Skade aan ’n ruit

NOODIENSTE, onder andere mnr. Deon Broekman, ’n bekende nooddienswerker in Lydenburg en die omgewing het doodluisters voor die R&P Paneelkloppers se perseel gestaan toe hulle binne sekondes vir hul lewens moes koes. Tussen 02:00 en 03:00 Saterdagoggend het mense in ’n swart motor op hulle geskiet terwyl die motor verbygejaag het. Dit was stikdonker en as daar straatligte was kon dit baie gehelp het. Mnr. Deon Broekman het gelukkig kopgehou en vinnig die motor se registrasienommer neergeskryf. Niemand is beseer nie en die mans kon gelukkig later bevestig dat dit ’n vuurwapen was wat gebruik is. Die skietvoorval kon soveel anders uitgedraai het. “As daar iemand is wat iets teen Longtom Towing of Deon het, kom praat met ons. Vuurwapens het nog nooit iets opgelos nie,” het mnr. Roelf Castelyn van R&P Paneelkloppers gesê. Die Lydenburg SAPD het Dinsdag direk voor saktyd bevestig een dossier met twee klagtes van opsetlike saakbeskading is oopgemaak. Die swart motor se registrasienommer is by die SAPD ingedien en die saak word verder ondersoek. Indien iemand enige ander inligting het wat met hierdie saak betrekking het, word hulle versoek om die SAPD te skakel.

Goud wink in Brazil Michelle Boshoff “Ek gaan vir goud.” Dit was me. Rina van Heerden se woorde oor die feit dat sy gekwalifiseer het om Suid-Afrika in Oktober in Brazil te gaan verteenwoordig.

Sy het tydens die SA Meesters Atletiek Kampioenskappe, wat vanaf 26 tot 27 April in Oudshoorn plaasgevind het, vier goue medaljes gewen. Die items was 80m, 100m, 200m en 300m hekkies. Sewe provinsies was hier teenwoordig asook Zimbabwe. Heel beskeie onthou sy na die onderhoud dat sy ook 'n brons verwerf het vir die B-span aflos. Rina sal met “die hulp van Bo” genoeg fondse kan bekom om haar Brazil-droom te laat waar word. Dit sal dan haar derde wêreldkampioenskappe wees. In Miyazaki, Japan het sy tydens die Wêreld Meesters Atletiekkampioenskappe 'n silwer medalje vir die 400m hekkies en 'n brons medalje vir die 100m hekkies gewen. Met die Wêreld Meesters Atletiekkampioenskappe in Durban het sy twee vierde plekke ingepalm. Dit is duidelik dat sy tot groot hoogtes in staat is. By die SA Meesters het sy vir Noord Gauteng, 55-59 ouderdomsgroep, bewys dat hekkies nie haar 'baas' is nie. Sy is al van kindsbeen 'n top atleet en het gesê “God kry al die eer.” Sy is ’n atletiekafrigter vir die jong talent in die omgewing by verskeie skole. Rina se SA Kleure is ook weer aan haar toegeken wat haar spreekwoordelik 'n dubbelle Springbok maak. Rina van Heerden met haar Hopelik bly die goue medalje sertifikaat en trofee dat SA in Brazil nie net 'n droom nie. Kleure weer aan haar toegeken is. ’n Baie groot prestasie gewis.

Samewerking word versoek van boere met foutiewe Eskomrekening probleme NA vele besprekings per telefoon en op vergaderings (afgelope 2-3 jaar) het boere steeds nie aanvaarbare terugvoer vanaf Eskom ontvang met betrekking tot die hantering van boere se foutiewe Eskom rekeninge nie. Boere word nog steeds gedreig met oproepe en briewe dat hul elektrisiteit beëindig gaan word as die rekening nie betaal word nie. Nog steeds doen ons 'n beroep op al die boere dat hulle Eskom kontak om die probleem te rapporteer. ‘n Verwysingsnommer word toegeken wat as bewys sal dien dat die kliënt wel in dispuut is met Eskom en elektrisiteit nie gesny mag word tydens 'n dispuut ooreenkoms nie. Op hierdie stadium beplan hulle om NERSA direk te nader om as arbiter op te tree tussen die boer en Eskom. Boere moet Kallie Kliengbiel so gou moontlik in kennis stel van sulke gevalle in hulle streek. Alle boere met hierdie probleem kan mnr. Kallie Klingbiel skakel by 082 450 8849 of mnr. George Floyd by 082 928 4233 of georgefloyd@vodamail.co.za Die is nie net vir Transvaal Landbou Unie se lede nie maar vir alle boere

