Karkasse van polisiehonde gevind VERA SCHOEMAN

Jeffreysbaai kry eie hoërskool MONIQUE VERMEULEN JEFFREYSBAAI gaan een van die dae met sy eie hoërskool kan spog. Nie net sal dié nuwe skool die druk op hoërskole in Humansdorp verlig nie, maar dit sal ook ouers van Jeffreysbaai help om op vervoerkoste te spaar. Daar is sonder twyfel ’n groot behoefte aan ’n hoërskool in Jeffreysbaai. Nog voor die eerste hopie grond vir die fondasie omgedolwe is, is daar reeds so ’n groot aanvraag dat die Departement Onderwys graag met drie grade - in plaas van die gebruiklike een graad wat dan jaar na jaar uitbrei - begin. Die Departement beoog om volgende jaar met die bouwerk van dié nuwe hoërskool in Koraalstraat, C-Plek te begin. Die grond is deur die munisipaliteit, wat lank reeds vir die bou van ’n hoërskool in Jeffreysbaai baklei, geskenk. Volgens munisipale woordvoerder, Laura-Leigh Randall, is daar werklik ’n groot nood vir ’n hoërskool op Jeffreysbaai.

“Honderde leerlinge moet elke dag per bus na die drie hoërskole op Humansdorp - Nico Malan, Lungiso Sekondêr en Humansdorp Sekondêr - vervoer word. Alhoewel die vevoer van die leerlinge deur die Departement gesubsideer word, kos dit ouers nog steeds baie geld,” het Randall gesê. “Die feit dat die kinders so ver van die skool af bly, het ook ’n impak op die kwaliteit van die opvoeding wat hulle ontvang. Dit is, byvoorbeeld, nie altyd maklik vir hulle om aan naskoolse aktiwiteite, byvoorbeeld sport en kultuur, deel te neem nie omdat vervoer ’n groot probleem is.” Volgens Randall was die oorspronklike plan dat die skool ’n tegniese skool sou wees en dit is nog steeds waarna die Departement wil werk, maar die skool gaan eers as ’n akademiese skool begin en dan sal daar later tegniese klasse bygevoeg word. “Die Departement beoog om samesprekings met ouers te hê sodat die kurrikulum gefinaliseer kan word,” aldus Randall. Earl Hill, raadslid vir Wyk 2 (Pellsrus) en ’n onderwyser by Laerskool Pellsrus, is vuur en vlam oor die vooruitsig van ’n hoërskool in die area en is oortuig daarvan dat

dié nuwe skool ’n uitstekende en noodsaaklike diens aan die gemeenskap sal lewer. “Ons pleit al vir die afgelope ses jaar by die Departement vir ’n hoërskool en nou is ons gebede verhoor. Beplanning vir die skool is reeds in ’n gevorderde stadium en die Departement beoog om aan die einde van November vir tenders te adverteer,” het Hill gesê. “In lig van die geweldige toename van leerders by ons laerskole kon die oprigting van ’n hoërskool nie op ’n beter tyd gekom het nie. “Benewens die 1 365 leerders wat tans by Laerskool Pellsrus ingeskryf is, akkommodeer die skool ook ’n verdere 200 graad 8 en 9 leerders.” Volgens Hill gaan die kurrikulum voorsiening maak vir provinsiale toerisme, tegniese vakke en daar is ook ’n sterk moontlikheid dat vakke in lanbou aangebied gaan word. .Om kommentaar op die artiekl te lewer, besoek ons webtuiste www.kougaexpress.co.za.

’n Forensiese span van die polisie wat die dood verlede maand van twee opgeleide polisiehonde ondersoek het, het bevind hulle is nie aan natuurlike oorsake dood nie. Uschka, ’n Labrador-dwelmsnuffelaar, en Ikke, ’n ervare patrolliehond, is vermoedelik in hul hokke verdoof voordat hulle uitgehaal, doodgemaak en hul karkasse op ’n plaas weggesteek is. Ao. Petra Els, ’n woordvoerder van die Jeffreysbaai-polisie, het gesê hulle is warm op die spoor van die booswig en glo sy inhegtenisneming gaan vir groot opspraak sorg. Toe die twee honde op 11 September uit hul hokke by die Humansdorp honde-eenheid verdwyn het, is aanvanklik geglo hulle het self ’n tonnel onder die draad deur gegrawe en ontsnap. Ná ’n grootskaalse soektog wat die verbeelding van die gemeenskap aangegryp het, is die twee se ontbinde karkasse drie weke later in ’n stormwaterpyp gevind. Werkers van ’n plaas sowat 5 km buite Humansdorp op die Hankey-pad het op hulle afgekom. Volgens die bevelvoerder van die Humansdorp K9-eenheid, kapt. Frank Monaise, het hulle meer as 300 oproepe van bekommerde lede van die publiek ontvang. “Álmal wou help soek.” Volgens lt.kol. Priscilla Naidu het die toneel waar die honde gevind is, onmiddellik verdag gelyk. “Hulle het met hul koppe bymekaar gelê en hul onderlywe in verskillende rigtings. Hulle was ook baie diep in die tonnel.” ’n Span forensiese deskundiges het ingevlieg om die toneel te ondersoek en het op baie waardevolle leidrade afgekom. Volgens die twee honde se hanteerders is ’n Labrador nie so vinnig soos ’n Belgiese skaaphond nie en sou Uschka nooit by Ikke kon byhou nie.

