PERLEMOEN­JAAGTOG EINDIG IN BOTSING: Twee mans (33 en 37) is in hegtenis geneem en beslag is gelê op per­ lemoen ter waarde van R3 miljoen toe polisie vroeg Sater­ dagoggend twee BMW’s wat verdag voorgekom het vanaf Stanford agterna gesit het. Die een BMW het op die R43 by die CTM­verkeerslig in Hermanus teen twee polisievoertuie vasgejaag. Volgens luitenant Fadila September is die Her­ manus­polisie tydens die jaagtog ingelig om die pad by die CTM­verkeersligte te blok. Terwyl polisie­beamptes besig was om twee polisievoertuie dwarsoor die pad te parkeer, het die eerste BMW daarin geslaag om langs die kant van die pad verby te glip. Die tweede BMW het egter nie ge­ noeg spasie gehad nie en het deur die polisievoertuie pro­ beer bars, waarna hy bo­oor die verkeerslig gery en tot stilstand gekom het. ’n Saak van die besit van perlemoen en roekelose en nalatige be­ stuur is teen die twee ver­ dagtes geopen. Hulle het Maandag in die Hermanus­ landdroshof verskyn. “Ons weet wie die mense in die ander BMW was en hoop om so spoedig moontlik nog inhegtenisnemings te doen,” sê September. FOTO’S: JAN­

Draft Budget – a work in progress COMPILED BY CILENE BEKKER AND KERRY VAN RENSBURG A 15% increase in property rates and the abolition of the baboon monitoring system are among the measures that can be expected if the 2014/15 Draft Budget, to be tabled in council on 26 March, is approved. A preview of the proposed 2014/15 Draft Budget and the 2013/2014 Adjustment Budget were presented by Mayor Nicolette Botha-Guthrie and Cllr Ben Solomon at the Overstrand Municipal Advisory Forum (OMAF) meeting on Wednesday 19 February. Cllr Solomon, chairperson of the finance portfolio, says this is the

first time the council has provided insight into the budget process a month before the Draft Budget serves before council. The mayor referred to the effects of the worst global recession in 70 years, and said council is “mindful of the affordability and subsequently the ability of consumers to pay for services”. Certain challenging aspects of the budget was highlighted. Unfunded/underfunded mandates This means the municipality uses its own revenue sources to provide services on behalf of other spheres of government without compensation. To ensure proper service delivery, these unfunded mandates amount to R35,7 M on the Operational Budget.

from the sale of land. This must compete with acquiring new vehicles and minor assets. It is a principle in township establishment that expenditure for the provision of services (water, electricity, sewage, storm water systems and streets) must be charged to the cost of the erven to be alienated and then developed. This has not happened throughout the Overstrand, and there are now demands for the provision of new storm water drainage systems and tarred roads in certain areas. These demands have the effect that ratepayers throughout the Overstrand now need to shoulder the burden for the provision of such infrastructure.

Burglary at Pep Stores A suspect was arrested after stealing goods to the value of R50 000 on Friday from Pep Stores in the Main Road. When the manager of Pep opened the shop on Friday at around 07:45, she noticed that the shop had been broken into. Hermanus Police arrived soon thereafter and a suspect was arrested while they were patrolling the area. The suspect was found in possession of the stolen goods. According to Lieutenant Fadila September, spokesperson for the Hermanus Police, the suspect gained entry through the roof and stole clothes and shoes in the storeroom. The police are investigating the case and the suspect will appear in the Hermanus Magistrate’s Court soon.

Vrou in rolstoel ná aanranding JANINE VAN DER RIET ’n Vyf-en-twintigjarige vrou van Mount Pleasant is Vrydag uit die provinsiale hospitaal ontslaan, vasgekluister aan ’n rolstoel, ná ’n wrede aanval. Sy is voorverlede Sondag in die vroeë oggendure aangeval en vir die dood in ’n sloot agtergelaat. Die vrou se naam is bekend aan die Hermanus Times, maar word weerhou om haar identiteit te beskerm. Sy het na bewering op 15 Februarie saam met vriende in White City in Zwelihle gaan kuier en nooit teruggekeer huis toe waar sy saam met haar oupa in Mount Pleasant bly nie. Omstanders het haar die volgende dag ongeveer 07:00 in ’n sloot naby die parkie in Mount Pleasant gekry. Haar stiefpa sê hy was op pad werk toe, toe hy klomp mense sien hardloop na die sloot.Hy het daar aangekom en sy stiefdogter, halfnaak met net ’n toppie aan en halfbewusteloos, gesien. “Sy was baie deurmekaar met

groot wonde aan haar kop en haar lyf, en die polisie en ambulans is onmiddellik ontbied.” Sy is vyf dae later uit die provinsiale hospitaal ontslaan, maar dele van haar liggaam is in so ’n mate verlam dat sy afhanklik is van ’n rolstoel. Haar stiefpa sê sy is steeds baie deurmekaar en voel die polisie het nie genoeg gedoen nie. “Die polisie het nog nie met ons kom praat nie.” Volgens gerugte is die vrou deur verskeie mans verkrag, maar niemand, insluitend die polisie, kon dit bevestig nie. Haar stiefpa is ook nog nie seker wat aangaan nie, maar sê net ’n saak van aanranding met die doel om ernstig te beseer word ondersoek. En hy voel dit is nie genoeg nie. “Die polisie moet die saak deeglik ondersoek en met die mense gesels wat saam met haar uit was en op haar afgekom het,” het haar stiefpa gesê. Volgens luitenant Fadila September, woordvoerder van die Hermanus-polisie, word ’n saak van aanranding met die doel om ernstig te beseer deur die polisie ondersoek.

) Four cases of theft and burglary were reported in the last month by retired people living in retirement villages in Onrus. Stolen items included jewellery and antiques. Of the four cases, only one house had signs of forced entry, but according to these residents, the houses were all locked and secured.

All the incidents happened during the day when the residents were not at home. No arrests have been made and police warn the elderly to be careful, even though they live in secure retirement villages. “People must still make sure all their windows and doors are locked at all times,” lieutenant Fadila September, spokesperson for the Hermanus Police said.

2014/15 Draft Budget ­ a work in progress Special rating areas/improvement districts: In her Draft Budget speech presented to OMAF on 19 February, Mayor Nicolette Botha-Guthrie said the answer to the dilemma of providing new tarred roads and new storm water systems, possibly lies in what is known as special rating areas. The mayor referred to section 22 of the Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act, No 6 of 2004. In principle council can, in addition to the standard rates imposed on a property, impose an additional rate on all properties within a circumscribed area to improve or upgrade that area. This is at variance with the general rule that the revenue raised by rates is used for the municipality as a whole. But council may determine by resolution an area as a special rating area. The council must consult with the local community about both the proposed boundaries of the area, and the proposed improvement of the area. Proposed cuts: - R278 378 to be provided for Grants-in-Aid - saving R200 000 on the original budgeted amount. - R300 000 donations to festivals - saving

R320 000. - R400 000 per ward to be provided for wardspecific projects - saving R650 000. - the baboon monitoring system (as an unfunded mandate) to be abolished as from July 2014 - saving R1 356 400. - the office of the Local Labour Promotion Projects to be closed and such projects, if any, to be dealt with by the respective departments - saving R104 000. These cutbacks amount to R2 630 400, and are part of other saving measures to be instituted. ) The Draft Budget will be tabled in Council on 26 March for consideration and adoption, subject to a due public participation process to be followed, towards the end of May 2014, inclusive of an opportunity for written comments until 30 April 2014. ) For a further insight into the thinking behind the proposed budget, see the Hermanus Times website: www.hermanustimes.co.za for Mayor Nicolette BothaGuthrie’s full speech on the 2014/15 Draft Budget as well as Cllr Ben Solomon’s full Draft Budget speech. These were delivered at the OMAF meeting on 19 February.

