Familie eis antwoorde Vrae oor wat hul ‘sonskynkind’ se dood veroorsaak het Ilse Watson “SY was die sonskynkind van die familie. Sy het op familiebyeenkomste altyd grappies gemaak. Sy was die vriendelike, opgewekte een en baie lief vir dans.” Só vertel Hope van Heerden, ’n familielid, oor Lee-Anne Badenhorst (19) wat op Maandag 24 Februarie in die Kurumanhospitaal oorlede is nadat sy die Sondagaand geboorte aan ’n babadogtertjie geskenk het. Lee-Anne is Sondagaand in die Kuruman-hospitaal opgeneem om geopereer te word. Die babadogtertjie is ’n uur nadat sy gebore is, oorlede. Volgens die dokters van die hospitaal was daar gebreke by en komplikasies met haar hart. Maureen Badenhorst, ma van Lee-Anne, het Maandag omstreeks 09:00 by die hospitaal opgedaag om haar dogter te besoek. Met haar aankoms by die hospitaal is sy ingelig die dokters is met haar dogter in die trauma-eenheid. Lee-Anne se hart het glo twee keer gaan staan en die dokters kon haar nie red nie. Die dokters het Maureen ná 09:00 ingelig haar dogter is oorlede. Geen dokter wou kommentaar aan die familie verskaf en vir hulle vertel wat gebeur het nie. Die dokter (naam onbekend) wat Lee-Anne behandel het, het die familie ook ingelig hy gaan eers sy saalrondes doen en dat hy later met die familie sal praat. Hulle het tot 15:00 gewag voordat hulle hom weer gesien het. “Ons het wel ’n dokument van die forensiese afdeling van die polisie in Kimberley in verband met die aangeleentheid ontvang. Die dokument verduidelik egter niks oor Lee-Anne se dood nie. Die diens in die hospitaal was ongelooflik onprofessioneel en ons moes maar net daar by die ingang sit en wag totdat iemand ons kom spreek het,” vervolg Van Heerden. Die familie het eindelik hulp van ’n personeellid ontvang en hy het hulle na Lee-Ann se lyk geneem. “Daar lê sy toe op ’n hospitaaltrollie,

Rommel het oral rondgelê en dit was baie vuil in die vertrek.” Die familielede is getraumatiseer en geskok. Net die vorige week het hulle ’n ander familielid, wat in Beeshoek oorlede is, begrawe. “Ons wil met niemand baklei

nie. Ons soek net antwoorde – ons wil weet waaraan sy gesterf het.” Lee-Anne se begrafnis is op Saterdag 1 Maart gehou. Die forensiese afdeling van die polisie in Kimberley ondersoek die saak. ) Die hospitaalbestuurder kon nie vir kommentaar bereik word nie.

The Ku­ ruman Police, toge­ ther with their foren­ sics department, are investigating a burgla­ ry at Standard Bank in the early hours of 25 February.

Life still hard for majority Ilse Watson ANDREW LOUW, the DA premier candidate in the Northern Cape, debated on corruption and creating jobs at the State of the Province address in the Northern Cape Legislature on 25 February. “The Northern Cape is truly a better place to live in – for some. For the majority of residents life in this province is still hard and it is characterised mostly by poverty, unemployment, crime and corruption and fewer opportunities,” said Louw. He continued to say that the expanded unemployment rate in the province is 34,8%. That is slightly higher than the national rate of 34%. The number of discouraged work-seekers has jumped up from 28 000 in 2012 to 44 000 at the end of 2013. “The average income for those who work in the province is R86 175. The ANC administration’s

term has seen some of the worst management of the education system and has made life for pupils and teachers difficult. The message I am getting from people is that they need better job opportunities,” he continued. The recent crime statistics showed that Northern Cape residents are increasingly falling victim to serious contact and drug-related crimes. From the 2011-’12 to the 2012-’13 year reviewed, the crime stats show that: ) murder increased from 368 to 412 cases (12% increase); ) robbery with aggravating circumstances increased by 27,9%; ) common robbery increased by 12,8%; ) residential robbery increased by 16,9%; ) drug-related crimes increased by 7,1%; ) sexual offences increased by 6,1%; and

) hijacking increased by 211%. Premier Sylvia Lucas was oddly silent on the above matters. The audit reports of 2011-’12 saw 21 of 32 local municipalities, a massive 65%, falling into disclaimer or qualified audit opinions. The housing backlog in the province has grown from 48 000 in 2011 to over 53 000 in 2013. “We must fight against crime. We need more trained police officers. We need to drastically increase job creation – we must support and train entrepreneurs for small businesses,” said Louw. ) Kalahari Bulletin Kuruman recently reported that Sylvia Lucas, the premier of the Northern Cape, had no plans to investigate corruption and take action on the matter of unemployment. ) A total of 13 Northern Cape municipalities are under investigation for alleged corruption and workers who are not qualified to perform their duties.

