T

he SAPS Diving Squad from Nelspruit, the Lydenburg K9 Unit and Lydenburg SAPS were some of the units that helped with the search for a little girl that drowned on Saturday afternoon. Emergency services were informed that a group of children were playing under the Spekboom Bridge, on the Lydenburg / Ohrigstad road, and that a girl went missing. It was unclear if she fell in the water or went for a swim. A helicopter was also used for the search on Monday. Capt M. A. Mashabela confirmed on Tuesday that the girl was found around noon. She must have drifted downstream with the current. She was found about 2km from the place where she went missing. Her name had not yet been released by the time the Highlands Panorama News went to print. One of the rescuers on the scene was Mr Deon Broekman. Other volunteers were also on the scene to look for the girl. The river was very strong due to high volumes of rain in the catchment area. This made it difficult for the search-and-rescue units. ~ Michelle Boshoff

Woman bitten on foot by snake A woman from Lydenburg was admitted to the Lydenburg Hospital on Wednesday 5 February after being bitten by a Mozambique Spitting Cobra. Well known snake conservationist Neels Bothma was called to the hospital and he took the photo (right). She was reported to be in a stable condition. Serious tissue damage can occur if a wound like this is not treated correctly. The snake was killed during the biting incident. Phone Neels Bothma at 082 7303047 or Paul at 079 983 6818 for assistance or advice on how to handle situations like these.


Construction on R37 stopped, or so it seems

Total estimated cost was R 19 974 576 Every motorist that uses the R37, between Lydenburg and Burgersfort knows that the roadworks feel like a never ending problem. The Tubatse Municipality announced in 2011 already what this road will cost . On the SANRAL website it states: “The municipality will contribute 50% if SANRAL can provide 50% of the funding. A public–private partnership will be performed for the construction of formal trading areas.” The previous contractors are not in sight and all the departments were unavailable for comment on who the new contractors are and how soon they think the road will be finished. Numerous accidents occur here daily.

Hoorhierso oor Judaskas was reg in die kol Theresa Matthews van Lydenburg skryf: Na aanleiding van die rubriek Hoorhierso op 6 Februarie 2014 deur Michelle Boshoff: U het die voorgenome huwelik tussen Agang en die DA opgesom met die woord Judaskus. Trou is nie perdekoop nie. Mens moet mooi dink oor jou voorgenome huweliksmaat. Die DA is van die begin af mislei maar ek en my vriende gaan nie weer DA stem nie want hulle kan weer mislei wod.

Stem vir verandering registreer nou Dr Pieter Mulder, VF+ Leier skryf: In die vorige algemene verkiesing (2009) het 43% van alle Suid Afrikaners wat mag stem, nie gestem nie. As net die helfte van hierdie nie stemmers teen die ANC gaan stem het, het die ANC verloor. Die gevolg was dat die ANC die verkiesing gewen het terwyl maar slegs 37% van alle Suid Afrikaners wat mag stem vir hulle gestem het. Daar is beslis rede vir ongelukkigheid oor wat tans in Suid Afrika aangaan. Daarom is dit tyd vir verandering. Om te kla is geregverdig, maar dit alleen gaan nie verandering meebring nie. Die eerste tree om verandering te weeg te bring is om te registreer om te kan stem. Indien u nie verlede naweek kon registreer nie, het u wel nog die geleentheid om by u plaaslike munisipale verkiesingskantoor te r e g i s t r e e r. U k a n d i e O n a f h a n k l i k e Verkiesingskommissie se tolvryenommer 0800118000 skakel vir nader inligting hieroor. Jy kan jou ID nommer na 34139 SMS om vas te stel of jy geregistreer is. Indien jy geregistreer is, kan jy steeds besluit om nie later te gaan stem nie. Indien jy nie geregistreer is nie en jy sou dalk in die hitte van die verkiesingstryd kort voor stemdag besluit om tog te stem, kan jy nie.

LYDENBURG is ’n klein dorpie en as sulks ly dit erg aan ’n tipiese kleindorp sindroom. As jy nuut in die dorp intrek, word jy met agterdog beskou as ’n “inkommer” en sukkel jy jou as af om deel te word van een of ander kliek. So sê die nuwe mense. Ek sal nie weet nie, ek is hier van hoërskooltyd (1969) af en het met ’n gebore Lydenburger getrou. Ek was wel in matriek die

