Wat ’n fees!

Woensdag se Langs die Oever-Boeredag op die plaas Montrose naby Die Eiland was ‘n reusesukses en dit is duidelik dat dit gekom het om te bly en uit te brei. Dié lugfoto’s deur die Bulletin se Jacques Smuts is vroegoggend geneem en deur die dag het die boere in hul honderdtalle van

’Reds’ turn on Premier

heinde en verre opgedaag. Dit was ‘n fees met demonstrasies, ‘n veiling, produkbekendstellings, kuier, lekker eet en kennismakings. Binne is nog inligting oor die dag en in volgende Vrydag se Bulletin sal ons gewilde AgriBulletin gelaai wees met foto’s en inligting oor die suksesvolle dag.

Premier Cassel Mathale’s difficulties are worsening. One of the latest setbacks for Limpopo’s premier is the SA Communist Party’s strong stance against Mathale’s reshuffling of his cabinet. The SACP say comrades who opposed Mathale were replaced by his loyalists. See page 3 for a full report on the SACP’s opinion.

Soek Laeveld Bulletin As mens kyk na onversorgde sypaadjies en gras in parke en oop erwe wat nie gesny word nie, dink jy Tzaneen ontwikkel en is aan die vooruitgang? Judging by the way Tzaneen’s sidewalks and pavements look, and by the long grass and neglected growth in parks and open stands, do you think Tzaneen is developing positively? Christine Mans  Hier by die Spur en verder met die pad aan lyk dit sleg. Dit is tyd dat iemand moet skoon maak, die pad lyk ook nie mooi op sypaadjies by die skougronde nie, hulle sal moet plan maak. By Frederikstraat lyk net so sleg. Andre du Preez Shame! Die gras groei so vinnig, hulle kan nie by bly nie! Ek wat baie rond ry, sien tog baie munisipale werkers wat langs die paaie werk! Antoinette Barwise  Ons slash op ons eie koste ons sypaadjie van die begin van die jaar af. Ai. Richard En Julene  Ons verkies om ons eie erf buite te versorg. Ek het een etenstyd tuis gekom net om te sien hoe die munisipale trekker en 11 grassnyers op ons pasgeplante gras staan en 2 besproeiingskoppe afgery is. Marie Miller Swak, droog en glad nie goed nie. Ek sal nie sê Tzaneen is aan die ontwikkel nie, maar eerder in ‘n agterstand, want baie gee nie om hoe dit lyk of watse aandag nodig is nie. My man het laasjaar langs die pad grass maintenance gedoen, dit het goed gelyk. Nou is dit weer net bosse. Die munisipaliteit het nie regtig self mense buite nie, dis subkontrakteurs wat dit vir hulle of ander maatskappye doen. Ons moet rigting kry as ons wil wys Tzaneen gaan vorentoe.

Kotie Oosthuyzen  Ek werk in Impalastraat en daar is so klein draaitjie waar die gras so hoog is, mens kan nie sien wat se voertuie kom aan nie. Indien die gras gesny was, sou mens kon sien. Dit kan gevaarlik wees, want daar is nog slegte plekke op die pad wat nog nie klaar reggemaak is nie, so mens moet maar ry waar die pad goed is. Rika Roos  Dit begin nou regtig naar lyk - lang gras, en slaggate ens. Die munisipaliteit kan duidelik nie die werk doen nie. Christo Coetzee Moet sê ons buurt se mense kyk almal self na hul sypaadjies. Dis mos lekker om by die huis te kom en alles is groen en mooi gesny. Maar die parkie aan die agterkant lyk beroerd. As iemand beeste of skape het, stel ek voor bring hulle soontoe, daar is genoeg kos vir sowat 50 beeste vir n week of twee. Erika Landman Tzaneen lyk baie beter as ander dorpe, maar wat my so onstel is die sypaadjies in die dorp is gepak met stalletjies, jy kan skaars daar loop of parkeer, want hulle pak alles orals en dis hulle wat so mors ook! Nicolette Roux  Hi, ek stem saam met Ericka, dis chaos op ‘n maandeinde in Tzaneen op die sypaadjies. Jy kan nie daar loop nie, hulle moet plan maak laat die smouse pad gee. Sheila Newby Grobbelaar  Can do with some makeup.

