Summer celebrations

Beach concerts back? T

he prospect of the return of big concerts and other events to beaches in the Playa de Las Américas area has been warmly welcomed by the tourism sector in the south of the island.

The door has been reopened for the holding of major events thanks to a change in Spain’s legislation on coasts, which had been the cause of the blanket ban on megaconcerts such as Son Latinos nearly a decade ago on environmental grounds. The annual music festival attracted upwards of 100,000 people to the Las Vistas beach prior

to its cancellation in 2004. The loss of that event and the subsequent lack of financial support for the ‘big stars concerts that brought the likes of Elton John and Rod Stewart to the island, has hit the summer bookings of the accommodation sector hard over the last few years and by default, the bars, restaurants and leisure sector in the area. The new rules mean that events can be held provided that strict measures are taken to ensure the beaches are not damaged by the presence of thousands of music fans. Arona town hall says the change, which allows private functions such as beach dinners to be

held also, will bring a big boost for the tourist industry. However, some are already voicing concern that post-concert clean-ups will not be thorough enough to restore the beaches to their original state. Opponents

are already posting photographs on websites of the effects of previous events on the beaches. The news came as 42 blue flags were awarded to some Canarian beaches to denote the quality of clean-

liness and services there. Unfortunately the ongoing dispute with the lifeguards in Arona over wage arrears dating back 10 months has seen the town lose their flags at Los Cristianos, El Camisón and Las Vistas.

COMPENSATION MADNESS

SPANISH SMEs FUNDING There’s been a lot of talk lately about credit lines for SMEs in Spain and Italy. Declarations were made at the end of May by Wolfgang Schaeuble, the German Finance Minister stating their concern over how the small and medium enterprises in Spain couldn’t access funding, causing the continued growth of unemployment and the lack of investors or work in Southern Europe – as Italy shares the same problem.

COMPENSATION MADNESS

SPANISH SMES FUNDING were apparently committed to cut and optimise employment levels in the civil service and in the companies which are maintained at public cost, companies in the Canaries such as Turismo de Tenerife, Visocan or Gráficas Sabater to name just a few. So far they have done nothing noteworthy in this respect, so the government apparatus continues to require financial resources which are becoming more difficult to

El Hierro

obtain, raising the tax burden on nationals and residents via direct taxes (income tax, corporation tax) or indirect (local VAT, fuel tax, etc.) The case of one particular company which is interesting and worth mentioning has recently come to our notice. In February 2012, a new national law was introduced to make redundancies easier and cheaper – supposedly to boost employment. However, in this same law, the provisions for the redundancy payoffs were changed and the company had to pay 100 per cent of the money to the employee, (previously they paid only 60 per cent, the rest came from the Wage Guarantee Fund -Fogasa). Under the new rules, this additional 40 per cent initially comes out of the company’s pocket and they must claim it back

Wolfgang Schaeuble

– a year after the payment has been made. This obviously causes cash flow problems for companies and a catch 22 situation. They cannot afford to pay for layoffs that are necessary due to a downturn in the level of work or orders in order to ensure the survival of the company and maintain other jobs. If the company makes redundancies, they have to use

financial resources which are needed for other expenses and then get the cash back a year later – without interest! However, if as a company, or a taxpayer, you are late in paying tax obligations, the situation is very different. You face a series of fines, surcharges and constraints that significantly raise the tax burden you bear. The Spanish media are constantly urging the necessity of creating jobs, but who dares to create new positions within this framework where at least one of the partners in the mix makes the laws, playing with an unfair advantage where the rules are unequal and favour themselves? Given the above, it is hardly surprising that the latest statistics tell us that unemployment is running at 34 per cent and that four SMEs close in the Canaries every week.

Canarian togetherness

As La Graciosa island makes its bid to become the official eighth island, El Hierro distanced itself from the rest of the islands by cancelling its Canarian Day celebrations.

El Hierro’s Cabildo President Alpidio Armas announced the cancellation accompanied by the PP councillor María de Carmen Morales, to protest at the ongoing problems of their maritime connections with the rest of the archipelago. “We’ve not got the heart for celebrations,” Armas declared, “if we aren’t Canarian enough for some things, then neither are we Canarian enough to celebrate Canarian Day”.

Court case

Oil drilling nearer

A slap in the face for environmentalists and the Lanzarote Cabildo as their bid to suspend the drilling 60 kilometres off their coastline has been rejected by the Spanish Supreme Court.

The Cabildo requested the suspension claiming that the drilling would put the island’s natural resources in danger and affect their fishing fleets and their main activity – tourism. However the Court refused their request and also the suggestion that the European Court should be consulted to see if Spain was following EU directives about the protection of the environment. The judges replied that this wasn’t the time to talk about consulting the European Court, claiming, “This is a something to settle within the main issue and at a later date”.

This was a fun and worthy event which is sure to be repeated.

Registration Certificate

News in Brief >>

UK parliament

Right to vote returned?

The thorny issue of expats who have lived away from Britain for many years being unable to vote in home elections is back in the headlines after the European Commission’s announcement that it will seek to persuade the UK government to change the rule.

Presenting the new EU Citizenship Report last week, Commission vice-president Vivienne Reding said she would work on ways for EU nationals to retain their voting rights in their countries of origin regardless of how long they have been living elsewhere in Europe. “The practice in some member states of depriving their citizens of their right to vote once they move to another EU country is effectively tantamount to punishing citizens for having exercised their right to free movement” said Reding. The topic is a particularly hot one in places such as the Canaries, where British residents compare their situation to that of Canarians living abroad who are actively courted by political parties at election time to secure their votes. The ‘foreign’ vote is considered so crucial to the election outcome, particularly in the smaller islands, that one of the main parties regularly sends a delegation to countries such as Venezuela to canvass Canarian expats, many of whom have lived abroad for more than half a century and have never paid taxes here.

As reported in our last edition, the paper contacted various official bodies and subsequently received confirmation in writing from the Interior Ministry that certificates are valid indefinitely but can, at the request of the holder, be updated after five years of residence to have the wording “permanent resident” added. We then pointed out to the Ministry that the Spanish National Police website’s section on Immigration Procedures for EU citizens contained a misleading reference to a five-year renewal obligation under Article 7 of Spain’s Royal Decree governing registration formalities, when no such obligation in fact appeared in the article. Within a few days, the website had been modified and the reference deleted, to be replaced by crystal-clear information that the green

Her son Ben flew to the Canaries to assist with the search and to launch an appeal on Spanish TV to help find his mother, who is now believed to have fallen to her death. Lanzarote police say a body was recovered following a four-hour rescue operation ordered after a local man reported he had seen human remains at a remote cliffside spot at Punta de Gayo in Haria, not far from where the pensioner was known to be heading by bus for a coastal path hike. Although at the time of going to press the badly decomposed body has yet to be formally identified, police sources on the island have said that the clothes are “very similar” to those Mrs Holt was wearing when last seen. Mrs Holt’s son Ben confirmed to Island Connections by telephone that he had been informed of Monday’s find. The Foreign Office said that it also had been informed of the discovery although it was unable to confirm the reports that the body was that of the pensioner. “We are aware that a body has been found and are making further enquiries at this stage” said a spokesman.

Joint custody strategy?

Domestic violence claims A report in a Las Palmas newspaper concerning a noticeable rise in false accusations of domestic violence filed against men in Gran Canaria to stop them being given joint custody of children in divorce cases appears to have ruffled feathers but no-one is quite sure just whose. Canarias 7 ran the headline story, citing sources in the courts who confirmed that officials were becoming increasingly worried at the alleged use of the tactic to swing custody battles in the mother’s favour. The paper quoted an unnamed female prosecutor who admitted she had come across, “around 50 very suspicious cases” of complaints filed against men shortly after they applied for custody of their children as part of divorce proceedings. One such man, named only as Luis, described how his amicable separation and divorce were going smoothly until he asked for equal access to his youngsters and was then suddenly quizzed over alleged domestic violence. “Once a complaint is lodged it automatically prevents the husband from getting custody” said Luis. Mysteriously, the story, which attracted numerous reader comments, disappeared from the Canarias 7 website just hours after being published, with no explanation offered.

