This holiday season, the city of Carpinteria and Coastal View News have partnered to promote local shopping and dining in support of Carpinteria businesses. Regulations designed to protect the health and wellness of the community during the Covid-19 pandemic have created an existential challenge for many small businesses. By launching the “Keeping it Carp” campaign, the city and CVN aim to draw attention to the importance of local spending and the many ways that it benefits the community. “When you choose to buy a gift in Carpinteria instead of online or at a big box store, your purchase has a multiplier effect,” said City Manager Dave Durflinger. “The more committed we are to shopping locally, the more our dollars cycle through the community.” The pandemic has impacted the profitability of local businesses by requiring

SURFLINER Inn PROPOSAL? Surfliner Inn Conceptual Review Monday, Nov. 30 at 5:30 p.m.

The City Council, Planning Commission, and ARB will review a conceptual design for a 40-room hotel proposed for a portion of the City parking lot at Linden Avenue & 5th Street (north of the railroad tracks). Members of the public can watch, listen, and share their opinions during the public review.

capacity reductions and costly modifications to reduce the potential of viral transmission. For many local businesses, a successful holiday season is critical to survival. Holiday shoppers who support local businesses will help keep jobs in Carpinteria, allow merchants to maintain support for local nonprofits, generate tax dollars for public programs and emergency services and preserve and enhance Carpinteria’s vibrant downtown. “At no time in Coastal View News’ history has it been more important to promote our local merchants. They are the beating heart of this community. Local spending is tantamount to life support right now,” said CVN Co-publisher Mike VanStry. Through social media and print advertising, the Keeping it Carp campaign will encourage local spending by spotlighting community members and their unique perspectives on the benefits of spending money in Carpinteria. Look for new ads each week in CVN and follow the city of Carpinteria on Facebook and Instagram.

Our community supports The Surfliner Inn “The proposed Surfliner Inn project hits all the right notes with regard to aesthetics, style, size and scale. The development team is refreshingly honest and accessible and is committed to transparency. This project will attract economic vitality and revitalize the downtown T. It will bring jobs and additional benefits to locals non-profits, a gorgeous rooftop lounge and a locally driven coffee bar and a meeting room. I can't wait to see it happen! — Marybeth Carty - Carpinteria, Ca “This project is both Carp and Commerce friendly and I encourage any and all residents interested in making a well-informed opinion, to meet with the team, ask questions, make comments and learn facts. I fully support this project” — Hanna Brand - Carpinteria, Ca “We have an opportunity to reinvest into our business community, which is badly needed! I’ve read the plan and feel the Surfliner Inn fits perfectly with our heritage and charm while supporting promotion for a vibrate downtown. This is a wonderful example of balancing quaintness with economic vitality and I support this project 100%!” — Doralee Jacobson - Carpinteria, Ca “This is a privately financed hotel that will require no local funding, yet will bring at least half a million in annual revenue to the city. From the conceptual plans I’ve seen, this quaint, 40-room Surfliner Inn is a beachy design and adds to the small-town charm and historic character of Carpinteria. Public parking will increase by 31 spaces at no cost to the city, with a new 83-space lot providing closer access to the beach, which is something to celebrate!” — Karen Clark - Carpinteria, Ca “I believe this project can act as gateway between the beach the downtown that would benefit Carpinteria with much needed employment and revenue” — Keith Stein - Carpinteria, Ca “The Surfliner Inn will be an asset for visitors and local businesses will also benefit because a vibrant, thriving downtown––one that checks all the boxes—is essential for the health and well-being of our community” — Carla Stein - Carpinteria, Ca "I am a business woman with a strong desire to keep Carpinteria small and charming. I believe that the 40 room hotel being proposed can keep both of those hats firmly perched upon my head. A small hotel in the downtown area sounds like an excellent idea for locals and travelers alike.”— Christie Boyd - Carpinteria, Ca “I believe 100% that the improvements of parking lot three, offers us the opportunity to leverage this underused location into a beautiful, smart, quaint, friendly anchor while still retaining the magic of Carpinteria. This is a project that will be a gem for the downtown area. I’ve talked to a number of downtown merchants and all agree that this would bring revenue to their bottom line.” — Windred Van Wingerden - Carpinteria, Ca “As a proud Carpinteria resident, I want to express my full support of the Surfliner Inn project located at 499 Linden St. The planning team of the Surfliner Inn shares my commitment to the distinct culture and close-knit community of our city while seeking to preserve and protect the local environment with a sustainability-focused approach.” — Christine Frontado - Carpinteria, Ca “It’s being built on a parking lot. No wildlife will be harmed, the garden will not be moved. The building is proposed at 30 feet high, same as Island Brew. The hotel is adding only 40 rooms to a neighborhood of mostly vacation rentals (we have over 750 of those). Once built, the hotel will have 31 more parking spaces than are available now.” — Steve Meade - Carpinteria, Ca “I’ve been a beachside resident in Carpinteria for some 25 years and I’ve looked closely at the facts on record. The Inn’s architecture is wonderfully consistent with the community, the hotel will showcase local art, it will vitalize local businesses, it will offer us its rooftop space for charitable causes up to 10 times per year. I support this project 100%” — Dana Rosenberg, - Carpinteria, CA As a child of Carpinteria who has now become a father, a small business owner, and a community activist I am forever thankful to our community elders for fighting for the preservation of our town by keeping the big box corporate businesses out and our open spaces open. But, I recognize that we are entering into a new time for our community. A time where if we don't allow selective, Carpinteria culture specific development in our little town we will see continued decay, stagnation, and decreasing opportunity for our local people. With that said, I like this project and think you would too if you looked into it and saw past the aggressive smear campaign” — Jason Lesh - Carpinteria, Ca

State attempts to curtail Covid with curfew

Beginning on Nov. 21, non-essential workplaces in Santa Barbara County were ordered to close between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. daily. The new state of California mandate applies to all counties in the Purple Tier, which includes Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo. Restaurant takeout will be allowed after 10 p.m. but no sit-down dining outside. The mandate aims to reduce community spread of Covid-19, protect individuals at higher risk of severe illness or death from Covid-19 and prevent the state’s health care delivery system from becoming overwhelmed.

