Paint the

THE SLEEPY community of
Buñol relies on one sauce for
its annual source of income.
And next Wednesday, some
20,000 revellers will strip off
to literally paint the town red.
For the medieval Valencian
settlement, which normally
has a population of 10,000,
re-enacts an event which first
began after World War II.
The agricultural town is
transformed into a sea of red,
the site of the world’s biggest
ever tomato-throwing event.
The aim of La Tomatina
is simple – around 100,000
tonnes of ripe tomatoes are
pelted, hurled, catapulted
and fired at friends, family,
acquaintances, and other
people you don’t know.
The fun starts at around
11am in the Plaza del Pueblo,
but the fiesta has become
so big, that it now stretches
along the streets leading into
the square.

Shark miracle rescue turns to tragedy Footie

FINS definitely ain’t what they
used to be down Tarragona way.
For Spanish scientists were forced
to use their bare hands to wrestle
with an unusual tourist attraction
– a giant shark.
The 110-pound sandbar shark
– not generally associated with attacks on humans – first showed up
early last week at a beach called
Miracle in north-eastern part of
the province, forcing authorities to
close off the water to bathers.
The 7ft shark had become a tourist attraction by making daily incursions into knee-high water on
the Spanish beach.
The fish turned into a novelty by
swimming regularly into view in
very shallow water. Bathers gathered daily to snap photos.
A team of three biologists from
the Barcelona Aquarium waded
in Monday and, after two failed attempts before a crowd of hundreds,
finally managed to capture the flailing shark with their hands.
Sadly it died on Wednesday.
POLICE swooped on a beach
and a brothel in a crackdown on a gang suspected
of drug-running across Europe.
Spanish national police
arrested 26 people and
seized three tons of hashish
in the orchestrated raids.
The gang is thought to
have been involved in
smuggling the drug over
from Morocco and selling
it in Spain and elsewhere in
Europe, police said.
The arrests were made in
raids in the south-eastern
Spanish region of Murcia
and in Cádiz in the south.
Ten of the detainees
were arrested when police
caught them unloading 79
bundles of hashish from a
boat docked on a beach in
Murcia.
An alleged leader of the
group was arrested later
at a brothel in the Cádiz
region, and police said they
found him to be carrying
more than 5,000 euros in
cash.

CANCER patients in
Spain are surviving for
longer than those in
Britain.
THE MAN being tipped
as a future Prime Minister of Spain has defied his party elders – by
promising to run for parliament.
Madrid’s conservative
mayor,
Alberto
RuizGallardón, has cocked a
snoop at those who want
him to sit tight and shut

The 48-year-old said on
Sunday he would like to
run for parliament and
remain mayor at the
same time, a combination he said would give
the city a better voice in
the Spanish legislature.

Survival rates in lung,
breast, prostate and colorectal cancer were lower in
the UK compared with everywhere except eastern Europe, international studies
revealed this week.
The proportion of female
cancer patients living five
years beyond diagnosis in
Spain was 64 per cent – nine
per cent higher than in the
UK.
And among men the figure
for Spain was 50 per cent
compared to 43 per cent in
Britain.
British cancer patients
are said to be substantially
more likely to die of the
disease than those in other
western European countries because of diagnosis
delays and poor access to
the latest drugs.
Cancer patients in France
topped the table with a 71
per cent five-year survival
rate for women and 53 per
cent for men.
Sweden and Norway are
also among the best performers.

outcome of 2.7m new cases
between 1995 and 1999.
While death rates have
fallen in the UK, they have
also fallen in the rest of Europe.
An editorial in the Lancet Oncology questioned
whether the NHS Cancer
Plan, launched to tackle
poor survival rates in the
UK, was working.
“Our concerns illustrate
the considerable challenges
that now face the UK government if it is to make the
NHS work efficiently and
effectively,” it stated.
British Government cancer “tsar” Professor Mike
Richards conceded that
while some of the data
from European countries
could be flawed, this was
unlikely to account for all
of the differences between
countries.
“The findings show that
many more lives could be
saved if the outcomes in all
countries were brought up
to the standards of the best
countries.”
He added: “The poor results from the UK were
attributable
mainly
to
patients having more advanced disease at diagnosis
than patients in other European countries.”
The Cancer Plan was
launched in Britain in 2000,
promising an increase in
specialist staff and equipment to tackle the delays
in diagnosing and treating
cancer.
Strict targets on the waiting times for scans and appointments were set.
Professor Richard Sullivan, Cancer Research UK’s
director of clinical programmes, said the figures
showed the plan was beginning to make a difference.
But he added: “Cancer is
still not being diagnosed
early enough in all cases.
And we need to ensure that
patients have access to the
best surgery, radiotherapy
and other treatments. We
need a sustained effort to
beat the disease.”
While more than half of
patients in Spain, France,
Germany and Italy have
access to new treatments
provided since 1985, the
proportion in the UK is four
out of 10.
The report found the uptake of newer cancer drugs
was “low and slow” in the
UK as well as New Zealand,

The researchers, whose
report is published in the
journal Annals of Oncology,
found that Austria, France,
Switzerland and the US
were leaders in using new
cancer drugs.
The greatest differences
in the uptake of drugs were
noted for the new colorectal
and lung cancer drugs.
The proportion of colorectal cancer patients with access to the drug Avastin was
10 times higher in the US
than it was in Europe.
The researchers said if
all countries had the survival rate of the best nations, there would be about
150,000 – or 12 per cent – fewer deaths in the five years
after diagnosis.
They also mostly found
that the more a country
spent on health care, the
better its survival rates
– except for Britain.
A spokesman for the Department of Health in London said: “We are making
good progress in ensuring
cancer patients have access
to the drugs they need.”
Andrew Lansley, the shadow health secretary, said:
“It is outrageous that we are
the leading country in Europe for cancer research but
the slowest in the uptake of
new cancer drugs.”

AN ANGLO-Irish author living in Madrid has bowled
the critics over with his
first novel – written in Spanish.
Stocks of Ian Gibson’s
Viento del Sur, published by
Almuzara, are flying off the
shelves.
The novel, which has won
favourable reviews, is a
thinly-disguised
autobiography which tears into
British society, examining
class, religion, loveless families, vice-ridden public
schools, as well as stiff
upper lips and even the
cricketer’s demon googly

By contrast the 68-year-old
author talks in rapturous
tones about the unfettered
freedoms of Spain.
“I couldn’t have published
this book in English because of the hurt to my relatives and schools,” Gibson
said.
He has had Spanish nationality for 20 years.
SIZZLING EXCLUSIVE by Duncan Danley
Wikid scam,
whacky end
HARD-CORE foodies are drooling over the prospect of a prime porker with a Spanish streak of
magic in it.
For a superlative, salt-cured ham is being created costing about 1,500 euros.
It makes it the most expensive ham in the world.
The 2006 Alba Quercus Reserve (as this pricy pork will
be known) won’t be available until late 2008 and you
must buy the whole ham or nothing at all.
But that hasn’t dissuaded gastronomic websites and
blogs from buzzing with talk of the farm where it is being produced, likening it to a Mount Olympus of pork.
Its mastermind, Manuel Maldonado, 44, comes from
a long line of ham producers in a country that’s nuts
about the stuff.

TELEVISION hacks in
Spain have been caught playing with their pens down
– fiddling with online encyclopaedia Whackypedia.
Two Spanish TV stations,
one public and the other
private, both had the same
idea about writing a “good”
silly season story.
The journalists both planned to go into the site, vandalise a bit of it, and then
write up a story on how unreliable the encyclopaedia
was.
They described how John
Lennon was obsessed with
paella and moved the date
of Elvis Presley’s “death
by sandwich on the toilet”
from 1977 to the present
day.
Both stations said they
were performing an “experiment” to check the reaction time of Wikipedia to
their bogus changes. Unfortunately for the hacks, Wackypedia was pretty quick in
this case and the changes
were fairly swift.
Fetaccomplis, the spice is right ■
A SPANISH pepper has proved it
is the spice of life in 2007.
Pimentón de la Vera, along with
a Czech bread and an Italian rice,
has joined the EU’s list of protected local brand.
This week all three joined delicacies such as Greek Feta cheese
and Italian Bianco del Cilento figs
in this special league table.
The Spanish pepper and the Italian rice Riso di Baraggia Biellese
e Vercellese were both awarded
status as Protected Designations
of Origin by the European Commission.
The status is used to protect
“foodstuffs which are produced,
processed and prepared in a given
geographical area using recognised know-how,” the Commission
said.
The Czech bread ‘Karlovarsky
suchar,’ meanwhile, was granted
Protected Geographical Indication
status, meaning that it is linked to
a specific geographical region for
at least one stage of production.
The bread is baked using water
and salt from thermal springs in
the Czech spa town of Karlovy
Vary.
In all three cases, it means that
only manufacturers based in the

specific area and using the specific
techniques will be allowed to give
their product the protected title.
The EU already lists some 800
products under its PDO and PGI
schemes, ranging from the smoked
Scottish haddock known as Arbroath Smokies to the Italian fig
known as Fico Bianco del Cilento.
The country with the most PGI
and PDO listings is Italy, with 159
entries. Nine EU states – Bulgaria,
Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia,
Lithuania, Malta, Romania and
Slovakia – have not yet registered
any entries under either designation.
EATING foods prepared
with olive oil are not only

The findings on oils rich in
phenols, substances thought
to have beneficial effects on the
heart, provide new evidence of
its healthy effects, Dr Francisco

University Hospital in Córdoba,
and colleagues conclude.
Olive oil contains phenols,
which have been shown to fight clotting in lab tests, but few

partner.
A violent argument broke out

numbers
in
Spain are heading for record highs, according to a
new report.
Between January and July
this year, the number of
tourists rose to 33.8 million,
a two per cent increase on
the previous year.
Secretary of state for
tourism, Pedro Mejia, said:
“We expect that by the end
of the year, the number of
tourists who will have visited Spain will have reached
60 million.”
Spain
receives
most
tourists from the UK, France and Germany with 60 per
cent of the total, while the
number of North American
tourists has reached new
levels in the past six years
due to events such as the
America’s Cup.
The most visited areas of
Spain are Cataluña, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands, although the
latter suffered a 3.6 per cent
drop in tourism this year
due to a drop in demand for
package holidays and a rise
in cheap ‘no-frills’ airlines.

PASSENGERS and crewmembers on board a Taiwanese China Airlines had
a lucky escape on Monday
when their plane burst into
flames seconds after landing at Japan’s Naha airport
in Okinawa.
All the 165 people on board
the plane, which had been
on a routine flight between
the Taiwanese capital, Taipei, and southern Japan,
were evacuated before the
jet burst into flames.
It took fire-fighters one
hour to extinguish the
flames, after which time the
plane broke into two. The
incident is a major setback
for the airline, which once
had one of the strongest
safety records in the world.

Space Oddity
comes to Earth
Ursa Minor find
of neutron star
is exciting link
By Charles Barrington
ASTRONOMERS have spotted
a space oddity in Earth’s neighbourhood – a dead star with some
unusual characteristics.
The neutron star was studied using
space telescopes and ground-based
observatories.
But this one, located in the constellation Ursa Minor, seems to lack
some key characteristics found in
other neutron stars.
The discovery has been made by a
team of American and Canadian researchers.
If confirmed, it would be only the
eighth known “isolated neutron
star” – meaning a neutron star that
does not have an associated supernova remnant, binary companion, or
radio pulsations.
The object has been nicknamed
Calvera, after the villain in the 1960s
western film The Magnificent Seven. NEUTRON STAR: Star made famous by The Magnificent Seven film
“The seven previously
known isolated neutron
stars are known collectively as The Magnificent Seven within
the community,” said
co-author Derek Fox, of
Pennsylvania State Uni-
versity.
“So the name Calvera is a
bit of an inside joke on our
part.”
The experts estimate the
object is 250 to 1,000 lightyears away. This would
make Calvera one of the
closest neutron stars to
Earth – and possibly the
closest.
Neutron stars are one of
the possible end points for a
star. They are created when
stars with masses greater
than four to eight times
those of our Sun exhaust
their nuclear fuel, and undergo a supernova explosion.
The central region of the
star collapses under gravity, causing protons and electrons to combine to form.
Spy killer substance found at striptease
POLONIUM 210, the deadly radioactive substance that last year killed exRussian spy Alexander Litvinenko,
has been found in a London striptease
club.
Police state that the material was
found on seats and cushions of the
Hey Jo club in up-market St James’s,
Central London – a club often frequented by rich Russian businessmen.
Dar Marrakech restaurant in central London, Litvinenko’s car and
a London taxi have also been found
with traces of the material.
The new revelations come at a time
when investigators have disclosed
that the cost of the Litvinenko case is
running at £3m.
Litvinenko died in University College London in December 2006, soon
after meeting Andrei Lugovoi and
Dimitri Kovtun in London’s Millenium Hotel where he drank tea with
them. Several people in the hotel also
tested positive for radiation.
A further 26 sites in and around London also tested positive for Polonium
210. The British government has demanded the extradition of Lugovoi
from Russia, but Moscow maintains
that their Constitution prohibits the
extradition of Russian nationals.
Running bull
kills onlooker
ONE man was gored to
death and 24 others injured in a weekend of bull
running at a lesser-known
cousin of Spain’s famous
Pamplona festival.
The 60-year-old man was
gored in the abdomen by
a bull and died on the way
to hospital on Saturday in
Huamantla, a town 170 kilometres from Mexico City.
Among the injured, one
woman and two men were
in a critical condition.
Thousands of people lined
the streets of Huamantla as
23 bulls were let loose in
five streets in a festival held
since 1953 in Tlaxcala state,
the cradle of Mexican bull
fighting.
The festival has yet to
achieve the status of Spain’s
San Fermín bull running,
which was made famous
by Ernest Hemingway’s
novel The Sun Also Rises, a
semi-autobiographical account of an alcohol-fuelled
visit to the event by a group
of squabbling British and
American friends in the
1920s.
Hurricane’s

winds of up to 250 kilometres swept through the

more were injured as the
hurricane picked up force.
It caused thousands of
euros worth damage to
properties and agricultural lands in Saint Lucía,
the Dominican Republic,
Jamaica as well as in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and
the Quintana Roo district.
Thousand of tourists holidaying in the area managed
to flee on last-minute flights

those who were not so lucky
to escape the area took refuge in special hurricane
shelters.
Hurricane Dean was the

Ex-minister

Chikane was poisoned in

CLIMATE change protesters blockaded the offices of
Heathrow Airport operator
BAA.
The activists erected tents
in the company’s car park
as part of 24-hours of “direct action” by members of
the anti-aviation Camp for
Climate Action.
BAA said it had told staff
not to come to the offices.
Earlier, there were scuffles
between campaigners and

were arrested after blockading British Airways’ world

The activists say they
hope to besiege BAA “for as

The blockade – which police said involved about 350
people – ended on Monday
as the camp itself draws to
a close.
On Sunday night, a spokesman for BAA said the protest was having no impact
on operations.
And the group later
stopped vehicles getting
into British Airways’ Eastern Perimeter Road depot
in a protest they said was to
highlight how transporting
food by air is contributing

Sex-crazed
camel kills
A WOMAN has been killed
by her pet camel after the
animal may have tried to
have sex with her.
The Australian was found
dead at the family’s sheep
and cattle ranch near the
town of Mitchell in Queensland.
The woman had been
given the camel as a 60th
birthday present earlier
this year because of her
love of exotic pets.
The camel was just 10
months old but already
weighed 152kg and had
come close to suffocating
the family’s pet goat on a
number of occasions.
On Saturday, the woman
apparently became the object of the male camel’s

By José Andúgar
MADELEINE could be
alive and well – after reportedly being seen in a
petrol station in Murcia.
Police are investigating a
call from two women who
claim to have seen the fouryear-old running from a
public toilet at the Belmonte
filling station in Tentegorra,
near Cartagena.
She is said to have been
accompanied by a man with
dark eyes and brown hair,
rugged
complexion
and
around 1.75m (5ft9ins) tall.
The two witnesses say the
man, who held the young girl
by the hand, was wearing
cut-off trousers and a shortsleeved shirt.
According to officers, when
the man realised the women
had seen him, he fled with the
child in a dark green Citröen
ZX. They say he grabbed the
girl by the head and forced
her down in the seat so that
she could not be seen from
outside the car before leaving the area at high speed.
After receiving the tip-off at
around 17.45 hrs on Wednesday, National Police and the
Guardia Civil rushed to the
scene and questioned staff.
Franciso Cervantes, an employee at the service station,
said the car was ‘very dirty’
and driven by a ‘person with
curly hair’, although he was
unable to see whether the
driver was a man or a woman.
Cervantes says the driver
headed for the car wash, but
left abruptly before entering.
Officers say they are taking all clues seriously and
investigating every alleged
sighting.
Meanwhile,
Madeleine’s
parents say she may be alive
and in Spain. Kate and Gerry McCann gave interviews
to Spain’s three top-selling newspapers in which
they insisted there was a
“very real possibility” their
daughter had not been
killed.
This appears to go against
recent Portuguese police
statements
acknowledging for the first time that
Madeleine could be dead.
The couple refused to say
whether police have told
them the young girl could
be in Spain, but their interviews will fuel speculation
detectives have a new lead.
It is now 111 days since
Madeleine vanished from
her bed in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz while
her parents ate with friends
in a nearby tapas restaurant.
A senior Portuguese police officer said yesterday
that detectives had a “positive feeling” about the investigation as they await
key DNA test results.
The Forensic Science
Service in Birmingham
is still analysing blood
specks found by British
sniffer dogs on the wall of
Madeleine’s bedroom in the
McCanns’ holiday flat.
Chief Inspector Olegario
Sousa, the spokesman in
the case, said the forensic results were needed to
test the hypothesis that
Madeleine is now dead.
In recent weeks the focus
of the investigation has
moved away from AngloPortuguese expat Robert
Murat, 33, still the only official suspect in the case.
Unconfirmed reports this
week said the inquiry was
at a “decisive phase”, with
police poised to launch
fresh searches in the Algarve.
The McCanns have acknowledged there has been
a “shift in the investigation”, but say nothing has
changed in the past fort-
night. Mr McCann told El
Mundo: “There is a very
real possibility Madeleine
is alive and we want the police to look for her.”
He went on: “The possibility that Madeleine is alive
and in Spain is real. It is
something we did not consider at the beginning, but
now we are seriously weighing up.
“The border between the
two countries is very big.
If someone had a car, it is
clear they could cross into
Spain. There is no border
guard and no one closed the
border the night Madeleine
disappeared.”
Asked if the couple had received concrete information
from Spanish police that
Madeleine was alive and
in Spain, Mr McCann said:
“They are involved in the investigation, but I cannot tell
you what they are working
on, they will have to tell you
officially.”

