HELDERVUE: POOL PARTY
Heroic 6yearold saves boy NIKITA SYLVESTER “God told me to do it.” These were the honest words of six-yearold Leric Smith (junior) after he saved a young boy from drowning. His father, Leric Smith (senior), said the incident occurred on Saturday 8 December while they were at a children’s pool party in Heldervue, Somerset West. Leric (Sr) said they saw a young boy, believed to be in Grade 2, playing on the steps in the pool. “He got out of the water, walked around the pool and then accidentally fell in at the deep end,” explained Leric (Sr). That’s when his son reacted spontaneously to save the boy.
“I saw him drowning so I ran to the pool, jumped in and pushed him up from the bottom to take a breath, and then pulled him to the side of the pool by his hand,” said a heroic Leric (Jr). His father said although the boy got quite a fright, he was doing fine. “I just think its awesome. “Our friends who saw what happened told us that it was so amazing to see this brave six-year-old boy jump into the pool without thinking twice.” He added that his son had saved the boy from drown-

ing before anyone even knew what was happening. Leric (Jr) said he is very happy that he could save the boy’s life. “I beat my dad by four years, as he also saved someone’s life when he was 10 years old,” said Leric (Jr) quite chuffed with himself. His father explained that Leric has been taking swimming classes for about a year and half. “It is incredibly important that you teach your kids how to swim and that they are comfortable in the water,” said Leric.
Egpaar met hande in hare ná ‘haasboer’ nie beloftes oor boerdery nakom JAMEY THOMAS
Hier staan Charl Hugo binne die kamp wat vir die hase bedoel was.
Ná weke se gewag het ’n bejaarde egpaar van Gordonsbaai uiteindelik hul hase gekry. Dít volg ná Charl (63) en Aletta Hugo (64) deur ’n plaaslike haasboer ingeloop is toe hulle op 11 Oktober op ’n advertensie in Die Burger reageer het. Die advertensie het ’n kursus in haasboerdery, met hase en hokke ingesluit, teen R4 000 aangebied. Volgens die Hugo’s het hulle ’n kontrak met die haasboer – wie se naam aan DistriksPos bekend is – aangegaan. Hulle het ’n handleiding en CD ontvang, en ook die belofte dat hulle oor ’n tydperk van tien dae vier hase sou ontvang. Hulle het voorts ooreengekom
dat as hulle ’n verdere R2 500 sou gee, hulle ’n totaal van 16 hase sou ontvang. Selfs die kamp vir die hase sou op hulle perseel opgerig word. Máár, geen van dié beloftes het gerealiseer nie en die Hugo’s was oortuig daarvan dat die haasboer met hul R6 500 verdwyn het. Dis eers toe hulle sowat ’n maand gelede die haasboer met die polisie gedreig het wat hulle skielik hase ontvang het. “Hy het sommer dieselfde middag ná ’n polisiebeampte hom gebel het om uit te vind waarmee hy besig is tien hase in ’n krat kom aflaai,” het Aletta gesê. Maar, volgens Charl beteken die hase vir hom eintlik weinig, aangesien die kamp waarin die hase moes bly nie behoorlik opgerig is
nie.“Die haasboer het een dag met ’n mannetjie hier aangekom en ietwat van ’n halwe kamp op my perseel opgesit.” Charl het tweedehandse sinkplate aangekoop en planke wat hy op sy perseel gehad het gebruik om die kamp te voltooi. Maar, die hase het almal ontsnap en weggehol. Volgens Charl het hy lank gewonder oor wat hy met die haasboer moet maak, maar het oplaas besef dat dit nie die moeite werd is nie. “Ek wil net ander mense waarsku om nie dieselfde fout te begaan nie,” het Charl gesê. Die plaaslike haasboer – wat na bewering ook talle ander mense ingeloop het – is bewus van al die aantygings teen hom, maar kon nie bereik word vir kommentaar nie.

