The Brooklyn branch of Benevolent Ministry, a redemptive and social programme of the Fountain of Joy Ministries, Assembly of God, is keeping destitute people busy on Thursdays by spreading the good news of God and also creating jobs for them. Those who are ‘down and out’ can still contribute positively to society. They have recently been making giant hearts out of donated linen for Kiddies Boutique in Kensington, which ties in nicely with yesterday’s Valentine’s Day. Photo: André Bakkes
) No witnesses but wallet stolen
Hitandrun man dies ANDRÉ BAKKES AND MANDLA MAHASHE
Another life was taken after a hit-and-run accident near Montague Gardens. This time someone had the temerity to rob the victim of his wallet. Mawethu Feni (49), the father of four children, died of head injuries in hospital last week Tuesday after he was apparently hit by a truck
driver on 25 January at 05:30 in the morning. According to Milnerton police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Daphne Dell, Feni was riding to work on his bicycle when the driver hit him so hard “that a part of the bumper was still lying in the road”. An officer who was on his way to the police station arrived on the scene moments after the accident occurred, but to date there are no witnesses.
The unfortunate victim was on his way to the Milnerton Race Course stables, where he has apparently been working for about a year. Feni, whose wife died in 2011, is survived by four children. His grieving nephew, Zukile Mpaka, says: “It is a very painful time for us as a family and his children are now living on their own and they are still at school. We want to find out what exactly happened to him so we can find closure.”
Mpaka says that Feni’s wife died early in 2011 in a car accident. One of the stable’s representatives, who preferred to stay anonymous, described Feni as a “quiet boy” who minded his own business. “This is a very sad story,” he continues. “Nobody knows exactly what happened that morning, but I find it very fishy that his wallet was stolen as well. Feni was a super chap and he was well liked.”
He reckons the family must approach the road accident fund for compensation, because Feni’s children who live in Transkei, depend on the little money that Feni sent to them every month. TygerBurger reported last week about a man in Milnerton who was also the victim of a hit-and-run. The police and Mpaka are appealing to any person to assist the police by contacting the station on 021 528 3800.

Clothes ‘in storage’ suddenly taken ANDRÉ BAKKES
A Milnerton resident is at her wits end after all her belongings were allegedly stolen. Lorraine Maree (71) now only owns a few items of clothing and she suspects foul play. She stored five suitcases and 23 boxes full of sentimental possessions for a few months at a house in Daniel Road and then one day she heard a truck came past the house and told someone at the house that Maree told them to load everything into the truck.
Maree was, according to them, moving to Tzaneen and needed her belongings. She claims this is utter nonsense, however. “Only a handful of people knew I stored my possessions there! I went to the house recently and they told me my stuff isn’t there any more, ‘because I sent for it’! I said to the man, ‘Tell me you are joking!’” She went to Milnerton Police and opened a case immediately. “I spoke to the owner of the house, Irwin von Molendorff, and asked him why he didn’t phone me immediately to ask whether it’s okay to
let these people take my things! He said, ‘Well they brought your name and address...’,” she continues in a flat spin. Some of these belongings apparently included her late brother’s ashes and first editions of books. The monetary and sentimental value is, according to Maree, undefinable. Add to that that she has virtually no clothes now. She rented a room at Von Molendorff’s place for about six months and then moved out, but asked if she could rent a space in the garage to store these things.
When TygerBurger contacted Von Molendorff he was exasperated that another newspaper called him. “There is a rumour doing the rounds that this is nothing but a scam,” he says. “I heard that her modus operandi is that wherever she stays that she doesn’t pay rent.” According to him Maree asked him whether she can store a “couple” of boxes in his garage for a R100 a month, but it was much more than just a “couple” and they were “full of junk”. “I ask myself, ‘Who paid for the movers? They were a professional
company with all her details,” he continues. Unfortunately no-one took note of the name of the “legitimate” moving company. Von Molendorff concludes, “I also never guaranteed that her things will be safe, because a few other people have keys to the garage. Maree in the meantime says she owns virtually nothing in this world and doesn’t know where to turn to. If anyone has information that could be vital to this case they are urged to phone Milnerton police on 021 528 3800.

Vagrancy in Table View and surrounds seems to be a problem that is not going away any time soon. This issue was again brought up during the first meeting of the year of the Table View Ratepayers’ Association (TVRA). Despite the efforts of law enforcement and local police there isn’t much that can be done in eradicating the scourge of “trolley pushers” that frequent areas like Table View, Parklands, Sunningdale and West Beach. Heather Brenner ward councillor for Ward 107 which includes Parklands, Sunningdale and Table View believes the vagrancy problem is directly related to the recycling contracts that the city has awarded to certain companies. “Their contracts state that these companies have to remove 20 percent recyclable waste from the city’s refuse. What now happens, is that the vagrants get to the bins before the recycling companies and collect the recyclable rubbish. This means the companies have to buy back their recyclable waste from the trolley brigade to make their quota,” Brenner explained. She said this also meant that the
vagrants sleep over in the area to be able to raid the rubbish bins first thing in the morning. “The other problem is that they leave one hell of a mess behind,” she said. Green belts in West Beach, Parklands and the service road on the corner of Blaauwberg and Koeberg roads are some of the areas the trolley pushers use to sort their loot. Brenner stressed that acting against the trolley pushers was an exercise in futility. “Their human rights are protected as are ours under the constitution. They cannot be arrested or prevented from walking the streets unless they have committed a crime or are suspected of committing a crime,” she said. Mike Channing, newly elected chairperson of the TVRA said there were rumours of syndicates making use of trolley pushers to hide, transport and distribute stolen goods. “We heard they sell the stolen goods to taxi drivers,” Channing said. This was however rebutted by colonel Dirk Vosloo, station commander of Table View Police Station. “You might catch them with a sto-
len garden chair or something like that, but a trolley pusher will not be stealing a big screen television for instance. Our house robberies are done by people outside the area and are far more organised. At the moment I have two detectives who are in the Eastern Cape to follow up stolen property of R40 000 that was identified as being stolen here,” Vosloo said. He said police have not had any proof that the trolley pushers were used by syndicates to distribute stolen goods. Brenner said possible solutions including the confiscating of trolleys or having shops charge consumers a deposit fee for trolley use proved futile. “We approached Pick n Pay with the idea of charging a trolley deposit fee in an effort to curb trolleys disappearing from their property but they weren’t interested.” She said other shopping chains also won’t be in favour of the idea for the sake of staying competitive. She added that the shops also are not interested in laying charges against trolley pushers. Brenner said a proposal to amend business licence conditions relating to trolley usage to address this problem, will be investigated.

