Dorp ’n ‘dump’ Die dorp is ’n ‘dump’ word natuurlik met permissie geskryf, maar as daar na sekere areas gekyk word, kan mens nie anders as om te gril nie. Verlede week het die Highlands Panorama Nuus se voorblad getuig van die giftige gasse wat vanaf die asgate elke aand oor die dorp gewaai word. Bloot omdat vullis nie reg bewerk word nie. Om dan van die huidige water en kragkrisis nie eens te praat nie. Dis ’n heeltemal ander storie. ’n Leser, Jan van der Vlugt, het foto’s geneem van ’n paar areas wat hom pla. Of eerder wat hy nie kon miskyk nie. In Platinumstraat spuit die water uit ’n pyp wat lek, in Chroomstraat, Noordstraat en Fouriestraat is kragbokse stukkend. En die rommel lê orals langs die paaie. Dis al ’n ou storie, maar hopelik kry ons eersdaags ’n nuwe antwoord.

Verskeie kragbokse in die dorp Lydenburg, wat gebrand of gebreek, maar waarskynlik lewendig is.

Winter beïnvloed bloedvoorraad TERWYL die land gereed maak om iets te doen om ’n verskil te maak aan die lewens van ander op Mandeladag op 18 Julie, wil die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Bloeddiens (SANBS) die publiek aanmoedig om betrokke te raak by bloedskenking. Die huidige bloedvoorraad is op ’n kritieke vlak en insamelings is ook laag as gevolg van koue weerstoestande en skole en universiteite wat gesluit was. Insamelings het só drasties afgeneem dat daar nou slegs ’n

Ons vra dat die publiek elke dag as Mandela-dag sien en gereelde bloedskenkers word.

Foto’s van die skade soos in die Highlands Panorama Nuus verlede week. DIE Thaba Chweu Stadsraad is hierdie keer onskuldig! ’n Paar mense het n.a.v. die berig oor die pyp wat onder ’n huis by Tuscan Villas gebars het (sien laasweek 11 Julie se berig op bl 2 van die Highlands Panorama Nuus) navorsing gedoen en baie interessante inligting na my toe deurgegee. Die feite soos met dokumentêre bewys gesteun is as volg: 1. Die Stadsraad het destyds al opmeters en konsultante gebruik om kaarte op te stel van waar elke pyplyn, serwituut en alles onder die grond aangedui word. 2. Hierdie kaarte word gebruik wanneer dorpsbeplanning en nuwe ontwikkeling oorweeg en goedgekeur moet word. 3. Volgens die munisipaliteit se kaarte loop die pyplyn langs Ruiterstaat af, onder die spoor deur en suid teen die grens verby die plek waar Tuscan Villas vandag staan. 4. Tuscan Villas verskyn langs die pyplyn en is dus wettiglik korrek goedgekeur en gebou. Nie die Stadsraad of die ontwikkelaar het fouteer nie. 5. Vandag het ons Google Earth, wat nie destyds beskikbaar was nie. 6. ’n Hedendaagse satelietbeeld van Google Earth, op dieselfde skaal as die kaart, dui egter ’n klein verskil aan. Op Google Earth kan ’n versteuringslyn tans op die grondoppervlak waargeneem word. Dit is waar die pyplyn destyds gelê is. En daardie lyn loop onder deur Tuscan Villas en verskil van die lyn op die kaart! 7. Volgens hierdie feite is dit dus duidelik dat die destydse opmetings iewers verkeerd gegaan het en dit het heel waarskynlik tydens die kartering daarvan gebeur. Hierdie baie interessante stukkie geskiedenis toon dus aan dat beide die ontwikkelaar en die Raad in goeder trou en met die inligting tot hulle beskikking, Tuscan Villas korrek goedgekeur het, met die lyn op die grens. Baie dankie aan verskeie persone, insluitend mnre. Gideon Botes en Mossie Mosterd wat soos speurders te werk gegaan het om hiedie probleem na te vors en uit te wys. Ons kan dus niemand hier verkwalik nie. ’n Menslike fout is destyds begaan. Waar die Raad egter na my beskeie mening wel tans’n probleem blyk te hê, is met kundigheid en met die wyse waarop pyplyne leeg loop en dan weer hervul word. Niks kan bewys word nie, maar sterk vermoedens bestaan dat ontlugtingsprosedures nie nougeset en met versigtigheid uitgevoer word, wanneer watertoevoer herstel word nie. Dit het tot gevolg dat lug teen baie groot druk in die lyne opbou en iewers moet uitpop. Lesers word ook daaraan herinner dat latente foute op hulle eiendom verklaar moet word,

