TORREVIEJA TO TWIN WITH ITALIAN CITY Los Salerosos Musical Society travelled from Torrevieja last weekend to Faleria, a small town in the province of Viterbo in Italy, where, along with a group of dancers form the Municipal Dance School, they took part in La FrĂşstica, an Italian festival of traditional music. The musicians were accompanied by Mayor Eduardo Dolon and Councillor of Culture, Luis Maria Pizana, who were both invited to attend the festival by the mayor of Faleria.

Resplendent in their colourful uniforms Los Saleros gave a magnificent performance as they marched through the streets of the town accompanied by a choreographed routine from the Torrevieja School of Municipal Dance. The occasion was also used to reopen the recently refurbished town hall at which ceremony the guests of honour were Eduardo Dolon and the Prefect of the Province of Viterbo. During the ceremony the Faleria Mayor, Marco del Vechio, proposed that the two towns should begin the process of twinning. Continued on Page 2

Continued from Page One He said that there had been a strong musical bond between the two towns for more than a decade, as a result of the solid friendship between Faleria musicians and Torrevieja. He further announced the renaming of a square in Faleria with the name of Torrevieja, handing over a copy of the street sign to Eduardo Dolon. Snr Dolon thanked the mayor and reciprocated by presenting a street sign bearing the name of Faleria which would be devoted to a Torrevieja street on his return. Snr Dolon then made a short speech in Italian highlighting the great bonds of union between the people of both towns. The festival ended on Sunday

night and the performance was so outstanding that according to Musical Director Guillermo Hernandez Los Salerosos Musical Society have already received numerous invitations to travel back to other parts of Italy. Similarly the students from the Municipal Dance School have been also been invited to dance again next December in Rome, along with the band of the Italian Navy. On returning to Torrevieja Los Salerosos Musical Society will continue with the final planning for the eleventh edition of the International Festival of Bands, which will be held during late August. But before that further engagements will be met in Germany, Belgium and Italy.

HABANERAS AT THE BEACH THIS FRIDAY 12 JULY

Last year over 5,000 people attended this popular musical event, which has now become one of the most popular activities in the torrevejense summer calendar and once again, as proved popular in 2012, the stage will be located on el paseo de la Avenida de Los Marineros overlooking the sea.

The formal announcement was made last week by the Deputy Municipal Habanera and Councillor for Culture, Luis Maria Pizana. He was accompanied at the press conference by the manager of the Habaneras committee, Juan Agustín Manrique. This will be the 21st occasion that this festival has been held in the town. It will start at 10.30 pm on Cura Beach where the audience will be located on the sand. This is just one of the activities being held as a prelude to the 59th International Contest of Habanera and Polyphony, which will take place toward the end of the month.

AIR TRAVEL NEWS Spanish small airline Good Fly has announced the launch of two new flight routes between Madrid and Barcelona and San Javier airport. Operating every day except Saturday, the company will be using ATR aircraft, with a capacity of 60 to 70 passengers, and will launch in September. Although the flights will be of a smaller scale to some, it does shed more doubt on the future closure of San Javier airport, once the final decision to open Corvera is made. Good Fly was founded in 2010, operating charter flights as the company lacked full licences to operate as an airline. Since then, the airline has continued to grow by offering flights on behalf of other airlines and now has a fleet of smaller aircraft at its disposal. They are looking at flying outside of Spain in the future. May the 15th, 1933, was the day a commercial flight, with an 8 passenger and 2 crew carrying Fokker Trimotor plane, first touched down at what would become Madrid Barajas airport, over 80 years ago, having been officially opened in 1931 to serve the aerodromes of Alcalá, Carabanchel and Getafe, bearing the simple but descriptive name of Aeropuerto Nacional de Madrid. In total in 1933, the airport saw 378 commercial flights, carrying 2,873 passengers, through an airport that didn´t even have a terminal building or paved roads, as they were still being built. Now, in 2013, with 80 airlines flying to 179 destinations in 65 countries across 4 continents, around 123,000 passengers use the airport every day on the 374,000 yearly flights, but Thursday marked another milestone in its history, as the one billionth passengers used the airport facility. Columbian Alonso Fernández Ortiz was the lucky recipient of a model aircraft and certificate, which became the focal point of his Twitter feed as he was recognised as going down in the history of the airport. According to analysts, Madrid Barajas airport generated more than 305,000 jobs and over 15 billion euro in added value, the equivalent of 12% of the total revenue of the city.

Ryanair has launched its 2013 winter schedule, with 6 Routes To Alicante, Barcelona (Girona), Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Malaga And Tenerife, all beginning in October 2013, which are now on sale on www.ryanair.com. The company celebrated the launch of its Bournemouth winter schedule by launching a 100,000 seat sale across its entire European network.

COUNCIL TO PAY 50,000 EUROS TO CHANGE AIRPORT NAME Central government has confirmed that the cost of renaming El Altet airport to Alicante-Elche Airport, will be 50,000 euros and that the ilicitanos must bear the cost of replacing the signage. The announcement was made in a reply given by the National Executive to a written question to Congress raised by Rep. Gabriel Echávarri PSOE Alicante. In the letter the Central Government said that Aena Airports assess the cost at 50,000, euros and they already have the agreement of Elche Ayuntamiento. Councillor Antonio Luis Martinez-Pujalte said last April that the airport management had estimated the cost as up to 50,000 euros, but this was the “maximum amount” and it was hoped that the final cost could be closer to 40,000 euros. The council has since taken steps and is now hopeful that the costs will be met by local business. In another question raised by Echávarri the Ministry of Public Works says that the new name of the airport, Alicante-Elche, will be consistent with the criteria laid down by the International Civil Aviation Organization. The name change was first requested by the former socialist mayor, Alejandro Soler, but the project was deferred. However, it was revived following the election of the new government, and last September a letter was sent to the Minister of Development, Ana Pastor, and President of AENA President Jose Manuel Vargas Gomez, requesting that the airport be renamed in Alicante-Elche. It was in February when the request was given the green, on the understanding that the City council assume the costs. It is hoped that all of the new signage will be in place before the holidays in August. The official code name of the airport, ALC, will remain unchanged, as will the name that most people use for the airport, no doubt.

The fire started at about 7.30pm as the female driver was driving along el Palacio del Agua toward the roundabout at the end of the road. For reasons not yet clear, the car started smoking prior to catching fire. The woman immediately pulled over to the side of the road, stopped the car and ran away from her vehicle. The driver escaped as the car burst into flames. Her only injuries are said only to be minor burns to her body caused when her t shirt was ignited as she left the car. The vehicle was said to be an Audi of between 10 and 15 years in age. It was quickly engulfed in flames which burnt with such ferocity that the vehicle was destroyed within minutes.

The scene was quickly brought under control by national Police, who cordoned the area off, while the bomberas smothered the flames with foam. A police spokesman said that the fire occurred at a particularly busy junction with many passers by focused on attending the first day of the sales and it was extremely fortunate that there were no injuries to any member of the public.

