Goodbye Godfather to the

"Nick Gibbs

Frankie Knuckles, known as the “Godfather of House’’ has died at age 59. “It is difficult to imagine Ibiza without house music, and difficult to imagine house music without Frankie Knuckles.” A huge part of the Ibizan success and economy has been built on electronic dance music and Frankie Knuckles is one of the

key pioneers that made it all happen. Knuckles played for the last time at London's Ministry of Sound Saturday. His death is widely reported as being due to a complication arising from type 2 diabetes—but we have seen no official confirmation of the cause. The DJ who is widely credited as one of the founding fathers of electronic dance music, played several times in Ibiza last year including sets at the Ushuaia Tower and Space. Born in the Bronx, Frankie War-

ren Knuckles Jr learned his craft in New York City, where he was mentored by club DJ Larry Levan. His musical innovation developed when he moved to Chicago in the late 70´s where he became resident DJ at the Warehouse Club (from where the term ´house´ music is derived). Disco was on the decline and he pioneered a style of extending soul and R&B records by adding drum machine loops. Knuckles continued to DJ at the Warehouse until 1982, when he opened his own club in Chicago,

Ibiza News “God has a place on the dance floor. We wouldn’t have all the things we have if it wasn’t for God. We wouldn’t have the one thing that keeps us sane — music. It’s the one thing that calms people down. Even when they’re hopping up and down in a frenzy on the dance floor, it still has their spirits calm because they’re concentrating on having a good time, loving the music, as opposed to thinking about something negative. I think dancing is one of the best things anyone can do for themselves. And it doesn’t cost anything.’’ Frankie Knuckles, January 18 1955, to March 31 2014 The Power Plant. As House lit up the dance floors of Europe, Knuckles also became a regular on the growing international club scene, playing regularly in London and Ibiza. During the nineties he was in huge demand as a remixer, working on tracks for Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Depeche Mode and Whitney Houston. Talking about his career to the Chicago Tribune Knuckles said “I would program different break beats and use them as segues between songs and additional beats, I had my own little piece of heaven right there. The people that used to hang out at The Warehouse coined the phrase 'House Music', at the time I was the only DJ in the city playing a sound that they heard nowhere else. When dance parties and regional DJs began popping up on the South Side of the city, to attract the same kind of audience that I had at The Warehouse.... they would advertise that they played 'House Music'." Tributes have been made by many eminent industry figures. Pete Tong posted on Twitter "RIP gentleman genius, groundbreaker, inspiration. Blessed to have worked with you." Ibiza music industry entrepreneur, and man behind the International Music Summit, Danny Whittle said on his facebook feed “My heart goes out to Judy, David, Hector and all the def mix family. RIP Frankie Knuckles you were a musical master and a true gentleman. You will be missed by many” One of the DJ´s closest relationships was with David Morales who said “"I am devastated to write that my dear friend Frankie Knuckles has passed away today. Can't write anymore than this at the moment. I'm sorry." It is difficult to imagine Ibiza without house music, and difficult to imagine house music without Frankie Knuckles.

Ex GPS Boss Handed 7 Years All Inclusive. The founder and ex Managing Director of the GPS hotel chain, Fernando Ferré Cardó, was condemned on Monday to 7 years prison and an 11 million € fine plus another 11 million € for civil liability. The 68 year old businessman was found guilty of tax evasion and other fraudulent activities concerning payments to the state, as well as not respecting the statutory rights of the workers his hotel chain employed. The prison sentence imposed was 74 years short of that asked for by the prosecution who had also asked for an 18 million € fine. Josep Oller, the fiscal adviser of Fernando Ferré, received a 14 month prison sentence and another 11 million € fine. As the convicted men are thought to be insolvent at this moment in time, it appears that the GPS Hotel Group will have to pay the 11 million € civil liability penalty. Roundabout for Black spot Junction. The Balearic Government announced this week projects to make the island's roads safer. Firstly, a roundabout is to be built to replace the junction where vehicles turn towards the airport on the Sant Josep to Ibiza Town road. Also there will be repair work made to the Sant Josep to Ibiza Town road to rectify failings which occurred when the road was improved 8 years ago. For the sports and educational complexes (Blanca Dona) located on the San Antonio to Ibiza road on outskirts of Ibiza Town, the good news for parents is that their children will now be safer. An elevated walkway will be built so that the children can cross the busy dual carriageway where the bus from San Antonio stops, just before the outer ring road roundabout, rather than use the existing pedestrian crossing.

Local Girl's Viral Video . Containing phrases such as “you look after your rosaries and I'll look after my ovaries”, local college student, Astrid Friederichs, has made a 2 1/2 minute feminist video which has gone “viral” on social media networks. The video received over 800 viewings on the first day it was launched on You Tube and is being watched more and more. In saying that she loves the world of video and sound creation, Astrid's video stands for the equality of the sexes. Celebrities Against Mine. Led by ex World Motorcycling Champion Angel Nieto and including other well known business figures, a group of residents who claim to be adversely affected by the noise and working at the Ses Planes quarry in the Jesus area of the island have formed a protest lobby. They have reports from experts supporting their claims that the quarry is too noisy and too close to their homes. It appears that the quarry is not carrying out the required infill and is possibly extracting materials where it does not have the correct permits - such as invading protected forest areas. The residents are complaining that the quarry, which has existed for more than 30 years devalues what could be a valuable ecological area and could support the development of quality tourism rather than a mine! The lorries which service the quarry are also annoying everyone living in the area. Oil Companies Fight Back. The Oil companies who wish to explore for gas and oil in the coastal waters around the island, are fighting back. With the results of a economic study and the prestigious “Deloitte” company in hand, they claim that up to 260,000 jobs could be created if the project goes ahead. There will be a 44.000 million increase in Gross Domestic Product in the year when the oil extraction is at its highest. They expect to produce on average 2.000 million barrels of petrol and 2.500 billion cubic metres of gas. Exports and interchanges in hydrocarbons will over a 15 year period, improve our trade figures by 40,000 million €.

