WCC to disband...

On 1 April Anina Lee, communications manager at Whale Coast Conservation, made this startling announcement in an email: “It is with regret that I have to tell you that, due to lack of interest in and support for the work of Whale Coast Conservation, it has been decided to wind up the WCC’s operations and disband the organisation. “A general meeting will be held on 22 April to ratify the management board’s decision in this regard.” The announcement from “Sadly Yours, Anina” resulted in horror and disbelief from the community. A call to “Sadly Yours” to confirm the decision, was met with laughter. Hermanus Times, like many others, had been the “victims” of a naughty April Fool’s prank.

HAWSTON ONLUSTE (2012): OPGESKORTE VONNISSE

Dertien skuldig bevind

JANINE VAN DER RIET

Dertien mense is verlede week skuldig bevind op aanklagte van openbare geweld nadat die SAPD K9 honde-eenheid in November 2012 aan die brand gesteek is deur lede van die Hawston-gemeenskap tydens ’n “mini-oorlog” tussen hulle en die polisie. Die dertien beskuldigdes wat in die Strand Streekshof skuldig bevind is, is Mellsure Jacobs, Devon Poole, Morne Benjamin Essau, Russel Engelbrecht, Henzil Gillion, Daniel Charles Petersen, Paulien Sass, Juliana Arendse, Dorren Wyngaardt, Leeroy Figaji, Marco Andreas, Llewellyn Hartnick en Andries Gouws. Hulle is tot 18 maande tronkstraf gevonnis, opgeskort vir vyf jaar op voorwaarde dat hulle hulself nie weer skuldig maak aan openbare ge-

weld in dié tydperk nie. Hulle is ook ongeskik verklaar om vuurwapens te besit. Hawston het daardie Saterdag in November 2012 oorlog teen die polisie verklaar ná lede van die spesiale SAPD-taakmag toegeslaan het op vermeende perlemoensmokkelaars in dié gebied. Dit was slegs ure na Steven “Sai” Figaji (19), begrawe is nadat hy verdrink het. Figaji was na bewering besig om onwettig perlemoen te duik in Vermont toe die taakmag op hom afgekom het. Vriende wat saam met hom in die water was, sowel as sy familie, glo die taakmag het ’n rol in sy dood gespeel. Die jaagtog tussen die taakmag en die beweerde perlemoensmokkelaars het die gemeenskap woedend gemaak en hulle het soos een man op die R43 toegesak, bande begin brand en die pad vir verkeer versper.

Lede van die taakmag, Hermanus SAPD, Overstrand se wetstoepassers en verkeersafdeling was vinnig op die toneel en die pad tussen Vermont en Fisherhaven is vir verkeer gesluit. Die handjievol beamptes teenoor die honderde inwoners, kinders inkluis, wat op hulle toegesak het, was in gevaar toe van die inwoners die beamptes deur die bosse bekruip en omsingel het. Die beamptes is sonder waarskuwing onder die klippe gesteek, gevolg deur geweerskote. Patrick Afrika van die Overstrand Verkeersdepartement se privaat voertuig is omgegooi en met ’n petrolbom aan die brand gesteek. ’n Gedeelte van die berg langs die pad is ook aan die brand gesteek. Hierna het betogers die Overberg K9-honde-eenheid aan die brand gesteek en verskeie SAPD-voertuie met petrolbomme bestook. ’n Polisiebeampte is in die oor-en-

Gewapende roof in Botrivier skok ‘Watertoetse nie

ANNETTE THERON ’n Gewapende roof wat Vrydagaand in Botrivier in fase drie plaasgevind het, het inwoners geskok oor dié tipe misdaad wat nou in ’n plattelandse dorp voorkom. ’n Huiswinkeleienaar is twee keer deur ’n gewapende rower geskiet. Kapt. Gerrit Botes, woordvoerder van die Caledon-polisie, het by navraag gesê drie mans het Vrydag om 20:00 geld geëis van ’n huiswinkeleienaar in Botrivier. ’n Vierde man het glo buite in die motor gewag. “Die winkeleienaar het glo te lank gevat na hulle sin om die geld te oorhandig. Die een man het die winkeleienaar twee keer geskiet, een skoot agter in sy rug en een in sy nek.” Die mans het ’n bedrag van ongeveer R5 000 gegryp en na buite gehardloop en in ’n swart VW Golf met silwer “mags” gespring en weggejaag. Niemand is nog in hegtenis geneem nie. ’n Saak van roof en poging tot moord word tans ondersoek.

Walker Bay Active postponed The Walker Bay Active outdoor sport event, which was to be presented by the Sea-and-Sand Institute from 30 April to 3 May, has been postponed. Sparks Estherhuizen says he is postponing the event until next year at the request of the sponsors. To find out more about this event, which aims to promote sport and recreation in the Overstrand, contact Sparks Estherhuizen on 028 314 0252 or 083 273 8238, e-mail sparks@hermanus.co.za or visit www.sparkshermanus.co.za.

Botes sê die polisie het vroeër daardie dag huiswinkeleienaars in Botrivier gewaarsku om hul diefwering toe te hou en nie mense toegang tot die winkel te gee nie. “Ons het voorgestel dat hulle hul kliënte deur die tralies bedien om toegang te voorkom.” Terwyl die polisie besig was met die bewusmakingsaksie is hulle in kennis gestel van die voorval by die huiswinkel. Volgens Botes verkeer die slagoffer in ’n bevredigende toestand in die hospitaal. Botes het gesê dit is die tweede voorval van diefstal by ’n besigheid wat in Maart aangemeld is. Vroeër is nog ’n huiseienaar ook van geld beroof, maar daar was nie vuurwapens by betrokke nie. ’n Inwoner van Botrivier, wat ook ’n lid van die buurtwag is, sê hy is bekommerd omdat daar nie genoeg polisievoertuie in Botrivier beskikbaar is vir sigbare polisiëring nie. “Ons het egter goeie samewerking met alle inwoners van Botrivier, wat misdaad aanmeld. Ek doen ook ’n beroep op inwoners van Botrivier om aan te sluit by die buurtwag.” Peter Sinclair, ’n Botrivier-inwoner, sê

hy het gehoor die rowers is van buite Botrivier. “Dit wil voorkom asof hulle op soek was na ’n smokkelhuis en die winkeleienaar het glo nie gehad waarna hulle gesoek het nie. Dis vreeslik dat dié tipe misdaad nou ons dorp tref.” Thea Swanepoel, ook ’n inwoner, sê sy is diep geskok dat die rustige gemeenskap nou dié tipe misdaad moet beleef. “Ons Botrivier-buurtwag se voetpatrollies doen fantastiese werk – ons is so tevrede met hulle. Miskien moet daar uitgebrei word op dié patrollies ten einde misdaad te bekamp.” Quinton Williams, nog ’n inwoner, sê hy was Vrydagaand in fase drie en het aan sy twee vriende wat by hom gekuier het, gesê dit lyk vir hom so oproerig in die gebied. “Dis in dieselfde straat waar hulle laas die bobbejaan geslag het. Die mans wat die winkeleienaar geskiet het, het glo maskers opgehad en ek dink dit is lafhartig. Ons sal almal meer paraat moet wees en uitkyk vir mekaar in Botrivier.” Enigeen met inligting kan vir konst. Fezile Sisilana by die Caledon-speurtak skakel by 028 214 5660.

Youth arrested for murder A 38-year-old man was found dead at the Mount Pleasant sport grounds on Sunday at around 01:00. A 15-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the murder. It is believed that the victim, Clive Prins, was stabbed with a screwdriver. Police are investigating the incident.

Whale Coast 96FM stopped broadcasting, or at least that is what they told listeners on April Fool’s Day when they switched over to 20 minutes of Springbok Radio after a long morning of fake goodbyes. “We received over 40 phone calls from concerned listeners,” says John Mathew, Whale Coast 96FM station manager. “And the reaction on social media was just astounding. It shows how important the radio is to people in the community. “We have renewed our broadcasting license and will be broadcasting another five years,” Mathew reassures.

