Teaching credentials revoked from school board candidate in 2013 BY JUN STARKEY

Candidate Nuh Kimbwala said he was unfairly treated

Carpinteria Unified School Board of Trustees candidate Nuh Kimbwala had his teaching credentials revoked in 2013 after an incident at Harding School, where he worked and was removed as a principal during the year prior. In April 2013, the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) revoked Kimbwala’s teaching credentials, and rejected his appeal the following year, the CTC confirmed to CVN. The organization, which handles educator licensing and credentialing, would not confirm why Kimbwala’s credentials were revoked, stating that the reason was not “considered public information.” Kimbwala was hired as principal of Harding School at the Santa Barbara Elementary School District in August 2012. The Santa Barbara Police Department confirmed to CVN that a reporting party had alleged a student was “pushed forcefully by the principal” in November 2012. According to a summary of the incident provided by the police department to CVN, no injuries were reported, and the case was closed. Kimbwala was placed on administrative leave during the investigation. The

Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office declined to press charges. The Santa Barbara Unified School District then paid him for the remainder of his contract before removing him from his position. In a statement to CVN, Kimbwala said he had done nothing wrong, and that his removal from Harding and loss of his credentials were a miscarriage of justice. “There is simply no documentary evidence that I have ever done anything inappropriate,” he said. “Allegations that were slung and never defended by those who flung them.” According to Kimbwala, the incident involved a student having a “multiple hour behavioral crisis” which the district was not prepared to handle. He said the incident was as a failing on the district’s part to properly prepare and care for special needs students, and further claimed

the district did not provide an “evaluation or corrective plan” as negotiated in his contract. Kimbwala said he was unfairly persecuted by the district and the CTC. “These simple facts lead me to conclude that my race, gender and continued advocacy have more to do with my credentials being and remaining revoked than any objective, systematic, legal precedent or documented allegations and outcomes,” he said. Kimbwala is running against Eric Bridgford for the Summerland School, or trustee area 1, seat on the Carpinteria Unified School District Board of Trustees. He is an active volunteer with Summerland organizations, including Summerland School, the Summerland homeowners association and the Carpinteria Valley Little League, he told CVN.

CITY BEAT Public urges action on Parking Lot #1 safety issues

4  Thursday, October 13, 2022

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

Council approves several short-term, long-term solutions

BY EVELYN SPENCE The Carpinteria City Council acted Monday night in response to an email campaign and community concerns with Parking Lot #1, where local business owners, employees and community members said they have been harassed and intimidated while working and visiting the businesses that border the lot. This was prompted, in part, by the robbery and kidnapping that occurred in that lot in late August, when a victim was reportedly forced into a vehicle and taken to a nearby bank, where they were forced to withdraw large amounts of money. As of last reporting, no suspects have been arrested. But on Monday night, business owners – including Councilmember Natalia Alarcon’s sister, Caroline Alarcon – spoke on several other safety issues with the lot, citing instances with men reportedly parking and staring into a local dance studio facing the lot while classes took place, and homeless community members setting up camp in the lot’s restroom. “(There are) little things that added up to bigger things,” Caroline, owner of Reliant Notary Services and one of the locals who led the email campaign to the city, said Monday. “We’re concerned about our employees that come in and out,” she added, citing an incident where her sister was “harassed and chased” while in the lot. Mike Pollard, owner of a real estate management business facing the lot, said he has particular concerns about homeless persons in the lot. When the bathroom in the lot is locked, as it typically is overnight, “They tend to find my building (to relieve themselves) and it’s really disgusting,” he said. “They use the landscape area, they use the breezeway.” City staff presented several long-term and short-term options to the council. Short-term solutions include changing light bulbs; establishing signs reiterating prohibited overnight parking; increasing law and code enforcement patrols in the area; adding signs encouraging members of the public to report suspicious activity

Parking Lot #1 at Ninth Street and Elm Avenue is a source of repeated safety issues, community members shared Monday. and restroom issues; adding trash cans to the west side of the lot and trimming the trees to improve lighting. Law and code enforcement patrols have already increased, city staff said. Long-term options presented include redesigning Parking Lot #1, establishing a safe parking program within city limits – not specifically at Parking Lot #1 – improving Carpinteria’s homeless response, installing a portable restroom as a pilot program and reactivating the city’s downtown business advisory board. Redesigning Parking Lot #1 is already on the city’s agenda as a future capital project, staff said, although it is not bud-

City signs new police agreement, to the tune of $5 million BY EVELYN SPENCE

The Fiscal Year 2022-2023 cost for Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office services will be $5,056,981, as approved by the council at Monday night’s meeting. This is a $220,996 negotiated reduction from original 2022-2023 estimates, after the city and the county of Santa Barbara entered into good-faith negotiations earlier this year. As the city of Carpinteria does not have its own police force, it contracts out services from the Sheriff’s Office, through the county of Santa Barbara, and has done so since 1991. The new agreement is effective July 1, 2022. Under the new agreement – approved unanimously by the council – both the city and the county agree to withdraw any Public Records Requests related to the dispute and have agreed not to sue each other in matters related to Fiscal Year 2022-2023 police services costs.

In other city council news… Avofest sees 137 parking citations

During the California Avocado Festival, which took place from Sept. 30 – Oct. 2, police issued 137 parking citations, Durflinger said Monday. He added that the city’s Public Works Department said set up and breakdown went well.

The city first launched its Fiscal Year 2022-2023 contract dispute in January 2022, after the county announced a second sharp increase in the cost of police services and consultant Rus Branson told the council there “hasn’t been a static cost of patrol.” This was the second year in a row the city had voted to dispute the cost of police services, after the city was hit with an estimated $1.8 million, or a 37% increase, in the cost of services in February 2021. The city of Carpinteria was not the only Santa Barbara County city to dispute the cost of police services over the past two years. Three of the other cities – Goleta, Buellton and Solvang – each came to their own cost agreements with the county, at $9.5 million, $2.6 million and $2.3 million respectively.

The city will paint red curb along the east side of Cravens Lane, from the northern city limits to approximately 500 feet south of city limits, and install red curb along the 1200 block of Santa Monica Road.

The council awarded the RPM Design Group the contract for consulting design services for the Franklin Creek Trail improvement project on Monday. The group was the only business to bid on the project. It will cost the city $372,190; $275,188 of that comes from Measure A grant funds, through the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments. Public Works Director John Ilasin said RPM has done similar trail work throughout the tri-county and is familiar with Measure A grant funds. He added that this trail could potentially tie into the future coastal trail in the area. “I’m happy to see this before us,” Councilmember Gregg A. Carty said.

Thomas Edward Ciriacks 08/10/1937 – 09/25/2022

Thomas Edward Ciriacks passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, Sept. 25, 2022. His long life was filled with learning, doing and providing for family. He accomplished much in his 85 years on this planet, and we lost precious insights and wisdom in this world with his passing. Tom’s father Ruben was an Army Lieutenant Colonel, which necessitated a nomadic lifestyle and succession of new schools and fleeting friendships in his youth. By Tom’s own telling, this transitory existence affected him deeply. The longest stretches of his early years were split between California (Riverside) and Wisconsin (Whitefish Bay and Milwaukee). Memories of Riverside include serving as an altar boy in the local Catholic Church and performing chores for a neighboring rancher, including cleaning chicken coops and exercising horses. Upon returning to Wisconsin, Tom helped out at his grandparent’s store and watched over his younger siblings. Living on the Milwaukee’s North Side, Tom attended Peckham Junior High and Washington High School (Class of 1955). After graduating, Tom briefly lived in Hawaii with his father and younger brothers. During his island tenure he picked pineapples in the fields, and endured taunting as a “Haole” to earn grocery money. Tom boldly enlisted in the Army in August 1955. He described this experience to his children throughout his lifetime: “I picked pineapples hunched over in the hot sun so that my brothers and I could have milk and so they could afford to get on a boat back to the mainland, then I joined the Army to get off that island; it was the only way.” This was a highly effective maneuver when deployed in response to any of his six children airing a grievance; if his goal was to raise a brood of doers and non-complainers, he attained it. Tom proudly served as an artilleryman (distinguished as an expert marksman) and medic in the U.S. Army, frequently recounting the more harrowing aspects of training when stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Upon discharge, he continued his service as a reservist in the Air National Guard. On Jan. 3, 1959, our world was changed forever when Tom married his match,

