HEMEL­EN­AARDE VALLEY FARM ATTACK

Two of four suspects still at large JANINE VAN DER RIET “We as a farming community were aggrieved to hear about the farm attack last week,” said Danie van Zyl, chairperson of the Rural Safety Forum, on Tuesday. An elderly couple was tied up and robbed on their farm in the Hemelen-Aarde Valley on Wednesday 30 April at around 21:00. Their farm is near Haygrove Heaven. According to Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana, provincial commander of SAPS media communications, the 77-year-old man and his wife were watching TV in their house on the farm when four men entered by smashing a glass door. The men threatened the couple with a gun and knives and tied them up. After they ransacked the house, the four suspects fled the scene in the couple’s VW Polo, with cellphones, an undisclosed amount of cash and the elderly couple’s bank and pension cards. The couple managed to phone for help after the suspects left and the police were alerted. The suspects drove across a field to the Haygrove Road and then onto the R320. Just before La Vierge the suspects lost control of the vehicle and it rolled. Two of the men sustained serious injuries while the other two fled on foot up the mountain behind La Vierge. The two injured suspects, aged 23

and 30, were arrested and taken to hospital for medical treatment. The vehicle and one cellphone were recovered by the Hermanus Police. The other two suspects are armed and are still at large. Apart from being traumatised, the couple was fortunately not injured, Kinana confirmed. Van Zyl, who is also the vicechairman of Babilonstoring Agricultural Association, says this attack on the elderly couple is the first serious attack in seven years in the area. He says the valley has mostly been plagued by solar panel and copper theft, and house burglaries in recent years. Van Zyl says the focus of the Rural Safety Forum and Babilonstoring Agri Association is to try and be pro-active. “We encourage our members to be alert, report out of the ordinary activities, remove bushes next to roads for better visibility and to keep spotlights on at night at premises. Warrant officer Johan Matthee from the Hermanus Police, had contacted Van Zyl on the night of the incident to inform him of the house robbery. “I then SMSed several of the nearby neighbours to be on the alert and I sent emails to everyone in the valley who is on our list, but it is not sufficient. “Our biggest challenge is deficient communication. Cellphones

and emails are lame in such a situation. In the forum we’ve been trying to get a two-way radio system, including a repeater – which gives better reception – up and running for quite a while.” The forum held a meeting recently to discuss the implementation of a two-way radio system, three surveillance cameras at all three entrances into the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and other safety concerns. At that meeting it was decided to call together a large Safety Forum meeting, which will take place on 13 May at 18:30 at Newton Johnson Vineyards. “The purpose is to get more people involved and explain what we want to accomplish,” says Van Zyl. “There’s an apathy in the valley amongst the inhabitants regarding safety and security and we urgently need involvement from all inhabitants – young and old, employers and employees, to tackle this issue. We need to prevent anyone else being tied up or assaulted.” A Facebook group was established this week by AfriForum safety manager, Chris Nieuwoudt, and a resident in the Hemel-enAarde Valley, Gawie de Kock. On this page information will be posted of meetings to be held, rural sector emails with information and other information to keep residents posted on happenings in and around the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

Kind gered van gewisse waterdood ELBÉ VAN HEERDEN ’n Peuter het Saterdag die kloue van die dood net-net vrygespring toe ’n groep mense tot haar redding gekom het ná sy in ’n swembad geval het.

Jenni Sadie saam met die vyfjarige meisie ná Jenni haar lewe gered het toe sy in ’n swembad beland het.

Die vyfjarige meisie, wat na wat verneem word by haar familie in die Onrus Close-kompleks gekuier het, het saam met haar nefies gespeel toe die voorval plaasgevind het. Hulle het toegang verkry tot die kompleks se swembad waar die meisie in die water geval het. Jenni Sadie en ’n vriendin, wat albei in die kompleks woon, het by die venster uitgekyk en die kind in die swembad sien dryf. “Ek luister gewoonlik na die hekkie wat oop- en toegaan. As ’n lewensredder kyk ek altyd uit, maar dié dag het ek nie besef die kinders is alleen nie. “Toe my vriendin opstaan om te loop, het ons die kind in die water sien dryf en dadelik begin hardloop. Met ons aankoms by die swembad het ’n jong man, Malcolm Venter, wat vir die naweek by sy ouers gekuier het, reeds in die water gespring en haar uitgehaal.

“Thank you, God. My child could have been dead, but he is safe!” Magda Pieters of Fisherhaven said this after her son, Louis’ recent brush with death at the hands of Hawston locals. Louis was driving on the R43 past Hawston on his way to Stanford on Friday evening when people tried to stone his vehicle and fired shots at him. According to Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana, provincial spokesperson of SAPS, the incident took place after an abalone bust in Hawston. While police members were still busy loading the confiscated abalone, community members stoned the SAPS members and tried to block the R43 road and also burnt tyres. “At about 23:35, police in Hermanus seized a significant amount of abalone. This followed an intelligence-driven operation in Hawston which led to the confiscations. With a search warrant they swooped down on the house situated in Chester Road where they found a 26-year-old woman inside the house with 68 bags of frozen abalone. After the abalone was defrosted it was counted to 6 941.” Pieters said while Louis was driving past Hawston from Fisherhaven, community members tried to form a circle around his car. “He realised he was in trouble after he also heard shots fired and decided to drive away as fast as he could.” He managed to get away unharmed, but the car’s back window was shattered. After a few hours, the “riot” in Hawston was under control and the road was safe for motorists. The 26-year-old woman was arrested and appeared in the Hermanus Magistrate Court this week on charges relating to possession of abalone. A docket of public violence was also opened for further investigation.

Firefighters Day celebrated with gusto ELBÉ VAN HEERDEN The motorcade of fire engines and rescue vehicles heading towards the CBD on Saturday was part of the International Firefighters Day, which is held on or close to the 4th of May, the day of Saint Florian, the patron Saint of Firefighters. The motorcade, representing municipalities in the Western Cape, started at the Zwelihle community hall and proceeded to the Old Harbour. In her address the Overstrand Mayor, Nicolette Botha-Guthrie, mentioned that fire fighting rates as the second most dangerous profession in the world. “These risks and sacrifices are accepted by these members as a norm of the profession, and today we celebrate the dedication, heroism and importance of firefighters. These brave men and women are grateful for each time they are able to save a life, prevent injury or a disaster. They also cherish the blessings of their guardian angels that enable them to return home safely after each shift or operation.” After the formalities, fire and rescue services demonstrated a number of their skills, while ten teams of four firefighters from around the Western Cape participated in a

team challenge to show their physical strengths and practical skills. Tasks included striking a tyre with a sledgehammer, rolling up a fire hose, putting up a ladder and climbing on top of a container and down again, and pulling a charged fire hose and striking a cone. The challenge was won by the Eden District Municipality, with Breede Valley and the City of Cape Town in second and third place.