Die Bybel en ander bangmaakstories...

Vlieg praat met die Volk en krap waar dit jeuk...

Net soos, hopelik, ‘n paar ander ouens — waarskynlik ook enersdenkende andersdenkendes — wonder Vlieg ook soms oor die Groot Vraag en die Groot Antwoord. Dit het natuurlik nou niks te make met Frik Flora en die Vraag?, of Yolandi Vi$$er en Ninja se Antwoord nie. Vir hulle is Vlieg op die oomblik ‘n bietjie vies omdat hulle dink Lady Gaga is kommin en eerder saam met Celine Dion wil optree. Vlieg het hoë ontsag vir Lady Gaga en laat haar nie sommer deur enige pastorieflerrie beledig nie. Eerder die Groot Vraag en die Groot Antwoord oor die lewe, die heelal en alles. En terwyl Vlieg so wonder, wonder hy of hy reg wonder dat ons samelewing tans ‘n bietjie, of dalk eerder baie, wanaangepas voorkom en as Vlieg se waarneming korrek is, wat dan die moontlike oorsaak daarvan kan wees. En midde in hierdie gewonder verskyn die antwoord aan Vlieg, asof in ‘n visioen: Vrees! Inderdaad. Ons is bang, met vrees gevul, daarom dat ons so wanaangepas is. Behalwe Vlieg, natuurlik. Hy is bang vir niks en natuurlik heel goed aangepas, dankie. Met verdere dieper gewonder besef Vlieg toe dat vrees ‘n selfs dieper gewortelde instinktiewe emosie is wat vanaf die wieg tot die graf in ons vasgelê word.

Nie? Lees maar verder. As jy stout is, gaan die polisie jou kom vang! Vrees polisie. As jy nie stilsit nie gaan die dokter jou inspuit! Vrees dokter. As jy nie jou tande borsel nie gaan die tandarts jou tande trek! Vrees tandarts. As jy nie jou kos opeet nie, gaan jy nie poeding kry nie! Vrees poeding, vrouens in elk geval. Los uit die hond, hy gaan jou byt! Vrees hond. Wag tot jou pa by die huis kom! Vrees pa. As jy nie nou gaan slaap nie, gaan Kersvader nie kom nie! Vrees slaap. Weens dié gewaarwording, en vanweë die teoloë se hernude twis met die nuutste nuwe vertaling van die Bybel oor of dit nou Seun van God is met ‘n hoofletter of seun van God met ‘n kleinletter, wil Vlieg graag ‘n pleidooi lewer. Terwyl hulle nou besig is, wil hulle nie asseblief die woord vrees ook uit die Bybel uitskryf nie. Vlieg en ander enersdenkende andersdenk-endes weet miskien dat vrees meer as een betekenis kan hê, maar hul charismatiese vriende verstaan dit nie, en wil hulle steeds bangmaak met God. As hulle dalk die Godvresendheid en die vrees van God beter kan vertaal, sal almal, soos Vlieg, weet dat hulle nie vir die God van liefde hoef bang te wees nie.

Die mense hoor

Let wel: Hulle sê nie so nie! • Dit is in die belang van goeie Human Relations dat mens in Mosambiek nie van die dansvloer moet wegskram nie. Veral nie as die minister mens soek nie.... • Willie is nog hoopvol, maar Jurie sê daar’s nie ‘n manier dat hy peetpa gaan wees nie... • Verlede week se Oor-bydrae oor die Pajero wat in die teenoorgestelde rigting ry, het al wat Pajero-eienaar is laat wonder. Maar dit het mos verlede week duidelik daar gestaan dat dit ‘n Pajero-tjie is. Om dit duideliker te stel, dit is die tweedeur model... • Die Prokureursorde sal later nie weet

waar om te vat en waar om te los nie. Daar is skynbaar nog ‘n ondersoek aan ‘t kom, maar dit kan eers heelwat later wees: only in May or Judy or August, the people hear... • Toe raak die Boeredag amper Moeredag daar in die tent. Pieter se mampoer het ook nie brieke nie. Of hoe, Gerry en maters?... • Die Martellwater wat Dinsdagaand ‘n groot slagoffer by die dam geëis het, is glo uit ‘n koffiefles geskink en dus kon die manne nie die kleur so mooi sien nie.

