Meet Maria Supporting Carpinteria EMERGENCY &VERIFICATION MiddleCARD School

Local public schools are the backbone of any OF ADDRESS RETURN: community. Supporting Carpinteria Middle School is the largest ongoing investment of CARP Growers, which has pledged nearly $200,000 to CMS and the futures of Carpinteria’s 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Financial support for the school has been directed at creating a culture of success and inclusion for all students. To this end, CARP Growers enabled the school to hire an afterschool running coach to facilitate Running Club. Also, in collaboration with the Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse, students have access to a full-time Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Counselor to support their emotional needs and personal well being. Carpinteria public schools remain a healthy, positive environment for local youth, who have the greatest success when they are involved and invested in their schools. Access to active afterschool enrichment programs and specialized counselors help students to stay connected to their schools and grow into lifelong learners. GO RED HAWKS!

Over her 30-year career, Maria Vega has worked at multiple Carpinteria Valley greenhouse farms growing a variety of crops. She is now the procurement manager and plays a key role on the sales team at Primetime Farms. Maria says that working in the cannabis industry provides year-round opportunities for personal growth and she appreciates learning new job skills as she takes on new responsibilities within the company. Maria (and several of her family members) directly experience the benefits that cannabis jobs have for local families as the roles offer more competitive compensation packages than other agricultural work.

Good jobs. Great people. Local values.


Avocado & Cannabis Farmers Cooperate, Communicate and Co-exist A few years ago, avocado growers in Carpinteria Valley worried that being in close proximity to cannabis farms would threaten their existence. Pesticide regulations on cannabis farms are so strict that the product must be destroyed if it is contaminated with pesticides even to the level of

parts per billion. Avocado trees are treated for pests to help them to produce the beautiful fruit that Carpinteria Valley is known for. Through months of meetings and exchanging information about farming practices and locations, avocado growers and cannabis growers came away with a better understanding of each other and resolved concerns that avocado growers would be liable for contaminating the valuable cannabis crop. Neighbors working together found a lot of common ground. Carpinteria is rightfully proud of its favorite fruit (and maybe the world’s favorite fruit), avocados. Also as an important farm crop, cannabis is a valuable part of local agriculture and a beneficial medicine for people all over the world. Avocados and cannabis are both viable and profitable agricultural products, which puts local farming in a strong position for a sustainable future that insulates Carpinteria Valley from commercial and residential development. SUPPORTING AGRICULTURE MAINTAINS CARPINTERIA’S SMALL TOWN CHARM. #SAVECARPAG


CO2 Recycled to Power the Plants

Greenhouse farming is the best of both worlds. Plant growth is powered by natural sunlight, and the entire grow operation is contained and controlled to conserve resources and enhance plant production. During cool, overnight hours, hot water is circulated throughout cannabis greenhouses to provide radiant heat for optimal plant growth. The water in the boiler system is heated during the day through natural gas combustion. As a byproduct, the heating process creates carbon dioxide, which is bad for the environment but great for plants. Captured carbon dioxide is released under the plant beds and consumed by the plants, which turn the CO2 into oxygen through photosynthesis. The CO2 fed to the plants boosts production and provides 20-to-30 percent higher cannabis yields. HAPPY, HEALTHY PLANTS ARE NATURAL CONSUMERS OF GREENHOUSE GASES Paid Advertisement

Memorial planned for Conception fire victims BY NOE PADILLA

It’s been over a year since the Conception dive boat fire which led to the death of 34 people off the shores of Port Hueneme on Sept. 2, 2019. Since then, the Santa Cruz Island Foundation (SCIF) has sought to create a memorial honoring those who lost their lives that September morning. Marla Daily, president of SCIF, wanted to understand how the tragedy could have happened and how the community could honor those who lost their lives. She and the SCIF board of directors decided to create a monument dedicated to the survivors which will be housed at a new cultural institution in Carpinteria—the Chrisman California Islands Center—to be located at the former Bank of America building on Linden Avenue. The foundation received cooperation from the Coast Guard, Navy and FBI regarding the creation of this monument. The FBI gave SCIF members access to the remains of the ship which were located on the Port Hueneme Naval Base. The group was allowed to remove a bronze propeller from the ship, which “took almost two hours to cut off” and “weighed almost 300 pounds,” explained Daily. SCIF intends to use the propeller as the

main ornament of the monument, that will be placed on top of a slab of granite and plated with the names of those who died in the Conception fire. The monument will be fabricated by the Santa Barbara Monumental Co. and is expected to be finished by early November. Although the center’s development is still waiting for approval from the city of Carpinteria, initial plans are underway to display the Conception monument alongside a monument dedicated to the 12 airmen who crashed on the San Miguel Island during World War II. The San Miguel monument is currently being held on loan at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently announced their findings regarding their investigation into the fire, with NTSB Chairman Robert L. Sumwalt stating, “the Conception may have passed all Coast Guard inspections, but that did not make it safe.” The NTSB determined that the probable cause of the fires was due to an absence of a roving patrol that night which missed the early signs of the fire. Daily hopes that SCIF’s Conception monument will bring some peace to the families that lost loved ones in the tragedy, saying that “all of the families will be invited to the monument reveal.”

