SOMERSET MALL: SECOND INCIDENT
‘Mall attack’ false NIKITA SYLVESTER
nother alleged attack at Somerset Mall has been foiled by the mall’s state of the art security camera system. This comes after a 16-year-old boy claims to have been attacked at the mall. After a similar case last year, a Somerset West mother contacted DistrictMail after her son claimed he and his friends had been attacked by a group of boys on 23 February. The teen who wishes to remain anonymous explained that they left the mall at around 21:30 that evening. He claims that as they exited Entrance 4 and walked down the ramp, they were approached by a group of young men, who asked for the time. “We said we didn’t have the time. One of the men grabbed my arm and asked for our phones, I pulled my arm away and that was when he smacked me in the face,” said the boy, who was also allegedly threatened with a knife. He said that his friends then came forward to help him as he pulled off his belt and began hitting the attacker with it. “The rest of the attackers came closer and that’s when we ran away. We split up and ran in all directions. I ran home and we all got together at my house later that evening.” He added that one of his friends recognised some of the attackers to be from the Strand area. The boy opted not to report the matter to the police, with the hope of putting the unpleasant encounter behind him. Confident that false claims had been made by the teenager, Somerset Mall management allowed DistrictMail to view the camera footage of this controversial occurrence. Upon viewing the footage it is clear that the group of boys were not approached by strangers. It appears that the group, including girls, were all familiar with one another as they stood outside the mall entrance for nearly 10
minutes talking. A scuffle ensued, but security guards, who were monitoring the situation, intervened. The group then dispersed. Somerset Mall general manager, Mandy Bellamy, confirms the incident and said that the CCTV footage reveals a group of boys having a discussion in the car park, not at the ramp. Despite the boy’s claims, “the footage does not show any ‘attack’ and there is no proof of a knife,” said Bellamy. She confirmed that security guards are always positioned at mall entrances and patrol outside after trading hours. Armed response vehicles patrol the area and the control room monitors the external and internal premises of the mall via CCTV, said Bellamy. Somerset Mall operations manager, Chris le Roux, said the camera systems were upgraded from an analog system to IP system (Internet Protocol). “We have 130 CCTV cameras throughout the mall and the 33 PTZ (movable) cameras are high-definition quality. With the upgrade we not only improved the coverage throughout the mall, but also the quality of footage increased significantly,” said Le Roux. According to Somerset West police spokesperson, constable Suzan Jantjies, if the boy were to report the incident to the police and if it was proven to be incorrect, he could face charges of perjury, even if he is a minor. “He would be brought to the police station and questioned by a probation officer and would be placed in the custody of the parents or legal guardian until a court date has been set,” said Jantjies. In a separate incident in June last year, Somerset West resident, Allan Mayne (47) was arrested after claiming that he was attacked and stabbed at the mall. The security footage revealed that there were no other parties involved and it appears that he had stabbed himself. He was charged with defeating the ends of justice and will make his next court appearance on 29 March.

2 Distrikspos Street People Centre’s lease not to be renewed 28 Februarie, 2013
JAMEY THOMAS The lease of the Helderberg Street People’s Centre in Somerset West will not be renewed. This decision was reached after the City of Cape Town’s Property Management Department advertised a proposal for its renewal and received considerable opposition to the present location of the centre. According to councillor Suzette Little, Mayco member for social and early childhood development, local businesses and business owners have strongly objected to the renewal of the lease. They argued that since the facility is situated in the central business district of Somerset West and in close proximity to them, it has negatively impacted on business. Residents have also on numerous occasions voiced their concerns to DistrictMail regarding the issue at hand. Some of the complaints were that the centre draws people from other areas to the CBD daily, who then hang around and “contribute towards the general untidiness” of the area, and that it should not be allowed to operate in Busy Corner where the police regularly arrest drug dealers. Although the City recognises the good work done by the soup kitchen programme, what worries them is that about 400 homeless peo-
ple are being fed on the streets, said councillor Little “In turn, this results in the failure of re-integration of the homeless into formal social structures, and therefore alternative measures will have be explored to place these people in a developmental programme that will support such re-integration and improving the lives of Women from the United Church often help out in the The Helderberg Street People’s Centre, which is situated those individuals,” soup kitchen. in Victoria Street. said Little. “The socio-economic realities of South Afri- initiative to start a social development hub could be found that is accessible and amenaca requires that social and economic develop- in Somerset West remains a possibility, and ble to both the poor and their volunteers.

Patience needed with N2 roadworks JAMEY THOMAS Motorists travelling along the N2 between Somerset West and Grabouw will have to exercise extreme patience since construction on the road is set to continue until mid June. The delay follows a rock fall which occurred at a lookout point on the road in July last year, causing minor injuries to several people. Two of the four lanes were immediately closed and the two-way traffic was accommodated on the two remaining open lanes so that construction to prevent further rock falls could commence. The tender contract’s conditions, however, stipulated that all four lanes be open by the beginning of the December holidays, bringing construction to a halt and resulting in the full utilisation of the road by motorists during this period. According to Gerhard Fourie, South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) project manager, rock bolting for the most critical section was completed successfully before the December holiday period. Rock bolting is a method of anchoring large rocks into the parent rock, in order to reduce the chance of any further rock falls, he said. “Construction activities and associated lanes restrictions came into effect in mid Jan-
uary, and current works entail the continuation of installing rock bolts where needed; the installation of mesh on steep rock faces; manually barring down loose rocks to create safer slopes; and setting out catch fences that will be installed on the upper slopes of the mountain,” said Fourie. According to Sanral operations manager Randall Cable, bidirectional traffic will be accommodated on the two remaining open lanes through the Easter weekend and concrete barriers will also remain in place for the duration of the construction period to protect the Gun Trete construction workers Rafal Camo (left) and works and the road users. “Higher Eliah Leshabane are hard at work in order to prevent than normal traffic volumes over further rock falls on the N2 between Somerset West Easter are anticipated which may and Grabouw.

Brother-in-law found guilty of Preben Povlsen’s murder The brother-in-law of Gordon’s Bay resident Preben Povlsen, who was murdered in 2008, has been found guilty by the Western Cape High Court. Francis Kimeze, 37, was on Monday found guilty of the murder of the 71-year-old Danish businessman, while Povlsen’s wife, Maria Povlsen, 34, and her sister, Stella Senegendo,
42, were found guilty of being accomplices to the crime. The Povlsens had homes in both Denmark and Gordon’s Bay. Stella lived with her son in a separate flatlet on the couple’s property, and Kimeze did maintenance work there from time to time. Kimeze earlier told the court he had been

