'Most wanted' nabbed naked in his panic room

Mark Lilley, one of Britain's most wanted fugitives, was caught by Spanish police and officers from the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) hiding naked in a panic room at his villa in Alhaurin de la Torre on Saturday. Lilley, 41, of Warrington, went on the run in 2000 when he skipped bail during a trial for drug trafficking.

Various narcotics were discovered in the home of his then-girlfriend, who was sentenced to five years in prison.

One of Lilley’s business partners was also detained a few months later in relation to the crime. Both admitted to being involved in the transport and trafficking of drugs, and affirmed that Lilley was in charge of the network. Lilley denied the charges but he was indicted nonetheless, and the trial began in February 2000. He was released on bail and disappeared two months later. The trial continued without him. He was convicted in his absence and sentenced to 23 years in prison. During the operation to capture Lilley, 40 armed officers climb over a gate at his home, before smashing through his front door with a battering ram. They found Lilley in a panic room concealed behind a wardrobe in his bedroom. Inside the panic room, Lilley had a computer from which he could control security cameras that surrounded the outside of the house and monitor everything that was going on outside.

According to police, he had altered his appearance and become an expert in vale tudo (anything goes) – a Brazilian martial arts form that permits any type of contact.

A police helicopter hovered above the villa in the Alhaurin de la Torre area during the raid. Dave Allen, head of the fugitives unit at Soca, said: "Lilley was a dangerous man with access to firearms. He had evaded capture for a long time by moving around Spain and using false identities. Now he's behind bars where he belongs and extradition proceedings are under way. "My message for other fugitives on the run is a simple one: we will hunt you down and you will face justice for your crimes."

Roger Critchell, director of operations at Crimestoppers, said: "We are extremely relieved that this dangerous drug dealer has been arrested and will be made to face justice. This latest capture brings the total number of suspects located as part of Operation Captura to 51 out of 65. CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

Flamenco weekend

“Rod Stewart” returns

Monda is hosting its annual Flamenco festival with traditional music, song and dancing on Friday and Saturday.

The Olive Tree in Coin - the inland music venue - is again hosting a Rod Stewart tribute. This was a very popular night the last time so book your tickets now.


12th and 13th July. See the Ayuntamiento website: for details.

Thursday July 18th at The Olive Tree, Avenida Maria Zambrano 17. See page 16 for details of this and other events.

My word, isn’t it hot! A couple of weeks ago we were all still moaning that it was dull, overcast and chilly and, where was our sun? Now it’s hazy, damp and piggin’ hot! If there’s a breeze about it’s really quite pleasant but, last Friday I was helping to take apart some tables etc and it was really sticky with no air so it wasn’t pleasant at all. We had a bad time on Saturday when our old lady dog, who was 16 years old (that’s 116 years old in people years) died. Posh Paws, as she was called because she had white “gloves” on her front paws, her mother and brother were all dumped in our area and she was found filthy and covered in muck in a ditch at around eight weeks old. However, she certainly landed on her paws and was a much loved girl for the rest of her life. There are a few things to enjoy in the next few weeks at the local establishments. The Olive Tree up in Coin has a Robbie Williams Tribute tomorrow (Thursday) night that is free entry, and then on Thursday 18th there is a Rod Stewart Tribute, The



Return of the Mod, a welcome return as he was so popular the last time. Then don’t forget that the Manhattan Show Bar, Buzby’s and Mojito’s have live entertainment every night plus all the live music happening at Pógs. On Saturday 27th, La Risa at Lauro Golf has their 5th birthday party! A brilliant buffet, live music and, of course my favourite, birthday cupcakes will be the order of the night. Tickets are available now. For all these venues have a look at our Out and About section (pages 16,17,18 and 19) for more information.

"We would like to thank the public for all their support and information so far, but also remind them that there are still 14 dangerous individuals we still need to locate and Crimestoppers will not rest until we find them. Please tell us what you know, not who you are." A number of local groups were involved in the raid, in addition to Soca. These were the Fugitive Localisation Team, the Costa del Sol Team for Special Response to Organised Crime, the Narcotics and International Relations

National News Rajoy stays silent on scandal Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy defended his government's reforms on Sunday, pointing out that green shoots were starting to appear. He told a meeting of the FAES think-tank founded by former PM Jose Maria Aznar: “We cannot say as in other times that Spain is doing well, but we can say that it is doing better and that we are heading in the right direction.” He added: “We are much better than last year, but much worse than in July of the year 2015; that it is our aim, and you can be sure that we are going to achieve it.” But speaking in presence Sr Aznar – recently criticised successor’s policies

demanded tax cuts – Rajoy ignored the Barcenas corruption scandal after new details came to light on Sunday.

In an interview conducted before he was remanded in custody late last month, former Partido Popular treasurer Luis Bárcenas told El Mundo newspaper that the party had been illegally financing itself for at least the last 20 years, receiving cash donations from construction companies and other firms who were later awarded government contracts.

the who his and

Meanwhile, a High Court judge has ordered that Bárcenas, who is involved in several

corruption scandals, must come up with €43.2 million by the end of this week to cover civil liabilities should he be found guilty in the Gürtel kickbacksfor-contracts case. However, this bail will not get him out of preventive custody, since Judge Pablo Ruz feels there is a strong possibility that Bárcenas might try to skip the country.

Repsol admit lowering King spent inheritance to pay father’s debts prices on Mondays In response to accusations by the United Left (IU, Izquierda Unida) that King Juan Carlos had the €2 million left to him by his father in a Swiss bank account, the Royal Household said in a statement last week that the money was used to pay “debts and other obligations” that were left by his parents.

The oil and gas company Repsol has finally admitted that the prices at their pumps are lower on Mondays. However, the company denied that this practice has anything to do with the fact that this is the day when official statistics regarding prices are registered but was part of its "commercial strategy".

The National Energy Commission has suspected for some time that prices were lowered on Monday to make petrol look cheaper than it is on average. But according to a statement released by the company, Repsol has been trying to “reduce the cost of petrol on Monday, which is the day when most professionals within the transport sector fill their tanks ahead of a week of activity” – something that has never been advertised. The statement came

just two weeks after the National Competition Commission launched an investigation into possible anti-competitive practices in the sector, which included raids on the headquarters of several oil firms. Repsol announced last week that it would be selling petrol at its lowest prices on Fridays during July and August. The company said: “The measure will be applied to the months of the year with the highest number

of trips made by private vehicles on the highways.” The cheaper price will apply to all of the group’s brands in Spain, which includes Repsol, Campsa and Petronor. For the petrol stations they own directly, which number 2,522, the cheaper price will be obligatory.

At the remainder, which are franchises, Repsol said it will leave the choice up to each petrol station as to which prices to apply.

It added that the king has not had a Swiss bank account since 1995. Palace officials said the money was never brought to Spain. Don Juan de Borbón, the king's father, died in 1993.

He had lived in exile in Italy and Portugal since his father, King Ferdinand XIII, left the country in April 1931, after the Second Republic was

declared. General Franco never allowed him back, considering him "too liberal" and made the then Prince Juan Carlos his heir in 1969. Don Juan formally renounced his right to the throne in May 1977, 18 months after Parliament had declared his son king

after Franco's death in November 1975.

Don Juan died of cancer on April 1st, 1993, in the University Clinic at Pamplona, Navarre, aged 79. He was buried in El Escorial, where all of Spain's monarchs are buried.

Nine die in bus crash Nine people were killed and 20 were injured – six of them seriously – when the bus they were travelling in careened off the road and overturned near Avila in Castilla-Leon on Monday morning. The entire right side of the bus was ripped open.

Rescue services worked for several hours to free passengers trapped in the wreckage. Of the 34 people on the bus, only the driver, aged 54, escaped injury. He admitted to the police that he had nodded off for a few seconds and faces charges of involuntary manslaughter. Police said he had not been exceeding the speed

limit and passed a breathalyser test. The regional government of Castilla-Leon decreed three days of official mourning .

It was the most serious bus accident since 2008

when a coach carrying Finnish tourists to Malaga airport was sideswiped by an SUV travelling well over the speed limit. In that incident nine passengers were killed and 22 were seriously injured.

Nation’s richest man loses tax battle Spain's richest man, Amancio Ortega, will have to pay €33 million in back taxes for the years 2001 to 2003 after the Supreme Court rejected his final appeal in his dispute with the tax men.

The judges said the law

regarding the taxes filed by Ortega, founder of Zara and former chairman of Inditex, had been misinterpreted, but did not imply fraud or any attempt at concealment.

Tax auditors in Galicia had concluded that "this

was a situation where the rules were abused". Ortega appealed the ruling before the Galician regional High Court, which determined in March 2011 that he owed €32,789, a decision that was upheld by the Supreme Court.

Messi to settle tax fraud case

The first casualty at Pamplona's annual running of the bulls fiesta on Sunday was Briton John Bennett, 44, from Wolverhampton, when he fell and was stepped on by runners as a lone bull turned on them and provoked panic.

Mr Bennett said he nearly suffocated when more than a dozen runners

ended up in a heap on top of him. It happened towards the end of the first of eight morning runs at the festival immortalised in Ernest Hemingway's novel, The Sun Also Rises. Mr Bennett suffered knee injuries and was treated at the local hospital. Doctors said he was lucky not to have suffered broken bones. Mr Bennett had travelled to the fiesta with

four friends. He told reporters: "It was the first time I've run and it will be the last. My wife knew I was coming here and pleaded with me not to run."

The first run of the annual event, during which the crowds can swell to more than a million at the weekend, lasted just over four minutes. Fifteen

people have been killed at the annual festival since records began a century ago, the most recent in 2009.

Thirteen victims were Spanish, one Mexican was killed in 1935 and an American in 1995. All were gored to death, except for one who was suffocated in a pile-up at the entrance to the bullring in 1977.