Overstrand voters make their mark KERRY VAN RENSBURG Election fever was evident in the Overstrand on Wednesday 7 May as voters made their way to one of the 29 polling stations in the municipal area to cast their votes in South Africa’s 5th free and democratic national and provincial elections. With 49 660 registered voters in the Overstrand municipal area and voting stations stretching from Gansbaai to Betty’s Bay, the local IEC office and the 354 IEC staff manning the voting stations, had their work cut out for them. Overstrand Mayor Nicolette BothaGuthrie says she cast her vote at the Amana Conference Centre in Vermont at 07:00. While there she noticed that a couple who were not registered to vote at this specific voting station, were busy filling in forms so that they could do so, when a member of the IEC told them they had to go to the voting station they were registered at in order to vote. Botha-Guthrie says she brought the matter to the attention of the voting station’s presiding officer, and said the couple had a right to vote at any polling station provided they filled out the necessary document. The presiding officer took immediate action and rectified the situation. Two voters who also had to fill out documents because they were not registered to vote at the specific voting stations they went to, namely the De Wet Hall in Onrus and Hawston Secondary School, told the Hermanus Times that the process was quick and simple with no complications.

Botha-Guthrie, accompanied by Mike Walters, visited every voting station in the Overstrand during the course of the day. Things were running smoothly at the six voting stations which the Hermanus Times visited early Wednesday morning. By 12:00 the total number of votes that had been cast in the Overstrand stood at 20 185, which was 40,65% of the total number of registered voters in the municipality. The figures for each polling station were reported by the presiding officers to Anton

Coetsee, who was running the DA office in the Overstrand, and he said the figures “were reliable”. When voting stations closed at 21:00, the votes were counted at each election venue under the scrutiny of independent observers and party agents and the verified outcome for each venue publicly displayed. The ballot boxes were then sealed and transported to the IEC office where an independent auditor verified the results before sending them to the provincial and national IEC offices.

Eastwood Loftus Nel with his beloved dogs. He died on Friday, 2 May.

PHOTO: FACEBOOK

Legendary figure dies JANINE VAN DER RIET Eastwood Loftus Nel was well known as the man with the cute threesome of dachshunds in a box on the back of his motorbike. Nel suddenly passed away on Friday 2 May after he suffered a massive heart attack. His love for his animals was heart warming and he was a legendary figure in Hermanus, known to many, as is evident from the multitude of messages on his Facebook page after he passed away. The only time Castrol, Dot and Mossie were not in their “dog box” on the yellow BMW 650 GS motorbike, was when he delivered pizzas for a restaurant in the CBD. Any other time, the dogs would join him on his journeys between his home in Onrus and town. Their leashes acted as safety belts when they hit the road. Nel was born on 11 September, 1954 in Worcester. He grew up in the area and later married Tertia Chambers in 1974, after they had been school sweethearts since grade 8. The couple had four children – Daniel, Thomas and twins Henk and Frans. After Nel and Tertia divorced, Nel moved to Hermanus in 2002. His biggest love besides his dogs and motorbikes was music – anything from Santana to Eric Clapton. His son Thomas says there was always music playing in their house. Friends and family are all worried about the future of his three beloved dogs. Unfortunately, Mossie was put down on Monday, as his close friend explained this was Nel’s wish, that Mossie had to go with him when the time came. Castrol and Dot are currently in foster care and are hoping to be adopted by a family permanently. According to a friend of Nel, the dogs are not doing well as they are longing for their owner. “A family with people at home most of the day will be a good forever home for these two.” Ilze Smith from the Hermanus Animal Welfare Society can be contacted on 082 856 8391. A celebration of Nel’s life will be held at 10:30 on Saturday, 10 May at the Hermanus Bikers Club at 7C Roman Close. Call Andrew on 079 884 0376 for more information. A get together in memory of Eastwood will also take place at 10:30 on 17 May, at 17 Duiker Street in Vermont.

LEFT BEHIND: Roxy is the darker, small­medium cross breed who came to HAWS with her mate over eight months ago. The bigger dog was adopted, leaving Roxy behind and she is still patiently waiting for some­ one to give her a home – especially now that she is on the last chance list. Roxy is a very sociable and cat­ friendly girl. Contact HAWS on 028 312 1281 or 076 963 2092.

Be part of the Reforest Fest at Platbos forest New trees will be planted in the ancient Platbos Forest, between Gansbaai and Stanford, during Greenpop’s fourth annual Reforest Fest, which will be held over two weekends in May (10/11 and 17/18 May). Greenpop’s reforestation efforts over the previous three years have led to the planting of over 8 000 trees native to Platbos, which is South Africa’s southernmost indigenous forest. This year Greenpop aims to plant a further 8 000 trees. Greenpop is a social enterprise that believes greening and sustainable living can be fun, popular and accessible for all. Like many natural forests around the world, parts of Platbos have been cleared over the past decades for cultivation. Today, many of these cleared areas

are being taken over by dense invasive alien vegetation, which pose a serious fire risk to the forest. In response to this issue, Melissa and Francois Krige of Platbos have launched the Trees for Tomorrow reforestation programme. Through this, endemic seeds are harvested from the forest, reared in the Platbos Forest Tree Nursery and then replanted to expand the forest. It’s important to plant these endemic trees because they are adapted to drought and serve as a food source for the bird and animal species relying on the Platbos ecosystem. Due to the popularity of the Reforest Fest, it is happening twice. A family fest from 9 to 11 May is suitable for families of all ages and will feature varied educational activities for kids, teens and adults. Some of these activities include hula hooping, forest walks, yoga and tree meditation, interactive musical sessions

and instrument making, and arts and crafts. The second weekend is a friends fest from 16 to 18 May. It will have more of an upbeat dancing festival /forest party atmosphere on the Saturday evening. (Assess the suitability of this in regard to the age of children.) The Sunday after will offer more of a restful vibe, with varied activities, again including forest walks, yoga and meditation. Tickets for the event are R590 (R390 for children under 12), which includes camping, all meals, great music, tools, fun activities and trees for the reforestation effort. For bookings of six or more, the cheapest ticket will be free. Book tickets at www.webtickets.co.za. Companies and individuals who would like to sponsor trees for the festival can email marleen@greenpop.org

