez were each two for three with two runs scored while ninth hitter Matt Muñoz was one for two with three runs scored. Souza and catcher Diego Nievez were on the same page and worked efficiently. The Warriors combined on just 78 pitches as they surrendered just two hits in seven innings while striking out seven and walking one. “Today was an interesting day at Calderwood Field. We really tried some different things, as all of the infielders were in new positions,” coach Pat Cooney said. “Souza is so reliable that he really gives players the opportunity to relax and play well. The best thing about the offense was that the hitters continued to make good contact toward the middle of the field. Top to bottom, there was focus in the approach at the plate.” Next up, the Warriors hit the road for the first time this season on Thursday, April 15 as they faced Santa Paula in more Citrus Coast League action. This time, Carpinteria fell short, dropping a 19-7 decision to the Cardinals. The Warriors squandered gutsy pitching performances by Isaac Cervantes, who had just rejoined the team after football season, and Erich Goebel who was pitching efficiently before the defensive lapses in the fourth inning. Goebel paced the offense going three for three with two runs scored, while Miles Souza collected two hits, two runs and an RBI. Freshman Oscar Velazquez had a hit, an RBI and scored. “We had the inning where the wheels came off, but it was a game with many positives,” Cooney said. “Souza had a great game at shortstop, our young catcher Diego Nieves was courageous and senior Isaac Cervantes pitched with grit as he only has two practices under his belt. We’ll be alright. We definitely saw some encouraging signs.”
Boys tennis splits a pair of matches against Nordhoff and Cate
The Carpinteria boys tennis team defeated a short-handed Nordhoff team 16-2 in their first Citrus Coast League match of the year on Tuesday, April 13. “We played our best overall match of the year to date,” said coach Charles Bryant. “We performed much better in doubles this match and really did a good job of cutting back on our simple mistakes and errors … We also played much smarter overall yet with a more aggressive attitude, making better choices with our shots and being more mobile and moving together a little better.” Due to the default of Nordhoff’s third doubles team, all of Carpinteria’s doubles teams ended up sweeping. The team of Ian Thomas and Zaiden Juarez won both matches, as did Nolan Martin and Connor Gralewski. At third doubles, Mathew Endow and Troy Zimmerman played their third dual match together and showed their best effort yet, Bryant said. In singles, brothers Austin and Max Stone, along with Ryan Souza, each went 2-0 before being subbed out. “They are a tough trio of players who will get us a lot of points moving forward,” Bryant said. “But our last point was scored by Steven Bengry, who had just subbed in and had quite a battle on his hands going back and forth before pulling out a 7-5 win against the Rangers’ No. 2 player.” On Thursday, April 15, however, things didn’t go Carpinteria’s way, as the Warriors fell to Cate 12-6 in a non-league matchup. Austin and Max Stone both swept their singles sets for the Warriors’ only points of the match. “They played really well today and had a tough competitor in Jinming Wang from Cate,” Bryant said. “Austin and Max were able to win but those matches were very entertaining.” “Cate seemed to handle the tight sets better than us,” Bryant continued. “I think
Senior Christian Flores eventually wins a battle for possession and scores his first goal of the season cutting the lead at that point 2-1.
their match-play experience really helped. But I am hoping the tougher competition that we faced today will aid us in the long run. Connor Gralewski and Nolan Martin really fought hard in their second and third sets. I was impressed with how well they scrambled and never gave up on points. Ian Thomas and Mathew Endow had good chemistry in their first outing together,” Bryant said. The team is now 2-2 overall and 1-0 in Citrus Coast League competition.
