September is Erfenismaand. Vier dit op 24 September, dis ’n vakansiedag. Vier dit as Nasionale Braaidag of vier jou kultuur en herkoms. THERE are many explanations for how the name Mashishing came into being. Below are some explanations which I believe may hold some truth. According to historic accounts the original community (BaPedi) resided at Boomplaats. After the land was sold to private people the original residents moved away and settled at the banks of the Marambane River. The name Marambane was derived from the word mahambane meaning to walk. This word was used to describe the gold prospectors (1871), Abomahambane, who scoured the hills and valleys around Lydenburg in search of gold. It was here that Mashishing was established. At first it was agreed that the area be named Marangrang (after a Pedi chief and businessman) but it was later decided to name it Mashishing, after the tall grass of the area. This reference to grass was also made in another probable explanation for the origin of Mashishing. Major of Thaba Chweu, Mr Michael Ncongwane, who is also an enthusiastic historian, explained that the BaPedi settled here with their cattle mainly because this area had excellent grazing for cattle. Therefore the place was referred to as Leshishi – good grass or grazing. Leshishi became Mashishing. The latter, I believe, explains why reference is made to grass in both cases, you decide which is more probable! - By JP Celliers, Curater Lydenburg Museum.

Die Jubileum Uitgawe van Lydenburg Nuus op 22 Junie 1962, vier ook die 75ste bestaansjaar van die koerant. Teen daardie tyd was dit dan ook die oudste Plattelandse nuusblad en drukpers in die Transvaal. Aldus die berig in die uitgawe word die herkoms van die drukpers wat gebruik is om die koerant te druk weergegee: “Tydens die goud “boom” te Pelgrimsrust in 1872, is 'n drukpers aldaar opgerig en is “The Goldfiels Mercury” uitgegee. Twee jaar later, in 1874, is publikasie van laasgenoemde blad gestaak”. Na hierdie gebeurtenis vervolg die berig met: “ 'n Ryk Lydenburgse handelaar, by name John H. Parker, het die toerusting gaan koop en dit die 37 myl vanaf Pelgrimsrus per ossewa laat vervoer en dit opgerig op die perseel waar Kruger se Slagtery tans gehuisves is. Een van hierdie “masjiene”, 'n proefpers met die datum 1872 daarop gegraveer, is vandag nog in gebruik by die Lydenburg Nuus”. Tans is hierdie proefpers in die versameling van die Lydenburg Museum. “De Lijdenburger” se eertse uitgawe was op 23 Junie 1887 en deur John H. Parker uitgegee. Ses jaar later het die broers Paul en Hendrik Joubert die koerant oorgeneem. 'n Verdere vyf jaar later besit Hendrik, ook bekend as “Hendrik Regop” die koerant en persbedryf tot en met sy aftrede in 1954. Hy is oorlede in 1959 te Pretoria. Die koerant het ook 'n groot rol gespeel tydens die Tweede Vryheidsoorlog (ook bekend as die Anglo Boereoorlog, 1899-1902) toe dit die amptelike spreekbuis was van die Republikeinse Regering. Gedurende die tydperk het die Redakteur (Joubert) asook mnr S. Hiemstra in ondubbelsinnigetaal geskryf hoe hul oor die Britse magte gevoel het. Met die aankoms van Genl. Buller en sy magte in Oktober 1900 is die koerant se toerusting gekommandeer vir gebruik deur die Britse magte en is Joubert en Hiemstra beide gevange geneem. Na afloop van die oorlog het die “Lydenburg News” vir die eerstekeer die lig gesien. Hierdie het 'n nuwe tydperk in die koerant se beleid ingelei en Die Lydenburg Nuus / Lydenburg News het gestreef om op politieke gebied heeltemal onpartydig te staan en 'n beter verhouding tussen die twee taalgroepe (Afrikaans en Engels) te bevorder. Die koerant is telke male van hand versit. Mnre. Schulze en Bloom het dit verkoop aan mnr C. Hurley wie dit dan weer in 1944 aan mnr. Jack Healy verkoop het. Teen die tyd van Hurley se heengaan in 1956 het mnre. D.N. Ackermann en T. De Villiers die besigheid oorgeneem. Na De Villiers se onttrekking het Ackermann die besigheid steeds besit teen die tyd van die verskyning van die Jubileum Uitgawe op 22 Junie 1962. • Koerante in Lydenburg het dus ’n ryk geskiedenis in Lydenburg en media is die spil waarom informasie draai in enige dorp. Die Highlands Panorama Nuus (nou in sy tiende jaar) is trots daarop om deel van hierdie geskiedenis te wees, aangesien wyle Quintus Loots, een van die HPN se stigterslede, op ’n stadium ook die eienaar van die Lydenburg Nuus was. ~ RED

