Beetge awaits deportation CANDYCE KRISHNA
>>firstname.lastname@example.org THE father of convicted drug mule Tessa Beetge says his daughter has been communicating via e-mail with a “friend”. However, he still has no idea when she will be deported back to South Africa. “I am worried about Tessie, but she has been communicating with a friend via email. She says she’s fine, but I’m still concerned,” said Swannie Swanepoel. Beetge, who comes from Margate, has served five and half years in a Brazilian jail after she was caught at an airport in Sao Paulo with nine kilograms of cocaine in her luggage. “I don’t have access to email.Herfriendinformsmeas soon as there is news from Tessie. She is still waiting for a flight back home.”
Tessa Beetge is awaiting de portation from Brazil.
He did not wish to divulge more details about Beetge’s friend. Swanepoel added that his understanding of the deportation process was that it was spontaneous. “Tessie said in her e-mail that she will be not be given any notice when she will be put on a plane. We will not know either, until she lands in Durban and calls me.” He said Beetge was given two choices — remain under guard in a facility or go out into
the country, provided she reported back to the facility every day. “She chose to stay under guard as shelter and food was provided.Ifshechosetoleave, she would have no shelter or food.” He said Beetge being able to communicate with her friend has given him comfort and relief. “At least I know she is okay. It’s only a matter of time now.” When Beetge was arrested in 2009, she denied any knowledge of the drugs and said she had taken up on offer to do administrative work by Sheryl Cwele, of Port Shepstone, and her friend Frank Nabolisa. Cwele and Nabolisa were foundguiltyofdrugtrafficking and are serving lengthy jail terms. Swanepoel received news three weeks ago that his daughter had been released.

CHEERFUL faces filled the Marburg Haven hall on Monday as it and Anerley Haven Old-Age Home and Frail Care Centre received a donation of two new vehicles from Meals On Wheels Community Services South Africa (MOWCS SA). Both senior citizens facilities are affiliated with MOWCS SA, a nonprofit organisation with 208 affiliates throughout South Africa. It serves about one million meals a month to communities and individuals in need. Marburg Haven received a 19-seater bus and the Anerley Haven, a disabled people carrier. The sponsorship was made possible by the partnership MOWCS SA has with Peugeot Pinetown. “An essential aspect to serving our community is transport. “We are very grateful for this donation which is in excess of R100 000,” said Anerley Haven adminstrator, Quinton Gouveia.

Away with unregistered car guards, prostitution HEAD of Department Community Services at Hibiscus Coast Municipality Sibusiso Nzimande,saidat aMargatebusinessmeeting recently, that the problems with unwanted car guards in Margate are something of the past. He said that the Hibiscus Coast Municipality law enforcement officers have removed them all from the streets. However, Mike Geiger, vice-chairman of AfriForum’s branch in Margate was harrassed by a car guard on the Margate beach front last Friday morning. “He was not wearing any uniform or identification and when I asked him to provide me with his permit to act as a car guard he couldn’t,” said Geiger. “AfriForum approached a HCM law enforcement officer who was in her vehicle only 20 metres from where the incident happened. “The officer informed us that they pick up the illegal car guards or let the SAPS pick them up, but within an hour these car guards are back,” Geiger added. “AfriForum’s Neighbourhood Watch in the area informed prostitutes working their trade on Marine Drive in Margate to leave. They informed us that they were already at the police station and got their ticket,” said Chris Fourie, community co-ordinator for AfriForum in KwaZulu-Natal. “Members of the SAPS Margate pick up these prostitutes, charge them at the station, but they just leave from there and return to their street corner right away. “This is totally unacceptable, and the law enforcement agency, the courts and the community need to put their heads together to come up with a plan to solve this serious issue,” Fourie added. AfriForum requested a meeting with the Hibiscus Municipality management, the municipality law enforcement management, the SAPS management and the Port Shepstone state prosecutor to present their proposal to solve this issue. AfriForum appeals to the residents of the Hibiscus Coast to become involved with the local branch. If you want to join an organisation that makes a difference, SMS “Margate” to 33136.

