) Controversial movie in the making
Euthanasia shocker DESIREÉ RORKE
Can the battle against pet overpopulation be won? This is the question an independent filmmaker Riaan Hendricks is doing his utmost to unravel with the movie Wild Dog – a movie the NSPCA would rather not have see the light of day. This film, which is still to be completed, is an eye-opener that turns the spotlight on the plight of hundreds of thousands of domesticated cats and dogs that are euthanised each year. Especially now, over the festive season when these numbers increase significantly. It is an observational documentary, which draws the viewer into the lives of the people struggling to stem the tide of unwanted animals and its impact on society. The film focuses on and plays off at the Helderberg Animal Welfare kennels where approximately 140 animals are euthanised each month – a conservative estimate according to Julia Evans, general manager at the organisation. This kennel serves only the Helderberg and surrounding area, and already cannot cope with the influx of unwanted animals. Sick animals or those with behaviour problems are put out first, to open up space for new animals coming in, and so the cycle continues. “We absolutely hate euthanasia, but we are chock-a-block – our kennels, foster care and adoption systems. We are left with no choice,” she
The public can no longer ignore the plight of the hundreds of thousands of unwanted cats and dogs facing eutha nasia each year.
says. According to Evans, the situation had reached crisis level years ago, and that something drastic needs to be done. Evans supports this movie, and hopes that it will bring the necessary awareness. Alarmingly, Evans and the Helderberg Animal Welfare, is the only organisation TygerBurger spoke to, willing to blow the lid off the euthanasia debacle. Both the AACL (Animal Anti-Cruelty League) and the SPCA in Cape Town, have declined to make public the number of animals euthanised by them. René Southwood, manager at the AACL, is of the opinion that these figures will make the public “angry” and that this kind of awareness won’t solve the problem either. Also, Sarah Scarth from the SPCA in Cape Town wishes not to release their euthanasia statistics, but does confirm that the number of stray animals admitted over the past few months has increased. “The numbers of strays admitted in November was up by 39 percent and this puts even more pressure on our kennels ... At this time of the year we also see the number of surrendered animals increase – animals handed over to our animal care centre by owners who no longer want them or can afford them. Christine Kuch, spokesperson of the NSPCA (National Council of SPCAs), slammed Hendricks and the film, saying that this kind of publicity will turn the public to pro-life (no-kill shelters), resulting in the SPCA losing financial benefactors. “We also question certain aspects of the film in legal terms,” she said, referring to Hendricks filming the animal inspector of Helderberg Animal
Welfare going to a house to pick up a sick dog. According to Kuch, the inspector in the film must be qualified, and must have the magisterial authority to come onto the property to remove the animal and that a minor is not allowed to be interviewed. Hendricks however confirmed that the girl in the film is 18 and that the particular animal owner contacted the Helderberg Animal Welfare and requested them to come and take their sick dog. “We worry about the impression this movie will give the public. It undermines our message,” she said, and says Hendricks must be careful not to get himself prosecuted. “The sad reality is that ‘any port in a storm’ is not an option. Finding someone to take an animal to avoid euthanising it, is irresponsible. Animal collectors are devious and many people are misguided when they take an animal, especially if they are told or have been led to believe that euthanasia might be imminent. This is emotional blackmail, impulse adopting and the long-term welfare of the animal is put at risk. It is inhumane to confine animals for long periods. “Stress results and this may lead to behavioural problems which may never be overcome – rendering the animal even less likely to be ‘adoptable’ or to settle in a home,” the NSPCA’s standard policy on euthanasia reads. Filmmaker Hendricks however disagrees with Kuch and still hopes that the NSPCA will support the movie. “What makes the story moving and engaging is the compassion with which such emotional demanding work is done.” He is now seeking public funding for the completion of the film via http://www.indiegogo.com/wilddog. .