ISes Feixes Natural Marsh Area Protected. The PP Conservative Consell Island Government announced major protection measures for the Ses Feixes Natural Marsh Area which stretch inland from the Talamanca beach. From now on the protected area will cover 80 hectares and there will be increased restrictions stopping building. However, it is thought that the land owners will be given permission if they apply to build rural hotels as long as the plot they own is a minimum of 15,000m2. Presumably this will be an incentive for the land owners in the Ses Feixes protected area to care for their property and keep it as attractive traditional farm land. It has to be remembered that this area was traditionally the “market garden” of Ibiza Town. The drainage channels dating from the middle ages will be restored and recycled water from the new sewage plant in Ibiza Town will be used to try to return the area to the levels of natural humidity it had centuries ago. Over time, bird watching facilities will be installed as will an interpretation centre and an investigation centre. Added to the protection of the Ses Feixes marshes, there will also be more protection for the seabed of the bay of Talamanca and in particular, the sea eel grass (posidonia) reserves. Later in the week it was also announced that the historic military installations, built by Franco at the Sa Caleta cove, will be protected and restored as reported below. Interpretation Centre to be created at Sa Caleta

"Claire B The Consell of Ibiza has announced plans to start work on transforming the old military installation built during the civil war at Sa Caleta after the summer. With a budget of

San An Port Privatisation. Jaime Martínez, Tourist Minister for the Balearic Government, stated last week that craft of less than 7.5m will not pay any more

600,000€ work will transform some of the buildings into an interpretation centre for the nearby archaeological site, where the Phoenician’s settled in Ibiza in the 7th century. Currently the buildings scattered around the site are abandoned, half derelict and covered in graffiti. There are about three former gun emplacements all connected by underground, unlit tunnels, which at the moment you can walk through. I was out there walking last Friday, and the currently excavated site of Sa Caleta is locked up behind a high metal fence, with just a couple of display boards giving you information. You can’t walk into the site or get a feel for what you are looking at, so any improvement and access to this important site will make a lot of difference. The site itself is in a beautiful location next to the sea, with views looking back towards Es Codalar, Salinas and Cap des Falco to the south and towards the cliffs at Sa Caleta beach and Punta Jondal. An excellent location to attract visitors interested to see and learn about Ibiza’s first modern settlement, before the site was abandoned for Ibiza Town. Completion of refurbishing the buildings has been estimated at 12 months, so the centre should be open sometime in 2015.

Comment: Chris Langley

Be wary of announcements of interpretation centres at natural reserves in Ibiza. The Politicians always appear to want to build one at a beautiful protected natural site but then what? The interpretation centre at the Ses Salinas Natural reserve has been finished for ages but still has to be opened to the public. Reportedly all it needs is a clean, a quick touch of paint and it could be open. What a waste of tax payers money for what could be an interesting visit, especially as it is located in an historic church building.

port how it is at present, Martinez said that a privatised port would be better maintained and offer more comprehensive service to users. He was referring to such things as the maintenance of vessels, dry dock services and the provision of water and lighting to boats in port. Also mentioned were Wi-Fi, dedicated information apps for services offered by the port, as well as onboard services, reservations and catering services etc. Martinez inferred that the image of our ports is the image we portray of our nautical tourist capabilities and that there was much at stake if we got it wrong! Health Minister claims “it is normal for things to go wrong.” The health minister for the Balearic Government, Martí Sansaloni, stated that the tax payer is already paying a canon of 645,000€ a month to the firm that has the concession to construct and administer the hospital even though it won't be open for use by the public until June. The hospital was reportedly handed over to the authorities on the 31st October 2013 as partially finished. It was agreed to start paying the monthly canon from that date, so that this money could cover some structural changes and economic problems that the administration had to sort out before the hospital could open for public use. Apparently, Martí Sansaloni claimed it was normal that things went wrong during the completion of a big project like the new hospital for Ibiza, so the payments were justified. Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Activities Promoted. The tourist authorities announced that last week they attended a specialised tourist trade fare in Paris dedicated to walking, hiking and other outdoor activities. Over 60,000 visitors attended the 3 day event. It was also announced that there will be tourist promotion for the islands carried out over the next few weeks in Poland and Croatia because these are

growing markets for Ibiza and Formentera. For example, last year Polish visitors to Ibiza increased by over 8% reaching an important total of 73,800.

was an old acquaintance of the woman and had planned to flee the island once he had extorted the money from her.

More Books, More Hours

As reported to the newspaper by a reader on the scene in our Postbag last week, a fall down a difficult to access embankment resulted in a complicated rescue by the emergency services. The mum fell down a 5 metre high embankment as she was cycling with her toddler behind her. The incident happened on a narrow stretch of dirt track along the coast near Santa Eulalia. The alarm was raised by the woman's husband who was following behind. Initially a nearby hotel worker used a ladder to reach the injured woman but could only help the slightly injured toddler up to the top of the embankment. The emergency services arrived and by employing ingenuity, strapped the woman to the stretcher and used the ladder as a slide as well as a hoist to lift the woman to a waiting ambulance.

