SOMERSETWES: BELLONASTRAATINWONERS IN OPSTAND
Plakkers bedreig buurt DALEEN FOUCHÉ Inwoners van ’n deftige woonbuurt in Somerset-Wes leef in vrees vir die plakkers wat ’n verlate en vervalle huis in Andries Pretoriusstraat beset. Die huis word sedert 2010 verwaarloos toe dit onwettig op ’n veiling verkoop is en ’n dispuut oor die eienaarskap ontstaan het (“Terror lurking in Bellona Street”, DistriksPos, 28 Oktober 2010). Inwoners sê die situasie het egter oor die afgelope drie jaar “hand uit geruk”. Die inwoners van Bellonastraat (bure van dié huis), wat anoniem wou bly, sê daar was al drie keer ’n brand in die huis, dit word gebruik vir kriminele aktiwiteite soos dwelmgebruik en prostitusie, en het bygedra tot ’n reusetoename in inbrake in die buurt. “Daar word elke nag vure in die huis gemaak en als word weggedra.” Die gebou is ook reeds in 2010 as ’n gesondheidsrisiko deur die Stad Kaapstad verklaar en die eienaars is skriftelik vermaan om herstelwerk aan die huis aan te bring. Die huis is volgens inwoners in die buurt ’n historiese huis wat in 1926 gebou is. Inwoners vertel hoe hul elke beweging dopgehou word deur plakkers, wat bo-op die vervalle motorhuisdak klim en die buurt van daar af bespied. Een inwoner vertel hoe prostitute aan sy deur klop en geld eis omdat hy hulle glo geld skuld vir hul dienste. Tydens ’n besoek aan die perseel het die DistriksPos verskeie plak-
kers teëgekom. Een inwoner se frustrasie loop so hoog dat hy ’n vertrek aan die brand gesteek het, nadat hy ’n man met ’n tikpyp uit die vervalle kamer verjaag het. Die inwoners sê hulle is raadop met die toedrag van sake en voel asof hul vertoë aan die eienaar, polisie en stadsraad op dowe ore val, terwyl hul veiligheid bedreig word. “Moet daar eers iemand vermoor word voordat iets gedoen word?” vra ’n inwoner. Stuart Pringle, raadslid vir die gebied, sê die gebou is ’n prioriteit vir die Stad Kaapstad se Probleemgebou-eenheid. Hy sê die saak is tans op die hofrol, nadat die Stad Kaapstad die eienaar gedagvaar het vir uitstaande gelde om die eiendom te omhein en ook vir agterstallige munisipale rekeninge. Die Stad Kaapstad het ’n hek om die eiendom opgerig, wat herhaaldelik deur ’n plaaslike inwoner herstel is wanneer dit deur plakkers verwoes is. Die eienaarskap van die vervalle huis is ook weer eens onder soeklig nadat die maatskappy wat die huis besit, gederegistreer is. Pringle sê volgens die Stad Kaapstad se prokureurs lê die verantwoordelikheid van die gebou nou by die departement van openbare werke. ’n Plaaslike prokureur wat volgens die inwoners die eienaars van die huis verteenwoordig, kon met herhaaldelike oproepe na sy kantoor nie bereik word nie. Sover die inwoners se kennis strek, is die dispuut oor die eienaarskap afgehandel, maar ’n nuwe hofstryd woed tans tussen die partye om skadevergoeding.
Die bure van die verlate huis in Andries Pretoriusstraat, gaan stel ondersoek by die huis in. Ver skeie plakkers is tydens die be soek uit die huis verjaag deur die bure, wat vrees vir die vei ligheid van hul families.

Protesters intimidate H’berg construction workers DELIAH BRINKHUIS The ongoing constructionworker strike led by the South African Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors (Safsec) which started last Monday is still disrupting the Helderberg. Protesters are spreading fear in the Lwandle area by preventing workers from exiting the area. The Lwandle Police said that they have been patrolling the area and have been on stand-by at various exit points, including the ones on the corner of the N2 and Hlathi Drive, Vulindlela Road as well as the corner of Vulindlela and Broadlands roads, Onverwacht Road and the railwayline behind Asanda Village. A number of employers have
told the DistrictMail that their employees have been unable to come to work.Violence erupted last week between protesters and residents and it was reported that a man had been stabbed. This week more residents from other areas of the Helderberg have reported that their employees have been prevented from coming to work. On Tuesday a Somerset West resident who employs a man from Lwandle as a gardener, said she had received a phone call from him, saying that he was not allowed to leave the area. The woman said she went to the exit point at the railway line behind Asanda Village and was told by protesters that she had to provide a letter confirming that the man was indeed a gardener and

not a construction worker. Another Somerset West resident, employed at a local nursery, said her employer had been assaulted last Tuesday by a protester when he had dropped off workers. She said five of their workers who live in Lwandle were prevented from coming to work in the days thereafter. Lwandle Police spokesperson Const Mthokozisi Gama said no arrests have been made, but that they are investigating several cases of assault and theft. Gama said protesters target men on their way to and from work. He said two cases of public violence are also being investigated. Anyone with information that can aid their investigation can phone the Lwandle detective services on 021 845 2060.