At last, it’s here THISweeksawPortShepstoneHospitalfi nally, after four years, open its R165 million facilities which is very good news for the Ugu region. MEC of Health, Dr Sibongise Dlomo’s, speech which was delivered by KZN MEC for Finance, Ina Cronje, made some pretty serious promises along with the launch of the new facilities. “Everyone who comes to this hospital will be treated with dignity. Thefacilitieswillbemaintainedwithahigh standard of cleanliness and a positive atti tude among staff members.” This is all good and well. Having up graded facilities is without a doubt a step intherightdirectionforstaffwhosemorale will be boosted and hopefully for patients whowillnothavetogotoDurbanhospitals fortreatmentthatwillnowbeavailablelo cally. But the the big trick here is twofold as Dr Dlomo’s speech said. The government and hospital directly do have a responsibil ity to look after people, but people also have a responsibility to look after them selves, so that as far as possible they stay well and do not end up in hospital. This incorporates safe sex, not smok ing, drinking excessively and leading a healthy lifestyle as far as possible. In these times, more people are leaning on state hospitals as medical aid policies become more expensive, and the more people who use the system the heavier the burden on it. Wethereforealsoallhaveadutytowel come the new hospital facilities, but use them with the due respect that will see the system work well and last.

By supplying us with water, the gov ernment would be sending a message to all South Africans that services would not be achieved by strikes and burning gov ernment property and this would help a population of about 2 000 people living in this area.

We have been given a fiveyear guarantee on the bath, which quite frankly means the square root of nothing if the bath has not been repaired properly. But he accepted our cash payment of R950. How does one expect to get work if this is how they treat one's clients? They say if you have any problems “phone us im mediately” , but it would be great if anyone even an swered our calls.

Dear Fever, WHY is it when almost any request for work to be done gets treated with ‘“I will do it.., but please do not expect any aftersales service”, or is this just typi cal of the South Coast.

JUSTIN MACKRORY: CEO SOUTH COAST TOURISM
Events and local areas THE recent announcement that the South Coast is to host the Expedition Africa 500 at Port Edward has been favourably re ceived, especially by the Port Edward Umtamvuna tourism community who, to their credit, initiated this eventing oppor tunity. Vicky Basson, our area committee at Port Edward and proactive and very sup portive product owners like the Bain bridge’s at the Port Edward Holiday Resort have rallied to assist the event organisers Heidi and Stephan Muller to bring this in ternational expedition to the coast and parts of the hinterland.
Give this church a try
To me this local commitment to a tour ism opportunity is a classic example of community tourism in action. The resort has come to the party in terms of media and participant accommodation, others have begun identifying children from less affluent areas to be coached in water ac tivities associated with the event and col lectively an effort is being made to provide transportation for South African and inter national media. Often people scoff at the principle of area committees, but a sage once said: “If yourbusinessdependsdirectlyorindirectly on decisions and workings of a committee,
get onto or work very closely with that committee.” Passive involvement in tourism pro videspotentialforweaknessinourtourism sector as it is the principle of private and public partnerships that has to sustain for our tourism to flourish. This is why we have established 10 area committees whose function is to take ownership of the destiny of the sector in their immediate area. Their needs and objectives form part of our macro tourism management objec tivesfortheentiregreaterSouthCoastand where possible we add financial and hu

By having this model generally, tourism matters from Scottburgh (Umdoni) to Port Edward and inland via Eziqoleni, Um zumbe and Vulamehlo and farther out to HardingIngeli, we are at Ugu South Coast Tourism are in a position to get feedback, recommendations and strategic planning input. Area committees are, in my opinion,

Dear Fever, I ATTENDED a wedding at the Margate Methodist Church this month and was highly im pressed by the new preacher Revered Neil Robinson. With his charm and Irish humour, it was the best service I ever at tended in my life. This church has a very “old” congregation and I urge the younger people of our commu nity to do themselves a favour and to attend just one of his services. I bet you for sure that you will return.

