IE “Brug van die Dood” is beveilig.

Die versperring wat desperate mense moet afskrik om te spring, is voltooi. Die versperring aan weerskante van die Van Stadensrivier-brug ter waarde van R10 miljoen is vandeesmaand voltooi. Met die selfdoodtal op 88 sedert die Van Stadensrivier-brug 41 jaar gelede gebou is, hoop die Vriende van Van Stadensrivierbrugtrust dat dié sper-reling die einde van die “Brug van die Dood” sal beteken. Die Burger het vroeër berug dat die trustvoorsitter, Cliff Rose, verheug is dat die versperring uiteindelik ’n werklikheid is. Vol-

gens hom is hulle reeds sedert 2010 besig met navorsing en projekte om ’n hoër selfmoordsyfer te voorkom. “Die reling is 2,7 m hoog en só ontwerp dat dit feitlik onmoontlik is om daaroor te klim.” Hy sê die spesiale materiaal wat vir die versperring gebruik is, laat motoriste steeds toe om die mooi landskap van die brug te sien en waardeer. Volgens Jeffreysbaai traumatoloog Maryke Pretorius sal die veiligheidsnette beslis bydra om mense wat oorweeg om te spring, te verhoed. “Dié veiligheidsnette bemoeilik die proses aansienlik,” sê sy. “Verder bemagtig dit lede van die Thornhill-polisie deur vir hulle ekstra tyd te gee om

HEARING AIDS AND HEARING TESTS

by die brug te kom. Volgens Pretorius is dit “veral ’n goeie ding dat die veiligheidsnette kort voor die feesseisoen voltooi is. Daar is ’n magdom redes wat bydra tot die toename van selfmoord gedurende die tydperk. “Mense wat selfmoord pleeg, is lewensmoeg en meestal baie depressief. Dit beteken dat basiese take vir hulle te veel is. Die gedagte dat hulle nou nog teen ’n struktuur moet opklim, sal maak dat baie nie meer daar sal spring nie.” .Die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Padagentskap (Sanral) het saamgespan met die trust om die projek ’n werklikheid te maak en Sanral betaal die rekening.

KOUGA EXPRESS | THURSDAY 28 NOVEMBER 2013

All set for safe festive season MONIQUE BASSON RESIDENTS can expect more roadblocks, more patrols and a “zero tolerance” attitude this December and January. The Kouga Municipality have all their ducks in a row to ensure a safe and successful holiday season for residents and tourists alike. They will leave no stone unturned to enforce the law fairly, but robustly. According to municipal spokesperson Mfundo Sobele, the municipality will appoint eight additional traffic officers on a temporary basis to help ensure a safer festive season - clamping down on drivers under the influence, as well as those with no regard for the speed limit. “We will have a zero tolerance campaign on drinking and driving, as well as motor-

ists driving without a licence,” says Sobele. “We will furthermore clamp down on unroadworthy vehicles and conduct free roadworthy tests at our station between December 2 and 5 in order to combat infringements of the law.” Sobele continues that municipal officials will assist with traffic control at busy intersections during the holidays and point controls will be conducted at various entrances to the beaches, particularly on New Year’s Day. “All of this will be done to ensure that our roads are safe for all users.” Sobele says: “Joint operations with the SAPS will be carried out, with a special focus on illegal liquor trading and the monitoring of liquor trading hours.” Residents will also be relieved to hear that strict measures on stray animals will be enforced. “These animals cause damage to properties and pose a great danger to moto-

rists,” says Sobele. “No animals will be allowed on the Blue Flag Beach (Dolphin Beach), as well as other beaches. Dogs must be on a leash for the safety of beachgoers and others animals. “Our officers will conduct regular patrols on beaches to guard against alcohol consumption.” Prospective criminals will have to tread lightly as four additional Law Enforcement officers have been appointed for the season. “These officers will be deployed at Dolphin Beach to make sure people abide by the rules and that they keep up with the standards of the Blue Flag.” Some 27 additional life guards will be appointed, of which 18 are trained locals. “We request residents and visitors not to be alone or swim in remote areas as they may be out of sight of the life savers.”

ARE you tired of the murder, rape and abuse of children and women? Role players in Jeffreys Bay joined hands and are set to take to the street in protest. The Assembly of God, in conjuction with the Jeffreys Bay Police and Traffic Department, will host a prayerwalk on November 30. The walk will start at Shoprite Usave at 10:00. The Prayerwalk froms part of the 16 Day of Activism against Women and Children. Everyone is welcome to join the walk. For more information, contact Margaret at 0 084 026 2636.

