Vlieg wou nog altyd graag Spanje toe gaan. Dit moet ‘n belewenis wees om al die kultuur te ervaar, die romantiese taal, die blasvellige meisies en natuurlik die paella. Maar met die maaiers en papies wat geen ontsag het vir hul ouers se beperkte begroting nie, sal dit maar broekskeur gaan om binnekort die buiteland verder as Vic Valle te ervaar. Vlieg het nogal familie ook in Spanje. Vlieg is nie seker of daardie neef van hom so baie kinders het omdat hy ‘n Katoliek is, en of dit iets met sy koerasie te doen het nie. Sy naam is Espanol Mosca, oftewel: Spanish Fly! Maar Vlieg hoor ‘n mens hoef nie so ver te gaan om ‘n bietjie Spaanse kultuur te beleef nie. As jy verlede Donderdag en Vrydag hier in die dorp was sou jy blykbaar kon sweer jy is in Pamplona. Daar word vertel hier het ‘n bul deur die dorp gestorm en probeer om alles en almal in sy pad te gaffel. Al wat leef moes naarstigtelik padgee, voordat hulle dalk ‘n horing êrens kry

waar dit seermaak. Gelukkig was daar nie enige noodgevalle as gevolg van hierdie bullopie nie, net ‘n telefoonlyn of twee het in die slag gebly. Dit sou sleg gewees het as iemand ‘n ambulans nodig gehad het en nie kon deurkom nie. Vlieg verstaan die korrekte Afrikaans vir die “Running of the Bulls” wat jaarliks in Pamplona gehou word, is ‘n bullopie. Wat die bulle wat so storm natuurlik nie weet nie, is waar die tradisie ontstaan het. Voormelde bulle is vanmelewe deur die strate van Pamplona gelei van waar hulle oornag het (oornag is amper mos maar soos niksdoen), tot in die arena waar die bulgeveg plaasgevind het en hulle noodwendig dan, in die openbaar tot die skare se vermaak, aan die einde van die bulgeveg noodlottig gewond is. Hierdie uiteinde moet seker maar ‘n slag vir so ‘n bul se ego wees. En Vlieg wonder altyd of die bulle enigsins seerkry, en of dit seerder maak as die waarheid!

The Magoebaskloof Canopy Tours suffered a minor setback when a fire consumed their washing room and part of a store room at their premises in Georges Valley. The fire started at about 08:00 on a Sunday morning, but was luckily detected by passers by and staff members that live on the premises. Most of the equipment was salvaged from the fire and the fire brigade was alerted. The fire was contained to one room, but some of the equipment in adjacent rooms also suffered damages. It is suspected that the fire was caused by an electrical fault, but it will be referred to the insurance company for investigation. The business will carry on without any disruptions. The washroom suffered most of the damage in the fire. Photos: Jean Aucamp

Disturbed MM pledges help Tzaneen’s streets will be cleaned and it will be done as soon as absolutely possible. So said GTM municipal manager Constance Mametja on Wednesday. She took a drive throught the town, to assess the disruption caused by striking SAMWU cleaners. The MM said the workers were on a no work, no pay strike. “We will use the money deducted from their pay to hire private contractors to clean up the streets,” a

clearly disturbedMametja said. She confirmed that the majority of SAMWU members at the GTM were working and that a relatively small number of cleaners were guilty of the undisciplined conduct. She appealed to the business community in the CBD to keep their refuse bins inside their premises until it could be collected, so as to prevent the unorderly workers of using it to cause a mess in the streets.

Dit is genoeg om enige beskaafde mense siek te maak... ‘n Renoster koei en haar kalfie se karkasse lê in die veld op ‘n plaas naby Mokopane. Die twee is vermoedelik Donderdagaand geskiet. Drie weke gelede is twee renosters ook daar geskiet en een kalf is toe wees gelaat. Intussen het ‘n ander koei op die plaas die wesie aangeneem en saam met haar eie kalf laat drink, maar nou het die driestuks spoorloos verdwyn. — LiN Nuus; Noordelike Nuus

Even a slaughtered goat was used to mess up the main entrance to the Greater Tzaneen Municipality’s offices on Tuesday and Wednesday. The mess in front of the building and the bad smell kept people from the building. The municipal manager, Ms Constance Mametja, said this will affect the GTM’s cash flow, since people avoided the building and wouldn’t come in to pay their municipal accounts.

Bulletin vra: Die strate in Tzaneen lyk tans baie sleg. Wie gaan dit opruim? Wat sê jy?

Morris Fox jr Dis belaglik! Die mense kla so baie omdat daar nie werk in SA is nie, maar sodra hulle werk kry, dan staak hulle! Rodney Sabatier: Hoekom kan ons muni nie ’n interdik teen hulle kry soos Nelspruit nie? Lynette Bekker Marais Mense moet maniere leer en respek begin betoon! Hulle moet besef dat om te werk ’n VOORREG is en nie ’n reg nie!! Marise Rademan Ek verstaan nie hoekom moet ons boet omdat hulle ongelukkig is nie. Ergste van als is sodra hulle hul sin gekry het, moet hulle soos ’n klomp kinders weer opruim.

