MARYKE SWART ’n Jongman (23) en sy vriendin (18) het Sondagoggend op die R45 verongeluk, twee jaar nadat sy pa daar naby gesterf het. Cheslin Venneal (23) en sy meisie, Gaynor Malan (18) is omstreeks 02:00 Sondagoggend dood in ’n trompop botsing op die R45, kort na die R301 Wemmershoek-afdraai. Twee weke gelede het Elizabeth Roussouw (36), mede-eienaar van die Col’Cacchio restaurant op Franschhoek, ook op die R45 duskant L’Ormarins verongeluk. Volgens inligting het Venneal bestuur. Hy, Malan en nog drie passasiers het van Groendal in die rigting van Simondium gery, waar Venneal en Malan woon. ’n Hyundai Getz was in die rigting van Franschhoek op pad, en het teen hul motor gebots. Die bestuurder van die Getz, ’n 25jarige vrou, het ernstige beserings opgedoen en is na Mediclinic Paarl geneem.

Volgens ’n bron het sy na bewering ’n breinfloute (blackout) gehad en kan nie onthou wat gebeur het nie. Venneal was reeds oorlede toe nooddienspersoneel by die toneel opdaag. Malan, wat langs hom gesit het, het nog geleef. Ten spyte van pogings van paramedici om haar by te bring, is sy kort daarna oorlede. Twee passasiers het beserings opgedoen en is na Paarl-hospitaal geneem. Die derde passasier was glo nie meer op die toneel toe nooddienspersoneel daar opdaag nie. Die twee beseerdes is reeds uit Paarl-hospitaal ontslaan. Cheslin se pa, Christo, het op 1 Januarie 2012 ook verongeluk – baie naby aan Sondag se ongelukstoneel. Cheslin het by sy ma, Marlene, suster Chrisadia en haar seun Christopher (11 maande) op die plaas Plaisir de Merle by Simondium gewoon. “Nou is net ons drie oor,” het sy gesê.

Die impak van die botsing het al­ bei voertuie erg beskadig en wrak­ stukke is wyd versprei. FOTO: KURT MASKE

Volgens Marlene was Cheslin erg oor sy susterskind en kan sy sien die kindjie mis hom. Cheslin het in 2010 matriek geskryf aan die Kylemore Sekondêre Skool en het sedertdien op kontrakbasis by die plaas gewerk.

“Hy was van kleins af ’n rustige, Japie, en vier broers oorleef. ) ’n Huisdiens word Saterdag om stil mens. Soos hy grootgeword het was hy lief vir grappe maak.

Haaskraalpad eis 1, 20 beseer

Motoriste wat die Paarl besoek, sit die afgelo­ pe paar weke ekstra lank vas weens die pars­ seisoen wat in volle gang is. Trekkers met parswaens is die groot sondaars wat motoris­ te se kopsere vererger. Indien jy ongelukkig genoeg is om teen 20 km/h agter een vas te sit, beoefen maar net geduld. ) Die plaaslike Boland­krieketliga geniet sy jaarlikse blaaskans terwyl daar nou gefokus word op T 20­blitskrieketwedstryde. Onder­ steuners kan uitsien na opwinding wanneer rondte 11­aksie op 15 Maart hervat.

Plakstuk Die sesde plakstuk in die Paarl Post Plak­vir­ jou­Sak­kompetisie, waarin lesers R1 500 kontant kan wen, asook ’n R2 000­geskenk­ bewys van Pick n Pay Paarl Mall, is versteek binne vandeesweek se Paarl Post. Die kompe­ tisie sluit om 10:00 op Vrydag 7 Maart.

MARYKE SWART ’n Vrou is dood en 20 ander plaaswerkers beseer in ’n ongeluk verlede week op die Haaskraalpad naby Wellington. Die seisoenwerkers was op 19 Februarie omstreeks 20:30 vanaf die plaas Hoogenfontein, in die rigting van Wellington onderweg toe die vragmotor waarop hulle gery het ’n sloot getref het en werkers van die vragmotor afgeslinger is. Dit blyk asof dié vragmotor ’n ander vragmotor op die Haaskraalpad probeer verbysteek het toe die bestuurder beheer daaroor verloor het. Sowat 13 ambulanse, waarvan drie uit die Paarl, is na die toneel ontbied. Die 26-jarige Noncela Melane van Mbekweni is op die toneel dood, terwyl drie ander vroue ernstige beserings opgedoen het.

Robert Daniels, hoof kommunikasiebeampte van EMS-nooddienste, het gesê nog 17 mense het minder ernstige beserings opgedoen en is na onderskeidelik Paarl-hospitaal en Mediclinic Paarl geneem vir behandeling. Die vragmotor was glo op pad om werkers by hul huise te gaan aflaai. Sabelo Mpana berig dat volgens een van die passasiers, Nobuzwe Samente was hulle skaars vyf minute op die vragmotor toe die bestuurder beheer verloor en die pad verlaat het. Samente sê mense is afgeslinger soos wat die vragmotor bome op die pad getref het. Samente is vir ’n beenbreuk in Paarl-hospitaal behandel en is reeds ontslaan. Melane se vriend, Wanda Juwele, die pa van haar 10 maande oue babadogter, Lelam, het gesê hy het haar die oggend gesien voor sy

werk toe is, en eers die aand nadat hy van nagskof af gekom het die “slegte nuus” by iemand gehoor. Volgens hom het nòg die polisie, nòg iemand van haar werk hom oor haar dood ingelig. “Ek dink nog steeds sy gaan enige oomblik deur die deur loop.” Die Bergrivier Tafeldruif-produsentevereniging (BTPV) het in ’n verklaring gesê die vragmotor was nie oorlaai nie, is padwaardig en dat die bestuurder ’n geldige bestuurderslisensie sowel as ’n PDP het. Die bestuur van Hoogenfontein het werkers die volgende dag afgegee om hul mede-werkers te ondersteun. ’n Klag van strafbare manslag word deur Wellington-polisie ondersoek. * A season worker was killed and several others injured after the driver of the truck they were travelling on lost control and hit a ditch on the Haaskraal Road.

