Burglary gang foiled for the second time ■SUZANNE O’CONNELL

suzanne@costablancapeople.com

Tuesday, February 14th - 20th 2017

Theft and robbery from private houses has been on the increase recently with a number of reported break-ins on the La Siesta urbanisation. Although, the identity of the thieves was suspected for a while, the police have needed to collect sufficient evidence to be able to arrest and charge those responsible. Finally, the Guardia Civil have arrested five men and one woman who are suspected of being part of a criminal gang who have been breaking and entering properties around the La Siesta, El Chaparral, San Luis, El Limonar and Paraje Natural areas. A spike in these crimes was noticed from November 2016 onwards. The arrests were made after a detailed investigation which led them to two properties in Torrevieja where they found a number of items which had been reported as stolen following recent robberies. These included three plasma televisions, a laptop, the keys to five cars and a number of electronic items. At the homes of the accused they found a number of tools used to commit the robberies including those that were used to break locks on doors at the

victims’ houses.They also found 140 grams of marihuana and hashish along with scales for weighing the drugs and items used in packing it. Some of these were hidden amongst the toys of a child belonging to one of the detainees. All those detained are Spanish and between 23 and 43 years of age. The woman is also Spanish and 22 years old. It is believed that in total they have carried out at least ten robberies one of which involved an assault on a witness. Those arrested are also being accused of selling drugs. This is the second time, in less than a year, that this gang has been arrested. They are a particularly lethal and active band who are capable of breaking into as many as five premises a night. The first time the gang was discovered, one of them was sent to prison for a few months only to be released in October, following which the gang quickly resumed their criminal activities once again.

Tradespeople can collect the information they need and ask any questions in order that when it comes to the removal, it can go as smoothly as possible without complications.

BITE SIZE NEWS: Continued from page 3 and the sports court. However, it is emphasised that the defects are not a safety risk for the people using the building currently. The recent heavy rains have taken a toll on the structure of the huge sports centre which has always been considered to be a major resource in Torrevieja’s bid to be recognised as a city of sports tourism. The pool has been closed since last June. The centre was originally built in the late nineties and was first opened in 2000 after an investment of more than nine million euros and with a contract awarded to Acciona. It is believed that the structural problems were probably in existence even then. The defects were initially identified in 2012 during a structural inspection. It was noted that there were problems with water drainage then during the PP’s government. During the last year of the PP’s government of Torrevieja two hundred thousand euros had been allocated for the repairing of the swimming pool. However, the work was not undertaken and, it is claimed, this omission has led to the increased cost of repairing the facility now.

Norwegian arrested for crimes against a minor The Norwegian man was arrested in Torrevieja accused of raping a child in Norway. The accused was hiding in his mother’s house and the detention was made under a European arrest order. The man, a 27 year-old, is alleged to have assaulted a 12 year-old girl and faces a fifteen year life sentence. It is reported that the man gained the trust of the girl’s parents who allowed him to spend time with their daughter. It is reported that he repeatedly abused her during the period of 2014 to 2015. The abuses are alleged to have taken place at the child’s house as well as in the accused’s vehicle. Police were informed about the possibility of the man being in Torrevieja and the link to his mother who lives here. They established surveillance over several days in the area and were able to confirm that he was hiding there. The area was then surrounded until it was possible to carry out the arrest on February 2nd when he unusually was seen leaving the house. The Norwegian is now detained at the Central Court.

Repairs to take place to the Municipal theatre The government in Torrevieja has agreed to fund some of the repairs that are needed for the municipal theatre. The green light has been given to health and safety improvements totalling €39,924 Continued on page 6

and the announcement was made by Councillor Fanny Serrano. The works include adjustments to the stairwell and should hopefully allow the issuing of opening licences for the theatre.

Update on Amanecer school The mayor of Torrevieja, José Manuel Dolón, has once more reaffirmed the town council’s commitment to addressing the difficulties of Amanecer school. The school has been in temporary accommodation for the past 12 years and recently suffered heavily during the bad weather. It is currently housed in prefabricated classrooms and recent weather forced its closure due to flooding and concerns about electrics. Although measures were taken to address the recent issues it is noted that the priority must also be to secure, in the long term, new premises for the school. Suzanne O’Connell

HOUSE BUYING GOOD IN SPAIN Spain has been ranked the second-best country in the world for first-time house buyers. A report by UK relocation service MoveHub analysed 33 countries by comparing property prices for 2016 with average salaries to determine the best countries for first-time buyers to get on the property ladder. The United Arab Emirates topped the list, thanks to an almost 8 percent drop in property prices last year. However, Spain saw a 2.2 percent increase in salaries against a 5.75 percent drop in property prices, which put in second place, followed by Greece, Singapore and then Switzerland.

The Councillor responsible for the modernisation of administration, Miguel Angel Fernandez, has presented the municipality’s new mobile application, called “Orihuela in your Hand”. The aim of the app is to facilitate communication between the people of Orihuela and the City Council through all the different services with which the government team can respond to their needs. Miguel Angel Fernandez said: “Orihuela in your hand is a service that encourages participation, transparency and communication in a bi-directional way and in an easy and intuitive way. “The City Council is offering this digital tool for free and it is available on IOS and for Android phones. We have incorporated different services to ensure they are all within easy reach of the

residents of Orihuela.” Councillor Fernández, was accompanied by Antonio Bonilla, a representative of the Línea Ciudadana company, creator of this App and he explained that among its key functions is citizen participation, through which consultations, proposals and incidents can be made, submitted and reported. Miguel Angel Fernandez said: “At the Department of Modernization for Administration we continue to work to continuously expand the services offered by this digital application tool, since we want to include a section for employment offers, as well as another one in which businesses in the city can be more accessible become more involved.” For his part, Bonilla stressed that “Orihuela has been a brave municipality to adopt this new application that brings greater transparency of the institution and it is the first city in the Valencian Community to use it.”

May close to securing expat rights Theresa May is close to securing British expats’ rights in Spain following a meeting with the Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy. The pair discussed the issue during an informal 25-minute meeting and it is believed that May has edged closer to a deal that would guarantee the rights of British expats living in Spain. In the meeting Mariano Rajoy said he wanted an ‘early agreement’ on the issue. The pair discussed the issue during an informal 25-minute meeting at an EU summit in the Maltese capital Valetta. Mrs May has refused to confirm that some 3.2 million EU nationals can stay after March 2019 until she has the same guarantee for the 1.2 million Britons living in other EU countries. Spain has the highest number of British expats, with at least 309,000 living there, although that figure could be much higher as many do not officially register. A Downing Street spokesman said: “They discussed reciprocal rights and both agreed it was an area it would be good to get an early agreement on.” During their talks this morning, Mrs May and Mr Rajoy “agreed that it was important to think about the future relationship as well as the detailed exit arrangement, so that we can give greater certainty for people and businesses who want to live and work in each other’s countries”, No10 added.

Language wars A new law is to be introduced into the Valencia region that will significantly increase the amount of valenciano taught to the detriment of castellano and English. Schools will have to choose between six alternative levels. Each level has a different balance

of languages used between castellano (Spanish), English and valenciano (Valencian). Valenciano is the regional language that those wishing to do specific town hall jobs and professional jobs in the region are required to speak. It is not commonly spoken in most parts of the region. The levels are:

As you can see from this, the reward for a school opting to teach more valenciano is that they can teach more English too. It’s not just about specific teaching of the language but also what other subjects are taught in it. So, in order to increase the amount of valenciano taught, other subjects on the timetable will be delivered using it. Many people feel strongly that the options available are not in the best interests of their children. Many parents believe that the preference for valenciano as a language above that of castellano and English will not prepare their children for life in the 21st century. Some professionals argue that teaching subjects in a language that is not the first language may be only marginally beneficial forincreased language learning and can stop pupils from learning the subject being taught. Each, individual school will have a vote on what option they prefer. With six options It will be difficult for those voting to reach a consensus and if they don’t the decision will be made for them. Many feel that English does not have sufficient standing amongst the options. It is recognised that English remains the international language and as

Castellano

such should be given greater weight. A petition sent out for parents to sign notes that numerous Spanish presidents have been unable to speak English. There have also been some embarrassing examples of high level politicians making mistakes. Castellano, in its own right, is a global language, much more so that valenciano. It is spoken as a native tongue by around 470 million people and many more speak it as a second language. Those protesting feel that the new law is both discriminatory and disadvantageous for their children. Many of whom may not wish to take up job opportunities in the Valencian region. The changes will be introduced slowly with only the first infant class implementing them initially. They will then be rolled out to the remaining infant classes. The law will only apply to all age groups by the year 2023. Protesters are already collecting signatures on petitions. Many feel strongly about this legislation and we are likely to see opposition continuing and increasing within the coming months. Suzanne O’Connell

13 life Sentences for Brit arrested in Santa Pola T

he 70 year old Briton detained last year in Santa Pola and extradited back home having sexually abused more than 30 children in Britain and Thailand has been condemned in the London courts to 13 life sentences. According to a statement from the British Embassy in Madrid, Mark Frost, also known as Andrew Tracy, has been found guilty of the crimes of rape, promoting illicit sexual activities with children, and taking indecent photos of minors, among other offences. The statement noted the Central Criminal Court in London has just announced the sentence, which was handed down by Judge Mark Lucraft QC Chief Coroner of England and Wales, who described the paedophile’s action as ‘extremely shocking’. During the case, last week, the condemned admitted to having abused children for 25 years, and accepted the assumption that he had committed 45 crimes. According to Judge Lucraft he remains a danger to society and to children and so a minimum term of 16 years in prison was recommended. The man was arrested by the Guardia Civil on Santa Pola on 17th

He was also suspected for having abused many boys and girls during his time as a teacher in the UK during the 1970s to 1990s, and so the NCA called for his victims to come forward. “International frontiers are not a barrier to Justice and this sentence has achieved thanks to meticulous collaboration between the Crown Prosecuting Service, National Crime Agency in coordinating with European and Thailand prosecutors” so noted the specialist prosecutor in the Crown Prosecution Service, Ruona Iguyovwe, according to the statement from the British Embassy. Simon Manley also expressed his congratulations for this cross border Anglo-Hispanic collaboration.

Buzzard Residents complain rescued in about construction Torrevieja Acommon buzzard or Aguila Ratonera was found trapped in an irrigation channel at a farm in Sierra Escalona on Thursday afternoon, the 9th February. It is believed that there are only thirty pairs of these buzzards currently nesting in the Sierra Escalona and it is part of one of the most important colonies in the country. The trapped bird was foundon a farm

The local neighbourhood association San Miguel Arcángel has approached the municipal government to request its intervention to minimise the impact of the construction of new residential houses on the urbanisation La Balsa in Mirador de San Miguel. According to the association, the builder has piled tons of dirt and debris literally at the door of residents homes for several months, causing inconvenience and unnecessary

the developer has a free hand to do whatever it chooses without a care or concern and certainly, without hindrance. These facts were denounced by residents and the neighbourhood association last summer unsuccessfully and since then the tons of waste have grown continuously in parallel with the increase in construction activity. The neighbourhood association said: “We have requested that the municipal Eyesore on the doorstep

The farmer whose property the bird was trapped on, also did his best to set it free. The captive was spotted when a local company were doing work in the area and could see what had happened. Being aware of who owned the land, they were able to contact the necessary people to put the rescue into operation. It is believed that the buzzard had become trapped whilst in search of prey. The bird has been left with an injured wing and is currently being cared for in a recovery centre following its rescue. Suzanne O’Connell

The City Council has ignored their continuous complaints for months; they always fall on deaf ears. In the meantime, it seems that

government fulfills its mediating role and defends the interest of its residents. The disdain, maltreatment and helplessness in which the residents of our urbanisations live in cases like this is not the best promotion nor the ideal business card of a municipality that has tourism as one of its main economic sources.” Mireille Toddington

Residents call for Mayor to resign ■ MIREILLE TODDINGTON mireille@costablancapeople.com

Following hot on the heels of the decision by the criminal court in Orihuela to defer the trial of San Fulgencio Mayor Carlos Ramirez, local residents are calling for him to resign or be removed from public office until the case is over. It was decided last week that the trial would be deferred from April this year until September, when the Mayor will finally face charges of ‘administrative prevarication’ for the payment of services. The charges specifically relate to irregularities in the awarding of sports contracts totalling some €190,000 over a number of years, money awarded to run numerous sports schools in the municipality. Also implicated in the scandal is the president of the sports body and the previous Councillor for Sports. The Anti-Corruption Prosecutor is requesting that Ramírez is awarded 9 years of disqualification from public office. However, the Mayor has reiterated on several occasions his innocence and the fact that he has the support of his party. Others however, are not so supportive and many are horrified that

Carlos Ramirez is still ‘managing’ public funds and tax payers’ hard earned money, despite standing trial for misappropriation of funds. The Asociación Vecinal MUNA and its members contacted the Costa Blanca People recently and said that they ‘have no trust and confidence in the current Mayor of San Fulgencio, Carlos Ramirez Sansano’. The Association Secretary explained that the association has requested in writing to the President of PP in Alicante, the resignation of the Mayor and his deputy Susana Ortuňo Ramirez – a cousin of the Mayor - who we believe has knowledge of the facts and has not taken any action to prevent or report the offences. The PP in Alicante has replied to the correspondence and says it is not prepared to ask for his resignation until the Mayor is convicted at court, which the Association believes could take up to 7 years for a final decision to be reached. The Asociación Vecinal MUNA said: “We realise the Mayor is innocent until proven guilty, but if this had been a Bank Manager, employee or Civil Servant who was charged with an offence of a similar nature waiting a court appearance they would be suspended from their position until after the final court verdict. With the allegation of misuse of public funds the residents are now concerned that

he is still in the position as Mayor, dealing with their taxes and money for the up keep of San Fulgencio and the Urbanisation. “We again ask that the Mayor and his deputy resign or be suspended from their position until the final court decision.”