The stubborn sangoma who has been residing on the Letaba River’s bank in Tzaneen for the past couple of years, was ordered by the court to vacate “his” premises (and fined R1 500 for illegal occupation) about ten days ago. However, he ignored the eviction order and casually moved back. In the early hours of Wednesday about fifteen police officers, accompanied by Municipal Manager Constance Mametja, swiftly moved in to remove him. They had a sniffer dog to check for drugs and after nothing had been found, his structure was again burnt down. Will it be final this time? Mametja says “Yes — we will not tolerate unruliness”.

Tzaneen se private ambulansdiens is wel Tzaneen se private ambulansdiens — wat enkele maande gelede uit die gemeenskap

as ‘n gemeenskapsprojek gebore is, toe die Zambi Ambulansdiens tot stilstand gekom het — is volstoom aan die gang. Gerugte dat die diens ontbind is of gaan word, nadat mnr Marlan Heeres en sy vrou Debra bedank het, is Woensdag deur dr Ig van Rensburg, die voorsitter van die Tzaneen Ambulansdiens (TAS) ontken. Dié Art 21-maatskappy (‘n maatskappy sonder winsbejag) is gevestig en gaan ongestoord voort. Van Rensburg sê die bedanking van die Heeresse was nie totaal onverwags nie. “Para-medici met hul kwalifikasies is nie volop nie, veral nie in die platteland nie, maar ons is gelukkig om ander gekwalifiseerde personeel te hê. “ Die diens gaan dus voort, sonder dat daar ‘n krisis is.” Die direksie is tans besig met verdere onderhoude, maar mnr Hannes Potgieter, wat dieselfde hoë ALS-kwalifikasie (Advanced Life Support) as Heeres het, is reeds in ons diens en sal sy kant bring. Nog gekwalifiseerde para-medici is reeds dié week aangestel en verdere aanstellings

sal eersdaags volg, sê Van Rensburg. Die een ambulans wat hoofsaaklik in Phalaborwa diens doen en onlangs in ‘n ongeluk by Gravelotte beskadig is, behoort voor die naweek weer in gebruik te wees. Met die ambulans wat in Tzaneen werk is daar geen fout nie. ER24, ‘n filiaal van Mediclinic, het in elk geval ook ‘n ten volle toegeruste ambulans op bystand om in Tzaneen te help, as dit nodig sou wees. Van Rensburg sê daar is nog soms kontantvloeidruk, maar die nuwe diens word versigtig bestuur en die geldsake word daagliks gemonitor. “Dit is die gemeenskap se eiendom en daarom gebruik ons kundige professionele mense — ouditeurs en prokureurs — om te help sorg dat sake reg loop en die maatskappy verantwoordelik en volgens wetsvereistes bedryf en bestuur word. Daar was ’n kort onderbreking in TAS se telefoondiens, maar dit is herstel en die ops-kamer by Northern Security is ten volle in werking. Van Rensburg sê “die TAS is in goeie hande en die gemeenskap hoef nie te twyfel oor die voortbestaan van die diens nie”.

Verlede week het ons aangekondig dat ons vandag verder sou berig oor geld vir water wat weggesypel het, nog ‘n bedrogspul by die GTM, fluisterpraatjies oor probleme by Mopani se rampbeheersentrum in Tzaneen en ‘n interessante begroting wat ons bekom het. In elk van die vier onderwerpe het ons verdere inligting bekom, wat ons nou eers nagaan en daarom sal ons dan volgende week verder hieroor berig (mits nie nog nuwe inligting uitborrel nie).

Nie hier Jeug-groep besoek Tzaneen baklei Me Cecile Smit, die bestuurder van die Bosveld Lapa buite Tzaneen, het die week bevestig dat die twee verdagtes wat vir die aanranding op adj-off Rudie Barwise gesoek word, die aand van die beweerde aanranding wel daar gekuier het. Sy sê die twee het moeilikheid gemaak en sy het hulle versoek om die perseel te verlaat. Hulle het egter nie daar baklei nie. Sy sê die twee het nie teruggekom nie en sy het die eerste keer van die beweerde aanranding gehoor toe die polisie haar ondervra het. Smit sê ook die foto van die verdagtes wat op Facebook verskyn het, is nie by Bosveld Lapa geneem nie.

13th FLOOR, ‘n uitvoerende kunste bediening, is besig met ‘n geldinsameling vir ‘n uitreik na Engeland in November, met die doel om hul internasionale bediening te vergroot. Hulle sal Woensdag en Donderdag in Tzaneen wees.

Hulle hou Donderdagaand ‘n Jeugaand en nooi die jeug om dit by te woon. Dit sal in die NG Kerk Wolkberg gehou word en begin om 18:00. Toegang is gratis en verniet en daar sal ook ietsie te koop wees. Die jeug is nie

hul enigste teiken nie en daar is ook Donderdagoggend ‘n Lente Sakeontbyt tussen 07:00 en 08:00 by NG Kerk Tzaneen. Kaartjies by ds Adriaan van Tonder by 083 408 0939 teen R50/p. Navra: Juliette Simpson by 083 272 6892.

Road to baobab is bad The state of the road leading to the largest baobab in the world better known as the Sunland Baobab, has been in question for a while now. The Greater Letaba Municipality’s spokesperson, Ms Lovers Sibanda, said that the road was not under their supervision and she could not say what its maintenance entailed. She said the road was being administered by Limpopo’s de-

partment of roads and transport. She said the management of the Sunland Baobab should write a report to the GLM about the condition of the road. If the GLM can’t budget for the maintenance of the road, they would refer the matter to the Mopani District Municipality and the department of roads and transport. Sibanda said the Sunland Baobab tree was good for tourism and the road needed be fixed.

