No reprieve for baboons TERESA FISCHER

ELECTRIC fencing may be introduced in more areas to deter baboons. Indications are the baboon monitoring programme will be subject to a new philosophy, which favours using electric fencing and more forceful measures to deter the primates. This will result in reduced labour costs for the City of Cape Town, which currently forks out R9 million a year to this end. In Zwaanswyk, residents have footed the bill for a R1 million fence installed in May. The fence – which has yet to be electrified – is 2m high and runs for 2.8km between Tokai Road and the northern slopes of Ou Kaapse Weg. Rob Tiffin of the Zwaanswyk Special Rating Area says it is erected on SANParks land. Felicity Purchase, of the City, has been reported as saying the City has threatened to take SANParks and Cape Nature to court to force them to assist financially with the baboon monitoring programme. To date, 69 baboon monitors face imminent retrenchment, with no answers about whether they will be absorbed into the new programme yet. The current Baboon Management Contract ends on Saturday 30 June, but the City assures residents the “basic functions” of the monitoring programme will be fulfilled through a “temporary arrangement”. NCC Environmental Services, who holds the contract for the baboon management, says it is not in a position to provide a short-term extension of its services. This was requested to allow the new service provider to develop and mobilise its operations. This comes as attempts are underway to trap and euthanise two “unmanageable” baboons – Force and Merlin (18) – from the Smitswinkel Bay troop. The public interacts through the Baboon Liaison Group (BLG), which has representation from all affected communities.

BLG chairperson Doug Tunbridge admits, however, that they found out about the decision through the grapevine. BLG has asked the Baboon Conservation Authorities (BCA) to review the decision. The BCA is made up of City, Cape Nature and SANParks representatives. Dr Elzette Jordan, of the City’s Environmental Resource Management Department, says BLG is not a management body, but acts as intermediaries between the communities and the authorities. The BCA is responsible for management decisions, says Jordaan , adding “full attention” was given to the BLG request. But the decision is final. The winning tender for the Baboon Management contract was submitted by Dr Phil Richardson of Human Wildlife Solutions. Richardson, a wildlife filmmaker, says he prefers not to comment until he has officially been appointed. The former Zwaanswyk resident was a guest speaker at a meeting about the fence in November. At the time his comment, recorded in the minutes, was that the only really economical long-term solution to the human and baboon conflict in Zwaanswyk was that of an electric fence. Professor Justin O’Riain of the Baboon Research Unit at UCT also supported the fence. His opinion on a website is both electric fencing and “more scary” monitors need to be explored. It is believed Richardson will be joined by Mark Duffel, who used to keep troops away from a Simon’s Town restaurant. He had a permit to carry a paintball gun. Former general manager of the same restaurant, Jeff Johns, says the electric fence installed about four months ago did stop raids by the entire troop, but failed to deter a few of the big males. Johns says: “If there were no monitors there will definitely be problems.” Anyone wishing to employ monitors can call (021) 702 2884.

NO REPRIEVE: Merlin (18) is one of the baboons authorities want euthanised. Those against the decision say he has very few teeth left. Jenni Trethowan of Baboon Matters has compiled mortality figures based on their own counts as official population counts are not available. She says 23 males have been killed, 13 under the protocol. In addition, 18 females and juveniles were killed, and nine infants. This amounts to 50 deaths. There have been 32 births. Photo: Supplied

Merlin is a ‘surprise operator’ JEFF JOHNS, of the Black Marlin Restaurant, says although Merlin “looks big and scary”, he is “harmless” because he has no large canines. This sentiment was echoed by another source, who asked not to be named. She says she has “never seen old boy Merlin be aggressive”. Johns says Force and Merlin

have “become more bold”, growling and sometimes conducting mock charges. He describes both Force and Merlin as “incredibly clever”. Merlin is a “surprise operator”, who learnt how to turn door handles to open doors, resulting in the handles being changed. “One day in the middle of

lunch there was a knock at the fire door,” says Johns. “I thought it was a delivery, opened the door and in walks Merlin,” he laughs. “Merlin learnt by watching suppliers knock.” Johns says the animals are just after food and says he gets frustrated with people who are uninformed.

