Virus steel ook hoop Deur Denise van Bergen Covid-19 is ‘n nare realiteit wat homself soos ‘n nat kombers om die aarde kom vou het. Of jy nou glo dat die coronavirus ‘n feit of ‘n klug is, almal word op een of ander wyse hierdeur geraak. Die sterftetal van mense wat dié pes opgetel het, is ontstellend. Elke dag staan iemand ‘n geliefde aan die dood af; elke week word nóg ‘n welbekende inwoner in ons midde begrawe. ‘n Mens se hart breek om dit te aanskou. Die gevaar waaraan ons blootgestel word, is egter veel meer kompleks as wat op die oog af lyk. Mense word nie net siek of sterf as gevolg van die virus wat hulle liggaamlik aftakel nie. Talle mense lei psigies, of geestelik, as gevolg van die omstandighede rondom die pandemie. Die vraag wat dus gevra moet word is of dieselfde klem gelê word op mense se geestesgesondheid in hierdie tyd as wat gefokus word op die fisiese gesondheidsimplikasies wat die coronavirus inhou (en hoe om onsself daarteen te beskerm). Suid-Afrikaners is nou al vir 17 ononderbroke maande onder streng gesondheids- en inperkingsregulasies, danksy Covid-19. Ongewone gedrag word al meer dikwels rondom ons opgemerk en kenners meen dat dinge erger mag raak indien mense wat geestelik uitgebrand voel nie hulp soek nie. Zelda Buitendag, ‘n kliniese sielkundige van Polokwane, sê dat hulle in praktyk veral ‘n toename sien in angsversteurings, soos

algemene angs, paniekaanvalle, obsessiewe en kompulsiewe versteurings. Verder, sê sy, word ‘n toename in depressie en trauma-gebaseerde toestande ondervind. Pastoor Andries van Heerden van die Emmanuel Christelike Kerk op Louis Trichardt stem saam dat die psigologiese toestand van ons mense baie verswak het as gevolg van die pandemie. Hy sê dat die konstante onsekerheid waarin miljoene Suid-Afrikaners tans van dag tot dag leef lei tot ‘n onnatuurlike mate van opgekropte stres, wat hy ‘latente spanning’ noem. “Die mens kan nie vir langer as drie maande onder soveel ononderbroke spanning leef nie,” meen van Heerden vanuit ‘n beradersoogpunt. Die gevolg hiervan, sê hy, is nie net gesondheidstoestande soos byvoorbeeld hartsiektes wat nou ál meer onder jonger mense ook begin voorkom nie, maar ook baie verskillende geestesafwykings. Woede-uitbarstings en vele ander gewelddadige optredes kan ook direk hieruit voortvloei. “Latente spanning lig al die verborge swakhede uit, soos byvoorbeeld drank- en/of dwelmmisbruik, onbehoorlike gedrag en selfs fisiese geweld teenoor ander,” sê hy. Hoe beskerm iemand homself dan teen die psigologiese implikasies wat verband hou met die pandemie? Hoe vind ‘n mens daardie balans om homself geestelik en emosioneel bo water te hou, maar terselfdertyd te deel met die realiteit van wat om ons aangaan? Van Heerden meen dat om steeds

dinge te doen wat jou laat ontspan belangrik is, soos om tyd aan jou stokperdjies (of wat jy ook al van hou om te doen) te bestee - of dit visvang, sport of legkaart-bou is. “Daar moet ‘n sin van normaliteit en hoop wees. Bespreek daardie vakansie of naweek-wegbreek,” sê hy. “Wanneer ons na iets uitsien, skep dit hoop, en hoop help ons om nie te degenereer in ons psige en emosionele kondisie nie.” Hy haal die woorde van Paulus, wat vele verdrukkings en vervolgings ondergaan het, aan: En nou bly geloof, hoop, liefde - hierdie drie; maar die grootste hiervan is die liefde (1 Korintiërs 13:13

AFR53). “Net geloof, liefde en hoop sal ons deur hierdie pandemie sien. Hou vas aan jou geloof, geniet dit wat jou gelukkig maak saam met jou geliefdes en moenie hoop verloor nie.” Buitendag sluit hier by hom aan met die volgende advies: * Ondersoek jou denkpatrone. Irrasionele/onrealistiese gedagtes kan soms lei tot baie negatiewe emosies. * Vind dinge wat

konstruktief bydra tot ‘n beter gemoedstoestand. Leer ‘n nuwe taal of kunsvorm aan, of verander die tuin. Probeer iets skeppend of kreatief doen. As jou hande besig is, is jou kop stil. Beoefen jou geloof en reik uit na mense in die gemeenskap, vriende en familie. * Gee aandag aan gesonde gewoontes, soos oefening, eetpatrone en slaappatrone. Neem medikasie waar nodig en moenie bestaande gesondheidsprobleme afskeep nie. * Kry hulp as jy nie die omstandighede of probleme kan hanteer nie. “Ons almal het soms hulp nodig. Ons bevind ons in abnormale omstandighede en ons probeer ons bes om dit te hanteer,” sê sy.