Exclusive coffee from Tzaneen

Tzaneen’s coffee coinnoisseurs can set their horizons on a new brand of Arabica in the market called Crown — grown, roasted and ground only a few kilometres from town! It is the exclusive product of Alôn in the slopes of Modjadjiskloof, where cultivation started at a very small scale a few years ago and has grown to a yield of more that two tonnes per season. Farmer Pieter Nel and his brother-in-law, Gad Ben-Avi, discovered offsprings of coffee trees in a valley on the farm eight years ago and were astonished by the healthy appearance of the plants. They were remnants of a coffee plantation which existed many years ago. Nel planted hundred seedlings taken from the valley and it started growing as if in its natural habitat. The first berries appeared in its very first year and increased each season. He made an intense study of coffee farming since 2003 and applied his knowledge to establish a successful production unit. Ben-Avi is a coffee ghuru who worked and studied coffee roasting in several coffee producing countries in the world. He is responsible for the roasting and marketing of Crown coffee. The initial plan was to produce enough coffee for Alôn’s Yum Yum restaurant in Tzaneen, but the concern has grown to such an extent that they are able to supply to selective coffee shops in Johannesburg and Cape Town. The two men are fanatic about the coffee project. They concentrate on quality rather than quantity and each roasted bunch is tasted for its excellence. Alôn is one of four coffee farms in South Africa and the only one who grows the shrub higher than a thousand meters above sea level successfully. The other coffee farms are Beavers Creek in Port St Johns, Sabie Valley Coffee and Venter Coffee in Bushbuckridge.

The White Elephant of Modjadji...

Does R13m hotel have a future? The Modjajdi Hotel, a local government tourism project costing R13 million adjacent to the Modjadji Nature Reserve, is in a state of decay. It was completed six years ago but has never been opened to the public. The facility includes a number of chalets (the plan allowed for twenty), a mini conference centre, parking bays and a braai area. Construction started in 2006 but was delayed due to a dispute between the Modjadji Royal House and a senior member of the Balobedu Community Trust, Mr Mathole Motshekga, then Premier of Gauteng, over allegations of financial mismanagement. Chiefs descended from the Balobedu royal family were to receive the royalties from the hotel. They signed a transfer agreement putting the hotel under the curatorship of the Greater Letaba Municipality (GLM) until other disputes had been resolved. The hotel is now ostensibly under the management of the GLM. To honour a legacy The project was to honour the legacy of the late Rain Queen, Mokope Modjadji V. The Queen Modjadji V Hotel, as it was named, is situated at Lebjene Mountain, close to the Modjadji Royal Palace. It was officially declared open by deputy environmental affairs and tourism Minister Rejoice Mabudafhasi in April 2009. She said then that the hotel celebrated the culture, history and life of the Balobedu. She encouraged villagers to start their own home-stay accommodation, to develop a tourism route for Modjadji, since many tourists preferred “interacting with communities and learning their cultures”. Mr Joshua Matlou, then mayor of Modjadjiskloof (now mayor of the Mopani District Municipality), said at the ceremony that the lodge would

be managed by well-trained people consisting of mainly youth from within the municipal district. The hotel is accessed via a tar road leading past the entrance to the nature reserve. There is no sign to the hotel. The buildings show visible traces of deterioration. Thatch is falling off the roofs. Grass and weeds proliferate. Furniture is stacked inside the reception area. The decks of the chalets are collapsing and the windows are covered in newspaper. The pool deck is falling apart. A spiritual feeling Two recent visitors from Johannesburg said they were horrified at the state of neglect. “It would cost millions to get the resort habitable,” they said . “This is a wonderful location. Its not just the magnificent views but there is a spiritual feeling here. The hotel and the nature reserve could make this a unique attraction for overseas tourists.” He said the security guards on duty readily allowed them to inspect the premises and take photographs. When asked why the place had never been opened to visitors, they did not know. Nor could they say if and when it would be restored. Mr Mike Gardner, a professional tourism development consultant, said that this tourism project was planned and developed without proper market research, a feasibility study and a detailed business plan. The greatest tourist attraction “The public and the local government’s accounting officers must be made aware of this ‘white elephant’. It is just unacceptable that millions have been spent but the project has never opened to the public.” According to the GLM’s Integrated Development Plan (IDP) of 2011/12, “the development of the tourism sector is to a large degree dependent

on the existing natural, cultural and heritage assets of any one place which can be utilised and developed into interesting attractions which can draw tourists to the area. In Greater Letaba Municipality, the greatest tourism asset which can serve as an anchor attraction to increase tourist flows to the area, is the Modjadji Nature Reserve and the legend of the Rain Queen”. The IDP stated that Modjadji would be developed as a tourist icon. “This programme involves the upgrading of visitor facilities in the Reserve, with the main focus being on the development of a successful and entertaining Interpretation Centre which can effectively and powerfully convey the history of the Cycads and the surrounding peoples, as well as the story of the succession of Rain Queens”. Will soon be operating In the mean time Mr Khorommbi Matibe, director for business development in the Limpopo wildlife resorts division, told our Beaunice Mnisi that the highly anticipated Modjadji Lodge will soon be under operation. He said they plan to start the tendering process again, to find some one who could invest in the lodge’s development and operation costs. Matibe said that their last tendering process was unsuccessful as the development of the lodge requires the successful bidder to develop a complex made up of a lodge, resort and reserve. He added that they were confident that the new tendering process would produce a suitable candidate. Ms Lovers Sibanda, spokesperson for the GLM, said they did not have the capacity to run the lodge and they entered into an eleven year agreement with Limpopo tourism and parks last year.

