Karlien van Jaarsveld het Curro Ka-thu Donderdagaand, 20 April 2017, kom betower met verskeie van haar treffers, onder andere Geskeurde Jeans. Die kindergehoor het haar vreeslik geniet en kon nie genoeg van haar kry nie.
Curro het 'n kompetisie geloods onder hul leerders, dat die wat die meeste kaartjies verkoop vir die vertoning, Vrydagoggend saam met die sangeres tyd kan deurbring by Kathuhari Gastehuis. Die gelukkige wenner was Chantenique Barnard.
Karlien het tydens Vrydagoggend se kuiertjie by Kathuhari Gastehuis, wat haar slaapplek asook 'n masseersessie vir haar geborg het, vertel dat sy die vertoning vreeslik geniet het, maar dat sy haar seun-tjies net vreeslik mis as sy weg reis vir 'n
vertoning. Sy het ook gesels en gesê dat sy hoop om mense te kan aanmoedig om hul roeping in die lewe aan te hou soek en dit na te jaag deur gefokus te bly op God.
Sy het lank terug al besluit dat sou haar sang nie meer gaan oor die Here nie en Hy nie eerste staan in haar lewe nie, Hy dit eerder moet wegneem van haar, want dan sing sy nie meer vir die regte redes nie. Dit is vir haar baie belangrik dat sy gefokus bly op dit wat Hy van haar versoek eerder as wat ander van haar verwag.
Karlien het ook meegedeel dat as sy nie 'n sangeres sou wees nie sou sy heel moon-tlik 'n tennisspeelster wou word. Sy hoop ook om eendag nog die Noorderligte te kan besoek, dit is een van haar “bucket list” dinge om nog te doen.

The Kgatelopele Asbestos Community has taken yet another dimension. Not only committee members slept at the John Taolo Gaetsewe district municipality, but also a large number of its old and doddering membership sacrificed to sleep in the municipal hall on April 19, 2017, total-ling about 50 people.
In an interview with the ex-mine workers, spokesperson Thabang Selo said that they are being taken for a ride over their grievances by government officials.
Following an agreement with the Premier Sylvia Lucas on March 13, 2017 that she would return to Kuruman after fourteen days, the premier requested for five days more while she was trying her best to locate and come along with advocate Richard Spoor - the man at the epicentre of the sagacious compensation expected by these former asbestos mine workers.
Since then, no update has transpired from the premier, hence the decision to haunt the district municipality where the district executive mayor is obliged to communicate with the premier. The ex-mine workers wanted a written reason why the premier has failed to inform them regarding her delay in returning to deal with the matter.
Through mutual agreement with municipal officials, the irate group resolved to disperse the following afternoon.
The ex-workers are of the opinion that if they do not pursue the case, the issue will go into oblivion from government's side, raising serious suspicions that government is in complicity with the advocate.
Advocate Spoor represented ex-mine workers and successfully went to Britain to lodge a case against former employers who eventually released allegedly R460-million towards compensation for the mine workers. He had initially suggested that 15% would be deductible from each member should he win the case. Having won the case, he paid himself and his colleagues.
The advocate allegedly assembled the ex-mine workers and told them that the money was too little and suggested the money be invested with ABSA bank from
which he would pay ex-miners after six months.
In an excerpt from an SABC news bulletin dated May 5, 2012, Mr Spoor made this statement regarding the 15-year dispute :
“. . . R320-million has already been paid out. The group that is disgruntled and unhappy is demanding compensation even
though they don't have asbestos related diseases. Their view is that, because they chose to participate in the case. I don't believe that they are part of the original group of 12 650, but they believe they are entitled just because they worked or stayed near the mines - that's not the case," explained Spoor.

