This week, Carpinteria declared a local state of emergency amidst a growing public health crisis and economic shutdown that has seized the community and the world at large. Carpinteria’s flower industry has been crippled by market closures, shipping suspensions and cancelled orders, leading growers along Carpinteria’s agricultural foothills to donate and destroy hundreds of thousands of flowers. Pictured is Hilltop Flowers’ employee Trino Juarez plowing down rows of Gypsy Dianthus to be mulched back into the soil. Read more on page 17.

Carpinteria schools closed indefinitely

By DeBra Herrick

Carpinteria schools will likely remain closed for the rest of the academic year, according to Carpinteria Unified School District (CUSD) Superintendent Diana Rigby. On Thursday evening, March 19, Rigby posted a letter to ParentSquare, CUSD’s message board, informing parents that schools will not reopen on March 27, as initially indicated, and might not reopen at all before summer break. Rigby’s announcement followed California Governor Gavin Newsom’s statement given Wednesday night that he anticipated few schools would reopen in the coming weeks. “This is a very sobering thing to say,” said Newsom, “I don’t anticipate schools are going to open up in a week… It’s unlikely that many of these schools—few if any—will open before the summer break. Boy, I hope I’m wrong, but I believe that to be the case.” CUSD serves 2,100 students, with 60 percent—1,200 children—receiving free

or reduced-price lunches. Across the state, California has over 10,000 public schools that serve 6.2 million students, all facing the same dilemma as CUSD. “I am so sorry that the disruption of the school closure has created many uncertainties and issues for you and your family,” wrote Rigby, as she informed CUSD parents of the indefinite closures. “We are all working hard to adapt to this emergency situation… the health and safety of our school communities remain

our top priority… CUSD will remain closed until state and local authorities determine when we can return.” This week, while schools were closed, Carpinteria High School launched a remote curriculum for students utilizing school-issued computers. Rigby stated that all students, preschool through grade 12 will be given a remote learning program commencing the week after spring break. The proposal is ambitious, since many students—particularly in the lower

Support for community is a top priority

In today’s challenging times, Edward Jones financial advisors are thinking about the health of their clients, their families and their colleagues, what’s happening in their communities and the effect of Covid-19 on the markets. “Most importantly, we want everyone to know we’re taking steps to protect the health and well-being of our clients, associates, families and communities,” Samantha Anderson says. “We’re right here in the community with you, going through this together as neighbors and friends. And we will get through this together.” To help reduce the impact of the coronavirus, financial advisors are taking several steps, including suspending face-to-face visits with clients, holding virtual meetings and training sessions and ensuring office spaces are sanitized and disinfected. “Like everyone, we really have to do our part to help mitigate this crisis,” Anderson says. “But since our entire reason for being in business is to help our clients enjoy more rewarding lives, we feel that our efforts now are just an extension of that.” Of course, people’s financial situations also weigh on their minds, Anderson says. “The current market selloff is certainly concerning, but it seems to be driven more by fear and panic than by economic or financial reality,” Anderson says. Monetary and fiscal policy are necessary, but at the end of the day, it will be the medical progress that will dictate the timeline for reducing market volatility and the ultimate rebound in stocks, Anderson says. Anderson said Edward Jones expects daily volatility to persist until new virus cases begin to slow, but added that investors should find optimism in these facts: unemployment is near a 50-year low, with solid wage growth; there’s been an uptick in the housing market, which may accelerate due to declining mortgage rates; and the Federal Reserve has cut short-term interest rates back near 0 percent. Furthermore, Anderson says, the drop in investment prices may indicate that the financial markets have already “priced in” the likelihood of a short-term recession. “This could mean that we’ve already endured much of the stock market pain,” Anderson says. “And even a short recession is of concern to all of us, since it’s likely to bring at least a temporary disruption to an otherwise strong labor market.”

For investors wondering what to do now, Anderson offers these suggestions: First, remember why you’re investing. “With the market decline, people will be tempted to change their investment strategies,” Anderson says. “But they need to keep in mind that most of their financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement, are long-term in nature - a lot longer-term than the shelf life of the coronavirus. If investors have established a long-term strategy that’s appropriate for their needs, they should stick with it, no matter what today’s headlines are.” However, Anderson does suggest that individuals who are particularly concerned over the current results of their investment statements might want to evaluate their risk tolerance. “If you are truly losing sleep over what’s going on in the markets, it’s possible your portfolio is positioned too aggressively for the amount of risk with which you’re comfortable,” Anderson says. “In that case, you should work with your financial advisor to see if you need to adjust your investment mix to include more fixed-income securities, which can provide some downside protection, but you’ll be making a trade-off, because you’ll also be affecting your long-term growth potential.” Finally, Anderson says, now might actually be a good time for investors to consider actually adding to their portfolios. “Right now, many stocks are at their best values in more than a decade,” Anderson says. “If you need to rebalance your portfolio, this could be a time to do so.” Ultimately, Anderson says, investors need to realize that, while we are in somewhat uncharted times, the temptation to panic should be fought. “All our emotions are running high right now,” Anderson says. “And while everyone’s top priority should be to protect themselves, their families and their communities, it’s still important not to lose sight of their financial well-being. And for that, the best thing all of us can do is look past short-term downturns and maintain the discipline to keep investing in all types of markets.” Edward Jones, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in St. Louis, provides financial services in the U.S. and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Every aspect of the firm’s business, from the investments its financial advisors offer to the location of its branch offices, caters to individual investors. The firm’s 18,000-plus financial advisors serve more than 7 million clients and care for $1 trillion in assets under management.

grades where in-person classes are almost the universal norm—will need to be given access to the internet and computers, along with training for online education. Teachers will also have to adjust quickly to teaching virtually. “We have dedicated teachers, administrators and staff who will work hard to ensure that all students have access to computers at home and the internet, and will be able to participate in online learning,” said Rigby, noting that school principals would be reaching out to parents with details on how to receive home laptops and internet access. For primary students in preschool through second grade, work paper packets will be given out at school sites. Standardized testing has been canceled for 2019-20, stated Rigby, who also informed parents that the high school principal would be updating students and families on College Board exams such as the AP, SAT and ACT. Parents with students in the special education program will be contacted by Karla Curry, CUSD director of special education. When school is in session, free lunches will be provided in a drive-through protocol at Aliso and Canalino Elementary schools from noon to 1 p.m.

Area seniors and caregivers take extra precautions By Christian Beamish

In partnership with

A particularly cruel aspect of the COVID-19 virus is the threat it poses to seniors, some of society’s most-vulnerable people. Shelter-in-place orders and mandates to maintain social distancing present their own challenges to those who can become isolated in even “normal” times, to say nothing of being in the midst of a global pandemic. It is also the responsibility of everyone in the community to maintain social distancing, as even healthy young people and extended family members can be carriers of the disease while being completely asymptomatic themselves. Organizations dedicated to senior care in and around Carpinteria are mobilizing best practices not only to keep the elderly safe from infection, but also to provide some level of social interaction as well. The Community Action Commission operates a 2-1-1 help phone line that seniors can call for resources in this time. County residents can also call CAC’s Senior Nutrition program hotline Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to inquire about the senior meal service. For those meal sites that are closed, seniors can arrange for home delivery. In South County, dial (805) 964-8857 ext. #1140. Senior meal center addresses with maps can be found online at cacsb.org/senior. The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County also encourages seniors who need food assistance (everyone is eligible, regardless of income level or immigration status) to arrange free home food delivery by calling (805) 967-5741. At GranVida Senior and Memory Care Center in Carpinteria, Regional Vice President Sonya Buchanan said of recent weeks, “It’s been a whirlwind.” She added that the facility had plans in place for a natural disaster, and that they have been able to pivot their response to meet the challenges of the pandemic for the 62 residents in their care. “We have responded to the CDC recommendations,” Buchanan said. GranVida has had no confirmed cases of COVID-19. The biggest challenge for residents, Buchanan said, is that “they’re used to gathering every day.” All group activities have been cancelled, but residents are keeping in touch with friends and family electronically. “Residents are responding really well,” Buchanan said, and added that staff have made a great effort to keep a calm atmosphere within the facility. For Susee Smith-Youngs, a senior (although she’s lively as can be, and does not disclose her age) who lives alone on Foothill Road, the pandemic brings a double challenge. There is the fear of the sickness itself, but also the impact on her custom interior sewing business, Fabric Dimensions, that she runs from a studio in her back yard, and her second stream of income from the co-op she is a member of at Homestead Antiques on Linden Avenue. “It’s scary,” Smith-Youngs shared, “business has slowed-down, and this is pretty scary for seniors who are still working.” Although her son has checkedin on her and brought her groceries, he is in fire-fighting training in Orange County