The boat 'Gitano London' (London Gypsy), which was abandoned in 2009, just off la Playa Chica (La Manga) was moved last week to an area that will make it’s eventual salvage much easier. It was dragged to a much more remote area where it will no longer present itself as a danger to swimmers. The move was jointly carried out by Civil Protection, the Maritime Safety Agency (SASEMAR), who is based in Cartagena and the San Javier Harbour Master. The authorities first found the boat abandoned on la Playa Chica 4 years ago. Efforts were made to

reclaim the boat but they were subsequently abandoned. Now, however, as the 'Gitano London' has become an increasing problem to swimmers the decision was taken to move it to a more secluded place. Work was initially carried out to assess the state of the vessel before carrying out a thorough decontamination prior to the move. The complete removal of the vessel; is said to be taking place very soon. But in the meantime the Civil Protection Service from San Javier will continue with their constant observations and surveillance around the stricken vessel to prevent any incidents of pollution or any further danger to swimmers.

TORREVIEJA NEWS R OUNDUP A union representing workers at the Torrevieja elderly residence, have expressed increasing concern over the lack of repair to the kitchen ceiling, which they say is getting worse by the day, and they believe is in risk of collapse. Cracks first started to appear some two years ago, which were repaired almost immediately, but they have gradually got worse and became almost seemingly beyond immediate repair some six months ago.

A car, carrying the driver and two children, crashed into a wall on avenida de Baleares this week, having collided with another car whilst carrying out an overtaking manoeuvre. Fire fighters and local police attended the scene and treated those involved for minor injuries.

PSOE councillor, Javier Manzanares, has questioned the rate of pay budgeted for the presenter of the 59th Habaneras concert in Torrevieja, Carolina Casado, believing that the 600 euro per hour pay is somewhat excessive, with a total fee of 14,126.75 euro for her duties during the weeklong event. This figure doesn´t include accommodation, makeup, meals and the wardrobe of the La 1 and TVE presenter. The opposition are also criticising other fees such as 8,000 euro on the hire of generators. Torrevieja town hall are facing more criticism of double standards, after a number of local traders have joined the Los Verdes and PSOE in opposing a trade fair due to take place from the 15th of July at the Vista Alegre paseo. The town hall has previously complained to Orihuela about their plans to liberalise Sunday trading laws, as they say it would damage local business in Torrevieja, but those opposing the fair see this plan as another blatant way that their own council is ignoring the needs of local traders and will have serious repercussions on business during the summer months.

Staff from the Torrevieja municipal dog pound have launched an appeal to trace a dog that was stolen from their premises. The 6 month old female pit-bull cross has white fur, with dark and brown spots around her body and ears. Anybody who may have seen a similar dog is asked to contact the local police. Torrevieja is the latest location to launch its own beer, thanks to the Comedus shop in the centre. Famed for selling fine food and wine, to celebrate their birthday, the store has launched “La rubia Lola”, a beer which they say is 100% from Torrevieja. The presentation of the beer took place on Friday in the store, much to the obvious delight of those able to sample this local brew.

The local police have been defending their use of “riot gear” for tackling a number of “looky-looky” men in Torrevieja, stating that the use of the equipment is both legal and ethical, as a number of officers have suffered assaults in the past when dealing with the traders. The police were trying to clear an area in which numerous traders selling illegal goods have converged, some of who threw chairs at the police. Torrevieja still plans to prosecute the victims of these activities, by charging those who purchase the items rather than the sellers, still being criticised by many for persistently failing to deal with these illegal activities in the past.

‘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.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME? I fondly recall one expat from a few years ago who ran a thriving business in the Canary Islands, until greed finally overcame common sense and the business, somewhat predictably, failed. I enjoyed Peter’s company, but became continually irritated by what became his catch phrase of “What’s in it for me?” Any ideas for promotion, additional services for customers, developing good relations with the Town Hall, which is an essential part of business life in Spain, and even charitable events always met with the same predictable response of “What’s in it for me?” I appreciate that businesses are not charities, and a good businessman is always seeking opportunities to develop and expand the business and not to indulge in too many favours and freebies. However, a focus upon a philosophy based solely around “What’s in it for me” is not a good strategy. The most effective and profitable businessmen that I know in both Spain and the Canary Islands are people people. That is to say that these businessmen and women actually appear to like people, and doing business with them always appears to be a pleasure. In Spain, as well as other Latin countries, it is often not what you know, but who you know that is important. Successful businessmen and woman in Spain and the Canary islands are part of a wide and fluid social network, and will quickly go out of their way to get to know those in power or positions of influence, yet give the impression that they do not care about such issues. Political loyalties too are also very flexible, although I suspect that being pragmatic would be the preferred term. Under no circumstances would they admit to any idea of “What’s in it for me?”, even though that may be the hope and even-

tual outcome. Developing good relations with the local Town Hall and politicians is also something that many expat businessmen forget to cultivate. These are small islands and everyone knows everyone else, as well as much of their business. Uncomfortable it may be, but it can also work to one’s advantage. I recall having a conversation with a lawyer several years ago about a property that I was interested in. Within minutes I had been introduced to the manager of a local bank, with whom I had no previous contact, and offered a mortgage without the bank knowing anything about me, simply because the lawyer played golf with the manager of the bank, and the bank manager’s father in-law happened to own the property company of the house that I was interested in purchasing. Not only did I receive a free lunch, but also a favourable price and a ‘special’ mortgage interest rate. I have never known a transaction to proceed as smoothly and as quickly as that one. I suspect that a lack of awareness of the hidden agenda is where many expats fail when trying to establish a business in Spain and the Canary Islands. When opening a cafe bar, for instance, it may be more appropriate to turn a blind eye to the bill for a coffee and tapas when dealing with the local police, than to present a bill. In turn, a blind eye will often be shown when opening hours are accidentally exceeded or a customer is caught smoking inside the bar. I recall one example when Peter presented a bill for a round of drinks to a group of off duty

policemen who were drinking in his bar one evening. Peter became very angry when, a few days later, he was reminded by the same group of policemen that he was infringing local laws and liable to a heavy fine by having too many tables and chairs on his outside terrace. I am not suggesting that expats indulge in bribery and accept corruption, but adopting a little sensitivity to the local culture is often a wise course of action. You see, favours are repaid in kind over here and the wise expat quickly understands and accepts this.

TOO MANY EYESORES ALONG N332 IN ORIHU ELA COSTA Travelling along the N332 through the area known as Orihuela Costa it would be hard to believe that the major economic activity in this location is tourism. No attempt has been made by the politicians based some thirty kilometres away in Orihuela to make this road attractive to residents or more importantly holiday makers who contribute so importantly to the economy of the Orihuela Costa community. It is singularly lacking in flowering shrubs so common along other stretches of road. The oleander bushes which are now a mass of colour end miraculously where the Torrevieja section of the N332 enters the Orihuela Costa area. Many people will well remember the problems encountered driving along the N332 and how they were exacerbated during holiday periods before it was widened between Pilar de Horadada and Torrevieja. The N332 was a victim to the unprecedented building boom that saw Orihuela Costa develop from a collection of a few scattered urbanisations to the vast urban sprawl of over 33,227 residents and several times more people during the peak holiday months. Effectively the N332 segregates the few coastal urbanizations from the much larger number of communities living on the western side of this road. The widening of the road has further divided an already divided locality especially as there are so few bridges or underpasses that allow residents or more importantly tourist easy foot access to the beaches. This is a total disregard to

one of the major economic activities of the Comunidad Valenciana and the statements made by politicians in Valencia that all municipalities need to do everything possible to promote and encourage tourism. If one travels from the over 8 kilometre length of the N332 as it cuts through the Orihuela Costa one can but wonder why there are only four footbridges over this road that serves a population of 33,227 residents, not counting the huge influx of people during holiday periods. To make matters worst one of these footbridges at Dehesa de Campoamor links the coast with a big open field without a house in sight. Whereas those people living on the vast urbanisations behind Playa Flamenca to La Mosca beaches have no safe means of crossing the road. In fact between the road underpass at Mercadona and the footbridge at Punta Prima it is 2.3 kilometers of busy road where one daily sees people dicing with death to access the breaches. There has been much discussion in Orihuela about the pedestrianisation and beautifying one of the main streets in Orihuela at considerable cost where as there has been no mention of beautifying the eyesore of the N332 as it segregates the Orihuela Costa Community. There has been some half hearted concerns expressed by politicians based thirty kilometres away about the lack of crossing points over the N332 but no action has been taken irrespective of the vast population that live on the coast or depend on the tourists that flood to this area.