Enough Carlos Ramirez is no stranger to court proceedings having begun this legal journey in 2013. In fact he was reelected in 2015, holding on to his slim majority, despite already being under the investigation of the Judicial authorities. The Partido Independiente Por Las Nacionalidedes (PIPN) in San Fulgencio is also calling for his immediate resignation. The party said in a statement: “We have not asked for his resignation until now as a date for the trial had not been set. It is unacceptable that the Partido Popular at provincial level isn’t willing to make a statement or act on this issue, when it has done in other municipalities for much less. Carlos Ramirez states that he has the full support of his party. We ask ourselves, when will they smack the table, say ‘enough’ and do what they stated they would do with all PP politicians who are indicted in any legal case?”

Orihuela dogs have their day supported by an awareness media campaign of newspaper, radio and TV coverage and finally the council looked again at its decision. ASOKA was concerned that the paperwork and figures had not all been taken into consideration and requested that the decision to be reconsidered taking all the facts into account. Nick Moore, volunteer at ASOKA said: “We’re relieved that the decision went our way and we have a new 2 year contract renewable after that period of time. ASOKA’s mission has always been to re-home and care for all abandoned animals in our area. We feed and treat them if they’re ill, but this is obviously not what a “for profit” company would bother to do. “We are aware though that the work continues across Spain to get a ‘zero kill policy’ in every Animal Pound or Perrera. Centres such as Los Infiernos, near Murcia, found itself in an identical situation to ours but lost its battle to continue running its centre. We need Volunteers celebrate to shame those Town Halls that claimed that the zero-kill animal Association allow did not have sufficient financial backing to businesses to operate the centre. This claim was made run these despite the facts that ASOKA had centres for continuously survived after the Town Hall profit and let had regularly been months behind with its them know that payments to the animal charity during the Waiting for a new home in 2017 it is previous contract. barbaric that abandoned animals are treated so The idea of placing an animal pound in the badly.” hands of a profit-making business seems ASOKA currently houses 160 dogs, 100 cats, foolhardy, let alone a waste management 8 pigs, 2 goats, 2 ponies and 3 pigeons. If you’re company that has no links to animal care or interested in adoption, fostering or welfare. The decision resulted in a considerable volunteering then please email the centre on: backlash, and a very impressive online petition gathered more than 6,000 signatures. This was voluntariosasoka@gmail.com Orihuela animal lovers can finally breathe a sigh of relief now that the Partido Popular (PP) Town Hall has reversed its decision to award the contract for the Animal Protection Centre, based in San Bartolome, to a Waste Disposal Company from Murcia.

WEEKLY EURO UPDATE When the European Central Bank president attended the European Parliament's economic affairs committee Mario Draghi's observations were in line with what could have been expected. The ECB is not, as alleged by the White House, massaging the euro lower to satisfy Germany. The euro is not about to break up: it is "irreversible". Yet the scandal surrounding French presidential candidate François Fillon could leave the way open for the Front National's Marine Le Pen to take over the Élysée Palace and one of her campaign pledges is to take France out of the single currency. Another existential risk is the resurfacing of the long-running three-way squabble about Greece's bailout. There is so far no sign of compromise between Athens, the country's EU creditors and the IMF. The dollar improved its position among the major currencies, beating sterling into

second place by a fifth of a cent and taking a cent off the euro. Its upward progress against the euro was fairly steady as the single currency was rattled by political turmoil surrounding the French presidential election and the resurfacing of the Greek debt crisis. The dollar's movement against sterling was more erratic. A sharp and unexplained sell-off of the pound was followed in short order by an equally sharp rebound after MPC member Kristin Forbes said the economy "could soon suggest an increase in the Bank Rate". For its part the dollar headed into the weekend on a high note after a couple of 'googlies' from the president. With one he capitulated to Beijing, telling President Xi that he does, after all, recognise the "one China" policy. In the other he promised a "phenomenal" announcement about tax in the next couple of weeks.

Better Orihuela Costa beaches The Councillor for Tourism, Sofía Álvarez, and the Councillor for Beaches, Luisa Boné recently announced the results of the satisfaction survey undertaken with beach-goers across Orihuela Costa in 2016. The survey is commissioned each year by the Department of Tourism, as it is a pre-requisite for the evaluation and giving of the Q quality awards. The results of the study, which was conducted from 16th June to 30th September, 2016, shows an improvement of more than 6 points in comparison to the previous year. Councillor Alvarez said she was delighted that those using the beaches, whether tourists or residents, are now more satisfied with the beaches than in 2015. Likewise, the study, carried out with 1,500 people on all beaches across the Costa, shows an overall result in 2016 of 79.61 percent satisfaction, compared to 73.44 percent in 2015 and 78.15 percent in 2014. This, say the councillors, shows that there is a ‘clear trend towards improvement’ according to the opinions of those people that use them most. It is also worth noting that foreign users have rated the beaches that have the Q Quality mark with a higher score than those that do not.

Among the beaches that have increased their appreciation during this past year are: Cala Bosque, Cala Capitan, Aguamarina Beach and Cala Mosca. The Councillor for Beaches also added that the

police surveillance scored 93.62 percent and the flag service 90.29 percent. On the other hand, Councillor Boné also detailed some of the services that needed improvement according to the

Luisa Bone and Sophia Alvarez

comprehensive report gives the government team a diagnosis on what aspects it can improve on for the next season in order to provide a better service to users. In terms of results given to specific attributes, customer service received a total score of 73.16 percent, while information services we rated at 86.56 percent, the seasonal services 81.10 percent and maintenance and cleaning 84.07 percent. Safety services such as first aid and

issues raised by the users surveyed, among them is the increase in the number of football/volleyball areas, improvements in accessibility to Cala Mosca beach, an increased arena at Punta Prima. The Councillors concluded by assuring local residents that they will ‘continue working to maintain the satisfaction of users, both tourists and residents alike, and to improve these scores next year’.

Electromar controversy ■ SUZANNE O’CONNELL suzanne@costablancapeople.com

Once more the Electromar Festival is at the centre of controversy. This popular festival seems to be a focus for debate every year. The festival usually takes place during July in the Parque Antonio Soria in Torrevieja. It hasn’t always been held here and was originally in Murcia. The mayor, José Manuel Dolón is against the festival taking place this year along with the councillor representing APTCe (Alternativa de Popular Torrevieja) Domingo Soler. Putting forward arguments the against it, the explains mayor how many local and people are businesses opposed to it because of the problems it causes. Following last year’s festival complaints were lodged and the mayor is keen to focus on events and activities that bring benefit to the town rather than generating problems. Councillor Soler also argues that those responsible for organising the event do not put in the necessary effort to make sure it doesn’t disrupt local people and businesses. Soler would prefer to see events taking place that can be sustained throughout the year and don’t create difficulties for public services and annoy people. The mayor points out that the festival only took place in 2015 because the plans had already been laid out by the previous PP

government and it would have been difficult to have stopped it going ahead at that stage. In 2016 it took place against the better judgement of the mayor. Last year’s event came under the jurisdiction of Alejandro Blanco as councillor for culture from Sueña Torrevieja. He, unlike Councillor Soler, is no longer part of the town hall government as he left the ruling council in October. The mayor is intending to hold a press conference about this in which he will explain that the event generates lots of noise and that there are problems with rubbish and security. He is expected to point out that a dance festival like this could be a at possibility another time of the year but that the congregation of people 10,000 during the busy summer season is not ideal. However, many young people (and older) who are attracted to this event will be left disappointed by the decision. They may wonder what the exciting cultural and festive events will be that will replace it and why they should be denied something slightly out of the ordinary that only takes place on one day a year. There may also be other issues to resolve including whether there remains a commitment to hosting the event as a result of a four-year contract. There will also be those who wonder whether the location of the new market in this area isn’t another reason why the festival is to be cancelled this year. Councillors may not wish a flagship market only just opened to be compromised by an event such as this.

Homes & Gardens

Many homes in Spain have a solarium - and apart from being a lovely place to sunbathe, it offers a great location for recreation, entertaining, and as an additional outdoor living space for the building's residents. Add some plants and you have a wonderful oasis.

T

he roof garden has a long history - humans have grown plants atop structures since antiquity. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were apparently roof gardens, built over an arcaded palace in ascending terraces. Water was raised by pump - and if you visit Lorca Castle, you will see, beautifully preserved, the same system was employed there to raise water to the garrison. Your solarium does not present the same problems, but watering is a consideration unless you want to drag heavy watering cans up the steps. So a plumbed in tap is a useful start. Your roof garden may include planters, plants, dining and lounging furniture, outdoor structures such as pergolas and sheds, and automated irrigation and lighting systems. However, the first important consideration is whether your sunroof is strong enough to bear the weight of the things you plan to put there! You don’t want it to cause damage to the house structure and it may be wise to keep really large, heavy pots around the edge where the roof support is the strongest. The flooring provided by most builders is tile - and that is fine, but wooden decking gives the area a

completely different character. It does not get so hot under bare feet and is less dazzling in bright sunlight. When choosing plants, keep in mind that, being higher up, they are exposed to the wind and this has a very dehydrating effect on the plants and of course, in the summer it is extremely hot. An automated irrigation system is strongly recommended and will save you a lot of work. Potted plants always need lots more water than those planted in the ground. They also need feeding more regularly as they are unable to spread their roots out to find nutrients. A windbreak is usually a necessity to protect you from the prevailing wind and provide some privacy. A living screen in big tubs, such as bamboo or conifers, is ideal for this: It is not like a solid fence, shutting you in and the weight of the tubs will keep it firmly anchored. A pergola is a lovely addition to provide shade and support climbers - but it need to be anchored firmly. Preferably to the walls - holes drilled into flat roofs tend to cause leaks! You can grow all sorts of climbers up and around it. Bougainvillea loves to be in a confined pot and flowers best when fairly pot bound, but ivies, bignonia and even a grapevine

CostaBlancaPeople 14th-20th February 2017

would do very well scrambling over it. Groups of similar pots look great and in this climate, cacti and succulents are the perfect candidates to enjoy the full sunlight on the roof. And herbs such as Rosemary and Lavender will flourish with very little attention (and smell lovely as you brush past, too). Standard plants of any kind look lovely and add height to your arrangement. Almost any plant can be trained to a standard shape; but bay, bottle brush, roses, ficus and hibiscus are popular choices. Some potted geraniums and other heat loving flowers will add colour, while palms, cicas, strelitzias, etc. provide an instant tropical look.

If you are fortunate enough to have a large roof garden, you might consider screening it with roomlike spaces using robust trellis; this adds additional wind protection and makes the area seem even larger. And of course the roof is a natural place for a stone barbeque because the smoke doesn’t blow into the house! So, if your sun roof is a bare, sterile place except for a sun lounger and an umbrella - think how easy it would be to turn it into a delightful, outdoor room in which to enjoy the sunshine or the long summer evenings in good friends’ company… Marc Vijverberg

Visit HOUSTON with Vivalia Travel Houston is a global city, with strengths in business, international trade, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, education, medicine, and research.