Premier Mathale rebuked by Limpopo’s SACP More and more of Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale’s allies are turning against him, and he seems to become more isolated by the day. A senior politician — who for obvious reasons wouldn’t like to be identified — told the Bulletin that Mathale’s reshuffle of his cabinet is part of his last agonies. In political circles it is rumoured that Mathale will not see out the year as Premier of Limpopo. The South African Communist Party (SACP) in Limpopo has now also turned on Mathale and the party’s interim provincial secretary, Mr Gilbert Kganyago, said “the SACP has noted with dismay the pronouncements on the cabinet reshuffle by the provincial Premier, Mr Charlie Cassel Mathale”. “This was preceded by an equally problematic but silent reshuffling of chairpersons of different portfolio committees within the legislature two weeks ago, where all the comrades who were opposed to Mr Mathale’s re-election as the ANC Provincial Chairperson were removed from their portfolios and replaced by his loyalists. “This pattern of political purging surely had to culminate in the cabinet reshuffle. Contrary to the claims by the Premier that the reshuffle is meant to enhance service delivery, this is one act that is meant to entrench the tenderpreneurs who have been milking the public purse up to a point of bankruptcy that we find ourselves in,” he said. He added that “this is further intended to undermine the National Cabinet intervention in trying to stabilize the finances of the province and dealing effectively with corruption. “How else does one explain the redeployment, from one portfolio to another, of an MEC whose department is under administration and being investigated by law

enforcement agencies, if not to undermine the work done by the National Cabinet? “In the same breath, what is the rationale behind the removal of ANC NEC members — who have vast government experience after having served under the past two administrations — from the provincial cabinet, except that friends who will not resist the instructions to loot the state coffers had to be appointed, so that the tenderpreneurs could continue in the same old way of looting that led to a situation of total bankruptcy that the province finds itself in at the moment,” Kganyago said. He continued by saying “for this reason, the SACP wishes to reiterate its call for the National Government to place the entire Limpopo executive under administration and for Premier Charlie Cassel Mathale to step down. It is clear from this disruptive intervention that any little time and space that Premier Charlie Cassel Mathale can get will be utilized to further weaken the state in the province. We also call upon all the law enforcement agencies that are dealing with corruption in Limpopo to complete their task quickly so that all the culprits (corrupt elements) might be brought to book.” Kganyago said the SACP further calls for the de-tenderization of the state so that the state could on its own deliver services to the people. He said this is all the more urgent in the light of the massive infrastructure programme that has been announced by the President during his State of the Nation Address. “Certainly such massive infrastructure programmes in Limpopo will be used to enrich a small circle of tenderpreneurs that is connected to the leading figures within the state. These tenders will also be used to destabilize the movement, particularly in the build-up to all the national congresses of our structures this year,” he said.

Die stryd om die Amerikaanse kleinhandel-wêreldreus Walmart se oorname van Massmart is verby en Tzaneen is een van die plekke in die land wat hierby gaan baat. Lees volgende week eksklusief in die Bulletin waarmee Massmart by ons besig is.

Die trok het uit Georges Valley se rigting gekom. Die vermoede is dat die bestuurder aan die slaap geraak het. Hy is lig beseer.

DOODSBERIG As die regering voortgaan met die drakoniese wet om die vloei van inligting te beperk, sal die doods-klok vir die media lui en sal korrupsie hoogty vier. Wat doen jy om jou stem hieroor te laat hoor?