The needs of the Orihuela Costa Community will only be met if residents ensure that their voice is heard and ensure that they vote in local elections. Sandpiper The population of Orihuela Costa need to ensure their voice is heard and the only way to achieve this is to ensure that residents are on the electoral register and make sure they vote in local elections.

AROUND ORIHUELA AND THE COSTA The Orihuela government team has given the green light to auction plots of land not sold in the first auction, in particular around the El Barranco area. The ten plots have been valued at 11.6 million euro, which will be “distributed according to the budgets”, with “40% on the coast, 30% in the district and 30% in the city”, according to the Mayor, Monserrate Guillén, in a press conference. The Mayor also detailed a number of projects such as the one million euro investment in rainwater collectors at Campoamor, the draft reform of the La Regia Park, worth 165,000 euro, which includes the construction of the pipeline to evacuate rainwater, skateboard area, a running circuit and a pet zone, amongst other elements. Also, there are plans for a bike path network, a youth centre, reforming pavements of La Zenia, building an eco-park, worth up to 130,000 euro, repaving the promenade at Punta Prima and some of the money no doubt going to pay the million euro fine for compensation of the expropriation of land for the N332 widening scheme, which partially opened in 2009 and fully in 2010. It has been revealed this week that former councillor from the CLR and CLARO coalition group, Asunción Mayoral, has been in talks with the opposition Partido Popular, which could result in a Censure Motion that would, in turn, result in a vote of no confidence and the overthrowing of the current bi-party coalition government of the Los Verdes and PSOE. Former Mayor Mónica Lorente, ousted by voters in 2011, said that the PP “has always shown its readiness to provide the stability needed for Orihuela”, and stressed that it is time to finish “with an adrift government”, run by a mayor “not dedicated to managing but manoeuvring to stay in power”. In recognition of the onset of summer, “and taking into account the current economic situation being experienced by public institutions of our city”, the councillor for town planning and licensing, Antonio Zapata, has signed a decree to extend the opening hours for tourists based entities between the 14th of June and the 30th of September. Certain theatre and concert cafes, pubs and karaoke bars and special exhibition halls will be able to open at 12:00 and close at 4:00 in the morning, half an hour later than the current 3:30. Other cyber-cafes, restaurants, cafes and bars will be able to open from 6:00 to 2:30, an extension of one hour, and banqueting halls will be able to open between 10:00 and 4:00, a half hour expansion. However, as licensing and planning rules differ from venue to venue, it is always best to check with the town hall as to the implications on these changes on individual venues.

An awareness campaign conducted by the Civil Defence saw around 600 volunteers in mountain boots and rucksacks and taking to the mountains of the Orihuela municipality over the last 3 weekends, with the aim of collecting rubbish left behind by less considerate walkers. All the rubbish was placed into specially located bins for collection, for a campaign that ran over a number of weekends. It is now hoped that the awareness of keeping the countryside clean has been raised, which will result in a reduction in rubbish left in these scenic areas of the municipality. The Councillor for Social Welfare, Emilio Zaplana, and the president of Cáritas Orihuela, Ana Lucas, signed a collaboration agreement between the two institutions for contributing to the activities at Casa Galilea, which will see the town hall contributing 22,000 euro to the Catholic Church run charity to help needy families. However, this money will not be going directly to those in need, but will be provided by the city will help pay staff costs and those derived from the development of the project. The Councillor for the Orihuela Costa, along with representatives from the gas supply company, Cegás, presented their plans for the gasification project for the Orihuela Costa this week. Rafael Botella, the CEO of the company, explained how natural gas comes through distribution networks, whilst also detailing the advantages and potential uses of piped gas. For this project to install the service, the company has invested a total budget of 810,000 euro, with the goal of building the distribution network of a six kilometres covering the areas of La Regia, Dehesa de Campoamor, La Zenia and Las Calas, later spreading to the rest of coastal residential areas.

OVERHAUL FOR VEHICLE TESTING STANDARDS Up to 2,000 people die in Europe every year due to vehicles that are unfit for the road, but this number could be significantly reduced under new rules to be voted on by EP next week. The legislative package includes minimum standards for checking vehicle maintenance, a risk-based system for roadside inspections on commercial vehicles as well as rules on the registration of vehicles.

The transport committee rejected a Commission proposal to test cars more than six years old every year and instead spoke out in favour of maintaining the current test frequency of every two years for these cars. Committee members also want to introduce mandatory checks for family caravans every two years.

The package includes minimum standards for periodic roadworthiness tests. "It establishes a regime of periodic roadworthiness tests of vehicles on the basis of minimum standards to ensure a high level of road safety and environmental protection," said Werner Kuhn, a German member of the EPP group who is responsible for steering the proposal for periodic testing through EP. The committee also approved a risk rating system for conducting roadside inspections on commercial vehicles. Firms whose vehicles are shown to be in a bad state during inspections would be flagged up and be targeted for roadside checks. These measures should make European roads much safer. "According to the European Commission the number of fatalities caused by technical defects should be reduced by as close as possible to 1,100 yearly," said Olga Sehnalova, a Czech member of the S&D group who is responsible in the EP for the proposal regarding roadside inspections. There will also be new rules for cancelling registrations or suspending registration certificates for vehicles that pose a risk to road safety. Vilja Savisaar-Toomast, who is guiding the proposal for registration documents through Parliament, pleaded in favour of more harmonisation. The Estonian member of the ALDE group said: "We must have clear and consistent rules across Europe, especially when these vehicles get a new owner or are transferred to another member state." However the legislative package will need to be approved by Parliament as well as by the Council before it can enter into force.

PARKING CHARGES INTRODUCED IN GUARDAMAR Workers were busy last week installing parking ticket vending machines for 850 parking spaces close to the beaches in Guardamar del Segura which are to be charged for from today, 7 July. Mainly affected are residents of the urbanization Benamor, who watched as workers set up the ticketing machines in ‘the blue area’ occupied by the streets closest to the coast. Many local residents have complained that they will no longer be able to park vehicles close to their homes which they consider to be a security risk as they will not be able to look outside to check them. Some have said that they will refuse to pay the charges. They predict that the lack of free parking at the coast will simply move drivers to other areas. The blue area map goes from la Avenida Ingeniero Cordoniú, it continues along la Avenida de la Libertad and Cervantes up to Benamor urbanization. Almost the entire coastline will now be regulated.