Sewage raises concerns Ilse Watson FOX CORPORATE SERVICES (FCS), independent environmental consultants in the Northern Cape, received numerous telephonic reports/ complaints on Monday, 17 October, pertaining to the alleged illegal disposal of raw sewage by the Ga-Segonyana Municipality. The reports briefly describe how: ) A sewage manhole located near Jura’s Café in Ds. van Jaarsveld Street, Ward 1, Kuruman, was emptied by a Ga-Segonyana suction truck. ) The sewage was diverted from the manhole to a nearby storm-water drain, allowing the high-risk/hazardous waste to flow uncontrolled towards the outflow at the Kuruman River. According to the Constitution of South Africa, every person has the right to an environment that is not harmful to their health and well-being. It also says that government must act reasonably in order to protect the environment by preventing pollution, promoting conservation and sustainable development, while building the economy and society. This report was submitted to relevant authorities in terms of the prescribed compliance regulations in an effort to address the environmental impacts associated with such

negligent acts. Disciplinary actions will be taken by the relevant senior officials within the local and provincial authorities, in terms of applicable process and procedure. A repeat of such harmful activities must be avoided. Since this incident, there has been no response from Pabelelo Samson, head of community services at the Ga-Segonyana Municipality. Dineo Kgosi at the Department of Environment and Nature Conservation called Angie Fotheringham (an independent environmental consultant from Kuruman) and expressed that he was very concerned and alarmed about the incident. He stated that he was unable to act at that stage, pending the compilation of a formal report once the municipality had offered an explanation. According to the protection of Administrative Justice Act (POJA 2002) it is prescribed that official acknowledgement must take place within seven days of receiving the report. It also states that responses are due from the 14th day. ) Kalahari Bulletin Kuruman contacted the Ga-Segonyana Municipality to investigate this matter, but no one could be reached for a press release and/or explanation.

Help a learner by donating shoes THE Northern Cape NGO Coalition is trying to make a difference in 19 schools in the Joe Morlong Municipality through a child sponsorship programme.

They have donated five full school uniforms to five different schools and noticed the need for school shoes. The company therefore calls on businesses and individuals to

donate only one pair of school shoes for either girls or boys sizes one to six. Please drop the shoes at the Savoy Building, 27 Beare Street, Kuruman.

Mine tackles traffic AS part of the Anglo American family, Kumba Iron Ore’s Sishen Mine holds very high standards for the safety and security of its employees and the surrounding communities. Since Sishen is in a ramp-up phase and grows rapidly, infrastructure in and around the mine is also expanding accordingly. A new Sishen Mine entrance parking upgrade project was recently registered to address the challenge of providing suitable, covered and demarcated parking bays for employees and contractors. “A vast number of mine employees, contractors and visitors are parking in open areas that are not demarcated or secure, especially in rainy conditions,” says Lesedi Mashishi, the project manager of Ramp Up. The alleviation of congestion currently experienced at the main entrance during peak hours and the provision of an adequate storm water drainage system to ensure the maximum use of parking bays during rainy seasons are two important components the project aims to address,” he says. In addition to providing suitable and demarcated covered parking bays for employees, contractors and visitors, the project scope includes measure to address the congestion at the main entrance to the mine as it cannot sustain the traffic volumes during peak travel hours, says Lesedi.

THE areas where construction work will take place. “The increased traffic congestion during these hours will increase the likelihood of collisions between vehicles and pedestrians in the vicinity. Construction on this 60 000 m² site will address these concerns and will improve traffic flow and safety.” The project scope includes the following: ) the construction of a new bus terminals to accommodate ten buses; ) the construction of 360 additional parking bays with shelters; ) the construction of a mountable traffic circle with slip ways; ) the provision of access points to all parking areas; ) the construction of waiting areas to accommodate 13 incoming trucks; ) the provision of area illumination and under-roof lighting; ) culverts for storm water diversion; ) sheltered pedestrian pick up areas;

and ) the relocation of six turnstiles. The project is scheduled to commence on the week of 24 February and there will be a stop-and-go control at the entrance and exit of the construction areas as well as traffic diversion for pedestrians and light and heavy vehicles monitored by flagmen. Signboards will be erected to warn oncoming traffic about the stop-and-go control. Access will be provided to the existing facilities outside of the mine’s entrance in both the eastern and western parking lots, Areas E and A respectively. All road users and pedestrians are therefore urged to be patient during this time, to exercise caution when using these areas, and, to adhere to the safety rules and regulations of the mine and the country to ensure their own safety and the safety of others.

Geregtigheid moet geskied

DIE afgelope week het die opspraakwekkendste strafregstryd nog in Suid-Afrika begin. Oscar Pistorius, die Paralimpiese held, sal die hof daarvan moet oortuig dat hy Reeva Steenkamp nie met opset doodgeskiet het nie, maar dat hy haar vir ’n inbreker aangesien het en geskiet het om homself te beskerm. Die aanklaer is egter vasbeslote om aan die hof te verduidelik dat Pistorius aan koelbloedige moord skuldig is. Sou Pistorius gevra word om te getuig sal dit ongetwyfeld die hoogtepunt van die verhoor wees. Daar is ook genoem dat Pistorius nie gevra sal word om te getuig nie. Wat het in sy gedagtes aangegaan? Wat het verkeerd geloop? Enigiemand wat in die nag wakker word en sy verloofde, eggenoot of geliefde nie langs hom sien nie, sal eerder gaan ondersoek instel. Dalk is die mens kombuis toe vir iets om te drink – dit is ook moontlik dat jou geliefde in die badkamer kan wees. Enigiemand wat ’n geluid in die badkamer hoor, sal eers vra of sy