smoking tik in Povlsen’s garage when the Dane caught him. An argument ensued, during which Kimeze stabbed Povlsen at least 48 times with a knife. Povlsen’s body was found in Bloubergstrand, six days after his murder. Sentencing proceedings began on Wednesday.
NEWS SUMMARY The burglar who was shot in the leg after being caught red handed by a home owner in Strand on Saturday 16 February, is still in hospital. After the incident, two cases were investigated; a case of robbery against the suspect and a case of attempted murder against the home owner. The latter charge has been dropped. According to Constable Mbulelo Mafuna, spokesperson for the Strand police, the robbery suspect will be charged and will appear in court as soon as he is discharged from hospital. - page 6 Gordon’s Bay resident Corlia Langenhoven is eternally grateful to two municipal workers who returned her handbag and identity document after it was stolen from her car in January. Mark Otto found the peach coloured bag on the N2 opposite Helderberg Toyota and Daniel Warnich took it upon himself to track down the owner and return her belongings. - page 4
4 Distrikspos Samaritane vind gesteelde handsak
28 Februarie, 2013
ILLANA FRANTZ Gordonsbaai-inwoner Corlia Langenhoven sê sy is twee munisipale werkers wat haar gesteelde handsak en ID-boekie aan haar terugbesorg het, ewig dankbaar. Op Woensdag 16 Januarie is daar by Langenhoven se motor ingebreek en haar handsak met alles in, is gesteel. Sy het natuurlik hoop opgegee om enige van die gesteelde items terug te vind, maar slegs ’n dag later is sy verkeerd bewys. Twee barmhartige Samaritane het haar handsak opgetel en moeite gedoen om dit terug by die eienaar te kry. “Ek het ’n e-pos ontvang van die plek waar ek laas my bankkaart gebruik het om te sê dat iemand my handsak opgetel
het en dit na die Somerset-Wes-polisiestasie geneem het. Daar was ’n telefoonnommer by (die handsak) en ek vind toe uit die vriendelike ou aan die ander kant van die foon een van die ouens is wat by die vuilgoed-trokke werk.” DistriksPos het besluit dié man, Daniel Warnich van Macassar, te kontak en uit te vind hoekom hy soveel moeite gedoen het om die handsak terug te besorg. “Vir my gaan dit net om eerlikheid. Ek haat dit as mense skelm is, want ’n mens kom swaar aan jou goed en ander kan dit nie sommer vir hulself toeëien nie,” het hy gesê. Warnich is ’n voorman by Wastemart en vertel hoe hy een oggend ’n kollega, Mark Otto van Sir Lowry’s Pass, op die N2 oorkant Helderberg Toyota gaan optel het. Dis hier waar Otto die perskekleurige

handsak gesien en opgetel het. Hy het Langenhoven se besittings aan Warnich oorhandig wat dit toe op homself geneem het om die eienaar op te spoor. “Ek het dit eers na die adres geneem wat op die ID was, maar hulle bly toe nie meer daar nie. Daar was ’n besigheidskaartjie van ’n plek in Lion’s Square en ek het toe by hulle gaan uitvind. Hulle het gesê sy is ’n kliënt daar en dat hulle vir haar ’n e-pos sal stuur om te sê waar ek haar handsak gaan los,” het Warnich vertel. Langenhoven was baie dankbaar en aangenaam verras vir die moeite waardeur die mans gegaan het. “Ek kon dit eintlik nie glo nie. Hulle het dit gedoen sonder om enigiets te vra en sonder om iets te verwag. Prys die Here vir sulke tye en sulke mense.

Man arrested for perjury A man (31) appeared in the Strand Magistrate’s Court this past Monday after being arrested and charged with perjury. According to a police report, the owner of a white Volkswagen Golf reported his vehicle stolen from his home in George Street, Strand on Saturday 9 February. He woke up on the morning in question at 07:20 and claimed that his car has been stolen some time during the previous night. Const. Mbulelo Mafuna, spokesperson for Strand SAPS, said a docket for the theft of a motor vehicle was subsequently opened. “During the investigation, we found the complainant had actually sold his car on 6 December 2011. We opened a case of perjury against the man. Shaun Visser was arrested on

KIDNAPPED: Buseka Siphunga (20) from Strand was allegedly kidnapped in Somerset West on Friday 22 February. According to a police report, Buseka and her mother were walking towards the taxi rank at 09:00 after a job interview. Buseka fell behind while they were walking, and when her mother turned around, she was nowhere to be seen. A while later Buseka’s sister received a call from her and Buseka said to her sister,"These people are driving away with me in the direction of Cape Town.” The family hasn’t heard from her since. A case of kidnapping is being investigated. Phone Detective WO Hannes Niemand on 021 850 1344.

The old police staion in Wesley Street, Strand.
No crime at police station After Strand residents raised concerns about the old police station in Wesley Street, it appears that crime in the area may not be linked to vagrants alleged to be living in the building. However, Getruida Hendricks, manager at the Oasis Assessment Centre for Homeless People, says they have fieldworkers in the area who can confirm that no one is currently living in the building, and that the “illegal behaviour” can instead be linked to prostitution in the area, which the fieldworkers have witnessed. According to Ward 83 councillor Dave Venter, the old police station was allocated to a beneficiary in a land claim with the Department of Public Works. Thami Mchunu, director of media relations for the Department of Public Works, responded that the department is not familiar with the beneficiaries of any regional land claims, as this information is kept by the Regional Land Claims
Commission under the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. Mchunu says Public Works does not deal directly with the protperty transfer and cannot say when the transfer will be complete. However, the Commission’s Michael Worsnip says the delay lies with Public Works, who rejected a valuation report on the property. “The matter remains something which needs to be dealt with by the National Department of Public Works. It is their land we are talking about here. Transfer of the property to the claimants depends entirely on the National Department of Public Works.” Mchunu says the department has appointed 24-hour security, which was confirmed by Hendricks. However, Venter says this was only done after his enquiries. Strand police spokesperson, Constable Mbulelo Mafuna, says no reports of crime have come from the old police station in the last year. Last week, District Mail published a photo of a neighbouring building instead of the old police station. District Mail apologises for any inconvenience caused.

Inbreker steeds in hospitaal Die inbreker wat verlede naweek deur ’n huiseienaar in sy huis in Southfork, Strand in die been geskiet is, sterk steeds in die hospitaal aan. Die DistriksPos het verlede week berig hoe die huiseienaar in die oggendure van Saterdag 16 Februarie ’n inbreker in ’n huis betrap het. ’n Bloedige geveg het tussen die inbreker, die huiseienaar en sy vrou uitge-
breek en die inbreker is toe in die been geskiet en na ’n hospitaal geneem. Ná die insident is twee sake geopen; ’n saak van huisbraak teen die inbreker en ’n saak van poging tot moord teen die huiseienaar. “Die saak teen my is gelukkig laat vaar. Die polisie het die saak ondersoek en met die staatsaanklaer bespreek en gevind dat ek heeltemal binne my reg opgetree het,” het die
huiseienaar gesê. Konst. Mbulelo Mafuna, woordvoerder van die Strand-polisie, het bevestig dat die inbreker steeds in die hospitaal is. “Hy sal amptelik aangekla word en in die hof verskyn wanneer hy ontslaan word.” Die huiseienaar nooi ander inwoners in die area uit om by die Southfork Buurtwag aan te sluit. Belangstellendes kan die voorsitter Rashaad Haynie by 072 856 4647 bel.
Campaigner passes away “If you want something badly enough, you can make it happen as long as you have the faith to take it on.” These were the words that the late Christine Gordon (49) strongly believed in. After a long struggle with cancer, she passed away on 21 February. Passionate, brave and determined, Christine spent a large part of her life working for worthy causes. She was one of the founding directors of the South African Substance Abuse Professionals Pty Ltd. Alongside her husband, Peter, she also founded Drug Free Africa in 2000, which offered educational and drug-prevention programmes. She dedicated herself to studying substance abuse and addiction sciences and the impact that it has on communities. This led to the development of substance abuse and wellness training and capacity
building materials for the Western Cape departments of Social Development and Community Safety. Christine trained government officials from various departments and she mentored and monitored emerging organisations and youth from a number of communities. “Over a half a million individuals from all racial and socio-economic backgrounds have been impacted by her personal life experiences and story. “Christine always emphasised the importance of building a life that is not committed to self, but rather to the community and beyond,” said Christine’s sister, Rose Mills. Besides devoting her life to these purposeful causes, Christine was also a loving wife and mother. She is survived by her husband Peter, daughter Bronwyn and sons Aaron and Sheldon.