HOORHIERSO, met Valentynsdag wil ek ook ’n eiertjie lê. Eerste liefde, niks so soet en intensief nie. Só moet mens van baie hoor wat dit al ondervind het. Jou eerste liefde is mos jou grootste. Dit maak die grootste indruk op jou. Sien, op Hoorhierso is daar nie 'n lewende wese wat te veel oe en aa oor die liefde nie. Miskien is ek nog nooit hard genoeg oor my kop geslaan daarmee nie. Maar tog maak ek altyd die regte aanmerkings as iemand my van hulle pragtige verhouding vertel. En ook hoe hulle ontmoet het. Moet tog bieg, met die ontmoet deel konsentreer ek bietjie harder. Mens weet nooit, dalk vang ek 'n paar idees waar om my beterhelfte eendag te ontmoet. Let wel: eendag en ek weet nie van die beter nie! Nou die dag vertel 'n dame my van haar interessante ervaring. Vreemde emosies, vertel sy, het weer by haar opgekom toe sy met die man praat met wie sy in 1972 uitgegaan het. Die man het haar die trekpas gegee na die eerste week wat sy begin skoolhou het. 'n Ryk boeredogter het hom gesteel. Dit het by haar uitgekom dat die man kanker onder lede het en sy besluit toe om hom te skakel. Sy kry toe nou die dag 'n sms waarin hy om verskoning smeek vir destyds se hartseer. Eintlik, vertel sy ook, het hy niks verkeerd gedoen nie. Jy besluit mos maar self wie moet jou lewensmaat wees. En sy wonder: Kan dit moontlik wees dat na 30 jaar dieselfde liefde gevoel by jou opkom? Sy was 22 jaar oud. Ou-liefdes het mos 'n manier om by jou te spook. Bekende Emily Brontë het geskryf oor die liefde… soos ewige kranse. “Waarvan ons siele ook al gemaak is, syne en myne is dieselfde… en wie, vra ek jou, wie sal ons van mekaar skei? Knut Hamsun, 'n literêre fundi het die liefde beskryf as 'n “wind wat suis deur die rose, nee, 'n vlammende vuur in die bloed. Die liefde is 'n musiek soos heet soos die het en laat selfs die ou mense se harte dans. O, die liefde, dis 'n somernag met sterre aan die hemel en geur op die aarde. Dit het een lentedag op aarde gekom toe 'n jongeling twee oë gesien het, twee oë. Hy staar en sien. Toe is dit asof twee ligte mekaar in sy hart ontmoet, 'n son wat weerlig teen 'n ster. Toe hoor en sien hy niks meer in die wêreld nie. En die liefde het die wêreld se ontstaan en die wêreld se heerser geword. Soos die spil waarom alles draai, sê die wat weet...

enigste seun met ’n motorfiets en is derhalwe ook met groot agterdog bejeën. Die spietkop oom (Dirk Hoffman) wat my moes toets vir my lisensie was baie kwaai! Ewenwel, gerugte “rumours” is altyd hier aan die orde van die dag. En ontug. Toe ek Lydenburg Kommando se Inligtingsoffisier geword het, het ek agtergekom wie kuier by wie, bedags as die antie se man gewerk het. Daar agter die hospitaal, oor die spoor na oom Gert Weilbach se plaas toe, het gereeld twee bekende motors gestaan met die klere sommer so op die dak. En elke dag was dit twee ander motors, van vername mense. Een storie wou dit hê dat as die lokasiebrug in die nag wegspoel, daar ’n klomp ouens

met rooi gesigte anderkant die rivier vasgekeer sou wees. Gesiene ouens. So hoor ek ook elke week hier by die koerant dat die een besigheidsman kwaad is vir die ander en nooit weer met hom besigheid sal doen nie. Dit, sê ek altyd, sal nie werk nie, want dan gaan hier 400 besighede in dié dorp wees, wat glad nie sake doen nie. So, ek speel dikwels of vredemaker, of ek kalmeer ’n kwaai ou en hou die storie uit die koerant! En die ouens vertrou my, want ek praat nie uit nie. Diskresie is die ding! Ek word baie gekritiseer omdat ek nie oor ’n storie skryf of uitpraat nie, maar dit is my manier. My ma het my ten spyte van die motorfiets, goed grootgemaak. En ten spyte van Lydenburg se kleindorp sindroom, verruil ek dié plek vir geen ander ter wêreld nie. Dit, ongeag van al die geskinder, beneuktheid en die ontug! Hierdie is my dorp en meestal my mense!


Mr Mark Holder, the owner and falconer of the Dullstroom Bird of Prey & Rehabilitation Centre is currently very ill. Everyone at the centre, Dullstroom residents and his friends wishes him all the best.