Flinkdinker fnuik inbreker ILLANA FRANTZ
Die wit Isuzubakkie het Dinsdag langs die Lourensrivier in die modder vasgeval. Daar word vermoed die bande sou in die rivier gestort geword het.
‘Storter’ kom sy moses teë ILLANA FRANTZ Twee mans wat vermoedelik motorbande in die Lourensrivier wou stort, het hul rieme styf geloop toe hul bakkie in die modder langs die rivier vasgeval het. Dié prentjie het hom Dinsdag (3 September) langs Victoriastraat in Somerset-Wes afgespeel. Volgens Martin Geldenhuys, lid van die plaaslike buurtwag, het hy dié betrokke oggend omstreeks 08:00 met sy honde gestap. Hy het twee mans by ’n wit Isuzu-bakkie gesien wat vol motorbande gepak was. “Ek het hulle gevra wat hulle daar maak. Hulle het gesê dat hulle van Blackheath is en hulle probeer die bestuurder van die bakkie uit die modder help. Die bestuurder was glo weg om te gaan hulp soek.” Geldenhuys het egter nie die storie geglo nie en het toe die polisie en wetstoepassers gebel. Hy sê hy het snuf in die neus gekry omdat hy sowat ’n maand gelede ook motorbande in die rivier gesien het. Die mans het toe kort daarna die pad gevat en die “bestuurder” het ook
nooit sy verskyning gemaak nie. Geldenhuys sê sy grootste bekommernis met sulke aangeleenthede is die natuur. “Die rivier is ’n beskermde gebied en bande beskadig die rivier want dit is iets wat nooit opgebreek word nie.” Volgens Richard Bosman, uitvoerende direkteur van veiligheid en sekuriteit van die Stad Kaapstad, het wetstoepassers op die bakkie beslag gelê. “Die voertuig se registrasienommer en lisensiebewys stem nie ooreen nie en die voertuig se wettige eienaar kon dus nie opgespoor word sodat verdere stappe geneem kan word nie. Die saak word ondersoek.” Mense wat van storting aangekla word, sal in hegtenis geneem word en in die hof moet verskyn. Indien die verdagte skuldig bevind word, kan groot boetes opgelê word. Dit sluit in R2 500 vir storting en ook dan ’n addisionele koste van tussen R5 000 en R10 000 na afloop van die hofsaak vir administrasiekoste en ook om hul voertuie terug te kry. Insidente van storting kan by die Stad se afdeling vir veiligheid en sekuriteit by 021 596 1999 rapporteer word.

