An open letter to our mayor clarifies the Tourism Advisory Committee and Conservation Bodies’ stance on proposed Jetski races in Plett Dear Memory, There are already a large number of emails circulating, including from MEC Winde and Grant about the concern of the Jet Ski races to be held in Plett. I’m sure you are aware of the controversy regarding these jet Ski races. There are a few key issues that I wish to bring to your attention: 1. The Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC) was approached a few months ago by Mr McQuillan to support the Jet Ski race. After careful deliberation it was unanimously decided that this type of event did not fit in with the new Tourism Brand Strategy plan designed for Plett, and informed Mr McQuillan accordingly. A minimum of 45 Jet Skis participating in 18 races with practicing days before the event over the holiday season would directly conflict with other core passive beach activities off central beach, including most importantly the presence of whales and their calves in the bay. The TAC is however in full support of the Wedge Classic which has been running for many years and is predominantly a body boarding competition with no power boats or PWC’s (Jet skis). The Wedge Classic features as one of the anchor events for Plettenberg Bay in the New Tourism Strategy, and the TAC believes that this event has the potential to grow tremendously so long as it remains an event that continues to promote sports that participate in natural conditions such as body boarding, surfing, skim boarding, sailing, surfski racing, swimming and other such sports. 2. Furthermore, Mr McQuillan has made his intentions quite clear that his wish is to promote Plettenberg Bay as a destination for Power Boat racing and adventure/adrenalin motorised sports. This intention can be viewed on his website where Plettenberg Bay is already featured on his annual calendar of events for power boat racing. The attitude of people like Mr McQuillan of making their own decisions with a disregard for the future of Plett, I feel, should not be tolerated. The TAC is not in support of the intention that Plett becomes a destination for power

boat racing, as it directly conflicts with the Vision and Brand Strategy for Plett. 3. I was advised by Mr McQuillan that he had athmeeting with you last Thursday 30 June, and obtained the approval for the event to take place. It seems that you have been mislead and been advised that the TAC was trying to stop the entire Wedge Classic event which is absolutely not true. It was not mentioned that the only part of the event that was not approved by the TAC was the Jet Ski racing, all of which has been minuted and available for viewing should you require. The next day on Friday 1st July, together with the TAC we met with Councillor Dreyer and Ralph Links where the details of your previous discussion were revealed, and again the TAC reiterated that they are in full support of the Wedge Classic but do not support Jet Ski racing. 4. Members of the TAC are concerned that the Jet Ski racing event is going ahead even though there are these serious points to consider: i. a decision that was made by the Mayor and Head of Strategic services (Ralph Links) based on untruths and misguided information. ii. this is the initiation of the new Tourism Strategy plan and Jet Ski racing is the wrong message to be putting out to the public. Iii. It is the start of the Whale watching season and the Jet Skis in the Bay will be in direct conflict with the animals, and may threaten the entire whale watching season. Today, 6th July, at the river mouth we witnessed the first Southern Right calf being born for the season. This mother and calf will stay in the Bay for the next 4 months if they are undisturbed. iv. Both Dr Cockcroft from the Centre for Dolphin studies and Henk Niewoudt from Cape Nature do not approve of the Jet Ski racing event. v. There is a Code of Conduct that was compiled by the Municipality in 2004 with reference to the use of Central Beach. It states specifically that no PWC is to be launched while whales are in the Bay (1st July- 31st Oct.) (Point 5.11 Codes of Conduct— Boat Launching Site, Central Beach, Plettenberg Bay) vi There is growing public concern about more Jet Skis being introduced onto our beaches and within the Bay. On behalf of the TAC I urgently request that you re-consider the decision to stage Jet Ski racing in Plettenberg Bay, as it will seriously impact negatively on the New Tourism strategy for the future.