korrek’ sê munisipaliteit

Overstrand-munisipaliteit eis ’n verskoning van Afriforum oor feitestellings wat gemaak is oor watertoetse in die area (Hermanus Times 20/03/2014), wat volgens hulle nie korrek is nie. Die munisipaliteit kon by Stefan Pretorius van Afriforum wat die toetse gedoen het, vasstel dat die toetse op 21 Februarie net na 10:00 die oggend gedoen is. Die berig meld dat die behandelde rioolwater van 100 dorpe getoets is, en bespreek dan verskeie “dorpe”, waaronder “De Mond (Hermanus)”. Pretorius het aan Hanré Blignaut, adjunkdirekteur van die Overstrand-munisipaliteit se ingenieursdienste, aangedui dat hierdie monster by Onrus geneem is, van water wat in die see inloop. “Dit blyk dus dat daar by Afriforum verwarring was tussen De Mond en Onrus,” sê Coenie Groenewald, OM se munisipale bestuurder. “Nieteenstaande hierdie verwarring kan geen watermonster wat by De Mond of by Onrus geneem is enige verband hou met Overstrand-munisipaliteit se behandelde rioolwater nie, soos wat in die berig geïnsinueer word nie, en hou dit ook geen verband met die departement van waterwese se amptelike Groen Druppel-program nie. “Overstrand-munisipaliteit gee aan die inwoners van Hermanus die versekering dat die E.coli vlakke in Hermanus se behandelde rioolwater voldoen aan die relevante nasionale standaarde, en dat daar geen E.coli in die dorp se drinkwater teenwoordig is nie. Daar is geen rede tot kommer by die publiek nie.” ) Julius Kleynhans, AfriForum se hoof van omgewinsake sê: “AfriForum het meer as 106 dorpe se water getoets, maar Hanré Blignaut, adjunk direkteur van ingenieursdienste by die Overstrand-munisipaliteit, het geweier dat AfriForum die water op die aanleg toets.” Volgens Kleynhans ondersteun die Overstrand-munisipaliteit nie AfriForum se veldtog nie. In ’n e-pos aan Kleynhans skryf Blignaut hulle is “onseker oor die nut van ’n tweede, klaarblyklik baie meer oppervlakkige program, en wat met die resultate beoog word, en is nie ten gunste daarvan nie”. Die OM sê dat “geen watermonster wat by De Mond of by Onrus geneem is, enige verband kan hou met OM se behandelde rioolwater nie”. Maar Kleynhans sê dat Onrus wel onder die Overstrand-munisipaliteit val, en dus is hul argument nie relevant nie. “Ons kan bevestig dat die drinkwater skoon is en ons wag dat Blignaut ons uitnooi om die water by die rioolaanleg te kom toets. “Ons soek oop deure om die water te kom toets. As daar dan gevind word dat ons verkeerd was, sal ons nie huiwer om verskoning te vra nie, maar dit is ongelukkig nie wat die toetsuitslae illustreer nie.”

Tribal Echo rocks Earth Hour

3

HEDDA MITTNER Whale Coast Conservation (WCC), generously supported by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, pulled out all the stops for this year’s Earth Hour celebrations. Not all went smoothly, however, as proceedings were disrupted by light rain and the electricity tripped in the middle of a performance by dancers from the Andriëtte Roux Dance School – well ahead of Earth Hour when it would have been a more appropriate time for silence and darkness to descend. Fortunately the problem was rectified, the rain soon let up and the show could go on. Nothing could dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd as solar lanterns lit the way for the Overstrand Minstrels’ procession and Andy van Aarde’s theme-appropriate songs reflected thoughts about the future of our planet. The highlight of the evening was when Tribal Echo finally took to the stage and entertained the small intrepid crowd with their “klipkop rock” and humorous social comment from lead singer Frazer Barry. After the event Barry tweeted: “We really had an amazing time on stage and in general!! Thanks for the love and support. Local is lekka!!” Anina Lee from WCC says it is a pity that more people were not there to enjoy the evening. Many of those who did attend, however, were disappointed that the establishments in the area did not switch off their electricity during the Earth Hour from 20:30 to 21:30, and that it was “business as usual”. “I thought that’s what celebrating Earth Hour was all about,” one woman said. “The organisers should have made sure that everyone cooperates in switching off their electricity for one hour.”

Former Hermanus resident Mirell Lerm Ventura could be the next Mrs South Africa 2014, following in the footsteps of her Mr South Africa title holder husband, Zino. He won the title in 2008. “I saw first-hand what a life- changing journey it was for him,” says Mirell. “I wanted to enter the pageant because I want to be the best possible ambassador for the Mrs South Africa brand.” Mirell, a former junior mayor of the Hermanus Jun-

ior Town Council and twin sister of Maxzell, is competing with 54 other contestants for the title. According to the directors of the Mrs South Africa Pageant its aim is to emphasise the positive role of married women in South Africa. “It is a phenomenal platform,” says Mirell, “which gives married women a clear voice and I want my voice to be heard.” The Lerm family moved to Hermanus when Mirell was

in her early teens and she matriculated from Hermanus High School. After school she married Zino and they moved to Johannesburg where she studied for a Bachelor of Business Science degree. The Mrs South Africa 20 finalists will be announced on 12 April at a grand gala dinner at Emperor’s Palace. .

Celestè Scheepers has been appointed as the new manager of Hermanus Tourism and started work on Tuesday 1 April. It happened to be the same day that ticket sales opened for this year’s FynArts celebration, and in just a few hours more than 50 tickets had already been sold. “I have known Celestè for many years and am delighted to have her on board. She has lots of experience in tourism and knows the area well,” says Mary Faure, chairperson of Hermanus Tourism and coordinator of Hermanus FynArts. “I look forward to introducing Celestè to all our members.” Before her appointment Celestè had been with Hangklip-Kleinmond Tourism for seven years, starting as administrator and later taking over as manager when Louise Fick left. She played a big role in coordinating the Big Blues Festival in Kleinmond which has become a popular annual attraction which draws thousands of visitors. Celestè originally studied clothing design and marketing, and says she only became involved with tourism after relocating to the Cape from Johannesburg. She has one daughter from her first marriage, Monique (18), and they have been living in

Celestè and her husband, Clifford Krouse, are now looking for a house in Hermanus. “I am very excited about the new challenges that lie ahead,” says Celestè, “but I am also a bit sad at having to give up my baby which is Hangklip-Kleinmond Tourism. “Of course I have visions and ambitions for Hermanus Tourism, but for now my first priority is to find my feet as I have big shoes to fill. And with FynArts just around the corner, there is no time to waste.”

4 Hermanus Times Overberg dalk sesde sportunie in Wes-Kaap

Nuus News

3 April, 2014

’n Nuwe oorkoepelende liggaam vir sport en kultuur in die Hangklip-Kleinmond gebied is onlangs van stapel gestuur toe ’n voorlopige grondwet aangeneem is en ’n bestuurskomitee wat verteenwoordigend is van die gemeenskap, aangewys is om hom in sy eerste formele jaar te lei. Voorsitter Willie August sê ’n mate van weerstand is met die grondwerk vir die nuwe organisasie ondervind vanweë die mislukking van die Hangklip-Kleinmond Sportfederasie enkele jare gelede toe die befondsing daarvoor opgedroog het. Die nuwe liggaam gaan staatmaak op die ondersteuning van die Arabella-gemeenskapstrust om vir hom befondsing te bemiddel deur skakeling met die munisipaliteit, die Departement van Sport en Kultuur en ander liggame wat in die Overberg betrokke is. Mark Philips, sportkoördineerder van die Arabella-gemeenskapstrust, was baie optimisties oor die moontlikhede wat samewerking met die munisipaliteit en ander liggame bied en het bygevoeg dat sportbeurse by universiteite vir talentvolle sportmanne in die gebied deel van die prentjie is. Rudolph Johannes, die tussentydse voorsitter van die Overbergsportraad, het die vergadering ingelig dat planne ver gevorder is om die Overberg van Boland af te stig en as ’n sesde sportunie in die Wes-Kaap te vestig. Saam met August as voorsitter van die nuwe sportkomitee is: on-

Vaandeldraers vir sport en kultuur in Hangklip­Kieinmond: voor van links Frans Mzayiya, Heleen Sliep, Willie August (voorsitter), Ayanda Tyulu, Me­ redith Coert, Rudolph Johannes (Overberg­sportraad) en Kobus Mike (De­ partement van Onderwys); agter André du Toit, Virgil Appel en Garth Fre­ dericks. dervoorsitter André du Toit, ’n plaaslike prokureur en verteenwoordiger van die krieketklub, die sekretaris Meredith Coert en die tesourier Heleen Sliep, gemeenskapsverteenwoordigers Ayanda Tyulu en Ian Koen, en sportkodeverteenwoordigers Virgil Appel (rugby) Francis Mzayiya (sokker) en Llowellyn Arendse (netbal). John Knight verteenwoordig die Hangklip-Kleinmond Toerismeburo en Fanie Krige is as ’n bykomende lid gekoöpteer. Uit hoofde van hul ampte is raadslede Lisel Krige en Philip Appelgrein deel van die komitee, asook Garth Fredericks, wat ’n trustee van die Arabella gemeen-

skapstrust is. Kragtens die goedgekeurde grondwet is die Sport- en Kultuurorganisasie die liggaam wat na die sport- en kultuurbehoeftes van die gemeenskap sal omsien en bystand aan alle sport- en kultuurkodes sal bied. Enigeen wat voldoen aan die organisasie se vereistes vir lidmaatskap is welkom om by die organisasie aan te sluit. Een van die eerste projekte van die organisasie is om vir die Saterdag in die Paasnaweek ’n gemeenskapsportdag te organiseer, het August gesê. – FANIE KRIGE

Council Snippets idated and rezoned to light industrial, while Mussel Road will be closed off. A site development plan will have to be submitted for approval before any building plan may be submitted. The project was identified by the Overstrand Municipality to create development opportunities in order to alleviate unemployment within its jurisdiction area and to promote optimal utilisation of the erven to address its policy on densification within the town. ) Council also resolved to pay an amount of R400 000 to the Hermanus Sports Club to be used to build walls and structures to se-

cure the existing structure and to prevent any damage as a result of sagging and lack of supporting walls. Work on this development has been unable to progress as the once-off grant-in-aid of R6,5 million towards the Hermanus Sports Committee for the relocation of the clubhouse, tennis and squash courts depended on the income derived from the transfer of Sandbaai Commonage. To date this property could not be sold and therefore no funds could be made available for the sports development. It was resolved that the amount of R400 000 be regarded as part payment of the R6,5 million.