’n Poging tot huisbraak is gefnuik deur ’n vrou wat flink gedink het deurdat sy ’n kombers oor ’n vermeende dief se kop gegooi en hom oorrompel het. Die voorval het hom omstreeks 03:00 op 27 Augustus in Nomzamo afgespeel toe ’n vrou deur ’n inbreker wakker gemaak is. Sy het opgestaan en ’n man met ’n mes in haar sitkamer sien staan. Sy het geskree en so haar huismaat laat wakker skrik. Die tweede vrou het ’n kombers gevat, die vermeende dief van agter bekruip en dit oor sy kop gegooi. ’n Stoeiery het ontstaan, maar die verdagte het losgekom en weggehardloop. Sy mes het agtergebly. Dié voorval is Maandag in die Strandlanddroshof aangehoor tydens die aansoek om borgtog van die verdagte, Makhayezi Magotla (24). Volgens die staat se getuie, speurkonstabel Siphiwo Nteta wat die saak ondersoek, sou dit beter wees om nie borgtog toe te staan nie, uit vrees dat die gemeenskap die beskuldigde te lyf sou gaan. Nteta het getuig dat Magotla later dieselfde dag danksy die vroue se goeie beskrywing in hegtenis geneem is. Staatsaanklaer Clement Abrahams het gesê in die belang van geregtigheid behoort die beskuldigde nie op borgtog vrygelaat te word nie. “Dit is ’n ernstige misdryf wat erger kon gewees het.” Abrahams was besorg oor die veiligheid van die twee vroue, indien die beskuldigde sou besluit om na die huis terug te keer. Landdros Karen Scheepers het gesê die gebied ly onder huisbrake en het die aansoek om borgtog afgekeur.
4 DistrictMail Rewarding life as NSRI volunteer
12 September, 2013
DALEEN FOUCHÉ He sits back in his chair, stares out at the ocean and takes a breath before answering. “I do remember my first rescue.” Nigel Pepperell who is now the station commander of the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) at the Gordon’s Bay Station 9, relates how his first rescue was also his first experience with tragedy and that the occupant of a car, that drove off a cliff, had died. But Nigel says even this tragedy did not deter him from staying on as an NSRI volunteer. He fondly remembers when he decided to follow a career at sea. He was a 39-year old accountant who just moved from Gauteng and was ready for a big change. Nigel says his love for the ocean and a need to give back to the community made the NSRI an obvious choice for him. Now, after 25 years of service, Nigel is preparing to step down next year. He is currently ensuring that he leaves a well-oiled machine behind. He says the two big challenges fac-
Nigel Pepperell at the NSRI Gordon’s Bay station. PHOTO: DALEEN FOUCHÉ ing an NSRI station commander, are to ensure there are enough trained volunteers to not only keep the station running, but to ensure there are backup volunteers with adequate training. The other big challenge, he says, is to ensure there is adequate funding for the station to be operational and ready to face any emergency. During his years of service Nigel had many memorable moments and remembers how the crew once helped a fisherman to catch a “decent size” kob that snapped the fishing line. In return, the fisherman gave a gener-
ous donation to the NSRI. But there were also more “traumatic” incidents. Nigel says one such incident was when the paddle ski club paddled from Macassar to Gordon’s Bay. When the paddlers reached Gordon’s Bay, one paddler was missing. Nigel says a search operation that included four helicopters was launched and as the day was drawing to a close and the search was to be called off, the paddler was spotted and rescued. He said it was incredible to see the crew work together, comfort and encourage the family of the paddler who was missing at sea. Nigel describes the feeling of saving a life as “humbling”. “When it comes to saving a life, it does not matter whether you’re rich, poor or even human, as the NSRI also tries to save the lives of marine animals.” Nigel’s love for animals is apparent in his living arrangements which is shared with his two dogs, four cats and cockatiel. He’s an accomplished businessman and is co-owner of a company that makes vinegar. His daily routine includes getting up at 04:00 to go jogging with his Dalmation and his favourite activity is cooking.
Verdagtes in Strand gevang met perlemoen Twee mans (32 en 34) is die afgelope Dinsdag in hegtenis geneem vir die besit en vervoer van perlemoen. Luidens ’n polisieverklaring het polisiebeamptes gedurende ’n roetine voertuiginspeksie ’n verdagte
blou Foton-bakkie opgemerk. Beamptes het omstreeks 20:30 die bakkie op die hoek van die N2 en Lourensweg afgetrek en deursoek. Altesaam 25 sakke perlemoen ter waarde van R562 000 is gekonfis-
keer. Volgens konst. Mbulelo Mafuna, woordvoerder van die Strand-polisie, is die saak na die provinsiale perlemoen-ondersoekspan verwys vir verdere ondersoek.

Stroke support in dire straits DALEEN FOUCHÉ A local non-profit organisation (NPO) doing crucial work among stroke patients, is on the brink of closing its doors if financial help is not forthcoming. The Helderberg Stroke Support Group (HSSG) has provided support and rehabilitation to countless stroke patients throughout its 20 year of existence, but is now facing financial woes. Judy Cawood, treasurer of the HSSG, told the DistrictMail that the need for the services which the stroke support group provide is “massive”. “According to a local physician, there are up to 40 stroke patients per month at the local hospitals.” Cawood said there is a worldwide trend that strokes are becoming more prevalent, due to the rise in lifestyle diseases like diabetes and obesity. The HSSG currently hosts five weekly support meetings in various areas of the Helderberg, as well as a weekly speech class. Cawood especially asked the local businesses to support the HSSG with funding. Marian Engelbrecht, chairperson of the HSSG, said the organisation needs about R23 000 per month to survive. Expenses include transport costs for stroke patients, their office rent and the cost of a community rehabilitation coordinatior (CRC), to name but a few. Engelbrecht said the main reasons for the financial shortcomings, is the lack of funding from Lotto and corporate businesses. HSSG applied

