Mountain Reserve ‘in decline’ DALEEN FOUCHÉ

T

HE Montagu Mountain Reserve – a tourism attraction described as “the climbing mecca” of South Africa – is in danger of serious neglect if the management of this area is not reviewed. This is according to Ron Brunnings, who addressed the Montagu Eco Club at their annual general meeting on Thursday. Brunnings served on the Montagu Mountain Reserve Advisory Board, which was dissolved earlier this month. According to him, the advisory board’s official term ended in 2008, but a new board was not appointed. It was therefore decided that the board

continues its work as an un-constituted body. Brunnins says that the board was disbanded because local authorities no longer “heed its advice”. Brunnings, who is increasingly concerned about the reserve and its assets, says the Langeberg Municipality, custodian of the reserve, has no formal staff allocation and no dedicated budget, except for R30 000 per year for trail cleaning, which must be shared with Dassieshoek Reserve in Robertson. “Following the last local government election, it appears as though council and the Langeberg Municipality have distanced themselves further and further from their responsibili-

ties regarding the reserve.” Another concern, voiced by Brunnings, is that the municipality may re-proclaim the mountain reserve and leave it unprotected. He says it would therefore be “preferable” that the reserve be re-proclaimed in terms of the Protected Areas Act. Brunnings says that the advisory board compiled a management plan for the reserve, which was completed in 2006. But six years later, it must still be considered by council, despite being placed on the agenda on five separate occasions. Therefore the management plan has not been circulated for public comment, he says. But with the disbandment of the advisory

board, Brunnings intends to make the document public. The Montagu Mountain Reserve attracts between 4 000 and 5 000 people per year, comprised of walkers, hikers and rock climbers. Brunnings estimates that the reserve generates about R60 000 a year, despite little or no gate monitoring. Justin Lawson, a climbing guide in Montagu, says the reserve is important for tourism in Montagu and estimates that climbers spend R64 000 per month and R800 000 per year in Montagu. He believes that, if managed correctly, Montagu could follow the lead of Clanwilliam, which has an annual income of over R4 million generat-

ed by climbing activities in the area. Brunnings says that on “a positive note”, the municipality recently advertised positions for a Protected Areas Advisory Committee. The Montagu Mountain Reserve’s 1 288 hectares are home to a variety of fauna and flora. It surrounds Montagu on three sides. “In essence, the Montagu Mountain Reserve is an asset that we cannot afford to ignore. It is there for conservation, education, recreation and job creation.” . The Langeberg Municipality was contacted for comment but could not respond before the Gazette went to print.

THE Western Cape Farmworker of the Year competition, run by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture (WCDA), is the only farmworker competition in the country and has been running since 2002. It currently attracts more than 1 000 entrants from 16 regions in the Western Cape. The prestigious competition will reward the winner with a prize of more than R100 000. The local instalment of this competition takes place on Thursday, August 30 in Robertson. Shoprite has recognised the valuable contribution farmworkers make towards the agricultural sector by sponsoring the Western Cape Farmworker of the Year competition to the tune of R750 000. Brian Weyers, a director of the Shoprite Group, said at the launch of the sponsorship, that they are proud to be part of this competition and they see themselves as a fitting partner.

sure that Shoprite has quality food products on its shelves,” said Mr Gerrit van Rensburg, Western Cape Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development. Minister Van Rensburg said that he would like to see this competition being expanded nationally, that a National Prestige Farmworker Forum, represented by all the national winners are created, and that funding for Equity Share Schemes could be resumed to give farmworkers the opportunity to be owners. According to Minister Van Rensburg “this sponsorship from Shoprite is a perfect example of how business and government can work better together to achieve some of these objectives for farmworkers.” The overall winner, together with all the category winners of the Western Cape Farmworker of the Year competition, will be announced on November 9. This will take place during a gala event to be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