Kantoor Str 46, (Oorkant Pick ‘n Pay aflewerings), Lydenburg 076 623 9660

wanneer hullie die eiendom verkoop, aangesien hulle verantwoordelik gehou kan word daarvoor. Ek moet dus my huis se dak wat lek, of herstel, of dit verklaar aan ’n nuwe koper. Die Stadsraad het ook daarop gewys dat alle ontwikkeling en aanbouings van goedgekeurde bouplanne vergesel moet wees. Geen eiendom mag verhandel word sonder dat planne by die Raad beskikbaar is nie. Die ou “voetstoots” beginsel gaan nie meer werk nie! Andre Coetzee.

he Lelievlei Housing Camp from Lydenburg decided to help areas that were affected with the water shortage the past few weeks. They supplied water in a tank to residents from Kellysville and Mashishing to fill up buckets several times. Mr Frik Rousseau, Director of Lelievlei, said that this is also part of their Mandela Month outreach. Every citizen is urged to give 67 minutes of their own time to help someone or an organisation in need during June.

Lelievlei reik uit Met ’n watertenk agter op mnr. Frik Rousseau se bakkie, het Lelievlei die afgelope paar dae gehelp waar hulle kan. Dit was die inwoners se eie idee om water aan te ry na Mashishing, Kellysville en ander dele van Lydenburg, waar die water al vir weke af was.

n February 2013 the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) embarked on a process to biometrically register social grants beneficiaries with the aim of rooting out fraud and corruption. The closing date was set for 31 March 2013, which was then extended to the end of April 2013, by the Minister of Social Development, Ms. Bathabile Dlamini. SASSA would like to thank beneficiaries who heeded the call and responded positively to the process of re-registering for their social grants. The agency would also like to inform beneficiaries that the 90 days grace period for re-registration is ending in July 2013 and all grants not captured by then will be cancelled from the system. SASSA is aware that, for many beneficiaries, social grants are the only source of income and that was the reason why the extension of the re-registration process was set to July 2013, to allocate extra time for those who aren’t registered yet. As a result of unregulated deductions that were previously withdrawn from the beneficiaries accounts, SASSA wishes to notify beneficiaries that only one deduction of funeral policy will be allowed and the deduction will not exceed 10% of the value of the social grant amount, as permissible by the Social Assistance Act. SASSA has received complaints from beneficiaries about deductions which amount to more than the value of their grants. Such illegal deductions are perceived to be unlawfull and regarded as a criminal offence where perpetrators will face prosecution. SASSA services are free!

ie ou gesegde “I'm alright Jack” het vir 'n groep ouers betekenis gekry toe hul kinders (almal graad sewe) 'n LO opdrag gekry het. Die kinders moes tydens hulle skool vakansie twee ure gemeenskapsdiens doen. Die agt kinders het eenparig besluit die maatjies by Estralita het 'n bietjie kleur in hulle lewe nodig en van daar die idée om 'n slaapkamer te verf. Lindie Welgemoed het toe gou-gou ook agt splinternuwe duvet oortreksels gaan koop en Gerda van Heerden en haar dogter Jana het lelike palette verander in pragtige boekrakke. Die twee ure het toe ontaard in 'n hele dag en baie “thinners” was nodig om die kinders se gesiggies weer

Die Outoppie Skop gat

EINTLIK is die titel van vandag se storie verkeerd. Ek wil nie hierdie week iemand se agterent skop nie. Maar ek wens iemand kan my help dat ons die plaaslike ekonomie aan die brand kan skop. Die ekonomie is soos my eerste groot “scrambler”, ’n Suzuki DL 600, wat net nie wou “start” nie. Jy het jou watsenaam af gespook om die hoë kompressie enjin aan die gang te skop. Lydenburg se ekonomie is ook so. Ek weet die platinumprys

skoon te kry. Die woord het gou versprei en ander besighede het toe kontant bydraes gemaak om nog duvetoortreksels en verf aan te skaf. Baie, baie dankie eerstens aan Handre Swanepoel, Lennard Welgemoed, Bianca van Heerden, Romario Louw, Martin Alberts, Simone Joubert, Izak-Daniel Bezuidenhout en Leohan Plessers vir julle harde werk en ons borge R&P Paneelkloppers, Mega Paints, Gert en Andre Elektries, Farhad Essack, Hanna's, Lydenburg Konstruksie, Vodashop, Kay's Motor Spares, Coetzee Vervoer, De Graaf, Sami Ingeneurs, Kraaines en House of Linen. Ons hoop dat die artikel ander maatskappye sal inspireer om ook 'n kamer of twee te borg.