With her are district governor Mike Ochse and Marc Stuyck (past president of Strand Rotary Club). PHOTO: JAMEY THOMAS for Lotto funding in November 2012, but has not received any feedback. Engelbrecht added that corporate businesses used to donate money a lot easier, but the current economic climate has changed that. Nkosayesa Mpanga, a Lwandle resident who suffered a stroke, said he would not be the independent person he is today if it were not for the help of the HSSG. He said the HSSG is the only organisation that helps local stroke patients, especially in areas like Lwandle and Nomzamo, adding that in his neighbourhood alone there are 52 people who need help with transport and rehabilitation after strokes. Mpange often travels with Kissman Meje, who is a committee member of the HSSG and a paraplegic. Meje says transport is a massive challenge for stroke patients, espe-
cially those bound to a wheelchair. Mpange said some stroke patients can not get to the hospital for rehabilitation and are therefore completely dependent on HSSG for rehabilitation. He further explains that the community rejects stroke patients because they do not always understand their condition. “People get tired of helping you the whole time.” Mpange said the support groups had helped him to find his humanity once again. Cawood added that the HSSG has many plans to expand, but had to put all plans on ice, due to a lack of funding. “It is extremely frustrating.” The Helderberg Stroke Support Group thanked everyone who support the group. For more information about the Helderberg Stroke Support Group, visit their website on www.hssg.org.za or phone the office on 021 854 8118.
The prediction of a Somerset West resident that an oak tree, estimated to be older than 100 years will fall over, has come true. The much loved oak tree, situated on the Lourens River embankment, behind the Pick n Pay Riverside Centre in Somerset West fell down during the recent floods. The tree is one of two oak trees, which in recent months, were supported by gabions when the Lourens River was widened next to Pick n Pay Riverside. Earlier this year, Drew Harington told the DistrictMail that he noticed the ground around the tree being eroded away for months. He expressed his concern about it, but there seemed to be no attempt to correct the situation (“Old oak tree may soon end up in the drink”, District Mail, 11 July 2013). John Clements, a Somerset West resident said the City of Cape Town had fixed the gabions once after the water level rose, but when the gabions once again seemed to “sink”, nothing was done for months. Councillor Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport for Cape Town, said it would have been preferable to have repaired the gabion before winter, but said “unfortunately”
it did not happened due to the contractor running into financial trouble and the lack of resources. He added that the City believed the gabion could withstand “normal” winter conditions. “The intensity and duration of rainfall during August contributed to the early demise of the tree.” When asked if the tree could be saved, Herron said it is “doubtful” whether the tree, if rescued and replanted, will survive. “The City has obtained specialist advice and will further investigate once the river has subsided to such a degree that closer inspection can be made.” Clements expressed his disgust at the situation. “Apart from depriving us of something of beauty, what a waste of money and effort.” Herron said because the Lourens River is a protected natural environment, all exotic trees had to be removed in the areas where flood alleviation was executed. However, as a result of numerous requests, a number of exceptions were made and the two oak trees were retained in the flood plain. “We have tried to be innovative in our approach, and other than this particular case, all of the other islands that have thus far been created have stood the test. The team has also been lauded for the decision to create these islands,” said Herron.

Reaching out to cancer patients JAMEY THOMAS In December last year, Somerset West resident Alwyn Badenhorst (35) suffered a devastating loss; he lost his young wife of only two months to breast cancer. But instead of mourning 32year-old Helen’s death, Alwyn made the life-changing decision to honour her life and the person she was, and in so doing, also support other young women who are tirelessly fighting the battle with breast cancer. So earlier this year, Alwyn established the Helen Harder Foundation which aims to motivate and inspire such women and raise awareness around the disease. According to Alwyn one of their projects would be to provide women receiving treatment with a gift bag containing, amongst other things, toiletries, hand cream, lipstick, something to nibble on and drink, and general information on breast cancer. “With the gift bag we want to convey the message that we are here for you, and even your family members. “These women must know that they can contact us for help or support simply to make it easier on them,” explained Alwyn. However in order to do exactly this, Alwyn will complete one of the five big marathons which form part of the World Marathon Majors – the 40th BMW Berlin Marathon, Virgin Money London
Alwyn Badenhorst with his late wife, Helen (Harder) Badenhorst. Marathon, Tokyo Marathon, Boston Marathon and New York City Marathon – each year to generate funds. First on his list is the gruelling BMW Berlin Marathon to be held in Berlin, Germany on Sunday 29 September. This popular city-wide road race covers a distance of 42 km. According to Alwyn he decided to raise funds through running because of Helen’s love for the sport and being active. “Helen was a keen runner and cyclist. And despite receiving treatment at the time, she still completed the 2012 Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycling Tour with me,” said Alwyn. He also selected the Berlin marathon as the first to cross off the
list since Helen was originally from Berlin. Alwyn recalls how Helen moved to SA fifteen years ago to work as an au pair. They met in December 1998 for the first time, became friends and kept in contact. But when Helen returned to SA in April 2010 for a friend’s wedding, they realised that they had an “undeniable chemistry”. So much so that in June 2010, they decided that Helen would move to SA permanently and that they’d spend the rest of their lives together. However, in February 2011 Helen was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer after finding a lump in her breast the month before. But, because of Helen’s positive nature she refused to allow the disease to define her or affect how she lived life. With her trust firmly in God and acceptance for the things she could not change, she managed to maintain her zest for life, even until her dying day. “It is with Helen’s outlook that I want to instill hope in others who are diagnosed with breast cancer. I want them to be inspired by Helen, and motivated to win the battle.” Alwyn hopes to one day be able to render some financial assistance to those women diagnosed with breast cancer who cannot afford the treatment. Anyone willing and able to offer financial assistance towards Alwyn’s goal, please phone him on 084 710 0219.