H

ouston is a major American metropolis, it is the most populous city in Texas and the fourthmost populous city in the United States after Chicago, located in Southeast Texas near the Gulf of Mexico. With a census-estimated 2014 population of 2.239 million[5] within an area of 667 square miles (1,730 km2),[6] it also is the largest city in the Southern United States. It is the principal city of Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land, which is the fifth-most populated metropolitan area in the United States of America. Houston's economy has a broad industrial base in energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation. Leading in health care sectors and building oilfield equipment, only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters within its city limits. The Port of Houston ranks first in the United States in international waterborne tonnage handled and second in total cargo tonnage handled. Nicknamed the "Space City", Houston is a global city, with strengths in business, international trade, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, education, medicine, and research. The city has a population from various ethnic and religious backgrounds and a large and growing international community. Houston is the most diverse city in Texas and has been described as the most diverse in the United States. It is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits, which attract more than 7 million visitors a year to the Museum District. Houston has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theater District and offers year-round resident companies in all major performing arts.

Cityscape Houston was incorporated in 1837 under the ward system of representation. The ward designation is the progenitor of the 11 current-day geographically oriented Houston City Council districts. Locations in Houston are generally classified as either being inside or outside the Interstate 610 Loop. The inside encompasses the central business district and many residential neighborhoods that antedate World War II. More recently, high-density residential areas have been developed within the loop. The city's outlying areas, suburbs, and enclaves are located outside of the loop. Beltway 8 encircles the city another 5 miles (8.0 km) farther out.

Though Houston is the largest city in the United States without formal zoning regulations, it has developed similarly to other Sun Belt cities because the city's land use regulations and legal covenants have played a similar role. Regulations include mandatory lot size for single-family houses and requirements that parking be available to tenants and customers. Such restrictions have had mixed results. Though some[71] have blamed the city's low density, urban sprawl, and lack of pedestrian-friendliness on these policies, the city's land use has also been credited with having significant affordable housing, sparing Houston the worst effects of the 2008 real estate crisis. The city issued 42,697 building permits in 2008 and was ranked first in the list of healthiest housing markets for 2009.

Tourism and recreation The Theater District is a 17-block area in the center of downtown Houston that is home to the Bayou Place entertainment complex, restaurants, movies, plazas, and parks. Bayou Place is a large multilevel building containing full-service restaurants, bars, live music, billiards, and Sundance Cinema. The Bayou Music Center stages live concerts, stage plays, and stand-up comedy. Space Center Houston is the official visitors' center of NASA's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. The Space Center has many interactive exhibits including moon rocks, a shuttle simulator, and presentations about the history of NASA's manned space flight program. Other tourist attractions include the Galleria (Texas's largest shopping mall, located in the Uptown District), Old Market Square, the Downtown Aquarium, and Sam Houston Race Park. Of worthy mention are Houston's current Chinatown and the Mahatma Gandhi District. Both areas offer a picturesque view of Houston's multicultural makeup. Restaurants, bakeries, traditional-clothing boutiques, and specialty shops can be found in both areas. Houston is home to 337 parks, including Hermann Park, Terry Hershey Park, Lake Houston Park, Memorial Park, Tranquility Park, Sesquicentennial Park, Discovery Green, and Sam Houston Park. Within Hermann Park are the Houston Zoo and the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Sam Houston Park contains restored and reconstructed homes which were originally built between 1823 and 1905. A proposal has been made to open the city's first botanic garden at Herman Brown Park.

Where there is a will, there is a wish

M

aking a will is a very sobering thought because you know, as you give the instructions, that you won’t have any hand act or part in its execution - as it only comes into play on your death. Therefore, drawing up a will becomes a time of reflection and a prime reminder of our own mortality. This is probably why so many people, who should have it done, put one of life’s most important acts on the long finger and far too many people die in this country without having made any will. Everybody should make a will, no matter how little they feel they have to leave: ndeed I feel it is a good law in those countries where the making of a will is compulsory and in Spain, for example, when a non-resident buys property, Spanish law requires that the property owner makes a will as a matter of course. The making of a will is not only about money, land or property. It is a declaration of all your final wishes and how you would like things to be handled when you are gone. Almost everyone has some worldly possessions which have to be disposed of after their departure. No matter how modest these belongings are, somebody will have to sort

out what-goes-where after your death and you are the right person to do this. I know it can be awful just thinking about it, but drawing up a will won’t cause you to die any sooner and then it’s done! Your will can specify what kind of funeral you would like, which priest you want to officiate, the music and where you want

to be buried. You can make as many wills and as often as you like, because each new will cancels out all previous ones. Times and circumstances change and the will reflects your thinking and wishes at that time and those left behind will know what you want to do. How often have you heard friends and family remark; “Ah this

is what Jim would have wanted” or “Jim would approve of this” when, if Jim had written it down in his will, nobody would have to guess what Jim might have liked. A will is a record of your wishes and instructions and you can write anything you like into it. To my mind it is downright irresponsible of any person with children not to make a will because, unlike a spouse, children do not have any absolute right to their parent’s estate. You should not wait until you get ‘old’ either; I think 18 is probably the minimum age you need to be and other than that, it is never too young – and don’t worry if you get married more than once, because a will is automatically revoked when you remarry! It is clear that the will is a most important document which ensures that your affairs will be properly administered after your day, so it is vital that you obtain specialised advice from a solicitor whom you have total confidence in. You can decide beforehand, perhaps even in consultation with your family, what you want to put in the will. Choose whoever you would like to act as executor of your estate. The executor is responsible for obtaining probate and overseeing that all your wishes are carried out. Two independent witnesses are required to witness your signature, neither of whom can be a beneficiary, nor do they need to know

what’s in your will: In fact, if you prefer it that way, nobody only your trusted solicitor needs to know what the will contains; but remember, if the original document gets lost or burned, it is revoked – no matter how many people can swear as to what it contained. It goes without saying that no will can exclude the rights of spouses or children and it must be signed at the end. Even with properly drawn up wills family squabbles can occur afterwards: Human nature and greed being what it is, many a will finishes up being tested in court. For this reason, it is important that your will is written in simple, straightforward terms. Another tricky hurdle for some of us is the requirement to “be of sound mind” at the time of making the will and also a will can be contested on the grounds of “undue influence” having been brought to bear on the person making the will. If you fall out with the wife and give away money or property before you die, with the intention of depriving her of her legal right, whoever you give the benefit to will become a debtor to your estate and have to pay back the money. So what happens if once again you ignore the advice of this column and find yourself dead without making a will? A person who dies without making a will is deemed to have died “intestate”. If you die intestate this means

that everything you own is distributed by an administrator. This will take more time and more of your assets will finish up in the coffers of The Revenue, especially through higher inheritance tax. Taxes will be paid first and then after debts and expenses are cleared, the remainder will be distributed in accordance with the law. If you have a spouse and no children, he, or she, gets the entire estate. In the case of a spouse and children, the spouse gets two-thirds and the remaining one-third is divided equally among the children. If one of your children has died first, their share goes to their children and so on. Simply stated; your estate is divided equally between the nearest equal relationship and if the deceased has no will and no relatives, the estate goes to The State. I hope all this gives you food for thought and hopefully gives you a spurt towards making that important move if you have not already done so.

Generally speaking, duty is what we expect of others

MARKET UPDATE

A

rise in second hand home sale prices, compared to the previous year, according to statistics! How does that sound? Exactly the type of news we all love to hear! 2016 Can now be recognized as, “the year of revival!” With an encouraging end to the year and now into the second month of 2017, this is proving that there are still, many buyers choosing to purchase property in Spain. This year, the indicators that control the state of the housing market, have registered a double-digit growth rate that has not been seen for a very long time, especially after nine years of continued declines in the price of second hand housing, it’s very encouraging to see such recorded figures. The price of housing in Spain is stabilizing and, as a consequence, the Real Estate Index fluctuated throughout 2016 and reached 1,649 Euros/m2 in December. In general, house prices in 2016 fell slightly, however the last three months of the year showed three consecutive increases, with year on year rises above 1%. But the recovery we are witnessing as a whole, will be slow, moderate, and very uneven. Even with that in mind, it is expected to be constant, which will continue to make directive advances within the sector. At the end of 2016, the Balearic Islands was the community with the highest prices (8%), followed by the Canary Islands (7.8%), Andalucia (3.1%), Comunitat Valenciana, Madrid and Catalunya, which increased by 2.2%. While in 2013 the number of provinces, with double digit year on year falls was 16, in 2014 there were three provinces, in 2015 two provinces and encouragingly in 2016, no province registered double digit falls. These ranged from 0.5% in Murcia to 6.8% in La Rioja. According to the 2016 ranking, Guipúzcoa was the most expensive province, registering a price of 2,989 Euros per square metre, 81.2% more than the national average of 1,649 Euros/m2, followed by Vizcaya - 2,734 Euros/m2,

Barcelona - 2,422 Euros/m2, and Madrid at 2,255 Euros/m2. At the end of 2016, no province had a price higher than 3,000 Euros/m2, however in 2015, Guipúzcoa was the only province that did exceed that figure! So you can see with these statistics, as long as you’re pricing your property correctly, it will sell! There are still many great buyers out there, that are looking to turn their dreams into reality, and want to make that purchase before the summer. If you’re serious about selling, come to the market now. The longer you leave it, the more houses you’ll be competing with!

THE AFTERLIFE This week I received a query from Jan ‐ who wants to know where our loved ones go to when they pass to spirit. Hola Alison, I wondered if you could answer a question I have been thinking about lately. I have heard the expression 'The Afterlife' and wondered if this term indicates what it says ­ is there really a life after death? And if so, what is it like? And what experiences have you had from people in spirit? Many thanks. Jan Harris.

LOVED ONES IN SPIRIT So much has been written in the past about what people see at their time of passing. You may have heard family members saying that their loved one was in a calm state of being, and held their hand out to someone, or had a smile on their face. When working on the show Rescue Mediums, we had to communicate with spirits who were stuck and once we gained more knowledge about their earthly life and knew

entertaining for those who don't get a message as those who do! If your loved one had a fabulous sense of humour on the earth plane, this is usually one of the things that are evident to me the very second that they step forward! Just as we are unique, so are our loved ones in spirit, so no two are the same. Some of the information can sound bizarre, but it will come in, in some way. Here is one of the more recent testimonials I have received. You will see that at first, the person receiving the messages may not have understood it at first, but as time went on, all became clear... "Hi Alison, l just wanted to tell you how much we had enjoyed last night and to give you a little more confirmation on how accurate you were. You spoke to my husband concerning his ex father in law, mentioning his children's names, including Annie, my husband's ex wife. You then mentioned my husband's father (still on earth plane) as he was renowned for cracking walnuts with his teeth. You asked if there was a link between them, (other than that they knew of each other l guess) my husband couldn't think of one but there is, Annie has been in touch recently with Steve’s father (my father in law) the nut cracker, and they are meeting up on occasion to share their love of gardening! We knew we would be hearing something from the ‘other side’ as when Steph and l were getting ready to leave yesterday the kettle switched itself on! Steve's mum Margaret, (the rat) died on a Thursday and anything that goes bang or is unusual on Thursdays we always say is her, so it was lovely when you told us about a rat you pictured as we knew it was her. You are amazing, look forward to seeing you again. Take care. Kay x 670

Dear Jan Wow, what a question! As a Clairvoyant Medium, I converse with the spirit world so I know without a doubt that there definitely is life after death and that the term Afterlife is as it says. I receive many messages for people whether they are having a private reading with me, are in an audience, or, it could be the indication of a stuck spirit in a house where there is a lot of activity and I am called in to 'rescue' the spirit who is residing between two worlds. One thing is for certain, that no‐one on the earth plane will know exactly what the afterlife is like, until we walk our own path of light to the other side. Even a Medium cannot tell you exactly what the next life will be like and if we did, I don't feel there would be any lessons to learn, which is what life is all about ‐ learning and growing from life experiences whether

good or bad. I have written a short article below which may give you some comfort in knowing that your loved ones exist on a different vibration ‐ one filled with pure love. I hope this goes some way to answering your question. With many blessings, Alison

they were ready to go to the light, it was our aim was to bring forward a loved one from spirit to guide them over. I have had many, many experiences of this ‐ and have seen the most amazing, and totally beautiful images of loved ones stepping forward in spirit in the light, as they welcomed and guided their loved one to the afterlife. What have gleaned over the years when working with spirit is that they don't want us to worry about them. They are in a place of wonder ‐ a place that is full of unconditional love and serenity where negative emotions such as anger, hate, jealousy, worry etc do not exist. Each spirit that comes through is different ‐ Some have me and my client howling with laughter. Some have such infinite love and I can feel it so very deeply that we are both in tears, but they are tears of joy that this wonderful being is no longer suffering in pain or discomfort. I have had spirit dictate poems to me describing what they see (vivid colours) ‐ what they feel (total peace) and how their love shines on... Very often, spirit will give me predictions of things coming in around their loved ones on the earth plane. This information is shared with me even before my client arrives for their appointment. Spirit can see into the future ‐ for there are no restrictions like time in the Spirit World, as the vibration in which they exist is infinite. When doing platform work, it's a way of working again, in a different way, but spirit come through nevertheless. It just means that not all the audience members will get a message. However, when spirit do come forward it is often as mind blowing and

