Knife­wielding muggers chase hikers TERESA FISCHER

A

SECOND hiker has broken a leg trying to escape muggers on the mountain. The latest incident happened on the Karbonkelberg in Hout Bay on Saturday 19 November and involved three suspects, one of whom was allegedly armed with a knife. Earlier this month, a 23-yearold man from Rondebosch broke his leg running away from two men between Devils’s Peak and the Rhodes Memorial. (“Mountain muggers escape,” People’s Post, 8 November 2011) It was reported that JJ Badenhorst (33) of Greenpoint and his friend, Thea Burger, fell 10-15m. Burger managed to land on her feet and ran about two kilometres

to fetch help. Merle Collins, SanParks spokesperson says police are still investigating the incident. Meanwhile one of the victims of a mugging, which occurred on Wednesday 16 November, has praised the excellent response he received from SanParks. This incident was widely reported as having happened in Cecilia Forest, but Mike Heime insists it actually happened in Kirstenbosch Gardens, in the nursery section of the gardens, where the plants are grown. He says this is the route that people with dogs would walk when accessing the mountain through the gardens. Collins confirms the incident happened in Kirstenbosch Gardens, but the relevant spokesperson from Kirstenbosch could not be reached by the time of go-

ing to press. Heime says he was walking with a group of five women when they were pounced on by two men, who appeared to be armed, at about 11:30. “I laid into them with my walking stick,” says Heime. One of the women also prodded one of the muggers with her stick. The muggers managed to rip a backpack off one the women, but they were later caught at Constantia Nek. Heime, who is from Llandudno, phoned TMNP senior section ranger, Hilton Blumeris, on his cellphone.“The Parks Board gets such adverse publicity, but their response was excellent.” Heime says police, rangers with dogs and Mountain Men Security all joined in the search.The suspects were walking casually down from the car park when they walked straight into the arms of the

Mountain Men Security. The group had managed to give a good description of the pair. Table Mountain Safety Forum chairperson, Marc Truss, extended his sympathies to the recent victims. He says the voluntary forum faces a “logistical nightmare” trying to facilitate communication between all the roleplayers, but that they were not going to give up and would continue to put preventative measures in place. In July Claudio Massenz (26) fractured his skull after a fall above Rhodes Memorial while trying to evade his attackers.

Buy local this festive season AS part of the 93 000 Jobs for Mandela Day Campaign, Proudly South African (PDSA) has launched a Buy Local this Festive Season Campaign.

Director of Mag-Mark, Toni Tickon, speaks about being Proudly South African and keeping it locally-made. Mag-Mark® – a South African company producing magnetic keepsake products – was established in 1994. The company started out with three staff members and now employs two staff. “Our flagship product is the unique, patented Mag-Mark® bookmark, which has small magnets on the inside and clips over the page so it stays put, says Tickon. “This is ideal for small gifts, greeting cards, gift tags, souvenirs and giveaways. We place emphasise quality, and carefully magnetise our products by hand to support local employment. These MagMarks® can be customised with

your own designs. We also produce a range of fridge magnets and button badges.” He says the new, expanded, range includes beaded key rings and beaded fridge magnets, Foto MagMarks® and portrait fridge magnets. The products are sold mainly at tourist and curios shops, and bookshops such as Exclusive Books countrywide. Tickon says challenges faced by the company has been “the reduced sales as a direct result of cheap Chinese imports and reduced inflows from the tourism market.” “We chose to be Proudly South African because our products are nearly 100% South African and we are really proud of that. We have found that being Proudly South African is also becoming a real incentive to local customers.” His inspirational words for South African consumers and entrepreneurs are: “Vasbyt, things will get better!”