The city of Carpinteria has announced that its annual Downtown Trick-or-Treat event will not be held this year. State and county guidance designed to slow the spread of Covid-19 prohibit gatherings of this type. “We look forward to bringing back this well-loved tradition next year,” said the city in a release, “but in the meantime, health and safety must be our top priority.” For ideas on how to participate in holiday fun that offers a lower risk than traditional trick-or-treating, the county of Santa Barbara Public Health Department suggests watching Halloween movies at home or virtually with others; attending a Halloween movie night at drive-in theaters (that comply with the state guidance); participating in a virtual costume party or doing virtual craft projects; and decorating your house or apartment inside and out.

Foodbank launches turkey drive

The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is asking community members to donate 4,000 fresh or frozen turkeys and chickens to help provide holiday meals to local families who cannot afford them. With a significant increase in need this year, the Foodbank hopes to receive 4,000 turkeys/ chickens, up 1,000 from last year’s goal (3,000). The 2020 Turkey Drive runs from Oct. 26 through the holiday season. Community members may drop off turkeys or chickens at the Foodbank’s warehouses Monday through Friday in Santa Barbara at 4554 Hollister Ave. from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Birds must be dropped off by Nov. 23 to ensure delivery to families in time for Thanksgiving, but the Foodbank will accept donations through Dec. 11 for other holiday meals. Community members or local businesses who would like to host a turkey drive may call (805) 319-9096 or email: jjenkins@foodbanksbc.org.

Alzheimer Association hosts fundraising walk

On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Alzheimer’s Association Central Coast Chapter will be hosting its “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” at 9:30 a.m. in Carpinteria. In cooperation with the Alzheimer’s Association and because of concern with Covid-19, the Carpinteria Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Group (CACSG) has elected to conduct the event in town. Participants should meet at the Linden Seal Fountain and proceed to GranVida Senior Living and Memory Care, through Casitas Plaza and across to Shepard Plaza, before returning back to the Seal Fountain. The loop is a mile and a half walk.  There will also be a shorter walk from the Seal Fountain to the beach and back for those who can’t make the longer walk. GranVida hopes participants will walk with their “Purple Team” which is composed of residents and staff.   CACSG wants to bring awareness to the community regarding dementias such as Alzheimer’s—which comprises 60-80% of dementias—Lewy-body, Pick’s disease and other deteriorating brain afflictions, while at the same time trying to raise funds for research in hopes of finding a cure.  Organizers request that participants follow social distancing guidelines and wear a mask.

Vote! Everything depends on it CVN

THE LAY OF THE LAND MIKE WONDOLOWSKI My first exposure to the nuts and bolts of the land development process was in late 1989 when a notice arrived in the mail about an upcoming hearing for a proposal to build a 300-house ocean-front development on a sweeping and beloved blufftop area near our home in Goleta. I had finished my degree at UCSB a few months earlier, and Diane and I had just married and moved to the area the previous month. We attended the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) scoping hearing, met several of our neighbors for the first time, and found we all had concerns about the proposed project. Over the next few months, we learned from other neighbors who had some knowledge about the planning process and provided our public comment on the EIR as it was developed. The huge negative impacts of the project were becoming clearly documented in the EIR, and we felt confident that it would be obvious to decision makers that this project couldn’t be approved. We had succeeded! (Spoiler alert: Nope.) More months passed as the developer submitted last-minute changes to the plan necessitating further analysis. After three years of various twists and turns, the County Planning Commission voted in November 1992 to recommend denial of the project. Finally, real victory! (Spoiler alert: Again, nope!) The developer had one more shot at the County Board of Supervisors who would consider the Planning Commission recommendation but could still approve or deny the project. Through winter and spring of 1993, the supervisors reviewed the proposal, and in June they were ready to decide. Now let me backup a little. Then, as now, Santa Barbara County politics were deeply divided along North vs. South, pro-development vs. slow-growth perspectives. In November 1992, South County resident Bill Wallace was the incumbent Third District Supervisor being challenged by North County resident Willy Chamberlin. That election went down in history as the closest supervisorial election in county history. The certified election result showed Chamberlin winning by seven votes. A month-long recount resulted in Chamberlin’s margin being reduced to only five votes. In January 1993, he was sworn into office as supervisor. For the first time in decades, three of the five supervisors were pro-development. Wallace contested the election in court claiming dozens of valid votes were not counted in Isla Vista, which had voted exceptionally strongly in his favor. Court decisions were made, an appeal was filed, and things were still in process in June 1993. With Chamberlin still in office as supervisor, he voted with the two other pro-development supervisors to approve the housing project. Oh no! We lost!

“Every vote counts”? Yes. But it really only counts if it is submitted correctly and on time. (Spoiler alert: Nope to that too.) Fast forward through Coastal Commission actions and various lawsuits filed by the group we had formed with our neighbors. In April 1994, 17 months after the election, a state Court of Appeals ruled Chamberlin did not win, but in fact lost by 12 votes. He was replaced on the Board of Supervisors by slow-growth advocate Bill Wallace… but all Chamberlin’s decisions stood. Although heavily constrained by the Board’s previous decisions, with Wallace on the Board new decisions began to shift the trajectory of the project. Again, fast-forward through years of more lawsuits, more elections, and more county and Coastal Commissions decisions. In 2005, escrow closed on a complex deal that permanently protected the coastal blufftop under public ownership. Wait, we finally won? YES! We have all heard stories about how “every vote counts,” maybe in an election in some town in Iowa with 132 people where some guy loses the race for dogcatcher by one vote because he and his wife were too busy campaigning to vote. But the Wallace-Chamberlin election had over 36,000 votes cast, and the margin of victory was seven… until it was 12 the other way. “Every vote counts”? Yes. But it really only counts if it is submitted correctly and on time. In grade school we were taught to follow directions carefully. Quite possibly, the most important reason for that lesson was so we could make sure our vote would count when we grew up. Here is one way to summarize what is required for a democratic society to prosper: Step 1: You must care enough to want to make a difference. Step 2: You must act to make that difference. In this column, I often address aspects of both steps, generally with the goal of motivating you to tell our civic leaders what is important to you. But I hope you can see from my experience above that this effort can be wasted time if you don’t care enough to act with your vote to select leaders who will work in your best interest—at the local, state and national levels. Vote! Everything depends on it. 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.

