Hundreds search for missing boy Some 1,000 police officers, firefighters and volunteers searched on Saturday for an eight-year-old boy whose disappearance four days previously in Almeria has gripped the country. ABRIEL CRUZ was at his grandmother’s home in the small village of Las Hortichuelas when he left to go play at a friend’s house nearby last Tuesday afternoon. He has not been seen since. His relatives alerted police who published a missing person’s alert with a photo of the smiling boy, which went viral in Spain via mobile messaging services and social media. Since then, police and volunteers have been combing the countryside in the area

G

on foot and on horseback, using helicopters and drones to try and locate him. Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido said police were also searching waters off the coast nearby. Cruz’s parents have given several tearful interviews to Spanish media, saying he knew the area well and could not have got lost. “We hope we will get Gabriel back soon and that he will return home with his family, which is where a boy who is only eight should be," his father Angel Cruz told reporters at a press conference, before breaking down in tears. In a twist on Friday, it emerged that a man had been detained this week for stalking Gabriel’s mother Patricia Ramirez, though authorities stressed he was not held in connection with the disappearance of her son. The man, named as Diego Miguel, had become "obsessed" with Ramirez and in

garment was indeed Gabriel’s. They say the report of the clothing Gabriel was wearing when he vanished – a red jacket and black Adidas tracksuit bottoms – did not mention a vest, although as it is an undergarment, it may have been forgotten. The search has now become more ‘selective’, say inspectors, who have cordoned off the area around the reservoir pools and water treatment plant in the Las Negras sewage works close to the footpath which leads to the San Pedro bay. This time, the search continued in the dark, and detectives were out all night. They are accompanied by the nowfamous 12-year-old Belgian shepherd dog Elton, one of the Guardia Civil’s 550 sniffer dogs, who helped to find the body of Madrid sixth-former Diana Quer on New Year’s Eve in a disused warehouse in Galicia, where she had been dumped after being raped and murdered 16 months earlier.

2016 was ordered by a judge to stay away from her and given a threemonth suspended jail sentence. However, he broke this order several times, including in the hours when Gabriel disappeared, and was detained for this reason authorities said. Police said they are investigating the circumstances, but Angel Cruz stressed Saturday he believed the man had nothing to do with his son’s disappearance.

Latest development A child’s vest was found in the rural area near Níjar where Gabriel disappeared. His father identified the item of clothing as being his son’s and on Monday the Guardia Civil carried out DNA tests which confirmed that the

BITE SIZE Habaneras is13 NEWS: A palm tree blew down in the wind on 1st March onto a kiosk on La Libertad de Torrevieja. The strong winds, reaching gusts of over 60 km/h, caused the tree to be uprooted and the trunk fell onto one of the small cabins that line the paseo. Fortunately the kiosk was closed and there were no passers by when it happened at around 8.40pm. The kiosk has been destroyed by the impact and it was fortunate that the bad weather meant that few people were out on the streets. Usually this is an area of the town which is heaving with tourists browsing amongst the stalls on the town’s front. The fire brigade were called out, however, it is the business that maintains the parks and gardens that is responsible for removing the tree. The storm that has caused the destruction and is currently responsible for the arctic conditions in the UK, is known as Storm Emma. Warnings had already been put out about the severity of the storm and the changeable weather is expected to continue. Other impacts of the storm included the disappearance of the Acequión beach. The sand almost vanished completely as the level of water rose, caused by low pressure.

To mark their thirteenth birthday, Habaneras is offering its customers chance to win one of 13 prizes. They will hide 13 unusual ‘cats’ around Torrevieja which will appear each day between 1st to 13th March. If you are one of the lucky people to find one then you should bring it to Habaneras and claim your prize. On the 17th March there will be a grand prize draw at the centre when the winners of the 13 raffle prizes will be announced. Prizes include tickets for the musical Tadeo Jones, a getaway for two and many gifts from their stores. This will be accompanied by a matsuri-style cocktail party with an opportunity to taste sushi and other Japanese delicacies. You can even try some ‘golden’ wine. The birthday of Torrevieja’s commercial centre comes at a difficult time. With the new Sunday trading hours commercial centres like Habaneras will find themselves losing out. A particular concern is that the restaurants and cafes that are based in their facilities will not attract customers on their own. Although they are not obliged to close during the Sunday shut downs, there will be few people in the centres to use them. In order to still keep people coming when shops are no longer trading, Habaneras is advertising ‘Family Sundays’. The shops may be closed but there will be a range of fun family activities to take their place. The activities include recycling workshops, a city vegetable garden from 12pm until 3pm and games, competitions and crafts for children. From 4.30pm until 8.30pm there will be a free zip wire and salsa and bachata dance classes from 5pm until 6pm on Sundays. From 12pm until 6pm there will be a free nanny service with professional childcare

lost control and ran into a wall for reasons unknown. The collision happened at around 6.30am and there were just two people travelling in the car. The driver was uninjured but his passenger was suffering from some injuries and had to be taken to Torrevieja hospital. The accident happened on the road between the beaches of Los Locos and La Mata. A fire engine was called but the driver was able to leave the car without assistance. His passenger, however, needed help and had to be freed from the vehicle. Eventually she was released at around 7.15am and could be transported to hospital.

Changes to Semana Santa Museum Torrevieja town hall now has the go ahead to change the use of the Holy Week, or Semana Santa Museum. The change around will mean that the town hall no longer has to pay rent for the Sea and Salt Museum premises. The allocation of space at the museum now includes the fifth and fourth floor for administrative use by the town council. The third floor will be used by the Sea and Salt Museum and the second and first floor by the Semana Santa Museum. On the ground floor there will be access to the building, reception, information and caretaker’s offices. The first basement will be used for events and conferences and the second basement for the Semana Santa Museum. The third basement will be used for storage. At the moment the fifth floor of the court building is used for the storage of documentation. If this paperwork was removed then it would be possible to open up a new criminal court and have a second court operating in the city. The Sea and Salt Museum and department of health and occupational hazards are currently located on calle Patricio Pérez under a lease agreement. Accommodating them in the museum should mean a saving for the local government. However, not everyone is happy with the allocation of space. Supporters of the Semana Santa museum argue that this will mean that they get to occupy less than half of the surface area of a building that is supposedly for them.

Women of the year awards The councillor for Welfare and Equality has announced the names of the winners of the Woman of 2018 to coincide with international women’s day. An award goes to Angelita Parodi for her personal contributions. Now 80 years old she has overcome many obstacles in her life to raise her family and continues to support children and grandchildren through the economic crisis. A situation shared by many other grandparents. The award for equality goes to Estela Prieto who is the deputy head of the Agrupaciones de Voluntarios de Torrevieja. Her voluntary work has taken her into occupations that are usually monopolised by men and has seen her elected into responsible positions by the men working with her. For example, being elected as the president of the Association Protección Civil de la Vega Baja. Those winning awards were contacted by the mayor, José Manuel Dolón. The winners will receive a commemorative plaque to be presented at a gala at 8pm at the Virgen del Carmen Cutlural Centre on 8th March. Continued on page 6

open in December Murcia’s new airport will be ready for commercial flights to operate from this December, although its actual launch date will depend upon when the various airlines running from it are ready to start. Chairman of airports governing body AENA, Jaime García-Legaz, says the process of checking and signing off the various parts of the future Juan de la Cierva terminal for health, safety and completion will take several months, having started around a week ago. The next step will be drumming up interest from airlines. This new terminal, in the village of Corvera near to Murcia city, will replace the existing terminal in San Javier airport, and will be further away from Orihuela Costa and the surrounding areas for locals to travel to, making Alicante the closest airport. Corvera airport will not start to operate until the last plane has flown out of San Javier, GarcíaLegaz confirmed. The airports will not overlap. He also sought to reassure staff at San Javier that their jobs were safe, as they would continue in their roles but at the new terminal in Corvera. In fact, GarcíaLegaz explained that the new airport is much larger and will create even more jobs than San Javier,

especially as it will be open and running 'morning, afternoon and evening, 365 days a year', and will not have to share its space with military aircraft, as is currently the case at San Javier. Regional government president Fernando López Miras says the Corvera terminal will create 500 directly-linked new jobs and another 4,000 indirect positions for every million passengers who fly into or out of Murcia. Initial forecasts suggest Corvera airport will transport around four million passengers annually, helping to give the region's economy and tourism industry a huge boost. The new terminal will be named Juan de la Cierva airport after the Murciaborn engineer who invented the gyroplane, or autogyro, which first took off 95 years ago last month, in February 1923. García-Legaz believes that Murcia's new airport will rival that of Alicante, just 80 kilometres north in the next province – a major international terminal which serves the Costa Blanca holiday belt and the whole of the province of Alicante and part of that of Valencia. “Ours is going to be in the same league,” he said.

Street food in Orihuela Orihuela is hosting its third edition of the Food Trucks Gastronomy Fair from 9th to 11th March. During those dates the Gabriel Miró roundabout in the city centre will be full of food and entertainment to suit every palate. Announcing the event Councillor Sofia Álvarez said: "There will be fifteen vintage-inspired caravans that will delight all visitors and citizens of Orihuela. All of the food is freshly prepared and cooked to order and will feature dishes from all over the world such as Argentina, Italy, Chile, Mexico and America and options for vegetarian or vegan food, at affordable prices and including activities for the whole family." Those who go along to the fair can also enjoy a live performance by The Fendetestas on Friday night and the music from the band The Roomer on Saturday, along with Edy the clown who will

entertain the little ones. On Sunday several different children's activities will be featured, including a cooking workshop. The event starts on Friday 9th March from 6pm to midnight, Saturday from midday until midnight and Sunday from midday to 6pm.

Caught by the socks BITE SIZE

KEEPING TRACK OF THE TREES Torrevieja is to have its own register of important and significant trees. The idea is that if a formal note is made of the trees that the town wants to protect, that this might prevent unscrupulous builders from cutting them down with impunity. The trees will be catalogued and the work will be done through the issuing of a small contract by the Department of the Environment. It is intended that this will then be circulated amongst the local school and adult population. The fact

finding will take place over a year and each of the trees will have its own card with the aim of creating a database of notable trees. The trees will include fig trees, carob, eucalyptus and of course, palm trees and those that are considered to be of local interest will be included and, it is hoped, protected. Trees might be registered for their biological, landscape, historical or social contribution. Suzanne O’Connell

they were sure the owners were out they would jump over the fences and force entry at the weakest point. The thefts were usually committed between 11am and 2pm during the day. Once the police had confirmed the identity of those suspected they were traced to three properties. The investigating officers knew that they sold the goods almost immediately after they were stolen. However, in one of the houses of the thieves, they found some

GOT CHA !

Nine pairs of socks implicated a family gang of thieves who had carried out eight house robberies. The band broke into villas in Torrevieja and had stolen objects worth more than €100,000. The gang has been arrested by the Guardia Civil. Altogether the five members of the group, four of them family, were aged between 20 and 52 years old. It is believed that they have been responsible for at least seven break ins, stealing a motor vehicle and a road safety crime. Charges have also been made of injury and damage. From their homes the police have recovered items worth more than €100,000 and another two vehicles. The burglaries took place during the month of December from houses in La Siesta, Torrevieja. The police noted the details of the crimes including the days and times when they happened. They believed that a group were using different cars, roaming the area and selecting where they would strike next. The father was the driver, although it is now known he did not have a driving licence. This family were considered to be suspicious as they were seen to change their rented car frequently. Whilst in a tourist area it is normal to see different rented cars it is not usual for these to be swapped so often. After surveillance the officers discovered that the group included a married couple, their two sons and another woman. They generally hired the cars in which they committed the robberies, although they did resort to stealing one – presumably to save on the hire cost. The gang would watch bungalows and town houses for a few days and establish the habits of the owners. When

The houses that had been robbed usually belonged to pensioners. Because of this the thieves had accumulated a range of items such as blood sugar and blood pressure measures. They also found a number of luxury watches, mobile telephones, sun glasses, jewellery and a variety of electronic items. Whilst under arrest in the barracks the thieves were violent and aggressive and caused damage to one of the doors of the cells. Only the father has been detained in prison. Suzanne O’Connell

Measures to stop flooding Aguamed, in conjunction with the town hall, continue to look for ways of reducing the amount of flooding and surface water that can bring Torrevieja to a near stand still. Their latest efforts have centred around the Avenida de las Cortes Valenciancas where flooding makes passage difficult at the crossing between la Avenida Rosa Mazón. The measures that are taken include digging a trench next to the road in order to capture the surplus water. It is estimated that this precaution will cost the town €250,977.

