County plans for Covid-19 vaccine distribution

Santa Barbara County has been working for months to prepare plans for the local distribution of a Covid-19 vaccine, which may be available in limited doses before the end of the year. As two vaccines have made their way through extensive clinical trials and approached approval for public use, the county has been mapping strategies to efficiently and e ectively vaccinate the public once vaccines are authori ed for emergency use by the Federal Drug Administration. Though the timing and quantity of vaccine availability are outside of county control, plans will allow for proper infrastructure support and prioritize recipients. rontline hospital wor ers and the residents and sta of senior living communities will be targeted to receive the first vaccines available in the area. y spring of , it is likely that the vaccine will be available to the general public in several locations throughout Santa Barbara County, including Carpinteria.

N C ’ assistant director promotes healthy habits

BY NOE PADILLA

In August, Eduardo Gamboa was hired as the new assistant director of the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County, Carpinteria Unit. Prior to joining the Carpinteria team, he was the athletic director at a Boys & Girls Club in Monterey, California. Gamboa has always looked for ways to help people. Prior to working at the Boys & Girls Clubs, Gamboa wanted to work in the public health sector in hopes of helping to reduce the obesity rate within the Latino community. This led him to study Kinesiology at California State University, Monterey Bay. But after graduating college, he began to work at the Boys & Girls Club, and his goals shifted. “My goals just turned from wanting to work with adults that are already going through it (obesity) to targeting kids. Because that is probably the best way to prevent obesity, by starting with young people and creating those habits,” said Gamboa. At the Carpinteria Club, Gamboa implemented the Healthy Habits program, which is designed to teach kids the importance of a healthy diet and regular physical activity. For Gamboa, building meaningful relationships is key to a successful youth development program. “I think it comes from building relationships with the kids, being able to see who they are and will become, said amboa. t’s di erent from being a teacher, because we get to see them all year round (and over several years), so we get to see them grow up as opposed to the one year with them and then you get a new class.” As assistant director, Gamboa has had to tackle the logistical aspects

from Wednesday to Friday; while students in pod B go to the club from Monday to Wednesday and attend school on Thursday and Friday. Gamboa and the club have separated the kids into four groups of 14 members to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19 and to adhere to social distancing protocols. Due to Covid-19, the overall number of kids allowed to be in the clubs has been significantly reduced and because of that, the club only accepts kids that schools have referred to the club and have deemed to be most in need of the club’s support. Although Gamboa has been busy handling the logistics of running the club, he still tries to be involved with youth activities. The week of Thanksgiving, Gamboa and his team handed out 57 meal boxes to families in need. Gamboa also helped solicit donors for the club’s “Adopt a Family” program, where donors can purchase gifts for families who may not be able to a ord non-essentials this year. “One family that participated put down something that they needed for their house and the donors were willing to buy it for them, and the family almost started crying when we let them know they were going to be able to do that,” said Gamboa. “Just knowing that we’re able to help people is a great feeling to have.”

Obituary

Lucille Juanita Coke 10/12/1929 – 12/4/2020

Lucille Juanita Coke, 91, of Carpinteria, passed away on Dec. 4, 2020. She was born to the late Minor and Opal Deering on Oct. 12, 1929 in Turkey, Texas. Lucille married the late Eugene Coke in 1945. She had three children, Ronald, Daniel and Karen. The family moved to Carpinteria in 1957 which is where she raised her children. She is survived by her son Daniel (Roxanne) Coke; daughter Karen Corral; and seven grandchildren, Shannon (Mike) Bernstein, Stacey (Robert) Leyva, Kristen (Matt) Sutton, Julia (Brandon) Lampe, Anica (Martin) Hill, Tiffani (Marcos) Ortega and Tyler (Cassandra) Corral. She

has 19 great grandchildren. She is also survived by three sisters eggy arfield, Dixie (Thomas) Bradsher and Linda Scott. Upon moving to the small beach town of Carpinteria, Luiclle instantly fell in love with the beach and we spent almost every day there, weather permitting. That spirit and love of the beach was instilled in the family early on, and it still exists through several generations. She was a member of the Carpinteria Community Church, and until recently, she was active in lawn bowling in Santa Barbara. She also loved playing bingo with the Carpinteria seniors. Lucille was the second oldest of the children in her large family. She was a caregiver and supported her family in any way to improve their lives. We often had her siblings and family living with us when they were going through difficult times and illnesses. She took care of family and friends and was dedicated to helping others. We want to thank Mission Terrace and r. mlid, and the nurses and sta who gave such special care and attention to our mom. We really appreciate all you did for her and to help us during this time. There will be a private family service at a date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to your local food bank or to the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.