Drunk drivers ‘big concern’ City of Cape Town Metro Police Officers arrested 52 suspects (including 47 drunk drivers) during roadblocks and joint operations with the South African Police Services this weekend. On Sunday, members of the Substance Abuse Unit (SAU) partnered with the police to conduct an integrated operation in Goodwood, in which one suspect was arrested in Bettie Verwoerd Street on charges of murder and his cellphone confiscated. In addition, 127 traffic fines were issued, to the value of R60 000. Members of the SAU also received information about another murder suspect from the police and conducted an integrated ope-
ration in Albow Gardens, Brooklyn. Officers consequently arrested one suspect on a charge of murder. During the arrest officers also recovered the victim’s vehicle and two cellphones. During roadblocks on Saturday and Sunday officers also arrested 11 motorists in Eerste River – all on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. “The number of arrests for drunk driving remains a major concern,” says Metro Police deputy chief Yolanda Faro. “Motorists who continue to drive drunk are warned: it’s not a matter of where the next roadblock or operation will be conducted, but rather when you will get caught.”

MyCiTi pay card ‘the future’ LEON STEENKAMP
While some commuters are still struggling to make peace with the new electronic card payment system of the MyCiTi bus service the city is lauding it as the way of the future in public transport. Councillor Brett Herron, mayoral committee member for transport, roads and stormwater attended a meeting of the Table View Ratepayers’ Association last week to answer some of the burning questions. Herron says the introduction of an automated fee collection system for all public transport services was an instruction given by the National Department of Transport. “The National Department of Transport issued a directive that all public transport make use of the EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) card system to allow for inter-operability on all modes of public transport. “The Southern Peninsula Taxi Association has also started using the Tap-I-Fare card and we have had some commuters use this card on our buses,” Herron explained the one-card-fits-all approach. He said all new automated fair collection systems put into place after June 2011 had to make use of the EMV system. “Existing systems must become compliant in making use of the EMV by June 2016.” This will include the Gautrain in Johannesburg. He said although many of the public are not happy with a bank benefiting from the
electronic system, the partnership with a bank is part and parcel of the system. “The tender for the system was awarded to ICT-Works who needed a banking partner and they decided on Absa. In Durban’s eThekwini Municipality the service provider there is in partnership with Standard Bank,” Herron explained. The myconnect card will also act as a debit card with the functionality of making purchases of under R200 at supported merchants in the future. He added that those who were opposed to investing in the myconnect card as an additional debit card could soon choose to acquire a similar card from their bank of choice as many SA banks are in the process of developing their own cards. The myconnect system replaced the paper ticket system on 28 January. As of 27 January 13 532 people have bought myconnect cards. “We had expected to sell about 7 000 cards, as this is the approximate number of regular passengers. The number of 13 532 cards sold is 100 percent more than we expected, which is very encouraging. It shows that the system has been successfully adopted and implemented,” said Herron. In answer to questions regarding the efficiency, economy and job creation possibilities of the paper ticket system, Herron said this system was always meant to be temporary. “The paper ticket system was always a temporary measure to allow the city to
launch the MyCiTi service. Rather than delay the launch of the MyCiTi services, the interim paper-ticket system was devised to allow people to ride the buses while the myconnect card system was finalised and tested to ensure that it is implemented successfully in a phased manner. “Myconnect has always been a key part of the design of a sustainable MyCiTi service, and the myconnect system is being introduced in phases. At the end of each phase the city tests and measures to ensure that lessons learnt in each phase are implemented and the system refined to ensure that the customer benefits. When all the phases have been introduced, in the not-too-distant future, the city will have catered for our various users,” he said. When buying a myconnect card, commuters get two emergency tickets to use should they get stuck without value on their card. “These tickets substantially reduce the R22 activation cost.” This R22 is also redeemable when you hand in your myconnect card at any station provided you have kept your receipt. “This may be an inconvenience for some people, but it is a short-term inconvenience, because later this year a single-trip option will be available. This will benefit tourists and visitors to the city who may not want to purchase a card.” For the irregular users of the MyCiTi service another benefit of the card is that the money on the card does not expire, so you can load money on the card to use any time.
Minibus taxis adopting card pay system The inter-usability of one automated fair collection system is already illustrated by the introduction of a money-less card payment system for minibus taxis. The city of Cape Town has welcomed the recently introduced Tap-I-Fare card payment system, a MasterCard PayPass brought out by the taxi industry in several provinces across the country. The card is similar to the myconnect card used to pay for fares on the MyCiTi buses in Cape Town. “We welcome the introduction of the Tap-I-Fare card. This is in line with the vision of the city, and the National Depart-
ment of Transport, to create an inter-connected national public transport system with a single payment method, that is interoperable, making the lives of commuters simpler and more convenient. Passengers are already using their Tap-I-Fare cards on the MyCiTi buses, and the myconnect cards are able to be used on minibus taxis that have validators installed in them, ” said Councillor Brett Herron, mayoral committee member for transport, roads and stormwater. The Tap-I-Fare card is available from designated retail points (for example at the taxi rank in town and in the Water-

front complex) where passengers can buy the smartcard and load money onto it with cash. “We at Tap-I-Fare are very excited to be part of this initiative in Cape Town, and with the support from the local minibus taxi industry we intend to expand beyond the V&A route soon,” said managing director of Tap-I-Fare Pierre Bruwer. Next month First National Bank is scheduled to launch their own EMV compliant card, with Absa having already launched their own. All these cards function as low-balance debit cards as well.

