Al-Qaeda chief arrested P6

Pakistan military claim they have detained a senior al-Qaeda leader and two accomplices


Anniversary of 9/11 marked President Barack Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will join former President George W. Bush, former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, former New York Governor George Pataki, Current New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, among many others, at a ceremony at the World Trade Center site to mark the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Victims' families will have the chance to view the names of loved ones etched into the memorial. Speaking on his weekly radio show on Friday on WOR-AM, Mayor Bloomberg said the lawmakers will read short poems or quotes. He said: "This cannot be political, so that's why there's a poem or a quote or

something that each of the readers will read. No speeches whatsoever. That's not an appropriate thing."

WORLD Good news

By Kym Wickham

At last the weather seems to be calming down and I’ve always thought that May and June, and September and October are the best months of all to be here in Spain. Maybe it’s because I’m a northern European that, although I never did like the grey, drizzly gloominess and lack of colours in the uK, I just wish that it wouldn’t get quite as hot as it does in the summer here. I have been working in a virtual cave for the last three months as, although our big office has airconditioning, the three smaller ones don’t and, guess what, all the men on the team work in the one that has the airconditioning whereas the women have to have the persianas down because that’s the side that gets the sun all day - and, yes, it is quite mad that the side that doesn’t get the sun has the Ac - we have the lights on and the fans going mental! Still, the last two days I’ve been able to get some air in the place and it’s been really quite pleasant. At home, the pool is getting quite cool too and, as I’m not one that relishes getting cold and wet, I think that over the next couple of days my daily swims will come to an end. It’s a shame because that , coupled with the diet (I’ll tell you more about that in a couple of weeks time), it seems to have been keeping me a bit fitter and more toned and it’s sooooo worth it when someone says: “Have you lost weight?” and I can get into some of my clothes that haven’t met in the middle for around five years! I suppose I will just have to start parking the car well out of town and walking the last kilometre or so into work once it properly cools down and before the rains start again. I shall be going home in a minute (it’s 8pm and we’ve just put the paper you’re reading to bed) and I’m hoping that the river that’s running down our camino (see the letter on page 27) has stopped as the road will be like a pudding again soon!

Anniversary of 9/11 marked The names of the nearly 3,000 victims – including those who died at the Pentagon and on board United Flight 93 that went down in Shanksville, Pennsylvania – will be read aloud for the first time. The general public will

be allowed into the space, still a major construction site, the day after the ceremony but only with tickets. Bloomberg said limiting the number of people is a safety precaution as the work continues on 1 World Trade Center, the PATH

station and museum. He said there have been a couple of hundred thousand reservations, and a few days are already booked solid. He estimated that a million people annually will visit the site. The museum is still

under construction and is scheduled to open next year. Artefacts from the terrorist attacks are slowly being accumulated for the space, including a steel Tbeam shaped like a cross that was discovered by a construction worker in the smouldering rubble.

Bloomberg said other religious relics would be in the museum – a star of David cut from World Trade Center steel, a Bible found during the recovery effort and a Jewish prayer shawl. (See page 12 for the toxic aftermath of the attacks.)

'One position, one salary'

UK drugs gang smashed

The Socialist candidate in the November 20th general election, Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, proposed a new rule on Tuesday to prevent party members from concurrently holding elected offices at both the local and national levels.

The Guardia Civil have broken up the biggest gang of British drug traffickers who went to Ibiza specifically for the summer season every year to supply the huge demand for drugs.

He told the party's executive committee that Socialists who are already serving in office – as mayor, for example – will not be able to run on the party slates for MPs and members of the Upper

House and expect to hold both offices. The Popular Party's Maria Dolores de Cospedal has roused Socialist ire for drawing three salaries, as the premier of the Castilla-

La Mancha since May 22nd, as a member of the Upper House and as PP secretary general, which add up to more than €200,000 a year. On Monday, Rubalcaba confirmed that he will raise

taxes in the banking sector and resurrect the wealth tax that Zapatero abolished in 2008 in the hope of collecting around €2.5 billion that would be used to create jobs, especially for young people.

Judge lets ex-PP treasurer off hook Madrid High Court Judge Antonio Pedreira has dropped the investigation against former Partido Popular (PP) treasurer Luis Bárcenas, accused of money laundering and tax evasion in the huge socalled Gürtel kickbacks-for-contracts case. Anti-corruption prosecutors said on Friday

that they will appeal the ruling. Judge Pedreira ruled that Bárcenas actually tried to stop the PP from continuing to do business with alleged Gürtel ringleader Francisco Correa. Sr Pedreira wrote in his ruling that relations between Correa and Bárcenas “were bad", saying “Bárcenas warned about

Francisco Correa's irregular conduct and warned about the need for the Popular Party's leadership to cut ties with Francisco Correa and his businesses". The judge also said that the statute of limitations had run out on the tax evasion charges Bárcenas was facing for the years 2002 and 2003. He also said Bárcenas could not

They said most of the 3,600 ecstasy pills seized in the operation were branded as Pink Rock Star, similar to those believed to have caused the death of a British woman and the poisoning of eight other people on Ibiza in July. In raids on eight properties, they arrested 13 people, including 10 from the UK and two from the Republic of Ireland, and seized 69,000 in cash and a stash of cocaine and ecstasy crystals. The UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) was also involved in the investigation.

National News King confined to palace King Juan Carlos left the USP San José Clinic early on Monday after undergoing surgery to repair damage to the Achilles tendon of his left foot late on Sunday evening. A clinic spokesman said the operation, in which only a local anaesthetic was given, was done overnight so as “not to interfere with the clinic's functioning”. The king will not be able stand for at

least 10 days and his full recovery will take seven to ten weeks. The king will continue to work in his office at the Zarzuela Palace but his public duties will be

undertaken by Crown Prince Felipe. Doctors said the damage was caused by the King having to rely too heavily on his left leg after he underwent an operation on his right knee in June.

Jobless figures up The number of unemployed rose by 51,185 in August, bringing to an end a four-month-long drop. The number of people on the dole now stands at 4,130,927 but when the number of unemployed people not receiving financial help from the state is taken into account it rises to 4.8 million. The services sector registered the highest number of jobs lost, followed by construction and industry. The biggest rises were registered in Catalonia, Murcia and Extremadura

Police denounce government The Federal Police Union (UFP) presented a resolution to the Eurocop Executive Committee in Brussels last week denouncing what policemen have been suffering since May 15th “because of the inaction of the government and police

chiefs” and the marked difference between the way the M-15 youth movement and other protest groups are treated. A spokesman said the UFP had decided to appeal to the European Union because the Spanish

government “clearly leans towards the so-called indignant ones rather than its own police forces”. The spokesman said the police were not to blame for anything “except working interminable shifts, putting up with all

kinds of abuse from the protesters, giving security both to those who want to exercise their right to freely walk the streets and those who impede them day after day, clearly breaking the law.”, adding “We are fed up”.

Drunk pedestrians beware Driving while drunk is obviously dangerous but so is walking while drunk, according to a report prepared for the 4th International Congress on the Prevention of Risky Highway Behaviours (Precovir), to be held in Valencia in November. The

National Institute of Toxicology analysed data on more than 1,100 people who had died in road accidents and found that 55 per cent of the pedestrians who were killed had been committing some kind of infraction at the time. Just over 24 per cent had been

drunk, another 9 per cent registered positive for “drugs of abuse” such as cocaine, marijuana or heroine, and 13 per cent had taken mind-altering drugs. More than half of those who died drunk or drugged were aged between 21 and 40.

The report said the number of deaths due to alcohol had dropped while deaths due to drugs had tripled. Just under a third were women and out of the total number studied two thirds had died at weekends.

The incident happened about four years ago and after the tourist – who took the photo from another tower – posted it on the internet, the woman turned out to be Ilse Uyttesprot, mayor of Aalst in Belgium and a member of the European Partido

Popular group. The Kings of Navarre held court at the Palace until 1512, when the region merged with Castille. It was considered one of the most luxurious medieval palaces in Europe. It obviously bewitched the mayor who said on Twitter that it had been a private moment with her partner and was “politically irrelevant”.