Ons Tuiste Ouetehuis in Louis Trichardt het op 1 September besluit om bietjie die Covid-19 winter sluimer slaap af te skud en hul Polka Dots & Stripes Roadhouse Lentedag te vier! “Baie dankie aan Martin en Joey Knoetze, Gerrie Voges en Johanna Eyssell vir die versiering. Dankie ook aan Joemien Meiring wat die wyn geskenk het,” het die tehuis se bestuurder Kittie de Bruin gesê. Sy het ook haar dank uitgespreek teenoor haar personeel Yolani, Sarie, Lossie, Cató en Roy vir die heerlike kos en ekstras. “Aan al die inwoners wat so mooi gelyk het en moeite gedoen het – julle was awesome!” het De Bruin gesê. Afgeneem is van die inwoners en tehuis se personeel op Lentedag. Voor, van links na regs, is Kittie de Bruin, Margot Girardin, Hettie Naude, Antoinette Venter en Joey Knoetze.

Fibre has arrived - but how much of it do you need? By Anton van Zyl The past year saw a flurry of activities from Internet service providers, with a number of them digging trenches and installing a fibre network in Louis Trichardt. Three of the companies have activated their fibre networks and are offering packages to mostly home users. This, of course, means that consumers now have a choice, but making a decision may not be that easy. A fibre connection has many advantages, but it also brings along new terminology and consumers are expected to understand the difference between a 10Mbps and a 100Mbps connection, with aspects such as “latency”, “ping rate” and upload and download speed suddenly being important. But does a consumer really need to go for the top-of-the-range option? To try and assist with the choices, we “simplified” the matter. We set three home scenarios, starting with a small family and ending with a household that functions as a small office. We then asked an IT expert as well as the service providers what they would recommend for each of these households. The packages currently on offer vary between a 20/20Mbps line for around R400 to a 100/100Mbps (100Mbps upload and 100Mbps download) line for almost R1 000 per month. Certain providers charge extra for installation and a router, whereas others provide this free of charge. All the packages offer unlimited Internet usage, meaning the packages are not capped based on the volume of data uploaded or downloaded. (Unlimited is not, however, completely “unlimited”, as the service providers have what is called “fair-usage policies” that allow them to throttle or prioritise Internet traffic.)

set connected to the Internet, uses roughly 5Mbps. “If only one or two semi-heavy devices are used, 10Mbps will be just fine. If more than two heavy devices will be used, get a 20Mbps line,” he advises. Pietman Otto, owner/manager of Letaba Wireless, agrees and says that even with multiple users, a 20Mbps line would be totally adequate. The same response was received from Vuma, another of the service providers. “With the 20Mbps speed, families will have access to uncapped and affordable high-speed Internet,” says Bongiwe Nzuza of Tribeca, the PR company that Vuma uses.

In our second scenario, the children have grown up and are using the Internet a lot more. The teenage boy is a serious gamer, and he does not want any lag. His sister spends weekends binge watching the top Netflix series, while mom and dad watch the odd movie and enjoy Skyping with the grandparents.

A growing family The heavy hitters

The first scenario is a small family of four people. The children are still young, and mom and dad use their cellphones to access the Internet, mostly to communicate on social-media sites. They have a Netflix account, and the children enjoy streaming the cartoon channel.

A small family

Petrus Meiring, an IT specialist living in the United Kingdom, reckons that one of the most common mistakes that people make is to think that they need a high-capacity line. Meiring knows the Soutpansberg area very well, having grown up here. For the past decade, he has been living in the UK where he assists businesses and individuals as an IT consultant. He starts off by warning that speed is not the overriding factor when deciding on what option to take. “Latency or ping is what you look at and is perhaps 10 times more important,” he says. (More about that later). Meiring explains that a “heavy device”, such as a television

The professionals

Letaba Wireless’s Pietman Otto reckons a 30 to 50Mbps connection would be better than a 20Mbps connection in the above scenario, “although you will very seldom use more than 20 to 30Mbps, let alone the full 50Mbps capacity”. “In my honest opinion I do not see most residential subscribers needing more than a 50Mbps connection. There are the exceptions, like gamers needing daily gaming updates (which are often large amounts of data) and customers uploading content to YouTube and TikTok that would benefit from a fast(er) connection. That is not to say that neither of those scenarios cannot work with a 50Mbps connection,” he explains. Meiring is even more conservative, saying that for most scenarios a 10/10Mbps connection will be fine. “It will definitely be fine if it is a 20/10 Mbps connection. Thus, it is obvious that more than 20Mbps is an overkill,” he says. Vuma recommends a 50Mbps connection, to be on the safe side. “It allows family members to binge watch their favourite shows, stream movies, and access the Internet simultaneously without having to worry about buffering and lost connections,” says Nzuza.

