Cottage Health hospitals in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Santa Ynez Valley will require all visitors to either verify completed Covid-19 vaccination or verify a negative Covid-19 test result within 72 hours prior each visit. Staff at the hospital entrances will assist visitors with this screening process. To prepare, hospital visitors should bring their vaccine record card (printed or saved as image on phone), their immunization record from MyChart or the digital QR code available at myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov. If vaccination has not been completed, visitors will need a printed or digital copy of a negative Covid test within 72 hours prior to arrival.

An embankment on Carpinteria Sanitary District’s wastewater treatment facility was damaged by the Jan. 9, 2018 debris flows. Next week, construction will begin to repair the floodwall.

Construction begins on damaged floodwall at wastewater plant

As early as Aug. 16, the Carpinteria Sanitary District will begin construction on permanent repairs to the concrete embankment and floodwall on the eastern perimeter of its wastewater treatment facility, located at 5351 6th St. This critical infrastructure was damaged by the massive debris flow event in Carpinteria Creek on Jan. 9, 2018, which followed the Thomas Fires. Interim work to stabilize the embankment was completed in late 2018 while the district pursued permits to perform the permanent repair. A number of approvals still need to be secured to move forward, including approvals from the California Coastal Commission, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service and the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. The sanitary district said they have also put into place measures to minimize impacts to the creek environment, to protect sensitive species and to restore the habitat to pre-disaster conditions.

Approximately 210 linear feet of foundation that was destroyed in 2018 will be replaced. A steel sheet pile wall will be installed using vibratory methods and a reinforced concrete block foundation will be constructed between the new wall and the toe of the embankment. Soil will cover the replaced structure to provide for subsequent installation of arroyo willow and other native plant species. The work is being funded, in large part, by disaster recovery grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the California Office of Emergency Services. During the eight-to-10-week construction period, access in the creek corridor between 6th Street and the State Beach will be blocked off to ensure public safety. Area residents may experience some construction noise, within normal working hours, during a portion of the project. For more information, contact the sanitary district at (805) 684-7214 or info@ carpsan.com.

Planners split on Vallecito home expansion, say it’s ‘too big’ for now BY RYAN P. CRUZ The Carpinteria Planning Commission came across a rare 2-2 vote at its most recent meeting regarding an 856 squarefoot second-story expansion of a home on Vallecito Road, after three neighboring families filed an appeal against the proposed addition to the residence. The impasse was reached after two opposing motions failed in split votes, with Chair Jane Benefield and Commissioner David Allen voting in support of the appeal, and Vice-Chair Glenn LaFevers and Commissioner John Moyer voting to affirm the Community Development Chair’s decision to approve the project as is. The absence of Commissioner John Callender created the setting for the split-vote, which staff and commissioners could not remember happening for years. LaFevers said that the proposal has already jumped through the hoops of previous approval from the Architectural Review Board and Community Development Director, and he thought it should be able to proceed. “The process that this project has been through is rigorous,” he said. “This

isn’t something that slipped through the tracks.” The home, which is the largest in the 34-home neighborhood, is the only property in the area that takes up an entire “through lot” – a 13,000 square-foot

parcel of land between Vallecito Road and Church Lane. LaFevers said it “fits on the lot beautifully” and proposed additions are “consistent” and “compatible” with the neighborhood. The families that filed the appeal say the proposed second-story windows are set too low and would allow a view directly into their yards and homes. John Kucharski, a neighbor that is part of the appeal, is hoping the plans can be revised to eliminate his privacy concerns, and he wants the second-story windows to be moved a foot higher. “That would still allow fresh air venti-

Council creates Harbor Seal Committee, response to declining seal population

BY EVELYN SPENCE

On Monday, the council approved the creation of the Harbor Seal Advisory Committee, in an effort to both study and protect the declining harbor seal population in Carpinteria. The committee will study both the decline in the number of harbor seals, as well as look at the possible options for how best to protect the harbor seal habitat moving forward. The committee will also look at whether the harbor seal population is declining across the board, or just in the Carpinteria rookery. It will remain active for one year beginning October 2021. The committee will be composed of both community members and two members of the council: Vice Mayor Al Clark and Councilmember Roy Lee.  During Monday’s meeting, the council discussed what type of group the committee would be classified as: an ad-hoc committee model, a small committee model, a large committee model or a working group model. The council ultimately went with a large committee/working group combination model, in an effort to include members of the public who have already been advocating fiercely on behalf of the seals.  Over the past 17 years, the Carpinteria Seal Watch, a volunteer group that keeps an eye out for the harbor seals, has documented a decline in the number of seals in the rookery. Data shows that in 2004, there were 365 adults in the area and 65 pups; in 2021, the group documented 220 adult seals and 64 pups.  City Manager Dave Durflinger thanked those who had spoken in previous council meetings or sent in letters on behalf of the harbor seals, pointing to the Carpinteria Valley Association and the Carpinteria Seal Watch. “The Carpinteria Valley Association provided a table to organize our options

a little bit better,” he explained. Several community members spoke during a public forum about the issue, expressing concern about the harbor seal population.  Susan Mailheau, a member of the Seal Watch and a veterinarian, said she “appreciates that Carpinteria wants to figure out the best way to figure out the best habitat and improvement for the harbor seals.”  “Their challenges are very unique, and very distinct,” she said. She brought copies of two scientific research studies focused on harbor seals to the council, stating she hopes the committee would use them. She encouraged the council to use the working group committee model.  Susan Allen, also a member of Seal Watch, encouraged the council during its meeting to work transparently with the public.  “This is really an educational process, and the more transparent, the more the public understands why this needs to be done and where it’s headed and will make it easier when we hopefully get to some solutions,” she said. “As far as getting help from members of the public, I would say there’s any number of seal watchers and other community members who would be more than happy to step in and ease the burden of staff. We know these are difficult times and staff have a lot on their plate.”  “We want to help,” she emphasized.

