Twee veg nog om hul lewe

Twee mense van Stanford veg tans in die hospitaal vir hul lewe nadat die Opel Corsa­bakkie waarin hulle Sondagoggend na Her­ manus onderweg was, op sy sy te lande gekom het ná die bestuurder beheer oor die voertuig verloor het. ’n Vier­en­twintigjarige man van Milnerton, wat danksy sy goeie werk na Hermanus gebring is om personeel by ’n nuwe restaurant op te lei, is in die on­ geluk dood.

OFF­DUTY INCIDENT: VICTIM IN SERIOUS, BUT STABLE CONDITION

Officer shot by colleague

JANINE VAN DER RIET

A shooting incident that left a local traffic officer in serious condition in hospital, has been described as a freak accident. The officer, 30-year-old Slim Makhi from the Overstrand Traffic Department, was shot in the stom-

ach by a colleague when the latter apparently tried to enable his weapon’s safety mechanism before locking it away. Apparently both men were on leave when they decided to get together at the colleague’s house in Zwelihle on Tuesday afternoon. This is where the incident occurred at around 16:00, according to

Lt Fadila September of the Hermanus Police. September says the officer who fired the shot is very traumatised and has since been sent for counselling. As a case of attempted murder is currently being investigated by the Hermanus Police, the colleague’s name cannot be published, prior to

a court appearance. “Police and ambulance officials were quickly on the scene and took the injured man to Mediclinic Hermanus,” says September. “He was then transferred to the Hermanus Provincial Hospital and from there taken to Worcester Hospital by ambulance, because of the seriousness of his injuries.”

According to Jo-Anne Otto, spokesperson for Western Cape Government Health, Makhi underwent surgery on Tuesday evening in the Worcester Hospital. “He is currently in a serious, but stable condition,” Otto said on Wednesday afternoon. The municipality declined to comment on the incident.

Forestry in Grabouw under threat ANNETTE THERON The livelihoods of 6 000 people in Grabouw are under threat if intervention in the forestry industry does not occur soon. According to a memorandum compiled by the Grabouw Deforestation Crisis Campaign, the Grabouw Development Forum and the local ratepayers association, some 12 000 people are currently employed in forestry in the Western Cape. Of these, half are estimated to live in Theewaterskloof. At present harvesting but no replanting of trees is taking place. This is due to Cabinet decommissioning 45 000 hectares of “uneconomical” state commercial timber plantations in the province in 2001. It included all of Theewaters-kloof’s plantations. But six years after a Cabinet decision to reverse some of the plantations’ decommissioning, which was already signed in 2008 and could save the local industry, it still has not been implemented by the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF). If not finalised soon, sawmills are under threat of operations being terminated in 2020 due to timber supplies running dry.

The memorandum, which was handed to Mayor Chris Punt on 21 May, containing some 2 000 signatures, reads as follows: “Grabouw’s 100-year-old forestry industry will be terminated through bureaucratic bungling if replanting of our pine trees cannot begin within the next 18 months.” It argues that Grabouw’s unemployment rate will skyrocket. “Since the implementation of the Forestry Exit Strategy in 2001, there has been a steady shedding of jobs in the forestry sector which has exacerbated our local unemployment problem. Skills are being lost to the industry as employees are facing retrenchment and early retirement. Next year the Cape Pine sawmill in Stellenbosch will close as there are no longer enough big logs available from Grabouw, which will cause further unhappiness and, no doubt, further labour unrest.” Alex Roe, chairperson of the Grabouw Ratepayers Association says Grabouw is one of the towns affected in multiple ways. “Grabouw is a delicate eco-system with regards to unemployment and jobs and aesthetics. We rely heavily on tourism and if we suddenly lose our trees, it will have a great impact on tourism.” Further benefits of keeping the industry

running are the upkeep of roads and firebreaks, the retention of fire-fighting abilities in the area and the subsequent protection of fynbos. Production of Radiata Pine, amongst the best quality pine in the world, will also be lost. “We are now importing inferior pine from elsewhere when we could be using our own product,” says Roe. In an appeal to former deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe’s office after an election campaign visit to Grabouw earlier this year, role players pleaded with him to help. “Each year that passes, erodes away the possibility of a complete return to forestry and the reemployment of those employees lost to this industry. We therefore humbly request that you urgently intervene in whatever way possible and put pressure on the relevant department to plot a way forward.” Stiffie Cronjé, spokesperson for Theewaterskloof Municipality, confirmed receipt of the memorandum. He says to obtain clarity about the issue, meetings were already held between concerned locals, the mayor, Cape Pine and DAFF. Municipal manager Stan Wallace also raised the issue at a recent meeting between the municipality and sector departments. “The heads of the departments of Economic Affairs and Envi-

ronmental Affairs and Planning offered to assist with dealing with the matter on a national level.” The establishment of facts, the historical background and implications of the current situation, and a way forward have already been taken to relevant departments, he added. Senior officials will meet “as soon as possible” to obtain a commitment from DAFF to advertise tenders. “The municipality will use all avenues to consult with the relevant authorities to address the issue,” Cronjé said. Businessman Pieter Silberbauer, also a member of the Grabouw Development Forum, says, “If we can reverse the Exit Policy, Grabouw can become a growth point for forestry in the Western Cape and can be a place of job creation and skills development. These are permanent jobs, with scope for promotion throughout the country because forestry is a national organisation; it is not town-specific. Tragically it is too late to save Cape Pine sawmill in Stellenbosch because we no longer have the big logs to supply the sawmill. It is not too late to start a small log sawmill, which could prevent further job loss and could in fact result in many spinoffs that could create work.”

Owls may be snatching our cats JANINE VAN DER RIET Where do all the cats disappear to? Ingrid Green from Sandbaai thinks it could be the resident owls in the area that are responsible for the disappearance of so many cats and kittens in the past few months in Sandbaai. She says she had a horrific experience recently when an owl flew, from a building 10 m away, right down to her feet where one of her two cats were sitting. It was after dark, at around 18:00 and she could not properly see what kind of owl it was. “There have been many owls living in and around our complex in Bergsig Street for the past few months and we hear them almost every night.” Green says her cats have been acting strangely for a while now, as if they are scared to go outside without the proper “supervision”, while they usually do their own thing in their own time. “I was absolutely horrified when the owl went straight for my feet and my cat! I have no words to describe the feeling I experienced. And my poor cats. The one cat was further away and not in immediate danger, but my poor cat sitting close to my feet was in utter shock.” Since the incident, she has been researching owls, their be-

haviours and habits on line. She has spoken to some experts, and the owls in her neighbourhood could either be the Cape eagle owl or a spotted eagle owl. Even though it is difficult to believe that an owl can grab and "kidnap” a cat, she has learnt that some owls indeed see cats as prey. Rob Fryer from Whale Coast Conservation says after hearing Green’s story, it sounds as though there may very well be either spotted eagle owls or the more scarce Cape eagle owls in the area. “If the owls are preying on cats, then it is more likely that the birds are Cape eagle owls, which are slightly larger and are known to prey on dassies. Large owls have also been seen at night in the Vermont area, but I’ve not been able to get a good enough view of them to distinguish which variety these are. Either of these large owl species may take small or juvenile pets if they get the opportunity, so it is best to keep small pets – less then 4,5 kg in weight – indoors after dusk when the owls are scouting for prey.” Fryer says there are also Gymnogenes breeding in the area, which are known to have taken grey squirrels in Cape Town, but are unlikely, however, to take fully grown cats.

BIRD ID: Barbara Gentil sent in this photo, taken in On­ rus, of a bird that has been seen around. “Can any­ one help with the identification of this bird? I’m pretty cer­ tain it’s a buzzard, but is it a non­mi­ gratory steppe or a forest buzzard? He has been around for a few months now and calls constantly.” BirdLife Overberg says that it is an immature African harrier­hawk (Gymnogene) or kaal­ wangvalk. PHOTO: BARBARA GENTIL

