Families protest school vaccine mandate

Waving signs such as “I am not an experiment,” “My mom calls the shots” and “I don’t co-parent with the government,” more than three dozen Carpinterians protested Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate for California schools on Monday, joining a statewide protest. Some parents brought their children to the district office for the sit-in – such as Amelia Atkinson, far left, Rio Espinoza, center, and Emma Newkirck, far right – while others kept their children home from school in protest. CUSD Superintendent Diana Rigby said to CVN that the district “expects students to be in school (...) Our students have missed so much in-school in the last 18 months that they really need to be in school.” See more on pg. 5. HERRICK

BRIEFLY Carpinteria man sentenced to 27 years for role in death of Eric Romero

Scott Robert Fleming of Carpinteria was sentenced to 27 years in state prison last week. Fleming was found guilty on several charges in early August for his role in the death of Eric Romero, 32, including assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, voluntary manslaughter and battery causing serious bodily injury, with an additional allegation for personally inflicting great bodily injury in the killing of a man. Fleming was involved in a fight in Carpinteria in 2019, with a group of friends, when Romero tried to de-escalate the fight. Fleming then assaulted him; Romero was transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for his injuries and later passed away. Fleming was awarded the maximum sentence due to previous criminal history, which involved assault and a prior strike. Scott Robert Fleming “This significant conviction was possible due to of Carpinteria was exceptional work on the part of our Santa Barbara sentenced to 27 years in County Sheriff’s Office and members of the public state prison. who witnessed a terrible crime and called 911,” Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley said in August. “This successful prosecution was a direct result of the hard and smart work of Detective Travis Henderson and Senior DDA Kevin Weichbrod.”

Alisal Fire hits 97% containment on Wednesday

The Alisal Fire, which broke out early last week and quickly grew in size, was 97% contained on Wednesday. The fire, which forced the closure of both lanes of Highway 101 north of Goleta, has reached 17,281 acres. Roughly 492 personnel are working to finish containment, down from the nearly 1,800 personnel that had been tackling the fire over the last week. “Low cloud cover, decreased temperatures, higher relative humidity and some drizzle aided firefighters in moderating the Alisal Fire. Small patches of heat and some smoke persists around Droppoint 40. Crews mopped and patrolled all along the fire’s northern edge between Reagan Ranch and into Refugio Canyon,” a press release from the Los Padres National Forest on Tuesday read. “Crews continue to patrol and monitor the fire near the old Sherpa Fire. A small patch of heat remains to the east there, but it poses no threat and firefighters are working to secure it.” The forest service warned that motorists should still be safe while driving on Hwy 101, even though it is now open. All evacuation orders and warnings for the fire are canceled as of Monday. Tuesday saw “good” air quality across the county, compared to the “moderate” air quality that swept the county due to fire last week.

Gregorio Perez of Carpinteria rounds a bend in the trail’s upper reaches, with incredible vistas all around, during 2019’s Island View Trail Run.

Annual Island View Trail Run will be Oct. 30

Runners and hikers will trace the spectacular Franklin Trail for the fifth Annual Island View Trail Run hosted by Santa Barbara County Trails Council (Trails Council) on Saturday, Oct. 30. Three courses – a 4-mile, 10-mile and a 16-mile – head out and back over the area’s longest front-country trail, traversing stretches of trail that were inaccessible 10 years ago. New for this year is also a 20-mile event. “I have been looking forward to this trail run since we skipped last year’s event due to the pandemic,” said Nancy Kaplan, event director. “Locals come out to support their favorite trail, and visitors travel hundreds of miles to collect the incredible views offered by this event. So, if it’s a competition you’re after, we’ve got it. If it’s a fun time for a good cause, we’ve got that, too!” This is the third year of the 16-mile run (5,400 feet elevation gain), which allows participants to climb through chaparral-lined switchbacks to breathtaking views while getting the whole Franklin Trail experience. Franklin is one of the area’s newest trails, and the Island View Trail Run has quickly grown into one of the premier running events in the area. After the Thomas Fire, the trail was rebuilt thanks to community support and hard-working trail crews. In addition,

trail usage had seen a dramatic increase during the pandemic, when many residents turned to outdoors activities like hiking for exercise and leisure. Trail Run organizers expect over 100 participants to join in the four events, celebrating cherished trail opportunities in the region and the community of outdoor enthusiasts who ensure trails remain open for public recreation and enjoyment. Proceeds from the trail run benefit the Franklin Trail Fund, which Trails Council manages. Trails Council, Los Padres Forest Association and Montecito Trails Foundation are collaborating to restore the North Franklin Trail from damages sustained in the Thomas Fire. In 2022, the trail will connect to the backcountry over the crest of the Santa Ynez Mountains.