A well-dressed black gentleman has visited several businesses in Lydenburg saying that he is raising funds for an event to be held on Mandela Day. Food will be supplied at the taxi rank in Mashishing on this day. Sounds like a nice idea. What doesn't fit is that the receipt is made out in the name of Children Safety Home, NPO 067-509. The receipt book was filled with the names of at least 10 local businesses who had donated anything from R100 to R1000. We searched the NPO, registered to Creative-kidz Pre-school and day-care, Nelspruit, for which no reports have been submitted since 2010.

is af, die mynwerkers staak en dit affekteer ons handelsbalans, die Rand is swakker en die petrolprys is op, so ja, ons kry swaarder. Maar in Vadersnaam mense, waar ek kom in die dorp en met sakemense praat, lyk dit of ons begrafnis hou. Ons praat in fluisterstemme, met lang gesigte en somber gelaatstrekke. Waar kom die moedeloosheid vandaan? Is ons nie bekend as entrepreneurs nie? Is ons nie bekend as vindingryk nie. Wat van ons humorsin? Waar is al die “go getters” heen? Wat gaan hierdie “sak en as” houding jou baat? Nee man, staan op, maak jou rug reguit en chill so ’n bietjie. Probeer iets nuuts. Verf jou besigheid se voorportaal. Laat jou

sekretaresse vars blomme daar neersit. En ’n paar tydskrifte. Of ’n vistenk! Jy is nie dood nie! Jy moet eet. En aantrek. En petrol ingooi. En bande op jou motor sit. Plaas ’n kleurvolle gatskop advertensie by die Highlands Panorama Nuus. Mense sal dit sien en lus word om iets by jou te koop. En dit is juis die punt. Die prys van Persiese matte gaan nie jou ekonomiese verdriet verander nie. Maar as jy met Piet en Gert en my besigheid doen, gaan ons dit met jou doen. Promofeer jou produkte. Gee aandag aan jou kliëntediens. Sit ’n mooi girl met ’n minirokkie by jou ontvangstoonbank. Dit sal minstens ’n paar ouens laat glimlag en skielik het jy meer voete in jou besigheid. Sodra ons glimlag is die wêreld weer mooi en voor jy kan sê “ek kry swaar”, lyk dinge al weer beter. Niemand anders gaan jou help nie. Ons moet mekaar help. Kom, doen dit self!


Men put aprons on to feed 240 people The Mashishing Men’s League is an organisation that aims to uplift the community and help those that struggle through everyday life. On 5 July they put on their aprons and ran a soup kitchen for pensioners. The event took place at the Mashishing Hall. It was sponsored by Vodacom, Mini Cash & Carry, Coetzee Sand & Klip, Nick from Gas Refill and Madiba Bakery from Mashishing. Women were also part of the volunteers. This initiative was part of making a difference for Mandela Day on 18 July. The group consisted of different church denominations. This was the second time it took place and is an annual event in the community. .

Residents wait to show support R Michelle Boshoff

ESIDENTS from Lydenburg were at the Thaba Chweu Municipality on Thursday to show their support with electricity and water issues. Last week the ‘no water’ issue was on everyone’s lips as this was a catastrophe for many households. Some households were

without water for two weeks. A mass meeting was planned but not everyone showed up. The issues raised over the power and electricity are still being investigated and Thaba Chweu is working on it. On Monday the Municipal Manager, Mr Surprise Maebela issued the following

statement: Thaba Chweu Municipality acknowledges the assistance given by Super Way during the water crises. At one time, we had a belief that the problem was going to be solved in a day or overnight. Given the challenges that we faced during that process, our institutional resources were less than the work on hand. We were failing to deliver water at various

sections when our communities needed it. We want to thank Super Way for the support, providing water trucks. We hope that it is the beginning of a good relationship. On behalf of Thaba Chweu Municipality I want to thank you again for your support during this trying time, when our ageing infrastructure was failing.

