t sounds like a story right out of an adventure book. But the ordeal that the Bullen couple, from Badfontein outside Lydenburg went through can not be any more real. Mr John (80) and Mrs Lorraine Bullen (78) were on an African holiday in the Chobe District, near Kasane in Botswana. Their vehicle got stuck in a “sand” river late afternoon on Tuesday 13 September and they only had the bare essentials to survive on. They were about 120km inland, away from the river. They had tried to attract the attention of airplanes overhead but to no avail. Before the vehicle got stuck they had spoken to anti-poaching guards and fire guards in the area. The guards assured them that they were on the right path to the Savuti Camp. She said it is shocking that those roads are not blocked off. “We waited at the Landrover before we decided he should walk to Savuti,” said Mrs Lorraine Bullen. It is suspected that she is referring to Wednesday 14 September. “He left at around 17:00 in the afternoon (about 24 hours after becoming stuck) with a compass, bottle of water, a pillow case with two tins of fruit and Provita biscuits and a GPS. I waited for him to return and prayed that he’d be safe. He couldn’t take too much because he had to carry the five liters of water. “The days went by and I slowly started to realise that he may not come back or was not able to find our Landrover again. “When he left, he walked in the direction of the Savuti Camp, 36km from us. It was

suppose to be a two day walk,” she continued. By the eighth day, Mrs Bullen heard a vehicle approaching. It was a group of tourists from the Netherlands. They had also taken the wrong road and they landed in the sand river. “The Hollanders towed our Landrover to a police and army camp in the middle of the bush. The camp immediately sent out a search-and-rescue party for my husband. The Emergency Services in Botswana and Zambia also started a search party for Mr Bullen. Several teams were searching the area, including helicopters and 140 men on the ground. The International Police, Interpol, also joined the search. A sand storm delayed their search over the past weekend. Mrs Bullen decided to come home but the search is still on. She stayed at the Chobe Safari Lodge while she was recovering from the ordeal. “They were extremely kind to me and made me feel at home.” Her son, Mike Bullen, flew to Kasane to help her with all the arrangements. The Chobe District is the largest park in that part of Botswana. It is a tourist haven and known for the thousands of elephants and other wildlife that roam the area. Mrs Bullen said that they had nearly died in a veld fire while Mr Bullen was still with her. Poachers burned the grass to herd the animals. The Netherlands tourists told her they had found a dead elephant a couple of meters from her Landrover. “It was frightening, very frightening. The Lord will lead us through this.” The emergency services and police in Kasane haven’t given up hope that they will find Mr Bullen.

Shocking conditions in Mashishing Michelle Boshoff

W

hile residents in Lydenburg complain about garbage not being taken away, residents in Mashishing are living in the filth. It was with a great shock that Highlands Panorama News saw the first hand evidence of these horrific conditions. It seems as if some residents decided not to take garbage bags to the town’s dumping ground and dump it just on the border of the houses.

Even raw sewerage rivers are running through the township, between the houses. The residents have said that they are tired of living like pigs and that the municipality has forgotten about them. The Highlands Panorama News was just too late to take photo’s of people dumping bags but the evidence was still there. This is another question laid before Thaba Chweu - how can this happen? The stench and evident unhygienic conditions will turn any stomach by just looking at it, try living in it...

Michelle Boshoff ’n Bekende inwoner van Lydenburg het met tot haar skok agtergekom dat twee van haar ma en ’n familievriend se grafstene gesteel is. Me. Petro Joubert is Sondag na die Lydenburg Begraafplaas (oorkant CMI) om blomme op hul grafte te sit. Die grafstene van onderskeidelik haar ma, me. Catherine Gertrude Maritz en mnr. Frans Beetge, ’n familievriend, is gesteel. Oom Frans (Frans Jacobus Beetge) was ’n geliefde karakter en die Beetge’s is aan almal bekend. Me. Joubert was in Junie by die grafte om blomme op te sit. Me. Maritz en mnr. Beetge se grafte is in verskillende rye en ’n entjie uitmekaar uit. Dit word vermoed dat hierdie twee grafte opsetlik verwyder is en dat dit beplan is. Me.