'Franco relic' to retire


The 88-year-old former premier of the Galicia regional government rose to prominence in 1962 when he became Franco’s tourism minister. He invented the catch phrase “Spain is different” to attract foreign tourists. During his seven years as minister, he relaxed the censorship laws which allowed slightly more explicit sex scenes in films, popularly summarised in the expression Con Fraga hasta la braga (With Fraga

Summer road deaths at all-time low

PP founder and last surviving minister from the Franco years, Manuel Fraga, has decided not to run in the November 20th election. He had a hip operation a few months ago and has not occupied his seat in the Upper House since then.


you can even see the panties). On March 8th, 1966, he went swimming with then American ambassador Angier Biddle Duke at Palomares to prove that the area had not been contaminated by nuclear warheads which had fallen into the sea and on land when two American planes crashed in mid-air just off the coast. He was Spain’s ambassador to St James’s Court when Franco died in 1975 and he was active in the Transition, being one of the authors of the 1978 Constitution. Franco and his hardliners never trusted Fraga completely – they

felt he was too much of a reformist. But in the new democratic Spain he was considered too much of a hardliner. In 1978 he formed the right-wing Alianza Popular (Peoples’ Alliance) which fared increasingly badly in elections. He resigned as president of the party in 1986, by which time the Alliance was considered too reactionary to be a viable alternative to the Socialist Party, which went from strength to strength under Felipe Gonzalez after he won the 1982 election. In 1989, Fraga founded the Partido Popular,

leaving it in the hands of his protégé, Jose Maria Aznar, to go back to his native Galicia to win that year’s regional election for the PP. He governed for the next 15 years and during his years in power, he modernised Galicia, building highways which opened up the region to tourism and in 2000, he approved the Galician Plan to build Spain's first high speed bullet train. But to his opponents he was always an authoritarian relic from the Franco era. Paradoxically, he has maintained a friendship with Cuba’s Fidel Castro, whose grandparents were Galician immigrants.

Interior Minister Antonio Camacho has said the figures for the July/August Summer Traffic Operation – 321, down 41 from 362 last year – were "the best figure in a decade, probably the best in history, " adding that "321 fatalities is a lot, too many”. This year’s figures were similar to those of the 1970s, when there were 2.1 million drivers in Spain compared to 26 million today. Just over half died in cars, 17 per cent were on motorbikes and nine per cent were pedestrians. MADRID

Twitter asked not to promote anorexia The Health Ministry asked the social network Twitter last week to delete profiles of users who explicitly encourage eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. The ministry posted the request on its own Twitter page: @sanidadgob. The ministry, together with the Guardia Civil’s Telemetric Crime Unit of the Civil Guard, has created a network for the efficient detection of profiles that promote eating disorders. Once identified, the Guardia Civil will ask Twitter to block or delete the accounts. GALICIA

Town holds 3rd Celtic wedding fest It was a mass wedding with a difference. The Celts felt forever was too long so couples married for one year only, at the end of which they renewed their vows or separated. Last week, 25 couples gathered on the beach at Cedeira to be married by the self-proclaimed druid "Dos Ártabros," (aka Manuel Aneiro), after walking round the town dressed in their Celtic finery. Only eight couples were married at the first Celtic wedding in 2009, while 15 made it last year.

A spokeswoman said the meetings in Beijing took place without the knowledge of the government. She said that no contracts were signed and no arms supplied. The UN Security Council passed an arms embargo on Libya in February. The meetings were first reported in the Torontobased Globe and Mail newspaper, citing documents found among rubbish in the Tripoli home of a Gaddafi senior official.

Texas fires at 'crucial stage' As firefighters in drought-stricken Texas struggled to contain the 16-mile-wide Bastrop wildfire that has destroyed almost 500 homes, officials on Monday said it had "grown considerably" and was burning on 25,000 acres. The fire is the largest of dozens of wildfires burning throughout the state, including more than 60 that started on Sunday. An estimated 5,000 people have been forced to leave their homes because of the Bastrop fire, which is about 30 miles south-east of Austin and moving away from the state capital. Powerful winds from Tropical Storm Lee,

hundreds of miles to the east, have fanned the flames. Jan Amen of the Texas Forest Service described the central Texas blaze as "a monster" that had been "zero percent contained". Texas governor Rick Perry cut short presidential campaigning, and said the next 48 to 72 hours would be "crucial". He urged people to heed evacuation orders and not to

stay in their homes if they had lost power: "I understand that losing your home or lifetime possessions is incredibly difficult, but do not put your life in jeopardy." A blaze in east Texas killed a 20-yearold woman and her baby daughter on Sunday before it was extinguished. Texas has been suffering its worst drought since the 1950s.

Robert Mugabe 'has cancer' Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has prostate cancer which has spread to other organs, according to a leaked US diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks, which cites central bank governor Gideon Gono as saying Mr Mugabe's doctors had told him to

September, Mr Mugabe – who has been in power since 1980 – dismissed rumours that he was dying of cancer and had suffered a stroke. The cable also said that Gono had said Mugabe had told his doctor that he would leave office after the 2008 election.

UK News Brown’s temper Cameras to be exposed A new book of Alistair Darling’s memoirs is to be published today by Atlantic Books. The book, entitled “Back From The Brink: 1000 Days At No 11” is said to contain detailed stories of Gordon Brown’s allegedly nasty temper and singles out former business minister Shriti Vadera, in collusion with the then shadow chancellor Ed Balls, as running “what amounted to a parallel treasury within the government”. Former chancellor Darling details the arguments that went on behind the scenes at Number 10 and 11 Downing Street up to the crash from office of the Labour party. According to a blog by Labour Uncut, the book also details the time in 2009 when Brown tried to sack his chancellor and tells the true story of Brown’s famously volcanic temper towards the end of his days as the UK’s prime minister.

Following news from the blog, Saveeda Warsi said that the book would prove that infighting within the labour party was the direct cause of their being kicked out of Number 10 and they had put infighting ahead of the nation’s interests. She said: “Alistair Darling’s memoirs should give Ed Miliband some concerns about Ed Balls’ suitability to be shadow chancellor. Ed Balls recently claimed that he “did his politics on the record” but has already been shown to have been at the heart of the plot to oust Tony Blair. Now Alistair Darling accuses him of running a shadow treasury operation within his own government. “No wonder Labour left the nation’s finances in such a mess when they put party political plotting above the national interest.” A Sunday newspaper has done a deal to serialise the book.

It was announced yesterday (Tuesday) that cameras are to be allowed in British courts for the first time. The cameras may be allowed to record some opening and closing statements by lawyers and barristers and some sentencing procedures. However, measures are to be put in place to protect sensitive cases such as family division cases and vulnerable witnesses will not be filmed. Judges, at least for the time being, will be allowed to decide whether or not to let the cameras into their courts. Still photography was banned from British courts in the 1920’s and since then the only way to depict what has been going on inside a court of law has been by sketching done by artists. The Associate Editor of Sky News, Simon Bucks, said that the procedure may help to clarify in people’s minds why some sentences are handed down, giving the example of the vast differences in sentencing following the recent London riots. However, it is not envisioned that British Law Courts are likely to go the way of the likes of the American TV programme Judge Judy and The People’s Court that are similar to British small claims courts and are, frankly, hilarious but not at all “British”.

Brrrr... David Williams, star of TV’s Little Britain, swam the channel last year for charity and raised a small fortune. This year he is attempting to swim the Thames. That is along its entire length that is approximately 140 miles, again to raise money for Sport Relief. However, with the recent cold snaps hitting the UK overnight, he had to be taken out of the water on Monday as he had turned blue with the cold, finishing just a couple of miles short of his day one stopping point. However, he is carrying on with the challenge.

Alleged killer arrested Graeme Jarman, 47, has been arrested in Filey, North Yorkshire after a librarian recognised him from CCtV shown on tV. he had been on the run after allegedly attacking 77-year-old pensioner, Judith richardson, and killing her with a hammer. her handbag, inside which police found her name and address, was found dumped in a bin in hexham and police constables going to her home to return it assumed that they were looking at a case of theft when theycame upon her battered body on August 19th. A hammer in a plastic bag later found nearby was confirmed as the murder weapon. the public had been told that the educated, well-spoken Jarman could convince people that he wasn’t the man in the footage and that he was likely to be found in a library or similar place. After the call from the librarian, Jarman was arrested at 3pm on saturday and charged with her murder. he is to appear in front of Newcastle Magistrates Court later today, wednesday. Cheshire

Jailed nurse released Nurse rebecca Leighton, 27, was released from styal Prison, Cheshire without charge in connection with the deaths of several patients poisoned with contaminated saline drips at stepping hill hospital. several cases had been referred to police by stockport Coroner John Pollard but it has been found that some 500 people could have had access to the saline bags. Ms Leighton, who is now staying with her parents was remanded in styal for 45 days and said: “it was so frustrating for me knowing that the person who actually carried out these terrible acts is still out there.” her barrister had described the case against her as “weak” and that there was no case to answer. CPs Prosecutor Nazur Afzal said: “On the evidence currently available there is not a case in law that could proceed.”

New candidate for Mayor The Liberal Democrats have named former Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Brian Paddick as their candidate in the running for next year’s mayor of London. Paddick, 49, secured the candidacy after winning a ballot of the party’s London members. He was the first high-ranking openly gay police officer before he resigned. He caused a great deal of controversy when he was still in his post by ordering police in Brixton not to arrest people being found in possession of cannabis years before the drug had been officially downgraded from class C to B. He said that cleaner air, less crime and less Londoners living in poverty were “crucial” to London adding that “for too long Londoners have been denied a serious debate on the future of their city”. He will come up against current mayor of London, Conservative Boris Johnson and Labour’s former mayor Ken Livingstone.