THREE men have been arrested over the murder of a
biker who was shot dead on
the M40 in Warwickshire.
Gerry Tobin, 35, of southeast London, was killed on
August 12.
The Hell’s Angel had been
riding home from the Bulldog Bash biker festival, held
at Long Marston Airfield,
near Stratford-upon-Avon,
when he was shot.
The men were arrested in
raids by armed officers on
two addresses in Coventry
and one in Nuneaton. Police
have taken more than 600
calls about the murder.
The men have been taken
to a police station in Warwickshire where they will
be questioned later.
Assistant chief constable
Bill Holland said it was possible that further addresses
would be searched, adding
that it was an active and ongoing inquiry.
Police have released CCTV
footage showing Hell’s Angel Gerry Tobin just minutes before he was shot and
killed on a British motorway.
Mr Tobin is seen at a petrol station filling up his
motorbike before heading
onto the A46 and then the
M40 motorway in Warwickshire.
It was the biker’s last
known stop before his
death.
Two shots are believed to
have been fired from a green
Rover 620, with one of the
shots killing Mr Tobin and
the other hitting his bike.

VOICES from the worlds
of politics and journalism
have paid tribute to “gentleman journalist” Lord
Deedes, who has died aged
94.
William “Bill” Deedes was
the only man to have edited
a newspaper – the Daily Telegraph – and been a Cabinet
member.
Gordon Brown said Britain owed a “huge debt of
gratitude” for Lord Deedes’
public service, including as
a Tory MP.
His successor at the Telegraph, Sir Max Hastings,
said he was a reporter of
“utmost integrity and enormous skill”.
Lord Deedes spent most of
his life writing for national
newspapers and became
known as the “Grand Old
Man of Fleet Street”, completing his final column on
August 3 this year.
He was also Conservative
MP for Ashford in Kent and
served as minister without
portfolio from 1962 to 1964.
The prime minister said:
“He started writing as a
professional
journalist
more than 76 years ago and
few have served journalism
and the British people for so
long at such a high level of
distinction and with such a
popular following.”
Tory leader David Cameron said Lord Deedes had
done “enough in his time to
fill at least three lifetimes”.
The young Bill Deedes
was the inspiration for Evelyn Waugh’s infamous war
reporter William Boot in
the novel Scoop.
Lord Deedes also achieved
fame outside Fleet Street
as “Dear Bill”, addressee
of the “Denis Thatcher”
fortnightly letter in Private
Eye.
However, long-term migration INTO the UK, was

countries surveyed.
The poll for The Financial

hardened attitudes towards
Muslims living in Britain.
Compared with citizens of
the other five nations, Brits
were also the most likely to
predict a “major terrorist attack” in their country over
the next year (52 per cent)
and consider Muslims a national security threat (38 per
cent).
Two-thirds

By John Bennett
THREE people are feared dead
in a hotel blaze in Cornwall.
Teacher Peter Hughes, from
Cheslyn Hay in Staffordshire,
died and two more guests staying at Newquay’s Penhallow
Hotel are missing following
Saturday’s fire.
The 43-year-old fell from the
window of the burning building after inhaling smoke and
toxic fumes, a coroner heard
this week.
The interim cause of death,
given as smoke inhalation and
toxic fumes, was decided at
Truro City Hall ahead of a full
inquest.
The hotel, now reduced to
rubble, has been declared a
crime scene by police.

Mr Hughes and witnessed him
jump from a third floor window.
In a statement, paramedic
Mark Bruce said Mr Hughes
was alive when he reached
him and had said: “I couldn’t
breathe up there, I had to jump,
mate.”
Mr Bruce said he could hear
the fire “roaring” above as he
administered first aid to Mr
Hughes.
Cornwall coroner Emma Carolyn delivered the interim cause
of death on Wednesday.
Human remains were found
by teams on Tuesday searching
among the hotel rubble for two
missing people who are feared
dead.
The families of both missing
people, believed to be in their
70s and 80s, were informed.
More than 80 people safely escaped from the building on the
night of the fire.
Four people taken to the Royal
Cornwall Hospital in Truro are
said to be improving.
A team of 20 people is continuing to search through the rubble
of the hotel. Police said it could
take more than two weeks.
Fire service cuts hampered
efforts to tackle the fatal hotel
blaze in Cornwall, the Fire Brigades Union has claimed.
The FBU said there were not
enough firefighters to operate
equipment and low levels of
staff cover meant there were
not enough firefighters to operate pumps when the fire broke
out.
General secretary Matt Wrack
said: “There were not enough
crews in the area to man the
second pump. It is dangerous
not to have sufficient night
time cover.”
FBU member Kevin Herniman said he was horrified by
what had happened.
Firefighters were currently
campaigning against the downgrading of two fire stations in
Cornwall, he said.
“This goes to prove that if you
cut the level of service within
the fire service people will die,”
he added.
The FBU also said the service’s aerial platform, needed to
fight fires in multi-storey buildings effectively, had to travel 50
miles from Plymouth.
THE GOVERNMENT will
challenge “robustly” the decision to allow the man who
knifed head teacher Philip
Lawrence to death to stay in
the UK.
Home Office Minister
Tony McNulty said Learco
Chindamo had forfeited his
rights because of the seriousness of the crime he
committed.
The 26-year-old is serving
a life sentence for the 1995
killing in London. His lawyers argued that deporting
him to Italy, where he was
born, would breach his human rights.
Chindamo, jailed for life
in 1996 with a minimum 12year term, could be released
early next year if the Parole
Board decides it is “safe.”
Mr McNulty said he did not
think flaws with the Human
Rights Act had resulted in
the decision of the Asylum
and Immigration Tribunal.
Mr Lawrence’s widow said
she was “unutterably depressed” by the ruling.
But human rights lawyer
David Enright said that under the current rules, it was
impossible for people to be
deported from one EU country to another.

I
t isn’t often that I get to speak to
our busy mayor in Parcent, since
he only took office this May, and
still less often that he has to speak
to me to pass on personal congratulations.
So, this afternoon has a tinge of unreality
about it, when Maximo stops me in the street
and warmly clasps both my hands in his.
“Your daughter was the most well-behaved
festera in church today!” he announces.
Although shell-shocked, I manage to mumble a fairly gracious reply, pointing out that
she did indeed look extremely angelic today,
on the first day of Parcent’s annual fiesta
in honour of its patron saint San Lorenzo,
although this had been achieved by dint
of behaving monstrously for the previous
three weeks.
Each year, villages in the Vall de Pop
ring out the summer with an exhaustive
selection of fiestas, fireworks and fabulous
parades, ranging from the sublime to the
ridiculous.
Swooningly hot days see paella competitions under the trees in Xaló, carnival floats
or bull-running through the winding streets
of Llíber, and nights are lit by cascades of
firework displays, and throb to the sounds
of live bands and DJ’s that can be seen,
heard and felt throughout the whole valley.
Tiny villages that usually house less than
a thousand inhabitants suddenly swell with
tourists and visitors from neighbouring
villages and towns along the coast, in a
display of partying that is not for the fainthearted.
For visitors from the UK, not used to
the sights of young boys running pellmell down the streets chased by swarthy
bulls, or startled by grown men throwing
fireworks at one another, fiesta time in the
valley can be a difficult time, but understanding the heart of fiestas can make all
the difference.
Each village will have a fiesta committee
made up of this year’s eighteen year olds
and their parents, friends and families.
This group will be responsible for fundraising, choosing entertainment and coordinating the fiesta, and in particular with
looking after the festers infantils – the six
to seven year olds who also participate in
the parades.
Fundraising is a whirl of selling lottery
tickets, printing and selling T-shirts, holding bingo events, persuading local businesses to advertise in the Fiesta Programme
and selling the programme booklet itself,
door-to-door, to ensure that every householder in the village contributes.

best.

ing another 200 euros to the cost
for each set of parents.
The night before the fiesta
began, the groups of festeros have
a run through on the stage, plotting where each child will sit, and
whom will accompany whom on
to the stage.
Last year’s fiesta had a Reina
Infantil (like a Carnival Queen)
who was asked back this year to
present the official sashes (for
girls) and ornamental badge (for
boys) to each child as he or she
ascended the stage.
From this point on, they will be
expected to behave with decorum,
throughout each days’ parade
through the streets, through
the hour-long mass in church,
through solemn processions
behind the band in honour of
various saints, and repeat this
again each evening, for candlelit
processions under the colourful
street lights.
Surprisingly, for six-year-olds
more used to being spoilt by
doting grandparents, or allowed
to play out in the streets without supervision, most of the
festeros maintained a regal performance for the full four days,
with only one spate of unanimous face-gurning in church,
to which the priest turned a
benevolent eye.
Since my daughter knew all of
the other children from around
the village or from her school,
and had played with most of them
throughout summer school in
July, I expected to find her playacting or mischievously hatching
plots, but the general air of anticipation for fiesta seemed to dispel
most thoughts of rebellion.
Somehow, the focus of the fiesta
inevitably turns to the youngest
children participating, and they
are feted and appreciated in a
way which rarely happens anymore in the UK.
The whole village spends time
admiring their turn-out and complimenting them as if they are
adults, and they seem to rise to
the occasion, smiling calmly and
taking care to lift their skirts over
steps like Disney princesses.
B
Y the time that the final
firework showered over the
shadow of the Carrascal
mountains, the streets were
swept of confetti, sweet wrappers
and plastic glasses, and residents
came out to inspect the scorch
marks and horn scrapes on their
recently painted properties, the
cost of fiesta may be huge. But
somehow the gains to be had were
greater.
Faces that had grinned out of
the crowd in lurid fancy dress
turn out to be the mild neighbours you thought you knew, now
sharing smiles of recognition of
the fiesta experience.
The village will never be the
same again after a man wearing
nothing but underpants, plus a
crash helmet with bull’s horns
attached, and covered from head to
foot in bright blue paint, careened
out of a trailer clutching a megaphone, pretending to be a loose
bull. He turned out to be the guy
we buy wood from each winter.
Already, like Mardi Gras, next
year’s fiesta is being planned.
Each year will be bigger, brighter,
noisier and more revolutionary
than the last.
And the following year, when
my youngest daughter (who was
born here) turns six we can be
festera parents again. I think I’ll
be Marge Simpson in the fancy
dress parade and borrow the
woodman’s blue paint...

Sunbathers must keep six
metres from the waterline
The long wide beaches in
Benidorm are enough for
fans of first line sunbathing
By Sergi Castillo
A NEW municipal ordnance in Benidorm prohibits any sunbathers
on the beaches to put up
their parasol less than
six metres from the waterline.
According to the councillor for beaches, Josefa Pérez,
this is a decision of the Costas department, a sub-organisation of the ministry of environment, to guarantee the
security of the sunbathers
and the pass way for those
who go on a stroll along the
waterline.
However, nobody who does
not respect the new rule will
be fined.
Unlike many other municipalities, Benidorm decided
against sanctioning those
who reserve a space in the
first line of the beach early
in the morning, as the Valencian Federation of Municipalities and Provinces
suggests.
The
councillor
said:
“There are more than six
kilometres of beach. This
is enough space for the fans
of first line sunbathing.”
The socialist opposition has
accused the concessionary
of the sun beds on various
occasions of not complying
with the six-metre-rule.
However, Pérez said that
she personally has observed
that the sunbathers themselves move the sun beds
and parasols closer to the
waterline.
“We have tried for years
to keep this distance, but it
is impossible. Early in the
morning everything is perfect, but as the day advances,
more people arrive and move
closer to the water.”
Many beaches along the
coast are cleaned in the early morning hours; therefore,
the municipalities need to
assure that the waterline is
clear to be cleaned.
In Benidorm the beaches
are cleaned around midnight and everything is finished before the first person
arrives in the morning.
At about 07.00 hrs any newly accumulated rubbish is
collected manually, so parasols, sun beds and towels are
not a problem.

the film. In those times less

scene for Columbus’s discovery of the virgin beaches of
America.
The film Songs of Love in

He had to be rushed to

could only reach the area

When they found the
young spear-fisher, he was

Making the motorway
toll-free around Altea
Alternative route may mean
destruction of the Finca
Santa Bárbara building
By Sergi Castillo
THE NEW government
in Altea is opposing the
plans of the ministry of
public works to lead the
desperately needed bypass for Altea through
Barranquet, Sogay and
Altea La Vella.
It suggests opening up the
motorway AP-7 around the
town to use this as an equivalent to a bypass instead.
On July 31 the ministry of
public works published an
official announcement that
it approved of the latest alternative. This will affect 14
kilometres and cost 68.2 million euros.
However, this alternative
would also mean the destruction of the Finca Santa

New general
plan by the end
of the year
THE SOCIALIST government in L’Alfàs del Pi is
going to revise the general
plan of the town before the
end of the year.
The mayor, Vicente Arques,
who is also the councillor
for urban development, said
that he wants to make it
transparent and invites all
parties in the town hall (PP,
AIDDA and Ciudadanos Europeos) to participate in the
preparation of the plan. He
said: “The first part of the
plan is usable. All political
parties participated in its
preparation. This was work
for the future. The second
part, however, is strange;
only the PP worked on it. We
need to redo most of it.”
His predecessor, Gabriel
Such, suspended the preparation of the plan in November 2006, when it was
virtually finished, because
famous and well-liked buildings in Altea.
The acting mayor, Verónica López, will invite responsible representatives of the
ministry of public works
to Altea at the beginning of
September to make counterproposals.
In the meantime, more
than 1,500 locals who could
be affected have filed their
complaints at the town hall.
Last April all political parties rejected the planned
course of the bypass in a plenary meeting and suggested
making the motorway toll
free around Altea.
Since the early 90s the central government in Madrid
has been trying to come to
an agreement with the town
hall in Altea on the course
of the bypass.
However, due to the urbanistic pressure and the narrow stretch where the road
can be built, they have never
found a mutually satisfying
conclusion.
In 1995, the former conservative mayor, Miguel Ortiz, canned a similar project
of the Aznar government.
Now the socialists are opposing the project of the
central socialist government
under Zapatero and may
postpone the construction
of the bypass by another ten
years.
They are prepared to take
the case to the provincial
courts in Alicante.
López said: “We want the
alternative course, because
the one planned by the ministry has too strong an impact on the town.
Our proposal is to make
the motorway toll free. If we
do not succeed then we will
work on reducing the impact
of the bypass.”

The plan was one of the
main projects of the previous government under Such.
In 2005 he had contracted
the company UTE Albur
for a revision. A year later
he suspended it because of
alleged transparencies. He
did not want “something
as important as that to be
marred,” although sources
close to him said that he was
convinced he would win the
absolute majority in the last
elections. Such’s plan included the re-classification
of nearly one million square
metres and the construction
of 10,000 new homes. This
would have quadrupled the
size of L’Alfàs with houses
for 40,000 people.
THE FAMOUS hall that
every year attracts millions
of tourists to its shows is
preparing for its 30th anniversary. The façade and the
main hall are being renovated, and areas cleaned and
re-decorated to give it a new
sheen.
The hall has a capacity of
1,600 people and is usually
fully booked on Friday and
Saturday night. On other
nights an average of 1,000
people watch the show.
The walls of the venue are
decorated with many photos
and posters of the famous
artists that have performed
there over the last 30 years.
Benidorm is seeing the
beginning of a resurgence
in popularity after a slew

Rapist at
large on
the Costas
THE MOTHER of a teenage rape victim and Kent
police are asking residents
and tourists on the costas
to help track down a fleeing
rapist.
Andrew Alderman, 48,
from Maidstone in Kent,
was out on bail while being tried for the offence but
skipped the country on August 31 of last year, the day
he was found guilty.
He was sentenced, while
absent, to 10 years in prison
for rape, indecent assault
and sexual activity with a
child.
Alderman, pictured above,
was last seen on CCTV cameras at the Channel Tunnel as he made his way to
Europe. Police believe he is
in southern Spain, possibly
the Marina Alta region, although Ibiza, Mallorca or
the Canary Islands are also
possibilities, as he is said to
speak several languages including Spanish.
The mother of the victim stated: “It’s a living
nightmare. It is constant,
every single day it’s there.
It’s not finished, he’s been
convicted but he’s not been
punished.”
She pleaded: “Holidaymakers on the coast could
quite easily bump into him
… if somebody sees him
just phone the police.”
Kent police’s detective
inspector, David Berry appealed for people in Spain
to look out for a specific car.
He said: “We are particularly interested in a Volkswagen Passat we know
Alderman owned and left
the country with in August
last year.
“The registration is GL53
VBU. From the information
that we have we do believe
he is somewhere in the
south of Spain.”