Bar bans customers Guardia Civil combs San Isidro murder scene in pyjamas A bar in Malaga has caused a stir by banning customers wearing pyjamas. The bar has banned pyjamas and dressing gowns from its premises, citing ‘hygiene reasons’. A sign on the door reads: “No admittance in pyjamas or dressing gowns. Sorry for the inconvenience.” This sign has been on display outside Los Monaguillos bar on Calle Mármoles in Malaga for the last two weeks. “Hygiene is the main reason,” say staff, adding that it is quite normal to see customers go in wearing nightclothes. They say that while a ban on swimwear and entering shirtless in the summer was widely accepted, they felt this latest measure was necessary given the extent that local residents were starting to wear pyjamas outdoors. “Some local businesses are taking much more serious measures, even reporting them,” said a member of staff. Juan Sánchez, a regular at the bar, said: “Going out in public wearing pyjamas doesn't seem right to me. It's very vulgar; it doesn't create a nice feeling around the area.” So how common is it? “About one in twenty come to buy bread in a dressing gown,” said a baker

in the area, while an employee in the local branch of Día said: “Some come in jeans, some come in pyjamas – it’s normal.” Other bars in the area, including El Paponazo and Cafetería Guadalmedina have also reported a significant percentage of people wearing house clothes around the neighbourhood. Many visitors to the bar come from the

nearby Málaga Centro hotel and tourists have asked staff if there's a hospital close-by or if the clothes the people are wearing are the same as those they sleep in. “This doesn't create a good image. This doesn't happen in all of Malaga – it’s just very widespread in this part of the town.” In Calle Mármoles, there are several people wearing the controversial attire. Several refused to speak, but one woman, wearing slippers and a dressing gown with a bear pattern across it, told a local newspaper: “I've been running around doing errands and just flung this on. It’s comfortable, quick to put on and, to be honest, I don’t care what anyone else thinks of it.” Ever since a Spanish newspaper broke the story, the bar has become the centre of a media storm. “It's been nonstop these last few days”, said one employee. Although it appears that business has not been too adversely affected, with business being ‘more or less the same’. Staff reported that some people ‘have changed their clothes while others have actually stopped coming altogether’.

Specialist Criminology Agents are searching a finca in San Isidro, Cartagena, where a Lithuanian man was murdered. Officers are conducting a hand-by-hand investigation at the premises, which the victim shared with three other men. The entrance, all the rooms, the basement and the roof terrace are all being combed for clues or evidence of torture or murder. The finca was being scoured after the body of a tortured and murdered 40-year-old Lithuanian was discovered last Monday. The specialists along with experts on homicides are working hard to establish a theory regarding the crime. The body was spotted by a lorry driver who noted in the morning that someone was sunbathing and on his return journey the body was still there. Awaiting the result of the autopsy from the Legal Medicine Institute, both the Guardia Civil and the judge in the Instruction Court 1 in Cartagena are waiting to see how the results will influence the investigation, which is currently moving in many directions. First indications are that the man from Eastern Europe died as a consequence of a beating from a mafia-type organisation in a

settling of scores. They left him semi-naked, face bloodied, two hands amputated, and the body wrapped up in plastic tied up with a bridle to a pergola on the solarium. Among other questions, the agents want to reconstruct the last hours of his life, given he had been living in Cartagena for more than a year in the rented property, owned by a doctor who lives in Madrid, with three other men. According to the latest theory, the Lithuanian was being used as a lookout and a new suspect emerged regarding a regular male visitor who arrived in an open top car. The house, situated in the hamlet of El Castillejo, offered the renters discretion, and was self sufficient for utilities. The occupants of the property, surrounded by olive trees, had placed a covered fence outside on the boundary so as to gain more privacy. Despite such precautions, last summer people who were

passing by saw marihuana plants growing on the property, and this could shed light on the crime, in terms of its relation to drug trafficking and the consequential settling of scores. During last Monday afternoon’s search, the detectives

took photos of the crime scene and were searching the nearby fields and an orchard of almond trees for evidence. The only witness is the lorry driver who warned the authorities, and who is now under investigation to establish exactly who he has been in contact while in Spain. The investigations are being coordinated by the Murcia Region and Madrid, which have confirmed the arrests of the other tenants of the house, and said the suspects should be put before the courts as soon as possible.

CAM bank widow's son-in-law arrested over her murder One of the sons-in-law of the CAM bank chairman’s widow has been arrested in connection with her sudden death inside her car two months ago. Married to the deceased’s youngest daughter, the accused holds a gun licence and practises target-shooting as a sport. María del Carmen Martínez, 72, was shot at close range on the forecourt of Novocar, the motor dealership in Alicante owned by the family empire. She had gone to pick up her Porsche Cayenne after a service, and was due to meet her notary later for issues in connection with the network of companies she owned after the death of her husband, Vicente Sala, who used to be head of the now-defunct Caja de Ahorros del Mediterráneo (CAM Bank). The Sala-Martínez firms were to have been passed to her son upon her death, which her daughters were apparently not happy about. Vicente Sala had set up his emporium from a rubber company which had branched out into

several Latin American countries, but in his later years had focused mainly on motor and construction. Police had always considered María del Carmen's murder was an inside job, and have interviewed her son, three daughters and their respective spouses, as well as domestic staff, employees and everyone linked to the business. Officers did not rule out, at first, that someone close to the victim had hired a professional hitman. Last Wednesday morning at around 8.30am, police surrounded all the country lanes leading to the family estate, where Vicente's and María del Carmen's mansion and the four villas belonging to their adult children are situated. A raid on the youngest daughter’s and her husband’s property culminated in the latter’s arrest at 1.30pm, after which officers conducted further searches at he Novocar premises.

TASHA LYNCH APPEAL FUND Paul Cunningham Nurses Charity has been attending to the nursing care of a very brave and positive young lady, Tasha Lynch for the past four months. Tasha, sadly at the age of 23, is suffering two very rare viruses, Myasthenia Gravis and Transverse Myelitis. With Myasthenia Gravis, the immune system blocks the communication between nerves and the muscles. Both these incurable diseases attack the autoimmune system by attacking its own body and healthy tissue and in simple terms the nerves are not telling the muscles what to do. This then can lead to issues with mobility, eating, swallowing breathing and speaking. Tasha is currently being fed through a tube and also has a tracheostomy which allows her to breathe. Tasha has these long term illnesses, and has now been discharged from the hospital and will require a far more prolonged and specialist nursing care than is normally required with our other patients. The charity does not normally deal with long term care. With this in mind we are appealing to the general public to help raise much

needed funds to enable PCN to continue with Tasha’s particular nursing costs. A spokesperson for PCN revealed, “We have added the Tasha Appeal collection tins within our shops in Quesada, La Marina, Playa Flamenca

and Almoradi. We will also be holding events in Tasha’s name to help raise some extra funding, which is required urgently. Should you wish to donate to this very special lady, please drop by to one our shops. Or telephone the office on 966 790 363 to make your donation, or organise an event.” PCN has already prepared two special events for the Tasha appeal. The first will be a Paul Cunningham Event at The Club, Quesada on 18th February with Abba Elite and will have the Tasha Appeal collection tins available for all who wish to donate. Should you wish to reserve a seat for this event, please telephone the Club on 966 717 028. The second event organised will be a charity fun quiz night on March 28th at MJs Bar and Restaurant, Quesada at 7.30. Ticket price will be 7.50 Euros and to include one course dinner. There will also be a raffle during the evening and all monies raised will be for the Tasha Appeal Fund. Telephone 865 665 231 PCN would like to thank the Costa Blanca People for their continued help and we wish to thank everyone for their generous support for the charity and for this special Appeal.

President of HELP Vega Baja, Michele Masson and D. Francisco Fiestras Pérez, Managing Director of Quirónsalud in Torrevieja, have signed a collaborative agreement. This will allow members of HELP Vega Baja to receive a number of benefits including a free annual blood test, annual dental clean and a 10% discount on general and surgical health services from 1st February 2017. Michele Masson said: ‘we have been working very closely with Quirónsalud hospital recently and in particular with Samantha Biddles from the Relaciones externas internacionales who has been extremely supportive of the charity.’ The hospital has already hosted a talk on Parkinsons earlier in the month and it is anticipated that there will be further talks on future subjects of interest.

Other recent news includes the introduction by HELP of a hospital visiting team which Michele believes will be of huge benefit within the international ward. If you are a member of HELP Vega Baja and would like to benefit from this opportunity you should produce your membership card or voucher when booking an appointment. Other collaborations HELP Vega Baja are keen to work together with other organisations and charities. A more formal way of doing this has now begun and Michele chaired the first meeting of CARE (Communication And Resource Exchange) which was attended by presidents from many local charities. ‘It is very important that charities communicate with each other to ensure

that we are using our resources in the most efficient way possible,’ explained Michele. ‘It is early days yet for this new group but the signs are very positive that we will be able to work together for the benefit of those people that need our help.’ For those interested in helping a charity, Michele advises that you begin by following their Facebook page. ‘The local press are extremely supportive,’ adds Michele, ‘and we appreciate this, however, the more publicity we can receive the better and areas such as Facebook really do help.’ The CARE group are hoping to hold a Charities Awareness Day later this year.

Watch out for the processionary caterpillar It’s the time of year when dog owners are particularly wary of coming across the processionary caterpillar when walking their dogs. There have already been a number of sightings of this unwelcome and potentially dangerous pest whose hairs can lead to breathing problems and even death. The pine processionary moth lays around 300 eggs which hatch into minute caterpillars that have five growth stages. During their third ‘moult’ or growth stage they build white cotton-wool like nests, usually in pine trees, and continue to feed on pine leaves. Between February and April they reach their fifth growth stage when they are ready to leave the tree and make their way to the ground. They then form a long chain to search for the next place to settle in their life cycle. This ‘procession’ is what gives the caterpillar its name.The caterpillars have a distinctive orange-brown colour with blue bands and once out of the tree they then

burrow just below ground where they pupate. It is whilst they are searching for their underground burrows that most problems occur. Their processionary line sometimes crosses routes taken by dogs and their owners. The hairs of the caterpillar give off dust that can cause respiratory problems and are particularly toxic for children and dogs. To make matters worse, the caterpillar can eject its hairs if it feels stressed or threatened. These can penetrate or irritate skin and dogs are particularly susceptible to picking up the hairs on their paws and then licking them. The hairs are then transferred onto the tongue which can cause itching and swelling making it hard for the dog to breathe and, in the worst cases, can lead to death. Tackling the problem The councillor for parks and gardens in Torrevieja, Councillor Domingo Soler, announced that during January all the

pine trees in the town squares and gardens have been treated. Councillor Soler thanked those carrying out the work during his press conference. However, the use of pesticides has the unwanted effect of killing not only pests but friends too. The volunteers at the natural parks have been looking at alternative ways of dealing with the caterpillars through more natural means. On the 9th February new nest boxes were placed around the park with the intention of encouraging the Great Tit to breed there. These birds are predators of the processionary caterpillar and are hoped to be a natural alternative to limiting the damage they cause. The boxes are numbered and the project will be monitored carefully to see which turn out to be the most frequently used for further reference. Although measures are being taken to address the problem of the processionary, dog walkers should maintain their vigilance, at least for the near future. Suzanne O’Connell

means that you must accept his tendency to fall over frequently. Marian has videos to demonstrate how he constantly collapses when on tiles and then gets up again. ‘He’s always been this way and this is life for him, all he has known,’ explains Marian. ‘But for someone watching it seems painful and you must have quite a tough disposition to recognise and cope with that.’ Orko will never get better but he can improve. His is not an illness but a disability and there are measures that can be taken to help him get about more satisfactorily. Marian explains how he has a harness that helps him control his hind legs. With this in place you can take him out for a walk as you would another dog. There are also corrective devices that can help guide his front legs too. He’s not a puppy, but in some ways he behaves like one, full of energy and determination, he does not let his tumbles get him down. He’s an American Stafford and as such his owners should have a dangerous dogs licence. However, Marian

is hoping for a special dispensation for him given that he is a danger to no one. So what special attributes does Orko’s new owner need to have? ‘I would like to see him living somewhere with a garden or at least an area where he can wander round on his own and fall over without hurting himself,’ explains Marian. ‘It’s painful to watch him on tiles as he cannot get a grip and falls constantly.’ If you do think you might be able to help Orko find his forever home, then you should contact Marian directly. This is no easy commitment and Marian recognises that it’s all about finding the right match. ‘You need to have patience, be openminded and love dogs. If you can offer a garden area, that’s ideal. He’s not an easy dog to have but he’s got a lovely disposition and has no problem with cats or children. We’re looking for a very special home.’ If you think you might be that special home you can call Marian on 667 061 514. Suzanne O’Connell