The safety of shoppers at Paarl Mall is in question after armed robbers gained easy access to the mall on Sunday and robbed a prominent cellphone shop. Despite the mall being abuzz with people, shoppers and mall staff were oblivious to the armed robbery taking place right under their noses. According to information, three female personnel were on duty at MTN when a man walked into the shop at about 14:30. One of the employees was attending to the only client in the shop, and the man approached a second employee. He showed her that he was carrying a firearm. He motioned to two accomplices who were standing outside, and they also entered the shop. They told the employee to go to the back room and instructed her to open the safe. Meanwhile, the first robber waited in the shop with the other employees and the client. “The suspects removed all the iPhones, tablets and laptops, placed them in plastic bags and left the store. The suspects fled

the mall in a vehicle,” said Capt Louise du Plessis, the police spokesperson. Paarl Mall confirmed the incident, stating, “Paarl Mall’s on-site security suspected suspicious activity and did excellent work by securing the registration details of the escape vehicle, as well as capturing a clear description of the robbers. No injuries were sustained and the incident is being investigated by the South African Police Service.” Paarl Mall’s Centre Manager, Faizah Behardien, said she is pleased with the level of efficiency with which the mall’s security staff handled the situation. “Safety and security at Paarl Mall is one of our key priorities and we will continue to strive to provide a safe shopping environment for our customers.” A source disagreed, however, stating that there are few safety measures in place at the mall and that the “quality of security cameras is very poor”. Paarl Post approached MTN’s head office for comment, but had not received feedback at the time of going to press.

Verskeie brande is vermoedelik weens brandstigting in Simondium veroorsaak. FOTO: LISE BEYERS

Beloning vir inligting oor brandstigters MARYKE SWART

Boere in die Simondium-distrik bied ’n beloning aan vir enige inligting wat daartoe kan lei dat brandstigters in die gebied aan die pen ry. Die afgelope jaar het sowat vyf brande in die gebied ontstaan en hoofsaaklik dennebos en wingerde in puin gelê. Volgens Robert Koch van die plaas Donkerhoek is sowat drie plase reeds deur die brande geraak. Cape Pine, die grootste eienaar van denneplantasies, het ook al deurgeloop. Volgens Koch vermoed hulle dat die brande in die berg, bokant Donkerhoek, gestig word en dan van daar af na omliggende plase versprei. “Die brande kon tot op hede met behulp van bombers en choppers uitgewis word,” sê hy.

Dawid de Villiers van die plaas Flenterskloof sê hy het al sowat 2½ ha wingerd weens die brande verloor. Volgens hom ontstaan al die brande binne ’n radius van 200 m van dieselfde punt af, hoofsaaklik in die denneplantasies in die berg. Die grootste geldskade lê egter volgens hom in die koste van brandbestryding. Helikopters kos sowat R18 000 per uur en lone wat aan brandbestryders op die grond betaal moet word, beloop ’n aardige bedrag. ’n Groep boere het intussen onderneem om tot die beloning by te dra indien dit daartoe kan lei dat hierdie brandstigters in hul spore gestuit word, sê Koch. Enigiemand met inligting kan Groot Drakenstein-polisie by 021 874 8000 of Koch by 021 874 2849 bel. * Farmers in the district of Simondium are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of arsonists in the area.

Man gevonnis vir bedrog SYDELINGS: ’n Vragmotor wat afval­wyn ver­ voer, het Dins­ dagmiddag op die N1 naby die Cecilia­ straat­afrit omgeslaan toe hy na bewering vir ’n ander motor wou padgee en beheer verloor het.

’n Man is onlangs tot twee jaar korrektiewe toesig gevonnis nadat hy sy vorige werkgewers uit byna ’n half miljoen rand bedrieg het. Quinton Jacobs (32) van die Paarl is verlede Dinsdag skuldig bevind aan 32 klagtes van bedrog. Jacobs, ’n voormalige werknemer van KWV, het produksie-bestellings wat reeds afgehandel was, oorgeplaas sodat dit nie meer reflekteer op die stelsel as deel van die handelsvoorraad van KWV nie, en die wyn dan vir homself gevat. Hy het by die verhoor erken dat hy bedrog van R484 119,72 gepleeg het. Jacobs het ’n pleitooreenkoms met die

staat aangegaan en die staatsaanklaer, Enslin Orange, het met die ondersoekbeampte en KWV gekonsulteer. Almal was tevrede met die vonnis-ooreenkoms. Streeklanddros Patrick Ross het Jacobs hiervolgens, ingevolge art. 276 (1) tot twee jaar korrektiewe toesig gevonnis en ’n verdere vier jaar opgelê wat in geheel opgeskort is, op voorwaarde dat hy hom in dié tydperk nie weer sal skuldig maak aan bedrog, diefstal of enige misdaad waarvan oneerlikheid ’n element is nie. Hy is ook onbevoeg verklaar om ’n vuurwapenlisensie te besit. * A former employee of KWV was sentenced to two years correctional supervision after being found guilty of fraud.

Vermeende verkragter van 3­jarige kry nie borgtog Die 29-jarige man wat teregstaan op die verkragting van ’n driejarige kind van Langrug naby Franschhoek, sal vir die res van sy verhoor agter tralies bly. Die verdagte het Dinsdag in die Franschhoek-landdroshof verskyn en is borgtog geweier is. Die verhoor is tot 17 Maart uitgestel. Die meisie en haar suster (4) was Saterdagaand alleen tuis ná hulle glo saam met hul

ouers by ’n partytjie was. Die pa en die verdagte het die kinders later huis toe gevat en is terug na die partytjie. Die pa het glo nie die deur gesluit nie. Die verdagte het kort ná middernag verdwyn en is na bewering terug na die kinders se huis waar hy die driejarige meisie voor haar suster (4) verkrag het. Die meisie se ouers staar nou elkeen ’n klag van kinderverwaarlosing in die gesig.