Change the world, one tin at a time TAMMY PETERSEN

DO YOU have canned goods stacked in the back of your cupboards because the children don’t like what’s inside? Or did you buy more groceries than you needed? Donate it to a worthy cause – there are people in your community who need it. Living Hope, in conjunction with People’s Post and Fruit and Veg City, will be spreading the cheer with hampers of hope to disadvantaged communities and they need your help to make it a success. By donating dry food items or canned goods, you can spread the Christmas cheer to those who are facing trying times. Living Hope has been offering help for the past 10 years. The organisation consists of four ministries – Living Grace, Living Right, Living Way and Living Care – each performing a vital role in the upliftment of commu-

nities in Ocean View, Masiphumelele, Fish Hoek, Red Hill and Capricorn. Living Grace is a ministry in Muizenberg, which acts as a safe haven for the homeless. It is not a shelter, as such, but a place where the needy can store their belongings in a locker, eat a breakfast and lunch, or just take a quick shower. There is also a Substance Abuse Recovery Programme, which gives people a hand-up (onto their feet) instead of a handout. Living Right is divided into three sections. The first consists of health counsellors who come from the community they work in. They help with health-related inquiries and also educate people on chronic diseases and the importance of knowing their HIV status. The second section consists of support group facilitators, who meet people on a weekly basis and help them work through

their life issues. The third section comprises life skills educators, who teach children from a young age. The Living Right ministry is, in essence, all about prevention. Not everybody has the time to get involved in charity work, but a simple donation will help you bring some sunlight to a family’s holiday season. Interested in making a change? Drop your donation into any marked box at a Fruit and Veg City store in the greater Cape Town area; at People’s Post’s office in Tokai; or at Living Hope in Capri, and consider it your good deed for the month. In early December, the food will be made into Hampers of Hope and distributed to the communities in need. For more information, phone Karen Peiser on 083 465 9594. Start packing – you only have until 2 December to change a family’s outlook on life.

Martial music concert MILITARY music lovers take note that the Army Band Cape Town will hold its annual year-end Gala Concert on Friday 2 December in

Carnival confirmed DALEEN FOUCHÉ

THE annual eMzantsi carnival will take place on 3 December as planned, due to the generosity of a local bank. Last week, People’s Post reported that the carnival was in jeopardy, due to delayed payment from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) (“Far South carnival in jeopardy,” People’s Post, 15 November 2011). Sam Pearce, managing director of the Harlequin Foundation, the NPO that administers the eMzantsi community-building project, says Standard Bank in Fish Hoek approved an overdraft up to the level of the foundation’s assets, which accumulates to R250 000. Pearce says the bridging finance from Standard Bank

will cover the “most urgent costs” for the day. “We would like to thank them for their faith and support.” The delay in approval of funds was allegedly caused by a request for deviation from the original use of grant money, in the most recent progress report. Pearce, however, says the deviation was requested in July 2010. The NLDTF is yet to make their decision regarding funding for the Harlquin Foundation and will decide during a meeting on 23 November. Pearce says the eMzantsi team is “relieved” that the carnival will go ahead as planned. She says the team is also finding innovative and creative ways to save money, like “recycling” last year’s posters. The Harlequin Foundation Board also paid tribute to the eMzantsi team of staff, facilitators

and mapiko crew who have committed to working without pay this month. “They ensured that the hundreds of children and youth on our pre-primary, primary, high CARNIVAL FUN: Great fun was had at last year’s eM­ school and in- zantsi carnival.

The importance of daytime flash JOHN RAYNER

THE sun casts shadows – we cannot escape them. If it is directly overhead, your subject, pretty Suzie, will have ugly shadows under her nose and eyes. When your subject has its back to the light (a beautiful setting sun), it will be seen in silhouette. Don’t get me wrong, shadows can be put to good use sometimes, but generally a photo of loved one down at the beach can be quite a challenge. The problem is that there are extremes dark shadows and very bright highlights. Our eyes can accommodate these extremes,

but is is beyond the capabilities of a camera. Never fear – help is at hand in the form of the most under-used piece of equipment on a camera: the flash. Many folk tend to think night time is the only time it needs to be used. Well, that just ain’t true. The average on-board DSLR flash has an effective range of between 2 and 3m (yes, it can be extended by upping the ISO, but for now, let’s keep things simple). Imagine you are out in the countryside with family. The sun is beating down and their faces are in shadow. You could ask them to turn into the sun, but then you would have squinting, screwedup faces. Turned a little to one side, and the shadow of their noses will extend right across their cheeks. Pop up the on-board flash on your camera and set it onto Fill Flash – the little lightning bolt. Under normal circumstances, because the camera registers “enough” light, it would not go off, but now you are forcing the camera to activate the flash. You want to fill in those unsightly shadows with a touch of Fill Flash. This can be adjusted just as you did with the exposure compensation, with a plus or minus value depending on the result of your first attempt. A sunset cruise with your significant other can be handled the same way – a little fill flash and Mother Nature, painting beautiful colours in the sky in the background, and you will be able to capture the moment of both subjects. This method can be used any time and on any subject where shadows are a bother. You will not remove them totally, but by gently softening them you will be able to rescue an unacceptable scene from the Dark Side.