Kruger lures youth into the Lowveld bush In most people the thought of a career in Kruger National Park evokes a picture of Rangers in khaki and green uniforms... but seldom anything about other career opportunities in the park. This is why KNP in conjunction with the department of education decided to offer educational workshops to familiarise kids between Grades 10 & 11 with the park’s environmental affairs and the career opportunities. The initiative was launched in 2009 in the two provinces bordering the park. According to Bongiwe Nkosi, who deals with pupils studying tourism, “the idea of bringing the

pupils into the park is to expose them to the careers that are available.” “Many pupils don’t view the park as a place where they can find any jobs other than being a ranger. We want to change that concept and make an awareness of other career opportunities available,” she said. About 125 pupils from different schools in the Mopani district attended the workshop in groups of 25 per day for five days. The same was done in Mpumalanga. Apart from learning about the career paths in the park, pupils also had the opportunity to be taken out for a Sunset-drive where they learned about animals and their behaviour. Meanwhile, Solly Themba, the park’s community facilitator said with this initiative KNP aims to recruit more youngsters to work in the park. Asked why they didn’t invite Grade 12 pupils to be part of it as well, Themba said the Grade 12 pupils already know what career path they want to follow. “We believe that we stand a better chance of recruiting those that have not decided what they want to do after school. — Orlando Chauke

MDM strike called off The council of the Mopani District Municipality called off the two day strike that was embarked upon by the workers of the authority. The strike has been called off following an agreement between the council and organised labour, to put together a task team that will work to resolve all matters raised in the union’s memorandum within seven days. According to Mr Neil Shikwambana, a communications officer of the MD, workers delivered a memorandum of grievances to the mayor, complaining

among many other things about discrepancies in post levels and notches, inadequate work resources, non-payment of overtime and a policy review. He added that the demand that Mr Tim Maake, the municipal manager, be removed from his position, was not important and the workers should present facts on why they want him removed. The MDM’s council apologised to the community for any inconvenience as a result of the strike, especially the disruption of water provision and other key services.

Rest in peace — three small words that can do more damage than good, especially if used when the person has not passed on. This is what happened recently to Mr Daan Mills, the retired chief traffic officer of Modjadjiskloof. Somewhere along the line somebody overheard that he had passed on and the rumour spread like wild fire — resulting in his wife

getting a huge number of condolences sent to her. The truth of the matter is that Mills has been very ill the past twelve months but he is doing fine now; recovery is slow but it is happening and the doctors are pleased with his current state of health. The Mills couple now reside in Swartruggens in the North West Province, and they are happy there.

Sy gaan vanjaar verder met haar studies vir ‘n B Tech-graad in Musikale Teater aan die TUT. Sy was verlede jaar ook deel van die rolbesetting van Esther — the musical. Haar agent skryf die volgende oor haar: “Myra Jaqueline Visser hails from the small town of Tzaneen in Limpopo, but what she offers is anything but small. Her unique personality, loads of energy, enthusiasm, positive attitude combined with creativity, spontaneity, inner and outer beauty and hunger for the stage will blow you away!

NG Kerk Letsitele

Die Boeredag

Die inisieerders van die Boeredag langs die Letabarivier naby Die Eiland verdien ‘n klop op die skouer vir ‘n gesonde en sinvolle inisiatief tot voordeel van landbou. Vanjaar is dit vir die tweede keer aangebied en danksy die goeie werk deur die komitee wat dit gereël het, kan met stelligheid voorspel word dat dit volgende jaar weer groter en beter gaan wees (soos vanjaar goter en beter was as verlede jaar se eerste aanbieding). Trouens, dié dag is stewig op pad om ‘n mini-Nampo te word en dit sal nie vergesog wees om te voorspel dat dit nie lank gaan neem voordat dit ‘n tweedag-byeenkoms word nie. Met die ATKV-oord ‘n klipgooi van Montrose af, waar die Boeredag aangebied word, kan verblyf vir uitstallers relatief maklik gereël word. Vir verblyf is Tarentaalrand, Letsitele en selfs Tzaneen nie te ver nie. Met ‘n geringe uitbreiding van die program en goeie en tydige bemarking kan ‘n program maklik oor twee dae aangebied word. Die ligging is ideaal. Die plaasatmosfeer, die rustigheid van die rivier (met sy seekoeie), die baie bome vir skaduwee, die lekker toegangsroete en die goeie plaaspad na die terrein bied die res van wat nodig is om ‘n groot groep boere lekker te laat kuier. Voeg hierby dat die boere groot baat by uitstallings en demonstrasies van wat vir boere belangrik is, en hier is ‘n wenresep.