geliefde daar is. Die omstandighede is verdag, want as ’n mens in ’n veilige behuisingskompleks woon, is die kans skraler dat daar ’n inbreker in jou huis sal wees. Wat is reg en wat is verkeerd? Is dit die regte ding om ’n inbreker in jou huis te konfronteer? Wat is die regte ding om te doen sou die inbreker jou lewe bedreig? As ’n mens ’n alarmstelsel het, sal dit goed wees om die paniekknoppie te druk om sodoende hulp te ontbied. Om na ’n wapen te gryp en die persoon agter ’n toe deur te skiet is verdag en nie die korrekte optrede nie. Pistorius is ongetwyfeld ontsteld en hartseer oor die hele voorval – hy toon berou. Natuurlik is só ’n gebeurtenis vir enigeen traumaties. Of jy nou iemand per ongeluk doodgeskiet het en of dit nou ’n inbreker was wat jou lewe in gevaar gestel het, dit is en bly ’n traumatiese ervaring. Suid-Afrikaners hoop dat die hofsaak die waarheid sal uitwys en wil helderheid verkry oor wat presies gebeur het. Die reg sal geskied.

Pad na God altyd oop Ds. Schalk Theart DIT is goed wanneer ’n naam betekenis het. In sekere kulture sal die behoefte van ’n gesin bepaal wat die naam van die nuwe aankomeling gaan wees. Die doel wat hy moet vervul, sal regstreeks aan sy naam gekoppel word. In die Bybel vind ons naamgewing was ’n baie betekenisvolle geleentheid. Simson beteken sonskyn. Deel van Simson se roeping was om as instrument in God se hand te dien om die Fillistyne te straf. In Rigters 16 lees ’n mens Simson word deur sy vrou verlei om die geheim van sy krag bloot te lê. Die sonskynseun van Israel beland in volslae duisternis, omdat sy oë uitgesteek word. Simson het sy naam oneer aangedoen. Hy het daardeur sy roeping versaak. En Israel het die spot van die nasies geword. In die tronk waarin Simson met bronskettings geboei is, het sy hare weer begin groei. God wil hom verseker die pad na Hom toe bly altyd oop. Simson het gebid soos nog nooit vantevore nie: “Here, my God, dink tog aan my. Maak my tog net die een keer sterk, o God!” Dié een oomblik in Simson se lewe was bepalend vir hom en sy volk. Hy kon maklik as ’n swakkeling gesterf het wat sy volk in die steek gelaat het.

Maar hy kon ook sterf as rigter wat in sy dood hul redder kon wees. In een beslissende oomblik in Simson se lewe gaan soek hy by God hulp en skuiling. Sy belydenis van “My God” dra geweldig baie gewig, want dit veronderstel ’n persoonlike verhouding met God. Simson se versoek dat God aan hom moet dink, is ook al genoeg. Psalm 40 sê God dink altyd aan ons. Dit beteken vir ons beskerming en die lewe. Simson vra ook nie meer as die een keer nie. Dit ontsluit die poorte van die hemel vir hom. Tydens Jesus se bediening op aarde lees ’n mens Hy het soms net een keer iemand se lewenspad gekruis. Saggeus sit en wag vir Jesus in die wilde vyeboom, want Hy moet daar verbygaan. Die blindgebore Bartimeus het net een keer Jesus se pad gekruis. Toe die omstanders hom wou stilmaak, het hy net harder geroep. Hy is genees en gered. Jesus het ook net een keer vir alle sondaars kom sterwe sodat ons deel kan kry aan die een naam Christus. Ons word Christen genoem op grond van wat Christus kom doen het.

Kinders nie net speletjies Benneli Olivier Van der Walt

KINDERS. Die van ons wat hulle het, sal weet dit is nie noodwendig ’n maklike ervaring nie. Veral nie as die kinders so siek word dat hulle in die hospitaal opgeneem moet word nie. So gebeur dit dat my eerste en enigste op ’n Vrydag in die Mediclinic Kimberley vir breinvliesontsteking opgeneem moet word. Die skok van so ’n ernstige diagnose laat ’n mens so skrik dat al waaraan jy kan dink, is om so gou moontlik by die hospitaal uit te kom. So tussen die geskarrel om alles gepak te kry, en natuurlik die leë petroltenk vol te maak, vergeet ek die hele gesin se tandeborsels en sommer nog die sjampoe ook. En daar gaan ons.

ons in die donker by die hospitaal aan. Tussen die administratiewe pligte wat nagekom moet word, vat Pa ons seun na die ongevalle toe. Nie te lank daarna nie hoor ek hoe die mannetjie sy ontevredenheid met die dokter se prosedures hard verkondig. Nadat alles ingevul, gespuit, gepleister en ge-pajama is, sit ek en Pa in die saal en probeer vir Seun verduidelik “Pappa kan nie ook die nag by hom bly nie”. Pa is toe vort om ná 22:00 ’n gastehuis te probeer opspoor, wat hy gelukkig toe reggekry het danksy ’n baie hulpvaardige

Die sjampoe het darem in ’n klein botteltjie vir hom op sy gehuurde kussing gewag. Ek het natuurlik by Seun in die hospitaal agtergebly. Én geleer hospitaalbeddens is regtig net vir een mens gemaak – ’n baie maer mens. Dit was ’n delikate proses om so onderdeur die aarvoedingpypie ’n plekkie op die een kussing vir my kop te kry. Maar, deur al die drama, ongemak en afgeskeepte mondhigiene, bly ek dankbaar dat ons kind vier dae later gesond uit die hospitaal kon stap.