Canalino student tests positive for Covid-19

On the Friday before Thanksgiving Break, Nov. 20, Canalino Elementary School Principal Jamie Persoon confirmed that there had been two Covid-19 cases that week, one with a staff member, and one with a student. Neither Covid case was traced to exposure on campus and in both cases, the families were aware of their exposure outside of the school environment. “This means that we can isolate those cases, quarantine the group, and minimize the impact,” said Persoon, also noting that in both cases, symptoms had been mild.

“The good news is that the cohort system has worked. To our knowledge, none of the other students or staff contracted the virus,” Persoon said. “This is why we are so strident about social distancing, not mixing cohorts of students, keeping desks six feet apart, making sure students all have their own materials and supplies, stored in their plastic boxes, each student having his/her own camp style chair for outdoor learning or breaks for recess and lunch, specific assigned restrooms dependent on classroom location, and much, much more.” Aliso Elementary School has had no reported cases of Covid-19. All Carpinteria Unified School District Schools are closed this week for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Paul Allen Stine 5/7/1938 – 11/13/2020

Paul Allen Stine passed away Nov. 13, 2020. He was 82 years old and a resident of Carpinteria, California for 53 years. Paul was born in Martinez, California to parents Paul Henry and Eunice Stine on May 7, 1938. His father was a farmer and welder by trade. The family moved to Madras, Oregon from Ottawa, Kansas when Paul was 10 years old. He was an integral part in helping his father establish and maintain their farm. It was the cornerstone of the man he would become. Hard work, discipline and responsibility was expected and given. Every day was a learning experience that resonated throughout his life. In high school, Paul participated in all sports and was one of the top five players in three of the four years he played on the Varsity Basketball Team, going to the State Tournament in his senior year. He attended Oregon Technical Institute in Klamath Falls, Oregon and took courses in metallurgy and drafting. He earned certification as a Hard Hat-Scuba Diver and did salvage dives in the Great Lakes area, Washington and Oregon. He also participated in a sunken treasure expedition in Costa Rica. While attending junior college, Paul was drafted into the Army, he was stationed in Munich, Germany. During his tour of duty, he was a member of his

unit’s basketball team playing in exhibition games throughout Europe. He also lifeguarded the pool during the summer months. Before he was honorably discharged in 1963, he met his future wife Inga and they married the following year. They resided in Oregon where Paul worked as a heavy equipment operator for logging companies. Three years later, they moved to California where Paul worked as a Welder on the construction of a Drilling Barge, that led to permanent employment with B+C Welding Inc. located in Carpinteria. Much of the work was offshore so Paul became a familiar face on all the drilling platforms in the Santa Barbara Channel. Years later, he worked in a supervisory position scheduling, expediting and coordinating jobs and work crews. He established concrete business relationships with customers, suppliers and personnel. In 1976, after working for the company for nine years, Paul became owner/ president of B+C Welding Inc. which led to continuous growth. Onshore/offshore capabilities of the company created jobs in California, Louisiana, Alaska and the Far East. Later B+C Fabricators Inc. was established and located in Port Hueneme, California to meet the demand of large structural steel projects. This location was ideal for fabrications to be assembled at a dock facility then transported by barge to the designated platforms. After 38 years of providing quality craftsmanship and services to all customers, Paul retired in 2005. He was a member of the Lions Club and VFW. He loved family gatherings, country music and fishing, especially for salmon and halibut in Alaska. He is survived by his wife Inga of 56 years, daughter Cindy, grandchildren Nicole and Austin, great-grandchildren Jaxxon and Benny; brother Ken Stine, sisters Judy Ottenbacher and Nancy Siegenhagen and numerous nieces and nephews. Due to Covid-19, services will be private.

LETTERS “Volunteers are the heart of our community. To anyone that is not yet involved at the Carpinteria Arts Center, I would like to invite you to come join the fun.”

––Kristina Calkins

We’ve done it before, let’s do it again

Many thanks to the letter writers in the Nov. 5 edition of Coastal View News for voicing their clear opposition to the proposed Surfliner Inn. As a residential building contractor on the south coast for 35 years and a homeowner in Serena Park near the Polo Fields for 20 years, I have seen the concerns of our enlightened citizenry expressed when threatened by over-development. We are so fortunate here in Carpinteria to have such beautiful environs with a classic small beach town that is a joy to the locals as well as the many people that visit each year. When the proposed development of the Carpinteria Bluffs came up more than 20 years ago, we rallied against it. When another proposed development on the Bluffs above Bates Beach appeared, we rallied again and stopped it from proceeding. We now have, for the most part, a green belt from Rincon to the State Park. The Surfliner Inn represents a bad change to the small-town character of Carpinteria and could lead to poorer downtown development decisions based on “city financial concerns.” More critical thought and energy from our elected officials needs to focus on incentivizing renovation and upgrading of existing downtown commercial buildings as well as keeping an eye on maintaining the character of town that we cherish.

Barry Gordon Carpinteria

Let’s be open minded

I’ve been following the proposed Surfliner Inn for the past two years, and I’ve seen the developers go through countless meetings with the city to get to this point. Over this time, I’ve heard a lot of misinformation which continues to circulate throughout the community. The Surfliner is in the conceptual review phase and the developers will present their plans on Nov. 30. This is a privately financed hotel that will require no local funding yet will bring at least half a million in annual revenue to the city. From the conceptual plans I’ve seen, this quaint, 40-room inn is a beachy design and adds to the smalltown charm and historic character of Carpinteria. Public parking will increase by 31 spaces at no cost to the city, with a new 83-space lot providing closer access to the beach, which is something to celebrate! This makes perfect sense since residents on the beach side must endure beachgoers constantly parking in front of their homes. This proposed beachside lot will help alleviate that free-for-all that beach residents endure during summer days. Now, more than ever, let’s be open minded to smart, caring projects like the proposed Surfliner Inn, which will add so much to the Carpinteria community.

