RESIDENT in WoodgrangeOn-Sea says it’s “strange and irresponsible” how Telkom pays attention, or no attention in this case, to one of its major assets. José Fonseca is talking about the signal tower about a kilometre from his home with malfunctioning signal lights. There are 20 houses within the kilometre radius. His concern is that light aircraft could collide with the tower at night whenvisibilityisreducedandthedebris from the collision could damage houses. “This tower was installed six years ago and I make Telkom aware every time the warning lights do not function,” said Fonseca.

Three drug busts on South Coast

A DRUG dealer has been arrested for the second time for being in possession of mandrax and heroin. Admiral Mlungisi Luthuli (31) was first apprehended by the Port Shepstone SAPS in the CBD in September 2013 and appeared in court. He was out on bail and arrest­ ed again last Thursday in the Port Shepstone CBD. He now has to appear in court on 23 January. Luthuli was caught with 10 straws of heroin and 20 mandrax tablets in his car. Warrant Officer Patrick Gosling, Constable Travis Dickens and Constable Raphael Smithwick made the arrest. They also confiscated a cell­ phone and R1 420 in cash. “He was charged with dealing in drugs and appeared in Port Shepstone court on Friday. The

HILE spending a day on the beach with his family, Raven Sanasee (47) of Port Shepstonewassweptoutto sea on the Port Edward beach last Saturday. NSRI Port Edward sea rescue volunteers, who were on duty at the time at the sea rescue station, found that lifeguards had rescued Sanasee from the surf and cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) efforts had been started. Netcare 911 paramedics and Medivac paramedics continued with advanced CPR on arrival, but

after CPR efforts were exhausted, he was declared dead. Other drownings include a 10-year-old boy who was washed into a storm-water drain near Margate in December 2013. There were three drownings on New Year’s Eve, the youngest being a two-year-old boy who drowned in a private pool in Margate.

Man arrested for crystal meth A 44­YEAR­OLD man was arrested in Albersville at his house recently for possession of drugs. After a tip­off Warrant Officer Patrick Gosling, Con­ stable Raphael Smithwick, Consta­ ble Travis Dickens and Constable Mzakwe Makana went to the house in Chestnut Drive and searched the man’s bedroom where they found eight plastic bags containing crystal meth. “The bags sell for R300 each. It was hidden in his wardrobe,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant­ Colonel Zandra Wiid. The officers also confiscated two pipes, which are used to smoke the drug, and three scales. “The drug is not commonly used on the South Coast, but this could be just the beginning,” said Wiid. Crystal meth is a form of meth­ amphetamine that resembles small fragments of glass or shiny white­ blue rocks. On the street it is also known as “ice”, “crystal”, “glass” among other names. “It is a highly powerful and addic­ tive manmade stimulant that causes aggression and violent or psychotic behaviour. Many users report getting hooked from the first time they use it,” she added. The suspect will soon appear in Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court for dealing in drugs. — Supplied

Stationery and uniforms amounted to R800 and R900 respectively. “Educating a child does not stop there. There’s still extra monthly tuition fees to take into account, but as parents we have to make a plan,” said the parent. Then there are some government schools whose fees are higher than others. This is due to a number of factors such as the schools facilities, specialist teachers, the level of education and the like.

Dear Fever, I CAN’T help but think that the number of drownings since the start of the holiday season, published in local papers last week, is

Drownings, ridiculous, unnecessary ridiculous. For a start, it casts doubt on our lifeguards who I happen to know do their best with full beaches over the holidays managing some swimmers who should not even be in the water. I say this because there will al-

ways be those windgat swimmers who go out further than they should, who don’t listen to lifeguards’ warnings, and those who drink and swim. Is it any wonder they drown. Other problems are parents who don’t watch their children on the beach, in the sea, in

EDITORIAL COMMENT

CARTOON SIR

Help welcome

You are doing important work on the computers, therefore you must save your work you have done today!