R44­padwerke dalk klaar voor Paasfees JANINE VAN DER RIET Die padwerke op die R44 tussen Kleinmond en Rooi Els vorder fluks en as alles goed verloop, sonder onvoorsiene probleme wat buite die kontrakteurs se beheer is, sal die projek vroeg teen Junie, of dalk nog voor Paasnaweek, voltooi wees. So verduidelik Sarel Grobbelaar, resident-ingenieur op die kontrak en in diens van EFG Engineers. Die projek is deur die departement van vervoer en openbare werke van stapel gestuur. Die kontrakteur, Roadmac Surfacing Cape (PTY) Ltd, het begin Oktober verlede jaar reeds met die kleiner werke afgeskop. Hulle het begin met, onder meer, die opgradering van die R43/ R44-aansluiting en die bou van ’n regsdraai-baan by die piekniekarea langs die Palmietrivier. Behalwe vir die regmaak van die pad, word die landelike seksies van die pad herstel met ’n redelike fyn klip wat wielgeraas baie sal demp, verduidelik Grobbelaar. “Die tydige herseël verleng ook die verwagte leeftyd van die pad. Rooi Els, die hele Bettysbaai en Kleinmond, sowel as ’n 250 m seksie verby die Arabella-ingang, kry 30 mm asfalt, die tipe teer wat die wielgeraas die heel beste demp.” Tans is die kontrakteurs besig met die Bettys-

baai-gedeelte en behoort teen middel Maart klaar te wees, afhangende van die weer en ander faktore. Rooi Els se gedeelte is reeds voltooi. Daarna is dit Kleinmond se hoofstraat. “Hier sal ons halwe wydtes vir sowat 1 000 m daagliks toemaak, maar kan nie tweerigting-verkeer verseker as mense op parkering aandring nie, sê Grobbelaar. Na Kleinmond sal Arabella heel laaste gedoen word. ’n Belangrike feit, sê Grobbelaar, is dat daar net een masjien op die kontrak beskikbaar is wat hierdie spesifieke werk kan doen. Dus kan net een area op ’n slag gedoen word. Die uitmerk van die nuwe padmerke word van Maart beplan vir die paaie wat reeds voltooi is. Die ander paaie se padmerke en kat-ogies sal ’n paar weke later volg. Grobbelaar sê die voltooiingsdatum is 6 Junie, maar hy vertrou dat hulle reeds voor Paasnaweek van die pad af sal wees. “Behalwe natuurlik dinge soos pad-reserwe (heinings), terugsit van parkeerplekke (verfwerk) en skramrelings. “Ons doen alles moontlik om so min ontwrigting as moontlik te veroorsaak. Omdat verkeersprobleme in die nag minimaal sal wees, het ons selfs ernstig oorweeg om snags in Kleinmond te werk, maar voorsien dat die geraas ’n selfs groter steurnis sal wees.”

Leap Day for Frogs Leap Day for Frogs is on Friday 28 February when everyone is invited to join Whale Coast Conservation in leaping for frogs in Stanford from 18:00, alongside the evening market. There may even be an opportunity for kissing one, although no princes are guaranteed. Frogs are very good biological indicators of the health of wetlands and other watery habitats. The day is focused on taking a leap of action toward frog conservation, raising awareness about frogs and celebrating the incredible diversity of South African frogs. On Leap Day the focus of Whale Coast Conservation’s citizen-science frog project will be on the Western Leopard Toad, which is highly endangered, but is found in Stanford. The Western Leopard Toad volunteer group from Noordhoek, Toadnuts, will also be there. Susan Wishart, a volunteer from Kermit, the Kirstenhof-Muizenberg group, will speak about their conservation efforts. Naas Terblanche will describe the purpose of the Stanford Frog Group and the Western Leopard Toad project that he has initiated in Stanford.

Tattoo shop on holy ground ruffles a few feathers HEDDA MITTNER AND KERRY VAN RENSBURG Tattoo artist Jacques Roberts, also known as the Maori, has been running his Tattoo Studio in the Hermanus CBD for nearly five years. It was only when he relocated his business to a shop premises situated on the St Peter’s Church property at the beginning of February, that some eyebrows were raised. Brian Johnson wrote a letter to the Hermanus Times when the tattoo shop opened in what had at one time been a Christian bookshop, known as The Beacon. This shop has been closed for years and the premises was being utilised as a storeroom. Johnson, who titled his letter ‘Beacon of Light or Instigator of Urban Blight?’, is a town planning specialist. Although not a member of St Peter’s, he says: “My connections within the Anglican church are extensive, especially Holy Trinity Brompton and All Souls, both of which are answerable to the Bishop of London.” Before Johnson sent in his letter with a number of questions he wanted answers to, he and Reverend Adrian Knight, the minister at St Peter’s Church, had a run in. Knight says: “He came to the shop a few weeks ago and confronted me in the car park, making liberal use of quotations from the Bible. Fortunately I know my Bible well, but I won’t go into the details of this theo-

logical debate about the supposed sinfulness of tattoos. I just thought it was the height of arrogance to tell me how to run my church.” Knight says although some pressure concerning the tattoo shop has been applied through channels in the church, the response from the community at large has been positive and his “radical move” has been well received. When Roberts approached him looking for new premises, Knight says he agreed, provided Jacques paid six months’ rent upfront and renovated the shop himself. Roberts says: “When I was in Warrington Place, no one batted an eyelid. I offer a professional body modification service. I am an artist. I just happen to have a different media.” Below are some of Johnson’s questions and Rev Knight’s responses: Who authorised this change of land use? “I don’t think there has been a change – it was a shop before and it is still a shop.” Has this use been sanctioned by the church council? “Yes, it has. The council was not unanimous and concerns were raised, but we agreed to give it six months and then reassess. The bishop and the Diocese are aware of the agreement. The lease contract was sent to the trust board, in whose name church buildings are registered.” Has this been sanctioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury? “He is not our boss and has nothing to do with us.”

Is this commercial activity in conformity with the zoning scheme and LUPO pertaining to Hermanus CBD? “I haven’t a clue. If not, would this mean the bookshop was illegal all those years? Besides, other people rent our hall and run their businesses from there.” Has the local authority issued the necessary health clearances and approved the trading licence? “This is not required. Jacques conforms to the bio-waste disposal regulations and he is a registered professional.” Do the residents and businesses of Hermanus realise this type of land use has in the past caused the tone of an area to drop, which is followed by urban blight which leads to investor flight? “I don’t believe the CBD is about to collapse because of Jacques’ tattoo shop.” Is such behaviour the new face of Anglicanism? “We live in a time when we have to look at new expressions of church. If the people will not come to the church, we have to take the church to the people – for young people especially the church is more accessible when the Rev is seen to be non-judgmental and all embracing.”

In front of the tattoo shop which has moved from War­ rington Place to a premises at St Peter’s Church, are from left: Melissa Verster (ap­ prentice tattoo artist), Rev Adrian Knight, Dirk Swanepoel (cli­ ent), and Jacques Roberts, owner of the Tattoo Studio.

