FROM PAGE ONE In a statement, Guillén stated that, “it is inevitable that Mancebo would be removed from exercising his responsibilities. It was not easy, but I have no choice because he has systematically violated agreements between us”. This is the first definite move by the mayor to gain control of a government team who has systematically fought since their election, been unable to agree on many different subjects, and ultimately progressed through unilateral decisions, often in an underhanded manner, so as not to raise suspicion until plans had been made public, highlighting their inability to operate as a tri-party government team. In a statement from the government, the PSOE and Los Verdes say that they decided to dismiss the powers of the Councillor for Infrastructure, Tourism, Costa, Beaches and Communication, Pedro Mancebo. Both groups believe that this is an exercise in accountability to citizens. They state that it is the only way of ensuring the future for the government, rather than “getting lost in stories”. They also continue to accuse Mancebo of dividing the government team, and of systematically violating the resolutions adopted. He never worked in a team, has been disrespectful of other members of the government team and caused lack of coordination between the members, as well as failing to attend group meetings and invading other council powers. On their Facebook page, the PSOE stated that their reasons for the action were due to Mancebo´s, “disloyalty” and “lack of commitment”, and his policies have too often led to public outrage and ridicule, as for example in the last assembly of CLR-Claro”. Indeed, often in the public eye carrying out shows of the good work he was personally carrying out, Mancebo has also been involved, in one way or another, in public spectacles that would not be considered

Monday, 4th February, 2013 acceptable for somebody in public office, including the aggressive CLr and CLARO meeting of this week, where disagreements led to physical harm, threats and many more disagreements, not to mention the recent case of being involved in a brawl in a restaurant in Orihuela, for which he maintains he was the victim. Last week, there were strong allegations against the government team, and Mancebo, from the former Mayoress of Orihuela, Partido Popular councillor Mónica Lorente, who made claim to the disgrace that the neglect of the coast has suffered under Mancebo. Even former ally Bob Houliston gave him some credit for failing, pointing out that Mancebo has simply taken too much on. Immediately after the announcement, CLr councillor Juan Ignacio López-Bas, voluntarily withdrew his support for the roles assigned to him, stating that he can neither understand, nor assume nor accept the decision taken by the mayor to cease Mancebo´s powers. Marta Campillo, the unelected representative of human resources also withdrew her support for the government, taking the same stance as López-Bas. In a further statement, Bob Houliston responded by saying, “As soon as the dust settles C.L.A.R.O. will issue a separate and full press release describing and evaluating the circumstances leading to the removal of CLR from the government and the prospects of survival of a two- party Socialist and Green party government supported by only 9 out of 25 councillors in the Plenary of the Orihuela Town Hall.” Although the roles of infrastructure, tourism, the coast, beaches and communication which were covered by Mancebo, and trade and finance, which were under Lopez-Bas, will be shared between other bodies, the municipal government of Orihuela is now formed of 9 elected councillors, 6 from the PSOE and 3 from Los Verdes, a move which is set to be formulised over the next few days. There are now effectively 16 in opposition, 12 from the PP, 2 from CLr, and 2 unassigned. The competencies of infrastructure will pass to the PSOE, the Los Verdes take on the coast and beaches, and the Mayor himself will assume the responsibility of communication.

Howard James Roberts 18/11/44 – 27/1/13 Howard James Roberts passed away peacefully at home on Sunday 27 January after a short illness. He had been El Presidente of Colinas de la Zenia, fase 1, for over eight years, during which time Howard worked tirelessly for the good of his urbanisation and it’s residents. He arrived in Spain in 2002, having formerly owned a pub, The Fox and Rabbit, in ‘Heartbeat Country’ between Pickering and Whitby, in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales. But Spain quickly became his home and he was only too happy to become actively involved in the running of his urbanisation and its surrounds. Howard was a very sociable individual, well liked by all those with whom he came into contact. He will be sadly missed by Ann as well as all his family and many friends. The funeral service took place at Torrevieja Crematorium last Monday 28 January.

THE NOOK SUPPOR T SAN MIGUEL FAMILIES Customers of The Nook situated in in Urb. Villacosta II, Las Filipinas, were being lauded by The San Miguel Ayuntamiento last week following their donation of food to the Neighbourhood Association, San Miguel Archangel. The donation, worth 800 euros, was collected following a charity event held by the bar over Christmas. The event was made possible as a result of the generosity of Michelle Mint and customers of The Nook. Michelle, a mother of four children, said that she identifies with the neediest because she has been through similar situations herself. She said that she is keen to do whatever she can for such families to help them through this difficult time. The neighborhood association wholeheartedly welcomed this support from the bar. “They quite clearly share our concern and anxiety for the neediest families within the local community,” a spokesman said. “A true example of social integration.”

PERFECT FOR OLLI

Olli puts much of the success down to his ball which was drilled by Norwegian professional Tore Togerson

Sporting history was made at Ozone Bowling in Torrevieja last week when Olli Leppanen bowled he very first ‘perfect game’ ever seen at the leisure complex. The alley first opened in 2001. It has therefore been operating for over 12 years during which time hundreds of thousands of frames have been bowled by bowlers of many different standards, from mums and dads to casual and league bowlers, including many professionals who actually make their living at the game. Many

of these have played regularly at the very top level of the sport on the American PBA Tour. But last Tuesday night was no different for Olli. Just like any other he arrived to represent his ‘Team Finland’ in the Cornish Pride Los Dolses Ten Pin Bowling League. It was not until the tenth frame of his second game that the other bowlers playing in the league, realised that Olli had another chance to make the magic 300. He actually came close a couple of weeks ago. You could hear a pin drop as

Olli struck out with his tenth and his eleventh balls. Just one more strike required, was history about to be made? Everyone in the alley was willing him on and as Olli hit the pocket’ with his twelfth ball an enormous cheer went up from around the whole complex. He had bowled the ‘perfect game’ of 12 strikes in a row, giving him the maximum score of 300. Obviously Olli was absolutely delighted having gone close on a number of occasions. After the game he put much of his success down to his ball, a 15lb Columbia Scout, which was drilled by Tore Torgerson, a very famous Norwegian professional bowler, who came

down to Torrevieja last October when he played in an International competition and drilled a number of bowls for Torrevieja players. On the night Team Finland beat their opponents, Caballo Negro, 7-1 and as you might expect following such a per-

formance it was Olli and his team who topped all of the night’s highest scores, scratch and handicap. Team Finland also seem to be running away with the league, leading second placed Hall y Day by 16 points with just eight weeks of

the season remaining. League sponsors, Cornish Pride, also offered their congratulations to Olli, the achievement of which they hope to mark with a suitable presentation in the coming weeks.

ENGLISH CLASSES IN TORREVIEJA BY EVA TEJEDOR More than a hundred Spanish students are enjoying immersing themselves in the English language, thanks to an new initiative at Torrevieja’s Youth Centre, the CIAJ. After a discussion between course coordinator Crystal East and Councillor for Education Rosario Martinez, informal English conversation classes started on November 4, 2012 and have been growing in popularity ever since. The idea is very simple; native English speakers host a table of students and talk about whatever comes to mind. It’s an opportunity for Spanish students, who have at least an intermediate knowledge of English, to enjoy speaking English outside of a structured classroom environment, which everyone seems to enjoy. The CIAJ, Centre for Information and Youth Animation is located on Torrevieja’s seafront at Paseo Juan Aparicio Number 5, beside Burger King and the Cantina Cafe. Such has been the success of the course that Crystal is now seeking more volunteers, and if you would like to know more about the conversational classes,you can visit during class times, send an email to Crystal at crystaleast16@yahoo.co.uk or phone 644136711 or

Crystal East, Graham Knight and Rosario Martinez outside the CIAJ 965703310. The conversation classes take place on Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 to 12:00 noon and Wednesday and Thursday from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Last Tuesday, the centre had a visit from Councillor for Foreigners and Education, Rosario Martinez and the Director of the Foreign Residents Office, Graham Knight. On Tuesday, more than seventy Spanish students were in conversation with English speakers. The courses are free and only stop during the summer months and holiday periods. Director of the Foreign Residents Office, Graham Knight, chats with Spanish students and volunteers

