Two suspected armed robbers crashed their getaway vehicle after trying to escape along the N2 with a large number of stolen cigarettes.

ARRESTED: ROBBERS STILL IN HOSPITAL

Shoot­out after cigarette heist JAMEY THOMAS Two armed robbery suspects sustained serious injuries in a shootout while attempting to escape with cigarettes worth R100 000 on Tuesday (14 May). According to Constable Suzan Jantjies, spokesperson for the Somerset West police, the incident occurred around 08:00 when a British American Tobacco (BAT) delivery vehicle stopped at a tuck shop in Sir Lowry’s Pass to drop off supplies. Two armed men approached the delivery vehicle and held the driver at gunpoint. The men off-loaded the large supply of cigarettes into the back of a dark green Ford bakkie and locked the driver of the delivery vehicle in the cargo area. The robbers drove off with the load, in the direction of the N2 towards Cape Town. “In the meantime, the driver they had locked up managed to free himself from the delivery vehicle and informed his colleagues, who were delivering supplies in Lwandle, about what has happened,” said Jantjies.

“The driver gave his colleagues a detailed description of the getaway vehicle.” The driver’s colleagues, accompanied by armed security guards, alerted the police and rushed to the driver’s aid but passed and recognised the robbers en route to the scene. The suspects recognised them too and opened fire. According to a BAT spokesperson the security guards returned fire. Wounded during the shoot-out, the suspect in the driver’s seat lost control of the vehicle and collided with an electricity pole at the side of the road, a few metres from the Gordon’s Bay/N2 intersection. Police arrived in time to apprehend the suspects, who were still on the scene. Due to the severity of their wounds, the suspects had to receive urgent medical attention under the police’s watch. One of the suspects was airlifted to Tygerberg Hospital while the other was transported to Helderberg Hospital. The suspect admitted to Helderberg Hospital was wounded in the

The BAT spokesperson said that, although their driver is unharmed, he is receiving trauma counselling. “We are thankful that the driver was not injured and that all the stock was returned.” It was later discovered that the dark green bakkie was recently reported stolen in Wynberg.

A case of armed robbery, attempted murder and possession of a stolen vehicle is being investigated. The suspects will appear in the Somerset West Magistrate’s Court as soon as they are discharged from hospital. Last week DistrictMail reported on a previous incident in which another BAT vehicle was targeted. Two suspects held the driver of the delivery vehicle, which stopped

at a vendor stall alongside Sir Lowry’s Pass Road in Gordon’s Bay, at gunpoint. The suspects made off with R100 and the delivery vehicle. After being pursued by the police, the suspects were forced to stop the vehicle in Drommedaris Street and fled on foot into the residential area. A case of armed robbery and hijacking is being investigated and no suspects have been identified.

2 Distrikspos Huishulp se appèl verwerp

Nuus News

16 Mei, 2013

ILLANA FRANTZ Nicoleen Williams (40), die vrou wat drie jaar tronkstraf opgelê is nadat sy twee ringe ter waarde van R219 000 gesteel het, het die afgelope Maandag ’n aansoek om verlof tot appèl teen haar vonnis ingedien. Die DistriksPos het verlede week berig hoe Williams ’n werk as huishulp by ’n bejaarde vrou van die Strand aanvaar het. Sy het Dinsdag 9, Vrydag 12 en Saterdag 13 April by die vrou gewerk. Die volgende dag (Sondag) het die vrou besef dat twee van haar ringe, wat antieke erfstukke is, weg is. Sy het die polisie ontbied, met die vermoede dat haar nuwe huishulp dalk hiervoor verantwoordelik kon wees. Die vrou het die huishulp weer op Maandag (15 April) laat kom, waarna sy die polisie weer ontbied het. Die polisiebeamptes het die huishulp ondervra en sy het skuld beken. Regshulp Zaida de Jager het namens Williams in die Strand-landdroshof opgetree. Sy het onder meer die volgende redes vir die appèlaansoek aangevoer; drie jaar gevangenisstraf is ’n skok vir Williams wat ’n eerste oortreder met twee minderjarige kinders is, en dat Williams uit die staanspoor skuldig gepleit het en nie die hof se tyd gemors het nie. De Jager is ook van mening dat ’n ander landdros Williams ’n ligter vonnis sou gegee

het. Clement Abrahams vir die staat het hierop reageer en gesê dat Williams die ringe gesteel het omdat die klaer nie vir haar ekstra geld wou gegee het nie. “Die waarde van die ringe is ’n groot bedrag en net omdat dit teruggevind is, beteken nie dat dit nie gebeur het nie. Daar is baie sake op die hofrol waar werknemers van hul werkgewers steel en in dié geval gee dit ’n slegte reputasie aan ander huishulpe,” het hy gesê. Hy het bygevoeg dat daar geen reël is wat sê dat ’n eerste oortreder nie direkte tronkstraf opgelê mag word nie. Tydens die hofverrigtinge het Williams met ’n Bybel in haar hand in die beskuldigde bank gestaan en net voor haar uitgestaar. In haar uitspraak het landdros Karen Scheepers gesê dat die klaer Williams vertrou het om haar huis skoon te maak, maar dat sy die klaer se vertroue verbreek het toe sy die ringe gesteel het. “Die hof het meer as twee keer oor die vonnis gedink. Daar is baie bejaarde, afgetrede mense in die Strand en mense moet veilig voel om ’n huishulp aan te stel. “Die erns van die misdryf is groot en ek sien geen ander gepaste vonnis nie.” Scheepers het Williams se aansoek om verlof tot appèl teen haar vonnis van die hand gewys.

GONE IN THE BLAZE: A home in Mariners Way, Gordon’s Bay burnt down around 09:38 on Tuesday morning. According to Theo Layne, spokesperson for the City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Services, a total of 14 firefighters responded to the incident where they found wood and iron structures alight. Firefighters battled with the blaze for approximately 33 minutes before extinguishing it. No injuries or fatalities were reported.

Under the gavel /Voor die regsbank Neighbour stabbed

Zolisa Somphali (44) appeared in the Strand Magistrate’s Court this past Monday after he allegedly stabbed his neighbour. According to the charge sheet, the accused stabbed his neighbour three times in the head and shoulder on Friday 26 April. He was arrested on 11 May and during his last court appearance this past Monday was released on R500 bail. He was however warned not to interfere with the complainant and the matter was postponed to 30 May for mediation.

Ammunisie in besit

’n Vrou (29) word van die onwettige besit van ammunisie aangekla nadat 19 patrone na bewering in haar besit gevind is. Tydens haar verskyning Maandag in die Strand-landdroshof, het Monique Solomons van Broadlands Park beweer dat sy slegs die patrone vir ’n vriend van haar gestoor het. Hy het dit glo drie weke terug aan haar gegee. Dié vriend was ook in die hof en landdros Karen Scheepers het hom na vore geroep. Hy het ook beweer dat iemand anders die koeëls aan hom gegee het om te hou. Borgtog van R500 is aan Solomons toegestaan en sy maak weer haar volgende hof-

verskyning op 21 Mei.

‘Drug smuggler’

Abraham Petersen (35), the man who was arrested for attempting to smuggle drugs into the Strand Magistrate’s Court on Friday 3 May, made his second court appearance on Monday 13 May. Last week the DistrictMail reported how security officials at the court found two parcels of dagga on the accused. He was then taken to the Strand police station where he was subjected to a second search where 10 mandrax tablets and one small bag of tik was discovered on him. The value of the drugs is estimated at R1 000. Magistrate Karen Scheepers granted the accused R3 000 bail and the case was postponed to 14 August, awaiting the results of the laboratory report.