Council problems

“The chaos and confusion, particularly with regards to council meetings in the Greater Letaba Municipality has become a great concern,” says DA councillor Matie Willemse. “It becomes apparent that the council is going to great lengths to ensure that the opposition representatives do not get the opportunity to prepare arguments or to caucus on matters prior to council meetings. “We are given only one or two days’ notice of meetings and we are only receiving the agenda’s for meetings on the day of the meeting. It is absurd,” said Willemse. “There has even been an instance where we were notified that a council meeting will take place at 16:00, and when we arrived, we discovered that the meeting had in fact begun at 15:00. “Time and time again I have raised my hand in meetings to ask a question or to make a comment, and time and time again I am overlooked and not given the opportunity to state my case. “I am now going to attend the meeting with a white flag and will stand and wave it in order to get the attention of the speaker. If this continues, we are going to declare meetings unconstitutional and take the matter to a higher level. “We are elected to monitor all activities within the council and to report on matters of concern,” Willemse said.

Media het ook regte Twee weke voor die Albatross-vliegramp het die Mopani Distriksmunisipaliteit (MDM) se kommunikasiehoof met ons gepraat oor haar plan om ‘n slypskool met die media aan te bied, sodat kommunikasie tussen plaaslike rolspelers opgeskerp kan word. Ons het ons volste samewerking en ondersteuning aangebied, want die gebrekkige begrip by mense en instansies — van kerke en skole tot by korporasies en regerings — vir die werking van die media is bra skraal. Die vliegramp het opnuut bevestig dat hopeloos te veel mense dink joernaliste is lieplappers wat deur dese en gene verwilder kan word. Joernaliste het regte om hul werk te doen en dit word selfs in ‘n staande order van die SA Polisiediens verskans. Want ons is nie nuuskierige agies wat inligting vir ons eie opwinding insamel nie. Ons samel feite van nuusgebeure in, om dit aan die groot publiek deur te gee.

Vat hande Anza van Vuuren, DA Raadslid, Tzaneen, skryf: Swart Sondag het nie net die plaaslike gemeenskap nie, maar die internasionale gemeenskap met onmeetbare skok vervul. ‘n Week daarna rou ons steeds saam met die skare by die Randse lughawe. Langs hierdie weg dra die DA (Tzaneen) aan al die naasbestaandes en geliefdes van die oorledenes, ons diepe simpatie oor. Ons medelye kan nie jul smart verlig nie, ons glo egter dat Hy wat gegee en geneem het, ons gebede sal verhoor en dat Hy volgens Sy raadsplan berusting sal gee. Ons bring hulde aan al die instansies en individue wat, op welke wyse ookal, betrokke was by die gebeurlikheid. Dit verg knap opleiding en baie deernis om by rampe van sulke omvang diens te lewer. Ons salueer julle. Die DA in Tzaneen neem graag hande met almal wat die welsyn van ons gemeenskap op die hart dra.

Opkik – ons skuld Vriend van HBV skryf: Nou dat opkikkergebruik bevestig is in HBV het die klem verskuif na die drukgroepe. Die drukgroepe — ons — moet erken: Ons jeug se voortbestaan om te presteer word aangemoedig deur “ons”. Die jong seuns (en dogters) moet wen ten alle koste. Die kinders moet “ons” as grootmense trots maak deur te oorwin sodat ons kan spog. Die skool se naam moet ten alle koste op die volgende voorblad kan wees en die nederlaag van die opponent invryf. As ouer sien ek my kind tree “anders” op, my kind het broodnodige “uitgawes” en is kort van draad. Maar ek bly druk om hom die plek in die span te haal wat “ek”wil hê. My kind groei uitermatig en sit lyf aan waar dit saak maak, en ek bly trots op hom, steun hom en ondersteun hom daarin. Ek as ouer sal nie skroom om teen alle beginsels die golf van oorwinning te ry nie. My oë is gesluit vir die waarheid.

Die mense hoor • Almal ken die kinderverhaaltjie van Jakkals en Wolf en die bekende vraag: “En hoekom is ouma se ore so groot?”. Maar hier’s by ons ‘n oupa vir wie ook gevra kan word “en hoekom is

Let wel: hulle sê nie so nie!

oupa se ore so groot?” Hy kan dalk net antwoord “om my skelmpie beter te kan hoor, my kind”... • Die volk kan nie klaar gepraat kry oor die Prado nie. Hulle sê hy’s soos ‘n goëlkunstenaar. Sien jou hier, sien jou daar... darem steeds hoofsaaklik in Arborpark...

Die kind midde die stryd moet stry tot oorwinning vir die skool, gemeenskap, afrigter en ouer, die “eie ek”. Met die smag na oorwinning en om bo uit te kom val die versoeking van opkikkers so reg in die hand van die onskuldige kind. Die kind wat veronderstel was om deur dieselfde mense gelei te word na behoorlike volwassenheid is die grootmense se speelbal. Die wat gefaal het en dalk steeds faal moet hand diep in eie boesem steek, opstaan en ‘n verskil maak anders sit ons gemeenskap met opgekikte moeilikheid.