IT’S NOT SO BA D We are back to exactly where we were 22 days after the election when Bob decided to desert Pedro. Antonia Moreno was trying to bully Pedro into obeying her commands with the help of Monserrate Guillen. At the same time Monica Lorente was trying to woo Pedro to her side. Pedro is unlike all the other party leaders, he is patient, he wants to help the people, he works on the ground with the people and he meets them face to face because he cares about the people. Antonia Moreno states publicly that Pedro does not respect her authority – what authority? She is the leader of a political party the same as Pedro, she is a teacher and he is a solicitor, she is now back teaching 30 children, Pedro is working for the 90,000 people of Orihuela. The socialist snob Antonia looks down on Pedro. She controls her party and the mayor, she demands that Pedro bow down to her but he won’t. Why did all this happen now? In the last month alone Pedro blocked Antonia from spending all the proceeds from the land sale, insisting that 40% must go to Coastal projects as she agreed before the sale,

Antonia did not like this. Pedro pointed out that now was the wrong time to renovate her street because of the traffic congestion in Orihuela while the new railway bridge was being built, she really did not like that. In the town hall there is an office assigned to CLR where their departments work together. Antonia forced her person into that office and when Antonia’s lady was told to move to another area, Antonia did not like that. Town hall employees that are paid to work 37? hours per week (by us), they only work 35 hours a week. The CLR team responsible for Human Resources instructed workers to work the 2? hours that they were shorting the public every week and Antonia took major exception to that. This is really why school teacher Antonia has put Pedro in the bold corner. Pedro is not obeying the school teacher. Pedro must be disciplined until he does everything that the teacher wants. Pedro deserves to be slapped. Why can’t he be a good boy like Monserrate, who does everything he’s told?

TOREVIEJA PLANT LIFE OFFERED PROTECTION

A new ordinance has been implemented in Torrevieja, aimed at protecting parkland and the environment, whilst allowing for action to be taken against those who cause damage to the natural surroundings, either maliciously, or by means of such recent activities as the spread of aggressive plants that have almost wiped out some of the most delicate, native specimens of the coast. The ordinance requires a catalogue of plant life to be collated, indicating the current situation and the amounts of each specimen that currently resides. Characteristics such as size, age, beauty, composition, or the cultural uniqueness that makes proposed sites worthy of protection, “for the community”, will be compiled, and there will be a six month project time to conclude an action plan for those that need special protection. Incidents which then result in risking or damaging the plant life, may well lead to fines of up to 3,000 euro for those responsible for damage to the catalogued flora. It is hoped that the move will go some way to turning back the clock of damage caused by the

rapid growth of Torrevieja, the damage caused by developments such as underground car parks, as the near extinction of some plant which have suffered, such as the spread of cactus plants which many residents used for ornamental purposes, but then spread into the natural environment. The ordinance contains 82 pages with all sorts of technical guidance on trees, annual irrigation and specifications for the provision of copies in the streets and housing projects, and was presented by the PP government team, with the sole purpose of updating the laws to speed up the process of taking action. The Los Verdes green party had already tried to offer protection to some of the older trees in the city, many which are over 100 years of age, such as one which The Leader reported on recently, suffering damage by building work on a retail site next to a coastal home owned by a resident of Madrid. The suggestion and implementation of this ordinance met with some surprise that the PP group would try to take action with an environmentally focussed agenda, although the proof of value will come in the implementation of the law in the future.

‘Twitters from the Atlantic’ Barrie Mahoney was a teacher, head teacher and school inspector in the UK, as well as a reporter in Spain, before moving to the Canary Islands as a newspaper editor. He is still enjoying life in the sun as a writer and author.

Les Misera b les in the Canary Islands It has been a long time since I have been to the cinema, maybe ten years or so. It’s not that I don't like movies; it is that I much prefer to see a live show or concert, or watching movies at home. Indeed, one of the things that I do miss as an expat, alongside Marmite and mince pies, is the occasional visit to London’s West End or a Madrid theatre to see the latest play or musical. One of my all time favourites is Les Miserables, which I think I have now seen seven times, and never tire of its moving plot and exhilarating, spiritual music. The only exception to this acute neglect of the cinematic experience was a one-time visit to an open-air cinema. It was a bit of a novelty, and fascinating experience to watch a movie beneath a starlit sky on a warm summer’s evening, but not one that I would care to repeat. I, like many others, found that mosquitoes and other flying insects feasting and attacking our skin tended to lead to a lack of concentration on the film. So, after ten years, in was off to our local multiplex, to see Les Miserables. The cinema seemed to be mainly focussed upon selling huge buckets of popcorn, pick and mix sweets - Woolworth's style, as well as huge quantities of over priced fizzy drinks. I shuddered to think of the calorific and caffeine content included in these treats, but recognise that it is all part of the cinematic

experience and, I guess, forms a substantial and welcome part of the overall takings. The cinema showing our film was small, yet very comfortable, and I was very impressed with the comfort of the armchair style seats - much improved since the last time I visited any cinema. There were the usual run of trailers advertising future films, but sadly no ‘Pearl and Dean’ advertising or a pre-feature film! Yes, those days have long gone, as have those smartly dressed ladies bearing a tray full of frozen goodies at half time. What did surprise me, in this age of 3D, Dolby, surround and stereo sound, was the appalling quality of sound during this film. The sound appeared to be coming from a couple of speakers directly beneath the screen, with no surround or stereo sound in existence. Maybe the right knobs on the control panel hadn't been adjusted correctly, and I was itching to help the projectionist to sort out the problem with his woofers and tweeters. Sadly, there was no one in sight to ask, and I guess that the controls for the film were pre-set and being operated from a remote control centre somewhere in Madrid. We get far better sound quality from our basic home cinema system. However, a range of interesting sounds from the bucket popcorn and nachos chompers were received in full stereo sound, as were the anticipated coughs and sniffs during the emotional scenes of the film. I was surprised that very young children were also in the audience, including one group of seven-year-olds, complete with balloons and hats, who seemed to arrive from a children’s birthday party. The children were mostly very well behaved, although the Brit and teacher in me felt distinctly uncomfortable when I realised that they too were witnessing the unpleasant, yet brief, prostitute/rape scene, as well as other violence. Clearly, there are no British Board of Film Censor categories and prohibitions over here.

It was an experience. The film was good, but I think I would be adding, “Could do better” on the end of term report card for the cinema. As for those cynics who said that making a film would put people off from seeing the stage show. Certainly not. I know which version I much prefer and I will be heading to London’s West End for a refresher the next time that I am in the UK.

BODY FOUND FLOATING IN TORREVIEJA HARBOUR The body of a woman, believed to be of 65 years of age, was seen floating in the water within the harbour of Torrevieja on Friday. The socking discovery was made at around 8 in the morning, dressed in winter clothing, and thought to have fallen from a boat and drifted into the harbour area. The woman was seen floating face down with no apparent signs of violence and was wearing jewellery at the time of finding, leading investigators to believe that there were no criminal suspicions attached to the case, although they are also not ruling out suicide. Officers from the Local Police and Guardia Civil were assisted by fire fighters who retrieved the lifeless body of the woman, who was then taken to Alicante for an autopsy to be carried out.

ROBBERY IN QUESADA

Judicial Police are investigating the robbery that occurred in an amusement arcade in Quesada on Sunday, where a man tied and gagged the owner inside the office so that he could rob the premises. The initial investigation reveals that the suspect was believed to be a lone male, who was wearing a black outfit and a hat, and was caught on CCTV in the premises, although this has not yet assisted in identifying the robber. The owner of the business had entered the office and caught the thief, but was then gagged and bound. He had to be treated in Torrevieja Hospital for shock after the incident. The owner´s wife was serving in the bar and heard her husband shouting, which alerted her to what was happening. She found her husband lay on the floor as the robber fled the scene. They summoned help and the local police were quick to attend, who then called an ambulance to treat the man for shock. The owners of the establishment, originally from Argentina, bought the business two years ago in an area which has a large British population.

PILAR BRIDGE NOMINATED FOR AWARD El Puente del Beso, or the Kiss Bridge, in the town of Pilar de la Horadada, is one of four pieces of infrastructure that has been nominated as a candidate of best concrete construction of the last four years. The team of architects from the University of Alicante responsible for the creation say that the structural design, “was based on the Japanese art of folding paper, origami, but we replaced the paper with concrete”. Completed in 2012, the project is said to relate to two different parts of Pilar de la Horadada, divided by an artificial watercourse that collects rain water. Each side of the bank of the canal is interpreted as a different way to cross from side to side. The pedestrian bridge is a new way of defining the passage as the bridge offers “a kiss, a caress of two structures” The overall length of the structures is more than 60 meters and 2.5 meters wide. The bridge project also has a practical use as it acts as a flood defence to the park land in the event of rain.