Joubert was na dié ontdekking baie geskok en kon nie glo dat sy voor skoon grafte te staan kom nie. Sy het Dinsdag die munisipaliteit gebel, wat bevestig het dat die grafstene weg is en dat daar slegs sement is. Indien enige iemand inligting oor hierdie twee grafstene besit, word hulle versoek om die polisie of die Highlands Panorama Nuus by 013 235 2287 te skakel. Dit is ’n misdaad om grafstene te verwyder en tronkstraf kan opgelê word.

is myne. My dokter, my apteker, my Tuppervrou, my stoof, my yskas en my man. Almal en alles het 'n Dis Myne. Myne word voor alles gebruik. Lidwoorde, die of 'n, staan nie voor die bywoord nie, slegs myne word in die besitting-konteks gebruik. Dalk kom die gebruik daarvan voor by mense met 'n minderwaardigheidskompleks. Ek weet dat Beatrice se man Jacques is, maar sy verwys na hom as My Man. Elke keer as daar van hom gepraat word. Die verskynsel noem ek die verhoogde-bewussyn-van-eiendom-sindroom. Interessant. Die Myne, loop oor in lojaliteit vir diensverskaffers. Velsorg, smeersel, en vreetsels. My restaurant maak sus en my velroom werk so. Mense sal moeilik van Hul verskaffers afwyk. Net soos jou motorversiener, hetsy in sy agterplaas, hetsy in 'n motorhawe. Na 'n bestelling by 'n vreemde Tupper-verkoper raak ek onlangs lam van die skuldgevoel. Ek kan mos nie my gewone-behulpsame-vriendelikaltyd-betyds-bakkieverkoper in die steek laat nie. Sy is immers Myne. Dis net hoe dit is. Summier kanselleer ek die bestelling by die vreemde vrou. Hoe moet mev. Lojaal nou voel, as ek by iemand anders bestel. Sê nou sy kom in my huis en sien die nuwe Tupper wat nie by haar gekoop is nie. Vir Pille-sorg en apteeksake het ons vir oom Jaap. Vir hom vra jy advies van rooi oë tot 'n pyn in die groottoon. Ja, vir ernstige kwale is 'n dokter nodig. Daarvoor het jy Jóú dokter. En geen ander geneeskundige kan die kwaal laat wyk nie. Later voel hy soos familie en sy woord is wet. So moet 'n kapsel ook maar groei tot Jóú salonfundi haar skêr kan inlê. Vir 'n volle 18 jaar, het ek 'n tannie wat my kapsel snip. En as sy nie tyd het nie, moet dit maar so staan. Dié paar keer wat ek 'n ander haarkapper op proef gestel is, loop ek sielsongelukkig daar uit. Dis net nie dieselfde nie. Ja, dis myne. Let wel, nie 'n dokter of 'n apteker, nét Myne.

LAPSAR moet noodgedwonge sluit - help asb.

’n Hupstootjie

Sit-sit so...

Michelle Boshoff Me. Gerda Chester het haar hart en siel in Longtom Animal Protection and Rescue Services gesit. Sy mag weens gesondheidsredes nie meer LAPSAR bedryf nie. Haar hart bloei vir die diere wat sy deur die jare opgepas en die geleentheid tot ’n beter lewe gegee het. Sy is bereid om die besigheid weg te gee aan iemand wat ook die diere sal oppas en versorg. Dit behels om Lydenburg se weggooidiere in te neem, hul mediesebehandeling te reël by die veeartse en hulle baie liefde en aandag te gee. Die persoon moet ook sy eie bakkie hê. Hierdie hokke kan ook as kennels gebruik word vir mense wat op vakansie gaan. Gerda en haar man Andre het

letterlik hul nerwe afgewerk op van LAPSAR ’n sukses gemaak. Hulle het onselfsugtig alles in hul vermoë gedoen om die diere te versorg en nooit ’n wins gemaak hieruit nie. Mense wat kans sien vir so ’n liefdadigheidsbesigheid kan Gerda skakel by 082 041 6165. LAPSAR is nie deel van die DBV nie is ’n privaatinstansie.