VALS DOKUMENTE: DRUKTOERUSTING
Twee vas vir bedrog Die Somerset-Wes-polisie het op verskeie amptelike blanko-dokumente beslag gelê tydens ’n strooptog by ’n woonstel verlede week. Dit volg nadat die polisie inligting van verdagte bedrywighede by ’n woonstel in Seascape Mews ontvang het. ’n Lasbrief is bekom en die woonstel, waarin twee Nigeriese burgers woon, is Woensdag 5 Desember deursoek en verskeie vervalste dokumente is gevind. Volgens konst. Suzan Jantjies, woordvoerder van die Somerset-Wes-polisie,
sluit die lys van items wat gevind is amptelike briefhoofde van twee bekende banke asook amptelike regeringsdokumente in. “Ons het op bankstempels, dokumente van die departement van binnelandse sake wat gebruik word vir die druk van identiteitsdokumente sowel as geboorte- en doodsertifikate, beslag gelê. “Ons het ook kontant en ’n elektroniese masjien wat die dokumente druk, gevind,” het sy gesê. Jantjies het gesê die polisie se handelstak ondersoek ’n saak van bedrog. Butsha Mlilo (30) en Calvin Bekete (32) het
Vrydag 7 Desember in die SomersetWes-landdroshof verskyn. Die saak is vir nadere ondersoek uitgestel en hulle bly in aanhouding in die Pollsmoor-gevangenis. Na bewering is Mlilo en Bekete al voorheen op soortgelyke aanklagte in hegtenis geneem. Kol. Mary Ann Williams, stasiebevelvoerder, het haar dank teenoor die publiek uitgespreek vir die inligting wat ontvang is, sowel as die polisielede wat die inhegtenisneming uitgevoer het. Die polisie verwag dat nog in hegtenisnemings binnekort sal volg.

GB Police Forum reward business
HCW go beyond their call of duty
The Gordon’s Bay Community Police Forum (GB CPF) had their year-end meeting on 27 November, ending a very testing 2012 season. The forum took the opportunity to reward local businesses that played an important role in the phenomenal growth of the CPF Emergency Radio Network. The radio network celebrated their first year of existence last month and they now have four local security vehicles, two designated ambulances and two SAPS vehicles monitoring the channel responding to emergency calls, with the base of operations at the Gordon’s Bay Police station. According to Heyns de Waal, Radio Network Co-ordinator, GB Security was awarded by the CPF in May this year and that it was time to say thank you to the rest of their new sponsors. “With the community and the business sector working hand in hand with our SAPS, we will never stand alone in the fight against crime,” he said.
Awarded at the meeting were (from left) Wayne Martin (RFG Communication), capt. Kholisa Moshi (station commander at Gor don’s Bay SAPS), Franco Neumann (Spar Gordon’s Bay), Chris Stephens (CPF chairper son), Ernie Wobbe (Tiger Truck Spares), Howard Ross (Palm Tyres), Melt Mostert (Melts Tavern) with Keith Ingsund (Pick n Pay Gordon’s Bay), kneeling in front.
Desperate times call for desperate measures and with crime levels reaching unprecedented proportions in 2010, it became apparent that various levels of security were needed in order to complement our effective, but seriously understaffed police service.

Twee in hof ná hulle valslik ‘beroof’ is Twee mans van Kraaifontein het Vrydag (7 Desember) op aanklagte van onder meer regsverydeling in die Somerset-Wes-landdroshof verskyn. Luidens ’n polisieverklaring het die twee beskuldigdes, Stanley van As (38) en Gert Booysen (32) beweer dat hulle van R20 000, wat aan hul werkgewer behoort, beroof is. Die mans het beweer dat ’n onbekende voertuig hulle die vorige Woensdag omstreeks 16:30 van die pad gedwing het. Hulle het gesê dat hulle op die N2 gestop het, waarna twee gewapende mans op hulle afgekom het. Die bestuurder is toe glo uit die voertuig geruk waarna die gewapende mans met die geld op die vlug geslaan het. Hulle het daarna die voorval by die polisie aangemeld. Volgens konst. Suzan Jantjies, woordvoerder van die Somerset-Wes-polisie, is die hele voorval op nabygeleë kameras vasgelê. “Die polisie het die toneel besoek en die beeldmateriaal ondersoek. Daar is bevind dat die mans nooit beroof is nie. Hulle is in hegtenis geneem.” Jantjies wou egter om veiligheidsredes nie die presiese ligging van die kameras bekend maak nie. Van As en Booysen het later die geld se wegsteekplek aan die polisie uitgewys. ’n Bedrag van R20 000 is in ’n sak op ’n veld langs die N2 gevind. Hulle is van regsverydeling, meineed en diefstal aangekla. Hulle is uit op borgtog van R1 500 elk. Die saak is uitgestel vir nadere ondersoek.
Drie mans in hof ná rooftogte by besighede Drie mans het die afgelope Dinsdag in die Strand-landdroshof in verband met twee rooftogte by besighede verskyn. Luidens ’n polisieverklaring is die mans op Saterdag 1 Desember onder verdenking van ’n moontlike rooftog in hegtenis geneem. Volgens konst. Mbulelo Mafuna, woordvoerder van die Strand-polisie, het beamptes omstreeks 19:30 inligting opgevolg. Hulle het ’n verdagte voertuig in Hoofweg, voor Seven Eleven in Van der Stel, opgemerk. “Twee mans het in die voertuig gesit en twee vuurwapens is in hul besit gevind. Die beamptes het nog ’n derde man opgemerk wat van die toneel af weggehardloop het. Hulle het hom agterna gesit en hy het ook ’n vuurwapen gehad,” het hy gesê. Verdere ondersoek het bepaal dat die maroen Toyota Tazz waarin die mans gesit het, gesteel is. Hulle word ook verbind met ’n ander besigheid wat Donderdag 29 November in Hoofweg beroof is. Die beskuldigdes, Siphe Ndukumbini (33), Vusumzi Sitshongaye (26) en Dumisani Mxinwa (27), se volgende hofverskyning is op 10 Januarie 2013.

