Imagine peeling 2,000 avocados. Then picture dicing 700 garlic cloves, 2,650 chilies, 700 tomatoes, 330 onions, 40 pounds of cheese and 40 cups of cilantro. Those are the ingredients in what has been billed as the "World's Biggest Vat of Guacamole." You can take a gander at this sea of green mush this weekend during the seventh annual California Avocado Festival in Carpinteria. The two-day festival is a giant party in honor of the avocado, the eighth-leading crop in Santa Barbara County and No.

Living a block from the beach, Joel Carty is so used to a surfer's lifestyle that he can walk barefoot over a collection of pointy rocks leading to the ocean and not wince once in discomfort. Having a high pain threshold and daring spirit also comes in handy in football, where Carty made 135 tackles last season as a junior linebacker when Carpinteria High went 14-0 and won the Southern Section Division XI championship.

The class frequently uses The Times sports section to increase cultural literacy; however, the students were thrown for a loss recently. They were quick to point out that Mark Heisler confused Alexander the Great with Achilles in his Dec. 8 story.