Free hearing tests Hearing Being able to hear sounds is very important to human beings. It enables us to communicate with each other and makes us feel as part of a group. Being able to hear well allows us to receive information, both from other people and from our surroundings. Sounds can be pleasurable - the sound of nature or music, or noisy sounds that are too loud or too uncomfortable.

The challenge of handling a hearing loss Getting used to life with a hearing loss is challenging to most hearing aid users, both mentally and physically. It can be difficult to accept the fact that you are more or less dependent upon one or two hearing aids and that your hearing loss is permanent. Hearing aid users also often feel that just telling other people about their needs and what others can do to help can be challenging. However, there are many ways of facing the challenges of having a hearing loss positively. Contact Advantage Hearing Aids for their Spring Special. Get a free hearing test on Thursday 6 October.

MSA Africa sponsors international award in recognition of excellence in mining safety

M

SA, leading manufacturer of sophisticated safety equipment and locally represented by MSA Africa, is proud to be the official sponsor of the prestigious John T. Ryan Safety Award, recognising outstanding safety practices in the mining industry.This year saw the award presented in South Africa for the first time. “This award pays tribute to mines that are dedicated to turning a passion for safety into success,” says Hayley Arnesen, Customer Focus Programs and Loyalty Director, MSA Africa. The John T. Ryan award was presented at the prestigious annual MineSAFE Awards, held on 19 August. A joint venture between the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM), the Association of Mine Managers South Africa (AMMSA) and the South African Colliery Managers Association (SACMA), and with valued input from the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR), the Chamber of Mines, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the United Association of South Africa Unions, the event provided an opportunity for several mines to share and learn new ways of improving safety within the industry.

“This annual conference is designed to help bring South African mines to the goal of 'Zero Harm',” says Arnesen. A newly established South African John T. Ryan committee, consisting of representatives from AMMSA, SACMA, SAIMM, and the Chamber of Mines, was tasked with determining which South African mine had the lowest total injury frequency rate (TIFR) during 2010. The award was presented to Modikwa Platinum Mine, a joint venture between African Rainbow Minerals and Anglo Platinum. Although there was only one overall winner in 2011, in future a winner will be selected for each of the four different categories: Platinum, Gold, Coal and Diamond & Base Metals. Each of the category winners will receive a plague with the overall winner collecting the bronze floating trophy. The trophy, depicting a miner coming home to his family at the end of his shift, symbolises the importance of every life. This idea is best put in the words of French Inspector General of Mines, Fredric Le Play (1806-1882): “The most important thing to come out of a mine is the miner.” The trophy was named after John Thomas Ryan, a mine rescue worker in the USA coal mines in the early 1900s. Ryan and George Deike, a fellow rescue worker, identified

the lethal combination of methane gasses and open flame cap lamps as one of the main reasons for the high fatality rates in the mines at that time. Working with Thomas Edison, the partners developed and launched the first incandescent cap lamp that has become the forerunner of the electric cap lamp that is still used today. The launch of this product saw the birth of MSA in 1914. MSA subsequently became involved in the development of self-breathing apparatus used by soldiers in World War 1. Following the War, John Ryan spread his safety message to other industries, such as steel and chemicals; and MSA grew and expanded into Canada. In order to promote safe mining production, MSA Canada offered to donate a prestigious trophy to recognise notable achievements in safety practices. This trophy was accepted by the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and they launched the John T. Ryan National Safety Trophies in 1941. The success of this programme has seen it being exported to various countries including Chile, Peru, and now South Africa.

Safety Performance of Babohlale Mining at Dilokong Chrome Mine

B

abohlale has worked two months in a row without a Disabling Injury. During the last eight months they have worked four months without a single DI. This is an exceptional achievement, taking their difficult ground conditions into consideration. The Manager, Mr Johann Kotzè, the Mine Overseers, Mr Rudi van den Berg and Mr Leonard Hlatswayo, together with their whole team maintain their zero tolerance towards sub standard safety standards. Frequent safety meetings are being held to discuss safety issues, and to increase safety performance. The ASA Metals / Dilokong Chrome Mine Management Team would like to congratulate Babohlale for their dedication towards the safety of their employees.

