Massive boost for Tzaneen economy Francois Aucamp

francois@bulletin.us.com

The Tzaneen economy is set to benefit from a massive capital investment for the development of a mining project at Nkowankowa. This follows an announcement this week by the developer, Ferrox Holdings, that US$1,7 billion (R14 billion) is required for developing the Tivani iron ore, titanium and vanadium mining project. The Johannesburg branch of the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Corporation Limited (HSBC) has been appointed exclusive financial advisor to Ferrox in the process of raising the capital. Once the regulatory matters, which are close to completion, have been finalised, construction of a US$450 million (R3 billion) iron ore concentrator will begin. This will have the capacity to process 11 metric tonnes of run-of-mine ore annually, producing 2,5 metric tonnes of concen-

trate annually at full production. Next is the construction of facilities to support additional beneficiation processes which may include an iron/steel smelting facility, estimated at an additional US$1,2 billion (R10 billion). The potential smelting facility is projected to produce 1,5 metric tons of pig iron or steel per annum, along with titanium and vanadium slag within 48 to 60 months of regulatory approval. It is envisioned that concentrate production will commence within the next 24 to 36 months with annual full production in 36 to 48 months. The company is also evaluating the production of 500 000 to 800 000 tonnes of ilmenite concentrate per annum, for the production of titanium dioxide The life of the mine is estimated to be approximately 23 years. The mine which is planned on the farm Mohlaba’s Location 567 LT with infrastructure on the farms Keulen 669 LT and Berlyn 670 LT will mine the minerals from

three opencast pits. Mr Brett Levick, senior vice-president of HSBC’s Johannesburg Branch, stated “We see this as a landmark project for the benefit of the people of the Limpopo Province and South Africa as a whole.” This announcement comes only months after Ferrox announced the execution of an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mboweni Brothers Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd (MBIH), in terms of which MBIH has agreed to acquire, on commercial terms, an interest of up to 20%

Many streetname signposts in Tzaneen are damaged or neglected. What are your impressions? Estie van Wyk Tzaneen was nog altyd ‹n pragtige, goed versorgde dorp, totdat die vandaliste kom oorneem het. Gerhard Visagie  Dit is ‘n kopseer omrede die munisipaliteit geld op bog spandeer en nie hul prioriteite regkry nie. Dis onaanvaarbaar en moet aangespreek word. Dit krap aan mens se trots. Lynette Bekker Marais  In Premierpark en Aquapark is dit werklik opsigtelik en is dit moeilik om die straatname te eien! Laat my ook wonder of die naamborde op standaard is/was — ek vermoed dit is dalk korter as die toelaatbare hoogte! Dis die rede hoekom dit maklik is vir die vandale om dit by te kom! Danielle Raaths Selfde in Duiwelskloof! Ons was in ‘n straat wat nie eers ‘‘bestaan‘‘ nie! Mariana En David Venter  Dis nie meer ‘n dorp nie, dis nou Tzaneen lokasie. Mariana Stoltz Esterhuyzen Ek het daar groot geword en dit was idillies, maar nou terleurstellend. Willie van der Merwe  Pateties.

Die wyfie van Tzaneen het nog probeer troos met piesangs en appels, maar die leeus het hul neuse vir die vrugte opgetrek... • R3 miljoen is in die meeste mense se woordeskat “groot geld”, maar dit blyk dat dit vir sommige mense kleingeld is. Slaan ‘n slag en skryf dit af... met bene en al... • Nee, die spreekwoord lui “snuf in die

neus kry, vir as mens agterdogtig raak. Nie snuif in die neus kry nie. Dus: mense kry snuf in die neus oor die slag van Tzaneen... • As mense bolle wil rol daar waar die bolle gerol word, kan dit ‘n aardige petalje afgee... • Hoe werk dit? ‘n Man maak gróót skuld, dan misluk die yslike projek met yslike verliese vir almal. Dan koop jy groot in ‘n nuwe projek en jy verkoop dit vir baie groter terug aan die aanvanklike verkoper met belastingbetalersgeld. Boys (en seker maar girls ook) , as julle dié een kan uitwerk is julle nogal goed...