Fruit and Veg City caters for all REYANA STEYN

FOR a shopping experience you won’t easily forget, visit the newly revamped Fruit and Veg City Store in Access Park, Kenilworth, which now boasts a strictly halaal butchery. This Fruit and Veg store is the

first in its stable to launch a 280 square metre halaal butchery. An extensive R10 million revamp was carried out at the store, and on Friday they celebrate the first year of its operation. “With this state-of-the-art halaal butchery we can provide great service to all shoppers,” says Shaun Te Roller, co-owner of the butchery.

TO THE CUT: Butchery manager William Xuba cuts the meat to perfection.

ADVERTORIAL

“Our shoppers come first,” says Te Roller. The butchery is the largest halaal butchery within a super market. It is accredited and approved by the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC). John Billing, Fruit and Veg Store manager, adds that another benefit of the halaal butchery is that customers can have the meat cut according to their personal needs. “We have our fingers on the pulse and try to cater to all the shoppers’ needs.” There is also a variety of tasty meats bathed in a selection of delicious marinades. The bakery offers delicious, freshly baked breads and pastries of all sorts are available. The fresh produce is of the highest quality. A team of 15 friendly, qualified staff are ready to assist all shoppers, while the Fruit and Veg management team promises “the best products at the cheapest cost.” Fruit and Veg City was established in 1993 by the brothers Brian and Mike Coppin. The Fruit and Veg Store has always been a family business, and has placed emphasis on good old family values such as wholesomeness, trust, honesty and integrity.

The Coppin brothers’ vision was to create a store that would resemble a marketplace of old; where farmers brought their fresh produce from their farms to be sold to the public. This was how their first store in Access Park was run, and the same model is used across the rest of the chain of ten stores in the Western Cape. The chain has expanded to offer dairy, baked goods, meat, fish, dried fruit and nuts, cheese and continental delis.

Tuesday 22 November 2011

Turn the tide WITH less than five weeks to Christmas, one would imagine that the prevailing mood is one of lightness, joy and the anticipation of a carefree, well-earned summer holiday. On one side of the spectrum, this is a reality, with many excitedly planning their yearend getaways and time with friends and family. Sadly, on the opposite end, the “season to be jolly” has been marred by the loss of loved ones and fear of an increase in violence and criminal activity. In areas characterised by poverty, crime is rampant this time of year; literally harvest season for criminals. In fulfilling our obligation to report news the public ought to know, this week’s People’s Post carries reports about serious crimes, including that of a teenager reportedly attacked by other teens. Bryce Van Gee was attacked by two boys; one allegedly hit him over the head with nunchucks. Bryce, 14, died of his injuries. His mother and two younger brothers will never see their Boeta again. The front page of our Lansdowne edition has a story about the rape of two minors just days before the 16 Days of Activism campaign, and our Athlone edition has a story about a brutal fight between high school pupils that ended with both being stabbed. How does one end the cycle of violence? Among other considerations, the solution could lie in communities taking a firm stand and reclaiming their streets, as the residents of Rocklands, Mitchell’s Plain, had done during a Take Back Your Streets campaign. Led by local police, they expressed their discontent at yet another spate of gang-related shootings. Though not instantly measurable, the success of such initiatives depends on consistent action and partnerships with police and other crime-fighting bodies. Never stop voicing your protest against those who turn your neighbourhoods into battlefields.

