tion on suspected stolen babies, children that are alleged to have died at, or within 24 hours of, their birth, which many relatives now suspect were the subject of illegal adoption. One case that is currently making the headlines is that of the ilicitana María José Picó who has been immersed in a quest to find her twin sister for about two years. “It is a commitment that will never end” she says "despite the many obstacles put in front of her, until she has the answers that she needs.” The story of this search goes back to March 28, 1962, when the mother of Maria Jose, Francisca Robles, went into labour. She was taken to Alicante General Hospital, says Maria Jose. "A nurse told my father and grandmother that two girls had been born and everything had gone very well, however neither was allowed to see the children.” The mother was transferred to a room where she was left alone for three days, apart from visiting hours. The children were brought in from time to time but for the most part they were kept in another room. Sometime later a nurse came into the room and told the mother that one of the children was ill. “At about 4 am on the following morning the nurse came back again

Monday, 8th April, 2013 and told my mother that my sister had died,” said Maria Jose. The next day, the hospital priest went to visit the mother of Maria Jose to ask about the girls, and was furious when he was told that one had died. "He was asked to baptize her before burial, but my sister did not even have a name," laments Maria From then on everything was rushed. Hospital staff told the father to go buy a small coffin to bury the dead twin and bring it back to the hospital. The hospital then sealed the coffin and sent the father to the Alicante cemetery where they said that staff were urgently waiting to bury the child. The family, who all lived in Elche, did not understand why the girl had to be buried in Alicante, but were told that it was mandatory that the body went to the cemetery closest to the hospital. The father, who is now 82 years old, still remembers the area where he deposited the coffin, and is still wondering why he was not allowed to open it to confirm that it held the body of his daughter. Interestingly, the death certificate does not include the name of the doctor who confirmed the child’s passing. As such the family has always had it’s doubts. María followed a myriad of bureaucratic red tape as she took the case to la Fiscalía de Menores (the Juvenile Prosecutor). This eventually culminated with the burial plot being formally identified and the exhumation on the remains of a baby girl taking place. But just last week, fourteen months after the exhumation, María was hit with the bombshell that the DNA of her parents does not match that of the remains found in the grave and as such she is now carefully considering her next

step. She said that she is now trying to find out if her sister is alive and living under another name and with another family. Currently, la Fiscalía de Menores is responsible for investigating fourteen cases of missing children in the province, although more are expected to arrive in the coming weeks. The prosecutor currently awaits DNA results from the National Toxicology Institute in seven of the cases. As a result of the investigations the Association of Victims of stolen children and illegal adoptions in Alicante (AVA) was formed. The organization provides support to those families who find themselves in a similar situation. They provide information and assistance to those like Maria who have started a crusade to find out if their relatives are still alive. They do this through the courts, through burial records and even through social networks. They also provide advice on how to initiate a complaint or request an exhumation. Currently there are about 80 families in the province seeking clarification on suspected stolen babies. But the AVA also warns that the circumstances surrounding burials and exhumations varied enormously during the period in question, particularly where a child was buried in a coffin within a public grave. Here the task of identifying the remains becomes much more complicated, since there could well be the existence of

several babies within the same small plot, many of whom will have been buried in biodegradable coffins which could now prevent the recognition of specific DNA traces. Between 1950 and 1980 estimates put the total number of children that are thought to have been illegally adopted at around 300,000. This was done through a network of Catholic Church-run children's homes and private hospitals which would take newborn infants, typically from

young, impoverished single mothers, who were told that their baby had died. The women were usually known to have supported the Republican cause during the Spanish Civil war. It was seen at the time as an effective way of inflicting a lasting punishment on those who had backed the wrong side. The children were then placed in the care of families who had supported the new regime, at the same time preventing the appearance of a new generation of "reds."

O MBUDSMAN REPEATS HIS TORREVIEJA CRITICISM Casa de Los Balcones

For the second consecutive year, the office of the Ombudsman has criticised Torrevieja city council for failing to protect a number of historic buildings listed under the “General Plan”. In the latest report, it is stated that the council has once again failed to take any steps in protecting buildings such as the Nuevo Cinema, the tower and Casa de los Balcones or the Pensión del Parejo, parts of which are now falling into ruin. The 2012 report, which has just been released this week, refers to the previous report of 2011, in which remedial work was ordered, but there has been “no action”. The record also states that, “the passivity of some municipalities are surprising”, to

which Torrevieja was cited, which has now formed the basis of the complaint put forward by the Ombudsman in the report of 2012. The Urban Planning department in Torrevieja say that they are unaware of the complaint, with Francisco Moreno saying, “We are strictly compliant with the Ombudsman's office”, before commenting that a formal notice had been issued to the owners of one of buildings. The Neuvo Cinema de Torrevieja closed in 1997. Rehabilitation work began but the building was eventually torn down under the instruction of the former mayor in 2001, later to be replaced by the Municipal Theatre. José Manuel Dolón, of the Los Verdes green party in Torrevieja, says that, “The theatre was built under the guise of reform but the result is unrelated to the past or history Torrevieja. Making comparison to the Colosseum in Rome, these buildings hold a key to the history of the city and preservation is paramount, although, “the mayor laments environmentalists”. However, an anti-environmental policy would not necessarily explain the reasons why the Planning Department of

Torrevieja has ignored plans to rehabilitate the Los Balcones site. Danish architect Henriette Baden Lander, an expert in historic site recovery, submitted a proposal to convert the site into a wine museum, restaurant, or even a school, whilst still maintaining the original characteristics, restoring the building for the practical benefit of residents and tourists alike. But, despite numerous submissions and meetings, the Torrevieja town hall has shown no interest in the project. The town hall claim that the matter is a private one and in the hands of the owner of the building, who had originally intended to build a hotel, preserving the facade of the building, but this would become almost impossible, especially now that a modern, luxury hotel has been built across the road. The Los Verdes conclude that they agree the matter is a private

one and that the town hall does not have the power to decide on the regeneration of the site, but they do have a legal obligation to enforce the law that insists on the property being preserved, to which at least one proposal ought to have been supported, thus avoiding the literal dereliction.

ALICANTE NEWS

Following a large amount of congestion during the Easter period, with some drivers trapped in their vehicles for up to two hours, calls are now being made to ban cars from accessing the Santa Bárbara Castle in Alicante, replacing access by means of a “parkand-ride” type minibus, allowing cars to park further away from the historic landmark, and for visitors to then be transported along the narrow paths without struggling to find a parking spot at the top of the 166 metre high Mount Benacantil, where the 9th Century fortress stands overlooking the city of Alicante. The monitoring and management company responsible for the Segura basin has sent a communication to the Government delegations of Murcia, Alicante, Albacete and Almería, warning that “due to the large amount of accumulated contributions during the month of March in the headwaters of the rivers Segura and Mundo, they are producing some extraordinary circulating flows in those rivers”. They are therefore advising caution when near the rivers, discouraging sports and leisure activities in the basins, and advising the public to be diligent of the risk of fast and strong flowing currents throughout the inland water network. Currently, the reservoirs of the Segura basin are at 72% capacity, with Fuensanta at 100% capacity, Cenajo at 90%, Talave at 91% and Camarillas at 89%.

OVER 20% OF DOGS NOT ‘CHIPPED’

Police say that over 20% of dogs in both Orihuela and on the Costa to not have the "chip" identification, which has been mandatory in Spain for many years. The figures have been released following a campaign initiated by the Department of Health which began on February 14. The operation was carried out by the local police but on this occasion it was undertaken purely as an information gathering process, an awareness initiative with no sanctions being carried out, according to Councilor Luis Galiano (PSOE). "Local Police Agents have not punished the owners, but we have reported the mandatory animal identification to the authorities, together with the consequences of not chipping their animals to the owners, "he said last week. In a statement the councilor said that the campaign has found that 20% of the animals do not meet the law and did not have the" chip" fitted. He went on to say that the police have found that 6% of the dogs are part of the group considered to be potentially dangerous animals and their owners do not have the requisite license. "So, he has now begun to process requirements to ensure that owners correct any deficiencies that have been found. Failure to do so will result in the imposition of a fine.

BUSINESS NEWS French owned chain of electric and home appliance stores, Darty, will shut their doors for the last time in June across Spain, with the loss of 650 jobs from the closure of their 43 stores, at a cost of 30 million euro. This decision is part of its strategic plan to eliminate losses in noncore markets, including Spain, and focus on France, Belgium and the Netherlands, according to the company, who said in a statement, “To significantly improve our position in Spain would be a long and potentially costly trip with no guarantee of success”. In Spain, Darty expects to reach a turnover of 120 million euro at year-end 2012 to 2013, which ends April the 30th, with an operating loss of 16 million euro. Josep Botet, one of the three founders of Barcelona born supermarket chain Caprabo, died this week, at the age of 99. Founded in 1959 by Pere Carbó, Jaume Prat and Josep Botet, the name was formed by the first letters of their surnames, the store is famed for braking the mould of grocery shops in Spain, until the Eroski group took over full ownership in 2012.

‘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.

