BRITS AND THE
GAIN FOR SPAIN
Top academic applauds our gentle touch to over-development
EXCLUSIVE by Berta Chulvi
BRITS living in Spain got
a ringing endorsement
of their caring side in
the battle with the “real
barbarities” of relentless
development of the Costas.
The UK population in the country
was applauded for how it’s a
positive “force for change.”
Brits abroad, often seen as
colonists wanting to return to their
empire-building roots of Victorian
times, got the unexpected accolade
from a top Valencian academic.
Pedro
Ruiz,
professor
of
contemporary history at the
University of Valencia and its
former principal, paid tribute
to the UK’s ancestor merchants
who brought many “liberal ideas
and progressive methods to this
country.”
González Pons, ex-minister for the
Environment of the Generalitat
Valenciana,
affirmed that the
English have acted like ‘colonists’
but Ruiz said: “I would not call
them this. I believe that they act as
a force for change.”
He added that Brits had more
sensitivity to the environment at
a time when “real barbarities are
being committed and they react
against this.
“Besides,
they
come
from
countries where there is a greater
respect for the life of the others.”

Accident
Drink driver
kills clubbers
A scene of
carnage
occurred last weekend
at a Huesca discotheque,
after a driver drove into a
crowd of clubbers, killing
two and wounding another
seven, three of them
seriously.
The
incident,
which
occurred at 06.30hrs at
Manhattan disco in the
outskirts of the town,
caused chaos and hysteria
among nightclub revellers.
The driver, identified as
22-year-old Víctor Manuel
Gómez
Rivero,
tested
positive for alcohol with
0.70 mg/l; police revealed
they were also carrying
out drugs tests on the
man.
Police are now studying
CCTV footage of the
incident, which they hope
will help them identify
the exact cause of the
accident.

Payout for
blackout
Electricity
company
Fecsa-Endesa is to pay
between 60 and 300 euros
to customers who lost
power during Barcelona’s
historic
blackout
last
week.
The amount of money
customers will receive will
depend on the number of
hours they went without
power and the number of
residents in each property.

Canary Islands burn
Worst fires
in history
devastate
countryside
and homes
on islands
A. Elgar
President of the government, José Luis Rodríguez
Zapatero, flew to the
Canary Islands this week
in an emergency visit to
witness at first hand the
scale of devastation in
Gran Canaria, Tenerife
and La Gomera. More than
35,000 hectares of land
have been destroyed and
more than 12,000 people
were forced to flee their
homes.
Spain’s minister of the
environment,
Cristina
Narbona, announced that
more resources would be
sent to the area to help fire
fighters, stating that the
situation was “extremely
alarming”.
Winds of up to 70km an
hour were causing fires to
spread and complicating
the work of emergency
services, with some areas
burning for over 140
hours.
Paulino Rivero, president
of the Canary Islands,
has called the situation
“dramatic”, stating the
fires are some of the worst
in the Islands’ history.
FOREST FIRES: 80% of forest fires are intentionally started and a man has been arrested
In Gran Canaria, the
worst affected island, fire
concentrated around the
town of San Bartolomé
de Tirajana. Fire fighters
have been pulling out all
the stops to prevent fires
spreading to nearby Pico de
las Nieves and el Barranco
de SantaLucía. A fire that
had been brought under
control on Sunday night
in the Morro de Santiago
area, which affected 3,500
hectares of pine trees, reignited on Monday due to
strong winds.
In the town of Mogan,
more than 2,000 people
were evacuated when fire
swept across the hillside,
destroying
at
least
thirty houses. Strong
winds made the task of
extinguishing
flames
almost impossible for nine
helicopters and a plane
used in the operation.
The Guardia Civil closed

urged
tourists and residents not
to visit the summit of the
island.
In Tenerife, Rivero stated
that the worst fires were
in the towns of Ralejos,
Santiago del Teide, and
most worryingly in the
highland area of Icoo,
where there are many
houses.
By Sunday night, 14,000
hectares of land, mostly
pine forests, had been
destroyed and 3,700 people
had been evacuated as a
precaution. On Tuesday,
firemen
were
trying
to prevent fires from
spreading to the south of
the island, where two small
fires had been declared
active. More than 100
Guardia Civil joined fire
fighters in dousing flames
and controlling traffic.
Earlier in the week,
police arrested forestry
watchman, Juan Antonio
Navarro
Armas,
for
allegedly starting the fires
on Gran Canaria.
He told police he had set
fire to vegetation so that
authorities would extend
contracts for forestry
workers and improve the
island’s fire prevention
programme.
The Canary Islands’
government
announced
that it will be giving
economic aid to help
residents pay for damage
caused by the fires,
although
president
Paulino Rivero stated:
“Our first priority is to
extinguish the fires.”
In Spain, man causes
95% of forest fires, and
80% of fires are started
intentionally. In spite of
the statistics, only 2% of
those people are arrested,
and less than 1% are
condemned.

Police appeal to public
to hunt ETA members
Police release photos of six
dangerous ETA terrorists
A. Elgar
Police have appealed to
the public to help them
hunt down six dangerous
etarras or ETA members
by releasing their photos,
a tactic that has been
instrumental in the past
to locate them.
The photos of the
six most sought after
members of the group are
those of Ander Múgica
Andonegui, (top centre),
whose fingerprints were
found inside a taxi he
fled as it approached a
police checkpoint on the
N-340 near Torreblanca
(Castellón) on July 19;
Joseba Mikel Olza Puñal
(bottom left), who was
convicted for 15 months in
2002 for painting graffiti
threats against the PP
and the PSOE on walls
in Pamplona during the
summer of 2001; Eneko
Zarrabeitia Salterain (top
right) and Saioa Sánchez
Iturregui (bottom right)
are thought to be part
of a terror cell planning
attacks on public buildings
in Santander.
A third member of
the same cell, Aritz
Arginzoniz
Zubiaurre,
who
is
Iturregui’s
boyfriend, was arrested at
Santander coach station
on July 10; Aitzol Etxaburu
(top left) is believed to
have been involved in a
car bomb attack on the
Vicolozano
industrial
estate near Ávila on
September 24 last year
that damaged the offices
of the Imcodávila printing
company and Leire López
(bottom centre), one of
fifteen suspects charged
with belonging to or
collaborating with the
‘Donosti’ terror cell. A
warrant for her arrest
was issued by the High
Court last May.
Head of Spain’s police
and Guardia Civil, Joan
Mesquida, stated that
during ETA’s ceasefire, 90
arrests were made, with a
further 20 since then. He
stated: “Police pressure
has been at a maximum.
ETA: The police are asking for the public’s help to hunt down six ETA terrorists
All resources have been
utilised, and despite some
criticising the naivety
of the government, our
efforts have not fallen one
inch.”
He
also
praised
international police and
citizen collaboration in
helping
capture
ETA
members, which have led
to the arrests of etarras in
Canada and Mexico.
It has furthermore been
revealed that during ETA’s
ceasefire, the government
was considering proposals
to spend 300 million euros
over a ten-year period
on reinserting ex-ETA
members back into the
community, with each
earning up to 1,500 euros
a month.
There are currently 610
ETA members in Spanish
and French jails.
Aznar warns that Spain will Three million in
disintegrate and lose identity summer getaway
Ex-president of Spain
José María Aznar has
warned that Spain is in
danger of disintegrating,
comparing the country to
ex-Yugoslavia.
In an interview published
in Argentinean daily La
Nación, Aznar argued:
“The new statutes of
autonomy are causing
disintegration of the state
and a clear weakening of
Spanish national identity.”
He maintains that not ETA
but “national dissolution”
will be the dominant
theme in the next general
electoral campaign.
PSOE general secretary,
José Blanco has called the
ex-president “ignorant”
and “irresponsible” to
compare
the
present
situation in Spain with
that of the disintegration
of Yugoslavia after the
Balkans war.
On his internet blog,
Blanco refers to the
ex-head of Spain as “a
character who is more
and more dislikeable.”
For Blanco, comparing
nationalist demands in
Spain with Yugoslavia
AZNAR: “increasingly
dislikeable”
is a reflection “that only
an ignorant person can
make.”
An estimated three million
vehicles took to the roads
this week in Spain’s great
summer getaway, referred
to as operación salida.
The General Department
of Traffic (DGT) offered
safety
and
traffic
information to drivers to
facilitate journeys, while
8,350 traffic police were
drafted in to help and 250
police vehicles equipped
with radars were used to
control speeding vehicles.
The greatest volume of
traffic was registered on
Madrid exit roads towards
the Mediterranean coast,
particularly roads towards
Castilla-La
Mancha,
Comunitat
Valenciana,
Murcia and Andalucía.
It is estimated that a total
of 46 million car journeys
will be made during
August this year. Last
year, 250 people died in
road accidents in August,
while 325 were killed in
the same month in 2005.
The DGT advises anyone
intending to drive a long
distance to obtain traffic
information
prior
to
travelling.
Gabriel Cisneros, father of Spanish Constitution, dies
Gabriel Cisneros, one of
the fathers of the Spanish
Constitution, died last
Sunday aged 66. He had
been suffering from a long
illness.
Cisneros, the third vicepresident of Congress
and a Partido Popular
MP, was born in Zaragoza
in 1940.
Graduating
in
law
and elected MP by the
Democratic
Central
UCD party in the first
democratic elections in
1977, he, along with six
others, was responsible
for writing the Spanish
Constitution.
In 1979, Cisneros escaped
an ETA attempt to kidnap
him, which ended in a
violent struggle in which
he was shot in the stomach
and the left leg.
Cisneros received a special
tribute in June this year,
in a solemn act attended
by Don Juan Carlos and
Doña Sofía.
President
of
the
government,
José
Luis
Rodríguez
Zapatero,
expressed
his
condolences
to
Cisneros’ family, which
he extended “to all the
Partido Popular family”.
He
said:
“Cisneros
contributed
in
an
important
way
to
the
construction
of
Spain during its entire
democratic period.”

Weather
Droughts
more severe
last century
Droughts that occurred
in the 20th century in
Spain were worse than
the
current
drought,
according to a study.
Climatologist José Ángel
Núñez Mora has revealed
that the scarcity of water
at the beginning of the
last century was more
severe than the present
situation. During those
times, droughts commonly
lasted for four or five
years, an occurrence that
has not happened in Spain
since 1955.
In the last fifty years, the
most severe period of
drought was between 19931996, only a three-year
period.
Although the data refers
to climate observed in
Valencia, the author has
stated that many of the
droughts extended to
the rest of the Spanish
Mediterranean and to
other peninsula areas.
One of the driest periods
ever recorded in Spain
was between 1872-1879
when
Valencia
and
other places in the Med
registered their lowest
rainfall ever, causing
widespread devastation
of countryside.

Nursery

The
measure,
which
forms part of the “star”

COMUNITAT VALENCIANA
August 3 - August 9 2007
In the right Camps, unity
with the left on security
B.Chulvi&S.Walker
The Spanish government
has promised to look closely at a call by Francisco
Camps, president of the
Generalitat Valenciana, for
extra police.
The news came out of a
high-level meeting between
Camps and Interior Minister, Alfredo Pérez Rubacalba, who is the man in Zapatero’s government with
ultimate responsible in all
matters of security.
In order to tackle the
problem of security, both
central government and the
regional government of Valencia have agreed to the establishment in September
of a combined committee
presided over by Antonio
Camacho, the Secretary of
State for Security (Madrid)
and Serafín Castellano, the
Interior Minister for the
Valencian regional government.
This committee will look
at the security needs of this
autonomous region, which
has grown by a million inhabitants.
When he left the meeting
with the Minister, Francisco Camps announced,
without giving any exact
figures, an increase in the
CONTROVERSY:
Autonomous police force
There is growing controversy over the idea of creating an autonomous police force, an intention
that the PP has denied for many years now.
In the Statute of Autonomy, the basic law applied
to the Comunitat Valenciana’s regional government, the creation of an autonomous police force
is provided for, but only on a small scale and with
limited power.
Rubalcaba made it clear that he felt it was time to
“increase the force and, at the same time, look at
the responsibilities it has”.
According to the Minister, there are only 350 officers in the force, although it was set up with 500
in mind.
Camps told Rubalcaba that he felt that the Policía
Nacional and the Guardia Civil should continue
to have full power in matters of public security.
President Camps said that “just because we
haven’t got an autonomous police force does
not mean that we are not constantly striving for
greater levels of public security”.
IN HARMONY: Alfredo Rubacalba, left, with Francisco Camps
number of Policia Nacional
and Guardia Civil officers,
who “would have full authority in matters of public
security”.
After thanking Camps
for his official visit on
Tuesday, the Minister of
the Interior said his inten-
tion to study “the needs
of a community that had
changed so much”.
The Minister confirmed
that the committee would
be looking at three main
areas, which he summed
up as an “assigned police
force” that would be simi-
lar to an autonomous police force, an agreement
between regional and central governments to reach
a financial settlement with
regard to “improving the
network of Guardia Civil
HQs”, and the “co-ordination of 112” the emergency
telephone number that we
all call when our security is
threatened.
Camps was pleased at
how quickly Rubalcaba had
met him.
He said their conversation had focused on how
much the Comunitat had
grown, in view of the fact
that the last few years have
seen more than a million
new people come to the region.
This situation required
“a generalised study to predict changes in the medium
and long term,” he added.
Generalitat comes down hard President ‘to cut back salaries’
on council’s illegal-build ways to control government costs
The Valencian Regional
government is taking measures against one PP-controlled local council for granting illegal building licences
for a new development to
the powerful construction
company Marina d’Or.
The Environment Ministry has demanded that the
town council in Cabanes
(Castellón) revoke the licences it granted for the
construction of at least 500
houses in Torre la Sal, the
only untouched stretch of
the Castellón coastline, bordering the El Prat national
park.
In her motion, the director
general of town and country planning, Soledad Martínez, argues that Cabanes
has committed a “serious
offence” against Valencian
town planning law, and
therefore demands that the
licences granted to Marina
d’Or for the extension of
their current development
be revoked.
Despite the fact that the
month the town council
had to meet requirements
ran out on July 16, according to Esquerra Unida MP,
Carles Mulet, the PP has
not revoked the licences, so
the Generalitat will be taking legal action against the
council as laid down in its
initial motion.
The action came about originally in response to a complaint by a local resident
who reported the illegal li-
N
cences for 500 houses in the
area to the Generalitat.
Despite the resident’s letter and only days before the
elections, the PP issued licences for another 700 houses, licences that will have to
be revoked in exactly the
same way.
EU alarmed
The European Union has added its voice to
those alarmed by the PAI (Plan de Actuación
Integrada) or urban plan under development
by Marina d’Or in the Torre la Sal district of
Cabanes.
The EU has started proceedings against the
company for “extracting water and draining
the subsoil” of the protected El Prat natural
parkland in Cabanes.
The proceedings were started because of a complaint presented by Esquerra Unida after it was
discovered that building work had begun in the
Torre la Sal district of Cabanes with the drainage of an area adjoining the natural parkland.
Brussels is now adding its weight to the demands already being made by the Environment
Ministry to Cabanes town council to carry out
a “detailed” hydrogeological study covering
all the building work planned for the Torre la
Sal area and its possible effect on the protected
parkland alongside.
Milagrosa Martínez, President of the Cortes Valencianas and member of the PP,
has taken another bold step
in her crusade to control
costs within the autonomous parliament.
Martínez has proposed salary cuts for those on the
Cortes’s presiding committee and for the spokespersons of each parliamentary
group, in order to use the
money to cover payments
that should be made to
Council members.
Milagrosa Martínez’s annual salary is 124,578 euros,
considerably higher than
the 77,988 euros paid to the
president of the Generalitat.
Members of the presiding
committee of the Cortes
receive an annual salary
of 110,272 euros, a much
greater amount than that
paid to council members
who receive 66,435 euros
per annum.
Martínez’s proposal plans
to “rationalise spending”
within the institution, but
could not be approved this
time around because it had
not been included on the
official order of the day. It
will be looked at again in
September and, if thought
appropriate, will be approved then.
The socialists proposed
that this salary comparison be continued across the
board, with all MPs being
paid the same as secretaries within the autonomous
parliament.
Martínez is convinced
that by lowering salaries
it would be possible to
achieve “one of her main
objectives” as President
of the Cortes Valencianas,
namely “spending controls
as a result of efficient and
precise economic management, compatible with the
interests of people in Valencia”. The president of
the Diputación de Valencia, the PP’s Alfons Rus,
also decided to reduce his
salary because, he said, it
did not seem right for him
to be earning more than the
President of the Council.
In sharp contrast, the man
in charge of the Castellón
wing of the government,
Carlos Fabra, did completely the opposite last week
– he raised his own salary
so that he now earns more
than the President of the
Central Government.
What about her
advisers?
The socialist group
within the Cortes Valencianas applauded the
proposals made by their
president, but wanted
to know why the president’s advisers are not
included in the plan,
seeing as their salaries
are even higher than
the MPs who report to
the House. The spokesperson for the socialist
group in the Cortes,
Ángel Luna, complained
that “the real savings
could be made by finding
out why, for example,
Milagrosa Martínez’s
11 advisers have higher
salaries than the rest of
the MPs”.

Bioparc replaces zoo
Valencia Zoo finally closed
its doors to the public on
Tuesday – after 42 years.
The resident animals
will now have to wait until
later in the year before going on show again in their
new, 21st century home
that the town hall is calling
Bioparc.
The new setting is in
Valencia’s Parque de Cabecera in the west of the
city and can be found at the
former headwaters of the
river Turia.
The Bioparc is already
up and running and new
species have started arriving from other European
zoos, but it will not open its
doors to the public until November.
The Bioparc concept
is completely different to
that of a zoo, with animals
housed in areas designed
to replicate their natural
habitats as far as possible,
rather than in cages.
Valencia’s Bioparc project, drawn up by the town
hall, but to be run by a private company, expects to
house some 4,000 animals
representing 250 African
species.
The park will eventually
cover 10 hectares, although
only eight are going to be
built for now. The remaining two will be used to extend the park in order to
make room for animals from
Asia and South America.
Nostalgia

in the middle of the city centre, has now said goodbye to
the public and its 60 mam-

they are moved to the new

should be in November, all

THANKS FOR THE MEMORY: Saying goodbye
ing that the new zoo will be

a show of nostalgia to say
goodbye to the old zoo. By
means of a thank you to its
faithful public, the Viveros
Zoo (which gets its name
from the Jardines de Viveros that surround it) held
an open day for everyone
who wanted to come and
enjoy the zoo for free one
last time.
Where the zoo currently
stands, a new museum will
open, housing a collection of invertebrates donated by Ignacio Docavo,
the naturalist who has
been the zoo’s curator for
42 years. Nature lovers,
and especially those with
a particular interest in invertebrates, will be able
to go on enjoying the old
Viveros zoo as it is turned

One museum that will be remaining open

The museum, in the heart of Valencia, is home

considered to be Europe’s best collection of South
American palaeontology.
In the 19th century, these fossils were, in actual
fact, the basis for the first ever palaeontology
museum in continental Europe.
27,000 hit by blackouts as power cuts
wreak havoc in Valencia’s dark day
Power cuts brought Valencia to a standstill on Tuesday.
A faulty transformer in the
Fuente de San Luis electricity substation, owned by
Iberdrola, left some 25,000
people without electricity
for several hours.
Both the Avenida Peris y
Valero and Ausiàs March,
as well as a number of
streets in the Russafa district, were affected by the
power cuts, which came
and went intermittently between 12.30pm and 2pm
As well as the faulty transformer, one of the underground medium voltage cables also went down leaving
2,000 residents in Alboraia
and Primado Reig streets
without power for more
than an hour.
Motorists were also affected as traffic lights stopped
working in Gran Via de
Germanias, Antic Regne
de València and Peris y
Valero.
The power cuts left several
people trapped in lifts and
they eventually had to be
rescued by the fire service.
The central fire station in
Avenida La Plata was then
itself a victim of the power
cuts.
The fault in the Fuente de
San Luis district set off a
series of power cuts starting at 12.35pm, causing
blackouts lasting over an
hour and a half.
During this time, Iberdrola
managed to repair the fault
from the transformer itself
and restore power to those
without it.
However, people in Ausiàs
March had to put up with
three
more
10-minute
blackouts in the afternoon,
which added to the misery
they’d suffered during the
morning.
Iberdrola’s customer service department kept altering the information it gave
out to during the morning’s
blackouts, much to the chagrin of its customers, who
saw their own power cuts
appearing and disappearing from the company’s answerphone message.
“I’ve just called them and
there’s nothing at all about
my power cut, but I’m still
here without any electricity and without the land-
LEFT IN THE DARK: Motorists in Valencia
line”,
complained
one
resident of Calle Ausiàs
March.
The thousands of people liv-
ing on this street had to put
up with one power cut after
another. Sources at Iberdrola blamed Tuesday’s prob-
lems on “general” faults.
“Sometimes we get faults”,
the company said, by way
of explaining the faulty
transformer at the Fuente
de San Luis substation.
Because of faults in Iberdrola’s equipment, traffic
lights and businesses were
brought to a halt.
The junctions along Avenida Peris y Valero and some
in the Russafa district of
the city added more problems to those already being
experienced as a result of
the road closures and diversions already in operation
because of work being done
on the metro’s T2 line.
Despite the problems, the
local police in Valencia
were not called out to a single traffic accident.
In another incident, a faulty
underground medium voltage line caused a power
cut for some 1,700 people in
the L’Albufereta district of
Alicante beach on Sunday
night.
According to an Iberdrola
spokesperson, the blackout
started at 11pm and power
was not restored for nearly
two hours.

Jobs
Town hall to
take on 220
Valencia Town Hall has announced that it will be taking on 220 new staff in the
autumn.
A budget of 3,024,638 euros
has been set aside by the
town hall for these new employees via the Emcorp and
Salario Joven programmes.
Ma Jesús Puchalt, regional
Minister for Employment,
said: “The aim of these
programmes is to promote
employment among social
groups that often have difficulties breaking into the
employment market, for example women, young people
with very little work experience, those with disabilities,
the long-term unemployed
or people at risk of being ostracised”.
Through the Salario Joven
programme, 80 unemployed
young people under the age
of 30 will be taken on to carry out jobs of general and
social interest.
Through the Emcorp programme, 140 jobs will be created in 19 different projects.
These include the improvement of the Alquería de
Ricós area, the project to
give the municipal markets
a facelift, the project to improve the quality of our
environment, the project
to support shelters for the
homeless, painting for those
with disabilities and the
improvement of green belt
areas.