6 Distrikspos Town celebrates 50th light festival, holiday season 13 Desember, 2012
The annual lights festival in Somerset West once again kicked off with a bang as hundreds of Helderberg residents and beyond flocked to the Main Road. On Thursday 6 December visitors to the festival were entertained by the Hottentots-Holland brass band, drum majorette displays, Father Christmas as well as live performances by Maddy, Nicodémus Olivier and more. Mayor Patricia De Lille who had the honour of switching on the lights said that the Helderberg Lights Festival is one of the events that gives meaning to their commitment to building an inclusive city. “For the past 50 years, it has attracted individuals from diverse backgrounds – from Somerset West, Helderberg and surrounding areas, to commemorate the start of the festive season. This milestone makes this year’s celebration even more special.” She added that for the past 10 years the City of Cape Town has supported this event to ensure that this celebration becomes the highlight on the events calendar of the community.

Mom still heartbroken December 15 will mark the 10th year since the death of three youngsters from the Helderberg. Tamara (Tammy) van Dyk (18) of Strand, Willie Piek (21) and Edwin Geldenhuys both from Gordon’s Bay, died in a motor accident on the Sir Lowry’s Pass Road. The fourth occupant of the car, Mishka Sepp also from Gordon’s Bay died in hospital on 21 December. The girls who were best friends were both matriculants of Hottentots-Holland High School and were still awaiting their matric results. On the night of their death the four had allegedly been at the Firlands pub. The accident happened at about 04:00, Tammy van Dyk about a kilometer from the N2 intersection when the Toyota Corolla in which the youngsters were travelling collided head-on with a bakkie that was pulling a boat. The occupants of the bakkie, Coen van Deventer and a friend who were on their way
to Hermanus on a fishing trip, sustained minor injuries in the accident. Tammy’s mother Mary Woodward Marks says her daughter’s tragic death has left them heartbroken and with many unanswered questions. She would like to warn all teenagers to be vigilant. “I feel very serious about sending out a message to all matrics, parents and others about the dangers of alcohol consumption and driving a vehicle, or being a passenger. “The truth is that teenagers take risks. “This time of the year school leavers feel the need to jump, rather than walk cautiously into young adulthood, under the misguided belief that alcohol consumption and a steering wheel are the epitome of living freely without supervision,”says Woodward Marks. Woodward Marks adds that the cross erected next to the road where the accident occurred have been vandalised for the third time.

Quality naval officers “To provide quality naval officers through dynamic training,” is the mission statement of the SA Naval College. On Friday 7 December the naval college in Gordon’s Bay hosted their annual passing out parade of 67 well-trained young officers, of which 61 midshipmen are of the South African Navy and six of the Namibian Navy. “This parade is the culmination of the tire-
less efforts by well-disciplined and dedicated staff to achieve the objective and accomplish the task entrusted to us by Chief of the Navy,” as stated in the pamphlet handed out on arrival. Guests who attended the prestigious graduation event were treated to musical displays by the SA Navy Band as well as a precision drill display by the 2012 MTO1 Midshipmen followed by an awards ceremony.
Officers stand at ease as the passing out parade commences.