Khutso, ek het ook behoort Gustav Triegaardt skryf per e-pos: Aangesien dit die vyftigste herdenking van ons matriekgroep op Merensky is hierdie jaar, was dit met nostalgie en wonderlike herinneringe dat ek Khutso Klets gelees het. Ons het behoorlik Engels geleer by me Van der Steen en mnr Van der Dool, Afrikaans lief gekry by mnr Els. In die koshuis het ons vars avo’s, vrugte, groente en melk van ons plaasskool gekry. Die tannies in die kombuis het self brood gebak vir die koshuis. Die skoolsuster, ek dink haar van was De Loor, het met ‘n kwaai gesig maar liefdevolle oë en hande ons wonde, siektes en harte versorg. Ons het dorp toe “geslip” om te gaan fliek in Gerber’s Cinema en terug geloop in die lig van mnr Assie Johannes se DKW se ligte. (Ou Duiwelskloof pad, huidig deur die dam.) Ons het elke Saterdagaand volkspele gehad of bloekombome gaan ry in die plantasie. En goed gevry. Ons is met die trein vanaf Mannikstasie na sportbyeenkomste toe. Ons het van die huidige pawiljoene gebou en kadetkompetisies gewen. Onder leiding van mnr Jansen en toe mnr Mitchell en ‘n span van die beste onderwysers is ons met liefde getug (ses van die bestes) en deeglik voorberei vir die lewe. Daarom kan ek met trots soos Khutso sê: ék het behoort. Dankie Merensky!

No fountain

Luke Perkins, DA Councillor, Tzaneen, writes: The foun-

vaar. Die Bulletin het sedert ons ontstaan die belaglike “leerder” geïgnoreer en by leerling gehou; soos ons opvoeder vermy en steeds leerkrag of onderwyser gebruik. Daar is verskeie ander voorbeelde. Vireers is dit genoeg om ons standpunt te steun, dat ons nie agter ‘n regering moet aan hol wat verspotte terme en woorde uitdink, in plaas van om sinvol en verantwoordelik te regeer nie.

Letters • Briewe tain outside Tzaneen Municipality has been out of order for some time now. It is often used as a rubbish bin, with plastic and paper floating around in the inch of water left in the fountain. In Council I have asked the question “when will this be fixed?” and “are the repairs budgeted for?”. I was told it is budgeted for, and would be fixed by the end of February 2012. However, nothing has been done (March 16, 2012). It is still not working and I will have to re-ask these questions. I have pointed out to the Council that this reflects on their efficiency — if they cannot fix their own fountain outside their own building, how can they be expected to fix things miles away, in Lenyenye or Nkowankowa? I cannot imagine this broken fountain inspires confidence in anyone.

Die afgelope tyd het daar `n interessante boek verskyn by Tafelberg uitgewers: GOD? Gesprekke oor die oorsprong en uiteinde van alles. In die boek voer Frits Gaum gesprek met bekende gelowiges en George Claassen met bekende persone wat die kerk vaarwel geroep het en sommige ook uitgesproke ateïste is. Twee dinge wat my opgeval het in die gesprekke met mense wat die kerk verlaat het, is die ervaring van die mense dat `n mens in die kerk nie kritiese vrae mag vra nie en die persepsie dat die kerk nie oop is vir die bevindinge van die natuurwetenskap nie. Hoe kan dit wees dat `n mens in die kerk nie kritiese vrae mag vra nie? Die feit dat die mens die vermoë het om vrae te vra en logies te dink is tog seker omdat ons, soos ons in die kerk sou sê, geskape is na die beeld van God. Om gelowig te wees veronderstel tog seker dat jy met jou hele menswees oop is voor God en jou hele self aan God gee as offer. Dit word seker `n probleem as jou vrae nie gebalanseer word met `n verwondering voor God en die skepping nie. Om soos `n kind te glo beteken nie dat jy nie vrae mag stel oor God en die geloof nie, maar beteken dat jy jou lewe aan God toevertrou soos `n kind. En die bevindinge van die natuurwetenskap? Elke nuwe ontdekking behoort ons net meer in verwondering te bring voor die grootsheid van God en die skepping. Christene moet versigtig wees om nie voortdurend die geskiedenis te herhaal toe die kerk vir Galileo Galilei gesê het hy is verkeerd met sy teorie dat die aarde om die son draai nie, net omdat die Bybel sê die aarde is die middelpunt van die skepping. Mooi naweek!

