THE BEST YOU CAN BE! If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill Be a scrub in the valley -but be The best little scrub by the side of the rill; Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass, And some highway some happier make; If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass-But the liveliest bass in the lake! We can't all be captains, we've got to be crew, There's something for all of us here. There's big work to do and there's lesser to do, And the task we must do is the near. If you can't be a highway then just be a trail, If you can't be the sun be a star; It isn't by size that you win or you fail-Be the best of whatever you are! Douglas Malloch

Letter Via the Editor On Sunday evening, I was stopped in a routine road block on the N2, just passed the Natures Valley Rd. Whilst my car was being inspected, a police officer had pulled over another car infront of me. Then to my amazement, the passengers of this vehicle promptly started to throw their rubbish out the window. Expecting the officer to tell them they are committing an illegal offence and they should pick up their mess, he condoned it by kicking one of the bottles into the bush on the verge. Not one to bite my tongue, I told him that he should be setting an example. He turned to me and said SHUT UP! Not a nice experience for my children to witness. Is this behavior acceptable ???

WE BOUGHT A ZOO Based on a true story, this is the tale of how a family used their life savings to buy a dilapidated zoo, stocked with 200 exotic animals, and set to close. Dad and the kids had to balance caring for his wife, who was dying of brain cancer, while dealing with escaped tigers, raising endangered animals, working with an eclectic skeleton crew and jumping through legal hoops to ready the zoo for a reopening.

A city youth moves to a small town, where he is horrified to discover that they have banned loud music and dancing after an incident a few years previously. He naturally sets about challenging this edict, his main enemy being the local preacher. The preacher has a pretty daughter and our city boy and her are soon an item, further complicating issues between the main protagonists.

WHAT ABOUT ME 1 Giant Leap, the global philosophy and music concept band which brought us the double Grammy nominated Unity Through Diversity, returns with the unmissable multimedia masterpiece ‘What About Me? ‘What About Me?’ gives a fascinating insight into universal issues and our collective insanity: how we are ego-driven, insatiable in desire, wounded by childhood and unable to stop thinking, whilst leaving viewers feeling overwhelmingly inspired and empowered.

Plett Gymnastics Club Letter via the Editor I am writing to you on behalf of the Plett Gymnastics Club, Plettenberg Bay. The club offers three different disciplines to gymnasts, namely Artistic, Trampoline and Tumbling. The Trampoline sport became very popular amongst the gymnasts and last year (2011), Four of our gymnasts (after only 6 months’ practice) represented our club at the SA Gym Games. They came home with 2 gold medals and a bronze. We already have a Mini Trampoline and a

Black Top trampoline. As a result of the above, and the overwhelming interest shown by the other gymnasts, we need to purchase our own Double Mini Trampoline. This will also result in more gymnasts being trained locally, as we are currently driving to George, Mossel Bay and Port Elizabeth for practice and most of the gymnasts, especially the less fortunate children, cannot afford the costs involved. Our aim is also to get more disadvantaged children from the rural areas involved in the sport. To enable us to buy the trampoline, we are in need of at least R60 000 and therefore we ask you through this letter for a donation of any amount which you seem convenient for the purpose. Donations can be paid directly to the club’s bank account, details as follows: Plett Gymnastics Centre, First National Bank, Branch Code 210514 Acc. No. 62296433148 Reference: Donation & Name/Surname We would be most grateful for any amount of money and wish to assure you that the money will not be misused. Thank you for considering our request.

Sad State of Affairs Part 2 The Lumen Christi Creche and Educare Centre plus the Enrichment Centre for 16 home-based creches in Kwanokuthula, were once again the target of thieves. They were broken into on Saturday and Sunday night (making it 4 times in a week!). Apart from breaking doors and windows, nothing was stolen except for 2 pockets of potatoes and meat from a forced open deep freeze. This was to feed the 120 pre-schoolers who attend the Creche, sometimes being the only solid daily meal for some of the children. The Principal and Staff, who work so hard are devastated to think that this could happen yet again. They have been informed that 2 suspects will be arrested shortly. Security measures are in the pipeline to be increased, hopefully making it "thief-proof". Plettenberg Bay - the Jewel of the Garden Route - is quickly becoming very tarnished due to the escalating crime rate. Foreign tourists are not as evident as they were a few years ago, and many shops are standing empty. Let us all work together and stamp out this evil that is ruining our town. Sylvia.

Oriented Birds Newsfeed Dear to all our readers and supporters; the previous week was not a good one for both our teams that played as we lost our encounters respectively. Our development side lost to Black Tigers F.C. 3-2 and the premier side to Ikada Sporting F.C. 2-1 last Friday. This was one of our firmly games so far as it is a huge challenge to play on Friday away; It is indeed a disadvantage to us in terms of getting all the players we need and resources too are problematic. But I thank everyone who risked their jobs and school just to make sure that we have a team to compete, I thank you guys. Our development team will be on two weeks break while the premier side will be facing Salt River Blackpool on their own backyard in Shelly Road, Salt River (Cape Town) on Saturday 25th at 15H00. We are here to stay and we have objectives to achieve, thank you for your support, thanks for believing in our young stars and thank god for protecting us week in week out, as we travel weekly. Thank you to What’s New for this opportunity and to our fans, hang on the joy is coming. God Bless y’all From Lunga (Manager) Follow us on facebook and now twitter

Thank you to Steve - Pix by Steve for the awesome photo-shoot - cannot wait to see the results!