CONNOR Boshoff (10) has been volunteering at The Dullstroom Bird Of Prey & Rehabilitation Centre since last August. A Brown Snake Eagle was brought in by members of the public and was found to have been shot in the wing. Needless to say that the medical care required for the Eagle amounted to quite a bit of money. This centre relies heavily on donations from the public to keep its doors open. Connor decided to start a collection for the Eagle to assist in covering it's medical bills. This he did by means of speaking to the visitors of the Centre during morning and afternoon flying displays, explaining why the Snake Eagle had been brought in and on the progress it was making in the Centre's hospital bay. He had raised about R4000 when the contents of the donations tin was stolen from the Centre. He's so sad that all their hard work seems to have been for nought. The Centre does such a huge job to make

A music dream comes true for singer from Mashishing EVERYTHING that the late Mr Nelson Mandela stood for inspired a local singer to bring out his first CD. His dream came true when he finally held the CD in his hands. Mr Jafta Bestenbier (38) was born in Mashishing. He has always had a passion for singing. His songs are generally about love

Jafta Bestenbier (38) proudly shows of his first CD that he made in memory of the late Mr Nelson Mandela.

Briewe: Kat se pad voor aanneming Ongelukkig oor kat skryf: Familie van my in Lydenburg het vanoggend die koerant berig gesien oor die katjie wat glo by wimpy gelos was. Daardie katjie se naam is Moesie. Ons het getrek van Lydenburg af Rustenburg toe en ons kon ongelukkig nie vir Moesie na die huis toe vat waarheen ons getrek het nie. Ons sou vir Moesie by familie hier in Rustenburg gelos het waar hulle baie mooi na Moesie sou kyk. Maar toe ons die oggend by Wimpy stop vir ’n take-a-way oppad Rustenburg toe het ’n werker by wimpy gesê sy soek groot asseblief vir Moesie en sy belowe sy sal baie mooi na hom kyk. Ons het toe al Moesie se goedjies ( komberse, speelgoed, kos, bakkies, en sand) vir haar gegee en met dit het ons vir haar R400 gegee om nog goedjies te kan gaan koop vir Moesie. Ek was met ’n baie seer hart daar weg daardie dag maar ek was gerus gestel deur haar en haar belofte om baie mooi na my kat te kyk. Toe ek vanoggend die berig sien was my hart in stukke in geskeur.

and life. “I must share how I feel with the people. Madiba inspired me with the life he led. “The youth should not do crime, focus on school and their future. I believe reggae music has a positive influence and is a good genre for the

youth to understand,” Jafta said. The songs on the CD includes Mandela, Bye Bye Madiba, Stop Abuse, We are Happy, Rasta, I believe, Never give up, Mama, Vote and Don’t Cry. Jafta has performed at several local venues

and on the local radio station Mash FM. Contact him to perform at an event on 072 152 1665. He is an untrained and a self-made singer who develops music from his soul.


Van Toeka tot Nou ’n Groot dag in Lydenburg

Die Sweefspoor oor Lydenburg Waterval.

GEDURENDE die begin van die sestigerjare in die vorige eeu het veelvuldige ontwikkelings in Lydenburg gesorg vir 'n dag van merkwaardige gebuertenisse. “Ek kom hierop af terwyl ek deur die Lydenburg Nuus Jubileum Uitgawe van Junie 1962 blaai ,” het mnr JP Celliers, Kurator van die Lydenburgse Museum gesê. Die opskrif bokant die hoofberig in die Lydenburg Nuus van 19 Maart 1961 het gelui: “Dag van Groot Gebeure in Lydenburg”. Op daardie dag het Sy Edele die Administrateur van Transvaal Mnr F.H. Odendaal ons dorp besoek waar hy ten eerste by die F.C. Braun akwarium gaan draai het om die fasiliteit by die Provinsiale Visseryinstituut amptelik te open. Na die amptelike opening het Mev Olive McGee die naamplaat ter ere van haar wyle vader Mnr F.C. Braun, visserypionier van Lydenburg, onthul. Op dieselfde dag het die Administrateur die Munisipale Sweefspoor by die hidroelektriesekragstasie geopen. Die dag is afgesluit met die amptelike opening van die Lydenburg Olimpiese-standaard Munisipale Swembad deur mnr. C.H. Bauling, voormalige Burgemeester van Lydenburg. Ekblaai ook deur ou Munisipale dokumente wat dateer uit hierdie

