Yes, at least 99.5% of all public tap water in Spain is safe to drink and complies with international water quality standards. But there are issues such as taste, chlorine by-products, microplastics and local pipe contaminants. Therefore it can be a good idea to use a portable and easy to install water filter such as TAPP which also has the bonus of saving money and reducing plastic waste. There is no evidence that bottled water is safer or healthier so whether you live or visit Spain avoid it if you can. Before Spain joined the EU in 1986, the country was torn by the after effects of the civil war, dictatorship and subsequent lack of investments in infrastructure including tap water. Some cities like Madrid had excellent tap water but others had limited regulation and sub standard filtration and quality testing. In the coastal areas such as Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante, Malaga and Cadiz you will therefore hear a lot of people tell you that they don’t recommend drinking the tap water. One of the reasons is that tourists in the 60s to 80s did not drink the tap water and as Spaniards got wealthier they also switched to bottled water. Between 1986 and 2008 Spain received 21 billion euro in EU funding for water infrastructure. Today they have some of the most advanced public water filtration and waste water management solutions in the world. So can I drink the tap water in Spain? The water companies are obliged to pro-

Centro Comercial de Carabassi, Avenida de Noruega, 214, Local Nº7, 03130 Santa Pola, www.granalacantproperties.com

vide frequent water quality reports and alert customers if there is any non-compliance. Therefore there is minimal risk of getting sick from bacteria in water from the tap, public drinking fountains, at restaurants, etc. However, it can happen for people with very sensitive stomachs. Another challenge is that Spanish water providers (just like most other countries in the world) use chlorine to sterilize tap water. For this reason, there can be a certain chemical taste to the water. It is not dangerous, and you usually get used to it after a while. If you live near the coast, you may have higher levels of sediment like fine sand as well as more minerals in your tap water. Again, this is not dangerous, but the water may not taste as good. A more recent problems is microplastics found in more than 80% of all tap water in Europe. The microplastics come from plastics and plastic fibers that break down and leech into the water sources. We don’t know the long term health implications of this but it’s probably not good. Because of these issues it can be a good idea to get a quality water filter to improve taste and protect from common contaminants. Bottled water in Spain Bottled water consumption in Spain grew from 74m litres in 1965 to over 5,000m in 2016. That’s from about 74m glass bottles to around 6-8 billion plastic bottles in 2017. This has caused big issues in terms of plas-

+34 966 699 441 tic pollution as only about 20% gets recycled and the rest ends up on landfills and incineration plants. The average Spanish household that buys bottled water spends about €320 per year. With a water filter like TAPP you can save €260. To date there is no scientific evidence that bottled water is healthier or safer to drink than tap water. Therefore the main reason to drink bottled water is taste preference.

Tap water in Spain: Conclusion You can safely drink the tap water in Spain unless the local water company states otherwise. If you don’t like the taste of the water or you’re worried about contamination from the pipes then get a water filter. Avoid plastic bottled water if you can, as it’s bad for the planet and generally a waste of money.

An outstanding bill of 30,000 Euros means the heating has been off for three months

The Vicenta Ruso school in Gran Alacant has started the cold season without heating. The gas supplier, Naturgy (formerly known as Gas Natural), cut off the school’s supply in August, taking advantage of the fact that it was closed and, after returning from holiday, it has still not been reconnected due to an eight-year unpaid bill dueto the company, which dates back to the opening of the public school. The legal services of the Consistory and the Territorial Direction of Education have stated that the service must return. In addition, the Council in Santa Pola has filed a contentious administrative appeal in the Court of Instruction of Elche to denounce that the supplier company can not violate the minimum conditions for children now that temperatures are falling. On the other hand, the Consistory reflects in the

mayor and councillor for sports investigated for Half Marathon

complaint that it is opposed to paying a debt that risen to about 30,000 euros since 2012 as claimed by the supplier, according to the mayor, Yolanda Seva, because although the municipalities have to deal with the maintenance of the centres, the local administration cannot pay that debt because the owner of the supply is still Ciegsa, the construction company of educational centres. There is a suspension of payments and the Generalitat Valenciana would have to absorb the outstanding debts of the suplier. According to the local government, Ciegsa has not paid the supply quotas from the beginning because they have decided that the Town Council is responsible for this expense, but when the certification of the school was made, the name of the accountants did not change. That is the situation they are trying to reverse, says the quadripartite, since they have submitted innumerable writings to Naturgy but the change has not yet been processed, so the debt continues to grow.

