Onstuitbare vlamme Nigel Boere oorleef die grootste veldbrand wat boere in hierdie distrik nog ooit in die afgelope 40 jaar beleef het. Boere kyk hulpeloos toe hoe hul plase in vlamme gehul is ná verwoestende brande op 22 Augustus, ‘n datum wat sekerlik nooit vergeet sal word nie. Vlamme het oor al die voorbrande en brandpaaie, selfs oor die snelweg gespring en net aanhou voortstu. Duisende hektaar veld, weiding, landerye en plaas inplemente is tot niet en boere ly miljoene rande se skade. Die oorsaak van verlede Dinsdag se snellende

brande wat onbeheerbaar was, word nog ondersoek. Daar word beweer dat die brande wat in Heidelberg ‘n aanvang geneem het tot by Kinross voort gewoed het. Lucas Stoltz, plaasboer van Witkop het aan Rekord vertel dat die skade op sy plaas alleen ongeveer R6 miljoen rand beloop. Sy grootste skade was sy drie trekkers en ander items soos ‘n planter, plukkerkoppe, koringtafel, weiding, drade, oesreste en sy lapa het deurgeloop. Tien speen kalwers asook 5 van sy beeste het omgekom. Vervolg op bladsy 5

‘n Rustige oggend wat Sophia Jansen in haar tuin beplan het, is wreed versteur deur ‘n mislukte kaping van ‘n wit afleweringswa wat ‘n pakkie aan die oorkantste bure moes besorg. Donderdag, 24 Augustus om 10:20 het Sophia by die ingang van haar oprit met haar tuingrafie ewe luiters geskoffel toe ‘n onbekende VW Polo met 4 insittendes vlak voor haar ingang stilhou. Die volgende oomblik spring die persoon links agter uit die Polo en vuur skote af op die afleweringswa wat aan die anderkant van die pad staan, wat hulle vermoedelik wou kaap. In Sophia se skokkende toestand hardloop sy blindelings die pad kaalvoet af en skreeu aan almal om binne in hul wonings te gaan. Intussen het die verdagte met die vuurwapen die bestuurder van die wit afleweringswa gewond. Die bestuurder het haastig probeer wegjaag en binne in ‘n

ander erf tot stilstand gekom en beswyk. Die persoon wat saam met die bestuurder in die afleweringswa was, wat die pakkie moes aflewer wat hy in sy hand gehad het, het ylings die straat na bo ingevlug. Die gewapende verdagte het teruggespring in die Polo en hulle het met ‘n spoed weggejaag. Sunette van Eck, ‘n vriendin van Sophia het haar in die straat gekry en haar terugbesorg by haar woning, nadat die toneel afgespeel het. Die CPF, Metro en SAPS was blitsig op die toneel en word bedank vir hul flinke optrede. Sophia bly reeds 20 jaar in Sheffieldweg en dis die eerste keer dat sy ‘n toeskouer van so ‘n grusame gebeurtenis was. Laasweek is ‘n tyd wat Sophia nie weer wil beleef nie, want net voor hierdie voorval was sy reeds betrokke by die brande waar haar kinders tot veiligheid gebring moes word.

Multiple vehicle pileup on N3 Three motorists burnt beyond recognition and, four others hospitalised after a multiple vehicle pileup on the N3 north at the R550 Interchange between Heidelberg and Vosloorus. Six articulating trucks, and eleven light motor vehicles were involved in a pileup and subsequently, three of the articulating trucks, two Pick-up trucks and three sedans caught alight. Two occupants in one of the Pick-up trucks and one occupant from an articulating truck were trapped and burnt inside their vehicles. Rescue teams from both Heidelberg and Ekurhuleni Disaster and Emergency Management Services (DEMS) collectively battled the blaze and used specialised rescue tools to recover the deceased from the wrecks. Both directions of the freeway were closed to traffic for the duration of the rescue operations. The traffic was diverted onto R103 road (Old Heidelberg road) as an alternative. The preliminary reports revealed that