DESPITE promises to

to be sitting on the
fence, complains political party, Bloc.
Gandia’s nationalist party says nothing has been

OVERDUE: RENFE trains would benefit the regions
transport infrastructure and make important city links
toral promises by town
councillors.
According to Oliva’s PP
leader David González, the
lack of communication is
hindering residents in Dé-
nia, Gandia, Oliva and all
the villages in between.
“Ignoring the matter like
this cannot be justified,
because they are not taking into account the basic
needs of the people who
live here,” states González.
Dénia mayoress Paqui Viciano has also complained
about the delay in laying
the foundations for the
train line which is the final track needed to link
the two provincial capitals
of Alicante and Valencia.
It will also provide a direct line from Alicante to
Barcelona.
In Dénia, the majority of
young people go to university in Valencia as opposed
to Alicante, but have to rely
on buses to come home at
weekends as there is no
train. The few who study
in Alicante can make the
entire journey by rail.
Oliva, in the middle, is
completely cut off by rail
from the rest of the country and its residents have
to take a bus to Gandia to
travel to Valencia by train
– a bus that arrives three
minutes after the hourly
train has departed.
Yet the problem does not
look set to improve, as the
Comunitat Valenciana only
receives 2.8 per cent of the
state’s annual budget to invest in rail services.
Since Spain has 17 autonomous regions, this is
disproportionately small.
For the rail-link to become reality, the Generalitat will have to face long
negotiations with the national government’s ministry of transport.
Towns in La Safor and
the Marina Alta that
would benefit from the
train line have been pushing for plans to be finalised
for over 30 years.
Bars ignore
All change at rastro
laws and fines and back to Teulada
A WHOPPING 73 bars in
Dénia have been fined for
shutting too late at night,
local authorities reveal.
Ignoring laws in place limiting opening hours, many
bars and nightclubs in the
town continue to trade.
Some clubs have licences
to open until 3 am, but
revellers are still inside at
6 am, complains a Dénia
councillor.
Pep Marí says some bars,
which should not open past
midnight, continue to serve
drinks at 4 am.
Since June, more than 100
establishments have been
reported, 73 of which were
in July, coinciding with the
peak of the tourist season.
Taking advantage of the
influx of holidaymakers,
clubs and bars find they
make a fortune during the
hours that follow legal closing time.
Local authorities reveal
that this situation is difficult to police.
Most
establishments
would rather risk paying
the fines, which are usually
in the region of 300 euros,
since they can earn considerably more than that
amount by selling drinks
after hours.
TEULADA’S popular rastro, or flea market, which
moved to Pedreguer four
years ago, could return to
the town – but not until February 2008 at the earliest.
Local authorities hoped
the rastro would be up and
running in the planned new
car park of the industrial
estate by October, but the
council’s department for
services and infrastructures has other ideas.
The market cannot take
place until works on the
site are completely finished, works that depend on
funding from the provincial
council, the Diputación de
Alicante.
This means the work will
probably not be finished for
another six or eight months,
says head of department
José Luis Alaminos.
Alaminos stresses that
the town’s priority is build-
ing the car park before it
can even consider the idea
of bringing the rastro home
to Teulada.
Daring spectators gored by bulls
SUNDAY night’s bull-running fiestas in El
Verger came to an abrupt ending when two
spectators were gored.
The act, which started at midnight, was
called off at 2.30 am when Francisco Rodríguez from Benidoleig was attacked by a
bull while climbing into a spectator’s box.
He was rushed to La Ribera Hospital in
Alzira, where his condition is said to be serious but stable.
Earlier that day, another man watching the bulls running through the streets
was gored as he climbed over the railings
to join the animals in their cordoned-off
area, a risky practice common with daring
spectators.
His injuries were less severe and, after
being admitted to the Marina Alta Hospital in Dénia, was discharged the same day.

Attack of killer
LA TOMATINA: Where ripe tomatoes are pelted, hurled, catapulted and fired at friends, family, acquaintances, and the 20,000 other people you don’t know
It’s the world’s biggest food fight, an unforgettable experience in
craziness and mess. Alex Elgar separates the pulp from the fiction
Y
OU may like your
salsa spicy, but
would you wear it?
The Tomatina is
about more than just playing with your food.
It has a typical Spanish
irreverence, from its history to its rules of topless
engagement.
The sleepy town of Buñol
is your fairly run-of-the-mill
Spanish settlement.
The town, lying 30km north west of Valencia, has an
attractive medieval central
area, with a fine castle dominating the skyline.
Its population of 10,000
relies mainly on agriculture and industry for its
source of income, and daily life passes by slowly and
methodically …until the
end of August when the
town is transformed into
a sea of red, the site of the
world’s biggest ever tomato
throwing event.
More than 20,000 people
descend upon the town
for La Tomatina – one of
Spain’s most popular fiestas, drawing tourists from
around the globe to witness
and partake in the extraordinary spectacle.
The aim of the fiesta is
simple – around 100,000
tonnes of ripe tomatoes
are pelted, hurled, catapulted and fired at friends,
family, acquaintances, and
the 20,000 other people you
don’t know – while they are

– and that’s to accept the
inevitable and put yourself
directly in the firing line.
La Tomatina traditionally
starts at around 11am in the
Plaza del Pueblo, but the
fiesta has become so big,
that it now stretches along
the streets leading into the
square.
A little history
There are two versions that
describe the origins of this
unique and bizarre festival.
According to some town records, an old man used to
sing and play through the
streets of Buñol, but he did
so so badly, that one day, as
he was walking through
the town’s central square,
a group of friends ran to a
vegetable stall in the square, and started pelting him
with tomatoes. It turned
into a battle of tomatoes.
The more popular version
of events states that in 1945,
the town was celebrating
its traditional Gigantes and
Cabezudos festival (Giants
with Gross Heads).
A group of youths were
anxious to participate in
the parade, and ran into
the giants, knocking one of
them over.
The giant started hitting
the youths, and ran to a
fruit and veg stall close by,
and started throwing ripe
tomato produce at them.
The police were called in
to disperse “the battle”, and
those responsible for the
mess had to pay for the damages.
The following year, on the
same Wednesday in August,
the youths, wanting their revenge, returned to the square with their own tomatoes.
Another battle commenced, and again, the authorities stepped in to break up
the riot. And so it continued,
year after year, groups of
youths hurling tomatoes at
each other in commemoration of that first Wednesday
in August 1945.
Yet La Tomatina, as it had
become known, was banned
for years, as the authorities
believed it was causing more
trouble than it was worth.
It wasn’t until 1959 that
the fiesta recommenced due
to popular demand, but this
time, the participants would
have to abide by certain rules.
The start and end of the
fiesta would be announced
by a siren, and before and
after that siren, not a single
tomato could be thrown.
In 1980, the town hall began organising the fiesta itself, supplying the tomatoes,
and each year increasing
the number of tomatoes it

supplied with the increase in

world’s biggest food-fight.
Order of the day
The tomato-throwing fiesta can
only start once a participant has
climbed a slippery pole placed in
the town’s central square and retrieved the leg of ham that is sitting on top of it.
Once he or she is successful in
achieving this no-easy feat, hosepipes are turned on and aimed at
the crowd, prompting them to rip
off their t-shirts.
If you don’t do so yourself, your
t-shirt will be soon be ripped off.
Girls be warned. Wear a bikini or

The town hall issues certain rules to participants, of which they
urge people to abide by to make
the festivities more fun and safe:
Rules of Engagement
1. Participants T-shirts must not
be ripped
2. No bottle or other object must be
brought into the area that could disrupt the traditional fun festivities
3. Pay attention to the entering
trucks
4. Tomatoes throwing is only between the sounds of the two sirens
5. You must squash the tomato before you throw
6. You can only throw tomatoes
Random acts of Tomato

At 11am, a siren sounds to mark
the start of the fiesta. Trucks enter the town, dumping off loads
of tomatoes at various points, and
the people nearest these loads will
start distributing the tomatoes
– by hurling them at the waiting
crowds!
A scene of pure lunacy ensues
– your friends will become your
enemies, your partner your target,
and strangers your allies.
The streets are transformed
into a blanket of red, covering
everything in the vicinity. One
hour later, the second siren sounds
to mark the end of the fight, and
the die-hards take this opportunity to roll around in the puddles of
red tomato juice.
As people file back through the
streets, the hoses get turned on,
to dowse participants in water to
help make the journey home a little more bearable.
Soon after, the huge clean-up process begins, and unbelievably by
mid-afternoon, you would never
know that the world’s biggest food
fight had just taken place in the
streets of Buñol.
Tips
Avoid becoming a human target
by not wearing goggles or masks,
hats, holding cameras and camcorders, or elevating yourself above
the crowds. There is no standard
dress requirements for La Tomatina – just don’t wear your best finery, as what you are wearing will
inevitably end up in the bin once
you’ve got home
When
This year, La Tomatina takes place
on Wednesday August 29 at 11am
in the town of Buñol, not far from
Valencia.
Accommodation

Alfredo Argilés, food critic

THE BIG INTERVIEW
‘Spanish cooking has left
French cuisine behind’
Famous food critic, Alfredo
Argilés, explains to Berta
Chulvi some of the keys to the
success of Spanish cooking.
Furthermore, this Valencian
who spends his summers in
Dénia, reveals to us which are
his favourite restaurants and
takes us on a trip to the temple
of the best fresh produce:
Valencia’s central market.
Q
A
Is cooking fashionable?
Yes, but the question
should be where. All
over the world gastronomy is
fashionable because people
have realised that visiting
different countries and cultures is much more interesting if we understand their
cuisine, which is an important part of the culture.
When it comes to Spain,
there is no doubt that cooking is fashionable.
We have never had one of
our chefs on the front cover
of The New York Times or
Le Monde, but we do now
thanks to Ferran Adrià and
his elBulli restaurant in
Girona. Adrià is a real phenomenon.
Hard on the heels of Adrià,
Spanish cuisine has shortened the gap like Fernando
Alonso in a formula one
race. His success has seen a
giant leap forward for Spanish gastronomy. We are no
longer what we were.
Q
A
How would you describe
this change?
We have gone from being a country with very
good restaurants to what we
are now: a country whose
chefs are renowned internationally and who are interested in doing new things,
and the public is beginning
to follow.
We’ve always known how
to eat well, but we are now
learning to play the gastronomy game.
Q
But, Ferran Adrià did
not come from nowhere,
did he? There was already a
generation of chefs...
A
No. Ferran Adrià did
indeed come from a
void. I’m going to explain a
little bit about the history so
the readers of thinkSPAIN/
today understand what I
mean.
France has always been the
cradle of cooking. Gastronomy has been fashionable
there for at least a century.
Chefs were real personalities who directed the cuisine of the whole of France
and the rest of Europe.
This is unlike Spain,
where what predominated
was popular, home cooking.
The emergence in France
of nouvelle cuisine changed
eating habits in France and
throughout the world.
In Spain, a group of
Basque chefs, including
Arzak, went to a confer-

ence also attended by Paul
Boucuse, the well-known
chef and father of French
nouvelle cuisine. They were
eager to meet him and from
that meeting sprang what
is known as la nueva cocina
Española, which is based on
the same principles as the
French original: fresh produce, low in fat, etc.
From there, chefs started to
achieve a higher social profile and Spain became more
interested in gastronomy.
However, Ferran’s case
TURN TO PAGE 20
N WHO IS ALFREDO ARGILÉS?
ALFREDO Argilés is one of the Valencian
community’s most respected gastronomy experts.
Each August, he has a daily column in El Pais newspaper in which he writes about the best Spain’s cuisine has to offer. His suggestions are also published
each month in Valencia City, the premier bilingual
guide about the regional capital. He works as a financial adviser, but has always had a second job as
a journalist because he likes writing about things
he enjoys. He started out as a film critic for a sports
paper, and, to date, has published two books about
gastronomy: ‘Beyond Flavours’, and ‘The Art of
Rice’, which is illustrated with silk-screen prints by
sculptor, Miguel Navarro.
‘Ferran Adrià is the architect of this worldwide success’
NOT only is he considered to be the top chef in Spain, but his
prestige has spread to such an extent that he is now described in
the world’s press as the Spanish genius with the most prominent
international profile.
Although he would point to a generation of nouvelle cuisine
maestros (Michel Guirard, Alain Ducasse, Jacques Maximin), and
in Spain, to Basque chef, Juan Mari Arzak, the disciple has surpassed his teachers. Some critics, such as Alfredo Argilés, believe
his contribution has been a ‘revolution’ more than an ‘evolution’.
Adrià is from a family that liked eating well but without any
kind of professional link to the gastronomic world. He arrived at
elBulli quite by chance. In Spain, it was famously believed that
compulsory military service - ‘la mili’ - as it used to be known,
was a good way to meet people from other parts of Spain and
open up new opportunities. Well, precisely this happened to
Adrià. From mid 1982 until the end of 1983, Ferran Adrià, did
his military service in Marina (Cartagena), where he worked as a
cook for an admiral and his family. During the summer of 1983,
following the advice of another Catalan recruit, Fermí Puig, he
decided to spend his month’s leave at elBulli, a restaurant he had
never heard of before.
At the end of the month, Adrià spoke to the restaurant’s owner,
Juli Soler, and arranged to join the staff the following year. From
there, as joint owners, Soler and Adrià have built an empire that
is now famous worldwide. Nowadays, while waiting to reserve one
of their highly sought-after tables, the best way to find out more
about Adrià’s ‘universe’ is by visiting website: www.elbulli.com

THE BIG INTERVIEW
pressed you about Ferran
Adrià’s cooking?
A
This year, for example,
one dish that impressed
me was the stewed eel covered in marrow served with
a citrus tablet.
The combination of sensations on the palate is indescribable. You eat something extremely greasy
inundated with the flavour
of the eel and suddenly you
eat a small ball that’s like
eating a whole lemon which
takes away the previous
greasy taste.

What are you saying?
Q
How would you explain
the Ferran Adrià phenomenon?
A
I cannot explain it. He’s
imaginative, he’s an
artist. He’s someone who
has added a touch of science to cooking, searching
for combinations that nobody’s ever thought of before. He’s a researcher. He’s

Worldwide acclaim for Spanish Cuisine
HIS appearance on
the front cover of New
York Magazine and
in Le Monde’s Sunday
supplement surprised
the world of Spanish
gastronomy and gave
Ferran Adrià his first
real taste of international fame.
His website has links
to over 2,500 articles
about his culinary skills
and 14,000 other sites
that mention him and
his restaurant, elBulli.
There’s no doubt that it
was this international
press coverage that
made Adrià the huge
star he is today.
The headlines said
it all: the front cover
of Le Monde’s Sunday
supplement showed
Adrià under the heading
“Alchemist” and asked
“Is he the best in the
world?” Many a master
chef has been given this
title: Boucuse, Hermé,
etc. That such an honour should be bestowed

hallowed halls of French
gastronomy would have
been unheard of just a
few years ago. But Ferran
Adrià has done it, and
the eyes of the world’s
great food critics have all
turned to look at Spain.
He has the power to put
Spanish cuisine on top
of the world. “Spanish
cuisine is moving much
faster than the rest of
the world”, wrote chef
Marc Veyrat.“Spain is
taking off while France
is having a siesta. . .” said
the New York Times.
But in Ferran Adrià’s
case it’s not just elite
cuisine. He’s cocked a
snook at the establishment by joining up with
El Periódico de Cataluña
to produce a series of
DVDs entitled “Ferran
Adrià makes it easy”.
the most prestigious international modern art exhibitions, and rightly so, in my
opinion.
Adrià is not a chef, but an
artist. He creates art in the
kitchen. It’s true that he
has a team of biologists and
chemists, but he is the mastermind.

flavours, but... could

a table if something magical happens. I normally get
in because I know a lot of
people and because I know
him.
But it’s very difficult to
get a table: he only opens
for six months of the year.
If you look at the website,
you’ll see that the restaurant is fully booked for 2007.
The first day elBulli opens
for bookings, they get more
than a million requests.
Given that it provides
evening meals for just 60
guests a day during the six
months of the year that it’s
open, we can calculate that
only around 7,000 customers
are catered for. Let’s face it,
it’s slightly less than impossible to dine there.
How does a restaurant
critic survive his own
criticisms?
The best is Quique
Dacosta, from the El
Poblet restaurant in Dénia.
In my opinion, he’s getting
close to matching Ferran
Adrià.
And, if we can’t go to
Ferran Adrià’s restaurant, who are the best Valencian chefs?
is completely different because he didn’t study with,
or have anything to do with
these chefs.
He opened a restaurant in
Girona managed by a German, and without anybody
really understanding how,
started evolving to such an
extent that he broke with the
criteria of old-style cooking
and acquired international
fame. People go along to eat
the inventions of Ferran
Adrià.
Q
I don’t know. I always
say what I think. Apart
from these two great chefs,
there are some excellent
others such as Susi Díaz
(La Finca in Elche), María
Carmen Vélez (La Sirena in
Petrer) or Ramiro Redrado,
who now works with Quico
Moya at La Escaleta in Cocentaina. I also like the look
of Ricardo Camarena’s future (L’Arrop in Gandia).

to contrasting flavours, and
gauging cooking times exactly and it would be impossible to improve on some of
his products.
I’d say that I eat better
with Raúl than with Quique,
when it comes to eating, but
so far as the gastonomic
game is concerned, I’d have
to go with Quique. Both are
great maestros.
Yes. All the other chefs
I mention are cooking
very well. They are applying
new concepts, state-of-theart techniques, but when it
comes to combining different flavours... Quique’s got
the edge.
As he does when it comes
to research, or trying out
new things. I believe that
not just in the Valencian
Community, but in the rest
of Spain, Quique Dacosta
is the only one who comes
close to matching Ferran
Adrià.
Apart from him, there
are other excellent chefs
such as Raúl Aleixandre
(Ca Sento in Valencia), who
has been able to evolve his
parents’ cuisine by making
it modern and imaginative.
He’s a master when it comes
Has a chef ever made
you angry?
No, the truth is that
I’ve always tried to talk
more about gastronomy
from a cultural point of
view and have not been directly critical of individual
restaurants, but the principle is clear: you name the
ones you like, and don’t
even mention the ones that
you don’t.
Q
And, is Spanish cuisine
really that good from
that same cultural viewpoint?
A
Yes. Spain has a very
high average, and I’d go
so far as to say that it’s because here in the Valencian
Community and Cataluña,
we have the best produce
in the country, the best fish,
the best vegetables and excellent seafood.
The Basques have poorer
vegetables, although there
is one great chef, Berasategui, who grows his own
peas. But, generally speaking, their produce is not as
good as ours. We have better
fresh produce in Spain than
they do in France.
To give you an example, I
was in a restaurant in Paris
recently that has three stars
in the Michelin, and I’m
convinced that the sole I
was served there came from
a fish farm. Such a thing
would be unimaginable in
Spain. An important part of
being a good chef is knowing how to buy.
Q
So, the best chefs are
also experts when it
comes to raw materials?
A
The best one, yes, inevitably. I’ll tell you an anecdote about Alfredo Alonso, a great chef who works
at the Rías Gallegas Restaurant in Valencia, and who is
a close friend of mine.
One day, he said to me:
“Those prawns won’t be any
good.” “How do you know?”
I asked him, to which he replied: “Because they speak
gallego.”