90­year­old helps to catch burglar

Ongeluk, skade in Onrus Inwoners van Onrus het Maandagaand ongeveer 19:30 eers skreeuende bande en toe die onmiskenbare geluid van ’n botsing gehoor. Die ongeluk het in Hoofstraat skuins oorkant die Total-motorhawe gebeur. Volgens ’n ooggetuie, Christopher Seekoei, het ’n donkerrooi Ford Mondeo van Hermanus se rigting teen ’n hoë spoed en aan die verkeerde kant van die pad gery. ’n Bejaarde vrou in ’n geel VW Golf moes uitswaai om ’n botsing te vermy. Die bestuurder van die Mondeor het ook uitgeswenk en remme aangeslaan, maar het beheer oor die motor verloor en teen die grensheining en staalhek van die Whale-Med-sentrum gebots. Dr. Wendy Cooke sê sy kon haar oë nie glo toe sy die verwoesting aan haar en dr. Lee-Ann Gillion se praktyk aanskou nie.

JANINE VAN DER RIET Reddingspersoneel sien om na die man wat in Onrus beheer oor sy motor verloor het. Die polisie en ambulanspersoneel was gou op die toneel. Die beseerde bestuurder is na die Hermanus-hospitaal geneem waar hy behandel en later ontslaan is. Hildige Beer, eienaar van die beskadigde gebou, vra dat die bestuurder van die VW Golf haar bel by 072 297 7905.

A man was arrested after he first attempted to steal goods at a house in Albertyn Street in Northcliff and then moved on to steal goods in the area where he was caught red handed by members of the police and security companies. The arrest was made after the owner of the house in Albertyn Street gave officials a good description of the man that entered their home at around 17:00 on Sunday. Sandra Rieger says she and her 90-year-old tenant were in the house while the intruder entered the lounge from an unlocked sliding door. “At about 17:00, while I was sewing in my back room, the man entered the lounge. The door opens out to an inner courtyard about one metre away from my tenant's door, who was also present at that time. Her door was also open as she sat on a chair close to her door.” The man proceeded to dismantle the video recorder and DStv box and wiring into a shopping bag. Rieger says the suspect must have been disturbed becuase he left without the goods and at the courtyard gate confronted Rieger’s surprised tenant.

She asked him what he wanted, to which he replied “work”. Then he asked the tenant who lives in the house if she would call the owner for him. When she refused, he left. “Then she called me and quickly recounted the story. Passing through the lounge, I noticed the goods on the floor bagged up and quickly went to the gate to see where he was. I recognised him in his green shirt from the day before when he came asking for money. Then we both contacted security, police and HPP, who responded promptly.” From their description, the man was caught just minutes later with other stolen items in his possession. According to Lieutenant Fadila September, spokesperson for the Hermanus police, the suspect was apprehended and detained by the security company and handed over to SAPS. The police are investigating a case of theft.

A suspect (in the green shirt) was caught with several stolen goods and arrested by the Her­ manus police.

Dassiesklip the ‘perfect place for a wind farm’

ANNETTE THERON “This is the perfect place to have built a wind farm,” said Ludwig van Aarde, technical director and project manager for Biotherm, the company that developed the first wind farm facility in the Overberg just outside Caledon. He made the remark just after the howling wind blew the tent away, shortly before the official opening of the Dassiesklip wind energy facility on Tuesday 18 February. The executive mayor of Theewaterskloof, Chris Punt, concurred with Van Aarde and expressed the wish that the whole of the Theewaterskloof region

should be covered with wind turbines. He said the naysayers’ complaints about the impact of the wind turbines on bird life, and negative publicity received by the local media, seem unfounded. Van Aarde says Dassiesklip first started to export power to the Eskom grid on 19 December last year, when the first turbine entered the performance testing phase. “Since then all the turbines were brought on line and the wind farm is exporting power from all nine turbines.” He said the wind farm will export a full 27 mW to the Eskom grid at wind speeds over 46 km per hour. “At a daily average consumption of 20 kWh per day, the

The nine­turbine Dassiesklip wind energy facility outside Caledon. wind farm will be able to supply more than 11 000 homes. A large house will consume up to 48 kW per day, in which case the wind farm will supply in the order of 5 000 houses.” All wind farm projects come with a regulated community development programme included in the contract with government. “The identification of new projects will be an ongoing initiative and the community will benefit from these programmes for the duration of our Power Purchase Agreement, which is 20 years,” said Van Aarde. He said their focus with these pro-

grammes will be on the areas of education and health care. MEC Alan Winde said South Africa needs more investments of this nature and the province will play a major role in renewable energy, as they believe it has the potential to create thousands of jobs in the future. Together with the Biotherm proposal, two more proposals are known to be on the table for the Overberg area. Caledon Wind will erect 31 turbines across three farms and the Langhoogte project will see a total of 44 turbines erected in Bot River, if approved. Mich Nieuwoudt, director of Sagit, the developers of the proposed Langhoogte wind farm, said the next round is scheduled for August 2014.

Adjustments to current Budget approved The two heavy downpours of rain in the Overstrand had a two-pronged effect. On the positive side the dams were filled, but from the financial side it had affected council’s finances pretty badly. During an ordinary meeting on Tuesday 25 February, council approved the second adjustment budget of 2013/14. Discussing these adjustments at the preceding OMAF (Overstrand Municipality Advisory Committee) meeting on 19 February, Councillor Ben Solomon, chairperson of the finance portfolio, said the rain and resulting flood damage to infrastructure amounted to R4,5 M while other repair work required after the rains also meant that money on the operational budget had to be used for unplanned maintenance. “Furthermore it affected our income from water negatively – at this stage it seems that the income can be R5,5 M below budget. The net effect of the additional expenses and possible reduced income amounts to a re-

budget, in this year’s adjusted budget own generated income will increase from R609,4 M to R675,4 M (by 10,8 % which is slightly more than the increase in rates and tariffs).

Limited edition bronze for Opportunity Art 3 Hermanus sculptor Willie Botha decided two years ago to stop producing the commissioned art for which he has become known over Southern Africa and much further abroad. He wanted to be free to focus on the art that he really believes in. He has just made one of his latest limited edition bronzes available for Opportunity Art 3, the art sale and auction to be hosted by Overstrand Hospice in Hermanus at the end of March. The sculpture, a 60 cm tall bronze that has been created using 3 000-year-old methods, is called Bound in Matter. It portrays a human figure that had been bound with ropes. In explaining the philosophy behind the work, Botha says: “With this sculpture I try to convey the message that we

should realise that each one of us has great potential. We should not think that we are somehow limited. “The lines of the ropes that bound the figure are still visible, but the ropes are gone. “We live in a material world. Our challenge is to master matter and not allow matter to master us.” He quotes Albert Einstein, regarded as the most influential physicist of the twentieth century: “The development of science and of the creative activities of the spirit requires a freedom that consists in the independence of thought from the restrictions of authoritarian and social prejudice.” Botha’s latest limited edition bronzes were displayed at the Everard Read Gallery in Cape Town and the Crystal Room in The Lost City Hotel.

St Peter’s needs pipe organist The sound of music is alive and well in St Peter’s Church, Hermanus. Well, that is, if at least one more organist can be found to play the pipe organ at St Peter’s church in Main Road on a regular basis. St Peter’s has become a fine venue for organ recitals and many residents and visitors to Hermanus have taken the opportunity of attending Evensong or one of the sung Eucharists on the first Sunday of the month to listen to the enhanced sounds an organ gives to traditional church music.

The director of music is having a difficult time arranging suitable music for the choir to sing, especially at Evensong on the third Sunday evening of the month, without the help of an organist. People who apply for the position must be prepared to attend choir practice on Wednesday evenings from 17:30 and the Eucharist service on Sundays at 09:30, as well as playing for some weddings and funerals. Call St Peter’s office on 028 312 1325 on weekday mornings between 08:30 and 12:00 for further details.

