Die dansgroep van die Hoërskool Merensky het tydens die opedag by die skool — waar gr 7’s onthaal is en van nader kon kennis maak met die skool, om te help met hul besluit op hul hoërskoolloopbaan volgende jaar — die klein asempies laat wegslaan met hul elegante passies. Verskeie deure is oopgemaak, figuurlik en letterlik, om te wys wat die skool bied.

The legal cost to ratepayers for the Mopani District Municipality’s ongoing court battles regarding a tender for a water pipeline to connect the Nandoni Dam at Thohoyandou with the Nsami Dam at Giyani, could run into a couple of million rand. The MDM has now turned to the Constitutional Court (CC), after an interdict was granted against the MDM in the High Court. Acting Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke has to consider the appeal to the CC. A lawyer who has a vested interest in the case, says “this will cost the MDM” and added that the serious allegations about the MDM’s handling of the tender could also “bite the MDM”. The Bulletin is investigating the case and will reprt on it in due course.

Vlieg is nog altyd onseker hoekom sekere woorde juis sogenaamde vloekwoorde is, en ander nie! Wat maak nou eintlik van ‘n woord ‘n vloekwoord? Om nader aan ‘n antwoord te kom het Vlieg oudergewoonte, en gereelde lesers sou dit al kon raai, sy betroubare Verklarende Handwoordeboek van die Afrikaanse Taal nader gesleep. vloek’woord s.nw. Kragwoord; woord wat ‘n verwensing uitspreek; Godslasterlike woord. Selfs Vlieg, sou sommige mense sê, stem saam dat Godslasterlike woorde nie gebruik moet word nie, so dit is onaanvaarbaar. Woorde wat verwensing uitspreek, wel, Vlieg dink dit sou onregverdig wees om al sulke woorde te verban. Dis partykeer darem nodig om iemand ordentlik te verwens. So kom ons noem dit, semiaanvaarbaar. Kragwoorde daarenteen is v.i. (Vliegs insiens) deel van ‘n taal, en het net onaanvaarbaar geword omdat een of ander iemand op ‘n dag so besluit het, en vir geen ooglopend logiese redes nie. Vir Vlieg dus is kragwoorde heeltemal aanvaarbaar. Daarom was Vlieg vandeesweek verbaas toe die hele nasie so tekere gaan oor die agbare minister van sports die Bokke ‘n begeesterde opdrag gee om die ander rugbyspanne by die wêreldbeker te gaan moer en bliksem. Daar was geen Godslastering nie, niemand is verwens nie, net ‘n ou kragwoordjie of twee om te bena-

druk dat hy erns het met dié saak. Wat Vlieg net so verbaas het, is dat geen van die ander koerante moer kan reg spel nie. Dis mos nie m@#r, of m%$r, of m&*r, nie. Dis moer met ‘n m, ‘n o, ‘n e, en ‘n r! Omdat die betrokke minister voorheen dieselfde presidentskap beklee het as wat die Snotkop van Seshego tans beklee, en dinge in ‘n ander deel van die Goudstad ietwat onstuimiger verloop het op dieselfde dag, was Vlieg vir ‘n oomblik bekommerd dat die agbare minister homself vergis het met watter skare hy toespreek. Daar was moer en bliksem van ‘n ander aard aan die gang. Daai ou kinderpartytjie het darem nou vir hulself behoorlike moeilikheid veroorsaak. Maar nou ja, dit gebeur mos as die kinders kan maak net wat hulle wil. Vlieg kom agter dat dit mos maar die siekte van ons tyd is dat meeste kinders geen dissipline het nie, geen respek vir ouer mense het nie en alle gesag uittart in plaas daarvan om hulle daaraan te onderwerp. Vlieg is egter steeds van mening dat kinders nie net hul goeie maniere nie, maar ook hulle slegtes juis by hul ouers leer. Vlieg wonder net watter pa sal sy seun leer om in ‘n juffrou se laai te... wel kom ons spel nou maar soos die groot koerante: k%k! Vlieg wonder soms of die sondes van kinders ook besoek aan die vaders bring!

Walk for water

When Ms Alison Jennings heard of the plight of a rural Limpopo school, she decided to make a difference. Alison, who’s a Maths and Science teacher in Johannesburg, was attending an Eco Schools conference at the Tzaneen Country Lodge. A secondary school called Mugwazeni, some 40 km outside Tzaneen, was doing well until a total lack of water stopped the dream of being the best Eco School in Limpopo. The well-tended vegetable garden, a shining example of permaculture and the tree nursery began dying. The nursery could no longer provide an income for the school and the burgeoning community where there is an 80% unemployment rate. Alison decided on “Walking for Water” to raise funds to help Mugwazeni. She and her engineer husband Graham walked the famous 320 km Camino Primitivo pilgrimage in Spain. It took them two weeks, and they returned with three sponsorships. Mr Deon du Plessis, who’s been salesman for Marley Pipes in Limpopo for 28 years, ran a course to teach the pupils to drill and put up the guttering by themselves within a week. Alison says the biggest need is to install the age of 42, her son, Mr Thomson a rainwater harvesting Shiburi, at 46 and her youngest son , system to capture and store rain water.

Atherstone clivias best again

Die Constantia Sitrusstudiegroep het Dinsdagaand ‘n insiggewende vergadering gehad, toe Arysta LifeScience kernaanbiedings oor sitrusverbouing gelewer het. Arysta is die wêreld se grootste verskaffer van landbouchemikalieë in private besit, met sy hoofkantore in Japan

en Frankryk. Van die boere wat die vergadering bygewoon het, is mnre Jacques Smith, JJ de Nyschen, Andries Burger, Jacques van Wyk, Niel Jacobus en Willem Stolp. ‘n Volledige berig oor die vergadering sal later dié maand in die AgriBulletin verskyn.