Carpinteria parents protest California Covid-19 vaccine mandate for schools

BY EVELYN SPENCE

More than three dozen Carpinteria parents joined California parents across the state on Monday in protesting Governor Gavin Newsom’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate for California schools. Protestors – many with their children in tow – waved American flags and drew honks from passing cars. Amidst signs such as “I am not an experiment,” “My mom calls the shots” and “I don’t co-parent with the government,” protestors stood outside of the Carpinteria Unified School District administrative office for a few hours. As part of the protest, parents either took their children with them to sit outside of the district office or kept them out of school – at home – for the day. CUSD Superintendent Diana Rigby said that the district “expects students to be in school.” “Our students have missed so much in-school in the last 18 months that they really need to be in school,” Rigby told CVN. In early October, Newsom announced that once the FDA issues full Covid-19 vaccine approval for children, all schoolchildren will be required to receive the Covid-19 vaccine in order to attend California schools. The mandate would first apply to children in grades seven through 12, and then kindergarten through sixth grade. If the Covid-19 vaccine is approved federally before the end of 2021, students older than 12 would be required to have the vaccine as early as June 2022, Newsom said in his announcement. Under the current plan – unlike other vaccine requirements – the mandate allows for an exemption to the Covid-19 vaccine requirement based on personal beliefs, such as religious or ideological reasons. Kacey Gritt, a Carpinteria parent, said the Carpinteria protest planning began with a group of four or five local moms, and grew from there. She protested on Monday because she believes the mandate is “an issue about choice.” “I believe anybody who wants the vaccine should be able to choose to get it. I also believe anybody who doesn’t want it should be able to make that choice,” she said. “I am not anti-vax, however, I am anti-force and coercion.” “We have a right to bodily autonomy, my children have a right to public education and that is something I’m willing to fight for. I know a lot of parents, myself included that will be pulling their kids from school (public and private) if this mandate goes through,” she added. Gritt said she hopes that CUSD will push back and begin “standing with us” against the Covid-19 vaccine mandate. She added that she has concerns about Covid-19 vaccine complications for her children. Parent Tenille Serpa added that she is hoping that the district “will hear us” and “stand with us.” “My main concern about the vaccine is that there is not enough research and too much risk,” she said. “Mandating a vaccine that is less than five years old with unknown long-term effects and

That’s a risk I am not willing to take for myself or my children.” In the first six weeks of school, the district reported seven Covid-19 cases among its students, and three among its vaccinated staff. Per the district, approximately 90% of school district employees are vaccinated. Current studies show that the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines prevented roughly 95% of symptomatic illness, according to the New York Times. The only Covid-19 vaccine that has received full FDA approval so far is the Pfizer vaccine, which is only fully approved for people 16 and older.

“I believe anybody who wants the vaccine should be able to choose to get it. I also believe anybody who doesn’t want it should be able to make that choice.”

Construction Update: Oct. 12 – Oct. 30

Several lane, on- and off- ramp closures continue as construction moves forward on the Highway 101 project. On the northbound side, one lane between Santa Claus and North Padaro lanes will be closed 9 p.m. through 5 a.m. on Sunday nights, and 8 p.m. through 5 a.m. on Monday through Thursday nights. One lane between Bailard Avenue and Casitas Pass Road will also be closed on Oct. 24, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., and on Oct. 25 – Oct. 28, between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. The Santa Monia Road on- and offramps continue to be closed, for an anticipated reopening of Nov. 22; drivers can detour at South Padaro and Santa Claus lanes. The on-ramp at Wallace Avenue will reopen later this month, on Oct. 30.; drivers can detour at Evans Avenue, Lillie Avenue or at the North Padaro Lane southbound on-ramp. On the southbound side, one lane between North Padaro and Santa Claus Lane will be closed on Sunday nights between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. One lane between Sheffield Drive and Bailard Avenue will also be closed between 8 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. on Monday through Thursday nights. The on- and off-ramps at Sheffield Drive are still closed. The off-ramp is scheduled to reopen at the end of 2021, while the on-ramp will re-open in 2023. In Summerland, construction continues on the new southbound lanes; crews are focusing on installing rebar and pouring concrete on both the new lanes and for the on-ramp at Wallace Avenue. Crews are also pouring concrete for retaining walls and lane improvements near Ortega Hill. At the Evans Avenue undercrossing, construction workers will soon remove portions of the overhang and the retaining wall; at Greenwell Creek, new irrigation will be installed for the tree habitats. At the Sheffield Drive interchange, new columns and side supports are being worked on for the new bridge. Near Padaro Lane, crews continue to work on grading and drainage improvements.

The new concrete mix site, installed earlier this month, remains at the North Padaro interchange, helping crews make concrete for the new northbound paving lanes in Carpinteria. According to a press release from the project, mixing the concrete on-site – reducing water use and saving transportation costs – will save $10 to $15 million. In Carpinteria, crews continue to pave the new concrete, implement drainage improvements and install sound walls. Crews also continue to focus on intersection improvements, such as cross walks, traffic signals and bike lanes, near the Santa Monica and Via Real intersection.

CUSD reports discrepancies in proficiency numbers between white and Hispanic students

At the Carpinteria Unified School Board’s Oct. 12 meeting, Superintendent Diana Rigby discussed the district’s annual goals and student data. The district reported large discrepancies in proficiency numbers between white and Hispanic students, which Rigby called “unacceptable” on the district’s part. In June 2019, 74% of white students in fifth grade English Language Arts met proficiency standards, compared to 47% of Hispanic students; in eighth grade, 80% of white students met proficiency standards, compared to 40% of Hispanic students; and in 11th grade, 79% of white students met proficiency standards, compared to 46% of Hispanic students. In Math, 65% of white students in fifth grade met proficiency standards, compared to 39% of Hispanic students; 76% of white students in eighth grade met proficiency standards, compared to 33% of Hispanic students; and 70% of white students in 11th grade met proficiency standards, compared to 30% of Hispanic students. “We have a significant discrepancy between white and Hispanic students that increases as the grade levels move higher,” Rigby said. “Most of our students are Hispanic. We need to decrease that discrepancy.” The goal, Rigby said, is to show a 10% decrease in numbers between white and Hispanic students by June 2022. “(We also need to focus on) decreasing the discrepancy between students with economic disadvantage and students with non-economic disadvantage. Be-

cause we have 67% of our students who are economically disadvantaged,” Rigby said. The district released data on average reading level and math scores for several grades, including 3, 5, 8 and 11. “We’ve added a particular goal for grade 3,” Rigby said. “We all know that by the end of grade 3, if you’ve not come close to grade-level performance, moving ahead will be extremely difficult, and chances are that you’ll be struggling more and more with academics.” According to the data, as of June of this year, the average reading level for students at the end of grade 3 was 3.1, and the average math was 2.9. By June 2022, Rigby said the district aims to have 60% or more students achieve a 3.9 in reading and math levels. For English Language Arts in 2019, 54% of fifth grade students hit proficiency, compared to 47% of eighth grade students and 56% of 11th grade students. For math in the same year, 46% of fifth grade students reached proficiency; 41% of eighth grade students; and 41% of 11th grade students. Rigby said by June 2022, the district will aim for 60% or more students to achieve grade level proficiency in English Language Arts, and that 50% or more students achieve grade level proficiency in math. Rigby showed the board the average GPA scores at Carpinteria High School and Carpinteria Middle School. In 2021, CMS reported that 61% of its students achieved a 3.0 or higher, and CHS reported that 54% of its students achieved a 3.0