VIEWPOINT Family demonstrates kindness in action

BY JANE BENEFIELD I don’t know her well, but I know she’s well worth knowing. Her name is Anita Garcia and I got acquainted with her and her 11-year-old daughter Bella through Next Door. Many of you who’ve signed up for e t oor may have seen arcia’s o er to shop for anyone in need—whether fearful or unable due to the pandemic. To help others, Garcia pursues sales, bargains and giveaways from Costco, Trader Joe’s, Smart & Final, Dollar Store and Albertsons. She uses coupons, appeals to those of us with more than we need and shops bargains on- and o ine. he does this to help others gather and save money on needed items—food and clothing, cleaning supplies, hygiene packets and more. She and Bella also assemble baggies of personal hygiene items and hand them out with small bags of cereal, crackers and snacks. In a word, Garcia is an angel. I was skeptical because people just aren’t that kind or are they? But she is the real deal. When I met her—amidst boxes of donations—in her condo near the lu s, her giving spirit filled the space. I asked Garcia why she was going above and beyond to help her neighbors and she said that she had a painful childhood and experienced many daunting tribulations in her life. She said that she survived adversity and flourished due to the help of others.

Anita Garcia and her daughter Bella have been volunteering in the community to help residents during the pandemic. do this because it fills me up, said Garcia. Anita was a medical worker but lost her job due to Covid-19. She’s young and wants to be a nurse, which seems like a natural fit. he currently cleans houses and volunteers with the Red Cross. Garcia is currently collecting clothing to help people in need during the colder months. She’s particularly looking for jackets, sweaters, socks and blankets. To donate or help Garcia in one of her volunteer initiatives, contact Anita Garcia via e t oor or call ane enefield at (805) 684-6086.

CIF delays start of fall sports

On Dec. 1, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) announced that due to the surge of Covid-19 infections in California, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) postponed the release of youth sport guidelines and CIF will postpone all in-person practices and competitions until after Jan. 1, 2021. At the start of the new year, CDPH will reassess the program and determine if it is safe for students, in which case CIF will update the guidance for youth sports. If it is not safe, CIF will continue to postpone activities. CIF has cancelled all Regional and State championships for all season one sports. CIF seeks to give student-athletes the opportunity to participate in a longer season, rather than a truncated season with post-season events being limited to a number of schools. Additionally, boys’ volleyball has been moved to season two in hopes of avoiding the loss of a second season. An updated season two calendar will be released in January with boys’ volleyball included.

“To lump us in with areas that will certainly trigger a shutdown is not only troublesome, but it is irrational. Hundreds of businesses and thousands of livelihoods are on the chopping block because of this decision.”

––Toby Theule

Parking idea

As a Carpinteria resident for the past 55 years and a former City Councilman, I want to voice my support for the hotel. I feel it will make a great addition to our city and at a great location. Most of the negative talk centers around the loss of parking. The majority of the time the lot sits mostly empty other than parking for the commercial building across the street. I feel a great idea, which I’ve never heard mentioned, would be for the city to partner with the State Park to use their always empty and very large parking lot that fronts on Linden Avenue.

Ray Seider Carpinteria

Postpone big decisions

Why is it that during a pandemic we as a city are considering a project as large as a hotel downtown that would alter the look of our beachside city and impact so many? It seems a moratorium on something so nonessential would be in order. We already have six motels, lots of rentals by the beach area and a state park to accommodate visitors so there doesn’t appear to be any urgency for this for-profit pro ect. This campaign for the project has all the earmarks of the large Venoco platform and the introduction of cannabis to Carpinteria—money being spent, division in the community and a feeling of being pushed rapidly into making decisions. We would do better to perhaps take a breather and calmly consider this project when the community, nation and the world are in recovery from Covid-19 and it has our full attention.