Rice of Torrevieja This will be the sixth ‘Arroces de Torrevieja’ event to be held in the town. Between the 5th and 11th March there will be 25 associations offering rice dishes as part of a menu. It is a good opportunity to try out the different ways in which rice can be served and includes some traditional dishes. For the cost of between €18 and €30, depending on the establishment, you will be served the rice dish, a sweet and a drink.

Shared taxi scheme motors ahead

Tax breaks for the elderly

Orihuela Councillor Begoña Cuartero and her counterpart, Torrevieja Councillor Javier Manzanares, met recently to reach an agreement regarding a shared taxi service, on that ‘would favour the local taxi industry and passengers from both municipalities in the summer months’. They discussed the issues around providing a better service such as the deficiencies that occur in the summer due to the increased population and therefore the sheer numbers of passengers, the traffic jams on the N-332 between the two towns because that stretch is still not dual carriageway. The pair agreed that taxis from either municipality should be able to pick up passengers from stops at the following places: Orihuela Costa: Playa Flamenca, Zenia Boulevard, Cabo Roig and Villamartín. Torrevieja: Paseo de la Libertad, Industrial Estate, Bus Station and Torrevieja Hospital. The inter-urban tariff would apply to these journeys and the service will be available from 16th June to 15th September, 2018, as requested by the taxi associations from both municipalities. Councillor Cuartero said that this would be a pilot project that will be evaluated at the end of the summer in order to decide whether to continue in coming years. However, before the scheme can go head permission must be granted first by the Valencian Government Transport Office in Alicante. The request has been made and both Councillors seemed confident of a positive reaction.

Income tax for 'very elderly' pensioners will be axed to enable them to fund their care costs in their old age, according to government treasury minister Cristóbal Montoro. As yet, the age from which income tax will be reduced has not been confirmed, but it is also expected to apply to pensioners who are disabled, even those who are much younger. Montoro says the tax deduction – an asyet unconfirmed amount – will be included in the 2018 budget and is 'in recognition of the interest costs' involved in ageing. He says disabled persons of all ages already benefit from income tax reductions, but that these will be reinforced for elderly residents. Despite the former socialist government under José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero's having approved the Law of Dependence in 2007, allowing financial benefits to be paid to the elderly, sick or

A BENEFICIAL MEETING FOR NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH It was a multi-cultural turn out for the San Luis/ La Siesta neighbourhood watch meeting. On Monday 26th February a mixture of English, Spanish, Swiss, Icelandic, Dutch, German, Norwegian and Swedish local residents congregated to discuss issues of relevance to the area. ‘It was a lively and fruitful meeting,’ says president Doug Allen. ‘As with most meetings there continues to be many complaints about the lack of cleaning around the green waste skips and

suggestions have now been made to the council to include additional area cleaning into the new waste contracts.’ Other areas of discussion included motorhome parking, squatters, pet laws and false burglar alarm systems. Sr Javier Rico from the Auditorio was there and was able to find out the views of the group on the events they would like to see hosted. Rico was also able to provide information about events that are already planned, the booking system for

the theatre and web information.’ With the new budget now agreed, there was opportunity to find out more about what’s planned. At the next meeting at 4.30pm on 26th March at Casa Ventura, Councillor Manzanares and Carmen Morate will be attending to answer questions about bus transport and the Guardia Civil, amongst other issues. Anyone who lives in the area is very welcome to attend. Suzanne O’Connell

disabled or to those who care for them, obtaining these funds continues to be a postcode lottery and often involves waits of several years, which is frequently too late for the dependents and the relatives or friends who look after them. Elderly care continues, in Spain, to be largely provided by immediate family, with the burden tending to fall to female relatives, a high number of whom are over 60 – typically the children of much older residents - and often include the spouses or partners of senior citizens. Spain's government hopes to address this in part by freeing up funding for facilities needed for the elderly, or for paying outside carers where no relatives are available to provide care or they have to work full-time. Already, many town councils offer grants towards structural adaptations in homes, such as replacing stairs with lifts, for disabled and very old residents.

Lucky couple foil suitcase theft As regular visitors to the Costa Blanca, Gary and Sharon thought they had everything covered when it came to keeping their possessions safe. Arriving at Alicante airport on Thursday 22nd February they had been through the procedure many times before as they picked up their hire car and set off to Torrevieja. They even took the precaution of removing the hire car sticker before driving to their holiday home. They decided to stop off at Mercadona in San Luis to pick up a few essential items before the final stop, unpacking their luggage and enjoying the first evening of their two-week holiday. With their suitcases in the boot of the car, Gary was careful to check that it was locked before the couple went into the supermarket to buy some groceries. Stood at the checkout and ready to pay for their purchases,Sharon noticed a car parked next to their own and a man stood by it with his car boot open. ‘I did wonder what he was doing but then just thought he was waiting for his wife to come out with the shopping.’ The car was just an ordinary silver SEAT and there was nothing that could have alerted them to what was about to take place. The next time Sharon looked she could see that it wasn’t just the neighbouring car’s boot that was open, but theirs too. ‘I couldn’t believe my eyes,’ explains Sharon. ‘I shouted and we ran out of the shop as quickly as we could. We just left the shopping on the conveyor belt.’ The electronic door couldn’t open quickly

enough for Sharon and Gary who realised that their suitcases were being stolen right under their noses. As they left the store Sharon shouted ‘bandido’ and the couple ran to their car. ‘I could see our suitcases were now on the back seat of his car,’ says Gary. ‘I pushed him out of the way so I could get the cases out. All I was bothered about was returning them to our car and away from the thief.’

‘‘

I couldn’t believe my eyes,’ explains Sharon. ‘I shouted and we ran out of the shop as quickly as we could. We just left the shopping on the conveyor belt... In the meantime people had started to gather around them. ‘It’s not what is seems,’ said the man who had been on the point of driving off with Sharon and Gary’s baggage on the back seat. Placing his hands in the air he asked them not to call the police as one of the onlookers dialled 112. ‘I was really shocked,’ says Sharon. ‘I was shaking. Someone took a photo of the car so we were able to take this to the

Guardia Civil and make a denuncia about the attempted robbery.’ What Sharon and Gary can’t understand is how the man had been able to open their boot without breaking the lock. ‘I had checked it twice before we went into the shop,’ says Gary. ‘What was even stranger was that when we came to put our bags back into the car the boot was still locked. He must have locked it again after he transferred our bags to his own.’ For the couple there are many unanswered questions. Were they followed from the airport and if so, how did the man know they lived in reasonable distance? How did he open the boot and what would have happened if they hadn’t stopped at the supermarket to stock up? Gary and Sharon are a cautious couple. They had followed all the usual pieces of advice and didn’t have anything on display that could have suggested they were tourists just arriving from the UK. The incident, although they count themselves lucky, has shaken them. ‘I’m suspicious of everyone now,’ says Sharon. One piece of good news for the couple, however, is that the thief has now been identified by the police. Sharon and Gary were called back to the barracks to see if they could identify the man from a file containing twelve photographs. They were able to pick him out and now, it is hoped, the police will have sufficient concrete evidence to charge him. Suzanne O’Connell

Changes announced at HELP Vega Baja At the HELP Vega Baja AGM on Tuesday 20th February the momentous decision was made to close the charity’s office in Torrevieja. From the 1st April the office in the town centre will be closed and from Tuesday 3rd April all requests for help and support should be made through their San Miguel Centre. The decision was made because the number of people using the office has dropped dramatically whereas in other areas the demand has increased. ‘We strongly believe,’ explains Michele Masson, the President of Vega Baja, ‘that if we allowed this situation to continue we would be failing in our duty and that your time, efforts and, of course, finances can help people if directed in other ways. I have written to the town hall in Torrevieja and other organisations to reassure them that we are still very much committed to the town and we will always do what we can to support people and like minded charities in the future.’ HELP Vega Baja has had a presence in Torrevieja for over 35 years. Only last year, in an attempt to revive the Torrevieja branch, a complete restructure of the office was carried out. However, this has not made sufficient difference to the numbers using it. ‘We are sad that this decision has had to be taken,’ adds Michele. ‘We are a forward thinking charity and we understand that times are changing and that people now expect to receive advice at the touch of a button.’ As a result of the increased emphasis on the use of the internet to seek advice,

the charity are making sure that their Facebook page and website are current and contain information sheets on popular topics. ‘We are also improving the process of applying for membership online which we are working at with our IT support,’ says Michele. This doesn’t mean that the internet is the only way of receiving advice and support from HELP Vega Baja. Michele and her team will continue to attend meetings in Torrevieja whenever possible and be present at different venues across the town for those people who would like to meet with them. ‘Our Welfare Officer and myself undertake many talks to groups throughout the Vega Baja area and we have asked our Torrevieja volunteers to join us for their expertise on many subjects.’

Good news At the AGM there was also plenty of good news to share too. Over the past year the charity has been able to donate €30,500 to individuals and good causes. ‘Our aim is to build on this in 2018,’ says Michele. ‘Like all charities we know there will be challenges in the year ahead. However, we are confident that with the team we have on board we will face these and continue to be a well-respected charity that the community can continue to depend on.’ Over 2,500 people received advice and information from their San Miguel Centre over the past year. As well as providing vital information, HELP Vega Baja consistently raise money through their

‘We are a forward thinking charity and we understand that times are changing and that people now expect to receive advice at the touch of a button.’

fundraising events, charity shop and Campoamor market. Altogether there has been a 44% increase in net profit. ‘There are exciting times ahead for HELP Vega Baja,’ says Michele. ‘We welcome you to join us on this journey.’ From Tuesday, 3rd April 2018 all requests for help and support should be made via their San Miguel Centre on 966 723 733 or email office@helpvegabaja.com The 24 hour non-medical emergency helpline can also be contacted on this number. For more information about HELP Vega Baja, including how you can join the charity’s team of volunteers, you can contact them via their Facebook Page or email office@helpvegabaja.com or telephone 966 723 733 Monday to Friday from 10 am to 1.30 pm.

WEEKLY EURO UPDATE Last week the pound strengthened by an average of 0.5% against the other dozen most actively-traded currencies. The main focus for sterling was Brexit, and whether the government could come up with a plan that would avoid alienating half the ruling Conservative party. The pound dipped briefly after the downward revision of gross domestic product for the fourth quarter of 2017. It came out at 0.4% and business investment growth came in at zero after an increase of 0.5% in Q3. A disappointing four-point fall in the CBI's Distributive Trades survey of retail sales, from 12% to 8%, got lost among the GDP data and did no real damage. Gfk's index of consumer confidence was a point lower on the month at 10 while the BRC's shop price index was down by an annual 0.8%. Optimism that opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn would commit the Labour party to keeping Britain in the/a EU customs union after Brexit proved unfounded. The question of the Irish border is becoming ever more contentious as the EU rejected the initial proposals of the British government; they are due to present a counter proposal today. The disappointment at not reaching an agreement caused the sterling to track lower across the board by an average of 0.6% late in the week. European Central Bank president Mario Draghi met the European Parliament's Committee on Economic Affairs at the beginning of the week. There had been speculation that he might hint at a wind-down of the bank's asset purchase programme, on which it has so far spent more than â‚Ź2.5tr. No such hint was forthcoming. This was compounded later in the week when Bundesbank president Jens

Weidmann, Mr Draghi's likely replacement next year, echoed these views. The implication is that euro rate increases could be a long time coming. Meanwhile, the ecostats coming out of the Eurozone remain upbeat; .gross domestic product data showed Sweden's economy expanding by 0.9% in the fourth quarter while growth in France, Portugal and Switzerland came in at 0.6%, 0.7% and 0.6% respectively. As in the UK, ecostats have less impact that political and organisational issues in the US at the moment; perhaps because they were a mixed bag. Gross domestic product data showed the economy expanded in the fourth quarter by 0.6%. Personal consumption expenditure, the Federal Reserve's favoured measure of US inflation, was a tick lower than expected at 2.7%. America's residential property market showed pending home sales down by a monthly 4.7%. Jerome Powell struck a note of economic optimism for his testimony to the House Financial Services Committee, which financial markets interpreted as monetary hawkishness. Mr Powell stated that "the FOMC will continue to strike a balance between avoiding an overheated economy and bringing PCE [personal consumer expenditure] price inflation to 2% on a sustained basis". Taken as a whole, the new chairman's testimony implied that the Fed would continue to tighten policy this year. Futures pricing infers 2.9 quarter-percentagepoint rate increases in 2017 and it is not hard to find analysts who put that number closer to four. The dollar responded positively to Mr Powell's comments midweek: it strengthened by two thirds of a cent against the pound and took a full cent off the euro.