DURING the Lydenburg / Mashishing Business Chamber’s (LMBC) public meeting on 10 September, the community was updated on several issues. Two senior representatives from Vodacom gave a presentation regarding coverage problems for cellular phones and for data connections in the Lydenburg area. They acknowledged that growth in Lydenburg was larger than anticipated. However, Vodacom was urgently looking into upgrading infrastructure and expanding coverage through the establishment of additional cellular towers. The upgrade would include moving away from 2G to 3G for most of the area. They also mentioned that they were dependent on Telkom infrastructure, which is also battling to keep up. Residents should expect an improvement in Vodacom coverage within six months to a year. Mr. Leon De Jager then took the podium and informed the community that the Lydenburg / Mashishing Business Chamber was now also a member of the Afrikaanse Handelsinstituut (AHI) and of the Kruger / Lowveld Tourism Association, both of which hold great benefits and potential for the local Business Chamber and its members. Regarding the basic electricity levies imposed on small businesses with prepaid meters, mr. De Jager mentioned that the LMBC was making progress in resolving this issue with the Thaba Chweu Municipality. Small businesses with circuit breakers of 40 amp and lower, can look forward to a significant

New car break in scam APPARENTLY there is a new car break in scam that also puts your home in danger. For what it is worth (we could not determine accuracy), here is the story: The other day I approached my bakkie from the passenger side to place my computer bag on the front passenger seat. As I reached to open the door I noticed there was a hole right under my door handle. My first thought was, "someone has shot my bakkie!" I began to think about it and inspected it a little closer. Then the 'light' slowly began to dawn on me. I phoned my friend who owns a car body shop and asked if he had any vehicles with damage to the doors that looked like a bullet hole. "Yes, I see it all the time. Thieves have a punch and place it right under the door handle, knock a hole through, reach in and unlock it, just as if they have a key. No alarms, broken glass or anything". I then placed a call to my insurance agent and explained it to him. I was puzzled that they left my GPS and all other belongings. Here is where it gets scary! "Oh no", he said. "They want the break-in to be so subtle that you don't even realize it. They look at your GPS to see where 'home' is. They know what you drive, so they go to your home and if your vehicle isn't there, they assume you aren't either and break in your home." He said they even give you the courtesy of re-locking your doors for you. They will leave a purse or wallet and only take one or two credit cards. By the time you realize there has been a theft, they may have already had a couple days, or more, to use them. So, periodically walk around your car; daily - if you are in a shopping centre or other parking area. Report thefts immediately, your bank with missing cheque numbers, your credit card agencies, police, and insurance companies, etc. And set your home address for a street nearby. (source: email)

POLICE are investigating a case of House Robbery after a 55 year old woman was tied up and robbed of her belongings in a house in town. The house is on the market with different estate agents. According to information a BMW (New model), silver in colour, stopped in front of the house in the morning at about 09:00 on Tuesday 10 September and hooted. The owner, who was alone at home at that stage, went out and met one female and 3 males who requested to have a look at the house. The well-dressed female indicated to the owner of the house that she is a doctor. The owner opened the gate and let them in. She took them through the premises and they left. At about 13:00 the 4 suspects returned and requested to see the house again. She let them in and one of the men then allegedly requested to look at the main bedroom again. She took him there. He then suddenly grabbed her and told her that “This is a gentlemen's robbery”. They tied the victim's feet and hands with cable ties, put a towel around her mouth and over her head. They shoved her into the bathroom after they demanded the keys to the safe. The 4 suspects fled the scene with personal belongings to the value of R60 000. The woman managed to get a hold of a pair of scissors in the bathroom and cut herself loose. Emergency services personnel immediately responded. Fortunately no one was seriously injured in the process. The case is being investigated and the Detectives are following up on information. The community are cautioned to be on the look-out for a silver (latest model) BMW with a Limpopo registration number, occupied by three well-presented males and one female. One of the men is of stout build and he was dressed in a pair of dark brown trousers and light brown shirt. The second man was of a medium build and the third one was quite slender and wearing a blue and white striped shirt. The young female had khaki-coloured trousers on with a dark coloured jacket. She