Grade R school bursting at the seams The ACVV Koeberg preschool in Melkbosstrand is bursting at the seams and desperately needs a classroom. The local charity organisation started its Grade R class last year with great success. “We had 19 kids in the class of which seven were deemed school ready. Those seven are now in Van Riebeeckstrand Primary and doing really well. The other 12 stayed behind and were joined by new friends,” said the organisation’s Nikki Pretorius. “This year, our class has 38 children (so far) and it seems to increase daily. Unfortunately we only have one classroom and thus are forced to turn children away who are unable to pay anywhere else. This means they will be unable to get any form of preschool education until we are able to accommodate them,” Pretorius explained saying that classes are by law not allowed to accommodate more than 35 children. She said the closing of another local creche has made the demand
The Grade R class of the ACVV Koeberg in Melkbosstrand is bursting at the seams and they are in need of an additional classroom. even greater. “There are 10 children who would like to come register with us for this year. Their creche closed down and they are without any form of day-
care. What is most disturbing is that these children are meant to be attending Grade 1 next year, but the longer it takes for us to accommodate them, the lower the chances
that they will be school ready.” Pretorius said they have a qualified volunteer teacher and assistant who are willing to teach a second class but that they are in need of a
classroom. “We are in urgent need of funds to acquire a second classroom which is large enough to accommodate a class of 30 kids,” she said. Pretorius believes a wendy house of 3,6 x 9 metres which includes a veranda and an insulated roof will cost R46 660. This price excludes the addition of electricity to the building. She says the ideal is a 6m x 9m fibre cement classroom with a sliding door and windows. This will include two toilets and wash basins. “This classroom however costs R107 000 and a bit beyond our immediate reach,” Pretorius said. The ACVV will welcome any input, assistance, contributions or insights with this project. Pretorius said all donors can be issued with a section 18a tax deductible donation certificates as well as certification for BEE audits. “We are also happy to give formal recognition in terms of media and advertising on the building itself.” Pretorius can be contacted on 021 553 9080, 082 828 9307 or email@example.com.
Jonges se gesindheid, dade sal verskil maak Jong mense in Suid-Afrika is dikwels negatief oor die situasie in ons land. Faktore soos werkloosheid, politiek, misdaad en korrupsie maak dat baie jong mense nie meer ’n toekoms hier sien nie. Hulle is skepties en raak selfs fatalisties oor die samelewing waarbinne hulle ’n taak en rol het om te speel. Watter gedagtes van hoop is daar vir jong mense? Hoe moet die jeug die vloed van negatiwiteit hanteer wat hulle daagliks hoor en sien en ervaar? Ek het ’n paar voorstelle vir die jong mens in 2012: . Leef voluit.

One dead in headon LEON STEENKAMP
A man from Bothasig died after his Lotus sports vehicle was involved in a head-on collision in Melkbosstrand last week. According to Captain Ronita van der Toorn it seems the the 49year-old driver of the Lotus lost control of the vehicle before colliding with a stationary Honda Civic at a stop street in Otto du Plessis road on Tuesday afternoon at around 12:15. “We cannot say whether speed
played a role in the incident,” Van der Toorn said. According to ER24’s Andre Visser paramedics found the single occupant and driver of the Lotus in a critical condition when they arrived at the scene. “He had sustained a severe head injury as well as a broken right leg,” Visser said. Paramedics administered Advanced Life Support treatment to the driver before transporting him to Mediclinic Milnerton for further care. The driver of the black Honda
who was also the only occupant of the vehicle received treatment and transportation from the scene by another ambulance service. The Lotus driver died later that evening. Police could on Monday not release his name as the body had not yet been identified by the family. The deceased’s wife was approached for comment but declined to give any. Van der Toorn said they are investigating the accident and would have more information later.