Hustler, wat einde September, vanjaar sy deure in die ou treinstasie-gebou in Voortrekkerweg geopen het, is ’n klipgooi van die ingang van die Laerskool Stulting en op die roete waarmee skoolkinders daagliks van en na die skool stap. Volgens ’n ontstelde inwoner, wat anoniem wil bly, het niemand die skool of ouers oor die opening van die winkel geken nie, en is personeel en ouers omgekrap. “Hoe is dit moontlik dat toestemming verleen word dat só ’n winkel ’n paar meter van ’n laerksool geopen word? Graad 2-leerders kyk reg op die winkel vanuit hul klaskamervensters af. “Ouers word nou deur hul kinders met vrae gekonfronteer wat hulle rooi in die gesig laat. Dié weetgierige kinders wil weet watter tipe volwasse speelgoed word daar verkoop en presies wat is lubricant.” Volgens die inwoner het hulle reeds op 16 Oktober ’n petisie met meer as ’n duisend

handtekeninge, asook ’n brief aan die Kougamunisipaliteit oorhandig, maar het nog geen terugvoering van hulle ontvang nie. “Die hele ouergemeenskap en selfs diegene sonder kinders ondersteun die idee dat die winkel nié op die skool se voorstoep moet handel dryf nie,” sê sy. “Ons vra nie dat die winkel toegemaak word nie. Ons vra net dat dit minstens 5km van opvoedkundige instansies moet wees.” Volgens skoohoof Cornelius Coetzer meen die beheerliggaam dat so ’n winkel naby ’n opvoedkundige instansie onvanpas is. “Die skool is glad nie vooraf oor die opening van die winkel in kennis gestel nie. “Ons het reeds vertoë aan die munisipaliteit en die Departement van Onderwys gerig.” Volgens winkeleienaar Deon Louw, wat in Mei die Hustler in Jeffreysbaai oopgemaak het, is dit nie sy bedoeling om die skool kwaad te maak of om op mense se tone te trap nie. “Vir my is die ligging van die winkel in Humansdorp perfek,” sê hy. “Na al die negatiewe reaksie in Mei vanjaar na die opening van winkel in Da Gamaweg, het ek dit juis goedgedink om die nuwe winkel effens uit die dorp uit oop te maak. Die winkel is altemit op aanvraag van sommige inwoners geopen.

“Ek het seker gemaak dat ’n mens nie van die straat af kan sien wat binne die winkel aangaan nie. Alles is behoorlik toegemaak, selfs die vensters is toegemaak. “Hustler is nie ’n bordeel wat net skurwe produkte verkoop nie. Ons is daar om mans en vrouens met hul huwelike te help.” Volgens Louw sal hy enige tyd skuif as iemand ’n ander winkel aan hom beskikbaar stel. Teen druktyd kon geen kommentaar van die munisipaliteit verkry word nie.

Hoër lone vir huiswerkers HUISWERKERS leef van die nuwe maand bietjie makliker wanneer lone styg. Die implikasies kan ongelukkig legio wees, aangesien werkgewers noustrop trek weens die stram ekonomie. Die minimumloon vir werkers wat meer as 27 uur per week werk, styg van 1 Desember tot R9.63 per uur in stedelike gebiede, teenoor R8.30 in landelike gebiede. “In Gebied A word die minimumloon R9.63 per uur, R433.35 per week (vir ’n 45uur week) en R1 877.10 per maand. In Gebied B word dit R8.30 per uur, R373.50 per week (vir ’n 45-uur week) en R1 618.37 per maand wees,” sê die Departement van Arbeid in ’n verklaring. Gebied A bestaan uit alle stedelike gebiede met munisipaliteite, soos OosLonden, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria en Johannesburg, terwyl Gebied B alle ander munisipaliteite insluit.

Die loon-aanpassing is deel van ’n jaarlikse bepaling wat die minister van Arbeid, Mildred Oliphant, in terme van die Wet op Basiese Diensvoorwaardes maak. Volgens die verklaring styg die minimumloon van huishulpe wat 27 uur of minder per week werk in Gebied A, tot R11.27 per uur, R304.29 per week (27-uur week) en R1 318.48 per maand. In Gebied B styg dit tot R9.80 per uur, R264.60 per week (vir ’n 27-uur week) en R1 146.51 per maand. Die departement waarsku dat ’n huiswerker volgens die wet nie meer as 45 uur ’n week mag werk nie. Werkers wat vyf dae ’n week werk, mag nie meer as nege uur per dag werk nie, terwyl ’n werkweek van ses dae nie meer as agt uur per dag mag hê nie. “Oortyd word teen een-en-’n-half keer die gewone loon betaal, of die werknemer kan betaalde verlof neem.”

Warning: dog snatchers posing as SPCA inspectors MONIQUE BASSON The Department of Social Development and Special Programmes handed over a 16 men squid vessel, called the SnowGoose, to members of the Oyster Bay Fishing Project on November 22.

ONE OF A KIND

Oyster Bay youth receives fishing boat THE Department of Social Development and Special Programmes handed over a 16 men squid vessel, called the SnowGoose, to members of the Oyster Bay Fishing Project. The R800 000 fishing boat was officially handed over by MEC Pemmy Majodina on November 22. Over the next 5 years the members of the Oyster Bay Fishing Project will be able to catch, process, and market their fish, and they will learn how to run the boat as a business. The entire project will be mentored by Balobi Fishing Enterprises until such time the Oyster Bay Fishing Project will be able to run the boat and its catches as a fully fledged business venture. Majodina said: “The Department founded and support this Project because of the good motives the project members have for the community. They are not there to enrich themselves, but endeavour to uplift the community as a whole. They care for their society and strive to protect and develop the poor and vulnerable, creating a better life for all. “Oyster Bay is the only black-owned fishing corporative in the country.” Founded in August this year, Project members took to the sea in October - returning