Council donates to Coalition Against Gun Violence

The council unanimously approved a $600 donation toward the Coalition Against Gun Violence for its gun buyback event that will be held on Aug. 21. The gun buyback event allows residents to anonymously exchange their firearms for a $100 or $200 Smart & Final gift card – depending on the type of weapon

KARLSSON

Over the past 17 years, the Carpinteria Seal Watch, a volunteer group that keeps an eye out for the harbor seals, has documented a decline in the number of seals in the rookery.

– in an attempt to get more firearms off the streets of Santa Barbara. The buyback is focused on people who have firearms in their possession that they no longer want or need, lessening any risk of any disposal they may do on their own. The firearms are destroyed once they are turned in. The event has been held for the past several years; the council last donated to this event, at the request of the same group, in 2018.  “In total, they’ve removed 1,169 firearms from our community,” Lea Boyd, representative from the coalition, said during the meeting. “It probably doesn’t need to be said, but gun violence is everywhere. Mass shootings are in the news all the time now. Close to home in recent years, we had the Isla Vista shooting and the Borderline shooting in Thousand Oaks.” “But gun violence is more than just big headlines and mass shootings. A gun in a home is 22 times more likely to be used against a family member in a homicide, suicide or accidental shooting, then to be used to kill someone in self-defense,” Boyd said. “Every day, eight to nine chil-

dren are killed by guns.” She also referenced Sunday’s weapon violations related arrests in Carpinteria. In two separate incidents, police arrested two individuals for possessing illegal firearms while in their vehicles.  “For $500, it’s well worth what this group is asking,” Councilmember Gregg A. Carty said, before the council approved a motion to up the donation to $600. “It’s a small price to pay.” 

Surfliner Inn ballot initiative

The city council will hold a special meeting on Aug. 16 at 5:30 p.m. to consider an election code in response to the proposed Surfliner Inn ballot initiative currently circulating in the community. The ballot initiative, spearheaded by community members, asks the council to put the Surfliner Inn issue on the November 2022 ballot for the community to vote on. At a special meeting held last month, the council voted 4-1, with Vice Mayor Al Clark dissenting, to move forward with a lease disposition and development agreement with the developers of the controversial project.

Construction Update: Crews continue to pave base layers for new lanes

In Carpinteria, construction crews working on the Highway 101 construction projects are continuing to pave base layers for northbound lanes, ahead of placing the pavement. Near Santa Monica and Via Real, utility crews are relocating overhead utilities; passersby should expect work in the area over the next few months. Crews are also installing new drainage features in the area and new overhead sign foundations. In Carpinteria, near the Franklin and Santa Monica creek bridges, crews are focusing on the concrete channels and the superstructures for each bridge. On the Hwy 101 northbound, travelers should expect one lane between Santa Monica Road and North Padaro Lane to be closed Aug. 15, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. One lane between Santa Monica Road and Sheffield Drive will also be closed Aug. 16 – 19, between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. The on- and off-ramps at Bailard Avenue will also be closed during those same days, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. On Thursday, Aug. 19, between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m., the on- and off-ramps at Sheffield Drive will be closed. Vehicles coming from North Jameson Lane can instead enter at the San Ysidro on-ramp. On the Hwy 101 southbound, one lane between North Padaro Lane and Reynolds Avenue will be closed on Aug. 15 between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. One lane on the stretch between Sheffield Drive and Reynolds Avenue will also be closed

Construction crews have begun installing new drainage features near Highway 101. Aug. 16 – 19, between 8 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. The on-ramp at Wallace Avenue is anticipated to reopen on Nov. 1. The on-

ramp at Sheffield Drive will be closed until 2023; drivers can use the Hwy 101 southbound on-ramp at North Padaro

Lane as a detour. The off-ramp at Sheffield Drive also remains closed and will reopen at the end of this year.

Town’s ambience is fine

The Surfliner Inn developers stated their inn will “uplift the ambience of the downtown” in their Viewpoint published in last week’s Coastal View News (Vol. 27, No. 46). We already have a “classic, small beach town” ambience that would be irretrievably altered by this inappropriate development. If beach parking lot #3 is “underutilized” (aka wonderfully uncrowded), why does the developer boast this project “will add more parking”? The alleged revenues from this development will not go to our schools or to our library. In addition, we already have several perfect venues for nonprofit fundraising events, such as the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center courtyard and the gracious community garden. Additionally, the exciting upcoming project at 700 Linden Avenue just may be all the new “ambience” we need. (Personally, I hope Beach Liquor and their best burritos get to stay.) Most importantly, in the Surfliner Inn’s Viewpoint they incorrectly stated that the November 2022 potential ballot initiative would allow a five-story residential development to be constructed on this parking lot. Oh, please! By collecting signatures, the concerned Carpinterians’ intent is to save the space and leave it untouched, free from commercial buildings and to try and change the zoning to open space/recreational. Let’s keep Carp classic. Keep Carp special. Keep Carp small.

Vote will tell

The would-be developers of the Surfliner Inn repeatedly call for facts. They refer to Carpinteria as their city. A simple check of the 8,121 registered Carpinteria city voters reveals the undeniable fact that five of these six men are not registered to vote in the city of Carpinteria. Truth speaks louder than words. California may be your state, but Carpinteria surely isn’t your city. Additional indisputable truths include the fact that these developers do not own the very land in Carpinteria they propose developing. This land is owned by the public. Nor do they own the western 60 feet of our community garden their development would subsume, or the coastal open space parcel south of the tracks that they would pave. This too is all land owned by the public.

