County faces fracking issue

VOLUME 6 ISSUE 111

The Santa Barbara City Council voted Tuesday to oppose any new laws that would make meetings more accessible to the public. Councilman Dale Francisco

led the charge saying that state’s open meetings law is already too strict, and that a quorum of council members should be able to meet in private to discuss city matters as long as the final vote is done in public.

“There are problems with the Brown Act,” Francisco said. “Most people in the public have no idea how much it limits the ability of elected officials to discuss issues.” Francisco later said, “what I

am suggesting is that most of the important legislation in the United States, including the U.S. Constitution, could not have happened under the Brown Act.” Passed in 1953, the Ralph M. See BROWN ACT, page 5

Montecito rehab sanctuary shot down BY SAM TYLER

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

A special care facility called Santa Barbara Healing Sanctuary, with ties to Pacifica Graduate Institute, has been forced to cancel the opening of a new residential treatment program at 720 El Bosque Road in Montecito.

About a dozen neighbors indicated their concern at Tuesday afternoon’s meeting of the Montecito Association’s Land Use Committee, but it was not their presence that put a hold on the innovative program; rather, Sanctuary officials had to stop because of what they said was bad

advice from a land use consultant. The Sanctuary had been assured by the consultant, whom it declines to identify, that a special use permit would not be required for the El Bosque location because it was exempt under Article 35 of the County Code. This article allows programs

with six or fewer clients to function in residential neighborhoods. The catch is that such programs must be licensed by the state. The Sanctuary does not have such a state license. “When we found out from the See SANCTUARY, page 6

The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors got an earful from angry landowners about the safety of new oil and natural gas drilling techniques on Tuesday. Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” is the process of removing oil and natural gas from deep rock layers by drilling down and pumping fluids down to create fractures in the rock. The fractures help release oil or gas, which is pumped back up to the surface. The issue drew attention in Santa Barbara County when Venoco Inc, an oil drilling company, received citations for using hydraulic fracturing without proper approval. County energy deputy director Doug Anthony outlined the basic concerns over fracking. Fracking fluids contain many chemicals which could potential contaminate ground water. Extensive fracturing of rock layers so deep underground could also have seismic complications. There is also little in the way of regulation regarding fracking. Chemicals in fluids aren’t disclosed and fracking is exempt from certain federal regulations such as the Safe Drinking Water Act. While the California Department of Conservation has some jurisdiction over fracking, no policy has been set up. The board was scheduled to hear from Elena Miller, oil and gas supervisor for the California Department of Conservation, but the meeting was delayed until August. The presentation and instructional video explaining hydraulic fracturing left some supervisors underwhelmed about the drilling technique. Second district supervisor Janet Wolf said the video gave her “chills”. While acknowledging that she wasn’t a scientist, Wolf said she found it difficult to believe fracking wouldn’t have longterm environmental consequences. “In 10 or 15 years, people are going to look at us and say, ‘What was wrong with you people?’” Wolf said. Others were more open minded. Fifth district supervisor Steve Lavagnino felt the board should reserve judgment until all the facts were in. “I think before we go out and get our torches and pitchforks, we’ve got to get

away from the hypothetical,” Lavagnino said. “I don’t think good public policy is made from anecdotal stories.” But when it came to public comment, landowners, environmentalists, and industry representatives proved to be far more polarized than the board. 4th District Supervisor and Chair Joni Gray had her hands full trying to keep many of the nineteen speakers inside their time limits. Tom Prendinlle, representing the family who owned a north county ranch Venoco drilled on said claims from the industry about fracking’s safety shouldn’t be taken at face value. He said farms in Pennsylvania and New York have been rendered uninhabitable because of contamination associated with hydraulic fracturing and complained the lack of disclosure made it difficult to conduct independent investigations. “We have no idea what these chemicals are that are going into the water so we can’t even test for them,” Prendinlle said. Tupper Hull, a representative of the Western States Petroleum Association, asserted that companies have strict operating procedures, conduct regular tests, and there has been little to question the safety of fracking.