The Community Action Commission operates a 2-1-1 help phone line that seniors can call for resources in this time. and Smith-Youngs has had to venture out to the drug store and the supermarket on her own. “The lady there (at the drug store) is really good—she wipes down the counter and credit-card machine,” she said. At the supermarket, Smith-Youngs re-purposed plastic vegetable bags for gloves. And for her cat, dog and chickens, she’s been ordering online. Having to hold-off on her significant volunteer efforts has perhaps been the biggest challenge for Smith-Youngs, who has been in business in Carpinteria for 40-years. She has volunteered at the Sealwatch for nearly 25-years, and at the Carpinteria Arts Center and St. Joseph’s Thrift Store as well. “The other end of being elderly,” she said of herself and others in her age group, “is the children who don’t get to see them.” Mike and Elise Winneguth are fortunate to have each other, and have been weathering the stay-at-home order by working on the house and playing cards and Scrabble, although Mike says “we miss swimming in our community pool,” which has closed due to the pandemic. Keeping in contact with friends and family via phone and computer, the Winneguths are bearing-up, although like Smith-Youngs, Elise has had to scale back her significant volunteer efforts at both Canalino Elementary, where she worked five-days a week, and at St. Joseph’s Thrift Store. The Los Angeles Times reports that the worst is yet to come in the pandemic, and Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti said the city should “be prepared for a couple months like this.” As of press time Wednesday, March 25, the state of California reported 2,643 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 55 deaths from the disease. In response to President Trump’s estimation that stay-at-home orders will be lifted by Easter, on Sunday, April 12, California Governor Gavin Newsom said, “April for California would be sooner than any of the experts that I talked to believe is possible.”

Rotary Club of Carpinteria Sunset Charitable Foundation officially launched 93013 Fund with $20,000 in seed money from CARP Growers. To commemorate the donation with proper social distancing, Sunset Rotary representatives Gerry Lamberti, Stefanie Herrington, Lorraine McIntire and Hans Brand gathered to receive the big check from CARP Growers President Graham Farrar.

Carpinteria Rotary Sunset launches “93013 Fund” amidst COVID-19 crisis

Local demand for relief will only grow in the coming weeks and months as the COVID-19 disruption displaces workers, causes food insecurity and leaves families and organizations short on funding to sustain our community. To guarantee that funds raised in the community stay in the community, Rotary Club of Carpinteria Sunset Charitable Foundation has created the 93013 Fund as a central point to collect and distribute funding. “This fund will serve as a necessary bridge during this unprecedented economic disruption,” said Hans Brand, president of Carpinteria Sunset Rotary Charitable Foundation. “We need to be prepared to sustain Food Banks and services at the local level possibly for months. Over the last week, more and more people have stepped up in search of a way to contribute, so 93013 Fund has been set up to collect and disburse funds in a local, transparent way. People want to help in the community, and this is how to do it.” Carpinteria Sunset Rotary Charitable Foundation is a registered 501c3 nonprofit. A dedicated bank account has been created for 93013 Fund, and the fund will be controlled by the foundation’s Board

Box 1211, Carpinteria 93014 of Directors. An oversight committee of nonprofit directors, business owners and community leaders will be assembled to provide guidance on 93013 Fund disbursements. Santa Barbara County Foodbank programs in Carpinteria already demonstrated heightened demand during an emergency food distribution on March 18. The 93013 Fund will be a central place for donors to ensure programs like the Foodbank and its partners can continue this important work of improving food security and maintaining hope during challenging times. To start the fund, CARP Growers,

the local cannabis farmers group, has pledged $20,000 and encourages other capable local businesses, organizations and individuals to match or exceed this amount as a symbol of community resilience and support. At 93013fund.org, any level of donation will be accepted through an easy “click and give” platform. “Local families and workers are already facing an unprecedented employment, childcare and food security crisis,” said Graham Farrar, president of CARP Growers. “From community partners, we’ve heard so many uplifting stories of early action to keep kids fed. As the

COVID-19 disruption wears on, it will be critical to maintain a central fund to sustain relief and to have it be managed locally by the people who are already on the front lines providing assistance.” Funds will be used to sustain established services and networks through local service organizations like Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, Carpinteria Children’s Project, Carpinteria Boys & Girls Club, Carpinteria Unified School District and Community Action Commission. “We are not here to reinvent how to serve the community,” Brand said. “We have set up this fund so people can easily contribute to groups already providing services and a representative Advisory Committee can prioritize spending that will reach as many local families as possible.” Sunset Rotary Foundation has identified youth-serving organizations, food and housing insecurity as the primary targets for the 93013 Fund. Every penny of the fund will be disbursed to eligible recipients with no administrative costs. It will also all be spent on groups within the Carpinteria Valley. A primary goal of the fund will be to use local businesses when applicable to facilitate services.

Joint relief fund pledges $1 million

The Santa Barbara Foundation, United Way of Santa Barbara County, and the Hutton Parker Foundation are leading a countywide funders’ collaborative with members of the Foundation Roundtable. This COVID-19 Joint Response Effort for Santa Barbara County will provide over $1 million in assistance to individuals and families as well as organizations actively assisting members of the community affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “The full extent of the impact this pandemic will have on our community remains to be seen; however, it is clear already that the needs of our community members and the organizations serving them will be substantial,” said Steve Ortiz, president and CEO, United Way of Santa Barbara County. The Joint Response Effort will align and coordinate efforts, collect and share information, and distribute financial resources

on a rolling basis. Together, they will mobilize funds to rapidly meet community needs. Nonprofits can submit applications through the collaborative COVID-19 Nonprofit Grant Intake packet (preferred method) and/or to individual funders through their application processes. Funding selections will prioritize the following: Individual financial need to help struggling community members secure and maintain basic needs, cover unexpected childcare and education expenses, and recover from loss of wages due to business closures and social distancing measures. Meeting increased service demand for organizations serving Santa Barbara County’s most vulnerable populations impacted by widespread shutdown of schools and childcare facilities, and social distancing measures impacting places of employment. Operational capacity and business

continuity to provide unrestricted funding for organizations to carry out their missions and adjust business models to meet the needs of their staff and clients. “With leadership from the Santa Barbara Foundation and the United Way of Santa Barbara County, the local foundation community has joined forces and combined resources to respond to many of the nonprofit sector’s critical and immediate needs. It is imperative,

at this time, for funders to be working in collaborative nature to not only address immediate needs, but to also plan for the future,” said Tom Parker, President of the Hutton Parker Foundation.

It’s official: Carpinteria declares local emergency By DeBra HerriCk Carpinteria’s City Council voted unanimously to ratify a proclamation of local emergency for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on Monday, March 23. The council met under conditions of social distancing, with only councilmembers and essential staff permitted in the chamber, and six feet of distance between each person. Councilman Al Clark participated remotely, along with one member of the public who provided comments by phone. The emergency proclamation will allow the city to utilize all resources necessary to respond to COVID-19 and to receive state and federal assistance funds for response and recovery, according to City Manager David Durflinger, who is also acting director of emergency services. “Lower income families, the elderly and small businesses will be the most vulnerable and the hardest hit,” said Durflinger. “There is an urgent need for assistance.” Since March 2, the city has been expending resources and incurring costs in its response to COVID-19. To cover these costs, Durflinger stated that the city would be pursuing state and federal support and is deprioritizing some activities. Durflinger also noted that the state campgrounds have been closed but dayuse parks are open. Looking towards helping small businesses stay afloat and recover, Councilmember Roy Lee suggested that city fees for businesses could be suspended, such as the one required for “Downtown Business Improvement.” Councilmember Gregg Carty asked about the city’s plan to care for the homeless. Durflinger responded that the nonprofit Home for Good had redoubled their efforts. He also mentioned the services provided by Freedom Warming Centers, although these have been suspended because of the pandemic. No specific plan was stated for the city’s unhoused population.

Law enforcement

Lieutenant Butch Arnoldi reviewed the key concepts that his deputies would be adhering to during the local emergency.

He noted flexibility and adaptation during an ever-changing situation. He also stated that law enforcement “must be a stabilizing influence in the community … educated … and must help alleviate the community’s concerns regarding safety and security.” Arnoldi also emphasized that the Sheriff’s Office would “maintain visibility,” with patrol officers spending increased time on the streets and less in the station. Following recommendations from California’s Department of Public Health, police officers will be selective in making arrests to minimize the number of people in jails, which can be hotbeds for spreading the infection. “Don’t worry though,” said Arnoldi, “The proper people who need to go to jail will go to jail.” In terms of people breaking the governor’s “Stay-at-Home” Order, Arnoldi said arrest and citation will be the last resort to enforce compliance. “Hopefully we get through this together by working together,” said Arnoldi.