Stop giving to beggars – it is irresponsible I have just supported a criminal/alcoholic/druggy financially today by giving money irresponsibly to a beggar/unofficial car guard. That is exactly what our good samaritans are doing by giving irresponsibly to the above – sponsoring criminals. Stop it and don’t be offended when someone scolds you for doing this. By the way the cripple man by the N2/ Victoria street intersection, is not cripple. I saw him chase after two guys who robbed him recently, like Usain Bolt. I saw Gabriël high on drugs late last week at the same intersection. Thanks to you. Don’t pay illegal car guards and when they threaten you, lay charge for “aggressive begging” with the metro police (municipal bylaw). If you see someone give money to these beggars, make your disapproval loudly known by hooting.
Checkers took steps to sort out truck parking After years of trying to get the local management of Checkers in Gordon Road to stop having their suppliers parking on the pavement and preventing pedestrians safely walking along the pavement, I finally got an undertaking from Checkers National Head Office to sort out the problem after I photographed one of the Shoprite vehicles parked on the pavement and tweeted it. Checkers indicated that they will take all steps necessary to ensure that vehicles don’t park on the pavement. Checkers have also replaced the broken bollards on the pavement, showing a very real commitment to the residents of Somerset West.

Unhappy with treatment at Mediclinic after allergic reaction To whom it may concern, I would like to report on the terrible service received at Mediclinic Vergelegen. On Friday night 1 February 2013, I went into the emergency unit after having an allergic reaction to seafood. I was placed on status orange as it is a deadly reaction but was only the start of it. It was more than 30 minutes before I could get into the emergency unit to receive medical care. By this time I was red all over and itchy, my blood pressure was 150 over 91 and I was throwing up. Only once I almost passed out did they take me into the emergency room to receive treatment. I think that the community should know what the service is like at the hospital before they consider going
there for treatment as they might wait too long and could die. I would expect more from a private hospital. I paid over R800 and first got very sick before they would help. This is absolutely appalling.
Response from Mediclinic Vergelegen: Ms Combrinck has raised her concerns directly with the hospital recently and we can comment that she was seen within the recommended time guidelines as prescribed by the South African Triage Scale. On the day of her visit to our emergency centre, she was triaged upon arrival and assessed by a doctor within 25 to 30 minutes after being triaged yellow. The purpose of the triage system is to determine the severity of the emergency and patients
are treated accordingly, based on the guidelines. A comprehensive discussion with Ms Combrinck took place providing her with feedback and it was recommended that she obtains a medic alert bracelet as well as appropriate personal medication in the event that her reaction reoccurs, to prevent the potential consequence of a severe allergic reaction. On average 1 300 patients make use of our emergency centre at Mediclinic Vergelegen per month. Due to the sheer volumes seen, our patients have to be prioritised so as to treat the most urgent conditions first and all patients as fast as possible without sacrificing quality of care. However, we cannot completely eliminate waiting times in the unpredictable environment of an emergency centre.
Waardasie-skok – werk ons vir die Stad? Met my aftrede 15 jaar gelede het ek besluit om ’n kleiner woning aan te skaf. So het ek ’n huis van 124 m² op ’n erf van 378 m² in die Strand aangekoop. My voordeur kyk uit op ’n groot blok woonstelle geleë aan die oorkant van die straat. My woning is op ’n hoekerf geleë met ’n redelike grasperk aan die voor sowel as sykant. Bedags word ek vermaak deur taxi’s met blêrende musiek wat verby jaag. Om netheid te bevorder word die sypaadjie-gedeelte van die grasperk synde die raad se eiendom, deur my instandgehou. Die watervore van die straat word gereeld deur my gevee en onkruid verwyder want
straatveërs word nie op ’n gereelde basis waargeneem nie. Geen verbetering of aanbou-werk is onlangs aan my woning aangebring nie. Ek het nou egter met skok verneem van ’n 39,4% (R311 000) styging in die hersiene waardasie van my eiendom. Die leuse van die Stad Kaapstad “This city works for you,” is nie van toepassing op my sowel as menigte ander nie. Met al die stygings – huisbelasting, elektrisiteit, water ens. – sowel as ons ongesiene bydrae om ons erwe netjies te hou, is dit nou die geval dat “we are working for the city!”

Please shed some light on the ‘UFO’ At approximately 21:45 last Thursday night (14 February) I witnessed a very large orange ball travelling in the sky from the direction of the Helderberg mountains below the clouds. The speed appeared to be constant. It travelled towards the sea and then proceeded in a very large arc towards Blouberg /Table Bay.
My wife and I watched it until it disappeared. At no time was there any noise or flickering of light. Maybe some of your readers also saw the same thing? Are you able to shed any “light” on the above? Hopefully I will get a reply before they come to take me away. Thank you.
Well done, Carpet World’s A team A huge bouquet to the three men from Carpet World who came on Tuesday 19 February to replace the “ancient” and badly worn carpet in my cottage. Despite having been under the impression that the cottage was unoccupied, the three of them set to work and shifted the furniture (which included the piano, a heavy kist and sideboard) from room to room as they worked. What a pleasure to see how slickly they worked as a team, not to mention their expertise. Thank you George, Rodney and Emile for doing an incredible job so efficiently and with such goodwill. The cottage looks terrific and you really deserved to be christened “The A-Team”! You made a plan regarding all the furniture and it certainly all came together. Thank you!

Thanks to KwikSpar for AWS donations A short, but heartfelt thank you to the manager/owner of the Vergelegen KwikSpar for the many occasions on which you’ve donated all sorts of goods, ranging from meats, to animal products to our Society. Everything gets used and what we cannot use to feed our own shelter animals, gets used when our mobile clinic is out and above, to feed the animals within the poorer communities. The support given by the Vergelegen KwikSpar has been phenomenal. Again, thank you!