In hof vir diefstal

Reginald Sylvester (29), Craig Fortuin (25) en Manvill Follmer staan tereg op ’n aanklag van diefstal. Luidens die klagstaat het hulle op 10 Mei sigarette ter waarde van R3 000 by ’n woning in Nautilusstraat, Strand gesteel. Clement Abrahams vir die staat het borgtog teengestaan. Die saak is tot 20 Mei vir ’n aansoek om borgtog uitgestel.

R ’n Voorval van gewapende roof het omstreeks 10:00 op Donderdag 9 Mei by Cash Converters in die Helderberg Village Walk-winkelsentrum plaasgevind.

Gewapende roof by Cash Converters “Daar was ’n harde geluid en toe hoor ek iemand sê ‘go down’.” Dít is die woorde van ’n getraumatiseerde personeellid ná ’n gewapende rooftog by Cash Converters, ’n pandjieswinkel in die Helderberg Village Walk-winkelsentrum, Somerset-Wes. Die besturende direkteur vir Cash Converters SA (Pty) Ltd, Richard Mukheibir, vertel die voorval het omstreeks 09:47 plaasgevind terwyl die eienaar vir ’n wyle uit was. Twee mans, een met ’n vuurwapen en die ander met ’n hamer gewapen, het by die winkel ingeloop. Een van hulle het as ’n wag by die deur gestaan en die ander het homself as ’n klant wat in juwele belangstel, voorgedoen. “Die twee mans het hul kans mooi afgewag en ná ’n paar oomblikke het die ‘wag’ sy vuurwapen uitgepluk en almal beveel om plat op

die vloer te lê,” sê Mukheibir. Die “klant” het toe na die glaskas waarin die juwele uitgestal was gegaan en dit met die hamer ingeslaan. Die mans het die juwele gegryp en te voet daarmee op die vlug geslaan. Een van die ses personeellede het kort daarna die paniekknoppie gedruk. Volgens dié personeellid, wat verkies om anoniem te bly, het Gordonsbaai Sekuriteit hulle binne minute te hulp gesnel. Die Somerset-Wes-polisie het bevestig dat geen skote afgevuur is nie en niemand tydens die voorval beseer is nie. Die polisie wou egter nie die waarde van die juwele waarmee die mans ontsnap het, bekend maak nie. Maar volgens een van die personeellede het ’n ketting ter waarde van R7 000 – wat sy nog dié oggend in die glaskas gesit het – deel van die gesteelde juwele uitgemaak. Hoewel niemand tydens die voorval beseer is nie, is personeel emosioneel en getraumati-

seer, het Mukheibir gesê. Die algemene reaksie onder die personeel was dat hulle nie hul gevoelens kon verwoord ná die traumatiese voorval nie. Almal was net bly dat niemand seergekry het nie, want “dinge kon soveel anders gewees het”. “Ons eienaar-bestuurde winkels is deel van hul gemeenskap met gereelde, lojale klante. Dit was dus vir ons ’n skok dat hierdie hegte span mense dié trauma moes beleef waarvoor hulle berading moes ontvang,” het Mukheibir gesê. “Ons is verlig dat niemand beseer is nie en werk saam met die SAPD om die mans aan te keer.” Die voorval is op die winkel se sekuriteitskamera vasgelê en ’n kopie van die beeldmateriaal is aan die polisie oorhandig. ’n Saak van besigheidsroof word ondersoek. Enigiemand met inligting kan die Somerset-Wes-polisie by 021 850 1300 kontak.

4 Distrikspos Vissers op Strand aangerand en van hul toerusting beroof

Nuus News

16 Mei, 2013

ILLANA FRANTZ ’n Man van die Strand wil ander vissermanne waarsku ná hy en sy skoonseun Saterdag by die Strand aangeval is. Die man (47) wat anoniem wil bly, vertel hy en sy skoonseun (24) het dié aand oorkant die Melkbaaiwoonstelle in Kusweg gaan visvang. Omstreeks 22:30 het van die ander vissermanne die see ingegaan. Die twee mans het ’n groep jong seuns by die nabygeleë toilette opgelet wat in hul toerusting gekrap het. “Ons het vir hulle geskree en hulle het weggehardloop. My skoonseun het toe een van hulle agterna gesit en gevang en hom begin slaan omdat hulle ons toerusting wou steel,” vertel die man.

Die res van die groep het toe op ’n wit bakkie gespring. “Dit het gelyk of hulle uit die parkeerarea gaan wegry, maar toe het ’n nog groter groep, seker so agt van hulle, met slaangoed uit die bakkie gespring.” Die groep het die twee mans op die strand gejaag en met klippe en sand bestook. Die skoonseun is teen die kop getref en die man teen die skouer. Wat hulle egter gered het, was die sirene van ’n aankomende polisie-voertuig op pad na ’n ongelukstoneel. Die groep seuns het toe weggehardloop en tussen die huise verdwyn. “Ons het die polisie gestop en hulle vertel wat gebeur het. Die beampte het gesê dat sy eers na die ongelukstoneel sal gaan en dan weer terug sal kom,” vertel die man, wat

die afgelope drie jaar in die Strand woon. Toe die polisie weg is, wou die groep weer terugkom, maar ’n man in ’n wit Volkswagen Jetta, wat ook wou kom visvang het, het by die pa en skoonseun gestop. Hulle het hom van die gebeure vertel en gevra om daar te bly staan terwyl hulle die res van hul toerusting, wat nie gesteel is nie, in hul motor gelaai het. “Ek het nie die saak by die polisie aangemeld nie, want teen daai tyd wou ek net by die huis uitkom. “Ek is nou te bang om weer te gaan visvang. Ek moet nou eers ’n wapen kry om myself te beskerm, want my kar is sekerlik gemerk.” Die man het gesê dat ander vissermanne uit sy ervaring moet leer en waaksaam moet wees wanneer hulle saans gaan visvang.

Man kry 21 jaar ná moord op beampte Ngakweliphi Nyati (38), die man wat van die moord op ’n Vetus Schola-beampte aangekla is, is Maandag tot 21 jaar tronkstraf in die Somerset-Wes-landdroshof gevonnis. Die beampte, Jhuvonne Julies (33), is op 21 Julie in Lourensfordweg, oorkant die Shell Garage, deur Nyati met ’n mes aangeval. Op die betrokke aand het Julies op ’n oproep van personeel by die Shell-vulstasie reageer. Volgens ooggetuies het Julies, wat toe slegs twee maande in diens van die sekuriteitsmaatskappy was, uit sy voertuig geklim toe Nyati op hom afgestorm het en hom met ’n mes gesteek het. Julies het van sy aanval-

ler probeer vlug, maar het gestruikel en geval. Nyati het toe na bewering bo-op Julies gaan sit en hom herhaaldelik in die bors en nek gesteek waarna hy met Julies se vuurwapen weggehardloop het. Julies het op die toneel aan sy beserings beswyk. Nyati is op 30 Augustus in Somerset-Wes in hegtenis geneem nadat hy luidrugtig en onder die invloed van drank in die openbaar was. Tydens ’n visentering is ’n vuurwapen met patrone in sy besit gevind. Die vuurwapen is later getoets en positief met die voorval waarin Julies dood is, verbind. Nyati se tronkstraf is opgedeel in 15 jaar vir die

moord, drie jaar vir die diefstal van die vuurwapen, waarvan 12 maande opgeskort is vir vyf jaar, en drie jaar vir die onwettige besit van ’n vuurwapen. Nadene Kannemeyer, Julies se vriendin, het gemengde gevoelens oor die uitspraak gehad. “Ek was een keer by die hof, maar dit het my net ontstel want ek weet hy het dit moedswillig gedoen. “Dis goeie nuus en ek is bly. Die Here is goed.” Sy het ook die ondersoekbeampte, ao. Carleigh Noemdoe, geprys vir sy rol. Somerset-Wes stasiebevelvoerder, kol. Mary Ann Williams, het ook waardering vir Noemdoe se puik speurwerk uitgespreek.