Ondersteuning vir Hospice DALEEN FOUCHÉ DIE Breederivier Hospice is verlede week “oorweldig” met simpatieboodskappe en seënwense ná ’n artikel in die Gazette verskyn het oor die organisasie se geldelike verknorsing (“Hospice in financial crisis”, August 21). Jane Phillips, algemene bestuurder by die Breederivier Hospice, sê baie lede van die gemeenskap het laat weet dat dit onaanvaarbaar is dat Hospice besig is om onder te gaan. Maar mooi woorde is nie al wat Hospice verlede week ontvang het nie. Die Boerevereniging het laat weet dat hulle ’n dans ten bate van die organisasie gaan reël. Verder het die Hospice-susters ’n plan van aksie beraam. Die Bonnievalesusters beplan ’n fees, terwyl die Robertson-sus-

ters ’n hoenderbraai wil reël. Phillips sê dat klere by die bakkievrag by hul winkels aangekom het. “Die winkels was baie besig dié week.” Sy sê korporatiewe donasies mag ook moontlik deurkom. Hospice het verlede week met die departement van sosiale ontwikkeling onderhandel om weer hul aansoek om ’n subsidie in te handig. Hospice het ook die week met die departement van gesondheid en die uitvoerende burgemeester vergader om moontlike oplossings te vind. Phillips sê dat die diens van Hospice wat gesny word op Montagu, Ashton en Zolani – naamlik dat pasiënte van die departement van gesondheid nie meer toegang sal verkry tot Hospice se dokter of maatskaplike

)) The Robertson police requests that women be aware of their surroundings and not put their safety in jeopardy by being alone in the company of men. This follows a complaint of rape, alleged to have taken place on August 19 in Môreson, Robertson. No arrests have been made. The case is being investigated by the FCS Unit in Worcester. If you have any information regarding the case, you can phone the unit at 0 023 346 5800. )) The Robertson police would like to warn people about a con-man who phones individuals and businesses to inform them that the bank details of Fercon Foods (Montagu Gardens in Cape Town) has changed. The suspect then sends new banking details, which police says are registered in his own name and wich do not belong to Fercon Foods. The police warns people to be cautious about paying money into unconfirmed bank accounts.

werker nie - ’n ekstra diens is wat Hospice uit hulle eie gedoen het. “Ons het self gevoel om aan hierdie pasiënte die algehele pakket van paliatiewe sorg te gee, maar omdat ons nou tans in die situasie is wat ons onsself bevind, kan ons nie langer die ekstra diens vir hulle lewer nie. Dit is nie iets wat die departement van ons verwag het nie.” Phillips sê die pasiënte van Zolani, Ashton en Montagu sal nou die diens by die Bram Home Based Care Project kry. In die res van die Langeberg sal Hospice voortgaan om die diens te verskaf. “Dit is jammer dat Hospice nie meer holistiese sorg kan voorsien nie.” Phillips sê Hospice is “baie dankbaar” vir die gemeenskap se ondersteuning en bedank almal wat simpatiseer en ’n bydra lewer.

Female members of the Robertson police are busy planting flowers at the Robertson police station. )) The Robertson police celebrated women in the month of August with various activities. A workshop for women was held on August 8 in Montagu. On August 15 female officers from the police and traffic department held a roadblock at the entrance to Ashton. Flowers were also planted at the Robertson police station on August 23. On Friday, August 24, police did a foot patrol through Robertson’s central business district and handed out pamphlets on domestic violence.