THE BIG INTERVIEW
Q
A
So, you can’t fool a good
cook?
Of course not. The
problem is not just
knowing, but being able to
pay for it. It is very hard to
be very good when you are
starting out because you
have to spend a lot of money
on raw materials.
There are lots of good
cooks in Valencia who can’t
do this because they know
their customers won’t pay
for it. Catering for the public
who can afford to pay for the
best a chef can offer, costs a
lot of money.
Ricardo Camarena, for
example, in Gandia is very
talented, but has still not fulfilled his potential because
creating a market willing to
pay for what is really worth
eating is going to be difficult
where he is based, but step
by step...
Q
As a food critic, what
has been your most
memorable experience?
A
What I remember most
are the great disappointments. For example
visiting some of the most
famous restaurants in the
world and not finding what
I expected.
When you travel abroad,
you realise just how good
Spanish cuisine really is. I
remember ordering truffles
at Alain Ducasses’s restaurant in Paris. A waiter appeared with an absolutely
perfect box of truffles that
we could smell before he got
halfway across the room,
but when he arrived and
showed us the ‘black diamonds’, we realised that
what he was about to put on
our plates was something
else entirely.
‘Cheese should always be served with white wine’, say Argilés
FOR our interview,
Alfredo Argilés chose
a mythical place for
any gastronomy buff,
Valencia’s central
market.
When Argilés goes to
Valencia’s central market, one of his other
favourite haunts, in the
fish section this time,
is the stall belonging to
Joaquín Aznar located
by the exit to the Iglesia
de los Santos Juanes.
A stroll through the
market stalls is an
opportunity to pick up
a multitude of tips from
his usual suppliers. The
first stall Alfredo Argilés visits is that of his
friend, José María Manglano, one of Spain’s
foremost cheese experts
and the owner of several shops in Valencia.
Manglano recommends
a Valencian cheese,
Heretat de Pere (www.
heretat.com), which is
made by the Quatretonda cheese company.
To wash it down, he
proposes a white wine,
el Impromptu, from the
Bodega Hispano-Suiza
in Requena-Utiel.
The suggestion surprises us as we have always
been advised to drink
red wine with cheese.
“Everybody is wrong,”
choruses Manglano and
Argilés in unison: “the
tannins contained in red
wine mask the flavour
of the cheese, so they
should never be taken
at the same time,” they
insist.
According to Manglano, who is undoubtedly
an expert on the subject, the best accompa-
It is important to include directions because this market, which
is more than a hundred
years old, occupies an
entire city centre block
and it is easy to get lost.
THE BEST CHEESES: Argilés chats with José María Manglano, one of Spain’s
foremost cheese experts, who has a stall at Valencia’s central market.
niment for cheese is a
good white wine served
not too cold.
To support his argument, Argilés explains
that countries which
manufacture great
cheese, such as France or
Germany, are also great
white wine producers.”
The Spanish tradition
of serving red wine
with cheese came about
through inertia because,
in Spain, red wine is more
plentiful and cheese tends
to be served at the end
of a meal, but it is not a
match made in heaven,
according to the experts.
When we come across
Argilés’s fishmonger,
Joaquín Aznar, he is
loading his van with
deliveries to Valencia’s
restaurants. Aznar
recommends the Valencian mussels (clochinas), the real thing,
caught in the sea and
not from a fish farm.
During the recent
America’s Cup celebrations, divers had
problems harvesting
them because they
were always being
interrupted by police
patrol boats. Now that
the competition is over,
normality has returned
to the Valencian coast
and the mussel divers
have resumed their
clandestine activity in
search of this highlyprized dish.
THE KING OF FISH: Joaquín Aznar owns Alfredo
Argilés’s favourite fish stall. “I have a pact with Neptune,” claims Aznar.

Do you have a question for Carole?
E-mail us: [email protected]
Q
I am lucky to have
healthy children,
a good job, a faithful
partner and I own my
own house. Why then
do I feel so miserable?
Some days I am snappy
and bored, other times
I just wish to be on my
own. I am too young
for the menopause
and I don’t think my
feelings are medical.
I just feel vaguely
irritated by other
people and fed up
with the boring
pattern of my life.
What should I do?
A
You write that you don’t
think that your feelings
are medical. I am not sure
what you mean by this but I
am assuming that you mean
you do not have medical
problems to worry about.
However,
you
don’t
mention about the quality
of your relationships and
particularly
with
your
partner. Your partner may
be faithful but is he so
dependable that he is boring
and there is no ‘juice’ in the
relationship?
You also do not mention
what ages your children
are either which also may
account for your feelings of
unfulfilment.
It sounds from the short
description of your life that
you have many of the things
that symbolise security
and stability, a home, a
dependable partner, a good
job and healthy children.
But what about excitement,
fun, adventure, risk-taking
and eroticism?
Are you living such a safe
and secure life that these
qualities are non-existent?
If this is the case it is
interesting to know
how and why you have
ruled out that these things
are not just as important as
the things that you mention
and even more important
that you cannot change
your life to make it work for
you.
When we think about what
is missing from our lives we
may come to the conclusion
that we are the thing that
is missing. Yes, of course,
we function well. We do
the things that need to get
done. We are even efficient
and imaginative and yet so
often we feel like zombies,
carrying out an old routine
in well-worn shoes. We have
lost touch with ourselves,
and there is nothing
lonelier than not being in
touch with ourselves.
When we have lost ourselves,
no amount of externals
will help. Spouses, friends,
work – none can supply
what is missing when
we are cut off from our
‘internal power source.’ We
are missing, and the only
way to remedy the problem
is to find ourselves again.
Finding ourselves takes
time.
It is hard
work but it can be
very rewarding and
enriching.
When we are cut
off from parts of
ourselves it is a form
of isolation which is
what psychologists call
intrapersonal isolation
or
disassociation.
Freud described this
isolation as a defence
mechanism,
whereby
the individual detaches
from the unpleasant
experience, frees himself
from the emotion and all
connecting thoughts.
Disassociation
is
an
attempt by the psyche
to cope with traumatic
experiences by altering
thoughts, feelings, sensation
and actions.
These defences are erected
as a protection against the
discomfort of unmet needs
and unexpressed emotions,
which includes the pain of
overwhelming stimuli.
It sounds from what you
write that you have emotions
and feelings that you are
trying to suppress.
Perhaps these feelings are
trying to give you a ‘wake up
call’ to say that everything
in your life is not okay for
you and that you need to
find your truth and then to
live it.
It may be that your
relationship
with
your
partner is not satisfying for
you and this is the area that
you need to address.
Equally it may not be the
reason for your unhappiness
but the sheer routine and
boredom in your life.
I would suggest that you seek
professional psychological
support to help you discover
your inner truth.

Why you should
avoid crash diets
The only sensible way to
lose weight is gradually
– there really aren’t any
quick fixes. If you are
overweight and want to get
to a healthier weight, you
need to set realistic goals
for yourself.
Weight loss of around a half
to 1kg per week (one to two
pounds) is about right. Any
more than this and you risk
getting demotivated through
harsh
self-deprivation.
After all, a successful diet
is one that you have to enjoy
eating. Any less than half a
kilo, and you probably aren’t
making enough changes to
the habits that have caused
you to be overweight in the
first place.
You don’t get fat from eating
the occasional Mars bar
or cream cake – not in the
context of an otherwise
healthy,
balanced
diet
anyway.
Both
getting
fat
and
slimming down to, and
then maintaining, a healthy
weight are really about
lifestyle habits. Successful
dieting is more about
shifting
these
patterns
than it is poring over the
precise calorie content of
individual foods.

sensible and time-related
advice about dieting.

s h i f t i n g
much flab.
● A
long
(at least 30
minute) brisk
walk is much more likely
to be burning fat than
shorter, more explosive
exercise. Ideally, building
some daily activity into
your life – walking some
or all of the way to work
instead of driving, for
example – could be a
relatively painless way to
help you get to and stay at
a healthy weight.
● Most people will find it
easier to lose weight with
a two-pronged attack of
more physical activity
and a lower calorie
diet. To lose weight, the
balance of calories in
(eating) and calories out
(activity) needs to be
tipped towards a calorie
deficit. Less in than
out,
basically. Staying
at a healthy weight then
means keeping the two in
balance across the weeks
and months.
● On the eating side
of the equation, eating
less fat is probably a
good place to start – fat
has double the calories,
weight for weight, as
carbohydrates. So ignore
the diet rules of the past
and satisfy your hunger
with bread, potatoes, rice
and pasta. Just try to
find low-fat alternatives
to the creamy sauces
and buttery toppings,
and
chose
cooking
methods that keep the
overall fat content low.
Roast potatoes, chips,
fried bread and buttery
basmati do not count as
healthy
carbohydrates!
And don't forget that a
mountainous portion of
healthy pasta still stacks
up to lots of calories.
Serving food on smaller
plates can help promote
sensible portion sizes.
● There's useful activity
and less-useful activity.
Feeling the burn and other
examples
of
exercise
● Watch out for low fat
foods that are either not
low in fat (75 percent
fat-free still means 25
percent fat – not much
less than cheese) or
that use lots of sugar to
replace the fat. Equally
important is to aim to
include a minimum of
five pieces of fruit and
vegetables in your daily
diet. Not only is fruit
and veg rich in essential
vitamins and fibre, but
steamed, boiled or raw,
they are both filling and
low in calories.
It's true that Brits have
a growing problem of
obesity, and many people
would benefit from losing
some weight. But having
dealt with the futility of
crash diets, we shouldn't
forget some of the rarer
dangers of eating disorders,
including anorexia nervosa
and bulimia.
The symptoms of someone
who is suffering from
anorexia nervosa are loss
of appetite, intense fear of
gaining weight, lower than
normal body weight and
claiming to feel fat even when
they're very thin. The typical
behaviour of someone who
is bulimic includes eating
exceptionally large amounts
of food, then starving,
vomiting
and
taking
laxatives or diuretics. These
problems can be serious and
it is important that anyone
suffering from anorexia
nervosa or bulimia gets help
from their doctor.

Pulse notes
First aid advice from PULSE FIRST AID TRAINING
Q
I have recently had
an experience where
someone I know suffered
a mild stroke during an
afternoon party.
I noticed that he was
sounding quite slurred
but put it down to the
effect of alcohol consumed.
The person concerned is
now fine but the incident
has made me think about
how to recognise the onset of a stroke and what
first aid is appropriate.
Can you please advise
me?
ing what others are saying
suspect a person is experiencing a stroke.
● sudden problems with
vision – dimness or loss
of vision, particularly in
one eye
First aid procedures
for strokes
● sudden dizziness
● sudden problems with
walking
● sudden confused or
emotional mental state
that can be mistaken for
drunkenness.
● a good test is to ask
them to show teeth – they
will only be able to move
one side of their mouth.
● a stroke victim may
suddenly or gradually
lose consciousness.
A
You have highlighted
an important issue in
relation to first aid, i.e. the
recognition of the signs
and symptoms of various
disorders and I should emphasise that the only way to
feel confident about this is
to attend a training course.
However, for the time being
I can supply some information regarding this very serious condition.
Firstly, some background
information about strokes.
A stroke is a condition,
which occurs when blood
vessels that deliver oxygenrich blood to the brain rupture or are blocked by a clot
and part of the brain does
not receive the blood flow it
requires.
A clot can form in an artery
in the brain or be carried in
the blood stream, or in cases
of brain tumours the artery
can be compressed causing
a severe reduction in blood
flow.
In any of these situations
brain cells can die within
minutes causing permanent damage as the cells are
not replaced.
The after-effects of a
stroke depend on which
part of the brain is affected
and the degree of oxygen
starvation. In some cases
it can be fatal and in others
the patient makes a full recovery.
Risk factors for stroke
include having high blood
pressure, having had a
previous stroke, smoking,
having diabetes and having
heart disease. Your risk of
stroke increases as you get
older.
If you notice any of the following signs or symptoms
listed (note emphasis on the
term sudden) call 112 immediately
● sudden weakness or
numbness of the face,
arm, or leg on one side of
the body
● sudden problems with
speech and understand-
It is important to note that
another warning sign of
stroke is called transient
ischaemic attack (TIA),
also called a ‘mini-stroke’.
A TIA can cause many of
the same symptoms as a
stroke, but TIA symptoms
generally only last for a few
minutes.
Call for immediate medical
assistance if you suspect
a person is experiencing
a transient ischaemic
attack, as TIAs may lead
to stroke.
Also call for immediate
medical assistance if you
As stated above the priority
is to get the victim to hospital as soon as possible.
If the person is conscious,
get them to lie down with
their head and shoulders
supported. You can incline
their head to the affected
side and place a towel on
the shoulder to absorb any
dribbling.
Reassure the victim that
medical help is on the way
and encourage them not to
move.
Monitor pulse, breathing
rate and response level.
Do not give anything to
eat or drink as it may be difficult to swallow.
One last tip
If you have not completed
a first aid training course,
be sure to seek immediate
medical attention in any
type of emergency situation. Improper care can
sometimes be more harmful than helpful.
A basic course in first aid
is recommended for preparation before any emergency happens, so enrol on one
as soon as you can.

Obesity changes foot structure and affects the way children walk
AS International concern
regarding childhood obesity
continues to grow, alarming
new evidence shows that
childhood obesity changes
foot structure and results in
instability when walking.
A study of 200 children aged
nine to 12 years revealed that
excessive body mass led to
structural foot changes.
Obese children had feet that
were up to 15mm longer and
seven millimetres wider than
feet in children of normal
weight, rising to 18mm longer
and 15mm wider in severely
obese children.
Another study of nine to 11year-olds
found that excessive body
mass led to instability when
walking, with obese children
spending significantly more
time balancing on two feet
when walking, less time on
one foot than normal weight
children, and walked at a
slower pace.
Feet bear the brunt of body
weight in every stride. The foot
is a highly specialised part of
the body, made up of 26 bones,
around 19 muscles, a large
number of ligaments, tendons,
blood vessels and nerves.
The normal foot is designed
to absorb the shock of walking
and running, but under the
influence of excess weight and
obesity, the delicate,
immature
nature
of children’s feet
can make them
par ticularly
susceptible
to
deformity
and structural
abnor malities.
The implications
of
obesity on
general health are
vast, and this
OBESITY: Just one at a time please!
new evidence supports the
view that excessive body fat
has a detrimental impact on
children’s feet, changing foot
structure. Obese children are
less stable when walking and
cannot walk efficiently.
There are several potential
causes of
the structural
changes in children’s feet.
It may be that the extra
weight puts greater pressure
on the joint interactions in
the foot, leading to disruption
in the way the foot aligns and
functions.
From a clinical point of view
this research is very important
as it flags up to the podiatrist
the ‘at risk’ nature of the foot
in the child who is overweight
or obese.
Clinicians have been aware
for some time of particular
problems associated with these
children, but this research
provides evidence that obesity
and being overweight has
an effect, not only on the
development of the foot, but
also on the way the foot and
lower limb function during
walking.
Should you be concerned about your feet you can contact Rachel Dawes (The Foot Doctor) on 679 274 139 or visit www.thefootdoctor.co.uk

LEISURE
Three in a row for Scarlett lady
SCARLETT Johansson has lined up three new roles in quick succession to fit in before next year’s
supposed strike says The Hollywood Reporter.
First up is New Line Cinema’s ensemble comedy He’s Just Not That Into You, in which she’ll
play a pilates instructor/aspiring singer who has an affair with a married man and hopes that
he will leave his wife for her. Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, and Drew Barrymore all
star.
She’ll follow that up playing a dangerous femme fatale in The Spirit, an adaptation of the
comic strip being directed by Frank Miller about a detective who fakes his own death in order
to fight crime in Central City. The masked man is known as the Spirit. Johansson plays Silk
N. Floss, a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct that makes her the perfect
accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), an evil mastermind.
Finally, she will slip on a crown for the title role in Mary Queen of Scots, scheduled to go before
cameras in March in the UK. Director John Curran (The Painted Veil) has essentially revived the
project which has been in years of development.
Johansson will next be seen this December opposite Natalie Portman and Eric Bana in the period
piece The Other Boleyn Girl.
Star Trek’s Uhuru joining Heroes
THE original Star Trek’s Lieutenant Uhuru (Nichelle Nichols) will
play a hero’s grandmother for a handful of episodes. Details on her
role are still being kept quiet, but TVGuide.com quotes sources as
saying the 75-year-old actress will play the grandmother of Monica,
the new hero from New Orleans, who will be portrayed by Dana
Davis (The Nine).
Heroes has proven to be both a launching point for the careers of
young actors as well as a destination for older actors to rejuvenate
their craft and meet a new audience. Hayden Panettiere, Masi Oka,
Milo Ventimiglia, and others have gone from familiar faces to
full-blown Hollywood stars, and veterans Malcolm McDowell,
George Takei, and Eric Roberts now have a new generation of
fans. Takei originally made his name in Star Trek as Captain
Sulu, but the Trek-Heroes connection goes further than that.
Dominic Keating, from the Trek spin-off Enterprise, will
appear as an Irish mobster in Heroes’ anticipated second
season and Zachary Quinto, who plays supervillain Sylar, will
play a young Spock in the forthcoming Star Trek movie from J.J.
Abrams.
JODIE Foster’s new movie The Brave One is courting
controversy already with website debate raging about its
theme. The film doesn’t open in America until September
14th, but the film trailers and plot leaks reveal that Foster
plays a radio-host-turned-vigilante.
When a brutal attack leaves Erica Bain (Foster)
wounded and her fiancé dead, she crosses the line
between right and wrong and begins to hunt the men she
feels are responsible. Her pursuit of justice captures the
public’s attention, but is she becoming the very thing she
is trying to stop?
The movie also stars Lost’s Naveen Andrews and is directed
by Neil Jordan, better known for his plot twist Academy
Award-winning movie The Crying Game.
Brave but controversial?
Pregnant pauses
An American Idol contestant’s audition was interrupted
last week when she went into labour. Antoria Gillon, 20,
of Dallas, wasn’t due to give birth for another week, so
she thought it was safe to wait in line outside the stadium
starting at 2:30 a.m. for her first shot at the singing
competition.
Just as she finally had her chance after waiting for 16
hours, “I felt something come over my body when I was walking,” she said in a telephone
interview from her hospital bed after giving birth to a healthy boy — her second child.