Tande is nie appels nie Appels moet met appels vergelyk word — nie met pere nie. Altyd? Dit lyk nie so nie, want ‘n geel Golden Delicious-appel, met sy sagte tekstuur, en ‘n groen Granny Smith-appel met sy harde tekstuur is daar nogal ‘n taamlike verskil. Die werk wat tandheelkundiges doen, vereis dat appels met appels vergelyk word — maar dan moet daar ruimte wees om die verskille tussen appels ook in berekening te bring. Dr Deon Coertzen van Tzaneen is die voorsitter van die Limpopo-tak van die SA Tandheelkundevereniging (bekend as SADA), die professionele vereniging van tandartse in die land. Hy het die afgelope week met ons gesels, na aanleiding van verlede week se PriceWatch in die Bulletin. Coertzen het aan ons verduidelik hoe appels met appels vergelyk moet word, maar dit verder geneem om te verduidelik dat selfs die appels verskil. Want, byvoorbeeld, ‘n gaatjie in ‘n tand word nie sommer net gestop nie. Daar moet bepaal word hoe groot die gaatjie is, wat met die tandemalje om die gaatjie gebeur het en dan moet bepaal word watse stopselmateriaal gebruik moet word. So ‘n vulsel kan van wat in die tandheelkunde bekend is as ‘n Vlak 1- tot ‘n Vlak 4-vulsel wissel. Verskillende materiale (tot by goud) wat vir vulsels gebruik word, verskil nogal dramaties in terme van prys en selfs gehalte (soos deur verskillende leweransiers gehef word). Dit geld ook vir tandkrone. Tandartse gebruik ook nie noodwendig almal dieselfde toerusting nie. Toerusting, wat in die algemeen baie duur is, kan nuut en die jongste tegnologie wees, of dit kan ouer wees en nie die jongste tegnologie verteenwoordig nie. Ouer X-straalkameras, wat pasiënte aan hoër vlakke van bestraling blootstel, word deesdae vervang met digitale toerusting wat nie die hoër bestralingsvlakke meebring nie. Coertzen het ons ook ingelei na die verskillende kodes waarvolgens tandartse se werk en koste bepaal word , die probleme wat deesdae met mediesefondse ervaar word

— wat voorskriftelik is oor tariewe — en verduidelik hoe ‘n tandheelkundige probleem nie vergelyk kan word met ‘n blikkie kondensmelk wat die koper van die rak haal nie. Elke pasiënt het ‘n eiesoortige probleem, sê hy. “Die PriceWatch waarin pryse vergelyk is het minstens bevestig dat tandartse nie aan prysvasstelling skuldig is nie. Daar is duidelike verskille binne die kostekodes wat tandartse gebruik en alhoewel ons gereeld vergader om sake van gemeenskaplike belang te bespreek, bly die tariewe van die lede hul eie saak,” sê Coertzen. Ons het met nog ‘n tandarts in die dorp gesels, wat verkies om anoniem te bly, veral omdat die voorsitter van hul vereniging reeds met ons die saak bespreek het. Dié tandarts sê wat belangrik is met tandheelkunde is dat tegnici betrokke is by byvoorbeeld krone of kunstande. Die tegnici werk binne die raamwerk van ‘n bepaalde wet en hef tariewe wat per wet vasgestel word. Die tandarts moet die tegnikus betaal en die geld van die pasiënt vorder (min of meer soos dit met prokureurs en advokate werk, waar die kliënt die advokaat se koste via die prokureur moet betaal). Die tandarts sê hy werk byvoorbeeld met dertien verskillende krone en wys dan daarop dat dit haas onmoontlik is om ‘n standaard prys vir ‘n kroon te kwoteer. Die koste van ‘n kroon hang dus benewens die koste van die materiaal en die tandarts se tyd en arbeid, ook af van die koste van die tegnikus.

Reward offered after farm attack in Agatha A reward of R10 000 has been offered to anyone who provides information to the police that leads to the arrest and conviction of the three assailants who attacked Bridget Hilton-Barber and Richard Chipps at Stone Cottage in Agatha on the evening of Wednesday 31 August. The Hilton-Barber family, who regard the incident as one of attempted murder, is funding this together with friends and relatives. The case is being handled by W/O KO Masinge (083 550 6774) of the Tzaneen Police Station (015 306 2120) and all calls should be directed to him. According to information provided by the family, three men dressed in T shirts and jeans, armed with butcher’s knives, burst into the house. Two men attacked Richard Chipps, one trying to stab him in the chest. Richard managed to kick him away but the knife entered his left leg above the knee. The third man attacked Bridget with a knife and a brick. Bridget screamed and grappled with her assailant. He

Roumen Farms Wholesale Nursery in Georges Valley, Tzaneen, was announced show champion at the Northern Clivia Show in Pretoria. It is the fourth time since 2006 that Hilton and Liza Atherstone have scooped this prestigious award. Many growers experienced a later than usual flowering due the consistenly cold winter. Despite the concern by the show organisers that entries would be lower than usual, a record number of entries were received. The Atherstones entered a total of 23 plants and received a total of twenty awards: 8 gold, 6 silver, 4 bronze, 2 “best on show” in their categories — 1st in the non-flowering section — a beautiful Mandarin variegated and a 3rd in “best on show” with flower — a stunning yellow with two umbels. Two of their plants in particular, caused quite a stir — a

slashed Bridget across the head with the knife. Bridget managed to wrest the knife away from her assailant and kicked him backwards. She was bleeding profusely. She stood up and confronted the man with his own knife. He and the other men retreated to the door and ran off. Items stolen were one HP laptop, two Cannon cameras and lenses and camera bags, pink Blackberry cell phone and a pair of large white Adidas running shoes (with distinctive yellow heel band). Richard drove himself and Bridget to the Tzaneen Medi-Clinic and Bridget was immediately taken into theatre. The doctor stated later that Bridget had nearly been scalped and was lucky to be alive. The Agatha neighbourhood watch arrived soon after the incident and were soon followed by the police. The police were still at the scene when Richard returned later that evening after his wound had been treated and were joined by further contingents of police.

magnificent yellow with very large flowers and a yellow/green interspecific. The yellow won a silver medal due to the head not being quite ‘full’ enough. The interspecific had been an exciting ’find’ in the garden (one of Hilton’s own crosses) and unfortunately drooped its head! There will be a clivia show presented by the newly formed Bosveld Clivia Interest Group tomorrow in Polokwane: Venue : The Farmyard next to Mall of the North; Plant entries 07:00 to 09:00; Open to public 10:00 to 15:30.

