Chevron Inc. supports CHS science program

CVN REPORT

On May 6, the Chevron oil company donated $32,000 to the Carpinteria High School science department via the Carpinteria Education Foundation for the purchase of new lab equipment including digital microscopes, a spectrophotometer, digital scales and hot plates. Although state of the art Gen 7 buildings were installed at CHS for a new science wing earlier in the year, much of the school’s lab equipment is old, outdated, broken or non-existent, reported Mandi de Witte, Science Department Chair and 2019 County Teacher of the Year. “With this money, we can outfit these beautiful new facilities with top of the line equipment to provide our students with the handson labs and experiments that will enrich their education, get them excited about science and prepare them for careers and college majors in science.” added de Witte, who teaches AP Biology and Honors Biology. Chevron’s public affairs representative Sara Dearman said her company is “committed to investing in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education by providing students and teachers with the tools and access to resources they need to be the innovators of the future.” Dearman also said “We are pleased to support Carpinteria High School’s purchase of equipment for its new science labs, and are honored to partner with the Carpinteria Education Foundation and community to make this happen.” Casey Balch, board president of CEF, also said, “We are thrilled to have Chevron join us as a supporter of education in Carpinteria.

Under the microscope

Cannabis farming reveals hidden world of bugs

CVN REPORT

Aphids wreak havoc on gardens all over the world by gnawing holes in leaves and ruining crops. In cannabis farming, there’s one predaceous insect that slays them in a way that conjures images of the movie “Alien.” A parasitoid (aphidius colemani) lays its eggs inside the bodies of aphids. When they hatch, the parasitoid ruptures the aphid, killing it on the spot, and the new babies begin a life cycle that involves seeking and destroying aphids as part of its reproductive process. This scenario plays out time and again under the cannabis canopies at greenhouse farms throughout Carpinteria Valley. Not all beneficial insects go about their work in as graphic a fashion as the parasitoid, but the millions of beneficial insects applied to the plants serve as the front lines on an endless microscopic battlefield. Some beneficial insects like Swirskii, spend their lives eating the insects who eat the plants. “Swirskii are the star player,” said Ivan Van Wingerden, owner of Coastal Blooms. “As a generalist predator, they are able to feed on different pests, which makes them very useful in a full biological program.” Strict testing on cannabis to the level of parts per billion mandated by the state makes it next to impossible to apply pesticides to the crop. Cannabis farming has become ground zero for pest management using only beneficial insects. At Coastal Blooms on Foothill Road, the weekly expense for beneficials— the good bugs who eat the bad ones—runs about $12,000, according to Van Wingerden. “Using beneficials isn’t new to me or our farm,” Van Wingerden said. “We incorporated them in the Integrated Pest Management plan we had for gerberas, but with cannabis it’s 100 percent beneficials, so we’re constantly monitoring bug populations.” According to Cannabis Association for Responsible Producers, or CARP Growers, greenhouses converting space to cannabis have to be completely scrubbed for historical pesticide use. “We had to go to great lengths cleaning up all of these toxic residues from noncannabis crops,” said Anthony Staal, who sits on the CARP Growers board. “From the ceiling glass to the soil we had to scrub down the whole greenhouse, remove all the old fixtures and apply new ground covers.” Companies like BioBest, Koppert and

BioLine, producers of beneficial insects, are enjoying a whole new market brought upon by California’s strict regulations on cannabis. “It’s really cutting-edge,” said Harman Gilbert, Technical Sales Manager for BioBest. “Cannabis farming in California is leading the world in the use of beneficials. Of course, our company enjoys it for the boost to the bottom line, but we also see it as a potential game changer. By applying strictly beneficials on this scale, we are expanding pest control possibilities, reducing the uglier chemicals out there, and hopefully creating a model for cleaner agriculture across the board.” Gilbert explained that it’s not as simple as throwing a bunch of insects into the mix that will eliminate harmful pests. There has to be a balance that keeps both populations in check. If the population of crop-damaging insects gets too high, then the plants suffer. If it’s too low, then beneficial insects lose their food source and die off, which will lead to a spike in the bad bug population. “The insects, both good and bad, are present on the plants all the time,” Van Wingerden said. “Monitoring and managing bugs, many of which cannot be seen with the naked eye, is a daily pursuit with constant learning and adjusting. We don’t have the option of nuking them with some pesticide and being done with it.” Companies like BioBest have varied delivery systems for applying beneficial insects. Living beneficial insects can

hung on the plants and beneficial insects emerge from the pouch over time to seek out their prey. In some areas of the state BioBest applies beneficial insects to row crops using drones.

