If not for the recent rains, the first four streets of households at Air Force Base (AFB) Makhado would have been connected to Eskom electricity during the course of last week. More than 1 000 residents from 234 households in the base’s Braambos residential area were left without electricity after a high-voltage supply cable that feeds the Eskom supply to the area exploded in two places on 10 October 2012. This was apparently followed by two more explosions five days later. Although the Department of Public Works was immediately informed of the explosions and subsequent total power outage, the department was slow in responding to the crisis. For more than a year the base had to make use of 13 standby generators at a running cost of more than R1,2 million per month to supply electricity to the residents. The contractor expects to connect these avenues by the end of this week, allowing the first four generators to be removed from service. New electric cables have been partly installed. According to a media release by the base, the use of standby generators is still an interim support measure by the Air Force to assist the 234 households with an ongoing supply of electricity. The generators are still maintained and serviced by

air force technicians of the base on a daily standby schedule. In case of breakdowns, the base is assisted by 5 Air Servicing Unit from AFB Waterkloof in Pretoria, while standby generators are used to provide an uninterrupted power supply. The general domestic situation has been stabilised, but many hours of overtime are still being worked by technicians to ensure ongoing electricity, in spite of regular failures. Since the appointment of a contractor by the Department of Public Works in November last year, progress has been good and the repair of systems and facilities such as substations and mini-substations is currently on schedule. After the connection of the first four streets at the end of this week, the first four generators will be kept on standby for the interim until full testing has been completed at the end of the repair project, estimated to be at the end of April. According to a statement by Brig Gen Schalk van Heerden, the officer commanding AFB Makhado, the morale of members has improved as progress of repairs can be seen on a daily basis. “On the lighter side of the situation, households that receive their electricity from the generators have not been affected by the recent load-shedding programme of Eskom,” Van Heerden said.

Reën kortwiek werk aan dorp se boorgate Die boorgate suidwes van Makhado (Louis Trichardt) wat ‘n groot gedeelte van die ou dorp en Tshikota se water voorsien, word weer oorgedoen en opgeknap. Dié boorgate se toerusting is in Desember 2011 splinternuut oorgedoen teen ‘n koste van R2.4m, net om ‘n maand later vernietig te word deur koperkabeldiewe en vandaliste. Die jongste herstelkontrak se voltooidatum was in Desember verlede jaar, maar weens ‘n laat aanstellingsbrief en die reën wat hulle gekortwiek het, sê die kontrakteurs dat die verwagte voltooidatum nou skuif na die einde van Maart. “Dan moet ons vir seker klaar wees,” het mnr. Liano Viviers, in vennootskap met mnr. Michael Sambo van Solidarity Developers, wat die kontrak gekry Mnr. Liano Viviers van Polokwane, wat in vennootskap met Solidarity Developers is, hoop om het, verlede week gesê. Viviers is van Polokwane die werk teen die einde van Maart klaar te hê. Die swaar reëns is egter ‘n faktor wat die werk en Solidarity se hoofkantoor is in Tzaneen. Die terughou. Hier is ‘n brug wat herstel moet word en daar moet ook paaie gebou word om by sekere voltooidatum is steeds van die boorgate uit te kom. Foto verskaf. onderhewig aan die reën. Die sement kan nie op nat grond gegooi word nie. Viviers en die sub-kontrakteur vir die pompe, mnr. Johan Kotze, het gesê dat hulle ‘n brug moet herstel en paaie moet bou om by sekere van die boorgate uit te kom. “Ons was al in November laasjaar hier en sou in Desember klaargemaak het, maar die aanstellingsbrief het weke gevat. Daarna het die reën ons gekortwiek, maar ons het al goed gevorder,” het Viviers gesê. Hulle het reeds die vier nuwe boorgate in die dorp reggemaak. “Al vier pomp deur die dag in die sisteem in. Die vier boorgate is in Presidentstraat, President Steynstraat, by die toetsstasie in Kortstraat en in die karavaanpark. Die een in Presidentstraat wil hulle reguit met die reservoir verbind, maar dit is nie deel van Solidarity se kontrak nie,” het Viviers gesê. Dan is daar nog 10 boorgate waaraan hulle werk. Die een is by die treinspoor, nog een is oos van Kortstraat en agt is buite by die Rietvley plotte, op die Sin­thumulepad. Die kontrakteurs bou nuwe

pompkamers, installeer nuwe motors, nuwe pompe, nuwe bedrading en kragbokse (starter boxes). Vyf pomphuisvloere is klaar gegooi en een pomphuisie, aan die noordekant van die Sinthumulepad, is klaar gebou. “Hulle het probeer om my katrol deur die nou openinkie tussen die muur en die dak uit te trek en te steel, maar hulle kon dit nie regkry nie,” het Kotze gesê en bygevoeg dat hulle as ekstra maatreëls teen diefstal staalpype en monopompe gebruik. “Als is nou toe onder sement. Dit sal nie meer so maklik wees om te steel nie,” het Kotze gesê. Plaaslike Afriforum-voorsitter mnr. Wally Schultz het hierdie week die vordering by die boorgate gaan inspekteer. “Mens kan nie met ‘n voertuig daar inkom nie, en ons moes enkeldiep en partyplekke kniediep deur die modder tot by die boorgate stap. Daarom aanvaar ek dat hulle voltooidatum aanskuif,” het Schultz gesê. Sekuriteit by die boorgate bly seker steeds een van die grootste knelpunte. Die Solidarity kontrakteurs het aan die Zoutpansberger gesê dat die telemetriese sisteem nie onder hulle kontrak val nie. Die Vhembe Distriksmunisipaliteit se bestuurder van tegniese dienste, mnr. Ratidzai Madimutsa, het op 13 Maart bevestig dat Vhembe definitief die telemetriese sisteem gaan installeer en dat ‘n ander kontrakteur, Belta, daarvoor aangestel is. “Sodra Solidarity klaarmaak, sal Belta inbeweeg,” het Madimutsa gesê. Buiten die telemetriese sisteem, waarvolgens persone op hulle selfone kennis kry as daar aan die pompe gepeuter word, sal sekuriteitswagte ook ontplooi word. Daar word asem opgehou dat daar nie voordat al die sisteme in plek is, weer groot skade deur diewe aangerig word nie. Die kontrakteurs het vertel dat hulle in Desember verlede jaar daar gekom het en gevind het dat, binne die bestek van een week, al wat ‘n kabel is aan die vorige sisteem uitgesteel is en groot vernietiging aangerig is.