Nicolene Evison: As hy niks skade gedoen het al die jare nie, hoekom hom weg vat? Aan die ander hand, is dit hoe ons wil hê toeriste en besoekers moet Tzaneen sien? Met mense wat langs die rivier slaap, sonder ‘n huis? As mens ‘n beter plek vir hom kan kry soos ‘n shelter of iets, dan kan hy verwyder word, maar nie as hy nêrens het om te gaan nie! Johan Deysel: Ek sal graag wil sien dat hy permanent verwyder word. Geregtigheid sal moet geskied — wat sal gebeur as nog mense daar begin plak, dan het ons ‘n plaaslike lokasie in ons dorp? — dit begin al kla so lyk! en wat van die riool in ons rivierwater — ook van die klein besighede onderkant die taxi rank en die motorwerktuigkundiges daar gebruik die rivier oewer vir ‘n toilet! Ek het dit al menigte kere gesien. Hannes Enslin: As ons dan nie kan wen nie, het ek die volgende voorstel. Kan ons nie maar dan reël om almal ons karavaantjies, tente en skuilinkies vir die week langs hom te gaan opslaan en regtig probeer om goeie bure te wees nie? Klink na ‘n baie aangename persoon en niemand sal jou seker pla as die groot man hier langs jou bly nie. My bakkie het in elk geval ‘n diens nodig — dit kan dan sommer in my tuin gedoen word.

The cell phone, the messages, the farmer and the Land Bank — Part 2 LATEST: Senior official in Polokwane suspended and also being investigated

Ambulansdiens se sake vlot ‘n Baie welkom skenking van R30 000 van ‘n maatskappy in Phalaborwa (waaroor mettertyd meer besonderhede sal volg) aan die Tzaneen Ambulansdiens (TAS) sal nuttig aangewend kan word om die ambulanse verder toe te rus. Nadat die skenkings die afgelope tyd afgeneem het, het dié onverwagse skenking groot dankbaarheid by die direksie van TAS gebring. Die tweede ambulans, wat op Phalaborwa gestasioneer is, sal hopelik eersdaags weer op die pad wees, nadat dit in ‘n ongeluk betrokke was. Inmiddels is verdere opwindende nuus dat ‘n saamwerkooreenkoms tussen TAS en ER24 bereik is, terwyl daar ook informeel goeie samewerking tussen TAS en ander ambulansdienste in die omgewing is. ER24 het ook noodsaaklike ambulans-toerusting aan TAS op ‘n leenbasis beskikbaar gestel. Nog goeie nuus hieroor is dat ‘n weldoener ‘n defibrillator (hartskokmasjien) aan die tweede ambulans beskikbaar gestel het, so-

dat albei ambulanse nou daarmee toegerus is. Die voorsitter van TAS, dr Ig van Rensburg, sê dit gaan finansieel goed, alhoewel dit soms lol om geld betyds van pasiënte wat die diens gebruik het, in te vorder. Hy sê die maandelikse skenkings het sterk afgeneem en daar gaan voorkant toe probeer word om weer mense te kry wat maandeliks sal bydra. “Die direksie dink tans aan maniere om bydraers ‘n voordeel te laat geniet en om skenkers in die verskillende kategorieë — soos maandelikse bydraers, eenmalige bydraers, groot bydraers en kleiner bydraers — bepaalde voordele op ‘n skaal te bied. Alhoewel meer personeel benodig word, laat die finansies dit nie tans toe nie. Die diens ly egter nie, want die personeel werk hard en getrou en los mekaar sinvol af. Die publiek word steeds aangemoedig om maandeliks by te dra, sodat die Art 21-maatskappy (‘n maatskappy sonder winsbejag) kan voortgaan om die noodsaaklike gemeenskapsdiens te lewer.

Staff members of the GTM’s Human Resources department joined in on Casual Day and showed just how relaxed the day should be celebrated.

Vrydag 09 September

Die sangoma Die sangoma wat hom knus op die wal van die Letaba tuis gemaak het, so onder die neuse van al wat wetstoepasser is en amptenaar is, speel nou eintlik met almal. Daar is egter ‘n paar lesse te leer uit die speletjie. Die eerste les is, moenie dat ‘n verkeerde ding baard kry nie, want dan is sukkel jou voorland. Die man moes lankal verwyder gewees het, maar toe was die mense wat ruggraat moes toon, slap in die rug en die knieë en die elmboë. Intussen het hy vir hom as ‘t ware verblyfreg verwerf. Tweedens: eintlik hinder die man natuurlik niemand nie. Sy hoendertjies en hondjie is ook nie lastig nie. Wat wel ‘n groot probleem op die rivieroewer is, is die klomp onwettige agterplaas-motorwerktuigkundiges. Hulle stort olie en diesel en motoronderdele (soos oliefilters) in die rivier en sorg vir die groot besoedeling. Hoekom word hulle nie verwilder nie. Benewens die erge besoedeling wat hulle veroorsaak, is dit uiters onooglik. Derdens: as wetsongehoorsaamheid eers toegelaat word, word dit bitter moeilik later gestuit.