Lady bugs are darlings of gardens around the world as natural predators to aphids, mites and larvae.

Support our local avocado growers

Where’s the California Avocado Commission? Are they going to just stand by while the marijuana industry muscles its way into the Carpinteria Valley and intimidates avocado growers and their livelihood? These marijuana growers are only in it to make a profit before the federal government steps in. The fox is in the hen house, it’s time to fight back. Most of these avocado groves have been passed down from family to family for generations—the Bailards, Blisses, Browns and Delwiches, to name a few. I would suggest that we Carpinterians write to our federal attorney general and get him to start enforcing the federal law against marijuana. The marijuana growing problem will not just be our problem, but statewide. I suspect pretty soon pot growers will say that whatever is sprayed on strawberries or any other type of fruit or vegetable is going to harm their federally-illegal operation. Wake up, Board of Supervisors, especially you, Das Williams. The avocado growers do vote. Support our local avocado growers.

Jay Inslee, focused on climate crisis

The best choice for president in 2020 may be one of the lesser known candidates, Jay Inslee, governor of Washington State. Before moving to Carpinteria, we had over 20 years of “Jay Watching” from our Seattle home. We learned that he has been a remarkably approachable, empathetic, decent and hard-working person— rare qualities in an elected official. His innate intelligence, and his style of quietly 84-4428working behind the scenes, consistently leads to innovative solutions to complex problems. We encourage you to look up his record as governor of Washington, including job creation and to compare this record to other candidates. Jay made the bold decision to focus his presidential campaign on the climate crisis—which is appropriate given the eried magnitude of the threat. Indeed, Jay is r feelone of the only presidential candidates eshed who understands that the climate crisis year is the major challenge facing us and that by, a it must be addressed now. The world is ough rapidly losing a million species, sea levposter els are rising, and weather has become nt the extreme, all in response to our warming st s 31 the planet by burning fossil fuels. We are the last generation of people who will utive have the opportunity to avoid the worstmany case scenarios of the climate crisis. Jay n conInslee is the only candidate with a proven pport real-world track record of taking steps to olors reduce the use and impact of fossil fuels. aves’ y Car-

Elections have consequences—history will not be kind to us if we do not elect leaders who will respond to the climate crisis. Jay Inslee may have been overlooked by mainstream media due to his being “somewhere around Canada,” i.e. Washington State. However, if you grasp the magnitude of the impending climate crisis, we believe you would want Jay Inslee as president. Choose wisely.

Volunteer driver Terry Moore gives a lift to a HELP of Carpinteria rider in 2018. Each year, HELP gives rides to over 600 non-driving Carpinterians.

HELP expands services, offers trips to SB and Ventura HELP of Carpinteria recently announced that they have expanded their services to provide roundtrip transportation from Carpinteria to Santa Barbara and Ventura. Rides in the new routes are available on Wednesdays and Fridays and can be used for anything from medical appointments to shopping. Santa Barbara rides are $10 and trips to Ventura are $15. For those who live in the unincorporated areas of Carpinteria, $5 will be added to the above costs. HELP is also now offering last-minute rides. Last-minute rides to Santa Barbara that are not for a medical appointment can be scheduled within 24 hours of the day the ride is to be scheduled. Last-minute rides will be scheduled on a first-come, firstserved basis. HELP is an all-volunteer organization providing door-to-door transportation to the non-driving members of our community. That includes those that are temporarily unable to drive and those who do not wish to drive outside of Carpinteria. Dispatchers are on duty from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. HELP is always looking for volunteers for driver or dispatcher positions. To schedule a ride or to sign up to volunteer, contact (805) 684-0065.

High Pup Count

Most are too large to count— there have been no recent births.

Natural History Notes

The harbor seals have been a part of Carpinteria culture for centuries, but with increasing human presence please consider becoming a Sealwatch volunteer next season. Occasionally shifts go uncovered as happened last Saturday. A visitor did his best to turn back an adult male and two teens, but they continued into the sanctuary. The before and after pictures taken by the visitor tell the story. Please help us respect their home turf by volunteering.