Velodrome training cut JANA BEKKER
Sport clubs in Bellville, especially athletics and cycling, are extremely concerned over their future, as they will not be able to train at the Velodrome during its development over the coming years. A meeting to weigh up options and find a workable solution to accommodate athletics clubs and school athletics when the Bellville Velodrome will be developed from next year, was held at the stadium last week. A business and retail park, hotel, conference centre and residential units will be erected at the Velodrome in a R3 billion project. Alexander Dykes, District Six Manager of the City of Cape Town, said those attending the meeting will form a working group, with the purpose of finding alternative accommodation for athletic fixtures and practises when the stadium closes in 2012. TygerBurger reported on clubs’ concerns over having no alternative in August this year (“Geriewe bedreig – Sportklubs oor nuwe ontwikkeling”). Alternative space is also necessary for the
cycling club, as well as storage space for athletic equipment. One of the questions raised at the meeting was by Gert Engelbrecht, representative of the Bellville Athletic Club, who enquired about valid contracts that were in place between the cycling club and the City of Cape Town, but Alexander said all but one of the planned fixtures for next year have been allocated to other venues. “I am not sure about the Top 10 Championship,” he said. He said it was necessary to explore options to accommodate the cycling and athletics clubs, but that the athletic season ended around April and that most major events have been catered for around the country. “To my view the 2011 and 2012 season is done and dusted,” Alexander said. He said there are a number of running clubs (or tracks) in Cape Town, including Vygieskraal in Athlone, Wesfleur in Atlantis, Parow, Khayelitsha, Blue Downs, Kuils River and at UWC and CPUT. At Kuils River, Wesfleur and Parow however, there are no stands, while UWC is not un-
der the City’s control. Green Point Stadium will be completed next year March, according to James Evans of SA Athletics, who also attended the meeting. Travelling distances to alternative fields is a major concern for all the sport clubs, due to costs involved. Gert voiced his concern over a venue for 200 athletes to do pre-season training. He suggested the clubs still train at the Velodrome during the first phases of the project. “I have spoken to the developer and he said it would be possible for us to train there, as the tartan will only be laid over the last three months of the project,” Gert said. Freddie Prince, manager for District Sport and Recreation for the City of Cape Town said an audit of challenges will be done and the City will look for solutions. “If bookings protocol at other clubs are managed properly, half our problems will be solved,” he said. He said it was imperative that this group sat down to start plotting fixture lists. A follow-up meeting was scheduled for January 2011.
Top acts confirmed for ’Cause we Can! show Almost R1,5 million rand has been raised for charity with the yearly Want ons Kan/’Cause we Can! concert, taking place for the 10th time next year. TygerBurger is the media sponsor of this popular event where some of the country’s top musicians and vocalists perform free of charge. Some top acts have already confirmed their participation at the 2012 event, taking place on Sunday 29 July at the Bellville Civic Cen-
tre. They include Heinz Winkler, Emo Adams and Take Note, Brandon October, Adam, Alan Committie, Zanne Stapelberg and Broers. Charities that have benefited from the fundraising concert over the years include Meals on Wheels in Kraaifontein, Filia School, Badisa, Tehillah, Huis Jabes, Helping Angels and Rock a Bye Baby House. Charities that would like to become part of the event (and thus raise money for their or-
Mutts of the Week
ganisation) are invited to apply as a beneficiary. It will be expected of the chosen charities to sell tickets to the event, which usually is an easy task. To apply, send a letter of motivation containing background on the organisation, what you’re planning to do with the money should you be chosen and how you’re planning to sell tickets, to Hennie van Greunen via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

. From page 1. Hendricks hopes that once the film has been completed it will be used countrywide by communities and animal welfare organisations to make the public aware of the crisis and the importance of sterilisation. The fact that sterilisation is the only long-term solution is one thing all animal welfare organisations agree upon. Also, according to Tamsin Nel, CEO of SA Mass Animal Sterilisation Trust, sterilisation is financially more viable than euthanasia. Her research shows the cost of one female dog being sterilised coming to R431, compared with the cost of one rescued animal being euthanased coming to R572, after 10 days of kennelling. She came to the conclusion that mass euthanasia would be cheaper only in the short-term and only if kennelling is not required. “Mass sterilisation would be cheaper in the long run as it will prevent the births of up to 474 new dogs or cats over a two-year period, with only a single sterilisation,” she says. Hendricks invites the public to see the trailer of the film on http:// www.indiegogo.com/wilddog, to learn more about it. The website also has a trailer of the movie. “Those who like it and would like to help financially can do so or tell other people about the film,” he urges. Hendricks, who lives in Gordon’s Bay, won a Silver Dhow award earlier this year at the Zanzibar International Film Festival.
Bus tickets going up Golden Arrow Bus Services will be increasing its passenger fares by an average of 8 percent on Monday (26 December). The adjustment comes after all other options had been exhausted, and is the first increase since December last year. The average 8 percent applies to normal tickets, whilst pensioners will experience a 3,2 percent increase. Passengers using 10-ride clipcards can postpone paying the increased fares until Sunday 8 January and can do this by purchasing the clipcard before the change of price.

