MELKBAAISTRAND: 10JARIGE VERDRINK
See eis skoolseun
y was nie net my kleinkind nie, hy was soos my eie kind. Sy dood laat ’n groot leemte in my hart, maar sy aansteeklike laggie sal vir ewig in die huis weergalm.” Dít is die woorde van ’n snikkende Minnie Adams (56) van die Strand wat Donderdag (17 Januarie) haar tienjarige kleinseun, Ashley Adonis, aan die dood moes afstaan. Ashley en sy neef, Marchel Adonis (13), het dié dag sonder toesig by Melkbaaistrand in die Strand gaan swem toe hy verdrink het. Volgens Marchel het hulle reguit ná skool huis toe gegaan, hul skoolklere uitgetrek en met hul branderplank strand toe gegaan. “Ons het
pas met ons branderplank die water ingegaan, toe Ashley daarvan afgeval het. Ek het kort daarna ook in die water geval,” vertel Marchel. In ’n poging om Ashley te red, het Marchel hom van onder die water uitgelig.“Hy het my om die nek vasgehou terwyl ek probeer het om kus toe te swem, maar hy was net te swaar en ek kon nie wegkom nie.” Hy het voorts vertel hoe hulle albei toe op hul eie probeer uitswem het. Ashley het vir ’n wyle vinnig agterna gekom, maar toe Marchel weer kyk, het hy net onder die water verdwyn. “Ek het vir mense op die strand om hulp gevra, en ’n man het die polisie ontbied,” het Marchel gesê. Luidens ’n verklaring uitgereik deur die Nasionale Seereddingsinstituut (NSRI), is ’n soektog in
die Melkbaaistrand-gebied voortgesit nadat Ashley deur sy neef as vermis aangemeld is. Ashley se lyk is omstreeks 21:00 die aand onder die water gevind en aan die forensiese patologie-dienste oorhandig, het Johann Lensink van die NSRI Gordonsbaai gesê. ’n Ondersoekdossier is deur die Strand-polisie geopen. Volgens Ashley se ma, Berenice Adonis, het hy tussen 15:30 en 16:00 ná skool by die huis aangekom en vir haar gesê hy gaan strand toe. “Ek het hom gesê hy gaan nêrens. Maar hy het sonder my toestemming en medewete tog gegaan,” het die hartseer ma gesê. Volgens ouma Minnie, wat Ashley grootgemaak en alles voorsien het, gaan sy hom verskriklik baie mis. “Hy was ’n goeie kind – baie gewillig, hardwerkend, het vir niks teruggestaan nie, menslik en vriendelik. Hy het nooit die huis verlaat sonder om ’n gebed op te sê
nie, en nooit sonder Ashley Adonis (10) gebed gaan slaap nie. “Hy het beslis ’n baie spesiale plek in my hart.” Ashley se skoolhoof, Martin Leukes van Dr. G.J. Joubert Primêre Skool, sê hy was ’n goeie leerling wat altyd baie stil was. “Ashley het verlede jaar ’n diploma vir goeie vordering in geletterdheid verwerf.” Volgens Marchel, wat by die skool berading ontvang van ’n sielkundige van die onderwysdepartement, was Ashley ’n goeie maatjie, en gaan hy beslis hul saamspeel mis. Ashley se begrafnis is gister (23 Januarie) in die VG Kerk Strand gehou.

Rocky waters for Blue Flag status?
NIKITA SYLVESTER Helderberg residents are concerned that Bikini Beach in Gordon’s Bay may be at risk of losing its Blue Flag status due to the “absurd” number of rocks covering the shore. Art Ridgway, who has been fishing in the area for over 40 years, suggests that this problem could have something to do with the dredging. “Sand gets moved all the time, so it could have an effect on the beach on the other side of the harbour,” explains Ridgway, adding that there would be a number of other factors to consider too. As a result of the rock problem, he feels that Bikini Beach is no longer worthy of its Blue Flag status. “This is not a Blue Flag beach. Kids cry when they swim here. It is dangerous for all swimmers. Bikini beach was once a beautiful beach; now it’s barren.” The City of Cape Town’s MayCo member for Community Services, Tandeka Gqada, said that Bikini Beach falls within an originally rocky shore – rocks are the natural coastline, but sediment transport (including beach sand) within a bay is driven by circulation caused by long-shore currents. The same would happen in Gordon’s Bay. Therefore, sand at this location would have originally been continually removed and replenished naturally. However, with the construction of the harbour, and mainly the harbour wall, this circulation was cut off. Due to this, there was no process for sand removal, resulting in the formation of a sandier beach – what is known today as Bikini Beach. “The challenge with this situation is that the natural, rocky shore still remains, and the large deposits of rock on the beach stems from the natural occurrence of rocks on this section of the coast,” she said. Over the years, the City has been responding to public requests by moving the rocks out of
NEWS SUMMARY According to the Blue Flag website: Beaches are awarded Blue Flag status based on compliance with 32 criteria covering the following: Residents and visitors to Bikini Beach in Gor don’s Bay enduring the rocky terrain. the bathers’ way, or by moving sand to cover the boulders. “These measures are being carried out in order to provide a comfortable beach for visitors. Bikini Beach therefore requires ongoing intervention. “It must also be emphasised that, short of removing the harbour wall, the City will have to continue with these measures in perpetuity. “The situation at Bikini Beach will not jeopardise its Blue Flag status,” Gqada stated.