Municipality thanks Super Way for help during water crisis Klere nodig in behoeftige gemeenskap van die Christelike Maatskaplike Raad (CMR). Me. Ethresia Van Staden van die CMR was baie in haar skik met die skenking en het gesê die behoeftes binne die plaaslike gemeenskap is geweldig hoog. Die plaaslike gemeenskap gaan gebuk onder allerlei maatskaplike probleme, armoede, verwaarlosing en geweld en die poel van “helpers” of “donateurs” is net eenvoudig te klein om almal te help. Die CMR, se leuse is “Diens met deernis” en hulle visie is “Om ’n Omvattende maatskaplike diens aan alle gemeenskappe te lewer ten einde hulle sosiaal, emosioneel en ekonomies te bemagtig” Lodge The Pilgrim is vanjaar 127 oud, Riaan Visser, Ethresia Van Staden (CMR) en Johan Beytell. wat dit waarskynlik die oudste DIE Vrymesselaars van Lodge kartonne klere aan die CMR organisasie in Lydenburg maak wat nog sterk staan en dit is hulle erns om ook ’n The Pilgrim op Lydenburg, het geskenk. bydrae aan die dorp se minder Dit was aan die Lydenburg tak op Vrydag 12 Julie vier bevoorregtes te maak.

Spoed is die geheim BNI Longtom Chapter (Lydenburg) het op 10 Julie ’n suksesvolle “Speed Networking” sessie aangebied by die Purple Gecko gastehuis. Sowat 20 lede en gaste het soos in “Speed Dating” elkeen een minuut gehad om sy / haar besigheid aan die persoon in die stoel teenoor hom / haar bekend te stel. Na die eerste minuut het hulle omgeruil en die ander persoon het sy / haar besigheid binne een minuut bekend gestel. Na die twee minute het gaste stoele geruil en een plek aangeskuif en is die proses herhaal. Sodoende kon 20 mense binne 40 minute elk ’n een-tot-een gesprek met mekaar

voer oor hulle onderskeie besighede. Tielman Nieuwoudt van IN2 Insurance Brokers (BVK Finansiële Dienste vir die Lydenburgers) het voorgesit. ’n Paar oudlede het kort spreekbeurte gehad en die gaste meer van BNI vertel. 10 Julie was ook die BNI Longtom Chapter se eerste verjaardag. Daar is genoem dat lede in die jaar deur positiewe mond-tot-mond bemarking byna 1.4 Miljoen Rand se besigheid tussen lede genereer het. ’n Klein kollekte is ook gehou ten bate van ’n verdienstelike persoon (Charity) in die gemeenskap. B N I Ly d e n b u rg v e rg a d e r e l k e Woensdagoggend vanaf half agt tot nege by Lydenburg Toyota, wat hulle opleidingslokaal vir die doel goedgunstilik beskikbaar stel. Besigheidseienaars wat belang stel kan gerus met Jurie Schoeman van JJs Connection Health Gym in Lydenburg skakel by 013 235 1539. Net een tipe besigheid per kategorie word toegelaat om interne kompetisie uit te skakel. Daar is plekke oop in verskeie kategorieë soos prokureurs, boekhouers, dokters, tandartse, motorhandelaars, motorfietshandelaars, koffiewinkels, restaurante, skryfbehoeftes, IT en vele ander, maar jy moet gou speel, anders neem iemand anders dalk daardie gaping op. Skakel gerus met Jurie om uit te vind of daar ’n plek oop is vir jou tipe besigheid. As jy meer wil weet van BNI, gaan Google dit gerus. Andre Coetzee.

Swan's Race to gold O

NE of the Spitzkop diggers was particularly famous. He was an individual named John Swan. He had made a rich strike somewhere near Spitzkop, but always kept it a close secret. Working on his own at night, he contrived to recover enough gold to finance his own activities, although he had to take his ore some miles to water. Swan's strike was apparently on a comparatively dry piece of ground. His great ambition was to lead water to the place, and so

work it with profit. The nearest water supply was on the farm 'Olifants Geraamte', many miles away. Around the year 1878, Swan started to dig a race to lead water from this farm to his strike. Mile after mile he dug and blasted his race, laboriously following the contours through the most rugged country and avoiding gorges and faults in what must have been a nightmare of planning. Then, like a bolt from the blue, the French company Messrs Guilband & Co obtained their concession over Spitzkop. Swan's race, by then, after four years' work, was about two-thirds finished and about sixteen miles long. He had hoped to complete it by 1886. Now all his hopes collapsed. The company offered him some compensation and a twenty percent interest if he would show them his strike. He refused. Like most of his fellows, he felt that he had been cheated out of a fortune by the monopolists and concessionaires.