Complicated Rescue Marking International Children's Book Day on April 2nd, the municipal library in Ibiza Town have no less than 800 new children's books on the shelves to tempt tots away from their gadgets. The library will be open longer hours too—from Monday to Thursday 8.30am to 9pm. Illegal Scrap Yard. The police have taken just over 2 weeks to dismantle an illegal scrap yard in the San Antonio area of the island. The site in the country side was full of partially dismantled vehicles and a person reported to be an illegal immigrant was working on the cars. The owner of the site, a 54 year old Spanish man, apparently tried to run off when police discovered a stolen vehicle amongst those at the site. Seemingly, during the process of scrapping the vehicles, the good parts were resold, but tyres and cables were burnt causing toxic residue which is against environmental laws. Girl Found after 3 Days. We are pleased to report that the 13 year old girl from Ibiza who was reported missing Saturday afternoon has been found safe and sound. She was missing for 3 days promoting a Police search. Debt Or Dead! A woman and her daughter residing in Santa Eulalia, received a death threat in February by e mail stating she had to repay a 20,000€ loan, taken out 2 years before, in the next 72 hours or else! After the initial email, the victim also received numerous anonymous threatening letters by post. The victim reported the email to the police thinking that it had come from a “hit man”. Extensive police investigations resulted in the subsequent arrest for extortion of a 45 yr old Spanish resident on the island, who

Policeman Confesses 2.7million€ Robbery


Rafael Rodriguez is a National Police Officer who allegedly stole over 2,76 million € from a shelf in a cupboard on the second floor of the Matutes company's offices in Ibiza Town last October. Rafael apparently confessed to an investigating officer whilst being interviewed in prison on the mainland. The judge in the case has deemed the recordings of this interview were admissible as evidence. The recordings apparently implicated another Police officer in the crime. The second officer, Jose Joaquin Fernandez, is presently on bail as an accessory and the tapes imply that he played a far more integral part to the robbery than was first thought. His lawyers were unsuccessful in getting the recordings dismissed by the judge after claiming that the recording had been made illicitly without a defence lawyer present. Though it appears that the recorded confession allowed the

police to retrieve 1,7 million € of the cash stolen from the Matutes company, it did cause a stir for the victims of the robbery. This was because Rafael claimed that the stolen money could have been “black” (undeclared) money. The Matutes company immediately categorically denied these claims from someone they described as being “a confessed criminal”. They produced expert evidence purporting that all the stolen money was totally legal and also started civil legal proceedings for libel and damages against Rafael over the claims he made in the recording. Police are still searching for the missing “million” which was supposedly stashed in an abandoned car in the San Juan area of the island. So all you walkers out there, this could be your lucky day if you start to check abandoned cars on your walks!!! Hollywood Style Drug Bust at Sea Last February an Italian registered fast launch with a Dutch flag refuelled in Ibiza on its way to Marina Smir in Morocco. The boat was being tracked by a secretly installed GPS which had been placed on the boat by the Italian law enforcement authorities when it left port in Civitavecchia, Italy. They warned the security forces in Ibiza to be on alert when the boat refuelled but let it travel on to Morocco where the boat picked up a 1,100kilo cargo of hashish and departed again heading for Italy. Spanish Police gave chase at sea as the boat entered the Straits of Gibraltar. They eventually apprehended the skipper, confiscating the drugs and 3000€ in cash. Simultaneously there were arrests of members of the same gang in Italy and one member who was in the port of Smir in Morocco as part of the smuggling operation.

in Mallorca and Menorca, bus users should receive a better service. They will eventually be able to use a Google app called “Google transit” to plan journeys and see schedules etc. For the authorities, it finally means that they will know exactly how many people actually use each of the bus services available to the public throughout the island and what level and quality of service is being provided. Jaywalker Badly Injured A man was badly injured when he jumped over a crash barrier on the Avenida Paz in Ibiza Town in an attempt to cross the busy road. Reports suggest he was hit by an oncoming car as he jumped into the road, giving the driver no time to take avoiding action. Aside from the serious injuries to the man, the male driver of the car was also said to be badly shaken and the car had to be towed away. Compensation For Fall. After 7 years disputing the evidence, an Italian woman has finally won her case for 41,776€ as compensation from Santa Eulalia Town Council. Though disputing their liability, the courts ordered that the Town Hall compensates the woman for a fall in Santa Gertrudis where she tripped over iron bars protruding from the public pavement. There were apparently no warning signs and the woman suffered a fractured right humeral bone in her head. New Cemetery In San Antonio. With a 400,000€ budget, work will soon start on preparing the disused Sa Pedera quarry in the Can Coix area of San Antonio so that it can be transformed into the new cemetery for the town. Walking and wine tasting

Better Bus The transport authorities in Ibiza will soon have a better way of knowing how the public transport system is used throughout Ibiza. By installing tried technologies at a reduced cost of only 70,000€ which are already in use

This week Walking Ibiza is doing two special walks on Friday 4 and Saturday April 5. They start in San Mateo and will also include some wine tasting in one of the local vineyards. For details see or Walking Ibiza on Facebook.

Ibiza Rocks in San Antonio

"Claire B Ibiza Rocks has announced some of the acts that will be appearing at The Ibiza Rocks Hotel in San Antonio this summer. Ibiza Rocks is a great outdoor venue for seeing live bands: it’s big enough for there to be a vibrant live atmosphere, but small enough to be able a good view of the performers.