Distraught family and friends gathered in the United Reformed Church in Strand on Wednesday to say farewell to Ashley Adonis (10). This Gr. 4 pupil at Dr. G.J. Joubert Primary School drowned at Strand’s Melkbaai Beach on Thursday. Pastor Jetro Cloete conducted the service and Martin Leukes, principal, shared an obituary. - page 2 Neither Metrorail nor the City of Cape Town are prepared to take responsibility for repairing a hole in the steps in the subway at the Somerset West train station. According to Mthuthuzeli Swartz, Metrorail regional manager, the subway belongs to the City. MayCo member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater Brett Herron says the subway was constructed by Metrorail and it has never been maintained by the City. - page 4

Almal duik weg oor groot gat ILLANA FRANTZ Nóg Metrorail, nóg die Stad Kaapstad wil die verantwoordelikheid aanvaar om ’n 4 m diep gat reg te maak in ’n trap in die duikweg van die Somerset-Wes-stasie. Jannie du Toit het verlede week van die gat bewus geword en DistriksPos daaroor ingelig. Hy sê die gat hou ’n groot gevaar vir mense in. “Dit is omtrent 4 m diep en dit is gevaarlik. Dit moet dringend reggemaak word, maar niemand wil verantwoordelikheid daarvoor vat nie,” het hy gesê. Volgens Mthuthuzeli Swartz, Metrorail streeksbestuurder, behoort die duikweg aan die Stad Kaapstad. “Die duikweg dien as ’n straat-totstraat-deurgang en behoort dus aan die stad.” Hy het bygevoeg dat die probleem onder die betrokke departement van die stad se aandag gebring sal word. “Ons het ook PRASA CRES (Corporate Real Estate Solutions) wat vir
die bestuur van die fasiliteite by die spoorlyne verantwoordelik is, genader om hul samewerking aan die stad te gee.” Brett Herron, burgemeesterskomiteelid vir vervoer, paaie en stormwater, het egter gesê dat die duikweg wel Metrorail se verantwoordelikheid is. “Die duikweg is deur Metrorail opgerig en dit verskaf ook primêre toegang tot die stasie. Die duikweg is ook nog nooit deur die stad onderhou nie,” het hy gesê. Herron het bygevoeg dat hy die saak met Metrorail en PRASA CRES sal opneem om te verseker dat die probleem opgelos sal word. ’n Bekommerde ouer, Natashja Brighton vrees vir die kinders se veiligheid. “Baie kinders gebruik die trein en gaan in Somerset-Wes skool. Tans hou dit ’n groot gevaar vir hulle in. Nie net vir die kinders nie, maar vir groot mense ook. “Ek wonder of iemand nou eers daarin moet val en seerkry voordat iets daaraan gedoen gaan word,” het sy gesê.
Jannie du Toit kyk na die gat in die trappe by die SomersetWesstasie se duikweg.
Inwoners is besorg oor die veiligheid van pen delaars wat van die duikweg gebruik maak.
Murdered days after starting a new life The body parts of a 16-year-old girl who lived in Kraaifontein were discovered in an abandoned building near Firgrove last week. Charmaine Mare, who is originally from Kriel in Mpumalanga, came to live in Kraaifontein on 3 January to study art and work part time. The woman who she was living with, went away on a boat cruise on 7 January and Charmaine was left to stay with the woman’s boyfriend. When the woman returned on 11 January, Charmaine was nowhere to be found and was reported missing. “Police officers were called to the scene in Kraaifontein on 14 January where a passer-by found the burnt body of a young girl.