Learner’s licences for unemployed youth Last week, scores of youngsters descended on the traffic offices in Wellington to apply for their learner’s licence. This left many bystanders, bewildered at the amount of young applicants, but it soon came to light that this is an initiative of the Drakenstein Council. Municipal manager, Johann Mettler said that annually funds are allocated from the Executive Mayor Ward project fund to be used for various operational projects in the 31 wards. “The needs of the wards are determined through participatory meetings with the

community and therefore the community themselves choose what the needs of the wards are. Seven wards chose a learner’s license project for unemployed youth. “The beneficiaries were recruited through the ward committees and the ward councillor submits the names of beneficiaries to the Speaker’s office for verification and approval. The municipality through this process assisted 222 unemployed young people from the seven wards in Drakenstein area to obtain their learner driver licenses.” “This is one of ways in which Drakenstein Municipality invests in the leaders of the future.” Mettler added.

How safe is our mall? The past weekend’s armed robbery at the Paarl Mall comes as a shock. The public is under the impression that a public area such as a shopping mall should be a safe environment to do their shopping in, away from pick-pockets, unwanted characters and more. The armed robbery which took place on Sunday ended up being rather harmless. But things could just as easily have gone haywire if the wrong moves were made. What also astonishes, is the fact that these robbers, amidst what the mall calls their efficient security, were able to escape very quickly, almost like ghosts in the night. Not only has the Paarl Mall since it’s establishment had various break-ins at night, but cars are often stolen here in broad daylight – and that with an abundance of car-guards in the area, security personnel close-by as well as security cameras. So how safe a shopping experience is the Paarl Mall actually? Perhaps its the mall’s close proximity to the N1 as well as Paarl Station which makes for quick escape routes? Or is it just lack of general security? One can only hope that the latest incident at the mall has been a true wake-up call before something happens that has more dire consequences.

Verkeersdinge wat lewe vergemaklik Tot ’n maand of twee, drie gelede het Wellington se twee voetoorgange in Kerkstraat my menigmaal na Port Elizabeth se besige strate laat verlang. In my kleintyd was dit verstommend om te sien hoe Port Elizabeth se besige strate onmiddellik en sommerso vanself tot stilstand gekom het as ’n voetganger ’n straat vol haastige motors wil oorsteek. Daar was nie ’n verkeersman of ’n rooi lig wat die motors laat stilhou het nie. Jy gaan staan op die sypaadjie regoor die strepe wat wys waar jy die straat kan oorsteek en die verkeer kom onmiddellik tot stilstand sodat jy kan oorstap. Trouens, baie mense van die Baai het nie eens gestaan en wag tot die motoriste stilhou nie. Hulle het van die sypaadjie afgestap, ewe dapper voor die aankomende motors ingestap, terwyl Port Elizabeth se motoriste rem trap en rustig sit en wag tot die haastige voetganger die oorkantste sypaadjie veilig bereik. Wie dit vir die mense van Port Elizabeth geleer het, weet ek nie. Maar ek het die verskynsel nog nooit in enige ander stad teëgekom nie. Toe ek dit eenmaal in Bloemfontein gewaag het om oor die besige hoofstraat te stap voordat die verkeerslig die motors laat stilhou het, wou ’n verkeerskonstabel, rooi in die gesig en baie kwaai, van my weet of ek die rooi lig gesien het. “Of dink jy dis ’n Coca Cola-advertensie?” Wellington spog genadiglik nog nie met Kaapstad óf Johannesburg óf Pretoria se strate vol haastige motoriste nie – hier is die daaglikse spitsuur beperk tot ’n kort halfuurtjie in die oggend en ’n nog korter halfuurtjie laatmiddag. Maar elke Wellingtonse voetganger het in die jare wat verby is ’n dodelike roulette-spel by die twee voetoorgange in Kerkstraat gespeel. Soms was daar geen motor in sig nie en jy kon maklik oor die straat kom. Soms was daar ’n redelike afstand tussen die aankomende motors, maar jy moes vinnig draf om betyds oor die straat te kom. Soms (en dit was baie selde) het ’n motoris sy voertuig net voor die oorgang tot stilstand gebring en vir jou ongeduldig beduie om oor te stap – min wetende dat ’n tweede en selfs

’n derde motoris besluit het om by hom verby te skuur en besig was om op jou af te storm. Toe besluit Drakenstein se verkeersafdeling om tot die redding van Wellington se voetgangers te kom. Hulle het tamaai verkeersligte by die twee oorgange in Kerkstraat aangebring en nou stap jy hoog op die kruin van tamaai keisteenbulte oor die straat – bulte so hoog dat jy ewe meerderwaardig die ongeduldige motoriste rustig in die oë kan kyk as jy voor hulle wagtende motors oor die straat stap. En jy kan rêrig maar rustig stap, daardie rooi ligte het hope geduld. Daar was wel so ’n effense kommunikasie-gapingkie by die inwerkingstelling van die nuwe verkeersligte. Min voetgangers weet dat daar iewers naby die rooi lig ’n knoppie weggesteek sit wat jy kan druk om die motorverkeer te laat stilhou, en daarom skarrel tientalle Wellingtonners nog steeds soos verskrikte hoenders uit die pad van die aanstormende motors as hulle Kerkstraat wil oorsteek. Die verkeersligte by die voetoorgange in Kerkstraat is nie al geskenkie wat Wellington se mense van die verkeersdepartement ontvang het nie. Teen die einde van verlede jaar het ’n gedeelte van Malherbestraat in die omgewing van die Breytenbachsentrum en die biblioteek ’n eenrigtingstraat geword. Dié stukkie straat was, as gevolg van ’n gebrek aan bruikbare sypaadjies, besig om baie smal te raak. Nou is die straat oop en wyd en die meeste Wellingtonners is reeds daaraan gewoond dat ’n mens slegs vanuit Hoofstraat die bopunt van Malherbestraat kan bereik. Miskien moet Wellington se mense die Paarliete gaan oortuig dat ’n eenrigtingstraat soms die wêreld om jou baie geriefliker (en aansienlik veiliger) kan maak. Van der Lingenstraat langs die Toringkerk in die Paarl is beslis ’n plek waar ’n ongeluk wag om te gebeur. Tientalle motors skuur elke dag in daardie smal stukkie straat – wat eintlik net plek het vir een baan – teen hoë snelhede bymekaar verby. Terloops, ek was lanklaas in Port Elizabeth. Ek hoop dis steeds ’n stad met rustige, goedgemanierde motoriste!