Support Tekkie Tax, support Hospice THIS year South Coast Hospice is participating in the Tekkie Tax campaign which gives you an opportunity to show where your heart is. The event takes place on Friday, 30 May and you can participate by buying a sticker for R10, get a packet of Tekkie Tags (special shoelaces and tags including a sticker) for R30 or buy a golf shirt for R110. You can choose any of the fivesectorsyouwouldliketosupportwhenbuying your stickers or choose more than one. Categories range from animals, basic family care, children and disability or education. If you are an NGO and would like to work
withSouthCoastHospicejoininandmakeadifference. On Tekkie Tax day, you simply wear the big sticker on your lapel and put the small one on your cellphone to stay there for the rest of the year. Whatever your outfit is for the day make sure to wear “tekkies”, and you can spiff them up by getting a pair of funky shoelaces called “Tekkie Tags.” Stickers are available from Ramsgate Stationers, Mbango Valley Association, the tourist information office Shelly Centre and County Auto. — Supplied
Disabled … who me? Dear Fever, ASK anyone what they believe are the most common causes of disability and you’re most likely to hear injuries at work, car accidents or freak incidents. What you might be surprised to hear is that these aren’t the common causes of disability. “Musculoskeletal disorders are the leading cause of disabilities and include arthritis, back pain, spine and joint disorders. But critical illnesses such as cancer, heart attack, stroke and diabetescausethemajorityoflong-termorpermanent disabilities that would prevent a person from working again. What’s scary is that the latter is becoming moreprevalentinpeopleyoungerthan50.Lifestyle choices and personal behaviour that lead to obesity are also becoming major contributing factors to disability,” explains Ryan Chegwidden, actuarial head at Altrisk, a specialist risk product provider. Cost of living with a disability underestimated TheSAinsurancegapstudyreleasedbyTrue South Actuaries and Consultants in 2010 showed that an estimated 52 000 salary earners (out of an employed pool of 12.4 million) would suffer total and permanent disability in 2011. So, if the actuarial numbers are right, 156 000 people faced permanent disability that prevented them from working in the past threeyears.Mostconcerningthough,isthatthe
average South African income earner is underinsured by 60%, or almost R1 million, in the event of permanent disability. The average family would have to cut living expenses drastically if the main earner of a household becomes disabled.

Good to know there are still people who care Dear Fever, I WOULD would like to give my thanks to all the dear people who came to help me when I had my terrible fall outside the Hibiscus Mall on the afternoon of 14 March. What love and compassion they showed towards me. They all know who they are and I thank Shawn Felix and his lady Shaliane Naidoo who took me to a nursing sister to examine me who then referred me to Port Shep stone casualty where I again experienced love and compassion. It is wonderful to know that people still care. I thank my Lord for you all and may He bless you. Shirley Jennings Margate

A light in the dark
>> A familiar landmark that has a rich history dating back to 1895
Port Shepstone lighthouse can be seen from 26 nautical miles out to sea.
ORT Shepstone’s lighthouse is situated on the Southern bank of the mouth of the Umzimkulu River. The town itself was named after a well known statesman in native affairs, Sir Theophilus Shepstone. The Port Shepstone lighthouse was devel oped out of a signal station, which was used during the time that Port Shepstone was an operating harbour. The signal station originally consisted of an ordi nary ship’s masthead lantern exhibited at the top of a lad derlikestructureandcamein to operation in 1895. The signal station was re placed by the present cast iron structure of the lighthouse in 1906. This structure came from higher up the coast, Scottburgh, where it had been usedtomarkthesouthernend of that famous hidden reef, the Aliwal Shoal. The lighthouse is painted in black and white cheques and has become a familiar landmark to people who visit the quaint little town of Port Shepstone. The coastline run ning south from this beacon is notorious for its wrecks, in fact this stretch of coastline be tween Port Shepstone and Cape Hermes at Port St Johns is particularly dangerous. Probably the most famous
of these wrecks are the Sao Joao and the Gros venor. The Sao Joao, a richly laden Portuguese Galleon was wrecked with its alleged riches have never been located. The Grosvenor sank beneath the waves off the Pondoland shore with her hoard which leg end insists included jewels, gold and silver bars
and some say the fabulous Peacock Throne of the Moguls believed to be worth well over 65 million Rand. Razor sharp rocks, strong cur rents, pounding surf and inaccessibility to this wreck has put paid to recovering any treasures that might lie beneath the murky waters. – Fever Reporter