Dying to see a doctor too EDITORIAL COMMENT This week we are Proudly Overstrand With the fifth national elections taking place this week, we celebrated being Proudly SA, but at least two recent happenings also gives us reason to be Proudly Overstrand. The past week saw local residents selflessly save a five year old child who could have drowned had they not reacted quickly. They did everything they could to save someone else’s daughter. On the same day, municipalities from around the Western Cape gathered in the Overstrand to celebrate the selfless work done by our firefighters, even when resources and staff are at times below the usual requirements. All these men and women and the hundreds of locals who came out to support them on Firefighters Day make us Proudly Overstrand. Each of us, in one way or another, can help create a better and brighter future for all.

Graag sluit ek aan by die Engelse opskrif van Dorothy Smith se brief in Hermanus Times van 1 Mei 2014. Met my skrywe wil ek Dorothy se brief 100% rugsteun. Wat ek wil byvoeg is lêers wat wegraak, bloeduitslae wat wegraak, voorskrifte wat wegraak, en die algemene hantering van pasiënte met ernstige gesondheidsprobleme. Ek is self ’n hartpasiënt (met stent), chroniese hoë bloeddruk en ook ’n diabeet. Veel gaan ek nie uitwei nie want dan sal die Times dalk meer as twee bladsye aan my moet afstaan. Ek gaan alreeds vir ongeveer vyf jaar deur al hierdie dinge en het onlangs besluit genoeg is genoeg. Ek is tans besig om ’n brief te skryf aan die hospitaal superintendent met die hoop om verbeterde resultate te kry. Ek is sopas deur ongeveer agt weke van hel met my hart maar my situasie is volgens drokter nie ernstig genoeg gewees vir ’n spesialis-ondersoek nie.

My probleme het begin die nag van 11 Februarie 2014, en ek het eers op 4 April ’n afspraak by ’n dokter gekry, nadat ek nie nee vir ’n antwoord wou neem nie. Sewe weke later. Die manier waarop die dokter die ondersoek hanteer het, het ook veel te wense oorgelaat en was volgens my baie onprofessioneel gedoen. My vraag: Wat as daar iets ernstig verkeerd gegaan het? Dan was dit maar net nog ’n sterfgeval ... en geen haan sou daarna gekraai het nie! Hiermee sluit ek af: Ek sou graag meer wou uitpak in hierdie skrywe maar wou net vir Dorothy ondersteun in haar brief. Ek versoek egter dat die publiek wat worstel met staat mediese sorg, wat hulle voel aan swak dienslewering grens, om my en Dorothy se voorbeeld te volg en jul klagtes te lug. Dalk verkry ons resultate daardeur.

Hierdie ‘kultuurvraat’ sê baie dankie Vir sowat 2 jaar woon ons nou in Hermanus. Met klipswaar-harte het ons Kleinmond gegroet ná 14 baie gelukkige jare en redelik katvoet in Sandbaai tuisgekom. Een van die baie pluspunte vir ons hier, is die wyse waarop kultuurvrate soos ons gevoed word. Instansies soos OAK en die organiseerders van Hermanus FynArts verdien net die hoogste lof. Ons word in staat gestel om hoogstaande produksies, veral op musiekgebied, by te woon sonder om “oor die berg” te gaan. So-

doende word ons brandstofgeldjies vir anderdag gebêre en ons kan in rustigheid in ons eie dorp hierdie sielsverkwikkinge indrink. Die Overberg Eisteddfod skep vir ons jeug ’n verhoog en die Kalfiefees bied weer sy eie vreugdes. Ek bewonder mense wat, meestal sonder finansiële vergoeding, al hierdie dinge organiseer en in stand hou. Hulle verdien beslis ons dankbare ondersteuning.

Desperately seeking affordable accommodation

Be kind to receptionists I am an educated woman with a degree who works as a receptionist in town. It amazes me how some people treat someone who works as a receptionist. Women especially will address you as poplap (which is condescending); they shout at you over the phone if they can’t have their way, they tell you how to do your job and then, my personal favourite, “I will take my business elsewhere!” I am shaking in my boots, lady. Not! Usually it is the receptionist who is to blame. The fact that many don’t bother to make appointments, or stick to them, does not play a role. The fact that the receptionist cannot wave a magic wand to make their dreams come true seems to be a problem. Now, I would like to say to all of you who take your pent-up anger, bad manners etc. out on the receptionist – luckily for you most of us have a very good upbringing and education, otherwise we would put you in your place. Maybe this is where the problem lies – it is more difficult to be kind, than to be mean.

It is with a heavy heart that I write this letter today. Desperately seeking decent accommodation in Hermanus without paying an arm and a leg is becoming impossible. The very few options there are on line and in the paper are either too small or way too expensive for decent couples that earn a very basic salary. What are we to do? Browsing on line you will find pages full of holiday accommodation for tourists and visitors, catering for them maybe once or twice a year? What about the permanent residents of Hermanus? The people who live here all year round, work here and have to make a living, why not take them into consideration? In the 7 years that I have been a permanent resident here I have viewed lots of properties and let me tell you, some of those apartments were just plain shocking, with a hefty rental fee. Yes, Hermanus is expanding but we are still a close-knit community that is supposed to look

out for each other, right? Or am I just being naive? If I was ever lucky enough to be in that position of being able to rent out a property of my own to tenants, I would do it at a very reasonable price. Why? Because I care about people and giving them decent, affordable accommodation would make me happy. I am writing this letter to try and reach out to home/apartment owners who have vacant properties. I am sure, like myself and my husband, there are many couples out there who are also desperately seeking good affordable accommodation. Please open your hearts and homes to us – the members of this community trying to make a living here but unfortunately not financially able like many residents here. Thank you.