Choosing the right pet So, you’ve made the decision to adopt a pet – good for you! Now, it’s just a case of choosing the right pet to suit your lifestyle and circumstances – an important decision all of its own! All too often we see pets being neglected or given up for adoption because they are inconvenient or do not fit well into the owner’s life. Taking time to research your options, before making an adoption decision, is one of the most important things to do, and will set you up for a fulfilling relationship with your new pet. The Pet Food Industry Association of Southern Africa (PFI) has compiled the below list of considerations to help you decide on what type of pet to bring into your home: Personal preference and history: To start with, it’s important to be clear on what type of pets interest you and which do not. Often this is influenced by one’s history – the pets they may have grown up with and the relationship that they had with those pets. Also consider your own preferences now and what sort of consequences of the pet you’re willing to live with – would you be happy to have a litter box in your house that needs to be cleaned regularly? Can you live with pet hair on your furniture? Are you sensitive to noise or will a certain level of barking be acceptable to you? Do your allergies allow you to live in harmony with the pet? These are all indicators that will not only lead you to a specific type of

pet, but perhaps a certain breed too. Space: What is your living arrangement like, how much space does it allow and is it secure? Based on this you should pick a pet that can happily exist in the space available. If you are renting, be sure that your lease allows for you to keep pets. Time availability: do you have ample time at your disposal to focus on your pet? Regular play is very beneficial for both cats and dogs and training and regular walks a must for most dogs (especially those more active breeds and types). Limited availability may mean a more independent cat or fish is more suitable. Level of activity: are you able to incorporate more strenuous activity and exercise into your routine, which more active breeds of dog, for example, require? Or would a less active breed or cat be more suitable? Budget: pets do not come cheap. Aside from the adoption fee that most shelters charge there is the ongoing expense of health care and veterinary checkups, grooming, routine pest control, food, toys and pet insurance to consider. Feeding a registered pet food that meets your pet’s nutritional requirements is essential for longevity and good health. Find a brand that suits your budget, confirming they’re a member of the PFI to ensure you’re feeding the best that you can afford – a brand that has committed to producing safe, nutritious pet food. Family dynamic: It’s very important that the entire family is on board when deciding to get a pet, as they will no doubt need to help out with raising the pet from time to time. Whether or not you have or plan to have children may also influence the type of pet you decide to adopt. Also consider your future plans and desires to ensure that this is indeed the right time to be getting a pet. Knowledge and understanding: It’s a good idea to research the type of pet and breed that you’re considering. There’s a great deal of information available, which will aid you in understanding your future pet’s unique needs and make it easier to commit to their general life expectancy. The better equipped and prepared you are to meet these needs, the more relaxed and settled your pet is likely to be. A pet is a lifetime commitment, as in, the pet’s lifetime, and is not a decision that should be taken lightly or made impulsively. The Pet Food Industry Association of Southern Africa (PFI) is a non-profit, industry Association, made up of industry players that, by becoming a member, commit to the same principles and ethics of the PFI – to uphold safe, quality pet nutrition, which has the best interests of the pet as its sole purpose. For any adoptions, now that you have the knowlegde visit Nigel SPCA @ Spaarwater Road, off Nigel Road between Dunnottar & Nigel or call them on 084 485 7020/ 084 485 7029. Heidelberg SPCA can be visited @ 1 Retief Street, Heidelberg or contact them on 016 342-4114 / 071 994-9960.