Drie botsings naby Stanford, ster­werknemer sterf JANINE VAN DER RIET Drie ongelukke tussen Sondag en Maandag op die R43 naby Stanford het die lewe van een man geëis en talle beseerdes is per ambulans na die Hermanus-hospitaal gebring. Die ongeluk waarin Mathew Speelman (24) op slag dood is, het Sondagoggend omstreeks 08:40 op die R43 by die Kleinrivierbrug net buite Stanford plaasgevind toe die bestuurder van ’n Corsa-bakkie beheer oor die voertuig verloor het. Volgens ao. Sarena Hugo van die Stanford-polisie het die bestuurder in ’n verklaring gesê dat sy beheer verloor het weens die sterk wind wat gewaai het. Die voertuig het aan die ander kant van die pad in die sloot op sy linkersy beland. Speelman is op die toneel dood verklaar. Ses vroue is ook met verskeie beserings na die Hermanus-hospitaal gebring. Die sewe insittendes was almal besig met opleiding by ’n nuwe restaurant, Simply Asia, wat binnekort in die Carriages-sentrum open. Hulle was Sondagoggend onder-

wegna die restaurant in Hermanus toe die ongeluk gebeur het. Volgens Michael Cruywagen, een van die bestuurders by Simply Asia, werk Speelman al jare vir die Simply Asia-groep. Hy is van Milnerton buite Kaapstad na Hermanus gebring sodat hy kon help om ander werknemers op te lei en ook hand by te sit met die oopmaak van die nuwe tak. Weens dié tragedie en ander probleme is dié restaurant nog nie seker wanneer hulle amptelik hul deure vir die publiek gaan open nie. Volgens Cruywagen hoop hulle om ondanks die tragedie tog binnekort oop te maak. Die begrafnisreëlings was teen druktyd nog nie bekend nie. Twee van die insittendes, Bridget Mesias en Cameron Lottering van Stanford, is steeds in ’n kritieke toestand in die Worcester-hospitaal terwyl die ander reeds uit die hospitaal ontslaan is. Hugo sê lede van die polisie en paramedici was “ongelooflik” op die toneel. “Baie van die lede was nie eens op bystand nie, maar toe hulle van die ongeluk hoor, het hulle dadelik na die toneel gehaas en gehelp vashou, aangee, oplig of net troos. Dit was

Public Protector to mediate ELBÉ VAN HEERDEN Following the news that all abalone quotas have not been reissued for the coming year, a complaint has been lodged with the Public Protector, Adv Thuli Madonsela, with a request that she mediate in this matter. According to Kgalalelo Masibi, spokesperson for the Public Protector, their office received a complaint regarding the issue on 30 May. “The divers only have until the end of July before their quotas expire. The Public Protector will deal with the case as an early resolution matter with a view to assisting the parties to settle the matter by 15 July 2014,” Masibi said in a statement. According to Masibi the Public Protector will mediate the matter between the divers and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF). The complaint follows an interview with former minister of DAFF, Tina Joemat-Pettersen, stating that all quotas will be revoked as of the end of July. (Die Burger, May 2014). In the meantime it has become apparent that DAFF is behind on

the reissuing of permanent quotas and that the legal divers, of which there are 303 countrywide, will lose their quotas on 1 August. According to Shaheen Moolla, managing director of Feike, a Cape Town-based natural resources advisory firm, all quotas will be null and void on 1 August as the reissuing of quotas has not been completed. “Rather than admit failure on their (DAFF’s) part, they are trying to solve the problem by revoking all of the quota holders’ rights.” This urged local quota holders to send an urgent request to the Public Protector asking for intervention in the situation. The request reads: “We accordingly request the urgent intervention of the Public Protector as our rights to earn a legitimate income from the harvesting of abalone, which rights have been in place for the past 10 years and may almost certainly now be unlawfully terminated by 31 July 2014.” Of the 303 quota holders, about 250 reside in the greater Overstrand region.

baie mooi dat almal saamstaan in dié hartseertyd.” Sondag skuins ná 17:30 is nog ’n ongeluk op die R43, net buite Stanford in Gansbaai se rigting, aangemeld. Die bestuurder het beheer verloor oor sy VW Polo en in ’n sloot langs die pad beland. Die bestuurder is deur die Stanford-polisie in hegtenis geneem weens ’n klagte van moontlike dronkbestuur. Niemand is in die voorval beseer nie. Maandagoggend is die derde ongeluk aangemeld op die R43 naby Vark-se-Snoet. Die ongeluk het om 10:45 gebeur toe die bestuurder van ’n Isuzu-bakkie agterin ’n vragmotor, wat besig was om regs by ’n plaaspad in te draai, vasgery het. Die insittendes van albei voertuie is met ligte beserings per ambulans na die hospitaal vervoer. Volgens Hugo kon die gure reënweer, wat tot swak sig op die pad gelei het, vermoedelik die ongeluk veroorsaak het. Hugo sê mense moet versigtig wees, veral in gure weer. Die pad het ook nie ’n skouer nie, dus moet bestuurders geduldig wees met ander padverbruikers.

Let it hail, let it hail, let it hail JANINE VAN DER RIET Icy and somewhat unusual weather conditions last week made residents reach for their coats, blankets and cameras. Hail storms last Thursday took many by surprise, and white lawns and cute little snowmen (hailmen?)

were recorded on camera as evidence of the occurrence. No serious weather-related incidents were reported, however. The Overstrand Municipality’s control room reports that since the start of the cold front on Wednesday evening 4 June, it was fairly quiet with no evacuations needed in lower parts like Zwelihle.

Annalize Loubser from the Royal Gardener’s Nursery next to Die Plaaskombuis in the Hemel-enAarde Valley says, however, that the wind and hail storms caused some damage to their nursery. Sections of Main Road and High Street in Hermanus were also flooded. Here’s a selection of some of our readers’ most impressive photos.

Eers die sterk wind en toe ’n paar dae later die hael. “Die wind het die een skadunetstruktuur met ankers en al uit die grond ge­ ruk. Die hael het die ander net­ struktuur plek­plek tot op die grond laat hang. Al die pale staan nou skeef en hier en daar is ’n anker ook uit die grond gelig,” het Loub­ ser vertel.

Vandale teiken leë huis in Sandbaai JANINE VAN DER RIET

Sandbaaiers vrees dat leë persele in die omgewing ’n “geleentheid skep” vir misdadigers om te steel, en dat beleggers nie meer daar sal wil koop nie. ’n Bouval in Kusweg, waar eiendomme vir tussen R1,4 en R2,5 miljoen gewaardeer is, is die afgelope maande stuk-stuk gestroop tot ’n onooglike bouval. Graffiti teen die mure maak mense ook bekommerd dat lede van die berugte 26-tronkbende hier hul intrek geneem het. “Ons glo vas dat murasies en bouvalle in Sandbaai bende-aktiwiteite lok,” sê ’n lid van Stop Crime Before it Happens, ’n voorkomende buurtwaggroep in die Hermanus-area wat sosiale netwerke gebruik om inwoners in te lig. Ook Deon Beukes, voorsitter van die Sandbaai-belastingbetalersvereniging, sê inwoners is baie besorg. “Huise in Sandbaai wat leeg staan lok kriminele wat ’n geleentheid sien om in te breek en dan te steel wat ook al beskikbaar is.” Leegstaande huise en erwe wat oorgroei is met veral Port Jacksons, bied volgens hom ook skuiling vir mense om te slaap en weg te kruip. Chris Nieuwoudt, ondervoorsitter, sê sy grootste kommer is dat geen belegger meer in Sandbaai ’n vakansiehuis gaan koop as huise so afgetakel word nie. “Daar is nog drie huise in Sandbaai wat bouvallig is, halfgeboude huise waaroor ons baie bekommerd is, want ons wil nie hê kriminele moet daar intrek nie.” Volgens Beukes is die probleem herhaaldelik op wykskomiteevergaderings bespreek. “Gelukkig het ons ’n buurtwag wat gereeld die mense wegjaag en wetstoepassing in kennis stel, maar om dit te voorkom moet die Overstrand Munisipaliteit (OM) ernstiger en vinniger optree om te sorg dat eienaars nie hulle plekke verwaarloos nie. “Ons sal ook graag wil hê dat wetstoepassing gereeld Sandbaai besoek om te sorg dat daar nie geleenthede ontstaan vir kriminele om hulle hier tuis te maak nie.” Kol. Francois de Wet van die Hermanus-polisie sê hulle kry van tyd tot tyd klagtes van huisbraak en diefstal by vakansiehuise regoor die Overstrand, maar dat dit nie ’n groot probleem is indien eienaars maatreëls soos sekuriteitsmaatskappye gebruik om hul persele te beveilig nie. Hy het ook nie inwoners se vrese oor bende-aktiwiteite bevestig nie. Volgens hom is daar geen grondige bewyse dat die “besoekers” aan die huis in Sandbaai

Die huis by Kusweg 2 is stuk­stuk gestroop en party inwoners is van mening dat ’n bende dié huis as “hoofkantoor” bedryf.