or higher. The goal is to get those numbers up to 70% or higher. “A D or an F in a classroom represents how well the teacher is meeting the needs of all the students in the class,” Rigby emphasized. Rigby clarified that the low grades stem from a combination of missing assignments and failing tests, in response to a question from board member Jaime Diamond. She also went over student participation and engagement, stating that the district hopes to increase both. The data is from the California Healthy Kids survey, which is provided to CUSD seventh, ninth and 11th grade students. From the survey, CUSD in 2021 saw 95.9% average daily attendance, 12.7% chronic absenteeism, a 0.1% dropout rate, 2% suspension rate and a 0% expulsion rate. “It’s always a small group of students that continue to offend over and over again that really challenge us to figure out how we can replace their inappropriate behavior with appropriate behavior,”

Rigby said. CUSD also will focus on improving high school graduation and college readiness rates. As of June 2021, the school reports a 93% graduation rate, a 51% AP/ Honors enrollment rate and a 55% enrollment rate in CTE courses. CUSD also reported that 51% of students met A-G requirements; 55% were college and career ready, and that 13% earned the state seal of biliteracy. The goal is to increase all of those, for a 100% graduation rate, a 20% state seal of biliteracy rate and 60% for everything else. The district will also focus on increasing intervention services to students who are struggling, and to “update and maintain safe facilities for all students and staff.” The goal is to finish the Summerland School and the new CHS administration building by August 2022. In response to Rigby’s presentation, board member Andy Sheaffer suggest-

Barbara was born on Dec. 4, 1924, in Chittenden, Vermont, to Etta Blanchard Clark and Leland Clark. Barbara died peacefully at her home in Carpinteria with her family by her side on Sept. 28, 2021. She was 96 years young and very proud of that. Barbara and Walter are now together again. A message from Barbara: When I was four months old my mother died. I was the seventh child in our family. My father asked my aunt and uncle to raise me since he was not able to manage so many children. I was brought up by Aunt Carrie and Uncle Clarence Blanchard. They were very good to me, and I loved them very much. Growing up in Vermont was great fun helping with the big garden and swimming in the summer. Homemade root beer soda was amazing. And there was also sledding, skating and skiing in the winter. I went to school in a one room schoolhouse and in the winter the farm boys used to bake their potatoes on top of the big potbellied stove. It smelled so good! When I was 15 years old, I met the love of my life, Walter, at Lake Champlain in Vermont. We were each vacationing at the lake with our families. Walter and I saw each other twice before he left for WWII and I left for nursing school in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. I graduated from the Burbank Hospital School of Nursing as an RN with a major in OB/GYN. Walter came home from the war in April of 1946 and we were married two months later. Five wonderful children were born of this union. Ronald Walter (Jennifer), Linda Helen (Steve) Hockins, Carrie Etta (Dave) Kirchner, James William (Renee), and Timothy Allen (Dori); also, 14 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. My nursing career came in very handy as I could work in any state and care for our five children. We moved to Carpinteria in 1957 from Los Angeles. It has been a wonderful city to raise a family in. In the early ‘60s I served as a Carpinteria PTA president, and then became interested in politics in the late ‘70s. I held

posts as president in the Carpinteria Republican Club, The Santa Barbara Republican Club and was on the Santa Barbara County Republican Central Committee. I was so happy to have had two gubernatorial appointee positions. Governor Deukmejian named me to the Medical Quality Review Committee for a four-year term. I reviewed health legislation and made my recommendations on whether the state federation should approve an appointment. Governor Wilson appointed me to the 19th District Agricultural Association. I held vice president and president positions on these boards. I was also on the board at Earl Warren Showgrounds for seven years and I enjoyed recording books for the blind through the Braille Institute in Santa Barbara. A message from Barbara’s family: Mom was our greatest cheerleader. She encouraged us to follow our dreams and make sure we got an education. She had endless energy and was always looking for something fun to do. She used to play the piano for our youth choirs at Carpinteria Community Church. She and Dad had a love of jazz music which led them to jazz festivals and New Orleans several times. They found a small trailer and took us to Yosemite several times where we had unforgettable memories. Mom loved to cook meals in that trailer. Mom also drove that trailer behind a station wagon cross country to Vermont with her sister as Dad was back east on business. All five of us kids in tow. When Dad died in 2013, Mom became a member of the Carpinteria Lions Club. She sure loved all the fun. We asked Mom if there was anything that she had left on her bucket list and she said she had always wanted to go to Alaska. So, she booked a cruise to Alaska and took all five of us kids, our spouses and her good friend Nancy Branigan. Mom only had one rule on this trip, and that was to be on time to dinner and yes, we were never late. We will never forget this memorable trip. Mom was 90 years old at the time of this trip. This past July 4, we had a family get together at Mom’s house and a large group of our family were able to come home. We are so glad we all had this time with Mom. After Mom’s first stroke in July, she was improving every day to the amazement of everyone. She was one tough cookie! Sadly, there was a second stroke two months later that she could not recover from. Mom has told us many times “I had a wonderful life and now I can make music with Dad again. Just like that! “ A celebration of Barbara’s life will take place at the Carpinteria Lions Club Park on Sunday, Nov. 28 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Carpinteria Lions Club, PO Box 191, Carpinteria, CA 93013.

