A group of spring breakers held a bonfire at Carpinteria City Beach late Tuesday night, leaving behind a couch, bottles, broken glass and other miscellaneous trash. Pedro Castro, a longtime employee of the city for 27 years, was left to clean up the aftermath early Wednesday morning after finding Third Beach littered with trash. Parks and Recreation director Matt Roberts reminded the community that fires on the beach are illegal, saying, “Fires are filthy and dangerous. These folks obviously had no concern about selfishly leaving litter and the beach a mess.”

BRIEFLY FEMA to provide Covid-19 funeral assistance

In early April, FEMA will begin providing financial assistance for funeral expenses incurred after Jan. 20, 2020 for deaths related to Covid-19 to help ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the pandemic. The policy was finalized last week, and FEMA is now moving rapidly to implement this funeral assistance program nationwide. Assistance is limited to a maximum financial amount of $9,000 per funeral. Applicants may apply for multiple deceased individuals, but assistance will be limited to a maximum of $35,500 per application. In the coming weeks, a dedicated 800 number will be established to help individuals who apply. In the meantime, potential applicants are encouraged to start gathering documentation, including an official death certificate that attributes the death to Covid-19, funeral expense documents (receipts, funeral home contract, etc.), and proof of funds received from other sources specifically for use toward funeral costs. More information regarding this assistance can be found at fema.gov.

County opens vaccines to age 50 and over

Santa Barbara County residents age 50 years and older can now make an appointment to receive the Covid-19 vaccine at Public Health Community Vaccination Clinics in Lompoc, scheduled for March 28 through April 3. Effective April 1, residents age 50+ will also be eligible to schedule appointments at any of the participating pharmacies, hospitals or health care providers as supply is available. “We are very excited to expand eligibility to more community members, beginning with the County Public Health Community Vaccination Clinics,” said Van Do-Reynoso, County Public Health Director. “Locally we have seen a promising increase in our vaccine supply and Public Health is ready to welcome community members newly eligible for vaccination.” Groups currently eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine at Public Health Community Vaccination Clinics include: people over the age of 50; Phase 1A health care workers; education and childcare workers; emergency service workers; food and agriculture workers; and people between age 16-64 with high risk medical conditions. All eligible community members can sign up for a vaccine appointment by registering online at countyofsb.org/phd or by calling 2-1-1 (option 4) or by dialing (800) 400-1572. The call center is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A luxury RV park proposed for the Carpinteria Bluffs was met with concern at the city’s joint council meeting on March 29.

Joint council meeting sees concerns about “visual impact” of proposed luxury AutoCamp BY EVELYN SPENCE At a special joint meeting on Monday night of Carpinteria’s City Council, Planning Commission and Architectural Review Board, several concerns were voiced from community and board members about the proposed luxury AutoCamp RV park – planned for 6555 Carpinteria Ave. – regarding the RV park’s impact on the surrounding community, the reflectivity of the trailers and severe concerns about the amount of proposed parking available. The March 29 meeting was set to conceptually review the proposed Airstream lodging development on a 2.48-acre property on the Carpinteria Bluffs at the easternmost end of Carpinteria Avenue. The site is a privately-owned property that is currently vacant. The proposal comes from John King of King Ventures and the Rincon Bluffs Group, LLC and AutoCamp. AutoCamp has similar luxury RV parks currently operating in California at Yosemite, Russian River and Joshua Tree. The proposed development currently plans for 24 Airstream trailer units, two larger ADA compliant trailers, a 2,200-square-foot clubhouse, a 550-square-foot maintenance building and a parking lot with 28 spaces, according to conceptual review documents submitted for the meeting. The clubhouse itself would house a snack bar, gift shop and “gathering space” for guests. New gutters, curb and a sidewalk would also be put into place along Carpinteria Avenue to connect to the Rincon Bluffs Preserve. According to the proposal, the majority of new plants planted on the property will be native species.  Each of the luxury trailers are designed to sleep four and contain a queen bed and a fold-out sofa bed.  According to a presentation during

“The only thing we gain from this, I believe, is traffic, noise, glare and disruption of a pristine area.”

– Jane Benefield, vice chair of the Planning Commission the meeting, city staff identified potential problems with the proposal, including how the development will affect public views, as well as problems with the trailers themselves. For example, the “extensive use of metallic surfaces” is prohibited in the Bluffs Community Design Element Implementation Policy #74, as discussed during the meeting. The development must also have just enough landscaping to fit in with the bluffs – ”not too much” landscaping.  Per the presentation, the proposal will need modifications to be accepted under city guidelines. 

