voer oorlog DIE gemeenskap van die Strand loop tans kwaai deur onder bendegeweld wat sedert die naweek daar woed. Dié geweld het begin toe Selwyn Cupido (32) van Broadlands Park in die Strand, Sondag in die vroeë oggendure geskiet is. Cupido en ’n groep vriende was na bewering op die betrokke aand by die Legendsnagklub in die Gants-sentrum. ’n Geveg het tussen hulle en ’n groep ander mans, vermoedelik lede van die 28’s-bende, uitgebreek. Cupido het tussenbeide getree en die

bendelede het die klub verlaat. Cupido en sy vriende is omstreeks 05:00 by die klub weg. Volgens ooggetuies het Cupido eers ’n draai om gebou gestap, voordat hy in die taxi geklim het, omdat hy ’n slegte voorgevoel gehad het. Twee motors het aangery gekom en op die taxi met 15 passasiers begin skiet. Cupido is vyf keer geskiet en is na ’n hospitaal gejaag, waar hy gesterf het. Volgens die polisie is nege koeëldoppies op die toneel gevind. Lees meer op bladsy 2.

Man vir tweede keer in hegtenis geneem ABRAHAM Hartzenberg (48) van Macassar is op 25 November vir ’n tweede keer vandeesmaand deur die Macassar-polisie in hegtenis geneem. Sy mees onlangse inhegtenisname volg nadat hy die voorwaardes op ’n hof beskermingsbevel oorskry het en sy vervreemde vrou gedreig het. Die eerste saak teen Hartzenberg spruit

uit ’n voorval op Vrydag 11 November toe hy die huis in Comelysingel, waar sy vervreemde vrou en drie kinders woon, na bewering aan die brand gesteek het. Hartzenberg se borg van R1 000 is teruggetrek. Sy volgende verhoor met betrekking tot die gesinsgeweld-klag is Maandag 5 Desember en hy sal op 23 Maart vir brandstigting in die hof verskyn.

NEWS SUMMARY

1B67U259W.pdf

THE Strand community are fearing for their lives as violence, allegedly gang-related, erupted on the streets this past weekend. The violence started in the early hours of Sunday morning, when Selwyn Cupido (32), a drug dealer from Broadlands Park in Strand, was gunned down in a taxi outside Legends night club in Gants Centre. According to eyewitnesses, an argument broke out inside the club between Cupido and his friends, a group of “Rastafarians” known as the A-Team, and a gang known as the 28s. This incident is believed to be linked to an attempted murder two weeks ago, when a 19-year-old boy was pulled from a taxi and stabbed in the back six times. It is said that the boy was Cupido’s taxi guard. This past Monday, a man in his thirties, believed to be a member of the 28s, was attacked by about 50 people thought to be affiliated with the A-Team. He was stabbed with various sharp objects and shot several times. Police are investigating a case of murder and attempted murder respectively. At this stage they cannot confirm a link between the incidents, or whether they were gang-related.

Man se lyk gevind

Appollis kry 20 jaar

’n GEREGTELIKE nadoodse ondersoek is geopen ná die lyk van ’n 32-jarige Macassar-man Vrydag in sy motorhuis in Sheik Yusufstraat gekry is, waar dit van die dak gehang het.

DELIAH BRINKHUIS LIONEL Appollis (30) is Vrydag (25 November) 20 jaar gevangenisstraf opgelê vir die moord op sy voormalige vriendin, Felecia Jantjies (26), op 7 Januarie. Volgens ’n voor-vonnisverslag van Nicolette van Graan van die departement van maatskaplike dienste, het Appollis na bewering die dag van die moord aan ’n familielid gesê dat hy Felecia dié dag “vrek” gaan maak. Streeklanddros Franceline Mouton het in haar vonnisoplegging in die Strandstreekshof gesê dat die maksimum vonnis van lewenslange gevangenisstraf nie oorweeg kon word nie, omdat getuienis oor dié beweerde dreigement van Appollis nooit in die hof gelewer is nie. Myrtle Jantjies, Felecia se ma en Felecia se negejarige seun Matéo, en inwoners van Temperance Town was by die hof. Mouton het Appollis ’n lafaard genoem wat ’n ongewapende vrou in die rug gesteek het en geen respek vir vroue het nie. Appollis het Jantjies na bewering die aand van die moord ingewag toe sy van haar werk by die destydse Friendly Grocer gekom het. Hy het Felecia herhaaldelik met ’n skerp

voorwerp, vermoedelik ’n mes, gesteek. Sy het kort daarna in ’n vriendin se huis gesterf. Volgens Mouton het die patologiese verslag aangedui dat die aanval só geweldadig was dat een van Jantjies se ribbes gebreek was. Mouton het gesê dat Appollis reeds toe hy Jantjies vasgegryp het die voorwaardes van die interdik wat sy in 2010 teen hom verkry het, verontagsaam het. Hy het ná die moord op die vlug geslaan en die polisie in die twee en ’n half maande voor sy inhegtenisneming, ontduik. Hy is uiteindelik op Menseregtedag (21 Maart) in Melrose Place in Grabouw in hegtenis geneem, nadat die gemeenskap hom aangekeer het en só erg aangerand het dat sy regterarm gebreek is. Appollis het vir die duur van die saak volgehou om onskuldig te pleit . Sy regsverteenwoordiger, Samantha Stanley, het aangedui dat haar kliënt reeds voor sy vonnisoplegging aangedui het dat hy teen die vonnis sal appelleer. Appollis verskyn op 7 Desember weer in die Somerset-Wes-landdroshof. Dié keer op ’n klag van aanranding. Die saak hou verband met die aanval op ’n Gordonsbaai-inwoner Roy McGregor by Knorhoek op 14 Maart.

Drugs dragged from the village TIK amounting to about R6 000 on the street was confiscated in Sir Lowry’s Pass on Saturday. A 34-year-old man from the village was arrested and charged in connection with the find. The arrest was made amid a series of raids at farms, smallholdings, and shebeens in Sir Lowry’s Pass and Garden Village, carried out by a crack team of soldiers

and the Somerset West police. The operations, which form part of a festive-season crime crackdown, will be conducted on a fortnightly basis. Somerset West Police Station’s commander, colonel Mary-Ann Williams, commended the team on their work, and says their visibility resulted in a drop in crime over the weekend.

16 Days of Activism Disabusing the abused IN harmony with the 16 Days of Activism, the Strand police worked to raise awareness about the abuse of women and children when they presented an information session at the Casablanca Community Hall on Tuesday. Lieutenant-colonel Sylvia Johnson explained to those present the dangers of abuse, as well as the legal steps any person who is being abused can take. “Women are vulnerable, and are abused almost every day,” Johnson said. “We have also seen an increase in financial and emotional abuse of women.” She also encouraged men who are being abused to report their cases to the police, going on to say that it is a myth that only women are abused. Speaking after the event, warrant officer Olebogeng Tawana said children are extremely vulnerable to brutal acts of violence, especially at this time of the year. “We urge

the mothers of our community to stop dumping and neglecting their babies,” Tawana said. Asked for his thoughts on the matter, Jannie Frieslaar, chairperson of the Strand Community Policing Forum, said the police are making good progress in getting the community involved.

Denzel Vercuil, a member of the Strand CPF, hands out food to children at the hall.

Tower of hope: By donating just five cents to the Tower of Hope, you will be aiding the fight against abuse of women and children. Work on the tower has started Monday and the organisers plan to build the tower six meters high. The tower is erected at Rola Motors in the Gants Centre to support the 16 Days of Activism from 25 November to 10 December. Coins can be dropped off there, at the offices of the Rape Crisis centre (Patch), and the Vergelegen Spa. Anton Bugler (left), builder of the tower, a picture of concentration.

IN MEMORIAM

The road steals another life

Strand Surf Lifesaving Club chairperson Heinrich Dahms (left) and club member Jacques Steenstra are seen astride the club’s rubber duck, which is used in rescue operations off Strand Beach.

Heed the seaside saviours Dahms says the club’s rubber duck was deployed, and the swimmers were brought safely to shore thanks to the efforts of pilot Jacques Steenstra and crew member Hentis Burger. The third person to be rescued that day was a swimmer who had overestimated his abilities and got into difficulty 400 m offshore. The same lifeguards shot back out on the rubber duck and pulled him to safety. Speaking with pride of his team, Dahms says, “Our club is built on the efforts of committed volunteers

who are trained to save lives, and the public’s support is vital.” He thanks Dis-Chem for its ongoing support in sponsoring medical supplies, and Honda Marine for providing and maintaining the rubber duck’s engine. He also thanks Emergency Medical Operations for their cooperation and support. “As the school holidays approach, I urge everyone on the beaches to yield to the warnings of the lifeguards,” he says.

Walk well, my friend.” On Monday, Darren Hattingh shared this message: “Aidan, you had that rare, special ability to make other people feel good, and I thank you for that. “I will always remember that insane laughter of yours and the way you always saw the lighter side of life. You will always be remembered as ‘The Don’.” Greeff’s family declined to speak to the media.

Parent slams school’s new look NIKITA SYLVESTER A PARENT is beside himself over a decision to introduce a new uniform for the Grade 7 pupils of Lochnerhof Primary School. Now, Hannes Gates says he is thinking of suing the school as he feels his concerns have fallen on deaf ears. Earlier this month the school sent letters to the Grade 6 parents to inform them that the casual school uniform for Grade 7 pupils in 2012 would be replaced by a new, more formal uniform. Gates says that, because his two children only joined the school in May this year, he bought two sets of new uniforms – and now he’ll have to buy another set. “My daughter wore her current school uniform for about half a year; now I am told she needs an entirely new uniform, which she will wear for less than a year. This is totally ridiculous. “When the letter was sent out on 14 November, the Grade 6 pupils were told that, should they not return the signed letter from their parents, their spogkaarte – which they get for good behaviour – would be taken away. When we told our Grade 6 daughter that we would not sign this letter and send it back the next day she cried and cried.”