The lowdown on flying Dear reader,

no hair 220211 1AIZ0Q

Unlike most people, I am not a fan of flying and have successfully navigated my way out of air travel, both on the business and personal fronts. During my lengthy career, I’ve only risen to my challenge of flying once; a work trip to Jozi more than 10 years ago. I’ve never been as nervous. Last week I encountered flight again and the trip to Johannesburg was a dream; smooth, ending in a fairly bumpy landing. The sedative I’d taken beforehand helped me survive. The return journey was punctuated with turbulence most of the way. Some passengers had their hands in their heads. Praying? Airsick? I made no secret of my fears and despite being ensconced in the middle seat, frantically leafed through my trusted prayer book for all of the two-hour trip. Dinner and drinks did nothing to assuage my rising panic and I couldn’t wait for the flight attendants to remove the bothersome little meal that made me feel even more caved in. How can one eat while thousands of

conditions throughout the country, please spare a thought for those less privileged. Support blanket drives and any initiatives to bring relief to the poor who often go to bed hungry; and the homeless who are exposed to the elements night after night. Every good deed counts, as Aunty Gertie Hartog who called me yesterday can vouch for. This wonderful lady, from Parkwood, is a mother to five and grandmother to 10, who still works part time to help support her family. She called our offices yesterday to express her praise for all those who give selflessly to others in need, while actively campaigning to find work for her unemployed daughter. I love her initiative. And the cherry on the cake is that Aunty Gertie’s schedule clashes with mine, so while I am on deadlines Mondays, this is her only day to chat to me as it’s the only day she has access to a telephone. Whether I like it or not, and regardless of my production demands, I’ll have to reshuffle my Monday to accommodate Aunty Gertie’s schedule. Any time, Ma’am. Till next time, go well!

miles up in the air? Easily, if the gusto with which some passengers tucked in is anything to go by. Airports are fascinating places, a smorgasbord of worlds and cultures converging for a fleeting moment and dispersing as swiftly. There’s the seasoned executive traveller, the well-heeled, the evidently business class types, the adventurers, the frequent flyers, the smart packers, those prepared for every eventuality... And if luggage is anything to go by; it pays to invest in quality suitcases. The best part about travel is meeting and engaging with new people, exchanging business cards and promising to connect across the continent. My fear of flying is somewhat of a contradiction, as I’ve had two exciting helicopter flips and am fearless when it comes to rollercoasters and other extreme carnival rides. Perhaps this reminder will serve me well during my next trip, on Thursday; along with a healthy supply of calming pills.

Boulders Beach scores high

AïDA PROSPUR

SOUTHERN SUBURBS Everything we touch turns to SOLD

BOULDERS Beach is one of the top 10 truly unique beaches in the world. That’s according to international website TripAdvisor, Cape Town Tourism reports. “It’s the only place in the world where you can make the acquaintance of an African penguin,” says Monique Ruthenberg, Table Mountain National Park section ranger. The secluded beach – which came eighth – conserves about 3 000 endangered African penguins. She describes this as “fantastic recognition”, adding: “It is feather in the cap of Simon’s Town and the peninsula.” Ruthenberg adds the granite rocks at Boulders are also a few million years old and are igneous rocks, unlike most of Table Mountain, which consists of sandstone. Maho Beach, in St Maarten, in the Caribbean tops the list. At this beach you can watch aeroplanes take off and land. Second is California’s Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, which features a beach made of polished glass pebbles. The purple sand puts Pfeiffer Big State Beach in Big Sur, also in California, in third place. In fourth place is Palawan Beach, Singapore, which is a man-made artificial beach.

Where there’s smoke ... there’s dagga UNUSUAL smelling smoke coming from a property in Glencairn Heights led to a dagga bust – with an estimated street value of R200 000 – last week. Simon’s Town police followed up on information and knocked on the door. They spoke to a man who told them he was a Rastafarian and the dagga inside was for his own use. The police searched the house and found 83 dagga plants, a quarter bag filled with dagga leaves and three five-litre bottles stuffed with dagga. The man, his wife and daughter (19) were arrested. They all appeared in the Simon’s Town Magistrate’s Court on charges of possession of drugs. The man was released on R2 000 bail. The wife and daughter paid R500 bail. They will re-appear in August.