Ibizans: Charlie Chester & Ibizan: A series of interviews with some of the island’s prominent Artistic, Business and Public figures where we’ll be asking about their private and professional Ibiza life. Charlie Chester and Jo Mills must be amongst the best known expat faces in Ibiza. The Posh and Becks of decks, the Peters and Lee of the party, DJ Jo and Essential Ibiza founder Charlie sat down to talk in Santa Gertrudis—well where else? We are Ibizan ...

Charlie, your current work. CC: Essential Ibiza is a very busy online portal for everything Ibiza. From booking club tickets, to VIP to accommodation and news stories—it is as much a digital

covering the DC10 opening party and people are in England or Australia or wherever, they want to read about it the next day.


you have a reputation for getting reports out first. How do you feel when you see other similar websites releasing the same information a few hours later? CC: We take it as a compliment. One of the reasons we get so much traffic is that we are quick getting it out there. We had 1.7 million hits last year, we expect to hit 3 million this year. For example lat year Carl Cox at DC10 we published 5 hours after the last people walked out of the door—that one got us 4,000 likes in 24 hours.

Sometimes Charlie and I don't go out together—one baby-sits while the other is out late, it helps if you're not both hopeless the following day. I'm not doing as many night time gigs anyway, Ocean Beach Club is perfect during the day.

"NG: What was your journey

to Ibiza? JM: I used to come here on holiday in the early 90´s. I first came in 1987. I hated it and went home early. We were in San Antonio on a bucket shop holiday, we got burgled and I swore never to come back. Then we came back as a couple, when was it Charlie?: CC: 1999.

Ibiza Markets ...

Hippy Market, Es Canar

"Nick Gibbs Established in 1973 the Punta Arabi Hippy Market attracts thousands of visitors from April to October. Set in beautiful grounds it has become a melting pot of different cultures. Every Wednesday over 500 craftsmen and artists offer a variety creations: crafts, fashion, jewellery, natural cosmetics and original items brought from around the world. All surrounded by performances from musicians, artists and living statues, creating the most unique and unforgettable charm. Get yourself a henna tattoo or a massage, dress up like an original hippie or just relax in the gastronomic areas where

you can enjoy a variety of cuisines including their renowned paella. There is a long waiting list to get a permanent stall at the Hippy Market, in the meantime you could apply for daily stall in a special area called "La Chumbera". Normally there is always space in that area but in the high season (June, July and August) preference is given to those who have had stalls in the previous months. The market runs every Wednesday from 2nd of April to the 29th of October 2014. To apply for a stall you need to download a form from their website and return it with photographs of your products. Â

Fancy the idea of running your own stall? Is the world finally ready for your driftwood lamps? Need to clear out your wardrobe? Or perhaps you just miss having a stroll round the Brit Boot Sales? Ibiza has a market to suit all tastes. Here we show you what, where, when, and how to get a pitch. San Jordi Flea Market

"Claire B The outdoor flea market (rastrillo) at the Hipódromo in Sant Jordi is held every Saturday morning, all year round. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning - looking for a bargain or just meeting up with friends and people watching. Alternatively, it’s the ideal place to sell some unwanted items and make a bit of cash. In the height of summer there are more stalls catering for tourists, but out of season you’ll see lots bric-a-brac and second-hand items. It’s also the place where people leaving the island will sell off any worldly goods they can’t take with them. You’re likely to find everything from the kitchen sink (literally), to children and adults’ clothes, jewellery, household items, plants, books, DVDs, records, electrical appliances, furniture and much more. For a few

euros you can easily brighten up your sparsely decorated rented apartment, find that item you desperately need in your life or boost the contents of your wardrobe. If you like market browsing, bargain hunting or a bit of haggling, you’ll love it. And in true Ibizan fashion, there are usually some drummers and musician’s providing aural entertainment. It’s a big market and can take at

least an hour to get round all the stalls, but if you need a break there’s a bar inside, a kiosk selling hot dogs and sandwiches, and ample toilet facilities. There’s also a bouncy castle to keep children entertained. Be warned that there’s no shade on hot days and it can be dusty if it’s windy. To reserve a stall in the market you need to go along on the Friday afternoon before from 15.30, although people tend to start queuing for pitches from about 13.30, as they can run out. Also be prepared to wait for a couple of hours or more. Alternatively you can chance your luck beforehand on

Every Saturday, from 10a.m. until 8p.m., a multitude of artisans come together at las Dalias filling the gardens with colours, exotic smells, and fantasy. The market was born on Valentines day, 1985. Since then, the number of stalls has grown to 200. A Saturday in August there can be up to 20.000 visitors. Apart from clothes, jewellery, crafts, musical instruments, paintings, books, and antiques, it is also possible to relax with a massage or get a tarot reading. The market also extends itself to the interior room, the Sky Lounge, and to the new olive tree area. Las Dalias also has a restaurant, a tapas bar, a natural juices point, There are lots more markets in the summer months, but we've got most of the regular /current ones here.