Kletskamer maak amok DALEEN FOUCHÉ ’n SELFOONKLETSKAMER het onlangs opslae in die Langeberg gemaak en ’n plaaslike vrou laat vrees vir haar veiligheid. Die kletskamer Krymeka is nasionaal beskikbaar met ’n plaaslike kamer vir elke dorp. ’n Kamer vir Robertson, McGregor, Ashton, Bonnievale en Montagu is per selfoon op Krymeka beskikbaar. ’n Plaaslike vrou, wat anoniem wil bly, sê sy het vroeër vanjaar uitgevind dat haar naam swart gesmeer word in dié kletskamer. Sy verduidelik dat sy self nie by die kletskamer geregistreer is nie, maar het by ander mense uitgevind dat daar van haar gepraat word. Kommentaar van seksuele aard is ook geplaas en daar is gesê dat “slange uit haar mond kom”. Die vrou het die hulp van die polisie ingeroep toe haar huisadres op Krymeka bekend gemaak is. “Ek was in ’n toestand– dit voel of ek

die heeltyd dopgehou word.” Sake soos dié word verwys na die Worcester-polisie se eenheid vir gesinsgeweld, kinderbeskerming en seksuele misdrywe. Maar die eenheid sê dit is moeilik om sake soos dié op te volg, omdat skuilname gebruik is. Die Gazette het die webmeester van Krymeka probeer kontak vir kommentaar oor die kletskamer se privaatheidsbeleid. Die webmeester se e-posadres krymeka@gmail.com, bestaan nie en die selfoonnommer wat voorsien word, skakel deur na MTN se weerdiens. Daar is ook geen opsie in die kletskamer om skadelike kommentaar te verwyder of te rapporteer nie. Sarah Rice, woordvoerder van die bekende selfoonkletskamer MXit, sê dié kletskamer het ’n inhoudsbeleid wat voorkom dat mense se privaatheid geskend word en inkriminerende inhoud gepubliseer word. MXit het ook ’n dokument beskikbaar met riglyne oor hoe ouers hul kinders in selfoonkletskamers kan beskerm.

Op die pad van herstel en selfstandigheid DALEEN FOUCHÉ

“E

K het gekies om nie te gaan lê nie en ek lewe ’n vol lewe.” Dit is die inspirerende woorde van Tommy Adams, ’n Montaguinwoner wat tien jaar terug in ’n gruwelike motorfietsongeluk betrokke was en die gebruik van sy regterarm verloor het. En alhoewel die lang pad na herstel ’n moeilike een was, is Tommy besig om weer selfstandig te raak en op sy eie voete te staan. Tommy vertel dat hy op 13 September 2002 in ’n motorfietsongeluk betrokke was wat byna sy lewe geëis het, maar sê hy kan nie veel van die ongeluk onthou nie. Tommy sê dat deur “’n bestieing van die Here” het ’n dokter op die ongelukstoneel aangekom. Hy sê die dokter het ’n gaatjie in sy keel gemaak sodat hy nie in sy eie bloed verstik nie. Tommy is na die hospitaal geneem en was vir 15 dae in ’n koma. “Toe ek my bewussyn herwin, kon ek nie praat, my arms of my regterbeen beweeg nie. Ek kon net my linkerbeen beweeg.” Sy lang pad na herstel het by die Panorama-kliniek begin en

Tommy Adams teen Desember 2002 is hy terug Montagu toe waar hy in die tehuis vir ouer persone gaan bly het vir 13 maande. “Ek kon steeds nie praat nie en ook nie my arms of my regterbeen beweeg nie.” Tommy het begin met drie fisioterapiesessies per week en het dit later afgeskaal na twee en toe na een sessie per week. “Vrywilligers het my gehelp met die oefeninge en ek het spraakoefeninge by twee juffrouens gekry.” Om sy brein te stimuleer, het hy met die personeel gesels en skaak teen granny Vi Stevens gespeel. “My pa het elke aand kom kuier en my gehelp om ’n ent te loop. Ons het lekker gelag en die