“I can see some definitely positive things about this proposal,” John Callender of the Planning Commission said during the meeting. “I like it being smaller scale and smaller in terms of its impact than built-out structures or a built-out resort would be. I do think that, as some others have said, that having it be an element that highlights the natural characteristics of the site ... could be consistent with the vision of Carpinteria that a lot of Carpinterians share.” “With that said, there are a number of things about the project that I have pretty deep concerns about. I think that if it does go forward, those would have

to be addressed in a meaningful way,” he continued. Similarly, Jane Benefield, Planning Commission vice chair, stressed that the project must be suitable for Carpinteria residents. “The only thing we gain from this, I believe, is traffic, noise, glare and disruption of a pristine area,” Benefield said. Laurel Fisher Perez, from Suzanne Elledge Planning & Permitting Services, and Bernie Corea, AutoCamp’s senior land acquisition manager, spoke during the meeting about the proposed development. The two fielded questions from the council, the planning commission and the architectural review board about how the development would affect the community. “The proposed AutoCamp Carpinteria project is especially exciting for us, as the AutoCamp concept was founded in Santa Barbara back in 2013. We found that vacationers enjoy the ability to have a fully curated camping experience without the associated hassles of purchasing and setting up their equipment,” Corea said. (AutoCamp Santa Barbara, which was located on De La Vina Street, is now permanently closed according to Google Business and Yelp.) So far, AutoCamp has met and discussed the project with the Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs, the Carpinteria Valley Association and the Carpinteria New Business Advisory Committee, among others, Fisher Perez said. “We’ll continue our outreach and meetings to collect important information and input,” Fisher Perez said.  “It helps address a growing demand for camping and outdoor recreation. We’ve all been through a year that couldn’t have been described ... our tremendous respect and

The pandemic has reduced the number of volunteers at the overlook. Sealwatch reminds visitors to protect others by wearing a mask, staying distanced and limiting time at the viewing area when it is crowded. This report covers March 22 - 28.

Sealwatch is a great way to see wildlife. The sanctuary provides a safe refuge for many animals in addition to the seals. Last week saw the arrival of hundreds of pelicans, and birdwatchers find it a great vantage point for many species. Elephant seals, sea lions and dolphins visited last week as well. Whales were not noted last week but seasonally are often seen even inside the pier.

In fact, most of the overlook area is Chevron property and the intervening parcel before the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve is also private. It’s best to respect the properties and realize they are not maintained for public use.

Info

The Carpinteria harbor seal rookery is located immediately east of Casitas Pier, between the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve and Carpinteria State Beach. Please remember not to bring dogs, bicycles or loud voices to view the seals. Harbor seals, when disturbed, may flee and become separated from their pups. Volunteers ask that dogs remain outside the rope area at all times. Volunteers needed. Call (805) 684-2247 or email carpsealwatch@gmail.com. To find out more, visit carpinteriasealwatch.org.

“Commercial cannabis production is a relatively young industry and a ‘growing’ source of new jobs. Let’s give them a chance to come up with some more effective systems for reducing odors.”   Cannabis odor isn’t a pressing issue

I can understand the concerns of those troubled by odors infiltrating their lives and homes. I once lived down the road from a pig farm in central Illinois. We must be from different generations. That skunky cannabis smell that some find objectionable was once highly praised and valued, especially by patients for medical use.  I do not know of many people who have suffered long term health effects from smelling secondhand smells. Commercial cannabis production is a relatively young industry and a “growing” source of new jobs. Let’s give them a chance to come up with some more effective systems for reducing odors. Ozone generators and air scrubbers have long been used in hospital operating rooms to reduce contaminates. They must be safe. Our schools will need to find clean air systems before our kids can safely return to school. Why not enlist the help of your friendly local growers? They are the ones with the practical knowledge.

Not safe “Safe Parking”

I may be taking an unpopular stand, but I am opposed to a “Safe Parking Program” in Carpinteria. I understand the need for such a program, but Carpinteria is a coastal town where space is at a premium. While I sympathize with homeless families, many people who are homeless are not families, they are drug users and unstable. In addition, Carpinteria would have to pay for someone to monitor it and an increase in police presence. My property tax is my single highest yearly expense. I want that money to go for parks and schools. Will it really be maintained and monitored? Who will clean it? What about a place like King City? Off the coast, and lots of parking. Yes, I am saying NIMBY, but others must be thinking it too.

desire for outdoor experiences has only become more important to us.” Corea said the most concerning feedback they received from the community involved the reflectivity of the trailers.   “Modern Airstreams are made out of a raw brushed aluminum that has a clear coat on top of it. It’s very different from the chrome looking vehicles of the ‘50s,” Corea said. “They’re really not much more reflective than what a light-colored vehicle like a car would be, but what the brushed finish does is that it helps reflect the adjacent colors of the landscaping, not the bright silver of these previous chrome-finished versions.”  He explained that the per-night cost of trailers will start at the low-to-mid $200s, and will adjust with demand. The development will have 10 to 15 fulltime employees, with approximately five employees on the property per shift. Council members expressed concern about the limited parking proposed in the development. Corea said each site would be given one parking spot. Corea said the development is also exploring additional parking spaces.  Several Carpinterians called in or wrote into the record to protest the proposed development.  Resident Jim Taylor called developing the spot “tragic.”  