SOME PEOPLE ARE GAY - GET OVER IT! Gay Pride is always a magnificent spectacle and a huge party in Gran Canaria, and preparations are well underway for this year’s spectacular. After all, Maspalomas Pride is one of the biggest events of its kind in the world. The very first Gay Pride in Maspalomas took place in May 2001, and we have seen the festival become more impressive each year. Thousands of gay men and women, as well as transgendered and bisexual people (LGBT), from across the world visit the island to have fun in the sun, as well as to enjoy the shows and street parade of the big weekend. This year’s Pride will be a time of parties, cultural events and shows. Those tourists and residents who are new to the island, as well as readers of ‘Twitters from the Atlantic’ may well be asking themselves, “What is all the fuss about?” The first ever Gay Pride parade took place in 1969 and is known as the March on Stonewall. The event started as a protest against discrimination and violence against gay men and women in New York City. Although there have been many advances in equality since those dark days, it is time once again to ask ourselves if anything has really changed, or is it mostly superficial? Each day we still read and hear of gay men and women who are per-

secuted for their sexuality. In some countries, gay men and women are still strung up and publicly hanged from cranes as a warning to others. In other countries, the mind games that are played are subtler, but still have the same devastating effect upon men and women who have committed no crime, other than a desire to love and be loved. History has taught us that during times of financial hardship, poverty and recession, it is always the minority groups who are oppressed. We saw this at its most horrific in Nazi Germany with the persecution of Jews, gypsies, disabled children and gay men and women, where a trip to the gas chambers was seen as “the final solution”. Have we really learned anything? We are already seeing some repetition of hate crimes towards gay men and women, and others who are not considered as “normal” by the wider population. A recent appalling article in the Daily Mail, known by many as the Daily Fascist or the Daily Hate, written by the columnist Littlejohn, wrote an obnoxious article about a primary school teacher undergoing a sex change operation that was widely reported as having led to her recent suicide. We know that verbal “gay bashing” is the order of the day for some unholy alliances of churches with doctrines as far apart as Catholics, Muslims and the Mormons. Right wing political parties continue to spread their message of hate in the UK, Spain, France and the US, and polls reveal that these parties are gaining in popularity as a result. Recent debates about gay marriage in the UK, US, Spain and France have revealed many long held and carefully hidden prejudices that have shaken many gay men and women out of their relative complacency of hard won battles over the generations. The gay marriage issue has made many gay men and women realise that their ‘acceptance’ is only surface deep, and the hatred and disgust shown by many who deny gay men and women the right to love members of their own gender leave us in no doubt that gay equality does not and has never truly existed. Maybe we have been lulled into a kind of security by crumbs thrown from the political table in the guise of civil partnerships and laws attempting to protect. However, although there have undoubtedly

7

been many improvements in the lives of gay men and women, the attitudes of many remain unchanged, and hypocrisy still continues as recent debates surrounding gay marriage reveal. Today, Gay Pride events have become an annual ritual all over the world and have grown to include thousands of gay and gay-friendly participants, families and friends of gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people, as well as hundreds of spectators. We look forward to and will enjoy Maspalomas Gay Pride as usual; let us all enjoy a well-earned party of celebration. However, we should never forget the hard won fight of those who have gone before us. Let us remain on our guard, and continue to be aware of the on going challenges.

TORREVIEJA NEWS Five people with alleged links to street vendors in Torrevieja were arrested this week, on suspicion of being involved in a violent clash with the police. Local police were carrying out a routine patrol when one officer is reported to have received minor injuries in a clash with one of the so called “looky looky� men. A number of local police and Guardia civil patrols quickly assisted, resulting in the arrests. Torrevieja town hall is in the process of passing laws that will prosecute people who purchase goods from these street sellers, criminalising the potential victim of a crime, rather than the perpetrators. A woman suffered facial burns after a domestic appliance explosion in the kitchen of her home this week. The incident occurred on the first floor home on calle San Pascual, where local police officers attended immediately, before fire crews then controlled the spread of a fire. The councillor for young people in Torrevieja has launched the Spring Youth Program for the residents of the city between the ages of 14 and 35, which includes a variety of conferences, exhibitions, lectures and courses, as well as hiking activities and a blood donation drive, with full details available on the website www.ciaj.es. The body of a man, believed to be 52 years of age, was found floating in the sea off the coast of Torrevieja this week, when the 112 emergency centre received a number of calls from passers by reporting the sighting in the natural pools by the promenade. Emergency teams recovered the body which was taken to the forensic science lab for an autopsy to be carried out, pending an investigation into the death.

HOW TO AVOID A PARKING FINE IN TORREVIEJA You may recall a number of articles last year, in which countless drivers were confused over the adoption of new parking bays on the main streets through Torrevieja, confusion which still continues today with residents unsure of the law and the police unable to monitor some of the time restrictive spaces, but confusion may well have also spread into the peripheries of the city, if reports over a recent incident are anything to go by. It was revealed this week that on the afternoon of the 27th of March, officers from the Local Police of Torrevieja observed a vehicle parked in a loading and unloading bay on Calle San Isidro in La Mata, where it remained for at least 3 hours during the evening, and subsequently issued a notice of a fine of 90 euro for parking in an unauthorized spot, although this can be reduced to 45 euro in the event of prompt payment. Perhaps not a normal news worthy story until it later transpired that the vehicle belonged to the Torrevieja councillor for public safety, and responsible for the police, Eduardo Gil Rebollo. Neighbours had already noted that the vehicle carried an official sticker in the windscreen stating that it was a car belonging to an official, but it was also pointed out that the authority does not allow anybody to break the law, and the vehicle was still parked illegally, as per the signs that were clear for all to see. Apart from being named in a number of allegations relating to the awards of contracts and the mobile phone scandal that rocked Torrevieja, for which Gil Rebollo was one of the few left unpunished, he has recently hit the headlines for falling out with the police over new working shift patterns and pay. Unions representing the police are also now raising questions as to why the parking restriction signs on the street in question have been changed, some two days after the offence was recorded, which now allows him to park in the bay when he is at home, and effectively changes the law to suit him and his personal parking requirements. It is also believed that the fine has not been paid. This is yet another incident that fuels the fire in calls for the councillor to resign from his post, but, if history tells us anything, it is unlikely that this latest incident will damage him or his position, but at the detriment to the mayor who still seems unable or unwilling to take action against a councillor who has been in place since the leadership of the former mayor of the city.

PLANS PROPOSED TO PROTECT CHILDREN

The Minister for Health, Social Security and Equality, Ana Mato, has announced a series of changes to the law which the government feel are necessary in the interest of protecting children. Children of couples who have been involved in domestic violence case will also now be classified as “victims”, amending a law passed in 2004, in which acts of violence are considered “as a manifestation of discrimination, the inequality

and power relations of men over women, exerted on these by those who are or have been their spouses or those who are or have been linked to them by similar affective relationships, even without cohabitation”. The standard approach following a case of violence being recorded would now automatically be for the children to remain with the mother, without clarifying visitation rights of the father. Principally, these matters will be discussed and negotiated

through a working group that will assess the implications in changes of 125 measures across 11 laws, including adapting the Unified Register of Child Abuse and the Child and Sexual Exploitation Register. As part of the motion, the legal age of marriage with consent will be increased to 16 from the current age of 14, although the standard age will remain at 18. The age of sexual consent will also increase and will be in line with that of neighbouring

countries, in order to “avoid abuse and fight more effectively against paedophilia” and there will be a clearer defined procedure for dealing with sexual abuse cases within the family, with victims being given priority in foster care as part of the process, with children under three years of age no

longer being dealt with at an institution, but through integration into a family as an emergency case. There are currently 35,000 children who are in care across Spain, with an ever increasing number of families looking to adopt and being forced to look to other countries to do so. By easing the process of adoption it is hoped that more children could be placed directly with permanent adoptive parents at an earlier age, albeit at the discretion of a judge. Young people will also be reclassified and helped with more modern issues that plague them, with “cyberbullying” now being recognised under the Criminal Code, along with eating disorders being given

more consideration, and paediatric care will now be extended to cover young people up to the age of 18, rather than the current age of 14, and access to alcohol will also become more restrictive with a unified age of 18 hoping to deal with problems related to abuse.

INTERFERING MUM My mother has recently sold the family home and moved in with me and my husband. She is a lovely mother, but a nightmare to live with and I’m reaching the end of my tether. She is critical of my husband and tells my kids to behave in a different way to how I taught them giving them confusing signals. How do I politely tell her that she needs to arrange somewhere else to live? Gaynor If this woman thinks its acceptable to invade your home and pick holes in your life, why do you feel the need to be polite at all? Just tell her point blank that she needs to respect you more! Sit down and talk things through with your mum, tell her you’re not happy with her comments and that you’d rather

WISH I WAS YOUNG After being made redundant a few months ago, I’ve been feeling really stressed. I can’t afford to pay my mortgage and my bills are mounting up. I keep wishing that I was just a child again, with no responsibilities. I know it seems pathetic but I can’t handle my problems but I hate the fact that I’m wishing my life away as I feel so scared. Naomi Nobody is going to turn your life around for you

she found somewhere else to live. There really isn’t any other way to say it is there? Personally, I think you’re quite right to be annoyed. The longer you put off this discussion, the harder its going be. Think about your husband and your kids as well as your own sanity! If you’re still in this situation six months from months from now and you’ve not had the courage to speak out, you’ll only have yourself to blame. Naomi, only you can do that. So you've suffered a set back, its not the end of the world is it? I know jobs are few and far between right now but the economy is on the turn and things are starting to look up. Your priorities right now should be to speak to everybody you owe money to, including the mortgage company. Explain that your temporarily unemployed and ask them if they will accept reduced payments. Sinking into depression and longing for the good old days isn't going to help. You're wasting precious time and doing nothing more than bringing yourself down. Try to create some positive for yourself. If you can't find work, consider retraining to give yourself a better chance. Whatever you do, keep pushing yourself forwards and, ultimately, your circumstances will improve as a result.

I’ve been married for 24 years now and I’m worried about our relationship. The kids have left home now and while they were around the house was full of noise and laughter. Now they’ve left, it seems quiet. My husband and I have nothing to talk about, and we sit there in silence when we eat dinner and for the rest of the evening. It’s making me really depressed. Irene Have you thought about making an effort yourself Irene? For over twenty years both you and your husband have had very definitive roles. Getting used to living together as a couple again, with no kids placing demands on you must be difficult. What you need to do is rediscover each other and try to enjoy your newfound freedom and peace! None of that can happen of course unless you can communicate! Its all very well sitting and moaning about your life but that just leads to misery doesn't it? Try to bring the spark back somehow, maybe plan some nights out or even a romantic candlelit dinner at home! Your husband probably sits at that table with you night after night wondering why you never talk to him, just as you do. Nothing will change unless you yourself take the bull by the horns. Hopefully, if you work hard at bringing your relationship back to life, you'll have many happy years ahead!

THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ROYAL AIR FORCES ASSOCIATION (RAFA) On Easter Monday 1st April, the Costa Blanca Branch of the Royal Air Forces Association marked the 70th Anniversary of the Association with a Service of Celebration at the La Siesta Community Church. As one of the longest standing service charities, RAFA has been proud to have helped and continues to help the whole Royal Air Force family, by providing friendship, help and support to current and former members of the RAF and their dependants. The kind of welfare support is wide ranging; everything from providing home visits and respite care breaks, and working closely with the RAF Benevolent Fund in providing financial assistance in times of difficulty. The majority of

this work is funded purely from the generosity of the 65,000 membership worldwide, and the generosity of supporters. In Spain there are three RAFA Branches, the Costa Blanca Branch in the Torrevieja area,

CRAZY LADIES TAP DANCE GROUP

No one is ever too old to enjoy dancing, it’s a wonderful way to keep fit and to socialize with likeminded people. It is also very rewarding to be able to dance for charities and raise money for good causes. The Crazy ladies are a group of mature ladies who just love to dance. Many of them have never danced before they came to Spain but are now enjoying the benefits of learning from various teachers over the last few years. Georgie Anderson, from Los Alcazares, is their leader and choreographer at present and has danced since she was three. Georgie has danced highland, tap, ballet, modern, Irish, flamenco and ballroom. Georgie started competing and winning dance championships at the Highland Games in her home country of Scotland. This continued until her late teens when marriage and children caused an untimely gap in her career, however later in life she was invited to and toured the world dancing with the British Caledonian Airways Band which included television performances. Once British Caledonian disbanded Georgie joined many groups in the south of England where she had moved to because of her

husbands employment. The groups included tap dancing and flamenco, with many visits to flamenco summer schools in London. After moving to Spain Georgie found it difficult to find flamenco classes that suited her age and ability, so returned to tap with a group who at that time were performing in Los Arcos Restaurant (the Sofisikats). When that teacher retired, Georgie moved to the other classes at the old Asturias in Punta prima. From this group she took part in many fund raising concerts, however, the choreographer of that group found it necessary to return to England. The ladies still wanted to continue dancing so they asked Georgie if she would lead. It was at this stage that she started to choreograph some new and more modern routines (having never wanted to teach or choreograph all of her dancing life), but the ladies can be very persuasive and Georgie very pensively started to build some routines. Since then ( and the name was chosen by them!) The Crazy Ladies have increased their repertoire to include some classic tap dance numbers and some more modern numbers to songs by Adele, Paloma Faith, Paulo Nutini etc. In the last 3 years they have performed at many charity functions including the very successful Song and Dance Cabaret at La Serena Hotel. The ladies meet twice weekly at Asturias Pizzeria in Punta Prima ( Weds and Sats ) and are continuing to learn new routines in the hope that they will be invited to perform at more charity events. If you would like the ladies to take part in your event the please contact either Sue on 966 189 513 email peter497@btinternet.com or Georgie on 968 713 356.

North Costa Blanca Branch, to the North of Benidorm and Benalmadena Branch in the South, who continually monitor the needs of ex-RAF members and their families who live in Spain to try and ensure any needs are met. Although one of the lesser known charitable organisations, especially here in Spain, the welfare and social ethos of the Association's past 70 years will continue to be at the forefront of actions and will , hopefully, continue to be so for a long time to come.

THIS W EEK IN SPAIN Winter will once again bring a seasonal increase in unemployment, and Easter was early this year which resulted in the service sector getting a welcome boost, but March 2013 has shown positive results for those seeking work with 4,979 people managing to remove themselves from the job queue and find work. Unemployment figures at the end of March stood at 5,035,243 people, a drop in 0.10%, according to the Ministry of Employment and Social Security. This is the first positive sign of some recovery since March 2008, when 14,456 people found work, but the year later, in 2009, 123,000 people lost their job, with an average of a 30,000 people drop each March since.

or relatives, and 2.6% classed as “others”. Since the launch of the service, the number of daily calls averages at 180, almost 12 of which are immediately classed as “emergencies”, with another large proportion being given free legal advice. However, the 2012 data released by the courts of Spain show a decrease in cases, with a total of 128,543 reports reaching court, a drop of 4.1% of the 134,002 of 2011, a total of 15 cases per day less. One group representing women affected by gender violence is putting the reduction down to the economic climate, as women are discouraged to leave a violent relationship for financial reasons.

Spanish hotels achieved up to 80% occupancy during the height of the Easter season, although the figure was mostly a persistent 70% on average, a figure similar to that of 2012. However, the Costa Blanca only managed an average of 60% occupation, rising to 70% on the important dates, with Benidorm gaining favour above the average, having 85% occupancy during the Easter week, rising to 90% for the key days of the holiday weekend. The Canary island of Fuerteventura proved most popular though, reaching 100% occupancy during the key days, maintaining 87% through the build up.

The Union of Self-Employed and Entrepreneurs, UATAE, has noted that Spain has lost up to 403,109 self employed workers during the “crisis” of the past five years, based on data provided monthly by the Ministry of Employment and Social Security. According to these figures, in February 2008 there were 3,398,863 workers who were classed as self employed, compared to 2,995,754 in late February 2013, a total of 403,109 workers, or 11.86%. This total figure represents a total of 220 people losing their self gained livelihood every single day of the five year period. The figures also reveal that 84.54% of those who lost work were men compared to 15.45% of women, which has meant that if in 2008 women accounted for 32.27% of self-employment in Spain; in February 2013 the figure is now 34.53%. The 016 telephone service, used for the reporting of domestic or gender violence cases, recorded a total of 361,912 calls in the first two months of 2013, according to the Secretary of State for Social Services and Equality, Juan Manuel Moreno. Of these, 75% of calls were made by the person suffering abuse, 22.4% by family members

quakes, the equivalent of being rocked by 2.39 tons of TNT. The largest earthquake had a magnitude of 4.9 on the Richter scale and was felt on neighbouring islands. In the two week period between the 17th and 31st of March, the National Geographic Institute teams recorded 2086 earthquakes in El Hierro, which have caused damage forcing the closure of several. The most rocking day was the 24th of March, with 232 tremors, and 212 the day after, followed by 203 on the 28th. Similarly, the area around Lorca has been suffering a number of earthquakes over the last few months, which this week was also registering up to magnitude 4 on the Richter scale. During the recent collation of information on birds on the Iberian Peninsula, ornithologists have identified 56 new species in the past seven years, bringing the total to 569 species, of which 206 are classed as “oddities”, which is the classification for birds considered vagrant or rare. There has also been a reclassification of a number of birds, separating some old genres, such as the case for the Blue Tit, amongst others, which now has two groups, common and Canary.

A 59 year old man, who was in the process of being evicted for non payment of rent, has died in an apparent suicide in the town of Santesteban, in northern Navarre. According to judicial sources, the man, whose identity has not been revealed, owed just over 4,200 euro in rent for the apartment where he lived with his girlfriend. The district court had decreed the eviction for non-payment could proceed, which would have been effective on the day in which the man died. Sources of the Provincial Police, who has taken over the case, have indicated that they are investigating the death and if it can be related to a process of eviction. Despite summer like conditions on the Costa Blanca, much of Spain has been swamped in bad weather this week, with road closures, bridge collapses and a number of fatalities as a result of the weather conditions. A truck and a passenger car crashed into a river in Ciudad Real after a road bridge over the river collapsed beneath them, killing three people. In a worrying return for residents to the events of 2011, the small Canary island of El Hierro has suffered over 2,000 earth-

Yoghurts manufactured in Spain may now last forever, under new rules implemented this week by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment. Since 2003 the maximum permitted shelf life of a yoghurt was 28 days, but new rules

mean that the date will be replaced by a recommended date of consumption, known as a “best before” date, which the government hopes will go some way to reducing the 7.7 million tons of food that´s wasted each year, which would still be fit for consumption. Miguel Arias Cañete, the Minister who has implemented the change, says that yoghurt will taste different the longer time goes beyond the manufacturing date, but “evolving technologies” mean that the process of manufacturing and food preservation means that the term can easily be extended. The President of a patient´s association in Madrid has demanded that the health ministry withdraw the fee imposed on the renewal of health cards, or a formal complaint will be filed and a claim for legal charges. The 10 euro fee has been put on the patient who needs to renew a card in the event of loss or having had it stolen, which has been described as “barbaric” by Carmen Flores of the Asociación El Defensor del Paciente. The former Minister for Health in the community of Madrid, Manuel Lamela of the Partido Popular, has faced criticism this week, as details of his role as a board member for the company Assignia Infraestructuras were revealed. A former politician working in the private sector may not normally raise questions, but the company he now works for runs the maintenance and management of the building which is the hospital de Aranjuez, as part of a 270 million euro contract that he signed whilst in office in the health department. With a 9 million euro contract for a 30 year period, the phenomenon is fast gaining popularity amongst former public officials, which many are calling the “revolving door” effect, where some politicians have been alleged to have favoured companies they

Despite the financial crisis being blamed for the loss and reduction in any sector of business, female genital aesthetic medicine treatments have increased by 50% compared to previous years, according to data collected by the 700 partner clinics of the Spanish Society of Aesthetic Medicine.

