  1. Alrededor de mil quinientos miembros de la confesión religiosa de los Testigos de Jehová se reunieron en la ciudad de Granada para fortalecer su “fe en el ejemplo de Cristo Jesús, bajo el lema “No se rinda, siga cumpliendo la ley de Cristo, haciendose una aplicación personal, familiar y a nivel de comunidad de la vida y ejemplo de Cristo Jesús”. La reunión supuso una cita de confraternización entre los asistentes. http://www.diariojaen.es/andalucia/mil-quinientos-testigos-de-jehova-celebran-su-fe-en-granada-AB3982103
  2. Ya se han iniciado los trámites para cambiar las pistas deportivas por un centro religioso. / JAVIER MARTÍN El barrio de Aviación de Motril pelea por no perder unas históricas instalaciones a cambio de un centro de Testigos de Jehová LAURA UBAGOMotrilMiércoles, 18 octubre 2017, 00:53 La asociación de vecinos 'Orión', del barrio de Aviación de Motril, ha emprendido una batalla para evitar perder unas históricas pistas deportivas que se convertirán -si los trámites administrativos siguen su cauce- en un centro religioso promovido por Testigos Cristianos de Jehová. Los vecinos han realizado alegaciones, junto con el PP e IU, al estudio de detalle -publicado en el BOP- para llevar a cabo el cambio de suelo que hay que realizar para construir este equipamiento. Los vecinos aseguran que estas pistas deportivas (es un suelo privado) han estado utilizándose de forma ininterrumpida de día y de noche gracias a unas torres de iluminación que instalaron los antiguos propietarios. Las pistas llevan en el barrio más de 30 años y los residentes de la zona se quejan de que los nuevos dueños las han cerrado. Dicen los miembros de 'Orión' que tal eran y son las necesidades de instalaciones deportivas de ese barrio que el Ayuntamiento también contempló para el mismo uso el solar yuxtapuesto. «Las necesidades religiosas que puedan tener los Testigos Cristianos de Jehová solo les afectan a ellos, son una necesidad privada», alegan los vecinos que tampoco están de acuerdo con las formas del procedimiento. «El camino para cambiar el uso del suelo -de deportivo a religioso- debe ser el cambio del PGOU y no tratar de meterlo de coladilla, por la parte trasera de la ley, con nocturnidad y alevosía, con un estudio detalle como se pretende hacer», protestan desde la asociación del barrio de Aviación. Dentro de los argumentos de estos vecinos está que en su gran mayoría, los vecinos de la zona son «cristianos católicos y ateos. Los primeros tienen cubiertas sus necesidades en la vecina iglesia de Las Angustias y los demás no necesitamos ningún tipo de infraestructura religiosa», anotan. «En el caso de que se necesitaran más templos, mezquitas, iglesias o sinagogas, lo lógico es que se modificara el PGOU de Motril para cambiar el uso al solar yermo que existe justo al lado de la parcela de los Testigos de Jehová», expresan resaltando que en su barrio son muy necesarias instalaciones deportivas y que este tipo de actividades religiosas conllevan «una acumulación de personas y vehículos» que la estructura viaria de su barrio «no está preparada para soportar». Los vecinos dicen que se crearían problemas que se acumularían al que ya tienen con un solar privado colindante que se usa como aparcamiento público. En la alegación del PP se argumenta que en este barrio de la zona Norte de Motril existe una importante demanda de instalaciones deportivas y que «las que se pretende destruir» son las únicas en la actualidad. «Consideramos que la puesta en marcha de esta infraestructura (el centro religioso) es lo suficientemente importante como para haber informado y haberlo consensuado con los vecinos. Sin embargo, no se ha dado conocimiento a la asociación de este hecho, algo que creemos fundamental para poder realizar este proyecto», subraya Luisa García Chamorro, portavoz del PP. En esto coincide también Izquierda Unida que resalta que en este barrio hay demanda de instalaciones deportivas y que el cambio de uso del suelo no está consensuado con los vecinos. «Como ya denunciamos, el barrio se encuentra en unas malas condiciones de mantenimiento. El cambio de uso del suelo atraería personas y vehículos que esta zona no podría soportar y se acrecentarían los problemas», alega la portavoz de IU en el Ayuntamiento, Daniela Paqué. http://www.ideal.es/granada/costa/pistas-deportivas-espacio-20171018235845-ntvo.html