At the council meeting of the Overstrand Municipality on 20 March the rezoning of seven erven along Main Road and down Mussel Road were approved, as well as a payment of R400 000 to the Hermanus Sports Club. ) Five of the erven are situated opposite the Mussel Centre and are owned by the municipality. They currently house offices of municipal departments such as traffic, law enforcement and fire and rescue. The other two erven are currently zoned public open spaces, the largest of which is the site that was used by the circus in the past. These erven will now be consol-

Onrus­inwoners bedank vir mooi openbare tuine JAN-HENDRIK COETZER By ’n onlangse besoek deur die burgemeester, Nicolette BothaGuthrie, aan twee tuine op munisipale grond in Onrusrivier, wat hoofsaaklik deur inwoners self onderhou word, het dit duidelik geword dat deur saam te werk, die omgewing rondom jou behoorlik kan “blom”. Twee van die inwoners, Willem en Noekie Fourie, het dit op hulself geneem om na die driehoek-tuin op die hoek van Viljoen- en Radynstraat om te sien. Nie net blomme en plante nie, maar ook groente soos spinasie, pampoen, mielies en tamaties groei weelderig in die tuin. Volgens Noekie is dit vir haar en haar man ’n plesier om daagliks groente en plantjies te plant en die tuin skoon en netjies te hou. “As almal kan ingryp en hul klein deeltjie doen, wys dit net vir jou watter verskil ’n mens in

jou gemeenskap kan maak deur jou omgewing mooi te hou.” Nog ’n inwoner, Annalise Retief, wat oorkant die Hennie Henn-speelpark in Roomestraat woon, hou al vir die afgelope vier en ’n half jaar die park se tuin in stand. “Dit is vir my vreeslik lekker om na die tuin om te sien, maar dit sou nie moontlik gewees het as die Overstrand-munisipaliteit, Onrus-belastingbetalersvereniging en Deon Louw, die skoonmaakkontrakteur vir Wyk 13, asook van die inwoners nie gehelp het nie. Die burgemeester het die inwoners bedank vir hul inisiatief om die omgewing ’n beter en mooier plek te maak. “Deur mense wat self ’n poging aanwend om tuine en parke meer aantreklik te maak en die area skoon te hou, spaar dit die munisipaliteit baie geld wat aan ander noodsaaklike dienste bestee kan word,” het Botha-Guthrie gesê.

Construction for wave energy project to begin soon KERRY VAN RENSBURG The wave energy converter project, initiated by Abagold as a practical solution to decrease their overall energy bill, has been under way for almost six months already. Marius Hugo, managing director of Mean Sea Level (MSL), and the younger son of Dr Pierre Hugo, founder of Abagold and the brains behind the alternative energy plan and Wave Energy Converter, has been tasked with implementing this clean energy initiative. Marius says: “We established Mean Sea Level – a new company jointly owned by Abagold and independent shareholders – to focus on providing clean energy, not necessarily just for Abagold or the aquaculture industry. All industries are re-looking at how they use energy, as the government wants us to use and source energy as efficiently as possible.” Marius is an engineer and has spent the past two and-a-half years in Switzerland. He has experience in wind and solar energy and the financing of clean energy solutions. When Abagold’s EIA for the Wave Energy Converter project came through, he decided to come back home so he could get involved in the project.

He says Abagold’s alternative energy plan consists of two projects: A hydro-electric energy recovery project situated in front of the Harbour Rock restaurant, and the Wave Energy Converter (WEC) pilot project under way at Abagold’s sea front abalone farm. Marius explains that the energy recovery project uses turbines, which is “pretty standard technology”, and will be locally manufactured. “The water Abagold is pumping from the ocean to the farm is first filtered before it goes to the abalone tanks. This same water going back to the ocean will be used by MSL to generate electricity, that’s why we call it energy recovery.” Water from the farm gushes back into the sea with tremendous force. “There is a lot of power rushing out into the ocean. Abagold spends a great deal of money pumping the water; so we may as well use it.” At Abagold’s harbour side sea front area, a lot of preparation work and infrastructure have been put in place for the construction of the WEC. A large steel gantry – a temporary structure – has been completed so that construction of a dam wall built into a section of the sea front, can begin. The gantry will be used to get the enormous concrete WEC units, which are 4 m x 4 m building blocks, moved and lowered into po-

sition for the dam wall. Each of these units will be made in a specially designated nearby casting yard. Standing at the site, Marius says: “The most challenging part is building a wall where those waves are crashing. “The wall, which will be slightly slanted, is the energy converter. It’s like building a tidal pool. The waves run over and through the wall into the dam, then from the elevated dam to seal and fish friendly turbines, which are being locally assembled. We will use wave energy to generate electricity to help Abagold run their pumps. We are giving them clean energy to supplement their Eskom power usage.” He says they will not be able to build in the ocean every day. “When the sea is wild, we prepare. When it’s calm we can build.” Marius says: “South Africa is one of the best places in the world for wave energy. We really have a good

resource to work with here.” He is quick to give his father, Dr Pierre Hugo, the credit for the vision and design of the Wave Energy Converter, which is unique in the world. Abagold and Mean Sea Level work closely with Rob Fryer and his team from Whale Coast Conservation to ensure that the projects meet the highest environmental sustainability standards. Stadler are the Occupational Safety agents on site for the project and Sonja Schriever, a health and safety officer, has been training four workers from MSL who will be involved

in construction work on the dam wall, how to swim in the New Harbour. Schriever says: “Should someone end up in the sea, they are being trained to swim away from the rocks, as trying to climb out at the rocks would be extremely dangerous. NSRI has been contacted and liaised with in case a rescue is needed.” Marius says the final test for the guys that will be working on the wall, including himself, will involve them all jumping into the sea from Abagold’s sea front, and swimming towards a waiting NSRI boat.

Art auction raises thousands for Hospice Around R185 000 was raised during the Opportunity Art 3 event on Saturday at the Overstrand Auditorium. Opportunity Art 3 is seen as the art event of the year, with more than 450 works of art and 25 investment pieces for sale. Sharon Small-Smillie, organiser of the event in aid of the Overstrand Hospice, said they were astounded that there were people queuing to get in from around 15:00

on Saturday afternoon. “The day was fantastic with visitors from all over the peninsula. We are very blessed with the generosity of not only the artists, but also the greater community of the Overstrand which has donated to and supported this event for many years. “Our heartfelt thanks to one and all,” said Small-Smillie. R40 000 was the highest bid received at the auction, for a Hennie Niemann Jnr painting.

Net ’n oulap vir Ouma – benardheid van ons oues Die droom van goue aftreejare in ’n huisie by die see het vir talle afgetredenes en pensioentrekkers op Hermanus en omgewing ’n nagmerrie-situasie geword wat stadig in ’n kleinskaalse tragedie ontwikkel, skryf CAS VAN RENSBURG (in Die Burger 29 Maart). Wanneer die honderde en honderde vakansiegangers in die Kerstyd en oor langnaweke die vensters van hul luukse vakansiehuise kom oopgooi, die blink motors verkeersknope veroorsaak en restaurante tot laataand druis, besef baie min dat Hermanus ’n donker kant het: sy oumense. Hermanus is lank reeds bekend as die “wagkamer van God”. Simon van Vuuren, bestuurder van Huis Lettie Theron, die enigste ouetehuis in die omgewing, verklaar prontuit: “Hulle moet die bord wat by die ingang van die dorp sê dis Hermanus vervang met een wat sê Ouetehuis.” Daar woon inderdaad honderde bejaardes in Hermanus, Sandbaai, Onrusrivier en Fisherhaven, en daar is skaars ’n huis met bejaardes waar daar nie die een of ander nood of behoefte bestaan nie. Talle diensorganisasies het hul hande vol om na die behoeftes van bejaardes om te sien. Anneri Nel, bestuurder van die Hermanus-seniorsentrum, sê hul hooftaak is deesdae om bejaardes so lank moontlik in hul huise te hou, want ander heenkome is moeilik te vind.