Disturbances Visitors

There was a large, loud truck in the parking lot, a boat anchored off the rocks and beach walkers who caused seals to flee. Two helicopters startled the seals, but they did not flush.

Late season rain kept many visitors away. A large school group took a train from Simi Valley and a large local business brought a group of visitors. Sealwatchers recorded 640 people in the overlook, including tourists from Germany, Mexico, France, Canada, Italy, Israel, New York, Arizona, Colorado, Minnesota, Alaska, Kentucky, Connecticut, South Dakota, Michigan, Illinois, Arkansas, Ohio, Texas, Hawaii, Rhode Island and Indiana.

More Info

The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. Volunteers needed. Call (805) 684-2247 or email carpsealwatch@gmail. com. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.

Commercial sprayers pull out of cannabis deal Local avocado growers say they are left with no good options this spring

By Melinda Burns The Oxnard pest control companies that spray avocados in the Carpinteria Valley have pulled out of a proposed agreement with cannabis greenhouse operators, saying they can’t risk contaminating the marijuana crop. Under the deal, cannabis growers in the valley would have agreed not to sue the commercial sprayers during the weeks they normally spray in the spring. The companies would have been able to use pesticides that works well on avocados but are on the state’s “red list” as contaminants for cannabis. “We’re all disappointed, but we’re just not going to do it,” said Rob Scherzinger, the founder and manager of Aspen Helicopters, Inc., one of four Oxnard pest control companies that work in the Carpinteria Valley. “It’s just a snake-in-thegrass that will bite us one of these days. It’s a potential loss we can’t afford.” Graham Farrar, president of the Cannabis Association for Responsible Producers, or CARP Growers, said all 27 cannabis growers in the valley had been willing to sign an agreement and cooperate with the commercial sprayers. No commercial cannabis in Carpinteria has tested positive for pesticide “drift” from avocado orchards since testing began three years ago, he said. The whole dispute started when the cannabis growers gave the commercial sprayers their phone numbers earlier this spring and asked to be notified when spraying began, so that they could close their greenhouse vents, Farrar said. Members of CARP Growers use beneficial insects, not pesticides, on cannabis. “There’s no grower that’s ever threatened to sue an applicator or an avocado guy,” Farrar said. “No cannabis growers got mad or tried to push anybody out. We were just trying to be good neighbors.” But the standoff has upended business as usual for Carpinteria avocado growers. They say they will be forced to revert to an organic pesticide they last used 25 years ago, one that is on the state’s “green list” as compatible with cannabis but is not very effective on avocados. If there is an insect infestation in the orchards this spring, they say, they could wind up next year with scarred fruit that resembles Russet potatoes and sells for half the market price. “So, marijuana growers will make millions and I will lose up to half the value of my crop,” said Sharyne Merritt, who owns 13 acres of organic avocados near Cate School on Casitas Pass Road. “Doesn’t seem fair to me.”

A pilot for Oxnard pest control company Aspen Helicopters flies over an avocado farm in Carpinteria Valley. adjacent properties. If even one part per billion of an insecticide on the “red list” is found in a batch of dried marijuana, the entire batch has to be destroyed. Scherzinger said attorneys have advised the commercial sprayers that they cannot be “held harmless” if they break the law. “It’s happened too quick for us to react,” he said. “We’re afraid of it this year.” Scherzinger said Aspen would start spraying Carpinteria avocado orchards this week with Veratran, an organic, plant-based insecticide that is on the “green list” for cannabis. Years ago, when he was using it, Scherzinger said, he would get calls from frustrated growers asking, “Did you put anything in the tank?” Veratran doesn’t work well in the overcast weather known locally as “May Gray” and “June Gloom,” the growers say. “It’s going to have to be sprayed three or four times, so it will cost three or four times as much, and it’s minimally effective,” Merritt said. “But I have no choice.” “I voted for Proposition 64,” she said, referring to the 2016 ballot initiative that legalized marijuana in California. “But I did not vote for this. I did not vote to be put out of business.” Merritt, who serves on the county’s Agricultural Advisory Committee, is also concerned about her land on Santa Rosa Road in the Santa Ynez Valley, where a tenant farmer is growing row crops. Three of Merritt’s neighbors have

“It’s happened too quick”

The avocado industry in the Carpinteria Valley is 70 years old and operates on 2,200 acres. Cannabis has been grown in the valley for about five years; the county has said it will limit the crop to 186 acres. State law prohibits pesticide “drift” on

applied for permits to grow cannabis in “hoop houses,” the tunnel-like structures of white plastic that are often used for growing berries. “This isn’t only about avocados,” Merritt said. “Olives, walnuts, grapes and vegetables all have pests that farmers treat, even organic farmers.”