“Regardless of political affiliations, we need to demand that those who represent us in Washington, D.C. stop behaving like immature children and begin doing serious work that will benefit the American people.”

–– Sanderson M. Smith

Let’s focus on respect and kindness

Thank you, Keith Stein, for bringing the words “respect” and “civil” into the conversation (CVN, Letters, Vol. 27, No. 5). Right now, we are all faced with two monumental issues: Covid and the upcoming elections.  First, let’s remember what we have in common.  I believe we all want good health for ourselves, family and friends. We all would like to be treated with kindness and respect.  However, emotions are running rampant and many of us have become passionate about our beliefs. Passion is a powerfully positive emotion. Passions of the heart and/or mind can have wondrous results. However, when passion becomes an obsession, the emotion becomes powerfully negative. There can be no conversation. Kindness and respect are reserved only for those whose obsession is “like-minded.” Please, as we may be faced with another “wave” of Covid outbreaks and as election day draws closer, let’s focus on respect and kindness towards one another.

Roz Kohute Carpinteria

Understand and compromise

Kudos to longtime Carpinteria resident and friend, Keith Stein, for his recent letter expressing his views on the proposed Surfliner Inn (CVN, Letters, Vol. 27, No. 5).  Mr. Stein clearly stated his opinions relating to the issue while showing total respect for those who disagree with him.  I especially liked his final sentence: “Whatever happens with this project, let’s all be civil to each other and set an example for others to follow.” I have my own personal views relating to the Surfliner Inn, President Trump, Salud Carbajal, Amy Comey Barrett, health care, taxes and many other controversial items.  As best I can, I try to follow Mr. Stein’s wise suggestion to display respect for those who disagree with me. I enjoy being part of the membership at Carpinteria Community Church where members of the congregation do hold differing views on vital issues, but everyone is treated with total respect. Like Mr. Stein, I hope we, as a country, can calmly respect the results of Nov. 3 and return to a sense of normalcy. One thing I hope we can agree on:  Regardless of political affiliations, we need

to demand that those who represent us in Washington, D.C. stop behaving like immature children and begin doing serious work that will benefit the American people. Compromise is always possible.  We need to simply get rid of those who don’t understand this and put their political party before the welfare of our country.  Personally, I would consider voting for any politician who could convince me that he/she understood the concept of compromise and would follow the sensible suggestion offered by Mr. Stein.

Sanderson M. Smith, Ed.D. Carpinteria

City needs inn revenue

The financial benefits of the proposed Surfliner Inn cannot be ignored. The city would own the hotel property and would receive over $500k annually in terms of rent and in terms of trades. The development would bring new tourism dollars, add employment and beautify the area as a compliment to the community garden. Most of those against the proposed development speak to decreased parking and increased congestion as the main concerns. Yes, parking is a concern for most of Carpinteria, even in the residential areas outside of the downtown corridor. The proposed lot of 31 new spaces south of the railroad tracks will have an enter/ exit on Linden Avenue, not on Dorrance. I expect the stop sign at Dorrance may become permanent and will help ease access to and from this parking lot. I think the placement of this new lot would reduce the amount of circling cars looking for street parking and would therefore ease some of the parking woes experienced in the beach neighborhood. If parking is the main concern against the development, then I think it’s fair to request city leaders address parking alternatives in general, such as increasing shuttle service and evaluating lease options for undersubscribed commercial lots in the industrial communities. I look forward to seeing this unfold and if passed, I will be excited for the future of Carpinteria in terms of new investment in additional open space, improved parks and trails, and generally less strain on the city’s $20 million annual budget.

LETTERS Continued from page 6

Public discourse of Surfliner Inn

The current discussions around the development of an hotel on the grounds of the Amtrak parking lot is conflating two separate public discourses that the City Council should be orchestrating. First, conversation should be structured around the use of public land for “joint development” with private developers/operators to run a commercial enterprise. The City Council should request the city manager to review the City Charter to see if there are any provisions that permit that type of activity. If so, then a separate discussion with public input and a vote should be taken to permit the repurposing of a valid public asset such as the Amtrak parking lot for commercial development. Second, (and maybe parallel) conversation should be structured around the need for a downtown hotel. The City Council should request the Planning Commission to look at potential development opportunities for a boutique hotel in accordance with the General Plan for the Downtown “T.” The current public parking at the Amtrak station was previously approved by the city since it meets valid city planning requirements (convenient parking to station and emergency usage/staging area when the freeway is shut down). City staff should then provide a recommendation back to the City Council on potential development sites that would start the request for proposals (RFP) process. Having the City Council structure the decisions this way will allow for proper public input on the above two questions and a more productive process. It is not too late for the public to demand that our City Council stops the current RFP that was signed and stop this “train” from leaving the “station” of transp arency and open city governance.