Dr. Erika Oosthuysen, maatskaplike werker en versorgingskoördineerder van die Onrusrivierdienssentrum, stem saam. “Dit is bekend dat bejaardes wat hier aftree ouer word as elders. Wanneer hulle hier kom bly, lê daar nog 20 tot 30 lewensjare voor, en dit is waar die probleme ontstaan.” ’n Groot aantal bejaardes is 80 of ouer. Baie is sieklik en het sorg nodig. Daar is ’n besonder hoë voorkoms van alzheimersiekte, en ’n groot persentasie se geld is op of hul pensioen ontoereikend. ’n Onderwyser wat 20 jaar gelede op die toe taamlik klein dorp Onrusrivier afgetree het met ’n pensioen van R5 000 per maand, kan nou skaars sy erfbelasting en elektrisiteit bekostig. Baie vroue se mans is oorlede, en hulle moet met ’n halwe pensioen oor die weg kom. Pieter Hurter, voorsitter van Solidariteit se Helpende Hand-tak op Hermanus, vertel van ’n fyn opgevoede vrou wat maandeliks net R70 oor het om van te leef nadat haar erfbelasting, ensovoorts, betaal is. Die Hermanus-seniorsentrum het 500 lede, wat uit ’n wye verskeidenheid van mense bestaan. Hulle sien om na bejaardes met ’n lae inkomste, gestremde persone en allerlei ander probleme soos die eensaamheid van senior burgers of die lot van die vrou of man wie se eggenoot demensie of ’n ander siekte het en dag en nag versorg moet word. In baie gevalle woon hul kinders in die buiteland en is hulle nie bewus van hul ouers se probleme

nie, omdat die ouers te skaam is om hulle daarvan te vertel. Die sentrum beskik dan ook oor 40 tuisversorgers en ’n verpleegkundige. Hulle verskaf dag-en-nag sorg, huishulpdienste, bedwasdienste, asook etes wat teen R25 per bord daagliks van Voëlklip tot Fisherhaven afgelewer word. Van die 500 lede word net 90 deur die staat gesubsidieer. Die Onrusrivier-dienssentrum van die NG kerk het verlede jaar tot stand gekom en het 73 lede. Ook hulle verskaf etes, maar spits hulle ook toe op onder meer talle kospakkies en tuisversorging. Goedkoop verblyf is ’n ander baie groot probleem. Huis Lettie Theron kan 158 bejaardes huisves, wat alzheimerlyers en sorg vir verswaktes insluit. Daar is egter ’n waglys van agt jaar. Daar is gevalle van vroue van 80 jaar en ouer wat in haglike omstandighede in bediendekamers van vakansiehuise bly. Hurter vertel van ’n man wie se vrou met alzheimers versorging moes kry. Ten einde daarvoor te betaal, kon hy nie sy eie verblyf bekostig nie. Hy het snags laat sy motor by ’n vulstasie ingetrek en daar geslaap tot sonop en dan elders gaan parkeer. Oosthuysen vertel van ’n soortgelyke geval waar ’n man nou sy huis moet verkoop, maar weens die ekonomie nie die prys kan kry wat dit werd is nie. Dit beteken dat ook hý gaan sukkel om vir homself elders goedkoop verblyf te kry nadat sy vrou se kostes gedek is.

Ook gesogte aftreeoorde het vir baie mense ’n valstrik geword. Mense wat ’n paar jaar gelede daar gekoop het met die gerusstelling dat ’n siekeboeg beskikbaar is, besef nou hulle sal nie die versorging kan bekostig nie. Die prys vir versorging in Hermanus se aftreeoorde wissel van R19 000 tot R22 000 per maand. As een van die egpaar dus byvoorbeeld alzheimers kry, moet die lewensmaat kan bekostig om sowat ’n kwartmiljoen rand per jaar te betaal en nog self aan die lewe bly in ’n huis met ’n taamlik stewige maandelikse heffing. Kan hulle dit nie bekostig nie, is die verkoop van die huis in die aftreeoord ál genade – en waarheen dan? Party van die bejaardes het wel kinders of familie wat kan help, maar ook hier is probleme. In baie gevalle woon hul kinders in die buiteland en is hulle nie altyd bewus van hul ouers se probleme nie. Dan is daar die onrusbarende verskynsel van kinders wat al hoe meer nie belang stel om hul ouers te help nie. Trouens, baie teer op hul ouers. Hurter vertel van ’n 87-jarige vrou wat in ’n huis sonder elektrisiteit (afgesny) in haar bed moes lê sonder dat iemand haar kon was of met haar toiletgeriewe kon help, terwyl haar volwasse seuns bewus was van die situasie. “Daar is ’n ander verontrustende situasie wat besig is om sy verskyning te maak,” sê Oosthuysen. “Dit is dat al hoe meer kinders by hul bejaarde ouers kom afpak. Die

dogter skei en kom bly met haar kinders by haar ouers.” Hurter beaam dit. “Gaan kyk smiddae wanneer die kinders by die naskoolsentrum uitkom. Dit lyk of die inwoners van ’n ouetehuis hulle kom haal. Net gryskoppe. Dit is die oupas en oumas.” Werk in Hermanus is skaars en die salarisse baie klein. ’n Geskeide vrou sonder besondere opleiding sal gelukkig wees as sy meer as R3 000 per maand verdien. Die dienssentrums en ander hulporganisasies, soos Hermanus se verpleegagentskap wat versorgers verskaf, het groot organisasies geword. En die geld is min. Die Hermanus-seniorsentrum en Huis Lettie Theron is ’n program van Badisa (die barmhartigheidsdiens van Wes-Kaap NG Kerk), maar die nood is so groot dat inkomste van elders verkry moet word om geen verlies te ly nie. Volgens Van Vuuren moet sowat twee derdes van Huis Lettie Theron se inwoners gesubsidieer word. Hulle ontvang wel ’n subsidie van sowat R70 000 per maand van die staat, maar dit is nie naastenby genoeg nie. As ’n mens op ’n sogenaamde rykmansdorp soos Hermanus begin grawe, tref dit jou algaande dat hier ’n krisissituasie aan’t ontwikkel is. “En ons weet nog nie eers die helfte van die nood hier in ons gebied nie,” sê Oosthuysen. “Die Afrikaners is trotse mense, en hulle praat nie graag oor hul geldsake of probleme nie. Daar is baie wat swaarkry, maar dit wegsteek.”

Locating the three historical public laundry sites, better known as the ‘wasbakkies’, an upcoming outing to Boontjieskraal and the launch of the historical walks are some of the activities the Hermanus History Society (HHS) is currently busy with. Robin Lee (secretary), touched on these projects at the Annual General Meeting held on 27 March. Plaque at Wasbakkies site Old Hermanusers will know that in the late 19th century, the Hermanus Municipality built three public laundry sites (wasbakkies) as the tap water in the village, from surface rivers, was brown due to vegetation. Women used to wash linen for the local hotels here as clear water fed into the wasbakkies from underground streams. An additional plaque is to be erected at the wasbakkies to denote their historical value to the area and HHS members Elsabé and Basil Brink and Angela Heslop went on a scramble outing to see if they could locate dates on the remaining wasbakkies. Four structures are located (two reservoirs and two wasbakkies) in various states of damage in extensive foliage. “Sadly no dates were found so this period will be speculated as 19th century,” says Heslop. Guided historical walks Members have also participated in test-runs for the guided historical walks, another project of the society, which will be launched on 17 April. Walk 1 is up Hoy’s Koppie, and Walk 2 is a stroll around Historic Hermanus starting from The Marine ho-

Boontjieskraal visit The next member’s outing is to Boontjieskraal farm, which has a long history in the development of the Overberg. It is situated on the wagon trail from Bot River to Caledon and was visited by many well-known figures. Hermanus Pieters himself lived on the farm for some time and is buried there. Other projects of the HHS include: ) The erection of a memorial plaque at the upgraded Swallow Neethling garden. An organisation dedicated to the care of the site, Friends of Swallow Park, is to be established. ) The society may collaborate with Charles Fourie, the author and

’Net ’n oulap vir ouma’ EDITORIAL COMMENT Have your say Wading through the municipality’s draft budget for 2014 – ’15 can be daunting especially if you do not have a financial background. To to be part of the public participation process and to have your say on aspects of the draft budget that concern you, it is necessary for ordinary citizens to make an effort to get to a library in the Overstrand, or to access the budget doc­ ument on the Overstrand Municipality’s website. Familiarise yourself with what lies ahead for your household and how much more you will have to pay for rates and services. Ward meetings are taking place from 2 to 23 April and this is where you can ask questions about the draft budget and query why certain decisions have been made. You then have until 30 April to submit a formal comment. In general, pay attention to the munici­ pal notices published in the HT inviting public participation, so you can respond and be heard before it’s too late.

Upgrade communities to restore pride in people Doubtless underprivileged communities suffer a loss of pride, not just in South Africa, but in other countries as well. Here us oldies can see this worrying shift very clearly in the deterioration in morals together with the terrible increase in man-on-man crime in degraded poor areas. Will South Africa also be reduced to confrontational politics as it has been happening up north and in the Middle East? This may not be so improbable, for aggrieved people in South Africa are now shouting louder than even before. Democracy seldom works in unstable countries. The people may elect their members to Parliament, but the ruling party invariably seems to want to settle in “for life”. The only way to unseat them if they do not perform is then to kick them out by force. Hermanus is a beautiful town, enjoyed by many, but those of us who look below the surface, like so many South Africans do, are fearful of the future. Not all living areas are spick and span and we need to focus on these deprived areas, not just to make them better places to live in, but to try and uplift the communities by making the people prouder of their surroundings. To achieve this, it is a prerequisite to provide employment to the people, because employment (any employment) is better than being on the dole, which really destroys pride. Domestic employment has fallen over the edge of the cliff – just look at all the empty houses in Voëlklip and the few workers that walk daily past our houses to work – clearly this has been a blow to the poor. My suggestion is for Hermanus to lead the way. The Council must form a “Foundation”, financed by all the rich people of Hermanus. There are plenty of able people around who can create small committees of volunteers for managing a process that focuses on the beautification of the poorer areas of this town to restore the residents’ pride. The Ndebele of South Africa set a good example of pride in their homes, which can be achieved nationwide with little effort. The private sector of SA is generous and knows it is in its own interest to uplift the people by contributing to this cause. The people themselves must be be motivated to create and manage “Foundation” type schemes.

