TEL: 044-533 3952 EAT PRAY LOVE Drama, Romance Based on a best-selling memoir, this is a woman's voyage of selfdiscovery. After marital problems and a failed affair, a woman decides to take time off to find herself and regain her balance. She plans to spend time in three different countries (Italy, India and Bali), rebuilding a side of herself in each. She has various adventures and meets some interesting people, all the while soaking up tons of local wisdom about life. Cast: Julia Roberts, Billy Crudup, Viola Davis, Javier Bardem, James Franco, Richard Jennings

LIEFLING Musical Liefling, die Movie was conceptualised in 2008 by Paul Krüger. Pre-production of the film started in 2009 and the movie is due to be released this summer, on 19 November 2010. It is a South African first on many levels. The first Afrikaans musical to hit the big screen in over 30 years, it also includes the cream of the crop of South African produc-

tion crew, artists and actors. The film was shot over a period of three months, its primary locations situated in and around Hartbeespoort Dam in the North Western Province.

Liefling, die Movie features 24 Afrikaans songs which have been adapted and finely honed by Johan Heystek and choreographer Raymond Theart. The song and dance explosion is directed by Brian Webber.

ALPHA AND OMEGA Animation Strictly for the kiddies, this is a road trip movie featuring two mismatched wolves. She's the daughter of the pack leader, while he is the class clown. They kidnapped and dumped in a remote nature park, where they are expected to breed. However they decide to return back to their own nature reserve instead, having assorted adventures along the way. And yes, slowly they grow closer to each other.

MAYORAL LEARNERS’ INCENTIVE INITIATIVE (Second presentation) “It is my intention as the Executive Mayor to initiate greater participation in the Education process of the youth by the Bitou Municipality. We have selected the High School learners from Grade 8 to Grade 12 and will recognise all forms of excellence and reward learners who achieve, each and every quarter.” These were the words of the Executive Mayor, Alderman Lulama Mvimbi at the second award function during morning assembly at Plettenberg Bay Secondary School in New Horizons on Monday, 8 November 2010, when presenting a Certificate of Merit and prizes to award winners. The primary objective of this initiative is to make available awards that will be presented each quarter to learners who have achieved in order to motivate others so as to increase the level of education performance within the Bitou local public High Schools. In consultation with the Principals of the three High Schools, criteria for the selection of learners was identified viz:- 1. ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE – academic performance; progress; neatness and general presentation of work; regular and careful homework preparation; commitment to Academic achievement. 2. CULTURAL AWARDS – positive contribution to the cultural ethos of the school; excellence in the fields of Art, Crafts, Drama, Music or Literature. 3. SPORT AWARDS - outstanding achievement on the school sports field; sportsmanship, comradeship, team spirit and leadership; responsibility and helpfulness in sport. 4. EXEMPLARY CONDUCT – to include all forms of exemplary conduct. Each school receives an allocation of funds to purchase up to 60 prizes each quarter. The schools select their criteria and learners who will receive the awards. Prizes may include calculators, dictionaries, books, pens, sports bags and any suitable educational item selected by the school. The Bitou Community Educational Trust assists with the general organisation and administration and handles all payments. The Policy for the project was adopted by the Bitou Local Municipality at an Ordinary meeting of Council held on Wednesday 29 September 2010 in terms of resolution C/1/136/09/10. There is great excitement on the day of the award presentation and reports filtering in from staff indicate increased competition among the learners. The Executive Mayor and his team will be visiting Wittedrift High School and Murray High School on 3 December for the presentation of their awards. The programme will run until June 2011 when it will be assessed by the schools and the office of the Executive Mayor. We wish to commend the Executive Mayor and Staff for this initiative and end with quotations from the policy document:“He who opens a school door, closes a prison” Victor Hugo “Who so neglects learning in his youth, loses the past and is dead for the future” Euripedes ROSEMARY MURRAY

I am a young person renting a two bedroom flat. Eskom electricity cost will rise 100% in the next three years. I wanted to get a pre paid meter so that I can manage my electricity consumption. The municipality said sorry, if you live in town no way. I asked why, and they said that the Municipality charges an additional amount levy on the electrical consumption that goes to the municipal rates account. So in real terms our electricity will probably cost 150% more in the next three years. The additional levy I pay on electricity in a rented flat, helps fund the rates of the rich property owners in Town. Is this fair? I then asked if the people in New Horizons, could they have pre paid meters. Yes they can, as they are previously disadvantaged community. What about the Councilor’s living in fancy houses, earning huge salaries and driving fancy cars. They can get pre paid meters. And their rates are funded by me. This is a blatant discrimination and grossly unfair. Everyone living in a rentable accommodation should have the right to a pre paid meter if they choose to. I feel no pain if the rich in Plett have to pay a bit more on their rates. What about the affordable houses we were promised?