HIGH DRAMA ON THE STREETS OF TORREVIEJA

A spectacular scene evolved on Avenida Tomás Boj Andreu in the Los Altos area of Torrevieja this week, when eight local police vehicles, Guardia Civil, the fire brigade and an ambulance all rushed to the scene of an action movie like incident late at night. The 112 emergency call centre received a call at around 22:45 on Tuesday night, reporting that the driver of a vehicle had lost control and crashed, after somebody had pointed a firearm at him as he drove along the road. He and his two passengers were subsequently requiring urgent attention. However, upon arriving at the scene, the officers were suspicious of both the report, and the potential amount of alcohol that the driver had consumed. A breathe test of the driver was carried out, of which the results were positive. It was also then confirmed that the report of a potential assault by a person with a firearm was in fact not true. Officers were unable to ascertain who made the initial telephone report, whether it was a witness or somebody involved in the crash. The vehicle in which the driver and two passengers were travelling in, all from South America, crashed and overturned on the road was blocking the exit to one of its occupants. That's when the 112 received notice citing the threat of an armed man. HA SAMU ambulance attended to the driver who suffered a minor injury to his arm. At that point, the occupants of the crashed car then changed the story and blamed another vehicle for the crash; a vehicle which they say then fled the scene. An investigation is being carried out.

WORKERS FACE PAY FREEZE Some 230,000 shop workers will see their salaries frozen until 2016, with the exception of consumer led incentives, as well as being forced to work on Sundays and holidays without compensation, according to plans agreed by the Spanish National Association of Department Stores (Anged), whose members include the likes of Carrefour, Auchan, Eroski, IKEA, El Corte Ingles, Cortefiel, and C & A, and the Fetico y Fasga unions However, the agreement has not yet been signed by the CCOO, UGT, LAB and CIG unions, as they are looking at negotiating other terms also based on performance of the consumer index. For its part, the retail group has promised that the agreement would secure jobs for the entire term of the agreement.

CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR TORREVIEJA PENSIONERS COST 8,000 EUROS The Alternativa Popular (APTCe) has criticised the mayor, Eduardo Dolon, for spending over 8,000 euros of taxpayers money on sending Christmas greetings to almost 18,000 Torrevieja pensioners. Councillor Dolores Albaladejo explained that 17,454 envelopes were used to convey the greetings at a cost of 0.098 euros each, 1710 euros in total. Postage amounted to 6883 euros in addition to which there were two copier toners used and 35 packets of printer paper. Each letter has cost approximately 50 cents from council funds. Not costed were the man hours involved of the council employee who was tasked with producing and distributing the letters. Dolon said that in the letter he confirmed his "commitment" not only to work for the city and its citizens, but "to be honest in all his dealings", and that he recognized that 2012 was quite probably not "the best year of our lives." He said that sending this type of greeting was a custom inherited from the previous mayor, Pedro Hernandez, but he was inclined to use Christmas cards without a message. As the correspondence was sent out in Castilian many of the 15,000 non Spanish residents who were unable to read it went along to municipal offices to have it translated.

TORREVIEJA OFFICE FOR EDE-ENERGY

EDE-Energy is a pioneering company which specializes in the assembly and maintenance of charging points for electric vehicles. With last week’s announcement that it will open an office in Torrevieja a spokesman said that it now intends to implement this ground breaking technology throughout Alicante and Murcia. Commercial Manager, Antonio Luis Fernandez, explained that there are currently many municipalities that are starting to equip themselves with the electric charging stations that are needed for electric vehicles to circulate independently. The electric car produces no greenhouse gas emissions and no noise pollution. Fernandez explained that the Torrevieja based office is primarily intended to serve the administrations concerned in siting such stations in residential and tourist areas in Alicante and Murcia, and with residents increasingly aware and interested in purchasing this type of vehicle, for urban journeys, the demand will increase enormously in the next 2 or 3 years. As well as the obvious advantages with much lower emission and pollution the expenditure required for running an electric vehicle is three times lower than that derived from fossil fuel. But the one major obstacle preventing the launch of electric cars in Spain is the absence of a supply network for charging them up. However in 2012, only 1,500 such vehicles were registered in Spain. Fernandez feels though that the improvement to the charging network will bring with it a corresponding increase in the number of electric cars that are purchased.

FOOTBALLER CRITICIZED FOR DRIVING IN CAST

A driving school in Cáceres has urged the Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) to take action against Real Madrid´s goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, for driving a car whilst his left arm was in plaster from an injury sustained during the semi finals of the Copa del Rey against Valencia. The driving school states that millions of people would have seen the pictures in the press and on TV, and it sets a bad example to people, if no action is taken against him. However, the DGT has dismissed the sanction because it, “cannot act on a simple picture of a media”. The director of the Groupo Placentina school, Antonio Macedo, says that the problem is that teachers will embark on a road training lecture, aspiring learners to a safe driving future, and they tell students that, “you cannot drive with one hand in plaster as it causes lack of mobility and is needed for safe driving”." Macedo has insisted that the DGT, “act on its own or make an exception to the rule that exempts celebrities and elite athletes”. It might be worthwhile Mecedo flicking through the back copies of The Leader, as in November 2011, we reported on the DGT fining film production company Tripictures 30,000 euro, because a poster for a film, Larry Crowne, shows the actors on a scooter but not wearing helmets. We reported, “Article 52 of Spanish traffic laws prohibits any publicity, in print, audio or video that may incite excessive speed, reckless driving, situations of danger or any other circumstance involving conduct contrary to the principles of the Law. As the actors Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts are riding a scooter without wearing the mandatory headgear on the poster for the film Larry Crowne, which was released in September in Spain, the image on the poster contravenes that law.” Pop singer Shakira has also now been highlighted for a video in which she wasn´t wearing a crash helmet on a scooter, “what these people do, given their popularity, is what most permeates much of society”, Macedo concluded.

CARNIVAL’S A ‘DRAG’ IN TORREVIEJA

BY EVA TEJEDOR Torrevieja’s Carnival started in earnest on Friday, with the fourth National Drag Queen Contest in Torrevieja’s Municipal Theatre.

The event was again presented by the ineffable Lady G and in this first year as that the contest has been designated as a Fiesta of Provincial Tourist Interest, the quality of the eight participants was much higher than pre-

vious editions. Torrevieja Drag Queen 2013 was Perlam, who received a cash prize of €1,000 euros. with €500 awarded the 1st Lady Drag Queen, Steinburg and finally Vetada Bandolera, who received third prize and the title of 2nd bridesmaid! The winner of the contest, along with a cash reward, also takes pride and place on the last, and most colourful float, after the Carnival Queen herself, during Torrevieja’s two parades. This year, Torrevieja’s Carnival has been awarded the title of ‘Provincial Tourist Interest’ and is being heavily promoted at FITUR in Madrid this week, during Spain’s most important Tourism Exhibition. Along with the Drag Queen, there are two other major floats in the procession, the first for the Junior Carnival Queen, which this year is Carolina Valero, the daughter of the former, popular Councillor for Foreigners, Pedro Valero. Her float will be spectacularly adorned with a fantasy called "In a dream garden." Carolina is 12 years old and studying first year at Colegio La Purisima. Torrevieja’s Carnival Queen 2013, is 28 year old Laura Comparsa, who will be smiling and waving to the crowd, scantly dressed in a wonderful cre-

ation that would not be out of place in Rio’s Sambadrome. All three Queens plus more than 30 local schools and performance groups will be taking part in this year’s parades. Next Saturday, the Night Parade starts at 10.00pm and runs the length of Ramon Gallud, from in front of the Town Hall, to the square at J Mullins Pub. Wrap up warm, take your camera, tuck a plastic bag in your pocket to store the sweets that are thrown to the crowd and enjoy one of the most colourful and fun festivities in Torrevieja’s Cultural Calendar.

BAR ROOM PHILOS0PHY OR SIMPLE FACT? What would a bar or pub be like without the right type of fur niture niture to set it off off and provide provide it with the right atmosphere?....not atmosphere?....not much I would suggest, which is exactly what your potential clientele will think as well; they simply won't retur retur n.