On Monday 17 October the Harley family in Delft lost everything when their home was destroyed by fire. Stranded, stressed and homeless, they approached local organisation Afrika Tikkun, based at the Mandela Peace Park, for help. Afrika Tikkun is an NGO that provides education, health and social services to children, youth and their families through centres of excellence in South African townships. Their aim is to empower communities to develop new generations of productive citizens. The management team listened to their plight and immediately sprang into action to assist the family. After the family was provided with debriefing and trauma counselling by a social worker, they then addressed the need for food security by providing the family with food parcels and daily feeding. Social worker Nolusindiso Mvandaba explained that for the immediate need of clothing, bedding and toiletries, the family was assisted with donations from their reaction unit. “Because Afrika Tikkun’s mission is to provide a holistic approach in addressing psycho-social needs of young people and their families in South African townships, our intervention did not end there. “We visited the home and saw the disaster that the fire had caused. The management team, led by Nasheema Ismail, then approached stakeholders in the community to assist with building material. “We would like to thank Sea Kay Engineering Services Western Cape, who are one of the companies building houses in N2 Gate-

Parents are being warned against buying hookah pipes for their children. This warning comes from dedicated antidrug campaigner in the community Dhakir Christians who feels that parents are sometimes unaware of the dangers of smoking these water pipes also known as oka pipes. “In recent times the smoking of these pipes has become popular among youth, and in many cases parents have been ignoring it because it seemed harmless,” he says. “The popularity of water pipes may be due in part to perceptions that they are safer than cigarettes. However, water pipe smoke contains nicotine, carbon monoxide, carcinogens and greater amounts of tar and heavy metals than cigarette smoke. “Research has found that those young adults who used water pipes were also more likely to use cigarettes, marijuana, illicit
drugs and alcohol. “Experts have warned that smoking these devices for one hour is as harmful as smoking up to 200 cigarettes in the same amount of time.” Christians also pointed out that the passing around of the pipe in a communal environment can also increase chances of spreading illnesses such as tuberculosis. Another alarming fact is that some parents are allowing their young children, sometimes as young as six years to smoke from these pipes. “Parents must be aware that these pipes have the potential to lead to dependence on nicotine, and can cause cancer. “Smoke from a single hookah session contains approximately 36 times the tar, 1,7 times the nicotine, and 8,3 times the carbon monoxide as that produced by one cigarette. “With these facts facing them I just hope that parents are aware,” he said.

TutuDesks welcomed Learning will be a little easier for children at Protea Primary in Bonteheuwel next year, with an innovative donation to the school. The school recently celebrated when they received a generous donation of 200 TutuDesks from Grant Thornton International. With over 90 million children in Africa without a writing surface at schools and over 400 million children worldwide, the TutuDesk Campaign aims to provide disadvantaged schools with instant infrastructure provision for children, in the form of flat structures to rest on scholars’ laps. The TutuDesks also provide a far greater reach in a shorter time for funds invested by donors. Without a writing surface, students will be compromised at their places of learning. The 200 desks donated to the school forms part of Grant Thornton’s focus of promoting education within underprivileged areas. Funds were raised at Grant Thornton International’s 2010 conference which was attended by over 500 partners and staff from around the world, who all donated generously to the CSI element of the proceedings. The company is the fifth largest audit firm in South Africa by fee income.
In the next five years, the campaign will endeavour to provide a further 20 million desks to significantly improve learning conditions for children in Africa. The 200 desks were handed over to the staff and pupils of the school just before the holidays. Neil Miller, joint managing partner of Grant Thornton Cape said: “We at Grant Thornton believe that the upliftment of communities starts with education. We are committed to showing our unyielding support in promoting education within underprivileged communities.” Miller concluded the handover by adding that the company has more donations in the pipeline, which further substantiates its commitment to supporting education in underprivileged areas on an ongoing basis. The Protea Primary School’s staff were exceptionally grateful to receive such indispensable teaching tools and said that this donation would encourage the school’s pupils to do their school work in the classroom as well as at home.
Learners from Protea Primary School in Bonteheuwel are overjoyed as they try out the new desks.
Standing from left are, Larry Auret, Belinda Clarke, Marian Smuts and Neil Miller from Grant Thornton Cape who handed over the 200 TutuDesks to the staff and scholars of Protea Primary School.

