Entered because charity close to her heart

VEREENIGING. – Sixteen finalists recently competed for the Mrs Style SA crown on September 17 at the St George’s Hotel in Pretoria. Mrs Style is an annual event that is successfully run by Vaal Triangle-based “Models & Dance” Unlimited’s owner, Renita Lombard. This was the 11th year Mrs Style SA was held.

Erika Myburgh (39), a therapeutic reflexologist and mother of two, won the title this year. Runner-up was 49-year-old May van Rooyen, a salon owner and onyxcologist from Pretoria and second runner-up was Vereeniging beauty Hester de Klerk (27).
For the past four years, Hester has been a primary school teacher at Milton Primary School.
The finalists came mainly from Gauteng, as well as Witbank, Nelspruit, Luckhof, Bloemfontein and even from Hartbeespoort. To compete in this glamorous event requires each finalist to be involved in a charity project to help the needy and less fortunate. Hester de Klerk was involved with the Trentico Children’s Home, Irene Home for the Mentally Disabled, Catherine Robson Foster Care, pre-primary for HIV children and the Loula Fourie “plaas skool”.
Hester heard about the Mrs Style Competition at Models Unlimited where she herself is a model and, as charity is close to her heart, she decided to enter.
“I saw it as an opportunity to get more involved where help is needed,” she says. Hester is married and doesn’t have her own children yet, but her work keeps her busy. She has even taken one of her pupils, who was rejected by his family, under her wing.
She would like to encourage all women to get involved in charity work. “It doesn’t necessarily have to be something big, just as much as you can do and afford. Every little bit helps,” she says.

Municipal sewage overflowing into ecopark and Vaal

SASOLBURG. – Controversy around the alleged polluting of the Riemland Ecopark is flawed.
So says Gino Alberts, spokesperson for the Council of the Metsimaholo Local Municipality.

Mr Alberts says the most vital pump of the sewerage network had fallen afoul of criminal activity earlier this year. The pump and essential cables were stolen and the place has been closed to the public since then. Its closure is not a recent development.
The pump and cables “were replaced but we haven’t wanted the ecopark to open since that time because we are waiting for the rain,” says Alberts.
Alberts says spillage went “all over the place” and posed such a health hazard that the park could not be opened until rains had thoroughly cleaned out the area.
“Opening now would mean exposing our people to contamination and we’re a very responsible municipality that has the safety of our poeple at heart,” he says.
This follows news that municipal sewage from Metsimaholo had closed the Riemland Ecopark on Heritage Day, September 24.
A big billboard apologising to the public said the facility was closed due to a municipal overflow of sewage.
Local photographer and bird-fancier Roelof Coertze says: “I became really angry because on April 17 municipal sewage also overflowed from the pumps in the ecopark into the small streams through the Abrahamsrust picnic spot and into the Vaal River.”
Mr Coertze – according to Alberts – was probably referring to the period from when the facility has been closed.
The Riemland Ecopark is north of Sasolburg in the Free State and west of Vaalpark, about 80 km south of Johannesburg.
Coertze believes the sewage is flowing into the nature reserve,placing animals and birds at ongoing risk.
“The sewage is also running into the Vaal River at Vanderbijlpark,” says Coertze, “running to Parys and other downstream towns where people have to drink it.”

Vaal se water is skoonste in ‘n lang tyd – SAVE

VANDERBIJLPARK. – Die Vaalrivier bokant die Barrage is tans die skoonste wat dit in ‘n lang tyd was en hou nie gevaar vir watersport-geesdriftiges in nie. Di├⌐ jongste inligting weerspreek die berig in verlede week se Vaalweekblad, wat gebaseer was op ou inligting van twee jaar gelede nadat dit onlangs per abuis weer deur die omgewingsorganisasie, SAVE aan die media uitgereik is. Hoewel SAVE die verouderde persverklaring kort na uitreiking teruggetrek het, was die inligting toe reeds in Vaalweekblad se nuusstelsel verwerk.

