Twee honde verkool man, vrou en kinders oorleef Michelle Boshoff

Hendrik Kleinhans (44) en Charlene Collins (33) troos mekaar na die tragedie.

WITPOOT en Blikkies het verkool. Gelukkig het Trompie en Betsie oorleef. Dié vier honde was deel van die tragedie wat in Elephant Hills, Burgersfort, afgespeel het. Die huis van Hendrik Kleinhans (44) en Charlene Collins (33) het afgebrand. Hulle, hul twee kinders en ’n maatjie was ongedeerd. Hul vriende

het omstreeks 03:00 by die huis verbygeloop op Sondag 18 Augustus. Johan en Mary-Ann Stoop se kind het die aand by Hendrik en Charlene se kinders oorgeslaap. Die Stoop-egpaar het elders in die kompleks gaan kuier en hul vriende wakker gemaak dat die huis brand. “Binne drie minute was die huis afgebrand,” het Charlene Collins gesê. Niks kon gered word nie. Dankie aan Merensky Eiendomme, NG Kerk Burgersfort, Kobus Oosthuizen van Burgersfort

Brick Yard, Johan en Mary-Ann Stoop, Quintin en Juanta Collins, Lynette Collins, Charmaine Wolmarans, Lizelle Coetzee, Laerskool Burgersfort, Karen en Frans Holliday, dr. Fouché, Annalize Vercuile, OK Grocer en Charity Stores. Die paartjie bedank elke vriend, familielid en vreemdeling wat hulle bygestaan het om weer uit die as op te staan, daar is nog ’n lang pad wat voorlê maar hulle leef en dis al wat belangrik is. Die rede vir die brand is onbekend.


Op Vrydag 16 Augustus is 'n dooie luislang in Lydenburg gevind. Frik Rousseau Direkteur van LAPSAR het die luislang gaan haal en na die MTPA Visserye se kantoor geneem. Dit is 'n Suid Afrikaanse Luislang (Python natalensis) en kan ’n maksimum lengte van tot 5 meter haal en 40-50kg weeg. Die luislang is gemeet en die lengte was 4,2 meter. Dit was 'n wyfie. CITES beskou die luislang as bedreig en is gelys in Bylae II. Volgens die S.A Rooi data boek is dit in die kwesbare kategorie-by implikasie dat indien die huidige tendense sou voortgaan sal dit oorbeweeg na die bedreigde kategorie. Frik doen 'n beroep op die gemeenskap om geen slange dood te maak nie want hulle speel 'n baie belangrike rol in die natuur. Die saak word ondersoek.

Fixed rates calls for protest Michelle Boshoff

F

ormer aggrieved employees and members of the Expanded Public Works Programme and some business people took to the streets on Friday afternoon in Lydenburg. They protested against the fixed charges businesses have to pay. According to the new system businesses have to pay R670 per month if they have pre paid electricity. That does not include the electricity usage. In other municipalities only businesses with a circuit breaker 80A and more are charged a fix charge. If that rule is used in Thaba Chweu small businesses will be excluded from this R670 fixed charge. The protesters also wanted to know why Lydenburg would have no electricity for four days. Thaba Chweu Municipality surprised everyone on Monday when they were finished in just two days. In the end the town was without power for two days. Only Lydenburg and the business areas were affected throughout the weekend. It was done for maintenance. It does however not take away from the fact that it was a great disturbance and inconvenient position for the residents and businesses to be in.

Protestors, aggrieved workers of the Expanded Public Works Programme. They are all former workers who took part in the protest and came together at the Thaba Chweu Municipal Offices after marching through the streets of Lydenburg on Friday afternoon. (Michelle Boshoff).

Barko Developments het skole in die omgewing gaan help met die volgende: Skoonmaak van paviljoen, borde op gesit, gewigstoot put, volleyball baan, Verspring baan. Op die foto is (links): mnr. M. D. Mahlasela (skoolhoof, Marambane Primary School, (regs); mnr. B. Beeslaar (Barko Developments)

70-jarige ma word verstoot Anoniem van Lydenburg skryf: Ek as ’n weduwee van 70 jaar, moeder van 11 kinders, pleit vir hulp. Dis tragies dat kinders hul ma verstoot wat hul almal groot gemaak het. Daar’s nie ’n kind wat bereid is om na my om te sien nie. Ek is ’n bediende en niks verder, en nie eers ’n 10c werd vir hulle nie. Alles word van selfsprekend aangeneem. Dit is baie onregverdig teenoor my as ma. My stres is te veel vir my, ek kan dit nie meer hanteer nie. Ek dink partykeer hoekom het Onse Vader vir

