A number o things are going onbut are still a little too resh at this point to write about. Teyneed to simmer and stew a bit beore serving up to the publicMany years ago (nine maybe) I was able to use a brilliant articleby an Australian writer on how to get your adult children tomove out o the house. It was very witty and unny as heck!!!Unortunately, getting good substitute writers to ll in or you ispretty hard to do. Tat Musings lady has oered to ll in romtime to time, but I wouldnt want her stu printed anywhere. So... out o desperation I called upon my best riend to see i hemight be able to help me out and being the good boy that he is he said WOOF!!! So here he is!!Hi there, my name is Te Jet, and I belong to a wonderul man</p><p>called Mikie. I also live with a strange little old lady, who hasthis even stranger liking or three at creatures that I have toshare the house with. Mikie is my best riend cause he doesntlike those at creatures either!! Mikie is so wonderul because ..Hey thats not a ull dish ... You got to put more ood in therethan that!!! You could stand to lose a ew pounds yoursel!!I he wasnt my best riend, why, I would gladly chew his leg oEven when they are on a diet, the at creatures get three meals aday and I only ever get two!! What about that, big shot riend??</p><p>Although, Mikie is a real tight wad with the kibble, he doesregularly take me or walks in the woods. I love walking in thewoods!! Hey slow poke ... why are you stopping and just lookingat trees?? I have squirrels to chase and I cant just hang aroundin one place while you snooze!! Id just leave and go o on</p><p>my own, but the coyotes might get him. More importantly, thecoyotes might get ME!! Te kibble police can look aer himsel!</p><p>Te other nice thing about Mikie is that in the winter time helikes to light res. Dont worry ... i the kibble doesnt improvethe Fire Marshall is denitely getting a call. I just love sittingright in ront o the stove with a blazing re going. I am so happythat I even let one o the at creatures share some o the spaceHey Mikie ... the re is dying down ... get over here!!My best riend Mikie would be just about perect i it wasnt or</p><p>the Strange Lady and the Fat Creatures!!!Tanks Jet.

Sam Mncina,Head eacher, Peak Central High School</p><p>Te Hampton-Piggs PeakPartnership has committed topay high school ees or nineadditional students this year.2012 will be a challenge as eesor this year have increasedsubstantially because oadditional expenses or theood program at schools;increases in the price omaterials like books andstationery; and reducedgovernment assistance.Nevertheless, the Partnership</p><p>has committed to pay 100percent o the necessary eesor all the students we selected</p><p>this year. We will continue to support all the students remaining</p><p>rom last year and, since some have graduated and a ew droppedout, a number o new students. Te criteria we use to select newstudents are threeold: need; academic ability; and dedication.Unortunately there are still many who meet these criteria butwhom we are unable to support. John Lovett recently wrote tome about 14-year old Nonjabuliso Dlamini who came to himwith tears in her eyes because she cannot attend school. Shehas proven hersel to be an excellent student in primary school(grade 1-7) but there is nowhere or her to live close to our highschools in Piggs Peak. John tells us Her mother has died, herather has disappeared and she lives with her grandmother sometwenty kilometres rom Piggs Peak and who already has veother children whom she is struggling to support.</p><p>Children like Nonjabuliso, without the opportunity o an</p><p>education, are condemned to a lie o poverty. Tey are especiallyvulnerable to abuse or at best being taken advantage o becauseo their dependency on any handout. Tese are all Gods childrenand their lives and utures are in our hands.</p><p>Mark, I despair or these kids. I lose sleep as I strive to ndsolutions or them.