Gates says Lochnerhof headmaster Marius Botha told him the school’s governing body had decided that, as of next year, the Grade 7 school uniform would change to differentiate Grade 7 pupils from the rest of the school. “Not only is it more cost effective, but the formal uniform also promotes school pride and discipline,” a school press release declares. But, Gates feels, if pupils are not proud of their school by the time they get to Grade 7, a new school uniform will not change anything. He says this decision could not have been made at a worse time of year – just more than a month before Christmas. He adds that he asked Botha to arrange a meeting with all the other Grade 7 parents on the grounds that the decision ought not to be made without the consent of those whose wallets will bear the strain. “Botha responded that it is a very difficult time of the year, with the children in exams and the end of year on our doorstep. This is my exact point – how can one not discuss this with the people it will affect? They have no consideration for the parents.” The school’s press release states that reaction to the decision was mainly positive.

‘...she will wear it for less than a year...’

“The old school uniform can be sold back to the school’s clothing shop, and financial support is available for those parents experiencing financial difficulty,” the release states.

The new school uniform that Grade 7 pupils are expected to wear as of 2012.

Legal action? GATES says a meeting between him and the school’s governing body was scheduled to take place on Monday this week, but the governing body’s chairperson postponed the meeting to Tuesday afternoon so that more information could be gathered. But, Gates says, he was informed on Tuesday morning that the previous day’s meeting had gone ahead. He says he was notified by email that the decision to change the school uniform stood. The school’s governing body apparently agreed to reschedule the meeting with Gates for yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, after DistrictMail’s time of going to press. Gates, who is setting up a petition and still thinking of legal action, asks any parents who feel the same way as he does to call him directly on 0 021 853 4625 or 071 516 3591.

Geweld móét nou end kry MOORD en doodslag vier vandeesweek hoogty binne die Strand-gemeenskap. Met geweld en gru-dade wat vrees by inwoners inboesem, is dié woonbuurt skielik in die Wilde Weste verander. ’n Omvattende ondersoek deur die DistriksPos het bevind dat dwelmhandel en bendebedrywighede wél ’n rol gespeel het. DistriksPos kon ook ’n vermeende verband tussen die mesaanvalle op tieners twee weke gelede by die Somerset Mall en vandeesweek se moorde naspoor. Polisiewoordvoerders bly egter versigtig om dié moontlikhede te erken en hou voet by stuk dat hulle ál die aanvalle as afsonderlike voorvalle ondersoek. Hoewel polisiëring in die Strand opgeskerp is, is dit noodsaaklik dat die ondersoek(e) na ál hierdie aanvalle die hoogste prioriteit geniet. Die werklikheid van bendes wat ongestoord voortgaan met hul bedrywighede kan slegs beveg word indien die polisie én die gemeenskap sáám hul stem dik maak. Druk moet op die owerhede uitgeoefen word om kragte saam te snoer en ’n moontlike verband tussen die voorvalle te ondersoek. Die onus rus egter ook op die gemeenskap om die polisie van inligting te voorsien wat hul tot die waarheid en optrede kan lei. Slegs dán sal die net nouer gespan kan word om hierdie bendes wat ons gemeenskap teister.

ON Tuesday, my son was mugged and relieved of his cellphone whilst walking to school up Bulties Way. Fortunately, some amazing people were there to help (you know who you are), which led to one of the perpetrators being apprehended by the police. As if by magic, all local crime watch organisations, as well as the police, were at the scene within minutes. After his exam, we went down

to Somerset West Police Station to give a statement. I cannot begin to describe what amazingly capable and professional service and support we received whilst there. Many of us would not be able to tolerate what these people have to witness and deal with on a daily basis. Against the odds, they go about their business with efficiency, etiquette and patience. As an added bonus, thanks to the competence of our boys and

girls in blue, my son’s phone was returned to him, and we await a court date. Special thanks to constable Le Roux, detective Lategan and sergeant Karolus. We should all be very grateful and proud of our local police service.

Wie’s die ‘bles omie’ op die trapmeul? IN reaksie op Koos Kombuis se rubriek Dorpskombuis, in die DistriksPos van 25 November wil ek graag die volgende kommentaar lewer. Ek geniet ook my besoeke aan die Virgin Active gimnasium baie. Ek hou veral daarvan om op die trapmeul in die agterste ry te oefen, want dan kan ek die swetende lywe voor my dophou en sien of daar dalk iemand is wat net so stadig soos ek is. Ek is ’n bietjie ouer as jy, maar probeer nog redelik fiks bly. Voorwaar, onlangs sien ek ’n bles omie op die trapmeul in die voorste ry wat stadiger as ek loop.

Ek was nogal nuuskierig om te sien hoe hy van voor lyk. Nou toe nou! Toe hy uitloop merk ek dis sowaar Koos Kombuis sonder die kenmerkende bandanna! Ek het so pas jou boek Die Tyd van die Kombi’s gelees, en daaruit lyk dit vir my of jou leefstyl uit daardie tydperk maar swaar op die lyf was. Die oefening doen wondere vir jou lyf en jou gemoedstoestand, soos jy alreeds uitgevind het. Ek wil graag noem dat ek ook mooi welgeklede dames in die restaurant opmerk wanneer ek my rooibostee gaan drink voordat ek huis toe gaan. Volgens my waarnemings in die aantrekkamer,

blyk dit dat die meeste dames stort, hare was en versorg, hulself grimeer en netjies aantrek voordat hulle die aantrekkamers verlaat om met hulle sosiale lewe voort te gaan. Baie van ons het tydens die aanvanklike bemarkingsveldtog vir ’n baie billike aanbod aangesluit, en word soos jy ook maar gesubsidieer om gesond te bly, en ai, die gimnasium is darem baie gerieflik naby alles, nie waar nie? Dit is dus die ideale plek om vriende wat ook daar oefen in die restaurant te ontmoet. Geniet dit, Koos!

Don’t get the wrong idea about PetPals A FEW weeks ago, a comment was made on Facebook that has possibly been detrimental to a welfare organisation called PetPals. Sadly, this was not the intention. It was merely a reply to a comment made by someone saying that their friend had adopted a puppy from PetPals but it had

to be euthanised. My comment was: “Shame, this happened to another client of ours.” The misunderstanding occurred when it turned out that the puppy had been adopted from another organisation and not PetPals. I have it on good authority that PetPals, run by Dawie and

Thank you so much I’D like to convey my thanks to the wonderful people at Somerset Mall. On 2 November I was walking to Standard Bank from the Woolworth’s entrance and I had a very bad fall on two steps I hadn’t noticed. Security guards were there immediately. A police lady took me across to the bank and insisted I be attended to. When we came away a medic’s car was waiting; my wounds were dressed and I was driven back to my car. My thanks to all of them: they were so kind and compassionate to an elderly pensioner.

Now that’s service IT is rare to get such exceptional service from anyone, let alone a panelbeater. On Friday, on the recommendation of a friend, I phoned De Jongh’s Panelbeating Centre – Dirk de Jongh. I explained the problem we were having with our car door. He immediately asked me to bring the car down at 09:00 on Monday, which I did. He immediately checked the

problem and instructed a staff member to take the car and attend to the problem. My wife and I were offered coffee and asked to wait 15 to 20 minutes. Twenty minutes later, Mr De Jongh personally brought the car to us and, on enquiry about the payment, informed us that it was a small job and there was no charge. Isn’t that great service!

A letter to parents – especially dads HOW far will a father go to protect his daughter? When do you say it’s enough and that she is grown up now? Can I relax when she is 16, 18, 21 or 25? Not so long ago, on 28 June 1994, I held an infant in my arms at Butterworth Hospital. As a first-time father this was an awesome feeling. I nurtured her; this motherly job fell to me because her mother was sick. She was soon a toddler, then a bubbly baby with ribbons on her head, a child, then a young lady. She started school and I remember holding the school fence on her first day. I hang around at the gate, just to see that everything goes well. “Let go, she is doing fine,” said her elementary teacher. Soon she made friends and she was enjoying school. I helped her with school work, prepared food for her, bathed her, tucked her in bed, read stories to her. She told me stories about her friends. She was soon elevated to higher classes and got good grades. She started to discard her toys and dolls and demanded computer games, then a cellphone, iPod and laptop. Before I knew it she was on social networks, Twitter, MXit, Facebook. My little daughter was no more, and a young lady with an inquisitive mind had taken over. It was sad to part ways with my little angel. I was engulfed by mixed emotions (that of excitement and apprehension). Part of me was sad that we won’t play little games any more, but another part was happy that I had seen her grow. Today that little girl is 17 years old, healthy and full of life. I still feel the need to protect her. I still screen her friends, approve some, disapprove others.

The only problem is that she reckons she doesn’t need me to protect her any longer. She thinks she knows all there is to know about life. She thinks I’m over-protective and never forgets to remind me that “this is the 21st century” or an age of new generation. She says my teachings are not relevant to the children’s rights or bill of rights. We are now on a collision course at crossroads. I’m a bit of a traditionalist who doesn’t believe in giving children too many rights while they are still under my care. It is my right to discipline my child if she goes astray, but now she says it’s abuse according to children’s rights, and I’ll be arrested for that. Don’t get me wrong, I am against child abuse in all its manifestations, be it physical, sexual or spiritual. We already have a lot of such young people in our streets. If we cannot punish our children for misdeeds, who will do it for us? When do you stop protecting your young daughter against the vultures who are hovering around to prey on her? All in the name of love? In which language do I tell her about wolves in sheepskin? It’s again that time of the year when all good men and women are leading a campaign against child and women abuse. To my daughter Zizipho and all other young ladies who feel aggrieved by their parents’ guidance and over-protectiveness, I say just a little longer guys, just a little longer. Let us enjoy parenthood while it lasts. Hang in there and it will pay off in the long run.