Werk saam met FynArts, eerder as kla Na aanleiding van A. van Niekerk se brief oor FynArts en Mary Faure se antwoord daarop, net hierdie stuiwer in die beurs. Allereers: In my jare as voorsitter van die Hermanus-Kalfiefees het ons gesorg dat daar minstens een Engelse stuk van waarde vir Engelssprekendes op die program is. En sowat 98 persent van die bywoners was Afrikaans! Dikwels het ek gewonder of ons regtig weet waarvan die Engelssprekendes hou. Miskien moet ons ’n bietjie brûe bou. Hermanus se Afrikaanse kunsliefhebbers is nogal bederf in die sin dat hulle die uiters suksesvolle Woordfees op hul voorstoep het, asook die KKNK, waar hulle die beste van die bestes in alle genres beleef. ’n Mens kan nie verwag dat Mary en haar span, wat uiteraard nie so gereeld hierdie feeste bywoon nie, die jongste neigings in Afrikaner-kunskringe sal

ken nie – soos dat die meeste van ons ons neuse vir Afrikaanse flieks optrek! Met sekere uitsonderings natuurlik. Pleks van kla, moet ons Afrikaners liewer inspring en Mary probeer help. Ons sit hier met drie van die land se voorste dramaturge, Deon Opperman, Pieter Fourie en Rachelle Greeff, asook ’n duisternis skrywers, uitgewers, musiekkenners en ’n handvol akteurs en aktrises. Mary en haar span het in ’n kort tydjie wondere verrig en as ons Afrikaners afgeskeep voel, is dit ons skuld dat ons nie aanbied om saam te werk nie. Ek weet persoonlik dat sy verlede jaar haar beste probeer het om uit te reik na Afrikaners wat kan help. So, mnr. of mev.Van Niekerk, waarom begin u nie om ons ou klomp lui en bedorwe Afrikaners op te roep tot diens nie!

CAS VAN RENSBURG ONRUSRIVIER

Dankie AfriForum, vir nuttige noodhulpkursus Ek spreek hiermee my waardering uit vir die AfriForum-ledevergadering van 29 April in Kleinmond, asook vir al die sprekers wat ons daar toegespreek het. ’n Groot dankie ook vir die noodhulpkursus wat AfriForum op 23 April gratis aangebied het. Op 30 April het dié kursus my handig te pas gekom in my koffiewinkel. ’n Dame van 82 het in die winkel geval. Ons het haar dadelik gemaklik gemaak sodat sy nie aan skok sou ly nie en die ambulansdiens was binne 20 minute op die toneel. Sy het haar regter-onderbeen net bokant die enkel gebreek. Nogmaals dankie vir die insiggewende vergadering asook die noodhulpkursus.

ANDRÉ VAN DER MERWE KLEINMOND

Nevermaaind die taal, FynArts is wonderlik Ons woon in een van die mooiste dorpe in die wêreld! Ons het OAK, U3A, Hermanus musiekvereniging wat vir ons so baie bied. Maar nes dit mos met ons so goed gaan, dan doen ons dit... ons vind iets om oor te mor. Ja, ons klim sommer op die ou moeggeryde taalwa. Verlede jaar, toe ons gereed maak vir die koue, nat Overbergse winter, bring Mary Faure vir ons Hermanus FynArts – ’n fees van klank en kos en kyk. By al die plesiere nog wyn ook. Maar nou ja, ons moet kla. So kla die briefskrywer in die Hermanus Times van 1 Mei dat daar nie genoeg Afrikaans by FynArts is nie. Ag nee man, dis nie ’n taalfees nie. Dis presies wat die naam sê: ’n fees van fyn kuns. As jy in Afrikaans wil fees, wikkel oor die berg Woordfees toe. Kry koers Kalfiefees toe. Sprankel in ons gewilde Sprokkelsterteater. Maar ek vra jou mooi, moenie Hermanus FynArts, ’n fees van fyn kuns, misloop nie.

Firefighters honoured Overstrand Fire and Rescue hosted the regional International Firefighters Day celebrations on 3 May. This is a time when the world’s community can recognise and honour the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day when current and past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions. Various other emergency services were also represented including Fire and Rescue, Metro Emergency, private ambulance services, Working on Fire, NSRI and SAAF. One of the participating regional fire chiefs described the event as “a wow moment”, and it truly was. From start to finish the parade, demonstrations and team challenges had the crowd on their feet. The crowd was invited to observe the capabilities of our emergency services with great professionalism and precision. All of this was awarded by the delivery and handing over of the newest addition to the Overstrand Fire and Rescue squad, a brand new special built fire engine. I am convinced that I speak on behalf of all those present on Saturday when I congratulate the Overstrand (especially the fire and rescue department) on a very successful event. To all emergency services of the Overstrand, South Africa and all over the world… we salute you.

It is very unfair and selfish and being observed by many people. It will only be a matter of time before you are publicly humiliated. ) Die persoon wat ons kat op 1 Mei in Kerkstraat doodgery het, kon ten minste gestop en gevra het wie se kat dit is. Sies vir jou!– KG ) The Overstrand is fortunate to have many in­ spired individuals who have initiated wonderful events that have huge benefits for the whole region. Specifically the whole team behind the MTB trails and land owners allowing the trails need to be given huge accolades for what they have achieved in recent years for promoting our area. ) Well done Tamzyn of Just Pure. A special menu that conforms to the Banting diet, as Prof. Tim Noakes’ new healthy approach to eating is known. The dishes created are imaginative with not a glim­ mer of guilt. Thank you. – DORIS PIENAAR ) Graag wil ek my waardering uitspreek teenoor ’n werknemer in die winkel by die Engen vulstasie in Sandbaai vir haar eerlikheid. Op 31 April het ek geld getrek by die OTM in die winkel en onwe­ tend ’n R100­noot laat val. Ek het eers later my verlies agtergekom en by navraag op 1 Mei het die bestuurder my meegedeel dat ’n werknemer dit by haar ingehandig het. Dit is ’n riem onder die hart om te weet dat sulke eerlike mense nog bestaan. My opregte dank aan die persoon. – HENTIE LOMBARD, SANDBAAI trots op jou nie. Jy het baie mense gewys jy kan en sal – maak nie saak wat jou omstandighede was nie, “you rose above your circumstances”. Jy, Moesie, Dot en Castrol sal altyd in my hart bly en ek is verskriklik lief vir julle. As ek my oë toemaak sien ek julle drie op die motorfiets en so sal ek julle onthou.