“The success of Santa Barbara’s five past gun buybacks exceeded all expectations. Starting in 2014, we collected 1,169 firearms, including 12 assault weapons in exchange for Smart & Final gift cards.”

––Toni Wellen

Not one of the developers would be personally affected by the negative traffic, health and safety impacts their development would impose upon the daily life of more than 700 residences in Carpinteria’s downtown beach neighborhood. As proposed, a minimum of 10 households would suffer a public parking lot being installed directly against their residences, something never before done in the city of Carpinteria. Is their quality of life of such little consequence that they should be forced to make sacrifices so that you may profit at their expense? The initiative petition being circulated among registered city voters will allow Carpinterians to decide upon the fate of our beach parking Lot #3 in the November 2022 election. As it should be!

Gun Buyback helps gun violence epidemic

We can’t seem to collectively and effectively treat the disease of gun violence in the United States. Over 40,000 of our friends and neighbors perish annually through gun accidents, murder and suicide. The U.S. wins the gold medal each and every year for gun deaths around the world. On the Central Coast, we are by no means insulated from mass shootings and horrific gun violence. Look no further than the Borderline Bar in Thousand Oaks (2018) and Isla Vista (2014) to find pain and suffering caused by mass shootings. Children in our public schools conduct

active shooter drills. We have a clear and urgent problem. One piece of good news is the Anonymous Gun Buyback that will be held at Earl Warren Showgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 21. Anyone can exchange a gun for a $100 gift card to Smart & Final per firearm. Those who turn in assault rifles will receive $200 gift cards. The origins of the gun or legitimacy of ownership is irrelevant at this event. The Coalition Against Gun Violence, Santa Barbara Police Department and city of Santa Barbara are organizing the buyback, and the city of Carpinteria donated $600 to help, because fewer unwanted guns in circulation will directly lead to fewer deaths. There’s no question about it. The service provided by the gun buyback will make our communities safer. Gift cards are icing on the cake.  In New Zealand, following the Christchurch Massacre of 2019, the national government instituted a gun buyback program that removed over 50,000 guns from homes and communities. Legislators acted swiftly to restrict gun ownership and outlaw military style assault weapons. What future tragedy will compel the United States to finally take decisive action to end gun violence? 

Every person lost to gun violence is a tragedy. Each death diminishes us. Where there are more guns, there are more gun deaths. Nearly 40 million guns were purchased in 2020 due to fears and anxiety regarding Covid-19. Statistics demonstrate that a gun in the home is 22 times more likely to be used against family members than as a defense. Further it is notable that people who purchased firearms during the pandemic are 70% more likely to be suicidal. Of the nearly 40,000 gun deaths annually in America, 60% are suicides. The economic cost of the gun violence epidemic in America is an astounding $280 billion dollars. Firearms cost lives, life-time injuries and funds that could be used to save lives. The success of Santa Barbara’s five past gun buybacks exceeded all expectations. Starting in 2014, we collected 1,169 firearms, including 12 assault weapons in exchange for Smart & Final gift cards. The city of Carpinteria has now joined The Coalition Against Gun Violence, the city of Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara Police Department organizations and individuals as sponsors of the sixth Anonymous Gun Buyback at Earl Warren Showgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 21, from 8 a.m. until noon. Donors will receive a $100 Smart & Final Gift Card for each handgun or rifle and $200 for an assault weapon. At CAGV’s first gun buyback press conference, a member of the press asked, “What would you consider a success?” Immediately Santa Barbara County Attorney Joyce Dudley said, “One gun. One gun could save a life.” More information regarding the buyback and how to turn in a firearm anonymously may be found at: sbcoalition.org.

Police arrest two people for weapons violations in Carpinteria

Police arrested a Carpinteria man and a woman from Arizona on Sunday for weapons violations following two separate traffic stops, according to a press release from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department. The woman, 23-year-old Brooke Harman, was first stopped around 7:37 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 8, for a cell phone violation near Palm Avenue and Eighth Street. After searching the vehicle, the deputy discovered a loaded .380 caliber handgun between the passenger seat and the center console; a 9mm AR-pistol with two loaded extended magazines was also located in the vehicle. “Further investigation found that Harman had illegally purchased one of the pistols in Arizona,” the press release stated. She was arrested and transported to the Santa Barbara County Jail for carrying a concealed firearm, the unlawful transfer of a firearm and carrying a loaded weapon in a vehicle. She was booked and released with zero bail.

The appeal was filed by Marc Chytilo on behalf of the Santa Barbara County Coalition for Responsible Cannabis (SBCRC). The project is a request for a Coastal Development Permit, Case No. 20CDP-00000-00079, and a Revised Development Plan, Case No. 20DVP-00000-00011, of the original Development Plan (approved November 17, 1969) to allow approximately 8.92 acres (388,472 square feet) of mixed light and nursery cannabis cultivation. Cultivation activities will occur within seven existing greenhouses. Processing will occur within Processing Building #1 (23,072 square feet) and Processing Building #2 (4,870 square feet). Onsite cultivation (as defined by the Article II Coastal Zoning Ordinance) will total approximately 9.56 acres. An approximately 23 ft. wide section of Processing Building #1 will be demolished to provide separation from Greenhouse #3. An approximately 2,000 square foot as built, boiler room and approximately 950 square foot irrigation room attached to Greenhouse #6 will be validated. The equipment associated with the Byers Odor Abatement System and an emergency generator will be validated under this permit.