Baie dankie Familie van Fritz du Toit sê baie dankie: Eerstens dank aan ons Hemelse Vader wat ons elke dag dra en vashou in ons tyd van seer. Dan sê ons baie dankie vir almal wat ons onderstuen het met finansiële bydraes, kos, blomme, asook al die gebede, oproepe, sms’e en besoeke. Dankie vir almal se warm harte wat die seer van Fritz se heengaan saam met ons as familie dra. Name kan ons nie noem nie, daar is te veel. Nogmaals baie dankie aan almal.

Wat word benodig? Regina Ingram van Tzaneen skryf: Vandag wil ek namens die minderbevoorregtes van Tzaneen ‘n karaktereienskap van Flip van Rooyen met almal wat hom lief het en respekteer, deel. Vier jaar gelede het die bestuur van God’s Haven my genader om te help geld vind, want die woonplek vir bejaardes het dringend ‘n yskas en vrieskas benodig. Die publiek het voedsel verskaf, maar daar was nie ‘n yskas om die raklewe van die groente en vrugte te verleng nie. My hart (die Heilige Gees) wat diep binne my deur genade woon, lei my om die volgende berig te plaas: God’s Haven benodig ‘n groot yskas en vrieskas.

The next title of God I want to look at is “Elohim”. The first verse in the Bible in Genesis begins with “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. Therefore “Elohim” means creator or “The one who possesses all the divine powers”. In Genesis 2 we find that this “creator” takes on a more human attitude for He now creates a human being from dust and He refers to Himself as Jehovah Elohim or the Lord God. I think that if we as believers see this powerful God as a person who, because of His great love for us wants us to share in all that He has created. He even puts man in charge of His creation. Thus this is an unselfish God because of His ability to trust us with something so vast that we cannot comprehend the magnitude of it. He thus enters into a personal relationship with His human creation. In the New International Version of the Bible Jehovah which also translated ‘Yahweh’ means Lord, note that it is a capital initial, which distinguishes it from another Hebrew word ‘Adonai’ which also means Lord. The name Jehovah means actively present. God is seen as one who is faithful and keeps His promises. God by calling Himself by His personal name, shows us that He created beings who could and would reciprocate His love. He makes it personal. I believe that although many have said that we have evolved man was created by a divine act and did not merely evolve. But this is faith, faith in God. Faith cannot be correctly defined as something tangible. It is a belief in something or someone unseen. If we evolved why have we not become extinct as so many other creatures have? God Bless You All

Die Woensdag bel Flip van Rooyen my in my hoedanigheid as eiendomsagent om te verneem van verhu-ring. My vlees wil kortpad vat en ek het hom amper gevra vir ‘n donasie. Maar my hart, woonplek van die Heilige Gees keer: Moenie! Vertrou My, die Here jou God. Die berig verskyn die Donderdag. Eerste weldoeners is Chris en Melinda Opperman; het in hul motorhuis ‘n vrieskas — kry net ‘n bakkie en kom haal hom. Die Saterdag is my spoed en moed gebreek — geen ander oproep nie. Die Saterdagmiddag tree die God wat voorsien in en ‘n oproep met ‘n redelike amptelike stem is aan die woord. “Regina, het ek en jy nie Woensdag gesels nie? Hoekom moet ek in die koerant lees daar is ‘n behoefte? Regina, wat het julle nodig?” Ek het nie die moed om die bedrag te noem. Flip bied aan: “R3 000, R7 000, R10 000, R20 000 — wat benodig julle?” Dan die volgende woord (koning Dawid het dieselfde gesindheid in sy hart gehad): “Net die beste vir my God. Koop vir daardie oumense net die beste. Moenie minderwaardige toestelle kry nie, hulle gaan breek. Net die beste vir hulle!” Flip het my laat ooreenkom om nooit te beken en bekend te maak dat dit hy is wat dit gedoen het nie. Maar na ‘n berig wat hom in ‘n swak lig gestel het, het ek besluit die tyd het aangebreek om my gerespekteerde vriend se sagte omgee-hart met die gemeenskap te deel. Sy ou Moeder som hom die beste op. Onthou sy is bejaard, niks meer oor om te wen, soek nie die kollig of aalmoese nie. Haar pragtige woorde met ‘n kuiertjie by haar: “My arm kind (Flip) het nie ‘n bankrekening nie, want die stomme kind gee alles weg. Kom kyk my nuwe matte en kar. Kom kyk wat hy vir my gedoen het.”

Flip, jou moeder se woorde spreek boekdele. Jou familie en vriende wat jou waarlik ken, sê dankie vir die voorreg dat jy daardie gedeelte van jou hart met ons deel.