Website: ROEPMAN - Drama This South African movie is set in a ''poor white'' community in Durban in the 1960s. We follow events through the eyes of an eleven year old boy, whose family is trapped within the structural violence caused by the government and the church at the time. He makes friends with an unlikely hero, who often appears to save him and these acts of kindness are considered to be miracles by the little boy. It is a coming-of-age tale & the associated loss of innocence. It is a story with unforgettable characters and it combines the magical world of childhood beautifully with the realistic world we live in. In Afrikaans Cast:. Paul Loots, John Henry Opperman, Deon Lotz, Rika Sennett, Beate Olwagen, Desire Gardner, Eddie de Jager, Andrew Thompson

NOTICE BITOU MUNICIPALITY JET SKI COMPETITION. In light of the numerous letters from the public received by the Municipality to cancel the Jet Ski competition planned for 16th July, we wish to make the following statement. It is the intention of the Bitou Municipality to promote Tourism and Economic prosperity through well-established events that feature regularly on the annual calendar and continue to grow year on year. These events however have to satisfy the strict criteria of showcasing but at the same time also preserving the magnificent natural assets of this region, including the Whales that frequent our Bay over winter. To this end in the last year, with the assistance of the Tourism Advisory Committee, the Municipality has compiled a New Tourism Strategic plan and Brand strategy for Plettenberg Bay. The new plan clearly defines a way forward for low impact, high value events that ‘tread lightly’ on our natural resources. At the time that this current Jet Ski competition was proposed, the new Tourism Strategy plan had not yet been endorsed by the Municipality. However the organiser, Wesley Mc Quillan, applied through the Tourism office to stage the Wedge Classic, a body boarding event that has been happening for the past 8 years, and was encouraged to proceed with an event to promote Tourism. The event has thoroughly been discussed between officials and Councillors of the municipality, Tourism office, NSRI, and other affected parties. The South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) has approved to hold this controlled event at Hobie beach, Plettenberg Bay on 16 July 2011.The course will be clearly demarcated and no participant will be permitted outside the designated area. At this point in time there are only 15 riders taking part in the event. The race will be closely monitored and strict regulations enforced. At the time a Jet Ski race did not seem significant and was included as an additional event to combine with the Body Boarding event. To ensure that the Jet Ski race does not have any negative impact on the visiting Whales and Dolphins on the day of the race, there will be permanent marshals positioned at strategic vantage points, including the Whales tail (Lookout view Point) and Central Beach control tower, to keep a lookout for animals in the area. If a Whale or Dolphin can be seen from any of these vantage points, the race will be cancelled. Also, no other jet skis other than those involved in the race will be permitted on the water during the entire day (16th July) of the race. This event has highlighted the need to review a strict code of conduct regarding Jet Ski activities within the Bay which will also be undertaken as soon as possible. Finally, it is the intention of the Municipality to use the New Tourism Strategic Plan to act as the guideline for future events and that the Tourism Board, representative of the different sectors of business and the community, will decide on key issues such as these to determine the best events for Plettenberg Bay. The Municipality recognises that the Marine Life within the Bay, including Whales and Dolphins, is a Tourism asset and a priority for Plettenberg Bay and will endeavour to regulate and control all activities that pose a potential threat to its continued existence.

Letter via the Editor Open Letter to the Organizers of the Jet Ski Race to be held on the 16th June The Plettenberg Bay Community Environmental Forum (PBCEF) strongly objects to Jet Ski racing taking place in Plettenberg Bay. One very obvious reason is that we are currently at the start of the whale breeding season and, additionally, it would appear that the legality of holding a Jet Ski race during this period has not been fully investigated or clarified. We fully support the Wedge Classic, but introducing a Jet Ski element to the race is in direct conflict to the new Plett Tourism Strategy, which has been compiled to ensure the long term success of Plett’s tourism with the interest of all in mind. Stakeholders, conservation groups and the community should be part of the decision making process, using the new Tourism Strategy document as the guideline and model. The Bitou Municipality compiled a Code of Conduct in September 2004 regarding Central beach in which it is stated that no PWC (Jet skis) is to be launched while whales are in the bay (1 July to 31 October). It is also stated in the Living Resources Act that no WHAT'S NEW IN PLETT –14 JULY 2011