“We’re all really close”

County Supervisor Das Williams, who lives in Carpinteria, had urged the cannabis growers to come to an agreement with the commercial sprayers. “I’m not sure what more they can do,” he said this week. “The cannabis folks have bent over backwards and the lawyers are mucking it up. Living in Carpinteria, we’re all really close. We all have our kids in the same schools, recreate on the same beaches and go to the same events. If it was just up to Carpinteria, we would have already figured it out.” Scott Van Der Kar, who grows avocados, lemons and cherimoyas on 50 acres in the Carpinteria foothills, said the high price of cannabis puts the crop “in an entirely different realm,” from, say, daisies or lettuce next door. A pound of marijuana sells for up to $800; a contaminated 50-pound batch would represent a loss of

about $40,000. Van Der Kar is worried that not only avocados but also lemons may be affected by the pesticide restrictions on cannabis. He sprays his lemon orchards four times yearly to fend off the Asian citrus psyllid, a pest that destroyed half the citrus industry in Florida and made its way to California in 2008. “With the avocados, we’re just talking about fruit damage,” Van Der Kar said. “With the lemons, we’re talking about losing the fruit tree … Why am I bearing the cost and the negative impacts of this new neighbor? What do we get out of this?” In Ventura County, where 90,000 acres are in row crops, lemons and avocados, some farmers are beginning to grow hemp, a variety of cannabis that can be used for medicinal oils. Hemp is worth much less than marijuana—about $60,000 per acre vs. millions of dollars per acre— but the potential problems of pesticide contamination are the same, said Andy Calderwood, the Ventura County deputy Agricultural Commissioner. “It will be a concern for surrounding growers,” he said.

“It’s going to be a busy summer,” says architect, as board debates Measure U spending

By William armshaW

At their May 14 meeting, board members of the Carpinteria Unified School District, joined by newly-appointed trustee Michelle Robertson, unanimously approved changes in Measure U spending plans for the upcoming 2019-20 school year. Trustees voted to allocate some $10 million in contingency and escalation funds to compensate for higher-thanexpected increases in construction costs, while deferring $31 million in spending pending state funding. Board members also heard from Aliso Elementary principal Michelle Fox, and a team of student reporters, on the school’s thriving diversity programs. CUSD Facilities Coordinator Cindy Abbott presented the board with an update on infrastructure improvements in the district, as well as more sobering news on the unexpected escalation of construction costs. A combination of a hot economic climate and a shortage of qualified contractors has led to higher construction costs, said Abbott, as she detailed the district’s plans to shift spending and defer some projects. Abbott and the board celebrated the completion of modernization projects, including new flooring, ceilings, heating and ventilation, and ADAcompliant pathways, at Carpinteria High and Carpinteria Middle schools. Abbott proudly announced that the middle school has replaced all modulars with new Gen 7 classrooms, and that improvements at Aliso and Canalino Family schools will continue over the summer. Architect Joe Wilcox, with Kruger Bensen Ziemer, told the board “it’s going to be a busy summer” as he highlighted project plans for CHS. Deferred projects include the high school

Rigby praised the students and faculty of CHS for the near doubling in Golden State Seal Merit Diploma recipients this year, which Sheaffer called an “indication of how many great things are happening in this district.” Aliso principal Michelle Fox introduced a video from the Media Club, in which

cub reporters presented on such topics as the Junior Russell Cup, Diversity Day and the school’s bi-literacy program. One young student, Taylor, brought down the house with his on-camera presence and the timely quip, “hopefully those students will be Spanish talkers [sic] in no time.” Fox also praised Aliso’s Family Literacy program, recounting how nearly 100 students and families participated in a session at the public library Monday, May 13.