  3. Over five thousand Jehovah’s Witnesses, including the communities from Gibraltar and the provinces of Malaga and Cordoba, will meet for their annual regional convention next weekend at the Palacio de Congresos in Granada. It’s a three day programme, which will be presented to over 13 million Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide. Christina Cortes asked overseer, Manolo Gatt, about the message of this convention: “Don’t Give Up”. http://www.gbc.gi/news/jehovas-witnesses-meet-granada
  4. Los testigos de Jehová de Granada tienen desde hace unas semanas un nuevo hogar en la capital. El nuevo salón de esta organización religiosa, recientemente construido, se ubica en la avenida de Juan Pablo II y dará servicio religioso a la población de la zona Norte y Maracena. La edificación de esta nueva instalación se ha producido en unos terrenos próximos al parque de Bomberos que este grupo cristiano adquirió después de sondear distintos espacios con el Ayuntamiento de Granada, según explica Rafael Baena, encargado de la obra. La construcción se ha llevado a cabo gracias a las donaciones de los fieles y provocará el cierre de dos salones más pequeños ubicados en Maracena y en la zona Norte de la capital, que serán reubicados en la nueva instalación. La parcela en la que se ubica esta edificación ha sido adquirida en propiedad por parte de los testigos de Jehová de Granada al Consistorio municipal. Estudio «Antes de ejecutar una construcción de esta envergadura se hace un estudio para no malgastar las donaciones de nuestros compañeros. Estuvimos analizando la zona para saber que podría ser útil, se hizo un sondeo detallado, del transporte público, del privado y luego se decidió llevar a cabo la construcción», expone Baena. Entre los integrantes de esta organización religiosa existe satisfacción por cómo ha quedado la edificación y el emplazamiento en el que se encuentra, con un continuo trasiego de vehículos y una parada del metro a escasos metros de la puerta de entrada. El interior del nuevo salón de la avenida Juan Pablo II se divide en una zona amplia y grande, en la que se realizarán la mayor parte de las reuniones de esta organización religiosa. «Allí haremos las reuniones públicas de libre acceso a las que puede acudir cualquier ciudadano y en las que se expondrá cómo para aplicar los buenos consejos que hay en la Biblia para ser mejores personas», detalla Rafael Baena, que añade que el resto de salones con los que cuenta este edificio se utilizarán para encuentros más reducidos, que serán los menos habituales. La construcción ha sido completada por testigos de Jehová con conocimientos en este campo. «Somos autoconstructores, pero sólo hacemos edificios para nuestro propio uso», recuerda Baena quien detalla que el trabajo se reparte entre «compañeros de la zona o de otros puntos de España o del mundo, que como miembros de nuestra religión ofrecen voluntariamente sus conocimientos. Nadie cobra por esta tarea». http://www.ideal.es/granada/nuevo-hogar-testigos-20170717012710-nt.html
  5. A COLONIAL HOUSE WITH A COURTYARD IN THE CENTER OF GRANADA $1.3 MILLION This six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath house, known as Casa Blanca, is in the heart of Granada, Nicaragua, a small western city founded in the 1520s along the shore of Lake Nicaragua. The rich colonial heritage of the city, one of the oldest in Central America, is reflected in the stately architecture of this and other buildings. Casa Blanca, a colonial house with a white concrete facade and a red-clay tile roof, was built in the 1750s for a wealthy family from Spain, according to Carlos E. Gutierrez, a broker for Nicaragua Sotheby’s International Realty, which is listing the property. The two-story house, with a two-car garage, is on the corner of the pedestrian-only Calle La Calzada, near the Granada Cathedral and Central Park, the bustling city center. “It’s a pretty optimal location,” said Trevor Barran, the managing partner of the Sotheby’s affiliate, which opened for business last spring. The current owners acquired the property about five years ago, Mr. Barran said, and they spent two years renovating and upgrading it, restoring myriad architectural details throughout the 6,000 square feet of living space. Those flourishes include coffered and vaulted ceilings with tongue-and-groove, or machimbre, paneling; wood molding; and encaustic floor tiles handmade locally. The furnishings, most from the Managua manufacturer Simplemente Madera, are included in the sale. Ornate wrought-iron gates enclose the doors to the two main entrances, which open to a large central foyer with a seating area, one of three designated living rooms. The ground floor also contains four guest bedrooms, three of which have en-suite baths, and a small en-suite