Carpinteria Dune & Shoreline Management Project

KARLSSON

Carpinteria’s Public Works department has begun improvements to the pedestrian crossing and sidewalks on Linden Avenue near the popular burger stand, The Spot, which has chosen to close during the construction to remodel their dining area.

City brings walkways to ADA compliance

The city of Carpinteria Public Works Department has begun infrastructure improvements at Linden and Dorrance avenues near The Spot that will bring the sidewalk, curb and crosswalk up to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. The work is part of the city’s Pedestrian Crossing Safety Improvements Project. “We’re upgrading curb ramps to ADA compliance,” said John Ilasin, director of Public Works. “The crosswalk across Linden Avenue will be a painted crosswalk similar to crosswalks at the north part of Linden Avenue. Some areas of the sidewalk, such as the sidewalk in front of The Spot, will be replaced.” Hungry hamburger lovers may have noticed that The Spot has been closed since construction began. The burger stand owners chose to close until the new sidewalks were in place and are also preparing for their own restaurant improvements, said Ilasin. The Spot’s remodel will rebuild the existing dining room, albeit slightly taller, said Nick Bobroff, principal planner. “There will also be new lighting, limited new landscaping, some walkway improvements and parking lot improvements.”

Mixed-use project on Linden Avenue erects story poles

Story poles were recently erected on Linden Avenue to represent the height of a mixed-use development proposed for the 700 block. The proposed adaptive reuse project would remodel and reconfigure the existing An artist rendering of the proposed project at 700 buildings on the Linden Ave. property to create a multi-tenant retail, restaurant and office development with a central outdoor plaza. The project includes a new second floor addition comprised of 2,443 sq ft of office suites, a 614 sq ft bar and 2,887 sq ft of rooftop deck/patio areas. A 20-space surface parking lot is proposed for the rear of the property, accessed from Cactus Lane. The project is just beginning the city’s permitting process and will be considered at several public hearings prior to approval. It will undergo preliminary review by the Architectural Review Board on Thursday, April 29 at 5:30 p.m.

Second dose brings needed relief for many

BY DEBRA HERRICK

On Saturday, Carpinteria Health Care Center held their follow up clinic for people who received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine earlier this month at the Walnut Avenue clinic. Hundreds of adults residing or working in Carpinteria received the second dose of the free Covid vaccination, helping to bring the county one step closer to herd immunity. For many, the second dose of the Covid vaccine brought welcome relief after over a year of fears and anxieties around the health of oneself and their loved ones. Maria Tafoya was at the clinic with her 24-year-old daughter, Diana Leon, who has epilepsy. Leon works at Smart & Final, and Tafoya has been worried about her health throughout the pandemic. “It was stressful for us caring for her,” said Tafoya. “I was worried but I’m much more calm now with the vaccine.” After months of sparce work, Tafoya is also pleased to be receiving more calls to come back to cleaning her clients’ homes, many of whom are older and have also just recently received their vaccines. Taking a break from work at Sun Coast Rentals, Fernando Gallardo was able to receive his second dose at Saturday’s clinic. In Gallardo’s household, eight people were sick with Covid-19 in January. Gallardo, his parents, two sisters, brother-in-law and two young nieces were all sick with Covid at the same time. His mother, who has diabetes, and his father were hospitalized for a week. “It was pretty bad,” said Gallardo. “I just tried to be as productive and positive as possible for my family’s sake.” Over 500 individuals have completed their two-dose course of the Moderna vaccine at the Carpinteria Community Vaccination events. Future vaccine opportunities throughout Santa Barbara County can be found at publichealthsbc. org/vaccine. For the latest updates on Covid-19 vaccination clinics in Carpinteria, follow the city of Carpinteria on Facebook or visit carpinteriahub.com.

After receiving her second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, Maria Tafoya waits the required 15 minutes with health workers who stand by in the case of immediate side effects. Tafoya was relieved to receive the second dose of the vaccine which she hoped would allow her to have more opportunities to work cleaning houses.

Downtown mural defaced by tagging Community groups rally to clean up, raise funds for restoration

BY DEBRA HERRICK

A mural depicting the history of agriculture in the Carpinteria Valley by artist John Wullbrandt was defaced by extensive tagging on Thursday, April 22 by an unknown person. Wullbrandt completed the mural, “The Carpinteria Valley: A Growing Heritage,” in October 2017. The 10-panel painting sprawls across the side of the building located at 4962 Carpinteria Ave. and faces the former Bank of America building at Carpinteria and Linden avenues, depicting the community’s agricultural basin and its major crops. “The mural was carefully planned with an eye on sight lines and consideration to its unique location,” said Wullbrandt. “The colossal bright red flower catches one’s eye from the heart of downtown’s main intersection inviting one to view the painting of the entire Carpinteria Valley not unlike the background on our City Seal.” The landscape is cradled by crops that have historically brought prosperity to the valley, including flowers, lemons, walnuts, avocados and lima beans. The tractor, painted in the same red as the eye-catching gerbera, references Carpinteria High School’s local chapter of Future Farmers of America and is painted in “a magic realist style, almost popping out of the picture and touching the asphalt,” said Wullbrandt. From concept to public dedication, volunteers worked for two and a half years to secure city permits and funding – roughly $12,500 – to bring the mural to fruition. Local nonprofit Carpinteria Beautiful spearheaded the initiative, with the late Foster Markolf at the helm. The Marquez family, who own the building, were also indispensable in their support, according to Wullbrandt. The majority of the funding was raised by the local agricultural community and California Women for Agriculture.