“What town in its right mind would allow a trailer park in literally the most prominent location on their (coastline), overlooking the magnificent Rincon Bluffs preserve?” he said. Mike Wondolowski, president of the Carpinteria Valley Association, said there are “multiple unacceptable aspects of this proposal,” noting “a trailer park is entirely inappropriate for this location.”  “I ask each of you to consider this question: If cabins were proposed here with earth tone or natural wood exterior, would you recommend they change the material to be shiny metal? If not, then this proposal is fundamentally inappropriate. Looking at this proposal, it can’t honestly be described as anything other than a high-density trailer park,” Wondolowski said. Joyce Donaldson from the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce said the chamber reviewed the project at its recent meeting, and found the concept “consistent with the chamber’s policy platform.”  “We are advocates for preservation of open space. Of the many projects that have been proposed for this site over the years, this project appears to create the least amount of impact. Given these considerations, we believe AutoCamp is the best possible use of the space,” Donaldson said.

A really big project CVN

THE LAY OF THE LAND MIKE WONDOLOWSKI Last August, Elizabeth Fonte was walking down Linden Avenue, and as she passed Siam Elephant restaurant, the vague concept she had been mulling over for some time became a crystal-clear vision. Ellie grew up in Carpinteria and after college moved away to make her fortune. Now retired, she has returned to her old stomping grounds with a desire to do something big for the town she loves. She knows Carpinteria is a unique place with a big heart. So, she knew her vision was the perfect fit: fully funding and opening an environmentally-friendly sanctuary for rescued elephants to be centered at Linden Field (tinyurl.com/ carp-elephants). Ellie’s preliminary pachyderm plan was developed by some of the world’s leading experts in elephant rescue and rehabilitation facilities. Although elephants should live in the wild, that is not always possible. Many rescued from subpar facilities are not able to be returned to the wild. Carpinteria’s small beach town character makes it an ideal home for these elephants. Additionally, their necessary behavioral enrichment can be tailored to benefit the local community. The plan includes multiple ways the elephants can assist the City Parks and Public Works Departments and reduce the use of expensive, noisy, and polluting heavy machinery for certain park maintenance and road work. For example, City Parks director Matt Roberts stated, “The elephants will be perfect for the seasonal effort to build and remove the winter berm on the beach. And if the timing works out, they could be a huge help with building the planned Rincon Multi-Use Trail.” (See: tinyurl.com/berm-helpers.) The elephants that are especially good at interacting with people will have special summer activities including the daily moving of the city’s rental kayaks from the boat house to the beach and back, as well as assisting novice kayakers launch and land their kayaks – a sight sure to be popular among tourists and locals alike! Other organizations also hope to develop partnerships that allow the elephants to bring their special skills to other parts of the community. Plans are being developed by Trail Stewards of Franklin Trail for how to use elephants in trail maintenance activities. Friends of Franklin Trail is investigating how the elephants could be used to help mobility-limited individuals experience the trail in ways they cannot now. A particularly unique concept comes from Channel Islands Restoration who hopes to train elephants to perform habitat restoration work. Elephants eat roots, grasses, fruit, and bark and are normally not terribly picky about their menu. But CIR believes they can train elephants to focus their appetite on non-native invasive plant species, something that would be exceptionally useful for restoration work throughout the region since one elephant can consume up to 300 pounds of food in a single day. The manure will be used at the Carpinteria Garden Park community garden and

The elephants that are especially good at interacting with people will have special summer activities including the daily moving of the city’s rental kayaks from the boat house to the beach and back, as well as assisting novice kayakers launch and land their kayaks – a sight sure to be popular among tourists and locals alike!