Karen Clark Carpinteria

The promises of Open Space

The would-be developers of a railroad hotel assume that the people of Carpinteria welcome a public parking lot on the south side of the railroad tracks. With hubris, they suppose property owners welcome parking against their homes. Ten families greatly disagree! When the city bought this land in 2013 and designated it as Open Space/ Recreation, a parking lot was only one of many future use options. The city’s General Plan states that Open Spaces “are to be used as buffers for noise and visual nuisances and as transitions between incompatible uses.” The public process to determine use of this coastal Open Space Corridor should be a separate issue from the package being presented to us today. The long-awaited Walker Parking Study does not address in any detail the concerns of putting a parking lot to the south of the tracks. Yet, the developer’s presentations have flipped from having the entrance/exit on Linden to only on Elm and now back to Linden with an “emergency exit” on Elm. LOSSAN is coming with a second train track, which puts the exit on Linden against the tracks. Without a proper parking study, who is to say that the unsafe congestion at Linden will not require another flip to an entrance/exit on Elm, channeling traffic into our narrow streets without sidewalks? The Downtown Beach Neighborhood is a unique, one-way-out area that lives with visitors filling its streets. Cars are spread throughout the whole neighborhood, and not confined to just one concentrated exit. Visitors who get off the train or pass through Carpinteria see majestic clear views to the mountains, and open fields towards the ocean. I hope someday that the open space becomes a trail stretching from Linden to Holly, along with a tree-filled open space for all to enjoy.

Kirk Connally Carpinteria

A beneficial project

I’m writing in support of the proposed Surfliner Inn. Over 53 years ago, we moved to Carpinteria so my late husband John Frontado could join and later lead the Carpinteria Police Force. It has been disheartening to see our local police force dismantled and replaced by county Sheriff’s, sadly because the city couldn’t afford to fund a force of our own. I support this project for a number of reasons, but one of the biggest is the revenue it will bring to our city. An additional $500,000 per year can go a long way in helping to support the many projects needed to keep our community safe and robust. I also like the idea of revitalizing that area of town, which I feel has always

See LETTERS Continued on page 7

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

LETTERS Continued from page 6 been a bit neglected, even back in the days when I was an employee at Infrared. I also like that they’ll be encouraging people to visit by train, which is a responsible and environmentally friendly approach. This hotel, about twice the size of Robitaille’s Candies, will fit nicely in our downtown, provide ample parking and give our businesses and community a beautiful addition to our Downtown-T. This is a smart and sound project and I encourage our policy makers and committee members to take the long view and not be influenced by the systematic untruths being shared among some community members.

Christine Frontado Carpinteria

Have compassion, consider workers

There have been many “Opinions” regarding the proposed Surfliner Inn project—from aesthetics, whether parking is too close to residences (which may, or may not, cause cancer) to blocking our beloved views of the ocean. But one thing that is not in dispute is the “fact” that our lovely small town character will no longer exist the way we like it without the means to sustain it. I am saddened by the lack of compassion exhibited by all these selfish opinion givers. The city manager tells us that already $500,000 has been lost by this pandemic and that is only the beginning. Money to maintain roads, landscaping, parks, etc. will never be recovered. And the job losses. Has anyone noticed that the Palms has been closed for six months? Hard working service workers may never recover. But without a job, recovery will never be possible. Whatever your opinion about our beloved village, have a little compassion for the people who work here, their families and the overall public good that good quality commerce can provide. That is not an opinion but a very sad fact.

Arts Center calls for volunteers

Carpinteria is such a wonderful place to live and for visitors to enjoy. One of the main reasons is because of all the amazing volunteers that give back to our community in so many ways. During this time of giving thanks, I would like to say that I am very thankful for our community volunteers. I started working at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center over four years ago. Without a doubt, the favorite part of my job is being surrounded by such inspirational people that give so much to our town. During the early part of the pandemic when we were all working from home, I missed seeing everyone in person. Now that our gallery is again open with modified hours, it feels so good to be surrounded by all the positive energy of our incredible volunteers. The Carpinteria Arts Center has all sorts of volunteers. People that love to help at events, organize art films, art tours and live music, all of which has needed to come to a pause during the pandemic. We also have various committees that develop different ideas for our community and help make them happen. In addition, volunteers help with our virtual classes by putting together art supply kits. Most publicly visible is all the many volunteers that come in every single week and serve as hosts in our gallery. And of course, we are also lucky to have those that offer our organization leadership by serving on our Board of Directors. Volunteers are the heart of our community. To anyone that is not yet involved at the Carpinteria Arts Center, I would like to invite you to come join the fun. We are always looking for new people to help and be part of our creative team.

During Carpinteria City Council’s Monday night meeting, councilmembers unanimously voted to cancel the Dec. 29 meeting, as well as close Carpinteria City Hall between Dec. 14 and Jan. 1, in part due to the upcoming furlough. “(The meeting cancellation) is a recurring item that we consider each year for cancelling the second meeting in December during the holidays, but it’s a little different this year also, because it includes a closure related to the furlough,” Carpinteria City Manager Dave Durflinger said. “It’s a cost-saving measure… Closing allows us to meet the budgetary goal of 40 hours of furlough time.” Human Resources representative Laura Hernandez also spoke at the council’s Nov. 24 meeting about the furlough. “Some staff, depending on their schedule, will officially start their (furlough) on Dec. 14, or on Dec. 15. As far as services, things are still going to be running—there will still be law enforcement; we’re still going to have the street sweeping and trash services.” She added that a number of services will be limited, including parking enforcement and food compliance services, and that some city services will be on-call. There was no public comment on the meeting cancellation or on the furlough.

Covid-19 update

As of last week, Santa Barbara County is back in the Purple Tier, the highest level of classification in the state’s Covid-19 classifications, limiting operations in the county and in Carpinteria. “We have rolled back into those additional restrictions, which has further restrictions on restaurant activity and dining, as well as capacity in indoor retail,” said Durflinger. “That was, I think, a surprise to many folks. It was a change in the state. We had been well into the Red Tier for some time, but the case numbers had gone up in our country to the point where we had slipped into the purple tier,” he added. He also noted that the county has a new Covid-19 dashboard, which can be viewed at publichealthsbc.org/data. The dashboard shows the criteria that a county isn’t meeting in order to be able to move into a lower tier. “In the case rate per 100,000, we’re still well into the purple level, we’ve been there well over a week,” he said. As of Nov. 21, the most recent update on the county’s dashboard, there are 333 active Covid-19 cases in Santa Barbara County. There have been 10,934 cases in the county overall.