PenBev gives kids an early Christmas A local cold-drink company brought some early Christmas cheer to a children’s shelter this month. The sound of wrapping paper tearing, excited chatter and giggles of youngsters filled the corridors of Tehillah House in Elsies River on Saturday 10 December when staff of the Peninsula Beverage Company (PenBev) and members of a local church visited the facility with gifts for the children. Tehillah not only provides a safe haven for these children but is also a rehabilitation centre for the parents and people from the Elsies River and Ravensmead areas who are addicted to drugs. The majority of these children have been traumatised by domestic violence and have had to deal with incredible challenges in their young lives. Chief executive officer of the facility, Sister Magda Kleyn, who has spearheaded the initiative for 16 years said that it was heart-warming to see the children’s smiles and to know that sponsors such as PenBev and the Cape Town Church of Christ, spared a thought for the children this season, so that each child could receive a toy. “Without the generous support of all our sponsors we would not have been able to do the work we do in the community,” she says. “When we started Tehillah the building was just a shell, but through a lot of hard work and support from corporate organisations that opened their hearts to us, we have been able to build and grow Tehillah to what it is today. “I come from Elsies River and it is incredibly important for me to invest back into the community. People need to know that they have choices and are able to get out of their
situations and to prosper even if they are living in an impoverished area or shelter.” When it comes to Tehillah’s drug rehabilitation programme, James Louw, Deputy CEO of Tehillah House explained that unlike other institutions, they don’t separate the children from the parents. “During the day when the parents undergo treatment, they are also taught parenting skills, and at night they are reunited with their children. “We act as a watchdog, looking after the children and making sure that the parents take responsibility for them as part of their rehabilitation. “Not only do we provide support for drug rehabilitation, we also provide permanent residence for women, children, men and the elderly who are either homeless or abused. ‘We also provide healthcare for the frail and provide food for 600 to 800 impoverished people in the area daily.” Stuart McLeod, managing director of Peninsula Beverage Company said: “We are delighted to be part of this initiative and to see the joy on the children’s faces as they opened their presents. We challenge more corporate organisations to get involved in this incredibly worthy cause.” Kleyn concluded by adding that they have their sights set on duplicating the Tehillah House model in every province within the next six years. “So far we have established centres in Johannesburg as well as the Northern Cape.” For more information about Tehillah Community Centre visit www.tehillah.za.org or for more information on the projects that PenBev are involved with, please visit www.penbev.co.za.

Lidmate bemagtig om ‘oes in te samel’ Die teologiefakulteit van die Universiteit van die Vrystaat, in samewerking met Radio Tygerberg, bied in Februarie ’n tweejaar-sertifikaatkursus in teologie en bediening aan. Prof. Pieter Els, koördineerder van die kursus en deeltydse dosent by die universiteit, sê die meeste gemeentes besef deesdae “die oes is groot, maar die arbeiders min” (Matt 9:37) en dat die era aangebreek het waarin nie net pastore en predikante nie, maar ook gewone gemeentelede bemagtig moet word om hierdie “oes” te gaan insamel. Onder die gemeentelede val onder andere selleiers, Bybelstudie-leiers, beraders, kerkraadslede en kategete. Dit is met hierdie doel voor oë dat die fakulteit teologie (UV) in samewerking met Radio Tygerberg nou al vir sewe jaar ’n bekostigbare sertifikaatkursus in teologie en bediening aanbied. Die kursus beloop R500 per semester.