Onstuitbare vlamme Vanaf bladsy 1

Lucas het vertel dat hul tuis was toe die brande uitgebreek het en dat hy hul voertuie tot veiligheid gebring het, waarna hul moes toekyk hoe die vlamme verwoesting saai. Hy vertel dat sy plaaswerkers dapper geveg het en hul lewens op die spel geplaas het om te red wat te redde was. Hy vertel dat hy ‘n vrou tussen die smeulende vlamme gewaar het en hom gehaas het om haar te hulp te snel. Met nadere ondersoek vind hy dat dit Suster Wilma, van Nigel Tuiste vir Bejaardes was, wat kaalvoet hardloop om van haar brandende bakkie te ontvlug. Verward en paniekbevange deel sy hom mee dat haar hondjies nog in die bakkie is, maar helaas moes hul na veiligheid vlug. Na afloop van die skrikwekkende gebeure is die hondjies ongedeerd gevind en slegs een kant van Wilma se bakkie is deur die vlamme geskroei. Van die boere se stoetkoeie en skape het doodgebrand en moes geslag word. ‘n Ander boer se huis op sy plaas Uitsig het afgebrand. Karkasse van skape en blesbokke het orals rondgestrooi gelê. ‘n Rampfonds is op die been gebring, boere het saamgestaan en hulp van verskeie oorde is aangebied. Voerbale by die duisende het ingestroom en instansies het op verskeie maniere bygedra. Oesreste is voorsien. Vervoer vir die bale is beskikbaar gestel. Bale is van sover as Ermelo en Witbank geskenk. Individue wat beserings en brandwonde opgedoen het is almal gestabiliseer. Volgens berigte het slegs een slagoffer aan beserings beswyk. Dirk Lourens is steeds in ICU in die Baragwanath-hospitaal nadat hy brandwonde oor sowat 35% tot 65% van sy liggaam opgedoen het toe sy klere in die veldbrand vlam gevat het. Volgens medisie gaan Dirk nog ten minste 2 weke in ICU moet deurbring as gevolg van die erge brandwonde, selfs sy hande het so gebrand dat Dirk nie eers ‘n selfoon kan vashou nie. Alicia, Dirk se vrou, vertel dat so baie om hul verwoes is. Sy vertel dat sy Dirk net een keer op ‘n dag kan besoek vir 2 ure en die koste beloop R200 net aan brandstof daagliks. Die besoeke beteken die wêreld vir Dirk omdat hy elke more met afwagting uitkyk na Alicia se besoek sodat sy hom kan versorg en hom die gemoedsrus kan gee dat sy gesin veilig en versorg is. Alicia vertel sy is baie dankbaar vir die voedselskenkings en die ondersteuning en liefde van die gemeenskap. Alhoewel die koste om net daagliks by Dirk besoek af te lê van so aard is dat sy finansieel dit nie kan bybring wil ons graag ‘n beroep op ons lesers doen wat fondse kan skenk om hierdie besoeke vir haar moontlik te maak. Die fondse kan by tjekrekening A Lourens FNB 62205077036, takkode 251042, Nigel inbetaal word. In tye soos hierdie kan mens sien dat hierdie klein plaaslike gemeenskap van ons hande vat en mildelik bydra. Rekord kantoor kan ook geskakel word of as afsetgebied gebruik word vir items wat lesers wil skenk. Daar is talle mense wat met niks gelaat is enige skenkings is welkom om te voorsien in behoeftes van hierdie gesinne.