Verder is die polisie se hande afgekap. “Ons patrolleer gereeld die area en spesifiek dié huis en kom soms op kwaaddoeners af, maar ons kan hulle net waarsku, en nie in hegtenis neem nie. Hulle kan nie vir betreding van pri-

vaat eiendom in hegtenis geneem word nie, want die eienaar moet self die saak open. Ook het die betreders geen gesteelde goedere in hul besit nie, dus is ons hande afgekap.” Die OM sit blykbaar ook met die hand in die hare oor dié eiendom. Raadslid Ben Solo-

The Overstrand municipal council recently approved the sale of land to the Department of Public Works, on behalf of the Department of Justice for the purpose of building a new municipal court. However, the new court could still be years from completion. The expropriation of the earmarked site (erf 11436) of about 4 527 m² – where the Hermanus Tennis and Squash Club currently operates – was approved in principle in 2011, but was revoked in council and earmarked for sale to the Department of Public Works. A condition of the sale is that it will have to be completed within six months. According to Lawrence Ngoveni from the Department of Justice and Correctional Services, the time frame for the commencement of a

mon het by navraag gesê die huis is sedert ’n paar jaar gelede gereeld onder die bou-afdeling se aandag gebring. “Die eienaar, wat in Engeland woon, het op elke aanmaningsbrief van die bou-afdeling onderneem om Suid-Afrika toe te kom om die probleem te hanteer, maar tot op datum het hy dit nog nie gedoen nie.” Die munisipaliteit het bevestig hulle oorweeg tans hul opsies om regstappe teen die eienaar van die huis te neem. Die eienaar kon nie vir kommentaar opgespoor word nie, maar na verneem word het hy al heinings om sy eiendom opgerig en die huis met staalrame probeer beveilig, maar ook dít is weggedra. Jaco van der Merwe, bestuurder by Seeff Hermanus, sê oor die algemeen word vakansiehuise in die Overstrand nie afgetakel nie en die huis in Sandbaai is ’n uitsondering. “Ons area oor die algemeen is baie veilig. So ’n eiendom doen baie skade aan sy omliggende bure. Dit doen afbreuk aan die standaard van die buurt en stuur die verkeerde boodskap uit aan besoekers en ook aan moontlike kopers. Dit kan indirek die waarde van die omliggende eiendomme negatief beïnvloed.” Sy raad aan vakansiehuis-eienaars is: “Beveilig jou huis met ’n alarmstelsel. Dit is ’n klein premie om te betaal vir groot gemoedsrus.”

project like this is at least three years as the department has to ensure that the funds are available, because it forms part of the national programme on infrastructure. The council has given the Department of Public Works only six months for the sale to be finalised. “It is the intention of this department to ensure that the Department of Public Works signs the deed of sale within the six month period as per section 3 of the Council resolution,” Ngoveni said. “However, should it be clear that the six month period will not be met, the department will request an extension of the time from the Council. “As per the condition stipulated in the minutes of the Mayoral Committee meeting, should the department fail to sign the deed of sale within the six month period, the municipality can alienate the prop-

erty by means of a competitive bidding process.” The future of the existing building is still uncertain, according to Ngoveni. “It will be discussed at a later stage and we are not in a position to comment on whether it will be made available to any other organ of state.” In the meantime, the Hermanus Tennis and Squash Club is eagerly awaiting the proposed sale as this could mean that the new facilities may soon be under way. The club president, Pieter Joubert, said they are very excited about the council’s decision to sell the land to the Department of Public Works with the intention of building a municipal court. “I’m also involved in the planning of the new sports complex and we can not wait to move. We have waited nearly ten years for this.”

De Voorskooten under new ownership KERRY VAN RENSBURG It’s been a week of new beginnings for Andrea and Wolf Schmidt, who moved to Hermanus last week and took over as the new owners of De Voorskooten restaurant as of 1 June. This German couple, who immigrated to South Africa five years ago, spent the past five years in Cape Town working for an internet-based customer service company. Back in Germany, Wolf had spent 25 years in the hospitality industry, including spells in France, and he wanted to go back into hospitality. So when they noticed on GumTree that De Voorskooten in Hermanus Main Road was for sale, they decided this was the business they had been looking for. Andrea says the restaurant, which seats 24 inside and up to 16 outside, is not too big, and they loved the food prepared by chef and part-owner Mariette van der Merwe. According to Jacques Fouché, who sold De Voorskooten to the Schmidts, Mariette has a 25% share in the business. Jacques, who has a construction business in Johannesburg, says after his son came home from school one day with a letter asking for help with food for parents who are struggling, he decided it was time to do something that makes a differ-

ence. “We are basically looking at a whole new job creation and empowerment initiative focusing on crafting and entrepreneurship,” he says. In March this year, De Voorskooten relocated from Aberdeen Street to the Fisherman’s Village in the CBD, which is regarded as the historical heart of Hermanus. This new venue is in keeping with De Voorskooten’s decor with its antique furniture and historically significant artwork in ornate gold frames. With the restaurant under new ownership, Mariette will continue to serve up the delicious and beautifully presented fare this elegant restaurant has become renowned for. Andrea, however, says they have some ideas of their own for the menu, but they will only add these items step by step. She says the menu offers food that everyone can enjoy and they don’t cater only for tourists, insisting that the local people come first. This classy, warm-hearted restaurant is ideal for a mug of steaming Glühwein and a tasty Cape curry or perhaps homemade fishcakes followed by something sweet and satisfying. De Voorskooten’s menu offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and is open from 11:00 to 15:00 and again between 18:00 and 22:00.

(Sowat 27 miljoen mense is vasgevang in slawerny, 800 000 word verhandel en een miljoen kinders word deur die internasionale kommersiële seksbedryf uitgebuit.) Operasie Mobilisasie gebruik alle geld wat hy insamel om op voetsoolvlak ’n verskil in slagoffers se lewe te maak. Een van sy bedienings, wat hoofsaaklik fokus op slawerny en die verhandeling van vroue en kinders, is The Freedom Climb. In Afrika fokus dié bediening hoofsaaklik op voorkoming en die bevryding en rehabilitasie van slagoffers. Met die Hermanus Top Chef-geleentheid wil die organiseerders Projek Hoop se doelstellings, naamlik bewusmaking, bediening en bekamping verder bekendstel. Bespreek dadelik jou span se tafel teen R150 per persoon. Elke span bestaan uit agt mense: twee kokke – wat die minimum ondervinding hoef te hê, twee tafeldekkers en vier ondersteuners. Elke span kry ’n tafel waarby hulle kuier en eet. Die kokke en tafeldekkers kom reeds 17:00 by die saal bymekaar waar hulle die geheime mandjie met bestanddele ontvang. Al die spanne kry dieselfde bestanddele. Tussen 17:00 en 18:00 kan elke span sy disse beplan: ’n voorgereg en ’n hoofgereg. Die tafeldekkers versier in hierdie tyd hul tafel volgens die landstema wat aan elke span toegedeel is. (Die disse hoef nie die landstema te weerspieël nie.) Die ondersteuners begin teen 18:00 aankom, wanneer die kokke hul slag sal wys. Teen 19:00 moet die kos gereed wees sodat die beoordelaars X gesoute Hermanus-kokkedore X kan proe en almal kan eet. Al wat jy benodig is kreatiwiteit, spangees, ’n gasstofie, ’n pot en pan, ’n spaan en tafelversierings. Borde, eetgerei, tafeldoeke en glase word voorsien. Kaartjies teen R150 per span is beskikbaar by Savannah-kafee. Vir meer besonderhede bel 072 244 0233 of e-pos feesvanhoop@gmail.com.

Great start for FynArts 2014 CILENE BEKKER

These works by leading sculptors, placed at seven sites along the cliff path from the Old Harbour to the Windsor Hotel, will be on display until March next year. Jaco Sieberhagen, one of the sculptors, was instrumental in the setting up of the exhibition, to the level of helping to drill holes to stabilize and secure the sculptures. Of the sunshine-blessed morning he said: “I am a child of the Karoo and there every day

we pray for rain. Today is one of the few times that I prayed for sunshine.” Cllr Ben Solomon, speaking on behalf of the Overstrand Municipality, said he believes this public art exhibition will attract tourists and can grow into something bigger. “But it takes someone to run with an idea like this and make it work. We, the municipality, can only help smooth the way.” Melvyn Minnaar (curator of the Wine Plus series during FynArts) said the exhibition has the potential to become as big a tourist attraction as the Public Art exhibition in Münster, Germany which attracts around 2,5 million visitors annually. The Sculpture on the Cliffs pieces are an eclectic mix of various techniques and materials and may not be to everyone’s taste. “That’s the point of public art. You don’t have to like it, and it shouldn’t be pretty, but

it must be engaging and make you think,” said Minnaar. This year’s FynArts by all accounts so far is double the size of last year. More tickets had been sold by opening day, and more entries had been received for competitions and exhibitions. One of the events in the past week where there were only single seats to be had in an otherwise packed out Hermanus High School hall, was the popular Songs of Praise, masterfully orchestrated by Richard Cock (now a FynArts board member). The programme included lively praise music performed by an 80-voice strong choir, an orchestra, solos by soprano Magdalene Minnaar (Christine in Phantom of the Opera) and Nick Nicolaidis (tenor), and much appreciated audience participation.