Possible housing units near Monte Vista Park

Durflinger stated that he has had several meetings with the Housing Authority of the county of Santa Barbara and a private developer regarding a project concept for apartment units across from Monte Vista Park on the north end of Bailard Avenue. “It’s a piece of property that the school district has owned for some time now, has a few homes on it… in the unincorporated county area directly adjacent to the city,” he said. “It looks like the county will be consummating the purchase of that property and looking to propose residential development.” As of now, the property would follow housing zoning guidelines for the county, not the city of Carpinteria, Durflinger said. “The county has higher residential for multi-family, and they allow taller buildings,” he said. “The preliminary project that we’ve seen includes both a density and a building height that would exceed maximums allowed in Carpinteria. That’s just a difference between county and city zoning.” At the council’s request, he added the plans do contain enough parking spots to meet Carpinteria standards.

Carpinteria Racial Equality & Social Justice Program

The council unanimously approved allowing city staff to begin contract negotiations for consultant services with the National League of Cities’ Racial Equity & Leadership Group (NLC REAL) and Just Communities Central Coast. Both groups focus on helping cities with developing racial equity and social justice programs. Prior to this, the city sent out a call nationally for consultants to help develop a racial equality and social justice program. “We’re excited with both these groups, we talked to both of them on a Zoom call together, and they’re excited about working together if they get that opportunity,” Durflinger said. Durflinger said the contracts will be for approximately three years of services, with the majority of work done in the first year. The council’s ad-hoc committee centered on this topic, as well as Mayor Wade Nomura and Councilmember Fred Shaw, recommended using both of the consultant groups rather than just one. Steps toward creating a racial equity and social justice program began in June, when the council passed resolution No. 5981, which made several promises to the community, according to the staff report presented at the meeting.

The Weekly Crossword Aliso and Albertsons partner to bring Thanksgiving dinners to school families

by Margie E. Burke



With the holidays right around the corner, and the pandemic taking its toll on families, Bert Dannenberg, a school counselor at Aliso Elementary School, and Patty Ramos, store director at Albertsons, collaborated to provide 30 Thanksgiving dinners to families who were struggling this holiday season due to Covid-19. Back in mid-October, Dannenberg began putting this idea into motion. At first, Dannenberg considered asking his fellow staff members to donate but later decided that it may have been a bit too much to ask of them, he explained. So instead, he thought back to his time working in the grocery industry and recalled how stores generally collected donations for the holidays and decided to reach out to a grocery store for help. Around the same time, Ramos, who had just transferred to the Albertsons in Carpinteria a couple of months earlier, wanted to expand the store’s donation programs for the holidays. Normally, Albertsons donates all the food they collect to the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, but Ramos wanted to do a bit more for the community, she noted. At the store she worked previously, in Newbury Park, she often collaborated with schools to provide meals for families. She wanted to do the same for Carpinteria’s families but didn’t know where to start, she commented. That’s when Dannenberg walked into her store and asked if she could donate a couple of turkeys to the school. Right away, Ramos told Dannenberg that she could do more than offer a couple of turkeys—Albertsons could give complete meals to families. Throughout the following month, Ramos urged all of her cashiers to raise money by asking customers to donate to the cause. By the end of the month, Ramos and her team had raised $7,092 in funds. With that money, they were able to create 88 full meals which included a large turkey, a container of creamed spinach, a box of Homestyle stuffing, a bag of potatoes, bread and Hawaiian rolls, and an apple and pumpkin pie. Fifty-eight of those meals were donated to the Foodbank and the other 30 were given to Aliso School to distribute to families in need. “I’m really proud of them,” said

PFC plans for annual Holiday Lights Tour

While Covid-19 has disrupted the holiday season in many ways, Parents for Canalino (PFC) have decided not to let it spoil the well-loved Holiday Lights Tour. In order to adapt to the new health and safety protocols, the parent group has created a revised format. On the evening of Saturday, Dec. 12, instead of boarding trolleys, families can join a caravan of personal vehicles to enjoy the lights together. Starting at Canalino Elementary School, the caravan will follow a route chosen to showcase the best holiday lights in town. PFC also plans to introduce a holiday scavenger hunt which will add a new layer of fun to the event. Awards will be given to the best decorated house and car in the caravan. The 2020 Holiday Lights Tour is a free event, although the PFC will accept donations. PFC is an all-volunteer organization that funds enrichment activities for students, provides teacher and staff support, and has contributed to creating a safe and healthy learning environment at Canalino during the pandemic. Additional Holiday Lights Tour details will be announced soon. To find out more, email pfcgroup1@yahoo.com.

Stanfield brings good spirits to Pacific Health Foods


MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N Pacific Health Foods has been nourishing Carpinteria for many years and has become the community’s go-to spot for healthy, organic produce and supplements. Working alongside the health food store owners, Whitney and Nathan Noll, is the store’s spirits buyer, Amy Stanfield, who believes in the mission of the family business. “We want people to think of us as a very warm and welcoming place,” said Stanfield, “where you can come to buy something that will make you feel good about buying, something that allows you to nourish yourself and help the community by doing it.” Before working at Pacific Health, Stanfield was a dedicated customer. “Probably half of my paycheck went to this store,” she joked. “The owners, Whitney and Nathan, are around my age. When they came into owning the store, they did a lot of good work. They added the refrigerator units, smoothie bar, backloading storage area and storage coolers.” Stanfield appreciates how big of a role the Nolls play in this community in providing healthy food. “People come to Nathan all the time with their ailments and he shares everything he can. He’ll even be in the middle of eating his lunch and come down to help someone with a question,” she noted. Stanfield previously moonlighted at Island Brewing Company for eight years before returning to school for art. She’s also nannied, traveled, made art and displayed her work in a few art shows. “I feel like I’m still so new, having started (at Pacific Health) in May, but I am slowly bonding with everybody,” she said. “It’s like when you’re fresh in a relationship.” Working at Island Brewing for so long and living in Carpinteria, Stanfield notes that she has become a part of the community and continues to meet new people. “Knowing the community is a big part of my job because I’m trying to buy for different clientele,” she said. “Certain people like certain beers and wines, etc. So, it’s nice to be able to reach out and hear what people are looking for when I’m buying.” Stanfield’s father was a brewer and Stanfield has worked in the service industry since she was 16. Growing up surrounded by food and beverages eventually led to her love for finding and sourcing the people and companies that are creating “beautiful products of great quality.” “I really appreciated the slow art of creating your own beer at home,” noted Stanfield. “When I source the beer and wine for Pacific Health Foods, I look for the same in other companies, the slow process, and not the mass-produced companies out there.” When choosing companies to buy from, Stanfield does background research to see where they are from, if they are helping their community or the environment in some way, and if they are being creative in style, such as innovative beer styles. “If their art and marketing is awesome, then I try and taste their product with whoever is representing them,” she said. “My father was a brewer and my fiancé is one of the founders of brew-