“Als is nou toe onder sement. Dit sal nie meer so maklik wees om te steel nie”

Environmental Affairs Sekuriteit bly altyd ‘n knelpunt. Daar was ‘n mislukte poging om ‘n katrol deur die nou openinkie tussen die muur en die dak van die stewige nuwe pomphuis uit te trek en te steel. ‘n Telemetriese sekuriteitsisteem word in die vooruitsig gestel, asook sekuriteitswagte.

Meneer luislang vind ‘n nuwe tuiste Só groot was ‘n luislang wat hier in die Soutpansberge gevang is dat dié meneer, opgekrul in sy krat, sommer soos twee slange gelyk het. Danksy twee boesemvriende se spanwerk het die slang ‘n nuwe tuiste gekry op die Blouberg Natuurreservaat naby Vivo. Johan van Wyk, die bestuurder van Blouberg, se hulp is ingeroep nadat die slang, van by die 5 meter, vroeg in Maart ‘n boer van Makhado (Louis Trichardt) se boerbok doodgedruk het. Die slang het nie die bok ingesluk nie, maar daar is besluit om dit eerder te verskuif as vakant te maak. Synde die Blouberg Reservaat onder die staat se beheer val, moes die sente maar twee keer omgedraai word, en Johan het sy vriend Barry Fourie gevra om die slang te gaan haal. So gesê, so gedaan, maar toe Barry sien presies hoe groot die slang is, het hy net daar op die plek besluit om eerder maar self die slang deur te ry Blouberg toe. “Nee heng, ek het vir die ou gesê ek soek nie so ‘n groot slang op my plaas nie,” het Barry, wat self in die Witvlag-omgewing boer, vandeesweek aan die Zoutpansberger gesê.

Met sy aankoms by Blouberg het die sekuriteitswag vir Barry gevra of hy dan nou twéé slange gebring het. “Nee, net een slang ... een groot slang,” was die antwoord. Op die reservaat het Johan en Barry ‘n plekkie gekry waar hulle die slang veilig kon vrylaat. Die fisiese loslaatwerk het Barry vir Johan gelos, sodat daar ‘n foto geneem kan word van die heuglike gebeurtenis. Ook maar goed so, vertel Johan, want toe die slang besef dat hy vry is om te gaan was hy soos blits weg. “Daar was nie toe nog tyd gewees vir foto’s nie,” het Johan Dinsdag telefonies aan die koerant gesê. Intussen het die slang se verhuising vir ‘n interessante debat gesorg onder plaaslike natuur­ liefhebbers wat lede is van die Blouberg Natuurreservaat se Facebook-blad. Die Suider-Afrikaanse lui­ slang, of te wel Phython natalensis, is tans gelys as ‘n be­ kerm­de spesies in die Limpopo Omgewingsbestuur Wet (Wet 7 van 2003). Dit is juis hierdie status wat die debat aangevuur het. Daar is party soos Annette Kennealy, ‘n boorling van die Soutpansberge, wat voel dat

die luislang se populasie dramaties toegeneem het weens sy beskerm­de status. Sy voel daar moet ‘n balans gehandhaaf word, anders kan te veel luislange ander be­skerm­de diere soos die rooi­d uiker uitroei. “Deur ‘n luislang, wat gered is, te verskuif kan mens die balans van die nuwe habitat versteur,” het Annette gesê. Na haar mening moet die luislang se status dalk eerder hersien word. Ander natuurliefhebbers voel weer dat die luislang beskerm moet word, al is dit ten koste van ander beskermde diere. Vaughan Jessnitz meen dat die luislang beslis uitgeroei sal word as dit van die beskermde lys van diere afgehaal word, en dat daar vrylik in hulle handel gedryf sal word. Daar is, volgens Johan, glo ‘n mark vir luislange op die onwettige muti-mark. Sotho en Pedi mense glo as jy ‘n dooie luislang naby jou beeskraal begrawe jou beeste net so vet sal word soos die luislang. Mense, sê Johan, is ook lief daarvoor om luislange aan te hou as troeteldiere. Hy het egter gewaarsku dat strawwe boetes opgelê kan word indien jy nie die nodige permitte van die Departement Omgewingsake bekom om die slang aan te hou nie.

R225 million donation towards rhinos Rangers and others involved in the national effort to stop rhino poaching received a welcome boost to continue the fight, thanks to generous sponsors. American philanthropist Howard Buffet announced last week that he will donate R225 million over three years towards the anti-poaching fund of the Kruger National Park (KNP). On Monday, the KNP received a further R1 million from Unitrans Volkswagen. The donation was announced on Friday, at the same time

as the Department of Environmental Affairs released its latest rhino-poaching statistics. While slightly down from the year’s earlier rhino death statistics, South Africa is still losing more than two rhinos a day to poachers. Spokesperson for SANParks Mr Reynold Thakhuli said the extra funding would go toward creating an intensive protection zone, which will see the use of sophisticated detection and tracking equipment and infrastructure on the ground and in the air, elite

canine units, improved intelligence gathering and observation and surveillance systems. In addition, part of the Buffet funding will also be utilized to test anti-poaching tactics that can be applied in other parts of Africa where rhinos are also under threat. Speaking at the funding announcement, Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa said the illicit wildlife trade was the fourth-largest syndicated criminal activity in the world after drug and human trafficking and arms smuggling.

Be careful warns SA Weather Service

Following the recent heavy rains in Limpopo, Mr Mkhushulwa Msimanga, senior forecaster for the South African Weather Services, warned last week that levels of soil moisture in many places remained high and it would therefore not require much more rain to cause flooding. He urged communities living along river environments to remain on high alert. Causeways are also prone to flooding under such conditions and motorists are urged to be vigilant, especially at night and/or in conditions of limited visibility. * If at all possible, stay indoors and off roads. * If walking outdoors, avoid crossing rivers and swollen streams where water is above

your ankles. * Just six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock a person off their feet, and a depth of two feet is enough to float a car. * Never try to walk, swim or drive through fast-moving flood water. Stop, turn around and go another way. * Listen to the special warnings on the radio and/or television. * Take note of the information that has been shared by the Emergency Services or Disaster Management Centres. * Abandon your home immediately if evacuation is recommended, before access is cut off by flood water. * Never drive into water covering the road. You will not know how deep it is or if the road has

been washed away. * If the vehicle stalls, leave it immediately and seek higher ground * Be especially cautious at night when it’s harder to recognize flood dangers. The South African Weather Service will continue monitoring any further developments relating to this weather system and will issue subsequent updates as required. Furthermore, the public is urged to follow weather forecasts on television and radio regularly. Updated information can also be found at www.weathersa.co. za as well as via the SA Weather Service twitter account @ SAWeatherService. (Information supplied by the South African Weather Service)