Church feeds hungry souls TERESA FISCHER

AN EMPTY margarine tub, a mug or a pink lunch box. Clutching these containers, children of different ages, arrive at the soup kitchen, their dogs trotting along next to them. The soup kitchen is held by members of the Maranatha Revival Community Church at the Ocean View Civic Centre twice a week. The church recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. The church priest, Reverend John Karstens, is also the chairperson of a group of Ocean View churches known as the Body of Christ. His is a remarkable story. Karstens’ wife Kathleen was a drug dealer. He was also a dealer and an addict. He has been clean for 23 years and recalls how, sitting in his yard with a cup of tea. “I was smoking my ganja, when the spirit of the Lord spoke to me. Blind with my sin, I didn’t recognise the voice straight away, but it played like a recording in my mind.” Soon after he asked a church to pray for him and this is when he “finished with [his] bad life”. “It wasn’t easy,” he says, but adds: “God promises if you follow him, he will make a way for you”. Ten years ago he felt compelled to do a two-week fast,

without contact with people. He says it was during this fast that he discovered the purpose – to start a new church. Soon the ministry grew, surrounded by his family – including his wife, their sons Ashley Karstens and Donovan Fritz, son-in-law Paul Brink, and daughters Michelle Orris, Sharon Brink and Theresa Fritz. Karstens says the church has seen many wonders, including families being reunited and the sick being healed – even within their ranks. In 2008 Karstens became so ill with cancer it seemed he would die. “I thought it was the last of me.” He thanks Western Cape premier Helen Zille and former ward councillor Nikki Holderness – whom he knows personally – for their prayers. He says the struggle was worth it and the church works hard in the community, reaching out to those in need. HIV/Aids workshops, adult education programmes and social work are some of the projects the church is involved in. They extend special thanks to Imhoff Farm for helping with the adult education programme and Woolworths at Longbeach Mall for providing food for the soup kitchen. Phone the church on (021) 783 1072 or 078 196 7034.

Shields ‘won’t always deter’ sharks SHARK shields – electric deterrents worn by divers and surfers – dot no always repel sharks.

Kock says in 2010 and 2011 they collaborated in the first scientific study to test their effectiveness. The lead organisation involved the South Australian Research and Development Institute (Sardi). The study, prepared by Sardi and Flinders University shark ecologist Dr Charlie Huveneers for Safework SA, tested the behaviours of Great White sharks when exposed to the Shark Shield Freedom7. Huveneers says: “The aim of the project was to improve our understanding of how these devices affect the behaviour of Great White sharks.” The effects of the electric deterrent were tested in two different situations and loca-

A study of shark behaviour has given scientists a greater insight into how these predators respond to shark shields. The two-year study found, while the shields have an impact on Great White sharks, they did not deter or repel them in all situations. A seal decoy was used in the study so the studies cannot be applied directly to human and shark interactions. Shark Spotters research manager Alison Kock says she is often asked about the effectiveness of shark shields in repelling Great Whites.

Quality is our

tions – on a dynamic seal decoy at Seal Island off South Africa and on a static tuna bait at the Neptune Islands off South Australia. The trials showed no evidence that the deterrent attracted Great White sharks, said Huveneers. “Furthermore, results demonstrated that the deterrent had an effect on the behaviour or Great White sharks, but did not deter or repel them in all situations.” They made two interesting results and somewhat contrasting observations. In South Africa, Huveneers found when the shark shields were turned on, the number of breaches on the seal decoy decreased. But in South Australia the shield did not impact the consumption of tuna bait. “The deterrent did not reduce the propor-

tion of tuna bait consumed, while Great White sharks were observed within 0.5m of the deterrent when it was activated.” Future research should focus on mapping the field emitted by the electric deterrent, testing the effect of deterrents less than 2m from the bait and on other potentially dangerous sharks, such as tiger sharks and bull sharks, said Huveneers. “We have improved our understanding of how Great White sharks react to electric deterrents, but it is still unknown whether other species would react similarly or how sharks might be affected by electric deterrents in other situations,” he said.