The controversial politician, who made national headlines two years ago when he was involved in a drunken row at a Madrid police station after allegedly being ejected from a nearby lap-dancing club, has ‘ruled’ La Gomera since 1991 and lost his immunity as a member of the Spanish Senate as a result of the fracas. According to the media, he is also under investigation in connection with the origins of his personal fortune. Reports have been circulating in various quarters of

Coincidentally or not, the La Gomera Cabildo president’s appearances in the Tenerife media have increased noticeably in recent weeks and have included several full-length interviews about his political career.

Canarian airports

Flight delays continue Airports in the Canaries continue to be hit by delays to flights, according to the latest figures published by Eurocontrol, Europe’s air traffic authority. The Canaries’ Control Centre was the 12th worst “delay generation location” in Europe in April for accumulated delays, with a daily total of 310 minutes due mainly to limited air traffic control capacity, adverse weather and, strange as it may seem, disruption caused by military exercises. However, the Canaries fared better than some other parts of Spain such as Barcelona, which came 7th in the table of worst offenders (559 minutes daily). The April rankings were headed again by Heathrow, which posted total delays of 1,525 daily minutes due to windy conditions and the trialling of a new landing configuration for the airport.

It has emerged that the man who caused panic at the Las Vistas beach in the resort towards the end of May when he attacked five people with a 10-inch knife, was on parole after his recent release from jail. The 47-year-old, who had tried to rob a car hire agency a short time earlier, was eventually tackled and restrained by an off-duty policemen from Santa Cruz, who happened to be at the beach with his family at the time. Questions are now being asked about the level of supervision of the man’s movements since his release from jail, given that his official place of residence was an address in La Palma.

T

he scandal, with ironic timing, breaks as Senator Gregorio Medina registers disgust at national government’s decision to deny the Canary Islands’ long-standing request for a fire-fighting plane. “This is an incomprehensible and irresponsible decision... highlighting the insensitivity of central government towards this region, which lies one thousand, eight hundred kilometres away from the mainland… and includes important National Parks and islands which are Biosphere Reserves”. Medina will now elicit the aid of central government’s regional representative, Maria del Carmen Hernández Ben. He will ask her to get the decision reconsidered, given what he justifiably describes as: “The silence of Canarian minister José Manuel Soria”, whose job he believes it really is. Medina also considers it: “Unthinkable that the Canarian archipelago should be without at least one plane in each province… after what happened last summer”. The fact that the planes need several hours to arrive here from Spain certainly contributed to last August’s disaster. A hydro plane

arriving soon after a fire starts is very likely to extinguish it. Access to fires in the Canaries is often impossible by road. All of this is obvious. Medina’s outrage at Madrid is understandable, but there are other, important, factors that place all of us in danger and prejudice the safety of these islands. They have nothing to do with Madrid and much to do with the astonishing incompetence

Phone scandal

La Gomera is abuzz with indignation after social networks released a leaked conversation between two public figures whose ‘management’ of last August’s fire turned it into a five star debacle and the flying matter has hit the fan. By Barbara Belt of local authorities. It is believed in some sectors of the public that La Gomera’s fire was a classic example of blunder and cover up.

were trapped, waiting for the worst to happen, as it did that night. Chaos is an understatement. Three thousand people fled as best they could, ending up milling in the port, where of course no

too late is not mentioned by the island senator. His political colleagues’ ignorance and torpor cost the island dear. A few hours’ journey pales into insignificance beside the delay in requesting help. Another factor is that at least one of these machines waited, useless, on the tarmac in La Gomera while fire roared out of control nearby. ‘Correct administrative procedures’ had not been fol-

del Carmen Rodriguez, and Humberto Gutiérrez, Gobierno de Canarias Technical Director for Safety and Emergencies at the time, confirms that nobody knew what they were doing. Protest group La Gomera Se Mueve put the conversation on Youtube, where it has been picked up by press and angry islanders. It took place just before midnight on August 12, as the fire, which had revived

eight days earlier in the mountains, leapt down into one of the island’s most populated areas and main tourist destination, Valle Gran Rey. Mountain villages and the upper valley had by then been evacuated for three days, with evacuees in makeshift dormitories at the school and Cultural Centre in the lower valley. The only road out was closed and there is no local ferry, so we

provision at all had been made. When Olsen and Armas ferries eventually sailed in out of the night, there was a mad rush to board them. Rumours that the nearby petrol station would blow were the last straw. Miraculously, nobody was killed, but over a hundred houses were burnt, livestock was killed and thousands of fruit trees, palm trees and crops were lost in the fire, which raced out of control through the valley, decimating it. Highlights of the conversation, which could have been marvelled at in full had in not been hastily obliterated to protect those implicated, are as follows: The first gaffe comes from Rodriguez (Cabildo-female), who, incredibly, had no idea of Gutiérrez’s (regional government-male) role when she phoned “to liase”. He puts her straight, then she asks him where to send the people of Valle Gran Rey, (who have been streaming into the port for the previous three hours). He tells

her, “We’re sending them down”. “But, down where?” she asks. “To the beach. They won’t burn there”, he replies, adding totally incorrectly, “Or they can go to the refuge in Casa de La Seda”. There was never a refuge at Casa de La Seda, which was anyway ablaze when this conversation was taking place. The two real refuges in the lower valley were evacuated by then. She asks why they can’t send in planes. He tells her no way, not at night, at which she expresses surprise and asks if they can’t send in another “of those brigades” (having failed to learn the name of the UMEUnidad Military de Emergencia-already at work). He says, “Well, now, you’ve got the UME there. We’ve told them to lend a hand, and the Guardia Civil too.” “What good did they do? They ran away as fast as they could. They’ve been there all day. I don’t understand”, she replies. The island at this point had been burning for nearly two weeks, but she had no idea what the UME - who were there risking their lives were, or that hydro planes can’t night fly. “Bloody hell Ventura! If not, they would have burnt”, he says, sounding exasperated. At this point, Gutiérrez first admits the barranco will burn (it was blazing) and damage is inevitable, “It’ll burn. Don’t worry, four palm trees’ll go and maybe a house’ll be affected, but that’s it. Tell them to go down and hang on and tomorrow we’ll go in and wet it all”, he says, leaving Valle Gran Rey to burn. “OK, thanks”, says Rodriguez, hanging up. Amidst the clamour for her resignation, she insists “enemies” have manipulated the conversation and all trace of the offending conversation have today disappeared from the internet. Stand by your buckets. We’re on our own!

fter a considerable length of time wrangling, the enerife’s influential A meeting a few weeks ago between Cabildo repreT hotel sector has given sentatives and central Government representatives from its full backing to plans to the Ministry of Development has borne fruit and Los Rodeos airport will now be opening longer hours. Biter bit as pulling in a half ton Atlantic blue marlin sank a fishing boat off the Punta Rasca. The Sailfisher, a specialist in sport fishing, carrying its Captain, one member of crew and two Russian clients, managed to reel in the enormous fish, but to get it on board, they opened the back hatch, a disastrous decision, given the high seas at the time. They sank within minutes. Luckily the ship Dotsy Too was in the area and immediately came to the aid of the Sailfisher crew and passengers and brought them safely into harbour at Puerto Colón. No doubt to exchange many a fishy tale with their friends and family about the one that got away.