SAPS care4kids The Letsitele police staged a door to door child protection awareness campaign in Nkambako Village. The theme for the campaing was derived from the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child”, which emphasises the role of the wider community in keeping children safe. The spokesperson of the Letsitele SAPS, const Mabunda, said their aim was to create awareness about protecting children and empowering communities to protect children against all forms of exploitation and to partner with the police in fighting crime. Capt Mogoboya urged the community to always know the whereabouts of their children. — Martina Jege martina@bulletin.us.com

Historic train in Tzaneen to be moved — see page 7 The aircraft for this year’s fire season have arrived at the Letaba Fire Protection Association. Both the helicopter and spotter pilots, Messrs Paul Bester and Siem Venter respectively, arrived in Tzaneen on Friday (last week). They were both in the Western Cape for that area’s fire season. All predictions indicate that this year is going to be a very busy fire season, due to the dry conditions, less rainfall and a few years’ of undergrowth that has been left. The fire prohibition starts on 1 August and all landowners are urged to make their fire breaks as early as possible and to report burning to Mr Butch Baker at the Fire Ops on 076 550 2260.

Council was not misled The senior communications officer of the GTM, Mr Neville Ndlala, pointed out to the Bulletin that a misunderstanding between him and one of our reporters resulted in him being misquoted. In a report referring to the dilemma regarding the municipal manager’s appointment, he was quoted as having said the council was misled. Ndlala says he used the word misled in another contex and in fact had said the council was ill-advised. We don’t have a problem giving him the benefit of the doubt and hope that this will set the record straight.

Sy toestand is egter steeds baie ernstig en hy word nog onder sterk verdowing in die hospitaal se hoësorgeenheid verpleeg. Die dokters beskou hom steeds as nie buite gevaar nie.

He told the police that he got the cow from a shop. The police went to the shop and found refrigerators with blood; however, the shop owner was nowhere to be found. Yesterday the shop owner alerted the police about a vehicle with a slaughtered cow in the boot. The police went there and caught two men red-handed. The shop owner was also arrested.

Myn-inspuiting

Die nuus dat ‘n massiewe nuwe mynbouprojek naby Nkowankowa ontwikkel gaan word, kom op ‘n goeie tyd vir Tzaneen. Die plaaslike ekonomie is ver van so gesond as wat dit behoort te wees en sakelui oor ‘n breë spektrum wurg tans. Die ingrepe van die nasionale regering in Limpopo se sake was beslis nie onnodig nie, maar dit het wel ontwrigting gebring. Talle kleiner ondernemings sukkel om geld wat aan hulle deur Limpopo se regering verskuldig is, te kry. Kontantvloeiprobleme is sorgwekkend vir sakelui. Die nie-betaling van ondernemings bring ook mee dat geld wat in omloop moes gewees het, steeds in die skatkis van die regering lê. Dit het ‘n negatiewe uitwerking op sakebedrywighede. Om dié redes kan die mynbouplan groot verligting bring. Dit gaan vir seker ‘n klomp nuwe werkgeleenthede skep. Groot bedrae gaan hier belê word en plaaslike verskaffers sal baat. Infrastruktuur sal verbeter word en met so ‘n groot belegging kan verwag word dat die instandhouding van infrastruktuur ook sal verbeter. Ons is trots dat ons weereens die goeie nuus na ons omgewing eksklusief kon aankondig, maar bowenal is ons dankbaar dat ons omgewing ‘n gesonde geldinspuiting gaan kry.

