Letters: Christmas twice a year

Christmas is supposed to come but once a year, but for our feral furries, Crawford Preparatory North Coast made sure it happened twice! Sally Anne Henegan, thanks so very much for incorporating a cat food donation in your Father’s Day celebration event. Not only did the Feline Feral Fund’s babies benefit, but how meaningful is…

Letters: Enthusiastic response

So much has happened since my letter was printed in the North Coast Courier last week (Appeal for Knysna animals, Courier, June 16). So many of you have truly touched my heart. Your unselfish and enthusiastic response to the appeal has been amazing, and I want to publicly thank each and every one of you….

Letters: What’s happening on N2?

I have travelled on the N2 North ever since it was decided to cut the road over the Umhloti river in two, funnelling traffic into the smaller half for north-bound traffic. Since then numerous bad accidents have happened, especially large vehicles causing backups sometime almost as far as Tiffany’s. May I enquire what is happening?…

Letters: New centre gets go-ahead

I refer to the letter “Salt Rock looking neglected” (Courier, June 16) and advise that I share the same sentiments. However, the perception that owners of the property are to blame is not correct. Besides the pot holes, the sidewalks and the lights that remain a constant challenge with the local authority, we are happy…

Letters: Rusty face of Ballito

The only negative aspect…

Letters: Police say thank you

Umhlali SAPS would like to extend our gratitude to all security personnel and emergency services in our area for their hard work and dedication when it comes to fighting crime. Often their help leads to the arrest of criminals and in turn their efforts help keep our community safe. The work they do is not…

Letters: Sad they will be jobless . . . gran relies on car guards

As a long-time resident of Ballito, I have watched the growth of what used to be a small town and marveled at the progress in a relatively short period of time. Ballito is now a major centre. Many jobs have been created, which is always wonderful, and with the opening of the Junction this has…

Angling Report

The weather was more settled last week and the only problem really was the fresh south westerly wind on Wednesday afternoon. Sea conditions were okay during the week but a groundswell moved inshore on Thursday that created some bad surf but the conditions remained fishable. Surf anglers fishing among the rocks produced most of the…

Two Bits – Do you believe in ghosts?

This was a question I was confronted with this week when a police forensics team, accompanied by a television crew, pitched up on Blythedale main beach with a mechanical digger and spades in yet another attempt to solve the mystery of six missing girls. About a year ago, I had a call from a SATV…