tydperk en sien dat die Munisipaliteit 'n paar dae voor hierdie datum die ingebruikneming van die hidroelektriese kragsentrale asook die swembad op 10 Maart 1961daargestel het. Na afloop van die verrigtinge is 'n “Vleisbraai by swembadpark om 5 n.m.” gereel waar inwoners van die dorp onthaal sou word. Die Raad wou egter vooraf weet hoeveel gaste daar sou wees en 'n lys is opgestel en tenders uitgesit vir boerewors en skaaptjops wat gebraai sou word! Die raad het 'n kwotasie van Lydenburg Butchery aanvaar vir 10001200 pond boerewors en ongeveer 100 pond se tjops met die spesifikasie dat die wors voorsien moet word in 1 pond stukke! Dit teen 'n koste van een shilling en agt pennies per pond vleis. Dus ongeveer R2-34 in vandag se terme, doen die somme, dit is spotgoedkoop! Tydens die verrigtinge is 'n pajamaresies gehou asook swemgala waar seuns en dogters o/12 vir 25 tree vryslag geswem het en daarna die o16 kindersvryslag van 50 meter. 'nWorsresies, demonstrasies deur Pretoria swemmers en 'n duikvertoning is het ook deel uitgemaak van die feesvieringe. Vandag bestaan die Munisipaleswembad nie meer nie en die huidige Spur en “SwembadSentrum” is nou op die perseel geleë. Die akwarium by die MTPA en Lydenburg Omgewingsentrum is egter steeds in gebruik. ~ JP Celliers, Lydenburg Museum.


Valentynsdag 14 Feb Valentines Day How Do I Love Thee? How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee to the level of every day's Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love with a passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints, -- I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life! -- and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death. Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Aandete by Bistro @ 59 D e c o r Wa re h o u s e , Ly d e n b u r g s e restaurant gedeelte, Bistro @ 59 is alom bekend vir hulle heerlike ontbyt en middagetes. Nuwe bestuur, onder leiding van Wikkie van Rooyen en Louis Naude het dit goedgedink om nou ook aandetes te bedien. Almal kla dat

hier nie restaurante is waar jy heerlik kan ontspan en tog ook keurige aandetes kan kry nie. Die manne skop dan ook met Valentynsaand af met ‘n spyskaart waar jy ‘n keuse van twee voorgeregte, hoofgeregte en nageregte kan van kies vir jou en die liefde in jou lewe. Besprekings moet gedoen word want daar is nog net ’n paar sitplekke oor. Die kosse word voortreflik en keurig voorgesit en goeie diens is aan die orde van die dag, so maak gerus daar ‘n draai en oordeel self. Probeer gerus Wikkie se Chilli & Chocolate met Berry Compote.

Highlands Panorama en Pam Golding se straatfront-kompetisie DIS weer sulke tyd! Highlands Panorama en Pam Golding Eiendomme het besluit om die reën effe langer kans te gee om ons dorp groen te kry vir ons jaarlikse Straatfrontkompetisie. Nes laasjaar, het die Pam Golding-span hul tekkies aangetrek en die dorp ingevaar om tuine af te neem. Nie noodwendig spogtuine of duur uitgelegde landskapstuine nie. Elke netjiese, goed versorgde tuin, glo Pam Golding en Panorama, is goed vir ons dorp – goed vir besoekers, vir potensiële nuwe eienaars en toeriste wat kan kies of hulle wil terugkom na ons stukkie mooi-op-aarde toe. Die doel van die oefening is om Lydenburgers enersyds aan te moedig om hulle straatfronte mooi te maak, en andersyds te bedank vir die ekstra tikkie trots wat pa (of ma) se Saterdae opneem. Wanneer agente met voornemende kopers of huurders deur die strate ry, bepaal hierdie eerste indrukke of mense kies om in 'n area te bly.

In die volgende paar uitgawes gaan Highlands Panorama van hierdie skelm foto's publiseer. Lesers wat die adresse kan eien, en dit met naam en nommer instuur na lydenburg@pamgolding.co.za, kan kwalifiseer vir 'n ete vir 2 persone by die Wimpy. Teen einde Maart, span ons weer twee van die dorp se bekende Groen Vingers - Cilla Young van Tumbleweed en Doreece Goldsmith van Imbali Tuinsentrum – in om saam met Redakteur Michelle Boshoff en Pam Golding-prinsipaal Elisme Swart die tien wen-tuine te kies. Vanjaar is die plan om 'n wenner elk in twee kategorieë aan te wys: Groot Tuine en Klein Tuine. Daar is 3 vakansiepryse op die spel – een vir elke wenner en een vir 'n leser wat die meeste adresse regraai. Hou Highlands Panorama dop – volgende week verklap ons meer. Vir meer inligting, skakel Miempie Nepgen by 013 235 1146 of lydenburg@pamgolding.co.za.