Anyone who can assist the police with information must please contact the investigation officer, Warrant Officer Peter Johnson on 076 908 5742 We are making an appeal to the community not to open their gates for strangers. Never let any strangers onto your premises or into your house, especially when you are alone. Do not trust anybody, as these thugs are extremely clever and they will manipulate any situation in order to look like the real deal. In this case the lady indicated that she was a Doctor looking for a house to buy. They were well dressed, well-spoken and came back for a second time, making it seem like they are sincere and really interested in purchasing the

property. It is better to only work through reliable estate agents and only open up your house as per prior appointment and only when the estate agents accompanies the potential buyers. Do not make any appointments for when you are alone. Domestic workers should be sensitised not to open for anyone unless they receive confirmation from you. Your property should also be clearly marked for positive identification. Keep records of all serial numbers and proof of purchase in a separate place in the house. Mark your property with a unique identification mark as thieves nowadays also try to remove all evidence such as serial numbers, etc. Neighbours should also get to know each other. Suspicious people or vehicles should be reported to your security company or the SAPS.

allegedly drugged again. She later became fully conscious again only on Sunday the 8th of September at her home in Skhila, unable to recall what had happened during this period. She was admitted to the local hospital for examination and the matter was reported to the SAPS. A case of man stealing was opened and the investigation continues. Anyone who is able to assist the SAPS with information in this regard is requested to contact the investigating officer, Warrant Officer Peter Johnson on 076 908 5742 We are once again calling on the community not to accept lifts from strangers. Ladies must also refrain from hiking as they are placing their own lives in danger.

THE Lydenburg SAPS are investigating a case of man stealing after a 19 year old lady was allegedly abducted at about 14:00 on the Monday the 2nd of September. It is being alleged that the woman was hiking from Lydenburg to Spekboom on the Ohrigstad road, when she was picked up by two men in a black Toyota Corolla. According to information, the men allegedly pointed her with a firearm and apparently forced her to eat something at a garage in Ohrigstad after which she allegedly lost consciousness. She was apparently kept in a semi-unconscious state, until she later woke up in an unknown place before she was

Statistics on mining in the province. FINAL enviro approval stage for new Mpumalanga coal mine. The public is invited to comment on the final environmental-impact report and the environmental management programme for the new mine until October 7. The final scoping report has been in the hands of the Department of Mineral Resources since May. The newly merged GlencoreXstrata entity is to be listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in the last quarter of this year. The synergies created by the merging of the coal divisions of the merged companies are expected to reduce the costs of the combined entity by $567-million in 2014. The merger creates the world's leading seaborne thermal coal business, combining a multi-region, multi-quality production base of more than 120-million tons marketed through the group's global support infrastructure. Some $65-million of the $576-million saving will be the result of corporate restructuring and the company is targeting a production cost of $50/t free on board (FoB) on average across its thermal coal business globally. The coking coal business aims to reduce its FoB cash cost by 28%. The combined entity has a strong base with close on 35-billion tons of resources on a measured, indicated and inferred basis and 3.9-billion tons of reserves on a proven and probable basis globally. Projects include the eight-million-ton-a-year Tweefontein life-extension project, also in Mpumalanga, and the Zonnebloem project, which adjoins the now integrated Optimum colliery. The company's 3.6million-ton-a-year Wonderfontein project is expected to begin producing next year. GlencoreXstrata coal marketing head,Tor Peterson, said the current oversupply of coal in the market should be seen against the planned coming on line of 1 600 more coal-fired power stations in 59 countries by 2020.The integrated GlencoreXstrata is managing 155-million tons of production a year, 80-million tons out of Australia, 46million tons out of South Africa and 29-million tons from Colombia.The company expects to be managing 179-million tons by 2016.In South Africa, it sells 25-million tons of thermal coal into the domestic market and 20-million tons into the export market.