My kind en ander leerders wat tans die top-leierskapposisies beklee, het hulself onderskei en is op ‘n demokratiese wyse verkies en is nie “gekoop” nie, maar het uit eie keuse lede van die Vossie skoolgemeenskap geword. Elke leerder het ‘n konstitusionele reg tot opvoeding, inbegrepe die reg van keuse van opvoedingsinstansie, watter keuse uiteraard beïnvloed word deur beskikbare vakkeuses, fasiliteite, ens. ten einde die leerder se potensiaal optimaal te ontwikkel. Die leerder wat hierdie keuse maak, betaal dieselfde skoolgeld en het dieselfde aanspraak op “Vossie”-status en regte wat daaruit voortspruit en is nie “buitestaanders” nie. Slegs volgehoue toewyding en harde werk kan boonop opname in sport- of akademiese spanne verseker. Globalisering en tegnologie het grense vervaag — selfs dorpsgrense. Dis ‘n werklikheid. Die voordeel egter is die integrasie van ‘n verskeidenheid van kulture, talente, idees, ensovoorts, tot verryking van die Vossie-gemeenskap en die “buitestaanders” — alles ten bate van opvoeding. ‘n Presteerder kan eenvoudig nooit ‘n ander presteerder ontneem van prestasies in eie geledere nie. Presteerders kweek presteerders en ‘n strewe na uitnemendheid

Die standaard, teleurgestelde ouer, is uitnemendheid — uitnemendheid ter wille van oorlewing. • Ons vestig die aandag daaop dat dit ‘n brief van ‘n leser was en nie ‘n berig wat deur die koerant geïnisieer of verwoord is nie — Redakteur

Lees saam Y du Toit, Posbus 357 Tzaneen, skryf: Septembermaand is leesmaand. As jy na skool nog nooit weer `n boek oopgemaak het om te lees nie, wil ek jou uitnooi om dit nou te doen. Leen `n boek, sluit by die biblioteek aan of nog beter: koop `n boek. Lees net. Dit kan jou lewe verander. Biblioteke behoort as `n noodsaaklike diens beskou te word. As kind moes ons klaarkom met `n longdrop en `n kers, maar ons huis was vol boeke. Ons het met `n donkiekar skool toe gegaan. In die middae wanneer die donkies traag was om die lang pad huis toe te vat, het neef Danie vir ons voorgelees uit sy leesboek. Saans het my pa vir ons `n storie uit die Landbou Weekblad voorgelees. Hierdie gebeure het onbewustelik `n liefde vir lees by my gevestig. Baie jare later het ek een van my spruite in gr 2 uit die skool gehaal en sy het begin lees. Omdat sy soveel tyd op hande gehad het, het sy haar eie klere begin maak. Sy het begin kook en bak. Sy skilder pragtig en maak die lekkerste koffies. `n Paar maande gelede het sy haar tasse gepak en `n beter heenkome in die stad gaan

Rev Ron J Reiners • 083 617 8442 In my discussions with others it seems that some are of the opinion that I am waxing too theological and perhaps too much like a teacher. So I have prayed about this and I will in this article just state all the names that God was called and give a brief meaning to them, perhaps you can then ask your religious instructor to explain them in detail. Elohim: – Almighty creator; El Shadai: God the mountain or God the enough; Jehovah Jirah: The Lord will provide or give of Himself; Jehovah Rophe: I am the Lord who heals; Jehovah Nissi: The Lord is my banner; Jehovah Qadesh: The Lord who sanctifies; Jehovah Shalom: The God of peace; Jehovah Rohe: My Shepard; Adonai: Lord; Jehovah Tsidkenu: The Lord our Righteousness; Jehovah Shammah: The Lord is there; Jesus: Our Saviour. We as Christians use mainly the name Jesus but we must also consider all the names God was called after all who is Jesus but the Son of the Living God. In this awful world we live in we need reassuring all the time that God is with us always. He is there to share our sorrow and our joy. What we need to do is to believe that all things are possible through Him. This is called “FAITH” if we do not have faith then we can be considered as not existing, a mere body that function without direction or cause. I hope that we never forget the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus paid for each and everyone of us. Yes at times we will doubt that He is still there but rest assured He will never leave us. God Bless You All

Holrug gery Piet Smit van Letsitele skryf: Die brief van Teleurgestelde Ben Vorster-ouer in u uitgawe van 2 September verwys. Ek glo nie dit is die regte ding vir ouers van ‘n skool om skoolsake met mekaar uit te spook in die media nie, maar as ouer van “buurskoolkinders” in Ben Vorster wil ek graag die skrywer daarvan op ‘n paar van sy/haar feitefoute wys. Dit is vir my altyd ongelukkig as iemand oor veral skoolsake onder die dekmantel van ‘n skuilnaam wegkruip. Dié optrede en veral die skrywer se kwetsende taalgebruik soos “siek obsessie” laat my tog wonder of die skrywer inderdaad ‘n ouer van die skool is. Die skrywer van die brief se verwysing na buurskole is ietwat verwarrend. Kinders van buurdorpe soos Letsitele, Duiwelskloof,