Mail EDITORIAL COMMENT
Think of your pet before you leave The summer holidays, considered an annual highlight for most people, have finally arrived. Throughout the year, people find themselves planning and saving for that big end-of-year holiday away with the family. But what about our four-legged family members who have to stay behind? What will happen to them when families spend weeks away from home? Each year the happiness and fun that accompany the holidays, are overshadowed by the horror stories of pets in distress, who were left to fend for themselves. In most cases, it’s usually the animal welfare organisations that fight for the rights of animals and are forced to come to their rescue. So before you embark on your well-deserved break, please ensure that your pets are taken care of. See our Pet’s Page (page 20) for advice.
’n Paar wenke vir die Strand se stadsvaders Nadat ek vir die eerste drie jaar wat ek die Argus Fietstoer – vanaf 1991 – gery het en altyd moes spook om gerieflike en bekostigbare verblyf in die Kaap te kry, het ek twee weke tyddeel by die Strand Pavilion gekoop. Vir die volgende vyftien jaar was die Strand as te ware my tweede tuiste vir twee weke van die jaar. Ek en my vrou het so verlief op die Helderberg geraak dat ons in 2008, na ons aftrede, SomersetWes toe verhuis het. Ons spandeer baie mooiweersdae op die Strand en net die volgende kommentaar. Iewers het die stadsvaders die plot verloor met die Strand se Kusweg. Die kwessie van die pier is al tot vervelens toe bespreek en die besluit is maklik. Herbou die pier of breek hom af. Tans is dit ’n oogseer en baie gevaarlike struktuur. Die saak wat ek eintlik wil opper is die onooglike informele tentstalletjies waar allerhande goedere gesmous word, die een net ’n duplikasie van die volgende een. Kan die stadsvaders nie maar by Hermanus gaan kers opsteek om te sien hoe aantreklike strukture vir ’n vlooimark en kunssmouse opgerig kan word nie? Daardie hele parkeerarea kan in ’n kosmopolitaanse area met straatkafeetjies ontwikkel word. Finansiële implikasies sal daar seersekerlik wees, maar waar daar ’n wil is, is daar ’n weg. Die ontwikkelings by Big Bay by Bloubergstrand is ook ’n sprekende voorbeeld van deeglike beplanning om toerisme te bevorder, ook Kampsbaai. Die Strand beskik oor kilometers wit strande, maar kan nie eers daarin slag om Blouvlagstatus te verkry nie.

Where was the support for our local Carols by Candlelight? People of Gordon’s Bay, you do not know what you missed on the night of Wednesday 28 November. In spite of the howling South Easter, the annual Carols by Candlelight was held at the Naval Base, preceded by the Sunset parade. I have been to the Carols for eight years and each time have been impressed by the amount of people attending, and also by the organisation of the event by the Lions club and the staff of the base. However, I was so disappointed to note that the numbers had dropped considerably this year. The tradition was discontinued for the last two years, but reintro-
duced again this year. It was advertised on posters around the village and also in your monthly magazine. Because of the inclement weather the event was relocated to the main hall, so the candles were able to keep burning. The enthusiasm of the cadets was amazing as they sang their hearts out, not only when it was their turn to sing to us as a choir, but also during the singing of the Carols themselves. The Navy Band travels all the way from Simon’s Town to accompany the carol singing and this year, as always, they were so professional. At the end of the concert, Father
Christmas arrived to give all the little ones a gift. He always seems to know when to come. A lot of time and trouble was taken to ensure that the evening was special for all who attended So please, to all the residents of our little village, make an effort to support our very own piece of the Navy next year. I know of a number of residents who attend the Carol concert at Vergelegen regardless of the weather, so perhaps they will consider joining us at our celebration next year? Let us make a new motto for “The Bay in the Mountains,” Local is Lekker!

Wat van ’n pluimpie vir die konstruksiewerk in Disaweg? Het julle al vandag in Disaweg gery? Ek hoop van harte dat al die mense wat DistriksPos geskakel het om te kla; die mense wat die kontrakteur en sy werkers gevloek het; mense wat die een-rigting bloot ignoreer het en so die werkers sowel
as die ander lede van die publiek se lewens in gevaar gestel het; gaan ook nou die moeite doen om dankie te sê vir al die harde werk van die kontrakteur en sy mense. Glo my dit was nie ’n maklike projek nie, maar die kontrakteur het dit gedoen so vinnig as moont-
lik, met (al het die mense nie so gedink nie) die minste ongerief vir die huiseienaars en sonder enige ernstige ongelukke. Ek voel net die konstruksiemaatskappy moet ’n pluimpie kry vir die werk wat hulle in Disaweg gedoen het.

Sincerest condolences from Ward 84 to family of wind victim The tragic death of a nine-year-old at The Silver Oaks Lodge in Somerset West, after being struck by a falling tree, came as a shock to us all. On 30 November a tree fell over due to strong winds experienced in Cape Town during the course of last week. The tree, with its roots
on private property, fell outside of The City of Cape Town’s auspices. Even though The City of Cape Town have various measures in place, including pruning programmes for trees on public property, this sometimes is not sufficient to prevent injury and dam-
age against the forces of Mother Nature. I want to extend my sincerest condolences and offer my fullhearted support to the family members of the child involved.