Rape victim feels community failed him NIKITA SYLVESTER “You will never forget Valentine’s Day again.” These were the words a 38-year-old Strand resident was left with after he was raped by three unknown men. It’s been three months since his traumatic ordeal, but *John is determined to make people aware that rape is a reality and that it happens to men as well. Sitting in his apartment last week, staring blankly into the distance, John nervously recalled the daunting experience which changed his life forever. “I was walking towards the Strand train station at around 05:30, on my way to work. At the corner of Union and Da Gama Streets a man in a white Hyundai stopped next to me. He asked where I was going, I replied to the train station and he offered me a lift,” said John. Unaware that there were another two men in the back seat, John got into the car. “They blindfolded me and began to drive. I had no idea where they were going but it felt like an eternity. “All I could think of was what they were going to do to me. Were they going to kill me and dump me? Would I ever see my partner, my mother or two children again?” When they finally came to a stop, John said he suspects they were in an informal settlement. “I could hear dogs barking, and people talking. Once we were inside a small room, they removed the blindfold. And then it started.” John recalled that one of the men who seemed to be the instigator was smartly dressed in a suit and tie. With much difficulty he told how all three men had raped him and thereafter relieved themselves on him. Their words to him were: “Nou weet jy hoe dit voel om met ’n regte man te wees” as well as “Nou weet jy ook hoe ruik ’n man”. After all three men had their way with him, John said before leaving the room they blindfolded him again, took him back to the car and started to drive.

The next time the blindfold was removed John found himself sitting on the pavement outside the Strand train station. He said it must have been around 11:00 that morning when the men left him there. “I just sat there for a while before I made my way back home,” said John. He explained that this ordeal had a huge effect on his now fearful life. He can’t board a train or be around too many people without feeling overwhelmed and anxious. “I will never forget the smell of his aftershave or the wedding ring he wore,” John remembers as he thinks back to the man in the suit, “or the fluffy Dalmation hanging from the rear-view mirror as I got into the car”. John feels that because he is a homosexual the

community has failed him. He claims that he reported the incident to the Strand police soon after it happened. Upon returning to the police station a few days later to retrieve his case number, he was told there was no record of the incident being reported and then had to give his statement again. The police referred him to Rape Crisis for treatment. According to John he felt discriminated against when he was told at the centre that the crime kit used on rape victims could only be performed on women. John claims that despite being examined by counsellors as well as a doctor, no tests were performed or medication provided, only his blood pressure was taken. What disappointed John even more was when he recently received an SMS from the police stating that his “case has been withdrawn”. Reinette Evans, director and counsellor at Helderberg Rape Crisis, feels that John had been misinformed. “Unfortunately the crime kit and medication can only be provided within 72 hours after the rape took place, thereafter our hands are completely tied. “We encourage victims to come forward as soon as possible,” said Evans. Strand police spokesperson, Const Mbulelo Mafuna, confirmed that the case was reported and transferred to Family violence, Child protection and Sexual offences unit for investigation (FCS). However, Mafuna said that if new leads or information are received the investigation will proceed. “I feel people are not bothered because I am gay or that I went looking for it. “Don’t be so quick to judge people just because they are different. “I would love to form a support group to help me get through this. If there is anyone out there who would like to share their experience with me I would gladly offer my assistance,” said John. Anyone with information about the incident contact Lt Col Franklin Plaatjies on 082 469 3359. *Not his real name.

For Helderberg commuters who rely on the Golden Arrow Bus service to get around, alternative transport arrangements are now a thing of the past. This comes after the three week long nationwide bus drivers’ wage strike has finally come to an end. Bus drivers affiliated to the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) and the Transport and Omnibus Workers Union (Towu) undertook strike action on Friday 19 April. Initially employers offered a 6,5% wage increase, while unions demanded an 18% wage increase. After almost two weeks of strike action and a number of deadlocked negotiations, unions lowered their demand to a 13%, while employers improved their offer to 8%. But, still no one would settle. Further negotiations finally resulted in an agreement being reached. A wage increase of 9,5% was settled upon on Monday. According to Bronwen Dyke, spokesperson for Golden Arrow Bus Service, Tuesday already saw 80 percent of their staff back at work. By Wednesday, 99% of their staff were on the job with the bus service running smoothly.

) Wat ’n jammerte om te hoor dat Pick n Pay Broadlands nou amptelik hul deure gesluit het. Dit was ’n genot om daar te shop. Dit is skoon en dit was net lekker om in so ’n winkel te wees. Vir meer as twee jaar het ek dit geniet. Wat die rede vir hul sluiting is, weet ek nie. Wat ’n jammerte vir dié wat dit meer gerieflik gevind het om daar te shop.

Is crime on the rise in the Helderberg? This edition of the DistrictMail features several violent crimes which occurred in and around the Helderberg during the past week. It is not the intention of this newspaper to shock our readers or sensationalise these events. Our task is to report on all happenings within the Helderberg and to inform our readers of what is going on around them. Crime-related reports will hopefully inform and educate our readers so that they learn from what is going on around them.

Hawkers selling plastic rhino horns I saw the advertisement on television about the plastic rhino horns you can buy at CNA. Recently I also noticed hawkers selling these plastic horns at the traffic lights on the N2. I was just wondering, if by any chance, someone can look into it because I’m 99% sure that the money that they get from selling those horns does not contribute to the rhinos at all. If it is possible, please notify the public to rather buy the plastic horns at CNA for R30 if they really care. I think it’s a little unfair and fraudulent to make money from someone else’s charity – if this is the case.

‘Strand­polisie doen weer hul berugte swak diens gestand’ Op Sondagoggend (21 April) om 01:00 uur word my seun van die pad afgetrek nadat hy sy kollega in Kusweg gaan aflaai het ná ’n skof by Privè Private Bar. Hy word toe ingeneem polisiestasie toe waar hy van sy beursie beroof word. Daar was net een man aan diens. Hy konfiskeer my seun se knipmes en dié word in een of ander register opgeteken, maar die beursie met R50 verdwyn. Die tragedie is egter dat al die bankkaarte, rybewys wat in die beursie was, ook nou gesteel is. Die

man aan diens dra nou kwansuis geen kennis van die beursie nie – en dit vir ’n skamele R50. ’n Saak van diefstal is oopgemaak en kan met die polisie bevestig word, maar bowenal, die ongerief om weer, met kostes, al daardie kaarte te vervang. My seun se reg op ’n prokureur asook ’n telefoniese oproep was ook geskend en sy regte was nooit vir hom voorgelees nie. Strand-polisie doen weer hulle berugte swak diens en diefstal gestand.

ANONIEM

STRAND Const Mbulelo Mafuna, spokesperson for the Strand police responds: This office can confirm that the accused was arrested for allegedly driving while under the influence. Upon his release he alleged that some of his property was missing. A docket for theft was opened and the investigation continues. Anyone with information that may assist the investigation, can phone Lt Col Franklin Plaatjies on 082 469 3359.

Re­zoning of property will cause more traffic problems The owner of Erf 1757 and 1758, which are numbers 11 and 13 Lourensford Road is, re-zoning them into a single property and putting up a double-story mixed-use development of offices, retail development, restaurant/coffee shop. This development will also have underground parking.

The amount of collisions and near misses at the corner of Lourensford Street and Caledon Street is amazing, and to have more traffic feeding in from almost opposite the intersection is frightening. I feel this should be brought to the public’s knowledge, so that they too can put in objections to

the municipality. Traffic lights cannot be erected at this corner as it is too close to the Main Road and Lourensford Road intersection.

