Alleged bribery in Lesedi ranks An alleged bribery scandal, possibly involving a councillor and some officials of Lesedi Local Municipality in the granting of a security tender, has raised angry voices in Heidelberg security circles. An amount of plus minus R240 000 was allegedly involved as a bribe to favour a specific company who tendered with others for the contract. Mr. Banzi Majola, acting Municipal Manager of Lesedi last week reacted by saying that the council has not yet received any formal complaints involving bribery from the aggrieved parties. “We are waiting in anticipation for that submission, and we hope it will be coupled with substantial evidence to prove its authenticity. Otherwise I don’t see how rumours will assist this municipality to get to the bottom of this case. The case in itself is criminal in nature and it needs to be treated as such; therefore, as soon as we receive all

the evidence, we will refer it to the criminal justice.” The Municipality did however receive a written complaint which had been issued too late. An aggrieved party is legally entitled to give written notice of his or her complaint within fourteen days after the decision has been communicated. The municipality then has to react to the dispute within sixty days. “The municipality only received submissions one month and seven days after the decision had been formally communicated. The objection can therefore not be further assessed,” Majola said. The successful company in the midst of the row allegedly opened its doors in Heidelberg quite recently. The matter came to light when the councillor allegedly refused to share the money received of R240 000 with one or more of his “partners”.

The suspicion exists that information regarding the other tenders was leaked to put the eventually successful company in a favourable position. Majola says to give out classified information including the prices to the tenders with the intention to put them in a favourable position, is fraudulent exercise and a serious offence.” It cannot be tolerated. We only award a tender to a person who scored the highest procurement points.” The matter has been discussed for some months at Lesedi council meetings.

Skenking van Nigel Ferryvale Spar

Johann Olivier van West Ridingstraat 28, Nigel is op 17 September verlede jaar ernstig in ‘n veldwedren vir motorfietse beseer. Hy moet voortgesette behandeling ontvang en het verlede week, drie dae na sy ontslag uit die hospitaal, ‘n tjek van R25 000 van Spar Ferryvale ontvang. Hier is Johan saam met Betty Kramer (links) en Natasha Fabricius van Ferryvale Spar afgeneem.


The DA, by mouth of Adv. Gerrit Coetzee, inter alia, raised its concern and requested that the matter be investigated. Majola says Coetzee’s question will be dealt with at the next council meeting. Some of the unsuccessful tenderers also approached Majola to discuss matters with him. As far as could be ascertained, one of the unsuccessful companies is considering obtaining an interdict from court, prohibiting Lesedi to proceed using the services of the “successful” tendering company.

Sunrise with Jesus From the desk of Rev Ray Goddess

Most Christians find Easter a time of sadness as we experience and relive the time of punishment and pain that Jesus went through for each and every one of us. The pain that He endured as a man who was Rev Goddess, Heidelberg innocent of the accusaMethodist Church tions thrown at Him. The pain and death that He endured so that we may have the choice of being a saved people. But then we as Christians also look forward to the glorious Sunday when we celebrate the fact that Jesus has risen. In that celebration we are reminded that Jesus has overcome and is victorious over Satan and we can claim that same victory in our lives today. In that celebration we can be assured that Jesus is indeed the Son of God and that the prophesies made so long ago were fulfilled on that very special Sunday morning. WE read in the Gospels that it was early in the morning when Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to the tomb. We also remember their surprise and pain when they realized that Jesus’ body had been removed. But today we know that they had no need to fear or be worried, Jesus was alive and He is still alive today and we experience His presence in a special way in our day to day living. As we remember that early morning when Mary and Mary found the empty tomb we are invited to come and share a special time at dawn on Easter Sunday at the cross. The service starts at 06h00 and we celebrate in song and Word thinking of the glory of Easter and what it means to us all. My message to all readers for this Easter is to think of each dawn, each morning when you wake up and get up out of bed. Think of the blessings that we have in life (and that they are all by the grace of God). Think of the joy that as we rise in the morning Jesus is already there, waiting to help us through the day and guide us onto a righteous path as we strive to follow in His footsteps. 6 Luukse kamers en-suite Ontbyt inni bed - DSTV Those who would like to join us on our Easter Internet -Lugversorging journey this year, here is our program: Yskassies - Elektroniese kluise Tuesday 3 April at 19h00: C o m m u n i o n - Swembad - Braai fasiliteit Service.