Helderberg’s NPOs need your support The Helderberg is well known for many wonderful things such as its mountains, beaches, wine estates and beautiful scenery. But what many people living here are quick to forget is that it is also the home of numerous non-profit organisations (NPOs) and charities that provide a range of essential services to the community and their animals. If some of these organisations had to cease to operate, many old, frail, ill and poor people who are unable to fend for themselves, would be left helpless and destitute. The harsh reality is that because these charities are non-profit based, they rely on government grants, donations and sponsorship from people and businesses within the Helderberg to continue operating. Unfortunately for some of them the government has for some or other reason stopped funding them and funding from the Lotto and the community has also dried up. This is forcing them to stop or seriously consider terminating their operations. One such NPO is the Helderberg Stroke Support Group (HSSG) who faces the very real threat of having to close their doors soon. See story on page 5. The HSSG needs about R23 000 a month to remain operational and render a vital service to the many people who have suffered a stroke. Many of them live in extreme poverty in rural areas, and the regular visits to people in these communities by the HSSG is the only assistance they receive. Without our help, this assistance may soon disappear.

Jy’t ons hondjie doodgery en ’n onbeskryflike hartseer gelaat Op 29 Augustus om 19:30 is ons hondjie reg voor ons huis in Altenastraat dood gery. Hy het uitgekom terwyl ons ingery het en nie een van ons het gesien nie. Instinktief kyk ons vir voertuie wat kom, voor ons die hek oopmaak of die honde buite is of nie, daar was niks, so of jy moes gejaag het of jy moes uitgetrek het van ’n nabye huis. Ek glo van harte jy het gejaag anders sou jy betyds kon gestop het, of jy het vere gevoel en net aange-
hou met ry sonder om uit te swaai aangesien dit lig was in straat. Dit het alles in ’n kwessie van ’n minuut gebeur, jou gewetenlose verskoning van ’n mens kon ten minste gestop het. Ek verstaan dat ’n ongeluk ’n ongeluk is, maar jy het aangery asof niks gebeur het nie. Onthou net die wiel draai, wat jy saai sal jy maai. Klein Aggie wat elke aand warm geslaap het by my ma lê nou langs die huis onder die grond en nooit ooit sal ons hom
weer sien of met hom gaan loop of speel nie. Jy het ’n hele gesin gelaat met ’n leegheid en hartseer wat ek aan niemand kan beskryf nie.

Please cut the grass on open fields in Gordon’s Bay After the recent incident where the body of a woman was found in an open field (park) my concerns about the safety of people working in the complex were heightened. Because I stay really close to my work, I sometimes walk to work and I also enjoy jogging to the local gym where I pass at least eight open fields.
It now frightens me to see just how many open unkempt fields there are in the area. I know there is not much one can do about that except to try and maintain a clear, clean open property. I just feel that overgrown fields create more opportunities for trouble makers to hide and do bad
deeds. I am not sure who to ask for help in making Gordon’s Bay a safer by cutting the grass of these properties. So please, by means of this letter could you help me raise awareness about this matter? Thank you.

Dove shot dead in Woltemade Street with metal spike We recently found a severely injured dove in the road, unable to walk or fly. It had been shot in the back and a metal spike had penetrated right through its body and was protruding out the front. The poor creature must have suffered incredible agony, and fortunately died not long after we picked it up. The attached photos show the size. My concern is that there are several young children playing in Woltemade Street and what would
happen should one of them (or any other person or animal passing by) accidentally get hit? How do we know whether more birds are being targeted, with the bird sanctuary less than a block away? There’s also evidence of pellet guns being fired in the neighbourhood, using both plastic and lead pellets. Do parents know what “toys” their teenagers have?

Nonprofit organisation robbed next to Radloff Park Our non-profit organisation (Inspired2Become) is currently involved with a community project at Radloff Park building a skate park right opposite the Shell garage in Lourensford Road. Someone broke into our container next to the park and stole all our building equipment (including
two generators). We’re now in desperate need to replace the equipment and need funds to buy new equipment in order to finish the park. We have had a number of people asking us when the park will be finished, but without equipment it will not be possible.
The skate park is very visible and many people visit it (whether they skate or not). For more information visit our website at www.inspired2become.org.

The real sportsmen of the Helderberg On Saturday afternoon, being a little bored while standing on the Hamiltons tryline during the match against Helderberg played at the Morkel Stadium, I started watching a small group of local primary school kids having a game of touch rugby in the in-goal area. After a little while I noticed a young Hammies supporter, dressed in their kit, wearing new Adidas boots and with his name Nicholas on his back, approach the group and ask if he could also play. Being half the age of the group he was first interrogated and asked “is jy van Suid-Afrika”. Being English he didn’t really understand and quite frankly I don’t think Nicholas knew what he was, but he was invited to play.
I helped him tie his boot laces up and sent him on his way telling him not to get hurt, after which he proceeded to show me all his bruises and scratches from past experiences. On the field, Nicholas did not get the ball very often but fell on the turf many times (sometimes on purpose) and took great pride in running back to me and showing me the mud on his legs. To me, the real sportsman of the day wasn’t Hamiltons who thumped Helderberg or Helderberg who never gave up . . . it was this group of youngsters from the Strand, who helped make Nicholas’ day a memorable one.