all laws and by-laws relating to traffic enforcement. The municipality also confirmed that there are 13 Kudu lawn mowers and only 3 are in working condition! Only 2 of the 5 brush cutters are operation, and the 3 Kudu lawn mowers and 2 brush cutters cannot be repaired. Three bush cutters and the slasher tractor are under repair. On the DA’s question if grass that grows in cracks widens the cracks and lead to water ingress under the road surface that causes potholes in the end. The DA learnt that photos as evidence are very important. The motion regarding the problem about hawkers in Ward 15 that was handed in by the DA did not appear in the Agenda of the Council meeting. This is in contradiction to Section 6 of the Rules of Order. The DA did demand to read the motion to council The DA resolves that Greater Tzaneen Municipality implements the Hawkers Research and Feasibility Study that was adopted by Council, but never implemented, it be included in the Integrated Development Plan and control measures applied and put in place. It is a serious health hazard when hawkers use the back of the Post Office and allies as toilet facilities. The pollution of the Letaba River at the taxi rank also formed part of the motion. There will be a Ward 15 Community meeting at the Civic Centre at 18:00 on Thursday, 29 March. The drug problem, Claude Wheatley project, hawkers and IDP will be part of the agenda. I can be contacted at 079 872 5012.

New law to police second-hand goods takes effect on 1 April

The long-awaited Second-Hand Goods Act will come into effect on April 1. Replying to a parliamentary question, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said the act would ensure more thieves and buyers of stolen goods are arrested and convicted. “Any person who buys stolen goods is as guilty as the person who stole the goods, and harsher sentences will apply to both the buyer and the thief,” he said. “I have instructed the SA Police Service management to ensure that the Second-Hand Goods Act, which seeks to regulate second-hand goods dealers and recyclers and will be an important tool in the effort to clamp down on stolen good, is implemented by April this year.” As part of the first phase of implementation, certain section of the act came into effect on December 13 and January 16. These sections provided for, among others, accreditating to almost R1,5 million. tion of second-hand goods dealers’ associations and regAmong the issues the report ulated “suspicious transactions”, as well as the possesraises is lack of documentary sion, acquisition and disposal of controlled metal cable, evidence for a R166 000 cheque for example, copper. for electrical services that was signed before an invoice was If the Tzaneen comeven submitted. munity don’t support The same shortfalls were raised the Community Policin a R249 000 transaction invol- ing Forum (CPF), they ving the same private company. shouldn’t expect problems to be resolved, warned CPF chairThe report mentions 33 trans- man Uwe Kroh at last week’s poorly attended meeting. actions with irregularities that Tzaneen’s new SAPS station commander, Brig Diana were signed off while Mah- Mashele, attended the meeting, but some of her sector anyele was the acting CEO. commanders were also absent and certain questions She could not offer explanations could not be answered. for at least eleven of the transacThe main issue on the agenda was the closing of liquor tions, while the majority of re- outlets.

Gaal’s board dissolved Following the suspension of Polokwane International Airport (PIA) CEO, Thulani Zulu, the board of its holding company, Gateway Airport Authority Limited (Gaal), has also been dissolved. A scathing forensic investigation report seems to be the main reason for the move. The report raises administrative blunders dating back to 2009 and implicates among others, PIA Chief Financial Officer Shirley Mahanyele in a list of irregularities. She is also the former acting CEO and features prominently in the report, being pointed out in several red flags as a signatory in at least 33 transactions amoun-

A national structure has also been established to deal with the control of second-hand goods. Among other things, the act requires all dealers in secondhand goods to report to the police all suspicious transactions where the seller attempts to provide false particulars, or where the goods are suspected to be stolen or tampered with. Second-hand goods dealers and pawnbrokers will therefore not only have to take reasonable steps to ensure that they do not buy stolen goods or goods that have been tampered with, but also be careful from whom they buy goods. If an unscrupulous dealer is found guilty, a court can impose a prison sentence of u to ten years. Mthethwa said people dealing in or in possession of non-ferrous (controlled metal) cable with a burnt cover are committing an offence, unless they can provide the police with a reasonable explanation for the burnt cover. “This offence too gives the court the power to sentence copper thieves and unscrupulous scrap dealers to imprisonment for a period of ten years. We therefore believe this legislation will assist in combating both copper and property crimes,” Mthethwa said. — Sapa