Cova Foradà remains
excite archeologists
Human and animal bones,
as well as bone utensils open
new avenues for research
Samantha Kett and
Cornelia Muller
New excavations in the
Cova Foradà de Oliva have
revealed many new finds,
which proved that the cave
was inhabited before 50,000
years BC. The latest finds
include human bones from
before 30,000 AD., a child’s
skull, as well as animal
bones, hunting utensils,
other practical utensils
and even pieces of jewellery from between 8,000 and
40,000 AD.
The team of archeologists hope to find answers
to the disappearing of the
Neanderthal and the appearance of the Sapiens
Sapiens, which coincided
with the transition from
the Medium to the Superior
Palaeolithic.
The animal bones main-
ly belonged to the tropical
fauna: turtles, elephants,
rhinoceros, panthers, lions, lynxes, hyenas, and
there was even the molar
of a hippopotamus. The archeologists could also confirm that deer, bulls, horses
and goats came down to
the cave and the coastal
area from the surrounding
mountains. With the beginning of the Upper Palaeolithic the large animals,
such as elephants, rhinoceruses and panthers disappeared and were replaced
by smaller species, such as
deer, bears, goats, wolves
and foxes. This means that
it always must have been
easy for the local inhabitants to hunt and find suffficient food.
The archeologists described the area between
the river Bullent and the
marshes between Oliva and

Council worker arrested for
false residence card racket
Guardia Civil officers are
questioning a Gandia council employee over forged
residence cards.
Elvira M. is thought to be
the ringleader of a racket
handing out false documentation allowing non-EU immigrants to live in Spain.
She is said to have registered some 2,500 foreigners on the padrón, many

According to the Guardia

immigrants without visas
to remain in Spain.
Yet she denies that her boyfriend, a Pakistani national

La Safor villages
have quadrupled
La Safor’s population has
grown immensely in the
last decade.
Almost 171,000 people now
live in the district that stretches from Oliva to Tavernes.
A censorship, taking figures
from 2006, says these two
towns and the capital, Gandia, have seen the largest
increases in headcount.
Gandia has 80,000 people registered, whereas Oliva has
27,000 and Tavernes 18,000.
However, this does not take
into account the number
of people who live in these areas but have failed to
register their presence on
the padrón, or local census,
which is a legal requirement and a civic duty.
In the meantime, since the
end of 1995, certain small
villages have multiplied
by up to four times – such
as Guardamar de la Safor,
which has risen from 62 to
300 inhabitants.
Beniflà has gone up 121 per
cent, from 141 residents to
313, whilst Daimús has almost doubled in headcount
and is now home to nearly
2,700 people.
Some smaller villages,

Teulada’s Red Cross volunteers took just 16 minutes to
rescue a diver in trouble off
Moraira’s Platgetes beach
last Thursday.
A lifeboat had attempted
to rescue the swimmer
when he fell into difficulties, but crashed into the
rocks causing a fuel leak
from the engine.
Losing its bearings, the
boat then ran into the man,
who became injured.
Three Red Cross staff
members set off at around
10.30 hrs in a boat after being alerted by the
coastguard workers at the
L’Andragó cove.
They brought the injured
diver in to shore together
with the lifeboat, which
was transferred to Moraira’s yacht club.
An ambulance was waiting for the victim on the
beach.
This rescue was a simulation exercise to train Red
Cross volunteers to act in
an emergency, and they
were praised for their lightning-quick response.
Every summer sees a
phenomenal number of accidents and deaths off the

SAFETY: Red Cross huts are located on most of the main beaches in Moraira
the Alicante province so
far this summer, five were
swimming in the sea in the
early morning before lifeguards started their shifts.
Teulada town council has
announced that bathers
will be fined between 750
and 3,000 euros for failing
to heed warning signs, such
as red flags.
They will also face heavy
penalties for starting fires

banned from all beaches in
the region throughout the
summer.
Local authorities will
also levy hefty fines on travelling sales people who operate on the beach.
Arsonists start forest fires in
Las Marinas
Two hectares of farmland
were wiped out in the Las
Marinas area of Dénia on
Friday in what was believed
to be an arson attack.
The fire, which occurred on
the right-hand side of the
road heading into the town
opposite the Les Fonts complex, started in two places
leading fire-fighters to believe it was deliberate.
Wiping out orange groves
and abandoned wasteland,
the flames broke out at
around 16.00 hrs but were extinguished relatively quickly
as the fire brigade was still
working on the aftermath of
a fire that started in the same
place the day before.
Fortunately, however, nobody
was hurt and no damage to
property was recorded.
Despite this, seven people became trapped in their homes
in the Almadrava area of
Els Poblets and have called
for greater protection from
emergency services, who
were forced to rescue the affected householders.
Emergency services say the
Marina Alta has suffered a
‘black week’ as blazes were
also started in Gata, the
Orba-Benidoleig border, and
the Coll de Rates area of Parcent, let alone the disastrous
conflagration further afield
in Tenerife that has caused
11,000 people to be evacuated
from their homes.
All of the Marina Alta blazes
took place on abandoned
stretches of farmland, which
has caused more concern
over the dangers posed by
untended areas, left to lie fallow or simply unmaintained
by their owners. Without
clearing natural debris from
foliage each year, there is often a risk of fire.

The occupants of the damaged vehicle, an entire family, needed hospital treatment.
One woman broke her neck
and suffered total amnesia.
She says she has no recollection of the crash.
However, the driver’s father has pleaded with the
victims to withdraw their
statement to the police.
He says the injured family
should ‘bear in mind’ that
his son ‘was also injured’.
The motorist who caused
the accident sustained a

Yet the family, all Spanish

CLEANING VESSEL: Ready to retrieve spillage
1984 - 2004
A ferry bound for Ibiza suffered a crash on Wednesday
night, raising fears about
the safety of the fleet.
On July 11, the ship Don
Pedro, part of the Iscomar
line, collided with the island of Daus en route from
Valencia to Ibiza and sunk
beneath the waves with 150
tonnes of fuel on board.
Technicians have worked
constantly since then to extract the spillage from the
waters using specialist divers and cleaning vessels.
This week, the Carmen del
Mar ferry, also one of the
Iscomar fleet and based in
Dénia, crashed into one of
the lighted buoys installed
to guide ships to their destination at night.
The accident happened in
the Es Freus strait between
Ibiza and Formentera, although the company has
not confirmed whether there were any passengers on
board at the time.
Ibiza and Formentera’s naval division has ordered the
Carmen del Mar to be taken
off the water and analysed
to ascertain the cause of
the collision, even though
it appears that there was no
threat to nor loss of life.
A spokesperson from Iscomar says the organisation
is
specifically
worried
about passenger safety and
the risk of causing sea pollution if an accident mirroring that of the Don Pedro were to occur again.

It is planned to build a 1,600

Rubbish area reeks
from human waste
After complaints to the
Mayoress, a local resident is
no nearer to solving hazard
Samantha Kett
A blind retired expat living
in Dénia has tried to protest
about the deplorable state
of public land near to his
residence, but the Mayoress has done little to help.
Edwin Lewis moved to his
apartment block in Dénia
in 2000, when he claims
the area was well-cared for
and attractive to residents.
Since then he has seen it
decline into a filthy untended mess that has caused a
public health hazard. The
area in front of his block
has been home to a succession of problems. Firstly,
the natural bamboo was
culled to clear the area for
parking, resulting in a dust-
bowl that coats his terrace
and apartment with layers of dirt. The circus uses
the area as its regular site,
flushing sewage water from
people and animals onto
the land, and leaving heaps
of manure. After the circus
leaves, huge refrigerated
container lorries occupy
the site, and lorry drivers
urinate and defecate on
the land. The lorries are
noisy, running generators
at night, and fumes as they
start up in the morning, but
the police have not moved
them on as the parking is
in an ideal situation for the
lorries to move into traffic
headed to the interior.
Mr Lewis has convinced
the president of the block,
Alfred Norman to complain
DUMPING GROUND: An area of Dénia has become a public health risk
to the Town Hall, which
resulted in a bulldozer
dragging the heap of rubbish and manure into one
area and then leaving it to
deteriorate in the heat. Mr
Norman agreed that he has
tried to resolve the issues
without success.
“Surely I have the right
to a quiet enjoyment of my
property, rather than being
forced to live in a tip. But I
suppose one blind man just
isn’t enough of a protest,”
commented Mr Lewis, with
some rancour.
He is still seeking a response from the local government, since the area in
which he lives is known as
the ‘gateway to Dénia’ and
he feels it reflects badly on
the town as a whole.
Tourists encouraged to go

Caves in the Marina Alta
are being given a huge
push as tourist attractions.
The Association of Spanish Tourist Caves (ACTE)

those who are less keen
on spending their summer holidays topping up
their tans on Costa Blanca
beaches.

Calaveres in Benidoleig
and the Cova de l’Atzúvia

are the three main ones
in the Alicante province
which are being advertised
as popular attractions, although the ACTE has also
visited the Cuevas de Don
Juan in Jalance (Valle de
Ayora-Cofrentes, Valencia
province).
The caves in Benidoleig
date back to the mid and
late Paleolithic eras and
valuable
archaeological
findings have been discovered inside them.
Information
published
in four languages and a
touch-screen display giv-
ing details of the caves
and the village itself are
now available at the entrance to Les Calaveres.
The Coves del Rull were
discovered by a man out
hunting in the early 20th
century. A rabbit disappeared down a hole and
his dog followed, hence
the hunter, known in the
village as El Rull, followed
him, discovering as he did
so a million-year-old cave.
Guided tours of these
fascinating underground
rock formations run hourly.
Cancer hospital plans are
temporarily called off
A long-anticipated cancer
hospital in Benissa has
been shelved indefinitely,
local authorities confirm.
The proposal for a specialist oncology centre in the
coastal town, put forward
by the Fundación Europea
contra el Cáncer (FECC)
was fraught with problems,
alleges mayor Juan Bautista Roselló (PP). He claims
that the plot put aside for
the hospital in the Pla de
Carrals area of town is
common land. Roselló reveals handing over the land
for building is outside the
council’s jurisdiction, and
it is alleged that some of
the promoter’s activities
could be unlawful.
FECC spokesman Javier
Huerta, also the promoter
accuses the mayor of ‘unbridled political ambition’.
Yet a source from Levante
Hospital, who Huerta had
chosen to manage the cancer centre, claims he became ‘suspicious’ when
Huerta proposed that a
third company should manage the equipment supply
for the new centre. Compa-
ny representative Sr Gómez
says Hospital de Levante
has experience in equipping
hospitals and owns a cancer
treatment centre in Benidorm.
Gómez says his firm then
discovered that Huerta did
not figure on the registrar of
companies’ records.
At this point, Hospital de
Levante severed its commercial ties with Huerta.
Benissa’s mayor, however,
stresses that he plans to build
an oncology unit “as long as
any plans for it respect all legal requirements.”
Tourists and residents in
Benissa have been without electricity for up to 12
hours last week.
From Tuesday onwards,
those living in the Montemar, Los Almendros and
part of the Benimarco
urbanisations have complained of power cuts lasting a day at a time.
Electricity board Iberdrola
says these are due to maintenance works being carried out on the network.
People in Benissa say they
do not receive any warning
before their supply goes
off, and at the height of the
summer this situation is
extremely inconvenient.
This is when the population grows considerably
due to second-home owners
travelling to Benissa for
their holidays.
They say Iberdrola ‘has the
rest of the year to carry out
maintenance works’, and
some of them have complained to both the electricity board and the council.
Pressure has been put on
the household insurers of
those affected, and the companies have responded by
clubbing together to put a
temporary generator in the
town.
Last Friday, electricity was
off between 08.00 and 18.00
hrs, and on Saturday, from
08.00 to 22.00 hrs.
Cooking, washing clothes
and keeping food and drink
fresh is impossible without electricity and more
necessary than ever in the

New bus station

According to the town’s technical experts, the hotel next

two additional floors which total 2.000m2. The constructor actually presented a different plan to that of the
winning project of 2001, in addition to the modifications
made to the initial project approved in March 2003. The
solution adopted by the consistory to legalise the project
did not take into consideration a penalisation for the infringement in town planning. Although the consistory
withdrew the permissions of the two floors “he built because he wanted to” according to the spokesman for PP,
Antonio Pérez. The PP diverted questions relating to
the excess build area, by decreasing other areas in size
like the parking area, so that the overall area did not supercede the overall square metres – even though there
were two additional floors. The opposition allowed the
developer to construct even though it did not follow the
initial project, knowing that it could lead to an adjudication and that there was no full building license.

Battle between mayor and Enrique Ortiz
According to sources, the opening of the
bus station (not including the shopping
centre or the hotel) will take place without
the consent of Enrique Ortiz. It seems that
the constructor and the investors urgently
want the entire infrastructure in place in
order to begin to profit from the development. Ortiz had an understanding with
the first councillor, Vicente Pérez Devesa,
but he recently died and the relationship
with the new councillor Pérez Fenoll is
proving more difficult. The current mayor
confirmed, after the recent elections, that
he will abide by the law in accordance
with the wishes of the developer. Ortiz announced that prior to Easter a grand opening party would take place with Niña Pastori booked, but this finally was cancelled
due to bad weather and the fact that the
installations were not yet open.
At the beginning of May, in the middle
of the controversy, the Director of Public
Prosecution for the Province of Alicante,
José Antonio Romero, wrote a letter to the
Town Hall Secretary of Benidorm, requesting information relating to the irregularities in Town Planning for the Bus Station.
The required date for a reply by the Registry Office according to the Director of
Public Prosecution for Alicante was April
3, but this did not take place until May 4.
Romero asked the Town Hall secretary to

Putting the big Bloc on
‘concrete jungle’ plans
Extraordinary meeting
witnesses extraordinary
voting pattern in bid to halt
Ortexa’s 3,500 new homes
Sergi Castillo and
Samantha Kett
Plans to build 3,500 homes
have met with fierce opposition in Orxeta.
This week the town hall
witnessed an extraordinary meeting at the request
of nationalist party El
Bloc who wants to see the
project, approved on April
4, scrapped.
Yet their motion to bin
the plans only received
three votes, one of which
came from right-wing PP
party’s number two, Alejandro Llorens. However,
PP spokesman Miguel Ángel Lloret abstained.
Lloret suggested alternative plans but given that it
was an extraordinary meeting, these fell on deaf ears.
His argument was that
the socialist party, the
PSPV, who is in office until
2011 and are keen to push
the plans ahead, obtained
leadership without a majority vote.
Lloret claims there is
no consensus and that the
plans were approved too
quickly for everyone to be
able to put their point of
view forward.
Despite this, mayor Vicente Llinares insists he has
always shown ‘respect’ for
other councillors’ decisions
concerning the planned
concrete jungle and that he
is ‘open to modifications’.
The council meeting was
attended by the promoters,
residents of Orxeta and several Guardia Civil officers.
Llinares threatened to
evacuate the room if the situation became out of hand,
but those present remained
relatively calm.
N
CALM BEFORE STORM: On the streets of Orxeta
From 700 to 7,000 inhabitants
The new town plan, or PGOU, would mean the population multiplies tenfold if proposals to build 3,500
homes and a golf course go ahead.
Socialist party PSPV-PSOE, the brains behind the
project, won the May 27 elections but lost the majority that it enjoyed in the last term of office. At present, the party has three councillors whilst the PP has
two and nationalist party El Bloc has another two.
These latter parties, which effectively form the majority, are against the building plans and fully in
support of the pressure group formed by residents,
Horta d’Orxeta.
In fact, secretary-general of the PSOE for the Marina Baixa, Jaime Llinares, has blocked the plans
on a number of occasions and has announced that
legal action will be taken against those who are
pushing it forward.
Socialists were forced to introduce modifications to
the plan, but these were not enough to convince either the PP or the left-wing members of the district
council to vote in favour.
Llinares explained at the time that of the 25 million
square metres set aside for building, only two million would be reclassified as building land of which
700,000 were for the golf course and only 30 per cent
of the land would be constructed upon.
The original plans proposed the construction of
4,721 houses but 1,200 were to be left for the final
phase, leaving 3,511.
Orxeta’s population would have risen to an estimated 10,003 from 700, yet even with the reduced version
the headcount is expected to soar to 7,070.
‘Beach image comes before forest
fires’ in blast on tourism waste
Not enough equipment is
on hand to deal with forest
fires in the Marina Baixa,
Benidorm local authorities
have warned.
They say public money is
being invested in improving the image of the popular tourist magnet’s beaches instead.
This became apparent last
Wednesday when a blaze
wiped out three hectares
of scrubland in Finestrat,
close to the boundaries of
Benidorm.
Socialist councillor Conrado Hernández criticised the
fact that the fire brigade’s
all-terrain vehicle, allowing it to access mountainous areas, had broken down
and officers should have
used the one designated for
beach rescue operations.
He also complained that
heavy investments had
been made by the council in

Hernández says Benidorm
is ‘only concerned about

‘basics like being able to
reach and extinguish forest
fires’.
He continued that in any case,
the spotlights do not work on
windy days or at night.
José Bañuls, councilor for
traffic and public safety
of the PP, insisted that the
fire was not within the municipal boundaries of the
town and the police ‘got as
near to the fire as they
could’.
“We worked to 100 per
cent of our ability,” insists
Bañuls.
“If it had been necessary
we would have put the other 4x4 vehicle into use because in emergency cases
all means can be used.”
Bañuls also defended the
decision to install spotlights, because it was this
that alerted the firemen of
the fire and permitted their
rapid action.

“La Nit de L’Albà”
set to be Elche’s
most spectacular
Fireworks to light sky for 45
minutes
Esperanza Blanc
and Jade Holden
Every August 13th, the people of Elche dedicate 45
minutes to sending up fireworks, known as palmeras,
into the sky from all points
of the city. One palmera that
illuminates the sky of Elche
and leaves tourists and
strangers open mouthed is
the Virgin palmera which
is launched from the Saint
Mary basilica at midnight.
The mayor, Alejandro Soler,
has maintained a good relationship with the director
of “Ferrández Pyrotechnics” where the palmera of
the Virgin is ordered, to finalise the details from this
year’s spectacular Nit de
L’Albà.
The amount of palmera
fireworks launched from
apartment blocks and public spaces of the city will
see a 5% increase at La Nit
de L’Albà 2007, reaching 370
palmeras – 18 more than
last year. Also illuminating
the Elche sky this year will
be more than 9,000 boxes of
rockets and a mixture of
other pyrotechnics including over 1,000 bangers and
whistling fireworks. The
councillor of fiestas, Blanca González, assured that
“they are going to launch
more palmeras than last
year, and in addition they
are going to expand over
other districts so that they
can be launched from other
places.” Every year, the
palmeras are launched in
a coordinated manner and
will follow a firing rhythm
with the intention of keeping the sky permanently
illuminated with light and
colour for 45 minutes, from
11.15pm to midnight. This
year’s firing points have
been arranged in the footbridge of the Mercado, the
footbridge Avelino Rubio,
the bridge of Altamira, the
diagonal of the palace, the
Paseo de la Estación, the
Avenida de la Universidad
and the railway bridge.
At midnight the lights of
the city will be turned off
and the palmera of the Virgin will be launched from
the basilica of Saint Mary.
Onlookers will be treated
to a pure white palmera
created exclusively for the
Elche town hall by Fernández Pyrotechnics and made
up of over 3,000 rockets.
This grand palmera completely illuminates the sky
of the city of Elche for a
few seconds, reaching a
height of 300 metres and
spreading over a diameter
of 600 metres. The fiestas
continue with the ringing
of the church bells and the

the Headquarters of the
Madrid Police which resulted in 14 detainees from six
house searches.
After the detentions in Madrid, came further detentions

Green light for new
desalination plant
The court does not envisage

Alicia Negre and
Cornelia Muller
The desalination plant in
Torrevieja, which will be
one of the most productive
and extensive ones on the
continent, can now be built
after several ecological attacks failed, but more importantly after the authorisation of the Constitutional
Court was given last week.
According to the court,
there are no reasons why
the desalination plant cannot be built. It will provide
urgently
needed
water
to the farmers irrigating
alongside the canal Tajo-Segura. The High Court claims
that the plant will not have
a detrimental effect on the
environment, and therefore
a cancellation of the project
cannot be in anybody’s interest as it supplies the area
with fresh water. It said
that the desalination plant
is crucial to confront the
water deficit of the river Segura in recent years.
With its decision, the
court refers to one of the
most controversial issues
of the last months. It was
said that due to its location
the plant might cause severe damage to the Natural
Parks of Las Lagunas and
La Mata. However, according to the court, the desalination plant will not cause
any danger whatsoever.