Allegations of poor service at the licensing department of Lesedi Local Municipality have been met by an admission on the side of Sedibeng District Municipality stating that there are certain problems which are being attended to. They also apologised to the public. However, handling the Lesedi office is an intricate operation as Sedibeng, the Gauteng Provincial Department of Roads and Transport and Lesedi are involved, says Dan Manoeli, Acting Director for External Communications at the Sedibeng District Municipality. Rekord raised the matter of poor service with Sedibeng after some clients had to wait hours to settle their problems. Another one even had to sit there for the whole day. Staff members were eating while they were supposed to help the public. There are no designated counters to help with different types of queries. The intercom service is bad and one can scarcely hear when one’s name is being called out. Manoeli says the procedures are often tedious and unpleasant for many citizens. “The function of licensing is a function of the Gauteng Provincial Department of Roads and Transport and the service is offered to the public of Heidelberg on an agency basis by the Sedibeng District Municipality. There are therefore two spheres of government responsible for the service, one the primary function (Province) and the other the agency (Sedibeng District).” When one member is absent, it creates a strain on the system and the services will take longer. When the licensing centre is very busy, staff is taking short lunch (about 15-20 minutes) so that they can quickly come back to continue

serving people. In such instances, you will find one or two staff members quickly crabbing a snack in between service provision. The intercom service is out of order and has been reported to the Maintenance Agent for attention. “Again our sincere apology in this regard,” Several systems are being looked at to improve the quality and speed of service. These include: Automated online retrieval of an application form using the applicant’s ID number. The form is printed with all relevant information pre-entered for quick and accurate processing, the availability of application forms online in an editable word format so that these can be downloaded in advance and pre-completed before arriving at the licensing centre, a numbered queuing system that enforces a ‘First-Come-First Served” system. Due to the continuing growth in the need for licensing services, the management of the licensing centre is looking into expanding the service points, although the facilities (office space) at the Lesedi Municipality is very limited and is restricting such expansion. Members of the public that are dissatisfied with the services should feel confident and well protected to lodge complaints. The responsible manager at Heidelberg Licensing office is the Acting Centre Manager, Mr Mojalefa Mokhachane, who can be reached on 083-883-6471 or on a landline at 016-340-4442. Should matters remain unresolved at this level members of the public are free to contact the Executive Director responsible for this service, Mr. Sorrious Manele on 082-444-1990 or 082-908-6154.

Ratanda brand in orgie van geweld


Panado Tablets 24s Spartan or Blister pack

teen die ANC het, dalk nou saam in een bed is want op 11 Maart het Malema gesê hy hoop Mbeki maak ‘n terugkeer aangesien hy “ons van intellektuele rykdom ontsê.” Die twee was baie vriendelik met mekaar hoewel Malema in 2008 deel gehad het aan die onttroning van Mbeki. Die geweld in Ratanda het maande lank rondom hoë elektrisiteitstariewe gebroei voordat dit op 17 Maart tot ‘n flitspunt gekom het. Dit het begin toe stakers op die winkels van vreemdelinge toegesak, hulle gestroop en vernietig het. In die daar opvolgende dae het woedende betogers hulle frustrasies op die polisie uitgestort en jag gemaak op alles wat aan die staat, Lesedi en sy ampsdraers behoort. Die strate is met klippe en brandende buitebande versper en die polisie was voortdurend onder die aanval terwyl hulle orde probeer skep het. ‘n Gesteelde vragmotor van ‘n besigheid in Rensburg is o.a. aan die brand gesteek. Selfs die polisiestasie is op ‘n tydstip aangeval. Van die betogers het polisievoertuie met Molotof Cocktails (bottels vol petrol met ‘n brandende lint) aangeval. Een het sy afstand onderskat en wou die bom baie, baie ver van agter sy rug gooi. Ongelukkig vir hom het hy in die poging sy hemp aan die brand gesteek. Hy het laat spaander, geval, gerol en weer verder gehardloop want ‘n Njala het in volle vaart op hom afgejaag.