Alan and Carol Koch Carpinteria

Parking is at the heart of the matter

After reading the Coastal View News’ description of the Surfliner Inn proposal and the comments for/against it (CVN, Letters, Vol. 27, No. 5), I gather that the main issue is parking. More specifically, the issue is the loss of parking in the existing City Lot #3, plus paving half of the open space corridor as well as areas

Thursday, October 29, 2020  7

of the existing Community Garden Park. Go to any big city hotel and they have underground parking for guests and staff. They also charge guests a hefty parking fee ($50 a night is not unusual) to encourage the use of public transit. Yes, this will increase construction costs, but it makes the project viable and eliminates the need for paving over the Open Space Corridor and Community Garden areas. This would require the city to eliminate overnight parking in this lot except for Amtrak ticket holders. And the hotel should have bicycles and helmets available to rent or loan to guests for touring the city.

Gary Van Meter Carpinteria

Kudos to our Arts Center

Let’s give an enthusiastic “Hoorah!” for the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center! I am amazed by what this small non-profit has done and continues to do as we weather the very challenging Covid-19 Pandemic. Postcards from the Pandemic, the Teen Mural Project, the Mask-Up Carp Chalk Art, and the Mask Decorating Project (happening now) are all “Together/Apart” Projects. These activities have been designed so participants can work safely on their own to create their unique piece of art and contribute, with all the other pieces, to build a wonderful, communal mosaic. These shared art experiences have been uplifting for me. They have helped me feel less isolated and just plain happier. If you haven’t taken one of the Arts Center’s free classes, check them out on their website. You will find a variety of fun classes taught live, via Zoom. There is no charge, however you can make a donation. If you are able, please consider doing just that. The classes are free for participants, but the Arts Center pays the instructors. It’s often said and always true—“Every little bit helps.” At a time when businesses have had to close their doors, lay-off their employees and stop interaction with the public, the Carpinteria Arts Center has found a way to keep their staff employed and to provide opportunities for the community to make art and feel connected. This happens because of a tireless staff, hard-working volunteers, generous donors, a dedicated Board of Directors and a small town that loves its arts center.

Summerland highway construction begins

Caltrans launches next phase of multimodal Carpinteria to Santa Barbara highway project BY DEBRA HERRICK After over a decade of planning and discussion with the Summerland community, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) will break ground on Highway 101 improvements through the seaside village on Sunday evening, Nov. 1. The Highway 101: Summerland project will add a third lane to Highway 101 north- and southbound through Summerland, Class 1 bike lanes, new bridges and undercrossings at Evans Avenue and Sheffield Drive, updated on- and off-ramps, and drainage improvements. Summerland is the second of five segments under construction as part of the Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara project that will add peak-period, carpool lanes between Carpinteria and Santa Barbara. Second District County Supervisor and SBCAG Chair Gregg Hart noted that conversations with community members and meetings between SBCAG and the Summerland Association have been going on for more than 10 years, “and I think ultimately the package that is being constructed has a lot of benefits for the Summerland community.” Among the benefits Hart noted are improvements to the Evans Avenue and Highway 101 interchange that will give the 60-year old standard Caltrans architectural structure “a really needed refresh—creating a modern and landscaped underpass.” The contemporary design will include bike lanes and pathways to better connect pedestrians and cyclists to the beach, along with better lighting. “It’s what the community of Summerland has asked for,” said Hart, “much better connections for pedestrians and bikers.” The Class 1 bike lanes being constructed will ultimately connect to bike lane improvements along Santa Claus Lane connecting Summerland to Carpinteria by bike. But the larger project of improving infrastructure in Santa Barbara County goes back over two decades, said Hart, during which various community and government agencies have grappled with “fundamental disagreements on how to manage traffic in the Central Coast.” “As early as the 90s, there were advocates for train service only and advocates for freeway widening only,” Hart added, “and through a collaborative process we decided on doing both. We’re investing in rail service and highway improvements. We’re creating a multimodal corridor, linking all communities from Santa Barbara to Carpinteria.” The multimodal approach not only creates more rail service during peak hours and widens highways, but also creates more accessible pathways for walking and biking, all funded as one project. The state of California has paid for the majority of the Santa Barbara County Highway 101 projects through state gas taxes; and earlier this month, the ADVERTISEMENT

A rendering of the planned Evans Avenue overcrossing shows a safe crosswalk for pedestrians and a Class 1 bike lane.