What's W ith the Weight Gain? Many clients that come into the clinic for treatment are concerned that they are putting on weight, even, when in their opinion they do not eat or drink excessively. If you start taking in more calories than usual or cut back on exercise, you wouldn't be surprised if the numbers on the scales crept higher. But what if you're doing everything the same as you always do and your weight still goes up? It's time to delve a little deeper into what might else be going on. Lymphatic System This system is prone to sluggishness and blockage. It is important to keep the lymphatic system healthy as it is a vital part of body immunity and overall health. Since the system is closely allied with the cardiovascular system, approaches to keeping that system healthy are recommended for the lymphatic system, also. The following all play a part in keeping the lymphatic system operating at peak efficiency: proper nutrition, healthy amounts of good-quality drinking water, adequate rest, regular exercise, and stress reduction. If left unchecked, infection can quickly weaken the body's immune response, leading to serious health problems and weight gain. Lack of Sleep. There are two issues at work with sleep and weight gain. The first is intuitive: If you're up late, the odds are greater that you're doing some late-night snacking, which will increase your calorie intake. The other reason involves what's going on bio chemically when you're sleep deprived. Hormones that affect appetite take over, making you hungrier the next morning. These hormones also make you feel not as full after eating.

Stress. When life's demands get too intense, our bodies go into survival mode: Cortisol, the "stress hormone," is secreted, which causes an increase in appetite. And then of course, we may reach for high-calorie comfort foods in times of stress as well. This combination is a perfect breeding ground for weight gain. Antidepressants. An unfortunate side effect from some antidepressants is weight gain, which may occur in up to 25% of people taking them long-term. Talk to your doctor about switching to another drug if you think your antidepressant is causing weight gain. But realise that some people experience weight gain after beginning drug treatment simply because they're feeling better, which leads to a better appetite.

Corticosteroids Anti-inflammatory steroid medications are notorious for causing weight gain. Fluid retention and increased appetite are the main reasons. Although weight gain is common, the severity of this side effect depends on the strength of the dose and length of time on the drug. Some people may also see a redistribution of fat while taking the drug -- to places like the face, back of the neck, or the abdomen. The Pill" Does NOT Cause Weight Gain Contrary to popular belief, combination birth control pills (oestrogen and progestin) do not cause weight gain. In fact, some women on the pill lose weight, primarily from nausea. If you're still concerned about possible weight gain, talk to your doctor. Hypothyroidism. If your thyroid (the butterfly-shaped gland in the front of your neck) is not making enough thyroid hormone, you're probably feeling tired, weak, cold, and gaining weight. Without enough thyroid hormone, the metabolism slows, making weight gain more likely. Even a thyroid functioning at the lower end of the normal range might cause weight gain. Treating hypothyroidism with medication may reverse some of the weight gain. Menopause. Don't blame menopause and the loss of oestrogen for your midlife weight gain. These all may occur around the same time, during your 40s or 50s, but changing hormone levels probably aren't the cause. Aging slows the metabolism, so you burn fewer calories, and any changes in lifestyle (e.g. exercising less) play a role. But where you gain weight may be related to menopause, with fat accumulating around your waist, not around your hips and thighs. Smoking Cessation. On average, people who quit smoking gain about 4 to 10 pounds. Why? First, nicotine curbs your appetite, so once you quit, you may feel increased hunger pangs, which leads to overeating. Nicotine also increases your metabolism, and some people don't decrease their calorie intake to compensate for the slowdown. Lastly, nicotine is notorious for dulling the taste buds, so you may find food tastes better once you kick the habit, which can lead to overindulgence.

EUROZONE CRACKS EMERGE AND DRAGS EUROPEAN STOCK MARKETS LOWER

Market Commentary 4 April Further cracks emerged in the eurozone's shrinking economy to drag European stock markets lower and ensure another day of losses for the UK FTSE 100 Index. Gloomy figures showing services sector activity in the single currency area shrunk more than originally expected in March helped push the FTSE 100 underwater despite more optimistic figures from the UK's own services sector. Attempts by European Central Bank president Mario Draghi to reassure markets after its 10billion euro bailout of Cyprus appeared to backfire, with the Dax in Frankfurt and the Cac 40 in Paris dragged sharply lower. Unchanged monetary policy decisions by the European Central Bank and the Bank of England were largely expected, but markets were spooked by comments from Mr. Draghi acknowledging eurozone inflation is now ‘well below’ target and that the economic malaise has spread to countries that had not previously been victims of financial market problems. In a busy day for economic news, Japan's vow to double the country's money supply with a major quantitative easing drive and still achieve its two per cent inflation target at the ‘earliest possible time’ was not enough to offset concerns over the eurozone's lack of growth. That helped sterling make modest gains on the currency markets, with a pound worth 1.18 Euros and 1.52 dollars. European Central Bank president Mario Draghi left the door open to a possible rate cut from 0.75 per cent and 'various tools' beyond lower interest rates. He also signalled that the turbulent Cyprus bailout

SPAIN BUSINESS NEWS Spanish telephone company Telefónica increased the price of their line rental this week, after the agreement to freeze the rate expired on the 31st of March this year. However, the monthly fee of 14,38 euro is still lower than the European average, which is currently 15,26 euro. The five year agreement to freeze the price came into force in 2008 and is now liable to increase in line with the Consumer Price Index until 2016, when the matter may be reviewed. Receiving their mobile phone bills have put many people on the warpath to denounce mobile phone operator Vodafone, after one consumer association reports receiving countless complaints that the company has reduced the mobile internet allowance of some customers, and are now charging for what was originally free, under the agreements of the tariff contracts supplied. Users on their “Base” and “Base 2” rates have seen a reduction to 1GB of data per month, with each 100Mb consumed thereafter costing 2,42 euro, plus IVA. Users who have been affected are encouraged to contact Vodafone, in writing, as this clearly violates the terms of the contract. Electrical retailer Media Markt has launched a new campaign this week, whereas spending 25 euro or more allows customers to enter into a contest to become a “Golden Customer.” The winner will then be given 2 minutes in one of the electrical stores to pick up as many items as can be carried in your hands, and those goods will be yours to keep. The lucky individual will be notified in the middle of May when one lucky entrant will be invited to grab what they can, in a similar competition which they held two years ago, at which time the winner grabbed 28,000 euro worth of goods.

would not be a template if there are other rescues of eurozone members. In a significant session for central bank announcements, the Bank of England kept interest rates at 0.5 per cent and its quantitative easing programme on hold at £375billion. Policymakers will have been encouraged by the release of better-than-expected figures from the services sector earlier in the session, although many economists are still forecasting more quantitative easing as early as next month. In Europe, evidence is mounting that the 17-nation euro economy is struggling to exit a recession that began more than a year ago, partly as financial institutions restrict access to credit. The ECB’s measure of bank lending to the private sector fell for a 10th month in February, dropping 0.9 percent from a year earlier. Euro-region manufacturing and services activity, measured by surveys of purchasing managers, contracted more than economists forecast in March. “Weak economic activity has extended into the early part of the year and a gradual recovery is projected for the second half of this year, subject to downside risks,” Draghi said. The consensus at today’s meeting was not to cut rates “for the time being.” Draghi said that the ECB will examine other countries’ experiences when assessing what further emergency measures to take. Draghi stressed the ECB’s “determination to fight” any speculation of a euro break-up after Cyprus last month became the fifth euro-area nation to secure a bailout. A botched first attempt to rescue Cyprus sent bank shares tumbling across the region and rattled confidence in policy makers’ ability to tame the sovereign debt crisis. Draghi acknowledged that the initial response hadn’t been “smart.” Information provided by Currencies Direct, leading providers of foreign exchange.

W E CAN WORK IT OUT

Strikes in Spain increased by 11.5% in 2012, according to figures released this week by the Employment Ministry, and the number of workers who downed tools increased by 31%, with 323,871 workers deciding to withdraw their labour through direct industrial action. The number of strikes might seem staggering, but it has now bucked the trend of a decrease in the last few years. In 2009, there were 1,001 official strikes, which dropped to 984 in 2010, before reaching the low point of 777 in 2011, then climbing in 2012 to 878, not including the general strike of March 29th, or the teacher´s strike of May 22nd. Perhaps not surprising is the fact that Madrid was the top of the pops for strikes, with 101,000 workers downing tools, totalling a staggering 329,200 working days lost. With the troubles in the mining sector, Asturias came in second place, with 55,500 workers going on strike, costing 220,800 working days. Across the Valencia community, there were just 6,600 striking workers, who clocked up a total of 27,800 lost days, although that is still considerably higher than the best behaved region, La Rioja, with just 100 workers striking to the cost of 200 days loss, the same number of strikers as the Balearics, although the workers on the archipelago took 800 days off. Workers from Madrid may well feel more comfortable in their jobs though, as a study by Human Resources consultant, Aon Hewitt, reveals that Madrid ranks at number 48 in the

world when it comes to security of skilled workers, albeit that position is a 2 point drop on the previous year. Still ranking higher than Shanghai and Rome, Madrid is just one place ahead of Barcelona, meaning Spain holds two of the top 50 locations on the planet. New York, Singapore, Toronto, London and Montreal are the top five places for job security on the list, with New York seemingly gaining favour, “because the demographic risk is the second lowest due to the high population of working age and the high labour productivity”. But, as all scales must have an average, they must also have a black list, with Luanda (Angola), Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Sanaa (Yemen) and Damascus (Syria) rep-

resenting the cities that pose the highest risk for workers of the 138 analyzed.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

The Auditorio de La Lonja in Orihuela played host to a musical conference surrounding the music of Bach this week, with a violin repertoire given by renowned musician, Joaquín Torre, accompanied by a talk and presentation, as part of the seventh annual International Music Forum held in the city of Orhuela. The driver of a car has was seriously injured following a road accident in the early hours of Thursday morning, when his vehicle collided with a truck on the A-7 motorway, passing through the town of San Isidro. The incident occurred at around 04:15 when, for unknown reasons, the car driven by a man of 40 years of age, and a truck occupied by two people, collided with each other. As a result of the impact, the car driver sustained multiple injuries and was taken by ambulance to the Vega Baja Hospital of Orihuela in a serious condition. The Izquierda Unida political party in Orihuela has criticised the municipal council for spending 250,000 euro in various activities relating to Easter. Complaints were focused around a secular nature in that it was unfair for all residents to foot the bill for a religious event, as well as the fact that streets were prepared and cleaned for the procession, but there are many other residents who do not live on the routes which were improved, so this too is an unfair expense on the entire municipality.

