2016 REUVEN COMMITTEE

Letter by Caroline Ngoasheng, Reuven Senior Complex Social Group Chairperson In response to a letter to the editor, written by Mr L.D. van der Merwe, regarding the operations of the Reuven Senior Complex Committee, I wish to draw Mr van der Merwe’s attention to the following: Just a few months after Mr van der Merwe moved into Reuven, he approached us and asked to join the committee. We explained to him that the committee is no longer functioning because we are left with four members which is not enough to form a quorum. This is due to deaths and illnesses of members and some leaving on their own accord. All our efforts to find new members to resuscitate the committee were in vain. As a social club we serve as a channel through which the various organisations, societies, schools, churches, religious, cultural and social bodies wish to reach out to the elderly at Reuven. Our group, with the help of a few volunteers, prepare the communal hall, side-hall, and other facilities, such as the kitchen, for functions. We also let residents know about activities via the distribution of pamphlets, the notice board, by advertising in the media or by word of mouth. We assist with the cooking and preparation of food or niceties as well as distribute food and grocery parcels. The facilities need to be prepared and to be cleaned before and after the activities, which is an enormous task for old people. None of us get paid, we all do it

voluntarily, and no one has ever been asked to be paid for work done at the complex. Members of our group can be alerted at any time of the day or night to assist the sick and those who are dying. Members also help with funeral arrangements and memorial services in cases where there are no families. If need be, we make a collection for those that cannot afford such services. Acknowledgment, words of encouragement and appreciation from the residents are few, but criticism and derogatory remarks are too many to name. Despite the negativity we are blasted with, we will continue because we have pledged to serve our fellowmen with love and compassion. If Mr van der Merwe has any proof of the social group’s wrong doings, we advise him to go to the police to lay charges of theft, misconduct or wrongdoing. We are surprised that he never approached or challenged us with any of his unfounded accusations, but instead chose to covertly go direct to the media to “supposedly” expose us. We regrettably find Mr van der Merwe’s immature reaction not only childish but despicable.

EDITOR’S RESPONSE:

Dear Caroline, I would advise that the committee addresses this matter directly with Mr van der Merwe.

GREEN HUGS

Letter by Jessica Janse Van Rensburg When we were knee high we were told that sweets, chocolates, fizzy drinks and all things sugary is bad for us but did we take our parents serious? Well now is a good time. According to research, the impact of Sugar Sweetened Beverages (SSB) on the overall health of the South African population is believed to be worsening, contributing to rapidly increasing levels of diabetes, and with obesity levels growing among women to 39% and 11% among men. Director of Priority Cost Effective Lessons for System Strengthening (PRICELESS SA), Professor Karen Hofman highlighted that drinking one to two SSBs a day increases an adult’s likelihood of being overweight by 27% and by 55% in children. It also increases the risk of developing type II diabetes. She added that in the case of a 500ml SSB, there are probably 12 to 14 teaspoons of sugar while in a 2-litre SSB there are 50 teaspoons of sugar. With South Africa being among the 10 global consumers of sugary drinks, we possibly face a dire situation of growing deaths and disabilities in the next few years, including an overwhelmed health system with the poor set to be the most affected. The proposed SSB tax, due for implementation in 2017, could potentially be one of the effective measures to address this challenge. According to PRICELESS SA, a 20% tax on SSBs could reduce the number of obese people by almost a quarter of a million over the next three to five years. And now all this sweet talk has put Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar on Me in my head.

Dear Candace, I was looking through all of the newspaper articles that you wrote about me last year and I really can’t thank you enough for all of your support. The team at tame TIMES is of an impeccable standard and I look forward to reading your feel-good stories every week! I would not have been as successful in my Miss Earth South Africa endeavours had I not had you around to share the news. I am very grateful.

EDITOR’S RESPONSE:

Dear Jessica, thank you for the kind words. At tame TIMES it’s all about spreading positive and newsworthy stories that benefit the community as a whole. Keep up the good green work that you are doing out there.

NEW PARK IN SUIDEROORD Letter by Jayne Mcauliffe

There is a new park in Suideroord which has been built for children in the area. However, more often than not once the sun goes down, cars drive right up to the park and play loud music, and sometimes firecrackers are let off. I have called the police many times regarding this. The problem is that it’s right in the middle of a huge open space, and by

the time anyone reaches them, the music is turned down and sometimes they drive off. There is no boundary fence so there is nothing to stop the cars driving right up to the park area. Also there are no lights whatsoever. What are adults doing in the park after dark? This is a residential area and there are houses surrounding the entire park. Apparently this was meant to be a skate park in the beginning, but not one resident was consulted or advised that a park would be built. As a park it’s very beautiful, with benches and walking paths all around it. However, even though there are dustbins at Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite least every 15 metres, litter (including Catholic Church in Mulbarton broken bottles) is still thrown all over would like to inform the the grass. It could be a very nice park community that there will be a – but this is becoming a gathering area fireworks display at its church for teenagers making a noise.