In ‘n orgie van geweld en sinnelose vernietiging is Ratanda buite Heidelberg binne enkele dae in ‘n hel van puin omgeskep toe woedende geweldenaars na skatting meer as R300 miljoen Rand se skade aangerig het. Munisipale geboue, klinieke, huise van stadsraadslede – insluitende dié van die burgemeester - winkels en voertuie is aan die brand gesteek, verwoes of beskadig. Denkende inwoners van Ratanda en Heidelberg was in sak en as oor jare se infrastruktuur wat tot niet is. Dis die grootste geweld wat Lesedi nog getref het. Stakers het die kragdrade na die Ratanda polisiestasie Woensdagnag afgeknip. Aanvanklik was gevrees dat Eskom se substasies ook in die slag gebly het. Vrese het bestaan dat die geweld na Heidelberg sou oorspoel waar die opgesweepte massa glo op winkels van buitelanders en munisipale eiendom wou toeslaan. Die polisie het alles in die stryd gewerp om hulle van die dorp af weg te hou. Laerskool A. G. Visser was as ‘n voorsorgmaatreël op Donderdag gesluit. Die Minister van Polisie, Nathi Mtethwa en Lt-Genl. Nhlanhla Mkwanazi het Ratanda Donderdag besoek. Die minister het gewaarsku dat die polisie tot nou toe minimum geweld gebruik het. Indien die geweld sou voortduur, sal hulle oorgaan tot die gebruik van rubber koeëls. Hy het ook aangekondig dat die inwoners van Ratanda met Lesedi sal vergader en dat dit op provinsiale vlak verder gevoer sal word. “Dis ook nie die weermag se taak om by wet en orde betrokke te raak nie,” het hy gesê. Dit wou lyk asof die Minister daarin geslaag het om die geweld tydelik te stop. Die uitbarsting kom op ‘n tydstip dat oud President Thabo Mbeki op 17 Maart in Nairobi ‘n beroep op die jeug van Afrika gedoen het om in opstand te kom teen die ouer garde regeerders en hul regmatige plek in te neem omdat die jeug teen 2045 hul onderskeie lande sal moet regeer.

Bail proceedings and the presumption of innocence Merit awards by JP Okes Is there still a presumption of innocence? Well, according to our constitution at least, there is one. Section 35 (3) of our Constitution provides as follows: “Every accused person has a right to a fair trial, which includes the right to be presumed innocent. When it comes to bail applications, however, accused persons can be forgiven for believing that the presumption of innocence is often forgotten by our law enforceBernina Springs, Nigelweg 111, Selection Park, Springs - 011 363 0612

ment officials. I can understand that uninformed members of the public battle to distinguish between bail proceedings and trial proceedings. The public will often jump to the conclusion that a person arrested on a serious charge of rape, murder or armed robbery must be guilty. Why else would he have been arrested? Law enforcement officials, including magistrates, prosecutors and policemen, however, should know better. The main purpose of bail proceedings is to secure the suspect’s attendance at court and to prevent interference with the investigation of the matter. Of course the interests of the community should also be taken into account. By fixing bail with appropriate conditions the courts can ensure a balance between the interests of the community and those of the accused. The fact that bail has been refused does not mean that an accused is guilty. Likewise the fact that bail has been granted does not mean that the accused is innocent. The presumption of innocence entails that an accused person is innocent until proven and found guilty by a competent court. Whenever possible therefore, courts should attempt to release suspects on bail rather than run the risk of having innocent persons unnecessarily detained. In the month of February alone, and in three separate cases, I had to appeal to the High Court against various magistrates’ refusal to grant bail to clients. The purpose of this article is not to criticize specific magistrates. I have indicated in a previous article that magistrates have a particularly difficult task and, for the most part, do the best they can with the resources at their disposal. In any event magistrates have no personal interest in the matters they decide upon. For this reason the names of the magistrates are not revealed here. Clients have a right to privacy

Before your stick your neck out.... talk to us

and seldom want their names splashed in the media. No good purpose can be served thereby. In respect of sexual offences, the Criminal Procedure Act prohibits the publication of any information relating to the offence before the accused has pleased. It is therefore irresponsible to publish the names of suspects in sexual offence cases until such time as the trial has started. For these reasons my clients’ names are not revealed here. I would however like to give the reader a short summary of each case, by way of example of how difficult it can be to get bail, when the presumption of innocence is not given sufficient weight and recognition. Mr A, a well known police man, was charged with theft of cattle. He was found in possession of the cattle when he tried to sell the cattle at an auction. Mr A had no previous convictions or outstanding cases. He had a fixed address and was employed by the SAPS for years. He had various commitments to his family and specifically minor children. The investigating officer took a number of weeks to arrest Mr A after he was found in possession of the cattle. Mr A was arrested at his home in the early hours of the morning by the investigating officer. Stock theft, although a serious crime, is not in the same category as murder, rape and robbery. Mr A indicated that he could pay bail in the amount of R15 000. Imagine his surprise when bail was refused. On appeal, and unfortunately a number of weeks later, he was released on bail of R2 000. You are welcome to address any questions you might have to the Editor. JP Okes is a practicing attorney who has specialized in criminal law for more than twenty years.