I think that most listeners to Exite Radio were left disappointed when Darren James finally decided to hang up his mike. Despite the fact that the popular broadcaster had been with the station for only a matter of a few short months he had built up quite a following so when the announcement of his retirement from radio broadcasting came a couple of weeks ago we were all left rather saddened. “The reasons were purely domestic”, he said prior to making his announcement public. With the offer of a full time contracted position at a well known airport parking company, in the present financial climate Darren said that he felt that he was unable to turn down such an attractive offer. During his final show with Exite Radio told his listeners “Radio has been my life for the past 10 years and naturally I would love to return one day. My decision to totally change direction was essentially financial based and not being able to reject what was on offer to me at the airport!” On leaving he thanked everyone for their courtesies and support during his time with EXITE Radio which he described as “short but very sweet!”

TMGS AT EL PLANTIO It`s been a few months since our last visit to El Plantio, it was good to see that it is returning to its former glory. with calm, warm conditions you could be excused for expecting high scores, but this is El Plantio where the out of bounds looms perilously close to the right hand side of many holes, notably the 1st, indeed 2 of the 1st 4 tee shots found the farmers field on the right and I if you did managed to find the fairway there is always the water on the left of the green waiting to collect your approach shot. A little later in the round we found ourselves approaching the 17th tee only to be fired upon by a Norwegian member`s tee shot from the 15th!!! It came as no surprise that his group (2nd out) lost 2 full holes on the 1st group; they must have spent lots of 5 minutes looking for his ball (s) we had only

Thursday, 28 March 2013 – Villamartin 35 players set out for Villamartin on a warm spring day for our monthly meeting. No waterproofs needed today and shorts were in order. Teeing off at the 10th, everyone noticed that the course was very busy but no problems arose until nine holes were played and then one or two delays set in. Villamartin is more like an English type woodland course as opposed to some of the newer courses out here but nevertheless still provides a stern test for golfers, with many holes demanding an accurate tee shot, as many of our members found out to their cost! The greens were as always in good condition if a little slow, and the majority of our society will be looking forward to the next time we meet here for the second round of the Eclectic Cup in May. Onto the honours and Nearest the Pins were won by Ian Connell at the 13th, and 'Stormin' Norman

Howes at the 9th. Shaun Staplehurst unleashed his R11 at the 16th to take the longest drive prize. There were several stableford scores in the mid thirties but Ian Connell & Mike Morris tied on 36 points for 1st place, with Ian winning this month, due to his having a lower handicap than Mike. Prizes were presented back at Alfie's Bar, followed by the usual post match buffet (many thanks to Anita & Linda), and not forgetting the copious amount of Estrella consumed by the players! A good day had by all (with more than one or two headaches the following day!) Many thanks also to Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services for arranging our day. Next month’s meeting is at Mar Menor. Roll on Thursday, April 25th! Winners: Shaun Staplehurst, Mike Morris, Ian Connell, Norman Howes

Las Colinas - 03.04.13 Our stableford competition this week was at the prestigious course of Las Colinas. It was an early start of 9am off the 1st and 10th tees, the time did not put anyone off as we had a full complement of 40 members and guests. As always at Colinas,everything went smoothly with plenty of staff to look after us and get thing moving. I know that everyone always comments on the state of the courses we play, but I cannot resist joining in and saying that the course was in really good condition with quality fairways and fast greens, although some were hard to read and the improvements to access to greens and buggy paths has made a big difference. There were only two incidents that were broadcast, one player tried to break his shoulder by taking a divot so big it cast a shadow three foot long and another player got a knock on the head from a ball flying over the green. Luckily they both survived the ordeal and managed to finish. There are always players who revels in these good conditions as the scores below reflect.

Yes Savi and Logan husband and wife were pulled out of the hat to play each other. At this point I want to make it quite clear I had nothing to do with the draw, it was Camillus.

SMGS VISIT VILLAMARTIN

San Miguel Golf Society’s monthly trip to the very popular Villamartin venue was heralded by glorious Spanish sunshine, even at the un-Godly hour that we started from the unfriendly 10th tee. Over thirty members and guests obviously used a very efficient array of alarm clocks, phones and other super technological contraptions to all arrive on time for the eight early morning flights. There were quite a few white, hairy and wiry things hanging out of crisply pressed shorts and before you get the wrong idea – they were actually legs that hadn’t seen a decent day’s sunshine for many a month. Good scoring conditions coupled with a course in lovely condition

TORREVIEJA GOLF SOCIETY

looked like it was going to result in a bagful of Stableford points all round…..apart, that is, from the few who purposely go all out for the coveted “Abacus” award for bottom of the shop! It was an early finish culminating in a super atmosphere on the terrace over-looking the 18th where the prizes were given out by captain, Steve Davis, aided and abetted by his vice, Phil de Lacy. Glen Rapley, Klaus John, Ted Hurley and Mick Cook collected the NTP awards and the visitor’s top two prizes went to Dave Richards (34) and Andy Whiteley (33). Silver category’s top three were Bill Preston (29), Ellen Drakesmith (30) and Norman Padmore (36) hitting top slot as he often does! The gold division was a more tightly contested affair with Keith Wickham in 3rd place with 37, Phil de Lacy in 2nd with the same tally but edging it on C/B. It was left to one of the society’s top players to come in with top score of the day, Barry Roehrig with a tremendous 39……funny isn’t it? He’s handicap secretary as well. The Staines family were having a quiet dinner in that evening so Jenny obligingly won the fine bottle of Rioja which was this week’s “Abacus” prize. Well done to all the winners. Don’t forget to visit www.smgs.org or give Barry a quick buzz on 966 731 033 to have a look at all society matters and details of all the forthcoming Wednesday meetings.

EUROGOLF, LA MARQUESA 43 members took part in the April Monthly Medal at our home course of La Marquesa on Thursday 4 April 2013. Although the weather conditions were conducive to high scoring only 2 players managed to break par. Well done to our guest Mark Rae for coming in under par whilst playing off + 1. . It is with regret that we have to announce the death of one of our members. Alan Bridges who died on Monday, whilst back in the UK. Our Thoughts are with Irene. The results are as follows: Gold Division: 1st Dave Nichols 70 nett, 2nd David Blanchette 73 nett, 3rd Pino Perito 74 nett Silver Division: 1st Frances Buckeridge 75 nett c/b, 2nd Morag Turner 75 nett, 3rd Phyllis Venables 76 nett Nearest the Pins: 5th Mark Rae Supavalu, 11th Beverley Fairhurst Manolo’s, 12th Dave Nicholls Manolol’s, 15th Pino Peerito Bar Sophia, 17th Rudi Muller Lo Maribu, Thanks to all our sponsors.

At Mar Menor on 1st April. It is disappointing to report that we again experienced an extremely windy day for the latest visit to our home course Mar Menor Village although the saving grace was that the wind this time was warm. So far this year we have had to endure similar windy playing conditions on all but three of our Monday fixtures and it certainly does not make the game any easier! The course which is usually immaculately maintained was unfortunately not at its best and the greens and tees in particular were very patchy. Scores on the day, unsurprisingly given the difficult conditions, were poor and only 3 players managed to score 30 points or more with the Captain, Dean Charles, continuing his recent excellent form by comfortably winning division 1 in the Stableford Competition albeit with 33 points only. The scores in division 2 by comparison were even more disappointing and all the winners in this category were probably shocked that they featured in the prizes. The winners on the day were: Category 1: 1st Dean Charles with 33 points. 2nd Charlie Rodgers with 30 points on count back better last 9 holes. 3rd John Edwards with 30 points. Category 2: 1st Chris Byron with 26 points. 2nd Lyn Hills with 24 points on count back. 3rd James Herbert with 24 points on count back.

Back Nine: Paul Manning 34.5 OVERALL WINNER OF MARCH MONTHLY MEDAL – DAVID NICHOLLS. Football Winners: Keith Wright, Tony Stanley, Doug Spiring and Dave Nicholls.

Nearest the Pin prizes were won by Peter Flood, Ron Smith (2) and Charlie Rodgers with Ron winning the 2’s prize fund exclusively. The football card draw was won this week by Charlie Rodgers.

EL PLANTIO 2 GOLF SOCIETY Tuesday 2nd April 2013 Yellow Ball Summertime and April with a new start, sunny and a big number of 18 players today including our two ladies Elsa and Lyn, good to see both of you back giving some much needed colour to an otherwise greyish collection of elderly men. Checking in I was shocked to see that in the draw they had given me the Scottish Connection with Ian H and Dave S and then Gordon A gave me the yellow ball with the message that we had to start at the 3rd! Fortunately it turned out to be Dave with the yellow ball, as my tee shot drifted to the right, flying high over the pond but then hitting the blue lining dropped back into the water. Bad start but Ian and Dave landed both in the right hand bunker and finished with some points. We continued our game in the same fashion, like on the 8th where Dave with the yellow ball landed his tee shot on the green but then from about two meters three-putted to finish with a 4 for 2 points. Looking at other teams struggling with their finishes he muttered something like whether there would be a major fight for the booby position! Anyway we managed to keep our yellow ball safely in play scoring regularly and returned finally with all other teams shortly after twelve to the clubhouse. Out of the starting set of 6 yellow balls only 2 were returned and one team managed to lose the yellow three times!

Before the presentation Ray informed us that he just got a message from Charlie that Charlie’s wife had passed away. Our condolences Charlie, we sincerely hope that you yourself will recover over time and we will see you back in our midst in the future. The NTPs today went to yours truly on the 5th – beating Gordon W by an inch – and to Dave Swann on the 9th hole. Rather low scores today so in third place with 117 points finished Mark, George Stanhope and Dave Swann and in second with 120 points we saw Ray Housley, Lyn Young and Frank Stanhope (both Stanhopes in the top three again!). The winner with 126 points was our team with Ian Henderson – smiling brightly as usual – Dave Smith and yours truly. So all is well that ends well! The chainsaw will have a day off I suppose. The last match of the March battle between Kenny and Frank was won by Kenny with one point, so he took March with 6-4. Today Frank took an early 1-0 lead for April. Next Tuesday’s competition 9th April at El Plantio will be the simplest individual game, Stableford. Put your name down by the Sunday before and make sure to be there on Tuesday on time well before 09.30. See you all in good health! Visitors are welcome, contact Ian Henderson, tel 966716616 or mobile 636 116 230.