Would-be hijacker takes pity on victim JAMEY THOMAS An elderly man from Somerset West fell victim to an attempted hijacking in broad daylight while en route to his home on Thursday 17 January. According to Thomas Brett (72), who has been living in the Briza area for more than 32 years, the incident occurred around 12:00 in Little Street. With the window down and his arm resting on the door, Thomas was driving down the street relatively slowly. However, about 20 m before he reached the stop street to turn into Smuts Avenue, a man suddenly stepped off the sidewalk into the road. “While approaching the bakkie, he was making some hand gestures at me, urging me to slow down. Since he was neatly dressed and looked like he needed some help, I stopped,” said Thomas. Thomas thought that the man was going to ask for some directions, but then “all hell broke loose”. “He came up to the window and I remember thinking ‘I wonder what this man wants’, when a knife suddenly appeared in his right hand. The blade then sliced through my arm.” Out of fear that the man would do him more harm with the blade, which he estimated to be 20 cm long, Thomas moved towards the passenger’s side. According to Thomas his attacker saw this as the perfect opportunity to help himself to his bakkie’s key. After grabbing the key, he also demanded money.
Farmworkers’ strike suspended NIKITA SYLVESTER Cosatu Western Cape confirmed the suspension of the long drawn out strike action of all farmworkers in the province. In a press statement released on Tuesday, Cosatu claims that the strike was called off last week to give Agri-SA the opportunity to get a mandate to the CCMA to consider the terms for ending exploitation on farms, as put forward by striking workers. AgriSA responded to say that they were not interested in discussing the workers’ demands. “We are calling off the strike actions in all areas, so that workers can evaluate the victories that they have gained, and plan more carefully for the way forward,” added Tony Ehrenreich, Cosatu secretary. He said however that they are grateful for the minimum wage increase of more than R100 by national government as of 1 March 2013. “We hope that this increase is decent and ensures that workers can sustain their families. “Cosatu will continue to be available to assist all workers and organisations, and will be coordinating the mother of all strikes against bad farmers, for later this year – should an agreement not be reached in agriculture, with farmers, around living wages, decent conditions on farms, and comprehensive land reform.” Despite the 21 arrests made at Lourensford Estate in Somerset West on 9 January 2013 during the latest strike action, Somerset West police spokesperson, Constable Suzan Jantjies, confirmed the area to be quiet. “We are always on high alert as police vans continue to patrol the area,” said Jantjies. The accused appeared in court on 11 January and were released on a warning. Their next court appearance is on 26 March.
“He took my wallet, as well as my cellphone which was visible in my shirt pocket.” Before the attacker could make off with his possessions, Thomas pleaded that he just return his driver’s licence. “I don’t know exactly what I said or how I said it, but somehow this man felt for me. Maybe it was my age. He then threw my keys and driver’s licence over the bakkie, close to the pavement,” explained Thomas, who was surprised that his keys were returned since he had been convinced that the attacker would take off with his bakkie. While he got out of the bakkie to collect the items, the attacker ran away. It was only then that Thomas realised his arm was bleeding and his clothes were covered in An indication blood. “Luckily there was no money in my wallet, but I had to stop all my bank cards and my cellphone account. After notifying my wife, I also reported the incident to the police,” said Thomas. Despite his anger over the fact that an innocent person meaning to do good was violated and harmed, Thomas says that he is grateful to have survived the horrific ordeal. He would
of more or less where the incident occurred. like to implore people not to be complacent. “This can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Be alert.” The Somerset West police have confirmed that a case of robbery is being investigated and no one has of yet been arrested in connection with the incident. Anyone with additional information can contact Detective Warrant Officer Deon Klaasen on 021 850 1331.

Mother of four hit by police car in Strand JAMEY THOMAS The Strand police has confirmed the identity of the pedestrian which was struck down and killed by one of their own in the Strand on Friday 14 December. The incident occurred around 17:45 in Main Road. A Somerset West couple, who witnessed the accident whilst driving to the beach with a friend, related the incident to DistrictMail last week. According to them a woman had stopped in the middle of the road (on the white line) in an attempt to get to the other side when
suddenly they noticed a speeding police vehicle approaching. The driver of the car said that the police vehicle was approaching at a very high speed in the middle of the road, and although he slowed down and moved as far left as he could in order for the police van to pass them, the pedestrian’s fate was inevitable. One of the witnesses recalls the pedestrian being hit by the van and flung high into the air like a rag doll, landing face down on the tar road. With the intention to act as a witness for the woman, the couple reported the incident to the Strand police station the next morning
around 10:45. The Strand police confirmed that a case of culpable homicide had been opened against the driver of the SAPS vehicle and that the case is being investigated by the Independent Police Investigating Directorate. Although the police did not want to disclose too much information regarding the incident pending the investigation, they finally confirmed this week that 63-year-old Margaret Elizabeth Gall – a mother of four from Rusthof, Strand – died tragically in the accident. The family, however, could not be reached for comment.

Diewe teiken N2/G’baai-aansluiting ILLANA FRANTZ Motoriste wat gereeld van die N2-aansluiting by Gordonsbaai en Sir Lowry’s Pass gebruik maak, word gewaarsku teen ’n nuwe euwel wat daar sy kop uitsteek.
STOLEN: Strand resident Mike Dube needs the public’s assistance in finding his grey Fiat Uno which was stolen last week. Mike’s two door car with regis tration number CA 583354 was last seen in Strand on Tuesday 15 January at 10:00. People with information can phone the Strand police on 021 854 9100 or Mike on 073 675 8251.
Volgens Gwenda Solomon word motoriste by die oorgang deur diewe geteiken. Sy self was verlede maand byna ’n slagoffer en het vertel van haar eie voorval toe sy aan die begin van Desember op pad huis toe was. “By die verkeerslig was daar ’n jong man wat vir ’n geleentheid gevra het. Ek het hom geïgnoreer en skielik het hy my kar met klippe gegooi. Ek het nie gedink dit was nodig om die saak by die polisie aan te meld nie, aangesien ek kort daarna gery het toe die lig
na groen verander het.” Solomon moes egter die afgelope Vrydag weer van dié oorgang gebruik maak, waar sy ooggetuie was vir wat moontlik vroeër met haar kon gebeur het. Sy het dieselfde man by die oorgang gesien en was op haar hoede ingeval die man haar weer met klippe wou bestook. Hy het egter die vrou in die motor agter haar geteiken. “In my truspieël het ek gesien hoe hy haar kar se deur oopruk, haar handsak gryp en toe by een van die karre agter in die ry inklim.” Solomon sê die vrou wat in die tweede motor agter haar gesit het, het toe uitgeklim en na die voertuig geloop waarin die man geklim het. Die man het uitgespring en weggehardloop en het hom agternagesit. “Die slagoffer het verslae in haar kar gesit
Fraudster behind bars once again NIKITA SYLVESTER Nearly a month after numerous Helderberg businesses were conned out of thousands of rands, the alleged conman finds himself behind bars once again. Alleged fraudster and Strand resident, Colin Rall, was arrested on 22 December 2012 after disappearing with a large sum of money belonging to various businesses that had sponsored his fictitious Helderberg Wheels and Outdoor Expo (HWO). Hundreds of visitors and exhibitors arrived for the expo which was meant to take place from Friday 30 November – Sunday 2 December 2012 at the Charles Morkel Stadium in Strand, but were met by locked gates, deserted sports grounds and the event organiser Rall nowhere to be found. Months before Rall advertised the event throughout the Helderberg and beyond to be a weekend of fun and entertainment for the whole family, as well as a charity outreach. Rall not only conned business owners but also his only employee, Charné Prins, and his wife who claims she was unaware of his whereabouts after he disappeared with the money. Several fraud charges were made against Rall which led to his arrest on 22 December 2012. Strand police have confirmed that three fraud charges relating to the HWO expo are currently being investigated. According to police officers, Rall was seen walking in Strand Road when the officers im-