humor in die situasie probeer sien. My ma het my elke middag met die lesery gehelp.” Tommy sê hy het elke dag hard geoefen en kon gou weer trappe klim. “My ma se senuwees kon dit amper nie hou nie, sy was so bang ek val.” Maar sedertdien het Tommy weer sy onafhanklikheid teruggekry. Hy bly tans in sy eie woonstel by sy ouers se huis en bestuur sy eie motor. “Maar die motorfietsstorie het ek maar gelos.” Tommy spog dat hy ’n naelknipper aangepas het sodat hy dit self, met net sy linkerhand, kan gebruik. “Ek maak my eie skoenveters vas, knoop my eie das, skeer en knoop my hemp toe, als met een hand.” Tommy het geleer om met sy linkerhand te skryf, waar hy altyd regs was. Tommy werk vir sy pa en herstel karre en verkoop Loslitkaartjies. Tommy sê hy glo God het ’n doel met elke mens op aarde en maan dus mense “wat besig is met die verkeerde dinge” om eerder God te prys. “Julle lewe lê oop voor julle en julle het die kans om te kies.” Hy sê hy sou nie kon herstel as hy nie op die Here vertrou het nie.

A purse of your own IT is a well-known fact that women usually outlive their spouses and because of this, they will at some stage have to take control of their finances. However, is waiting for a devastating event to happen in your life a better option rather than actually knowing what your family’s financial matters are? As women, we need to understand how much money we have available to us and if there will be a sustaining amount left upon retirement, factoring in where and

how our money is being spent and on what investments and expenses you are currently paying for.

By hierdie geleentheid is daar gewyde sowel as vrolike musiek opgedis. Dié geleentheid, wat deur oud en jonk bygewoon is, is deur D. Wyngaardt gereël.

In some ways, your ability to earn an income in the future could be regarded as your greatest asset, especially if you are young, well qualified and skilled.

Perhaps you would need a lump sum initially to meet expenses not covered by your medical aid and set up an environment to cater for your disability.

Die Montagu-besoek is afgesluit met ’n optrede by die tehuis vir ouer persone, Huis Uitvugt. Hier is musiek gespeel wat die inwoners weer aan vervloë dae herinner het. “Vir ons as Kersfeeskoor was dit ’n genotvolle dag om soveel opgewondenheid in vroue se harte en lewens te bring,” het rdl. Davin Hull, ’n lid van die koor, gesê. “Ons het ons daartoe verbind om voortaan meermale by tehuise en kinderhuise op te tree.”

Retirement always seems such a long way off, but it is funny how it can creep up on you. How many paydays do you have left until retirement? Consider this: a woman of 40, planning to retire at age 60 and with a life expectancy of 75 years. She has 240 pay days left to save for retirement. Sounds like a long time, until you realise that these 240 pay days need to provide sufficient income to provide for 180 pay days in retirement! Thanks to medical technology, we are able to live longer, which means that we need to realistically consider that our retirement years may last longer than initially expected. Make sure that your retirement plan is robust enough to weather the challenges that it may face. )) Saving for a future goal. The rule of 72 says that if inflation averages at 10% over the period of your investment, your buying power halves every seven years! Make sure that your investment suits your risk profile. If you are younger you may be willing to invest for a longer period, be more aggressive and willing to take more risks. However, the older investor may want to be more conservative and prioritise capital preservation.

Substance abuse not left unchallenged Action group is working on a long-term plan DALEEN FOUCHÉ

T

HE shocking discovery that 65% of 90 students at Langeberg High School tested positive for drug use earlier this year, contributed to the establishment of the Langeberg Substance Abuse Action Group. The group was established in May this year, when various organisations gathered to tackle the problem of substance abuse in the Langeberg. Magda Vorster, chief executive officer (CEO) of the Graham and Rhona Beck Skills Centre, says a substance abuse workshop was arranged after “desperate parents” approached the centre with a request to host activities to keep the youth busy and away from drugs. But Vorster says that if one is to tackle the drug dependency problem, it has to be approached from all three angles: prevention, treatment and after-care. Thus, the action group was