The heavy hitters The third scenario has the girl now being a full-time student doing online classes. Her brother has migrated and, apart from playing online games, he is also a “vlogger” (video blogger), regularly uploading videos to platforms such as YouTube and TikTok. As a result of the pandemic, mom and dad are working from home, making use of Zoom or Microsoft Teams to attend meetings. They also send and receive all documentation, which can often be quite big.

Vuma recommends a 100/100Mbps connection for these “heavy hitters”. “They can access HD-quality video chats with educators and tutors, download files of any size in a matter of seconds, and enjoy non-stop educational video streaming,” says Nzuza. Otto reckons even such a family does not necessarily need the top-of-the-range package. He provides an example of an overnight accommodation facility with a 100Mbps connection. In spite of a number of visitors linking in, the connection seldom averages more than 35Mbps. His second example is a school with a 200Mbps connection. “It is a private school with most teachers residing on campus and about 250+ boarders. Even with all those users constantly active, the connection occasionally breaches 100Mbps,” says Otto. Meiring agrees that even bigger families who use the Internet extensively may not need the more expensive and “faster” lines. He explains that numerous other factors affect the speed that connects users to the Internet.

Speed is the sum of many factors Meiring says that probably most cases when people complain about slow speeds, the problem lies within the local network of the user. “Ensure that all devices use healthy network cables,” he says. This means that good-quality cables (not wireless connections) must be used to connect television sets and personal computers, should speed be of the essence. The quality of the equipment used is also important. The router provided by the service provider may be sufficient but will not be comparable to a top-end router that costs 10 times more. “Any wireless connection will break your latency,” explains Meiring. Latency is the delay between a user’s action and a web application’s response to that action. In networking terms, this is often referred to as the total round-trip time that a data packet takes to travel. In a normal household, the main router may be linked to another wi-fi router (in another room). This router may not be configured correctly and quite a number of people may be linked to this router. If any part of the network is bad, that affects the other parts. Probably the most important decision to make, however, concerns the service provider. Residents in Louis Trichardt currently have a choice between three companies, with some others soon to follow. Meiring says that even though a fibre connection is a huge improvement on, for example a DSL connection, residents must do their homework before signing contracts.

Tannie Lettie het in haar 93 jaar diep spore getrap Deur Pétria de Vaal

Wyle tannie Lettie Mostert (93). Foto verskaf.

‘n Geliefde legende van die Soutpansberg, tannie Lettie Mostert, is op 2 September aan hartversaking in die ouderdom van 93 jaar oorlede. Haar kleinseun, Sybrand, het vir die laaste bykans 10 jaar na haar omgesien. Aangesien sy vir só lank in die onderwys was, is sy wel bekend. Natuurlik was haar man, Sybrand (oorlede op 31 Desember 1999), ook ‘n alombekende boer van die plaas Ashfield, wes van die dorp, waar hulle baie lank gewoon en geboer het. Aletta Susanna Mostert (née Van der Westhuizen) is op 29 Julie 1928 op Daniëlskuil in die Noord-Kaap as die jongste van 13 kinders gebore. “Lettie het haar Hoër Onderwysdiploma in 1948 aan die Potchefstroomse Onderwyskollege verwerf, met vakke soos Liggaamlike Opvoeding, Afrikaans en Geskiedenis.” Só onthou Ena Barlow (gebore Mostert), Lettie se

Tannie Lettie se geloof in God het verdiep deur die jare. Sy het ‘n begeerte vervul om gedurende die sewentigerjare Israel twee keer te besoek. Godsdiensonderrig het een van haar geliefde vakaanbiedings geword. Die foto is geneem tydens haar besoek aan Israel. Foto verskaf.

Hierdie week, 25 jaar gelede in die

Zoutpansberger

Hierdie week, 25 jaar gelede, het die hoofberig op die voorblad van die Zoutpansberger van 6 September 1996 gehandel oor ‘n boer van Musina en die Departement van Omgewingsake wat haaks was oor die aanhou van slange en skilpaaie op die plaas waar hy gewoon het. Lede van die Johannesburgse Dierebe­ skermingsvereniging, SAPD en Omgewing­ sake het op die plaas toegesak en 44 slange van verskillende spesies gekonfiskeer. ‘n Week vantevore het Omgewingsake 152 Luiperdskilpaaie van die plaas verwyder. Die boer is daarvan beskuldig dat hy die diere in onhigiëniese toestande aange­­ hou het. Die boer het later aan die Zoutpansberger gesê hy en sy familie melk reeds vir 40 jaar die slange vir mediese gebruik, met die nodige per­ mitte. Hy het ook verduidelik dat hulle die skilpaaie weens die droogte op hulle grasperk toegelaat het. Die boer het aangedui dat hy reeds twee jaar vantevore aansoek ge­ doen het om die skilpaaie aan te hou, maar dat hulle niks van Omgewingsake gehoor het nie. Hy het ook gerugte ontken dat hy die diere vanaf sy plaas uitvoer. Die boer het aangedui dat hy die saak verder in die hof sou beveg. In ander hoofnuus het die polisie steeds gesoek na die 33­jarige mnr. Gerhard Koen, eienaar van die Lamp Shop op Vivo, wat op 29 Augustus van daardie jaar laas gesien is.