NOTICE

festival on Sunday 22 May between 06:15pm and 06:45pm to mark the church’s 15th anniversary.

EDITOR’S RESPONSE:

Dear Jayne, I have contacted Ward 54 Councillor Sergio dos Santos for comment.

FIRST MISS AFRICA CONTINENT CROWNED Candace Sofianos King

candace.king@tametimes.co.za Meet Rebecca Asamoah, a 24-year-old dental hygienist from Ghana who became the first ever Miss Africa Continent. The Miss Ghana 2015 second runner up became the first woman in history to be crowned Miss Africa Continent 2016 on Saturday 30 April at The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City. Asamoah beat 11 finalists drawn from an original list of 40 c o n te s ta n t s f r o m

across the African continent in the inaugural pageant. Asamoah was crowned ahead of Zambian contestant, Michelo Malambo and South African contestant, Jemimah Kandemiiri who placed second and third respectively. “It feels great. I’m very humbled,” says Asamoah on her Miss Africa Continent 2016 title. “The Miss Africa Continent pageant is a platform and a great opportunity for me to help my sisters from other countries so we can unite Africa and build the continent to the best of our abilities,” she adds. Reflecting on her crowning, Asamoah describes it as a “Steve Harvey moment”. Like American comedian Steve Harvey’s announcement of the incorrect winner of the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, Asamoah was initially crowned Second Princess. “Everyone was shocked and confused. I was called back and just returned gracefully to be crowned Miss Africa Continent 2016,” laughs Asamoah. “To me it doesn’t matter who receives the crown, because at the end of the day we are all going to work together to promote our countries, cultures and

the continent as a whole,” believes Asamoah. “Each and every contestant was unique and intelligent in their own way,” she adds. Asamoah’s dream is to start a project in South Africa to empower, educate and motivate the youth. Apart from education, the young beauty queen wishes to improve the health sector. In Ghana, Asamoah is the brand ambassador for the National Blood Service, and through this, she aims to educate people about donating blood. Thirdly, she would love to work hand in hand with various African wildlife conservation organisations to help save our environment. Asamoah returned to Ghana on Wednesday 11 May where she was warmly greeted and congratulated at the Kotoka International Airport by Ghanaian Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Dzifa Gomashie. Going forward, Asamoah’s ultimate goal is to bring the continent together. “Africa belongs to us – the onus does not lie on the individual; it’s a collective responsibility,” she says.

ADVERTORIAL

The Johannesburg SPCA recently took in an owl that was not flying and placed it in a rehabilitation centre. JSPCA Chief Inspector Ronald Ramalata brought in the owl which was then examined by the vet. Extremely fond of wildlife and birds, Sr Jerusha gently handled the owl while the vet took a look at it. “Our veterinary team’s expertise and care is not only limited to the four-legged fur babies,” says JSPCA spokesperson Jolene Beyleveld. “Fortunately the owl was not injured and the reason he was not active was he was a little underweight. He has been taken to an owl rehabilitation centre for further care until he is well enough to be released,” explains Beyleveld. “Many people think these magnificent creatures are bad luck and superstitious beliefs result in cruelty cases. They are extremely important in maintaining a balanced ecosystem and we urge the public to respect all living creatures, no matter how big or small. They each serve a purpose in our interconnected and interdependent existence,” adds Beyleveld.

On Saturday 07 May, Figures Models Glenvista hosted its International Model of the Year competition along with its showcase event at The Glen Shopping Centre. “The International Model of the Year show impressed not only the judges but also the visitors at The Glen,” says Figures Models Glenvista owner Natacha Thompson. “Former Figures Models Glenvista model and Miss South Africa 2016 top eight finalist Schane Venter said she was blown away by the level of talent from the models who entered the show,” adds Thompson. 15 finalists were chosen to represent Figures Models Glenvista at the finals which will be held on Saturday 04 June at the Roodepoort Theatre where the top model stands a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to New York and compete at the International Modeling and Talent Association Convention in the hopes of being scouted by an international modelling agency. “The day also played host to a showcase event themed ‘A Blast from the Past’ where all the Figures Models Glenvista students showcased outfits that blew the judges away. The students were judged on the outfits only and the winning outfits were out right winners,” notes Thompson. Thompson highlights that the main aim of the show is to build the students’ self confidence and self esteem through performing in front of a live audience. The input and effort from the parents is what makes these shows a success, she adds. Thompson would like to wish all her international finalists good luck and hopes the title comes home to Glenvista. She would also like to thank all her students, parents and The Glen Shopping Centre for all their support.