‘Mmmmm, just like Cape Town and Jo’burg’ “Don’t you love living in Hermanus? It’s so quiet and peaceful and beautiful.” “Oh absolutely. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, Hermanus is so relaxed and safe and hassle-free. Just think of all those poor people in Cape Town and Jo’burg; rushing about, fighting traffic, noise, pollution, crime, crowds. Oh, I would hate it. No, Hermanus is just the perfect place to be.” “Well I wouldn’t say it was perfect. It is wonderful but it’s not perfect. We could do with a few new things.” “No you’re right of course, it’s not perfect. And we could do with some new things. Better shops and restaurants for example.” “Yes, definitely some new shops and restaurants. I’m so bored with the shops and restaurants we’ve got. We need a small shopping centre.” “Not a small shopping centre, we need a big shopping centre with one of those enormous superstores that sell everything under one roof.” “And a giant pharmacy.” “Oh yes, we must have a giant pharmacy. And a colossal electronics shop.” “And a huge computer outlet.” “And some of those massive furniture, lifestyle shops.” “You know what? We don’t need a small shopping centre, we need a mega-mall.” “With proper parking. The parking situation in Hermanus is pathetic. Last week, when it was cold and windy, I had to park two blocks away from the chemist and then walk in the wind, all the way to the chemist and back to my car. I mean really, what is this? We’re not living in the dark ages are

we?” “You’re right. I mean it’s all very well having sunshine and endless beaches and sparkling seas and mountains and cliff paths and lagoons but really, let’s be honest, what is there to do in Hermanus? What we need is a cinema.” “Not a cinema, we need choices, we need a multiscreen cinema complex.” “And a food court. How unfair is it that we don’t even have a food court?” “And one of those gaming places with all the electronic machines so the kids don’t have to spend all day on the beach or in the sea.” “And we need a casino. Why can’t we have a casino? It can’t be all about the kids, we need some entertainment too.” “You’re right. It’s ridiculous that we have to go over the mountain for everything.” “Of course it is, we deserve better. We need a sports complex with an Olympic swimming pool and diving boards and rugby and cricket fields with stadiums.” “And theatres and nightclubs so there’s something to do at night.” “And how sad is it that if we want to travel anywhere we have to go over the mountain – again – to the airport? We need an airport in Hermanus.” “An international airport!” “If only we had all those things Hermanus would be perfect.” “Mmmmm, just like Cape Town and Jo’burg.”

Die artikels oor die Overstrand-munisipaliteit se nuwe begroting in die Hermanus Times van 27 Maart en die Cas van Rensburg-artikel (sien bl. 8) oor die krisissituasie onder die ouer garde in Hermanus, wat onder bogenoemde opskrif in Die Burger van Saterdag 29 Maart verskyn het, noop my om hierdie skrywe aan u te rig. Die “rykmansdorp-sindroom” blyk diep in ons amper geldgierige DA Overstrand-munisipaliteit ingeburger te wees. Die soustrein stoom voort, met skynbaar geen kennis en/of gevoel vir die benarde posisie waarin so baie van ons belastingbetalers verkeer nie. Vir my was die eerste skoot oor die boeg van onregmatigheid, die vullisdrom-sage. ’n Vullisverwyderingsdiens wat twee maal per week gelewer is en R129 per maand gekos het, word skielik net een maal per week gelewer en die koste gaan op na R140 per maand. Terselfdertyd word ’n onregverdige en onbillike koste gehef op vullisverwydering by deeltitel eenhede – waar meeste van ons ouer mense bly. En nou kom die volgende sarsies. Om geld te spaar blyk dit dat die bobbejaan-monitors nou die trekpas gaan kry, en personeel wat jare se ondervinding en kennis het van tropbewegings en beveiliging van die buurte, gaan sonder werk sit, terwyl die belastingbetaler magteloos is teen die bobbejane. Blykbaar is dit die Grondwet, wat al van 1994 daar staan, se skuld. Het enige munisipale beampte al aansoek gedoen by provinsiale en nasionale regering dat hulle die taak kom oorneem? Verder lê daar om die draai vir ons ’n buitensporige toename van 15% in erfbelasting voor, en is daar ook munisipale salarisaanpassings, wat die inflasiekoers na ’n foefie laat lyk. ’n Vinnige sommetjie toon aan dat die salarisverhogings vir raadslede en senior beamptes amper gelykstaande is aan die besparing met die uitgooi van die bobbejaan-monitors. Munisipale bestuur – ons vra dat die munisipaliteit soos ’n redelike persoon en ook soos ’n goedbestuurde maatskappy sal optree. Die finansiële situasie vir belastingbetalers is benard. Dit is tyd dat julle ’n bietjie konsolideer. Verminder daardie yslike groot begrotings wat julle het. Doen net dit wat absoluut onuithoudbaar noodsaaklik is. Verminder die groot las wat julle op julle belastingbetalers sit. Ons hoop tog so dat julle sal luister.

Don’t panic, Hermanus: the mall won’t make the CBD close down I lived for 26 years next to Tygervalley Shopping Centre, eventually next to Willowbridge also. Everywhere the same thing was said, that the Bellville CBD would die and so would Checkers here in Hermanus, where the CBD would suffer. What rubbish! Judging from the recent article by Jenny Smith, it has become clear that this scare has been broadcast by her and others, by way of articles originating from the alliance consisting of the Hermanus Ratepayers Association and the Hermanus Business Chamber of Commerce. They are the only real complainants about the mall and only seem to complain when it comes to trolley shopping. Jenny, the shops and established businesses in the CBD will not close, although you may find a very small reshuffle. Imagine the CBD in five years’ time without a mall. More hous-

es bulldozed, more high-rise buildings, with town dwellings gone. Future Hermanus Central, that’s a reality. The CBD consists of shops as well as houses. The houses were what gave Hermanus its village atmosphere, seemingly lost in time. These houses should be returned to their original look, with pot-plants and the like; business advertising should conform to European customs for the sake of restoring the town centre look for visitors. It would also be for the good of the CBD that when such businesses move on, these premises be turned into town dwellings again, as there is a shortage of rental homes in central Hermanus. District 6 and Kloofnek are good examples of what has been done in the Cape Town CBD to create tourist attractions. Here too there will be beneficiaries from the mall as was the

case with the Kenridge Shopping Centre, thatbattled to find tenants. Tygervalley was built and KSC then became a sought-after location. This is not to say the Gateway shopping centre has the same problem, but it will be the main beneficiary, as its shops will be in demand as business gathers momentum, because malls tend to have higher rentals. Whale Coast Mall is small and you will find that even the property opposite Sandbaai Engen will also be developed into a shopping centre as business moves ahead to accommodate the shortfalls of the mall. People, let the mall happen so that everyone in the Overberg region can enjoy a proper shopping experience. Let’s take hands and support the improvement of Hermanus CBD.

) It’s true that malls kill off CBD areas, but look

at our CBD and ask yourself when last these land­ lords improved these ancient buildings. I say, build the mall – it will create much­needed jobs, then follow leading cities and turn the CBD into a social hub offering apartments and entertainment. – R.

Stop dreaming! ) Who is going to stop town planning from ruining our beautiful village of Hermanus? – JACKIE ) Petrus Hendriksz: “S’baai mall: no movie house!” letter 20 March. Thank you for opening our eyes and putting everything in perspective in plain simple English. – CHER - SANDBAAI ) Good news about new oncology unit to be built. It will create much needed jobs etc. We also need the new mall. Hermanus and surrounding areas are growing; more people which equals more shops, doctors, schools, housing and jobs progress can’t be stopped by a few greedy businessmen trying to prevent us from having the option of where to spend our hard­earned money.– MRS MITCHELL - SANDBAAI ) Baie dankie aan die dame wat my parkeerkaart­ jie opgetel het in Woolworths se aanpaskamer, en nog moeite gedoen het om dit te neem na Chec­ kers.

As jy haastig is, verlaat jou huis dan ’n paar minute vroeër. ) To the “English Teacher” criticising HAWS for its bad grammar: If your comments are not an early April Fool’s joke, then I think you are a real “girl” dog! ) Ewe ontsteld oor RM Sandbaai se bewering dat Zwelihle nie meters het nie, doen ek toe moeite en kontak die munisipaliteit. Die persoon wat die inligting aan hom/haar gegee het, is foutief. Die persoon wat die meter skuif is slegs ’n kontrakwer­ ker met beperkte kennis. Zwelihle het meters en dit word maandeliks gelees. Sal dalk goed wees as jy ook in die toekoms eers die waarheid uitvind.