VAN die oomblik dat Hennie Warnich die mikrofoon verlede Saterdagaand in die Dorpstraat-teater buite Stellenbosch gevat het, het die heilige koeie in die Suid-Afrikaanse samelewing dit ontgeld. Vir Warnich, eienaar van ’n IT-sakeonderneming in die Strand, was sy eenmankomedie-optrede, Hond se Gedagtes, die verwesenliking van ’n jarelange droom om sy eie teks te skryf en dit self op te voer. Die 120 mense aan wie die sitplekke uitverkoop is het sy satiriese optrede aan die einde van anderhalf uur staande toegejuig. Maar agter die aand se pret is daar ’n hartseerstorie van ’n gesin se pyn. Hond se Gedagtes was die begin van ’n veldtog, wat deur Warnich en sy familie geïnisieer is om die lot van kinders wat aan PraderWilli-sindroom (PWS) lei, te verbeter. Sy nefie, Ruan Burger (15), is ’n PWS-lyer. PWS is ’n genetiese afwyking. Die PWSvereniging in SA sê lyers kan aan bepaalde eienskappe uitgeken word soos hipotonie (lae spiertonus), voedingsprobleme en onderontwikkeling van die geslagsdele in die neonatale tydperk en obesiteit, kort liggaamsbou, verstandelike gestremdheid en gedragsprobleme in die latere lewensjare. Ruan se ma, Liezl Vlok van Oudtshoorn, sê sy hoef vir geen ouer van ’n kind met PWS al die vreugdes, uitdagings, hoogtepunte en laagtepunte van hulle daaglikse bestaan te verduidelik nie. “Vir my is die grootse leemte in die ondersteuning en kennis tot ons beskikking, die gebrek aan ’n huis wat ingerig is om net kinders met PWS op ’n sinvolle en stimulerende manier te akkommodeer.” Om dié rede het die Warnich-familie, ou-

pa Henri en ouma Marieke, hul seuns, Hennie en Botha, en dogter, Liezl, beplan om ’n huis vir mense met PWS op te rig. Dié huis sal net PWS-lyers huisves en sal selfonderhoudend funksioneer. PWS-vereniging se nasionale voorsitter, Rika du Plooy, sê baie ouers van PWSlyers is bekommerd oor wat met hul kinders gaan gebeur as hulle nie meer daar is nie. Rika se dogter is ook ’n lyer. Die Henri Warnich Stigting is onlangs gestig. Dis vernoem na Hennie Warnich en sy vrou, Yolanda, se seuntjie – een van ’n tweeling – wat kort ná sy geboorte in 2004 oorlede is. Vlok sê die grootste uitdaging is om fondse te genereer. Hennie het die voortou geneem en die fondse van sy eenman-komedie in die stigting se fondsrekening betaal.

Prader-Willi-sindroom (PWS) PWS is nie ’n siekte nie en kan nie genees word nie. Volgens die PWS-vereniging van SuidAfrika werk navorsers wêreldwyd om die uiters komplekse aard van hierdie afwyking te begryp. Die Suid-Afrikaanse vereniging is ’n ondersteuningsgroep wat in Maart 1990 deur ’n klein groepie besorgde ouers gestig is. Sedertdien het die Vereniging se ledetal toegeneem en is hulle deel van ’n wêreldwye inligtingsnetwerk oor PWS. Dit is moeilik om presies te bepaal hoeveel mense in Suid-Afrika aan die sindroom ly. Daar word gesê dat een uit tussen 12 000 en 22 000 mense dit kry. Hierdie sindroom kom ewe veel by mans en vroue voor en word by individue van alle rasse aangetref.

Sebastian Scheidereiter is confident about his results. “You can never put in enough hours, but the exams were fine,” he says. “I could answer almost all the questions without struggling.”Sebastian is hoping to get an A aggregate so he can be accepted at the University of Cape Town to study medicine.

Luca Baumann says his teachers made sure he and his fellow pupils knew their subjects backwards. “Everything went fine,” he says. “I was well prepared.” He does admit to a little nervousness about his results, but he says it still feels awesome to be finished with school. Evert Jansen van Vuuren says: “It feels great to be done with school after 12 years. I am amped to be studying engineering at Stellenbosch University next year.” Evert feels that, except for a tricky maths paper, the exams went very well.

Rick Kleinhans feels his exams went well. “The maths was of a high standard but I coped fine. Chemistry was relatively easy, and I was quite surprised.” Rick is sure he will be pleased with his results. He is also looking forward to next year, when he will start studying computer science.

Ryan Page is positive that he did very well. “I gave it my all and couldn’t have prepared more,” he says with confidence. “I will be happy with whatever marks I get.” Ryan will be studying engineering at Stellenbosch University next year. He says it feels rather strange to wake up every morning and know he’s finished with school.

THE Tekkie your Town campaign is in its closing stages, with only two weeks left to put foot for a cause. Since 8 September the project has given an extraordinary number of shoes to charity organisations, schools and sports clubs. On Tuesday we visited the Zandvliet Care Facility in Macassar to donate shoes for frail, disabled and aged people. “We are thankful for this donation, as the people here do not always have essentials such as shoes and clothing,” said Allan Smith, the CEO of the centre. We urge all Helderbergers to keep on filling the shoe bin at Tekkie Town Somerset West. DistrictMail and Tekkie Town would also like to thank all those who have donated shoes already. Remember, our biggest need is still children’s shoes. Any local organisations, schools and charities in need of shoes can contact Jason Felix on 0 021 841 4290.

CHRISTMAS SALE Somerset West Branch ONLY

A Christmas appeal THE Helderberg Street People’s Centre will host Christmas lunches for the poor and homeless in the weeks ahead. The first lunch will feed about 350 people on Thursday 15 December at the daycare centre at the Sir Lowry’s Pass railway station. This will be followed by Christmas lunch for the destitute people of Somerset West on Sunday 18 December at the centre in Victoria Street; 250 people are expected. In addition, the centre will deliver food parcels to about 100 households where people are too sick to attend the lunches. To be able to give everybody the festive treat they deserve, centre volunteers implore people to help them

with donations of roasted chickens or money in lieu. “Whilst we appreciate that the present economic climate has been difficult for many in our community, for those on the margins it has been even worse,” says centre chairperson Ian Greer. All deliveries can be made to the soup kitchen in Victoria Street, opposite Somerset West Library. “To all those who have supported us during the course of the year – be it financially, through donations, or through prayer and by being there when we most needed your help – bless you,” Greer says. If you can help, or would like to find out more, please phone Ian on 0 021 851 6714 or 082 785 4822.

Trailblazing THE opening of the extended Lourens River Trail sets off from the river bank at the upper end of the Lourens River Estate, just below Bizweni Campus, at 09:00 on Saturday 10 December. The Lourens River Conservation Society invites all hikers to join. Gifts will not be handed out on the day, but participants will be given information pamphlets.

You can choose to walk either as far as Island-Reitz Park, or as far as Strand Beach – about two-and-ahalf hours away – in which case you will be given a commemorative certificate of completion. The organisers point out that this is not a race, and ask people to look out for one another. Take refreshments, a sun hat and strong supportive footwear, and be sure to arrange your own transport. Parking is available at Bizweni Campus. For more information, phone Bat Tromp on 0 021 855 3881 or Alan Penfold on 021 852 3832.

’n Flair-afsluiting DIE Helderberg-blommeklub het onlangs hul jaareindfunksie met ’n gala-ete by die Farmhouse Restaurant in Somerset-Wes gehou. Die tema van die funksie was “Denim met ’n flair” en almal was uitgevat vir die geleentheid. Die klub is op 21 Oktober 1974 gestig en is die oudste blommeklub in die Helderberg. Vir die eerste keer in die klub se geskiedenis is ’n Goue Lelie-toekenning vir hulp en bystand oorhandig. Susan Marks, Chantel Henn, Ingrid Henn en Esmé Pietersen is met dié toekenning beloon. Leana Vermeulen het die prys gewen vir beste leerling van die werkswinkel. Die trofeë-wenners vir werk deur die jaar gelewer is: Engela Kruger – beste gevorder,

Retha Lategan – beste intermediêr en Susan Pietersen – beste beginner. Tommy Dell, erelid van die klub, het ook vir die klubvoorsitter Jannie du Toit, met ’n spesiale toekenning vereer.

Jazz jam heats up the Helderberg

Machineri is one of the many acts to play at the festival.

Join the acoustic alliance EIGHTEEN top SA musicians are set to play at the Cape Town Folk ’n Acoustic Music Festival next month – and you stand a chance to play among them. A mix of acoustic guitarists such as Steve Newman and Guy Buttery, along with singer-songwriter stalwarts such as Farryl Purkiss and Rory Eliot, will come together for the retro folk concert at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Saturday 10 December. The artists will perform solo and duo sets, completely unplugged and stripped down to the essentials – guitar and voice. Add to all this some blues from

Natasha Meister and Machineri, as well as a little folk–pop by Janie Bay, and you’ve got a fine evening of musical storytelling. Tickets cost R180 through www.webtickets.co.za, or R200 at the door. From each ticket sold, R5 will be donated to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA, and the first 300 tickets booked come with free gift bags courtesy of Sedgwick’s Old Brown Sherry. The organisers implore everybody to drop a fluffy toy in one of the bins dotted around the venue’s foyer to help Hospice cheer up a child in need this Christmas. To find out more about the festival, visit www.realwired.co.za.

TAKE your picnic basket, friends and family and enjoy the late afternoon summer sun with the Delft Big Band when they swing into action at the Helderberg Nature Reserve’s Summer Sunset Concert. The band will show off what their instruments can do on Sunday 11 December at 17:30. Featuring members as young as 13, the band was formed in August 2008 as a developmental initiative to help vulnerable youths from high schools in Leiden, Rosendal and Voorbrug outside Cape Town. Under the directorship of renowned jazz trumpeter Ian Smith, the Delft Big Band has been stealing the show at major jazz events both locally and internationally. The band performed at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival in April 2010 and the Youth Jazz Festival at Artscape this year. And, in March, six members of the band performed to rapturous applause in Sweden at the 11th World’s Children’s Prize, awarded annually to those who have made a difference to children’s rights. Previous winners include Nelson

Gaan Groen met Gian: Die Gian Groen Band is terug op die verhoog by Bertie’s Moorings op Vrydag 2 Desember. Die groep bestaan uit Jeremy Schultze op dromme, Regard Grobler op baskitaar, John Mitchell op elektriese klavier en Gian Groen op kitaar en stem. Die band is een van baie min Afrikaanse rockgroepe met ’n meer internasionale klank en is bekend vir treffers soos Vier Seisoene Kind, Tiger en Louise en Binneland in. Deesdae eksperimenteer Gian meer met die blues en kan daar hier en daar ook ’n Engelse nommer of twee verwag word. Hulle beloof om die gehoor op ’n onvergeetlike emosionele rollercoaster ride te neem op die maat van goeie ou rock & roll-klanke. Die vertoning begin om 21:00 en toegang is gratis.