I challenge the Municipality to reply to this. Do not hold your breath. Batho Pele.

Thank you Sterreweg. We were reminded again about the special gifts that children with challenges bring to a community on Saturday morning when die Sterreweg has their open day. There were lovely arts and craftes on display which the children made and parents shared about the special joy their less-abled children had brought into their lives This beautiful poem by Sr Toyisi sums it up so well… Who cares for bears like mother Bear herself ‘cause for him, the little bear she loves most dearly So sincerely A Mother knows indeed The need… As he grows, she looks upon and realizes, a chance is here… so near… to better life at Sterreweg, you surely can survive Like all other kids, we have the right to fun and play … no matter the difficulties … this way we get through life every single day!

Conservation Corner Why do humpback whales Sing ?

The first recording of the humpback whale song was made by the U.S. navy ships in the late 1950’s off Hawaii and Bermuda. However, it was not until the 1960’s that the songs were identified as coming from whales. Today, scientists use a device called a hydrophone (or underwater microphone) to record humpback whale songs so that we can learn more about their purpose and characteristics of the songs. There are multiple theories for the purpose of the whale songs. In general, researchers agree that only the males sing, and the songs are used for sexual selection. Whether it is to attract females, intimidate other males or both, is still unknown.

Bitou Business Buzz

END OF THE YEAR...Student Festival, previously referred to as Matric Rage, will start on Friday. In the past many fingers were pointed at the youngsters because of their boisterous and sometimes destructive behavior. In the last three years things have changed considerably hence the change of the name. Last year it was estimated that over ten thousand of them visited our town which needless to say translates into a sizeable bonus for our retail outlets much appreciated in these economical stressful times. Tourism once again is helping to co-ordinate the transport situation by identifying experienced licensed drivers and make certain that students can enjoy their various pleasures without the fear of being arrested for drunken driving or risking bodily harm. Residents of Bitou are asked to welcome them with open arms, be helpful to them and make their stay a memorable one. It is a fact that many of them have returned to Plett. over the years quite often with family and friends. My daughter, many years ago, brought twelve friends of hers to stay in our little three bedroom house. It was an experience not to be forgotten, what it is to be young! Greetings, Ald. Pierre Koep.

Letter via the Editor Our NGO was invited to a AGM of the Community Police Forum on Wednesday the 17th Nov. 2010 at 18:00 according the written invitation. We rush from Kranshoek at 17H45 to Kwanokuthula. When we arrive there, the hall was still closed. I open the door and find the hall is still empty. By that time it was 18:05. I was looking around and ask the people if any of the CPF Eco Members is around. When we went outside people was pitching up one by one. After 18:15 I went back to Kranshoek. Hereby I appeal to the CPF to stick to their time and forget African time. Thanks Member of Kranshoek NEED LAMINATING?

Letter via the Editor I am no longer a dog owner. But one of my greatest joys is to see other people’s dogs delighting in our beautiful beaches, revelling in what for some of them is their daily swim in the sea. Now I read that allowing our dogs to continue to do what many of them have been doing all their lives is to be subject to a R500 fine. This is tantamount to cruelty to animals. If they have to be kept on a leash they are no longer going to be able to swim. We wouldn’t do that to our children, and I can see no reason we should do this to our dogs. Yes of course dogs should only go on dog-permitting beaches and of course dog poo should be picked up. But why should they have to be on leashes? My observations are that the dogs on our beaches are beautifully behaved and their owners sensitive to their possible response to a new dog on the beach with leashes ready should there be a problem. Is this a case of a few complainers overriding the wishes of the vast majority of Plett residents? How many incidents have taken place because a dog is not on a leash? Please can this legislation be reversed? We want to continue to have the pleasure of seeing our dogs enjoying the freedom of our beaches. Yours sincerely, Wendy Brown