bedroom suitable for staff off the modern kitchen. All the bedrooms except the staff quarters have air-conditioning, Mr. Barran said. The master suite, with a TV alcove and a spalike bath, encompasses the second floor. It includes a balcony that offers views of the cathedral and overlooks the home’s lush central courtyard. Nearly every room on the first level leads to the courtyard, which is landscaped with tropical foliage like aloe and ginger plants and features an open-air dining area and a 40-foot pool. Granada, with a population of around 120,000, is about 28 miles from Managua, the capital. It is a 55-minute drive to the Managua airport and around three hours to the airport in Liberia, Costa Rica. MARKET OVERVIEW As Nicaragua’s past political turmoil has faded in memory, the country has become a popular tourist spot and a second-home destination, according to real estate agents. The real estate market “really opened up” from 2002 to 2004, when there was “tremendous growth for the country,” said Mr. Gutierrez of Sotheby’s. By 2006, “the market was booming,” he said. After the 2008 global financial crisis, “everything just went into hibernation,” he added. But sales and prices have rebounded in the last four years, agents said. “People feel confident about the country,” said Carlos Gutierrez, a residential developer and an owner of Casa Granada Properties, a real estate agency based in Granada. (He is not related to Mr. Gutierrez of Sotheby’s.) Home sales across Nicaragua are up, on average, 15 percent to 20 percent from a year ago, said Mr. Gutierrez, the developer. In Granada, “the rental market is also really growing,” he added, “because people want to try it out first before buying.” He estimated that rental volume in the city is up about 40 percent over the last five years. Although prices in Nicaragua have been rising — doubling in some beach communities since 2007, according to agents — home values remain far lower than in neighboring countries like Costa Rica. (The price for a three-bedroom, fully renovated home in Granada, for instance, typically starts at around $170,000, according to Mr. Gutierrez, the developer.) “Property values are around 50 percent less than Costa Rica,” Mr. Gutierrez of Sotheby’s said. “Nicaragua reminds me of Costa Rica 30 years ago.” WHO BUYS IN NICARAGUA Buyers from the United States, Canada and Europe have been active in Nicaragua’s housing market, particularly at the higher end, agents said, with most of them looking for second homes or development properties to hold and use. “About 10 years ago people would just buy as an investment, but there are really no speculators anymore,” said Eduardo Cabrales, a lawyer based in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Granada has had an influx of expatriate retirees, agents said, because of the city’s affordable cost of living, along with its colonial charm, walkability and shops, restaurants and other amenities. BUYING BASICS There are no restrictions on foreign ownership, except for properties near the borders “for homeland security reasons,” Mr. Cabrales said. In fact, policies and laws encourage foreign purchases, such as a residency program that offers tax incentives to retirees, he added. Foreigners, though, have fewer mortgage options available, so purchases typically are in cash, he said. It is essential for buyers to hire a good lawyer, preferably one who can provide a reliable translation of the purchase agreement and be present at the closing on behalf of the buyer, Mr. Cabrales said. The lawyer will also need to conduct the necessary due diligence, which includes the key step of reviewing the title deed, or escritura, to ensure there are no liens against the property or ownership issues. WEBSITES Nicaragua tourism: visitnicaragua.us Nicaragua MLS: mls-nica.com/en LANGUAGES AND CURRENCIES Spanish; Nicaraguan Córdoba (1 Córdoba = $0.034) TAXES AND FEES Each transaction typically involves just one real estate agent, who is paid a commission, usually by the seller, of 5 percent to 8 percent of the sales price. There are various other fees involved in a transaction — these are typically paid by the buyer — such as a federal transfer tax of 1 percent to 4 percent of the assessed value of the property after it is registered to the buyer. Other expenses include the annual municipal tax of 1 percent of the assessed value of the property, as well as fees for a lawyer and a notary (although many lawyers are notaries). The lawyer’s fee is typically 1 percent of the purchase price, Mr. Cabrales said. CONTACT Carlos E.