007 SUBMARINE LOTUS OFF TO AUCTION

BY NICK IRELAND No Bond car has ever done anything as outrageous as transform itself into a submarine. Used to incredible effect in the film The Spy Who Loved Me, starring Roger Moore, the white Lotus commonly tops the polls when generations of movie fans are asked to vote on their favourite film cars of all time. Like all the best Bond cars, the Lotus was a veritable war chest of weaponry and gadgetry, all designed to fox and foil the enemy, whilst also helping Bond to another hard-won victory for Queen and country. This incredible Lotus Esprit Series 1 ‘Submarine’ Car is due to be sold at auction, but for millions of movie fans out there, the appearance of this iconic Bond car on the open market represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The vehicle to be offered by RM Auctions at its forthcoming London sale, 8-9 September, in Battersea Park, is the one and only fully functioning car especially designed and built for the famous underwater sequence seen on screen in the 1977

film. Abundantly authenticated, and known as ‘Wet Nellie’ on the set, it was developed from one of six Esprit body shells used in the making of the film. As the only car to be built into a fully operational, self-propelled ‘submarine’, by Perry Oceanographic, based in Riviera Beach, Florida, it is the vehicle which claimed the most screen time in the film. The driver of the car was Don Griffin, a retired U.S. Navy SEAL and test pilot for Perry, who operated the vehicle utilising its motorised propellers while manoeuvring with levered steering mechanisms. At the time, the car was said to have cost over $100,000 to create (equivalent to nearly a half million dollars today). RM Auctions sold “the most famous car in the world”, the Aston Martin DB5 used by Sean Connery in the enormously popular Goldfinger and Thunderball movies, for an incredible £2.9 million during its 2010 London sale. For further information on RM Auctions’ forthcoming London sale, or to view a frequently updated list of entries, visit rmauctions.com or contact RM’s London office at +44 (0) 20 7851 7070.

DR PEDRO F CELLE – YOUR LOCAL FAMILY PRACTITIONER Dr Pedro Celle is a local family doctor who practices general medicine. He is located close to the Orihuela Costa Town Hall prior to which he worked for many years as a Paediatrician in Cartagena. He is a great supporter of alternative medicine and one of the few local doctors to offer Ozone therapy, a form of alternative medicine treatment that increases the amount of oxygen to the body through the introduction of ozone. The many benefits of Ozone therapy include the treatment of various diseases including cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and many others. Health and Healing do not exist without oxygen. Without food human beings can survive for months, without water we can survive for weeks. But without oxygen, we would die within 5 minutes. Oxygen is our most immediate need. Diseases and degeneration can be prevented through proper oxygenation of tissues and organs. Furthermore, many diseases can be prevented, relieved or cured by re-establishing the delivery of oxygen to affected areas. Today it is no longer sufficient to simply breathe to ensure proper oxygenation. Our bodies are constantly bombed with toxins in our air, water, and food. In the city, oxygen levels in the air we breathe are declining. The combination of these effects results in a lack of oxygen in the body, which could result in diseases and cancers. In order to ensure proper oxygenation we must go further than simply breathing. Ozone (a less stable, more active form of oxygen) not only oxygenates the blood and issues, but is the only known therapy to enable the delivery of that oxygen to the tissues, and directly into the cells where it is needed. In addition to oxygenation, Ozone (or "activated oxygen") has also been proven to boost the immune system, stimulate the release of anti-

cancer substances from white blood cells, increase circulation of blood, and ensure that the red blood cells are flexible enough to travel through even the smallest blood vessels in order to reach the tissues and cells furthest from the heart. The end result is a strengthening of the immune system, and oxygenation of all of the tissues and cells of the body. WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF OZONE? Ozone stimulates the production of white blood cells, which are necessary to fight infection. It is an anti-virucidal. It increases oxygen and haemoglobin disassociation, thus increasing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells. Ozone is anti-neoplastic, which means that it inhibits the growth of new tissues like tumours. It increases red blood cell membrane distensibility, thus enhancing their flexibility and effectiveness. Ozone also increases the production of interferon and Tumor Necrosis Factor, which the body uses to fight infections and cancers. These increase the efficiency of the anti-oxidant enzyme system, which scavenges excess free radicals out of the body. It accelerates the Citric Acid Cycle, which is the main cycle for the liberation of energy from sugars. This then stimulates basic metabolism. It also breaks down proteins, carbohydrates and fats to be used as energy. It increases tissue oxygenation, thus bringing about patient improvement. This therapy therefore treats the grass roots of most disease: lack of oxygen, and a weakened immune system. It is therefore not surprising, that so many diseases (over 150) respond positively to these treatments. These diseases include: • Chronic Fatigue • Fibromyalgia • Candida • Heart Disease • Lyme Disease • Lupus • Multiple Sclerosis • Macular Degeneration • Diabetes • Stroke • Cancers • AIDS Dr Celle is available for consultations now. As an introductory offer he is currently offering the first treatment absolutely free so if you

have that niggling injury or illness that you would like remedied why not call him now on 639 628 925. Should you be unable to visit the surgery or would prefer to be treated at home Dr Celle is also one of the few local practitioners who also pays house calls. For more information see his ad below.

NATIONAL NEWS ROUNDUP A court in Castellón has ordered the owner of a dog to pay 98,651 euro in compensation to a man who fell 10 metres down a Cliff face whilst riding a quad bike, after he was chased by the woman´s 3 dogs. In addition to the compensation, the woman also has to pay 5,664 euro to the company who own the quad bike, and a fine of 60 euro. The incident happened in November, 2010, when the man and a friend rented the quads to drive around the coastal zone of Peñíscola. They observed the 3 dogs, barking, two of which seemed in a “threatening manner”, so the riders chose to avoid them and one of them drove off the cliff, suffering multiple injuries that resulted in a 35 day stay in intensive care, with a total of 201 days recovery. The man also states that he suffers ongoing conditions as a result, such as headaches, sleep disturbances, memory and libido loss, erectile impotence and other functional limitations. A Local Police officer in Dénia filed charges against four colleagues for harassment. The City Council referred the complaint to the prosecutor. In addition, the city of Dénia has opened disciplinary proceedings against four police officers for a case of harassment. Although historically a problem in many traditional public and private sectors, workplace harassment and bullying is now outlawed in Spain, due to recent changes to the Penal Code. Whereas perpetrators may have been left to get away with their actions in the past, “those who, in the scope of any employment or civil service relationship, take advantage of their superiority, making hostile or humiliating acts, or degrading treatment”, is considered as a serious breach. Spanish environmental engineering firm Ros Roca has this week secured an 8 million euro contract to provide 60 environmentally friendly waste disposal vehicles to two British cities. Organised through the Dennis Eagle company, the trucks will soon find their new homes in Armagh, Northern Ireland, and Buckinghamshire, England. International business equates to 85% of all sales for the company, the UK being responsible for 34% of their total income. Last month, the company sold 6 vehicles to neighbouring Portugal.

In June, sales in eco-friendly cars rose by 47.73% in the domestic market, with an additional 65 vehicles being sold on top of the 44 registered the same month of 2012. Electric car sales stood at 328 units during the first six months of the year in the Spanish market, representing an increase of 36.67% compared to figures for the same period last year, Madrid beating all locations in Spain with 168 units sold, an increase of 71.43%. On the other hand, hybrid vehicle deliveries stood at 4,921 units in the first half of the year, 4.63% less, compared with 5,160 units registered during the same period of 2012. In June, sales of such cars reached a total volume of 702 units, representing a decrease of 19.95% compared to the 877 units sold in the same month last year. Guardia Civil divers recovered the body of a man in his 70´s, believed to have fallen into a cistern in Finestrat accidentally.