Zero tolerance for drink driving The Traffic Authority is studying the possibility of a €1,000 fine for drivers who have consumed even just a drop of alcohol. The current fine is €500 – half that amount for prompt payment – and the loss of between four and six points. Trafico boss María Seguí warned when she took over 18 months ago that she intended to

introduce zero tolerance for drink driving in the reforms to be made to the Highway Safety Law which the Interior Ministry is currently drafting. Not all the motoring organisations consulted in the drafting of the law agree with hitting drivers even harder in their pockets. The president of

Automovilistas Europeos Asociado, Mario Arnaldo, said the measure was "inopportune" because of the "economic crisis we are going through".

The president of the Asociación Española de Accidentología Vial, Raimundo García, that it made more sense to eliminate the 50 per cent discount currently given

for prompt payment of the fine. Trafico figures show alcohol is the main cause of death in traffic accidents for men under the age of 30. It also a factor in 30 to 50 per cent of fatal road accidents. Surveys show that at least 42 per cent of motorists have had a drink before getting into their cars.

lionel Messi’s lawyers met Barcelona prosecutors last week to see if they can settle the soccer star’s tax case, in which auditors claim he defrauded the government of some €4.1 million. They told prosecutors that the Barça player is willing to settle what he owes including paying a fine and pleading guilty to the charges, a source close to the case said. last month, Messi and his father Jorge Horacio were formally targeted as tax-fraud suspects and summoned to appear before a judge in Barcelona on September 17th. By law, if Messi decides to settle his tax bill within two months after being was named in the investigation, he could stand to pay a smaller amount of what he owes plus a reduced fine. If Messi decides to pay during the next two months, it would cost him about €9 million: the 4.1 million he reportedly defrauded; a €4 million fine; and an additional €1 million in interest.


Cop jailed for tow trucks revenge

The Provincial court has sentenced a police officer to 18 months in prison for slapping tow trucks with unjustified traffic violations in revenge for having his own car towed away twice for illegal parking. The court took into consideration that he had immediately confessed and his final sentence was reduced from the five years that the prosecution was requesting. on october 25th 2010 and February 22nd 2011 a municipal tow truck took the policeman's private vehicle to the city pound after finding it parked on the pavement in front of his house. He was forced to pay a considerable sum on both occasions to get his car back. To get revenge, between December 9th 2010 and February 23rd 2011 he fined four tow trucks for allegedly jumping red lights, even though the vehicles had in fact been elsewhere at the time or not even out on the streets at all.

Searchers comb through rubble for bodies Investigators have begun gaining access to parts of a Quebec town levelled when a runaway crude oil train exploded on Saturday, police said on Monday but warned it could be days before search teams could access the entire disaster zone. They said the death toll in Lac-Megantic has risen to 13, with about 37 more still missing.

A spokeswoman for Quebec's coroner's office pleaded with the families

of the missing to provide DNA samples to investigators by bringing in toothbrushes, hairbrushes, combs, razors, hats or other items. Many of those missing were believed to have been drinking at a popular downtown bar when the explosions occurred. One man who escaped from the bar told reporters he had been unable to sleep because he kept hearing the screams of his

friends. None of the dead have been identified.

Officials have warned that some of the dead may never be recovered, given the intensity of the fire. At least 30 buildings were destroyed by the fireball, including a grocery store and the public library. The devastation was so great Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the town looked like "a warzone" as he toured the area on Sunday.

Elsewhere in Canada, a heavy rainstorm in Toronto has left some 300,000 people without power and flooded parts of Canada's largest city on Monday.

More than 3.5in of water – more than a month's average – was dumped on the city late on Monday, officials said. The rain flooded some major roads and subway stations, causing traffic chaos.

Interim leader Osama Bin Laden outlines timetable failures revealed

Egypt's interim leader has outlined his timetable for new elections, amid continuing unrest in the country. In his decree issued, Adly Mansour said a panel to amend the constitution – which was suspended last week – would be formed within 15 days. The changes would then be put to a referendum – to be organised within four months. This would lead to parliamentary elections – which could be held early in 2014. Presidential elections would be called once the new parliament convenes. The decree was

issued just hours after at least 51 people were killed outside the Presidential Guard barracks in Cairo on Monday morning.

The Muslim Brotherhood put the number of dead at 53, and said children were among the victims. It said the army raided its sit-in at about 4 am as protesters were praying. The army said it responded to an armed provocation. The health ministry said at least 51 people were killed and 435 people wounded.

Incompetence and negligence allowed Osama Bin Laden to live in Pakistan undetected for almost a decade, according to a leaked government report. It said the killing of Bin Laden by US forces was a "criminal act of murder" ordered by the US president.

Bin Laden was killed in a raid by US forces in north-west Pakistan in May 2011. Shortly afterwards, the Pakistan parliament called for an independent enquiry to establish whether the failures of the government were due to incompetence

or colluding with alQaeda. It also investigated the Pakistani intelligence services' failure to detect CIA activity on its soil in the run-up to the raid.

The leaked documents fiercely criticised the Pakistani government and military, describing "culpable negligence and incompetence at almost all levels of government". The commission found nothing to support allegations of complicity, but said it could not rule out "the possibility of some degree of connivance inside or outside the government".

Several tigers attacked the group on Thursday after they accidentally killed a tiger cub in a deer trap set up for food. The injured animal drew nearby tigers, who then pounced on the men and killed a 28-yearold identified only as david. The men had initially alerted nearby villagers using mobile phones. villagers tried to rescue the men on Thursday, but retreated when they saw at least four large Sumatran tigers circling the base of the tree.

Ambassadors summoned over Snowden

The government has summoned the ambassadors of France, Spain, Portugal and Italy to explain why their countries blocked President Evo Morales' jet last week. Mr Morales was flying home from Moscow when his plane was forced to reroute to vienna, amid rumours that US fugitive Edward Snowden was on board. The former CIA contractor is wanted by the US on charges of leaking secrets about US surveillance schemes. The European countries have variously denied closing their airspace. Snowden was not on the flight, and is still believed to be in the transit area of Moscow airport. Spanish officials have said they were told Snowden was on board the plane. GERMANy

Memorial for Nazi 'euthanasia' victims

Work has begun on a memorial in Germany for the 300,000 people murdered by the Nazis for having mental and physical disabilities or chronic illnesses. The 30m long glass wall is being built in the centre of Berlin, near the former site of the Nazi-era office that organised the "euthanasia" programme. In 1939, Adolf Hitler told officials that people "considered incurable" should be "granted a mercy killing". The programme ended officially in 1941, but continued covertly until 1945. On Monday, Germany's State Minister for Culture, Bernd Neumann, said educating people about the Nazis' crimes and honouring their victims remained an obligation for the country. In recent years, memorials have been constructed in Berlin for Jewish, Roma (Gypsy) and homosexual victims of the Nazis.

Terror suspect Qatada Shop bans sale flown out of UK in of sky lanterns middle of night British Prime Minister David Cameron has welcomed the long-awaited deportation of terror suspect Abu Qatada. His removal from the UK has been a government priority.

Leading British high street budget goods store, Poundland, has stopped selling sky lanterns – just days after one caused a devastating fire at a recycling depot in Smethwick near Birmingham.

It is not known where the sky lantern (they are also known as Chinese

lanterns) came from or who released it into the sky but it was seen on security camera footage and it caused the biggest blaze ever seen in the region when it ignited bales of plastic. Fire fighters finally left the scene six days after first arriving. Over 200 men were involved and a number were injured.

Burger sales rocket!

While parent company Associated British Foods expects strong profit growth from Primark, it says the performance will not be at the same level as the first half as the benefit of lower cotton prices fades.

High temperatures over the weekend saw Waitrose burger sales up 90 per cent, and sales of wine and cider up 50 per cent as people took to their barbecues. The Tesco supermarket chain ordered extra stock in advance of the weekend

because of the long-term weather forecast for a prolonged spell of good weather. Chemists were expecting a surge in sales of sun care products. And, like in the photo, you can always add salad, guacamole, cheese and bacon for extra flavour.

Bowen later admitted: "Could have been a lot worse." He appeared to have blood on his face in the photograph and later went for an X-ray. The incident came on the day a supporter of ousted president Mohammed Morsi was killed in Cairo. Foreign Secretary William Hague has said he is "very concerned" by reports of violence in Cairo, calling for "calm heads".

Ed Miliband moves New Growth forecast to reform union hold terror up for UK on Labour party laws Ed Miliband could cost the Labour Party millions of pounds and vast losses of members as he calls for a radical shake-up of the hold unions have over his party.

Under the plans, union members would no longer automatically be affiliated to Labour and candidates for becoming members of parliament for the Labour Party will have to obey a new code of conduct following the Falkirk ballot-rigging scandal that Mr Miliband described as the “death throes of the old politics”. Police are investigating after the Unite union was accused of trying to use its members to secure the selection of a particular candidate in the Scottish constituency. He has also pledged to limit MP’s outside wages if he should win the next general election, due to take place in 2015.

Among other proposals would be a system of US style Primaries for Labour’s next mayor of London candidate and possibly for some candidates in certain constituencies in the future. Spending caps for would-be candidates and any organisation backing them would apply in domestic and European parliamentary elections. Twitter saw a deluge of tweets from Union members, many of whom have “closed shop” jobs who had no idea that they were paying €3 each out of their Union subscriptions towards the running of the Labour party – no matter what their political views were – and were being registered as members of the party. If the plans go ahead, union members would be allowed to “opt in” if they wanted to. "Every time something like Falkirk happens, it

confirms people's worst suspicions," Mr Miliband said. "I want to build a better Labour Party – and build a better politics for Britain. I do not want any individual to be paying money to the Labour Party in affiliation fees unless they have deliberately chosen to do so," he added.

Officials acknowledge ending automatic affiliation will represent a financial "hit" for the party but Mr Miliband claimed it was also an opportunity to mobilise union members. "It could grow our membership from 200,000 to a far higher number, genuinely rooting us in the life of more people of our country," he said.