Sjef spog met droomstem Mense beskou hulself as gelukkig om een talent in die lewe te hê – daardie een ding waarin hulle uitblink. Garth Delport (28) van Raithby is egter nie een van dié mense nie. Nie net sal Garth jou laat smeul aan fynproewerkos van die beste gehalte nie, maar sy kragtige basbaritonstem sal jou na aan trane kry. Nadat Garth in 2002 aan die Hoërskool Gordon matriek behaal het, het hy by Boland Kollege in Stellenbosch gaan studeer en sy diploma in gasvryheids- en spysenieringsdienste verwerf. Daarna kon gaste by bekende restaurante soos Avontuur op die R44, Vergelegen in Somerset-Wes en Die Volkskombuis in Stel- Garth Delport lenbosch sy skeppings proe. Ten spyte van sy liefde vir die kookkuns, het sy passie vir sing steeds by hom gespook. “Ek het mos maar altyd gesing en almal sê altyd vir jou ‘jy is so goed’, toe waag ek ’n kans en doen aansoek by die Universiteit van Kaapstad se musiekskool. “Dit was moeilik om ’n vaste werk en inkomste prys te gee en weer ’n voltydse student te word, maar my ouers het my bygestaan en ek het die opoffering gemaak. “Ek was net bang ek kyk terug op my lewe wanneer ek 50 is en is dan spyt dat ek dit nie gedoen het nie,” sê hy, terwyl hy terugdink
BIBLIOTEEKWEEK GEVIER: Strand Biblioteek nooi alle liefdadigheids- en niewinsgewende organisasies uit om deel te neem aan ’n uitstalling volgende maand. Die uitstalling vorm deel van Nasionale Biblioteekweek wat van 18 – 23 Maart gevier word. Vanjaar se tema is “@ Jou Biblioteek”. Alle inligting, brosjures en plakkate moet A4- of A3-grootte wees, maar nie groter nie. “Daar gebeur soveel wonderlike dinge in ons gemeenskap. Ons wil graag hê almal in die Helderberg moet kennis dra van dienste wat beskikbaar is, asook waarmee alles hulp aangebied word,” het Elfie du Toit (links op die foto), sekretaresse van die Vriende van die Biblioteek, gesê. By haar staan Erika van Staden, senior bibliotekaresse van die Strand Biblioteek. Belangstellende organisasies of verenigings moet hul inligting by die biblioteek inhandig. Bel die biblioteek by 0 021 850 4188 vir meer inligting.
aan sy dae as 25-jarige student tussen ’n klomp jongmense vars uit die skoolbanke. Sy besluit het egter vrugte afgewerp toe hy in Oktober verlede jaar gekies is om deel te neem aan ’n operagala by vanjaar se Suidoosterfees. Garth is gekies om as een van vyf ander soliste ’n aria van die Italiaanse komponis Guiseppe Verdi te sing by die vertoning wat op 31 Januarie in die stadsaal in Kaapstad gehou is. Garth onthou dat senuwees en die opwinding van die konsert hom drie aande voor die konsert uit die slaap gehou het. “Elkeen van ons moes ’n kwartet en ’n soloitem lewer. Dit was my eerste keer op so ’n groot verhoog en definitief een van my drome wat waar geword het.” Hul sangitem is ook regstreeks op Radio Sonder Grense uitgesaai en die luisteraars het dit so baie geniet, dat ’n heruitsending daarvan verlede Donderdag 21 Februarie weer uitgesaai is. “Dit was ’n great ervaring en mos maar iets wat enige sanger wil hê: ondervinding. My doel vir vanjaar is om aan kompetisies deel te neem om nog meer ondervinding te kry en ook vir publisiteit.” Hoewel hy nou vir eers professionele kosmaak opsy geskuif het, kook hy steeds in sy vrye tyd. Garth sê hy doen gereeld die spyseniering vir troues en ander geleenthede. Hy sien egter nie kans om albei by een geleentheid te doen nie, maar by die huis doen hy dit sommer toe-oë terwyl hy bak en brou.

Intern shines in City programme Mark de Wet, from Somerset West received an aware for Best Oral Presentation in a group from the City of Cape Town’s 2012 Environmental Internship Programme. An awards ceremony was held on Friday 22 February at the Kristo Pienaar Education Centre in the Tygerberg Nature Reserve where a total of seven awards were presented. According to a statement issued by the city, running for eight years the programme has proven its success and effectiveness in producing exceptional young professionals. Each intern is placed with a specific employee who manages and mentors them for 12 months. Although highly qualified in a specific environmental field, the intern is usually fresh out of university and often lacks practical work place skills and experience. “These interns are some of the most driven and professional people I have met. Their commitment to public service, alongside their passion for environmental conservation and sustainability, is coupled with a deep knowledge and ever-growing expertise that is of enormous benefit to the city and its residents,” said Garreth Bloor, the city’s MayCo member for economic, environmental and spatial planning.

Soulful sax at the Nature Reserve Hailed as the prince of the saxophone, Andrew Young and his band of South African musicians will perform a combination of smooth jazz, funk and gospel at the Helderberg Nature Reserve on Saturday 9 March. Special guests in the show include EMI recording artist Selim Kagee and Pipe Major Tony Reis of the Cape Town Caledonian Pipe Band. Andrew is supported by band members Paul Williams on piano and keyboard, Robbie DuPont on bass and Basil DuPont on drums. Born in Liverpool, England, and now residing in Vienna, Austria, Young has performed across the globe to audiences as far afield as Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, China, Turkey and Tunisia. A six-year stint in South Africa led to the formation of the five piece Jazz/Funk/Fusion band, Let It Flow. Young’s 1994 debut
album Soul People topped the South African charts twice and was nominated five times for the South African Music Awards. He released seven more albums, including A Christmas Album in 1999, Live in Vienna in 2007 and In A Quiet Moment in 2009. His influence on the South African music scene has been impressive. Young played with the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra for six years and has also put his classical music training to good use with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra, as well as others. The show starts at 17:00 with gates opening at 15:00. Bring a picnic and some chairs or blankets and enjoy a great show. Tickets are available from Computicket at R120 per person. All proceeds will go towards environmental projects in the reserve. For more information, phone 021 852 4060 or visit www.helderbergnaturereserve.co.za.

Uittredingsannuïteite, duur of goedkoop? Die antwoord is ja en nee. Tussen 2000 en 2004 was die enigste metode om in ’n uittredingsannuïteit te belê, deur ’n versekeringsmaatskappy. Die grootste probleem met hierdie ou generasie annuïteite was die koste, wat geweldig hoog was. In meeste gevalle was dit so hoog as 5 – 6% per jaar. Die grootste bydraende faktor tot hierdie hoë koste is die aanvanklike kommissie, so hoog as 75% van jaarlikse premie, wat aan die makelaar betaal word. Dit beteken dat jou belegging op die duur eers met 5% moet groei voordat dit gelykbreek. Nou kan jy vir jouself dink waarom baie afgetrede mense sê dat toe hy sy annuïteit

Business insights and networking A network breakfast for the Drakenstein, Helderberg and Stellenbosch branches of the Chamber of Business and Industry was held on 13 February at Erinvale in Somerset West. Newly elected president of the Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Fred Jacobs, was guest speaker at the event. Currently the non-executive chairman of Maersk SA and director of the A P Moller-Maersk shipping group, Jacobs spoke on the importance looking beyond job creation to maintaining jobs. He also pledged to help small businesses navigate the red tape they often encounter.
The event allowed business owners to network, with (from left) John Middleton of Handipak, Denis Batchelor of C-Track SA and Anton Breytonbach of Glenkey Construstion taking advantage of the opportunity.