HERO BUS DRIVER SAVES GUNSHOT VICTIM

In a scene reminiscent of an action-packed cinematic blockbuster, a Madrid bus driver is being hailed a hero, having rescued a 45 year old man from a gun wielding attacker who was chasing the victim through the streets of the city, having apparently already shot the man in the chest. The driver of the 188 public service bus was approaching the Marqués de Vadillo roundabout, in the Carabanchel district, at around 10pm on Thursday night. The driver witnessed a man, later to be identified as a 45 year old Ukrainian national, clutching his chest, weaving from side to side of the road, entering the bus lane, forcing the driver to take evasive action to avoid hitting him. The driver then realized that the victim was being chased by another man, who was apparently carrying a gun and later to be found to be of Russian origin. Without hesitation or fear of repercussions, the driver then pulled the bus alongside the victim, opening the doors, at which point the man fell to the floor of the bus, and so the driver closed the doors and sped off towards the roundabout plaza, to summon emergency services to assist. Medics from Samur were quick to attend, treating the man inside the bus for a gunshot wound to the left of his chest, and, although he was bleeding profusely, he was conscious and able to explain what happened. After being stabilized at the scene, the victim was transferred via an intensive care ambulance unit to the Gregorio Marañón University Hospital, where he was admitted with a serious prognosis. Officers from the Madrid Municipal Police launched an immediate search for the gunman, and opened up an investigation into the situation. Meanwhile, the victim owes his life to the quick thinking actions of a bus driver going about the routine business of transporting passengers, never considering for a minute how the night might develop into a story of heroism.

GOVERNMENT OFFER BAIL OUT TO LOCAL COUNCILS

The National Government of Spain has announced a plan to which 518 municipalities, all with financial problems, will be offered the chance to clean up their accounts in exchange for tough austerity measures. The Secretary of State for Finance, Antonio Beteta, made the offer after the meeting of the National Commission for Local Administration in Spain, the CNAL, where he said that of the current 8,117 municipalities in the country, 518 of them meet at least one of these conditions for assistance, that they have a negative cash balance, negative general expenditure or outstanding debts to the government. Of the 518 qualifying councils, the majority, with a total of 112, are in Andalusia, followed by Castilla La Mancha with 94, and finally Valencia where there are 61 town halls facing difficulties. In his statement, Beteta said that, “In 2012 another 3,457 municipalities finished the year with a sur-

plus”, so as to emphasise the fact that those councils who are struggling are in the minority, in fact, they are just 6% of the total number of municipalities. He then went on to explain that the ministry has designed several mechanisms for municipalities “drowned by debt”, so they can keep paying essential services and wages, with flexible payment plans for clearing pending bills with the tax and social security systems. However, in order to get the bailout, there are a number of conditions all surrounding austerity measures, such as each municipality following a plan which includes reducing their operating costs, raising taxes, prohibiting extensions on budgets or creating new organisms. Last year, Spanish municipalities were able to reduce their spending on staff costs and wages by 1.2%, another 5.3% on consumption and 19% on investment. The 8,117 achieved a surplus of 2,338 million; double that of 2011, with the overall reduction in expenditures reaching 5.6%.

SONGS THAT WILL LIVE FOREVER Over 600 eager music lovers filled to capacity the exotic venue of the Orihuela Costa Resort at La Zenia on Saturday night for the second performance of the day given by two of the Costa's leading choral entertainment groups, Melody Makers International and the talented youngsters of Cantemos! Children's Choir. The concert started with the rousing 'Rhythm of Life' from Sweet Charity and followed immediately by the quodlibet 'I Believe' where the men of the choir sang I Believe whilst the impressive ladies chorus sang the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria at the same time! This tour de force of choral singing laid the ground plan for the entertainment which was to follow. The eight nationalities of Cantemos! Children's Choir sang the favourites Streets of London and Skye Boat Song to enthusiastic applause by the audience. More evergreens followed, including Imagine, Night and Day, and One Moment In Time in which the two choirs combined to outstanding effect. Special mention must be made of the performance of Nun's Chorus sung by the ladies of the chorus and the superb solo voice of the Costa's leading soprano, Mary Beer. The audience appreciation of this piece was rapturous and vocal. As a finale to the first half of the programme we were treated to a bubbly, happy performance of Get me To The Church On Time by what conductor and presenter Nigel Hopkins described as 'our Welsh cockney', Derrick Davies and Melody Makers International. Cantemos! Children's Choir joined the whole company on the stage for an encore which sent the audience into the interval with huge (but warm) smiles on their faces. The second half opened with Jeff Hyde and chorus singing Annie's Song. We were then treated to an absolutely delightful rendition of the Eva Cassidy version of Over The Rainbow sung by the 18 year old Janelle Gaskell. The audience were wild with excitement and appreciation of this exceptional performance. In fact all the three young

soloists, Elise MacGregor (Winner Takes It All), Holly Neeson (Danny Boy), and Janelle Gaskell showed that music on the Costa is in safe hands with their outstanding performances. There were several other memorable moments in the second half. Firstly, the Children's Choir performed a very emotional song, Can You Hear Me?, in which they actually signed the words of the chorus in British Deaf Sign Language - in total synchronisation. There was hardly a dry eye in the house! Then Nigel Hopkins himself made a rare stage appearance in a duet with French singer, Christine Lombardy, singing I Remember It Well from Gigi. This, along with the excellent Eric Berg who sang Swinging On A Star with the children, drew some of the largest applause of the night. Melody Makers versions of When I Fall In Love, Unforgettable, One Day More (Les Miserables), and the enigmatic The Prayer filled the programme with the beautiful choral sounds which are expected from this well-trained chorus who sing the entire programme from memory! The grand finale was a version of Unchained Melody which rose to rousing finish when Cantemos! joined in, and 600 people went home not only flushed with happiness, but from the heat which built up in this magnificent venue throughout the evening. The CB Samaritans benefitted by some 600€ from this concert.

HABANERA ACCOMMODATION TO COST 216,000 EUROS Torrevieja City Council has put out to tender the contract for the accommodation of the presenters, juries and International Choirs that will be coming to the city to work and perform in the 59th International Contest of Habanera and Polyphony from 22 to 28 July. They have set aside 216,000 euro, from the budget of half a million, to meet the contracts needs. Three hospitality companies have been invited to tender although the PSOE opposition have said the procedure should be completely open. At previous contests the municipality has only ever offered the contract to a single vendor claiming they were the only one’s who could perform the service because of their ability to accommodate all choirs.

MAR MENOR ROTARY CLUB CELEBRATE 20 YEARS

PIPE BAND SUPPORTS ARMED FORCES DAY

Rotary Club Mar Menor, based in San Javier celebrated its 20th anniversary last week by placing the Rotary symbol on a roundabout in the town. The monument is of a 24 tooth sprocket with 6 spokes. The mayor of San Javier, Juan Martínez Pastor, carried out the ceremony together with the President of the Rotary Club Mar Menor, Mariano Svetliza, committee and club members. The symbol has represented Rotarians from all around the world since 1924 and it will remain in its selected location, a traffic island on the road Pinatar - San Javier for the forseeable future. Juan Martinez congratulated the members of the Rotary Club Mar Menor, which is a non-profit fund raising organization on the celebration of it’s 20th anniversary in San Javier, and thanked the group for the vast difference their fundraising efforts have made in the region during that period.