Restoring the mural

The expense that restoring the mural will require is still unknown, as Wullbrandt is currently in the midst of

Last week, artist John Wullbrandt’s 10-panel mural at the intersection of Carpinteria and Linden avenues depicting the history of agriculture in the Carpinteria Valley was defaced by tagging. (To prevent further promotion of the tagger’s moniker, CVN has blocked out portions of the vandalism in the above photo.) cleaning, assessing the damage, and completing restorative painting that will return the work to its original splendor. “We have yet to determine the time and cost of what it will take to restore the damage done a few nights ago in what may have taken only minutes and a few cans of black and white spray paint by an unknown person or persons,” said Wullbrandt. On Monday, Carpinteria Beautiful president, Bryan Mootz, who heads the organization’s graffiti clean-up initiative, assisted Wullbrandt in removing the layers of black paint from the mural’s surface. Former Carpinteria Mayor Donna Jordan also helped. The mural had two layers of clearcoat applied on top of the artist’s work to protect it from inclement weather and tagging. “We got the first layer of black off using different techniques and going through a lot of rags,” said Mootz. “This is the first step of several. When the black was removed, the colors beneath were tempered and John will have to go back in and repaint those sections to balance out the colors.” However, they were not able to remove the tag’s white outlines. Extensive inpainting will likely be required for Wullbrandt to restore the painting.

“Most graffiti artists and even taggers (yes, I believe there is a difference) honor the work of artists and will not paint over a mural unless it has content that is objectionable. I wonder what the tagger’s real reason was for committing what might be a felony.”

––John Wullbrandt

“There will be much more work ahead and the owners of the property are being helpful,” said Wullbrandt. “That mural will be back to its former glory,” said Mootz. “It’s not destroyed. It’s not going anywhere. We’re bringing it back.”

Community response

Within hours of the tagging’s discovery, there were dozens of comments on social media expressing dismay and outrage. “After having some time now to think things through, I am wondering what the tagger had to say if anything,” said Wullbrandt. “Most graffiti artists and even taggers (yes, I believe there is a difference) honor the work of artists and will not paint over a mural unless it has content that is objectionable. I wonder what the tagger’s real reason was for committing what might be a felony. I have come to the conclusion that the person or persons should be contacted and educated if possible, rather than punished. We all have something to learn here.” Advisory board chair of the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, David Powdrell, echoed Wullbrandt’s call for education. “Whatever the motivation, the defacing is painful to the community of Carpinteria…” said Powdrell. “I hope that one day the tagger can spend time with John, one-on-one, to learn the importance of art, to learn valuable techniques, and to learn what art in public places does for a community. That’s among John’s greatest attributes, in my opinion. I have seen and photographed John teaching countless teens through the years to paint murals, create shadows, optimize color, and to create magic with a paintbrush.” 

On Facebook, Carie Nelson Smith urged the community to donate to a fund to create a reward for identifying the culprit. Many others voiced a desire to support the clean-up effort with donations. To donate to Carpinteria Beautiful, mural sponsors, contact Bryan Mootz at b628pm@aol.com or visit carpinteriabeautiful.org. At City Council on Monday night, councilmembers unanimously approved an anti-graffiti award of $1,000 to anyone whose information leads to the identification of the person responsible for the vandalism.

Fencing

Some concerns have been raised – most notably by Wullbrandt – that a recently installed fence blocking access to the mural could have been a motivating factor for the tagger. The fence was installed by the former Bank of America property’s new owner, the Santa Cruz Island Foundation (SCIF). SCIF purchased the building in November 2019 to serve as SCIF’s new permanent headquarters as well as a museum, historical archive and educational center. “It is our desire this will complete a ‘cultural triangle’ in Carpinteria, embracing the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History and Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center,” representatives from SCIF told CVN in 2019. Until recently, the area in front of the mural was open space, allowing the public to view the entire mural without restriction. “In the center is the avocado, a much beloved and celebrated fruit in Carpinteria, and this is where most photos were taken until the construction fence went up only days ago,” said Wullbrandt, noting that only one other mural of the many he has painted has been defaced by tagging and it was also behind a fence. “I do not know the reason for this,” Wullbrandt said. “Possibly it is to show defiance and simply an ability to illustrate the failure of a fence?” Wullbrandt expressed worry that the problem will persist, given that the new owners plan to restrict access to the mural with a permanent four-foot fence. He also noted that there were no longer security cameras surveying the property.

Does the Bailard Housing Proposal align with the goal of the community? CVN

THE LAY OF THE LAND MIKE WONDOLOWSKI What is important to you about Carpinteria? What makes this area special? If I ask a hundred different people those questions, I would get a variety of answers: walks on the beach, the Franklin Trail, the antique shops, Chocolats du CaliBressan, the Bluffs, the Salt Marsh, the rural areas outside the city limit, Rincon Brewery, Robitaille’s, no big hotels, friendly unpretentious people, cooking your own steak at The Palms, seeing harbor seal pups, the Avocado Festival, having a four-foot tall blue heron look you in the eye as you pass it on the path at Tar Pits Park, or maybe local photographers, painters, poets and other artists finding inspiration in nearly any direction they look. These are seemingly diverse responses, but they paint a picture that is captured in one simple statement featured on page one of Carpinteria’s General Plan, the primary planning document for the city: “The goal of the community is to preserve the essential character of our small beach town, its family-oriented residential neighborhoods, its unique visual and natural resources and its open, rural surroundings while enhancing recreational, cultural and economic opportunities for our citizens.” Ultimately, this is the standard against which every planning decision is measured. What effect would a proposed project have on our town, and how does that align with our community’s goal? Recently, the Carpinteria City Council discussed a proposal to build 173 rental apartment units on seven acres at the north end of Bailard Avenue, across from Monte Vista Park. The details of the proposal are bit complicated. The land is outside the city limit, so the county of Santa Barbara is responsible for making decisions about it. The land is owned by the Carpinteria Unified School District and is under a sale option agreement with the Housing Authority of Santa Barbara County (an organization whose focus is on creating affordable housing). However, after working through some of this complexity, concerns about the proposal begin to become apparent, as they did at the April 12 City Council meeting when members of the public and City Council members expressed worries about how it would affect Carpinteria. The most glaring issue raised was the density. Current zoning for these seven acres allows only one residential unit per three acres, meaning only two units are allowed. Serious rezoning would be necessary to allow the additional 171 units. The land is currently part of a low-density buffer between the existing homes north of the freeway on the west side of Bailard and the larger agricultural operations nearby with their associated noise from equipment and workers, dust, truck traffic, etc. Related to the property having been carefully planned as a buffer, it is outside the designated Urban/Rural boundary. The entire purpose of this boundary is to discourage sprawl by containing urban development. The project will result in the destruc-