established with the input of various non-profit organisations, interested parties and governmental departments including the Langeberg Municipality. “It is not a new organisation, but rather a group made up of existing organisations and using existing infrastructure.” Vorster says a facilitator helped the group write a programme for fighting substance abuse in the area. She explains that the programme is modelled on a national programme, written for municipalities to fight substance abuse. One of the more immediate needs that the action group has identified, is to create a safe and appropriate place where people can go through detoxification. Dr Adriaan Landman, principal of Langeberg High School, says the action group has submitted a request to the mayor for a space where people may receive “immediate treatment” for substance

abuse. So far, the action group has identified which organisations are responsible for each part of the programme. It has also started creating a network of people and organisations that can help drug addicts and their families. But, Vorster says, the programme is still in its baby shoes and is a long-term strategy. The immediate action is to employ a volunteer to man a 24hour helpline. The volunteer will be able to put the caller through to the appropriate organisation for help. Another “first step” is to train five volunteers in counselling. Vorster, however, says the long-term goal of the group is to establish “a much needed” rehabilitation centre” for the Langeberg area. She says although there are rehabilitation centres in Cape Town and one in Worcester, these are difficult to access because they are mostly full.

Die frustrasie van realiteitstelevisie Samewerking in die Langeberg Ná die aankondiging dat die Breederivier Hospice in geldelike moeilikheid is, het die Langeberg-gemeenskap die afgelope week met bekommernis en aksieplanne gereageer. Inwoners het eenvoudig gesê dat die situasie nie verder kan vererger nie. Verskeie planne is beraam en idees gevorm oor hoe om die organisasie te red. En die planne het nie net uit een dorp in die munisipale area gestroom nie, maar uit al vyf dorpe in die Langeberg-gemeenskap. Die situasie het weereens gewys dat gemeenskappe oor verskeie grense, plekke en vooroordele heen kan ontmoet, saamstem en selfs kan saamwerk. Die unieke samewerking sal hopelik ’n groter aksie en uitwerking hê op nie net die Hospice nie, maar ook die vele ander welsynsorganisasies wat moet veg vir oorlewing in die huidige moeilike ekonomiese klimaat. Vele lesse uit die verlede het ons al geleer dat samewerking ’n groter effek oplewer as die aksies van individue. Mag al vyf dorpe in die Langeberg ervaar hoe samewerking ’n positiewe verskil kan maak en elke moontlike geleentheid aangryp om hande te neem en vir ’n gemeenskaplike doel saamwerk.

AS daar nou een ding op televisie is wat die hel uit my frustreer, is dit die realiteits-reekse. Dit gaan my verstand te bowe dat normale, hopelik intelligente mense, ure voor die kassie kan sit en kyk hoe mense, van wie hulle nog nooit gehoor het of ooit sal ontmoet nie, hul privaat lewens en swak gedrag as vermaaklik beskou en helde maak van dié ongure mense. Ek onthou nog die ophef wat gemaak is toe die eerste Big Brother-reeks in die vroeë 2000 aangebied is – 24 uur per dag. Mense was vir weke gefassineerd met die optrede en gedrag van ’n groepie idiote wat alles sou doen om geld te wen. En soos dit nou maar is wanneer jy ’n groep mense bymekaar gooi, kom elkeen se slegte kant die een of ander tyd na vore. Sedertdien het reekse soos Keeping up with the Kardashians en The Bachelor waarin meisies in ’n huis intrek om

Business Chamber active in Langeberg MELODY MITCHELL, convenor of the Langeberg Chamber of Business, writes: A recent report in the Gazette implied that the Langeberg Business Chamber is only active in Montagu. This is incorrect. The Langeberg Business Chamber is representative of the entire municipal area, with members from all of the five towns within the municipal boundary. It was created many years ago as an amalgamation of several local business chambers in order to better represent the entire region. The Langeberg Business Chamber serves all its members as an independent non-profit association that is not affiliated with any political organisation. The Chamber gives advice and assistance to local businesses, provides networking opportunities and information sharing, and consults with the municipality and other authorities to represent and ensure the smooth running of business in our region. There is no independent business chamber operating in Montagu.