DAILY SOUND / File Photo

“There really has never been any evidence of harm to groundwater from hydrafracking,” Hull said. Jimmy Dominguez, a landowner, disputed that. Dominguez said companies have admitted to contaminating ground water. Dominguez also pointed out that tampering with groundwater means tampering with the billion dollar agricultural business. “You don’t mess with a billion dollars and you don’t mess with water,” Dominguez said. Lindsey Reed, a Los Alamos landowner near where Venoco has set up shop, also cited the importance of agriculture to the local economy. “Imagine what would happen with California’s strawberry and wine industry if word got out that crops were being irrigated with water contaminated by chemicals,” Reed said. Bob Field, Santa Ynez resident, raised another concern about the amount of water used. Fracking uses groundwater as a base for the fluid. Field said with groundwater the sole source of water in parts of the valley, there may not be enough of it to go around. “It’s not as simple as environmentalists versus oil companies,” Field said. “We’re all dependent on this resource.”

Council wants smaller Fresh & Easy location

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Santa Barbara City Council voted to deny an appeal of the proposed Fresh & Easy development, but ordered the owners to work with city staff to create a smaller footprint.

BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

It wasn’t easy for Fresh & Easy. Nearly five years after the company first won approval to build the trendy market on Milpas Street, the Santa Barbara City Council voted to deny an appeal of the project, but ordered the city staff and developer to work together to make the building smaller. As proposed, the size of the building only allows for a three-foot sidewalk, in area of town rich with pedestrians. “This is a bad piece of sidewalk here,� said councilman Harwood “Bendy� White. “There are thousands of people who don’t have cars and this is their way of getting from here to there. This isn’t the luxury of the automobile. This is people who live on foot.�

The city staff and representatives from Fresh & Easy will meet to talk about ways to move the building back from the sidewalk. Fresh & Easy is proposed for 336 North Milpas Street. Crews already demolished the previous buildings at the site, in anticipation of building a onestory, 11,468 square foot market. The project would have 48 parking spaces. Fresh & Easy offers prepared hot and cold food through self-checkout aisles. The nearest markets are in Ventura and Oxnard. Although the project was first approved in 2006, the owners returned to the Architectural Board of Review several times and won three time extensions, Attorney Tony Fischer spoke on behalf of nearby property owner

Constantino Frangos. Frangos claimed that he was not properly notified about the project; that there was an inadequate environmental testing; and that the building is too close to the street and several street trees. New buildings require a sidewalk with of eight feet. Since the project was approved in 2006, city staff felt that it would be unfair to require the developer to comply with the city’s pedestrian master plan, which was still in the works at the time. “Are we going to have people in this city squeezing in a narrow three foot strip up and down Milpas Street,� Fischer asked. Frangos, who owns the property from 318 to 320 North Milpas St., which is See MARKET, page 6

Plane departs to museum

The U.S. Airways airplane that made a splash-landing dubbed the "Miracle on the Hudson" more than two years ago began a road trip on Saturday to Charlotte, North Carolina, its original, and final, destination. The Airbus A320 airplane, which had sat in a New Jersey warehouse since it was salvaged from the icy Hudson River after the January 2009 water landing, was loaded onto a trailer earlier this week. All 155 passengers and crew survived the incident that made pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger an American hero for his quick-thinking decision to land in the river when the airplane struck a flock of birds just after take-off from New York's LaGuardia airport and lost power in both engines. The plane will make its way over several days to Charlotte, where it will become a permanent exhibit at the Carolinas Aviation Museum.

Santa Barbara City Councilwoman Michael Self plans to formally announce her re-election kickoff party at 5:30 p.m. Thursday on the steps of City Hall. Self was the fourth-highest vote-getter in the 2009 election. She won a seat on the City Council after a fourth slot opened up when Helene Schneider was elected mayor. The 64-year-old councilwoman has been as strong neighborhood advocate during her two years at City Hall. She was elected after her vocal opposition to traffic calming devices such as bulb-outs and mini-roundabouts. Most recently, she was vocal in her opposition to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employee mortgage loan program. As first reported in The Daily Sound, city lent more than $4.4 million in taxpayer money to city employees in the years leading up the economic collapse and housing meltdown. Self said her objections were with the program, not the employees who accepted the loans. The councilwoman told The Daily Sound on Tuesday that she considered not running for re-election because her husband had to give up his retirement to support her service at City Hall. But her husband John told her that she needed to run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He told me people were counting on me,â&#x20AC;? Self said. Self said she has a lot more to accom-