Ian Smith himself recently received an award from the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport for his contribution to the performing arts in music, with special mention of his contribution to the Delft Big Band. The Helderberg Summer Sunset series is presented by the Friends of the Helderberg Nature Reserve and Fleur du Cap. All proceeds gen-

erated by the Sunset Concerts go towards environmental projects in the Helderberg Nature Reserve. Tickets cost R40 for adults and R10 for scholars; there is no admission fee for children under the age of five.

Then, on Saturday at 20:30, 3D will make an appearance at La Lulla’s Pub in Gordon’s Bay.

Die album bevat 18 splinternuwe liedjies uit sy pen. Daar is baie verassings op die nuwe CD, insluitend ’n duet met Dozi, Die Oom song, en ’n asemrowende gestroopte toonsetting van die Antjie Krog gedig Stasie, plus nog 16 ander liedjies wat wissel van tema’s oor die liefde en die lewe. Die sterkste radiotreffer is definitief die titelsnit Die liefde los ’n spoor. Dié liedjie, nes Die weduwee se kruik en News Café is liefdesballades

The star-studded lineup includes Steve Hofmeyr, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Emo Adams, Manie Jackson, Snotkop, Andriette Norman (seen here), Die Broers, Karlien van Jaarsveld and Andries Vermeulen. In 2007 Norman’s strong vocal range saw her placed as one of the top three Idols in the SA version of the competition.

en God se kind ’n aangrypende dooplied vir sy seuntjie Jamie. Dan is daar ook altyd ’n bietjie rebellie in die liedjie Padwoede en aanhangers sal definitief met dié emosie wat gepaard gaan met spitsverkeer en taxi’s kan assosieer. Die lied Toerbus en ’n Trailer is ’n aangrypende lied oor die lewe van ’n kunstenaar op die pad. Die nuuste toevoeging op die album is Gebed vir Mija, geskryf en gesing vir sy dogtertjie wat onlangs gebore is. Kom luister na al die hartroerende treffers en nog meer. Kaartjies kos R110.

Artistic spark: Each year the Owl House, where people are encouraged to take a journey into their creative hearts through art, puts on an exhibition that shows off its participants’ achievements and celebrates the process they worked through. This year’s Pink Dot Affair takes place tomorrow (Friday) at the Bizweni Campus in Bizweni Avenue at 18:30. The event will include an art exhibition, wine tasting, jazz played by The Brotherhood, and food tables for the hungry. The Owl House, established in 2009, strives to provide a place for people of all ages and stages in life to be creative. The idea was born out of the study of artist Oska Kokoschka, who established the School of Seeing in 1953 in Salzburg. Seen here (from left) are members Wilme Delport, Chris Hinrichsen, Liz Soule, Elke Lingenfelde, Kobus and Hazel Swart, and Anseri Boje.

Andringa Walk at the Mall A

NEW contemporary residential development is taking shape in the heart of Stellenbosch. Residents will have the unique opportunity to shop, eat and play within metres of their own home. “Andringa Walk”, consist of 119 apartments, including bachelor, one-, two- and threebedroomed units, and a few duplexes, will enjoy a direct link to the Eikestad Mall, allowing residents to utilise its huge array of shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) has the exclusive mandate to market the apartments, which are priced from R1,4 million to R3,35 million, inclusive of VAT. PGP’s project manager for the development, Louise Varga, says construction of the apartments is already well underway. The site will include two floors of retail space, including a Woolworths, Food Lovers’ Market and Virgin Active Gym. These will be topped by a large podium level containing Andringa Walk’s ground floor and a large communal open garden. The 30 apartments on this level will all have their own private gardens in addition to the extensive communal space. A further two levels of apartments above these will enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. The units range in size from 33 m² to 123 m², with high-quality finishes including marble counter-tops and bathroom vanities.

An artists view of Andringa Walk. The podium level containing Andringa Walk’s ground floor will also have a large communal open garden. The 30 apartments on this level will all have their own private gardens in addition to the extensive communal space.

The building will enjoy round the clock security with a 24-hour concierge and its own private elevators. Varga says whilst the building is contemporary in style, it has been designed to blend harmoniously with its heritage surroundings. “This is the historic heart of the town with numerous national monuments, gracious homesteads and massive oak trees lining the streets. There is a won-

derful street café atmosphere in the surrounding area, and residents will be able to tap into this relaxed environment as well as enjoying the convenience of living connected to their own shopping mall. “The university campus is just a few minutes’ walk away, making this a very attractive location for students, with significant potential for rental income as a result. It is a simply unparalleled location which should enjoy sus-

tained demand.” PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg region, Annien Borg, says the developers Abacus Asset Management are known for their commitment to “green” building standards, including energy reduction, recycling of grey- and rainwater, and the use of natural light. “This approach is also being applied at Andringa Walk to create the ideal private retreat in the heart of town.” Parking spaces can be pur-

chased at extra cost in the secure basement area, where residents will also be able to rent storage space if they need to store large items such as mountain bikes and other sporting equipment. Occupation is anticipated from October 2012. For more information on Andringa Walk, call PGP agent Vanessa Johnson (082 588 7007) or project manager Louise Varga (082 552 4118), Stellenbosch office 0 021 887 1017, 2 stellenbosch@pamgolding.co.za.

THE Cape Chamber of Commerce welcomes union attempts to speed up job creation, but warns that without real economic growth the new jobs will not be sustainable. “We can create a lot more jobs if we use labour intensive methods in commerce and industry, but the result will be higher costs and that will not make us more competitive,” said Mr Michael Bagraim, president of the Chamber. “Unions are not employers and they can only exist when business has created the jobs for their members. If we want more jobs, business has to grow.” To achieve this, the government should talk to business and design policies to encourage growth. This was sometimes a lot easier and a lot cheaper than many economists believed. “The first thing we have to do is remove

some of the restrictions that are inhibiting growth. Sometimes it is as simple as getting out of the way and allowing private enterprise to get on with what it does best.” Municipalities should ease the way for architects and builders who created jobs and government should relax labour legislation to encourage business to employ more people. “Sometime all government has to do is stand back and collect the taxes. Instead government insists on becoming involved and trying to exert more control, often in areas where it lacks expertise.” An example was the mining industry where extensive changes in legislation had created policy uncertainties and this had made companies reluctant to invest in new projects. Another example was the desperate

need for independent power producers to cope with the growing demand for electricity. “All the government has to do is get out of the way and allow the big municipalities, the main distributors of electrity, to buy directly from the IPP’s.” The oil industry was subject to excessive government control and this had forced up petrol and diesel prices. Pick ’n Pay had been barred from selling petrol at discount prices and the lack of competition had caused stagnation in the industry. “Now we have shortages of LPG and bitumen and the ageing refineries are breaking down,” Bagraim said. He is of the opinion that without government interference, “market forces will see that we have enough petrol, gas and tar for the roads”.

SECTIONAL TITLE INSURANCE FORUM IN the Sectional Title Industry I find that most liability claims are handled incorrectly, resulting in unpleasantness when insurers decline these claims. Prescribed Rule 29 (2) of the Sectional Title Act states that: “…trustees shall take steps to (a) insure the owners and trustees …against liability….occurring in connection with the common property…”. It is therefore clear that liability occurring from inside an owner’s unit is not the Body Corporate’s responsibility. The insurance policy is also clear on this point. Let’s consider the following scenarios: ) A member of the public is injured, or his / her property is damaged, whilst visiting an owner. If the visitor feels that the injury/damage was caused by the negligence of the Body Corporate and, provided the injury / damage occurred on the common grounds, passages, stairs, lifts, etc., the visitor has the right to claim against the Body Corporate as the insured. If the injury / damage was caused inside the owner’s unit the claim will invariably be against the owner. ) A tenant of an owner is injured, or his / her property is damaged, and he / she feels that such injury/damage was caused by the negligence of the Body Corporate and, provided the injury / damage occurred on the common grounds as described above, the lease agreement be-

tween the owner and the tenant will have to be considered before any action can be taken. To clarify: Most lease agreements contain clauses whereby an owner cannot be held liable by his / her tenant on any grounds. By definition an owner is the insured and therefore, the Body Corporate. The tenant therefore, cannot claim against the Body Corporate. ) Then there is the matter of disclaimers. Insurers are adamant when dealing with liability claims where the Body Corporate has neglected to display it. The procedures to follow when a liability claim is lodged against a Body Corporate, are to be noted: (a) The Body Corporate may acknowledge receipt of the claimant’s claim but cannot accept liability, the insurer is the only entity who may do so. (b) The claimant must submit his/her claim to the Body Corporate in writing, stating the reason why the claimant is holding the Body Corporate liable. (c) The trustees are to complete the relevant claim form as well as a statement, stating their views on the matter. (d) All further dealings with the claimant will then be handled by the insurer. (e) It must be suggested to the claimant that, should the claimant be insured for the particular event, the claim be submitted to the claimant’s insurers as well.

imber windows add a beautiful aesthetic to any home they grace, and if they are well maintained, they can last a lifetime. Charl Jacobz from Swartland Wooden Windows and Doors offers some tips and advice on how to best maintain their beauty. Wooden windows need periodic care in order to ensure they maintain their good looks, durability and proper function. Although there are no hard and fast rules how often these maintenance activities should be made, the more regularly the maintenance is carried out, the better. In South Africa, special attention should be given particularly to wooden windows on northern and western elevations, where the sun’s UV rays are most harsh. “A good habit is to inspect, clean and do the necessary maintenance that is required, every six or so months.” Cleaning ) Wipe down the surface with a dustfree, damp cloth or sponge. ) If the dirt and soot build-up is excessive, you can wash it off using a dust-free cloth or sponge and a light mixture of warm soapy water. The best detergent should be mild, have a neutral PH, and it must be non-abrasive. ) Rinse off the surface with plain water to remove any soapy residue, and let

the surface dry out completely. Checklist of possible problems While cleaning the windows, closely inspect them for any possible problems, which could include: ) Water penetration: This can be caused by cracking of the window’s finish due to lack of necessary maintenance, or due to lack of general house maintenance. Timber windows are designed to withstand water, as long as it clears away without lingering. If the water is consistently in contact with the wooden window frame, this will eventually lead to damage. ) Rotting timber: This is caused by

Elaine 079 308 7869

Lizelle 082 788 7727

André 084 472 6661

moisture getting into the timber or because the timber is old and not correctly maintained or finished. You will need to remove the rot – chisel it away, making sure you go beyond the rot to the good wood and use filler to fill up the remaining hole. Once the filler has dried, you will need to sand it down so that it is smooth with the rest of the wood, prime and seal it. ) Window hardware: Make sure that all the hardware and other moving parts are adequately fastened into place and working as they should. It is wise to lubricate the moving parts twice a year with a few drops of acid-free oil, so they continue to move smoothly. ) Sticking windows: This could be caused by paint or varnish build-up or moisture getting into the wood. Simply strip it down to the bare wood and repaint it. Seasonal sticking means that the wood is absorbing moisture, causing it to expand. If this is the case, it is essential to determine where the water is getting in and to remedy the situation. ) Sash windows: Be sure to inspect the ropes regularly for fraying, and replace as needed. ) Cracking in the finish: This is the most common thing to check for, and by far, the most important – a well maintained finish would ensure that no water penetrates the wood and will guarantee the longevity and durability of your timber window.

