Groenfonteinbrug onveilig Magda Maritz

‘n 21-Jarige man is gelukkig om te leef, nadat hy op 3 Junie by die laagwaterbrug op die Groenfonteinpad buite die dorp aangeval en van sy selfoon beroof is. Volgens Sean de Villiers was sy seun Paul die Saterdag omstreeks 17:15 te voet op pad terug plaas toe, toe twee mans uit die veld te voorskyn gekom het. Hulle het sy selfoon geëis en met messe gedreig, waarop ‘n woordewisseling ontstaan het. Sonder waarskuwing het die mans Paul na bewering gestorm en hy het in ‘n struweling met hulle betrokke geraak.

“Toe hulle probeer om Paul die veld in te sleep, het hy hom teëgesit en in die proses by ‘n helling langs Blesbokspruit afgerol,” het Sean aan Rekord gesê. Die val het waarskynlik Paul se lewe gered, want hy kon toe daarin slaag om van sy aanvallers te vlug. Kort daarna het lede van Nigel GPF Paul te hulp gesnel maar ongeag ‘n wye soektog, was daar geen spoor van die twee aanvallers nie. Die aanval by die Groenfonteinbrug is volgens Nigel GPF patrolliehoof Alwyn Van den Heever, geen geïsoleerde voorval

nie. Sedert ‘n ander jongman ook sowat ‘n jaar gelede deur gewapende mans by die brug oorval en geskiet is, het talle soortgelyke aanvalle daar plaasgevind. Een daarvan was ‘n beweerde poging tot motorkaping en dit is insidente soos dié wat die boeregemeenskap en veral Nigel GPF warm onder die kraag maak. Alwyn sê die polisie behoort sterker fokus op misdaadbekamping te plaas deur byvoorbeeld lokvalle by die brug te stel. “Die insidente is periodiek en die aanvallers gebruik meestal dieselfde

modus operandi,” het Alwyn aan Rekord gesê en verduidelik dat hoewel GPF patrolleerders die omgewing gereeld besoek, dit nie altyd genoeg is om aanvalle te keer nie. Hy het inwoners gemaan om onder geen omstandighede by die brug stil te hou of onder die brug by Blesbokspruit vis te vang nie, aangesien die gebied as uiters onveilig verklaar is. Inwoners wat by Nigel GPF wil aansluit, kan Alwyn by 082 654 2141 of Dawie by 083 382 0667 skakel.

Paul de Villiers (inlas) is op 3 Junie by die Groenfonteinbrug buite die dorp deur twee gewapende aanvallers van sy selfoon beroof. Volgens Nigel GPF vind daar gereeld soortgelyke aanvalle plaas en word inwoners gemaan om uiters versigtig by die brug te wees.

Magda Maritz Lesedi Local Municipality (LLM) hosted its Integrated Development Plan (IDP) business breakfast meeting at Heidelberg Aerodrome on May 25. Various business owners, ward committee members and other stakeholders were invited to interact and engage in conversation with the view of assisting investors with proper planning for the next five years, and also help promote the IDP to continue to be a tool for a democratised approach in advancing development and planning for our communities. LLM executive mayor Cllr Lerato Maloka briefly discussed the purpose of the meeting, saying Lesedi is a municipality to invest in, as its holds great potential for the future. “It is important for the municipality to strengthen partnerships to enhance local economic growth,” she added.

Lesedi Local Municipality executive mayor Cllr Lerato Maloka speaking at the Integrated Development Plan business breakfast at Heidelberg Aerodrome, where guests were invited to interact and engage in conversation with the view of assisting investors with proper planning for the next five years.

In his presentation, acting municipal manager Isaac Rampedi highlighted certain aspects in the 2017/2018 proposed budget which among others, include a number of construction and upgrading projects. The event concluded with breakfast being served to guests. “The IDP business meetings form part of our commitment to serve as a responsive,

accountable, effective and eff icient municipality, and to ensure that we regularly meet with residents from the local communities to listen to their views on how best LLM can improve their lives, report back, present new developments and plans, milestones and challenges,” municipal spokesperson Arthur Thokoane said addressing the media afterwards.