be available to all community members. (Remember, one elephant can consume up to 300 pounds of food in a single day!) The plan includes appropriate landscaping enhancements to part of Linden Field where the barns will be located – a location conveniently close to both Tomol Interpretive Play Area and Siam Elephant restaurant, allowing visitors at both locations to enjoy the elephants next door. At a recent Conceptual Review by the city, after listening attentively to the report on the proposal, Mayor Wade Nomura blurted out, “O.M.G. I love elephants!” (See video here: tinyurl. com/mayor-omg.) Members of the Architectural Review Board suggested improvements to the proposed barns including using locally-grown bamboo and changing to a thatch roof design using local palm fronds. In response to concerns about elephants being a non-native species, it was pointed out that elephants are the closest living relatives of the Columbian mammoth that lived here during the Pleistocene Epoch. So, this is actually more of a restoration project. Once the facility is established, researchers from UCSB and the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History hope to work with the elephants to test the theory that mammoths swimming to the Channel Islands were the ancestors of the pygmy mammoths there. You can view the expected schedule for Ellie Fonte’s project here: tinyurl.com/ elephant-sched. The Draft EIR for the project is expected to be available April 1 of next year. Mike Wondolowski is president of the Carpinteria Valley Association (CarpinteriaValleyAssociation.org), a local organization dedicated to maintaining the small beach town nature of our community. In his 30 years of involvement in planning issues, he has witnessed visionary successes, as well as decisions that were later widely regretted. When not stuck indoors, he can often be found enjoying Carpinteria’s treasures including kayaking and snorkeling along the coast, running or hiking on the bluffs or the Franklin Trail, or “vacationing” as a tent camper at the State Beach.

Obituary

Barbara Elizabeth Jaques Winneguth McCurry 1/12/1916 – 3/19/2021 Barbara Winneguth McCurry was born on Jan. 12, 1916 to Else Krebs and James Edgar Jaques in Germantown, a small section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, around the corner from Betsy Ross’ home. With older sister Eleanor, the family moved to Rye, New York, for two years then to Oakland, California, where Barbara had fond memories of her elementary school and seeing Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig at a baseball game with her dad. In 1928, the family moved to North Hollywood, California, where she attended North Hollywood High School, participating in the French club and a musical production of The Mikado with future actor Alan Ladd. Barbara enrolled in Woodbury Business College in Hollywood to prepare for a secretarial job at Republic Studio in Burbank where she earned her first paycheck of $10 and met her future husband, Gilbert Carl Winneguth. Married in 1939, Barbara and Gil built a cozy home in Van Nuys where they lived happily for 40 years and were blessed with four children. Barbara was an active young mother helping with Boy Scouts, teaching Sunday School at Van Nuys Presbyterian Church, singing in two choirs and volunteering for community causes. The family enjoyed picnics, trailer camping in Carpinteria, road trips to National Parks and the 1960 Seattle World’s Fair. In 1981, Barbara and Gil designed and built their dream home in Carpinteria with a magnificent acre of avocado and fruit trees, a veggie garden and a blissful ocean view. Inspired by the sea breezes, they named their home “Brisa,” but Gil was only able to enjoy it for six months due to a losing battle with lung cancer. In 1983, Barbara married Ernest Alton McCurry, a fellow choir member at Carpinteria Community Church. They were active in many local organizations: Meals on Wheels, Girl’s Inc., the Masonic Lodge and Gold Nuggets for special needs young adults. Barbara and Ernie

traveled extensively and sang together often. They enjoyed golfing at Montecito Country Club, gardening, spoiling their pets and hosting family and friends at their home until Ernie developed Alzheimer’s and died in 2005. Almost every weekend since 1984, Barbara served “Open House Waffles” on Saturday mornings for family, friends and neighbors. She was affectionately known around Carpinteria as “the Waffle Lady,” as countless folks enjoyed her warm hospitality and stories over a warm meal. Barbara was a member of the Treble Clef Chorus in Santa Barbara and loved singing soprano with them for 35 years! She also loved watching Dodger games and the Hallmark channel on TV, and every year she canned summer fruit from her garden. Her interest in politics, world affairs and justice for all, prompted many handwritten letters to government officials. Barbara overflowed with wonderful qualities: her kind and generous heart, her open mind and her unconditional love for all. She lived her deep faith, and her energy was legendary. She offered sound advice and unfailing support to any who needed it. An amazing gift came to her in her 90s, the birth of four great granddaughters. She delighted in them. She was so grateful for her longevity, good health and independence, and for frequent visits from family, friends and neighbors. She renewed her driver’s license for the last time at 99 years old and planted her final veggie garden at 104, yielding the biggest, best tomatoes ever. She showed us how to age courageously and was a harmonizing chord in the symphony of life. Barbara was preceded in death by her son, David Winneguth of Carpinteria. She is survived by daughter Nancy (Steve) Kersnowski of Ventura; grandson Kasey (Christina Speed) Kersnowski of Santa Barbara; son Mike (Elise) Winneguth of Carpinteria; grandson Will (Caroline) Winneguth in Germany; great-granddaughters Quinlyn and Amelia Winneguth; daughter Jill (Tom) Rowe of Van Nuys; grandson Justin (Amy Blakemore) Rowe of Carpinteria; great-granddaughters Penny and Lulah Rowe; granddaughter Ashley (José) Palafox of Oakland; step-daughter Diane Beamer of Santa Barbara and family; the family of her late step-son Barie McCurry; step-daughter Jenifer McCurry; and many nieces and nephews. Barbara’s family would like to thank Assisted Hospice of Santa Barbara, especially Judy Darrin RN, and Barbara’s faithful, dedicated caregivers from Angels of Grace, especially Lyn and Michelle. A private family burial was held at Carpinteria Cemetery. If they wish, friends may remember Barbara with a donation to the Carpinteria Community Church or New Directions of Santa Barbara, a nonprofit group for special needs adults.