Mnr. Douglas Jackson, hoof van die Hoërskool J. W. Luckhoff, is tydelik deur die Departement van Onderwys geskors nadat ‘n bewering van aanranding teen ‘n skoolseun onder die aandag gekom het. Mnr. Bouwer Wiersma, Jackson se regsverteenwoordiger, sê ‘n klag van beweerde lyfstraf is aan die begin van Februarie gemaak. Dit word tans ondersoek, maar daar is nog geen beslissing geneem om te vervolg nie. Jackson is ook nog nie gevra om te pleit nie. Rekord het by die bestuursliggaam en onderwysers vasgestel dat die omstandighede by die betrokke skool nie maklik is nie. Mnr. Jackson is reeds vir die afgelope 35 jaar by die skool betrokke en is die laaste agt jaar die skoolhoof. Hy het ‘n skoon rekord. Die betrokke seun was voor die beweerde voorval in ‘n bakleiery betrokke waarna hy “uitgehaak” het. Hy het nie self die voorval aangemeld nie. Die saak is verder gevoer deur ‘n sosiale werkster. Jackson het na bewering opgetree om die vrede te herstel. Die kinders kom almal uit gebroke huise en is weens omstandighede of oortredings deur hofbevele van die staat daar geplaas.

Art creations with bottle tops! If you thought ordinary plastic bottle tops could not be made into stunning artistic works of art, then you are so wrong. Johan Geldenhuys (59) has been a resident of the Nigel Home for the Aged for two years. He is illiterate and physchologically impaired. Johan never went to school and lived with his father in Springs, until his father died and Johan was unable to care for himself. So he moved to the home in Nigel, where he soon made friends and is very happy. Then Staff Nurse Elsa Spence had an idea that Johan could benefit by being creative. She was right, because Johan soon learned that bottle tops were ideal to make things with. He started with candle holders and serviette rings and then went on to make a door mat. But his latest is a stunning wall hanging made from more than 220 plastic bottle tops of various colours, all threaded together and individualy knotted with cotton. Even Elsa couldn’t believe the results of Johan’s work. Now Johan has been given a large bottle of bright orange plastic bottle tops and can’t wait to start his next project. Elsa says that it would be better if Johan worked with metal bottle tops for his door mats and he is hoping someone will give him some. He shows an interest in reading

Versierings en lemoenkoek ‘n Aanbieding oor die versiering van houthangers met breiwol en kant, is by die jongste VLU vergadering van Rensburg deur Anne Marie du Plessis aangebied. Anne Marie het gewys dat ‘n mens eers 16 rye (90 – 93 steke) brei met vierdraad wol, en dat jy dan die kant aan die agterkant aanbrei. Sy het drie van die hangers aan Rensburg geskenk wat dit later opgeveil het vir fondse. Renbsurg se voorslag skakelbeampte, Hannatjie Venter, is op die konferensie van die Goue Suide Streek die sesde keer as skakelbeampte aangewys. Twee sakevroue van Nigel het van hul skoonheidsprodukte, waaronder velprodukte op uitstalling gehad. Die vergaderings word by Heidelberg Biblioteek se aktiwiteiskamer aangebied.

but Elsa says he gets very tired after a while. The same can’t be said for his work with bottle tops. He works continuously with a project and is full of enthusiasm. Johan also has another hobby which keeps him busy – looking after budgerigars outside his room. Hester Ludik wat met haar Mikrogolf Lemoen Ringkoek 89% behaal het.

Klipstapel bind Suid-Afrikaners ‘n Klipstapel wat by Skuiling buite Heidelberg op Sondag 18 Maart deur blanke en swart Suid-Afrikaners gepak is, is tydens ‘n sonderlinge seremonie aan God opgedra. Lede van Boereverenigings, wit en swart, en verteenwoordigers van alle bevolkingsgroepe het daaraan deel gehad. Die stapel dien as ‘n getuienis dat die grond waarop die klipstapel staan, as ‘n plek van aanbidding gebruik sal word en dat die gemeenskappe sal saamwerk om die boerderybelange van almal in Suid-Afrika te bevorder. Terwyl olyfolie op die klipstapel uitgegiet is, het Elizabeth Jordaan van Geopende Deure in Pretoria, tot die Here gebid om die aarde waarop daar moontlik in die verlede bloed vergiet was, te reinig sodat die grond sal ophou om na bloed te roep. Sy het die verbond wat met die klipstapel gesluit is, aan Hom opgedra. Die seremonie wat deur Agri Gauteng gereël is, is gehou op die aangrensende gedeelte van die plaas Skuiling waar suiwer, skoon

water uit die aarde die afgelope paar maande deur die Coca Cola Maatskappy onder die handelsnaam Valpré, gebottel word. “Laat hier van daan lewende water na die wêreld uitgaan,” het sy gebid. Van die onderskeie boereverenigings, staatsdepartemente en verteenwoordigers van Lesedi en Sedibeng asook individue en die Hoërskool Vereeniging het hul name op stukke rots geverf. Op die grond sal o.a. gebid word dat die kinders van God na vore moet kom om te help dien. In ‘n dramatiese gebeure het die mense die klippe opgedra teen ‘n rant uit waar die klipstapel gepak is. Dawie Spies van die organisasie Manne vir God in Pretoria het ‘n sterk, kragtige boodskap gebring oor ‘n klein Gideonsbende wat ‘n groot oorwinning behaal het. Hanekom het gesê die gemeenskaplike raakpunt vir alle Suid-Afrikaners is die liefde vir Jesus. “Kom ons loop in die lig is Agri Gauteng se leuse. Kom ons lei ons mense deur God se genade,” het hy gevra. Met die