Bulletin

Tzaneen Museum – yet another neglected asset The Tzaneen museum was the subject of an indignant letter in the Bulletin last week. The question was asked: does the local community care so little about its cultural heritage? That question should be directed towards the executive committee of the Greater Tzaneen Municipality. The Integrated Development Plan for 2011/12 records that “the GTM has a museum but (it) is privatised to Curator Witt.” Further, it states that “the building is very small for the artefact (s) that (it) is holding. The building also needs major maintenance; it has lot(s) of cracks and is not safe for visitors and even the people working there.” The budget provides for a grant to the museum of some R33 000 per annum (unchanged from the previous year.) This is miniscule as it stands and does not cover the running costs. But what is alarming is that this small amount is not paid. No financial support from GTM Jürgen Witt confirms that the museum has not received any financial support from the municipality f or some years. This situation is also confirmed by the GTM director of community services. The situation is a delicate one. Some time back Jürgen Witt criticised the GTM for its lack of support. The details are unclear but this offended the executive committee and, as we understand it, they declined to receive any further reports from the museum. (Every department submits a monthly report of its activities, and Jürgen does likewise but maybe the report doesn’t reach the exco.) There appears to be a clash between politics and culture which is

sad since the former is transitory while culture is the lifeforce of any community. One of the best in SA So, no report, no funding. Leave aside for the moment the millions that are spent on parks and recreation, and consider the importance of the museum. It has been acclaimed by an international guide book as one of the best in South Africa. It has a unique collection of Lowveld Sotho and Tsonga artefacts, like pottery and contemporary sculptural woodcarvings by local artists. Some of the latter have had exhibitions overseas to their credit. Additional material like wooden masks, sculptural carvings, headrests etcetera, mainly from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, have been added to the holdings in order to trace possible cultural links with South Africa. Archaeological artefacts have also been collected but are not on display, because of lack of space. This prehistoric material does not only include stone implements, probably dating back up to 1,5 million years, but also copper ingots and early iron tools — like hoes — from later periods. Initially it was hoped that more research would be carried out in the varying fields that could have been of great importance to the earlier history of the local inhabitants, but due to the limited financial resources this was not to be continued and the generation of valuable informants have in the mean time passed away. The life & work of Jürgen Witt This has been the life work of a remarkable man who has traversed the Lowveld and beyond in his search for these early materials. Jürgen Witt, a member of the SA Archaeological Society for over 50 years, has worked with such giants in this field as Raymond Dart, Australian-born anthropologist, best known for his involvement in the 1924 discovery of the first fossil ever found of Australopithecus africanus, at Taung, and Phillip Tobias, paleontologist and Professor Emeritus at Wits, and one of the world’s leading authorities on the evolution of humankind. The museum has attracted interest far and wide. The visitors’ book records entries from Australia, Brazil, Japan, Marshall Islands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia and the United States. Students from local and overseas universi-

ties have come here to complete their doctorates, and some have gone on to become professors. Footprint, the well-known UK travel guide, commented thus: “Do not be deceived by the size of the building, this is one of the best museums in South Africa, and as such it deserves far greater recognition and resources… In our opinion you will not come across a finer collection in SA.” Better known internationally Jürgen has written articles about his collection and about local culture which have appeared in academic and museum publications in France and Germany. So the Tzaneen museum may be better known internationally than at home. Surely, the museum deserves better from the GTM. Jürgen, we know, can be “difficult”. And this can be understood since, after all, it is his collection. But he wants to make it available to the people of Tzaneen. So how can we overcome this “challenge”. Let us put our minds to resolving this impasse which is clearly in the interests of all concerned. Jürgen says he visualises a corporate sponsor who would buy the South African collection from him. This would also involve the erection of an appropriate building, climate controlled and fireand water-proofed, to house the collection. The artifacts would be displayed in suitable cabinets to display the material, illuminated by adjustable lights, a conference room where lectures could take place and where school children could learn more about their rich cultural heritage, and a study room where formal researchers from cultural, archaeological and ethnological associations could work.

Women farmers boost food security More and more women are getting their hands dirty in the farming sector, as the world gradually changes in favour of gender balance in the labour market. According to the International Food Policy and Research Institute, working towards achieving food security in Africa by 2020, land ownership by women “could change the face of Africa and speed up efforts to achieve food and nutrition security.” Women in rural areas are said to contribute more and more to food security through farming. Ms Tintswalo Mabunda of Mapuve, Giyani, is an example of a woman farmer that contributes to food security, while also providing employment in the community. Despite her limited resources — no tractors to plough and no irrigation equipment to water her ten hectare farm — she’s able to produce fresh vegetables that is sold to retailers such as Pick’nPay and other shops in Giyani. Like many other emerging farmers, Tintswalo would like to grow and be able to enter the bigger markets. However, she is faced with the challenges of lack of financial resources. “I would like to expand my farm to twenty hectares, but as you see, I’m still an emerging farmer and don’t have financial power to do that,” she explained. “Even this one is not fully fenced, because I don’t have enough money to do the fencing,” she said, adding that with seven workers on her pay roll, and the losses that they incur daily from the livestock that eat their crops, “it’s even more harder to save for fencing.” Another challenge that women farmers face is that they cannot defend themselves should anything happen on the farm, since farms are usually far away from community settlements. This is why Tintswalo is currently trying to recruit other women to farm nearby, so they could help each other and share ideas. “I need to have someone nearby to hear our screams and cries for help should anything happen, since we’re all women here. “If we had the tools and equipment this farm would have been big enough to export its products, because the soil here is very fertile,” she said. — Orlando Chauke

REGS: Mnr Allen Nel (regs) van Adams Art in Haenertsburg het die leerlinge en ouers van die Hoërskool Ben Vorster in Tzaneen met ‘n inspirerende boodskap oor die skeppingsproses toegespreek, tydens die onlangse kunsveiling van die skool. Hy het ook ‘n prys geborg, vir die beste kunswerk van die aand — wat aan Marike Swanepoel toegeken is. Mnr Dewald Jacobs, die afslaer, Tammy Moutinho en Nel staan hier voor een van die treffende kunswerke. ONDER is mnr Dewald Jacobs van Polokwane wat as afslaer nie een koper se sak onaangeroer gelaat het nie. Al 52 kunswerke van die gr 9’s wat te koop gebied is tydens die kunsveiling van die Hoërskool Ben Vorster, is verkoop. Die duurste kunswerk was Marike Swanepoel s’n, wat R552 gehaal het. Deel van haar uitstekende skildery steek tussen haar en Nel uit.