Die polisie het later sy vierwielaangedrewe voertuig in die berge naby Mara gevind met verskeie .38­rewolwerskote in. ‘n Nota is in die voertuig se paneelkassie gevind waarin mnr. Koen gesê het hy gaan homself uit die gemeenskap verwyder. Ook hoofnuus daardie week was die gewaagde gewapende roof in Thohoyandou waartydens rowers met R226 000 op die vlug geslaan het. Ongeveer sewe gewapende mans het sekuriteitsbeamptes van Springbok Se­ kuriteit oorval en beroof. Die polisie het ook ‘n saak van poging tot moord geopen.

87-jarige skoonsuster wat in Windhoek woon. Hulle was ook al die jare baie goeie vriendinne. Ena vertel dat Lettie se eerste onderwyspos te Happy Rest Skoolplaas was. Met die uitfasering van die “skoolplaasstelsel” in 1952, is die Senior Schoemansdal Spesiale skool ingestel vir die onderrig van verstandelik gestremde kinders van die Pietersburg- en Waterberg-omgewing. Daarna het die skool verskeie baadjies gehad, onder meer dié van ‘n Nywerheidskool, Veldskool en tans die Schoemansdal Environmental Education Centre. “Met haar aankoms te Happy Rest het ‘n groot skok op haar gewag toe sy nie slegs liggaamlike opvoeding moes aanbied nie, maar boonop die Graad 1-klas moes behartig. Ten spyte daarvan dat sy geen opleiding hierin gehad het nie, het sy dit met haar kenmerkende wilskrag en leergierigheid en die hulp en ondersteuning van haar ouer kollega, ‘Meester’ Mostert, aangepak. Hy het later haar skoonvader geword. Sy het ontpop in ‘n uitstaande begeleier van klein kindertjies - ‘n belangstellingsveld en talent waarvan sy nie bewus was nie. Met haar kleurryke verbeelding is ‘n eerste skoolervaring uniek gemaak - met verwondering is daar na haar stories geluister,” sê Ena. Sy sê dat, met die verandering na ‘n spesiale skool, Lettie hierdie uitdaging ook aangegryp het. Sy het ‘n positiewe gesindheid ten opsigte van hierdie kinders se behoeftes by almal geweek. Sy het geglo dat daar in enige kind potensiaal is - dit moes net ontdek en ontwikkel word. Op 7 Oktober 1950 is Lettie en Sybrand Mostert in die NG Moedergemeente, Louis Trichardt, getroud. Sy het hom tydens haar koshuisverblyf op Happy Rest ontmoet. Hy was bekend in die omgewing vir sy pragtige perde en het nie die kans laat verbygaan om te spog wanneer hy skool toe gery het om “pos te gaan haal” nie. Terselfdertyd is die nuwe juffrou uitgekyk! Só het die boer haar oog gevang en het hul verhouding begin. “Ná haar troue het sy voortgegaan met onderwys op Happy Rest. Kinders CB, Brandtie (reeds 19 jaar gelede oorlede) en Sulette het die gesin voltooi. Hierna hou sy skool by Laerskool Louis Trichardt en daarna by Hoërskool Louis Trichardt. Sy beklee ‘n senior onderwyspos vir ‘n hele aantal jare, tot met haar aftrede in 1985,” vertel Ena. In hierdie tyd het sy ook op gepaste wyse erkenning van die destydse Transvaalse Onderwysdepartement ontvang - veral vir haar bydrae tot die huishoudkundige vakgebied. Kleinseun Sybrand voeg by dat sy ouma en van haar leerlinge dikwels naaldwerkpryse losgeslaan het. Huldeblyke van oud-leerlinge stroom in. Alet Potgieter onthou: “Tant Let het ook huishoudkunde gegee en het die ekstra myl saam met haar leerlinge gestap. Sy het ons aangespoor en gemotiveer om hoë standaard werk te lewer.” Hans Schouwstra skryf op Facebook dat, hoewel hulle as seuns nie by haar klas gehad het nie, almal haar geken het. “Met haar glimlag en wie sy was het sy baie mense se lewens aangeraak,” skryf Hans. Jacs van Rooy beskryf haar as ‘n “geliefde legende”. As sportvrou van formaat het sy uitgeblink in atletiek, tennis en swem en was op kollege al deel van die eerste korfbal- en jukskeispanne. Sy het baie kinders leer swem. Kleinseun Sybrand het op briewe afgekom waar die munisipaliteit haar toestemming gee en swemlestye bevestig wanneer sy die dorp se swembad vir hierdie doel wou gebruik. Lettie se dogter Sulette Roux vertel dat sy hekkies geoefen het deur oor doringdrade te spring. Op dié manier het sy haar kuitspier geskeur toe sy aan ‘n doringdraad vasgehaak het. Sulette se broer CB deel dat sy ma uit ‘n familie kom wat mekaar altyd poetse gebak het. “Sy was ‘n regte grapjas. Een keer het sy ‘n ou klapperhaarjas met ‘n beer se kop (wat ek in Standerd 4 in ‘n skoolkonsert moes dra in my rol as teddiebeer) aangetrek. Hiermee het sy die tuinwerker teen skemeraand die skrik op die lyf gejaag toe hy ‘n kraan moes toedraai. Hy het sommer bo-oor ‘n hekkie gespring in plaas daarvan om dit oop te maak!” deel CB skertsend. Lettie het ‘n wye belangstelling en aanleg gehad in alle vorme van kunstige handwerk. Sy het boonop groen vingers gehad en haar tuin op die plaas en later in die dorp was altyd ‘n lushof. “Wederhelf Sybrand het altyd, al was water skaars, gesorg dat sy water vir haar tuin kon hê! Dit was haar terapie, het sy altyd vir my gefluister,” noem Ena. Sybrand vertel trots dat sy ouma ‘n jarelange lid van Louis Trichardt se blommeklub was en het gereeld blommerangskikkings vir troues in die kontrei gedoen. Ena vervolg dat, gedurende die jare wat die