In this time of unprecedented school closures and swift changes, Carpinteria Unified School District is challenged to continue the education and support for our students and families. On March 13, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order ensuring California public school districts retain state funding even in the event of physical closure. The order also provides that school districts must: continue delivering highquality educational opportunities to students through remote (online) learning and independent study; safely provide school meals; to the extent practicable, arrange for supervision for students during ordinary school hours; and continue to pay employees. “Closing schools has a massive, cascading effect for our kids and their families—especially those least equipped financially to deal with them. The needs of California kids must be met regardless of whether their school is open or closed. School districts that choose to close must use state educational dollars to quickly meet the needs of children and families. The state of California is working around the clock to help those districts and provide best practices to ensure no kid is left behind.” CUSD administrators, teachers and staff are working together to rapidly transition from classroom to online instruction at home during the extended school closures. Clearly, remote learning cannot replace daily classroom/school experiences, however, students and families will benefit from ongoing learning and connections with teachers and classmates. Not all teachers are experienced with online instructional tools and resources, and they will need time to develop their proficiency with remote learning. One of our biggest challenges though is that 56 percent of our families are socioeconomically disadvantaged and lack computers and internet access at home. At Carpinteria High School, each student was issued a district laptop for school/home use. At the SEALS Special

“Clearly, remote learning cannot replace daily classroom/school experiences, however, students and families will benefit from ongoing learning and connections with teachers and classmates.”

Education Program, Carpinteria Middle School, and the elementary schools, we will be distributing classroom laptops to families who need them. We purchased 500 additional laptops as well as WiFi hotspots for families without access to the internet. These are “extraordinary costs” associated with the pandemic and school closures, and we are spending reserves to provide remote learning. We are grateful for our partners, Carpinteria Education Foundation and Chevron, who are donating funds towards these costs. To ensure equitable remote learning opportunities for all students, including Special Education and English Language Learners, CUSD administrators and teachers are using a variety of online platforms including Google Applications for Education, video conferencing, E-Books, virtual bulletin boards, virtual field trips, chrome extensions, animal live cams, Khan Academy and district software. A list of resources may be found at the California Department of Education cde. ca.gov/ls/he/hn/coronavirus.asp. Virtual counseling and speech therapy are also provided for those students with special needs. In addition to remote learning, CUSD administrators and cafeteria leaders are providing daily “grab ‘n’ go” curbside sack lunches at Aliso and Canalino, 12-1 p.m., during the school closures. We will continue to support students and families during this stressful and challenging time while ensuring the safety and well-being of our students and employees. CUSD stands ready to serve our educational community. 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.

Governor orders businesses to close, residents to stay home on March 20 On Thursday, March 20, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a statewide order for all California residents to shelter in place, effective immediately. Gas stations, pharmacies, banks and laundromat/laundry services will remain open throughout the order, along with any operations related to critical infrastructure sectors which include road workers, health professionals, government program and services administrators and law enforcement officers, among other essential services. Businesses that focus on providing food will also remain open, including, grocery stores, farmers markets, food banks, convenience stores, and takeout and delivery restaurants. The order states that individuals working in “critical infrastructure sectors,” as defined by the federal government, may continue work. All dine-in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, entertainment venues, gyms

and fitness studios, public events and gatherings, and convention centers are to close immediately. Currently, Santa Barbara County has nine confirmed cases of COVID-19, with five of the cases in North County, three in South County, and one case location unreleased. In a statement from Supervisor Das Williams in response to the governor’s order, he directed the public to California’s Employment Development Department website, edd.ca.gov, for information on support services for businesses and employees affected economically by COVID-19. Williams also reiterated the county’s directive for people 65 and older to self-isolate completely, recommending that seniors either ask a friend/family member to shop for them or use a grocery delivery service. Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is offering brown bag delivery services of free produce and sundries for seniors. For more information, visit foodbanksbc.org.

Homelessness during a pandemic

By Kathy hayes, Director, FreeDom Warming centers We can’t possibly know why some people are homeless and living on the streets; their stories are varied, complex and heartbreaking. What we do know is these individuals need and deserve the opportunity to access services and resources that can support their immediate day-to-day needs and long-term goals. The 2020 federally mandated Point in Time count found 1,897 homeless people living in Santa Barbara County, an overall 5 percent increase compared to the 2019 count. Communities like Carpinteria experienced a significant increase, up from 21 homeless individuals in 2019, to 39 individuals in 2020. These should be unacceptable numbers at every level. Today, as communities grapple with COVID-19, homeless people can be at a much greater risk of infection and complications from the infection. Many of these individuals lack access to basic things like soap and water for handwashing that can help prevent illness and the spread of illness. For 10 years, the Freedom Warming Centers has been the only overnight, winter emergency shelter for homeless individuals in Carpinteria and the rest of the county. As a low-barrier shelter, you will not find someone standing at the check-in desk with a clipboard in hand asking a guest when they had their last drink. Instead, if someone is hungry, we feed them; if they are cold and tired, we give them a warm place to sleep. The Freedom Warming Centers is not the solution to the problem of homelessness; our hope is to save lives while larger systemic change is accomplished. Where we are today: after weighing all the COVID-19 scientific evidence and based on the strong advice from local medical doctors who serve the homeless, the warming centers made the difficult decision to suspend our services twoweeks earlier than we normally would. We can activate (open) with rain, flood, fire and mud, but we cannot keep vulnerable people close together at a warming center activation while the COVID-19 virus is active among us. It is a crisis of a totally different nature, and the Freedom Warming Centers are not the appropriate solution to this particular problem.

What we can do is challenge ourselves, our communities and implore government officials to make changes that will keep the Freedom Warming Centers and the homeless individuals living in Carpinteria accessing warming center services from being put into this situation again. We are all struggling with what to do during this moment, and there are so many unanswered questions. What we can do is challenge ourselves, our communities, and implore government officials to make changes that will keep the Freedom Warming Centers and the homeless individuals living in Carpinteria accessing warming center services from being put into this situation again. We will be back this fall and begin our next activation season. In the meantime, we’d like to thank everyone in Carpinteria for their support. Thank you to the amazing warming center staff, Carpinteria Community Church and Pastor Jarrett, the city of Carpinteria, and the best volunteers anywhere. We couldn’t do any of this without you.

Kathy Hayes is the director of Freedom Warming Centers of Santa Barbara County.

Sheriff’s Office to enforce “Stay at Home” Order Santa Barbara County law enforcement is unified in their goal of maintaining peace and order throughout the county as they support public health authorities in efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, stated Sheriff Bill Brown in a letter signed on behalf of the members of the Santa Barbara County Law Enforcement Chiefs Association. Brown reiterated the Public Health Order issued on March 19 by the state public health officer, requiring all people living in California to stay home or at their place of residence until further notice. “It is imperative that our agencies maintain a unified approach in enforcing this important order that has been issued for the safety and well-being of those who live and work in the communities we serve,” wrote Brown. “We have great concern and empathy for those who are

experiencing frustration, financial loss, heightened anxiety and fear during these troubling times.” Although the public health order can be enforced through citations or arrests if violated, the sheriff noted that law enforcement chiefs are “encouraging our personnel to educate the public and exercise discretion in obtaining voluntary compliance. Our enforcement posture with members of our communities will be one of collaboration and the encouragement of voluntary compliance whenever possible.” Fighting crime will also continue to be a priority for law enforcement. “Make no mistake, however,” stated Brown, “in understanding that we will be steadfast and diligent in seeking out and bringing to justice criminal offenders who attempt to take advantage of this situation.”