with 900kg of squid and securing R80 000 for the Project. With the re-opening of the season, they again set out on November 22 in conjunction with 25 other fishing boats. The SnowGoose will be at sea for three weeks. It is estimated that members of the project can make more than R800 000 in the 21 days that the fishing season is open. All fish are sold to Balobi Fishing Group, which is an integrated fishing group located in Port St Francis. They package and export squid, hake, pilchards and line fish. Future plans for the Project include the awarding of bursaries for students passing grade 12 by 70% or more. The Oyster Bay Fishing Project consists of seven previously disadvantaged members six males and one female - and was funded by the Department in August this year to the tune of over R1.4 million. The aim of the project is to uplift members and their community from poverty and to create job opportunities in the small scale fishing community of Oyster Bay, as well as to address issues of food security. On the day, Majodina also distributed food parcels to 20 needy families of Oyster Bay and surrounding farms.

THE Humansdorp SPCA has issued an urgent warning to pet owners to be aware of imposters posing as SPCA inspectors. According to Jessica Naudé from the Humansdorp SPCA, reports of pets being stolen throughout the Kouga are rife at the moment. “We received a number of complaints where these imposters collected dogs from their owners under the pretext to have them vaccinated. None of these dogs were ever returned. These incidents mainly took place in the informal settlements. “The thefts have happened during the day and night. We are urging the community to be vigilant after this spate of recent dog thefts and attempted dog thefts. “It is believed that these dogs are being used for illegal dog fighting.”

According to Naudé the most wanted dogs are German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Pittbulls and Boerbulls. These are high in demand because they are more aggressive and healthier. “Do not hand over animals to anyone claiming to be from the SPCA without checking first,” says Naudé. “Genuine employees will wear the official uniform when on duty with registered insignia, they will be in possession of formal identification and will not be afraid of anyone verifying that they are who they claim to be. “We ask everyone to be sensible and alert. Even if an individual gives a telephone number to ring, ensure it is the actual number of the SPCA. We urge everyone to have the number of their local SPCA on their cell phones.” The Humansdorp SPCA can be reached at 0 042 295 2814.

KOUGA EXPRESS | THURSDAY 28 NOVEMBER 2013

Kouga wins court battle against DA THE Democratic Alliance (DA) suffered its second defeat against Kouga Municipality this year when the Supreme Court of Appeals dismissed, with full costs, an appeal by the party that the appointment of the municipality’s directors be declared unlawful. The DA also lost the case in the Port Elizabeth High Court in January this year, also with full costs. Welcoming the judgment, Kouga Executive Mayor Booi Koerat said the Supreme and High Court decisions made it clear that the appointments were legal and that the incumbents had the necessary qualifications, skills and experience to head the institution. The judgements followed claims by the DA last year that the municipality had acted unlawfully when it appointed directors Carleen Arends (Tourism, Creative Industries and Local Economic Development), Carlien Burger

(Finance), Victor Felton (Infrastructure and Planning), Japie Jansen (Social Services) and Thobeka Tom (Administration, Monitoring and Evaluation) in August 2012. “It is good to have confirmation from the highest courts of law that the right people were appointed to take Kouga forward and that the right process was followed,” the Mayor said. “We are grateful that we can now put this unpleasantness behind us. The opposition’s political game-playing has been obstructing our efforts to improve services, but we can now focus on unlocking the full potential of this institution and the region as a whole.” He said that the Supreme Court had been highly critical of the manner in which the DA had approached the court. “They wasted the court’s time and were reproached for forcing the municipality into a legal battle when the matter could have been

resolved internally. This is why they were ordered to pay the municipality’s legal costs as well,” he said. He said that the Supreme Court had upheld the municipality’s contention that the appointments were lawful as the institution did have a staff establishment and the Municipal Manager had been consulted sufficiently. “The court rulings have vindicated Kouga. We were able to prove that the correct process was followed and that our directors have the relevant skills as required by section 56 (b) of the Municipal Systems Act 32 of 2000.” He said the court case had been based on misinformation that had been fed to opposition councillors by disgruntled employees. “It is of serious concern that opposition councillors would allow themselves to be used in this manner. It is of even greater concern that they would encourage officials to behave inappropriately,” he said.

“In so doing, they not only wasted the court’s time but delayed the progress our communities deserve.”

Jolandie Rust (29) became the first woman to circumnavigate the entire African continent solo. Four days before her journey came to an end last Sunday, she stopped over in Jeffreys Bay. She set out in April 2011 to live her dream of becoming the first woman to cycle around the continent. She made it to Northern Angola, where her bicycle and most of her gear was taken from her by four armed men. Jolandie returned home and relaunched her adventure in April 2012, this time on a BMW F650 GS Dakar motorbike. She crossed 27 countries ­ including the Congo, Cameroon, Nigerie, Libie, Egypt, Soedan, Tanzania and Mozambique ­ covering a distance of over 40 000km and using 2 000 litre of petrol. She now wants to compete in the Dakar Rally, being the first woman to do so, and travel through South America. PHOTO:SUPPLIED