Soutpansberg bittere droogtes ondervind het, Lettie swaarkry leer ken het. Met haar natuurlike optimisme en vele vaardighede het sy bygedra om die lewe draaglik en mooi te maak. Benewens al haar verpligtinge, het Lettie ook haar skoonmoeder versorg tot aan die einde van haar leeftyd. Haar geloof in God het verdiep deur die jare. Sy het ‘n begeerte vervul om gedurende die sewentigerjare Israel twee keer te besoek. Godsdiensonderrig het een van haar geliefde vakaanbiedings geword. CB onthou dat sy ‘n ongelooflike sterk geloofsmens was. “Sy was vir almal ‘n inspirasie as dit by geloof kom. Hoe moeilik dit ook al gegaan het, sy het bly glo. Sy het ‘n ryk en vol lewe gehad,” sê CB. Tannie Lettie het, soos die jare verloop het, al hoe meer betrokke geraak by mense in nood. Sy het die kuns verstaan om uit te reik en hoop te gee aan diegene wat hoop verloor het. Sybrand vertel dat sy ook ‘n lid van die Hospitaalraad vir die Louis Trichardt Gedenkhospitaal tussen 1991 en 1994 was. Juliana Kruger skryf: “Lettie Mostert was een van my beste vriendinne sedert ek in 1979 in Louis Trichardt begin skoolhou het. Voordat ek in 2018/19 daar weggetrek het, het ek haar weekliks besoek en haar onblusbare gees geniet. Hoeveel sakke sout het ons nie saam opgeëet nie! Dit was ‘n voorreg om my te verkneukel in al haar staaltjies en haar só al hoe beter te leer ken - van haar swaarkrydae as jong onderwyseressie af. Saam het ons die strate van Louis Trichardt deurkruis om vir die skool en later die handwerkklasse by Kutama-Sinthumule te kollekteer. Niemand het ooit vir haar ‘nee’ gesê nie. Ek sien haar nou by die voete van Jesus, die grootste liefde in haar lewe, nog steeds besig om laggies te ontlok. Rus sag in jou volmaakte, pynlose staat, Lettie!” Lettie wou altyd hê dat sy (Juliana) ‘n boek oor haar (Lettie) se lewe skryf. “Vir so ‘n monumentale werk het ek nie kans gesien nie!” sê Juliana. Johan Kirsten bring ook hulde: “Daar is min mense wat die lewe met soveel passie en oorgawe leef as wat Tannie Let Mostert in haar 93 jaar op aarde gedoen het.” Hy vervolg deur te noem dat, behalwe vir onderwyseres en boervrou wees, sy ook self geboer het. “Sy was ma van CB en Brandtie – opsigself ‘n voltydse werk - en Sulette. Sy was ‘n mentor met ‘n hart vol liefde – veral vir jongmense. Dit was my voorreg om van kleins af by die Mosterts op Ashfield te kuier. In die vroeë 2000’s het Tannie Let dikwels saam met my Pretoria toe en terug gery. Sy het ‘n uitgebreide algemene kennis gehad, maar dit was nie lank voor sy enige gesprek na die Here toe gedraai het nie. As sy enigsins getwyfel het of jy Hom ken, het sy jou van Hom vertel en van haar pad saam met Hom. Menige munisipale amptenaar het hom/haar misgis as hy/sy gedink het Tannie Let is net daar om ‘n lisensie te hernu of ‘n rekening te betaal. As jy ‘n woordjie wou inkry in hierdie gesprekke, sou jy mooi moes mik, want sy het nie lank gevat om asem te skep nie,” vertel Johan. “Ons is baie dank verskuldig aan Sybrand wat sy ouma met soveel liefde en deernis opgepas het. Ons gaan haar baie mis,” sluit Johan af. Lettie Mostert laat vir CB Mostert (seun), Sybrand Mostert (kleinseun), Bossie Mostert (kleinseun), DJ Mostert (agterkleinseun), Alnette Schramm (kleindogter), Marius Schramm (agterkleinseun), Erich Schramm (agterkleinseun), Sulette Roux (dogter), Barry Roux (kleinseun) en Albert Roux (kleinseun) agter. Die begrafnis vind Vrydagoggend, 10 September, om 10:00 plaas vanuit die NG Moedergemeente.