Juis daarom gaan ek beswaar aan­ teken teen 15%­verhoging in eiendomsbelasting. – LINETTE ) Beach Club has 300 units most of which are empty most of the time as it is a holiday resort. How can council justify bleeding us dry by charg­

Jetta

ing R140 per month per unit for a few communal refuse bins, in addition to exorbitant annual mu­ nicipal increases. – CATHY GIBSON ) Kan die munisipaliteit nie ander bome plant by Market Square en om die draai by Fusion nie? Daardie bome maak net ’n gemors. ) Car guards at the back of Eastcliff Spar, and outside FNB and KFC harass the elderly and vul­ nerable women, especially in the evenings, for money. They block your vehicle or obscure your line of sight until you give them money. I saw an elderly woman feel so intimidated at the Eastcliff parking that she gave R50 to a car guard just so that she could close her car door which he was blocking while demanding money. They are crimi­ nals who should be charged for loitering in these areas. Some car guards also have criminal cases against them, so stop handing them money. HPP and the police must do their jobs and ban car guards in the CBD, before someone is robbed by them. Easy money is a magnet for criminals. Let’s work together to keep Hermanus safe. If you have money to throw away then consider donating it to a recognised charity or to HAWS instead of using it to attract criminals to our town. – STOP CRIME

Die son kom weer Sy oog is nie op aardskuddings elders in die wêreld en “skuddings” in politiekery ter plaatse nie, sê oom Langfaan toe hy gisteroggend bel om te vra of hy ’n snorkel kan leen. Hy moet Kaapstad toe en hy hoor die N1 duskant die plek waar hy wil wees is onder water. Hy moet maar bly wees want daai front wat gisteroggend een en almal oral in die Wes-Kaap op die verkeerde voete gevang het, is so tagtig km suidoos van die Overstrand verby. Die neerslae hier rond kon baie erger gewees het. Die byna ongelooflike swaai in die weer, veral oor die Overstrand, het Dinsdagnag plaasgevind toe daai middernagtelike rukwind van ons net onder 100 km/h so drie kilometer bo ons koppe gehaal het. Wat dié keer anders van die nukkerige rukwind was, was dat hy uit die noorde gekom het en voor die son Woensdagoggend kon opkom het hy reg om die klok van noord tot weer noord gedraai. Kort voor sonop het hy met ’n laaste bui suid gestaan en ’n klomp koue op die Overstrand losgelaat. Hy is darem bly hy het ’n 1965-Fordjie wat hoog van die grond af is, sê Langfaan hier oor die foon. Die weer lyk vir hom of dit vorentoe gaan sports maak waarvan die sportmense niks sal hou nie. En net daar in die Fordjie het hy pas besluit om sy tuintjie bietjie weg van die see af te skuif, want hulle praat van dat die see anderhalf meter gaan styg omdat die ysberge van onder af aan die smelt is en see toe gly.

Nee wat, troos Weerhaan; die son kom teen elfuur (Donderdag) agter die wolke uit danksy die suidoos, en skyn lekker tot vyfuur toe. Teen 2 nm Vrydag is hy weer uit en jaag die temperatuur op na 20 °C. Die oostewind kom deur die nag op en Saterdagmiddag wemel die Overstrand weer van besoekers om in die sonnetjie van 22 °C te bak en te kuier. Die noordoos kom neuk egter deur die nag weer Sondag en ons sien die volle son eers weer volgende Woensdag wanneer die suidoos terug is. Los maar die snorkel, sê oom Langfaan. Intussen kan vroutjie maar die tuin uitlos. Die maan trek erg op die aarde om sy eerste kwartier Maandag te haal. (In dié dae kan net gesnoei word. Vir die boere is dit tyd om graan te plant).

LETTERS

Public participation – smoke and mirrors Being an election year, the Overstrand Municipality and Council (OM) will tread carefully not to upset the ratepayers who must cast their vote on 7 May 2014. However, with their very first “communication” it is clear that public participation is a farce and that the ratepayers will have no meaningful say in the final budget. Let me explain the smoke and mirrors which are being sold as “Public Participation” (PP). “Participate” is defined as: Be involved; take part. Remember the 2011 municipal elections? Remember what happened after all the PP boxes were all ticked and everybody had their say? The 2012 budget was duly passed by the council. After all the elections, we were hit with a double whammy, which was never highlighted during the budget process: • Electricity deposits were raised, extracting some R12 million from ratepayers and businesses. • An adjustment was made to the rates policy between the interim budget and the final budget so that RUE was charged per unit instead of per property – very sneaky. The latter exercise was repeated with the 2013 budget with regard to refuse removal. All of these resulted in public debacles of note because of insufficient public participation with Kleinmond pensioners taking to the streets and Fynbospark pensioners taking OM to the Public Protector for increasing its refuse bill by some 700% after OM refused to review the tariff policy. As far as OM is concerned, the ultimate forum for PP is the Overstrand Municipal Advisory Forum (OMAF), which is made up of four representatives from each ward. No qualification or experience is needed, apart from being a ratepayer. The debacle around the wasteful expenditure of the planning of an amphitheatre at Grotto is another example of council’s poor public participation record. And so we can go on… Without going into detail of the functionality of the ward committees, there are three things that show that the system is archaic and useless: 1. In Chapter 2 dealing with Good Governance of the Draft Annual Report (page 64), the following paragraph appears: “The ward committee should endeavour to reach consensus on its representation at OMAF. If this is not possible, the basis must be determined by the Chairman, taking cognisance of the debate in the ward committee in

this regard.” (The chairman being an Executive Councillor will therefore have the final say). 2. In the very next paragraph, the following very disturbing piece appears: “The above must not be interpreted to mean that a Ward Councillor or the municipality must always liaise with the ward committee before a decision is taken. A Ward Councillor may not be instructed by a ward committee on how to vote on any matter which serves before the municipality.” (So if the ward is against the budget or any other matter, they have no vote.) 3. Participation of the general public in these ward committees (some which are closed to the public – why?) is almost non-existent. Meetings which were held, until very recently, at 14:00 in the afternoons attracted a small number of people. Certainly not representing the wider community. People don’t have the time or inclination to attend meetings that have no powers – it is a waste of time. I doubt that more than 10% to 15% of households are reached through this archaic system. In short, the chances of widespread PP is nil. Input given is most often overridden by council. Evidence of this can be found as an attachment to the 2013-2014 budget, where more than 100 pages of comment and representations can be found – which were largely, if not totally, ignored. OMAF and Ward Committees are nothing more than talk shops, whatever the politicians wish us to believe. Chapter 10 of the Constitution read with Section 1 establishes the principle of an open and accountable government that responds to its citizenry. The onus the Constitution lays on the legislatures is extended to the public administration (in Chapter 10). Amongst the principles laid down for the public administration are the requirements that: • “people’s needs must be responded to, and the public must be encouraged to participate in policy-making”, • “public administration must be accountable”, and • “transparency must be fostered by providing the public with timely, accessible and accurate information”. The DA Constitution opens with an “Open Opportunity for All” and in its vision clearly states “All South Africans are of equal worth and have a right to full participation in the life of our common South African society”. I hope that includes the Overstrand.

Ratepayers and businesses are generally quite gatvol of OM and the annual budgeting non-involvement, and the resultant battle that cannot be won, because of what is perceived as an arrogant and dictatorial council. I am sure we will get a legalistic and meaningless response from OM instead of addressing the issue head-on with action. Like a public debate on the 2014-2015 budget. Let there be true public participation in which all can be involved and take part.

PIET LOUW

Coenie Groenewald, Municipal Manager responds: The second last paragraph of the writer’s letter and more specifically his reference to “a legalistic and meaningless response”, is a clear indication that he knows the correct response to his criticism as it will not compliment his viewpoints. The fact that I do not comment on any or all of his statements should not be construed as an admission as to the correctness of same. It is important to note that well structured, as opposed to haphazard, public participation is of importance within our system of democratic local government where citizen concerns are formally expressed through elected representatives–referred to as ward councillors. As such the South African ward participatory system of local government allows for the establishment of ward committees to facilitate community participation in local matters. It is furthermore important to note that ward committees have no original powers. Their role is to act as advisory committees to ward councillors and via ward councillors to the executive mayor or council. Ward committees thus provide for a structured channel of communication and a local point of access to the council. It is, nevertheless, still for a councillor, as elected representative of citizens in his/her

ward, to apply his/her mind when considering matters submitted to council. The municipality and its council have a constitutional obligation to act within the ambit of legislation. If the writer is of the opinion that the system in terms of which we are to operate, is archaic (though the legislation in terms of which ward committees are established, originates from 1998), he should direct his frustrations at the national sphere of government who is responsible for the adoption of legislation in Parliament. Apart from the aforementioned, the municipality is obliged to consult the community in a whole plethora of other matters such as, but not limited to, town planning matters, alienation of land, adoption of by-laws and policies, etc. The community is invited, by means of advertisements in the local printed media, to comment on same or to submit representations to the municipality. As far as the public participation process for the 2014/15 budget is concerned, readers are reminded that notwithstanding the fact that all budget documentation is available for scrutiny on our municipal website, all the libraries and the offices of the respective area managers, special ward committee meetings (which are open to the public at all times) to explain the aforementioned budget, are to take place over the next three weeks. An advertisement to this effect indicating the venue, date and time of such meetings appeared in, inter alia, last week’s edition of the Hermanus Times and which advertisement is repeated in this issue. Citizens are invited to attend these meetings to gather information regarding the said budget. The public at large has the opportunity to submit written representations to the municipality on or before 30 April 2014. All representations will be tabled in council on 28 May 2014 for the latter to consider.