Nuus van tannie Elaine se skielike dood skok Talle inwoners van die Soutpansberg het met hartseer en skok verneem van die afsterwe van mev. Elaine Hoffmann (70) op 11 Maart na ‘n kort siekbed. “Net ses weke en sy was weg,” het haar dogter, mev. Heidi Janse van Rensburg, gesê en vertel dat hul geliefde moeder kort tevore met pankreas-, limf- en klierkanker gediagnoseer is. “Ons mis haar so; sy het elke oggend om tienuur by die winkel ingekom en kom kuier.” Elaine se eggenoot, mnr. Martin Hoffmann van Matman, is ‘n ou bekende in die besigheidswêreld en in die dorp. Die Hoffmanns het hulle sowat 40 jaar gelede (in Desember 1973) in Louis Trichardt kom vestig. “Elaine was altyd vriendelik en het as huisvrou kwaliteit-tyd aan ons kinders gegee. Die mense in die dorp het haar geken as iemand wat baie lief was

vir mooi aantrek en mooi juwele – jy kon haar altyd deur ‘n ring trek. Sy was ‘n rolmodel vir baie van die dorp se vrouens, wat gesê het dat hulle wens hulle kon soos sy lyk. Sy was goed vir almal en het geleef vir haar kleinkinders en hondjies. Die drie Yorkies slaap nou by my op die bed,” het ‘n bedroefde oom Martin gesê. Elaine (Danelia Johanna) was ‘n nooi De Beer wat op 13 Maart 1943 in die destydse Pietersburg gebore is en ook daar skoolgegaan het. Martin en Elaine het drie kinders, Cindy, Mark en Heidi. “Ons is so hartseer dat sy haar kleinseun, Jonathan, se troue in April gaan mis,” het oom Martin gesê. Martin en Elaine was beide lede van die dorp se tennisklub. Elaine se pragtige pryswenner-tuin in Bredastraat is deur menige inwoner bewonder en baie het van haar “sonbed” gebruik kom maak. “Sy was lief vir plante, blomme en die natuur. Sy het in Pietersburg tuine uitgelê,” het Heidi gesê . “Sy was ‘n vrou, mamma en ouma duisend,” het haar dogter, Cindy Strydom, gesê. Cindy se dogter, Lucinda, het gesê dat haar Oumie vir haar in elke opsig perfek was en haar seun Armand was dankbaar vir al die aanmoediging wat hy van sy ouma gekry het. “Ons gaan jou regtig mis, maar Mamma is in onse Vader se huis waar elkeen van ons gaan volg om Mamma weer te ontmoet,” het Mark gesê. Wyle Elaine Hoffmann se gedenkdiens is op 15 Maart deur ds. Dick Mahné in die Metodiste Kerk waargeneem. Sy word oorleef deur haar man, dogter Cindy en Theunis Strydom (met Lucinda en Armand), dogter Heidi en Tommy Janse van Rensburg (met Jonathan en Charlene) en seun Mark en Mariëtte Hoffmann. Die familie bedank graag dr. Emile Gaigher en die verpleegpersoneel van die Zoutpansberg Privaathospitaal, ds. Mahné, Marinda van Marinda Haarsalon, asook die gemeenskap vir al die blomme en oproepe om medelye te betoon.

Construction work to complete a traffic circle at the Elim intersection on the N1 South is well under way. In addition, the N1, stretching from Makhado (Louis Trichardt) to Matoks, will be repaired and resurfaced. By Isabel Venter

Please be patient with N1 construction Construction work on the na­tional road that stretches through Makhado (Louis Trichardt) is well under way. This project, funded by the South African National Road Agency Limited (SANRAL), will run between Makhado (Louis Trichardt) and Matoks. Because of the recent heavy rainfall in the region, the completion date of the project had to be extended. Work done on this stretch of road is expected to be completed by the end of December

this year. Not only will the road surface be fixed, but a traffic circle will be built at the Elim-road intersection. Repair work done to the N1 has already started with the grading of the road surface. Problem areas are fixed and then covered with a slurry mix before it can be covered up again with a smooth tar layer. After the tar layer, road marks will be repainted on the surface. For the traffic circle, work on the vehicle bypass strips is nearly complete. The bypass

strips will enable motorists to still drive on the N1 while construction work will move to the middle of the road, where the traffic circle will be built. If the weather permits it, the bypass will be completed in three weeks’ time. The newspaper was able to determine that this will see the implementation of stop-and-go points before and after the Elim intersection. There will be no construction work during school and public holidays.

Solidariteit Helpende Hand het verlede week ‘n noodfonds op die been gebring vir Limpopo-inwoners wat deur die onlangse vloede geraak is, met spesifieke fokus op die inwoners van Bela-Bela en Lephalale. Persone en instansies wat deur die vloede geraak is, word genooi om Helpende Hand se Limpopo-streeksorganiseerder, Marianthie van der Walt, te kontak vir moontlike bystand. Van der Walt kan gekontak word by 082 741 7858. Met fondse wat deur die SMS-lyn ontvang is, is Helpende Hand in die proses om ‘n kragopwekker vir die Warmbad Rusoord in Bela-Bela aan te koop. As gevolg van die vloede moet die rusoord vir lang tydperke sonder elektrisiteit klaarkom. Talle skenkings van kos, komberse en klere is ook ontvang wat deur die Helpende Hand Limpopo-takke versprei word. “Ons is ontsettend dankbaar vir die bydraes

wat ons reeds ontvang het,” sê Danie Brink, die uitvoerende hoof van Solidariteit Helpende Hand. “Ons doen egter ‘n beroep op die publiek om steeds skenkings aan die noodfonds te maak, omdat die vloedskade reeds baie omvattend is en skade steeds aangemeld word. Hoe meer geld ons ontvang, hoe meer mense kan ons help.” Volgens die jongste mediaberigte is die Waterberg-streek in die provinsie reeds tot rampgebied verklaar en miljoene rande se skade is aangerig. Duisende inwoners moes glo deur reddingsdienste uit die vloede gered word en die omvang van die skade is as “kritiek” bestempel. Die publiek kan tot die noodfonds bydra deur “RAMP” na 38969 te SMS en só R10 by te dra. Skenkings kan ook in die volgende rekening inbetaal word: Solidariteit Helpende Hand, FNB, rekeningnommer 62 331 445 503, tjekrekening, takkode 250655 en verwysing NOODFONDS.

