Great Brak Post since 2003

The post was the inspiration of Margi a long standing resident of this beautiful village of ours, Great Brak River. The publication started out as a 1 page A3 folded newspaper using newsprint paper and no pictures. It has grown into a 24 page community newspaper with 12 full colour pages, the cover and selected inside pages. It is a newspaper that many village residents look out for as it’s a great source for local information. The aim has always been to keep the newspaper community oriented and as enjoyable and informative as possible. There are a number of key subjects featured which have gained a great following, the Sudoku puzzles being one of them. There are a number of regular community contributors who send in articles and information.

So Where are We Going in 2017

We as the new owners of the Great Brak Post are proud to celebrate our 1st year of publications. We are now a 20 page document and will stay this way for the time being. We will grow our distribution in 2017 to a level where we can move into a wider sphere and more outlying towns and communities. We still want more participation from our readers and from our Facebook page which is steadily growing, we would like more mail posted into our post box, let’s hear more from you! We look to the towns businesses and aim to build a sound relationship offering a cost effective promotional and marketing solution. We will strive to develop the brand “Great Brak Post” as a printed newspaper allowing marketers the opportunity to include fliers and inserts for distribution. Our on-line presence now promotes our advertisers and is a further platform for our contributors with the featured articles.

klokkie binne-in.  Ek kan die versoeking nie weerstaan om die bal te hop nie.  Vinniger wip die bal terug as wat ek antisipeer, miskien is my hand- oogkoördinasie nie meer wat dit was nie.  Verstom is ek oor die neonrooi en -blou lig wat binne-in die bal aan die dans raak met elke hop.  Meer van die heerlikheid wil ek beleef.  Meegesleur deur die genot, is dit een na die ander bons, totdat die wip van die bal skuins trek en wegrol.  ʼn Paar swart skoolskoene, wit sokkies en toe my oog opkyk, ʼn katoenkleur skooljurk, stop die rol van die bal.  Verleë besef ek dat ek al ʼn geruime tyd dopgehou is deur die leerder, wat ʼn baie geamuseerde uitdrukking op haar gesig het. Vandaar my vraag.  Wat doen elkeen van ons om blymoedige oomblikke te beleef of het dit ʼn verwagting geword dat iemand dit vir ons moet wees en skep? Sien ons die wasbak vol skottelgoed as ʼn las, of ʼn kans om verlore te raak in ʼn droomwêreld wetende niemand gaan jou durf pla op daardie oomblik nie.  Steek jy nog jou voete weg in die warm seesand en
jou tone in geniepsige koue water?  Sit jy in stilte en bewonder die volmaaktheid van ʼn volmaan-aand?  Raak jy aan die giggel wanneer jy deur jou plakboekalbum van onthou blaai oor die tabberds van jou jeug? Dans jy met die besemstok en swaai jy jou volstruisgekleurde stoffer soos ʼn towerstaf? Vandag pronk my gelukskoop van R18 op my kombuiskas, waar my hart ʼn bolmakiesie slaan wanneer ek net kyk of die bal hop-hop in die voorhuis. To all our readers, contributors and advertisers we trust you will enjoy our bountiful 24 page 2nd Birthday edition of the Great Brak Post.   Thank you for your loyal support and continued enthusiasm.
Raak ons nog opgewonde? Hierdie gedagte na aanleiding van ʼn gebeure een Vrydagmiddag. ʼn Gewillige slagoffer van ʼn winskopie, bevind ek my in een van die “opskiet- paddastoel” Chinese winkels in George.  Op en af in die rakke vol linte, tierlantyntjies, gereedskap, plastiekblomme, liggies, stootwaentjies en so kan ek aangaan … My oog vang die helder ligblou bal met tinsels, ʼn skoenlapper en ʼn wat lyk soos ʼn

Op 14 Februarie het die meeste Suid- Afrikaners  ‘n sug van verligting geslaak. Met die inhuldiging van ons nuwe president ,Cyril Ramaphosa, is dit asof ‘n nuwe vars briesie begin waai het. Is dit nie verbysterend om te dink wat een mens kan regkry of vernietig nie?! Dis nog nou die dag dat selfs inwoners van Groot Brakrivier in Langstraat van die biblioteek tot by Suiderkruis Sekuriteit met “Zuma must fall” plakkate gestaan het. Dit het wel lank geneem en geweldige skade is aan ons land en sy ekonomie berokken, maar die rol van die publiek, media en nog regdekende politici, wat druk op die regering geplaas het om verandering vreedsaam te kon laat geskied, kan nie onderskat word nie.   Is dit dan nie ook gepas, dat ons in hierdie maand Menseregtedag vier!  Dié dag wil landsburgers herinner aan die slagting op Sharpeville in Gauteng op 21 Maart 1960. Maar belangriker, mag ons ook nooit ons demokrasie en grondwet, wat menseregte en vryheid waarborg, as vanselfsprekend aanvaar nie. Mag Suid-Afrika en sy mense nooit weer toelaat dat een magsbehebte, individu of party rassespanning en verdeeldheid aanblaas nie. Mag die son weer van vooraf op Suid-Afrika en al sy mense skyn. En soos Cyril Ramaphosa tereg opmerk – “stuur my”!