Vetus Schola se passie vir werk ’n inspirasie Graag wil ons almal by Vetus Schola bedank nadat julle ’n skelm vasgetrek het wat ’n nuwe stel gholfstokke by ons eiendom gesteel het. Shaun en die manne het lont geruik nadat hulle ’n persoon douvoordag met ’n stel gholfstokke by

die pad sien afstap het. Hulle het dadelik gereageer en hom vasgetrek voordat hy nog kon gaan “gholf” speel. Wat hierdie voorval so besonders maak, is dat ons nie eens een van hul kliënte is nie.

Thank you Cllr Van Minnen We would like to thank councillor Benedicta van Minnen from the bottom of our hearts for all the support and donations given to us over the years. We know you do not always get the recognition you deserve, therefore we would like you to know how much your efforts mean to us. We know we can always count on you and that you go the extra mile, often beyond the call of duty.

You are an irreplaceable part of our community and we value you. Thanks for always following up and remembering our school. You are a woman of true character and we admire your passion for your job. You are the best councillor we have ever had. Please keep up the good work.

Well done Somerset West traffic department Yesterday afternoon (Monday 13 May), my driver’s licence, Fedhealth medical aid membership card and all my loyalty cards were stolen out of my rucksak at Somerset Mall. I would like to let the public know that this morning (Tuesday 14 May) two employees from the Somerset West traffic department went out of their

way to assist me by rendering me excellent customer services. They greatly assisted me with obtaining a new driver’s license. Their names are Tanya Anthony and Jeremy du Toit. What a relief this assistance was for me, a 74-year-old senior citizen. GUDRUN KOCH STRAND

) Baie dankie mej Meyer vir die groen bins se skoon maak. Danie ) Just want to thank the lovely ladies at uncle Manny’s Fisheries, Main Road, Strand for the absolute best fried fish I have ever eaten! Will definitely be a repeat customer. Thanks, DJ ) There is talk every where about “saving” electricity, how about investigations being done on these huge spot lights that burn all night, namely Harmony Park? Why must the rate payers be targeted for wastage like this? ) Kan iemand my dalk sê hoekom die munisipaliteite verwag dat die seniorburgers nog hulle sypaadjies in stand moet hou met hul karige toelae? Ek dink dis skokkend terwyl die regering geld gee vir instandhouding van parke se sypaadjies. ) A big thank you to Anton Fourie and his staff at BP garage, Gordon’s Bay who were helping me on two very stressful occasions. I am very grateful especially to Anton, thanks again. Resi Kothe ) Neighbours in the Orion Close area, are you not absolutely exasperated by the continuous barking of an obviously bored dog whose owners are either away all day and don’t stop to consider the needs of their pet or are stone deaf and don’t care about those living close by? Shame on you. ) Horlosie gevind in park. Stuur beskrywing en u kontakbesonderhede aan die DistriksPos en ek kontak u graag. ) Totally agree with John. Week later and still waiting for the plumber to pitch as well as a paver for a quote. Been disappointed with this attitude more than once before.

Quality service at Colin van Wyk Optometrist After 20 years of working in Worcester, Colin van Wyk Optometrist was established in Somerset West in 2004 in a beautifully renovated old house in Lourensford Road. At Colin van Wyk Optometrist they strive to provide quality and efficient service. When it comes to your eyes they believe that their clients deserve only the best, which is why they take pride in their comprehensive 45 minute eye test. During the eye test the optometrist will conduct a full case history, do retinoscopy, a refraction, extra ocular muscle testing, slit lamp examination, visual field measurement, ophthalmoscopy, fundus photography and glaucoma testing. They also do colorimetry testing and eye movement assessment (using a visagraph). Colin van Wyk Optometrist makes use of the latest technology combined with years

of experience. Today more people become successful contact lens wearers because of advances in contact lens technology. There are many designs and type of lenses available and according to your eye health, lifestyle, visual and occupational needs the optometrist will be able to determine the best suitable contact lens for you. They specialise in fitting and assessment of hard contact lenses, but also have an extensive range of soft lenses, including daily disposables, monthly disposables and multi-focal lenses. They provide a wide selection of frames, sunglasses and contact lenses, as well as extras such as cases, cords, cleaning kits, clipons, UV shields, ready made readers etc. Their on-site lab is available to assist with repairs and cutting of spectacle lenses.

As an additional service they also have a Wise Eye Reading Lab where they assist children to become better, faster and more efficient readers. Colin van Wyk Optometrist can scientifically and accurately measure the eye movements during silent reading with a specialized devise called the visagraph. With the Wise Eye programme they will be able to identify any reading problems related to incorrect eye movement. In 2008 they opened a Low Vision centre to accommodate the increasing demand for low vision services in the Helderberg. They provide a comprehensive low vision assessment and have a full range of low vision devises like magnifiers, telescopes, and electronic equipment as well as other assistive devices to help improve the quality of life of all their low vision clients.

Guidelines on finding the right daycare centre for your youngster Parents are often faced with the problem of finding a suitable daycare or pre-school for their child. Here are some tips on how to select a daycare centre which you would be happy with. If someone is looking after six or more children, they are required by law to be registered,

to have certain facilities and a certain level of training. There are regulations with regards to space, toilets and washbasins as well as prescribed menus to be followed if a daycare centre receives a government food subsidy. The extensive requirements are laid down in a manual titled “Early Childhood Development” issued

by the Department of Health and Social Services. Tips on how to find a suitable crèche or daycare: . What does the daily programme look like? . Is the person looking after the children a trained caregiver? . Who will stand in if she gets ill? . Are there other adults on the premises during the day who are not involved with the running of the daycare centre? . How many children are catered for at the daycare centre? . Who decides on the menus and their nutritional value? . Does the caregiver have any first aid training? . What will this person do if there is a crisis of any sort? . Are parents welcome to drop in any time? . What would the caregiver do if your oneyear-old drew on the wall? . What is the policy with regards to illness? . Are the other children vaccinated against diseases such as polio and smallpox?

Cell. 084 40 30 809 Tel. 021 852 5778 storm@jellybabies.co.za www.jellybabies.co.za

. What stimulating educational activities are there for the children? . Are the fees payable per month or per term? . What is the ‘notice period’? . What are the opening and closing times? . How much will parents have to pay extra if they are late in fetching their children? . How safe is the outdoor playing area and what sort of ongoing supervision is there when children are playing outside? . Are any active steps taken to ensure that no bullying takes place? . What happens when it rains? . What sort of security is there on the perimeter of the property? . What is the procedure if someone else needs to drop off or collect the child? Remember that you are the client, you are paying for the service and your child deserves proper care and attention when you are not around. Feel free to visit a few facilities with your child and see where he or she feels most at home. (Source: Health24).

Be a good role model, raise a healthy child favourite food,” advises Melinda Johnson, a registered dietician and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. “At a meal, mix their favourites with what you’re trying to challenge them with.” And don’t give up after the first time your child rejects a food. “Don’t force them [to eat it], but keep offering it to them,” says Sutherland. “You might have to [offer] new things eight times before a kid will eat it.” ) Follow the “Rule of Three” At each meal, try to include at least three of the following food groups from the food pyramid: grains, vegetables, fruits, milk, meat or beans. A snack can consist of two food groups. ) Make grocery shopping a fun learning experience Let young children pick out their favourite fruits; older kids can learn maths concepts, like finding the best value or comparing nutrition labels. ) Involve kids in the kitchen Letting your children help with the cooking can give them a better understanding of food, notes Sutherland.