Die nuutste feite, sê adv. Lötter Wepener, voorsitter van SAVE, is dat Emfuleni die afgelope twee jaar besondere moeite gedoen het om te verseker dat afvalwater na behore gesuiwer word voordat dit in die Rietspruit vrygelaat word.
Volgens Wepener het lede van SAVE onlangs op uitnodiging van Metsi a Lekoa die Rietspruit-watersuiweringswerke ge├»nspekteer en bevind dat 80% tot 90% van die werke voltooid en in ‘n volkome werkende toestand is.
“Die gedeeltes wat nog klaargemaak moet word, sal net bykomende kapasiteit daarstel vir die munisipaliteit om groter volumes afvalwater te hanteer,” s├¬ Wepener.
“Die Vaalrivier bokant die Barrage is heeltemal veilig vir watersport maar ek is nog skepties oor die watergehalte van Loch Vaal en die sediment wat deur die jare in die Loch opgebou het,” s├¬ hy.
Hoewel Wepener baie lof het vir Emfuleni en in besonder vir raadslid Sam Tshabalala wat prioriteit-aandag aan die watersituasie gee, het hy geen goeie woord oor die watergehalte van die Vaalrivier in die Parys-gebied nie. Tydens Vaalweekblad se onderhoud met hom verlede week, het hy die watergehalte van die rivier daar as “chaoties” bestempel.
Save het op 17 September reeds ‘n hofbevel in die Bloemfonteinse hooggeregshof teen die Ngwathi-munisipaliteit gekry om die uitpomp van rou riool in die Vaalrivier by Parys onmiddellik te staak.

Does your will really say what you mean?

Wills often cause a problem if they are not worded clearly. Berrie Botha, chief executive of Sanlam Trust, explains the importance of a properly drawn-up will. Good intentions ΓÇô or the way in which we express them ΓÇô also play a role in the drafting of a will. Wills are known to have caused rifts in families, or resulted in someoneΓÇÖs children being estranged. Wills have even led to bitter lawsuits ΓÇô often because the person who died had not expressed his or her wishes clearly and unambiguously.

Consider this example. In his will, John wrote: ΓÇ£I bequeath my boat to my son and the remainder of my estate to my daughter.ΓÇ¥ The result is that his children, who have been at loggerheads since they were small, are at it again because the daughter believes the trailer for the boat belongs to her, as her father stipulated that everything except the boat was hers.
Your will should give you peace of mind. That is why it is vital that you understand the consequences of this document. Good intentions alone are simply not enough. Remember, it is your last wish on earth and therefore it is important for it to be practicable. In short, it must be worded in such a way that your intentions are very clear.
Another problem with regard to wills is that people often do not amend them ΓÇô just as if nothing has changed during their lives!
For example: A couple buys a house in a certain town and in his will the husband leaves the house to his wife (not the mother of his children): “I bequeath the house at 4 Hill Street in Heuweldorp to my wife ΓǪ and the remainder of my estate to my children.”
Shortly afterwards they sell the house and move to another town. The will remains unchanged.
The husband dies and his children, who never liked their stepmother, contend that the new house to which the couple had moved does not belong to the wife as their father had specifically left the old house in Heuweldorp to her, and not the new house. It is then up to the surviving spouse to prove that it was not the intention of the deceased to revoke the bequest and that she is entitled to the replacement house.
A few words ΓÇô an accurate description ΓÇô can therefore have a major impact on the consequences of your will. So donΓÇÖt underestimate the importance of your will. Rather take some time to get expert advice so your will is drawn up in such a way that there is no doubt about your real intentions.
Remember, you will no longer be there and your will must speak for you.
* If you have any enquiries, please contact Berrie Botha at 021 947 4824 or 082 440 2763.

Motorverkope beste in twee jaar

Die verkope van nuwe voertuie het in Augustus die hoogste vlak in 28 maande bereik, maar kenners waarsku dat stakings en die groenbelasting op nuwe motors die vooruitsigte vir die res van die jaar minder rooskleurig laat lyk.