Wanneer vroue bid In die konsentrasie kamp, meer as 100 jaar gelede, sit Anette Marais op ’n stomp en skud die stof van haar verslete klere af. Rondom haar sit die groepie bekende gesigte van moeë vrouens. Net ’n paar tree verder is die hoë draad van die konsentrasie kamp. Sy slaan haar Bybel oop en begin lees. Sy het in die donker ure van die nag geworstel met God en Hom gesmeek vir ‘n boodskap om hierdie vrouens te bemoedig, want wie weet hoe lank nog . … Anette lees die woorde van Matt 10:29 – “Is twee mossies nie vir ’n sent te koop nie, en tog sal nie een van hulle op die grond val sonder die wil van julle Vader nie.” Terwyl sy besig is om hierdie woorde te lees, kom sit daar ’n vaal klein mossie op haar skouer. Die groepie vrouens staar in verbasing na wat voor hulle gebeur, en so word die mossie, die teken van hoop in die onmoontlike omstandighede van die konsentrasie kamp in Bethulie. Dit was fantasties om in die maande wat volg te sien hoe die mossies van Bethulie ’n baken van geloof en hoop word vir hierdie vrouens. Op 21 Mei 1902 was die oorlog verby, Anette het op pad terug na haar huis gestop by ’n vrou met invloed en haar vertel van die mossie-boodskap, sy het dit weer oorvertel en Genl Jan Smuts het in 1923 die mossie op die land se kleinste muntstuk (kwartpennie) laat verskyn. Amper 80 jaar later sit Jak de Priester in ’n park in Londen. Sy geld is op, hy kry nie werk nie, hy mis die meisie van sy drome en sonskyn en biltong. Hy slaan sy klein silwer Bybeltjie oop en lees die “mossie” boodskap en bid vir die soveelste keer vir werk! Vroeg die volgende oggend lui sy telefoon en dis die oproep waarvoor hy gewag het, hy spring op die eerste trein en begin met ‘n lang dag se onderhoude. Moeg maar gelukkig en met ’n permanente werk klim hy weer laatmiddag op die trein. Toe hy inklim sien hy ’n muntstuk op die vloer lê, hy tel dit op, en daar op ’n trein in Londen hou hy ’n Suid-Afrikaanse 1c in sy

hand, met ’n mossie agter op. Hy vertel dat die wêreld rondom hom gaan stil staan het, dat hy besef het dat God daar by hom op die trein is en dat gebed sy waarborg is in hierdie stukkende wêreld. Vandag ’n paar jaar later, skud ek my beursie uit. Ek sit ‘n 1c neer vir my vriendin met borskanker, nog ‘n 1c vir huwelike wat sukkel, ’n 1c vir iemand na aan my hart se werksomstandighede, vir enkel ouers en weduwees, en ek besef die mossie boodskap is dalk net een versie in ’n dik Bybel, maar ’n Almagtige, liefdevolle God staan agter dit! Here, dankie, dat daar altyd hoop is. Dankie, vir bakens langs die pad wat ons help om geduldig te wees, terwyl ons wag vir U, om op die perfekte tyd ons omstandighede te verander. Gister terwyl ek vir my kliënte sit en wag en ek dieselfde boodskap vir my vrou gestuur het, het 3 mossies op my voertuig se voorste “bushbar” kom sit en het ek dadelik geweet ons Koning praat met my om my gerus te stel. Daar is niemand soos Hy nie en Hy sal altyd na ons kyk en ons versorg. Hy’s net ‘n gebed ver. Geseënde “mossie” dag vir jou. Nuusbrief - Suidlanders

Corruption 46 Pedestrians Residents owe Art development R31.8 billion arrested school open

Traffic Officer contributing in bribery will face charges of corruption and theft for abusing entrusted power for personal benefit. This type of action usually occurs by taxi operators that are stopped during stop and search operations for vehicle overloadings. “I applaud our Law Enforcement Agencies for the swift arrest of one of our Traffic Officer on R55 Olievenhoutbosch. I will never allow off icers to dent the image of Police when they should be discharging their duties with loyalty and dedication. Overloaded vehicles threaten road safety and contribute to fatal crashes on our roads. The overloaded vehicles put the driver’s lives at risk, passengers and other road users. Our Law Enforcement Agencies will continue to intensify the law on vehicle overloading and corruption,” said MEC Nkosi-Malobane. The MEC cautioned members of the public who pay bribes to the officials to refrain from such bad practices. She further urged officers to arrest without any hesitation any officer who solicit bribe and urged the public to report fraud and corruption on 0861-400-800.