Rode Consult’s appeal against the Sandbaai mall proposal also highlights its attractions With reference to the article The Hermanus Business Chamber resolves to fight for CBD in the HT 17/04/2014: I have studied the appeal document to Anton Bredell as drawn up by Rode Consult, and would like to comment on their second ground for appeal: ) “The proposed mall is at an intercept position for the vast majority of local and regional traffic.” This must mean it is convenient to the majority of Greater Hermanus residents. ) “The location of the mall is in the centre of retail purchasing power.” It can therefore not be in a better place. ) “The mall will offer free parking.” How about that for meeting one of the major needs of the consumer? The biggest problem in the CBD is free parking – and parking, period. ) “A climate-controlled one-stop shopping facility.” Hallelujah, actually considering the needs and comfort of the consumer. ) “Leading retailers will close their CBD stores at the first opportunity.” To me it sounds as if the HBC does not consider the CBD to be the best location for retailers. What will probably happen is that new retailers not represented in Hermanus CBD will take up all the available anchor space in the mall and the town retailers will have to stay put.

) “The national supermarket and clothing anchor tenants will depart the CBD for the mall.” Of course they will if they can – marketing-orientated retailers tend to take their business to the consumer, and not inconvenience them by forcing them to come to them. Conclusion These are all strong marketing arguments for a mall in Sandbaai. – You can’t be all things to all people; you need to segregate your market. – You need to identify your market clearly, and be able to communicate with it. – You need to identify your target customers’ needs and wants, and meet these fully at a price they can pay. – You need to fish where the fish are. – Things will change and you need to change accordingly. If you try dictate to your consumer about your products you will fail. Today one needs to be a consumer-orientated marketer to be successful and survive. There is no need for the CBD to be threatened by a suburban shopping mall if they clearly identify their target market and the target market’s needs. They need to design their product to meet these needs, and fully service their target market.

PROF DA DICKENS SANDBAAI

NATURE MATTERS DID YOU KNOW: There are four different types of plants that make up fynbos: the various protea species, ericas or heaths, bulbous plants and, most definitively, the restios or Cape reeds. If there are no restios to be seen, it’s not fynbos. For example, there are no natural restios in the Hermanus cliff path vegetation and it’s thus classified as coastal scrub, rather than fynbos. The restios are often mistakenly called grasses, but they differ from grasses in that they have no leaves and the stems are solid, not hollow. Male and female flowers are borne on separate plants. Fernkloof Nature Reserve has about 50 different species of restios. Thamnochortus pellucidus or “dwergriet” (female de­ picted) grows on the lower border of Fernkloof. It is classified as vulnerable and is threatened by urban expansion and habitat destruction.....PHOTO: ANINA LEE

While we wait for the results of the election, we can all take out our raincoats as we look forward to a wet weekend. The rain will start shortly after 17:00 this afternoon (Thursday) and continue until Saturday evening. More than 17 mm is expected and by Monday it will clear but very cold.

Hou maar die reënjasse byderhand Een koue front op die ander wat van Antarktika vertrek het, het hulle op 5° Wes in ’n lugleemte bevind en die meeste van hul vog wat van die Atlantiese hoogdruk verkry is, in die see uitgestort. Dit moet ’n lot reën wees wat suidoos van Gough geval het. Maar vandag is die verkiesing verby en die weer hergroepeer en is weer normaal onderweg winter toe. Met so ’n bolug wat nie bra met weervoorspellers wil saamwerk nie, is dit nogal kopkrap. Weerhaan het amper lus en sê dit sal “elders mooi weer en warm wees met ’n sterk wind iewers”. Ek hoor Langfaan giggel. Hy sê altoos as die weer so is, mis hy Riaan Cruywagen en Haas Das se nuuskas van destyds, toe mense nog vir die weer kon lag. Die weer is deesdae nie grappies nie. Vreemde dinge woeker in die bolug en gerugte daaroor word gefluister, wat mense al hoe meer uit ou Vader Henog van 2 000 jaar gelede se skrywe aan sy seun Metusaleg herinner, al kan hulle dit nie mooi begryp nie. Hoe ook al; lyk dit of die Overberg die ergste geskommel misloop. Een faktor wat Weerhaan raaksien is die groot verskil in vrugte- en olyf oeste in die verskillende Wes-Kaapse landboustreke. Hier hang bome vol olywe en daar op plase digby is misoeste. Wat opval is dat die hoogdrukke weer besonder laag suid beweeg en dat die meeste vog wat opge-

neem word verlore gaan. Die dragtige wolke raak uit pas en word nie warm genoeg om hoog genoeg te styg voordat dit vir reën kan afkoel nie. Wat die Indiese hoogdruk betref, lyk dit op die oog af normaal want vog sirkuleer hierdie tyd van die jaar baie diep suidoos in die rigting van Australasië en dek die tafel vir minder neerslae in die winter. En met die Atlantiese hoogdruk se streke, lyk dinge nie reg vir ’n normale Wes-Kaapse winter reënseisoen nie. Op die kort termyn, wyl ons wag om te hoor wie die nuwe staatspresident is, kan ons die reënjasse uithaal want die komende naweek se ekstra geldjie uit besoekers is sopnat. ’n Laagdruk oor die Weskus raap al die rafels van die front op, swaai dit oor die weskus en kort ná 5 vanaand gooi hy dit terug. Ons kan tot 17 mm voor Saterdagaand verwag. Teen Maandag is dit bitter koud. Dan kry ons droë weer tot 13 Mei.