Board members voted 5-0 to transfer some $10 million from Measure U contingency and escalation budgets to project spending, while deferring $31 million in new projects until the receipt of state match funding in 2022 and 2023. “We’re deferring quite a bit more than we theoretically need to do,” said Abbott, who clarified that out of $90 million in Measure U bonds approved by voters, a tranche of $30 million has yet to be marketed. The increase in construction costs, rising some 9 percent a year instead of the 5 percent previously projected, led to some sharp back and forth, as trustee Rogelio Delgado appealed for better planning in the future while Robertson maintained that the unexpected increase was “a good argument for maintaining a

Quilty pleasures

Community doubles down as destination town for Central Coast Quilt Shops Tour By DeBra Herrick Is Carpinteria the quilting capitol of the Central Coast? After this year’s Central Coast Quilt Shops Tour, it might be. Community groups have planned quilt-connected events throughout town, promising an oh sew fun weekend, beginning Thursday, May 30, and continuing through Sunday, June 2. It is the 15th year of the Quilt Shops Tour, an annual event co-founded by Roxanne Barbieri with several other area quilt shop owners. The first tour had 15 stops on the shop hop, but over the years, stores have closed and opened, changing the tour map but keeping the spirit. Last year, up to 800 quilters from five different states visited Roxanne’s A Wish and a Dream during the tour weekend. This year, quilters will buzz between 10 quilt shops, from Ventura to Paso Robles, with a passport dotted with fun shop names like Morro Bay’s The Cotton Ball, Ventura’s SuperBuzzy and San Luis Obispo’s Picking Daisies. Quilt shop owners decided to make the tour a town-wide event this year, encouraging visitors to slow down their pace and get to know more of the Central Coast areas that are home to quilt shops. Barbieri said Carpinteria groups like the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History and the Crafty Ladies were quick to join forces in making Carpinteria a hub of activities for quilters. The Arts Center will hold an artists’ reception on Thursday, May 30, for the opening of its juried show of fiber arts, “Stitch, Sew, Knit, Knot,” which will run through the third week of June. Throughout the weekend, the Bega collection— hundreds of quilts from the 1850s to early 1900s—will be on exhibit at the Museum of History, and on sale at the Carpinteria Community Church, along with other vintage items and gems by the Crafty Ladies. The quilts will be sold at a quarter or half of their appraised value and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Arts Center. “Quilting is so much more than your grandma’s pastime,” said Barbieri. “There are so many things people do now—pho-

You meet so many people along the way. Quilters are really just the nicest people.” The Central Coast Quilt Shops Tour kicks off on Friday, May 31, and continues through June 2. Roxanne’s, A Wish and A Dream, 919 Maple Ave., is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. To learn more about the tour, visit quiltshopsofthecentralcoast.com.

Little League Challengers show team spirit Photos by Debra herrick

The Carpinteria Valley Little League Challenger League held their annual Fans in the Stands and Buddy Appreciation Day on May 18, at El Carro Park. The stands were filled with family members and friends who had come out to support special needs players on the Challengers team. At the heart of the celebration was the Superstars game, when players from the CVLL Dodgers and Diamond Backs teams joined the Challengers on the field to serve as buddies. The buddies encourage and support the Challengers in an inclusive peer-to-peer program that facilitates friendships and learning. Each Saturday during the season, different coaches from CVLL volunteer to bring players from their team to participate. “We always look forward to Saturdays. It’s a great day,” said Staci Silva whose son Ryan has been on the team for several years. Carpinteria Unified School District special education teacher Cindy Rief who is the Challengers team manager, has been directing this program since she founded it seven years ago. “This league is my heart and soul,” said Rief. “I love the connection I have with the kids and the families and that so many of them have played for years.” This year, there are about a dozen Challengers players and in other years Rief has had as many as 20, ranging in ages from 5 to mid-20s. “It is always a new adventure with a new group of challenges and rewards. My goal is to have two teams divided by skill level and age, if possible.” For more information on CVLL Challengers League, contact Cindy Rief at cdrief@ gmail.com.