Die GTM en die nuus

Ons sal volgende week verder rapporteer oor die Groter Tzaneen Munisipaliteit se skielike geheimsinnigheid en/of gesteldheid dat “aansoek” gedoen moet word om inligting te bekom. Intussen betreur ons hul sinnelose besluit

Groot stryd Roy Hurter van Tzaneen skryf per e-pos: Die groot stryd tussen Noord en Suid is voor die deur. Ek sorg dat daar genoeg koeldrank(is mos al amper 17 jaar “droog”) en “chips” vir die wedstryd vanaand is. En ek vertel met berge geesdrif vir my jongste dat ons vanaand vir die blouspan skreeu, die pienkes is nie ons s’n nie. Dis mos vaderlike plig om hom “kultuur” te leer! Toe alles op die “checklys” na gegaan en gereël is, word ek stil in afwagting vir die “Stryd der stryde”. En dink terug aan die rugby wat ek saam met my pa nog oor die radio geluister het. Gerhardt Viviers se lewendige en beskrywende kommentaar, so asof jy die “game” sien voor jou afspeel, my pa, vooroor gebuk, so asof hy die uitsending eerste wil hoor. En moet tog nie die fout maak om kommentaar te lewer tydens die wedstryd nie! Dis waarvoor rustyd daar is. En my ma wat koffie aandra vir almal, behalwe ons kinders, want ons kan self koeldrank aanmaak. Die braaivleis-vuur was klaar gepak en reg om brand te steek, Dadda het geglo jy braai vroeg-aand en teen 7-uur is jy klaar geeet. ‘n Groot en streng ou man, sonder fieterjasies, die “what you see is what you get”soort. Wat nooit, sover ek kan onthou, ons seuns gesoen-groet het nie, maar sy lewe sou gee vir ons. Wat n bars hou met sy afgebreekte-piesangtros-hande kon slaan as jy stout was, maar net so slae kon uitdeel as iemand dit sou waag om sy kinders te na te kom. Wat vir geen duiwel gestuit het nie, die skoolhoof en die predikant inkluis, maar daar moes altyd genoeg kos wees “sou iemand kom kuier terwyl ons eet” ‘n Handvaardige man wat enigies kon maak. Gehou van spoed maar “onthou, die ander ou op die pad is die blerrie fool” ‘n Siek ou man wat jare later, op my verjaarsdag, in my arms oorlede is. Vergeet van Vadersdag, ek mis jou vandag, Dadda.

Tongknopers / Taalgoggas Ons gesels vandag verder oor leenwoorde: Uit Latyn: exempli gratia (e.g.) = byvoorbeeld; gaudeamus igitur = laat ons vrolik wees; ibidem (ibid) = op dieselfde plek of bladsy; in absentia = in die afwesigheid, by verstek; in camera = in die geheim of agter geslote deure; in vitro =

buite die liggaam of in ‘n kunsmatige omgewing; incognito = as onbekende; inter alia = onder andere of onder meer; ipso facto = uit die aard van die saak; ipso jure = regtens; lingua franca = omgangstaal; locus standi = reg om in te meng; male fide = kwade trou; modus

operandi = werkwyse; mora morae = versuim; mutatis mutandis = met die nodige veranderings; non compos mentis = ontoerekenbaar; nisi (soos in “bevel nisi”) = voorlopige hofbevel; per se = as sodanig; persona non grata = ongewenste persoon; post mortem = nadoods. Word vervolg

Ek kyk op na die berge: waarvandaan sal daar vir my hulp kom? My hulp kom van die Here wat hemel en aarde gemaak het. Hierdie woorde van Psalm 121 is seker van die bekendste in die Bybel. Gewoonlik dink ons oor die betekenis van “die berge” waar allerlei gevare skuil en hoe die Here dan ons hulp is. In die openingswoorde van die Psalm skuil daar vir my `n ander belangrike boodskap, naamlik om te erken `n mens het hulp nodig: “waarvandaan sal daar vir my hulp kom?” Daar is baie mense wat hulp nodig het, maar wat om een of ander rede nie op die punt wil kom om te sê: “Waar sal my hulp vandaan kom nie?” Soms is dit hardkoppigheid. Soms is dit trots. Soms is dit onkunde. In ons kleintyd was ons almal afhanklik van hulp. Ons het tog nie self ons doeke omgeruil nie! In ons volwasse lewe lyk ons doeke anders en dikwels kan ons dit steeds nie self ruil nie. Daar is doeke van alkoholafhanklikheid, onbeheersde woede, huweliksontrou, die rou oor die dood van `n geliefde, kleptomania en die lys kan nog baie langer word. Soms versmoor hierdie doeke ons, maar ons ploeter voort. Die Here wat hemel en aarde gemaak het, gebruik mense om ons doeke te ruil. Daar is vriende wat graag sal luister en ondersteun. Daar is mense wie se beroep dit is om doeke re ruil, soos sielkundiges, maatskaplike werkers, beraders, predikante/pastore en dokters.