ASA Metals and Dilokong Chrome Mine thank their employees --- Company Values, the key to success

ASA Metals / Dilokong Chrome Mine lodged their 'Rehlokomelaka Kudu', (We Care More), intervention, as part of their theory of constraints program to improve efficiencies at their Mine and Smelter operations. This is the flagship programme for the company in 2013 and is designed to align management and employees attitudes and behaviour with the company's values and goals. All permanent employees are scheduled to attend this programme. The Rehlokomelaka Kudu program was launched in March 2013, together with external consultants and the Gearon team at Hannah Game Lodge, with various teambuilding activities, including the high rope and team activity course, conducted over two days. The working teams take part in the various games designed to develop various areas of team cohesion and interaction. The key focus is on developing individual and team leadership skills, planning for daily activities, to enable the team to reach daily targets, as well as that each team member has to take ownership for his or her responsibilities, in collaboration and support from other team members. Therefore, one of the major challenges of the day is the completion of the high rope course which also helps team members to master their fears, and also to receive the support of their fellow team members to complete the course. Although the intervention is just approximately 50% complete, the mine has already increased some of their efficiencies on developing meters of ore mined with more than 100% improvement and on new face advance meters mined with more than 20%, compared to the same time last year. The company is looking forward to completing the first phase of the Rehlokomelaka Kudu program. The Management Team would also like to thank their employees for the effort and commitment to ASA Metals and Dilokong Chrome Mine. They would also like to thank Gearon for their assistance.

OP Vrydag, 6 September het Oppiplot Park se eerste Indoor Krieket Myn Liga finaal plaasgevind en 16 spanne het meegeding. Die liga het Maandag- en Woensdagaande plaasgevind. Die finaal was tussen The Jalapeno's en CMI (A) vir die Plaat gespeel. The Jalapeno's het 'n dapper poging aangewend in die eindstryd, maar CMI (A) het met die goue medalje weggestap. In die Super groep, was dit ? taai stryd om die top 4 spanne te bepaal en het Twee Riviere A ten einde laaste met 52 lopies teen Dullstroom geseëvier om derde plek te behaal. Die Super finaal was 'n naelbytwedstryd waarin PG Glass vir die eerste 13 boulbeurte voorgeloop het, maar toe het Eastern Chrome B van agter gekom om 'n gedugte PG Glass span met 17 lopies te klop! Alle spanne het deurgaans goeie sportmangees gehandhaaf en hoë gehalte krieket gelewer. Baie geluk aan Eastern Chrome B wat gekroon is as algehele wenner van Oppiplot Park Myn Liga (sien foto). Graag wil ons Atlas Copco bedank vir die skenking van die wisseltrofees vir die Super en Plaat wenners.

“MOENIE 'n klein begin gering skat nie – want jy weet nie waar dit gaan eindig nie.” Met hierdie woorde het Michelle Harding, gasspreker by Vrydagaand se glansgeleentheid vir die Tebelo Kinderdorp, haar toespraak begin. Harding, wat 'n paar jaar gelede opspraak verwek het met haar standpunt teen korrupsie in die plastiekpyp-bedryf, het vertel wat dit haar gekos het om op te staan vir haar Christelike geloof en beginsels. As jongste besturende direkteur in die bedryf, het sy aanvanklik nie besef hoe haar besluit om kartel-bedrywighede te ontbloot, haar lewe sou verander nie. “Ek het geweet dat ek alles op die altaar sou moes sit. Ek het soos Abraham gevoel – en ek het ook geglo dat God vir my 'n ram sou hê, dat Hy dit sou moontlik maak dat die waarheid sou uitkom maar dat ek terselfdertyd my pos sou behou. Maar Hy het 'n ander plan gehad,” was Michelle se woorde. Sy het geleer dat roeping in die korporatiewe bedryf, beteken om die harde pad te stap. En eers aan die einde, na haar summiere afdanking en die uiteindelike hofuitsprake, het sy verstaan dat God iemand nodig gehad het om 'n 40-jaar oue kartel oop te breek. “As die Here 'n salwing op jou geplaas het, moet jy dit uitsien tot en met die laaste hoofstuk.” Sy het Lydenburg se besighede uitgedaag om aan te meld in hul eie sfeer van invloed en op te staan vir wat reg is – om so ons dorp en omgewing en uiteindelik die land en sy ekonomie te verander. Die gala-banket is bygewoon deur sowat tagtig sakemense uit die omgewing. Tenoor Etienne van der Nest het tussendeur Bev Marais se uitmuntende geregte vir opera en ligte sangnommers gesorg. Ds Elza Meyer het ook verduidelik hoe noodsaaklik 'n kinderdorp nie net vir ons provinsie is nie, maar ook om ons land te red van misdaad en ongekende pyn. Daar is tans vyf en 'n halfmiljoen weeskinders in ons land – wat aan hulle eie lot oorgelaat is en meestal deur ander kinders grootgemaak word. “Ons toekoms lê in ons hande. Ons land kan 'n plek word waar die wêreld kan kom kyk hoe mense hul verskille kan begrawe en kan heel word,” was Meyer se woorde. Deur Gerda Whitehorn.