In bitterness of soul, he packed his belongings and abandoned his treasured strike and his water race, the most famous ever made by any digger. He removed to the Kaap Valley and prospected with James Simpson. All he found, unhappily, was death. Fever caught him. When he lay dying, Simpson begged him for the secret of his strike. John Swan just gritted his teeth and turned his face to the wall. ' It's good,' he muttered,' It's rich, but it's deep, They'll never get it.' That was the end. His strike was never found. The race still remains, a seemingly endless trench meandering around the hills, and reaching a disconsolate end within a stone's throw of the modern road down Ross Hill to the town of Sabie.

Ingwe Leopard Project Report INGWE is an independently funded research project with the aim of gathering data on the density and behaviour of leopards (Panthera pardus) outside formally protected areas (National Parks and Nature Reserves). The Lydenburg Magisterial District is known for quite a significant amount of leopard activity and is the centre of Ingwe research. Out of the 56 cameras to date the total number of cameras working properly at present including the old cameras, the three donated for use by Reading University and the 2 OTS cameras is 32. Each camera position has been given a code which will be used to identify the location on further reports and data collected. The total number of cameras used in the field this month is 36; 4 are on Luan Lombard's property to assist with a problem leopard. Comprehensive data is available from the researchers.

Ons toets VW se Touareg VOLKSWAGEN se Touareg is die maatskappy se vlagskip voertuig in Suid Afrika. Hierdie premium SUV ding mee teen voertuie soos die BMW X5, Discovery en Landcruiser VX. In terme van kraglewering, tegnologie en toerusting is dit ’n trap bokant Toyota Prado. Vier variante van die Touareg is beskikbaar nl. 3.6 V6 FSI (petrol) en drie diesels nl. 3.0 V6 TDI Bluemotion, 3.0 V6 TDI Bluemotion met “Terrain Tech” (“low range” en hoogte verstelbare veerstelsel, met twee ewenaarslotte), en die bul 4.2 V8 TDI. Ons toetsvoertuig was die 3.0 V6 TDI Bluemotion, met o.a. stop / gaan tegnologie. Al die Touaregs het permanente 4x4 (4-Motion), maar as jy regtig die bosse wil in, soek jy die een met “Terrain Tech”, omdat hy bykomend oor ’n laestrek ratkas en sluitewenaars in die middel en op die agteras beskik. Al die Touaregs kom uit met die 8-spoed outomatiese ratkas met tikfunsie, soortgelyk aan die ratkas op die top Amarok. Hierdie voertuie is gelaai met elke denkbare luukse en veiligheidskenmerk. Ek noem hulle nie eens nie, want die spesifikasielys is amper vyf A4 bladsye vol fynskrif. Gaan kyk gerus by Highlands Volkswagen. Dink aan ’n afkorting of ’n plek vir ’n lugsak en hy is daar. ’n Paar goedjies het my baie beïndruk: Dubbel sonskerms vir voor en na die kante vir die bestuurder en passasier. Die beligting om die smukspieëls in die sonskerms loop om die spieël en is perfek. Die klankstelsel is wonderlik met 8 luidsprekers, 6-CD wisselaar en iPod in. ’n topklas 12-spreker stelsel met ekstra versterker deur DynAudio is opsioneel beskikbaar. Van opsies gepraat, dit wat jou Touareg nie in het nie, kan jy opsioneel kry, soos vollengte sondak, nappa leer, elektriese wegvou sleepstang ens. Die middelkonsole het ’n dubbeldeksel wat links / regs onafhanklik werk. Daar is dubbelsone klimaatbeheer, togbeheer, Bloutand, raakskerm info stelsel, ritrekenaar met banddruk monitering (opsioneel), lugverkoelde paneelkissie en elke ding. Die Bestuurdersitplek het drie geheuefunksies vir die elektriese verstellings en is verhit / verkoel. Dit is ook nie nodig vir die bestuurder om al die deure elektries te ontsluit as ’n agterste passsier wil uitklim nie, want elke deur het sy eie onafhanklike kontroles. Daar is ’n ekstra 12V kragpunt in die konsole en ’n 230V wisselstroom punt agter op die konsole vir jou skootrekenaar. Die luikrug agterdeur werk elektries en sy hoogte kan gestel word vir die persoon se gemak en lengte. Soos ek sê, die Touareg is gelaai. Op die pad is hierdie ’n perd van ’n ander kleur. Die TDI V6 maak ’n allemintige 180kW se krag met 550Nm. (3.5 ton sleepvermoë) Dit versnel van 0 tot 100 in net oor die sewe sekondes (onthou die Touareg weeg amper 3 ton) en het ’n topsnelheid van 218 km/u. Van Laske Nakke se brug af, opdraend het ek bo-op die bult 190 gesien. Verbysteek gebeur in ’n oogwink. Remme en stabiliteit is skitterend. Die enjin is doodstil en die 8-spoed ratkas skakel so soomloos oor dat jy na die rekenaarskerm moet loer om te sien in watter rat jy is. Waarvan hou ek nie? ’n 4x4 SUV behoort nie ’n “mariebiscuit” spaarwiel te hê nie. Persoonlik vind ek ook die buitestilering ’n bietjie konserwatief, maar dit is juis waarvan kopers in dié klas hou. Anders as dit en alles in ag genome is die VW Touareg ’n fantastiese voertuig in alle opsigte. Dit skuif nou na heelbo op my begeerlys. Andre Coetzee.