After months of dedicated practicing, singing and sweating, the time came for the Emaya to make her stage debut. Under the talented guidance of Ms Mareli van Onselen, this original production by Merensky High School, boasting a musical score in line with a Broadway production (or Glee episode), transported the audience to a place far, far away where dreams come true. “I am humbled by the thought, yet boomingly proud of each and every contributing member of the cast and crew of Emaya,” said Van Onselen. The lead characters are played by Monika Marais (Emaya), Stephani Buys (Emaya’s mother), Dirk Uys (Emaya’s father), LeRoy van den Vyver (Peter Pan), Ryno Jooste (Jan) and Natasha Thackvrey (Skye). BELOW a group of pirates from Emaya pose for the camera. With this production Merensky set a new standard. LINKS ONDER: Die Hoërskool Ben Vorster het met hul onlangse Kultuuraand bewys dat hulle ook op die kultuurfront met talle sterre kan spog. Daar is 31 nommers aangebied, wat gewissel het van die sysagte klavierklanke van die hoofmeisie, Anri Winter, tot die dawerende tromme van die groep Tuisgemaak; van solo-sangers tot ‘n duetpaar en twee uitstaande monoloë. Danse het gewissel van uitstaande moderne dansroetines tot hip-hop. Die Vossies sien met verwagting uit na die revue wat kort na die September-skoolvakansie aangebied word. Die Khaki’s (links) was een van die twee manssangroepe wat die gehoor se skoene op die houtvloer van die skoolsaal laat tik het. Hul sangnommers was hoofsaaklik uit die FAK gekies en hulle het dit met oorgawe aangebied — tot groot genot van die gehoor van oud en jonk. Die nuwe hoofleiers (regs) van die Hoërskool Ben Vorster is pas terug van hul oefenkamp en gereed om enige uitdaging aan te durf. Die nuwe hoofleiers is Adele Adriaanse (onderhoofmeisie), Basani Bambisa (onderhoofmeisie), Klara Olivier (hoofmeisie), Luaan Louw (hoofseun), Edri Vorster (onderhoofseun) en Schoeman Mynhardt (onderhoofseun).

Broers sluit aan by Plasie-personeel...

Die Hoërskool Merensky het mnre Francois en Gerhard du Toit by hulle verwelkom. Die broers sluit aan by die skool se sportkantoor en is albei kranige sportmanne. Gerhard het vir Tukkies naellope gehardloop in die 100-, 200- en 400 m, sowel as lang en kort hekkies en medaljes ingeoes by SA-byeenkomste. Daarteenoor is Francois die rugbyman wat gereeld vir die Blou Bulle se o.16-span uitgedraf het, interprovinsiaal geswem het en vele meer. “My eerste doelwit vir Merensky se sport is om deelname aan sportaktiwiteite te verhoog. Massadeelname onsluit dikwels sluipende talent,” sê Gerhard — terwyl Francois kopknikkend die stelling benadruk. Gerhard sal fokus op die atletiek, terwyl Francois se kop reeds spelpatrone op die rugbyveld bedink. Foto’s deur die skool voorsien; ongelukkig nagelaat om te sê wie van die twee is wie.

Skool op TV

Die regisseur en hoofkameraman van AgriTV het onlangs met sy kamera by die Hoërskool Merensky opgedaag, om ‘n program vir die aktuele landbouprogram saam te stel. AgriTV is ‘n daaglikse landbouprogram wat al vir amper ‘n dekade bestaan en gee

‘n oorsig oor landbousake. Juis daarom is dit vir die vervaardigers van die program belangrik om profiele te doen van uitsoek landbouskole. Mnr Rudolf Swanepoel, die regisseur, sê hy het die besoek by die skool en die Plasies se gasvryheid verskriklik baie geniet.

GREEN FINGER TIPS

Full sun plants need to be watered every second day (4 days a week). Shade plants, such as those which grow under trees, under shade cloth or in your home, should only be watered once the soil is dry or else it may lead to over watering. These such plants include: ferns, impatiens and zantedeschias. As spring is around the corner, the best plants to plant include those with colourful flowers as they blossom at best in summer.

Blue Daisy: Ground cover plants Produce sky blue flowers Require full sun Can tolerate full rain Used best to close up open ground as they spread Full year growth

Roses: Full sun and rain Best grown in the ground and out of pots Full year growth Fertilise every second week with 815 fertiliser and spray with rose care chemicals to prevent leaves falling off and to to keep unwanted insects away.

Purple Daisy

Definitions What to know Cut back: Refers to cutting off dead flowers about 5cm down the stem. This does not include buds as buds will still bloom. After all buds have flowered, plant may be cut down about 15cm from the ground to assist regrowth. Semi – shade: A plant which requires a little more shade than a full sun plant. Examples include, plants in the window. Semi – sun: A plant which requires a little more sun than a full shade plant. Examples include, plants on the stoep.