FEVER Gold on our reef
HE East Indian vessel, Grosvenor, went down on a reef near the mouth of the Umzimkulu River on4August1782.Theshipwasonherreturnvoy agetoEnglandfromIndiawhensheranafoulofashal low reef and lost her full cargo to the ocean. The total value of items on the Grosvenor would amount to over 65 million Rand, according to the notes of historian Percival Robson Kirby. Sailing west at approximately 1am and while ad justing the sails to ride out a gale, the crew noticed lights to the west. Dismissing the lights as something akin to the northern lights, the ship continued on its course. When the lights presently disappeared, they were given no further thought. As it turned out, the lights were grass fires burning on a headland directly
ahead on their course. The disappearance of the lights was due to their being hidden by the brow of the hill. At 4am, Thomas Lewis reported that he thought he could see land, but the idea was rejected by the com manding officer of the watch. Everyone on board was certain that they were at least 320 kilometres out to sea. The quartermaster, after some hesitation, alerted the captain, who instantly came on deck and tried to bring the ship about. During this change of tack, the shipranagroundontherocks.Inthedarkness,thecrew firmlybelievedthatastheywerealongwayfromland, they had struck an uncharted island or reef. With a change in the wind direction, the captain felt that they could refloat the Grosvenor and run her aground. How ever, as soon as the ship twisted around, its freed bows started taking on water and it became clear to all that she would have been better off left on the rocks. – Fever Reporter

DATE: 8 June 1552 The Portuguese ship São João went down near the mouth of the Mzimvubu River Port Edward with 600 people on board. The heavily laden ship was returning from her voyage to India when she was stranded and ran aground. She had leftCochin,India,on3February1552 loaded with pepper, Chinese porce lain and other merchandise valued at over one million rand today. Some 100 people were drowned and the rest of them, led by Manuel de Souza, started off on a gruelling march north along the coast in the hope of being spotted by passing traders. The leader, his wife and
most of the survivors from the wreck died on the journey. Only 21 people survived the journey back to Mozambique. The wreck was only found in 1980s by Tim Maggs. To date no ef fort has been made to reclaim the treasures of the São João. Porcelain shards believed to be from the wreck of the São João still wash up on the beaches near Port Edward. Local businesses have organised The São João and Chilli Route, a modern day “treasure hunt” leading visitors to numerous local business es, in memory of Manuel de Souza and the mariners he led up the coast. – Fever Reporter

National Water Week
March 21, 2014
Working together to conserve H O 2
This year, National Water Week takes place from Mon day, 17 March until Sunday, 23 March 2014. The Nation al Department of Water Affairs have released the fol lowing key messages. Water is a scarce resource – let us work together to conserve it! • Water scarcity is a global challenge that effects many regions in the world with Southern Africa being the hardest hit. • South Africa is a water scarce country, ranked the 30th driest country in the world with annual rainfall levels about half the world average. • In many parts of the country we have either reached or are fast approaching the point at which all viable freshwater resources will be fully utilised. • Every South African needs to take immediate meas ures to preserve and save water so that we do not face a future water crisis.
• We all have a part in conserving water and reducing demand for the good of the country’s resources and to preserve a legacy for future generations. Government can’t do it alone. • Water conservation begins with each one of us; there needs to be a change in attitude and behavior to use water more wisely in our daily activities. • Efficient water use ensures a reliable supply, which inturnimprovesthequalityoflifeofallSouthAfricans, and promotes local economic development. •Takeactionandreportallwaterleaksonyourproperty or in your area to your local municipality for assistance. • Report unlawful usage of water, dumping of agricul tural, industrial and sewerage waste in rivers to our compliance monitoring and enforcement unit the “Blue Scorpions”. • Our water infrastructure belongs to all of us and we must not allow it to be vandalised or uncared for as
we depend on it for a vital services. •Governmentcallsonallstakeholderstocometogeth er in a collective effort to conserve water in order for it to have a greater impact. • Municipal councillors are encouraged to engage com munities on planned water disruptions and mainte nance. The provision of water has been a key priority for gov ernment since the advent of democracy. • Since 1994 government has been hard at work ensur ing that all South Africans have access to water. • Government is committed to continue to roll out its interventions to ensure the universal access of water. • In 1994, only 59% of our people had access to clean and safe drinking water, by 2013 we had progressed to a national average of 95.2%. • Government has a 10year plan to address the water access backlog.