Hoedspruit en Gravelotte is al vir dekades leerlinge aan beide Ben Vorster en Merensky en om hulle nou as “onwelkom” in Ben Vorster te verklaar, is bloot net die optrede van iemand wat of hopeloos oningelig of kwade bedoelings het. Hierdie skole is belangrike voedingsskole van beide skole in Tzaneen, maar ook Stanford. Ek het probeer om die werklike feite oor die getalle waarna die skrywer verwys te kry en die werklike feite gee vir my ‘n verdere aanduiding dat die skrywer totaal verwyderd van die skool en die waarheid is. Die skrywer beweer dat 70% van die eerste rugbyspan nie uit die skool se natuurlike voedingsgebied (soos hy/sy dit sien) kom nie. Die waarheid is dat uit die twintig spelers agt in Tzaneen woonagtig is, ses uit Hoedspruit-omgewing kom, drie uit Letsitele, een uit Gravelotte, een uit Musina en een uit Mokopane. Soos ek die voedingsbronne van Ben Vorster verstaan, kom daar dus 90% uit ons eie geledere! Ten opsigte van die leiers vir 2012 sit die skrywer ook die pot heeltemal mis. Slegs een van die ses is woonagtig in Phalaborwa en sy is in Ben Vorster uit eie keuse. Die verwysings na “koop” is ook nou holrug gery. Werwing van gr 8-leerders vind by beide skole plaas en alle kinders wat na Ben Vorster gaan is nie gekoop nie. Die meerderheid doen dit omdat die skool vir hulle ‘n geleentheid bied om aan ‘n toekoms en loopbaan te werk. Sport is mos deesdae ook ‘n loopbaan, of hoe? Ons as “buurskoolouers” sal nooit skuldig voel of om verskoning vra as ons kinders op enige van die hoërskole in ons gebied presteer en uitstyg nie. Vossie-groete

Feit: Mens hoor gereeld hoe na “die ware feite” verwys word. Dit is toutologies (‘n onnodige herhaling). Feit beteken immers: dit staan vas, is onomstootlik so, inderdaad... Die ware feite word as versterkingsvorm ingespan, maar behoort liefs vermy te word.

Van toutologie gepraat: pleonasme is die gebruik van meer woorde as wat nodig is om ‘n gedagte uit te druk (woordoortolligheid). Pleonasmes verteenwoordig slordige taalgebruik soos “‘n ou bejaarde” of “‘n vals leuen”. Komma: aan die be-

gin van ‘n sin na die naam van ‘n persoon/ persone wat aangespreek word. U edele, ek erken dat ek te vinnig gery het.

The Museums of Limpopo and Mpumalanga We were pleasantly surprised by the reaction from readers after our feature on the Tzneen Museum, a few weeks ago. We thus decided to add something for the benefit of the museum dwellers There are splendid museums in Limpopo. In the Kruger National Park, Thulamela Hill is a reconstructed stone-walled hilltop Iron Age settlement. Masorini is an Iron Age Ba-Phalaborwa settlement with reconstructed huts and other structures. This hill was first discovered and described by Jürgen Witt in 1968 to the German Research Council. The Tsonga kraal Open Air Museum near Letsitele is a living museum depicting traditional Tsonga life as it was 150 years ago. Daily demonstrations include music/musical instruments, woodwork/carvings, weaving rush mats, clay work, iron smelting, and salt making. At Marulaneng (Hoedspruit) the Nyani Tribal Village has been reconstructed to resemble an authentic Shangaan village of some fifty years ago. At Mokopane the Arend Dieperink Museum is housed in a historical stone building and depicts the cultural heritage of the Northern Province. Among the themes are the paleontology and archaeology of the area, a typical Bushveld home, and guns, farm implements, wagons and tractors. In Mpumalanga, the museum at Lydenburg houses exhibitions on historic events since the 17th century and incorporates various cultures, societies and life-styles. The Barberton Museum has displays on geology and mining as well as archaeology, ethnology, and military and cultural history. The Botshabelo Mission Station is a historical mission station that includes Fort Merensky, churches and a parsonage. The museum provides a look into the daily routine of a 19th century mission station. Adjacent to it is a traditional village and living museum

Police trained on veld fires Sixteen police officers were trained to handle charges laid by landowners against the lighting of fires as well as protecting indigenous forests, woodlands and the bushveld against unlawful cutting of trees. The Letaba Fire Protection Associa-

tion (LFPA) organised the workshop that was held in August. Police officers from Tzaneen, Maake, Ritavi, Letsitele, Bolobedu, Modjadjiskloof and Haenertsburg were trained in terms of the National Veld and Forest Fire Act and the National Forest Act.

Adv George Ngwato from Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry indicated that 30,6% of the country has an extreme veld fire risk and the Mopani area is in this category. He explained how the Act can be enforced. Imprisonment of up to two years, a fine, or both

Offenses include burning when the fire danger rating is high, landowners leaving a fire unattended before it is extinguished properly and a landowner on whose land a veld fire starts, burn or spread, fails to prepare and maintain a firebreak on his or her side of the boundary with the adjoining land. Ms Lerato Morudu, forestry scientist responsible for capacity building and awareness in the department of agriculture, fisheries and forestry gave information on the national Act. This

Limpopo kry ’n infrarooi ‘oog’ Jean Aucamp

jean@bulletin.us.com

Mnr Johan Deysel van Mopani Electrical in Tzaneen wys hier die duur Fluke Ti25-termografiese kamera waarmee hy loer...

Om met elektrisiteit te werk, is reeds ’n ingewikkelde en soms gevaarlike taak. Maar om te sien waar die fout lê nog voordat dit ’n gevaar word, is ’n kuns. Mnr Johan Deysel van Mopani Electrical in Tzaneen is ’n man wat die gevaar kan sien nog voordat dit ’n krisis word. Maar hoe sien mens enige gevaar of onderbrekings in kabels of masjienerie lank voordat dit gebeur? Daarvoor moes Deysel ’n kursus van twee weke in Johannesburg bywoon. Dit was nie ’n gewone, eenvoudige kursus vir enige elektrisiën nie. Die kursus is deur die Infraspection Institute, die oudste onafhanklike opleidingsinstituut van termograwe in die wêreld, wat in die VSA gesetel is, aangebied. Deysel het vlak 1 en 2 voltooi, wat hom R30 000 gekos het. Infrarooi termografie behels die gebruik van ’n termiese beeldkamera om termiese (hitte) lesings van die hele oppervlak van

enige voorwerp of masjien te neem, sonder dat dit afgeskakel of onderbreek moet word. Die gebruik van dié proses is veral in elektriese, meganiese en strukturele stelsels van toepassing, waar inspeksie en assessering van belang is.