Letter via the Editor Dogs on Beaches I have a problem with the municipal law 191 we live near Robberg Beach and go to the beach no 9 almost everyday. I am often the only person on the beach. Recently obeying the law I left my dog at home and went for a swim. Lying on the beach I had my basket stolen from right next to me. This would never have happened if my dog had been with me. The paths leading to this beach are very desolate and lonely out of season (eg no 9) I find the folk who take their dogs to the beach are very careful about cleaning up and you very seldom see mess on the beach. We live in dangerous times and need our dogs to be free to protect us. In season when there are plenty of people around the big holiday houses are occupied it is quite a different matter. Jenny Hume

Letter via the Editor The Municipality and Dogs We read with interest and are in total agreement with ‘The dog owner’s’ letter published last week. Unfortunately we had no idea of this new (?) law and were walking our dogs in a quiet local street when a neigbour, who obviously did know about this law, reported us to the Municipality. The new Municipal Law enforcement officer, driving his smart new vehicle, arrived to fine us the sum of R500 on the spot We are just wondering: Are we, the residents of the traditionally more affluent suburbs, to be the only ones to be so treated?. We guess so. If not, the Municipality should make a fortune in no time at all should this imposition of this law be widespread throughout the whole municipality.

UnderCover Storage We had a lot of folk responding to and agreeing with Gareth Cliff’s letter to the Government which was on the helloplett website and in the What’s New in Plett . We thought you may also be interested in Gareth’s follow-up letter.....

Letter via the Editor from Gareth Cliff Next time you’re about to start bitching about government ask yourself whether you did something valuable for the country today. Not something for yourself; for the country. If you did you can complain. If you didn’t get off your butt and do something. Positive people in Africa are lining up to take advantage of one of the last unsaturated global markets, rich in material resources and potential. If you’re not interested in your country why should your country be interested in you?

Bowling Club News


Our Business League sponsored by FNB is progressing well. After 4 sessions Rocky Road are in the lead, followed closely by Village Bookshop, Amabolla and Plett Sports. There are two more sessions on 23rd and 30th November. We are holding a fun bowls day for club members and Business League players on Sunday 12th December, starting at 11h00. We will play 2 bowl trips and follow the bowls with a bring and braai for the whole family – the Club will provide salads and the fires. The entry fee is R20 per player. You can bring a team of 3 or come individually

We were invited to sample the Sushi and a complimentary cocktail at Kitchen Café by owners Sean, Cameron and Billy. The Sushi is a lovely addition to their menu which is designed to tantalize the senses. Passionate chefs handcraft superb dishes, inspired by the best of African, Asian and European Cuisine. The new sushi and cocktail menu is the perfect addition to our a la carte menu and award winning pizzas. The warm ambiance and sweeping views of the Bay provide the perfect setting for lunch, dinner or sunset cocktails. Kitchen Cafe | 044 533 3693 | Main Street | Plettenberg Bay

PAWS Report Back

Our recent street collection was a great success and you, the public, deserve a huge thank you from our organisation for your continued support and generosity. Many thanks to all of you who so generously and willingly gave to this worthy cause. We would also like to thank our collectors and (where appropriate!) their four-legged friends for their time and effort in being the ‘face’ of PAWS at the various venues. Your help is very much appreciated. The Traffic Department made a parking bay available to us, for which we thank them, as well as the various shops and offices where we were allowed to take up our positions. A big thank you to the Bitou Municipality for giving us permission to hold this street collection. The sum of R7,017.35 was raised and, as in the past, this money will be put to good use. As always, we need every cent we can get. Many people in Plett are under the misconception that PAWS benefits from funds collected by the CVC shop run by Heidi. All money collected by the CVC and its shop is used by them for the spaying/ neutering of the animals they bring in. The CVC continue to do fantastic work in this regard. At present PAWS pays for all the euthanasing, particularly where unwanted puppies/kittens are concerned, and as we at PAWS also work in all other fields of animal welfare, we continue to need your support. Together we can make a difference! The recently published By-laws have caused some confusion and we at PAWS are trying to put together a list of those by-laws that concern you and your animals. Once this has been done, we will publish a list of DO’s and DON’T’s in an attempt to make your lives and those of your pets easier. PADS ideal for the phone, shopping lists etc. Only R1each @ THE PRINT SHOP LOOKOUT CENTRE, CHURCH ST ENVIRON CREAM to save your skin.