ZOUTPANSBERGER, 10 SEPTEMBER 2021

Unieke erkenning van TLU SA aan vroue-landbouer Landbounuus ‘n Unieke eer het plaaslike TLU SA-lid Erika Helm van die Bo-Brakrivier Boerevereniging (Vivo) te beurt geval, toe sy die organisasie se Nico Killian-trofee ontvang het as Landboupersoonlikheid van die Jaar. Die toekenning is aan haar gemaak tydens die TLU SA se jaarlikse kongres wat virtueel op 1 September gehou is. Hierdie trofee word vanaf die TLU SA bestuur gegee aan ‘n persoon wat hulle voel ‘n verskil gemaak het deur die jaar, op grond van voortreflike dienste gelewer. Die persoon moet ‘n lid van georganiseerde landbou wees en hulself beywer om georganiseerde landbou te bevorder. Vir dié doel is gekyk na die persoon se betrokkenheid by georganiseerde landbou vir die periode tussen 1 Mei verlede jaar en 30 April vanjaar. “Die Vivo en Waterpoort boere is baie trots op die toekenning wat Erika ontvang het,” het Japie van der Goot, voorsitter van Bo-Brak Boerevereniging, gesê. Sy woorde van gelukwensing is

Mari groet die onderwys ná 41 jaar Regs: Laerskool Louis Trichardt het op 31 Augustus afskeid geneem van me. Mari Röhm - ‘n onderwyseres, tennisafrigter, atleet, kostuumontwerper en lojale kollega vir talle. Sy het haar onderwysloopbaan in Jagersfontein in 1979 begin en in 1982 na Laerskool Louis Trichardt gekom waar sy 41 jaar onderwys gegee het. Sy is gegroet in eg Triegie-tradisie: ‘n Klokseremonie en afskeidswoorde van skoolhoof me. Irene. Adendorff en ‘n jarelange vriendin en kollega, me. Sussa Ehlers. Foto verskaf.

beaam deur Fanie Havinga, voorsitter van die Soutpansberg Distrikslandbou-unie, ook by TLU SA geaffilieer. “Erika se rol in die dag-tot-dag bestuur van Bo-Brakrivier Boerevereniging is om daardie sleurwerk soos skakeling met die plaaslike owerhede, skakeling met SANRAL en Limpopo se Departement van Openbare Werke oor paaie, Eskom aangeleenthede, arbeidskwessies, munisipale belastings en vele ander sake uit die landbouer se hand te neem, sodat daardie landbouer op sy taak, naamlik voedselverbouing, kan konsentreer. Erika voer hierdie take met lof uit. Sy is ook die voorsitster van TLU SA se staande komitee oor Plaaslike Regering,” het Van der Goot gesê. “Daar is soveel struikelblokke op elke boer en landbouer se pad. Waar hierdie struikelblokke met my gedeel word, is dit my uitgangspunt om dit te oorbrug of uit die weg te ruim, sodat ons landbouers kan konsentreer op dit wat saak maak, om hulle Godgegewe gawes optimaal te kan benut en kos op die tafel van elke inwoner

van die land te sit,” het Helm ná ontvangs van die trofee aan die Zoutpansberger gesê. Erika het gesê dat dit werklik ‘n riem onder die hart is as die pad wat gestap word vir landbouers ‘n verskil maak aan elke persoon daar buite wat deur die jaar aangeraak is. “Dit is vir my nie net ‘n erkenning nie, maar ook ‘n beoordeling van wat ervaar word en ek bedank elke persoon wat die verskil kon ervaar en positiewe uitkoms kon kry. Die erkenning is vir my ‘n aansporing om te bewys dat daar waardering is, en dit gee mens ook die moed om voort te gaan en vol te hou, ten spyte van watter omstandighede ook al op ‘n mens se pad kom,” het Helm gesê. Behalwe vir haar werk by die boerevereniging is Erika ook betrokke by haar man Willem se boerdery en ma van drie kinders, waarvan een op universiteit in Potchefstroom besonder goed presteer. Die baba in die huis is by PHS op skool en ouboet, ‘n volledig gekwalifiseerde elektrisiën, help met die boerdery en ander werk.

The directors and members of the Makhado Care Group in Louis Trichardt have reason to smile as they received an extremely welcome donation of R110 000 from the Rotary Club of Louis Trichardt on Friday, 27 August. Receiving the donation on behalf of the care group was Dr Casper Venter. Venter said that they were truly grateful for the community’s support, without which they would not have been able to do their work. Pictured from left to right are Rotarians Johan Gilfillan, Dr Casper Venter, Leon Barnard (Louis Trichardt Rotary Club president), Frank Terrink and Marius Gilfillan. Photo supplied.

photo-Novel competition Lungani’s trouble with Time.