unpermitted vessel may approach within 500 meters of a cetacean (whales and dolphins) without the necessary permits. This would be difficult to do in a Jet Ski race where the focus is on winning a competition and not on dodging whales or dolphins! Plett has retained most of its natural environment and boasts wonderful whale and dolphin sighting opportunities throughout the year. Because of this, Plett has been nominated as a finalist in the 'Leading Beach destination in Africa' category of the World Travel Awards. The Southern Right whales come to the bay to breed and calf from the 1st of July to mid October, mid October till December Humpback whales can be seen, and the remainder of the year Brydes whales frequents our shore. Bottle nose and Humpback dolphins are here throughout the year and they always range within the beach areas. Not even a week ago, the first Southern Right calf was born and it will remain here for 4 months if undisturbed. The use of jet ski’s in the bay during the whale season will cause stress to the marine animals, and may threaten the entire whale watching season, upon which most of Plettenberg Bay’s tourism is heavily reliant. Marine conservation specialists have identified Jet skis as disturbing and disruptive to whales and dolphins, due to the high pitched, high decibel sound

that interferes with the marine mammals’ ability to navigate and communicate under water. The increased variability of pitch and volume also makes the noise more apparent and offensive than other motorized crafts, not only to the animals but also to the people that come to Plettenberg Bay to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature that it offers. The fact that there will be at least more than 45 Jet skis participating in 18 competitions with additional practice days, used for hours at a time of machine-intensive and polluting play, will inevitably cause more harm than good to the environment and tourism of Plett’s future. We therefore urge you to keep the already popular Wedge Classic an un-motorized water competition so that it remains within the character of the Bay. Sincerely Obo Plettenberg Bay Community Environment Forum E-mail:

Jetski Races Good day all I would just like to shed some light on this matter -This is a 1 day race and only 1 day -There will be never more than 6 Jet Skis in the water racing at a time (which is less then we normally have on a normal holiday day) and 15 riders in total for the event. -The course has been set out with the Help of NSRI, and other Beach officials to insure minimal impact on any wildlife, the course is set out between the blinders rocks and the beach, not around the whole bay, which is a smaller area then the normal recreational jet ski area. -There is no legal documents in place stopping jet ski riding in the bay at anytime of the year, as conveyed by Beach Control. -There will be spotters on the roof of the Beacon Island from one of the Wildlife Organization checking for any wildlife moving into the race area, and if this happens the race will be stopped. -This race has been given the ok from the Municipality, Tourism, NSRI, Fire Rescue, Traffic, SAPS, Beach Control, GAA, SAMSA, SAJSBA and PSA If anyone would like the correct information please drop me an email.

Letter via the Editor POTHOLES Further to the letter in last weeks issue, we have found over the years that if we telephone the relevant department about potholes they send out a team to remedy the problem timeously. What I fail to understand though is the fact that the Municipality has a huge fleet of vehicles, most equipped with two way radios, covering virtually all of the roads in our town on a daily basis but none of the drivers will make a note of a pothole or even radio in where the potholes are. Obviously a case of “it’s not my job”. Surely these people should be told by their superiors to report potholes or any other problems they encounter in to the Municipality who employs them.