Evacuate! From the desk of Rev Ray Goddess Elize and I went down to Buffelsbaai for a holiday (yes ministers also need a break). On the way down we heard about the fires, George area, Knysna, Brenton on Sea….but never Buffelsbaai. We arrived on Wednesday only to find that the highway had been blocked and we were only 800m from the Buffelsbaai turnoff. On asking what the problem was we were told that flames were too close to the road on the other side of the turnoff. We asked if we could go “past” the row of cars so that we could turn in to Buffelsbaai. We were given the go ahead and so we went on our way. When we got to the flats there was a sign to say that the office was closed because of the weather. Assuming that it was because of the possible storms on the way from Cape Town we parked and unpacked the car. After we had unpacked we noticed that there was no power. I went down to the car and I was greeted by our neighbours with some candles and a bottle of water. They told us that the transformers had been burnt in the fire and there was no power. This was already evening and so we took the candles, only to find that we had no matches or lighter. I got in my car and travelled to the entrance of Buffelsbaai where we knew some cars had gathered – we assumed on our way in that they were people “looking at the fire”. I went across to a man standing next to his car and then the realization of what was happening struck me. With tears in his eyes he told me that his house was direct in line with the f ire and that he had received notification that his house was burning. The lady next to him said that when she left her home the store was on fire and she must assume that by now her house was no more – engulfed in flames. I stood there at a loss for words. Everything gone! All the man had grabbed was his laptop and some clothes. His personal documents like his ID, passport, policies etc were all gone. His items of value that they had collected over the years, all the memories…gone. And to top it all, his wife was sitting in Knysna and he was this side – they could

Rev Goddess, Heidelberg Methodist Church not get to each other because the flames were so wild that the road was closed completely. How do you console someone like this? What do you say? What can you offer when all that you have is a case of holiday clothes (which he did not need)? He graciously gave me a box of matches and asked that we pray (awesome), which we did and continued to do and still pray today for all those affected by the disaster. We had a bath and finally went to sleep. A disturbed sleep with the noise of the wind and the site of the f ires burning on the Knysna Heads. At 05h15 we were awakened with a banging on our door. It was the emergency services. Please evacuate the fire is on its way. But here is what I need to say. There are still many decent people out there. I asked him if he would help me hitch the trailer – which he did. He then asked me if I knew where other people were staying and I told him where I knew people were staying. When I asked how much time we had he told me 10 to 15 minutes if the wind turns the wrong way. We packed (very fast) and left the flat. On our way out we went past many flames that, if the wind continued blowing in the direction it was, would end up driving the fire towards the Buffelsbaai town. From consoling a man whose house had been burned down to suddenly becoming a victim and being involved in an evacuation was a life changing experience. All of a sudden life became precious, items became “nice to have” but it was LIFE that was the issue. My three

Alrapark-skool in sak en as Magda Maritz

Alrapark Secondary School verkeer in ernstige nood, na nóg ‘n inbraak en diefstal gedurende die skoolvakansie in Maart. Leerders het op 2 Junie met eksamen begin, maar daar is kwalik genoeg papier om vraestelle op te druk of eksamenboeke vir die leerders. Twee plaaslike maatskappye het intussen papier aan die skool geskenk, sodat van die vraestelle intussen gedruk kon word, maar met nog sowat drie weke oor voor die Gauteng skole sluit, is daar ‘n ernstige tekort aan papier. Volgens Mnr Marius Daniels (hoof: Mnr Daniels van Alrapark Secondary School wys hoe boewe die plafon in die hoof se kantoor gebreek het, om toegang tot die kantoor en die kluis te verkry.

sekuriteit) is die skool nie net byna leeggedra nie, maar ook erg gevandaliseer. “Skade aan die geboue waar ingebreek is beloop reeds etlike duisende rande. Ons grootste bekommernis op dié stadium is dat die skool blootgestel is want daar is nie geld om die plafonne, diefwering en palisade te vervang of herstel nie,” het hy aan Rekord gesê. Tydens die inbraak het boewe ondermeer

kontant, verskeie elektriese toebehore, grassnyers, papier en boeke buitgemaak. Daar is ook by die skool se snoepwinkel ingebreek, waar al die elektriese toebehore gesteel is. Die skool het ‘n ernstige beroep op die publiek gedoen om die skool by te staan met donasies in die vorm van A4 papier en eksamenboeke. Vir navrae oor donasies, skakel Mnr Daniels by 082 783 8599.