Surfers enter the sea to paddle out in honour of Taryn. but the wind blew it away. Now we have written your name on our hearts and there forever it will stay.” From Barnaby, Lynn, Tara-Lynn and Kayla Brinkworth. Taryn’s friend Penny Stemmet: “Taryn was an amazing person in her own right. No words can justify all the joy that she brought into so many
people’s lives. This is one extraordinary woman that we can all aspire to be like. We know you are at peace in heaven and watching over us. You will forever be in our hearts.” Surfers, family and friends gathered at Strand beach on Saturday 8 December for a paddle-out procession in honour of Taryn.
THE PROFESSIONAL NURSERYMEN WHO CARE
Raised in the Helderberg, Taryn attended Somerset Primary and Hottentots-Holland High School (head girl). Taryn and Shane opened the first Billabong Surf Shop outside of Jeffrey’s Bay in the Somerset Mall, whereafter they became owners of Natural Energy Surf Shop in Strand. Taryn’s friend Lynn Brinkworth said that Taryn helped many surfers in the community pursue their careers and also travel abroad representing South Africa. “She helped secure an awesome sponsor for the Boland junior team this year which covered all their costs up to Port Elizabeth. Although she was not part of the Boland committee she was still actively involved,” said Lynn. Shane: “She was an inspiration to us all and the water was her life. She always said, ‘winners never quit and quitters never win’”. On 24 November Sue Steenkamp, Gillian Laubser and many others hosted a party for Taryn to celebrate love, Taryn Pratt life and friendship. “Taryn had the time of her life that evening and even then she only had words of encouragement and said we must live life each day to the fullest. That was Taryn, never complained, not even when she was feeling ill,” said Lynn. A poem: “We wrote your name in the sand, but the waves washed it away. Then we wrote it in the sky,

10 Distrikspos Reg vir nuwe uitdagings
13 Desember, 2012
ILLANA FRANTZ Om die skoene van ’n leraar wat ’n gemeente vir 37 jaar gelei het te moet volstaan, sit nie sommer in enigeen se broek nie. Maar dié uitdaging skrik glad nie vir ds. Jetro Cloete, die Verenigende Gereformeerde Kerk, Strand se nuwe leraar af nie. Inteendeel, hy sien uit daarna. Ds. Cloete het die preekstoel in Oktober vanjaar betree nadat ds. Mark Arendse vroeër vanjaar afgetree het. Cloete is in 1979 in Windhoek, Namibië gebore. In 1997 het die onder-hoofseun aan Hoërskool Mariental matrikuleer. Op skool was hy ’n kranige atleet, veral in atletiek-items soos 10 000 m-langafstande. Hy meen dit het hom deursettingsvermoë geleer en dié eienskap het later in sy lewe baie handig te pas gekom. Ná skool het ds. Cloete Teologie aan die Universiteit van Wes-Kaapland Ds. Jetro Cloete studeer waarna hul in 2000 na die Universiteit van Stellenbosch verplaas is. Sy lys van kwalifikasies sluit in ’n BTh-graad in 2002, ’n MDiv in 2003, lisensiaat in Teologie in 2004 en ’n nagraadse onderwys diploma in 2005. Sy ander akademiese doelwitte sluit in om die honneursgraad in opvoedkundige sielkunde te voltooi en ook om ’n doktorsgraad agter sy naam te hê teen die ouder-
dom van 40. “Waar is dít?” vertel hy was sy eerste reaksie toe hy die roeping vir die bediening in Kommegas, Namakwaland ontvang het. In Januarie 2006 is hy hier bevestig. “Op die oog af sou enige mens neersien op Kommegas, maar daar het ek rykdom ontdek. Anders as die diamantvelde daar rondom, het ek gevind dat die mense self die skatte is,” sê hy. Hier het hy drie maande kort van sewe jaar die gemeente bedien. Op 20 Oktober vanjaar is ds. Cloete by die huidige gemeente verwelkom en hy beskryf dit as ’n “hartlike ontvangs”. “Ek voel ons het sommer van dag een af geclick. Ds. Arendse het ’n goeie fondasie gelê en ek kan net daarop opbou.” Een van sy doelwitte vir nie net die gemeente nie, maar ook vir die gemeenskap is om siele te wen. Ds. Cloete meen die bogenoemde is die fokuspunt, waarna al die ander fasette in plek sal val. Van die fasette waarop hy wil fokus sluit in: gesinsontwikkeling, verligting van armoede, misdaad-bekamping, geweld en middelafhanklikheid. “Die uitdaging is om brûe te bou en netwerke te vorm om ’n verskil op ’n gemeenskaplike vlak in mense se lewe te maak. “Dis ’n doelwit wat nie te groot of te klein is nie. Dit is net genoeg om my ’n leeftyd besig te hou.”
Children receive storybook Bibles On Friday 7 December, 226 children of The Ark City of Refuge Christian School in Faure each received their own storybook Bible as part of the one million Bibles for one million children-project of Christian Literature Fund (CLF). The Ark is an educational ministry, focusing on the holistic development of the child in a Christian environment. The school seeks to educate the children of addicts, the destitute and homeless undergoing rehabilitation at the school. Children between the age of 7 and 15 each received a storybook Bible and a lollipop from the staff of CLF. CLF and Lux Verbi published the Children of God storybook Bible in July 2010 and with that kicked off the one million Bibles for one million children-project. The Bibles given to the children of the Ark, was made possible by a golf day fund raiser held in September. Anyone wanting to give a child their own storybook Bible this Christmas, contact CLF at 021 873 6964 or visit www.clf.co.za.