RESOUNDING SUCCESS: The Songs of Praise concert, held in the Hermanus High School hall on Sunday afternoon, included a mass choir of 80 choristers from all over the Overstrand, and an ad hoc orchestra (27 strong), all brought to perfect harmony by renowned conductor Richard Cock. Songs of Praise is a community project which Richard takes around the country. The primary aim of these concerts is to praise God through music. PHOTOS: KERRY VAN RENSBURG

Language lesson EDITORIAL COMMENT Be sensitive to the needs of others A freak accident can occur in the blink of an eye. On Tuesday afternoon a young traffic officer defied death after being accidentally shot when his colleague’s weapon fired unexpectedly. Another young man, however, was not so lucky. Twenty-four-year-old Mathew Speelman died in a car accident on Sunday morning on his way to a work-related training programme. Six women were travelling with him in the vehicle; two are in hospital in a serious condition. While this kind of “news” may help sell newspapers, we should never lose sight of the impact incidents and accidents like these have on our community. There are families standing at hospital bedsides and there are families who are grieving. When the newspaper has been discarded, those families are still picking up the pieces. We all know someone who is going through a tough time, be it a life-threatening illness, bereavement or financial difficulties. Offer support even if it’s only a shoulder to cry on. Be sensitive to what others are dealing with, because we never know when hardship and heartache may come our way.

Keep up complaints against ‘soulless boxes’ One can only heartily endorse the sentiments expressed by E. Burnside-Welsh regarding the proposed (but will it happen?) building in Long Street. Over the years, many, many well thought-out, intelligently written letters have made it quite clear that bunker/block style architecture is not welcome in Hermanus. Have the powers that be listened? NO. They never have and never will. The charming, elegant or whimsical is ruthlessly thrust aside for sterile, soulless boxes which squat like evil toads looming over our once desirable town, blocking out its renowned vistas. I think clowns would have better taste, and I don’t think the sub-committees are even secret, viz the blatant disregard for what is suitable and aesthetically pleasing. The hideous and most historically incorrect clumps are foisted rough-shod onto those of us with good taste and discernment. However futile, those who object, please continue sending your letters to Hermanus Times, if only for the comfort of knowing that one is not alone in one’s revulsion, anger and disappointment at what has, and will continue, to happen. Perhaps, hopefully, it might give those responsible a few uncomfortable moments just before they drift off to sleep in their well-upholstered beds.

Angels at Mediclinic I have just spent two weeks in the Hermanus Mediclinic – most of it in the Intensive Care Unit. I was amazed at the selfless dedication of the hospital and nursing staff and want to thank them on behalf of all patients who have been privileged to experience their special caring treatment. This Mediclinic is a well-run institution under the efficient management of Annemarie Nortje and her team, and deserves to be congratulated. I noticed during my stay that many nurses complained about sore backs or shoulders – of course from handling patients. We are so grateful and apologise most sincerely. All of them deserve special recognition. At the age of 62, this was a first for me: first hospital stay, first operation and first anaesthetics. I was admitted for a diagnostic gastroscopy and colonostomy to try and determine why my iron levels were critically low. I expected to return home afterwards – not stay for two weeks and face a life changing situation. During my stay in the ICU I was shocked by the acute reality level of life speeding by. The competent nursing staff handled every crisis with calm professionalism. My heart went out to the bereaved family of Enrico Spandiel, beloved resident of Stanford, who had to watch him pass away in the bed next to me after a cycling accident. In the bed on my other side, a man was admitted at the same time after a massive heart attack, and his family was also traumatised. Dr Tredoux handled both cases with admirable efficiency and professional empathy. That same night a lovely baby girl was born in the Hermanus Mediclinic, and I realised that this is a place where life and death happen simultaneously in the fast lane, and the people who have to deal with this on a daily basis are true angels. Another first for me was a blood transfusion and I wished I could thank the person who donated his/her blood (O negative type) for my benefit. It was a strange feeling lying flat on my back for six hours while some-one else’s life fluid slowly penetrated my body, to help me grow stronger. The Cat Scan was also an amazing experience and I felt as if I was in a UFO with the doughnut spinning at dizzying speed around my body, its lights flashing as the robot voice gave strict impersonal instructions on when to breathe and when to hold your breath. How unbelievably advanced our medical world has become! Every person who works in the Her-

I respond to an SMS published in Hermanus Times on 5 June 2014. I have several points to make regarding Anne Clark’s comments about the front page of Hermanus Times, presumably the edition of 29 May 2014. In the first place – you do not have to be a ratepayer to qualify to read the HT. Paying the cover price of R5,20 is more than enough qualification. There are many readers of the HT who are not ratepayers. The second point is this – if you are a South African and you cannot communicate in Afrikaans – shame on you. If you are an immigrant (who apparently owns property in South Africa), then perhaps this is a good time to learn Afrikaans. Thirdly, would you complain to the editors of Le Monde, Der Spiegel or Pravda for publishing in French, German or Russian if you lived in any of those countries? The Hermanus Times has always had a mixture of both English and Afrikaans and we get on quite nicely, thank you very much. Did you give any thought to the fact that there are nine other official languages in South Africa? You can be happy the paper isn’t in Xhosa, Venda, Sotho or Zulu! Just by the way, the edition of HT of 5 June 2014 has an all English front page. Finally – nice picture of the cloud that you submitted to the HT and published on the same day as your complaint. Welgedaan, mevrou!

Donations keep Recycle Swop Shop going

Alta Pretorius is retiring as CEO of the Hermanus Business Chamber with imme­ diate effect due to medical reasons. manus Mediclinic deserves an award, but I wish to give special recognition to Professional Nursing Sister Lynette Gloy who assisted so calmly and efficiently when part of my wound opened up after a coughing fit and the post-operational fluids started seeping out – a scary experience. Another angel who also deserves a special star is Professional Nursing Sister Annetjie Squires. She assisted in many ways above the call of duty, and helped to make the long nights shorter. Natasha was the star at ICU. Doctors Luyt, Coetzee, Scheepers and Tredoux were all brilliant and professional, as well as Megan, the sunny physiotherapist who had to be cruel to be kind while pummeling the phlegm out of my lungs with clever fingers like a cavalry of wild horses galloping over my chest. I have been diagnosed with a chronic lung condition and colon cancer and will have to go through chemotherapy once my wound complications have healed, but I am positive and confident that everything will go well, because there are angels in hospitals. Due to the deterioration of my health, I will unfortunately not be able to continue my work as CEO of the Hermanus Business Chamber, but the efficient executive committee under the leadership of Mervyn Milner will ensure that the chamber continues to grow from strength to strength. For any inquiries call Mervyn Milner at 082 558 8593.

Thank you to the private and public sector of Hermanus for your encouragement and support through donations to the Recycle Swop Shop. A sum of R2 195 was collected through a street collection on 31 May by individual contributors. Although we have not received official notification, we wish to thank the municipality for their commitment to funding of R10 000 recently announced in the Hermanus Times. This year is the 11th year of operation of this project that enables children to help themselves through recycling. More than 25 other similar projects are in independent operation throughout the country and growing. Thank you, Hermanus for providing the incubation and home to the “original” Recycle Swop Shop concept “hatched” in 2003.

After over five years of a very successful part- Marie Claire Day and nership at one of Rita van Wyk of The Hermanus’s Barefoot Cook. most welcoming venues, The Barefoot Cook, Rita has decided on a change of direction, and will soon take up her position with VW Rola in Hermanus, doing something completely different – selling cars! I am sure she will do that with as much enthusiasm and warmth as she welcomed all the patrons to The Barefoot Cook. We wish her luck with her exciting new job, and will miss her instant smile. Marie Claire has shut her popular restaurant for three months and is taking a rest. We will all be back in September, Marie Claire!

Councillors’ pay packets under scrutiny The mayor in her budget speech announced that the increase for councillors “for the current year amounts to 7 per cent”. My calculations, and as I had explained to the mayor personally, paint a different picture. Councillors’ remuneration approved in the previous budget, this time last year, amounted to R7 577 a month. The approved 2014/2015 budget provides for councillors’ remuneration cost of R8 516 a month. In my book, this amounts to an increase of 12,39 % year-onyear. I assume the reason for the difference in my interpretation and that of the mayor, is that the interim remuneration increase

awarded to council earlier this year, which was not included in the original budget, became the new norm for this year’s budget comparison. Even if we accept this philosophy, then councillors awarded themselves an increase of 12,6 % in the current year which was not budgeted for. I invite the mayor, the council and the budgeting committee to enlighten us as to how a 12 %+ increase year-on-year is justifiable against the background of the mayor’s opening remark: “We have experienced very difficult economic circumstances since 2009 and a clear message came from our pension-

staff complement are comparative year-onyear. The reason why an assumption of a 12,6% increase in the 2013/2014 year has been reached is due to the classification of costs as mentioned above. Up until 2012/2013 the cellphone allowances for councillors were included in the general budget for cellphone allowances, but reclassified from 2013/2014 as a separate item. Therefore, the comparison between 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 is not equiponderant and the conclusion drawn is incorrect. The cost increase in councillors’ remuneration from 2012/2013 to 2013/2014 is 5,25%, excluding the reclassification of the cellphone allowances. An increase of 7% has been budgeted for 2014/2015.