Rekord readers travelling on the N3 freeway daily to attend jobs will be relieved to be informed that the majority of the pedestrians were arrested for crossing on the busy freeway while others were found to be walking under the influence of substance abuse. Gauteng Community Safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane has welcomed the arrest of 46 pedestrians by Law Enforcement Agencies on the N3 freeway. The pedestrians were arrested in Marlboro, Linksfield as well as Van Buuren roads after a Joint Law Enforcement Agencies operation on August 14. Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road user group to road traffic fatal crashes and contribute more than 50% of the total fatalities recorded annually. Gauteng continue to experience mass exodus of fatalities due to pedestrians crossing on busy highways. “Our Law Enforcement Agencies will continue to intensify the operations in 132 pedestrian’s hazardous locations. I call upon pedestrians to stop crossing and walking on the busy roads to ensure their own safety,” added MEC Nkosi-Malobane. Gauteng Community Safety appeal to pedestrians to use only pedestrian bridges to cross to minimize fatalities on Gauteng roads.

Manne staan saam

Gauteng residents owe municipalities R31.8 billion for services and taxes, says Finance MEC Barbara Creecy in response to Legislature questions on municipal debt. This amount represents 65% or the largest share of debt due to municipalities for services in the province. The second biggest debtors are commercial customers with R13 billion or 27%.

Licensing service update Open day at Birnel College The rendering of services at the Dipaleseng Municipality, particularly traffic and licensing have been adversely affected by the ongoing renovations of the municipal buildings which commenced late last year and are presently at an advanced stage. This second phase includes the construction of the first floor level on the east wing and renovation of the existing west wing off ices which are going to house the traffic and licensing section. After engagements between the management of the municipality and the contractor, the affected section within the building has been prioritized in an attempt

to restore the delivery of these services as soon as possible. Based on this information, it hereby makes it possible to complete the construction work on the particular section and reinstate the services by the end of September 2017. The municipality greatly apologizes for the inconveniences caused to the community members during this period of upgrading and renovations to municipal buildings. On the same breath gratitude needs to be extended to communities for their continued understanding and tolerance during these times.

Municipal employees, engineers and contractors during the site inspection.

The MX2 proactive, early-warning features that allow Matrix to identify potential dangers as quickly as possible. The MX2 includes all the features of the MX1 plus additional security benefits designed to reduce the risks faced by road users.

Cindy van der Westhuizen wat geen bekendstelling nodig het nie het die naweek van 26 Augustus aan die FBBosveld Pretrit Sanddrif 4 x 4 fondsinsamelings projek te Brits deelgeneem. Cindy is deur Rough Stuff Suspension Shaun Van Den Vywer geborg en Andrea Houghton was die navigator tydens die byeenkoms. Cindy vertel dat hul Vrydag vertrek het en die naweek by Kokoriba tuisgegaan het. Saterdagoggend 7 uur is sy ingeskryf om die wedren aan te durf wat om 18:00 geeindig het. Dit was ‘n snikhete dag en die roete het gestrek deur mooi groen wuiwende lande, sandduine en riviere. In die begin van die roete was daar baie koppies en Cindy moes die draai en rotse

met manne durf trotseer en sy vertel dit was ‘n opwindende uitdaging. Die prettigste deel van die byeenkoms was waar die navigators se kennis getoets is deur legkaarte te bou en tennisballe op ‘n skinkbord te balanseer. Navigators moes ook aan die buite kant van die voertuie plek inneem met twee rigting radios, waar sy aan die drywer wat geblinddoek was die pad moes verduidelik oor die bulte en draaie. Die moeilikste hindernis was die modder gate wat al jou inspanning vereis het. Een van die deelnemers is na die naaste hospitaal vervoer nadat hy ernstige beserings met ‘n ongeluk opgedoen het. Verskeie manne het nie daarin geslaag om die wedren te voltooi nie as gevolg van die rowwe baan toestande. Uitslae was gister nog nie bekend nie.
