Dear Sir, Mr Prancing Man, at the Standard Bank intersection, almost got run over on Tuesday morning by none other than me.

Please traffic authorities, remove this man. I do not want to be charged with culpable homicide or worse, just because this idiot walks infront of my vehicle, in his quest to bum money from other motorists. Kind regards,

I would like to take the opportunity to thank each and every person, company, school and church that have contributed, donated and helped with the water project for Vryheid and Paulpietersburg. The response after just one single message is absolutely overwhelming and truly a blessing. Thanks to: Johan (Vermaak Transport), André (Anco Manufacturing), Denzel (Mondi), Ernst (KMR Plastics) and Selvyn (M&R Oil) for the innovative ideas and support at the beginning regarding the setting up and filling of tanks. Thanks also to Chantell and Johan (Absolutely Water), Maruscka and Lynette (Avva Water), Mr M.S. Badat (operation Hydrate), Cedric Jones, Bossie Ferreira, Noddy’s School, Rinkel- Krinkel, NG Kerk, St John’s Anglican Church, Piet Retief Primary School, Isak du Plooy and Koos Pretorius. Furthemore I want to thank Anton and his team at the fire brigade for further assistance in filling water bottles and distributing them as well as for all the organising involved in the project. To those who are still helping and everyone that is still getting involved, thank you! Words cannot express the gratitude that has come from residents in need. So simply, THANK YOU.

Dear Sir, With the impending re-location of the Municipal Testing Grounds and the Licence Office to Gerhard Bohmer Street leading to eThandakukhanya (next to the old cemetery), the authorities will have to look at the alternative traffic control at the intersection with Kerk Street, Hospital Street and Gerhard Bohmer Street. In it’s current form, it is a challenge to cross over from East to West or from West to East. We innovative locals have resorted to turning south into Kerk Street and then cross over near the crest of the hill, meander through the bushes to Mansoor Street into the Kempville Shopping Centre or to Life Hospital. And even the traffic officials use this route.

Kind regards,

David Hancock