Check out the WOW website WOMEN ON WHEELS (WOW) is a motoring magazine written by women, for women, that comes out with SA’s leading women’s magazines – Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, O, The Oprah Magazine and House and Leisure. Don’t miss this year’s issue, on sale from 17 June with the latest car reviews, Women’s Car of the Year Awards and exciting motoring events. Women worldwide have just voted for their Car Of The Year (COTY). Their verdict? The Ford Fiesta, specifically the model with the massively innovative 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which has been named overall winner of the 2013 Women’s World Car of the Year award. The vehicle was launched in South Africa in February this year and, as WOW editor Charleen Clarke comments, the Fiesta is a star on all fronts. South Africa is a particularly price sensitive market, both when it comes to the purchase price and the running costs of cars. But South Africans also adore brands that they know and trust. As such, the new Ford Fiesta, specifically with its EcoBoost engine is already finding massive favour with motorists in this market, she reveals. Clarke says that the Ford brand has long been well known and much loved in South Africa. Now, of course, it is comes with the Fiesta’s sensational styling and SYNC technology, the surprisingly good performance of the EcoBoost engine (the 1.0-litre motor will amaze even the most jaded of motorists) and superb economy. This is an unbeatable combination, she contends.

Kia wins quality award KIA receives top ten ranking for initial quality in 2013 JD Power and Associates study. J.D. Power and Associates' 2013 Initial Quality Study (IQS) has ranked the Kia Soul and Kia Sportage as leaders in the Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle and Sub-Compact CUV segments, respectively, in the U.S. And, for the first time, Kia ranks among the automotive industry's top 10 nameplates for initial quality. The 2013 Soul ranked first in the Compact MPV segment for the second consecutive year, and the Sportage tied for the highest ranking in the Sub-Compact CUV category. “Kia Motors is committed to building vehicles that are defined by award-winning design, fun-to-drive performance and worldclass quality, and the Soul and Sportage epitomize these attributes,” said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO, Kia Motors America (KMA) and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG). “Achieving top-ten status within the industry reflects THE annual Rouge Rally came through Lydenburg a few weeks ago.

New Mazda 3 on the way Remember the Wildevy THE third-generation Mazda3 has shown its sculpted body to the world and it promises to be a far more serious contender in the Golf class.

Mazda is only showing us the hatchback for now, but promises that a fourdoor sedan is on the way. Likely to be perceived as far more stylish than its predecessor, the new hatchback fully embraces the so-called 'Kodo' design language that's already made its mark on the latest Mazda6 and CX-5. A similar inheritance takes place beneath the surface in the form of Mazda's 'Skyactiv1' components and manufacturing techniques that aid efficiency. The latest version of Mazda's best-selling car is practically all-new from the ground up and sits on a wheel base that's been stretched by 61mm, although the length of the hatchback has been reduced by 46mm. Following segment trends, it sits slightly lower to the ground. Despite its body being 30 percent stiffer, the new 3 is up to 90kg lighter than its predecessor.

4x4 family day - 27 July. Henri Alant and Handrè LIVE at Buffelsvley. Henri Alant known for his hit single, Cupid, is going to join forces with up-coming star Handrè Visagie to host a charity event at Buffelsvley Guest Farm on the Friday before the 4x4 event on 26 July 2013. Funds raised during this event will be donated to the Wildevy 4x4 Family day. You can look forward to an evening filled with good old Rock and Roll, Country, Pop, Afrikaans and folk music. Songs that will be covered range from U2, JoeF, Theuns Jordaan, Kings of Leon, Smokey and Mumford & Son's – to mention a few. The show starts at 8pm to 12pm and there will be a cash bar and food for sale. Tickets are available at R30 per person and will be on sale at the door as from 7pm. For more information you can contact Buffelsvley Guest Farm on 072 426 7535.