Saryna Kiddi Care expands services

Saryna Kiddi Care has expanded its services to include pre-school facilities for babies from birth up to four years. It opened its doors on 3 February and is situated in 63 Cilliers Street. “To treat every child like our own is our motto,” says Sister Riana Claassens, who offers a combination of health services and pre-school facilities. Saryna Kiddi Care has a cli nic where immunization can be done and a sick clinic, where children with contagious illnesses can be isolated

and cared for, or those with other illnesses be nursed to health. The implication is that a sick baby or child can still be brought to school and will be well cared for. Children in the pre-school receive these services for free, but sick children attending other pre-schools will also be accommodated upon arrangement. The clinic is on the same premises as the new preschool, which is unique in the sense that it boasts an indoor soft-play area for those days that are either too hot or too

rainy for outside play, as well as a stimulation room, where the focus is on the development of gross motor skills. All meals are provided, including breakfast, lunch and a variety of snacks. Baby formula milk must be brought along. The day-to-day care and well-being of the children is under the management of Salome Chasserieau, with the aid of five staff members. Saryna Kiddi Care wants to make things as easy and as comfortable as possible for parents and children.

Leraar se saak word weereens uitgestel Die Generaal Piet Joubert Voortrekkerkommando in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) het op 11 Maart besoek afgelê by LMB Makhado se brandweereenheid. “Ons wil vir die brandweer hartlik bedank dat hulle tyd gemaak het om vir ons kinders meer te leer oor hoe die brandweer werk. Dit was baie interessant en klink of daar ‘n paar is wat graag brandweermanne of -vroue sal wil word as hulle groot is,” het die voortrekkerleiers gesê. Afgeneem van links na regs is lt. Mabitsi, sers. Perrucatti, sers. Humpries, Duncan Rossouw, Riana Otto, Dillan Rossouw, JJ Wepener, Loandrè Venter, Jean Marie Otto, Rina Eybers, Altus Otto, Phillip Eybers en Yolandie Visagie.

Die verhoor van ‘n NG-leraar van Makhado (Louis Trichardt) sloer steeds voort, nadat daar steeds gewag word op ‘n beslissing van die Direkteur van Openbare Vervolging (DOV). Philip Arnoldus Venter (58), die voormalige le­ raar van die NG Kerk Soutpansberg-gemeente, het weer op Vrydag, 14 Maart, hier in die Distrikshof verskyn. Hy staar moontlike klagtes wat verband hou met die nalatige verlies van ‘n vuurwapen(s) en ook bedrog in die gesig. Venter het reeds op 5 Julie verlede jaar vir Lanbousake

Nuwe vereistes vir die invoer van rooivleis Die nasionale Rooivleisprodusente-organisasie (RPO) het die nuwe vereistes vir die invoer van beeste, skape en bokke van Namibië, Botswana, Lesotho en Swaziland, verwelkom. Die nuwe vereistes is deur die Direkteur van Dieregesondheid aangekondig en sal op 1 Mei 2014 in werking tree. Die RPO, die Nasionale Ontwikkelende Rooivleis Produsente-organisies (NERPO) sowel as die Melkprodusente-organisasie, die Nasionale Wolkwekersvereniging en die Suid-Afrikaanse Stamboekver­e niging is van mening dat dit die land se dieregesondheidstatus tot ‘n redelike mate sal beskerm. Ingevolge die aankondiging is daar besluit dat die Suid-Afri­ kaanse invoervereistes vir die relevante spesies vir alvier die betrokke lande gestandaardiseer

die eerste keer vlugtig in die hof verskyn op dié klagtes. Venter se regsverteenwoordiger, mnr. Jaco Venter, het egter aangedui dat hy ‘n vertoë gerig het aan die DOV om te beslis of Venter vervolg moet word of nie. Intussen het die landdros Venter se saak finaal uitgestel tot 12 Mei in afwagting op die DOV se beslissing. Indien die beslissing teen daardie tyd nog nie beskikbaar is nie, kan die saak teen Venter voorlopig teruggetrek word.

moet wees. Enige permitte wat reeds uitgereik is en ná die implementeringsdatum verval en wat nog nie voor die implementeringsdatum gebruik is nie, kan na die permitkantoor aangestuur word, waar dit vervang sal word met die nuwe vereistes. Geen besending wat vergesel is van ‘n veterinêre dieregesondheidsertifikaat met die huidige vereistes sal ná die implementeringsdatum aanvaar word nie. Die volgende spesifieke voorwaardes is onder meer in terme van die nuwe vereistes geldig: * Wat beeste betref, mag die land van herkoms en uitvoer nie ‘n vorige geval van BSE aangemeld het nie en daar moet ‘n verbod wees op voer wat van diere afkomstig is, sowel as op beenmeel. Hierdie vereistes geld ook vir bokke en skape. * Beeste moet ook afkomstig

wees van ‘n land/sone wat deur die OIE erken word as vry van bek-en-klouseer, sonder inenting. Ander siektes wat relevant is vir beeste, is Johne se siekte, hondsdolheid, leptospirosis, vibriose, trichomoniase, beesleukose, IBR/IPV, tuberkulose en brucellose. In die geval van skape en bokke sluit die relevante siektes in CBP, BSE, hondsdolheid, CAE, PPR, asook skaap- en bok-pokke. Ander voorwaardes sluit in pre-uitvoer isolasie, opspoorbaarheid van individuele diere by wyse van ‘n oorplaatjie en sekere inentings in die geval van beeste, skape en bokke.

CALENDAR / WHAT’S ON? KALENDER / WAT GEBEUR? • EASTER SERVICES AT DIFFERENT VENUES “We have come to

that time of the year again when we remember our Lord’s Passion as He entered Jerusalem before being crucified on the cross. It is always good that we come together as a community to remember his sacrifice, made for us all,” says Rev Robbie Novella. The combined services will commence on 13 April (Palm Sunday) at the Full Gospel Church at the corner of Rissik and Burger Street and will continue on Monday 14 April at the Methodist Church at 79 Munnik Street. On Tuesday, 15 April, the service will be at the Anglican Church at 128 Munnik Street, on Wednesday, 16 April, at Emmanuel Christian Centre at 3 Koraalboom Street and on Thursday, 17 April, at the Dutch Reformed Church (NG Kerk) Soutpansberg at the corner of Anderson and Stubbs Street. All the services will commence at 18:30. A freewill collection will be taken, the proceeds to be decided by the ministers forum at a later stage. “All are welcome to attend as this is a time when all the community needs to come together to answer the ‘Call to come home’. Lent is a journey home. To begin this journey requires that we stop and notice in which direction we are travelling. Let us stop running and turn back home to the heart of God,” says Rev Novella on behalf of the ministers forum. For further information Rev Novella can be contacted on 015 516 5165 or 083 400 6152.