School board rejects first bids for Whitney property, will require masks BY EVELYN SPENCE The Carpinteria Unified School District (CUSD) school board rejected the first two bids on the Whitney property, the first from Santa Barbara County and second from the Santa Barbara Agriculture and Farm Education Foundation, the latter of which aims to keep Sweet Wheel Farm and Flowers on the property. According to a school board report, a motion was made by CUSD Trustee Andy Sheaffer and seconded by Trustee Sally Green to reject both offers from the two negotiating parties. It passed in a closed session 5-0 vote. Several people spoke during public comment ahead of the board’s decision, including founder of Sweet Wheel, Leslie Person Ryan. Person Ryan has been a strong advocate for keeping Sweet Wheel in place, whose lease is set to expire in November of this year. Sweet Wheel Farm is currently fundraising to purchase the land. Person Ryan emphasized that Summerland has no grocery store, bringing up that in an emergency – such as the Jan. 9, 2018 Montecito mudslides – Summerland is put in a precarious position. She also went over the educational opportunities offered by the farm and highlighted the benefits of keeping the land agricultural rather than residential. “This is an important part of our community legacy that you can be part of,” Person Ryan said. “Our farm is dedicated to organic, pesticide-free and local produce,” she added. “There is no grocery store in Summerland. We use hyper organic practices out of respect for the community and its land and the health of our citizens.” Jasmine Jefferies, reading on behalf of a 17-year-old named Melody who lives in Summerland, said Melody couldn’t be at the meeting tonight, but still wanted to share her statement. “Sweet Wheel Farm and Flowers has been a blessing to my family and has kept our stomachs full,” the statement read. “My mother is a single mom (...). Thanks to Leslie we now have access to fresh produce. We are cooking and making meals together which has brought my family closer.” Sweet Wheel Farm’s legal counsel Marc Chytilo, an environmental law attorney who recently took a victory in saving the San Marcos Foothills from being developed, also spoke during the public comment portion of the meeting, urging the school board to accept the bid. “There’s a number of people that are putting shoulder to the wheel to build the capacity and to bring the effort together so that the proposal that we put forward to you will be satisfied,” he said. “We will be able to accomplish with certainty the significant benefits that the foundation’s proposal has offered.”

ForestWatch joins movement to re-list gray wolves as “endangered”

CVN REPORT

ForestWatch and a coalition of 70 conservation, Indigenous and animal welfare groups have filed a formal petition with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to re-list the gray wolf as an endangered species throughout the American West under the Endangered Species Act. The groups cited inadequate protections and a lack of viable populations of wolves in California and all other western states. The re-listing petition comes in the wake of new laws passed in Idaho and Montana to radically reduce wolf populations below biologically appropriate levels. “Wolves have been extinct in California since the 1920s and are entirely missing from the landscape or perilously close to extinction in other western states,” said Los Padres ForestWatch Director of Advocacy Rebecca August. “In the lands surrounding Yellowstone National Park, where there has been a decades-long effort to reestablish gray wolves, states have revoked hunting and trapping regulations, advancing the possible extermination of these animals.” The gray wolf (Canis lupus) was first listed under the Endangered Species Act in 1974 when there were just 1,000 indi-

Last year, with populations hovering around just 6,000, the Trump administration stripped federal protections. The petition highlights scientific findings of multiple threats facing wolves in

Covid-19 surges, 479 new cases last week

As of Aug. 5, 52.7% of the county is now fully vaccinated, according to the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department. The county has administrated 491,079 total vaccine doses; 250,531 first doses, 21,011 single doses and 217,987 second doses. Case counts, however, are on the rise, with 459 new cases during the week of July 31 and Aug. 5. Active cases were at 479, with two new deaths and 34 hospitalizations. In total, the county has seen 36,200 Covid-19 cases and 464 total deaths. Just last week, the county mandated that all residents wear masks again while they are indoors, in order to prevent the spread of the highly infectious Covid-19 delta variant. Additionally, all visitors to Cottage Hospital must either be vaccinated or show proof of a negative Covid-19 test, per a California public health order. All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must still wear masks. The county announced last week that the delta variant is of “great concern” within Santa Barbara County and in California. “As of the end of July, Santa Barbara County is in the midst of another surge of Covid-19 with daily new cases increasing to over 15 per 100,000 residents and a positivity rate of 7.2%. The vast majority of these cases are attributed to the Delta variant and, 18–29-year-olds make up the majority of these cases,” Dr. Henning Ansorg said in a release from Public Health. He added that currently, more Covid-19 cases are being detected in the southern part of the county, compared to earlier in the pandemic, when more of the new infections came from the northern part of the county. Ansorg emphasized that while vaccinated people are protected from serious effects of Covid-19 – with the county typically seeing flu-like symptoms in

the West, including unregulated hunting in several states, poaching, genetic problems associated with low population levels, fragmented habitats and disease outbreaks that strike at random and have the potential to reduce populations below critical thresholds. The petition calls upon the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect wolves in the West as a distinct population segment. The gray wolf is native to California and has been listed under its endangered species act since 2014. There has been no effort to reestablish wolves in the state, but several individuals have migrated south from Oregon and three wolf packs have been identified in northern California. The Beckwourth Pack was reported in Plumas County as recently as June. In April of this year, a male yearling known as OR-93 was the first wolf to appear on the Central Coast in a century, having traveled roughly 1,000 miles from his home with the White River pack in northern Oregon. Tracked by U.S. Fish and Wildlife through a radio collar fitted in 2020, OR-93 entered California in January and February in Modoc County and began his journey southward. In March, the young

