The Story of CARP Growers

Content provided by CARP Growers, your local cannabis farmers group. Learn more at carpgrowers.org

better together

In the spring of 2018, a group of local cannabis farmers came together to form an association that valued compliance and transparency while committing itself to supporting the Community of Carpinteria. The proposition that cannabis farming was new and needed to earn its place was a fair bargain. Representing its local roots and dedication to responsible farming, the association named itself CARP Growers, the acronym CARP meaning Cannabis Association for Responsible Producers. Membership standards continue to elevate how farmers in the valley operate. Even before it was required by Santa Barbara County, all members committed to using safe and effective odor control technology. All members recycle water, use Integrated Pest Management, use blackout curtains to prevent light pollution and contribute membership dues to support community causes that improve the local quality of life. Today, there are 10 member farms who represent the best-of-the-best in cannabis farm operations, not just locally but across the state. By vetting members and remaining active and involved in community relations, CARP Growers has been able to hold cannabis farmers accountable to all stakeholders in Carpinteria Valley.

Santa Barbara County Prop. 64 2016


Changing the World State by State

California voters overwhelming approved Prop. 64, legalizing adult-use cannabis. Depending on who you ask, 2016 either seems like eons ago or just yesterday. We now have cannabis farms, cannabis retail and a whole legal supply chain in the State of California. Santa Barbara County residents voted nearly 2/3rds in favor of cannabis legalization in 2016. In just two years since cannabis taxes began in 2018, the State of California has collected over $1 billion in taxes from the industry. Santa Barbara County has so far collected $20 million in taxes from cannabis farms. This brand new revenue stream for state and local governments is a big reason why voters got behind legalization. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR LOCAL 2020 WINNERS AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR PUBLIC SERVICE!


Opening the doors to SBCC Horticultural Students Every year Horticultural Students at Santa Barbara City College take a field trip to Carpinteria to tour a cannabis farm. Students get the benefit of learning about state-of-the-art greenhouse farming operations and experiencing new local opportunities in farming. Cannabis farming is an attractive industry for young horticulturalists whether they’d like to work with the plants or on the business side of the operation to tap into an expanding state-wide marketplace.

Community Partnership with 93013 Fund In the earliest days of COVID-19, nobody knew how to react or what support the community would need. Carpinteria Sunset Rotary Club, in collaboration with CARP Growers, wanted to establish a fund that would quickly meet needs right here in the 93013. With seed money from cannabis farmers, the Sunset Rotary Club Foundation established the 93013 Fund to ensure needs get met in Carpinteria. To date, the 93013 Fund has raised $195,000, which thus far has resulted in 40,000 meals for families and seniors, over 1,000 school supply kits to support distance learning, scholarships Paid Advertisement


to childcare centers and grant funding to many nonprofits to keep the lights on. Most recently, 93013 Fund provided funding to school parent groups to help prepare classrooms for a safe reopening. Whenever possible, the fund was spent in the local economy. 93013 Fund remains active through Sunset Rotary Club Foundation, and donations are still welcome as community needs change and the pandemic persists. Best of all, every donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar until the fund reaches its goal of $200,000. VISIT WWW.93013FUND.ORG TO CONTRIBUTE.

Alarcon elected to Carpinteria City Council, Nomura reelected With 100% of precincts reporting, Natalia Alarcon has won a seat on the Carpinteria City Council, according to the semi-official results released by the county of Santa Barbara Elections Office.

In her first term, she will also be the only female councilmember. “I’m really grateful and so honored that the Carpinteria community has entrusted me to be their next representative,” said Alarcon after election night.

Many Carpinterians will be surprised to learn that incumbent Rogelio Delgado has lost his bid for reelection to a second term on the Carpinteria Unified School District’s Board of Trustees, according to the semi-official results (100% of precincts reported) from Santa Barbara County Office of Elections. The school board race for two open seats had five candidates.

Wade Nomura has been reelected to Carpinteria City Council. “I think this is the beginning of what’s to come on the Council and I hope that I’ve inspired other people to step up to the plate and give it a shot.”

“If you want an example of what not to do, go north 90 minutes to Pismo Beach. Since 1993, the city has constantly promoted tourism development. In the past five years, two large hotels have taken up the last bit of open space in the downtown it had to offer its citizens.”