Amy Stanfield grew up in the brewing industry and now purchases spirits for Pacific Health Foods. LAB, so I am constantly surrounded by products, makers, brewers and events. The beverage market is constantly evolving. People are always coming up with new things—new labels, new styles. It’s always changing which makes my job really fun and interesting.” Stanfield is an avid proponent of the organic movement and advocates for people to be more conscious and aware of the products they are consuming. She plans on taking courses to receive a few Sommeliers certifications, which would help further her knowledge of wine. “When wine was starting to become mass produced and commercialized, instead of letting the grape naturally ferment to create its character, they started putting additives in the wine to control the outcome and consistency for the consumer,” she explained. “It’s not good for you, and it’s not good for the environment. Natural wines are typically wildly fermented and with no additives, low amounts of sulfites for preservation, lower alcohol and low intervention—and these are becoming more popular. It’s what people want and they want it from organic grapes, farmed biodynamically so that whatever is taken from the earth is then replenished. It’s an amazing movement because it’s helping us in the long run for future generations.” Stanfield expressed her pride in working at Pacific Health because they support and help people by creating a positive environment dedicated to feeding the community. Their sandwiches are made with fresh baked bread, freshly sliced meat and cheese and vegetables from the farmers market. All of their produce is sourced from the local farmers markets. They get their meat freshly butchered from Ojai and their fish from the Santa Barbara Fish Market at the harbor. “It’s nice to be a hub to all these small companies and the families it supports, she said. “We provide healthy organic options for those in need and support local artisans. As a consumer you have that small choice, and you can choose to support people who are trying to create something in a better way.” Pacific Health Foods is located at 944 Linden Ave. Brenda Tan is a columnist and a freelance writer. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in English, Writing and Literature, and Art History with an emphasis in Museum Studies at UCSB. She can be reached at brendatan321@gmail.com.


The familyowned health foods store, Pacific Health Foods, sells a broad selection of responsibly produced wine and beer.

Updates: Covid-19, Multicultural Literature, Measure U




Due to the rise of Covid-19 transmissions and hospitalizations throughout the state, the governor announced on Nov. 16 that Santa Barbara County has been moved back into the Purple Tier which is the most restrictive tier. This change from the Red to Purple Tier does not affect the current in-person instruction for the elementary schools or small cohorts at Carpinteria Middle and High schools. However, if the county continues to remain in the Purple Tier, then CMS and CHS will not be able to reopen as planned on Jan. 7. The school district recommends that people follow the county’s guidance from the Public Health Department: “Holidays


must look different this year if we want to avoid overburdening our healthcare system and further impacts to our economy. We are at a critical point where every person must wear a face covering, avoid any gatherings with persons outside their home, and stay home if you are ill.” Additionally, the state of California has issued a travel advisory and guidance which recommends no travel outside the state or country. Travel and mixing households during the holidays increases the chance of contracting and spreading the Covid-19 virus. Those who do travel are strongly advised to self-quarantine 14 days upon return to California. For more information, about staying safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, visit publichealthsbc.org.

CHS Multicultural Literature

Twenty-seven seniors are enrolled in a yearlong college preparatory English course which meets the additional requirements for English composition, extensive reading of modern literature, frequent writing from brainstorming to a final paper, and practice listening to and speaking with different audiences. The course focuses on literature created by and about people of diverse ethnic backgrounds. Students will read “The Hate You Give” by Angie Thomas; “I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter” by Erika San-

Measure U

The district has begun the bidding process for removal of three portable classrooms and a restroom at Canalino Elementary School. This project will occur over winter break. Following the removal, Canalino will only have two portable classrooms remaining—the library and the computer lab. Modernization of the CHS gym began on July 1 and is now 50% complete. It’s anticipated to be completed by the end of February 2021. Plans for the new administration building have been submitted to the Division of the State Architect (DSA). Construction is anticipated to begin summer 2021.

The Measure U team has submitted the revised Summerland preliminary concept review to the county Board of Architectural Review (BAR) and received preliminary concept approval on Oct. 2 subject to some minor changes. The project is currently undergoing review with the county Planning and Development Department as part of the process for obtaining a Coastal Development permit. In addition, the architects are designing the detailed plans in preparation for submission to the DSA. Diana Rigby is the current superintendent of Carpinteria Unified School District.

“Operation Holiday Cheer” helps brighten the holidays

Girls Inc. of Carpinteria has launched a new initiative this year, “Operation Holiday Cheer,” a giving program created to provide local girls and families with a brighter holiday season following the challenges of this pandemic-laden year. Girls Inc. will collaborate with Cox Communications to purchase holiday gifts for local girls and their families. “Young people are facing complex challenges this year, from financial hardships, to isolation from friends and their normal routines, to ongoing feelings of uncertainty,” said Jamie Collins, executive director of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria. “We are more committed than ever to ensuring local girls have the tools and support they need to push past barriers and thrive, and we’re grateful to partner with Cox Communications to deliver hope to these girls and their families this holiday season.” Operation Holiday Cheer focuses on inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold by encouraging participation in distance learning, reading, voting education, physical activities and more. Girls Inc. members will receive “points” for taking part in various activities, and gift recipients will be selected based on the point system. Girls Inc. of Carpinteria and Cox will purchase holiday gifts for 75 girls, including gifts for each of their immediate family members. The gifts will be presented via a drive-through gift giving event on

In a medium-sized saucepan add cranberries, water, sugar and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have burst open and can easily be stirred into the syrup, resulting in a smooth consistency (about 10 minutes). Once done, remove syrup from heat. Fit a large bowl with a fine mesh strainer and strain the simple syrup, leaving all of the large chunks and skin behind. Let cool for at least 10 minutes. Put 3/4 cup of cooled simple syrup, whiskey, lime juice and a large handful of ice into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Pour and enjoy! …simply fine wines at great prices!

The Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table has awarded Kate Cooney, in the Warrior’s jersey leading her pack, the 2020 Phil Womble Award.

Kate Cooney wins Phil Womble Award

Full Service Plumber


10% DISCOUNT We Are Proud Supporters of Warrior Athletics Locally Owned. Lic. # 375514

Cooney holds five varsity letters, one in soccer and two in both track & field and crosscounty.


This year’s recipient of the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table’s Phil Womble Award is Carpinteria High School junior, Kate Cooney. The Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award is a recognition of student-athletes who embody the highest standards of sportsmanship, respect for others and promote the development of good character with those around them. For anyone who knows Cooney, winning this award comes as no surprise. When it comes to her athletic ability, in her first two years of high school, she earned five varsity letters, two in track & field, two in cross country and one in soccer. She’s also earned the crosscountry Rookie of the Year award in 2018 and the Coach’s Award in 2019. “She’s one of our best distance runners and last year as a sophomore she was league champion at the frosh-soph level at the 3200 meters,” said Van Latham, Warriors Track & Field coach. When it comes to her academic achievements, it’s nothing but impressive. She currently holds a 4.67-grade point average, won the 2020 CHS English Department Award, and is currently taking three Advanced Placement classes and is dual enrollment in classes at Santa Barbara Community College.  When Cooney found out she had won the award, she said she was genuinely surprised and slightly confused. “When I found out I won the Phil Womble award, I was really surprised. The first thing I did was ask “Who’s Phil Womble?”,” said Cooney. “After I learned of his story, I felt really honored that my coaches had chosen me as a person who embodies the characteristics of a Womble award winner. I think my excitement kind of built up more and more as I talked to other people and they told me their bits and pieces of Womble history.” The namesake of the award, Phil Wom-

ble, was a Santa Barbara native who was born with cerebral palsy. However, Womble did not let his disorder stop him, achieving membership in the UCSB Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame, and becoming a UCSB historian, local author and a champion for people with disabilities. This award is meant to honor those values that Womble tried to embody his entire life. Womble passed away in January of 2017. “Winning this award is a huge honor for me, especially since my family is really big on sports and so involved in the Warrior community, and the attributes of the Womble Award are the values I have been raised with,” said Cooney. When her father, Pat Cooney, found out Cooney had won, he was emotional to say the least. “Our reaction was emotional! Honored that Kate joins an incredible list of past awardees,” said Pat. “Grateful to coaches, teachers, and so many that have supported Kate at CHS. We’re proud of Kate and thankful for the chance to pause to recognize her efforts.” It should be noted that Pat is the athletic director at CHS, but when he found out that Kate was being nominated for this award, he deferred from the process and allowed his assistant athletic director Charles Bryant to take the lead on the nomination process. Kate is the epitome of a studentathlete coaches like to see on their roster. “She’s a pure team player that does all those little things that add up whether on the field, course or track,” said Bryant. “When she is competing, she is giving you all she has. Her strong will and desire are just some of the intangibles that give, not just her, but also her teammates that extra push…  Kate can accept any role and turn it into a positive.” When it comes to winning this

Kate Cooney, second from right, wins a medal during a recent crosscountry season. award, Cooney said this is one of the highest honors she’s been awarded. She’s still unsure if she’ll pursue sports in college, but what she is certain about is what this award means to her.

“This award has inspired me to continue volunteering and helping out in the community, and most importantly it has inspired me to live by the values that I was recognized for,” said Cooney.

CHS senior Joana Romero Manriquez is a rising star in FFA, having won first place in Public Speaking for two consecutive years.

Mariana Esquivel Reyes, a freshman at CHS, took home first place in the Best Informed Greenhand competition.

Warriors FFA program churns out winners BY DEBRA HERRICK

Carpinteria High School’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) program continues to stand out as a leader in agricultural education. This month, two students took home first place awards in FFA district conferences, held virtually. Freshman Mariana Esquivel Reyes placed first for Best Informed Greenhand on Nov. 18, and senior Joana Romero Manriquez placed first in Public Speaking on Nov. 4. Both students competed against students from five schools in the Ventura Section: Santa Paula, Adolfo Camarillo, Fillmore and Ventura high schools. Carpinteria High School’s team placed second in the overall competition for Best Informed Greenhand and third overall in the Public Speaking competition. Esquivel’s top honors were earned in a quiz bowl style aptitude test on FFA leadership skills, including topics such as political decorum and organizational/constitutional structure, educational policy and major agricultural developments. “It feels good to win, I didn’t think I was going to, but I was ready for the questions,” Esquivel said, noting that she had been coached by her FFA teachers Sal Lopez and Noe Gomez. “I couldn’t have done it without them. They are really good teachers.” Esquivel also received guidance from her Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) teacher Ramsey Smith who encouraged her to join FFA. The AVID program facilitates students in doing well in school academics and extracurricular programs with the goal of applying to a four-year university. Students are assigned to cohorts for AVID and remain with the same classmates and teacher for all four years of high school. “If it wasn’t for her AVID teacher pushing her to get to know her teachers, we would never have met Mariana,” said Lopez. “She came over to one of our Zoom sessions and introduced herself and from that moment, we knew, we were so impressed we wanted her on our team. . . Mariana has natural leadership abilities. She has her camera on, she has great speaking abilities, and she is a natural butt-kicker.” This is the second year in a row that Romero has taken home first place in the Public Speaking competition. “Joana has been a great public speaker; she’s a natural,” said Lopez. “She’s a high prospect for a student with great leadership skills. She’s a great student; she excels in all her classes and she is still going strong even though classes are now online.” The FFA Public Speaking competition tests students on proper ways of opening and closing a procedure based on standard parliamentary procedures. FFA is not only about animals, said Lopez, “it’s a youth leadership organization.” Right now, Lopez noted that teachers are seeing a lot of students

experiencing apathy in school, but some students, like Esquivel and Romero, “are not allowing that this change bring them down.” They both studied and practiced. “We’d like to see more students adopt that attitude,” Lopez said. With their first-place wins, Esquivel and Romero now qualify for the FFA State Competition in their categories. The State Competition will be held in April 2021.