The extension will be 15 minutes more in the morning and an hour more at night, from 7am to 11pm. Vueling, one of the companies who declared interest in the airport opening longer, has already changed their connection times with Barcelona and made the airport a hub for one of their planes. New routes are planned to La Coruña from the end of October and Oviedo from November. At the moment the estimate is that there will be 115,00 more flight places into the northern airport a year and the conservative estimate is for 86,000 more passengers. Carlos Alonso, tourism councillor for Tenerife, announced, “We believe that the (additional) income for the island will be around €21 million and it will create 638 new jobs directly and indirectly”. More applications for the new time slots are also possible. Managing Director of the island’s tourist board, Miguel Ángel Santos, confirmed, “We are working with other national and international companies and it’s looking good.”

commemorate the Beatles’ visit 50 years ago by inviting Paul McCar tney to the island to receive an award. Enrique Talg, vice-president of sector association Ashotel, says the plans to confer on McCartney an Illustrious Visitor honour in recognition of the stay back in 1963 by three members of the band (all but John Lennon, who holidayed instead on the Costa del Sol) were a wonderful idea and would be a major publicity boost for Puerto de la Cruz and the island as a whole. “Tenerife deserves to have its famous visitors honoured, just as other places do, and I have written to

ne of the two well-connected young drivers convicted of causing the hit and run deaths of three pedestrians during a car race on a busy Santa Cruz road over six years ago is continuing his battle to avoid going to jail. As reported here, the two men, who were teenagers at the time, were found guilty of killing an elderly couple and their handi-

capped daughter, who died from horrific injuries sustained in the high-speed collision. The trial made the headlines not only because of the defendants’ political connections (both are from influential families, with one the stepson of former Canarian president Adån Martin) but because of bizarre goings-on during the proceedings, including the mysterious

Forgers arrested

Making money A group of amateur banknote forgers have been arrested in Tenerife after the detection of fake money in various parts of the island in recent months. Four people, one of them a teenager, face charges after being detained in the La Laguna area following the successful conclusion of a discreet investigation launched back in October when a number of shops and bars discovered they had been given forged â‚Ź50 notes. Police say the quartet made the notes using computer equipment and either used them in shops to buy inexpensive items and receive legal tender as change or sold them on to others for as little as â‚Ź5 each. Back in February a Lithuanian couple were arrested as they tried to fly out of Tenerife with â‚Ź13,000 in high-quality fake â‚Ź100 notes which they had produced themselves.

erasure of part of the mandatory recording of the trial. The lawyer of one of the pair subsequently failed to have the original conviction overturned due to the erasure, which he said had prevented him from reviewing the case for appeal. Following the confirmation of the jail terms for both men a few weeks ago, the same lawyer has now filed another appeal to keep his client out of

prison, this time on a technicality concerning the sentencing notification procedure followed, and says he will take the case to the Constitutional Court if necessary. The second defendant has accepted the conviction and is due to enter jail shortly to serve his sentence of almost three years. The sentences were widely criticised at the time for being much too lenient as punishment for the triple manslaughter.

Gßímar

MAYOR FALLS ON OWN SWORD

fter a period of relative A calm, political intrigue has returned to the lo-

cal government scene in Tenerife, this time with the surprise ousting of Gßímar’s mayor as a result of a censure motion led by his former partners. The PSOE’s Rafael Yanes, who was elected mayor in 2011 in an alliance with the Popular Party, has been toppled following the latter’s decision to switch allegiances and join forces with the Canarian Coalition (CC) and a small local party, which sees the PP’s Carmen Castro take over the chain of office. A furi-

ous Yanes urged his party leadership to intervene to halt the motion of censure, given that at regional level it shares government with the CC and could initiate tit-for-tat retaliations, including the fall of President Paulino Rivero and the mayors of several big town and cities. However, Yanes was informed that, due to his decision to go his own way and do a deal with the PP two years ago, Gßímar does not figure on the list of “protectedâ€? towns and Cabildos where the PSOE and CC have promised to support each other.

There were fears that the project would never get off the ground after a public competition for the tender had to be scrapped back in April and the conditions revised to attract bidders. It is expected to cost around â‚Ź100 million, significantly less than the original amount envisaged under the first specification. In addition to the marina for 250 boats and fishing harbour, the redevelopment will also see two new car parks - one of them underground - and a modern shopping and business precinct. The project, which along with the beach redevelopment at MartiĂĄnez, is the main feature of the modernisation plans for Puerto de la Cruz, is not expected to be completed until 2020.

More demonstrations

Sign of the times Further evidence of the current troubled times can be seen in the astonishing rise in the number of demonstrations and similar events which took place in the Tenerife capital in 2012. The annual report issued recently by Santa Cruz police reveals that a protest of some kind took place on the city streets almost every day during the twelve month period, with the total number a massive five times higher than the previous year. Officers were dispatched to provide a presence at 303 demonstrations, compared to just 61 in 2011, the report indicates. Although the vast majority of the marches and rallies were low-key, they nonetheless reflected simmering discontent at a range of issues from cutbacks in health education and social services to redundancies and evictions suffered by home-loan defaulters.

Old and new

Cobblers A brand new business is bringing a flavour of the past to the centre of Icod de los Vinos. Puss in Boots, or El gato con botas as it is called in Spanish, is a traditional cobbler that also undertakes various kinds of leatherwork. Even the machines are olde worlde and are worth a visit in themselves. Visit the main high street in the town centre, C/ San Sebastian, and you’ll find the shop at number 10. Alternatively, call 665 287 124 for enquiries.

Interest Rates Are Still Falling

By Paul Montague, Partner, Blevins Franks

B

ank interest rates continue to fall. In the UK, only one account now provides enough return to beat inflation, while here in the Eurozone the main interest rate has been cut to a record low. The European Central Bank (ECB) last cut its benchmark fixed rate in July 2012, when it was reduced by 25 basis points to 0.75%. At its May Governing Council’ meeting, policymakers voted to reduce it again, this time to 0.5%, in a bid to kick-start the Eurozone’s ailing economy. ECB President Mario Draghi promised that “monetary policy stance will remain accommodative for as long as needed”. He raised the possibility of another

rate cut if necessary, after some policymakers had pushed for a larger cut this time.

The Bank also cut its marginal lending rate to banks from 1.5% to 1%. The overnight deposit rate was kept at 0%, but Draghi said that the ECB was “technically ready” to take this rate into negative territory if necessary.

More recently, This is Money reported that there is now just one account in the UK, a tax-free cash ISA, which pays a high enough return to beat inflation.

UK interest rates The Bank of England interest rate is now in its fifth year of 0.5%, after being cut to this historic low in March 2009. Although economic data has looked better in the UK recently, money markets are not pricing in an interest rate rise to 0.75% until late 2017, with 1% in early 2019 and 1.25% in the second half of 2020. This would mean 10 years of rates at 0.5% or 1%,

something which has already had a huge impact on savers. At the end of March, the UK action group Save our Savers pointed out that the UK government had imposed a more severe confiscation of savers’ funds than

Bank savings rates in the UK have continued to fall, partly due to the government’s Funding for Lending scheme.

Agualand adventure W

e had a great morning

with the extraordinarily well-behaved five to six

year olds from Colegio Costa Adeje during their visit to Agualand! The kids had a great time, the staff were superb and the organisation, thanks to CitSur and of course the Agualand team, incredible. The Agualand staff organised an educational visit that kept them all busy and entertained for the whole morning!

The group of 62 were divided into two teams, one of which went off with some of the Agualand monitors to play games which taught them the importance of keeping the sea clean and how to recycle and the other group filed into the classroom to see slides on dolphins and learn about what they ate, how they lived, why they are part of the mammal family, and body parts etc. Then the teams switched. Breakfast was in the stands of the dolphinarium and there followed

a private show, just for them! This one however had additions to the regular show in that they were invited to see for them-

selves on the bodies of the enchanting models, the information they had been given in the classroom. A final treat, for being so well behaved was a visit to see two week old Barbie with her mum and two other

dolphins that are expected to give birth any day now. The visit was organised as part of the Cit Sur’s ongoing campaign for friendly tourism and is designed to show children of all ages what the

island has to offer to tourists, where their family work, the sort of jobs available in tourism, its importance in the economy and the need to be welcoming to the visitors and look after the island.

O

n May 16, a hearing was due to take place in Santa Cruz to hear the appeals of a substantial number of clients represented by a prominent legal group. However, prior to the hearing, we understand that the Judge requested a private meeting with the lawyer representing those clients, a lawyer for the Canarian Government and two Canarian Tourist Inspectors. A report published on a prominent web blog suggests that the Judge “commented” to the parties present that he considered

LEGAL ROUNDUP

Renting your property to tourists – latest update the Canarian rental Law to be valid and applicable against the defendants in this instance. The Judge also allegedly “commented” that previous decisions of the Canarian High Court which had overruled these licensing provisions of the Canarian tourist rental law, were not relevant to the cases now before him. It appears that the Judge then invited the lawyer in question to recommend to his clients that they just accept defeat and settle their cases out of court by paying

a reduced fine in the sum of €5,000, rather than arguing the legal issues and having the matter determined at a hearing. At this stage, it does not appear that the Judge gave any legal reasoning to support his conclusions. Notwithstanding the Judge’s “comments” in a private meeting, our legal opinion remains unchanged. European Directive 2006/123/EC (known as the ‘Bolkestein Directive’) is clear and unequivocal. It applies to the provision of all services in the European Union

(including tourist rentals). It applies to all individuals, organisations and companies. In terms of tourist rentals, there is no class or group exempt from the directive and there is no exemption for the Canary Islands.