–– Mike Dunham

Don’t do what Pismo did

I have loved all there is about Carpinteria for my entire 63 years. My parents have owned a house there for 50 years. Carpinteria has been able to hold onto its identity by listening to its citizens. The effort to preserve the Bluffs proves that Carpinterians choose quality of life over the lure of big development. The community garden is a great use of space that brings people together. I believe the Surfliner hotel project is a terrible idea for downtown Carpinteria. If you want an example of what not to do, go north 90 minutes to Pismo Beach. Since 1993, the city has constantly promoted tourism development. In the past five years, two large hotels have taken up the last bit of open space the downtown had to offer its citizens. Nobody actually lives in downtown Pismo anymore. There is no sense of community. It’s not unusual to circle for 45 minutes looking for a place to park. Most cottages have been torn down or turned into vacation rentals owned by people that don’t live in Pismo Beach. All new construction goes from lot line to lot line, not allowing for any green space. When tourists bring a dog with them, the dogs have to do their business on the sidewalk, street, hotel landscaping or on the beach. The people for the Surfliner project will tell you how much transient occupancy tax the city will rake in. They will say that it will be great for business and create new jobs. In Pismo, the same construction company built the last two downtown hotels. Their crews were from San Diego. Work trucks took up all the street parking for five years. Merchants suffered. Local citizens avoid downtown Pismo. Say no to the Surfliner hotel project.

Mike Dunham Pismo Beach

Carpinteria, don’t sell out

Carpinteria is quite literally the last small beach community in Southern California. The only area from here to San Diego of undeveloped land is the Marine Corps Camp Pendleton. Thank goodness for the Marines and the Federal Government. A large roadside sign is necessary to indicate that you are entering any beach community south of Carpinteria. From Ventura to Carlsbad, they’ve all been overrun with commercial and residential development. Carpinteria is the last of its species. A new hotel is being considered; when the name Carpinteria is brought up at some developer ’s marketing forecast meeting, they must all be sitting there and salivating… just as in our Chamber of Commerce and current City Council.

I see to that there is to be $5 million to be paid in “terms of rent and in terms of trades.” Although I’m not sure just what “in terms of“ actually means or translates to. Will it create better street lighting? Or, maybe it’ll be used to fix the traffic and parking issues in town? What does half a million a year actually mean? What is not presented, offered or considered is the long-term effect of the city having to live with the new commercial development: increased traffic and reduced parking. Just where is this proposed parking lot to be located? What open space is going to be given up to provide a parking lot for hotel guests? Unfortunately, eventually it’ll happen.  It’ll become simply too financially tempting. A developer will make an offer too tempting to resist. What that eventual offer might be, no matter what, it will never be able to buy the legacy, heritage, tradition and history of Carpinteria. Many Carpinteria families would never forgive what further development would impose on their city. Demonstrate respect and be damned thankful you’re here! 

Frank Torreano Carpinteria

Hotel redux

We are now being bombarded with advertising and propaganda by the developers of a proposed hotel on a public parking lot. They have even given it a cute name, “Surfliner,” in order to make it feel more appealing and comfortable. And they are not building a quaint little 10-room B&B designed to look like a train depot. There is nothing cute or quaint about this hotel. It is a super-mega McMansion in the boringly typical style of today’s modern architecture. It is a huge building: 40 luxury rooms with baths, a lobby, a kitchen and laundry facilities. It’s a massive structure that will dominate our sightlines and permanently damage the open ambiance of our beach and park. An enclosed roof is a third floor that will further intrude on our skyline, not to mention the lights and noise that will result. If you recall, it was not that long ago that our pro-development City Council was set to approve another hotel—this one on the Bluffs. It took tremendous effort, dedication and fundraising by “the people” in order to buy the Bluffs outright and keep them forever out of the hands of those people who would put revenue before the will and benefit of citizens. And now the redux here in 2020. Once again, our pro-development City Council members and city employees are willing to cough up our open space in the name of revenue. It is time for our City Council to do the will of the majority of the people who elected them and put an end to this project once and for all.