Wat in die huidige situasie belangrik is, is dat die wegloper van ’n warm sel agter Gough gedaal het en tans op 50° suid, met sy draai teen die klok, die meeste van die koue lug uit die suide in die rigting van Gough slinger. Ons weet dat die koue lug nie maklik warm water anderkant Gough kan duld nie en summier regs swenk in ons rigting. Die lae posisie van die klein warm sel domineer die waters suid van die land deurdat dit effens verhit. Dit befomfaai die vorming van wolke wat ons kan laat uitsien na ’n paar dae van lekker sonskyn. Die bietjie son kan dalk hier in die Overstrand tot Saterdagoggend aanhou. Die koue klou vandag nog tot so elfuur se kant aan die Overstrand en dalk verder tot by George. Dit is ongeveer dan wanneer die warm sel in die suidelike waters begin ontbind en koue lug weer nader aan 35° suid beweeg op die vlak waar die grootste deel van die Kaap geleë is. Dit is geen troos vir ons lesers nie om te sê dat die front wat Saterdag suidwes van die land sy beslag kry, die hele land sal raak met neerslae in Kaapland en oggendmistigheid (4 °C saans) in

die noorde van die land. Reisigers kan in die Vrystaat tot minus 4 °C verwag. Selfs in die snoesige Durban sal dit maar kners teen minder as 9 °C. Lesers vra soms hierdie tyd van die jaar hoe ons weer met die buiteland vergelyk en hieroor kan gesê word dat die somer vanjaar ook maar huiwer om Europa in te vaar. ’n Mens kan nie help om jammer te voel vir trekvoëls nie. Ook die bedreigde klein rooipootvalkies wat die hele pad van Indië af Suid-Afrika toe migreer, sal in die huidige klimaatsverandering seker maar besluiteloos wees en dalk soos party Stellenbosse swaels maak, en winter en somer bly waar hulle is as hul neste tog maar net onderdak kan vind. Einde van vandag se weerstorie is dat dit Saterdag tot Maandagoggend ’n goeie 15 mm oor die Overstrand kan reën; ’n bietjie bewolk Dinsdag en sonskyn van Woensdag af.

HERMANUS TOYOTA

Grand Opening

Toyota launches new facility On Thursday 5 June 2014 Her­ manus Toyota opened its new facilities at the dealership.

The glamorous event hosted 230 customers and several VIPs, including the Overstrand Executive Mayor, Nicolette Botha­Guthrie, Springbok, Stormers and Western Province utility backline player, Gio Aplon, Gavin Carstens from Carstens Construction, Calvyn Hamman, the Senior Vice President Marketing and Sales, and Leon Theron, the Head of Technical and Field Operations, Toyota SA Mo­ tors (Pty) Ltd. Guided tours through the new facil­ ities for new and used vehicles (Au­ tomark) showrooms, the Parts and Service departments, wash bay and service reception were offered. “Even though the local economy was under severe pressure the past few years, we are sure that Hermanus will continue to grow and offer inves­ tors in businesses exceptional value and return on investments made,”says Johan van Zyl, owner and Dealer Principal at Hermanus Toyota. “For this reason we undertook to build one of the best and technologi­ cally advanced Toyota dealerships in the Overberg region. “This decision asked for a multi­mil­ lion investment but I believe in Her­ manus and what it has to offer.” In his keynote address, Calvyn Hamman emphasised that Toyota SA’s strategy is to manufacture high quality vehicles at affordable prices. Furthermore, the dealer network will continue to support this business philosophy with excellent customer service with a smile. The highlight of the evening could be described as twofold: the number of guests who attended the grand opening ceremony and the Toyota SA Motors New Retail Concept trophy, which was handed over by Calvyn Hamman. PARTS DEPARTMENT Charles Malan, Parts Manager, qualified as a master in 2013 and has 25 years experience of Toyota Parts and Accessories. He says that Toyota SA’s Customer Service division pro­

vides parts and accessories at a sup­ ply rate beyond 95%. If the part is not in stock at the deal­ ership, the Toyota Distribution Centre (Johannesburg) supplies it to Her­ manus within 16 hours. Toyota Parts and Accessories carry a 12 month un­ limited warranty. VEHICLE SALES Johan de Kock, New and Used Ve­ hicle Sales Manager, has 13 years Toyota experience and is a “Knight” since 2004. He is ably assisted by four sales consultants of which two have “Knights” accreditation. Natasha Kruger, Manager Finance and Insurance, is a certified NCA agent, FAIS and FICA accredited. She is registered at the Financial Services Board as a representative. SERVICE CENTRE The 1100 square metres service centre features 10 work bays, each with an air line supplying air to the hand tools used. A pneumatic pump system feeds engine oil to every work bay where the oil is dispensed with an oil reel. An “Oilpro” management system ensures that the correct amount of en­ gine oil is used to fill the required quantity for each vehicle type. Fur­ thermore, the new generation RA­ VIOLO electro hydraulic lifts (import­ ed from Italy) were installed at each service bay. Two Toyota qualified technicians and a repair service assistant ensure that the best technical expertise is ap­ plied under the able guidance of Riaan Booyens, Chief Technician, who is a qualified “Master”. Riaan Fortuin (Service Manager) and Mary­ ka Sebonka are qualified “Master” Service Advisors. Charlene Vermeu­ len is the Service Receptionist. “The investment we have made with the new and upgraded dealership is proof of our commitment to Her­ manus, its residents and visitors,” says Van Zyl. “We are proud to be a part of this community and as the Toyota brand has always been synonymous with quality, reliability, durability and low cost of ownership, so are we synony­ mous with offering the best and most comprehensive service in town.”

Cutting the ribbon to the new showroom is Leon Theron (Toyota SA), Calvyn Hamman (Toyota SA), Johan van Zyl (Dealer Principal of Hermanus Toyota), and the executive mayor, Nicolette Botha­Guthrie.

14 Hermanus Times Rogue mountain bikers can be banned from events

Algemeen General

12 June, 2014

ELBÉ VAN HEERDEN Mountain bikers have been warned not to illegally enter any private property or farms while training, or they might be banned from all major mountain biking events. Although currently one of the fastest growing recreational sport categories in South Africa, the sport of mountain biking (MTB) is being threatened by the emerging negative trend of rogue riding. According to the director of FNB Wines2Whales (W2W) MTB events, Johan Kriegler, the exceptional growth of the sport has resulted in an increase in the number of MTB events as well as the building and opening of public MTB trails. Kriegler emphasises that although a costly exercise, MTB trail building and the maintenance thereof has proven to be a positive job creation opportunity, with a number of previously unemployed citizens finding a destiny in this

newly established market. Most MTB trails that are open to the public charge a daily or annual fee. Mountain bikers are required to own a permit, to ensure proper access control on public and privately owned properties. Jan van Schalkwyk from Euodia Cycles in Hermanus partnered with Deon Ferreira and Paul du Toit to form Hermanus Adventures four years ago, with the purpose of creating new mountain biking trails in the area. “In the past, mountain bikers would use district roads, but the sport has grown tremendously and as the need for more challenging routes arose, people started biking on private property, using dirt roads and jeep tracks without ever really having any formal permission,” says Van Schalkwyk. “We started building formal single track routes especially for mountain biking. “To do this, we make formal agreements with farmers to be able to use their land. The memorandum of un-

derstanding would then include where the route would be. “Only then would we be able to build a track on private land.” According to Van Schalkwyk, the problem with rogue riding in Hermanus is the access points, due to the route crossing not one or two farms, but 15 in total. “The trail can be accessed at various points, making it incredibly difficult to police.” Van Schalkwyk says another important aspect of the permit is that an indemnity form needs to be signed that declares the cyclist is able and capable of riding the trail, and safeguards the land owners, municipality and other role players from legal action if a rider were to be injured. “There are several signs along the way warning riders that they have to have a valid permit and wear a helmet at all times.” One of their most common problems with illegal riders is the breakdown of relationships with landowners. “A registered rider can be identified, but we have had a lot of

problems where farm owners refuse the continued use of trails because of abuse by rogue mountain bikers. “The second problem is that there is no indemnity for the landowner or biker if he does not have a permit. And thirdly, as a non-registered rider, you are crossing into private property, which is a criminal offence. “Not paying for a permit also means that we cannot continue to build and maintain the routes.” The decision was taken to ban rogue riders for at least three years from all MTB events in the Western Cape including the FNB W2W, ABSA Cape Epic, and MTB events organised by MTB Adventures, Stillwater Sport & Entertainment, Dirtopia and PPA. “It was the best solution to the problem and we are hoping this will motivate reluctant mountain bikers to get their permits,” adds Van Schalkwyk. “Mountain biking has become the new golf. Yet, you wouldn’t go onto a golf course and just start playing.

You would first make sure that you have paid your dues. Why would it be any different for mountain biking when you go riding on formal trails?” Permits are available at Euodia Cycles at the Hemel-en-Aarde Village for R40 per day, or R350 per year. An honesty box is available in case the shop is closed. Amarider will manage the disciplinary process of rogue riders and will inform the relevant event organisers once a rogue rider has been found to be guilty of frequent illegal riding on private property or public trails. Members of the larger and responsible MTB fraternity are encouraged to communicate and express their anti-rogue riding opinion by notifying Amarider of anyone involved in such rogue practices. Contact Amarider at 021 884 4547 or e-mail info@amarider.co.za. To see the variety of local routes available, as well as the prices of permits, visit www.hermanusadventures.co.za.