LEEFSTYL

Goeie voetsorg belangrik vir diabete Yolandi van Deventer INDIEN iemand aan diabetes ly, beteken dit dat sy of haar bloedglukosevlakke (bloedsuiker) abnormaal hoog is. Oor ’n tydperk kan die verhoogde bloedsuikervlakke skade aan die bloedvate en senuwees veroorsaak. Senuweeskade kan tot ’n verlies aan sensasie in die voete lei en dit kan weer tot beserings lei wat ’n mens nie kan voel nie. Voetbeserings, soos blase en snye, kan tot infeksie lei wat moontlik in erge gevalle tot die amputasie van die voet of been kan lei. Wanneer daar senuweeskade is, beteken dit dat daar verminderde suurstof- en bloed-

toevoer na die voete is. Dit het weer die gevolg dat wonde stadiger genees as by iemand wat normale bloedsuikerwaardes het. Voetsorg by diabete is van kardinale belang. Goeie voetsorg kan baie voordele inhou om sodoende later ernstige komplikasies soos amputasie te voorkom. Hoe om na jou voete om te sien as jy aan diabetes ly: ) Ondersoek jou voete daagliks en kyk vir stukkende plekke of blase; ) Was jou voete daagliks en droog dit goed af – veral tussen die tone;

) Spesiale rome is by apteke verkrygbaar wat iemand met diabetes se voete bevogtig en sodoende verhoed dat harde velletjies afskeur of inskeur; ) Eelte moet saggies geskuur word en moenie met iets soos ’n naelknipper gesny word nie. Bly weg van lemmetjies om self eelte te probeer “afsny”; ) Knip die toonnaels gereeld. Maak ’n punt daarvan om dit nie in ’n ronde vorm te knip nie, maar reguit. Dit verhoed dat dit te diep gesny word en dat stukkende plekke vorm; ) Dra altyd skoene om beserings te vermy. Dit

sal keer dat jy byvoorbeeld in ’n skerp voorwerp trap; ) Dra plat skoene met breë punte en lae, breë hakke. Dit moet te alle tye voorkom word dat jou tone teen mekaar druk. Dit kan tot drukseertjies lei; ) Kies skoene wat nie te styf sit nie, maar ook nie te los nie anders lei dit tot wrywing teen die hak of toon. As jy aan diabetes ly, moet jy ’n punt daarvan maak om goeie voetsorg deel van jou daaglikse roetine te maak. Indien jy bekommerd is oor wonde aan jou voete wat nie gesond word nie, moet jy jou dokter kontak. – Gesondheidswenke deur Mediclinic Kathu verskaf.

‘Nature’s ploughs’ a garden must Benneli Olivier Van der Walt THE pale red garden earthworm is often called “nature’s plough”. That’s because an earthworm pushes through soft earth with the point of its head. If the soil is hard, the worm eats its way through, forming interconnected burrows. These burrows loosen the soil, admitting air and water and helping roots grow. A single acre of cultivated land may be home to as many as 500 000 earthworms. Earthworms in your garden When you add nitrogen-rich compost to your soil, you help the worms thrive. However, adding synthetic nitrogen fertilizers may repel earthworms. Worms are sensitive to physical and chemical changes and will flee the salty conditions that result from an application of chemical fertilizer. As an earthworm feeds, organic matter passes through its body and is excreted as dark granular castings. You may see these casting piles in your garden. An earthworm produces its weight in castings daily. Worm cas-

THE pale red garden earthworm is often called “nature’s plough”. Photo: Supplied tings are a wonderful fertilizer, rich in nutrients otherwise unavailable to plants.

In cold weather, a soil search will turn up mature and young earthworms as well as eggs. By late spring, most worms are mature. As temperatures rise, activity slows; many lay eggs and then die. By midsummer, most worms are very young or protected by egg capsules. As the weather cools, young worms emerge. With wet weather, they grow active, making new burrows and eating extra food, resulting in more worm castings. Egg laying occurs again. Activity continues as long as the soil stays damp. After a heavy rain, earthworms often appear aboveground. Fresh water doesn’t disturb earthworms—they need ongoing skin moisture to breathe—but stagnant or contaminated water forces them from their burrows. Earthworms can survive in soil that freezes gradually, but sudden freezing can kill them. Protect earthworms against sudden freezes with mulch which also provides worms with food. Earthworm bins You can raise earthworms yourself using

earthworm bins through a process called vermiculture or earthworm composting. Kept in a cool, dark place, a worm bin provides a composting system for kitchen scraps and a source of rich, fertile worm castings for the garden. If you don’t want to pay a lot of money for a worm bin, you can make your own from a plastic storage bin, a modified garbage can, washtub, or wooden box. Punch small holes in the sides of plastic washtubs or garbage cans for aeration. To keep conditions moist but well drained, make a drainage area in the bottom of the bin; use a rigid divider to separate it from the worms’ living quarters. A loose cover keeps flies and light out and worms and moisture in. It is best to fill the bin with soaked coir (fibre from the outer husk of the coconut, used in potting compost) and newspaper. Garden soil may also be added. Make sure the mix is as damp as a wrungout sponge rather than wet. Then introduce the earthworms to their new home. – Source: www.organicgardening.com