Rotary thanked for computers ANDRÉ BAKKES
“Ysterplaat Junior Primary feels very special and grateful towards Blouberg Rotary Club for donating 27 brand new computers and flat screen monitors to be utilised in our computer room!” These words were spoken by Beverley Blake, the school’s admin clerk, but they might as well have been uttered by every pupil, teacher and parent. The Rotary Club managed to get the required funds after years of donations and could finally do what keeps them going – making a difference in other people’s lives. The Rotary’s Helène Visser was at the forefront of their latest distribution of goodwill and she managed
to get other Rotary clubs from Germany, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America to top up their own funds and buy computer equipment to the value of about R120 000 for Ysterplaat Junior Primary. Visser explains: “It took us two and a half years to raise the funds, which was especially difficult due to the recession.” This latest donation makes it 10 schools they have helped with computers in 10 years. “We helped schools such as Woodbridge Primary and De Grendel, but I know the principal of Ysterplaat, Elsabé Rautenbach, and always wanted the Rotary to help them as well. So I wrote letters to clubs all over the world and we finally managed to raise the required funds.
The computer room at Ysterplaat was officially opened in December last year during a function attended by Rotary members and officials from Western Cape Education Department, Central District. Rautenbach said at the time that this donation will fill a void that the school would never have been able to fill. “The staff and learners of Ysterplaat Junior Primary salute the splendid efforts of Helène Visser and her Rotary colleagues, and appreciate the difference they are making in our learners’ lives,” she concludes. Visser urges people to join their Club if they want to make a difference in the lives of others. Go to www.blobergrotary.co.za for more information.
Blouberg Rotary’s Bruce Lewis and Dave Ferguson look on while Ysterplaat Junior Primary’s pupils get to know the computers the Rotary sponsored for the school.
Say ‘Cheese’ if you spot this lost weaver LEON STEENKAMP
Conrad Morgenrood and Cheese enjoyed spending time together.
A Parklands family is willing to grasp at whatever straw they can find if it means the safe return of their adopted weaver bird. Cheese the weaver bird, was raised by the Morgenrood family after it was found abandoned and almost featherless at the Eden on the Bay Shopping Centre in October last year. “My sister in law spotted the little bird lying on the ground. After making sure there wasn’t a mommy around, she picked it up and brought it home,” explained Wilna Morgenrood. “My sister has a dog and could therefore not keep the bird. We already have three birds and she asked us to look after it,” said the bird lover who also owns a budgie, ringneck and Hahn’s macaw. Very soon Cheese became a joy in the lives of Wilna, her husband Adrian and their nine-year-old son, Conrad. “He is very friendly, loves to play with your hair and your toes, and adopts anyone in the flock very quickly,” Morgenrood
said. “When we are not at home he has a room to himself and when we are here he roams free,” said Morgenrood. Last week Tuesday tragedy struck as Cheese overshot the boundary wall of the Morgenrood’s house in Falcon Crescent. “We were busy training him with the idea of releasing him when he is older. The wind took him and he overshot the wall. We tried looking for him but it is a big neighbourhood,” she said. “We think he lost his way home. He is still a baby and will be unable to look for food himself so he will most probably go to people. We just hope they don’t put him in a cage,” Morgenrood explained. Cheese is a little brown and cream bird with yellow tipped wings. “He has a small bold spot on his head, a sharp little mouth and sings beautifully – like a canary.” Wilna Morgenrood is appealing to anyone who may have found Cheese to please contact her on 082 455 6241. “If he has decided to adopt you, please let us know. He is a part of our family and is missed dearly,” she said.
Angus Buchan tydens ’n vorige Mighty Menbyeenkoms.
Mans moet ‘aflosstok aangee’ Daar sal vanjaar geen Mighty Men-konferensie (MMC) in die Wes-Kaap aangebied word nie. “Die era het nou aangebreek vir elke man om self op te staan en die boodskap van hoop en die goeie nuus elke dag en op elke vlak van die samelewing uit te leef,” sê Hardus Zevenster, uitvoerende hoof van Radio Tygerberg en lid van die reëlingskomitee. Hy sê die tyd het aangebreek vir die sade wat gesaai is by MMC, om in dade uit te bars wat moet groei tot kragtige bome. “Die aflosstok wat tydens Mighty Men deur duisende mans vasgegryp is, moet nou verder aangegee word. Mighty Men was ’n wonderlike geestelike inspuiting, ja, maar daar is tog gevind dat talle daarna weer in ou weë verval... tot die volgende konferen-
sie.” Hy sê die bestuur van Mighty Men WesKaap het baie gebed en samesprekings met Angus Buchan, die simbool van Mighty Men, gehou. “Ons het daarvan oortuig geraak dat ons Vader met ’n nuwe seisoen besig is en dat Mighty Men en dít wat ons Vader daardeur wou bereik, voltooi is,” het Zevenster gesê. “Ons glo dat God, as Vader van kreatiwiteit, ’n vars plan vir die Wes-Kaap het. Ons sien met afwagting uit na wat Hy besig is om met Sy wondervingers vir die provinsie te vorm.” Daar sal egter vanjaar wel twee konferensies elders in die land aangebied word, naamlik die Mighty Men Karoo, van 27 tot 29 April, en ook die Mighty Men Transvaal van 9 tot 11 Maart.

‘Not just about food’ ANDRÉ BAKKES
“For us it is not just about food. We declare the council of God. We speak about His goodness, His grace and His love. We basically spread the good news,” says Pastor Philip Carls. Good news is just what most of the “down and out” folks of Brooklyn crave most. However, the Brooklyn branch of Benevolent Ministry of the Fountain of Joy Ministries, Assembly of God church also have a social responsibility, so every Thursday they give food to about 40 desolate people. It is undoubtedly a welcome break from their ignominious exist-
ence, both for their bodies and their souls. Carls continues: “The food, clothing and shelter is always secondary. We have church and then we share a meal. We started doing this some time in March last year and they have help about 40 to 45 people per week ever since.” The base is in Woodstock and Carls says the church there has been doing a similar thing for well on 20 years. The food is fully funded by the Benevolent Ministry. “In Brooklyn we have seen a lot of ladies who are hurting or ‘broken’, just because of what life does to people, so my wife has embarked on a programme to restore selfworth. We make them feel like they
are still beautiful and can still contribute to society.” It is in essence a skills development programme where mostly women are making things such as giant linen shaped hearts. Carls emphasises that this isn’t just done to keep the people busy, because there are always buyers lined up. Those who contribute actually get compensated. “This is the house of God. When you walk in here you respect the house of God. You come to church. I tell them that they don’t come here to see me, or my wife, or to have a good time or share in the great fellowship. They come here to hear what the spirit of God is saying. As a bonus, we will share a meal together,” he concludes.