Local News Arrested for defacing Alhambra A member of Jordan's armed forces was detained in early August after being caught writing his name on a wall of the Carlos V palace in the Alhambra. This is considered a crime against a historical heritage site and carries a jail sentence of one to three years and a fine. The officer had come to Spain as part of a military delegation sent to purchase a plane. He decided to take advantage of his stay in Seville to go to Granada and

visit the Alhambra. By carving his name, he was following a tradition that goes back centuries. When Washington Irving, the author of Tales of the Alhambra, first visited the Moorish palace in the late 1820s he was horrified by the graffiti defacing the walls. He suggested introducing a visitors' book which largely

eliminated such defacement from that day to this. The Alhambra's governing body is inclined to be lenient with the Jordanian, because the damage was easily repaired but the Junta de Andalucia wants to make an example of him, as a warning to future visitors.

Call for more efficient campaigns Torremolinos mayor Pedro Fernandez Montes has urged the Junta de Andalucia and the government to develop “more efficient” campaigns to attract tourists to the Costa del Sol. He was speaking at the town's 23rd Tourist Day, which is held on the first Thursday in September to honour those who provide the services and the tourists who return to Torremolinos year after year. He said Andalucia depended on media impact and photographs to

attract tourists whereas other destinations like the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands deployed very professional campaigns on the tourists' home grounds, mainly Britain and Germany. He also called on hotels to restructure their rates. He said they were currently working at subsistence level to avoid frightening away tourists but this meant they did not earn enough money to invest in infrastructure with the resulting loss of quality.

Plastic bags fast disappearing The Junta de Andalucia's environment chief, José Juan Diaz Trillo, said the war declared on single-use plastic bags was proceeding satisfactorily and that the the objective of eliminating 90 per cent of them by 2016 was perfectly feasible. A tax of five cents on each bag bought by supermarkets, stores and other businesses was

introduced in May. Part of the tax is passed on to the consumer and Sr Diaz said this, plus an ongoing awareness-raising campaign, was changing the habits of consumers, who are opting to pay 50 cents for a sturdy, reusable bag rather than spend two cents or more on a singleuse bag every time they go to the supermarket.

Fuengirola launches 'Stop manta' Mayor Esperanza Oña introduced the council's “Stop manta”campaign to the media last week, assuring journalists that it was not “aimed at anyone in particular but at avoiding the proliferation of the submerged economy by convincing residents and visitors alike not to buy counterfeit goods”. More than 10,000 leaflets will be distributed and 3,000 stickers will be posted in local stores.” The leaflet explains that buying illegal products “encourages the submerged economy and tax fraud, helps to destroy jobs and turns the buyer into the accomplice of an activity that breaks the law”.

'Fishers' of clients to be fined Mijas council has decided to rid the town's streets of the so-called “pescadores” (fishers) who try to entice passing tourists into bars, restaurants or shops by fining them up to €3,000, depending on the degree of harassment. Councillor Juan Carlos Gonzalez said the objective was to improve the town's image and make sure tourists could visit it in peace without being pestered by people who want to do business. The practice has increased in recent months as businesses are forced to compete more aggressively to stay afloat. The proposed regulation is expected to become law in the near future.

Marbella mayor in life-saving attempt The driver who stopped to help a man who fell off his motorbike on the Ronda-Estepona road on Sunday was surprised when the woman whose car he flagged down for help turned out to be Marbella mayor Angeles Muñoz. Sra Muñoz was a doctor before she went into politics. Unfortunately her attempts to keep him conscious failed and the 35-year-old man slipped into a coma and died before the ambulance arrived.

Gay town causes uproar The town of Moclinejo (pop. 1,270) in the Axarquia hit the headlines last week when the organiser of Expogays, to be held in Torremolinos in October, announced that it would become “the first gay town in the world”. Javier Checa said there were plans to build 600 houses and apartments exclusively for gays and that the town's inhabitants were willing to paint their houses pink. Mayor Antonio Muñoz Anaya immediately went on record to say that things were not exactly as Sr Checa portrayed. He said the two men had met and that he had approved – in principle – Sr Checa's proposal to build 50 houses on land provided by the council which would be advertised at the October Expogay. Sr Muñoz added: “I told him I didn't care who he sold the houses to as long as they were bought.” The Colega Federation of Andalucia which works for the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals was not impressed either. A spokesman said Sr Checa had abused the local council's trust by lying about the size of the project.

Baby survives 4-storey fall A 16-month-old girl survived a fall from a fourth floor balcony on Saturday because she landed on the roof of car parked below. The car roof acted as a trampoline and she bounced on to the pavement. She was rushed to hospital and underwent a battery of tests – including a CAT scan – but no internal injuries or broken bones were found. Police believe she climbed on to a chair on the balcony and lost her balance when she leaned over the metal railing. COTO DOÑANA

Lynx learns to cross road Staff working at the lynx breeding project in Doñana were delighted by photographs taken on Sunday showing a young lynx entering and leaving a so-called ecoduct – a raised passage over a road designed to prevent lynx living in the wild, many of whom were bred in captivity – from being hit by traffic, one of the greatest threats to the animals' survival. It was the first time they had seen evidence that the endangered cats were learning to use the ecoducts. SEVILLA

Life clashes with art Work on Sacha Baron Cohen's new film Finchley Dreams, about a Gaddafi-style dictator, came to a standstill when a march protesting last week's constitutional reform ran into barriers around a square where some 400 “revolutionaries” were pulling down an invisible statue of the dictator, Aladeen. They started arguing with the film's security staff and there were a few tense moments until Mayor Juan Ignacio Zoido turned up to persuade the police to allow the protesters a safe passage through the square.

Toxic dust legacy of 9/11 plagues thousands More than 18,000 people are suffering from illnesses linked to the dust from the attacks on New York's World Trade Center on September 11th 2001, according to the US government's monitoring and treatment programme for 9/11 emergency workers, volunteers and local residents. Dr John Howard, Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, who is the senior official managing the health legacy of the attacks, said the most common problems are respiratory, including asthma and sinusitis, but muscular and intestinal conditions have also been reported. Dr Howard said people could die of "many of these conditions that we have seen associated with these exposures". Researchers found a high proportion of highly alkaline particles from the pulverised concrete, as well as asbestos and heavy metals like lead and mercury from thousands of computers and lights in the dust that blew though

neighbouring streets and settled over Lower Manhattan.

60,000 people registered as potentially vulnerable – spells out the risks:

Nearly 3,000 people died when the two 110-storey buildings were destroyed the single greatest atrocity on US soil – but up to 80,000 people, including firemen, police officers, emergency workers, contractors and cleaning staff, who rushed to help in the aftermath are among potential victims of a toxic fallout. Soon after the attacks people started reporting what became known as "World Trade Center cough" but symptoms have since become more serious.

"There is no question that thousands of World Trade Center responders have developed chronic, disabling illnesses as a result of their horrific exposures.

The US government's WTC Health Programme – which has more than



"Based on accumulated knowledge and medical science, occupational medicine physicians have now learned that, for many responders, WTC-related physical and mental conditions are likely to be permanent. "Sadder still, new patients are still being seen who haven't been evaluated before or treated."

The firemen who led the effort to search for survivors and, later, for remains seem to be the most vulnerable. One major study of New York fire fighters carried out last year found significant decreases in lung capacity – even six years after the attacks. More controversial is the question of whether the conditions associated with the dust have so far caused any deaths. In 2006, a New Jersey pathologist ruled that a detective, James Zadroga, died of lung disease that was linked to WTC dust. The finding was challenged by the New York medical examiner, but the detective's case was deemed serious enough for his name to be given to new legislation. The Zadroga



Act, passed in December last year and written into law in January this year, authorises $4.7 billion for monitoring, treatment and compensation for victims. One rescuer, police officer Jeff Endean, has retired on health grounds including respiratory problems, headaches and sinus trouble. Mr Endean said: "The bad days are

when it's very hard to breathe. There's a lot of coughing and anybody who's had bronchitis or something like that, knows the more you cough the more it hurts." "The headaches start and it inhibits you from doing many things. You can't run. I really don't run anymore. I haven't run since 9/11."