Coping through the coronavirus crisis, psychologically

By DR. JoRDAn Witt

Like all healthcare professionals, members of the Santa Barbara County Psychological Association have been continuing to provide services to their clients and the community during this unprecedented time of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This has been a strange and worrying time for everyone, which has impacted every aspect of our lives, including our mental health. We are facing a situation with higher potential disruption and strain on all our resources than has been seen in most of our lifetimes. The risk is significant especially to the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions, and emotional risks are higher for those with anxiety or depression already. It is normal for all of us to feel stressed, irritable, frustrated or impatient at this time. As psychologists, though, we try to reduce unnecessary anxieties by pointing out that danger may be easily distorted in our minds, and that decisions or reactions made while feeling panicky are unlikely to be helpful, even when there is some real risk around us. For example, it is important to keep in mind that when people follow precautions and stay at home, the risk of disease drops significantly. Try to keep in mind that this is a time-limited situation and we will come out the other side. Of course, we know that following rules related to social distancing and hygiene are the essential “things to do” at this time for your health. In terms of mental health, there are several other things that may be of benefit to keep in mind and practice on a daily basis. Remember that we get a chance to practice our best selves at this time, by being flexible, compassionate and creative. Things to keep in mind include: • Remember that both mental and physical wellness are based on staying healthy. Make a commitment to daily exercise and eating a healthy diet, even when you are bored, anxious or unable to have your typical routine (e.g., going to a gym). • One benefit of being in this area is that we can continue to spend time in nature/outdoors year-round, and that we can still do this despite the virus! Getting sunshine, fresh air and interacting with nature through hikes or beach walks are likely to enhance well-being and improve both emotional and immune system health. • Practice meditation, yoga or other mindfulness activities. • Try to limit exposure to news throughout the day, and only engage in reliable news sources that focus on facts and not opinion. Consider other activities or practices you’ve wanted to do in the past but haven’t had time for. This may include

learning something new online, completing continuing education or training for work, or developing skills in the arts, music or writing. • Communicate with loved ones often by any means you can beyond email/ texting (including telephone, facetime, Skype/Zoom). Seek out anyone you know with wisdom and experience to help give perspective. This will help lower stress and help with coping. • Assess your finances, take appropriate steps to plan for gaps in income, and try to remain flexible in ideas and planning. • For children and teens, concerns related to the virus should be communicated in an age appropriate fashion. This means not “flooding” someone with fears or worst predictions, but also answering questions honestly and explaining reasons why everyone is being asked to make changes/sacrifices in their lifestyle. It may be challenging to keep kids busy at this time, but also help them realize there is potential for bonding with siblings and spending time at home. Finally, all parents should be aware that their children may have signs of stress, such as irritability, trouble sleeping and changes in appetite or energy level, and to seek advice regarding these situations and take action/consult with a professional if necessary. Many resources are available to help you through this complex time including: American Psychological Association: apa.org/helpcenter/pandemics The Centers for Disease Control: cdc. gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/managing-stress-anxiety.html Santa Barbara County Community Wellness Team: sbccwt.org or readysbc.org/health-safety/community-wellness-team (made up of several agencies and groups, including the county psychological association) Santa Barbara County Psychological Association: (sbcpa.org) Includes further resources and a list of practicing psychologists, many of whom are doing remote/telehealth sessions.

“Let’s choose to protect one other. We can be contagious without showing symptoms and six-feet distance applies outside, too!”

––Sue Perry

this is serious

Fellow Carpinterians, even if you think the virus crisis is overblown—what if you’re wrong? Please err on the side of caution. Our choices over the next few weeks really matter. If we do too little, by mid-April we will see a massive shortage of hospital beds. Now, this virus takes two weeks to incubate. So, those hospital shortage victims are not yet infected. Let’s choose to protect one other. We can be contagious without showing symptoms and six-feet distance applies outside, too! When you get too close to me, you put everyone at risk—yourself, me, those who cross our paths next. I’m angry that I may need to stop taking walks because others are keeping too close. Most ridiculous are groups of exercisers who brush against me so they can maintain six-feet from each other. Seriously folks. What if I’ve got it? What if you do?

Sue Perry Carpinteria

two spots for safety

I have an idea Carpinteria. Can the city of Carpinteria temporarily block off two parking spots in front of any restaurant that will do takeout and bring food to your car? I’m thinking all the restaurant’s along Linden and Carpinteria avenues. The city could put out cones and signs, “No Parking, Curbside pick-up only.” Let’s do everything we can to help! How could we facilitate and or get this going? The signs could have a space for the restaurants to put a phone number for customers to call when they arrive for curbside delivery. Wood Ranch, California Pizza Kitchen, PF Chang’s all have these designated spots in Ventura—we could do the same, temporarily. We can do more. All the restaurant employees are working so hard for us. Let’s lead the way!

tP optional

My friend sent me a meme of a woman exchanging sex for toilet paper. Is this what we have become? I know that “cleanliness is godliness” but, really? We are faced with a pandemic and people are scurrying around hoarding hand sanitizer and toilet paper while forgetting the bigger questions of our humanity. We can’t cope with the situation so we busy ourselves with petty purchases to buy time. As for toilet paper, most of the world does without toilet paper and they are quite clean. In fact, they regard American toilet habits as filthy. When I traveled to Africa, the Middle East or Asia, I first encountered life without toilet paper. In the French-inspired places there were bidets for washing next to the toilets. In other places, there were spray wands for washing. In other places, there were buckets of water with cups. Most homes had jugs similar to pots for watering plants. They are called lota or bodna in India, and tasse or ibrik in Arabic. There are many words for simple devices to clean oneself with water after using the toilet.

In my dad’s day in the Ozarks, they used corn cobs and tossed them into the pit toilets to compost. In places where water is used to clean, they say, “What do you do if something sticks?” The same can be said about using dry toilet paper. And here we are, calling ourselves the “most civilized nation,” suffering with angst over a commodity most of the world does without.

Coronavirus bailout

I urge politicians to not bail out “dirty” companies that contribute to climate change unless there are specific “green” benchmarks. In addition to benign business, prioritize support for “clean” companies—those growing industries, their employees, new employee training and a Green New Deal. This health tragedy can provide a moment of change for the better, or a return to the status quo of global environmental decline.

Leland Walmsley Santa Barbara

on behalf of the sewers

Things that can go in the toilet: TP and the three Ps—pee, poop, puke. Toilet paper and only toilet paper. Things that do not go into the toilet: Everything else. If it is not made for the toilet, then put it in the trash. If in doubt, throw it out, in the trash!

Mary Anderson Carpinteria

Addressing the nation

America, take a deep breath, remain calm and stay informed. Yes, the coronavirus crisis is serious. However, our country is doing everything in its power to handle the situation. Most politicians, the medical field and the majority of Americans are doing their best to help. But, is the media and the younger generation doing the same? Why is the media promoting hysteria? Why is the younger generation ignoring guidelines and partying on beaches and meeting in large groups? It is time for the media to do what is best for our country and for the younger generation to grow up and take personal responsibility. In order for America to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, we need allhands-on-deck. Then this crisis will pass.

Foodbank of Santa Barbara County expands services in Carpinteria

Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County will provide emergency food distributions every Wednesday at 4:30 p.m., alternating sites between Carpinteria High School and Carpinteria Children’s Project. Additionally, senior citizens can receive home food deliveries by calling the Foodbank at (805) 967-5741. Foodbank Marketing Communications Manager Judith Smith-Meyer said in a telephone interview on Tuesday, March 24, “We’re here for everybody,” emphasizing that people should not hesitate to use the Foodbank out of fear of taking food from others who may be more in need. “We have been planning for this,” Smith-Meyer added, “we are

equipped for this.” From the hard lessons of the Thomas Fire and debris flows, the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County has strengthened its partnerships with county and city agencies in the region and taken the lead on developing a county-wide disaster feeding plan. “We learned (from the Thomas Fire and debris flows) that people shelter-in-place,” Smith-Meyer said. “That situation applies here,” she noted, acknowledging the many agencies coordinating food relief in the county such as the Office of Emergency Management, the Public Health District, cities and school districts as well. Food distribution on this scale “couldn’t happen without those partnerships,” Smith-Meyer said.

Coronavirus scams and price gouging emerge

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued a consumer alert about deceptive advertising related to novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in California. Becerra reminds all Californians to be mindful of any products or services that falsely claim to treat, diagnose, prevent or cure COVID-19. According to the CDC and the World Health Organization, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, nor is there a medicine that treats or cures coronavirus. “Do not be hustled by opportunistic tricksters claiming to have a miracle cure. There is not a cure for COVID-19,” said Becerra. “I encourage anyone who has been the victim of a snake oil scam or who otherwise has information about products that are falsely touted as coronavirus treatments, tests or cures to immediately file a complaint through my office’s website at http://oag.ca.gov/report.” California’s consumer protection laws, including the Unfair Competition Law, False Advertising Law and Consumers Legal Remedies Act, prohibit false, deceptive or misleading advertising, including any advertising that explicitly claims or implies that a product treats the coronavirus. A statement does not have to be literally false to be illegal; any claim that is likely to mislead a consumer may result in action by the Attorney General’s Office. Compliance with federal requirements or industry standards is not a defense to liability under California law. In addition, Attorney General Becerra

reminds all Californians that, under Penal Code Section 396, price gouging is illegal in all California communities during the declared state of emergency. California law generally prohibits charging a price that exceeds, by more than 10 percent, the price of an item before a state or local declaration of emergency. This law applies to the prices of certain goods or services when a declared state of emergency results in disruptions of the market, including with respect to food, emergency and medical supplies, and other consumer goods. Exceptions to this prohibition exist if, for example, the price of labor, goods or materials has increased for the business. Violators of the price gouging statute are subject to criminal prosecution that can result in a one-year imprisonment in county jail and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Violators are also subject to civil enforcement actions including civil penalties of up to $2,500 per violation, injunctive relief, and mandatory restitution. The Attorney General and local district attorneys can enforce the statute.