Vriendskap spreek boekdele DIE Bloodhound Supersonic Car- (SSC) projek het leerlinge van Brittanje nader aan leerlinge in die Kalahari gebring. Die Bloodhound-motor word in Brittanje gebou, maar gaan die landspoedrekord in 2015 op Hakskeenpan probeer verbeter. Daarom het leerlinge van die Laerskool Avon – naby die Bloodhound- Tegniese Sentrum in die suidweste van Engeland waar dié motor gebou word – boeke aan laerskole in die Kalahari geskenk. Vir die meeste van die laerskole in die Kalahari is naslaanboeke skaars en die internet vreemd. Dave Rowley, direkteur van onderwys en van die Bloodhound-projek, sê nadat leerlinge die amptelike opening van die tegniese sentrum bygewoon het, het hulle navorsing oor skole in die Kalahari gedoen. Die navorsing oor Suid-Afrika, die Kalahari en veral Hakskeenpan het die hele skool betrek en tien bokse vol boeke is bymekaargemaak om aan skole in die Kalahari te skenk. All World Freight het die boeke gratis na Loubos, Groot Mier, Philandersbron, Riemvasmaak en Welkom verskeep. Marina du Plessis, waarnemende hoof van die Laerskool Loubos, sê die meeste ouers het nie internet nie en die naslaanwerke is dus broodnodig. Hy meen die

Rowley sê die kinders van Avon hoop die boeke is die begin van ’n vriendskap tussen die verskillende skole se leerlinge, maar dat die Avon-leerlinge groen van jaloesie is, omdat hulle nie ook in 2015 saam met hul nuwe maats op Hakskeenpan sal kan staan om die landspoedrekord-poging te aanskou nie.

Adri Herbert, organiseerder van die Vryfees, sê Piko sal as ’n navorsings- en ontwikkelingsprojek vir kuns in Suid-Afrika dien. “Australiese kunstenaars is wêreldleiers in eksperimentele kuns en Suid-Afrikaners blink in gemeenskapskuns uit. “Ons weet nie wat die uitkoms van die samewerking gaan wees nie, maar dit maak die projek opwindend.” Tony Grybowski, uitvoerende hoof van die Australiese raad, sê “eksperimentele kuns was nog altyd ’n belangrike deel van die ekologie met programme soos die Synapse Art/Science-projek wat al langer as ’n dekade bedryf word en besonderse vennootskappe en gemeenskapsuitkomste in ons land skep. “Dit is noodsaaklik vir kreatiwiteit in sowel die kunste as wetenskappe.” Suid-Afrikaanse kunstenaars wat by Piko betrokke is, sluit in Angela de Jesus, direkteur van die Stegmann-galery op die UV-kampus, Angelo Mockie, dramaturg en teater-regisseur, Galetshwane Malebo, dramaturg en teaterregisseur, Godfrey Manenye, choreograaf en bewegingsprakti-

Hanteer brandwonde só Benneli Olivier Van der Walt HET boererate vir brandwonde enige meriete? Of doen hulle meer skade as goed? Dr. Philippus Nel, ’n algemene praktisyn by Mediclinic, spreek twee mites aan: ) Stoom kan nie brandwonde veroorsaak nie Water kook teen 100°C, wat beteken dat stoom dieselfde temperatuur gaan wees. Die temperatuur van stoom wat onder druk super-verhit word, soos in ’n ketel, kan tot 500°C styg. Stoom kan dus erger brandwonde as kookwater veroorsaak, want dit is warmer. Indien jy met stoom gebrand word, geld dieselfde reëls as vir ’n gewone brandwond. Verwyder die bron wat die brandwond veroorsaak het, verkoel die gebrande gedeelte onmiddellik en raadpleeg dadelik ’n dokter of kliniek. Verseker dat die pasiënt weg is van die bron van die brandwond. Verwyder klere of juwele naby die wond en verkoel die brandwond deur dit in koel water af te spoel. Indien klere in die wond ingesmelt het, moet dit

Foto ter illustrasie liefs nie verwyder word nie. Moenie ys direk op die brandwond sit nie, dit kan die bloedsomloop na die wond belemmer en die besering vererger. ) Botter verlig brandwonde Hierdie boereraat kom al van 19de-eeuse slagvelde af waar dit geglo is dat brandwonde wat met botter, olie of vet bedek is die wond sal seël en infeksie sal voorkom. Dit is egter nie waar nie. Nel noem dat die beste

behandeling vir ’n brandwond steeds is om dit vir 20 minute of langer onder koel, lopende water te hou. Deur ’n olierige stof op die wond te smeer kan die assessering van die erns van die wond negatief beïnvloed word. Die enigste tyd wanneer dit aanvaarbaar is om ’n olierige stof op ’n brandwond te smeer is wanneer daar met teer gebrand is. Die olierige stof sal help om die teer van die vel af te kry en so beter behandeling te verskaf.

ACVV benodig kantoorruimte DIE Afrikaanse Christen-vrouevereniging (ACVV) in Upington is dringend op soek na kantoorruimte om te huur. In Desember het die kerksaal van die NG Moedergemeente afgebrand. Die ACVV se kantoor was in dié saal en die vereniging het alles verloor. Nou benodig hy van 1 April af dringend kantoorruimte vir ses personeellede en al hul voorraad. Die kantoor moet verkieslik toeganklik wees vir kliënte wat die kantoor besoek, verskeie goedere moet geberg kan word en om hulle toe te rus om diens te kan lewer aan die verskeie satellietgebiede wat uit die kantoor bedryf word. Die ACVV is die enigste nie-regeringsinstansie wat gemagtig is om statutêre dienste te lewer soos deur die Kinderwet vereis. Dus is sy dienste van groot belang in die ZF Mgcawu-distrik. Indien enigiemand met kantoorruimte vir die ACVV kan help, bel Rina Liebenberg by 054-331-3096 of by 072-993-0111.