Government acknowledges that water challenges still persist in some areas. • Being a water scarce country and coupled with infra structure and maintenance challenges means that in some areas the provision of water continues to remain a challenge. • Ageing and malfunctional infrastructure which is compounded by vandalism poses a serious problem. • Lack of engineering skills prevents proper mainte nance of our water infrastructure. • Our water quality is negatively affected by pollution. • Seasonal droughts impact on amount of water avail able. Our plans are supported by the building of sustainable water infrastructure. • Through Strategic Integrated Projects (SIP) 18 South Africa has a 10 year plan to address the estimated backlog of adequate water supply to 1.4 million house holds and 2.1 million households to basic sanitation. • Our water projects will provide new infrastructure, re habilitation and upgrading of existing ones, as well as improve water management infrastructure. • In expanding our water supply the following projects where recently launched: The MooiMgeni Transfer Scheme 2 (MMTS2) which includes the Spring Grove Dam in KwaZuluNatal which will boost declining water supply in the area and benefit approximately 5 million people.

Employees walk to improve health PORT Shepstone Hospital employees, from inactive individuals to those already making great strides towards better health, embarked on a four-kilometre Wellness Walk recently. “New employee participants were walking for fun, while those who are already active aimed at finishing the race early,” said hospital spokesperson Phumza Morai. These activities, which promote a healthy lifestyle, will take place on the last Friday of the month. “The idea is to have a routine challenging target and develop a walking habit that everyone can maintain for good, thus educating and encouraging everyone to improve their health by adopting healthy habits,” added Morai. — Supplied.

Participants at the starting point of the walk.
Dear Doctor Nash, This has got to be pri vateandconfidential.Iknowyoucanbetrust ed. I am in grade 10 this year, and I am 19 years old. I have never failed, but this year I have problems and have been drinking a lot (beer and brandy). I have had a girl friend for the last two years and she has just told me that she is pregnant. She is 16 years old. Her par ents know but I have not told my mother. We have decided to have the baby, and I would like to live with her, but I cannot, no money! I want to go and talk with my girl friend’s mother, but I do not know what we can do. My girl friend is also in grade 10 and the baby will mean that she will miss a lot of school. What do you suggest Doctor? What do you think we should or could do? Help. M.Z. Dear M.Z. You have really been an idiot! And now is the time when both you and your girl friend have to face the music and it will not be easy. You will have to tell your mother
the truth, and also talk to girl friend’s mother. Basically you need help from both of them. Help with accommodation and help finan cially. Then again a decision has to be reached is it too early (or too late!) to decide on mar riage? I think maybe your girl friend is too young. It is good that you want to look after her and the baby BUT you will need help and lots of it. You, the girl friend and the two mothers, must accept that perhaps you two are not yet competent to keep the baby and you should look for adoption. And what about your religious convic tions? Do you have any? This is not something that can be solved easily and I suggest that you do bring in the parents, your church and what about a coun seling session with a clinical psychologist? Do not jump too quickly, no decision will be easy, or necessarily the best one, or even the right one. Hambakahly.
Love my ex, but he violent?
At the start are (from left) Nobuhle Tikatika, Nokubonga Khoza, Zoleka Dzelwa and Alreed Chetty.
Enjoying the walk are (from left) Sister Ramlal Nishani, Ruth Naidoo and Stanley Mkhize.
Dear Doctor Nash, I am single but have had a long term boy friend for six years, but he has been having other girls so I broke up with him a year ago. I have now met someone else. I have still being seeing ex on and off, and been seeing the new guy since last year. I know his family and he does not socialize. He is also very jealous. He is always off work on Mon days and so last week we went to Durban. He wasdrinkingandthenhestartedwithcocaine and I had a line too. We went all night. Then he phoned friends for more. We stayed in the hotel room. I could not sleep. Then he got in a bottle of Southern Comfort and during the morning he started to act like a girl. He is bi sexual. I still love my ex, but he is so control ling, violent and unfaithful, and now this! What do you suggest Doctor Nash? I must do
something. Ms. M. Dear Ms. M. Quite honestly you do not have a very good track record in picking eligi ble men do you? Accept it and look at yourself. Why did you pick a guy who was not interested in making a partnership with just you, and then some one who is not only addicted to drugs but is also not ready for a marriage? Your choices and the fact that the first one lasted for six years and you say you still love him after his record of continually cheating on you makes me suggest that you really need to see an ex pert with experience in this area. Right now you need to drop both of these creatures, get yourselfanexpert,andgetyourselfsortedout before you make a real mess up. If I can help, phone me.