VIEWPOINT Honoring a childhood friend, veteran and national hero BY LOU PANIZZON

Growing up in Carpinteria in the 1940s and ‘50s, our recreation took us to the streets and alleys around my family home on 8th Street near the old Main School. We played kick the can, three flies up, hide and seek and all kinds of tag. We kept ourselves busy until dark and shortly thereafter. We gathered at Main School for more intense games like over the line, softball, baseball and every kind of football imaginable. We all had heroes, from local high school athletes to popular college and professional players, to movie stars. But most importantly, we admired local and national military individuals that we read about in the local papers or saw at the Saturday matinee movie newsreels. Little did we know that later in our lives one of our neighborhood playmates, Phil Schuyler, would go on to be one of those heroes that we admired so much as youngsters. On Nov. 11, we honor our veterans, including Schuyler. A report in the local Virginia Beach newspaper, Virginian-Pilot, stated: “Hit three times by anti-aircraft fire, Lt. Cmdr. Philip Schuyler’s A-6 Intruder whistled and bucked as it skimmed over the steamy Vietnamese coast. Schuyler eyed the twisted metal in his left wing, the holes in his canopy, the damage to the cockpit. He pushed on. Diving at 500 knots, he and Marine Capt. Lou Ferracane dropped thousand-pound bombs on a rail repair yard, then felt the Intruder take two more hits. Fire broke out under the right wing. “The Intruder flew on, bombing a second target, a missile site, and two minutes later took six more hits. One blew Ferracane’s bombardier/navigator console straight out the top of the canopy. Air swooshed from the cockpit. Dirt and dust and debris swirled around them and zipped through the hole. Half of the plane’s hydraulic system failed.

Little did we know that later in our lives one of our neighborhood playmates, Phil Schuyler, would go on to be one of those heroes that we admired so much as youngsters.

Schuyler wrestled with the jet’s controls. Two holes perforated the left wing. Three hits had punched in the armor plating under one engine. A hole the size of a large typewriter gaped over the crew’s heads. The right wing, chewed by at least four holes, was burning as if cut by a torch. Still, the Intruder flew on. `’It was like we had a bull’s-eye painted on it,’ said Schuyler, a Virginia Beach aviator who retired in 1990 after two decades flying the Intruder, but ‘she was flying just fine.’ “He and Ferracane headed back to their carrier, the Coral Sea, confident that they could reach the flattop. Their boss overruled them as they limped over water infested with sharks and sea snakes. ’Big ones,’ Schuyler recalled. So, the two men ejected at 430 knots, were plucked from the Tonkin Gulf 45 minutes later, and reached their ship in time for dinner. Ferracane suffered scratches. Schuyler, later awarded the Silver Star, was unhurt.” Schuyler served three tours in Vietnam and became one of the most highly decorated Naval Aviators of the Vietnam War. Along with the Silver Star, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (2), Purple Heart, Air Medal (30), Meritorious Service Medal and Naval Commendation Medal (5 with Combat V). He also earned the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with

Carpinterian Phil Schuyler served as a lieutenant commander in the Vietnam War. Palm and numerous unit and individual awards. He even received the Martin Baker tie—“Life membership of the Ejection Tie Club is confined solely to those who have emergency ejected from an aircraft using a Martin-Baker ejection seat, which has thereby saved their life.” Schuyler passed away in August of 2000, leaving behind his wife, Nellie Damron, his high school sweetheart. They both were 1957 graduates of Carpinteria High School. Schuyler also had three children, Kathleen, Guyvanna and Andrew, a sister, Betsy Rowland of Taft, and a brother Lowell of Carpinteria. Schuyler was the son of Dale and Virginia Schuyler and grew up on Walnut Avenue across the street from Main School. He was our neighborhood playmate—a

local hero—brave and courageous. “But the bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet not withstanding, go out to meet it.” —Thucydides

$357K left in CARES funding for CUSD BY EVELYN SPENCE So far, the Carpinteria Unified School District has spent $1,891,839 of a total of $2,249,152 in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding, with $357,131 left for use for the rest of the year. The largest amount of money went toward supplying devices and connectivity for distance learning, Assistant Superintendent Maureen Fitzgerald said during the Carpinteria Unified School District board’s Oct. 27 meeting. “Sometimes I’m like, how did we spend $1.8 million dollars? But believe me, it goes fast,” Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald added that the district has since hired two teachers, a full-time nurse and a custodian for its campuses. The district is currently looking into using some of the remaining money for a vehicle for food services to be able to deliver lunches for when students return to in-person learning in January, as the amount of staff available will be limited. “We’re monitoring (the CARES fund) pretty closely and we’re trying to utilize it in the best fashion that we can,” Fitzgerald said. Across the next three years, the district expects a revenue of $32,964,715 for the general fund, and expenditures of $31,857,228 for the 2020-2021 school year; $31,832,234 in revenue and $31,513,932 in expenditures for the 2021-2022 school year; and $33,396,172 in revenue and $31,946,937 in expenditures for the 20222023 school year, according to budgets presented during the meeting. Additionally, estimated property tax revenue in the area for 2020-2021 is estimated to be 5.84% higher than during the 2019-2020 school year. “That’s good news, everybody,” CUSD Superintendent Diana Rigby said. “This good news is reflected in part due to a single home sale earlier in 2020 of over $23 million dollars.” This increases the budget property tax revenue by $785,000 for 2021, according to Rigby.