Weeskatjie geniet ‘hondelewe’ MONIQUE BASSON HY mag dalk nie blaf nie, maar hy ‘tjank’ nes ’n hond by die agterdeur en volg sy honde-ma oral waar sy gaan. Dié kat-”hond” is een van drie weeskatjies wat in September, vanjaar deur ’n opgeskote Jack Russel, Mia, aangeneem is na hul ma ’n week na hulle geboorte dood is. Hulle ma was die stoorkat by die Rooinek Boerdery op Patensie, waar hul mense-ma, Marizanne Terblanche, werk. “Ons het besluit om die swart katjie met die mank been te hou. Die ander het almal goeie huise gekry,” sê Marizanne. “Kyk, daardie dingetjie (beter bekend as Snorre) dink regtig hy is ’n hond. Hy het darem kat-maniere ook; hy gebruik darem sy sandbak en klim in die boot.” Snorre het sy naam gekry, omdat sy wit snorbaarde al is wat jy sien wanneer hy aangehardloop kom. “Mia sal by die agterdeur staan en fyn blafgeluide maak as sy wil uitgaan. Nou het Snorre agtergekom as hy dieselfde doen, word die agterdeur oopgemaak.” Dié kat skrik ook nie vir water nie. “Hy kom sit sonder ’n gekerm op my skoot in die bad. Dan word hy behoorlik gesjampoe en lekker gewas. Dit word gevolg deur ’n swem, en eers daarna kan ek hom droogmaak en vol babapoeier gooi,” sê Marizanne laggend. Snorre se slaapplek is nie sommer enige plek nie. Nee, dit is bo-op Marizanne se kopkussing, ingewoel tussen haar hare. As sy dit

net waag om te beweeg, kry sy ’n ontevrede klap. “Elke aand voor slaaptyd is dit speeltyd. Raak die dingetjie vir jou kwaad. Hy hardloop deur die huis, skeef-skeef en krom bespring hy alles en almal om hom - te ougat,” sê sy. “Nee kyk, hy en die honde speel dat die biesies bewe. Hulle almal lek en bad Snorre dat hy soms sopwaternat by die huis inkom. En hulle pas hom op - oral waar hy loop, loop die Jack Russell saam. Mia raak nie ’n bietjie kwaad as sy dink daar word te rof met haar ‘kleintjie’ gespeel nie.”

Snorrie het ’n perfekte “hartjie” op sy bors.

’N EERSTE VIR DIE KOUGA

Renostermis laat lelies blom MONIQUE BASSON TONNE renostermis is die geheim agter duisende welriekende lelies wat kop omhoog op ’n oop stuk grond net buite Jeffreysbaai pronk. Dít en die kennis, liefde en ‘groen vingers’ van Kouga se eie bolleman. Tuinboukundige Hendrik Crouwkamp, in samewerking met Johan en Susan Lottering van die Lombardini Wildsplaas, het vroeër vanjaar ’n kleinskaalse blommeplaas op Lombardini op die been gebring. Wat as ’n weldeurdagte eksperiment begin het, blom nou in oordadige kleur en prag. Dié blommeplaas is die enigste in die OosKaap wat lelies verkoop en die enigste in SuidAfrika om renostermis as bemesting te gebruik. Hulle verskaf lelies aan Pick ’n Pay vanaf George tot in Oos-Londen, asook aan die publiek. Volgens Crouwkamp - wie sy opleiding in Nederland in blomproduksie ontvang het en vir 10 jaar in Johannesburg vir ’n Nederlandse maatskappy wat in bolplantproduksie vanaf tulpe tot lelies spesialiseer, gewerk het - het die tekort aan plaaslike hoë gehalte blomproduksie in die Oos-Kaap hom dadelik opgeval. “Ek het die eienaars van Lombardini genader en hulle het my die groen lig gegee om ’n blommeplaas te begin wat die behoefte doeltreffend sal aanspreek,” sê Crouwkamp wat ’n geweldige kennis van blomproduksie het. “Huidiglik kom die meeste snyblomme, insluitende lelies, hoofsaaklik van Kaapstad, Johannesburg en Kenya. Dit verkort ook die raklewe van die blomme, aangesien dit nagenoeg eers vyf dae nadat dit gepluk is, in plaaslike winkels beskikbaar is.”