ñ Tragiese voorval het op  Saterdag 15 April 2017 plaasgevind na die 2017 Tsantsabane  Local Football Associa-tion se Easter Tournament van die John Taolo Gaetsewe distrik.'n Jong speler van die Real Madridspan van Kuruman wat aan die TSALFA EFT toer-nooi deelgeneem het, Tshenolo Takala Set-logelo, is dood op pad terug na Kuruman, ongeveer 30km vanaf Postmasburg naby Lohatlha, toe die bestuurder, na wat ver-neem word, beheer oor die voertuig verloor het, en die minibus gerol het.
Vyftien spelers is ook beseer en behandel, waarvan nege in die plaaslike hospitaal op-geneem is en een na Kimberley gestuur is. Die wat ontslaan is, is per ambulans na Kuruman terug en sou daar x-straalplate in Kuruman geneem word.
Die spelers het twee nagte in die hospitaal in Postmasburg oornag, aangesien 'n dokter en radiografis nie beskikbaar was nie, word deur 'n betrokkene en woordvoerder gesê. Die beseerdes moes egter twee-twee op 'n bed slaap weens 'n tekort aan beddens.
Toe die oorledene se ouers vroeg Sondag-
oggend die hospitaal besoek en die oorle-dene se liggaam wou sien, was die lyks-kamer gesluit en die sleutel soek. Die SAPD -bevelvoerder se hulp is ook gevra met die opspoor van die sleutel wat na verneem word toe in Olifantshoek opgespoor is.
Die oorledene was 'n lid van 'n jong sok-kerspan wat vir die eerste keer deelgeneem het. Twintig spanne het in totaal aan die toer-nooi deelgeneem.
Simpatie aan die naasbestaandes en be-trokkenes van die sokkertoernooi.

Die groot aand het aangebreek vir Mejuffrou Hoërskool en meneer Sjarmant 2017 om aangewys te word. Die spanning het hoog geloop ty-dens die prag geleentheid, Donderdag-aand 20 April 2017. Baie moeite en tyd is ingesit om die 10 finaliste en saal te kon verander in 'n baie mooi geleentheid.
Die dogters het elk geleentheid gekry om vier uitrustings te kon dra en daarin te kon loop op die loopplank. Die meisies het die loopplank geopen in dieselfde pakkies, elkeen in 'n T-hemp met 'n jean, waarin hul ook 'n dans item gelewer het.  Hierna het hul iets gemakliks aangehad wat hul per-soonlikhede moes weergee. Een van die dogters het selfs met vellies aan en 'n boerbokkie onder haar arm op die loop-plank verskyn. Hul derde uitrusting moes hul self skep, 'n uitrusting vanuit herwin-bare produkte. 'n Biltong-en-droëwors uit-rusting was te siene asook verskeie taran-taalvere en ystervarkpenne op uitrustings. Hierna het die finaliste vir die Grand Finale in die pragtigste aandrokke verskyn. Die 10 finaliste het tydens die laaste item, elk saam met die finaliste vir Meneer Sjar-mant op die loopplank verskyn. Die ge-hoor was vreeslik bederf met blomme wat gegooi was en romantiese danspassies. Die drie wenners is hierna aangekondig asook meneer Sjarmant.  Die wenners was onderskeidelik: tweede prinses Rian-dra Kernekamp, eerste prinses Charmo-nix van Rooi en Mejuffrou Hoërskool 2017 is die nimlike Anria Wolstenholme, Me-neer Sjarmant is die indrukwekkende Ja-cobus Cronje.
Baie geluk aan elke finalis wat tydens die geleentheid deelgeneem het. Jul het elkeen baie mooi gelyk.

Laerskool Seodin se o/13 hokkie groep het vanaf 8 tot 12 April 2017 na Bloemfontein toe getoer en aan die Elsie Coetzer toernooi deelgeneem. Daar was 102 spanne wat deelgeneem het. Hulle het elke dag afrigting ontvang waar die meisies verskeie tegnieke en vaardighede geleer is. Daar was daagliks ook wedstryde gespeel teen verskeie skole se spanne. Seodin se hokkie bokkies het baie goed gevaar tydens die toernooi. Hulle is ook dankbaar vir hulle getroue afrigter, juffrou Juliana Steyn, wat hul  vergesel het na Bloemfontein asook hul busbestuurder was en gesorg het dat die meisies veilig kon reis.