“The final stage of a project after all the hard work and stress that has gone into fitting out a new unit from the ground up, or even refitting an existing bar, is, in my opinion, the most important,” said Stephen Bolger, the owner of Bolger Muebles in Torre Pacheco. “Whilst the finished project looks good prior to us bringing in our furniture, when an order is delivered it looks absolutely fantastic. When everything is in place just prior to the opening night, the furniture is the final touch, setting everything off. Instant atmosphere, as it were.” “That's why, in our opinion, it is vital to choose the right type of furniture for the type of bar that you have in mind,” said Stephen, “and to this end, we have a wide range of tables and chairs to choose from, either refurbished or brand new stock, ready to go and all made to a high commercial U.K. specification and standard for durability.” “We have supplied our bar furniture to many establishments, both up and down the coast and inland, for several years, and we find that the first time a customer pays us a visit, they are amazed to find such a wide choice, exactly the type of furniture they had in mind, and with-

out having to go to the trouble of ordering from the U.K. usually with the additional expense involved for transport and often with the chance of being disappointed once it finally arrives.” At Bolger Muebles you will be able to browse through their comprehensive range stock, initially perhaps just to get a few ideas or take some measurements, enabling you then to make a plan to see what will go where, without having to buy too much or too little furniture. Stephen said that most of his customers start with 8 or 10 tables, and with chairs to match. Usually they return within a short time to top up their initial order with half a dozen small bar stools, either for the end of the tables or to put into corners of the room. Clients are able to choose from traditional pub style furniture with solid or upholstered seats or the more classic or modern designs, such as Victorian style bench seats, poseur tables, farmhouse stools, antique leather covered barstools, dining tables with original old antique sewing machine bases for Irish pubs, modern solid ashwood 2.5 meter coffee tables for trendy bars or round cast iron Ladies Head tables for the more traditional English pub settings. So if you are planning to open a bar or pub soon or simply wish to refurb your exsisting one for the new season ahead, then we welcome and invite you to call and see the extensive range that we have on offer at Bolger Muebles. Bolger Muebles can be found at Avd. Juan Carlos 1 169,Torre Pacheco, Murcia, on the Torre Pacheco road F30 km. 8 after leaving the exit no. 790 off the AP7, heading toward Cartagena, not far from Murcia Airport, San Javier. If you wish to call for directions or any other information then please contact Stephen on 968 57 9993 or 606 568 516 or you can Email. stephenbolger477@msn.com See the main advertisement on page 4.

POLICE UNION DENOUNCES IT’S OWN VEHICLE FLEET Elche’s local police and fire fighters union has denounced the city council saying that many of the vehicles in their current fleet are in a worrying state of disrepair.

The last time Elche received any new vehicles was in 2008

The most recent vehicles brought into the fleet are now over five years old and many have recorded mileages of between 300,000 and 400,000 kilometres. Vehicles are regularly breaking down in the city centre with policemen having to push them off the road and into places of safety so as not to disrupt the flow of traffic. Some cars have their bumper brackets tied on which is of especial concern when responding to emergency situations and the union are now insisting that local government provides minimum guarantees for the provision of police services. But the union says that it has been denouncing the mayor for over two years now and such is the situation that they are currently in that the councilor responsible is now proposing to use unclaimed and abandoned cars in the police compound.

PLAYA FLAMENCA RESIDENCIA OFFICE TO REOPEN The Oficina de Extranjería in Alicante has said in a reversal of the closure of the National Police office in the Orihuela Costa town hall,that the facility will reopen soon. The department will now be working closely with the town hall for the provision of support staff and associated training to be carried out by the Commissioner of the National Police, and would therefore reopen within a short period of time.

BABY BOO M IN TORREVIEJA Torrevieja hospital has released data relating to the number of babies born during 2012, revealing some interesting statistics on the future generations of the city. In total, there were 1,251 births, 8 babies less than the previous year. Of that figure 627 were boys, the remaining 624 were girls. There were a total of 57 nationalities represented in the new delivery section, of which the majority were Spanish, a total of 552, followed by Moroccans with 144, and the British came in third with 86 new members of the human race. The average age of mum was put at between 31 and 35, with the oldest being 49 and the youngest just

15. The average weight of baby was 3.2kg, or 7.05 pounds. The modern hospital in Torrevieja caters for every element of childbirth, including before and after, and operates 24 hours per day, all year round. There are six treatment and recovery rooms, two delivery rooms and an operating theatre ready to face any emergency, and they pride themselves on treating each case on its own merit, according to the care needs of each patient, and always respecting the dignity, autonomy and privacy of people who use the service.

A CLEAR VISION FOR EMAUS Specsavers Opticas in Calpe met with Carole Saunders and Montserrant Filter from the Children of EMAUS charity this month to confirm the store’s ongoing commitment to providing free sight tests and glasses for EMAUS’ children during 2013. Specsavers Calpe have been providing complimentary glasses for the charity’s children, over the last 18 months and were also involved in their Christmas toy collection drive. The Friends of the Children of EMAUS are a completely voluntary group of individuals, based in the Northern Costa Blanca, whose purpose is to raise much-needed funds to improve the lives of the children in the EMAÚS children’s shelters. They are

also developing relationships with local businesses and individuals to secure products and services which the children greatly need. Montserrat commented that this sort of direct help for the children had been essential, particularly over the last few years as the Association has relied more and more on local individuals, businesses and charities to help plug the gap left by the reduction in direct funding. Mike Stone of Specsavers Calpe confirmed their ongoing commitment to the charity; “Children’s vision can change quickly when they are growing, so it’s important we provide continuous support to ensure they get the care that they need. We’re delighted to be involved in such an important cause.” To find out how you can support the children of EMAUS visit www.fcemaus.friendsofthechildrenofemaus.com Specsavers Opticas in Calpe are located in Avenida Ejércitos Españoles No. 6, Edificio Apolo VII, Local 22. To book your free eye test call 965 835367, or find your nearest store visit www.specsavers.es The photograph shows Montserrant Filter, President of the Association Emaus, Claus Weger, Optometrist Specsavers Calpe and Carole Saunders, Calpe Town councillor and President of the "Friends of the Children of EMAUS"

CF MIL PALMERAS DADS JOIN UP FOR A GOOD CAUSE On Sunday 27th January CF Mil Palmeras entered a team in the Reunite charity adult football tournament that was held at Polideportivo Pilar de la Horadada. A total of eight teams of 8 a side gave up their time to support the charity which was organised by ‘Que Pasa Bar’ Villa Martin. Although Mil Palmeras didn’t progress to the final they battled hard and only lost by the odd goal in their first 2 group games, but everyone enjoyed the day and agreed that this would be the first of many charity tournaments that they would support.

ZUMBATHON SUCCESS Looking very relaxed in his new broadcasting home, Darren James is pictured during his first Around Midday show on EXITE Radio. It was also Darren’s 52nd birthday. “It’s always nice to be on air on your birthday, but strange combining that celebration with that of beginning on a new station.”, said Darren after he finished. Darren seemed to immediately fit in with the EXITE format, playing a popular mix of both modern and traditional middle-of-the-road music. His first Mystery Voice of Professor Brian Cox proved an easy start for many! You can catch Darren every Tuesday and Thursday between 1100 and 1400 with AROUND MIDDAY – sponsored by the Hotel Doña Monse in Los Balcones – and with the SATURDAY BREAKFAST – sponsored by Medcare, Benijofar – from 0900 to 1200. Keep a listen out on 89.2, 93.1 or online at www.theleader.info for some great prizes during every show!

Last week, popular Zumba instructor Lisa Gordon spoke to Mark Nolan on Exite Radio about an event she was involved in. Now, we can reveal just how successful the efforts of everyone involved have been. On Sunday 27th January Jan Harding hosted a fun packed Zumbathon in the Centre for the 3rd Age, Algorfa and raised over 850 euro for the needy in the area. Lasting 3 hours the event was guest presented by local instructors Lisa Gordon, Kat Nadine, Davinia Cases Garcia, Zuzana Balikova, Sue Venebles and Angie Nicholls. Zumbathons are very popular and are an effective and extremely fun way of raising much needed funds for charity, they are also a great way to get involved with events in your community and burn off some calories.

Zumba classes are held in numerous venues in the area why not try one and see what all the hype’s really about, you never know you might just enjoy it and learn some new dance moves. A huge thank you and congratulations to everybody who got involved, your work and your efforts are changing lives.