Investing isn’t only for the rich and is not too complicated

W

hy invest? This is the deceptively simple ques-tion that it’s difficult to start any guide to investing without asking. But why should anyone bother investing in the first place? The question is difficult, because people invest for many different reasons. They may have a goal they are aiming for, a retirement pot to build, or are simply driven by the desire to grow their wealth. But when all the reasons are weighed up, there is something that unites them and it is to give themselves a better future. In life, we invest time and effort in our family, our home and our work, but the financial world of investing offers an extra element. It provides ordinary people with a simple way of putting their money to work. It allows people to build up their wealth over time, benefiting from the profits and dividends of good companies and the magic of compounding that magnifies those gains over time. Yet despite the potential for better long-term returns, many who have plenty of rainy-day savings stashed away in cash are still reluctant to invest any extra money they save. The main reasons they give are often that they aren’t rich enough yet to invest, they do not want to risk losing money, or it is too complicated. These are valid reasons, but they are not enough to dismiss investing altogether. It’s true, your investments can fall below the price you paid; but this risk is greatly reduced by long-term investing – and is one you must take in order to get a better potential return than on cash. Finally, it’s true that investing does require a little work, but it is surprisingly easy to get started.

TIPS TO SAVE PUMPKIN SEEDS AND TURN GREEN PUMPKINS ORANGE Pumpkins are grown and eaten all around the world for a variety of reasons. Out of the seven continents, only Antarctica is unable to produce pumpkins. Pumpkins, squash and gourds all belong to the same family (Curcubitaceae). The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which is Greek for “large melon". Although pumpkins are usually orange or yellow, some fruits are dark green, pale green, orange-yellow, white, red and gray. There are many reasons why you may want to save your squash or pumpkin seeds so you can grow them next year: - Perhaps your plant this year produced outstanding squash or pumpkins. - Perhaps you found a new variety or perhaps you bought an unusual heirloom pumpkin or gourd at the market that you would like to grow at home. - Because pumpkins, squash and gourds come in so many sizes, shapes, colours, and varieties, there are as many reasons to save their seeds and grow them again next year. It does not really matter - the good news is that saving pumpkin, squash and gourd seeds is easy, even for beginner gardeners. How to save squash, pumpkin and gourd seeds: 1. After you have cut open the pumpkin for decorations or for cooking, remove the seeds and pulp. 2. Hand separate the seeds from the pulp and rinse the seeds with cool water. 3. There will be more seeds inside the pumpkin than you will want to plant, so once you have the seeds rinsed, look at them carefully and choose the largest seeds you can find. Larger seeds will have a better chance of germinating and growing healthy, sturdy vines. 4. Transfer seeds to paper towels and blot dry. 5. Transfer seeds to baking paper or wax paper and allow to dry overnight and make sure they are spaced out - otherwise the seeds will stick to one another. Pumpkin seeds are sticky and if left to dry on paper towels, the seeds will stick to the paper

towels. 6. Once the seeds are nice and dry so they won´t stick, place the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on paper towels to dry further. 7. Place the seeds in a cool, dry place and continue to dry the seeds for four to six weeks. 8. Gather seeds and place in an envelope, like a small manila envelope. Make sure to label your envelope and note the kind of pumpkin or squash and the year. Store the seeds in the envelope, keeping them cool and dry. 9. You can also store them in a jar with an antidesiccant (those little packets of silica gel that come with new coats, shoes and purses). Note: Some hybrid varieties do not come true from seed, but you will never know until you try. How to turn green pumpkins orange: If you live in an area with winter frost, the frost can get to your pumpkin plants and kill them while green pumpkins are still on them. This can be disappointing after an entire summer of hard work. Well no worries, just follow these steps to help turn green pumpkins orange: 1. Harvest your green pumpkins. Cut pumpkins off the vine and leave at least 4 inches (10 cm) of vine on each top for a handle. 2. Clean your pumpkins to avoid rot and mold. Carefully wash any dirt off, dry them, and then wipe them down with a diluted bleach solution. 3. Put the pumpkins in a dry, warm, sunny location. Pumpkins need sunlight and warmth to turn orange and to avoid rot. 4. Place the green side of the pumpkins towards the sunlight. Rotate the pumpkins from time to time to allow the sunlight to reach the greener parts. Continue to rotate the pumpkins evenly for an even change to orange. Note: This process may take a week or up to several weeks depending upon how green your pumpkins are.

WELCOME TO PHUKET with Vivalia Travel Phuket is one of the southern provinces of Thailand and the largest island. The most popular tourist area on Phuket is Patong Beach on the central west coast.

Phuket is one of the southern provinces of Thailand. It consists of the island of Phuket, the country's largest island, and another 32 smaller islands off its coast. It lies off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Phuket Province has an area of 576 square kilometres (222 sq mi), somewhat less than that of Singapore, and is the secondsmallest province of Thailand. It formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber, and enjoys a rich and colorful history.

Geography Phuket is the largest island in Thailand. The most popular (and overcrowded) tourist area on Phuket is Patong Beach on the central west coast, perhaps owing to the easy access to its wide and long beach. Most of Phuket's nightlife and its shopping is in Patong, and the area has become increasingly developed. Patong means "the forest filled with banana leaves" in Thai. South of Patong lie Karon Beach, Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach, and around the southern tip of the island, Nai Han Beach and Rawai. Climate Under the Köppen climate classification, Phuket features a tropical monsoon climate (Am). Due to its proximity to the equator, in the course of the year, there is little variation in temperatures. The city has an average annual high of 32 °C (90 °F) and an annual low of 25 °C (77 °F). Phuket has a dry season that runs from December through March and a wet season that covers the other

eight months. However, like many cities that feature a tropical monsoon climate, Phuket sees some precipitation even during its dry season. Phuket averages roughly 2,200 millimetres (87 in) of rain.

Economy Since the 1980s, the sandy beaches on the west coast of the island have been developed as tourist destinations, with Patong, Karon, and Kata being the most popular. Since the 2004 tsunami, all damaged buildings and attractions have been restored. Phuket is being intensely developed, with many new hotels, apartments, and houses under construction. Phuket has 60,000 hotel rooms for its 9.1 million annual visitors

Attractions • Two Heroines Monument , is a monument in Amphoe Thalang, a memorial statue of the heroines Thao Thep Kasattri (Kunying Jan) and Thao Sri Sunthon (Mook), who rallied islanders in 1785 to repel Burmese invaders. Hat Patong is Phuket's most developed beach and is 3 kilometres (1.9 mi)-long. It is 15 km from Phuket town. Patong is mostly made up of hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and various tourist attractions. Daytime activities are primarily centered on the beach with watersport activities. Patong is equally well known for its nightlife, centered on Soi Bangla. The northern end of Patong Bay is called Kalim and is a popular place for viewing the sunset and for surfing between

April and September each year. • Hat Karon is the second largest of Phuket's tourist beaches, approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) from town. Large resort complexes line the road behind the shoreline, but the broad beach itself has no development. The southern point has a coral reef stretching toward Kata and Poo Island. There is also its sister beach, Karon Noi. • Kamala Beach, Hat Kamala is a large beach approximately 16 km (10 mi) north of Patong Beach. The beach is undeveloped with coral reefs on the north side and surfing in the low season. • Wat Chalong is where stands the cast statue of Luang Pho Cham, who helped the people of Phuket put down the Angyee, or Chinese Coolie Rebellion, in 1876 during the reign of Rama V. There are also statues of Luang Pho Chuang, and Luang Pho Cham, abbots of the temple during later times. • Phuket Pearl Farm located about one kilometer offshore from Phuket's east coast close to coconut island. Phuket Pearl Farm can be accessed only by boat. • The Big Buddha of Phuket, is on the peak of a mountain near Muang Phuket, or Phuket town . The image is 45 m in height and covered in white Burmese marble. • Old Phuket Town in Phuket town, around Thalang, Dibuk, Yaowarat, Phang Nga, and Krabi Roads. The architecture is SinoPortuguese-style.

Mortgages in Spain go down again Eurozone interest rates have fallen again, ending February on 0.191 percent and reducing the average Spanish mortgage by €54 a year. Experts believe the rate, known as the Euribor, will remain below zero for the whole of 2018. A slight rise in January, to 0.189 percent, proved temporary and the rate is once again at an historic low. Based upon a 20year mortgage of €120,000 on a 'Euribor +1 percent' contract – the average type of home loan in Spain - this means an annual saving of €54.12, or €4.51 a month. The Euribor went into minus figures in February 2016 for the first time in history in an attempt to help the Eurozone recover from the ongoing recession, and has not gone above 0 percent since then. Analyst Joaquín Robles from XTB says until the Eurozone reaches its inflation objective of 2 percent, there is no chance the Euribor will rise. “In September, the Central European Bank (BCE) will decide again whether or not to continue with its current debt-buying programme or whether prolong it in line with the evolution of inflation,” Robles explains. “However, the current longterm previsions lead us to believe

we will not see an increase in interest ratest until at least the middle of 2019, so we expect the Euribor to continue below zero for the whole of 2018.” But Robles warns savers should not allow themselves to become confused by this situation, since the current length of a mortgage loan is typically 25 years, and the current price of money could well increase during this time. “In the event that the economy continues to grow within the next five years, Eurozone interest rates could rise to up to 3 percent, which would lead to an increase on an average €100,000 mortgage payable over 25 years of about €3,000 a year, or €250 a month,” Robles explains. Fortunately for Spanish mortgage holders, interest rate changes do not present a great deal of insecurity – unlike in the UK, where rate changes affect mortgage repayments from month to month, home loans in Spain are reviewed annually, on the anniversary of when they were taken out. This means homeowners have a whole year to keep an eye on Euribor trends and, in the unlikely event that these look set to rocket over a short time – something that has not happened in a decade, when rates peaked at

around 5.6 percent - they have time to make arrangements to change their loan to a fixed-rate version. Given this, fixed-rate mortgages in Spain are rare, since they can often end up costing the homeowner far more money. Good news for existing and future property owners in Spain is that they will not have to worry about their mortgage payments shooting up over 2018 and, if Robles' predictions about a rise to 3 percent in five years come true, they have several years ahead on their hands to monitor rate changes and act accordingly before their payments rise too much. But the difference between the current Euribor rates and the highs of 10 years ago on the cited average mortgage of €120,000 over 20 years is roughly 50 percent of monthly payments, or around €300 to €400 a month depending upon the type of contract held.

Spain accused of restricting freedom of speech by Amnesty International In its annual report on the state of human rights in countries across the world, Amnesty International has criticised Spain for making excessive terrorism allegations against people expressing a difference of opinion on social media.

“Authorities pressed criminal charges against people who had expressed opinions that did not constitute incitement to a terrorism-related offence and fell within the permissible forms of expression under international human rights law,” reads the report, which was published last week. According to the document, 20 people were found guilty of glorifying terrorism online last year, including a young woman named Cassandra Vera who was sentenced to two and a half years in jail after making “a few jokes” on Twitter about the 1973 assassination of Luis Carrero

Blanco, who was the Spanish Prime Minister towards the end of the Franco dictatorship. Dozens of people were prosecuted for “glorification of terrorism” and “humiliation of victims” on social media networks,” the report adds. The document mentions the case of puppeteers who were detained in pre-trial custody for five days for “supporting terrorism and inciting hate” in 2016. Amnesty International has also condemned the government’s response to the Catalan secessionist drive. During the illegal referendum on 1st October, the report argues that Spanish police used excessive force against peaceful protesters opposing a police operation. “The police fired blank cartridges and rubber bullets, seriously injuring one person and causing him to lose the sight in one eye,” the report continues. According to Amnesty International, “some authorities disproportionately restricted the rights to freedom of expression and a peaceful assembly” following a decision by the Constitutional Court to ban the Catalan independence

referendum. The report also makes reference to the pre-trial detention of pro-independence leaders Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sànchez on charges of sedition and rebellion, calling them “very broadly defined offences.”