2013 macadamia crop puts a smile on faces During the last few weeks, Green Farms Nut Company (GFNC) embarked on a road show to the regions where they have Macadamia processing plants to make their price offer for the 2014 season, as well as “wrap up” the 2013 crop. They also visited their Levubu processing plant. The growers were anxiously awaiting the final results of the 2013 season. Through the Green Farms Nut Company’s unique business model, suppliers get to share 100% of the profits of the sales of the nuts. With the foreign exchange rates in favour of exports, and through great international sales contracts that the marketing team managed to secure, Jill Whyte, CEO of Green Farms Nut Co, managed to present the growers with a 22% bonus or ‘backpay’ on what they had already received The Green and Gold marketing team. From left to right are Jill Whyte (CEO), Alex Whyte for their crop. (Europe, Africa and Middle East), Brian Loader (America and Japan) and Richard Genest (Asia, Jill also wanted to find out from the ‘grower partAustralia and Nieu-Zeeland). Photo supplied. ners’ what they thought the long-term strategy for GFNC should be and for the macadamia industry as a whole. South Africa expects to sell 50% of the 2014 crop as ‘nut in shell’ to China. After an interactive session with the growers, it appeared that they all agreed with the current strategies of GFNC, with about a 20% to 25% exposure to the Chinese market. Concern was expressed regarding the over-dependence on one lucrative market at the expense of longstanding kernel markets that have been established over many years. The danger of this was highlighted in the recent crash in pecan nut market prices internationally. It was also agreed that South African farmers should retain control over their own macadamia nut industry, and that processing macadamias was an important part of the value chain and an excellent job-creation opportunity for South Africa. It was also highlighted that 95% of all South

African product is sold via Hong Kong or Vietnam and is smuggled into China without paying the 24% duty that is levied by the Chinese government. This could pose a threat if the Chinese government became more vigilant about policing this transgression. The forecast for the 2014 season looks rosy. Alex Whyte presented the 2014 price expectations on which farmer’s initial payments will be made. With 2014 dollar prices showing a significant increase on the 2013 season, farmers were delighted with the future prospects. Alex reiterated the GFNC strategy to maintain long-term sustainable prices, with a very balanced marketing portfolio. GFNC’s marketing arm, Green and Gold, which is the largest 100% macadamia-nut-focused marketing company in the world, has direct access to and supplies the largest consumer retailers across the world. It was noted that the industry is achieving the highest prices ever, and that irresponsible marketing could create a tipping point, as has happened in the macadamia nut industry on previous occasions. Farmers, as the largest stakeholders in the industry, should always think long term and find out exactly what the marketing strategy is where they are supplying their product. GFNC has been in the macadamia nut industry for 23 years and has seen previous crashes as a result of short-term marketing policies. The meeting closed on a very positive note and GFNC urged farmers to supply them as they have large contracts that need to be fulfilled. “The company is doing all it can to maintain costs and to pay growers as fast as possible. We need the support of the Soutpansberg farmers to help us reduce costs and to keep our customers happy,” said Jill. For more information, phone Sylvia at 087 820 4650.

South Africans celebrate Water Week National Water Week is an awareness campaign by the Department of Water Affairs which serves as a powerful campaign mechanism to re-iterate the value of water, the need for sustainable management of this scarce resource and the role water plays in eradicating poverty and under-development in South Africa. The campaign seeks to continue building on the ongoing awareness creation within the broader South African community. This awareness creation is coupled with the responsibility that every citizen must take in ensuring the integrity of our water resources and their efficient use. Particularly, the linkages between water services, supply, resource management, poverty

eradication, and social and economic development are emphasised in a number of innovative ways. The awareness campaign is taking place from 17 to 23 March under the theme “Water is Life 20 Years of Water Delivery for Social and Economic Development”. The theme coincides with South Africa’s celebrations of 20 years of freedom and democracy. This momentous occasion presents an opportunity for South Africans to reflect on how freedom and democracy were achieved, the progress made in the past 20 years and how South Africans will work together to implement Vision 2030. This year, the department will celebrate the success of government’s water delivery programmes and management during the two decades of de-

Court News

Scrap metal “dealer” caught red-handed A scrap metal entrepreneur from Makhado (Louis Trichardt) had a run-in with the law this week. The 23-year-old Steven Nemagovhani Rudzani appeared in the Louis Trichardt District Court this Monday, where he was charged with theft. He was caught red-handed while stealing scrap metal from Jones Towing Service & Motor Spares, which is located in the industrial part of town. The owner of Jones Towing, Mr Jonas Maladza Livhuwani, upon realizing last week that theft was taking place at his business, decided to set a trap for the thieves. He had asked his employees to stand watch during the night, and, sure enough, on the night of 12 March they phoned Livhuwani

when they spotted someone sneaking into the premises and taking scrap metal and throwing it over the fence. When Livhuwani arrived on the scene, the criminal was confronted. At that stage, motor service parts to the value of R20 000 had been chucked over the fence. Rudzani identified himself and admitted that he was stealing the parts to go and resell it to scrapyard owners for money. The police were notified, and they came and arrested Rudzani. On Monday, Rudzani pleaded guilty to the charge of theft and was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment, which was suspended for a term of three years.

Methodist welcomes new minister The Methodist Church in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) welcomed a new minister, Rev Dick Mahné, on their pulpit on 19 January. Rev Dick and his wife, Corinne, have an interesting life story to tell, including how he became the “oldest youth pastor”. Their passion includes leading worship and establishing small groups. “Corinne and I were married in 1978 and moved to Pinetown in 1979, where we gave our lives to the Lord and served for 12 years in the Pinetown Methodist Church. We were active in the Sunday School and in leading worship… I began to sense that the Lord was calling me into fulltime ministry … In 1992 I took on a full-time position as the youth pastor at the Gonubie Methodist Church (East London area) and became the oldest youth pastor at 47 years old!” Dick served as a youth pastor for three years, after which he and Corinne went to the John Wesley College in Pretoria to study theology. “Dick is still an avid reader, always reading theology,” said Corinne. “She is a preacher in her own right,” said Dick.

The couple then served for eight years in Eshowe in Northern Kwazulu Natal. They were invited to Bethlehem in the Free State and served there for seven and a half years, with seven congregations under them. They retired in May last year and returned to their home in Pinetown for six months. “A fellow minister notified me of a position for a supernumary (retired) minister in Makhado (Louis Trichardt). I made enquiries and then applied for the position. And so we find ourselves here,” said Rev Mahné. “My passion is to look after him,” said Rev Mahné’s supportive wife. “Wherever we have been, we have led the worship. Our focus is to help people to encounter God through worship,” said Rev Mahné. The Mahnés are comfortable with and used to working with all culture groups. “This is a lovely community and we are enjoying it. We find them a warm and close-knit community with very good relationships over cultural barriers. There is genuine concern and love for each other,” said Rev Mahné.

