The practice of posting funeral notices on lamp posts has been banned in Argostoi, special notice boards have been erected in certain prominent places. Be interesting to see if the same happens elsewhere on Kef and if adverts for bars, tavernas and ents get plastered across the funeral notices.

Privacy concerns raised as more than one million pupils are fingerprinted in schools
An estimated 31 per cent of schools did not consult parents before using the biometric technology

Figures show that four out of 10 secondary schools now use biometric technology as a means of identifying pupils - with nearly a third failing in their duty to seek parental consent before introducing the system.

From what I can make out, Hellenic Seaplanes have been authorised to run a sea plane service from/to Zakynthos and plan to fly to "neighbouring islands" and Patras by the start of the summer holiday season.

Paliki police arrested a 25 year old Albanian national on New Year's Day after he'd attacked a 30 y-o local with an iron bar following a verbal altercation between the two.