Daisy: Require full sun Best growth in the ground, not pots Suitable to plant with Blue Daisies as they are ground cover plants Must be cut back after rain and showered with Virikop dust (plant medicine) Full year growth

ADJUSTABLE SHELVES

METAL BRACKETS & WOOD BRACKETS Most adjustable shelves are supported by metal brackets. These brackets are inexpensive and much easier than most wooden supports. Drill holes into the supporting walls of the shelf at the desired spacing intervals. Then, slip the bracket into the hole and lay the shelf on the two supporting brackets.

Use simple dado cuts in the side support for adjustable wood shelves. Dado cuts can be inserted at any desired spacing to provide as many adjustments as you need. If the shelving notches are carefully cut, they create quite a pleasing effect. You can insert box units to improve both the appearance and the function of the adjustable shelves. Another design for adjustable shelves requires a Âą 25mm x 100mm board of the desired length for the base.

Group visit Turkey Stanford Lake College Gr 8 English teacher and librarian Margaret Freestone developed a love for Turkey when her daughter treated her to a Christmas holiday there. She returned to tell the learners about her travels and they expressed a desire to see this foreign land. The idea became a reality and Freestone and IT teacher Joy Park took twenty pupils for a visit to Turkey. The group flew on Turkish Airlines and got their first taste of Turkish cuisine. Hiring an air-conditioned Mercedes bus, as temperatures reached 40 degrees, the group visited historic landmarks. They also visited Didum, a

holiday resort where the Aegean Sea meets the Mediterranean. Next was Canakkale and from there on to Troy, a 5 000 year old archaeological city. They loved climbing the three storey high wooden Trojan horse built in 1975. A tour of Ephesus to walk down the same street that St Paul walked down and then on to Pamukkale. Freestone said: “Most of them had never been abroad and it was a first time to Turkey for all of them. Seeing such a vastly different culture was an eye opener and has made them grow up. Now that they have a taste for travelling, we are planning a trip to Italy next year.”

This week’s fitness tip Ettienne van Wyngaardt (Fitness specialist)

Water is the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off! Although most of us take it for granted, pure clean water may be the only true magic potion for permanent weight loss. Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase. An increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.

23

Bulletin

Here’s the reason why: the kidneys cannot function properly without enough water. When they do not work to capacity, some of their load is dumped on the liver. One of the liver’s primary functions is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body. But if the liver has to do some of the kidney’s work, it cannot work at full throttle. As a result, it metabolizes less fat and more fat remains stored in the body and weight loss stops.

REGS: Johan Wagner, ’n boogskut van formaat van die Hoërskool Merensky, is gekies om SA by die Afrika Spele, wat binnekort in Tunisië gehou word, te gaan verteenwoordig. ONDER: Timothy en Samuel Varrie, twee broers van Merensky, het die naweek na nog ’n suksesvolle landloopbyeenkoms Limpopo-kleure verwerf en sodoende gekwalifiseer om later vanjaar aan die SA Kampioenskappe deel te neem. Dit is die sewende agtereenvolgende keer dat Timothy kwalifiseer en die agste keer vir Samuel.

Ons kinders, ons trots! Our youth, our pride!

Four conquer the Trans Baviaans The longest single day stage race in mountain biking in the world was held in SA recently, and four Tzaneen cyclists took part in the event. Starting in Willowmore in the Eastern Cape, the route winds through beautiful mountain ranges into the magnificent Baviaanskloof. The Trans Baviaans is not only the longest mountain biking event of its kind in the world, but also one of SA’s premier events. Team Full Cycle consisted of four Tzaneen Cycling Club members, Mario Ferreira, Dick Rood, Maurice Ferreira and Steven Schoeman. Their aim was to finish the race in fifteen hours. They managed to finish in 12:38:00 and came fifth in their category and 83rd overall out of 350 teams. RIGHT: Mario Ferreira, Dick Rood, Maurice Ferreira and Steven Schoeman.

Drie struikel by voorlaaste hekkie Slegs een van die vier A-rugbyspanne van die Hoërskool Ben Vorster het Saterdag na die eindronde van die Beeldtrofee deurgedring. Die o.15A’s het in hul kragmeting teen Pretoria Tuine gespeel en met 10-6 gewen, nadat hulle met rustyd 6-5 agter was. Die linkervleuel Surprise Mathebule het in die eerste hefte ’n drie gaan druk, maar Tuine het met twee strafdoele geslaag. Die Vossies het hul oorwinning tot op die laaste nippertjie uitgestel, toe die losskakel Arno Maree die tuisspan se verdediging geflous en agter die doellyn gaan draai het. Die o.14A’s het teen Potchefstroom Gimnasium gespeel en met 27-7 verloor. Die o.16A’s het in Pretoria teen Overkruin gespeel en ’n rillerstryd met 10-6 verloor. Die eerste span het teen Lichtenburg te staan gekom en teen rustyd na die gunsteling gelyk om na die eindstryd te vorder. Die linkervleuel Tovhi Nefale het gaan druk en losskakel Marcel Scholtz het die drie verdoel om die rustydtelling op 7-0 te staan te bring. Die tweede helfte het egter aan die tuisspan behoort en met ’n sterk wind agter hulle kon hulle drie kere agter die doellyn gaan draai.