Memo from

Voice Madrid

Muriel Pilkington

Martin Delfín Writes for the English language version of

Dangers of minority rule

Spreading the wealth



he minority parties’ apocalyptic reaction to last week’s extremely rare alliance between the ruling Socialist party and the Partido Popular only served to underline the fact that Spain has been governed by a minority since March 2004, when Zapatero took power.


n a strategy designed to reduce the PP’s anticipated victory as much as possible in March 2004, he wooed the Catalan nationalists, especially the Catalan Republic Left party (ERC), and the Izquierda Unida (IU, United Left), which is the old Communist party in disguise.


e'll never know if it was this strategy that brought him to power, or whether the March 11th training bombings in Madrid – which brought out the anti-war faction – played a more important role. He won the election without an absolute majority and ERC and IU duly enabled him to form a government – and then took him hostage.


he Socialists adopted the IU's proposal to set up a parliamentary commission to investigate the March train bombings but by December that year, everything surrounding the attacks was as murky as ever because the commission devoted itself to blackening the previous PP government, and especially José Maria Aznar. The commission was allowed to quietly fade away because by then the reform of the Catalan statute had taken centre stage.


he so-called autonomous statutes set out regional powers and every region negotiates its own statute with the central government. Zapatero had rashly promised the Catalans he would back any and all reforms they put forward for parliament’s approval. The ERC made sure that the statute which eventually landed on his desk in Madrid was just a step short of total independence from Spain. It met with bitter opposition from several quarters, including some elements in the Socialist party itself, and Zapatero was forced to do one of his famous U-turns. He finally convinced the Catalans to accept a watered-down version acceptable to parliament, for which the Catalan nationalists have never forgiven him.


omething similar happened with the IU – the favourite bee in their bonnet being the abolition of the monarchy and the resuscitation of the glorious Second Republic, to be called the Third this time around. The Historical Memory Law the IU proposed “to redress the wrongs of the Franco regime”made an awful lot of people see blood. Just one small example – the El Mundo newspaper began printing dozens of obituaries from relatives of people who had been assassinated by the Republicans during the civil war. One listed 14 male members

of the same family – the youngest being a 14-year-old. A toned-down version of the law was finally passed, but people still have the impression that it was the Socialist government who gave the descendants of Republicans assassinated by Franco the possibility of finding their bones and giving them a decent burial. In fact, approval was given for mass graves to be opened in 2000, when the PP was in power.


e'll never know how much these two initiatives influenced voters in the March 2008 general election but the IU lost five of the eight seats it won in 2004 and the ERC lost three seats, to be left with a pathetic two.


apatero won without an overall majority – again – and has had to rely on the Basque Nationalist Party and to a lesser extent the Galician, Balearic and Canary Island Nationalist parties to keep his current administration going.

n recent weeks, some of Europe’s wealthiest families have publicly asked their governments to tax them more so they can contribute to helping their countries’ rising debt problems. They began following the pied-piper call made by US billionaire Warren Buffet (pictured) who said rich Americans must be subjected to a higher tax rate to help their country’s economic woes. In Germany, a group of about the 50 richest people has asked Chancellor Angela Merkel to make them pay more taxes to close the gap between the wealthy and the poor. In France, L'Oreal heiress Lilliane Bettencourt and Total Oil company chief executive Christophe de Margerie joined a dozen others in signing a petition calling on the wealthy to make a "special contribution" to the government's finances. Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo told La Republica newspaper that it was "correct" that he should pay more in Italy because he is wealthy. So where do all the rich Spaniards stand on this? They aren’t saying.


here's nothing wrong in having to depend on another party to form a government but all the parties involved here have very specific interests and most of them couldn't give a damn about the “Spanish people”. The Catalans in particular view the Spanish as the enemy.


hat the minority parties, trade unions and “progressives” fear is that this cap on deficit spending will lead to a drastic slashing of social spending if the PP should win the next election. The PP has said it will respect basic social spending but unlike Zapatero it won’t go in for stupid schemes like the so-called baby cheques, which were nothing more than an attempt to buy votes, and had to be dropped because they were too costly.


here are many ways of tightening belts, and a lot of them won’t affect the working or middle classes, just those who’ve fed at the central, regional and local government troughs ever since Franco died.


he Cabinet has been mulling over whether to reintroduce the wealth tax it cancelled in 2008 when it determined that it was affecting mostly the middle class. Many rich people were skirting the tax law by putting their money in financial shelters and hedge funds abroad. But because the exemption was low, many middle-class and upper-middle-class citizens, who could not find ways to sidestep the law, were feeling the crunch. The proposal now is to raise the exemption to €1 million for each taxpayer. That would affect a lesser number of people than the previous wealth tax law. According to studies, 90 per cent of those who paid the wealth tax in 2007 will now be exempt. Nevertheless, it won’t affect the nation’s projected incoming revenue much. Four years ago, the government collected €2.1 billion from the wealth tax, and financial experts believe that revenue would only drop by 50 per cent under the new version. Twenty-five per cent of those who were covered by the wealth tax in 2007 – some 250,000 people – paid 70 per cent, or some €1.4 billion, of what was collected that year, according to figures by the Spanish tax agency AEAT.



n March 2008, the Socialist and the PP won 83.75 per cent of the vote between them, up from 79.3 per cent in the 2004 general election. The figures speak for themselves – a respectable majority of Spaniards prefer the two main parties. The Socialists have always complained that the PP is “obstructive” – it didn't support quickie divorces or the Historical Memory Law, or the original proposals to reform the Catalan statute (for obvious reasons). On the other hand, the Socialists rejected any and all – usually economyrelated – proposals put forward by the PP over the years, only to have to implement similar ones in the past year to cut the deficit. For example, Mariano Rajoy has been wanting to cap deficit for years.

easy for Rajoy.


eintroducing the wealth tax stands to become a major issue in the upcoming general elections. While at first saying that he didn’t want to “get into that debate,” Socialist candidate Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba announced on Monday that he would include this proposal in his manifesto. Under the plan, he projects to collect some €1.4 billion from the rich with an additional €1 billion coming from a tax hike he will impose on Spanish banks. It was a political gesture made to the Left, which believes that the Socialist party has abandoned its principles, and to the 15Movement, whose members have attacked the financial sector for not doing its part in keeping people from losing their homes. It is also the opposite of what Popular Party (PP) candidate Mariano Rajoy has been doing by asking his party’s regional leaders not to raise taxes as they struggle to contain spending and provide services in the cash-strapped governments they won in the May 22nd regional and local elections. In fact, Rajoy has said that he favours dropping taxes so that individuals will have more money on hand to deal with their day-to-day needs. But, with today’s economy, sticking to either of these pledges is not going to be

he banks have been very reluctant to pump what money they have on hand back into the economy and too much time has passed for the government to continue to ignore this. A banking tax is what might be needed to provide Rubalcaba with some financial backing for a job stimulus programme. However, what is urgently needed at this juncture is a complete restructuring of the economy. Spain must begin to look for new models to generate cash and forget about trying to reinvigorate a bygone construction industry. You can only build so much in a small country. Nevertheless, the government should help Spanish developers seek out more construction contracts outside of the country, aptly in North African nations such as war-torn Libya which is going to need a lot of rebuilding in the coming years. At the same time, the Spanish government should also continue to strengthen its export technology programme, concentrating on its commendable renewable energy and transportation industries. Promoting efficient renewable energy in emerging nations, such as wind power and solar heating, as well as pitching Spain's prizewinning high speed train network and quick reliable public transport systems, such as the efficient city coach lines in Madrid, are good ways to help get the Spanish economy going. Whoever wins the upcoming election knows that it won’t be easy to come up with all the answers to solve the country's economic needs. But taxing those who have the most is a good way to help many get back on their feet.

A general recall of Nurofen Plus was issued last week by the Gibraltar Health Authority due to fears that they could be contaminated with other drugs. The initial withdrawal was for specific batch numbers but was upgraded to all supplies once the UK had issued a total recall three days earlier. Anti-psychotics such as Seroquel XL used in the treatment of schizophrenia, manic depression and mania, and Neurontin used for the treatment of epilepsy were found in some packs of the drug in the UK and Northern Ireland. However, the drugs are clearly marked in their own blister pack within the boxes of Nurofen Plus. The alert was sent out late on Friday evening by fax from the MRHA in the UK to the chief pharmacist on Gibraltar and it was last Tuesday morning before the fax from the UK was noticed but should have been treated as a Class 1 emergency requiring immediate action at patient level including out-of-hours response. Producers of the drug

Reckitt Benckiser say that there is a possibility of sabotage which they are looking into but British Government health officials are also looking at the possibility that the pills could have been incorrectly repacked as part of a process known as “consolidation”, where left over medicines are put in new boxes by pharmacies, or where pharmaceuticals are returned to wholesalers. A statement from the company said: “The safety of our customers is paramount. Distribution of Nurofen Plus has been halted and we are working with the police on a formal investigation to find the person or persons responsible.” No-one so far has in any way been harmed. People who have bought Nurofen Plus in Gibraltar before Tuesday morning, 30th August are advised to check the packets and make sure ALL blister packs are labelled Nurofen Plus. No other Nurofen products are reported to have been affected. If you find any suspect blister packs, please return them to your pharmacy in Gibraltar.

The new term at Stagecoach Theatre Arts Schools is open to everyone aged 4 to 18 – you don’t have had previous experience to attend. The most important requirement is enthusiasm. There are no auditions and classes are held out of school hours and rotated, so that every student gets one class each of drama, dance and singing at each session. The school has been established since 1988 and has over 560 thriving branches worldwide offering weekly classes. It boasts Philip Schofield as its patron. from


The chairman for this coming year is Barbara Salisbury who has been a popular resident on the coast for many years. The new club year will commence on Tuesday 20th September 2011, with a flower arranging demonstration by Charles Barnard, NAFAS Area Demonstrator from London. This will take place from 3pm to 5pm at The Oak restaurant, Urb. Benamara, N340 km 168, Estepona 29680. This is the first in an exciting programme of events planned for the coming year when every month the club will be welcoming a NAFAS National or Area Demonstrator to show members how to achieve splendid displays of colour and texture. Estepona Floral Art Club is a very friendly club and they welcome visitors old and new and, of course, all their current members. Refreshments are available

The La Cala de Mijas Lions choir provided music and group participation. Santa and Mrs. Claus “wannabes” were spotted in festive dress and generous prizes were awarded to the raffle winners. A three-course Christmas dinner including all the traditionaltrimmings indulged the taste buds of the displaced-in-time guests. Ho, ho, ho – the Christmas spirit lives on all year round at Age Care!

