Editor’s letter – 23 Feb 2018

The country is rejoicing over the wonderful rain that has fallen during the past week. Large areas of the Bushveld are wet – just when we thought it wouldn’t rain again this year.

I actually got a lump in my throat when I was driving from the farm to town on Monday morning. A man radioed in on the emergency channel to share his joy about the rain. “Our rain gauge overflowed, it is a miracle,” was all he could say.

There are also areas that have suffered damage due to the sudden amount of rain. The road to Villa Nora SAPS has washed away – I spoke to Captain Ditsela, station commander of Villa Nora SAPS, and he says they have to drive a long way now to get to the station. Now the big question is – who is responsible for the repair of that road?

It is unfortunately a fact that responsibility gets passed on too easily these days.

Nevertheless, we remain deeply grateful for the rain.

Our front page this week carries the story of a horrific discovery made by a passer-by. May the truth soon be revealed as to how the woman ended up in the water crib and how her disappearance was kept quiet for so long!

Hoërskool Ellisras’ preparation and planning for Inter High 2018 is almost something of the past. Saturday is the big day that everyone is looking forward to.

Good luck to every athlete, parent, teacher and all who are involved in Inter High 2018. May Ellisras athletes go from strength to strength.

To every advertiser who gave their support to Hoërskool Ellisras through Mogol Post, thank you very much. May the best school win!

Make sure you get next week’s Mogol Post for full feedback on Inter High 2018.

See you all on Saturday …