ALBATROSS GOLF LEAGUE Round 1 – Alhama Signature Round 1 of the Albatross Golf League was played at the fantastic Alhama Signature course on 26th March. We normally play this course later in the year but due to hollow tine dates our ‘longest drive’ was pulled forward. Anyone who has played this course before will tell you just how good it is and tough, however, combine this with a greenkeeper who must have had too much vino the night before as the pin positions were in some unrealistic/unplayable positions (what was going on on the 13th Green!!) which all meant that scoring was going to be on the low side. With 51 players only Geoff Proudfoot (1st with 34pts) and Fran Cunningham (2nd with 33pts) both from Chemies GS managed more than 31pts. Despite only having 3 players Chemies also won the main team event although this was a very close affair with 3 teams all on 96pts (12 Over Par!) and 7 teams all within 6 points! Next event is at Hacienda Del Alamo – already fully booked! Nearest The Pins (Sponsored by Mick The Grip) – 3rd Martin Moore, 7th Alan Nash, 11th Gary Gillespie, 17th John McAdam. – 2’s club – just one David Grey well done 64€ (just as well you had to walk!). Individual – 1st Geoff Proudfoot (Chemies GS) – 34pts, 2nd Fran Cunningham (Chemies) 33pts Team – 1st Chemies 96pts, 2nd Ebony & Ivory 96pts, 3rd Elite B 96pts, 4th Katie Reillys 94pts, 5th Breakaways 93pts, 6th Brenda’s Babes 91pts, 7th Team Shaky 90pts, 8th Elite A 84pts, 9th Royal Oak A 82pts, 10th Moores Spurs 73pts, 11th Albatross 70pts, 12th La Rioja 70pts, 13th Royal Oak B 62pts.

WOMENS CRICKET AT LA MANGA CLUB

Easter week on the cricket pitches saw the arrival of the Irish Under 19 Ladies Squad and Berkshire Ladies Cricket Club which included members of the ECB England Academy and current England cricketer Heather Knight who has recently represented England in the Ladies World Cup in Sri Lanka. Berkshire sit in a league above Ireland, whose young squad were here to gain experience playing higher ranked opposition and both teams were grateful to be able to enjoy some sunshine and outside cricket! After catching early flights on the Sunday, and arriving to light drizzle, both teams brushed off the cobwebs with some intensive training routines and

fielding drills. There followed 4 days of cricket in which 2 x 50 over games and 3 x T20 matches were played, giving all of the girls valuable pre season practice before their season starts in just a few weeks time. Berkshire triumphed as expected in all of the games but Irelands performances improved with every game against their more experienced opponents. Highlight for Ireland, undoubtedly Lucy O’Reilly, taking 2 wickets in her first 3 balls in an Ireland shirt, at the age of 13! For Berkshire, Alex Rogers 82 not out in the final T20 was the stand out performance with the bat. The week was a triumph for both sides and plans are already underway for a ladies tournament here pre season in 2014.

ESTRELLA DAMM CRIBBAGE LEAGUE Results after Monday 1st April 2013 Sportsman “A” 4-5 Bar Meson Galea TJ's Jays 6-3 Izzys Bar Magpies Catorce Leopards 3-6 Bar Virgo Voles Hoggies Falcons 2-7 E & Ivory Jaguars Izzys Bar Peacocks 5-4 Hoggies Kestrels Bar Virgo Robins 8-1 Sportsman “B” E& Ivory Merlins 4-5 Catorce Lions La Siesta Sharks 6-3 Hoggies Ospreys April 1st and week 27 and the top spot is still very much in contention. This week Margaret’s La Siesta Sharks held on to 1st place with their win against Richard’s Ospreys from Hoggies Bar who are suffering with 5 weeks since their last win. For the Sharks, Andy and Ann- Marie were top notch with 3 wins while for the Ospreys, only Sid and Sue G came close with 2 wins. Still in 2nd place are Brian’s Jaguars from Ebony & Ivory who despite losing 2-7 last week gave my Falcons from Hoggies a bit of a lesson by the same score. The 2 Margarets were on form for the Jaguars with 3 wins, while only 2 pairs for the Falcons managed to get on the score sheet. Up into 3rd place are Val’s Virgo Voles who had the beating of and overtook John’s Catorce Leopards pushing them into 4th place after Les and Tony F struggled without a win while for the Voles, Ken and Norman hit top form with 3 wins.

Up at the Sportsman, their “A” team lost a very close match against Ayliff’s Meson Galea team even though Terry and Harry rode their luck with 3 wins, while for Ayliff, 2 pairs forced the win with 2 wins each. Over at TJ’s Sue’s Jays had the beating of Dorothy’s Izzys Magpies even though Jane had a lone 24, but still joined the other 2 pairs with 1 win each while for the Jays, their 3 pairs were that much better with 2 wins each. In Izzys Bar, Mary’s Peacocks seem to be in revival mood even though they are clinging on to bottom spot, and this week cutting it fine with a close win over Russell’s Hoggies Kestrels whose pair of Brian and Pat choked without a win while for the Peacocks, Jean and Mike rose to the occasion with 3 wins. The highlight of the week with their 8-1 win over John’s Sportsman “B” were Derek’s Virgo Robins whose only failures were George and Dan with their miserable 2 wins while for the Sportsman their pair of Peter and Brian tried to show the way with their solitary 1 game win. Over to the Ebony and Ivory where Keith’s Merlins, who have been climbing the league dropped 2 places in losing out in a close match to John’s Catorce Lions who had 2 pairs with 2 wins while for the Merlins, Pam and Mike slithered to a stop without a win.

ABBEY ANGLING MATCH FISHING REPORT By Terry Screen We fished the second round of the Spring Series at Nancy’s on the 2nd April. The river and all the waterways around us are in a state of flood at present and all the Reservoirs are filled to capacity, so the recent rain falling up country is coming straight into the rivers as the Reservoirs cannot hold any more at present. The water at Nancy’s was very coloured and also flowing fast below the boom making fishing difficult. The pegs either side of the river by the Car

Park being probably the best two pegs of the day, producing the top two weights 1st Stan (The Man) Roberts with 9.300kg fishing the pole using paste, 2nd Andy (The Web Man) Stevenson with 7.760kg fishing the Pole using corn 3rd Doug (The Welsh Gold miner) Hornblow with 5.220kg fishing the pole using maggot All details are available on our website www.abbeyangling.com or from the Match Secretary Terry Screen on 965 32 8368

Both Mat and Anthony Hope to repeat their performances from last year, with Mat racing in the SM Master 35 class and Anthony currently undecided on whether to compete in the elite class or the SM road category. Both brothers race for the Murcia based Supermotoland team that is sponsored by ‘Advance Moves International Removals’ and ‘Stratton Motorsports’ who will be present in the race paddock.

SPANISH LAWN BOWLS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS 2013 By Jackie Breslin Continuing with our build up this year’s National Championships, this week I take a look at the draw for the Ladies and Men’s Pairs disciplines'. But, before I do I would like raise a point that comes up every year, “ Why is there only 2 games on this afternoon, total waste of green space “ we have all heard this and there are various reasons why it happens. The people responsible for making the draw and schedule have many years of experience running large competitions and know every problem there is about using green space and the problems with scheduling. The main point that you all have to understand is that the system in place at the present is tried and tested and causes the least amount of problems. So the official answer to the question is “ Because that’s the way it is “ Men’s Pairs: The holders Ian Brown /Derek Randall have been drawn against Tom Spencer/Andy Bartlet, there are quite a few interesting ties in the early rounds and in my opinion the best of these is Jason

Prokopowycz/Graham Philips against Colin Jackson/Mal Hughes this is too close to call, but hope that my Quesada team mates progress to the next round. The bowlers from the Costa Del Sol are involved in 2 good looking games, namely, Mike Detheridge/Alan Plimer against John Muldoon/ Brian Robertson Jnr., and Tony Frowd/Alan Turner against Reg Cooper/Brian Robertson snr., and the last game to catch my eye is between Derek Eldon/Alan Philips playing Ian Rogers/John Haig. Ladies Pairs ; The Holders Ann Eagle/Sabrina Marks have been drawn against club mates Mary Dyer/Carol Rudge and there are 4 other good ties that could go either way and would be worth seeing, firstly, Sandra Heath/Angie Goodfellow against Gail Chick/Jan Brown then Maureen Kidd/ Lisa Bonsor playing Lynn Greenland/Shelia Stead, Mary Detheridge/Kate Morris, a very experienced pair up against 2 improving bowlers in Rita Goruch/Eve Bell and finally, Chris Dedman/Jan Johnson playing Maggie Furness/Gail Watson

Tuesday Afternoon 2nd April, La Marina were at home to Monte Mar in the second leg of the Friendship Shield, Monte Mar came into this match defending a 30 shot lead from the first leg, As I stated last week La Marina would have to pull out something very special to keep hold of the Shield, Well we did not disappoint, La Marina won on all 6 Rinks with a shot difference of plus 55 Shots to win the Shield by 25 shots, An outstanding performance. well done to everyone who took part.