Rioolstroom hul daaglikse lot MONIQUE VERMEULEN INWONERS moes die afgelope paar dae hul neuse styf toeknyp nadat riool by ’n rioolgat by Sandrift Meenthuis-kompleks uitgeborrel en straat af gestroom het - en dit is ook nie die eerste keer wat dit gebeur nie. Louis Rautenbach wat voorheen die pad daagliks gebruik het, maar nou wye draaie daarom ry, sê die riool loop al vir weke in Holy Singel. Rautenbach het sy kommer uitgespreek oor die onhigiëniesie omstandighede, gesondheidsrisiko wat dit inhou en die stinkende riool wat in die stormwaterpype beland en die dorp se water besoedel. Volengs Rautenbach sukkel die inwoners van Holy Singel al vir ’n geruime tyd met dié stink probleem wat op ’n gereelde basis kop uitsteek. En wanneer die straat wel rioolvry is, is dié skone vreugde van korte duur. “Dit is al so erg dat die pad begin groen word en die muggies ons behoorlik toepak.

“My 5-jarige dogtertjie het gereeld met haar fiets in dié straat voor ons huis gery, maar nou hou ek haar so ver as moontlik uit die straat uit.” Rautenbach is egter nie die enigste persoon wat oor die stank kla nie. Inwoners van Sandrift Meenthuis-kompleks sit ook behoorlik met hulle hande in die hare weens skone frustrasie. Volgens een van die inwoners, wat anoniem wil bly, moet die Kouga Munisipaliteit elke Donderdag die kompleks se septiesie tenk kom leeg pomp, maar dit gebeur egter nie so gereeld soos wat dit moet nie. Sy het ook gesê dat wanneer die munisipaliteit wel kom, hulle die tenk óf nie heeltemal leeg pomp nie, óf ’n groot gemors agter laat. Volgens munisipale woordvoerder, Mfundo Sobele, het munisipale trokke die septiese tenk verlede week skoongemaak en is dit ’n oefening wat gereed uitgevoer word. In die geval van rioolstortings, kan inwoners die munisipaliteit by 0 042 200 2235 kontak. .Om kommentaar le lewer, besoek ons web-tuiste www.kougaexpress.co.za.

Census ­ what you should know ON Monday, October 10 ,140 000 Census workers started counting every single person in South Africa. They will gather information about every person living at each address, including name, age, gender, race and other relevant data. Con artists will also be using this time as an opportunity to ‘steal’ identities and information for fraud purposes. Important things to remember during Census 2011: .A Census worker will have a badge, a handheld device, a Census Bureau canvas bag and a confidentiality notice. .Always ask to see their identification and badge before answering any questions. .You don’t need to invite the Census worker into your home and currently they are only knocking on doors to verify address info.

.Do not give your identity number, credit card, banking or financial situation information to anyone even if they claim to need it for the Census. .Census workers will not be asking for donations. .The company Acorn is not working with the Census Bureau and you should not share any information with anyone from Acorn. .Census workers may contact you by telephone, post or in person at home. They will not contact you by email – do not click on links or attachments supposedly from the Census Bureau. .The only information that you are obliged to disclose is the number of people who live at your address.

Township Tourism drive back by demand DUE to popular demand, Kouga’s new Tourism Portfolio will once again be visiting township communities this month to raise awareness of entrepreneurship opportunities in the tourism sector. This second township tourism drive will start next week on Monday, October 17, at the KwaNomzamo Community Hall. On Tuesday the team will visit the Kruisfontein Civic Centre, on Wednesday the Sea Vista Community Hall and on Thursday the Loerie Community Hall. The following week’s programme will kick off on Monday, October 24, at the Katrina Felix Hall in Thornhill. On Tuesday the outreach will be held at the Weston Hall, on Wednesday at the Vusumzi Landu Hall in Hankey and on

Thursday at the Dan Sandi Hall in Ramaphosa Village. The outreach will conclude on Monday, October 31, at the Pellsrus Community Hall at Jeffreys Bay. All meetings start at 6pm. Tourism portfolio councillor Virginia Camealio-Benjamin said the outreach was aimed at boosting job creation within township communities by involving them in tourism activities. “Our focus is on showing residents how they can create their own employment through tourism,” she said. The first township tourism drive was held in August and was well received by those who attended.