Your SMSes Enjoy a local mini holiday IN the area of Steurhof, between Plumstead and Diep River, where I live, you can park on various bridges surrounding the area. While having a picnic in the car you have a panoramic view of the Constantiaberg mountains, with Elephant Eye quite prominent; the farmlands; the fullness of the back of Table Mountain right to Doves Peak (also locally known as Devils Peak). Exloring further afield, I discovered the vlei areas such as Princess Vlei, the Elfindale area and Wetlands. In that vicinity and further afield I discovered Die Oog in Bergvliet. I ventured into Constantia and discovered various places where one can park one’s vehicle and explore on foot the diverse trails through tranquill forests, or just sit there

and enjoy the ambience. Is this not priceless: a major holiday to recharge the batteries. My mom and I drove to Constantia with our dog, Rocky, for a change of scenery. We took him for a walk along the trails and subsequently the views to the Cedarburg Mountain range. We proceeded to Bergvliet and stopped in a section which offers a panoramic view of the mountains and farmlands. We then proceeded to the Meadowridge Shopping Centre and bought two Magnum ice creams, drove to the bridge, pulled over and parked to eat our ice cream, while absorbing the views of this part of the Cape. We are local tourists. KEITH A. VINCENT Plumstead

Thank you for helping Sokkies OUR beloved pet, Sokkies, of fifteen and a half years was put to rest on 15 October 2011. It was the most difficult decision of our lives. Sokkies was a lovable, courageous pet and will never be forgotten. She survived many heart seizures, drowning, landing under a 4x4 vehicle and a “cat” fight. Sokkies was the last of a litter of seven “mixed’ Boston terrier puppies.

Thanks to Mr Carlos De Gouveia for bringing such a blessing into our lives. I especially want to thank Duncan, Paulette and the staff of the Plumstead veterinary hospital for their dedicated service and patience throughout the past nine years. They were always there when Sokkies needed them. LOURENS AND HILDA SCHOEMAN Plumstead

. To the driver of the white company bakkie, you should know better than to throw your garbage out of the window (Main Road/De Waal Road intersection, Monday 14 October at 10:00). Keep a bag in the car and throw it away later. NJ, Kirstenhof In response . Sheikh MA Jardien is correct that certain businesses make huge profits and could do more to alleviate poverty. However, taxing whites who benefited from apartheid won’t help to alleviate poverty. What is needed is not more money, but the ability to use what they already have. Government has admitted it doesn’t have enough suitably qualified people to implement its strategies. And it refuses to appoint whites. . Many years ago our egg sizes were reclassified. Small became medium and medium became large. I do not know why. Return of the minstrels . If you don’t like the minstrels, let the people who like it enjoy it. We are living in a democratic society so let the minstrels practice their right to enjoy themselves in the streets of Cape Town. Maybe I dislike something the anti-

minstrels do, but it doesn’t give me the right to object to what you like. . The return of the minstrels is fine, but please, City of Cape Town, get rid of the gazebos on the pavements. AB, Woodstock . Why do the minstrels get recognised, but the Christmas bands don’t? Money gets donated to them, but not to the choirs! Mr Meyer Just a thought . I can’t understand why Crime Stop numbers must be so long. When you are in a panic, traumatised and shaking like a leaf, you can’t even think properly. Why all these long numbers? Only three simple digits please! . Were the kids, who threw a fireworks “bomb” at my lounge door, meaning to blow me and my dogs up? You could not have known the door was closed. Had the door been open this would have put your parents in jail and you in juvenile detention. . Why is it that when you buy stuff that has, say, a oneyear guarantee, you get an invoice and you are told to keep the slip as proof. But after five months you find that the ink on the invoice has completely faded away. Can someone please explain that? . I am very disappointed with the Telkom service. It has been over a week now and I am still waiting for the line to be put up in Ottery, Wynberg and who knows where else. All Telkom can say is that it’s due to cable theft! This is not good enough.

There was no follow up with users who were left in the dark, as usual. Can’t they fix it? It will be Christmas soon. I hope it will be sorted out soon. This is very bad service! Roy Smiltneek, Ottery Please help . Can anyone who knows Eugene Cupido, whose last address was in Westridge, please contact Charmaine Jason (née Murphy) on 084 320 1963 or Shafiek Kenny on 074 722 8711? We attended Athwood Primary in the 1970s and we need to contact him urgently. Thank you! . I’m a pensioner and money is very tight. I would like to knit children’s jerseys to sell. I would be so grateful for knitting patterns especially those with cables for 4 to 10 years. I have a fax at home if anyone would like to send a copy. Please forward it to (021) 705 4040. Thank you in anticipation. Jean Guriah . Bid asseblief vir my man. Hy is op ’n waglys vir ‘n nieroorplanting. Hy is tans op dialise. By the way . What is up with Colgate? It used to be 100ml, now the tube is longer but it’s 75ml, and you still pay more for it. Give less plastic and more paste please. The same goes for the soap bars. They were 100g, now they are 90g and you also pay more for less product. Going unnoticed? . We no longer can play with God. His grace and mercy is running out. Carmen Joseph