School Board votes to return all students on April 5 CVN

SUPERINTENDENT’S DESK DIANA RIGBY CUSD SUPERINTENDENT

On Tuesday, March 30, the Carointeria Unified School District Board of Trustees voted to return all students in-person five days per week for elementary schools and four days per week for Carpinteria High School and Carpinteria Middle School beginning Monday, April 5. On March 20, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) updated the guidance for K-12 schools, stating that “maintaining a minimum of 3 feet distancing between student chairs is strongly recommended. Distance teacher and other staff desks at least 6 feet away from student and other staff desks.” This guidance “supersedes previous CDPH Covid-19 and Cal/ OSHA school guidance” and is based on the latest evidence and data about Covid-19 transmission and the effectiveness of disease control and mitigation strategies.  Based on these new CDPH guidelines, the district will implement the minimum of 3 feet of distance between student chairs and return all elementary students five days per week and all CMS and CHS students four days per week starting on Monday, April 5. The elementary students will remain in their stable groups per classroom, meeting on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. All CMS/CHS students will return for in-person instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and will remain in remote learning for the early release day on Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The current hybrid schedule with block scheduling will continue with Periods 1, 2 and 3 on Mondays and Thursdays, and Periods 4, 5 and 6 on Tuesday and Friday to maintain the required stable groups. Independent Study continues to be available for TK-8 students, and Cohort C for CHS students who are unable to return in-person. Bus transportation will only be provided for special education students. The current safety and mitigation measures have been successful in limiting in-school transmissions and they will continue to be implemented. Students and staff will need to conduct health screenings each morning before going to school including a temperature check, and are advised to stay at home if they have Covid symptoms. Staff will be tested every two months for Covid. Before entering the school, staff and students will have their temperature taken. Masks must be worn at all times except when eating and drinking. Adults must maintain 6 feet of social distancing between students and other adults. Hand-washing and sanitizing will be encouraged throughout the day. Materials and equipment will not be shared. Additional custodians have been hired to ensure that classrooms, bathrooms, hallways and frequently touched surfaces are cleaned. Each school has a plan for when a student or staff member becomes sick. CUSD school nurses and office staff are monitoring absences and positive Covid cases. CUSD follows the CDPH and County Public Health Guidelines if there is a confirmed or suspected case of Covid-19 in school. We appreciate your patience and flexibility with these changes in student schedules and we are looking forward to welcoming all students in-person on our campuses on Monday, April 5. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school principal. Diana Rigby is the current superintendent of Carpinteria Unified School District. She is focused on improving teaching and learning for all CUSD students and welcomes parent and community input and feedback. For more information about CUSD, log on to cusd.net, or contact Diana at drigby@ cusd.net or (805) 684-4511x222.

Author Jeff Arch announces debut novel

Author Jeff Arch, a Carpinteria local and the Oscar-nominated screenwriter behind “Sleepless in Seattle,” is releasing his debut novel “Attachments” on May 11, published by SparkPress. On May 11 at 5 p.m., Arch will hold a virtual event at Chaucer’s Books in Santa Barbara to kick off the book launch. At the virtual event, Arch will talk with New York Times bestselling author Christina Baker Kline about the inspiration behind their latest novels. The authors will also answer reader questions and celebrate Arch’s literary debut. A dual timeline narrative set during the 1990s with flashbacks to 1972, “Attachments” follows Stewart “Goody” Goodman and Sandy “Pick” Piccolo, who as adults receive a deathbed request from the dean at the Pennsylvania boarding school they attended decades earlier where they fell for the same girl, Laura. As they both make their way back to the campus of their youth, secrets and betrayals from the past come into the light that could have dire consequences for the dean’s young son.