the inestimable Colleen Mary Curley (daughter of Rosemary Curley and Nee McLaughlin). Colleen was literally the girl next door who was known to write his name in her ice cream in their youth. Throughout their long-spirited partnership together, Colleen kept him on his toes. Within days of their union, Tom got his first break with his initial hire as a technician at AC Spark Plug and worked his way over the next 21 years into a leadership role in its manufacturing division in Oak Creek. His proudest moment at AC was the contribution his team made to the Apollo 11 mission and their delivery to NASA of the guidance system for the Lunar Landing Module. Tom often took the road less traveled in his various paths to success. For example, the Milwaukee School of Engineering awarded Tom his first college degree in 1975, a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management, six years after the last of his and Colleen’s six children was born. A lifelong learner, he then went on to achieve his MBA from Golden Gate University in 1980. Tom was well-known as a “gadget” guy, reflecting his innate appreciation for innovation; he was first in line to purchase a new programmable calculator for school, a 4-function Texas Instruments Radio Shack Special for $99. He wore out the keys and magnetic programming strips in short order. He was naturally drawn to technology and collected laser discs, computers, software, and most anything that had a battery to produce a tantalizing beam of light. In 1977 (Jimmy Carter, Bee Gees, Star Wars, Radio Shack’s TRS-80 Micro Computer) he was promoted to Manufacturing Manager of Operations at Delco Electronics. This professional step-up required a bold cross-country relocation to Santa Barbara, California, the execution of which was planned as a camping trip. This unique approach was really designed to avoid the culture shock awaiting his kids in California by sneaking up on it slowly and deliberately, mile-by-mile on the adventure of a lifetime. This strategy was “Pure Tom.” In fact, that Summer of ‘77 changed everything for his clan and is still regaled for its epic cross-country adventures that included stays in several national parks, interactions with alligators, a visit to The Badlands, and a hand-drawn portrait of Tom by a San Francisco street vendor who likened his regal good looks to an Italian prince (right before asking him for a lot of money for his efforts). In 14 days, the exhausted but excited travelers reached their new community, the lovely humble town of Carpinteria, and everything was new and somehow that seemed ok because everything over the last six weeks was brand new and this was not the end of the adventure – it was just the next adventure. Much later it was gleaned that this itinerary was a retracing of a previous trip experienced in his youth with his

own father and brothers, only this had a lot more stops for ice cream. Tom thrived in his reacquaintance with California and eventually was recruited by rival Raytheon. Over the next 25 years he would be sought and recruited by multiple Aerospace companies looking to manufacture high-tech theoretical designs, none of which had been previously produced. Climbing that ladder eventually took him further down the California Coast to Long Beach. It was one of his last assignments that Tom considered his finest professional achievement. As VP of Manufacturing, he directed and oversaw Northrop’s successful manufacturing and delivery of the Gyroscopes and Beryllium sphere components integral for the success of The AIRS guidance system for the MX Missile. AIRS is still considered the most accurate inertial navigation (INS) system ever built largely based on these incredibly precise, painstakingly manufactured “space-age” components. President Ronald Reagan was to rebrand this missile as “The Peace-Keeper” and due to the extreme accuracy of AIRS, this missile program became a key bargaining chip for the U.S. in the SALT II treaty negotiations with the former USSR. Post 9/11, Tom, never one to rest on his laurels, decided he would join the recently formed U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He worked out of their office in Irvine for 15 years as an adjudicator until he finally, and officially, retired from work at the age of 80 (2017). In 2018 he relocated to Visalia to live with his daughter, Mary Ann Laufer. A year later he took up residency at the nearby Evergreen Residence Assisted Living facility. During his three years there, he thrived within his private “Tom Cave” with his big bed, big screen TV, and family remembrances visible in every nook and cranny. This was his room in the specialized memory care unit where Tom received outstanding care from the devoted staff. Tom engaged his problem-solving skills and positive mental attitude to fight the good fight against the dementia that was claiming his active mind. Mary Ann and Colleen made sure he had a bottomless supply of his favorite items, includ-

ing Baskin-Robins ice cream and Pepsi Free. He was visited often by family and friends, and true to form, he earned the title “King of the Memory Care Unit” for looking out for his fellow residents while impressing upon the staff his “professional” suggestions for the facility’s overall improvement. Though the last gyroscope had long since been delivered, Tom was still on a mission to provide guidance. In the end, the recounting of a man’s life amounts to the many vibrant stories of him, passed on by his family and close friends, as well as their lingering loving thoughts of their life along-side him, long after he is gone. He is known today simply and lovingly as “Papa Tom” to his 10 grandchildren: Lindsey, Kevin, Jenny, Amanda, Hailley, Samantha, Callahan, Lauren, Caleb and Liam; as well as his seven great-grandchildren: Kolbe, Fern, Rosalie, Graham, Archer, Ezra, and Ethan. Papa Tom was a constant and prolific storyteller of tall tales to every wave of these offspring that came down from his line. Thomas E. Ciriacks loved The Green Bay Packers and the great outdoors. He was an accomplished photographer, an avid golfer, a devout fine small arms collector, a habitual technology geek and one who doted on all manner of dogs and devoured any and all types of very hot sauces. Tom’s pride and joy, however, was always his family, his team, his collection of people to provide for and hold close. This intention started with his marriage to Colleen, who relocated to Visalia (post-divorce) to assist their daughter, Mary Ann, with the coordination of his ongoing care to the very end. In order of birth, Tom is survived by his children, Patrick (Kelly), Julie (Wade) Brylow, Mary Ann, Thomas M. (Jeannine) and Paul (Milka). He was preceded in death by his son James (Valerie). Tom will be missed by all who knew him. Services have been entrusted to Salser & Dillard Funeral Chapel. Memorial Tributes and condolences may be offered by visiting salseranddillard.com.

Notice is hereby given that the Carpinteria Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) will be conducting a series of six community meetings beginning on October 19th to discuss the Carpinteria Groundwater Basin - Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP).

Tears pooled in my eyes when I realized that the times I’m most frustrated with my boys aren’t about them; it’s about me. They’re doing what they should be doing as kids- running, playing and finding their voice. I discovered I’m the one setting unrealistic expectations. Children should not be expected to sit still for long periods, so of course, they will get fidgety at dinner or on car rides to Nana’s house three hours away. My job is to love them and keep them safe – their job is to play. I recently attended a conference for early childhood education directors. Full disclosure, my background is not in ECE, so I learned a lot! Everything that was covered I can apply to the work we do with children here at the Carpinteria Children’s Project, but also to how I interact with my kids at home. What most resonated with me was that learning happens through play. Often, as parents, we focus on academics. We want children to read and know their letters and numbers, and colors, but we forget that there’s a foundation they need to build first, a foundation that is created through play. Reflect on how much fun you had at the beach, playing catch in the street

Meeting No. 1 will cover an introduction to the Carpinteria Groundwater Basin. We will talk about a model of the basin, known as the Hydrogeologic Conceptual Model, and we will also talk about historic & current groundwater conditions.

The GSP Community Meeting No 1 will be on: October 19, 2022, at 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Carpinteria Lions Club 6197 Casitas Pass Rd, Carpinteria, CA 93013 The meeting will be recorded and posted on the GSA website for viewing at your convenience. If you would like to know more about this process, please contact the Executive Director Robert McDonald at SGMA@cvwd.net or visit the GSA website, https://carpgsa.org/.

with friends or playing with Barbies at sleepovers. Children learn cognitive and physical skills, new vocabulary, and social and literacy skills when playing. Playing also helps children grow strong and healthy and helps them release the energy they often keep inside while in the classroom. Play is so important, especially now when mental health is such a concern for children and adults alike. Being outside, bare feet on the sand or dirt, is grounding and reduces stress. At the Carpinteria Children’s Project, we’ve made a conscious effort to be outside more with the children. We are also looking at ways to improve our yards to lend themselves to further learning and bringing more nature into the classrooms. This year we also partnered with Wilderness Youth Project, whose staff comes and takes our preschoolers out on an adventure every Monday for three hours. The pictures the teachers share make my heart happy. Often, they are of kids climbing trees, dipping their toes in the ocean, and finding pinecones on their path. So today, when your child asks you to play, think of it as an opportunity to learn together, connect and immerse yourself in the joy a child brings. For more information on the importance and value of play, consider reading David Elkind’s The Power of Play. Teresa Alvarez is the Executive Director of the Carpinteria Children’s Project. She has over a decade of experience in the nonprofit field and a passion for helping children and families. Teresa was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and moved to the U.S. with her parents at age two. Growing up as an undocumented student, she learned the importance of having mentors, a strong work ethic, and the value of education.