This sewerage stream in River Street, Lydenburg has still not been fixed. The Highlands Panorama News reported on this last week. The pump station is broken and the manholes are overflowing. Every day pedestrians and school children walk around it. It will leave you with a serious injury if you step into it. And don’t even mention the diseases. Thaba Chweu has been informed about this disaster for the past few week but it is has still not been fixed. This is a public appeal to Thaba Chweu to please fix all the problems relating to the health and safety of the town. ~ Michelle Boshoff

1st Scout Troup in Lydenburg ON Friday the 31St of January 2014 we had our first scout meeting at the St Johns Anglican church (24 Burger street) Scouting is a movement that aims to support our youth, regardless of colour, class or creed, in their physical, mental and spiritual development, so that they may play a constructive role in society, with a strong focus on outdoors and survival skills… Your son / daughter is following over 250 Million others who have been scouts. Today there are more that 16 Million members worldwide (100 00 in south Africa) in over 150 countries. Attending scouts, we get to learn the following: A scout is always courteous, a scout is a friend to all and a brother to every other scout; a scout is a friend to animals, a scout obeys orders and a scout smiles and whistles Van die tuinfinaliste

under all difficulties. There is an exciting program lined up in the following few months and possibly years ahead, with plenty outdoor adventures on offer.

LET'S not get confused here. The new Chevrolet Sonic RS is not a hot hatch in the same vein as the Polo GTI or Fiesta ST. Yet we could certainly get away with calling this a rather 'warm' hatch and one that bridges the gap between the commuter clan and the real hot stuff.

NEW DELHI, INDIA - It's only right that the Chevrolet Adra SUV concept should make its world debut at the Delhi Auto Expo.

Of course, the big draw card here is the price. Hitting the market at R225 300, the Sonic RS costs R35 000 less than a Fiesta RS, undercuts the Peugeot 208 GTI by R55 000 and the Polo GTI by almost R70 000. Sure, it doesn't come close to matching their heady power outputs, but the Sonic certainly rises above the mediocre with its 1.4-litre Ecotec turbopetrol, which is credited with 103kW at 6000rpm and 200Nm at 4000rpm and mated to a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox.

This chunky show car was developed entirely by Indian designers at GM's Technical Centre in Bangalore, using Chevrolet's global design language, infused with a healthy dose of Indian flavour, to appeal to the next generation of customers, who will follow in the tyre-tracks of those who rejected the Tata Nano as 'too cheap'.

That's enough, says Chevrolet, to get the little RS from 0-100km/h in 9.5 seconds and on to a top end of 197km/h. Turn your focus to feather footing, however, and the RS claims to sip just 6.6 litres per 100km on the combined cycle.

TRADITIONAL SUV

In keeping with its racy role in life, the RS comes with a modified exhaust system that aims to provide aural stimulation while still maintaining “comfortable” noise levels

The Adra has all the advantages of a traditional SUV - high ground clearance, exceptional all-around visibility, a high seating position and generous interior space - in a compact package with an overall length of less than four metres. "It represents a new possibility for the fast-growing compact SUV segment," said GM India boss Lowell Paddock in his presentation. He didn't mention a possible production version, but it's not unlikely given that GM India has no current model that competes with the Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport. So, currently this remains a concept, but as it looks a bit like a Kia Soul or a bit like the Ford EcoSport, it might be a viable model for GM. iol.motoring.co.za

in the cabin. What's more, the suspension has been lowered while stiffer, performance-tuned shocks aim to deliver a “firm-yet-comfortable” ride. Not only does it hug the ground, but RS makes its presence known on the street with gunmetal-painted 17-inch alloys, a bolder front bumper, chunky side skirts, new roof spoiler and an accented rear diffuser that houses a large trapezoidal exhaust tip. The sporty treats continue in the cabin in the form of a flat-bottomed steering wheel, aluminium pedals, various red and piano black finishes and seats covered in a combination of leather and ribbed suede. Let's not forget the RS emblems on the seats and steering wheel. Another bonus feature is the MyLink infotainment system, operated via a seven-inch touch-screen. Besides full smart-phone integration, MyLink allows owners to access audio streaming via Bluetooth and even play videos and view pictures, although thankfully it'll only allow the latter when the vehicle is stationary. MyLink is fitted as standard to the RS, along with cruise control, multi-function steering wheel, traction control and four airbags. In the end, the warm performance and R225 300 price (which in cludes a three-year/60 000km service plan) could make this a Goldilocks hatch. iol.motoring.co.za