The engine range will depend on which country you're in, but the full global line-up includes three new Skyactiv-G normally aspirated petrol engines and a Skyactiv-D turbodiesel. The petrol line-up kicks off with a 74kW 1.5-litre, before moving on to a 116kW 2-litre and a 137kW 2.5. The 2.2-litre oil burner is good for 110kW and 379Nm. Japanese customers will also have the option of a hybrid model, which Mazda has yet to unveil. The Mazda3 will be available with a choice between manual and automatic transmissions, both sporting six forward gears. The new C-segment contender promises efficiency gains - not only through engine technology and reducing the strain on the alternator via brake energy regeneration, but also through 'best in class' aerodynamics, helped along by an active air-shutter installed in the grille. Inside the car you'll find Mazda's all-new 'human-machine interface' system, based on the heads-up concept, as well as a pop-up screen similar to that found in the Audi A3. This is the window to Mazda's redesigned infotainment system that offers all the cutting-edge amenities, including internet-based apps. The latest suite of advanced driver aids is also available, including Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure W a r n i n g , F o r w a r d Obstruction Warning, High Beam Control, Radar Cruise Control and Smart City Brake Support. South African specifications will be revealed in due course. Ford SA tells us that the new Mazda3 is coming here, but cannot give us a time frame at this stage. iol.motoring. co.za An Authorized Financial Service Provider

Smart Metals? Is Holden in trouble? GENERAL Motors will use a smart-material actuator on its 2014 Corvette to open an air vent in the boot to allow easier closure of the lid by preventing an airlock. This is achieved by passing an electrical current through an alloy wire that contracts and opens the vent by operating a lever. This actuator not only saves 0,5 kg on a motorised unit, but also costs less. There are several other areas in which this technology can be employed because all modern vehicles have about 200 actuators, which could result in a 100 kg weight saving. Shapememory alloys, typically made of c o p p e r / aluminium / nickel or nickel / titanium, are smart materials that can change their shape, strength or stiffness when activated by heat, a magnetic field or electrical current. A shape-memory alloy remembers its original shape and returns to it when deactivated. Durability still needs to be proven, but we welcome any weight-saving technologies. Carmag.co.za

THE Australian government has vowed to continue backing its struggling car manufacturing industry amid reports that General Motors subsidiary Holden is seeking another big bailout package. The high cost of manufacturing in Australia and a strong local currency have made it increasingly hard for car companies to compete with cheap imports, leading Ford to announce in May that it will stop making vehicles in the country by 2016. Holden, which in April announced a plan to slash 500 jobs and which is one of two remaining major players along with Toyota, said it was doing “everything in its power” to secure the future of its local operations. Holden builds the Australian-designed Commodore, which has been sold as the Chevrolet Lumina in South Africa, although GMSA will not be importing the new VF range that was unveiled earlier this year. Yet whether there will be another generation subsequent to this remains to be seen. The company refused to comment on a report in The Australian newspaper that it wants an extra AUD 265 million (R2.4 billion) from the government to survive, on top of the AUD 275 million (R2.5 billion) it was promised last year. “We are in close and constant discussions with both sides of politics - at a state and federal level - but are not in a position to publicly comment on the details of those discussions,” a spokesman said. Industry Minister Kim Carr also refused to confirm or deny any future subsidy, but stated: “What I can say... is that the Labor government remains absolutely committed to ensuring we have a prosperous automotive industry in Australia.”

FREE....

He told the public broadcaster ABC that discussions with Holden were ongoing and confidential. The vehicle manufacturing sector employs more than 50 000 people in Australia with another 250 000 jobs in associated industries. But it has struggled, until very recently, with the Australian dollar trading near or above parity with the greenback for almost two years, squeezing exports and compounding rising production costs. - AFP - iol.motoring.co.za ED: Following on this, the phenomenal Ford Falcon GT is also a rare and endangered species. Ford and Holden form the backbone of the Aussie car industry. It will be a sad day if they fall by the wayside due to economic pressure. The V8 Ford Falcon GT (Fairmont GT) and the V8 Commodore / Monaro (Chev Lumina SS) are two great icons of performance or muscle cars.