te kyk of die baas van die huis een gaan kies om mee te trou – en so het dit van een idiotiese konsep na die ander gegaan. Die ergste vir my was hierdie programme soos Fear Factor waarin mense enigiets sal doen om die prys te wen – al beteken dit hulle moet hul lewens in gevaar stel of enigiets van lewendige insekte tot wie weet wat moet eet of drink om te kan slaag. Dis siek! Tipies van ons land, moes die plaaslike televisiekanale die neiging voortsit en het ons ’n plaaslike Survivor-reeks, die hiper-belaglike Boer soek ’n Vrou-

reeks, die Kardashians se Huis van Davids en een van my grootste irritasies, Blame it on Fame waarin die daaglikse lewe van ’n tweeling weerspieël word. Wie de dinges stel daarin belang? Dis ’n slaafse navolging van daardie blondekop Paris Hilton se reekse. Is dit die modelle wat vir ons jeug voorgehou word? Ek het nie ’n probleem met kompetisies nie, maar selfs dít word soms net te veel aangedik. Voor mense my nou weer kruisig en van vooroordeel beskuldig, ek kyk gereeld na van die reekse – soos byvoorbeeld Fortuinsoekers of Bring en Braai. Ten minste word dit intelligent aangebied en ’n mens leer in die proses so iets van dinge waarvan jy nie weet nie. Hoekom moet ons alles wat die Amerikaners doen slaafs navolg – het niemand in die land enige inisiatief om iets oorspronkliks uit te dink nie? Komaan mense, gebruik bietjie verbeelding en doen iets interessants.

Soetwyn en suurpruim )) ’n Soetwyntjie vir mev. Van der Westhuizen van die plaas Arendsig buite Bonnievale. Dankie vir u goeie gesindheid en mooi manier van kommunikeer met u medemens. Mag u plaas die een goeie oes na die ander oplewer. - Van iemand by ’n meubelwinkel op Robertson. )) ’n Soetwyn aan Johan Cookson van die Robertson Toerismekantoor vir die hulp met die omruil van my voertuig se pap wiel. Baie dankie, dit word opreg waardeer. Anoniem )) ’n Soetwyn aan Johan en Annatjie Opperman wat vir ons ’n heerlike ontbyt gebring het. Baie dankie! Francis en Diana by Welbourne Shoes.

Dankie vir dié wat help MARTIN ABRAHAMS van Little Voices skryf: The Little Voices wil graag vir die raadslid van Wyk Ses, Barbara Janse, bedank omdat sy ons gehelp het om skenkings te bekom ná maande se soek na hulp vir die sopkombuis. Graag wil ons die gemeenskap bedank vir die ondersteuning op 28 Julie met die braai en pretdag wat ons gehou het as fondsinsameling. Enige besighede, instansies of persone wat ’n bydrae wil lewer, kan die Little Voices-sekretaresse, Angeline Abrahams, by 0 071 478 5577 of 078 604 8230 bel. Enige bydrae is welkom.

The police should have checked. They know the ambulance leaves the hospital at 04.30. From very concerned Montaguer.

Regstellings )) In die Gazette van 21 Augustus is verkeerdelike berig dat die Montagu Wine and Spirits Company die reserwe grootkampioenwyn by die 2012 Klein-Karoo Jongwynskou opgelewer het. Montagu Kelder het dié kampioenwyn opgelewer, ’n wit muskadel wat ook die kampioenmuskaat versterkte wyn by die skou was. Die kelder het veral goed gevaar in die witwynklasse met sy kampioen-droë wit wyn (’n colombar), kampioen-chenin blanc en kampioen-chardonnay. )) In ’n vorige uitgawe in die Gazette is verkeerdelik berig dat die Nasionale Lotery sy donasie aan die Herberg Kinderhuis gekanselleer het. Die donasie is slegs nog nie ontvang nie. Die Gazette is opreg jammer vir die foute.

