    28 golfers including 3 guests took part in a reverse Waltz competition with two hidden holes at a much later start time than recently of 13:22 for the first tee time. The weather was kind to us with sunshine and not much wind even though we finished quite late.

    The winners with a score of 85 points were Jacqui, anita G, Jim sh and peter Wa. They beat the 2nd place team by scoring 2 points on the hidden holes compared to the second teams one point. however they would have won anyway on lower handicap.

    last place and chocolates went to

    nina, david C, John n and his guest ian a with a score of 58 points.

    nearest the pin was won by mel with a distance of 2.90m.

    Thanks to lennart for announcing the scores and giving out the prizes this week. it is a shame that no matter which way he tried to do the scoring Jacquis team beat his for first place.

    Two golfers played better than their handicap this week. Well done to peter Wa and ivan who both scored 37 points.

    The Friday golf next week starts at the earlier time of 11:54.

    The Castle of Santa Ana hosts the I International Watercolor Exhibition brings together a total of 44 works

    The exhibition was inaugurated on Friday by the Councillor for Culture, Maria Dolores Ortega and Commissioner of the Exhibition, John Scissors.

    Councillor for Culture, Maria Dolores Ortega, accompanied by other members of the government team of Roquetas de Mar opened last Friday I International Watercolor Exhibition in the Castle of Santa Ana Ortega was accompanied during the tour of this major exhibition A total of 44 works by the curator of the exhibition, the

    by the four watercolorists Almeria participating in this show as Julio Visconti, Dionisio Godoy, Rafael Orchard and John himself Scissors. Of all the artists that are represented attended the opening ribbon artists Agell and Laura Sanz de Barcelona and Carlos Santos Marques of Portugal.

    The curator John Scissors noted that it has been a hard and difficult task to gather in one place at such a diverse number of watercolorists, not only because of their

    nationality and language, but by the idea of bringing together different approaches to watercolor in styles, themes and treatments.

    Scissors wanted to thank the City of Roquetas de Mar and the Department of Culture, as well as the direction of the Castle of Santa Ana for the great reception they gave to this great project and for making this possible, and thanked the participating artists for your response and interest to be present in this I International Watercolor Exhibition. Neither wanted to forget the companies that have supported this project and

    have worked . Once again, art has become the link between people

    from different parts of the world, but with the same language, water and pigment. Now is the time for the public to enjoy every brushstroke, color, shape and texture, as we enjoyed when creating these works, the real reward will be new, said John Scissors.

    The exhibition involved Tape Agell, Kenji Aoe, Daniel Arteta, Mara Jos Barrera, Antonio Brtolo, Celia Bayonne, Orlando Buccino, Joaqun Cachero, Binnur Cavusoglu, Alberto Rafael de Burgos, Catherine De Rick, Jos Antonio Garca Villarrubia, Maria Gloria Giraldo Goalkeeper Dionisio Godoy, Naomi Gonzalez, Carmen Jimenez, Manolo Jimenez, Teresa Jorda Vit, Chari Leiva, Gold Lopez, Francis Martin Marrouch, Beyla Medina.

    By Bill Blevins, Financial correspondent, Blevins Franks

    Jersey is to drop the withholding tax option under the eU savings Tax directive. it will be mandatory for financial institutions to automatically exchange information on their clients bank accounts, effectively bringing the era of banking secrecy to an end in the offshore centre.

    This will bring Jersey in line with guernsey and the isle of man, who have already abolished the withholding tax (or retention tax) option.

    It is proposed that the official start date will be 1st January 2015, though financial institutions will be allowed to start earlier

    if they wish to harmonise operations with those in guernsey and isle of man.

    if you live in spain and have a savings account in Jersey, your bank will pass details about your bank account to the spanish tax authorities. This will be done automatically each year, regardless of whether the spanish authorities have requested information.

    The information exchanged under the savings Tax directive is: your name, address and residency details details of the source of the funds The amount of savings held The period to which it relates.currently, this applies to savings income.

    over the coming years the directive will be extended to include life insurance products, pensions, employment income, directors fees, immoveable property, dividends, capital gains and royalties.

    This will be another tool for the spanish tax authorities to use in their fight against offshore tax evasion. it will help them collect unpaid taxes and ensure that foreign bank accounts are fully taxed in future. They will most likely compare the information received with that provided by you on your tax return, and also on Form 720.

    The tax penalties for non-disclosure are very high and can be devastating under the

    new overseas asset reporting obligation.

    There are effective, fully legitimate tax

    planning arrangements available here in

    Spain which can provide significant tax benefits for your investment income and wealth. you should seek professional advice

    on how best to structure your assets to be as

    tax efficient as possible.

    developments in the offshore world, check

    If you are a soccer fan you will recognise the names of NEYMAR, PEP GUARDIOLA and JOSE MOURINHO. Well, they are all at the Roquetas dog shelter! Not unfortunately the soccer stars themselves, but their namesakes, three dogs that have been named by the male volunteers. NEYMAR, a male terrier, standing about 50 cm high, was

    born in July 2011. He was left at the shelter with a wound on his paw, but this has healed quite well now. He is a nice, easy-going dog that gets along with everyone. He is very attentive and learns quickly. Now NEYMAR is looking for a forever home where he can play soccer with his family.