A very special dog needs a home His name is Orko and he is a very special dog. Orko has a disability called ataxia which means that he has difficulty walking and lacks coordination. Orko is a happy dog and this might seem strange not only because of his disability but also because his early life saw him living in a household that itself had difficulties. Orko had to be removed from the home he grew up in. His owners, for various reasons, were not in a position to care for him as he needed to be cared for. Now he is in a temporary foster home but, at eight years old, he needs to find a permanent home that can give him the love and care he deserves. Marian has been his foster mum and she cares passionately about him. So much so that she is keen to help find the perfect match for his future home. ‘Orko is a lovely dog,’ explains Marian, ‘but he needs a very special person to take care of him.’ The person that Marian has in mind must be both strong-minded and caring. Strong-minded because living with Orko

New Bereavement Support Group in La Marina A new bereavement support group opens its doors soon in La Marina. Nicki KilbeyFoster who will be running the group on a voluntary basis said “When I moved to La Marina I became aware that many people who live on the Urbanization were expats who are, let’s say, ‘over 21’. I recognised that they had lost husbands, wives, partners, relatives and close friends, they then had to go through their bereavement, often alone and maybe without the support of family or friends nearby. As a qualified and experienced Counsellor, I noticed the loneliness and sense of isolation, so I researched what was available in terms of support locally. Soon afterwards, I heard of HELP Vega Baja. I met with Michele Masson, president of HELP Vega Baja and we discussed my observations and my idea of setting up a bereavement support group

in the area in conjunction with this charity. Michele took this suggestion back to the HELP Vega Baja committee and I looked for a suitable venue to run a support group.” We are now pleased to say that the Final Whistle in Consum Square, in Urb La Marina have kindly offered the use of their conservatory, for a fortnightly support meetings with the first bereavement support group on Tuesday 14 February at 10.30 am. Dean and Laura of Final Whistle have extended their compassion for the group by offering a special deal on breakfast or lunch for those attending the group. Any adult who has experienced bereavement (however recently or long ago) and would like some support, through sharing experiences and creative expression is welcome to attend. This group is free to attend.

Channel 4

In addition Nicki is happy to offer half price one to one counselling, via her clinic Serenity Therapies, to all members of HELP Vega Baja. For further information please contact Nicki on nickikilbey3@gmail.com

During a conversation with Donald Trump one evening last week, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy offered to act as his “interlocutor in Europe, Latin America, and also in North Africa and the Middle East”. Rajoy also told the US president that despite the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, known as Brexit, that “in the coming months the process of European integration will be strengthened,” a goal that the Spanish government will be working toward. The Spanish prime minister’s official residence, the Moncloa Palace, said in a statement that Rajoy had spoken with Donald Trump for 15 minutes through translators, as part of the round of calls the US president is making to the leaders of close allies (including others, such as Russia). After talking to Rajoy, Trump spoke with Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. According to the Moncloa, Rajoy said he was prepared to “develop a good relationship with the new US administration” and explained to Trump

that Spain, “with a stable government and an economy that is growing at more than 3 percent, is in the best condition to be an interlocutor for the United States.”The press statement does not say whether Rajoy expressed any criticism of Trump’s decision to build a wall along the US-Mexican border or his travel ban on citizens from seven Muslim majority nations. A statement released by the White House is much briefer and does not refer to either of these decisions, which have prompted international criticism. It notes that Trump and Rajoy reaffirmed their bilateral alliance on a series of matters of joint interest and does not go into further detail, beyond citing a number of shared priorities, particularly efforts to eliminate ISIS, as the president’s spokesman, Sean Spicer had already mentioned. The only topic explicitly mentioned in both press statements is the Atlantic Alliance. Madrid said that both leaders had mentioned they would be at the NATO summit due to be held in May in Brussels and had addressed questions

of security and defense. The Spanish press release highlights the importance of the US military bases at Rota and Morón, in southern Spain, along with the participation of Spanish soldiers in training the Iraqi armed forces and close intelligence collaboration between the US and Spanish security forces. The White House said that Trump had reiterated the United States’ commitment to NATO and emphasised the importance that all NATO allies share the burden of defense spending. Trump’s conversation with France’s President François Hollande on 28th January, and with the Italian Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, on Saturday also mentioned this. In his conversation with the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, also on January 28, he reiterated the message that Europe will have to increase its contribution to defense spending. Following Tuesday evening’s telephone call, Rajoy tweeted that the con-versation with Trump had been “cordial” and that it was aimed at

“strengthening relations to the benefit of our peoples,” adding: “We are allied nations.” Spain is aspiring to become a privileged interlocutor for Washington within the EU once the United Kingdom has left, as well as making use of its links to Latin America, although it remains to be seen whether Trump, who has sparked a crisis with Mexico and clashed with France and Germany, would find it useful to assign Rajoy that role. Communication channel Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis told the Spanish Senate last Tuesday afternoon that the government is seeking to establish a “frank and constructive” communication channel with the new US administration that would allow deeper cooperation on shared questions and to “address in a frank manner” disagreements. Dastis declined to comment on the first measures taken by Trump, such as the wall with Mexico or the travel ban, but said that Spain “will not renounce the free movement of people and goods,” and would try to convince Washington that the best way to fight against illegal

immigration is to work with the countries of origin and transit for migrants. Andrés Gil, a senator for the Socialist Party (PSOE), called on Rajoy to demand “respect and dignity” for the Mexican people when speaking with Trump, and described as “particularly painful and humiliating” the Spanish government’s “wall of silence” in the face of the “wall of shame” that the US administration wants to build along the border with its southern neighbor. Dastis pointed out that he spoke last week with his Mexican counterpart, Luis Videgaray and that Rajoy had talked with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, expressing to him his “undoubted solidarity”and to tell him he could“count on Spain for any initiative to re-establish good relations and trust with the United States.” Trump and Rajoy held a 20-minute telephone conversation on 12th December, but their talk last week was the first since Trump was inaugurated on 20th January. Dastis still hasn’t spoken with the new US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, but hopes to do so at the meeting of G20 foreign ministers to be held on 16th February in Bonn.

The International Cofradia needs you This year will be the 13th year that the Paso of Jesus in the Garden of Olives (Cofradia de Nuestro Padre Jesús en la Oración del Huerto de los Olivos) has been carried through the streets of Torrevieja during Holy Week by the International Cofradia. To carry the Paso effectively we require about 100 men, each year needing to recruit approximately 20 new members to replace those who for one reason or another are unable to take part. This is a fantastic opportunity to participate in one of the most important events in the local Spanish cultural and religious calendar. Those of us who have carried the paso in the processions will testify to the fact that it is a unique experience and one which all of us will remember for the rest of our lives. You do not have to be super fit to take part; most of our members are retired and certainly not in the ‘first flush of youth’. It is particularly important this year that we recruit more new members than traditionally we have had to because we are anticipating losing quite a few of our existing team. If we are unable to assemble around 100 people we will be forced to push the Paso during the processions rather than carrying it on our shoulders and that would be a great disappointment, not just to ourselves but also to the many thousands of people

who line the streets to watch the processions. If you are interested in taking part please contact David McLachan on 865 661 937 who can give you a further details and come along to our first meeting which is detailed below. The first official meeting of the International Cofradia will be on Thursday, March 2nd. This is principally for registration of existing and new members. We will then be meeting each following Thursday, March 9th , March 16th , March 23rd, March 30 and again on April 6th when the Paso will be taken down to be parked behind the Inmaculada church in the centre of Torrevieja ready for the Easter processions during Semana Santa. The meetings will be held at the Semana Santa Museum on the outskirts of Torrevieja starting at 7:30 pm in the evening. Subscriptions for membership have been kept at €35. If you are an existing member please make sure you come and attend the first meeting and if you have not already done so why not bring along a friend to become part of this unique group of people. If you are an existing member and are not taking part this year please can you bring your uniform along to the first meeting or contact Paul Mutter on 671 218 285. Paul Mutter

No excuses for benefit fraud A Briton who lived in Mazarrón, in southwest Spain, and claimed that being penniless and homeless had left him no choice but to make a fraudulent claim for benefit has been handed two suspended prison sentences and ordered to repay in full the wrongfully claimed cash. 69-year-old Michael Dugdale from Preston failed to declare that he owned 50% of a property in Mazarrón, Murcia

when making a claim for Pension Credit in 2007. An important detail which he again omitted on a review claim form 3 years later, in 2010. Thanks to an anonymous tip-off via the Benefit Fraud Hotline, DWP fraud teams based in the UK and Spain launched an investigation into his claim to uncover the truth. Despite initially denying any wrongdoing, Dugdale was finally forced to admit to the fraud when

presented with the Spanish property documents clearly showing that he owned 50% of the Spanish property with his ex-partner. Dugdale stated that his dire economic situation on his return to the UK from Spain in 2007 had left him no choice but to make a bogus claim for a benefit he knew he was not entitled to. He pleaded guilty at Preston Crown Court to two charges of benefit fraud

totalling over £35,000 and was given two 8-month suspended prison sentences for each charge and ordered to repay the stolen funds in full or face imprisonment. Income-related benefits such as Pension Credit or Income Support cannot be claimed if you live outside of the UK. And if you do live in the UK and make a claim, you must declare any property you own abroad as well as any

in the UK. Not doing so is considered to be a criminal offence. If you suspect someone of committing benefit fraud, call the Benefit Fraud Hotline in Spain on 900 554 440. Lines are open 8am-4pm, Monday to Friday, and all calls are free and confidential. Alternatively you can report benefit fraud online at www.gov.uk/report-benefit-fraud

Still no drop-in centre for the Costa A year has passed since the Orihuela Costa Community Care Association was promised premises by the Town Hall for a Drop-in Centre in Orihuela Costa at The Reading Point, Lomas de Cabo Roig. The intention was to provide creative activities and specialist therapies for those living in Orihuela Costa with longterm illness and conditions. Part of the plan was to provide a centre for professional care providers such as a Stroke Support Group and Alzheimer’s Association so that people who live in Orihuela Costa no longer have to travel to Torrevieja or Pilar de Horadada to seek support for their conditions. A communication telephone service is also planned to ensure people living alone are contacted on a weekly basis and given advice on health and social welfare issues. However, the premises did not have the relevant insurance to cover people using the Reading Point for the kind of activities planned, including volunteers. Despite being told recently that the insurance is now in place, there is still no joy and certainly no confirmation that Orihuela Town Hall will allow the

association to use the premises. In the meantime Orihuela Costa Community Care Association has found alternative premises to start the programme of events, at Alfonso’s Restaurante, near Playa Flamenca Town Hall. The group now meets every Tuesday afternoon from 2pm to 5pm for games and refreshments. Anyone wishing to join is welcome to go along where they will be welcomed by volunteers and meet like-minded people in similar situations. Not be defeated by the set back in a dedicated premises, Orihuela Costa Community Care Association is determined to facilitate the provision of fair and adequate facilities for the disabled and those with special needs of all ages and nationalities within the local community. There are more than 600 neurological conditions which lead to long termmedical needs requiring specialist support and treatment. These include conditions such as: Parkinson’s, Motor Neurone & Huntingdon’s Diseases, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Arthritis,

Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Diseases, Dementia and Alzhiemers Diseases and many others that are not commonly known such as Cerebelum Ataxia. Events are planned to raise awareness and support for Orihuela Costa Community Care Association at Alfonso’s Restaurante. For more information and if you want to help volunteer to support the Association, contact: Penny at 966 760 814.