Brandbeskermingsvereniging op die been gebring

There are loads of clothes and interest­ ing things to buy at Cat’s Whiskers.

Cat’s Whiskers expands The Cat’s Whiskers, Kleinmond Animal Welfare Society’s second-hand shop, opened its new wing consisting of a second-hand book and art shop, on 6 June. The opening was attended by several volunteers and committee members. Apart from the new bookshop, the shop itself was also renovated. The Cat’s Whiskers is open on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Pay a visit and you might just find a good book or a nice big mug for coffee or hot chocolate. The shop depends on donations from the community, and all those white elephants in your cupboard may just end up being something special to somebody else. For those of you with My School Cards, KAWS is now a beneficiary as well. You can also vote for KAWS on www.charitysa.co.za. For more information contact kaws.media1@gmail.com.

Die grootste deel van die Overberg-distrik word nou bedien deur een Brandbeskermingsvereniging (BBV) wat pas gestig is. Ná maande van harde werk en insette van al die groot rolspelers is die distrikwye Groter Overberg BBV gevorm en geregistreer by die departement van landbou, bosbou en visserye (DAFF). Slegs die Hagelkraal en Napier BBV’s het nog nie aangesluit nie. Die totstandkoming van die distrikwye BBV was moontlik danksy navorsing, personeel en finansiering van die Verenigde Nasies (VN) se FynbosFire-projek, wat by dié organisasie se Global Environmental Facility inskakel. Brandbeskermingsverenigings se doel is om ooreenkomstig Suid-Afrikaanse wetgewing hulp te verleen aan grondeienaars met die voorspelling, voorkoming, bestuur en blus van veldbrande. Al dié verantwoordelikhede is volgens wet die grondeienaar s’n. Die Groter Overberg BBV gee dus raad en bystand aan al sy lede deur die ontwikkeling en implementering van ’n veldbrandbestuurstrategie en gee hulp waar moontlik met brandbestryding, voorbereiding van brandstroke, brandstoflading-vermindering en beheerde brande.

Die gebied wat onder die bestuur van die nuwe BBV val. Die BBV is nie ’n brandbestrydingdiens nie, maar sal help deur die fasilitering van beter kommunikasie, opleiding en huur van die Working on Fire-spanne en lugbrandbestryding-hulpbronne. Verder sal die BBV die bewustheid van die risiko en gevare van veldbrande uitlig deur bewusmakingsveldtogte, toegang tot inligting en verspreiding van die daaglikse voorspellings van die brandgevaar-indeks. Die Groter Overberg BBV bied ook lede die wetlike sekerheid dat in die geval

van ’n siviele geding teen hulle vir die skade wat deur ’n veldbrand veroorsaak is, hulle nie nalatig geag word nie soos uiteengesit in die Wet op Nasionale Velden Bosbrande van 1998 (NVFFA). Vir beter bestuur en om beter voorsiening te maak vir gebiede met verskillende brandbestuursbehoeftes, is die Groter Overberg BBV verdeel in kleiner Brandbestuurseenhede (FMU). Hierdie FMU’s sal waar toepaslik soortgelyke gebiede dek soos die ou BBV’s of die landbouverenigings. Die Groter Overberg BBV het die FynbosFire-nuusbrief asook

BBV-kommunikasie aan al sy lede per e-pos aangestuur. Mense wat lede is en nie hierdie kommunikasie die afgelope paar maande ontvang het nie, kan e-pos stuur na info@overbergfpa.co.za. Werwing van nuwe lede, die voorbereiding van ’n ingeligte strategie en bou van die nodige kapasiteit om die vereniging effektief te laat funksioneer is tans van die grootste take van die nuwe BBV. Vir meer inligting, besoek www.overbergfpa.co.za of kontak die vereniging by 028 425 1690 om ’n lid te word.

Church welcomes a new priest KERRY VAN RENSBURG A new priest who has been in ministry for 45 years and brings a wealth of experience to his new congregation, has been installed at the Hermanus Catholic Church. Father Barry Matthews has taken over from Father Bart Walsh as parish priest at Our Lady of Light Catholic Church. Father Bart has moved to a new parish in Mitchells Plain. Fr Barry has come straight from the UK where he spent the past seven years doing supply work for the archdiocese of Liverpool, to take up his position in Hermanus. Cautious about going into too much detail about his many years in the ministry, Fr Barry simply says: “I worked in South Africa from 1969 to 1982 as a priest in a different denomination, and from there went to Matabeleland.” He spent 12 years in this area, and

Victoria Falls and Hwangi National Park were included in his parish. He then spent five years in Harare

before returning to Cape Town. He attended a Catholic seminary and in 2002 was ordained for work in Malmesbury and Atlantis. This was followed by a stint in Kuils River, before he returned to his home country, the UK, where he began his work in Liverpool. Fr Barry will be inducted as parish priest serving the four churches in his new parish, which include Our Lady Of Light Church in Hermanus, The Martyrs of Africa Church in Zwelihle, St Peter the Fisherman Church in Gansbaai and the All Saints Anglican Church in Bredasdorp which is shared with the Anglican congregation. The induction service will take place on the feast of Corpus Christi (Body of Christ), at 11:00 on 22 June, which will include a procession of the Eucharist in the church grounds. The celebrant will be Rev Father Peter-John Pearson, vicar general of the Diocese of Cape Town.

Nuwe, inspirerende drama by Sprokkelster JANINE VAN DER RIET ’n Nuwe drama wat Saterdag 14 Junie by die Sprokkelster Teater in Onrus te sien is, is geskryf en word opgevoer deur plaaslike inwoners uit die Overstrand. Oorboord/Miss-fit se teks is aanvanklik deur Celeste Slabber-Loriston, oorspronklik van die Paarl en nou woonagtig in Voëlklip, geskryf, maar sy sê ná vele werksessies en hulp, en veral tydens repetisies, is die finale storie geskryf. Sy speel Mel Burger in Oorboord/Miss-fit. Miss-fit belig die wêreld van verslawing: die behoefte om te ontsnap, gered te word en geken te word, asook die mens se behoefte aan liefde. Om die letsels van haar verlede te ontsnap, raak Mel Burger (’n doodgewone huisvrou) verslaaf aan haar voorskrifmedikasie. Met die vlambare kombinasie van alkohol verval sy in ’n waansin van illusie en eensaamheid. Sy verteenwoordig die meer as 50% van die samelewing wat voorskrifmedikasie gebruik as kruk om die wêreld te oorleef. Marilyn Monroe, ’n ikoon van verslawing, word die simbool van Mel Burger se stryd. Hul ervarings en ontnugtering word verweef tot een siel se geveg met die werklikheid en verwerping, asook hul behoefte om te behoort. Saam op die verhoog is Marhette Van Huyssteen, voorheen van Pretoria en nou woonagtig in Westcliff in Hermanus. Sy speel Mel Burger se “ander ek”, Marilyn. Sy verteenwoordig versoeking, ontsnapping, verslawing en die dood. Shirley Ellis van Vermont keer terug teater toe ná ’n lang speelvak in

Marhette van Huyssteen, Shirley Ellis en Celeste Slabber­Loriston. die televisie-arena. Sy behartig die regie en storievertelling. Slabber-Loriston en Van Huyssteen sê die stuk het hulle geïnspireer omdat hulle in hul eie lewe kontak het met mense wat vasgevang is in die greep van verslawing. “Dit was die dryfveer vir die ontstaan van die teks. Hierdie ervaring gee ook die nodige begrip vir die verslaafde én die familie,” sê Slabber-Loriston. Alhoewel Oorboord/Miss-fit reeds op Stellenbosch en in die Paarl opgevoer is, het die projek gestalte gekry in die Overstrand. “Ons nooi graag skole en ander organisasies uit ons eie geweste om ’n enkelvertoning by te woon by die Sprokkelster Teater in Onrus op Saterdag 14 Junie om 20:00,” sê sy. Kaartjies is beskikbaar teen R100 per persoon. Groepe van 10 of meer

kan kaartjies teen slegs R60 per persoon bekom. Bel Sprokkelster by 082 896 5106. ) Die groep beoog om in die toekoms die vertoning na gemeenskappe in die Overstrand/Overberg te neem. “Dit sal gebruik word as mondstuk vir die probleem in ons gemeenskap. Ons wil ook graag volwassenes, die jeug en jong kinders bereik. Ons glo die probleem is ’n werklikheid in al drie generasies – van grootouers tot kleinkinders.” Organisasies soos kerke, ander gemeenskapsorganisasies, skole en klinieke wat betrokke wil raak by hierdie projek, kan Ellis bel by 082 940 2396, Van Huyssteen by 082 786 3966 of Slabber-Loriston by 083 708 4917. Die stuk kan ook ingespan word as geldinsamelingsprojek vir verskeie organisasies.