He insisted being an MP was a "privilege and a duty" rather than a sideline and called for new rules to limit second jobs and avoid conflicts of interest.

Members of two UK-based groups, Minbat Ansar Deen (also known as Ansar al-Sharia) and the Nigeria-based Boko Haram are to be proscribed under terrorism laws, with it becoming a criminal offence under planned changes to UK terror laws to become a member if Home Secretary Theresa May’s plans go ahead.

Washington-based, The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has upgraded its 2013 growth forecast for Britain, reinforcing hopes of economic recovery for the UK and is now predicting a 0.9% growth, up from its April report of just 0.3%. The report practically reverses the April forecasts which came amid warnings over the impact of austerity measures and

gives chancellor George Osborne something to smile about at last. The IMF's latest World Economic Outlook reveals a brighter picture for the UK economy following a raft of recent encouraging reports, with growth of 1.5% also pencilled in for next year. The predictions give the country a boost after fears of a triple-dip recession being predicted previously.

If the plans are approved by Parliament, the radical Islamist groups could be banned from operating in the UK as soon as from midnight on Friday, after which it will be a criminal offence to belong to or back Minbar Ansar Deen or Boko Haram, as well as arrange meetings or wear clothing in support of them.

Minbar Ansar Deen encourages individuals to travel overseas to engage in extremist activity, specifically fighting, the Home Office said. The government said banning Boko Haram, which aspires to establish Islamic law in Nigeria, would prevent the group from operating in the UK and give the police powers to tackle any UK-based support for the group. The Nigerian group have been blamed for numerous attacks across Northern Nigeria leaving at least 1600 dead since 2010 and all schools in Nigeria's Yobe state were closed on Monday after at least 29 students and a teacher were killed in an attack on a boarding school. The penalties for proscription offences can be a maximum of 10 years in prison or a £5,000 fine. Under the Terrorism Act 2000, the Home Secretary can proscribe an organisation if it is believed to be connected to terrorism. Other proscribed groups include al Qaeda, Al Shabaab and Islam4UK, which was led by controversial preacher Anjem Choudary before it was banned.

the Battle of Britain began

Missing Córdoba children’s Briton hurt trial comes to a close in fall The trial of José Bretón (right), who is accused of murdering his 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son on October 8th 2011, closed on Monday, with final statements from the prosecution, the defence and Breton himself. The prosecution claims he murdered the children as revenge against his wife, Ruth Ortiz, who had asked him for a divorce. Prosecutor María Ángeles Rojas told the jury in her final statement: "He killed Ruth and José out of hatred for his wife, because he could not go on controlling her." Rojas is asking for a 40year prison sentence for overdosing the two


children with sleeping pills, then getting rid of their bodies in a bonfire that he made at his parents' finca outside Córdoba. Investigators found indications that the bonfire had been turned into an oven by using a metal sheet to increase the temperature in order to eliminate all remains of what was burnt. However, forensic experts have said the teeth and bone remains found there belonged to humans aged around two and six.

Meanwhile, Bretón's lawyer, José María Sánchez de Puerta, tried to sow doubts about the evidence, and suggested

that his client may have possibly drugged his children but then handed them over to a mysterious individual on the highway, "because Bretón may have wanted to hurt his wife in this way, but I am sure that Bretón is not a murderer".

At the end of the session, Bretón took the stand to issue a final statement. "I am completely innocent," he said. The accused asked the lawyer representing Ortiz in her private prosecution, Maria del Reposo Carrero, if she could be "100 per cent sure that all of these accusations are true". "I am clearly not as

intelligent as has been said," Bretón continued, adding that "After 21 months I find it incredible that nobody knows where Ruth and José are."

The jury is expected to return a verdict shortly.

A 62-year-old Briton was injured on Monday when he fell down one of the sides of the Gibralfaro, in Malaga some 300 metres from the observation point. A fire brigade spokesman said that the man rolled about 20 metres before a pine tree stopped him from falling over a precipice to La Malagueta beach. An Iranian citizen went to the Local Police post at the town hall around 6.30 pm to report that his dog had detected the presence of a man on the hillside, and he appeared to be

hurt. He accompanied a police patrol to the Gibralfaro to show them where the man was. The police called the fire brigade who managed to rescue the man after 30 minutes. A spokesman said the man spoke no Spanish "and we are not very clear as to how he could fall". He confirmed that if the man had not crashed into a pine tree, he would have ended up on La Malagueta beach below. He was taken to the Carlos Haya hospital where he is said to be in a serious condition.

Velez-Malaga tram heads down under

To make ends meet, the Velez-Malaga town council has rented out its first modern tram to the city of Sydney in Australia for €200,000 a year for two years.

The tram has been at a standstill for the past year because of the council's deficit. It set out on its 17,000 km journey to Australia on Monday, but not before some opposition councillors tried to stop it. They stood in the road for two hours to stop the tow truck from loading it on to a special truck that is taking it to Santander to

be loaded on a ship for the final leg of its journey. The Local and National Police were called in and convinced the councillors to go home. The two remaining trams will follow the same route in the near future. Vélez-Málaga mayor Francisco Delgado Bonilla (PP) told reporters the units had been given an "almost surgical" cleaning in order to meet Australia's stringent environmental regulations. He said noone in the town was surprised by the decision

Marijuana cultivation dismantled

The national Police have dismantled in Benalmádena,mijas and Benajarafe several hothouses full of marijuana plants and arrested six people belonging to the same family. The investigation began with a tip-off that marijuana was being cultivated in a house in Calle estocolmo in Benalmádena and that led to the discovery of the greenhouses in two other properties.

Some of the hothouses were found in cupboards. Some 600 plants were seized as well as 1,700 grams of marijuana ready for sale, the paraphernalia needed to grow the plants and €1,465 in cash.

to rent out the trams "given that we all knew that the Junta de Andalucia had gone back on its commitment to partially finance the cost of using them in the town". He said their rental did not mean that the town's

tram system had come to an end, adding that a cheaper tram would probably be used in the future. Since October 2006, the tram connected the main urban centre of Velez-Malaga with Torre del Mar.

Prostitution gang Chinese shopkeeper smashed in Banus dies of injuries The 43-year-old storekeeper who was badly injured when he tried to stop four youths from stealing a bottle of booze from his shop in Fuengirola on Saturday, died in hospital the following day of the injuries he sustained. Police have detained four youths – three men

and a woman – aged 18 and 19, and charged them with homicide and robbery with violence.

Witnesses said the four youths entered the small supermarket around 10.30 on Saturday.

When the Chinese owner realised they had stolen a bottle he chased

them into the street and grabbed the back door of their car.

He was dragged several metres and hit with a bottle until he let go. He was immediately taken to the intensive care unit at the Carlos Haya hospital, where he died at 5.30 pm on Sunday.

Travelling on two tyres

When the Local Police investigated the strange noise they could hear from their patrol car at 4 am on Sunday, they discovered that it came from the car behind them. They pulled over and watched the car being driven very

erratically with two burst tyres – the noise they heard was made by rims on the road surface.

When they breathalysed the 55-yearold driver, a man from Alhaurin el Grande, he

turned out to be three times over the limit.

The car, which showed signs of having run into a wall or other immovable object, was towed away and the man slept off his merrymaking in jail.

The National Police have arrested 30 people belonging to a criminal organisation of Bulgarians, Albanians, Spaniards and a Frenchwoman who brought in women from Bulgaria and set them to work in Puerto Banus. The operation began when an increased number of prostitutes was

observed in Puerto Banus. the women picked up the men – mainly tourists – in the street or a pub and took them to four houses in the port.

The police said that as the men were usually drunk, the women took their money and credit cards. The women lived in Torremolinos and were

transported by bus at the beginning and end of the night.

The arrests were made in Torremolinos, Marbella and Algeciras.

In raids on 27 houses, the police seized 30 grams of cocaine, 10 credit card machines (TPV), €62, 096, £1,960 and US$152, 15 cars and three motorbikes.

Geese and ganders


he old saw that says what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander doesn't seem to apply here in Spain. If we substitute the Partido Popular for the geese and the Socialists for the ganders, we'll see that the gander absolutely refuses to accept the goose's sauce.


xample: Junta de Andalucia premier Jose Antonio Griñan recently announced that he would not stand again in the next regional election, due not later than March 2015. The Socialists have agreed to hold primaries to select his successor, with Griñan backing Susana Diaz, who has a seat in Parliament in Seville and is currently the general secretary of the Socialist Party's Andalusia branch. Shortly after Griñan made his announcement, Judge Mercedes Alaya, who is in charge of digging up the dirt in the ERE corruption case, said she needed to interview Magdalena Alvarez, a former minister in Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's government, and some 19 other high-ranking Socialists in Seville about their possible involvement.


usana Diaz immediately went on record as saying – what a coincidence that the judge is throwing dirt at us just when we are about to hold the primaries. Of course she said nothing about the Socialist General Workers Union (UGT) and the Communist Workers Commissions (CCOO) calling a general strike to take place just four days after the last regional elections on March 25th last year. Mariano Rajoy had been in power just 98 days and all the political commentators and journalists in Spain were surprised that the unions had called a strike so quickly – especially as they hadn't called a strike of any kind until the last year of Zapatero's seven-and-a-half year reign. The unions' tactic worked. They were able to harp on endlessly about the government's cuts for several weeks in the run-up to the strike which robbed the PP's Javier Arenas of the majority he needed to start cleaning up this cesspit called Andalucia. Even so, he still got more seats than the Socialists, for the first time since the region became autonomous (decentralised) in 1981.


or did she mention the fact that the huge Gurtel corruption case involving the Partido Popular started to see the light of day in April 2009, just three months ahead of the regional election. The consistent leaks to the press were meant to stop the PP's Francisco

Camps from winning the election – to no avail, because he won it with an even bigger majority than the previous one.