HINO, the leading Japanese truck manufacturer and the first one from that country to enter the gruelling Dakar Rally, way back in 1991, registered its 23rd consecutive finish in the 2014 edition of this gruelling cross-country race which finished in Valparaiso, Chile, on January 18. The two-truck Hino Team Sugawara once again had a 100% finishing record and scored a 1-2 in the Dakar Challenge for trucks with engines of less than 10 litres capacity, making it five consecutive class wins. “We are delighted at yet another display of reliability and durability by Hino trucks in the toughest, regular test for this type of vehicle in open competition in the world,” commented the vice president of Hino South Africa, Dr. Casper Kruger. “The two, four-wheel drive Hino 500-Series trucks entered by Hino Team Sugawara were once again the only representatives from the Japanese truck industry to participate in this two-week marathon across some of the world's most desolate regions. The strong performance also served to underline Hino's competitive spirit and technological resources.” The truck crewed by Teruhito Sugawara and Hiroyuki Sugiura, of Japan, finished 12th overall out of the 50 finishers from an original entry of 71 trucks and won the Dakar Challenge for trucks with an engine capacity of less than 10 litres. This was the 14th time Hino has won this engine capacity award in the 15 times it has been contested since 1996. The second Hino, crewed by Teruhito's 72year-old father, Yoshimasa, and navigator Katsumi Hamura, placed 32nd overall and second in the under 10-litre Challenge. What makes the Dakar Rally a David and Goliath contest in the truck category is the fact that the Hino uses production-based six-cylinder intercooled turbocharged engines of less than 10-litres, while most of its rivals are in the “monster” category with much larger capacity engines developed specifically for this annual race. The chairman of Hino Motors Limited, Masakazu Ichikawa, was at the finish to welcome the two crews and said next year the target will be to get a Hino back in the top 10 overall as well as continuing to dominate the under 10-litre engine category. This year Yoshimasa Sugawara's truck was fitted with the Hino 9-litre common rail A09C turbo-intercooled engine which marked the first time the Hino team has used a power unit with a capacity greater than 8-litres. This was an on-event test of the larger capacity power unit in preparation for the 2015 event and the engine performed very well. The bigger engine develops 445kW of power and 1 950N.m of torque compared to 360kW of power and 1 425Nm of torque delivered by the 8-litre JO8C engine fitted to Teruhito Sugawara's No. 2 racing truck. This year's route, which started in Rosario, Argentina, and went into Bolivia before the finish in Valparaiso, Chile, was 9 188km in length, with 5 212km of the route making up the 13 timed special stages. The route included many timed special stages far longer than usual and a there was a lot of high altitude running, often above 3 000m, which was taxing on the crews and power sapping for the vehicles. This year Hino continued its long association with Team Sugawara, which is headed up by Yoshimasa Sugawara, who has entered the Dakar Rally 31 times consecutively – a record. He is the only Japanese to have competed in this epic race on a motorcycle and quad as well as in a car and truck. Now 72 years of age he holds the record for the most consecutive finishes in the Dakar Rally at 23. His son, Teruhito, contested the Dakar Rally for the 16th time in this year's race and this was only the third time he has finished outside the top 10. Hino, Iveco and Renault were the only three makes with a 100% finishing record in this year's race out of a field that also included Kamaz, MAN, MercedesBenz, DAF, Iveco, Maz, Ginaf and Tatra trucks. Interestingly the second Dakar in which Hino participated finished in Cape Town after starting in Paris, with the Japanese trucks in 4th, 5th, 6th and 10th positions. The big breakthrough came in 1994 with a second position overall. This achievement was repeated in 1995, 1997, 1998, 2001 and 2005. The most successful year for Hino was 1997 when it became the first and until 2011 the only maker to take the first three places overall in the truck category when the route went from Dakar to Agades and back to Dakar. In 2011 Kamaz, of Russia, became only the second truck maker to register a 1-2-3 finish and repeated this feat in 2013.