Libraries will not lock groups out

Be careful – you could be next ON Monday we returned home from work at around 16:45 to find our house ransacked. We have safety gates on all outside doors and strong Spanish burglar bars on all the windows. The burglars had come in through the roof by removing four of the tiles. They robbed us of a computer monitor, my

BMX bicycle and a precious heirloom ring. The detectives were amazed, because it is highly unusual for these scumbags to make so much effort to gain access to one house. I’m warning everyone to be careful and keep an eye out! KATE Plumstead

Dividing is not multiplying IN response to the letter written by Sheikh Ma Jardien (“Tax businesses which benefited,” People’s Post, 15 November 2011), I have the following comments: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first

take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation. BARRY THEUNISSEN Muizenberg

Metrorail needs competition FOR the first time I agree with Tony Ehrenreich that something should be done about Metrorail. I am fortunate not to need Metrorail’s chaotic services, but I have family and friends who use the service. They are either late or don't turn up at all. Sometimes people have to run up and down

the different platforms, only to miss their train because of wrong announcements. What a way to treat your loyal commuters! They have no competition: that’s why they do what they want. They even beat Eskom for poor service. JASMINE UYS Athlone

I WRITE as a member of the Pinelands Bridge Club. I want to bring to the attention of the public a situation that affects all community facilities linked to public libraries in Cape Town. Pinelands Bridge Club has had the use of the hall in the Pinelands library building ever since it was built, some 20 years ago. We play our bridge in the evening. This is how it works: we collect the key to the building during library hours; we can then let ourselves in; and at the end of the evening we drop the key in the library’s (secure) letter box. We were recently told that, from early next year, we would no longer be able to use the hall. The reason given by the library staff was that a library hall in Khayalitsha had been vandalised and as a result no community facility in the Cape Metropole, linked to a library, would be available outside of Library hours. This means evenings and weekends. This will be devastating for the many groups who rely on these public facilities for their cultural and community activities. The most affected will be working people whose rates and taxes support these venues and who deserve their recreation time. I know of clubs that use library halls for annual general, and other, meetings and of a model railway club that uses a hall from Friday evening to Sunday evening. I cannot see them, or a scrabble, or chess club “trashing” a venue that they appreciate using. The City Council owes us an explanation. How can the misuse of a hall/halls in Khayalitsha translate into a blanket ban such as this? If halls in Khayalitsha were used inappropriately, sort it out there. The City Council’s slogan is “This City works for you” – I can’t see it in this case!

GUNNAR SERRITSLEV Woodstock Ninnie Steyn, Director: Library and Information Services, City of Cape Town, responds: The author has been misinformed and I welcome the opportunity to provide clarity. The City of Cape Town’s Library and Information Services Department is responsible for the provision of library services, through its libraries. This includes making library halls available for library programmes as well as use by community organisations, businesses etc. Library halls may not be used for religious, political or social events. Requests that fall in the latter bracket are referred to the Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department, because civic halls can be booked for these purposes. Community organisations may use the library halls free of charge. For various reasons, few library halls are available after hours, for example, if the physical design does not lend itself to the hall being used independently of the main library; and no resources are available for control and lock-up after hours. A number of library halls have historically been used after hours. It is within this context that the Department has identified the need for a formal revision of hall usage practises, with a view to finalising a Hall Usage Policy that can be implemented uniformly. This process will take into consideration current practices and that appropriate consultation will take place. Until such a time as a formal policy has been approved, the status quo with respect to current library hall usage will apply.

A red card for not laughing THE hit one-man show Rooikaart will be staged at the Winners action bar, Golden Valley Casino for one night only on Saturday 3 December. Frank Opperman’s Rooikaart is about Wally Koekemoer, president of a rugby club somewhere in the sticks, presiding over the club’s annual prize-giving cere-

mony. But all is not well and attendance is poor. Not even the prizewinners turned up. With his favourite tipple as moral support, Wally soldiers on because the show must go on. As his drinking continues, Wally reveals the underbelly of the club. The skeletons in Wally Koeke-

moer’s own closet also begin to appear, one after the other. Wally reminds you of somebody you have met in real life, and some of his utterances ring all too true. Doors open at 20:00 and the show starts at 21:00. Tickets cost R50. For more information phone the Golden Valley Casino on (023) 348 7200 or go to their website at: www.suninternational.com.