Wine pairing at Five Elements ESTI STEWART

New police station for St Francis Bay Acting Kouga Municipal Manager, Sidney Fadi (left), and Kouga Housing Manager, Elvis Olivier (right), met with Ayanda Sibindlana, Chief Town Planner at the Department of Public Works, last week to discuss plans for a new police station at St Francis Bay. Photo: SUPPLIED PLANS for a bigger, better police station at St Francis Bay are progressing well. Kouga Executive Mayor Booi Koerat said the municipality had met with the Department of Public Works last week to ensure that the project was on track. “The aim is to complete the preplanning by the end of February next year, so that construction can start in the 2012/13 financial year,” he said. He said the municipality and Department were finalising the Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the new police station. “The SLA is necessary to ensure that the municipality has the capacity to cater for the service requirements of the development, including, water, sewerage, electricity, roads, stormwater and refuse removal,” he explained. He said the Department had already submitted a site development plan for the new

station, which will be built on the corner of St Francis Drive and Tarragona Avenue, and that the final building plans should be submitted by February next year. “The other outstanding matter is the ownership of the land where the police station is to be built,” the mayor said. “The land was supposed to have been transferred to the St Francis Bay Transitional Local Council (TLC) when Santareme was developed, but the TLC did not do so. Consequently, the land is still registered in the name of the disbanded Santareme Homeowners’ Association and must now be transferred to Kouga so that we can transfer it to the Department.” According to the site development plan, the new police building will have a total floor area of 1 750m². This includes a service point (214 m²), office space (36 m²), crime investigation unit (82 m²), crime prevention unit (176 m²), cells (382 m²) and a wash bay.

A GURMET food and wine pairing will be held this Friday at the award winning Five Elements Restaurant when award winning winemaker Carl Schultz from the award winning Hartenberg Estate will be the special guest. Tickets, at a cost of R280 per person, include a five course gourmet dinner as well as all the wines that will be served with the dinner. Every course will be paired with a top Hartenberg wine so that both the food and the wine will be showed to its full extent. The gourmet evening starts with a pre-dinner drink at 6.30pm and the first course will be served at 7pm. Winemaker Carl Schultz will talk about the wines and answer questions. With a track record spanning nearly 40 years, Hartenberg Shiraz enjoys an unmatched reputation for high-end quality and above all, consistency. The ability to age gracefully is a common thread that runs through all 36 vintages produced to date at Hartenberg. Many of the older

wines are still drinking well after 20 and 30 years. For Carl, Hartenberg’s winemaker of the past 17 years, this is the most finite measure of quality. “We feel that only after four years does the variety start to give one a glimpse of the locked-away potential lurking in the bottle,” said Carl. The Hartenberg Wine Estate is one of South Africa’s leading and oldest producers of Shiraz in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands, have triumphed with the Best New World Wine and a Gold Medal for their Estate Shiraz at the 2010 Zurich International Wine Competition in Switzerland. The winning wine, Hartenberg Estate Shiraz 2006, scored 90,4 points at the Internationale Weinpremierung Zürich 2010, the highest tally of all the South African contenders in the competition. A record number of 2 382 wines participated in the competition, considered the most significant for international wines available in Switzerland.