These river escapades are getting completely out of hand I am responding to the beautiful front-page photograph of last weeks Paarl Post. Yes, it was a lovely photo, but on the other hand very disturbing. How many times has it not previously been reported that swimming is not permitted here? There are after all very clear signs. But once again, the municipal law enforcers turn a complete blind eye to this. Have councillors actually visited the banks of the river here after these revellers have left? It is an absolute disgrace. Rubbish and broken alcohol bottles are strewn all over the place. The morning after the severe spell of heat was especially bad. Debris that was left behind was even

Pathetically slow process on sewage pipe Please can we have an update on the status of the sewage pipe project under construction in Paarl. This project has been drawn out over a number of years and there seems to be no end in sight. One of my colleagues at work was involved in a bad accident on the corner of Lady Grey and Distillery road where the construction sites on both sides of the road render the intersection very unsafe from a viability point of view. Will this be another “Madupi Project” with an open ended time frame for completion? Surely there must be some penalty clauses for such pathetically slow progress.

blown across the Berg River Boulevard. Now, I really don’t mind people having their spot in the sun, but is it really necessary for them to leave behind an absolute pig-sty. But the other disturbing aspect now is that once many of these revellers tire of the river, they make their way back to Lady Grey Street

via Churchhill and Rooseveld Streets, also leaving behind rubble here and even vandalising post boxes and more. Last weekend my neighbour was accosted by a group of men returning from the river demanding to know where she lived because they wanted water. This is becoming more and more unacceptable. My question remains, where are the law enforcers and what is the municipality doing about this blatant disregard for the law? Or are they just purposely turning a blind eye, because the elections are coming up?

DISGRUNTLED RESIDENT PAARL

Moedeloos oor ons eens mooie parkie Wat eens op ’n tyd ’n heerlike speelplekkie was vir die buurt se kinders, is nou ’n slaapplek vir haweloses en kuierplek vir morserige jongmense. Ek as huiseienaar in Denneburg en my mede-Denneburgers is nou raadop met die toestand van die parkie in Mullerstraat. Dit het die afgelope tyd ’n slaapplek en toilet geword vir bosslapers en hulle gemors lê oral rond. Dankie aan die munisipaliteit wat verlede week die vullis opgetel en gras gesny het, maar as jy jou weer kom kry is daar ’n bosslaper of oproerige jongmense wat dit deesdae hul parkeer- en kuierplek maak en dan net so hul McDonald’s-boksies op die sypaadjie los nadat hul klaar gepiekniek het. Om nie eens van die drankbottels en stukke glas te praat wat nou al ’n geruime tyd daar lê nie en weekliks meer word. Ongelukkig antwoord Wetstoepassing nie hul fone as ek skakel om die mense te verwyder nie. Dan doen ek ’n beroep op die mense wat so op die sypaadjie sit en kuier om

dit asseblief. by hul huise te doen of in ’n kroeg of gooi ten minste jou vullis in die drom. Hoe gemaak rdl. Willem Naudé? Daar is nog mense wat trots is op hul area en dis ons reg as belastingbetalers om aan te dring op beter toestande en dienste.

MOEDELOOS DENNEBURG

Munisipale bestuurder Johan Mettler reageer(Wetstoepassing patrolleer so gereeld moontlik die parke in die Drakenstein-area, wat die park in Denneburg insluit. Dit is egter ’n uiters groot area en voltydse sekuriteit sal die belastingbetalers eenvoudig te veel kos. Die munisipaliteit werk ook nou saam met SAPD rakende die beweerde gebruik van dwelms in die parke. Inwoners word versoek om asseblief Wetstoepassing te skakel by 021 807 6353 gedurende kantoorure en na ure 021 807 4665, om vandalisme hok te slaan en ook sodoende die bosslapers vas te vat. Sal die gemeenskap asseblief help om parke netjies te hou en misdaad weg te hou, want dit is belangrik vir almal van ons.)

What makes these police officials so special? I have noticed ever since my son has been attending WA Joubert Primary school that there is always a police van parked at the school. I initially thought that it was a safety measure at the school. Recently I saw that the parked police van is dropping a child off in the morning at school and picking him up in the afternoon. Personally I think that this is misuse of an official vehicle. With the sharp increase in petrol, it has been a hassle to get my son to and from school on a daily basis. And since I am a tax-paying citizen and I indirectly contribute to the fuel of the police, I feel that it would be fair if the police then

offer this service to all parents. I suggest that the police officer in question collect my child at home since I am also contributing to the fuel. Since when do police vehicles serve as car pools? Since when may police officers use official vehicles for personal use? I have seen police officers in uniform doing their grocery shopping with an official vehicle and even using officials vehicles as moving trucks, packed with furniture. Some police officers believe that they are above the law; parking on a red line in Lady Grey Street to run across the road to Steers. From

what I have noticed, it is justified to park on a red line when you are getting lunch. Why is it that some people are above the rules of the road? Why is it fine for a police vehicle to speed across a red traffic light with sirens blazing just to switch it of when they reach the other side? What happened to the emergency, I ask. In all fairness, I understand that maybe the police officer at the school has transport issues, but so do I. Who gave him permission to use a vehicle that is there to serve and protect to use as a taxi. And who will be held responsible?

