EDUCATION SET TO BE ESSENTIAL SERVICE
PUPIL transport contract that was terminated will be sorted out in the next financial year (April), teachers not getting salaries in time, government refuses to employ more teachers where needed. Who's fooling who?
SELL BY DATE
I SEE that Allan Zinn in his attack on untransformed rugby is also another one without the backbone to say anything about our all black soccer team.
ALLAN Zinn, a well researched, honest article.
DESTITUTE MAN NEEDS WORK
IS there anyone who can give work to Ayand, who is destitute? He lives alone in Motherwell. His mom and dad are dead, and a brother committed suicide. He really needs help. Phone 073-544-5194.
BAIL APPLICATION IN ASSAULT CASE
ATTORNEY Ryno Scholtz, did Shireen Ballan beat herself up? Whether she was drunk or not is immaterial! Is that pacifist Brent Cunningham's defence?
THE state must not drop the case against Cunningham! This is one that the state must not lose!
HOW can your journalist, Kathryn Kimberley, refer to Cunningham as a "youngster"?

REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
TO DR West, it was advocate Jooste's duty, as an officer of the court, to disclose to the judge all previously reported decisions of a similar nature to assist the judge to make his finding regarding the amount of damages due to the plaintiff. The comparison was therefore very relevant, although the facts of the two matters differ as correctly pointed out by you.
PC LOXTON, surely you could smell the sarcasm in Voetganger's message about pedestrian crossings on N2 – duh?
PC LOXTON, not everybody knows road rules. Your next of kin will be knocked down one day, you'll be human and know what sympathy is.
IN reply to the letter from D Gray asking if councillors have cars as they don't seem to see anything wrong in their area till it is pointed out to them, well I have a huge list and it's getting bigger and bigger which I will be presenting to the councillor in my area just before the elections next year.
SCALEMASTER, it was not a stupid question to put in the newspaper. Nobody answers at that number. It seems to me you have nothing better to do.
TO Noelene Jorgensen, how clever of you to get your tickets online, but do not assume everybody has internet access, a printer and a credit card. Get real.
THE number of the fire victim in Forest Hill is 076-860-7389.
GREAT metro service: D Cornish should not have named the helpful women, for they stand a chance of being reprimanded for doing too good a job. Hee hee.
CONCERNED cricket administrator, what about the white players who are not picked on merit? There are bucket loads of white players who play for white clubs but don't get looked at because they are white! Is that not racism? You also mention coloured people were at the forefront in the struggle – does that mean they must get picked before white and black players? Think before you speak out.
WELL DONE FOR BLOWING WHISTLE
WELL done to the motorist for blowing the whistle on a traffic officer demanding a bribe. I would have done the same! It was once reported that traffic officials were writing out about one fine per day, which is way too little considering the number of motorists committing traffic offences. If they are hardly writing out fines, then they must be demanding bribes and so illegally filling their pockets with stolen money. It is shocking to see how overweight and obese some of these traffic cops are, which in itself is no good for their health, as sooner or later they may become ill with diseases like diabetes, hypertension and cardiac failure. Where is the discipline, and the weight and fitness control?

METRO MANAGER SAGA
GRAHAM Richards must be so relieved to be free of the metro offices of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the Sons of Ham.
GRAHAM Richards, please come back.
TO help keep drugs off the street starts with the government at the border crossings. Also community members must "brand" people who they suspect are selling drugs.
