ANOTHER DEATH AT BRIDGE
WHEN victim No78 jumped at Van Stadens, I wrote to the newspaper pleading for the powers that be to put up an electric fence. Now it is No85. Eish.
HEROES AND HOOLIGANS
KYLE Main is my hero.
HARRY Vermaak should be given a citizen's award for assisting to save a man from committing suicide.
THE hooligan of the day should go to The Herald and its editors for having way too many "matter of facts" and way too few "correct facts".
MONEY AVAILABLE FOR LUXURIES
IT seems the government doesn't have money for repairs of roads, police cars, education and many more, but it has money for new cars and housing upgrades.
NOW R200-million of taxpayers' money on a kraal? Jacob Zuma is not a "president", he is a parasite and so is his "family".
WHY NO NEWS OF WORLD GOLF EVENT?
I CAN'T believe that your newspaper has no report on the world golf tournament being played in Turkey. Charl Schwartzel is doing so well, beating Tiger Woods (world No2) and Rory McIlroy (world No1).
APOLOGIES for that omission. See the sports pages today for the latest news on this tour event. – Neale Emslie, The Herald sports editor
SCHOEMAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN OLYMPICS
CAN anyone tell me why cyclist Anriette Schoeman was not at the 2012 London Olympics? She could have won us another medal for sure.

RAIN ON WASHING DAY
IS there something wrong with washing machines in the Port Elizabeth area? Every time I switch it on, it rains!
CURRIE CUP PLAYOFF PANIC
WHY are the Cheetahs panicking? They haven't even been relegated yet. Maybe because they are only getting two Springboks back and they looked mediocre the whole season.
REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
ED Gutsche, well said. I agree 100%. JZ nothing but a womanising exploiter of state funds.

ELAINE, regarding the baboon shot, what's so great about a human?
MKULULI Kobe, if only the people all had brains and thought like you ("Had enough of Zuma presidency", October 11).
JAZ says he "won" only R450000. Shame, I "won" R1-million. In order to claim my prize I merely have to contact a Mr Gabers. Ha! Ha!
TO Trevor B, I can think of many more hooligans that should be taken care of in the same way.

FORMER CONVICT SERVES IN HOSPITAL
SO that's the level the Department of Health has got to now, knowingly employing a disease-carrying ex-con as a chief medical officer! Stunning news.
LOCAL FANS SUPPORT BIG CLUBS
THE Eastern Cape will never have its own PSL soccer club as long we favour Chiefs, Pirates, etc. What happened to Bucks, Michau Warriors and Bay United? Let's support our EC clubs.
CYCLISTS NEED TO HEED RULES OF ROAD
THESE people on their bicycles think they can just ride where they like in the road. Maybe they think they are invincible.
RUBBISH WEDNESDAY NIGHT VIEWING
THE SABC has decided that Wednesday night prime time viewing required perking up from 8 to 10pm by broadcasting the biggest rubbish yet seen on TV3! Why pay licence fees for c**p.
OUTCRY OVER ACCUSED'S T-SHIRT
ANDRÉ Gouws had obviously been wearing that T-shirt since Saturday night. When was he supposed to change his clothes?
VAN PARKED OUTSIDE HOUSE ALL MORNING
THERE are not enough cop vans, but one was parked behind a locked gate in Van der Graaf Street all morning and often.