Botsing eis vrou, ongebore baba MARYKE SWART ’n Swanger vrou se familie is in rou gedompel ná ’n gru-botsing haar lewe en die lewe van haar ongebore baba geëis het. Elzette Simpson (31), ’n oud-Wellingtonner wat saam met haar man, Jason, in Plattekloof gewoon het, is op 3 Februarie dood na ’n botsing tussen haar motor en ’n vragmotor op die Contermanskloof-pad in Durbanville. Simpson, ’n skoonheidsterapeut, was op pad werk toe in Durbanville. ’n Vragmotor uit die teenoorgestelde rigting het na bewering haar motor se deur getref. Sy is op die toneel dood. Elzette en Jason was nege maande getroud en sy was drie maande swanger met die egpaar se eersteling. Hulle het nog nie geweet wat die geslag van die baba was nie. Elzette se ma, Rozalle Drude van Wellington, sê Jason wil graag die uitslag van die nadoodse ondersoek sien, om vas te stel of dit ’n seuntjie of dogtertjie was. Drude het haar dogter beskryf as iemand met ’n sagte geaardheid. “Sy was ’n maklike mens om mee oor die weg te kom. Sy het nie sommer kwaad geword of iets leliks van iemand anders gesê nie.” Haar ma vertel dat Elzette en Jason die na-

Elzette was ’n oud-leerling van die Hoërskool Weltevrede. Volgens ’n jarelange skoolvriendin, Lynzey Isaacs, het Elzette onlangs baie opgewonde van haar swangerskap vertel. In ’n huldeblyk aan haar skryf sy oor hul laaste ontmoeting. “The last day we spent together, we went to a beautiful wine estate, to bid our friend,

Maricia, farewell as she was departing to the US a few days later. We spent such a memorable day together. She told us about her pregnancy. We were amongst the first people besides her family she broke the news to, and that made me feel so special, that she shared such wonderful yet intimate news at the time, with us. We were ecstatic at the news and I could visualise the discussion we had earlier on in the year taking form...the first baby in our ‘play group’ was well on its way. We reminisced about the good old days...laughed constantly, and I remember staring at her with such admiration, that my friend would soon become a mother, and what an amazing mother she would be!!! Little did we know that Elzette would be the one we bid farewell to on that day,” lui ’n gedeelte uit die huldeblyk. Elzette laat nog ’n suster en ’n broer agter. ’n Gedenkdiens is reeds vir haar gehou. * A Wellington couple is left heartbroken after the sudden death of their eldest daughter.

Italian memorial to be restored A memorial on Du Toitskloof Pass overlooking Paarl which honours the Italian prisoners of war, has been desecrated by vandals. The bronze plaque was erected in 1984 during the Goodwill Festival to commemorated the many Italian prisoners who constructed the pass during the Second World War. After a member of a Facebook page dedicated to the role of South Africans involved both World Wars and the Korean War, Roché Petersen, reported the loss to the group, the idea was born to restore the memorial. The response was overwhelming, with the Italian Consul to Cape Town, Edoardo Maria Vitali, members of the Italian community in South Africa and the Zonderwater Association, named for the internment camp in Pretoria, as well as benefactors as far as Italy expressing their support. The memorial is very important to the military history of South Africa, with specific reference to the Second World War and Paarl in particular. The Du Toitskloof Pass is one of our most splendid mountain passes and just one of many such projects undertaken by the Italians. Others include the Outeniqua Pass

An 18­year old boy who matriculat­ ed from Paarl Boys’ High School last year, was found dead on Tuesday at his Boschenmeer home. Marcello Monteiro was a popular boy amongst all who knew him and was an active sportsman. He was a star of Boishaai’s first hockey team. He is survived by his mother Heilet, father Joe and brother Manuel. No foul play is suspected.

Beware of these scamsters A man from Wellington was shocked after he received a call from someone claiming to be from Absa – a bank he hasn’t done business with in almost two decades. The caller, a man calling himself Bessinger, told him he was calling on behalf of Absa and wanted to know whether he had received his Absa credit card. Since the man has not done business with this bank in about 20 years, he was caught by surprise. He went online and searched the telephone number that appeared on his phone from the caller. The phone number is registered to a company in Brakpan called New World Trace. According to the company’s website they trace debtors, missing persons and companies. Many complaints have been lodged on social networks. A person going by the alias “Too Clever” wrote: “He phoned me saying he is marketing for Absa, but the moment he phoned me I was on to him.” Another person using the alias of “Sucker” wrote: “This number belongs to New World Trace in Brakpan. The guy’s name is Bessinger. According to his website he locates missing persons and debtors. He phoned me this morning pretending to be from Absa. He is misrepresenting himself in order to get personal information.” Heidi wrote: “I got a call from this guy claiming to call from Std bank (Standard Bank) regarding my credit card.” Paarl Post contacted Absa asking them whether Bessinger is an employee or if they are doing business with such a company. Absa denied the relationship, stating: “It is safe to say that the person in question is not mandated to act on Absa’s behalf.” Arrie Rautenbach, head of Retail Banking at Absa said: “Banking fraud across the industry continues to be very prevalent, and the scenario highlighted would appear (to be) another way of obtaining full card and personal details with the aim of committing fraud.” He further said that fraudsters often send out emails or call customers claiming to be from Absa (or other reputable organisations) resulting in individuals giving out confidential information about their accounts. “Although Absa has a number of security measures in place to protect you, your awareness is the key to avoid being a victim of banking fraud,” said Rautenbach. Paarl Post contacted Bessinger. He admitted to being the owner of New World Trace but refused to answer any questions related to the telephone calls that were made impersonating an employee of Absa.

Blinds for every taste and home

Blinds do not only let you control the amount of sunlight that enters your home and give you more privacy, they also add to the ambience and style of your home. It’s imperative to decide on the best window covering solution for your residential or commercial requirements. Here are some of the types available. . Aluminium Venetians These come in a wide variety of colours and are all made from the finest imported Swedish slat with custom trimmings, giving them a stylish finish. . Aluwood Venetians Aluwood Venetians are aluminium slats with a wood print, which gives a wood appearance without the cost. These blinds also come standard with real wood trimmings, giving them a real wood finish. . Bass-wood Venetians This is the ultimate window covering in terms of elegance and style. These Venetians come in a wide variety of colours to match your décor and are made from the finest basswood, which is proven to be the best wood for making Venetian blinds. They are also available in laminated bass wood. . Plass-wood Venetians These are made with PVC that has been