Botswana is weg. Weg sê ek vir julle. Botswana het soos 'n kopspeld verdwyn van die aardbol af. Ek het gesoek, swartsakke uitgegooi en amper in die hondemis gaan rondkrap. Ruby het eienaardige eetgewoontes met tye. Maar Botswana is nêrens. Selfs in die hoogste kringe van die beskawing met honderde huishoudsters verdwyn goed sonder rede. By ons het Botswana toe voete gekry. Ja, Botswana. Krap maar julle koppe want hoe kan ’n land dan net verdwyn. ’n Klein regstelling van my kant, Botswana is my bos sleutels van die huis, hekke ens. Dit heet so weens die sleutelhouer. Die naam Botswana is met krale uitgewerk. En is gekoop toe ek en my ma 'n paar jaar gelede op safari in Botswana was. Dit help om jou goed in die huis 'n naam te gee. Dan hoef mens nie net van daai ding, en hierdie goeters te praat nie. In ons huis weet ons wat is Botswana, Daisy en Houtblok. Buitestaanders hoef nie die kodes van jou huistaal te leer nie. Dis net vir die inwoners van die huis. Botswana is nogal 'n belangrike bos. Almal weet watse groot gemors dit is om weer nuwe sleutels te laat maak. Om vir alle deure nuwe slotte aan te sit het ons ook al getref. En glo my, daar is niks wat ek meer haat as 'alledaagse gerondslomp oninteressante' take nie’. Dit grief my. Maandagmiddag stop ek na werk by die huis. Loop om die kar om die hek oop te sluit. My oog vang iets blou. En daar is Botswana, vasgehak aan 'n reënveër. Nie in Ruby se maag nie. Ek het dit natuurlik op my kar gesit toe ek tuin natgooi Sondag. En Botswana het die hele dag deur Lydenburg getoer. Nou weet Botswana ook hoe lyk Lydenburg...

In Memorium: me. Ria Faasen 3 November 1934 - 13 Augustus 2013 Huldeblyk aan 'n ma van haar kinders en kleinkinders Ons hoef Ria Faasen nie aan Lydenburg voor te stel nie. Haar spore lê diep in ons gemeenskap. Ons kinders en kleinkinders onthou haar as 'n deftige vrou, 'n dinamiese vrou wie se hande vir niks verkeerd gestaan het nie. Hande wat in haar tyd sakehande was en sy haar waarde gevoeg het by Rooikappie en Lydenburg Apteek, huisvrou hande wat vir twee gaste of tweehonderd gaste met gemak kon regstaan, kunstige hande wat kon toor met lap en wol, mammahande wat elke seer kon wegtroos, bidhande wat kon instaan by God as ons te swak was. Maar hierdie hande was stil langs haar sye Dinsdag die 13de Augustus. Ons het koorsagtig haar hande gesoek onder die lappe om dit vir oulaas vas te hou en was so dankbaar vir die geleentheid gegun om te groet. Die leemte is groot. Ons gaan haar mis. Ons

Psalm 112:1: Dit gaan goed met elkeen wat die Here dien, wat al sy vreugde vind in die gebooie van die Here. Dankie Vader dat ons mag getuig dat hierdie woorde van die Psalmdigter waar is. Help ons om U gebooie te onderhou en U te dien - Amen.

Kom ek verduidelik: Geestelike krag om nie die onnosel motorbestuurders te vloek nie, om almal tevrede te stel, om tyd te hê vir alles, om goed te onthou, om vrede te ervaar en om net

my 11 kinders gegee, dan dink ek weer, Hy sou nie as Hy nie geweet het ek is ’n goeie ma. Ek vra baie “hoekom”, hoekom ek? Trane is my kos, want ek word so seer gemaak deur kinders. Ek wil en kan nie meer by hulle bly nie. Ek vra asseblief tog hulp vir die basiese meubelstukkies in ’n huis en finansies om huurgelde en kos en klere te kry. U kan my skakel by 061 320 8489. Ek kan my nie self help nie en die kinders ook nie. Ek smeek die publiek vir hulp en bystand.

Anoniem skryf: Ek wil graag ’n groot bekommernis opper, wat definitief baie mense in Lydenburg moet raak. Ons hospitaal en sy personeel.... ek was ver in my derde trimester met my eerste kind die tyd was my ‘elective c-section’ al geboek, ek het ’n privaat dokter gebruik, omdat die staatsdokters geweier het om my ’n keisersnee te gee alhoewel ek probeer verduidelik het dat ek my heup en pelvisbene gekraak het toe ek jonger was en dit onmoontlik is vir my om natuurlike geboorte te gee. Dit het ’n plaas se prys gekos omdat ek ’n privaat dokter gebruik het. Vandag het ek bloeding gehad, ek het nie medies nie en die dokter wat ek gewoonlik gebruik was nie in vir

die dag nie. Ek is toe hospitaal toe.. ek is heel ongeskik behandel, ’n skrapse gordyn is toe getrek en ek moes kaal uittrek dat hoeveel pare hande my intiem kan ondersoek. Na baie toetse word bloed sommer getrek op die besoekers stoep, ’n handskoen om my bo-arm gedraai en daar word gesê ek moet vol tyd loop en normaal geboorte gee. Ek het net infeksie as ek met die dokter wil stry moet ek wag dat hy terug kom. Ek wag vyf ure net om te hoor hy is op middagete. Ek word kos aangebied... ek moet sit en eet in die gang langs iemand wat se kamerjas drup van die bloed. Sy was amper 24uur in kraam sy het twee ure gelede geboorte gegee. Dit was my ondervinding, ’n groot nagmerrie.