Cady Heron is a cultural blank slate when she first sets
foot on the grounds of North Shore High School in a
small town outside of Chicago, Illinois. After living in Africa, Cady, now a junior, has no idea how “wild” things
can be in civilisation until she crosses paths with one
of the meanest species of all, the “Queen Bee,” who
at this particular high school is the cool and calculating Regina George. But Cady doesn’t just cross paths
with this Queen Bee--she really stings her when she
falls for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels. Now
Regina is set to sting back by pretending to still like
Aaron so he won’t go out with Cady, all the while
pretending to be her friend.

Kronk’s New Groove
Disney cinemagic 10.00 - 11.15
Life for Kronk is going pretty good these days. He was the muscle bound but
lovable henchman that did all the dirty work for the evil Yzma in ‘’The
Emperor�s New Groove’’. Now Emperor Kuzco has changed his
dastardly ways, and Yzma is nowhere to be found. Kronk’s one
happy guy! He thinks he has found the woman of his dreams, he is
the head chef at Mudka’s Meat Hut and does he have friends—old
ones, young ones, new ones and, of course, there’s his good pal
Pacha, and his Junior Chipmunk kids who make him the best
Camp Chimppamunka Leader around. To top it off, this is his
movie! It’s all about him. Great! Right? Wrong! Kronk receives
a letter from his Papi telling him he is coming for a visit.
Kronk flips out! You see, all Kronk has ever wanted
from Papi is a thumbs-up of approval, but he’s
never gotten it

Georgia Byrd lives a small life tucked inside big dreams. A
shy cookware salesperson for a New Orleans retail outlet,
she handles knives and skillets with the flair of a
master chef. But when Georgia learns her days
are numbered, she throws caution to the wind
and embarks on a dream holiday vacation to
a grand resort in Europe. There, thinking
she has nothing to lose, Georgia
undergoes
a
metamorphosis-and her transformation affects
everyone around her. Georgia’s newly
uninhibited personality shakes up staff
and guests alike, including a venerate chef
as well as a retail magnate who becomes
convinced she’s a rival intent on sabotaging
his business plans.

Assigned to protect the endangered children
of an assassinated scientist working on a
secret invention, Shane Wolfe is suddenly
faced with juggling two incompatible jobs:
fighting evil while keeping house. As he adds
to his usual arsenal of wetsuits and weapons the
new tools of juice boxes and a minivan, While drop
zones, demolitions and destroying enemy targets come
naturally to Shane, he has no idea what tough really
is until he pits his courage against diapering, denmothering and driver’s education. He’s truly a S.E.A.L.
out of water, but this tough-guy loner soon realizes
that he’s also facing the most important mission of
his life: becoming part of a family and bringing them
all closer together.

Congo
Frank Marshall’s all-outaction film stars Laura
Linney, Dylan Walsh, Tim
Curry and Ernie Hudson as
a disparate group who set
out on safari into the heart of
the Congo. Each have their
different reasons for setting
out into the unknown. But
having survived volcanoes
and hungry hippo attacks,
nothing could have prepared
them for the greatest danger:
a troop of intelligent killer
apes who, as one critic
wrote, “...make King Kong
look like the Jolly Green
Giant”.

1970s newscasting. Ron Burgundy, San Diego’s
top-rated anchorman, reigns supreme in the
all-male world of television news until the arrival
of an ambitious female reporter upsets the
status quo. When she steps in to present the
programme in Ron’s absence, an uncivil war
breaks out in the newsroom.

Manny the woolly mammoth, Sid the sloth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and
the hapless prehistoric squirrel known as Scrat are still together and enjoying
the perks of their now melting world. Manny may be ready to start a family,
but nobody has seen another mammoth for a long time; Manny thinks he may
be the last one. That is, until he finds Ellie, Their only problems: They can’t
stand each other--and Ellie somehow thinks she’s a possum! Ellie comes with
some excess baggage in the form of
her two
possum
“brothers”-- Crash and Eddie, a
couple of daredevil pranksters.
Manny, Sid and Diego quickly
learn that the warming climate
has one major drawback: A huge
glacial dam holding off oceans of
water is about to break, threatening
the entire valley. The only chance of survival lies at the other end of the valley. So
our three heroes, along with Ellie, Crash
and Eddie, form the most unlikely family-in any “Age”-- as they embark on a mission
across an ever-changing, increasingly dangerous landscape towards their salvation.

The ever-naïve Cindy Campbell, seeking a career
in home healthcare, finds work with a creepy old
lady in an even creepier old house haunted by a
ghostly presence. Throw in a good-looking guy next
door and the threat of aliens intent on global domination and Cindy’s instantly up to the top
of her extremely blond head in danger.
Our fearless heroine catapults into action
once again struggling to decipher ominous messages from the beyond, looking
for love in some very weird places and
trying to save the world from mass destruction.
As she struggles to discover life-saving answers, Cindy
encounters horrific plane crashes, bodacious blind girls,
village idiots, disheveled rappers, kinky contraptions, psycho survivalists, alien sphincters and even Oprah!

As the FBI scrambles to save the life of the kidnapped
daughter of the Chinese Consul, the diplomat hires
trusted Hong Kong police detective Lee to find the
girl. Unwilling to have their investigation invaded by
a meddling outsider, the FBI assigns a rogue LAPD
detective to keep Detective Lee away from the case at
any cost. Carter, the detective, covertly embarks on
a one-man crusade to solve the case, having first
distracted Lee. Within hours, Carter realises he has
greatly underestimated his Hong Kong counterpart,
who has seen through his ruse, given Carter the
slip, and landed in the middle of the FBI’s
investigation. Both excluded by the FBI,
these two cops from very different worlds
must join forces to save the young girl.

Meet Ralph Kramden--a man of vision, taste, and refinement. Now, if he can just get the rest of the world to see
it. By day, Ralph’s an ordinary New York City bus driver.
But in his off-hours, he’s an innovator, an entrepreneur
who’s just one great idea away from instant wealth.
His best friend is Ed Norton, who’s always up for
the latest plan. These two dreamers believe they’re
taking their families to the next level, but Ralph’s
wife, Alice, has set her sights on a more practical
goal: buying a duplex fixer-upper with Ed and
his wife, Trixie. When Ralph loses their down
payment on yet another of his half-baked projects,
Alice is at the end of her rope, giving Ralph just one day
to come up with the cash and save their marriage.

CINE ROMA
MATT
DAMON
(Jason
Bourne) may have been
annoyed about comparisons
between Bourne and Bond,
but this third instalment
is definitely post-Casino
Royale territory.
The action is constant;
we
have
globe-trotted
impressively
within
the
opening ten minutes, but
it is delivered in a style so
effortless that you bowl
along with it.
There’s a great early
sequence in Ultimatum in
which Bourne, fresh from
avenging his girlfriend’s
death in the previous
movie,
manipulates
a
journalist through London’s
crowded Waterloo Station
via cellphone, dodging
hitmen, and taking down
opponents in the blink of an
eye. These scenes are funny,
suspenseful, and exquisitely
shot and edited.
Bourne’s memory is working
again and his quest takes
us into territory that queries
our current surveillance and
espionage quandaries.
The violence comes in
bursts and the documentary
style is characteristic of

director Paul Greengrass,
who also directed The
Bourne Supremacy, as well
as the Sept. 11 drama United
93. The film seems absurdly
real,
despite
Bourne’s
apparent indestructibility.
There’s also a car chase
in New York City that is so
brutally real it seems to
verge on the magical.
After three movies’ worth
of hand-to-hand combat,
Damon seems content with
the physical action.
When Bourne does a
running leap off one of
those
Tangier
rooftops
across an alley and into an
apartment window, it’s a
familiar action-flick move
but the movie doesn’t hover
over it, you catapult with
him into scene after scene.
There are some late plot
twists worthy of a thriller,
and some fine acting here,
which means the movie
is more reminiscent of the
revived Bond genre, than
lame old sequel territory.
Expect the return of Bourne
as there are at least two
more novels to cover, albeit
not written by the masterful
Robert Ludlum.

CINE CLUB 7º ARTE
PILAR DE LA HORADADA
Pilar’s English cinema.
An independent cinema showing films in
English. Close to the Calle Mayor in Pilar de
la Horadada - directions on their website:
www.cinemapilar.com
This cinema is now closed for the summer.
It will re-open on September 8.
28 WEEKS Later is another
addition to this summer’s
sequels and threequels
trend; and although the
thought of yet another dragged-out plot arouses a sense
of wearisome dread in most of us, 28 Weeks Later is a
refreshingly good continuation of the 2002 hit 28 Days Later
and was described by The Rolling Stone as “the rarest thing
you’re going to see at the movies this summer: a sequel
that doesn’t suck.”
The zombie horror takes the disaster from the original
film and pulls it into futuristic London where, as far as the
unsuspecting population is aware, it is safe to return to...
Starring Robert Carlyle and directed by Juan Carlos
Fresnadillo, 28 Weeks Later is the must-see sequel of the
summer and is now available on DVD.
IF you have been for a night
on the tiles recently, no
doubt you will have heard
something
from
Mika’s
debut album, Life in Cartoon
Motion.
The tunes stick
in your head and
tracks like Love
today and Big
girl will have you
dancing around
the room for
ages after you
first hear them. It is
currently in the UK
top ten and recently spent
some time at number 1.
It didn’t quite make it into
the top ten of the Spanish
charts, peaking at number
11, but for a début album
that is still impressive.
This feelgood CD will be
playing in your head for days
which, for many people,
is great but opinions vary
greatly. Life in Cartoon
Motion is the marmite
of music today with
listeners either loving
its bouncy vibe or
hating its poppy
feel.
Decide
for
yourself, the brightly
coloured
album
is available from
w w w. a m a z o n .
co.uk and Mika will
be in Barcelona in
October. See www.

ticket information.
Book review
A weird and wonderful guide to Barcelona - Le Cool Publishing 2006
IF you are seeking a guided tour of the
Sagrada Familia, the Monjuïc or the Museu
Picasso, look elsewhere, but if you are seeking
to get to know underground Barcelona, then
this book is for you.
The title, A weird and wonderful guide to
Barcelona, sums up the content perfectly
– where to get away from the madding
crowds, where to go to escape the tourists
and great places to eat, drink and put your
head down for the night are all covered, but
from an angle never explored before in any
guidebook.
Taking you through the Raval district step
by step – ‘smelly, badly-lit, non-stop, alive and
lowdown dirty, it hides some of the city’s most
carefully-guarded jewels’ – amongst other
back-street locations where you will encounter
such off-the-wall attractions as the Museum
of Funeral Carriages and a clutter-shop run
by an aged Tarot-card reader, A weird and
wonderful guide to Barcelona provides a
warts-and-all account of the city as only
those who live there and know it intimately
can give.
Written by a multi-national team of young
people who live in Barcelona, the book tells
you where to go clubbing, where to get sex,
where to find a cheap meal out, and where
to get drunk in peace. Art-house cinema,
alternative music festivals, shopping ranging
from ‘second-hand tat’ to designer gear,
accommodation ranging from five-star hotels
to backpackers’ hostels at €20 a night, gayfriendly pubs, clubs, beaches and even
clothes shops are featured – plus areas where
you can get stoned, admire or contribute to
the city’s graffiti and a chapter dedicated to
how to understand the catalanes.
Jazzily decorated with avant-garde photos
and sketches, slogans and of course, more
graffiti, the artwork alone makes this a bright,
colourful, eye-catching publication that is
effortless to read and a perfect complement
to a more conventional guidebook.
This publication is available at Librería Europa Bookshop, Calle Óscar Esplá 2, Calpe, 03710. Tel. 96 583 58 24 Email enquiries: [email protected]

CLUBS AND SOCIETIES:
Jim’ll fix it
JIM CAMPBELL and his partner,
Julie, are very active raising
money for charity in the La
Manga area. “I’ve spent many
years in the entertainment
industry and have always made
sure that money was raised for
good causes, wherever I worked,”
says Jim, who has worked in bingo
halls and nightclubs in the UK,
before deciding to live in the La
Manga area. “I’m off to the UK to
collect the rest of my belongings
because, after 18 months of living
here, I have fallen in love with the
place and there’s no going back
for me.”
Jim is a bit of a character; two
years ago he had his hair dyed
pink to raise money for breast
cancer research. “I told them I
would do it if they raised £1,000
and they did!” he laughed. Jim is
seen here handing over the €370
he raised to HELP Murcia Mar
Menor’s President, Tony Horn,
at the Autocine market in Los
Alcázares, where HELP runs a
stall every Saturday.
“We’re delighted Jim has chosen
HELP, and long may it continue.”
says Tony. Since coming to La
Manga, he has run several race
nights at The Square Bar in Cabo
de Palos and at Paddywack’s
Restaurant on La Manga. He is
very happy to run further race
nights and bingo evenings for
HELP if a suitable venue can be
found, and he is also circulating
the area to collect clothes, bric-abrac, books and similar items for
donation to the HELP stall.

have
branches
extending
from Valencia to Marbella,
but the Mazarrón branch has
only been in operation for 18
months.
AT LAST!: Paul Garner of Automóviles Crespo in Elche hand over the keys to Ann Warmsley
(chief fundraiser), Kay Cooper (Treasurer), Jean Barrie (Publicity) and Jacqui Phillips (president).
So when their fundraisers
suggested they not only raise
money to enable the branch to
run on a day-to-day basis, with
volunteers taking patients in
their own cars to hospital but also
raise enough money to buy a car
to use for the same purpose, we
never thought it would actually
happen. Well 10 months later and
following a lot of hard work it was
announced 14,000 euros had been
raised for the car fund.
The branch then set about
looking for a suitable car and found
it in Elche at AUTOMÓVILES
CRESPO. S.A. who could not
have been more helpful, a very
generous discount was given and
help with the complicated paper
work.
The Cancer Support Group
exists to help and support all
those diagnosed with cancer and
their families during what can
be a very difficult time. If you
find you need our support please

GHOST DETECTIVES
Eldritch Castle is notoriously one of the most haunted buildings in Great Britain,
and a recent investigation by the Phantasmagorial Society of London showed
that its ghosts are as active as ever. From the clues below, can you reconstruct
the log of their overnight vigil – the time of each sighting, who made it, where
it was made and which of the ghosts of Eldritch Castle was seen.
CLUES
1. Nothing was reported until
01.00 hrs, when Miss Bodie and
Mr Doyle (the PSL investigators
always work in pairs) saw a
ghost, which was not that of
Lady Mabel, murdered by her
husband in the 16th century;
exactly an hour later, another
team of “ghost detectives”
made a sighting in the Minstrel’s Gallery.
2. The White Lady, believed to
be a ghost of a 12th century
mistress of Eldritch Castle, was
seen at 02.30 hrs; the phantom
Black Monk, a Benedictine friar
who died of poisoning in the
12th century, was reported by
Dr. Wolfe and Ms Goodwin.
3. The ghost of Wicked John (he
was Lady Mabel’s husband)
appeared after 03.00 hrs; the
03.45 hrs sighting of a female
ghost was not made in the
West Tower
4. The ghost seen in the castle’s
dungeons by Mrs Holmes and
Miss Watson has a colour in its
name.
5. Mr Carella and Miss Meyer did
not encounter a ghost on the
castle ramparts.
6. The Red Lady was seen in the
Gatehouse, where she was
stabbed to death by her husband’s gypsy mistress in 1429.

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

Find out what our stars have in store for you this week...
CAPRICORN
CANCER
Don’t be too proud to ask a
friend or co-worker to help
out this week. You are tired
of being accused of being
materialistic, so show others your softer, deeper side
– it will be appreciated. The
end of this week sees you
full of energy, drive and
passion, and you can move
mountains if you put your
mind to it.
Go for it! Do it now and ask
questions later – you are
a born leader – not afraid
to try things out on your
own. Your sense of mission makes for impulsive,
sometimes rash and brave
actions. Your motto may be
to not think too long on any
one thing. Bosses are impressed with your work.

Try to strike a balance. Your

Aug 23 – Sept 22
This is a time when you can
expect some extra support
or recognition from those
around you. You may feel
that you are in touch and in
harmony with others; the
lines of communication are
open. The support you need
is there for anything you
want to accomplish.
TAURUS
May 21 – June 21
MELODRAMATICS
Secrets, conspiracies and the
hidden links that unite all
things take on greater importance in your life now. Digging into the past for hints
about the present and future
uncovers a lot of answers to
the questions that will not go
away. Relationships, whether
partnerships, personal or the
social scene in general, are
very important at this time
and can have a very decided
influence on your career and
workplace.
Marriage, children, animals or gardening can be
enjoyed this week. As the
day progresses, you may
find the occult, psychology,
initiation and mysticism
of great interest and may
even find yourself at some
sort of a psychic fair today.
You are constantly involved
in personal change as a lifelong habit.
GEMINI
THEATRICALISM
July 22 – Aug 22
LIBRA
You are at the top of your
class and if a project is at
hand, take your time to
complete everything and
then look over your work
thoroughly, as you will tend
to hurry yourself today.
Personal achievements are
easy today. You are at your
most elegant, particularly
in social situations.
A strong devotional nature
becomes apparent to anyone who takes time to know
the real you. You love attention and somehow you can
manage to gravitate to the
centre of almost any group
or happening this week. You
enjoy expressing yourself
and could find yourself entertaining others.