mediately recognised his face and arrested him. Rall claims that he was on his way to the police station at the time to certify documents. So far Rall has made two court appearances at the Strand Magistrate’s Court, the first on 24 December and again on 3 January 2013. He remains in police custody at Pollsmoor Prison until his next court appearance on 22 February.
en huil. Ek was te bang om haar te help, maar toe die lig na groen verander, het ek reguit na die Gordonsbaai-polisie gery om die saak aan te meld,” het Solomon gesê. “As ’n jong vrou is ek nou selfs bedags te bang om by ’n verkeerslig te stop, want dit het in spitsverkeer om 17:00 gebeur. Ek voel hierdie oorgang is gevaarlik omdat ’n mens so lank moet wag vir die lig om na groen te verander.” Adjudant-offisier Nico Beukes, woordvoerder van die Gordonsbaai-polisie, het mense aangemoedig om sulke voorvalle aan te meld. “As mense dit nie rapporteer nie, dan sal ons nie daarvan weet nie en gevolglik kan ons dan nie die spesifieke area as ’n hotspot identifiseer nie. Indien ons daarvan weet, kan ons die nodige stappe neem om dit te probeer verhoed.”
Busy time for police The festive season is often a busy period for police, as crime increases due to homes being left unattended by residents on vacation. Lwandle police reported a busy season, with almost four times the usual number of arrests made for possession of drugs and drunken driving. Constable Mthokozisi Gama, Lwandle police spokesperson, says the increase in these arrests was due to increased policing, with several road blocks held during December, along with increased patrols. Spokesperson for the Somerset West police, constable Suzan Jantjies, says they experienced a slight increase in crime over the festive season. Macassar police spokesperson, Constable Chrisy Young, says police patrols also paid off in their area. “There was a general decrease in crime compared to last year. This might be due to a number of imbizos and awareness events held before the festive season last year. The public has also been very helpful in reporting crime.” Strand police spokesperson, Colonel Eugene Zama, says the Strand experienced an increase in theft out of motor vehicles in the first week in December, but after increasing police visibility, these soon stopped.

Report bad drivers to the authorities After being back at work for a few weeks now, most Helderbergers will surely agree that the holidays are already a distant memory. Unfortunately so to are our quiet streets. Now that most people are back at work and school, our streets are once again filled with aggressive and selfish drivers. There seems to be more and more bad drivers on our road every year and less and less being done by traffic officials to curb this affliction. Instead of joining the ever increasing number of these lawless drivers why don’t we do something about them. For starters,it will help if we all make a concerted effort to obey the rules of the road and report repeated offenders to the authorities. If enough motorists keep on reporting these bad drivers, surely something will be done.
Use organic herbicide Everybody in the Helderberg is being sprayed with dangerous chemicals on a daily basis without their consent. Many people suffer from allergic reactions to these chemicals. The spraying on the vineyards and fruit farms causes huge environmental damage, as well as the municipality spraying weed killer along the roads and around shops. Garden services should promote organic and individual homes should be careful. Clearing of alien vegetation along rivers using herbicide seems a very counterproductive way of doing things. The rivers and seas are very polluted.

Heartfelt thanks for saving our dog We live in Seaview Road, Somerset West which is a very busy street as it is the main access to Beaumont Primary School. Somehow our little Schnauzer got out of the gate one morning and ran into the street. A very kind lady called us over our intercom camera at the gate to ask whether we were missing a dog as a little grey dog was running in the street amidst heavy traffic. Thank goodness we were able to run out of our property, where the lady was waiting and she indicated to us that our dog was running into Mountain Road. Fortunately we were able to get him back without our dog being harmed. But we were so distressed that we never asked this very caring and kind lady for her name and telephone number. Please may we use the DistrictMail to convey our heartfelt thanks to this kind person. When you are elderly, as in our case, our pet becomes very precious. Thank you and thank you again.

) Wat die vullisstorting hier langs die kanaal betref, is die mense wat die jongens huur teen minimale bedrag wat die vullis daar stort.