“Looking ahead, it could be the first step down the slippery slope of incremental expansion of the City boundary and resume the sprawl the City experienced up through the 1980s.”

tion of the current buffer and expansion of the Urban/Rural boundary, severely impacting a large existing Carpinteria neighborhood. Looking ahead, it could be the first step down the slippery slope of incremental expansion of the City boundary and resume the sprawl the City experienced up through the 1980s. The project does include affordable housing, but only with 41 of the 173 units, leaving the remaining 132 units as market-rate units developed by a for-profit developer. The county is suggesting that after the project is built (to county standards which are more lax than the city of Carpinteria’s standards), the property would be annexed to the city. Development Impact Fees and Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) credits – a topic for another column – would potentially be split between the county and the city, but the city would be left with the ongoing impacts and the continued obligation to service the new development in perpetuity. Let’s review this project against the goal of the community as stated in our General Plan: “…preserve the essential character of our small beach town, its family-oriented residential neighborhoods, its unique visual and natural resources…” Nope. “…and its open, rural surroundings…” Not even close! “…while enhancing recreational, cultural and economic opportunities for our citizens.” Well, the plans do include a playground, but it’s only for residents. So, again no. That’s a perfect score of ZERO for this project in meeting the goal of the community. The city could implement appropriate rezoning of land inside the existing city limit to allow affordable housing, and the in-progress General Plan update is exactly the right time to consider such changes. If you are concerned, there are steps you can take. Contact our City Council members and let them know of your concerns (carpinteriaca.gov/city-hall/ city-directory/). Also, contact our First District County Supervisor Das Williams and share your views with him (countyofsb.org/bos/home.c). I will add one more thing that makes Carpinteria special: residents who care about our community and speak up when they see it threatened. Mike Wondolowski is president of the Carpinteria Valley Association (CarpinteriaValleyAssociation.org), a local organization dedicated to maintaining the small beach town nature of our community. In his 30 years of involvement in planning issues, he has witnessed visionary successes, as well as decisions that were later widely regretted. When not stuck indoors, he can often be found enjoying Carpinteria’s treasures including kayaking and snorkeling along the coast, running or hiking on the bluffs or the Franklin Trail, or “vacationing” as a tent camper at the State Beach.

As more people in our community are vaccinated and health protocols are relaxed, the arts center will be there for the community with longer gallery hours with opening receptions, in-person classes, inperson summer camps and eventually some community events in the courtyard.

––Alan Koch

Times have changed

Growing up in Carpinteria during the 1950s meant that during the summer break you would go to work in the fields when you turned 15 years of age. Most of us boys would go out and work picking lemons, tomatoes or other seasonal fruit that is so abundant in our valley. Working in the fields was extremely difficult with very low pay. Most of the girls would go work at the packing houses down by the railroad tracks. My sister, Teddy, went to work at a local laundry with a starting wage of 75 cents an hour. We were instilled with a work ethic that is still with us today. However, I don’t think we compare at all with what I see today. As I walk around town, I can’t help but notice that the people doing the fundamental work that keeps our economy moving are mainly of Latin descent. They are the people building our freeways, the roofers, gardeners, the crew at Risdon’s carwash, the people working in the fields who provide food for our tables, the waiters, cleaners and cooks at our restaurants, the housekeepers… the list goes on and on. I fervently hope that we all take notice of these incredibly industrious people who will be the foundation for Presidents Biden’s rebuilding of America, and give them the respect and dignity they so rightly deserve.

Come together to support the arts center

Throughout 2020, the overall focus for the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center had been to be there for the community by providing a virtual arts center under the theme of “Together ApART.” So far, 2021 is showing signs of hope that the arts center can start to transition back to activities in the gallery and courtyard under the theme of “Together Again.” As more people in our community are vaccinated and health protocols are relaxed, the arts center will be there for the community with longer gallery hours with opening receptions, in-person classes, in-person summer camps and eventually some community events in the courtyard. The arts center has been there for the community over the past year but cannot continue without the support of the community. The “Together Again” campaign will be an integrated collection of activities over an eight-week period that includes direct mailing to 2,500 community members, a gallery auction, the annual Artists Studio Tour online with a gallery exhibit, a Mother’s Day craft class, online videos and finally the teen mural project. Please take this opportunity to support your arts center during the “Together Again” appeal. There are a number of ways one can give, including buying art and jewelry displayed in the gallery; going to the website to sponsor a summer camper or the teen mural; buying a gift certificate for a class; or giving a general donation on the website at CarpinteriaArtsCenter.org. I cannot wait until the community celebrates being “Together Again” at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center!