Rita Barberá post mortem Rita Barberá’s death was caused by liver cirrhosis, according to her post-mortem. The former Mayoress of Valencia’s postmortem results have been revealed in the Spanish press, and show she died from a multiple organ failure sparked by cirrhosis of the liver. Rita, 68, was head of Spain's third-largest city for 24 uninterrupted years and, among all the other aspects of her reign she was criticised for, her major achievements include the creation of the spectacular and futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, which was designed by Santiago Calatrava and is likened to Sydney Opera House. She was found dead in the Hotel Villarreal in Madrid on 23rd November, where her sister was staying in the same room as her, and it was initially said she suffered a heart attack. This sparked widespread criticism from within the right-wing PP party over how those accused of corruption are treated – and judged by media before even standing trial – as it appeared the stress of the case had provoked a cardiac arrest.

However, according to the Spanish daily broadsheet El Mundo, Barberá had been diagnosed with an irreversible liver cirrhosis and suffered ascitis – liquid in the abdomen caused by high blood pressure in the veins which carry blood to the liver, a side-effect of cirrhosis.

Forensics found a high amount of infectious fluid in her body due to the fact that her liver was not able to do its job of detoxing the body. Her condition is said to have been ‘very badly deteriorated'’ at the time. As a result of the liver being unable to process and eliminate toxins, Barberá's kidneys were also functioning very poorly, which aggravated the problem since the kidneys also act as a toxin filter. Rita Barberá was alleged to be a heavy drinker, although liver

cirrhosis is not always caused by alcohol. Hepatitis A, caused by contaminated food or water; Hepatitis B, which is sexuallytransmitted, and Hepatitis C which is caught from the blood of a person who suffers either of the other two strains, can also lead to cirrhosis, or permanent scarring, of the organ. Non-infectious strains of Hepatitis can be caused by some medication or chemicals, which can then lead to cirrhosis. The causes of Barberá’s severe and incurable cirrhosis, although widely speculated upon, have never been officially confirmed. Last week, Barberá was posthumously awarded the Golden Key to the City in Valencia, and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy gave an emotive speech in which he stressed how much he missed his 30-year friendship with Rita – including 'when she used to scream blue murder' at him. He embraced her sisters, to whom Rita was very close, for a long time, and was clearly moved by the tribute to one of his oldest friends.

Cow saved by petition Carmen, a cow diagnosed with bovine tuberculosis, has been saved from the slaughterhouse after more than 70,000 people signed an online petition calling for her to be allowed to live out her days at the Madrid animal sanctuary where she has spent the last two years. The Wings of Heart animal refuge challenged the regional government of Madrid’s order to have Carmen put down, saying it lacked authority over its installations, taking to the social networks and using online petition site Change.org to rally support from people. Within 24 hours, the campaign had garnered 70,866 signatures of support, prompting the authorities to come up with another solution to prevent the spread of the disease: Carmen would have to be kept in isolation. Bovine tuberculosis can be spread to other livestock and to humans. The founders of Wings of Heart questioned the tests carried out on Carmen, requesting further examinations, which were refused. “The tests on eradication of diseases cannot be carried out by just any vet, they

require particular training, which provides certification,” said a source at the Agriculture Department of the regional government, pointing out that it could not force the organization to put the cow down: “We cannot oblige them by law, but we recommended they did so in the interest of public health.” At a meeting between representatives of the Agriculture Department of the regional government of Madrid with the founders of Wings of Heart, it was agreed that tests would be carried out on all animals at the refuge susceptible to catching tuberculosis and that measures would be taken to reduce the risk of those working there.

Treating varicose veins The era of great discoveries in medicine passed by without bringing us remedy for many diseases that affect our daily life. This has been the case for varicose veins, because we have not been able to prevent them from appearing or curing them with just one pill. But doctors have not given up or lost time, we have developed many advances and we continue to look for ways to improve in our daily fight against this disease. At first we only had surgery as an effective treatment. Varicose veins usually appear on accessory superficial veins that can be removed without problems for circulation. This was very effective for large veins, but had the aggressiveness of the operating room and left numerous unsightly scars. In addition, we were unable to remove the small veins and capillaries that are inside the skin, so the aesthetic results were mediocre. To solve these problems, for many years we have tried a myriad of methods to get rid of those diseased veins or try to regain their original shape. All these techniques are grouped

under the common name of "SCLEROSIS" and are categorized physical and pharmacological. Physical sclerosis basically consists of mechanical or heat injury to the veins that we want to make disappear. In order that the burn does not affect the tissues surrounding the vein and can cause scarring, technologies such as Laser and Radiofrequency have

been used. Its effectiveness is greatly limited by the enormous difficulty of achieving direct contact with all affected venous segments. Its other great inconvenience is the high cost of the equipment that technology has been providing us, which has a high cost of treatments. Despite its low efficiency and high cost, the exploitation of its futuristic image still achieves some commercial impact. Pharmacological sclerosis consists of introducing drugs into

diseased veins to make them recover or disappear. The injected product is distributed without difficulty through all the veins affected, however deep or twisted they are, obtaining a complete effect. During recent years, the best drugs have been trialled at different concentrations and ratios, as well as the application methodologies, until perfecting the results and minimizing the complications. Nowadays, medical science considers injectables the best treatment for varicose veins, but there are still important methodological differences between the different medical equipment that affect the perfection and the durability of the results obtained. When the treatments are intensive and rushed, there is a cosmetic impact. When they are too soft or slow, rapid relapses occur. The QUPA team is committed to balanced, paused and complete treatments that allow us to offer our patients the guarantee of an ideal result. Contact QUPA now for a free assessment of your varicose veins and advice on how to rid yourself of the problem for good. See QUPA’s main advert on page 57 of this week’s

info: 966 733 314 667 817 546 BEREAVEMENT Over the next couple of weeks we are going to touch on this taboo subject. People these days are happy to talk about sex, drugs and contraception to name but a few things, but we are still reluctant to talk about death. Because I live locally I know for sure that many of our readers have lost loved ones recently and in the past few months and it is important to

acknowledge this and try to give even a little support and help. Bereavement is the period of grief and mourning after a death. When we grieve, it’s part of the normal process of reacting to a loss. We may experience grief as a mental, physical, social or emotional reaction, or all of these. Physical reactions , which are often the things we notice first include sleeping problems, changes in appetite, tiredness or illness. Mental

reactions can include anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness and despair. Social issues are often the feeling of part of us is missing, and a reluctance to go out and socialise because we feel different, uncomfortable , like a gooseberry or sometimes a total lack of our self confidence. How long we feel bereaved varies from person to person and sometimes depends on how close we were to the deceased, if it was sudden or an expected death or the actual process involved. Friends, family , professional counselling, can all help but often people are reluctant to intrude on the bereaved and so we can feel distanced simply because it is difficult for everyone to know what to do best. The most common scenario over here is the death of a spouse as this changes our world completely. We are in mourning, feeling grief and sorrow at the loss. We may feel numb initially, shocked, fearful and sometimes guilty that we are still here and our partner is not. There is no right or wrong way to mourn. One of the hardest things is to somehow put our own life back together. This can be hard work. Some people feel better sooner than they expected others take longer. There is no perfect grief and it is something that no one can do for us. In a short article it is difficult to help a great deal, but because it is so important we will look again at bereavement and what we can do to lighten the load a little.

Steve via email asks: Hi Aunty, I have had a Hotmail address for over 10 years and recently it seems to be called Outlook and I’m getting a hell of lot more dodgy looking emails which get sent to my junk box that are obvious scams and pretending to be from banks. Recently I had one supposedly from The Inland Revenue offering me a tax rebate but the spelling was so awful it gave it away. I always mark them as spam and then they automatically disappear from my inbox but recently I’m getting concerned that these scammers seem to have more and more of my private personal information so what happens to the emails? Does my email or Internet provider report them? because as they automatically go into my junk inbox I can’t see any way of forward them to the banks etc to alert them as to what is going on. Aunty Says: I’m not sure how Hotmail (Microsoft) deal with their customers’ spam problems Steve but I’m sure there is a setting somewhere that will help you flag and report any particularly nasty emails as spam. In Gmail there is a “report spam” option that will alert Google and hopefully they follow it up and do something about it. Policing

www.costablancapeople.com

this kind of thing is a nightmare but there was a legal case recently where a UK company was heavily fined for spamming and abusing people’s private and personal information, but outside of the EU and USA nobody seems to care that much. Wayne via email asks: Dear Aunty, I was just wondering what the difference is between a USB2 & USB3 and if I need to replace any of my old USB devices (mouse, Webcam, memory stick etc) when I but a new laptop. Thanks for your help in the past. Aunty Says: The main difference with the new USB-3 connection is the transfer speed as it can read and write nearly twice as fast as USB2, which is particularly noticeable when copying between your computer and a USB stick or external hard drive. USB-3 can also chuck out more power than USB-2 which will mean charging things will be quicker and should create a new generation of USB gadgets. One of the design requirements of the new USB technology was that it is backwardly compatible with USB-2, so for the while you should be able to use either USB2 or USB-3 devices in any USB port. Brian via email asks: Hi Aunty. I would like to back up everything on my computer in case of a crash

but I’m not sure how to go about it. I have a lot of important documents and photos which I do not want to lose and would like to store them elsewhere for safety sake. I have a few books on computers but they are not particularly helpful & you can't ask a book questions. I will be glad of any help you can give me relating to this. Also I would like to back up separately i.e. documents and photos etc. Aunty Says: Hello Brian. Probably the easiest way these days is to copy it all onto a USB memory stick and stash it away in a drawer somewhere safe. You can pick up a 32GB USB stick for under €15 and that will hold thousands of photos and documents. When you plug the USB stick in, it will appear as a drive letter in Windows and I simply use the mouse right click to copy and paste documents and photos from one folder to another. That’s all for this week, email me your problems to auntyvirus@costablancapeo ple.com and I will see what I can do.

BUSINESS PROFILE

REGISTERING YOUR VEHICLE IN SPAIN.

SPANISH LICENSE PLATES AND REGISTRATION DOCUMENT

R

egistering a nonSpanish vehicle in Spain is a complex and potentially costly procedure. However, you maybe exempt from Spanish registration tax by getting Spanish number plates within one month of entering the country. But to do this, you need to become a resident. Linea Directa has been insuring expat drivers in Spain for over a decade and understands all the steps involved. Below we outline this process. STEP 1: OBTAINING A CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMITY This is a statement by the car’s manufacturer that it conforms to EU regulations. You will need the car’s chassis number to complete this straightforward process online at www.eurococ.eu/en/certificate_of_co nformity. The charges for this service will vary according to type of vehicle, make and country of 1st registration. STEP 2: CURRENT LOG BOOK The vehicle’s original log book showing your name as the owner, the vehicles age and a valid UK address. You will also need the bill of sale for the car. STEP 3: RESIDENCY IN SPAIN

The Spanish residency certificate (Certificado de Empadronamiento) is your official proof of residency in Spain. Your local town hall can provide you with this document. You will need to take your passport and proof of Spanish address (rental contract, contract to purchase or property deeds).

STEP 4: OBTAINING A SPANISH MOT CERTIFICATE All vehicles over 4 years old must be roadworthy and clearly display a valid ITV sticker. The ITV (Vehicle Technical

Inspection) must be tested at an authorised centre, just as for an MOT test. You can find out the location of your nearest ITV centre on DGT website (equivalent to the DVLA). You can also call your local centre to make a booking. If the centre is busy, especially pre-summer, this can save a lot of time. The cost can vary but generally is around 40€ for petrol-engine cars and 56€ for diesel-engine cars. Step 5: OBTAINING A SPANISH EQUIVALENTOF A TAX DISC The Spanish Tax Agency can provide your vehicle with a valid “tax disc” for Spain, which must be carried in the car when in use. You will need to complete the relevant form online and pay the amount according to your car’s tax band. You can carry out all these procedures yourself or you can seek the assistance of an accountant to do this for you. We hope the information provided in this article is of interest. If you would like to contact Linea Directa please call 902 123 566 More information on.Linea Directa online at www.lineadirectacom

Fiat Chrysler recalls 1.9 million vehicles over air bag defect Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has said it is recalling 1.9 million vehicles worldwide for an air bag defect that is linked to three deaths and five injuries. The recall is to resolve a defect that may prevent deployment of air bags and seatbelt pretensioners in some crashes. The recall includes models sold between 2010

and 2014, including the Chrysler Sebring, 200, Dodge Caliber, Avenger, Jeep Patriot and Compass SUVs. It said the recall also includes the 20122013 Lancia Flavia midsize car The recall is the latest in a series affecting tens of millions of the devices for a series of problems. Last week, General Motors said it would recall nearly 4.3 million vehicles worldwide due to a software defect that can prevent air bags from deploying during a crash, a flaw already linked to one death and three injuries. That defect is similar but not identical to the Fiat Chrysler issue. Fiat Chrysler said the issue occurred when vehicles equipped with a particular occupant restraint control module and front impact sensor wiring of a specific design are involved in certain collisions. GM said in its recall that the sensing and diagnostic module that controls air bag deployment has a software defect that may prevent frontal air bags from deploying in certain “rare circumstances�. Fiat Chrysler said it no longer uses the occupant restraint controllers or wire routing design. The notice did not say when it will begin recall repairs.