suspect these price-leaders might struggle at Highveld altitudes, but let's not even bother with this one as just R11 000 more gets you the rather competent “middlemannetjie” - which is a 1.6-litre credited with a fairly healthy 90kW at 6000rpm and 154Nm at 5200rpm. Though this engine is carried over, a bit of tinkering has improved official fuel consumption to 6.6 litres per 100km on the combined cycle. TOYOTA aimed to infuse a kind of anticipation of pleasure feeling into the 11th generation of the world's best-selling nameplate, just launched in South Africa this past week. The new Corolla doesn't look or feel much like a sports sedan and it isn't going to get your pulse racing into hospital-admittance territory anytime soon, but they've certainly hit the bull's eye on the maturity board, while making it more interesting in the process. Proportionally, they've massaged it in the right directions. Lowered by 5mm, lengthened by 75mm and widened by 15mm, the Corolla has more of a groundhugging stance on the road. Its predecessor looked a bit boxy from the back end, but Toyota has resolved this with a longer C-pillar slope angle that gives the Corolla a more integrated look. But have they performed any miracles underneath it? Nothing revolutionary to report on here - Corolla soldiers on with a revised version of the previous model's MacPherson strut front end and torsion beam rear suspension system. They've chipped away at an old-fashioned but successful formula and the results, felt after putting three versions through their paces in the Western Cape, is as you'd expect - a comfortable ride and safe-but-predictable road holding. The biggest change to the engine line-up is the availability of an all-new 1.4-litre turbodiesel engine, which comes to the party with 66kW and twisting force of 205Nm when the needle hits the 1800-2800rpm range. Though less powerful than the previous two-litre D-4D, which is no longer offered, the motor earns a couple of distinctions in its economy exams, with Toyota claiming a combined figure of 4.5 litres per 100km. This diesel also comes in at a significantly lower price, starting at R237 900. 66kW doesn't sound like enough to power a car of this size, yet those 205 newtons make for a surprisingly strong performer and though it has no track-day ambitions, I never cursed it for being underpowered. It's got just enough muscle to tackle the open road comfortably and given its relatively accessible price, it looks poised to become the next big talking point at sales strategy meetings. Yet, the traditional choices are still there. The three normally aspirated petrol engines all feature Toyota's Dual Variable Valve Timing technology, along with Acoustic Induction Control. This range kicks off with the familiar 73kW/128Nm 1.3-litre unit, starting at R214 900, which Toyota believes will appeal to fleet users. None were on offer on launch and I

Finally, the biggest and 'baddest' engine you can get in the new Corolla is a 1.8-litre with 103kW produced at 6400rpm and 173Nm at 4000rpm. All engine versions can be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, and the 1.6 and 1.8 engines can be paired to Toyota's new Multidrive transmission - basically a continuously variable transmission that has seven 'stepped' shift points. As for the experience from the helm, the new Corolla's design allows for a more inspiring driving position, thanks to a greater range of seat height adjustment and the steering column angle has been lowered by two degrees. After playing around with its various adjustments, I was quite happy behind the wheel. To improve its role as a family hauler, Toyota lengthened the wheelbase by 100mm, and slimmed down the front seatback by 10mm to provide “best in class” rear legroom. Toyota also made the rear passenger floor flatter by re-routing the exhaust pipe. After sitting behind my usual driving position I can tell you that there is plenty of stretching space in the back. As an average-sized adult, I had just enough headroom in the back, but taller humans will not be catered for here. There's more boot space too - 452 litres, or just enough to carry four golf bags. Depending on the engine selected, Corolla buyers are pretty much spoiled for choice with four specification flavours: Esteem, Prestige, Sprinter and Exclusive. As the most affordable model in the range, the Esteem comes with all the basic luxuries such as air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors, remote central locking and an aux/USB sound system. Next up is Prestige, which treats you to leather seats, Bluetooth hands-free system, a leather-covered multi-function steering wheel, touch-screen CD/DVD/MP3 player with reverse camera and 16” alloys. The Sprinter reverts back to half-leather seats and that conventional audio system but gains automatic climate control, 'smoked' (darkened) alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. Finally, the range-topping Exclusive gets all the good stuff you find in the Prestige, as well as cruise control, climate control, keyless start, TFT multiinformation display, rain-sensing wipers and an electrochromatic interior mirror. As a locally manufactured vehicle, built here in high volumes for local consumption and export, Toyota has come up with rather competitive pricing for its new sedan. It's a really solid car that's gained some refinement and class in its transition into its latest generation. If its predecessors (excluding the GLIs and RSis) could have veered towards Comfortably Numb, this one's a whole lot closer to Comfortably Elegant. Pricing ranges from R 214 900 to R 283 900.

Opportunity in Tourism Sector BRINGING the youth firmly within the sub-economic sector of responsible tourism has long been a goal of the Federated Hospitality Association of Southern Africa (FEDHASA), as well as other tourism organisations, both government and private. According to Caleb Mabaso, FEDHASA's head of Strategic Projects, the future success of the hospitality and tourism industry in South Africa depends on a strong talent pipeline of young people within the industry who will continue the legacy of responsible tourism that is being so carefully established in this country. He says at this stage, responsible tourism is being embraced by the hospitality and tourism industry in South Africa - they have even gone so far as to adopt national standards in responsible tourism, only the second country in the world to do this. He says this augurs well for the future of this potentially vibrant and sustainable subeconomy, but it does mean that tremendous focus needs to be placed on bringing the youth into the industry, inspiring them, training them, and encouraging them as they find their place in this sector. The vision of the Food Safety Programme, which specifically targets graduates from FET Colleges being launched this month, is to create a new career path within the hospitality industry. It entails placing students within hotels in positions of Food Service Assistants for a 12-month period to assess and monitor food safety issues within the hotels' food preparation, storage and service processes. The objectives of the tourism youth structure include training the youth through the provision of bursaries and scholarships, providing opportunities for the youth to access information on pursuing careers or entrepreneurial activities in the industry, providing accelerated skills development and management programmes, providing financial and mentorship programme opportunities, providing information on the legislative framework that governs the industry and offering membership benefits to stimulate domestic tourism.