The Torrevieja Pipes & Drums travelled to the town of Pinoso to help celebrate the Armed Forces Day on the 29th June 2013. Paul Thomas, the owner of the T-Tapas Bar at Pinoso invited the band to play to help raise money for Help for Heroes. Paul is an ex service man and has run the bar for the last 2 years. He said that this was an ideal night to raise some much needed funds for his favourite charity. His customers were highly delighted when the band marched down the street in front of the bar making a grand entrance. They continued to entertain the customers and Mark the dancer received a standing ovation after his display of the sword dance and the Highland fling. The night continued with live music and a spectacular firework display. Photo shows Paul thanking the band for their participation in the wonderful evening.

The aircraft id destined to operate on long haul routes to Bangkok and New York, but as a treat to European travellers, the flagship aircraft will be used on shorter journeys around Europe from the 4th of July until the 4th of August. Plane spotters and passengers on routes between Oslo to London, Alicante, Malaga, Nice and Barcelona will be able to experience the latest addition to their fleet, the first of 8 similar aircraft that the airline has ordered to serve its new long-haul routes between Scandinavia and the US and Asia.

The company has opted to modernize the fleet with state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft. A total of 73 such aircraft will be delivered from 2008 to 2014. The company website lists a number of benefits of the 787 Dreamliner, including 20% lower fuel consumption per passenger compared to similar sized aircraft, more environmentally friendly with 25-30 percent reduction in NOx-gasses, significant reduction in cabin noise, improved air quality in the cabin and Dreamliner can fly more than 1,000 km longer than any similar sized aircraft. The scheduled route for the aircraft has been listed as: Oslo (OSL) - London Gatwick (LGW) – Thursday and Sunday. Oslo (OSL) - Malaga (AGP) - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

HOSPITAL ANNOUNCES MORE OPERATIONS DURING SUMMER

The Department of Health announced on Monday that the Vega Baja Hospital will expand its surgical activity during the months of July and August, with the opening of theaters during the evenings. To carry out the additional programme, two or three operating theatres will be in use from Monday to Thursday, at which time the hospital intends to carry out an average of eight to ten additional surgeries every evening, depending on the type of pathology and specialty in question, "but always ensuring the same high standards of procedure and excellent patient care”. In total an additional 117 operating sessions will be carried out. The authorities hope that the measure will achieve a reduction of the surgical waiting list. The hospital manager, Carlos Arenas, said: "This program is a significant commitment by our health professionals and the hospital itself, because we want to offer the fastest possible solution to the suffering of people who come to our hospital." According to the hospital, between January to May this year there have been a total of 5,611 procedures carried out using general and local anesthesia, which has meant an increase of 1.2% over the same period in 2012. Surgery also has increased in all specialties, mainly in Gynecology, General Surgery, Orthopedics and Ophthalmology, during the same period.

ORIHUELA COUR TS PUT AT RISK THROUGH FAULTY AIRCON

The Senior Judge at the Courts of Orihuela, Doña Joaquina de la Peña, asked the Supreme Judicial Council for their authorization to bring forward the start time of court hearings from 9 to 8 o'clock, with the aim of completing the day’s business an hour earlier. He says that the working conditions in the building are unbearable as a result of poor air conditioning installation, which does not work. On Tuesday Occupational Risk managers said that the temperature on the first floor of the building, where there is no ventilation, had exceeded 30 degrees which was incompatible with optimum working conditions. In requesting permission the Dean has provided a copy of their report to the President of the Supreme Court, Pilar de la Oliva. The courthouse is relatively new, having opened in June 2005 at a cost of more than five million euros. Just eight years later the air conditioning does not work and during the summer months the building becomes an oven. It would appear that problems began to occur with the airconditioning system in early June since which time some staff have reported the temperature as high as 40 degrees. Similar problems also occurred with the system last year when they were only rectified following the direct intervention of the Minister of Justice, Serafin Castilian.

SAN MIGUEL GOLF SOCIETY

www.yourlocalnewspaper.info

RUNNING WILD AT FIRST SANTA POLA 10K Local club, “Running Wild A.C.” entered the first holding at this race distance in Santa Pola, with very creditable achievements from 5 Vet Ladies & 1 Vet Man, who braved the 9pm Saturday evening start. The crowds lining the whole route around town & along the sea front gave excellent support and the organisers made a big effort hosting the race & involved a large team of helpful volunteers in their smart green shirts. Running Wild´s individual results were as follows:Monica McGranaghan (8th Lady Vet `A´) in 43:35. Ingrid Patursson (9th “ Vet `D´) “ 50:44. Howard Bednall (32nd M Vet `E´) “ 52:05.

San Miguel Golf Society’s monthly visit to Quara’s flagship course at Villamartin is always a well attended day and July’s event was certainly no exception. It’s hard to believe that this track, the longest established course in the area, is now over forty years old. Looking splendid in the Spanish summer sunshine, the course was in great shape apart from the faint traces of the dreaded “tramline” effect which could still be seen, and sometimes felt, on the back nine greens. The yellow blocks were placed on the competition tees and when you realize that this makes the course only around 130 mts less than the whites, a glance over your shoulder found most of the pro tees only a few paces back. I’m sure all players were pleased to find that the 17th was the exception to the rule! It was good to see Barry in attendance for the day although he’s still not quite ready for partaking. Understandably, rather like a kid who’s had his favourite toy taken away, he’s missing the golf terribly and to spend five or six hours at least breathing in the atmosphere probably helped a little…….or was he simply getting under Val’s feet? Only three of the par 3’s gave up their NTP prizes

and they went to Ken Flaherty, Norman Padmore and Derek Johnston. Fellow scouser, Brian Whitby, took the guest prize with a very commendable 37 and Ross Rankin came a close 2nd with his 35 points. John Aitchinson once again took the top slot in the silver division with a healthy 40 points leaving a count-back situation to sort out the following three 38’s !!! This resulted in 2nd spot going to Ellen Drakesmith, 3rd to Norman Padmore and 4th to Keith Stevenson. The gold division saw fellow Scotsmen, Willie Buchanan (39) and Alan MacDonald (38), coming 1st and 2nd, proving themselves to be a good omen for Andy Murray’s bid later in the day for a spot in Wimbledon’s semi-final. Phil Ashby and John Drakesmith needed a count-back decision on their 35’s and were awarded 4th and 3rd respectively…..that’s in the golf by the way, not at Wimbledon! Don’t forget to visit www.smgs.org to keep updated on all society matters or simply give Baz a buzz on 966 731 033 to get details of all forthcoming Wednesday meetings at which visitors are always welcome.

Heather Gould (17thLady Vet`D´) “ 56:42. Linda Gossage (1st “ Vet `G´) “ 72:26. Frauke Gerlach (1st “ Vet `H´) “ 74:06. Both Linda & Frauke were naturally very pleased with their trophies & podium visit. The only let-down to the event was the disparity with actual race distance, which checked out over the 10,000 m , enough to affect somewhat the runners´ times. Footnote: Earlier that day in Cardiff, the Clubs oldest member, John Pascoe (VM 80) ran in the City´s Parkrun 5K. 375 entrants set off at 9 am in perfect weather on level paths, John finishing in 26:57, 1st in his category & 12th highest “age related scorer” at 77.98%.