El Plantio 2 Golf Society A very windy morning upset the games of many of the pairings in El Plantio 2's Greensome competition on 7th February. However the dynamic duo of Ian Craig and Penny Goujon posted a fantastic return, beating the nearest competion by almost 8 shots. Most of the members know the abilility of Ian but this time Penny, who plays off a high handicap, more than matched him and both posted respective nearest the pins to rub salt into everyone else's wounds. Nearest the pins : Hole 4, Ian Craig, Hole 6, Penny Goujon. 3rd Place - Handicap 10.26, Lawrence Wanty, Gary Needham, Net 57.74 Shots . 2nd Place - Handicap 9.94, John O'Brien, Ken Green, Net 57.06 Shots. 1st Place - Handicap 11.8, Ian Craig, Penny Goujon, Net 49.20 Shots.

The Record Holder... For World Records Athletes wearing the new Reebok CrossFit Nano 7, Reebok's most versatile training shoe, break 44 Guiness world records ™ titles in 24 hours in cities across the globe It's often said records were made to be broken, but global fitness leader, Reebok, may have forever changed that axiom. Powered by the brand's newest functional training shoe, the Nano 7, Reebok gathered special guests and athletes around the world to break 44 of the top fitness-based GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS titles in just 24 hours. The global, record-shattering event showcased the versatility of the Nano 7, which has broken more world records than any other shoe on the globe. Reebok athletes, brand partners and excited volunteers descended on London, Sydney, L.A. and New York last week in attempt to break an unprecedented amount of fitness-based records all in one built-for-anything shoe. Attempts ranged from 10-year old Milla Star trying for the most burpees in one minute to Eirik Lundstein attempting the most barbell backflips in 1 minute with 20kgs. Notable athletes and participants in the attempts included: • Max Greenfield - Actor • Annie Thorisdottir – CrossFit Athlete & 2x CrossFit Games Champion • Milla Star – 10 year old fitness phenom • Logan Aldridge – Adaptive athlete and CrossFit Coach • Dan Bailey – CrossFit Athlete & 5x CF Games Competitor • Scott Panchik – CrossFit Athlete and

5x CF Games Competitor • Rob Forte - CrossFit Athlete and 6x CF Games Competitor • Kara Webb – CrossFit Athlete and 5x CF Games Competitor • Camille Leblanc-Bazinet – CrossFit Athlete and former CF Games Champion Of the dozens of attempts, 44 official records were shattered – a recordbreaking accomplishment in itself. "It was awesome to be a part of Reebok's record-breaking day," said Max Greenfield, avid CrossFitter and star of FOX hit series New Girl. "To see so many records fall around the world is a testament to the Nano 7 and everything it can handle." A huge array of records were broken around the world, including four by Camille Leblanc-Bazinet whose accomplishments included crushing the current record for fastest pegboard climb by nearly 30 seconds; Annie Thorisdottir extending the record for most weight lifted in a clean and jerk by an impressive 600kgs; Rachel Martinez managing an incredible 12 handstand push-ups in 60 seconds; and Ricky Garard and Sammy Wood surpassing the current records for most squats in a minute for a male and female with 70 and 64 respectively. In New York, CrossFit Veteran Dan Bailey showcased the improved power and stability provided by the Nano 7 by breaking the record for most weight lifted barbell snatch in 3 minutes by 145kgs, setting a record of an incredible 2,145kgs. "We believe the Nano 7 is the epitome of training shoes. Putting Nanos to the test through breaking GUINNESS WORLD

RECORD titles was a fun and exciting way to bring it to life. Some of our athletes made these incredible fitness feats look easy, but these are world-class efforts and true demonstrations of what happens when determination and grit meet peak performance. Record or no-record, we're incredibly proud of all our athletes and volunteer participants who continually show us their willingness to push themselves to their limits," said Inga Stenta, Senior Director of Brand Management at Reebok. The Nano 7 supported each athlete's attempt by providing them with the unprecedented comfort, mobility, breathability and support needed to challenge these astonishing feats of strength, power and speed. Offering a sleek design with a dynamic fit, the Nano

7 enables users to be light on their feet, powerful in their movements and efficient in their workouts. Additional key features to the next generation of Nano include: • Ultimate Performance – NANOWEAVE technology was specifically designed for functional training movements and provides breathability and durability for your movements • Strong Foundation – powerlaunch toebox for a improved power, fit and stability • Stable Comfort – reinforced heel clip and performance sole offer stability, traction and comfort The Reebok CrossFit Nano 7 is currently available for purchase from Reebok.com and from the official CrossFit store at store.crossfit.com.

Real Madrid scrape a win Joe Root becomes as Barça make merry England Test Captain The first important game of the weekend featured neither of the two main contenders, but the quietly-improving Real Sociedad, who won away against Español thanks to a stunning goal from 30 metres by Illaramendi, to take them within reach of a Champions’ League place. After a sterile draw between Betis and Valencia, Barcelona visited Alavés and ran riot with six goals, their only setback being a nasty injury to Aleix Vidal, which will keep him out of action until next season. Athletic Bilbao managed a win by the odd goal over Deportivo, then it was the turn of Real Madrid to visit Osasuna. The Pamplona ground has never been an easy place to play for the whites, even if they are at the bottom of the league – and so it proved. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring, but an error on the Madrid right let in the lively ex-Elche striker Sergio Leon, who flicked the ball neatly over Keylor Navas to equalize. Real Madrid improved in the second half, and Isco scored an opportunist goal, then a late effort by sub Lucas Vazquez made

it 1-3. This means that Real Madrid remain a point ahead of Barça, with two games in hand. Sunday’s last two matches served to preserve the status quo at the top of the league as Sevilla somehow found a goal to defeat Las Palmas

on the island, and Atletico had an even greater task, coming from behind with late goals by Carrasco and Griezmann to beat Celta at the Calderón. Second division leaders Levante won away at Zaragoza by the only goal, to go nine points clear, as no other side looks remotely like catching them, with only Getafe making progress, as they beat Cádiz to go level with the Andalucian side in a distant third behind Girona. In division 2B, Alcoyano continue to do well, and won away at Llagostera, to

stay a point behind Barcelona B in second place. Hercules’ away win over Eldense keeps them in touch too. In England, Liverpool’s in-andout form continues, as they beat Spurs 2-0, a similar result to that at that achieved by Arsenal against Hull, and Manchester United over Watford. Sunderland, who last week beat Crystal Palace by four goals, were on the wrong end of a four goal beating this weekend, by Southampton. West Ham must have thought they had sewn up their home game with West Brom when they took the lead on 86 minutes, but Evans had other ideas, and scored in the last minute of injury time to send Mr Bilic’s blood pressure skyhigh. Chelsea were then held by a spirited Burnley, so remain a ‘mere’ ten points clear. In tennis, Spain lost their Federation Cup tie against the powerful Czech Republic 3-2, the strength of Pliskova being the decisive factor, as she overcame both Spanish players. Malcolm Palmer

The Yorkshire batsman, aged 26, succeeds Alastair Cook, who resigned last week after more than four years in charge. “It is a huge honour to be given the Test captaincy,” said Root, who will be the 80th man to lead the country in the longest form of the game. “I feel privileged, humbled and very excited.” Root steps up from vicecaptain, with Durham all-rounder Ben Stokes, 25, filling the role as his deputy. No batsman has scored more than Root's 4,594 runs since he made his Test debut in December 2012. In the same time period, only India captain Virat Kohli has scored more runs than Root in all forms of international cricket. “Joe is the right man to be our next Test captain and I'm thrilled that he has accepted the role,” said England director of cricket Andrew Strauss. “He is universally respected by his team mates, passionate about driving the Test team forward and extremely excited about the prospect of leading his country.” Cook resigned on 6th February after a record 59 Tests at the helm.

Before the tour of India at the end of last year, the 32-year-old opener said he was looking forward to not being captain. As England moved towards a 40 series defeat, Cook increased speculation over his future by saying he was questioning his position. After he resigned, he confirmed he would like to continue at the top of the order, with England director of cricket

Andrew Strauss leading the process to appoint a successor. Root, Stokes, pace bowler Stuart Broad and one-day vicecaptain Jos Buttler were all consulted. But Root was always seen as the clear favourite and was offered the job over the weekend. With England concentrating on limited-overs cricket for the first part of 2017, Root will not properly pick up the reins for

almost five months, with the next Test not until July. Root takes the job with very little captaincy experience - he has only ever skippered in four first-class matches. However, after the visits of South Africa and West Indies, he will lead England to Australia for the defence of the Ashes. For Stokes, the elevation to vice-captain is further confirmation of his importance to the England side after an occasionally turbulent start to his international career. In 2013, he was sent home from the England Lions tour of Australia for disciplinary reasons after he and pace bowler Matt Coles were found to have ignored the management's instructions over preparation and recovery. A spell of drifting in and out of the England team followed, including missing the 2015 World Cup, but he returned to hit the fastest Test century at Lord's - 101 from 85 balls against New Zealand - before smashing England's fastest Test double century against South Africa in January 2016.

For our President's Day we travelled to La Finca, our first visit for a while. We had a good turnout of 40 members and guests but, alas, the high winds on the day made

scoring very difficult for most of us. Despite this we had a great day and an even better evening back at the pub where we enjoyed a superb three course meal courtesy of our President Rory. Thank you Rory, Hazel and staff for all your hard work and generosity. Thanks also to Costa Calida Golf for arranging our outing. NEAREST THE PRESIDENT'S DRIVE - John Aird. NTP holes 3 & 6 No winner, hole 13 Ken Dunne, hole 16 Terry Fitzgerald. LONGEST DRIVE hole 11 John McGettighan, hole 18 Myra Coull.

The Members Golf Society Thirty six members and just a couple of guests flew into La Marquesa, well with the strong winds it was a job to keep your feet on the floor. This golf course is situated in a vale between Ciudad Quesada and Rojales so you can imagine the strength of the wind there. La Marquesa afford us a 2 tee start which really helps to get everyone in quickly, so there is no 2 hour waiting for the presentation .The golf course was presented in good condition and our members seem to enjoy playing there, they also enjoy the menu del dia in the clubhouse afterwards. With these difficult conditions the scoring could be expected to be low and so it proved, except for a couple of exceptions in our Bronze category but no one broke par as can be seen in the results. N.T.P. competition; hole 5 O. Cederberg, hole 11 T. Norris, hole 15 S. Sonesen, hole 17 C. Marsden: Bronze category, 3rd P. Mahoney 22 pts. 2nd O.

San Miguel Golf Society Forty-six members and one guest turned up to the Jack Nicklaus designed El Valle, and a number probably wished they hadn’t by the round’s end. A cold northwesterly wind blowing at around 30 km/hr, but with gusts well over 40, made life difficult, especially on the first and half of the back 9 holes which were played straight in to it. Balls oscillating when being stood over to putt, a battle just to stand over them, some pin positions close to slopes leading off the greens and the profusion of bunkers caused havoc to the score cards. Whilst there was no prize for the highest number of blobs, and many players were up near double figures, the low scoring in all categories reflects how hard it was. Only John Aitchison with his 30 points got anywhere near mastering the conditions. The stableford competition results

were the following: Bronze Category: 5th Eva Leidstrom (21), 4th Hayden Williams (24 on CB), 3rd Grattan Forber (24 on CB), 2nd Chris Hamblett (25 on CB) and 1st, for the second week in a row, Norman McBride also with 25 pts. Silver Category: 5th Norman Cahill (24), 4th Ken Flaherty (26 on CB), 3rd Paula Haggart (26 on CB), 2nd William Fenn (26 on CB), and 1st David Wright with 27 pts. Gold Category: 5th Robin Eastman (25), 4th Keven Mitchell (27), 3rd Bjorn Pettersson (29), 2nd Tony Smale (30) and 1st, easily with the day’s best score, John Aitchison with 33 pts.