On November 27th, the mayor of Santa Pola, Yolanda Seva, and her party colleague María Dolores Tomás, councillor for sports, will be investigated as part of the investigation in court number 5 of Elche, where they face charges of administrative prevarication, bribery , fraud and embezzlement of public funds. The Popular Party detected clear indications of irregularities in the adjudication of the Half Marathon, which could be the same as a crime, so they proceeded to denounce them. The mayor, by coup of the mayor’s decree and without any competitors being proposed, awarded the event to a private company without it paying anything to the town, the collection of participants’ registration, about 150,000 euros (according to the complaint) went entirely to the contractor. The company itself, at the request of the Town Council, presented the technical report necessary for the authorisation of all activities related to the sporting event. From it you can see the enormous size of resources and the scale required for the event, and that the costs to be met by the participants were set by the company itself in three sections that ran from 18 to 25 euros, in consideration of the registration date. According to all the data that will be contributed by this part, the expenses of putting on the event surpass the 100,000 euros, the income derived from the costs to the runners of about 150,000 euros. Remember, for example, that the Santa Pola Athletics Club, which is non-profit, was charged almost 6,000 euros in local police expenses by the Town Council. To be able to skip the report of the Bureau of Intervention, they excused themselves in that they did not commit any expense to the town, forgetting to communicate the important amount of elements and resources that are necessary for the realisation of the sports event, as stated in the complaint.

Jungle Drums HOROSCOPES Aries March 21-April 20 Many of your hang-ups would disappear if you started wearing clothes that more suited you. You can test yourself today by attempting to abstain from gratuitous sex or violence. Taurus April 21-May 20 The randomness of the universe may affect you today as you search for meaning in a cornflake that looks like your nose. Half of what you think you’re good at is actually a complete fluke. Gemini May 21-June 21 Having a box of tissues close to hand might become important over the coming minutes. Screaming loudly only serves to wake the neighbours. They’ll only investigate once they’re sure you’re dead and the murderer has left the crime scene. Cancer June 22-July 22 The newspaper will become a source of great amusement this week as an article tickles your fancy in almost every way. You may find solace in someone’s choice of underwear today. Leo July 22-August 22 Exercise may seem like a dirty word, but until you lose some weight fatty, it’s the dirtiest word you’re going to hear for a long time. Cartoon fun can be yours if you pick up the right set of pencils and think really hard about drawing. Virgo August 23-September 22 Hilarity may ensue this week if you decide to hire a clown on Thursday night. Don’t be in the market for any of what anyone is selling. Hopefully the pains you’re currently experiencing will disappear over the coming hours.

Libra September 23-October 23 Laughter will help you today, especially if you want to avoid crying. Although, you must really make an effort today to let people truly understand the depth of your problems Scorpio October 24-November 22 Tight-rope walking is an excellent way to lose a few pounds...from your intestine. Life throws us all crazy things now and then. Like swords made of ham. And dogs on skateboards. Sagittarius Nov 23-December 21 Screaming “Death to the Infidel!” as you’re walking through busy airports or shopping centres, will leave you with bruises in special places. Although you may wish to avoid using the name “Long Dong Silver”. Capricorn December 22-January 20 As accurate as the weather report might be, you must be careful to avoid the 3011 bus. Tantric is not a cussword you want to use around the office. It’s not even a cuss-word. Aquarius January 21-February 19 Everything you think about yourself will not be called into question this week. Be cuddly today and possibly as fluffy as possible. Your aim to drink 10-15 litres of water may come crashing down when you’re stuck in traffic later this week. Pisces February 20-March 20 The food of love is music, only if it’s Phil Collins and he’s feeding you some kind of grapes whilst offering many of his nieces to you.