te “cope”. Liggaamlike krag om nie so deksels oud te voel nie. Om sonder pyne op te staan, om die sleg verkoue en griep van die winter af te skud, om al die medikasie weg te gooi en om meer vir ma te kan pla. Om nie op te sien om al die regte klere aan te trek en die motorfiets vir ’n spin te vat nie ens, ens. Finansiële krag om al die ou motors in goeie toestand te hou. Om the ou Chev vir Chip Foose van “Overhauling” te stuur. Om sonder ’n gesukkel en op die ingewing van die oomblik ons goed te pak en die land te gaan deurreis sonder kommer oor die prys van brandstof en akkommodasie. Om gou Seychelles te

toe te vlieg. Om nog personeel by die koerant aan te stel. Om skuld te kan afbetaal. Jy weet mos! Die ding is, baie min van ons is totaal onafhanklik en kommervry. Die meeste van ons gewone werkende mense is maar knaend aan die sukkel en die stres. So vir die van julle met alles geseën is, gaan op jou knieë en dank God. Vir julle ander boggers, ploeter maar aan, speel die Lotto en hoop. Die hoop beskaam nie! Nou vir ’n kompliment aan die munisipaliteit: Dankie dat julle die elektriese instandhouding tot die naweek kon beperk en alles kon afhandel. Ek het nogal gestres oor of ons die koerant Maandag en Dinsdag sou kon doen sonder krag en die Internet!


Gustav se paaie gladder Die Gustav Klingbiel Natuurreservaat se paaie is in ’n baie slegte toestand as gevolg van die invloed van reën en ’n tekort aan hulpbronne om die paaie instand te hou. Die plaaslike grondverskuiwings maatskappy, Zizwe, het kom uithelp en ’n groot gedeelte van die paaie kom regmaak op hul onkoste. “Dit is vir ons ’n riem onder die hart dat plaaslike besighede steeds bereid is om te help waar daar nood is. Ons wil mnr. Kobie Pruis, Besturende Direkteur van Zizwe, asook die bestuur van die maatskappy hartlik bedank vir die werk wat hul vir ons gedoen het en dat hul bereid is om terug te ploeg in ons gemeenskap en by te dra tot omgewingsbewaring. Instandhouding van paaie in die reservaat verhoed en bekamp gronderosie wat ’n omgewingsproblem skep,” het mnr. JP Celliers, Kurator van die Lydenburg Museum en die reservaat, gesê. Die mees kritieke gedeeltes van die paaie het aandag geniet en is nou meer begaanbaar vir voertuie. Dit is veral die brandbestrydings voertuie wat gaan baat by die beter paaie, aangesien hul nou vinniger kan reageer op veldbrande. Besoekers wat met bakkies en veldryvoertuie wild wil kom besigtig sal ook baat by die beter toestand van die paaie en kan nou met meer gemak gedeeltes van die reservaat besoek waar dit voorheen moeilik begaanbaar was.

Zizwe het gereel dat grondverskuiwings toerusting 'n groot gedeelte van die paaie in die Gustav Klingbiel Natuurreservaat regmaak. Die dele wat nou reggemaak is, was van die mees kritieke probleme ten opsigte van erosie en is nou weer begaanbaar met 'n voertuig.

A tribute to old age

Mrs. Cobie Steynberg ‘spinning’ in front

Age is but a number when it comes to keeping fit.

Two fit ladies on the spinning bikes.

a weak little smile. I need this cup to stay upright after last night. My three year old angel darts into the kitchen with a sunny “hello mama!” How does she do it? After waking 5 times last night with a wail not unlike that of an air raid siren... I'm getting old. • 7:10 am. As I drive down to the parking area at JJ's Connection Health, I spot them through the window, already on their bikes. My stalwart Wednesday spinning clients: Essie, Roelf, Annatjie, Chrissie and Margaret, all seventy something or thereabouts; amongst them a sprinkling of younger thirthy somethings every now and then. These people inspire me. Essie's kids entered him for the Argus Cycle Tour for his 70th birthday, or was it the Comrades? My sleep deprived brain can't recall. During class, Roelf is watching his heart rate monitor like a hawk. As usual, his heart rate won't conform to that of your average sedentary 72 year old. Next to him Annatjie pedals on with her zen-like calm focus. And Margaret and Chrissie bring up the rear, responding to every challenge I throw at them with resolve and a twinkle in the eye. Out-of-category climbs, jumps and fast flats, they have seen it all. They carry the grace of a lifetime of activity in their body, soul and spirit. They realised years ago that exercise is an investment in longevity. Moving the limbs and raising the heart rate moderately oxygenates the muscles to the very cell, lowers blood pressure, stabilises blood sugar and improves mood and general wellbeing. No fancy magazines had to teach them the benefits of regular exercise, a balanced diet and someone to love. They had experienced it for themselves and they still do. I am reminded of Brian, 73, who diligently shows up for his pilates sessions with me, no excuses. He works up a good sweat in an hour and executes every move I require, even if he thinks it's a little bit crazy. He climbs stairs with more ease now and gets around with greater awareness of how good posture can improve many aspects of your health. On that point, ask our clients living with Parkinsonism, how important moving with poise, balance and good upper back extension is. Ask the seniors who regularly attend the pilates class presented to them at the old age home, how invigorating proper, deep lateral breathing is. They will tell you the importance of stretching and moving the joints through a controlled range, instead of mindlessly throwing around too heavy weights.

Just four blood Be on alert for possible donations veld fires and strong winds a year can save up to 12 lives! THE provincial governm ent would like to warn residents of possible veld fires due to high temperatures and strong winds. These conditions are expected especially in the Highveld areas of the province. The Department would like to request residents to make sure that they do not start fires in the open veld, all fires are controlled and that they make sure that the fires are completely put out before leaving that area. Parents should take care that children do not start fires. All motorists are warned to slow down when driving in areas where there is smoke. The department has also instructed all municipalities to be on full alert and standby for any possible fires. Residents must report any fires as quickly as possible to their closest fire brigades.