Safeguard your cash “During the festive season, it is a known fact that members of the public are in possession of greater amounts of cash due to annual bonuses,” says Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut from the Western Cape Police’s media centre. “Furthermore, savings are withdrawn and ‘stokvel’ (savings clubs) monies are divided among members. Factory and building staff are usually also paid their wages during this time of the year, and because it is normal to adopt the festive moods associated with the season, one can easily lose focus and neglect personal security, all aspects well known to the common criminal.” Traut warns the public to be vigilant at all times, and to protect their hard-earned money by applying basic security measures. “Be alert when leaving a bank, and ensure that you are not followed by being aware of your surroundings,” he says. People participating in “stokvels” are encouraged to exercise caution when handling large sums, and to make additional security arrangements. Contact your local police station if you need any assistance with advice on how to protect yourself in this regard. The following hints could be useful when making cash with-
drawals. At the ATM . Be alert and conscious of your surroundings when using the ATM. . Never give your card or PIN (Personal Identification Number) to anyone, for any reason. . Do not write your PIN on the card or anything that is kept with the card. . Do not insert your card until asked to do so by the ATM display
Traut warns the public to be vigilant at all ti mes, and to protect their hard earned mo ney by applying basic security measures. screen. . Never use an ATM with a blank screen and, if the ATM is obscured from view or poorly lit, leave immediately and find another ATM. . Stand close to the ATM and use your body and hand as a shield to make sure nobody sees you keying in your pin. . Also, make sure you keep your hand over the card slot to make sure nobody can swop or take your card. Never accept help from stran-
gers when using an ATM. . You should be wary of strangers asking for help. Criminals work in teams: one to distract you while the other steals your card or money. . If your card is retained (swallowed) by the ATM it is advisable to phone your bank toll-free stop card line immediately and stop your card. . Never allow a bystander to call the toll-free stop card line on your behalf – they could be tricking you into thinking your card has been stopped. . Guards are placed at ATMs to discourage criminal activities and therefore cannot help you with transactions. . If you need help, ask a bank official. . It is advisable to set a daily ATM withdrawal limit at your branch. Safety in the bank . When withdrawing large cash amounts make sure that you are escorted by one or two friends. . Do not accept help from strangers, rather ask the bank personnel. . Always ensure that there is an acceptable distance between you and other bank clients. When you are in a bank and the bank is being robbed, follow the orders of the robbers (do not confront the robbers by attempting to apprehend them).

Eskom to the rescue The Department of Social and Economic Development of Eskom donated a sum of R659 664 to the Sunflower Fund, towards education and awareness of blood disorders such as leukaemia. The Sunflower Fund is in dire need of funds in order to educate and recruit a viable source of wellinformed bone marrow stem cell donors, who are ethnically diverse, in an effort to save lives of patients who are in need of transplants when suffering from dreaded lifethreatening blood disorders like
leukaemia. The Sunflower Fund is a Section 21 company, established in 1999 in support of the SA Bone Marrow Registry. Their board comprises members with technical experience, human resources, legal services and healthcare professionals. “This donation will definitely highlight Eskom as a committed and respected roleplayer in the community,” said Thandi Nkonzo, social and economic development manager at the hand-over ceremony.

Calypso Cricket fun in the sun Batters and bowlers were doing their thing on the beaches of Cape Town last week as Calypso Cricket celebrated their 21st birthday. With schools out and summer here, cricket was topping the recreational agenda for over 3 000 children from different communities, who took part in the 21st annual Sporting Chance Calypso Cricket Festival, held on the Cape’s local beaches. This year, there was even more cause for celebration, as the festival that gives a summer splash to cricket, came of age, Now in its 21st year, the festival ran every day from Monday 12 December until Friday 16 December on Sunrise Beach near Muizenberg, Main Beach at The Strand and on Long Beach in Kommetjie. Borne from a desire to introduce large numbers of kids to cricket and bring together the various communities and cultures of South Africa, The Sporting Chance Calypso Cricket Festival was started by Brad Bing of youth sports develop-
ment agency Sporting Chance in 1990. The festival, in association with Virgin Active, I&J and Supersport Let’s Play, is an annual highlight for thousands of children who are bused in to the beach, from various communities in the Western Cape including Elsies River, Belhar, Langa, Manenberg and Ocean View, to pit their cricketing skills against one another. Aside from a trip to the beach for many children who would otherwise not have this kind of opportunity, the festival highlights Sporting Chance’s determination to encourage sport as a fixture in all children’s lives, irrespective of race, gender or social class and to create an uplifting environment to bring together various communities. “It is a fantastic achievement that Calypso Cricket is turning 21,” says Bing. “It means that we have exposed an entire generation of youngsters to the sport of cricket and the benefits of team work, as well as giving them a reward at the end of the aca-
demic year. “Every year we introduce new groups of children to the programme and their participation and excitement is gratifying as Calypso Cricket continues to be a highlight in their lives.” Dr Ivan Meyer, Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport in the Western Cape agreed and said: “Organisations like Sporting Chance are vital for the success of youth sport development. “A government has limited funding and stretches this as far as possible, but together with private enterprise and NGOs we can do so much more. “Calypso Cricket has surely become an annual highlight for so many of the Western Cape’s sporting youth, and I look forward to seeing them in action!” Over the past 21 years the festival has also been recognised as a vehicle for identifying young sporting talent, for fostering a love of cricket and sport in general and as an opportunity to provide a large number of children with a fun-filled holiday activity.