Schools out? THE Western Cape Education Department has put 27 schools on notice of imminent closure. The reasons for the threat of closure are poor academic performance, a dwindling pupil numbers and a high drop-out rate. Some of the schools have received notification that they have to improve their pass rate. Failing this, a decision will be made in September to close the schools by the end of this year. Principals at some of the schools have said the failure rate is as a result of pupils being taught in second and third languages. Many of the pupils speak isiXhosa, while their language of instruction is English. One way to address this problem, and to halt schools closing, is for the education department to introduce isiXhosa as a language of instruction to schools with a predominant Xhosa pupil base.This suggestion, say principals, has fallen on deaf ears. Education is key to establishing South Africa’s success as a global player in all spheres, including the financial and academic sectors. Questions remain over whether outcomebased education does have merit. How will closing schools benefit pupils who may already be hamstrung by receiving their instruction in a second language? The department’s refusal to officially release the names of these schools was so as not to pre-empt the outcome of any decision. Parents of children at the 27 schools have a right to question where to from here. Should these schools close, alternative arrangements have to be made for pupils using public transport. A country that is seeing many of our quality teachers outsourcing their skills to foreign countries may see a greater siphoning of this resource. Meanwhile, the 4 000 pupils and about 150 teachers who will be affected by school closures will have to be absorbed elsewhere.

Call for help

Don’t wait for notice to renew ON TUESDAY 20 March I applied at the Fish Hoek Driving Licence Centre for a renewal of my driving licence, which was about to expire. This is certainly a very convenient facility, and is appreciated by those who live in this part of the peninsula – previously we had to travel to Ottery. The renewal process was efficiently handled. I was told the renewal process takes about eight weeks, and that I would be notified, by post, when my new licence was ready. I noted the date eight weeks hence, but by Monday 11 June – 11 weeks since I’d done the renewal – I decided to call at the centre to enquire about my licence. There it was, and it was handed over to me!

When I grumbled about not having been notified, I was told: “It takes a while for the notification to reach you.” “Nonsense,” I responded, “it takes two to three days for a letter to travel from Fish Hoek to Noordhoek.” “Oh, no,” was the reply, “the notification comes from Pretoria.” I guess they use a runner with a forked stick in Gauteng. So, be aware, don’t wait for a notification. Check at the licence centre after eight weeks. Twelve weeks on I still haven’t received a notification. DENOON SIEG Noordhoek

Take a bite out of empty advert STEERS advertised the special with the promise of enough stock for all. We, as a company, tried to order about 50 burgers from Steers, only to be told there would be no telephonic or Mr Delivery orders. When we phoned Mr Delivery we were told they don’t deliver special offers. Then we tried to phone the nearest branch, but the line was busy. When trying to phone other branches, we had the same problem. My colleague phoned the Steers Customer Care line (0860 22 55 87), but they couldn’t assist her as they also couldn’t contact the branches. We decided to go to Tokai Steers (just after 11:00), but when we got there, a sign was placed

to advise no more orders are being taken for the special. Eventually we got hold of Steers at Caltex Bonjour in Mitchell’s Plain and were advised that they will be receiving stock after 13:00. Our company is based in Muizenburg and to go all the way to Tokai for the special offer then being told no stock is available is really very bad service. Even Mitchell’s Plain is a distance to drive with no guarantee of getting the order. This is highly disturbing as the majority of my colleagues didn’t pack lunch as they expected to have the Steers burger special. Steers should not advertise if they cannot provide.

I AM writing this letter to People’s Post hoping someone will assist. On Tuesday 12 June I picked up a gentleman, aged 61, on Woolsack Drive on the M3 near UCT. He was walking to Silvermine Retirement Village in Noordhoek. He had walked from Lavender Hill to the Department of Labour in Cape Town in search of a job. He said the next day he was going to hitchhike to Wellington in search of employment. He was retrenched from Hertz Car Rental. He needs a job to put food on the table as his family had had their last meal on Sunday. He made an impression on me by walking in search of employment. I’m sure as a father he wants to provide for his family. The job in Wellington did not materialise. I know his address as I delivered the meal to his house. Please assist in placing an ad and hopefully his dignity will be restored. Call 072 551 1080 or (021) 460 9661. MARY PERCENT Lakeside Letter edited – Ed

Unpleasant WE’VE had stinky water every summer time – year in and year out with this year being the worst. We live in Sun Valley and it seems nobody cares or listens to our pleas to rid us of this foul-smelling water. So I’m glad that Simon’s Town joined the club. I hop this will strengthen our plight!