Jongste syfers oor renosterstropery skok Daar is alreeds 173 renosters sedert die begin van die jaar doodgemaak vir hul horings. Dit is volgens die jongste syfers wat die Departement van Omgewingsake verlede Vrydag, 14 Maart, bekend gemaak het. “Die Krugerwildtuin word die swaarste getref, met 113 renosters wat sedert 1 Januarie gestroop is,” het die departement

se woordvoerder, Albi Modise, in ‘n verklaring gesê. Limpopo is kort op die hakke van Noord-Wes, waar daar tot dusver al 18 renosters van kant gemaak is. In Limpopo is daar 17 en in KwaZulu-Natal 11 renosters gedood. Modise het bevestig dat daar sedert die begin van 2014 reeds 54 verdagtes gearresteer is, waar-

van 24 in die Krugerwildtuin aangekeer is. Hy het weereens ‘n beroep op Suid-Afrikaners gedoen om enige voorvalle van stropery by die polisie aan te meld. Die telefoonnommer vir die polisie se wenklyn is 0800 205 005. ‘n Wenk kan ook per SMS gestuur word na 32211.

Warning not to misuse Public Protector’s office

Ridgeway Independent School in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) welcomes six new teachers. They are, from left to right, Ms Karien de Villiers, who teaches Human and Social Sciences (HSS) as well as Environmental Studies for all the Grades, Ms Coleen van Zyl (Grade 3), Ms Jenny van der Merwe (Grade R), Ms Alima Mapfumo (Grade R), Ms Makoena Mutshinyali (English and HSS for Grades 4 to 7) and Ms Helené Fick (Grade RR).

The provincial office of the Public Protector is warning people to stop misusing the services of the office, as this only delays service to people who need help from the office. According to Ms Blondie Netshidaulu, the communications officer, they have noted that there are people who raise complaints for political gain as elections are around the corner. “The office of the Public Protector wants to distance itself from assisting stakeholders in achieving political agendas,” she said. She stated that they were always accessible and available for people who might seek their services. “We are trying very hard to avail information to the public by distributing information pamphlets,

annual reports and newsletters,” Netshidaulu said. “These information materials are meant to inform the public about the services of the Public Protector’s office countrywide.” She said that most communities reported poor service delivery complaints and improper conduct by government officials to the Public Protector’s office, which the unit promised to investigate with care. “We encourage the public to continue lodging relevant complaints to our officed despite the political cloud which is currently hanging over our country at large,” she invited. The public can send their complaints to PO Box 4533, Polokwane, 0700 or phone 015 295 5712 during office hours.

Brief

“Ondersteun en waardeer die gewillige helpers by plaaslike DBV”

O

p Donderdag, 13 Maart, raak inwoners van ons omgewing bewus van ‘n hond wat onophoudelik blaf in die bosse suid van die gholfbaan. Teen Vrydag was dit duidelik dat daar iets ernstig skort. Soektogte is bemoeilik as gevolg van die ruie plantegroei en sagte reën. Vrydagmiddag het die jammerlike geklaag, afgewissel met ‘n geblaf, veroorsaak dat mens stokstyf met oop oë lê en wag dat die dag moet breek. Ná ‘n verdere soektog kon die posisie van die hond, ondanks die weer, uiteindelik bepaal word. ‘n Oproep na die plaaslike DBV het daartoe gelei dat Lawrence, in

beheer by die hokke, opgedaag het met sy assistent. Nadat die plek aan hom uitgewys is, het hulle op professionele en simpatieke wyse die arme dier spoedig verlos uit sy draadtronk en saamgeneem na die DBV. In hierdie dae, waar diens dikwels nie meer die wagwoord is nie, wil ons graag ons waardering en respek uitspreek vir hierdie liefdesdiens (Let wel, selfs ook op ‘n Saterdag!). Ondersteun en waardeer u plaaslike DBV! - Inwoners van Stephen Botha Singel en Kuiterstraat (Makhado / Louis Trichardt)

Daisy se bos is klaarblyklik deesdae êrens te midde van die stadsliggies te vinde, want sy word gereeld ge”wine” en ge”dine” in die wêreld van die belangrikes. Hierdie bederfies maak selfs ‘n draai in “da” land daar by die see en sluit ‘n eersteklas vliegrit in.

Daisy verkyk haar aan al die ruimte in besigheidsklas en die sedige gesigte. (Niemand anders aisy het haarself begin jammer kry lank voor kyk rond nie.) Toe sy teen die venster gaan sit is daar ‘n vriendelike waardin met pragtige rooi dit nodig was. lippe by om ‘n glas (regte) Champagne in haar Niemand stry nie – om GlobalGAP sertifise- hand te druk.

Maar Daisy kla steen en been by almal; veral hou? Al is ons eintlik gemakliker in die bos met net ‘n sarong en plakkies...” by haar Baardman. En klaarblyklik het Daisy Baardman glimlag binnetoe.

Terwyl hy daaraan dink is dit presies wat met sy is, sien hy skielik net hoë kliptorings en Daisy gebeur: met ‘n skud van haar hare en ‘n biprinsesse wat hulpeloos smeek om gered te word. Hy poets onwillekeurig sy borswering en etjie aarbeirooi lipstiffie verander Gëintimideerde verbaas homself toe hy sê: “Hei Daise, ek moet Daisy in Wêreldreisiger Daisy.

Hy kan nie glo wat hy sopas kwytgeraak het nie; sy begroting normale inboekprosedure te middelklas is vir haar. Baardman het ‘n luukse suite bespreek met is nader aan Holiday Inn en McDonalds. ‘n see-uitsig – iets wat die hotelpersoneel dadelik Maar Daisy is betower.