“It’s important we keep discourse about these important issues civil and open and maintain relationships between family and friends who might find themselves on different sides of an issue that has brought fear to so many.”

––Dan Patterson

Concerns on El Carro Dog Park

While I don’t feel I was misquoted in the Oct. 14 CVN report (Vol. 28, No. 4) on the off-leash dog park, I think I was “underquoted.” In the first third of my comments, I stated that I agree with the need for dogs to exercise, socialize and just plain run around with gay abandon. I also stated that some people, especially seniors, have had increased levels of stress, anxiety, isolation, depression and even marked physical deterioration caused by the pandemic-related isolation. Meeting in the park has given the community a safe place to interact outdoors. The mixed-use aspect is still a concern, as having dogs and athletes at the same time in the same place is a potential health and safety hazard. C-Dog says they have obtained a lighter weight fence to divide the areas which will help. I suggested dog owners use the northeast or southeast quadrants, or at least the center of the field, to buffer the noise even when the fence isn’t used. While I’m sure people balked at the idea of a mesh muzzle, it might help in training anxious dogs while still letting them drink and eat. I applaud C-Dog and the city staff in recognizing and being willing to mitigate some of my concerns, while continuing to work on this important necessity in our wonderful community.

Let’s keep our heads, Carpinteria

As some of you may or may not know, there was a statewide school walk-out in support of medical freedom on Monday, Oct. 18. This was attended by parents, children, and school staff who believe in their basic human right to choose what they put (or don’t put) into their bodies. Pretty fundamental, right? Had this happened in 2018, it would have been kind of a head scratcher. “Well of course it’s your right!” you might have said, “Does this really necessitate a school walk out?” Well, throw in the events of the last 20 months or so, and not only do you have those freedoms under threat, but you have members of our small community calling kids and parents in attendance of yesterday’s walk out “stupid,” “Karens,” and other unsavory names.

Even our little community is a complex system; let’s fight the temptation to divide into binary camps. It’s worth noting that the majority of community interactions at Monday’s gathering were positive, even supportive.

Lack of common sense

This is a recent response to a concerned letter writer’s approach to very concerning political times (“Check your bias,” CVN, Vol. 28, No. 4). The letter writer critiques a previous letter while bloviating her own opinion. Diana Thorn was actually correct. Common sense has disappeared in a class of people who choose to wear a mask and blinders, living life placing faith in biased, indoctrinating media that covers up the truth. President Joe Biden botched the vaccine program that former President Trump gifted him. Biden lied about Afghanistan, saying he was going by Trump’s withdrawal timeline, when it was he who scrapped the plan, ending in 13 Americans senselessly killed. How would you like to be thrown into the Dark Ages overnight like those people? It’s Biden’s decision to stop the Keystone pipeline and open the border while greenlighting Russia’s pipeline. Use some common sense. When you go shopping for groceries and you find bare shelves, thank Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for executive actions and backroom deals with unions for that.

Firefighters, dads and Carpinterians: Getting to know the men behind the blaze BY DEBRA HERRICK

When the Alisal Fire broke out roughly two weeks ago, all eyes turned to Santa Barbara County’s northern coastline. But no residents had a closer eye than the region’s firefighters. As the fire nears full containment, three Carpinteria firefighters offered their insight on the new reality in California: fire season all year long.

Firefighters Jude Tantoco, left, and Sam Dudley, right, rest for a moment on the outskirts of the Sherpa Fire.

KARLSSON

Firefighter Brian Lombardi and his son Franco share a moment at the unveiling of the Romero Fire monument.

Brian Lombardi, Firefighter Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District

Last year, Brian Lombardi was named Firefighter of the Year, nominated by his peers. He began his career as a firefighter with Los Padres National Forest in 2008 before joining Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District in 2017. He lives in Summerland, where he moved to two years ago after living in Carpinteria for over 20 years. He shares his life with his wife Lidia and children, Franco, 6, and Bruno, 3. The Lombardis are also expecting a new baby at the end of November. Lombardi, who became a firefighter because he had a desire to help people, was at the Alisal Fire for five continuous days starting on the first afternoon, Oct. 11. He said he had encountered past fires in that same area and that the Alisal Fire was behaving similarly. He called the fire a front country fire – burning down the front of the Los Padres Mountains in the Santa Ynez Mountain Range. “(The Alisal Fire) was pretty weather driven so as soon as the weather was controlled, we had a pretty good handle on it,” Lombardi said. For Lombardi, the Thomas Fire set the bar for unexpected fire behavior and speed of advancement in the area. “That fire burned a considerable amount of acres and the distance it travelled and the weather events we had going on – lasted a long time,” he said. While fighting fires is, by its nature, dangerous work, Lombardi doesn’t feel afraid when he’s out facing a fire. “You always have your safety in the front of your mind,” he said, “and luckily we work with a great number of firefighters in this local area.”

Sam Dudley became a firefighter in 2008 and after working as a wildland firefighter with the U.S. Forest Service for seven years, he joined Santa Barbara County Fire Department in 2015. Dudley met his wife, Erica Gonzalez, in Carpinteria, where she has lived most of her life. He soon moved to Carpinteria to be with Erica and later to raise his two children, Beau, 4, and Madison, 7. Dudley drives a ladder truck for Station 11 in Goleta. Ladder trucks don’t typically respond to vegetation fires, he said, but he was called up on day two of the Alisal Fire to help prevent a facility near the Tajiguas Landfill on Gaviota Coast from catching fire. He also worked to backfill duties behind firefighters out in the field fighting Alisal. Since the fire started, he has worked long shifts at the station and has only been home for two days. Dudley said that firefighters in California have many years of practice fighting wildfires and have gotten very good at it, but noted that it is always powerful to see what wind coupled with wildfire can do. “That wind has such a major influence on fire on that coastline,” Dudley said. “The winds are very strong and they can drive a fire very quickly. It’s always a good reminder to see how powerful Mother Nature can be.” Dudley said that wind is a very normal occurrence on that stretch of coastline, emphasizing that “the wind out there can be very impressive, whether it’s fire season or not.” The Jesusita Fire was one of the first major local fires that Dudley helped fight – and it was also personal for him. The fire was burning in Mission Canyon where he used to live and still has friends. “I remember seeing some of my friends’ homes burning and that really stuck in my memory.” A lot of organization and “just plain old hard work” goes into putting fires out, he said. “It’s impressive to see all the agencies across California working together to accomplish a common goal.”