Lime Bar Golf Society ABBEY ANGLING

RODS & REELS

We fished the 6th round of the Abbey Angling Cup at the El Bosquet Complex on the 7th February, this match was due to have been fished at Murcia, but had to be cancelled as the road was impassable due to silt left by the recent floods. Work has been done this week on the complex, with vegetation cleared from the banks, and 15 new pegs have been made on the No 2 back channel. This work being done was possibly the cause of the water fishing so badly, along with the strong winds making it difficult to fish the pole which kept the weights down. The top weight was Ian Brown on peg one with over 9kgs fishing the feeder, and taking 2nd spot was one of our new members Alan Smith. 1st Ian Brown with 9.440kgs fishing the feeder using corn and maggot 2nd Alan Smith with 9.020kgs fishing the pole using bread 3rd Richard Wood with 8.420kgs fishing the pole using bread There are still some vacancies available for membership at the club All details are available our website

We also fished the 6th round of our Winter Series at the El Bosquet Complex on the 8th February. The wind was even stronger to-day than yesterday, and to make matters worse we had a visit from the Soprona checking everyone’s paper work, and what they require is your appropriate fishing license, your Day Ticket with name, date, and N.I.E. number along with either your passport or driving license for identification purposes. Ian Brown made it a match double to take the first place again today with a weight of over 11kgs,and Dave Hoare taking 2nd spot from the winning peg of yesterday. 1st Ian Brown with 11.680kgs fishing the pole using maggot and bread 2nd Dave Hoare with 8.340kgs fishing the pole using maggot and bread 3rd Mark Harrington with 6.330kgs fishing the pole using corn and bread There are still some vacancies at the Club and if anyone is interested in joining please contact Derek Swann on 966729293 or 617283503

On a fine but very cold and windy morning 32 players teed-off on this challenging course. The competition was played in the stableford format and the scores recorded are as follows:Nearest the pin on the 3th hole was Pete Gillespie Nearest the pin on the 6th hole was Ian Johnstone Nearest the pin on the 9thth hole was Ken Styan Nearest the pin on the 13th hole was K.

La Siesta Bowls Club Your week in Sport The week commenced with a setback for the Apollos in their quest for promotion with a home defeat by Montemar Toreadors by 115 shots to 99. La Siesta securing 5 points to their opponents 9. Winners for La Siesta were Dawn Taylor, Norman Adcroft and Harold Charleton 19-16, Sheila Chorley with Bill and Sue Jordan 21-19 whilst Irene Laverick, Ramsay Sinclair and Brian Gardiner managed a creditable draw 19-19. The Pioneers made the long trip to Mazarron with a depleted squad and lost by 135 shots to 76 the sole winners in a 12-2 defeat being Jean James, Tom Heaslewood and Val Dalton 22-13. Well done to Tony Dalton and his team in getting a full team together in difficult circumstances. Things picked up on Tuesday with the Fed 4’s results. The Parakeets at Home to San Luis Bazas won on all three rinks getting the full 8 points with a shots difference of 54-40. The biggest win came from Joy and Brian Gardiner with Tony Campbell and Pat Reilly who won 18-9.The Hoopoes visited Horadada and came away with a 6-2 win by 70 shots to 34 and the biggest winning rink was Val Dalton, Jean Hepehi with Florence and Mike Edwards who won 32-7. The Winter League team carried on from last week’s encouraging result with a home

victory against Finca Guila by 95 shots to 79 picking up 7 points to their opponents 5.Winning rinks for La Siesta were achieved by Jack Cooper, Brian Harman with Bill and Sue Jordan by 23 shots to11 and Irene Laverick, Tony Campell, Pat Harman and Jean Cooper who won 25-14. The rink of Florence and Mike Edwards with Pat and Trish Reilly secured a further point with a draw 19-19. The Blues travelled to San Miguel to play the Cougars and came away with just the single winning rink of Dave Davies, Brian Gardiner and Harold Charleton who won 21-8. The overall shots being 75-118, thus La Siesta came away with 2 points to San Miguel’s 12. The friendly team of Alex Morrice, Ramsey Sinclair and Beryl Styring managed to win their encounter by 14-12.

Before the Golds home match with Vistabella a minute’s silence was held in memory of Dave Livesey who passed away this week. Dave has been a member of La Siesta for several years, he will be sadly missed by all, both at the Bowls Club, and by his many friends in the Monday Cribbage League. Our thoughts are with Aileen and family at this sad time. Good news for the Golds was an encouraging 12-2 victory over the Conquistadors by 115 shots to 91 taking 12 points to their opponents 2. Star rink was provided by Derek Souter, Penny Porter and Johnnie Ryder 27-12. Thanks to Jim Hudson for stepping in and providing a good win with Tom Heaslewood and Hilary Clarke by 22-14. So well done everybody for a great team effort.

We all know I am a huge rugby fan, right? So you can imagine my delight that the only thing really worth filling the column inches with today is the Six Nations! Jonathan Davies will be wishing he just kicked the ball that little bit better as it was his error that led to England’s match winning try against Wales. Who knows, maybe it was the roof being open that put him off? England have become a team that are hard to beat, according to people who know more than me. That’s hardly accolade of the century now, is it? Anyway, if England do the Grand Slam this time round some kind of unbeaten record will be broken. Yes folks, as ever, top quality analysis right here for you. Ireland smashed Italy 63-10 but then they really should be able to do that every time they play them. Scotland, all excited after last week, came back to earth with a thump conceding far too many penalties against a French side keen to get their campaign underway a week late. I care a little more for cricket. Therefore I was very

disappointed to see Alastair Cook step down as England captain. I was disappointed for two reasons. Firstly, I am just about old enough to remember when England captains didn’t resign after a couple of weeks to gather their thoughts. I remember them being sacked at the end of a Test match, sometimes even in the middle of a Test match and certainly, if they resigned, it was an emotional, tear stained affair in a press conference. This was a very disappointing resignation, about as measured and risk free as many a Cook innings and probably, unlike most of his declarations, very well timed. My second issue with him quitting is that Joe Root will now be burdened with the captaincy.

Yes, I know all his peers are considered to be equally brilliant batsman who have gone to even greater heights since becoming the leader of their side, but Root is English. We don’t do that very well. Cook will prove that we cost him thousands of runs by returning to the ranks and Root, still not completely proven as the best option at three, could well end up sacrificing his own talent for the team. Plus, to be frank, his one and only match as a first class skipper for Yorkshire was frankly disastrous. Under his tactical guidance the opposition chased down about 450 and Yorkshire lost. Mind you, there won’t be many times Rooty has to defend 450 with the current England middle order.

Tales from the Top Flight ■ CHRIS DARWEN chris@costablancapeople.com

The last time I saw a left back that detached from the rest of his team was Ashley Cole’s famous team photo at Roma. You had to feel for Ben Davies at Anfield. He must have really upset someone on the plane up to Merseyside as Pochettino and his men really hung the poor lad out to dry on Saturday night. The thought process that suggests Liverpool are a one man side has hardly had cold water poured on it following Sadio Mane’s first half personal destruction of the side that didn’t feel he was worth that little bit extra in wages over the summer. Mane sent Ben Davies spinning so many different ways he still doesn’t know which way is up, and when Mane fancied a little rest Nathaniel Clyne came galloping past him on the overlap. It may have only been 2-0, but without Hugo Lloris it could have been 7 (seven) for Kloppo’s men who have suddenly burst into 2017 like a stag party who’s plane to Magaluf had been delayed. The main question is, if Pochettino is, as people suggest, such a super fine manager, why didn’t he do anything to stop the thing so obvious that even Gary, sitting at home eating crisps on his sofa, drinking his can of Stella could see it? Danny Rose had his best game of the season for Spurs sitting there all injured. Klopp has urged people “not to go nuts” just because Liverpool have remembered how to win a game of football and insists he is not even

looking at Chelsea who, after their draw at Burnley, lead the table by ten points. Interestingly, or not, if the league was made up purely of the current top six then Liverpool would be top which adds a lot of credibility to my personal belief that if you cannot beat Burnley then you do not deserve to win the league. Actually, Chelsea drew there didn’t they? Ok, make that if you cannot beat Sunderland then you don’t deserve to win the league. Sorry Palace fans. That 7am meeting Big Sam called earlier in the week made a huge improvement to Crystal Palace this weekend. Yes, they only lost 1-0 this time round. “Real Football Men” might go bananas at the thought of the chairman popping into the changing room after the previous week’s 4-0 hammering, but if I saw hundreds of millions of pounds disappearing slowly before my eyes I’d probably want a word too. Leicester are doomed, are they not? Don’t get me wrong, Swansea are much improved after Clement but I think it is about time Sky stopped putting Claudio and his not so merry men through the weekly public humiliation of showing their games. No matter how much the pundits talk up last season’s champions they are going one way, and one way only. That is to Wembley to lift the FA Cup and to the Championship to face bankruptcy when they realise they forgot to insert 50% relegation wage clauses in all those big fancy contracts they dished out as soon as Bocelli hit the

high note last season. Mark Clattenburg apparently apologised to Hull City at half time, having seen a video that showed Arsenal’s opening goal going in off Sanchez’s hand. My favourite part of all this was not the goal itself, but Thierry Henry doing his best to pass judgement on the matter whilst hoping nobody brought up that handball goal against Ireland. I believe the law is still something like “if the hand hits the ball deliberately” or words to that effect. I would do away with that now and just have a sweeping statement that says any hand contact on the ball whatsoever is handball. Yeah, even for the goalkeepers. I mean, Claudio Bravo has been trialling that quite successfully this season, right? Yes, Bravo - the man that Pep includes, still despite having now seen him play, as one of the best goalkeepers in the world - a phrase that insults all the other half decent goalkeepers in the world in one fell swoop. Anyway, I digress. Arsenal edged past Hull 2-0 courtesy of a disputed goal and a penalty. Hardly the ideal warm up for Bayern in the week, a match that Arsenal will typically win by a couple of goals for sure. Or get hammered. One or the other. Now, if I was Arsene and I had actually told Ian Wright that I was leaving at the end of the season I would either be having a right old laugh that I had stitched Wrighty right up by fibbing and watching him tell anyone that would listen or I would be a little miffed that something I had told a former player in confidence was now

international news. Either way, the revelation that Wenger is “nearing the end” of his time at Arsenal is not exactly a revelation. He has been there two decades for crying out loud. Yet again the so called “proper media” are dying for pundits to do their jobs for them and decided that was a story. As mentioned earlier. Burnley left pegged Chelsea back at Turf Moor with Robbie Brady’s fine left footed free kick. Chelsea pretended to be bothered, but whilst everyone else below them seems to have given up the chase they will happily keep picking up the points as and when to seal the Championship. United may well wish that they had started playing like this a little earlier in the season, given the complete averageness of the sides above them right now. Their sixteenth game unbeaten lifted them to the nosebleed territory of fifth, albeit for a couple of hours. Watford were swatted aside 2-0 as Martial got a game for good behaviour and scored. Mourinho believes Zlatan will stay, and Zlatan is targeting two, maybe three trophies this season. That statement tells me that Zlatan is very much counting the Community Shield as a trophy. Ah, these foreigners hey? What can you say to them? Anyway, United may well be spending a lot of time in 6th at the moment, but if they keep going at this rate then they might be the only side that puts up a late challenge to Chelsea. Yeah, I just said that. Don’t look at me like that.

Tony Pulis defended himself better than his WBA players defended their goal at the weekend. West Ham, now facing that part of the season where Andy Carroll is once again injured, managed to find themselves a goal down and being rubbish, to being a goal up in injury time and being rather good, to gifting Albion an injury time equaliser. One thing you cannot accuse the Hammers of is being boring this season. Sorry, Pulis. Mark Hughes, still a little bitter at Saido’s failed drugs test coming to light last weekend outed Tony for calling Ryan Shawcross a “loser” in a voicemail. This claim made Pulis go mad underneath his baseball cap peak, deciding to tell the world the rest of the message that Hughes conveniently forgot to pass on. “Loser? Come on Ryan, you’ve never been that” is Tony’s version of events which hardly sounds like the worst thing the WBA manager is likely to have said to one of his players, current or former. Finally, Bournemouth managed to ship six to Everton last weekend but they didn’t have Victor Valdes in goal, did they? Middlesbrough managed to keep Everton at bay for 90 minutes but kind of forgot the other part of the game which is scoring a goal yourself. I think Boro have scored something like three goals in about twenty eight games this season although, admittedly, that fact may have been embellished somewhat to suggest that Karanka’s side are not known for their attacking prowess.