Die Nasionale Vereniging van Voertuigvervaardigers (Naamsa) se jongste verkoopsyfers wat verlede week uitgereik is, toon aan dat daar in Augustus 46 377 nuwe voertuie in Suid-Afrika verkoop is – dit is sowat 36,9% meer as in Augustus verlede jaar.
Verkope was in Augustus ook 12,2% hoër as in Julie vanjaar.
Augustus se verkope was nie net die hoogste in die jaar nie, maar ook die hoogste in meer as twee jaar.
Die skerp toename in verkope word onder meer daaraan toegeskryf dat kopers voertuie wou koop voordat die groen-belasting op nuwe motors, wat op 1 September in werking getree het, motorpryse opgejaag het.
Dié nuwe belasting word gehef op die hoeveelheid koolsuurgas wat motors in hul uitlaatgasse vrystel en word by die prys van die voertuie gevoeg.
Motorverhuurders het hul vlote aangevul ná die Wêreldbeker-sokkertoernooi terwyl die bekendstelling van nuwe modelle, verkope ook ondersteun het.
Mnr. Sydney Soundy, hoof van Absa Voertuig- en Batefinansiering, sê egter hy verwag nie dat Augustus se verkope vanjaar getroef sal word nie.
ΓÇ£Ons meen dat verkope van September af gaan daal, onder meer weens die sloerende stakings. Dit is veral die staatsdienswerkers se staking wat motorverkope gaan seermaak.ΓÇ¥
Soundy sê die staat het die meeste werknemers in die land.
“Dié mense staak al langer as drie weke, wat beteken hulle het reeds ’n maand se salaris verloor. Ons verwag dit gaan ’n impak hê op nuwe-motorverkope sowel as die betaling van bestaande paaiemente in die maande vorentoe.”
Mnr. Brand Pretorius, uitvoerende hoof van McCarthy, sê die staking in die motorbedryf kan in die maande wat voorlê tot ’n tekort aan voorraad lei as ’n gebrek aan bande en komponente weens stakings in dié segmente van die bedryf die vervaardiging van nuwe motors tot stilstand bring of vertraag.

Alfa Romeo celebrates more than 100 years of motoring passion!

In celebration of Alfa RomeoΓÇÖs rich 100-year history during which more than 70 models were created, the Italian company is pleased to welcome a very special version of the Alfa Romeo GT 3.2, aptly named the GT Limited Edition.

A fitting swan song for this iconic model, only 30 of these Bertone-designed masterpieces are destined for South Africa, each one branded with a number to mark its individuality. At the heart of this model is AlfaΓÇÖs powerful and sonorous 176 kW 3.2-litre Quadcam V6 ΓÇô this catapults the GT to 100 km/h in just 6,7 seconds and on to a top speed of 243 km/h, while maintaining a more-than-respectable combined fuel-consumption figure of 12,4 l/100km. Some of the main spec highlights are: six airbags; ABS with EBD; traction control (ASR) and Stability Control (ESP); remote central locking; fully adjustable steering wheel with remote audio controls; trip computer; front armrest with recess; dual-zone climate control; cruise control and Bose Hi-Fi system.
Brimming with additional content and available at the same sticker price as the standard 3.2 ΓÇô R395 100 (including VAT, excluding Co2 emissions tax*) ΓÇô owning a true collectorΓÇÖs item has never been so enticingly accessible. (As is applicable to the rest of the GT range, the new Alfa Romeo GT Limited Edition comes with a 3-year/60 000km maintenance plan and features service intervals of 20 000 km.)

*Including emissions tax = R410 063

PASOP VIR GEESTE IN KAPSULES

“Geliefdes, glo nie elke gees nie, maar stel die geeste op die proef of hulle uit God is, want baie valse profete het in die w├¬reld uitgegaanΓÇ¥ (1 Joh. 4:1, 1953). Johannes waarsku nie teen iets soos voorvadergeeste nie, maar teen mense se idees. Ons moenie mense se idees, ideologie├½ en leerstellings vir soetkoek opeet nie, maar dit deeglik ondersoek en beoordeel, want baie daarvan is teen God se wil (vgl. 1 Tes. 5:20-21). Dit is egter vir ons baie moeilik om idees krities te ondersoek as dit verpak is in begrippe of slagspreuke (slogans) wat goed klink.

ΓÇÿn Kapsule is gevul met baie klein korreltjies, wat die eintlike medikasie bevat. Dieselfde geld ook vir sekere begrippe: Die begrip is ΓÇÿn ΓÇ£dopΓÇ¥ waarin ΓÇÿn groot hoeveelheid betekenisse opgesluit kan wees. Dikwels sluk ons die begrip-kapsule sonder om eers bewus te wees van die verborge betekenisse wat daarin vervat is. Baie politici, vakbondleiers, predikers en openbare sprekers maak doelbewus misbruik van mense se neiging om te sluk sonder om te dink. Hulle verpak hulle betekenisgelade boodskappe in ΓÇÿn mooi en eenvoudige slagkreet, en vereis dan dat mense net moet sluk sonder om krities na die verskillende fasette van die begrip te kyk.