In the fourth phase of the Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara project, construction will focus on the segment of freeway through Summerland including the Evans Avenue and Sheffield Drive undercrossings. California Transportation Commission allocated $89 million to the Summerland project, funded by Senate Bill 1 (SB1). The Highway 101: Summerland project construction and landscaping costs are approximately $113 million. “We’ve received more than half a billion dollars to fund this project,” Hart said, referring to the five highway segments included in the project throughout the county. In addition to state funds earmarked for Santa Barbara County’s highway improvements, the county has contributed $150 million from Measure A revenue, a .5% sales tax approved by voters in 2008. Measure A is expected to generate over $1 billion in 30 years to be used for various county infrastructure projects. This past summer, SBCAG and Caltrans applied for state funding for the two remaining segments in Montecito and Santa Barbara to complete construction in the corridor. The CTC will vote on SB1 funding awards in early December. “The Highway 101: Summerland project includes locally-inspired design elements that will highlight the unique community of Summerland at the Evans Avenue Undercrossing,” said First

Landscaping is planned to highlight Summerland’s community character, as shown in this rendering of the future Sheffield Avenue intersection. District County Supervisor and SBCAG Director Das Williams. “In addition, there will be important drainage improvements and the much anticipated third lane in each direction throughout Summerland that will create peak-period carpool lanes to help address ongoing traffic congestion.” The Highway 101: Summerland project adds safety improvements in an area that has not been updated since the freeway was originally built in the 1950s. By creating new right-hand on- and off-ramps at the Sheffield Drive Interchange, project developers expect declines in traffic congestion and accidents. “This is an important safety improvement because currently southbound vehicles are traveling up over Ortega Hill and traffic is merging on and off the freeway

with old, sub-standard left-hand ramps. Coupled with the added spectacular ocean views on this hill, merging into the fast lane causes regular traffic backups,” said Caltrans District 5 Director Tim Gubbins. As early as Nov. 1, residents should expect to see initial safety fencing, vegetation removal, tree trimming, safety barriers to shift lanes, and work to build up outside shoulders. Then lanes will be shifted, and construction will focus on the median and fast lanes of Highway 101. Construction through Summerland is estimated to take three years and then shift into the next segment which is the Sheffield interchange.

City Council to expand access to meetings via video monitor BY EVELYN SPENCE The Carpinteria City Council will be expanding public access to its meetings by adding a video monitor at Carpinteria City Hall, where community members can both watch the council’s meetings and speak on-camera if they wish to. The monitor will be available to the public beginning at the council’s Nov. 23 meeting. No one will be allowed in the City Council Chambers, where the monitor will be, beside the person speaking to a camera, according to Carpinteria City Manager Dave Durflinger. All community members who watch or speak during the meetings must follow social distancing protocols. Time indoors will be limited and all surfaces will be routinely disinfected. Currently, there are three options to watch council meetings: Channel 21 on Cox Cable, the Granicus live link on the Carpinteria City Council’s website and a live Zoom link. There are also currently four ways to speak during a Carpinteria City Council meeting: providing written comment, providing written comment that will be read aloud, providing telephone comment and participating through Zoom. Written comment that will be read aloud is limited to 250 words. The council will also begin providing live translations of the meetings in Spanish beginning Nov. 9, using the Zoom platform’s translation feature. The council’s next meeting will take place on Nov. 9 at 5:30 p.m.

Covid-19 update

Santa Barbara County’s Covid-19 case rate remains above the threshold required to move into a lower tier, according to Durflinger. “Unfortunately, some of the numbers are just too high,” Durflinger said. “For a long time, Santa Maria led (in

cases) ... and it’s now dropping, that’s a good trend,” he said. “Unfortunately, countering that is a rise… in Isla Vista” “If you take out the prison, and you look at everybody but I.V. and Santa Maria, the numbers don’t look too bad and we’d be there into the next tier.” He explained that the primary difference between the red tier, which Santa Barbara County currently remains at, and the orange tier, which is what the county is aiming for, is indoor occupancy rates. At the orange tier, businesses and restaurants can move from 25% indoor occupancy to up to 50% indoor occupancy. As of Oct. 26, there have been 9,820 cases of Covid-19 in Santa Barbara County as a whole and 214 cases in the South County Unincorporated Area, which includes Montecito, Summerland and the city of Carpinteria. At five cases, Isla Vista saw the highest number of new cases on Monday; the South County Unincorporated Area saw no new cases.

Sea rise level policies

The Carpinteria City Council unanimously voted to establish temporary guidelines for addressing sea level rise in the city of Carpinteria. The city is currently working on permanent policies, but temporary policies are needed for at least two years, Carpinteria Community Development Director Steve Goggia said. “Until our general plan update is complete, and when we have full policies addressing sea level rise, and (know) how we’re going to work with developers and homeowners to request information and to condition the projects, this is a pretty good idea where we’re going with this,” he said. “When the real policies come into place, these will go away.” Goggia said the policies will apply to development or redevelopment projects potentially affected by sea level rise.

Frecker Farms grows from dirt and grit

MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N At 32-years old, Alex Frecker owns and operates a 40-acre organic farm with only a small crew of six or seven full-time workers and a handful of people who run the markets. “We have an incredibly efficient crew that does amazing work for our size,” he commented. “In this business … you gotta be quick and nimble and able to problem solve on your feet which is something I love—farming is constantly entertaining.” Frecker Farms produce can be found at eight of the local farmers markets in Santa Barbara and at a stand Frecker opened on the farm in response to the pandemic. “I feel proud to be something different and it is inspiring to see other people stoked about what we’re doing,” he said. “I think that harboring life is something we all have in us whether we are raising babies, plants or just community in general.” At 14, at a father-son pickup hockey game, Frecker met John Givens of John

Alex Frecker started farming when he was 14. Today, at 32, he owns and tends to a 40-acre organic farm off Casitas Pass Road.

Frecker Farms grows a wide variety of produce, from fresh strawberries to squash blossoms.