GRANDWEST CSI presents a stellar line-up of reggae, pop and comic entertainment at the Grand Arena on Thursday 15 December, starting at 20:00. The show features Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels, the top three 2011 Idols winners Dave, Mark and Crushandra, and comedian Kurt Schoonraad. Legendary pop-afro-reggae roup Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels need little introduction. The five-man band previously shared the stage with musical luminaries such as Janet Jackson, Tina Turner, Paul Simon, Gloria Estefan and, closer to home, Yvonne

Chaka Chaka and Lucky Dube.They first gained widespread recognition with their rendition of the Eddie Grant classic Give me hope Jo’anna. While their music offering is largely reggae, they include popular mainstream cover versions of artists such as George Benson and Santana. The top three 2011 Idols contestants form part of the evening’s entertainment. Winner Dave van Vuuren, runner-up Mark Haze and third-placed Crushandra Forbes will perform together in Cape Town for the first time since the finals of the contest. During the course of the

evening the delightfully manic Kurt Schoonraad will entertain the audience with his earthy humour and nutty take on life.Schoonraad also plays the lead role in the newly released local film Skeem, which scooped the Audience Choice Award at the recent Abu Dhabi Film Festival. The film competed against legendary directors such as Martin Scorsese and George Clooney, and Kurt received critical acclaim for his portrayal of the main character Richie Rich. Tickets are available from Computicket for between R150 and R200.

CHRISTMAS CONCERT: A Christmas Concert, entitled Music for the Birth of the Word, will be presented by the Cape’s Early Music En­ semble, in collaboration with the South Afri­ can Early Music Trust. In this programme of early Italian and German Baroque music, an unusual genre of Christmas theatre music from Naples is contrasted with three different composers’ versions of the Magnificat and further combined with selected settings of the Mass Ordinary. The programme will in­ clude the first­ever South African performanc­ es of works by Neopolitan composers, promi­ nent in their time, Cristofaro Caresana and Gi­ acomo Carissimi. The concert will take place on Friday, 9 December, at 19:00 in St Andrews Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Buiten­ gracht and Somerset roads. For more informa­ tion contact Andrew on 082 494 1398 or Lente on 084 277 5070. Tickets are R60 and available at the door. Photo: Supplied

Tuesday 22 November 2011

World’s toughest yacht race visits Cape Town THE City of Cape Town looks forward to once again welcoming the participants of the Volvo Ocean Race to its shores. This is the world’s premier offshore race, an exceptional test of sailing prowess and human endeavour, which started over 37 years ago. This will be the fourth time that Cape Town will host the prestigious race, and gives the City another opportunity toward using the sea as an asset to promote the Mother City. “The Volvo Ocean Race holds enormous benefits for the city. When they last visited us in 2008, the direct economic impact was close on R308 million, through visitor and organiser spend. Add to that the destination media exposure secured worldwide valued at R77 million,” says Councillor Grant Pascoe, Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing. The total budget for the Cape Town stop over is R16.2 million, of which the City will contribute R1.5 million. This sponsorship will be used for investment promotion events, funding volunteers for the event, branding and other marketing costs. Councillor Pascoe said the event will do more than just promote Cape Town as a tourist destination. “It will also entail a youth sailing programme through the Izivunguvungu Sailing Development Programme for youth in disadvantaged areas, as well as a schools environmental programme focusing on preservation of the ocean.” The City believes that hosting an event like the Volvo Ocean Race is vital to protecting and expanding the city’s position as an international sailing hub. The City has based its decision to financially support the Cape Town stopover for the Volvo Ocean Race on its Events Policy adopted in 2008, which recognises the role that events play in promoting economic growth in a modern city. It also states that the hosting of events should “actively support Cape Town’s economic growth and maximize income generating opportunities, including building and supporting small businesses and creating opportunities for communities”, says Pascoe.