Southern Right Whale Calf

What a wonderful surprise to see that a southern right whale was born in the bay last week. At present we have 5 adults and one calf in the bay with numbers increasing daily. The whales are visiting our waters to mate and to calf and have travelled here from the sub-Antarctic. During their time here they generally do not eat, but have been seen feeding opportunistically. At birth they are approx 4 metres in length and can weigh up to a tonne. Their weight can increase as much at 20kg and length increase up to 3cm per day. They are fed on a high fat diet of milk, with the consistency of yoghurt. They can consume up to 400 litres of milk per day. A full grown adult can be 12-16 metres in length and an amazing 40 to 60 tonnes. WHAT'S NEW IN PLETT - 14 JULY 2011

Beach Control There is an email which has been circulated by the organizers of the Jetski Race claiming that Beach Control do not have any legal objections to Jetskis. According to a municipal document— Codes of Conduct—Boat Launching Site, Central Beach Plettenberg Bay… there are a number of principles and conditions for the various craft… including a list pertaining to Personal Water Craft (PWC) - Jetskis - one of which 5.11 is “No PWC may harass dolphins. No PWC is to be launched while whales are in the Bay(1 July to 31 October” What part of this document does the Plett Skiboat Club/NSRI/Beach Control not understand ? Were the members of the skiboat club and/or NSRI consulted on their views or were they just roped in at the last minute to keep people safe? Perhaps the problem is not only an uncaring council, but also a lack of communication, or perhaps understanding, or do rules just change as the mood of the official in charge changes! If we all adhered to the decisions taken, the jetski race would never have been considered to be permitted during the Whale Season at all. Marc Le Grume

Bokkie is not just about young children and he realizes that the youth can learn a lot from older citizens. It was a wonderful moment when Bokkie was pictured with Mrs. Betty Harris, the wife of Tony Harris, , who played flyhalf next to the legendary Danie Craven against, New Zealand, Australia and the British Lions in the 1930’s. The retired folk that came to meet Bokkie were informed about what SARU were doing to promote support for the Springboks and all about BOKday Fridays.

An excited Mrs. Harris related a few stories about her husband and how they had to travel for weeks by ship to get to New Zealand and Australia. With a chuckle Mrs. Harris told those present that she was only able to watch 1 ½ games that he husband played due to the travel issue. When asked why ½ a game she smiled and said that was because her husband was carried off on a stretcher that game.

Maths in the Spotlight

August marks two important events for learners and teachers from both primary and high schools, National Mathematics Week and the Jet South African Mathematics Challenge, organised by the South African Mathematics Foundation (SAMF) and the Association for Mathematics Education of Southern Africa (AMESA). 1-5 August is National Mathematics week and a variety of activities will be hosted in five provinces across the nation: Rhodes University, Grahamstown (Eastern Cape), Wynberg Boys’ High School, Cape Town (Western Cape), Teachers Centre, Kimberley (Northern Cape), University of Limpopo (Polokwane) and the Sol Plaatjie High School, Mafikeng (North West). “The main purpose of the Mathematics Week is to highlight the beauty, utility and applicability of mathematics and also to dispel the myth that this subject is difficult, cold, abstract, and only accessible to a few,” says Prof Johann Engelbrecht, Executive Director of the SAMF. Activities during Mathematics Week focus attention on Mathematics and Mathematics Education with the aim of making Mathematics more interesting, attractive, relevant, challenging, rewarding and engaging to learners and the community at large. “The activities highlight the impact of Mathematics on our daily lives and stresses the importance of

Mathematics as a foundation for careers in science, technology and managerial jobs,” says Elspeth Mmatladi Khembo, Chairperson of the SAMF and National President of AMESA. Some of the activities that will take place are: games, competitions, quizzes, puzzles, calculator contests, teacher development workshops and career guidance. During the same week, primary school learners can take part in the annual JET South African Mathematics Challenge. It is open to all learners from Grade 4 to 7. The Challenge consists of two rounds and participants can take part as individuals or in pairs. Learners who advance to the Final Round are awarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates. Recipients of Gold certificates will also receive a R200 CNA voucher. If you would like to participate in this Challenge, please ask your teacher or call the South African Mathematics Foundation on 012-392-9372.

Letter via the Editor Why must Plett always mess up a good thing. Everybody loves the Bodyboarding Competition – The Wedge. Despite many years of struggling it has grown to become the best bodyboarding Comp in the country. Most Bodyboarders are not Jetski fans, so how could it happen that someone could tag on a jetski racing event which is now overshadowing the Bodyboarding competition.