Almal moet bydra DIE Boland Gazette se aanlynlesers het verlede week eenparig gestem dat “almal” hulp aan welsynsorganisasies moet skenk. Die afgelope week se vraag was: “Wie moet aan welsynsorganisasies fondse skenk?” Die opsies was: . Die regering en groot besighede; . Lede van die gemeenskap; . Hulle moet self fondse insamel; . Almal moet help waar hulle kan. 100% van aanlynlesers het die laaste opsie gekies. Besoek www.bolandgazette om aan die week se meningspeiling deel te neem.

Ten must-haves (part two) BY DANIQUE FULLARD THE search continues to select some delicious, easy to prepare, versatile and affordable ingredients which inspire us to break out of our normal weekly shopping list and surprise the family and friends with a new variety of flavourful dishes. Chicken fillets – the ideal meat when guests have arrived unannounced or if you have a hungry family demanding dinner and need a quick tasty option. You do not need special ingredients to make a delicious chicken dish. Simply look what you have in your cupboard and let that guide you. Thickly sliced chicken fillet, fried in some olive oil with salt and black pepper over some penne with some basil pesto and grilled Rosa tomatoes is a meal under 30 minutes! Otherwise, make your own marinated chicken kebabs (see below) or keep it healthy and add chicken strips to a vegetable stir fry. Easy chicken kebabs Serves 4-6 )) 8 skinless and boneless chicken thighs )) 2 onions, grated )) juice of 4 lemons )) 30 ml olive oil )) salt and freshly grounded black pepper to taste )) 50 g butter, melted Cut the chicken into cubes and set aside. Combine the grated onions, lemon juice, olive oil and seasoning in a large bowl. Add the chicken to the marinade and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for two hours. Remove the chicken from the fridge and thread the pieces onto skewers. Heat a griddle pan and grill kebabs for

six minutes on each side. Alternatively, braai the kebabs, turning more often if the coals are hot. Add the melted butter to the reserved marinade and baste the chicken throughout the grilling or braaing process. Onions – the flavour vegetable that complements so many meals: Keep a selection of spring onions, red onions and white onions to use in a variety of dishes, be it roasts, pastas, meat or poultry dishes or salads. Also use onion in relishes, sambals and sauces as a pungent and flavourful additive. Ginger – a sweet, pungent, soothing, spicy, healing herb. Ginger is aromatic and adds freshness to many meals. It also has amazing medicinal qualities. This herb improves digestion and liver function. It also controls nausea and coughing and stimulates circulation, relaxes spasms and relieves pain. Ginger increases perspiration and is excellent for helping cure colds and flu. Try out this brew to alleviate your cold and warm you up this winter. Ginger brew Makes about 3 1/2 cups )) 1/2 pound of unpeeled fresh ginger, thinly sliced )) 8 cups water )) 1 cup honey )) 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice In a saucepan, simmer the ginger and 4 cups of water, partially covered for 20 minutes.

Robertson ‘On Fire for Christ’ A vibrant interdenominational group of Christians in Robertson has started an initiative to gather on a weekly basis to pray and intercede as the watchman of Robertson and the nation of South Africa at large. This group was formed in 2010 after realising the various challenges facing the community of Robertson and surrounding areas. It is the belief of the group that everything can be prevented or prevails through prayer. Siting the rampant increase in drug abuse, cases of theft, increase in poverty, diseases, marital issues amongst other things, the group meets every single Monday evening at 19:00 to intercede and stand in the gap for the community. The group also gathers on Fridays to map out the way forward and discuss matters that may arise