Stanley Park Lodge BY JIM CAMPOS

ALL PHOTOS FROM SEY KINSELL POSTCARD COLLECTION, 1900-1914 Shepard’s Inn had something of a sibling in Stanley Park Lodge, both literally and figuratively. The two resorts were separated by ¼ of a mile, and owned by brothers. The Inn had a boundary on the west wall of Rincon Creek, and the Lodge had one on the east side. Shepard’s Inn was the famous one, of course, renowned around the globe. Its register was filled with the names of the most celebrated people at the turn of the 20th century. Judging by the photographs that survive of the Lodge, however, it is hard to see why it did not achieve a bigger reputation in Carpinteria Valley history. When Shepard’s Inn was destroyed by fire in 1914, so too was Stanley Park Lodge. However, it was the Lodge that recovered from the fire and continued operation until 1936. The Inn gave up the ghost in 1922. Dr. John Henry (J. H.) Shepard, brother of James E. Shepard of Shepard’s Inn, settled initially in Montecito. He was a country doctor, but fell in love with farming. According to David Merrick in “Montecito Volume I” (1987), he purchased a section of the San Ysidro Ranch in 1881 and cultivated an area that came to be known as “Shepard’s lower orange orchard.” Shepard sold his orange orchard in 1884, and moved to the Carpinteria Valley adjacent to his brother James E. in 1893 where he would become a farmer and also establish the Stanley Park Lodge resort. A third Shepard brother, Simeon, already owned the property where John Henry would take up residence, having purchased it in the 1880s. The two brothers, thus, joined forces. Sim is credited by Carpinteria historians as one of the most important of the early lemon growers. An interesting historical note to the property on the San Ysidro Ranch is that John Harleigh Johnston was cultivating oranges and lemons on it by 1883. The Johnston Fruit Company was the first major packer of citrus fruit in Santa Barbara County. A second footnote is that the Johnston Fruit Company would merge with the Carpinteria Lemon Association and the Carpinteria Mutual Citrus Association to become the Santa Barbara Lemon Association headquartered at the bottom of Walnut Avenue in Carpinteria in the early 1960s. Dr. J. H. Shepard named his Carpinteria property Stanley Park after his son. By the late 1890s, the Stanley Park Lodge was in full swing presumably competing with Shepard’s Inn. The Lodge’s mission statement was “Where things are as they should be.” An advertising brochure describes a Stanley Park Lodge experience like this: “Rincon Creek winds its way through the park like a monstrous snake; majestic oaks and spotted sycamores shade its pools and crossings; tiger lilies grow amidst the ferns and grasses; excellent trails to the Santa Ynez Range and on into Matilija Canyon.” And a description of the facilities reads like this: “The hotel is a two-story structure, large living room, dining room, office, well-ventilated sleep-

Stanley Park Lodge had a luxurious-looking hotel with a nearby tavern for indoor dining.

Guests at the lodge could swim in a large natural pool, but leisure reading near the pool was okay, too, just not on a lounge chair, but on a boulder. At right, a rider on a surrey could cross over on the bridge to either Shepard’s Inn or the Stanley Park Lodge. ing rooms, sulphur (sic) baths.” One could seemingly do everything at Stanley Park Lodge that could be done at Shepard’s Inn, and more! There was trout fishing, hunting for quail, doves, rabbit and deer. There was dancing, lawn tennis, croquet and a large swimming hole with a waterfall. There was even a large skating rink on the premises! Albertina Rodriguez in her Carpinteria Herald column “Memories of Tina” wrote, “They had a large skating rink where I think everybody in Carpinteria learned to skate.” The dining area in the Stanley Park Lodge was in the hotel complex. But, there were additional living quarters laid out as a campground with tents with barbeque pits nearby. Thus, one could stay at the hotel and eat at the tavern or rough it outdoors. Stanley Shepard, for whom the park and lodge were named, is quoted in a deposition in 1975 regarding piping water out to both the Inn and the Lodge as saying, “It was not uncommon to have 50 or 60 people at Stanley Park Lodge, and possibly that many at Shepard’s Inn.” According to Stanley Shepard, Stanley Park Lodge was sold to a Mr. Fowler in 1913. But, then, like Shepard’s Inn, it was destroyed by fire a year later. Mr. Fowler sold the property to the Muzzall family in

The Muzzalls built new lodge facilities in 1916 and operated the remodeled Stanley Park Lodge until 1936. Recently, in the month of December, 2017, tragedy struck the Stanley Park Lodge area again. The Thomas Fire either directly, or indirectly—the fire facilitated mudslides after heavy rains—caused death and destruction throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. The remaining buildings of the Stanley Park Lodge were completely destroyed. The old lodge site was on private property

and private roads and was closed to the public. If you have a story or photo that tells a unique part of Carpinteria’s history, please contact Jim at drsjcampos@gmail.com.

At Joy Equipment Protection, fire safety is their business CVN

TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P Wildfires we can’t control, but house fires we can do our best to prevent. Although California’s wildfire season generally runs from May until October, home fires are at their highest in the fall and winter months, December and January being the peak. Which brings us to the most unusual business we’ve featured in this column and, in terms of safety, possibly the most important. Rick Joy is the owner of Joy Equipment Protection, Inc., a licensed fire protection company he opened in 1995, 17 years after moving to Carpinteria. His fire protection career started when he came to our coastal town in 1978, after taking a job with Santa Barbara Fire Equipment. Since then, his connection with Carpinteria has grown due to values he holds dear to his business: honest and kind professional service with an attitude people will remember. Or, as Rick says, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Suppose you’re wondering what a licensed fire protection company does (as I wondered too). In that case, Joy Equipment’s list of services includes installing residential and commercial fire sprinkler systems and kitchen hood systems, and servicing portable fire extinguishers. Sure, you may have smoke

Rick thanks the Joy Equipment team for making the business a success. (In no particular order: Luis Gonazlez, Christy Joy, Rick Joy, Van Joy, Spencer Joy, Lily Lizalde, Ben O’Hara, Ismael Ponce, Josh Reyes, Alex Robles, Paco Robles, Connie Zemke, Rob Allison, Phil King, Kyle Jensen and Zack Moore.)