Immigrants Spain’s treatment of immigrants has also come under attack in the report, which says Spain has failed to meet its commitment to relocate 15,888 refugees, and criticizes government for deporting two African immigrants without checking their identity, allowing them access to a lawyer, translators or a doctor in 2017 – a case that the European Court of Human Rights said was illegal. The Spanish government is also criticised for continuing to reduce public funding for social housing and closing investigations into crimes committed during the Civil War and under the dictatorship of Francisco Franco. The report adds that authorities have also failed to take measures to locate and identify the thousands of victims who remain buried in mass graves.

She wants to be vegan

Worried for my daughter

My daughter is 16 and is friends with a girl at school who is vegan. My daughter has always been impressionable, and now she wants to be vegan. I am not opposed to the principle, but I feel she will not stick to it and go back to her old ways sooner or later, because this is how she is. It’s costing me a fortune to buy the expensive meat substitutes she wants, and I am having to read every label and make different foods for everyone.

My 10 year old daughter has spent every weekend with her Dad since we divorced. My ex has informed me that he is moving to his girlfriend’s house. This wouldn’t be a problem except my daughter does not get along with this woman’s teenage son, who has been nasty to her. My husband is aware of this and until now he has made sure they don’t have much contact.

Choosing not to eat meat is admirable, however if you are having trouble affording the special food, then you could ask her to find a part time job to help pay for it. She should take responsibility for her choices, plan her own meals and read labels for herself, and you can tell her you will help. You also need to make sure she is getting all the vitamins she needs, and a trip to the GP would be good. This will help her to see you are taking it seriously also.

As your ex was mindful of the situation with his girlfriend‘s son, he may well have considered the potential problem of them being under the same roof. You don’t say whether there is a Court agreement for the amount of time your daughter spends with your husband, and you need to have a conversation with your ex about access and visitation. If there are any issues, and you can’t both agree, you should get advice from your legal representative in this matter. At ten years old your daughter may have her opinion and wishes taken into consideration also.

Selling your home? Rebecca Serwotka Your favourite local property expert, of Inmobiliaria Real Estate Agents in Ciudad Quesada & published author of “Moving Forward – 25 Essential Rules For Buying & Selling Real Estate Without Going Crazy.” Request your FREE copy today!

Enjoy an excerpt from our book – Moving Forward: No matter where you are in life, or your home is very likely one of your largest investments. You’ll care for it, invest in décor, furnishings and upgrades, and by the time you’re ready to sell it you will have had many different experiences inside those walls. The home becomes more than just a house, it becomes the place where life existed, flourished, and grew. It’s the place families were strengthened and children raised, the place where infants were sung to in the night. By the time you sell your home, it has become a place where memories dwell, and much more than a house. So how will you navigate all the decisions that need to be made when it’s time to part with your home? Choosing the right Real Estate professional is key. Homeowners and Agents should have a unified goal in mind when a property goes up for sale, and that goal is to get the home sold in the least amount of time and netting the largest amount of money. When the sale of your home remains faithful to this principle, the transaction has a happy ending. Everyone wins. So why, then, do some homeowners lose? Why do houses sit on the market for years, or sell under value? Why do deals tank at the last minute due to miscommunication or contractual error?

Real Estate is a business, just like anything else. And choosing the right business partner is key. Your home sale (and the purchase of another) will hinge on the success of your Real Estate professional and his or her business acumen and communication skills. Your home sale will go smoothly if the Agent has done her or his homework, asked the right questions, and prepared the buyer and /or seller appropriately. In other sales industries, a salesperson would have several customer interactions via telephone or face-to-face, conduct in-depth discovery questions to fully understand expectations and motivations. However, in a typical Real Estate transaction, you may have one or two meetings before a listing is awarded to someone. That isn’t much time to understand someone’s business expertise. The truth is, most homeowners make their decision to choose a Real Estate agent based on likability. But you wouldn’t choose a banker or a surgeon on personality alone, because it’s really about much more than that. Selling your biggest investment will involve skill. The best agents are those who are making the most money for their clients and are doing it more easily than their competitors. They have negotiation skills, sales ability, and build relationships easily. These agents are skilled at quickly understanding the individual personalities they are dealing with and uncovering motivations that will affect the foundation of a single business transaction. They’re not easily flustered, dramatic, emotional, or high maintenance. Regardless of the motivation, the experience should be smooth, rewarding, and prosperous.

Spanish government Goodbye and thanks to the admits to chronic Flower Club police shortage Spain’s national law enforcement agencies are low on manpower. On 31st October, the National Police and Civil Guard were 20,800 officers short: of the 163,491 who should have been in active service, the real figure was 142,691, and that included recruits at training academies, according to Interior Ministry data. The shortage was clearly visible during the Catalan separatist challenge, said Ramón Cosío, a spokesman for the majority Unified Police Union (SUP): “All the positions were not filled, and they had to send in 6,000 more officers from other parts of Spain.” In May of last year, the SPP police union asked Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido for a bonus for police officers stationed in Catalonia to compensate the “social pressure” they faced from separatists. In Lleida province, there are 136 national police officers serving out of a target staff of 211, representing a 35.5 percent shortage. The Civil Guard is short 20 percent in the same province, where there are 417 officers instead of 524. While Lleida may be the most extreme example, the situation extends nationwide. Overall, the National Police needs some additional 13,000 recruits, while the Civil Guard is looking to hire 7,426 more.

Miguel Ángel Heredia, a deputy for the Socialist Party (PSOE) in Congress, said that under the Mariano Rajoy administration there has been a “brutal” cut in officer numbers at both national law enforcement agencies. Heredia, who had requested the figures from the Popular Party (PP) government, said they prove that “the PP favors private security to the detriment of public security.” But police unions and Civil Guard associations feel that the shortage is caused by reduced public job offers during the crisis years. Until 2015, there were fewer than 1,000 openings a year. “It is necessary to establish a fixed turnover rate that is above political and economic ups and downs. Spain cannot afford to make cuts to security,” said Cosío, of SUP. “For years we fell well short of covering the positions of retiring officers,” added Javier Montes, vicepresident of the Union of Officials (UO). The Interior Ministry blames the economic crisis for the shortage, and insists that the next round of hiring will make up for it. But the police union Sindicato Profesional de Policía (SPP) is not as optimistic: its spokesman, José Ángel Gutiérrez, said that “it will be at least eight years before we minimally make up for the shortage.”

Torrevieja Flower Club has been a very popular local club, operating in the townfor the past thirty years. The organisers have arranged floral demonstrations and coach outings at regular intervals and it has been a major fund raising organisation, not only to keep themselves going but to donate to worthwhile causes. Most recently the club presented a cheque to Councillor Carmen Morate of €1,500 to benefit the organisation Animalistas Torrevieja which helps provide care for the lost and found animals in Torrevieja. Animalistas Torrevieja were founded in 2012 and volunteers help at the animal shelter and in other ways, supporting the welfare of animals. They assist with the adoption of animals, the castration of cats programme, animal foster homes and help the animals to socialise. A cheque was also presented to the Stroke Support group. The group are based in La Siesta and has offered support since 2007 to those people who have suffered from or are supporting someone who has had a stroke.

As a result, the committee has found it more difficult to recruit and it’s not an easy job to make sure that the club continues to be a success. There is a lot of hard work and fundraising involved including supporting and entertaining the flower demonstrators who must be brought over from the UK and are accommodated during their stay. Sandra Lambe joined the Torrevieja flower club 25 years ago and has been the chair lady over the past 12 years. She is sad to see the club fold but no one has been prepared to step into her boots. She has decided to step down in order to spend more time with her husband who has suffered from ill health. ‘I do hope that someone will in the future start the club The Flower Club present their cheque again,’ says Sandra. ‘It is a shame that the club has had to close.’ She hopes that there will still be A loss to the local area opportunities to enjoy floral Torrevieja’s Flower Club was started thirty demonstrations, however. ‘There is a years ago by Margaret Atherton and floral club in Moraira so I will get a coach Alma Villiers.

Donation to homeless men One of the Costa Blanca’s favourite band’s has decided to change its name and reform as the Royal British Legion Concert Band Spain. The original band was formed in 1993 when seven musicians from various musical backgrounds came together and formed The Oompah band. With no other bands in the region they were in great demand so the Oompah Band formed two additional bands, The Vega Baja Big Band and the Phoenix Concert Band. Since those days, the band has played at hundreds of events around the Costa Blanca. It has also seen the arrival of their new Musical Director, David Last. David has vast experience of the music world, including service with the Queens Own Buffs and at the Royal Military School of Music at Kneller Hall. He was also the principle at the Lyceum School of Music in Manchester, he had his own youth band and for a time he was also a woodwind player with the Territorial Army Band of the Royal Artillery. Following the arrival of the new MD, many of the band members felt that a new stimulus was needed for the band, so after consultation with senior members of the Royal British Legion, the decision was taken by the band to reform under their new name. However the transition is not quite complete as the MD is determined to provide the band with a completely new

image as they join the long list of bands that are currently affiliated to the Military Charity. He is now in the process of having formal jackets tailored for every member of the new band, together, of course, with new banners for their music stands. It is hoped that the costs of the new clothing and equipment will be covered by sponsorship and donations from local businesses. Already, two pledges of 500 euro each have been made by 'IBEX Insurance' and by the UK company 'Surface Protection'. More funds are still needed though to cover the remaining costs, so the RBL are now seeking any company or business that might like to help with those costs. Additional information can be obtained by email at: orihuelacosta.chairman@gmail.com We do know that the music of the RBL Concert Band Spain will be wide and varied, ranging from swing, through classical to musicals. Since their new launch, the Royal British Legion Concert Band Spain continue to rehearse every Tuesday 1.30pm – 4.30pm at the Municipal Library in San Miguel de Salinas. Currently there are a number of vacancies in the band for musicians of all nationalities and in all sections. For more information please call David Last on 638 10 80 78 or Gloria on 679 576 591

Imagine living without electricity, running water, sanitation – all the conveniences of modern living. People living rough on waste land in Orihuela Costa face just that. But now they have a petrol-driven generator, provided by a local church and a charity, and at least can charge batteries to have electric lighting and can use low-powered electric appliances. It’s all thanks to the contributions from the congregation of the International Christian Assembly in Torrevieja and Help at Home Costa Blanca, who jointly bought the 200 euro generator. It was presented to those living rough by Carmen Perez, president of the charity and church pastor Rafael Restrepo. In addition, the church and charity have given the homeless in the area food parcels, blankets, bedding, clothing, cooking utensils and personal hygiene items. It was the idea of Eileen Mayes, past president of the charity and a member of the church who realised there was a group of people living from hand to mouth beyond the reach of social services’ facilities. “There are a multitude of reasons why people end up homeless or living rough – mental problems, marriage break-ups, things going terribly wrong in their lives which they cannot cope with. There is no excuse for any country in the developed world to allow people to slip through the net and turn their back on them,” said Eileen. Pastor Raphel agreed. “It is wrong for

people here in Spain to have to live this way and there should be somewhere people can go where they have a permanent roof over their heads and have the basic needs for modern living.” Carmen added: “There is some

town and the surrounding villages.” Eileen added: “We need to get people on the coast organised to get this dreadful state of affairs sorted. People forced to live rough because of a lack of social services care, are out of sight and

accommodation, but this is in Orihuela town, miles away from the coast and there is no provision here. Sadly the council in Orihuela think most people on the coast are all financially secure second home owners who come here for holidays. “The truth is far from that. Sadly there are too many expats living on the coast who don’t register on the Padron, don’t vote and don’t figure on council statistics, and as the Padron is used to allocate funds per area, much money which should go on providing facilities on the coast instead goes to Orihuela

out of mind. But a lack of council funding for Orihuela Costa is there for everyone to see every day of the week. It’s staring you in the face with roads full of unrepaired potholes, of pavements not maintained, and if you need an ambulance or fire service be prepared to wait ages because they have to come from quite a distance. Lives are at risk and it needs to be sorted.” She added: “These homeless need to have a secure home in which to live. Not be living under the constant threat of eviction on top of all the other hardships they are facing.”