The South African National Blood Service would like to thank the public for choosing to donate blood this winter. Our blood stock levels have improved significantly. While blood levels are stable, the need for blood is, unfortunately always prevalent. This Women's Month, we are requesting the public to continue donating blood in honour of all mothers and children, especially those that are dependent on blood transfusions for their survival. Research shows that around 36% of blood that the SANBS collects is used for women who lose blood during childbirth and gynaecological cases as well as for paediatric cases like surgery of foetuses, infants, children, adolescents and young adults. One unit of blood can save up to 3 lives. If a single person donates blood four times a year, this can save up to 12 lives. The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) is requesting that the public continue donating blood, especially for people that are dependent on blood transfusions for their survival. We plead with all South Africans who meet the minimum requirements to commit to donating blood regularly. Minimum requirements to be a donor: Be between the ages of 16 – 65 years Weigh more than 50 kg Be in good health Live a sexually safe lifestyle To find your nearest donor centre call us on 0800 11 9031 or visit www.sanbs.org.za or find us on Facebook or Twitter.

Maroelaboom tree op 23 Augustus by Legends, The Heads Sentrum, Lydenburg op. Dis van 20:00 tot laat. Toegang is R30 per persoon.

Ouers, ry stadiger Bekommerde ouer van Lydenburg skryf: Ek skryf hierdie brief omdat dit vir my na 'n ernstige probleem wil lyk. Ek is 'n ouer wat 'n graad 2 kind in Laerskool Lydenburg het. Omdat die verkeer so baie is stop ek by die treinspoor en loop dan saam met my kind skool toe en ek self stap dan terug tot by die treinspoor. My probleem is dit - die ouers jaag soos mal goed omdat dit nou eenrigting verkeer is. Baie van die ouers gebruik nie eens ’n flikkerlig by die hoek van Van Staden- en De Vosstrate nie, en die kinders stap daar oor oppad skool toe. Daar is party ouers wat dit in hul kop het dat die kinders maar moet wag by die voetoorgang sodat hulle kan ry. Ja ek stem saam dat mens altyd moet kyk dat die pad skoon is voordat jy oorstap. Maar kom ons dink nou soos 'n kind, 'n kind dink die tanie of die oom sal my sien en stadiger ry en stop. Ek raak yskoud in die oggend as ek sien hoe die kindertjies net stap en die ouers wat self kinders het om af te laai soos mal goed op die skool af jaag. Regtig sal hul nou eers stadiger ry wanneer 'n kind dood gery word? Nee ek dink nie die eenrigting verkeer is 'n goeie idee nie want dis nou 'n eenrigting ‘Highway.’ Hulle stop nie eers behoorlik by die kruising van Nel- en De Vosstrate nie. En ek wonder hoeveel van die mense het 'n geldige rybewys? Want as mens leer vir jou leerlinglisensie dan leer mens al die pad en verkeersreëls. En baie van hulle verontagsaam die verkeersreëls. Ek persoonlik dink die eenrigting ’highway’

moet afgeskaf word. Ek wil nie beleef dat ’n kind of self my eie dood gery moet word nie. Hoe sal een van julle as ouer voel as jou kind dood gery word?

Lydenburg through the eyes of a tourist Myrtle Stringer, Vereeniging writes: Last week my daughter and I were touring the Lydenburg, Dullstroom, Nelspruit area with two overseas relatives - it was their first visit. My daughter and I live in South Africa and are very proud of our beautiful country. We decided to visit the Lydenburg Museum and were extremely impressed, both by the exhibitions and the overall appearance. It really is very interesting, very clean and Lydenburg Municipality can be very proud. There was however one problem which should be addressed - the toilets at the museum were spotless but unfortunately did not supply toilet paper, hand soap or towels and when I discussed it with the receptionist she informed me that the municipality did not supply these items and she had to supply them from her own pocket! She had no money to supply them so visitors were embarrassed by the situation.

Menige ma's, oumas en selfs pa's het trane weggevee, tydens hierdie jaar se Nelspruit Eistedfodd. 17 Laerskool kore, elkeen met sy eie unieke styl en klank het deelgeneem. 2013 se kore was almal van hoë gehalte maar Laerskool Lydenburg bly steeds die beste. Maande se harde werk, vroeg opstaan en lang oefeninge na skool, het vrugte afgewerp, toe beide die junior- en seniorkore hierdie jaar weer hulle onderskeie afdelings gewen het. Die juniorkoor het ’n welverdiende A++ met 92% en die seniorkoor ook ’n skitterende A++ met 93%. Die kore het hierdie jaar ook vir die eerste keer aan die Nasionale Eisteddfod hier in Lydenburg deelgeneem, waar hulle 'n diploma toekenning behaal het. Dit is die hoogste moontlike toekenning. Beide die kore staan onder leiding van Suzaan Bronkhorst. Haar uitstekende leiding en inspirasie is wat van ’n goeie koor ’n wenkoor maak! Die beoordeelaar was Chris Coetzer.