ΓÇ£ApartheidΓÇ¥ is een van die begrippe in ons geskiedenis wat deur baie blankes gesluk is, sonder om te kyk watter ΓÇ£geesteΓÇ¥ in die ΓÇ£kapsuleΓÇ¥ versteek is. Vir swart mense is hierdie begrip egter geassosieer met onreg, diskriminasie, vernedering en hartseer.

Ons moet katvoet loop vir die ΓÇ£geesteΓÇ¥ in sommige begrip-kapsules. Wie Christus wil volg, mag nie begrippe of slagspreuke onnadenkend en onkrities aanvaar nie!

Eating for two adage inaccurate

SASOLBURG. ΓÇô The old adage that a mother-to-be is eating for two is not quite accurate as excessive intake of food may result in the onset of weight-problems while still not providing the necessary nutrients for development of the baby.

What the mother-to-be eats affects the development of the babyΓÇÖs teeth. Primary tooth development has already started by the third month of pregnancy, and permanent teeth begin to form several months before birth. Vitamin A helps to develop the tooth enamel and vitamin C is important in the formation of the inner tooth structure. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. For optimum development of teeth and bones it is necessary that sufficient sources of calcium are available in the diet, and that the body has the ability to absorb the calcium into the bloodstream.
Calcium supplements have been shown to be largely excreted unabsorbed in the faeces. Calcium seems to be better absorbed if it is available in the diet rather than in pill form. Good sources of calcium are dairy products and canned pilchards and sardines with the cooked bones included in the can mashed into the fish and eaten. It is not essential to drink gallons of milk or to eat tons of cheese and tinned fish. Three quarters of a glass of milk, preferably low fat, is adequate.

Rudie en Corlea ongetwyfeld die gewildste sangpaar

Die romantiese sangpaar Rudi Claase en Corlea Botha is tans ongetwyfeld die gewildste duetpaar in Suid-Afrika – en nie sonder rede nie… Die liefe blom nie net in die “regte” lewe vir diΓÇÜ paartjie nie, maar hul stemme vul mekaar so uitstekend aan dat hulle die liefde werklik op ‘n ongekende manier besing.

Min Vaalweekbladlesers weet dalk dat Rudi oorspronklik ‘n Vaaldriehoeker is, wat hier grootgeword en skoolgegaan het.
Hy het reeds op die ouderdom van vier jaar begin klavierspeel en van 12-jarige ouderdom af begin sing. Hoewel hy ‘n kranige klavierspeler is, is dit eintlik sy talent om liedjies te skryf wat hom aanvanklik op die hoogste sport van die musiekbedryf laat stelling inneem het.
Rudi het reeds meer as 4 500 liedjies vir van ons land se topsangers geskryf. Verlede jaar het hy die Tempo-toekening gekry vir die lied wat hy vir Juanita du Plessis geskryf het, Tussen Woorde, wat haar verkope verby dubbelplatinum gestoot het.
Net soos Rudi, was musiek en sang reeds van geboorte af in Corlea se bloed. Sy het op vyfjarige ouderdom reeds begin sing. Sedert hulle ‘n paar jaar gelede as sangpaar begin optree het, is daar net geen keer aan hul sukses nie. Die verkope van hul twee CD’s is reeds verby dubbelplatinum.
Rudi en Corlea het vanjaar met twee Tempo-toekennings weggestap en is ook genomineer vir twee toekenings van Rapport se Vonk.
Hul nuwe CD word November versprei en die DVD word einde vandeesmaand beskikbaar gestel.
Hulle nuwe program propvol nuwe liedjies word op 27 September in die Vereenigingse Stadskouburg aangebied. Dit beloof om ‘n vertoning te wees wat niemand mag misloop nie. Kaartjies is beskikbaar by Computicket.
As in aanmerking geneem word dat Rudi en Corlea volbespreek is tot Mei aanstaande jaar, gaan dit voorwaar vir plaaslike musiekliefhebbers ‘n voorreg wees om hulle op 27 September te sien optree. Die tweestuks gaan later volgende jaar na Europa vir optredes daar.

Twee gelukkige Vaalweekblad-lesers kan dubbelkaartjies na hul vertoning op 27 September wen. SMS net die datum wanneer Rudi en Corlea in Vereeniging optree, sowel as jou naam en van na 41913. SMS’e kos R1-50.