NEW PAARL LIFESTYLE/RETIREMENT VILLAGE The first phase of 'Oude Chardonnay' situated on the banks of the Berg River in Paarl is selling now. “One of the big differences that sets this project apart from similar developments,” said Joubert Paarl Rawson Principal, “is that the lifestyle units are sold on a freehold basis with full recovery plus profits when resold and there is no lower age limit on purchasers, but those who live here have to be 55 years or older although the buyers/owners can be of any age. This makes Oude Chardonnay ideal for those people who want to secure a home for their parents in their old age but who would like to see a turn on their investment at some stage. It also makes the project suitable for straight buy-tolet investors.” The Southern Paarl site, which covers approximately 5 ha in all, will have two hectares of gardens and residents will have 360 degrees of breathtaking views of the Simonsberg, Paarlberg, Franchhoek and Drakenstein mountains. Some features of the development includes the following: * The project is only 2 minutes drive from the town centre

* Approximately 700 meters from the new Paarl Mall Shopping complex. * The estate will be secured with electrified fencing * Access control with guards on duty on a 24/7 basis * An in-house golf cart transport/porter service (owned and operated by the Home Owners Association) This will be available to take residents to dining and/or medical facilities or to your friends also living in the estate. * A Home Owners Association managed minibus shuttle service for residents that don't want to drive in the busy traffic anymore. This service will take residents to the shops in town etc. * The resort is animal friendly and small pets are welcome. * A full medical support facility with Assisted Living Apartments * Each freehold house of the first phase will be fitted with an air-conditioner unit free of charge. * 2 Ha of landscaped gardens will be available to residents to enjoy the beautiful surrounding nature.

To encourage initial buyers the developer are offering discounted prices - as low as R995 000 - on the first five two bedroom houses sold and R1 059 000 on the second batch of five although the normal selling prices thereafter will be from R1 195 000.

The aim of this development is to establish about 350 residential opportunities within the next two years, which will be a phased development. Phase one will comprise 45 plot and plan houses, all designed in a simple Modern Cape

In the follow up phase, the developers will build a complete 3 000m² medical facility in which there will be ultimately 70 assisted living units with a single bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchenette. These will be available from R495 000.

PROFILE

The enduring magic of Marna PIETER BOONZAIER A RARE combination of diligence, tenacity, beauty and leadership has landed one of Somerset West’s past pupils with one of the most outstanding achievements that can be attained by any student. Marna Rörich matriculated in 2008 from Somerset College, and enrolled to study foundationphase education at the CPUT in Wellington in 2009. Her leadership potential showed already when she was elected as class representative. She was also a finalist in the demanding Miss CPUT contest. But it was in this year that her tenacity and fighting spirit truly emerged – when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. She passed her first-year subjects comfortably, reeling in a few distinctions. She knew 2010 would be a tough year, with eight sessions of chemotherapy ahead. Then came daily radiation treatment for three weeks – during which she opted to stay on campus and attend classes, and even conducted the choir for a competition despite having lost her voice. She was re-elected as class representative. And, although she had

lost all her beautiful long hair, she donned a wig and faced her classes – and the stage for the Miss CPUT contest – with confidence. She was chosen by popular vote as Miss Campus. And, says Marna: “I needed to focus on my studies during my second year, and with the wonderful support of a super-mom, that is exactly what I did.” Riana Rörich, Marna’s mom, is an adept and popular Grade 1 teacher with many years of experience at prestigious schools in Stellenbosch and elsewhere. “Being a widow, and donning the dad-hat every now and then, was not easy, but I am so proud of Marna’s achievements,” she says. “I believed she could do it, and she proved to all and sundry that she has what it takes to be a leader despite life’s adversities. ” Marna missed only one class during her chemotherapy, and impressed everyone at the oncology department with her sparkling personality and positive outlook. She wrote a blog to record her journey and encourage others in similar circumstances. Her entries can be read at www.copingwithcancer19.blogspot.com.

In her third year, Marna was elected as a member of the CPUT Students’ Representative Council (SRC) on the Residences, Transport and Welfare portfolio. By now she had truly made name for herself, and her popularity was enunciated with her unopposed election as campus SRC chairperson for 2012 – the only female chairperson among the CPUT’s satellite campuses. Marna turned 21 on 8 November, and her future looks rosy. As she sums up on her blog, “I hope to make a big difference in the world somehow after going through this ordeal. I now know I can pretty much get through anything.” She’s set on generating awareness around Hodgkin’s lymphoma – and she’s “looking forward to the rest of this year, which I can now finish as a healthy happy teenager.” Marna, passionate about teaching, chose to spend her practical

teaching time at Somerset West schools such as Beaumont and De Hoop Primaries, Hendrik Louw Primary in the Strand, and her alma mater, Somerset College. She distinguished herself at all of these schools as an outstanding teacher.

Cash can still be King

Mark Williams Mcomm, CFP, HDipTax 0 021 851 3746 2 mark@synfin.co.za

THIS week I heard a saying, which I have not heard in a while and that is that “Cash is King”. Truth be told, cash can never be King, unless maybe the King of Swaziland considering how broke they are. Cash is currently behaving more like the Court Jester offering negative real returns after inflation. However, cash can still rule the Kingdom. The title of King often given to cash refers to the benefit of liquidity and not the long-term returns on offer from cash. Having access to cash when the opportunity presents itself is the real benefit of cash and why cash can still rule as King. The return on cash is the interest earned plus the potential return from buying an asset at a

cheaper price in the future. If you believe the stock market is likely to fall by 15% over the next 12 months then your return from cash would be the 5,5% interest earned plus the 15% fall in prices totalling a return of 20,5% for the year. I often hear an investor lament “if only I had the money,” and this is the real benefit of holding cash. Very often when the opportunity presents itself investors stand back to “let the dust settle”, thus missing the opportunity. Sometimes it pays to “keep your powder dry” and your finger on the “trigger”, but getting this timing right is notoriously difficult and takes plenty of courage. Especially when there is “blood on the street”.

AWARD

Ben’s on the Beach – one of the best NIKITA SYLVESTER STRAND restaurant Ben’s on the Beach is holding the Helderberg high: you can rest assured there that, with its national Best Steakhouse award, you’ll be eating one of the best steaks around. Ben’s on the Beach proved it has the sizzle when the Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards set out to find those restaurants offering the tastiest, juiciest and most tantalising steaks. Ben Oosthuizen’s restaurant and 24 others across the country were selected as the best steak and grill houses in South Africa. The competition is not one restaurants can enter – judging happens nationwide, and it’s completely unannounced and anonymous. “I had no idea about the competition and that my restaurant had been chosen,” Oosthuizen says. “I heard about it from a friend and went to check it out on the website.” Although, he says, his business has been going strong for eight years, this award is a great accomplishment for the team. “This award means a lot to me as I am nearing the end of my career.” Oosthuizen explains that he has worked in steak houses for most of his life. To him this is not just a job:

Shirley Oosthuizen at work in the restaurant’s own private butchery. it’s about doing what you love and making it a way of life. The 56-year-old Oosthuizen, originally from London but currently living in Somerset West, has been in the steak business since 1974. In 1985 Oosthuizen opened his own steak house in Stellenbosch, called Bobby Mc Gees. There he won the very first JAYCEE Best Steakhouse in the Cape award. And at Ben’s on the Beach, Oostehuizen says, staff always strive to give their clients the best service and food. “We are blessed with a fantastic team who ensure that our meat is

of top quality. “Ben’s has its own mini butchery and dedicated refrigeration system where we process, age and cure our meats. We are one of the few grill houses that continue to dry-age beef on the bone. Although this is more expensive and labour intensive, it is the time-honoured and superior way to handle meat. “The ageing and processing of our meat is my personal responsibility, which I attend to on a daily basis – six days a week.” Oosthuizen explains that Ben’s on the Beach is not just a place to pop out for a quick bite: it’s a restaurant where you can spend hours en-

Ben Oosthuizen, doing what he loves. joying good company and great food in a welcoming atmosphere. He says that, in these tough times, running a restaurant can be challenging. “Eating out has become expensive, but we’re very blessed because we’re still growing and happy with the way things are going.” Indeed, the restaurant is no

stranger to praise. In 2009 Ben’s was awarded Best New Entry by the Diners Club, which also handed it a platinum award for its wine. “Running a restaurant is about passion,” Oosthuizen says. “You think it’s easy but it’s not – you need to care about what you do and believe in the pursuit of excellence.”

ACHIEVEMENT

RECOGNITION

Innovation motivation:

The business of being the best

Paul Harrison (left) from Somerset West proudly accepts his title as Innovator of the Year at the recent SA Business Club Business Awards. Harrison was up against two other finalists, and though he says they were “very strong” competitors, his novel SMS-based motivational service won out in the end. “Unbelievable!” he says. “Considering that MOBIvation.com started out as just an idea I was sending out to my friends to support them moving forward, to be recognised in the mainstream business world like this is more than I ever dreamed possible.” He says that, if there is one thing receiving this award has shown him, “no idea is too crazy to be successful”.