9 LETTER WORDS
June 22 – July 22
The energies in your chart
through the end of this
month show that this is a
good time to begin a new
habit – perhaps a healthy
nutritional exercise therapy. Whatever you begin now
will have a higher success
rate of being completed
according to your plans.
A possible rise in interest
rates will make debts less
desirable now.
Sept 23 – Oct 23
SCORPIO
Oct 24 – Nov 21
You may be especially influential just now. There is
a lot of energy and drive
available to accomplish just
about anything you set out
to do now. You may have
to realize that some people
will not ever match your
speed or schedule. Patience
may be in order.
SAGITTARIUS
Nov 22 – Dec 21
You could be most persuasive with others today – perhaps you are a top salesperson. Whatever the circumstances, the situation is a
natural for self-expression
and lends itself to your particular ideas and thoughts.
This time brings a sudden
change of fortune for the
better and is considered to
be a truly lucky time.

DAVE LEWIS
Friday August 24
Singer-songwriter Dave Lewis has enchanted audiences
all over the globe with his extraordinary vocal, piano,
guitar and composing skills. Dave performed to packed
audiences for over 14 years in London’s West End at top
music bar and restaurant Smollensky’s on The Strand,
mastering the full gamut of popular music: R&B, jazz, soul
and the standards, but never forgetting his distinctive rock
register. Dave then moved onto the international Piano
Bar circuit performing regular spots in Tokyo (where there
is a long-standing Dave Lewis Fan Club), The Caribbean,
Sweden, and Cairo, to name but a few. Dave Lewis
does his own arrangements in his digital studio, building
on his already imposing list of published and recorded
compositions. Among his songwriting credits are Happy
to be on an island in the sun, which was a number one
hit for the legendary Demis Roussos (the single sold over
500,000 copies and went platinum). More recently Dave
had a No 1 US rap hit with a sample of one of his songs
being used on the title Feel it in the air by Beanie Siegel
(2005 Rocafella Records). Van Morrison is another big
Dave Lewis fan and Dave not only opened his last show
in his hometown of Belfast but he also played keyboards
on his album Magic time. He now brings his own form of
magic to the Costa Blanca and can be seen performing on Thursdays and Saturdays at the new Piano Bar
nights at The Dénia Marriott – La Sella in the Piano Bar
from 10,30pm till 2am and also every Friday night at the
Monte Pego Restaurant.

MUSIC
Let me entertain you
Saxy, bold and bohemian,
The Nomad rocks his way
onto the music circuit and
into his audience’s hearts.
Jade Holden reports.
bade me from getting a moped so
of course I immediately went out
and bought one. I quickly got into
Harley-Davidson’s and have owned
Harley’s for over 25 years. My current bike is a customised Heritage
Softtail, 1450cc.
Does Biking ever have to take a
back seat to your music career?
Nope. Never. My bike gets ridden
seriously. Kathy and I travel all
over Spain, when we are touring
or going to biker rallies. I do my
music for fun and because I love it
– and I hope that transmits to the
audience – but it is not a full-time
job. Two or three gigs a week is
normally enough for me, so that I
can enjoy the rest of what living in
Spain has to offer.
C
OSTA Blanca resident Bruce Dowding has been
singing and performing as The Nomad for one and
a half years now, playing gigs all over Spain.
As anyone who has ever seen Bruce’s show will attest, a concert
by The Nomad will surprise and invigorate, as Bruce is not shy
of giving his all.
His main musical tool is his voice but he also plays the
harmonica and tenor saxophone, and using both he gets up close
to his audience.
Bruce and his wife Kathy have lived in Spain for nearly four
years now, with their dog, Mutley. This weird and wonderful
character with his trademark top hat and long black drape coat
is dynamite on stage.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome The Nomad, pictured
right, to the stage.
So Bruce, how did you start out
as a musician?
It was an accident really! When I
retired from the business world
and came to Spain 4 years ago, I
very quickly got bored and needed
a new challenge. I’d always liked
watching live music, particularly
rock and blues, and the harmonica
looked to be easy and cheap and I
love that bluesy sound. So I decided
to try to learn to play harmonica.
I’ve never wanted to be at the back
of a band, I’d never play drums or
bass – I have always known that if
I was in a band I would be the front
man – I just love the theatre of it all
– and the blues harmonica seemed
like a great solo instrument.
Were you right about the harmonica?
Yes, it is a great solo instrument
and yes, it was cheap (to start with),
but easy? No way. I spent about 2
hours each day for a year learning
to play the harmonica. I play blues
or diatonic harps. What I hadn’t
realised was that I need a different
harp for each song key – so I had to
buy many more harmonicas. Now
I use Lee Oskar Pro diatonic blues
harmonicas – damned expensive
but they sound great, and I can
rebuild them with new reedbeds
whenever a reed goes flat.
UPCOMING GIGS
When did you start performing?
I’ve been a performer since I was
about 2 years old. I’ve always enjoyed playing up and pushing
boundaries. I have always been an
extrovert and I know I’m not normal. I have taken character tests
that have shown that my tenacity
or determination has always been
off the scale and my tolerance of
the boring and the mundane is
zero. I am easily bored and always
looking for challenges and new
experiences. Moderation is for
wimps; never be moderate! To answer your question though, I have
been performing music for a living for 2 and a half years, I came
to Spain to retire but, returning to
what I said earlier, I got bored.
days it was all rock music, but
now my tastes have widened enormously and I enjoy playing rock,
pop, dance, disco, reggae, funk, big
band, soul, blues and ballads. Sorry, never country music or opera
though – they are about the only
styles that do not do anything for
me. Mainly ‘70s, ‘80s and early ‘90s,
I like all that good cheesy music.
What do you do in your spare
time?
I have always been a biker and I
have owned Harley Davidson’s
since my late teens. Also Kathy
and I spent all of last year planning and organising our wedding,
which was a project in itself. But
when I am not playing live music, I
love watching it.
...And to listen to?
When I’m not performing, I’m
mostly practicing, playing, learning new songs or amending old
ones to make them more fun and
personal so I rarely sit down and
actually listen to music. Music, to
me, is best live – you never say I
am going to go, sit down and hear a
band; you always go to see one.
What got you into music and
what made you decide to perform?
Wanting to play live with others,
learning harmonica and getting
into jamming sessions in bars.
During those sessions, I had to
learn basic rock and blues tunes to
be able to keep up with the people
I was playing with. I then started
singing as well as playing songs;
not all musicians are interested
in singing but I have always been
confident and I saw it as an opportunity to entertain.
Why did you choose to move to
Spain?
I had done well in the corporate
business world in the UK and I had
enough money to retire. I chose
Spain because I had holidayed here
and loved the culture, the freedom,
the climate, the food and the living
costs. Retirement lasted 18 months,
during which time Kathy and I
were on a sort of extended holiday
getting to know each other.
Who are your musical influences and what sort of music is
your favourite to perform?
I’m a child of the ‘70s. Well, I was
a teenager in the ‘70s and, like
most people, the influences that
stay with you through your life
are the ones that got you through
your teenage years – T-Rex, Thin
Lizzy, The Rolling Stones, Deep
Purple, Led Zeppelin etc. In those

again. I do everything from small
bars to very large rock and pop festivals – and I enjoy travelling and
playing at a variety of venues. So
I guess I am nomadic. I started off
with a guitarist in a duo called The
Nomads and I did that for about a
year but now I play as a solo artist.
There are no fixed set list restrictions and I can play a wide range
of music and tailor my shows to
my audience. In parallel to that,
I formed a five-piece band called
Cruzados Rock for a while. We
played large venues and music festivals, including Castellón Biker
Festival, which was attended by
30,000 people. To be honest, the hassle of organising a five-piece band
is enormous. I have now bought
my own full PA system and I am
totally independent.
Before becoming well-known,
how did get bookings?
I produced a demo CD and some
publicity material (business cards,
flyers etc.) then I door-knocked,
travelled and visited bar after
bar. I went to restaurants and hotels and offered to do “beer gigs”.
That meant I would play for beer
and they did not have to pay me on
the first night, if I went down well
then they would book me again. I
do not do that anymore though! I
offer something completely different to usual live music acts: I am
an energetic, entertaining, oneman music show.
You are also very into motorbikes, tell us about that side of
your life.
I have always been a biker. I think
it is to do with the sense of freedom
and exhilaration you feel when
riding a bike. At 16, my mum for-
You recently got married; tell
us about your new wife.
Out of the blue, 6 months before
we moved to Spain I met Kathy on
the Internet! No, not on a singles
or dating website but on a discussion board. She responded to a post
of mine and we got chatting. I had
managed to avoid marriage for 47
years but in April this year I was
finally trapped. We met face to face
a couple of weeks after we started
talking and I soon discovered that
she was my perfect partner, my
soulmate. She left her Financial
Adviser’s career, her old life and
her friends in England so we could
move to Spain. She has become too
special to me to ever lose, so I proposed to her (yes, the full one-knee
jobbie) in front of all our friends at
her birthday party in a bar in Altea just over a year ago.
Tell us about the wedding
We live in a beautiful little village near Altea called Polop de la
Marina, and were married by the
mayor. The civil wedding ceremony was in Spanish, with one of our
friends translating for our family
and friends from England. We then
had a huge party with hundreds of
friends and relatives at La Plantación Hotel near Finestrat. After
that I took four weeks off while
we honeymooned in Thailand.
Kathy is now my manager, roadie,
driver, CD salesman, groupie and
wife!
What advice would you give to
budding musicians?
Honestly? Just do it! You only get
one life, this is not a rehearsal. If
it is in your heart then do it. Practice, practice, practice and then
practice some more. Then get out
there and perform to your family,
to your friends, to anybody who
will listen. That will improve your
confidence when playing to in
public. But always remember the
bottom line – if you are really enjoying yourself, your audience will
see that and will find your enthusiasm contagious.

YOUNG voluntary archaeologists have dug up a prehistoric building from a
well-known dig in Calpe.
A Paleo-Christian mausoleum was discovered last
week by 50 youths working
on the site as part of an international exchange programme.
Traces of Calpe’s ancient
history came to light last
year when the foundations
of a church dating back to
the 5th or 6th centuries was
found.
New tombs have been
found whilst excavating
more of the church.
Restoration works will be
carried out on the dig to allow tourists and residents
to go underground, explore
the finds and learn more
about how Romans lived in
Calpe, say local authorities.
The Baños de la Reina
(Queen’s baths) a Roman archaeological site that is being turned into a tourist attraction, is one of the most
renowned in the region.
Volunteers working on
the site are aged between 18
and 24 and are from France,
Turkey, Italy and Spain.

Throughout the day, the
Fira de Luthiers – an instrument-making fair where
handicraft experts display
their work in progress
– will run while concerts involving percussion instruments and the traditional
dolçainer will be held at 6
pm and 8 pm in the Plaça
del Garrofer and C/ Pintor
Segrelles respectively.
Participants can enjoy a
free meal in the gardens
of the Casa Municipal at
9.30 pm and a disco will
be held later at 12.30 am at
the Romàntica del Saladar
sports centre.
Finally, the Festa al Carrer ends with live singing in
the open air.
Hard-working local bands
from Ondara, Pego, Teulada, Benissa, Calpe, El Verger, Dénia, Jávea, Pedreguer, Gata, and La Xara itself
will take part in the festival.

Guardamar
as role model
for town
SINCE the beginning of the
summer the town hall in
Guardamar has been campaigning for the environment with the slogan ‘think
globally and act locally in
Guardamar’.
The goal of the campaign
is to raise the awareness of
the residents and visitors
about keeping the town
clean.
Two volunteers daily distribute leaflets encouraging
people to recycle their rubbish at appropriate points
as well as giving them other
useful tips.
The campaign has been
a remarkable success in
highlighting public awareness.

Residents block roads
with dirty protest
Demonstrators say Torrevieja has
double standards for public street
cleaning and rubbish collection
By Alicia Negre
LAST week several demonstrations blocked the
entrance from the N-332
via La Mata into the centre of Torrevieja. One
of their main concerns
was the lack of professional staff in the local
health centres and their
inability to cope with
the number of casualties
needing medical help
over the holiday season.
Another more important
complaint of the hundreds
of spontaneous demonstrators was the bad standard
of the public cleaning and
rubbish collection service.
They claimed that the cen-

tre of Torrevieja enjoys a
much better service than La
Mata.
The first demonstration
started spontaneously. Hundreds of people gathered in
the streets, and soon the traffic had to be diverted. From
kilometre 68 cars travelling
towards Cartagena were
diverted onto the CV-895,
whereas those travelling
towards Alicante were diverted onto the CV-905 from
kilometre 58 of the national
road. Traffic into town had
to endure long traffic jams.
As a quick solution was
needed,
the
councillor
for urbanisations, Eduardo Gil, the councillor for
health, Pilar González, and
the responsible person for
parks and gardens, Javier
Montoro, went to see the
demonstrators to listen to
their complaints and to
come to an agreement.
Unfortunately, they did not
achieve much. The following day the local residents
were out demonstrating in
the streets again.
This has caused a political
earthquake in Torrevieja.
More and more people have
joined the demonstrators.
The spokesperson of the
Green Party, José Manuel
Dolón, said that his party
supports the decision of the
neighbours not to accept
the half-hearted offer of the
town hall. He pointed out
that the town hall promised
a year ago to solve the problem, but the locals are still
waiting for this solution.
ACCESS TO THE N-332: A perfect stage for the
demonstrators
N
BLOCKED ACCESS
THE roadblocks of the access into town caused
more problems. Volunteers and lifeguards could
not access the beaches to do their work. They need
to come in on the N-332 from Santa Pola, Alicante
and the urbanisations north of Torrevieja to reach
La Mata, Torrevieja and Orihuela Costa.
Prison looms for secretary
at Torrevieja town hall
SEVEN years ago a policeman was allowed to
pass the entrance exam
with forged documents
and join the local police
force.
The secretary of the
town hall of Torrevieja,
Pilar Vellisca, has been
accused of forging public
documents,
malpractice
and neglect of public duties, because she allegedly
manipulated the results of
entry exams for a local policeman seven years ago.
Also involved in the
case are Antonio Hódar,
a current councillor for
the Partido Popular, and
formerly councillor for
sport, public works and
development, Manuel Antonio López Vera, a local
policeman, and Santiago
Romero, the head of the
urbanistic services.
The court is demanding
six years in prison and an
eight-year ban on work as
a civil servant for Vellisca,
and four years in prison
and a twelve-year work
ban for the other involved
parties.
The accusation is based
on an incident during
entry exams for new policemen. In 2000, Ricardo
Morer decided to file a
complaint against Vellisca
for malpractice and forg-
ANTONIO HÓDAR (in the middle): Suspected of
forging public documents
ing of official documents,
relating to a number of
applicants who sat their
exams for two vacancies
for policemen in the local
police station.
Vellisca, Hódar and another four people marked
the exams that took place
on March 6. It appeared
that Vellisca told her colleagues only minutes before the beginning of the
exam that she was otherwise engaged. She also
told the applicants that
she could not mark the
exam personally, but that
her five colleagues would
do it on her behalf.
It is possible that she
prepared four exams with
the corresponding results
so that only one of them
had to be filled out during
the exam and the others
would be destroyed after
the exam.
Julio Morer, who is
Ricardo’s brother, passed
the test and was incorporated into the police force.
On the other hand, Santiago Cabrera failed. Here
the irregularities begin,
because two days later
Vellisca decided to repeat
the exam, and this time
Cabrera passed. At a later
point a test of Vellisca’s
handwriting determined
that she might have made
changes to Cabrera’s exam
to ensure he passed.
Two years ago the state
prosecutor of the provincial court in Alicante
became interested in the
case and instructed the
local courts in Torrevieja
to investigate the details.
Now the case is being
heard in court.

Mum, 20, knifed
to death by her ex
Daughter
witnessed
stabbing
By Samantha Kett
GANDIA is in shock
after learning that a
young mum from the
town has been stabbed
to death by her former
boyfriend in front of
her daughter.
The
victim
suffered
knife-wounds to her neck,
chest, back and buttocks
and was taken to casualty
at the Francesc de Borja
hospital.
She was later transferred
to
Valencia’s
Hospital
Clínico, where she died in
the early hours of Monday
morning.
Police heard that Sorina
Simpoenso, a 20-year-old
Romanian national, was
working in a shop on the
esplanade on Gandia beach
on Sunday. Her two-yearold daughter was with her.
She was approached by
her ex-boyfriend, M.Z.C.,
23, also from Romania, who
had a court order preventing him from going near
the victim due to domestic
violence charges she had
brought against him.
He then pulled a knife on
her and stabbed her seven
times in front of their
daughter.
Police heard that Sorina
had taken refuge in the
house of her work colleague Juan Guillermo
Ramos, 17, an Ecuadorian
national, with her daugh-
ter after leaving the home
she shared with M.Z.C. due
to his violent behaviour.
Juan Guillermo was hiding in the shop at the time
of the attack, but the aggressor found him and
stabbed him repeatedly.
Officers are unsure of
the motives for the attack
that left the young woman
dead, her child orphaned
and her friend with knifewounds to the chest and
kidneys.