Carpinteria Education Foundation is partnering with CUSD to provide economically disadvantaged students with internet connections, Rigby said, through Cox Communication’s “Connect2Compete” program. “We’re really grateful for the generous support,” Rigby said. The foundation is also donating $10,000 for personal recess equipment for every CUSD elementary school student; every student will have access to their own jump ropes, chalk, playground balls and bean bags.

CUSD enrollment

As of Oct. 27, current enrollment for the Carpinteria Unified School District stands at 2,084 students across its campuses, noted Rigby. Enrollment for the previous school year was 2,150. “Each year we’re declining about one percent [in enrollment],” Rigby said during the board’s Oct. 27 meeting. This has amounted to a 10% decrease over the past 10 years.

Keeping it local at Seastrand Apparel


MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N Growing up, supermom entrepreneur Taylor Bush never pictured herself as a business owner, but today she is the sole owner of Seastrand Apparel, Carpinteria’s beloved local boutique on Linden Avenue. “I was raised under the mindset that you work for someone and get a paycheck, so this is very outside my comfort zone,” said Taylor. “I was scared to start my own business; it was one of the most unplanned things I’ve ever done but I’m so glad I did. I love what I do.” Bush grew up with a love and admiration for fashion, but she always pictured it as more of a hobby than a career path. When she finished her master’s degree in school counseling during an economic downturn, and chose to live in Carpinteria where there weren’t many school counseling positions available, she started exploring other options. “I didn’t see myself being my own boss, but I love it. I love the challenge and I love learning more,” Taylor noted. Being her own boss means that Bush has to juggle her business along with being a fulltime mom. “I wasn’t ready to put Addie in daycare when she was a baby and my husband works also, so I brought Addie here (to the store) with me for her first year of life,” she commented. “She influenced the baby section of the store. It’s been great being my own boss as a mother. She’s my priority and the store has allowed me lots of flexibility.” Seastrand Apparel’s brand is a South-

The store carries lots of casual wear for hanging out with friends and going to dinner, but also features pieces to wear on special occasions too. “I want people to think of my store as a place where they can come and get something that works for them that’s unique, that doesn’t look like it’s from your everyday store and is well made,” said Taylor. “I want them to feel like they can come in here and feel special . . . and that we know them and that their needs

are important to us. We’ll help shoppers to look their best, so they feel their best.” Carpinteria’s close-knit community has shown Bush that it’s dedicated to supporting its local businesses. Over the years, Seastrand Apparel has experienced growth and weathered hard times, but it’s regular customers have stayed loyal. “For me, it’s really about the people. When I have someone that comes in here and leaves happy, that’s a good day for me,” she said. “I’ve had the honor and privilege of getting to see my customers through their life changes too and hear their stories. I’ve helped people find outfits for all kinds of life celebrations.” Bush keeps a binder with her client’s names, sizes and what they like. “That’s the fun part for me, when I get to really have one of those interactions with someone I’ve come to know,” said Bush. “I know they will leave happy when I know them and know what they like.” People shop at Seastrand because they like what she carries, and because they know Bush and her contribution to the community of business owners.

“I love how this town supports its local businesses. There is such an outpouring of people coming out, shopping local, eating at local restaurants. I love being a part of this community, there is so much kindness.” In the near future, Bush plans to expand the store’s sustainably made apparel and support more companies that pay their workers a living wage. Bush wants Seastrand to stock clothing made with low impact dyes, organic cotton, and that aren’t sent to their retailers in tons of plastic. “They do tend to cost a little more,” she noted, “but caring for our planet has been an interest for me as I’ve carried on with this line of work. I want to be part of the solution, not the problem.” Seastrand Apparel is located at 919 Linden Ave. Brenda Tan is a columnist and a freelance writer.

Carpinterians honor their dead PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

On Nov. 1, families gathered at the Carpinteria Cemetery to honor their late friends and family members in a Día de los Muertos ceremony hosted by Friends of the Carpinteria Library, La Centra Sumerlin Foundation and Carpinteria Cemetery. Participants celebrated the lives of those who have passed by decorating gravesites with marigolds, which is believed to help guide spirits to their alters.