Volgens Crouwkamp is die eerste leliebol op 2 April vanjaar geplant en die eerste lelie is op 22 Augustus geoes. “Vanaf die plant van die bol tot die oes van die blom vat dit tussen 90 en 120 dae. Ons sit tussen 5 000 en 10 000 bolle per week in die grond en gebruik meer as 3 ton renostermis vir bemesting. Die mis, wat sommer op die plaas bymekaar gemaak word, is die groot geheim vir ons pragtige lelies,” sê ’n trotse Crouwkamp. “Ons maak gebruik van die Spaanse hangstruktuur - dit beteken dat ons glad nie pale binne die struktuur gebruik nie. Verder vergroot ons die struktuur soos wat ons meer bolle plant.” Volgens Crouwkamp is dit ’n uitdaging om blomme in die Oos-Kaap te groei as gevolg van die baie wind. “Maar ’n boer maak ’n plan en ek het besluit om die uitdaging tot my voordeel gebruik. Ons lelies het geen meeldou of bakteriese siektes nie. “Die kleigrond hou sy eie probleme in. Bolle hou nie van baie water nie, dus saai ons gras tussen die bolle om van die oortollige water ontslae te raak. Aldus Crouwkamp word die kwaliteit van ’n lelie geken aan sy regop kop (blom). Dit is belangrik dat daar genoeg kalsium en magnesium in die plant is. Dit help met die gesondheid van die plant en verlang die raklewe.. “Die groen kleur dui op die aanwesigheid van kalsium en magnesium wat belangrik is vir ’n gesonde blom.” Tans word 18 verskillende lelies gekweek, insluitende longiflorum, oriental en umbulatum. Bolle word nie net gekoop nie, maar ook op die plaas gekweek. “So verseker ons dat daar altyd vars materiaal is,” sê Crouwkamp. Hoewel hulle op die oomblik slegs lelies

kweek, is daar groot planne in die pyplyn. “Ons beoog om eersdaags die een-stopblommewinkel in die Oos-Kaap te wees en daar gaan binnekort van sonneblomme tot rose op die plaas pronk. Ek het reeds met die uitleg van ’n kleurvolle roostuin begin. Dié

geurige tuin, wat as ’n funksielokaal gaan dien, sal aanstaande jaar Februarie voltooi wees,” sê Crouwkamp. .Lelies, vir jou huis of funkies, kan by Trendz in Jeffreysbaai bestel word. Kontak hulle by 0 042 293 3974..

KOUGA EXPRESS | THURSDAY 28 NOVEMBER 2013

Let your bark be heard . . . MARIËTTE HERMANN THE holiday season is once again nearly upon us. Summer weather and time off to visit with friends and family are what we humans have been looking forward to all year, but we must remember that this time of the year presents some real challenges and potential hazards for our pets. The population of Jeffreys Bay is growing by the day as more and more holiday makers descend to enjoy the beach and a well-de-

served rest. As a result, the roads are getting busier and busier, which can be especially dangerous for our dogs.Try and keep your pets adequately fenced in at all times with gates properly latched. When out for a run or a walk, keep your dogs on a lead, particularly in the vicinity of busy roads and take care when driving - look out for any stray or lost doggies on our roads. Despite our very best efforts, dogs may sometimes escape. Prevention is obviously better than cure, but if they do go on walkabout make sure you increase the chances of

their safe return by making them easily identifiable. Your dog should have a collar and a tag which states their name and your contact details. Are your contact details up to date? If your dogs don’t have visible identification I would urge you to get them a dog tag stating their name and your contact phone number. You can also have your dog micro-chipped by your veterinarian. If possible, it is best to have both methods of identification in place, so should your lost dog be found it will be easy to ensure that he or she is returned to you as quickly as possible.

With people come their dogs! There are going to be a lot of new dogs around town in new surroundings over the next couple of months and some will inevitably stray. If you spot a dog that looks lost and does not seem to be injured, please phone the Humansdorp SPCA immediately. If your own dog gets lost, inform the SPCA in the first instance and then check with all the local vets and pet charities. This is the season … of soaring temperatures and hot sunshine, so we need to make sure our dogs have plenty of fresh cool water to drink inside and outside the house all day long. Although some dogs like to bask in the sun, they must have a shaded area. If this does not occur naturally where you are staying, you can always buy shade cloth which is widely available at hardware and other stores in Jeffreys Bay. Long-haired breeds will benefit from a haircut which will help to keep them cool. The hot weather also brings a resurgence in our flea and tick population. Although particularly common in tall grass, amongst the dunes or in wooded areas, they are also be in our lawns and gardens. These creatures are a nuisance for pets, but they may also carry disease which can affect the health of not only our pets but ourselves and our families as well. It is safest to have adequate controls in place such as topical treatments or anti-flea and tick collars, so please see your veterinarian for advice. That’s all for now, enjoy the run up to the Holiday Season and as always if you have any questions or comments please contact me at mariette@sirwoofalot.co.za.

Please give us a loving home

Jessie is very friendly and is a real lady. She needs a home as soon as possible as she is getting kennel stressed. She loves people.

Koda is a bundle of fun with lots of bounce. He has an awesome personality and loves other dogs. To adopt Jessie or Koda, contact the Humansdorp SPCA at 0 042 295 28104 or phone their emergency number 0 073 121 8963. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