Do birds make people as happy as money? CVN

IN THE NATUREHOOD NANCY BARON This month marks my one-year anniversary of writing “In the Naturehood.” Being home and paying attention to what is going on in the natural world around me has been the silver lining of this year of pandemic life. For two decades now, I’ve devoted my career to helping scientists tackling environmental challenges, often on a global scale. Typically, I travel widely to lead communication workshops for researchers working on wicked problems such as climate change, habitat degradation, drought and fire. For the last year, I have been grounded. Now I lead virtual workshops instead. And in some ways, I am happier for it. Here in the hills above Carpinteria, our small organic orchard is a refuge. A little less than two acres, it is devoted to avocado and citrus farming and also to supporting nature. We do our best to offer the three essentials: water, food and shelter. It’s my job to fill the feeders and keep the fountain and bird baths clean. My husband plants native flowers amid fruit trees to attract pollinators and birds. Coyotes, opossums, bobcats, barn owls and hawks, frogs and many birds call our place home. Others return each spring to breed, or to rest and drink and bathe. Each morning I step outside to listen to the bird songs telling me who is around. Birds and wildlife make us happy. We are not unique. A new study in the Journal of Ecological Economics reports that birds make people as happy as money. To read the study, visit doi. org/10.1016/j.ecolecon.2020.106917. The study, which analyzed the views of 26,000 people across 26 European countries, found that diversity in nature, particularly of birds, had the greatest influence on people’s moods. Its conclusion: “The happiest Europeans are those who can experience numerous different bird species in their daily life. Or who live in surroundings that are home to many species.” Bird songs especially make people happy, alleviate stress and even improve their focus. This spring, I have been paying closer attention than ever to birds. I watched two male Hooded Orioles tumble from a Queen Anne Palm in a boxing match for a prized territory. Circling overhead, male Red Shouldered Hawks were in a screaming match for the female who was coolly observing from the tall Redwood on my neighbor Cliff’s property. Above all, I have been awaiting the return of the Cliff Swallows, long distance migrants that winter in Argentina. I keep records on ebird.org and mark the calendar. Hundreds of swallows left last August after a busy six months raising their families here in 57 mud nests tucked under the eaves of our garage. I have been imagining their return trip flying 6,000 miles, trying to find enough insects for fuel. I think about how little water there is – how the wildfires have devastated habitat. I worry about pesticides that kill bugs which the birds would gladly eat. And when the freeze hit Mexico and Texas, I wondered where “our” swallows were on their return voy-

I love that they share observations on birds. They are paying more attention too. My neighbors, Valerie and Bill, are retired lawyers from L.A. Urban cats, they are erudite and savvy and increasingly they are advocates for the animals that share our neighborhood. They too have a colony of cliff swallows. This winter they had their house painted outside, a major production. Without prompting, Valerie told me, “I made sure none of the swallow nests were affected.” I’ve been more than a little surprised with Val’s tolerance for the bird poop from the swallows nesting above her kitchen window. She delights in watching them swirling into their nests in the eaves above her kitchen sink; their funny twitter squeak songs. “They sound like creaking doors,” she grins. On March 8, Val started texting me, “Hey Nancy, I have the idea that our swallows begin returning tomorrow. Is this confabulation or is that arguably correct? Can’t wait to see the swallows again.” Instinctively she remembered. For the past decade, “our” colonies of cliff swallows have returned around March 10 to their little villages of mud nests under our eaves. But not this year. We waited. March 13: Val: “I have seen no sign of swallows. You?” March 18: Val: “Still no swallows. BTW did you know there is now window glass that contains ultraviolet webbing patterns invisible to humans but visible to birds, so

I am gonna take a glass of wine outside and gloat over them in the sunset.” But the swallows returned to her place – and not ours. We waited. Eight days later, on March 28, just after sunset, a swirling mass of cliff swallows materialized from nowhere. Tiny specks at first barely visible, these feathered sparks of life mustered then consolidated to form a fast-flying tornado. Screaming overhead like tiny fighter planes, they

circled the garage in tightening circles, playing crack the whip. We held our breath until they started breaking off and pouring into the nests. Once all are in, they make sweet chittering songs back and forth as if doing roll call. Then they fell silent and asleep. The swallows are home. And to me, that’s worth a lot.

Love through the lens PHOTOS BY SHELLI KENLEIN

Not a day that passes in which I don’t feel fortunate to live in a beautiful city such as Carpinteria. When I’m hiking a trail, walking the beach or just out and about exploring, I always have my camera in hand so I can capture these special moments in time. When I’m behind the camera, I feel as if I’m sharing a symbiotic connection with my surroundings. There is a surge of energy that moves through my body when I feel I’ve captured a unique moment or perspective. Photography brings me joy and it allows me to express the love I have for this beautiful town and it’s people.