EARLIER in 2013, Wheels24 reported on tuning specialists Carisma Auto Design who created bespoke Mercedes-Benz Vianos. Now the company has turned its attention to an iconic 4x4 - Land Rover's Defender. The Defender is a legend of the British automotive industry with worldfamous off-road capability, but a super-luxury version? Carisma Auto Design, which claims to be one of the world's leading conversions experts, has added "unrivalled luxury" to its list of achievements incorporating leather and materials installed by English craftspeople. The conversion of the Land Rover Defender was originally created to be the ultimate luxury vehicle with off-road ability but it can also be adapted to create a luxury armoured vehicle that is completely discreet to protect the identity of the occupants. Carisma says it greatly respects Land Rover’s design pedigree, which is why it has modified the cabin but not the exterior, allowing clients to engage in outdoor activities in total comfort. With a range of leather, carpet and wood available in any combination, no two Defenders from Carisma Auto Design will ever be the same. The specification and design of each is unique to the client and only limited by their imagination.

ash trays and Champagne flutes, premium pen sets with tailored stands, customised seat embroidery, 106cm TV's and fridges. All these and much more have all been tastefully hand crafted into vehicles over Carisma Auto Design’s 14-year history. By email

The leather used by Carisma is carefully sourced from barbed-wire free environments (such as South Africa) to ensure pristine hide and is complemented by a choice of wood veneer, hand-made and fitted to the vehicle by a team of some of the best English craftspeople. "To complete the ultimate luxury vehicle for outdoor sporting pursuits," Carisma says, "we can hand-craft a bespoke gun cabinet from the finest wood, featuring magnificent cut-glass crystal Champagne flutes and tumblers complete with separate refrigeration facilities.” No matter to what use you intend to use your Carisma Defender, the company says, there's a choice from a range of multimedia options for Windows or Apple operating systems, wi-fii and Bluetooth to ensure you are always connected when on the move, with audio equipment from Bang & Olufsen. Sales and marketing director Clive Drake said: "The Land Rover Defender is an iconic British vehicle with legendary off-road capability. One day a client came to me wanting a vehicle that had all of the capabilities of the Defender but with an interior ambience of a Range Rover with the feeling of pure exclusivity of a Rolls-Royce - the Carisma Auto Design Defender conversion was born. “Clients come to us because they know we can achieve the impossible and deliver a vehicle that exceeds their expectations. We’ve been asked to incorporate some truly outlandish features but we still manage to integrate them seamlessly into the vehicle.” Amongst some of the recent requests have been solid crystal

crazy going through Nigeria; that people will kill us, rob us, knife us, and kidnap us. So we got a little scared,” he said. But Lady Luck stepped in and Oosterbroek, through Facebook, managed to get in touch with a fellow countryman working in Lagos. In turn, the man convinced his company to sponsor an armed convoy for Oosterbroek – at that time travelling with friend, Yme Veenje – during their Nigerian travels. THIS is a story worthy of inclusion in Gulliver's Travels, but there was nothing fictional about intrepid Dutch traveller Jos Oosterbroek's journey through Africa – all in a trusty Volkswagen Beetle and not even a flat tyre throughout the entire 20 000km trip. Oosterbroek, a 28-year-old teacher in the Netherlands, fittingly ended his triumphant expedition at the Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA) plant in Uitenhage in April this year. Welcomed by the Volkswagen Customer Interaction Centre (CIC) team, Oosterbroek told of how he started out on his journey from Amsterdam four months earlier and set course for Cape Town in his 1982 Beetle.

“From Lagos we had an escort vehicle in front of us with three guys armed with AK47s taking us 900km through the country to Cameroon. Every time we had to go to a toilet or have a smoke there would be two guys with guns going with us. “While driving, everybody on the street was pushed to the side to get our tiny Beetle through the country. It was super funny and a great experience. It felt like I was James Bond,” Oosterbroek recalled. Another challenge was travelling into the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). “This was the most challenging part of the trip. The day before I left for this country I met two Dutch guys with a my car

So trusty was the vehicle – it did not break down once and never even suffered a flat tyre – that Oosterbroek donated it to VWSA where it is now proudly displayed in the acclaimed AutoPavilion. The Auto Pavilion, a place of people and cars, traces VWSA's history in South Africa from inception in 1946 through to today. The exhibits include lovingly restored examples of cars produced in the Uitenhage factory over the last seven decades as well as interesting memorabilia and the stories of the people who build People's Cars. Oosterbroek recalled some hair-raising moments during his travels from the top to bottom of Africa. “The closer we got to Nigeria everybody started panicking. They told us that we were

Landrover Defender who just came from the DRC who told me that my Beetle would never work there because the hills were too steep and the roads just too bad. The trip itself was indeed very challenging. There were mud slides, steep hills with bad roads that I could only pass by going fast. And going fast on the bumpy road meant that my car was bouncing like crazy over the rocks. But I completed the whole stage without any problems. That was one of the moments that I really loved the Beetle. The small car did way better than the big Landrover.” When he reached Namibia, Oosterbroek made contact with the CIC through the Volkswagen Facebook page. CIC Emerging Media team leader, Sean Jacobs, maintained communication with Oosterbroek up until he arrived at the plant and handed over his Beetle. The car was in excellent condition despite having travelled 20 000km, under some of Africa's harshest conditions. Although Oosterbroek admitted that he had attended to a recurring oil leak from time to time.