Spain urged to create independent anti-racism body The Council of Europe is calling on Spain to “urgently” create an independent equality body. Spain and the micro-state of San Marino are the only members of the 47-strong Council that still lack an organisation specifically designed to tackle racism. The report by the Council's European Commission Against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), which was published recently, also criticised the lack of measures to integrate migrants, as well as the segregation of Roma children. While the report acknowledged that

there is less hate speech in Spain than in other European countries, it said that the government was not doing enough to address racism. In 2009, the Spanish government created the Council for the Elimination of Racial or Ethnic Discrimination to monitor racist behaviour. But this body was never independent – it works within the Ministry of Health – and has taken very

little action over the past years. In the report, the Council of Europe said that it “has been left practically inactive” and lacks leadership as its president stepped down in 2014. Budget cutbacks have also weakened measures against racism. According to the report, there has not been any integration strategy for foreigners in Spain since 2014. The end of the austerity programs should translate into stronger antidiscrimination policies, says the study. The Council has also called on the

Spanish government to make the schooling of Roma children a priority. Although the European Commission has sometimes cited Spain as a leader in social integration, the report by the Council of Europe – which is independent from the European Union – argues that “re-housing measures have contributed to residential and school segregation.” Only 45 percent of

Roma children complete compulsory education, the report notes. The situation is not much better for other vulnerable communities, like non-EU immigrants. According to the report, 44 percent of non-EU migrant children are school drop-outs. “Substantial investment in education is needed to ensure Roma children, as well as children from outside of the EU, at least finish compulsory education,” said Jean-Paul Lehners, president of the ant-racist commission of the Council of Europe. The Council also warns that migrants in Spain were harmed by the health reforms of 2012, and called for the situation to addressed “as soon as possible” so that everyone may fully access all public services – not just emergency services as was established for people without legal status in Spain. The Council of Europe has reported “thousands of cases” in which foreigners were refused public health coverage. While the report says that the use of racist terms in the mainstream Spanish political discourse is rare, it points to a few examples including Javier Maroto, the vice-secretary general of the Popular Party (PP). In 2014, while mayor of Vitoria, he said in a radio interview that Algerian and Moroccan people “only register as residents of the city to claim social benefits.” A PP mayor of Badalona was also criticised for linking

insecurity with the arrival of migrants. Media organisations did not escape the Council’s criticism: “Their tendency to sensationalism and alarmism concerning migration leads to an unjustified focus on the nationality of migrants suspected of criminal activities and a general association of migration and delinquency.” For the first time, the report analysed anti-discrimination measures for the LGBT community. The Council of Europe praised the government’s approach but said that hate crimes must be recorded and pursued correctly.

Online racism The internet, especially social media, has become one of the main ways to share hate messages and discriminate against others. The Council of Europe recommends that Spain “use its regulatory powers” to ensure internet service providers and social network giants help address the issue. It also suggests that the government harden civil and administrative legislation against hate messages posted on social networks. Racist and xenophobic acts online have been criminalised in Spain since 2015. The number of cases of inciting hate on the internet has soared from 40 in 2015 to 99 in 2016. This is likely to be much higher given that not all cases appear before the courts, says the report.

Repsol profits up on higher oil prices Spain's oil giant Repsol has announced that rising oil prices and increased output - as the group resumed activity in Libya -have helped boost its bottom-line in 2017. Repsol said in a statement that net profit rose 22 percent to 2.1 billion euros ($2.6 billion) last year, the highest in six years, even if the figure fell short of analysts' expectations. A general increase in production and "the slight recovery of crude oil and gas prices beginning in June" contributed to the rise, the statement added. Its upstream division of exploration and production saw adjusted net profit increase 12-fold to 632 million euros, as production was resumed in Libya, following a stoppage there for most of 2016 due to unrest. The group also made a major onshore oil find in Alaska, which will yield an estimated 1.2 billion barrels of light crude. The other big discovery took place in Trinidad and Tobago, where Repsol uncovered its largest gas volume in five years. Meanwhile its downstream division, which includes refining and trading, posted adjusted net profit of 1.877 billion euros, a slight dip from 2016.

Beast from the East hits Spain An extremely cold weather front nicknamed “The Beast from the East” reached Spain last week. The polar front had caused five deaths in Spain – and another 20 in Europe – as a result of the extremely low temperatures and snow hitting the continent via 'Storm Emma' (nicknamed the Beast from the East), a freezing front coming from Siberia and the Atlantic and clashing in the middle. Numerous road closures and transit delays were also plaguing Spain by Thursday as heavy rain, snow and winds of up to 100 km/h buffeted many parts of Spain. A municipal worker died in the Andalusian town of Hinojos, in Huelva province, after being crushed by a pine tree while he was out removing fallen branches, the emergency service 112 reported. And a 65-year-old man died in the morning in the Basque town of Galdakao after slipping on the snowcovered sidewalk, falling and hitting the back of his head against the ground, the

Basque security department reported. Two others have died in a car crash on the road between Albalate de Cinca and Binaced in the Pyrénéen province of Huesca in Aragón, and a ski instructor has been killed in an avalanche at the station in Formigal, Huesca, whilst skiing off-piste. In terms of travel delays, air and ground transportation slowed down or ground to a halt in northern Spain as snow continued to fall in parts of Aragón, Castilla y León, Navarre, Galicia, La Rioja, Catalonia and the Basque Country. More than 280 roads are shut off or traffic brought to a standstill across the country due to snow, whilst tailbacks of tens of kilometres have been reported in Catalunya due to a region-wide ban on lorries on its roads. Flights were cancelled on the island of Lanzarote and in the Basque city of Bilbao, 25 roads were closed off to traffic and nearly 30,000 students stayed home after schools decided to close for the day. Bilbao airport was temporarily shut

down as cleaning crews worked to clear the runways. There were also delayed flights in San Sebastián, Pamplona and Logroño. The railway operator Renfe said that high-speed trains are running slower today on some lines due to a build-up of ice and snow. Commuter trains in the Basque Country were also experiencing delays. Around 300 roads have been affected to some degree by the icy and snowy conditions. Emergency services in the northwest region of Galicia logged around 60 incidents, particularly in Ourense province. In Castilla y León, five stretches of local roads have been closed off, said the national traffic authority DGT. Snow, rainfall and gusting winds added to the misery from Thursday in numerous provinces, especially in the regions of Extremadura, Andalusia and the Canary Islands. Málaga and Granada are bracing for rainfall of up to 30 litres per square meter per hour, and winds could reach 90 km/h. The weather service has

also issued alerts for rough sea conditions on the coasts of Andalusia, Canary Islands and the Catalan area of Ampurdán. The polar vortex is affecting Spain, where all autonomous communities were on alert for adverse weather conditions, after pummelling central and Western Europe. On Monday, Rome saw snow for the first time in six years. Yellow and orange alerts were issued nationwide for rain, wind, rough seas, snow and low temperatures that

extended at least until today (Tuesday). By 2.30pm last Tuesday, traffic authorities said that there were 44 roads and mountain passes affected by the snow. Of these, seven were completely closed off to traffic and three require snow chains. In early January, thousands of motorists were stranded for hours on Spanish roads following heavy snowfall. Another storm in early February caused fresh chaos on several motorways.

whom she has two sons, the 41year-old transferred her official residency to the Catalan city in 2015. Until then, it was in the Bahamas. But "that doesn't match reality, with the children in school in Barcelona and her partner here," Company said, adding that prosecutors will decide in June whether to pursue the case. Shakira's representatives, meanwhile, say that until 2014 she earned most of her money in international tours and didn't live more than six months a year in Spain - a prerequisite to be an official tax-paying resident in the country. With her mix of Latin and Arabic rhythms and rock influences, Shakira is one of the biggest acts from Latin America, scoring major global hits with songs such as "Hips Don't Lie" and "Whenever, Wherever." She has sold more than 60 million records.

Speed Limit Signs Some of the most confusing signs for drivers moving to Spain are those related to speed limits. There are some similarities in the UK Highway Code. When we look at road signs we remember some basic principles. Red circles tell us what we must NOT do, blue circles tell us what we MUST do, squares and rectangles offer information, triangles are warnings. There are a couple of others, such as the hexagonal stop sign, but they are the principle points to remember. Red circles DON´T, blue circles DO, squares and rectangles are info, triangles are warnings. The maximum permitted speed on a road is indicated by means of a circular sign with a red border and the numbers in black the centre. This is a mandatory speed limit sign, known as R-301. The UK Highway Code says, "Maximum Speed". There is also a minimum required speed sign, the R-411, which is a blue circle with numbers in white in the centre. A minimum speed is a requirement on a number of roads, and so if your vehicle is incapable of reaching those speeds, you will not be allowed on them. The UK Highway Code says, "Minimum Speed" These signs can also appear in conjunction with other information, such as denoting the minimum or maximum

maximum speed limit sign. It is a blue square with white numbers printed in the centre and denotes the advised maximum speed which your vehicle should travel on through the stretch in question. This sign can also be accompanied by a danger warning and is active for the stretch of road where the danger exists. The S-9 sign denoted a variable recommended maximum speed, with the

advice being to keep the speed between the parameters shown, depending on the weather and environmental conditions of the road and traffic. When placed under a warning sign of a danger, the recommendation refers to the section in which that danger persists. There is one more variation on the speed limit signs that we have to know, that is when they are coloured yellow. The principle of these signs remains the same. The maximum permitted speed sign still

speed in a particular lane, such as the S50. The third signs relating to speed are the S-7 and S-9, which is an advisory has a red border and is therefore treated the same. The only difference is the fact that the body is yellow. Yellow signs are used during temporary operations, such as in road works or when there is a diversion in place for example. The rules still apply whether the sign is yellow or

white, but yellow signs take priority over their original white versions, as the restrictions are in place for a temporary section or time. All roads have a speed limit, even those which don´t display speed limit signs. It is important to know the different characteristics of the roads so as to determine the maximum permitted speed, especially in the event of no signs being displayed. Roads are separated into four main groups. The first group is toll roads and motorways, otherwise known as autopistas and autovias. The second group are conventional roads, which is split again into two subgroups, vías automóviles and carreteras convencionales with a hard shoulder equal to or greater than 1.5 m or more than two lanes for either direction (3 lanes or more in total); and other conventional roads, otras carreteras convencionales. The final group are urban roads, or Vías urbanas, travesías. The table below indicates the maximum permitted speed on the four different types of roads, under optimum conditions. There are other restrictions on certain types of vehicles and activities which must also be taken into consideration.

Identifying an Unmarked Guardia Civil Vehicle

DGT Takes Delivery of Traffic Drones

Depending on the role they need to fulfil, the Guardia Civil traffic department has a range of vehicles at their disposal. Sometimes, it´s necessary for them to use unmarked or camouflaged vehicles in the course of law enforcement. In the case of the vehicle pictured with this article, we are looking at a Toyota which is fitted with radar speed detecting equipment, actually the Multanova 6F, and is mostly used for speed checks on major roads. However, there are also other unmarked vehicles on the roads and we´d like to explain some of the identifying features of these cars, not so you can avoid detection if you are breaking the law, but as there have been a few occasions where criminals have pretended to be the police to stop innocent victims and carry out robberies, we want to make sure you know how to identify a real unmarked traffic car that might be trying to stop you. There is a video which shows all of these points on the website, n332.es. At the front of the vehicle there are blue lights hidden in the grill. These will be illuminated and flash in the event of the vehicle responding to an emergency, or in the event that the officers are trying to stop you. In the front window, on the passenger side, the sun visor has been replaced by an illuminated display. This will display the words “G.Civil”, “Trafico” and “Alto”, or stop, alternating. These words are displayed in reverse, so that they will be visible and easy to read in your rear view

Along with a wide range of new equipment set to be tested on the roads of Spain, the DGT has taken delivery of its first traffic monitoring drones. Already ground-breaking in their method of policing the roads from the air, the DGT contracted a Spanish company to create an “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or “drone” to monitor traffic. With many of their helicopters already fitted with the pinpoint accurate Pegasus radar system, the DGT already use their eyes in the sky for speed detection as well as traffic flow, this latest development could revolutionise the skies once again. The first aircraft are now ready to fly and be tested, equipped with a camera and setting about monitoring the

mirror. You might also spot other equipment in the window, but remember, the vehicle we are looking at here is a radar car and not all unmarked vehicles are fitted with this type of equipment. As we move along this vehicle, we will see that the officer is dressed in a high visibility uniform, as worn only by the traffic officers. When the Guardia Civil traffic officers are patrolling in unmarked cars, they will always, without exception, be wearing a variation of this type of uniform, with high visibility features. It is important to note though that other departments of both the Guardia Civil and police use unmarked cars, such as detectives for example, but those officers will not be wearing this uniform. Another important point is that it is only Guardia Civil traffic officers who are wearing the high visibility uniform who are allowed to take money from you as payment of traffic fines. In the event of an officer from another department coming across an incident on the roads, they will always call for the traffic department to take charge, issue fines and take any money that may be due in fines. Only the officers in the high visibility uniforms bearing Guardia Civil Trafico are allowed to take money, this is important. Looking towards the rear of the vehicle, we can see that the windows are laminated with tinting. This is not an exclusive feature of unmarked or camouflaged cars, but in the back window there is another hidden illuminated display.