Valley Crest cannabis project carbon scrubbers requirement lifted, board of supervisors rule Supervisors partially reverse previous Planning Commission vote

BY ATMIKA IYER Valley Crest successfully appealed the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission’s internal greenhouse carbon scrubbers requirement for the 5980 Casitas Pass Road cannabis project, during last week’s County Board of Supervisors meeting. Although the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission denied the Cate School’s appeal of the project this past July, the commission asked Valley Crest to implement internal greenhouse carbon scrubbers, one of the school’s requests. When the applicants disagreed with the commissioners’ request, county staff then told the applicants that they could appeal the condition with the Board of Supervisors. Prior to county planner Ben Singer’s presentation to the board during the meeting, the directors accepted two letters from odor-control group Concerned Carpinterians member Anna Carrillo and Holland and Knight attorneys Nicholas Targ and Jessica Laughlin, on behalf of the appellants. Singer’s presentation to the supervisors raised Valley Crest’s one issue in its appeal: The Planning Commission’s condition exceeds the requirements of odor abatement as outlined in Article II, and Valley Crest’s previous odor abatement plan sufficiently meets all county requirements without the use of carbon scrubbers. Singer said the project meets all applicable policies and standards. “How would we make the determination that the proposed odor plan isn’t working, that they need to go to carbon scrubbers? Who makes that decision and how?” asked Fifth-District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino. Staff responded that new projects in Carpinteria Valley require quarterly monitoring for the first year. During these monitoring periods, staff will assess if the odor can be detected in residential zones, which would trigger an advancement in the existing tiered odor abatement response. There are four tiers to the odor abatement plan. Level one includes a visual inspection equipment and implementing any corrective measures; level two includes weather analysis, a diagnostic assessment of the system, staff interviews and corrective action; level three includes odor control system testing, addition of carbon scrubbers, and a thorough analysis and report to planning and development and level four includes a Best Available Control Technology analysis and report. Supervisor Bob Nelson confirmed with staff that carbon scrubbers are included in the existing tiered response system if the odor is not sufficiently abated through the lower tiers. The current system is a Benzaco scientific odor armor 420 vapor phase system, a Fogco dispersal/nozzle system, 12 carbon filters, smart technology and weather station monitoring, according to Valley Crest representative and Flowers & Associates Attorney Galore Macon and Headwaters Director of Compliance Eric Edwards. “The project before you today is a model project. It’s one of the two farms in Carpinteria Valley using the Benzaco/ Fogco odor control system as its primary means of odor control,” Edwards said. “The additional condition imposed by the Planning Commission and the subject of this appeal supplants this requirement and the recommendations of experts. It was not modeled on nor created for this specific project,” Edwards said. “It’s sim-

ply unwarranted and unneeded.” Edwards argued the given one-year period to implement carbon scrubbers is too small a window and too onerous a task. “Please do not change the goal posts on us in the eleventh hour. Our project not only complies with the county’s ordinance requirements, it greatly exceeds them,” Edwards said. In response to supervisor questions, Edwards said the project is not a “significant contributor to the odor that is being experienced,” but that it isn’t realistic “to expect that there will never be odor, especially on the roadways in front of these facilities.” He confirmed there had been 26 complaints against the project. Carrillo, a longtime fighter against cannabis odors, requested supervisors deny the appeal, arguing the project should have carbon scrubbers. Assistant Head of School Charlotte Brownlee further said the tiered system does not work on behalf of complaints, and that Cate School repeatedly experiences cannabis odors. But supervisors were less amenable to the carbon scrubbers requirement. “The Planning Commission, I appreciate their intent, but they didn’t even know if [the condition] is implementable,” Williams said. “I believe we are on very shaky grounds if the county were to de facto create a requirement that we did not legislate, that we just ad-hoc-ed into

The 5980 Casitas Pass Road project contains a greenhouse and a processing building. an appeals process of this magnitude.” He suggested that the county pursue the mandatory implementation of carbon scrubber legislatively, rather than impose it upon an individual project. Nelson also took issue with the Fogco system, which some public commenters said produced respiratory issues. Lavagnino agreed Williams, stating that while he understands the complaints lodged against the Benzaco/ Fogco system, the project’s odor plan was ultimately compliant with all existing requirements. “The applicant submitted an odor abatement plan. Staff determined it’s consistent with the requirements of our ordinance. A certified industrial hygienist has certified that the methods and equipment are consistent with accepted industry best practice,” Lavagnino said. Supervisor Hartmann asked staff why the county didn’t already have higher odor abatement standards; staff con-

firmed the current project is up to par with county requirements. “I’m really struggling to go along with the law, even if the law is unjust,” Hartmann said. The board ultimately approved Valley Crest’s appeal with four supervisors in favor, and Hartmann abstaining from the vote. Atmika Iyer is a freelancer for Coastal View News.

Do your readings on Measure T

Read the Carpinteria City Attorney’s impartial analysis of Measure T. First, I applaud Mike Wondolowski, president of the Carpinteria Valley Association, for his entertaining, educational and timely columns in CVN regarding important subjects that affect our community. I always find food for thought. His latest column, on how facts can be manipulated (CVN Vol. 29, No. 2) led me to look for a clear analysis of one of our current hot topics: Measure T. The Carpinteria City Attorney has provided an impartial Analysis of Measure T. And it became clear to me that we are voting in November for more than “for or against the Surfliner Inn.” Our votes on this Measure will have much broader effects than this one issue. Go to the City website carpinteria. ca.gov. Search Measure T and then scroll down to the blue bar titled ‘Other Election Informational Resources’ and read the top six bullet points: The measure itself, the attorney’s analysis, statements in favor and against, plus the rebuttals to those statements. We have the privilege to vote and the responsibility to individually understand and decide for ourselves what is best for our community.

Nowadays, it is easy to Google those running for office and such searches can tell you a lot. I know that Summerland and Carpinteria residents care about their schools, the children who attend, and the staff that teach there every day.

Don’t be fooled, vote Yes on T

A flier from the committee opposing Measure T was in my mailbox. I looked it over and felt confused and upset. I considered making some phone calls to get clarity about the claims that were made on the flier. What is the truth? Then I stepped back from it. I realized that it was a political piece. That it was designed to confuse and upset. That statement may or may not be true. I focused on what was true for me. I simply don’t want a hotel in our beach area. I like our town the way it is now. We have a small-town charm because we are a small town. Not one of us who lives here needs a fancy boutique hotel. The parking lot is open and spacious. I invite you to go stand in it. Look at the view. Look at the sky. Enjoy the spaciousness. Listen to the birds in the eucalyptus trees. Smell the ocean. We need all the space we can get around us. Don’t be tricked by political hit pieces. Join me in voting Yes on Measure T.

There is confusion about what Measure T will and will not do. This is an attempt to clarify some issues. Measure T will allow Carpinterians to decide if commercial development will be permitted on Parking Lot #3. A yes vote on Measure T will reaffirm the zoning on the lot by The Spot. It will change the zoning of the parking lot, preventing commercial development. In other words, the hotel will not be built if the zoning changes. Measure T pertains to these two lots and these two lots only. It will not affect land use anywhere else in Carpinteria. It will not allow high-density residential development on Parking Lot #3. It will not limit the City Council’s authority, other than the zoning of these two parcels. Measure T is an effort to maintain the small-town charm and character of Carpinteria. Measure T is an effort to prevent private development on public land. Measure T will help preserve our

finite water supply. I’d like to add a bit of history related to this issue. Vice Mayor Al Clark was unsuccessful in getting a second to his motion to put this issue to an advisory vote. Measure T gives us an opportunity to make our voices heard.