Life in Plett

On Wednesday morning last week I did a load of washing in my industrial washer – full cycle, and could not believe it when I took the washing out and with it came out with one of our Blue Bulls glasses that Luke Littlejohn gave us as a moving in present. Spotlessly clean and not even a TINY chip. My mind . . . .Luke does sandblasting on glass – is that the secret to long life for glasses? Chatterbox WHAT'S NEW IN PLETT - 14 JULY 2011

Open letter to our Mayor and Municipal Manager the matter of the jet ski's and whales Briefly, my strong opinion is that it would be prudent to try to reschedule the jet ski competition in our bay , as we all know it is unfortunately at the same time as the delicate matter of the whales giving birth. If you think about it, from an economic tourism point of view, the years of faithful whale watchers have, and will be in the future (if you can stop the jet ski competition for now) a far steadier stream of endless income, not to mention winning the goodwill card of the majority of Plett., and at the same time, looking inward to your deep natural knowledge of what is right and wrong. you probably know that it is the right thing to do to reschedule the jet ski race. I bet everyone in Plett would put a few rand in the hat to reimburse the organizer for his out of pocket expenses. so that he would be covered maybe? Irealize that there are huge issues at the council level to be dealt with, but this matters not to a birthing whale! So I advise you in the strongest possible way, for the general good will of the village, and the environmentally correct thing to do, please meet with the organization folks and try to deflate this awful situation as soon as possible as there is not much time left. if I can be of help call me on 076 066 0483. kind regards. myfanwy bekker "muffin" .

044 533 1139 / 082 572 1027 Letter via the Editor. Reply to Confused. I would like to respond to the reply to my previous letter and just ask whether “confused” has ever been unemployed with children to feed. We keep hearing that this Government must create jobs. A Government cannot create jobs unless they employ people to do no work. The only way that the Government can help create employment is to make a conducive climate whereby businesses will employ more labour by dropping the ridiculous labour laws and also bring in the two words that make a business successful. They are “You’re fired”. We see people on strike for more money when the majority of the population are unemployed. I am sure that there are many people who would take over the jobs of these “poorly paid” workers for half the salary that these workers are presently earning. Our Government, with its Cosatu and communist allies are not the solution to unemployment, they are the problem. Roger Davis. IT'S CASUAL DAY time again!

Inaugural Tour de Plett resounding success

After weeks of rain the sun shone brightly on the Tour de Plett.Saturday morning saw the village of Wittedrift a hive of activity with some 210 eager MTB cyclists lining up in a banner lined street, eager to take on the challenge of the three races on offer. The pros were there, the racing amateurs were there and so were the fun riders. The courses were challenging with rocky climbs, a perfect mix of jeep track, forest tracks, dirt and farm roads and single track through indigenous forests, plantations and farm lands and a traverse through Buffalo Hills Game reserve where zebra, giraffe and eland were seen. The racing in the 75km

main race was fast and furious with no quarter given. In the end Plett local sensation Kevin Evans 360 Life won a fiercely contested sprint finish from Adrien Niyonshuti MTN Qhubeka with Jacques Janse Van Rensburg MTN Qhubeka coming in third. The ladies race was dominated by the Bizhub ladies racing team with Candice Neethling crossing the line in first place followed by team mates Yolandi Du Toit second and Heidi Koen third. The majority of participants of the three races praised the course, the marking thereof and the organisation of the race. To quote a number of riders “The best MTB race I have ever ridden” Sunday morning the hive of activity was Marine Way Plettenberg Bay. The NG Kerk grounds were decked out with brightly coloured gazebos and advertising banners lined the streets. Again in excess of 200 riders took part in the various races from the main 110km event to the family orientated fun ride of 20 km. The MTN Qhubeka team made their intentions known from the start, local boy Kevin Evans was not going to repeat his win of the previous day and attack after attack were launched. Kevin himself attacked on the Groot Rivier pass but was caught just short of Kurland by a determined MTN Qhubeka Team who immediately launched a counter attack with six riders in the breakaway. This breakaway group rode unchallenged to the end with Loto Petrus across the line first followed by Bradley Potgieter in second