For the love of the game LYNN PRINS

THE saying goes “age is nothing but a number,” and this was proven by a softballer who has been playing for 43 years. Cheryl Raatz, a stalwart of St Andrews Dodgers Softball Club, started playing at the age of nine. She was introduced to the game by her late father Willie Dixon. Raatz started her softball career at Ridgeville Softball Club, based in Athlone, hardly played and was known as the “bat girl” because all she seemed to do was pick up and carry bats for her team mates. “Back then there were no junior teams and I had to be part of a senior team. The only way you could learn the game was to sit on the bench and watch,” she said. Raatz was eager to start playing and moved to St Andrews Dodgers, established in 1948, and of which she is still a proud member. Asked how the game has changed over the years, she said: “The game is now more incentive- than commitmentdriven. Facilities have improved tremendously and therefore we should be grateful and accept change.” Raatz told People’s Post how excited she was about the Junior Women’s World Championship taking place in two weeks’ time.

BALLERS: From left to right are Megan Cable (pitcher for Westridge Yankees), Lisa Erasmus (outfield­ er for Glenthorn A’s), Lara Erasmus (short stop for Westridge Yankees), and Cheryl Raatz (catcher for St Andrews Dodgers). Photo: Sheana Abrahams “I never thought it would happen. Softball is, and has always been, regarded as a minnow sport. But now, with us hosting the event, maybe interest in the sport will grow.” People’s Post is the media sponsor for the JWWC on 7-17 December. Three players who were part of the JWWC team in Holland 2007, Lisa Erasmus, Lara Erasmus and Megan Cable, told Peo­ ple’s Post about the experience.

“Seeing softball on a whole new level gave me the urge to play like them,” said Lisa. Lara said: “I expected it to be tough and I knew we would have to play our hearts out in every game, but I never expected such a high level of softball and amazing talent.” Asked about the strengths of our national softball team, Cable said: “The players have an

advantage we never had, where training is concerned. They train together as a team, which is good. Also, the ladies are not afraid of swinging the bat. Having Lester Smith on their side is great, as he is an excellent batting coach.” They wished the team well, and added that while performing at their highest competitive level, they should also enjoy the experience and have fun.

ROW YOUR BOAT: The Peninsula Girls’ Rowing Club rows from a boat­ shed in Zeekoeivlei. The Club is open to all school girls. The club currently boasts a mem­ bership of nearly 30 girls who train and com­ pete in regattas.

Santos’ stubborn defence LYNN PRINS

A

TOUGH league clash between Engen Santos and Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday at the Peter Mokaba Stadium resulted in the teams sharing the spoils at full time. The match ended in a 0-0 draw. Santos, whose defence was outstanding, hit back during the second half, nearly sealing victory against the home team. Eleazar Rodgers nearly scored in the last ten minutes when a powerful header hit the crossbar. He had a tremendous game, and his aerial presence offered a solid defence for Chiefs. The People’s team could have won the game, but missed chances cost them a win. With that said, only confidence can be taken into Sunday’s Telkom Knockout Cup semi-final against Bidvest Wits University. The Lansdowne-based side, Santos, founded in 1982 in Heideveld, last won silverware in 2003 in the ABSA Cup against neighbours Ajax Cape Town at Athlone Stadium. The People’s Team, as they are known to their fans, has come a long way. This season Goolam Allie, CEO of the club, aims to win one cup with the side that he has. “There is no way that I would have players in our squad that I think are not good enough to win a cup.” When People’s Post asked Allie what it would mean to Santos if they reached the final and won the cup, he said: “It would be Déjà vu for us, be-

cause we are a club that always wins cups.” Ederies Burton, Chief Operating Officer for Santos, said: “It’s always a good feeling when the club reaches this stage of such an important knockout competition. With the current squad, I sense the same desire as with the squad that won the Cup in 2003. “In terms of advice to the younger players, it’s all about application on match day. The team that applies themselves properly on the day will ultimately be successful. It’s about who wants it more,” Burton added. On Sunday Santos will be playing against Bidvest Wits. They are known as The Clever Boys because of the club’s close affiliation with the University of the Witwatersrand. Their key player, and the man to watch, is former Santos player Ryan Chapman. Chapman, who scored six goals in eight starts, seems to be in top form. Wits coach Rodger De Sa, known as the Drawing King, has made his team into an attacking force this season. They have been playing more entertaining soccer this season, and their match on Sunday, is sure to be a tough one. The battle between the teams takes place on Sunday at 15:00 at the Bidvest Stadium.