Whether it be in the pool, on the pitch, track or tennis courts, local sports enthusiasts are bound to have witnessed Carpinteria High School twin brothers Luke and Solomon Nahooikaika-Anderson competing for the Warriors. “Luke and Solomon are two of the most phenomenal Warrior student-athletes in recent history,” said Carpinteria Athletic Director Pat Cooney. “Carpinteria High School would have been lucky to have just one of them. Obviously, having two NahooikaikaAndersons has been remarkable, and their impact on their teams and classes has been incredible,” said Cooney. The dynamic duo has amassed 24 varsity letters in water polo, soccer, track and field, and tennis between them. Growing up locally, sons of a mother who played soccer and a father who surfed, the brothers first got involved in sports when they played indoor soccer at the Boys and Girls Club around the age of nine. “She (the boys’ mother, Stephanie Anderson) gave them a wonderful foundation, their work ethic, athleticism and their joy,” said their grandmother Susan Anderson who also helped raise them. By the end of eighth grade, they had taken to the water, playing water polo for a local club team, the Carpinteria Tritons. The two went go on to play varsity water polo for four years at CHS. For Luke, one of his favorite memories in the pool was the first-round victory over San Luis Obispo

in last year’s CIF playoffs. “We played them (SLO) earlier last summer in a tournament, and we lost to them. So, in the CIF we beat them, it was super cool,” said Luke, noting that their opponent also had a set of twins on the team that day. Carrying solid GPAs of 3.8 in the classroom, the pair also played in the school band up until this year, which indirectly led them to the tennis team. “Seniors in our band encouraged us to play tennis, because we were originally going to do volleyball. It was our junior year, we were going to do volleyball as well as tennis, but that didn’t work out because of the (practice) times,” explained Solomon. Playing doubles with primarily different partners, the two helped lead the Warriors to one of their finest seasons, as they went all the way to the quarterfinals before being edged by second-ranked Mater Dei, 10-8. “They could have done any sport and would have been the best at that sport,” said Carpinteria tennis coach Charles Bryant. They also played a big role in the 2017-18 soccer team’s run to the CIF championship and state sectional title. Although Solomon was hesitant to single out a favorite moment of his sports career, he admitted the road to the dual crowns a couple of seasons ago was among his best memories. “Both

Luke and Solomon are great athletes conquering multiple sports throughout their respective high school careers,” said Warriors soccer coach Leo Quintero. “My highlight coaching them would have to be our CIF final last season where Solomon had the winning throw-in ‘golden goal,’” said Quintero of Solomon’s score in overtime that clinched the initial championship. During his junior year, Solomon decided to try out for track. “Solomon is a tremendous athlete, I am amazed

that he became a CIF medalist in the 400 meters by swinging a racket,” said Head Coach Van Latham of the track and field team. “He did very little training with us … Charles Bryant must be an excellent sprint coach,” he added. This season Luke decided to run alongside his brother, and they were part of a four x 400 relay team that qualified for the CIF Division IV Finals, finishing eighth in yet another impressive accomplishment for the Nahooikaika-Anderson twins, Luke and Solomon.

By Mandi de Witte, CHS Science Department Chair On Monday evening, May 6, Carpinteria High School celebrated the opening of its new science building with a ribbon cutting ceremony and science night. Including two science classrooms, a biology lab, chemistry lab and physics/engineering lab, the new science wing will be used interchangeably on a rotating, daily basis by the six CHS science teachers. The state of the art Gen7 modular buildings are large and brightly lit with solar tube natural lighting and windows, and boast plenty of lab stations equipped with sinks, storage and gas for a range of hands-on activities and experiments. These facilities are the first of many renovations on the CHS campus thanks to funding from Measure U. The science department moved in in February 2019, and students have already been busy conducting experiments in the new rooms. The ribbon cutting ceremony was hosted in part by the Carpinteria Chamber of Commerce, who presented the CHS science department with a certificate of appreciation. Chamber President Joyce Donaldson, Mayor Wade Nomura and Carpinterian of the Year Curtis Lopez were just a few of many Carpinterians present to celebrate the grand opening. After the ceremony, CHS student science ambassadors welcomed visitors into the new lab facilities and led guests through a series of fun demonstrations and activities. A $32,000 donation from Chevron was a highlight of the evening, and will allow the purchase of new equipment such as gel electrophoresis chambers, a centrifuge, digital thermometers and more to enhance science lab experiences.