CITY BEAT City hits expiration date in good faith negotiations with Sheriff’s Office

Coastal View News • Tel: (805) 684-4428

BY EVELYN SPENCE City Manager Dave Durflinger provided an update to Carpinteria City Council about the monetary contract dispute with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office during the council’s April 26 meeting, confirming that the good faith negotiations period expired with no resolution reached. According to documents submitted during the meeting, the cities with a monetary dispute with the Sheriff’s Office – Carpinteria, Goleta, Solvang and Buellton – held good faith negotiations sessions on both March 30 and April 15. The Sheriff’s Office had previously asked for a 45-day extension period on the good faith negotiations period; however, the four cities were unable to reach an agreement with the Sheriff’s Office before that period expired on April 26. “There’s a process in our contract that stipulates how cost increases are to be handled in a collaborative fashion, and the city believes – in fact all four of the cities that contract for law enforcement services with the Sheriff’s Office – agree that that process was not followed,” Durflinger said. He said he, alongside city legal counsel Jena Shoaf Acos, have been engaging in negotiations with the Sheriff’s Office. He

said they have made progress but “aren’t there yet.” “We’re still hopeful that we can reach a resolution and bring this to conclusion and not have to use a mediator. But it’s still possible we’ll go forward with mediation,” he said. Acos agreed and said she thinks it’s likely the four cities will now move forward with a formal mediation process. “The first step in that process would be to jointly agree on a mediator (...) It is a necessary step before any party to the agreement would (initiate) litigation or file a lawsuit,” Shoaf Acos said. She clarified that the cost of the mediation would be split amongst the four cities.

City offers $1000 anti-graffiti award for information on mural vandalism

The council unanimously modified the agenda to introduce an urgent resolution relating to the vandalism of John Wullbrandt’s mural, before approving an anti-graffiti award of $1,000 to anyone whose information leads to the identification of the person responsible for the vandalism.

Lt. Butch Arnoldi said the Sherrif’s Office believes the tagging was not done by a resident of Santa Barbara County. He said the Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating the vandalism and is checking in with local businesses to see if the vandalism was caught on video.

He noted that the previous goal of a May 10 public meeting to discuss the inn is now “unlikely” but said staff will set a future meeting date soon.

Durflinger stated that city staff will begin identifying prospective sites for a Carpinteria Safe Parking Program, run by New Beginnings, to allow people to park and sleep in their cars. The council voted to move forward with identifying such sites at its March 22 meeting. Durflinger said city staff will bring back the matter to the council once the staff have finished identifying potential sites. “It might take upwards of a couple of months to do that,” he said.

The council approved two new contracts during its April 26 meeting. The first, a construction contract with VSS International for the 2021 Pavement Maintenance Project, will cost $333,333, according to documents presented during the meeting. The council voted to move $422,000 from the Measure X fund for the project, which includes an additional $54,850 for inspection services. The work will involve fixing cracks, replacing pavement and microsurfacing on several streets within Carpinteria. The second, a consultant services agreement with RPM Design Group for the city’s downtown design overlay project, will cost $177,783. The council voted for city staff to move forward with an agreement and also approved a transfer of $20,000 from the Measure X fund for the project. The project will “implement objective design standards and development procedures into the City’s Zoning Code,” according to documents submitted during the meeting.

Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs have created a bilingual workbook for students to independently learn about the Bluffs and celebrate Earth Day with their families.

Students celebrate Katie Roberts Bluffs Day with Earth Day projects

This year’s Katie Roberts Bluffs Day sponsored by Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs was celebrated as a virtual fieldtrip to the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve for Earth Day. Third grade students in Carpinteria and Summerland received materials for a virtual field trip that were created under the leadership of retired teacher and Citizen’s board member Marty Selfridge along with 20 volunteers. The workbook included a 50-page Bluffs Day Journal designed for hands-on Earth Day projects.     The journals include a story map,

history of the Bluffs, a guide to common plants, animals and birds, as well as stories, games and instructions for projects. Written in English and Spanish, journals were delivered to schools along with all the supplies needed to complete the projects.  Students and teachers can also find a digital version of the Bluffs Day journal as well as an interactive version of the story map, and three short related films online at carpinteriabluffs.org/education.  “We hope students and their families

will visit the Bluffs,” Selfridge said. “By using the educational materials we now have on our website, they can take their own field trip to the Carpinteria Bluffs.” This annual field trip day at the Bluffs is named for the late Katie Roberts, who worked to save the Bluffs and created this annual event in 2006 to celebrate Earth Day. This year’s Bluffs Day costs were underwritten by the generous donations of friends and family of Steve Calvin, in his honor and in memory of his love for the Carpinteria Bluffs.

The participating Carpinteria artists include Taiana Giefer, Meredith Brooks Abbott, Baret Boisson, Michael Haber, Jessica June Avrutin, Whitney Hansen and Whitney Brooks Abbott. Funds raised from the exhibition will support Lotusland’s sustainability programs which promote and teach individuals, groups and gardeners about the best methods and practices in horticulture, environmental responsibility and stewardship. “In response to the pandemic, and the shortfalls we experienced as a result, Carpinteria artist Taiana Giefer we needed to rethink fundraisers,” said created a topographic felt map of Rebecca Anderson, executive director at Lotusland titled “Seed No. 37 J Lotusland. “With a desire to connect the Blair’s Map.” community to our mission, we dreamed up this concept for a new benefit event with participating artists from our region.

The Apiary pours fruit, flowers and dreams into every glass CVN

MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N Rachna and Nole Cossart opened the Apiary in 2015, but they had been working toward their vision for clean and locally-sourced alcohol for a while before the Carpinteria Avenue cidery and meadery opened its doors. The Cossart’s goal to create healthier drinks that used conscious ingredients from the land led them to think about the natural landscape. Santa Barbara County’s abundant chaparral-laced mountains inspired Rachna and Nole to create a haven for lovers of ciders, meads and jun kombuchas made from honey and apples sourced locally from organic Southern California farms. Nole and Rachna were both raised in the local area – Nole on the West Side in Santa Barbara and Rachna close to Gaviota. Rachna went to school for food wellness and holistic nutrition; while Nole, who grew up on the ocean, was very close to pursuing a career in professional surfing. Both Nole and Rachna had quiet ambitions to own a business one day. “When we met, the choice to open the Apiary came very easily in our budding relationship,” Rachna said. Nole is the innovator behind the business. He is constantly working his hardest to improve recipes and production. Rachna, who is friendly and well spoken, manages employees – she’s also often found in the tasting room talking with guests. Together, Nole and Rachna navigate the responsibilities that come with being a small business owner while also nurturing their marriage and home life. The Apiary is known for making specialty beverages that are harder to find. The couple was determined to make their own mead, which is made from fermented honey, water and yeast, lighter and more drinkable than how it is usually made. That’s why all of their meads are served cold, carbonated and with some herb, flower or seasonal fruit infused. “We try to reflect our climate in Santa Barbara and Carpinteria within our refreshing drinks,” Rachna said. Jun Kombucha is the naturally probi-

“We want our products to be a reflection of our environment and also spark curiosity of what else can be created,” said Rachna Cossart, who founded the Apiary with her husband Nole.