St. Joseph Church’s Father Richard Martini reads from the Bible for families and their loved ones.

Wearing skeleton makeup on half of her face, Cindy Sierra represents the duality of life and death.

Olivia DeBruijn enjoys the fresh air as she weaves in and out of the marigolds.

Mariachi Real de Mexico plays traditional Mexican songs for families celebrating their loved ones.

Who gives a hoot? CVN

IN THE NATUREHOOD NANCY BARON It’s owl season. At dusk and dawn listen for the sounds of male and female Great Horned Owls duetting back and forth. Or if you hear a raspy shriek, look for a Barn Owl floating by on moth-like wings. This is the time of year owls are bonding with their mates and looking for nesting sites. Each evening, from our perch in the hills above Carpinteria, we hear both the hooting calls of the Great Horned Owls and the screeches of Barn Owls. Barn Owls are particularly noisy during courtship. He screeches and flies after the female and she screams back. He brings her gifts of rats and hovers in front of her with his feet dangling. Barn owls are medium sized owls, but their long wings make them appear larger. They have a heart shaped monkey face and cinnamon colored feathers, although in the darkness they appear white. Their buoyant moth-like flight is beautiful to watch. At dusk, ghostly Barn Owls drop from the beards of palms where they roost – and begin their night patrols for rats and gophers. Stealth is an owl’s weapon. Their flight feathers have combed edges that allow them to swoop silently upon their prey. No whooshing of wings! The Barn Owls fly past our deck like phantoms searching the orchard and meadow for rodents. They can hear their prey in total darkness, even hidden in vegetation. Owls do major work for farmers like my husband, who has a small organic avocado orchard. Instead of using rat poison we encourage owls and hawks to control rat populations. To attract them, we have built owl boxes and perches from which they can hunt. Last year, two Barn Owl chicks fledged, and the year before there were four. We know this because once the owlets get close to flying, they climb out of the box each night and sit on top, going Pshhht. Pshhht. Pshhht, which seems like the owlish equivalent of “Feed me, feed me, feed me,” cheering on their parents in the rat hunt. Barn Owls kill as many as three rats per night each, and a nesting pair can take an additional two rats for each owlet. Some estimate the average Barn Owl family eats 3,000 rodents during a breeding season. During courtship, the males offer their females more rats than they can eat to show their hunting prowess. In nesting season, before the eggs hatch, they will stockpile dozens of killed rats in anticipation of their hungry young. The dutiful male delivers the rats to the female, who feeds the young. He eats last. Ironically, the birds of prey like owls and hawks that help control rat populations are also prime victims of second-generation rat poisons—like d-CON, Hombre and Contrac. The first year we erected an owl nesting box, the four owlets died, due to being fed poisoned rats. Most of the farms around us are organic. But even one house that uses rat poison can kill off these helpful predators in the surrounding area.

Hungry Barn Owl chicks sit atop their nest box waiting for home delivery of rats. In our neighborhood, more and more people are aware of the dangers of rat poison to wildlife and pets and the advantages of encouraging raptors and other wildlife which naturally control rodent populations. Animal rescuers refer to rat poisons as ‘weapons of mass destruction’ because they not only kill rats but other wildlife and pets that consume the poisoned rats. The second-generation rodenticides contain blood thinners which kill up the food chain, causing predators and scavengers to bleed out. It’s a horrible death. Some encouraging news: Governor Gavin Newsome recently signed AB 1788, which bans the use of second-generation poisons, with a few exceptions. I spoke to Lisa Owens Viani who started Raptors are the Solution or RATS. Viani has been working on this issue for over a decade. Her website, raptorsarethesolution. org, is a trove of information including pest control companies that use methods that are wildlife friendly and helpful advice. “Rats hate cayenne pepper because they pick it up on their feet and then lick them,” she told me. “You can sprinkle cayenne on their pathways or nest sites. You can use it in compost bins, bird feeders and chicken coops; it will not harm or repel birds or chickens.” Some communities like Malibu and Marin are poison-free communities. Others are beginning to follow, as awareness increases of the dangers of poisons and the benefits of encouraging owls and other predators. Barn Owl pairs stay together throughout their lives. They are especially helpful to farmers and vineyards because they don’t mind other Barn Owl neighbors as long as they have enough nesting sites and rodents to eat. They need cavities which are hard to find—or barns—even harder. But they will readily use Barn Owl nesting boxes if they are correctly situated. Last weekend, we cleaned our boxes, getting rid of the many pellets of bones and fur, and replacing soiled wood shavings with new. I am looking forward to seeing a Barn Owl sitting on the box at night, staring back at me, knowing that a family is soon to follow. The Ojai Raptor Center sells owl boxes and also has free plans for how to build them. For more information, visit ojairaptorcenter.org.