Urgent need for support A “safety clown” teaches the kids The plea for help by the Nigel SPCA has had a disappointing response from the public. Three local women donated two bags of dog food each and Dick Erasmus Motors paid for some bags of dog and cat food to be collected at a local store. On Tuesday last week a woman went to the kennels and donated R500. Laerskool Hannes Visagie recently donated bags of dog food and blankets for the kennels, which were much appreciated. Apart from that the appeal to help the SPCA in the Rekord has been ignored. “We are grateful for the response, although small,” said kennel manager Hazel McLuckie. “But we are still in a desperate position and struggling to survive.” No offers to sponsor a kennel for a year were received and no regular supplies of dog food were offered. So the SPCA is forced to carry on battling but still helping animal welfare and stop suffering wherever possible. Hazel can be contacted on 084 485 7020.

Doing what is right on the road was a feature of the visit of Rassie the “safety clown” to the Pixie Land crèche in Nigel last week. The clown arrived in a police car which impressed the children. By doing all the “wrong” things like not stopping at a stop sign etc., the clown managed to tell the little ones what were the wrong things to do. The youngsters were often clever enough to know that the clown was disobeying rules and shouted their disapproval. Each child was given a chocolate and a book by the clown and then waved goodbye.

The children of Pixie Land Crèche in Nigel listen as the “safety clown” tells them what are wrong things such as playing with pesticides and how they can harm them. Pixie Land kiddies welcome the safety clown who arrived in a police car.

Union Carriage verloor staatmaker


Mnr. Hannes Steenkamp, een van die ou staatmaker van Union Carriage in Nigel, het na bykans 47 jaar se ononderbroke diens in die organisasie afgesterf nadat hy in Benoni ‘n kanker operasie aan sy slukderm gehad het. Sy vrou Judy met wie hy 21 jaar lank getroud was, sê Hannes sou op 17 Desember vanjaar 47 jaar diens by Union Carriage gehad het. Hy sou dan met pensioen gegaan het en hulle twee sou op ‘n landswye toer gegaan het. “Hy het baie uitgesien na sy aftrede.” Hannes was ook besonder trots daarop dat hy voor sy laaste siekte, nie een keer ‘n siektesertifikaat by die werk ingedien het nie. “As ketelmaker was hy ‘n ware voorbeeld vir sy kollegas en ander werkers. Hy is 12 Maart in Intensiewe Sorg ná sy operasie oorlede. Sy vrou se afskeidsboodskap: “Gogga, baie dankie vir jou liefde vir my. Wag vir my by die Oos Poort wanneer ons mekaar weer op daardie groot een dag sien. Liefde, Vroutjie.”