Family shocked to find that patient is dead T

The late Ms Salomie van Dyk (44)

he family of Ms Salomie van Dyk (44) was only notified of her death 12 hours after she had passed away. They were in shock when they realised she was already at Doves Funeral S e r v i c e s i n Lydenburg while

they were searching the Lydenburg Hospital for her on Saturday. She was treated at Lydenburg Hospital on Friday, transported to Rob Ferreira Nelspruit and died on her way back from Nelspruit in the ambulance. The telephone number on her file was that of a man and not one of her family members. That was the excuse the Lydenburg Hospital apparently used not notifying them. The ordeal of the Van Dyk, Du Preez family

started when Ms Salomie van Dyk was admitted to the Lydenburg Hospital on Friday. The doctor prescribed a CAT scan because she apparently sustained serious injuries after a fall. Lydenburg Hospital transferred her to Rob Ferreira Hospital in Nelspruit late Friday afternoon. “While Salomie was being transferred to Nelspuit we quickly went to get clothes at home and immediately drove through. When we got the Rob Ferreira told us that they were waiting the CAT scan and we could not see her. We decided to go and get something to eat and were back within an hour. The hospital however informed us that she was already in the ambulance on her way back to Lydenburg. We were so shocked but was glad that it could not be so serious if they took her back to Lydenburg,” said Mrs Lena du Preez, her sister-in-law. On Saturday morning Mrs du Preez and her husband, Johan went to Lydenburg Hospital. They wanted to find out if Ms van Dyk would stay there over the weekend and what her

condition was. A friend Mrs Wilna de Wet accompanied them. “The security was every aggressive and did not want to let us go in. Even after we explained we just wanted an update on Salomie's condition. We were not there for visiting hours, we only wanted information.” At last they managed to go into the hospital where no one knew of a Salomie van Dyk. They searched the hospital beds and shouted out her name frantically. At about 15:00 a sister came to them with a file and said she wanted to talk with them alone. At this stage they were told Salomie was at Doves Funeral Service in Lydenburg. She was taken there after dying the previous evening in the ambulance on her way back from Nelspruit on the Longtom Pass. No one informed the family. “We cannot even describe the shock and terrible grief we experienced. We had to go and identify her at Doves Saturday afternoon, while we thought she was lost somewhere in the hospital only moments before. This was

twelve hours after her death.” Ms van Dyk leaves her mother Mrs Hannatjie du Preez, brother Johan, her sister Ida Marx, family and friends. Her funeral will take place on their farm Naauwpoort, on the Sekhukhune Road outside Lydenburg on Friday. • A spokesperson of the Department of Health was emailed on Monday to respond but no feedback was received by the time of going to print.

No load shedding yet, but save power to help all users LOAD shedding has not yet been instituted by the Thaba Chweu Municipality. Residents were afraid that the power problems starting on Monday with the first cold weather was already load shedding when in fact it was system overload. TCM warns residents that they should take care with power usage and conserve electricity in peak times as per Eskoms nationwide request. . A load shedding schedule , if necessary, will be announced in the near future. Geestelike gawes werkswinkel / Spiritual gifts Workshop Kom ontdek jou geestelike gawes!