jou oesters...” En oesters het hulle geëet. En Franse vonkel gedrink. Later het Daisy van die badskuim en kerse onthou en dit het weer ‘n heel ander dimensie aan die oesters en wyn gegee. Iewers in die donkerblou ure van die nag word Daisy wakker en sy weet dadelik daar is groot fout. Was dit die oesters? Was dit die vonkelwyn? Maar daar is nie baie tyd vir haar om te wonder nie – die gedruis in haar maag word oorverdowend. “Daar is nie ‘n manier nie,” dink Daisy. “Sulke romantiese omstandighede strook eenvoudig nie met ‘n omgekrapte maag nie! Hoe verskriklik sal ek my nie skaam as Baardman te midde van hierdie ontploffing wakker word nie. Ek is ‘n objek van passie, nie ordinêr soos gewone mense wat liederlike dinge in toilette aanvang nie. Dink, Daisy, dink! Daar is nie baie tyd nie!” Dis toe dat Daisy onthou van die konferensiefasiliteite wat sy gesien het by Ontvangs. Sy gryp haar lang wit japon wat by die wit synagrok pas, raap die sleutels op en druk benoud die hysbak se knoppie. Op haar kaalvoete knyp sy eers een kant toe, dan anderkant toe. Toe die hysbakklokkie oorverdowend pieng!! in Ontvangs, is daar twee verbysterde personeellede wat deur die mis geskrik tweekeer moet kyk vir die wit gedaante wat rats in die konferensiegedeelte verdwyn. Dis eers heelwat later wat Daisy geluidloos weer in die hysbak klim en uitgeput teen Baardman se warm rug aan die slaap raak. Die volgende oggend skyn die son vir Daisy wakker net voor ‘n kelner met ontbyt aan die deur klop. Daisy hoor ‘n opgewonde gesprek met Baardman, maar sy kan nie die details hoor nie. “Waaroor is die kelner so opgewerk, Baardman?” vra sy terwyl sy lemoensap inskink. “Nee jong, jy ken mos die Kaapse klonge. Vreeslik bygelowig. Die hele hotel praat glo vanoggend daarvan hoe die nagstaf gisteraand ‘n spook sien wandel het daar in die gange by Ontvangs...”

Esegiël 33:1-9

O

ral waar ‘n mens gaan is daar tekens wat ons waarsku van moontlike gevaar wat voorlê. So kry ons stoptekens, toegeetekens, gevaartekens vir byvoorbeeld ‘n skerp draai in die pad, ensovoorts. Die meeste mense ignoreer egter hierdie tekens. Die Skrifgedeelte van vandag vertel ons dat God vir Esegiël aangestel het as wag oor Israel. Sy werk was om dié volk duidelik te waarsku dat God hulle binnekort gaan oordeel. As hulle in ag neem wat Esegiël sê sal hul lewens gespaar word, so nie sterf hulle. Esegiël moes die volk namens God waarsku, of hulle wou luister of nie. Jesus praat van geestelike blinde leiers wat mense nie waarsku teen God se toorn oor onbekeerde sondaars nie. (Lees ook Lukas 6:39). Vandag waarsku God ons in die Bybel deur die verkondiging van die Woord. Almal moet let op God se waarskuwings. Ons moet God se Worod lees en Sy gebooie gehoorsaam. As ons nie die Bybel lees nie, sal ons nie God se wil ken nie en ook nie besef Hy waarsku ons nie. Vra God om jou pad te lei na Jesus Christus, waar jy die ewige lewe sal vind. - 079 5168303

Uitkoms vir families wat sukkel met watertekorte

Pieter de Wet het hom onlangs aangesluit by die span van Harcourts in Makhado (Louis Trichardt). Hy sal voortaan die agentskap se plot- en plaasafdeling behartig en is voltyds op kantoor beskikbaar by tel. 072 860 1686. “Boere kan hom gerus skakel vir die koop en verkoop van ‘n plot of plaas,” nooi die agentskap. Hulle kan hom ook kontak by 015 516 1526 of by pieter.dewet@harcourts. co.za. Foto verskaf.

‘n Gedeelte van Louis Trichardt (Makhado) wat steeds deurloop onder kroniese watertekorte is die westelike deel van Joubertstraat. Vir een gesin hier is die uitkoms nou baie naby. Ná die jongste sarsie van ‘n paar waterlose weke het die Vhembe Distrikmunisipaliteit ‘n watertenk daar kom neersit, maar teen druktyd het mnr. Joe van Niekerk laat weet dat dit nog gevul moes word. Sedert November of Desember 2012 sukkel die gesin. “Partykeer kom die water 12 uur in die nag aan en dan was ons gou wasgoed voordat die water weer vieruur die oggend afgaan. Ander kere kom dit in die oggend aan as ek reeds by die werk is en gaan in die middag af as ek terugkom … Ons kan net stort as die water die oggend sesuur aankom. Maar die tye wissel so,” het mev. Melinda van Niekerk op 13 Maart gesê. Dit was vroegaand en juis toe het Kaley (12) verbygestap gekom met ‘n 5-liter bottel water in elke hand, op pad om haar badwater in die skotteltjie gereed te maak. Intussen het water op die stoof gekook. “Ek hou nie regtig daarvan as ons so min water kry nie,” het Kaley gesê, maar geduldig water aangedra. “Dit is glad nie lekker om in ‘n skotteltjie te bad nie,” het Gerrit (9) gesê. Nadat daar Desember verlede jaar water was, het die Van Niekerks se waterprobleme vroeg in Januarie weer begin. Die afgelope drie weke het hulle op 5, 6 en 7 Maart ‘n paar uur water gehad en ook op 16 Maart. Hulle het water aangedra van ‘n gemeenskaplike watertenk op die perseel wat hulle huur. Later van tyd het hulle ‘n tuinslang aangelê

en dra nou die waterbottels vanaf die agterstoep aan. Verder koop hul drinkwater en water waarmee hulle kosmaak as gevolg van die bruinerige kleur van die water. “As die tenk op die huurperseel leeg is, laai ons kanne in die kar en gaan haal water by my ma-hulle, maar jy kan ook net soveel kanne in ‘n kar laai,” het Van Niekerk gesê. Een van die mees gereelde insette op die AfriForum Facebook-blad is seker dié van Joe wat sê dat daar nie water is nie. “Die Vhembe mense is seker al moeg vir my posts. As Wally van AfriForum terugkom na die naweek sal dinge seker weer gebeur,” was Van Niekerk se moedelose opmerking verlede week. Vhembe het in daardie stadium al twee maal op die blad gesê dat hulle ‘n watertenk gaan bring. Maandagmiddag laat, net nadat mnr. Wally Schultz weer vir Vhembe oor die Van Niekerks se penarie geskakel het, het mnr. David Mukosi, Vhembe se waterdienste bestuurder in Makhado, gesorg dat daar ‘n 5000-liter tenk voor in die erf geplaas word. Dinsdag het Mukosi gesê dat hy reeds instruksies gegee het dat die tenk opgevul moet word. “Dit is ‘n tydelike maatreël, totdat ons loodgieters die werklike probleem opgespoor en herstel het,” het Inwoners en hul kinders dra water aan om in Mukosis aan die Zoutpansberger gesê. ‘n skotteltjie te kan bad.