Calling all musicians By popular request Songs of Praise is back on the programme for FynArts 2014 and so is the excellent choir, this time with a couple of soloists. And, of course, so is the fabulous orchestra made up almost entirely of local Overberg musicians. Last year, players had great fun and are all back in the fold. If you play an orchestral instrument and have recently moved into the area or got to hear about Hermanus FynArts (6 – 16 June 2014) and Songs of Praise, you are more than welcome to join in. Sheet music will be sent to you closer to the time, and there will be two rehearsals with the whole orchestra – one on Saturday 7 June and a second on the morning of Sunday 8 June, the day of Songs of Praise. If you would like to be a part of FynArts and join this heartwarming concert, please send an e-mail to Mary Faure on fynarts@hermanus.co.za.

Stephen Davison passed away suddenly last week.

Beloved chef and lecturer dies KEVIN WARWICK Stephen Paul Davison, who had been a lecturer at Warwick’s Chef School for a decade and was fondly known to his students as Mr D, passed away on Wednesday evening 19 February after a heart attack at the age of 62. Born in England, Davison completed his professional cooking apprenticeship in Yorkshire, England before gaining further experience at Hotel George VI in Paris, France. He then worked in South Africa, holding down sous chef and executive chef positions in prominent 4 and 5 star hotels before joining the Cape Technicon Hotel School in Granger Bay as chef lecturer. After five years, he moved to Hermanus where he lectured at the Warwick’s Chef School for 10 years. Steve’s love for the art of teaching, cooking and working with students got him involved in the Overstrand Training Institute’s (OTI) cookery programs. He was a member of the South African Chefs Association (Saca) for many years and served on the association’s Cape Committee. He will be sadly missed by his best friend Glenda, his son Christopher, family, friends, colleagues and students. A memorial service will take place on Monday 10 March at 14:00 at the United Church, 13 Royal Street, Hermanus. All who knew this wonderful, kind and loving man are invited to come and celebrate a life lived to the full.

The Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse ladies had an exceptionally good practice walk in aid of Kids Can, an after-school care centre based in Kleinmond. On Saturday 22 February 75 people – not only Lighthouse ladies – participated in the walk from Kleinmond beach to Meerensee, a distance of 16 km along a very difficult sloping beach. Men were encouraged to join the L2L ladies for moral support and a bit of exercise. Kids Can volunteers were out in force to ensure that the children, who also participated in the walk, had a wonderful time on the beach as they walked part of the distance. The L2L ladies hope to raise ap-

proximately R20 000 through their practice walk for this worthwhile cause. The final amount will be handed to Kids Can at a special awards evening after the main walk has been completed. The main 2014 L2L walk will take place from 20 to 23 March, from Cape Agulhas Lighthouse to Danger Point Lighthouse, a distance of about 100 km along pristine beaches. The ladies are aiming to beat the amount of R277 777 which they raised for their charity of choice last year. Residents are welcome to sponsor any of the 60 ladies signed

NEW WEDDING VENUE: Bosko Ministeries International launched their new function venue on 16 February. The open­air chapel, with stone wall and reed ceiling, is set among old pine trees, which is why it is called La Pineta (meaning “pine grove”).

Reverend Ivat Gxokhe and president Matata Patric Belani of the Ap­ ostolic church could not believe their eyes after vandals destroyed their church. Every piece of building material and furniture was removed, leaving only an open piece of land.

Church destroyed The reverend and president of a church in Zwelihle are very upset after their church was completely destroyed. Only the empty ground where the church was built on can be seen. President Patric Belani and Reverend Ivat Gxokjwe of the Apostolic Church, said 170 adults and 130 youth members of Zwelihle lost their place of worship on 18 January when ill-willed people vandalised the church in such a manner that not even a brick or the wood and iron structure were left behind. “It is now only an empty plot with nothing on it. Everything was bro-

ken off and removed from the premises,” Gxokjwe says. The reverend and president of the church were out of town when the incident happened. Besides the building, their furniture and belongings inside the church were also stolen. “The people want to rebuild the church, but need materials to do so. We would like to appeal to the residents of the community for help to enable us to rebuild the church. Anyone willing to donate materials or their time, contact Belani on 073 855 8609 or Gxokhwe on 083 368 4728 or email ivatgxokhwe@gmail.com.

Mall should be part of long­term strategy EDITORIAL COMMENT No budget surprises A sneak preview of the thinking behind the 2014/15 Draft Budget has been presented by the mayor and chairperson of the Overstrand Municipality’s financial portfolio. While it still needs to be finalised, this Draft Budget, in its early stages, gives residents and homeowners an idea of the municipality’s cost saving measures and increases. The thinking behind showing their cards earlier, rather than later, is to prevent surprises when the Draft Budget is tabled at the end of March. Councillor Ben Solomon says in order to present a budget that will provide a small surplus which can be used to replace vehicles or act as a buffer in case of another major fire or flood, it is necessary to increase the property rates by 15%. He says the effect of a higher rate on property rates and a lower rate on service charges, rather than a uniform increase of 8,5%, will result in a slightly higher increase for owners of houses with a higher value than owners of homes with a lower value. The municipality has to cut its coat according to its cloth. Have a look at the complete speeches delivered by the Overstrand Mayor, and Cllr Solomon at the recent OMAF meeting, on our website: www.hermanustimes.co.za and share your comments.

I have read and listened with interest over the past weeks to the swathes of opinion concerning the proposed building of a shopping mall in or around Hermanus, most recently commentated upon by the always erudite and eloquent Piet louw (Letters 13/2/14). Whilst it is hard to argue with most of the content of his letter, it is apparent that the discussion remains focused on a single aspect of what should be a broader discussion surrounding the regeneration of the area. The shopping mall in isolation will do little for the local economy and any benefits will be at the cost of businesses elsewhere, with the danger of further degeneration of the town. In short, shopping malls are a positive addition to the local economic environment but only when part of a broader and strictly administered policy of regeneration. Visitors are not attracted by malls, but they will certainly take advantage of them if they were attracted to the town. Whilst no two seaside towns are identical there are certain characteristics which most, including Hermanus, adhere to. Hermanus has not been able to meaningfully and sustainably create a new economic purpose, and is still over-reliant on the unpredictable tourist trade and other low-wage, low-skills and sometimes seasonal sectors. Jobs in public administration, education and health are also overrepresented. The low numbers of jobs in the sectors which have suffered from the immediate impacts of the banking crisis may have protected seaside towns in the short term, but their reliance on publicsector jobs and investment make them vulnerable to the tightening of public-sector spending over the medium term. The demographics of Hermanus are also a contributing factor with a high level of inhabitants of pensionable age combined with our migration of younger families and the proliferation of care facilities. This has added to the problem of the local housing market, which has become increasingly polarised. Those homes attractive to “outside money” become inflated to a level unaffordable to individuals and families working in the local sector, the remaining housing stock deemed unattractive to those who the town may wish to attract to take part in any regeneration. The availability of cheap, privately rented accommodation remains a hurdle to economic growth, as do the high rental lev-

els of commercial property, both more in keeping with a larger city but without the buoyant labour market. Like many seaside towns Hermanus is also a victim of its own geography. The solution to these problems is a structured and tailored policy by local government in coordination with its private sector partners. There must be a clear vision for the future in which a new purpose for the area is created. The strategy adopted must take a broader view of the challenges facing the area with action to re-balance the housing market, taking action to limit the over-supply of cheap, sub-standard housing and encouraging its replacement with more attractive housing alternatives, which will not have a drag on house prices and subsequently economic growth. A move away from over-reliance on the tourism sector, including incentivising business growth through subsidies for new business, the easing of commercial levies and additional help for those offering training schemes or apprenticeships and a cohesive policy regarding local transport networks, allowing business to tap into sub regional labour markets and housing stock, along with the opportunity to tap into other local industries. Tourism will always constitute a vital part of the local economy; it needs more hands-on control. Specific programmes to regenerate and beautify the area, a clean sweep policy along with improved local facilities such as lighting, green spaces and public amenities; more pedestrian friendly areas in the town; a more regimented grading system of local establishments; and encouragement and opportunity for local and cultural development combined with improvements in food and drink offerings along with retail facilities, and that may well include the building of a new mall. All these will help encourage investment into the area. Economic solutions will not work in isolation however, stabilisation of the poorest areas and greater cohesion between the different communities is essential. As part of a coordinated long-term policy of joined-up thinking, the proposed mall would add value to the local economy and its inhabitants. As an isolated act it will not, and may well lead to further degeneration of the town centre, rendering it less attractive to prospective visitors.