Monday, 4th February, 2013 ADVERTISING HOTLINE  966 73 0057 LEADER HAPPY DAYS LA SIESTA GOLF SOCIETY CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF SOCIETY We had a low turnout (for us) of 22 players at Roda, due to half a doz going to or still in U.K., the weather was fantastic, sunny and warm, and although the course was not as "pretty" as usual, it was in very good condition, we had some very good scores on the back 9, (we started on the 10th) followed by some poor scores on the front 9. Only one player managed to master the course and that was Nigel "Slimline" Cawther, with a very fine 37pts, (another cut Nigel). Six points ahead of second place. Results as follows. 1st. Nigel Cawthra, 37pts. 2nd Dave Butler 31 pts. 3rd Peter Curley 31pts 4th Kevin Wenn 30 pts. Best front 9, (joint winners) Fred Noakes and Tony Wilson with 21pts, best back Andy Shuttle 15pts. Nearest pins, 2nd Kevin Wenn, 7th,Mike Newton, 13th,Dee Mc Grath, Chris Blown would have won the 11th, but as he wasn’t playing he didn’t. Our Captain, (Kedric Rhodes) has chosen t o support the charity helping the needy, he held a raffle. (voucher for two at Roda) this was won by Kevin Barratt. Due to refurbishment we were unable to return to Marinasol Restaurant for our presentations,(it will be even better when It reopens.) We were very well looked after by Roda's staff, thanks to them all, we will soon be back. Next game is at Saurines on 12th Feb., payments at Marinasol bar/restaurant on 11th Feb (Mon) 5-6 pm, see you there lads and lassies. Robin (the scribe) Adams.

26 JANUARY 2013 - Two days earlier the course at Campoamor had to be closed when a Force 9 wind ripped through, causing quite a bit of damage to the trees and endangering the golfers. Luckily by the Saturday the wind had abated somewhat so we were able to stage this annual event. During the week we held our AGM when Pam Howard, our Lady Captain, stepped down and handed over the reins to Ray Scott. George Rawlings becomes Vice Captain. Pam has worked very hard for us in 2012 and she will be sorely missed in that role. She’s clearly demob-happy (see the results below) and looking forward to getting married to Martin next month in Las Vegas. We wish them both every happiness. 30 golfers set out and some soon began to clamour for our Pro, Joe Dean’s head, in the belief that he was responsible for the “ridiculous tee and pin positions” and turning the 18th into an absolute card-killer. It wasn’t until the evening that our brand new and illustrious Captain, Ray Scott, revealed that he had planned and arranged it all. Boy! What a year we’re all going to have! The results: 1st Ray Scott 33 points, 2nd Colin Layton 33 points (courtesy of Joe Dean, some say!), 3rd Alex

Stottor 33 points Longest Drive – Men (2nd) Andrew James Longest Drive – Ladies (18th) Pam Howard Nearest the Pin – Men (6th) Ben Hines Nearest the Pin – Ladies (15th) Pam Howard Our photograph shows the winners in the company of our President, Mike O’Regan, and George Rawlings, Vice Captain. Pam Howard kindly organised the stylish glassware prizes. In the evening we held a formal dinner/dance in the Clubhouse which gave everyone the chance to dress up in their finery. Nearly 70 members and guests enjoyed a superb meal laid on by the management and staff and presented in their usual pleasant and friendly fashion. Dancing was to the music of our old friend Jackie White which took us well past midnight. La Siesta has been based at Campoamor GC for the last 22 years. We are a society with a strong social side and are lucky enough to play every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday on a very good, but not exactly easy, course to a high standard with very pleasant people. Why not contact our Captain, Ray, on 646 416 182 if you wish to know more or would, maybe, like to join us for a game.

THE CELTS GOLF CLUB A warm welcome back to all our members this was our first tournament of 2013 at La Serena Golf our new home base for the coming year. With 42 members and guests registered for the day we looked forward to some competitive golf and good scores. I don’t know what has happened to the weather but we had gale force winds on the day which made the course extremely difficult. The day was cold to begin with but as is the case here on the Costa it was not long before we were enjoying 20 degrees and bright sunshine, but I wish somebody had remembered to turn off the fans. The golf course was in excellent condition and the greens, although firm were very true and constant. We would like to thank Bruno and Raquel and the staff at La Serena for their assistance in ensuring that we had a very pleasurable day out. What a pleasant change to have such accommodating and professional staff catering for your needs. With so many members we decided to have two member’s categories and a visitors section the results were as follows; in the members section, Valencia registered member’s prize, Dave Kirk 31 points. Visitors Tony Prew with 31 points. Category II second was Luis Galindo with 33 points and the winner of the category Mr consistent John Coholan with 33 points. In Category I second place went to Tom Halpin with 34 points and the best score of the day went to Alan Woods with 36 points. The gross was won by our president John O’Brien with 26 points. The nearest the pin prizes went to Wayne Williams hole 3 Hep Kinnear hole 9. Hole 9 nearest the pin went to our much improving vice captain Julian Lopez. Kaye Chandler hole 15 and Alan Woods hole 17. The longest drive went to John O’Brien on hole 18. We decided to have a novel prize for the person who worked the hardest for the least points and this went to Daniel Cebrian, we will guard your score with the greatest of discretion. Also we recognised our senior member Dermot Carroll with a presentation of a lemon for our elder lemon. Both Dermot and Daniel received their prizes with the grace that the occasion deserved. Unfortunately we had two or three late cancellations, as you can imagine it takes a lot to organise and at least two days notice that you are not able to play would be helpful as we had to reorganise the first tee times on the day. Please advise John O’Brien if you are not able to play. We welcome to the club our new members and I hope you had a good day. I was especially delighted with the arrival of two new female members; maybe all the pleading for ladies of the area to join might be paying off. We really welcome ladies and all to our club. Can I remind members that membership is now due for renewal. For further details contact 662422605 or e-mail johnobrienalicante@gmail.com.

SAN MIGUEL GS AT BONALBA

SAN JAVIER GS - ALTORREAL

ABBEY ANGLING MATCH FISHING

This week we played a stableford competition at Bonalba and what a difference in the weather after last week's freeze this week a lot of the players were back in shorts for the first time this year. The course was in pretty good condition with the greens a little slow to what we have been used to just lately but considering the problems the course has suffered just lately the green staff have done an excellent job in getting this beautiful course back to itself. Nearest the pin winners today were Brian Mulligan, Ben Price, Derek Johnston and Ken Flaherty. Third in Silver Category was Brian Mulligan (33), Second Keith Stevenson(35) and First once again was Mr. Consistency Ray Ewins (37) just shows what a lesson every couple of week's does for you. In Gold Category Third was Ben Price(32) Second on count back Paul Guest (32), and First was Ken Flaherty(34). The winner of the Abacus this week was Jacqui Rust(apparently she was overheard to say that she is taking knitting back up again). Next week we are at Villamartin(6/2) followed by Las Ramblas(13/2) and then on to Las Colinas(20/2) so if you want a game on any Wednesday book in on the website www.smgs.org or give Barry a ring on 966 73 1033 and you will be made very welcome.