Sex-workers urged to get tested regularly

Mr Bardwell Mufunwaini spoke to sex workers in Makhado last Wednesday. Notice

Please don’t just leave a message The Louis Trichardt SPCA would like to appeal to the public not to send messages when they have a problem with animals. “We do not respond to any

messages sent via SMS, cell phone, land line, funk mail, whatsapp, please call me or any other way of messaging. If there is a problem, please call 082 965 5151 and speak to us,” says Mrs

Bea Reimer of the local SPCA. She added that, before going out to attend to the problem, they need information. “We cannot just rush out there to find that, in fact, there is no problem.”

Sex workers in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) received HIV and Aids awareness training, so that they could teach other community members about the dangers of the disease and encourage them to practice safe sex. This emerged during the meeting between the sex workers and Munna Ndi Nnyi last Wednesday. “We are encouraging all people, including sex workers, to go for HIV tests and other tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs),” said Munna Ndi Nnyi’s director, Mr Bardwell Mufunwaini. “We have formed a strong committee among sex workers, so that they might educate other sex workers about the dangers of HIV/AIDS and STIs.” According to Mufunwaini, many sex workers are not known because they do not operate in an obvious way. “Any woman who welcomes a man in her life in exchange for material or financial gain is a sex worker who hides herself behind the walls of her house,” he said. “If the man stops bringing clothes or food for that woman’s children, he would possibly be kicked out of the house and another man might occupy his space. If the police arrest the so-called sex workers, they must also arrest the clients,” lamented Mufunwaini. He said that it was not a good thing to be known as a sex worker as the community had already labelled sex workers as prostitutes. “But people still go to buy from sex workers” he said. “It’s up to us as a nation not to find ourselves entangled deep in the things or practices which we normally condemn in public.” He then called upon businesspeople to consider

employing sex workers, so that they may stop their sexual practices and work for their children. “Let’s continue to lead a healthy lifestyle and show respect to one another,” he concluded. The team of trained sex workers told Munna Ndi Nnyi about the kind of abuse they get from the law enforcers. “There’s one brutal police officer in particular,” said one of the women, who operates her business at Dzithangani. “He had raped me twice; first it was vaginally and then he forced me to perform oral sex on him, using a condom. He always took the used condoms away with him to kill the evidence.” The sex workers believe that the police also collude with thugs who come to rob and rape them at Dzithangani. “The thugs demand operational fees from us,” she said. “If we say we do not have money, they tell us to pay with sex. I have done that many times.” She added that, if she were to report an incident of rape, it would be useless because the police also harassed and abused them. “They fail to appreciate the decrease in rape incidents in the area since we started selling sex here,” she said. A 33-year-old woman, who originally came from Zimbabwe, is mother of four children and has been a sex worker for seven years. “The brutal policeman cancels our passports and asylum,” said Sindiswa. “We feel that the police’s duty is to arrest and not abuse us. We are only doing our business here. Many men come to us with domestic problems and we give them proper counselling, so that they come back again.”

Kremetart 2014

Bespreek nou stalletjie vir Kremetart Persone wat graag ‘n stalletjie by die toerisme inligtingsentrum wil bespreek vir vanjaar se gewilde Kremetart Fietswedren vanaf 6 tot 8 Junie sal moet gou maak, aangesien daar plek is vir slegs 24 stalletjies. Die Kremetart Fietswedren in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) word vanjaar vir die 25ste keer aangebied en beloof om iets besonders te wees. Die koste per stalletjie vir 6 en 7 Junie (Vrydag en Saterdag) is R500 per stalletjie en R250 per stalletjie op 8 Junie (Sondag) vir die bergwedren. Die uitstalruimte is 3x3 meter.

Projek maak navorsers van voëlkykers Die plaaslike voëlkykersklub, BirdLife Soutpansberg, het die afgelope naweek hul eerste uitstappie vir die jaar geniet op die plaas Verbaard naby Musina. ‘n Bonus was die weer wat lekker saamgespeel het. Dit het lede die kans gegee om hul voëllysies vir 2014 te begin. Die uitstappie het ook saamgeval met die Sui­ der-Afrikaanse Voëlatlasprojek se burgerlike wetenskap week. Hierdie projek vorm deel van die Universiteit van Kaapstad se diere demografiese eenheid. Die doel van die atlasprojek is om Jan Alleman die geleentheid te gee om ook ‘n navorser te wees en ‘n daadwerklike bydrae tot die bewaring van die omgewing te lewer. Die projek maak staat op ‘n Internet-databasis en selfoon “app” wat gebruikers kan gebruik om die voëls wat hulle opmerk in te dien. Dit is gratis om as ‘n gebruiker, of dan nou navorser, te registreer op die projek se webblad.

Een spesie wat deur BirdLife Soutpansberg opgemerk en ingedien is by die atlasprojek was die Sabota Lewerik (sien foto). Dié klein, bruin voëltjie het die BirdLifers ‘n bietjie laat kopkrap weens die afwesigheid van die kenmerkende wit borsvere. “Dit kon netsowel ‘n Bosveld Koester gewees het,” het BirdLife Soutpansberg se voorsitter, mnr. Barry Fourie, vandeesweek gesê. Die inligting van waar en wanneer die lewerik opgemerk is, tesame met die foto, is aan die atlasprojek gestuur om uit te vind wat hul paneel van kenners se bevinding is. Leweriks in die Soutpansberg-streek, het Fourie verduidelik, se kleur verskil dramaties van dié wat elders in Suid-Afrika voorkom. Dit was egter die wit strepie bo die lewerik se oog wat in hierdie geval die deur­ slaggewende eieningsmerk was vir die projek se kenners. Nou is die Soutpansberg-lewerik ook sommer deel van die

projek se virtuele dieremuseum en kan daar met sekerheid gesê word dat die spesie nog hier voorkom. Vir meer inligting oor die atlasprojek of om aan te sluit by BirdLife Soutpansberg kan Fourie per e-pos gekontak word by barry@xpress.co.za.

wat binne en buite die biertuin verkoop sal word, sal daar vanjaar slegs een kosstalletjie per kos­s oort toegelaat word. Herhalings van kossoorte sal nie toegelaat word nie. “Ons probeer daarop fokus om ook soveel moontlik uitstallers te lok om ‘n groter verskeidenheid van produkte daar te hê,” sê die organiseerders. ‘n Stalletjie sal slegs bespreek en bevestig kan word indien bewys van betaling ontvang is. “Stalletjies gaan nie gehou word en later betaal word nie. Die beginsel van ‘eerste betaal, eerste bespreek’ sal geld,” sê die klub.