By dié driefase-koppeling kan duidelik gesien word dat abnormale hitte op die middelste fase voorkom. Die termografiese verslag dui die prioriteit aan en hoe dringend die fout dan herstel behoort te word

In an effort to eradicate poverty officials of the department of social development in Limpopo visited the Mhlaba head kraal outside Tzaneen, with the purpose of introducing the community to the sustainable livelihood program. The program will replace the food parcels initiative, which allegedly was unsustainable. A selected number of community members who were identified through profiling of 57 032 families conducted in 2009, received donations to help kick start their businesses. Equipment fitting the catego-

ries of catering, sewing, farming, carpentry, hair dressing and welding was handed over by the officials, and people received gas stoves, sewing machines, tankers, electric saws, salon equipment and welding equipment based on the identified skills and needs. The Mayor of the GTM, Ms Dikeledi Mmetle, said the GTM would adopt the department’s strategy of doing away with food parcels. She encouraged women to realise their power and to use it to bring change in their families and communities in general. The community was asked to use the equipment for the benefit of their families and community as well.

Die tegnologie kan ook in verskeie ander gebiede aangewend word, maar vir Deysel is dit ’n belangrike komponent van sy werksaamhede. Hy kan nou foute met akkuraatheid uitwys, voordat dit lei tot onklaarheid. Hierdie vaardigheid word veral deur die groter versekeraars vereis, wanneer groot sakeondernemings, soos supermarkte en fabrieke, van elektrisiteitvoorsiening en meganika afhanklik is. So ver vasgestel kon word, is Deysel die enigste termograaf in Limpopo. Wat sy kwalifikasie nou so gepas maak, is dat sy dienste maklik bekom kan word, pleks van termograwe van Gauteng of selfs Kaapstad, en teen hoë onkoste, te ontbied. Hy is ook met ’n Fluke Ti25-kamera ter waarde van R120 000 toegerus. Hy beplan om later vlak 3, die laaste vlak in die kursus en wat alles oor veiligheid behels, te doen. Vlak 3 word egter tans net in die buiteland aangebied. Deysel kan by 082 414 7798 of 015 307 5813 of per e-pos by mopanielectrical@msn.com gekontak word.

Stanford Lake College will stage their annual school production on 22 September. It promises to be an eventful evening with drama, music and dance. The play is based on the hit movie “The Breakfast club” and will take many back to their school days. The cast (photo) consists of the usual bunch of school kids sitting Saturday detention: a drama queen, a jock, a nerd, a weirdo and, of course, a know-it-all Bully. Added to this well known cast is a gallery of animals, commenting and criticising the action they are watching. This addition to the original script was entirely written by Stanford pupils and provides an excellent showcase for their creativity and ingenuity. Come join this fun-filled evening on 22 September at 18:30 in the Barnyard Theatre at Stanford Lake College. Tickets are available at the school front office, or cal Dawn Bragin on 015 276 6103/7 to book seats. Tickets are R80 per person, including light snacks!

Mugwazeni Secondary School at Letsitele is selling trees between 1 and 2,5 meter tall at only R40 per tree. The following trees are available: African Ebony, Marula, Acacia Fever, Silver cluster leaf, Umbrella thorn and White thorn. All seeds for the trees are collected from the area around the school. Please call Gavaza on 073 244 7859 or Nyiko on 073 672 8193 The school is currently going for its international eco award.

Graad 7-besoekers het baie pret geniet tydens die onlangse opedag by die Hoërskool Merensky. Die leerlinge en onderwysers het saamgewerk om die dag ‘n ervaring vir voornemende Plasies te maak. Tydens die opedag word gr 7’s van laerskole in die omgewing genooi om die skool te besoek, sodat hul kan sien wat dit bied.Die skool roem daarop dat hul ‘n alles-in-een skool is waar

balans, spanwerk en individualiteit die sleutels vir sukses is. Mev Koei het die besoekende gr 7’s verwelkom en elke leerling het ‘n verwelkomingspakkie ontvang, voordat hul op ‘n skooltoer geneem is.

Slimkop-planmakers vertel Leerlinge van die Hoërskool Merensky het aan die Keep a Dream se omgewingbewusmakingdag deelgeneem. Die tema was aardverwarming. Keep a dream is ‘n organisasie wat opheffingwerk in plaaslike agtergeblewe gemeenskappe doen. Die Merensky-leerlinge wat aan die Tritech deelgeneem het, het hul projekte by die omgewingbewusmakingdag aangebied. Van die leerlinge wat deelgeneem het was Loamé van Zyl, Margaret Ragophala, Andrea Devenish en Suné Raspel. Loame van Zyl het verduidelik hoe om ‘n huis met strooi mure wat goedkoop en baie goed geisoleerd is te bou. Hitte kan so binne gehou word in die winter, maar die huis is dan ook koel in die somer. Magaret Ragophala het vertel hoe elektrisiteit opgewek kan word met lopende water. Geen besoedeling deur giftige gasse van steenkoolkragstasies vernietig dan die omgewing nie. Andrea Devenish en Sune Raspel het elk deur hul navorsing die elektrisiteitskrisisse in die land bespreek en slim planne gehad om krag goedkoper op te wek.