There is plenty of water coming in from the channels, but the level is still about a foot below the normal. 1st Terry (Swing em) Screen with 8.440kg fishing the feeder using maggot. 2nd Bill (The Master) Reade with 7.000kg fishing the pole using paste. 3rd Andy (The web man) Stevenson with 6.100kg fishing the feeder using maggot Our next Club meeting is at the Abbey Tavern on the 12th February at 7.30pm.All details are available on our web site www.abbeyangling.com or from the match secretary Terry Screen on 965 32 8368

What a Day gale force wind blowing and so cold but we still had a great turn out of 32 players many of them wishing that they had stayed at home with the weather. But we played and what a close competition it was with just 4points between the top six pairs with four places being sorted on count back. The course was not in bad shape with the greens being very quick, not what you want with a wind of 35km. When we had all finished I think we felt we have done 18 rounds then 18 holes we where all batter by that wind. From third to sixth the pairs all finished with 38pts so after a long sort out on count back Roy Herbert and Alan Clarke took the third place. In second place on 41pts came Bill McLaughlin and Bernie Waspe just missing out by one point to the winners Mick Hardy and Frank Broadhurst on 42pts scoring 21points on both nines. I would like to end by thanking everyone for playing and making it fun on a day that was not good to play golf being very cold and windy. The next Society's game is on Monday, 4th February 2013 at La SERENA. The format is MEDALFORD (front holes - Medal, Back holes – Stableford & subtract the Stableford points from the Nett score). Payday is on Saturday, 2nd February 2013 at La Serena, in the bar area, between 11.00 and 12.00 hours. Diary Dates - Monday, 4th February La Serena Medalford 1st Tee – 10.00 Wednesday, 20th February Corvera Individual Stableford 1st Tee – 10.00 Monday, 4th March Vistabella Individual Stableford 1st Tee – 12.00

What a strange period we are going through. Firstly Catorce Kats move to TJ’s Bar and become TJ’s Jays and this week we have the closure of the Windsor Tavern and our 3 teams move to Hoggies Bar and become Hoggies Ospreys, Falcons and Kestrels. The transitional implications are testing the memory buds. Anyway, to this week’s comments, La Siesta Sharks dipped their headlights once again in their close loss to Basil’s Jaguars out of Ebony & Ivory and just clung on to top spot. For the Sharks 2 pairs had 2 wins each while the Jaguar’s pair of Steve and Elaine maximised with 3 wins. Up at The Sportsman, Graham’s “B” team also just dipped out to Ayliff’s visitors from Shellys Bar who closed out a close win with 2 pairs forging 2 wins while for the Sportsman only Graham S. And Tony attained the heights of 2 wins. In Catorce it was a big win for Steve’s Sportsman “A” team against John’s Lions home team with all 3 pairs taking 2 wins each while for the Lions team, their 3 pairs halved that with 1 win each. At the new venue of Hoggies Bar, Richard’s Ospreys just missed out to Sue’s Jays from TJ’s Bar even though Sid and Sue G. hit a top score of 3 wins while 2 of the Jays pairs had 2 wins each. Also in Hoggies, Russell’s Kestrels surrendered in a close finish to John’s Leopards from Catorce who had John and Tony on form with 3 wins while only captain Russell and spouse Diane reached for the skies with their 2 wins. In Bar Virgo Derek’s Robins held on for a close finish against Dorothy’s Magpies from Izzys Bar who intimated at highway robbery when their struggling pair of Stewart and Jane slumped to a zero result while 2 pairs for the Robins won 2 games each. After 3 successive wins, I took my Falcons team to Izzys Bar to do battle against Sue’s bottom of the league Peacocks team and after being 3 all we missed out in a close finish, but with no thanks to Gill and myself who after great success last week slumped to win nothing while for the Peacocks, 2 pairs scored 2 wins each. Finally, out at the Ebony and Ivory, Keith’s Merlins had the biggest score of the week with a 7-2 win against Val’s Voles from Bar Virgo who had only 2 pairs with 1 win each while for the Merlins with Keith in absentia Pam and Barbara triumphed with their top score of 3 wins.

180s: Terry Hagenaars x 4, Graham Dunning, Amanda Skinner (Rendezvous), Jim Cheevers (PB´s Pirates), George Caine (Misfits), Mark Farmer, Jim Macey-Lillie (Madigans), Derek Kingsbury, John Eyre (Meerkats), Mike Snow (Breakaways), Mark Todd (Gogarty´s), 171s: Tony Beverley (Breeze Bar), Graham Todd (Meerkats), Highest game shot: Eddie Bendelow (Hub Meerkats) 157 (T20,T19,D20), Best single: Mark Farmer (Madigans) 15 darts What a difference a week makes. Some indifferent scoring and finishing 7 days ago by the league leaders was totally eclipsed this week by some high scoring and accurate finishing from the arrowmen of Gogarty´s. With the exception of James Brown in his singles, the deadly finishing from the Gophers ensured a second week on top. The title contenders opened up with a convincing team leg via Mark Todd

95, Ali O´Keef 123 and Todd the elder 125 and D20. Paul Easton D12 increased the home side´s advantage in the first triple, followed by a maximum from Mark Todd in the second. Unfortunately the 180 didn’t help the cause as Kenny Wilkinson, Rod showman Buller and Joe Hawkins powered their way to the finish, Hawkins nailing D8 to reduce the deficit. The pairs were split 2-1 giving Gogarty´s a 4-2 half time advantage. Disappointingly it was to be the Hunks final point. Jake Hawkins with throw, faced the formidable task of taking on James Brown in the first single and should have beaten the in-form Gopher. The young Hunk opened up with 120,100 and 85 which put real pressure on Brown. Hawkins however, couldn’t maintain the standard and allowed his opponent to commit the burglary of the week for the first single. Easton showboated his 40 out with a fine D1,D19 to ensure shared match points. O´Keef 140,100 and S12,D20 made sure of both points in the next, the league leaders now looking for maximum remaining legs. Hunk Steph Simpson came closest to denying Gogarty´s the privilege, leaving a shot out, only for Chris O´Brien to use just one arrow for the bull. Kevin Procktor wrapped up the 12th leg and 10th for his side with a useful 133,98 and D5. Identical wins from the top two sides leaves the table in exactly the same position as last week. Talking to Lee Squires (Rendezvous) about the championship tussle, he opined the outcome will be determined on May 2nd when the Bulls entertain Gogarty´s. I tend to agree with him however, both teams face banana skin games before that date. Nevertheless judging by both sides statistics he is probably right with leg difference deciding the result. Former champions and last year´s runners up Rendezvous Bulls put aside last week´s tribulations and consequences of the previous week´s draw, to overcome a depleted Breeze Bar. The flying Dutchman Terry Hagenaars was back in the side to offset Trevor Hartley´s absence, in this week´s encounter. Hagenaars promptly threw a 180, his fourth of the season, just to show how much he is missed. Boris Ostrowski ensured the draw, Graham Dunning gaining the all important seventh leg for his side and two points to boot. Captain Amanda Skinner, surprisingly as it is rare, lost her second singles in a week, checking out on a mis-informed D15 instead of D10. Gracious in defeat the amiable captain highlighted the necessity of diligence from both sides when chalking/scoring etc. The Meerkats returned to Madigans, the scene of many of the Kats past successes, to a warm welcome from captain Diane Voyce and team. A D4 from Mark Taylor showed the home side´s intent, however their lead was short lived as Graham Todd slotted home D9 to level. Leah Chesworth

regained the lead with a D10 and continues to improve at a rapid rate. Unpredictably all three pairs went to the visitors via John Eyre S2,D4, Alex Nikolov D6,D4 and Derek Kingsbury D18 after a fine 117 from Todd to leave the required double. Madigans took just the two singles from 6 courtesy of Neil Oliver D18 taking Nikolov´s scalp and a subdued Des Field on D18, although Field hit 2x100 in his single it was a far cry from his customary average of around 5 tons. The Kats young guns figured well once again, Alan Ostrowski scoring a ton and D2, Tomas Piwczyk 100,125 and D8, both showing signs of becoming good players along with Danas Bobinas. The Kats are now really international featuring Poles, Lithuanians, Bulgarians, Rumanians and even one or two Englishmen in the Euronics Dart League. Talking of Euronics, Debbie Mackleston´s Mixtures are really threatening a victory, this week´s 5 legs is their second highest total to date. Hyenas got off to a flyer, winning the first two despite a 140 from Graham Cox and a ton from Marge Simpson. Mixture Dave Wright D8 pulled one back, only for Andy Brooker to make it 3-1. The second double featured the Cox´s both trying to outscore each other, Graham won the day with a ton but Lorraine secured D7 for the leg. Keith Lee made it 2-4 at half time. Ms. Mackleston couldn’t repeat her victory of last season over Joe Miller, but then Cheryl Sleath got the better of Richie Weaver 140, with an excellent D18, followed by Dave Wright 100,80,80,81,D8 to beat the consistent Brooker. At 5-4 Graham Cox faced Simon Williams hoping to level and having the armoury to do so. It didn’t happen Williams getting to the double first going out on D8. Marge Simpson figured next and scored a hefty 132, but it wasn’t enough as Lee finished off 61 via S3,S18,D20 for both points. Great darts in the final leg from Geoff Harvey 2x100 and Lorraine Cox enabled the Mixtures to improve their leg tally to a creditable 5. Breakaways now unbeaten in their last three matches just look slight favourites for the League Plate, but with Breeze Bar and PB´s having a game in hand, who knows? Breakaways have a comfortable leg advantage at present which may well be the difference between the three teams at the conclusion of the league. Sunworld K.O. Cup semi-finals next week, Gogarty´s v. Meerkats at the Rendezvous and the Bulls v. Hyenas at Gogarty´s. Go and see some great darts or arrange a friendly for those not competing.