EVENING meals to the
tune of birdsong whilst
floating down the river
are hoped to draw in
more visitors to the
spectacular
Albufera
wetland, the region’s
largest nature reserve.
It may not be a bateau
mouche on the Seine, but a
set-price night menu featuring traditional local cuisine
by the light of the moon on
board a boat is expected to
appeal to romantics, nature-lovers and those keen
to explore more of the Valencian countryside.
The Albufera wetland
stretches from Xeraco (La
Safor) to the city of Valencia along the coast, and is
famous for its paddy-fields
which lie in the Sueca and
Cullera area.
This is not a new idea,
since smaller-scale family
celebrations on boats sailing through the Albufera
have been common in the
past, but never on this
scale, say local authorities
in the area.
Last year, though, councillors in Valencia quashed
proposals to launch ‘floating dinners’ because they
said it could be harmful to
wildlife and the environment.
This claim is now being
analysed in more depth to
ascertain whether the new
tourist attraction is feasible.
Up to 15
houses

critical condition.
Local Police arrested the
attacker on the seafront
after the incident when pedestrians gave chase and
pinned him down.
Juan Guillermo’s parents, who are keeping a
bedside vigil, say M.Z.C.
had threatened to kill him,
his ex-girlfriend and their
child if the family did not
throw Sorina out after she
moved in with them to hid
from her violent former
partner.

A WAVE of burglaries that
hit the Gandia area earlier
this month have led homeowners fearing for their
safety.
Some 15 houses and villas were raided whilst their
owners were asleep in the
last two weeks of July and
the first week in August.
National Police have recently revealed that on
Sunday, August 5, they were
called out by the owners of
a villa on the outskirts of
the town who had caught
two burglars in the act.
The detainees, a 31-yearold woman and a man of
22, are thought to have been
behind the other 14 night
robberies.
A patrol car rushed to
the scene and officers gave
chase on foot when the offenders attempted to flee
the property, and succeeded
in arresting them.
Police say the woman
stood on guard whilst the
man relieved the properties
of their valuables.
They say the burglars took
advantage of windows and
patio doors left open due to
the heat.

Officers discovered a laboratory

doctored pure cocaine with other
ingredients to increase its weight
and acquire more money from its
sale.
These ingredients included ammonia, bleach, methadone and other, similar chemical products.
Using a drug-detector, police
found cocaine in various parts of
the house, including in the hooverbag.
Guardia Civil officers also arrested a 25-year-old man in Sueca
last week, when he was caught redhanded with 120 grams of hashish,
believed to be for resale.
The two charities say they will
be able to help 20,000 people to

EXCURSIONS: Travel by boat or catamaran to the Fuerte de Navidad or journey back to the Middle Ages with the Dance of the Crypt
By Daniel Vidal
HOLIDAYMAKERS in
Cartagena will have all
they need at their fingertips and a wide range of
exciting excursions to
choose from thanks to
efforts on the part of the
local tourist authority,
Puerto de Culturas.
This August, they can
take a trip to the recentlyrestored Cripta de la Muralla Púnica and witness
the exciting Dance of the
Crypt, where the frescos,
the ‘dance of the skeletons’,
and the music transport
the visitor back to the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
An excursion by boat to
the Fuerte de Navidad is
not only open at Christmas
– the 19th-century building
displays artillery and defence systems from the period, scenes from daily life
and the town’s strong links
with the Mediterranean.
The boat trip to El Fuerte
de Navidad also gives the
tourist a fantastic view of
the defence port on the way.
Only a few places remain
on these and other trips.

RESIDENTS will no longer

now
those without an internet
connection will be able to
ask questions and carry

When our society
stops creating
T
HE OTHER day I
discovered one of
my own thoughts
printed in a newspaper. It would have
been much worse to
have found a list of my
sins instead.
But I wasn’t personally
credited with this thought
– it had been used as the
title of an interview with
a biologist and Valencia
University professor, Juli
Peretó: “Knowing too much
impedes innovation.”
One would suppose, therefore, that this was one of
the lines that stood out
the most in said interview,
which is why they chose it
for the title.
What they call ideas, or
thoughts, are like partridges in the hunting season
– they fly in full view of
everyone, but they disappear as soon as anyone
aims or tries to shoot at
them. According to sociologists, scientific inventions
are discovered by numerous people at the same time
and on more occasions than
we realise. That is why they
also invented the register of
patents and authors’ rights.
Every period in history
has its own mental prototype, meaning that all
would-be inventors were
working in similar conditions at the same time and
the first one to the post will
be the one who takes the podium. Also, before you start
you need to travel light, no
briefcases or covered wagons, because if you just rely
on extensive knowledge you
will never reach first base
before the rest – that is, you
will never be involved in the
innovation of anything.
I don’t know whether
Professor Peretó will have
observed this personally,
given that he is a ‘science
person’ – I’m an ‘arts person’ and have put Peretó’s
comment to the test in my
sector. The most learned
amongst them are those
who know the most quotes
off by heart and know the
most about their field of
expertise, but later it turns
out they are the least creative and innovative people
and are filled with horror
when faced with any idea
that is not already firmly
established.
When I discover these
types of characters who
use knowledge like a set of
jewellery or some other decoration, I renounce universities. That is when I understand better than ever that
knowledge is a hindrance
and puts the brakes on social springs, since it seems
that the slightest attempt to
stray from the fixed ideas of
the university are treated
with the maximum contempt.
f those who occupy posts
in universities – following, without doubt, an
obsolete system that guarantees them jobs for life
– never let the fresh air of
invention pass between
them, who will? Those who
work for a privately-run
company for pure financial
gain? Those who ignore any
type of ground-breaking
thought?
“You have to put forward
a point of ingenuity, of daring, to be able to progress,”
Juli Peretó also said in his
interview. He puts this forward himself in his declarations, because he gives
the impression – as often
commented on, and by
many – that, rather than being a temple of invention,
universities are a qualification-factory and a means for
some to earn a good salary.
When society does not
create, it loses the rhythm
of time, it stagnates in the
past and the rot sets in as it
forgets the enjoyable sensation of exercising vital creativity – and what doesn’t
go up must come down.
We don’t realise it, but
history is always moving
in one direction or another,
even if we fail to notice it
– just as we never notice the
hands of the clock ticking
by.

I have been pleasantly surprised how readily the ban
on smoking in Spain has
been accepted.
Here too, few people smoke
in prohibited areas although
the get out clause allowing
bars under 100 square metres to allow smoking has
made this law easier to swallow.
In other areas where laws
directly challenge people’s
traditions and sense of identity there is often a strong rejection of the rules amongst
all age groups.
However I suspect that this
is less to do with an innate
anarchism in the Spanish
character than the consequence of lack of enforcement of the law.
This was made very clear
to me this week when in my
official capacity of Deputy
Mayor I had to enforce the
regulations from the Valencian Government concerning public safety during the
festival of the bulls in the
village square. The Town
Hall had to ensure that no
one under the age of sixteen
or physically incapacitated
entered the compound and
that no cruel or dangerous
behaviour was inflicted on
the bulls.
The clear instructions
were given to the municipal
police women, attending
councillor and the organisers of the fiesta.
What followed was an almost constant battle with
the local youths, egged on
by the crowd, to be allowed
to jump in the ring with the
bulls.
The explanation that the
rules were there to keep
them safe and that the Town
Hall was responsible if they
were gored fell on deaf ears.
For the spectators it was
unheard of to stop a brave
fifteen year old facing the
bull; they had always done
it, why should we try to stop
them now?
his tussle between rules,
responsibility for safety
and traditional behaviour is played out daily.
Outside many local schools
parents pick up their chil-
T
dren on ‘motos’ without helmets, often in front of the
local police whilst underage
teenagers ride motorbikes
with the blessing of their
parents.
Children are surprised to
be asked to put on a seat belt
in my car and would never
expect a car to stop to allow
them to cross the road.
The Government attempts
to improve road safety or to
reduce injury in the notoriously dangerous street bull
events by introducing new
laws to protect the vulnerable.
The unfortunate reaction
of many is to criticise such
legislation as it controls
activities long considered
normal.
The authorities, whether
they be schools, police, local
councillors or parents will
find it a continual struggle
to uphold the rules in a society where adults teach the
young that laws are only to
be respected if you agree
with them.

A
ing....
T the weekend,
we participated
in a ritual orgy,
that got me think-
By orgy, I mean a group
of around 500 people, of
all ages, nationalities and
tastes, in the very public
plaza, jostling and shrieking in total abandon.
It was the annual Chocolatina – like a mini version
of the Tomatina, only involving indecent amounts
of hot melted dark chocolate.
Every child in the village was invited, however,
there was surreptitious
adult gorging too. Trays
of sugar buns began passing overhead at about 18.00
hrs, and the orderly queue
showed signs of fraying as
the crowd thickened.
By 18.30 the noise in the
plaza was unbearable, as
hundreds of spoons clattered in hundreds of cups,
like an anticipatory fanfare.
Eager smiling faces were
replaced by ones of desperation as the huge vats
of swilling chocolate appeared, and the crowd
surged inhumanely forward like a many-legged
beast.
Small
children
were
passed overhead, as families tried to steal a march
on their neighbours, and
get more of their clan to
the front.
Eventually the first lucky
Wonka winners appeared
– struggling free of the
seething mass to run towards seats clutching the
prized and brimming cup,
teeth clenched around the
accompanying bun.
One girl stumbled, pouring bubbling brown goo
over her arm and down her
chest. Her wails of pain
resulted in an unceremonious dunking in the fountain, which probably prevented third-degree burns.
This stuff was HOT.
I pushed forward anxiously, trying to tug my daughter’s arm and alert her to
the danger. “It’s like lava
– careful, don’t panic, there
is enough for everyone!”
ot one person heeded,
as the crowd opened to
let a wheelchair user
through, only to splash
shut in waves as more chocolate lovers took advantage
to push to the front.
Eventually, I spotted my
youngest daughter, bun
underarm, elbows moving
commando-style as she escaped the masses.
Ensconced on a stone
wall, she began tearing
the bun into sugary pieces,
and dipping them in the
chocolate, at which point
her face changed to one of
divine reverence as each
morsel went down.
She was in seventh heaven.
For journalistic purposes, I forced myself to sample some of the concoction,
and at a guess I would say
it was at least 70 per cent
cocoa – and it was being

N
THE ORGY OF CHOCOLATE: Some say it’s better than sex
given away freely to all.
Apparently, in a controlled experiment comparing 20 different people, researchers found that dark
chocolate was a significant
factor in lowering blood
pressure, while white chocolate was not.
The
key
ingredient
thought to cause this phenomenon is flavonoids.
Dark chocolate can help in
prevention of cancer due to
a high level of flavonoids /
antioxidants – a higher level than wine, berries, and
green tea.
Dark chocolate is a valid
source of iron, magnesium,
phosphorus, potassium; it
helps to generate seratonin in the brain, creating a
healthy, feel good sensation,
and it does not cause acne,
as it has less milk content
than other chocolates. This
stuff is dynamite.
There are festivals around
the world dedicated to chocolate consumption, and
since Montezuma allegedly
drank 50 cups a day, and
taxed people in cocoa beans,
we have been trying to justify our obsession with it.
It’s clear to me after participating in this display of
orgiastic gluttony, that the
cocoa bean tax should be
revived.
We should be paid in
Crunchies or Snickers bars,
with a quantity of cocoa
beans going straight into
a high interest account, to
pay for our kids university
fees.
Forget alcohol and drugs;
whoever heard of a chocoholic abusing his kids, or
driving erratically! In fact,
chocolate actually stimulates concentration and the
smell of it aids relaxation.
The revolution starts
here.
hold your peace
S
INCE the death
of my mother-inlaw, I have been
spending the last
two weeks of August on
an orange farm located
halfway between Valencia and Sagunto where
my son’s father grew up
which is, without doubt,
an idyllic refuge that my
son’s grandfather is reluctant to give up.
We come here to look after the boy’s grandfather,
but also so that my son can
learn to swim and ride a bicycle.
The truth is that it is a
very cool place and very
tranquil, except on windy
days, and sometimes at
night as well.
Everything would be perfect if it were not for the
blessed noise pollution. Let
me explain.
The Masía San Rafael, as
the farm is called, is a perfect example of what has
happened to many Spanish
families with properties in
the country.
The first blow to the masía
came in the 1980s when the
government decided to
build a ring road - the V30 which passes within a kilometre of the orange farm.
This means, for example,
that at eight o’clock in the
morning, as well as the
sound of the hoopoe and
myriad other birds that nest
among the palm trees and
the impressive Jacaranda
trees in the nearby pine
wood, the continual hum
of cars heading towards Sagunto, Castellón, Barcelona
or Heavens knows where,
can now also be heard in
the background.
My husband complains
that not one single acoustic
barrier has been installed
along this freeway and always compares the situation on English main roads.
Two of his sisters live in
England so he often travels
to see them and repeatedly
brings up this example.
I have tried to remember
whether or not he is exagerating, and I must say
that, from somewhere at
the back of my mind, I have
managed to dredge up the
memory of the car journey
from London to Oxford by
car, and do recall a road
with acoustic barriers.
You will be able to confirm whether my husband
is guilty of idealising England or whether it is, in fact,
more usual for this type of
protective equipment to be
used.
But the disaster does not
end there. What happened
a couple of years ago was
much worse. I shall explain.
You will already be aware
that there is a renewed
trend in this country for
weddings to be ostentatious
and extravagant. The truth
is that this fashion never really disappeared, but nowadays even the most progressive are getting married in
style.
Personally, I think it is a
stupid waste of money and
effort to stage a huge wedding for a marriage that nobody ever knows how long
it might last.
And while I am on the
subject, it seems to me to be
the most unromantic thing
in the world to parade past
rows and rows of friends
and relatives all dressed in
white like some huge merengue about to be eaten.
Anyway, let’s assume that
people are happy that way,
and more and more are
organising major events
to celebrate their wedding
day.
As organising large-scale
weddings is not a bad business to be in, there has
been a proliferation in the
number of venues offering
to stage this kind of party.
As bad luck would have it,
two entrepeneurs bought
up the two masías adjacent
to the one where my husband’s family has always
spent its summer holidays,
and converted them into
wedding reception venues.
This means that whenever a pair of young lovers
decides to celebrate their
nuptials next door, we cannot get to sleep until four or
five o’clock in the morning
because of the horrendous
music that sounds like it is
being played much louder
than the legal decibel limit.
have started thinking
about what we can do and
have found a website that
may be useful if you ever
find yourselves in a similar
position to ours.
The address is www.ruidos.org and you will find
abundant documentation,
legislation, examples of
case like mine (and yours
too perhaps) and even contact details for lawyers offering free advice and quotations.
My sister-in-law, who is a
lawyer, says that we cannot
do a thing unless we want to
spend a fortune.
She is almost certainly
right, but I cannot help wondering why the rights of
these men to make money
should be considered more
important than our right to
sleep peacefully?
For the time being we
have bought ourselves some
ear plugs, and fortunately
there are fewer weddings
at the end of August than
the rest of the year because
nobody wants to mess with
their friends’ summer holiday plans.
My advice: travel more
and get married less as
travelling is better for your
marriage.

129 Pine Tree Trail and your pension fund
YOU may well think from
the above title that three
weeks in the Florida sunshine (it was not quite
warm enough on the
Costa Blanca) has addled
my brain.
However, follow the story
through and you’ll understand better why global
stock markets (in which
pension funds invest) have
suffered significant falls
recently and an unusual
degree of volatility.
On arrival in Pine Tree
Trail, the first thing I
noticed was that the house
next door to the one we were
renting appeared to have
been abandoned.
Next I noticed that in this
road of rather nice modern
four-bedroom, three-bathroom houses with private
pools (and about 30 minutes
away from the Disney theme
parks) about 40 per cent had
‘for sale’ signs up.
I am, however, going to
focus on number 129 Pine
Tree Trail (the address is
real except for the type of
tree so as to protect the
innocent) because a couple
of weekends ago we saw
a handwritten sign at the
entrance to Pine Tree Trail.
It said something along the
lines of ‘open house – for
sale to highest bidder, must
sell within seven days as
bank about to foreclose’.
The following Thursday
a removal van turned up
outside number 129. I’ve
occasionally wondered to
this day whether the bank
took possession or whether
an unusually quick sale was
achieved.
How is this relevant to
your pension fund?
Well, the story may well go
something along these lines.
A few years ago certain
banks (in fact, a lot of them)
were willing to grant mortgages to virtually anybody.
Those mortgages granted
to those with a poor credit
record were known as ‘sub
prime’ mortgages. Initial
interest rates were as low
as one per cent per annum
– but of course, very soon
became much higher.
In the then-hot American
housing market, financial
institutions thought they
could take a punt lending
to these folks, and of course
make a lot of money both
from upfront fees and from
the higher interest rates the
sub-prime folks pay.
So, I would bet my bottom
dollar (or euro) that the people who until the Thursday
before last owned 129 Pine
Tree Trail were in this
category. They bought the
house and managed to pay
the loan instalments. Or, at
least until the interest rate
recently hit 10 per cent.
What they did not appreciate was that their mortgage,
along with thousands of oth-
ers, was being packaged up
into some form of security
that other people bought on
the basis of the high yields
they could enjoy.
It’s this sub-prime borrowing that has caused the
recent stock market gyrations – and the value of
your pension fund as a consequence. It’s not so much
that the sub-prime borrowers are defaulting on their
loans (though that’s part of
it). It’s three other things
that have spread the pain
globally.
One, investors worldwide
ended up owning those
sub-prime mortgages. Two,
some aggressive investors
borrowed heavily to buy
these sub-prime mortgages. Three, when these first
two balloons burst, people
started to get very nervous, and the nervousness
spread across all sorts of
kinds of investment. Let’s
have a look at each of these.
How people ended
up with these subprime loans
In the States, these subprime mortgages would get
bundled up and sold off to
investors as a CDO (a collateralised debt obligation).
It worked like this. The
CDO would hold, say, $100
million of sub-prime mortgages with the borrowers
paying (let’s say) 10 per cent.
So there’s $10 million a year
of interest payments coming in from the borrowers.
The CDO would offer
investors three flavours of
investment. It would offer
$50 million of relatively
secure investment that paid
eight per cent; holders of
this safer flavour got paid
first, so they got the first $4
million of the borrowers’
payments. The CDO would
offer a middle-quality flavour – let’s say $40 million
that paid 10 per cent.
The holders of this stuff
got paid next, so they got
the next $4 million. That
left $2 million of borrowers’
payments still in the CDO,
which got paid to the most
junior people, namely the
investors holding the bottom-quality $10 million.
If everything works out,
then the bottom quality
investors earn 20 per cent.
These three flavours of reparcelled sub-prime loans
went all over the world
because, chances were, one
or other of the flavours
appealed to someone.
The middle and low quality bits of these CDOs were
already reasonably risky. If,
for example, 20 per cent of
the sub-prime borrowers
were to stop making their
mortgage payments (not at
all impossible, given their
poor credit standing) then
only $8 million of interest
payments comes into the
CDO. That’s only enough to
pay out the top two tiers of
investor: there’s nothing at
all left to pay the junior bottom tier. Their investment
is now worthless.
Despite these risks, however, some investors and
fund managers took on
another level of risk again:
leverage. They thought
CDOs were worthwhile, so
they borrowed to buy some.
Leverage increases returns
when things go well, but
it amplifies losses when
things go pear-shaped.
And then things did,
indeed, go pear-shaped. The
housing market weakened
in the States. More people
fell behind on payments or
lost their home equity as
house prices fell. First, the