• Multi-function steering wheel with audio controls • 6 speaker sound system with RDS • iPod & USB connectivity • 5-year/150 000km warranty & roadside assistance • ABS with EBD • Driver and passenger airbags • 2-year/30 000km service plan

But the adventure was not over for Oosterbroek, who was accompanied by girlfriend Jorien Stevens, 27, who had joined him in Namibia. The pair enjoyed a two-week trip around South Africa in a Volkswagen T5 Kombi sponsored by VWSA. “Of course I really missed the Beetle, but it was also so nice that we had a lot of space and a car with power.” “The Beetle in the end had a top speed of 80km/h and uphill it only did 30km/h. The Kombi did in excess of 130km/h going uphill! Also having air-conditioning was very welcome. The Kombi changed the whole trip from having no luxury at all to a very comfortable trip.” Having arrived back to Amsterdam Oosterbroek said it was back to the grindstone. “It's back to finding a job. Maybe when I got a job again and have saved some money, I will start itching again for some adventure,” he said. By email from VWSA.

IN 1913, Chevrolet co-founder William C. Durant introduced the signature Chevy bowtie on the 1914 Chevrolet H-2 Royal Mail and the H-4 Baby Grand, centred at the front of both models. Sixty million Chevrolets are on the roads worldwide today and the bowtie has adorned 215 million Chevrolets over the last century. A Chevrolet car, crossover or truck is sold every 6.39 seconds in one of 140 countries, and the brand set a sales record of 2.5 million in the first six months of the year. “The Chevrolet bowtie is recognized around the world” said Chevrolet Chief M a r k e t i n g O ff i c e r Ti m Mahoney. “Whether you're pulling thousands of pounds through rocky terrain in a Silverado pickup or commuting in a Spark EV, Chevrolet's bowtie will always be at the very front of your travels.” While the bowtie has been present for 100 years, the details surrounding its origin are uncertain. Stories range from Durant being inspired by the wallpaper design in a Parisian hotel to a newspaper advertisement he saw while vacationing in Hot Springs, Va. But according to Margery Durant, in her 1929 book My Father, Durant sometimes doodled nameplate designs on pieces of paper at the dinner table. "I think it was between the soup and the fried chicken one night that he sketched out the design that is used on the Chevrolet car to this day," she wrote. In a 1968 interview, Durant's widow, Catherine, said the bowtie design originated from a Hot Springs vacation in 1912. While reading a newspaper in their hotel room, Durant spotted a design and exclaimed, “I think this would be a very good emblem for the Chevrolet.” That nugget of information inspired Ken Kaufmann, historian and editor of The Chevrolet Review, to search out its validity. In a Nov. 12, 1911 edition of The Constitution newspaper, published in Atlanta, an advertisement appeared from the Southern Compressed Coal Company for “Coalettes,” a refined fuel product for fires. The Coalettes logo, as published in the ad, had a slanted bowtie form, very similar to the shape that would soon become the Chevrolet icon. Did Durant and his wife see the same ad – or one similar – the following year a few states to the north? The date of the paper Kaufmann found was just nine days after the incorporation of the Chevrolet Motor Co. The first use of the bowtie by Chevrolet appeared in the Oct. 2, 1913 edition of The Washington Post with the words “Look for this nameplate” above the symbol. By email from GMSA

The all-new Nissan ALMERA is now available in South Africa, bringing stylish design and exceptional value together in one complete package. The all-new ALMERA is built in Chennai, India and fully imported. The South African market forms part of the 170 global markets where the new ALMERA is marketed. Already on sale in key markets like the USA, Thailand and China, the new ALMERA has racked up global sales in excess of 500 000 units to date. “The ALMERA is an important new car for Nissan in South Africa, where the B-segment is the largest and fastest-growing segment in the market,” says Janico Dannhauser, Product Manager for Passenger Vehicles at Nissan South Africa. A well-designed vehicle inside and out, with class-leading rear legroom and luggage capacity in particular, as well as a functional cabin – all at an exceptionally affordable price. The focused headlamps introduce the vehicle and are flanked by a large, chromed grille. The sporty side profile includes attractive 15-inch alloy wheels, a coupe-like window profile and smooth surfaces. The rear of the new ALMERA features distinctively large tail lights which wrap around into the flanks. All design elements have been implemented with aerodynamic efficiency built in as well – from body panels to door mirrors, the boot lid with integrated spoiler and even under-chassis elements like the fuel tank and rear suspension – to ensure the new ALMERA is geared to reducing fuel consumption in every aspect. The modular interior design is ergonomically sound with high perceived quality and textured surfaces. Interior space has been maximised thanks to a long wheelbase – 2 600 mm – which makes its boldest statement in rear legroom. Excellent all-round visibility for both driver and passengers also contributes to the spacious feeling, a generous 636 mm of total rear knee space, coupled to an arm rest for rear passengers, contributes to ALMERA's ticking of all the right boxes. Upholstery is a durable black and grey cloth combination, with interior panels finished in black as well. The instrument cluster features a fuss-free design with polished detailing, decorative illumination and clear lettering, the two analogue dials flanking a central LCD display screen. Silver design highlights also feature on the centre console, facia and around the air vents – of which there are an extra two for rear seat passengers with a dedicated, independent fan speed control. The new ALMERA has also been designed with practicality in mind, the interior featuring no less than three major storage cubby holes. There are also a total of four cup or bottle holders. The boot is its biggest feature, with a massive, class-leading 490 litres of luggage space. The new Nissan is available with a 1.5-litre petrol engine. The unit produces 73 kW of power at 6 000 rpm and 134 Nm of torque at 4 000 rpm. The low-emission and efficient engine allows the five-speed manual version of the new car to achieve a combined cycle fuel economy of 6.3-litres per 100 km, the four-speed automatic variant achieving 7.2. Carbon emissions for both models are 149 g/km and 171 g/km respectively. The compact engine has been designed for the new ALMERA, various components including the air filter, fuel hose and intake manifold being adapted to suit the compact nature of the ALMERA's engine bay. The automatic gearbox in particular has seen comprehensive design enhancements which contribute to its light weight. Changes include flattening of the torque converter, a reduction in the total number of gearbox components by 12%, relocation of the gear layout and a more compact direct control linear solenoid – all of which results in a total length reduction of 43 mm and weight saving of 10 kg. Suspension is by Macpherson strut with coil-over dampers up front, with an H-type torsion beam arrangement at the rear. Safety equipment comprises ABS with EBD and BAS, with backup in the form of two airbags and five three-point seat belts. Other safety equipment includes ISOFIX child seat anchor points, a third brake light and an immobiliser. Available in one model grade, the new ALMERA 1.5 Acenta manual and automatic models feature remote central locking, full colour coding, chrome exterior detailing, 15-inch alloy wheels, electric door mirrors, manual air conditioning with dedicated rear vents and independent fan speed control, a radio/CD/MP3 audio system with aux input port, four speakers, steering wheel audio controls, a height-adjustable driver's seat, tilt adjustment for the steering wheel, remote central locking with speed-sensitive auto-locking doors and a comprehensive trip computer with two trip meters, instant and average fuel economy readouts, tank range and service information.