BODYBOARDING MARTIN OTTO
March 21, 2014
Untapped potential DAVID STEYN
>>email@example.com SPONSORSHIPS are hard to come by for the aquatic sports of body boarding and surfing. This is the consensus of local bodyboarder and surfer Martin Otto. Having moved to the coast 22 years ago, Otto developed a pas sion for the ocean. He has since taken up bodyboarding for 22 years andsurfingforthepast12years.Ottohasbeencoachingbodyboard ing for most of his adult life as well as enjoying the sport in his free time. According to local bodyboarders many sports agencies have held surfing and bodyboarding competitions on the South Coast. Our beaches lend themselves to be used by both the experienced and inexperienced participants in the sport. Althoughthereisconstantnewlifeintheindustry,localbusiness es and sponsors do not see much reason to consider these aquatic sports as a serious means of giving back to community by way of donations or sponsorships. Talent is wasted due to the financial constraints put on competi
tors for travel and accommodation when competing away from home. Otto has also seen many a competition fall way short of its aspirations due to lack of funding. Despite this, the sport is still growing in the private sector, with youngsters taking lessons and improving their skills. Even older members of the public have begun taking to the water for body boarding lessons. Aside from an increase in interest from an older generation, in the first part of the local Blowout Competition held on Lucien beach, Otto noted a substantial increase in female entrants. Being unable to continue participating in competitions due to work constraints, Otto had to pull out of the organising of the com petition as well, and was pleased to see the younger enthusiasts takeonthechallenge.Hemusesthatthereisafutureforbodyboard ing and surfing, regardless of it being accepted as a mainstream sport or not. Untilthetimecomesforcorporateenterprisestoshowafinancial interest in surfing or bodyboarding, locals will take to the beaches as often as they can for that next perfect wave.

An initiative to grow bowling as a sport for younger generations, Kingfisher Bowling Club has pulled out all the stops to make the event memorable. Bowling has often been thought of as a pastime for the aged. Justin Mackrory, CEO of the Ugu South Coast Tourism, has embraced the tournament as a means of enlightenment. He regards the under 25 event as a showcase of a generation of skilled bowlers and wishes all participants the best of luck. “We welcome such sports initiatives as this and to this end are encouraging
all forms of sporting codes to make use of the superb, diverse sporting facilities we offer on the coast and in the hinterland,” says Mackrory. A total of 16 teams will participate to bring awareness to bowling as a sport for all ages. Being a national event, the winner’s medals will be recognised by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic committee. All are welcome, from seasoned veterans to new players. Spectators will be well catered for and entertained by the sport.

Last year, for September’s run, there were 77 participants and R1500 was made for the Pink Drive charity. The Comrades Marathon has a select group of five charities that it provides support for and the Pink Drive is one of these Amabeadi Beadi charities. The Comrades has 1000 places open near the start of the marathon for competitors who have raised R5000 or more for one of the Mamabeadi Beadi charities. Any competitors able to raise enough funds for a good cause will then be allocated a spot near the front of the line on the morning of the Comrades.