"Nick Gibbs Newly opened in summer 2013, the Gorila market occupies a huge site on the main tourist street in Cala De Bou. During summer months the market opens several days a week well into the night with stalls offering artisan goods, specialist food and drink, and all amid a lively atmosphere with live music, fire-eaters and many other entertainers. The site has several bars plus bouncy castles and ride ons for the children. This year they will be adding a petting zoo to the market, and we've heard pony and trap rides may also be introduced. In the winter the Gorila market, dominated by it's huge namesake, opens Sundays with a combination of local car-booter 2nd hand stalls, some new goods, and artisans selling their crafts—including our own occasional poet Sheila with her hand knit bespoke bears. The main bar is open and for a change from the Sunday Roast they offer a cooked to order Bar-B-Que at a tempting 10€ for a mixed grill platter. Salads etc also available. Live music is provided from 12 to 2pm by Chris Langley on the guitar—he'll even play requests if you ask him nicely. Being relatively new on the scene the market is building numbers and so currently offers stalls free of charge as an added incentive to traders and car-booters alike. Anybody wanting a pitch can just turn up at 9am—no need to queue and register the day before—and people start packing up around 3pm. Over Easter the Gorila market will be open Good Friday, Saturday and Sunday with some extra surprises in store. For more info contact Pepe on 629 722 720.

Postbag Tony Copping It is with great sadness we have to report on the death of a dear friend and fellow walker Tony Copping who passed away on Wednesday 23rd March at Hayward's Heath Hospital after a short illness. Tony’s great love was cricket and he was one of the founding members of Ibiza Cricket Club and also the captain of the team for many years. On his retirement from the game he joined his wife Brenda in the Wednesday Walking Group where he became a much loved member. He was always a pleasure to walk with and a gentleman in the fullest sense of the word. We missed them both when they returned to their bungalow near Eastbourne one year ago but kept in close contact with them so it was a great shock to hear the sad news. From all the Wednesday Walkers we send our deepest condolences to Brenda. Anthony "Tony" 1943 - 2014


For those of you who did not know, it is my sad duty, once again, to report the passing of yet another true Ibiza gentleman, Tony Copping, in England last week. Tony, "Coppo" to his close friends, was born during World War 2 in Exeter and moved to the South East of England where he spent a lot of his working life in Sales and Marketing, starting off as a sales executive, and becoming Sales Director and eventually Managing Director. Being a true Devonian he was heavily in to his sports, including rugby, football, cricket and golf, the first two as a spectator, being an Exeter Chiefs and Tottenham supporter and as a player in the latter two. In fact it was after a game of cricket at Willingdon in 1975, where he was initially a player, then captain, that he was fortunate enough to meet his wife Brenda, by chance,

in the "British Queen" pub and they were married in Eastbourne in 1978. At the relatively young age of 48, Tony and Brenda upped and moved sticks to Ibiza in 1991 and he set up his own business in property management and villa and garden maintenance. Being an experienced cricket "vet" by this time, he played in his first cricket match on the day after they arrived on the island and obviously got his priorities right, joining Ibiza CC where he immediately proved a success, becoming captain in the mid-'90's. He retired from the game around 2005 but certainly left his mark not only on the Club, but also on a number of us younger players, all of whom had the privilege of playing under him, as he was always ready to offer advice and coaching on the finer points of the game. Whilst here he was also able to take up his other sporting love, golf, and spent a lot of his time at Roca Llisa, and, indeed, used to boast of his exploits on this demanding course. In reply we always used to liken his stories to the anglers tales of the size of "the one that got away!" Although not a regular churchgoer, unlike Brenda, Tony supported the Anglican church here and was always involved in helping and assisting in fund raising when required, and supported many causes on the island, such as The Cancer Fund and Age Concern and attended many charity dinners and events. Due to his failing health, and desire to return to England, Brenda and Tony returned to Eastbourne in the latter part of the last decade where they led a quiet life until his untimely passing last week. As Brenda said "it was such a shock because he wasn't ill, as such, but at least he didn't suffer" and, at least, we can be thankful for that. Dearest Brenda, I, on behalf of Ibiza CC and I'm sure, many of his friends here, offer our most sincere condolences on your loss and hope that the passage of time will help. Tony, it was a pleasure and a privilege to know you and be

counted as one of your friends, and you certainly left an indelible mark on the island and your friends here. May you rest in peace. Jeremy Parmenter Chairman, Ibiza Cricket Club

"Kate Stillman Dear Kate I meant to write to you a couple of weeks ago but it will become clear why I didn’t. I now find myself in exactly the situation I was concerned about and am wondering if you can help me or if I have left it too late? About 6 months ago I finally decided to get some pain investigated that I had been experiencing for quite some time, it wasn’t really bad but I was told I would need an operation and the recovery would be slow approx. 3 months and I would definitely need support at home for lots of things including getting out of bed, going to the loo, washing and dressing for probably the first 3-4 weeks. I have a partner but we don't live together and couldn’t bare the

idea of asking for that kind of help, so, perhaps stupidly, decided not to tell anyone that the recovery would be that slow and said that they would only let me out of hospital once I could do all those basics unaided. I thought I could muddle through and be OK. I was wrong, the pain was discomfort made it impossible for me to the simplest of tasks so after 2 days I had to ask my partner to come and stay, it made a massive difference and I now feel physically much more comfortable and settled but I still feel as though I am weak and a bit of a failure for not being able to take care of myself and having to be dependant on someone for the simplest of things, this I find extremely difficult and wonder how I can reconcile myself with my situation. Yours, MA Dear MA Thank you for your letter and I am sorry to hear that you have had to have an operation. It seems form what you are saying that the difficulty for you is in accepting your situation and consequently asking for help. Acceptance is something that at some point most of us will find difficult to put into practise, there are questions we can ask ourselves for example what exactly am I finding hard to accept, what does it mean if I do / don't accept it, how could my life be better if I did accept it. Of course it is not as easy as simply answering these questions but once acceptance has taken place you then have the opportunity to decide what you would like to do about it, it doesn’t matter what you do, the important thing is that it is your choice rather then something that just happens without the necessary reflection as to why. Asking for help is difficult, it means we have to acknowledge that we are not perfect, not able to do everything and that someone else might be better or more able to help us then ourselves, all difficult concepts to come to terms with but I urge you not to focus on the asking but on the acceptance of your situation and what the asking will bring for you. If the tables were turned I am sure you would not think negatively of anyone asking you for help and you would do all you could for them. I wish you a speedy recovery and hope you begin to find it easier to (Continued on page 11)