Sestig jaar Mike’s Kitchen bekroonde restaurant in bedryf Clarendon Woonwaens van Geduld, Springs vier vanjaar ‘n sprankelende sestig jaar in die bedryf – net soos sy eienaar Gert Scheepers wat met ‘n vonkel in die oog en ‘n huppel in sy stap uitsien na die volgende sestig jaar. Clarendon het in 1945 begin as Clarendon Motors begin wat Morris en Wolsely motors verkoop het. In 1952 het die maatskappy egter ’n bestelling van 30 vragmotors van Excelsior Bakkery ontvang wat in broodwaens omskep moes word. Die destydse eienaar, Koos Smuts het die hulp van Jurgens Woonwaens ingeroep. En so het ‘n verhouding ontstaan wat nou nog voortduur. Clarendon het ‘n agent vir Jurgens Woonwaens geword en weggespring met ‘n nederige mikpunt van twee karavane per jaar. Verkope het egter deur die dak gegaan en die maatskappy het sy agentskap vir motors opgesê ten gunste van Clarendon Woonwaens. Nadat Koos in 1987 afgetree het, het Clarendon ‘n verkoper van Sprites, Wilks en mobiele huise geword. Harry Herholdt en Stoney Steenkamp was die direkteure. Takke is later op Kinross en Trichardt geopen. Bestellings vir doelvaste woonwaens het o.a. van die Universiteit van Kaapstad vir mobiele klinieke gekom. Explorer mobiele huise is vir die doel omskep, o.a. ook vir Pretoria Technikon en die munisipaliteite van Brakpan, Springs, Middelburg, Delmas, Soweto en Hartbeespoort. In 1997 het Mpumalanga ‘n bestelling vir dertig mobiele klinieke geplaas. In dieselfde jaar het Clarendon Woonwaens en Caravan Corner van Nigel saamgesmelt. Clarendon Woonwaens het jaar na jaar roem ingeoes met nywerheidstoekennings en is in 2006 vir sy harde, getroue en betroubare diens aangewys as Jurgens CI Handelaar van die Jaar. Gert Scheepers, die huidige eienaar, het in 1975 aangesluit as verkoopsman en het in 1989 ‘n aandeelhouer geword. Sy vennoot, Harry Herholdt is in 1996 oorlede en Gert as alleen eienaar gelaat. Hy is met ‘n lang diens sertifikaat deur Jurgens CI beloon ter erkenning van sy uitstaande en voortgesette bydrae tot die woonwa- en buitelewe bedryf in Suid-Afrika. Vandag is Clarendon een van die markleiers . Die handelaar het ‘n werkswinkel wat A gegradeer is. Personeel wat in die fabriek opgelei is kan aandag aan enige karavaan verwante probleme gee en ook vinnig en effektief met versekeringseise deel. Alle kampuitrusting is op die perseel beskikbaar. Dit sluit in tente, ligte, yskaste, klere, slaapsakke, braaiers, stoele, tafels en karavaan onderdele. “En wat ons nie het nie, sal ons beslis vir jou vind,” sê Gert. Clarendon Karavane is ‘n geakkrediteerde handelaar by al die groot finansiële instellings. Met sy leuse van “Eerlikheid en ‘n billike diens vir almal” het Gert na sestig jaar ‘n toekomsvisie wat ver strek. “Hier kom die volgende sestig jaar!” (Met erkenning aan Johan Schronen vir sy artikel waaruit hierdie inligting ontleen is.) Clarendon kan gekontak word by 011-811-9900/1, 073-788-4358 en info@clarendon Die perseel is geleë in Geduldstraat 49, Geduld Uitbreiding, Springs.

Mike‘s Kitchen, met ‘n hele reeks bekronings in die sak, is een van Springs se gewildste restaurante wat besoekers van heinde en verre, ook van Nigel en Heidelberg, trek. Met tot vier vleissoorte op Sondag en die beroemde aanbieding van twaalf verskillende slaaisoorte, is Mike’s Kitchen ook reg geprys om almal se sakke te pas. Lara Oelofse, mede-eienaar, sê Mike’s Kitchen het verlede jaar ‘n hele reeks bekronings verower en dat hulle hard werk om dit vanjaar te oortref. “Ons bied kwaliteit cuisine aan ons gaste en beskou hulle as ons belangrikste bate,” sê sy. Broer Jacques du Preez is mede-eienaar en bedryf die eetplek saam met haar. Haar man Hennie, is die eienaar van Mike’s Kitchen in Germiston. Sondag is ‘n dag waarna baie gaste van Mike’s Kitchen uitsien, want dan bied Lara en Jacques drie voorgeregte aan, gevolg deur ‘n ete van vier vleissoorte, met aartappels, uie ringe, rys en vier groentes, asook ‘n keuse van veertien slaaisoorte. Nagereg bestaan uit ‘n gebakte broodpoeding of ‘n malvapoeding met vla en ‘n keuse van jellies afgerond met roomys. En dit alles teen slegs R95,00 per volwassene. Kinders o.12 betaal slegs R35. Woensdag is dit pensionaris dag teen R40 per kop tussen 12:00 en 17:00 . Saans is daar vir alle gaste ‘n spesiale voorsnit (carvery) teen R59 per gas. Op 8 Mei is daar ‘n Matriekafskeid Expo ten gunste van fondsinsameling vir die Hoërskool Hugenote. Dis ‘n geleentheid wat huidige en voornemende matrikulante nie mag misloop nie! Alles van rokke, juwele, manspakke tot limousines sal op uitstalling wees. Kaartjies is teen R150 per kop beskikbaar by Lara. Daar sal ‘n driegang maaltyd en ‘n modevertoning aangebied word. Mike’s Kitchen spesialiseer ook in kinderpartytjies met roomyskoeke en al. Kinders kom vier gereeld hulle verjaarsdag partytjies daar. Die mini sjefs partytjie is baie gewild. Die kinders word aangetrek soos mini sjefs en neem deel om hulle eie burger te maak. Hulle word ook vir n toer deur die kombuis en restaurant gevat waar hulle vertel word van al die verskillende afdelings, produkte en ook higiëne. Die restaurant bied enige soort partytjie aan.