Jazz and Tango at FynArts 6 – 16 June 2014: The last day for Hermanus FynArts early-bird bookings is Sunday 11 May. Memories and Songs This jazz concert with internationally acclaimed jazz musician Selaelo Selota (guitar), Gally Ngoveni (bass) and Sipho Malinga (drums), is one of the exciting musical highlights of Hermanus FynArts. The concert will be staged in Zwelihle (Lukhanyo Primary School Hall) on Saturday 7 June at 14:00. Selota grew up in a rural village near Polokwane. In 1985 he found work in the gold mines. Life among migrant mine workers introduced him to the traditional songs and dances of many other Southern African tribal groups. After three years, he left the mines and started working at the Market Theatre as an usher and later as a cleaner at a jazz club, which exposed him to professional musicians. He bought his first gui-

tar and began studying music theory through FUBA (Federated Union of Black Artists Academy). He graduatedin 1997 from UCT with a Jazz degree, majoring in Jazz Composition and Arrangement. 2014 Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz: Kyle Shepherd Trio with Kyle (piano); Shane Cooper (double bass) and Jonno Sweetman (drums) This magnificent musical dialogue has enthralled audiences across South Africa, Switzerland and China. They will perform at the Overstrand Auditorium on Thursday 12 June at 19:20. Band leader, 26-year old Shepherd, is highly regarded as one of South Africa’s leading progressive Jazz pianists and composers of his generation. Shane Cooper was the 2013 Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz. As a composer Shane has written music for a number of awardwinning documentaries and films

NUWE SANDERO: 900CC TURBO­ENJIN

Taai klein kragbron verras

JOHAN MOUTON

Toe die eerste Sandero ’n paar jaar gelede op die mark gekom het, het dit gou heelwat aanhangers op sleeptou gehad – die prys was reg, die krag (tog effe flou) en spasie voldoende, maar nie so lig op brandstof soos sommige van sy mededingers nie. Nou het Renault die Sandero heeltemal verfris met ’n nuwe voorkoms en ’n nuwe enjin – ’n 900 cm³ turbo. Suid-Afrika is een van die eerste lande waar die nuwe Renault Sandero op die mark is. Na die sukses van die vorige Sandero en onlangs die nuwe Renault Duster, het die maatskappy besluit om gou die nuwe Sandero na die vertoonvensters in SuidAfrka te bring en dit ten volle gemonteer ingevoer. Voertuie wat minder as R150 000 kos maak 21% van die passasiersmotormark uit. Die nuwe Sandero is nou regtig ’n mooi voertuig en is op die platvorm van die nuutste Clio ontwikkel. Die duurder van die twee opsies het ook misligte voor in die buffer. Voor het dit groot hoofligte en ’n breë sierrooster met die prominente Renault-kenteken wat in die middel pryk. Die agterligte is kleiner, meer vierkantig en is laer geplaas en van agter lyk die Sandero breër en platter. Die materiaal wat binne in die kar gebruik word het ’n tasbare gevoel van gehalte. Die sitplekke is stewig en gee goeie ondersteuning. Die instrumentepaneel lyk netjies en modern met ’n sagte, duursame gevoel. Die Sandero is toegerus met meeste van die luukshede en toerusting wat mens in duurder mo-

Die duursame stoffering wat binne­in die kar gebruik word skep ’n gevoel van gehalte. delle sal verwag. Die groot verandering is die nuwe enjin. Die vorige model het ’n 1 400 (55kW, 112 Nm) enjin of 1 600 (64kW, 128Nm) enjin gehad, maar die nuwe een het ’n 900 enjin en ’n turbo-aanjaer, wat 66 kW en 135 Nm ontwikkel, dus meer as wat enige van die vorige twee enjins ontwikkel. Verder is die enjintoere waarteen maksimum wringkrag ontwikkel word 2 500 r/min teenoor die 3 000 r/min van die vorige enjins: 90% van die wringkrag is al teen 2 000 r/min beskikbaar en die

Sandero voel op die pad in alle omstandighede sterker. Jy kan gerieflik die Sandero op die lang pad neem en heerlik teen normale togsnelhede ry met nog voldoende krag om stadiger voertuie verby te gaan. Omdat die Sandero die enigste kar in sy klas is wat met ’n turbo-enjin toegerus is, gee dit hom die voordeel dat die dun lug van die Hoëveld die werkverrigting nie so veel benadeel nie. Ander sterkpunte van die klein 900 cm³ turbo-enjin is laer brandstofverbruik en minder skadelike

uitlaatgasse. (Die Sandero is vrygestel van CO² belasting). Die Sandero is het 15” wiele en is toegerus met 185x65R15 bande. Die rit en hantering is goed en baie gemaklik en ongelykhede op die pad word maklik geabsorbeer. Dit het ’n vyf-spoed ratkas wat nou nie die gladste is wat ek al teëgekom het nie, maar dit is steeds heel aanvaarbaar. Die Sandero beskik oor ’n hele aantal veiligheids kenmerke, meer as enige van ander klein motors in sy prysklas. Die standaard ABS en

EBD is die nuwe Sandero ook toegerus met EBA (noodremhulp) stabiliteitsbeheer, vastrapbeheer en opdraand-wegtrekbeheer. Daar is twee weergawes van die Sandero luikrug om van te kies: die intreevlak Expression en die meer luukse Dynamique. Van buite is daar min verskil en meganies is die twee dieselfde, maar van buite kan die duurder Dynamique aan sy allooiwiele, gekleurde buitespieëls , deurhandvatsels en misligte uit geken word. Binne is die belangrikste verskille spoedbeheer, elektriese buitespieëls en elektriese ruite aan al vier deure (Expression: net voor). Die Dynamique het vier lugsakke waar die Expression net twee het. Die Sandero vergelyk baie goed met die ander fabrikate in sy prysklas op die mark in Suid-Afrika soos die VW Polo Vivo, Ford Figo en Toyota Etios. Waar die vorige Sandero bilik geprys was t.o.v. sy mededingers, was dit swaarder op brandstof. Die nuwe Sandero met sy 900cm² turbo-enjin is nog steeds billik, maar nou het dit beter verbruik as die ander fabrikate en het selfs nog meer krag. Al is sy enjin die kleinste, is sy krag nou van dieselfde orde as die res. Dan is daar nog luukshede soos lugreëling, elektriese vensters voor, radio met CD en MP3 (slegs standaard in die Figo) en ’n sentrale sluitstelsel met afstandbeheer wat nie (of as ’n ekstra opsie) by die ander ingesluit is nie. Die Sandero kom met ’n vyfjaar of 150 000km waarborg en ’n tweejaar of 30 000km diensplan en daar is twee opsies om van te kies, naamlik die Expression, teen R133 900 , en die Dynamique teen R141 500.