place and Jacques Janse van Rensburg in third. The Bizhub ladies did not have it all their way on Sunday. Anriette Schoeman of the Nashua Toyota team used the Groot Rivier pass to break away and win the race with Lindi Erasmus Bizhub in second place and Candice Neethling Bizhub rounding off a fine week in 3rd place. A closing word from the organising committee, “A superb event and we thank all involved particularly our sponsors, prize givers the land owners over whose property we rode. We would have liked more participants but given that it’s our first race we are more than satisfied.”

MOTORIST FINED FOR NOT PAYING TOLL FEES AT TSITSIKAMMA PLAZA On 2 September 2010 at 15h39 a motorist refused to pay the Toll Fees for his Class 1 Motor Vehicle at the Tsitsikamma Remote Ramp Toll Plaza. He made his way through the lane by forcibly lifting the Boom Arm, and in the process violating all traffic laws which included: - Violating a Red Traffic Light - Causing a run-through violation - Failure to pay for the use of the section of the toll road. The whole incident was captured by the continuous video recording system installed in all the lanes at Tsitsikamma Toll Plaza. The offender was reported to the Local South African Police and Case No 173/9/2010 was opened. The offender was later summoned to appear in Court where he was found guilty of the above offences and was ordered to pay a fine of R400-00 PRESS STATEMENT—1 July 2011

Statement by the Speaker: Bitou Local Council.

I have been forced to take the unprecedented step of barring a Councillor from entering the council chamber. In addition to that I have had to go to considerable expense to hire an outside security company to ensure the safety of councillors, officials and the public in this chamber. On the face of it is not a very democratic way of doing things and I did not take this step lightly. On Wednesday 29 June 2011, when this meeting of council commenced, Cllr Mvimbi, refused to comply with a lawful instruction of the speaker. There are many witnesses to his disruptive, abusive and threatening behaviour so far during this meeting, so I will not go into detail. He wilfully and deliberately disrupted this meeting for a period of nearly eight hours. In the process he prevented not only the Council but also the entire management team of this municipality from delivering the services they are paid to deliver. Despite my repeated requests to him to desist he remained obstinate and indeed as time wore on he brought his supporters into the chamber to cause further disruption. In the late afternoon at least one of his supporters was observed to


TEL: (044) 533-0010 WHAT'S NEW IN PLETT - 14 JULY 2011

be carrying a firearm in the chamber. A dangerous and totally unacceptable situation. No Speaker can allow this kind of situation to continue. It is of enormous concern to me that I did not get the support owed to me by our Municipal Manager and the municipality's so -called Law Enforcement Officers. These men who are sworn to enforce the by -laws of which Council's Rules of Order is an integral part, and who are paid enormous salaries, dismally and publicly failed, when called upon to do so. A few months ago the Municipal Manager took a very different stand and instructed the law enforcement officers to remove a councillor from this chamber. He and they did so without hesitation and without valid reasons. Not only was the councillor physically removed but he was actually placed under arrest in the chamber, despite having immunity from arrest while in a council meeting. What has been even more shocking is that the SAPS also failed to carry out their Constitutional duty to serve and protect the citizens of Plettenberg Bay. Instead of doing so they openly took sides with Mvimbi and the ANC and hid behind obfuscations and spurious arguments. Just a few years ago, they too arrested a councillor in this chamber with no regard whatsoever for his immunity. On that occasion they were happy to make an unlawful arrest, but on this occasion they were not even prepared to take the lesser and lawful action of removing Mvimbi from the chamber to protect the public and uphold the Constitution. In our law a municipal council is no different and no less a part of government than any one of the Provincial Parliaments, National Parliament or the NCOP. To prevent any one of these institutions from doing its work, as Mvimbi and his ANC supporters did, can only be seen as a direct attack on government and the Constitution. Had this happened at our National Parliament, it would have been a full blown constitutional crisis. There is little difference between what is transpiring here with