A picnic with the Virgen de las Nieves

Written by Jean Joss

The annual El Burgo romeria takes place at the beginning of August when the pueblo's patron saint is carried in procession to an area known as La Fuensanta, some two kilometres away in the heart of woodland alongside the river. get cooler towards the autumn this area is well worth a visit, particularly if you enjoy nature and beautiful views. La Fuensanta lies at the foot of the Sierras de las Nieves – you can approach it either by driving the inland route through Coin, Alozaina and Yunquera, turning off before you reach El Burgo, or you can drive through Ronda and out to the other side of El Burgo – either way the scenery is spectacular and gives you a real sense of how vast and unspoiled huge tracts of Andalusia can be. Much of the land here once belonged to an old convent and the mill was first described in the land registry of the Marqués de la Ensenada (1751-1761), “The Convent of the Religiosas Descalzadas of the Order of Saint Francis in

the town of Ronda has an oil mill in the administrative area of Fuensanta that uses water from their spring, considered to have an annual value of 436 reals.” Subsequent owners were one Don Luis Corvó de Ronda (1850) and a Don Antonio Perea Fernández – today the buildings and surrounding area are state owned and designated a recreational area. You turn off the main road into a shady quiet track – it's not a made-up road but is quite passable even if you haven't got a fourwheel drive, my little Ford Focus had no problems, just keep your eyes open for the odd pothole. This winds through pine trees alongside a small river, a reserve for whatever fish lurk under the vegetation growing along its banks.

Further in is an old forest nursery after which you come to the Fuensanta mill, hidden away beyond a picnic area with tables and benches and barbecues (no fires allowed during the summer months). The mill is closed up now, apart from the inner courtyard where there are showers/toilets – always useful if you are out for the day! Around the back is a huge fig tree and a waterfall that seems to splash and crash all year round as it feeds round into the mill stream. At the front, nestled in a niche almost obscured by pink oleander bushes, is a ceramic plaque of the Virgen de las Nieves herself keeping a quiet watch over the visitors. This is a lovely spot for a picnic, though I confess we have never been on a weekend, preferring to go during the

week when it is less likely to be busy. If you drive past the mill you come to La Rejertilla, an activity centre offering camping, horse-riding, mountain biking and paintballing among other things, and up to Los Sauces, another camping/picnic site even further into the mountains. On the way the

crossroads are marked with old stone crosses topped with weathered carvings of the Virgen and Child. The tracks are clearly marked and there are way markers telling walkers how far they have to go. From the Puerto de la Mujer there are wonderful views across to el Mirador del Guarda Forestal on the Ronda road.

In Cahoots - art on display “In Cahoots” is a new painting exhibition by five local artists. The show portrays the artists' traditional and abstract impressions of Andalucía and Spain each using different techniques and materials – oils, fabrics, threads and embroidery, acrylics, coloured pencils, graphite and the more adventurous gouache. The paintings depict various aspects of Andalucian life, both indoors and outdoors, portraits and landscapes – showing the intriguing qualities of Spanish light.

Some are in strong bold separate colours, others in subtle shades all hugging closely together. The artists, Margit Björklund from Sweden, Elaine Carlton, Sally Huntington and Lavinia Croft from the UK and Ursula Williams from Peru obviously come from different walks of life but they have successfully joined together and assembled this impressive amalgamated exhibition of their work. The venue is El Jinete Venta (restaurant) and the

exhibition is on from 5th September until 7th November – new pictures being added on 3rd October. El Jinete (the horseman) is easy to find just outside La Cala de Mijas. To get there by car take the N340 coast road to La Cala de Mijas and turn inland on the road towards the golf course. It is open everyday except Friday from 1.00 pm until late. More details can be found through or call 678 179 416 or 952 666 950

Final Destination 5 By Steve Quale starring Nicholas D'Agosto, Emma Bell. Who would have thought it – eleven years on and the Final Destination franchise is still coming up with gory deaths that are beyond most peoples' imaginations! We all know what to expect by now. This time it's Sam (D'Agosto) who has the requisite premonition. As he and co-workers on their way to a works meeting sit in a bus about to cross a suspension bridge he forsees that the bridge is about to collapse. He manages to persuade seven

other folk on board to believe him and they flee the vehicle. Minutes later the bridge and everything on it plunges earthwards in the most spectacular manner – and that's the first reel. There are no other survivors, but we know that it won't be too long before the lucky eight start to pay the price for avoiding their destiny with Death. The basic plotline has been the same since the first movie, so the real interest lies in just how Death

catches up with the destiny dodgers. They were not meant to survive, but this movie introduces a new element – is it possible to cheat destiny if you can find a substitute to take your place? Hmm, well, what do you think? Can there be any more gruesome ways for Death to catch up with the survivors than have been explored in the first four movies of the franchise? Well, as it happens, yes. The fourth in the series was off form, but generally

the critics have been a lot kinder to the latest installment. Director Quale has worked with James Cameron and his use of 3D is effective, plus he ratchets up the suspense in a most satisfactory manner. There are some stomach churning moments and you may want to bury your head in your hands, but generally, if you have enjoyed the earlier movies then this will be a must-see. And if you are just catching up with the franchise this is as good a place to start as any.

sk a child to draw a witch and you’ll probably receive a picture of a haggard old woman with a pointed nose, warts and straggly hair. Not so your average movie witch! Even though Emma Thompson actually started out looking like a traditional witch in Nanny McPhee (2005), she soon blossomed into a beautiful, kindly faced woman, having won the charms of the feral children in her charge. Julie Andrews certainly didn’t appear as a haggard witch in Mary Poppins either but then she was never expressly labelled as a witch, just a woman with spell-making powers. Same thing eh?

lthough no Oscars were forthcoming for the film, the actors did receive several other awards. The film still has a good critical rating on the Rotten Tomatoes website and even after 24 years, is one of the best modern witch themed films.



owever, the best and most glamorous witches on film have to be the three single mums that form an unwitting coven in the 1987 film adaptation of John Updike’s novel, ‘The Witches of Eastwick”.

ith an all-star cast consisting of Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeifer and Cher, the film could be nothing less than glamorous really. Seduced by Jack Nicholson as the devilish but ultimately brow beaten Daryl, the three women find themselves empowered to take revenge on those members of their community that have wronged them but panic when they realize Daryl’s spells have led to a death in the community. Initially agreeing to stay away from each other, the three women decide the best form of defense is attack after Daryl visits upon them their worst nightmares. They gather materials and spell books to create a voodoo doll representing Daryl but as he starts to feel the onset of their spell, he rushes home to confront his three prodigies. In ensuing panic the wax doll is thrown into the fire and Daryl vanishes. At the end of the film you see the three yummy mummies sitting in Daryl’s mansion house with three new baby boys, courtesy of the outcast demon. As he

tries to communicate to the boys via the TV, the mums rush to turn off the screen, worried about his influence on their children.


he three actresses were superbly cast in their roles and Jack Nicholson could not have been either more menacing or more charming as the devil incarnate.


nother favourite witch film is the 1996 teen horror “The Craft”. Again, none of the witches in this film are ugly, disfigured or warty. Four young teenage girls each have their own emotional scars and baggage but when they come together to form a coven, they begin to possess powers that lead to death, anguish and infatuation amongst those around them. Fearing that fellow witch Nancy is taking things too far, Sarah decides to try to bind her friend from doing harm to herself or others. Although the spell doesn’t work it causes a rift between the girls that leaves Sarah experiencing nightmares and paranoia as the rest of the coven invade her dreams with swarms of insects and snakes. Angry that their friend has tried to put a spell on one of them, the three remaining witches then try to persuade Sarah to commit suicide before Nancy forces the issue by cutting Sarah’s wrists. Being the more powerful witch, Sarah eventually gains control, scaring off Bonnie and Rochelle and successfully binding Nancy from doing harm. The last scenes of the film show Nancy incarcerated in a mental hospital.


he moral of the story is “You may appear to be young, beautiful and wart free but if you use your powers inappropriately, the ugliness on the inside will surely come out”!


et that be a lesson to all supernatural teenagers and corrupt politicians.

by Cathy Stronach

This week clarity resumes and your intellect soars, things just start clicking into place and you are able to make sense of the complicated. If you are single there is a strong chance of attracting some romance in your life and if already taken, there could be some rekindling of the flames. Friends whom you haven’t seen for a while starting getting in touch, social invites increase and your popularity is sky high. Finance comes from an unexpected source. Communication is important this week especially when expressing yourself towards a loved one. Misunderstandings could occur and the last thing you want is crossed wires. Financial opportunities are on the horizon, make sure you stay focused and keep your eye on the ball. There is a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction to be had out of a project that is showing signs of coming to fruition. Keep juggling, Taurus. Listen intently to what others are saying to you this week as messages and insights can come from strange sources. Before rushing in where angels fear to tread it would be a good idea to use others as a sounding board and listen for their feedback, they could have an interesting perspective on an old problem. There is likely to be the odd flirtation and this will do your ego the world of good, this too could happen in an unusual setting. Work pressures are heightened and there is the possibility of having new responsibilities placed on your shoulders. A whole new system may need to be implemented, in which you play an important role. Romance is a distraction but a welcome one and the fires will be hotting up in this area of your life. Travel is likely - even if it is a short journey, it will be memorable and unforgettable in some way. Keep a tight hold on your finances.