THE cost of education has soared as you will see in our story on page 4 and for many parents this is a bitter pill to swallow as ed­ ucating one’s child is not optional. Buying stationery, uniforms and other back­to­school items is something a par­ ent has to do whether it is affordable or not. This is why the gesture from the Um­ zumbe Municipality to issue uniforms to needy pupils is touching since some par­ ents cannot afford them, and no matter where a parent shops uniforms are costly. The municipality should be applauded notonlyforits“dress­a­child”programme, but also for its free education in certain schools where parents cannot afford fees and for its school feeding schemes. This municipality also offers matricu­ lants the chance to apply for bursaries for further studies or to repeat matric should they have not passed. HCM also offers bursaries to pupils who received good matric results, but who are unable to afford university or further terti­ ary education fees. These initiatives should be welcomed because there are many matriculants who worked hard to do well, but who would be unable to pursue further dreams without opportunities like these.

Thanks, Sheppie SAPS Dear Fever, I THANK SAPS Warrant Officer Poovan from Port Shepstone Police Station for his wonderful work and great service provided to me last week. Yes, I used to go there, but I never got the good service he offered. He deserves to be rewarded. I wish other police officers could learn from him. Poovan, keep up your good work and God will bless you. T. D. Khumalo Port Shepstone

HONOURING BURRY

Dear Fever, THANK you Quintin van Jaarsveld and the Fever for remembering Burry Stander and for the story, especially in the same week the matric results came out. He was an amazing person and this was seen by the cycling fraternity who came that Friday to commemorate him and join hisfamilyatthesceneoftheaccident in Shelly Beach. Thank you to all who lit a candleforapersonwhochangedthe face of cycling in this country. Much more than remembering Burry though, you covered a story that will live forever with the opening of the Burry Stander

Hey, does anyone know how to save Solitaire?

Watch out for Eskom fraudsters on the coast Dear Fever, CRIMINALS’ modus operandi is to fraudulently claim they have to replace the customer’s old geyser with a solar water heater. They then arrange an after-hours appointment with the homeowner to discuss the replacement. The suspects to which I refer, one female and three males, carry false Eskom identification and drive a silver Toyota vehicle, registrationnumberND291728,whichismarkedwith false Eskom signage. Eskom wishes to alert the public of the risk of falling victim to this scam. Anyone who receives such a call should exercise extreme caution. Customers should not let anyone into theirhomeunlesstheyhavemadetheappointment with an Eskom person, or unless they have seen an advert giving details, dates, times, products and terms of conditions of the solar geyser project roll-out in their area. An increasing number of criminals are posingasEskomemployeestogainaccesstoproperties. The public is urged to report incidents of fraud, corruption and irregularities involving Eskom employees or suppliers to Eskom’s forensic and anti-corruption toll-free hotline on 0800 11 2722.

READER’S PHOTO

of our coast Dear Fever, ON our recent return from three weeks in the western part of the country, I wrote to the “powers that ought to be” in HCM-Ugu Tourism saying we were embarrassed to have friends or relatives visit us in the neglected and abandoned village of Umtentweni. The whole South Coast (urban, rural and holiday resort area, don’t forget, with dreams of attracting ever more visitors to our shores) looks more like Mthatha and Harding with every passing day — filthy towns and beaches, uncut verges, potholes, disgusting public toilets, uncollected

garbage, litter and dumping everywhere, oozing and seeping sewage, broken traffic lights, rusted and broken road signage, a “bucket” toilet system at the taxi rank, areas with no water for days, even weeks, uncontrolled drinking and urinating in public, an increasing crime rate, broken and blocked drains, etc, etc, etc. It’s a disgrace and municipal officials should be ashamed that they have presided over and allowed such neglectful deterioration of a once-beautiful coastline.

No longer proud to live on the coast Dear Fever, I HAVE just returned from a month in North West Province and Gauteng and during that time, and includ­ ing the journey itself, I witnessed some poor conditions throughout the regions. However, I have never seen an area or suburb that comes close to the disgrace­ ful conditions which we are now experienc­ ing on the South Coast. We are surely due for an award as the fastest growing slum or ghetto in South Africa, thanks to the wonder­ ful involvement of the ANC, Ugu and HCM I am no longer proud to say I live here.