We are however surprised that the web blog failed to highlight that the proposed settlement is purely voluntary and that competent lawyers might not simply accept the Judge’s “comments” at face value when they are at odds Regrettably, it is becom- with both European law and ing increasingly common- the prior interpretation of place for national Judges to other Canarian Judges. defend their own country’s Even if the Judge was to laws in defiance of Europe. rule against those clients after That is perhaps why so a full hearing, that decision many cases from across the could still be appealed if necEuropean Union are referred or appealed to the European essary, as far as the European Court of Justice. Court of Justice. Given that

the cost of such appeal process could be spread among the large number of clients being represented, the cost to each client of that appeal process should be minimal and certainly less than the €5,000 fine that the Judge is allegedly suggesting that each defendant should now stump up in defeat. As such, we believe that all affected clients should consider rejecting the proposed settlement and insist that their cases are vigorously defended in accordance with their original instructions and legal fees paid. The above comments represent our analysis of the situation and the law and should not be construed as legal advice applicable to any individual case or circumstances.

Fabulous Fañabé T

  his is, of course, one of the main considerations, but it is also vital to take into account the property’s location, as no matter how well it meets your requirements, if it is just not in the right area for you, you will never be as happy as you could be there.

When buying or renting a property one of the first ideas people have is of the kind of house or apartment they require.

The town has been thoughtfully developed and has an open and airy feel to it, with wide avenues, grand hotels and well tended gardens which bless the streets with a suitably tropical feel. This is where the majority of the town’s tourist activity takes place and as such there is an abundance of holiday property, from aparthotels through to five-star hotels such as the Iberostar Grand Hotel Salome and Anthelia.

Obviously, it is vital to get it right first time if you are buying, but even if you are renting, a second move soon after relocating to a new town involves yet another investment of time and money. So, either way, it’s important to spend time exploring each potential area before committing yourselves. Luckily, in the south of Tenerife, one of the most popular areas in the Canary Islands at the moment, there are plenty of wonderful towns and villages to choose from and with the above in mind we decided to take an in-depth look at each of them.

Nevertheless, there is a wide choice of residential property and the area has attracted a cosmopolitan mix of people that means that a walk through its streets is to hear accents and languages from all of Europe and beyond. And it works well. It also means there is a broad range of cuisine available, as well as plenty of shops, including the area’s own commercial centre called Fañabé Plaza. There is also a market that takes place twice a week. It sells a variety of goods from clothes to souvenirs and attracts many hundreds of people who flock to the area in search of bargains.

All of them have several things in common such as fabulous Atlantic views and a plethora of beaches on hand, but each and every one has its very own individual characteristics. We have already looked at Callao Salvaje, Playa Paraiso and La Caleta, and in this edition we shall talk a walk around the Fañabé area.

Beach and mountains The Fañabé neighbourhood has two very distinct faces to it. There is a small town situated in the hills to the south of Adeje and an area which runs down to the coast, spreading along the seashore. The apartments and houses in the upper town area sweep up the foothills in an organised tier which allows for very fair access to the wonderful coastal views, and they provide a comfortable mix of older properties and newer complexes. There are all the usual amenities including restaurants and a mix of shops, and it is also home to a well established horse-riding centre

area. This second zone, situated in the flat land at the base of the Adeje Mountains, is named after its beach area and is thus known as Playa Fañabé.

which is open to both residents and visitors. Situated as it is, it is a good area for those who like to feel a little countryside around them, but don’t want to be too far away from a larger town area. Fañabé is, in fact, only just over 15 minutes from the southern airport and no more than 10 minutes into any of the larger urbanizations such as La Caleta and Playa de Las Américas. From the hill town you simply cross under the TF1 motorway down to the coast to the residential and tourist section of the

There is also a fine beach – covering a wide sweeping bay the Fañabé / Torviscas beach provides a delightfully sheltered area with generally calm seas. Though the sand is volcanic grey it is nonetheless a good beach and perfect for families. For those who like a stroll the coastal path winds its way along the coastline and there are so many cafeterias situated along the front that one could while away many an afternoon without ever visiting the same place twice. In short, Fañabé provides an opportunity for those looking for a more tranquil pace of life without being too far from all life’s necessities, as well as for those who appreciate being in a town and at the same time near to the beach.

Energy Certificates

The truth behind the law The Spanish Government was ordered by a European Directive to bring into force Energy Certificates and did so in the Royal Decree 235/2013 of the 5th April this year. This law states that all purchasers or users of a building are entitled to see the Certificate of Energy Efficiency before making a purchase or taking out a lease; Therefore promoting energy efficient buildings. Public buildings were required to obtain a certificate two years before the general public. They are required to display their energy (certificate) in the form of a sticker like the ones you see on new fridges and ovens. Public

buildings that are bigger than 500m2 must display their sticker now and buildings that are 250m2 must do so from 9/7/15. On the purchase or lease of a property the new owner or tenant must be given the certificate or copy of if they are the tenant. New builds that are started as of 31/12/2018 must be virtually “free of energy use”. Certificates can only be issued by a certified and registered professional, such as

those who are permitted to issue official building works management, ‘technical engineers’. The technical engineer will visit the property to make certain tests and checks that are necessary to issue the certificate. These certificates are valid for 10 years. It is the property owner who is responsible for the renewal of the certificate. The owner may also, during the 10 years, update the certificate if he has had work done to improve the quality of energy

Elements such as the type of heating, use of green energy, insulation and energy efficient equipment will be taken into account in issuing the certificates efficiency. This law applies not only on the Spanish peninsula but on the islands as well. Your certificate will be registered with the Regional authority and will become public data. The certificate will contain information on the energy characteristics and

quality of efficiency, technical installation and the consumption (calculated and average) for heating, refrigeration, ventilation, hot water, and lighting. It will also show the catastral reference (property registry) number of the property, a description of the tests carried out, confirm that the building has been built according to its plans and if it hasn’t then a modification must be shown. Both businesses premises and homes fall under this law, be they new or old. Not included in the law are monuments that are officially protected because of their architectural or historic value, Churches or buildings that are solely used for religious activities, provisional buildings whose use will not exceed two years and buildings that are for agricultural use, industrial processes and workshops. The certificate can make recommendations for lowering the use of energy, but it must not promote a par-

Crisis management

Fecam, the federation of local authorities, invited all the banks to sign a protocol to help avoid evictions, sadly one of the banks responded, Cajasiete. The president of the federation, Ramón Plasencia remarked, “Three banks didn’t even reply and the rest have met with us but didn’t want to sign, although we don’t know why”. José Manuel Garrido, spokesperson for Cajasiete, clarified that evictions are not a problem for them as they never exposed themselves to the property ‘bubble’ and declared that they

ticular product or system or something that has a patent. The promoter or owner is responsible for obtaining the certificate and keeping it safe. The government has the legal right to make an inspection. The energy sticker must be displayed on any publicity or promotion of the property, when renting or selling the property. Properties that do not have the certificate and sticker may not be advertised. Owners/promotors (including estate agents and rental agencies) will be fined if the energy certificate is not available to a tenant or purchaser. Further information, including a complete translation of the new certificate, can be found on the excellently informative TIBC website at www.tibc-dhc.com.

Cajasiete pledge to help prevent evictions History revisted!

Foreign property buyers increase have signed the agreement because they feel morally obliged to do so. The agreement creates an arbitration service where members of the local councils can speak for the people in debt and the social services can become involved so that nobody is deprived of the only roof they have. Fecam have announced that they are planning to train their social workers in how to fight the “voracious bank machines” and have warned that they will withdraw their accounts from banks which evict clients without trying all the avenues possible.

The housing market in the Canaries is taking on an increasingly foreign flavour, with nearly a quarter of all properties sold being bought up by non-locals. Statistics released for last year by the College of Property Registrars show that, despite the depressed market, foreigners accounted for 3,300 purchases, putting the Canaries second in the national table for non-local buyers, a fraction behind the top-placed Balearics, although the latter saw just 2,000 sales. Experts predict the Canarian figure may well increase by the end of this year as prices continue to fall and locals still encounter problems obtaining home loans from banks. Foreigners, particularly Britons, continue to view the islands as an attractive location to buy property, not just for residential use.