Now, the Constitutional
Court has pointed out that
the Valencian laws allow
certain parts of the infrastructure to be placed close
to a natural park if ‘there is
no other preferrable place
to build it’. The Court adds
that at present the sewage
plant of the hospital is virtually on the perimeter of
the natural park.
Another accusation made
by the Valencian Government, which the Constitutional Court dismantles,
is the deposit of the brine.
The Generalitat stressed
that this waste could seriously damage the Cabo
Roig, which is a ‘LIC’, a
place of communal interest, and a marine reserve
with protected areas of
Neptune grass.
The High Court, backed
by the Declaration of Environmental Impact said that
the Neptune grass meadows are at a sufficient distance of 500 metres and will
therefore not be damaged.
It is, however, planned to
put a series of protective
measures in place to avoid
any damage of the marine
environment.
JOAN IGNASI PLA: They rather gain votes than water

”The constitutional court is siding with the PP”
Joan Ignasi Pla, the current secretary of

this resolution is based on the strategy of
the Partido Popular in their war for water

the PP prefer a drought, if it helps them to
win the elections.
However, the Constitutional Court is the

court had to intervene to stop the politicians from boycotting the investment of
the Spanish government for the desperately needed water supply in the Comunitat Valenciana.

sent to prison after gas leak in Orihuela
killing her baby
Last week a 22-year-old
Spanish woman was arrested for the alleged murder
of her new born baby. She
had gone to hospital in her
home town Torrevieja because she felt severe pain in
her lower abdomen. After
a medical examination the
doctors diagnosed that she
must have just given birth
to a child as the placenta
was still inside her womb.
The young woman claimed
that she was 12 weeks pregnant and far from giving
birth, although this figure
did not coincide with the
tests of the doctors, who
calculated that she must
have been in her 40th week
of pregnancy.
Faced with this situation
the medical staff contacted
the Guardia Civil who in
turn contacted the parents
of the young woman. They
said that they did not know
anything about the pregnancy or even that their
daughter had given birth.
The Guardia Civil officers
inspected the young woman’s home and found the
dead body of the child hidden in a plastic bag under
her bed.
She had to spend several
days in hospital to recuperate, although she was under
police arrest. Last Wednesday, she had to make her
statement at court in Torrevieja. The judge heard her
statement, plus statements
of several family members
and friends and her boyfriend, who supposedly is
the father of the child. At
the end she was given a
prison sentence which she
is now appealing against.
Due to a gas leak the centre
of Orihuela around the plaza de San Sebastián and the
surrounding bars, shops
and houses had to be evacuated. At 16.30 hours machinery that is used for the
remodeling of the square
hit a gas pipe. Thanks to
the afternoon heat, there
were hardly any people on
the square and the police
could easily cordon off the
square and evacuate the
small number of about 50
residents and the passersby. The square was closed
for an hour and a half. The
residents were concerned
about the long duration of
the leak and the amount
of gas that must have escaped into the air. Even the
fire brigade did not know
where to cut the gas supply. A neighbour said: “The
way the gas kept leaking we
thought it was dangerous
and outrageous that nobody
knew how to stop the leaking gas”.
The head of the maintenance of Repsol Butano had
to come to the site as he was
the only person who knew
where to cut the gas supply.
By then the gas could be
smelled as far as the Glorieta Gabriel Miró.
“We need to have an action
plan to be able to act quickly in emergency situations.
We have asked the town hall
for it on several occasions”,

This week, the town of
Torrevieja saw its most important musical event of
N
the year: the International
Festival of the Habaneras.
A total of 24 choirs from
Europe, America and Asia
participated in the 53rd edition of this famous music
festival.
Beautiful sounds
Last Monday was the highlight of this year’s festival,
which for the first time could be followed worldwide over
the website of the municipal sponsor of the Habaneras,
to hear the songs and music with Cuban rhythms that
were brought to Spain and became popular here as dance
music.
The presentation of Las Eras de la Sal was not the only
highlight. This year the town had organised a programme of concerts in the pedestrianised streets in the
centre of town.
The cultural exchange and the presence of prominent
choirs from many countries made the festival special;
they came from as far away as Beijing, Romania, Serbia
or Puerto Rico. They all had astounding presentations
and the audience could enjoy their voices and choreography.
In the closing celebration last Sunday, the choir of the
University of Valencia conducted by Constantino Martínez Orts won the first prize of this year’s International
Habaneras Festival in Torrevieja; it also won the audience prize. For the first time in eleven years a Spanish
choir won the prize, as in recent years it has always gone
to a foreign choir.
The second prize went to the Chamber Choir “Cantantes” from Belgrade in Serbia and the third prize to the
Student Choir of the University of Beijing. The Francisco Vallejos prize for the best interpretation of a popular
habanera went to the choir Sol Oriens from Debrecen in
Hungary for the habanera “Blanco Velero” by María del
Carmen Díaz and Juan Hernando Sanz.
The choir of the University of Puerto Rico, conducted
by Carmen Acevedo, won the first prize for polyphony
awarded with 9,000 euros. Polyphony denotes a choir of
two or more independent melodic voices. The Chamber
Choir from Pécs in Hungary won the second prize. The
prize for the best regional presentation went to the choir
of the University of Puerto Rico for their interpretation
of “Bomba e’” by Cucco Peña.
The new councillor for Infrastructure and Transport of
the Generalitat Valenciana, Mario Flores and the mayor of Torrevieja, Pedro Hernández Mateo, awarded the
prizes. The Spanish TV channel Antena 3 will broadcast
the ceremony on Sunday, August 5 at 22.30 hours, although Antena 3 will also transmit it internationally on
the same day at 21.30 hours, Mexican time, for the United
States and America.
The president of the Generalitat Valenciana, Francisco Camps, attended the
celebration of the Habaneras and the Polyphony of
Torrevieja personally.
During the concerts he
announced that he would
like to include this event
in the cultural programme
of the next America’s Cup.
Camps could not, however,
be present at the award ceremony.
The president of the
parliament, the Cortes Va-

for Culture, Trinidad Miró,
came to see the ceremony
that was led by the town

Head of Fuensanta processions, Joaquín Vidal Monerri, had finished organising the parade of the Virgin

which will take a further

The parade will now pass

The Ayuntamiento of Murcia has issued a stiff warning to families considering abandoning their pets
as they head off on summer
holidays.
Incredible as it may seem,
some people just dump
their dogs in the street or
the countryside when the
time comes to depart on vacation. Many holiday rental properties that are favourites with families won’t
allow pets and they are
banned from most beaches
in Spain. With holidays
that can extend over a long
period, the family pet that
has provided such comfort
throughout the rest of the
year becomes a problem.
The Murcia Town Hall says
it won’t stand for this and it
has announced that it will
be imposing fines ranging
from 1,500€ up to 3,000€
on anyone who is found to
have abandoned a family
pet. There is no excuse for
such hard-hearted behaviour, says the Town Hall as it
operates a modern animal
shelter, the Centro de Zoonosis.
This Centre will
accept, without charge, any
animal that is no longer
wanted. It will even go to
homes and pick up the animal free of charge.

blem is real – as statistics
show that last year the Centre admitted an average of
318 unwanted dogs every
month. In July, the figure
shot up to 425 dogs. Official
data indicates that about 40
percent of dog owners who
want to get rid of their pets
abandon them in the street
or out in the countryside
and drive off. The dogs then
often die.
Some are taken to animal
shelters, including the many
supported by foreign residents. Some smart people
wanting to dump their pets
have worked out that it is a
good idea to abandon them
outside the homes of foreigners.
The Murcia Town Hall
says it won’t hesitate to use
law to take action against
people who abandon their
pets. The official animal
shelter does all it can to
find adoptive home for
its animals and between
January and May this year
succeeded in arranging 272
adoptions. However, many
other animals were not so

Brown meets Bush
for first official visit
Brown will maintain good
relations with US, but not as
closely as Blair
Alex Elgar
President of the United
States, George Bush, received Gordon Brown last
weekend at his mountain retreat Camp David in Maryland, in what was Brown’s
first official meeting with
Bush since he assumed the
role of British Prime Minister in June.
The meeting served to
reinforce the “new special
relationship” between both
countries, with the two
leaders discussing Iraq,
Iran’s nuclear programme,
the genocide in the Sudanese region of Darfur and
the fight against terrorism,
amongst other issues. They
stated: “We will be strengthening relations in the next
few years to face the new
challenges of this generation, among those, terrorism.”
Before leaving for the US,
the British PM insisted he
had always been an “Atlanticist and a great admirer
of the American spirit, enterprise and national purpose…Winston
Churchill
spoke of what he called ‘the
joint inheritance’ of our
two countries. But he did
not mean just our shared
historical experiences, but a
belief in what he called ‘the
great principles of freedom
and the rights of man’.
A White House spokesperson stated: “The UK is a
firm partner at the time of
dealing with key strategic
challenges that face our two
countries, such as promoting peace and prosperity in
the world.”
The thorniest issue for
both leaders was Iraq. While
many are expecting Brown
to speed up withdrawal of
troops from the region, the
Bush administration has
sent an extra 30,000 troops
to Iraq since January, with
the president insisting that
there will not be a prompt
withdrawal of the 160,000
US troops stationed there.
His policies have not only
caused growing opposition
from the Democratic Party,
there is an increasing unease in the ranks of his
own Republican Party, with
the issue causing a possible
defeat in next year’s presi-
FRIENDLY GET TOGETHER: Brown and Bush in Camp David
dential election.
Both leaders agreed that
there were still “responsibilities to maintain” in
Iraq, while Brown stated:
“Our aim, along with the
United States, is to transfer greater control to the
Iraqi authorities step by
step.” The North American president manifested
his obligation to: “work for
liberty and justice in all the
world…Brown shares this
vision.” However, although
Brown asserted that Britain and the US were in a
“common struggle” against
terrorism, he stated that Afghanistan was at the front
line of terrorism, compared
to Bush’s view that the battle must be fought in Iraq.
Although Brown has
always said he wishes to
maintain firm links with
the US, it was clear in the
press conference that these
relations would not be as
intense as those during the
Blair era, when Blair was
referred to as Bush’s poodle.

“The dorsal fin, its dark colouration and the way the

Taliban is prepared
to start negotiations
Taliban has executed two of
the South Korean hostages
Alex Elgar
The Taliban announced on
Monday that it had executed another of the 22 South
Koreans taken hostage on
July 19, after the deadline
given to the Afghanistan
government
to
release
eight Taliban prisoners in
exchange for the hostages,
expired.
The
terrorists
have
warned that the lives of all
of the hostages remain in
danger if their demands
are not met.
Sung Sin, 28, was the
second South Korean to be
executed since the group
of 23 Christian voluntary
workers was taken hostage.
Last Wednesday, Bae Hyung-kyu, 42-year-old leader
of the group, was executed.
The group, members of
Seoul’s evangelical church,
had travelled to Afghanistan to help the humanitarian mission, but were kidnapped in the province of
Ghazni, some 140km south
of Kabul.
On Sunday, Afghanistan’s
president, Hamid Karzai,

the kidnapping of the South
Koreans as “shameful” and

The British army pulled

this Tuesday, after 38 years
in the province.
Operation Banner was the
longest-ever military campaign in British history,
with troops first sent to
Ulster in 1969 to help deal
with rising violence between Catholics and Protestants. During this time,
more than 300,000 soldiers
served in Northern Ireland
and 763 lost their lives by
paramilitaries.
Britain’s deputy minister
for the armed forces, Bob
Ainsworth, announced that
August 1 marked the start
of a new era for the army in
Northern Ireland. He highlighted the “commitment
and sacrifice” of those who
were in Northern Ireland.
He said: “We should take
this opportunity to remember the commitment,
bravery and sacrifice of all
those who have served over
so many years in helping
deliver the current, more
settled and more optimistic
circumstances.”
Security in Northern Ireland will now be handed
over exclusively to Northern Ireland’s police force,
although a 5,000-strong
British army contingent
will remain in the territory
with a very limited role.
In May this year, two former
enemies, Democratic Unionist Party leader the Reverend Ian Paisley and Sinn

Free as the wind, old as the hills
Their days of running wild
in the Doñana national park
could be numbered. The
world’s oldest, most unique
– and yet most ignored –
breed of horses is dying out
fast…
Samantha Kett
F
or more than a
thousand years,
these
ethereal
creatures have
been roaming the hills
and marshes of southern Andalucía. For a
thousand years, man has
mostly been unable to
tame them, unable to clip
their wings and halt their
eternal flight.
For a thousand years, the
Retuerta, the wild horses
of the Doñana national
park in the province of
Cádiz, a natural wetland
that feeds off the river
Guadalquivir, have run
free as the wind.
Yet now, there are only
60 left.
An endangered species,
the Retuerta is said to
be the oldest surviving
breed of horse in Europe,
if not the world – and
the most unique, with no
solid genetic connection
having been found to any
other equine race on the
planet.
Retuertas are usually
grey or dark bay in colour, coarse-looking and
of sturdy build. They
rarely reach 16hh (1.6m
or 5’4”) in height and,
until recently, were considered an inferior, even
useless, strain of equine,
described as ugly and
ungainly. As a species
they were mostly ignored,
mainly because of their
stand-offish character and
the difficulty in breaking and schooling them
– which in most cases was
considered pointless as
they are smaller in size
and less strong than the
more widely-renowned
Pura Raza Española.
In centuries gone by,
Retuertas were used
for working the fields
at times, but in general
they are too difficult to
domesticate even if anyone succeeds in catching
them. Now, though, they
have risen in status and
are considered one of the
most valuable gems of
Spain’s natural heritage.
In fact, they are thought
to be one of the only populations of horses on the
continent that live in complete liberty and cut off
from other species.
If you have ever taken
a stroll or driven across
Dartmoor, Exmoor, the
New Forest or the remote
parts of the Scottish
Highlands, this may come
as a surprise. In these
and five other parts of
the Britain where ponies
roam free, the animals are
a protected species and
have right of way on the
roads – if a herd of them
decides to meander along
in front of your car, you
have no option but to slow
down and wait.
However, huge numbers
of these ponies have
been tamed, broken in,
schooled, bred with other
species and are seen all
over the UK and Ireland
at local shows and Pony
Club rallies or working
in riding schools. They
are no longer exclusively
wild, nor exclusively pure
bred – and those that roam
freely regularly come into
contact with other wild
ponies and cross-breeding
occurs.
This is not the case with
the Doñana horses, who
live in a totally isolated
nucleus in the marshy
areas bordering the dunes
(known locally as las
retuertas, hence the horses’ name) where rainwater is collected in a natural reservoir during the
dry season allowing the
animals to survive.
A breed apart
Most of the world’s commonest breeds of horses
and ponies have some
connection to each other.
Rather like the human
race with its global gene
pool that varies surprisingly subtly from continent to continent, the
sturdy Welsh cob and the
delicate, exotic Arab, the
robust New Forest and the
sleek thoroughbred seen
on the tracks of Ascot
and Cheltenham share
the same blood lines and
many points in common
in terms of their physical
characteristics and their
temperament. The nine
native breeds of British
mountain and moorland
ponies, for example, are
anything but hybrids –
the Welsh mountain with
its dished face and high
tail has a pronounced
Arab influence, as do the
Connemara ponies running wild in Galway Bay.
Queen Victoria’s decision
to let loose a handful of
Anglo-Arab (thoroughbred-Arab cross) stallions
into the New Forest meant
the ponies’ characteristics
would change for good
– their stockiness became
more refined, their coats

sleeker and their heads
more dainty and chiselled. French Arabs used
for racing have a good deal
of thoroughbred blood
in them, to make them,
by nature, faster (which
defeats the object, purists
believe) and finally, the
Argentinean ‘miniature’,
the Fallabella, which
stands at a maximum of
7.2hh (75cm or 30 inches)
is thought to be related
to the hardy, headstrong
Shetland pony.
Yet the Retuerta horses
of the Doñana national
park apparently have no
genetic connection to any
other breed of horse on
the planet.
So, how did they get there?
Scientists, nature-lovers
and the horsy fraternity
want to know. Well, the
same could be said of the
Basque language, which
has no linguistic links
to any other tongue. It
appears the Retuertas,
like Euskera, were beamed
down from Mars without
anybody having noticed.
A prehistoric
race
According to the magazine
Animal Genetics, which
first published the results
of studies on Retuertas
earlier this year, there is
nothing on record about
how the breed came into
existence. Equine historians have a theory that
they may have escaped
being domesticated or
crossed with other species
many millennia ago.
Two basic strains of horses were in existence some
ten or twenty million
years ago, from which all
others are descended – the
Equus Caballus, whose
descendents were eventually used for domestic
purposes, and the Equus
Przewalski, the wild horse
of the Asian steppes. For
prehistoric quadrupeds,
it was a woman’s world
– there were vastly more
N
mares than stallions on
the planet, thus if a huge
number of the western
world’s horses were to
trace their family tree
back to the year dot they
would probably find most
of them shared the same
father. Biologists found
the
‘Y’
chromosome
in various breeds they
tested was fairly similar,
with the exception of the
Retuertas who seemed to
have escaped the worldwide equine family tradition.
Are these
horses really so
unique?
Studies into the Retuertas
have been ongoing since
the 1980s. The DNA of
this endangered species
of horse has been closely
examined along with that
of another ten breeds
from Europe and North
Africa, and was found to
be dramatically different to every one of them.
Biologists examined the
English thoroughbred,
the Pura Raza Española,
the Arab,
British
mountain and moorland ponies, and native
Spanish breeds such as
the Losino, Mallorquín,
Menorquín, Asturcón, the
Spanish Trotter and the
Basque ‘pottoka’. None
were found to be any relation whatsoever to the
Retuerta.
This said, a breed of semiferal horses, known as
Marismeño, were found
to be physically similar
to the Retuertas, even
though their DNA is completely different - meaning
that as a last resort they
could be interbred with
the latter in an attempt to
increase the population.
Retuerta cross-breeds –
Marismeño or Pura Raza
Española (Spanish thoroughbred) crossed with
the native Doñana strain –
have been found in homes
and farms in Andalucía,
claims Ciro Rico, one of
the biologists behind the
equine investigation, but
non-wild pure Retuertas
are extremely rare.
Despite its exclusivity,
speculation is rife that
the Doñana horses may
have a number of illegitimate children on the
other side of the pond.
Biologists have yet to
study the genetic makeup
of the Retuerta against
the most common breeds
found on the American
continent, which they say
will prove vital to their
findings as the Spanish
colonisation and later
trade links with the
Americas centuries ago
meant the blood lines of
horses, as well as people,
became diluted and radically altered.
Juan Vicente Delgado,
head of the faculty of
veterinary studies at
Córdoba
university,
believes the other Doñana
species, the more com-
monly-found Marismeño
which
shares
many
physical characteristics –
although no DNA – with
the Retuerta, was the
forefather of the archetypical cowboy mount in
the wild west of the USA,
the prairie Indians and
the Argenti
nean
gauchos. In fact, Delgado
believes many horses
on the American continent with Hispanic roots
come from the Doñana
Marismeño.
He also believes the
Marismeño shares its
genes with one of Spain’s
most popular breeds, the
Pura Raza Española.
Given the physical similarities of the hybrid
Retuerta and the more
common, domesticated
Marismeño, it is possible that the former was
crossed with species from
the Americas when links
with Spain became established and migrants came
to live and work.
N
Save our wild horses
Now, along with further studies, the important issue is
to save these rare and highly-threatened horses from
extinction. Ciro Rico, leading a team comprising representatives of the universities of Córdoba and Madrid
Complutense, two large, well-known stud farms, the central government’s Ministry of Defence and various vets
and biologists, says the future for the Doñana horses
looks bleak unless they take action fast. An epidemic
of any description could be enough for us to lose the
Retuertas altogether.
The team is planning various actions such as breeding
wild and in captivity, building up a sperm bank, artificial
insemination, and implanting frozen embryos in domesticated mares.
How does the Retuerta differ from the Pura Raza Española?
Retuerta
Pura Raza Española
■ The Pura Raza Española is
usually grey, bay, black or chestnut and stand at an impressive
16-17hh (1.6-1.7m or 5’4”-5’8”).
Of a balanced conformation and
harmonious appearance, they are
strong in appearance but beautiful to behold, with an arched
neck and high tail suggesting
distant links to the Arab. They
are extremely tractable, easy to
handle and to train and highly
versatile - they are used for showing, driving, hacking, showjumping, eventing, although they are
perhaps better known for their
impeccable dressage skills. The
Spanish Riding School is famed
the world over and you may catch
short displays of these stunning
horses carrying out high-school
dressage during local and regional fiestas.
■ By contrast, the Retuerta has always had a
bad press, until the scientists and historians
became aware of their presence and realised
that, not only were they in danger of extinction, but were quite possibly the oldest and
purest race in the world. Unlike the Pura Raza,
which was crossed with Berber Arabs and
Turkish breeds centuries ago to give them
their present-day characteristics, the Retuerta
is the world’s purest known breed. Usually bay
or brown, occasionally grey, they are awkwardlooking and of sturdy build, with a poor conformation that makes them an unlikely choice
for any kind of equestrian activity. Smaller than
the Pura Raza, despite their robust stature
Retuertas were usually overlooked in favour
of the former when man sought a four-legged friend to work the fields. Yet at last, the
Retuerta is ready to stand up and be counted.
Equestrian experts no longer look down their
noses at this humble mountain breed – the
Retuerta is set to be given the protection, care
and status that it has always deserved.

How can I avoid this?
It is very important to look after your

* Invest in a leave in conditioner with a
sunscreen. If you can’t find one and are in
a hurry to get to the beach, then massage
some of your sun tan oil into your hair

when you get home.
*Cover your hair while sunbathing,
it doesn’t have to be a big floppy hat
– there are some really trendy bandanas
or headscarves out there.
*Deep condition your hair once a week
i.e. using a rich reconstructive condi-
tioner on washed, towel-dried hair, cover
with cling film and leave it on for at least
15 minutes.
*Try not to blow-dry and straighten your
hair too much, enjoy your waves and
curls. Let your hair dry naturally using
specially formulated products to hold the
curls in place then finish off with a serum
to protect the ends.
*Finally, continue to have regular trims: a
centimetre or two every 4-6 weeks will
keep the ends tidy and help prevent frizz.

WAG
Stunning Brit model-cum-actress Kelly Brook has blasted the recent obsession with the WAG look,
claiming looking natural is much sexier. Brook, who is a curvaceous 34E-24-34, says that she keeps
trim by doing lots of exercising and no dieting. She said: “I hate the WAG style everyone’s obsessed
with. It’s all bad fake tan, blonde hair extensions and fake nails. They spend a fortune but look tacky.
I aspire to the 50s look. I always think my Mum gave me this face, this body and I’m grateful. I don’t
want to start messing around with what she gave me.”

Denial: it’s not just
a river in Egypt
This article represents the view of the author, which is not necessarily shared
by other AA members or by the AA fellowship as a whole
This old music hall joke makes light of a killer syndrome. Denial will be our demise and
must be met head on; with courage and fortitude, as part of the process of recovery
from alcoholism.
Firstly look at denial itself. An insidious, creeping melanoma, which, by its very nature
denies its own existence; a black hole in the nihilist universe of lies and deceit from which
not only alcoholics suffer.
We deny ourselves the truths as they really are; those truths that are our responsibility. Look at the family of a man or woman suffering from the potentially fatal disease of
alcoholism. They may say to their friends that it is the pressure of work that causes the
drinking; they may even deny there is a problem altogether. Denying the existence of
something, be it a disease, condition or object does not make it go away. It doesn’t hide
under the carpet for a while and then disappear. It hides deep in the subconscious and
festers, becoming the foetid killer we know it as.
We don’t only deny the truth and often the bad in ourselves; we may also deny the good.
The mind can be a dangerous playground and will tell us we aren’t good looking enough,
we aren’t clever enough or good at our jobs. Denial, keeping us in the place it needs to
feed from; our being and soul.
How many examples of denial do you need? Here are a few, taught to me while studying law at a university in England. They are known as the four pure defences: 1) It didn’t
happen. 2) If it happened I wasn’t there.3) If it happened and I was there; I didn’t do it.
And 4) (my personal favourite) If it happened and I was there, and I did it, I was mad at
the time and not responsible for my actions. I know about this because
I have been mad.
How can we possibly be guilty of anything, and therefore accept
our responsibilities when the law by which we live is based on
denial? Honesty with ourselves and acceptance of our responsibilities for our own lives, that’s how.
We are taught from a young age to blame others; family and
friends, for our own mistakes and occasional failings. We
blame places for having treated us badly and things, inanimate objects, that can do no more than occupy space for
hexing us, for shattering dreams and causing our problems.
We place human emotions on animals and create a fantasy
of denial and utopian dreams in our heads.
You may wish to consider that within every argument is
its own opposite.The paradigm of dialectic philosophy; lost
you yet, I think not. By admitting one thing, we must accept
the existence of its opposite, in some philosophies these
exist interwoven, in western cultures as direct opposing
forces, but all admit they are there, so all admit there is a
solution.
We choose the path of solution, and for me, an alcoholic, I choose to admit my alcoholism and I choose to face what previously I had denied. And, on a daily basis I choose not
to take a drink today; just for today.
By writing like this I am also trying to tell you something else. Some of the best-read,
wisest people I have ever met are in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous. Don’t be
frightened off, the best friend I have ever had is an 80-year-old lady; I have known tramps,
lawyers, pilots and judges, lords and ladies, thieves, murderers and policemen. All breeds
apart and united by a common acceptance of their alcoholism and a belief in recovery.
Anyone can and does suffer, for if you are reading this you may already be an interested
party, maybe facing reality for the first time. A sneaking suspicion that all is not well in
your Costa Blanca idyll. It is, frankly a bit dull here at times. Not that I don’t love Spain,
but if you are not careful you will find less and less is done each day and the Spanish
become more and more annoying. Believe me they haven’t got worse, you have.
So if you recognise anything I have said, or if you think you have a problem with alcohol,
or know someone who has, telephone the Costa Blanca helpline.Talk to someone about
the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous or its sister fellowship, Al-Anon, for the families
of alcoholics. The answer is just a phone call away.