It was a beautifully breezy, sunny weekend in the city by the sea. Beach town charm swirled through neighborhoods, bringing families out for walks and bike rides. Flower, fruit and veggie blooms overflowed in the Carpinteria Garden Park, where families pruned, picked and tended to their plots. With bursts of color from neighborhood gardens and wildflowers at every turn, it was hard not to feel a sense of springtime joy.

The haze that tames the shadows CVN

UNPREDICTABLE WILDERNESS CHUCK GRAHAM Tule fog shrouded the grassland floor like a dewy blanket, a dense, moist haze that stretched for 25 miles or more. From the west, I studied its density hovering above a herd of at least 200 tule elk. Yet the wispy overcast weather hovered well below the upper reaches of the Temblor Range on the east side of the Carrizo Plain National Monument. Located on the east side of the Carrizo Plain, the desolate Temblors rise above the Panorama Hills and San Andreas Fault, running parallel with each of these natural wonders. Temblor is a Spanish word for tremor or earthquake, which California is obviously well known for, especially along the great scar that is the San Andreas Fault. Jutting in a northwest-southeasterly direction, the Temblors average roughly 3,500 feet above sea level, and its highest summit is McKittrick Peak at 4,381 feet, located in the center of the range. The tule fog (pronounced too-lee) that typically hovers above the Carrizo Plain might reach 2,500 feet in elevation and appears after significant storms. The phenomenon is named after the tule grass wetlands of California’s Central Valley. It usually arrives in winter between November and March but is experienced throughout the Central Valley of California. It is a type of radiation fog, caused by the combination of increased humidity following a recent rain and rapid cooling temps that occur during longer winter nights. It is common between mountain ranges where little wind occurs, accompanied by layered, moist air from the Pacific Ocean and cool, crisp and clear star-filled skies. The two mountain ranges that border the Carrizo Plain, The Temblors and the Caliente Mountains, lie within the Coastal and Transverse ranges, allowing for this atmospheric natural wonder to fill in overnight, adding to the diversity of the teeming grasslands.

Weather layering

While observing the browsing tule elk herd as they meandered eastward

The morning sun highlighted a herd of elk as they grazed unencumbered in front of the tule fog. toward the Temblors, that tule fog in turn acted like a ghostly vapor. The morning sun really highlighted 200 herbivores as they grazed unencumbered in front of the tule fog. Within an hour though, they had vanished, the tule fog swallowing up every elk. From afar, it looked peaceful as they sauntered off into the abyss, but in actuality, there was a lot going on in the atmosphere hanging above the grasslands. Tule fog condenses when there is a high relative humidity that follows a heavy rain, something that occurs infrequently on the Carrizo Plain. During wet years, the grasslands might get 10 inches across the semi-arid grasslands. The nights are longer in the winter months, which allows an extended period of ground cooling, and thereby a pronounced temperature inversion at a low altitude. And because there isn’t a lot of wind during the winter months, it can’t dislodge the tule fog. Warmer air from above pressing down from atop the Temblors and Calientes traps the cold air creating an immobile fog. Out on the Carrizo Plain, tule fog typically burns off by late morning or early afternoon.

pileups can have visibility that goes from 600 feet to nil quite rapidly. However, out on the Carrizo Plain tule fog works to a landscape photographer’s advantage. During the Super Bloom of 2019, I awoke before sunrise to low-lying tule fog and ominous storm clouds hovering above, but there was a massive gap between the two weather patterns. First light of a new day had pushed its way between the fog and the clouds. Deep purple hues offset the blanket of fog and clouds. A two-page spread of that morning appears on page 66 in the “Reflections” section of my new book: “Carrizo Plain, Where the Mountains Meet the Grasslands.” As soon as I saw what was unfolding before me, I drove off in a hurry for Simmler Road, an alkali track which runs between Soda Lake and several concealed vernal pools. Shadows can be a challenge with landscape photography, and I knew

diffused light would reign supreme across the sweeping carpets of tickseed coreopsis, purple phacelia, Japanese hyacinth, tidy tips and larkspur, and no shadows to contend with. When I found what I wanted, I went to work marveling at the diversity of native flora popping with colors so fleeting that within two weeks they would be gone until the next monumental bloom. Standing there in silence with no one around and an abundance of color, I wanted the moment to last much longer. After all, there’s no telling when the next Super Bloom might occur.