AND NOW IT’S PLAYTIME
School holiday programmes were in full swing last week with many community centres hosting programmes for children. At Kalksteenfontein Community Hall, there was more than fun and games as the children were also given fun ways to stay clean and healthy. Here they are taken through a fun game to teach them the importance of washing their hands. Photos: Gary van Dyk

Boek in Kerskous die ideale geskenk ’n Mens kan maklik ’n kind se Kerskous volstop met ’n goedkoop plastiese speelding (gemaak in China).

Sing nuwe jaar in met orkes Die Oude Libertas-amfiteater op Stellenbosch vier die einde van 2011 met ’n uitvoering deur die Belgiese konsertorkes, De Kompanje. Die orkes, wat onder die leiding van Joris Degeest staan, is in 1987 as ’n blaasorkes in Brussels gestig. Binne ’n paar jaar het die orkes se gewildheid só toegeneem dat strykers en houtblasers bygevoeg is sodat die orkes vandag uit 55 lede bestaan. De Kompanje is bekend vir die openlike geesdrif van die spelers en die interessante programme wat hulle aanbied. Die orkes het reeds verskeie toere buite België onderneem, tot so ver as Kanada. Dit is hulle eerste besoek aan Suid-Afrika. Vir die Oude Libertas het hulle spesiaal ’n program saamgestel van musiek wat wissel van goue treffers tot musiek uit blyspele. Die Suid-Afrikaanse sangeres Nadine gaan in verskeie nommers by die orkes aansluit en saam die nuwe jaar insing. Saam gaan hulle
die gehoor vermaak met liedere soos “River Deep Mountain High”, “Kaapse Draai”, “Don’t stop me now” en “Auld lang Syne”. Die dansvloer in die voorportaal sal “kook” ure voor die aftel na 2012. Die aand word gevul met musiek deur ’n verskeidenheid kunstenaars, piekniek en ’n vertoning van “Dinner for one” soos tradisie dit vra. Die uitvoering begin Saterdag 31 Desember om 20:15. Kaartjies wissel tussen R130 en R160. Bespreek by Computicket of 021 809 7473. Vir vier-gang-etes in die restaurant kan Yolandi gekontak word by 021 809 7473. Besprekings is noodsaaklik. . WEN! WEN!

TygerBurger salueer lesers Om mense se stories te vertel. Dít is hoekom die meeste joernaliste in die bedryf is. Om te praat vir dié wat nie altyd ’n stem het nie, om erkenning te gee waar dit verdien word en om die waghond van die gemeenskap te wees. Mense en hul stories is die kern van wat dié beroep elke liewe dag die moeite werd maak. Kerstyd is een van omgee en dankbaarheid, en vandag, met die laaste uitgawe van 2011 op straat, wil TygerBurger se personeel vir sy lesers dankie sê. Dankie dat ons julle stories kan vertel. Dankie dat julle jul harte en huise vir ons oopmaak en met ons deel wát julle raak en hóé dit julle raak. In die jaar wat verby is, het ons die voorreg gehad om te deel in julle lief en leed. Ons voel saam met dié wat bly is, raak hartseer saam met dié wat deur moeilike tye gaan en raak vies saam met dié wat verontreg word. Een ding wat soos ’n paal bo water staan, ongeag die omstandighede, is dat TygerBurger-lesers omgee-harte het. Dít is in die afgelope maand weer bewys. Oral is partytjies gehou vir minderbevoorregtes, pakkies uitgedeel aan dié wat andersins nie ’n Kerspakkie sou ontvang nie en donasies gemaak aan individue en organisasies wat hulle beywer om ander te help. Dit bewys net weer: TygerBurger-lesers se harte klop warm vir ander en dit is ’n voorreg om deel te wees van só ’n gemeenskap. Ons salueer julle.