I’m a well-known solo musician/entertainer living in Somerset West and frequently need to have my electronic music equipment (amplifiers/mixers etc) serviced. In the past I sent my equipment to a specialist music store’s repair depot in Cape Town and had to wait a few weeks to get it back. However, in conversation with the sales person in a local electronics/cell repair shop on Main Road, Somerset West I was assured that it was possible for them to service my noisy mixer/amplifier. I decided to take a chance and support local business instead of sending it to Cape Town. (Silly me!) After a few weeks I received the mixer back at the cost of R900, a bit steep for a service, I thought, but was told there were components that had to be replaced, so I coughed up.

I realised the problem had not been fixed and it was still making noises. When I returned the unit to the store the original sales person told me to take it directly to their other store further up Main Road where they had their workshop. I left the mixer with them for a further two weeks and was notified that it was ready for collection. They insisted that I pay another R650. When I returned home and tested the mixer I found it was still making intermittent noises. I took a video with sound recording of the noisy mixer/amp through my speakers (not trusting them with the unit again) and returned to the shop where I asked for a partial refund. They refused and I am R1 550 out of pocket. Well, you live and learn, I guess. GUY FELDMAN SOMERSET WEST

Lifestyle houses planned Belê in ‘n aandeel wat jy ken – Naspers for Sir Lowry’s Pass DALEEN FOUCHÉ A new lifestyle housing development is in the pipeline that could see Ingwe Wine Estate, situated in on the Sir Lowry’s Pass Village Road, transformed into an urban area. EnviroAfrica, on behalf of Ingwe Wine Estate (Pty) Ltd is applying, in terms of NEMA (National Environmental Management Act), to the Western Cape provincial authorities for environmental authorisation to develop 234 housing units and associated infrastructure on 40 hectares. The site is situated about 3 km from Mediclinic Vergelegen. A similar proposal, with a higher density, was proposed two years ago, but was withdrawn after in-
terested and affected parties opposed the density of the proposal, which planned for 10 units per ha. Jaco Louw, the project developer, says the housing proposal for Ingwe Wine Estate that was submitted in 2011, included the development of 400 housing units. The current proposal for 234 units comprises six units per hectare. “The application currently reflects a density that is regarded as appropriate for the area.” Ingwe Wine Estate will also lodge an application to the City of Cape Town to subdivide and rezone the property from agriculture to residential area. Louw says the 40 ha is not appropriate for agriculture, as there is no irrigation for that stretch of land. He says at present the area is being farmed at a loss of R500 000
per year. Louw says the land produces limited produce at around six tons per ha. “The site is ideal for development, it has beautiful views of the mountains and sea. Some of the vineyards will be retained, adding to the ambiance of a home in the winelands.” Louw says this is why an alternative plan had to be devised. He described the proposed development as a lifestyle security estate with a rural feel to it. Interested and affected parties are invited to have their say about the proposed development before 30 September. To register as an interested and affected party with regard to the authorisation to develop the property, send your comments and contact information to email@example.com.

Bykans elke huishouding gebruik vandag op een of ander wyse ’n produk van Naspers. DSTV en Multichoice (M-Net) is seker een van die bekendstes. DSTV het ’n blootstelling in 48 lande wat bykans 7 miljoen huishoudings insluit. Hierdie gedeelte maak 40% uit van Naspers se inkomste. MWeb is seker een van die bekendste internet diensverskaffers wat deur Naspers begin is. Die meeste van ons het al iets deur Kalahari.com gekoop, en as jy nie van die produk wat jy gekoop het hou nie, kan jy dit altyd weer op OLX verkoop – albei Naspers-handelsmerke. Ons almal lees van tyd tot tyd Die Burger, Raport, Sarie, Huisgenoot en You. Hierdie tydskrifte en koerante is ’n deel van menigte huishoudings se leefstyl. Hierdie gedrukte media maak omtrent 15% uit van Naspers se inkomste. In 2001 het Naspers ’n belang van 46% gekoop in ’n klein Chinese maatskappy genaamd Tencent. Hierdie maatskappy bied ’n eenstopdiens vir hul kliënte met betrekking tot aanlyn-aankope,
kort boodskappe, rekenaarspelletjies, advertensies en ook ’n soekenjin. Die laaste jaar alleen het Naspers bykans R4,5 miljard bestee om hul e-commerce en betaal TV operasies in Afrika uit te brei. Die aandeelprys van Naspers het in die laaste jaar amper verdubbel van R470 na R870. Die aandeel bly steeds baie duur, maar dalk vir ’n goeie rede. Naspers het ’n baie goeie bestuurspan onder leiding van Koos Bekker. Die gevoel is dat hulle die maatskappy steeds kan druk na nuwe hoogtes. Naspers het genoem dat hulle steeds besig is om nuwe geleenthede in ontluikende markte te soek. Hulle wil spesifiek aandag aan e-commerce-gedeelte gee.