NATURE MATTERS:

Cape Fold Mountains

DID YOU KNOW: The coastal mountains of the Overstrand belong to the Cape Fold Mountains which, according to Anina Lee, communications manager at Whale Coast Conserva-

tion, were formed about 250 million years ago. They were folded when the ancient continents collided to form the supercontinent Pangea. At this time most of the Cape Fold was being compressed under the earth’s surface, making the rocks malleable, able to bend without breaking. The result can be seen in the unique ‘folds’ for which the Cape Fold is named. Softer rocks

17

above were eroded over time, exposing the more resistant sandstones of the Cape Fold. These rocks in turn eroded to exceptionally poorquality soils on which our unique fynbos now grows.

Cape Fold Mountains form the base for fyn­ bos growth.

Meet travel and adventure author at U3A Best-selling British author of travel books, journalist, explorer and broadcaster, Tim Butcher, will be the guest speaker at the U3A: Overberg’s open meeting on Thursday 10 April.

Tim Butcher will be the guest speaker at the U3A’s open meeting on 10 April.

Butcher will give a presentation in the Overstrand Auditorium on travel and adventure in his books Blood River and Chasing the Devil. Blood River is an account of his 2004 journey through DR Congo overland from Lake Tanganyika and down to the Congo River, following the route of Henry Morton Stanley’s 1874 – 1877 trans-African expedition. It has been compared with Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, was translated into six languages and reached number one status in the Sunday Times best-seller list of 2008. Chasing the Devil describes a 350 mile trek through Sierra Leone and Liberia following a trail blazed by Graham Greene and recounted in Greene’s Journey without Maps, published in 1936. Butcher was born in Rugby in the UK in 1967 and was on the staff of The Daily Telegraph from 1990 to 2009. He covered all the major conflicts across the Balkans, the Middle East and Africa. In 2010 he was recognised for his contribution to journalism and writing with an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Northampton. Butcher is based in Cape Town. During a recent survey to determine U3A members’ interests, adventure was very high on the list. “This is an opportunity for all the adventurous spirits to enjoy an evening with someone who has experienced danger and excitement and who is not only an excellent author, but also a very accomplished speaker,” says Barbara Pretorius, U3A: Overberg committee member. The talk begins at 17:30 and the cost is R10.

Learn about objects in the universe at HAC meeting The guest speaker at the Hermanus Astronomy Centre’s (HAC) monthly meeting on Thursday 3 April at Sansa at 19:00 is Case Rijsdijk, an astronomer and speaker of note. Case is a past president and honorary member of the Astronomical Society of Southern Africa (ASSA) and always plays a leading role in astronomy outreach events throughout the country (SciFest in Grahamstown, Scopex in Johannesburg, ASSA Symposium). He is an active member of ASSA’s Council and chairperson of the Garden Route Astronomy Centre. Case’s previous talks to the HAC included: The Bethlehem Star; Why SALT needed eye surgery – one week after the problem was fixed; and The Higgs Boson – one month after its discovery. On Thursday his topic is: Finger-printing the Universe. He will discuss how astronomers analyse light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation as well as high energy particles to learn about objects in the universe.

HYUNDAI’S LOCAL WINNER: TOP­SELLER GETS EVEN BETTER

Facelift keeps ix35 ahead of the rest HANJO STIER This week, for all sorts of great reasons, I ticked a lot of vehicles off my to-drive list. Among these were Italian thoroughbreds and hilariously fast sports cars but most surprising addition is the Hyundai ix35. Yup, that’s right. Up to this morning I had never set foot in one. This had nothing to do with the car itself – or not quite. Had it not been so pretty, popular and eagerly awaited, I may have had a chance to drive it when the mid-size SUV first surfaced a few years ago. The ix35 Press fleet was booked out, booked out and then booked out some more every time I tried to test one. This meant that Hyundai had finally made it; their latest car was so popular that even journalists were getting into fights about them. My immediate circle of friends was no better and I remember a few agonizing months during which I got quizzed about the car and then quickly had to change the subject. “Nice weather today...” By Hyundai’s own admission, the ix35 is a local winner, helping the company to achieve third overall spot in passenger car sales. It’s topselling vehicle in its segment with about a 10% market share. This figure recently started declining steadily, which required a quick refresh to keep the competitors at bay. Initial supply problems have also been addressed: it is now produced in the Czech Republic to ensure that you (and hopefully, your local motoring journalist too) don’t have to wait for the new SUV. Not that you could tell the difference at a glance, Hyundai was right not to mess with

By Hyundai’s own admission, the ix35 is a local bull’s eye, helping the company to achieve third spot overall in passenger car sales. PHOTO: QUICKPIC those looks and the changes are very discreet. The biggest difference lies in new light clusters, wheels and improved specifications; most of these affect only the more expensive models in the range. Three trim levels (Premium, Executive and Elite) are divided among two engines (two-litre pet-

rol or turbo-diesel) and a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearboxes. Both engines and gearboxes have improved efficiency and refinement but we’re told a new 1,7-litre turbodiesel is also in the pipeline and currently zipping around the country for testing. Currently, the 2.0 MPi

petrol engine puts out 116kW/192Nm and the 2.0 CRDi 130kW/383Nm. Depending on spec level, the ix35 has LED daytime running lights, projector headlights, LED rear lights, roof rails and new grille. Inside, you get an adjustable multifunction steering wheel, at least two

airbags, on-board computer, bigger cup holders with blue illumination and a radio/CD/mp3/AUX/ipod/ Bluetooth audio system. Elite models feature a sunroof and starter button while sharing things like bigger wheels, ESP and stability control, active yaw control, hill descent and hill start assist, four more airbags, leather trim, auto lights, climate control, cruise control, TFT touch-screen, reverse camera and three-mode Flex Steer system with the Executive range. All models, even the wee ones, have ABS brakes and electronic brake-force distribution, can carry between 486 and 583 kg, tow from 750 kg (unbraked) to 2 000kg (braked) and carry 100 kg on the roof. Tank size is 58L, the turning radius about 5,3m and every model carries a full-size spare wheel. An ix35’s boot space can be extended from 591F to 1 436F by folding the two-stage 60/40 split rear bench. For the adventurous, ground clearance is 170 mm, approach and departure angles are 28 and 27 degrees, wading depth is 500 mm; the on-demand AWD system is only available in the top-spec diesel. I drove both petrol and turbo-diesel at the launch; the punchy turbodiesel clearly outshines the naturally-aspirated petrol car. All vehicles had less than 1 000 km on their clocks though, so the petrols should loosen up with a few more numbers in their digital milometer. Prices range from R319 900 for the 2.0 Premium to R449 900 for the topspec 2.0 CRDi Auto AWD. Hyundai’s 5-year/150 000km warranty and 5year/90 000km service plan will help the ix35 to retain its local sales crown. Perhaps this time round – fingers crossed – I’ll even get one to test for a week. Galimoto Media

Toyota’s Corolla is no “fridge on wheels” HANJO STIER

I’m not a connoisseur of household appliances, but when I do buy one, I always try to get one of the more reputable brands. The only time I did splash out on something extravagant for the kitchen was when Dr. Porsche’s family business made a kettle. Other than that, I tend to ignore tumble-dryer sales and don’t subscribe to Appliance Enthusiast magazine. What I’m also not a big fan of is the unnecessary mockery and bullying of certain vehicles: all Defenders break down, every Mini driver is gay and the Toyota Corolla is just a motorized fridge. Really? I’ve closely examined examples of both types of machines and can c onfirm that they bear no resemblance to each other whatsoever. Someone, latching on to the Corolla’s abundant sales and Plain Jane character, called it a refrigerator and the avalanche of abuse started. I’m not a Corolla devotee, but I think it has received more flak than necessary. A slightly boring yet amazingly sensible car – what’s wrong with that? With more than 40 million sales worldwide and almost a million in southern Africa may make it the most common car in the world. This also means most people have a good Co-

The interior also got a severe makeover, its upgraded materials and vastly contrasting shapes taking notes from the 86 and some Lexus designs. PHOTO: QUICKPIC rolla story to tell. A colleague had one as her first car, a lovely brown model with beige interior, inherited from her grandfather. One of my best friends got a Corolla with his driver’s license, handed down from his sister who had first got it from their mom. Notice anything? Yup, on top of being very practical, the Corolla is the epitome of that lovely Afrikaans word “kanniedood” – they just don’t die. (Most of Windhoek’s taxi drivers will agree!) Toyota’s 11th generation Corolla echoes the brand’s new design languag: a tapered Tshaped nose and sculpted surfaces that aren’t too extreme to scare off existing clients; understated and modern. Its length and wheelbase have grown slightly to increase comfort

and practicality levels even more. Snazzy door handles and chrome trim add class to Corolla, which is available in seven tasteful colours. Optimised aerodynamics, weight, rigidity and running gear give the new model better consumption, handling and ride-comfort levels. The cd value of 0.27 is class-leading. The interior is new and its upgraded materials with contrasting shapes follow some 86 and Lexus designs. Better seat and steering wheel adjustment and more space provide improved ergonomics – the new Corolla is better in almost every measurable way. More noise damping makes this car exceptionally quiet and despite a shorter rear overhang, boot size has increased to 452F. Im-