leveraged exposures to subprime mortgages imploded,
because the leverage magnified their losses.
To repay their borrowings,
they were forced to sell their
CDOs onto an already weak
market: prices fell more.
The unleveraged bottom
quality CDO tiers started
falling over, and gradually
the losses started extending
up into the middle-quality
flavours. And, all along the
way, worried investors trying to get out before worse
befell them caused prices
to keep falling, in an everdecreasing spiral.
Investors’ nervousness
then started spreading. One
consequence, for example,
was that private equity
groups, which had previously easily been able to
raise large pots of money,
found that they couldn’t
persuade investors to take
such large punts any more.
That led to lower share prices, because some shares had
been priced on fancy valuations on the expectation
of bids from private equity
consortia.
The biggest
investment
implication
Nobody really knows what
the next turn in the subprime melodrama might
bring. It’s possible that
people have over-reacted by
dumping these CDO investments at any price. It’s
encouraging that the world’s
major central banks have
stepped in to stabilise things
somewhat. Equally, though,
there might even be more
volatility down the track.
Whatever happens, it
shows once again the vital
importance for investors of
all risk profiles of diversification.
When things like the past
month come along, as they
always do, it’s vital to have
a portfolio that is broadly
spread across different asset
classes, different fund managers, and different styles
of investing.
Nothing’s ever foolproof,
but diversification remains
a great tool, anywhere, anytime.
And I can’t help wondering
where the people who used
to own 129 Pine Tree Trail
will be sleeping tonight.

GOOD news for investors,
but hardship could be on the
cards for mortage-holders
as interest rates creep
closer to a record high.
According
to
market
intelligence gathered by
research firm Servimedia,
the Euribor – which acts
as the base for mortgage
interest rates in most EU
member states, including
Spain – shot to 4.656 per
cent last Friday.
This is just short of its
historic high between May
and December 2000, when
the rate fluctuated between
4.849 and 5.248 per cent.
The latter figure was
reached in August 2000 and
remained above 5.1 per cent
until November of that year,
the highest rates seen since
the Euribor was created in
January 1999. The lowestever was June 2003’s 2.014
per cent.
Experts say this month’s
increase
is
the
23rd
consecutive rise and the
current Euribor rate has
only ever been exceeded
eight times.

SEVILLA coach Juande
Ramos has said he
received a “dizzying”
offer to take charge at
Tottenham Hotspur but
never considered accepting the approach from
the English club.
“They made an excellent, dizzying offer, but I’m
under contract to Sevilla
and my decision is to fulfil
it,” Ramos told a news conference this week.
“There was not the slightest possibility that I would
accept it because I’m under
contract. It did not interest
me or the club.
“I wasn’t in a meeting with
anyone, what happened was
that I met with a person
and that person went on
to meet other people who
were surely Tottenham,”
said Ramos, who led Sevilla
to UEFA Cup victory last
season.
Tottenham
yesterday
issued a statement denying
they have offered the position of manager to anyone
whilst Martin Jol has been
in the job.
Ramos has been linked
I FEEL DIZZY: Juande Ramos, above, is staying put as is Martin Jol, below

Premier League club ever

Jol no longer enjoyed the

Speculation went into
overdrive when the Sevilla

Deportivo published photographs of an alleged meeting between Ramos and
Tottenham club secretary
John Alexander at a hotel
in the Andalucían city.
Ramos has guided Sevilla
to five trophies in the last

but now for the Stars ‘n’
Stripes of another footballing nation – across the
Atlantic.
Beckham has insisted that
he can cope with the jet
lag from the trans-Atlantic
flights to play for England.
The
32-year-old
Los
Angeles Galaxy midfielder
played all 90 minutes of
England’s 2-1 friendly defeat
at the hands of Germany at
Wembley.
He had jetted into London
from New York on Monday.
The former Manchester
United and Real Madrid
star insisted that he had
not been affected in the
slightest by the flight.
He said: “I’ve slept really
well since I’ve been here,
I’ve slept nine hours every
night since I’ve been here.
“My body clock has slotted back into the way of life
here in England, so far it
has not affected me, in the
future who knows, I can’t
say it’s not going to.
“But at the moment it’s
not, and I’ll go on playing
for my country as long as
I’m wanted.”
Beckham played his first
full 90 minutes for Los
BECKHAM:
Played for
90 minutes
with Galaxy
for the first
time
Angeles Galaxy in their 5-4
reversal against New York
Red Bulls on astroturf at
Giants Stadium.
His injured ankle flared
up again but it was not a
reason to worry.
“My ankle took a pounding. I’m not used to this surface but it wasn’t bad,” said
the 32-year-old midfielder.
Beckham played a role in
three of the Galaxy’s goals
but a brace from former
Aston Villa striker Juan
Pablo Ángel helped the Red
Bulls to victory.
Afterwards, Beckham said
he was surprised to have
lasted the whole game.
FORMER Spain and Real
Madrid coach José Antonio
Camacho, above, took over
as Benfica manager on
Tuesday.
He replaced Fernando
Santos, who was fired on
Monday after only two competitive games this season.
It is Camacho’s second
spell as Benfica coach. He
joined the club midway
through the 2002-03 season
and left in 2004, leading the
Eagles to the runner-up
spot in both seasons.
Santos
was
halfway
through a two-year contract
but the Lisboa club’s jaded
performances in recent
games brought sharp criticism from fans.
The Eagles were held to a
1-1 draw at Leixoes in their
first Portuguese league last
weekend. They edged FC
Copenhagen 2-1 at home in
a Champions League thirdround qualifier and play the
return leg on Wednesday.
“I’m very happy to return
to Benfica,” Camacho said,
but added that “I can’t
change things overnight.”
Benfica sold its captain
and crowd favourite Simao
Sabrosa to Atlético de
Madrid in the off-season,
while Portugal midfielder
Manuel Fernandes is on the
verge of moving to Everton.
The club has signed
Paraguayan striker Óscar
Cardozo and American
teenage star Freddy Adu.
Benfica, who finished
third in the league last season, has only won the title
once in the last 13 years. It
hasn’t held on to a coach
for two consecutive seasons
since Sven-Göran Eriksson
in 1992. Camacho has also
coached Rayo Vallecano,
Espanyol and Sevilla.

TORRY suffered what
could be best described as
an unlucky defeat at the

Alcoyano, who were mainly
ineffectual in the game but
counted where it mattered
in scoring three goals in as
many attempts,
The host’s produced a
much improved attacking performance with the
midfield and forward line
gelling superbly and created enough chances to
have won the match, but
the post and near misses
spoilt a wonderful evenings

Torry went ahead in the 6th

In the second half it was

be at the course for 8.30am.
Guests welcome subject to
certificates.
Going gets rough
AUGUST is always a slow
month with members on
holiday or taking a break
due to the heat, so 37 players was not a bad turnout at
Hacienda last Monday.
There was a Stableford
competition in our usual
three categories plus our
nearest the pins on the par
threes and a twos competition which was voluntary
for one euro. The course
was in superb condition again and Billy Sim
(Director of Golf) was even
on hand to welcome us. Our
first tee time was 10am and
already it was very warm
so the majority of players
had a buggy and took plenty of water as it’s a long
way round Hacienda, but
all players seemed to play
better in the sun.
In Cat 1 the top score came
from Alan Masters (who
incidentally doesn’t like the
course) with 37 points playing off 4, right behind him
was Bob Marksman with 36
pts. Third place went to Ian
Earey with 30 pts.
Cat. 2 was a bit closer with
the top 5 scoring 34 pts and
over. The handicap secretary had to count back on
the first four players to get
the results. In 1st place with
38 pts was David Lundy, 2nd
on 38 pts was John Sinclair;
3rd place went to Sean
Matthews with 36 pts on
countback from Alan Ross.
Cat. 3 players didn’t fare
so well with our winner
Paul Fernández scoring 33
pts, 2nd Brian Goodbourn
on 31 pts on count back
from Steve Millgate in 3rd.
The day was a great success for John Sinclair who
had been receiving tuition
from Teo, resident teaching
professional at the Escuela
de Golf. John managed two
nearest the pins, on the 5th
and 8th holes and was presented with a prize donated by Billy Sim and also
was the sole player with a
two so collected the whole
purse of 35€. With his 2nd
place in cat. 2 it made a
very rewarding day. Billy
Sim also presented a prize
to Lyn Watts for her nearest-the-pin shot on the 5th.
The other NTP prizes went
to Roy Herbert on the 12th
and Paul Matthews on the
15th.
The next game for San
Javier is August 29 at the
newly opened El Valle Golf
Resort.
THE ESCUELA de Golf
2nd Junior Masters Golf
Tournament is due to be
held again at the end of
September at the La Sella
Golf Resort.
Many thanks go to the
Tour nament
sponsor
Darryl Smith Tennis without whom the Escuela de
Golf would not be able to
host such a prestigious
event.
The young golfers at the
Golf School have amassed
points from competitions
played during 2007 and the
points will determine who
is eligible to take part in the
Junior Masters and only
the top 28 students will be
eligible.
The first round is played
over nine holes and is medal
play. At the end of the first
round a cut is made and
only the top 16 go through
to the final round on the
Sunday which is an 18 hole
medal round with the winner being crowned Junior
Master 2008.
Good luck to Alex OakRhind (age 15) who will be
defending her hard fought
title of 2007 and will have
to fend off her rivals, which
will include Luke Curtis
(age 13) and George Pay (age
14) who took second and
third place in last year’s
event. Alex’s handicap has
been reduced from 13 to
seven over the past twelve
months and she is well on
her way to her target of
a scratch handicap by the
time she is 18. Alex plans
to become a Professional
Tour Player and has all the
potential of a truly great
player. Luke Curtis’s handicap has been reduced from
21 to 12 over the past year
and he is hard on the heels
of Alex as he also wishes to
become a tour player and
follow in the footsteps of
his cousin Oliver Fisher
who already plays on the
European Tour.
Good luck to all the competitors who play in the
Junior Masters and we look
forward to publishing the
results at the end of the
tournament.

Morer the merrier
Stadium at

home for
Jávea team
HOT PERFORMANCE: Dominated by the red and whites
UD Oliva
CD Jávea

IT was described by many as
one of the most perfect performances by CD Jávea for a
long time.
For much of the time the rojiblancos dominated this game
against a side that had been playing Third Division football last
season. Despite cautious words
that next season is merely one in
which to compromise – the travelling army left the ramshackle
Morer Stadium warmed with
enthusiasm for the coming campaign.
It was from the left flank that
Jávea opened the scoring. Ribes
floated a superb free-kick into the
box and there was a short skirmish before the ball dropped to
the feet of striker Juanito who
smashed it confidentially past the
keeper and into the back of the
net to send the sizeable travelling
army into celebration.
The goal lifted the rojiblancos
another notch and wave after
wave of attack had the hosts running around without a clue on
how to stop the assault.
Minutes later Juanito almost
doubled the advantage when he
swept the ball beyond the reach of
the advancing goalkeeper but his
effort hit the base of the left-hand
post and bounced back out into
the area to be cleared in a hurry
by the defence.
Oliva began to creep back into
the game with their small No.7
causing great problems down the
right-hand side.
A throw-on on the far side almost
produced an equaliser when the
throw was launched high into the
box and keeper Ortolá was on top
form to tip over a powerful header
from ex-Jávea player Salva Costa.
However Jávea hauled themselves up and battled back control
of midfield to score once again.
Skipper José Luís and Javi combined beautifully in the middle
of the park, stroking the ball in a
series of 1-2’s before Javi slid the
ball into the path of Juanito and
the young striker smashed the
ball past the keeper from 20 yards
to make it 2-0 at half-time.
Coach Kenny Brown made inevitable changes for the second-half
and the game took on a different
tone with Oliva clawing their way
back into the competition and it
was no surprise that they pulled
a goal back after some very slack
defending from the rojiblancos
allowed the hosts to convert a
great cross from the right-hand
side at the near post.
The rojiblancos were unflustered
and contained Oliva´s attacks
before extending the lead late in
the game when Javi smashed the
ball into the roof of the net to
make it 3-1, the final score.
It had been a great work-out
for the team and it was difficult
for enthusiasm to remain under
wraps, as the performance ranked
as one of the best for some time.
Long may it remain when the real
thing starts in two weeks.

FORMULA One car
racing
champion
Fernando Alonso is
considering playing
soccer for a club in
Prangins, near Nyon,
to stay in shape.
Alonso is reported to
have showed up last
week for a practice of
Prangins FC, a team
in the Swiss third
division.
The
26-year-old
Spanish race driver
moved with his wife
into a semi-detached
villa at Mont-sur-Rolle
in the Lake Geneva
region in January.
Alonso, set to compete in the Turkey
Grand Prix this weekend, may be following in the footsteps
of former F1 racing
champion
Michael
Schumacher, who also
plays soccer locally.
“His goal is to be able
to play simply, first of
all to stay in shape,
and to play a sport at
the heart of a team,”
a friend of Alonso’s
said.
For the moment it’s
not known whether
he has finally decided to play with the
Prangins club.
He first discreetly
visited the club’s manicured grounds near
Lake Geneva after
getting an introduction in June from a
Geneva friend, former
Servette soccer club
goalie Eric Pédat.
New star out
MANCHESTER City
striker Valeri Bojinov
will be out for at least
five months after suffering a knee ligament
injury.
The 21-year-old made
his first start for City
in the Manchester
derby on Sunday but
had to be replaced
after just six minutes.
A City statement
said Bojinov sustained
damage to the lateral
and anterior cruciate
ligaments of his left
knee.
Bojinov signed a fouryear contract with
City on 3 August after
leaving Fiorentina for
a reported £6m.
He had made two
substitute
appearances for Sven-Goran
Erikkson’s side before
he was picked to start
against United.
100mph CRASH,
BANG, WALLOP
Young race ace Zollo in lucky escape after Oulton pile-up
THE COSTA teenager who
could be the next Lewis
Hamilton had lucky brush
with death in a 100mph
crash at Oulton Park ovber
the weekend.
British racing driver William
Zollo, 16, hit the skids at the
Cheshire circuit.
The track was damp and greasy
following oil spillages in earlier
races.
William, driving a single-seater
Reynard Formula Ford, had a poor
practice session and qualified only
12th of 20 starters.
He made a brilliant get-away and
was up to 6th after the first corner.
Then, on the straight at 100 mph
or more he had to swerve to avoid
another competitor in trouble.
He clipped the verge and spun
onto wet grass before returning to
the track facing the wrong direction.
A following racer could not avoid
William and struck his car head on
causing many thousands of pounds
of damage to both machines.
The race was immediately red
flagged to a stop.
Rescue teams were quickly on
the scene and were initially fearful
of injuries to William’s neck and
ankle which was trapped between
the brake and clutch pedals.
He was taken first to the circuit
medical centre and then to a local
hospital which cleared him of injuries.
A bruised William, who lives in
Benedoleig, said, “It was just a racing accident, my first involving
another competitor and no one was
to blame.
“I was most impressed by the marshals and medics of the British
Racing and Sports Car Club who
attended.”
“I will be racing again at
Silverstone on Sunday and next
Thursday and hope to improve my
position in the Midlands and South
Championship.”
Henman over the Hill
TIM Henman will retire from tennis after Great Britain’s Davis Cup
tie with Croatia at Wimbledon next
month.
The 32-year-old former world
number four made the announcement at a news conference in New
York.
It brings to an end a 14-year career
that included six Grand Slam semifinals, one Masters Series title, and
an Olympic silver medal in doubles.
Henman, left, who had Henman
Hill named afterf him at Wimbledon,
will play his final Grand Slam event
at next week’s US Open, where he
will open against Dmitry Tursunov.
He will then try to help Great
Britain beat Croatia in a vital Davis
Cup encounter on Wimbledon’s
Number One Court on 21-23
September.
“From a professional point of view,
it’s something I’ve been thinking
about for some time,” said Henman.
And the former British number
one admitted that ongoing back
problems and the forthcoming birth
of his third child had hastened his
decision.
“It’s made my life a little bit harder, a little bit less enjoyable,” he said
of the back problems.
“With our third child on the way,
there’s an even bigger incentive to
be at home. It certainly gets harder
and harder to be away from your
family.”
He added: “It’s not necessarily the
end of things for me. It’s a new
beginning and I’d like to feel there’s
going to be a lot of new opportunities out there for me and lots of new
things to explore.
“I’m looking forward to stepping
away from things. If it’s next year
or the year after, I’ll look at what’s
out there. I’m sure that will involve
tennis.
“It’s been such a good part of my
life.”
Henman also admitted that he was
not tempted by the chance of a final
swansong at Wimbledon next year.