Samancor Eastern Chrome Mines(ECM) is proud to support local schools REALISING the importance of foundation training, ECM has this year supported the Khenzani Program at Makgekantshe Primary, Mangabane Primary, Mapuru II and Kgoboko Primary. The Program is aimed at foundation training for Grade R and Grade 1 students. It covers motor skills, numeracy and literacy skills. Lenkse Buglass, one of the Khenzani Trainers says that the most important outcome of the program is that it improves children's ability to converse, which in turn develops their confidence. Principal Rebecca Sekgobela says the program has been a huge success and a great blessing to every child involved. The children's appetite for leaning has been ignited. Khenzani uses fun techniques to teach the children. Consequently they are having so much fun without realising they are learning in the process. During 2008, Rebecca also approached ECM with a request for an Administration Block. At that stage the school only had classrooms, and no administration facilities. Samancor approved the request, and the construction of the administration block started at the end of last year. The building is now in its final stages of construction.

Driving Skills for Life MCGEE & Co Lydenburg, in conjunction with the Ford Motor Company held a “Driving Skills for Life” course on 21 September, for a group of local ladies. The idea behind the course is “smart driving, protecting lives, saving fuel”. Driving Skills for Life was established in the United States in 2003 by the not-for-profit Ford Motor Company Fund, the US Governors Highway Safety Association and a panel of safety experts to teach newly licensed drivers the necessary skills for safe driving beyond what is learned in standard education programs. More people die on the worlds roads every year than by any other cause. between 2000 and 2015, the World Health Organisation predicts that road accidents will cause approximately 20 million deaths and leave more than 1 billion people injured, bereaved, or left to care for a road accident victim - most of these in the developing world. Yet despite these alarming statistics, awareness of the recurring tragedy of death and injury by traffic accident remains

inappropriately low. Here are 10 tips from the course:• Use safety belts all the time, • adjust rear and side view mirrors for clear sight • drive relaxed; anticipate situations • avoid distractions like talking on the phone • maintain a safe following distance between vehicles using the 3 second rule • change gears = drive at low engine speeds (rpm , the ideal range is 1,500 - 2,500 rpm to reduce fuel consumption • use the vehicles momentum and built-up energy and roll with the traffic when approaching red traffic lights, before changing direction ... • switch of the engine if you expect to stop and idle for more than 20 seconds, it is economical to switch off a warm engine • check tyre pressure regularly and adjust it appropriately, this saves fuel and increases safety • remove weight and unused racks, additional weight of only 20 kg increases fuel consumption by approximately 1%. Thanks to McGee & Co for the event, it was very informative and a lot of fun was had by all.

Samancor Eastern Chrome Mines Laboratory

Book your Year End Function Now!

Samancor Eastern Chrome Mines built and commissioned their own laboratory in 2009. The laboratory plays a key role in ensuring that product quality is on specification. In May this year, the lab received an assessment by the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS). SANAS is an independent body capable of assessing organisations for compliance to the relevant international/national standards and verifying their appropriate competence for tasks per their scope of activities. SANAS accreditation benefits accredited organisations through an impartial assessment by experts on their performance. After a process of six months, the ECM lab received their accreditation on 27 July 2011.This independent assessment and recognition of an organisations' competence allows the accredited organisations tests, inspection reports and certificates to be recognised as equivalent to organisations in other countries accredited by their National Accreditation Bodies with which SANAS has concluded a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA). Laboratory accreditation is highly regarded both nationally and internationally as a reliable indicator of technical competence. Many customers prefer suppliers which can provide analysis from an accredited laboratory. SHEQ Manager Frank Cotton said :"ECM is very proud to have a laboratory of such high quality. Every member of the team is an asset!".