Projek gaan gestremdes help MARANA BRAND VAN HULSTEYN
’n Egpaar van Parow het ’n slim projek begin om geld in te samel vir elektriese toestelle wat vooraan gewone rolstoele knip en so die gebruiker baie meer mobiel maak.
Die "Firefly" is 'n elektriese toestel wat vooraan enige gewone rolstoel vas knip en die gebruiker baie meer beweeglikheid gee.
Chris en Sandra Swanepoel se projek, Donuts 4 Wheels, begin op 1 Maart en loop op 27 April, Vryheidsdag, ten einde. Op dié dag wil hulle graag reeds die toestelle aan die gelukkige rolstoelgebruikers oorhandig. Sandra sê die elektriese toestel, ook Firefly genoem, knip vooraan standaardrolstoele vas. Mense moet nog hul arms/hande kan gebruik om die aankniptoestel te kan gebruik. Met die toestel kan die gebruiker vorentoe en agtertoe in die rolstoel beweeg, teen tot 10 km/h. Die battery hou vir 24 km voor dit weer gelaai moet word en trek 130 kg.
Omdat dit baie maklik aan- en afknip, kan dit los in ’n motor gelaai word. (Om te sien hoe dit werk, kyk na ’n videogreep by http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=W4jESFIbAS0.) Sandra sê hulle soek nie skenkers of borge nie. “Ons wil géén donasies ontvang nie.” Hulle wil hierdie liefdadigheidsprojek doen deur ’n slim manier van werkskepping waartydens mense tot R10 000 oor die 50 dae van die projek kan verdien. Die plan is dat vrywilligers, wat individue, sakeondernemings en skole kan insluit, elke dag vir 50 dae 200 donuts verkoop. Dié groot donuts kos R5 elk en die verkoper steek R1 hiervan in sy sak. Chris en Sandra koop self die donuts teen R2 elk by Goosebumps in Blackheath, wat dit elke dag vars bak. Daagliks sal 2 000 donuts by Pick n Pay Parow afgelewer word waarvandaan dit elke oggend versprei sal word. Hiermee beoog hulle om genoeg geld in te samel om vir soveel rol-
stoelgebruikers moontlik een van hierdie elektriese aanknip-toestelle te gee. Dié toestelle, waarskynlik die eerstes in Suid-Afrika, word van Amerika ingevoer en kos sowat R20 000 elk. Sandra en Chris het op dié projek besluit omdat Chris al vir jare ’n groot liefde vir enige elektriese motoraangedrewe toestelle het. Sandra is al vir meer as 30 jaar betrokke by gestremdes en mense met beweeglikheidsprobleme. Hoewel hulle die projek nou eers in hulle omgewing wil doen, was dit ná ’n onderhoud van Sandra op RSG, duidelik dat die hele land wil help, vertel sy. “Ons gaan kandidate vir die aanknip-toestel deur die media en LEAD SA werf. Gebruikers sal niks hiervoor hoef te betaal nie,” het sy gesê. . Enigiemand wat naby Parow woon of met eie vervoer daar kan kom en ’n blink plan het om 200 donuts per dag te verkoop, kan Sandra kontak by 084 511 5777.

Cabins epitome of ecofriendly CERRIN HENDRICKS
“Here we can forget the trouble of the city life and enjoy the nature that the Cape has to offer.” This is what Professor Aubrey Redlinghuis had to say at the opening of the Oudebosch cabins at Kogelberg Nature Reserve last Friday. The cabins are the result of several years of planning to create an eco-friendly tourism offering in the Western Cape, and boast wise water usage, low carbon emissions, and indigenous plants to ensure that tourists and locals alike can enjoy the natural beauty of the Cape. Anton Bredell, the provincial minister of local government, environmental affairs and development planning, gave a speech and thanked all those involved in the planning and development of the cabins. “We need to all take steps to ensure that our children can enjoy nature in the future,” said Bredell, adding that, “From today onwards all the people of the Western Cape can enjoy this pristine Heart of The Cape Floral Kingdom in style.” The new cabin area also contains South Africa’s first commercial Eco Pool, which uses no chemicals, and filters through a

Other innovations include solar water geysers and high efficiency appliances, which make each cabin use around two kilowatts of energy per day, which is about 10 percent less than the average South African household. Water usage is also being kept to a minimum, with low-flow showers and composting eco toi-
lets being used. The entire setup will also create jobs for the entire area, and employees will be hired from Kleinmond and other local areas. “We have gone completely local with this project, from the construction phase to the operation of the reserve and cabins. In the future we would like to continue doing this,” said Redlinghuis.
The Blues Broers will be part of the lineup at this year’s Big Blues Music Festival.

City gives cycling safety tips The City of Cape Town urges all road users to exercise caution and common sense on the city’s roads, especially now when a greater number of cyclists will be on the roads. At the start of each year there are a number of cycle races taking place in the build up to the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in March. This means that thousands of cyclists will be in training. “Cape Town is proud of its title as ‘Cycle City’. In everyone’s best interest, we call on all road users to share the road. There is enough space for everyone,” said JP Smith, mayoral committee member for safety and security of the City of Cape Town. “Along with the increased number of cyclists taking to the roads, comes an unfortunate increase in the number of accidents involving cyclists. “This is something that could be avoided, if all road users – motor vehicle drivers and cyclists – understand that they share the road, each with their own rights and responsibilities,” Smith said. “City traffic officers will be focusing on the behaviour of both cyclists and motorists and where the law is broken, fines will be issued. “While traffic officers will continue to monitor the behaviour of both cyclists and motorists, we appeal to all road users to exercise tolerance, awareness and mutual respect, especially during this busy cycling season,” Smith said. Some ways for cyclists to stay safer on Cape Town’s roads: . Be visible. Unlike in many global cities where thousands of cyclists commute by bicycle, drivers in South Africa don’t always expect cyclists. Cyclists can help by wearing high-visibility clothing, flashing LED belts and trouser-straps. Cyclists are also advised to ride 1,5m in from the road edge. . Obey the rules of the road: Cyclists should stop at stop signs and obey road signage like all other road users. . Be assertive but polite. Show other road users respect and they will show respect to cyclists. . Pay attention at intersections and traffic circles – particularly where you are travelling straight onward, and the vehicles are turning left. At stop streets and traffic lights, come to a stop slightly in front of the stationary vehicles, so that they’re unable to turn left in front of you. . Be predictable. Indicate where you intend to go – and smile. Ride often and keep up your urban riding skills, as nervous, hesitant cyclists often endanger pedestrians and motorists. . Ride in single file and wear a helmet – it’s against the law to ride without a helmet. Contact The Pedal Power Association (www.pedalpower.org.za/commuting/commuting/safe-cycling-tips/) or the Bicycle Empowerment Network (http://www.benbikes.org.za/).