COVID-19 total rises to 24

The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (PHD) has confirmed 24 cases of COVID-19, with 11 cases in North County and 13 in South County. The county did not release the city in which new patients reside. Among the South County residents, PHD noted that three are in their 20s, two are in their 40s and one individual is in their 70s. PHD stated they are conducting a thorough investigation to determine how the patients contracted COVID-19 as well as identifying persons with whom they may have had close contact. Mandated social distancing measures are in place to slow the spread of the virus. All large nonessential professional, social and community gatherings should be postponed or cancelled, and smaller gatherings should be modified to allow for at least six feet of space between participants. “We are urging our community to stay home when they are sick and practice consistent social distancing practices,” said Van Do-Reynoso, Public Health director for Santa Barbara County. “It is critical that we all take the necessary steps to slow the spread of this illness in our community.” Last week, Governor Gavin Newsom issued a “Stay at Home” Order to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, a socially

transmitted illness. “We all have a role in stopping it from spreading,” stated a release from PHD, “By working together to flatten the curve, we will help to prevent Santa Barbara County’s healthcare systems from being overwhelmed and reduce the possibility of casualties from the virus.” For more information, visit PublicHealthSBC.org or find PublicHealthSBC on Twitter and Facebook. To speak to a county employee by phone, contact (833) 688-5551, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; 211 or outside the area, call (800) 400-1572. A recorded information line can be reached at (805) 681-4373.

Community members are reminded to take measures to prevent the spread of respiratory illness:

• Wash your hands with soap and water • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands • Avoid close contact with people who are sick • Stay home if you become sick with respiratory symptoms, fever or cough • Keep surfaces clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant.

Self-isolation requires self-reflection

By Amy mArIe OrOzCO

How’s the self-isolation working? “Fine,” you might answer, “if, indeed, I was isolated.” It’s been one week since Gov. Newsom announced California’s stay-at-home order, and Carpinteria is looking more and more like a ghost town, with the exceptions of the Casitas Plaza and Smart & Final parking lots. Schools are shuttered and sidewalks rolled up. For the most part, residents are burrowing at home with a recess once or twice a day for some outside activity. “This order isn’t to punish us; it’s to help lower the spread of COVID-19,” said Linda Menesez, a Santa Barbara-based licensed psychotherapist. “The more we all adhere to this new order, the better chance our medical system can have to successfully treat those who become ill, and the fewer new cases there will be.” Though it may take time, a vaccine is on its way. In that we have faith. What’s in question is the ability to survive long hours at a time with the same people in close quarters. As one local woman, who asked for anonymity, reported on last week’s first day of the shelter in place order, “Oh if you really want a laugh. . . I took a break and made the them (6-year-old, 11-year-old, and a 19-year-old) try yoga, that lasted about 5 minutes and was total chaos. Then had lunch and sanitized doorknobs. Walked into my bedroom to find water on the floor and my ceiling leaking (#$%^ &*%!) then went into the garage to get something to help with the leak and found that one of the dogs did her business on the floor (#$%^ &*%!). And it’s only day ONE!” Menesez noted, “As challenging as this all might be, we can all use it to learn and grow as human beings. We can begin to have a deeper exploration of our priorities and values and see if they really reflect who we want to be.” How do we know how we are doing with this new imposed lifestyle if we are sequestered? Are we acting normal? Is our behavior appropriate? Did I blow my top or was I just letting off steam? Of course, there’s no one-size-fits-all checklist for mental health. Menesez

offers the following to help in assessing and/or guiding the situation. It’s normal and natural to be at least somewhat anxious about the spread of the coronavirus. What we want to watch out for are overwhelming feelings of fear, sadness and anger. It’s the extent of our emotional reactions and resultant behaviors that we need to be aware of. A red flag is the signs of a deepening depression: sleeping problems, lack of appetite, loss of ability to experience pleasure, trouble getting out of bed, etc. Limit exposure to the constant bombardment of news on COVID-19, most of which is frightening and unsettling information. Check it out once or twice a day to keep up with what you need to know. It’s traumatizing to continually be watching coverage, reading articles and talking in negative terms about it. We benefit from having our spirits lifted through our focus on something funny, inspiring or touching. Notice your anxiety level.

While so many industries have been forced to halt or curtail production, one sector is busy taking advantage of the roadways’ lack of workforce commuters: highway construction work. The Hwy 101: Linden and Casitas Pass Project has been pushing forward and adding details during the weeks’ long crisis in the hopes of finishing key portions by the end of the month to begin the next phase of street widening in April. “There is a push to see if with less traffic on the roadways, we can make up for some of the rain delays,” said Kirsten Ayars, spokesperson for the project. “We have had a number of rain delays, so it remains to be seen if they can make up all that time. “ With a reduced amount of traffic, crews have been able to remove base material and prepare shoulders on southbound and northbound lanes between Linden Avenue and Casitas Pass Road for continuously reinforced concrete pavement. Ogan Road is closed between Linden Avenue and Pacific Village Drive where crews are building the new roundabout and roadway improvements.

City will take over Rincon Bluffs Preserve Escrow is closing on “priceless” land trust property

By Melinda Burns

The Rincon Bluffs Preserve, a scenic oceanfront property zoned for a destination resort at the eastern edge of Carpinteria, is slated to be transferred this week to the city and managed forever as public open space. The city is expected to close escrow on Friday on the 22-acre preserve at the junction of Carpinteria Avenue and Highway 150, purchasing it for $945,000 from the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County, a nonprofit preservationist group. “This is much more than a local park: this is a regional treasure,” Matt Roberts, Carpinteria’s parks and recreation director, said this week. “It’s a very significant addition to the nature and trail network in Carpinteria.” On Tuesday, the county Board of Supervisors approved the final $145,000 for the purchase; the money comes from funds that offshore oil and gas projects OP SUEY provide to the county for coastal resource HICKENenhancement.

Cannabis gets a big win in Wine Country

By Melinda Burns

Is cannabis compatible with wine grapes? Yes, the county Board of Supervisors said this week, voting 4-0 to uphold a land-use permit for Busy Bee Organics, allowing cannabis cultivation on 22 acres along Highway 246, west of Buellton. The scenic highway is the gateway to the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Ynez Valley wine country. It was the first appeal of a cannabis land-use permit to come before the board in the region, and it was a big win for Busy Bee. Sara Rotman, the property co-owner, asked for and won a four-acre increase beyond the 18 acres approved for cultivation by the county Planning Commission in November. One greenhouse will be allowed on the 62-acre property; the rest of the 22 acres in cultivation will be outdoors, including a maximum of five acres under plastic tarps in “hoop houses.” Two new 3,000 square-foot buildings will be allowed for processing. “We’re just grateful to get back to the work of farming,” Rotman, a co-owner of Busy Bee with her husband, Nate Diaz, said by phone after Tuesday’s hearing. “There’s been an extraordinary amount of scrutiny and review. It makes projects like mine better, and I’m grateful that the supervisors agreed.” But Marc Chytilo, an attorney for the Santa Barbara Coalition for Responsible Cannabis, a citizens’ group, called the vote “an extreme disservice to the commission and the community.” The coalition had asked the board to deny a permit for Busy Bee, or, alternatively, place a three-year term limit on it. Chytilo said the increase from 18 to 22 acres would result in an “excessive amount of cultivation on this parcel.” Busy Bee, he said, was proposing a major industrial operation that deserved more scrutiny. “We don’t oppose cannabis,” Chytilo said. “Categorically, we want to see the county get this right. The process has not worked in this case.” Residents and vintners told the board that the “stench” from Busy Bee and other cannabis operations was ruining their quality of life and undermining business in 20 or more wine tasting rooms. Landuse permits for more than 970 acres of cannabis are pending in the region. “Our lives have been abruptly battered with the unfettered pot growing,” Dianne Pence, a coalition member, said. “These new pot owners have no vested interest in our community.”