Dear Sir/Madam Thank you for your super, informative, little booklet. You were the first I thought of to tell about my experience tonight. We went to a local restaurant this evening for dinner. We had a very nice meal there and a very pleasant and efficient waitress who has been serving us for at least 2 years. Unfortunately, the owner made things very unpleasant by shouting rude and unprofessional comments to the waitress, in front of us and all the other guests. She was extremely embarrassed and so were we. This unethical behaviour has happened before, which we find totally unacceptable and therefore will not be dining there again in a hurry. The question I would like to ask is, do employees know that they can report such verbal abuse to The Department of Labour. To the owner I would like to say. Look after your staff , you need them as much as they need you. Embarrassed Diner

Letter via the Editor Re: Plett's amazing disabled lifeguards. I would like to commend Plett’s disabled lifeguards for overcoming great odds and showing strong character. Even though they are disabled they still managed to qualify as lifeguards. I can only imagine the challenges they faced in this quest. In fact, some seem to have done so well in overcoming their disabilities that you wouldn’t even notice they are disabled. The only reason I know they are disabled is because they park in the disabled parking at Robberg 5.

(Protect Our People) With Season approaching I think it only fair to welcome and warn our guests over the next few weeks. Starting with a welcome to Our new Municipality Law Enforcement. This unit will be protecting all laws though concentrating on Municipal By-laws. They will act against Traffic laws as well as drunk in public, Urinating In public, to no alcohol on beaches or public places. They also handle Dog problems at houses and beaches. They have already started cleaning up the Taxi rank and it is visibly cleaner, Thank You. They will also be working hand in with the SAPS with Matric Rage and Season duties. I would then like to inform everyone that Plett has a Zero Tolerance Approach which means, Please don`t get upset over being taken on with the little things as they will often help combat the bigger things in their own way. Don`t drink and drive - use our local Taxi`s. Get a number and let them take you to your drinking spots and bring you home safely. It’s much cheaper than the night in Jail and the first offence without an accident +-R4000.00 fine or imprisonment. In the Crime Department the Police have made arrests for House-breaking and theft out of Motor vehicle. There is unfortunately still a lot of movement at night in Dune and the

Poortjies area. Please don’t make yourself a victim of crime. A reminder call if you see job seekers in your areas, any strange activities we can only help if we know about it. There is no such thing as bad information so please Call the Plett Police on Tel 044-5011908/9 for Emergency’s and with any strange activities.

Brief via die Redakteur Aan die ongemanierde man Vrydag die 29ste in die Parkeer area by Market Square. Dat daar nog sulke nare mense in Plett is gaan my verstand te bowe. Terwyl ek besig is om te braak en baie, baie siek oppad dokter toe was, beskuldig jy my vals en kryt my uit as a gemors oor ‘n blykbaar onsienbare merk aan jou motor. Jy sê sonder twyfel dat ek ‘n dronkgat is terwyl ek in my lewe nog nooit gedrink het nie. Weet jy dat ek vrydag-aand in die hospital deurgebring het terwyl jy seker vir al jou vriende smaaklik vertel het van die dronk no-good kleurling jong. Weet jy, as ek op daardie oomblik nie so swak was nie sou jy iets baie lelik ervaar het. Ek sou kon bewys het dat ek nie dronk was nie en kon jou vir miljoene ‘gesue’ het. Moenie mense sommer veroordeel nie.

PAWS Appeal

Robert Ruiters, our Inspector, recently found a small border collie cross in the Harkerville area and, as no one has claimed him, we are appealing for someone to either adopt him or foster him until his owner comes forward or a new home is found for this delightful animal. Please contact Robert on 0832879917 or Di Butlin on 0825692571. We are also desperate for people to come forward to foster both small and large dogs and cats until we can find new homes for them. These animals will, unfortunately, have to be put down should we be unable to rehome them and fostering buys us time to do this. Please help!