Letters • Briewe skryf: Ek het die afgelope tyd die skrywes van Roy Hurter en Luke Perkins gelees aangaande die DA se klaarblyklike ongevoeligheid vir die lot van 18 ou mense. Ek voel genope om die feite korrek te stel. Die TV nuus het duidelik ‘n ander agenda. Die DA word telkens in ‘n slegte lig gestel. ‘n Goeie voorbeeld is die Openbare Beskermer se onlangse verslag oor die kommunikasie tenders wat weer eens eensydiglik aangebied is in die nuus, maar dit net ter stawing. Die punt is dat beide die briefskrywers nie daagliks hul koerante deeglik lees nie. In die Beeld van 11 Mei 2012 het Hendrika Kruger DA-woordvoerder oor maatskaplike ontwikkeling, die feite in ‘n brief reg gestel en ek haal die brief aan: “Die owerhede — die departemente van maatskaplike ontwikkeling en die munisipaliteit — het opdrag gegee dat La Reynette gesluit word omdat daar nie aan die wetlike aspekte voldoen word nie. Ek wil dit as DA-lid onomwonde stel dat ek die bestuur van La Reynette bygestaan het om uitstel vir die sluiting te kry en om die sentrum te registreer om ‘n gelisensieerde bejaarde sorg sentrum te bedryf en sodoende te verseker dat die pasiënte nie ontwrig word nie. Dit is immers onwettig as die instansie nie geregistreer is nie en die DA kan nie wetteloosheid goedpraat nie.” Die woordvoerder meld dan verder dat daar vergaderings gehou gaan word met verskeie rolspelers om ‘n forum te fasiliteer om die tekort aan bejaarde sorg in Mogale City aan te spreek. Dit gaan vir die DA oor die beskerming van bejaardes wat deur ongelisensieerde instansies versorg word wat moontlik nie aan die standaarde voldoen nie. Wetgewing is nie daar om selektief toegepas te word nie, maar moet konsekwent toegepas word deur en op almal, indien nie

waarvoor het ons dan wette? Mense is gou om negatiewe beriggewing raak te sien omdat dit sensasioneel is. Postiewe berigte word dikwels nie raak gesien nie. Is dit nie maar ‘n teken van ons negatiewe ingestelheid deesdae nie? Mens is gou om negatiewiteit raak te sien en te vra “hoe kan die DA”, dit is dan ook sekerlik die media se taktiek om sensasie te wek, en wat is nou beter as ‘n lekker ou skinder berig! • Ai, ons kan maar nie die versoeking weerstaan om te veralgemeen oor die stoute media nie, né.

Leadership problems Raymond Hlungwani, 0738551519, Communication, Journalism and Political scholar, writes per e-mail: Greetings. This is an opinion piece and I hope you will help me, and also add here and there. I write aboiut what I see. Checking the current state of rural and township development, a lot still need to be done and implemented while we all know that the government has championed many programmes ranging from RDP, feedingschemes, jobs and project opportunities. What is killing our country, villages and state of townships is deployment without credentials. Populism, lack of basic education and enjoyment of support without content are the only masses of destruction that we have ignored so many years, hence there are never ending strikes in our country today. Ward Councillors, mayors and PR councillors have been appointed with checking credentials and this has led to poor performance and lack of practical implementations. How many times we have appointed ward Councillors who lacks political content, political education and basic understanding of