Daar is ’n algemene mening onder beleggers dat ’n uittredingsannuïteit een van die swakste beleggings is wat gemaak kan word.

maar jou gemiddelde koers sal in daardie stadium baie minder wees as wat jy nou bespaar. ’n Ander voordeel is dat jou uittredingsannuïteit vrygestel is van enige eise deur skuldeisers. As jy dus finansieel in die moeilikheid raak, of bankrot speel, kan niemand ooit op hierdie geld aanspraak maak nie. Nog ’n voordeel is dat dit jouself, teen jouself beskerm. Party beleggers kan soms nie die versoeking weerstaan om van hul swaar verdiende spaargeld te onttrek, en op onbenullighede te bestee nie. Met ’n uittredingsannuïteit kry jy eers op ouderdom 55 toegang tot die geld. Moenie dink omdat jy ’n nuwe annuïteit uitgeneem het, jy wel in ’n nuwe generasie annuïteit belê nie. Ou-generasie annuïteit is steeds beskikbaar, pasop. Die minimum maandelikse premie by ’n beleggingshuis is R500. Vergewis jouself hierdie week met die koste wat jy betaal. PSG Konsult 0 021 851 3353.

Energetic start to networking The Cape Business Connect (CBC) networking breakfast got off to an energetic start this year. At their first meeting last week (13 February), 42 business people from various sectors attended and enjoyed a morning of networking and building business contacts. “The charismatic guest speaker Sean Willard, author, coach, trainer and also known as “the Life Attack Guy” inspired us with his humour and powerful message to each and everyone. He said ‘pursue your dreams, live your purpose – be sure that you do not die with your music still in you’,” said co-founder and owner of CBC in the Helderberg, Sylvia Malinowski. This networking forum (previously known as, Business Network) has been active in the Helderberg for more than 12 years and meets once a month, every third Wednesday in the month, now at the NH Lord Charles Hotel from 08:00 – 09:30. All business people are welcome to join as visitors – for membership details please enquire on the website (www.capebusinessconnect.co.za) or call Sylvia on 082 4549 475. The next meeting will take place on Wednesday 20 March.
Your personal balance sheet We worry about the noise in the market place so much we often neglect to focus on the basics of financial planning.
Some of the networkers – all of them representing businesses operating in the Helderberg (from left) are Stephen Leppan (Trulogic), James van der Hover (Social Media Campaign) Carola Baran (Development Associates ApS), Dr Aneta Shaw (Clinical Psychologist), Carla Nel (@Last Embroidery & Promotions), Madré Fraenkel (Livewell Suites) and Bobby Bennett (Helderberg AudioVideo).

BREAKFAST MEETING: Karl Smith, “the networking guy” will be speaking at the upcoming Network Breakfast at Avontuur Estate Restaurant on Wednesday 13 March.

The event will start at 08:30 at a cost of R120. To book your spot or for further information contact Zunia Boucher-Myers on 021 855 4296.
Get tax wise in your business at breakfast Book your seat to hear South African tax professional, professor Daniel Erasmus on doing business in South Africa under the Tax Administration Act. Taking place on Friday 8 March, First Accountants will be hosting the business breakfast at Sage and Thyme, in Somerset West. Erasmus will be informing guests of what the constitutional rights of the taxpayers are and how they can manage these tax risks within their companies. An open question and answer session will follow after the presentation. The event will take place from 08:00 – 09:30 at a cost of R55 which includes breakfast. Payment can be made at the venue on the day. To attend please email your confirmation along with the names of the person/s that you would like to accompany you to email@example.com. If you confirm please make sure you attend as we will not be able to accommodate everyone.
This week we will watch our minister of finance, Pravin Gordhan, as he tries to upstage David Copperfield by magically balancing the needs of 52 million people using the taxes of 3,5 million taxpayers. Should be interesting, but enough of the noise. What is important is that Mr Gordhan has prepared a budget in writing of his planned income and expenses for the year. How many readers can say the same? Those in business understand that you cannot run a business without proper financials, yet when it comes to our personal finances very few of us can produce financial statements. Start with a very basic balance sheet listing your assets and liabilities. A balance sheet is a snap shot of your finances as at a specific date i.e. for the year ending 28 February 2013. This could be the first eye opener for you. Ideally your assets should exceed your liabilities with the difference reflecting as your net equity. If your liabilities exceed your assets then you are techni-
cally insolvent. Your focus should be on reducing debt and growing equity as you approach retirement. This is achieved through your income statement. An income statement is just a fancy name for a budget of all your expenses and income. The best way to draft an income statement or budget is to use your bank statement. Unlike Mr Gordhan who has access to a printing press your income should exceed expenses, with surplus income added to the balance sheet by either reducing debt or accruing as savings. Listing your expenses against your income will provide you with a very clear picture of whether you are financially going forward, backward or simply treading water. The real value of an income statement will come from analysing your expenses and eliminating unnecessary expenses, which creep into the budget without you even noticing. Make an annual habit of updating your personal financials each year when you watch our minister of finance perform his balancing act.

18 Distrikspos By Benbel kom die kliënt eerste
28 Februarie, 2013
LIZE MULDER Wanneer Daniel Benade met passie oor sy onderneming gesels, kan jy hoor hy beskou dit beslis nie as wérk nie. Sy “lawwe” advertensies bevestig dat humorsin en menslikheid ’n groot rol speel in die sukses van die Benbel-groep se winkels in die Helderberg-omgewing. Daniel en sy vrou, Gerda, het twee seuns, Merwe (27) en Stefan (21). “Merwe is ook by die onderneming betrokke. Hy is in Desember met Talita, ’n onderwyseres, getroud. Stefan studeer drama op Stellenbosch,” vertel Daniel van sy gesin. “Ons is ’n hegte gesin en was nog altyd baie lief vir reis – in Amerika, Europa en ook in ons eie land. Noudat die seuns egter elk hul eie rigting inslaan, reis ons twee oues maar op ons eie. “Ons was vir die Desembervakansie in Jongensfontein, wat sedert 1987 jaarliks ons vakansieplek is. Dis baie mooi en rustig daar, en tog is daar hope te doen, soos branderry, duik, gholf of tennis speel, vlieërvlieg, kaart speel, lees en nog soveel meer van wat ’n mens in
Desember met vakansie wil doen.” In sy gesprek oor sy onderneming blyk dit dat sy voete eintlik heel onverwags op hierdie weg beland het. “In 1989 was ek op die uitkyk om ’n nuwe rigting in my lewe in te slaan, nadat ek eers rekenmeester was en ook vir vyf jaar by die vervaardiging en verkoop van branderplanke betrokke was.” (Merwe was ’n kranige branderplankryer.) “Drie dinge het vir my uitgestaan. Nommer een: Mense móét eet, en daar sal dus altyd plek vir koswinkels wees. Maar jy moet groot genoeg wees om die regte pryse te kan kry. Nommer twee: Dan volg die klerebedryf, want mense móét klere dra. Maar dié bedryf is té modegebonde en dit is nou nie my ding nie. Nommer drie: Mense het huise nodig en hulle moet hul huise in stand hou. “In daardie stadium was daar nie groot rolspelers in die huisverbeteringsmark in die Helderberg-gebied wat Strand, Somerset-Wes en Gordonsbaai insluit nie. Ek het dus ‘ingekoop’ in ’n klein hardewarewinkeltjie in die Strand en toe daarvandaan verder uitgebrei.” Vandag bestaan die groep uit Benbel Garden, Benbel Strand en dan Benbel
Home & Garden, wat elkeen onafhanklik handel dryf. “Ek dink die vernaamste rede hoekom mense deur ons deure stap, is omdat ons personeel so vriendelik en hulpvaardig is en oor die regte kennis beskik. ’n Mens kan egter nooit op jou louere rus nie. Daarom strewe ons deurentyd daarna om vernuwend te bly dink en met nuwe idees vorendag te kom. “Ek glo sterk aan gemeenskapsbetrokkenheid. Benbel borg reeds 15 jaar lank interskole-byeenkomste in die Helderberg. In een stadium was agt laerskole betrokke. “Ek glo ’n mens moet terugploeg in die gemeenskap waaruit jy jou bestaan maak,” vertel hierdie man met sy opregte belangstelling in sy onderneming én sy kliënte se behoeftes. “Benbel is ’n volledige ‘eenstop-huissorg- winkel’ waar jy van die posbus en nommers vir jou huis en plaveisel tot by jou voordeur, jou voordeurklokkie, verf vir binne en buite, en alle gereedskap wat jy in en om jou huis mag nodig hê, kan kry. Daar is skarniere, slotte, gloeilampe en natuurlik ook baie plante en potte en alles wat daarmee saamgaan, soos kunsmis, gifstowwe en besproeiingstoerusting,” vertel Daniel met oë wat blink.