The Apiary is a family-owned cidery and meadery located on the west end of Carpinteria Avenue, next-door to brewLAB. otic fermented beverage that the Apiary makes with honey, green tea and scoby. To distinguish themselves from the kombucha craze that was just starting to make its way into the alcohol market, Rachna and Nole decided to use local honey and green tea instead of white sugar. “It set us apart and honors our native foothills and food systems,” they noted. Made from apples, hard cider found its way into the Apiary later than some of the other drinks. The Cossarts had stumbled

upon local, organic apples grown in the Cuyama Valley. “Guests who have been to the tasting room will find that our array of honey and apple ferments mirror the natural landscape of Santa Barbara County and all it has to offer,” Rachna said. The Apiary’s small batches are still somewhat experimental. Pre-Covid, drinks were all available on tap in their small tasting room which allowed them to monitor the product going out and gave the Cossarts and their bartenders the opportunity to educate customers on what they were drinking and how to find a flavor that best suits them. “That’s how we liked it,” Rachna said. “Fresh and straight from fermentation to the fridge, and into people’s glasses.” The Apiary was forced to innovate quickly when the pandemic hit, rethinking how their product was made available when the tasting room was closed. This meant shipping throughout California, shelf stability and lots and lots of packaging. Through effort and quick-thinking, they were able to adapt to a whole new way of designing their product for bottles. They were also able to open a beautiful and inviting patio into the alleyway of the Carpinteria business park, alongside their neighbors brewLAB. “It has been one of the best silver linings!” Rachna

said. “Who doesn’t want to sit outside in Carpinteria and enjoy a cold beverage in the sun by the beach?” The Cossarts expressed their gratitude for the community support that has gotten them through the toughest months of the pandemic. “We love seeing Carpinteria regulars. Also all of the many tourists that come to visit Carpinteria State Beach for camping each year will come back and back again to the tasting room,” Rachna said. “The Santa Barbara and Carpinteria food and beverage scene is always flourishing with new ideas and concepts. It’s quite an incredible community to be a part of. We definitely felt supported and surrounded by fellow artisans and dreamers when we were getting started, and still do! We want our products to be a reflection of our environment and also spark curiosity of what else can be created.” The Apiary tasting room is now open for outdoor, patio seating at 4191 Carpinteria Ave. For more information, visit drinkapiary.com.

FIELD NOTES

EXPLORING THE VALLEY’S WILD AND CULTIVATED SPACES

ALENA STEEN I write this article as a vast swarm of honey bees swirls about the community garden searching for a new home, one of the sure signs of spring in Carpinteria. The native ceanothus, elderberry, California poppies and phacelia have been blooming for weeks already, blossoms coated in both European honey bees and native pollinators such as solitary bumble bees, delicate-winged wasps and bottle-green flies. Creating a wild edge around the more cultivated spaces of garden members’ raised beds and vegetable gardens ensures there are plenty of insects to fulfill the demanding task of pollinating the spring-blooming flowers which become summer harvests of fruits and vegetables. Spring is for planting, and if you are hoping to start a new garden or reawaken last year’s Covid-inspired veggie patch, now is the time! As anyone who has read this column in the past knows, I am a huge fan of adding loads of high-quality

Spring is the perfect time to plant strawberries for summer fruit. Freshly harvested strawberries from your own backyard are the sweetest, and so easy to grow as long as you have a spot with rich soil, full sun and consistent water.

aren’t able to make your own compost, I recommend investing in a high-quality worm compost (vermicompost), which is generally richer and more alive than store-bought bags of compost. One of my favorite garden stores, Island Seed and Feed in Goleta, carries locally-made worm compost which is the best amendment money can buy. Due to our low rainfall this winter, it’s more important than ever to be water-wise in your garden. Rich, healthy soils are able to store water more readily than compacted or nutrient-depleted soils. Adding compost to your soil and then covering the soil surface with four inches of leaf mulch or wood chips allows your soil to retain water much longer, thus reducing your water needs. Incorporating native plants into your landscape is another way to conserve water—there are so may gorgeous annual and perennial California natives to choose from which will provide four seasons of beauty for you and food and shelter for local birds and insects. My favorite sources for native plants are the year-round plant sale at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden and Yes Yes Nursery, a local nursery which delivers plants locally once a month from Santa Ynez. Once you’ve established your growing season’s healthy soil, it’s time to get planting. Cooler spring temperatures are the perfect climate for leafy greens such as kale, lettuce, spinach, arugula, chard and bok choy and roasting veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, celery root and fennel. Root veggies such as beets, carrots, turnips and radishes and culinary herbs such as cilantro, parsley and dill are also easy to grow year-round in our cool coastal climate. While many folks are eager to get summer veggies in the ground this time of year, they demand a little extra care and preparation. Summer crops such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, squash, cucumbers and basil love long, hot days