Australia military loses X-Files

Australia's military has lost its X-Files, detailing sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects, or UFOs, across the country, a newspaper report said on Tuesday. After a two-month search in response to a newspaper Freedom of Information (FOI) request, which forces government officials to release documents of public interest, Australia's Department of Defence had been unable to locate the files, the Sydney Morning Herald said. "The files could not be located and Headquarters Air Command formally advised that this file is deemed lost," the department's FOI assistant director, Natalie Carpenter, told the paper. Defence officials could not be contacted by Reuters. The only file Defence had been able to locate was a folder called: "Report on UFOs/Strange Occurrences and Phenomena in Woomera," a military weapons testing range in the center of Australia's vast outback, Carpenter said.

Jackson insurer wont pay

The insurers of Michael Jackson's ill-fated "This Is It" London comeback concerts have asked a judge to nullify a $17.5 million policy taken out by promoters, saying they were never told that the singer was taking powerful drugs. Underwriters at Lloyds of London filed a lawsuit against AEG Live and Jackson's company in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, asking a judge to solve the insurance dispute almost two years after the "Thriller" singer's death. Jackson, 50, died in Los Angeles on June 25 after rehearsing for the upcoming series of 50 concerts in London. Authorities said he died of a massive dose of the anesthetic propofol and a cocktail of other sedatives and painkillers.

Sheriff’s Deputy injured in crash

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT A Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Deputy was injured in a crash Monday night, according to the California Highway Patrol. The unidentified deputy was driving south on Highway 101 near La Cumbre Road about 10:13 p.m., when the deputy lost control of his patrol car, a Ford Crown Victoria. The car went up an embankment next to the La Cumbre Road onramp and hit a 1999 Toyota Prius on the onramp, authorities said. The crashed sent the patrol car rolling, before it came to rest on its side, partially blocking the onramp. A Sheriff’s Deputy quickly arrived on the

BROWN ACT

Brown Act is the state’s open meetings law, which requires elected officials to conduct their business in public with full transparency. The law is also designed to allow the public full participation through timely noticing of agendas and other documents. The issue arose as part of the City Council’s Legislative Platform. The council every year adopts a platform on state and federal matters that represents the city’s views on potential legislation. Under the guidelines developed in the platform, the mayor sends letters in support or in opposition to proposed legislation. The vote on Tuesday was 4-3, with Francisco, Michael Self, Randy Rowse and Frank Hotchkiss voting to “oppose legislation that would impose further restrictions on the action that a governing body can take in closed sessions.” Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider and councilmen Grant House and Harwood “Bendy” White strongly opposed the majority vote, saying that a quorum of elected officials

scene, broke the patrol car’s side window and pulled the injured deputy out of the car. An ambulance took the injured deputy to Santa Barbara Cottage, where he was treated for moderate injuries. The driver of the Prius, Jeremiah Nix, 29, of Santa Barbara complained of shoulder pain but refused treatment, said Sgt. Donald Clotworthy, spokesman for the California Highway Patrol said.

should not be able to meet privately, even if a final vote is not taken. “The whole point of the Brown Act is to stop closed-door decisions,” said Mayor Schneider. “At the end of the day transparency is paramount when it comes to making decision that affect the public.” Francisco repeatedly said that he had no interest in coming to final decision outside of the public eye. All final votes would be taken in public, he said. “The Brown Act can never provide perfect transparency,” Francisco said. “It’s a process that gives people a false sense of security.” The councilman, who is running for re-election this year, said that city planners are allowed to meet in private. “There are no requirements that staff meet in public,” Francisco said. “Yet, in reality that is where 95 percent of the important work occurs.” The councilman said it is the public’s responsibility to be engaged and attend meeting and that they should elect officials who then entrust to make the best policy decisions.