In some cases, a burglary is carefully planned. The burglar will, for example, phone to find out if someone is home, or go to the door with the excuse that he/she is looking for work, or for another address. Sometimes a burglar will watch the house and its occupants for a couple of days before striking. Impulsive burglaries are very common. The burglar is usually attracted by obvious poor security, like broken windows or garden equipment lying around. He sees the opportunity and takes it. Most burglaries take place in broad daylight, while the residents are at work, or during the holidays when no one is at home. Most burglaries can be prevented by applying a few basis safety measures in good time. REMEMBER: A BURGLAR ALWAYS SELECTS THE EASIEST TARGET. Next: How vulnerable is your home?

Two babies die in house fire

Magda Maritz

Two babies (aged six and 12 months respectively) died in a house fire that was allegedly caused by a heater inside a flat at the Dunnottar military base. A third child survived the fire and was later treated for smoke inhalation at a nearby hospital. The incident occurred around 16:00 on June 4 when the mother of the six month old baby and the father of the

12 month old boy, left them sleeping inside the bedroom with a heater on. According to Capt Johannes Ramphora from SAPS Springs, it is believed that the bed-linen caught fire from the burning heater and subsequently spread to the rest of the room. “The father of the 12 month baby tried the rescue them, but the room was already engulfed in flames and could

not fight his way through. He sustained some severe burn wounds in the process and was later rushed to hospital, where he was also treated for smoke inhalation” Capt Ramphora told Rekord. Fire f ighters from Nigel Fire Brigade responded to the emergency, but upon arrival they had to put out the blaze before

reaching the children. Although their bodies were severely burnt, it is believed the babies died from smoke inhalation. At the time of going to print, Rekord could not confirm whether it was an electrical or gas heater that caused the fire. A police inquest into the exact cause of the fire and deaths of the children has been opened.

Nigel Biblioteek steeds ‘n lees-hemel Opgradering van Visagiepark watertoring by Laerskool Hannes Visagie, wat by voltooiing later vanjaar drinkwater aan inwoners van Visagiepark, Alrapark en MacKenzieville sal voorsien. Die nuwe toring sal vorige probleme met waterdruk en -toevoer in Visagiepark, uitskakel.

Magda Maritz In sy strewe na beter kliëntediens, sorg Ekurhuleni Metropolitaanse Munisipaliteit (EMM) deesdae dat publieke areas en geboue soos Nigel Stadsaal en Nigel Biblioteek opgeknap en onderhou word. Dit volg ook na volgehoue druk op die munisipaliteit deur plaaslike DA raadslid Wollaston Labuschagne om toe te sien dat geboue met historiese waarde soos die stadsaal behoue bly en dat inwoners die volle gebruik van fasiliteite soos die biblioteek kan geniet. Nigel Biblioteek is onlangs binne en buite opgeknap en die algemene sekuriteit is ook verskerp. Boekwurms en ander gebruikers kan oudergewoonte ‘n kenmerklike biblioteekstilte verwag wanneer hulle die fasiliteit wat oor alles van gratis internet (Wi-Fi) tot gemaklike sitplekke beskik, besoek. Plaaslike bibliotekaris Ignatius Lechelele, het tydens Rekord se onlangse besoek gesê dat hy trots is op die fasiliteit en dat hy elke boek met die grootste liefde en sorg hanteer. Te midde ‘n era waar mense verknog geraak het aan tegnologie soos selfone, rekenaars en tablette, het Ignatius inwoners genooi om by die biblioteek aan te sluit waar ‘n mens nog vir ‘n wyle met ‘n boek in die hand, van die werklikheid kan ontsnap. Die rakke kreun behoorlik onder die gewig van ‘n verskeidenheid boeke en hoewel die verkryging van nuwe titels soms ‘n uitdaging mag wees, is daar genoeg leesstof om oud en jonk besig te hou. BELANGRIKE KENNISGEWING: Nigel Biblioteek sal vanaf 12 tot 26 Junie weens opknappingswerk gesluit wees. Inwoners kan intussen van Alrapark Biblioteek se dienste gebruik maak.

