The Seaside Gazette provides news for inland areas of the province of Granada, as well as for the Costa Tropical, so here are the figures for La Alpujarra.
A fugative from the French police was arrested on a hippy commune in Cáñar (Beneficio de Cáñar), which is on a track between Órgiva and Cañar.
A huge catastrophe was narrowly avoided by the prompt action of the Infoca, fire fighters in Cañar, in the Alpujarra on the 2nd. As is the case in far too many forest or mountain brush fires, it appears that the fire was deliberately started.
Anybody that had a pet dog for ten years or more knows what a blow it is to lose him, Well, imagine how 88-year-old Ramón from Cáñar in the Alpujarra felt when he lost his Mule after 22 years.
Around 20 hikers from Almuñécar enjoyed a walk in the Alpujarra, co-ordinated by the municipal sports board guides, Enrique Garín & Chico Novo.
Tablones, as well as Cáñar, now has new education centres, thanks to funds from the Education Board of the Junta de Andalucía… bless them.