and can be challenging to keep happy if our early summer remains cool and foggy. I’ve had the best results from delaying the planting of summer veggies until mid-May, so they will begin to bear fruit in the consistently warmer and drier months of August and September. If you can’t wait that long and are eager to get your summer garden started right now, there’s a few things you can do to ensure your best chance of success. Healthy soil and mulch support your summer veggies’ immune system, which will protect them from some of the most common cool summer weather plant diseases such as powdery mildew and blight. Make sure to never, ever water the foliage of summer veggies, since this is one of the most common ways to spread powdery mildew, which is caused by wet soil splashing onto foliage. Always use drip irrigation or a gentle stream right at the base of a plant directly watering the soil to irrigate your veggies. Variety selection is also key: choose “short season” tomatoes, which are generally more cold-tolerant and disease-resistant. Cherry and plum tomatoes do well in coastal fog, as do larger slicing varieties such as Black Krim, Pruden’s Purple and Stupice. The Carpinteria Garden Park recently hosted a Zoom lecture on building soil health for vegetable gardens with Corey Welles, Plant Healthcare Specialist at Ganna Walska Lotusland. You can watch his presentation, which is full of useful information on building soil fertility and gardening for pollinators here: vimeo. com/523925770. Happy gardening! Alena Steen is a local farmer and coordinator of the Carpinteria Garden Park, an organic community garden located at 4855 5th St., developed by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. Community members rent a plot to grow their own fresh produce. For more information visit https://carpinteriaca.gov/ parks-and-recreation/.

MOXI welcomes back guests MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation, will officially welcome back guests on Thursday, April 29 following more than a year-long closure due to the pandemic. Following CDC, state and local guidance, MOXI has implemented a variety of new procedures to once again provide a safe, engaging and fun experience where curious minds of all ages can explore, discover and play. New temporary hours at MOXI are Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All visitors, including members, are encouraged to make a reservation or purchase tickets in advance (free for members). All guests ages 2 and up must wear a face covering at all times, and no gaiters or face shields without masks will be allowed. Guests must be in groups of no more than nine, with only people from their household, in accordance with current state and CDC guidance. Guests and staff will maintain physical distance of at least six feet between one another, and guests will be asked to follow new guidance at select exhibits and observe the one-way pathways in select areas. MOXI has also implemented health and safety procedures including staff health screenings, limiting the number of visitors to 25% capacity, robust cleaning, Plexiglas barriers at front desk check-in points, indoor air quality monitoring and more. While some procedures have changed and some exhibits are temporarily closed, guests will be excited to discover that many of the museum’s most popular exhibits, including Build It. Test It. Race It., Light Patterns and Whitewater all remain open. Guests will also be able to view “CurioCity,” a miniature cardboard city, in the Interactive Media Theater. The display is the result of a community-wide collaboration in which members of the public created their own uniquely engineered and decorated cardboard structures. For those who are unable to or not yet comfortable with visiting MOXI, opportunities for at-home learning will continue to be available via the museum’s website and Facebook and Instagram pages. The latest offerings include printable activity guides for all ages, covering a variety of topics from motion to sound and light, engineering and making. The museum is also hosting a virtual spring luncheon fundraiser on May 18 and has plans to host a modified version of its MOXI@Night gala onsite at the museum on Oct. 1 and 2. Tickets, member reservations and information about all museum programs and events are available on MOXI’s website at moxi.org.

Howard students Mateo Betancourt, Ava Miller and Alissa Neuron help promote gift baskets for the school’s annual auction to benefit the school.

Howard School sets goal of $100k for auction

With a motto of “Together, we can do so much,” the Howard School 2021 Fundraiser and Virtual Auction was born. Kicking off May 3, this all-virtual event will raise funds to make necessary improvements to the nonprofit school’s new campus, including increased sanitation, perimeter security and classroom partitions. Funds raised will also help to keep tuition affordable, provide financial assistance to qualifying families and to allow the school to continue to provide quality Carden education for children. The virtual auction can be found by visiting the website 32auctions.com/thehowardschool or by following their social media @thehowardschool. The Howard School’s auction includes sought-after experiences, such as a Hawaiian vacation, surf trips, Opening Day at Del Mar, Ski-in/Ski-out in Vail and more. “Our auction preview has been well received with lots of excitement for the hotel stays and getaways and all the smaller items like wine tasting and camping packages,” said Kandie Overgaag, auction chair. “Our social media has been the best method to get the word out and viewers are ready to bid in support of The Howard School. The Howard School also has opportunities for corporate sponsors. “We enjoy including the virtual auction items as part of the fundraising efforts, but we heavily rely on Corporate Sponsorships and major gifts to hit our fundraising goals,” Overgaag said. The Howard School is Santa Barbara County’s oldest continually operating independent school. With small class sizes, the Carden classroom is organized in such a way that learning is highly individualized, meeting the unique needs of each child. Among the school’s primary goals is to promote growth of the whole child, including emotional and physical development coupled with the pursuit of academic excellence. For more information, visit thehowardschool.org or contact Anita Betancourt, office@thehowardschool.org, (805) 745-8448.

Swim wins first meet of the season against Santa Paula

The Carpinteria swim team visited the Santa Paula Cardinals for their first in-person meet of the season. With excitement brimming at the prospect of real competition, the Warriors were thrilled for the occasion. This emotion translated into many CIF consideration qualifying times throughout the boys’ and girls’ competitions. Junior Matthew Lamberti had a phenomenal meet, dropping his 100 freestyle PR down significantly from 58.6 to 53.04, securing him a victory in the 100 freestyle. He managed to swim a similar time in the 400-free relay along with an all-freshman

company of Asher Smith, Jackson Melton and Aiden Neuron for an automatic qualifying time of 3:42.99. Both Warrior teams won the meet and strive to acquire more PRs and more CIF qualifying times in the coming weeks. Coach Sergio Castaneda said he was thrilled at the speed and the potential of the team. “I have been gifted a strong, committed and tightly knit group that strives to excel. I am excited for what the future holds for the young crew and will continue to hope for CIF this year,” Castaneda said.