MEMBERS of Sishen’s leadership team with the management of the Sishen Rugby Club, celebrating the opening of the revamped clubhouse.

Sports clubs benefit

FOUR of the Kalahari Country Club’s (KCC) sport clubhouses recently underwent an extreme makeover. The KCC is the sport and recreation leg of Kumba Iron Ore’s flagship operation in the Northern Cape, Sishen Mine. Through the KCC, Kumba made funds available to upgrade four facilities to a standard where conferences, workshops and courses can be presented, while after hours the sports clubs have beautiful clubhouses to host their members and visitors. The clubhouses that were first to get a makeover, were that of the shooting range, the equestrian

club, the rugby club and the tennis club. The tennis courts at Sesheng and Kathu were also re-surfaced and brand-new netball courts and a basketball court were built in Kathu. “This upgrade is all part of a three-year vision to upgrade all the facilities, fields and courts to a national standard,” says Greg Jennings, manager of the KCC. “For the next two years, the KCC envisages upgrading the rest of the clubhouses, including those for karate, gym, cycling, bowls and jukskei. There are also plans to build six additional soccer fields.” On Monday, 10 February,

stakeholders, including members of the Sishen Mine leadership team, were invited to view the new facilities and officially declare them open. At each clubhouse, the committee of the particular sports club hosted the visitors and the improvements could be admired. “Over the years Kumba has proven itself to be a company that cares and invests in the community’s sport. “With this project, sports club committee members once again acknowledged this support and are extremely grateful for what they have been given over the years,” Jennings concludes.

Opportunity knocks

A BRAND NEW car wash facility opened its doors on 3 February just outside Kumba Iron Ore’s Sishen Mine. Eden Lake Car Wash, owned by Myrah Mothibakgomo, tells the story of yet another small local business that can grow and flourish thanks to Kumba. After a strict evaluation process that included interviews and the presentation of business plans, the car wash opportunity was awarded to Eden Lake. “I was astonished when I heard I was the successful applicant,” says a happy Mothibakgomo. “I knew I could make a success of this venture, because I invested in short courses presented by Kumba since 2010 that helped polish my entrepreneurial skills.” The car wash industry is not exactly unfamiliar territory for Mothibakgomo. She used to work at a car wash facility at the Kathu taxi rank. “Eden Lake aims to offer quality and reliable services to Sishen Mine employees and contractors. We have had clients coming to fetch their cars after a wash that said their cars looked brand new.” Eden Lake employs three people and boasts two washing bays and three dry bays. It offers services such as a full wash, interior cleaning and wash-and-go. Prices vary between R70 and R100. “The car wash operates on a first come first serve basis, but as

Photo: Supplied business increases, appointments can be made,” Mothibakgomo says. “Time-wise a vehicle will take roughly one hour to wash to ensure that it is spotless.” As a local growing up in Kathu, Mothibakgomo always hoped to be employed at Sishen one day. “I never thought that the door would open up this way,” she marvels. “Having your own business is hectic, but more than anything else I want to make a success of this. My life has changed completely because of this wonderful opportunity Kumba gave me.

“The car wash facility was made available with the objective of exposing local SMME’s to a revenue generating opportunity while fine-tuning their entrepreneurial skills in an environment of demanding and informed clients,” explains Kealeboga Pilane, Sishen Mine’s enterprise development manager. “We are excited about Myra’s car wash and wish her the best of luck.” The car wash has a capacity to wash at least 20 cars per day and will operate on Mondays to Fridays from 07:00 until 16:00. Direct enquiries to Myra on 072-994-4756.

KALAHARI BULLETIN, DONDERDAG 6 MAART 2014

The types of anxiety disorders IN the series about mental health, panic and anxiety disorder is discussed this week. This is the final article in this series. Anyone who wants to share their experiences about mental health problems with Kalahari Bulletin can contact Ilse Watson at ilse.watson@volksblad.com or call 079-831-5579. All information is confidential. Ilse Watson “A PANIC attack just comes. It is unexpected. The first sign for me that a panic and anxiety attack is on its way is that my arms are suddenly very heavy – it feels like I can’t even move them and I suddenly feel extremely tired. I am short of breath, feeling hysterical and sometimes I experience heart palpitations.” This is how a woman* from Kuruman, who was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder, describes her anxiety attacks. “When I experience an anxiety and panic attack, I have to take a sedative immediately. “I also start crying because it is just too much to handle. I try to take deep breaths but how do you manage to breathe deeply when your breath is racing?” she continues. There are various types of anxiety disorders.