Givens Farm and talked his way into his first summer job. He started by doing Saturday morning shifts at the farmers markets with Givens and his two sons which eventually led him to working on the farm. “I spent my summers putting up the greenhouse, doing field work, and eventually it just became full-time,” he recalled. “It seemed like the Wild West since there was so much to learn. A farm is a constant learning ground with constant opportunity and wonderment that drew me.” By 2013, Frecker wanted to do more. When he asked Givens about getting a higher position in the company, he didn’t get the answer he was expecting. He recalled, “John looked at me and told me that if I wanted to do what he thought I wanted to do, then I had to do it alone— get the grit and the experience, and figure it out for myself. I was so scared of being kicked out of the nest. I wanted the prestige and the growth without the fear of failure. If you’re in the driver’s seat, you reap what you sow and deal with the

consequences of your mistakes.” With the help of a friend, Frecker rented three and a half acres on Rincon Road. Over time, he got into some of the local farmers markets and began working with small businesses like the IV Cooperative and Harvest Santa Barbara. “It was a time of such tremendous learning,” he said, “pushing forward, willing things to happen, and not taking no for an answer because it was sink or swim. We started growing and I hired a couple more employees, rented 10 acres in the spot we’re currently at and since then, slowly acquired the rest of this property. No pun intended, we’ve really grown organically.” On how he persevered with his craft through difficult times, Frecker commented, “I stayed with farming because of the endless wonderment. There’s so much potential, even now when I’ve done this half my life … when I see a blank field, I still see endless potential. You can’t ever be bored, there’s always something to do. There’s something satisfying about the physical aspect of farming. You put in the physical labor of weeding the field and seeing it look uniform and beautiful.” Frecker Farms produce is all hand-harvested. They grow the majority of their transplants from seed which means they are involved in the entire process of cultivation. “During the pandemic, people are realizing that having a closer, direct relationship with their producer is a safer and more consistent position to be in than relying on large scale distribution,” he said. “We are able to create a lot of transparency with the farm stand. There is power in transparency and allowing people to come in and see where the food is grown and experience what it’s like to be on the farm.” Since opening a stand at their farm site, Frecker has been able to offer a sense of grandness about a farm that people aren’t used to receiving. Frecker commented, “there’s big open spaces, there’s chaos, there’s the organization of perfectly straight rows of plants. Having our hands and feet in the dirt and having this farm has created a real sense of groundedness in me and others that have been around us.” Visit freckerfarms.com for more information on which farmers markets they can be found at or stop by their farmstand at 6701 Casitas Pass Road on Wednesdays.

Comfort food and business advice found at Reyes Market

TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P Guanajuato is a colorful city in the heart of Mexico with jaw-dropping Spanish colonial architecture and a history of being one of the most lucrative silver-mining regions of the 16th century. Guanajuato is where Maria Romero is from, co-owner of Reyes Market. Along with her husband, Salvador, the Romeros have owned the Carpinteria Avenue store and restaurant for 26 years. We sat at an outside table on the patio, conversing through face masks on a warm afternoon. A few people drifted into the market while a couple finished a meal on the other side. I asked what kind of food Guanajuato is known for. For example, Baja, Mexico, has fresh and simple cuisine, featuring lots of seafood. What about Maria’s hometown? “It’s spicy. More like comfort food.” When Maria and Salvador bought the business over two decades ago from Diane Reyes, it was a lot smaller, and food-to-order wasn’t available. So, over the years, the Romeros expanded the shop to include more grocery items and a menu for patrons to enjoy a sit-down feast. Maria said she and her husband worked well together, decided a long time ago to divide up the business responsibilities—while Salvador handled the market, Maria took charge of the kitchen. “We started doing recipes like my mom and grandma used to make,” Maria said. The chilaquiles are her favorite. A classic Mexican dish of corn tortillas cut in quarters and lightly fried, topped with green salsa and can include crumbled queso

At Reyes Market on Carpinteria Avenue, locals know they can get traditional Mexican food from Guanajuato, based on co-owner Maria Romero’s hometown recipes. fresco, fried or scrambled eggs, and a side of rice and beans. Meat, if you choose. “But everything’s good,” Maria said. I asked about the best business advice they’ve received, and without hesitation, she said, pay your bills. “Pay your invoices first. Don’t let them go for 30, 40 or 60 days.” She said the previous owners had taught her that trick. “They said, always pay your bills. That way, you’ve always got your supplies covered.” The Reyes family owned the market before the Romeros, placing the business’ start

in 1956. To withstand time, both families have stayed consistent in doing things right. Which brings us to the key to their success: “We treat everybody the same,” Maria said. “It doesn’t matter what social bracket you’re in. If you have money or don’t have money, our service is the same.” I took a quick scan of a few patrons around the market. It seemed to be a mix of Montecitans in pressed shirts and neatly worn hats, field workers just off of work and moms with kids. Reyes had that “come as you are” feel to it. No pretension. Just good food and good people. Their trade secret is something we’ve heard from many businesses in the food industry before: consistency is vital. “Just do good food and take your time with it. Constantly check on everything. The way the food is cooked, the recipe. Make sure it’s consistent.” If Maria could give her and her husband one piece of advice to their younger selves, it would be to slow down and not take everything on them-

selves. “Don’t try to do it because you can. Eventually, it will catch up with you, and you will get burned out.” She admits the couple worked in the business seven days a week since they opened until just three years ago when they decided to close on Sundays to have a break. “We take one day off to regenerate.” So what’s the future of Reyes Market? “That’s the million-dollar question,” Maria said. “With everything changing, we just do one day at a time right now.” When I asked if there’s anything she’d like to add, Maria looked off to the middle distance before speaking again. “God has been good to us. I think that’s key. That He placed us here for a reason.” Reyes Market is located at 4795 Carpinteria Ave. Megan Waldrep is a columnist and freelance writer, currently living on a 34-foot sailboat.