Q
My husband and I have been trying to have a child for nearly three years. We
have started infertility treatment but still no luck. I feel devastated, a freak,
that I cannot do what I regard as the most natural thing in life – have a baby. My life
feels meaningless. My husband won’t talk and busies himself in work. My sisters
are now both pregnant again and it feels so painful being with them. They don’t
seem to understand how difficult it is for me. I feel desperate.
A
Infertility can strike
at the very core of our
being and identity as a man
or woman. Our identity and
value can be bound up with
our ability to procreate.
The impact of infertility
differs between men and
women, regardless of the
cause, and can exert a
significant pressure on the
couple relationship.
The
female
experience
can be both complex and
painful.
It is generally
characterised by periods
of
intense feelings of
isolation, from her partner,
her social circle, her
family and society. Women
can feel unsupported and
misunderstood throughout
the experience which adds to
their despair and isolation.
Pregnancy and motherhood
for many women is part
of feminity and failure to
produce can evoke fears
of failure as a woman, as
a person and that her body
has failed too. Many women
can suffer from depression
in response to suffering
various kinds of loss.
● Loss of the relationship
with a child. The imagined
and anticipated role of
being a parent.
● Loss of the status of
being a parent in relation
with one’s family, peers
and in the community.
● Loss of self-confidence in
not having attained a goal
often long anticipated.
● Loss of one’s stake in
the future i.e. feeling the
family name will not live
on.
● Loss of the pleasure
afforded by parenthood,
which
might
include
giving a child what you
wanted as a child and
repairing past hurts or
deprivations.
● Loss of one’s healthy
self image.
● Loss of self-esteem i.e.
a sense of worth that
may be associated with
important life goals.
● Loss of the experience
of being pregnant and
giving birth and to feel
excluded
from
these
experiences.
Men on the other hand can
feel very anxious about the
threat to their masculinity
but may not necessarily
want to share these feelings
with their partner. You
seem to be interpreting your
husband’s response as not
caring. It is possible that he
feels inadequate, insecure
and anxious that he cannot
resolve the problem and
sees you suffering but feels
unable to comfort you.
Treatment
options
for
infertility are many, complex
and can be financially
and emotionally draining
which can last for years.
Treatment
can
include
drug therapy, corrective
surgery and intrauterine
insemination (IUI) as well
as
in-vitro
fertilisation
(IVF) (sperm injection into
an egg) as well as surrogacy
arrangements.
The pressure of treatment
and the uncertainty for the
future can put enormous
stress on the relationship.
The relationship between
the couple can be tested
to breaking point with
periods of intense closeness
and hostility which can
sometimes
result
in
separation.
I would suggest you find a
therapist so that you can talk
about these losses and for
someone to guide and support
you during this period.
You and your husband may
wish to have some couple’s
counselling to help strengthen
the
communication
and
relationship too. Perhaps
your husband might want to
have someone to whom he
can share his feelings with
too.

Q
A
What exactly is herpes? How is it spread? Can I get rid of it forever?
Recently one of my
patients attended at the
clinic with a very sore area
on her vulva. The problem
started with a sensation of
discomfort and progressed
to sore itchy blisters that
broke to form small ulcerated areas.
Since this patient had only
one sexual partner for
many years, and there was
no history of him having
any infections, she was very
puzzled when I diagnosed
herpes.
Later, on questioning, he
admitted to having had little
lesions on his penis at various times over the years.
The last episode had been
over three years before.
Herpes simplex has two
main strains: one that tends
to form cold sores around
the mouth (but it can spread
to any part of the body),
and one that tends to affect
the anal and genital areas.
Herpes genitalis is treated
as a sexually transmitted
disease.
Once the herpes virus has
set up residence, it does not
leave. It lies dormant until
the host becomes a little
under par and then takes
advantage of the lowered
immune status to cause an
outbreak.
It is spread by direct contact, and contrary to many
beliefs, it can spread from
one person to another, even
when there are no obvious
lesions.
Some people find that sudden changes in temperature
and direct sun on the skin
provoke outbreaks.
There is no way of killing
the virus, but the problem
can be greatly limited by
taking various precautions.
● Avoid contact when
there are active lesions
● Wear condoms
reduce contact
to
● Do not share towels,
cups, drinking glasses
etc
● Remember that oral
herpes in the form of
cold sores can transfer to
the genital areas
● Keep your immune system as healthy as possible: fresh fruit and vegetables, at least 2 litres
of still water per day,
large doses of Vitamin C
daily (when low).
● Try Tissue Salts nos.
4 & 5 (they contain the
homeopathic
remedy
Natrum
Muriaticum).
This is often helpful in
reducing attacks
● Use Zovirax cream on
the lesions at the earliest possible moment after
feeling the tell-tale tingling or itch. Use it five
times daily for five days
(at least).
● Try Famvir if Zovirax
fails to help
● Sometimes it is necessary to take Zovirax by
mouth if outbreaks are
very persistent
● Pregnant
mothers
should beware of infecting the baby at birth and
sometimes
caesarean
sections are performed
to avoid infection in the
vaginal birth passage
Viruses are minute particles made up of a protein
shell and a genome.
The genome is the complex
of all the genetic information of the virus: chromosomes, and DNA etc.
Viruses are completely parasitic, and can only multiply when they insert their
genome into a living cell.
As the cells multiply, so does
the virus.
Antibiotics do not kill
viruses.
If you suspect that you have
herpes simplex your doctor
can confirm the diagnosis
using swabs and blood tests,
and clinically, by recognizing the typical type of
lesion.

Set in the aftermath of the 1972 massacre of 11 Israeli
athletes at the Munich Olympics, Munich recounts the
dramatic story of the secret Israeli squad assigned to track
down and assassinate 11 Palestinians believed to have
planned the 1972 Munich massacre.
During WW2, only one
attempt was made to stop a
train with deported Jews. On
April 19th 1943, the XXth
transport from Belgium to
Auschwitz was ambushed
by 3 young men. This documentary tells the story of
the ambush, but also tries
to find an answer to the very
poignant question: why was this the only attempt? Why did the
Resistance never try to stop the deportation? Why did the Allied
air force never bomb the railway tracks leading to the camps?
Series following the adventures
of a London couple as they
move to Spain in the hope of
running a stylish retreat for
paying guests.
The couple’s road trip to their
new home starts off badly with
Dawn furious with Rocco for
getting drunk on their last night
in Britain. After a painful
heart-to-heart, they reconcile
– but tensions flare again
during the journey.

She’s the Man
Sky Movies Premier 13.00 - 15.00
Viola Johnson (Amanda Bynes) had her own good reasons for disguising
herself as her twin brother Sebastian (James Kirk) and enrolling in his place
at his new boarding school, Illyria Prep. She was counting on Sebastian
being AWOL from school as he tried to break into the music scene in London.
What she didn’t count on was falling in love with her hot roommate, Duke
(Channing Tatum), who in turn only has eyes for the beautiful Olivia (Laura
Ramsey). Making matters worse, Olivia is starting to fall for Sebastian,
who--for reasons Olivia couldn’t begin to guess--appears to be the sensitive
type of guy she’d always dreamed of meeting. If things weren’t complicated
enough, the real Sebastian has come back from London two days earlier than
expected and arrives on campus having no clue that he’s been replaced...by
his own twin sister.

few things in his life. But there’s just one
little thing he hasn’t quite gotten around
to doing yet--something most people have
done by his age. Done a lot. Andy’s never,
ever, ever had sex--not even by accident.
So is that such a big deal? Well, for Andy’s
buds at the store, it sure is. Although
they think he’s a bit of an oddball, there’s
certainly a planet full of stranger (and
homelier) guys who’ve at least had one
go at having a go. They consider it their
duty to help Andy out of his dire situation
and go to great lengths to help him. But
nothing proves effective enough to lure
their friend out of lifelong chastity until he
meets Trish, a 40-year-old mother of three.
Andy’s friends are psyched by the possibility that “it” may finally happen...
until they hear that Andy and Trish have begun their relationship based on a
mutual no-sex policy

Toy Story 2
Disney cinemagic 10.00- 11.30
In “Toy Story 2,” the fun and adventure continues when
Andy goes off to summer camp and the toys are left to
their own devices. Things shift into high gear when an obsessive toy collector kidnaps Woody who unbeknownst to
himself is a highly valued collectable. It’s now up to Buzz
Lightyear and the gang from Andy’s room - Mr. Potato
Head, Slinky Dog, Rex and Hamm - to spring into action
and save their pal from winding up as a museum piece.
There’s plenty of excitement and fun as the toys get into
one predicament after another in their daring race to get
home before Andy does.

Boxer Rocky Balboa enjoys the
wealth he has as world-champion.
He only fights against easy
opponents. Then he is challenged
by the arrogant Clubber Lang.
Rocky accepts the challenge to
prove once more that there is only
one world-champion. But Lang wins
and becomes the new champion.
Nobody believes in Rocky anymore,
except one man: former worldchampion Appolo Creed. And Creed
tries to stimulate his fighting spirit

The Public Enemy
TCM 12.00 - 13.45
The Public Enemy (1931) is one of the earliest and best of the
gangster films from Warner Bros. in the thirties. The film’s
screenplay (by John Bright and Kubec Glasmon), which received
the film’s only Academy Award nomination, was based upon their
novel Beer and Blood. Unfortunately, the film wasn’t even given
a Best Picture nomination, nor was Cagney rewarded with a nomination for his dynamic and kinetic performance. Jean Harlow’s
small role as a sexy call-girl was her only screen appearance with
Cagney and her only lead role with Warners.

John and Jane Smith are an ordinary suburban couple with an ordinary, lifeless suburban marriage. But each is hiding something
the other would kill to know: Mr. and Mrs.
Smith are actually highly paid, incredibly efficient assassins, and they work for competing
organisations.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith discover a new source
of excitement in their marriage, when they’re
hired to assassinate each other... and that’s
when the real fun starts. The result is the
ultimate action spectacle, as Mr. and Mrs.
Smith put their formidable skills to work and
their marriage to the ultimate test.

Randolph and a sarcastic scientist, Drew. On
the whaler’s ship is captain John Wesley and

say so. Along the way, Willy reunites with

Bo Laramie is a movie star who has finally achieved success. But success comes at
a price, in the form of four persistent photographers known as the paparazzi. Using
their dishonest methods of getting the money shot regardless of what it takes, they’ll
stop at nothing in exploiting Bo for every last penny. But when one of their ventures
nearly costs Bo’s life and that of his
family when they cause a car accident
and do nothing afterwards except take
photos, Bo has finally reached his
breaking point. In doing so, Bo decides
to exact a crafty and complex revenge
on those four who have enjoyed making his life a living hell with his focus

Sci-Fi nominees
Battlestar Galactica receives 4 Emmy nominations including Outstanding Directing for a Drama series, Outstanding Sound
Editing, Outstanding Special Visual Effects and Outstanding Writing. Furthermore, the hit sci-fi series Heroes and Lost also have
received nominations, in a year which reflects the increasing power of the internet to make or break TV programmes.
Cult series Jericho made a TV comeback when fans plagued the shows creators, and Lost used its websites, (official and unofficial sites) to create a buzz outside of just TV advertising.
Spice City?
The reunited Spice Girls recently unveiled an 11-date tour throughout the world but don’t want to leave out
fans living in cities that aren’t on the trek.
In a post on the group’s website, the girls unveiled a contest that will allow one city to be added to the list of
tour dates that currently includes Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, Buenos Aires, London, Köln, Madrid,
Capetown, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Sydney.
“We’ve had loads of messages from people all over the world asking why we weren’t performing in their
country. It’s impossible for us to perform everywhere but we thought why not let our fans decide where we
play? This is your chance to turn your city in to ‘Spice City!’ All you need to do is tell us where you want to
see us!” The city with the most votes will be
added to the list.
Desperately seeking ratings
US reality TV actress Nicole Ritchie, socialite friend of Paris Hilton
is to be jailed for four days for driving under the influence
of drugs last December. Allegedly pregnant by current
boyfriend, (singer Joel Madden of the band Good Charlotte),
Ritchie (adopted daughter of Lionel Ritchie) will also be put
on three years probation. She was arrested in December for
driving the wrong way on the 134 Freeway in Burbank, California.
Highway Patrol officers said they found Ritchie stopped in the carpool
lane and that she was the lone occupant of the vehicle. She admitted
to officers that she had smoked marijuana and taken the painkiller
Vicodin. In 2003, Ritchie was arrested on suspicion of heroin possession
and spent time in rehabilitation.
However, suspicions abound that the jail time represents no real deterrent
to Ritchie, who looks set to follow Paris Hiltons path once more, and may
even gain more notoriety after this jail time, which could conceivably
boost ratings of their reality TV show A Simple Life.

Coldplay play it hot
In a series of web posts the Coldplay frontman
Chris Martin and his mates have said that
their forthcoming album will have a
Hispanic tinge to it. “The sights, sounds
and flavours of Latin America and
Spain have definitely been infused
on this album,” the band wrote.
The band visited Argentina,
Chile, Brazil, and Mexico earlier
this year and then came up
with the idea of recording in
Spain.
The band apparently spent
quite a bit of time recording
in churches in Spain, setting up
with only “an acoustic guitar,
a couple of mikes, a laptop,
and some headphones”and
“playing at the feet of
archangels.”
We imagine this musical
decision has nothing to do with
the fact that Chris Martin’s
famous wife Gwyneth owns a
property in Spain...
The new album, is expected
to hit stores sometime in 2008.

LOGIC
YOUR
TRADING ESTATE
The famous stately home of Ravenwood Priory costs a lot to run, and to earn that
money the Earl of Loray had had not only to open the main house to the public, but
also convert some of the other buildings on the estate to business premises of various
kinds. From the clues given, can you work out which Earl had each building erected,
the name of the architect who designed it, and the business now run from it?
Stars
Will you meet a dark, handsome stranger? Will your lottery ticket show
the winning number? Or is it time you decluttered the cupboard under
the stairs and remembered to take the curtains to the dry-cleaners?
Find out what our stars have in store for you this week...
CAPRICORN
CANCER
Life should be running in a
smooth manner. Ideas and
interaction with authority
figures or older people may
be in the forecast. There
are several opportunities
to make good decisions and
clear choices. You are at
your most practical now and
the things that take place
this week may have a lasting
effect on your life direction.
Your fine verbal skills and
a natural sense of justice
makes legal work your expertise. This is a perfect
time for new ideas, a breakthrough in thinking, a novel
approach. You have information this Saturday that
you had not known about
before – a missing piece of
the puzzle, so-to-speak.
Dec 22 – Jan 19
AQUARIUS
Jan 20 – Feb 18
Sympathy and understanding are emotional qualities
that take on greater importance. It is wisdom and not
knowledge that counts most.
This is a good time to be patient and tread a little lightly
when it comes to indulgence
and overextending yourself.
PISCES
Feb 19 – March 20
Good fortune and plain old
luck surrounds you this
week. It is easy for you to
make the correct decisions,
find the right path, and move
forward where your career
is concerned. This Friday is
a time to get ahead by taking
action. Keep your attitude
positive and all opportunities will become clear.
ARIES
March 21 – April 19
Everything seems to be
working well this week. You
may find that the patience
you put forth with others
has paid off – especially
when you see the positive
responses. You are a good
listener and many of the
strategies you use now may
have been suggestions from
others.
TAURUS
April 20 – May 20
Your career direction gets
some encouragement this
week and life’s problems
seem easier to solve. You
may benefit from an older
person or one in authority. You have an instinctive
urge to get serious about
taking care of yourself. You
could have an emotional
conversation with someone
this week.
GEMINI
May 21 – June
You will find a way around
almost any obstacle and
are in control and able to
guide yourself with ease.
This week, you may find
yourself very appreciative
of your career and practical skills. You might enjoy
solving puzzles and problems, finding solutions, etc.
A renewed appreciation for
your work may be apparent
to your superiors.
June 22 – July 22
LEO
CLUES
1. The Orangery, which is now
the Orangery Restaurant, was
built for an earlier Earl than the
one who commissioned the
famous Marmeduke Waterman to design an estate building for him.
2. The Dower House, built by
the fifth Earl for his widowed
mother, has not been converted to a garden centre;
the building which is now a
garden centre was built by an
earlier Earl than the one who
commissioned the Gatehouse,
a replacement for the original
destroyed in the Civil War.
3. The Old Stables weren’t built
by the sixth Earl; the Belvedere, a large and elaborate
multi-storeyed summerhouse,
was designed by Pierre-Jean
Le Vaux.
4. The building constructed for
the fourth Earl, now used as
an art gallery, was not designed by the Scots architect
Archibald Campbell.
5. The building designed by Sir
Lambert Barrie is now used to
house the Ravenwood Leisure
Centre.
6. Aubrey Gabriel was the architect who designed a building
for the seventh Earl of Loray.
July 22 – Aug 22
You are charming and always manage to enchant
others with your words and
manner. You bring a sense
of the beyond and mystical
to any conversation. You enjoy working with your mind
and your sharp perceptions
make finding new solutions
easy. You have lots of energy and drive available to
accomplish anything you
want to do at this time.
SUDOKU
VIRGO
Aug 23 – Sept 22
Your tendency to compromise and settle for less
than you dreamed can be a
problem this week. You may
choose the path of least resistance. Ideas are flowing
this Friday and come with
ease. You are aggressive
in the pursuit of gaining
insight into all that is new,
different and out of the ordinary.
LIBRA
Sept 23 – Oct 23
Be careful with some grandiose ideas this week – check
out the repercussions. Fond
of grand schemes, verbalisation and the like, these
ideas do not often boil down
to real solutions; take notes
and think things through.
Sensitivity to the needs and
wants of others and an appreciation for their frailties,
as well as your own, makes
you more cautious.
SCORPIO
Oct 24 – Nov 21
If you are not listening carefully this week, you could be
missing an important piece
of information. In-depth
conversations will be important note-taking situations
so that you can concentrate
on the tone and write down
the information.
SAGITTARIUS
Nov 22 – Dec 21
You may find yourself talkative and quick-witted. Ideas
are clear and easy to come by.
Some of your friends want to
tell you about their summer
adventure. Communication,
particularly with authority figures this Friday, could
prove troublesome. You may
not think as they do, and you
could find your thoughts run
opposite to theirs.

CINE ROMA
What we love about pirate movies and myths, of course, is their mix of adventure, freedom and naughtiness, and Verbinski and Depp again capture
all three.
I wouldn’t bet that it’s over either, despite the seeming finality of “Pirates of
the Caribbean: At World’s End,” which is the most visually spectacular, action-packed and surreal of the adventures of Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny
Depp).
The banter between the leads is refreshingly comedic, in a way that only
comes when actors and director have worked togther so extensively. Although it is dark and foreboding at times, the overall sensation is one of
mordant glee, with Depp having lost none of his drunken-Ronnie Wood depravity.
In the end, “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” with its added doses
of fantasy and even some piercing social comment (about Beckett and the
government’s rights-trampling tyranny), does its job. The movie, extravagant,
amusing and exciting, may be only a ride, but it’s a ride that dazzles.