wolf, followed by a growing fanbase on Facebook and Instagram, crossed Highway 99 and Interstate 5 in San Benito County. His last collar transmission was from San Luis Obispo County on April 5. His status is currently unknown. “The wolf known as OR-93’s spectacular journey from Oregon to California’s Central Coast – until wildlife officials were no longer able to track his location – demonstrated that not only is there potential for gray wolves to once again call California home but that the species is in urgent need of better protections across its range,” said Los Padres ForestWatch conservation director Bryant Baker. The groups’ petition comes in the wake of a groundswell of public recognition that wolves deserve to be listed under the Endangered Species Act, and that some anti-conservation state governments are actively undermining wolf recovery in the lower 48 states. Over 120 Indigenous tribes and groups signed a wolf treaty calling for federal protection, and a documentary short film by the Global Indigenous Council highlighting the cultural importance of wolves to Indigenous peoples was recently released. Wolves are considered a keystone species, meaning their disappearance can have consequences that cascade throughout an ecosystem to which they are native. One major benefit of robust wolf populations is natural regulation of populations of elk, deer and other large mammals. For example, wolf reintroduction in the Yellowstone area, which began in the 1930s, has reduced the regional coyote population by 50%, increased riparian areas that had been damaged by overgrazing, and has markedly increased biodiversity and stabilized the ecosystem. “As our region’s wildlife are under the increasing pressure of a changing climate, re-establishing the balance that the grey wolf once brought to the landscape will give our ecosystems a fighting chance,” said August. “While the few wolves that have made it to California are protected, the state is no island. It’s clear that their survival here is too fragile to withstand the decimation that is taking place in other states.”

He said 1 in 7 new cases are being seen in vaccinated persons within the county, and that the majority of hospitalizations are those who are unvaccinated.

Downtown’s front of house makes great first impressions PHOTOS BY DEBRA HERRICK

On any given day, a stroll along Carpinteria’s downtown corridor brings friendly faces to the fore. From gas stations to fine dining, employees working the front of house are making visitors and customers feel welcome. This week, we get to know a handful of Carpinteria’s first impression makers.

Summer brings on-the-job training for Eureka! girls BY DEBRA HERRICK

This summer, teens in Girls Inc. of Carpinteria’s Eureka! program were placed throughout the county for on-thejob training and professional development. Girls held externships at nonprofits, businesses and professional offices including Planned Parenthood, Alarcon Legal, Carpinteria Library and the office of Supervisor Das Williams. For some girls, the experience is pivotal in helping them shape and define their education and career goals. Rising Carpinteria High junior Julianna Ornelas worked in the district’s special education preschool summer program. While it was Ornelas’ first experience with special education, she said she had fun and learned ways to be consistent in helping students meet their targets. “I really learned something from each of the kids I worked with, and I feel like my experience working with CUSD

helped me answer questions about my future like what jobs I was interested in and what I wanted to learn in school,” Ornelas said, noting that she learned a lot from the kids and the staff. Workplace learning included more than how to do the job and Ornelas was excited to be part of the workplace culture, where she would exchange Starbucks orders with coworkers and receive other support from the social dynamics of work. “I really appreciated the help because we work with preschoolers and that could be overwhelming at times. We always ended the day with new experiences and positive mindsets, and I’m really glad my mentor Karla was able to give me this opportunity because it really helped bring me one big step closer to my future,” Ornelas said. Externships are held each summer and are part of Eureka!’s five-year, college-bound program.

Carpinteria High School rising sophomore Alejandra Lira externed at the Carpinteria Arts Center, where she helped the organization with summer camps and art shows.

Eureka! teen Isabel Nunez externed at The Food Liaison this summer. Café owners Nirasha and Jason Rodriguez said she was great at “keeping customers happy.”

Students in Carpinteria Unified’s special education extended-year program received extra help this summer from Juliana Ornelas, who externed in the preschool classroom.

Marisol externed at the Carpinteria Children’s Project. Marisol learned the ropes in several departments at the center, including foodbank distribution, the front office and the preschool.

CLUB SCENE Morning Rotary Club invites Carpinteria historian to speak

Carpinteria Morning Rotary Club invited Dr. James Campos, author of Carpinteria history and former Main School principal, to speak about the origins of the first Japanese immigrants to the Carpinteria area, the Fukasawa and Ota families.

ARTCETRA

Curtis Studio of Dance announces fall classes

M AT T D U N C A N Lately, I’ve found myself wondering what it will be like to do things that I haven’t done – and couldn’t do – since the pandemic began. What will it be like to sit inside a restaurant? Eat in someone else’s house? Go to the movies? I wondered: Will it be awkward? Will I feel anxious? Or will I snap back to normal, business as usual? Last week, I went to the movie theater for the first time in over a year. It was not what I expected, though I don’t think Covid-19 can be blamed. My mom and I took my kids – ages three, five and eight – to see “Space Jam 2” (their choice). After about 30 minutes of enduring the movie’s frantic plot and Lebron James’ stiff, phony acting, my five-year-old announced, “I don’t like this movie.” Seeing as we had the same verdict, I shuffled him over to the only other kid-friendly movie on offer: “Boss Baby: The Family Business.” I then proceeded to zone out for the next hour and a half as talking babies smashed, hit, chased, screamed and shot at each other. I tuned in for the touching ending, but the rest is mostly a blur. So after a year of cinematic quarantine, my first trip to the theater yielded no review-generating material. I did, however, later see another movie worth reviewing – a movie kind of about the pandemic and about being stuck inside, which, ironically, hit the theaters for a short run in late July after being on Netflix since May: Bo Burnham’s “Inside.” Burnham started his comedy career at 16 as a YouTube sensation. His trademark is to mix music into his comedy; he writes and performs witty songs on the piano about everything from race to love to gender to social media to mental health. “Inside” takes place inside during the pandemic and in a single room. Burnham, like everyone else, is stuck inside, and this is his outlet. The movie features lighthearted songs like “FaceTime with My Mom (Tonight)” and “White Woman’s Instagram,” but also darker pieces about depression, politics and economics. In between, Burnham offers scattered commentary about life in quarantine – about how much it sucks, how frustrating the world is, how annoying people are, and again how much quarantine sucks. Some of the songs in “Inside” are pretty funny. There’s “Bezos I” in which Burnham sarcastically cheers on Amazon owner Jeff Bezos to (among other things) suck the blood of Zuckerberg, Gates and