Thousands of Skin Conditions. One Solution.

A Blue Star Symbol will be installed on Highway 101 between Santa Claus and Padaro lanes for the Memorial Oaks section commemorating World War I service.

Over 100 oaks will don Padaro Lane in WWI memorial


After WWI, throughout California, memorials were erected to honor veterans. In Carpinteria, veterans were memorialized by planting six dozen coast live oak tree saplings near Serena Park, on both sides of what was, at the time, a two-lane highway. But sometime in the 1950s, the freeway was widened, and only the oaks on the southbound side were preserved. Over the years, some of the plaques identifying the “memorial oaks” were also removed, and today, less than half of the original oaks (34), now mature trees, remain. With the Highway 101 projects approaching their start date to begin work on the Padaro Lane segment of the freeway—which will impact the current memorial trees—the question of how to continue to memorialize WWI veterans has come front and center. In anticipation of adding a third lane to Highway 101 in each direction, Caltrans and SBCAG created a community focus group to determine how to minimize impacts of highway construction to the memorial and, moreover, to reestablish the prominence of the memorial. The focus group included members of Carpinteria Valley Historical Museum, Carpinteria Veterans Group, Carpinteria Valley Association, and county Planning & Public Works, Historic Landmarks Association, SBCAG and Caltrans. In considering the health and viability of the remaining oaks, an outside arborist evaluated the trees and stated that they would have less than a 35% survival rate, limiting the likelihood that they could

be replanted and continue to thrive, said Kirsten Ayars, a consultant for the Highway 101 project. Given the poor health of the trees, the group decided that Caltrans should grow new oak trees from acorns collected from the original memorial oaks, reestablishing the memorial oak area, from Serena Park to Loon Point, and continuing the spirit and heritage of the original monument. Currently, 108 new oak trees are being grown from acorns from the original memorial oaks. The new oaks will be planted on both sides of the freeway and the remaining oaks along the southbound highway will also be preserved. The safety barrier between Loon Point and Serena Park will have a concrete memorial ribbon displaying oak tree leaves along with plaques. The project also includes memorial signage at points where the public can stop and read along Loon Point/Serena Park. “It’s been forgotten over the years, so it’s nice to bring it back,” noted Ayars. Earlier this year, the memorial oaks project received permitting through the county of Santa Barbara. It will be installed as part of the multimodal highway construction project through the Padaro Lane neighborhood, expected to commence next summer and to be completed in 2024.

Meet the new parks & facilities supervisor

The city of Carpinteria has a new parks and facilities supervisor. Tiffany Smith joins the city of Carpinteria staff after serving for many years as the grounds supervisor at Moorpark Unified School District. In her new role, Smith will oversee the maintenance of the city’s many parks and facilities, including the Community Pool, Veterans Memorial Hall, City Hall, City Beaches, Carpinteria Bluffs Preserve and Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park. Smith grew up in Ojai with a father who worked as a parks manager, and she has gravitated toward horticultural and arborist work most of her life. Native plants and habitat restoration are of special interest to Smith, and she looks forward to drawing the public’s attention to these thoughtful elements within the city’s parks system. “It’s my passion. I love it,” she said of working with plants. In her first weeks on the job, Smith helped to remove a hornet’s nest from El Carro Park, investigated a rattlesnake sighting at the Bluffs, and cleaned and reopened city parks after many months of Covid-19 closure. She also said she’ll put her getit-done approach to good use in her new job and looks forward to enhancing the city’s already beautiful parks system.

Autumn harvest brings fall colors to Garden Park PHOTOS BY DEBRA HERRICK

Bursting with fall’s bounty, the city of Carpinteria’s Community Garden Park continues to provide sustainable food and a space for health and wellness throughout the late summer and fall months. This week, we take a look at the 5th Street oasis’ variety of vegetables and flowers that are attracting pollinators and garden plotters alike to enjoy what’s growing in the garden.

Garden Coordinator Alena Steen checks in on a winged bean, whose shoots and leaves are edible, as well as the immature pod.

Hearty kale grows plentifully under California’s sun.

A pumpkin reaches mature size just in time for Halloween.

Sweet green bell peppers spiral in their plot.

Acorn Squash Panna Cotta canned pumpkin puree for the squash. At The Food Liaison, I usually always have a rotating flavored panna cotta in the pastry case. I have one customer that gets one almost daily… I won’t mention names. Enjoy this dessert along with your fall festivities!


1 cup heavy whipping cream 2 T Maple syrup Fresh grated nutmeg (optional) Whip cream until medium to stiff peaks form. Add maple syrup and whisk a little more until syrup is incorporated.

Acorn Squash Panna Cotta

Yields six, 6 ounce ramekins or glasses

Roasted Squash

Assembly: Pull out chilled panna cottas and dollop the maple whipped cream over the top. Dust with nutmeg and enjoy.

