Councilman Armendariz


Following a March no-con- test plea to charges of driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level over two times the legal limit, Carpin- teria City Councilman Joe Armendariz was sentenced to 61 days in jail, three years probation and nearly $2,000 in fines and fees. Santa Bar- bara County prosecutor Gary Gemberling described the sentencing, handed down by Judge James Herman on April 2, as standard for a second DUI offense. The sentencing will


also include an 18-month multiple offender program, which includes counseling and education, through the Department of Motor vehicles and a one-year suspen- sion of his driver’s license.

Walls of water


DAVID POWDRELL


A spring swell rose from the Carpinteria coastline on Sunday, April 1, bringing welcomed overhead waves for set-starved surfers. Among scores of others, local surfer Ian O’Neill paddled out and dropped in on this frothy wall of white at a local surf spot. Although late in the surf season, the April swell marked the biggest of the year after a relatively dead winter. Word on the surf scene is that the late-season session was so appreciated that it earned the title “Savage Sunday.”


Carpinteria State Beach says goodbye to longtime ranger


A bright-eyed Scott Cramolini joined the State Parks Department in 1975, which was a childhood dream come true and led to a rewarding career.


After 36 years of watching over Carpinteria State Beach, Ranger Scott Cramolini has hung up his Stetson for good and retired. The Cali- fornia State Parks’ Channel Coast District Office showed its recognition for Cramolini’s work and reminisced over the past three and a half decades, which saw the growth of the state parks system, its phenomenal popularity and Cramolini’s reign as America’s Ranger of the Year in 2007, at a cel- ebratory potluck on March 29. Memories and main dishes were shared by 200 attendees as they said farewell to Cramolini who, while enforcing the law and managing the park’s resources, witnessed everything from acts of human violence to nature’s beauty and inquisitive campers. “He represents everything we look for in a ranger,” said Richard Rozzelle, District Superintendent for State Parks’ Channel Coast District. “He made people feel safe, was friendly and welcoming and did that while teaching visitors about the state parks.”