SLICE SLICE OF OF LIFE LIFE
Be extra careful about cyclists Mark Twain was once quoted saying: “Get a bicycle. You will not regret it if you live.” Ask any cyclist and they will certainly be able to confirm this over and over again. There is one factor specifically that is certainly the greatest threat to bikers – motorists. Or before I generalise – some motorists. The Argus Cycle tour is held on 11 March which means every single participant is out and about on our roads, preparing for the big race. The City of Cape Town has this week urged motorists to exercise caution and common sense on the roads and this is something every motorist should take to heart. The safety and security spokesperson cautioned that traffic officers will be focusing on the behaviour of cyclists and motorists alike and fines will be issued where the law is broken. As cyclist numbers increase this time of year, so do accidents involving cyclists. Yes, it is not always the motorist that is at fault and yes, most of us have probably had experiences in which cyclists in groups drove next to each other instead of behind each other. Nonetheless, now is the time to be extra careful, extra patient and extra observant for cyclists on our roads.

Moenie bang wees nie, Ek is by jou, moenie bekommerd wees nie, Ek is jou God. Ek versterk jou, Ek help jou. Jesaja 41:10
We should all take pride in our areas We read with interest of the beach cleanup from Dolphin Beach to Bloubergstrand and thank everyone involved for trying to keep our beach clean for the enjoyment of all. Our vlei areas would benefit from the same cleanups. We go out on a regular basis with our sacks and collect all the rubbish thrown away on the vlei behind us and also two others fairly close. The variety of rubbish is fairly diverse and sometimes we are not able to remove larger items such as TVs, armchairs, etc. although these items usually disappear after a few
months. It is unfortunate that the recycling bags get taken and ripped and emptied onto the vlei areas. Why people seem to think it is a dumping ground just because there are no bins we cannot understand but how lovely it would be if others would take a bag and collect any rubbish near to them. It is not a lot to ask to keep our areas clean and tidy and for us all to take pride in where we live. Veronica and Barry Parklands
City sets national standard The City of Cape Town received their eighth unqualified audit in a row. This is an achievement not to be sneered at. Patricia de Lille, Cape Town’s executive mayor said this was achieved by a combination of sound financial management, leadership, rigorous monitoring and open, ethical and transparent government. The position of a government’s audit determines how well they handle their finances. Judging from this audit, many other provinces can learn from the city. The City of Johannesburg, for example. They received another qualified audit due to irregular billing procedures and irregular expenditure. The Mayor said such financial management allowed the city to provide services to all people of the city, but especially the poor. Is this not something that every single government in every single province in this country should be aiming for? And what best way to achieve that than to follow the example of the successful? Like De Lille said, such financial misman-
agement speaks to a deeper issue of neglecting the responsibility they bear when they serve in government. She stated that those who manage resources have to do so effectively to make sure every rand they spent was towards the public good. She is spot on, because it is after all, the public’s money that is spent. De Lille made it clear that supervising public money means acting as responsibly as possible so the public derives benefit from their resources. The City of Cape Town’s management style should be an example to other cities and provinces and they should use this to their best advantage. That being said, De Lille also stated that there is always room for improvement, indicating a good sense of government. If Cape Town can do it, the rest of the country’s provinces can do it. So can it be done in National Government. JB Email
As a hockey player I write to the City of Cape Town in absolute frustration and dismay about the fact that the Hartleyvale Astro field was not fit and available in order to host the SA Hockey Final against Great Britain on Saturday 12 February this year. Sadly the game venue was altered at the last moment due to some red tape it seems. The hockey was played in Stellenbosch with a small capacity for spectators away from the general public access. International hockey was last hosted in Cape Town in 2006 and many thousands of hockey enthusiasts – schoolchildren, students and adult players alike were looking forward to see this game. Hockey is a dynamic and growing sport in SA schools and all efforts should be made to encourage children to play sport. There is an official lame excuse about some red tape involved about guaranteeing the spectators’ safety at Hartleyvale. An international game was held at Hartleyvale Astro nine days ago with allegedly some 3 000 spectators. I personally played hockey at Hartleyvale Astro on Wednesday three days ago and there was no apparent danger to anyone. City of Cape Town, I believe knew of this scheduled international game about a year ago and should have been prepared. This should have been a showcase to demonstrate to the world how well Cape Town organises events. The city planners have disgraced themselves and Cape Town in front of an international sporting body and have let down thousands of hockey fans. This is not acceptable Cape Town it is simply not good enough. It is high time the people responsible are held accountable. MARK KENYON-SLADE Durbanville

Have a penguin, my love Lovers can give new meaning to the saying Lovebirds by giving a penguin as a Valentine’s gift. This Valentine’s Day one can adopt a pair of penguins for R500 and help the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (Sanccob) to save these precious creatures that mate for life. “So forget the chocolates this year and wow the love of your life with a universal symbol of true and lasting love and at the same time help to save these cute little guys that are in danger of becoming extinct,” says Sanccob’s Margaret Roestorf. “Visit www.sanccob.co.za and we’ll get
your special Valentine’s pack winging its way to you. This two for the price of one offer is valid until 29 February.” Sanccob is a leading marine-orientated non-profit organisation, which was established in 1968 and has treated more than 90 000 oiled, ill, injured or abandoned African penguins and other threatened seabirds since it started. Research confirms that the wild African population is 19 percent higher directly due to SANCCOB’s efforts. African penguins are classified as endangered on the IUCN Red Data List and saving every single individual helps towards reversing their decline.