In a recent study, 120 children between 2 and 6 years old, were invited to “shop” for play food in a play grocery store stocked with everything from fruits and vegetables to sodas and junk food. What did the kids purchase? The same stuff they see their parents buying and eating. “Parents need to be aware that the choices they make do have an impact on their kids, and kids start to learn food behaviours and patterns at a very early age,” says study leader Dr Lisa Sutherland of the Hood Center for Children and Families at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire. To raise a child who grows up loving broccoli and whole grains, consider the following: ) Be a good role model Let them see you eating wholegrain toast at breakfast, enjoying a piece of fruit for a snack and filling up on veggies at dinner. If you can’t give up your cookies and soda, try to eat them when the kids are in bed and keep them out of sight. ) Combine favourites with the unfamiliar “Don’t just always serve their

Rotary Club hosts anniversary dinner The Helderberg Rotary Club celebrated 30 years of existence with an elaborate anniversary dinner and award ceremony held at NH The Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West on Friday 10 May. The Helderberg Rotary Club, which takes its name from the Helderberg mountain overlooking Somerset West and its surrounding areas, was chartered on 17 May 1983. The Helderberg Rotary Club took this opportunity to celebrate its success which started from the humble beginnings of 32 Rotarians, one of whom is still a member. Now, the club enjoys a membership of 36 members and two honorary members.

Gannick and Marie Ogiela celebrated their wedding anniversary on the same day as the Helderberg Rotary Club celebrated 30 years of existence.

The red tape covering their mouths symbolised the silence of children who have fallen prey to sexual abuse.

March in silence to raise awareness of child abuse On Thursday 9 May, Strand area experienced momentary darkness as Mondeor Eco School pupils descended on Beach Road clothed completely in black. In an attempt to create community awareness around child sexual abuse, the Grade 11 pupils, with the help of their teachers, planned a silent march down Beach Road from the Strand Jetty down to the water slides at Water World. The initiative came about after the Grade

11 pupils completed their prescribed book, Roepman. According to one of the teachers, the pupils were quite disturbed by the theme of the book which was based on child sexual abuse and therefore decided on an awareness march. The purpose of the march was to make the community aware of the reality of child sexual abuse taking place around us, to encourage the victims of these acts to speak out and lastly to send a message to all perpetrators of child sexual abuse that it will not be tolerated.

Farewell Joe de Smidt – RIP Joe de Smidt passed away suddenly on 21 April leaving behind his wife Barbara, daughters Gail Gould and Penny Bentley, and granddaughter Sasha Bentley. Born in Durban in 1925, Joe was one of the first long board surfers at Addington beach where he also enjoyed fishing. His wife Barbara won many ballroom dancing championships in the Durban City hall in the 1940’s. Joe taught at Maritzburg College for many years before retiring to Somerset West where he then became involved with Southey’s Vines craft market, selling his finely crafted wooden toys, breadboards and gabled towel rails. He was well known for his chatty nature and positive attitude and will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

"USINESS -!),

Ferrari koors hardloop hoog in die Strand GERHARD DE JAGER HELDERBERG SAKEKAMER Die Helderberg Sakekamer bedank die Strand-gemeenskap vir die terugvoering na die vorige artikel oor die toestand van die Strand se strandfront. Volgens kommunikasiebeampte Gerhard de Jager, is die sakekamer oorval met meer e-posse, sms’e en oproepe as wat hulle kon voorspel. “Dit is fantasties om te sien hoe passievol die Strand se sakemanne en inwoners is oor hulle dorp. Die terugvoer was geweldig positief van aard, die gemeenskap besef dat as hulle nie self betrokke raak nie, dan sal niks gebeur nie,” het hy gesê. Na ’n in-diepte gesprek tussen die sakekamer en Grant Goodwin van Friedman en Cohen, was die gevolgtrekking dat die Special Rating Area-projek reeds afgeskop het en dat die wiele reeds draai om gebou eienaars, ongeveer honderd en vyf-

tig van hulle saam te snoer om die Strand se sakekern te beveilig en te vernuwe. Die projek word deur Gene Lohrentz van Geocontric Information Systems bestuur. Besoek www.cityimprovement.co.za/strand vir meer inligting oor hoe die projek die gemeenskap gaan raak. “Wat die Straatmark aanbetref is die Strand in vir ’n besonderse bederf. Julie maand word die eerste sooie gespit vir ’n nuwe moderne straatmark fasiliteit waarop ons kan trots wees,” spog De Jager. Hy sê verder dat daar ook organisasies soos die Helderberg Vroue Kring is, wat aangebied het om ’n moontlike projek aan te pak om die Strand-treinstasie te verfraai om verbruikers se reis ondervinding op te kikker. “Kom ons kry al die Strand se probleme in ’n publieke gespreksforum sodat ons dit een vir een kan hanteer.” Stuur enige voorstelle, klagtes en raad aan De Jager by navrae@sakekamer.org.za of 082 922 2024.

In ’n vorige artikel van Gerhard de Jager, beskryf hy die pier in Kusweg, Strand as ’n “twispunt en ’n onooglike gevaar vir mens en dier”.

Most people already understand how they earn an income from cash, which is simply the interest rate payable by the bank. The interest received is fully taxable excluding the first R23 800 per year for those under the age of 65 and R34 500 for those 65 and older. Bonds are a little more complicated in that investors not only earn an income from interest, but can also generate a potential gain or loss of capital – but this is beyond the scope of this article.

What is important is that there is no growth on interest income. If you recall from the two previous articles both shares and property are able to grow their income and it is this growth in income, which drives capital growth. Annual inflationary income growth from a cash and /or bond investment will need to come from capital, which erodes the capital base. An investor requiring an income from capital must expose the portfolio to shares, property, bonds and cash in order to ensure inflation-linked income for life. The following investments observations provide guidelines for constructing a portfolio: 1) Each client needs to plan for a range of lifestyle events that require cash. 2) In order to achieve these objectives each client’s investment port-

folio needs to earn a real rate of return (that is a return above inflation). 3) Risk is a function of time. 4) Investment time horizons are determined by cash-flow needs and financial plans are an aggregation of time horizons. 5) The longer the investment horizon the greater the capacity for risk. 6) Systematic and dynamic risk management must be applied to shortening investment time horizons. Or in plain English you need to match your future income and expenses requirements with how your portfolio is invested on a risk/ return time-horizon basis. If this still doesn’t make sense then speak to a certified financial planner and ensure that your current assets will match your future liabilities. In other words you won’t run out of money!

Hoërskool Strand se VOCA-revuespan.

Hoërskool Strand hou kultuuraand Die Hoërskool Strand se jaarlikse kultuuraand word môre (Vrydag) en Saterdag 18 Mei by die skool gehou. Twee toneelstukke en ’n lewendige sang- en dansvertoning deur die splinternuwe revuespan, VOCA, beloof om die gehoor waarde vir hul geld te gee. Die regie vir die toneelstuk, Die Fynproewer, wat voorgeskryf is vir graad 11-leerlinge, word deur ’n graad 12-dramaleerling, Dian Marcovecchio, behartig. Hoërskool Strand is trots op Dian wat vanjaar sy regisseurseksamen vir die praktiese komponent van sy vak doen. Die toneelstuk wat deur die seniors opgevoer

Dit is die boodskap wat Hoërskool Parel Vallei (PV) se skoolhoof, Ettienne Gouws, aan ouers en kinders wat hul hoërskoolloopbaan moet begin en self nog deur die aansoekproses moet gaan, wil oordra. Hoërskool Parel Vallei het vanjaar groot druk weens ’n toevloei van aansoeke ervaar – baie meer as vantevore. In die verlede kon PV slegs 230 graad 8-leerlinge aanvaar. In 2012 het PV egter sewe ekstra klaskamers bygekry. Aan die einde van 2011 is die skool deur die WesKaapse onderwysdepartement (WKOD) genader om as suksesvolle skool hul deure wyer oop te maak, sodat meer leerlinge baat kan vind deur by hulle in te skryf. Nou, met genoeg plek vir 260 graad 8-leerlinge, het die skool in 2012 altesaam ongeveer 420 aansoeke ontvang vir die akademiese jaar van 2013. Ongeveer 160 leerlinge moes dus noodgedwonge weggewys word. In 2013 lyk die prentjie vir 2014 nie veel anders. In hierdie stadium het daar reeds 420 aansoeke ingekom en word daar nog veel meer verwag tot die einde van die jaar wanneer aansoeke altyd ontvang word van mense wat verhuis. “Om teleurstelling te voorkom, is dit juis waarom ons die publiek maan om betyds by skole aansoek te doen en ook om by meer as een skool in die omgewing ’n aansoekvorm in te handig,” het Gouws verduidelik. Verder word daar ook opgemerk dat die publiek moontlik onseker is oor aansoekprosedures en hoe dit werk. Dus moet die sewe onderstaande stappe gevolg word om suksesvol die aansoeken keuringsproses te voltooi:

. Stap 1: Woon skole waarin jy belangstel se opedae by. ’n Opedag is ’n wonderlike geleentheid om ’n indruk van die skool te kry. Tydens die inligtingsessies word belangrike inligting gekommunikeer en word daar ook gefokus op die skool se sterk punte wat hom differensieer van ander. Klem word ook gelê op die vakkeuse waaruit Graad 8’s moet kies, en sport en kultuur aktiwiteite word ook uitgelig. Dokumentasie: aansoekvorms, belangrike beleide en skoolreëls word uitgegee. . Stap 2: Voltooi die aansoekvorm volledig en handig dit voor die sluitingsdatum in (wat 9 Mei was), saam met afskrifte van die volgende dokumente: Geboortesertifikaat of ID-dokument van leerling en beide ouers; twee paspoortfoto’s; jongste rapport; getekende ooreenkoms (oor gedragskode en skoolreëls); en bewys van woonadres. . Stap 3: Bespreek ’n onderhoud met die skoolhoof by die ontvangsdame as jy jou aansoekvorm kom inhandig. . Stap 4: Die keuringsproses vind daarna plaas en word gedoen op grond van verskeie kriteria, onder andere ’n volledige verslag van die leerling se huidige laerskool. . Stap 5: Voor die derde kwartaal sal suksesvolle leerlinge skriftelik of per e-pos in kennis gestel word dat hulle toelating gekry het. . Stap 6: By aanvaarding van ’n plek by Parel Vallei is ’n R500 bevestigingsfooi betaalbaar. (Dit vorm deel van die volgende jaar se skoolgeld). . Stap 7: In Oktober sal die suksesvolle leerlinge dan genooi word na ’n inligtingsessie waartydens alle relevante inligting m.b.t handboeke, skryfboeke en skooluniform deur gegee word.

Versterk só jou aansoek Die toneelspelers van Die Fynproewer. word, is ’n epiese werk uit die pen van skrywer-regisseur Louie de Necker. Hierdie werk met heelwat verrassingselemente handel oor die sinloosheid van wraak. Verrigtinge begin stiptelik om 19:00. Kaartjies sal teen R50 elk by die deur te koop wees.

Raad aan laerskoolleerlinge wat aansoek moet doen by hoërskole: ) Pas jou reputasie op – dis jou toegangskaartjie vir die hoërskool aangesien ’n volledige verslag van die laerskool ontvang word. ) Wees betrokke by alle fasette van jou laerskool. Tydens toelating word daar gekyk na gedrag, akademiese prestasie, asook sport- en kul-

tuurdeelname. Parel Vallei bedank alle gr. 7-leerlinge en ouers wat hul opedag bygewoon en belangstelling getoon het in die skool. “Aan al die voornememde Parel Valleiers van 2014: PV sien uit daarna om julle te ontvang tydens die inligtingsessie in Oktober, en mag julle sommer van die intrapslag al tuis en trots voel om deel te wees van die skool.”

Die HHH-trompoppies Nabeelah Rhoda, leidster van die Hoërskool Hottentots-Holland trompoppies, het onlangs die eerste plek as binnemuurse leidster tydens die WP trompoppie-kampioenskappe gewen. Haar span het die derde plek behaal. Die span sal tydens die Junie-vakansie aan dié nasionale kompetisie in Polokwane deelneem. ’n Dans, ter fondsinsameling, word op 31 Mei in die skool se aktiwiteitsentrum gehou. Bel Karen Verster by 021 852 1405, vir nadere inligting.

GUEST SPEAKER: André Wagner, National Organisational Development Manager of the Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa, was the guest speaker at an Ascension Day service held at Hottentots-Holland High School last week. From the left are Marcel de Ridder (teacher and former pupil), Zoë Chetty (Grade 9 pupil), Wagner and Marinus van Wyk (teacher).

Care­givers on receiving end Earlier this week Vergelegen Mediclinic celebrated International Nurses Day, which honours the valuable role nursing staff fulfil in society.

Mediclinic managers who joined in the celebrations are at the back, from the left Penelope Barrie (Training and Development), Melody Ziervogel (Unit Manager: MC Strand), Maria Payne (Unit Manager: Cardiology & Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Units), Magda van Wyk (Unit Manager: Cardiology), AB Jacobs (Deputy Nursing Manager: General), Edith Tomboer (Unit Manager: Orthopaedics), Dr Roy Donald (Anaesthetist), Linda Potgieter (Deputy Nursing Manager: Theatre), Wendy Matthews (Unit Manager: Intensive Care), Tamara Bosch (Unit Manager: Medical), Lorraine Maloy (Unit Manager: Surgical) and Belinda Carolus (Unit Manager: Gynaecology and Maternity).

An air of excitement prevailed at the private hospital as nursing manager Carla Petersen was named the winner of the Nursing Excellence Award this Monday. Mediclinic Vergelegen also participated in the Evolabs/Bio-Oil Florence Nightingale Award initiative. This initiative supports and celebrates nursing staff as their unsung heroes. Competition was tough with entries flocking in from across South Africa, and yet Mediclinic Vergelegen and Strand joined the top ranks when two of their nurses, Jacqueline Pietersen (Mediclinic Vergelegen, maternity unit) and senior professional nurse Melody Ziervogel (Mediclinic Strand, unit manager) were amongst the winners.

Professional Nurse Naomi Müller (third from left) was awarded the Nursing Excellence Award. Photographed with her are from left Carla Petersen (Nursing Manager, Mediclinic Vergelegen), Estelle Jordaan (Nursing Executive, Mediclinic Southern Africa) and Wendy Matthews (Unit Manager: Intensive Care). .

DIE SPAN: Hoërskool Strand se gholfspan is Deib Germishuys, Rohan van der Merwe, Elmo Barnard en Marcel Geldenhuys.

Hoërskool Strand se gholfspelers het tydens die jaarlikse KeNako-skolegholftoernooi weer eens die eer gehad om hul stokke op drie gesogte bane – Oubaai, George en Kingswood – te swaai. Deon Germishuys het op die eerste dag die Oubaai-baan oorwin deur ’n kolhou op die veertiende gat aan te teken. Dit was egter Elmo Barnard wat met ’n telling van 72 die tweede plek in die individuele afdeling ingeneem het. Ten spyte van die gure weer op George die volgende dag het Elmo daarin geslaag om die tweede plek met ’n telling van 73 te behou.

Kingswood se vinnige setperke het die spelers op die derde dag behoorlik laat les opsê, maar Elmo het steeds daarin geslaag om met ’n telling van onder 70 in die nek van die voorloper te blaas. Met slegs twee houe agter die wenner het hy ’n algehele tweede plek vir die toernooi behaal. Hoërskool Strand se A-span het ’n welverdiende vyfde plek uit 18 deelnemende spanne behaal, terwyl die B-span ’n ewe goeie sesde plek behaal het. Elmo, gr. 11, is ook in die o.19 WPspan, wat van 10 tot 12 Mei aan die Triangular Tournament op Riversdal deelgeneem het, opgeneem. Die span het teen Boland en SWD te staan gekom.