1 small acorn squash 1 T canola oil Pinch of Salt

Roast Squash

Panna Cotta:

2 ½ cup cream 1 envelope or about 1 T powdered gelatin 2 T cold water ⅓ cup sugar 1 T maple syrup 1 t cinnamon ½ t nutmeg ½ t salt Pinch clove Pinch cardamom 1 cup roasted acorn squash 1 cup heavy whipping cream 2 T maple syrup

Equipment needed: whisk, saucepan, small bowl, rubber spatula, fine mesh strainer, baking pan, blender, six 6-ounce ramekins or glasses.

Panna Cotta

In a small bowl or ramekin add two tablespoons cold water and sprinkle the gelatin over the top. Let the gelatin soften for a couple of minutes. In a saucepan bring cream, maple syrup, spices, and salt to a rolling boil. Turn off the heat and whisk in gelatin mixture until dissolved. Place reserved acorn squash in a blender and pour your hot






Maple Whipped Cream

Preheat the oven to 350°F and cut squash in half horizontally. Scrape out the seeds with a metal spoon and drizzle the flesh with vegetable oil and sprinkle with salt. Place squash face down on baking pan and roast for 30 to 45 minutes or until soft to the touch. Cool the squash, then peel and discard the skin. Measure out 1 cup of the roasted squash and set aside.

Chef Heather grew up in upstate New York. She followed her dream of living in Southern California and received her certificate in Culinary Arts at SBCC. She has worked at many places coast to coast, including Eleven Madison Park in New York City, and earned the Executive Pastry Chef title at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. She currently is head of the pastry program at The Food Liaison in Carpinteria and has gained a loyal following from near and far. She is passionate about bringing people joy with her delicious desserts.





With Halloween and Thanksgiving in the air, I decided to give you a taste of fall. One of my hardest tradeoffs to live in paradise year-round is giving up the New England autumn. There is nothing like seeing cascading mountains of color-changing trees whose leaves will quickly fall to the ground. Crisp air, apple picking, fresh donuts and hot apple cider are some of my fondest childhood memories in upstate New York. During the season, my mother used to make us roasted acorn squash brimming with butter, maple syrup and spices. The delicious aroma filled the house and the squash tasted so sweet that it made me feel like we were eating dessert with our dinner. This is what inspired me to create and share my Acorn Squash Panna Cotta recipe. Panna cotta is Italian for “cooked cream” and sounds more intimidating than it actually is. The custard is cooked on the stove top versus baked in an oven, which makes this method very approachable. This dessert is gluten-free and a wonderful, easy way to entertain your friends. If you want to make this recipe even more effortless feel free to substitute

Students from Howard School preschool and pre-K kicked off their week with a nature walk to collect autumn acorns. The school tries to incorporate kinesthetic and tactile learning to give students the opportunity for a deeper learning experience, said Anita Betancourt, Howard School admissions director. Students sang and danced as they learned about the uses of acorns, learned how to identify their parts, as well as the life cycle of a common acorn.

Property tax rolls shows possible increase in school funds 2Compete program for CUSD students. Additionally, CEF will donate $10,000 for personal recess equipment for each CUSD elementary student.


Measure U


This year, there were some concerns regarding the Carpinteria Unified School District Adopted Budget. Normally, the budget is approved by July 1, which is a few months before the county of Santa Barbara releases its property tax roll collection estimates in October. The CUSD 2020-21 Adopted Budget included estimated property taxes based on the best assumptions known at the time, along with historical trend analysis. The preparation of the 2020-21 assumptions were exceptionally difficult due to pandemic and the unknown effects on homeowner’s inability to make timely payments and if it would be repealed by the county. On Oct. 13, the county of Santa Barbara released their property tax roll estimates. CUSD estimated property taxes are 5.84% higher than 2019-20. The increase is, in part, due to a single home sale earlier in 2020 of over $23 million. This increase was reflected in the October budget update, and increased the budgeted property tax revenue by $785,106 for 2020-21. This increase in turn, will increase the multi-year assumptions for 2021-22 and 2022-23, also reflected in the October budget update.

The CARES Act—Learning Loss Mitigation Funds

CUSD received a total of $2,249,152 from both federal and state sources. The district has spent and encumbered $1,891,839 to date, leaving $357,313 left to spend. All expenditures must be related to Covid-19 responses to distance learning, school safety, learning loss, mental health/counseling/health services, professional development, additional instructional supports and food services.

CEF will partner with CUSD and Santa Barbara County Education Office to provide computers for families and to secure monthly internet access through the Cox Connect-

The modernization of the old CHS administration building which will house the new CHS Student Success Center is expecting its completion by the end of October. Modernization for the gym began July 1 and is currently about 48% completed. It is anticipated to be completed on time in February 2021. The Measure U team has submitted the revised Summerland preliminary concept review to the county Board of Architectural Review (BAR) and received preliminary concept approval on Oct. 2, subject to some minor changes. There will be one more meeting with the BAR in November to get final approval. The project will then be submitted to the Planning Commission which is the

entity that approves the Coastal Development permit. In addition, the architects are designing detailed plans in preparation for submission to the Division of State Architects to secure approval for construction by the summer. Summerland students and staff will be relocated to the former Main School campus for the 21-22 school year.

Carpinteria Middle and High schools are providing in person instruction to small cohorts of special education and underperforming students. They will be following the CDPH Guidance on Schools and School Based Program with social distancing measures, face masks, cleaning, health screening of students and provide staff with Covid-19 testing.

Small cohorts at CMS, CHS