GONYAKA odlule kunozakwethuobhalengombulalazwe othandwa ngabantu abaningi ngisho nezingane imbala ezingakazi lutho ngezothando. Ngokwazi ukuthi imiqondo yabaningi yayizogijimela ekucabangeni ngengculazi, washeshe wakucacisa ukuthi ukhuluma ngomakhalekhukhwini osukhiphe imiphefumulo eminingi. UMnuz Albert Shabangu osebenza omnyangweni we-Marketing emaphephandabeni eFever, wathi okubuhlungu ngalo mbulali ongumakhalekhukhwini, ukuthi akafikanga engumbulali kodwa yithina bantu esimenza umbulali. Lo mbono kazakwethu ngiwukhumbule ngeSonto ngilalele uMnuz Lucky Luthuli onguthishanhloko eMlazi Comtech exwayisa abazali ngokuthanda izingane zabo ngokw-

Uthe abazali kufanele bazi ukuthi umsebenzi omningi ekuqinisekiseni ukuphumelela kwengane esikoleni, nokuthi ikusasa layo liqhakazile, usemahlombe abo. Uthe: “Umsebenzi wothisha esikoleni, ukufaka izifundo emqondweni wengane. Kodwa ukuthi ingane iziphatha kanjani, akusiwona umsebenzi wothisha kuphela. Nabazali kufanele babambe iqhaza ekufundiseni ingane ukuthi kufanele iziphathe kanjani empilweni jikelele ngoba kuzofika isikhathi lapho izobashiya othisha isiya emhlabeni, isiyobhekana nezinselelo zempilo nekusasa.” Ube esexwayisa abazali ngokuthi baqikelele ukuthi bathengela izinganeizimpahlazesikole,bakugweme ukuthengela izingane izinto ezizozenza zizibone zingcono kunez-

inye ikakhulukazi omakhalekhukhwini ababizayo. Ukhuluma kanjena nje uMadlanduna, kukaningi sibona imbiko yabafundi abaxabane bagcine sebegwazene mhlambe omunye aze afe ngoba kubangwa umakhalekhukhwini, noma usuntshontshiwe. Uma kukhulunywa ngomakhalekhukhwini abaphathwa ngabanye abafundi, akukhulunywa ngalabo makhalekhukhwini abashibhile, okuthiwa ngoshibhulayini (cheap line), kukhulunywa ngezinkunzimalanga eziphethe zonke izindaba zomhlaba lezi. Abaningi balabo makhalekhukhwini, balayishe wonke amanyalaanyantisaumzimba.Ezinyeizingane azilali ebusuku zingcofana nalabo makhalekhukhwini, umzali aze acabange ukuthi zenza umsebenzi wesikole kanti zibukana namanyala. Omunye umzali ubuze ukuthi uma

izingane kungafanele zibe nomakhalekhukhwini, bazoxhumana kanjani nazo uma kunesidingo. UMadlanduna uthe abazali abawafundayo amafomu abathunyelwa wona uma izingane zabo sezemukelwe, bayazi ukuthi ibhaliwe inombolo yocingo yasesikoleni okufanele bayishayele uma kunesidingo. Sithandazela ukuthi kulo nyaka zingabi khona izigameko zokubulala kwezingane ezikoleni kubangwa omakhalekhukhwini, nokubulalana nje jikelele. Kakadeniisikhalisifunaniesikoleni bakithi? Umswenko ufunani esikoleni? Yikho konke lokhu okwenza sivumelane noMadlanduna ukuthi abazali kufanele babambe iqhaza ekwaluseni izingane.