In addition to increasing the acreage in cannabis for Busy Bee, the board lifted other permit restrictions imposed by the commission, including a requirement for additional review by the county planning director after two years.

video to reduce potential exposure to the coronavirus. Supervisor Peter adam of Orcutt was absent. In a first for the county, the board allowed members of the public to phone in their comments. One caller said Busy Bee was a “model family farm.” Jack Motter, a fellow cannabis applicant, said Rotman was “the exact kind of person we need to help us establish this industry.” Jon Olgrehn, who works in conventional and organic agriculture, including vineyards, called in to say that Busy Bee was “one of the cleanest operations out there.” “They have the direct support of their immediate neighbors,” Olgrehn said. “It’s time for us to make decisions based on facts, not fear.” South Coast Supervisor Das Williams, who represents the Carpinteria Valley, where residents are up in arms about the skunk-like smell of cannabis from greenhouse operations, said Busy Bee was “one of the most innocuous” projects “on the landscape.” He described visiting the property, fully expecting “not to be impressed.” Rotman and Diaz have planted rows of trees along the highway to screen their land from public view. “You could even say I was leaning against the project,” Williams said. “Then

I passed it by without even noticing there was a marijuana operation there. That’s what we want.” Chytilo presented a radically different picture of Busy Bee, showing the board aerial Google photographs that he said were confirmation of an illegal expansion on the property, from one greenhouse in 2015 to what appeared to be six greenhouses and 16 hoop houses in 2018. County officials said they opened a zoning violation case, but dropped it after the owners applied for a land-use permit in late 2018. a county staff report for the project stated that the planning commission approved it in 2019, “thereby authorizing the existing cannabis operation.” Coalition members told the board they viewed the permit as a “reward for noncompliance.” “Do you take us for fools?” asked Blair Pence, a coalition founder and the owner of Pence Ranch & Winery near Buellton. In addition to increasing the acreage in cannabis for Busy Bee, the board lifted other permit restrictions imposed by the commission, including a requirement for additional review by the county planning director after two years. at the same time, the board upheld a requirement for unplanted 100-foot buffers on the eastern and western sides of the property to reduce pesticide conflicts with vineyard and broccoli operations. Busy Bee will be required to install wind screens and fans and, ultimately, an odor-control system on the property boundary, if the county determines that odors from the marijuana harvesting and drying operations are creating a “substantially continuous public nuisance.” But the board removed permit restrictions imposed by the commission that would have required Busy Bee to dry cannabis offsite, immediately flashfreeze or box fresh plants, and ship all plant material offsite within two hours of the harvest, in order to keep odors under control. Chytilo lambasted the board for what he called “cut-and-paste” and “decideon-the-fly” changes. “It substantially undercuts the authority of the planning commission and increases the odor footprint,” he said. In explaining his support for Busy Bee, board Chairman Gregg Hart, who represents Goleta, said, “I do believe that cannabis farming and the wine industry can coexist.” Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, representing Santa Maria, said that some large outdoor cannabis “grows” in the county were operating next to vineyards with zero complaints. and both Lavagnino and Hart noted that the city of Buellton had submitted a letter of support for Busy Bee. “We live in an agricultural community,” Lavagnino said. “agriculture means different things to different people. We allow our growers the tools to do the job they need to do.” Yet the county’s own agricultural advisory committee had urged the board to delay voting on the Busy Bee permit appeals until the commission and the board could draw up amendments to the county’s Cannabis Zoning Ordinance. and, according to the Grower-Shipper association of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, most of its members operating near hemp or cannabis operations have experienced “significant and acrimonious conflict.” Supervisor Joan Hartmann, who represents the Santa Ynez Valley, said the Busy Bee permit “raised a lot of issues we need to address going forward.” “It’s clear we need greater ability to condition these projects so that they are compatible with the surrounding area,” she said.

Paralyzed flower industry gives away thousands of blooms By DeBra Herrick

Its springtime and flowers across Carpinteria Valley are in full bloom in one of the nation’s largest cut flower producing regions. But, as the historically busiest time of the year approaches—Easter and Mother’s Day holidays—Carpinteria’s flower growers have been crippled by the coronavirus pandemic, and some now fear they might not survive to next spring’s harvest. On Foothill Road, the corridor for Carpinteria’s flower basket, farm workers from MOBI’s trucked hundreds of bouquets of gerberas to give away to passersby. “Free flowers, brighten someone’s day,” read one of their signs. Westerlay’s orchids popped up at Corktree Cellars and Peebee & Jays, free with purchases. Bunches of Hilltop Flowers’ carnations were handed out across the city. Ocean Breeze posted lilies at Risdon’s 76 on Via Real. Soon free flowers were spotted elsewhere, delivered to Carpinteria Children’s Project, Shepard Place and GranVida, and dropped off on doorsteps of friends and family. The flowers became known as “kindness” flowers and many people took to social media to say how the fresh cut blossoms had brightened their day. The kindness flowers are a small portion of the hundreds of thousands of flowers from Carpinteria that were cultivated for the spring season and will not make it to market. The problem: flower growers can’t get their blooms to customers. Ninety-nine percent of the trucks that carry flowers across the country have suspended service, said Karen Graf of Hilltop Flowers. The Los Angeles and San Diego flower markets have been shut down and grocery store chains have suspended purchasing. Orders have been canceled from the mass markets to the local florists. Graf has had to destroy thousands of

bunches of flowers and will continue to do so. “There’s flowers in the field that we won’t be able to harvest and those will just die and get mulched back into the soil. We also lost everything in our cooler because nobody is buying anything.” “It’s pretty bleak,” said Graf who has been donating her family farm’s flowers to Shepard Place and Carpinteria Children’s Project. “The positiveness comes out and I would rather give it away to bring joy… It’s not the first time we’ve had to throw product away for one reason or another, but this is a time when people really need something to brighten their day.” Westerlay Orchids has also taken a big hit, said owner Toine Overgaag, with Westerlay’s sales down 80 percent in the past two weeks. On an average year, Easter and Mother’s Day make for the company’s biggest quarter. “The timing is as bad as it gets,” said Overgaag. “We’re going to consider ourselves fortunate if our revenue is cut in half this year.” Typically, Westerlay sells 50,000 orchids in a week. This week, they sold 20 percent and either gave away or had to destroy the rest. Orchids aren’t often shipped, so Westerlay’s issue has not been with trucks, but with supermarket supply chains and warehouses. Supermarkets are using all their warehouse space to restock goods that are getting depleted quickly from store shelves—items like toilet paper, paper towels, bottled waters, dry and canned goods. “Our biggest customers, the supermarkets, are extraordinarily busy. Their supply chain is getting really squeezed,” said Overgaag. “As people are looking for toilet paper and such, they can’t get other things in.” “We’ve been here since 1978, and there’s a very real chance we don’t make it through this,” said Overgaag. “In 200809, that was an absence or reduction of

demand. This is we can’t get product to the market. It’s very different and its scary.” Last week, the company had to lay off 20 percent of its employees and reduced hours for all others. Westerlay has already destroyed about 10,000 plants and that number will jump dramatically in the next couple weeks if the market doesn’t return. Potentially,

the company could destroy as many as 300,000 plants this season. This week, Westerlay will donate 10,000 plants to Cottage Hospital, Kaiser Permanente and Sansum Clinic. “It’s nice to give to people on the front lines; it’s just a small token,” said Overgaag. “And, it’s starting to get a little better, there’s a bit of a ray out there.”

Girls Inc. basketball program brings bold smiles By Alonzo orozco • Photos By rosAnA swing

On March 5 Carpinteria’s Girls Inc. chapter finished their inaugural Winter Basketball Program, introducing its new Basketball Enrichment concept. “The girls made tremendous improvements over the eight weeks, for many, it was their first time playing basketball or participating in a sports program,” said Teen Program Manager Kenya Rodriguez. The clinic was attended by 14 girls, ages 9 to 14. Coaches Michelle Alpizar and Laura Flores helped with the program. Both are Carpinteria High School athletes. The duo, who participated in the curriculum at the club since joining as young girls, were recently awarded $25,000 in scholarships for their overall service to the community.

“Three critical goals drive our programming: to help girls achieve healthy lives, succeed academically and acquire the life skills needed to prepare them for adulthood,” said Rodriguez, who has worked at Girls Inc. for five years. Founded in Carpinteria in 1971 as a summer camp, the organization places an emphasis on physical activity. In Girls Inc.’s recent study, “Stronger, Smarter, Bolder: Girls take the Lead,” it was noted that girls ages 6 through 12 are less likely than boys to participate in team sports. “Our goal is to have girls develop movement and athletic skills, cooperative and competitive spirit, and healthy habits so that they can

experience the benefits and excitement of taking positive risks that bolster their self-confidence and personal growth,” said Rodriguez. The organization’s Project BOLD program adheres to this philosophy where girls learn skills and strategies to lead safer lives in their homes, relationships, communities and online. In the Be BOLD program, girls ages 6 to 8 build skills and personal power for dealing with hurtful or dangerous situations. Girls also learn about resources they can access for greater safety. The Action for Safety aspect is for girls ages 9 to 11. It helps build negotiation, assertiveness and self-defense skills. It also helps initiate open and honest discussions to enhance girls’ understanding about interpersonal violence, lessening the fear and isolation of girls experiencing violence. Also, the Living Safe & Strong segment for girls ages 12 to 14 helps to continue discussions of gender violence issues, and reinforces and provides additional safety strategies and selfdefense skills for teen girls. Another one of Girls Inc.’s programs called Mind + Body promotes the whole health of girls ages 6 to 18. It focuses on four critical content areas: physical activity, body image, nutrition and stress management. The program is based on the belief that every girl can find a type of physical activity that she enjoys and girls of all shapes and sizes have

Mina handall takes to the air. the right to feel good about their bodies. Additionally, girls who participate, identify a strategy for healthy eating that works for them. Emphasis is also given to teaching girls to understand that stress is a normal part of life, and that handling stress in a healthy way is a key factor in having a strong body and mind. “We know that when their access to sports participation is limited, girls miss the chance to develop skills that will help them succeed and habits that can keep them healthy throughout their lives,” said Rodriquez. Girls Inc.’s campus is currently closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But programs and activities continue to be provided for girls through a variety of online platforms like Zoom, Facebook Live and Instagram Live. The Teen Program director recently held an online workshop on Zoom for teens girls on healthy stress management during this time. To learn more, visit girlsinc-carp.org.