Jamie finalis vir Little Miss SA Jamie Smith (11) van Jeffreysbaai is een van 26 finaliste vir Little Miss SA. As ’n finalis moet sy verskeie gemeen­ skapsprojekte aanpak, en sy het be­ sluit om toebroodjies vir die pasiënte by Kuilsrivier Kliniek te maak, asook om die Humansdorp DBV te onder­ steun. By haar is haar geliefde hond, Vlooi. Foto: MONIQUE VERMEULEN MONIQUE VERMEULEN SY het reeds meer titels ingeoes as wat sy kan onthou en nou klop dié elfjarige se hart in haar keel, want sy neem eersdaags aan die eind-ronde van die “Little Miss SA”-kompetisie deel. Altesaam 26 finaliste gaan op 22 Oktober in Pretoria dit onder mekaar uitspook om as “Little Miss SA” gekroon te word. Jamie Smith, ’n graad 5 leerling by Laerskool Jeffreysbaai, het aanvanklik net vir die pret ingeskryf, maar sy en haar ouers is behoorlik in die wolke oor haar prestasie. “Ek is só trots op my dogter. Sy het my al hoeveel keer in trane gehad van trotsheid,” het haar ma, Marlize, gesê. Volgens Marlize is Jamie se prestasie ook te danke aan Ellen Hancke van Jeffreysbaai, wat lewenstoerusting-kursusse aanbied. “Sy het Jamie onder haar vlerk geneem het en op veel meer as net drama voorberei,” het Marlize gesê. Die kursus sluit in etiket, liggaamshouding, godsdiens, geestelike versterking, tweetaligheid, afronding en nog vele meer. Maar om ’n finalis te wees, moet jy nie net mooi wees nie, jy moet ook baie hard kan werk. Elke finalis moet ’n minimum van R1 500 insamel, asook verskeie gemeenskapsprojekte aanpak. Jamie het besluit om beide aan die minderbevoorregtes sowel as die mishandelde diere in die gemeenskap terug te gee. Sy is al ’n geruime tyd besig om kos vir die DBV in Humansdorp in te samel en more gaan sy en nog leerders van Laerskool Jeffreysbaai die hokke

by die DBV gaan skoonmaak. Maandag is dit weer tyd vir broodjies maak, wanneer sy vir die pasiënt en kinders by die Kuilsrivier Kliniek elk ’n lekker broodjie gaan gee om te geniet. Jamie het dié jaar omtrent met haar talente gewoeker. Tydens die Suid-Afrikaanse Kampioenskappe in Rustenburg vroeër die jaar, het sy 3 goue, 9 silwer en 2 brons medaljes vir haar deelname in die drama-kategorieë verower. Volgens haar ma was die groot verrassing egter die verskeie medaljes wat sy vir haar modelwerk losgeslaan het, aangesien sy eers in Mei vanjaar met formele opleiding by Mould Model Academy begin het. Jamie het 1 goue, 2 silwer en 1 brons medalje vir die vier kategorieë waarvoor sy ingeskryf het, ontvang. “Jamie is gekies as lid van die Suid-Afrikaanse span wat in Julie vanjaar Los Angeles toe is om teen 53 ander lande aan die World Championships of Performing Arts deel te neem. Sy was ingeskryf vir 19 items en het vir elkeen ’n medalje ontvang, waarvan 10 goud was,,” het Marlize gesê. Nog medaljes op Jamie se kerfstok is die Industry Gold Medal - ter erkenning dat sy raakgesien is deur agente en afrigters in Amerika dat sy ’n kandidaat is vir ’n suksesvolle toekoms in die bedryf - en die Grand Championship Finalis Medalje. Sy is ook tydens die jaarlikse Mej. Nartjiefees kompetisie as die wenner in haar ouderdomsgroep gekroon. As sy nie besig is om die een titel na die ander in te ryg nie, is Jamie ook aktief betrokke by redenaars, tennis en netbal by die skool. Diegene wat Jamie wil ondersteun, kan Marlize by 0 082 499 5970 kontak.

Enter now for our Pet­Look­Alike competition MONIQUE VERMEULEN THERE is only two weeks left to enter the Kouga Express Pet-look-alike competition and stand the chance to grace the front page of the Kouga Express on November 3. In order to help the SPCA in Humansdorp care for man’s close friends, the Kouga Express is holding a Pet-Look-Alike Photo Competition to raise funds for the care of animals. The SPCA in Humansdorp will soon run out of money, leaving 60 dogs and 15 cats to be euthanased.

year. The SPCA uses 30kgs of dog food (pebbles) per day, so an average of approximately one month. This does not include the dog food they hand out in the township. In the Kouga Express Pet-LookAlike Photo Competition people can enter by submitting an original photo of themselves and their dog or cat. The Kouga Express will publish some of the entry photos for the duration of October. The closing date for entries is October 26 and the winner, whose photo will appear on the front page of the Kouga Express of November 3, will be contacted on October 28.