In war-torn Sierra Leone, a white African diamond smuggler

his big-name status. Maddy Bowen, the journalist (played by
Jennifer Connelly), agrees to help if Archer will tell her the details of how conflict diamonds make their way into the hands
of the corporations who sell them to the Western world.
Now available on DVD from all good film & music stores.
Book review
From Paella to Porridge - by Peter Kerr
Ever since Peter Mayle sold us the
wonders of Provence there has
been a tremendous appetite for
travel books with a twist. More often
than not, the adventure quickly turns
to nightmare.
Peter Kerr set off full of optimism with
his family as they exchanged a farm
in Scotland for one in Mallorca, and
we followed every challenge they
faced in books like Snowball Oranges and Mañana, Mañana. There was
a lot of hard work and heartbreaks
along the way. But the end of the
series holds several surprises, not the
least of which being that the publications themselves were a vital part
of their survival.
From Paella to Porridge brings the
Kerrs full circle, back home to Scotland, but the return is not the end of
their problems. Without giving too
much away, some of the frustrations
that lead to their original adventure
in Spain have not gone away.
Peter’s reason for putting their story
in print becomes apparent and we
share, once again, the amazing fortitude of all the family. It was clear from
the previous books that the plan to
create a viable fruit farm on the hills
above Andratx was not going well,
and the need to expand, diversify or
give up was growing. This, combined
with the other challenge of creating
the best opportunities for their family,
lead to the inevitable decision, and
their bags are packed.
But going back to Scotland proves
to be more stimulating than depressing. Peter rediscovers his homeland,
including areas he once thought he
knew well.
For those who don’t know East Lothian, this book provides a perfect
Published by Summersdale ISBN: 9781840245066 €12.90
travelogue, and for those who do, it
is an eye opener. But, with the fun of
exploration, comes the problem of
trying once again to plough a living
from the land.
Plans for a deer farm are put on hold
while capital is created through
some house renovation. But they
spend too much time and money,
and then become attached to their
labour.
The battle for the farm is long, fierce
and acrimonious. Emotions rise and
fall, but there is always tension. In the
end...well that would be telling!

then, using the clues, solve the problem using the
grid. The grid cross-references all possible solutions
and once you know whether a solution is correct
or not you can mark a definite “no” with a cross
() and a definite “yes” with a tick (). Once you
have marked off everything you can find out from
the clues, use the grid to find out new answers
and then check through the clues again – don’t
forget to include information in all the relevant
places in the grid! Use the reference table below
the grid to help you. (Hint: when you know something is right, don’t forget to cross off everything
that therefore must be wrong.)
Sudoku
Complete grid so that each column, row and
3x3 square contains the numbers 1 to 9.
Battleships:
Find all the ships in the grid. Some parts of the
boats or sea have already been filled in, and
the number next to a row or column refers to
the total number of squares in that row / column
occupied by ships. Boats may be positioned
horizontally or vertically but no boats can touch

Pulse notes
First aid advice from PULSE FIRST AID TRAINING
Q
With the recent
plague of jellyfish
that have reached our
shores I am concerned
about
First
Aid
treatment for stings
as my husband and I
generally try to bathe in
less commercial beach
areas where there is no
cover from lifeguards
and the Cruz Roja.
What treatments do
you suggest if one of
us were to be stung by
a jellyfish?
A
A lack of natural
predators, such as
tuna and leatherback
turtles due to over-fishing,
has seen the jellyfish
population multiply to
alarming levels, while
strong summer winds and
a lack of coastal rainfall
has allowed huge colonies
to drift towards these
shores.
While the species of
jellyfish around Spain are
not the most dangerous,
their stings are painful
and can warrant a trip
to a medical centre if
the victim has multiple
stings.
An interesting article
appeared in The Sunday
Times this week where
Norwegian
scientists
are currently recruiting
volunteers to take part in
studies of an anti-jellyfish
sting agent incorporated
into a sunscreen – a
product which is likely
to be in high demand as
jellyfish populations are
soaring in most holiday
destinations.
Another
aside to the jellyfish
story is the myth about
urinating on the sting to
ease the pain.
A few years ago, the
characters in the TV show
Friends trekked to
the beach, only to
witness a jellyfish
sting Monica. In
this episode, Joey
remembered seeing
a documentary that
advised
urinating
on the sting to ease
the pain. Monica
agreed to try the
treatment and it worked.
Unfortunately, in the real
world treating a jellyfish
sting by urinating on
it may actually cause
someone in Monica’s
situation even more pain,
rather than relief.
Urine
can
actually
aggravate the jellyfish’s
stingers into releasing
more venom. This cure
is, indeed, fiction.
Jellyfish tentacles can be
so long that swimmers
might not see the jellyfish
that stings them, but they
will certainly feel it. The
pain is instant and once
stung, angry, red, whip
like lash marks mar the
skin. The pain radiates
from the sting site and
starts to itch, burn and
throb as it blisters.
Scratching it, though,
can make the pain worse,
because rubbing activates
the nematocysts, which
release more venom.
Jellyfish
stings
are
painful, but they are
rarely life-threatening.
For most such injuries,
the pain will not last
longer than 24 hours,
typically peaking five
minutes after the sting
occurs then dissipating
over the next few hours.
However the reaction
may depend on which
species of jellyfish you
come in contact with.
Washing
the
area
with saltwater should
help as such rinsing
will deactivate those
nematocysts that are still
attached. A freshwater
rinse will have the
opposite
effect.
Any
change to the balance
of solutes, such as the
concentration of salts
around the injury can set
off more stinging. Adding
freshwater to the sting site
dilutes the salts outside
the cell, unbalancing
the solutes. In reaction
to this change, the
nematocysts in the cells
release more venom – and
cause more pain. Many
stings in Mediterranean
waters can be assuaged
by vinegar, or 5 percent
acetic acid. Once rinsing
deactivates all the nasty
nematocysts, the attached
bits of tentacle can be
removed by coating them
with
shaving
cream
followed by shaving with
a razor or even a credit
card.
Alternatively
using
protective
gloves
or
tweezers, remove any
tentacles still in contact
with the victim. You could
also keep an ice pack on
the affected area. Make
sure that you don’t put
ice directly on your skin
as this also causes more
venom to be released.
A major concern is
where a victim is prone
to suffering from an
anaphylactic reaction to
being stung and in these
circumstances you will
need to seek medical
attention urgently…
I
covered this issue in Pulse
Notes back in April and

further information please

Heel Fissures
Definition
Heel fissures, also known
as cracked heels can be a
simple cosmetic problem
and a nuisance, but
can also lead to serious
medical problems.
Heel fissures occur when
the skin on the bottom,
outer edge of the heel
becomes hard, dry and
flaky, sometimes causing
deep fissures that can be
painful or bleed, often
during the summer.
Causes
Heel fissures can affect
anyone, but risk factors
include:
● Living in a dry
climate
● Obesity
● Consistently walking
barefoot or wearing
sandals or open-backed
shoes
● Inactive sweat glands
Avoid wearing open-backed shoes or sandals
●Thyroid disease
Treatment and
Prevention
Like many foot conditions,
heel fissures can become
more dangerous if they
go untreated and become
deep or infected.
This
is
especially
dangerous for people with
diabetes or compromised
immune systems, as the
heel fissures are an open
route for infections to
enter the body.
Moisturising the feet
regularly can prevent
heel fissures. Once they
occur, use a pumice stone
regularly every day to
gently decrease the thick
and flaky layer of skin.
Avoid going barefoot or
wearing
open-backed
shoes, sandals or shoes
with thin soles.
Shoes with strong shock
absorption can help to
improve the condition, as
they reduce wear and tear
on the foot.
Once the skin is exfoliated
with a pumice stone,
moisturising the feet
at least twice a day and
wearing socks over the
moisturised skin can
help.
Wearing socks at night
while sleeping can also
help.
If the problem persists,
see your Podiatrist for
further advice.

GRAHAM SHEPHARD
Graham obtained a teaching diploma when he studied
saxophone, flute and trumpet at Newcastle college in
the 1970s. During this time he played with Gordon Sumner,
‘Sting’ in two bands, The Phoenix Jazz Band and The
Newcastle Big Band with whom he recorded an LP. He
later travelled and played with various well-known artists
in Europe, America and the Middle East. In 2003, he took
over the Tailgate Swing Band which plays every Sunday
at the Cisne Rastro, Benidorm and dedicates himself to
running the band, playing in the duo Just Us, occasionally
joining other bands as a guest musician and performing
solo. A musician with a difference in that when he plays
solo he uses his own unique
arrangements as a backing
track, Graham then plays
sax, flute or keyboards over

It is only when you hear his
music that you comprehend
the extent of his talent and

have been remarked upon
as being superb by many
who have musical knowledge. When playing solo
he performs a mixture of 80s

THE BIG INTERVIEW

Democracy: We’re still paying
the price, 30 years after Franco
N Who is he?
Former university principal
Pedro Ruiz admits that he
has not considered what
British residents think about
Valencians, but he reveals the
truth about ‘los Valencianos’.
Berta Chulvi reports
Q
Which conflicts from
our past might help
British residents better
understand their surroundings?
alistic culture that consists
of earning maximum profits with the minimum of
effort in the shortest time
possible.
A
Q
The first is a spectacular change in the
local economy. In the sixties and into the seventies,
this society was based on
a strong agrarian sector
that in many ways meant
a very modern productive
economy. For instance,
much of the agricultural
produce was exported and
there were zones with notable small and medium-sized
companies manufacturing
furniture, footwear, textiles,
ceramics etc.
All this meant that our society faced a different set of
problems; the typical problems of land, commerce and
immigration distribution
in industrialised areas.
Then suddenly all this
changed into an economy
that was predominately
based on services, especially those associated with the
tourist industry.
Obviously this has transformed our society: the
agrarian economy has been
engulfed, and people do
business in different ways.
Fields have been transformed into residential estates, and, in certain areas,
local industries have undergone spectacular crises.
There is a new way of
working and a different
employment culture that
is much more flexible, but
which guarantees fewer defences for workers. All this
is creating a very individu-
Is it a growth model
that has nothing to
do with knowledge?
A
Well, in the past there
were quite a few cultural and intellectual deficits which no longer exist
today.
The agrarian and industrial economy that existed
before was based on a much
more practical set of skills
linked to production, but
which had substantial intellectual and cultural deficits that had characterised
this society for a very long
time.
People were not especially
wise nor cultured, and, as
very few underwent any
form of professional training, many businessmen
went on to become important people without any
qualifications at all.
This has changed. These
days most people go to university and then look for
any kind of work whether
or not it has anything to do
with what they studied.
It is true that the knowledge being gained by young
people today is very compartmentalised: today it
helps with one thing, and
tomorrow another.
Another thing we could
discuss is whether what
they are being taught is so
specialised that great wisdom will be needed to integrate them afterwards.
PEDRO RUIZ: Historian and defender of the Valencian language
Q
What other aspects
of our society do you
consider important to
understand what is happening now?
A
The lack of democratic political life during
decades. There is a traditional mistrust of politics
instilled and induced by
those in power.
People have a kind of
antagonism towards both
politics and politicians.
Scandals and the dishonest
behaviour of certain politicians help little to change
this attitude.
And I stress “certain” because there is a tendency to
generalise about the political classes that seems to me
to be unjust.
The general trend of mistrust is a throwback to the
dictatorship: responsibility
is left to others, people criti-
cise how bad things are, but
there is almost no culture
of political participation.
This was something that
was instilled during 40 years
as a way of undermining
democratic politics and to
pave the way for a small
number of leading lights of
the Franco regime to do as
they liked. And we are still
paying the price for this after
nearly 30 years of democracy.
TURN TO PAGE 50
Pedro Ruiz (Elche, 1951)
is Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Valencia (from
1981) and for eight years
was Principal of the University (1994-2002). For
the four years previously
(1987-1990) he was Organisational Director with
the previous Principal,
Ramón Lapiedra, at a
time in which the majority of professors of the
Universitat of Valencia
did not have any type of
job stability. He and his
team contributed to solving this problem. This
defender of the Valencian language, is the son
of a Madridian father
and his mother was from
Torrevieja.
He spent
much of his childhood
in Torrevieja, then a
town that was described
as “poor and small but
with the best quality of
life available”. Presently
he spends his holidays in
Xàbia where he has made
contact with a diverse
group of British and
German residents. His degree was in science from
Elche but afterwards he
changed his orientation
and studied History. He
was part of the team that
transformed the University of Valencia into a
democratic institution,
without doubt a difficult
and definitive time in its
history, that consolidated
the very character of the
current university. This
succeeded, among other
things, in assuring that
the university was not
obstructed by party politics. That people have
their personal ideological affinities is one thing,
but that the Principal
does not favour any political party is something
that today is taken for
granted. This was established during the time
of Ruiz and his companions who contributed
significantly to the autonomy of the University.
Pedro Ruiz replies:
‘Foreign residents are a force for change’
Q
Is there some historic antecedent for the affluence of
English residents?
A
Historically the English
came to trade within the
coastal zone. English merchants have been here for
centuries. Those who came
introduced into the Meditteranean – along with the French
– many liberal ideas, progressive methods, moving us from
old-standing associations and
methods. But the current phe-
nomenon is different, the English are not merchants. They
are retired people who come to
spend the end of their working
life in Spain, a time that is advantageous for them and then
there are the young people that
come to live here with their
children. For these youths the
world is a small place. Not only
for ease of transport now but
because in a way, culture is
increasingly more common and
in many places where there is
security from the legal point of
view, and certain economic and
technological conditions that
are favourable.
Q
Some have criticised the
urban development and
the ex-minster for the Environment of the Generalitat Valenciana, González Pons, affirmed
that the English have acted like
‘colonists’. What does a historian think?
A
I would not call them
this. I believe that they
act as a force for change.
They are people that come
from countries with a lot
more sensitivity to the questions of patrimony and of
environment and they arrive
at a zone where real barbarities are being committed and
they react against this. Besides, they come from countries where there is a greater
respect for the life of the
others. Colonists are those
that arrive at a zone that is
not explored.

an end, that it brought peace and paved the way for democracy. We are paying the
price of an isolation and a
problem specific to Spain
in the form of a democratic
deficit that does not affect
other European countries
like Germany, where accounts have been settled
for what occurred during
the Nazi era, or in France,
where those responsible for
complying with the Vichy
regime have been made to
pay. Here, there has been
no settling of accounts, nor
any kind of self critical assessment.
Q
Another important
conflict to understand in Valencian society
would be the ‘valencianocatalan’ language clash?

perspectives that hark back
to that era. Although nobody is prepared to vindicate Franco, there are those
who claim that the regime
“wasn’t so bad.”
A
Q
I believe that politicians have not properly explained to what extent
we were harmed by the
dictatorship, and the true
costs of it. This has allowed
the idea to spread that the
dictatorship was a kind of
parenthesis, or even that it
was something necessary
because Spaniards were
unable to live together during the 2nd Republic. This
means that an overly benevolent vision of the dictatorship has been created.
The fact that this politically
pedagogic task was never
performed means that we
are now being faced with
a resurgence of political
N
Forgetting was a mistake, or was there no
choice?
A
Perhaps it was not
the right time to resuscitate old grievances or
start blaming each other.
A lot of things needed to
be forgotten, but this does
not mean that there was
no need, at a later stage, to
educate people and make
them understand what the
dictatorship actually was,
and what it meant to be forced to yield during so many
years to a regime that distanced us from the rest of
Europe. I believe that to not
have done so has been part-
ly the result of intellectual
laziness and partly a failure to grasp the necessity of
this process.
Q
A
And can this be resolved now?
I believe it can, although it would be quite a controversial exercise
not merely given that different political parties cannot
agree on how to transmit
this message to the public,
but because this period of
history has become a live
missile that is being used by
parties on both sides of the
political spectrum. This political game-playing is once
again dividing the Spanish
people between those who
consider it necessary to remember the dictatorship as
something
tremendously
negative and those who do
not want to look back on
this period as they do not
believe any form of self-criticism or democratic pedagogy against what it meant,
is required.
Q
A
Are there many bodies in the freezer?
Yes, and as always
happens with these
things, they emerge almost
immediately. And what is
worse is that this happens
with people who did not
live through that era. The
worst thing is that there
are people who did not live
through the dictatorship
who believe that it was good
for Spain, or that it was in
some way necessary, or that
it brought about democracy. It is shocking that some
young people think that the
dictatorship was the moment when wars or conflict
between Spaniards came to
WHAT TO READ? Some figures about the evolution of Valencian society
Two professors at Valencia University, Joaquín
Azagra and Joan Romero, have just published
– in castellano and valenciano - a detailed sociological study about the
evolution of Valencian
society between 1997 and
2006.
This could be a great
book for those readers
who have a reasonable
working knowledge of
Spanish and want to look
deeper into some of the
issues Pedro Ruiz commented on in this interview, helping you find out
more about the area you
live in.
The book is a little on the
academic side – no photos or anything of that
nature – but its advantage is that the people who
wrote it are used to teaching in the classroom
and therefore explain the
issues with a great deal
of clarity.
DEMOGRAPHIC
FACTORS
The Comunitat Valenciana is one of the regions in Spain that has
FOREIGN RESIDENTS
In 1970, there were only
28,000 foreigners registered as living in the Comunitat Valenciana, but
in 2005 there were more
than half a million nonSpaniards on the official
census.
experienced the greatest
growth
in
headcount
in the last few decades
– in 1970, there were few
more than three million
inhabitants but by 2005
the population had risen
to 4.5 million.
BIRTH RATE AND OLD
AGE
In the 70s, the average woman had 2.7 children but
by 2005 this had fallen to
1.2. Life expectancy was
on average 70 to 75 years,
but now, it stands at 78
years of age.
ECONOMY
In 1975, the service sector generated 50 per cent
of wealth and 39.8 per
cent of employment. In
2005, however, services
accounted for 66.1 per
cent of added value created by economic activity
in the Valencia region
and 62.4 per cent of employment.
Construction accounted
for eight per cent of the
Gross Domestic Product
(GDP) and 9.6 per cent
of employment in 1975,
but thirty years later it
represented 11.3 per cent
of economic activity and
13.8 per cent of jobs.
By contrast, agriculture
and industry have lost
ground – in 1975 agriculture was responsible for
nine per cent of the GDP
and 17.9 per cent of em-
ployment; in 2005, this
had fallen to two per
cent of he GDP and just
3.3 per cent of jobs. As
for industry, the fall in
its significance has been
notable but slightly less
than in agriculture – in
1975, with limited technology and intense use
of manual workers, the
industrial sector produced 32.5 per cent of the
GDP and 33.1 per cent
of employment, compared to 19.9 per cent
of wealth and 20.5 per
cent of jobs nowadays.
DEBT AND PUBLIC
SPENDING
The Comunitat Valenciana holds the dubious
honour of being bottom
of the list of public
spending per inhabitant
(2,453 euros per head
compared to 5,732 euros
in Navarra and 3,088 in
Andalucía). Additionally, it is the most-indebted region in Spain in
terms of public funds
(2,149 euros per inhabitant compared to 1,089
euros in Navarra and
937 euros a head in Andalucía).
Politicians have
not properly
explained to what
extent we were
harmed by the
dictatorship and
there is an overly
benevolent vision
A
Yes. And it is important
to understand the roots
of it and the key facts.
What we now know as
the Valencian Community
was under Arab rule for
many hundreds of years.
The Christian reconquest
brought the Catalan language to Valencia because
it was undertaken by Catalan Christians operating
under the direction of the
Aragonese Crown, in the
same way that the Christian reconquest of Andalucía brought the ‘castellano’
Spanish to that region because it was carried out by
Christians from Castilla.
The Aragonese Crown
then organised the conquered lands into kingdoms
with their own peculiarities and institutions. From
this emerged the Kingdom
of Valencia that was clearly
definable by its own set of
laws (‘los fueros’) and traditions.
It is undeniable, therefore, that there was not a
Catalan kingdom in the
Crown of Aragón. In fact,
there were three: Aragón,
the principality of Cataluña and the Kingdom of Valencia.
The peculiarity and personality of the Kingdom of
Valencia is undisputable,
but this does not mean that
the language spoken in this
kingdom was any different
from the one spoken in Cataluña.
I believe that this situation is so logical, so common-sensical, that the existing conflict can only be
understood to be the result
of a political manipulation
of a very real anti-Catalan
feeling within Valencian
society that has been intentionally amplified.
Q
Did the dictatorship
spell the end for ‘valenciano’?
A
The ‘Castellanisation’
of the Valencian region is a process that started a long time before the
dictatorship. The élite of
Valencian society in the
18th and 19th centuries
used ‘castellano’ a lot more
than ‘valenciano’, something that did not happen in
Cataluña. This means that,
in 19th century Valencia,
influential people spoke
‘castellano’ while ‘valenciano’ was the language of the
lower classes.
Q
And why did the
bourgeoisie
here
adopt ‘castellano’ and
not in Cataluña?
A
Because here there
was a much closer relationship with Castilla than
in Cataluña. Valencian
agriculture and products
made by businesses related
to this sector, were traded
with Castilla. Furthermore, in Valencia during the
16th and 17th centuries,
there was a change in the
aristocracy itself as the
heirs of many noble houses
came from Castilla. This
‘Castellanisation’ was very
evident in the 19th century
which meant that the ‘Valencian language’ – which
is what this variation of
catalan was called – was
gradually dying out until a
very minority group called
for it to be revived at the
start of the 20th century.
For a long time, this group
was forced to campaign for
its resurrection according
to laws laid down by Cataluña and other regions where
catalan was spoken. All this
caused less conflict than indifference because the majority of people were only
interested in ‘castellano’.
Q
And when did the
language start to become a controversial issue?
A
During the 1960s there was a brutal reaction when this minority
of people calling for the
revival of the ‘valenciano’
started to gain influence
in the university world and
sectors of the Valencian
bourgeoisie. Those who
did not want these young
people to acquire decisionmaking power started to
spread the idea that behind
the campaign was a spirit
of Catalan imperialism,
which apart from a handful
of anecdotal exceptions has
never been proven, that suggested that Valencia was
going to be colonised in a
political sense by the Catalans.
This strategy proved to be
hugely successful with the
voters. It created an antagonism towards not only anything to do with Cataluña,
It is undeniable,
therefore, that
there was not a
Catalan kingdom

but also towards those who
did not consider themselves
Catalan but Valencian, and
who were merely arguing
that the same language was
spoken in both regions. It
also caused a rejection of
Valencia University where
this view was defended by
philologists.
Q
Why does Valencia
University
run
a
course entitled ‘catalan
philology’?
Because it is actually
the only thing that can
be done from a scientific
point of view. It is the same
curriculum that is taught
in language departments
across Europe: a catalan
philology exists, with a
number of variations, and
the fact that it has been established that the two languages are the same, despite attempts to prove that
they are not, actually has
nothing to do with whether
someone feels more or less
Valencian.
A
Q
And the political
left has become embroiled in this conflict?
A
I believe that at some
stage, in response to
such direct attacks, the
left defended the use of
‘valenciano’ by stressing
the region’s links with Cataluña, which, to a certain
extent, was quite logical.
But I believe that for a long
time now, both within the
university and in the poli-
THE FINAL THROES OF THE CONFLICT
Valencia University is still a victim of attacks on the part of those who are keen to keep the linguistic conflict alive. A slogan painted
during the last academic year on the window of the university bookshop reveals this – ‘we want books in the Valencian language, not in
Catalan’, it states.
During the 1960s
some politics
pretended that
behind the revival
of “valenciano”
there was
a Catalan
imperialism
strategy and was
not true
tical worlds, the situation
has been presented in such
a way that it is as though a
miracle has occurred: these days we write using the
same laws as the Catalans,
but although the two languages are both written the
same, we call ours something different: ‘valenciano’. Any reader will realise
that the grammar systems
are the same, the spelling
and the orthography are the
same, and that there only
minor variations. This sensation predominates even
among those who propose
such a totally artificial posture as secessionism, which
means the creation of a new
language based on a totally
made-up grammar and orthography, with the aim of
differentiating it completely
from catalan. But there have
been some truly ridiculous
episodes along the way.
Q
A
Can you give us any
examples?
During my time as
Principal of University
of Valencia, using the word
‘nosaltres’ (or ‘nosotros’ in
castellano’), instead of ‘mosatros’, widely used in rural
villages, meant that, the following day, you would be all
over the papers accused of
selling out to Catalan imperialism. Something as ridiculous as this could spark a
tremendously antagonistic
campaign based on accusations of political ‘Catalanism’. To speak ‘valenciano’
correctly, for people who did
not speak ‘valenciano’ at
home but learned it for reasons of political correctness,
was seen as just cause for a
lynching. There have been
much worse cases, including
the placing of a bomb at the
university - in the cloister
where we are now sitting.
Valencia mayors and Principals have been insulted and
threatened.
Q
Did these more violent incidents coincide with the transition
towards democracy?
A
Yes, because what lay
behind all that belligerence was an attempt to
ensure that the transition
towards democracy in Valencia would not be hegemonised by the left. It was used
to gain popular support for
parties representing the political right.
Q
Did you expect such
a resounding victory
for the right at the recent
elections?
A
I spend my time studying the past and am
usually wrong about the fu-
ture. The truth is that I was
not expecting such a serious
defeat for the left but, intuitively, there was something in
the air that made me think
that people are prepared to
settle for what they have.
Perhaps because much has
been made of the current
economic situation which,
in reality, is a result the PP
can claim little credit for. On
top of this, it must be added
At the last
elections, the
left were unable
to present a
credible
alternative
that the left were unable to
present a credible alternative. They gave the impression of being in favour of
change. However, left-wing
leaders failed to convince
me that they were really capable of communicating a
credible critique of what it
is that they believe the right
is doing badly, while at the
same time recognising what
it is doing well.
Q
A
What is wrong with
the Valencian left?
It has not understood
the nature of the drastic changes that have taken
place. It is failing to engage
on subjects that could dramatically increase their le-
vel of electoral support. It is
bogged down and has even
lost some of its core supporters.
N
TOURISM AT VALENCIA UNIVERSITY
Q
Do you have any explanation for this
lack of connection?
A
They are repeating arguments which may
have been relevant in the
past, but no longer work.
There are things that would
require time to analyse and
discuss and I think that
herein lies one of the left’s
main deficiencies: leftist
parties should be where
issues get debated. Where
they are discussed and new
people, young people, can
be heard, participate and be
given leading roles. Be allowed to lead not becuse they
are young but because they
propose really new ideas.
There is a certain immobility, which is precisely
the opposite of what there
should be in a leftist party.
There is a spirit of conservatism within the established ranks of the left because
they fear that if this should
happen, their futures may
be compromised as a result.
I believe that this is blocking
the left at the moment.
Electoral success, which
would require a change of
strategy, a new message,
new faces in every sense of
the word, is being sacrificed
to a selfish attitude consisting of the view that: ‘I am
here, I think I’m right and
all this will go away’. They
always blame others, and
are blind to their own responsibilities.
Now that we know a
bit more about this honourable institution, the
University of Valencia
could also be a popular
tourist attraction. If you
go there of your own volition we recommend
you visit three places –
the Rectory building on
Avenida Blasco Ibáñez,
where different faculties forming what was
the first campus of the
university – now practically in the city centre
– is found; the old university building (created
by Pere Compte in 1498)
on C/ de la Nave; and
the botanical gardens,
which is located in the
University of Valencia
just at the foot of the Torres de Quart, one of the
oldest access points into
the city.
The Rectory building is
designed in an pre-rationalist, expressionist
style, and was the work
of architect Mariano
Peset, brother of Joan
Baptista Peset Aleixandre, the republican rec-
tor who was shot to death
by Franco’s supporters in
the Civil War.
The old university headquarters, on C/ La Nave,
deserves a longer visit
and is, habitually, the
venue for some interesting exhibitions. Three
magnificent displays will
be held in the autumn dedicated to the history of
the second Republic – one
of these, which opens
on September 29, will
include the eye-catching
posters painted by Josep
Renau for the Republic.
A perfectly-organised volunteer programme allows groups of up to eight
people to enjoy a guided
tour through the building and the exhibitions,
totally free of charge,
and also in English if required.