Ten section commissioners will meet on April 3 to decide whether or not to continue CIF’s sports schedule. CIF suspended play of all of its high school sports and practices due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Baseball, boys golf, boys tennis, boys volleyball, boys and girls lacrosse, boys and girls swimming, boys and girls track and field and softball have all been halted as a precautionary measure in dealing with the coronavirus. “While the time may come when we have to cancel postseason events, today is not that day,” wrote CIF Executive Director Ron Nocetti following the March 18 meeting. Schools throughout the state have already stopped all athletic activities.

Life with corona CVN

fLYBY f r a N d aV i s It’s a pretty thing, isn’t it? Magnified images of the virus—a rotund ball studded with little pink florets. Similar enough, I guess, to a crown, a corona, to merit the name. In spite of the royal name, it’s a boogeyman, a monster, bearer of our worst fears. We’re sheltering in place, in our new place, in the flatlands of Goleta. Reduced to the basics. Hunkered down. We’re all living like cavemen now, pressed up against our own walls, peering out to scan the distance for dangers. What I fail to understand is the hoarding of things like toilet paper. I got a video recently that showed a guy paying for his coffee with little squares of toilet paper, counting them out like dollar bills. It made me laugh, of course. And laughter is a very good thing in times like these. Panic and pandemonium seem to be riding tandem. The one leading to the other, both contagious. Hoarding is instinctual, we hear, a fear-based survivalof-the-fittest drive to take care of one’s self and one’s own. My friend Linda watched a Trader Joe’s clerk remove two apples from a woman’s cart that contained five. Five apples doesn’t seem like hoarding to me, but when shortages are critical I guess every apple counts. It’s a thing we should strive to remember. Consider others in our human group who may need an apple or two. At Albertson’s, where there were no shopping carts available, I spotted a woman whose cart was piled to the gunnels with bottled water. What? Did she think the spigots would be turned off? That could happen during an earthquake, but during an epidemic? The thing we’re urged to remember is that the problem is not a food shortage, but delivery issues. With everyone grabbing everything edible from shelves, delivery trucks can’t keep up with greedy demand. So here we are, hunkered down. Forced to read books, watch TV, use email or Skype to reach out to friends. But we can still go outside, take walks, look at what our bounteous spring has to offer. Nature is oblivious to our turmoil, trees leafing out, plants throwing out buds and beeloving blossoms in a wild array. Here at Encina Royale, our new digs, we are surrounded by eye-pleasing stretches of grass and gardens and trees, with paths winding through everything.

That could happen during an earthquake, but during an epidemic?” lematic and stores very far away. I do miss Carpinteria, though. I miss writing for the paper and I miss the town with its shops, friends, and especially my favorite gym, the Gym Next Door and the kind and convivial women I hung out with. The gym, like most gyms, is closed now, a necessary inconvenience.

The move

A few words about moving from our Summerland home of 50 years. No regrets, but the displacement was traumatic. Having everything you own uprooted and taken away, as if by a tornado, was so disorienting it has taken us several months to adjust. Getting our old stuff settled into the new place was an exploration, like laying down familiar landmarks to establish a trail, a way to move forward. The displacement was psychological, parts of our psyches taking a long time to sift down, finding the right spot to land. It was a bit like Alice in Wonderland at first. Where were we? How did the mountains move? They are lower here, more like a tall range of hills. Clouds sit comfortably along the crests instead of settling into deep crevices of the taller peaks behind Summerland. Even the air is different, colder, crisper. The condos at Encina Royale sit under a flight path for small aircraft, so I regularly see and hear little planes buzzing by overhead, lowering, getting ready to land. Briefly noted and then gone. Flybys I call them. Like this column that I hope to keep writing as time and conditions allow. One good thing: Although we are physically separated, we are still united, all sharing these fearful times together as Americans. Fran Davis has been writing for CVN for over 25 years.

Freedom Warming Centers provide shelter to over 1,000 people throughout the winter months on nights with life-threatening weather conditions. Carpinteria Community Church serves as an emergency warming center.

Warming centers suspend activations

Freedom Warming Centers (FWC) has suspended all activations, according to a statement released on Sunday, March 22. During the 2019-2020 winter activation season, FWC shelters 200 individuals a night across 12 sites. FWCs are a low-barrier service providing shelter to all in need of sanctuary on cold or rainy nights. Despite many challenges, FWC has been leading the charge in helping the homeless survive adverse weather since 2009; however, the coronavirus and the state’s “Stay at Home” Order have posed challenges that FWC is unable to adequately meet. “Obviously, this is a decision that was difficult to make,” stated the release. “Over the past week the facts became more overwhelming and convincing and left us no other choice but to suspend further activations. We gave it everything we had to try and make the activations work.” Santa Barbara County is currently working with the state of California to find an alternative solution for sheltering the homeless, according to Kathleen Hayes, FWC director, who noted that the state has many requirements that will need to be met to open a 24/7 shelter. For more information, contact FWC’s hotline at (805) 324-2372.

school notes Special Education moves to online learning

Carpinteria Unified School District’s Special Education program will transition to online learning when the term resumes on March 30. “These are extraordinary times and the information and guidelines from local, state and federal authorities have resulted in decisions and actions that will continue to evolve and adapt to the quickly changing environment,” wrote Dr. Karla Curry, director of special education, in a letter to families. Schools are charged with making every effort to provide special education and related services to students in accordance with the student’s individualized education program (IEP) or, for students entitled to FAPE, under Section 504. Evaluation, referral and IEP distribution timelines for all students in the referral process for special education services have been suspended and will resume the day school campuses reopen for onsite classes. The postponement applies to all students in the annual review and re-evaluation process. Home/hospital services will resume the week of March 30 via alternate means such as Skype, Zoom, telephone, and/or educational packets and will continue remotely for the length of the closures.

AHA! goes online

Adapting to school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the social-emotional education group AHA! plans to use the online meeting program Zoom to conduct its youth and parent group meetings. AHA! co-founder Dr. Jennifer Freed said the organization will also provide videos created by staff with information on “self-care, mindfulness, healthy relationships, physical activity and reminders of the power of curiosity and laughter.” Videos will be posted on the AHA! Instagram: @aha_sb. For more information, see ahasb.org.

COMMANDER’S RECAP

Reports from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office

COASTAL BUREAU OPERATIONS MARCH 15 – 21

Wednesday, March 18

8:12 a.m. / Possession / 5550 block Carpinteria Avenue

A man was driving through the parking lot of a motel in a vehicle with expired registration. He was contacted and stated he was not driving; he was only checking the engine. While being questioned, the man admitted to being in possession of a baggie of meth. He was cited and the vehicle was left parked.

11:05 p.m. / Minor in Possession of Alcohol / 3900 block Via Real

A 19-year-old man was attempting to teach his girlfriend to drive inside a mobile home park while listening to loud music. Upon contact, he was found to be in possession of alcohol. The alcohol was poured out, and he was cited.

12:14 a.m. / Drug Crimes / 4200 block Via Real

Deputies were alerted to a woman who had been slumped over the steering wheel of her vehicle while at a gas pump for about 15 minutes. The driver was a 34-year-old Goleta resident. Upon contact, it was obvious that she was under the influence of controlled substances. The woman’s vehicle was searched, and she was cited for drug violations. She was released into the custody of her mother.

1:20 a.m. / Traffic Collision Hit and Run / 1500 block Jay Street

Deputies and Carpinteria Fire responded to a report of a vehicle into a residence. The driver reportedly fled the scene. A canine unit responded, and the area was searched for the suspect, but he was not found. Nobody in the home was injured. A message was left with two city employees about the need to have the structure inspected for safety.