Re-elect Gregg Carty

I have lived in Carpinteria since 1980 and had the pleasure of serving 28 years on the Carpinteria City Council, including two terms as Mayor. I hate that we now have state mandated district elections, and seeing our community torn apart because two incumbents who have served our city well for 16 years now have to run against each other. However, what I think is far more damaging is when an incumbent candidate criticizes the other four city council members by making comments that are simply not true. You see, the city council works as a team. For an incumbent candidate to claim exclusive credit for any one of the city’s major initiatives such as Measure X, which funded our library and street repairs, or the ordinance banning big box stores, is very misleading. And for this same incumbent candidate, who voted in unison with the other four city council members (including me up until 2018) on almost every decision to use “Get the City Council Back on Track and Save Our City” as his campaign slogan is nonsensical. Carpinteria deserve clean politics. In my opinion Gregg Carty is truly deserving of being re-elected to the Carpinteria City Council.

Seniors support Carty for Council

A vote for Gregg Carty is a vote for a city council member who has demonstrated his strong feelings for all citizens of Carpinteria. From his support for our “new” library and its programs which benefit all Carpinterians, to his support for youth and the skate park, to his commitment and work on the ad hoc Senior Services Committee to get a Senior Center going. In attending city council and all ad hoc committee meetings, I have found Gregg to honestly speak his mind and show his passion for our wonderful city and its citizens.

Yes on T means no hotel

In an ideal world, the Carpinteria City Council would have listened to the overwhelming majority of citizens opposed to the Surfliner Inn Project. They would’ve performed their job and held an advisory vote to allow residents to decide on the development of public land. We citizens wouldn’t have been forced to put in countless hours of volunteer time and effort generating an initiative to have our voices heard. The intent of Measure T would not be distorted by hotel supporters. The leader of the hotel campaign would not have a conflict of interest due to the proposed cafe as part of the hotel project. The city leaders would be honest about downtown parking needs. The state re-

cently passed a law preventing cities from requiring parking for new developments. Parking Lot 3 will be critical to the future parking needs of downtown businesses and beach visitors. The city would not be greedy for new tax revenue. The city is financially solvent due to Measure X sales tax; the 21-22 fiscal year brought in 3.9 million, 70% from tourist money. The projected rental income ($625K) from the hotel is not needed or guaranteed. The city of Carpinteria would not lease public land to a private developer. A new hotel would not be approved on the verge of a stage three drought. Studies show that hotels use several times standard domestic consumption per capita. In an ideal world, decisions wouldn’t always boil down to money, but would be based on important values like preserving the last small beach town in California for residents, not tourists, carpetbaggers and money grabbers.

CVA endorses Solorzano and Clark

“The goal of the community is to preserve the essential character of our small beach town, its family-oriented residential neighborhoods, its unique visual and natural resources and its open, rural surroundings while enhancing recreational, cultural and economic opportunities for our citizens.” Based on this guideline, for the Nov. 8 city council election the Carpinteria Valley Association has endorsed Monica Solorzano (District 1) and Al Clark (District 5). Monica is running unopposed. Her qualifications are exemplary, and we are confident that her decisions on the council will be guided by that statement of the goal of the community. Her impressive educational and professional background is a strong foundation, and her volunteer work as Downtown “T” Advisory Board Member. In District 5, Al Clark’s record as a 16year council member and as a community volunteer for much longer clearly prove his commitment to the goal of the community. He has demonstrated his ability to take principle-based positions and to get things done. For example, rather than abide by “prevailing wisdom” that new development was needed to generate much-needed city revenue, he helped conceive Measure X. We need Al’s vision and creativity on the council.

Active adult/senior program feedback

As an active citizen of Carpinteria I was intrigued to learn that the city was beginning the conversation again about a senior center. After countless efforts by Roz Kohute, the city council directed city staff to form an advisory committee for what the vision of the program should be. I was eager to join this committee and help build a plan to bring community collaboration to a group of people, especially aging adults.

Join the conversation.

CoastalView.com CoastalView.com

Thursday, October 13, 2022  11 The committee has been meeting since May to collect feedback and input on what would best serve Carpinterians. Over 400 surveys have been conducted and we are still welcoming feedback. When the El Carro Park/Girls Inc. property was purchased in the early 1990s, the original plan was to build a community center next to Girls Inc., now a nursery. Similar to the Skate Park this has been a long time coming. We need you, regardless of your age, your input matters. Special thanks to Gregg Carty and Roy Lee for representing the city council and Assistant City Manager Michael Ramirez for opening the conversation. Join us and help launch an active adults program in Carpinteria.

Carpinteria needs a rooftop night spot

surrounding buildings, we became aware that many at the moment do not seem to be occupied: Omwegs/Austins, The Palms, Senor Frogs and some second floors of others. I wondered if any of these could possibly be repurposed as a rooftop night spot with a view of the ocean. It seems there is a great interest in having a place where locals and visitors could go and enjoy the view of the ocean while enjoying a cocktail. To build a hotel to achieve this, seems a bit excessive to me. We have six motels, a state park and many rentals by or on the beach to accommodate our visitors. We live by the train tracks and I can honestly say I would not pay to stay in a motel any closer to the tracks than we

are right now. There is a 5 a.m. freight that does not encourage sleeping. I was inspired to write this by a copy of an 1886 article from our very own Grapevine Newsletter from the Carpinteria Valley Historical Society. It concluded by saying of our valley, “Favored by nature, it has not been spoiled by man.” We are the caretakers of this beautiful valley and city of Carpinteria and as its stewards, we should preserve it for generations to come!

FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK WA D E N O M U R A M AY O R O F C A R P I N T E R I A

Dear Carpinterians, The 36th annual California Avocado Festival was truly one for the record books. Throughout the three days of “peace, love and guacamole,” I was approached by dozens of people who told me how thrilled they were to be back at Avofest and how its absence made them appreciate it even more. My guess is that most of the 64,000 people enjoyed the music, food and activities of the Avocado Festival without thinking about the enormous amount of work that goes into a multi-day, multi-block, multi-stage event. I would like to thank the incredible Avofest board of directors and all the hardworking volunteers who helped to ensure this massive event went off without a hitch. I would also like to thank the Sheriff’s Office and firefighters/ EMTs for working to keep everyone safe during the festival. And lastly, let’s not forget our own Public Works department, which provides critical support before, during and after the festival! If you drive on the west end of town, you’ve probably noticed the construction on Carpinteria Avenue. This is work for the new Santa Claus Lane Bikeway for bicycles and pedestrians to travel between Carpinteria Avenue and Santa Claus Lane. This work will require a five-month closure of the southbound on-ramp at Santa Claus Lane. Thank you for being patient with the construction, and please

“My guess is that most of the 64,000 people enjoyed the music, food and activities of the Avocado Festival without thinking about the enormous amount of work that goes into a multi-day, multi-block, multistage event.” remember to support the businesses in that area that are being impacted by the construction. By next summer, we’ll be pedaling or strolling to Santa Claus Lane for a visit to the beach or the shops! I’ll leave you with a message that I like to repeat periodically in this letter: Please spend your dollars in Carpinteria. We are entering that slow retail period between the summer and the holidays, and our local businesses need your support. Do you have something in your Amazon cart that you could pick up in Carpinteria instead? Have you tried any of our wonderful newer restaurants, cafes or shops? Have you stopped by one of your old favorites to grab a bite or a gift lately? These are the things that keep our local merchant community strong and capable of being donors to our local nonprofits. If you love Carp, shop Carp and invest in our community! Stay well, stay safe and stay cool! Wade Nomura is the mayor of Carpinteria. He can be reached at WadeNomura@carpinteriaca.gov.

Clark is committed to Carpinteria

My vote for City Council’s newly configured 5th district will be for Al Clark. I have watched Al’s commitment to Carpinteria over the years and have noted that he is consistently the one councilmember who asks the hard questions and finds the answers that best suit the residents of our small city. If it’s finding solutions to fund our road maintenance backlog, save our library and fund recreation opportunities, if it’s supporting our local businesses, or finding solutions to our local affordable housing, Al studies every issue, studies them from every perspective and then comes up with solutions that best meet Carpinteria needs. Al has taken a hands-on approach to bettering our community with active participation in such diverse activities as volunteering with Bellas Artes, working to protect the harbor seal habitat and has worked to protect Carpinteria’s creeks and riparian corridors. Al cares for our people, our animals, our environment and our quality of life here in the city that we all call home. Al has had plans that suit our small beach community for the last 20 years. Please join me in voting for Al Clark for 5th District Council Member on (or before) Nov. 8.