Loren Bass, Firefighter Montecito Fire Protection District

Firefighter Loren Bass visits the Howard School where his children, Crosby, pictured, and Marin, attend.

While still in college, Loren Bass began his career in fire protection. Bass joined the Moraga Orinda Fire District while studying liberal arts at Hope International University in the San Francisco East Bay. In 2002, he moved to Santa Barbara and started working at the Montecito Fire Protection District, and by 2010, he was living in Carpinteria with his wife Carly. The Basses have two children: Marin, 8, and Crosby, 4. For Bass, the Alisal Fire has been similar to the Sherpa Fire – a standard Santa Barbara sundowner fire that starts on the top of the ridge and then burns down to the ocean propelled by sundowner winds. “It’s a weather event we have on the South Coast,” he said. “Sundowner fires are Sherpa, Painted Cave, Tea, Alisal; the Sherpa fire – which I was on – was a sundowner fire a couple canyons away, just to the east.” Firefighters aren’t getting much of a break this year, Bass said, noting how much effort has gone into putting out this year’s Dixie Fire in Northern California, which has burned nearly 1 million acres and is the largest single wildfire in California history. “I was up north at the Dixie Fire and it was the same thing every day, it was like Groundhog Day, the fire didn’t want to go out,” Bass said. “Probably all the firefighters in the area went up there at least once – I don’t think anyone got away from that one.” “Fire season isn’t over yet. They say it doesn’t even go away anymore. Now its high fire season and low fire season. There used to be fire season and not fire season. Just because we had a little bit of rain doesn’t mean it’s over,” he added.

Navigating the seasons in-between CVN

FLY BY F R A N D AV I S During the lockdown I made a rubber band ball. I didn’t make sourdough bread or take up any of the other creative pastimes others did. I collected the pink, blue and beige rubber bands that came wrapped around newspapers, carrot bunches and celery sticks. I figured watching the rubber ball grow was as good a way of measuring days as any, a metaphor for the stretchiness of time that felt both measureless and limited. Like everyone, I felt the days slide by uneventfully, with none of the family celebrations, gatherings with friends or neighborly chats that give shape and meaning to our lives. It has been a very long trip from fear and isolation to timorous trust with the Covid-19 vaccine’s arrival. Vaccinated and masked up, I finally abandoned Instacart deliveries and ventured out to shop. In Albertsons aisles the choices suddenly seemed infinite; products had moved around, new ones appeared and others disappeared. Fearing Delta, I was wary of strangers. I’d heard of a few breakthroughs – vaccinated people who got the virus anyway – although with milder cases. Like the days, the seasons have slipped by. Fall arrived abruptly with bins of sweating pumpkins and gourds outside the markets, air scented with cinnamon-infused pinecones. Weren’t those cones supposed to wait for Christmas? Venturing into Costco, I was struck dumb by the vision of a ghostly skeleton couple, and behind them a lighted Christmas tree. I know commerce has always collapsed the seasons for marketing purposes. But it feels especially disorienting now. What happened to summer, days so veiled in fog it could have been any season? And the warm summer days we were supposed to have in September and October? I remember a few and then zip, straight into fall and Xmas. And where did that skull-cracking thunderstorm come from? The weather has been as trippy as the times. I think of now as an in-between season. I can flip a page on the calendar, but it seems meaningless. The clothes hanging in my closet confuse me. Lighter summer things that I never had a chance to wear. Filmy scarves draping a hat rack flutter as I walk by. Is it time to pull out warmer scarves? Normalcy has slipped away, and all I want is escape. I considered a trip to the redwoods before the fire there, and they dressed the biggest giants in foil skirts. My husband Roger and I did manage a trip up the coast north of Santa Cruz and passed by the burned ruins of Big Basin. Along Highway 1, there were miles of blackened pines and redwoods that burned so hot they will never recover. An old family homestead in the mountains, built by my ancestors in the 1800s, perished in the Caldor Fire. It was a paradise when I visited there as a child – the old house, pine trees and meadow, icy stream and apple orchard. Gone but for a vivid memory. As I write this, the Alisal Fire is burn-

ing north of where I live in Goleta. We South Coast dwellers like to say we live with fire. But climate change has upped the ante. Fires – fiercer, hotter – can now build their own storm systems, and firenadoes, fire clouds and fire tornadoes, are so daunting to control and so dangerous to fire fighters. So, I’ll be keeping an eye on that fire, watch for updates, make sure my to-go bag is ready and stay inside with the windows closed. And do a little praying. When the coast is clear, maybe I’ll buy a little sack of those cinnamon pinecones in preparation for the better season to come. One good thing: children’s laughter on the playground.

Celebrating the changing seasons in our gardens mingbirds, native insects and monarch butterflies. If you plant fruit trees, be certain to look for “low-chill” varieties which do best in our mild climate. Incorporating a few native perennial plants into your existing landscape is another great way to include the non-human world in your habitat. Native plants are water-wise and fire-resilient, since they have evolved over thousands of years in our fire-prone and summer-dry ecology. Native plants are also far more effective at feeding the many native beneficial insects and birds which share urban landscapes with us. Some of my favorite local sources for regionally appropriate plantings are the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, Santa Barbara Natives and Yes Yes Nursery. And finally, make sure to include edible abundance in your home landscape. Fall is a great time to plant strawberries, garlic, leeks and onions; root vegetables such as beets, carrots and turnips; leafy greens such as kale, collards, cabbage, lettuce and Swiss chard; and herbs such as dill, cilantro and parsley. Growing even a small portion of your own food in your backyard or in raised beds or pots in a nearby sunny spot is such a simple and fulfilling way to feel more connected to the seasons, our local ecology and our own good health.