25

proved specifications and standard features are also most welcome as we recently discovered that the outgoing Corolla was completely out-gunned in a C-segment sedan comparison. Four spec. levels divide the car’s features into Esteem (entry-level), Prestige (midrange), Sprinter (sporty) and Exclusive (luxury) grades. Highlights include power everything, climate control (top two only), touchscreen TFT multimedia system, Bluetooth (not Esteem), smart entry and reversing camera (Exclusive). Four engines and two gearboxes power th2014 Corolla. Petrol four-cylinders are available in 1.3L (73kW/128Nm), 1.6L (90kW/154Nm) and 1.8L (103kW/173Nm) while a brand-new 1.4L turbo-diesel (66kW/205Nm) is the thinking person’s choice with averages of just 119g CO2/km and 4.5F/100km. I sampled most engines on the Corolla’s recent launch and as impressive as the tiny turbo-diesel is, the 1 600 petrol engine was my pick on the various routes at sea level. All engines are available with a six-speed manual gearbox, the 1.6L and 1.8L can also be had with the new Multidrive S automatic gearbox. As can be expected, new Corolla aced the EuroNCAP crash test rating with five stars, its safety arsenal including up to seven airbags, improved pedestrian protection, clever seatbelts, whiplash lessening, increased child restraints, ABS brakes with emergency assist and force distribution. Traction and stability control are fitted to the two top models, as well as hill start assist. Prices start at R214 900 for a 1.3 Esteem, the equivalent 1.4 turbo-diesel costs R237 900 and the top-spec 1.8 Auto is R283 900. There are eight other models/spec levels in between. Toyota has a 3-year/100 000km warranty and 5-year/90 000km service plan. This 11th generation Corolla is advertised as “a car you can be proud of” but I would put a different spin on it. The Corolla is a sensible, practical, value -for-money car that your daughter will probably hand down to your grandson one day. Galimoto Media

Michael Stephen in his Audi at the front in Class A

MOTORPRESS Round two of the Super Series in Cape Town saw Michael Stephen (A1) claim the championship lead in the Class A of the Bridgestone Production Cars. Stephen has claimed the title on three separate occasions and a good performance at Killarney saw him move into first place. “I was fastest in qualifying, won the first race and finished in second place in the feature race,” says Stephen who also posted lap times among

those of the top two racers during the practice sessions. “We’ll be racing at our home circuit next, we know the track and setup so it should be a strong round.” According to the championship rules, Stephen will have to start the feature race, which counts for double points, from the back of the grid as he is now the championship leader. This is going to make his qualifying and first race results in PE critical to his championship ambitions. In the Cape, Stephen took his usual methodical approach to the racing, opting to capitalise on opportunities

as they came up, instead of pushing hard and gambling on success. The reward for his patience was another strong performance, with a second overall finish for the day, and a valuable haul of points that has moved him to the top of the log. For Stephen’s team mate, Simon Moss (A38) the weekend was a decidedly tough one, but he is very happy with his race day. “It has been a difficult weekend,” says Moss. “I can take a lot of good from this event though. I was a lot quicker than at Zwartkops. I touched Johan Fourie in that first race and it affected my wheel alignment. I scrubbed half the rubber off the tyre on the fender and in the second race

my rear suspension broke – probably from an incident earlier in the race.” Moss never expected an easy ride as he moved into the top class of competition in the Bridgestone Production Car Championship, and is philosophical about the trials and tribulations that accompany his new motorsport category. He is, however, very optimistic about the next event in Port Elizabeth. This is where he has done his testing in the run-up to the season, it is where he has spent the most time with multiple champion, Stephen, in preparation for the year ahead and he knows he has good pace at Aldo Scribante Raceway. There is a good chance that he will

produce one of his best performances, if not his best, of the 2014 season in front of his home crowd. A good result at home could see him prepared for an equally good performance at the East London round in July, the third of three consecutive coastal rounds for the Super Series competitors. Look out for the Engen Xtreme team at Aldo Scribante Raceway on Saturday, 3 May, when they contest round three of the 2014 Bridgestone Production Car Championship in Port Elizabeth. The competition in this category gets more exciting with every passing event and a nail-biting performance is expected from these racers as they fight for points in the Friendly City.

He has run the Comrades Marathon ten times, and this year he completed his 21st consecutive Argus Cycle Tour. At the age of 79, Johnny van Wyk has the medals and good health that go with being a life-long sports fanatic. In his youth he swam for Transvaal and Western Transvaal and played water polo as well. He was always athletic, and ran the Comrades each year from 1977 to 1986 until he got his green number. After working in the engineering division of the mines in Klerksdorp, he and his wife Norma, a former nursing sister, retired to Plettenberg Bay where they lived for 12 years. They then moved to Pearly Beach for 10 years, and have been living in Hermanus for the past two years. Johnny and Norma have been married for 56 years and live in Sandbaai. Johnny says it was his aim to complete 21 Argus Cycle Tours so he could get his permanent number. “It’s quite an achievement,” he says, “And although there were some challenges some years, I never missed once.” His first Argus was in 1994. His son Peter has completed the Argus ten times and father and son cycled together the past two years. Johnny says he will not cycle in the Argus again as training on the roads in and around Hermanus has become increasingly dangerous. He is satisfied that he has reached his goal and even though he will be 80 soon, he is not giving up cycling all together. Standing in his house is a brand new Twenty-Niner mountain bike for off-road cycling. He calls this huge new silver and white bike “The Beast”. Look out for him off the beaten track; he’s probably the really tall chap way in front of you.

Sandbaai resident Johnny van Wyk, who completed his 21st Argus Cycle Tour this year, on his favourite road bike.

RUTHIE – A SENSITIVE SOUL: Ruthie has spent nearly all of her young life at Hermanus Animal Welfare Society. When she came in as a puppy, HAWS did not know at the time that Ruthie is in fact a cross Greyhound which is a very sensitive breed. She is now nearly a year old and is finding it difficult to adapt. HAWS’s volunteer animal behaviourist will be willing to help Ruthie settle in. Call HAWS on 028 312 1281.

Die nuwe Junior kampioen is Demetri Liversage (68/79/147), met Liam Cloete (79/75/154) en Carel Garbers (77/77/154), die naaswenners.

Cruiser Thomas, having been let off his leash for a couple of weeks, foolishly overdid things the previous night and had to stop after 9 for “medical” reasons. He left the door open for Pat of the Bushveld to be made a fool of.

The Epic was conquered The two local Masters athletes (over 40) Mathew Browne and Claude Tyers, Team Hermanus Toyota, were placed 80th in their age category and 279th overall out of 650 starting teams in last week’s 758 km ABSA Cape Epic MTB race. Mat and Claude Mathew Browne and spent a total of 47 hrs Hermanus Toyota. and 36 minutes in the saddle. Mathew, who has now completed his 6th Epic, says he was immensely proud to cycle alongside his ‘old cycling buddy’. “He cycled like a gladiator, enduring possibly the worst conditions in the 11 years of Epic history, including massive technical climbs, treacherous descents, mud, wind, heat and rain. In Robertson on Day 2, the conditions were so poor that Claude was forced to race most of this tough 101 km stage with only limited use of his gear system, and whilst many other athletes threw in the towel on that stage, he finished strong.”

“Our game plan was to start the race ultraconservatively over the first 4 days and if still feeling strong, we would crank up the pace and finish faster than we started over the second half of the race. This strategy seemed to work as we saw ourselves creeping slowly but Claude Tyres of Team surely up the category positions.” The duo dedicated their 2014 Epic experience to the loving memory of Elsie de Beer. “We started every day with a quick prayer and with the positive memory of our friend Elsie fresh in our minds. We attacked every adversity with renewed energy and positive spirit!” Mathew and Claude are very thankful to Johan van Zyl from Hermanus Toyota for their sponsorship. Next, Team Hermanus Toyota will be tackling the Sani to Sea 3 Day MTB race in May. “This race is all about support and we are especially grateful to our wives, our children and our friends who followed our Epic journey”.

CAPE EPIC PA EN SEUN: Wine Village eienaar Paul du Toit en sy seun Johannes het vanjaar aan die Absa Cape Epic deelgeneem. Paul moes ongelukkig op dag vyf weens mediese redes onttrek. “Johannes het op sy eie verder gery en die tog klaargemaak in ’n goeie tyd,” sê ma Cathy du Toit. “Omdat hulle nie as ’n span klaargemaak het nie, word Jo­ hannes se tyd nie in ag geneem nie, al het hy goed binne die af­ snytyd klaargemaak.”