No on T and deceptive tactics

Nothing turns off voters more than a barrage of confusing mailers, mottos and ads. My two political pet peeves: Ballot measures that say one thing on their face but would or could do the opposite if passed, and titles and mottos that sound great – ‘til you read the fine print. Turned off by strategies designed to mislead the electorate, many among us “just say no” to deceptive tactics by not voting. This is how cynicism helps erode a democracy. Measure T is a perfect example. Four of out five democratically elected Carpinteria city council members did the courageous and responsible thing. They warned that Measure T is misleading “to the point of doing the opposite of its stated intent” – to quote their public statement. Measure T’s motto, “Save Our Open Space” is one of those annoying catchy phrases meant to paper over reality. Measure T will not preserve or promote recreational or green space. It does the opposite. It classifies city parking lots as “open space” for the purpose of saving one specific parking lot. Measure T not only does not require any city property to be developed as recreational open space, and the measure may conflict with state laws passed to promote and preserve open space. As an attorney and homeowner, I fear this poorly worded ballot measure will invite costly litigation. Don’t be fooled by deliberately ambiguous wording. This isn’t a measure to save anything but a parking lot. In a democracy, decision-making about how best to use public lands for the public benefit of current and future generations belongs not in the hands of a few privileged property owners who get a deceptively worded measure on the ballot, but rather with our democratically elected representatives. Say no to deceptive political tactics. Vote No on Measure T.

Deborah Dentler Carpinteria

I’m not sold on simple

I have been told Measure T is simple; a yes vote will stop the hotel project. If it was that easy, why is there no mention of a hotel in the wording of Measure T? Truth is, it’s complicated. The city attorney’s analysis of Measure T warned the initiative would create problems and could only be undone by another election. Four out of five members of the city council called the wording of Measure T “dishonest and unfair,” and added “The unclear provisions of Measure T would draw expensive litigation.” Proponents of Measure T say we can’t trust our city attorney or the city council, claiming they aren’t listening to the people. When exactly did that happen? For 57 years, Carpinteria’s city council, planning commission and legal staff created the town you see today. The General Plan developed in 2003, updated in 2011 and again in 2018 invited participation from all citizens. Multiple hearings on how we want the city to look have been very public and well publicized. In gathering signatures for Measure T, proponents claimed the effort was to “give people a voice.” No mention of the hotel, just a plea to “save open space” because the government wasn’t listening. Accusing our city leaders of not listening is incorrect and rude. Our city council has studied city needs based on years of public input. If Measure T is about saving a parking lot, we have better things to do. If Measure T is about stopping a hotel, the initiative should say that rather than hiding behind the myth of saving open space. I stand with the city attorney and four out of five elected city leaders, Wade Nomura, Roy Lee, Gregg Carty and Natalia Alarcon. Vote no on Measure T.

Gregg Carty for Carpinteria Council

Through threat of litigation, the city of Carpinteria was forced to transition away from at-large elections to district-based elections, which means that each resident can only vote for the candidate in their district. I have immense respect for those who offer up their time and talents for public office and thank them all for their dedication, however, as a 40-year resident and one who has worked side-by- side with Gregg Carty on numerous community projects, my vote goes to Gregg Carty for District 5. His deep, generational roots in Carpinteria, unwavering commitment to our town’s vitality, and balanced view of what’s best for the future, seats him above and beyond the two other candidates. Gregg has always had the ability to learn from the past, while making smart decisions that yield best results for our community’s future. Of the three candidates running for District 5, Gregg Carty is the most invested in ensuring the preservation of our neighborhood and community. Again, thanks to all who step up to lead and let’s remember that no matter what, the sun will come up tomorrow, the sky won’t fall, and in the end, we’re all Carpinterians sharing the same love of community.

(A shout out to all dogs, everywhere, and to all their caring owners.) I don’t recall all her fine stories but a history in Santa Maria, then Chino and now here. A beauty and a dancer. A full family life. I’m sure there are many other places and adventures in between. Nowadays I often see her on regular morning walks about 11 a.m. along Palm, leading her son-in-law, who, partially blind, follows, tapping a white cane. He affectionately calls her his “seeing eye granny.” Got to love that. Vera is still keenly alert. When she sees me on my bike, she stops and waves, then we converse a while. She always inspires with encouraging words: “We have to keep moving, you look younger than before, I’m still sweet sixteen,” and more to that effect. I would have sent her a birthday card, but I have lost her address. So, if the editor chooses to publish this, perhaps she’ll read “My sincerest, most admiring, birthday wishes to Vera,” this Friday, Oct. 14, 2022!

The elephant in the room

You’ve heard about the polka dotted purple elephant in the middle of the room that no one quite knows how to look at or talk to or bring up, right? Measure T is just that, and Carpinterians aren’t quite sure how to look at it, talk about it and or bring it up. Let’s put that elephant right in the middle of parking lot No. 3 and talk about it. The language of measure T is backdooring “preservation” of “open space.” As a “transplant,” despite living here for 30 years, the term “open space” does not sit lightly for me. I was an avid supporter of Carpinteria Bluffs one and two, and rejuvenation of Franklin Trail, fundraising and fighting for “protection and preservation of open space.” The last big bad wolf that tried backdoor verbiage, opposite to “What they really, really wanted” in the words of The Spice Girls, was Venoco, who created Measure J. Carpinteria worked adamantly together like the three little pigs and blew that bad boy down. Measure T does not constitute “Open Space” such that the Carpinteria community takes heart and fights too. The true underlying verbiage does damage, most especially in Section 6. Implementation of the Measure, to our city for future determination of zones that are not necessarily “threatened of non preservation or protection but are in need of rejuvenation, maintenance and clearing.” If you don’t want the hotel, just say that – don’t present a polka dotted pink purple elephant to our community call-

No on T, yes on sustainable planning

It’s that time of year where yard signs, ads and political jargon are everywhere you look. One such measure that’s being proposed on the ballot is Measure T, a deceptive and convoluted measure which has the ability to change the general plan and the definition of real open space to include existing parking lots while also allowing residential development. I urge Carpinterians to do their research, due diligence and read all of the small print. Never has land use been voted on in an election and a city’s general plan changed in this way. This measure also has the ability to affect 14 OSR zoned properties (approximately 115 acres) all within the city of Carpinteria. Why all the change, when change is what is feared the most? Let’s embrace the way things have always been done, with smart and sustainable planning for the future of our city for generations to come.

Leigh-Anne Anderson Carpinteria

Support downtown businesses, No on T

In Carpinteria, we love our locally owned shops and restaurants along Linden Avenue. Too many are struggling. Before you vote on Measure T, it may be a good idea to ask the Linden Avenue business owners what they prefer in the middle of downtown. A parking lot and fenced-off vacant lot (which is what we’ll have for years if Measure T passes) or a small hotel that will bring visitors by train to patronize our shops and restaurants – and additional parking (which is what we can have if Measure T is defeated). I, for one, prefer the latter option.

Animal Shelter temporarily waives adoption, reclamation fees

The Santa Barbara County Animal Services shelters in Santa Barbara and Santa Maria are waiving adoption and reclamation fees through the end of October 2022, to adjust for “highly needed repairs” at the Santa Maria Shelter. The Santa Maria Shelter needs to cut the number of pets in its care by half to adjust for construction, the shelter said in a release. The shelter system is also asking locals to foster animals during the construction period. Food and supplies are provided to all foster families. There are no fees for fostering. “Pet safety and wellbeing are the top priorities of SBCAS. These improvements will be beneficial for pets in the long run, but there will be an increase in sounds and activity that will add to the stress of animals that have no other place to go. Additionally, foster homes provide a respite from shelter life, similar to what a vacation does for us,” Animal Services Director Sarah Aguilar said. Learn more about available pets to foster or adopt at countyofsb.org/415/ Animal-Services.

Covid-19 numbers in Santa Barbara County as of Oct. 6.