detectors in your home and a dusty fire extinguisher in your house somewhere, but do you know where they are and how to use them? If not, Joy also offers hands-on training for working your fire safety equipment. Sounds like a good deal to me. When I asked Rick about the best business advice he’s received, he showed me something called “The Rules of the Road,” a list of advice his “very successful

Uncle Jerry” shared with him. Rick takes these rules seriously. So much so, that when I ask about the key to his success, he directs me to rule number 16: “A true leader is accessible—no job too big, no job too small.” What about his trade secret? Number 17: “Communication is our business. You can reach any of your associates anytime, anywhere, any place.” Then there’s number eight, which is the advice he would give his younger self just starting in business: “Take options, never give them.” And what makes his business operate differently than others? Number 15: “Supreme self-confidence, never arrogance.” Another way his business is unique is the family connection, the “special” dynamic of working with his son Van. “Day-to-day business is generally pretty busy, and Van plays a huge role dealing with it all,” said Rick. “Van is very handson with whatever needs to be done.” He also noted that Van is the epitome of rule number four: “Hire people smarter and better than you.” “Van is one of those,” admitted Joy. “I’m proud of what he can accomplish at work and with his wife Mallory and young son Griffin. Fortunate is only one way to say it.” Joy also noted

that his younger son, Spencer, who was an officer of Joy Equipment for several years “is very knowledgeable in the fire protection industry, hands on, and excellent at everything he does.” These days, Spencer works for Beacon West Energy in Carpinteria, “for a change of pace and to learn another type of operation.” The advice he lives by seems to work for a guy who started as a technician with one truck and has now grown into a team of over 15 people (a few who have been with the company for over three decades). “Everything changes, and the same with fire protection improvements and regulations,” Joy said. “We do our best to stay on top of the changes, but most important is that we continue to provide the best and honest service to our existing clients which leads to additional work for us all. Our reputation is A+ and we plan to keep it this way.” Joy Equipment is located at 5690 Casitas Pass Road. Learn more at joyequipment.com.

Point Bennett chronicles CVN

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM It did not hit me until a couple days after finishing my day trip, kayaking around Point Bennett, arguably the most exposed region of the Channel Islands National Park, located on the west end of San Miguel Island. After skimming through my photos from the day, I determined that most, if not all, of the seal and sea lion pups from the day had never seen a kayaker before. I cannot say I have spent a lot of time paddling around Point Bennett. It was only my third time doing so since I started kayaking the islands back in the mid-1990s. However, when opportunities arise, it is best to pounce. It’s all about wind and swell out there, so everything has to line up accordingly, which is rare. This past fall, my girlfriend Holly and I did a little volunteer ranger work on San Miguel Island. Our second stint – a nine-day run in October – had super calm conditions with little or no wind for the entire stretch. There were also several friends camping and one of them was there for the entire run. He expressed interest in paddling around the 27 miles of rugged coastline. That was all I needed to hear, so on Oct. 15, Danny Trudeau and I launched at dawn from Cuyler Harbor, first heading north around Hare Rock, Nifty Rock and then Harris Point. Beyond Harris Point, the long stretch of beach known as Simonton Cove extends westward out toward Castle Rock. The waters surrounding the prominent rock outcropping are known as “Shark Park”, a place that has a spooky feel, a reputation that can leave some uncomfortable for lots of reasons. There are some big fish that enjoy the food chain there. As calm as it was at dawn launching off the beach at Cuyler Harbor, a 5-foot north swell slammed into Harris Point and waves roared all the way out to Point Bennett. Trudeau and I paddled closer to Castle Rock than we did the craggy shoreline, and by the time we reached that jutting spire, waves were capping off Richardson Rock and out about a half mile beyond Point Bennett.


As seals and sea lions bask on the beach, there’s some serious body whomping just offshore. Once at Point Bennett, the seas became very unorganized. Waves from the southwest collided with surf from the north. Winds were out of the southwest and a wall of fog loomed in that direction as well. Waves capped all around us as we negotiated a path in between slabs of rocky reef.

Point Bennett

An ever-present, uneven chorus of barks, bellows, yelps, snorts, and sheeplike yawps carried across swirling currents and frothy whitewater, a pinniped serenade choreographed throughout the largest seal and sea lion rookery in North America, and maybe the world. It’s where a long-fingered beach surrounded in giant bladder kelp, teeming reefs and weather-beaten bluffs offered a safe haven for thousands upon thousands of seals and sea lions, one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles offsetting the Graveyard of the Pacific, where throngs of ships between 1869 and 1967 met their demise, ran aground and sank in turbulent seas. And yet, this windblown, wave-battered sanctuary houses four species of seals and sea lions that breed and pup there, those being California sea lions, harbor seals, northern fur seals and northern elephant seals. Occasionally, Point Bennett is visited by Guadalupe fur seals and Steller sea lions. There’s year-round drama on that long, crooked finger of gritty sand. Males fight over females and turf. Pups from all the species call out to their moms across the entire rookery, while they feed offshore. Young sea lions haul out on the broad backs of northern elephant seals as if

Danny Trudeau paddles past Castle Rock.

A Yoda-like northern fur seal pup strains its neck for a look at passing kayakers around Point Bennett. they have a deal in place with the second largest seal on the planet.

It’s All About the Ears

Their ears stand out like no other pinniped. It’s their ears, sheep-like yelps and cantankerous personalities that make the northern fur seal my favorite, and it’s especially the pups. Their little nurseries consisting of months-old pups frolicking in tide pools and pocket beaches, and the nips and tugs at each other were always comical. Some bodysurfed with efficiency. Others opted for all out body whomping as they were swept up and over a sturdy berm. Playful euphoria was evident as they waddled out for more. From our kayaks it was the fur seal pups that offered the most entertainment. We rested atop the canopy of giant blad-

der kelp and their curiosity was just too much for them. They had to porpoise over to at least have a look, but many popped up next to us, playfully splashing around our kayaks. When they’re in the water and wet, their earflaps poked straight out from their heads, revealing that Yoda-like pose they possess as they strained their necks for a decent look at two kayakers, a rarity around the exposed reefs and weather-beaten bluffs and beaches of Point Bennett.