14 Distrikspos Christmas treats for children
13 Desember, 2012
The children of Chris Nissan Park were once again treated to a fun-filled day at their annual Christmas party hosted by Church Street Methodist Church in Somerset West. The initiative first came about in 1999 when one of the church’s organisations, 1st Somerset West Girls’ Brigade, decided to host the Christmas party as one of their outreach missions. Since 2008, the church got involved and now share the respon-

sibility which has become a highlighted event on their social calendar. This past Saturday (8 December) was no different than previous years with fun and laughter all the way. The approximate amount of 130 children from ages 4 – 10 were treated to games, sports, arts and crafts, face painting, jumping castles, hamburgers, ice creams and party packets. The day ended on a high note but not before Father Christmas arrived to hand out gifts to all the children. “This is always the highlight each year to see the joy on the faces of the little ones. We are always reminded that although the wall of our church has collapsed, our service continues,” said one of the organisers, Marina Sylvester. The church would like to thank the principal and school governing body of Somerset Primary School who without hesitation agreed to open their facilities for this years function. As well as all the volunteers who put in the time and effort to make the party a memorable one.

Carnival festivities in Bright Street The third annual Bright Street Carnival that took place on Saturday 8 December was once again a great success. Visitors to the carnival were treated to entertainment and activities for the whole family to enjoy. The children had fun decorating their own cupcakes, making jewellery, having their faces painted, riding the mechanical rodeo bull as well as watching the clowns and magicians perform crazy stunts. Visitors were spoiled for choice with the 40 stalls in the market place and many different food stands. The wine route was also quite a hit as various wine estates showcased their finest. The evening’s fun, enjoyable atmosphere was kept at a high with the many live artists and bands who performed all along Bright Street through the night. The purpose of the Bright Street Carnival is to highlight the Somerset West area, to create a family

Children and the Constitution
Constitutional Kids, a book that breaks down the Constitution in an easily understandable manner for children, was officially launched on Saturday 1 December.
Opskop for good course Opskop, a community carnival and music festival in aid of a good cause, was successfully held at Southey’s Vines in Somerset West recently. The event was made up of a bit of everything, from entertainment for the kids, a music festival by talented musicians to food stalls with a coffee lounge and a beer garden. The beneficiary of the festival was Trade-mark, a local job creation NGO that connects the best tradespeople in the townships with those who require their services. To find out more about Trademark and to get into contact with this organisation, visit www.trade-mark.co.za.

This book is the brainchild of Somerset West resident Lee-Anne Flack (28), who is also a law student at Stellenbosch University. The idea to write this book came to Lee-Anne when she did volunteer work in Nyanga and at the Food for Life school and orphanage in Vrindavan, India. According to Marida Flack, LeeAnne’s mother, the launch was a great success and it was attended by hordes of children. “All went really well with the launch. It’s a day that the kids will remember for a long time. It was filled loads fun.” She added that many of the children who attended came from children’s homes and are also known to Lee-Anne from her days volunteering in Nyanga. The children who attended were spoiled with rock climbing, canoeing, quad-biking, swimming, jumping castles, water slides, pony rides, face painting and loads more. The book is available at Vergelegen Spar in Rome Glen or phone Marida on 071 106 2247 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

18 Distrikspos Celebrating a decade of song
13 Desember, 2012
It’s been a decade since Southern Gypsey Queen (SGQ) hit the road with nothing more than a demo CD and barely enough fuel to get from town to town. The band remember those days fondly, despite the fact that they were quite challenging. But Paul Wilson (drums), Tammy Wilson (bass and vocal) and Gareth Wilson (guitars) succeeded in igniting a new spark in rock. All their albums – Sweet Voodoo, Rise Up, Be the Lion, Delusions of Grandeur – have all been major successes. In the last two years, SGQ have also been touring with Albert Frost
and performing a collaborative show affectionately known as “Queens of the Frost Age”. Due to the success of these tours, SGQ and Albert recorded an album together under a new name. For their anniversary tour, the band recorded Stand up Again, a new track available as a free download at www.gevaaalik.com. This is the band’s way of saying thanks to the fans for all the support. As part of their tour, they will perform at Bertie’s Moorings in Gordon’s Bay on Friday 14 December. The show starts at 21:00 and entrance is free.