The spirit of ecstasy I’ve wanted to write a piece about radiator mascots for some time. Last Saturday morning I called in at the Crankhandle Car Club in Cape Town to attend a book sale they were hosting – I’m not a member – but this is an annual event any petrolhead really ought to attend. While perusing stall after stall of ‘automobile treasures’ – mostly at bargain prices – I soon became caught up in the intriguing story of just how the RollsRoyce “Spirit of Ecstasy” radiator mascot came into being in this the company's 109th year – and the most famous bonnet ornament ever fitted to an automobile, before or since. Eleanor Valesco Thornton must have been a captivating woman. Born in London in 1880, she became a bright and exceptionally beautiful adult who found secretarial employment with a motoring publication called The Car Illustrated. Her boss was the editor, John Walter Edward-Scott-Montagu, later to become Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, the founder of the biggest automobile museum in the world and to be found in the New Forest in the county of Hampshire, England. Montagu’s part-time illustrator for the magazine (many line drawings were the order of the day back then when photography was still in its infancy) was the celebrated sculptor Charles Sykes who was commissioned to design a bonnet mascot for Montagu’s own Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, for which he was told he must use Thornton as the model. Meanwhile, as you might have guessed, a serious love affair was blossoming between Thornton and Montagu – a tryst frowned upon by all except his closest friends because of his social standing. The statue that Sykes produced for the car was of a young woman in a forward stance with a veil flowing behind her but her fingers pressed to her lips. Montagu was really pleased with it, as Well he should have been. With the one-off mascot suitably installed on his car it was nicknamed by Montagu’s closest friends as “The Whisperer”. Montagu sat on the then board of directors at Rolls-Royce Cars (now owned by BMW) and pushed forward the idea of a standard radiator mascot for all RollsRoyce cars. Little enthusiasm for the idea was shown by Charles Royce, head of the company, who was more than a little alarmed to see the current craze of funny mascots such as glass cats, nickel policeman and even chromium-plated golliwogs(!) adorning his and other fine cars. He had to make an instant decision – that choice was to commission a modified version of Sykes’ mascot with “Thornton” standing more upright this time around with both arms trailing behind her while holding a lightweight gown appearing to blow in a breeze. Since 1911 it has been the only mascot officially allowed to adorn a Rolls-Royce. "What became of Montagu and Thornton? "I hear you ask. Well, they had a love child, but it was whisked away from Thornton when it was born and brought up by Montagu. Little was said of the matter, probably due to his influential status in London society. During the First World War Montagu served in the Indian Army as an Inspector of Mechanical Transport. While returning to India aboard the SS Persia, accompanied by his favourite secretary, the ship was torpedoed by a German submarine.

End of the road for the classic Kombi ABOUT 1.5 million Kombis have rolled off the lines of Volkswagen's assembly plant in Sao Paulo since 1957. Volkswagen is to end production of its Kombi transporter, made only in Brazil, with the iconic van bowing out in a special 600-unit manufacturing run, The German carmaker said on Thursday about 1.5 million Kombis had rolled off the lines of Volkswagen's assembly plant in the Sao Paulo suburb of Sao Bernardo do Campo between 1957 and July 2013. 63 YEARS IN PRODUCTION According to VW the Kombi, launched in Germany in 1950, has enjoyed the longest production run in automotive history; it added that the “Last Edition Kombi” would be sold at a suggested price of $38 000. Kombi models assembled in Brazil have since 1970 been exported to countries around the world, including Algeria, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, South Africa, Venezuela and Uruguay. - AFP