Rokers se tande

SASOLBURG. – Rook en goeie mondhigi├½ne is eenvoudig nie maats nie omdat rook nie net lelike bruin vlekke en taai teerneerslae op tande laat nie, dit veroorsaak ook slegte asem. Navorsing het aangetoon dat rokers twee tot drie keer meer geneig is tot beenverlies en meer tande verloor as nie rokers. ΓÇÿn Rooi verhemelte is ook nie ongewoon nie ΓÇô dit is inflammasie as gevolg van die ho├½ rooktemperature. Dit veroorsaak ook tandvleissiekte.

Studies het verder aangetoon dat tandinplantate minder suksesvol by rokers is en dat rook die hoofoorsaak van mondkanker is. Tweedehandse rook is ook gevaarlik, veral by kinders, ondat die rook wat ingeasem word die ontwikkeling van permanente tande kan beïnvloed.
Diegene wat die gewoonte afleer, die risiko om kanker te ontwikkel verminder word. As jy vir tien jaar opgehou het met rook, is jou risiko dieselfde as die van ‘n nie roker. Dit is nie beter om tabak te pruim of te snuif nie. Baie mense begryp nie dat om tabak te pruim of te snuif, net so skadelik kan wees as ander vorms van tabak nie. Dit kan veral kanker van die wange, tandvleis en keel veroorsaak. Na net ‘n paar weke van snuif kan die gevolge gesien word in gebarste lippe en tandvleis, seertjies en wit kolle. Volgens kenners is dit hierdie seertjies wat kankeragtig kan word. Pruim en snuif kan ook slegte asem, tandverlies en smaak- en reukverlies tot gevolg hê. Hierdie produkte vlek ook jou tande en veroorsaak dat jy uitermate kwyl – dit kan lei tot slegte gewoontes soos spoeg.
Geringe tandheelkundige en mondkwale kan vinnig tot ernstige problem ontwikkel. Wit en rooi seertjies kan in die mond, op die lippe, tandvleis en/of die wange voorkom. Hierdie seertjies kan kankeragtig word en staan bekend as leukoplakia. Mondkanker is moeilik om te genees en versprei vinnig deur die liggaam.

Jy kán n mooier glimlag hê

SASOLBURG. ΓÇô Danksy tegnologie is dit nie net Hollywood akteurs wat met spierwit, volmaakte tande kan spog nie.
Deesdae kan tandartse tande vervang, tande witter maak en afgesplinterde tande herstel deur ΓÇÿn verskeidenheid van kosmetiese tandheelkundige prosedures wat tandbleiking, porseleinvenere, implantante, binding en kroon- en brugwerk insluit.
Daar word ook al hoe meer klem gelê op die uiterlike en al hoe meer mense verkies om hul voorkoms te verbeter deur bloot ’n mooier glimlag met behulp van kosmetiese tandheelkunde.

Terwyl die meeste ander gebiede van tandheelkunde gerig is op die herstel van tandheelkundige probleme, is die fokus van kosmetiese tandheelkunde suiwer esteties van aard ΓÇô en verrig boonop wondere vir selfvertroue!
Tandartse kan gebruik maak van ΓÇÖn verskeidenheid tegnieke om ΓÇÖn pragtige glimlag te verseker.
Algemene kosmetiese tandheelkundige opsies sluit in: Tandbleiking – Daar is drie maniere waarop tande witter gemaak kan word: laserbehandeling, spreekkamerbleiking en tuisbleiking. Bleiking in die spreekkamer – Gekonsentreerde bleikmiddels word in die spreekkamer aangewend. Porseleinvenere – ΓÇÖn Keramiekdop word aan die voorkant van die tand aangebring vir witter tande. Tandheelkundige implantate – ΓÇÖn Kunstand word gebruik om ΓÇÖn natuurlike tand te vervang. Binding – ΓÇÖn Tandkleurige materiaal word aan die tand gewend. Dit kan gepoets en gevorm word om soos die res van die tande te lyk. Tandheelkundige krone – ΓÇÖn Dop word gebruik om verrotte of stukkende tande te herstel. Die dop word gevorm om soos jou tande te lyk. Br├╗e – Twee of meer krone dra een of meer valstande om ΓÇÖn opening te vul waar daar ΓÇÖn tand kort kom. Die krone word op die tande aan weerskante van die opening geplaas en deur die valstand, wat netjies in die opening pas, verbind.
Behalwe bogenoemde prosedures, is daar nog ’n onderafdeling van kosmetiese tandheelkunde, naamlik ortodontiek (draadjies). Dit word deur ortodontiste gebruik om skewe tande reguit te maak of ’n onreëlmatige gebit te herstel.
