“There’s something about
the flower that grows
through the rocks, the
pavement; through logs and
stone or brick walls… all
roses are beautiful; but the
rose that emerges
unexpectedly through the
asphalt has a beauty of soul.
The flower that reaches
through the brokenness of
the wall has a beauty of
spirit. You stop to look and
not only to look but to
cherish! Somewhere along
its journey, it decided that it
would reach for what was
unseen, keep going in the
direction of something that
wasn’t felt, it decided that it
would be. That it would
become. And it did. And
there is something
irreplaceable about that.” …read more

Cinderella wants to go to
the ball, but her wicked
stepmother won’t let her.
As Cinderella sits crying
in the garden, her fairy
godmother appears, and
promises to provide
Cinderella with everything
she needs to go to the
ball, but only on two
conditions.
“First, you must wear a
diaphragm.” Cinderella
agrees.
“What’s the second
condition?”
“You must be home by 2
a.m. Any later, and your
diaphragm will turn into a
pumpkin.”
Cinderella agrees to be
home by 2 a.m. The
appointed hour comes
and goes, and Cinderella
doesn’t show up.
Finally, at 5 a.m.,
Cinderella shows up,
looking love-struck and
very satisfied.
“Where have you been?”
demands the
fairygodmother. “Your
diaphragm was supposed
to turn into a pumpkin
three hours ago!!!”
“I met a prince, Fairy
Godmother. He took care
of everything.”
“I know of no prince with
that kind of power! Tell
me his name!”
“I can’t remember,
exactly… Peter Peter,
something or other…” …read more

Kimberley man busted with dagga around my neck of the woods…

NORTHERN CAPE – A man has been arrested in Kimberley after police found dagga valued at nearly half a million rand in his possession.

Police received a tip off from the public that the man was transporting drugs in a white Toyota Tazz.

The vehicle was stopped and searched by police officials.

Close to 90 kilograms of marijuana was found in black refuse bags in the vehicle.

The police’s Donald Mdluli says, “The 30-year-old was immediately arrested, his dagga was confiscated. He is facing a charge of possession of dagga and is expected to appear before the Kimberley Magistrates Court on Monday.”

Noupoort Rehab centre forces patient to sleep on cold winter floor with no heat...

Noupoort Rehab centre forces patient to sleep on cold winter floor with no heat or blankets under rule of the Hitler of Noupoort

Johannesburg – Dressed only in a pair of underpants, curled up in the corner of a room without lights, windows, a toilet or proper ventilation, a male resident of the controversial Noupoort Christian Care Centre, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, tries to shelter himself from the freezing night, City Press reports.

A former pastor of the centre, who is described by some residents and parents as the “Hitler of Noupoort”, leaked this shocking security photograph to City Press’ sister publication Rapport last week.

The photo, taken on 8 May, shows how the man confined in the rehabilitation centre in the Northern Cape Karoo town had to undergo the most “brutal” and “feared” punishment – isolation in a cell that is known as “the cage”.

Six independent sources confirmed the cage is used to punish those who break the rules, sometimes for as long as eight days.

When a person is detained in the cage, they are not permitted to sit or lie down between 04:00 and 22:00.

To enforce this, a “Satan’s mixture” of Jik, Jeyes Fluid and Handy Andy gets poured on to the floor, burning any skin that comes into contact with it.

The cell is also located above the centre’s walk-in freezer, which means temperatures drop well below freezing in winter.

Detainees are not given any blankets or mattresses and are forced to use a bucket or a sawn-off 2-litre plastic cool drink bottle as a toilet.

Pastor Gerald Snyman, who is from Krugersdorp and was the manager of Noupoort for 10 months, leaked a dossier of security photos after he was suspended three weeks ago.

Pastor Sophos Nissiotis is the director of the care centre and Snyman’s former boss, whom he claims “sits in his luxury home in Jeffreys Bay, which is paid for by addicts, where he lies on his bed all day and dictates [what must happen], like a cult figure”.