t was to be expected that Socialist leader Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba would throw in his threepennyworth in the ERE case, criticising the way Judge Alaya is handling it. As PP spokesman Esteban Gonzalez Pons immediately pointed out, Rubalcaba respects judges who investigate the PP, but God help any judge who dares to investigate the Socialist Party.


hen we have the United Left's Diego Valderas, currently the deputy premier in Seville, who came up with the brilliant idea of expropriating properties when the banks tried to evict their inhabitants for not being able to keep up the mortgage payments. It turns out that he enlarged his current flat in Huelva by buying his neighbour's apartment at a bargain price way back in 1997. The neighbour had originally asked him to buy it so he could pay the bank what he owed but Valderas declined. The neighbour was duly evicted and Valderas waited until the bank auctioned it and got it for three million pesetas less than his neighbour had originally asked for. Nice one, Diego.


ow this is when I start patting myself on the back for being able to see into the future. I said at the very start the alliance between the United Left and the Socialist Party that kept the latter in power after the March 2011 election was an unholy one and would probably lead to an early election. History has proved over and over again that Socialists and Communists can't agree on anything for very long and unfortunately the Communists usually come out on top – but probably not this time around. I said last week I suspected Griñan hopes his announced retirement will force an early election and that the government's cuts and unemployment will convince the voters who deserted him last time around to come back and give the party a small majority so that it can govern alone – as it always has in Andalucia which is why the region is such a mess – and get the pesky United Left off its back. According to El Confidencial Online, the Partido Popular is banking on a regional election early next year, one year ahead of time, and are already drawing up their election battle plans. This is one instance when I hope I can say "I told you so". Coalition governments simply don't work.

Diplomatic mess Writes for the English language version of


he bizarre string of events which led to the diversion of Evo Morales' plane last week demonstrates how much governments can overreact and place themselves in embarrassing positions. It all began with a false report that the Bolivian leader was smuggling onboard Edward Snowden, the wanted former US National Intelligence Agency security contractor. Morales had to turn back when France withdrew its authorisation privilege to enter French airspace right in mid flight. He was returning home from an official trip to Moscow and forced to land in Vienna when his pilot realised they were running out of fuel. Portugal and Italy also closed off their airspace, but the greatest discrepancy on that July 2nd evening concerns the role Spain played in this episode.


panish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo insists that Spain didn't join the other nations in closing off its airspace to the Bolivian leader's plane. Instead, Morales lost his window of opportunity to fly over Spanish territory when the other countries revoked their authorisations. Margallo explained that Spanish officials had to reissue another permit for the Bolivian presidential plane. But Morales has told a different story. According to the South American leader, the Spanish ambassador in Austria, Alberto Carnero, insisted on boarding his plane while it was grounded in Vienna to search for Snowden.


he ambassador told Morales, according to the president's recollection, that he would not be permitted to fly through Spain if it couldn't be determined that the wanted fugitive – who has been holed up in the Moscow airport – was not on board. Morales refused, telling the Spanish envoy that he was being treated as a liar. After a serious discussion over the search, Carnero – who Morales described as being worried and scared at this point – told the Bolivian leader they had authorisation to land in the Canary Islands for refuelling.


pain has admitted to receiving a tip off from someone or some government that Snowden was on board. That of course turned out to be a rumour. But such false information has led to an international incident that has resulted in emerging rocky relations with the entire Latin American region which has criticised Europe for perhaps violating international

rules regarding the treatment of world leaders and the sovereignty of official aircraft. The Organization of American States (OAS) was expected to meet this week to tackle the issue. Never before has modern-day Europe gone so far to show disrespect for a president of another country – a person who is not on any official list of people banned from entering the EU.


he United States has stayed out of the fray and said that what occurred last week was the four nations' own decisions. But on Monday it warned that “bilateral relations” would severely be affected with any country that offers Snowden transit through their airspace or asylum, which has been the case with Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua. “I don’t think that it is any secret that we would like to see him returned,” said US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. “We’ve communicated that publicly and privately to any area where he may be stopping in transit, any area where he could possibly end up.”


US fugitive Edward Snowden

egardless of where this Snowden case is headed, the entire matter will no doubt lead to some grave repercussions, especially against Spanish interests in the region. Spain, under Mariano Rajoy's government, has had some serious issues in trying to smooth over relations with a number of leftist countries in Latin America. But unfortunately his attempts have been fruitless and have resulted in more expropriations of Spanish businesses, such as Repsol’s YPF unit by Argentina last year, and ignited rhetoric that Spain isn’t concerned about Latin America. The airspace fracas only adds more fuel to those heated charges.

Birds on the Wing - Rollers in the hole.

The European Roller is strictly a migrant bird, spending most of the year in Africa, only coming here to Andalucía to breed from April through to September.

During its migratory flight the Roller can be seen on the coast but only rarely. To really guarantee seeing a Roller you will need to travel inland to an area of open countryside but for bird enthusiasts this is well worth the effort. Despite a gradual decline in numbers throughout Europe, a recent field trip to the hot, dry and dusty cornfields around Osuna in Seville by Andalucía Bird Society

(ABS)members resulted in a good number of sightings.

The Roller (Pictured right) is a stunning bird, stocky in build, a little larger than a Black bird similar in size to a Jackdaw. It is principally blue in colour with an orange-brown back, and black wing feathers, its aerobatic breeding display with its dramatic series of twists and turns gives it the name of Roller.

The Roller is often sighted high up on trees, posts or overhead wires, on the lookout for what to them must be tasty meals of insects, small reptiles, rodents and frogs. To see them swoop down to catch their prey is magnificent. Generally foraging is in agricultural habitats, meadows in May and August, cornfields in June and July. Fallow land is always favoured but vineyards can be attractive to them if the soil keeps some vegetation cover. The adults pair upon arrival in Andalucía and are normally on their territories by mid-April. They breed mainly in abandoned Green Woodpecker holes or in natural cavities found in trees, walls and sandbanks. During the recent ABS field trip, the birds were found to be nesting in holes in the walls of abandoned farm

buildings, the area in the picture, left, would be ideal for a Roller. Their nests are unlined and they lay up to six eggs. Despite its perhaps unexpected harsh crowlike call which can be heard the Rollers are a magnificent colourful bird as can be seen in this photograph

taken by ABS member Pieter Verheij. Anyone wishing to participate in future field trips or know more about the society can visit the ABS website and forum www.andaluciabirdsociety. org

Last week Pam and Alan Vincent were sitting on their patio in the Coin campo with friends and with three dogs in attendance. Suddenly out from the bushes came the three little kittens in the picture. They had no fear of the dogs or humans and were clean and appeared well.

There are no close neighbours to the house and they had not seen any cats around previously so

believe they may have been abandoned.

The kittens have moved in and show no signs of leaving voluntarily!

Although Pam and Alan are pleased to look after them now they are only here on holiday and will be returning to the UK in three weeks so the poor little kittens need a new home/homes desperately.

If you can help please give Alan a call on 627 013 646.

RELEASE MONEY FROM YOUR UK PENSION QROPS (Qualifying Recognized Overseas Pension Scheme) have been available to ex-pats since April 2006.

There is no mystery to QROPS, they are basically the same as your UK pension but offer better benefits than the UK. The process is very simple and takes approximately three months to complete. In the UK you may not take any benefits before you are 55 years of age. If you are 50 or above and have been outside the UK for 5 complete tax years you may withdraw 25/30% and then an income at 55. If you are pension rich but cash poor, this could be a way of solving temporary financial difficulties. You have nothing to lose by asking but everything to gain. We look forward to hearing from you To find if you qualify to release money now call 951 206 138 or email or visit and complete the free assessment form.

A series of three prestigious summer concerts coming to Andalucia The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra’s workshop will return this summer to Andalucia to perform three concerts.

An equal number of Israeli and Arab musicians, together with a large group of Spanish members, most of them from Andalucia, will meet in Seville from the 28th of July to the 8th of August, to prepare the repertoire of this summer concert tour. Together with the two usual symphonic concerts, this year several soloists of the orchestra and Maestro Daniel Barenboim will also offer

a chamber music concert, bringing the total to three concerts in Andalucia. The tour opens in the Teatro Central of Seville on the 8th of August. This concert is part of the events organised by the Barenboim-Said Foundation to pay tribute to the Palestinian intellectual Edward Said, on the 10th anniversary of his death. Several soloists from the orchestra, conducted by Maestro Barenboim, will perform Alban Berg’s Chamber concerto for Piano and Violin with 13 wind instruments.

As a prologue to the concert, Maestro Barenboim will converse with Ana Dopico, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature from the University of New York and Edward Said’s former student.

On the 9th of August, the orchestra will perform the first symphonic concert of this summer tour in the Teatro de la Maestranza of Sevilla. On this occasion, the repertoire will include Verdi’s ouvertures to I Vespri Siciliani and to La

Then the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra will travel to Granada to perform its second symphonic concert in the Palace of Charles V in the Alhambra – as part of the celebrations of the Millenium of the Kingdom of Granada – performing Richard Wagner’s preludes to Parsifal, The Mastersingers of Nuremberg and Beethoven’s 7th Symphony in A major, Op. 92.

The big Blues Festival in Mijas village last weekend was a terrific success. Big and terrific being the two operative words. This year’s festival was the biggest yet, drew the largest audience ever, with an atmosphere that was nothing short of terrific, as nine different bands performed their own style of Blues over the three nights.