during the course of the week. Any member of the public is free to join and participate in the group’s activities. Currently the group is on fire with radical evangelism, mainly targeted to the farm workers who stay in Nkqubela. Every Thursday and Friday as early as 06:00 the group drives to Nkqubela to minister the Word of God to the farm workers, before their farm trucks pick them up for work. The group has also managed to organise revival crusades and fortnight door to door visits in Droëheuwel, Morrison and Panorama. Future plans for the group include: )) Inline expanding the work of God in Robertson, the group intends to further establish a solid intercessory part-

nership with the hospital. The sick and hopeless have been neglected for a long time and the group intends to make a difference by ministering to the sick. )) The group has a vision of holding crusades throughout Robertson and surrounding areas. Much more impact will be made once the group has gathered enough instruments, a PA system, a van and materials to be given for free to the needy, such as bibles, clothing, food and the like. In a quest to reach out to as many souls as possible, the group has come up with a call centre open 24 hours a day for prayer and counselling. It is in this light that anybody can call or sms on the following numbers, 0 073 723 0954 or 076 975 5816 or 083 725 0199.

Afrigter van helde ’n boorling van Roberston ANNELDA GROOTBOOM

C

HRIS OCTOBER, ’n boorling van Robertson en ’n produk van die Langeberg Sekondêre Skool, is as die nuwe afrigter van die Suid-Afrikaanse Skolespan aangestel. October verdien elkeen van die verskeie prestasies op sy kerfstok, want ná net ’n maand in sy nuwe amp was daar die oorwinnings in die drie toetse teen Frankryk, Wallis en Engeland. October het in 1987 aan die Langeberg Sekondêre Skool gematrikuleer en in 1991 sy B.Sc. (Opvoedkunde) aan die Universiteit van WesKaapland (UWK) voltooi. Hoewel hy sy Bo- Chris October landkleure in landloop verwerf het, het hy ook rugby gespeel en het onder die hande van die voormalige Boland-losskakel Cyril Jones eers as losskakel en daarna as heelagter uitgeblink. October, wat al 21 jaar in die onderwys is, was in 2008 bestuurder van die SA skolespan met Patrick Lambie, Johan Goosen, Eben Etzebeth en Elton Jantjies in die span. In 2009 was hy hoofafrigter van die SA skolespan met Siya Kolisi, Sam Lane, Nizaam Carr in die span. October was hulpafrigter van die eerste o.16-hoëprestasie-oefengroep met Jan Serfontein, wat by die onlangse Junior Wêreldbeker as speler van die wedstryd aangewys is, in die groep. October was hoofafrigter van die o.

18-Cravenweekspan van 2009 tot 2011 wat as die nie-amptelike kampioene in 2009 gekroon is. Stormer-spelers soos Steven Kitshoff en Eben Etzebeth was deel van dié span. October was voorts direkteur van afrigting van 2009 af by die Bellville Rugbyklub waar Bolla Conradie en Quinton Davids lede was. Sy boodskap aan die jeug is: “Droom groot, wees doelgerig en werk hard, want dit sal jou help in jou strewe na sukses. “Gebruik elke geleentheid optimaal en toon karakter ten spyte van die uitdagings waardeur jy in die gesig gestaar word. Staan rotsvas vir dit waarin jy glo.” October sê sy huidige aanstelling bly vir hom ’n groot eer, al is dit die tweede keer dat hy dié pos beklee. Hy sê hy is die Suid- Afrikaanse Rugbyunie (Saru) innig dankbaar vir die geleentheid om saam met soveel talentvolle spelers te werk, asook teenoor sy Hemelse Vader, sy ouers, Mentoor en Dinah October, en skoonma, Gerty Stahl. Sy rolmodelle is Allen Williams, Alrigde Mercuur en John Booysen. Prof. Julian Smith was sy inspirasie en dit het gehelp dat hy bo sy omstandighede uitstyg, sê October. Hy is tans onderwyser aan die St. Andrew Sekondêre Skool in Elsiesrivier waar hy ook sportkoördineerder en rugbyafrigter is. October is getroud met Etvena. Hulle het twee dogters, Késha (6) en Fronté (16).