*sigh* Another day and another physics lesson. Mr Mafela is teaching the concept of “Time” and well here’s how it went. LIES!

a story by:

So guys as we all know time moves at a constant rate…

nyandano Ramushweu

Featuring Ridgeway College matric group.

ok, Why do you believe this concept is untrue Lungani?

There are some situations where time acts funny sir, I can give you one…no two! Examples where time moves differently.

First Example: And I’m sure I’m not the only one who has experienced this.

alarm rings

Ok Lungani give us those two examples. 06:50 That means I have 10 more minutes of sleep.

Example 2: EVERY, and I mean EVERY student, will relate to this.

how is this possible!

8:30

Wow! This maths lesson is taking ages to end. Its 10:30, The lesson ends at 11:00

*Wakes up moments later*

A 10 minute nap wouldn’t hurt.

How is this even possible? it’s 10:20

Nyandano knows how to entertain Our photo-novel competition is quickly heading towards an end, with only two more editions to go. The last few weeks saw a flurry of entries and it was absolutely amazing to see what our local creative geniuses came up with. This weeks’ winner is Nyandano Ramushweu, a young man with such an abundance of talent that it is almost scary. This matriculant from Ridgeway College knows how to entertain and he clearly has an excellent sense of humour. We again received some entries that break away from humour and the stories address

problematic issues in society, such as domestic violence and even ritual murders. It is encouraging to see that our young readers are not shying away from such issues and are willing to address these through story telling. Whether the audience is always ready for this creative freedom, is another question. Be as it may, please send in the stories. Remember that the judges will take into consideration the market that the series is aimed at. The aim is not to drive controversy, but to entertain. Avoid topics such as religion and

politics (and lately even whether to vaccinate or not to vaccinate)

How to enter All you need to enter is an interesting story that must be told within the limitations of 12 photos. You can use a cellphone to take the photos or an expensive camera, it doesn’t matter. Use your own actors, but remember to get their permission. The photos will be used in black-and-white, so take that in consideration (get a decent contrast). Send your 12 photos, along with the

twelve “bullets” (descriptions) to leigh@zoutnet. co.za. Entries not used simply stand over to the next week, where it will again compete against the other unpublished photo-novels (and the team’s contribution). This means that the sooner you enter your photo-novel, the better chance it has to be used. After the final date (24 September 2021), we will choose an overall winner. The overall winner will win an additional R1 000. The competition is open to all residents of the Vhembe district. Entry forms can be downloaded from the Zoutpansberger’s website: www. zoutpansberger.co.za/comic

Support for Farmer’s Market and Mutt Mile overwhelming Animal Welfare

The SPCA Louis Trichardt’s fifth annual Mutt Mile on Saturday attracted a record number of entries, totalling just more than 80. Photo supplied.

“What a way to kick off spring!” remarked members of the SPCA Louis Trichardt, following an impressive turn-out for their fifth annual Mutt Mile, which coincided with their Spring Farmer’s Market on Saturday, 4 September. “It was our BIGGEST Mutt Mile and Farmer’s Market to date! What incredible support from our community, and we’re quite sure everyone enjoyed it as much as we did!” said the SPCA’s Alicia Thomas. According to Alicia, they had more than 80 entries for this year’s race and they soon realized that they did not have enough medals. They were, however, able to get more medals made in record time and delivered before the runners crossed the finish line. Alicia thanked each and every person who

supported their farmer’s market, as well as everyone who had booked a stall. “There was some stunning goods, gorgeous plants and delicious food for sale and I’m sure no one was disappointed with their purchases. Make sure you don’t miss our next farmer’s market on 2 October,” said Alicia. The winners of the Mutt Mile were Armand Roets (1st junior 5km), Thys Badenhorst (1st senior 5km), Anika Badenhorst and dog Jakie (1st in the Mutt Mile), Elouise Krügel and Blue (best dressed award) and Lynette Ramolepo (determination award) Alicia thanked all their sponsors and volunteers who helped make the day a success. “We truly appreciate your continued support!” said Alicia. Those wishing to book a stall for the next farmer’s market can do so by phoning Alicia at Tel 084 900 5332.

Apart from the biggest ever turn-out for the Mutt Mile, the SPCA Louis Trichardt’s Spring Farmer’s Market was also one of the biggest ever. Their next market will take place on Saturday, 2 October. Photo supplied.