EL PLANTIO 2 GOLF SOCIETY.....By John O'Brien On Tuesday we held an individuals competition, this was the Medal/Ford, this consists of the front nine holes played as a Medal round and the back nine as a Stableford. 17 members were playing this week. The results are found by taking the score from the Stableford 9 holes and taking that away from the net score of the medal round. It was a case of lucky number 10 as all three winners had a 10 handicap. One member managed to score a 9 on the seventh, but as he still had not got over the water by then he decided to give that one a miss and have a no-return on his card. El Plantio 2 Golf Society, are full members of the Par 3 course at El Plantio and anyone who would like to join us would be welcome. We meet at 9:00am on Tuesday for our main weekly competition and on Friday and Sunday at 9:00am for a friendly Stableford game.

LA TERCIA - THE NEXT COURSE TO CLOSE? For those of you who don’t know the area La Tercia is a delightful 9 hole course located just off the C3319 Murcia – Balsicas road which is always in good condition and has an impressive modern clubhouse. The course has one particular claim to fame in that it has the only aqua driving range in Spain and one of only a handful in Europe. It is only a few short months ago that I reported of the sad demise of Mosa Trajectum as a victim ob the global economic crisis and it would now appear that La Tercia has similar problems and need an injection of funds from banks to continue operating. I have been informed by a concerned resident at La Tercia that the condition of the course, as a result of these financial pressures, is deteriorating with tees and fairways in poor condition and the famous aqua driving range empty of water and therefore unusable. The impressive clubhouse is now virtually closed to the public with only limited access and the café/restaurant closed. Hopefully the banks can assist but in these difficult times and with so many other courses fighting for the golfers looking to play in the region this could prove difficult. I hope that the situation will improve and I will keep you informed of any changes in these circumstances.

QUESADA GOLF SUPER LEAGUE INAUGURAL SUMMER DOUBLES This competition was to be played at the picturesque Font de Llop.

Runners up with 44 pts. were John Robertson & Phil Herrington. On Wednesday we played the final round in our 4 from 6 Monthly Medal Competition. Round of the day came from in form Norman Page who, after his exploits last week in President's Day, won again with a superb net 67 which included two 2s.

Friday saw us participating in a Charity day organised by Leeson Street Bar which is in La Rioja, Villamartin. The bar is owned by our member Barry Holtham. It was an all day event at the bar with a Stableford Competition for golfers at Las Ramblas in the morning. After the golf the golfers returned to the bar for a Hog Roast, music, dancing, raffles, etc. Thanks to Barry & his family for putting on a great day which I am sure will raise a considerable amount for their

chosen charities. The golf results were: Gents. 1. Lindsay Forbes 39 pts, 2. Brian Dent 39 pts, 3. Steve Golding, Ladies. 1. Sue Golding 40 pts, 2. Joyce McClusky 36 pts, 3. Anne Marie Weisheit 29 pts. Par 5s Gents - John Wheeler 10 pts. Ladies - Carole Wheeler 10 pts. Par 3s. Gents - Friedel Knebel 8 pts. Ladies - Olga Haubner 10 pts. The photograph shows Gents winner Lindsay Forbes with President John Wheeler.

TMGS MATCH REPORT FOR MAR MENOR Our 3rd visit to the world of the IRM courses saw us at the Mar Menor Golf Resort and it must be said that it was a pleasure to play this track with the fairways and greens in quite excellent condition. Not only that, this is a course where the staff appear to take delight in servicing your golfing needs, unlike one or two other courses. The general consensus after the game was for a definite return when possible. The only downside (if one can even venture to call it that!) was the

heat and the humidity. Summer for sure, has arrived and with a vengeance. Golfers now need to ensure that they take on plenty of liquids during the round, dehydration is silent but the effect is dramatic and studies have shown the adverse effect it can have on a golf game. The results on the day were quite impressive and it needed scores in the 30’s to win the prizes with the exception of Alan Rickers taking 4th in the Silver with 29 points, one point ahead of Kate Helm who took 3rd place with 30. The Runner-up in The Silver Division was Ernie Wilson on 32 points and continuing on his Valencia winning streak was Colin (sponsored by Hippo Clothing) Marsden with 36 pts. The Gold Division was won by James Hunter who needed a countback to defeat Mat Taylor, both scoring 38 points (and a cut in handicaps). Well back on 34 points and claiming the 3rd spot was Steve Higgins followed by Alan Rixson on 32 points. Photo is of the Silver Category Winners. The four NTP’s were won by two people, Mat Taylor and Chris Oatley. The Best Visitor on the day was Adam Robinson with an impressive 35 points. Our next game, Wednesday 10th July 2013, see’s us at the La Finca golf course, so if you fancy a game just look at our website www.tmgs.org or call the Match Secretary on 966 71 9604. We also run small matches on Friday’s and if you fancy a fun knock around, contact Steve Higgins on 968978188.

EL RANCHO BOWLS CLUB

EMERALD ISLE BOWLS CLUB

SABA SUMMER TRIPLES

Tuesday evening’s Premier 20 match was against La Siesta, a splendid bowls session in good company. Both teams won all four rinks at home and El Rancho took the points for the overall shots, with good play all round. Wednesday morning found our Kings Cup team travelling to San Luis to play the Whites and although we battled well, winning on 2 rinks, we lost on three and missed out on the 2 points for the shots by 86 to 103. Ladies singles: Marrianne Holtham 15-21. Mens singles: Drew Gerrard 21-15. Pairs: Jane Hamill, Stew Hamill 18-17. Trips: Margaret Odell, Alex Morrice, Dave Whitworth 21-24. Rinks: Jim Jarvie, Malc Elmore, Rod Wright, Mike Smith 11-26. On Friday afternoon we travelled to Emerald Isle to play The Vulcans, despite both teams playing well, several rinks could have gone either way. But alas, The Vulcans took good advantage of the home mat and took all 14 points, but El Rancho did put on a good display and made them work hard for their deserved win. Malc Sykes, Shirley Edwards and Ron Odell 14-17. Merv Armstrong, Mike Barnett and David Whitworth 14-19. John Cleal, John Skipper and Alec Morrice 13-21. Malc Elmore, Ron Edwards and Mike Smith 13-8.

The Emerald Isle held their regular annual match last week against the formidable Indalo team. And what a game that was! We won on one rink out of seven. The only winning team was John Mullarkey, Tony Harris, Les Bath and Sheila Wickens. Let’s hope for a better result when we visit Indalo next month. After the game a meal was enjoyed beside the pool before Indalo left for home. On Friday 28th the Victors played at home against Greenlands Gladiators. The Victors won on one rink and drew on another, resulting in a shot difference of 104 to the Gladiators 113, 3 points to 11.