He said: “I had to do terrible things. One night, I forced a girl against a wall and tied her with sheets because she refused to cooperate. She screamed so loudly, the police eventually came around.”

Nissiotis told City Press that no parent ever complained to him about the cruel treatment they received at Snyman’s hands.

“As we have frequently pointed out in the past, Noupoort has never been found guilty of a criminal offence.”

He also referred to various letters, newspaper reports and website updates from parents who had praised the centre and its work in the past. One of the parents, Marlize Clarke, writes that her son was recently held in the programme, but that she still had faith in the Noupoort system.

“I salute you and all the hard work that you do for a system that works and the fact that you care enough to get my child back on his feet.”

Siphokazi Ndlovu* sent her eldest child to Noupoort for help with his dagga addiction, but told City Press he “came back more broken” than when she sent him there.

Despite reports from the centre that he was doing fine, Ndlovu said she realised something was wrong soon after her son arrived. “He told me that they sometimes spoke to him in Afrikaans, even though he told them he didn’t understand.”

Noupoort kicked Ndlovu’s son out, but she says she still hasn’t been repaid the R50 000 she forked out for the programme.

“My child is now on antidepressants and has started smoking dagga again. He is bitter and angry. He hasn’t slept through a single night.”

A man walked out to the
street and caught a taxi
just going by. He got into
the taxi, and the cabbie
said, “Perfect timing.
You’re just like Ryan”

Passenger: “Who?”

Cabbie: “Ryan Jay
Robinson. He’s a guy who
did everything right all
the time. Like my coming
along when you needed a
cab, things happen like
that to Ryan Jay
Robinson, every single
time.”

Passenger: “There are
always a few clouds over
everybody.”

Cabbie: “Not Ryan Jay
Robinson. He was a
terrific athlete. He could
have won the Grand Slam
at tennis. He could golf
with the pros. He sang
like an opera baritone
and danced like a
Broadway star and you
should have heard him
play the piano. He was an
amazing guy.”

Passenger: “Sounds like
he was something really
special.”

Cabbie: “There’s more.
He had a memory like a
computer. He
rememberedeverybody’s
birthday. He knew all
about wine, which foods
to order and which fork
to eat them with. He
could fix anything. Not
like me. I change a fuse,
and the whole street
blacks out. But Ryan Jay
Robinson, he could do
everything right.”

Passenger: “Wow. Some
guy then.”

Cabbie: “He always knew
the quickest way to go in
traffic and avoid traffic
jams. Not like me, I
always seem to get stuck
in them. But Ryan, he
never made a mistake,
and he really knew how
to treat a woman and
make her feel good. He
would never answer her
back even if she was in
the wrong; and his
clothing was always
immaculate, shoes highly
polished too. He was the
perfect man! He never
made a mistake. No one
could ever measure up to
Ryan Jay Robinson.”

Passenger: “An amazing
fellow. How did you meet
him?”

Cabbie: “Well, I never
actually met Ryan. He
died. I’m married to his
widow.” …read more

In the USA the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has approached the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in order to access whether cannabis should finally be downgraded from a Schedule 1 drug to a lower schedule.

Of course we all already know that it clearly should be, but will the FDA change its tune now that support for reform is at an all time high with almost half of US states having legalised the plant for medicinal use?

The FDA has twice before been asked by the DEA to make a recommendation on cannabis’ status and both times, in 2001 and 2006, it has voted to keep it Schedule 1.

Third time lucky?

Mitchell’s Plain cluster commander Major General Vearey maintains Mitchell’s Plain police will not conduct search operations at schools, as it fails to address the underlying socio-economic problems rooted in many households.

“Using policing to deter crime at schools is not the best solution. We are there to prevent and investigate crime and not be used as a whipping stick,” he says.

“If a school identifies problematic children, we engage them in our social crime prevention programmes which enable transformation.”

At last…..a top cop that realises drugs are NOT the problem – they are a symptom of the problem.