This display will once again say the words “G.Civil”, “Trafico” and “Alto”, alternating and accompanied by flashing blue lights on the matrix. The cars also carry a detachable rooftop blue light, but it is unlikely this will be used as part of the procedure to stop you. Always remember the key point of identifying a Guardia Civil Trafico Car. The matrix sign in the front and rear and the officers wearing uniforms. If you are ever in any doubt as to whether you have been stopped by a real Guardia Civil patrol, you can always call 062 and quote the registration number of the vehicle, but these key points, we hope, will also help you stay a little safer on the roads.

conventional road network. The drone is much cheaper to fly that a conventional aircraft and offer a faster response. In addition to monitoring traffic flow, it is hoped that they could be used emergency and incident response, following exceptional loads, fault detection and (eventually) enforcement. Drones are already in use by numerous police forces around the globe, often for monitoring purposes, and in America there was a huge outcry in 2013 when California´s highways suddenly saw warning signs about Law Enforcement by Drones, although on this occasion it was part of an art project and not real.

Ways to lose weight... While you’ve been trying your best to keep up with your New Year resolutions as we enter March, losing weight easily yet effectively might still be just out of your grasp. It’s always advisable to take your weight loss regime slow and easy for long-lasting results. You could consider incorporating small lifestyle changes that could make a huge difference. Still, whether your fitness routine involves following a strict Keto diet or just exercising at home for a few minutes every day, there’s a lot to learn if you really want to know how to lose weight – and keep it off. 1. Start the day off with lean proteins and high-fibre carbohydrates. Leave the high-fat foods for later in the day when your hunger level tends to grow. 2. Meal sizes should go from largest to smallest, starting with a heavy breakfast, followed by a medium-sized lunch and ending with a light dinner. 3. Always leave one-third of your stomach empty after any meal, so that you don’t over-eat. 4. Avoid artificial sweeteners, which will not only make you gain weight but also increase your tendency to eat sweets. Artificial sweeteners such as Agave nectar are typically found in cereals, yogurts and tea, while Neotame is found in dairy products, frozen desserts and fruit juices. 5. If you find yourself feeling hungry towards the end of the day, snack on nuts and dry fruits, and try to tamp down on those junk food cravings. 6. Avoid sauces, or at least consume them in moderation, as they usually contain a large portion of liquid calories. 7. Use smaller plates – it’s a good way to keep a tab on your portions. 8. So that you don’t give in to your sweet tooth cravings (we all have them), set aside one time each week to eat your favourite sweet food. Looking forward to that day will keep you motivated to follow a strict diet the rest of the week. 9. Get rid of all the temptations in your refrigerator. If you don’t have sweets, aerated drinks, packaged juices and canned foods in your house, you’ll find it easier to resist the urge to consume them. 10. Maintain a food journal and jot

down the calories you consume each day. There’s a number of tracking apps out there to help you understand your consumption habits, and change them for the better. 11. Once you have an idea of your food habits, set a daily calorie intake to ensure you’re creating a calorie deficit. Remember, you need to consume fewer calories than you burn to lose weight. 12. Avoid processed foods like cereal, doughnuts, cake and French fries. Replace them with natural whole foods such as apples, lettuce, fish and eggs. 13. A high-protein diet is a sure-shot way to lose weight – it’ll keep you feeling full longer, without providing too many calories. The easiest way to do this is by including lean proteins. 14. Hydrating regularly boosts satiety, especially if you drink water before each meal. You should ideally consume 8-12 glasses per day. 15. Eat your fruits instead of drinking them: Fruit juices are unnatural, since they lack the fibre and bulk that solid fruits can provide. Plus, solid fruits aren’t as high on calories as juices. 16. As the day progresses, include more fats in your meals, to help keep your blood sugar level steady. If done properly, it’ll also reduce over-eating. 17. Don’t peel the skin off your chicken to save a few calories. Instead, cut the amount you plan to eat by one-third. 18. Fish is a good primary source of protein to help you lose weight quickly. 19. Try not to depend only on protein shakes for your source of protein. Also, avoid replacing an entire meal with protein bars. 20. Drink more black coffee instead of your regular coffee with milk or sugar. Even better, drink green tea instead. 21. Get at least 7-9 hours of sleep every night. A good sound sleep will help control hunger and give you more energy to exercise. 22. Prepare your own meals instead of depending on external sources, since you know the exact ingredients, and therefore the number of calories in your food. 23. Avoid wheat products, unless it’s bread made with only water, stone-

ground wheat and yeast. 24. Consume more carbohydrates on the days you work out; on your days off, keep more proteins in your diet. 25. Avoid all soy products – soy contains toxins (pesticides) that encourage your body to hold onto fat. 26. Don’t eat fruit late at night, since that’s when you tend to over-eat. 27. Load up on as many leafy green veggies, which are a great source for essential nutrients, as possible. 28. Incorporate weight training into your exercise routine at least thrice a week, to build muscle and create fat-free body mass. 29. Always opt for natural sources of carbohydrates like roots or rice, instead of pastas. 30. Don’t schedule your cheat days on weekends, when you might go overboard. And always portion your cheat meals in moderation. 31. Remember: The more weight you lose, the hungrier you’ll get. One way to combat this is to eat smaller but more frequent meals rather than larger, fewer meals through the day. 32. While you maintain a food journal, don’t be excessively hard on yourself by counting the calories of every morsel. After all, enjoying your food is also important. 33. Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning to help clear your bowel. 34. Consume more water-based foods like watermelons or tomatoes, which are about 90-95 per cent water. They’ll help you feel full faster. 35. Always buy fresh fruits instead of processed and canned stuff – they contain more fibre and aren’t artificially sweetened. 36. Fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of fibre – essential to losing weight. 37. Keep to a schedule with your meals, even during the day. 38. Eat only when you feel hungry, at your specific meal times. It’s completely normal to get carried away by the mere sight of food (especially if you’re a foodie). Don’t give in to the temptation. 39. Avoid snacking in between meals,

especially on fried foods like French fries or chips. 40. If you do feel those sudden pangs of hunger, munch on carrots – not only will they keep you full, they’re also great for your eyes and teeth. 41. Avoid cream and sugar in your tea and coffee, which automatically make the beverage fattening. 42. If you’ve consumed more calories than you wanted through the week, carve out extra time for exercise. Don’t let it slip, lest it becomes a habit. 43. Do not skip meals – it’s the worst thing you can do for your diet. 44. Consume fresh and raw vegetables instead of cooked or canned vegetables. When you cook your veggies, nearly half the vitamins in them are lost. Also, make sure the veggies you get are pesticidefree. 45. While eggs are an excellent source of protein, stick to just three a week, or, at the most, one per day. 46. You already know chocolate is an absolute no-no while you’re trying to be healthy. That includes bitter chocolates – they may not contain as much sugar, but they do contain cream, which is equally bad for you. 47. Try to incorporate a variety of foods into your daily diet plan, especially from every food group, to avoid deficiency diseases. This way, you won’t get easily bored of your diet. 48. Avoid alcohol – most are fattening, and you tend to eat more while you’re drinking. 49. Have breakfast within the first hour of waking up, don’t wait to feel hungry. Keeping consistent will charge your body with the energy it requires for the rest of the day. 50. Your diet should comprise 50-55 per cent of pure carbohydrates, which are a ready source of energy. 51. Your diet should also comprise 2530 per cent of proteins, to help your body build resistance. 52. Your diet should comprise only 1520 per cent of fats. More importantly, know the difference between fats and healthy fats. Some sources of the good kind are walnuts, olive oil, salmon and

avocado. 53. If you’re a non-vegetarian, opt for white over red meat – so, fish and fowl over beef and pork. 54. If you’re looking for ways to increase the fibre content in your diet, try highfibre multigrain breads, which contain a fair amount of protein. 55. Reduce your pork intake, which includes items like bacon, ham and sausages. 56. Limit your salt intake to half of what it used to be – salt’s one of the main causes of obesity. 57. Switch from regular table butter to a cholesterol-free version. 58. Baking your food requires far less oil and is also a healthier option than frying. 59. Remember: The less oil you add while cooking, the better for your weight loss plan. Using a non-stick frying pan will help with this. 60. Boil your vegetables rather than cook them. Even healthier: Steam them and eat them without adding any toppings. 61. Parsley is a good source of vitamin – you can even munch on it while you’re travelling between meals. Bonus: It’s a natural breath freshener. 62. There are plenty of low-fat as well as no-fat substitutes available in the market. Use those in your daily meals. They’re good for your heart as well. 63. Crash diets are a bad idea. They’ll help you lose weight, no doubt, but the moment you stop, you’ll get it all back in no time. 64. Chew your food properly. Science says that when you chew effectively before swallowing, you produce saliva, which is essential in digesting sugar. 65. If you love wine, opt for dry instead of sweet wines. Both contain a lot of sugar, but all the sugar from the former has already been fermented away, which is less detrimental. 66. Don’t go without eating for more than three hours at a stretch – long spells between meals tend to lower your blood sugar levels and increase your hunger cravings. 67. On days when you feel less active, replace carbs with high-fibre vegetables.

From walking football to walking the Camino Two intrepid members of the Portobello Walking Football Team based in Campoverde are putting their best foot forward to raise money for two local charities. Steve Howarth and Dave Coupe are taking the team’s objective of raising money for its two nominated charities – The AECC and The Amigos De San Jose De Orbrero Orphanage in Orihuela. The team recently handed over 1,000 euros to the charities and this encouraged the duo to go a ‘few steps further’ in their fund raising activities by walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, a 1,000km Pilgrimage from San Juan Pied de Port in France to Muxia

on the Atlantic coast of Spain. The walk will take approximately 35 days and Steve and Dave will cover around 30km per day on average. Their first step on this route will be taken Monday, 9th April 2018 and there will be a daily post on the Portobello Bar Facebook page to keep friends, family and supporters updated on their progress. The pair are now looking to raise as much sponsorship money as possible to benefit the charities. The official fundraising page is: www.givey.com/amigodesanjosedeorbre ro/

On Thursday 5th April from 6pm onwards there will be a ‘Bon Voyage Bash´ held at Portobello's Bar in Campoverde to send Dave and Steve on their way to the Camino de Santiago de Compostela Pilgrimage. The evening will include live music, a sponsored Head Shave, with both Dave and Steve taking part and a prize raffle. There will also be a sealed bid auction for a day out on boat, with Cava, for two persons, and other prizes. The home-coming celebration will be held at the same venue on 31st of May 2018. For further information please contact Steve on 966848882 or via email stevenneilhowarth@hotmail.com

Your Week in Sport ■ CHRIS DARWEN chris@costablancapeople.com

With the Winter Olympics having drawn to an end, there are no Russian doping jokes to be made this week.

Deontay Wilder wants to fight Anthony Joshua, which is only something a very silly or confident man says in public. Wilder was nearly knocked out in the seventh against Luis Ortiz, recovered and won and wants to unify all the belts, finally. Wilder must have something though, he has won 39 of his 40 fights by knockout.

way Usain did? Time will tell.

ABBEY ANGLING

I also have nothing on Roger Federer. I mean, at 48 (it was his birthday last week)* he doesn’t play as many tournaments as he did when he was in his thirties. But, there was some boxing. So at least we have that to talk about. And some athletics, cricket and F1. With that lineup you could start to consider this an actual sports column! Kell Brook is back and he is fighting as a light-middleweight. Brook clearly had double booked himself on comeback night as it was obvious he was in a bit of a hurry, knocking out Belarusian Sergey Rabchenko in the second round. Brook fancies getting Amir Khan in the ring at some point, but in all honesty Amir Khan would be foolish to do that.