Your bond has been approved. What happens now? YOU'VE found your dream home, made an offer, it's been accepted and your bond has been approved. It's all extremely exciting, but there's still a lot that has to happen before you can collect the keys and move in. The first thing that you need to prepare yourself for is that the next part of the process takes some time. “There is lots of paperwork and much communication between various intermediaries. The good news is that you'll have lawyers acting on your behalf, so all you really have to do is wait.” According to Ooba's statistics, it takes an average of 69 working days for your bond to go from Granted to Registered. The only action that should be required on your part is to pay the relevant costs, and sign the transfer documents and the bond documents. The bank that grants your bond will put you in touch with the attorney who will let you know what you need to do. A step-by-step explanation of the entire process is included

at the end of this article. Occupational rent: In some instances, a buyer might want to move in before transfer has gone through, and in others, the seller might still be living on the property when it has gone through. “In this case, the person in residence will have to pay occupational rent, which is agreed in the offer to purchase and calculated by the attorney on a pro-rata basis. This rent should always be paid through the attorney so that there can be no room for a misunderstanding.” If you, as the buyer, move in before transfer goes through, it is advisable that you hold off on any major renovations until the property is registered in your name. “It happens very rarely, but there have been instances where the transfer does not go through for whatever reason, and then the buyer incurs losses on renovations or repairs, so it's best just to wait.” Use the time to put money aside While you wait for the transfer to go through, the best thing that you can do is start putting money aside for your first bond repayment. “You can significantly reduce the amount you end up repaying on your bond by putting in more than you are required to pay each month. Once you're in a new home, ”

your extra cash will be consumed with getting your house in perfect shape, so while you have a break, try to save.” Moving in: Another piece of advice for new homeowners is that removal companies charge more at the end of the month than at any other time, so if you have any choice or flexibility about when you move into your property, try to avoid that end of the month crunch. “Buying a home is one of the most daunting and exciting things you'll ever do. Waiting until you can truly call the property 'mine' can be frustrating, but if you use the time to budget and plan, moving in will go a whole lot more smoothly.” From making an offer to property transfer – all the steps Step 1: You and the seller sign the offer to purchase. Step 2: The bank grants your bond and instructs the bond attorney to register it. Step 3: The seller advises the transferring attorney to transfer the property. The title deed and cancellation figures are requested from the bank at which the current bond is held, and a statement of rates and taxes is requested from the local authority. Step 4: The bond attorney tells the

Cancellation Attorney is asked to cancel the seller's bond upon receipt of a guarantee for the amount owing.

Rentia Beeslaar het hierdie foto ingestuur vir die Foto van die Maand Kompetisie. Die wenners word in Desember aangekondig. Stuur asb. inskrywings na michelle@highlandspanorama.co.za

Mnr. George Floyd is baie ernstig op soek na ’n ene mnr. Danie Roeloffze, wat sy hond by die Floyd’s se kennels afgelaai het. Dit was reeds op 26 Mei. Mnr. ‘Roeloffze’ antwoord nie sy telefoon nie. Mnr. Floyd het ook ‘Roeloffze’ se dogter gebel en daar is geen antwoord nie. Die registrasienommer van ‘Roeloffze’ se voertuig is DEV768MP. Mnr. Floyd gee nou al van Mei-maand af die honde liefde, kos en aandag maar die eienaars moet dringend opgespoor word. Daar is deesdae ’n tendens in Lydenburg dat honde net hier afgelaai word en die eienaars trek weg. Ons hoop dat dit nie die geval is met hierdie honde nie. Die honde is name is Wollie, Skoen, Elshadia en Butch en wil baie graag weet of hul eienaar ooit gaan terugkom. Hierdie is ’n baie dringende kwessie. Skakel asseblief vir mnr. Floyd by 082 928 4223.

The installation was made possible by Vodacom Millionaires; the popular game show flighted on SABC 1 on Tuesday evenings, which gives away 4 computer centres to schools every month and has, to date, installed 46 centres in schools in Mpumalanga alone.

number of challenges. The monthly donations of computer centres to schools across South Africa form part of Vodacom's commitment to support and upgrade the quality of education in public schools by ensuring that learners have access to ICTs and teachers have access to the highest quality teaching resources. “While a computer centre alone cannot meet all the needs of the school, Vodacom believes it can add real value when used as a tool for learning. The educational software and training provided to the teachers will ensure that the learners can use the computer centre to its full potential,” said Suraya Hamdulay, executive head: media-CSI and sustainability at Vodacom. The Vodacom Millionaires initiative, founded in 2005, is now in its seventh year and has recently begun a process of revisiting all the 286 schools that have received computer centres to date, to make sure that Vodacom Millionaires sustains and keeps the project updated. Vodacom Millionaires encourages all public schools that are in need of computer centres to apply. Applications can be obtained from the Vodacom website or by calling the Vodacom Millionaires call centre (for free from a Vodacom SIM) 082 24 32082.