Ds. Fred Wilson

Ds Elza Meyer en Louis Brittz op verhoog BYNA 'n jaar se beplanning en harde werk het die naweek werklikheid geword vir ds Fredrick Wilson en die Turn-2God-span. Dit het alles begin toe Fred teen einde 2012 besluit het om Lydenburg te laat hande vat met ds Elza Meyer en Turn-2-God Ministries. Die dubbeldoel was om enersyds 'n platform vir Christene te skep om opnuut hart, kop en hande na God te draai, maar ook om die fondasies te lê vir 'n Tebelo Kinderdorp in die Lydenburg-omgewing. Vroeg in die jaar het 'n span tussengangers elke Saterdagoggend net na sonsopkoms by die bidklippe op die Longtompas bymekaar gekom en God se wil afgebid. Die groot dag was Saterdag 14 September. Paaie is geskraap, tente, tydelike toilette en 'n reuse-verhoog is opgerig. Louis Brittz en orkes het die lofprysing gelei en ds Elza Meyer het toeskouers gemaan om terug te draai na God toe, om nie met dieselfde oë na Lydenburg te kyk nie en om elkeen by homen haarself te begin. Les Cloete het die geleentheid met die ramshoring begin en afgesluit. Lofdansers, perderuiters en die goue trompetblasers het die skare se lofprysing aangevul met die simboliese uitdra van God se opdrag na die vier uithoeke van die aarde. Op Sondag het verskillende kerke van Lydenburg op die Hoërskool se rugbyveld byeengekom vir 'n gesamentlike diens deur ds Elza Meyer, met Louis Brittz weer agter die mikrofoon. Dit was ook die afsluiting van die Sleutels-tot-Lewe reeks wat deur die hele provinsie gevolg is. Ds Fred Wilson en die Turn-2-God-span bedank al Lydenburg se besighede en die talle individue wat so ruimskoots bygedra het tot die sukses van die naweek. Deur Gerda Whitehorn.

DIE lang verwagte “Turn To God” byeenkoms bo-op die berg tussen Paardeplaats en die Aartappelraad het Saterdag 14 September plaasgevind. Die weer het gelyk asof dit sou reën, wat waarskynlik ’n klomp mense weggehou het, aangesien die opkoms nie heeltemaal aan verwagtinge voldoen het nie. Die weer was egter perfek, met hoë wolke wat die sonbrand weggehou het en ’n baie ligte briesie wat die hitte getemper het. Die organisasie, parkering, geriewe, verhoog en klanktoerusting was uit die boonste rakke. Toegangspaaie is gedurig natgegooi om stof te beperk. Die lofprysing deur Louis Britz met sy musikante en die boodskap deur Elza Meyer was pragtig en opbouend. Daar is gesing, gejubel, gebid en daar was perderuiters en lofdansers op die program. Dit was werklik ’n diep spirituele byeenkoms en ons is seker dat die saadjie wat geplant is vir mense om na God te draai, goeie vrugte sal afwerp. Ons sê dankie aan ds. Fred Wilson en sy span vir ’n onvergeetlike dag. Nog fondse word benodig om al die rekeninge te betaal. Skakel gerus vir Ds. Fred by 013 235 2504 of epos hom by Andre Coetzee