Susan Skenderian Carpinteria

Open letter to the governor

Thank you very much for revising this latest plan to be based on intensive care unit (ICU) bed capacity, instead of Covid-19 case numbers. (It is widely known and accepted that Covid-19 cases have gone up because of increased testing.) But I believe it is a wrong and detrimental decision for you to place Santa Barbara County in a region that includes Los Angeles to San Diego County. The population density could not be more di erent in our county and area, versus down south. As of Thursday morning, Dec. 3, there were still 43% of Covid-19 beds available in Santa Barbara County hospitals, and only nine of those beds were being used for ICU Covid-19 patients in the whole county. And during the entire pandemic, occupancy has never exceeded 69% in the ICU. To lump us in with areas that will certainly trigger a shutdown is not only troublesome, but it is irrational. Hundreds of businesses and thousands of livelihoods are on the chopping block because of this decision. To be clear, I don’t want to endanger our elderly and immune-compromised population. Covid-19 is terrible, and I understand the need for precautions. But this decision is just plain faulty, and I’m encouraging others to write to your office in protest.

A woman and man were contacted as their vehicle was getting dropped off by a tow truck. The woman is on active probation and a search of her property showed she had meth, a meth pipe and a container of pepper spray. She is a convicted felon and prohibited from owning pepper spray. A baggie of meth was found in the center console and since no one wanted to claim it, the man was given ownership since it was his vehicle.

3:38 a.m. / Dope Violations / 4100 block Via Real

A woman and man were in a vehicle with a stolen license plate, reported to Santa Barbara Police Department. A traffic stop was initiated, and it was determined the vehicle was not stolen, but was rented a few weeks ago by the woman. She thought the “P E R M” on the Arizona license plate meant it was only a “ permit” for the vehicle and not an actual license plate. So, to avoid getting pulled over, they placed a stolen plate on the car, she said. After a search of nearby motel rooms associated with the subj ects, they, and the woman’s sister, were cited for possession of stolen property, meth and paraphernalia. Further investigation will be done for the fraudulently obtained EBT cards.

Emily’s prints, drawings, photographs and paintings are “little windows to other, more fanciful worlds.” “I’m inspired by the ocean, mountains and islands that have surrounded me throughout my life, as well as all kinds of plants and animals,” stated Emily in her artist statement. “Hazy Daze” will be on view at IBC until January. To learn more about Emily’s work, visit lovelywasteland.com. IBC’s new beer, Oh, Behaze!

“ L ike many small- town teenagers, I dreamed of a bigger life in a bigger city,” said Ki rk Watanabe, who attended U CL A after Cate School. I n 198 9, thanks to an introduction from a roommate’s friend, the E nglish maj or got a j ob as a team attendant “ ball boy” for his favorite team, the L os Angeles Lake rs. From there, things got a whole lot bigger. So big, in fact, his lifestyle included hanging out and having meals with hoop stars like E arvin “ Magic” J ohnson and Byron Scott. “ I t was a different era. N o entourage then. I t was very innocent in a way,” W atanabe said. I n the early 1990s, after J ohnson contracted HI V and his subseq uent retirement from the Lake rs, he hired the Carpinterian as his personal assistant and had him run the Magic J ohnson All- Stars. The barnstorming team traveled the globe playing local professional and Olympic teams while using the opportunity to educate the public on HI V and AI DS. At the time, some countries denied J ohnson entry because he was HI V positive. I n those instances, areem bdul abber would ll in. A lifelong lover of basketball, Watanabe pla ed his rst game o organi ed basketball as an eighth grader at the then Carpinteria Boys Club ( now the U nited Boys & G irls Clubs of Santa Barbara, Carpinteria U nit) . Watanabe’s farming family moved to Carpinteria to grow strawberries, cherimo as, lemons, cut flowers and nursery plants. He played on Carpinteria High School’s freshman team before transferring to Cate where he played as a Ram for three years. “I wasn’t a great player, but I loved it,” Watanabe said. He also loved watching professional games with school friends and Cate staff—man y from the Eas t Coast, i.e., Celtic fans— and bonding through a fun rivalry with the adults. “ We did what we now call ‘ trash talking’ and it was fun for us as teachers to get to know our students so well,” said Frank