REFLECTIONS ON DAILY

SENIOR LIFE

● ● ●

● ●

Old age is coming at a really bad time even though I’ve had 60 years to prepare for it! When I was a child I thought my nap time was a form of punishment. Now, as a grown up, it feels like a small vacation!

● ●

I didn’t make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row. I decided to change calling the bathroom “the John” and renamed it “the Jim”. I feel so much better saying I went to “the Jim” this morning.

The biggest lie I tell myself is: “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.” I don’t need anger management. I need people to stop irritating me! Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven’t met yet!

Wellness Wednesdays Registered homeopath Dr Bianca D. Goncalves is offering the community something special – ‘pay what you can’ homeopathic treatment on Wednesdays at the Centesimal Wellness Homeopathic Practice, situated at 99 Michelle Avenue in Randhart. “Wellness Wednesdays is an initiative I got from a very dear lecturer from the University of Johannesburg – it provides an opportunity for members of the community who need medical care but cannot afford it to seek advice on an ailment and they only pay what they can afford which often enough is between R100 and R200,” explains Dr Goncalves.

You know that tingly little feeling you used to get when you really liked someone when you were younger. That’s common sense leaving your body.

I don’t like making plans for the day because then

I came across these funny but true pensioner-related anecdotes. I hope you enjoy them! the word “premeditated” gets thrown around in the courtroom.

● ● ● ● ● ● ●

My people skills are just fine. It’s my tolerance to idiots that needs work. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees!

to someone I can’t understand anyway?

● ●

Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advice. Oops! Did I roll my eyes out loud?

The kids text me “plz” which is shorter than “please”. I text back “no” which is shorter than “yes”. Gone are the days when girls used to cook like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers! I’m going to retire and live off my savings. Not sure what I’ll do for the second week. Even duct tape can’t fix stupid…but it can muffle the sound! Why do I have to press one for English when you’re just going to transfer me

“I absolutely love Wellness Wednesdays as every patient is a new opportunity to learn more about the wonderful range of homeopathic medicines available,” says Dr Goncalves. “I’ve seen my elderly patients having regained interest in their old hobbies again like gardening from newly found vitality. I love being a homeopath and Wellness Wednesdays makes it even better,” she adds. The money collected on Wellness Wednesdays is saved and at the end of the year it gets donated or spent on charities for kids and the elderly. “I gave some money to a single mother who couldn’t afford groceries for her children; she was so grateful and I was grateful that I had an opportunity to help her,” notes Dr Goncalves. “I am celebrating my first year in practice this June and want to thank every patient of mine that helped me grow and see the marvel of homeopathy. It is growing day by day and I cannot thank you enough!” she adds.

COLLISION: Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton (behind) and Nico Rosberg refused to take blame for crash in Formula One Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg refused to apportion blame for their opening-lap collision at Barcelona on Sunday 15 May, but both offered differing views of what the stewards deemed was ultimately a racing incident. The pair were both eliminated from the Formula One Spanish Grand Prix race after colliding while battling for the lead on the run down to Turn 4 on the opening lap, with Hamilton losing control of his Mercedes after being squeezed onto the grass by team mate Rosberg. Both drivers were summoned to see the stewards, who decreed that neither driver should be penalised. And while both men apologised to the team, their opinions on the contact differed. “I was aware of the situation, I saw Lewis coming closer,” Rosberg explained, “so I went for the usual racing driver action of closing the door as early as I could. “I was making it clear I wasn’t leaving any space, so I was very surprised that he went for the gap anyway. “The stewards decided it was a race incident, so we will accept that – we will leave it at that. “It was my race and our [Mercedes’] race to win – I was here to win, that’s what I was looking forward to and what I was really

excited about at Turn 1 after getting past Lewis. “So for us to end in the sandtrap like that - it is as bad as it gets.” Hamilton added: “First of all, a huge apology to all of our team - when I stopped my heart just sank. To not deliver for them, it’s honestly… indescribable how gutted I was. “I got a good start but he [Rosberg] slipstreamed me into Turn 1. Then through Turn 3 he had a d-rate – basically he made a mistake and started in the wrong engine setting. We only have one setting for maximum power and he wasn’t in it, which meant he was like 180bhp down. “I’m not getting into blame, just a huge apology to the team. I’ll do everything I can to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Don’t have a good feeling this second, but we will recover.” Hamilton’s retirement means he drops to third in the drivers’ championship, four points behind Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and 43 behind leader Rosberg. The Spanish Grand Prix saw Red Bull’s Max Verstappen win the race while Raikkonen came second with his team mate Sebastian Vettel in third. At the tender age of 18, Verstappen became the youngest Formula One winner in history. (Source: www.formula1.com)