Gardening A-Z / PART I :: Insecticides often kill useful insects as well

Basil is a herbaceous plant

Genus: in the plant Kingdom the order of main definition categories runs: Phylum (Division), Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species Germination: is the beginning of growth from seeds and also refers to starting plants from seed.

What does it all mean? Learn the ins and outs of horticultural-speak.

Grafting: is a method of reproducing plants where a shoot (a scion) from one plant is inserted into a cut in the rootstock of another plant. It can have several advantages such as speeding fruit production, introducing hardiness aspects to new plants or to provide a pollen source. Ground cover: are low growing plants, usually with particular root characteristics, which provide ground covering to prevent erosion and/or weeds. Growth regulators: can be used to increase or decrease growth rates. Hardiness: refers to the ability of a plant to endure climate changes, usually from summer temperatures to winters and frost. Hardiness Zone: is a geographical area defined by its climatic conditions in which a specific category of plant is capable of growing, including its resistance to minimum temperatures.

W

hen buying seeds, watching your favourite gardening programme, or working out whether a plant is suitable for your plot it’s important to know just what those gardening terms mean.

Hardwood: this is used to refer to dicotyledonous shrubs and trees or their wood, such as oak, beech and ash.

In this A-Z guide we are covering some of the most commonly used and most useful terms. Some you will probably know, others will be new, and some are there just for interest – they’re in everyday use, we all have a rough idea of what they signify, but it’s fascinating when you think about their full meaning. This edition we start with family, working our way through grafting, hardy and invasive right the way to low maintenance: an actionpacked expedition through the intricacies of horticultural language.

Family: in the plant kingdom this botanical division contains one or more genera (the plural of genus – see below). Feeder roots: these are the fine, hair-like roots via which plants obtain their nutrients and water. Ferns: are flowerless plants that reproduce via spores, not seeds.

Fertiliser burn: using too much fertiliser can be just as fatal

Hardy: these plants can survive quite severe winter temperature changes without the need for protection. Heartwood: is the usually richly coloured and aromatic wood in the centre of the trunk and branches. Gardening has its own language

Heat Zone: the American Horticultural Society’s Heat Zone indicators are being adopted around the world. They show the average number of days each year that a region experiences day with temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius. The system, used in conjunction with Hardiness Zones gives a better idea of climatic conditions in each area.

Fibrous root system: is one

Floriferous: this fabulous word refers to plants that flower a lot.

that is made up of numerous fine roots with usually a few lateral roots as well.

Flower: pretty as they are, these are the reproductive organ of seed-producing plants.

Field capacity: is the amount

Foliage plant: these are ones

of water contained in a soil after natural drainage due to gravity has finished.

that are chosen for their attractive leaves, as opposed to flowers.

Filler tree or shrub: these

plant can be made to grow and/or bloom out of its normal season.

Herb: is usually used to refer to the deliciously aromatic plants used for seasoning, but is also the same as the category below.

Frond: is the leaf of a fern or palm plant – it’s delightful to watch the palm fronds sway in the breeze.

Herbaceous plant: Plants that lack woody stems. They often die back to the roots in the winter and growth resumes in spring.

to plants as not having enough nutrients.

are fast growing plants that are used to provisionally fill an area for aesthetic reasons whilst the desired permanent plants grow to an optimum size.

Force: using various methods a

Herbicides: are chemicals that are used to kill herbaceous plants – most weeds are herbaceous. Humus: is the organic matter in soil that is made up of decaying plant material. Hybrids: are plants that have been created by crossing two kinds from different species or varieties. Hydroponics: for this sort of gardening no soil is used: plants are grown in water in which the nutrients they need are suspended. Imperfect flower: a rather misleading term, all it refers to is one that contains either the male (stamen) or female (pistal) organs but not the two. Indicator plant: these are either native to an area or are specifically grown: they can show nutrient and water levels or indicate disease. Insecticides: are chemicals which kill insects and/or protect against their attacks. Unfortunately the majority of them kill all insects, including the useful ones. Invasive plant: are ones that reproduce extremely well causing a problem for other plants. They are often non-native kinds that have been introduced into an area and begin to threaten the local flora, but can also simply be ones which grow to excess. Kitchen garden: a home garden which is designed for producing fruits and vegetables for cooking. Light Conditions: you will often see minimum light conditions listed on seeds. It is important to match the right plant to the right light as they will grow weak and straggly if they don’t receive enough and will burn if put in full sun (strictly speaking, defined as exposure to more than six hours or more of continuous, direct sun per day). Loam: is considered the ideal gardening and agricultural soil as it has the perfect balance between particle size, air space and organic matter. It holds nutrients effectively and retains water well, whilst still allowing any excess to drain away easily. Low maintenance: these are plants that, once established, need little watering, fertilising or pruning. They can be very useful for gardeners with little spare time.

Granadilla de Abona

Biggest cake in Tenerife

A sea of sensations

Sweet celebrations In the run up to Canarian Day on May 30, one company decided to celebrate in huge style by baking the biggest cake that has ever been seen in Tenerife. Hold on to your hats the sweet toothed among you, this cake, prepared by 10 bakers, weighed in at a massive ton, covered 33 square metres and designed to feed up to 10,000 people. Provided by La Tartaría, part of the local company Nuestra Panadería S.L., the cake was given out free along the Avenida Anaga, no doubt to the delight and confusion of our visiting cruise tourists. A voluntary donation for a programme for those in need organised by Mirame TV was suggested.

U

ntil June 9, enjoy a wealth of new taste sensations conjured up using oily fish by the chefs of Granadilla de Abona

Dive into a true sea of sensations where ten of the local restaurants are offering specially created dishes using oily fish as a star ingredient; Sardine croquettes, fish fillets, tuna and avocado bakes, salmon with wrinkled potatoes, stuffed mackerel, and smoked fish paté to name just a few! The menus range from €8 to €25 and blend oily fish choices with local products and participating restaurants are: Tierras del Sur, El Braserito, Imperio de Pintxo a Pintxo, Restaurante El Templete, Restaurante Caballo Blanco, Veinte 04 Surf Café, Restaurante La Langostera, Restaurante Los Roques, Restaurante Yaiday’s and Restaurante Virgen. All the fish have been caught by the local fleet, one of the most important in the island and don’t forget to sample some of the excellent local wines on offer!

La Tartería especialise in personalised cakes and can be found at El Mayorazgo in the CC Hiper Trébols in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Los Olivos, Adeje. More information on www.tarteria.net.

Promoting local areas via their culture, history and especially gastronomy is a very important way of differentiating what we have to offer in Tenerife from other resorts. Yes, five star hotels are fab, but then they have those all over the world, but how many places can offer, for example, a taste of honey made by local bees and stored in a hollowed out Canarian palm or pine tree which was made by a goat herd in his leisure hours whilst pasturing his flock and gathered by hand? In Tenerife, you will find this in Arico, one of the largely unknown gems of Tenerife, and until June 2 a number of local restaurants are offering special dishes containing honey to promote this local product

in cooperation with beekeepers across the island. Eleven establishments are participating, Restaurante Bar de Todos, Bar Montes de Oca, Tasca Los Abriguitos, Toscana Café, Bar-Cafetería El Rinconcito, Restaurante Playa Tajao, Restaurante La Laja, Restaurante Tabaibarril, Restaurante Manolo II, Restaurante Punta Abona and Bar Restaurante Marcos. If you’re one of Island Connections earlybirds, pay a visit to Arico, it’ll sweeten your day!

Economy in the kitchen

Crisis cooking Collecting dried food for the volunteer firemen’s open day in Adeje it occurred to us that it’s not a lot of good giving someone a bag of rice, if the only thing they know how to make with it is a shellfish paella – obviously out of the question if they need to be given the rice. So come on out there, help us out with some austerity recipes! Cheap and cheerful ways to stretch the euro that little bit further!

A thousand flavours!

Culinary delights

Mil Sabores

By Michèle Clarke and Tim Moody

 By Ana Ruiloba 

Dear friends

I

n these difficult times it’s a real joy to find a man dedicated to the pursuit and marketing of the best culinary delights of our land.

W

e visited this lovely restaurant in 2006 on their opening night and were so enamoured of the chef and their food that I wrote a review then – he says it helped him through their first year and now seven years on we were very happy to see that the restaurant is still going strong.