erdraagsaamheid teenoor ander is daardie lankmoedigheid en geduld wat God ons die eerste leer, wanneer Hy ons laat smaak hoe geduldig en lankmoedig Hy met ons is. Dan beveel Hy ons om dieselfde houding teenoor ander te handhaaf, om teenoor ander mense soos Jesus op te tree. Onthou dat jou indrukke van ander moontlik op onvoldoende of selfs foutiewe inligting gegrond mag wees. As dit dan verder deur die geringste mate van vooroordeel of suspisie in jou eie gedagtes en deur jou eie opinies versterk word, is dit ‘n uitgemaakte saak dat jy dan geensins ‘n objektiewe getuie kan wees wat regverdig teenoor iemand kan optree nie Die duiwel mag nooit daarin slaag om mense wat dieselfde doel en strewe het en uit een Vader weergebore is deur misverstande of nietige verskille wreed uitmekaar te skeur nie. Die skade en pyn is te groot as Christus se “liggaam” so verskeur word. Verdraagsaamheid, geduld en lankmoedigheid moet deur ‘n kind van God as ‘n magtige, onweerstaanbare en kragtige wapen vir God gebruik word. Liefde verander selfs enige moeilike opdrag en eentonige plig en maak dit ‘n plesier sodat dit elke keer, na alle kante toe, vir jouself en vir ander loutere vreugde en groot seën en geestelike verryking is. - Ds.

The Siluan Warning Signs for childhood cancer were adopted by the South African Children’s Cancer Study Group and the national Department of Health to promote the early detection and treatment of cancer.

Many children in low- and middle-income countries have poor access to hospitals, which in turn lack essential diagnostic tests, experience a shortage of nursing medical and surgical personnel, inadequate and erratic supply of basic pharmaceutical and chemotherapeutic agents, and an absence of radiotherapy, surgical and intensive-care facilities. These are but some of the factors that contribute to patients’ presenting with advanced disease and resultant poorer outcomes. As neonatal, infant and child health improves in South Africa, communicable diseases, such as respiratory and diarrhoeal diseases, HIV-AIDS, and tuberculosis, are better controlled. It is imperative to focus on non-communicable diseases such as childhood cancer and identify these diseases early, have access to the correct diagnostics and therapeutics and ensure the availability of supportive care to improve overall survival of our children with cancer. The burden of the SARS-CoV-2 is further testing our fragile African healthcare systems. Many caregivers are unemployed due to national lockdowns, there are inadequate transport systems, and caregivers are afraid to venture out of the safety of their homes to seek healthcare as the ever-present danger of contracting Covid-19 lurks. Sadly, we may experience even further delays in the diagnosis of childhood cancer. We should endeavour to ensure children with cancer do not face further delays in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer during the global SARS-

Gold September is an annual campaign worldwide to raise awareness of childhood cancer. There are many advances in paediatric oncology, yet cancer remains a leading cause of mortality in children. It is imperative that children are diagnosed early for effec-

Many factors are responsible for delays in childhood cancer, including the child’s age, family’s socioeconomic status, parental educational level, distance of residence from the hospital, cancer type, site, and stage.

I would not have had the opportunity to run and win a medal. A great thank you to them for sticking it out with me!” said Sheryl shortly after touching down at OR Tambo Airport on Saturday morning. Scores of residents and cars lined the N1 on Sunday afternoon as Sheryl arrived back in Louis Trichardt amidst sheers of jubilation and the deafening sound of car horns being sounded while the South African flag was proudly waved. Even Makhado Mayor Samuel Munyai was there to congratulate Sheryl on behalf of the municipality and

its people. Following Sunday’s welcome-back event, Sheryl expressed her extreme gratitude towards all who attended. “Thank you seems inadequate! Louis Trichardt made my welcome home simply unforgettable. I am deeply humbled and very proud to be a Limpopian and an even prouder Louis Trichardter. The local newspaper seems the fitting platform to say thank you because I don’t have everyone’s names … there were so many arrangements and logistics that took place ... the energy was electric. Everyone may believe that I have inspired them, but I find my inspiration in every person from my hometown. So, thank you ever so deeply,” said Sheryl. She added that she looked forward to whatever came next, so that the community could grow together. “I have come to understand how even the most seemingly insignificant act of kindness can change a life forever, and this is priceless.

I believe that the people of Louis Trichardt are doing that every day,” said Sheryl. The organisers of the event also expressed their gratitude towards all who had made Sunday’s event possible, including Dawn Smit (car), Francé Krügel (car), Luke Enslin from Spar (flowers), Hilder from Spur (voucher), Hazel Leach (flags), Surat (flags), Premjee (water), Oasis Water (water), Mac & Rae Photography, Dirk from Innovated Designs (banner), Brig Gen Mathebula of AFB Makhado (PA system), Herman van Rensburg of AA Hobbies (drone), Werner Esterhuizen of Spotless Cleaning Services (drone), Capt Vele of the Makhado SAPS, Makhado municipal spokesperson Louis Bobodi and his team, Mayor Samuel Munyai, the Limpopo Traffic Department and Mr Avhatakali Themeli, the Vhembe District Municipality deputy manager for sport and recreation. Sheryl proudly displays her bronze medal, one of seven medals won by the 34-member South African Paralympic team. South Africa finished 34th overall in the medal standings of the Tokyo Summer Paralympic Games. Photo supplied.

Sheryl clenches her tongue between her teeth, something that has become somewhat of a trademark for her, as she waves to the crowd. She is not shy to give all glory for her achievements to the Lord.