Resident’s view on mall We have seen a number of letters written to your newspaper which represent the views of business owners, and these largely reflect the feeling that the approval of the proposed mall would result in the demise of the present main CBD area. That a further new shopping complex is neither necessary, nor environmentally the best use of this prime property which has been purchased. I would like to add the other side of the story, which represents the views of the customers. We have been living in Berghof, Onrus for the past seven years, and very much look forward to a modern new complex which will be considerably closer to our home. It will save fuel, which seems to go up in price monthly. The mall will offer a wider variety and quality than what is available from some of our older CBD supermarkets, which seem to have decided to concentrate on the lower/middle segment of the market. Regarding the demise of the present CBD, this need not happen if the shop owners concentrate on the real needs of the potential customers, which could be divided into: - tourists: banks, cell phone outlets, restaurants, photo agencies, tour bookings, boutiques, tea/coffee venues, tourist mementoes, open air markets, flower sellers etc. - young people: movie houses, clubs, ice rink, fast food outlets, internet cafés etc.

ROB parks bypass issue After much deliberation and a number of meetings of the ROB (Ratepayers Opposed to Bypass) working group as well as meetings with the engineering consultant, the municipality and the Hermanus Ratepayers Association, the working group has concluded that we should park the issue of the bypass road along our mountain range. In our last note to ROB members on 5 February 2014, we covered recent developments up to the public address in the Sandbaai Hall by Western Cape Transport Minister Robin Carlisle. In the course of a busy presentation he announced that he would be retiring from his post. He also stated clearly and distinctly that there would not be a bypass road along the mountain within Fernkloof Nature Reserve, not while he was there and also not under his successor. He also referred to a traffic study which showed extremely light traffic leaving Hermanus towards Stanford and Gansbaai which, apart from the enormous cost, did not justify a mountain bypass. He said that other alternatives are being de-

Chasing baboons is a waste of time The Town Council is asked to take this criticism from whence it comes for it comes from a Laevelder who loves animals. The chasing of the baboons in Voëlklip, pesky as they can be sometimes, irks me because it is an exercise in futility. Like all animals in South Africa they need their ‘space’ and they must not be fed by humans, full stop. To chase them from one street to the next, like a game of ‘hide and seek’ with cars driven at excessive speeds, pop-guns at the ready, every weekday, Saturdays and Sundays, when required, costing the ratepayers money with little or nothing achieved, needs to be considered. Council obviously has the interest of residents in mind, and wants to be seen to be doing something, which is commendable but I am afraid, in my opinion, there is no argument for this waste of staff time. Warn the residents of the consequences of leaving doors open and leaving food around – this not only encourages baboons but also burglars – and just let nature take its way. Just recently we had a leopard in the property across the road in Phalaborwa and that caused some excitement, but they did not call out the army.

Trauma unit nurse is grateful for own healing For all who know me, and those that don’t, I am the big male registered nurse who works at the Trauma Unit at the Provincial Hospital. Due to a severe illness a month ago, I was admitted to Hermanus Mediclinic for 17 days during the month of January. I would like to convey my thanks and appreciation to the following who stood by me. Firstly praise the Lord as He healed me. Many thanks too to all the doctors in attendance: Dr Tredoux, Dr Adams, Dr Du Plessis, Dr M Coetzee, Dr Wium, Dr Middlemost and the brave and so supportive physiotherapist Hein Attwood. To the dedicated ICU, so well run by Sr A Louw – I appreciate you all. I can’t remember all your names, sorry. And thanks to all of you working in Ward B. Matron N Bouwer, Sr Kuun and Sr Klem from Provincial Hospital, many thanks too. It is really mind-boggling how concerned everyone was. For all the well wishes, too many to name, thank you. I am now at home, slowly getting stronger each day. Hermanus, you are the BEST place to live in, as you have so many wonderful inhabitants all living here. Wow!

veloped. We have subsequently been informed that following the completion of the transport study, Province is preparing to have three public presentations in the Overberg (one in Hermanus) to inform residents of the findings. Implementation of these would then follow the necessary stages, including public participation. We believe with a high degree of certainty that a bypass road would not be included and that, although its members will remain vigilant, it is no longer necessary for the ROB working group to remain active. After numerous discussions with persons in and out of government, the working group has decided to recommend that the issue of a bypass road now be parked in a “keep the file but stop the campaign” mode. It would also bring about the disbandment of the working group. Thank you for your support and patience. We encourage you to be aware of and, if necessary, involved in any alternative proposals concerning transportation in or through Hermanus.

Birding for beginners Although I cannot shed any light on why the two ‘pheasants’ fell from the sky (HT 20 Feb Fowl play or nature’s way), I have to point out that the birds are actually Cape spurfowl, which used to be called Cape francolin and in Afrikaans Kaapse fisant, which was obviously directly translated to pheasant. There are no wild pheasants in South Africa.

BARBARA PALMER

Fowl play With reference to the Fowl play or nature’s way article: I have had the same thing happen. In my case, it was due to the birds flying into the window on the first floor, and presumably breaking their necks. That would have been what the thud was. I have had a few bird strikes, sometimes fatal, but not always. Sometimes they just need a bit of a rest to recover, and then fly off again.

Die see is altyd pragtig, maar nie almal kan ’n ete van R100 tot R200 per persoon bekos­ tig of wil die geld uitgee nie. Daar is sulke mooi flieks wat wys. Ons het ’n behoefte aan musiekprente, gesins­

flieks en komedies. Daar is soveel pro­ bleme en daarom kan ’n teater goeie ontvlugting bied. Nou moet ’n mens oor die berg ry om daar te gaan fliek en met die brandstof wat blykbaar teen die einde van die jaar R20 per liter gaan wees, is dit ’n duur uitstappie. Die inwo­ ners en besoekers gaan liewer vir ’n dag Somerset­Wes toe om te gaan fliek. Hul­ le loop in die mall rond met die baie winkels en gaan eet daarna in ’n restau­ rant, en dit alles ter wille van ’n fliek. So, Hermanus verloor die geld. ) For months I have thought of what to do about my problem. My property and bedroom window border the guest­ house where a gym opened last year.

Cooler weather is on its way, with light rain on Friday evening. On Sunday afternoon the weekend will conclude with more rain, which is expected to continue through the night. For the rest of next week it will be warm and sunny – almost perfect autumn weather.