Heidelberg se eie Bonsai klub ‘n Nuwe Bonsai Klub, Heidelberg Bonsai Kai (klub) is in die dorp gestig met sy wortels diep in moeder aarde geplant. Met 27 jaar se kennis agter hom is die nuwe voorsitter, Frikkie Möller uitmuntend geskik om die groep van meer as veertig Bonsai entoesiaste van die nuwe klub tot groot hoogtepunte te lei. Heidelberg Bonsai Kai is die dorp se eerste eie plaaslike geregistreerde Bonsai klub. Die nuwe lede van Heidelberg Bonsai Kai het ná die amptelike verkiesing van die nuwe komitee, ywerig ingespring om hulle eerste boompies te knip nadat Möller hulle in die kuns begin inlei het. Die ou baard onder die Bonsai boompies wat op uitstalling was, was ‘n grootblaar struik (pivet) wat 46 jaar gelede sy eerste wankelende wortels as ‘n Bonsai uitgesprei het. Op sy hake, maar tien jaar jonger, was ‘n kleinblaar struik wat 37 jaar gelede geplant is. Die klub het nou 13 kwekers en verskeie beginners wat almal die begeerte het om Heidelberg Bonsai Kai ‘n trotse naam in Bonsai geledere te gee. Möller sê die geskiedenis van Bonsai strek terug tot in Egipte voor Christus se geboorte toe Egiptenare kruie in potte begin plant het. Mense wat belangstel om die Bonsai kuns aan te leer, kan Möller bel by 082-426-2286.

Kerslig brand by MOTHS ‘n Kers word in pikdonkerte aangesteek ter herinnering aan gevalle kamerade wat sedert die eerste wêreldoorlog gesterf het. Só word elke vergadering van die oud soldate beweging, die MOTHS in Heidelberg en elders ter wêreld geopen. Aan die einde van die vergadering word die pit weer in duisternis geblus. Verlede week Dinsdag het die Suikerbos rand Shell Hole van die MOTHS (Members of the Order of the Tin Hat) weer hul maand-vergadering in die ou tronk naby die Victoria Sentrum gehou. Terwyl die kers nog by die aanvang van die vergadering brand, lees die Old Bill (Voorsitter) van die Bomskuiling (Shell Hole), Wille Kotzee die herinneringsbelofte aan die gevallenes voor terwyl die oud soldate op aandag staan. Dan word die openingseremonie afgesluit met die sing van “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away...” Hannes Lauschagne, die adjudant van die klub, werk tans in Zambië en neem ‘n gemonteerde foto van die ou tronk saam om daar in Kitwe teen die mure van die MOTH klub te hang. Die klub in Kitwe val onder die beheer van die Suid-Afrikaanse hoofkwartier van die MOTHS in Durban.

Sagie derde in SA Bianca Erasmus van Laerskool Hannes Visagie het die SA Primêre Kampioenskappe in Durban Vrydag aan die brand gespring toe sy derde met 1,33 m in die o.10 afdeling gekom net. Dit was die trots van Sagieland se eerste deelname aan dié prestige byeenkoms. Bianca (10) wat vanjaar die eerste keer as graad vier leerder aan velditems mag begin deelneem het, is die enigste Sagie wat na die SA Kampioenskappe deurgedring het. Bianca en haar trotse ouers sê sy het die kuns van hoogspring by haar broer Brazer aangeleer wat nou ‘n leerder aan Hoër Volkskool is. Sy het hom van vierjarige ouderdom af dopgehou. Dit was die begin van groot hoogtes vir haar want Vrydag het sy kort na 12:00 aangetree vir die grootste kampioenskap wat enige junior atleet in Suid-Afrika beskore is. Bianca sê die lekkerste van hoogspring vir haar is om só deur die lug te vlieg. Haar hoogste sprong tot voor die SA’s was 1,26 m. Sy het derde plek (uit 28 deeelnemers) behaal in die o.10 afdeling van die Gauteng Kampioenskappe in die L.C. de Villiers Stadion, Pretoria. Bianca word afgerig deur Julien Muller, ‘n oud Volkie atleet wat deur Unisa verder studeer en as assistent by die skool werksaam is.”Hy lewe vir sy atleetjies en het ons gevra om haar mooi op te pas,” sê Bianca se ma.