CVN

Buffett. Then there’s “Problematic” in which he self-consciously confesses to all of the (by today’s standards) “problematic” things he’s done in the past. And then there are plenty of other fun songs like “Welcome to the Internet,” “Unpaid Intern” and “How the World Works.” While the songs of “Inside” are worth the watch, I was less fond of the content in between. A rich 30-year-old with no kids to wrangle and no “essential” work to stress over, moans and groans about life in the pandemic. Spare me. Burnham acts as if he bears the weight of the world on his shoulders. Except he doesn’t. At all. Burnham is very self-aware of these dynamics. He constantly brings up his privilege, lack of special insight, and even hypocrisy in ways that on the face of it are self-undermining but are clearly aimed at defusing the criticism. I don’t mean to minimize the stress and anxiety that anyone feels during the pandemic – including those who are closer to Burnham’s position. It’s just that, having spent the last year and a half going through it myself, I have limited appetite for listening to someone else whine about it. I suppose some people – maybe even a lot of people – feel that Burnham is giving voice to their feelings, and they find that cathartic and enjoyable. Fair enough. But there’s a fine line between giving voice to misery and wallowing in it, and I found Burnham’s moping around excessive and annoying. Still, some of the songs are pretty funny. So maybe it’s worth it. Everyone else (especially the critics) seems to think so. “Inside” is rated TV-MA. Matt Duncan, a former Coastal View News editor, has taken physical but not emotional leave from Carpinteria to be a philosophy professor at Rhode Island College. In his free time from philosophizing, Duncan enjoys chasing his kids around, watching movies and updating his movie review blog, duncansreeldeal.blogspot.com.

Still mining the past

CVN

IT’S ALL SURFING CHRISTIAN BEAMISH Very occasionally, the seemingly endless scrolling I do on Instagram reveals something worthwhile. One was a recent post from Australian surfer Dave Rastovich and his wife Lauren Hill for their Waterpeople podcast, featuring Professor Isaiah Helekunihi Walker of Brigham Young University, Oahu. His book, “Waves of Resistance – Surfing and History in Twentieth-Century Hawai’i” (2011, University of Hawai’i Press), provides context for the formation of the Hui O He’e Nalu surf club in 1976. “Da Hui,” as the club is sometimes referred to in Hawai’i (to borrow the pidgin style of speech), formed “to preserve Native Hawaiian control over the waves of the North Shore,” Walker writes in introduction. Professor Walker then identifies the key historical events that fueled Native Hawaiian activism, starting with the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy and leading, ultimately, to statehood for the former kingdom. The disruption to Hawaiian society by American interests was profound, and in many ways traumatic. Hundreds of thousands of Hawaiians died in the first 50-years of contact, first with Captain Cook, then with many thousands of sailing ships. Simple diseases that Europeans had evolved to survive wreaked havoc among indigenous populations. A popular notion, Professor Walker notes, is that American missionary disapproval of the Hawaiian art of surfing led to its virtual demise. According to some historians, surfing almost faded out completely only to be saved by Duke Kahanamoku and then continued on by the Americans and Australians. While it is true that Hawaiian life was forever changed by annexation – he’e nalu, the ancient art of surfing – never went away for the Hawaiian surfers who survived the impacts upon their culture. Duke Kahanamoku did of course spread Aloha and surfing knowledge via his many wave riding demonstrations around the world and Olympic swimming victories, and his influence upon all us haole surfers is immeasurable. From Duke’s personal 16-foot plank, to the Hot Curl, the Fish, and the three-fin Thruster, modern surfing owes its existence to Hawai’i and to Kahanamoku. But in Hawai’i, apart from Duke Kahanamoku’s international efforts as an ambassador of surfing, ka po’ina nalu (the surf zone), Walker writes, always remained “a place where Hawaiians felt free, developed Native identities, and thwarted foreign domination.” A renaissance of Native Hawaiian cultural practices occurred in the 1970s, perhaps most visibly in the formation of the Polynesian Voyaging Society and the construction of Hokule’a, the traditional voyaging canoe that proved unequivocally that Polynesian seafarers intentionally explored and populated the entire Pacific. The Hui O He’e Nalu was also formed in this period in response to ever-increasing professional surfing events that closed access to the best waves of Oahu’s North Shore to non-competitors.

Eddie Aikau embodied the longstanding traditions of Hawaiian surfing and voyaging. Stories of the Hui in their black shorts terrorizing visiting surfers are woven into the lore of the North Shore and perpetuated in films like Blue Crush and North Shore. And although punch-ups and intimidation have occurred, the balance sheet of wealth and real estate holdings (the ultimate manifestations of power) on the North Shore definitely favors non-Native “Hawaiians.” Devastation wrought by foreign diseases, the usurping of Hawaiian sovereignty supported by bayonet-wielding U.S. Marines in 1893, and the subsequent development of modern Hawai’i, left many Hawaiians destitute in their own land. Yet “Hawaiian-ness” remained, and remains, in culture and in the art of surfing. And there are of course a great many Hawaiians who, like their ancestors, utilize every new technology and operate effectively in contemporary, cosmopolitan society. Focusing only on the negative impacts of Westernization risks characterizing indigenous peoples as mere victims lacking agency in their own affairs. But whether or not the transformation of the world was inevitable – from local and unique, to global and homogenous – violence permeates history. Dr. Martin Luther

King said, “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” The question of how, or if it’s even possible, to address the wrongs of the past gets tangled up in politics. Black Lives Matter is deemed “Marxist” by some on the right, as is the prospect of teaching Critical Race Theory (often completely misunderstood by the people most opposed to it). Regarding Hawai’i and the wider Pacific, can we not move in the direction of appreciation and preservation of culture and creation? The climate crisis is the natural consequence of industrialization. As perfectly illustrated in the book “Guns, Germs, and Steel – The Fates of Human Societies” (1997, Norton Books), Western (i.e. European and European-American) domination of the world is not the result of inherent superiority, but of circumstance. Now is the time to incorporate older and less energy-intensive ways of living; to take note of the successful, local,