Diewe merk só hul prooi in Strand-Noord Die SAPD het al in die verlede mense in die Strand-Noord-area gewaarsku om hul oë oop te hou vir snaakse items wat voor hul huise of op die sypaadjie gelos word. Dit is gewoonlik skelms of sindikate wat jou huis vir ’n diefstal merk. Einde Augustus verlede jaar is die eienaar van die huis waar ek bly met vakansie en ek het onderneem om na die plante buite om te sien. Drie dae later is ’n broodboom van die stoep gesteel. Die ander, veel groter broodboom in ’n ewe groter pot, (wat beslis nie deur een
mens hanteer kan word nie), het agter gebly. En juis daarom het ek geglo dat dit gespaar sou bly. Helaas, twee weke later word ’n swaar, wit sementbeeldjie skuins agter die pot op die stoep ontdek, net sigbaar van die straat af. Dus is die pot “gemerk” en sou seker kort voor lank met genoeg hande agter op ’n bakkie gelaai word. As die beeldjie as ’n geskenk bedoel was, dan wag jy seker tot die mense terug is van verlof? Die huismense is in elk geval nie beeldjiemense nie. Die beeldjie is dus ook
Dank aan mnr. Goosen vir hulp As ouers van die tieners wat betrokke was by die tragiese voorval wat op 27 Desember 2012 by die Helderberg Reservaat afgespeel het, wil ons graag vir mnr. Goosen, wat hulp verleen het aan ons kinders tydens die tragedie, van harte bedank. Die hulp en ondersteuning wat
u aan ons kinders op die berg gebied het, kan ons nie in woorde omskryf wat dit vir hul beteken het nie. Ons vra mnr. Goosen om ons asseblief by 082 889 0048 te kontak. Ons sal u graag persoonlik wil bedank.
Big thank you to staff of Disa BP On the evening of 24 December my Volkswagen Beetle set alight while standing at the traffic light opposite Disa BP, situated next to the Lord Charles hotel. The staff of Disa BP were extremely fast to arrive with fire extinguishers and so doing prevented my car from totally burning out. I just want to take this opportu-
nity to sincerely thank the staff for their quick reaction and willingness to help. You guys always give great service and you have an awesome management team. Know that you are greatly appreciated!

Give them a rose for community work With the advent of the new year, it would be appropriate to acknowledge the contribution made by Earl and Mrs Rose towards community enhancement during the past year. Not only has the fish and chips place benefited substantially from
a make-over, but we now also have a spanking new set of traffic lights. These traffic lights are at an erstwhile uncontrolled and at times somewhat problematic traffic junction in Gordon’s Bay.

Judicial system benefits criminals Your articles in a recent DistrictMail about a con-man Mr Rall amazes me. People seem to be extremely naive and so for that matter is our judicial system! Here is a man who was convicted of fraud, condemned and locked up, then freed, and no sooner set free again commits fraud and is locked up again, freed again and starting the thing over again, and every body trusts him, claiming “how is it possible...!” while nobody dares to say that our judges are weak and part and parcel of the increase of criminal activity. Are we the country where one can get away with murder on condition we show remorse and explain things thoroughly! Not that one is asking for the death penalty to be reinstated, which is another point of discussion, but being too lenient on criminals doesn’t stop them and makes them laugh at our weak judicial system, where more compassion is shown towards criminals than towards offended parties!

With help from the Helderberg community, a Christmas celebration was made a reality.
The Somerset West night shelter hosted its annual Christmas party on 25 December 2012. The management committee of the shelter would like to thank all the staff and volunteers, especially JOY Christian magazine, NG congregation Helderberg and the Erinvale Care and Hope Organisation (Echo), for their contribution and generous donations. The evening was a great success with the residents at the night shelter experiencing the joy and happiness that comes with Christmas and some good will from the Helderberg community.

LOTTO BUYS NEW WHEELS: Warrant Officer Gert van der Merwe, a police de tective from Gordon’s Bay, won the lotto early in January. With the just over R1 mil lion, he bought his girlfriend, Serene Naude, a new vehicle from Rola Toyota. But that’s where Van der Merwe’s spending spree ended. “I’m using the money to pay off my house, and buy a second car. The rest I’ve already invested.” Van der Mer we says he also has no plans to give up his job. “I’ve seen what money can do to people, and I’m not going to change my life. I’m going to stay the same person.” Pictured are Van der Merwe and Naude at Rola Toyota. PHOTO: SUPPLIED
Ek weet nie van julle nie, maar klokslag elke Januarie – gewoonlik so in die derde, vierde week – skrik ek een oggend wakker met ’n oorweldigende begeerte om ’n vegetariër te word.
Ek besef nou dit is waarskynlik net ’n reaksie op al die oordaad en leeglê van die feesgety, want hierdie oomblik van waansin duur gewoonlik nie te lank nie. Na ’n paar dae van fanaties blare kou, word ek gewoonlik gekonfronteer met die feite van die lewe. FEIT EEN is die onveranderbare gegewe dat ek getroud is met ’n Namibiër. Geen kans om van vleis weg te kom in ons huis nie! FEIT TWEE is die onomstootlike werklikheid dat ons in ’n wêrelddeel woonagtig is met die beste klimaat op die planeet. Mens KAN eenvoudig nie anders in sonnige Suid-Afrika as om oor naweke te BRAAI nie! Die DERDE FEIT – en ek glo dis nie net ’n urban legend nie – is die feit dat dit tien teen een gevaarlik is om die slaai en tamatie in jou bord te eet wanneer jy kos in ’n restaurant bestel. Want jy weet voor jou siel dieselfde stukkie slaai en tamatie was ’n halfuur gelede op iemand anders se bord, waar dit meesal ongeëet bly lê het. En die ou voor hom. En die ou voor hom. Wat as elkeen van daai ouens net EEN HAP gevat het? O hel! Nee wat. Gimnasium toe gaan, oukei. Matigheid voor oë hou, miskien. Maar om ’n vegetariër te word sal vir ewig en altyd vir my ’n onmoontlike ideaal bly. Weens redes geheel en al buite my beheer.