Goldy in SA team for World Cup Well known Somerset West paracyclist Goldy Fuchs has been included in the South African paracycling team to compete in two Union Cycling International (UCI) World Cup events during June in Italy and Spain. Goldy was selected for the team after excellent performances during the National paracycling championships in Oudtshoorn on 19 and 20 April. At these championships he won a silver medal in the time trial and a gold in the road race. This is the third time that Goldy has been crowned the SA T2 (tricycle) paracycling road-racing champion and the third year he is riding in the elite class. The UCI road World Cup events will be held in Merano, Italy on 7 – 9 June and in Segovia, Spain from 14 – 16 June. Goldy said he is looking forward to representing his country overseas and to be competing against

top international competitors. He added that if he did well at the UCI World Cup he could go to the World Championships in Canada in September. “I feel confident, strong and well prepared and believe that I will make my country proud in Italy and Spain. Goldy is currently studying at the Exercise Teaching Academy in Stellenbosch and is training hard for the forthcoming races. He trains six times a week under the guidance of Ben Capostagno (cycling) and Graham Bentz (conditioning) at the Sport Science Institute of SA in Newlands which is made possible by the Macsteel Maestros programme. He thanked his coaches and his mother Janine for their support and belief in him. On Saturday 11 May Goldy competed in and won the 21.1km Hermanus Wheels and Runners race. He was the overall winner of the tri-cycle race as well as the winner in his category.

Strand cut Silvertree down to size

BRADSHAW CUP WINNERS: The team from Strand Golf Club were the winners of the Bradshaw Cup played at the Milnerton Golf Club on 11 and 12 May. This famous foursomes tournament is played on a knock-out format at a different course each year. The tournament started in 1918 and was played up until 1995, then reinstated in 2011. Since then Strand have been in the finals three times, but this is the first year they have won since 1918. The Strand team played against WP Defence Force and Simon’s Town in the first round and the second round against Durbanville, Westlake and Milnerton. The happy winners are (from left) Michael-James Steyn, Donovan Liddicoat, Chris van der Merwe and Gideon van der Vyver.

Strand Rugby Club got back into their winning ways, much to the delight of their loyal supporters, when they thrashed Silvertree 53-12 in their rugby match played at the Gustrouw Sport Grounds on Saturday. Silvertree simply had no answer to the speed of the local backline and conceded 32 points in the first half. They did, however, score an unconverted try courtesy of their captain and number 8, just before the halftime break. The trend continued in the second half with the home team

scoring a further 21 points. One has to commend the visitors for not giving up and in the end they scored a well-worked converted try. It’s difficult to give a single Strand player an accolade, but debutante flyhalf André Centry and the ever-present centre Cleven Hoffman really excelled on the day. For Strand tries were scored by Cleven Hoffman (2), Dylan Moses, Zhaun Booysen, Dimitri Hendrickse and André Centry. Juan Keet converted six tries and two penalties.

Struisbaai and Uilenkraalsmond produce fish aplenty During the last ten years targeting belman has become a popular facet of fishing from the shore. In the early days belman (also known as baardman or tasselfish) were regarded as deep-sea fish and only seldom did one hear of a belman caught from the shore. In False Bay trek fishing was the demise of many shoals of this specie as they were often mistaken for kob. The scientific name for belman is Umbrina Capensis. The flesh of this fish makes good eating and can also be pickled. These fish are caught all along our coastline from Muizenberg and past Knysna. They are found in the shallows where there are sand-prawn or worms such as bloodworm and moonshine worm along the beaches and estuaries at Strandfontein, Macassar and Strand beaches.

The belman shoals frequent the shallow waters where there are prawn and worm holes. While hovering over the holes they dip the little fleshy tassel which is just under the chin – the fish has the ability to form a funnel with its lips pointing straight downward without changing its body, immediately sucking the prawn into his throat. Light tackle, small hooks and fresh prawn or worm baits are used when fishing into the shallow water in the surf. The light line is left limp with a slack in the line. The belman are only felt when they dart off with the bait and the line becomes taught causing a movement in your rod. If handled gently they give a good fight and are seldom lost. While fishing off Struisbaai plaat using worm from the area Mias de Fratos, an angler who fishes the plaat regularly, and Mark Wake-

field of Gordon’s Bay caught a 4 kg and 8 kg belman. He told me he caught and released quite a number of smaller fish as well. Mark mentioned they were also catching white steenbras from 4 kg to 8 kg on prawn, bloodworm and fresh red bait. He said that at times there were plenty of dassie that were also caught by a number of anglers also fishing on the plaat. During last week a number of kob of up to 8 kg were taken on live bait at De Mond at the plaat. Wessel van Deventer, a Strand angler caught a magnificent musselcracker of 15 kg at Uilenkraals mond recently.

Arno de Villiers, who accompanied him, also caught a musselcracker of 7 kg. They used red bait and were targeting galjoen. At the end of last week quite a number of small yellowtail (malkoppies) were boated near the Point. Professional boatmen Tommy Fraser and crew had 150 yellowtail and katonkel aboard. Last Thursday Steven Truter, on holiday from Holland, was successful in boating a 50 kg and 60 kg yellowfin tunny while spinning. He also bagged a 30 kg longfin. Steven will be remembered as one of the Strand’s top shore anglers who was somewhat of a fishing Guru even from a very

young age. The Atlantic Boat Club based in Hout Bay had a good competition last Saturday. Most of the competing boats caught longfin and yellowfin tunny during the duration of the event. Pieter Eksteen boated a 99 kg yellowfin, which was the best fish in the competition. The second best fish was a 92 kg yellowfin tuna. Fishing for tunny 25 – 30 miles off Cape Point a number of Gordon’s Bay Boat Club members were also successful catching tunny. Anyone wanting to arrange a tunny fishing trip phone South Sea Safaris or phone Alan du Plessis on 021 853 3532 or email: alan@southseasafaris.co.za For all your reel repairs and services phone Art on 021 854 3831.

Brendan Venter (jnr) is Sports Star of the month JAMEY THOMAS All-round sports star Brendan Venter (13) from Strand, who shows talent in multiple sports, has earned April’s DistrictMail Let’s Play Sports Star of the month award. Brendan is the son of former Springbok rugby star and doctor, Bredan Venter, and seems to be following in his dad’s footsteps. The grade 7 Somerset House pupil participates and excels in several different sport codes, namely athletics, rugby, hockey, tennis, swimming and cricket. Much like Breyton Poole, who is grade 7 at Somerset West Primary and earned DistrictMail Let’s Play Sports Star of the year for 2012 by also being an all-round sportsman. This year Brendan was selected to represent three regional teams in athletics: the Helderberg regional team for 800 m and 1 500 m; the Metropole regional team for the 800 m and 1 500 m; and the Western Province regional team for the 1 500 m. He was also selected for the Helderberg u.13 cricket and rugby teams. Brendan is still participating in the WP rugby and hockey trials. He made the cut for the WP hockey team, however, whether he was selected for the rugby team, only time can tell. He will continue with trials for another week before team squads are announced. Brendan is also an avid swimmer and tennis player who participates in galas and tournaments as a member of the school’s first teams. If it wasn’t for cricket keeping him busy, he would have participated in the tennis tri-

als as well. Amongst his list of achievements for 2012 are: Athletics – Helderberg regional, Metropole East, and the Western Province teams for 1 200 m. Rugby – Helderberg and Western Province u.12 teams. Hockey – Helderberg u.13 team. The young sportsman does not have a strict training routine, but it’s quite a busy one. In the athletics season, Brendan trains for 45 minutes every second day by focusing on sprints. According to him by focusing solely on sprints helps perfect his middle- and longdistance running skills. It also keeps him focused and fit for the other sports in which he participates. Brendan sets aside Monday afternoons for