moulded and printed to look like real wood. They are mostly preferred in areas with high humidity, like bathrooms, as they are more suited to moisture than real wood is. However, make sure the company you buy it from can guarantee that their PVC will not warp from UV exposure in the South African climate. . Vertical A wide variety of fabrics is available to choose from – from light filtering to total blockout vertical blinds. These blinds are also available in PVC or aluminium. . Roller blinds An excellent selection of roller blind fabric is available to suit not only your taste, but your budget too. These blinds come with a side control to raise and lower the blind in any position. . Roman blinds These are made with side controls that can stop the blind in any position. They are available in a wide variety of fabrics that have been specifically tested for use as Roman blinds – not all fabrics are suited for this purpose. . Bamboo and woven wood blinds These blinds come standard with cord lock and matching valance. The cord lock will stop the blind in any position, and it’s possible to make your bamboo or woven wood blind work like a roller or Roman blind. They also come in a wide selection of exquisite weaves. . Duette and plissè blinds These are available in total blockout or light-filtering fabrics to suit your application. . Printed blinds Any graphics can be printed on your Venetian or vertical blinds. You can also print different graphics on the front and the back of the blind, giving you the ability to change your graphic by simply tilting the blind in the desired direction. . Double-glazing blinds Twenty-five-millimetre aluminium Venetians can be made to fit between the glass of your double-glazed windows or doors. . Solar film roller blind These are made from solar film in a variety of shades and colours. Lift it up in winter to warm a room or put it down in summer to cool the room.

Insulating your home only has benefits Once you get to the matter of heating and insulation in building your house, keep in mind a fundamental law of physics: hot air will always attempt to move towards cold air to reach an equilibrium. If you do not have insulation material on your ceiling, there is nothing stopping hot air from moving into the house via the ceiling boards. This will cause the temperature inside to rise. In winter the exact opposite happens – the warmer air generated by a heat source will rise and escape through the ceiling into the roof. To stop this flow, insulation is needed to keep the hot air where it belongs. Every home or office needs to save energy. It’s not just a buzz word any more – it’s now a necessity. We have to take part in the drive to use less power for cooling and heating. Insulation is the starting point for any cost-saving exercise. Things like solar power and heating are also very important, but most energy is used to make a space more comfortable. The perfect solution to insulate your space is by installing cellulose insulation. It is 100% environmentally friendly in both its composition and the manufacturing process. Cellulose insulation is manufactured us-

Cellulose insulation will keep your home cool in the summer and warm in winter. ing a mechanical milling process that uses very little energy. Harmless chemicals are used to make it resistant to fire, rodents, insects and mould. Cellulose insulation is cheaper per square metre than other insulation materials, and offers more benefits.

What’s important is that insulation has now become a matter of legislation. Since 1 July, all new houses approved for construction require insulation. Cellulose insulation is approved by the government, provided it receives the SABS stamp.

Tuinwenke vir Maart – en dit is ’n hele blombedding vol! Die somer is amper verby en met die skaduwees wat langer word, verwag ons koeler dae. Tuinwerk raak lekkerder en die opruim van somertuine ’n nuwe uitdaging en vreugde! Grasperke: Strooi 30 gram 2:3:2 of 2:3:4 per vierkante meter – besproei dadelik na hierdie toediening. Nou is die tyd om jou besproeiingstelsel na te gaan, aangesien die somerhitte nog lank nie op ’n einde is nie. Jou plante benodig gereeld water. Die beste tyd hiervoor is die oggend vroeg of laat in die aand wanneer die minste verdamping plaasvind. Saai en plant van die volgende groente: Beet, ertjies, broccoli, geelwortels, kropslaai, spinasie en uie. Begin jou eie groentetuin! Rose: Sny alle stele wat nie blomme dra nie (blinde lote) en ook stele met dooie blomme uit. Die ogies wat by hierdie snyvlakke uitloop sal gedurende Mei blomme vorm. Behandel

rose vir swartvlek. Saai nou saad van eenjarige blomme wat gedurende die winter blom. Pronkertjies kan nou gesaai word. Clivias: Verwyder lelike blare wat deur slakke of wurms beskadig is. Strooi 30 gram 2:3:4 per vierkante meter – besproei dadelik na hierdie toediening. Plant struike of bome voor einde April. Bome en struike wat nou geplant word se wortels sal voor die winter begin ontwikkel sodat groei gedurende die lente sterk en vinnig sal wees. Berei nou jou beddings voor vir bolle wat gedurende die lente gaan blom. Dit is belangrik om lentebolle eers te plant wanneer dit koeler word. Onkruid: Dit is baie belangrik om onkruid dié tyd van die jaar in bedwang te hou. Gereelde skoffelwerk sal voorkom dat onkruid tot volwassenheid groei en hul sade laat val

wat in die lente ontkiem en tot meer onkruid aanleiding sou gee. Baie tuiniers is verras om te hoor dat snoeiwerk in die somer nodig is. Struike wat slordig groei kan nou ’n ligte snoei kry. Deur die plante in die somer te snoei, sal hulle in die laatsomer meer blom en hulle sal meer

Don’t let a water leakage ruin you home Few homeowners know much about plumbing on their property until it’s too late. Their level of interaction generally ends with the selection of taps, showerheads, baths, basins, sinks and toilets. Understanding some basics about plumbing, however, can save you time and money. Most suburban properties receive water from a municipal connection, where a meter and – importantly – the general stop-tap are located. Every house is required to have one. If there’s an accident, like a pipe burst,

this tap is where you’ll cut off the main supply. Cold water is supplied under pressure, and some of it flows to the geyser to be heated. Make sure the geyser operates at the right temperature – between 50° and 60 °C for optimum savings on your rates bill. Different forms of drainage systems ensure waste-water is removed, while some “green” systems can route waste-water for garden irrigation. Keep a lookout for dripping taps – thousands of litres can be wasted this way, adding to a significant portion of your water costs if left unchecked.

Most leaking taps can be easily and cheaply repaired with basic tools, but modern mixers and thermostatic taps generally require more sophisticated and sometimes costly expertise. It’s worth keeping this in mind when you’re shopping for bathroomware. When you need a plumber, it’s a good idea to get references. Services and skill levels vary vastly in this industry. Some plumbers even have hi-tech devices able to identify leaking pipes underground or in walls without having to open them up, which can greatly reduce the amount of work required.