Big cycle race is here again There was a huge response last year to the mountain bike races which started at the Nigel Italian Club. Now it’s nearly time for this year’s event, which will take place on Sunday, April 1, also starting and finishing at the Italian Club. The Suikerbos Mountain Bike Challenge is split into various categories and the main event is the 80km race and will follow last year’s route with some tweeking here and there. It will be a great opening ride for the 2012 season, testing your skills on the technical route to the maximum. There will also be a 35km race for novice riders. There will be a 12km ride for young and old. A R20 entry fee will be charged on the morning of the race and don’t forget – no helmet no ride! The 80km race is open to men and women 29 years of age and under. The veteran class is for men and women 30-49 years. The Masters category is for riders of 50 years and over. There is no winner, no prizes but all finishers will get a medal. There will also be medals only in the 35km event. The cash prizes for the 80km ride will cover all categories. This is a day out for the whole family and there will be a jumping castle and games for the children, lots of food on sale and safe secure parking. There are definitely some serious climbs, excellent downhills, as little tar as possible and much single track as the terrain will allow. A compulsory pre-race briefing will be held at the start of the race. The route will be marked for direction and riders are responsible for their own safety at all major intersections although marshalls are present. For more details including registration contact Noel van der Muller 082 374 6681.

Nigel rugby vier 120 ste verjaarsdag Nigel Rugbyklub vier vanjaar sy 120 ste verjaardag met ‘n toernooi wat selfs die grootste smulpaap na die asem sal laat snak. Al sestien die topspanne wat aan die nuwe Preditor Liga deelneem, sal in aksie wees. Dis die bulspanne waaruit die provinsiale spanne van die Valke, Leeus en Luiperds gekies word. Die Nigel Rugby Feesdag sal waarskynlik in die laaste kwartaal van die jaar gehou word, het Rekord op betroubare gesag verneem. En as die Feesdag enigsins iets gaan weerspieel van wat op Saterdag 17 Maart tydens die jaarlikse Nigel Rugbydag gesien is, wag daar ‘n skouspel wat elke rugbyliefhebber móét bywoon. Die jaarlikse rugbydag op 17 Maart was harde, spannende hardlooprugby en dryfspel uit die boonste rakke. Heidelberg het ook getoon dat hy van-jaar gereed is om sy teenstanders uit die pad te vee. Hulle het die gedugte span van East Rand Eagles wat in ‘n hoër liga ingedeel is, met 24-21 in die grond ingespeel. Nigel se eerste span het in sy wedstryd teen Vereeniging getoon waartoe hy instaat is toe hy sy teenstander uitmekaar getrap en karnuffel het. Nigel se tweedes het gelykop teen Meyertyon gespeel, Nigel o/19 wen met 19-18 teen Vaal Pukke en Nigel o/21 wen teen Gold One (Nigel se derde span) met 20-7. Die eerste span neem vanjaar in die nuwe Preditor Liga deel wat vroeg in April ‘n aanvang neem. Onder hul vyftien opponente sal daar o.a. Vaal Pukke, Vaal Reefs, Klerksdorp, Diggers, Kemptonpark, Oos-Rand Polisie en Eldoraigne wees.

Jonty, van spoed- na rugbyvraat

Jonty Shelton, bekende atleet van Hoërskool Balfour tot einde 2011, het sy atletiekskoene bietjie weggepak en hom by die Bulls Akademie in Pretoria aangesluit, waar hy besig is om in rugby geledere naam te maak as ‘n drieë vraat. Pa Tony en ma Wilma sê vir almal wat wonder wat van Jonty en sy atletiek geword het, sal dit interessant wees om te weet dat die atletiek nou ‘n bietjie agterweë gebly het. Sy liefde vir rugby was net te erg en hy geniet elke oomblik van sy betrokkenheid by die Bulls Akademie terdeë. Jonty het op 10 Maart vir die @lantic 7’s op Loftus gespeel. Hulle het vyf wedstryde op Loftus B gespeel waar hulle drie gewen en twee verloor het. In die eindwedstryd op Loftus het hulle teen die Pumas gewen. Jonty het drie fantastiese drieë gedruk en sy bekende “back flip” op die veld gemaak. Vir die hele dag het hy nie minder nie as agt drieë gedruk en is aan die einde van die wedstryd teen die Pumas as “Man of the Tournament” aangewys. “Dit was vir Jonty ‘n wonderlike geleentheid om ‘n wedstryd op Loftus te kon speel en nog ‘n hoogtepunt was toe hy deur Paul Treu, (Hoofafrigter van die blitsbokke,) geluk gewens is met sy pragtige vertoning,” sê sy ma. “Ons sal gereeld laat weet hoe hy vorder en sê net dankie aan ons Hemelse Vader wat hom so lei. Jonty glo al van skooltyd af dat ‘n mens wondere kan verrig met Genade van Bo,” sê sy ouers.