I have had the privilege of living in Hermanus for the last 35 years and during that period I have been involved extensively in community activities. I, together with other business people in town, established the “sakekamer” in the early 1980s, I was a member of the Rotary Club, I was involved with the rate payers association and served on the municipal council for five years. Therefore I regard myself as amply qualified to speak on a topic like the Retail Africa development. Over the years I have seen this town grow from a total population of approximately 20 000 to where we are now approaching 100 000 people – almost five times the size when I arrived here. During this time the dynamics of development have changed dramatically and at a number of stages critical decisions had to be taken to keep up with the growth and the demands which that expansion created. The very recent development of the bypass road through the CBD has been a major success, but it was a critical decision to be made at the time. We are now again at a point where

a very critical decision has to be taken as to whether we are going to support the Retail Africa development on the R43 or not. In coming to such a decision there are two approaches – the negative and the positive. The negative one usually comes with a lot of emotion and mostly with arguments which don’t always make sense. A positive approach tends to meet the challenges and find solutions. In looking at this new challenge there are a few very important issues to consider, namely: 1. We must accept that the developers of this project have done their homework very thoroughly and would not be prepared to make such a big investment in our community if that were not the case. 2. As mentioned above, with the growth of population which will continue to take place, we need to create jobs and business opportunities which this development will definitely do. 3. Communities like Fisherhaven, Hawston, Vermont, Onrus, Sandbaai, Mount Pleasant and Zwelihle will definitely welcome this development. 4. We are experiencing traffic con-

11

gestion on the R43 and have noticed the difference with the road just recently upgraded, but with the growth of population this problem will always be there. A development like this can greatly alleviate this problem. 5. We all know that economic development and job creation contribute to a decrease in the crime rate. Having considered all this I personally think the business people of Hermanus are facing a huge challenge, but at the same time an opportunity to change the CBD into a world-class shopping mall, to provide extra impetus to the tourist trade. I therefore strongly support the Retail Africa development. The upgrading of Swallow Park and the taxi terminus are in dire need of attention and could form part of this whole new approach. This to me will be a much more positive stand and will contribute to creating Hermanus as a major tourist attraction. It could even be considered to approach Retail Africa for a financial contribution for the upgrading of the CBD.

his tonsils removed. Then, when my husband fell off a roof at work, which resulted in him being taken to the Mediclinic Hermanus and not receiving sufficient treatment for his injuries. I phoned the ambulance service to please take him to the Hermanus Hospital, where he received such good care from all the staff and doctors.

We as a family are truly grateful and appreciative of the care that was given. You do so much for so little, and have to put up with so much. Finally, when I as a wife and mother was under so much stress, you reassured me and made me trust that all will be well – and it was.

Herfsweer is op pad Ons het Woensdagoggend die eerste tekens van ’n koeler weer aan’t kom op die horison suidwes van Walkerbaai gesien. Maar die wolkies was slegs van ’n flouerige front wat aand se kant so 200 km suidwes van die land opgebreek het. Die geheelpatroon vertel meer van koeler weer wat op pad is want die warm 20 °C oostewind het teen die aand se kant suid-oos geswaai en die wolkies het dikker geword. Die vraag was toe seker op almal se lippe; wat gaan die weer die naweek met sulke wolke maak? Die maan moet betrek word. Die sekelmaan is aan die uitkom en daar is min lugverplasing, wat teen die aand se kant (Donderdag) toelaat dat die temperature na 27 °C verhoog. En die wolkies groei met die bietjie aanmoediging van konveksie uit die see, wes van ons. En siedaar, die stadiger windjie oral, word ideaal vir die flou frontjie om die bietjie wat hy het, te behou en op te bou vir ’n bietjie nattigheid wat hy terug kan stuur aarde toe. Daar sak dan ook vroegaand so ’n halwe mm uit en as ons Saterdagoggend wek en strek en oor die tuintjies uitkyk, glimlag Moeder Natuur saam met ons oor die buitjie wat deur die nag uitgesak het. Maar dis nie veel meer as ’n ligte bui van so rondom 2 mm nie. Die flou front bou egter nog woema op vanuit die suidweste en in die namiddag (Sondag) val nog ’n halwe millimeter. Die naweek is vir die meeste besoekers en sakemanne dan verby en

niemand sal kla oor nog so 2 mm wat deur die nag uitsak nie. Die res van die week wat voorlê is heel sonnig en geniet ons byna perfekte herfsweer. Weerhaan het die afgelope week ’n vraag van ’n bejaarde leser gekry wat vra waarom sy buurt se honde saans so te kere gaan wanneer die weer sleg is. Het hulle skerper sintuie wat hulle teen iets waarsku? Die antwoord is nee, en gedeeltelik te vind in die wakker 89-jarige Ansie van Wyk wat in slegte weer nie deur ongewone geluide geflous is nie. Sy’t geweet as die wind sterk is soos die afgelope dae oor die Overstrand, maak inbrekers gebruik daarvan om die geluid van glas of hout wat breek te verbloem. Vir mense se ore is dit vaag en soms verbloem, maar honde laat hulle nie bluf nie en blaf. Honde wat in slegte weer blaf moet “ondersoek” word.

Mall – redesign CBD to offer tourists more We were able to attend the public meeting in the Whale Coast Hotel some weeks back, and have been astounded to see that almost all the letters published since then have been against the proposed mall development – despite the fact that there was considerable support for the development, in numbers, at the meeting, if not from the speakers addressing the meeting. We are home owners of German origin and as such are looking forward to the mall, as an opportunity to be able to purchase, locally, items that are just not available to us in Hermanus at present. This necessitates very costly trips over Sir Lowry’s Pass on a regular basis to purchase them in Somerset West. We also feel that tourists arriving from Europe et al, need something more to do than just have dinner in the evenings and then go off to bed. Hermanus dies after 21:30 which is not what European tourists are used to back home – and is what is required if they are to be persuaded to come back again to spend their money. This is what the CBD should be re-designed to offer.

When one sees the cruelty sometimes experienced by animals, what a pleasure and joy to see a young fellow walking three Yorkshire terriers past our house on the way to Onrus beach. He picks up the dogs and carries them on his shoulders when they are tired, kissing them and talking to them all the time. These dogs absolutely adore him. He calls them all by name and they respond to him. This is what I call good news, and something to enjoy, as opposed to news about corruption, strikes etc. I quote Gandhi: “A nation should be judged on the way it treats its animals.”

WALTER AND SISSI JESSEN

At about 16:00 on Tuesday 18 February, we refuelled at Hermanus Auto before leaving for Somerset West. I stupidly drove off with my wallet on the car roof. The catastrophe was only realised when we arrived in Somerset West, whereupon I desperately tried to resolve the situation. I phoned the Hermanus Police, without much hope, but was delighted by their polite response and the news that my wallet had been handed in. It was completely intact. Hermanus Auto had, in the mean time, kindly reviewed their CCTV footage which revealed two youngsters picking up the wallet. They were Sinethemba Magqirha and Asiphe Debeza, both learners at Qhayiya Senior Secondary school in Zwelihle. In an age when we tend to view others as corrupt and inefficient, it was heart-warming to encounter such honesty and caring.

Main Road: Business as usual All businesses on Main Road in the CBD are trading as usual after the road was re-opened two weeks ahead of schedule on Friday 14 February following the resurfacing of the road. After road works started on 15 January the road was scheduled to be finished at the end of February, but due to excellent planning and co-ordination together with the weather playing along nicely, Mayor Nicolette Botha-Guthrie could declare Main Road open two weeks early. Main Road now has three pedestrian crossings, plus a drop & go zone

for tourist buses. Manager at KFC, Malwande Mondile, says they are very happy with the upgrade. “There is really a big difference and I’m glad that business is back to normal again, especially two weeks ahead of schedule.” Jaco van der Merwe, manager at Seeff Properties, says it’s amazing to experience the difference. “We are extremely happy that everything is running smoothly again. Also well done to the municipality, because I don’t know of many munici-

palities that could have done the same in this time frame.” An employee at Walker Bay Art Gallery, Alison Dunsdon, also feels that the re-opening two weeks early was a big bonus for business owners. “People can park their cars again and they don’t have to walk long distances to visit the shops.” In Main you will find everything from restaurants, clothing stores, galleries, property companies, jewellery stores and much more. So visit Main Road in the Hermanus CBD and feel the difference.