Vrou lei brandweer ANDRÉ BAKKES
Die Goodwood-brandweerstasie se nuwe bevelvoerder, Mariette Retief (36), het al klaar diep spore in haar loopbaan van 14 jaar getrap. Tog, ten spyte van die feit dat sy een van die eerste vrouebevelvoerders in die WesKaap is, is haar hoogtepunt tot dusver dat sy ’n seuntjie ’n tweede kans op lewe gegee het. “In 2009 het ons ’n oproep ontvang oor ’n huis wat brand. Daar was mense in die huis vasgekeer. Omdat ek die kleinste was, moes ek toe deur die venster klim,” lag sy. Sy het ’n 11-jarige seun wat nie asemgehaal het nie, onder die bed gekry en hom dadelik uit die rookgevulde huis verwyder. Omdat Retief ook ’n intermediêre medikus is, het sy kunsmatige asemhaling toegepas en só die seun se lewe gered. “Hy haal vandag nog asem!” sê sy trots. Dit is blykbaar baie raar dat iemand ooit die geleentheid kry om iemand anders se lewe te red. Haar onlangse bevordering kan dus nie kers vashou met só ’n wonderwerk nie. Retief bly in Brackenfell en behalwe vir Goodwood, het sy al as ’n brandbestryder in Kuilsrivier en Durbanville gewerk. Sy het dus al waardevolle werk in die noordelike voorstede verrig. Toe sy begin het, was dit baie moeilik vir ’n vrou om in so ’n tipe loopbaan haar stempel af te druk, maar haar vurige passie het haar aangespoor om nooit moed op te gee nie. “Ek het altyd geweet ek wil gemeenskapswerk doen en ’n verskil maak, maar ek was nie honderd persent seker wat ek presies wil doen nie. Ek was ’n reservis in die brandweer vir twee jaar en het toe as reservis aansoek gedoen. In daardie tyd moes jy ’n klomp
keer aansoek doen, want die brandweer was nog nie heeltemal vrou-georïenteerd nie,” onthou sy. “Jy moet jouself bewys en vir niemand terugstaan nie!” Haar aansoeke het tot gevolg gehad dat sy die eerste vroulike brandbestryder by die Kuilsrivier-brandweer (toe bekend as Oostenberg) geword het. Net veertien jaar later is sy tot stasiebevelvoerder van Goodwood bevorder. In haar geval was daar dus niks wat in die pad van haar dryfkrag gestaan het nie. Sy sê juis met oortuiging dat sy eendag ’n uitvoerende direkteur of selfs ’n direkteur in die brandweer wil word. “Jy móét glo in jouself!” Daar sal egter nog baie water in die see (en Bar-One-sjokolades) vir Retief moet loop voor daardie dag aanbreek. “Bar-Ones?” lag sy oor die TV-advertensies wat brandweerlui alewig Bar Ones laat eet. “Nee, ons eet dit net as mense dit vir ons bring!” Retief het inspirerende woorde en raad vir jong meisies wat ook eendag miskien ’n brandbestryder wil word, as sy sê: “As jy fisiek en emosioneel sterk is en jy besluit dat jy dit sal maak werk, dan sal jy. Dit is ook beter om nie daaraan te dink as bloot ’n werk nie, maar wel as ’n loopbaan.” Sy sluit af om die publiek aan te spoor om veilig te bly en altyd versigtig te wees vir vuur. “Maak seker dat klein kinders nooit met sigaretaanstekers en vuurhoutjies speel nie. Dit gebeur gereeld dat dit die oorsaak van brande is. Onthou, jy is die ouer en jy moet verantwoordelikheid neem vir jou kinders.” Retief se ouers sal al te graag die erkenning vir hul dogter se sukses tot dusver wil kry, maar dit wat sy bereik het, hou eerder verband met haar ingesteldheid van “aanhouer wen”.

Tutu praises ‘many good people’ MARANA BRAND VAN HULSTEYN
Never again will parents bringing their children to Cape Town for cancer treatment have to sleep on the streets. The Out of Africa Children’s Foundation launched its second facility in Cape Town in four months – a children’s centre in Newlands which will accommodate six families while ensuring that their terminally ill children receive the best pre and post-operative care, Kim Ferroli-Highfield from Parow, founder and chief executive officer of Out of Africa, said. The first hospice for terminally ill children and their parents was opened in Parow in September last year. The Newlands hospice for children also offers accommodation for their parents – for free – and is situated at 115 Campground Road, in close proximity to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital and Groote Schuur. The opening event was attended by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and the City’s mayoral com-
mittee member for social and early childhood development, Beverley Cortje-Alcock, who delivered the keynote address. At the event, Tutu said: “She (Ferroli-Highfield) is a real powerhouse; quite extraordinary. There are so many good people doing good things in our society, it’s just that we seldom have the opportunity to read about them.” Ferroli-Highfield initiated the project as a result of her daughter who survived cancer 15 years ago. “When we were going through treatment we thought we were hard done by, until we started meeting other families who had to cope not only with the trauma of their sick children but also with not having decent places to stay or food to eat. “When I learned that a mother who had brought her child to Cape Town for treatment was living under a bridge and was brutally raped one day on her way from hospital, I just knew that I had to do something.” .