cricket practice sessions with his dad. Together they’ll toss some balls and work on Brendan’s batting skills. Since they have a 10x13 m hockey astro turf at home, hockey practices happen at any time. He also has regular private hockey practices once or twice a week. With rugby it’s easy. Brendan perfects his rugby talent by learning the necessary skills from his dad. “My dad helps with my coaching, and I learn a lot through his past experiences on and off the field,” smiled Brendan, who takes pride in being recognised as the world famous rugby star Brendan Venter’s son. Although Brendan regularly delivers sterling performances in a variety of sports, his passion lies with his favourite sport – rugby. “Although I’ll have to decide which sport I’ll be focusing on later in high school, I would love to become a professional rugby player and doctor just like my dad,” said Brendan. He is encouraged to put in the hours of practice for sport but also reminded by his dad that education comes first. Fortunately for Brendan he is also academically strong. Brendan regards it important to open oneself to all sporting codes, as he did, to experience what all sport codes have to offer while at primary school. “This way, you can craft your talent and find out with which sport your passion lies while you have the time. I did it because I like a challenge and every sport teaches me something new every time,” said Brendan, who believes it is simply a bonus that he does so well in all sports.

Pines win physical contest against Whistling Wheels

Strand Pioneers management and coaches received kits from Puma SA. Seen here (back, form left) are, Shamiel Railoun, Francios Swanepoel, Faizel Railoun, Moeiez Daggia, Ikraam Wentzel, Nazeem Gabier and Abdullah Aziz; (front) Adiel Davids, Faiz Davids, Taariq van der Ross, Gamiet Daniels and Anwar Josephs.

Even though it turned out to be their stiffest test yet, Strand Pioneers defeated neighbours Whistling Wheels from Eerste River by 29-24 on Saturday. Wheels were highly motivated for the match and scored first via a penalty by flyhalf Selestian Maroon. Pines were not going to stand back, although they were being overshadowed in the loose rucks, and came back strongly with a converted try (7-3). Wheel’s strong interplay and cleaning of the rucks led to them scoring their first try that was converted by Maroon (10-7).

Another monster derby awaits Raithby this weekend This weekend Raithby Universals host Stellenbosch Coronations in another huge and anxiously awaited derby. These clubs have never met in a league encounter before and a big crowd is expected. In other news, Sir Lowrians and Strand Pioneers are still unbeaten and Macassar did well to get their first victory of the season (as predicted). This week’s fixtures are: Helderberg vs Bellville (away) Berge should have a target to get at least a point out this match, and with them blowing hot and cold, they are due to be hot this weekend. Prediction: Berge to win by 5. St Georges vs Pniel Villagers (Gustrouw) Lulus were very unlucky to lose last week and will want to make up for this at home. Pniel are also very inconsistent and unpredictable and shouldn’t be too much of a threat for St Georges. Prediction: St Georges to win by 8 or more. Sir Lowrians vs Rangers (Surrey Estate) Rangers will be highly motivated for this game, but do come off a loss against Collegians. Rangers would also have noticed that Scottsdene scored plenty against the Navy Train. Sir Lowrians on the other hand

wouldn’t be too fazed by the initial hype posed by Rangers. Prediction: Navy Train to win by 15. Macassar vs Kraaifontein (Macassar) The Mac boys should be feeling relieved after their first win of the season, but now face second-placed Kraaie. The only chance Macassar have of taking this one is to remind Kraaie that they are not playing at home...and do so early. Prediction: Macassar to lose by 10. Strand United vs Langa (Abattoir) With coach Shamiel Boer resigning last week, United will have to pull things together under a new coach. With only one win in six it’s not looking too good, but its nothing the club hasn’t yet seen. Prediction: Langa to win by 7 or more. Strand vs Milnerton (Theo Marais Park) Milnerton are currently second placed in the league and Strand will have a tough time on Saturday. Prediction: Strand to lose by 9 or more. Raithby Universals vs Stellenbosch Coronations This is definitely the fixture of the week. Raithby have been in devastating form playing at home and should be the favourites to win this game. All Saints vs Watsonia (Athlone)

All Saints should target 5 points out of this game against a team that haven’t yet won this season. Prediction: All Saints to win by 12 or more. Strand Pioneers vs Young Ideas (Langa) Pines are looking good thus far, but lost twice to Young Ideas last year. Prediction: Pioneers to win by 12 or more. All Saints will be hosting a golf day on Sunday (2 June) at the Somerset West golf course. The entry fee is R1 000 per 4 ball. With our region doing well over the years with players representing the Union, it is great to report that we are also doing well in the administrative and coaching departments. Myself and Myneve Swartland (St Georges) are both on the relations committee, with Riedwaan Hassiem (Strand United) on the disciplinary committee, Reuben Riffel (St Georges) on the top executive, Deon Isaacs (St Georges) as WP Disa selector and Ricki Petersen (Helderberg) as the WP sevens coach.

For large periods of the match it was great physical rugby with Wheels winning most of the challenges to lead 16-10 at the break. The first 15 minutes after half time it was, however, all Pioneers as they scored two converted tries to lead with 24-16 and half an hour remaining. With Eugene Pieterse scoring the bonus point try for Pines to lead with 29-16, one would have thought the match would fizzle out, but Wheels came back strongly to make the score 29-24 with two minutes remaining. Fortunately, good defence by Pines secured their sixth successive bonus point victory.

HARTKLOP VAN DIE HELDERBERG

RUGBY: SUPER LEAGUE

H’berg improve, but still lose Helderberg upped their game considerably in their Super League A clash against Durbanville/Bellville at the Charles Morkel Stadium on Saturday, but it was not enough for a win and they lost 29-21. This result means that the thirdon-the-log visitors remain in third spot and Helderberg in eighth position. Durb-Bell started off dramatically by scoring their first try in the second minute (7-0). Helderberg responded with a try of their own. Hooker Zane Raimondi found himself in a scrumhalf situation from which he cleared the ball to centre Lyle Gelant, who fed full back Morné Cooper, who in turn passed to Raimondi for a super try. Cooper slotted the easy conversion (7-7). Durb-Bell forwards mauled over the line for the next converted try (14-7) before the break and the home team again drew level. Fullback Cooper fielded a defensive kick, passed to Raimondi, who passed to centre Siviwe Magaba, who switched with his fellow centre Gelant, who scored under the posts. Cooper again converted to take the half-time score to 14-14. After the break the visitors shad-

ed Helderberg somewhat and during this period added 12 points through two tries and a conversion (26-14). Helderberg however came back into the game with a strong onslaught on the Durb-Bell line. From a driving maul scrumhalf Armien Bailey broke and passed to captain and lock-forward De Wet Neethling who romped over the line. Cooper converted (2621). Durb-Bell surged into Helderberg territory and was awarded a penalty, which they kicked to the corner. A second penalty was awarded and this time their flyhalf took the shot (29-21). Then, with time running out and play on the halfway line, Bailey just missed an interception, which if successful, would have meant two bonus points from the game. Sadly, this was not to be. Outstanding in this match was Bailey and flanker Andri Blom. Players who also deserve a mention are Neethling, Gelant and the utility back James Amm. The team performed well all round, which augurs well for the remaining matches. Helderberg also played Maties at the Craven Stadium on Wednesday.

) This weekend’s fixtures are as follows: • Friday: the match between the Helderberg’s u.20 B-team and

UWC’s B-team will start at 19:00 on home territory; and Crusaders (fourth team) take on False Bay in an away game at 19:30.

• Saturday: Helderberg’s 1, 2, 3 and u.20 teams will battle it out in an away game against Bellville. The main game will commence at 16:00.