Omicron booster approved for 5+

Children ages 5-11 can now receive Omicron Covid-19 booster shots, with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization released Wednesday. Pfizer’s Omicron booster shot is available for children five and up, and Moderna’s for ages six and up. Prior to Wednesday, the Omicron booster shots had only been cleared for ages 12 and up for Pfizer vaccines, and ages 18 and up for Moderna vaccines. The FDA encouraged community members to get Omicron – bivalent – Covid-19 boosters. “The virus that causes Covid-19 changes over time. Keep your protection against Covid-19 up to date by getting a bivalent Covid-19 vaccine booster dose,” the organization said in a news release. “The bivalent Covid-19 vaccines include a component of the original virus strain to provide broad protection against Covid-19 and a component of the Omicron variant to provide better protection against Covid-19 caused by the Omicron variant. These are called bivalent Covid-19 vaccines because they contain these two components. A bivalent Covid-19 vaccine may also be referred to as ‘updated’ Covid-19 vaccine booster dose.” Covid-19 community transmission levels in Santa Barbara remain “low,” as classified by the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department. To learn where to get vaccinated for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/vaccine. To get tested for Covid-19, visit publichealthsbc.org/testing. For more information from the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, call 211 and press #4 or email the county at PHDDOC.PIOCommunitySupport@sbcphd.org.

More than 240 gather at Rincon for adaptive surfing day PHOTOS BY DUBOCK.COM

Life Rolls On – an adaptive surfing and skating organization for people with disabilities – held its first “They Will Surf Again” event last week at Rincon, where, assisted by over 200 volunteers, more than 40 individuals with disabilities enjoyed a surfing and beach day at Rincon. The sport of adaptive surfing was created by California surfer Jesse Billauer, who became a quadriplegic after a surfing accident in Malibu, according to according to Tricia Nordby, Life Rolls On representative. “Determined to return to the ocean he loved, he worked with surfboard manufacturers and his ‘brothers’ in the pro surfing world – Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Shane Dorian and more – to venture into the waves. The moment he felt the freedom of the water, leaving his wheelchair behind on the shore, he knew he had to make surfing accessible for others. And so, he did,” Nordby told CVN. Life Rolls On has held 11 adaptive surfing events so far and three adaptive skating events across the county, including in New York, NY, La Jolla, CA and Carolina Beach, NC. The events are free for people with disabilities. “People living with disabilities are faced with expenses most of us cannot begin to comprehend, so keeping the experience free is essential to the mission. Generous sponsors and grassroots donations make this possible,” Nordby said. Learn more about Life Rolls On at liferollson.org.

SCHOOL NOTES

Workability takes trip to CSD School of Performing Arts

Nikki Powell, owner and director of the CSD School of Performing Arts, welcomed students from the Carpinteria Unified School District as part of the district’s workability program. The Workability program takes students to local businesses to give them some work life experience and introduce them to future career choices. Powell gave students a tour of the CSD studio and a free mini dance session, according to Carpinteria Middle School Special Education specialist and head of the Workability program Kelli Flores. “The kids absolutely loved every minute of it,” Flores said. Flores said Powell offered to collaborate with the Workability program and CUSD to get a weekly adaptive dance class started at the middle school. “We are hopeful that this will get approved as the students really enjoyed learning dance moves from Powell,” Flores said. “She has really taken the studio to the next level and has done a wonderful job with the takeover.”

LET’S TALK TEK M I C H A E L AV E R Y In Part 1 last week, I presented the Samsung Smart School program and discussed the impact of Tek on the learning environment. The learning environment is more dynamic than ever before, and as a result, today’s learners are learning in a way that’s very different from how our educational system was originally designed. With the advancement in technology and the rise of remote learning, classrooms are being remodeled and redefined in several ways to fit the evolving needs of modern digital learners. In Part 2 I want to present points to consider for including technology in a learning environment: Helps connect students to the real world: A geology professor takes her students on a virtual tour of Grand Canyon National Park. A history teacher walks his students through the corridors and history of the White House. Technology allows educators to remove the physical barriers of the classroom, offering students a way to connect the curriculum with the real world and those areas of academic focus at can truly enrich the student experience. Prepares students for the workforce: To thrive in the 21st-century workplace, stu-

Santa Barbara City College instructor Nadia Lyhitchenko took her English as a second language students on a trip to the Carpinteria Library on Thursday, Sept. 29 to show students resources available to them. The class ventured from their classroom located at the Carpinteria Children’s project. “This was the first time all the students had visited their local library,” said Lyhitchenko. She said she took her students to the library “with the purpose of introducing them to all the resources available for themselves and their family.”

dents need to have more than a working knowledge of certain technological tools, such as electronic calendars, interacting with web pages, teleconferencing, electronic whiteboards, etc. By integrating these technologies into the regular curriculum and on-going activities, institutions are ensuring that their students are better prepared for the modern office. Encourages collaboration: Many educational tools offer a variety of functionalities that promote collaboration. For example, video conferencing tools such as Zoom, and Skype provide an easy way for students to hold virtual meetings with classmates from anywhere in the world. With free online storage solutions like Google Drive, students can easily share and edit projects with each other, helping to foster better overall collaboration in both the academic sphere and the world of work. Supports different types of learners: No two students learn the same way, but with the right insight tools, educators can address diversity in learning styles and experiences. A Student Insight Solution platform can provide a detailed overview that is essential in identifying student needs based on real-time feedback. The program provides the centralized insight and increase in student engagement by allowing instructors to connect and engage with every single student, no matter where they are or what their challenges are. Access information more easily: Technology makes it easier for students to find information quickly and accurately. Search engines and e-books are partially

With the advancement in technology and the rise of remote learning, classrooms are being remodeled and redefined in several ways to fit the evolving needs of modern digital learners. replacing traditional textbooks. Instead of personal tutors, students can get oneon-one help through educational videos – anytime and anywhere – and massive open online courses (MOOCs). Giving students a grounding in using these continuous learning tools enriches their future learning potential. Teaches students how to be responsible online: With social media sites galore, most students are already digital citizens. However, by incorporating technology into the classroom, students can begin to learn how to be responsible in the digital world and with their digital actions. The class becomes a microcosm of the broader digital landscape where students can practice how to communicate, search, and engage with other digital citizens. Adds a fun-factor to learning: Outside the classroom, students use technology in all aspects of their lives. Within the classroom, technology can make learning more fun and exciting. Teaching methods such as game-based learning (GBL) allows instructors to deliver lesson via

interactive games and leaderboards. Who doesn’t enjoy playing games? An insight tool can be used to gather feedback and critically assess the impact of these gamification efforts, ensuring that you can move beyond the anecdotal and really assess how effective these new tools are. Keeping tabs on these efforts is a great example of organizational agility in action.

Grafs win Carpinteria Beautiful’s October “Looking Good” award

PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

Karen and Lin Graf are the winners of Carpinteria Beautiful’s October “Looking Good” award, for their drought-tolerant front yard on Camellia Circle. Lin told CVN that he and his friend Mark Rauch took on the project of landscaping their front lawn with drought tolerant plants. “Mark had recently retired after years with Santa Barbara Parks and Rec and lent his expertise to the task. We were a bit limited on the creative side and knew we needed help. While visiting a friend’s house, we admired their landscaping and the plants they had in their yard. We asked who did their work, and I was given James Freeman’s name (from) Classic Landscaping,” Lin explained. “I called James, and he came over to help enhance what Mark and I had started. James added his creative touch and with help of his crew, made it look like it does today. “There have been enhancements and changes of plants as we have gone along, but we are pleased with the results and our water usage has gone down significantly.”