Barn Owls capture rats, gophers and voles to feed their families. Farmers encourage their presence with owl boxes and perches.


This Great Horned Owl chick was fed a poisoned rat. Second generation rodenticides cause animals’ blood to thin and seep out of its body, killing them.

The modernization of Carpinteria in 1912 BY JIM CAMPOS

Carpinteria’s growth as a sleepy agrarian village took a dramatic turn before the beginning of the 20th century with the establishment of asphalt mining operations. The men who arrived to work the mines increased the population by several hundred people. Modernization, such as it was, was sparked, and Carpinteria never looked back. By 1912, Carpinteria would have a new character and outlook. It had its first weekly newspaper, the Carpinteria Valley News, started in 1911, in the months just prior to 1912. And just after the new year, a mass meeting was held on Jan. 25 for the purpose of improving the Valley. Judge Jerome F. Tubbs was elected president, and Henry B. Fish, secretary, in what was Carpinteria’s first Chamber of Commerce. Although incorporation into a city would take another 50 years to achieve, the roots were planted. The subject was on the minds of many Carpinterians. Summerland wanted in, but was not admitted into the club, although over time it was included in the fire and school districts. Let’s review some of the new shiny toys

Carpinteria had to play with in 1912. Automobiles were taking the world by storm. A causeway – a wooden road, or bridge – connecting Ventura to Carpinteria was completed. This causeway in 1912 was actually the third and final leg of a three-stage project of causeways. Motorists no longer had to depend on the ocean tides to allow passage along the Rincon Beach stretch. Prior to the causeway, travelers preferred taking the Casitas Pass mountain road to visit or pass through Carpinteria. The causeway was a bumpy ride, often causing flat tires as its nails loosened out, but it did its job. A tourist economy utilizing one of Carpinteria’s greatest assets, its “World’s Safest Beach” declaration, was opened to Southern California. Salty ocean breezes were not just great for drawing tourists, but also for growing lemons, and Carpinteria’s climate that rarely reached freezing temperatures was ideal. C. D. Hubbard, a citrus grower from the San Fernando Valley, married into a Carpinteria family, the Cartons, and brought his expertise to town. He leased the P. C. Higgins packing house at the corner of Palm Avenue and 8th Street, upgraded it, and branded his enterprise the C. D. Hubbard Fruit Company, established 1912.


A lemon display for the 1917 National Orange Show in San Bernardino from the C. D. Hubbard Fruit Company established in 1912.



The Palms Hotel was established in 1912 on the 700 block of Linden Avenue across the street from the Hickey Bros. business block. This photo is dated 1913. The lemon industry in Carpinteria would be king for decades, and spawn a second packing house, the Carpinteria Mutual Citrus Association in 1926. Mexican, Japanese, Filipino and Dust Bowl Whites would form the primary labor pool and add to Carpinteria’s population. Carpinteria Union Elementary School, a grand-looking building was built in 1912 on the corner of the Coast Highway (Carpinteria Avenue) and Palm Avenue. It added secondary education in 1914 so that students could graduate from Carpinteria High instead of travelling to Santa Barbara. Carpinteria Union would eventually make all of the other Carpinteria school districts—Rincon, Ocean View, and the Carpinteria (Santa Monica) School—obsolete. Only Aliso School survived, but as a school for the Mexican children. Over on Linden Avenue at the 700 block, a business district was forming in 1912. The Palm’s Hotel was erected by H. J. Laughlin on the west side. Laughlin had built the White Sulfur Hotel on the same spot only to see it burn to the ground after a scant seven years in 1894.

Foul play was suspected. He built the Palm’s to last this time, out of concrete, blocks and clay bricks. It still stands to this day as a restaurant, a Carpinteria institution. Across the street, the Hickey Brothers Land Company created a strip mall of stores. The Hickey Bros. block, as it became known, has seen many different shops and businesses over the years. The original owners of the company finally sold the block to another owner only in the last year. In 1912, Carpinteria began to resemble what in 2020 we Carpinterians consider a self-contained community that meets just about all of our needs. If you have a story or photo that tells a unique part of Carpinteria’s history, please contact Jim at drsjcampos@gmail.com.