Embarrassing secrets
Most of us have skeletons in our closets and aspects of our
past of which we prefer not to speak.
Like my little brother who was caught short between
service stations on a coach trip, although fortunately a mate
of his had an empty Lucozade bottle to hand; or my mother
who, out of her depth during a highbrow conversation
on the technicalities of the motor trade at a dinner party,
announced out of the blue that she knew what FIAT stood
for. My dad, who’d told her it was ‘first in all trials’ as a
wind-up some years earlier, has never been forgiven and she
has never forgotten the raucous laughter at her expense.
Sorry to disappoint you, but I’m not planning on revealing
my murky secrets to you lot. My dignity prevents me from
broadcasting all along the coast from Valencia to Murcia
that one of my favourite films is an Anglia TV adaptation
of Jilly Cooper’s Riders; that I’d sooner shell out 200 euros
for a pair of Pons Quintana boots just because of the name
than buy an identical pair from the market for a tenner;
that my dad’s nickname for me is Sugar Plum, or that my
three cats get called ‘honeypuss’ when they’re behaving
themselves (although admittedly that’s not often).
Yet I am proud to release one of the most cringeworthy
skellies in my closet – that of five sassy chicks who marked
my teens with their catchy, if rubbish, kick-ass record of
1996 that inexplicably shot to the head of the charts.
A couple of weeks back the cava was broken out in Casa
Kett on hearing that Mel, Mel, Geri, Victoria and Emma
had buried the hatchet and were back together for a world
tour. Having read Mrs Beckham’s autobiography (moving,
heart-string-pulling, and will have you welling up in places)
Geri’s (page-turning, funny, and will see you in outraged
awe at her shameless, devil-may-care antics) and Mel B’s
(interesting, if not so memorable) I feel I know these girls
as though they were old schoolmates. I own every single
one of their albums as a group and as solo artists, and a
lump still rises to my throat when I hear 1998’s Viva forever
(and no, it’s not one of the sprouts in my dad’s curry);
hearing Ginger’s appalling Spanish in Mi chico latino
always conjures up memories of heady summer days bodyboarding in the Med, and Mel C’s Northern star album
is the only music CD in English that has ever become
irretrievably welded to my stereo.
Great news for fans whose towns The Spice Girls will not
have time to visit on their tour – the goddesses of Girl
Power have volunteered to do one more venue, voted for by
the public. Of course, I’ve already cast my ballot slip and am
crossing my fingers they will shortly head for Valencia.
Yes, it’s nothing to be proud of, being a Spice Girl fan, but
I believe the power of music is in the memories it holds
for us. Spain’s chart-busting 1980s band, Mecano, taught
me Spanish – warbling along to their deep and meaningful
lyrics in my Fiat Panda whilst stuck in commuter traffic
every day, without having a clue what they were on about,
gave me the idea to purchase a Linguaphone kit and a verb
book to find out. Without Mecano, I wouldn’t be living here
today. Equally, Chris Rea’s Road to Hell reminds me of my
father – and of the N-332 from Oliva to Gandia – and that daft
Romanian track Dragostea din tei revives my first summer
in my home town here in Spain given that it was constantly
blaring out of the windows of boy racers’ bangers.
Above all, however, The Spice Girls are evidence of very
young women pursuing their dreams against all odds,
enjoying their jobs immensely and keeping a friendship
alive for more than a decade despite setbacks and attempts
to poison it. Perhaps their music has the same effect on you
as a fingernail on a blackboard, but otherwise, their story
is rather inspiring and a great act to follow.

Dear thinkSPAIN|today
It was reported in your
July 13-19 issue of
thinkSPAIN|today that a
28-year old motorcyclist
lost his life on the N-332
near Benissa early on a
Sunday morning. I was
very sorry to hear about
the accident and the consequent tragic loss of such a
young life. But I also want
to warn people of the dangers of venturing out on
the N-332 between Benissa
and Calpe before noon on a
Sunday morning.
This is where the local
bikers congregate to speed
along this fascinating piece
of tarmac; to practice their
knee-scraping leandowns;
to tear past each other
at hair-raising speeds; to
perfect their wheelies; and
to show off their latest
machines, torque and acceleration. Groups of bikers wait at strategic points
in order to watch as other
racers hurtle past over and
over again.
I have witnessed people
bring their deckchairs and
camp out at a particularly
good viewpoint to watch
the boy-racers perform.
Not only is belting along
the road at breakneck
speeds dangerous, but I
have often come around a
bend and found a motorcyclist doing a slow illegal Uturn across the continuous
white line.
As a car driver, I can only
say, it is a nerve-racking and terrifying trip in
either direction as bikes
blast deafeningly past with
little warning and there is
every likelihood that at the
next bend I will encounter
a biker, at full throttle,
leaning well into my side
of the road.
This would all be fine if
the only lives these young
men (and the odd woman,
no doubt) put at risk were
their own, but half a tonne
of metal hurtling towards
your windscreen is going
to do more than just ruin
your weekend. The police
rarely get to the spot before
11am which is, of course,
why the bikers feel free
to drive in such a reckless way during the early
hours.
I do understand, I am a
biker myself, but in the UK
we got to race in special
venues, on and off-road.
Brands Hatch or Silverstone held regular events
where amateurs such as
myself could pretend for
a few hours that we were
Barry Sheen! But we would
have been quickly removed
if found behaving in the
same way on the A-25.
Only an hour’s drive from
Benissa is Cheste racetrack
near Valencia. I can only
hope they offer the same
kind of events, so that
when enough people have
been killed or injured at
this spot and the bikers
are moved on, they will
have somewhere else to go
and not just another A(or
N)-road further along the
coast.
Petrified driver,

Cascant – a true discovery
Given that I can’t live without writing about what
I like, I feel compelled to
comment this week on the
discovery of a celebrity and
his works.
I met him in Muro d’Alcoi
where he was born and
bred and still lives. We ate
in El Calvo, one of the most
traditional and dignified
restaurants in the town,
and afterwards, he showed
me his provisional possessions and the industrial
warehouse that is home to a
small miracle – the process
of wine-making. His name
is Joan Cascant, he is 46
years old, married with two
daughters, a draughtsman
by trade and with an overwhelming passion for his
country – its countryside,
its people, its language…
and its olive-oil and winemaking tradition.
It was his current business
partner and friend Salvador
Boronat who decided, on a
whim, to produce wine from
his own vineyard with the
help of one of those books
that talks you through the
process step by step. The end
result came out well and the
wine was drunk. It was no
coincidence that there are
rather a lot of residents in
Muro who make their own
wine although the invasion
of industry tends to reduce
these individuals to mere
consumers who pass more
time watching TV than
producing wine. Yet as Cascant showed me that day, in
every corner of abandoned
land in the Alcoià-Comtat
district there are vines
shooting up, like recovering
ancient traditions shoot up
in the memories of human
beings.
However, what is resuscitated demands aspiration
and inspiration, and the
new wine has to reach the
highest quality. These two
friends bought a secondhand barrel to start off with,
and a few new ones later
on, organised wine-tasting
courses, built up links with
vineyard owners in the Valencia region like Paco Calatayud and Pepe Mendoza
and, one day, just for a laugh
and completely on spec, Cascant sent an email to the
great Pope of the Priorat
wine world, José Luis Pérez
from Quatretondeta. Pérez
went to see him and even
took a gamble on forming a
new company, bringing his
sons Pau and Adrià, both oenology experts, with him.
With all that I have just
talked about I still haven’t
mentioned the most revolutionary phenomenon that
Cascant and his friend Boronat are promoting at the
moment and, if it needed a
slogan, it would be ‘the start
of the long-awaited farming
revamp’. Agriculture is not
incompatible with tourism
– in fact these two economies complement each other. Of course, as long as this
‘farming revamp’ generates
a top-quality product which
those who create it can be
proud of and which represents their traditions. And
if the public is aware of its
value, this private initiative
has already started to head
in the right direction.
El Celler la Muntanya, the
bodega owned by Cascant
and Boronat, has started a
scheme they call Microvinya, which allows owners of
small vineyards throughout the Alcoià-Comtat district to sell their produce
via contracts obtained by El
Celler, proving to them that
the grape is becoming more
and more profitable, that it
is produced in the best conditions and dignifies the ancient art of our ancestors.
The result is already on
display to all – or rather, it’s
in everyone’s palates – and
comprises wines like Almoroig 2005 (red, bottled in
June 2007 with a production
of 9,500 bottles and aged for
13 months), and the Albir
2006 (white, bottled in June
2006 with a production of
4,500 bottles and aged for
five months).
Yet Cascant has not stopped
dreaming up new ideas
and has recently created
the Elviart, in which he
attempts to bring together both wine and art. To
spread the word, a book
is already on the shelves
about these two elements
that are surprisingly close
together. To this end, as
creativity is a creature that
never sits still, El Celler
has started to produce an
olive oil of the utmost quality, D’Olives, which follows
their impeccable methods
of wine-making.
To be honest with you, the
great benefactors of the
human race are not those
who land on the moon and
mess around like kids in
elastic canvases, but those
who are able to break out
of the apathy and give us a
good wine and an excellent
olive oil.
EDITORIAL & OPINION
August 3 - August 9 2007

[email protected]
What do you talk to your friends about?
I have been meaning to
write something about
great disappointments for
the past few days, but have
yet to manage it. Furthermore, I have been wondering to myself about what
I could say to my readers
that might be useful. The
contract between the writer
of an opinion column and
the readers is subtle, but
must be respected. Like all
contracts, there are two parties: the reader knows and
accepts that the columnist
writes about things that
concern him or her, that the
columnist transmits something of his or her daily life
in his or her articles, and
accepts being interested by
the concerns of the other.
The columnist knows that
it is necessary to transcend
the personal to arrive at
a universal truth that the
other party, the reader, can
relate to. Well, there we are,
with me left wondering if
you are interested in great
disappointments.
So, what are life’s great
disappointments? In my
opinion, they are the ones
that occur in the context
of family life, friendship or
love. The truth is that, with
respect to disappointments,
the worst ones are those
that combine more than one
of these contexts.
The best definition I have
ever read about friendship
was written by a Moroccan
author who lives in France.
His name is Tahar Ben Jellou. It comes in the first lines
of a book entitled ‘Eulogy
to friendship’ (Elogio de la
amistad), which, as far as I
have been able to ascertain,
has never been translated
into English. One of the
same author’s books about
friendship - The last friend
- has been; by Penguin
Books. I have also read, and
can recommend, this book,
although I much prefer the
former. Ben Jelloun defines
friendship as a “religion
without God nor final judgement. Nor devil. A religion
that is not unconnected to
love. But a love where war
and hatred are forbidden,
and where silence is possible.” Friendship, according
to Ben Jelloun, is based on a
reciprocation without weak
spots, guided by the principle of respect; the respect
that we owe ourselves so
that others return it naturally.
Perhaps this is the key to
great
disappointments:
“the feeling that someone
has lost respect for you.”
The road to overcoming
this is understanding that
whomever lost respect for
you, in reality, was letting
him or herself down because friendship - like love
- is a mirror that admits no
respite: the way you treat
others is the way you treat
yourself.
I had the good fortune to
interview Tahar Ben Jelloun last year and we talked
about his concept of friendship. He has, or had, a much
more negative viewpoint
that me, and I say ‘had’,
because I now begin to understand why Ben Jelloun
defines friendship as a very
easy gift to lose. He knows,
and I have just discovered,
that when it comes to friendship, great disappointments
have no cure. Life goes on
and one forgets, but the
hole that is left will stay for
ever and become one of the
scars that will accompany
you forever. So, what can be
done? With respect to solutions, there is another book
that I wanted to talk to you
about. It is called ‘Apprenticeship in Disappointment’
(Aprendizaje de la Decepción)
by Spanish philosopher,
Félix de Azua, which has
never been translated into
English. Only one of this author’s works is available in
English; a novel entitled Diary of a humiliated man. Far
from what you may imagine,
‘Apprenticeship in Disappointment’ is anything but a
treatise on how to cope with
disappointment. In reality, it
is a compilation of articles
in which Azua deals with
several important things in
life. And this is where the
real key lies: life is like that,
learning how to cope with
disappointments and not
be bothered by them. How
to relate to the person who
disappointed you without
resentment and carry on,
in the knowledge that it is

Costa Education
Parents in general will
welcome the news that the
Generalitat Valenciana has
made school textbooks free
for first and second-grade
children from this September. Moreover, Francisco
Camps has stated his intention to push for all textbooks
to be provided by the state
in line with most of the rest
of Europe. This would seem
to be a move in the right
direction, and an attempt
to win favour with parents
who stand to receive 117 euros per student per year.
There are several codicils
that I would add to this
however. Firstly, I think it is
wrong to assume that bringing Spain into line with
the rest of Europe with regards to the cost of education, is necessarily going to
improve education per se.
When parents have a real,
financial vested interest in
their children’s education;
when it costs them in time,
effort and money, there is
more likelihood that they
will support their child as
he or she learns.
For instance, many parents
in Spain pay for tutors to assist with homework and extra curricular subjects, contribute hugely to the costs
of university, and will have
searched for appropriate
educational books to support the learning that takes
place in school. This is not
just something that happens with wealthy Spanish families. I have neighbours in Parcent who pay
for extra tuition for their
children from the ages of
nine upwards, who cannot
afford an annual holiday,
share one car between three
adults, and whose grandparents still work their land to
make a meagre living from
just one more pointer along
the path of daily life. I do not
know if this personal reflection on friendship and disappointment is of any use
to you.
My advice is that you should
cultivate friendship through
peaceful conversation. Summer, and the long summer
evenings, is a good time for
this. Chatting to friends is
the spice of life. We should
try not to lose it, we should
cultivate it passionately because, in reality, our use of
words is what makes us human. We should talk to our
friends about divine and
human issues and enjoy
the time we spend with others while we still can. And
above all, we should accept
disappointment as normal,
without fuss, and, at the
end of the day, a great disappointment only means one
thing: that life goes on.
olives. Education is seen as
a way out of poverty, and in
particular they are learning
English as a way to make
money in future.
Secondly, providing vouchers for parents doesn’t
address the issue that
educational textbooks are
unregulated, vary in quality, and are generally overpriced by publishers.
The first year that my eldest
daughter attended school in
Spain, I followed suit with
other families in purchasing that year’s textbooks
from the Librería Públics
in Dénia. I was surprised
to discover that there was
no country-wide, nor province-wide discount for parents for school books, but
instead you were forced to
shop around and compare
offers. Even the school PTA
(APMA) were unable to
help. Every year, in the summer holidays, book stores,
chains and supermarkets
all competed with a host
of offers to tempt parents.
Eventually, I paid 60€ for
three folders of textbooks,
worksheets and a CD-ROM
that I hoped were the same
books as my daughter’s
classmates, worrying from
day one whether or not she
would fit in.
[email protected]
Fire watch
Two years later, when my
second daughter started
school the price of books
had risen to 65€ for a threeyear-old, and 85€ for a sixyear-old. Add to that the
cost of school trips, boxes
of pens and other writing
implements, sports and
musical equipment, and I
began to moan about the
Spanish system.
So, it is true that I will
breathe a sigh of relief
when I receive my daughter’s book voucher this
year, coupled with the financial help from the Town
Hall as a familia numerosa
(anyone with more than two
children) and the total costs
for all three children’s textbooks for the whole year is a
more maneageable 60€.
But I have learned a lot about
my kids’ education by participating in the purchase
of their books. I ‘ve invested
much of my own time going
through the books at home
to follow their curriculum.
I have bothered to read the
parents’ notes that come
with them (albeit written in
valenciano) and try to run
seasonal follow-up activities at weekends. I’ve been
aware of the increasing
load of homework now that
my eldest daughter is nine,
and I have been able to understand her school reports
and subject marks because
I am aware of each term’s
themes.
Would I have been so scrupulous in the UK? Has the extra struggle with language
and the pinch of paying for
her books given me added
incentive to be involved?
And will bringing Spain
in line with countries like
the UK whose education is
‘free’ also mean parents can
simply care less?
I once lived in a log cabin, off
a track snaking up a hillside
in the pine forests of British
Columbia. The house was
basic, hammered together
from the split trunks of the
trees felled to clear the land,
but it had one feature in
common with the smarter
houses dotted around, a
large bell hung on the wooden deck. This bell was a crucial part of the fire drill run
by the small community. At
the first sign of fire, the bell
would be rung continuously
and the alarm passed from
house to house. All those
able would immediately
fight the fire and if necessary evacuate their neighbours. In an area where the
woods were wild and nature
a force to be respected, fire
was a constant threat and
taken very seriously.
Fortunately I never saw a
fire in Canada and felt quite
at home when we moved to
Parcent with its pine-clad
hills. However, shortly after
we arrived here, I witnessed
a major fire on the El Carrascal range overlooking Parcent and vowed never again to
live amongst trees. I watched
the fire, standing for hours
on our village roof terrace,
hypnotised by the flames being fanned by fierce winds,
terrified by the raw power
of nature. In hours we saw
it spread, from one small
point to a line running right
across the hillsides. Every
few minutes we heard a
thundering crack as the sap
in a pine tree would explode
cascading flames into the
sky. Then the winds would
carry the flaming wood to
another tinder-dry area and
the fire’s relentless spread
continued. Out of sight the
hill was swarming with
firefighters and village men
attempting to beat out the
smaller fires; innumerable
times the helicopters buzzed
over, dipping their buckets
in the village swimming
pool, then flying right to the
heart of the fire, shrouded
in smoke. It seemed as ineffectual as firing a child’s water pistol. Night fell and still
we watched, the fire totally
in control now. Helicopters
retreated, as the fire burned
all in its path until the trees
were gone and the bare rock
of the higher slopes halted
the inferno.
The next day, Parcent was
in mourning, the sky grey
with smoke, the air bitter, the mood sombre. The
mountain was charred,
smouldering, huge swathes
of trees still standing, but a
graveyard of black, twisted
shards, shadows of their
former green glory.
Sixteen years later, nature
has worked a miracle and
the hills are green again,
only with fewer trees and
more scrubby bush cover.
However, for all those wholive near trees the danger is
here again, the combination
of lack of rain, excessive
heat and man’s negligence
or deliberate intervention
making fire an everpresent
risk. This past week there
have been two fires in Dénia and smaller incidents
in Parcent and Orba which
were swiftly dealt with.
Dénia’s chief fire officer
José Melenchón referred to
the ‘human factor’, whilst
pointing out the increased
risk posed by uncultivated
agricultural land, where the
build up of combustible material was once cleared and
now lies waiting like tinder
for a spark. Ecologists raise
darker motives, claiming
that the majority of fires
have been proved to be started intentionally, one reason
being to enable protected
forest land to to be reclassified for building.
Whatever the causes of forest fires, whether a carelessly-discarded cigarette end or
malicious intent or merely
nature’s own culling, the
threat to life and property
and the destruction of the
environment is undeniable.
We should stay vigilant this
summer, be careful with our
barbecues and waste, keep
an eye on the trees, report
any signs of fire immediately and hope that for another
year we can be spared the
trauma and destruction of
nature’s darkest force.

Making sense of fiction
Since the success of Driving
Over Lemons publishers have
lapped up stories of expats
living in Spain, and writing
retreats for aspiring authors
now abound
By Penny Lapenna
There is nothing more enjoyable than sitting down
to a fresh sheet of paper
to capture an idea that has
been buzzing around your
brain. And if you are fortunate enough to do this
in a stunningly beautiful
location, where the breeze
is scented with flowers,
and surrounded by likeminded individuals, who
think discussing the meaning of ‘serendipity’ or the
life cycle of bees is equally
facinating, then get out and
attend a writers retreat in
Spain.
Expats in particular often carry with them the
memories of their lives in
their home country, and
writing can provide a medium through which to express this creativity. There
are specific retreats set
up where you can attend
courses run by famous authors or poets, groups run
by writing enthusiasts, or
just accomodation set up to
appeal to the writers needs,
with access to computers,
libraries, book doctors, and
peace and quiet.