12 Distrikspos Heavyweight doesn’t deter wasp
24 Januarie, 2013
Somerset West resident Fennis Parkinson was in awe of the scene that played out in front of her this past weekend. She observed a 40 mm spider hunting wasp dragging a paralised huntsman spider on the couch to the kitchen on Saturday afternoon. “Realising we might get stung, we put her on a magazine and precariously took her into the garden. She was still attached to her prey,” told Parkinson. “Pulling her spider, she proceeded to race towards the pool, so I interfered and placed her at the other end of the pool. I was exhausted watching her pull such a heavy-weight over such a distance, up
walls, over bricks until she found her nest under the shed.” In a second incident over the weekend, Parkinson saw the same female wasp with an even bigger spider come from the direction of the pool pump. The wasp was intent on heading for the shed. “I followed her and she managed to stuff this huge creature through a small space under the floor boards. This wasp, I believe, is from the pompilidae family,” said this nature enthusiast. Parkinson, who lives in Briza, Somerset West would like to get in contact with people who know more about this wasp and spider. Phone her on 082 939 1242.

This forms part of the exciting programme planned for the first new-look Stellenbosch Wine Festival this year. “We very often have visitors asking if they can visit our stables or get to meet some of our beautiful race horses and it’s usually not possible as we don’t want to do anything to upset the routines of the new moms and babies or our champion sire, VAR,” says Mickleburgh. However, on Monday 28 January guests will be given the opportunity to walk along the paddocks and to the stables for a Q & A session with Mickleburgh and a viewing of VAR.

Decision time for Music Society The annual meeting of the Somerset West Music Society takes place on Sunday 27 January at 18:00 in the Library hall. This year, important decisions on which the continuance of the society could depend will be put to a vote. “Over the last few seasons the society has seen a substantial decrease in membership numbers (from 65 to 44) due to long standing members moving from the area or sadly passing away. In addition the present economic climate has had a detrimental effect on the society’s finances due to increasing fees demanded by artists, plus the Library Hall piano is old and requires regular expensive maintenance,” said Essie Koekemoer, society chairperson. She added that in order to guarantee the society remains viable, membership subscriptions must be raised, and a new fee structure for membership has been proposed. All members are urged to attend this important meeting, also any non members who may be interested in joining or offering sponsorship to the society. In a departure from the usual format, the
MeganGeoffrey Prins evening will commence with a short piano recital by 22 year old Megan-Geoffrey Prins, a regular and popular performer for the society, who travels to Cleveland (USA) at the end of the month to audition for a place and scholarship at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The business of the AGM will follow the recital, after which drinks and light refreshments will be served. Phone 021 856 1847 for more information.

Fun and goods a plenty at Root44
The weather was perfect this past Saturday during the Root44 Market held at the Audacia Wine Estate on the R44. Visitors from all over could indulge in the various stalls available to them, including takeaways, fruit and vegetables, bakery and design. There were also activities to entertain the children, while the parents could shop, eat or relax with a glass of wine while listening to the sounds of the bands who performed in the grassed amphitheatre.

Avoid financial hardship As the new year kicks off and economic conditions remain as tough as ever, borrow and manage your debt wisely to avoid becoming over-indebted, warns the National Debt Mediation Association (NDMA). “It’s tempting to buy things you might not otherwise be able to afford on credit, but debt can be a major drain on your finances and dent your long-term financial goals,” says NDMA CEO, Magauta Mphahlele. She says just because lenders may be willing to give you a loan, doesn’t mean you should take up the loan or the full amount offered. “Before taking on credit make sure that you have enough money to cover your regular expenses, emergencies and future price increases,” she adds. Important expenses to consider include household and car maintenance, school fees, transport, food and municipality bills. It is also important to set money aside or have insurance to cover emergencies like illness, death and retrenchment. Consumers can approach the NDMA for advice if they are not sure of what their rights or options are. Tips for borrowing wisely ) Understand your rights and obliga-
tions: This will ensure that you make the right decisions. Also, know your options and where to go in case problems arise. ) Borrow within your means: Only borrow what you can afford and try as much as possible to borrow for essential things like a house, a car, small business, education etc. ) Make your payments on time and in full: You may think missing a payment is not a big deal, but doing so without the lender’s permission will negatively impact your credit rating and you could pay more interest in the long run. ) Understand how much interest you will pay: The amount of the loan and the time you take to repay the loan will have a big impact on how much you’ll spend over the life of the loan. Make sure you understand how interest is calculated and what the loan will cost you after all other fees and charges are included. ) Read the small print: Don’t feel pressurised into signing a loan agreement without taking the time to understand the conditions. It’s also your right to ask an independent person to explain the terms to you in the contract before you sign.