In the world of athletics, Katrina Johnson-Thompson finally has a gold medal in a world pentathlon competition. Johnson-Thompson has spent many years in the shadow of Jessica Ennis but her win in the World Indoors suggests she now has the mentality of a winner. Yet, she is British. How strange. Winning and British still don’t sit together that comfortably. The King is dead. Long live the King. But who is the new sprint king since Usain legged it and there still isn’t a drug that can make Justin Gaitlin any younger? Step, or sprint, forward Christian Coleman from Atlanta, Georgia. He already holds the 60m indoor world record and he added the gold medal over the weekend. At 21, can he go on and dominate in the same

Winter Beach activities for all the family From Sunday and until mid-June, the Department of Beaches headed by Councillor Luisa Boné, has launched the "Winter Beach" programme which aims to offer activities for all the family to enjoy. The Winter Beach brings together fitness disciplines such as aerobics, yoga and body balance and water-based activities like paddle boarding, kayaking trips, diving alongside dedicated workshops for the little ones. Councillor Bone said: “Every Sunday from 10am we can get fit by practicing aerobic activities for an hour on the beach. And from the month of April the rest of the programmed activities will be added.” Those interested in the programme can check the Facebook page of the Department of Beaches and information will also be on the website for the City of Orihuela. All activities will take place at La Caleta beach at Cabo Roig, the beach that is accessed on foot by a stone staircase.

The councillor explained that this is the first time a beach activity program “has been launched outside of the summer season and it is hoped that it encourages people to spend Sundays with the family on the beach enjoying the activities for all ages”. If the programme proves popular with local residents, then the department will add more activities and reintroduce the initiative in October. The beach of La Caleta has been chosen as the location as it is the best place to carry out the various activities with a wide, calm bay. This beach is also the one that continues to get the most use in winter by locals and has a beach bar service open all year through. The councillor added that the Winter Beach programme is one that several groups and individuals have requested for a long time and therefore she hopes it will be well used and that the activities provide something for everyone.

England won two ODI internationals against New Zealand in the space of a week. Ben Stokes was the catalyst for the midweek victory, getting 60 odd not out and a couple of wickets before England held their nerve in a tense NZ run chase on Saturday night. At the time of writing there are two to play and England are 2-1 up and the series is actually quite entertaining. Long live ODI cricket I say.

The 9th and penultimate round of the Abbey Angling Cup was fished on the river Segura at Murcia on the 27th February. It was a wet morning and extremely cold, although the water temperature was 10 degrees. The fish were reluctant to feed, with the best weight coming from Bill Reade with 4.600kgs drawn towards the crystal bridge, closely followed in second place was Ian Brown with 4.540kgs and coming in third was Richard Wood with 3.760kgs. Despite the bad weather it was a good turn out 1st Bill Reade with 4.600kgs fishing the pole using bread

RODS & REELS This week’s 8th round of the Winter Championship was also fished at the El Bosquet Complex on the 20th February. It was dejavu for Dave Hutchinson on drawing the same peg three matches running and winning all three. His first place win to-day was with a weight of 10.800kgs, with Dave Hoare in a close second spot with 10.020kgs and coming in third place was Bob Rafferty with 9.100kgs 1st Dave Hutchinson with 10.800kgs fishing the pole using bread 2nd Dave Hoare with 10.020kgs fishing the pole using bread 3rd Bob Rafferty with 9.100kgs fishing the pole using maggot and corn There are still some vacancies at the Club and if anyone is interested in joining please contact Bill Reade on 966790416 966790416

SIZE MATTERS:

F1 has finally noticed that it needs to get down with the kids and stop only appealing to blokes in their 50s. We’ve seen a bit of social media action and now we have the organisation hiring the composer of several Fast and Furious movies to write a new theme tune. Brian Tyler, an Emmy-nominated American has made music for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World as well as the Fast and Furious franchise. Apparently, that makes him quite cool.

The Med Bar Golf Society Forecast for this days outing was not very pleasant but all 20 players turned up at the course on time. Many had second thoughts as most of us met up in El Raso before heading down to El Valle. On the way down on the motorway it started to rain but full of hope we all carried on. On teeing off, the starter stated that at 11.am the rain would come. He was wrong as it started to rain at 11.05, only lightly for a few minutes. By 11.45 it was pouring down but most of us plodded on. It soon eased off and after that we only had intermittent rain but it was getting a bit

chilly. The course was in a lovely condition and was enjoyed by all Results for this outing: Gold division and overall winner was Alan Gifford with 32 points Gold division runner up, Jeff Ellis Silver division winner was Phil Harris with 25 points on count back Silver division runner up, Buck Taylor Nearest the pins on par 3 Martin Morgan, Andy Trefry, Jeff Ellis & Phil Harris Nearest the pin in 2 on par 4 was Jeff Ellis Nearest the pin in 3 on par 5 was ray

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

Who remembers when Petr Cech was a world-class goalkeeper? When Arsene Wenger was a football revolutionary? When Jack Wilshere was the future of English football? When Arsenal were known for having the tightest, meanest most boring defence in the league? Yeah, me too. Life moves on, and life for Arsenal right now is finding themselves 2-0 down at Brighton trying to conjure up the character needed for a comeback. And, in true Arsenal style, it ended up being a job half done. They got it back to 2-1, meaning there was hope and that is the thing with the modern Arsenal. There is always a small element of hope. The lights still flicker from time to time. Apparently the players met last week to discuss why they were doing so badly. I think it’s fair to say that they didn’t come up with any quick fixes - even if one of the things they claimed they needed was “more support from the coaches”. I’ve been saying for a while, get Jens back in goal and Bouldy at centre back. It can’t get any worse. Arsene fully intends to honour his contract, reminding everyone before the game that he has “turned down the world” to be loyal to Arsenal. Sadly Arsene, I don’t think they can afford to

be loyal to you any longer. A change now might, and only might, reignite things enough to put up a decent fight for the Europa League and there cannot be a manager or coach on the planet capable of getting Arsenal into the top four this season. They have lost more games than Burnley. They have lost the same amount of games as Leicester City. They have only lost one fewer than Brighton and Southampton and Southampton are, at the time of writing, a point outside of the relegation zone. Antonio Conte is very much another manager looking for his board to publically back him. The Chelsea manager talked about the need for funds to make the squad stronger which loosely translated means “if you don’t give me a large transfer kitty in the summer Roman, I’ll be off to Italy thank you very much”. Conte is very much laying the track for it not being his fault when Abramovich decides to sack him over the summer. Of course, the other way to lay the track is to send out a team without a recognised target man and then send a stream of high balls into the space only half occupied by Eden Hazard. Chelsea rarely threatened Manchester City at the Etihad and when David found his brother Bernard at the far post it was the goal City needed to score. They knew they didn’t need more than one, Chelsea weren’t that fussed at all. Jamie

Redknapp called it “a crime against football” which was a little rich coming from a man wearing a blue velvet suit “analysing” a game of football. With Manchester United playing on Monday night, Liverpool sprinted into second place. There was no fog on the Tyne, mainly because the game was being played at Anfield, but Liverpool cut through it like a knife through hot butter with Mo Salah (obviously) and Sadio Mane scoring the goals that saw off Newcastle United 2-0. Tottenham Hotspur “can win the Champions League” according to some pundits who probably had a few too many over Sunday breakfast. More likely for Tottenham is that they will finish top four as Heung-Min Son borrowed Harry Kane’s spotlight briefly in their 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town. They say it is not over until the fat lady sings, but her slightly rotund brother is currently on stage warming up proceedings for Alan Pardew. Troy Deeney, who once body-doubled for Pavarotti, scored a late goal to claim all three points for Watford and leave Pards with absolutely nowhere to turn, unless he is man enough to turn to the door marked “exit”. Mind you, as he knows it will probably be his last ever Premier League job he would be wise to leave kicking and screaming.

There is nothing quite like selling a good player to a relegation rival in the January transfer window and then watch him lead his new side to victory over you weeks later. David Moyes called it “the worst performance since I have been here” and he knows a thing or two about terrible performances. Andre Ayew showed West Ham United what they could have had if they’d managed to get that kind of talent pointing in the right direction, leading Carlos Carvalhal to win “quote of the weekend” once again by proclaiming, “we played like 11 brothers instead of 2 today”. Please stay up Swansea City, just so we can have more of that next season. David Sullivan was allegedly attacked by a West Ham fan after game, which was the most threatening anything in a West Ham shirt had looked all afternoon. Try telling me Riyad Mahrez doesn’t love playing football. Sure, he’d rather be doing it in a slightly lighter shade of blue but it is clear the guy just loves it. And, when he is up for it, he is rather good too. Mahrez netted a late, late long-distance free-kick of Leicester City against Bournemouth taking full advantage of the fact that “it’s a bit wet today lads, so test the keeper from distance”. I have a question for Southampton fans. Would you be getting relegated with Claude Puel in charge? Be honest

now, even the most stupid of you know the real answer. Yes, Southampton forced Jack Butland into a couple of good saves but Stoke City have the worst defensive record in the league. You have to score in these ones. A 0-0 didn’t really serve either side particularly well, let alone the fans that made the journey. Everton fans will no doubt feel a whole load better after Sham Allarfarce said that he “feels worse than they do”. Really, Sam? You think? You get paid to watch that rubbish you serve up, they pay to be there. Burnley had not won a single game of football since hitting the heady heights of 4th place in mid-December but then, they had not played an Everton team so battered by their manager constantly telling the world they are rubbish. Ashley Williams was always going to do well to be worse than last week, but he managed it by getting a straight red card. Theo Walcott showed he was money very well spent by doing what Theo Walcott has done all his career missing very good chances. Plus, has anyone else noticed that with every passing week it looks like the best bit of business Burnley did last summer was getting £25m+ for Michael Keane? I don’t suppose Ray Wilkins is still spouting on about how he is better than that foreign lad United bought.

San Miguel Golf Society ALFIE’S GOLF SOCIETY Poldark-like, overcast conditions greeted the thirty nine members and three guests at Vistabella. In terms of playing the newly-added 7 holes, most were Vistabella virgins. Most of the participants were impressed by the lay-out. However, the rock-hard fairways meant even duffed shots ran like balls on buggy paths. As always at this course, the undulating greens sorted out men from the boys. Sadly, again, slow play was an issue with some groups taking more than 5 hours to complete the round. The knock-on effect led to early flights waiting in the clubhouse for more than 2 hours for the presentation. Ready golf, gents! Surprisingly, given the new holes and tricky greens, the scoring in all categories was worthy of praise. Top score of the

day belonged to Brian Butler (winning on countback from Mike Inns) with a magnificent 39 points. This week’s Abacus prize was sponsored by Adrian Rudge, golf professional at Vistabella. Instead of the usual bottle of red wine, the bottom scorer – John Osborne received a voucher for an obviously much-needed golf lesson from Adrian. The day’s results, by category and in reverse order, were the following: Bronze Category: 4th Norman Padmore (35), 3rd Norman McBride (38), 2nd Mike Inns (39) and 1st Brian Butler (39 points on CB) Silver Category: 4th Theo Boelhower (32 on CB), 3rd Brian Mulligan (33), 2nd Roger Webb (34), and 1st Phil De Lacy (36 points)

Gold Category: 4th Bjorn Petterson (34), 3rd Tony Smale (35), 2nd Robin Eastman (37), and 1st Mike Greaterox (37 points on CB) Nearest the pins on the par 3’s (G, S,B & open to all) went to Kyree Skarsmoen, Roger Webb, John Osborne and Joan Balkwill. Best guest was Roy Foster with 36 points, with Joan Balkwill in runner-up position. Our thanks to the staff at Vistabella for their contribution to the day. Keep up to date with all SMGS matters by logging on to our website www.smgs.org or simply give Tony Smale a call on 628227687 to find out more about the society and its weekly golf get-togethers. Next week we will be at Hacienda Del Alamo.