Understand what ‘need’ really is
Daarom kan Hy ook dié wat deur Hom na God gaan, eens en vir altyd verlos. Hebreërs 7:25
Safety at city’s level crossings still lags According to news reports, MEC Carlisle sees the verdict against Mr Humphreys as “a victor for justice and road safety”. Well it’s all good and well for the MEC to be happy about the verdict. Yes, we should be happy as a country that the NPA starts taking a firmer line against those who kill and maim on the roads and yes, Mr Humphreys was irresponsible. However, I am wondering when MEC Carlisle is going to act on his responsibility and see that the City Of Cape Town closes the level crossings where many other people were either injured or killed. Shortly after the accident on 25 August 2010 all newspapers crucified PRASA/Metrorail, and Lucky Montana in particular, saying that there are not enough warning signs to make motorists stop at these crossing. To my surprise in August this year Mr Carlisle very proudly informed members of the community and the parents of some of the kids present at a memorial service, that they plan on closing eight level crossings including the Buttskop one. In fact he did it on behalf of Mayor De Lille in her absence, as all eight crossings are in the boundaries of the City of Cape Town. What he did not tell people is that they are getting pressure from PRASA as it is their
responsibility to ensure there is enough visible warning signs at these crossings as the roads belong to the City of Cape Town. I am asking myself how many more people are going to get killed, either through their own irresponsibility or that of the irresponsible taxi drivers, before the City of Cape Town and Mr Carlisle are going to act. The City failed these families when they failed to take steps earlier to close the crossing. The plans to close Fredericks Street and redirect traffic could have been done long ago. How come they have the money now? Maybe next time someone gets killed or injured at any of these level crossings Mr Carlisle and the mayor of Cape Town should be sued. Maybe they will start planning better. I don’t even want to talk about the hundreds of commuters who were stranded that day and either got to work or school late or did not get to their destination at all due to that accident of August 25th and many others before that. Mr MEC now is the time for you to do the right thing and try and prevent more such fatal incidents. You also have a responsibility to ensure that we are safe on the roads. WILLIE VAN ROOI Email
Move airshow away from pets, and us I live in the Milnerton area and each year I watch helplessly as my dogs are affected by the airshow. It is not only the weekend of the airshow, but also the days of practise prior to the event that I watch my dogs confused and disorientated by the loud engines of the jets passing over. A dog’s hearing is much more sensitive than that of the human ear. Aside from the obvious safety hazard of
having the airshow in a residential area – all the animals in the surrounding areas take strain. How is this any different from fireworks? Surely someone has the authority to move the airshow outside of residential areas? Or does this person not live nearby enough to suffer the inconvenience? NADENE THABET Email
My response to the letter by Michelle titled “Give to those who need help” in TygerBurger of 14 December: Michelle’s thinking about giving to the neediest only applies to government services. If we see government assistance going to those with some resources while the poor are not helped, then I agree we should protest. But if an individual or private company chooses to give a Christmas wish to a certain person, then we should respect their decision. A gift is not earned nor is it a person’s right to receive. A gift can be given to someone who has much or who has little – that’s the beauty of a gift. There is no means test for giving, and no gift-police to judge its validity. If you apply Michelle’s logic to all giftgiving, then none of us may give to our friends before we have made sure that all the more needy people have been given gifts first. Giving cannot, and never has been, only to those who are worse off. Rather giving is all about the giver wanting to bless someone else. My second response to Michelle is that I know that hearing the words “special needs child” doesn’t explain much. I didn’t understand fully until my own child was born with special needs. I didn’t understand how frightening and overwhelming it can be. Nor how physically tiring it can be with years of interrupted sleep. Nor how emotionally draining it can be when specialists aren’t even sure how to help your child. I didn’t know that therapies were so expensive and are needed every week. I didn’t know how demoralising it is to clean up vomit five times a day or to know that your child has thoughts but cannot express himself. I don’t judge you for not understanding, because parents of children with special needs talk mostly about the triumphs this is how we survive. I encourage you to spend a morning with the child who was the recipient of the gift you wrote about. You’ll leave with a sense of having been part of something intensely difficult, but also something precious, and may even wish that you had some extra rands to give them too. JACQUI Email