From the Passage to Montanon Ridge cVn

unpredictable wilderness chuck graham

I’d barely begun bushwhacking up a side canyon in Scorpion Canyon—located on the southeast end of Santa Cruz Island, the largest isle in the Channel Islands National Park—when I felt an annoyingly familiar pinch on my upper back. A dreaded something was burrowing in. Ticks have become a heightened concern on the chain, especially on Santa Cruz because it receives the most traffic. With all the rain from last winter many of the trails are overgrown, and narrow, deluge-swollen side canyons are especially choked. Fortunately, I was able to reach around and pull the hardy pest out. That wasn’t the only tick I found this spring. The island flora has been off the charts, some of the best I’ve ever seen, but getting to the best displays can require a bit of off-trail effort—so ticks be damned. There have been high concentrations of giant coreopsis, gold bush, silver lupine, island paintbrush, blue dicks, Santa Cruz Island liveforevers and Santa Cruz Island silver lotus, my favorite.

Anacapa Passage

It was a surprisingly calm spring afternoon, no perpetual northwest winds to foul things up. If there’s a wet winter the giant coreopsis is the first prominent wildflower to bloom on the islands. They look like miniature trees with clusters of vibrant yellow blooms and they were peaking. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting them to be going off where I hiked that afternoon. I’d arranged for three kayakers to meet me at San Pedro Point so I could photograph them just off the southeast tip of Santa Cruz with the Anacapa Passage and Anacapa Island in the background. While my three subjects paddled southeast to San Pedro, I would have to run/hike with camera gear to the tip and time their arrival. The road to Smugglers Cove was a muddy quagmire, a National Park Service backhoe was stuck and left in the mud. I ran past it and then made the descent toward Smugglers. Just before reaching the idyllic, shaded cove, I veered off trail, thrashing through grasses that were shoulder-high. I dipped down into three craggy canyons before finally feeling that convergence of currents swirling below me, my three kayakers exactly

Blue dicks flourish on Santa Cruz Island. where I needed them to be. The clusters of giant coreopsis were a surprise, a bonus in the foreground as the kayakers bobbed on shimmering cobalt seas. When I was finished, I waved them off and hiked off trail all the way back to the lonely backhoe. Along the way I navigated a route between miniature forests of spindly blue dicks and canopies of Saint Catherine’s lace, tapping into island fox trails wherever it was convenient.

Ridge runner

There wasn’t a whole lot of time to spare. I’d just finished leading a kayak tour at Scorpion Anchorage, but I also had Montanon Ridge on my mind all day. The 5-mile-long trail is steep and rocky, but I was anticipating wildflowers along the narrow, serpentine ridgetop to its island summit overlook. Much of the trail appears moonscapelike, the red earth dominating the route before reaching a series of saddles and ridges leading to the summit of 1,808 feet, the highest accessible point in the entire national park. Along the way I passed blooming island bush poppy, deerweed, island buckwheat, blue dicks and healthy pockets of Santa Cruz Island liveforevers before reaching the Prisoners Harbor Trail junction. Just beyond the junction, dense, spring fog was billowing up from the north side of the ridge, but thwarted from descending the southeast side. Winds do crazy things out on the islands. Northwest winds were doing what they normally do in the spring, blowing down island at no more than 15-20 knots. However, as I

I located my first small patch of Santa Cruz Island silver lotus just below the 1,808-foot summit, but then I was finding it all over the southwest side of the ridge. It was some of the biggest swaths of silver lotus I’ve ever seen. Its silver stems and leaves a fine contrast to its yellow and cinnamon-colored blooms that were clearly enjoying the wind-whipped, rocky, volcanic soil.

I stayed and photographed until 8 p.m. Reveling in the diffused light, larger patches of silver lotus filled in the gaps between silver lupine and island monkey flower, the island flora soaking in warmer, softer tones as sunset turned to night on the most biodiverse isle off the California coast.

Car • PET • teria Getting Rowdy at the ranch

On May 15, a mini mule was born at Heartstone Ranch. His family named him Rowdy after Clint Eastwood’s character Rowdy Yates in the 1960s television series “Rawhide.” Rowdy’s mother is a pony from Texas who was purchased and shipped to Carpinteria seven months ago. Unbeknownst to the old or new families, the Shetland pony was pregnant with the foal of a donkey. The ranch veterinarian reports that Rowdy and his mom are doing great, and in his 30 years as a vet, he’s never seen a mini mule. Rowdy is special.