Real Estate Update: October 2022

THE QUARTERLY REPORT J O N - R YA N S C H L O B O H M Happy fall! We are excited for this coming season and all that is ahead. To be frank, it is sure easier to write updates when the market is going up, but our goal is to provide an accurate picture of the market. To be frank, it is sure easier to write updates when the market is going up, but our goal is to provide an accurate picture of the market. So how’s the real estate market? Well, as you can see from the statistics below, our market has cooled like the economy in general. Beginning in April of 2022, the total number of sales started to decrease. It sure seemed more dramatic because our market was moving at such a fever pitch in 2021, with some incredibly high sales and overall exuberance, so the cooling seems more extreme than it is. The Data: To provide some perspective, I think it is helpful to compare today›s market to our more typical years of 20152019. Our sales volume of 2,216 sales in 2021 was up 21% from our 5-year average of 1,827 between 2015-2019. This year, our sales volume has dropped. Over the last four months (MayAug) sales volume has decreased by 37% compared to the same four months of 2021. Comparing our last four months of declining sales to our averages for the same months in 2015-2019, sales are down 28%, still a notable amount. Values: What has not decreased is our median price, this reflects which way prices are going. Our median prices are a culmination of eight-month of sales. We saw a rather notable increase in prices in 2021 through the year. Secondly, this

“In Carpinteria we have many condos and high-end condo options, but what is missing from our current active listing is our neighborhood homes. Currently, we only have one singlefamily home for sale under $1.5 million, and that listing is at $1,499,000.” trend continued in 2022 with notable increases in January through April. Due to this, if prices are headed in a different direction, it will take some time for the median to catch up. What we can speak to in regard to values and pressure on pricing is that: More list prices are being reduced, the length of time it takes for a property to go under contract is longer, and many properties are selling under the list price – a phenomenon that was unheard of just six months ago. But one thing should be noted, our inventory of available homes and condos is decreasing again, we have very few homes for sale. On Sept. 27, we only had 189 homes or condos for sale between

Carpinteria to Goleta. Looking at Carpinteria specifically, our sales volume is down by about 33% compared to 2021. Year to date through September 2022, we have only sold 90 homes and condos. Overall, Carpinteria has a little more inventory compared to our greater market. As of Oct. 10, 29 properties are listed for sale and currently represent 3 months of inventory. We have many condos and high-end condo options, but what is missing from our current active listing is our neighborhood homes. Currently, we only have one single-family home for sale under $1.5 million, and that listing is at $1,499,000. Overall, with interest rates rising and fewer buyers in the market, there is no longer pressure pushing prices up; in fact, the opposite seems to be occurring. And for most sellers with a loan, it is not very appealing to sell now and purchase another property at an interest rate double what they currently have. As always, we are always here to be of assistance, feel free to reach out if you need anything.

CVN

CHEF RANDY RANDY GRAHAM This recipe makes one sandwich but if you need more, double the recipe for two, triple it for three, etc. Make the pickled red onions the day before. Any leftover onions will keep in the refrigerator for at least a week. They are an awesome topping for your favorite burger.

Sandwich ingredients:

2 slices of fresh multigrain bread (such as Dave’s Killer Bread) 2 tablespoons Vegenaise 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish ½ ripe avocado (sliced) 2 slices fresh mozzarella (¼-inch slices) 2 slices green heirloom tomato (¼-inch slices) 4 slices cucumber (1/8-inch slices) ¼ cup pickled red onions (see recipe below) 2 leaves butter lettuce (rinsed and dried) Pickled cucumbers (to serve on the side)

Pickled Red Onion Ingredients:

1½ cups boiling hot water 1 cup distilled white vinegar 3 tablespoons sugar ½ teaspoon Mexican oregano 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 medium red onion (cut in half and sliced thin) 1 serrano chili (halved lengthwise) 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Pickled Red Onion Directions:

In a glass mixing bowl, combine hot water, vinegar, sugar, oregano and salt. Stir until sugar and salt are totally dissolved. Add onions, chili and pepper flakes. Stir to blend. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Sandwich Assembly:

Toast the bread and spread both slices with one tablespoon Vegenaise and ½ teaspoon horseradish. Top the bottom slice with the avocado, mozzarella, tomato, cucumber, pickled onions and lettuce. Lay the other slice of toasted bread on top, Vegenaise side down and press gently. Slice in half. I like to serve these with pickled baby cucumbers. Note: Wrapping the sandwiches in parchment paper prior to cutting helps to hold them together.

Open call for Latinx Mural designs

The “Latinx Arts Project/Artes de Proyecto Latinx” has made a call for regional artists to submit designs for a mural, incorporating the theme of the “Past, Present, Future of the Latinx community in Carpinteria.” The design can incorporate one, two or all three aspects of this theme – up to the artist’s interpretation. This call is open to artists from Carpinteria, and the Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. A $2,500 cash honorarium will be awarded to the artist whose design is chosen, and the final design will be depicted on a public wall in Carpinteria with further funds provided to create and install the design. A location has not yet been chosen. The call for mural designs will remain open until Dec. 31, 2022. Artists can find more information on the latinxartsproject.org website.

“Dude, You’re Making a Scene” comes to Alcazar on Oct. 22

The Alcazar Theatre will host a game show titled “Dude You’re Making a Scene” emceed by Ben Ferguson on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 3 p.m., and will include writing, performing and cash and prize giveaways. The show will also be broadcast live on YouTube and TVSB. Ferguson is the creator of the game show, and he told CVN he wants it to be “pure fun.” The game show centers around two members of the audience writing and directing an improv script, and is separated into three parts. First, two members of the audience are invited on stage, and given a place and an object. They then are each given twenty minutes to write and rehearse their own script with a group of improv actors. Audience members who would be willing to participate will sign a waiver when they enter the theater. While the writers and actors are creating the script, Ferguson will invite audience members to participate in games which he described as “a mix of Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal.” During this time, Ferguson said there would be lots of cash and prize giveaways. Once the writers and actors are done rehearsing, there will be a table read of the script and a performance. The audience will pick which of the two scripts they liked best, and the winner will receive a cash prize. Ferguson said the show will be about 90 minutes, with two rounds of the three act show. He said he expects to get a few episodes out of the show, which would be aired later. The Alcazar Theatre is located at 4916 Carpinteria Ave. Learn more at thealcazar.org.

THROWBACK

Growing up Gaynor

Coastal View News • Carpinteria, California

THURSDAY

BY STEPHEN BATES

This month marks the 140th anniversary of the creation of a ranch near La Conchita. The Gaynor Ranch has remained in the same family since 1882, though there were a couple of deaths and remarriages in the early years. Edward Thomas Mullin, who was born in Prince Edward Island in Canada, came to Carpinteria sometime before 1880, became a naturalized citizen, and petitioned for a free ranch under the Homestead Act. A would-be settler could claim 160 acres of public land, live there for five years, and receive the title. In October 1882, Mullin asked for a hilly 160-acre parcel in Ventura County, between Rincon Point and Punta Gorda, as La Conchita was known then. When the government granted his application, he built a small ranch house (22 feet by 22 feet) from pine and redwood and moved into it with his wife, Catherine, who was also from Prince Edward Island. The ranch takes its name from Thomas Gaynor, who was Edward Mullin’s second wife’s second husband. Here’s how that came about: Catherine died in childbirth on New Year’s Eve 1885. In 1889, Edward married an Illinois native named Nettie Julia Rice. Then in late 1894 or early 1895, Edward died, age 41, at a camp; details are unknown. In 1897, his widow, Nettie, married Thomas Gaynor, an immigrant from Ireland, and transferred the ranch to him. Nettie’s daughter Pauline Gaynor, born in 1891, produced a lively, loving account of childhood on the ranch. (Her father was Edward Mullin. When her mother remarried, she took her stepfather’s surname.) She wrote the memoir for an undergraduate class at UC Los Angeles in 1926 and the “Ventura County Historical Society Quarterly” published it in 2004. Growing up on the ranch, according to Pauline, was hardscrabble but idyllic. As a young girl, she milked cows (and got kicked by them), slopped and slaughtered pigs, herded cattle, and plowed lima beans. For fun, she trained a mare to throw her whenever they reached a certain spot on the ranch, but before long “this was not enough for her, and she began kicking me off at any spot she wished.” Her mother arranged for a sedate replacement. Pauline also helped at the Punta Gorda Post Office after her mother became postmistress in about 1909. The post office occupied a ramshackle addition to their ranch house. Southern Pacific trains

GAYNOR FAMILY

In 1882, Edward Thomas Mullin claimed a 160-acre ranch near present-day La Conchita under the Homestead Act.