Somerset House girls 2nd best in WP The Somerset House first girls hockey team have had a very successful season – losing only one match, drawing three and winning the remaining matches. Their season was wrapped up with an excellent tournament this past weekend. On Sunday afternoon, they participated in the Western Province u.13 Top Schools Hockey Tournament held at Hartleyvale Stadium in Cape Town. The top qualifying schools in each of the geographical areas within Western Province are invited to this tournament. Participating schools included: Kenridge, Grove, Bastion, Durbanville, Eversdal, Gene Louw, Somerset House, Somerset Col-
lege, De Hoop and Rhenish. Somerset House won three of their four pool matches and drew one, which ensured their win of the pool. They qualified for the semi-final which was played against friendly rivals, Somerset College. This was a tight game, however Somerset House managed to take advantage of a scoring opportunity and won this encounter with 1-0. Somerset House then played a tough final against the mighty Kenridge Primary. Kenridge scored first and with six minutes to spare, Somerset House managed to score an equaliser. The final score was 1-1 after full time. The teams then went straight
into a one on one shoot-out with the goalkeeper. Each team selected five strikers, who one by one attempted to score within eight seconds, starting at the 25-yard line. Exciting for spectators, but nerve racking for 13-year-old girls. Both teams played exceptionally well with Kenridge winning the shoot-out by 4-3 in the end. Somerset House wre therefore placed second and won silver medals, earning them the title of the second best u.13 girls team in Western Province. De Hoop Primary School’s first boys hockey team won gold medals at their Westgern Province Top Schools Tournament.

For Crystal, it’s all Steamers, gallies galore at Uilenkraalsmond in the swing Local Somerset West angler Rupert McNaught Davis once told me a classic fishing story that I would like to share. He said while he was spinning for yellowtail from a rock at Cape Infanta recently, a visiting Durban angler came to fish alongside him spinning with a coffee grinder reel filled with 20 lb line and no leader. He introduced himself as Peter Mardon. Rupert was very surprised when a short while later Peter landed a 5 kg yellowtail after quite a battle. The reason for Rupert’s surprise was the lure Peter was using. It was an 8 cm piece of the stem of a brass coloured bed lamp with wire threaded through the centre and a swivel at the one end and a treble hook at the other. This is a classic example of his innovative success in angling. You might ask yourself, is angling luck, skill or a combination of both? During the weekend a few anglers heard news about the galjoen and kob caught last week on Strandfontein beach, so went to investigate. Three four-wheel drive vehicles used by the anglers were subsequently hijacked and stolen by armed men along the Strandfontein beach in three separate instances during the weekend. Anglers are warned not to fish alone on this stretch of beach. Last Thursday two boats caught yellowtail from Harolds Bank near Olifantsbos and on Sunday a few yellowtail were boated just inside Cape Point.
The fish came on the bite at 16:00. Snoek shoals also appeared but were widely dispersed. The only reports of snoek caught were of a few boated by Gordon’s Bay boats at the “ou snoekgronde”. The past weekend all Western Province (WP) shore angling clubs had to fish in the Franskraal area. Lines were in at 07:00 on Saturday morning. Most of the anglers fished at Uilenkraalsmond on the “grys” and a lot of steenbras and galjoen were caught. Jan Brink from False Bay club caught two steenbras and three galjoen. There were also several anglers who caught three or more fish on the day. The two clubs that did well were Tygerberg and Four Oceans. At 15:00 the scales were closed and most of the fish were tagged and released. Locals watching the weigh in could not believe that so many fish were released. Between 20 and 30 steenbras were caught and although not all were size, the points counted as every kilogram of an edible fish is worth seven points. The biggest steenbras was around 9 kg while there were many between 3 kg and 6 kg. The best bait was blood worm and moonshine worm for steenbras and wonder worm and red bait for galjoen. Jan Brink said that while they were fishing about 20 perlemoen
poachers arrived in full gear and got into the water. Jan said they were arrogant and not afraid of anyone and moved lines away to swim into the sea. Jan added that during all this time no inspectors were in sight. He said this was unfair because while all the anglers stayed on the right side of the law as regards not driving on the beach, bag limits, permits, tagging and releasing, using only one rod, having the legal amount of bait, cleaning the beaches after fishing and staying on the marked roads within the nature reserve the poachers could do as they liked. He said it was sad for the fishermen to see how the outlaws ruin the heritage for present and future generations and get away with it! I wonder how many readers know that just after World War II Primo Livenais, a distance caster, using tackle from that era cast a sinker 270 yards (246,89 metres). Even today that cast would put him among the casting elite. He is still celebrated as the greatest caster of all time. Livenais used the so called “off the ground” casting style and not standing on a dais. A true master blaster! For all your reel repairs and services contact Art on 021 854 3831.