We need another win, don't we? The Claymores were at home to Mazarron Miners, and the Miners came up to the surface with a convincing win, the Claymores winning on just one rink and drawing on one. The final result - EI 3 points to Mazarron's 11, shot difference 98 - 106. Not the best of days for the Emerald Isle, but we fight on. On Monday, 28th February the Moonrakers played host to Monte Mar Norvilleros on a very windy morning which gave way to a good, sunny day. It was also a good day for the Moonrakers who won on four rinks to two. However, the shot difference went to Monte Mar by just one shot - 107-108, resulting in 6 points to EI's 8. Also on 25th, EI Titans made the short trip to play Greenlands Maples, hoping to keep their place at the top end of the League but coming away disappointed, having won on just two rinks. The best win was Chris Ayling, Glenda Odell and Ron White 23-13. Final result - EI - 89 shots, Greenlands 113, 4 points to 10. Can't blame this one on Brian's knees! Bill Allen.

EL RANCHO BOWLS CLUB Monday morning found The Pintos playing host to La Siesta Sputniks, on a glorious day with a wind of variable strength. The rinks were shared at 3 each, whilst The Pintos took the total shots by a reasonable margin. Meanwhile The Broncos were being entertained by La Marina Pathfinders, difficult opponent at any time. The Pathfinder took full advantage of the home mat and took 5 rinks and the total shots. Tuesday afternoon found our Fed 4s team at Monte Mar on a lovely sunny day; we battled to come to terms with the heavy Monte Mar carpet and with all 3 of their rinks going well ahead early on. Alex Morrice's rink came back well before going down on the final few ends. . A big, well done goes out to Don Wheatley and his rink for a battling performance coming back at the death to snatch a very important 17-14 win and get a valuable 2pts. Final score was Monte Mar 64 shots and 6pts to El Rancho 38 shots and 2pts. On Friday The Raiders had a Bye. Meanwhile The Mustangs were away to Monte Mar Matadors, always a difficult opponent at Monte Mar. The Mustangs played well, but were beaten on the day by 4 rinks to 1, with the other drawn. Jim Jarvie, Steve Bowl and Don Wheatley 19-19. Enid Chapman, Drew Gerrard and Bill Chapman 13-27. Jane Hamill, Richard Needham and Stew Hamill 10-31. Ros Holmes, Merv Armstrong and Jim Rainbow 23-9.

SABA WINTER TRIPLES

SAN MIGUEL BOWLS CLUB

HORADADA BOWLS REPORT

28 JANUARY - WEEK 10 ENTERPRISE LEAGUE

By Janet Thomas

I make no apologies for starting with today's Devision B game, Horadada Royals v San Miguel Cougars. This away game brought a huge smile to my face when I read the result. Competing against any team from San Miguel means that you have to be at your best if you hope to gain any points and....... gain more points is exactly what the Royals did. Winning on 5 rinks, gaining 12 points and a healthy shot difference, 108 -79, ensured that the Royals stay at the top of the league table.Well done to all players, and don't let us forget the selectors who appear to be getting it right! Winning rinks: Rose Guppy, Ann Hartley and John Hurlock 17 - 14; Yvonne Hurlock, John Bailey and Alan Pugh 16 - 12; Maureen Semper, Jim Kerr and Barry Evans 16 - 13; Kath Reid, Tony Burchall and Giuseppe Galelli 31 - 6; John Wilson, Terry Huchnall and Mick Blunt 14 - 12. Our Fed 4 team was also matched against San Miguel this week and they too came away with an excellent victory. Winning on all rinks gave us an excellent 8 points to 0 win. Well done to: Fred Semper, Bill Stanaway, John Wilson and Barry Evans 18 - 14; Rose Guppy, Roy Thompson, John Bailey and Alan Pugh 17 - 11; Pauline Murphy, Roy Collins, Terry Hucknall and Giuseppe Galelli 18 - 7. Wish I could have been with you, my favourite green to paly on! Our Falcons team matched against San Luis Klingons was not as successful as our other teams this week.The weather and the company was great, unfortunatley the result was not. For some reason, most of the rinks had difficulty finding their form and the captain could not explain why. Another win for the rink skipped by Giuseppe which included Ian Hamlett and Kath Reid. No details received from the Condors this week. On the social side, a great deal of work/planning has taken place lately and, on behalf of all the members, I thank all those who have contributed. Check the Office notice board for details of: Fun Bike Ride on 9th Feb; Ladies lunch on Feb 19th at Diamontes Restaurant in support of MABS.

SABA Pulsars played away to La Siesta Apollo’s After all the wind we have had to bowl in it was nice to bowl in the sunshine again with San Miguel winning 10 points to 4. Total shots for 115 Shots against 79. Comets played at home to top of the League Country Bowls Supernovas we won on 3 rinks, and lost on the other 3. However, with a shot difference in our favour of 113-105 we won 8-6, which is a good result against such a strong team.

Total shots for 129 Shots against 76 .The two teams who lost only lost on the last end. Well-done team.

The Harriers came out on top with 6 points to 2. Results being rinks skipped by Dominic Mills 21 - 8, Stuart Denholm 30 - 9, and Noel Verity 12 - 14. Well done to the Harriers, hopefully we are now moving in the right direction SOUTHERN LEAGUE Jaguars played away to Country Bowls Total points for 8 against 6. Cougars played top of the league Horadada Royals Total shots for 79 Against 108 Total points for 2 against 12. The annual internal North v South match took place on Sat 26th. Teams representing both sides of the great divide battled for the Sam Russell/Russell Marks trophy. The North team of 7 rinks playing in white were Captained of Dave McEwan. Russell Marks captained the South team of 7 rinks playing in red. To say this game was competitive would be an understatement, as Sammy would have "Lets get some blood on the grass". Internal comps seem to bring out the best in bowlers under pressure and this year proved no different. All with the result being in the balance till the last game finished enjoyed a fun day. The South just sneaked over the line to retain the trophy till next year. Top rink for the North was Val and Chris for the South all 8 were presented with bottles of wine. Both teams should be congratulated for their support. I am sure the North will be gunning for south next year San Miguel Bowls Club is sponsored by Iberian Funeral Plans.

HORADADA HANG ON TO PICK UP THREE POINTS UD HORADADA...........1 UD ALTEA....................0 Following the loss of their manager earlier in the week UD Altea could only just about put a team together. They had five missing through suspension and were only able to put three on the bench, one of whom, Jorge was doubling as an outfield player and sub keeper. You might have been excused for thinking that Horadada could probably go out and bag a hatful.Unfortunately it was anything but as the Reds had to hang on at the end under unrelenting Altea pressure to the very final whistle. Horadada themselves were without club captain Campillo who was suspended and Robles out for 3 weeks through injury and although the trio of Rojo, Del Bano and Eloy coped well for most of the game the influence and organisation of Campillo was clearly missing. With recent signing Salinas making his first start the home side looked lively from the outset and it was Salinas himself who went close in the opening minutes. Unfortunately a clash with Altea keeper Charly put paid to any long term plans the new boy had as he was forced to leave the field through injury moments later. Samu was the replacement and although he isn’t everybody’s favourite, he did put in a solid performance. He was certainly lively around the box and it was his pacey run down the right flank followed by an excellent cross that saw Horadada go in front on the half hour. Although the ball evaded Vardan running through the middle Jose Maria was on hand at the far post to not it in to the Altea goal. We might have thought that more goals were to come and that Horadada might well overturn the one goal disadvantage that they have to top team Almoradi, who also won at the weekend, but despit a multitude of chances there was little else to cheer and as the game wore on and the Reds became ever more frustrated with their own disappointing performance it was Altea that were gradually getting themselves into the game with Romero and Ivan both going close. Horadada were reduced to ten men in added time when Luis received a harsh red following his centrefield challenge on Joway and then perhaps their best opportunity of the match following Vardan’s challenge on Romero on the edge of the box. Fortunately Ivan’s free kick sailed high and wide. Three points but they will have to do better against Hercules next week.