From horseback, Pauline Gaynor took this photo looking down on the Gaynor Ranch, likely not long after 1900. Rincon Point is in the distance. brought the mail. The Southern Pacific took Pauline to and from school in Ventura, too. In the 1911 Ventura High School yearbook, this poem accompanied her photo: “Picture to yourself, a maid / Always smiling, not dismayed; / Gracious, though the train’s delayed.” As automobiles became more common, roadbuilders erected three causeways near the foot of the Gaynor Ranch

to carry coastal traffic safely above the beach. The causeways opened in 1912. In 1915, the ranch briefly became a tourist attraction. According to the “Lompoc Record,” one of the Gaynors’ hens adopted a litter of kittens, over the objections of the mother cat. “The freak has attracted considerable attention,” the paper reported, “And autoists have stopped to see the strange family.” Now it would be a TikTok sensation. Pauline’s half-sister, Margaret, the daughter of Thomas and Nettie Gaynor,

was born in 1901. (Her birth certificate lists her birthplace as the Punta Gorda Southern Pacific Railroad Station.) Margaret envied Pauline’s frontier childhood. As a little girl born at the end of the 19th century, Pauline got to drive a horsedrawn wagon. As a little girl born at the beginning of the 20th century, Margaret merely drove a truck, which hardly compared. “Ten years makes a new world,” wrote Pauline, “in the rapidly moving age of ours.” Pauline considered herself fortunate to have grown up on the Gaynor Ranch. Rustic living, she thought, made some people more civilized than so-called civilization. “While I heard all around me rough language and saw violent actions, I never heard petty quarreling or gossip,” she wrote in her 1926 essay. “We lived too near to nature and life was too big a thing for bickering.” If every child could experience her upbringing, she added, “it might solve some of our present-day problems.” Stephen Bates is coauthor (with Vince Burns) of a forthcoming pictorial history of Rincon Point, available for preorder from Amazon, amzn.to/3RtorUO. He lives in Henderson, Nevada, and Carpinteria.

The Mullins and then the Gaynors initially lived in a ranch house that was 22 feet by 22 feet. In about 1909, Nettie Gaynor became postmistress of Punta Gorda, as La Conchita was known. The addition to the right of the house was the post office.

Warriors roll through two Citrus Coast League foes BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

Carpinteria’s girls tennis program has caught fire in the second half of the season, rolling through two Citrus Coast League opponents last week with strong all-around play, dominating in both singles and doubles matchups on both days. After dropping a match last week to league leader Malibu – the only team in the Citrus Coast League to beat Carpinteria this season – the Warriors got back into winning form against the visiting Channel Islands Raiders. Carpinteria found a way to win all but one set on the day, claiming an overall 17-1 win. The dominating victory started with doubles partners Stephanie Ramirez and Sasha Porinsh sweeping their sets, followed by the duo of Ashley Gonzalez and Natalie Martinez, who swept their three sets and only lost one game. “When they get rolling, they are really a strong duo,” said Carpinteria head coach Charles Bryant. “Both are learning when to ramp up the pace and when to use a little more touch on their shots.” Then, the undefeated duo of Ariana Lounsbury and Charlotte Cooney continued what has been a magical season together on the court with yet another perfect 2-0 day. So far, the pair has yet to lose a set playing together in the 2022 campaign. “It is rare that they have a bad day or even a mildly bad day,” Bryant said. “Today was no exception. They just take care of business on the courts.” In singles play, Zahra Porinsh navigated a competitive back-and-forth matchup but came away unscathed at 3-0. “The sets were much closer than the score which makes Zahra’s wins a big

improvement as she was able to win the big points and games,” Bryant said. “Just the recognition of how to handle those types of points and games is so important and Zahra played them perfectly.” Not to be outdone, Silke Leonard (20) and Olivia Broughton (1-0) finished singles play perfect, and Maria Sanchez won two out of three sets to seal the team victory. Two days later, the Warriors hosted the Hueneme Vikings for another Citrus Coast League Matchup. Coach Bryant used the matchup as an opportunity to juggle the lineup, switching up one of the doubles teams and giving a few of the players some extra time in singles play. Gonzales and Martinez continued their success from two days earlier with another 3-0 doubles sweep against the Vikings, as did the duo of Ramirez and Sasha Porinsh. Zahra Porinsh then teamed up with Clover Martinez to win the first doubles set and switched up to play with Leonard to win the second. Leonard then teamed up with Cooney to win the third and final set. “It is not easy switching partners, and it is really not easy doing it on the same day,” Bryant said, “But all those pairings played looked quite strong together.” In singles, Lounsbury finished 3-0, Sanchez went 2-1, and Broughton brought the win home with a final point to give the Warriors the team win, 15-3. Carpinteria now moves to 10-5 overall and is in second place in the Citrus Coast League with a 7-2 record.

ABOVE, Zahra Porinsh has been a force on the court in singles play this year. BELOW, Ariana Lounsbury continues a dominant season with another undefeated performance.

Warriors win again in one-point thriller

Carpinteria took to the road to face the Hoover (Glendale) Tornados last Friday, and Warriors Football notched its second win of the year in a 14-13 thriller. Carpinteria’s strong rushing attack helped the team overpower Hoover, and a career performance by defensive standout Israel Samaguey – who finished with five tackles for loss, four sacks and blocked extra point – led the way for the Warrior’s victory. On offense, quarterback Talon Trumble led the team with 186 rushing yards on 24 carries, while the team combined for a total of 340 yards on the ground. Special teams proved to be the difference in the game, with kicker David Alvarez nailing both extra points for the Warriors and Samaguey sealing the game with a clutch field goal block. “We need to continue this momentum as we get back into league play,” said Carpinteria head coach Mario Robinson.

Carpinteria water polo in winning form

Carpinteria boys water polo won three straight regular season matches and had a strong showing in tournament play against Division 2 talent, finishing with two victories in four games over the weekend. The win streak began with a last second comeback against Ventura, in a close match that saw Ventura jump out to a quick 2-0 lead before the Warriors fought back and took the lead back. The teams traded goals, with Carpinteria taking a one-goal lead into the final period. The Warriors fell behind by two goals with just four minutes left, but the team roared back, and Justin Main tied the game with 54 seconds left on the clock. Goalie Jacob Taff then added to his 14 saves with a last-minute full-court heave at the buzzer for a game-winning goal. Taff’s goal earned him SBART Player of the Week Honors last week, and the Warriors rode that momentum with two big Citrus Coast League wins the following week. At Channel Islands, the Warriors opened league play with a high-powered offensive attack. Asher Smith continued a dominant season with a team-high six goals, while at least nine other Warriors scored in a 22-3 rout over the Raiders. Two days later, Carpinteria hit the road again to face Hueneme, and claimed its second league victory in a 20-0 shutout over the Vikings. Jake Ehler led the team with five goals, Smith had a hat trick and six more Warriors scored in the win. In Buena-Ventura Tournament play, Carpinteria proved they could compete with Division 2 teams, winning two out of four games and finishing seventh overall. The wins came over Agoura and Camarillo, and at least seven Warriors scored in the four games over the weekend. Smith finished the tournament with 19 goals, and Justin Main played solid on both ends of the pool with 14 goals and strong defense overall. Taff was a force in the net with 45 saves in the four games. “Our young team continues to grow,” said head coach Stephen Kim. Carpinteria is now 6-4 in regular season matches, 2-0 in the Citrus Coast League and 5-3 in tournament play this season.

For the Fall Classic Tournament, the Warriors welcomed nine local squads to compete in two brackets. Carpinteria finished third in the silver division, splitting sets with Azusa and sweeping bracket champion Morro Bay. The Warriors also scored in the double digits against eventual gold bracket champion Calabasas. “We stepped up our play today,” said Carpinteria head coach Greg Novak. “We’ve worked hard to get a groove with the team, and I think we finally found it.” A few days later, the Warriors hosted Santa Paula for a “must win” league game. Carpinteria lost to the Cardinals earlier in the season, but the Warriors rode the momentum from the weekend to keep their playoff hopes alive with a 3-1 victory. Mora led the team in the first two sets with an eleven-point service run to bring the Warriors ahead 2-0 (25-12, 25-16). Santa Paula won the third set (21-25) before Carpinteria sealed the deal in the fourth and final set (25-17) The Warriors will continue their playoff push this week with a final match against Nordhoff.

Warriors volleyball hosts Fall Classic Tournament

Carpinteria girls volleyball had a busy week, with two league victories sandwiched around the annual Fall Classic Tournament over the weekend.

In the first set, Carpinteria fell behind 17-22 before coming back to win 25-23; in the second, Fillmore jumped out to a six-point lead before Warriors libero Ashley Mora helped the team gain momentum with a serving run to tie and eventually win the set 25-20. Carpinteria took control of the final set 25-17.