running the villages and townships? Does being in politics for a period of twenty years means a person should be given a platform to run a certain territory? Let’s go back to the drawing board and organize our plans. What is wrong with empowering youth. I am not contradicting the appointment of old people, but history has proven them wrong. The only illness that South Africa is suffering today is not over crowded, but poor leadership skills under poor leaders. Go to rural areas and townships, and check the number of ward Councillors and PR councillors, mayors and the civic groups, majority of people who are holding positions they lack the vision and mission of leadership. People have been campaigning for positions because they want history to remember them, but what do we say about the collective society? Are they allergic of being part of history in print? Basic delivery like toilets and water are still issues in rural areas and townships. People have been appointed without checking whether they have what it takes. We appoint people to run our areas and it takes them long walk to Promised Land to brief the society about the programme of action. Generational mix should not be ignored. The tendency of excluding youth and scholars to community meetings should be erased and youth must be given a platform to express their educational skills. During the old ages, elders use to have communities meetings where they will go and decide what to choose between UNIVERSITY and DAM, and they would all pick a DAM, because they believe it is better than the university. This practice was always happening because of shortage of leadership skills and vision. This is the right time to check capacity, credentials and balance of thoughts. Let’s deploy with a vision.

The Greater Tzaneen Municipal Mayor, Ms Dikeledi Mmetle, on Friday hosted twenty pupils from Phusela High School as part of the Youth Parliament project in the GTM’s council chamber. The pupils engaged with the major and raised issues they are facing at their schools. Mmetle motivated the pupils and explained some of the opportunities provided by the office of the mayor. Seen in the photo, are some of the pupils of Phusela High School taking notes of what the GTM Mayor was saying. Photo: Retha Nel

Mr M H Shihangule from Shiluvana sent us this photo, with the following comment: “I enjoyed reading your article in Bulletin of 25 May 2012. Where do you turn at night when you come to the attached road sign?” Sadly we cannot be of help to Mr Shihangule, since this is obviously another of the many mad things to be seen on and next to our roads these days!

A little piece of history at the SPCA in Tzaneen will be finding a new home soon. The monstrous antique SA Railways train carriage has been sold, after serving as the SPCA’s office and storeroom for just over thirty years. During the 1980’s Tzaneen’s municipality donated a piece of land to the SPCA. Although they already had kennels available for the orphaned animals, the staff needed an office and storage space. They soon found it in an unconventional form. The Politsi train station advertised a carriage they wanted to sell for R4 000. The SPCA’s committee went to view it and decided to turn it into their much needed offices. The blue train carriage has since become a part of Tzaneen’s rich history. Moving the enormous carriage to the SPCA’s premises would, however, not be child’s play. Mr Chris Prinsloo, the station manager, lent a helping hand with

the transportation. With great effort the carriage was moved through a back road (where the new industrial area is now), as it could not be dragged through town. The carriage with its old seats, floors and shelves still intact, was used throughout the decades until it later became a risk for the staff and

visitors. A new, more stable office was built for the SPCA, and it was decided to sell the carriage. The funds will be used to build more kennels. The carriage will, however, still serve a noble purpose. According to Ms Zelda Jansen van Vuuren, owner of Khensani Scrap Yard, it will be renovated and used as an office on their premises. — Amelia de Ridder amelia@bulletin.us.com

NTK se Tzaneen-tak kry nuwe bestuurder NTK Tzaneen het ‘n nuwe man aan die stuur van sake: Mnr Frikkie van Vuuren, ‘n heel ervare bestuurder wat goed vertroud met die boerdery-sektor is. Van Vuuren is van Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal en het verskeie tersiêre kwalifikasies aan die Universiteit van die Witwatersrand behaal. Na sy studies het hy eers by Afgri gewerk, toe as areakoördineerder van risikobestuur vir TWK (wat Afgri se KwaZuluNatal-takke gekoop het) en daarna is hy na die hoofkantoor in Piet Retief verplaas. Hy het toe vir dertien maande as takbestuurder van die hardewarewinkel daar gewerk, voordat hy aansoek vir ‘n pos by NTK gedoen het. Van Vuuren, sy vrou en twee kinders het Tzaneen toe getrek, toe hy by NTK aangestel is.