It is unfair to mention one or a few out of all the great performances but it has to be said that particularly inspiring were the charismatic

performances of Jeremiah Marques and the Blue Aces Band (above) . These Mijas Blues Festival veterans did not disappoint their Andalucian fans, visibly bonding with the crowd as Jeremiah sang to them the

words that tell it like it is. Just one from all those that contributed greatly to an excellent festival that continues to put Mijas firmly on the Blues map of very good music. Roll on 2014. Pete Woodall

There have been rumours that the 5th Birthday Party at La Risa at Lauro Golf has been cancelled due to a family bereavment. Not so people! This fabulous night out is still very much going ahead and tickets are available now. I have been to the previous four parties and they were one of the best parties of the year. This year, Jan and her team will be doing a sumptuous buffet and you will be sitting on the terrace, shaded by lovely big sun umbrellas and the trees eating your buffet and listening to the live music from Juliette Williams.

As usual you will need to come with your dancing shoes on as there’s plenty of it to be enjoyed. Tickets are available by calling 653 010 208 and this is one night of the year not to be missed. Oh, yes, I almost forgot... you’ll get birthday cupcakes too! Kym Wickham

particularly the accelerated, compressed and densely populated urban environments of the 21st Century that he smoothly alters into a futurist landscape of the imagination. In "Violet Skies" (right) and "Dreams of Eden", he depicts his personal vision of two of his dream cities: New York and Paris. Joseph Klibansky makes large-scale, idealistic digital paintings that are built up through hundreds of layers of photography enriched with acrylic paint on archival cotton paper overlaid with a liquid resin. His work conveys a layering and compression of time, space and place creating new narratives by creating dreamy images of cities, combining past and future, with a dramatic dynamism that for the artist becomes a way of signifying his perception of the rapidly changing digital culture as well as suggesting his personal journey.

Joseph Klibansky was born in 1984 in Cape Town and grew up in a creative and internationallyoriented environment. In his teens, he became fascinated by the possibilities offered by computer art and digital imagery. He started to merge hundreds of images into powerful compositions, enhanced by computer artwork and often combined with a variety of painting techniques.

The young artist soon developed his own distinctive style, which fascinates art galleries and collectors the world over: innovative creations in bright colours. “When you see my work, you immediately get a positive vibe”, he says. Joseph Klibansky graduated at a Dutch business school, but soon decided to follow his great passion: art. He is one of the youngest professional artists in the contemporary international art scene. Inspired by such topics as cities, fashion, design, modern architecture, and music, he is constantly full of ideas for new works of art. Or, as he puts it: “It is my life. When I am not sleeping, I am thinking about art!” “Blue Dreams” is pictured, left.

The Steve Nelson Band, normally associated with the popular Pógs Sunday Session, have temporarily given up their Sunday afternoon slot for the summer but will return later in the year. The good news is that the band are back at Pógs in Fuengirola this Saturday night (July 13th) from around 10.30 pm onwards. If you're on holiday, then the Steve Nelson Band is one of the longest serving members of the Costa del Sol live music scene. The band pull a good crowd and put on a talented show of classic rock songs and ballads, whilst enjoying a healthy banter with their faithful audiences, in short it's a good night out.

Pógs is well priced for drinks, the bar is large and in the style of an Irish pub, it's air conditioned and there's a dance floor for the dancers and you posers after you've had a few.

On a Friday and Saturday night Pógs hosts some of the best bands on the Costa del Sol. There is a soft rock/blues orientated open session on a Thursday, an open Jazz night every Wednesday and the new summer Celtic Sessions have just started on Sunday evening from 9.00 pm. The Celtic Fusion is hosted by Mandolin Mick Draycott, Chicago Jim, Andy Mac along with other musical friends. Something for everyone who has a taste for good live music.

Pógs is easy going and easy to find, on Calle Lamo de Espinosa just up the street from the Pyr Hotel which is on the promenade by Fuengirola port. Tel. 662 594 111, evidence of a good time being had by one and all can be seen on facebook. Pete Woodall - Woody's Los Boliches

Reality taking over TV

By Amy Thomas

Any comments?



ver the past ten years the amount of reality shows that have popped up is beyond belief, practically every channel is packed with reality shows. It’s crazy, what is going on? We’ve got reality shows coming out of our ears – about dating, decorating, cooking, exercising, etc. You name it, the networks have thought of everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING!


Pac i f i c Ri m Directed by Guillermo del Toro Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman Cult director del Toro, the man who helmed Pan’s Labyrinth and the Hellboy movies, has put himself in the running to take the crown for directing this summer’s best blockbuster.

Our planet is under attack by the Kaiju (‘giant beast’ in Japanese) who have emerged from a space-time rift in the ocean floor. Mankind has to fight back against seemingly overwhelming odds and millions die. To combat the monsters a special type of weapon is created – giant metal

robots called Jaegers which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots, whose minds are linked. But even these are proving incapable of holding back the hordes and, on the verge of defeat and with diminishing numbers of robots left, the forces defending mankind have to turn to two unlikely saviours – former top pilot Raleigh Becket (Hunnan) and rookie Mako Mori (Kikuchi). They take control of a one time legendary but now seemingly obsolete Jaeger and make their stand as mankind’s last hope.

Dead Man Down


Director: Niels Arden Oplev Starring: Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Dominic Cooper Victor, a rising gangland player, has infiltrated the crime empire run by ruthless kingpin Alphonse, with the single purpose of making Alphonse pay for destroying his once happy life. As



orchestrates his vengeance from his highrise home, Victor watches and is watched by Beatrice, a mysterious young woman who lives in the apartment across from his.

On the surface a fragile woman-child, Beatrice


The movie tips its hat at just about every other monster/robot sci fi movie in the Hollywood firmament, including Battleship and Transformers. But in the hands of del Toro there are breathtaking action scenes, a ferocious intensity and fabulous set

pieces as the war is waged around the world.

It’s had a great reception from the critics and if the buzz translates into box office takings it won’t be a surprise to see del Toro take on the sequel.

Release date: July 9th

seethes with a rage of her own. When she uncovers Victor's dark secrets, she threatens to expose him unless he helps her carry out her own campaign of retribution. Each fixated on avenging the past, they devise a violent and

o be honest, I don’t know what is worse, the viewers for indulging the networks or the participants for prostituting themselves just to get on TV. Have our lives become so empty, that we have to watch other people living their life to feel alive?


ersonally I try my best to stay away from shows like “I’m a Celebrity”, “The Real Housewives of (wherever is popular this week)”. I will admit to watching the “Deadliest Catch” on more than one occasion, but never got into the “Ice Road Truckers” or “Ax Men”. If, I watch any of these reality shows I normally lean towards the sci-fi route, “Destination Truth”, “Stranded”, and yes, I even watch “Ghost Adventures”. In my defence, Zak from “Ghost Adventures” is quite entertaining, mostly so when he starts threating to punch a ghost in the face – yeah, good luck with that!


cathartic plan that could change their worlds forever.

ut of all of these reality shows, MTV is the biggest offender. Not only is there rarely music on MTV – (hmm, what does that stand for again?), but it’s home to “Catfish”, “Teen Mom”, “Friend Zone” and here are biggest names “Jersey Shore”, “Geordie

Shore” and the most offensive of all reality shows ever made “The Valleys”.


ne show that has been upsetting me the most lately is “Fact or Faked”, which consists of six “researchers” who find interesting videos of UFOs, mythological beast, ghosts, etc and try to prove whether they are real or not. Then, once they have picked two videos, they split up into two groups and investigate. The really irritating things are: one, they explain everything to each other, as though the other doesn’t know what’s going on, when he does. For example: all three of them build some dumb contraption and once it’s finished, one of them turns round to the other who helped build it, and starts explaining what it is. Dude, if your buddies don’t know what they are doing, perhaps they should be fired! And two, they do all these ridiculous things to prove the video is faked and then it comes to a point where it could be paranormal, they just say: “Well, it’s fact – inconclusive”. So, what are they doing? What is the point?


blame “Big Brother” for all these reality spin-offs. I never particularly cared for “Big Brother” all those loud foul-mouthed yobos fighting. No, no, I say, let us have no more of this nonsense, I say we should have a “Big Brother” with twelve public school boys. Wouldn’t it be brilliant. “Oh Harry, this kettle is frightfully tricky” – “Damn you Quentin, you pinched my last Hob-Nob!”

There are no limits to the passion and sensual energy that is oozing from you this week. There has been a significant shift recently that has ignited that emotional spark within. Love more and work less if you can, as this is the time to follow your heart, as opposed to chasing your mind. Others will realise how much they really need your input particularly in getting something off the ground and will look to you to take the lead. There is someone you care deeply about and if things have been a bit strained on the communication front then you will find that you will be able to connect with more depth and understanding than ever before. Beneficial change is on its way and this is initiated because of your intense feelings, wants and desires. Things that had worried you in the past will fade into insignificance; remain positive no matter what negativity comes your way. You are in the process of pondering a big move that will set the stage for the next chapter of your life. Home and relationships are key in your decision-making factors and although you may need to back yourself out of an emotional outburst, where perhaps you said something before you thought about it, it won’t be anything you can’t sort out. Events start to move forward a lot faster, things happen and develop really fast from now on, like you are making up for lost time. There is great potential waiting for you to access and others will certainly start to see what you are made of. You are beginning a journey of self discovery and new beginnings. There is likely to be some sort of communication from someone who has the power to advance your position on your path. This will give you more confidence, the key in everything that is happening is to do with teamwork and partnerships, you no longer need to go it alone. The tide has turned for you Leo and you should start to feel that warm inner glow return and the fire within energising you again. It is likely you have cleared a hurdle and you know there is no turning back. Regardless of what happens now there is an air of coolness about you, some things are like ‘water off a duck’s back’ and have no influence over you. Concentrate on doing what you can do to acquire the things you know you'll need in the future. The lovely quality with you Virgo is that you have no idea the power, strength and influence you possess over others. In the past you had to put up with being bossed around but now it has all changed and your inner determination and motivation allows you to ‘step up to the plate’ and take control, so be clear what you really want. This is a social time and a new connection may reach out and touch your heart – love can happen when you least expect it.


