Just another hole in the wall

Dirk Winterbach Street, between Kruis, Mpumula and Eland Streets
do not seem to be destined for order and the free flow of traffic,
despite all the plans that have been made so far by the authorities.
The concrete fence next to the taxi rank has enough large holes
for pedestrians to pass through, rendering the multi million rand
pedestrian bridge over the street almost obsolete. Most people
moving from the taxi rank to the business centre across the street,
prefer the holes, as it is a much shorter route, not so dangerous
because of criminals at the bottom of the stairs on the taxi rank side
of the bridge, and easier to negotiate with heavy shopping bags.
Straight crossing of the road is however no longer possible because of
the wall (concrete barrier cum flower bed) splitting the road, forcing
pedestrians to walk around it in the way of the free (and not so free
flowing) chaotic vehicle traffic.
Seeing what maneuvers somedrivers in the vehicles attempt, the
concrete barrier may have its good points, but also can contribute in
creating life threatening situations, especially if their is no traffic
enforcers around ...

The taxi at the top seemed to have no problem in side-stepping the concrete wall (cum flower
bed) and driving on the wrong side of the road to its destination (bottom), while the guy
sitting on the bonnet of his car (right) did not seem to notice...

Almost desolate - the pedestrian bridge over Dirk Winterbach

Street to the taxi rank is not nearly as big a hit as the holes in the
concrete fence (bottom).

The Beacon brand is not only famous for their chocolates, but also for
manufacturing Liquorice Allsorts and other candy that was developed
over the years. The company also branched out overseas.
From the age of 14 David Zulman who in 1989 founded Ashbury

his BSc degree but in the 1980’s decided to move to the United Kingdom.
He admits that this was partly politically motivated. “We were never Beacon Slabs

Locally, the Beacon brand was bought by Tiger Brands that developed Don’t forget Valentine’s Day!

Have a safe Valentine’s Day! The Aurum Institute ran an awareness campaign before
Valentine’s Day this week. The group aimed to create
awareness of safe sex and HIV/Aids.
They once again tested the public for HIV/Aids, provided
counselling, tested blood pressure, blood glucose levels, weight
management, gave information on sexually transmitted
infections and gave advice on teen pregnancies. They worked in
conjunction with the Department of Health.
On Monday and Tuesday they had a stall and their mobile unit
at the Castle Square complex and on Wednesday and Thursday
at the Twin City complex. The main event will be taking place
today at the Morone Centre. R50 KFC vouchers are up for grabs
to the first 50 couples who come for HIV testing.

The history of Valentine’s Day

The history of Valentine's Day — and its patron saint — is
shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long
been a month of romance. St. Valentine's Day, as we know it
today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman
tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become
associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church
recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or
Valentinus, all of whom were martyred.
One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served
during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II
decided that single men made better soldiers than those with
wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men —
his crop of potential soldiers. Valentine, realizing the injustice
of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform
marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions
were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