DAN MERKEL

strategies of indigenous people to sustain our living planet; to utilize science and technology to greatly reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. And just as Hawaiian surfers banded together to assert their birthright in ka po’ina nalu on the North Shore in the 1970s, so can we demand a more-just and healthy society. And also go surfing in reverence and gratitude for the great Hawaiian artform. Christian Beamish took leave of his position at Coastal View News in October 2020, to pursue his surfboard business, “Surfboards California,” full time. He continues his monthly column. The former Associate Editor of The Surfer’s Journal, Beamish is also the author of “Voyage of the Cormorant” (Patagonia Books, 2012) about his single-handed expedition down the coast of Baja California by sail and oar in his self-built Shetland Isle beach boat. He lives with his wife and two children in Carpinteria.

THROWBACK

On eternal patrol BY LOU PANIZZON

This story, like many from my childhood in Carpinteria, begins and ends on 8th Street. Bob Franco, my lifelong friend, also grew up on 8th Street. After school, we would sometimes go to Bob’s grandmother’s house to visit and have an afternoon snack. The Franco family moved to the United States from Mexico just after the start of the Mexican Revolution in 1910. Bob’s grandmother, Crescenda (Chencha), moved to her home on 8th Street in the early 1950s. On a bureau in the living room of Chencha’s house was a picture of a young man in a sailor’s uniform. I was told he died in the war (WWII). I was always curious about the circumstances that led to his death. He was Bob’s uncle, Peter Franco. Peter was born on May 29, 1918, in Sonora, Arizona, and graduated from Carpinteria High School in 1937. An outstanding track athlete, Peter was the first Carpinteria Warrior to run in three consecutive CIF SS Finals. In 1935, he finished third in the Class C 660-yard run. He became a CIF champion in 1936 by winning the Class B 1320-yard run in a time of 3:23.8. As a senior, he finished third in the CIF SS Finals 1320-yard run. In the Navy, Peter was a Motor Machinist’s Mate, Second Class serving on the submarine USS Seawolf, one of the most recognized in the history of undersea warfare. The ship received 13 battle stars during its WWII service. The USS Seawolf (SS-197) memorial states: “On 3 October 1944, delivering supplies and army personnel on her fifteenth war patrol, Seawolf ran into heavy seas that slowed down her passage by one day. A U.S. destroyer, not having received word of Seawolf’s delay, launched a lethal depth charge attack on what she believed to be an enemy submarine. In an unfortunate case of mistaken identity, Seawolf’s career was ended abruptly, as were the lives of her 82 valiant fighting men. No other submarine or crew in the Pacific fought longer or harder.” This last voyage of the Seawolf was a special mission to photograph possible landing beaches for the upcoming amphibious assault on the island of Peleliu in the Philippines. Eighty-two

crew members and 17 Army personnel perished. The Seawolf was sunk in error by Destroyer Escort USS Rowell just north of Morotai between the Philippine Islands and Indonesia. In December 1944, Mrs. Crescenda Franco, a widow living in the Cramer tract in Carpinteria, was notified by the War Department that the USS Seawolf was listed by the Navy as “overdue and presumed lost.” The Franco family – Jess, Joseph, Carol, Mary, Ernest, Esperanza and their mother – became a Gold Star Family, a title none of them wanted. When a submarine leaves port on a mission and does not return, it is said to be on “Eternal Patrol.” The Franco family members take great pride in their uncle Peter. Peter Valdivia (deceased), the son of Carol Franco Valdivia, is named after his uncle Peter and also served in the Navy as a submariner. Teresa (Teddy) Franco Caudillo, the eldest of the nieces and nephews, is the custodian of Peter’s awards and memorabilia, and like all Franco family members, is quick to share her pride and respect for Uncle Peter on Eternal Patrol.

In 1936, Peter Franco was the CIF 1320 Champion on the Carpinteria High School team. He was a Motor Machinist’s Mate, Second Class.

No crosses mark the ocean waves, No monument of stone. No roses grow on sailor’s graves The Sailor rests alone. His tributes are the sea gulls’ sweeps, Forever wild and free, And teardrops that his sweetheart weeps To mingle with the sea. (Naval Ode, unknown author)

8th Street Heroes

Another Carpinterian killed by “friendly fire” was Francis “Fritz” Hebel. His plane was downed by anti-aircraft fire over Pearl Harbor on the evening of Dec. 7, 1941. His family residence was on 8th Street. Peter’s mother moved to 8th street in the l950s, where she passed away on March 28, 1973. Lou Panizzon, who grew up on 8th Street, was wounded by “friendly fire” near the Loc Ninh airstrip in Vietnam in 1968. The late Richard “Boston” Franco, Bob Franco’s brother and Peter’s nephew who also resided on 8th Street, helped load Lou on to the Medevac helicopter that flew him to a hospital in Saigon.