Uma izingane zilingana esikoleni, ingekho ezibona ingcono kunenye, kungancipha ukuklwebhana okungenamsebenzi. Iyancomeka indlela abafundi bakamatikuletsheni bango 2013 abaphase ngayo. Nanxa kukhona ochwepheshe abahlaba okuthile ngezinga le mfundo, awugwemeki umbuzo othi: “Yini eyenza kube nomsindo ongaka uma abamnyama abebecindezelwe ngesikhathi sobandlululo sebekhipha amangwevu?” Okudinga ukushayelwa ihlombe elikhulu, ukuthi kunabafundi basemakhaya ezikoleni ezingenazo izinsizakufunda ezitholakala kwezisemadolobheni kodwa abaphase ngamalengiso. Laba bafundi babhale amaphepha afanayo nalawo abhalwe ngezinye izinhlanga kodwa babashaya emakhanda. Akusimangalisi uma lesi simo singemukeleki kalula kwabanye ikakhulukazi izinhlangano eziphikisayo. Kodwa-ke vele phela umsebenzi wazo UKUPHIKISA. Kubafundi abangaphumelelanga, sithi basenalo elinye ithuba lokwenza ngcono bavuke bazithathe.

Need cuddles and kisses from hubby, not sex

NEED

Dear Doctor Nash, I know this is not a nice letter to start the new year with, but it is my life and I am siek en sat with it. I am 40 years old, married and we have two children, a boy of eight and a girl of four. I was always the strong one. I brought in the money, had the children and ran the house and my job. My husband was married before and has a 13­year­old daughter. He has a job, but I do not know what he earns. I pay for the food, maid and school fees. He pays the bond. Last year I fell ill, depression, and this has affected me badly. My hus­

Dear Mrs. H.L. From your letter you are a loving person who gives much of herself, but as you write you did not marry the same type of person. It may be difficult for your husband to change, but not impossible. Also there is always his side of the story. Remember, it is not easy to live with a depressed per­ son. You want cuddles and kisses, but are not interested in sex. Your poor husband. He gets all excited with cud­ dles and kisses, and then you turn off. I strongly suggest that you go for mar­ riage counselling. You both need a calm supportive situation with a pro­ fessional. Try it, it works.

Boyfriend asked for my hand in marriage, had sex, but no wedding date set Dear Doctor Nash, I am 23, matriculat­ ed and have a permanent job. I have been going out with a guy for the past six months and he asked me to marry him, so we started to have sex. He has always been a little short of money and has al­ ways had problems on his mind which he does not share with me. He has not set a date for us to marry and I started to wor­ ry. I have now found out that he is already married, but he tells me that he is in the middle of a divorce from her and every­ thing will be okay. I really love the guy, but now I am scared, and do not know what to do. If I break up with him and he does divorce will he still want me? Is he really

band comes from a “cold” home and shows little affection. I need love and passion. I want him to value me and take an interest in me. When we mar­ ried he moved in with me, into my house, fully furnished and a very small bond. He refers to it as “my house, my furniture, my everything” and he has not bought a thing. We do not have real conversations. I keep up a pose in front of the children, but I need cuddles and kisses. I do not need sex. Everything must come from my side. How do I get it good doctor?

in the middle of a divorce or is he just kid­ ding me along for the sex? I cannot talk about this with my friends because they will laugh and tell me that I deserve it for being such a fool. Please advise me Doc­ tor Nash. Confidential please. Thank you. Rabbit. Dear Rabbit, Yes, you have been taken for a ride, but none of us are foolproof, so let us just deal with this “sob”. First off, whether he is in the middle of a divorce or not, he has shown that he cannot be trusted. Therefore do not make up with him, he will just have another story.

ation, and your personal recovery from a severe emotional trauma. The first deci­ sion is to break off with him, and you must decide whether you phone him, write to him or meet him. Because he has really sold you a story I suggest that you do not meet with him. You are too vulnerable, unless you take your father or big brother with you — this depends on your family relationships. If you have a very good friend, or are very close with a family member (dad) I would choose to talk it out with someone you can trust. If you are alone, then phone me. Confidentiality and trust is guaran­ teed. Go well.

With County Ford increasing its staff and changes this year, McGregor is pleased to announce the open­ ing of a new used car division of County Ford in Febru­ ary, plans to open a new workshop in May, and the County Ford building moving backwards to create a larger showroom in the foreground in November.