Dash honours still up for grabs Last week’s Primi Naish Downwind Dash was almost a carbon copy of the week before. A group of 37 stand up paddlers and 25 surfskiers lined up at the start hoping to make the best of the 23 to 33 knots of wind. The only difference was a little less swell and the wind blowing a bit more from the southeast. This allowed for an extremely smooth and fast first half of the run. The second half as always, provided a bit of a challenge with refraction off the coast making or breaking competitors’ time and positions. Off the beach, it was once again the young junior, Dylan Frick, who showed a clear pair of heels to the rest of the field but once out the back it was the experience of Peter Petersen that paid off. Petersen connected runs and got past Frick until about 7km into the run when Frick passed his senior competitor. The young man made a dash to the finish in a personal best time of 48min57s with Petersen in a close second (49min03s) which was also his best time. Last week’s winner, Ivan van Vuuren, had to settle for third. While the rest of the field compete on the faster 14’ boards, Greg Bertish (51min15s) did well to finished sixth on his 12’6 board as he prepares for the upcoming world championships. Brigette van Aswegen (57min05s) set the field alight finishing first among the women with the 13th

Sofie Rotobouille from France was second posting a personal best time of 1H01min55s. She was followed by Monika Wohlgemuth (1H06min45s) also posting a best time. Second Junior, Matthew van der Linden had a couple of falls which cost him a bit of time, but he still managed ninth overall in 52min49s. Ethan Koopmans also posted a personal best of 59min32s as third junior. In total there were 14 personal
best times set and four newcomers. This week’s result sees Ivan van Vuuren take the overall lead with 13,7 points, ahead of Dylan Frick with 16,4 points and Chris Bertish dropped points due to other commitments and is sitting in third with 20,8 points. We have five more weeks racing to go, so it’s all up for grabs! The single surfskis were dominated by the more experienced over 45 class with Mike Schwan handing the race to Boris Hales of Sunset Beach.
Schwann misjudged the last wave into the finish and was unceremoniously spilled out of his craft. Hales made full advantage of his ill fortune and took victory by 13 seconds in 38min40s. The doubles fleet also had a great battle on the water and were relishing in the fine downwind conditions with all of them finishing under the magical 40 minute mark. Nick van Zyl from Table View, teamed up with Mark Gevers to win in a time of 38min6s. The young guns in the singles

field just missed out on achieving the sub-40 minute times. Zaren Courtney (40min04s) managed to win this class with a narrow gap of six seconds over Andrew McPherson. Two surfski paddlers did not make it to the finish. Mark Voges had his left paddle blade snap off making further progress very difficult. First-timer Phil Noton came to his rescue and rafted their crafts together and eventually made it into Table View beach.
Luke takes Laguna race SA 2011 wave kiteboard champion Luke Mcillewee took the honours in last week’s Laguna Mall Kiteboard series. Race organisers were in two minds about whether to have the event in a slalom or racing format as the wind conditions seemed unpredictable. The afternoon decision to run the slalom discipline proved the right one as the speed of the southeasterly picked up to about 22 knots. A group of 29 kiteboards assembled at the starting line. Among them were four previous series winners. Greg Thijsse, former SA champion and two-time series winner, Peter Petersen, Colin Heckroodt and last year’s winner Oswald Smith were eager to get their nose out in front early on. Thijisse was out of the blocks first following closely by a huge fleet. In crowded motocross style the com-
petitors took the first corner with only limited space to follow the ideal line around the buoy. The mayhem saw Petersen tangle lines with his Airush teammate Tyler Ryan. Last year’s South African wave kiteboard champion Luke Mcillewee managed to get through a big lull where some riders got stuck and took over first place which he managed to maintain until the finish. In the second position was Thijsse and third Oswald Smith. Clinton Santillan took victory in the masters’ category. In the women’s class Iva Lopes took home her first win after beating Mareike Brase. Encouraging to see was the new talent taking part. Although the 13-yearold newcomer Simone Swanepoel did not manage to finish after arriving late for the start, she looked very promising.
Junior trials kicking off All junior football players who have their hearts set on playing for the Table View Football Club must attend the trials on Sunday 26 February. Trials for the u-7 to u-17 teams will kick off at 10:15. Although the club is not keen on trials for its junior members it is a requirement of the club to assess each and every junior player’s capabilities. “Trials should not be considered as a scary or nerve-wracking experience for the kids. They should think of them as more of an opportunity to give everyone a fair chance of being placed in their appropriate team,” explained the chairman of the junior division, John Santos. “As always, it is a case of attitude as much as it is about aptitude and our experienced coaches will hopefully uncover ‘new’ players who want to play the beautiful game and learn and develop their skills during their stay at TVFC,”
he added. All trials will be held at the club grounds. The A-team coaches will head the trials for each age group and will be communicating throughout the process with the other coaches in their respective age groups. Trials will take the format of full matches of 20 minutes as well as half matches and five-a-sides games. Players who cannot make the trial dates can still register as club members on 25 February. The trial schedule is: u-7 (10:15 to 11:15 on A-field), u-9 (10:15 to 11:15 on A-field), u-11 (10:15 to 11:15 on C-field), u-13 (10:15 to 11:15 on B-field), u-15 (11:30 to 12:30 on C-field), u-17 (11:30 to 12:30 on B-field). For more information or to volunteer as a coach, assistant-coach or referee contact the club on 021 557 6886 or contact John Santos (084 555 7741) or Timmy Hayward (083 625 2537).