CITIZEN JOURNALIST

’n Dag in die lewe van ’n visserman KAPTEIN HENNIE DIE weer op die nuus word goed dopgehou. Skielik weergalm die geluid van die telefoon deur die huis - dit is kort na 20:00. Instinktief weet ek wie aan die anderkant van die foon wag. Dit is die eienaar van ons boot - die wind is in ons guns, wes tussen sewe en 11 knope. “Gaan julle more ’n kans vat?” vra hy. “Die weer lyk mooi.” “Dit is reg so, meneer,” antwoord ek opgewonde. In rekordtyd word alles gereël. My bemanning word gebel, want moreoggend 04:00 moet alles reg wees. Hul terugvoering is eenparig: “Dankie Kappie, ons sal reg wees. Ons het die geldjies nodig en ’n vars vissie-eet sal nogal lekker wees.” Vroulief kry my eetgoedjies reg, sit koeldranke in die vrieskas en maak seker daar is ’n piesang vir potas as die naarheid pla. Ek hol aasboks toe en kry my hoeke, stroppe, lyne en sinkers reg. Die eienaar reël vir die ou bakkie, viskratte, ys, aas en brandstofkanne. Vroeg die oggend is ons uit die vere. Dit is nogal koud, die somer is laat en in die nag het die oostewind gewaai en alles kom staan en nat maak. Ek ry stadig in die mis om my bemanning op te tel. Hulle is gesoute hengelaars, of moet ek sê vissers, tussen 25 en 65 en baie gewillig. Almal is opgewonde en lus vir visvang. Eerste is my permithouer. Hy groet beleefd: “More Kappie, mooi oggend en lekker koud né?” Sy getroue vroutjie staan in die deur en waai: “Vang baie vis, julle en sterkte.” Ek bestuur versigtig. Die paaie is gaar, tussen die bottelstukke, gate en modderpoele moet ek nog uitswaai vir die honde wat opgekrul in die teerpad lê - seker vir bietjie hitte. Ons stop vir brandstof en maak vol met unleaded vir ons 4-slag buiteboord motors. Gelukkig is hulle baie ligter as die ou Popcorn masjiene. Ek bel ons aasman wakker en koop ses

bokse sardyn, ’n boks ’n man, en 5kg tjokka vir ’n harde asie. R1 500 later arriveer ons by St. Francishawe om 05:00. Ons laai ons emmers vol kit and tackle, viskratte, aas, brandstof, ys en varswater. Elke man moet ’n liter varswater saamvat, soos deur die wet verlang. Ek ry om die bakkie weg te vat na die parkeerarea wat nog donker en stil is. Ek gebruik dié goue oomblik om my kop te sak en eerbiedig vir Onse Vader te vra om ons te beskerm en veilig by ons families terug te besorg. “Seën ons lewe, Jesus, en dankie vir U liefde - Amen”. Ek loop oor die nuwe mooi kaai tot by ons boot. Trots klim ek op haar waar sy met haar neus trots in die lug lê, dit is al asof dié Butfcat sê: “Welkom terug my skipper, alles is nog in orde”. Ek kyk dat haar veiligheidstoerusting in orde is en alles in ’n werkende toestand vir ons vaart. Met die draai van die sleutels en die indruk van die killswitch, brul haar 115HP Suzi’s onmiddellik. Ek kry so ’n lekker gevoel toe my bemanning sê: “Kaptein, vandag gaan ons goed visvang.” Die manne terg mekaar en elkeen se sê-goed laat my lekker lag. Met die dekligte aan, pak ons al ons seegoeters in haar boeg dat sy sommer sak, maar ek weet sy kan dit vat en nog ’n ton vis terugbring as sy moet. Ons bevestig ons ETA met die sekuriteitswag op die kaai en met ons veiligheidsgordels aan, skreeu ek cast off! en daar gaan ons. Elke bemanningslid het ’n taak om te verrig, hetsy dit is om die anker te lig, die parachute te werk, brandstofkanne omruil, vir die batterye te sorg, ’n ogie oor die stern hou, die console beman of om die aas op ys te hou. Ons werk 40 seemylee vandag, want die vissies was te laag en swak voor die watertoring en om die eerste punt by die Lighuis. Die seestrome was baie sterk na die noord-oos winde, of warm bergwinde soos ons dit noem. Dit is ’n uur se vaart na die eerste merk en

die bemanning hou die see noukeurig dop, want die walvisse is nog half aan die slaap. Ek druk haar neus in die son wat vir ons lê en loer. “Môre Martha” - noem hulle haar. Na ongeveer ’n uur gooi ons anker. Die diepte is 87m of 42 Fathom, soos my manne sê. Die Germini Finder skreeu van die vis onder die boot. Ek sê, manne, vandag vang ons nog Makriele ook. Die voëls duik vraterig op en af. Die opdrag kom: “Stywe lyne manne, vang hulle en word sommer skatryk”. Ons vang ’n paar Doppies en Pangas. Toe kom die grotes. “Hulle groei, kaptein, hulle groei hierdie kant,” skreeu ’n man. “Steek hulle Jeffreysbaaiertjies, steek hulle.” Toe kom daar ’n paar groot Geelbekke en ’n Kabeljou of twee tussen-in. “Sjoe”, skreeu een man, “so diep hierdie tyd van die jaar, Kappie”. Ek sê: “Vang hulle boetas, vang hulle”. Ons geluk was van korte duur, want om ons sirkel die Blouhaaie of “Macko’s” soos die sporthengelaars sal sê. “Pasop manne, die goed spring sommer in die boot. As julle vas is, sny maar eerder jul lyne.” Ons werk met handlyne en het nie katrolle nie, dus vat hulle so elke tweede, derde Geelbek dat net die kop uitkom – vlymskerp tande. Sjoe! Hulle het ons opgevreet en soos ’n regte taksman hulle gedeelte ook gevat – miskien n bietjie meer … “Lines-up”, kom die opdrag. Hier moet ons wegkom, die tye het verander want ons “Macko’s” werk gewoonlik in 60 seemyle daar waar die Tunas woon. “Hulle is honger”, sê my een man. Daar is nie meer vis soos dit was nie, waar is die Stokvis van toeks? Weg. My fishfinder wys die watertemperatuur op 21°C, te warm hierdie. Gevaarlik naby ons kom ’n vragskip verby, of stomers soos my mense sê. Ons groet – boop, bop. Ons gaan nader, gooi die parachute in die water en dryf stadig op die lynvisbanke en vang hier en daar ’n klein Roman. Toe eweskielik byt mooi, baie mooi Rooisteenbrasse.

