Proposed arts body welcome in the Bay FAME and notoriety, it might be argued, are not reserved exclusively for the living!
Zim has secret WE should asked ourselves: what does Zimbabwe do, because its crime is low, its education is better, its rhino population is growing, its soccer team made it to the Chan quarterfinals and it does not use foreign nationals in its national teams.
No self-promotion My theory is a true giver does not tell people what he/she does, they do it for the right reasons, as it should come from the heart, not to feed their egos or for publicity reasons.
Doggy do mars beach walk I HAD the opportunity to take a trot along Port Elizabeth's magnificent beachfront - wow, what a lovely stretch of sea and beach you have there.
Thank you to hard-working firefighters WE have had the most scary bush fires in the Sherwood/Kamma Park area which started last week. However on Friday there were fires burning all at the same time in very dry wooded areas (along the Guinea Fowl Trail/ Baakens River).
Readers' views via SMS JACOB Zuma says people who leave the ANC will attract the wrath of the ancestors. I thought he becoming president was already a manifestation of the ancestors' displeasure.
Metro needs strong leadership MY wife and I were born, bred and educated in the Eastern Cape. After living in Cape Town for 15 years, we moved back to Port Elizabeth for 19 memorable years until I retired from Volkswagen SA three years ago.
Worse than a monster THE man who is responsible for the attack on the nine-year-old ("Another horror child attack", January 21) is worse than a monster. Calling him a monster insults the monsters.
Where to find the 'good men' I'LL always think of her as "the goddess". Reclined on a couch, with classical features and grace, she looked like the sculpture of a Roman woman.
Child dying in toilet amounts to his murder WE hear almost daily about how pupils around South Africa are being, or have been, disadvantaged by our educational departments. How pupils are forced to sit in the boiling sun as there are no classrooms for them at their schools, or that their schools have been vandalised and stripped by thieves, or how the continual shortage of teachers does not allow for quality education. This list goes on and on.
No toilets after 4pm CAN somebody please advise why the ablution facilities at the pier in Summerstrand are locked after 4pm on weekends at the so-called Blue Flag beach?
Readers' views via SMS WHILE the buses are lame the taxis at the Boardwalk/Hobie Beach are now two in a row often. Where are traffic authorities or are they also scared of the taxi bosses? People will keep breaking the law if there are no consequences.
Are firms allowed to dump in the lake? Are firms allowed to dump in the lake? IT has come to our attention that factories in the area may discharge any unwanted waste in the North End Lake.
Readers' views via SMS MORE primary schools must be built in all northern areas suburbs! None of the leaders are fighting for new schools. All they do is talk and talk every year!
All responsible for own safety WITH reference to The Herald article on the Walmer Boulevard accident in which a woman was injured ("'Take bumps away before someone dies'", January 22), the picture published in Monday's Herald shows the car.
Three taps for 2000 Missionvale people THE catastrophic water crisis that unfolded in Madibeng, North West province last week is not unique to that municipality. The ANC-led Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has its own examples of poor service delivery of water to our communities.
Safa must show PSL who's boss LOTS has been said about Bafana Bafana's current performance. Our minister of sport should know better than to launch a scathing attack on the players in public.
Minister has no right to insult players WHERE does Minister Fikile Mbalula get off insulting our heroes and role models, labelling them "a bunch of losers and useless individuals who have no respect for their country"? Who does he think he is?
Enriched by our day at Bayworld Enriched by our day at Bayworld MY three girls and I had a very positive experience at Bayworld during the latter part of the school holidays. We arrived at around 10am and walked through the reptile area which was well marked and clean - as seen in the photo, the dinosaur displays were a huge (pun intended) hit.
Thanks for good job WE, as citizens in Port Elizabeth, are quick to complain but almost never say thank you when employees of the municipality do what we expect from them. Last week I called the electricity department to inform it that the streetlights in Dyke Road, Algoa Park were burning day and night.
Trash mars SA beaches I AM visiting South Africa, and have been appalled by the beauty spots and beaches being littered with people's rubbish. It's such a beautiful country, why don't South Africans take their rubbish home?
Readers' views via SMS IT is very unfair of Fikile Mbalula to attack Bafana Bafana when they failed to go through to the quarter-finals. How many times have they, as the government, failed to deliver simple basic services to us?
Concentrate on development Concentrate on development WHAT a true statement the Minister of Sport made regarding the Bafana players: "a bunch of losers", unbearable, useless individuals. Did he ever play soccer on a higher level?
Where's promised 'better life for all' IT was most distressing to see on TV Grade 1 pupils sitting in the hot sun outside a small school in Tsolo, sweat pouring down their faces and with only a small amount of water to refresh them during break.
Start fight now against drugs THIS cancer in society is getting totally out of hand. Soon we won't be able to take our city back from the scum of drug lords, pushers and dealers.
Disappointed by poor festive show at Happy Valley Disappointed by poor festive show at Happy Valley WORDS cannot describe how disappointed we were on a family visit one evening during the holiday season to Happy Valley.
Readers' views via SMS IT's a disgrace busting a dagga farm when other countries and the world are poised to decriminalise God's miracle plant. Go solve real crime.