Van Vuuren is ‘n kranige sportman wat onder meer Cravenweekrugby gespeel het. Hy was vyf jaar lank ‘n lid van KwaZuluNatal se hengelspan. Hy geniet ook sy deelname aan boogskiet baie. Wat die winkel betref, is klantediens baie belangrik vir Van Vuuren. Sy doelwit is om sy personeel en die boeresake in die omgewing te laat groei. Sy personeel gaan ook opleiding ontvang, sodat hulle goed vertroud met die produkte in die winkel kan wees en klante uitstekende diens kan bied. Hy wil ook graag noem dat mnr Kobus Oosthuizen steeds by NTK werk en tans heelgoedere verkoop. Hy bedank al NTK se klante vir hul volgehoue ondersteuning. — Retha Nel retha@bulletin.us.com

Suksesverhaal

- Tzaneentak -

boere wat geen fasiliteite gehad het om diesel in grootmaat te koop nie Daar was soveel belangstelling en navrae dat hy later ‘n vragmotorbestuurder in diens geneem het om elke dag aflewerings te doen. Verbruikersgetalle het vinnig gegroei as gevolg van die flink, vinnige diens en die gerief om die produk in hul eie tenks beskikbaar te hê. Paraffien kon nou verkoop word in gebiede wat nooit voorheen toegang tot paraffien gehad het nie Ondernemings in die omgewing het ook begin gebruik maak van die gerieflike manier om diesel en paraffien te bekom. Caltex het ook baie bestaande kliënte aangemoedig om by GT verspreiders te koop aangesien hulle vinniger bedien sou word. BF Distributors het ‘n klein begin gehad. Op 8 Desember 1981 het Frans en Tokkie Pieterse in Louis Trichardt met ‘n klein besigheid genaamd GT Verspreiders begin. Frans was op daardie staduim die depotbestuurder by Caltex in Polokwane en het ‘n geleentheid raakgesien. Omdat Caltex se vragmotors nie klein hoeveelhede in die area kon aflewer nie is Frans die geleentheid gegun om self ‘n vragmotor aan te skaf en aflewerings in die omgewing te doen. In sy vrye tyd het Frans aflewerings begin doen en tenks opgerig by winkels wat paraffien wou verkoop en by

Om die groeiende aanvraag te kan hanteer moes nog vragmotors aangeskaf word en ‘n perseel met kantore moes opgerig word. Caltex was bereid om pompe en tanks vir die verskaffing van diesel en paraffien aan die publiek op die nuwe perseel te installeer. In 1987 het die onderneming uitgebrei en is BF Distributors, die tak in Polokwane, geopen. Die aanvraag na brandstof het so vinnig gestyg dat Caltex nie kon voorbly om brandstof te voorsien nie. Dit het gelei tot die opening van Franco Bulk transport. Frans se seun, Jaco, was hier aan die stuur van sake en het begin om brandstof van Pretoria na Limpopo aan te ry. Aflewerings strek oor ‘n wye area, onder meer Musina, Tshipise, Ponddrift, Alldays, Vivo, Waterpoort, Levubu, Sibasa en

Water knows no colour or political affiliation. We call upon our people to stay alert to groupings that want to use them to achieve political gaols by making them to take to streets or join marches in case of shortage of water. This was the message from the Mopani District Municipality’s Mayor, Mr Joshua Matlou, when he delivered his IDP budget speech for the 2012/13 financial year at a special council sitting in Lenyenye. Mayors and councillors from municipalities in Mopani as well as community members attended the meeting. Matlou said the adoption of the IDP is important for service delivery. “We should adopt the IDP in order to integrate all developmental plans of our municipality, and aligning resources with the implementation program.” Shortage of water from different communities featured high on the IDP presentation. He said water is an essential source of life and the MDM is concerned that some communities still share water with animals. He announced several infrastructure development programs, aimed at refurbishing and upgrading water plants to enable communities to access water. He announced that R36 million is set aside to help with water shortages in rural communities. He added that the MDM would employ consultants in all local municipalities to do an assessment of reservoirs and bulk lines, to get technical information. He says boreholes will be used as temporary measure to deal with the water crisis. R111 million would be used for construction of roads and bridges. Matlou said roads will be upgraded to minimise potholes. Projects to be expected include rebuilding of Muhlava Road and tarring of 6 km of the Thabina to Maake road. Matlou also said that although many communities have electricity, the MDM is concerned with the extent of illegal connections. He says the MDM have measures in place to erect flood lights in different communities’ areas. He emphasised the need for people to acquire education and skills, saying “education is essential for economic growth”. He