pact sports car, which achieved iconic status when the very first generation debuted as a coupé in 1998. It impressed with its 2+2 seating and variable luggage compartment, and set the standard for its technology: potent downsized turbo engines, quattro allwheel drive for the high-end models and six-speed S tronic, which debuted in the model series in 2003. The second generation, which followed in 2006/2007, marked the first time Audi that reversed the weight spiral. The ASF (Audi Space Frame) body, made predominately of aluminum, made the new version up to 90 kilograms lighter than the previous model, giving strong performance with very low fuel consumption. The Audi TTS Coupé competition is available exclusively in the special paint finishes Imola Yellow or Nimbus Grey, and its exterior calling card is

Paired with the six-speed S tronic, it accelerates the Coupé from 0 to 100 km/h in 5,3 seconds. Average fuel consumption is 7,7 litres per 100 kilometres and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5,5 seconds; quattro permanent all-wheel drive delivers the power to the road, and the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. The Impulse leather package in steel grey dominates the interior of the TTS competition and uses characteristic leather bands as decorative elements. Their cut edges are dyed Imola yellow, and this same shade of yellow is used for the contrasting stitching. Aluminum badges on the door trims embossed with “1 of 500” further accentuate the exclusivity of the special edition model. There are no options available for the limited edition Audi TTS Coupé competition and all features, from xenon-plus headlights to aluminium inlays , are available as standard equipment in this exciting new model and make this package an extremely competitive offer for the motoring enthusiast looking for exclusivity.

The new Yaris embraces Toyota’s contempo­ rary design language with a full­width up­ per grille that extends into new triangular headlamps. PHOTO: QUICKPIC

Toyota’s new­look Yaris QUICKPIC Toyota’s upgraded Yaris will embark on a new era when it is released onto the South African market during the second half of this year. The images released today reveal a model which delivers greater emotional appeal by sporting Toyota’s signature front-end design, imbuing the newcomer with a more contemporary “family look” evident in cars like the Auris, Corolla and the all-new Aygo (not due in SA before 2015). The new Yaris embraces Toyota’s contemporary design language with a fullwidth upper grille that extends into new triangular headlamps. It also incorporates a deeper front bumper with a large trapezoidal lower intake, which is a key element of Toyota’s design theme that is being introduced progressively across the range. The upgrade also brings revised rear styling including new tail lamps as well as a raft of under-the-skin and interior mods – details will be released closer to the launch. The range of powertrains is unchanged, with a 1.0 and 1.33 F petrol engine as well as Toyota’s flagship full hybrid system on offer.

Hyundai unveils its smaller ix25 concept SUV

QUICKPIC

Hyundai has unveiled an ix25 concept model at the 2014 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition as an appetiser for the launch of such a sophisticated small-sized SUV – another strategic pillar for Hyundai Motor in the world’s largest auto market – exclusively in China later this year. The ix25 concept hints at a premium look, based on Hyundai Motor’s evolved Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy. Harmony between a bold front, voluminous side, sporty rear and other details complete the premium small-sized SUV’s design. Equipped with a Nu 2.0 engine, the ix25 concept features an overall length of 4 270 mm, overall width of 1 780 mm and overall height of 1 630 mm, while its wheelbase reaches 2 590 mm. “Hyundai Motor has grown into a leading

automaker in China through continuous innovation and we are now poised for a new challenge to become the most loved brand by Chinese customers,” said Hyundai Motor president, Sung Kee Choi. “We will now prepare for another successful decade in China through the launch of high-quality models such as the ix25 SUV, which is strategicallydeveloped for China, and the all-new Genesis.” The ix25 will mainly target the young generation who seek style and practicality at the same time, and Hyundai Motor is planning various marketing activities to attract them. With its launch in the second half of this year, Hyundai Motor expects to complete its competitive SUV line-up in China, from ix25, ix35, Santa Fe to Grand Santa Fe, aiming to secure the leading position in the country’s rapidly growing SUV market. The “i” in ix25 represents the “inspiring, intelligent and innovative” characteristics of the young generation.

Eco road show to reach 30 schools Whale Coast Conservation (WCC) is on the road again. Over the next two weeks learners from all 30 schools on WCC’s Eco-Schools programme will visit the Sustainable Future Road Show and have fun while learning. The 10 exhibits that form part of the show demonstrate how one can live sustainably and save money as well. The show will go to Gansbaai, Stanford, Hermanus, Zwelihle, Hawston and Kleinmond. Funding for the road show comes from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund. During the course of each show day groups of 80 learners from different schools will arrive every hour. Through interesting, interactive exhibits, they will learn they can help to protect the valuable services we get from natural ecosystems at no cost to themselves.

Demonstrations include: how to generate electricity by wave, wind and solar energy instead of using coal; how one can save electricity – and money; how one can save money on waste removal by recycling and reusing scarce materials; how important fresh, clean water is to our survival and how to use that water sparingly. Parents and the public are invited to come along from 15:00 to 16:00 on each show day to see what the children are learning. There will be valuable tips and interesting facts to explore. Entrance is free. Show dates: Tuesday 13 May – Gansbaai Primary; Wednesday 14 May – Zwelihle Primary; Friday 16 May – Hermanus High; Tuesday 20 May – Stanford Community Hall; Friday 23 May – Hawston Community Hall; Tuesday 27 May – Kleinmond Community Hall.

The Hermanus Hacking Group (HHG) held their fifth annual general meeting on 1 April and Charlyn Vosloo presented her annual chairperson’s report. The objectives of the HHG include: • The eradication of Port Jacksons and other invasive alien plants within the boundaries of Hermanus. • Promotion and conservation of the natural heritage of Cape fynbos in the Overstrand municipal area. • Creating awareness among residents of the extent of invasive alien plant infestation endangering our natural heritage, and working towards the building of attitudes of the public and the private sector to shoulder the responsibility of eradicating invasive alien plants in Hermanus. • Employment of workers to assist voluntary members of HHG with the eradication of alien plants, thereby creating temporary job opportunities for unemployed people and the development of unskilled workers. • Employment of an administrative officer for secretarial and other administrative duties and a manager to oversee the workers during additional hacking sessions. • Acquisition of tools and chemicals as necessary for eradication of invasive alien plants. • Formulation and attainment of work standards. • Removal of plant material which has been exposed to poisoning in order to prevent secondary poisoning of the veld. • Improving paths along areas where hacking had been done. • Helping with the prevention of erosion in the mountain. • Raising funds as a non-profit organisation to attain these objectives. Vosloo says: “Looking back on more than five years of hacking, we realise this has been, and still is, an arduous task. Our work has mainly been limited to the boundaries of the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. We have been approached by an owner at Lagoon Edge to help with the eradication of invasive aliens, mainly Port Jacksons, but also pines and myrtle. On Thursday 27 March a pilot removal for four hours was done by five of our workers to enable