Kym’s Kitchen don’t have to be a chef!

There are loads of tomatoes about in the garden and in the shops right now so, while they last, why not make the best of them? This recipe can also be made and put in the freezer. Double wrap it in foil and the pie will last up to three months. You can then cook it from frozen in a 200ºC oven for around half an hour.

Tomato Pie Ingredients: ● 1 (9 inch) deep-dish pie crust made in advance and cooled, or shop bought ● 4 large tomatoes, peeled and sliced ● 20gr chopped fresh basil ● 3 salad onions, (spring onions or scallions) thinly sliced ● 225gr bacon - cooked, drained, and chopped ● 3 cloves garlic, crushed ● 2gr dried oregano ● 2gr finely chopped red pepper

Someone you care about could be trying to tell you something - make sure that you take the time to listen, it could be important. Often it takes viewing things from several different angles before you can get the total picture as to why something may be happening. You could be involved with people who are not usually your type and go against the grain - these people can become rd September 23 like teachers who show you another part of yourself. nd October 22


October 23rd November 21st

Financial concerns reign supreme this month and you will spend a lot of time coming up with financial ideas to plan for the future. Others are depending upon you for your expertise and their happiness is directly related to the work that you do. People are drawn to you like a magnet and there will be possibilities to expand your friendship base and make new ones. You may be concerned about a friend, let them know how you feel.

SAGITTARIUS Enlightening insights may come your way from your partner or a committed other in your life. There is a fine line between love and pain but it is your sense of humour that bridges the gap perfectly. There could be a situation that is slightly pressurised and something reaches breaking point. You always have a way of landing on your feet and know that you will find a way to do it again nd November 22 December 21st – this will remind you of how strong your really are.

CAPRICORN Be careful not to push yourself too hard, Capricorn, this could lower your vitality and leave you feeling a bit drained. There is a lot going on still and things are still not totally sorted in one area of your life and this can leave you feeling uptight and stressed. There are those around who are just waiting to be asked and would love to give you a hand or a bit of support, so “ask and you shall nd December 22 receive” seems to be the message. th January 19

February 19th March 20th

If there is a will there is a way – or so they say. Something that you desire keeps you moving in a steady direction towards your goal – the inner restlessness that you are feeling is trying to trip you up as you are essentially in a party mood. Keep focused and make sure that you follow through, you have a lot of creativity within that is seeking an expression, so these are the days when what you put your mind to, you can really make it count.

Perhaps you are on the edge of success but you don’t realise how close you are. Things are changing and a pathway is about to open up, carving a promise for the future. All you have to do is act as if you are there. Your career gets a big push from those around you and you may be just a bit surprised by all the attention you are now getting, although you will never let this on outwardly. There is a strong possibility of travel and this could lead to a romantic experience.

Not a woodentop The phenomenon of Social Networking sites has been surprising to some and a lifestyle necessity to others. Musician Justin Timberlake has been so impressed with social networking and the aid to selling records that they have become that he has bought into MySpace. He says that the site will be a platform for young, up-andcoming musicians to get their work out in the public domain without having to find record labels who will back them. He added: “ I

Greatest person ever? After a bizarre performance of David Bowies “Life On Mars” and a scathing opinion from X-Factor judge Gary Barlow, the weird and wonderful David Wilder, 42, has said that he is “the greatest person ever” to have been on the show! The busker got four “yes’s” on Saturday to carry on in the show adding that taking part in it should be a massive boost to his singing career.

Friday nights are slob by the telly nights... Strictly is back! Friday nights are going to be back to staying in until the end of the new Strictly Come Dancing shows finish. From Friday September 30th, millions of people will be glued to the screen to see who is a natural dancer and who looks a bit like a yellow Easter chicken that’s just come out of it’s shell! This season’s line-up of stars about to put themselves through some

serious exercise include 60s pop star Lulu (not fair really as she’s always kept herself in shape – remember “Shout!”), Harry Judd – heart-throb from band McFly who famously won a recent spot dancing with Ola Jordan for Children In Need, ITV sports presenter Dan Lob, soap Waterloo Road’s Chelsee Healey, exEastender Anita Dobson – she must be fit from dancing

It simply doesn’t work without them. Oh yes, and Aussie judge Craig Revel-Horwood became a British citizen last weekend. Now then, where’s my slippers and cocoa!...

A fab new clothing shop now open in Alhaurin There’s a new concept for buying fashionable clothes or something for that special occasion in Alhaurin el Grande. The Wardrobe opened to great reviews from those browsing round the shop last week.

Owner Sue Hart (pictured below left) has opened the shop – selling new and “as new” ladies clothing – to offer quality styles at a fraction of the price you would normally pay. There are designer brands with dresses, skirts, trousers, tops, shoes and handbags, plus jewellery, underwear from La Seza and M&S and cosmetics. Sue has been in the retail trade all her working life, starting in cosmetics with Elizabeth Arden followed by Estée Lauder whom she worked with for 18 years, training with House Of Fraser and Beattie’s and becoming top sales girl in the Midlands. She met Mrs Estée

Lauder and was promoted to their training executive for the Midlands. She went to South Africa and came back with her two lovely daughters, Jemma and Victoria and opened a children’s As New shop back in the Midlands which was very successful. Sue came to Spain and has lived in Alhaurin el Grande for 12 years with husband Sid and the girls. She said that she has always felt that the area needed a Ladies As New Shop. We all have a wardrobe where we have good quality, hardly worn clothes so why not make something from them? Take them along to The Wardrobe and Sue will put them in her shop to sell and take a commission from

whatever they are sold for. Clothes must be clean and of a good quality but all the items you’ve grown out of or just won’t wear again could make you money and be a fabulous find for someone else. You can find The Wardrobe on Calle Gerald Brennan nº 46 in Alhaurin el Grande, opposite Supersol. Just walk through to the back of Papeleria Martin and you’ll find The Wardrobe. The shop is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am – 2pm every day. For more information, call Sue Hart on 952 595 514 or 669 514 733 Pop in, have a browse and pick up a bargain – I bought some fabulous designer leather boots for just €40, two pairs of brilliant quality trousers for

€6 a pair and a Morgan shirt for just €10! And the Karen Millen dress below was just €30 but I would need to diet more to get into it! By Kym Wickham

When minor medical issues like nosebleeds, insect stings, or dandruff crop up, chances are you'll find effective – if surprising – fixes for what ails you in your medicine cabinet. Here are several common household items that all do double duty, saving you a trip to the pharmacy – and cash in the process! • Antacid tablets are for heartburn, the effervescent type with sodium bicarbonate helps to neutralise the acid that causes painful heartburn symptoms. But try it for soothing insect bites – antacid formulations such as AlkaSeltzer contain aspirin, an anaesthetic that can help ease the sting and itch of insect bites. Make a paste with a crushed antacid tablet, a pinch of oatmeal (also a skin soother), and water and apply it to the skin. Results are immediate – and this DIY formula has a healing bonus that other anti-itch salves lack because it has no dehydrating side effects, unlike Calamine lotion which contains zinc oxide, that can be drying to the skin. • Mouthwash is for freshening breath but it can also prevent athlete's foot. To prevent athlete's foot, soak a cotton ball with alcohol mouthwash and swab the bottoms of your feet and between toes after every shower. The high alcohol content of traditional mouthwash helps ward off fungal infections. • Baking soda is recommended by many dentists to help remove superficial stains from enamel, making teeth appear whiter. It also prevents bad breath and gets rid of plaque embedded in the area between the teeth and gums. But used topically, baking soda takes the sting out of sunburn and minimises the itch and discomfort caused by a variety of skin conditions,

including eczema, prickly heat, and poison ivy. To get relief, place a cup of baking soda under a running bath tap so it dissolves completely, and then soak in the water for about 30 minutes.

none of these measures works, see a health care provider for treatment. • Witch hazel helps fight acne by drying out excess oil in the skin. Because it contains alcohol, witch hazel can help kill the bacteria that cause infection and lead to breakouts. Because witch hazel is a natural astringent, it is a primary ingredient in many haemorrhoid wipes and medicated pads. Used alone, witch hazel may dry out delicate tissue, so also apply a cream, such as Vaseline or A+D original ointment, to moisturise the area. • Aloe vera applied to first- and second-degree burns speeds the healing because it contains vitamins as well as amino acids that help repair damaged tissues. Several compounds found in aloe vera work together to decrease or prevent inflammation and control pain and a recent study found that canker sore sufferers who applied aloe vera gel healed about 50% faster than those who didn't.