Good loans vs bad loans – choose one that’s right for you Even people who are very careful with money may need to borrow from time to time. However, every loan you take out comes with a financial responsibility so you need to make sure you are borrowing for the right reason and understand the basics. There are different types of loans but they all have one thing in com-
mon, which is that they need to be paid back over a certain amount of time with some type of interest. “When considering a loan rather approach financial institutions which are regulated,” says Eunice Sibiya, Head of Consumer Education at FNB. Read the entire document before signing and make sure you un-
derstand it. This will reduce the chances of unwanted surprises later. “Most importantly, borrow only what you need,” says Sibiya. “You shouldn’t be spending too much of your monthly salary on covering monthly loan repayments. Remember you must still pay for your living expenses. Be financially smart.”

Gordon’s Bay art group exhibit their works of art at Villa Via The Gordon’s Bay Art Group (GBAG) held a very successful art exhibition at the Villa Via Hotel last weekend. They will be having an exhibition on the last weekend of every month, with the next one during the weekend of 22 – 24 March. “The hotel provides a magnificent venue, thus ensuring the perfect space for exceptionally talented members to showcase their work.

Pamper yourself with a spa treatment.

Beauty the reason for each season Whether itâ€™s summer or winter, taking care of your body and appearance is essential. Here are a few steps to follow which will ensure you are ready for any season. Body exfoliation: A qualified therapist will be able to recommend the best way for you to slough away that winter layer of keratinised skin cells. This could be through body brushing, or dry or wet exfoliation. Having this treatment carried out professionally will make sure that all those difficult-to-reach areas are not left out and that professional products are used to achieve the best results. Self-tanning: Spending hours in the sun or on a sun bed are not only dangerous but also unpopular due to skin cancers being a potential side-effect. To achieve a sunkissed natural skin glow, book yourself into a professional salon to have a qualified therapist apply this product evenly. Today the most popular self-tanning product is applied via spray-tanning. The therapist uses a hand-held sprayer to apply a fine mist of tanner evenly over the entire body.
Hair removal: With so many different ways to remove hair, it can become very confusing. There are shaving, waxing, tweezing, creams, threading and laser. How do you decide what to choose? Cost and effectiveness should be your deciding factors. Shaving is inexpensive but doesnâ€™t last long. Laser is effective but expensive to many. What is in the middle? Waxing is affordable and effective. Book yourself into a salon for your waxing treatment. A qualified therapist will wax you quickly and safely in a hygienic environment. Nails: Dare to wear beautiful sandals without having had a professional pedicure? Summer hands and feet are essential with the pretty eye-catching colours on the market. There is no excuse for unpainted nails. Make an appointment at a salon for a professional manicure and pedicure. A qualified therapist will remove the hard skin, file and buff your nails, push back your cuticles, and should always perform a relaxing foot massage to complete your beauty treatment. - The Beauty Therapy Institute

Seëls vir blommeskou vorder fluks Die Helderberg-blommeklub is fluks besig met verskeie fondsinsamelingsprojekte om fondse vir vanjaar se blommeskou in te samel. Die skou is ’n jaarlikse hoogtepunt op die blommeklub se kalender en dit vind van 23 – 27 Julie plaas. Een van hul projekte is die versameling van die seëls wat om broodsakkies kom. Die seëls sal dan gebruik word om ’n ander projek te ondersteun, waar seëls in ruil vir ’n rolstoel gekry kan word. Jannie du Toit, voorsitter van die Helderberg-blommeklub, verduidelik die projek word deur al die blommeklubs in die WesKaap ondersteun. “Ons het reeds die projek op ons Facebookblad adverteer en een van die blad se lede het moeite gedoen om ’n klomp van die seëls by my te kry. Magaret Salmon (foto) het vanaf Melton Rose per trein gery om die seëls vir die goeie doel te bring,” het Du Toit gesê.

Motorfietsryer naby Macassar-oprit raakgery ’n Motorfietsryer moes per helikopter na ’n hospitaal geneem word ná ’n ongeluk op die N2 Maandagoggend.
HITTING THE CURB: Residents of Helena Heights, Somerset West came across this sight when they awoke on Sunday morning. According to Elodie Bird, one of the residents, the incident happened at about 02:50 that morning. “As far as we know there was only the driver in the car,” she said. Const. Suzan Jantjies, spokesperson for the Somerset West SAPS, said the driver of the vehicle drove up Helderberg College Road, hit the curb and then lost control of the vehicle. “There were no other vehicles involved and the driver reported the matter to the police. He only sustained minor injuries and an accident report was opened,” she said.
ECHO proud of its graduates Last year, the Erinvale Care & Help Organisation (ECHO) had three students graduating, bringing the total number of ECHO graduates to 28. Rozan Coetzee graduated as a medical doctor, which now makes two doctors on their graduate list. Carolyn de Reuck graduated as an occupational therapist, and was top of her class for four years. Lauren Jansen graduated as a social worker and is currently doing her master’s degree in social work. The annual ECHO Golf Day, which takes
place on Friday 8 March, is the biggest fundraiser of the year. According to ECHO chairperson Des McLeod, 40% of the running costs of ECHO need to be raised at this event. “Without your support and donations all of this wouldn’t be possible. Be part of building a successful future for our community by making a donation to one of our fund-raisers such as this one,” she said. For more information, phone Des on 076 314 6160 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Die ongeluk tussen ’n wit Ford Fiesta en die motorfiets het omstreeks 07:05 in die rigting van Kaapstad, voor die Macassar-oprit, plaasgevind. Volgens konst. Chrisy Young, woordvoerder van die Macassar-polisie, het die bestuurder van die voertuig vermoedelik beheer oor die voertuig verloor. “Volgens ’n ooggetuie wat agter die motor gery het, het die vroulike bestuurder in die regterkant se baan gery, beheer oor die voertuig verloor en na die linkerkant se baan oorbeweeg en die motorfiets getref.” Die motorfietsryer is per helikopter na die
Vincent Palotti-hospitaal in Pinelands geneem. Die ander bestuurder het ligte beserings opgedoen en is in die Mediclinic Vergelegen behandel. Voertuie op die besige N2 het meters ver gestaan terwyl beamptes en mediese personeel na die ongelukstoneel omgesien het. ) In ’n ander ongeluk tussen ’n rooi Hyundai en ’n silwer Toyota Corolla, is ’n bestuurder in hegtenis geneem. Die ongeluk het die afgelope Saterdag omstreeks 18:20 in Gordonsbaaiweg plaasgevind. Die man (36), wat in hegtenis geneem is , het vermoedelik onder die invloed van alkohol bestuur. ’n Saak van roekelose en nalatige bestuur word ondersoek. Mense met inligting kan adj.off.