Almal die regte groote, maar moet ongelukkig terug geplaas word. Dit is rooi datalys-vis en mag nie meer op die boot wees nie. Ons is hartseer, want dit is ’n lekker eetvis. Ek sê byt vas manne, die Miss-Lucy swem saam hulle. Sit witgoud (tjokka ) aan jou 6 nulhoek. Met ’n stuk wit- en harde-asie saam ’n stukkie Sardyn – dodelik. Ons het wel ’n paar gevang, maar die “verraaiers” het kom dagsê. As die Basterman of Sandvis en “Time to leave” - ons Kaapse Stompneusie - loer, kan ons maar huiswaarts keer. Ons is moeg, 12 ure op die see en ek sê manne lyne op, kom ons gaan maak anker en slag ons vis. Ons rûe is maar treurig, maar ons ou manne hou by en was die vis mooi en lê hulle onder die plastiek en bokse van Sardyn in kratte. Sodoende gaan dit nie in die water nie, want besoedeling kan jou nou al R20 000 uit die sak jaag. Ons vaar terug teen ’n geniepsige westewind wat alles natmaak, maar gelukkig ook skoonmaak. Hierdie is hardebaard manne en hulle kan die punch vat. Ons kom die hawe breëbors in, ons het ’n krat-en-’n half vis per man gevang - ongeveer 350kg. Die aflaai is stadig, ons is styf. Daar is Kapenare, Romans, Miss Lucy, Geelbek en ’n paar Kabeljoue wat vir my lê en loer in die bakkie toe ek terugkeer van mooring. Ek druk die bakkie se neus huiswaarts en die son sak alreeds agter die berg van die nuwe windplaas. Hoog staan die waaiers en my permithouer sê ja Kaptein, alles verander, maar Jesus nooit. Ja dis so waar, nog so twee ure se werk dan is ons klaar. Terug ry, vis inweeg op ys en wegpak. Almal is tevrede en ek besorg hulle terug by hul families met n fraai of twee om lekker te bak. Hande seer, rug af, stap ek by die huis in waar vroulief staan met haar neusie in die lug opgetrek en sê daai ou gesegde: “A fisherman doesn’t die, he only smells that way”. 04:00 more maak ons weer so.

New Calamari Tasting at Port St Francis

Polisie was oues se hande en voete ZONOVIA BEUKES

ESTI STEWART

DAMES van die Jeffreysbaai Polisiekantoor het hul gewone dagtaak vir dié van liefde en omgee verruil.

WHAT would a visit to the winelands be without a wine tasting?

Dié dames het onglans na die senior burgers by die Amala Ouetehuis en die Pellsrus Son-

skyngroep in Jeffreysbaai uitgereik. “Hier het hulle soos Maria Magdalena wat Jesus se voete gewas het, uit nederigheid en respek die oumense se hande en voete gewas,” sê a.o. Zonovia Beukes. “Deur dié liefdesdaad van die dames, het hulle samesyn en wedersydse respek bewerkstellig.”

How can you visit the hub of the chokka industry, and not treat yourself to a unique calamari tasting? Calamari Tasting are new on the menu at Port St Francis, where Juan Schmidt at On the Harbour Seafood and Grill stands ready with his version of a calamari tasting – taste the difference between local calamari and imported Patagonian calamari, prepared three ways. Juan prepares a tasting of imported vs local calamari, prepared Cajun, grilled, crumbed and, on the side, some local calamari heads, deep fried. The cost of the tasting is only R50 per plate. It goes down very well with a glass of white wine and surely you will follow it up with an order for mains. For more information, contact Juan Schmidt at 0 082 782 4366 or send an e-mail to juan.ontheharbour.yahoo.com.

SPORT 15

Train race is back ­ with a twist THE popular race between man and machine,

the Great Train Race, is the inspiration behind a new train race to put Nelson Mandela Bay on the map in 2014.