NATURE MATTERS Did you know: 8 June was World Oceans Day. We all know that Walker Bay is one of the best places to see whales from the land. But what is less known is that it also has one of the most colourful cold-water coral reefs in the world. This amazing reef stretches from

Hermanus to Hangklip, less than a kilometre from the shore. It is home to beautifully coloured hard and soft corals, sea stars, feather stars, anemones, horsefish, pipefish, cute little sharks and the most spectacular nudibranchs. Nudibranchs? Watch this space next week.

DONATION HONOURS CLUB FOUNDER: The members of the Overberg Model Railway Club donated R1 000 to the Overstrand Hospice in mem­ ory of their founder and late chairperson Paul Wolvaardt. Current chairper­ son Norman Tait (left) handed the donation to hospice funding coordinator Dee Back.

Koos and Joanie Smith have undertaken a cycle challenge to raise funds for the Hopeland Project which aims to build a much needed aftercare facility for the chil­ dren from Hopeland.

Cycle challenge to raise funds On the outskirts of Stanford is an area called Hopeland, where the signs of poverty are everywhere. Unemployment is rife, crime is a given and drug abuse has become a major concern. The Hopeland Project has been initiated to bring hope to the children living in this area. The project is supported by the Fynbos Community Foundation, which believes everything possible should be done to offer the children of Stanford the best possible facility for them to spend time after school in a safe and caring environment. This after-care service will include a proper lunch, homework help, learner support and various other programmes. The Fynbos Community Foundation has purchased a building on a 5 000 square metre plot at a cost of R 850 000. The foundation has been given six months to raise the funds. The after-school facility will be operational from 21 July. Four major fundraising events are currently taking shape of which the Western Cape Cycle Challenge is the first. Individuals and companies are asked to sponsor a cyclist per kilometre. The cycle challenge began on 2 June and the route will take the cyclists from Stanford to Bitterfontein in the west and then on to Drie Susters in the east. They will visit several schools along the way, spreading a message of hope and encouragement. Koos and Joanie Smith will be the foundation’s representatives on this journey. For more information, contact Koos and Joanie on 082 708 4045. To make a pledge go to myshare@hopeland.co.za.

HAWS to hold cat tea party The cat volunteers who love the kitty cats at HAWS are organising a tea party along with the staff members of HAWS, in aid of the welfare cats and kittens and to introduce the public to the many gorgeous animals they have. So many cats have been waiting a long time for a home and if people could just come along and see what wonderful characters they have, perhaps a few may get the opportunity to find a home. The cat tea party will be held on Monday 16 June between 10:00 and 12:00 at the kennels at 4 Steenbras Street. Come and spend a few hours of fun with refreshments and snacks, and play with, stroke and meet the kitties – and of course the doggies too, for those who prefer to meet the dogs. There will be a special low adoption fee and HAWS asks that you bring along a little present for either the cats or the dogs (food, toys etc). Bring your family and friends and spread the word. For information call 028 312 1281 or 083 448 4805. If the weather is foul, the tea party will automatically be postponed to Saturday 21 June.

PRACTICAL: ACCENT HATCH OFFERS AMPLE SPACE AND AFFORDABILITY

Road test: Hyundai’s new Accent hatch FRANS LE ROUX Gone are the years of unreliable, unsafe and bland vehicles. If you are in the market, it is near impossible to find a “bad” car. For decades, premium German brands were ruling the roost. They offered reliable, good-looking options, but at a hefty price tag. Luckily for us, some healthy competition emerged and the biggest winners came out of Korea and China. One of the most impressive progressions were seen from Korean giant, Hyundai. Just when you think they have enough models in their line-up, they add a new one. The Hyundai Accent hatchback quietly sneaked into the market re-

cently. Bringing with it another option of a good practical no-nonsense hatchback. Okay, so where does the Accent hatch fit in? Very good question I would say. At first I was rather confused because you get the i10, i20 and i30 hatchbacks. Each differing in size, specification-level and price. The Accent hatch then fits in between the i20 and the i30. See it as a bigger sibling to the i20, but a more affordable alternative to the i30. The Accent hatch features a rather punchy 1.6-litre 4 cylinder petrol engine which delivers 91 kW/15 Nm. These figures, coupled with a slick 6-speed manual gearbox, translate into a satisfying driving experience. Average fuel

economy is claimed at 6,5 F/100 km, although my figures returned slightly higher at 7,3 F/100 km. The Accent’s steering is very light, thanks to its power assisted steering. At low speeds it is easy to manoeuvre around town or get into that tight parking space. Speaking of which, the Accent Hatch has rear park assist as standard. No more reversing into lampposts or scraping the occasional tree. In the looks department, I found the Accent Hatch rather pleasing to look at. It shares the same front end as its sedan brother. Those smiling fog lights and prominent Hyundai badge are all part of Hyundai’s new fluid design philosophy.

Hyundai’s new Accent Hatch fits in nicely between their i20 and i30 hatchbacks. It offers good space and value for money. PHOTO: QUICKPIC

It has been part of their recent success, and this platform is shared throughout their model line-up. Step inside and you are greeted by a familiar interior. Blue lights light up the cabin, while familiar silver and grey inserts draw your attention. These striking additions to the cabin help lift the overall quality and feel. A multi-function steering-wheel fits nicely between your hands while a large display-screen makes navigating your Bluetooth and multimedia devices easy. Rear legroom is more than enough with seating for two adults. The boot swallows a generous 370 F. With most South Africans needing to cut down on spending, the good-old hatchback segment is

crammed full of decent options. The Accent Hatch retails for R234 900 for the manual. Hyundai offers a comprehensive 5year/150 000 km warranty along with a 5-year/90 000 km service plan. Considering the size of the Accent, it will be hard to beat in terms of practicality and price. The main rivals in this category include the Toyota Auris 1.6 Xi, Opel Astra 1.6 hatch and the Ford Focus 1.6 Trend. Only the Auris offers similar value but it has a poorer warranty. If you directly compare the Accent to its bigger i30 brother, you will save R25 000. For your saving you get a no-nonsense family hatchback that has plenty to offer. This Accent hatch is a definite contender for your shopping list.

Toyota FJ Cruiser: the thumping brute HANJO STIER Some of my earliest childhood memories take place on gran’s farm. The smell of furniture polish in the gigantic house, a thriving herb garden out front, the monotonous beat of a Lister engine and a powder blue Toyota Land-Cruiser FJ40 pick-up parked next to the second barn. The farm has long been sold and I often think that FJ40 sealed the deal. Never shy to work, it always started first time and its blue paint was marked with countless scratches and dents from the many tasks it performed as the daily runner, hunting vehicle and carry-all of this land. Fast forward a few decades and Toyota pays homage to these durable workhorses with this retro take called FJ Cruiser. Based heavily on a Land-Cruiser Prado, the oddball 4x4 combines elements of its ancestor with strange proportions, bizarre doors and a near-vertical windscreen with three wipers. Big headlights and ye olde Toyota letters frame the retro grill while mock silver bumpers protrude from the front corners just as much as the strange lights do at the back. The square wheel arches house big wheels with gun-metal alloys and the spare wheel sits on a rear door which hinges in the wrong direction. Due to its extreme squareness and slim window line, the cabin

Due to its extreme squareness and slim window line, the cabin has an extremely high waistline, tall dash­ board and low seating position PHOTO: QUICKPIC has an extremely high waistline, tall dashboard and low seating position. That slab of a front windscreen seems a mile away and for this reason, Toyota has installed a second set of side sun visors above both front doors. Its radio with CD/mp3, USB, Aux and Bluetooth capability, also looks like a relic but it pumps impressive tunes through six thumping speakers with satellite buttons on the height-adjustable steering wheel. The big instruments seem

a tad playful and supply battery voltage above the usual information. Rear accommodation can be tight for adults and the door/window construction doesn’t help to ease any claustrophobia. Most of the floor is covered in tough rubber mats and this also applies to the 990F boot area. Rear visibility is rather tragic so the reversing camera is a welcome standard feature. The FJ Cruiser has been discontinued elsewhere and this shows in

the cabin materials and ergonomics. The layout and style seems antiquated but this won’t be a problem for fans of retro. The big ventilation knobs, simple buttons and stalks are easily controlled and the only modern absentee is a trip computer. Perhaps that was done on purpose as the FJ is only available with a high-compression, 200 kW/380 Nm 4-litre V6. Delivering its power to two or four wheels via an old but smooth five-speed

automatic gearbox, it allegedly helps itself to an average of 11,4F/100 km – I think mid-teens are more likely. Toyota has addressed this with a recent update which adds a secondary tank to make up a total volume of 159 L. Another big novelty is Crawl Control which allows the FJ Cruiser to climb, ford or descend treacherous terrain on its own, at variable (slow) speeds controlled by a rotary knob on the cabin’s ceiling. This adds to the car’s already remarkable off-roading abilities which can also call on four-wheeldrive, low-range ratios, a rear differential lock, active traction control, impressive 245 mm ground clearance, 34° approach and 31° departure angles. Vehicle stability control, ABS brakes with EBD are also standard. The FJ retains its sturdy, ponderous yet unbelievably comfortable suspension which means it won’t put up with any fast corners. In a straight line, though, the lively V6 propels this 2 030 kg car to 100 km/h in under eight seconds and on to a limited top speed of 175 km/h. Parking this brute in your driveway requires R476 500 of your moolah. The Sport version retails for R500 200 and both come with a 3-year/100 000km warranty and 5year/90 000km service plan. If it’ll last as long as that old blue Cruiser is debatable, but its chances are better than most other new cars. Galimoto Media