A Thought for the Week Rev.21:1a [BBE] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were gone…….. I was struck by the words used by Charmaine, our wonderful editor of the What’s New in Plett and personal friend, when I read last week’s editorial. “Grumpy or smiley… we live in the most beautiful part of the world, surrounded by God’s amazing creation.” How blessed we are indeed when we look around us at the vast and beautiful ocean on the one side of our town and the majestic mountain range on the other side. I often wonder when I look at all this beauty and try to image: If this fallen, broken world is presently so beautiful, what must it be like after Christ’s return when God restores the earth to it’s original creation at

the Millennium or, even more mind boggling, when He creates the promised new Heaven and the new earth. Paul, in his first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 2, verse 9, writes: “…..as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared [made and keeps ready] for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits he has bestowed].” [Amp.Bible] However, even though the new earth will be much more beautiful than the present one, it will be a better place to live in by far because God, in Christ, will dwell on it in the midst of His people. In the Book of Revelation, John writes: ”And there will be no more curse: and the high seat of God and of the Lamb will be there; and his servants will be worshipping him; And they will see his face; and his name will be on their brows. And there will be no more night; and they have no need of a light or of the shining of the sun; for the Lord God will give them light: and they will be ruling for ever and ever. [Rev.22:3-5] What a wonderful promise to be looking out for – a promise for all who have placed their faith [trust] in Jesus Christ. No matter what we have to endure right now, be it suffering or pain, loneliness or any other kind of hardship, there will come a day, soon, when all of that will forever pass away and when those who are believers will find eternal rest with Christ. The same John writes in Revelation, chapter 21, verse 3-4: “And there came to my ears a great voice out of the high seat, saying, See, the Tent of God is with men, and he will make his living-place with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them, and be their God. And he will put an end to all their weeping; and there will be no more death, or sorrow, or crying, or pain; for the first things have come to an end.” Are you going to be a part of that? Henk.

Thank You TO ALL PLETT VISITORS AND RESIDENTS NSRI Street Collection, Fun Run and Golf Day On behalf of Station 14 of the NSRI in Plettenberg Bay I would sincerely like to thank all the visitors and residents of Plettenberg Bay for the very generous support which you have given our organisation during the holiday season. The December street collection, fun run and golf day were all very successful fundraising events and truly enjoyed by ourselves and those who assisted and participated. The funds which we received from you will be used to purchase medical and rescue equipment for our new station at Central beach and also to keep our rescue craft in a good seaworthy condition. The NSRI relies solely on donations and money collected to operate the station and as you are aware none of our very enthusiastic crew receives any compensation for the excellent and sometimes very dangerous tasks which they undertake. Thanks once again and only with your help and support are we able to keep Plettenberg Bay's coastline safe for all those who live and enjoy their holidays here.

Kranshoek Advice Centre: Career Day When matric results came out at the beginning of the year only then our children decided on a career. People wishing to pursue a certain career should research it carefully before getting into it. The choice must be determined by your passion, love and your strong points. For example, if you want to be a nurse, you must have a love of nursing, a regard for sick people and all the responsibilities that come with the job. Many nurses have joined the nursing force for the wrong reasons like money and status. When choosing a career money should not be a priority. Wrong career paths are main causes of the escalating number of drop-outs at university level. Identify your strong and weak points. If you are good in maths that does not mean you will be a good engineer, although it does

Letter via the Editor On Friday the 17 February I arrived home from town to find that my geyser had burst. Luckily it is on my back stoep so the water ran off into the garden but here I was without hot water and it was already 16H45. I immediately phoned my Insurance Company and explained the situation to them. By 16H55 the claim was approved and I received the claim number on my cellphone. I then phone Reg, at Home Assured, who is the agent for the insurance company, who promised me that he would be at my home at 08H30 on Saturday morning to replace the geyser. Lo and behold at 08H30 the gate buzzer rang and by 11H45 they were on their way. After all the reports of bad service I felt I had to share my wonderful experience.

Rose Scott - 082 822 6146 Letter Via the Editor ANTI-DRUGS!!!!! A warm hug to the wonderful team of WNIP. Best of wishes to all of you for 2012.I have great vision for this year. If the one thing does not work, then I’ll be sure to try another. The prayer walks was not supported very well by our community., but that should not be a reason to neglect all attempts to save our youth. God has graced me with an incredible gift to work with people and bring out the best in them. I am a worship dancer and has brought a lot of dance productions to the stage. My vision for 2012 is to start with “Street Ministry”…..Taking the Beat to the streets. Too many children, teenagers and young adults are just wondering around… no purpose, no plans, no nothing. I want to contribute to their lives through dance. Ek doen dus n beroep op almal wat hierdie skrywe lees> Stuur jou kinders om te kom dans. Kom dans jouself. Die idée is om kinders besig te hou, en minder ruimte te skep vir ledigheid.

The dance ministry includes: Worship dancing, flags, billows and tambourines, mime, praise dancing, hip-hop, contemporary, and whatever the Holy Spirit teaches us. Our first Dance workshop, featuring Warren Steward Choreographer and leader of “ Free To Dance” (Word Of Faith Port Elizabeth) will be on Saturday 03 March 2012 @ 15h00. Registration fees to cover his expenses, will be R30(adults) and R20 (Youth).Please do watch the WNIP for further updates and also venue confirmation. Hope to see some new faces at the New Life Centre on Mondays @ 6. For any information pls do not hesitate to contact me on 0798786493. Chrystal ARE YOU a professional nurse?