ewoonlik bestuur ek my ma se motor en dis dan wanneer die boetes inrol. Haar ek-is-'n-pensionaris-en-baie-jammerbrief is al regoor die land gepos vir vertoë. Die askies het boetes al met honderde rande verminder. Die brief is ’n kunswerk. Ek het ’n teorie oor hoekom ek so jaag. Let wel: net ek mag sê dat ek jaag. Bewaar julle siele as julle met my baklei daaroor. Die ironie is dat ek vir ’n koerant werk. En moet jaag om stories klaar te kry. Die leser moet vandag weet dat ek hierdie rubriek ure na spertyd geskryf het. Met permissie natuurlik. Want die tyd het uitgehardloop. So daarom is ek net eenvoudig altyd te haastig. Iemand het in die week vir my gesê: “Raak rustig!” Ek herhaal dit nou heeltyd in die stilte. Maar my musiek is partykeer so hard in die motor dat ek dit nie dan hoor nie. En dis wanneer ek begin jaag. Sies! Om te wag is nie hoog op my prioriteitslys nie. Stadige bestuurders ook nie. Betyds en laat is nie ’n grensgeval van vyf minute nie. Vyf minute later as op tyd, maak jou laat. Ons sing graag saam met Lukas Maree "die tyd gaan so gou verby, die tyd gaan so bitter gou verby." Michael Althusuler het ’n oplossing om tyd-weghol te keer: "Die slegte nuus is dat tyd vlieg. Die goeie nuus, jy's die vlieënier." Seker ómdat jy jou eie tyd mág bestuur, kan dit my so die herrie in maak dat ander mense die leisels uit jou hande neem. Het julle al opgelet dat mense wat gereeld laat is, baie meer plesierige Afrikaners is? Dalk is daar ’n les te leer. Hoe dit ookal sy, Arnold Bennette het seker die waarste gedagtes: "Die tyd is die onverklaarbare grondstof van alles. Daarmee is alles moontlik; daarsonder, niks.” Tyd het ’n vreemde ding in ons tyd geword. Skaars beweer party, te min. Jammer die boetes raak nie minder nie. Dink hoe moes Rip van Winkel na sy 100 jaar slaap gevoel het. Hy het seker gewonder, waar is die tyd heen?

Uit die Woord From the Word “You alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth”. Isa 37:16 Thought for prayer: Acknowledge the supremacy of God and the pre-eminence of Christ over all earthly powers.

OLD GRUMPY Collapse The collapse of all governmental institutions and parastatals is not new news. This is because of the ruling party’s policy of rewarding incompetent cadres with top and highly paid positions throughout government. The old National Party under Apartheid of course did the same. But there was one big difference. The old regime considered the requirements for the position, the expertise,

Die dames van die VLU Hibiscus tak het besluit om 'n bietjie ekstra vrolikheid by die Paasfees te voeg deur “funky” hoede met 'n paas tema te fabriseer en sommige dames se kreatiwiteit het geen perke geken nie. So het ons hoede wat deur vorige geslagte gedra is gesien nuwe lewe kry en ander skeppings wat nooit in daardie dae as hoed gesien sou word nie, het nou daardie titel gedra. Van links is mee. Marie Wilson, Christie Havenga, Sharn Tolmay, Van die dames, en Corrie van Greuning en Julie Human. dan veral me. Carina Sephton, het verder verstom met hulle fantastiese gebak. Nadat Mev Julie Human ons tydens die vorige vergadering touwys gemaak het met die versiering van koeke het 'n paar pragstukke hulle verskyning gemaak vir die tak se ope kompetisie. Na afloop van die vergadering het ons hekelnaalde en wol te voorskyn gebring en Mev Melitza Krugel het ons geleer hekel en van 'n paar patroontjies voorsien. Hopelik gaan ons binnekort met gehekelde skeppings kan spog! Daarna het Mee. Nora Myburg en Christie Havenga ons met heerlike verversings bederf. Indien u sou belangstel om saam met ons te kuier, ons vergader elke tweede Woensdag oggend van die maand om 9:30 by die NG Kerk Suid, Lydenburg. Groete Sharn Tolmay – skakelbeampte

Food Fair offers colourful celebration

Lene Nel as well as Ruhan and Donna Stander are serving customers from their Mexican stall.