Be prepared to be in demand again Libra. Watch out for lost opportunities that seem to appear from nowhere as everyone seems to want and need what you can offer. Remain sharp on the financial front, things are starting to improve and will do over the next few weeks. Get that financial plan together and pay attention to the detail. If you speak up and take charge in the face of September 23rd - authority you are likely to get the respect you deserve. October 22nd

Sudden transformations are about to take place this is due to the emotional intensity that has been so strong within lately. Things are about to become more balanced again and you will feel lighter as a result, if there have been delays or transport problems then these are likely to be resolved. Others want to get close to you as you exude magnetism, warmth mixed with a little charm. Listen to your gut instincts this week, they will be a good judge of character.

Dont you love it when a plan comes together? Well this is what this week will feel like to you, things that have been stagnant or stalled start to move forward, what was lost will now be found. The only problem area is your mind at the moment when there is a tendency to over think things, when you do this you can put invisible barriers in the way, or lean on the side of negativity. Keep busy and active and focused in the present and you can’t go wrong. Your ruler has gone direct after being retrograde for four months and for you this will feel that you can start to get your power back and some important developments are likely to take place. Usual ruts and routines will seem a thing of the past and adventures start knocking at your door. One thing leads to another without much input from you, your level of attraction also increases. A relationship could take you on a wild ride into unknown territory. If you have lacked motivation and found it hard to drag your heels out the front door then this is about to change, with Saturn moving direct you are likely to not only become the centre of attention but also your hopes and dreams will be re-ignited. Take care of the things that have been hanging over your head and get them fixed, this will give you a true sense of accomplishment. This week is going to go your way and social activities will turn out to be fun. Your home and family life is about to become more stable than it has been for a while, things are settling down. Wherever you have felt pain and sorrow, you can expect swift relief. Your dreams and plans for the future begin to look much clearer and detailed. Long distance travel becomes very likely takes you out of your usual comfort zone. Before you may have had the ideas or insights, but lacked the materials or means to put things into motion. Plans start to fall into place. don’t have to be a chef!

• • •

4 red mullet fillets, skin on, about 125 g (4½ oz) each Salt and black pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil For the sauce 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1 small yellow pepper, chopped 1 shallot, finely chopped 2 tablespoons dry vermouth 1 tablespoon dried herbes de Provence or oregano

• • • • •

• • •

350 g (12 oz) plum tomatoes, skinned and roughly chopped 8 large stoned black olives, roughly chopped 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh flat-leaved parsley

Directions Prep: 20min Cook: 20min Lightly season the fish fillets and brush the flesh with a little of the oil. To make the sauce, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a shallow pan and gently fry the garlic, pepper and shallot for about 8 minutes until they are softened. Stir in the vermouth and cook until it is reduced by half. Add the dried herbs, tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Near

the end of the cooking, stir in the olives and parsley and adjust the seasoning. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a ridged, iron grill pan or a heavy-based nonstick frying pan and cook the fish fillets, skin side down, for 4 minutes. Turn them carefully and cook for a further 2-4 minutes until they are opaque and flake easily. Or you can grill the fillets in a lightly oiled grill pan under a high heat for about 4 minutes on each side. Spoon the sauce on to four dinner plates, place a fillet on top of each, skin side up, and serve.

Spain first to get Firefox OS mobile phone through Telefónica’s Movistar Telefónica, Mozilla and ZTE launched the world’s first Firefox OS mobile phone in Spain last Tuesday. The ZTE Open will be made available at Movistar retail outlets for €69. The launch is the first since the Firefox OS made its entrance into the mobile arena at Mobile World Congress in February. The ZTE Open is “packed with everything you would expect from a smartphone, delivering a great experience for those upgrading to one for the first time,” said Dai Wenhong, VP of ZTE Corporation. In particular, the companies highlighted a “dynamic search capability” whereby users can search for an artist and get results to buy songs, watch music videos, buy concert tickets and listen to them instantly without having to download and install any aps. Content partners including eBay, Spanish newspaper EL

PAÍS and Huffington Post are represented in a Firefox Marketplace. “We believe that smartphones need to be more open and that the web is the platform for making this possible,” commented Luis Miguel Gilpérez, CEO of Telefónica España. “Consumers should not be locked to any one system but should have the choice to consume the content they want and the flexibility to be able to take it with them when they change devices. This first open web device marks a significant milestone in making this possible.” The ZTE Open is the first of a number of Firefox OS devices that will be launched by Telefónica this year; customers in Colombia and Venezuela will be next to benefit “in the coming weeks”.

The launch comes as new figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech show that almost half of all smartphones sold in Europe in the three months to May are a Samsung, boosting Android to a 70 percent – a nine percent year-on-year increase. Last week, Telefónica signed a oneyear marketing deal with Microsoft to promote Windows Phone 8 handsets in Europe and Latin America as it looks to break "duopoly" of iOS and Android.

Ask Calvin and Sue: Hair & Beauty Dear Sue

I have just noticed that my freckles have returned, and I have even more than last year. Help! Dawn, Coin Dear Dawn

It is no coincidence that your freckles have returned now that summer is here. Freckles

are caused by the melanin in your skin grouping together and forming a freckle when you are young and an age spot as we get older.

It is the melanin in the skin that enables us to tan so any sun exposure will make them more noticeable. You need to apply total sunblock with a factor 50 to prevent the sun making them darker. Many cosmetic houses

grow more quickly in the summer is because when you are exposed to more sunlight your body produces more Vitamin D.

Jane, Benalmadena Costa

It is the vitamin D that encourages nail and hair growth. An added factor is in the summer your circulation in the body has to work harder to keep you cool so the blood is reaching the nails faster and feeding them with all their nutrients. (I believe this is why finger nails grow quicker than toe nails as we use our arms more, promoting better circulation and can be the reason so many of us have cold feet in the winter.)

Dear Calvin

ends, how can I repair them? Janice, Mijas Pueblo Dear Janice

The only real way to cure your split ends is to cut them off. If you won't have them cut off you can use a product such as "Paul Mitchell's Skinny Serum", or a leave-in conditioner which will help smooth the split ends down. A regular in-salon conditioning treatment will also help. Do remember whenever you blowdry your hair always apply a protective spray or cream. Dear Calvin

I suffer with my hair

from what only can be called the "frizz-ball" look. Any ideas on how to tame my locks? Samantha, Benalmadena Costa Dear Samantha

When you have washed your hair always apply a detangling product which is good for frizzy hair and then apply an anti-frizz product. Don't use a high setting on your hair drier keep it set on medium or cool. Don't dry your hair in a humid place like a bathroom, move to a dry room and make sure your hair is 100% dry. Finish off your hair with a protective serum to keep it smooth and under control.

IVF 'as cheap as £170' The cost of IVF can be cut dramatically from thousands of pounds to around £170 to start a "new era" in IVF, fertility doctors from Belgium have claimed.

Twelve children have been born through the technique, which replaces expensive medical equipment with "kitchen cupboard" ingredients. Data, presented at a fertility conference in London, indicates the success rate is similar to conventional IVF.

Fertility treatment is expensive. In the UK, it costs around £5,000 per cycle. High levels of the gas carbon dioxide are needed to grow embryos in an IVF clinic to control the acidity levels. This is maintained using carbon dioxide incubators, medical grade gas and air purification. Instead, researchers at the Genk Institute for Fertility Technology mixed inexpensive citric acid and bicarbonate of soda to produce carbon dioxide.

They said: "We succeeded with an almost

Alka-Selzer-like technique. Our first results suggest it is at least as good as normal IVF and we now have 12 healthy babies born."

The results presented to the fertility conference showed a pregnancy rate of 30% – approximately the same as IVF. The researchers believe the cost of IVF can be cut to just 10-15% of services in Western countries. The technique cannot completely replace conventional IVF. For example, it would not help men with severe infertility who require more advanced treatment in which the sperm is injected into the egg. The researchers said the aim was to bring fertility treatment to the rest of the world: "If you don't have a child in

Africa, South America or Asia, it's a disaster from an economic and psychological point of view. They throw you out of the family."

Even in rich, Western, countries many couples are still unable to afford IVF and the studies are attracting interest. Stuart Lavery, the director of IVF at Hammersmith Hospital in London, said the study had the potential to have a big impact globally." He said the weakness of the study is that it was carried out in a big lab in Belgium, "so they need go out and do the same study in Africa now. But if this is real potentially you're talking about bringing IVF to corners of the world where there is no IVF." The researchers anticipate starting out in Ghana, Uganda or Cape Town.

Contemporary lifestyle and celebrity gossip

Despite having his hand around her throat in a photo, Mr Saatchi deplores violence to women...

And is now suing his wife for divorce … adding that he has been a “disappointment” to her

Although she did not make an official complaint against her husband Charles Saatchi when he was photographed with his hand around her neck during a row whilst sitting outside Scott’s restaurant in London last month, it would appear that Mr. Saatchi was not satisfied. The 70-year-old art collector has now filed for divorce citing 53-year-old celebrity chef wife Nigella Lawson’s refusal to make any comment about the incident as one of the reasons. He is apparently upset that she “didn’t defend” his reputation in the media. In a statement he said "I am sorry to announce that Nigella Lawson and I are getting divorced. I feel that I have

clearly been a disappointment to Nigella during the last year or so, and I am disappointed that she was advised to make no public comment to explain that I abhor violence of any kind against women, and have never abused her physically in any way."

After the incident Saatchi voluntarily attended a central London police station and accepted a caution, saying he did not want the incident "hanging over all of us". He further claimed that Nigella had refused to take his calls after she had left the family home with her three children from her previous marriage to journalist John Diamond, who died of throat cancer in 2001. Saatchi, who made his name in

advertising, said: "This is heartbreaking for both of us as our love was very deep, but in the last year we have become estranged and drifted apart. The row photographed at Scott's restaurant could equally have been Nigella grasping my neck to hold my attention – as indeed she has done in the past."