Under lock and key Having built or renovated your home into the dream home you’ve always wanted is quite an accomplishment in itself. But now comes step two: getting the appropriate security measures in place to protect your home, your belongings and your family. Take note of the following safety tips: • Ensure your house number is clearly visible. • If your vehicle is parked outside, consider fitting a gorilla lock to the steering wheel. • Do not be seen to be placing valuables in your boot or hatch back and then leaving your vehicle. • Ensure the area around your residential buildings is well lit. • Ensure your pavement is clear of “hiding places”. • Be observant when approaching your home, especially of suspicious-looking characters. • Don’t leave extra house or car keys under your doormat, potted plants or any other obvious outdoor places.

• Be aware when driving home at night. If you suspect someone is following you, do not drive straight home. Rather drive around the block first to get rid of them, otherwise drive straight to the police station. • Dogs are great companions and a wonderful sense of security. However, they can’t always help you in difficult situations. • Do not leave valuables visible in your car, even if it is only an empty bag. • Always take your radio face out of your car at night. • It is wise to not have your key hanger/bowl close to a door or window. It is also advisable to invest in other security options such as burglar bars, trelly/security door, electric fencing, etc. Some homeowners also prefer having an alarm system or an armed response security company as the ultimate security method. Where your possessions and your loved ones are concerned it is better to be safe rather than sorry!

Hugenote groet leerkrag van W’ton met hartseer JOHAN NEL Minder as ’n maand nadat die personeel en leerlinge van die Hugenote Hoërskool op Wellington ’n spesiale kankerstap gereel het om twee leerlinge en ’n onderwyser van die skool wat kanker onder lede het finansieel by te staan, is die onderwyser aan leukemie oorlede.

Esti Marais

Esti Marais was die skool se baie gewilde Engelse onderwyser. Verlede Vrydag is sy onder blyke van groot deelname op Wellington begrawe. “Die personeel van Hugenote Hoërskool het met ’n swaar hart van Esti afskeid geneem,” het een van haar kollegas gesê. “Sy was in vele opsigte die verpersoonliking van wat ons as onderwysers so graag by ons leerlinge wil vestig. Esti het nooit nodig gehad om oor goeie eienskappe en waardes te preek nie. Sy het dit elke dag geleef en daardeur ons

almal besiel.” Haar kollegas het haar bestempel as die spreekwoordelike rat wat die masjien laat loop het. Sy was altyd gewillig om die werk agter die skerms te doen, sonder om ooit die eer vir haarself toe te eien. “Ons onthou haar kreatiwiteit en dryfkrag. Dit was háár visie wat uiteindelik daartoe gelei het dat Hugenote Hoërskool die uiters suksesvolle Aiming High-produksies kon aanbied. “Sy het elke leerder met respek hanteer, opreg in elkeen belanggestel en elkeen laat glo dat hulle ’n fenomenale akteur en danser is wat onmisbaar is vir die produksie. Die ure wat sy met Mnr. en Mej. Hugenote-finaliste deurgebring het om items in te oefen, was bewys van haar oneindige geduld en sleutel tot die sukses van dié geleenthede.” Esti Marais word oorleef deur haar man, Anton en dogter, Celeste.

Maak reg vir groot makietie by die Oesfees Die Wellington Oesfees vind op 15 en 16 Maart vanjaar plaas. Vanjaar se fees spog met drie temas: Boere Bazaar by Diemersfontein, Top Chilling by die immergewilde Bosman Family Vineyards, en Wilder as die Wildtuin. Talle Wellington wynplase is gereed om hul beste uit te haal en wys. Daar gaan ook veel te ete wees asook hope pret en vermaak vir die hele

gesin. Kaartjies is R100 per persoon wat ’n proeglas insluit. Kinders onder 18 is verniet. Twee Paarl Post lesers kan dubbele kaartjies na die fees wen. SMS jou naam en OESFEES na 32363 teen Maandag,

3 Maart. Besoek www.harvestfestival.co.za vir meer inligting.

PRESTEERDER: Fran­ cous de Beer (15) was ’n leerder by Newton Primêre Skool wat vir sy tweede jaar in Jo­ hannesburg is. Hy het ’n beurs ontvang vir rugby en presteer ook goed in atletiek by Hoërskool Florida waar hy die 70 m­na­ elloop gewen het en ’n eerste plek in aflos behaal het.

Deurbraak vir landbou­ekspo’s Agri-Expo, bekroonde organiseerder van verskeie landbouaanbiedings en Cadek Media, met die landswye Agriworks Ekspo’s in sy kamp, het ’n samewerkingsooreenkoms gesluit waar twee van hul geleenthede gesamentlik aangebied word en so ’n deurbraak vir landboutentoonstellings bewerkstellig. Die ooreenkoms behels dat Cadek Media se Stellenbosch Agriworks Ekspo en Agri-Expo se Kaapse Suiwel-ervaring vanjaar van 6 – 8 November sy-aan-sy op Sandringham buite Stellenbosch sal plaasvind. “Die tyd het aangebreek vir rolspelers in landbou om nie net te praat nie, maar om te wys dat daar samewerking kan plaasvind,” meen Johan Ehlers, uitvoerende hoof van Agri-Expo. “Deur hierdie twee prominente geleenthede saam aan te bied, skep dit ’n waardevolle en uitgebreide netwerkgeleentheid vir produsente en uitstallers en verleen dit ’n nuwe dinamika aan landbou-

Een van Wellington se oudste plaashuise is pas omskep in ‘n luukse hotel met konfe­ rensiegeriewe. Die plaashuis, geleë langs die Hexberg­pad net buite die dorp, is reeds in 1798 opge­ rig. Die ou gebou, wat nou in ‘n hotel met 10 luukse slaapvertrekke omskep is, beskik ook oor ’n swembad, restaurant en ont­ haalgeriewe. Die luukse hotel sal as Au’ De Hex bekend staan en is op 26 Februarie amptelik ge­ open. FOTO: JOHAN NEL