CONSCIENTIOUS business people got bang for their bucks when their hard work earned recognition at the seventh annual Business Awards, held by the Helderberg Chamber of Commerce at the Lourensford Estate last Friday. The Chairman’s Discretionary Award went to Lourensford owner and prominent businessman, Dr Christo Wiese, in acknowledgement of the impact of the contribution he’s made to the local industry and its community, and his work through Lourensford’s activities. The other award categories recognised meaningful and significant contributions

made by business, associations and societies within the Helderberg basin. The winners were: ) Tourism Award – the Lord Charles Hotel; ) Marketing and Branding Award – Helderberg Hospice; ) Service Excellence Award – Helderberg Personnel; ) Business of the Year Award: Friedman & Cohen. The Helderberg Chamber congratulates all of this year’s winners, and voices confidence that these awards will continue to inspire exemplarily service.

AGM

Helderberg Watch takes stock BEATRICE WILTSHIRE

PROACTIVE policing is a far more effective way of dealing with crime than simply reacting as incidents occur, and this point was stressed by Peter Brand, chairperson of the Helderberg Crime Watch (HCW), at its annual general meeting. “We believe that keeping the streets safer is a very important layer of security, just as important as the security within the home or business,” Brand said, speaking at the Lord Charles earlier this month. In keeping with this, the dedicated HCW–Vetus Schola patrol vehicles have been patrolling the streets by focusing on crime hot spots rather than just driving around aimlessly. Watch members say this approach, working closely with the police, law enforcement and other neighbourhood watches, has been bringing down crime in the Helderberg’s residential areas since the end of 2010, at which time crime throughout the country was rising to unprecedented levels.

Operations manager Hugh Roe cautioned residents, however, to adapt their lifestyles and teach their children how to avoid situations in which they are vulnerable. People should get to know their neighbours and get involved in community initiatives, he added.

HCW management are (back, from left) Hugh Roe (operations manager), Peter Brand (chair), Tony van Minnen, Alastair Shand, John Middleton (vicechair) and Marius Victor. Front: Johan Kruger and Leon Diedericks.

In the front row (from left) are Cherelle Economon (Lord Charles Hotel), Patricia McNaught Davis (Helderberg Hospice), Sharon Booth (Friedman & Cohen), MarieLouise Harrison and Anne-Mart le Roux (Helderberg Personnel). At the back are Johan West (Lourensford Estate biodiversity manager) and Renier Krige (HR Direct, and chairperson of the Chamber of Commerce’s Helderberg Branch).

GOLF

Fillies ready to race HENNIE PIETERSEN

Women in black: The women of the Somerset West Golf Club are a conscientious lot. Last week they all wore black to their weekly golf competition to show their support for Black Tuesday and solidarity against the Protection of State Information Bill. They’re not bad at golf, either: during the past season, four holes in one were scored by the club’s members, of whom all are women.

CROQUET

sportster:

Step up to the baulk

Cameron Gertze van Garden Village in Somerset-Wes het in sy eerste jaar as senior rugbyspeler vir die All Saints-rugbyklub uitstekend presteer. Hy het die trofeë ontvang vir die meeste punte aangeteken, die meeste drieë gedruk en die beste agterlynspeler in die derde span.

THE Somerset West Croquet Club invites those interested in the sport to join them at practice sessions on Mondays and Thursdays from 14:00 to 18:00, and on Saturdays at 09:30. Free coaching and loaned mallets are available. Phone Tony on 0 021 852 6052, Jill on 021 852 6872 or Mike on 021 852 4389.

STAR filly Princess Victoria will be all the rage for the R750 000 Avontuur Estate Cape Fillies Guineas (Grade 1) when the field of 11 lines up at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday 3 December. Beaten only once in her career, Glen Kotzen’s runner is likely to start deep in the red for one of the plums on the national calendar. Just how she shapes here will determine her path for the rest of the Western Cape’s Sizzling Summer Season. Kotzen said last week that Princess Victoria’s long term target was the Vodacom Durban July, but he was also considering running her against the colts in the Cape Premier Yearling Sales Guineas and possibly the Investec Cape Derby, but no firm plans were in place. The Victory Moon filly won her last three races from 1 200 m to 1 400 m against fillies, including two Grade 1s and a Grade 2, in effortless fashion. However, Kotzen has admitted

that the three-year-old colts and geldings are a very strong crop this year and she wouldn’t have it as easy against them. Also in the Avontuur lineup is Trinity House, the only horse to have finished in front of Princess Victoria. However, the tables have been turned since and Joey Ramsden’s runner had to play second fiddle in the recent Choice Carriers Championship. Thunder Dance finished third behind Princess Victoria and Trinity House that same race, but Brett Crawford’s runner is coming on the right way and should enjoy the extra come next Saturday. KZN-based trainer Dennis Drier is holding his own in the Western Cape and will saddle strapping import Miss Ipanema, fourth in the Choice Carriers Championship. The Aussie-bred is another who will enjoy the trip and should come on for that run. The Dean Kannemeyer-trained Bermuda Sloop has come into her own, winning her last two races in open company.

Jonges speel vir liefdadigheid SOMERSET Action Sports het Vrydag 25 November ’n liefdadigheidstoernooi vir laerskole aangebied. Deelnemende skole was Danie Ackerman en Strand Muslim Primêr (Strand), Sir Lowry’s Pass Primêr, Pineview Primêr en Kathleen Murray Primêr (albei Grabouw). Dit was ’n rondomtalie-formaat in o.11 en o.13-groepe, met semifinale en finale wedstryde daarna. Die prysuitdeling was direk ná die finale wedstryde. In die o.11 kategorie was die uitslae soos volg: 1. Danie Ackerman, 2. Pineview en 3. Sir Lowry’s Pass.

Die speler van die toernooi in die o.11-kategorie was Quinn Dampies van Danie Ackerman, en sy prys was ’n krieketstel geborg deur B-Sports Warehouse in Stellenbosch. In die o.13-kategorie was die uitslae soos volg: 1. Pineview, 2. Danie Ackerman en 3. Kathleen Murray Primêr. Die speler van die toernooi was Curlin Fielies van Pineview en sy prys wat ’n krieketkolf geborg deur B-Sports Warehouse. Almal het die toernooi vreeslik geniet en was dit eens dat hulle defi-

Die o.13 en o.11-krieketspanne van Danie Ackermann Primêr het uitmuntende spel gelewer toe hulle teen ’n paar ander skole meegeding het by ’n krieket-toernooi wat Sondag by die Action Sports Indoor Cricket Centre plaasgevind het. Danie Ackermann se o.13-span het tweede plek behaal terwyl hul o.11-span eerste geëindig het. Hier verskyn die o.13-span en hul afrigters (van links) Shaun Stewart, Greg Klink en Donovan Japhta.

nitief aan die skole-toernooi gaan deelneem wat einde Januarie gaan begin. Alle skole is welkom om aan dié toernooi deel te neem. Vir meer inligting en vir inskrywingsvorms vir die skoletoernooi, skakel gerus vir Gersie by die Action Sports arena in Somerset Wes op 021 851 7769 of 021 801 4330.

Danie Ackermann se o.11-span was die toernooiwenners. Hulle trotse afrigters is Leon Geswindt (links) en Martin Leukes. Quinn Dampies (voor, tweede van links) is as die beste o.11 speler van die toernooi vereer.

The next race will wend its way through exquisite terrain.

Prime yourself for next year’s gruelling Grape Escape ENTRIES for the Columbia Grape Escape three-day mountain bike stage race are now open. The race is set to take place in the Boland from 1 to 3 March 2012. Following the hugely successful inaugural stage event this year, riders are encouraged to secure their places early as entries are limited to 750. The race will be held over three days, and will lead experienced mountain bikers through more than 200 km of some of the most spectacular terrain in the Boland, including 4 600 m of steep ascent. “Following last year’s success and the feedback we received, we’ve kept the aspects of the event that appealed most to riders,” says David Bellairs, CEO of the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust, “including keeping the cost as low as possible by not offering a fullservice stage race but still keep-

ing comfort levels high. “We’ve tweaked and improved on other aspects, such as moving the race back by a day, which allows competitive riders an opportunity to participate in the ultradistance of the Cape Argus Pick n Pay MTB challenge taking place at Boschendal on Sunday 4 March.” The stage race will follow a new route in 2012, designed by mountain bike trail guru Meurant Botha. “Our aim for the 2012 race is to create a flowing, more technical route that incorporates the best features presented by the diverse terrain and appeals to the more serious social rider.” For more information visit www.grapeescape.co.za.

VAN HEERDEN HEUNIS aangeër. As looks die maatstaf is, kom die Porsche en BMW tweede. As presence die maatstaf is, kom hulle tweede. As afgerondheid die maatstaf is, kom hulle tweede. En as begeerlikheid die maatstaf is, kom hulle ook tweede. Niks op aarde is volmaak nie. Tog is daar hoegenaamd niks wat ek aan die MercedesBenz SLK200 sou wou verander nie. Hy lyk lieflik. Hy hanteer voortreflik. Hy is onweerstaanbaar. Vir my was die sintese tussen ’n roadster se bakontwerp, binneruim, hantering en verrigting nog selde só uitmuntend. Ek wens tog dié SLK was myne. Had ek R555 700, dan was hy. ) Die toetsmotor is goedgunstiglik beskikbaar gemaak deur Eugène Botha van Rola Motors Mercedes-Benz.