In the true spirit of “Ladies and children first,”* Montagu escorted Thornton and other passengers to the lifeboats – the last time he was to see her alive. Amazingly, he survived the tragedy but only after his obituary had already appeared in The Times! Eleanor Velasco Thornton, however, remains immortal, remembered and acknowledged on every Rolls-Royce manufactured since that fateful day. Originally silver-plated, at some time gold-plated and even redesigned slightly in 1934 to accommodate a lower bonnet line for the cars, "Spirit of Ecstasy” continues her onward journey. • It’s worth remembering that a Rolls-Royce doesn’t ever break down – it simply fails to proceed! So next time I see one driving by I’ll be sure to check out that beautiful mascot up front and remember its real name: “The Whisperer.” * On 26 February 1852, while transporting troops to Algoa (now Nelson Mandela) Bay, she was wrecked at Danger Point near Gansbaai, 140 kilometres from Cape Town, South Africa. There were not enough serviceable lifeboats for all the passengers, and the soldiers famously stood firm, thereby allowing the women and children to board the boats safely. Only 193 of the 643 people on board survived, and the soldiers' chivalry gave rise to the "women and children first" protocol when abandoning ship, while the "Birkenhead drill" of Rudyard Kipling's poem came to describe courage in face of hopeless circumstances.

New BMW M4

JUST 24-hours after a leaked image of the BMW M4 Concept was spotted online, BMW has released the official images of the highly-anticipated new car. USA Today is reporting the M4 Concept is scheduled to be shown at this weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, perfect timing for it to appear on BMW’s stand at next months Frankfurt Motor show. While there’s no official word on specification or performance figures, the M4 is expected to have a 3,0litre turbocharged inline six engine developing around 335 kW and 650 N.m. Mated with the same dual-clutch transmission doing service in the M5 and M6, this unit

should be good for a 0-100 km/h run in the region of 4,5 seconds on the way to an electronically limited 250 km/h top speed. Carmag.co.za

NB!

Kitchen sanitation isn't just about wiping off your counters or washing your hands after you handle raw chicken. If you want to keep everyone in your household clean, healthy and safe (and we think you do), focus your attention on these three main areas and follow these rules Storage: Your fridge should be kept cooler than 4.4 degrees C, and the freezer should be at 0 degrees or less, (check the temperature every three months). Go through the refrigerator once a week and toss out anything that's past its prime. Raw meat, poultry, eggs, cooked food or cut produce should never sit out for more than two hours. Defrost food in cold running water or overnight in the refrigerator, never on the counter.

Preparation and cooking: When you're preparing food, repeat this mantra: "Clean, separate, cook, chill." You need to not only keep raw meats separate from other foods, but also washed fruits and vegetables separate from unwashed produce -- and you should have different cutting boards for meats and produce.

Cleaning: There's really no need for chemical cleaners in the kitchen (and you definitely shouldn't use them in the fridge). Lemon juice and distilled white vinegar can become your best friends for kitchen cleaning: Lemon juice neutralizes odors, vinegar is an amazing disinfectant and sanitizer, and both are great degreasers. A spray bottle of undiluted white vinegar is a handy-dandy multitasker, and a little bleach and water can also go a long way. And don't forget cleaning yourself: Wash, wash, wash your hands -- after handling raw poultry, sneezing, blowing your nose, using the bathroom, petting your dog, the list goes on. Always use warm water and soap and scrub for at least 20 seconds.

Kwalifiseer vir Eerste in Ernie Els toernooi Kringspan L AERSKOOL Lydenburg se eerste gholfspan het vanaf 9 tot 10 Augustus aan die Ernie Els Suid-Afrikaanse Laerskole Gholftoernooi deelgeneem. Om vir die toernooi te kon kwalifiseer het die gholfspan teen ander laerskole in Mpumalanga deelgeneem en uiteindelik eerste geёindig. Dit is die eerste keer in die skool se geskiedenis dat die uitsonderlike prestasie behaal is en dit is ’n duidelike teken van harde werk wat met gholfontwikkeling plaasvind. Die spelers het die geleentheid gekry om ’n oefenrondte te speel waarna die toernooi, wat oor 36

Laerskool Lydenburg is trots op elke atleet wat op 31 Julie aan 'n landloop byeenkoms op Hoërskool Lydenburg se terrein deelgeneem het. 20 van Laerskool Lydenburg se atlete het gekwalifiseer vir die Kringspan. Van links (agter): Jeandré Smith, Bongo Bambiso, Sammy Moriri, Carlia du Plessis, Rueben vd Merwe, Gabi vd Merwe, Kaylee Lindeque, Cameron Coleman; (middel): Hlogi Maphalla, Bernice van Wyk, Lindo Nkwana, Tshepiso Molobela, Lesedi Khumalo, JJ Erskine, Karabo Mohlala; (voor): Hermanus Putter, Handré Swanepoel, Stephanie Fritz, Angel Mabuza en Lebo Manok.

gaatjies gestrek het, op Vrydag en Saterdag gespeel is. Wat die prestasie meer noemenswaardig maak is dat slegs die top skole van regoor die land uitgenooi word. Hierdie jaar het 17 skole by die pragtige Els Club te Copperleaf in Centurion deelgeneem en skole vanaf so ver as Paarl en Kathu was daar. Die afrigter van die span, mnr. Kallie Erasmus en hulle bestuurder, mnr. Heino de Jongh is baie trots op hulle spannetjie. Alhoewel hulle nog 'n baie jong span is (1 graad 5's, 1 graad 6 en 1 graad 7), het hulle hope talent en potensiaal om dit nog ver te bring. “Dit was 'n fantastiese ondervinding vir die seuns en ons sien uit na volgende jaar”, het mnr. Kallie Erasmus gesê.