Drug lab for mandrax found in Strand Two men were arrested after a drug lab operating in George Street, Strand was uncovered on Thursday 21 February. This follows after police members from the DPCI (HAWKS) and Crime Intelligence responded to information of a vehicle with suspicious male occupants in the area. According to Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut, provincial police spokesperson, a green Chevrolet LDV was pulled over in Beach Road. “A male passenger was recognized as a known drug manufacturer who was arrested by the police in Nyanga on a charge of manufacturing drugs, namely Mandrax, last year,” said Traut. Ensuing investigations led the police to a flat in George Street where they conducted a search of the premises after the doors were
unlocked with a set of keys that was found in the one of the men’s possession. Inside a bedroom of the flat, they found and seized numerous containers with substantial amounts of methaqualine and mandrax powders. The powders, which is estimated to amount to a substantial amount of money, will be examined by the forensic science laboratory. A mandrax press (used to manufacture the tablets) was also seized from the flat. The two men from Nyanga, respectively aged 37 and 57, were arrested for manufacturing drugs and made their first court appearance in the Strand Magistrates Court on Monday 25 February. They made their second appearance on Wednesday 28 February for bail application.

The following technical amendments to the Cape Town Spatial Development Framework are proposed: • • • • •
Did you know we’re on Facebook? www.facebook.com/districtmail
Don’t forget our website:
The Industrial designations are to correlate with the approved Cape Town Zoning Scheme zoning categories. A definition of peripheral residential is to be introduced. Coastal/urban edge misalignments in the Fish Hoek and Glencairn areas are to resolved. The bullet point referencing system, in Table 5.6: Criteria and guidelines for the review of the development edges (page 58), is to be replaced with a numbering system. A new guideline is to be introduced into Policy 23 (referring to urban edges) indicating that any application for urban development outside the urban edge should preferably be submitted simultaneously with its related or constituent rezonings so that the assessment of the CTSDF amendment can be undertaken holistically and with adequate reference to the intentions of the application, and the availability of infrastructure and services.

Somerset West’s Weiss shines at SA Champs Bradley Weiss of Somerset West finished fifth in a star-studded field in the individual men’s race of the Totalsports Xterra South African Championship in Grabouw on Sunday 24 February in a time of 02:40:13.

Olympian Richard Murray and reigning Xterra SA champion Carla van Huyssteen finished first in the men’s and women’s competition. They completed the 1.5 km swim, 27 km mountain bike and 11 km trail in combined times of 02:23:2 and 02:51:01 seconds respectively. Murray said this was his first South African title and his best performance by far in SA. “I swam with Tim Don, exiting the water seconds behind him and 25 seconds ahead of Conrad Stoltz. “I was uncertain going into the bike and really expected Conrad to catch me sooner. It was only on the 10 km mark that he caught me and then proceeded to pull away. “I was about 30 or 40 seconds behind him coming into transition and managed to pull away from him about half way through the run. From there on I just kept it together till the end. “It was a big day for me. I’ve wanted this win for the last three to four years.” An event official reported that Stoltz deviat-
ed from the run route and was disqualified. Dan Hugo therefore took second place on the day, with Nico Pfitzenmaier finishing third. For Van Huyssteen the successful title defence was a dream come true. “I had to work hard the entire race. The swim was a bit chaotic in the beginning with me choosing the wrong line. I still had a good swim though, entering transition first. “I knew I had to work hard as Shonny Vanlandingham is an amazing mountainbiker. I managed to find good rhythm on the bike. Going into the run I knew I had to give my all.” Susan Sloan came in second, while Shonny Vanlandingham (Durango, Colorado) finishing third. The Totalsports Xterra Grabouw was once again split over two days with the Totalsports Xterra Lite taking place on Saturday 23 February followed by the Full on Sunday. Matthew Lombardi (Somerset West) finished second in the individual men’s race of the Xterra Lite in an impressive time of 01:10:41. The Lite race comprises of a 400 m swim, 12 km mountainbike ride and 5 km trail run.

Large maasbankers caught in Betty’s Bay from the shore on Saturday During the past weekend there were a number of venues where kob and a few geelbek were caught. The regular anglers that fished the Harmony Park popular spots like Ouman’s gat, Mosselbank and Die Toring had a few kob, the best being a 5,5kg fish taken at Die Toring. One or two dassie and a few smaller white steenbras were also bagged using prawn bait. One very large leerie was lost by an angler fishing from Blake’s beach on Saturday. There were however no elf caught or even reported. On Saturday one of the regular trekking teams trekked a massive shoal of large elf and a number of kob off Strandfontein beach. Two one-ton bakkie loads of these fish were photographed. Local small boats and kayaks al-
so had their quotas of small kob and Morocco geelbek. Weekenders and professionals that fished for yellowtail around Cape Point only managed to boat a few yellowtail because they were constantly harassed by thousands of China snoek that were present over a wide area off the Point. One or two boats that ventured to eight miles off the Point caught a few long-fin tuna in the 4 to 5 kg class and also a few yellowfin in the 15 kg class. There were also reports of katonkel and one marlin sighted on Saturday. In Hangklip bay there were several good-size geelbek boated. The largest were between 11 and 12 kg. A number of medium-sized Morocco geelbek were also caught. One boat that targeted Hottentot fish on
the outside of Hangklip also had a full quota. On Saturday there was a huge flock of birds working just off the Betty’s Bay shoreline. This is usually a good sign for geelbek and kob. On Saturday and Sunday shore anglers fishing at the harbour at Stoney Point reported excellent catches of large maasbanker which are great for eating and for bait. These maasbanker could be what the birds were after. Well-known Gordon’s Bay skipper Allan du Plessis reported that last Thursday Garth Beaumont caught and released a striped marlin of around 100 kg from the Struisbaai deeper banks. There were also still good catches of yellowtail at the 12 mile bank. During the weekend boats from Struisbaai had good catches of yellowtail from the Alphard bank, 40 miles off Struisbaai. For more information about fishing trips at Struisbaai and locally, contact Allan on
021 853 3532. I recently heard the news of a total ban on all billfish buying and selling in the USA. This ban includes marlin and all other billfish. Approximately 80% of billfish traded in the USA in the past was from South Africa. Most of the fish were caught by South African skippers fishing locally or in Angola and Mozambique. In Japan a single blue-fin tunny of 489 lb was recently sold for the astronomical price of $1,76million at the 2013 Juma sale in Tokyo – this works out to be roughly ($3 500 per pound). Local authorities would like the South African public to realise that this once off price is not representative of the normal price of blue fin tunny of 489 lb.