Huweliksklokkies klingel in Plasieland

Die Hoërskool Merensky se gewilde blou gelukbringer, Mej Koei, het Maandag seremoniëel in die eg getree met Mnr Bulletjie. Me Koei ondersteun haar skool by sportbyeenkomste, kultuurfeeste en ander spesiale geleenthede. Sonder dat die leerders of personeel van die skool geweet het, het Mej Koei (nou mevrou) die skoot hoog deur gehad vir Bulletjie. Hy het besluit om sy hart te volg en is nou ‘n volwaardige Plasie. Die skool bied hulle opregte seënwense aan die egpaar.

Vanjaar se wenners is Mojo Maanase en Peter Seerane wat die ballonbars gewen het; De Wet Potgieter, wat ‘n nuwe rekord van 5,68 sek in die sakresies gestel het; Karel O’Neil, Armand Geldenhuys en Tiaan Roets (agter) was die wenners van die toutrek.

As more and more businesses attempt to move towards virtual workplaces, it is important to utilize the proper tools on the educational frontier as well. To make this transition a seamless one, Merensky High School recently introduced eBeam, an interactive whiteboard solution developed by Luidia, into some of their

classes. Here, a few students are at work on a project away from the class room, while delivering information to their fellow classmates on the interactive white board. This board enables scholars in- and outside the classroom to collaborate internally and with others using the latest interactive technology.

News from Giyani by Orlando Chauke

Women say “we’ve had enough of it” Armed with wheelbarrows, the women of Xihosani village near Giyani took it upon themselves and embarked on a road-fixing campaign as part of celebrating women’s month. This was done in anticipation of the approaching rain season, which often leaves the village isolated due to wet and slippery roads that keep public transport from entering the village. According to one of the residents, Ms Anna Baloyi, the residents have complained about the problem. She said passengers are dropped off half-way and they then have to walk home. “Sometimes you have parcels and then you have to call someone to help you carry your bags, ” explained Baloyi.

Xihosani women trying to fix roads in their village

Tired of complaining every time it rains, the women decided it would be better and faster if they did it themselves, in stead of waiting for government to come to their rescue. This prompted the idea of a road-fixing campaign filling up the potholes with whatever they could find, including soil, half-broken bricks and stones. Baloyi is one of the women who initiated the campaign to help improve the access into the village. “Unlike men, we women are the ones that suffer the most when there’s no access to the village, because we’re the ones that are expected to buy household food,” she said. “A man would give you money and you’d have to bring food to the table — no excuses,” she added. The road works were done by mostly unemployed women, with the help of a few men whose job it was to collect stones and half-broken bricks.

Villagers walk long distances to fetch drinking water It is early in the morning at the RDPs’ settlement in Mtititi village outside Giyani: women wake up and pack their buckets in the wheelbarrows to prepare for a plus or minus 5 km journey to the nearest village to fetch water. The journey takes them either through the bushes or along the main road to the nearest red-cross point used as animal buffer zone for villages around Mtititi. “It depends on where one resides… those that reside nearer the red-cross, which is also some kilometers away, fetch their water there,” explained Ms Anna Manganyi, one of the residents. According to the residents, this has been going on “for more than five months now,” since their local borehole broke down. “Nobody is helping us — we’re forgotten people. The only time they know that we exist is when there are elections,” said Manganyi. “It’s too risky for women to cross the bushes alone to fetch water at Plantjie, but we have no choice, because we have families to care for,” she added. Other residents, however, said they don’t want the fixing of the

borehole only, but a new system that would be able to supply enough water in the village. “We’re actually tired of the borehole system — everyday is problematic,” said another resident, Mr John Chauke. “If not broken, the diesel has ran out. We don’t know why they don’t give us water from the pipeline that supply other villages and runs right past the village,” he said. When asked, the ward councillor in the village, Mr Joe Chabani, said “a technical problem in dealing with the broken pump complicates thing and “it proves very difficult for the technical team to repair it.” Meanwhile Thulamela municipality spokesperson Nndwamato Tshiila said ”we have requested the service of the district municipality to help fix the problem, and in the meantime we are sending water in tankers.

Agri MEC inspects redline areas The MEC for agriculture in Limpopo, Ms Dipuo Letsatsi Duba, is taking no chances to prepare for a possible outbreak of animal disease in the province as the summer season sets in. She visited several animal restriction centres, also known as redlines, in Mopani, to address staff and equip the guards with uniforms and communication devices to improve their communication while at work. The redlines area stretch from Phalaborwa to Musina and Botswana borders in the north and east of Limpopo. “This is where SA’s largest livestock is reared, and where a lot of infiltration by wild and foreign animals comes from,” explained Duba. She added that “the breakout of diseases such as foot and mouth, usually occur during summer rains”. She announced that houses are now being built in all the redline camps in Mopani and Vhembe, to ensure that rangers are ready and motivated to counter any disease outbreak. “The secret of any army is a basecamp… no army can be effective without a strong camp. The rangers are fighting a big war patrolling the borders,” it was said. The equipment and new houses would help a lot towards motivating the rangers to perform well.

The Deputy Minister for water and environmental affairs, Ms Rejoice Mabudafhasi, called on hawkers and taxi drivers to be in the forefront in the campaign against littering. Speaking during a launch of the greening and cleaning project in Giyani, Mabudafhasi said “everybody should be an ambassador of a clean environment”. “If you’re a taxi driver or a hawker you shouldn’t be afraid to tell those that buy from you that if they are finished drinking or eating whatever they bought, a dustbin is there,” she said. “In that way you’d be becoming an ambassador of the environment in which you live.” According to her taxi passengers were among the worst polluters of the environment. “These people don’t litter in town — they wait until the taxi gets to rural areas and then start throwing things through the windows, and this is why the taxi drivers should play a role in keeping our environment clean,” she said. The greening and cleaning project in Giyani alone cost R65,5 million, R39 million of which is part of Buyesela eco-towns being implemented by Indaloyethu, a public works extended programme that deals with cleaning of municipal areas. The rest of the money will go into developing of recreational areas in Giyani townships. This include the establishment of two recreational parks and a Buy-back centre, where used waste would be processed into other usable products. According to the minister, this project is currently being implemented in ten municipalities nationally, including Giyani and Thohoyandou in Limpopo. She added that under the social responsibility programme aimed to provide jobs for the poor, her department is currently implementing projects to the tune of R190,6 million in Limpopo. “This translates to 1 032 jobs,” she said. Giyani mayor Pat Hlungwani supported the minister’s call, saying no matter how much the government can try to promote cleanness, “it’s still up to people themselves to monitor where they live.”