"Lynne Pamplin The English-speaking Church on Ibiza In the third week of thinking about the Lord's Prayer, we have reached the words: Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Another way of translating the first part is: Do not bring us to the time of trial. That's the modern version I first learned and it was widely used for many years, until the General Synod of the Church of England decided, in its wisdom, to revert to “Lead us not into temptation”. I prefer “trial” rather than “temptation”! (I am told that the original Greek means test or trial.) Whatever version of the prayer we use, we are bound to meet challenging and trying situations at times, when we have to make decisions about our be-

haviour. We often need help to do this, and that comes in the next bit of the prayer: but deliver us from evil. That's asking God to rescue us from evil situations – he will do this if we let him. The Bible version of the Lord's Prayer stops at this point, but the early Church added a doxology – words of praise to God – and that's our Thought for the Week: For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, forever and ever. Amen. Our God is great, powerful, glorious and everlasting, but he is also approachable, supportive and forgiving. So if you are going through a testing time, ask for his help. You can also come along to the English speaking church, and meet people who have found out how good it is to have God in their lives, for the good times and the bad. God bless, Lynne Pamplin This Week Sunday 6th April: 09.30 BCP Holy Communion at San Rafael Church 11.00 Service of the Word with Praise & Worship at San Rafael Church: Monday 7th April: Lent course 10.30 at S'Hort de Can Masia Friday 11th April: Lent course 18.00 at Can Bagot (Chaplaincy House).

"Juan The weather has picked up again mind you I would really like some rain this week. Why? Well for various reasons, firstly the wells need the water, the plants need the water and on the basis if it rains this week there is a good chance it won’t rain the following week when our guests arrive and that it won’t rain on the Easter parade, wishful thinking no doubt. If we do get some rain it is guaranteed that we will get a full on burst of wild flowers. Even in these dry conditions I have seen some brave Poppies, Spanish iris, Tassel Hyacinth and Gladioli sticking their heads through the hard ground. So if it does rain as soon as the sun comes out get out there in the campo and walk along the lanes and tracks and you will be amazed at what you will see.

LEO - The Knight of Cups For all you Leo ladies out there this card signifies a new admirer & for Leo men; the chance to meet someone special too. It's not about being serious, just enjoy being in the now. Generally though, it means a week where people are willing to bring you a few steps forward toward achieving personal & career ambitions. Happy days! VIRGO - Three of Disks A good week for business or starting any kind of group endeavour.

AQUARIUS - The Devil Resist telling all in sundry your plans are this week. You're usually very open, but this won't serve you well at all!

While many many cruel hoaxers punish the families of the victims with spurious and fabricated tales, my gut feeling is that this is simply one card being played in the hand of the Pluto:Jupiter opposition, T squared by Uranus. That gut feeling does not give me an answer, but tells me there is a story of truth yet to unfold, rather like the death of Princess Diana. Accounts of both events leave me with a sense of Deja moo – I’m certain I’ve heard this bull**** before! Earlier this week on the 1st and 2nd, the Sun squared with Jupiter, then aligned exactly with Uranus, then on the 3rd it squared with Pluto. Any one of these are worth of comment in their own right, but the combination is almost like Lightning, hurricane and downpour – which do you focus on? Think POWER from Pluto, LARGE from Jupiter, and UNPREDICTABLE from Uranus…… mix in a bottle, shake vigorously, light the blue touch paper and watch what happens! Whether guided missile, unguided missile, explosion or huge conflagration, for sure we will witness a firework display. Parallel to this, Venus the siren is playing with old man Neptune, so a few dreams may be agitated by her seductive ways. However, Venus parallels Uranus, so there’s a surprise/sting in the tail somewhere. In one form or another, I smell jealousy. On the 8th, the Sun conjuncts retrograde Mars which I suspect will manifest in a quantum of moderation. Mars may be warmed by the Sun’s influence and become less aggressive – lets watch for that across the world; at home too! The following day (9th) Mars parallels Saturn, which suggests a firm word or three from the stern schoolmaster to the passing redneck. As we enter next week, we have a busy approach up to the Full Moon in Aries on the 15th. That Full Moon is a crucial one, as it bears witness to a Cardinal Grand Cross, which is an immensely powerful configuration. As an added bonus, the Full moon features a total Lunar Eclipse. Now that WILL be interesting! However, more about that next week! Until next week, spend a moment considering how life might be… and then count your blessings one by one. And enjoy my blessing too, your Ibiza Astrologer.