Come ‘catch’ their EP at Rock the River LOUISA STEYL
Fresh off the stage at Synergy, Woodstock Mafia are gearing up to take on Rock the River. Not bad for a band that only played their first gig in April this year. The band is made up of Joe Theron on vocals, Nick van Rensburg on guitar, Ryan Matthews on bass and Owen Ingarfield on drums. They have been playing together since January. Ryan describes the band’s music as “post grunge rock ’n roll” with influences from bands such as Foo Fighters and Incubus. When they started playing together, they did so with a goal, one they have already achieved. “Playing Synergy was a goal for the band from the very beginning,” Ryan says. Woodstock Mafia played the LMG stage and despite the heat, the band
enjoyed a good turnout and positive responses. “We worked really hard to get there,” Ryan says, adding that they also brought their own quirks to the stage, like a coolerbox filled with beers that they threw out to the Synergy crowd. “When you have the opportunity to play a festival, people want to remember you for something,” Ryan says. He points out that festivals give the band a lot of exposure in a short space of time. As opposed to Synergy, Ryan says Rock the River will expose Woodstock Mafia to a younger audience. He says the band expected an older audience, but their fastest growing fan base is between the ages of 18 and 25. He believes that for a young band, in terms of playing experience, exposure is extremely important.
Woodstock Mafia – gearing up for big things in 2012. Woodstock Mafia recently recorded their EP, which is available to buy at their gigs, but just like beer, the band likes to throw these out at their shows too. “Come to the gig, you might catch one,” Ryan says. The band hopes to release their
single early next year, before recording a music video. “Doing a single is so important for a band,” Ryan says, adding: “It’s an opportunity to capture an audience before you tour.” Woodstock Mafia is planning to do that in May, when they head to
Johannesburg and Pretoria. Eventually they hope to be up there once every two to three months. Ryan says festivals are also a really good place to build strong working relationships with other bands. “The community is really strong,” he says. “As a band we take our rehearsals very seriously,” Ryan points out. The band practises twice a week. They even got their name from their rehearsal venue, in Woodstock: “Owen chirped Woodstock Mafia” and the name, which refers to a collective of people, stuck. Ryan says each time they get on stage, they give it their all, and they promise that Rock the River will be no different.

Groot name skitter in somerreeks RAYNO SNYMAN
Die room van SA atletiek het Saterdag die laaste byeenkoms in die Geel Bladsye-somerreeks in Parow ondersteun. En dit was veral dié groot name in SA atletiek wat die belangstelling gaande gehad het. Khotso Makoena, VS: 7,92; Chris Harmse, HG: 71,66; Phillipa van der Merwe, 200 m: 24,75; Cindy Stewart, 60 m: 7,52; Engel Roscoe 150 m: 15,59, Sergio Mullins 15,70 en Christne Kalmer, met haar twee oorwinnings (3 000 en 1 000), het die toeskouers nie teleurgestel nie. ’n Hele rits Tygerbergers het die oomblik aangegryp en in die geselskap van die grotes ook hul kant gebring. Hendricks Wesley (TNLC) 200 m: 22,49; Bock Leroy (UWC) 300H: 37,69; Brent Stevens (UWK) en Antonio Alkana (BAK) in die 60 m en Sonja van der Merwe (TNLK), met ’n puik tweekuns (150 m en 300 m), was goed op stryk. Onder die juniors het Gerhard de Beer (AGN, 51,37) en Jan-Louw Kotze (P-Gim, 50,23) hul tweestryd in die diskus voortgesit. Morne Moolman (DFM) SG: 76.96 en Jean-Marie Senekal (Paarl) 300H: 43,05 het gewys hulle is reg vir groot dinge. Tiaan Mouton (BAK) 400 m: 52,29; Aslin Cloete (UWC) 400 m: 52,99; Anneline Gerstner (DFM) GS: 12,15; Jeremia Jelwana (UWC) 200 m: 23,17 en Zani Kruger (BAK) 1000 m: 2:58,55 het uitgeblink.

The American women’s softball team celebrate after their victory over Japan.
MO D DERD AM R O
The US, who were champions of the 2007 Junior Women’s World Championship, had a tough match against Japan, but eventually won when – in the fifth inning – Cheyanne Tarango hit a grandslam home run over the fence. Our sister newspaper People’s Post was the media partner of the JWWC. Japan kept composure and fought back but only managed to score one run, which led to the US being crowned champions again for the fourth time. It was not easy for the US in the play-offs, since they faced Japan on Friday and lost the game, sending Japan straight to the final. Japan was then the only undefeated team and the only team to have beaten the US. The champions then had to face Chinese Taipei on Saturday to stand a chance to be in the final, where they successfully beat Chinese Taipei 12-3. Chinese Taipei, who had also faced Australia in the play-offs on Friday, reduced the Aussies to tears when they were defeated 3-2, and in the end hopeful Chinese Taipei came third in the tournament, winning bronze for the second time. The rest of the teams who all made play-offs were Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, and China. Apart from experiencing joy and disappointment, players found it difficult saying goodbye as the tournament ended. Many friendships were formed, and Cape Town proved yet again how well they can host an international event. The closing ceremony was done in style, and guests were once again entertained – just as in the opening ceremony. Limited Edition, a group of drummers, showed off their talents to the crowd, to standing ovation. Beng Choo Low, International Softball Federation secretary general, thanked South Africans and the people of Cape Town for their outstanding support. He also praised Noore Nacerodien, head of the local organising committee, along with his team for making the ISF ninth JWWC Under-19 tournament a success.