the management to assess the feasibility of the project and the extent of funds required. HHG had been awarded the work to eradicate all invasive aliens which the manager of the housing development, Deon Snyman, identifies.” Vosloo says another request has come from Edelweiss du Plessis, club captain of Hermanus Golf Club. The HHG was asked to do an inspection of their two wetlands areas with a view to giving a quote. However, minimal infestation was found and follow-up inspection will occur later on in the year. 1.1.1 Northcliff Vosloo says maintenance work ceased in the Northcliff mountain region for most of 2013/2014 but recommenced on 14 March 2014. The work is being expanded for three hours onTuesdaysandWednesdays,withamanager, André van den Berg, overseeing a group of approximately six workers. “When funds improve and more volunteers become involved, specifically on these days, a larger team of workers can be considered. The workers are appointed for the day’s work on a first come first served basis.” At Hoy’s Koppie and adjacent areas, manageable Port Jacksons were taken out over a period of four weeks. The large Rooikrans, Virgillia divaricat, and blue gums were too advanced in size and required expert removal by chemical means. This was conducted by the municipality during the latter part of 2013. “We have supporters in the community congratulating us on the diversity of fynbos, especially along Mountain View Drive, which was very badly infested seven years ago, and diversity limited,” says Vosloo in her report. She says they have 40 workers on their register and about 20 pitch up each week. They work alongside the volunteers eradicating the alien plants using tools especially designed for the task. Vosloo thanked Woolworths and Fruit and Veg for the food they provided for the HHG workers during the 2013/2014 financial year, as well as the many supporters who keep the initiative going. To contribute to the HHG, call Charlyn Vosloo on 082 558 8731. Banking details: Hermanus Hacking Group; Nedbank; Bank code: 198765; Account number: 1345057709.

Atlantic C (28) vs Rangers C (14) Die C-span het een van sy beste wedstryde gespeel. Die span het van die afskop met die bal gehardloop en sodoende vier drieë gedruk om vyf bonuspunte te verdien. Die puntemakers was Conway Sauls met een drie, Rursvel Pretorius met een drie, Stephno Swarts met een drie, Jerome Krotz met een drie, Junaide Molfert met ’n doelskop en strafskop en Barry Jansen met ’n doelskop. Atlantic B (17) vs Rangers

B (11) Die B-span is steeds onoorwonne. Herschel Vermaak was die groot uitblinker met ’n drie, ’n strafskop en ’n doelskop. Goodman Mbabane het een drie en Romeo Stevens het een doelskop aangeteken. Atlantic A (12) vs Rangers A (14) Die A-span se wedstryd was hard en vinnig. Rangers het met sy swaar pak en wind van agter die eerste helfte oorheers en die enigste oorstoot-drie behaal. Evan Visser het vier strafskoppe behaal. Atlantic se kaptein het met ’n verkeerde besluit, naamlik om nie pale toe te skop nie, Atlantic die onderspit laat delf om met 12-14 te verloor. ) Atlantic speel Saterdag tuis teen Villiersdorp en ’n goeie vertoning word verwag.

Hermanus Golf Club round­up This week we saw a little preview of winter as on Tuesday our ladies were rained out and blown away, so, no results. The sun, however, shone for the men on Wednesday, who played for the Rotary Shield. This trophy was first presented to the golf club in 1949 by the Rotary Club of Hermanus. Our popular winners of the betterball medal were Tony Behagg and Peter Sulley with a tremendous nett 58. They were, however, closely followed on nett 59 by Peter Bennett and Duncan Fletcher.

an cricket side did not dull Duncan’s golfing skills either!) Conditions were near perfect so we had ten 2-clubs and ball pool paid to 62. Saturday saw a near full field of 119 players. The betterball bogey plus victors were Tony Squires and Frans Prins on a super +14, and just behind them on +13 were Brian Taylor and a returning to form Gerrie du Plooy (what a Sterling performance!). There were five 2-clubs and ball pool paid to +9. Have a great week and see you all at the golf club.

Hermanus bowlers beaten on home greens The 31st round of the annual bowling duel between Hermanus and Helderberg Bowling Clubs on Thursday 1 May proved to be a disaster for the Hermanus teams. The 13 Helderberg teams out-played and out-manoeuvred the majority of the Hermanus

teams on their home turf at the Hermanus Bowling Club. Although a few of the local teams won all three of their games, it did not affect the overall total for the day. The final score was Helderberg 457 and Hermanus 387. – Chrissie van Wyk

Karatekas reg vir Japan Studente van Kaapstad het Donderdag 1 Mei ’n spesiale oefensessie op Onrusstrand gehou ter voorbereiding van hul besoek aan Japan gedurende September. Hulle is deel van ’n kulturele groep wat gekies is vir skakeling

Real Attackers beat Salim United On Sunday 4 May, in a strong drizzle, Real Attackers beat Salim United Football Club in a league match. The final score was 1-0. Real Attackers managed to score in the final moments of the match and the winning goal was scored by Abongile Mafevuka, a striker from Qhayiya Secondary School. Last year he was awarded for his achievements in scoring goals for the school. He is now replicating his good form for his new team, Real Attackers.

Although Salim United, which is a renowned Hermanus soccer club from Mount Pleasant, played a very aggressive and tough match in pouring rain, Abongile, known as Jijo by his fellow team members and currently in Grade 11, managed to clinch the match under pressure and bring victory to his team. Salim United had three attempts at goal but once again their attempt was obstructed by another Qhayiya Secondary School player, Kwanda Bokolo. He is in Grade 12. – Mogamat Kamedien

met Japannese studente, asook om hul gradering vir swart gordels te ondergaan. “Die oefensessie het baie goed verloop en die karatekas het behoorlik gesweet,” het Shihan Francois du Plessis, afrigter van die karatekas, gesê.

Die oefensessie was drie uur lank en het bestaan uit fiksheid, karatetegnieke en -toepassing, asook sielkundige voorbereiding. Saam met ander karatekas sal hierdie groep weer later vanjaar ’n finale oefenkamp van drie dae op Onrus bywoon.