Have your will drafted free of charge ARE you making arrangements for your yearend holiday? Did you recently buy a house or flat? Did you get married this year or move in with your companion? Then you should ensure that your affairs are in order by having a will drafted by an attorney – for free. From October 17 - 21 attorneys participating

in the National Wills Week initiative will draft basic wills for members of the public free of charge. More than 1 000 attorneys’ firms throughout South Africa are participating in the National Wills Week project. The aim of National Wills Week is to highlight the importance of having a valid will in

place to ensure that the wishes of testators are taken into account when they die, and that their assets are disposed of according with their wishes. Also, this initiative is to encourage members of the public who would not normally make use of the services of an attorney, or who may hesitate to approach an attorney for various reasons, to consult an attorney. Why approach an attorney to draft your will? An attorney has the necessary knowledge and

expertise to ensure that your will is legally valid and complies with your wishes. An attorney can also advise you on any problem which may arise with regard to your will. Often a will is not valid because the person who drafts it does not have the necessary legal knowledge to ensure that the requirements of the law are met. What could happen to your estate if you die without a valid will? If you die without leaving a valid will, your assets will be distributed according to the provisions of the Intestate Succession Act. The provisions of this Act are generally fair and ensure that your possessions are transferred to your spouse and children. But, the following problems may arise if you die without leaving a will: .Your assets may not be left to the person of your choice. .It can take a long time to have an executor appointed. The executor who is appointed may be somebody you may not have chosen yourself. .There could be extra and unnecessary costs. .There could be unhappiness and conflict among members of your family because there are no clear instructions on how to distribute your assets. During Wills Week attorneys participating in the National Wills Week project will draft a new, basic will for members of the public for free. Attorneys will not amend or redraft existing wills. The contact details of attorneys participating in the National Wills Week project can be accessed on the LSSA website at www.LSSA.org.za.

YOUR PROPERTY QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Agent lets owner down PROPETY POSER ­ ASK THE EXPERTS ONE of our readers is unhappy with both a recent tenant of her property and the letting agent who initially secured and handled the tenant. It appears that the agent introduced the candidate and assured the reader that she was suitable and that all credit checks had been properly performed. The reader was satisfied with this and signed the lease agreement. At first everything went smoothly. The rental was paid on time and the reader had no other issues with the tenant. However, from the third month problems arose. The rental payments were made on the seventh

of the month or even later and the reader soon realised that a few thousand rands worth of damage had been caused to the property. The agent was not very helpful in recovering the late rental payments. After doing some investigation of her own, the reader discovered that this tenant had judgments against her name and was in fact not suitable, despite the agent’s initial claims to the contrary. The reader then decided to take steps of her own to rectify the situation. The tenant eventually vacated the premises of her own accord, but left the last month’s rental unpaid and the damage to the property unrepaired.

The reader issued summons against the defaulting tenant, but the sheriff could not find any goods to attach to satisfy the judgment that had been obtained. It transpired that the ex-tenant was now also unemployed so her salary could not be garnished to repay the outstanding amounts. The whole experience has left the reader out of pocket and she would like to know where her remedy lies. We are not told what exactly the terms of the agreement between the reader and the letting agent were or whether a written contract was concluded, says Wanda Hayes from Huizemark Jeffreys Bay.

APD­Kouga hou konsert DIE Organisasie vir Liggaamlike Gestremde Persone (APD) in die Kougaarea hou op 28 Oktober ’n fondsinsamelingskonsert by die AGS Deo Doxa Kerk in Jeffreysbaai. Volgens Lawrence Delport van die APD gaan dit nie ’n talentkompetisie wees nie, maar daar gaan wel ’n verskeidenhied “kunstenaars” optree wat hulle talent ten

toon gaan stel. Dit wissel van sang, vermaak, dans, kinderkoor, drama en musiek. Die konsert vind plaas om 6.30nm. vir 7nm. en kaartjies kos R35 per volwassene en R20 per kind. Heerlike verversings sal die aand beskikbaar wees. Vir kaartjies, inligting of om deel te neem, kontak Lawrence Delport 0 083 353 0433 of Mickey Delport by 0 072 106 1181.

“Nevertheless, it does appear that certain representations were made by the agent. The landlord acted upon these representations and suffered damages as a result.” Hayes questions whether the reader would have concluded a rental agreement with any tenant who did not have a clean credit record. “It appears that creditworthiness was a clear requirement set by the reader and that she would not have entered into an agreement with someone who did not comply.” Herman Pieterse from Jan Visser Attorneys in Jeffreys Bay says there may therefore be scope for a contractual claim for damages against the

letting agent. “This would most likely be for breach of the terms of the agreement, which involved finding a creditworthy tenant.” The proof of the breach is quite clear in the tenant’s subsequent misconduct despite the agent’s false assertion of her good standing, says Pieterse. “Alternatively, our reader may have a delictual action against the agent, based on the misrepresentations that were made. When the rea-der acted on these misrepresentations, it led to the damages that were incurred.” Send your property-related questions to pr@fullstopcom.com.