T

he annual International Food Fair will once again be held on Friday, 31 May at Church Unlimited on the Barberton Road. The event has grown to become a colourful celebration of international cuisine that is very popular with patrons. Some 23 food stalls and three coffee shops will be available on the evening. Each stall will represent a country, serve its traditional food and some dress up in the national costume of that country. The portions are smaller so that patrons will be able to sample many different

styles of food on one night. Lowvelders are in for a real treat this year as they will be able to sample food from exotic destinations such as Mexico, France, Ethiopia, Italy, Madagascar and Malaysia. Some of the dishes on the menu include shwarmas from Israel, Dutch pancakes, Mexican tortillas, roti's, beef soy stir fry, Moroccan chicken with cous cous and old favourites such as Durban bunny chow and prego rolls. The now infamous crocodile on the spit is also back on the menu this year. Several local bistro's, chefs and bakeries will participate in the event again to add to the delectable variety of food available. Local bands and buskers will provide live music on different stages at the Fair. Through this International Food Fair, Church Unlimited loves to reach out to the community in a creative way and celebrate the goodness of God to the nations of the World. It is the ideal night out for the whole family. The new contemporary Youth Centre of Church Unlimited, catering especially for high school youth, will be open to the public at the Food Fair. Entrance is free and additional parking will be available this year. The first stalls will open at 17:30 but the event officially starts at 18:00 until 21:00. For more information contact Etienne on 082-447-3827 or 013-745-8006.

skills, qualifications and experience required and more often than not, they got it right. Whatever you say about the Apartheid Regime, its administration worked. The ANC however, considers only three things: Is the person loyal to the party, is the person black, and does the person have some sort of qualification? Skills and experience does not count. The limitations of the candidate do not count. And the result is they get it wrong most of the time. The Department of Labour is a case in point. The Workmans Compensation Fund has a backlog of years. They blame their IT system. How many new IT systems have they implemented, all to horrendous cost and to no avail?

What about Municipalities and Parastatals? The moment a MM or CEO is “skelm” and steals money, he / she is redeployed to an even higher position where they can steal more. The result is a total loss of continuity of service delivery and a loss of institutional memory and records. And millions wasted for mahala. The fact is, the ruling party has abandoned its mandate. Whether you talk about water and electricity, workmans compensation, or hospitals where you go to die, or a dysfunctional welfare system or collapsing education, the ruling party is actively making people poorer, sicker and less educated. It is plundering the country’s resources at an unprecedented rate. Even its army, once the most powerful in Africa, got overwhelmed by a gang! What a shame! It is time to say enough. We “whiteys” can not. The black majority must stand up and unite. They must vote for a competent administration, before it is too late.

Landrover celebrates 65 years THIS week Land Rover marked its 65th anniversary with a celebration at Packington Estate near Solihull, which was the testing ground for the original 1947-48 Land Rover prototypes through to the Range Rover development vehicles of the late 1960s and early 70s. In a nod to the company's rich heritage of military vehicles, a cake in the shape of the first Series 1 Land Rover, HUE 166 (nicknamed, inevitably, 'Huey') will be flown in by a member of the 'Black Cats' Royal Navy display team in a Lynx helicopter. The real HUE 166 will also be on display, along with more than 130 Land Rovers representing key milestones in the company's history and demonstrating their legendary versatility, the key to Land Rover's success ever since Maurice Wilks first sketched the layout of his goanywhere 'tractor' in the sand at Packington. Emergency service, military, expedition, royal and concept vehicles will be lined up alongside the current range - the Defender, Discovery, Freelander, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Evoque - as well as the new Electric Defender research vehicle and the world's first nine-speed transmission for a passenger car. And, of course, there will be a special-edition model to mark the occasion - the LXV (that's 65 in Roman numerals, Cyril), of which just 65 will be available in the UK but none, unfortunately, in South Africa. The Defender evolved from the original Land Rover in 1990 and this iconic family of utility vehicles - Land Rover Series I, II, III and Defender - has now sold more than two million. The LXV is based on the standard Defender 90 Hard Top, with a 2.2-litre diesel engine rated for 90kW at 3500rpm and 360Nm at 2000rpm, and a sixspeed manual transmission. It will be available in either black or white with contrasting grey roof, roof, grille headlight surrounds and fascia, special 16” Sawtooth alloy rims and LXV badging, along with an optional union jack at the rear. The full-leather seats have LXV-embossed front head restraints with special orange contrast stitching on the seats, steering wheel and centre storage compartment Pricing in the UK will start from £28 765 (R404 000). iol.motoring