Gran Alacant "Our home"

I would like to start this series of articles by saying that Gran Alacant is formed as you know by a few communities, and it is OUR HOME, for all of us who have chosen this place to live; in a beautiful environment and for those who accompany us during the summers. Those who live continuously and those who do so sporadically is what unites us, regardless of our origin, values ​​ and similar customs and also a desire that our chosen place to live, offers us conditions as comfortable as possible. So we share common objectives that are: 1-improve-if possible day by day-the

place where we live giving it more infrastructure, to improve what it has, 2-strive to get more services for all: young, medium and older and 3 -Finally all of this with the greatest respect for the environment that surrounds us and that in part because of it, we are here That is why I want these articles to be based on three themes: Reporting all that which we consider to be wrong, and which can be improved by providing solutions for it from the point of view of infrastructures and services. In addition to proposing solutions or new services that may be needed in the future.

This section pursues the objective that it is the town of Santa Pola that once identified the problems, order their correction or investment as soon as possible. It is about putting preferences to the solution of the problems detected. This section we could call IMPROVEMENTS Establish or propose measures or solutions that promote respect for the environment. Within this section and as a personal contribution, how to achieve greater efficiency in our life from the energy point of view, recommending current technical solutions to apply them in our environment and lives. We could call this section ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT Finally summarise the relevant news that you have with regards to our environment, such as news derived from the town of Santa Pola, evolution of energy and its trends, relevant news of the environment, and in general those news that favour the environment and understand its importance and dissemination to the community. And to this section RELEVANT NEWS

So in the section RELEVANT NEWS to start this article we will highlight the most important news from the point of view of our community and its relationship with the town of Santa Pola: The budgets of the town have been approved and we have the following investments: In the section on IMPROVEMENTS, we will start the section with a problem that is very easy to correct, such as putting the indications of the streets on the crossings correctly, there are very few that indicate the address well. This small maintenance job can solve many problems for people who visit us in the summer. There are many examples of them throughout the community. In the section ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT, we can talk about the approval of the “zero balance” of Energy. Last week an important step was taken for its regulation. It is not possible for a country like Spain with one of the highest levels of sunshine in Europe not to have a system that generalizes clean energy productions.

There’s no doubt that people can be weird, and over the years, we’ve needed to create laws to protect us from ourselves and some of our strangest impulses. But there are laws, especially ones that apply to our pets, that seek to prevent some particularly unrealistic scenarios. Some of these outlandish ordinances have been rooted out, while others remain on the books in their respective states and cities today. All are among the wildest and weirdest things we’ve seen. These are the most unusual animal laws in America: Law: It is illegal for your dog to bark for more than ten minutes. State: Oregon

State: Delaware Groomers in the First State better throw excess hair and fur away. If they try something funny with it, they may be in violation of the state’s criminal code: Law: Goldfish may not be given away to entice someone to enter a game of bingo. State: Georgia

Pets in Spain

Rosie is around 1 year old and was living on the streets in Granada before coming to us. She is a sterilised, weighs around 6 kilos and is good with other dogs. Call: 645 469 253. www.petsinspain.com

Law: Dogs may not molest cars. State: Kentucky Law: Cats are not allowed in public cemeteries. State: Wisconsin Law: It is illegal to keep a smelly dog. State: Illinois Law: It is illegal to photograph rabbits between the months of January and April. State: Wyoming

Geo is a small 8 month old Chihuahua x Chinese crested. He weighs approx 5 kilos and is a happy little pup who is good with other dogs. Geo is chipped, vaccinated and has his pet passport. Call: 645 469 253. www.petsinspain.com

Law: Animals cannot enter beauty salons for the purpose of hairdressing. State: Alaska Law: Black cats must wear bells on Friday the 13th. State: Indiana Law: It is illegal to sell a dog’s or cat’s excess hair.