    Maybe you like the look of the handsome PODENCO ANDALUZ brothers. PEP was named after PEP GUARDIOLA and has a black nose and brown eyes. MOU, who was named after JOSE MOURINHO, has a brown nose and green eyes. These two male PODENCOS were born in December 2011, and left at the shelter when they were six months old. Now they are ready to conquer their place in the world. They are both typical PODENCOS. They are very friendly and playful and would bring much joy and amusement to their family. However, they also need exercise and challenges. They are perfect for people who are looking for one or two playmates and at the same time aware that they need some gentle coaching.

    PODENCOS as a breed are marvellous, spectacular beings. They are active, full of unsurpassed energy and at the same time docile, amusing and always good buddies. They are loving, sporty, friendly with cats and respectful to people.

    Last Monday was a day like many at the shelter, except MARINA, the President of the shelter was taking a well earned short break and MARGARET, who was deputising for MARINA was left quite out of breath. A Belgian couple, who had taken PEANUT on trial, decided that they wanted to adopt her. Ana, the vet provided her with a chip, a passport and papers. She set off happily with her new family. A young Spanish couple adopted CUCA on Saturday and collected her on Monday morning. This was followed shortly by a Spanish family arriving to look for a small puppy to help their daughter

    get over the loss of a much beloved pet. They chose one of FANYS puppies who were only found last week by ERIKA. The puppy still needs to stay another week with her mother before it can leave the shelter with her new family. This was followed very shortly after, by a young couple looking for a puppy for their 10 year old son. They fall in love with PACO and carry him off to their son. A lot of good news so far! Then two Spaniards come back with INES, adopted a few months ago as a guard dog for their large property. Unfortunately, INES is just so good natured that she greets everybody with a friendly wag of the tail. So, INESS good fortune turns to failure and she is back looking for a suitable family again. PRAGA will probably take her place if she passes the test as a guard dog. Things then calmed down a little but at 13:00 the SOCIAL POLICE arrived, and that is never good news. They had brought with them two miserable looking dogs, one adult and the other a puppy. Both dogs are now in quarantine and are being taken care of. Four dogs leave, plus a possible departure, and three dogs arrive. This was just another day at the shelter.

    There are both small and large dogs at the shelter, maybe there is one for you! If you need information on any aspect of the shelter please ask Geoff at [email protected]

    in restaurants that exist near the fishing port that focus on avenida antonio machado can quietly enjoy the traditional dishes of seafood. These establishments exhibit the freshness

    of its fish in windows. enter one of these restaurants is another added advantage, eating alongside the ships in the harbor. after seeing the wide variety of fish to look at the counter we sat at a

    table with an excellent view. in addition to the traditional cuisine of the fish fry, we can choose between rice or gurullos with lobster, seafood paella, wheat noodle casserole with

    monkfish, Fidgua ... after much thought we decided on a gurullos with lobster and an operetta.

    Gurullos with lobster The gurullos are a wheat flour dough shaped like grains of rice that used to be made

    by hand and left to rest. on the other hand it makes a paste of garlic, dried pepper and tomato and a sauce with squid, onion and pepper. when you add the fried fish, water and crushed mussels. when it has boiled put gurullos, lobster, peeled shrimp and mussels. The

    chilli and roasted red pepper are the finishing touch.

    (last performance of the year)

    Tuesday 25th of september at half past five in the morning, marbella para-athlete Javier mrida completed a 15-hour swim across the english channel, becoming the first disabled swimmer from spain to accomplish the feat.

    mrida, whose leg was amputated six years ago, is now the fourteenth spaniard to make the journey that normally covers the 32 kilometres from dover, on englands southern coast, to calais in France. he hit difficulties however and sea currents took him off course, adding an extra 15 kilometres onto the already difficult route.

    his attempt began at 2pm on monday with the waters temperature at 16 degrees centigrade. in compliance with the rules laid down by the channel swimming association mrida swam without a wet suit and was accompanied by a navigation boat that would only provide basic or vital assistance. despite his disability, from the start the official observer was strict with the marbella-born athlete, who lost his right leg from the knee downwards in 2007 from an accident. he had to start from dry land and drag himself into the water until he could swim.

    mrida had completed 35 kilometres when the wind changed. i swam for four hours but made no progress, the swimmer confessed. after another three kilometres the boats crew decided to divert further down the coast to wissant after realising that it would be impossible for mrida to reach calais battling against the strong currents.

    The marbella swimmer eventually completed the journey, again having to drag himself onto dry land. There he was congratulated by the observer, who confirmed his feat and said his official channel swimming certificate would be arriving soon. mrida says his next challenge will be swimming loch ness in scotland.