“We don’t need to be the best, but we strive to be the dealership of choice in Port Shepstone,” says McGregor. With a busy schedule ahead of him, McGregor is excited about the changes and sees County Ford reaching new ground in 2014. “I would like to reinforce our commitment to the Ford brand and to the people of the South Coast. We need to invest locally whether it be by business uplift­ ment or community upliftment as we strive for con­ tinuous improvement to provide the excellence our customers deserve,” he says. — Candice Fraser.

Run by Attah­Adusei and Kwaku Oduro, the school has grown in numbers and now sits with about 300 pupils and 14

teachers spread across two cam­ puses. “We have a campus in Aiken Street and another one at St Cath­ erine���s Anglican Church in Port Shepstone,” says Attah­Adusei. Originally from Ghana, Attah­ AduseiholdsaBScHonoursanddi­ ploma in education with many years of teaching under his belt. Chasing his dream of starting his own school as well as a desire to live in South Africa, Attah­Adusei moved his family to Port Shep­ stone in 1994. The school is open from 8am to 3pm, Monday to Friday with free extra lessons provided over week­

ends and during holidays. Believinginthepotentialofthe school, Attah­Adusei would like to see the school expand into a terti­ ary institute. “Wewanttoexpandtheschool in the foreseeable future to pro­ vide tertiary education in degrees and diplomas for our pupils,” says Attah­Adusei.

SOLLY SUPERMARKET

HILE the subject of career choic­ es can be nerve­ racking for many people, it is ulti­ mately a choice they can’t shy away from. Serious introspec­ tion, careful planning supported by a hard­ working ethic can lead to a rewarding and very fulfilling career life. This brings us to answering that criti­ cal question of what it takes to make the right career choice. The fundamental principle in choosing a career is to choose something that one could picture doing and enjoying, with­ out being paid, with­ out getting bored or feeling like you are overdoing it and eventually do for many years. This question and answer opens a number of insightful angles such as hob­ bies one is involved in because many hobbies correspond to what one is pas­ sionate about — constant drawing as a hobby clearly shows career traits of a graphic designer or architect, what academic subjects does one enjoy and excel in at school is a critical aspect be­ cause a particular academic strength may point to a par­ ticular career direc­ tion — a passion for chemistry at school may point to a ca­ reer in chemical en­ gineering, interper­ sonal skills and gen­ eral character can also be a pointer — if you are more into taking care of oth­ ers, consider nursing as a career. While the follow­ ing factor may not be a career deal maker or breaker, current financial sta­ tus can also be an important factor to consider in choosing a career because cer­ tain careers, like be­ ing a pilot, requires special schooling and can be expen­ sive to finance. Above these es­ tablished fundamen­ tals is the need for someone to consider career opportunities available in a partic­ ular field of work and paying attention to future financial security. In this re­ gard, choosing a ca­ reer in which one can easily get em­ ployed and gain sta­ bility is always the best option, but even more para­ mount is getting into a career in which one will be able to gain acceptable lev­ els of financial secu­ rity. — Supplied

Tourism ethics and protocol

B

EING a service-related industry, tourism has to be based on the application of sound operational ethics, high standards of service and compliance with regulatory frameworks that apply to the sector. Recently South Africa’s tourism has been hit with a spate of fraudulent Internet-orientated bookings and the greater South Coast has not been immune. Ugu South Coast Tourism has assisted where possible to bring this matter to our provincial authority and the public’s attention so that such illegal action is negated to a large degree. As per normal, some of our valued visitors have had cause for concern relating to the quality of their hospitality and in instances where a property has been at fault we have managed to secure refunds (much to the delight and praise of the aggrieved tourist). The message is quite clear — we need to be vigilant to these occurrences as this can lead to major damage to our destination’s reputation. For this reason, and to add credibility to our tourism members, we, in conjunction with all our area committees, have adopted

a protocol to which our members are expected to be respectful of regulations, client needs and expectations and social and natural environments. Through this the better part of our tourism sector in southern KwaZulu-Natal will attain a higher level of respect from authorities, the tourism trade and our tourists in particular. We have certain checks and balances that we uphold when tourism practitioners join Ugu South Coast Tourism and also register with the province’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism and this, in our opinion, is a means of sorting out the fly-bynighters from quality service providers. We then encourage prospective visitors wishing to come to the greater South Coast to support our members and in so doing are comforted by the fact that generally their stay will have the highest prospect of success. Should we all approach our tourism within the principle of ethics and sound operational practices, I have no doubt that the paradise we intend to sustain will recover its rightful place as one of South Africa’s favourite destinations.