New Range Rover Sport THE all-new Range Rover Sport has made its public debut at the New York Auto Show. This new addition to the Land Rover line-up is set to hit local showrooms in the third quarter of this year. Underpinned by Jaguar Land Rover’s all-aluminum PLA (Premium Lightweight Architecture) platform that also does service on the new Range Rover, the styling of this Range Rover Sport appears to be an amalgam of Range Rover and Evoque styling cues – the latter being especially evident in the taillamp treatment. The further raked roof line, deeper sheet metal on the flanks and shortened rear overhangs give the car a more dynamic air. Inside, Land Rover has aimed to create a luxurious, but sporty cabin with a smaller diameter, thicker steering wheel, vertical gear shifter, higher centre console, configurable mood lighting and more generous seat bolsters. The new Range Rover Sport is 62 mm longer and has an increased wheelbase (by 178 mm), but is still 149 mm shorter than the regular Range Rover. According to Land Rover, the Range Rover Sport has shed in excess of 500 kg in the transition between old and new. Two engines will be on offer at the time of the international launch; a 215 kW 3,0-litre SDV6 diesel unit and a 375 kW supercharged 5,0-litre V8 petrol engine. Drive is sent to all four wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Other engines will be added to the line-up in 2014. These include a TDV6 diesel with 189 kW, a 4,4-litre SDV8 that delivers 249 kW and a diesel hybrid that will be available to order in international markets. Land Rover claims performance numbers start at five seconds and that CO2 emissions numbers start at 194 g/km. A host of new and updated technology are included in the new Sport. These includes an adaptive dynamics system, featuring continuously variable dampers. On models with more grunt, a dynamic mode is included in the Terrain Response system. This system is combined with twin-channel dynamic response active lean control, a dynamic active rear locking differential and torque vectoring by braking, which transfers torque to the outside wheels during cornering to reduce understeer. There are also upgraded connectivity packages that allow the driver to stay connected to the car via an application on their smartphone. New to the Range Rover Sport is a digital camera system that offers lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition and automatic high beam assist. Kelly Lodewyks Carmag.co.za