Track and Field sweeps Hueneme

The Carpinteria Track and Field team swept the Hueneme Vikings on Thursday, April 22 to open Citrus Coast League play for the Warriors. The boys’ and girls’ squads took the meet 81-53 and 76-35, respectively. Vincent Rinaldi won his specialty again, taking first place in the 100 and 200-meter dashes with times of 11.03 and 22.15. Tristan Cravens was the Warriors’ other double winner. He won both hurdle races, running a time of 19.40 in 110-meter highs and 47.63 in the 300-meter intermediates. Esai Vega won a tightly-contested discus competition. The senior threw a PR of 139-7 to defeat Randy Jacob of Hueneme by 1 foot 2 inches. Vega made a nice comeback after fouling his first two throws. Emma Holmstrom was one of two double winners for the girls. Holmstrom set a PR of 19.74 to win the 100-meter hurdles and was the upset winner in the long jump with a PR of 15-1.75. Alex Zapata was the other. She won the 400 meters with a time of 1:06:36 and the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 56.13. Fatima Cervantes and Ainslee Alexander also turned in strong performances. Cervantes cleared 4-10 in the high jump for the fifth time this season to win the event, while Alexander set a seasonal record of 33-0 to win the triple jump.

Baseball defeats Fillmore, Villanova

The Warrior baseball team picked up wins against Fillmore and Villanova this past week, first defeating the Filmore Flashes 9-5 on the road on Tuesday, April 20. In this Citrus Coast League matchup, the Warriors used a combination of timely hitting, heady base running and a solid pitching effort by senior righty Miles Souza to scoot past the Flashes. The Warriors scored in each of the first three innings to lead 5-1 but the Flashes rallied to make it 5-4. The Warriors added four important insurance runs in the sixth inning as they held the Fillmore offense scoreless over the final three frames. Hunter Garcia, Souza, and Beto Martinez had two hits apiece, and eight different Warriors scored runs. Souza went 6 2/3 and surrendered three earned runs on three hits, three walks and seven strikeouts. Senior right-hander Isaac Castillo closed the game when left fielder Matt Muñoz threw out a base runner attempting to advance to third base on a hit. “In order to win at Fillmore, a team must be good and fortunate at the same time. Our battery of Souza and Nieves set the tone and prevented the rough terrain and other challenges from getting to us,” said coach Pat Cooney. “The entire roster contributed to the win in different ways.” Next up for the Warriors was an at-home matchup against Villanova on Saturday, April 24. Carpinteria again walked away with the win, this time defeating the Wildcats 7-4 in a rare non-league game. The Warriors never trailed as they tallied two runs in the first inning, two in the third inning and added important insurance runs in the fourth and sixth innings. The Wildcats seemed to steal some momentum as they made the score 5-4 in the fifth after some unusual plays, but the Warriors hung zeros in the sixth and seventh to nail it down.   Castillo started for the Warriors and earned the win as he limited the damage to just two runs over four innings. Erich Goebel relieved and the Warriors maintained a slim margin when he gave way to closer Miles Souza who dodged a defensive miscue to pick up the save. Leadoff batter Luke Lounsbury had two of the Warriors’ seven hits and he scored three times. Goebel scored two runs and Souza notched three RBI, including a sixth-inning double that plated two Warriors. Freshman Talon Trumble was 1-for-1 with a sacrifice bunt and a run scored. “First of all, it was only a few weeks ago that we thought there might not be any high school baseball this season, much less a Saturday afternoon game at Calderwood Field,” Cooney said. “Villanova is a good team and it was a good high school game so the experience was positive. It may sound repetitive but the group played well as a whole. People are hungry for ways to contribute.”

Girls basketball shows promise despite tough losses to open season

The Carpinteria girls basketball team played their first game of this year’s shortened season on Tuesday, April 20, falling 64-30 to Nordhoff in Citrus Coast League action. “We are grateful for the opportunity to play again in the current circumstances,” said coach Henry Gonzales, “with a mixed group of varsity and JV players and a new system to put forth.” The Warriors gave it an excellent effort and focus but came up short. Highlights of the game included senior Jasmine Gilbert’s 15 points and Hanna Hernandez’s five points and six steals. Together, Gilbert and Hernandez led the Warrior attack. Just two days later on April 22, the Warriors traveled to Santa Paula and came up short against the Cardinals 70-22. Carpinteria started off well against the aggressive Cardinals in the first period. Jasmine Gilbert and Hannia Hernandez kept the team close at 7-11 early on. However, turnovers plagued the Warriors throughout and they were not able to keep pace. “We are gaining valuable experience in our efforts which will pay off down the road,” Gonzales said. Gilbert and Hernandez led the attack once more with 12 points and 9 points, respectively. On Saturday, April 24, the Warriors took on the Bishop Diego Cardinals at home, dropping another hard-fought game 73-35. The Lady Warriors kept pace with a strong Cardinals team in the first and second periods. The first period saw the Warriors hustling and fighting for every scoring opportunity on offense and battling on defense. Hannia Hernandez led the first period offensive attack with 7 points. The Warriors were also productive on the defensive end, making the Cardinals earn every point. The first period ended at 16-11 for Bishop Diego, but the Warriors felt good about their competitive level going into the second period. 

Silke Leonard reaches for a running backhand. “The second period was similar to the first in that we competed at a high level,” Gonzales said. “On the offensive end in the second period, Jasmine Gilbert led us with 7 points.” The first half ended at 30-18 for Bishop Diego. “The second half got away from us and we weren’t able to sustain a high level of execution on offense or defense,” Gonzales continued. “However, our effort never wavered and we finished the game strong.” Gilbert led the team in offense for the day with 21 points, 15 of which came from five three-pointers.