Almàssera Vella
www.oldolivepress.com
Set in Relleu, a mountain
village in Alicante province, is the Almàssera Vella
Centre which runs residential and holiday courses as
well as workshops in Creative Writing, Photography,
Painting and Walking. The
residential courses and
workshops in literature of
all kinds are led by internationally respected writers and poets such as Mimi
Khalvati, Matthew Sweeney, Mark Doty and Judith
Barrington, from the Poetry School in London. Low
season rates are also available for personal writing
retreats in the Casa Rural
annexe at 69 Carrer de la
Mare de Déu del Miracle.
Relleu is at the southern
part of the mountainous
area of the province of Alicante known as the Marina
Baixa. This comprises a
rugged complex of limestone mountains including
the highest in the province
‘Aitana’ (1,558m) and the
most dramatic: ‘Puigcampana’. In the high valleys
there is ‘secano’ cultivation, mostly almond orchards, olive groves and,
lower down, plantations of
lemon and orange trees.
The courses are run by
Christopher North and his
wife Marisa Lillo-Verdú,
who cooks local Alicante
specialities.
“We started building in
2000 literally on the first
day of the new millennium. Our inaugural writing
course, ‘The Poet’s Notebook’, was run in May 2002
and we now have a regular
programme of creative
writing days and weekends as well as week-long,
all-inclusive,
residential
writing courses, mountain
walking, photography and
painting courses. In 2004
our accommodation facilities were extended with
the opening of the casa
rural annexe, opposite the
Almàssera Vella. The annexe is now available for
writer’s and artist’s retreats, enjoying tranquility
and mountain walks from
the front door.”
Visitors also have access to

A retreat or residency experience in Alcázar offers
an opportunity to share the
spacious, beautifully simple home of Irish artist,
Meg Robinson, in a remote,
traditional Spanish village
in Las Alpujarras, southern Spain. Las Alpujarras
has been described as the
part of Andalucía where
north Africa meets Europe,
but is neither one nor the
other. Rather it is steeped
in a combination of Pagan,
Catholic and Moorish customs.
Alcázar is a tiny mountain village with barely 75
inhabitants, an hour and
fifteen minutes by car from
Granada, in the middle
of the Contraviesa mountain range, which face the
high peaks of the Sierra
Nevada. On Thursdays the
nearest town of Orgiva has
a colourful market, but the
tranquil rural atmosphere
has meant that Alcázar has
become a magnet to a multitude of artists, writers,
musicians, dancers, and
healers from around the
world.
If you are budget conscious
and have a skill to trade
(massage, reflexology, kinesiology, computer graphics
or vegetarian /vegan cooking, etc) price deals are negotiable.

The Llano de la Luz retreat

can be booked to provide
treatments such as massage and reflexology. The

the Moorish vilage of Comares. Comares is one of
the highest ‘white villages’
in Andalucía and retains
its original Moorish features. The retreat is outside the village, about 20
minutes walking distance
and the nearest airport is
Málaga, about an hour’s
drive away.
The writing retreats here
are not focused on teaching. Instead, writers have
their own private rooms
and writing terrace area
and are able to focus on
their writing in a comfortable and peaceful setting.
The informal support of
the retreat facilitator and
other writers is available,
plus nearby holistic therapies and beauty treatments
including reflexology, and

on writing, dictionaries,
Spanish books, magazines
and journals and a wireless
broadband internet service,
but guests must bring their
own laptops with appropriate peripherals. Note: there
is no technical support at
the retreat, although you
can access a printer, and
there is a spare laptop for
those who just wish to access emails.
There is also access to a

COSTA DE LA LUZ
In the Write Light
www.inthewritelight.com
Fawlty Fincas B&B farm is
the venue for In the Write
Light workshops, a location apparently selected
because of its tranquil location in a lush valley two
kilometres outside Tarifa
and for the simple way of
life it offers. In their own
words, Fawlty Fincas offers:
“A private and self-sufficient farm hidden away in
the hills behind the town
– the polar opposite of urban living.
Every aspect of the farm is
designed to work harmoniously with the land. Vegetables are grown organically; goats, chickens and
a donkey graze freely; electricity is provided by solar
panels, while a generator
and waste-water irrigate
the land.”
Classes are held in the adjacent large salon. Thick
stone walls keep the room
cool in the morning sun
and
participants
will
have plenty of time to explore the varied landscape
around the farm or to simply sit and write.
A selection of meals will be
served, made up of ethnic
vegetarian cooking, a speciality of the host, Carole.
Since Tarifa is an old fishing town located at the
southernmost tip of Spain
on the Costa de la Luz, its
proximity provides an ideal source of inspiration for
anyone with a jaded palate.
The town attracts surfers and adrenalin junkies
along with an international population of artists,
musicians and alternative
travellers seeking the natural lifestyle that Tarifa
offers.
The hosts at Fawlty Fincas
describe the experience:
“Today, psychodelic doorways and exotic window
displays
signal
ethnic
clothing and crafts shops,
Indian and Moroccan furniture shops, street-side cafes, funky bars and chilled
bistros.
They spice up the picturesque old town (‘casco antiguo’ in Spanish); with a
labyrinth of snaking cobbled alleyways and whitewashed façades that salute
the endurance of the region’s Moorish heritage.
The peaks of Morocco’s Rif
Mountains shimmer and
beguile across the Straits.
A nearby-submerged island is believed by some
archaeologists to be the
true site of the mythical
Atlantis.”
CANARY ISLANDS
Finca el Quinto Writers’
Retreat
www.tenerifecountryescape.com/eventspage
Located in Tenerife, in an
area of unspoiled countryside just below the small
mountain village of Tigaiga (200m above sea level),
is La Finca El Quinto. This
15-acre organic fruit and
arable farm sits within a
beautiful, peaceful valley,
surrounded by mountain
ridges on the island and
overlooking the Atlantic
Ocean. It is about 2km
from the small town of Los
Realejos, west of Puerto de
la Cruz.
At Finca el Quinto, the
support of authors-in-residence is offered; experts
who are available for consultations all year round.
They can help in various
ways, whether to recommend agents, prepare a
proposal, hone a screenplay, or give a detailed critique of work. A number
of successful authors give
talks and run workshops
between May and September, on popular subjects
such as crime fiction, romantic fiction and the literary novel.
There are also seminar facilities if you wish to bring
your whole writing club,
or conduct your own workshops. Groups receive free
use of a modern, well-appointed seminar room (for
up to 30 persons).
Finca El Quinto was set
up in 1987 by Helmut and
Roswitha Köllmann who
moved to Tenerife to become self-sufficient and
enjoy an organic lifestyle
with their five children.
Growing around the cottages and flats, there are fruit
trees such as mango, papaya, avocado and banana
and herbs for the kitchen.
The holiday homes are

Bajo gorge).
GETTING IT
WRITE!
With any writers retreat
there are a few steps that
will help you maximise the
potential on offer.
Do take work-in-progress,
whether to share with a
professional writer or with
fellow writers, as it can be
a starting point for useful
growth.
Be prepared to abandon old
habits or rules of writing
and refresh your approach.
Trying styles or genres of
writing that are unfamiliar can often bring out surprising results.
Be aware of your own
needs – for instance if you
prefer to write in solitude,
or need the stimulation of
others, check that the retreat is suitable.
If you intend to seek publication, present yourself
professionally and make
the most of contacts or
opportunities that may be
on offer. Some retreats offer the services of a ‘book
doctor’ or editor included
in the price, and many will
share email addresses for
useful follow-up support.
By maintaining contact
with other course members
you can create a writing
support network and share
publishing opportunities.
The Writers and Artists

magazines, television and
radio, online resources,
prizes and festivals. Indispensable.
Still need convincing?
Katherine Burke, a Travel
& Lifestyle Journalist was
impressed with the Llano
de la Luz retreat.
“I arrived in Spain frazzled
and frustrated – with only
two weeks to go before giving up full-time work and
starting up again as a freelance.
Between tea-breaks I talked to the three other women writers at the retreat,
I read and wrote (a bit)
and stared at the mountains (a lot), and went for
the odd stroll to the nearest village. The four of us
had coffee at the English
bar, we went to a yoga and
meditation class, got tiddly
at the Mayor’s restaurant,
zig zagged home from the
village by torch-light, and
listened to fiddle music at
a party hosted by some local musicians.
Despite the relaxed pace
– or more likely because
of it – I finished a short
story, started others and
did some useful reading.
More importantly I felt a
tide of negativity wash
away. I found I could think
clearly about the future – I
made improved plans for
next year. I’m going back
to the retreat again in May
and somehow I know that
won’t be for the last time.”
Jacqueline was a gracious
and warm-hearted hostess, driving me in and out
of the village of Comares
– a wonder of labyrinthine
white streets and Moorish
architecture – and even organising Spanish lessons
with a delightful local
teacher.
Vivienne Vermes, from
Paris, talks about her impression of the Llano de la
Luz retreat.
Vivienne has to date published three collections of
her poetry, and her short
fiction has appeared in,
among others, “New Writing Nine”, “Paris-Atlantic” and The Mail on Sunday.”
“El Llano de la Luz is indeed a place of light. I
stayed in a room with
stunning mountain views,
with my own balcony, and
finally found the peace
to embark on my writing
project.
An unforgettable time, in
an oasis of Andalucian
beauty and peace.”

August 3 - August 9 2007
Visit gorgeous Guadalest
but it’s true and the views
are fantastic. You will reach
a cemetery where some of
the graves are in bad repair
and it can be sad to see the
forgotten headstones but
it is refreshing to see that
there is no litter or disrespectful graffiti, despite the
number of tourists that visit the place daily.
Its turquoise reservoir and
belltower glinting in the
sun, Guadalest is the most
visited village in Spain
By Jade Holden
As you journey inland to
tiny Guadalest (population:
250 inhabitants) the busy
city scenes quickly fade
away and you are faced instead with mountain and
sea views, orange and lemon
trees and a sense of pure nature, interrupted only by the
road you’re driving on and
the odd café. As you continue to wind your way through
the mountains you will soon
ARCHWAY ENTRANCE
be able to make out Guadalest’s iconic bell tower sitting
politely on the top of the frequently photographed rock
face. As a child this moment
would always excite me as I
knew that seeing the cubelike structure meant that we
were near our destination.
As you walk into the village
you are greeted with small
shops selling local produce
and souvenirs. You will also
pass a small restaurant and
the Belén Museum (which
no doubt you will have already seen signposts for).
This museum is full of intricate doll’s houses and, on
the top floor, a whole village
scene in miniature. Despite
the price tag it is well worth
a visit because the craftsmanship is truly beautiful.
To the right you will see a
small children’s playground
with a few picnic benches,
if you have come with children it might be an idea to
relax here for a while and
take in the picturesque scenery while they play on the
swings and climbing frame.
After your relaxing break,
return to the path and begin
your walk to the main part
of the village. This part of
the journey involves walking up through a cave-like
archway where, at some
point, you will have a determined cameraman jump out
at you – he won’t go away
unless he gets the chance to
snap you so just smile and
walk on (if you wish, you
can purchase the pictures
on your way out, either
printed or on a keyring.) On
this level are more shops,
cafés and museums as well
as the new church. The locals don’t mind you looking
BELÉN MUSEUM: Intricately crafted displays
Returning from here you
will walk down cobbled steps
and go through a large metal turnstile – this is to stop
those who have not paid the
entrance fee from visiting
the cemetery. This system
is relatively new (as is the
charge) but I don’t begrudge
paying it as the views are
worth it and the money goes
towards the upkeep of the
old house and cemetery. You
will now find yourself back
in the square and, after the
long walk, probably ready
for lunch in one of the lovely cafés or restaurants.
When you leave the upper
level of the town and pass
back through the archway you will see that you
can head right to more
shops, cafés and museums.
Amongst these museums
is the old torture museum
– those of you that enjoyed
the dungeons will love this
place, it’s full of old torture
devices and explanations of
how they were once used. I
recommend that you visit
here because it truly is interesting.
SHOPS AND MUSEUMS: The tourist heart of Guadalest is well-frequented
around the beautiful church
but they don’t appreciate
people loudly interrupting
the ambiance and being disrespectful in their place of
worship. Moving on you will
find more shops and cafés
and (if they are open) the
old dungeons! The dungeons
are still dark and spooky but
at the same time very interesting for both adults and
children. While you’re here,
don’t forget to look over the
wall at the marvelous turquoise reservoir, this reservoir provides water for all
the towns in the area but the
thing that impresses onlookers the most is it’s unusual
EMBALSE DE GUADALEST: The unnaturally blue waters are reknowned
ROCKY PROMONTORY
colour and the way it actually glistens in the light
– like it has been digitally
enhanced or animated. Also
on this level of the town is
an old house that one can
explore (for a small fee of
course). The house belonged
to the wealthy Orduña family and has been made to
look almost exactly how it
did when it was inhabited
years and years ago. After
touring this house you can
proceed up some metal steps
to higher ground. This is the
closest you will get to the
white bell tower, believe it
or not, although you pass it
on the way up! It is difficult
to believe that you are now
higher than the bell tower
you saw earlier from the car
Another place to visit while
you are in Guadalest is the
beautiful swimming pool. It
is cheap to visit and could be
a day out all of its own. The
pool is wonderfully clean
and there is also a children’s
pool with a slide. The water
is surrounded by grass and
fat palm trees which provide perfect shade (and look
a lot nicer than umbrellas).
As you lie back on a sun
lounger or float in the water
you will see the spectacular
mountain face rising above
you and eagles and other
birds flying overhead.
This is a truly magnificent
sight and one of the most
relaxing activities I have
ever indulged in. Despite
the hordes that visit Guadalest every year, it retains a
unique ambience and is not
to be missed.

From the top of the world
A visit to Teide – the highest
mountain in Spain is but a
three-hour flight away and a
day trip hike to the top.
By Cornelia Muller
The Pico de Teide on Tenerife is the third largest
volcano on Earth. Like
Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea,
the first and second largest
volcanoes on Hawaii, it is a
shield volcano, a gently sloping volcano in the shape of
a flattened dome and built
almost exclusively of lava
flows. It is estimated that the
mountain is about 5 million
years old. It is now a Natural Park that covers nearly
20,000 hectares. Nearly all of
it is open to the public, only
the ascent to the very summit and the areas around the
craters and active vents are
restricted for obvious reasons. It is possible to obtain
a walking permit to climb
the summit, which is available from the administrative
offices of the Natural Park
in the capital Santa Cruz de
Tenerife or via email.
Driving up to the volcano
is quite spectacular, since
you pass through various
types of vegetation and see
relatively young flows of
lava and the peak in its most
beautiful setting. Depending from which side of the
island you start your journey you will have different
impressions. If you take the
approach from the North,
you will start the journey in
a small fishing village or in
the second largest town, in
Puerto de la Cruz and then
follow the bends of the road
uphill, most likely through
a thick pine forest and often clouds. As you continue
your ascent, the sky will
open up and offer you the
first beautiful view of the
mountain, with the almost
perfect cone that nearly all
year round has a few streaks
of snow. On the other hand,
if you start climbing from
the south side, you will see
less vegetation as this part
of the island is much more
arid, but the views will be
no less spectacular.
The summit of the volcano rises to an elevation
of 3,715 metres. However,
about 150,000 years ago, a
large explosive eruption occurred, creating Las Cañadas, a large caldera at just
over 2,000 m altitude, 15 km
across east-west and 10 km
north-south. A caldera is
a volcanic feature formed
by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption.
The word ‘caldera’ comes
from the Spanish language,
meaning cauldron.
From this level it is easy to
reach the summit itself, the
Pico de Teide. Only one road
leads across the caldera and
passes the cable car, teleférico, carrying the tourists to
the top, where it is possible
to walk a restricted area of
about one square kilometre. If you want to explore
further you need to acquire
a special permit, which is
free but has to be arranged
in advance at the administrative offices of the Natural Park.
On your way to the cable
car station you pass several
interesting spots. One not
to miss are Los Roques de
García, a rock formation
that was created by eruptions, when stones and
lava were spewed out of
a crater. Another one are
Los Azulejos, these rocks
are covered in sulphur and
copper and show unusual
colours, vaguely reminding you of tiles – azulejos.
You also pass the Montaña
Blanca, which is whitish as
its name indicates, and the
Montaña Mostaza, which
has a mustard yellow tint
as the name suggests.
The caldera is one of the
largest ones in the world.
Following various eruptions, it has been filled
with several layers of lava,
stones and ash.
CABLE CAR: 1500m altitude in an eight-minute journey
PICO DE TEIDE: View from the caldera to the summit at 3,715 metres
The trip in the cable car
takes about 10 minutes
and costs 20 euros and
will render most visitors
speechless as with every
metre the cabin climbs
the views become more
and more spectacular. It
ends 200 metres below the
summit, which has to be
climbed on foot. At the top
only a small area is accessible to the public, however,
the small trip around the
peak is tiring as the air is
thin, but worthwhile as it
offers more stunning views
over the entire island, the
Atlantic Ocean and on good
days to the neighbouring
islands. Looking south, you
see the remnants of an old
caldera wall that has now
been surrounded by younger lava flows.
The volcano is currently
dormant, having last erupted in 1909 from the subsidiary vent of Chinyero on
the west slope. Since the
island was settled in 1402,
other significant eruptions
occurred in 1706, and 1798
which destroyed the town
and principle port of Garachico, plus several smaller
villages. The summit has
a number of small active
fumaroles, openings which
emit steam and gases such
as carbon dioxide, sulphur
dioxide and other gases.
Further eruptions are considered likely in the future.
From 2003, there has been a
seismic crisis at the volcano, which may be indicative
of magma rising into the
edifice. There are rumours
that the Park authorities
consider the closing of the
park if there may be a risk
to the visitors.
A HIKER’S PARADISE
In 2007, it was named a
World Heritage Site by
UNESCO, and for the active
walker who likes hiking it
is a fantastic experience to
walk to the top.
The path is well within the
capacity of any hill walker,
without any scrambling
being involved. The only
difficulties are lack of oxygen (50% of sea level value
at summit) and summer
heat. Long trousers, water,
a fleece and lightweight
waterproof jacket should
be carried regardless of
the season. In winter, additional safety equipment
is required, including very
dark sun glasses to avoid
snow blindness and a warm
layer. In February, dawn
temperature at the base of
the mountain can be -1ºC
and only 5ºC at the summit
at noon.
If climbing Teide in hot
weather, I recommend being on the hill before dawn,
to avoid being caught by the
sun low down on the mountain. This approach gives
the bonus of watching the
sun rise over the national
park. Allow 5 hours for the
journey one way. The total
ascent from Los Roques to
the top is 1,418 metres!
FROM THE SUMMIT: View to La Gomera
ROUTE
A good point of departure
is Los Roques. The path
starts as a jeep track (closed
to public) to the east of a
prominent mirador. Signs
and a large map mark the
start. Keep to the track on
an easy gradient, zigzagging up past the “eggs of
Teide” (large black rocks
hurled from the volcano
mouth) until signs indicate
the start of the footpath
which now leaves the pumice slopes and ascends the
edge of a lava flow until being eventually forced onto
the lava itself. Once on the
lava you will be glad of the
well engineered path across
the uneven surface. Keep
climbing up past the refuge
on its left (west) side until
you meet the mirador path
just below the summit. Turn
left onto the mirador path.
Now you will encounter
tourists coming up with the
cable car. When you reach
the teleférico top station in a
few minutes you will see the
summit path on your right
just before the building, the
start guarded by a rope and
a large, stern ranger. Once
N
your permit and passport
have been inspected you
will be allowed onto the
‘Telesforo Bravo’ path to the
summit. The path climbs
steeply up the summit cone
of yellow rocks ending on
the lip of the crater. You
may continue on from here
anti-clockwise round the
crater, stepping over small
fumaroles venting scalding sulphurous vapours,
to about half way where a
length of rope indicates the
section of the summit being
preserved from all erosion.
The views in all direction
are spectacular.
When you have had enough
of the views and retrace
your steps to the teleférico,
the guard will return your
permit as a souvenir and
you have the choice of walking back down or taking the
cable car. The cable car is
a good option if the day is
becoming hot but bear in
mind you must take care in
returning to your car along
the road. There is a bar on
the way to reward yourself
for your effort and to marvel at the summit you have
climbed.

Q
My husband suffered
a
stroke
recently and his mental
health is deteriorating.
Is it possible to prepare
an enduring power of
attorney in Spain?
A
It goes without saying that every adult
has the right to manage
his or her own money and
affairs.
It is a fact of life that a person’s ability to do so may
reduce as they get older,
or suffer from a stroke or
other illness.
Whether the person’s ability is impaired by illness,
disability or an accident
there are a number of
steps one can take in order
to prepare for this.
A power of attorney is
without doubt one of the
most straightforward and
effective means of lightening the burden which
might otherwise be placed
on family members.
Where a person has assets
in both the UK and Spain
it is worthwhile considering granting a separate
power of attorney in each
country.
My business partner is
a Spanish abogado and
I mention this since it is
essential that any such
issue be looked at from the
perspective of both legal
systems.
Enduring power
of attorney (EPA)
An EPA is a legal process
in which you, the ‘donor’,
give the legal right to one
or more people, the ‘attorneys’, to manage your
financial affairs and property. This power can come
into effect immediately,
and has the same status
as an ordinary power of
attorney. This means that
your attorneys can manage
part or all of your financial affairs for you, or you
can continue to manage
them yourself while you
are able to and hand over
responsibility later. The
difference between an EPA
and an ordinary power of
attorney is that an ordinary power of attorney
is rendered invalid if the
donor becomes mentally
incapable, whereas an EPA
remains effective, providing the necessary steps are
taken.
If you know someone
who might become mentally incapable in the
near future (they may
have suffered a stroke or
have been diagnosed with
Alzheimer’s disease, for
example) it is strongly
advisable to act now. This is
now even more important
than ever as the English
EPA is being phased out in
October with the introduction of ‘lasting powers’.
The difference
between the UK
and Spain
The EPA is an English
term, although I have discussed the issue at length
with a Spanish notary and
can arrange for a similar
power to be granted in
Spain.
The
main
difference
between the UK and Spain
is that the English EPA
must be registered by the
nominated attorneys with
the public guardianship
in the UK office once the
donor becomes mentally
incapable.
There is no direct equivalent in Spain, however, and
for this reason it is very
important that the people
appointed as attorneys are
trusted – at least as far as
you can throw them, but
ideally a great deal further. A professional person who is regulated by a
professional body is likely
to be the safest option.
Attorney powers
It is important to consider
what authority you wish
to give your attorney(s).
Irrespective of whether
we are talking about Spain
or the UK, it is possible to
grant:
A general authority, which
allows an attorney to carry
out any transactions on
your behalf that you are
legally able to delegate;
A more limited authority to deal with certain
aspects of your property
and affairs, as detailed by
you on the EPA form.
Both the general and more
limited authority can be
qualified by certain conditions or restrictions.
You can also appoint different attorneys to have
different responsibilities,
but it is advisable to keep
arrangements as simple as
you can.
The kinds of activities an
attorney can carry out on
your behalf include signing cheques and withdrawing money from savings accounts; buying or
selling shares or houses,
and using your assets to
finance your residential or
nursing care.
First steps
If you are considering
making an EPA, it is advisable to seek independent
legal advice from a solicitor. It may then be a good
idea to call a family meeting in order to explain why
you are taking this course
of action.
Whatever you do, make
sure that you never sign
any document unless you
fully understand its content and the implications
of signing.
I hope the above is useful, and please feel free
to give either myself or
Carlos Baos a call on 96

you wish to discuss the

Q
We are purchasing a
property from a man
who has not registered
the deeds in his name.
Can we force him to do
so before purchasing the
property from him?
Accidentally we found
out that the owner of the
property we are purchasing has not registered
the deeds. In our original contract it states that
he is the full owner and
that the property is free
of debts. This contract
was signed in the presence of an estate agent.
Now we also know that
he failed to pay the
amounts stated in his
contract with the previous owner and only
paid the outstanding balance when the previous
owner threatened to sell
the property to another
person. This happened
after we had signed our
contract with the seller.
We have also found out
that he does not intend
to register; he wants to
pass the title from the
previous guy to us, thus
saving several thousand pounds in taxes.
As yet, he does not know
that we know this and is
still under the assumption that we think he has
the title. We feel that he
is deliberately misleading us and are very angry.
What can we do?
A
The situation you
describe is complicated since the final aim is the
purchase of the property
and the registration in your
name. This is possible but
some difficulties may arise
as the current registration
procedures require of some
documents to be in the name
of the vendor, and it seems
that the vendor just recently purchased the property
on private documents.
This is the case, provided
there are no registered
official deeds available.
If there are registered official deeds for that property, he might be tempted
to pass title directly from
the previous owner to
you. He will never appear
in a title deed, as otherwise he will be liable for
taxes since the notary has
to inform the tax authorities about all documents
signed before him. Buying
a property only on a private document and getting
the seller to ‘jump’ him and
sell to you is unlawful, but
it can be done in practice,
and when done, the buyer/
seller in the middle saves,
or even better, evades a significant amount in taxes.
He is acting, somehow, as
an estate agent, but with
the difference that he is
‘buying’ that property. You
can force him in a court
of law to grant you ownership of the property in
a public title deed before
the notary. This should be,
however, the last option
due to time considerations.
My advice is: you should
discuss the subject with
him, and highlight that tax
authorities would be really
interested in investigating
your seller if they find out
that he is intervening in the
deal without paying taxes.
I suggest you hire the services of a solicitor as the
situation is well worth the
intervention of qualified
legal assistance.