The shrewd negotiation for and optimum transport conditions of these commodities is his commitment, to the great satisfaction of his customers. Extraordinarily knowledgeable in the industry of food and wine in which he has been working for 15 years, Gerard Martin, is a tireless ‘gourmet detective’. Together with his lovely wife, they run a family retail business and distribute to restaurants from Las Zocas (San Miguel) in the south of Tenerife. From 9am to 4pm, we can visit his small bodega and taste the products he has on offer before choosing which we wish to take home. Here, in this cosy atmosphere, we found excellent goat cheeses from the Spanish Pyrenees and the Canaries, Iberian cold cuts from Guijuelo, foie gras and duck and goose magret, French terrines of venison and wild boar and a wide selection of mushrooms and truffles. The cream cheese with black truffle is exquisite - don’t forget to try it! Oils and vinegars complete the display. Searching and selecting from among the best breeders they are able to offer beef, lamb and organic freerange beef from the green pastures of the Catalan Pyrenees – Lleida. T-bone, fillet, entrecote, steaks, burgers ... all vacuum packed and delivered to your home weekly. There are also organic chickens and eggs from Segovia. All this available on pre-order to

ensure the maximum freshness. A rare treat for our wellbeing. Organic cold cuts are also available. I would highly recommend the baked meat with mushrooms as an entrée or appetiser with a glass of good wine. As it’s his bodega, what Gerard – as a good Parisien – treats as his greatest treasure are his wines, selecting the most exquisite examples of the continent. French and Spanish wines and champagne with various awards and decorations adorn the shelves. He invites us to try some and introduces us to their aromas, structure and secrets. When tasted together with a man with a passion for wine this is a truly sensory experience. This week, he recommended us to try a Verdejo from DO. Rueda (Valladolid). It’s a variety of white grape that is rightly famed for its

The menu on offer is modern, tasty, beautifully presented and cooked. Little amuse bouches and a platter of taster starters began our meal. We both chose a meat main course, but we could have chosen any one of the dishes on offer. Everybody else’s in the restaurant looked equally as tempting. I can’t resist a dessert and this also did not disappoint. I know I chose a naughty one, but they are not so large as to be too calorific!

The restaurant itself is very tastefully decorated and the table laid to perfection. The whole experience is such a joy and even more so when the bill presented is not excessive. You don’t have to wait for that special occasion to make the visit worthwhile. Of course, sadly, we do have to wait until the next time we visit the lovely island of Tenerife. I hope it is not too long away.

Dr. De La Flor

Dear Albert, As you probably know, colon polyps are growths located in our large intestine (colon). The cause of most polyps is not known but it’s reassuring to know that most of them are of benign nature. For a polyp to become malignant experts suppose that it takes a few decades. Unfortunately, they usually don’t cause symptoms and can stay clinically ‘silent’ for years. As a matter of fact, often these dormant lesions are found during routine screening tests. If polyps get large, they can cause certain signs and symptoms. Most are mild ones, but bleeding from your rectum or a change in your bowel habits might mean something more sombre. A change in bowel habits includes diarrhoea, constipation, going to the bathroom more often or less often than usual, or a change in the way your stool looks. They are more likely in certain scenarios: if you are 50 or older; positive family history; or you inherited a certain gene that causes you to be more prone to develop polyps. Experts recommend that everyone age 50 or older have a screening test. Finding and removing colon polyps can prevent colon cancer. The screening tests for colon cancer are: fecal occult blood test, barium enema and colonoscopy - doctors can view and if necessar y also remove polyps during the procedure. Colonoscopies aren’t fun but can be life-saving. If you’re a bit scared, let me share with you a comment a patient once made to me about this topic – “Hey Doctor, now I know

how a Muppet feels!” Make sure you talk to your doctor about your need to be tested and that he/she prepares you an easy-to-follow nutritional as well as wellrounded lifestyle game plan. Much can be done since there are several controllable factors - sound nutritional habits are at the top of the list. Stay positive, be proactive and focus all your energies on the controllable factors. Best wishes.

Dear Dr De La Flor,

I have several members in my family with breast issues including cancer. I recently read an article on Angelina Jolie. I had one breast removed a few years back. Is it safer to have the other one done. Thanks, Jana

Dear Jana, You shouldn’t. As Mark Twain states “Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.” I’ll try to respond to multiple questions I’ve received recently regarding this issue recently:

1. Only about five per cent of all breast cancers are in women who have this genetic mutation (BRAC). 2. Mutations in genes raise the risk of cancer by as much as 85 per cent. The mutations also raise the risk of ovarian cancer. BRAC mutations are associated with a more aggressive breast cancer. 3. Preventive or prophylactic mastectomy is one excellent choice. But another superb choice is early detection. And that comes with more active screening. The choice is really the patient’s to make, and I really want to emphasize, it is a choice. 5. It is always a double mastectomy because both breasts are at risk and you don’t know which one will be the problematic. Surgery can reduce the risk by 90 per cent. 6. If a woman knows she has a BRAC mutation and does not want to have a mastectomy, an alternative is to have a mammogram and a breast MRI yearly. 7. Testing is fairly simple (blood test/swab from cheek) and they take about a week. For peace of mind, find a GP that you trust and share your concerns and literally blast him/her with questions so that

As we approach the summer, we should all have in mind the American Cancer Society’s ABCDE rule to evaluate skin changes. A stands for Asymmetry; B for Border irregularity (ragged, notched, or blurred edges); C is for Colour. We need to check if the pigmentation is uniform or perhaps shades of tan, brown, and black are present or dashes of red, white, and blue add to the mottled appearance. D is for lesion Diameter. Any growth of a mole should be of concern. E is for Elevation. A mole or lesion is raised above the surface and has an uneven surface.

RESOLUTION: For the next two weeks, let’s spend a few minutes pondering the way we treat our largest body organ – the skin. Do we pamper it or vandalise by spending too much time adulating the sun? Let’s get thrilled about the summer. Let’s fill every day with hard toil, with renewed passion, with love, with fun, with meaning. Talk to you in a couple weeks. Dr. De La Flor, licensed G.P. (38/06089) holds certificates in coaching, nutrition and medical exercise from U.C. Berkeley and the American Council on Exercise (ACE).

Prescriptions fall T

he Canary Islands’ expenditure on pharmaceutical drugs fell drastically in the first quarter of this year. In April alone there was a reduction of 4.11 per cent compared to last year, a saving of €1.5 million and a total of 137,155 prescriptions less in just one month. According to the statistics released recently, over the first four months of this year 12.7 million prescriptions were supplied, an overall reduction of 11.58 per cent over the same period in 2012, following a trend that has been in place for a while now.

Hi everyone

LETTERS & PASTIMES

y Kat By

I

hope you’re all well and happy. Every alternate Friday I personally am in seventh heaven. That’s when my best friend Michael, along with my other best friend Tony and of course myself, meet up to play cards, and have a meal together. We’ve done this for years now and love every minute of the day.

Michael is a Cordon Bleu chef and each fortnight titillates the taste buds with different cakes and pastries, as well as a superb three course meal. We’ve had custard slices, scones with clotted cream and strawberries, chocolate éclairs, ginger cake, carrot cake, golden syrup tart, the list is endless as it’s a different cake each fortnight, but last week we had light as a feather donut balls with both butterscotch and dark chocolate sauces. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven when he brings the ‘special treat’ out. But this week it’s my turn to cook, and it won’t be Cordon Bleu. But as I always say to the boys, “Think yourself lucky that you don’t get taken to hospital after you’ve eaten at mine. And if the meal isn’t quite good enough to eat,

Illegal car sales Dear Editor

I

’ve just come back from Alcampo in La Orotava and along the access road to the Commercial Centre were 11 cars lined up with for sale stickers in their windows. When are the authorities going to do something about these illegal salesmen. Parked where they were, it is not likely that they are 11 like-minded individuals who want to sell their vehicles, it is far more likely that someone is running an illegal business. A close friend had a small car show room not far away from this area employing four people. They were all taxed and insured – cash that went into the coffers

there’s always the chippie on the way home.”