QUESADA BOWLS CLUB By Doug Beattie Not much to report this week as were in between the Winter & Spring Season which starts today Monday 8-4-13 One bit of bad news is that due to team cancellations the Miralgo games have had to be cancelled but have been replaced by a competition between our members this will take place on Tuesday & Wednesday this week, Please check the notice board for up to date info.so the best of luck to everyone, Also by now our AGM will be over & a new committee elected for next season. There will be no Wednesday Bubbly game due to the green being used by the club

EMERALD ISLE BOWLS CLUB By Bill Allen Well, there's not much going on at the moment competition-wise, that all kicks off again on 8 April. In the meantime we had a friendly game on Monday, 1st, with a team from the North East of England, GOSFORTH EMPIRE BOWLS CLUB. As with most people from that part of the Country, they were great company and an enjoyable game we had! The score is of no importance, what is important is the spirit in which the game was played. Commemorative gifts were exchanged and we certainly look forward to seeing them again, hopefullly in the not too distant future. However, the result may have been reversed if the match had been played on their green. Why is that? Because I don't think we would have stood much chance, bowling in snow!

SUDOKU SOLUTION

CARP-R-US FISHING NEWS For the first time this year the Club fished a match at the beautifully situated Pantana de Beniarres which is just passed Alcoi north of Alicante. This water can be very productive at times with lots of Carp or Barbel being taken, the Club fished zone one this time as it has a lot better access to it, but this zone is not normally as deep as section six.

The big scoring started as early as the 1001 team game with Paul Easton hitting 97,180 and a useful 106 setting up Kevin Fitzpatrick for D16 which he hit second dart. Mark Todd made it 2-0 on D2 after James Brown had registered his usual 2x100. Jim Macey-Lillie, who has played really well this season, hit D5 and a ton in the third to reduce the deficit. Ali O´Keeff narrowly missed a 125 out on D20, partner Easton ensuring the win on D10. Brown and Todd faced Des Field and Leah Chesworth in the second pair. Chesworth´s first throw was T20,T20 and a bounce out followed by a fine 140 from Field. The Gogarty´s pair were nowhere which gave Chesworth the chance of planting her first dart in D18 for an excellent win and a 3-2 score line. That unfortunately was Madigans last leg as more powerful darts emerged from the hands of the Gophers. O´Keeff 140,97,D10 was just too strong for Chesworth 98 in the singles. Brown 81,121,D20 completed a 19 dart leg against Mark Taylor. A further 19 dart leg followed, this time by Easton, 134,100,D20 for the match and two points. Macey-Lillie put up a good show against the younger Todd,

with 100,81 and 80 but Todd held his nerve at the crucial point to take out D2. Another fine effort from Madigans, this time from Field, 2x100 in the next, just wasn’t good enough as Chris O´Brien scored steadily and left with 72 used all three darts, nailing S20,S20,D16. Fitzpatrick wrapped up the match with a showboat finish of D7,D9 for the 12th leg. The Hyenas dashed any hopes of glory this season for the Meerkats with an excellent home victory against the current champions. The first leg set the tone of the match with the Kats scoring 4 tons via Alex Nikolov (2) Derek Kingsbury (1) and Paul Durrant (1) to lead by 300+ points and on a double, only for Geoff Proudfoot to hit D10 for the burglary of the month. Lee Holtham 121 and a 41 out deservedly made it 2-0 and in the third, 2 tons by captain Simon Williams and a 140 from Joe Miller followed by D20 from Williams made it 3-0. Williams figured in the next, this time in the pairs and hit 121, it wasn’t enough however as Nikolov 114 and 23 out pulled one back for the Kats. Durrant 135,D20 made it 3-2 only for Holtham to peg out on D2 after several missed attempts from both sides for a 4-2 halftime score line. Nikolov made it 4-3 on D5 after a 140 and 100, his opponent Williams contributing 2x100 in an excellent leg. Kats captain Derek Kingsbury´s choice of Durrant and Eyre in the next two legs, expecting to take the lead, didn’t materialise as Geoff Proudfoot 2x100 and Sean Smith 100 saw off the Kats challenge for at least a point (6-3). Eddie Bendelow 135, D8 and Graham Todd with an excellent 56 out took the score to 6-5 and the possibility of a draw. In the last leg, which could easily have gone either way, the now much slimmer and Monday singles champion Joe Miller, took out D1 for the important 7th winning leg and match. Busters have found some form of late and this week´s tussle against the Breeze Bar was no exception. The in-form Peter O´Rouke was in fine fettle with 140,100,100 and an 88 out (T16,D20), assisted by Mark Filer 100,100,141. Ray Harvey 2x100, Will Drummond 100, Babs Warren 100 and Irene Russell 140 contributed to a fine win against the visiting Breezers. Away captain Tony Beverley enjoyed a 74 out (S14,S20,D20) with Jane Kelly scoring 114. Both contenders for the Hattons League Plate had good wins and remain level on points with just three matches to play. The Pirates have the task of playing at Gogarty´s in their 25th match, which makes Breakaways favourites to take the plate. However, there are two other matches to play with both captains after the silverware and don’t forget there could be a banana skin there somewhere. Good luck to both teams. Debbie Mackleston´s Mirador Mixtures suffered at the hands of League Plate chasers Breakaways. Even bribery, offering some of her Euronics showroom products couldn’t persuade the visitors to give up the chase with the Pirates. Somehow though Debbie´s well turned out partner and soon to be husband Dave Wright, secured a Benidorm golfing tournament later in the year from the league sponsor. What a wife to have! In the match, some good scoring from the soon to be married couple, couldn’t prevent Mike Douglas from going out on 42 for the first leg. Dan Jones levelled on D10,D5 before Jay Sharpe D16 made it 1-2. In what we now know as the ¨bribery doubles¨ Mike Douglas ignored the tears, bribes and pleadings from the anonymous Mixtures and planted his dart in D20 for 13. Sharpe teamed up with DJ Sarah Simpson 121,92 who promptly made it 1-4 on D7. Ian Sleath and Tracey Simpson´s efforts of keeping the score down failed as opponents Cyril Harrison and Mike Snow made it 1-5. In

a high scoring first singles Jay Sharpe D20 got the better of Mixture Simpson. DJ Simpson scored heavily against Ms. Mackleston, in fact she had a 250 point lead, but succumbed to outside factors to let in her opponent on D3. Mike Snow enjoyed an excellent single against Cheryl Sleath 105, scoring 81,140,80,85 and D3. Lorraine Cox 128 and 66 battled out the last leg against Del Lister 120, who eventually found himself on D2 for the leg. The Committee are pleased to announce the Ladies Singles KO Competition has a new sponsor. The previous sponsors Ferreteria Rioja have withdrawn their valued commitment this season after three years. On behalf of the League the Committee would like to thank Neil and Diane Voyce for their invaluable contribution to Ladies darts within the area and wish them both good luck in the future. The new sponsor is James Brown, the ever smiling proprietor of Gogarty´s, La Zenia. James has for some time expressed his interest in supporting the league in some way and therefore had no hesitation in sponsoring the Ladies Singles. The deal coincides with the entrepreneur opening a new steak restaurant close to Gogarty´s at La Zenia. The establishment, yet to be named, will be opening before the summer and suggestions for a new name can be directed to James at Gogarty´s. The draw for this week´s Singles KO Competition took place last week and Tracey Simpson who drew the names is responsible for the excellent split of players at each of the four venues. At the Hub, Gogarty´s are represented by Ali O´Keeff, Mark Todd and Chris O´Brien. The Bulls Martin Hastings will have a say in what two go through as will Rob Hawkins (Hunks). Down at Gogarty´s organiser Bill Warburton will have his work cut out qualifying against Alex Nikolov and John Eyre (Kats), his team mate Kevin Fitzpatrick and the two Hyenas Geoff Proudfoot and Lee Holtham. Madigans organiser Derek Kingsbury has the pleasure of reigning champion Terry Hagenaars, pairs finalist Joe Miller (Hyenas), Graham Dunning (Bulls) and the formidable Paul Easton, (Gogarty´s). The fourth venue is at the Breeze Bar (San Miguel) where the Breezers captain Tony Beverley has to sort out this following lot and what a lot! Last year´s singles finalist Mark Filer, home player John Bowden, the three Gogarty´s musketeers Jack Todd, Kevin Procktor and James Brown. Madigans Des Field will cause a fright or two and don’t forget the coiffure locks of Phil Waller (Bulls). Only two to go through from each venue, leaving 8 to fight it out at Breakaways on May 9th. The draw at each venue will play its part in determining who goes through, but what a finals in store. The Gogarty´s Ladies Singles KO is also being played this week at the Rendezvous bar. Two will qualify from each of the two boards being used with Amanda Skinner hoping to defend her title and should she, it will be three times in 4 years. Former champion Sonya Cooper (Misfits) is on the same board as is Hilda Wilkinson (Honeys) all players currently in good form. On board 2 last year´s finalist Babs Warren (Busters) has team mate Shirley Roberts to contend with, but watch out for Tracey Simpson, when in mean mood, she is hot. Sarah Simpson (Breakaways) could also upset the apple cart if in the form she is capable of. One name rarely mentioned as she has only been playing for a short while is Leah Chesworth, watch out for her on board 1.

AMY’S COMING HOME ......BY DAYA DAVE Syndicate’s name. The group is able to watch the races via the wonderful technology of internet streaming to a laptop. Good homes were found in the UK for the syndicate’s greyhounds at the end of their racing days. Recently they have retired a small brindle bitch that had captured their hearts, Seathwaite Omega was her racing name, Amy her kennel name. Small she may be but Amy is as tough as they come. In 133 races, Amy won twenty four times, was second twenty times and third nineteen times.

With all the negative stories about the plight of dogs on the Costa Blanca it makes a refreshing change to report on a happy event. Based in San Miguel is a small group of greyhound racing enthusiasts, most owned racing dogs in the UK before retiring here to Spain. They got together and formed the San Miguel Amigos Syndicate and set about purchasing a greyhound and finding a trainer. In 2008 the group had its first runners racing at Belle Vue in Manchester. More dogs followed and at one stage there were four dogs running under the

Brian Allen, one of the syndicate members decided along with his wife, Jan, that they wanted Amy as a pet here in Spain. Arrangements to bring Amy over are well underway. All Amy’s paperwork (passport), inoculations and micro-chipping has been completed. Air conditioned luxury transport is also booked. So all being well Amy should be here sometime in April, swapping the cold and wet of Manchester for the sunshine of the Costa Blanca and blissful retirement. The syndicate are planning a meet and greet party to welcome Amy to Spain. So if you see a small brindle greyhound out and about in San Miguel go up and make a big fuss of her.