A drop & go parking zone for tourist buses.

Top 10 tips for managing your finances 1. Keep track of your monthly spending: Many people do not know how much they spend each month on food, clothing, housing, or entertain­ ment. Whether you are paying with cash, a debit card or credit card, total your expenditures at the end of the month to gain a better picture of how you’re spending your income. 2. Develop a household budget you can follow: Using the data you’ve compiled by tracking your monthly expenses, develop a realistic budget so that it’s easier to live with. Track how well you follow it each month – that means continuing to track your monthly expenses. 3. Be sure to budget for savings: Your savings are a Rainy Day Fund, which is impor­ tant when unforeseen expenses or emergencies arise. Be sure to budget apart of your monthly salary for a deposit into a savings account – ideally at least 10% of each salary. If you find or earn extra money, put that away in a savings account, too. 4. Pay your monthly bills on time and avoid late charges: Take inventory of your regular monthly bills and make reminders for yourself on when each bill is due. That way you can avoid costly late fees, which can also damage your credit record. The best ap­ proach is to pay bills as soon as they arrive. 5. Stay away from loans: Loans are the same as credit cards. They might seem like a good idea at first, but when you get the bill you gasp at how little money you’re going to have left once you’re done paying off the balance. The only productive loans are for cars and homes. 6. Purchase needs rather than wants: Retail giants are experts at convincing us we need a material possession we could go the rest of our lives without. A need is an item that’s essential to

someonestayingalive,suchasfood,waterandshel­ ter. iPhones and iPods are cool, but you’re not going to die if you leave the newest model sitting at the store. Limiting the amount of times you purchase wants is essential to financial success. A lot of people go under as a result of their massive amounts of retail debt. 7. Eliminate credit card debt: Credit cards can make it easy to pile on debt. If your debt is adding up faster than you can pay it off, you’re likely living beyond your means. Stop using the credit cards and pay off existing balances – the sooner you do, the less you’ll pay in interest. Remember: not all debt is bad; taking on loans for higher education or to buy a home is really an invest­ ment in your future. 8. Take advantage of free money: If your employer offers a contribution for retirement savings or health savings accounts, be sure that you’re contributing enough to obtain the maximum amount. Otherwise, you’re missing an opportunity for free money. Maximizing your contributions can lower your taxable income. 9. Assess your insurance policies: Insurance is an important tool for protecting against financial hardships, and the premiums you pay can be one of your top household expenses. Talk with your provider to be sure you have the appropriate level of protection – that way you’re not paying too much for coverage 10. Look forward to retirement: This is a journey you and your partner are going to take together. Once you have that vision, you can map out the strategies that are going to help you get there. The key is to start early. The earlier you start, the more comfortable you will retire. And to ensure your loved ones are looked after, make sure your will is up to date.

Enhance your walking pleasure Hermanus is a walker’s paradise. The scenic beauty is incomparable and there are dozens of walks, both casual and spontaneous to more challenging and organised, to choose from. The Cliff Path Management Group has produced a new brochure about the famous Hermanus cliff path. It describes the superb experience of walking the 10,7 km distance from the New Harbour in the west to the Scout Camp gate in the east. In order to plan one’s walk, it provides a detailed map with distances between points and cumulative distances from the start. It also lists the mammals and birds that can be spotted on the walk. Wheelchair and pushchair sections are highlighted, such as the entire Westcliff area, the village seafront sections and the section between Kraal Rock and Kwaaiwater. There is a section on whales and how to get the most out of watching them in the brochure and a short history of Hermanus and the cliff path lends further interest. Information is also included about Hoy’s Koppie, which, like the cliff path, is part of the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. The walk

She embarked on her journey on 30 January, and will be performing at Creation Wines on the Hemel-enAarde Ridge on Saturday 1 March, in the tasting room at 17:00. Chapman is doing this in association with Kwanele- Enuf is Enuf and the Epic Foundation. “As a South African woman I am constantly reminded of the dangers that I face in a violent society, where mutual respect seems to have disappeared amongst our fellow citizens. “As a musician I can contribute my voice to the pursuit of a South Africa where women, men and children can pursue their dreams without the threat of violence. Where perpetrators are brought to justice and victims are treated with kindness and support. I will spread my message through music!” Says Carolyn Martin, co-owner and marketing director of Creation wines: “We are proud to be involved in this worthwhile campaign. The Creation team have all pledged to donate both their time and money in support of Natalie.” To book: contact Salome on 072 593 2917 or salome@creationwines.com.

New 2014 Sportage. More surprising than ever.


Brutal Power coming Knysna’s way this May QUICKPIC The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb is once again earmarked to be the highlight of the year for Garden Route motoring enthusiasts – and prove yet again a powerful magnet in May for motor sport competitors and fans throughout South Africa. So popular was the event in the past that Jaguar announced that it would be headline sponsor of the event for the next three years. The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb extravaganza takes place on the challenging hill up to Simola Golf and Country Estate from 16-18 May and will again comprise the popular Classic Car Friday, followed by Saturday’s practice and qualifying runs for the eagerly anticipated King of the Hill feature event on Sunday. Cars eligible for the Classic Car Friday event will fall into six classes, which will ensure there is a place for everything. Pre War cars will strut their stuff in class H1, with H2 and H3 being for pre 1966 and pre 1975 road cars respectively. Pukka racing machinery

split into the same cut-offs will be in classes H4 and H5. Re-created cars, often mistakenly called ‘replicas’, will fill class H6. The cars competing here conform to the original silhouette, but have modern running gear, which makes them as fast as modern racing machinery. Spectators and drivers attending Classic Car Friday are encouraged to wear period dress to help create a true historic race meeting atmosphere. The organisers are offering prizes for the best-dressed male and female spectator on the day, which are definitely worth dressing up for. The modern big guns will get their first taste of the course on Saturday with practice for The King of the Hill contenders. In order to keep the event manageable, only 50 entries will be accepted for Classic Car Friday and 80 cars will be accommodated for the feature King of the Hill event. Entries close on 31 March and an on-line entry facility can be found at www.speedfestival.co.za. For more information: www.speedfestival.co.za or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ KnysnaSpeedFestival

KTM steals the show at round 1 national motocross championship QUICKPIC Saturday 8 February saw the South African national motocross championship get underway just outside Johannesburg at Terratopia Motocross Park. Hundred-and-fifteen riders lined up on the starting gates during the day showing how healthy MSA motocross is. KTM riders filled the podiums in all the heats with the Austrian manufacturer gaining a total of seven overall victories from the total of nine on offer. This fact bode well for registered riders of the KTM Pro Race Orange contingency who will all walk away with some great vouchers and prize money in the senior classes. The 50 juniors was a small class and was combined with the 50 pro class which saw Nate McLellan taking the overall win due to his consistent 2 for 2 performance. Nate was followed by Blake Young and Daaiyaan Manuel in second and third respectively, all on KTMs. The 65 cc class was one of the biggest on the day and probably one of the most exciting too. Camden McLellan was fast but couldn’t keep Jonathan Mlimi at bay and had to settle for second overall behind the

effervescent Brother to Joshua Mlimi. Third place home was another second generation motocrosser in the form of Ethan Segal, again a KTM whitewash on the podium. The 85 cc junior class was a smaller field but the action was by no means any less entertaining. Dalton Venter took the overall spoils followed by Cameron Durow who each shared a heat win. Cayle Dormehl brought it home in third overall, all three on KTMs. The pro-mini class saw another KTM pilot on the top step in the form of Marco DeVrye who won both heats. Dalton Venter showed his talent by bringing his KTM 85 home in third for both heats securing the last step on the podium. The ever popular 125 High School class was one of the biggest on the day. Nicholas Adams took both wins in convincing fashion taking the overall for the day with the next KTM rider, Joshua Mlimi, in fourth overall after a third and fourth in the heat races. The MX2 race was a BIG class with over 22 riders lining up at the gate and one third of them orange bikes. Team Fuchs KTM’s Kerim Fitzgerald had a great day in the saddle taking a heat win and a second in heat two behind the blisteringly fast Bradley Fenton also on a KTM. Un-