The inaugural Nelson Mandela Bay Train Race will take place on July 17, and unlike the original Great Train Race, it will see teams of five taking on a Metro train in a 40km challenge from PE to Uitenhage, via Despatch. The narrow gauge Apple Express is currently out of service. Race organiser Michael Zoetmulder of Zports, said the new Train Race route would ensure much easier logistics for the teams and potentially enable companies to enter multiple teams. Individuals can also take part. Zoetmulder said races with a man versus machine concept have always been popular, and Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism (NMBT) have joined forces with Zports, and the munic-

ipality to ensure the revival of the Train Race. NMBT CEO, Mandlakazi Skefile, said they welcomed the idea of the event as it would continue to promote the region’s status as a popular sporting destination. “NMBT supports the return of the Train Race concept,” Skefile said. “Unique industry events are becoming of greater importance as they enable a destination to market itself in this emerging market and also create a unique and an authentic experience in the destination for the visitor. An event of this nature has the potential for a great increase in the social and economical benefits of the destination.” Zoetmulder said, “Over the past 3 years we have been in discussion with the Passenger Railway Agency of South Africa (PRASA) to find a solution to re-establish the Train Race and are confident that we’ve found a longterm solution that will also become the first

Krieketuitslae: Mentors JBay Krieketklub DIE Mentors Jeffreysbaai Krieketklub het die afgelope naweek skoonskip tydens hul verskillende wedstryde gemaak. Die Mentors JBay Krieketklub se eerste span het die Kouga Krieketbklub met vyf paaltjies gewen en ’n bonuspunt verdien. Die Kouga Krieketklub is vir 121 lopies almal uit in 42 boulbeurte. Mentors het 127 lopies vir vyf in 24 boulbeurte aangeteken. Anroe Steyn (2/14) en Quintin Fegan (4/21) is as die beste boulers aangewys, terwyl Quintin Fegan (48 lopies) en Lampies (29 lopies) as die beste kolwers aangewys is. Mentors se tweede span het met 122 lopies gewen. Dié span het 187 lopies aangeteken,

major event to incorporate the three towns of Nelson Mandela Bay – Port Elizabeth, Despatch and Uitenhage – when we race against a Metro Rail train between Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage in 2014.” “The Great Train Race was a unique destination event and it was a huge shame to see this event come to a standstill in 2004. We hope to ensure that the Nelson Mandela Bay Train Race will avoid any of the controversy that surrounded the Great Train Race in that the new look train race will be a communitybuilding charity event with no cash prize money up for grabs. Teams will race the train for branding rights and winners’ floating trophies. “Like the Urban Run, which raised in excess of R230 000 for charity this year, the Nelson Mandela Bay Train Race will challenge teams and companies to support nominated charity projects within the communities

along the way. Zports hope to partner with Rotary and their 6 local clubs to identify and manage these community projects to ensure that the Train Race leaves behind a sustainable legacy each year. The Nelson Mandela Bay Train Race will be a 40km relay event for teams comprising five runners and will include corporate, social, club and schools categories. Each year the race start will alternate between the Port Elizabeth station and Uitenhage station, with 2014 being the “up” run from Port Elizabeth to Uitenhage. Zoetmulder said opportunities are also being made available for companies to partner the event through the sponsorship of the various transition and water table points along the route. Visit www.nmbtrainrace.co.za for further information or contact Zports at 0 041 484 7860

ECOC ends race season

terwyl die Despatch Krieketklub slegs 65 lopies kon aanteken. Ernie Ferreira (41 lopies) en Es Smith (62 lopies) is as die beste kolwers aangewys, en Es Smith (3/14) en W. Koertzen (2/19) as die beste boulers. Mentors se derde span het met een paaltjie teen die Humansdorp Krieketklub verloor. Mentors het 145 lopies vir vyf boulbeurte aangeteken teenoor Humansdorp se 146 lopies vir nege boulbeurte aangeteken het. JP is met 81 lopies as die kolwer van die dag aangewys en Sheldon Niemand (3/24) as die bouler van die wedstryd.

Windsurfing Nationals to be held THE St Francis Classic, the second leg of the annual National Slalom Tour between KwaZulu Natal, Eastern Province and Western Cape, will take place in the greater St Francis from November 29 to December 1. The section between St Francis Bay main beach and the Kromme River is the preferred venue for the races, however a final decision will be made every day between 08:00 and 09:00 at Skipper’s briefing. “The final venue depends on the weather conditions of the day, and if the wind is not favourable, we will move to either Kabeljous or the dam,” says organiser Greg Betts. “Slalom really is an exciting discipline that every windsurfer sooner or later will get into. Even the most hardcore waveheads some-

times like to speed it up and see who’s faster. You don’t have to be a world class racer who is always sailing heavily overpowered to experience the rush of sailing fast and overtaking another windsurfer. “A lot of windsurfers like to believe that they’re not competitive and are more into soul surfing than the competitive corner of the sport, but not many people can resist the temptation of seeing who is the fastest windsurfer.” Slalom is a high speed race in typically two sorts of slalom courses. The Figure of Eight includes surfing all of the course on a beam reach with two floating marks that have to be jibed around, and in Downwind two marks are laid and sailors sail a downwind course - gibing around each mark only once.

Slalom boards are small and narrow, and require high winds. Funboard class racing rules require a wind of 12 to 35 knots for the slalom event to take place. The event has two divisions within the slalom races: Masters and Blasters, with Blasters being the not so serious surfers just wanting to have fun. The entry fee is R450 (Masters) and R250 (Blasters) respectively. The final leg of

the tour will take place in Langebaan from January 24 to 26, 2013. For entries and more information contact Greg Betts of Windsurfing South Africa Eastern Cape at 0 073 611 3259.