CAMPOAMOR EASTER AMERICAN TENNIS

The tournament was played on Good Friday, 29th April and was well attended, with the competitors enjoying pleasant weather, without the persistent wind we have endured this winter. The 19 players, 10 men and 9 women played a series of 7 game matches, mixed doubles partners were drawn randomly for each round. After the preliminary rounds, the top two scoring men and women were drawn partners and played a one set final. In tennis, people talk about important points and this was certainly the case in the final qualifying match. With the scores at 3-all, Alison Vos was serving the sudden death point to Mark Chinman’s partner, Ros. Mark’s team won the point, meaning he was to finish 2nd, instead of third and Alison was to finish 3rd, instead of equal 2nd. MEN AV Score David George 5.0 Mark Chinman 4.4 Bob Hamments 4.25

WOMEN Lillian Meagher Di Birtwisle Alison Vos

AV Score 4.6 4.4 4.2

The final saw David and Lillian beat Mark and Di, despite a mid-set fight back, by 6-2. David’s actual partner Sue Jones, was a spectator this time, recovering from a recent operation. Sue has reached the final of many tournaments at Campoamor, winning more than she has lost, and so was delighted to watch David’s first win.

WORLD TITLE ELIMINATOR DAYA NUEVA Don’t forget that if you want tickets for the boxing show that is being held at Daya Nueva on Friday night they are currently available at a discounted price at the Leader Offices in La Zenia. If you pay on the night entry will cost you euro 20 ringside and euro 15 tribune whilst buying them in advance at The Leader will save you euro 5 on each. Latest news is that 37 year old Mihai Macovei from Romania has now been named as the opponent for Ricky Pow. Far more experience than Pow he will certainly provide a stern test for the young Brit who I’m told is in ‘tip top’ form as he prepares for the biggest fight of his life. Should Ricky win this final eliminator we can expect to see the world title fight held locally in the early part of the summer.

GREENLANDS BOWLS CLUB ‘OPEN’ The tournament went really well once again, the weather held and everyone had a great time as usual. There were some really tight games all through the competition, with several teams only losing by one shot. Quarter finals stage saw 3 Greenlands teams fighting for a place, plus a mixed team of Barry latham, Wendy Latham and Gail Watson. Greenlands members were: (1) Zoe Wilcock Keith Page and Jim Wilcock. (2) Margaret Dewar, John O'Brien and Chris Dewar. (3) Brian Tomlin, Florence and Mike Edwards. Congratulations to you all. Semi finals were really tight, with Jim Wilcock's team battling hard to the final end, eventually losing by 1 shot to a Country Bowls team headed by Gerry Gough, whilst the team from San Luis beat a

Quesada trio of Peta Rhodes, Tom Hill and Bill Pain. The Final lived up to all expectations, with great shots from both sides. Well done to champions Colin Jackson, Allan Bowen and Mal Hughes from San Luis, with the runners up slot going to Lin and Charlie Watkins plus Gerry Gough from Country Bowls. A big thank you must go to our sponsors, Ibex insurance and Winning Express ( incorporating Sporting Arbitrage), and also everyone from Greenlands Bowls club, who gave their time to make this competition the success that it was.

TORRY HANG ON TO SHARE POINTS FC TORREVIEJA......0 CD ELDENSE...........0 With both sides languishing at the wrong end of the table this really was a ‘must win’ for both FC Torry and their visitors, as they scrap for survival with games fast running out. Five points from their last three games, including one last time out against the league leaders, saw Eldense going into the fixture on a decent run of form. In Torry’s case their last five points have taken double the number of games to achieve. Neither side could afford to sit back if they were going to beat the drop. The last time these two sides met was in November when the spoils were shared. A draw at the Nelson Mandela on Sunday would do neither side any favours. Team news saw Villanueva and Rafa both suspended for the game with Tur keeping his place in goal but, unfortunately, in front of the best crowd we have seen at the Nelson Mandela the opening exchanges were spoiled by a blustery wind with which it took both sides some time to come to grips. The first action came on 18 minutes, a shot from Eldense’s Oncina, which he hit straight at keeper Tur. The home side came into the game shortly

after with four consecutive corners the last of which ended with the ball in the visitors goal. As the referee led it out it was difficult to see why. Nevertheless Abel earned the first yellow of the game for his protestation. Mauro and Arnau went close for the visitors late in the half which ended with a fierce Cuco Ros free kick which was turned round the post by the Eldense keeper. We were all hoping that the effort from Cuco Ros might signal a 2nd half revival from FC Torrevieja but it hurts me to say it was anything but. The half actually belonged to the visitors who did everything but put the ball in the back of the net. The home side were fortunate to hang on and then, in the 89th minute of the game the gods finally smiled on FC Torrevieja. Koeman was bundled over in the box and the referee immediately pointed to the spot. Torry had got out of jail! Unfortunately the euphoria was short lived as the same player hit his spot kick straight at the Eldense keeper. Next week, with games running out, Torry travel to bottom club Catarroja where nothing less than 3 pts will do.

Ever since I have been reporting for the Leader this match has always considered to be a local Derby, always entertaining. This game was no different. As expected both teams started lively and a good chance from Alberto early on was well saved by Ros in the home goal. We could see that Thader wouldhave to work hard to get anything from this match. A Quino shot rockets off of the visitors upright with Ros nowhere but Horadada replied with a great effort by Cristian. Thader were still making chances but the visitors were also looking very sharp. Control, though, was letting both sides down although the visitors were showing why the are up there with Ensa causing problems with his pace. Just before the interval the visitors had a shot cannon off the Thader bar. Horadada edged thehalf but came away with nothing, perhaps a little harsh. The second period saw Horadada come out the blocks at a rapid speed but the Thader defence was holding fast, dishing out in equal amounts to what they were taking. The Horadada defence was also living up to its thriftiness having had so few goals

against. From the view of the fans it was a watchable match but a lot of the acting was beginning to creep in. I must admit that so far the ref is doing well, more than can be said for his assistants. Thader wasted a free kick with Lloyd shooting well wide. He was to redeem himself, however, with a rocket of a shot which Ros managed to tip over, a yard either way would have settled it. The home fans were being treated, not only to a good game but to some good Thader football. At half time I said that one goal would seal this game and that proved to be the case. Horadada, who ruled the first half, were to get the short end of the stick 2 mins from time when a cross was headed home by Pomeres to seal the points for Thader. On the whole Horadada must feel they were mugged, but that's football. The fans were treated to some very entertaining football and Thader are clawing their way out of danger. Fortunately for the Reds Almoradi also went down at home by the same scoreline to Pinoso so no change at the top. Next week for Thader a trip to Alcoyano.

NO SCORE ‘BORE DRA W’ FOR ELCHE ELCHE CF ................................0 CD LUGO...................................0 Elche drew goallessly for the second consecutive match, this time at home to tenthplaced Lugo from Galicia, who soon seemed to set their stall out for a point at fortress Martinez Valero, where Elche have only been beaten once this memorable season. A decent crowd of 13,345 saw Elche field their strongest side, winger Xumetra this time replacing Aaron from last week’s somewhat fortunate draw at Racing Santander. Elche just couldn’t get going with any purpose, Angel and Coro starved of the ball, as neither Rivera or Generelo in central midfield, nor Fidel and Xumetra wide seemed capable of supplying them. Lugo dominated the midfield, and it was the Galicians who had two good chances in the first half, a deep cross was volleyed by Zamora but saved well by Herrera, the second a low cross both Etxeita and Herrera touched but slid straight across the goal with fortunately no-one to put it in. Just like last week it was 40 minutes before Elche even had a direct shot, and once again it was the wayward Fidel who skied his effort well over. The crowd’s whistling that greeted the half-time whistle was partly at the negative defensive tactics of Lugo, endlessly passing it to and from their goalkeeper, and partly frustration against the Elche team’s basic lack of any creative activity. Would this sad home display continue into the second half? The same team came out to resume the same service, but something surprising happened after only five minutes. Elche club captain Generelo (who I don’t rate) was taken off in favour of the hard-work-

ing Mantecon, and guess what? At last we began to see some action, particularly down the right between Xumetra, Suarez, Coro – oh, and Mantecon. The free kicks and corners rained in from Albacar and Suarez as usual aiming for the heads of the big boys Etxeita and Peligrin, but the visitors’ defence had done their homework on Elche and literally headed them off every time. For both sides the subs continued as Fidel had fiddled ineffectively for far too long and Carles Gil replaced him. For the last fifteen minutes big Berry Powel finally came on up front for Angel, who as usual had run his socks off. Having a big, useful target man like Powel is a luxury Elche seem to think they can do without these days, but he is difficult to mark and suddenly, at last the Illicitanos looked as though they might actually win the game. Although Elche huffed and puffed nothing really exciting happened, but Lugo did hit the top of the bar with one thundering effort: but if it wasn’t good news at one end, that resolute Franjoverde defence that has served them so well this season did it again to keep yet another clean sheet, and keep the points steadily coming in. While it is a worry that the goals have dried up it’s gratifying that those teams beneath Elche are struggling themselves. Last week’s lively-but-lowly opponents Racing Santander pulled off a great win away to second-placed Alcorcon to take them temporarily clear of the drop zone, but also meaning Elche’s point makes the difference at the top thirteen precious points, with Sunday games to come: but at least Elche have a minimum eleven point lead at the top. At the bottom, Murcia are one place above the four that will go down, which includes Alicante’s Hercules – ooh er... Next week Elche are home again, this time to bottom-placed Xerex – surely there must be some home goals? Mucho Elche!