He is very friendly and will come if you call. He is not familiar with the area. If you see this cat, please contact Lost and Found Pets Helderberg on 0 079 874 0744.
Keep your pets safe With the holidays upon us, it is important to ensure that your pets are safe and sound. There is nothing better than to take immediate action to decrease the chances of anything bad happening to your beloved pet. And hereâ€™s how: ) Micro-chip your dog. In this way the dog and its owner can be identified if a pet is lost and found by animal organisations, shelters or other authorities. ) Provide a collar with a tag. If your dog can tolerate wearing a collar, put a tag on it â€“ including its name and a phone number. ) Repair escape routes around your home.
This means repairing any loose boards and holes in fencing to prevent an escape. ) Secure gates and doors. Fit your gates and doors with springs so that once it opens it would close automatically within a few seconds. This can limit the chances of the dog escaping. If a gate can be padlocked, then do so, as this can avoid strangers from entering and stealing your pet or letting it loose. ) Take a clear identification photo of your dog. Also take note of any distinctive markings or scars. Last but not least, should your pet go missing phone all animal welfare organisations immediately. Also notify Lost and Found Pets Helderberg by phoning 079 874 0744.
Lost pets waiting to be reunited with owners These animals are waiting in anticipation to be reunited with their owners. If you recognise one of these pets, please contact Lost and Found Pets Helderberg on 0 079 874 0744. Proof of ownership will be required before you can claim your animal.

I would like to apologise to friends of my late, eldest brother, Ivan, who were not informed of the day, time and place of his cremation service. I was not involved with the arrangements and for personal reasons did not attend the service, which took place at a cousin's home in the Strand on Saturday, Nov 10. I regret that some of you did not get the chance to bid him farewell, but wish to thank you for having been a part of his life at some stage or another. What his last thoughts were before he took his own life on Oct 29, we shall never know, but let us grant him eternal rest after the turmoil that drove him to such drastic measures. Presently I am still too distraugt to receive or answer calls, but SMS's may be sent to 078 257 0691 and I'll reply in due course. Season's greetings to you all.
BULMER - LEE 13/02/1976 20/12/2007 It's your 5th year away from us Lee. As life goes on without you, days turn into years. It sure holds pleasant memories & silent tears. You are forever in our hearts and memories. Mom, Andrew also Tracey & Jonathan in Germany.

In support of International Disability Day, celebrated on 3 December this year, the Senecio SCI (spinal cord injury) group of Strand presented an awareness campaign at the Broadway Mall on 1 December. Members of the group showed able bodied people how disabled people can live a full life even if they are wheelchair-bound. Artist Eben Heuvel astounded curious onlookers when he demonstrated how he paints with his mouth. The Strand Blow-dart Club demonstrated “darts-with-a-difference” – blowing darts at the board instead of throwing. Disabled DJ Zavia Robertson and Steaward Kriel entertained shoppers with live entertainment. On the day able bodied volunteers were challenged to use a wheelchair to roll over a garden hosepipe, reverse through two parked cars, carry a glass of water in one hand while rolling the wheelchair for a distance of a few metres, and finally go down and up the fairly steep ramp in front of the shopping centre. They went home with renewed respect for the daily challenges of wheelchair users. The wheelchair users did an informal assessment of the accessibility of the mall and found that, apart from a few shops that were too over-stocked to allow wheelchair access, the mall was found to be adequately accessible. Senecio would like to thank the management of the Broadway Mall for being able to host the event there. They would also like to thank the public for their generous support. For more information on Senecio visit www.senecio.org.za