Santa Barbara City Council voted to deny an appeal of the proposed Fresh & Easy development, but ordered the owners to work with city staff to create a smaller footprint.

MARKET

FROM PAGE 3 immediately next to the proposed Fresh & Easy said the project is just too massive for the site. “It’s going to be like another Granada Garage,” said Frangos, referring to the city’s 500-plus space parking lot on Anacapa St. “There’s no sidewalk in front. You are kicking everything into the street.” He also said the building “completely blocks any view of the

mountains.” At one point, Frangos showed a drawing of the proposal to the council and said, “This is what it is going to look like on the street, like a big box store on Milpas street.” Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider said concerns about the project had nothing to do with Fresh & Easy and more about the city process. “I want to welcome Fresh and Easy at some point,” Schneider said. “It will be a great addition to the area and to Milpas Street.”

County that we do not qualify under Article 35, we realized that we would need a variance,” said Robert Bosnak, Sanctuary co-director along with Pacifica Founding President Stephen Aizenstat. “We are back to checking it all from square one. It is unlikely that we will use the El Bosque property since we will require a Conditional Use Permit.” Bosnak says there is community support for his program and he intends to find an appropriate location so services can begin as soon as possible. He stressed that the Sanctuary wants to be viewed as a good neighbor. The Sanctuary’s website, www.sbhsanctuary.com, has now been taken down. Previously it contained several pages of information about the program, although it did not list an address. “Healing Sanctuaries were common in earlier times,” Bosnak says. “By working with the deep psyche, dream therapy in particular, we hope to prove that there is a direct relationship between the healing power of dreams and the body’s power to make itself well.” The Sanctuary is seeking to establish ‘Proof of Concept’, which would facilitate reimbursement of such a treatment regimen by medical insurers, allowing it to expand to other areas.

Mikey’s Medical Dilemma FOR PET’S SAKE

If your pet were injured or became ill, there’d be no question in your mind that you’d seek immediate medical treatment, right? Well, not everyone takes their responsibilities as a pet guardian as seriously as you and I do. Case in point: When Mikey, a sixmonth-old American Staffordshire Terrier was hit by a car recently, his family initially took KAREN LEE him to a veterinarian. An x-ray STEVENS showed that Mikey had suffered a fractured shoulder and injury to his hip and he would need expensive surgery to repair the damage. That’s when his family decided to forego any further treatment. They took their pup back home and callously allowed him to suffer for several weeks before finally relinquishing him to a North County animal shelter. By the time Mikey arrived at the shelter, he was in so much pain that he could barely move. The staff immediately administered medication to relieve his discomfort, but they knew he would ultimately need surgery on his shoulder and hip. Enter C.A.R.E.4Paws, a local nonprofit that recently launched a program to assist low-income families with funds for medical care for their companion animals. Co-founders Isabelle Gullo and her husband Carlos Abitia, agreed to foster Mikey in their home until they could raise the money needed for his surgery. “Mikey is incredibly sweet and happy-go-lucky despite his injuries and the severe pain he must be in at all times,” says Isabelle. “When he’s out of his crate, he bounces around like the puppy he is, sometimes falling over when his right side can’t support him, but he gets right back up to keep playing. He loves our 14-month-old son, Julian, and follows him everywhere. He's already 40 lbs. and will probably grow up to be 80 lbs. Mikey will make a great family dog if given the chance.” Unfortunately, because of indiscriminate breeders and irresponsible “owners,” thousands of unwanted pit bulls, many of them youngsters like Mikey, are put to death in the U.S. every year. It’s no secret that the breed has a lessthan-stellar reputation – much of it unwarranted. Pit bulls were once a popular and beloved breed, so much so that they were known as the “nanny dog” because they were so good with children. Today, the pit bull is often feared and downright despised. In many shelters

across the country, pit bulls are immediately euthanized and never given a second chance at life. C.A.R.E.4Paws is determined that this won’t be Mikey’s fate. “He’s a very deserving dog who needs a chance at a happy, pain-free life,” says Isabelle. “We hope he’ll serve as an ambassador for his breed and inspire change for future generations.” If you would like to make a donation to help with Mikey’s surgery, please send a check, made payable to C.A.R.E.4Paws, and mail it to: PO Box 60524, Santa Barbara, CA 93160-0524.