FIELD NOTES

EXPLORING THE VALLEY’S WILD AND CULTIVATED SPACES

ALENA STEEN Here in the mountains, just behind Carpinteria, fall is definitely in the air. Shadows are sharper in the slanting, golden light, the early mornings are crisp, and flocks of goldfinches are busy feasting on all the seeds ripening in the garden: nodding heads of sunflowers, echinacea and grasses. While I was grateful for the light dusting of rain and the incredible lightning show a few weeks ago, the Alisal Fire is a clear reminder that our long fire season in southern California still has several months before winter rains bring relief. The turn towards shorter days and slower plant growth can be a hard thing for gardeners such as myself to accept. There is something so thrilling and sustaining about the pace of growth and harvest throughout the growing season that is hard to let go. Winter dormancy is an important part of regeneration; fall and early winter can actually be some of the busiest times of year in a happy, healthy Southern California garden. We live in a landscape that is defined by rain and its absence, and smart gardening should do the same. As we eagerly anticipate winter rains, it’s the perfect time to plan for next summer’s growth by focusing on building healthy soil, creating plans for water retention to harvest all that the winter brings and planting trees, native perennials and a cool season veggie garden. Growing healthy soil is the root of all sustainable farming and gardening. Especially after the vigorous growth of spring and summer, soil needs some support in rebuilding health and vitality. I like to think of these processes of manual labor as an act of reciprocity and thanksgiving for all that our gardens so generously share during the growing season. Healthy soil is bursting with millions of microorganisms and the slim runners of mycelial networks whose life cycles and decay bring water, oxygen and nutrients into the topsoil, thereby directly feeding your garden at the roots. Healthy soil can also hold far more water, since it is full of air pockets and is far looser and more friable, allowing water to soak in

Make sure to include a few native plantings in your landscape. Here, an overwintering monarch butterfly nectars on the native California rose at the Carpinteria Garden Park. and saturate instead of running off. The best way to build healthy soil is to add rich layers of homemade or high-quality compost and to mulch with leaves or wood chips. In both our kitchen veggie garden and small flower and herb farm, we do this without disturbing the surface of the soil, in a practice known as “no-till,” meaning we are using neither machines nor tools to break up the soil surface. Soil-surface disruption exposes the microorganisms which build healthy soil to light and air, which is often harmful to them. Instead, we cut or mow down the summer’s growth to the ground. Then we add a few inches of homemade compost to the soil surface, install irrigation such as drip tape or emitters above the compost so that gentle soakings will begin to blend the compost with the topsoil and add a thick layer of wood chips above the irrigation, to protect the compost from direct sunlight. Once you have the backbone of a sustainably healthy garden, it’s time to plant. Fall and early winter is the best time to plant fruit trees and perennials in our climate, thanks to temperatures that are cool but not freezing and the benefit of winter rains to spare irrigation. Planting trees is one of the most gracious and hopeful acts we can engage in as humans – plant fruit or medicine trees

SCHOOL NOTES

Rolling out the staterequired vaccine mandate CVN

SUPERINTENDENT’S DESK DIANA RIGBY CHS resumed its POUND afterschool workout classes recently, which are open to all students.

High schoolers resume POUND workout classes

Carpinteria High School students are back in business with their POUND workout classes, an afterschool program sponsored by the Pro Deo Foundation. The program, open to all students on Wednesdays, provides workout classes to help students stay healthy, as well as mentoring and touring sections. The workout class is led by science department chair Mandi de Witte. “The workout is a high energy class with choreography set to popular music, and uses lightly weighted drumsticks called Ripstix to mimic the motion of drumming. Students work up a sweat having to squat down to drum on the floor while rocking out and having a good time exercising together,” de Witte said.

CUSD SUPERINTENDENT

Earlier this month, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will add the Covid-19 vaccine to the list of vaccinations that are required for in-person school attendance. The requirement will be phased in by grade and will apply to all public and private elementary and secondary school students. In addition, all staff will be required to be vaccinated when the requirement takes effect for students. The student vaccine mandate will be implemented in two phases: first for grades seven to 12, and then for grades kindergarten through six. Upon full approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of a Covid-19 vaccine for age groups within a grade span, the CDPH will initiate the rule-making process and the needed regulations to address the necessary details of the requirement, such as the scope of the exemptions that must

be included. The regulations will take effect at the start of the following term, either Jan. 1 or July 1, in order to give parents and local educational agencies sufficient time to prepare and implement the requirement. Currently, the CDPH requires all K–12 staff to provide proof of full Covid-19 vaccination or submit to weekly testing. This announcement removes the testing allowance; there will be solely a vaccine mandate when the requirement takes effect for students.

SCHOOL BOARD: Continued from page 7

Carpinteria Middle School sixth graders tackle their swim unit at the pool.