A 1942 Carpinteria Murder Mystery: Who killed Margaret Senteney Part 1 of 2

It stands as Carpinteria’s greatest murder mystery, an infamous story in the classic sense of “true crime,” shaking the community at large like a tidal wave, appearing and disappearing, only to reappear again and then vanish amidst years of rumor and speculation. This feature was written by former CVN editor Paul Sisolak and originally published in Carpinteria Magazine, Summer 2007. On Aug. 29, 1942, the body of 20-yearold Margaret Senteney was discovered in a wooded area near the property of Maestro Leopold Stokowski, adjacent to the Carpinteria foothills in Toro Canyon. An apparent homicide, her body laid facing upward with signs of head trauma and strangulation. Senteney had gone missing the evening prior, having been on her way to a friend’s home to spend the night. Her walk would have taken her down a fairly isolated road near the former Carpinteria Union High School, where she had graduated two years prior. “Her friends are convinced that she was forcibly abducted as she walked along the road,” read a news report from the archives of the Carpinteria Herald. A search party composed of about 40 citizens and a group of Boy Scouts had gone looking for Senteney before her body was found that day by the caretaker of Stokowski’s estate, who had been out for a walk. It was later concluded through autopsy results that Senteney died from strangulation by a rope or wire. Her head had been bludgeoned and skull split open, they determined, after she died. Missing from her body were several articles of clothing: a shoe, a tweed coat and a purse. There were also signs of an attempted rape, but no struggle; according to the Herald, the girl was found with dirt in her mouth, torn fingernails and other signs of a fight, though investigators believed at the time there was no indication the murder happened in the spot the body was found. That was partially because certain important evidence went missing from the actions of a respected police officer who first arrived at the crime scene. Apparently, beside her ran a set of lone tire tracks and footprints on the dirt road. But Leonard Kirkes, 36, a minister’s son from Carpinteria, churchgoing family man, and an eight-year California Highway Patrol officer, bright, respected and a top scorer in police tests, was caught by another officer clumsily trampling over most of the tracks in the dirt. That officer, Undersheriff John Ross, was the son of the prominent sheriff and Kirkes’ friend. Ross told Kirkes to guard the body while he radioed for backup, but upon returning, found the dirt tracks gone. One finding that compounded the situation further was a series of markings on Senteney’s right leg. Where they came from was anybody’s guess; with the imprints in the dirt gone, who might have killed her, or why, has remained a mystery. The discovery of Senteney’s body came as a shock to the small community of Carpinteria. One longtime resident who wished to remain anonymous was a third grader at Aliso School and remembered when Charles Senteney, custodian there,

CARPINTERIA HERALD ARCHIVE IMAGES

Leonard Kirkes was described as a handsome, strapping man who knew everyone in Carpinteria. The father of a 6-year-old boy, he was a helper in Boy Scout activities and a member of the Lions Club. Margaret Senteny graduated from Carpinteria Union High School in 1940. learned of his daughter’s death. “I can remember him going into the office, coming back out screaming with his hands on his head,” she said. Senteney ran out to the Aliso front lawn, banging on the grass in shrieked screams of “No!”

A floor mat vanished

Nearly a week passed when Ross received a phone call from an alarmed liquor dealer. Harry Liebler told Ross that an agitated and nervous Kirkes had visited his Carpinteria store the day of the murder. Kirkes confessed to Liebler that he covered up the tire tracks at the scene; they resembled too similarly the treads of his 1939 Ford, said Kirkes. Kirkes asked Liebler to be his alibi. If anyone asks, the patrolman told him, I was in here the evening of the murder buying liquor. But Liebler trusted in Ross and told the budding sheriff that this wasn’t true. This piqued Ross’ interest in the case and raised a suspicious red flag—one of the first—for his friend Kirkes. Ross did some poking around and discovered Kirkes had been doing more than just asking local merchants to corroborate his story. Kirkes had also patronized a local service station that week, thoroughly and meticulously cleaning out the trunk of his car with an air hose roughly grabbed from a station attendant. Not satisfied, Ross learned, Kirkes had requested the entire ’39 Ford repainted and cleaned. Since the Liebler phone call, Ross wondered why every clue kept pointing back to Kirkes and his car. Those odd imprints on Senteney’s leg, according to the county coroner, matched up with the pattern of a floor mat found only in then-current model Ford coupes. The floor mat of Kirkes’ Ford was missing. The coroner’s theory—that Senteney’s body was perhaps shoved into the truck of the Ford—seemed more than coincidental. It shed light on Kirkes’ uncharacteristic behavior; why would a Vanderbilt University graduate, at the top of his class, display such sloppy police work? Ross decided to approach the district attorney and pursue murder charges

for Kirkes. The patrolman was brought in for questioning but denied everything; the D.A. told Ross that most of the evidence was circumstantial, too light to build a solid murder case. Ross was left stymied, and Kirkes returned back to the highway patrol, soon after leaving with the Red Cross for a World War II tour of duty in the Aleutian Islands. Along with his departure went the Senteney case, sitting unsolved for years. Pick up next week’s Coastal View News for the conclusion of this feature.