care for themselves. Since then the kids have been living with a relative in a shack. But life was not easy for them, since their caretaker was unemployed and none of the kids received any form of help from government. This worried the premier most, who blamed it to the ignorance of the ward committee members and the councillor in the village. “This family should have

been discovered a long time ago if the ward councillor and the ward committee members were effective.” He urged the councillors to make sure that the family never goes hungry again. “Should there be, for whatever reason, a single day that those kids go to bed without food, you will lose your jobs.” Ms Anna Tivani, the caretaker, expressed her gratitude to the premier.

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

Cigarette smoke and alcohol can damage the health of unborn babies. Smoking by pregnant women is associated with low birth weight and premature birth, as well as higher rates of illness (cold, bronchitis, ear infections, etc), breathing problems, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in their babies. Birth defects of the heart, brain, and face are also more common among babies born to smokers. Children whose mothers smoked during pregnancy tend to be physically smaller than children of non-smokers, and may

continue to have higher rates of respiratory illnesses, such as asthma, for many years. The effects of drinking alcohol during pregnancy are also alarming. In fact, the consumption of alcohol during pregnancy is the leading cause of birth defects. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is a collection of defects that may include any combination of reduced growth (before or after birth), facial deformities, a small head (likely related to reduction of brain size), and abnormal behavioral development. So come on, if you are pregnant, you must stop smoking and drinking for your baby’s sake.

Moller is in laaste pylvak Die kranige vierwielmotorfietsgeesdriftige van die Hoërskool Merensky, Jaco Moller, het Saterdag aan die Devonshire Junior Nasionale wedren by Tweespruit in die Vrystaat deelgeneem. Hy ry vir PS Storm Racing op ’n Suzuki LTR450 en het tweede in die senior opeafdeling geëindig. Hy het nog in die laaste rondte van die wedren voorgeloop, maar is deur Bloemfonteiner Nicky Lombard verbygesteek. Dit was ’n klipperige roete wat die fiksheid en stamina van die deelnemers beproef het. Die wedren was vir deelnemers tussen sewe en sewentien jaar en het ongeveer drie ure geduur. Die laaste ronde in vanjaar se kampioenskap is op 8 Oktober naby Greytown in KwaZulu-Natal. Moller is tans agste op die punteleer. Hy het 123 punte, terwyl die voorloper op 161 punte staan. Die laaste wedren kan hom hoër op die punteleer laat eindig, mits hy wen. Die feit dat hy twee wedrenne in vanjaar se wedloop nie kon voltooi nie, het hom gekortwiek.

Vossie-krieket Stanfordians excel on is nog sterk SA level op koers Die Hoërskool Ben Vorster se tweede krieketspan het onlangs kragte met Merensky gemeet en met vyf paaltjies geseëvier. Schoeman Mynhardt het vier paaltjies laat kantel en Awie Engelbrecht drie om Merensky tot 134 lopies in hul 30 boubeurte te beperk. Kaptein Ernst Buys het 38 lopies aangeteken en die Vossies het die teiken in die 25ste boulbeurt gehaal. Die o.15A’s het Stanford Lake College oortuigend met 123 lopies getroef. Die Vossies het eerste gekolf en 211 lopies vir slegs twee paaltjies in hul 30 boulbeurte aangeteken. Regard Heiberg het 86 lopies gemoker en Roedolf Botes 57. Albei was onoorwonne. Stanford is na ete vir 88 lopies uitgeboul. Die Vossies se draaibouler Tiaan Vorster het vier paaltjies laat kantel. Die Vezi & de Beer Black Cap eerste span het eerste geboul teen Stanford Lake College. Goeie draaiboulwerk deur Dewald Joubert het aan hom vier paaltjies besorg en Matome Modiba het drie paaltjies ingepalm. Stanford is vir 122 uitgehaal. Die Vossies het met alle erns weggespring om die teiken te haal. Dewald Joubert het 44 lopies aangeteken en John Viljoen 51 onoorwonne lopies. Die Vossies het met sewe paaltjies geseëvier.

Marelise Vermeulen and Mikayla McDonald of Stanford Lake College represented Limpopo in the Inter Regional Equestrian Championships in Johannesburg recently.

Comrades ups its prize money

The reward at any race is definitely a motivating factor, more so for the top-notch competitors in the world’s greatest ultra-marathon, the Comrades Marathon. With this in mind, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has increased its monetary rewards for the 2012 leg by nearly twenty percent across the board. This translates into an astounding R2 653 700 in total cash prizes, the highest amount paid out in any SA road running fixture. The 2012 male and female winners will each run off with a first prize of R300 000 as opposed to the current award of R250 000, followed by a second position prize of R145 000 and R110 000 for third position versus the going amount of R120 000 and R90 000. In addition any man or woman breaking the current Comrades down run records held by Leonid Shvetsov and Frith van der Merwe respectively, will be paid R300 000 each, as well as other rewards should they qualify, like hotspot prizes and age categories. Encouragement for SA and KZN runners comes in the form of prizes for first SA male and female and first KZN male and female. Team prizes also go out to the winning teams who not only receive a lucrative cash prize, but also the hotly contested Gunga-Din Trophy. Entries for the 2012 edition of the iconic event is open and close on 1 December.