Water is a big problem

said R2,1 million for bursaries is set aside to assist pupils from disadvantaged families to study further. He also urged elders who missed school to consider going back. “The MDM remain committed to obtain a clean audit in 2014 and qualified people will be appointed in managerial positions. We support the municipal system amendment act’s call for the appointment of senior managers with relevant skills, qualification and experience. This will enhance our commitment to sound financial management,” Matlou said. Opposition parties, including the DA, has welcome d the IDP and budget. However, Cope’s Mr Sello Mokoede expressed concern with the implementation, saying putting together a budget is one thing, but to implement it requires capacity and skills. Matlou launched a scathing attack on Samwu (SA Municipal Workers’ Union), describing their recent protest action against the MDM as misguided. Samwu’s Giyani branch accused the MDM of practicing nepotism and tribalism. — Percy Mthombeni percy@bulletin.us.com

Stanford Lake College wins derby against St Dunstan’s On a weekend when the unpredictable mountain weather could have been a challenge, both Friday afternoon and Saturday were glorious sunshine days providing a perfect setting for Stanford Lake College and St Dunstan’s College to engage in their annual Derby. Teams squared up to play tennis, chess, netball, rugby, hockey and take each other on in mountain biking. St Dunstan’s won the tennis convincingly. They also won the chess by 4-2. Stanford turned the tables in the mountain biking and the 32 km race was won by Tristan Oliff. Joshua Selfe finished second with Benno Prinsloo coming in third. Abigail Joubert was the first girl in, despite a broken chain forcing her to run the last kilometre pushing her bike. Ruth White was second. On Saturday the first rugby team enjoyed a 59-22 victory over St Dunstan’s. Terry Tomes had his best kicking game of the sea-

High intensity functional training versus normal isolated training High intensity functional training is a full body training method using functional exercises and usually performed in intervals or circuit formats. After an intense full body session your body’s metabolism is increased by up to an average of 9% for up to 3 days after the session (due to repair of muscle tissue, etc). Therefore if a session is performed every other day, using this method, your metabolism will be in increased throughout the week. With the increase in metabolism more calories/energy is consumed which is favourable to burn fat, increase lean body mass and a better quality of life. Normal isolated training is a form of training where there is a focus on a couple of muscle groups per session (mainly adopted by body-

builders). With the decreased number of muscle groups active through movements, less energy is used throughout the session which isn’t as an effective method of training if your primary goal is to burn fat, lose weight and gain lean muscle.

Olympians hone skills in Tzaneen Jean Aucamp

The SA Olympic rowing squad is in their final stages of preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games in London in July and August. And it is all happening in Tzaneen. An initial group of ten are currently staying on Gavin Stanford’s farm, adjacent to the Ebenezer Dam, but the group will grow as more rowers join this final training camp by the end of the week. The group will spend a few weeks training on the Ebenezer and Tzaneen dams, perfecting their technique and skill. According to their coach and manager, Mr Roger Barrow, the Ebenezer and Tzaneen dams are ideal training grounds for the rowers, as the water is clear and calm and it’s not as cold here as in other regions in South Africa. Barrow says that along with these favourable training conditions, a combination of affordable accommodation and easy access to necessities in nearby towns are important. The lightweight men’s four consist of Lawrence Ndlovu, John Smith, Matthew Brittain and James Thompson and Naydene Smith and Lee-Ann Persse form the women’s pair. The group will be joined by amongst others the SA Junior team later this month.
