News in Brief – Costa de Almeria

AGUADULCE GANG: Targeted top-end bicycles Photo credit: Guardia Civil

Bike thieves THE Guardia Civil detained eight people, some of them underage, accused of stealing 19 top-of-the-range bicycles in Aguadulce.   The arrests culminated an investigation launched last summer into the disappearance of a number of expensive models from apartment garages.  Six bicycles and 107 spare parts have now been recovered.  

Above board A BERJA court shelved an official complaint against Adra’s mayor, Manuel Cortes, which was lodged by the local PSOE party and accused him of corrupt practices linked to a building permit.  Cortes had acted in accordance with his position, the judge ruled, without committing any type of irregularity. 

Not pretty ALMERIA CITY residents criticised the new method used to prune trees lining their streets, introduced to allow them to grow as naturally as possible.  Lopping branches near to buildings while leaving the opposite sides and tops practically untouched “looked ugly,” they complained and made the trees look lopsided.

Shared goals THE mayors of Almeria and Cordoba will promote gastro-tourism via a wide range of shared activities.   The project is included in the collaboration agreement between the cities and the Junta’s Tres Culturas foundation to consolidate the historic legacy uniting Almeria and Cordoba, explained Almeria City’s mayor Ramon Fernandez-Pacheco.

Eat up VICAR’S mayor Antonio Bonilla has been visiting local schools, encouraging healthy and balanced diets while stressing to pupils the benefits of eating more fruit and vegetables. Meanwhile the schools are trying to persuade them to forsake factory-baked sugary snacks at breakfast time in favour of more wholesome options.