Gifts for kids at church On 20 December 2012, Heyns de Waal from Rola Toyota handed out Christmas presents to the children of the United Reformed Church in the Strand. All the presents were collected by Rola Toyota staff members who willingly opened their hearts to this cause.
Not only did Father Christmas arrive to hand the unsuspecting little ones their gifts, but the presents were also transported and dropped off by flashing lights and sirens from GBMED rescue. Both Rola Toyota and GBMED are fervent supporters of the church’s weekly soup kitchen.

St. Georges make sweeping changes Following an unbalanced and challenging 2012 season, St. Georges RFC in Strand made drastic changes to both executive management and coaching staff to rectify the situation. The major change is that Wilbur Kraak is the newly appointed head coach for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Kraak hails from Mamre in the Cape, having completed his studies at Potchefstroom University where his coaching career also started. In 2010 he returned to Mamre and coached Hamlets for two years. He later took up the position of coaching the Koshuis league team and was later recruited by Maties to coach Victorians in the Western Province Super A League for the 2012 season. Willem van der Meer will take care of the u.20 team. Smith Petersen, Patrick Booysen, Deon Isaacs, Lyndon Julius and Jeremy Jansen make up the rest of the coaching staff. Winston Baard will act as the club’s coaching advisor.
The new coaching staff at St. georges include (from left) Lyndon Julius (St. Georges 1st team assistant coach), Henry Cloete (St. Georges vice chairman), Wilbur Kraak (St. Georges 1st team head coach), Jeremy Jansen (St. Georges fitness and conditioning coach) and Willem van der Meer (St. Georges under 20 coach). The St. Georges 2013/2014 coaching and support staff are as follows: first team – head coach – Wilbur Kraak; assistant coach –Lyndon Julius; fitness and conditioning coach – Jeremy Jansen; managers – Ismail Davids and Morne Simons. Important dates for St. Georges: 28 January – friendly against a Zambian touring team
at Charles Morkel; 23 February – morning camp at Strand High; 2 March – friendly vs Wesbank (Malmesbury); 9 March – friendly vs Eersterivier (Kleinvlei Sportsgrounds); 15 – 17 March – pre-season camp for 25 elite players; 23 March – friendly vs Hamlets (Mamre Sportsgrounds); and 6 April – WP Premier A League starts.

Southeaster favourable for geelbek at Hangklip I received several reports this weekend of good catches of kob along our shores although many of the fish had to be released as they were under size.
Keen young Strand angler Matthew Wake field with two good size musselcrackers caught in Struisbaai during the December holidays. Matthew’s father Mark also caught two crackers of about the same size during the festive season.
There were however several good size geelbek bagged on Melk Bay Beach on Sunday. One of these large fish was caught by well-known Strand angler Hugo Krynauw. Only the odd kob, dassie and white stump were landed from Blake’s Beach and most of the fish were taken on prawn bait. The Toring reef in Harmony delivered a couple of kob in the 4 kg to 6 kg class. There were also some dassie and white stump caught here. I noticed that there were some cuttle fish backbones washed up all along our beach this weekend. This is always a good sign of the presence of geelbek in our bay. The cuttle fish has an internal calcareous cuttle bone which is often found on our beaches and given to cage birds to peck at for added calcium. Anglers and other beach goers should look out for blue bottles which are usually washed out onto the beaches at this time of year. This has not yet occurred this season but the blue bottles are expected soon. Most of the spinnermen that frequent our
beaches and reefs are still expecting good runs of elf, but to date only a few smaller Leervis have been beached, although a number of very large fish have been sighted close to the reefs. Small crafts in the Poort and in Melk Bay have been plagued with small kob and have had to return these small fish to the sea. With the southeasterly prevailing, good catches of geelbek were reported from Hangklip in the evening and morning. The southeast is the correct condition for anglers to fish from small craft at Hangklip. The professional and weekend boatmen could not go to sea on Saturday and Sunday due to the heavy southeast winds. These fishermen are eagerly awaiting good weather and the tunny to return from the west and the deep. There is a noticeable improvement in the behaviour of shore anglers since prohibiting alcohol on our beaches. The littering of glass bottles has also lessened. Most of the unnatural debris such as plastic etc should be collected manually creating employment. Mechanical collecting of seaweed is costly and the machine clears away tons of sand. Seaweed should in any case be left to dry
naturally to form a matrix preventing the sand blowing around. Mechanical cleaning pulverizes the sand granuals which in this minute form blows everywhere. The rest of the globe has stopped mechanical cleaning. We do not want our beach to be stony like Bikini Beach. Due to the slack fishing period that we experienced of late, some interesting facts were recited to me by Steve Champion who has been spinning for yellow tail from the ledges at Rooikranz, Cape Point since he was 11 years of age. He said that in 1952 there were very few yellowtail caught for a period of six weeks, by old timers like the Boshoff brothers, himself and the legendary Fanie Schoeman, author of the book STRIKE. Steve said he was 15 years when on Saturday and Sunday 28 and 29 March an unprecedented run of yellowtail occurred due to massive schools of sardine that were cornered in Buffel’s Bay. That weekend around 500 yellowtail from 17 to 20 lb+ were caught. On the first day of this run Steve had 22 fish, but was beaten by Louis Boshoff by one fish. On Sunday Steve had another 11 fish, a remarkable feat for a young boy. The run continued after the weekend but Steve had to attend school.