The southeaster livens up the bay for anglers This is the time of the year our local waters usually warm up but most boating and shore fishing is curtailed by the continuous southeast and south winds. During the weekend there were a number of small boats and kayaks that took the gap and fished inside the Poort and surrounding reefs for a few kob and geelbek. Rod men that fished off Blake’s and Harmony reefs caught a few kob and dassie. Spinner men from Blake’s beach – despite the wind – landed a few small elf and returned one or two undersized garrick (Leervis) after some hard work. These crack spinner men uses the quieter spells to get in some real practice casting. News from Simon’s Town side was that the
wind kept most professionals from going out. The only news was of one professional braving the southeaster to fish for snoek in Buffel’s bay. Only sixty fish were boated. The snoek is very scarce at the moment and it fetches R50 at the wharf. Local anglers and visitors may still experience quite a bit of southeaster the weekend. Rod anglers should concentrate on fishing at Milbay beach during the low and rising tides. Blake’s beach is ideal for two hours before high tide until two hours of drop tide. Spinning in the early morning and afternoon till dark is an excellent option. Blake’s during the evening and after dark is ideal for bait fishing for elf, kob and geelbek and the odd dassie or white stump are always about. Fresh chokka and pilchard often produce
one or two kob and geelbek if the bait is floated 10 cm from the bottom. Spinning with a multiplier reel and normal length rods, a number 10 or 22 spinner with 3/0 treble hooks, are usually successful. The use of tin spinners that are supplied and made by Steve Champion in many shapes and sizes are also excellent. These lures can be bought at Somerset Tackle at Gants Centre who also has a large range of tackle and bait available. Even rod men with an ear to the ground can experience and be surprised with the geelbek “diks” off the reefs. Locals or visi-
tors interested in a fish trip with Earl Fenwick – who is holidaying at Struisbaai where there is a run of geelbek, yellow tail and a few kob on the Agulhas bank – can contact Earl at 082 557 0639 for a fishing trip (weather permitting). It is tragic that our visitors once again have to see the dilapidated condition of our jetty. The debacle is now in its eleventh year! A positive though is the large anti-alcohol sign which seems to be having an effect. For all your reel repairs and services, phone Art on 021 854 3831.

Downwind Junkie Jamii paddles in honour of a friend The Strand Downwind Junkies of the Strand Surf Lifesaving Club held the Daniel Conradie Memorial Surfski Race this past Saturday. Instead of the predicted southerly wind, which provides a world-class downwind paddle of 22 km from Rooi Els to Strand, the Junkies Captain Herbert Conradie opted to make use of the prevailing SE winds to set a unique course. With a Gordon’s Bay start heading towards Steenbrass Point a turning point, around the Koei & Kalf Rock, some 3 km along the cliff and then looped back to Gordon’s Bay with another turn around a rock off the Main Beach with an anticipated downwind leg to the Lifesaving Club that allowed flat water and technical wave-assisted paddling totalling 14,85 km. Navigation was tricky for the leading

ror to round the mussel covered rock first, pausing briefly with the pursuit bunch in an attempt to call back the AWOL paddlers, but once Daantjie Malan, Stefan du Toit and doubles Greg Schrenier/Johan van Rooyen rounded the rock the race was back on. The backline reefs off Greenways and the Poort provide a great opportunity for paddlers to gain advantage and Jamii unsighted of the others used his wave knowledge to cross the line victorious in 1:13:54 averaging 12 km/h. The prize giving was sponsored by Kyle Mahood of Southern Swells. Jamii said: “I never knew Daniel but if he was anything like Herbert he must be a true champion! I feel honoured to be holding this trophy in his memory and wish to dedicate my paddle today to Taryn Pratt who past away last weekend.

GBay yachtsmen to St Helena The Governor’s Cup yacht race is a 1 700 nautical mile ocean race starting from False Bay Yacht Club in Simonstown and ending in Jamestown on the remote St Helena Island. This year’s race starts on Saturday 22 December and the first yachts are expected to arive in Jamestown from 31 December. The race is jointly organised by the False Bay Yacht Club and the St Helena Yacht Club. GBYC will be represented by Seaboard, a
Stadt 34 foot monohull and Sandpiper 2, a 40 foot Scape catamaran. Seaboard is owned by Hennie du Plessis and will be skippered by Jan Delport. Sandpiper 2 is owned by Abri Erasmus and will be skippered by Paul Tanner assisted by fellow GBYC crew members Gary Evans, Johan (Blackie) Swart, Luan Fourie and Neville Cooper. There are 19 confirmed entries for the race this year with approximately 90 crew members participating. The Governor’s Cup is usually a pleasant down-wind sail once around Cape Point. From then on the fleet should encounter great blue
water sailing in warm conditions while surfing the legendary Atlantic Oceans swells. The organisers claim that it is not only the prospects of great sailing that attracts so many entrants, but also the chance to visit on the remote St Helena Island. At present the only way to get to and from the Island is by sea. An airport is currently being built on the island, but is only expected to be operational from 2015. After a short stay on the island most of the crew and some of the yachts will return to Cape Town on board the RMS St Helena – a 700 ton passenger/cargo ship. Sandpiper 2 will return to Gordon’s Bay by cargo ship.