CPF is not supported

three outlets have sofar been closed. He encouraged the community to notify the police if they experience problems with liquor outlets. The Flora Park community complained about a man, one Scarface, who was granted bail whilst more counts of housebreaking against him are being investigated. Scarface is now on the run. Mashelee said she would look into the matter and asked the CPF committee to write a letter to the magistrate, and ask for an explanation. The meeting also discussed the problem of prostitutes in Tzaneen, the growing problem of theft of avocados and problems with theft and robbery in Bolobedu.

Stanford Lake College held their annual Cancer Sprayathon Civvies Day. The pupils paid R5 for being in their normal afterschool-wear and had noisy fun spraying each other’s hair in a variety of vibrant colours. The teachers also joined in getting into the right spirit. The money that was raised will go towards cancer research and support.

LINKS: Monika Marais en Fiela Nel, leerlinge van onderskeidelik die Hoërskool Ben Vorster en die Hoërskool Merensky, is ‘n gedugte gr 12-duet-paar wat al sedert 2010 gereeld saam optree. “Fiela is die meesterbrein wanneer dit by verwerkings kom; hy verstaan my en my stem,” vertel die talentvolle sangeres Monika. Fiela is tans besig met sy gr 8-klaviereksamen en die talentvolle Plasie dink daaraan om sy klavierliefde as loopbaan te ontwikkel. Monika wil ook graag haar sang verder te neem op tersiêre vlak. Die duo tree gereeld by troues op, en Fiela se musikale veelsydigheid laat hom toe om ook klassieke of kontemporêre stukke op trekklavier, pypkorrel of kitaar te vertolk.

‘n Groep leerlinge van die Hoërskool Ben Vorster het hul pad oopgesing, -gedans en -gedraai na die SA kampioenskappe vir die uitvoerende kunste. Ilne Myburgh (modelwerk), Anne van Tonder (sang) en Hanco van der Merwe (sang), asook Rachelle Strydom (modelwerk) wat nie vir die foto beskikbaar was nie, is deur na die eindronde van die SA’s. Die SA-span sal dan gekies word, om aan die wêreldkampioenskappe in die VSA deel te neem.

BO: Ruan Groenewald (spiesgooi), Dalmari Ackermann (spiesgooi) en Noko Malatji (verspring & hekkies) is vir Limpopo se atletiekspan gekies, wat in Durban aan die SA kampioenskappe gaan deelneem.

Khutso Klets Spieëltjie, sê tog “Spieëltjie, spieëltjie, sê vir my: Hoe sien ander mense my? Sien hulle ook die beeld wat ék soggens kry?” Ek het die liedjie al ‘n duisend keer gehoor, maar ek is gewoonlik so diep in die groove dat ek nie regtig oor die boodskap daarvan dink nie. Hoe sien ander mense my? Erken dit: jy het dit ook al vir jouself gevra.Ander mense se menings is die hoofmotiveerder vir ons keuses. Wanneer jy ‘n nuwe uitrusting wil koop, vra jy eers vir jou vriende wat hulle daarvan dink. ”Hoe lyk ek?”, is ‘n vraag wat ons gereeld hoor en vir party mense is ander se dunk oor hulle só belangrik dat hulle te bang is om ‘n ongewilde besluit te neem. Ander se menings word so belangrik dat dit jou vryheid beperk; jy plaas jouself in ‘n boks en naderhand glo jy die wêreld se woorde so dat jy dit vir jouself begin sê: ”Ek is vet. Ek kan nie wiskunde doen nie! Ek is nie mooi genoeg vir hom nie. Hulle sal my nooit vir daardie span kies nie... Leuens! Haal diep asem en blaas al die