5 JULY - WEEK 10

COUNTRY BOWLS REPORT By Lynne Bishop The King's Cup Blue league Clarets travelled to the Emerald to play the Dukes, it was touch and go with both the Pairs and the Rinks, a fight to the bitter end but the Clarets finished on top and along with a great win from the Triples they came away with an eight point win. Ladies & Mens Singles came in second best although Pat Patton's game was close. The pairs of Steve Pearson & Peter Whitehall won 15-12 and the Rinks four of Geoff Paylor, Sheila Whitehall, Eric Bishop & Gerry Gough tumbled over the line with a stroke of luck to win 17-16. The Triples trio of Lynne Bishop, Brian Patton & Ken Cuthbert had their game stitched up early on and won 35-12. Overall shots, Clarets 87 (8) - 82 (4) Dukes. Red league Merlots experienced a hard time when they played away at Quesada, they had a disappointing result of two points and that came from their Rinks team of Carole Donnellan, StJohn Broadhurst, Joel Fernandez & Brian Kirk who won 17-16. Overall shots Merlots 72 (2) - 103 (10) Quesada. The last of the SABA league games on Friday saw both teams coming under fire from the bombers, namely the San Luis Wellingtons and the Quesada Lancasters. The Foxes went down 2-12 at San Luis with just one win coming from Lin & Charlie Watkins & Ken Cuthbert 23-11. Overall shots, Foxes 76 (2) - 124 (12) Wellingtons. The Badgers got off to a bad start by going into their game at Quesada a team short, they did win on two rinks, well done to Carole Donnellen, John Palmer & Dennis Birkett for winning 26-10 and Derek Gunning, Joel Fernandez & Bryan Kirk who won 18-15. Overall shots, Badgers 75 (4) - 112 (10) Lancasters. Thanks go to our respective Captains Geoff & Alan and the selectors for their hard work putting the teams together, not an enviable job.

GREENLANDS BOWLS CLUB

MONTEMAR BOWLS AND SOCIAL CLUB

By Steve Hibberd Both our Glosters and Gladiators pulled the curtain down on another SABA Spitfire league season, one which is probably best forgotten! Last seasons champions Gladiators, put up a great fight at home to San Miguel Christians, and although they won 3 rinks apiece, the visitors won by 4 shots overall, to take the match 6-8. Roll of honour: Jill Collins, Terry Lemon, Vic Mahomet 20-9. Jim McLean, Tony Hodges, Bobbie Sims 20-18. Nadine Bater, Sue Mahomet, Brian Pocock 20-11. Glosters meanwhile visited Emerald Isles, where they took on the Victors. Not a happy ending to the season I'm afraid, for the Glosters failed to win on any rink. In a week void of any good news, our Monarchs also failed to pick up any points in their Kings cup fixture at Quesada. A 12-0 defeat was very harsh, for the overall shot difference was 10, and the most any rink lost by was only 4. To make matters worse, the Princes cup ladies also lost, but hey ho, it's only a game after all (did I just write that?). Tuesday's Premier 20 action involved a match against La Marina. Both our singles players came out on top. Jim Oliver (21-19) earned his side 2 points at home, whilst Cas Thomas (21-5) performed admirably at La Marina. Barry Collins skipped the rinks side of Mary Lockley, Tony French & Mike Veale to a comfortable 19-13 victory, as the team slipped to a 6-12 defeat. Congratulations to 2 of our trips teams that entered the recent La Siesta open. Brian Tomlin, Sheila Stead & Mel Brown, met Jan Pocock, Graham Bater/Brian Miller & Brian Pocock in the semi final, in which Mel's team just nicked it. Although they couldn't quite repeat the same performance in the final, it was nice to see Greenlands flying the flag once again. Please note that members wishing to use the green after 6pm, MUST inform Hayley, who will in turn log the request in a diary. She can either be advised at the bar, or by telephone (966 844 399). An email has been forwarded to all club members, explaining any additional responsibilities etc.

Local lightheavyweight Ricky Pow outboxed Latvian champion Arturs Kulikauskis for six rounds en route to a unanimous decision In Daya Nueva on Saturday night. All three judges had the 26 year old well in front carding scores in Pow’s favour 59-55, 60-56 and 58-55. In a six round contest the margin of victory was overwhelming. Pow showed maturity of a much more experience boxer using his jabs to pick apart the Latvian on his feet. The calm, calculating home fighter won almost every battle during the contest without putting himself in harm's way. With 30 fights under his belt against some very good opponents Kulikauskis knew that he had his work cut out very early on as, after a cautious opening, Pow hurt the Latvian with two stinging lefts. Pow was pushing forward and as he gathered confidence he had the Latvian back on the ropes and wobbling in the second. The Latvian hit the canvas after a swift right-hander from Pow in the third , but was saved by the bell as the young Brit ran out of time., however, the third round onslaught from Pow had opened up a cut over the Latvian’s left eye. Pow continued to work on the front foot and on the odd occasion that he was pushed back onto the ropes he quickly turned his opponent to regain the dominant position centre ring. The Latvian southpaw failed to land a punch of consequence on Pow throughout the entire fight although his long left jabs found their mark a few times in the fourth and fifth. Pow backed off a little to avoid getting caught but by this time he was clearly ahead on all three judges scorecards. A late flurry from the Latvian was turned around by Pow in the sixth with two powerful shots. Kulikauskis came to the fight with a chip on his shoulder and plenty of attitude. He leftwith a loss, a cut eye and lumps on his face, although he was gracious in defeat showing respect after the fight Speaking to Pow after the fight he told the Leader "I have to take it one step at a time, I respect the sport and anyone who does it. That's why I train so hard." It will be interesting to see the leap that Pow has taken in the rankings when the numbers are reworked later this week. I fully expect him to have moved to within the top thirty light heavyweights in Europe. The achievements of Pow in Daya Nueva on Saturday night can be put in perspective by the fact that three years ago the young Latvian Arturs Kulikauskis fought for the WBC Youth Intercontinental cruiserweight title at the age of just 19, and was being touted as one of the hottest properties in Europe. It’s time to sit up and take notice. In the evenings supporting bout Magomed Azuev from Torrevieja edged the Latvian heavyweight Alexander Selezens in a scrappy affair to wrap up proceedings. All in all this was another fabulous night of boxing at Daya Nueva but such a pity that it was played to a half empty auditorium. These young men and women who dedicate the best part of their developing lives to the sport deserve better. It’s such a shame that when we seem to be writing about the efforts of today’s youth for the all the wrong reasons, those who decide to take a disciplined and a healthy approach to life are not rewarded more for their commendable efforts.

FC TORREVIEJA CONTINUE TO LOSE KEY PERSONNEL Due to a considerably reduced budget from last season (180,000 down to 70,000 euros), Torry have decided not to continue with Joserra as their manager for 13/14 season. At the time of writing, his replacement has not been named, but I'm sure all Torry fans will wish Joserra the best of luck for the future. Another depoarture that will be equally felt is that of Torry Capt Jorge has left the club to join Novelda. This will be a big blow for Torry - he was such an inspiration for the club. Lack of funds seems to be hitting many Spanish football clubs hard, none more so than Gandia, who only 2 seasons ago were in div 2b, but have now requested that they be demoted to Preferente league status. Taking their place in div 3 will be Paterna, who lost to Pinoso in the play off final. Also promoted are Cullero and Torre Levante, whilst Orihuela make the drop from div 2b. These teams replace Catarroja, Denia, Crevillente,

Burriana and Gandia, who will all be playing their football in the Pref div, plus Elche Res, who won promotion to div 2b. Alzira looked all set to join Elche in div 2b, but they lost in the play off final, and will remain in div 3. Season ticket prices have been announced. For a main stand view, the cost will be 125 euros, whilst for general admission, the cost is only 100 euros. Entrance at the gate on match days will still cost 10 euros, which when you consider there are 19 league games on offer, makes the season ticket option a bargain. On Thur 18 Jul, the club will be organising a boat trip, complete with live music, from Torry harbour to Mar Menor and back. Tickets for this event can be purchased at the Torry Army office in San Luis, or by contacting Pat on 966 78 6352.