The Carpinteria Union School was on the corner of the Coast Highway (Carpinteria Avenue) and Palm Avenue. Opened in 1912 as a K-8 elementary school, the second floor was used in 1914 for establishing a program of secondary education. This photo is dated 1918.

The causeway connecting Ventura to Carpinteria along the Coast Highway on the Rincon was completed in 1912. It resembled a giant pier.

The Weekly Crossword

the more relevant today. Zinn served as World War II bombardier and years later came to question the consequences of his actions, particularly the civilian casualties that resulted from them. He started to look beyond the categories of “good guys” and “bad guys,” instead exploring a war machine that had priorities beyond just winning and how to avoid the tremendous human costs of war. A professor who brought his personal experience into the classroom, the heart of Zinn’s view of history is a respect for human life and dignity.  Unjustly fired for standing up for his students at Spelman College, he marched for civil rights and spoke out against the atrocities of war. Despite witnessing so many struggles, setbacks and injustices firsthand, Zinn’s work resounds with hope and the fundamental belief in the power of everyday people to breathe life into democratic institutions and move them in a direction that serves the people.   —Giti White, volunteer, Friends of the Carpinteria Library

Diversify Our Narrative recommends “Kodi” By Jared Cullum

Katya is a young girl spending her summer in Alaska with her Meema. She spends most of her days alone reading comics, but one day Meema sends her out to play and she comes across an enormous bear, Kodi. They quickly become close friends, but Katya must return to her home in Seattle and both are crestfallen. How will their friendship survive being miles apart? Kodi decides to travel to Seattle and reunite with his best friend. He must learn how to navigate the city, keep away from trouble, and figure out a way to reach Katya. “Kodi” is a beautiful, heartwarming read with Pixar-worthy watercolor illustrations to match. It’s a quick story with not a lot of text, making it suitable for both young children and adults. While it’s probably intended for ages 7-10, I imagine everyone with a furry friend would appreciate the friendship between Katya and Kodi. Recommended for those seeking something wholesome and suitable for all ages. “Kodi” is available on Hoopla with your library card. —Blanca Ramirez, Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave.

“Front Desk” By Kelly Yang

“Front Desk” by Kelly Yang is a middle school grade novel about a Chinese family moving from China to the U.S. based on Kelly Yang’s personal life. The main character Mia, and her parents immigrated from mainland China to the U.S. in search of the American dream. Mia and her parents snag a job as managers at a motel in Anaheim, California. However, America is not the “land of opportunity” they thought it was and throughout the book the family deals with discrimination in many forms as they try and assimilate into their new country. Despite being a middle grade novel, this book succeeded in tackling themes of ostracization, racism, immigration, language barriers, income inequality and more in a way that is easy for the target audience to understand, but is nuanced enough to start a new conversation. One of the strongest aspects of this book is Mia’s optimism and sense of justice that prevails throughout the plot, as she learns to use her voice for herself and her friends. While this book is heavily focused on the Chinese immigrant experience, Yang also successfully dives into the experiences of being non-white in America, and points out differences in experiences and parallels with different characters in “Front Desk.” —Jillian Stineman, member, Diversify Our Narrative Carpinteria

Halloween brings lowkey festivities PHOTOS BY ROBIN KARLSSON

As October came to a close, the Halloween spirit rolled into town with two festive events. On Oct. 28, brewLAB hosted a pumpkin carving contest to see who could make this year’s Great Pumpkin. On Halloween afternoon, C-dog held an unofficial ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the off-leash dog area at El Carro Park. Carpinteria Mayor Wade Nomura also made a virtual announcement of the winners of the Howl-o-ween doggie costume contest which was determined via a public vote on Instagram.

From left, brewLAB pumpkin carving winners are Carie Smith, Vanessa and Julio Monterroso, and Ryan Fly. Jessica and Juliana Sneed, left, and Isabella Stovall, right, carve their pumpkin in hopes of winning the kid’s division.

ABOVE, from left, Elle de la Mont is with her dog Toru, Mayor Wade Nomura—as Nomura announces the winners of the Howl-o-ween doggie costume contest—Stella (the bee) and C-Dog member Evelyn Calkins show their support.