STAY AWAY FANS MISS THADER’S BEST CD THADER...............4 CD CONTESTANO.....1 Whether it was due to the cold wind or lack of results it was a very poor attendance 50% of which included the ex pat support. For the opening minutes it was all Thader who were in front after 10 mins with a Juan goal. This was followed by a Hector shot just going wide. The opening period of this game was all Thader. When the visitors did come alive they got more into the game but still didn't look like a team that far above Thader. Half an hour and slack marking from the Thader defence allowed too much room to Octavia who pulled the visitors level. Moments later it was only a good save from Jose that kept the home side from going ahead. Although the half time reflects the game Thader have made the most opportunities and should probably be ahead. The second half began with an early Thader free kick in a good place but, as usual it’s an Eddie Waring ‘up and under’ and their football has deteriorated with both centre backs playing wasteful free kicks. Then a fortuitous cross saw the visitors defender head past his own keeper with Jose stranded. Not the best way to go ahead but Thader need all the help they can get. Then came the weakest of penalties which saw Eric dismissed for a second yellow. A bit unfortunate for me. This was converted and the home side have three. Within 2 mins a blistering low shot from Nino and Thader are on cloud nine at 4-1.The ten men of Contestano gave their all but were never going to get back into this game. All fairness to Thader they really threw themselves into this fixture and they came away with a result. They must now build on this and drag themselves up by their socks if they are to climb out of that bottom group. They still have a way to go if they are to pull themselves to safety Next week a ‘six pointer’ away up the AP7 against Villena CF who are in the same situation as Thader. They really must keep the momentum going on the back of two very good and somewhat unexpected back to back wins.

CF MIL PALMERAS WEEKLY ROUNDUP 27TH JANUARY 2013 CF Mil Palmeras Pre Bens (2006) 5 v 1 Rojales Sponsored By Fuego La Fuente A steady start saw the youngest Toros grow in confidence through out the frist half. With Dylan in goal, Lacey in defense and Kevin in the center stopping Rojales in their tracks Josh, Elliot and Thomas could push on and force Rojales back .The more chances we got the taller each player seem be until Kevin found enough space to shot and score .Some hard work and drive from Elliot and Jack on the left saw Kevin grab his second goal in two mins .Callum charged and tackled hard to see the first half out 2-0 . Second half saw some of the best football from this young side to date with players looking for passes to each other to create chance after chance .Rojales hit back first to make it 2-1 only for Kevin to pick out Thomas who shot and scored within 2 mins to extend the Toros lead . Josh in goal managed to find Thomas ,Dylan or Kevin time and again and with Lacey like a rock at the back the Toros were well on top of this match .Thomas picked up a loose ball to score his second goal .Jack and Callum worked hard in midfield causing Rojales to bunch up giving Kevin space to again find Dylan who forced the ball through the Rojales defense for Thomas to get his hat trick to finish the match 5-1 . Outstanding Team performance see's the Toros work hard together to deserve the result Man of the Match Josh for hard work in midfield and goal. Well Done Toros. Rojales B 1 v 1 CF Mil Palmeras Benjamines Sponsored By Sunshine FM 102.8 Another blustery early start for the league leading Toros saw them face a determined Rojales side .The first half Bailey Tomlinson , Paolo Webb and Niomi

Sheffield had to keep their wits about them dealing with Rojales long balls and even when rojales did get goal side the Toros defense blocked and tackled to protect Diego Sheffield in goal .The Toros midfield caused problems for the opposition but just couldn't find the back of the net making it 0-0 at half time. Second half was much the same for the first 10 mins and then Rojales made the most of some bad marking to grab the first goal of the match. Mil Palmeras Toros hit straight back with Luke Naylor finding Ben Naylor out wide who picked out Kevin Ruiz out on the edge of the box who flicked the ball on for Bailey to shot and score from the edge of the box . With Luca Webb getting more confident on the right Mil Palmeras really turned the pressure up but again the goals just wouldn't come . True to form the only way the opposition could deal with the charging Toros was to kick them not the ball giving away numerous freekick but again the Toros just couldn't make the most of their chances finishing the Match 1-1 . A frustrating match but again another week undefeated and still top of the table. This from a group of players who work so hard for each other to be the TEAM they are . Player Of The Match Niomi Sheffield for hard work and tough tackling. Well Done Toros. Sponsored by Talleres J Martinez Ford garage CF Mil Palmeras Alevines 6-3 Rojales Wonderful exhibition of football from a team that seems to have finally found its feet. I think all six goals would have made goal of the month on match if the day such was the quality of the football. And unlike the previous two wins we looked a lot steadier at the back with some confident goalkeeping from Angel and good

covering from Melody, Cai and Cristian with a ship steadying performance just in front from Luke. But it was in the final third where the toros oozed class with one twos and sublime through balls creating a host of chances.Lewis long opened the scoring then came a one two with a neat lob finish from Agustin Ramirez Half time 2-0 Second half and with good work from Oliver Chapman and Neve Bradley we could of had more, but it eventually came courtesy of a fine finish from Oliver Godden. Rojales finally got in the game grabbing a

goal for 3-1 but toros straight from the centre regained the three goal advantage with a Lewis long range effort which was spilt by the goalkeeper. And in an instant it was 5-1 when captain Emily Kelly beat no less than 4 players and coolly slotted home. Rojales got one back shortly after but again Mil Palmeras responded with a great move and finish by Oliver Godden. Rojales did get another consolation but by then the points were in the bag. Well done all. Man of the match Emily Kelly covered every inch of the park.

BATTLE OF THE PALMS ENDS ALL SQUARE LAS PALMAS................ 0 ELCHE........................... 0 BY JOHN MCGREGOR

Despite much huffing and puffing neither side blew the other’s palm trees over in the

Canary Islands. The home side, looking like canaries in bright yellow were unable to peck open the meanest defence in the league, which has only conceded an amazing 12 goals in 24 matches. In return Elche’s attack was unable to break down the home side, despite a disallowed goal and many thwarted attempts. Las Palmas are having a good season and are contesting the play-off places,

having only lost seven in twenty-four matches this season, and traditionally Elche do not do well against them. A goodly crowd of 13,839 swathed in yellow with an occasional flash of green watched the match in brilliant sunshine.For the Illicitanos sound full back Damian Suarez is still out, but able deputy Flano again deputised. Club captain Generelo retained his place, keeping out my preferred midfield maestro Mantecon, and again up front new local boy Aaron played, as big striker Berry Powel is out injured. The first half belonged to Las Palmas with an early header from a corner going well over, then Herrera in the Elche goal smothering a shot by Momo from an acute angle. From a suspiciously-looking position from a free kick Chrisantus volleyed way over the bar. For Elche one of Albacar’s specialist inswinging free kicks was saved at the foot of the post by goalkeeper Barbosa. The lively Thievy wide on the home sides right was finding space and from an acute angle the Frenchman’s low shot went six feet wide. If the first half was more Las Palmas, the Illicitanos came out strongly for the second, and began to put pressure on Barbosa and his defence. Another inswinging corner, this time from substitute Palanca bounced off the angle of post and bar, Elche now looking the more likely side to score, especially when Mantecon replaced Aaron. With 15 minutes left from just inside the Las Palmas half wide on the left Albacar chipped it into the middle, and in one fantastic movement Coro brought it under control and volleyed it over Barbosa. Offside, said the ref, but the replay showed Coro was just onside when the ball was played: pity, a goal had been looking on the way. In one classic. Stupidly Palanca got himself sent off for a second yellow as he appeared to elbow Pignol in the face as they both sat on

Photos courtesy of www.udlaspalmas.es the ground. It’s a good job the winger is a reserve this season, his ban is not really critical. Worrying bookings, however for Etxeita, Rivera and Aaron were sustained, equalled by three for the home side. An Elche claim for a penalty as Barbosa appeared to trip Coro was turned down, but Elche finished much the stronger, honours even at the end of an exciting, but goalless game. Elche go marching on with the point that keeps them top by at least ten points from Almeria who play late on Sunday evening at RM Castilla. The worry from last

year that when the suspensions and injuries ‘kick’ in, there isn’t sufficient depth in adequate reserves to cover looks to be unnecessary, Flano, Generelo, and Aaron are covering the key positions well enough to keep the results coming in satisfactorily. The great news is that Angel, the popular and prolific striker is back, that bodes well for the rest of the season. Next Saturday sees the arrival in the Matinez Valero of old foes Cordoba who could go sixth if they win on Sunday. Game on! Mucho Elche!