I n the 198 0s, when Magic J ohnson’s L akers faced L arry Bird’s Celtics, the opposing fans’ passion reached a fever pitch on the Cate campus. “ I j oke with ( K irk) that his career with the L akers makes him one of the most accomplished basketball alumni Cate has ever had, though certainly not as a pla er. ri n has ond recollections of Watanabe saying his legacy as a Cate student is his work ethic, diligence and subsequ ent growth. Watanabe has a gift with all kinds of people, who gravitate toward his enthusiasm and positivity. These attributes and his love for basketball opened doors for him at the Fabulous Forum, where he had numerous responsibilities in the L aker organi ation. “M agic was the hardest boss, ex acting and demanding so much,” Watanabe said of the sports legend. Well acquai nted with hard work, Watanabe rose to the occasion. After all, he grew up on a arm bundling flowers at a.m. to sell at the Farmers Market which opened at 6 a.m., picking crops early weekend mornings to sell out of the car trunk in Santa Barbara, and operating the farm’s strawberry stand.

who found great success in the big city, Watanabe has returned home.

Phenomenal Asiago Potatoes with cooking spray. Set aside.

CVN

Trim stalks from fennel bulbs then cut them in half and remove the core. Slice bulbs and potatoes very thin (1/8 inch thick). Unless you have a sharp knife and a practiced eye, use a mandolin slicer for evenness.

CHEF RANDY RANDY GRAHAM The Asiago cheese makes this recipe a sophisticated alternative to traditional scalloped potatoes. The combination of potatoes and fennel, in a creamy Asiago cheese sauce, will put a smile on your face. Best of all, it will put a smile on the faces of your family and friends. I normally serve this as an alternative potato dish at my Christmas dinner.

Ingredients:

2 medium fennel bulbs (trimmed and sliced thin) 1½ pounds russet potatoes (peeled and sliced thin) 1 tablespoon butter Coarse salt and ground pepper 1 cup plus 6 tablespoons Asiago cheese (grated) 2/3 cup heavy cream

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare an 8-inch square baking dish by spraying

Add potatoes and fennel to the prepared dish in three layers (potatoes, fennel, potatoes . prin le the first and second layers with three tablespoons of Asiago cheese and ½ tablespoon butter. Season each layer with a little salt and pepper. Pour cream over top. Bake for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the remaining ½ cup cheese on top. Return to the oven and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Randy Graham is a noted chef and writer and has been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for over 38 years. Chef Randy has written and published a series of seven cookbooks with original recipes developed over the period 1975 through 2020. He writes for the Ojai Quarterly, the Ojai Discover Monthly, and the California 101 Travelers Guide.

A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Jeff Y. Shu in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara. The PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Jeff Y. Shu be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on January 7, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 5 of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara, Anacapa Division, at 1100 Anacapa Street, P.O.

Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. Toll free numbers may or may not reach Canada.

THROWBACK

The Ezaki Family under the grapevine BY JIM CAMPOS

The Ayala Grapevine was planted by Joaquina de Lugo Ayala on the family farm in 1842 between what became Santa Monica Road and Cravens Lane. It was regarded as the world’s largest grapevine of its time. It was also the most iconic “living thing” in the Carpinteria Valley, certainly the most photographed until its demise. Carpinterians moved it around the community after it died circa 1915. To preserve it, it was covered with Creosote—think of the petroleum-based oil on railroad ties—then planted in cement at various Carpinteria locations. ts first rest stop was at the old Aliso School on Walnut Avenue, then the Fish Auto Beach Camp. Eventually it made its way back to its original location where it finally disintegrated in 1924, eaten by termites. Its “once upon a time” presence, however, continues to represent the Carpinteria Valley to this day. The Grapevine is the title and logo for the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History’s bi-monthly newsletter, and it is represented on the great seal of the city of Carpinteria. Robert Perez, Carpinteria High School Class of 1967, won the art contest to create the city seal by depicting