New Lexus IS 350 will come to SA LAUNCHED in 2006, Lexus' answer to the BMW 3-Series has always been stymied by its lack of model choices. It really isn't a bad car in its own right, but until now it's only ever offered the choice of a middle-of-the-road IS 250 and the M3 rivalling, IS-F V10. Perhaps the most logical addition to the range would have been the turbodiesel model available in Europe, but Lexus insists that our diesel quality never made this possible. However, Lexus is about the expand the range with another highperformance petrol model, the IS 350, which will effectively bridge the gap between the two existing models and give Lexus a rival to the more powerful Germans. The IS 350 will make its South African debut at the Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) next week and though we'll have to wait until then to reveal its pricing and final specs, we can tell you that it is a more powerful alternative to the likes of BMW's 335i and Merc's C350. The new Lexus is powered by a 3456cc direct injection V6 engine, which pelts out 233kW at 6400rpm and 378Nm at 4800rpm and can, according to claims, screech from 0-100km/h in just 5.6

seconds. Power is channelled through the rear wheels via a sixspeed automatic transmission, with a manual mode linked to steering wheel paddles. Lexus SA says we can expect its usual generous array of comfort features, which would cost more on German rivals, to be standard on the IS 350. These include navigation with voice command, reverse camera and the Lexus Premium Sound System among other novelties. Passive safety kit comprises eight airbags, including knee bags for the driver and front passenger. www.iol.co.za/Motoring IOL mot sep26 lexusis re

Kia SA to rival Germans with Optima THE last time Kia dared to brave the D-segment market, well let's not go there. Yet judging by the quantity of those tearfully dull Magentis sedans we've seen on the roads, we'd be surprised if they sold four or five. Why not once bitten, twice shy then? You see, the all-new Optima appears to be a very different beast, one with bolder looks and modern technology. Given the overall credibility of Kia's recent offerings, in fact, we wouldn't be surprised if this new offering gives rivals like the Accord, Mazda6 and Sonata quite a scare. Interestingly though, it seems Kia has even bigger ambitions than the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Mazda6 as KIA SA marketing manager David Sieff puts it: The Optima will challenge German brands currently dominating this segment, and provide consumers with an alternative, when shopping for a luxurious mid size sedan” The new Optima will make its local debut at the Johannesburg Motor Show next week, although final specifications are only set to be announced when the car is actually launched here early next year. The car was penned at Kia's European design studio in Europe, to “draw the attention of the eye in the same fashion as a perfectly-tailored Italian suit,” in the words of chief designer Peter Schreyer. It's certainly bold by Kia standards, even if there is a bit of Saab influence apparent in those rear doors. On the mechanical front, the Optima should ensure a decent ride via multi-link rear suspension and its modern range of engines aim to offer a good balance between performance and economy. Though the local engine range has yet to be announced, overseas versions offer

the choice between a 147kW 2.4-litre direct injection, naturally aspirated unit and a 204kW 2-litre turbo - both engines being petrol units and delivering power to the front wheels. Expect the local version to be well kitted and judging by overseas offerings, it could offer novelties like a panoramic roof, infotainment system with rear-view camera and heated and cooled leather seats.

New tyre inflator full of hot air There are few things more frustrating than untying that bulky aerosol tyre inflater that's been cluttering up your favourite beetlecrusher for years - only to find that it's lost its puff and you're still stuck in the middle of nowhere with a puncture. Now the makers of Slime, a non-aerosol tyre sealant, have come up with a more expensive, but possibly more effective solution - and it's not only for off-roaders, but for anybody who rides beyond the street lights. The Slime Power Sport tyre inflater is a versatile, (very) compact 12volt compressor, that comes complete with a variety of interchangeable clips and connectors so it can be powered by almost any 12V source. (Tip from bitter experience: if your bike or quad has a small battery,

keep the engine running while you're using it!) The whole kit 'n caboodle (except for the 500ml bottle of tyre sealant) fits into a rugged carrying case that measures 15 x 15 x 6cm and the distributors say it'll puff up to 20 bar - more than enough to re-inflate a car, bakkie, quad or motorcycle tyre. But most important: it's not a oneshot solution like an aerosol. It can be used again if the tyre goes flat before you get home.