Saatchi insisted his actions were not violent, saying while he had his hands around Ms Lawson's neck, "there was no pressure applied to her". He said the pictures gave a "wholly different and incorrect implication", adding: "I am sorry that we had a row. I am sorry she was upset. I am even more sorry that this is the end of our marriage."

Ms Lawson married Saatchi in 2003. Her spokesman said: "There is no comment from Nigella." So, it would seem, as far as Mr Saatchi is concerned that it’s perfectly OK to hold your wife by the throat to grab her attention. Erm... no mate, it’s not now, never has been and never Nigella and the hold of love? will be OK. It would appear that if this is the sort of thing considered normal behaviour, that has been going on in their then she’s well rid of him! marriage and that is

No foot? Make one Ali Carter sick out of Lego! Two-time World Snooker Championship finalist Ali Carter has been diagnosed with testicular cancer.

One of the things that a lot of amputees find difficult to adapt to is their prosthetic limb. Not so for occupational therapist Christina Stevens, 31, from St. Louis, Missouri who lost her left foot when the car she was changing the brakes on fell off its axle stands, crushing her foot.

She said: “The surgeons wanted to save my foot with a partial amputation and several surgeries, but I elected to have an amputation because I knew a prosthetic foot would be more functional.' A work colleague suggested that it might be funky to have a prosthetic made of Lego. Christina

The popular 33-year-old – nicknamed 'The Captain' as he is a licensed pilot – learned the news last week and was to have surgery on Tuesday. He will then have to undergo chemotherapy, but he has vowed to return to the snooker tour. agreed, and now has a multicoloured Lego ‘leg’. She has filmed the process from crushed foot to eventual Lego leg and that has now gone viral online.

She said: “It only took me about two hours to make the Lego leg, but I filmed it over two days. People mostly seem to

think the Legoleg is awesome and they love how creative I have been with my situation, having had to lose my foot to an accident. I think being an amputee will make me a better therapist. I can show that I know what it's like to have limited mobility and the people I help and I will be more like peers.”

Carter has battled back from illness in the past – in 2003 he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease but recovered to become one the best players on the snooker tour. "I hope to be back in action soon," he said about his latest battle. World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn added: "Ali has shown in his battle against Crohn's

disease that he is a fighter. We hope for a positive outcome and everyone in snooker is 100 per cent behind him. We look forward to seeing him back on the circuit soon." Carter has won three ranking events in his career and has been ranked as high as number two in the world. He reached the World Championship final at the Crucible in both 2008 and 2012 losing to Ronnie O'Sullivan on both occasions.

On Friday 21st June, I received a notification in my mail box in Fuengirola from the Ayuntamiento de Fuengirola stating that I had not paid the tax for my vehicle and I must visit them to collect some papers. On Monday 24th June, my wife and I went the the Ayuntamiento de Fuengirola with the documents for my vehicle and proof that I had already paid the tax.

We explained all of this to the two men that we spoke to and, unfortunately, they were not helpful at all. My wife spoke to the men in Spanish and explained that we had paid the car tax on line and showed them the receipts but they both just stated that as this was paid to Coin, we would have to pay again!! One of the men then gave me a paper named “Notification Liquidacion IVTM” and said that I now need to pay again. I refused stating, yet again, that I have already paid this tax in April and again showed the proof of payment. We did explain that we received the “Periodo Voluntario” in the post and paid online; we did not know if the “Periodo Voluntario” was from Coin or Fuengirola – we just received the notification and paid.

Also, how can Ayuntamiento

the de

Fuengirola send me a “Notification” for non payment of the car tax without even sending me a “Periodo Voluntario”? Surely this is not correct?

No further assistance or advice was offered by these two men and even though we spoke to them in Spanish, they were not helpful.

Please advise what I should do next because as far as I can see, we have done everything correctly from the beginning and I would presume that as my wife and I registered our selves and the vehicle in December, this was surely enough time for the Ayuntamiento de Fuengirola to get things in order. We also sent this information and all documents to the "foreign resident representative" in Fuengirola but they have never answered.

Editor says: WE have an update on this for you. Coin Ayuntamiento have agreed to refund the car tax after they found they weren’t entitled to take it.

However, as I personally had to wait over four years to get money out of them and, as I still live in Coin I eventually agreed that they could take the equivalent off future IBI, basura, water and car bills. At least, one way or another they will be paying me. But don’t hold your breath Mr Cassell for a speedy return of your money!


s dusk falls and the stars begin to appear look toward the Western horizon and the brightest ‘star’ that you can see is the planet Venus shining dazzlingly bright white in colour. Venus is now moving to the left of the Sun and so appears as the evening star. It will continue to move away from the Sun until it reaches greatest western elongation on November 1st, then it will begin to move back towards the Sun to pass between the Sun and the Earth and reappear next year before sunrise as the morning star. enus is the closest planet to Earth and is just slightly smaller than Earth but it is completely covered in a veil of clouds. It is the reflection of these clouds that makes it shine so brightly. Through a telescope Venus displays phases similar to those of the Moon as it orbits the Sun. ust above Venus is the constellation of Leo. Leo does look a bit like one of the lions in Trafalgar Square, lying prone with his front legs ahead of him. The bright star Regulus marks the bottom part of the familiar ‘reversed question mark’ shape of stars that are the lion’s shoulder and head. At this time of year Leo is facing down toward the horizon with his body pointing up the sky. ow that the sky is darker and more stars are visible locate The Plough or, as the Americans call it, ‘The Big Dipper’. This is a group of seven stars that forms a saucepan shape. It is almost overhead at this time of year with the curve of the ‘handle’ pointing upwards and the four stars of the ‘bowl’ facing down toward the north west horizon. f you follow the natural curve of the ‘handle’ of the plough then directly overhead is a very bright red coloured star called Arcturus. Arcturus is about 36 light years away and is huge; it is so big that if it was placed where our Sun is then its outer edge would be between the orbit of Mars and Jupiter. It is a Red Giant star which means that it has used up all its fuel and will die very shortly. Luckily for us, it won’t




explode as a supernova; instead it will collapse down to become a white dwarf and leave a ghostly ring nebula in its wake. fter you ‘arc to Arcturus, now spike to Spica’ the brightest star in the constellation Virgo. Unfortunately the rest of the constellation is made from very faint stars and is not clearly defined; it looks nothing like a beautiful virgin! Spica is a brilliant blue/white coloured star 260 light years away. It is not a massive star like Arcturus but it is incredibly bright – even at 260 light years it is still one of the brightest stars in the sky. ook just to the left of Spica and you will find a yellow coloured ‘star’; this is the planet Saturn. At the moment Saturn is putting on a fine display with her ring system almost fully open. Even through binoculars the elongated shape of the rings can be made out and through a telescope Saturn is a glorious sight. With binoculars you may also get to see Titan, the largest of Saturn’s moons. Titan is actually bigger than the planet Mercury. round 23.00 hours look towards the southern horizon and here is Antares the brightest star in Scorpio. Antares is another red super giant. Because of its bright red colour it is often mistaken for Mars and so its name in Arabic actually means ‘not Mars’. Now, where Virgo looks nothing like its namesake the same cannot be said for Scorpio – it really does look like a giant scorpion crawling up the sky. Antares marks the heart of the scorpion with its tail and sting curving down and to the left. Scorpio is definitely one of the better-looking constellations but because it is so low down near to the horizon it is not fully visible from the UK. Only when I moved to Spain did I see Scorpio in all its glory. So take a moment or two to have a look around the night sky, as they say ‘Astronomy is looking up’.

Vettel wins his home GP This was a hard fought first victory in his home race for the reigning, three-time world champion, Sebastian Vettel, by just one second from Kimi Raikkonen in the Lotus. “Thank you, boys; that was a tough one,” Vettel shouted over the radio to his Red Bull team moments after the victory. Romain Grosjean finished third in the other Lotus, just managing to hold off Fernando Alonso who had chased him down for the last few laps of the race.

It was Vettel’s 30th career victory and his fourth of the season. “It is definitely a great relief,” said Vettel, who turned 26 on Wednesday. “For sure there are lot of expectations — especially when you have a good car and have a good run when you come to your home race. We didn’t let that get to our head, but it feels very, very sweet now to have succeeded.”

On Lap 8 of the 60-lap race, a wheel came off Mark

Later there was to be more drama, when on Lap 22, the Cosworth engine on the Marussia car of Jules Bianchi exploded into

flames, giving the driver barely enough time to get out of the car safely. The Marussia then started to roll backwards across the track without the driver, forcing the race to be neutralised behind the safety car to allow marshals time to remove the damaged car. When the race resumed after Lap 28, just before the halfway point, it turned into a nail-biting contest between the two Lotuses and the Red Bull of Vettel. Alonso was just 0.7secs behind Grosjean heading into the final lap but slowed

Italian plans for small Simply repairs & servicing to SUVs all makes and models at unbeatable prices


609 709 466

Fiat-Chrysler plans to build up to 280,000 small SUVs a year in Italy for the Fiat and Jeep brands, sources say. Production will start in June 2014 with the as-yet-unnamed Jeep variant followed three months later by the Fiat 500X.

The planned annual volume for the Jeep is up to 150,000 units while Fiat's version will account for 130,000. Fiat said last December that it would invest more than 1 billion euros to add these small SUVs to its plant in Melfi, central Italy. The production plan is key to the carmaker’s bid to boost capacity usage and end losses in Europe by focusing on building higher-margin models.

Southern 100: Rider killed in opening practice session A rider has died in an accident at the opening practice session for the Southern 100 road race meeting in the Isle of Man.

Part of the course where the accident happened

The accident happened on the approach to Ballakeighan Corner on the Billown Circuit at 19.15 BST on Monday. Webber’s Red Bull while it was in motion in the pit lane, and it struck a cameraman, Paul Allen who works for the official F1 TV company FOM. He suffered a broken shoulder and cracked ribs but remained conscious throughout. He was taken to Koblenz Hospital, where he remained under observation. Red Bull were subsequently fined 30,000 Euros by race stewards.

down as he approached the chequered flag, and was told by his team to pull off at Turn One immediately after taking the flag.