Linger at the market TERESA FISCHER

IN CASE you missed it, the new Food Lover’s Market opens at Longbeach Mall early July. In a continuing series where we introduce the department managers, wasabi, donkeys and Richard Branson become part of the conversation. Coffee shop manager, John Joubert, admits he can talk the hind leg off a donkey. It’s lucky this reporter is not a donkey. Either his talkative nature or perhaps good food, service and the right ambience at the Food Lover’s coffee shop will be why people arrive for a quick bite and leave three hours later. Joubert says if a customer comes in upset and he can provide them with great food and service, they leave feeling better. Having worked his way up from being a waiter, he understands what makes for excellent service. Passionate about food, Joubert loves to cook at home. “Any food is comfort food,” he says. Joubert has worked overseas and with well-known chefs, like the Foodbarn’s Franck Dangereux. The new Food Lover’s will have a signature menu, which caters for vegetarians and other health-conscious people. So if you have time for a quick bite... In the grocery aisles you will find Denise Kallis who has 30 years retail experience. She says, because of this, customer care is her strong point. Honesty and integrity are crucial, she adds. She will never lie to get a sale. Even if Richard Branson walked into the shop, she says she would not just try and sell him the most expensive product. Instead she will recommend what she believes the most appropriate purchase would be, depending on his needs. She loves to know what makes her customers tick, and has been known to surreptitiously follow them and watch how they shop. Many people know her from Slivers (Biltong and Nuts) in Kommetjie Road, where she worked before. Sushi chef Bo Zhang (29) is not easily flus-

SERVICE EXCELLENCE: Denise Kallis near the striking olive oil dispensers. Photos: Teresa Fischer tered. At the Tokai Food Lover’s Market – where he is training until the new Food Lover’s opens – he confides he forgot a customer’s order so he had to make a large platter of sushi immediately. With a few sure slices with a painfully sharp blade and some deft wrist manoeuvres the platter is ready. From China, Zhang has been in South Africa for five years. He learnt to make sushi at the V&A Waterfront, where he previously worked. He has an easy laugh, more of a giggle. He giggles when asked if he has ever encouraged those unfamiliar with sushi to eat large dollops of fiery wasabi. (The answer is no.) At home he prefers to eat Chinese food. (Sushi is Japanese). A trained chef in his home country, he chooses that instead. Zhang is patiently training three Xhosaspeaking employees to make sushi.This is in line with the Sun Valley Food Lover’s philosophy which aims to uplift people.

INVITING AMBIENCE: John Joubert loves to chat.

Smart tools to help you plan for your child’s education BIG SPLASH: Varkevisser also sent in this vivid photograph of a wave crashing on the rocks at The Bay from Jager’s Walk.

There is no doubt about it, education is not what it used to be when we were at school. The greatest change in the last 20 years however, is the cost. And with education inflation running at much higher than general inflation, the cost of education is increasing faster than most people’s income. But with a little planning, some knowledge and a bit of time, you could afford to give your child the best education. At Old Mutual we know that the financial decisions you make today will make all the difference to your child’s future. To help you with this crucial planning process we’ve created the SmartMAX website that is filled with useful information, clever financial tools as well handy tools and advice for everything from birthdays to baby showers.

What you can find at www.oldmutual.co.za/smartmax The education guide Useful advice including the cost of education, choosing a school, baby milestones, nutrition, a parents’ guide and interesting articles on various topics. Cost of education calculator A comprehensive calculator that can tell you how much your child’s education is likely to cost and how you are doing with your existing savings. Budget tool An easy to use budgeting tool to help you calculate your monthly expenses and how much you could invest for education. Baby shower and birthday planners Handy tools help you create and send out beautiful invitations. The tools will offer suggestions for gifts and manage your invite list for you.