Beaumont boys were placed in the second group of five teams, where they each played four matches. After that there were play-offs for placings. All the girls played in one round.

34 Distrikspos Pv’s star runner wins Let’s Play award
28 Februarie, 2013
JAMEY THOMAS Smashing three long-standing records during the recent annual interschools athletics meeting has earned ace middle distance runner Michael Pienaar, February’s DistrictMail Let’s Play Sports Star of the month award. The Grade 12 pupil at Parel Vallei High School (PV) was especially commended by Arno Minnie for breaking the record he set while he was a pupil at Strand High 32 years ago. Minnie is at present a teacher at Beaumont Primary School. During the 2013 interschool athletics meeting between Strand, Hottentots-Holland and Parel Vallei, Michael broke the 3 000 m record, which was set at 09:15:07 by Ettienne Marais in 1987, with a time of 08:37; the 1 500 m record of 04:16:09 also by Ettienne Marais in 1987, with a time of 03:58 and the 800 m record of 01:59 set by Arno Minnie in 1980, with a time of 01:53. According to the 18-year-old, who joined PV at the beginning of 2012 when he moved here with his family from Johannesburg, he has had a passion for the sport since he could remember. “It’s what gets me up in the morning, it’s the reason I set goals to work towards and it’s what drives me,” explained the talented athlete. It’s this drive that earned him the South African cross country u.17 title in Sep-
tember 2011, and resulted in him winning the BSG (Business Systems Group) triathlon series title in 2011 and 2012. He also competed in the duathlon world championships in Gijoen, Spain in 2011 where he was ranked seventh. With Parel Vallei now granting him the opportunity to reach his full potential, he also shattered a number of records during the interschool athletics meeting last year. He broke the u.17 boys: 3000 m record (09:20) with a time of 08:44:02; the 1 500 m (04:18:07) with a time of 04:03:50 and the 800 m record which was 02:03:20 with a new record time of 01:56:07. The list of achievements this dedicated athlete has claimed, include records he broke for these three middle distance events (in the respective age categories) during PV’s interhouse athletics meetings in 2012 and earlier this year. According to Michael his dream is to one day compete in the Samsung Diamond League Circuit. “I want to take my athletics career to the highest level and compete nationally and internationally.” However according to Eunice Kets, the school’s sports coordinator, she has never met a more humble and disciplined athlete, and she expects him to achieve great things in life. “I expect to see him at the Olympic Games in three years time,” said Kets.
Helderberg pak Ceres op Kraaifontein Hierdie Saterdag speel Helderberg op Kraaifontein se rugbydag en wel teen Ceres, wat verlede jaar tweede in die Boland se top-liga was. Twee jaar gelede het die twee spanne ook kragte gemeet op Kraaifontein en toe was Helderberg met 18-11 baas, na ’n 11-5 voorsprong met rustyd. Soos in 2011 sal Helderberg veral moet ligloop vir Ceres se swaar, maar beweeglike agttal. Die program wat Helderberg op Kraaifontein betref is: 10:45: Helderberg o.20A vs Scottsdene, 11:55 Helderberg III vs Bellville, 11:55 (B-veld) Helderberg IV vs Milnerton II, 15:30 Helderberg II vs Ceres en 17:45 Helderberg I vs Ceres (hoofwedstryd).
Pirates dealt a huge blow by Lansdowne
Michael Pienaar in action on the track.
Helderberg Pirates first team suffered a huge blow to their title hopes for the season when they lost 3-2 to Lansdowne on Saturday. This match, which was only their fourth loss of the season, saw Pirates fail to capitalise early on in the game and they were made to pay the price. In this uncharacteristically low scoring game Pirates were unable to come from behind to beat their spirited opposition and take one step closer to winning their promotion league. This was especially disappointing after last weekend’s inspired performance. The second team lost their match 15-2 to a young Western Cape school’s team. The juniors did however restore some pride when they beat a strong and spirited Silvertree 20-11.

Helderberg Cricket Club are flying high Helderberg Cricket Club are flying high at the moment and currently top the Western Province Cricket Association’s (WPCA)1 C two -day league and are on course for promotion to the 1 B league. This is a truly outstanding achievement, as the club were only promoted to this league last season. If Helderberg do go on to win the league this season it will be their third league win in a row. It is extremely tough to win a league, especially when it’s your first season in that specific league, but to do so for three seasons in succession is a fantastic achievement. It wasn’t that long ago (2007/2008 season) when Helderberg, Somerset West and Hottentots Holland clubs all finished in the top five places of the WPCA 1C league. After that things

CRICKET: PAUL ROOS INVINCIBLE
College T20 is a smash hit P
aul Roos’ first cricket team were in a destructive mood on Sunday 23 February as they smashed their way to victory at the seventh annual T20 cricket festival held at Somerset College. The festival was once again a huge success and produced some superb and exhilarating cricket from the first teams of Wynberg Boys’ High, Paul Roos Gymnasium, Paarl Gymnasium and Somerset College who slogged it out for top honours. The day was opened by Omar Henry, CEO of Boland Cricket, as he addressed the players and brought some key elements of the T20 version of the game to them. He enjoyed the hospitality on offer during the course of the morning and kept a keen eye on the progress made on the cricket fields. In the first round, both Wynberg and Paul Roos made light work of Somerset College and Paarl Gym respectively. After lunch College and Paarl Gym played each other in the most exciting game of the day. College ended up chasing 175 runs set by Gymnasium. This finally came down to 21 runs needed off the final over, then four runs required off the last ball for victory. However, it was not to be and Somerset College lost by two runs. Following a morning total of 222 runs against Paarl Gymnasium, Paul Roos continued their destructive form in the afternoon as they batted first against Wynberg and amassed 173/5. Wynberg fell 66 runs shy of the total and Paul Roos came away with the title for 2013! Paul Roos’ match winner Sean de Necker was named player of the day for his two man-of-the-match awards and for winning the “most runs” and “most 6s” awards. He scored a century against Paarl Gym and 88 against Wynberg. Kyle Verreynne (Wynberg) and Curtley Louw (Paarl Gym) collected the other two man-of-the-match awards. The “most wickets” went to Schoeman Botha (5) from Paul Roos while Nicolas Scott of Wynberg picked up the “commentators award” for the most spectacular catch of the day.