Kedisaletsi Syra Seupe from Magojaneng village in Kuruman has a lot to tell, as Tshipi è Ntle Manganese Mine has unearthed hidden valuables within her.
She is becoming a big name since the business empowerment skills training she attained sometime last year.
She had the idea, but it needed finality in its perfection to turn it into a saleable product. A home-based mother and spouse cum baker and confectioner, gifted in cake baking and a variety of baked foods that make many functions, anniversaries and weddings notable and memorable.
In her straight forward narrative she said that she started cooking very young in the family and that passion grew with age. She then thought of going commercial in 2013, but the going was not as easy as she en-visioned.
Cutting family budgetary money trying to up her dream, did not turn her aspirations into gold. “It was after the business training that I got from this mine in 2016 that removed the darker side in the pursuit of growing my business.
“Tshipi è Ntle, with the Kuriti

April 1, 2017 (well known as April Fool's Day worldwide) was indeed a sad day for the Moletsane family. 

The family lost a young teenager aged 19 named Modisaotsile after a group of notorious young men in the village attacked him with knives, pangas, and axes. Locals agitated by the sordid incident, as well as fellow young men in the area, spent the whole day in the hunt for the culprits. The determined search resulted in identifying where individual criminals stay within the village and the situation was that of a mouse and a cat discovering one another in an open yard. 

The three suspected murderers managed to escape unharmed and handed themselves to the police that had attended to the ugly scene. Community elders also intervened to ensure there was no further bloodshed. 

April 3, 2017 a decisive meeting was convened involving the community and the police. The Cluster Head General Johan Bean and Mothibistad Station Commander Lieutenant Colonel Sanyaka also attended the meeting. The outcome of the meeting was to establish a vibrant working committee with the police that will monitor any suspicious groups within the village and the surroundings. 

There are notorious groups within Mothi-bistad, Magojaneng and Mapoteng villages that need regular surveillance and behave like tortoise - when discovered they hibernate their ugly heads only to let them protrude at a later stage when the community is relaxed for another heinous act. 

Meanwhile, the community descended on the Mothibistad magistrate court in numbers to ensure the suspects are not granted bail. The court hearing was postponed to April 12, 2017. 

The community has been intermittently raising two parallel intriguing issues in these villages leveled against the police and the justice officials. The police station's response to matters of urgency leaves a lot to be desired and will always defend itself behind the inadequacy of resources - both manpower and vehicles. 

The ends of justice favor, in most instances, the suspects who are seen moving on the streets within days committing the same crime. This is dampening the spirit of the police where a good job has been done. At the same time, the justice officials claim that dockets brought to them are too porous - lacking facts and figures or evidence – and are not water-tight enough to incarcerate the suspected culprits.

The effort to fight serious and violent crime against women and children has yielded positive results when a 20-year old man was sentenced to a total of 16 years imprisonment on different charges. 

According to Lieutenant Colonel Dima-katso Mooi from the SAPS Provincial Corporate Communication office in Kimberley, the Upington Regional Court sentenced Eldino Rhyn Dino aged 20 to twelve years imprisonment for rape with five years suspended and for sexual assault four years imprisonment, suspended for five years with conditions

The accused committed these offenses during August and December 2014. In the first incident, Dino forced an 11-year old girl to suck his private part while in the other incident Dino followed a 14-year old to the toilet and fondled her private parts. He was charged with rape on the first incident and sexual assault on the other.

The Provincial Management in the Northern Cape has welcomed this sentence and commended the investigating team for their commitment and endeavor for ensuring that offenders face the might of the law.

Huis Jan Vorster oorlede :

Mev. Anna Brunsdon (79) wat die afgelope twee jaar 'n inwoner van Huis Jan Vorster was, is oorlede. Mev. Brunsdon is in die Gariep Hospitaal in Kimberley opge-neem nadat sy eers 'n galblaas operasie ondergaan het maar later ook met ander inwendige organe probleme ondervind het. 

Mev. Brunsdon laat vier kinders agter: Mev. Lynette Stander van Postmasburg, skool-hoof by die plaaslike Laerskool, mev. Desiré Lund van Beaufortwes, prof. Alfred Brunsdon van Lichtenburg en Bennie Brunsdon van die Kaap. Ook agt kleinkinders en drie agterkleinkinders. 