Chocolate Cheesecake

"Queen of Cakes Most people like chocolate, so this week I will give you a simple but delicious little recipe that everyone can enjoy - even the younger generation can make this one! So a very simple and delicious chocolate cheesecake…. Firstly a reminder of the rules, it has been a while since I posted these so a memory jogger is in order:

Cook with love and Passion! Only cook things you like with Love and Passion!! Use the best quality ingredients. Use the right equipment. Follow instructions. Chocolate cheesecake: (No cook!). You will need a round 18cm cake tin or tart tray. 150g digestive biscuits 50g butter 110g caster sugar 120ml whipping cream 150g dark chocolate, melted. Use a good quality 70% chocolate for best results. 2 tablespoons cocoa powder mixed with a little hot water 1 x 200g tub cream cheese Firstly melt the butter in a small saucepan, now crush the digestive biscuits then mix with the melted butter and 1 tablespoon of the caster sugar. Press the mix into the cake tin use the back of a large metal spoon so that you have an even flat layer. Now place his in the fridge. Melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water, taking care that the water doesn’t touch the chocolate, stir until smooth and creamy leave to cool slightly. Now whip the cream until soft peaks form, carefully mix in the melted chocolate, then the cocoa powder mix. Blend well and set aside. Beat the cream cheese and remaining sugar together now fold this into the cream/chocolate mixture and make sure it is all mixed thoroughly. Spread the mixture into the tin on top of the crushed biscuits. Freeze for one hour. Remove from the freezer and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving. Serve as it is, or decorate with piped whipped cream, fresh edible flowers or fruit such as strawberries. Enjoy!

69 by Proteas skipper de Villiers with 25 off one over from Dernbach (why, oh why, was he even in the squad!), at least the 3 Lions made a fist of it, ending up losing by only 3 runs. However, worse was to come, as on Monday they were humiliated by Holland (yes, Holland who aren't even classed as a Test playing nation and not in the World's top 10). We thought it couldn't get any worse but having kept the Dutch down to a seemingly attainable 135 odd, to at least gain some credibility, England were blown away scoring only 89 all out. Point to remember, guys, you cannot expect to win any cricket match, be it 5 dayer, 1 dayer but especially 20/20, if you don't score a boundary in 10 overs. Nuff said! In Tennis, a big weekend for GB coming up as Our Andy and his team face a daunting task against Italy in Naples to make the Davis Cup semi-finals for the first time in 36 years.

Said reader, being an ardent Blackburn Rovers fan (no name here 'cos he wants to be anonymous but we'll call him Ian to save any embarrassment) took exception to the photo last week, featuring Championship team Ipswich Town. His complaint was that if our Ed can put a photo in of his own team in my report why no mention of other teams in the Division? Now this could open up a whole can of worms because I rarely mention the lower divisions mainly be-

cause I don't have the space available, so I'm going to sit on the fence on this one hand over to you dear Ed!  Comment Nick Gibbs

I will endeavour to apply editorial objectivity in all aspects of the newspaper, all that is except football where I draw the line. The paper is and ever shall be in my tenure, openly biased to Ipswich Town. Perhaps I should follow the Cardiff chairman's lead and change our logo from Red to Blue and White? That said I am always pleased to hear from another non-Man Utd/ Chelsea etc supporter and so I hope ´anonymous´ will be placated to some extent with this small (no space left) photo of a good day at Rovers.

San Rafael hosted a Santanyi doomed to relegation in a game where victory would see the home side pull away from the relegation zone. Rafael started in confident mood and eased to a 2-0 lead at half time with goals from Fisher (26mins) with a superb finish after a cross from Adri and from Adrian Ramos with, when, oneon-one he nutmeg’d the keeper. The second half was as easy for the home side, but Santanyi started to get a few more tackles in but the match was marred on the 59th minute when a coming together between Ramiro and Ramos, ended with both of them sent off for violent conduct.

Another member of the Santanyi bench was also sent off and two of the San Rafael team getting yellows. San Rafael made the game safe on 80 mins when Nil lobbed the keeper from edge of the box to secure the valuable three points. MANACOR 2-3 PENA

Pena will look at this game and will think what could have been, as they went 3-0 up within 35 mins, with an overhead kick from Ramiro on 15 mins, Paolo on 28 mins with a header and Ayrton on 34 mins with a superb solo effort. Then things became less one sided when just before the break Seral was sent off for bringing down Sete in the box, and changes were made as Alexandre was replaced by the substitute keeper Moro, who nearly managed to save Barbon’s penalty, but at the break 1-3 was the score. Manacor came out with more purpose in the second half and with Pena trying to kill the game by playing deeper and with everyone behind the ball it was looking a shrewd move until the 71st min when Manacor scored their second through Torrejon. Manacor then set about the task of getting the equaliser but just could not find that last killer touch and keep Pena’s hopes of a second straight title still very much alive. Mallorca B beat Rotlet-Molinar 6-0 at home to keep their lead to 4pts. MERCADAL 1-0 FORMENTERA

spot. In the end their attempts were futile as the Ship steam rolled over them. Ibiza Piratas A 1 – Ship Inn 8. The following night The Ship Inn had to take on the stronger pirates, Piratas B, in a match between the top 2 sides, a clash between titans! The leaders started strong, showing what made them top calibre material as they took game after game, leading at the half-way point 4-2. As we know though, Ship Inn is not a team to go down easily, as they fought back to tie the match even at 4-4 before the final game. After the tension simmered and the banging ceased it was the piratas who came out on top and still in the driving

seat. Ship Inn 4 – Ibiza Piratas B 5. Now after the match between the top 2 teams we go to the third placed team, Bar Home, as they hosted the Fish and Ships squad. The banter was flying yet again in the home away from home as both teams raised cues and never gave in until the final ball, which was justified as it was another 4-4 decider which went down to being a double black ball finish! As the final ball went down Bar Home shouted in glory at their latest victory, an extra bit of trivia is that this was Bar Home's fifth consecutive 5-4 victory. Bar Home 5 – Fish and Ships 4. Finally we come to the derby of San An Bay as it was Smugglers vs Smugglers, the pensioners vs the youngsters! The pensioners felt like a brand new team after the return of 2 of their top players and it showed, as the pensioners took the lead early against the “Death or Glory!” tactics of the A-team. The young guns were relentless in trying to regain a hold on the match, digging down deep, although all they found was more and more banter. In the end though the old boys showed their experience and put the youngsters in their place. Smugglers B 6 Smugglers A 3. Next week it's Fish and Ships vs Smugglers B Smugglers A vs Ship Inn and Sun and Moon vs Ibiza Piratas A on Thursday and Ibiza Piratas B vs Father Jacks on Friday with Bar Home taking the week off.