I received an email from my friends in the UK about an orchestra of young people who love classical music, but live in an extremely poor part of Uruguay, and in fact the shanty town they live in is actually part of the landfill itself and the shanties are made up of rubbish people have thrown away. When I watched the video, I could not believe that such wonderful sounds could come from such refuse and rubbish as they were using. One boy plays the cello and it was made out of an oil can and wood that was thrown away. The pegs to tune the strings were made out of an old tool that was used to tenderize beef, and the other part of the top of the cello was first used to make gnocchi. The young man then proceeded to play his instrument which sounded exactly like a proper cello. It was the same for all the other instruments in this remarkable orchestra. But most remarkable of all were the young people who played, and the conductor who helped them all. They played with such love and such talent; it made me so sad to see their joy, ingenuity, and yet

at the same time, renewed my faith in Human Nature, that so much could come from so very little.

Steel from the World Trade Centre was melted down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship’s bow section. When it was poured into the moulds on Sept 9, 2003, “those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence,” recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. “It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.”

And following on with the inspirational theme, September 11 in America was a shocking and a terrible time which will never be forgotten, but throughout history, there is always a small little ‘something’ to lift the human spirit. The rebirth and memorial of the Twin Towers is so amazing and so wonderful and just shows what a nation can do under such horrendous circumstances. People who have been to see what America has done to the sacred site, have come away with a very spiritually and uplifting feeling. And if you look at this photograph, you will see a ship of great beauty. It is named USS New York and was built with 24,000 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Centre. It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will

Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the Trade Centre steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the, “hair on my neck stood up. It had a big meaning to it for all of us,” he said. “They knocked us down. They can’t keep us down. We’re going to be back.” The ship’s motto? ‘Never Forget’. A special mention to Dot Gardener for sending the photograph of the USS New York; until next time, take care of yourselves and especially of each other.

As far as supporting the public’s growing appreciation of canine companions goes, Gran Canaria is once again at the head of the field.

When the system works well.....

The Las Palmas council recently inaugurated the first section of beach specifically for dogs, in Bocabarranco, Jinámar. Normally, the beach is the last place that our four legged friends are allowed to go, and one of the areas they would most like to visit! However,

Recently, a concerned member

of the public saw three dogs struggling to stay afloat in a water tank near San Miguel. He called 112, who contacted the

Live Arico were called in to assist, and yes, the dogs were microchipped, their owner had reported them missing to the police and we were able to return the two dogs home safely. Micro

rabies vaccinations are legal requirements yet far too many people ignore this, so once again, in collaboration with Hospivet Sur Las Chafiras, we are offering micro-chipping and rabies vaccinations for just €25 - less than half the normal price. As we are subsidising this campaign it is only until June 12. For just €10 more you can also have your dog vaccinated with the Vanguard 7 vaccine, covering everything. Bargains galore can be found in our charity shops in Los Cristianos, Calle Reverón, between 10am and 4pm daily and Siobhan’s Aladin’s Cave in San Eugenio, opposite Hotel La Nina. Both shops are closed Sundays. Find us on Facebook and twitter or at: www.livearico.org

the council had the bright idea of opening an area which is underused by the public due to the high waves and winds that are found there. A total of 6,000 m2 has been set aside for dogs and their friends in an area which is regularly washed by the tides, hopefully meaning that it should naturally remain hygienic. The city of Las Palmas already has six dog parks where everyone can enjoy their walks together.

A possible dog fighting set up was recently broken up by police in La Mantecas, Tenerife. After complaints were filed by residents of the area police and workers from the local dog refuge were called to a farm in the area where they found seven dogs in very poor condition. Kept in an unhygienic and filthy shed the dogs, all of which were of breeds that are classed as possibly dangerous, were not only in a sorry state, but were apparently exceptionally aggressive. Surrounded by refuse and junk, the dogs had been kept in a tiny area for a considerable amount of time. It is thought that the owner had deliberately invoked aggressiveness in the canines so they could be used in fights. Unfortunately, due to their ferociousness the police had to use tranquiliser darts on the dogs before they could be taken away to a refuge.

50th anniversary

Porsche In Lanzarote

The Porsche film crew could recently be seen racing around Lanzarote as they made a promotional video to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company’s iconic 911 which will soon be released in turbo and turbo ‘S’ models.

H

owever, the anniversary was not the only commemoration in May as Dr. Wolfgang Porsche himself also celebrated his 70th birthday. Born in Stuttgart in 1943, Dr. Wolfgang is the youngest son of Dorothea and Ferry Porsche, the founder of the Porsche sports car brand.

interestingly, he operates an Alpine organic farm with around 200 dairy cows. The Porsche 911 also recently hit the news as it managed to come in at both first and second place in the London to Lisboa Reliability Trial & Classic Car Tour. The 3840 km route across France, Spain and Portugal involves nine days of tough classic rallying through sun, rain, and even snow this year. It was two teams from the UK that won the rally. Father and son Michael and Simon Baker, from Bolton, took top place in a 1978 Porsche 911 SC, closely followed by Chas Colton, from Cheshire, and Guy Woodcock, from North Wales, in their 1965 Porsche 911 2.0 SWB. Organized by HERO, the Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation, the event is the second qualifying round of the 2013 HERO Cup, in association with EFG International. See: www.heroevents.eu.

His grandfather, Ferdinand Porsche, was the brilliant automotive design engineer who shaped the history of the car. However, his position in the company has never just been one of inheritance. After leaving school he qualified as a metalworker before obtaining his degree in Business Administration from the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, and later gaining his doctorate in International Business. Although still very active in the company, he alternates between the city of Salzburg and his country estate where, Motoring in Brief >>

Longbridge Mini

Last one for sale A salvaged Mini Clubman that lay in the tunnels under the Longbridge factory for 30 years, making it the last Mini to leave the famous site, is being auctioned at the Silverstone Classic Sale. The iconic car, which was used to travel around the sprawling plant, was secretly dumped by workers in the late 1970s after suffering some damage. However, photos of the famous ‘lost’ Mini emerged and, after much searching, it was saved by a former factory worker who got permission to remove it in

“This has got to be one of the most fascinating cars we’ve ever secured for auction.

However, now that it’s been recovered we’re absolutely thrilled to offer it for auction.” However, having been abandoned for many decades, suffering wounds along the way and without any sunlight, this Mini Clubman 1275 GT needs much love and attention to return it to its former glory!

III Marcha 70 Canarias The date for one of the newest and most popular classic bike rallies was recently announced. The III Marcha 70 Canarias, which will take place over the weekend of June 22 and 23, will gather together surprisingly large numbers of Honda bikes from the 1970s as well as other models. This year the event will take place in Gran Canaria, visiting some of the most beautiful corners of the island. The first day the run visits the south, from El Tablero through Monte León, Maspalomas, Arteara, Fataga and Temisas, to end in Lomo Magullo. The second day starts in Artenara and will cover the north of the island, both runs making the most of scenic coastal areas as well as impressive mountain roads.

Four famous British track day supercars from Ariel, BAC, Caterham and Radical will be driven to the absolute limit as they do battle to set a new lap record at the 2013 Cholmondeley Pageant of Power on June 14, 15 and 16. Though a wide range of supercars and classic and modern race cars will also take to the Pageant circuit for timed runs, it is the track-day specials that are deemed most likely to break the existing record. Each of the track day cars will undertake six potentially record breaking runs on the slightly less than two kilometre, twisty, undulating Pageant circuit during the three day event. The current course record, set last year by Caterham’s 330bhp SP/300.R, currently stands at 61.89 seconds.

Volkswagen

Devoted Volkswagen Beetle fans can now treat themselves to the

legendary GSR model, some 40 years after the original made its debut on the European market. Unveiled earlier this year at the Chicago Auto Show, only 3,500 of them will be made worldwide. Just like the GSR from days gone by, the body of the new version is yellow and black but there are, of course, several differences: the new GSR’s 2.0-litre turbocharged 210 PS engine needs just 7.3 seconds to

accelerate to 100 km, has a top speed of 228 km and 280 Nm of torque from 1,700 rpm to 5,200 rpm, giving drivers a little more too play with than its predecessor.

Having recovered from the injury that kept him out of action for seven months, the former world number one picked up his sixth tour title of 2013 in Rome,

inflicting a humiliating 6-1 6-3 defeat on Roger Federer to win the Italian crown for a record seventh time. There were fears that the Majorcan might never regain top form after his succession of injuries in recent years and he had even been overtaken by compatriot David Ferrer in the ATP rankings for a while. However, he is clearly back in business and is set to challenge Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic for the top two places in the ATP rankings.