Sixth graders tackle swimming, weekly labs

During this fall semester, Carpinteria Middle School sixth graders participated in the school’s swim unit in the pool, which CMS Principal Lisa O’Shea said allowed them to have “a fun time while learning a valuable skill.” Students also have weekly labs to build skills and scientific knowledge.

ed that the district should create more non-collegiate-focused pathways for students who are struggling academically. He also went on a digression, making negative comments about cell phones and e-sports, and stated that “boys and girls are different” and that “boys need to take risks.” Diamond disagreed with Sheaffer on his comments on students struggling academically. She shared that she had struggled in school, and who had been kicked out of her high school, due to an undiagnosed learning disability. “Literally the second I had treatment for that, I went into AP and honors courses and became an A, B student,” Diamond emphasized. “There are a lot of families who don’t have the knowledge of support to find help. They don’t realize their students are struggling with some type of learning disability, and that’s definitely on us as a school district to help identify those students.” “We need to find what motivates these kids. We need to find out how to engage them,” Diamond added. Rigby strongly disagreed with board

comments over students struggling academically, stating that the goal is for all students to at least attend city college. “High school isn’t enough,” she emphasized. “No student in Carpinteria should be earning a D or an F (...) every student needs to learn our content, whether you are going to be a plumber, or you’re going to be an airplane mechanic, or you’re going to fish,” Rigby said.

Board rejects liability claim

During the closed session, the board, in a 5-0 vote, rejected a liability claim filed by Howard Taylor on Sept. 28, 2021.

Donations

The board also accepted two donations. Kathryn Greene, from the local Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, donated the book “Twenty-One Steps” by Jeff Gottesfield to the elementary and middle school libraries. California Women of Agriculture donated $500 to Canalino and Aliso school libraries, to purchase books about agriculture.

One of the many reasons I love sharing my recipes is that I get to learn about the history of what I’m making. I knew whoopie pies originated in New England, but I was surprised to learn the story that Pennsylvanians claim. It is said that Amish cooks would scoop extra cake batter and sandwich them together with a cream filling. When children opened their lunchboxes and found this delicious dessert, they would shout, “Whoopie! Meanwhile, in Maine, people claim that the first whoopie pies were created in 1925 by a bakery in Lewiston, Maine. Maine celebrates an annual Whoopie Pie Festival. Ultimately, food historians may never know where these delights actually originated. Whoopie pies can be made in a variety of flavors including such as chocolate, pumpkin, red velvet, vanilla or even confetti, and can be filled with just about anything. They are a fun and refreshing way to enjoy cake and a great addition to any kind of party or barbeque – kids go crazy for them! I really enjoy the pumpkin whoopie pies because they are a perfect fall treat, and very easy to make. In this recipe, the pies are rather large; feel free to make them smaller, just make sure to adjust the baking time. I hope you all enjoy this recipe and have a happy Halloween!

CVN sees new heights in New Hampshire

Carpinteria

Carpinterian Chris Hecox took a trip to visit her son Jeff in his adopted New Hampshire home, where she got to – in her words – see colorful fall foliage, taste lobster rolls in Portsmouth, and visit historic sights. Hecox said one of the highlights of her trip was when she took a copy of CVN to the top of Mt. Washington on a train – all the way to the tippy-top at 6,288 feet high.

Publish: October 7, 14, 21, 2021 NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE TS No. CA-21-891920-SH Order No.: 210320667-CA-VOI YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED 3/19/2007. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 to the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state, will be held by duly appointed trustee. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. BENEFICIARY MAY ELECT TO BID LESS THAN THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE. Trustor(s): ADELA RODRIGUEZ, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN Recorded: 3/27/2007 as Instrument No. 2007-0022023 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of SANTA BARBARA County, California; Date of Sale: 11/10/2021 at 1:00PM Place of Sale: At the main entrance to the County Courthouse, located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $558,363.13 The purported property address is: 1341 JUNE ST, CARPINTERIA, CA 93013-1727 Assessor’s Parcel No.: 003-552-034 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date

has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this internet website http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-21-891920-SH. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 916-939-0772, or visit this internet website http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-21-891920-SH to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the sale is set aside for any reason, including if the Trustee is unable to convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s Agent, or the Beneficiary’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only.

Long live the Masonic Lodge

The Carpinteria Masonic Lodge’s long history began on the second floor of the Knights of Pythias building on Linden Avenue at Wullbrandt Way. Charter members Guy Bliss, Charles Anderson, Westley Hickey, James Deaderick, Amos Olney, Jerome Tubbs, Henry Fish, DeWitt Humphrey, Mads Christensen, Tom Fish, Glenn Hickey, Floyd Hickey, John Ogan and George Senteney held their first meeting on Dec. 13, 1913, and the charter was made official on Oct. 14, 1914. One hundred and seven years later, Carpinteria Masonic Lodge No. 444 continues to be a supportive organization to the community, sponsoring the annual Carpinteria Spelling Bee for Middle School, contributing to the Carpinteria High School Kitchen Remodel Fund, acknowledging monthly student recognition, and providing two annual high school student scholarships. The current Carpinteria Masonic Lodge #444 is located at 5421 Carpinteria Ave., next to the post office.

Carpinteria shows Warrior spirit at homecoming game BY RYAN P. CRUZ • PHOTOS BY ROSANA SWING

Spirit Week came to an end under the Friday night lights at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium, where the Warriors took the field against Citrus Coast League leader Nordhoff. Carpinteria has had a tough season on the football field, but the Warrior faithful showed up to support the team, celebrate the 2021 homecoming court, and show that “Warrior Spirit Never Dies.” The students on this year’s court embody the school’s spirit of great character, hard work and inspiring others. This year’s king and queen also represent Carpinteria’s sports values, Athletic Director Pat Cooney said, as senior volleyball standout Alex Zapata and defensive lineman for the football team Bryan Alpizar were crowned during the halftime ceremony. “Alex Zapata and Bryan Alpizar are both fantastic representatives of core Warrior values,” Cooney said. Zapata has been a star on the volleyball court, leading the Warriors to second place in the Citrus Coast League, and notching home field advantage in their first playoff game. Alpizar is one of the Warrior ’s seniors, playing defensive tackle and navigating what has been a

struggle of a season. In spite of their record, Carpinteria’s seniors are trying to get the most out of their final games this season, and on Friday faced a strong Nordhoff Rangers team that came into the match unbeaten in league play. The Rangers started out fast, with a 21-point first quarter on their way to a 35-0 halftime lead. Nordhoff held on to shutout Carpinteria with a final score of 48-0. The Warriors have had a hard time putting points on the board this year, averaging less than four points per game, and was shutout in six out of eight losses this season. Carpinteria falls to 0-8 on the season, and hits the road for two final games against league rivals Hueneme and Santa Paula. Hueneme is 6-2 this year, and unbeaten at 2-0 in Citrus Coast League play. The Vikings are riding high on a five-game winning streak and haven’t lost a game since Sept. 10 against Thousand Oaks. The teams will line up in Hueneme at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22.