The result extends Vettel's lead in the championship to 34 points over Alonso, who is seven ahead of Raikkonen, with Hamilton a further 17 behind. Hamilton struggled with heavy tyre wear but held on well and fought back from a final pit stop with 15 laps to go to pass Button in a superb move around the outside of turn two on the final lap.

The rider has not yet been formally identified and family members are being supported by the Auto Cycle Union's (ACU) riders' welfare officer.

Spectators who witnessed the accident are being asked to contact Port Erin police.

It is understood the crash occurred during practice for the 600cc Supersport class, the fourth practice session of the evening. Earlier in the session Northern Ireland's Michael Dunlop set the fastest time on his Honda TT Legends' Superbike. Practice was cancelled following the accident but the meeting will continue later with further practice and the event's opening two races.

Get ready for a sizzling summer of Ashes cricket England have named a 13man squad for the first Ashes Test, which starts today at Trent Bridge. Batsman Kevin Pietersen and spinner Graeme Swann have both been included having overcome recent injury concerns.

Opener Nick Compton's omission is confirmed, with Joe Root set to open the batting with captain Alastair Cook. Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad are expected to lead the bowling attack, with Tim Bresnan, Steve Finn and Graham Onions also vying for a seamer's spot. Anderson and Broad, who has recovered from a

shoulder injury, were rested for England's recent warm-up game against Essex, in which Finn, Onions and Bresnan led the attack. Root was elevated to the top of the order for that game, in place of Compton, who was dropped after opening with Cook in England's last nine Tests. Root's Yorkshire team-mate Jonny Bairstow is retained in the middle order alongside Ian Bell and the fit-again Pietersen.

NEBS Society found Marbella Golf in very good condition and the recent alterations to the closing holes a vast improvement.

Pietersen has not played a Test match since March when he had to pull out of the series in New Zealand with a knee injury. Graeme Swann will be the sole spinner, despite an injury scare at Chelmsford when he was struck on the right forearm while batting, but an X-ray showed no fracture. England currently hold the Ashes after winning the last series 3-1 Down Under in 2010-11 – their third victory in the past four series.

England squad:

Alastair Cook (Essex, captain), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire), Kevin Pietersen (Surrey), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire), Matt Prior (Sussex, wicket keeper), Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Graeme Swann (Nottinghamshire), Steven Finn (Middlesex), James Anderson (Lancashire), Graham Onions (Durham).

The results were as follows. Nearest the pin on hole 3 Andy Macfarlane, hole 11 Sav Ramayon and hole 16 John Bamber. Longest drive on hole 13 Andy Macfarlane.

Team score calculated on average score, was won by Sav Ramayon, Mike Brian, Tony Hussey and Andy Macfarlane with 25 points. The Par three competition was won by Andy Macfarlane with 10 points.

The day’s main competition results were as follows – Third place with 29 points on count back Joe King. Second place with 29 points Terry Birtles. First place with 31 points Andy Macfarlane. Well done Andy, you had a good day. In last place with 17 points on count back and the winner of the plunger was Mike Brian. Members would like to thank Tina at The Olive Tree for the food, Terry Birtles and Joe King for the organisation. by Nig Bowler

Newly qualified bowls instructors at Benavista Bowls Club

L to R: Mike Old, Phil Coates, Roy Saunders, Mick Jones & John Carr, (Course Director) survivors who advanced to Day 2 on Tuesday. The most exciting moment of the day came in Level 5 when five players ended up all-in preflop in the same hand. After the under-thegun player raised to $1,100, a middle-position player moved all in for $11,700. Right behind the shove, Mac Sohrabi was in the hijack seat and reraised all in for $23,100. Then, the player on the button called all in for $16,550 before action slid over to Yucel Eminoglu in the big blind. Eminoglu tanked long enough to have two players call the clock on him, and he eventually moved all in as well. Action then fell back on the original raiser, who snap-called, and hands were revealed.

The 2013 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event got underway Saturday afternoon at the Rio AllSuite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The tournament – which every poker pro looks forward to each year – will see three separate Day 1 flights take place, and the series will wrap up when the November Nine is in place next weekend. A total of 943 players turned up for the first of three Day 1 flights of the 2013 WSOP Main Event, down from 1,066 participants last year. After five two-hour levels of play, Evan Panesis led the 584

Over recent years Benavista has been very active in recruiting new bowlers to the Bowls Club, many of whom have never bowled a bowl in their lives. The club’s policy has been to make sure that beginners get a good grounding in the techniques, laws and etiquette of the game before they are confident enough to participate in the mainstream activities of

the club. This has proved a sound policy for both the beginners and the more experienced members of the club.

Under-the-gun player: 4 dia, 3 dia Middle-position shove: A dia, 10 clubs Sohrabi: Q clubs, Q hearts Button: A clubs, K spades Eminogla: J spades , J dia A large crowd gathered to watch the board run out 7 spades, 6 hearts, 6 dia, 7 clubs, 4 spades, and Sohrabi's queens held up to win the main pot worth around $100,000. Eminoglu scooped a side pot from the player who held the 4 dia, 3 dia, and moved to $150,300 in chips. The other three players were eliminated.

Merson, who announced the traditional "shuffle up and deal" to kick off the festivities, coasted through the day to finish with $81,650, while Cada battled at the ESPN feature stage, dropping as low as $10,000 before finding a double up and ending with $26,100. Heinz was eliminated quickly after the dinner break. With the board reading: J hearts, 10 dia, 7 clubs, 7 spades, Q clubs, Heinz committed the rest of his chips with 7 hearts, 6 clubs, but was outdone by his opponent's A clubs, K spades for a rivered Broadway straight.

Several former Main Event champions graced the Amazon Room on Saturday. Pius Heinz, Joe Cada and defending champ Greg Merson were in the field looking to becoming the first two-time champ since Johnny Chan in 1988.

This programme has put quite a heavy workload for the club’s two qualified volunteer instructors, John Carr and Barry Pemberton. Fortunately help is at hand, as four new instructors, Mick Jones, Mike Old, Phil Coates and

Other notables who hit the rail on Day 1a were Abe Mosseri, T.J. Cloutier, Mike McDonald, Raymond Rahme, Jason Alexander, Chino Rheem, Gavin Smith and Soi Nguyen.

Roy Saunders, recently successfully completed an instructors’ course, directed by John Carr, under the auspices of the Spanish National Coaching Scheme, headed by Ruth Compton, Indalo BC.

In the last session of the course, ten willing volunteer beginners were assigned to the four trainee instructors who, unaided, attempted to put into practice all they had learned in the course. In the feedback review after the session all the beginners expressed very positive comments about the session, many

expressing the desire to attend follow-up instruction. Thus, Benavista BC is now equipped with a strong body of instructors, led by Barry Pemberton, who has been doing sterling work at the club over recent years.

Women’s UEFA Euro 2013 kicks off

The 2013 Uefa Women's European Championship kicks off in Sweden today (Wednesday) with England hoping to improve on their performance four years ago when they lost to Germany in the final. The Germans have won the last five tournaments but have suffered injuries to several key players, thereby offering the other 11 teams an opportunity to end their rival’s dominance. France, England and the hosts will head that chasing pack.

A Murricane at Wimbledon Finally the monkey is off the back of Andy Murray, and after 77 years of waiting Britain has a men´s singles Wimbledon winner. And what a match it was with Murray giving his absolute all. can't get my head around that. I still can't believe it's happened," said the British number one.

"I think that last game will be the toughest I'll play in my career."

Andy Murray said that this achievement was the "pinnacle of tennis". The 26-year-old Scot converted his fourth championship point to beat top seed Novak Djokovic 64 7-5 6-4 in what Murray described as a brutal match. "Winning Wimbledon, I


It was Britain's hottest day of the year with the court-side thermometer on Centre Court reading 40C and the temperature, added to the fearsome exchanges between the two finalists, contributed to what the second seed described as an "incredibly demanding match". "It was so tough, it was

so hot as well. I hadn't played any matches in the heat of the day," said Murray. The Wimbledon victory earned him a first prize of £1.6m to take his 2013 earnings so far to over £3.3m. Murray’s uncle, Niall Erskin, said on Monday’s BBC Breakfast programme that Andy had donated his winning cheque to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. His best friend and fellow tennis professional Ross Hutchins, is being treated for cancer at The Royal Marsden. Murray also donated his Aegon Championships prize money of £73,000 to the charity back in June, after winning at Queen’s Club. Novak Djokovic was very magnanimous in defeat and

said "The atmosphere was incredible for him, for me, not so much. But that's what I expected and that's how it was.” He later said that his defeat by Andy Murray was partly down to feeling exhausted after his gruelling semi-final victory. Top seed Djokovic took four hours and 43 minutes to defeat Juan Martin del Potro in five sets on Friday. "I cannot look for excuses but the previous match took a lot out of me," said Djokovic, the champion in 2011. You cannot take anything away from Andy Murray, he gave it everything, chasing shots that seemed impossible. He was outstanding and fully deserved his victory. By Mike Kerrigan

Froome holds firm in Pyrenees

Chris Froome put in one of the rides of his career to weather the storm and maintain yellow on stage nine of the Tour de France. The Team Sky rider was isolated early on without team-mates on a brutal parcours in the Pyrenees but rose to the occasion in the face of huge pressure to defend his race lead in style. Froome saw off the combined might of team Movistar and Team SaxoTinkoff to finish in an elite group of favourites, salvaging a tough day for Team Sky to open out an advantage of one minute and 25 seconds over nearest rival Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) heading into Monday’s rest day. Report courtesy of

Australia prop McKenzie was assistant coach of the victorious Wallabies for the 2001 Lions tour.