Development to commence in Dipaleseng Eskom Development Foundation and Grootvlei Power Station approved more than R10 million in projects, donations and sponsorships made to local schools and community organisation’s around Dipaleseng area with 6 000 beneficiaries. This, according to a press release issued by Dipaleseng Municipality on June 6. From 2014 to date, Eskom has donated furniture, computers and off ice equipment, electrical appliances, stationery, security systems, park homes, science equipment and chemicals, trophies and upgraded sports f ields, classrooms and ablution facilities to numerous schools and crèches within the Balfour jurisdiction. The station continues to roll out the bursary scheme for qualifying local Grade 12 learners to further their studies at any of the country’s universities. They are then offered internship opportunities at the completion of their studies. A fire truck which was refurbishment at a total cost of R750 000 was donated to Dipaleseng Municipality to assist the fire and rescue section.

Water leaks repairs and the repairs of floating valves in the reservoir, donation of road signs as well as the refurbishment of the sewerage plant in Grootvlei are some of the interventions undertaken by Eskom to assist the municipality in its service delivery imperative. Other upcoming projects that they will be implementing include the construction of the Skills Development and Localisation Centre in Balfour. The municipality has already approved the allocation of land for both of these community projects. The aim of the Skills Development and Localization is to achieve maximum and sustainable local development impact through leveraging Eskom’s procurement spend in a manner that allows flexibility within the business in order to accommodate government development initiatives ad policies. The Executive Mayor Mafunda Makhubu thanked the Grootvlei Power Station for all their help and support throughout the years citing that such collaborative work between them can actually yield more for the community.

There are a number of identif ied challenges in terms of local procurement empowerment initiatives include, amongst others; lack of competition & capacity from local site supplier market, limited supplier opportunities and suppliers not meeting Eskom SHEQ requirements which will be mitigated by reviewing of the tender requirements to cater for identified developmental areas, hosting of supplier development workshops on an on-going basis as well as hosting of compulsory clarification meetings as and when the need arises. Eskom has also identified opportunities in the short term that will be used to enable implementation of the strategy. To ensure sustained impact, a number of measures will be put in place to monitor the implementation of the strategy, additional opportunities will be identified/ developed in the medium to long term, and ensure that opportunities are realized by the intended beneficiaries. Despite the progress made to date, there is still a significant amount of work to be done to address the socio economic

challenges facing the locality. In response to this, a socio-economic strategy has been developed which is meant to ensure that transformation objectives are addressed during operations, execution of outages, refurbishments and recovery projects.

Gibela construction on par In spite of some minor setbacks, Gibela’s train manufacturing site outside Dunnottar has now reached its 50% completion milestone, exactly one year into the construction programme. This is where 580 commuter trains will be built for the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) and during a visit to the building site on June 5, it was evident that Gibela is conscious of its role as a catalyst for economic development. The manufacturing facility consists of the main factory where the trains will be assembled, a training centre where South Africans will augment their rail-related technical skills, testing facilities for static and dynamic testing, and a 27 hectare supplier park. All building packages are

due to be complete by the end of the year and it is expected that the first car body will start as soon as all industrial equipment has been tested and commissioned. In total, 822 jobs have been created by the construction programme, 716 of which have been f illed by people from neighbouring communities. According to Gibela’s communication officer Pamella Radebe, 493 jobs out of a total of 576 have been f illed by local people from the Springs, Tsakane, Duduza, Alrapark and MacKenzieville communities. “Gibela has completed the first round of recruitment of full-time employees at the facility, successfully f illing all 49 skilled and semi-skilled boiler making and welding