Anxiety can include four aspects of the experiences that an individual might have. Anxiety disorder is divided into anxiety disorder, phobic disorder and panic disorder – they all have their own characteristics. General anxiety disorder: It is a common, chronic disorder and a person suffering from it experiences long-lasting anxiety and it is mostly experienced by older adults. It can be a symptom of medical or substance abuse. This disorder will be diagnosed when a person has been extremely worried about daily problems for more than six months. Phobias: Phobic disorder is triggered by a specific situation or stimulus. People with phobic disorder are anticipating terrifying consequences. Panic disorder: Someone suffering from panic disorder suffers from brief attacks of intense apprehension and worry. They will tremble, shake, are confused, might be dizzy and might have difficulty breathing. These attacks are triggered by stress and fear. Other disorders associated with panic and anxiety disorders are agoraphobia, social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), separation anxiety, situational anxiety and childhood anxiety disorders. How is an anxiety disorder diagnosed? This disorder is often a chronic condition and it is defined as an unpleasant emotional state. By using clinical questionnaires this disorder ban be detected. ) Sources: http://www.onlinecounselingfast.com/cure-panic-attacks/; The South African Depression and Anxiety group (SADAG). *Name not disclosed to protect her identity.

TREATMENT options for panic and anxiety disorder: ) It includes lifestyle changes – the aim is to learn from acting differently and observing their reactions. ) Psychotherapy, especially cognitive behavioral therapy – this is highly effective for panic disorder and social phobias. Cognitive behavioral therapy can include techniques such as deep breathing and muscle relaxation exercises – it can also include anxiety managment training. ) Pharmaceutical therapy – certain medications are prescribed, such as

antidepressants. ) Self-help books will help the treatment if someone has anxiety disorder – it is important that the patient receives education about their disorder. ) Stopping smoking plays a large role in anxiety disorder and it is recommended that a patient stops smoking. ) During a panic attack a patient should learn to focus their conscious mind on something else and stop worrying. They must learn to understand the symptoms – they must take action and do breathing exercises as taught to them.

Leerlinge lewer skouspel op aand Ilse Watson OP Vrydagaand 28 Februarie is die spreekwoordelike rooi tapyt by die Hoërskool Kalahari uitgerol vir die skouspel wat deur verskeie leerlinge opgevoer is. Ongeveer 240 gaste het by keurig gedekte tafels aangesit. Die aand het begin met die gr. 12’s en die koor, asook drie tenore, wat die pragtige lied Riding on a rainbow van Chris de Burgh gesing het. Dié lied is in 1998 spesiaal vir Suid-Afrika se reënboognasie geskryf toe hy die land besoek het. Daar was talle hoogtepunte wat hoendervel-oomblikke verskaf het. Twee

Skool se skouspel iets besonders PETRO SPANGENBERG, Kuruman: AS lid van die twee vrouekultuurorganisasies (die VLV en Dameskring) wil ek die Hoërskool Kalahari hartlik geluk wens met verlede week se skouspelvertoning. Gebalanseerde, gelukkige kinders is vir ons baie belangrik en nie almal kan groot sportgeeste of akademiese reuse word nie. Op Vrydagaand was elkeen in die produksie egter ’n ster uit eie reg. Ek kon Marianne van Niekerk en haar helpers se hand deur die produksie sien. Dit was ook sigbaar in die goeie keuse van liedjies, die meisies se mooi rokke en die pragtige silwerkleurige en wit agter-

tenore het You raise me up gesing en ook saam met Meldene Mackriel die aand met die liedjie A time to say goodbye afgesluit. ’n Ander groot verrassing was Monique Lamprecht met haar twee nommers Story van Brandy Carlisle en Sonvanger. Dan was daar Quintus Thorpe en Adriaan Adriaanse met Steve Hofmeyr se Agter elke Man – leerbaadjies en motorfietse was deel van hul optrede. Bea Wiid het almal na ’n droomwêreld met haar balletuitvoering gevoer. Die gaste kon heerlik smul aan ’n driegangmaal wat met koeksisters en koffie afgesluit is. gronddekor. Die klankgehalte en die kos was net so goed. Vir ’n oomblik was alles ’n magiese silwerblou toe Bea Wiid met ballet opgetree het. Tant Stienie se stem het weerklink met die kolligte op twee motorfietse in Agter elke man en die manne met die leerbaadjies het my bekoor. Met Sonvanger het Monique Lamprecht in ’n songodin verander. Eben Olivier het ’n gedaantewisseling ondergaan toe hy op die verhoog gestap het. Dit was asof Lucas Maree en Johnny Cash hom op die skouer geklop het. Ek kan nog vele nommers uitlig, maar Time to say goodbye was die eindelike hoogtepunt en het mense spontaan laat opstaan. As Oud-Kala moes ek die trane bedwing toe ouers by mekaar vir die Kala Call inhaak en ek het besef: Die nuwe geslag word elke jaar beter. ) Sien foto’s van die skouspel by www.kalaharibulletin.co.za.

Skitter in kunste vir plek in NK­span

VIER leerlinge van die Hoërskool Kalahari het verlede naweek aan ’n uitdunronde van die Suid­ Afrikaanse Kampioenskap vir Uitvoerende Kunste in Kimberley deelgeneem. Hulle is in die Noord­ Kaapse span ingesluit wat aan die Suid­Afrikaanse Kampioenskappe in Rustenburg gaan deel­ neem. Indien dié leerlinge suksesvol is, sal hulle in die Julie­vakansie na Los Angeles vertrek om daar deel te neem. “Kultuur begin om sy regmatige plek in die skool in te neem,” sê Marianne van Niekerk, die organiseerder van kultuur by die skool.