‘Big Fish’ out to clinch KZN Open QUINTIN VAN JAARSVELD

THE country’s leading amateur golfers will be eager to get the 2014 season under­ way on a winning note in the KwaZulu­ Natal Open Stroke­ play Championships at Victoria Country Club this weekend. Gavin Sole will be among the star­stud­ ded field that will al­ so include former Pro­ teas captain Shaun Pollock and the Southbroom veteran will be determined to finally add the Kwa­ Zulu­Natal Open Strokeplay title to his résumé. Sole, however, isn’t putting too much pressure on himself. “My expectations aren’t as high as usu­ al as I haven’t played a lot over the past two months, but it’s the one title that has eluded me, so I’ll defi­ nitely give it my all,” Sole told the Fever. Sole recently won the San Lameer Open for the seventh con­ secutive time, which serves as a confidence booster going into the 2014 season opener. “The fact that I won my last competition gives me some confi­ dence but you really need to play consist­ ently to stay at your best, so I’m heading into the tournament not really knowing what to expect.” The 2013 Southern KwaZulu­Natal Open winner believes play­ ing at his former home course will stand him in good stead but he knows he will have his work cut out for him. “Although they’ve made a few changes, I know the course quite well. The greens are very quick, which is something you have to adapt to, and it’s inland, so we won’t have the coastal winds I’m used to. “The competition is bound to be tough given it’s the KZN Open Preview, but if the putts drop you never know.”

The Ladies KZN LGU Medal was also played on Saturday and saw Hilary Hendry prevail on 68 nett. Anita Scheepers was sec­ ond on 69 nett and Maureen Ogilvie third on 71 nett. Piet Ludick won Thursday’s indi­ vidual stableford on 40 points, Eddie Scheepers, Dave Boyd and Otto Mutschler (83 points) beat Tony Peace, Rod O’Farrell andRobBrienonacountouttowinWednes­

world in her prime, said boosting women’s surfing is particularly close to her heart. “The more girls there are in the water, the better. I spent over 14 years competing on the ASP [Association of Surfing Professionals] World Tour and I would love for more South African girls to be able to do the same and experience the same. “Bianca Buitendag is currently flying our flag high on the WCT [World Championship Tour] and I’m 110% sure she will keep herself at the top for years to come. Sarah Baum is also currently on the WQS [World Qualifying Series] and I’m sure she will break onto the WCT next year.” Clark not only refines the skills of promising young surfers but also introduces people of all ages and walks of life to the sport through her surf school.“Igettodolearntosurflessons to kids from the ages of four up to 60 year olds on weekend and before work. I was very busy with lessons this December; I would start as early as 5am as the morning is the best time tobeinthesurf,itstartsoffyourwhole day. “It’s so fulfilling; when everyone does so well and stands and rides theirfirsteverwave,theygetsohappy and stoked. I think I get even more happy and excited than them and I just love seeing the look and joy on the kids’ faces.” It’s through her surf school that Clark in December met her “hero”, 16-year-old Brand Coetzee of Pretoria, who was born without his right hand and realised his dream of surfing during three lessons with Clark at Uvongo and St Michaels. “Brand’s learn to surf lessons were the most inspirational I have ever given. He did fantastic for his first ever lesson; he was able to stand and we managed to go further out where he also caught and surfed some real waves. He started on a 9’2 and went down to a 7’10 board. He’s my hero.” Coetzee, who attends Affies, told the Fever: “I’ve always wanted to surf and to be able to learn from a South African champion made the experience that much more special. It wasn’t an out-and-out lesson in the sense that she told me do this and do that. Heather introduced me to the love of surfing and I had a great time.”