Setting up a business in Spain
Many British people come to Spain for a change
in lifestyle as well as the obvious reasons such
as the sun, sea and sangría, and an increasing
number are deciding to start a new career or
even set up their own business here.
One of the easiest ways to own a
business here is to buy a company
that is already trading, as that way
you can avoid many of the set-up
costs, particularly if you are buying
a business that is already operating
from a premises.
Every business here in Spain has to
be properly licensed and the initial
costs, work and timescales involved
in starting a business from scratch
can often make it easier and cheaper
to buy one as a going concern.
This said, the accounting system
Getting it right from
the start
here in Spain makes it difficult
to assess the viability or track
record of a business when compared to buying one in the UK.
Many small businesses do not file
proper accounts or declare all their
income, so it is often harder to
assess the risks or the potential
of an existing business in Spain.
However, there are many things
that the prospective buyer of a
business can do to ensure their purchase is a sound investment rather
than a leap of faith!
Costings
The first thing you will need to
consider is what type of company you want to own and what
status your business should
have.
Getting expert advice from a
good business agent, lawyer or
accountant as to which type of
business status is right for you
is highly recommended. The
different options are as follows:
When starting a business here
in Spain it is imperative that
it is set up correctly right from
the start.
Before setting up your own
business anywhere you need to
carry out as much research as
possible, including the following:
Set objectives
● Decide on what it is you want
to do.
● Is that objective compatible
with your family scenario?
● What are your short, medium
and long-term business objectives?
● Are these compatible with
your personal goals?
Evaluate
● Assess your own background
and skills.
● Look at your cost base.
● What will your product cost
to buy in?
● What discount structures or
incentives are available?
● How will you fund the business?
Staff
● What staff will you need?
● How do they match with what
you want to do?
● What skills will your staff
need to have?
● Is what you are planning to
do already being done in your
target area?
● How much will you need to
pay them?
● If so, who are your potential
customers?
Premises
The competition
● Can you compete with the
competition?
● What will you be able to offer
that they cannot?
● Why will clients buy from you
and not the competition?
● Try to ascertain the size of
your potential market
● What share of that market
can you realistically aim for?
Product sales
● How much can you sell your
services or products for?
● Where will you source them
from?
● Are there alternative suppliers?
● How many can you sell in
year one, two and three?
What type of
company?
● What type and size of premises will you need?
● Look at utility costs such as
heat and light, telephone and
internet costs
● Will you need transport, cars
and so on?
You will need to think about all
of these and many more issues
and then prepare (or get help in
preparing) a business plan complete with a cash flow forecast.
This helps you to focus your
mind on what you want to do
and how you will do it, and
makes the whole process less
subjective and more objective,
as well as being able to see the
financial effects of your plan in
a simple cash-flow spreadsheet.
This is the best way to prepare
an easy-to-use working document.
Empresa individual (sometimes
referred
to
as
autónomo)
Is for a sole trader where the
business is just in one person’s
name – the equivalent of being
self-employed in the U.K.
Sociedad civil
Where the business is in several
people’s names, i.e. a partnership.
Sociedad limitada (S.L.)
A registered limited-liability
company. This is the Spanish
equivalent of a Limited Liability
Company (Ltd.) in the U.K.
Sociedad anónima (S.A.)
A large company with registered
shareholders and a minimum
amount of capital for trading.
This is the Spanish equivalent
of a Public Liability Company
(plc) in the U.K.
Making it legal
Another fundamental part of
starting a business is registering with the local town hall for
an opening licence (Licencia de
apertura). This is necessary in
order to register your business
with the authorities in the local
area, and defines what your
business is and how it trades.
You also have to register with
the Spanish tax authorities
(Agencia Tributaria) in order to
pay the appropriate tax on your
business activities. The next
stage is to register for seguridad social payments. This is an
income tax-style contribution
to the state in return for inclusion within and treatment from
the Spanish health system and
State pension scheme.
Once again, all of this process is best organised through a
good business agent, lawyer or
accountant, who should be able
to offer you a complete package to include everything you
need, along with the bi-lingual
support for those who are still
struggling with their Spanish
language skills.
It is also essential to appoint
a good Spanish accountant to
ensure you fully comply with
all that is required by the various agencies and, if necessary,
to assist with your initial business plan.
Location, location,
location
Once you have taken care of
all the legal aspects you need
to give thought to the right
location and property requirements.
You will need to undertake a
careful evaluation of space
requirements, set-up costs,
fixtures and fittings, ease of
access, storage, and so on.
Whether to buy or rent in the
early stages of a business is
an important consideration, or
whether the business can work
well from a home base (at least
initially) so that you can keep
your overhead and property
commitments as low as possible
during the start-up period. It is
also worth considering the use
of a business centre or serviced office accommodation that
may be able to offer you various
options from a virtual office to a
short-term serviced office.
Be realistic
When you are at the business
planning stage, always try to be
realistic – neither too optimistic
nor pessimistic about your projected sales. Try to keep your
overheads as low as possible
and always look at the worstcase scenario when budgeting.
Do not put all of your money
into a business venture, as it is
always wise to keep (as a guide)
at least six months’ living costs
back, to cover you whilst you
are getting your business up to
speed.
Remember
that
companies
which fail do not always run out
of business – they usually run
out of cash!

Expensive shoeboxes with outside toilets
Of Spain’s estimated 1.8
million living in rented
accommodation,
more
than 110,000 live in properties of less than 45 square
metres.
Some 40 per cent of rented
homes are in the provinces
of Madrid and Barcelona,
although there is a buoyant rental industry in the
Comunitat Valenciana
and the Murcia Region.
Flats of 35 square metres,
dubbed minipisos, built
two years ago in Valencia
brought forth a tidal wave
of criticism from the public, who say it is impossible to live in property of
this diminutive size.
However, recent reports
show that in Spain’s provincial capitals, young
people are living in flats
as small as 27 square
metres and paying phenomenal sums in rent
every month.
Christian, 25, a photographer’s assistant, told
Spanish national daily El
País that he spends 500
euros per month half his
salary on renting a flat
of 27 square metres in
Madrid’s Lavapiés neighbourhood.
This amount does not
include bills, and he had
to borrow the 6,000-euro
deposit from his brother.
Samuel, 28 and Micaela,
24, a salesman and illustrator, live in a 35-squaremetre flat in the capital’s
Lucero district and pay

which includes electricity and water. Their joint

Abdul lives with two,
sometimes three other

per month in rent. He and
his compatriots have to
share beds.
Bilbao-born Hibai, 27, a
lawyer, and his 26-yearold girlfriend, Cristina,
a university researcher
from Tarragona, pay
530 euros per month for
a 28-square-metre flat in
Barcelona that does not
have a kitchen.
They say some of the
cheaper flats they viewed
had outside toilets and no
windows.
The El País report reveals
tiny flats such as these are
being built ‘to cut costs

Dallaglio says
England are
French-made
Lawrence Dallaglio has told
England there can be ‘no
excuses’ for underperforming at the Rugby World Cup
in France next month.
The former captain says the
side is fit and ready to face
the challenge.
He will make his long-awaited return to play against
Wales at Twickenham
tomorrow.
Wasps star Dallaglio last
played for England as a
replacement in March, 2006
– when they were trounced
in Paris by a French team
delivering a terminal blow
to Andy Robinson’s régime.
England’s fortunes have
barely improved since then,
and with new coach Brian
Ashton in charge they head
to the World Cup as outsiders to retain their crown.
But after an intensive fiveweek training camp in Bath,
Dallaglio, 34, insists there is
no reason England cannot
defy logic and finish on top
of the pile.
He said: “I make no bones
about it, our domestic structure is not ideally suited to
England doing well in the
Six Nations – it’s as simple
as that.
“What you see now is a very
different player to one halfway through a Guinness
Premiership
campaign
or halfway through a Six
Nations.
“We knock lumps out of
each other from September
through to January, and
then you have to peak for
the Six Nations tournament.
What you’re seeing now is a
group of players who are a
lot fresher and have got the
benefit of a lot of the training behind them.
“Everyone talks about the
last World Cup campaign,
and the camp being a fundamental part of that process when everyone was very
fit and ready, and this campaign will be similar.
“Everyone has put a hell of
a lot of hard work and effort
into being fit and fresh – and
so there can be no excuses.”
England face a tough World
Cup pool which includes
South Africa, Tonga and
Samoa. But Dallaglio, a star
in the 2003 win, says anything is possible if England
can fight their way into the
knock-out stages.
He said: “The World Cup is
about not leaving anything
in the locker.
“But the belief is there that
we can.”

A reign in Spain
after drugs’ pain
Spain’s Alberto Contador
won a drug-tainted Tour de
France on Sunday when he
held on to his 23-second overnight lead over Australian
Cadel Evans to secure the
famed yellow jersey.
Contador, who rides for the
Discovery Channel team,
becomes the first Spaniard
to win the three-week race
since Miguel Indurain, the
first ever five-time consecutive winner, took the title
from 1991 to 1995.
The 24-year-old from Madrid
virtually secured his first
ever yellow jersey on only
his second ride in the race
after his fifth place finish
in the penultimate stage
time trial in Angoulême on
Saturday.
He finished two minutes 18
seconds behind American
teammate Levi Leipheimer
after the 55,5km race against
the clock, but was forced to
dig deep to prevent the everpresent Evans from causing
a major upset.
The 30-year-old Australian
started the 19th stage with
a deficit of 1:50 on Contador
but kept the Spaniard on his
toes by finishing just 51 seconds behind Leipheimer to
ALBERTO CONTADOR
CARLOS SASTRE
close the gap significantly.
In the end Contador held
on to his lead after the final
stage finished in a bunch
sprint dominated by Italian
Daniele Bennati of the
Lampre team.
Evans, in second place at 23
seconds, became Australia’s
highest ever finisher in the
race, having equalled compatriot Phil Anderson’s
achievement of a fifth place
last year.
Like Contador and Evans,
American Levi Leipheimer
achieved a career best to
finish third overall at 31 seconds, well ahead of fourthplaced Spaniard Carlos
Sastre, of CSC, at 7:08.
It is the second smallest
winning margin in the history of the race, following
Greg Lemond’s eight-second victory over France’s
Laurent Fignon after a final
day time trial in Paris in
1989.
Contador’s victory, and
indeed the entire 94th edition of the race, will however be tinged forever with
controversy.
There are many who are
going to claim that the race
was distorted by the mere
inclusion, and subsequent
exclusion, of Dane Michael
Rasmussen.
Denmark’s former two-time
winner of the polka dot jersey had saddled up looking
for a stage win or two, and
to perhaps be crowned King
of the Mountains for a third
consecutive time.
To everyone’s surprise, he
became a potential, though
unlikely, Tour champion
due to his determination
and the relative collapse
of the Astana team of
Alexandre Vinokourov, who
was subsequently thrown
out for blood doping.
Soon, Rasmussen’s own
collapse – in the shape of
his unceremonious exit
from the race – would push
Contador into the unlikely
position of race leader, a
position that he would go on
to defend during the closing
days of the race.
After a week of speculation
that he had been doping,
Rasmussen’s
Rabobank
team discovered that their
yellow jersey wearer had
lied to them about his
whereabouts in June – he
was in Italy when he said he
would be in Mexico – leading the Dutch outfit to bow
to the pressure and throw
him out.
Land of Pelé bids
to bring 2014
World Cup home
The Brazilian football association has formally submitted its plans for staging
the 2014 World Cup but is
keeping the details of the
bid a secret.
A
Brazilian
delegate,
headed by CBF president
Ricardo Teixeira, handed
over a 900-page dossier at
the headquarters of world
football’s governing body
but refused to answer media
questions on the size of the
bid, budget or any potential
challenges it faced.
Brazil last staged the World
Cup in 1950 and is the only
country bidding to stage
the 2014 version, having
benefited from FIFA’s decision to rotate the World
Cup between different continents.
Colombia briefly launched
a rival bid but withdrew in
April.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter
has repeatedly warned
however that Brazil must
still meet the logistical and
financial requirements of
staging the tournament or
risk the competition being
opened up to nations from
outside South America.

Horno blows
hot and cold
for new term
Valencia full-back Asier del
Horno, who was left out of
his side’s pre-season training camp in the Netherlands
last month, trained on
Wednesday with the rest of
the squad.
Valencia coach Quique
Sánchez Flores had said at
the start of the pre-season
that he was keen to offload
Del Horno, who was signed
from Chelsea a year ago
for 7.5 million euros on a
six-year contract.
But the 26-year-old had
reportedly refused to leave
the Spanish side if he was
offered less than the 1.8
million euros per season
he earns at present and
Valencia was not able to
find him a new club.
“Little is known about the
reasons that have led Quique
to readmit Del Horno but
what is clear is that his exit
from the club is very difficult because of his high
cost,” the online edition of
El Mundo wrote.
The Valencia coach has
only one other left-back at
his disposal, Italy’s Emiliano Moretti, the paper
added.
Del Horno played in just six
Liga matches last season,
due to a recurrent ankle
injury that forced him to
withdraw from Spain’s
23-man team at the 2006
World Cup in Germany.

UP FOR IT:
The greatest of all,
Pelé, leads
the charge

World Cup,” Blatter said
shortly ahead of Tuesday’s
formal handover.
“If something should happen to the Brazil bid, then
we still have time to start
again.”
Blatter said that FIFA would
begin inspections of all
aspects of Brazil’s bid at the
61
end of August before taking
its final decision on October
30 following a meeting of
the organisation’s executive
committee.
Acknowledged as ‘home’ of
world class football, Brazil
will undoubtedly face scrutiny over problems with the
country’s infrastructure.
France has kept its place
on the 2008 Formula 1 calendar with Valencia and
Singapore appearing for
the first time and Australia
confirmed as the March 16
season-opener.
The
Inter national
Automobile Federation has
published a calendar with 18
races, one more than 2007.
Valencia will debut on
August 24 with the Spanish
port city’s race listed as the
European GP.
Singapore will host a race
on September 28.
Canada, now the only North
American round of the
championship after the disappearance of the US GP at
Indianapolis, was listed as
‘provisional’ for contractual
reasons with a June 8 date.

Battling it out at the adult and junior competition
Real de Faula, Benidorm
hosted the 3rd Escuela de
Golf Adult/Junior event last
Sunday. The weather was
sublime, the par 62 executive course was in excellent condition and over 30
players battled it out for the
coveted title of being Adult/
Junior Team Champions.
All the competitors headed
off on their buggies and
began plotting their way
round the tricky course.
The format was ‘greensomes’, with alternate
shots being played after the
best drive was chosen. The
event was played in high
spirits and all competitors
looked to be having fun
deciding which drive to
play. The early pace was set
by Mike and Luke Curtis
(age 13) as they got to three
under gross after just seven
holes. However having used
most of Luke’s drives the
inevitable happened on the
back nine and the team slid
out of contention.
The top six teams were separated by just three shots.
Defending champion, Jason
Outhwaite, this time pairing up with son Tom (age
10) and the combination of
Darryl Smith and Hannah
Ogilvie (age 15) managed
very solid rounds to finish in
tied 3rd place at four under
par. Second place went to
Aaron Woodhams and partner Laura Outhwaite (age
14), one shot better at five
under. The winners, having
played a stunning round
of just four over gross, net
six under were John RasAndérica and playing partner George Pay (age 14).
George commented: “John
and I played well, we kept
the ball in play and holed
some good putts. We were
really pleased to win the
trophy and I would like to
thank our playing partners
David and Daisy for a very
enjoyable round.”
On the tough 11th and 15th
holes, George Pay (age
14) and Patrick Kelly won
the junior and adult nearest-the-pin competitions
respectively. In the long
drive, Toby Christey-Clover
(age 13) hit a monster drive
down the 17th to win the yellow tee event and Hannah
Ogilvie followed suit to win
the red tee event.
Escuela de Golf would like
to thank Elaina at the front
desk at Real de Faula for all
her help and support.
All the competitors commented on the course and
are looking forward to playing again.

Beach party tug-of-war
On Saturday, Elche RFC
took part in a charity event
at the beach party by competing in a tug-of-war.
We were supposed to go up
against Torry Army, but
for some reason they pulled
out, so we took part in two
matches, firstly against a
Coastrider team and then
against Torrevieja RFC.
Against Coastrider we were
slightly unlucky as we had
8 people on the rope against
their 20, so we lost that battle.
Afterwards, having pulled
twice, Elche went up
against a heavier Torrevieja
team and the first pull was
counted as a draw, after
that on the re-pull, tiredness showed and Torrevieja
came out on top as with the
deciding pull.
But the most important
thing on the day was that the
charities involved, APANEE
Torrevieja and Cruz Roja,
made some money.

At the club house, Mal ‘down

with Altea Hills ‘A’ winning the 1st division and
L’Àncora ‘C’ winning the
2nd division.
In October, the league
will operate a new format
with three divisions and
will introduce men’s and
women’s doubles into the
league matches.
The number of players in
each team will be the same
(four players, two men and
two women with a combined playing age for a
couple of 95 with the mini-
FERRER: Role model for local players
mum age for a man being
40 and for the women 35)
but will include a men’s
and women’s doubles as
well as a mixed doubles
which will make the match
more interesting and competitive.
The season finishes in June
with a fun day for players
from each club followed by
a presentation of trophies
for the league winners and
then dinner.

Spend, spend,
Sven again?
Spain’s Carlos Moyà beat
Romanian Andrei Pavel
6-4 6-2 on Sunday to win
the Croatian Open for
the fifth time.
Sunday’s victory was the
20th career title for the
former world number
one, now ranked 20th.
Moyà’s last victory in
Umag was four years
ago.
Spanish
winger
José
Antonio Reyes said he
had always wanted to join
Atlético Madrid since it
became clear he was not
going to continue with
Arsenal.
The 23-year-old was on the point
of signing for Atlético last year,
having reached a pre-agreement
with the club, but ended up going
to their city rivals Real Madrid
on loan instead.
With that loan deal over, Atlético
have now secured the player on a
four-year contract.
“I am happy I am back in Spain
again and with the club I wanted
to join.
“The club has been interested in
me a long time and tried to sign
me from Sevilla when I was 13. I
GUNNED DOWN: Reyes
owe it to them,” Reyes said at his
presentation.
“Real wanted me right up until
the last moment but Atlético
made a great effort to get me.”
Atlético club president Enrique
Cerezo was keen to play down
the importance of the fact that
the club appeared to have stolen
the player from under the noses
of Real Madrid.
Spanish media alleged that
Atlético had bid between nine
and 12 million euros to land the
player, topping an offer from
Real of six million.
“We had an agreement with him
last year but Arsenal wanted to
take Real’s Julio Baptista on loan
and there was no choice,” Cerezo
said.
“We have returned for the player once again and he wanted to
come here.”
Doubting Atlético fans, who
watched Reyes help their neighbours to the Primera Liga title
just a month ago, have been
divided over the signing, particularly as he appeared to shun
them last year.
“I am a little bit worried by the
fans’ reaction, but I will have
to prove my worth on the pitch,
scoring goals, and by helping
them to be successful,” Reyes
said.
Just to make life more interesting for Reyes, his first league
match in a red and white shirt
will be in the Bernabeu against
Real on the weekend of August
25/26.
In his last game at the
Bernabeu, he scored twice as
Real beat Mallorca 3-1 to take the
league title on the season’s final
day.
“It will be a great game, the kind
every player would want to play
in,” he added.

Va l e n c i a
meet
Manchester City in a
friendly tomorrow in a
week when it has been
rumoured that City boss
Sven Göran Eriksson is
preparing to spend more
money on three new
signings.
Speculation in Italy is
mounting that a £6 million bid for Bulgarian
striker Valeri Bojinov
has been accepted by
Fiorentina, while Real
Sociedad’s Javi Garrido
is also a confirmed at
£1.5 million for a four
-year deal. In addition, Eriksson is ready
to pay £4 million for
Croatia defender Vedran
Corluka.
The 21-year-old was part
of the Croatian side
which defeated England
in the Euro 2008 qualifiers last October and
while the Dinamo Zagreb
star would not qualify
for a work permit under
the current criteria, City
are almost certain to win
any appeal.
Corluka’s
arrival
would signal the end of
Eriksson’s much-publicised pursuit of Giorgio
Chellini, whose widelyanticipated move to
Eastlands now appears
to have broken down.
The transfer would also
effectively mark the
end of both Danny and
Matthew Mills’ time
at City, with Georgios
Samaras also heading
for the exit door once
the signing of Bojinov is
concluded.
Bojinov’s promise has
been known for some
time. Having made his
Serie A debut with Lecce
at just 16, he moved to
Fiorentina for £10 million two years ago but
quickly lost his place
and spent last season on
loan at Juventus.
The latest splurge will
bring Sven’s spending on
new players up to the £40
million mark.