Warriors girls volleyball gets second in league, headed to CIF playoffs

After a hot streak of three league wins in a row, the Carpinteria girls volleyball team took a tough loss to Citrus Coast League champion Nordhoff, who swept the Warriors 3-0. In the final regular season game of the year, Carpinteria hosted the Rangers, who are undefeated in league play at 10-0. The first set was close, but Nordhoff edged out Carpinteria 22-25. The second set was handled easily by the Rangers, 9-25, and the Warriors fought back in the third but ultimately fell 19-25. The loss puts their league record at 6-4, earning second place in the competitive Citrus Coast League. Senior outside hitter Alex Zapata once again led the Warriors stat sheet with seven kills, two blocks and three aces, while junior Ainslee Anderson was right on her heels with seven kills and three aces of her own. Coach Bret Shellabarger said the Warriors are looking forward to joining the CIF playoff schedule against Santa Clara on Thursday, Oct. 21, where the girls hope to win and advance to the second round. With a win in the first round, Carpinteria would face either Amino or Pacific Christian.

In the latest CIF Southern Section polls, the Warriors are ranked at the top in girls tennis, as the team gets ready to wrap up the season with only a few games left. After jumping to a 6-0 start to league play, the Warriors snagged two more victories against Hueneme and Fillmore, but struggled against a strong Malibu team who was able to hand Carpinteria a streak-snapping loss. Wind was a factor against Hueneme, but the Warriors were able to hold on to a 15-3 match victory. Coach Charles Bryan said that windy conditions caused some adjustments to soft shots and returns. “It is normally windy at Hueneme but today had a bit more of a bite to it, ‘’ Bryant said. “Any ball that was hit softly never came close to the destination it was intended.” All three doubles teams went 3-0, and Bryant said the team of Natalie Martizez and Ariana Lounsbury had been putting in work earlier in the week to prepare. “Natalie and Ariana played really well today, I thought,” Bryant said. “They put in a lot of extra time at practice yesterday and they were quite adept to the wind.” Silke Leonard and Zahra Porinsh also continued their singles domination, with three-set sweeps in the win. The warriors showcased consistency and aggressive doubles play in the 15-3 win over Fillmore, Bryan said, and only lost two games in doubles on the day. In singles, Fillmore put up a fight, forcing a tiebreak win in singles play, but Leaonard and sisters Zahra and Sasha Porinsh were able to hold on for the Warriors. Riding an eight-game Citrus Coast League win streak, the Warriors faced windy conditions yet again in the 5-13 loss against Malibu, who was replenished and ready for the rematch with Carpinteria. “They had a few players missing the first time around who made a huge difference today; and we had some players who played in the first meeting who were not present today,” Bryant said. “That combination was a hole we just could not dig ourselves out of. But I give Malibu credit. They soundly beat us and we can offer zero excuses.” With a win against Nordhoff in the final league game, the Warriors will be Citrus League co-champions with Malibu, who was ranked #2 in Monday’s CIF polls. “We know what is at stake and I am hoping we turn in a champion performance,” Bryant said. Carpinteria is now 12-5 overall and 8-1 in the Citrus Coast League, with one game remaining in the season.

Cate continues 8-man football domination with sixth win in a row

Top-ranked Cate’s 8-man football has rolled to an undefeated 6-0 season, including its latest 42-34 victory over a tough Faith Baptist squad. The Rams continued to showcase a high-powered offense, led by seniors Ethan Ligon and Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table’s player of the week, quarterback Will Bouma. Bouma continued a strong season with six touchdown passes in the hard-fought victory. After Faith Baptist tied the game at 34-34 with 1:03 left, Bouma tossed a 19-yard touchdown to Ligon with 47 seconds left on the clock that was enough to get the win. Senior Mason Oetgen sealed the deal with a clutch interception with 17 seconds left, putting the game away for the Rams. “Will Bouma was just plain outstanding from his QB position,” coach Ben Soto said. He said that Bouma being named player of the week was no surprise. “Indeed a deserving award for the season that this young man is having.” Ligon caught three touchdowns, Matty Holmes caught one, and Oetgen brought in two of his own in addition to the game-sealing interception. Cate is now 6-0, heading into a rivalry game on Saturday, Oct. 23 against Thacher. Both teams are undefeated, and Cate is currently ranked #1 while Thacher is right behind at #2 in the 8-man polls.

Surfliner schedule changes coming Oct. 25

The Los Angeles, San Diego, San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency, which manages the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner service, will implement major schedule adjustments for the Pacific Surfliner that will include further restoration of service across the corridor as well as sweeping changes to existing train schedules. The improvements will enhance the reliability and connectivity of trains that travel between San Diego and San Luis Obispo counties. Pacific Surfliner trains have been operating on a reduced schedule since March 2020 due to a pandemic-related drop in travel demand. The upcoming schedule change builds on the partial service restoration that was implemented in June 2021, and also moves towards pulsed schedules, which evenly distribute trains to provide maximum service coverage. Effective Oct. 25, the following changes will be made: One additional round-trip will be added that travels the length of the corridor. Most train departure and arrival times will shift to evenly space them out across the day for more consistent frequencies. Many train numbers will change. And, the schedule will be consistent for both weekday and weekend travel. For the latest information, visit pacificsurfliner.com/ schedules.