29 members and guests from Alfie's GS travelled to Vistabella GC for the second meeting of the year. It was the first round of the Eclectic Cup and the golfers played for The Keys Bar Trophy St. Andrews which was the first time this cup was played for.We had a later than normal start time at 12:20 but despite the delays all members of the society managed to make it back to the bar before it got dark.The course was ok but the fairways could do with some water but the new 7 holes make the course a full 18 hole golf course.The presentation was held back at Alfies’s bar where a buffet was enjoyed by all the players, kindly donated by Alfie’s bar.We continued with the 2 categories “GOLD” & “SILVER” but the performance of the day was made by Gulli Kristjansson who played off a handicap of 5. Our winner of the day in the silver division was Rita Potterswith 37 stableford points alas Rita had to leave before the presentations were made. Second went to Luke Branch with 36 stableford another solid performance from Luke to compliment his last performance at Villamartin. The Winner of the gold division was Gulli Kristjansson who had a magnificent score of 40 points playing off a handicap of 5. Second place went to Ove Collin who also had 40 points playing off 19 but was pipped by Gulli on countback.

Best Guest went to Mac McClean with 32 stableford points. Nearest the pin in the 2nd – Sponsored by ‘The Street Restaurant’ went to match secretary Joe Murphy Nearest the pin on the11th– sponsored by ‘The Auld Dubliner‘ went to Gulli Kristjansson Nearest the Pin in 2 shots on the 17th - sponsored by ’The Celtic Drop’ went to Ove Collin Longest Drive on 14th was won by Gulli Kristjansson The Blind pairs was won by our Captain Ian Ingledew and Harry Conrad

Many thanks to our sponsors, our committee for their hard work in the background, and to Mike Probert from Costa Blanca Green Fee Services for arranging our day. To Rose and Jim and staff at Alfie’s Bar for their support throughout the year. Big Thank you to Dana Connell for organising the charity raffle and prizes. And finally thanks to all the members for supporting Alfies Golf Society. The next venue will be held at Las Ramblas on March 29th 2018 where we will be playing for the Terry Owen memorial Trophy

Spanish police shut down illegal download sites Guardia Civil officers in Spain have waged war on pirate download sites and have so far blocked 23 of them, with more likely to follow in the next few weeks or months as new domain names continue to be created. Operation Cascada ('Waterfall') has targeted sites where music, films, serials and video games are distributed via peer-to-peer (P2P)

society's hang-ups and plumbing psychological depths – said over a year ago that she did not plan to write any more books as she was earning nothing from them thanks to illegal downloads. And until they become world-famous, authors and artists in general make very little money from their work. According to the Guardia Civil,

sharing networks from computers without fixed servers or IP addresses. These unauthorised free downloads are a breach of copyright and cause financial loss to writers, musicians, directors, actors and other persons involved who would normally be paid royalties. In fact, prolific Spanish novelist Lucía Etxebarría – author of a long string of profound 'chick-lit' works well-known for their mixture of stream-of-consciousness and gritty realism through observing

the domain names blocked so far – some very recently created and a few not even launched in Spain yet – had very high traffic with hundreds or thousands of daily hits. Three of them – Divxtotal.com, Estrenosdtl.com and Gamestorrents.com – were set up by an undisclosed Spaniard who sold them to a firm based in Argentina. Hiding server locations to prevent their sites being shut down is one of the most common tactics used by those setting up

pirate download pages, say police – software exists which 'shields' IP addresses and changes them constantly so they come up in different countries worldwide. This means some sites blocked go live again within a matter of hours with near-identical names. Others were set up to allow them to bypass closure by outside sources time and time again, meaning cyberexperts within the police force specialising in online crimes had to find ways of blocking them for good. Many pirate sites are set up using the 'deep web' – one of the most popular being The Onion Route or TOR. Whilst the 'deep web' is sometimes used for harmless ends such as expats' hiding the country their IP address is based in to be able to access TV catch-up services from their home nation, it is also popular with terrorists, organised criminal gangs and child porn networks as they are extremely difficult to trace, even by experts in internet crime. Those who set up illegal download sites do not charge for the downloads themselves, but earn their money through advertising on their pages.

Cinderella comes to Hondón de los Frailes The Frailes Players’ big night arrived recently as Cinderella came to the stage (Oh no she didn’t. Oh yes she did!) and the spotlight shone on this first endeavour by a group of people showcasing their talent in the best traditions of a pantomime. Playing to a sell-out audience over two nights, the theatre in Hondón de los Frailes rang with the traditional cheers for the goodies, boos for the baddies and the ever popular phrases ‘He’s behind you’ and Oh no I didn’t’, ‘Oh yes you did’ in a show full of audience participation. Who knew that so much hidden talent was to be found, the scenery, costumes, make-up, sound, lighting plus importantly, the music, were of a very high standard and it was apparent that everyone involved was thoroughly enjoying themselves. The audience laughed at the ‘Shifty Scene Shifters’ who broke the mould by sometimes working their magic in full view of the audience. Buttons, played by Janni Menday, had a wonderful young sidekick, Bows played by Scottie, a young lad who has a great future in acting. Young children from the local school were the stars of the night as they became a wonderful cast of Fairies, Woodland Creatures and Stars. Denise Watson as

Cinderella charmed her audience as well as her Prince Charming played by Kim Vance. The Prince was ably assisted by his valet, Dandini, played by Barbara Colclough and to round up the Palace crew was the Herald played by George Rushton. Now for the baddies, one had to feel sorry for Baron Hardup (Paul Menday), his was a tough row to hoe, short of cash and with a terrible taste in women, he married the proverbial Stepmother, (Tim Kay) who decided that her Really Ugly Daughters, Benidormia (Jim Gallamore and Magaloofia (Len Simm) were going to rule the roost in future and the only place for poor Cinderella was as a down-trodden slavey. True to the best Panto tradition, in steps the Fairy Godmother,

(Carol Rowland) to save the day and with the help of her Fairies, gets Cinders to the ball after a miraculous change of dress and the transformation of a giant pumpkin and mice into a coach and horses. The story then followed through, the slipper was lost, found, tried on the Ugly Sisters (and boy were they ugly!) and at last, Cinderella emerges triumphant to marry her Prince. A wonderful evening all round with grateful thanks to the Director, Martyn Rissen, the Producer, Carol Rowland and all the wonderful cast, both front of stage and those behind the scenes. But of course none of this would have been possible without the wonderful cooperation of the Hondon de los Frailes Ayuntamiento and especially Victor.

Dementia campaign Ex-players are tackling dementia in football-mad Spain. Eight senior citizens huddled around a table stare at a photo of a young Diego Maradona in a red and blue FC Barcelona jersey projected onto a screen at a Madrid retirement home. Former Atletico Madrid defender Roberto Solozabal, a member of Spain's gold medal football squad at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, and ex-Valladolid right back Javier Torres pace the room as

they gently coax the group to identify the Argentine football legend. "Great," says Torres, the sleeves of his grey sweater rolled up to his elbows, after one of the senior citizens correctly identifies Maradona, who played for the Barcelona side in the early 1980s. Next he asks the group of five women and three men if they recall which foot the player used. Prodding their memories like this is the aim of

workshops held for residents suffering from, or at risk of developing Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, at the private Ballesol Olavide retirement home. Staff say the activity keeps their minds engaged. Over the course of 12 weekly, twohour sessions, ex-players use football photos, programmes and memorabilia from days gone by to stimulate the residents' memories and help them to recall episodes from their lives. While the focus on football is novel, the approach it reflects - known as reminiscence therapy - is common in clinical practice for dementia. Studies have found the therapy improves both cognitive function and quality of life by boosting self-esteem and fighting loneliness, which is common in care homes. The Spanish Federation of Associations of Former Football Players (FEAFV) launched the programme in 2016 after hearing about a similar initiative in Scotland. It believed the method could be well-suited to footballmad Spain, which has four daily newspapers dedicated to the sport. "Football stirs extremely strong emotions, it is something a person remembers," says federation president, 77-year-old former Athletic Club defender Juan Maria Zorriqueta. As dementia progresses, memories of childhood and early adulthood tend to endure the longest. Stirring up memories of players and matches from decades ago also helps bring back recollections from other aspects of people's lives at that time. Talking about the 1982 World Cup final between Italy and West Germany at

Real Madrid's iconic Santiago Bernabeu Stadium for instance prompted the Ballesol Olavide residents to remember and discuss where they were working at the time of the match. "Football is a tool to wake up memories. What things link you to your childhood, mark you? "In Spain, or any European country, one of them is football," says Solozabal, 48, sitting in the conference room decorated with a giant photograph of a waterfall where he runs the workshop. "It touches everyone, even if it is indirectly. You may not like football, but your partner and your children do," says the former player, who takes part on a voluntary basis like the vast majority of the other ex-footballers. Workshop participants are encouraged to compile a scrapbook of the memories that they can recall. "It helps me to not lose my mind. There are many people, who don't know where they are and I feel sorry for those people," says Ricardo Marina Liceras, 87, a former truck driver, who has lived at the Ballesol Olavide retirement home for

less than a year. The football therapy has also helped bring him closer to other residents, he said. Another resident was prompted to talk at length about having played football as a child. - 'Eager to remember' Staff and family members report an improvement in the mood of the participants. The retirement home's psychologist, Beatriz Gema Rodriguez Blazquez, says "it helps" that football is a topic "that they like and are passionate about". "I see them much more motivated and really eager to work and remember," she says. The FEAFV federation organised 22 "reminiscence" workshops in 10 different cities across Spain in 2016 and 2017, all of them involving retired professional footballers. And this year it plans to hold another 20 workshops, which are funded by both the FEAFV and the Spanish football players' union, AFE.

Discount for sterilising cats in Pilar A new campaign to sterilise cats is being subsidised by Pilar de la Horadada Town Hall. The scheme is available to residents from 15th March to 15th May at several veterinary clinics in the town, including: Pelo, Pico y Pata, Veterinaria del Sureste, Moby Dick and Clínica Veterinaria El Pilar. Councillor José Francisco Albaladejo said that in 2017 around 20 female cats and 12 male cats were sterilised in the town, which helps to control colonies of stray

and wild cats and also helps to avoid people abandoning their pet cat when they realise that it is about to have a litter of kittens. As part of the initiative the Town Hall will pay a third of the price, meaning it will cost each resident just €40 to sterilise a female cat and €20 for a male. To receive the subsidy it is necessary to show that you are registered on the padron for Pilar.

Maggie via email asks: Hello Aunty, I hope you can help me. I recently did an update on my Acer aspire and my cursor has disappeared completely! I have tried taking the battery out then restarting. I have pressed the fn key and F7 but all to no avail. Thanks in anticipation. Aunty Says: Hello Maggie. This sounds like a typical software/driver problem so you may need to go to the support page on the Acer website and download the latest drivers. It’s not that difficult and if there is more than one make/model of touchpad listed for your laptop then simply try each one. John from Los Balcones asks: Hi aunty love your page in the Costa Blanca People and I have found it very helpful, especially for Virus Protection. I have 2 problems that I hope you can help with. I have just got the new windows 10 updates no problem, but when I try to access some files I keep getting a message “UNAUTHORISED CHANGES BLOCKED” and it says “Controlled Folder Access Blocked C:\program file. I have to cancel this message before I can carry on which is a bind. The other problem is on my phone. I have downloaded Google Chrome as my browser but since then I have this app called CHROMES which seems to mess up my phone and makes it slow etc.

What is Chromes and how do I get rid of it? Many thanks and keep up the good work. Aunty Says: Hi John. This could be Windows Defender getting a bit confused and over protective. Go to “Settings” “Update & Security” “Widows Defender” and open “Windows Defender Security Center”. Click on the “Virus Protection & Threat Settings” and scroll down to the bottom and switch off “Controlled folder access” I’m not 100% sure what Chromes is but I remember one of the cheaper phone manufacturers bundled an app called Chromes that caused all kinds of problems and was a bugger to get rid of. Is it a Doogee brand phone John? Ray via email asks: Hi Aunty. I read your comments about uninstalling anything to do

with Advance System Care & IObit apps. I use them all the time but now you have spooked me! I also use AVG antivirus, what do you recommend? many thanks for your time and information. Aunty Says: Hello Ray. I would definitely recommend uninstalling anything to do with IObit od Advanced System Care as I have seen numerous problems caused by these apps, including downloading and installing spyware onto your computer. AVG has gotten a little bit bloated and slow lately so I still champion the Microsoft Windows Defender that come bundled with Windows 10. Well that’s all for this week, email me your problems to auntyvirus@costablancapeople.com and I will see what I can do.