Helderberg Pirates pulverise poor Phillies with potent pitching Helderberg Pirates Baseball Club’s teams had a very successful weekend winning four out of their five games. The first side were very impressive against Kenfac Phillies beating them by the mercy rule with 17 points to 7. Pitching proved to be Phillies’ downfall. Bradley de Waal pitched for Pirates and excelled throughout his six frames with most of the opposition’s runs coming off two costly errors. Kenfac’s pitchers could not match the

class of Brad and the Pirates batters pounced at the opportunity. SP Griebenouw had two impressive hits which brought in valuable runs causing Pirates to open up too big a gap for Phillies to recover. Darren Burns had to throw just one frame before the umpire called the ball game. Pirates are beginning to pick up steam and with a beautiful day and with good baseball being played, it looks like this year will have great things in store for Helderberg Pirates Baseball Club.
The junior teams were back in action this week for their first matches of the new year and got off to a great start with the u.10 team beating Silvertree by 15 points to 7. The u.14 team also won their game with a narrow 7 to 3 victory over Kenfac Phillies. A strong Athlone team proved too good for the masters team and they lost the match 12–7. The second side managed to beat Thistles 6–2 in a very close match which saw Greg Cleaver keep the visitors down to only two runs to let the Pirates steal some runs.
Somerset West well placed against Langa Somerset West Cricket Club (SWCC) first team will start day two of their match against Langa on Saturday with a handy 52 run lead and nine wickets still in tact. The match started at Radloff Park in Somerset West on Saturday 19 January and was the start of the first two-day league matches for the Somerset West Cricket Club in 2013. After winning the toss and electing to bat first, SWCC made a solid start getting to lunch with only three wickets down and 100 runs on the scoreboard. After lunch the home team added a further 75 runs to their total in their allotted 60 first innings overs and did so without losing another wicket. The top run scorers were Peter Baumeister 50 not out, Leniel Trezziers 35 and Shaun
Dicks 66 (not out) providing the main bulk of runs for the team. The batting partnerships were as follows: Baumeister/Trezaziers (66 runs) and Baumeister/Dicks, (87 runs not out). Then for the first time this season SWCC bowled with the new Protea ball and found it to their liking. Although the ball did not swing or seam, the host club’s bowlers still managed to bowl Langa out for 136 leaving them with a 39 run lead. The pick of the bowlers were: Ben Nel 8-3-25, Jacques Fourie 7-3-26 and James Wilshere 9-2-25. This then left just 40 minutes in the day in which SWCC had to bat in their second innings. They ended the day on 13/1 with an overall lead of 52.

I remember when I joined Somerset West Cricket Club (SWCC) for the first time as a high school boy in 1990 there were six teams at the club. Now there are only three. This is sad, as SWCC is over 100 years old and a founding member of the Western Province Cricket Association. SWCC is however not the only club in the Helderberg with this problem. I’m sure Helderberg, Hottentots-Holland, Macassar and Sir Lowry’s Pass will all tell you that the numbers of senior club cricketers in the Helderberg region has steadily dropped over the past 20 years. There are a number of reasons for this. One of them being that we no longer have any of our clubs playing in the higher WPCA leagues. Only Helderberg is playing in the 1C league and everyone is holding thumbs for them to get promoted to 1B. Five seasons ago SWCC, Helderberg and Hottentots-Holland were all playing in the 1B and 1C leagues. Having clubs playing in the higher leagues give youngsters a reason to stay in the Helderberg. Many of our talented local players currently play club cricket in the Cape Town area, as there are better opportunities there. Another reason may also be the mismanagement of club funds and facilities. Another reason may be the lack of qualified coaches at some clubs. Most young players who join a club have ambitions of playing in the first team, but sometimes a lack of coaching drives them away. Clubs have coaches for their first teams, but nothing for their lower sides. Another reason cricketers leave our area may be lack of sponsorship. It costs money to run a club. Another reason may also be the lack of marketing by local clubs. When I played in the UK, my club went to all the local high schools to promote the club – it’s a great way of getting new members. These are just some of the challenges that our local clubs face, and if they can be overcome we may yet be able to get our the number of cricketers playing for clubs to where they were.

This was the first two-day match of 2013 for Helderberg and was played at the Helderzicht ground. Helderberg are currently in second place on the league followed by Avendale in third position. Skipper of the home team, Vincent Castle, lost the toss and was sent in to bat by the visiting captain. It was a slow start to the day for Helderberg who were not scoring as freely as they wanted to because of the good bowling by Avendale’s bowlers who were also assisted by a slow pitch. Helderberg batted for 58 overs before they were all out for 164 runs. The best batsmen for Helderberg were Ebrahim Latief (38*), Steven Southey (21), Larry Morkel and Malcolm Stuurman with 20 runs each. Avendale went in to bat just after lunch and the Helderberg bowlers did not make it easy for the Avendale batsmen. Wickets fell at a regular interval and Avendale were eventually all bowled out for 84 runs. The best bowlers for the host club were Adrian Van Reenen 22-3-27 and Vincent Castle 12-3-20 while Malcolm Stuurman and Wilton Hindley took two wickets each. Helderberg had to bat for 40 minutes before the close of play but lost two wickets in that session with the score on 27.