CITY OF SANTA BARBARA NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS BID NO: 3643

LEGAL NOTICE

Sealed proposals for Bid No. 3643 for the MacKenzie Parking Lot Stormwater Infiltration Project will be received in the Purchasing Office, 310 E. Ortega Street, Santa Barbara, California 93101, until 3:00 P.M., Tuesday, June 21, 2011, to be publicly opened and read at that time. Any bidder who wishes its bid proposal to be considered is responsible for making certain that its bid proposal is actually delivered to said Purchasing Office. Bids shall be addressed to the General Services Manager, Purchasing Office, 310 E. Ortega Street, Santa Barbara, California, and shall be labeled, “MacKenzie Parking Lot Stormwater Infiltration Project, Bid No. 3643". The work includes all labor, material, supervision, plant and equipment necessary to complete a permeable concrete paver stormwater infiltration project at MacKenzie Parking Lot. Each bidder must have a Class A license to complete this work in accordance with the California Business and Professions Code. In addition, each bidder must have completed a permeable concrete paver stormwater infiltration project of similar size and scope within the past three years.

Due to planned events at MacKenzie Park, work within the paved portion of the parking lot must be completed between August 22, 2011 and September 5, 2011. Liquidated damages will be assessed for any avoidable delays.

The plans and specifications for this Project may be viewed online at CyberCopy’s Website (www.cybercopyusa.com) under the City of Santa Barbara Plan Room. To obtain a copy of the plans and specifications for this Project and become a registered plan holder, download a Bid Package Request Form from the City Of Santa Barbara Plan Room site above by clicking on the Project or by calling Alex Gaytan, CyberCopy Shop Manager, at (805) 884-6155. The City’s contact for this project is Brian D’Amour, Supervising Civil Engineer, 805-897-2661. Project Addendum notifications will be issued through Ebidboard.com. Although Ebidboard will fax and/or email all notifications once they are provided contact information, bidders are still responsible for obtaining all addenda from the Ebidboard website or the City’s website at: http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/Business/Purchasing/Projects/. Bidders are hereby notified that this is a federal-aid construction project. The Contractor shall agree to all requirements, conditions, and provisions set forth in the specification book issued for bidding purposes entitled “Proposal and Contract”. Attention is directed to Appendix E and F of the “Proposal and Contract” specification book for grant funding requirements and conditions, as well as documents required to be submitted with this proposal request.

Bidders are hereby notified that pursuant to provisions of Section 1770, et seq., of the Labor Code of the State of California, the Contractor shall pay its employees the general prevailing rate of wages as determined by the Director of the Department of Industrial Relations. In addition, the Contractor shall be responsible for compliance with the requirements of Section 1777.5 of the California Labor Code relating to apprentice public works contracts.

In addition, the wages paid by the Contractor shall meet or exceed the Davis-Bacon federal prevailing wages. Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in Appendix E of the specification book entitled “Proposal and Contract.” Addenda to modify the Federal minimum wage rates, if necessary, will be issued to holders of the “Proposal and Contract” specification books. Future effective general prevailing wage rates, which have been predetermined and are on file with the California Department of Industrial Relations, are referenced but not printed in the general prevailing wage rates. If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and Subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The City of Santa Barbara will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes “helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and Subcontractors, the Contractor and Subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal Minimum wage rate which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question. Per California Civil Code Section 3247, a payment bond in the amount of 100% of the bid total will be required from the successful bidder for bids exceeding $25,000. The bond must be provided within 10 calendar days from notice of award and prior to the performance of any work. The proposal shall be accompanied by a proposal guaranty bond in the sum of at least 10% of the total amount of the proposal, or alternatively by a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Owner in the sum of at least 10% of the total amount of the proposal.

A separate performance bond in the amount of 100% of the bid total will be required from the successful bidder. The bond must be provided within 10 calendar days from the notice to award and prior to the performance of any work.