Girls soccer falls to Hueneme on the road
The Carpinteria girls soccer team lost a hard-fought match 0-1 at Hueneme last Friday, April 16. “The game was very physical but our players stood up to a lot of pushing, shoving and shirt pulling and played with a lot of heart, per usual,” said coach Lucy Carleton. Sophomore keeper Ariana Lounsbury had four saves, while senior defender Clarissa Ramirez had one: a brilliant header off the line after she tracked back to cover Lounsbury when she had come out to block a shot. “Our communication was better, but we still need to work on offense,” Ramirez said. Senior Zahea Hamadi had some nice forays into the Hueneme backline from where she was playing defense, dribbling through the entire Hueneme team. Kenna Mayer stoked defensive enthusiasm with her strong play and exciting sliding tackles. Samantha Cruz sparked the offense with her penetrating runs, as well as defensive positioning until she had to leave the game with a pulled hamstring. Freshman Isela Zamora did not back down from any ball, having possibly her best game to date, as did sophomore Julianna Ornelas.
Girls tennis extends winning streak with victories over Nordhoff and Santa Paula
The Carpinteria girls tennis team earned some critical wins en route to an 11-7 victory against Nordhoff in a Citrus Coast League matchup on Thursday, April 14. “I told the girls at the end of the match that we escaped with a win. We did not play well in many of our sets. It seemed we just did not have the mental preparation prior to the match and were distracted by a basic lack of focus,” coach Charles Bryant noted. In singles, Zahra Porinsh continued her undefeated season, winning all three of her sets. She had a back and forth battle with the Rangers’ No. 1 player, but pulled away at the end. “She showed a lot of grit and determination as she was down late in the set before making her comeback,” Bryant said.

CVN Silke Leonard went 1-2 but also had a great comeback against Nordhoff’s No. 2 player, battling to reach 5-5 after being down 1-5 before ultimately falling 5-7. Neida Garcia also went 1-2. The doubles teams saved the day for the Warriors, as the No. 2 team of Maria Valeria Ojeda and Abbie Delwiche swept their three sets and recorded a huge win against the Rangers duo at just the right time. Cassandra Maya Prado and Natalia Perez went 2-1, and Ashley Gonzalez and Fiona Casbarro went 1-2. On Monday, April 19, the team extended their unbeaten streak to 5-0 in another Citrus Coast League victory against Santa Paula. The Warriors defeated the Cardinals 15-3. In singles, Zahra Porinsh swept three sets without losing a game. Silke Leonard also swept, and Neida Garcia won two sets and lost a hard-fought battle against the Cardinals’ No. 2 player. In doubles, Abbie Delwiche and Natalia Perez swept their matches, as did Cassandra Maya Prado and Maria Valeria Ojeda. Both teams dropped just three games total. “Both duos played really well and were trying a few different strategies throughout their sets,” Bryant said. “It was good to see their chemistry as well.” The Warriors’ final point came from Gabbie Smith and Ashley Gonzalez as they squeaked out a 7-5 win against the Cardinals’ number three team. “We have work to do, especially fine tuning our lineup,” Bryant said. “But I was very happy with our performance. We started strong and did not let the Cardinals get into the match unlike our last dual match. We were mentally ready today, which was nice to see.”

Girls Inc. of Carpinteria hosts vaccination clinic for cannabis workers
Over 290 ﬁrst doses of the Covid-19 vaccine were administered this weekend as Girls Inc. of Carpinteria hosted a vaccination clinic for local cannabis workers. “The information was shared with us via Carpinteria Children’s Project (CCP) that Santa Barbara Public Health was looking for locations to do clinics,” said Girls Inc. executive director Jamie Collins. “We signed up and then reached out to CARP Growers in partnership with Glasshouse Farms and CCP to host a clinic.” “Girls Inc. and Santa Barbara County were incredibly efﬁcient in putting this event together and making it easy for our member farms to participate,” said Peter Dugre of CARP Growers. “It was important to give employees access to vaccinations during work hours to make sure that everyone who wants a vaccine can get one. With more people protected against the virus, there will be fewer pathways to spread it in schools, at grocery stores and throughout the area. It’s fantastic.” The workers’ second dose is scheduled for May 14, and Girls Inc. is in the process of working with the Public Health Department to schedule another ﬁrst-dose clinic to reach non-proﬁt parents and high school students.