Ons toets die VW Tiguan 2.0 Bluemotion 4x2 DIE Highlands Panorama Nuus het hierdie week die VW Tiguan getoets. Dit is na ons mening een van die mees onderskatte voertuie in die mark. Direkte mededingers is die Kia Sportage en Hyundai iX35, Nissan Qashqai en Nissan Juke en dit kan selfs vergelyk word met groter SUV’s. Die Tiguan se kompakte buiteafmetings is erg misleidend. Binne is dit ’n ruim voertuig, met uitstekende beenruimte agter en ’n redelike groot bagasieruim. Om te sê ek was verras, is ’n “understatement”. Ek was verstom. Daar is sewe modelreekse, drie 1.4 petrol TSI en drie diesel TDI modelle,en ’n vlagskip 2.0 TSI, met kraglewering wat wissel tussen 81kW en 155kW. Wringkrag wissel tussen 200Nm en 320Nm. Ons toetsmodel was die 2.0 Bluemotion Turbodiesel met 81kW en 280Nm. Op die pad was die bekende feit dat dit oor wringkrag en nie kilowatt gaan nie, weereens duidelik. Die 81kW klink min, maar met 280Nm trek hierdie SUV soos ’n bom! Kraglewering is egalig vanaf wegtrek tot by die (hoë vir ’n diesel) 5 000 opm rooilyn en die enjin raak nie gou uitasem nie. Beter nog, met die sesspoed handratkas wat seepglad skakel, draai die enjin net 2 000 opm teen 120 km/u en op 3 000 opm lê die spoedmeter op 180 km/u. In die regte wêreld beteken hierdie syfers fenomenale brandstofverbruik en die ritrekenaar het dit bevestig. Die Tiguan ry baie lekker. Dit stryk ongelyk paaie uit en skrik nie vir kleiner slaggate nie. Die enjin is doodstil, selfs onder harde versnelling en bulte maak bykans geen indruk op die voertuig nie. Skyfremme op al vier wiele is buitengewoon groot en as mens op spoed in ’n noodgeval op die pedaal klim, stop die Tiguan - punt. Stabiliteit op spoed is uitstekend. Tesame met bougehalte wat duidelik in ’n ander klas is en al die veiligheidskenmerke soos lugsakke rondom, behoort die voertuig uitstekende veiligheid te bied. Maar wees gewaarsku, die Tiguan is verbasend vinnig en mens moet jou spoed dophou. Wat luukshede, tegnologie en sulke dinge betref, is daar ’n groot aantal opsies beskikbaar en dit hang net van jou sak af, hoe jy hom bestel. Ons toetsmodel het ’n vollengte panoramiese sondak, raakskerm klankstelsel met agt luidsprekers, volledige ritrekenaar wat tot banddruk op elke wiel aandui, drie 12V kragpunte, klimaatbeheer, volleer, elektriese ruite en spieëls, en elke ding in gehad. Die groot verassing is dat alle modelle agter die konsole ’n geïntegreerde 230V wisselstroom (110W) kragpunt het. Jy kan dus jou skootrekenaar of DVD speler direk op hoofstroom krag laat werk. Hoekom doen ander vervaardigers dit nie? Daar is dagryligte, misligte, al die ruite het een druk op en af beheer, ook ’n saak wat ander vervaardigers na moet kyk en die paneelkissie is lugverkoel. Daar is ABS, EBD, ESP, EDL, BAS, ASR en “Hill descent control” op sekere modelle. Sleepvermoë vir geremde sleepwaens is in meeste gevalle meer as 2 200 kg. Die Tiguan is beskikbaar in 4x2 en 4x4 (4-Motion). Daar is parkeerhulp, kameras en DSG ratkasopsies beskikbaar. Ons toetsmodel se bestuurdersitplek was op ses maniere elektries verstelbaar en die stuur kan op en af en in en uit verstel. Kopstutte kan nie net op en af stel nie, maar ook vorentoe en agtertoe, onafhanklik van die rugleuning, wat baie gemaklik is. Al die gewone satelietkontroles is op die stuurwiel insluitend Bloutand en togbeheer. Daar is AUX in sokke vir die klankstelsel. Ek kan werklik nie dink aan ’n luukse of veiligheidskenmerk wat ontbreek nie. Prysgewys ding die Tiguan goed mee met sy kompetisie. Ek het min kritiek. Ek hou nie van ’n plekbespaarder noodwiel nie en die elektroniese handrem irriteer my. Gee my ’n outydse hefboom! Hierdie is egter in alle opsigte ’n uitstekende voertuig en skuif baie hoog in op my wenslys. Andre Coetzee.

Datsun to come in below Micra AS previously reported, Nissan South Africa plans to bring back the revived Datsun nameplate towards the end of next year. The company is yet to announce what model will be the first to wear the new Datsun badge, but recent reports speculate that a small hatchback will be the launch car of choice. Autocar India has reported that previous- and current-generation Micra styling and packaging will feature prominently in this hatchback, codenamed K2. It is expected to be about the same size as well as offer similar interior space. It will make use of the Nissan Micra’s 1,2-litre petrol engine, but will reportedly be more fuel-efficient because it will be lighter than the current Micra. The reveal is expected to take place as early as July. Autocar India also reports that a sporty version is under consideration. Carmag.co.za

Rubber roads? IF you are driven to distraction by the noisy road outside your house, this could be the way to a good night’s sleep. Recycled car tyres could soon be used to surface roads in the UK after a pioneering trial found they made roads quieter. One of the busiest roads in Scotland was resurfaced in 2012 with asphalt containing shredded rubber from old tyres.