win.” Mercedes-Benz Motorsport chief Toto Wolff was delighted to convert pole and P3 into maximum points. He said: “It doesn’t get any better than a one-two finish – congratulations to everybody in the team, at Mercedes-Benz and at Petronas who worked so hard to make this happen, it was a controlled race from the first lap and Lewis and Nico did a fantastic job in very demanding conditions” Hot prospect Daniel Ricciardo’s

seems to have taken over Lewis on the bad luck front. His hopes of challenging for a podium were dashed when Red Bull messed up one of his tyre stops and his car had to be pushed back down the pit lane into the box. The Australian was then penalised by FIA race stewards with a 10second stop-go penalty for unsafe release. The day did not get any better for Ricciardo as post race he was hit with a 10-place grid penalty for next week’s 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix for Red Bull’s unsafe release.

Welcome back pool fans! With the league nearly over it's become very clear that one team has been head and shoulders above the rest. However, with the end in sight, it has been noticed that a possible uprising may take place. With a gap to fill can the Ship Inn managed to overtake Piratas B in the final weeks? Read on and find out... First we'll start with some unfinished business from last week. The Ship Inn haven't been on top form recently, after 2 consecutive losses and a week off they had to come back to face Piratas A, who were hoping to put an end to the hopes of the Ship and aid their pirating brethren in the quest for the top

their game plan didn’t go to plan at the 5th placed club. In the first 5 mins Domi had headed against the crossbar and Mas shot just wide from a cross from Caldero. Formentera tried to play slowly to take the sting out of the game, but without much luck, with only Piquero playing up front on his own, he was being muscled off the ball to easily, giving the home side plenty of possession to attack Formentera with. Caldero was running the show from midfield and it was unsurprising that he was involved in the opening goal. Just before the break his pass found Mas in the box but Argilaga brought him down crudely and Caldero converted the penalty in the 3rd minute of injury time, which made the home supporters “Bovril” taste much nicer. Formentera changed to a more attacking line up for

the second half but they just could not break down the stubborn Mercadal defence.

"Jeremy Parmenter In the Premier League it's all change at the top with the mighty Liverpool, stunning 4-0 winners over Tottenham at Anfield (well, there's a surprise!) taking over from Chelsea, after the Blues came apart at Crystal Palace (who, I might add, thoroughly deserved their win) losing1-0. Could have been worse for the Blues as Manchester City didn't take advantage and could only draw 1-1 against Arsenal at the Emirates. So, if the 'Pool win their remaining 6 games, they will be Champions but, and there's always a but, they still have to play Chelsea and City, albeit at home.

At the bottom, it's not looking good for Sunderland as they lost yet again, this time 2-1 at home to West Ham, Fulham look as if they're down and out, and West Brom and Cardiff, 17th and 18th respectively, battled out a 3-3 draw at The Hawthorns. Finally, Norwich look safe despite their 3-0 defeat at Swansea and Hull lost 1-0 at Stoke, but both are looking safe. It's Champions League time again this week, and our last two reps need to do some real damage in the Quarter Final first legs if they want to progress.

F1: Rub of the Grey For Lewis "Nick Gibbs Starting in pole position Lewis Hamilton lead the Malaysian Grand Prix from start to finish in a faultless performance. Shrugging off the technical problems and misfortune that have blighted the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 star in recent races, he crossed the finish line an emphatic 17 seconds clear of Silver Arrows team-mate Nico Rosberg, as Mercedes claimed a podium one-two – the team’s first since Juan Manuel Fangio and Piero Taruffi at the 1955 Italian Grand Prix. It was Hamilton’s second win for Mercedes and his 23rd Formula One career victory, and one of his most commanding. Reigning F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel finished third for Red Bull, and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was 11.4s behind Vettel at the chequered flag, having clawed back past Nico Hulkenberg’s Force India in the closing stages. Where all of the leading runners opted for three pit stops, Hulken(Continúa en la página 14)

F1 Coming to Ibiza? Following last week's report of a great year ahead for Motorsport in Ibiza, petrolheads have even more reason to get fired up with news that a Formula 1 travelling exhibition will visit the island in October. Announcing the event Ibiza Councillor for Tourism Cllr Prats said plans were at an early stage but “we are confident that we will succeed.” Organisers of the road show Bavaria City Racing have staged the event in cities across Europe including Moscow Dublin and Rotterdam, where top drivers including Alonso and Button have made guest appearances. Though F1 is the main attraction the event will also feature vehicles from the world of Superbikes, Supercars, Touring cars, Formula 2 , World Rally Cross and Drifters. Prats said the exhibition had the potential to generate 15million€ and would attract visitors on week long and short stay tours around the various events, to be held over the weekend of 11 and 12 or 18 and 19 October on a circuit in Passeig Joan Carles I and Avinguda d' Agost 8. (Note: the Autocross detailed in last week's report has been postponed from 30th march to 13th April)