Springbok 3 x skote op 300m en 6 x skote op 200m. Daar sal vergunning gebied word om gewere in te skiet tussen 07:00 tot 07:30, 11:00 tot 11:30 en 14:00 tot 14:30. Die Rooiboktabel gaan geskiet word met die boog, asook vlakvark en haasreplikas. Boogbelangstelling was groot en die “buds” het swaar deurgeloop. Enige boogjagter of skuts is meer as welkom om te kom saam skiet. Lede sal R50 betaal en nie-lede R75 per inskrywing vir die geweerafdeling en R50 per lid en R75 vir nie –lede per inskrywing vir die boogskiet. Eerste inskrywing vir dag sal gebruik word om wenners te bepaal en die telling sal gebruik word om te sien of skuts vir skietbalkies kwalifiseer. Inskrywingsgelde sluit ook in 'n lootjie, waarby die wenner 'n Rooibok Ram te Khumula Lodge Burgersfort kan gaan skiet. Kom geniet die dag saam met ons.

Lydenburg Akademie het weer goed op die sportveld presteer. Veertien van ons atlete gaan op 22 Februarie aan die Oos-Transvaal kampioenskappe deelneem. Ook op akademiese gebied gaan dit baie goed met die skool. Nie alleen het ons 'n 100% - slaagsyfer gehad nie, maar ons skool het bo gemiddeld presteer in die departementele vraestelle van Mpumalanga. Dit is die voordeel van kleiner klasse. Die foto's toon ons atlete tydens die kwalifiserende byeenkoms vir Oos-Transvaal kampioenskappe

Michelle Boshoff DIS 'n droom wat waar geword het. Maar elkeen se droom is nie om 'n myl in die Midmardam te gaan swem nie. Me. Elna Howell (62) van Ohrigstad en bykans haar hele familie het hierdie groot wêrelbekende swemmarathon aangepak op 8 Februarie. Die Midmar Myl vind elke jaar plaas net buite Howick, KwaZulu- Natal. Daar was 'n geskatte 14 687 swemmers hierdie jaar. Baie swemmers swem ten bate van niewinsgewende organisasies. Na haar pa se dood, wyle mnr. Coenraad Coetzer, het die hele familie besluit om ter nagedagtenis aan hom die Midmar te swem. Dit is iets wat hy in werking gesit het kort voor sy dood, want dit was altyd een van die drome om die myl (1,6km) af te lê. Elna se broer, Frikkie Coetzer, het van Tawoomba Australië, af gevlieg. Die ander was Hendrik Coetzer (58), Marean Kok (56), kleinkinders, Coenraad Coetzer (27), Theuns Coetzer (25), Dida Coetzer (21), en Elsie Muller (26) Carl Muller (29), Johan Kok (29, Coetzer Kok (27) en Christoff Kok (26).

Dis slegs Hendrik Coetzer wat nie die myl kon klaarmaak nie weens gesondheidsredes. “Ek het laas op skool geswem. En het ses weke in my buurvrou se swembad geoefen. 160 lengtes drie keer per week. Elkeen het hul eie roetine vir die oefening gehad. Party het Buffelspoort of Bronkhorstspruit damswemme gaan swem vir oefening voor die tyd,” het me. Elna Howell gesê. Volgens haar was die golwe en wind die ergste faktore. Tydens hulle afdeling, Item 3 (groepkepse) is 600 mense uit die water gehaal weens veiligheid. Die groep het klaar plek bespreek vir 2015 se Midmar. En hulle gaan dit gebruik as 'n familie reunie elke jaar. Dit was 'n ongelooflike ervaring vir die hele familie om hierdie groot 'myl' saam te kon aflê. • Teen Dinsdag is Thabo van Straten (43) nog nie gevind nie. Hy het vermoedelik verdrink in Item 3 Saterdag. Reddingsaksies is die hele naweek geloots. Hy het na Item 3 nie ingeteken nie.