DAAR is iets hemels omtrent die sterre. Dié aan die uitspansel weerkaats die wonder van die skepping; dié in wielewêreld vergestalt die vernuf van die mens. En, as daar natuurlik één ondermaanse skepping is wat sy ster verdien, dan is dit Mercedes-Benz. Die nuwe SLK200 bewys dit opnuut. Sedert sy geboorte in 1996 het die SLK vir hom ’n spesiale plekkie oopgewikkel in die harte van derduisende gesofistikeerde, pretlustige motorryers. Dit ten spyt, was motorskrywers heelwat minder ontvanklik en aansienlik meer harteloos: Die SLK – het hulle knaend gekla – is ’n oninspirerende oopdakkarretjie, net geskik vir vertonerige huisvroue en haarstiliste. Nie regtig ’n ware roadster nie, en beslis nie ’n waardige mededinger vir Porsche se Boxster en BMW se Z3 en Z4 met hul seildakkies nie. Die eerste SLK’s was beslis nie die helderste ster in Mercedes-Benz se uitspansel nie, maar het nietemin verkoop soos soetkoek. Die tweede het aansienlik blinker geskyn, en het ontwerppryse begin verower. Die derde – dis die reeks wat pas by ons sy verskyning gemaak het – is ’n ster van ’n gans ander glans. Dit is ’n begeerlike motor, allermins net vir huisvroue en haarstiliste. SLK staan vir sportief, lig en kort – sportlich, leicht und kurz. In sy nuwe gedaante kan dit ook staan vir sexy, lieflik en kordaat. Drie maal is skeepsreg. Die derde reïnkernasie van SLK is, in ’n woord, hemels. En, hy sit jou in die derde hemel. Hoe MercedesBenz ooit hierop gaan verbeter, weet die hemel alleen. Miskien kan hy nog groener word, maar hopelik probeer die Merc-ontwerpers nooit hierdie wiel herontwerp nie. So min soos wat ek van die eerste SLK gehou het, so baie hou ek van die nuwe een. Die vraag is nie meer of hy kan kers vashou by Porsche en BMW se roadsters nie; die vraag is nou of hulle kan kers vashou by die Merc. Die antwoord is: Die SLK is die pas-

ANGLING

Sardine shoals promise a great season THE sardine masses that were all around the coast from Hout Bay to inside the bay at Glen Cairn had moved into deeper water on Sunday. Well-known boat angler Earl Fenwick and a number of colleagues were fortunate to see huge shoals of these sardines pushed onto the beach at Kommetjie on Sunday. Earl said the beach was littered with pilchard and birds feeding on the shoal. He said they really had a ball catching the sardines with the help of a throw net and procured a number of nets full of fish which they dragged onto the beach to fill their containers. These fresh sardines may either be blast frozen for bait or beheaded, cleaned, fried or baked. When cooked, the middle bone is removed, leaving two tasty fillets from each fish. Another option is to thoroughly clean and wash the sardine then carefully pack them into terracotta or clay jars with each layer of sardine separated by a layer of coarse salt until the jar is full. A wooden lid is then placed on top of the last layer of salt and a brick placed on top of the lid to pressurise the salted fish which can be kept and eaten after a few weeks. The Gordon’s Bay Boat Angling Club held their Inshore Classic Species competition on 18, 19 and 20 November. On Saturday morning the southeaster was still making its presence felt and most of the

Sponsored by

boats were limited to the bay fishing for kob and/or reef fish. The boat Bad Romanz found a yellowtail or two! The kayakers found some kob on the inside of the Strand reefs with Grant Shelton weighing a kob of 3,53 kg. Other significant catches on day one were D Moolman on his boat La gratitude who weighed in a Roman of 2,11 kg. Mark Truter on Bad Romanz caught a yellowtail of 5,01 kg. Also weighed in were some kreef of up to 1,01 kg by E Cronje. The Sunday started with mild weather and the oncoming westerly did not deter the boats from running to the point for yellowtail and most boats managed to boat a couple of fish! The weather took a turn for the worst and made fishing conditions unpleasant for the smaller boats. Plenty of katonkel were landed and the odd yellowfin was spotted! Louis Bekker won the competition with a yellowtail of 7,43 kg, kayak angler Grant Shelton was second with a kob of 3,53 kg and third place went to L Holtzhauszen with a snoek of 3,32 kg. The top women angler was Tanya Marias with a red roman of 1,30 kg. The organisers thanked all their sponsors, the inshore classic committee and anglers for their contribution to making this an enjoyable and successful competition. The elf season opens on Thursday 1 December and on that day there will no doubt be local spinner men spinning for elf on our

beaches. All anglers should bear in mind that although spinning can be hard work and sometimes tough on tackle, by concentrating on casting even novices quickly gain much more casting experience than they would by one or two single casts while bait fishing. Remember that when spinning with a multiplier type of reel a reasonably full spool wound very evenly right up to either side of the reel and an even wind-up will always get better results with the correct spinner weights for different winds. The recent sardine runs will also attract more geelbek, elf, kob and leerfish this season. We have recently experienced some really unusual weather patterns which has seen the wind direction chop and change from southwest to southeast very rapidly. This change in wind has resulted in coarse water breaking over the local popular outer banks and reefs which shore anglers often frequent.

This choppy water is not conducive to bringing kob and other summer fish close to the shore. A few kob and the odd geelbek, mostly small undersized fish, were caught during the weekend while the water was warm and colourful. The weather forecast for this weekend also looks dicey for boating and shore angling. Although the South East wind was pumping during the past weekend, a few die-hard boats from Simon’s Town ventured out seven miles off Cape Point, but no yellowtail or tunny could be located. This is the time of the year that smaller crafts should start catching geelbek and kob in Hangklip Bay. One or two boats that were out at Cape Point reported that the water was warm and bait fish were plentiful. For all your reel repairs and services contact Art on 021 854 3831. Keep on sending your fishing stories and photos to bjridgway@telkomsa.net.

Among the anglers who fished in the recent Gordon’s Bay Boat Angling Club’s Inshore Classic Species Competition were the crew aboard Bad Romanz. They are (from left) Dan Truter, Louis Becker (holding the winning fish of 7,43 kg), Mark Truter, Tristan Joubert and Collin Joubert.

FIETSRY

Speke sing vir lot van mishandelde kinders DISTANCE with a Difference, ’n organisasie wat hom beywer om die lewens van kinders wat mishandel of verwaarloos word, te verander, reël fietstoere om fondse in te samel. Enige bereidwillige kan deelneem, met ’n borg wat elke kilometer finansier. ’n Groepie plaaslike fietsryers het die afgelope naweek skouer aan die wiel gesit om ’n verskil te maak, deur 202 km tydens die Double Century te Swellendam en omgewing per fiets af te lê. Die groep se speke het behoorlik gesing vandat hulle 06:30 die Saterdagoggend in Swellendam weggespring het. “Ons sou dit beslis nie so geniet het en kon klaar maak, as dit nie vir ons ongelooflike ondersteuningsbasis was nie. Cape Aqua en Virgin Active het ons van water en Energade voorsien en Azure Refrigeration met ys,” sê ’n trotse Martie Groenewald, een van die organiseerders. Ten spyte van ’n pap wiel en speke wat gebreek het, het die groep van elf fietsryers agt ure later saam oor die wenstreep gery. Inligting oor hoe jy by die organisasie betrokke kan raak is by www.d4dsa.co.za.

CRICKET

Six of Helderberg’s best in WP teams SIX boys from the Helderberg have been selected for the Western Province u.11 cricket teams set to play in the inter-provincial tournament from 11 to 16 December in Worcester. This is a great achievement for cricket in the Helderberg area and an outstanding achievement for the boys themselves, who played their first official game for WP on Sunday against Boland at Wellington. Getting selected for the WP teams was extremely difficult, and the boys were put through a series of tough trials to prove they had what it takes. They all attended zonal trials in January and February at the Abattoir sports fields in Strand. After that there were five Mondays of trials before a Helderberg zonal team was chosen. Then, in March, the zonal team attended inter-zonal trials, at which six teams – totalling 90 boys – participated. At these trials 48 boys were chosen for a further round of trials in April. During this round, 26 boys were selected to represent the WP Invitational u.11 teams, which are named the Pups and the Cubs.

The six boys from the Helderberg who were selected to play for the WP u.11 cricket teams are (from left) Fuad Behardien (Strand Moslem), Joshua Raats (Somerset House), Samuel Henderson (Somerset College – captain of the Cubs), Salmaan Ajam (Strand Moslem), Kyle Banks (Beaumont) and Rudi Claassen (De Hoop – captain of the Pups). Congratulating the boys on their selection is Bereford Williams, president of the Western Province Cricket Association.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

New sports foundation launched WITH the abundance of unnurtured sporting talent in the Helderberg region, let down by a lack of facilities and sporting equipment, a Somerset West businessman decided to take matters into his own hands. And good to his word, Taariq van der Ross, aided by other like-minded people in the area, founded the Sports Foundation Helderberg last week. Taariq says the brand new non-profit organisation is the first of its kind in the region. He explains that the foundation was created to inspire the community through the power of sport, with its main objective being to provide much-needed sporting equipment, coaching and help to improve existing sports facilities where needed. “Sport plays an important role in advancing the lives of the youth in the community,” Taariq says, “but a lack of sporting equipment and professional coaching

is keeping them off the playing fields. “When we mention sport, people automatically think about cricket, rugby or soccer, but we forget that children could have a passion for other sports, and the foundation would like to assist in giving them the opportunity to nurture their talents. “The community’s involvement will be essential, as keeping the youth active will benefit everyone.” The Sports Foundation thanks Carla Winter at Digital Moment Photography Studios, Smart Phone Repairs, Rematch Sport (all situated in Hole in the Wall Centre, Somerset West), Russel Williams of Unathi Community and Youth Development, Play Smart Rugby Coaching, KickStart Cricket Academy, Summit Rugby, GM Cricket and DistrictMail for assisting in the project’s formation.

After lunch they took their score to 147 before losing their last wicket in the 58th over. The best bowlers were Lucian Simpson with 3/24, Stephen Southey with 2/29 and Rudi Bischoff with 2/25. In reply, Somerset West lost the wickets of Peter Baumester and Steve Southey cheaply, but a 63-run fourth- wicket partnership between Lance Ravens and Ebrahiem Gafieldien restored matters before Ravens were bowled for 30. Somerset West eventually reached 151 after 50 overs, having lost their last wicket at 18:20. The home team will go into day two of this match on Saturday with a four-run lead, and will be looking to their bowlers to make early inroads into the batting attack.

The second team, meanwhile, played Ottomans on the B-field, and will have to pull out all the stops to win this match. The visitors won the toss and batted first, scoring 308 runs for the loss of only five wickets. Batting was made easier by the wind and the small field. The bowlers, however, had a torrid time in the wind, with C Bannantyne (2/42), Clive Andrews (1/33) and Christiaan Jooste (2/24) taking wickets. In reply, Somerset West scored 199 all out – 109 runs behind Ottomans – and had the follow-on enforced against them. Adaan Theron (40), Metz Laten (28), Rhys Buchan (24) and Mike Harris (23) top-scored. In the follow-on, Somerset were 16/5 at the close of play, and will need to bat for an extensive period to save the game when the match resumes on Saturday. The third team played Ottomans on the Cfield and lost by six wickets. Somerset West batted first and were skittled for 74. F Said took five wickets for eight runs for Ottomans. The third team play away, and the fourth team are away to St Augustine’s.