Gastehuis luuks Ilse Watson ’n EENS lieflike woonhuis te Cowburnstraat 36 spog nou as The Hedge-gastehuis. Johan de Klerk, Johan Coetzee en die broers van Olivier-konstruksie, Riebeeck en William Olivier, het ten doel gehad om ’n luukse gastehuis in Kuruman te open. Weens die bedrywigheid van Kuruman en omliggende omgewing, het die behoefte aan nog ’n gastehuis ontstaan. Die woonhuis van Alta de Klerk was die beste geleë en het reeds die warm gevoel van ’n huis gehad. Die vier vennote het met groot sorg aan elke kamer beplan en die hulp van ’n binnenshuise ontwerper ingeroep. Geen koste is ontsien om die kamers so gerieflik en weelderig as moontlik te

maak nie. Die gastehuis beskik oor tien pragtig gemeubileerde kamers, waarvan een ’n gesinskamer en een ’n wittebroodskamer met ’n kaggel is – perfek vir koue wintersaande. Die gastehuis beskik ook oor ’n swembad en ’n braaiplek sou gaste lus wees vir ’n vleisie oor die kole. Natuurlik is dié gastehuis se ontbyt nie te versmaai nie. By The Hedge-gastehuis heers daar ’n rustige en ontspanne atmosfeer. Onder massiewe doringbome wat skadu’s met hul lang takke gooi, is dit die perfekte plek om ná ’n besige dag jou voete te vind. Skop jou skoene uit en ontspan in The Hedge-gastehuis. Vind hulle op Facebook of besoek hul webwerf by www.hedgeguesthouse.co.za.

Drankwinkel weer beroof Ilse Watson SATERDAG om ongeveer 00:00 is weer by die Kalahari-drankwinkel (net langs Spar) ingebreek. “Die inbrekers het ongeveer R90 000 se goedere (meestal sigarette) gesteel. Hulle was binne ’n minuut in en uit die perseel,” sê Piet Cordier, eienaar van dié winkel. Toe Cordier by sy winkel opdaag, was die sekuriteitsmaatskappy reeds daar en die hele voorval is op film vasgelê. Die Kuruman-polisie het ook opgedaag,

maar het nie verklarings geneem nie. “Daar was oral vingermerke – hulle kon ook vingerafdrukke geneem het. “Is inbrake nou nie meer belangrik genoeg vir die polisie om ordentlike aandag daaraan te skenk nie?” vra Cordier. Cordier het Maandagoggend ’n klag by die Kuruman-polisie ingedien. ) Kalahari Bulletin Kuruman het reeds op 6 Februarie verslag gedoen oor die kwaaddoeners wat by die Kalahari-drankwinkel ingebreek het en ’n OTM van FNB opgeblaas het.

Water in NC tested THE civil rights organisation AfriForum has taken samples of potable (Blue Drop) and treated sewage water (Green Drop) from across the Northern Cape. This is part of a national project which is known as the AfriForum Blue and Green Drop Branch Project. The following towns in the Northern Cape are included in the project: Kimberley, Daniëlskuil, Upington, Hartswater, Williston, Springbok, Olifantshoek, Kathu, Garies, Kamieskroon and Kuruman. “AfriForum will monitor the water in South Africa this year to ensure that the quality is up to standard and to assist with the sustainability and conservation of this crucial resource,” says Julius Kleynhans, head of environmental affairs at AfriForum. AfriForum will continue to monitor the water and sewage quality in the country. “If the water does not comply with national standards, we will put pressure on municipalities to solve the problem. “If that does not happen, we will take the necessary steps to force compliance,” says Stefan Pieterse, organiser for AfriForum in the Northern Cape. “The crisis facing South Africa as a result of inadequate water provision, the collapse of infrastructure, the demand for water and pollution has necessitated our intervention in order to protect our water sources. “We will not allow mismanagement any longer and alternatives for the provision and protection of water are considered,” Kleynhans adds. AfriForum launched its #thinkwater initiative to create awareness of water quality issues. The public is invited to act as watchdog and report issues to AfriForum at www.afriforum.co.za/dink-water/. You may also let them know if the water in your town is clean. SMS “Yes” or “No” to 32277. (R1/SMS) “The water samples will be tested by an independent Sanas accredited laboratory. “A complete report of the results will be made available to the public and the media on 17 March,” Kleynhans concludes.

Span ’n yster in krieket DIE Hoërskool Kalahari het die afgelope krieketseisoen verskeie hoogtepunte beleef. Jandré de Klerk het in een wedstryd ’n driekuns behaal, Stephan Bekker het sy eerste honderdtal in die senior liga geslaan en SJ van der Merwe het teen die Hoërskool Postmasburg ook ’n eerste honderdtal bereik.

Ook het Divan Reinecke 82 lopies (nie uit nie) in die wedstryd aangeteken. Sommige wedstryde is weens die baie reën gekanselleer. Dié span het wel vroeg in die seisoen een wedstryd teen die Hoërskool Kathu verloor. Dié krieketspan het deurgedring na die eindronde wat op Donderdag 13

Februarie plaasgevind het. Die eindwedstryd is teen die Hoërskool Kathu gespeel. SJ van der Merwe het mooi gekolf en het 76 lopies aangeteken. Die span het met 155 vir 5 in die 30 boulbeurte geëindig. Soos regte ysters het die jong span goeie veldwerk gedoen en Kathu is vir 138 lopies uitgeboul.