Skryfkursus by die Taalmonument Bekende skrywer Rachelle Greeff bied van Vrydag 7 tot Saterdag 8 Maart ’n skryfkursus by die Afrikaanse Taalmonument in die Paarl aan. Kursusgangers het die keuse om in die maand ná die kursus ook hul eie skryfwerk vir kommentaar voor te lê. Die kursus word tot 12 persone beperk en die fooi is R2 200. Die Taalmonument maak voorsiening vir borgskappe, wat bondig deur die voornemende kursusganger asook ’n mentor gemotiveer moet word. Greeff werk in verskillende genres, maar is veral bekend vir haar kortverhale en toneelstukke. Haar nuwe toneelstuk Rondomskrik open by die KKNK met Shaleen

Surtie-Richards in die hoofrol. Haar koerantwerk behels boekresensies en onderhoude met skrywers. Kursusgangers kry die geleentheid om voor die kursus ’n voorbeeld van hul skryfwerk, byvoorbeeld ’n kortverhaal, gedig, tydskrifartikel, kinderverhaal of familiegeskiedenis (maksimum 800 woorde) in te stuur, waarop terugvoering tydens die kursus gegee sal word. Kursusgangers ontvang ook voor die kursus leesmateriaal wat dien as wegspringplek vir die eerste sessie. Daaropvolgende sessies fokus op praktiese kwessies waarvan nuwe skrywers moet kennis neem voor hulle by uitgewers en media-

redakteurs aanklop. As opsionele ekstra, het kursusgangers agterna ’n maand waarin hulle óf ’n rubriek (620 woorde) óf ’n kortverhaal (nie langer nie as 2 000 woorde) kan skryf. Dit word eenmalig deur die kursusleier geredigeer en aan die kursusganger terugbesorg. Dié aanbod is by die kursusfooi ingesluit. Die kursus vind daagliks van 09:00 tot 16:00 plaas. ’n Ligte vingerete en koffie/tee is ingesluit. Bel Amira Clayton by 021 863 4809/0543 of e-pos kommunikasie@taalmuseum.co.za.

Spur school mountain­bike league in line for award The Spur School Mountain Bike League cemented its position as one of the leading sport development programmes in the country when it was shortlisted as a finalist for the 2014 Discovery Sport Industry Awards. Launched in 2009 as a joint initiative between Spur and Amarider, the league has shown a 45% year-onyear growth and has exceeded all initial projections in terms of numbers and reach. The league has grown explosively and has expanded from 900 entries and 20 events in 2009 to 7 506 entrants taking part in 52 events hosted in nine South African provinces as well as neighbouring countries Zimbabwe, Namibia and Lesotho. League coordinator Meurant Botha of Amarider attributes the amazing growth of the league to the hands-on involvement of Spur Steak Ranches as well as the efforts of a team of dedicated regional organisers and school coordinators. He adds that one of the key objec-

tives of the league is to leave a legacy for participants. “We are really happy with the steady growth of the league in terms of participants, more regional events and new tracks being developed in collaboration with schools and municipalities. The figures for 2013 have shot up to more than 7 000 entries. The level of competition has also improved significantly since the launch of the league five years ago,” says Botha. The Spur School Mountain Bike League final is also considered an interprovincial derby with the top cycling teams from across South Africa vying for the coveted interprovincial floating trophy. According to Spur market development manager Andrew Cronje, the group is delighted to be a part of grassroots mountain-biking development at school level. “We are really proud to be associated with the league as it not only provides a platform for schools to compete in a structured way, but is also playing a key role in growing mountain-bik-

ing as a sport discipline,” said Cronje. “We would love to see mountainbiking acknowledged as an official school sport. Being nominated for the official shortlist of the most respected and prestigious sport industry event in Africa will most certainly support this endeavour,” concludes Cronje. The Dreamfields Project walked away with the coveted title in the Sport Development Programme of the Year category of the Discovery Sport Industry Awards, while other nominees included the Powerade Performance Sessions with John Mitchell, NBA Royal Bafokeng Jr. Programme, SARU – Vodacom Cup 2013 “Tjovitjo” and SuperSport Let’s Play. The 2014 Spur School Mountain Bike league starts in March and will culminate with the final at Bekker School in October.

The competition is now in its 21st year and was dominat­ ed by Bloemhof Girls High for eight years. Paarl Girls High was placed third among the four girls schools, while Bloemhof took silver and Rhenish Girls High ended fourth.

Tour de Boland starts Multiple-time mountain bike world champion and four-time Absa Cape Epic winner Christoph Sauser will lead a powerhouse invitational team at the Bestmed Tour de Boland, presented by ASG, early next week. The four-day road tour, which starts in Franschhoek on 4 March, will pit Sauser’s stellar line-up of mountain bikers against the cream of South African roadies as they take on the gruelling 432 km challenge. The Meerendal-Songo.info team will include Sauser’s new Cape Epic partner Frantisek Rabon, as well as local pros Erik Kleinhans, Lourens Luus, Nico Bell and Oliver Munnik. They will face off against pro teams like Abantu, Bonitas and the local MTN-Qhubeka outfit, which includes last year’s champion Nic Dougall. “I’m glad there will be good competition. It will make the race interesting and it lifts our game too,” said Sauser. All eyes will be on the three-time

Czech time-trial champion Rabon during the 21 km stage from the Berg River Dam to the top of Helshoogte Pass. Sauser said Rabon, who rode for Omega Pharma-Quick Step last season, would provide invaluable guidance on the three road stages between Stellenbosch, Tulbagh and Riebeeck-Kasteel. The last of the climbs ends with a dramatic mountain-top finish on the spectacular Franschhoek Pass. As one of only two road races he will do this season, Sauser said he was looking forward to the Western Cape tour. “For me it’s free hard speed-training with lots of added excitement.” The former Olympic bronze medallist said road work formed an important part of his preparations for international commitments like the Cape Epic. Aside from the pros, this year’s Bestmed Tour de Boland will also feature amateurs across various gender and age categories For more information, find the race on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @TourdeBoland.