La Marina Hackers Golf Society.

A little bit about us: ​WELCOME TO LA MARINA HACKERS GOLF SOCIETY ​ friendly society where the emphasis is on having fun in a relaxed atmosphere. A We are a small, but perfectly formed, golf society based on the Costa Blanca, Spain, on the La Marina Urbanisation, San Fulgencio, Alicante. We meet once a month, normally on the first Wednesday of the month. We regularly play the local courses of El Plantio, Alicante Golf, Las Colinas and Bon Alba, but also visit other courses on a less regular basis. Our home “base” is The Woodstock bar in the “Grey Area” on the urb. The cost of membership (2018) is a measly €20 per year and as a new member you will receive a snazzy Society T-shirt which you are expected to wear on society golf days! The cost of an 18-hole round is normally €55 which includes the golf, a buggy and some well-earned food back at the Woodstock after the game. Part of the €55 will be allocated toward the annual Christmas Dinner (Not to be missed!) which is then free for members and 1 partner (provided minimum 6 games played over the year - if less than 6 games played, the member get the free Christmas Dinner but his/her partner will have to pay). www: http://lamarinahackers.wixsite.com/home Contact them at: lamarinahackers@yahoo.com

The Hackers at Alicante Golf 03/10/2018 On 3rd of October 2018 we set out for the fair city of Alicante. We once again had a large group, 17 members and 3 guests but in spite of some heavy morning rush-hour traffic, everyone made it to the course with enough time to spare to enjoy the complimentary coffee. Having played the course the previous Wednesday, I was relieved to see that the greens had been restored to the condition we have grown accustomed to here. Also, there was no evidence of permanent damage to any of the houses we had hit the previous week. Needless to say, we made a pretty good attempt of rectifying this situation but they built these houses good and strong! The semi-roughs were sticky and made for some superb comedy golf, especially from yours truly.. On the 14th hole, after a reasonably accurate tee-shot, I managed to find the semi-rough on the left hand side with my 2nd shot. No problem I thought, I’ll hit a nice soft 9 iron just short of the ruins and capitalize on having two shots on the hole. Epic FAIL.... I skanked the 9 iron30 yards across the fairway at a 90 degree angle. Ah well, all is not not lost. I’ll try again.... Same result except this time there was a bunker at the 90 degree angle. Attempting to clear the ruins from the bunker was clearly not a good idea but I tried anyway and the ball, predictically, went straight into the ruins never to be seen again. But at least there was one positive outcome to all this hilarity: Corky learned a new swear word which he used for the next 4 holes with great enthusiasm....! The rest of the course was played in a similar manner and I lost 5 balls on the the last 2 holes but at least I kept the rest of the 4 ball entertained. Then it was back to the Woodstock for some much needed liquid refreshment and some very delicious home made quiches, sandwhiches, pizza slices and other very nice food. The prizes were presented and the winners of the days games were: Overall winner: Richie with 33 points, runners-up Simon and John T with 31 points each. Nearest to pins were won by Steven G on hole number 3 and John M on hole number 12. Corky made the longest drive on hole number 9 and the Jackpot was won by Brian with a very respectable 15 points! The Dominoes was won by Kevin and the Mulligans raised a further €15 for the Strength for Nigel campaign.

My utility bills are also far lower than they were for the same period last year living on the Costa Blanca, with electricity costs alone being two thirds of what they were. There are pros and cons living in both Britain and Spain and I am mindful that not everything revolves around money. A general sense of wellbeing, healthy living and a positive outlook depends on a number of different factors. For me being back home is about family, friends and reconnecting with the past. In time I may decide to return to my little place in the sun, but until then, it’s time to knuckle down, buckle up and enjoy the ride!