• Nasal spray does more than just ease congestion – it can also stop nosebleeds. Most nosebleeds can be stopped by simply pinching the nose for 10 to 20 minutes, but if yours persists, nasal spray may do the trick. About two-thirds of people who visit an emergency room for a persistent nosebleed are successfully treated with oxymetazoline, the decongestant found in common over-the-counter nasal sprays. To stop the bleeding, tilt your head forward and clear your nose by blowing out any clots (this may increase bleeding for a few seconds). Inhale through your nose while spraying oxymetazoline into the affected nostril(s), and then pinch the soft part of your nose closed. Maintain pressure for 10 full minutes. If the bleeding hasn't stopped, continue pinching for another 10 minutes. If

often applied topically for acne and athlete's foot but it also gets rid of dandruff. An American study found that people who used a shampoo with 5% tea tree oil reduced their dandruff 41% and significantly improved the itchiness and greasiness of their scalp. It can also be added in small amounts to your own shampoo to get a similar effect. Just use it sparingly, no more than a few drops per bottle, to prevent overdrying of your scalp. • Yoghurt helps foster healthy digestion and keep you regular but it can also be used to prevent gum disease. A Japanese study found that adults who consume 55g of yoghurt per day have significantly fewer markers of periodontal disease than those who don't include this food in their diets. That's because the lactic acid in yoghurt helps protect their gums from the harmful bacteria that cause this chronic

Next is of course the Miramar petrol station. On the Carretera de Mijas one will find the GALP petrol station and its shop called Tangerina (like all of them). Other GALP stations are in Los Pacos, Fuengirola, taking the

British Vice Consul You may be interested to know of some important changes which are about to take place. As from September 1st 2011 all passports processed by the Madrid Regional Passport Centre will be printed in the UK and dispatched from there directly to the customer. This is part of a wider project which aims to repatriate all passport work to the UK by 01.04.2013. The changes are explained on the website. /help-for-britishnationals/passports/how-toapply/spain The basic message is that until

I realise that you have many British readers who enquire

For the fourth time in almost as many weeks the town water pipe is leaking all down the camino hill in La Carreta. Having had some areas with no water at all for six weeks recently, it seems to me that this situation is absolutely barking. Every so often we have to pay for the hill to be redone due to the amount of heavy lorries people have going up and down to do illegal building – and yes, I’m talking about all nationalities – but this time it’s being washed away by the river of water going down it. Funny thing is that the fontanera from the town hall also lives down there so, why he can’t fix it, who knows? Maybe it’s the latest job creation scheme and a neighbour informed me this morning that they will repair

Editor says: Thanks for this. I don’t see why anybody should pay over the odds for fuel and this week, Gibraltar’s National Week, Morrisons are taking 6 pence a litre off if you spend £50 in their store!

about passports and that it’s important to be aware of any significant changes. Editor says: I have spoken with the consulate and the idea is that this should cut down considerably on the possibility of identity theft once everything is done from one source which is obviously a good thing. However, Pete from Woody’s in Los Boliches will still be there to help you out with any renewals and I always get him to do mine – much more reliable than doing it yourself and finding your photo is rejected for one reason or another!

the town pipes – which is what they are before they get to our meters – if we pay between two and three thousand euros! She also told me that they intend to cut our water off after Thursday so I shall be going home this evening to make sure all the washing’s done and that we have plenty in the tank and stored in bottles in case they cut us off for the six weeks the people above us were off for. It can’t be that the pipes are full of “cal” as they told the people before as they’ve already had the pipes repaired on a number of occasions and one would think that, if they had any intelligence at all, they would have noticed then if the pipes were bad. Oh for a plumber who knows what he’s doing! All it takes is a couple of pairs of Stilsons, a bit of pipe and

April 2013, customers from the countries we serve will continue to apply to Madrid. They will receive their new passport directly from the UK while any supporting documentation will be returned to them from Madrid. There is a flat courier fee of €24 which covers both shipments. It is expected that newly printed passports will be dispatched from the UK within 48 hours of the moment the application is validated. The new service has been rolled out in five other regions and, to date, is working well.

Astronomy or Astrology? I wish I had a pound for every time someone has asked me if I was an astrologer!


stronomy and astrology are two different sides of the same coin but are really as different as heads or tails. Everybody at some time or another has read their ‘stars’ in the newspapers and we are all familiar with our own individual star signs be they Virgo, Gemini, Taurus, Leo etc. But how many people realise that these are all real constellations in the sky?


ince the beginning of time humans have looked up at the moon, planets and stars and with no better understanding or explanation as to what they could possibly be they became wrapped in stories and myths. It was also presumed that they must have some supernatural influence on people’s lives. Probably one of the first things that ancient man noticed about the stars what that at different times of the year as the earth went around the sun different stars were visible. And that the sun, the moon plus the five ‘wandering stars’ – which we now know are planets– moved across the sky in a very narrow band. This narrow band is called the ecliptic and with super imagination twelve different constellations were picked out inside the ecliptic and were christened the zodiac. Although I must say that most of them do need a great deal of imagination to recognise what they are meant to represent!


t was believed that where the sun was in relation to the signs of the zodiac on the day that you were born would have an influence on your personal traits and how your life would pan out. Also that the position of the stars could have an outcome on events that were about to happen. And so people who could study the movements of the stars and planets became in great demand by rulers of nations to help them predict forthcoming events. Virtually every nation had their own Royal Astrologer on hand to help with important decisions. Many historical leaders from Alexander the Great to Herr Hitler relied heavily on astrology for their forward planning. And when Halley’s comet appeared in 1066 it

was deemed to be a clear omen to William to set about on his conquest of Britain. Well you win some you lose some!


ome astrologers expanded on their work and studied the sky with great accuracy and so serious astronomy was born, as in-depth complicated mathematical calculations were needed to measure the movements of the moon or a certain planet for a particular date. Today the Astronomer Royal has replaced the Royal Astrologer and Martin Rees now fills that position in the UK.


or people who attach importance to their own individual birth signs then unfortunately there is some bad news for you. The original signs of the zodiac and the dates they are meant to cover were invented thousands of years ago. But because of movements in the earth’s orbit known as precession then the star sign that you believe is yours is almost certainly NOT the constellation where the sun was on the day you were born. Whenever I hold a star party I always end the evening by asking folk for their date of birth and which star sign they think is theirs. Then by using a computer program showing exactly where the sun was on the day that they were born I am able to tell them what their true star sign really is. If anyone would like to know his or her true star sign then simply email your birth date to me at

Citroen to unveil futuristic minivan Citroen will present the futuristic Tubik concept, a nine-seat hybrid minivan, at this month's Frankfurt auto show. The brand says the study is based on the idea that travel should be fun.The concept offers passengers a lounge-style area behind the driving compartment, with modular seating that can be arranged centrally around a table or moved to take advantage of a large multimedia screen.''dedicated to comfort and relaxation,'' Citroen says.

Lorenzo on cruise control MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo made it three wins for the season with a dominant performance at the Misano San Marino MotoGP.

The Yamaha star then absorbed constant pressure from the Repsol Honda rider for the first half of the race – after which Stoner began unexpectedly dropping back. Stoner later revealed that he was simply physically exhausted – not having slept well since last Sunday's Indianapolis round – and just didn't have the strength to push as hard as he wished. Lorenzo remained in total control to the chequered flag to win his first race since Mugello by 7.299sec and reduce Stoner's points lead from 44 to 35 with five

rounds to go.

The nine-point change was due to Dani Pedrosa finishing in second, ahead of the tiring Stoner. Third on the grid Pedrosa had dropped back from the leading pair during the first half of the race. But Stoner's loss of pace allowed Pedrosa to close quickly on the Australian and he wasted no time in drafting past along the back straight with six laps to go. Stoner – who has won seven races this season,

including the previous three events – was left to collect

the final podium place, 11.967sec behind the victorious Lorenzo. The highlight of the closing stages was a thrilling three-way fight between Marco Simoncelli, Andrea Dovizioso and Ben Spies for fourth, after they had dropped Rossi. Repsol rider Dovizioso tried every trick in the book to pass fellow Italian Simoncelli, but the Gresini Honda star thwarted his every effort. The trio were

David Cameron welcomes two millionth MINI e new Jaguar 12MY is on sale now The fastest and most efficient production Jaguars ever created are now available. The new XF 2.2, capable of travelling in excess of 800miles on a single tank of diesel while emitting just 149 g/km of CO2 is joined by the XKR-S – a car that can accelerate from rest to 100 mph in 8.7 seconds before reaching an electronically limited 186 mph. Each model forms part of the new Jaguar

12MY programme of ongoing upgrades and improvements that sees the XF take on an elegant new look. The new 12MY range is launched at an exciting time for Jaguar as it prepares to unveil the next stage in its bold, productled strategy for growth at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The two millionth MINI was driven off the production line last week at Plant Oxford by Prime Minister David Cameron. Of the two million, more than 1.5 million MINI’s have been exported to customers in more than 90 countries around the world, from Australia to Venezuela. Prime Minister David Cameron said: “It’s a real privilege to drive this true British icon off the production line today. The 2 millionth MINI to be made here in Oxford is a fantastic symbol of the UK’s strength in the global automotive industry and a great British manufacturing success story.

side-by-side into a braking zone on the final lap, but it was Simoncelli who held his line and regained fourth on the exit. The #58 took fourth by 0.037sec from Dovizioso, with Factory Yamaha rider Ben Spies, seventh early in the race, just 0.702sec further behind Colin Edwards has confirmed he will leave the Tech 3 Yamaha team to ride for newcomers Forward Racing next year.