CIF Commissioner previews changes ahead of 2021-2022 athletics BY RYAN P. CRUZ

With the school year just weeks away, fall sports are gearing up for a full slate of sports, after a scaled-back athletics schedule during the 2020-2021 school year. CIF Southern Section commissioner Rob Wigod announced a few changes heading into the new sports year, with the biggest changes surrounding a new playoff system for football that is aimed at being more equitable by grouping teams into playoff divisions after the regular season, instead of before. “Once the season starts, weekly power rankings will be available on calpreps. com,” said Wigod. “Which will allow you to follow the progress of your team’s ranking from week 0 through week 10.” This new system means teams will be judged solely by how they performed during this season; up until now the previous year’s schedule determined the next year’s division, which meant some teams were held to a different standard and missed the playoffs due to premature designation. Wigod said he hopes this new system could lead to other CIF sports updating their playoff divisions to a similar system. “We are very excited to see this play out,” he said. “This takes into account things like a school that had a great senior class, and those student-athletes are gone, and now that team is in a higher division, and they don’t have much of a team left that was so successful.” He said the system will also account for schools with multiple transfers who would have been playing in a lower divi-

sion in the old system. Another new addition is the approval of beach volleyball to this year’s CIFapproved sports. “We are proud to welcome beach volleyball this year,” Wigod said. “We are excited for the growth and development of that sport in the time ahead.” He is encouraging schools to offer the sport in order to reach the 20% of member schools necessary to hold a Southern Section Championship in that sport. “Our goals for year one is to make sure we reach that minimum,” he said. Carpinteria does not have a beach volleyball team for this year, but with the full calendar of sports in place for the upcoming seasons, there are a few programs looking to repeat the success from last year’s shortened schedule. The Warriors boys water polo team is returning with a strong core unit, and boys swimming is looking to match its stellar 2021 season, which ended in a Citrus Coast league title and the programs first-ever boys CIF swim title. Information on the plans for public attendance for sporting events will be updated as the season approaches, but CIF refers schools to work with the California Department of Public Health and local county health department guidelines for capacity limits, social distancing, mask wearing and other guidelines for safe in-person events. Carpinteria football is playing its first game on the road on Friday, Aug. 27 at Morro Bay, and its first home game against Channel Islands on Sept. 10.

Over $500k in donations to skatepark Speed wobbles be damned. Carpinteria Skate Foundation has raised over $500,000 since its ceremonial groundbreaking on International Go Skate Day, June 21. At this downhill clip – only $150,000 more needed to build the park – the Carpinteria Skatepark could break ground as soon as this October and be ready to welcome skaters by spring of 2022. Donors big and small have stepped up and community partners have held a flurry of fundraising events, all with the singular theme, “Let’s build this park in 2021.” Even with the great success of this summer’s fundraising campaign, there have been challenges. When the big push to build the park was reinvigorated this spring, organizers had their sights set on the goal of $1.2 million dollars to cover all costs to build the park. Then in July the estimate grew to $1.5 million and moved the goalposts that much further. The Food Liaison challenged the community with its annual Christmas in July fundraiser in late July and brought in two dozen $1,000 pledges to Carpinteria Skatepark. Since June, Carpinteria Skate Foundation has sold over $15,000 in engraved bricks that will be installed

at the park, and community donors can still purchase 300 available bricks at carpskatepark.org. “It has been humbling and impressive to see so much fundraising driven by community donors,” said Julia Mayer, a Carpinteria Skate Foundation board member. “People want to see this park built and are investing because they have seen the plans and we realize our community is underserved when it comes to healthy things for kids to do. A couple more angel donors can easily make Carpinteria home to a world-class skatepark.” Bigger ticket donors have been incentivized to invest in the park by being recognized on features like the Anacapa Arch and Flow Bowl, both customized for Carpinteria Skatepark by designers at Dreamland Skateparks. Hans and Barry Brand, the Danny Kwok Family, Lynda Fairly and Richard Finkley, Reality Church, CARP Growers and the Suzanne Duca Foundation have already invested in some of the park’s biggest features. To keep the momentum going, Carpinteria Skate Foundation will continue to partner with businesses and be present at events. Island Brewing Company

The Tokyo Olympics just concluded with the first ever skateboarding medalists taking the podium, bringing a long beloved sport securely into the mainstream. Carpinteria Skate Foundation’s founders and board members have dreamt of Carpinteria Skatepark since they were teenagers in the 1990s. They formed a nonprofit and started raising funds in 2009 and along the way had plans drafted and permits approved by

the city of Carpinteria, which is a partner on the project. The foundation has said the time is now. “We spent a year with no school and no sports, and kids were still getting the police called on them for skateboarding. Our kids deserve a place to be themselves, to have fun, to be with their peers,” said Mayer. “Skateboarding is an incredible act of fun and of self-expression. I encourage everyone to push around on a skateboard and you will quickly realize how important fun is for human life.”

Junior Guards compete in annual beach triathlon

Carpinteria’s Junior Guards competed in the annual “swim-paddle-run” triathlon at Carpinteria State Beach on Wednesday, Aug. 4. The event allows the young lifeguards to test their skills in the ocean and on the sand as they compete for pride and bragging rights against their peers.

“Amatuer Skaters” film to premiere at Alcazar fundraiser on Monday

This Monday, the “summer of skating” continues in Carpinteria, with another movie night at the Alcazar Theatre – only this time, the film stars four local skaters who will make their big screen debut at the screening. “Amatuer Skaters,” a documentary directed by Shemshu J. Lefevre, features Isaac Relis, Khalil Aguilar, Rowan Brownlee and Kai Tautrim, and follows them as they navigate the world of skateboarding. “Pushing themselves to be the best they can, they endure many physical and emotional obstacles and grow as both skaters and people,” according to a description from the film’s Kickstarter page. The screening will be a sneak preview before the movie makes its world premiere in just a couple weeks. It was organized by Carpinteria Skate Foundation. The skatepark’s Instagram page advertised the event, saying “this documentary/skate film is going to be out of control.” Tickets will be $10 and include a raffle ticket. All proceeds and donations go towards the new skatepark. Foundation board member Julia Mayer said the skatepark is around $150,000 away from its final goal and is getting closer each week. We are working hard on our promise to get this park built this year,” Mayer said. For more information, check carpskatepark.org or the skatepark’s Instagram profile, @carp_skatepark.