Kerim Fitzgerald had a great day in the saddle with a win and a second place in the prelimi­ nary heats. PHO­ TO: QUICKPIC

fortunately Fenton scored a zero in heat one hurting his overall result, but proved that he is a man to watch in 2014. Ross Branch, now a full-time Brother KTM pilot brought the 111 machine home in third overall for the day showing that his off-season preparation had paid off with fast

consistent lap times. The MX3 class saw Greg Aspinal ride well for his new KTM team and he clinched second in the Masters class, masking his title intentions known for this year. The MX1 class was stacked with talent and Kerim Fitzgerald had a

mixed day taking a win in heat one and a fourth in heat two securing him second overall for the day. Ross Branch closed the day off with a fifth overall in the premier class. The next round of National Championship by MSA will be held on the 5th of April in KZN.

Your car’s aircon is no fuel guzzler Ever heard the common myth that having your aircon turned on uses more fuel than opening the window? At most speeds, if the car window is open, the coefficient drag is enough to make your car work harder, thus using more fuel. In fact, it uses about the same amount of fuel as having your aircon turned on.

He was confiscated and Haws kept him in the animal hospi­ tal for two weeks. Five months later he is fit as a fiddle and in search of a new home as his previous owners are being prosecuted. Call 028 312 1281 to adopt.

CAMPHILL SPORTDAG: Die weer het mooi saamgespeel en Camphill Skool se sportdag Saterdag is goed ondersteun. Die reuk van braai was onweerstaanbaar, en boeri­rolle was verniet vir diegene wat aan die pretlope, trail runs en bergfietsritte deelgeneem het. Daar het onderskeidelik 62 deelnemers aan die bergfietsrit, 47 aan die trail run en 92 aan die pretlope deelgeneem. Corrie le Roux (Camp­ hill huismoeder) en haar helpers het reggestaan om uit te deel en ander eetgoed te verkoop. Sowat R28 000 is ingesamel. Agter by die braaidrom is Wayne le Roux en Boeta van Tonder.

Chris Loman, Ian Barron, Mercia Teubes en Marie Muirhead het van die heerlike weer Saterdag gebruik gemaak vir ’n spel Croquet.

Bev Angus, Carol Mann en haar dogter Kim het al die pad van die Kaap af gekom om deel te neem aan die 5 km stappie by die Camp­ hill Sports Challenge­dag Saterdag. Benewens loop, draf en bergfietsry was daar ook verskeie ander kin­ derpret­aktiwiteite.

Toe een kleintjie kop uitge­ trek het vir ry het Derrick Benzien en sy vyf­jarige Dea­ kin gewys dis glad nie nodig om skrikkerig te wees vir die ponies nie.

DOGS: Don’t count your chickens Kleinmond – The Ex-PoleDancer thought that with 42 points his only worry was arch-rival The Ex-UsedHouse-Salesman. When the latter came in seeing that he again would be the bridesmaid and not the bride, ExPole-Dancer sat smugly awaiting his prize. But then Jones the Veg came over the horizon to prove that “5 portions a

day” refer to sprouts and not Olaf or Cane. To add insult to injury, the Veg was not cut but the other two were. SAGA certainly moves in a mysterious way.

GOLD FOR LO­ CAL STUDENT: Alex Hanel (right), a student at Montessori Pri­ vate School in Hermanus, has only been receiv­ ing coaching since September last year. That, however, didn’t stop him from snatching the gold medal at his very first ever chess competi­ tion. At the first leg of the South Boland champi­ onships on 15 February at the Caledon Casino, Hotel & Spa, Alex won all five rounds in the u/14 category. A week later, at the second leg at Bredasdorp Primary, Alex won 4 out of the 5 rounds, putting him in a tie position with his competitor (both having an overall score of 9/10). This resulted in a very tense 5­ minute blitz play­off game where hardly any room for thinking exists, and where play­ ers have to think super­fast and rely mainly on instinct and skill. Alex proved to have the upper hand, awarding him the top position and qualifying him for Boland trials, to be played at Hermanus Primary School on 1 March. Alex receives coaching from Marius van der Westhuizen.

Hawston loses to Kleinmond by only three runs LLYLE TAIT Hawston Cricket Club travelled to Kleinmond on Sunday for a 20/20 over encounter. Kleinmond batted first and scored a respectable 113 runs in 20 overs. Hawston’s top

bowlers were Philip Olifant with 3 wickets for 23 runs in 4 overs and Heino Bailey with 3 wickets for 15 runs in 4 overs. Hawston’s top order let them down with the middle order producing the top scor-

ers. Johan Dowries (23 runs) and Dewan Hamilton (20 runs) scored the most runs. Hawston ended up agonizingly close with 110 runs, thereby losing the match with 3 runs. Hawston would like to thank all their supporters.

Trevor Quirk voer ’n on­ derhoud met Jovan Rebula ná hy ’n veld van 144 spelers getroef het in die kwalifiseringstoernooi vir die Sanlam SA Amateur gholfkampioenskap. Die hoof­houespel het Dinsdag begin en die finale SA Amateur­wenner word mô­ re (Vrydag 28 Feb) be­ paal. Rebula het sedert­ dien uitgeval.

Week van amateur golf CILENE BEKKER Die Sanlam SA Amateur-gholfkampioenskappe vind tans plaas by die Hermanus Gholfklub en die SA Amateur-kampioen sal môre (Vrydag 28 Feb) bepaal word. Altesaam 144 spelers het die weeklange toernooi begin, met ’n oefenrondte verlede Saterdag. Die 36-gaatjie kwalifiseringstoernooi is Sondag en Maandag gespeel en Jovan Rebula (16) van George was die wenner van die Proudfoot-trofee met sy rondtetellings van 70 en 66 (totaal 136), vir ’n 8 onder baansyfer. Hy het met voëltjies op die laaste twee gate sy naaste teenstander, Rosswell Sinclair (16), van Pretoria getroef. Sinclair se tellings was 69 en 68 (totaal 137), vir ’n 7 onder baansyfer. Rebula put sy inspirasie uit sy oom Ernie Els. Rebula vertel dat Els gereeld in Desember tyd by die familie deurbring in George en díe tyd saam motiveer hom om die jaar goed te begin. Teen druktyd Woensdag het die top 8 só gelyk: Louis Taylor wen Eddie Taylor;

Callum Mowat wen Dylan Naidoo; Zander Lombard wen Gerlou Roux; Thriston Lawrence wen Toby Tree; Andrew Light wen Jovan Rebula; Matthew Spacey wen Werner Ferreira; Fraser McKenna wen Jason Viljoen; Ewan Scott wen Teagan Moore. Rebula en Sinclair het uitgeval, maar Thriston Lawrence, die verdedigende SA Amateur-kampioen, was nog onder die top 8. Die top 64 spelers het Dinsdag met die hoof houtjiespel begin om die uiteindelike wenner van die Sanlam SA Amateurgolfkampioenskap te bepaal.

Thriston Lawrence (regs) van Nelspruit saam met sy pa (en caddie) Steven. Thriston is die verdedigende kampioen en was teen druktyd Woensdag nog onder die top 8.