Tests were performed on grip and skid resistance, with engineers reporting that the rubber road, on a stretch of dual carriageway between Perth and Dundee, resulted in a quieter drive. The surface i s a l s o m o r e environmentally friendly. Since 2006 EU rules have banned the disposal of tyres in landfill sites, leaving about 480 000 tonnes of recyclable shredded rubber EACH YEAR! Experts claim the road requires less maintenance and still allows for drainage, while tyre recyclers claim the technique will also save money because the new material is thinner than standard roads. Rubber roads were first built in the 1960s in the US, where today there are 20,000 miles of road made of recycled tyres. Rubber roads are also popular in China, Brazil, Spain and Germany. The technique has since been found to cut traffic noise by about 25 per cent. The asphalt is made by breaking down used tyres into rubber ‘crumbs’ which are added to bitumen and crushed stone, which are typically used to make asphalt.

Experts say it makes roads quieter because the rubber thickens the bitumen – the binding agent which keeps the crushed stones together – which allows the road surface to trap and disperse sound waves. The rubber material is also springy and absorbs sound. Reducing road noise could also save lives. According to the World Health Organisation, around one heart attack in every 50 in European countries is caused by chronic exposure to loud traffic. It can also cause mental health problems and hormonal imbalances. A spokesman for Transport Scotland said: ‘This adopts a sustainable approach in making the best use of resources available, by re-using an abundant waste material.’ - Paul Bentley / Daily Mail / iol.motoring.co.za

Ten Tips for First-Time Buying with Confidence Buying your first property is a process that can be fraught with confusion. This simple list will set you on the path to home ownership. 1. Save up for a deposit Banks are far more likely to approve your home loan if you have a deposit saved up. So as soon as you start considering house hunting (and preferably before), start putting away that extra cash. “Having a deposit saved up means that the bank doesn't have to take all the risk on your property, so of course they'll be more likely to approve your bond,” says Jenny Rushin, provincial sales manager at ooba, Western Cape. “Being strict about putting money away before you buy a home is also good practice for repaying your bond later.” 2. Manage your existing credit Your credit record is your most valuable asset when applying for a home loan. This means that you should have a record of paying back credit responsibly. “Sadly, the banks won't grant you a large credit amount until you've shown that you can be responsible with paying back smaller amounts, so get yourself a credit card, a store card or a bank loan and pay the installments on time,” 3. Get your paperwork in order The banks will require three months of your most recent bank statements, a pay slip, your ID and a proof of residence. You will also be required to fill out a document showing your income and expenditure. “Make sure you have a copy of all of these documents readily available for when you find that perfect home,” 4. Work out how much you can afford Rushin explains that a bank will work out your affordability based on your disposable income after deductions and expenses, but will not grant you a home loan for which the repayments are more than 30% of your gross monthly income. This can be mindboggling maths, so she advises using an affordability calculator like the one found at w w w . o o b a . c o . z a / h o m e loan/calculators/bond-affordability-calculator to work out your maximum home loan. 5. Be realistic Take a long, hard look at your lifestyle and make a list of the factors that will suit your needs. If you travel a lot, don't buy a house with a big garden that requires lots of maintenance. If you're going to be living alone, buy a smaller apartment in a better area. If