Restoring health with Clustered water It was literally a case of life and death for Dr Lee Lorenzen when his wife Penny was severely ill, suffering from chronic pain and multiple viral infections. “I had exhausted everything,” he says. “We tried medication, vitamins, herbs, acupuncture, chiropractic–you name it, we tried it. Nothing was working.” Finally he decided to try healing springs and soak her in water which people claimed produced healing. When she really did get better, he started his research in earnest. What was in the water that produced such spectacular results? Dr Lorenzen quickly found out that it wasn’t the chemistry. So he began to look at the water itself. Using a new method of flash-freezing water with liquid nitrogen right at the springs’ source, Dr. Lorenzen and a team of Japanese scientists discovered that the water was microclustered, or structured in geometric rings. The molecules themselves look like sixsided snowflakes when frozen, and these hexagons were most prevalent in the water of healing springs. Trying to replicate the hexagonal water rings in the laboratory was not easy. Since the water molecules are “biologically active,” they work well in hydrating living tissue, unlike ordinary water. Most importantly, the size and shape of these unique water molecules allows them to pass through cell walls freely, delivering oxygen, nutrients, proteins and enzymes, while removing toxic substances. Preparing this type of water involves a fourteen step process which includes running a high-pressure purified water steam through ceramic, then exposing it to magnetic fields and a template material. The significance of the six-sided shape of the water molecules is profound. First, the molecules are the right shape to fit through the hexagonal channels in the cell membrane and inside the cell itself. Also, most importantly, says Dr Lorenzen, this is the primary form of water in a very young child. Research done by Doctor Katayama, published in a scientific paper. described it as “clustered water,” or “biowater.” He showed that this was the dominant form of water in very young potent cells. Evidently by the time we reach the age of 36, the amount of biowater or clustered water drops by 60 percent. “The stability of the hexagonal shape gives the water and the rehydrating cell systems a biologically active form of

water. We also know that as these protein systems tend to degenerate, the net amount of water in the cell systems tend to drop off. They tend to degenerate as part of the natural aging process,” says Dr Lorenzen. “There’s an average of about 75 trillion cells in a human being, and water is necessary for transport, for waste removal, and for intercellular communication,” he concludes. “When people go back on solutions, cells are being reenergized because enzymes are coming back to normal levels. We’re giving those enzymes the structure they need to function. “Basically this is not a therapy,” asserts Dr Lorenzen. “This is not a disease treatment. If you go and have restorative surgery, a crushed bone for example, an orthopedic surgeon rebuilds that bone and gives it structure and function. We’re basically doing the same thing [with clustered water] at the cellular level. And frankly, it’s so simple, it’s been overlooked.” Using this type of water, the body itself can eliminate edema, help improve intercellular water pressure, help improve protein structure, and cell function. “We’re creating a biologically active, very rapidly utilized form of water in hexagonal rings that exists in nature, that exists as the normal healthy form of water, says Dr Lorenzen. “We’re putting it back into older systems that they can do their jobs and give these age-damaged systems a chance to do their work.” Biochemist Steve Chemiske writes that these hexagonal water clusters which support the DNA structure “vibrate at specific resonant frequencies and these frequencies can help restore homeostasis to cell structures in the body through signal transduction…the process by which one form of energy is converted to another.” “When clustered water is consumed, high frequency information is transmitted to proteins… and this wave of information is carried throughout the body like a ‘wakeup call’ to restore normal function.” As a precursor of electro-magnetic energy medicine, the use of this special water may be a powerful boon to the health professions. “We’re not treating disease,” reaffirms Dr. Lorenzen. “We’re trying to restore order, so that the body can heal itself.” Advert on page 9

positions as planned,” she said. To date, 73 learnerships and apprenticeships have also been f illed with historically disadvantaged applicants from within the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. In March, local historically disadvantaged small, medium and micro-sized enterprises (SMME) suppliers submitted their profiles in order to be considered for work on the plant. To date, a number of

appointments have been made and Gibela has spent R128 million on local SMME’s. “Gibela believes communication with stakeholders is a priority and holds monthly meetings at its Stakeholders Engagement Forum,” Pamella explained. Once complete, thousands of people including engineers, artisans, technicians, train drivers and technologists will benefit from the facility