JAMEY THOMAS To drive a golf ball long, straight and true is a skill not everyone can master. However, for Crystal Beukes (12) from Somerset West it’s all in the swing. The grade 6 St Peters Academy pupil recently received her senior colours after being selected for the Boland ladies A-team which will participate in the Pick n Pay SA Inter-provincial Golf Tournament at the Port Elizabeth Golf Club in the Eastern Cape from 22 to 27 September. The young golfer’s achievement has also earned her August’s DistrictMail Let’s Play Sport Star award. Crystal has been a keen golf player for the past four years and her interest in the sport was sparked by her 16-year-old brother Riaan’s love and passion for golf. “Riaan plays golf so well, and he was recently taken up as a member of the Ernie Els Foundation. “The heights he has reached by pursuing golf, encourages and motivates me to do the same,” she said with a wide grin. Crystal started playing golf as a member of the Somerset West Golf Club and was coached by Josh Bezuidenhout for two years. At the age of 10 Crystal not only
received her junior colours, but was also awarded the title of golfer of the year at Somerset West Golf Club. She also holds the title of ladies club champion for 2013. However, Crystal has been coached by Boland Ladies Golf Union head coach, Anna Becker Franke for the past two years and is now a new member of the Stellenbosch Golf Club. According to the talented golfer nothing beats being alone on the golf course with only the ball, golf clubs and one’s thoughts. “Besides the fact that golf serves as a natural stress reliever and keeps me focused, it teaches me so much: punctuality, quietness, etiquette, patience, humility, discipline, accountability and so much more. “I simply have a natural love for the sport,” explained Crystal. But, Crystal reckons she doesn’t just expect to do well. She puts in extra effort and works hard. Apart from matches, she has practice sessions for one hour on Mondays, she also squeezes in another hour on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and she spends two hours on the golf course every Thursday. “I constantly push myself, on and off the golf course. I want to do the best I can in order to be the best I can be,” said Crystal. “But to get so far in such a short period of time, is definitely something to be proud of. Even if I must say so myself.”

Unsavoury incidents spoil endofseason games Even at this late stage of the rugby season, the passion and pride of the players and spectators are clearly evident. This passion does somehow go overboard and it spills into unsavoury incidents at our club matches. With three of our region’s clubs being “involved’’ this is never a pleasant subject to report on. The match between Macassar and Rangers in Macassar ended with the police having to be called in to calm the situation. At the same time an All Saints player was allegedly attacked at Calledonian Roses in Athlone, while the match between Strand and Manenberg Rangers had to be called off with the referee being threatened by Rangers players after Strand ran into a commanding lead, ten minutes into the game. Raithby is the only local club that have completed their league and now have a nervy two-week wait to see if they end in the top 5 and gain promotion. This week’s fixtures are: Sir Lowrians vs Rangers (Sir Lowry’s Park)

DistrictMAIL HEARTBEAT OF THE HELDERBERG
HELDERBERG: BUIG DIE KNIE OP TUISVELD
Hamilton domineer Hamilton, wat reeds gekwalifiseer het om in die aanstaande jaar se nasionale gemeenskapsbeker-kompetisie mee te ding, was eenvoudig te sterk vir Helderberg op sy tuisveld dié Saterdag. Die besoekers het met ’n oortuigende 42-12 geseëvier.
Hamilton het van die begin af die toon aangegee en het alle fases gedomineer. Helderberg se voorspelers was soos gewoonlik hoogs kompeterend, maar agterlangs was daar egter ’n groot verskil. Die besoekers het drie verdoelde drieë in die eerste helfte gedruk vir ’n 21-0 voorsprong. In die tweede helfte was dit meer van dieselfde, want die besoekers het nog drie verdoelde drieë tot die telling bygevoeg vir ’n 42-2 voorsprong. Op hierdie stadium het Helderberg egter teruggekom en self twee drieë gaan druk. Sy eerste drie het gekom van ’n puik stukkie spel van die plaasvervanger-skrum-
skakel Breyten Isaacs. Die drie is verdoel deur heelagter James Amm. Kort voor die eindfluitjie, het die regtervleuel Gerhard du Plessis ’n hoekdrie gaan druk om die eindtelling op 42-12 te staan te bring. Uitstaande spel is gelewer deur die jong slot Marthinus van den Berg terwyl die veteraan, agsteman Gary Williams en die kaptein en slot De Wet Neethling nogmaals hul harte uitgespeel het. Wanneer hierdie berig gelees word, het Helderberg reeds sy laaste ligawedstryd Woensdag op Ikeys gespeel. Die klub se gholfdag vind Donderdag 19 September op die Strand se bane plaas, en die klub se prysuitdeling vind Vrydagaand om 19:30 in die klubhuis plaas. Toegang kos slegs R75 per persoon en daar word van mans verwag om ’n das te dra. Die Crusaders (vierde) span speel Vrydagaand 13 September sy laaste ligawedstryd op Philip Herbstein teen Valsbaai.

Helderberg se nommer vyf, Kuifie van den Berg het in ’n eienaardige posisie op die grond neergeslaan. Agter is spanmaats Gary Williams (agsteman) en skrumskakel Armien Bailey spoedig oppad om hand te gee.