The City of Santa Barbara hereby notifies all bidders that it will affirmatively insure that in any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement, minority business enterprises will be afforded full opportunity to submit bids in response to this invitation and will not be discriminated against on the grounds of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, political affiliations or beliefs, sex, age, physical disability, medical condition, marital status or pregnancy as set forth hereunder.

Bidders are also advised that this project has Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) requirements. Bidders must demonstrate adequate good faith efforts. Please refer to Appendix F for DBE requirements, including forms that must be included with the bid.

Analysis: California redistricting could unjam budget

California's budget logjam could be broken as early as Friday when a draft of new voting districts gives lawmakers a sense of whether they will be safe bucking party lines. The citizen-drawn redistricting draft, a plan intended to moderate state politics, comes out on Friday and the deadline for lawmakers to approve a budget is the following Wednesday. There has been little movement in recent weeks toward a budget agreement, with Democrats resisting further spending cuts and Republicans opposing tax hike extensions, leaving a roughly $10 billion deficit for the state's next fiscal year, which begins on July 1. Lawmakers with an eye to appealing to voters in new competitive districts, and in a new primary election system, however, may be willing to break with their party's lines in the state capital of Sacramento over the budget. "You might have some legislators who find themselves in districts where they feel more comfortable making compromises," said Allan Hoffenblum, publisher of the California Target Book, which

SENDING MODERATES TO SACRAMENTO

Districts won't be drawn by lawmakers as they were in 2001, which effectively created safe seats for both parties that produced a polarized legislature. Instead, an independent panel will draw districts and what it has revealed so far suggests Democrats and Republicans should expect competitive races. That would mark a sharp break after a decade in which incumbents were reliably re-elected or lawmakers glided between seats in the state Senate and Assembly.

"The goal in 2001 was to achieve the re-election of every legislator and the goal was achieved beyond the wildest expectations," said Bob Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies in Los Angeles. California's demographic change suggests Democrats who control the legislature will continue to do so, but not with themes that would work in liberal coastal and urban areas. Democrats will have to compete for votes in districts taking into account growth in suburbs and Republican-leaning areas in the central part of the state. Republicans face a different demographic challenge. California is becoming less white and Republicans will have to address largely working-class issues of concern to Hispanics who are on track to becoming the state's largest ethnic group. Successful candidates would presumably be more moderate and more inclined to work together more effectively on the state's financial matters. Lawmakers are anxious to see the draft redistricting plan because "everybody realizes it can cut both ways," an aide to a top legislator said.

A false tip from a psychic prompted Texas authorities to swarm a rural home searching for a nonexistent mass grave and up to 30 bodies, including those of dismembered children. A few hours later it was clear the tip was nothing more than a gruesome wild goose chase. "There's no crime scene," Liberty County Judge Craig McNair told reporters as deputies, Texas Rangers and FBI agents wrapped up a fruitless search that gained national media attention.

McNair and Capt. Rex Evans, spokesman for the Liberty County Sheriff's Office, said the woman who twice called in the tip would be investigated for making a false report. Evans said the sheriff's office took the tip seriously because she claimed children's bodies were in the mix. The department called the FBI for help, and the Texas Rangers spent hours obtaining a warrant to search the one-story brick home at a rural intersection near Hardin, about 51 miles east of Houston. A cadav-

er dog also joined the search. But soon after media reports said the sheriff's office confirmed having found bodies, outlets quoted the same agency saying they had no evidence of them. The Houston Chronicle and KHOUTV tracked down the home's occupant, who said he and his wife, both long-haul truck drivers, had left on Sunday en route to Georgia and he knew nothing about dead bodies. "I haven't killed anybody," Joe Bankson told the Chronicle.

tracks California's budget. Democratic Governor Jerry Brown has proposed additional spending cuts and a statewide vote on extending temporary tax increases to raise revenue to close the state's budget shortfall and bolster its finances in future years. Some Democratic lawmakers have been defying him on cuts and suggesting tax extensions be determined in the legislature and not by voters as Brown wants.