Exciting future for MG and Maxus in SA QUICKPIC

South Africa’s MG and Maxus can look forward to an exciting future after the latest developments at its parent company, SAIC, the biggest automaker in China, the world’s biggest car market. SAIC, who took over iconic British marque MG and also manufactures the popular light commercial vehicle range of Maxus, named Chen Hong, previously the company’s president and vice chairman, its new chairman. The state-owned automaker said Chen will succeed 63-year-old Hu Maoyuan Hu Maoyuan, who retired last week after 15 years as SAIC’s chairman. Vice President Chen Zhixin, who heads SAIC’s passenger car operation, has been promot-

ed to become SAIC’s president, according to an announcement the Shanghai Communist Party Committee published on its website. Top officials of state-owned companies are all appointed by China’s ruling Communist Party. The shuffle follows the opening of a dedicated new MG plant in Thailand, where the MG3 enters production next month. MG South Africa plans to launch the extremely successful MG3 in the second half of this year. The availability of this new super mini has been hampered by massive UK demand, but South Africa will now receive cars from the new plant which opened in Thailand last month. Last year, SAIC sold 4,7 million vehicles through its joint ventures with Volkswagen and GM. SAIC Motor achieved record global sales last

year of over 5,1 million units; the first Chinese automotive manufacturer to exceed five million units in a year. Of these, 230 000 of this extraordinary end of year figure can be attributed to sales of the MG and Roewe marques worldwide, including MG South Africa. Roewe is SAIC’s in-house brand, based on MG technology. Despite being manufactured in Asia for the last five years, Maxus commercial vehicles and MG still retain their British design and technology. Maxus vehicles have been proven the most reliable in the UK for the last four years, regularly outperforming the likes of IVECO, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Nissan and Toyota, to name but a few, while the new MG3 has become the biggest MG success in history in less than a year after launch. Maxus and MG are locally distributed, sold and serviced by Mandarin Motors under the

banner of Combined Motor Holdings (CMH), a leading South African motor retailer group listed on the JSE. Maxus and MG will soon have 15 dedicated dealersthroughoutSouthAfrica,withadditional service outlets in remote areas.

Jill is looking for a home after spending many years at Kleinmond Animal Welfare Society.

Jill looking for forever home

Elzaan Visser riding on a wooden bridge.

The Kleinmond Animal Welfare Society is trying their best to find a home for Jill. Jill has been with KAWS for so long, she lost count of all the years. She is about six years old and yet she has to spend winter in and out at KAWS. Jill is a very happy, friendly and sweet girl. She enjoys water a lot and will be happy with a walk every now and again on the beach. This Collie cross breed will fit perfectly into a home with an older couple, as she is not that energetic anymore. She gets along well with other dogs, but tend to get a bit jealous when she is with a human that she thinks is hers and hers alone, but she doesn’t fight, she just gives a little warning. She walks wonderfully on a lead. Contact Nicola Ramos on 084 803 8873 or nixrsa@gmail.com or Helene Strydom on 073 354 4915 or kleinmondaws@yahoo.com.

hind this day was showing women that they can have immense fun in a male dominated sport. “There are so many awesome MTB routes in the Overberg, and this is a sport you can do with your kids, hubby or just friends. We were 15 ladies varying from ages 21 to 52 – and we all had an awsome time.” She says mountain biking is an opportunity to network and make new friends, and has far outgrown golf in terms of sponsors as well as being “the” sport to do amongst the men! On Saturday, the group learnt new skills at the Paul Cluver bike park, had wine and champagne and enjoyed lunch. Corné Barnard from Rockhopper Adventures was the trainer for the day and according to Stemmet, he was awesome with the ladies and made it a day to remember. The fun day included sponsored prizes to the value of R10 000. Prize categories varied from the muddiest bike, the biggest fall, the loudest yeller, the most skilled and the most glamorous. “Local businesses really supported our ladies event, and we would like to thank each and every one of them: SA Forest Adventures, Amri Hair Salon, Dr C Gordon DC

GOLF DAY: Curro Hermanus hosted their inaugural Curro Hermanus Open golf day on 30 May at the Arabella Golf Club. It was a perfect day for golfing and a field of 80 players were competing in a four ball alliance, with two scores counting towards the tournament. The day’s winners were Ilze Pe­ ters­Cloete, here with Hennie Mentz, the ex­ ecutive head at Curro Hermanus, Lindsay Henderson, Willis Coetzee, and Thea Al­ bertyn, who ended the day on a massive 94 points to be declared the overall winners of the event. Coetzee was also awarded as the best lady golfer.

2ND PLACE: In second place was the four ball with André Pollard, Eddie Con­ radie jr, Dr. Chris van der Merwe, and Malcom Law. Here are André Pollard, Hennie Mentz from Curro Hermanus and Malcom Law at the prize­giving.

3RD PLACE: Curro Hermanus ended in third place. From left are Dexter Rowinger, Barry and Debbie Jones, Hennie Mentz and John Lange.

Golf round­up with Julian Shaw Well, what can we say about this week but wet, wild, windy and cold. Consequently not much golf was played at all! Tuesday’s ladies’ day rained out and Wednesday’s men’s day was a disaster, but luckily Saturday was a beautiful day and play resumed with a friendly stableford alliance to ease the golfers back onto a rather soggy course. Winning the day with a super 95 points were our tame gorilla Andrew Philip, Tyron Davidowitz, John Reynell and Joe Lyon. Second place by one point were Mike Brownlee, Peter Boshoff, Willie Vanderhoeven and the ghost was John Simson. Well done guys. Last week Monday saw an amusing incident when

Alan Toombs after heroi­ cally saving a ball from the water hazard. a four-ball of senior golfers were playing the 13th. Clive Day had to chip from the cart path towards the water hazard and Alan Toombs went to stand as “back-stop” on the hazard side of the green to prevent the chip from going into the water.

The ball promptly skipped over the green and Alan, the good wicketkeeper he is, gathered the ball before it could disappear into the deep. The rest of the fourball, standing opposite the hazard, saw him lunge for the ball, only to disappear completely from view! He unfortunately had lost his footing against the steep bank and toppled over backwards into the water hazard. A few moments later Alan re-appeared, dripping wet but still wearing his hat – and with golf ball aloft! He was wet from head to toe with green slime on his hat and one of the quick thinking golfers was out with his camera phone! Well done Alan Toombs, aka “the fish”.

Universals rugby on the ball against Cheetahs Last Saturday Universals rugby team travelled to Grabouw to play against the Cheetahs. Cheetahs had previously only lost one game and were determined to topple the unbeaten log leaders.

However, Universals made it eight out of eight in a hard-fought encounter which saw them win convincingly 27-15. The man of the match was Brendan Barends, who had a sterling

game. Allen Tobias scored a gem of a try which was the try of the match. A great team effort. Universals’ next game is at home on 21 June against Struisbaai. – INVIC

Poor results for DOGS The DOGS played an Indivual Stableford on 10 June in Kleinmond. Conditions were perfect on Tuesday but the scoring defied explanation. The main suggestion for the poor scores was that the pack was suffering from collective anxiety. DOGSbody is off overseas for a couple of weeks. How will Deputy DOG cope? And will the leader of the pack be allowed back with the new Home Affairs draconian (and cash-generating) regulations? The Ex-Pole-Dancer was so anxious he was constantly lifting his head to see what was going on around him, which may be another explanation for his low, but winning, score. The Yorkshire Ripper was anxious when he shot a hole-inone on the par 58th, but, as the hole in question was a drainage pipe, there was no need to call ADT to fetch his wallet. Results: 34 André Franken; 33 Jon Forsyth, Trevor Vaughan, Ian Newman; 31 Alan Smith; 30 Dave Smith, Richard Ridge, Fred Garrett; 29 Peter Sulley; 28 Gordon Wilson; 24 Peter Theron, Dave Rade; 23 Pat Dewil; 22 Mike Graham, Michel Maury; 21 Robin Clacher (guest); 19 Gary Wentzel; 12 Keith Gillott – DAVE SMITH

Gansbaai gave them a tough time and it was revealed that they have been practising since the beginning of the year just to beat Qhayiya. They nearly managed in their objective, but Qhayiya proved too much for them because of the technical skills inculcated into them by their coach Nkosinathi Joja. The two goals for Qhayiya were scored by Zuko Jeko and Sinethemba Liwane. – MOGAMAT KAMEDIEN