Mini reveals its new Coupe IT all started with the reborn Cooper back in 2001. Now it's 2011 and Mini's fifth model derivative is supposed to compete with the likes of Peugeot's RCZ and VW's Scirocco. The proliferation of BMW’s British brand sees Mini add a fifth line to its product offering, promising to be the most dynamically engaging Mini road car yet. Mini’s Coupe is due to go on sale in South Africa during the fourth quarter of 2011 alongside its Cooper, Convertible, Clubman and Countryman siblings. Although it has been a long development period – the concept was shown at the 2009 Frankfurt auto show – Mini’s stylists have managed to craft a neat two-door coupe likeness from the brand’s hatchback heritage, although the wrap-around glasshouse will appear odd to some. Anders Warming, Mini’s design and styling chief, has raked the Coupe’s windscreen by an additional 13-degrees compared to its Cooper range sibling. The coupe is between 30 and 35mm lower and 15 to 20mm more substantial bumper-to-bumper than the Cooper hatchback, with Cooper S and John Cooper Works coupe models being 5mm longer and lower than the standard coupe. Crucially, all Mini Coupe models will ride 29mm lower than their hatchback siblings, clearly signaling BMW’s dynamic intent with its latest development of the British compact-car brand icon. Despite the reduced ride height, Coupe is 25kg heavier than a comparable Cooper due to additional structural stringing to improve torsional rigidity. An interesting styling add-on (befitting its headline dynamic billing within the Mini range) is an active rear spoiler which deploys from the boot lid at more than 80km/h, harnessing downforce to stabilise the rear kinematics. Mini will offer the coupe in three trim levels (Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works) with a choice of four engines - three petrol engines (two turbocharged) and a single turbodiesel. Entry-level power will be courtesy of a 1.6-litre petrol unit producing 90kW/160Nm thanks to BMW’s valvetronic technology. Mini’s baseline coupe will be good for 0-100km/h in nine seconds and is claimed to consume only 5.4 litres/100km. The Mini’s Cooper S Coupe adds turbocharging to the 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, boosting outputs to 135kW/260Nm. Performance is (unsurprisingly) keen, with 0-100km/h in only 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 230km/h. Amazingly, despite its rampant performance, the coupe Cooper S is claimed to only consume 0.4 litres/100km more than the normal 1.6...John Cooper Works (JCW) badging denotes, as one would expect, the coupe range’s performance benchmark. With power boosted to 155kW (and 280Nm) thanks to refinement of the 1.6-litre engine’s twin-scroll turbo and gas-exchange routing, Mini’s JCW coupe is sure to scare TT (Scirocco) owners with its ability to complete the benchmark 0-100km/h sprint in only 6.4 seconds before powering on to 240km/h. Coupe JCW’s brakes are harmonised with the performance at hand, with generously large 316mm rotors rolling behind the front 17-inch alloys and 280mm discs at the rear. Industry analysts will question the wisdom of BMW's attempt to squeeze too much brand equity from the Mini brand with derivatives such as the coupe, yet with the Bavarian auto giant seeking more sales activity in lower segments of the premium market (where VW has the Scirocco), the 'Werke's logic is understandable. The question remains though: will South African's warm to the idea of a Mini sans its rear seats? Wheels24.co.za

Klopkloppie Kleuterskool se Oupa-en-Oumadag was weereens ’n groot sukses met die kleuters wat hul familie vermaak het. Hulle was tog te oulik met hul musiekvernuf. Van die personeel het aangetrek vir Erfenisdag en was baie kleurvol. ~ Michelle Boshoff

Some of the sponsors and organisers Mrs Ann Wilson, The Cowshed, Toos Dijkzeul and Philippa Huchzermeyer.

The Dinaledi String Project has become close and dear to the hearts of people in Lydenburg. Several ladies supported this project last Wednesday. “We are not yet an orchestra but a project, and one of these days we will be able to have a concert without anyone cringing at the sound. The children are extremely gifted and practice hard,” said the organiser Toos Dijkzeul. Thank you to Mrs Philippa Huchzermeyer who hosted the event at her house, The Bistro, Isabel Dickson, Kenchington’s, The Cow Shed and other people that made this garden party an event to remember. ~ Michelle Boshoff