Mvimbi, the ANC and the SAPS and what has transpired in Zimbabwe where the police have supported the losing party and its leader to disrupt the chosen government of the majority. It is in the light of the above that I have taken the decision to appoint a private security company to protect government in Plettenberg Bay, the councillors, officials and the public who wish to exercise their right to attend this meeting and do the work of government in peace and safety. I will also not allow Mvimbi to enter the chamber to attend this meeting which he has so badly interrupted. He is of course welcome to attend the next meeting of Council as it is his right to do. It is sad that he will not be able to represent those people who voted for him at this meeting, but it has been his own choice. The Bitou Council and I will not be prevented from delivering the services this community rightfully expects from us. We will do so openly and transparently and that includes conducting well-run, effective and efficient council meetings. Johann Brummer EVER WANTED to try Skimboarding?

Lisa 082 971 5595 Letter via the Editor Due to your respect, please allow me to express my views to the newly elected Executive Mayor ’Memory Booysen’ and Deputy Mayor ’Adam Van Rhyner’ of Bitou Municipality. Our Executive Mayor Memory Booysen has what it takes to be a leader, fully matured, well disciplined and with all the ammunition that he has, will continue where former Mayer Lulama Mvimbi left off. For the past years in council, Memory has accumulated experience as a Ward Councilor, walking on thin ice, ducking and diving and still he have served our people with loyalty and discipline. Memory is a self servant of our people, black, coloured and whites, I have no doubt in my mind that the town of Plettenberg Bay under the leadership of Memory will grow from strength to strength. He has already demonstrated this by appointing a team of capable leaders, such as the mayoral committee and by not accepting the X5 BMW, while he was a school leader who need financial Aid, he also ended the June 16 corrupt budget, he also supported the Anti-Drug Awareness Campaign and also the 2011 Schools Festival. This is a well balanced team, that will certainly make Plettenberg Bay a world class town by 2020. Congratulations my brother, don’t feel threatened we are all behind you. The road that you are travelling has got terrible speed humps, be careful, watch your speed, my personal advice, drive slowly power is all what other people live on, if there’s no power there’s no life. You have got a long road behind you and a hell of a job to do. King Dwight CHAS EVERITT - Turtle Creek R4,4m. New 4beds en-suite. Excellent investment. John Call: 082 905 1516

Snippets for the Week We continue to receive daily donations for the Charity Shop. Thank you so very much for all the support we get, as this enables us to sterilize daily. This is a joint effort and we are succeeding! I took a dog in from New Horizons this week, which had been tied up with a pair of pantihose. By him pulling on this, it just became tighter and tighter, which of course, caused the deepest gash in his neck. He had been in this state for almost 3 weeks. Thank you to Dr Laura Snyman for treating him. The owner's niece will now take responsibility for him and hopefully he will recover soon. Good news is that the case regarding the dog burnt with boiling water - by an 18 year old, was NOT thrown out, but postponed to the 22nd of this month! Hopefully she will receive community service and eventually start caring about animals. We have many Customers wanting Spiritual books, DVD's, Bibles, CD's and so on. Should you have any unwanted items, please donate to our shop. We are also urgently needing bric-a-brac, ornaments and kitchen utensils. These are fast moving items and we need to keep our shelves full. Still no news regarding the breeding of Pitbulls without licences from Law Enforcement. As long as Pitbulls remain the breed of choice for criminals, every Pitbull remains at high risk for suffering from abuse and neglect. Something urgently needs to be done in this regard. Healing Energy We need to help those who are unable to help themselves - The children and the animals! Heidi 082 212 1613 Bitou Community Vet Clinic