Child Protection week commemorated Magda Maritz To commemorate Child Protection Week which drew to a close on June 4, Happiness Primary School in Alrapark hosted a child safety and anti bullying campaign, whereby members from SAPS Nigel and off icials from the Health Department provided learners with tips on how to be safe. Another concerning aspect addressed during the campaign, was bullying. According to statistics released by the Department of Social Development, one in three children in South Africa fall victim

to physical, sexual or emotional abuse before their 18th birthday. Children are very trusting and often powerless to speak up about the abuse and violence they experience. It is therefore critical to fight for their protection, safety and right to security. This begs the question: what are we as individuals and communities doing to protect our children. According to the school principal Mrs Patricia Gama, members of the police, metro police, Department of Social

Learners from Happiness Primary School held up placards that speak for itself during the school’s Child Safety and Anti Bullying campaign on June 2.

Development and other stakeholders all gathered at the school event to pledge the safety and protection of young children in the community. “The theme of our campaign is ‘Let us protect children to move Alrapark forward’. We need to help our children and create a safe environment for them to grow up in,” she explained. Among the learners, some held up placards containing words such as “stay away rapists” and “protect me”, which

speak for itself. Sgt Nellie Dwaba from SAPS Nigel addressed the learners and provided them with valuable information on how to protect themselves and prevent being physically or sexually hurt by anyone. Any child exposed to any form of physical or emotional abuse should not hesitate to speak up and ask for help. A parent who suspects their children might be bullied or abused, should report it to the local authorities or phone ChildLine toll free on 080 005 5555.

AIDS candlelight Memorial Day celebrated at Nigel Prison It was a joyous occasion for members and inmates of Nigel Correctional Centre when they joined hands to celebrate International Aids Candlelight Memorial Day on May 18. The International AIDS International Memorial serves as a community mobilisation campaign to raise social consciousness about HIV and AIDS, even to communities within a rehabilitation structure such as the Department of Correctional Service. The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, coordinated by the Global Network of People living with HIV, is one of the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilisation campaigns for HIV awareness in the world. Subsequently, 16 May 2004 was declared as International Aids Candlelight Memorial Day. It was started by people living with HIV and Aids, to break down the barriers of stigma and discrimination. The mission of the International AIDS

Candlelight Memorial is to honour, support, and advocate for those who have been affected by the global HIV epidemic through mobilising communities for a world where people do not die of AIDS and people living with HIV can live in health and with dignity. The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial is much more than just a memorial. The official proceedings at Nigel Correctional Centre were opened with prayer by Skhumbuzo Myeza, where after correctional officer Mrs Morgan discussed the purpose of the event. When offender Patrick Sebatjane took to the stage, he delivered a powerful message on the subject of HIV/AIDS in South Africa, leaving fellow inmates in trepidation of the prominent health concern the illness still pose in everyday life. Statistics have show that South Africa has the highest prevalence of HIV/AIDS compared to any other country in the world. The programme concluded with a dance number.

Members and inmates of Nigel Correctional Centre when they joined hands to light a candle and celebrate International Aids Candlelight Memorial Day. The Commissioner of the Department of Correctional Services has invited all members and offenders to participate in a HIV prevalence survey, whose purpose will be to guide the Department’s future decision making, its policies and its

programmes. With 33 million people living with HIV/AIDS today, the International Candlelight Memorial serves as an important intervention for global solidarity, breaking down barriers of stigma and discrimination and giving hope to new generations.

We learn how water transports protein through the body, but are now finding out that the movement of water is just as precise. In fact, cell membranes throughout the body utilize special proteins to transport water and intracellular water turns out to be highly organized. Water appears to exist within the cell in a complex multilayered structure.