THE Ford EcoSport mini-SUV has arrived on the local market and looks to strike a neat balance between the affordability and driving dynamics of a compact car and the versatility of a compact SUV. Measuring in at just under four metres, the EcoSport is underpinned by the same global-B platform that forms the foundations of the Ford Fiesta and has a respectable 200 mm of ground clearance; enough, Ford claims, to give the EcoSport a wading depth of 550 mm. Even so, the EcoSport is still a genuine round town proposition thanks to its tight turning circle, high seating position and a pull drift compensation setting on the electrically assisted power steering, that gives the rack a fingertip-twirling lightness, that aids low-speed manoeuvring. The most notable member of the EcoSport engine line-up is the awardwinning 1,0-litre EcoBoost turbopetrol unit. Developing 92 kW and 170 N.m of torque, Ford claims an average fuel consumption of 5,7 litres/100 km for this engine. Next up is Ford’s 1,5-litre global petrol engine with outputs of 82 kW and 138 N.m. This unit returns 6,5 litres/100 km. The most frugal offering is the 1,5 TDCi turbodiesel. Serving up 65 kW and 205 N.m of torque, this model returns a claimed fuel consumption of 4,6 litres/100 km. All EcoSport models feature a five-speed manual gearbox, with the exception of the 1,5 petrol Titanium model which is fitted with Ford’s sixspeed dual-clutch Powershift transmission. The cabin lifts a number of cues from the Fiesta and features an array of storage spaces that are complemented by a load bay measuring 705 dm3 with the 60:40 split-folding rear benches tumbled. With the exception of the entry-level petrol model, Ford’s SYNC connectivity system (Bluetooth, voice control, USB media player) is

standard across the range. Entry-level Ambiente specification includes such features as electric front windows, air conditioning, electric wing mirrors and a 4-speaker radio/CD/MP3 audio system. Trend specification adds such features as steering wheel-mounted audio controls, extended trip computer, black roof rails and 16-inch alloy wheels. The range-topping Titanium specification brings in leather upholstery, electric windows all round, 6-speaker audio system, climate control, cruise control and front/rear foglamps, among others. On the safety and security front, all models feature dual front-, side and curtain airbags, Isofix child seat anchor points and remote central locking at the rear. ABS is offered on most models with stability control on highers p e c c e d models. Pricing (incl. VAT and CO2):

Nissan Sentra Acenta CVT R253 600 Both models come with a 3-year/90 000 km service plan and a 3-year/100 000 km w a r r a n t y. S e r v i c e intervals are every 15 000 km.

AFTER an absence of eight years, the Nissan Sentra has returned to SA in a bid to capture a slice of the local Csegment market. The new sedan’s curvaceous styling broadly echoes that of the recently introduced Almera, with a prominent chrome grille, headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights and crescent-shaped brakelamp accents. A set of 16-inch alloy wheels round off the package. The cabin is a simple, conservative affair that, thanks to a 2 700 mm wheelbase, serves 3 up plenty of space for its occupants, including a 510 dm boot. Among the areas upon which Nissan has placed particular emphasis are accessibility, with the new car ’s dimensions lending an additional 30 mm of shoulder room, as well as claiming a marked improvement in NVH.

The two locally offered Nissan Sentra models are powered by a 1,6-litre, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder petrol engine. This unit develops 85 kW and 154 N.m of torque, and is offered with a choice of five-speed manual or CVT gearboxes. According to Nissan, the manual model returns an average fuel consumption of 6,6 litres/100 km and the CVT 6,2. The CO 2 emissions stand at 156 and 149 g/km for the manual and CVT, respectively. Among the Sentra’s standard comfort and convenience features are; remote central locking, multifunction steering wheel with reach and rake adjustment, radio/CD/MP3/USB/aux/iPod audio system, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, air conditioning, and electric windows and mirrors. The Sentra’s safety features include six airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, Isofix child seat anchorage points and doors that lock automatically upon pull-away.

Aanloop tot die stigting van 'n Museum vir Lydenburg

VRYDAG 15 November 1963 berig die Lydenburg Nuus dat hul soektog na oudhede en staaltjies uit die vroeë dae van Lydenburg ten einde 'n Museum vir Lydenburg te bewerkstellig, goed vorder en dat die idee van 'n eie museum meer begin posvat by inwoners van die dorp en distrik. Op daardie stadium lui die berig, was daar reeds baie van Lydenburg se Museumstukke in bewaring in Johannesburg en Pretoria. Inwoners word dan uitgenooi om met idees vorendag te kom hoe om die nodige fondse bymekaar te maak ten einde die ideal van 'n eie Museum te bewerkstellig. “In die ou plaashuis van die Schoeman broers op Sterkspruit het ons byvoorbeeld 'n riempiestoel gesien wat oorspronklik aan Piet Retief se broer behoort het, en as trougeskenk gegee is aan Landdros A.F. Jansen en sy bruid.” Op die wyse word voorbeelde gestel van die tipe items wat moontlik vir 'n museum versamel kan word. Verder word berig oor 'n sabel wat aan Mr Schoeman geskenk is, asook 'n geweer wat behoort het aan Generaal Ben Viljoen, asook verskeie ander items soos 'n goue pond gedateer 1874, Maxim masjiengeweerdoppe wat by Berg-en-Dal