CD Marino

End sprint too late L

os Cristianos side Marino fulfilled coach José Juan Almeida’s promise that his players would compete to the very end, even though they were mathematically relegated to Division 3 several weeks ago. Results since the turn of the year were very impressive and had they come earlier in the season would no doubt have seen Marino survive the first year in Division 2B. Almeida admitted on the eve of the final game

against Guijuelo, which his side won 2-0 (see match report on opposite page), that he would have liked, “an extra month or so of fixtures” to continue the end of season form and climb clear of relegation. Club chairman Pepe Barrios has already announced he is standing down, citing the lack of support from local sponsors and Arona town hall as the main reasons for his departure. However, while the paltry backing has certainly

UD Las Palmas

Signing gaffe of the year?

T

he various slip-ups by 2nd Division Las Palmas of late in the side’s bid to stay in the promotion play-off spots have prompted questions about team selection, especially the absence of the forward who was supposed to resolve the team’s goal-scoring problems. Andy Pando was signed in the transfer window in January, allegedly at the specific request of manager Sergio Lobera, who was impressed with the Peruvian’s haul of 27 goals last season for Real Garcilaso in his home country. However, his appearances for Las Palmas have been few and far between, totalling a mere one hundred minutes or so in the months since his arrival. The decision not to use him either in the starting line-up or as a substitute has raised many eyebrows, especially as Las Palmas have struggled badly in recent weeks and failed to find the net in three of six games up to mid-May.

influenced matters, there is no denying that Marino has simply not caught the attention of football fans in the south of the island. While neighbours Tenerife were attracting crowds of

9,000 and above to home games in Santa Cruz, gates at Marino barely reached 200, reflecting the serious lack of a fan base to compete in the higher divisions.

Grand Slam dream

W

hile all eyes may be on Carla Suárez as the top woman tennis player from the Canaries, a name to perhaps watch out for in the coming years is Tenerife starlet Arabela Fernández, who is slowly but surely making a name for herself on the circuit. The Puerto de la Cruz player, now aged 22, won two International Tennis Federation tournaments in Egypt last month, each with prize money of $10,000, and was runner-up in a third. The results have pushed her up the world rankings and she is confident of making a top 300 place in the near future, despite having to cope with major financial hurdles to compete on the circuit in both singles and doubles. Arabela currently plays for French club CT Gemenos to earn at least a little money to support herself as she continues her bid to earn enough ranking points to enable her to play in qualifying rounds of Grand Slam events.

Salamanca, they had guaranteed their position in the league, but nevertheless Marino deserved their win. It’s a shame for the side to be going down as they really have shown what they are actually capable of as out of the last 11 games they have lost only two, but it was all too late and now the team’s immediate future lies in the balance as the club looks for someone else to take the reins after the recent departure of Pepe Barrios.

played a fantastic 25 yard freekick by Luismi Loro put Tenerife ahead to send the home fans into raptures. From that moment on the best version of this Tenerife side was seen, creative in attack and without complications in defence. Cristo Martin, Chechu and Loro were in charge of organising the home team’s attacks, although a well organised Catalan side thwarted any real danger for the remainder of the half. After the break the blanquiazules pushed their game plan into overdrive with the clear idea of sentencing the tie. In the 54th minute left back Raul Llorente broke through from the middle of the park, cleverly dribbled around a defender and found the net with a low drive. It was a tremendous goal and the Heliodoro exploded into a sea of blue and white scarves. Hospitalet were unbeaten since early January but they were being overrun in every department, despite that they still attempted to keep their shape and perhaps sneak an away goal. Popular local player Suso entered the pitch to give even more power to the Tenerife attack during the last

20 minutes. David Medina had replaced the excellent Alberto on 75 minutes and five minutes later he scored his first goal for seven and half years. The defending type midfielder has been in and out of the side this season but he wrote his name into CD Tenerife folklore with a superb curled shot from the edge of the box. At 3-0 the buzz around the stadium was fantastic, it practically meant that Tenerife had a foot and a half in the 2nd division. As the clock edged towards injury time and against all odds Hospitalet pulled a goal back with practically their first shot on goal. The away goal put a slight dampener on the celebrations but to take a 3-1 win to Barcelona next week is still a very good result. Away goals count double in this competition so a 2-0 win will be enough for Hospitalet but after this fine blanquiazul performance you would hope that they will do the business next Sunday morning at 11am. The game will be televised live on TV Canaria and over 1,000 Tenerife fans will accompany the team. If they can win this tie they will gain direct promotion to the 2nd division.

T

he basketball season is over at CB Canarias, which returned to the elite ACB basketball league after an absence of 20 years last summer to rub shoulders with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona and give Tenerife a place back in the big time. Considered the toughest league in Europe and second best in the world, the ACB attracts some of the biggest names in the game outside the NBA. Many predicted that the La Laguna club would struggle badly to survive its rigours, particularly after a losing opening streak that brought no wins from the first six games in October and November. However, a superlative second half of the season saw the La Laguna club finish an impressive 10th of 18 teams and secure safety from relegation with several weeks to spare. The season has been a roller coaster for veteran Canarias chairman Félix Hernández, who had to scramble frantically to gather financial support to enable the club take up the ACB place.

We were tipped along with Valladolid to go down and it looked on the cards when we were 0-6 in November. Clearly, survival has been our most important achievement. Another positive has been the wonderful welcome received from the ACB league. Indeed, we have received glowing public praise from them for the way we run the club. Our budget was one of the smallest in the league but we have administered it very well. The worst thing about the season was not managing to find a major sponsor, which meant we had to get by on very little money.

IC: What are the prospects for next season as regards sponsorship? FH: We are currently looking at two very interesting options but I cannot give details just yet. I think companies are now realising just how much exposure they can earn by being associated with us in such a big league, which draws massive media coverage. When we made the sporting headlines after beating runaway leaders Real Madrid in their stadium in March people really sat up and took notice and I suspect that more than one potential sponsor would have been kicking themselves at the missed opportunity. IC: Now the season is over, and successfully so, presumably you can relax a little over the summer as chairman and bask in the glory. FH: I wish! We now have

to turn the club into a private company, which is compulsory under the rules of the ACB league and under Spanish legislation governing top-flight sports clubs. We are legally obliged to raise around €2 million in share capital by the end of July to convert to what is known as an S.A.D. company. I am confident that we will, but until we have cleared that formal hurdle our hands are tied on other planning decisions. If I had a magic wand to make just one thing come true, it would be to sell all 34,000 shares at €60 each and finish the S.A.D. process quickly. Only then will I relax fully and perhaps take a holiday for the first time in four years. IC: Do you think everyone in Tenerife realises the full importance of having a team in the ACB? FH: I genuinely think they do. We already attract crowds of 4,000 for home games but we also need to convince the pri-

IC: As chairman you have been praised for keeping faith in head coach Alejandro Martínez through the bad times at the beginning of the season. Were you under pressure to make changes? FH: Not at all and I don’t believe in getting rid of a coach half way through the year. In any case, Alejandro has guided us from the junior ranks right up to the summit of Spanish basketball and is a crucial cog in the machinery of this club, having been here for nearly a decade. Our first decision as a Board when we were promoted was to renew his contract, but not just for one year. Although we knew we might struggle, we offered him a two-year deal as a vote of confidence. If he has been here for so long, there must be a reason. I fully understand if bigger clubs come asking about him. His achievements here have made him a sought-after coach. Even if he does go in the future, I am happy that Canarias has been a springboard to something better.

IC: Some players were unhappy last year that they were only contacted very late to sign. Surely there is no danger of a repeat this time, now that a second year in the ACB is guaranteed. FH: Last summer we did not know until the end of July, three months after winning promotion, if we would be able to take up our place in the ACB and this obviously conditioned our planning. This year we may need to wait until we clear the company creation hurdle, again at the end of July, although we are already talking to the agents of several key players. We will have a 15 per cent smaller budget due to the crisis but I don’t think we will have a problem keeping or finding good players. We have a reputation of honouring contracts, which is not always the case in professional basketball. The players respect us for that and know they will be paid on time or very nearly on time. When one of our current team left his previous club last summer, he was still owed seven months wages! I don’t think the ACB should allow clubs to field a side the following season if they have not paid their players’ wages for the last one. The players’ union feels the same. Don’t miss this space during the summer to find out who stays and goes at Canarias, which we wish well for the coming season.