you're thinking of getting married and having kids in the next few years, buy an affordable house with an extra room, rather than an expensive apartment in the heart of the city. “Buying for the long term means that you won't have to go through the stress of house hunting and the expense of transfer again too soon,” “Even though it's important to get a foothold on the property ladder as soon as you can, think strategically to make sure you're making the right purchase.” 6. Run a credit check before you start Some companies or individuals don't follow the proper procedures for a blacklisting, so the first time many people find out that they've been blacklisted is when they apply for credit. “Every South African is entitled to a free credit check once a year, so find out what your credit rating looks like before you've made an offer on a home, when there's still time to do something about it,” 7. Do a lot of hunting before you buy Start house hunting a while before you actually need to buy to give yourself a sense of what you can afford and what compromises you might have to make. Use a comprehensive website, such as www.property24.com to get started and check out your options, then start going to show days. Educating yourself in this way means that when you see your dream home, you'll know if it's too good to be true or the real deal. “Houses are as varied as the people who live in them,” “You might have a very specific set of needs, but then find out that you're unlikely to find a house that has everything you're after. In the process, you might become aware of what else is important or what you can do without, so start looking early.”

8. Don't lose hope Buying a home – especially in the first-time buyer bracket – can be a little disheartening when you work out how much money you are going to have to spend and what you can actually get for that. Don't ever buy out of desperation, but rather wait for the right thing to come along. “There's something out there for everyone,Something will come along that suits your tastes and your budget, so don't lose heart. 9. Apply to multiple banks for your home loan Each bank has its own specific set of lending criteria. To improve your chances of getting your home loan approved in time, and of getting the best interest rate, submit your application to as many banks as possible at the same time. The latest ooba statistics show that 28.7% of ooba's applications that were declined by one bank were approved by another. 10. Use an expert originator to get you the best deal on your home loan Getting a home loan approved involves lots of paperwork, some of which can be very banks.

Lydenburg R1 296 000

confusing. It gets even more complicated if you take the advice above and apply to more than one bank. Because of this, it's a good idea to use the services of an expert originator, like ooba, to submit your application to multiple banks.

For the love of the game

On Saturday, 4 May , SACSSA (South African Christian Schools Sports Association), along with Entheos Christian School, hosted a Regional Archery Championship in Lydenburg. 32 Students from Entheos Christian School, Ermelo Christian School, Destiny Academy and Mpumalanga Home Schools participated. Entheos students who won medals include, U/11 Beunice Sutherland (Gold), U/13 Sharwyn Sutherland (Gold), U/13 Tharisha Pretorius (Bronze), U/15 Ronald Murdoch-Oats (Silver), U/15 Jaco Wessels (Bronze), U/19 Edward Leach (Gold), U/19 Leon Wessels (Silver). We would like to thank Laerskool Lydenburg for the venue, Hunters Association and SACSSA for their support and equipment, as well as those staff and students who travelled from far and near to attend this successful day. The attitude and behaviour of the children is always something to appreciate when attending or participating in an event hosted by SACSSA.

THE Winterveld Buffels faced Letaba the past weekend in Tzaneen on the showground's rugby field. It was a devastating game, final score 29-0 in favour of Letaba. The Buffels managed to to defend and keep their ground during the first half, 5-0, but they weren't a match for the Letaba team during the second half. The Buffels were short of three players for the game. Ohrigstad rugby club, who also played a team from Letaba, prior to the Buffel's game, helped the Buffels out with players. Needless to say, the Buffels didn't have any fresh legs on the reserve bench either. Thank you to Ohrigstad who made it possible for us to compete. I would like to thank Pick and Pay for the food, Xstrata Lions

Choose any of these smartphones and connect with our

Phase 2 Projects and Tyre Corporation for the beverages and to the Blue Bull Rugby Union for their contribution towards the travelling expenses. This was also our first game in the new rugby kit sponsored by Thorburn, and would once again like to thank them for their contribution. Our next game is on the 11th of May at Winterveld, where we will be facing Louis Trichardt. I would like to thank Mega Paints and 2YK for the paint sponsor to enable the marking of the field. We practise every Tuesday and Thursday at the Winterveld Recreational Club's Rugby Field, come and join us and assist us in becoming a sustainable rugby club to be reckoned with. (Charl van der Merwe, chairman of the club (Story by Mara Theunissen).