opgetel is en 'n “Staats Courant” gedateer 1867 asmede twee riempiestoele vanuit die Kaap. Die berig slaan dan oor na Engels soos eie aan die Lydenburg Nuus tot op hede, en daar word genoem dat: “a unique old gold scale in the Standard Bank, at one time the only bank in town”, in 'n uitmuntende toestand was al was dit laaste gebruik in 1896. Die betrokke skaal was gebruik om die algehele gewig

article the editorial staff remarks: “We notice that whisky was priced at 45c per bottle and London Dry Gin at less than 30c per bottle. All this, taking into consideration that all liquor was imported and that duty had to be paid as well as railage to Machadodorp and transportation from there to Lydenburg. It would also appear that 'Berg' beer is nothing new as it was sold then already at the Club”. Yes indeed! Them was the “Good Old Days.”

Players are excited about soccer league

Springbok Sevens playing locally The Nashua Middelburg Sevens festival is bringing world-class sevens action to SA, as the emerging South African and Welsh Sevens teams go head-to-head in an epic pre-season clash ahead of this year's HSBC Sevens World Series. The festival will be celebrating its sixth year on the 20th and 21st of September as the event plays out at Middelburg Hoërskool. The Welsh and emerging South African men's sevens teams will be joined by Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana as they lock horns ahead of the 2013 / 2014 season. Besides the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens tournament that takes place each year in the first week of December, the Nashua Middelburg Sevens festival is the only opportunity local sevens fans will have to watch their favourite South African Sevens players play on home soil. Fans will also be able to watch some of SA's top local provincial teams battling it out on Friday and Saturday. Catch the Sharks, the Vodacom Blue Bulls, the Steval Pumas, Border and Toyota Free State as well as a host of local women's and high school sevens teams. There will even be a “Bulletjie” division this year for under 6s and under 8s, where local youngsters will be given the chance to play on the same field as their heroes. “The decision to sign on as the official tournament sponsor of the

Nashua Middelburg Sevens festival was first made by Nashua in 2011 as we saw great potential for the growth of both the event itself and the development of sevens rugby in South Africa,” said Dave Hallas, Marketing Director of Nashua Limited. “From a development perspective, a coaching clinic will be taking place just prior to this year's Nashua Middelburg Sevens festival which will be hosted by Living Ball, a professional team that travels the world reaching out to underprivileged communities to give hope through sport to those that need it most. Living Ball will visit 10-15 surrounding schools in the Middelburg region and will also host a clinic for the township teams that Nashua is supporting with jerseys and shorts,” said Hallas. The Nashua Middelburg Sevens festival, which has become the most anticipated event in Mpumalanga's annual sporting calendar, has benefited various institutions by donating more than R250 000 to local schools and other charities. This year's festival will feature an entertainment park which Spur will be building for children to play in, a world-class beer garden courtesy of Castle and a big screen to catch all of the day's action on. Tickets cost R20 and will be available from the gate. For more information, visit

Rooi en Swart vir Arrie Heyl! Mashishing United is playing in a league, which has created huge excitement amongst the players. The league is sponsored by Steers and it includes 10 soccer balls. This will enable the team to train. Mash United wants to thank Steers and the league knows that it will give its best in the upcoming matches. From left is Makhehleni Grootboom, coach and Stevens Manzini manager of Mashishing United.

Arrie Heyl (Jnr) wat skoolgaan by Steelpoort Akademie, is by die Pumas 7's se o/13 rugbyspan ingesluit.

Hy en sy spanmaats gaan 23 en 24 September in Pretoria in die Nasionale byeenkoms uitdraf. Hierdie toernooi is beter bekend as die 7s Craven toernooi. Baie geluk aan Arrie en sy spanmaats.