Boys volleyball comes up short against Nordhoff

The Warrior boys volleyball team traveled to play the Nordhoff Rangers on an outdoor grass court at Matilija Junior High School in Ojai on April 20, falling in four sets to the Rangers. “We played well but Nordhoff played a little better as they had more fire power than us,” said coach Mickey Caughey. “We dug a ton of balls as a team for a total of 179 digs on the evening. Our defense was awesome, which kept us in a lot of long rallies.” The Warriors lost in four sets 26-24, 20-25, 15-25, 23-25. They now stand at 0-2 in league play and 0-2 overall. Gavin Lohuis had an outstanding night with seven aces, six kills, two blocks and a phenomenal 49 digs. Zach Isaac had two aces, three kills, five blocks and 22 digs. Arata Tomatsuri added three kills, five blocks and 22 digs.

Girls tennis celebrates Senior Day with a win over Hueneme

The Carpinteria girls tennis team had a solid outing against Hueneme in a Citrus Coast League matchup, defeating the Vikings 13-5 on their Senior Day. It was a special day for seniors Gabbie Smith and Eloisa Perez as the Warriors worked hard to come away with the win. In singles, Zahra Porinsh continued her undefeated season, winning her two sets without dropping a game. Silke Leonard was not far behind as she also won her two sets. Neida Garcia went 1-0. “We were aided by three default singles wins as the Vikings were short one player,” coach Charles Bryant said. In doubles, Maria Valeria Ojeda and Abbie Delwiche won both of their sets with confidence and only dropped one game in the process. The team of Cassandra Maya Prado and Natalia Perez also went 2-0. “It looked like they improved with each point as they were very tough at the end and were not relinquishing any easy points,” Bryant said. The Warriors’ last point came with their newest doubles team of Natalie Martinez and Ashley Gonzalez, who went 1-1 on the day but are building on their success with every match. Carpinteria is now 6-0 overall and 6-0 in Citrus Coast League competition. “As of now, we do not have any more matches,” Bryant noted, “But I am trying to schedule some non-league (matches) and we might even be allowed to play a very tough league rival Malibu if we are eventually allowed to.”

Girls soccer falls to Fillmore, Nordhoff

The Carpinteria girls soccer team lost a heartbreaker last Wednesday, April 21, falling to Fillmore 1-0. “Our team looked great, we were passing the ball well, playing solid defense, but we just could not put the ball in the net,” said coach Lucy Carleton. “I felt like we controlled the ball close to 90% of the time.” Ashley Verduzco played with great confidence in the midfield. Freshmen outside defenders Luna Galvan and Emma Miller were seemingly always positioned perfectly. Midfielder Sophia Mora was connecting with Zahea Hamadi, and Hamadi was coming up with brilliant crosses and shots. Juliana Ornelas and Barbara Contreras had good chances upfront but were unable to convert. “At halftime, I told the girls that despite our fine play and ball possession, our opponents were only one counterattack away from beating us, and unfortunately I was right,” Carleton continued. Keeper Ariana Lounsbury continued with much gritty work and had four saves. Just two days later on Friday, April 23, the Warriors came up short in a 7-0 loss against Nordhoff, losing a few players to a club tournament and injury. “On the whole, players looked a little tired and flat,” Carleton said. “The goalkeeper, of course, could not afford to be flat unless she was diving on the ground, and dive she did! She had 11 saves.” The game held some other bright spots. Mora had several great headers out of the box and was helpful on offense and defense, stepping in as keeper to permit Lounsbury time on the field. Lounsbury made good use of it, dribbling into the Nordhoff backline before time expired. Shania Jimenez was tenacious in the midfield, as were Iltze Alvarado and Isela Zamora. Zamora consistently refused to back down off any ball. Next up for the Warriors is a May 3 matchup against the Hueneme Vikings.

After the recent tagging of the Wullbrandt mural, SCIF president Marla Daily responded that “such senseless vandalism is deplorable.” Daily went on to state that the exterior security cameras were removed by Bank of America prior to their sale of the building in 2019 and that there was no evidence that the fence contributed to the tagging. “The (Sheriff’s deputy) investigating the incident assured us there is no relationship between the construction fencing and this latest graffiti incident,” said Daily. “The fence has curtailed ongoing issues at the site, including: presence of homeless; abuse of the temporary outhouse; partiers and trash; skate-boarders using construction materials as jumps; and vandalism of vehicles, which have had gas caps stolen and fuel siphoned. This is the fifth incident of graffiti we have experienced –on the building, on vehicles and now on the mural. It is a sad commentary on the state of affairs in Carpinteria during Covid. We continue to look forward to transforming this gateway corner into something quite extraordinary.” Wullbrandt called SCIF and their planned Channel Islands Center “thoughtful, skilled and enthusiastic members of our community with a steeped background in preserving local history,” but noted that he doesn’t look forward to their fence any more than dealing with more vandalism.

“I know there are many in this community who are furious over this tagging,” stated Councilmember Gregg Carty at the April 26 City Council meeting. “That’s the gut feeling that a lot of people in this community have, that ‘We want this person caught.’” Lt. Butch Arnoldi said the Sheriff’s Office believes the tagging was not done by a Santa Barbara County resident. He said the department is actively investigating the vandalism and is checking in with local businesses to see if the vandalism was caught on video.  Arnoldi later clarified that the punishment for the person found responsible for the vandalism would depend on whether the person arrested was a minor or an adult. He noted that if the person arrested and charged is a minor, the parents could be found financially responsible for fixing up the mural. In response to a question from Councilmember Natalia Alarcon about whether the vandalism was related to gang activity, Arnoldi stated, “We checked our history, and that is a new moniker (on the mural). We don’t believe it is any local person or even anyone from Santa Barbara County. Right now, we believe it was an unfortunate incident where someone passing through decided to select that (mural to vandalize) … But right now, it doesn’t appear to be any type of retaliation; it doesn’t even appear to be anyone local that did it. That moniker is totally new, it’s not in any of our archives. But again, it is being actively investigated by your community resource deputy.”