Your SMSes . The thoughts behind the helium balloons sent skywards in memory of Sarah are pure and wonderful. However, one cannot help but wonder at the potential damage they can cause when they burst at height and fall back to earth – and possibly into the sea. Seagulls and fish mistake the bits as tasty bits only to discover – too late – that they are not. The consequences are fatal. The memory of the lovely young lady should not be the cause of any pain and suffering by innocent animals. My thoughts go out to her family and friends. Richard, Scarborough . Just read “Balloons, love for sweet Sarah”. Thank you for sharing the amazing life experience of knowing Sarah Anne Ralph. It was heartwarming and inspirational; touching our lives through her – albeit short – life. May our Lord comfort her loved ones. From a mother who will heed her mother, Simone’s, encouraging words. God bless. . Sarah was in my class in Grade 6. She was one of those people who always had a smile and made your day. . With regards to the new Kommetjie developments: what happened to a property owner’s “inalienable right” to develop their property as they see fit? It seems sometimes you have that right, sometimes you don’t. Double standards? I don’t get it. Kommetjie lover . Regarding the resurfacing the Glencairn expressway: it looks and feel worse than before. Why not fix the road leading to Simon’s Town, which is in a far worse state? Marianne Nel, Sunnydale . Thank you for the two speed bumps in Corsair Road, Sun Valley. Please tell us when we could expect the other four bumps that

– more deaths. At ward or local level there is something that can be done. Stop procrastinating and get something done, councillor Purchase. You need to act, not talk. Or are you waiting for an accident closer to home before you react? . It seems some people have a personal vendetta against False Bay Hospital. Maybe those people should go to a private hospital, and see how much they would pay there. Some people are really ungrateful for the service the staff at False Bay Hospital provides. Anonymous . Shame on you Pick n Pay Longbeach Mall. I asked a Muslim manager to separate our cold meats from unhalaal meats. I feel the divider is insufficient. I was brushed off and promised it would be done. Ten days later it is still unchanged. In fact, I had to stop someone from buying the wrong meats. Are we as Muslims too few to make a difference or do we not spend enough? Would you like us to take our business elsewhere? Sageda de

Klerk, Ocean View Jarett van Vuuren Regional Manager Pick n Pay Western Cape responds: Pick n Pay has taken note of Mrs De Klerk’s concerns. We are committed to catering for our customer’s religious dietary requirements and will be addressing the issue. . I bought a track pants for my daughter at Pep Stores in Fish Hoek, but it was too small. When I returned it, the manager said I could not because I didn’t have a slip. She was very rude and never smiled with the customers. She is also rude to her staff – she doesn’t speak in a nice manner. The former manager was so much better. Why don’t they replace her? We don’t need rude people in Fish Hoek. The manager responds: Pep’s motto is to treat everyone with dignity and respect. If I recall the correct incident, an offer to exchange the tracksuit was made, but I never heard back from the customer. If I was rude I wouldn’t have any customers.

desperately need to encourage drivers to stop at the stop streets, so that our children can cross the road, and to cease the racing along the road 24 hours a day! . A traffic circle at the Ou Kaapse Weg and Silvermine Road intersection would slow down traffic, allow easy access and prevent accidents. Doing something about that intersection is a matter of urgency. Eva . I reply to Pathetic: to stop and drop off your child at the station right at the pedestrian crossing is not only selfish but dangerous. Not to mention illegal. Just drive about 20 yards forward where you can stop safely and obstruct no-one. Deon . Horrors! A great big “no” to Carlini’s suggestion of speed humps on Kommetjie Road. Let’s have some sanity here. This is a major feeder route used by thousands of motorists each day, not to mention emergency police, fire and ambulance vehicles. Go look at Ballito Bay on the Natal north coast – no robots on their main routes, only large traffic circles which are safe and slow the traffic. That is the solution on Ou Kaapse Weg, too. Don Knobel . Thanks for always providing a great newspaper. How many more fatal accidents on Ou Kaapse Weg before provincial government wakes up? It’s always the good, kind EMT and CMR emergency services who have to pick up the pieces. The proposal to cut back the koppie was only submitted to provincial government on Friday! There should be no right turn at Silvermine Road. Motorists should go via Noordhoek. Ou Kaapse Weg is over 40 years old and is dark and dangerous at night. Sandy, Scarborough . False promises and more deaths. In the hands of the national Department of Justice