HOTTENTOTS Holland Cricket Club (HHCC) beat Macassar by nine wickets in their two-day match that was completed on day one. HHCC, who won the toss, elected to field and soon had Macassar on the back foot. Their bowling attack was spearheaded by Ricardo Naidoo (24/4), and they eventually bowled Macassar out for 76 runs. Gasant Moller also bowled well, carding figures of 16/2. HHCC then went in to bat, but did not fair any better than Macassar on what was a very good batting wicket. HHCC were all bowled out for 79 runs, giving them a narrow lead of only three runs. The only batsmen who were able to put up any resistance were R Rhoda (17) and E Aziz (14). Then, with 44 overs left for the day, HHCC went into the field after some stern words by their coach, Yunus Thomas. His talk seemed to have worked: they immediately made inroads into the Macassar batting lineup, and soon blasted

them all out for a mere 35 runs. W Martin (14/3) and G Moller (3/3) were the chief destroyers. HHCC then went in to bat, and with 24 overs left in the game openers H Slamdien (captain) and R Rhoda scored freely to take HHCC to the brink of victory before Slamdien lost his wicket. The second team beat Bellville by six wickets at the Naval College grounds on Saturday. Bellville batted first and scored 69 all out. The best bowlers were R Apollis (20/3), R Baderoen (16/2) and Z Salie (20/2). HHCC soon passed the score with only four wickets down. The best batsmen were W Likwi (20), M Engelbrecht (16), Z Aziz (16*). The third team beat Mitchells Plain by 61 runs. HHCC batted first and scored 105 all out. The top scorer was N Baderoen with 64 runs. Mitchells Plain were all out for 44. N du Preez (12/4), B Achmat (15/3) and J Fanie (4/2) took the wickets.

RUNNING

Revitalise with the Vital Run at Lourensford this Saturday RUNNERS are once again reminded that the long-awaited Vital Run on Lourensford Wine Estate takes place on Saturday. The 21 km run starts at 06:30, the 10 km at 07:30 and the 10 km walk at 07:35. The four-kilometre fun run kicks off at 07:45. Entries will be accepted on race day at Lourensford from 05:00 to 06:15 (21 km) and from 05:00 to

07:00 (10 km). All proceeds raised on race day will go to Patch, the Helderberg child abuse centre. The organisers, Run/Walk for Life WP Athletics Club in association with Vital Health Foods, have urged participants to get to the start early as they expect even more entrants than the 3 500 who turned up for last year’s event. As there is only one public ac-

cess road into Lourensford, arrangements have been made to avoid traffic congestion. Start times between the 21 km and 10 km races have been extended to enable easier traffic flow, and traffic officers will be deployed on main intersections on the way into Somerset West. Marshals will direct cars to five parking areas on the wine estate.

The 21 km and 10 km races both take place on scenic, off-road routes. Runners can expect a three-kilometre climb at the start of the 21 km route, followed by contouring jeep tracks and farm road below the foot of the Helderberg. The second half is mainly downhill on easy forest and farm roads. The initial five kilometres of the 10 km routes are rough on foot

but worth the effort. The latter half of the course contours back, with a comfortable downhill and level gravel road to the finish. The fun run will follow a different route through the beautiful estate, providing a relatively flat and easy option for all ages. For more information, contact race organiser Marie Barnard on 0 021 852 8473 or 083 713 2858.

Mockè-brothers lead surfski series DAWID Mockè threw the race for the Discovery Sunglass Surfski series wide open when he won his second series title in the Island Tribe Daniel Conradie Memorial race in a gale force southeaster at the Strand on Saturday. With two races left in the series Dawid Mockè and his brother Jasper have both won two races, with Graeme Solomon, Tom Schilperoort and Sean Rice on their tails with solitary victories each and a string of second and third places between them. With the Peninsula being buffeted by the wind, race organiser Herbert Conradie set a course that started in the shelter of Gordon’s Bay before

finishing with a downwind leg at the Strand Surf Lifesaving Club. Dawid Mockè turned up the heat on the downwind leg to shake off the challenge from Sean Rice, Tom Schilperoort and last week’s winner Graeme Solomon. “It was a good race in hard conditions, though having the wind to assist on two of the legs made it a fast race,” said Mockè. Alexa Cole was a comfortable winner in the women’s race with the minor placing being settled between second placed Donia Kamstra and Bianca Beavitt. The men’s doubles race was won by Strand’s Gary Cromie and Pieter

Kruger, followed by Brendon Currin and Willem Erasmus and the now familiar pairing of Daantjie Malan and Pierre-André Rabie. The mixed doubles was won by Nick Rocky and Gill Anderson with husband and wife team of Rob and Liz Hart second. The Series moves to Long Beach Kommetjie for race eight of the series, The Butler’s Pizza LBK Challenge on Sunday 4 December. This is the penultimate event of the series after which paddlers look forward to The Ultra Distance Cape Point Challenge on 17 December. For information visit www.surfski.co.za.

RUGBY COLUMN

What about a Somerset League? SINCE my first article calling for one rugby team in the Strand, there have been some interesting responses. The idea was to get people talking, not only about the possibilities of such a venture, but also about the obstacles. The biggest question obviously remains around the number of players this club could cater for, compared to the number of active rugby players in the Strand. The religious factor is not as big an issue, with the question around gaining “Halal’’ income, under which no liquor could be sold despite the fact that this is a big means of income for many clubs. Among the most realistic suggestions were: to close down the four

Strand clubs and form one club with unified support; or keep the clubs and form a “Somerset League”, with clubs from Macassar to Sir Lowry’s Pass competing in Sunday or Monday matches, and a “Somerset Board” team that would compete on Saturdays with big support. Either option would put the Helderberg clubs in a stronger position to fight for top honours in higher leagues and give the players more exposure. A few months ago on Cape Rugby TV, Jerome Paarwater pointed out that no player below Super B League could realistically be considered to play for Western Province. Professionalism is a big talking point in rugby, but a legend of the game in

the Strand made the notable point that the rugby clubs’ “social responsibility’’ to the community is more important. I tend to agree with him, but why not then make the Somerset Board team the professional division of rugby in the Helderberg? Remember, these are just suggestions from various people, and the onus is solely on the clubs to take it further. Feel free to email me any suggestions. Next week we look at the history of Strand United.

SOCCER COLUMN

Time Out with Ryan THE Football World was stunned this past weekend with the sudden death of Wales manager Gary Speed at the tender age of 42. He is survived by his wife and two teenage sons. Gary was part of the Leeds United team that won the last First Division title before the commencement of the Premier League as we know it today. Gary was 23 years old at the time and went on to play 312 matches for the Elland Road club. He transferred to Everton in 1996 and made 65 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 18 goals. In 1998 he moved to St James’ Park and appeared in over 200 games in the black and white stripes of Newcastle United. Gary also played for Bolton and Sheffield United. Furthermore, he was capped 85 times for Wales, 44 of those as captain. He holds the record for being the first player to make 500 Premier League appearances.

Last year Gary was awarded an MBE for his services to football. He was a true gentleman on and off the field and was highly respected by all his fellow players. He shall be sorely missed. RIP, Gary Speed. On a lighter note, this weekend sees some more exciting games across the globe, starting with second-placed PSV Eindhoven home to fifth-placed Feyenoord in the Dutch Eredivisie. In Spain’s La Liga, second-placed Barcelona host surprise package fourth-placed Levante. It seems for the moment that Mourinho’s magic wand has swung the pendulum in favour of his Real Madrid team, and that Barca will really have their work cut out for them in keeping up with the current league leaders to retain their crown. The Bundesliga dishes up a real treat with first versus second in Borussia Dortmund home to Borussia M’gladbach, as well as third versus fourth seeing Bayern Munich

host Werder Bremen. On the local scene, PSL leagueleaders SuperSport are up against current champions Orlando Pirates. Sundowns, currently second, play host to Kaizer Chiefs, who are in third place. In Cape Town, Ajax are home to Bloemfontein Celtic. Finally, congratulations to last week’s winner of the ProSoccer R100 voucher, Blanche Abrahams, for predicting the one-all draw between Liverpool and Manchester City. The game in the spotlight this weekend is Aston Villa, home to Manchester United. Get those SMSes to 083 229 8583 as soon as possible to stand a chance of winning the voucher. Till next week. Good luck!

Helderberg Cricket Club’s first-team players are (back, from left) Garth Hurling, Owen Thomas, Mario Solomons (player–coach), Daniel Botha, Ibrahiem Latief, Vincent Castle (captain), Mario Bougaard and Fahiem Adonis. In front are Adrian van Reenen, Stephan Mack and Malcolm Stuurman.

HB stutter against Cravenby AFTER an uncharacteristic, lacklustre performance against Cravenby last weekend, Helderberg will be going all out to keep their unbeaten status intact when they continue their match at the Helderzicht sports grounds on Saturday. Cravenby will resume their second innings on 66/2 – an overall lead of 30 runs – and Helderberg will have to pull out all the stops if they want to win this match. Last Saturday Helderberg’s skipper, Vincent Castle, won the toss and asked the visi-

tors to bat first in a howling south-easter that got worse as the day progressed. Opening bowlers Adrian van Reenen and Vincent Castle bowled well and quickly dismissed the top order. At one stage Cravenby were struggling on 30/5, with Van Reenen bagging three wickets and Castle two. However, Cravenby fought back gamely and managed to reach 101 all out after 38 overs, just before the lunch interval. Helderberg were hoping to take the game away from Cravenby in their batting innings,

but the visitors had other ideas. The Helderberg batsmen struggled to come to terms with the disciplined and accurate bowling of the visitors and soon found themselves in deep trouble on 80/7. Captain Vincent Castle (29) and Ibrahiem Latief (40), however, stood firm and helped Helderberg post a slightly more respectable total of 132 runs. With 18 overs left in the day, Helderberg took to the field in the hopes of making some inroads into the batting lineup.

They were, however, unable to do so and were only able to take two wickets before the close of play on day one. This was by far the most disappointing effort by the home team thus far this season, and player–coach Mario Solomons made sure his troops understood both this and the task they have at hand when they regather this Saturday. The player of the day went to Ibrahiem Latief for his sterling batting performance under difficult conditions.