mure van onsekerheid om jou weg. Die wêreld kan nie vir jou sê wie jy ís nie, want jy kíés om te wees wie jy wil wees. Ja! Hou op om joueself te veroordeel, want hoe meer jy dit doen, hoe meer word jy die persoon wat jy nie wil wees nie. Ander mense kan jou nie verander in iemand wat jy nie wil wees nie. Ander se menings oor jou het eintlik niks met jou te doen nie, want dit sê meer oor húl karaktertrekke as oor joune. Jy het ook jou eie menings oor die mense om jou. Maak daardie menings regtig ‘n verskil in hul lewens? Nee. So hoekom gee jy soveel krag aan húlle? Neem die krag terug en ontwikkel ‘n positiewe denkwyse deur jouself eerder só te ondervra: ”Hoe voel ek?” in plaas van “hoe lyk ek?” Hoe gaan dit my raak?” in stede van “wat gaan hulle daaroor dink?” “Is dit goed vir my” in plaas van “almal doen dit”, want jy moet beheer neem oor jou geluk. Onthou, hoe jy jouself sien en oor jouself dink, is die belangrikste.

Even though a fabulous bed and a colourful bedspread or curtains go a long way to making a bedroom comfortable, you’ll still find yourself counting sheep on occasion. Here are five tips to help get rid of distractions and make you drift off to dreamland more easily. 1. Turn off the television. The flickering blue light of the television may lull you to sleep, but the lights and

sounds stimulate your brain to be awake, meaning you don’t really ‘switch off’. If there has to be a television in the room, try to keep it in a stylish unit with doors or cover it with a nice cloth when it’s off so that it does not become the focal point in the room. 2. Tidy up before you go to bed.

If your room is cluttered, it will keep distracting you until you get up and tidy it, making your sleep stressed and fitful. Rather take a few minutes before bedtime to tidy up loose items around the room. The key is to keep your wardrobe and closet organised to minimise the time needed to put everything neatly back in

place. 3. Cozy up for the night. Open areas are distracting in the bedroom regardless of their neatness, so close drawers and close doors. Closed blinds and curtains keep the room dark en creates a cozy feel that stimulates sleep. 4. Relax. Once you’ve finished your reading and switched off the light, relax. Slow down your breathing and breathe evenly through your nose. Tighten and then relax your muscles starting from your toes and working upward. 5. Empty your mind. Sometimes falling asleep is hard because the next day’s “to do” list is running through your head. Or you wake up on the middle of the night and

frantically look for a pen and paper to write something down before you forget. Keep a small notebook on your night table and write the task or to do list down and let it go until morning. This will ensure that you will not forget something important and your mind will relax.

Druppel vir DRUPPEL ‘n Paar maklike waterbesparingplanne om die omgewing te help en waterrekenings te krimp. • ‘n Lekkende kraan kan tot 90 liter ‘n week mors. Gaan jou krane na. • ‘n Oop kraan terwyl jy tande borsel kan tot 9 liter per minuut mors. Spoel eerder jou mond met ‘n glasie water uit • Wanneer jy ‘n eier kook, hou die water vir huisplante. Daar word voedsame stowwe deur die eierdop vrygestel. • Om elke dag vinnig te stort in plaas van te bad, gebruik slegs ‘n derde van die water en bespaar tot 400 liter per week. • Wanneer water gekook word, kook net soveel as wat jy nodig het. Dit bespaar ook elektrisiteit. • In streke waar daar ‘n hoë reënvalsyfer is, is dit ‘n goeie idee om ‘n tenk te kry wat reënwater opvang. • Tuinmakers moet let op watter tipe plante hulle koop. Kry eerder plante wat minder water gebruik en gebruik klippies, gruis, rotse en bankies om die tuin te versier.

• Vervang ou toiletbakke. Toilette wat na 1993 vervaardig is gebruik minder water wanneer dit spoel. • Sproeiers kan baie water mors, aangesien dit ‘n wye area van die tuin dek en vinnig die tuin sorgvuldig kan natmaak. ‘n Sproeier se watergebruik in ‘n uur kan gelykstaande aan ‘n gesin van vier se waterbruik in ‘n dag wees. • Besproei die tuin tydens die koelste tyd van die dag, om verdamping te verminder. • Gebruik die vuil water van die vistenk, om plante binne die huis skoon te maak. Die water is ryk in stikstof en fosfor wat in kunsmis gebruik word.

‘n Lekkende kraan kan tot 90 liter ‘n week mors. Gaan jou krane na.