Fun at the feria In spite of heavy thunder showers in the morning, crowds turned out in Ronda on the first day of the Pedro Romero feria. Among the attractions was a display by SOL Classic Car Club who were given permission to park at the bull ring – next to the carriage pulled by a single horse power (a stocky, spotted, four-legged character known as Bocholo!). For several hours the locals and visitors enjoyed being

photographed next to their favourite models, then it was time for the first of the bull fights, so the cars left the area to fans of this long-standing Ronda tradition! Normal Club activities begin again this month with a club night dinner and a car run, see the website and the blog at for details. By Jean Joss

The departure of the 37year-old leaves a space alongside British rider Cal Crutchlow in the Tech 3 garage, with Bradley Smith and Eugene Laverty both linked with the space.

Mo Farah earns his gold Farah, who won the silver medal in the 10,000m, held off the challenge of Bernard Lagat of the United States and Ethiopia's Imane Merga, to win in 13 minutes, 23.36 seconds, in one of the best races seen at the championships. "I can't quite believe it," Farah said afterwards. "I pictured the 10k on the last lap thinking, I came so close then I'm not going to let anyone pass me." Farah, has made huge sacrifices in his quest to become one of GB’s finest long distance runners spending months training with the Kenyans at altitude, and moving with his family to Oregon at the start of the year to be coached by Alberto Salazar. He kept himself out of trouble at the back of the pack for the first 2,000m in a slow-paced race. A break from Saudi Arabian Hussain Jamaan Alhamdah stretched the pack but Farah moved up through the field to sit on his shoulder as the race entered the final kilometre. Lagat tracked Farah throughout the second half of the race, but was unable to match his victory over

this distance in 2007 and had to settle for a second successive silver. Farah, who covered the final 400m in 52.87 seconds to become the first British world champion over the distance, added: "It's been hard work and a lot of sacrifices and I have to thank so many people who've been behind me. "But you can't get carried away. It's a long way (to the London 2012 Olympics). The aim is to stay injury free. Anything can happen in long distance."

Local cricket returns

The club’s mission statement is “Cricket 4 All”. This means that whatever your age or ability there is a game of cricket waiting for you. Currently ages range from 13 to Bus Pass and beyond with seven different nationalities. We are also committed to developing youth and people that have never played the game before ... so there is no excuse! Why not get rid of your partner for the day? A lot of work has been done on and off the pitch. The wicket has been expertly turned 90 degrees so that the winter sun doesn't affect the batsmens' eyes. A big thank you to David Cooper and his Grass Europa team for doing such a professional job. No

Bjorn again Denmark's Thomas Bjorn clinched back-to-back titles with victory at the European Masters in Switzerland. The 40-yearold two-time Ryder Cup star, who won last week's event at Gleneagles, shot a final-round of 62 to win by four shots at Crans-surSierre. Germany's Martin Kaymer was second on 16 under with Rory McIlroy, Jamie Donaldson and Jaco van Zyl tied for third one shot further back. England's world number two Lee Westwood finished tied for sixth on 14 under. Bjorn arrived in Switzerland in good form having triumphed in a fiveman play-off at the Johnnie Walker Championship in Scotland. Beginning the day three shots behind

With the new season getting underway on Sunday 11th September. After a very short break cricket returns again next Sunday to the Cartama Oval with the newly formed local side named as Costa del Sol Cricket Club.

Farah’s tactics this time were spot on, saving his kick until the final 200 metres after gradually increasing the pace. It’s hard to say “if only” after winning silver and gold, but it could have so easily been double gold if Farah had used these tactics in the 10,000m. He has an incredible turn of speed and is now quite rightly Nº 1 in the world. Who would have thought that a couple of years ago? Triple jump defending champion Phillips Idowu was pipped to gold by

Christian Taylor. Idowu jumped a season's best 17.70m in the third round to stretch his lead in the triple jump, but American Taylor responded with a 17.96m effort. And that proved the winning leap as Idowu, who improved to 17.77m in the fourth round, was unable to jump further in his final two attempts and he had to settle for silver. "It wasn't my day," said the 2009 world champion. "I felt I had that distance in my legs but it never came. "I jumped two seasons’ best but it wasn't enough. Hopefully I can do it at next year’s Olympics and get gold.”

Last Friday saw the completion of the Annual Benalmadena v Lauro Challenge Cup Competition.

Friday Benalmadena needed to win by 5 games to 2 to take the Trophy. After 9 ends the scores were very

overnight leader Jamie Donaldson, the Danish veteran started slowly, sinking pars in the first three holes before a bogey on the fourth. But he followed that up with four straight birdies and added another at the 11th to race ahead. A second bogey came on the 12th, but he sank a 12-foot putt for eagle at the par-five 15th and then nailed two eight-foot putts in the closing par fours to ease to his third victory of the season. Bjorn, who also won in Qatar in February has now won 13 times on the European Tour stretching back to 1996, but he has had a somewhat rollercoaster career, admitting to "fighting demons" after he lost the 2003 Open from three ahead with four to play.

Jose Cobo climbs into lead Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins are second and third respectively in the overall standings after Juan José Cobo (Geox) climbed to victory on an epic stage 15 of the Vuelta a España to take the leader's red jersey on Sunday. Cobo made his move with just under seven kilometres remaining on the fearsome final climb of the Alto de L'Angliru(pictured below). That 12.5km ascent had an average gradient of over 10%, with ramps of up to 23.5% in places, and not surprisingly it splintered the field – with even two television motorbikes struggling to cope with the extreme steepness of the slopes.

Monday was a well earned rest day in the tour with stage 16 on Tuesday heading to the Basque region of Spain. Report courtesy of

Kenteris and anou acquitted An Athens appeals court has acquitted Greek sprinters Costas Kenteris and Katerina Thanou of faking a motorcycle crash in 2004. A panel of three judges ruled there was a lack of evidence to prove the pair staged the crash to avoid a doping test on the eve of the Athens Olympics. The two had been found guilty of perjury in May. A 33-month suspended sentence against coach Christos Tzekos for possessing banned substances was reduced.

Storms ahead for Andy Murray At the time of going to press Andy Murray’s US Open plans could have been thrown into turmoil with a horrendous spell of wet weather forecast to hit New York. US Open chiefs were last night on the verge of cancelling today's afternoon session with heavy rain and thunderstorms set to hit Flushing Meadow. But, following a two-hour meeting, they instead opted to front-load their schedule in an effort to get the fourth round completed with Murray, weather permitting, first up on Arthur Ashe stadium at 11am (4pm UK time) against Donald Young. Murray admits he's out for revenge against Young as he attempts to erase the painful memories of his darkest hour this season. The British No.1 takes on the American youngster for a place in the quarter-final of the US Open but there is additional motivation for him. Murray was at his lowest ebb when he suffered back-to-back defeats against

Donald Young celebrates his victory over No. 14 Stanislas Wawrinka.

Young and Alex Bogomolov jnr at Indian Wells and Miami in the wake of his crushing Australian Open final hammering at the hands of Serbian ace Djokovic. Young was then ranked No143 in the world.

Young, now ranked 84, has spent most of his young life struggling under the pressure of being the next great American hope. At 15, he was the best junior in the world and he found himself surrounded by agents, sponsors and members of the US Tennis Association. He was bombarded with wild cards into high-profile professional tournaments in the hope he would sweep all before him in his push to the top. But instead, he was beaten week-in, and weekout and his confidence was in tatters. It is only now, aged 22, that he is beginning to show signs he could make a name for himself.

World number five Kaymer was set to be the leading player in captain Jean van de Velde's Continental team. The biennial matchplay competition, named in Seve Ballesteros' honour, sees Continental Europe play Great Britain and Ireland over four days.

ian Bell looking forward to number four spot England's Ian Bell is relishing his opportunity to move up the batting order in the ODI series against India in Kevin Pietersen's absence. The Warwickshire batsman stepped up from number five to deputise at number three for the injured Jonathan Trott in the last two Tests. And, with Pietersen rested, Bell has now been asked to operate at number four at the Rose Bowl. Bell said: "I'm willing to do whatever the team needs me to do." He added: "At the end of the day the team comes first and I'll bat wherever.”