Calling all bookworms IF YOU love books, visit the annual SPCA book sale at Canal Walk from Friday 29 June to Sunday 1 July between 09:00 and 18:00. A wide variety of quality second-hand books will be on sale at bargain prices. Natasha Johannes, SPCA fundraising officer, and a team of volunteers have been sorting through hundreds of donated books for several months. “We’ve picked out the best for shoppers to browse through,” she says. With hundreds of great books on offer in categories ranging from children and teens to classics, biographies and autobiographies, self-help, African and many more, there will be something to suit every reader’s taste. Last year’s book sale raised R17 000

to help the many animals the SPCA rescues and cares for, and this year they hope to do even better. “So if you love snuggling up with a good book, don’t miss this fantastic three-day book sale and help the SPCA prevent animal cruelty and neglect,” says Johannes. Contact Johannes 0 (021) 700 4155 or 2 awareness@spca-ct.co.za.

FOR A GOOD CAUSE: Volunteers who have been sorting through the donated books at the back, from left, are Tammy Carter and Sally Matthecka. In front, from left, is Alma Heselman, Sandra Smith, Natasha Johannes, and Joan Cameron. Photo: Supplied

Wacky wigs steal show THE Fish Hoek Methodist Church’s Weird & Wacky dance on Friday 8 June was once again a resounding success. The congregation and people in the Fish Hoek Valley obviously love to have fun, and this year proved no exception. It was ex-

tremely difficult to see “who” was behind the weird, wacky and imaginative creations. The night sizzled with excitement and entertainment – with prizes galore, and the “wackiest” lady, “wackiest” gentleman and “wackiest” couple chosen.

Promenade off limits THE Promenade – from Woolies Pool to Clovelly – has been closed to vehicles since Tuesday. The promenade has been found to be structurally unsafe for vehicles. Barriers were erected along the length to pre-

vent parking. These barriers will be in place until the commencement of Phase 3 of the Main Road upgrade. This is anticipated to start in March 2013 at which time the promenade structure will be rebuilt.

Far South wins gold in Durban A LARGE group of Far South longboard surfers and stand up paddleboarders (SUP) participated in the 10th annual Durban Surf Carnival recently and brought home many of the trophies on offer. Kommetjie’s Gary van Rooyen was the star performer, clinching both the longboard and the SA SUP titles in the legends (over 50) division. Noordhoek’s Justin Bing nearly matched that by winning the Open SA SUP crown and finishing second in the open longboards. Bing, who won the SA Open longboard title at Victoria Bay earlier this year, etched his name in the record books by becoming the surfer to hold the national open titles in both the SUP and longboard disciplines. Others to feature in Durban included big wave charger and SUP pioneer Chris Bertish, who was runner-up to Bing in the open SUP division, and Chelsea van Rooyen, who placed fourth in the SUP ladies category. Meanwhile the country’s top shortboard surfers are gearing up for the mid-year international events scheduled in Ballito and Jeffreys Bay in the first two weeks of July.

A quartet of Kommetjie surfers will compete in the Mr Price Pro Ballito from 2-8 July Brendon Gibbens was awarded a wildcard in the elite 96-man field – courtesy of his ranking in the ASP World Tour ratings. Matt Bromley, Mikey February and Davey Brand are all included in the eight-man trials for the prime-rated event and will compete for the last two places in the main event draw. Gibbens, Bromley and Brand have all been included in the 144-man field for the 6-star rated Billabong Pro J-Bay, which runs from 10-16 July. February is in pole position for one of the six wildcards into the event that will see SA surfers taking on a host of the worlds’ best in the legendary waves at Supertubes. Youngsters Jarred Veldhuis and Benji Brand are on the alternates list for the J-Bay event and will be hoping that some of the more than 100 international surfers who have entered withdraw prior to the start so they can take their places in the draw. The winter Solstice was celebrated last week and the days will now start getting longer although we expect the year’s biggest waves during the next three months. Despite a handful of huge sessions surfed during the Rebel Sessions last year, no South African waves or surfers were nominated for the annual Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards. The intrepid local big wave warriors have had a couple of warm-up sessions in waves of consequence already this year. They will be hoping that the “wave-factory” known as the Roaring Forties – the 4 000km stretch of South Atlantic ocean from Tierra del Fuego on the tip of South America to the Cape Peninsula that lies between 40 and 50 degrees South – produces many days of mammoth waves in the days and weeks ahead.