 'n Roudiens word Vrydag, 21 April 2017 om 14:00 by Huis Jan Vorster vir mev. Bruns-don gehou. 

Stryd teen kanker:

Mev. Amanda Calitz (58) wat 'n lang stryd teen kanker gehad het (wat ons periodiek oor berig het) is in die Gariep Hospitaal in Kimberley oorlede waar sy opgeneem is toe sy ernstige simptome ontwikkel het weens haar kankerprobleem. Mev. Calitz het haar eerste operasie in April 2012 on-dergaan nadat kolonkanker gediagnoseer is. Sy het sedertdien gereelde behandeling ondergaan; ook nadat daar in 2016 ver-spreiding gediagnoseer is. Amanda was 'n sersant-majoor in die Weermag op Lohat-lha. Hulle het in Februarie 2017 na Da-niëlskuil verhuis omdat familie wat daar woon behulpsaam kon wees. 

 Mev. Calitz laat drie kinders agter asook 'n suster en skoonsuster in Daniëlskuil. 

 'n Roudiens word op Saterdag 22 April 2017 om 11:00 in die NG. Kerk op Post-masburg vir mev. Calitz gehou. 

 Aan die familie en vriende van mev. Anna Brunsden en mev. Amanda Calitz ons diepe meegevoel met die heengaan van geliefdes wie se plekke in hegte familie-verbintenisse nou groot leemtes laat. Mag Hy u metgesel wees in hierdie hartseer tye.

Mev. Emma Marais van Springbokstraat Postmasburg wat eers in die intensiewe sorgeenheid in Upington was met 'n bynier-probleem en later na die Gariep Hospitaal in Kimberley oorgeplaas is, is weer tuis na-dat die medikasie en behandeling in Kimberley suksesvol verloop het.  Na verneem word is sy swak maar maak goeie vordering.

Mnr. Dawid Swanepoel van Vleistraat Postmasburg wat in die Gariep Hospitaal was waar 'n gewas verwyder is, is ook tuis en die goeie nuus is dat die gewas geen gevaar inhou nie. 

 Mnr Theo Coetzee van Houtstraat  Postmasburg is ook tuis maar is nog onge-steld. Hy gaan weer in die dae vir toetse en vir 'n opvolg ondersoek na die Gariep Hospitaal in Kimberley. 

Matthew 6:6 NIV “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
Prayer is intimate communication with our Father in heaven. The Lord invites us all to pray and we are urged to pray with-out ceasing.
Jesus also frequently prayed. We read in Luke 6:12 ”One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.”
We must be careful not to pray with selfish motives, but to pray according to the will of God. Our prayers should also be offered in faith. Through our prayers God can bring about revival and change can come in our circumstances.
John Wesley wrote : “God does nothing on the earth save in answer to believing prayer.”
It is important to honour God in our prayers and acknowledge His sovereign-ty.
James 5:16 Ampl “......The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a right-eous man makes tremendous power available (dynamic in its working).”

Ons Vader stel nie net belang in ons geestelike lewe nie, maar in ons hele menswees. In ons eenheid met Christus is dit God se begeerte dat Sy kinders vrolik moet wees en die goeie van die lewe wat Hy hier op aarde vir ons gee, geniet. In Prediker 3:13 staan geskryf dat om die goeie van die lewe te geniet n gawe van God is. Ons kan die saamwees met familie en vriende geniet. Geniet die lieflike natuur om ons, uitstappies, goeie musiek, om n mooi boek te lees en om n stokperdjie te beoefen. Miskien is jou huwelik somber. In Pred. 9:9 lees ons: “ Geniet die lewe met die vrou wat jy liefhet, al die dae van jou nietige lewe wat Hy jou gegee het onder die son -....” Geniet ons dit om die Here te dien en te eer? Jesus vermaan ons in Matt. 6:16 om byvoor-beeld nie met n lang gesig te vas soos die skynheiliges nie. By eredienste is ons dikwels baie ernstig en glimlag skaars. Ons behoort dit te geniet om as gelowiges saam die Here te aanbid. Besluit vandag om elke oomblik die lewe te geniet wat God jou gee.