It’s Almost Pantomime Season. Oh yes it is! Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to the panto...but how did this marvellously eccentric British genre of theatre come about? Pantomine means





mime’ and it’s generally accepted it was modelled on the early Masques of the Elizabethan



days. The role reversal of the Dame being played by a man and Principal Boy played by




evolved from the Tudor ‘Feast of Fools’ presided over by the Lord of Misrule. So it goes back a long way. Well, the Stagestruck version of Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood has no Lord of Misrule, but the dastardly Sherriff Chump of Nottingham, and Merkela, the wicked witch, are the bad guys, and Robin Hood with the beautiful Maid Marion on the side of the angels. Add Nursey as the Dame, and Boris and Theresa as the Babes, and you have a hilarious mix of traditional with a few modern references, in a show for all the family. Tickets are 8 euros and available to buy at: The Card Place, Benimar, The Post Box Dona Pepa (Quesada), Leaf’s (opposite the Budapest Restaurant) and Cards and More at La Marina. You can also reserve on line via stagestruck.show@gmail.com or call 625 883 387, the ticket hotline.

KEEPING OUT THE IMMIGRANTS – by an Immigrant! The world is an overcrowded place, and getting worse by the day. False religious beliefs don’t help, and rich nations do little to assist the poor ones in limiting their populations, nor to feed the people they have. Hence the desire of multitudes to make for the ‘Streets Paved with Gold’ of developed nations. Stop them coming? Ha! That’s what you think, Mr Trump, Mr Johnson. (both descended from immigrants, by the way) Build a wall, they’ll climb over, tunnel under, find a way around. Bring in legislation – they won’t bother to read it. The USA is a country peopled almost entirely by immigrants – and not going back many generations either. If you are reading this, then almost certainly you too, like me, are an immigrant. Question is, how do we prevent these boatloads of miserable wretches risking their lives crossing perilous seas in search of a new life? We strive to help them in their countries of origin, teaching, always teaching, and giving hope, with agricultural and scientific development, instead of talking to them about god and heaven and that sort of stuff.

And finally… barking mad

Odd news fom around the world A man who was shot by his Rottweiler has said he’s long forgiven the offending dog. Harold Gilligan, 74, was left with three broken ribs, an injured lung and a broken collarbone after his dog Charlie caught the trigger of his gun with his claw. The incident cut short Gilligan’s hunting trip and landed him in the hospital, where doctors ultimately decided to leave the bullet inside him. Gilligan, from the US state of New Mexico, told ABC News: “I never thought this would happen. It’s an interesting story: ‘a dog shot a man!’” He added: “He didn’t mean to do it. He’s a good dog.” Thanks to irishlegal.com Actress Katie Holmes ‘unknowingly

The Queen’s weird royal rule that made Diana’s nights hell THE QUEEN made Diana’s evenings “agony” by keeping the Princess of Wales up late as time-honoured royal rules dictated nobody should go to bed before the Queen, it has been claimed. And Diana is said to have found it so difficult to stay up that she was driven to excuse herself before the Queen, breaking the royal rule. Speaking in a previous interview, Sir William Heseltine, one of the Queen’s former private secretaries, described how Diana found the rule hard to follow. Sir William said: “For Diana the long royal evenings were agony. “There’d be an hour or so in the sitting room of everyone sitting around

Vegetarians have reacted in horror to reports that a restaurant owner in Bangkok killed a 61-year-old customer - and then disposed of his body by serving the cooked flesh to other diners. The restaurant owner allegedly went on the run after it emerged that he had hidden the chunks of meat in supposedly veggie meals. However, Thai media is claiming that the reports are fake. Half-naked woman falls through kitchen ceiling Staff at a Tennessee restaurant were forced to call police when a half-naked woman fell through the ceiling of the kitchen area.