Thursday, March 19

7:26 a.m. / False Registration Tabs / El Carro Lane at Camino Trillado

A man was contacted while sitting in his vehicle waiting for his boss. The man’s vehicle registration was found to be expired but displaying a current registration sticker. He was was cited and released.

9:24 a.m. / Vehicle Burglary / 6000 block Rincon Road

A resident discovered that her vehicle had been gone through in the night. Items taken were checks/documents/ owner’s manual. The victim discovered

a car bumper possibly belonging to the suspect’s vehicle. The vehicle, a 2003 Honda, is registered to a man (deputies obtained a name). The driver in a vehicle crashed into a home the previous night, fled from the same vehicle registered to the man noted. A deputy then recognized a woman walking in the area and turned around to contact her. The woman was seen taking something out of her pocket and shoving it down her shorts. Upon contact, a broken meth pipe fell out of the woman’s shorts. She denied the pipe belonged to her. With some convincing, the woman removed the usable meth pipe, with meth in the bowl, from her shorts. She was cited and released. A male subject was with her and he had three misdemeanor warrants for his arrest from Ventura County. Deputies offered Ventura Sheriff’s deputies the opportunity to pick the male up at the county line but they declined, stating they were citing all misdemeanor warrants. The man was released and told to go to Ventura Court.

12:02 p.m. / Traffic Collision / 5800 block Via Real

A woman was driving east on Via Real while attempting to plug her phone into the “radio cable.” She appeared to accelerate and drive towards the right shoulder where she collided with a power pole. The woman left the scene to secure her dogs at her residence nearby and then returned. Southern California Edison had to be called out and power was temporarily off in the area. Via Real was closed from 5750 Via Real to Poplar Street for several hours.

Friday, March 20

4:45 p.m. / Check Fraud / 3900 block Via Real

A man reported a fraudulent check was made from his account and an unknown suspect attempted to cash it for $1,500. The check was declined and there was no monetary loss. The man believed it may have been a family member but had no proof of this. Follow-up will be conducted by patrol.

8:30 p.m. / Possible Vandalism / 1000 block Casitas Pass Rd

A caller reported that two employees possibly destroyed baking items used at a donut shop after being told their hours were cut due to COVID-19. The two employees were unable to be reached. Incident report only.

What’s new at the harbor seal rookery? Many Sealwatch volunteers are observing social distancing by staying home or stationing on the beach at the ends of the sanctuary rather than acting as docents at the overlook. As a result, accurate seal and pup counts for last week are not available. However, a few new births have been observed, so we know this season there have been about 70 births to date. Harbor seals need to rest on land at their few chosen haul-out areas about 50 percent of the time. Please help protect our rare local rookery by respecting the “No Trespassing” signs. The city’s no trespassing ordinance, and the Federal Marine Mammal Protection Act, will be enforced when people enter the sanctuary area. If any member of the public sees anyone violating the laws by walking on the beach or disturbing the seals from the bluffs, and they do not respond to a polite request to stop, City Code Enforcement or the Sheriff’s Office may be contacted.

Signs of the times

Photos by Robin KaRlsson

Connected to the wider world in a way no community wants to be, Carpinteria is contending with the threat posed by the international COVID-19 pandemic. Schools and many businesses are closed for an indeterminate period of time, but public health officials assure that by strict observance of stay-at-home orders and social distancing, and by taking precautions in public, the coming surge of infections will “level-off” and the pandemic will become history. In the meantime, Carpinterians must wash their hands regularly, not touch their faces, and accept that their favorite establishments are operating in uncharted territory, if at all.

unpredictable wilderness chuck graham The ticks were moving up my pant legs faster than I thought after tiptoeing across a year-round spring that flows to a deserted beach located south of the Guadalupe-Nipomo Sand Dunes National Wildlife Refuge. Unfortunately, I’ve always been a tick magnet, and at times have found them on me in unspeakable places following a trip days later, so I didn’t panic when the 3-to-5-milimeterlong arachnids were merely scaling the exterior of my canvas pants. Once, a few years back, I counted 19 ticks on my legs after walking across the same spring along that lonely stretch of the Central California Coast. I managed to rid myself of that army of ticks then and the ticks in between while shooting photos of dune poppies, giant coreopsis and wild lilies just 10 days prior to writing this column. At the same time, I was mulling over the concept of social distancing, ditching crowded venues for self-quarantining at home, when really the best place to do this has always been the woods, the islands, the mountains. Thankfully, gratefully, we have an abundance of great escapes well within reach. When it feels like the world is spiraling out of control it’s all the diversity of habitats in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties that beckons. Unfortunately, it takes a global catastrophe to sometimes realize our best escape is within spitting distance.

A signpost in the dunes signals that western snowy plovers cross here.

“When it feels like the world is spiraling out of control it’s all the diversity of habitats in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties that beckon. Unfortunately, it takes a global catastrophe to sometimes realize our best escape is within spitting distance.”

Paradise is where you find it

The first 100 feet of my ascent was in knee-deep sand, a lot of three lunges forward and then sliding back some. Before eventually going barefoot, I emptied my trail shoes seven times during the eight miles of soft sand dune dwelling, so I was a little stubborn. Once at the apex of the tallest dunes, I always seek out the best route, meaning the most compacted sand. Recent rains aided in that search and before I knew it, I was gazing across Paradise Beach and all the way out to Point Sal. The descent to the beach was roughly 500 feet; big, long strides had me at the spring in a couple of minutes where I could hear water drops splashing on the sand. Wild lilies clung to the edge of the weathered bluffs. South winds had the ocean in tatters, but the migrating surf scoters bobbed in the choppy seas without a care, while a red-tailed hawk soared over the dunes. No one around, not a visible footprint on the deserted beach, social distancing on a roadless stretch of coast was sublime.

Dune escape

The dunes are still one of the best kept secrets in Santa Barbara County. Over the last 25 years, the most people I’ve seen out there at one time is maybe five individuals. Most every trip I’ve taken out there, it’s just me. When the striking pink and orange hues of first light sweep across a wind-groomed dune crest, it’s magical—and again, when the sun sinks in the west and shadows creep across the sand. Coastal wildflowers are a hardy bunch on the Guadalupe Dunes. Ravaged by perpetual, howling northwest winds and stinging sand particles, dune dwelling flora over time has adapted to the thick salty air and relentless winds. Whether tucked at the bottom of a dune trough or at the top of a dune crest, there’s no escaping these winds, monstrous gales blasting their way off craggy Point Conception, the Western Gate, and keeping up steam in the Santa Barbara Channel. My most recent trip revealed giant coreopsis, Indian paintbrush, silver lupine, sand verbena and more. The dunes are always mesmerizing, photogenic and provide a good workout with my 30-pound camera pack on my back. The tallest dunes are 500-feet and steep, literally towering over the deserted, driftwood-strewn beach south from the carpark to Mussel Rock. Hardy flocks of shorebirds also call the dunes home. That’s especially true of the western snowy plover—the dunes being one of the last, best bastions of this threatened shorebird. With their feathers being the same colors of the beach sand, they are perfectly camouflaged. They don’t migrate, so these year-round residents

hunker down during the winter seeking shelter amongst a constantly reconfigured stretch of coast littered in driftwood, marine mammal carcasses and gnarled strands of kelp. Western snowy plovers don’t build nests. They’ll seek a small depression in the sand well beyond the wrack-line of the most recent high tide mark. The wrack-line is where they typically feed on beach hoppers and other beach-going insects.

Beach-town life goes on (with some major adjustments) PHotos by Robin KARLsson Beautiful spring weather on Saturday and Sunday, March 21 and 22, didn’t change the fact that Carpinteria is facing the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, life must go on, and in the days and weeks ahead moments of sunshine and fresh air will be as vital as keeping six feet of space between individuals outside the home.

Aaron and Gina Crocker take a run with their one-year-old son Christian on Sandyland Road.

Keeping six feet apart, moms Ellie Pennington, Melinda Ray and Brittney Warner chat while the little ones also enjoy a bit of fresh air and sun.

Bringing prayers of peace and serenity, Father Larry (in the shawl) and Jose Patacheck with two laymen of the church bless San Roque mobile home park on Tuesday evening, March 24.

A fresh smoothie from Pacific Health Foods can boost spirits and immunity, not to mention providing relief from long hours at home. From left are Haylee, RJ, their dog Leroy and mom Cindy Binford.

Residents at Silver Strands mobile home park practice community-at-a-distance on Saturday evening, March 21. “Neighbors came out with drinks, snacks, even a portable fire pit, keeping six-feet apart,” said Fred Shaw. “And local muralist Ernie Merlan decorated the street in front of his mobile with an ocean-themed chalk painting.”
