Wednesday Morning Edition

Good morning all,


GR learners educated on air quality. NSRI assist hikers in the Kaaimans River.  George Municipality celebrates Youth Month.  GR Casino brings you top quality entertainment.  Sedgefield pilots a home composting project.  Rosedale puts on a surprise Father’s Day lunch.

Christo Lamprecht off to a fast start in Japan.  Jordan Duminy not so in England.  The latest Knysna Golf Club Newsletter.

Zimbabwe in the dark.  US and China to resume trade talks.  Russia objects to the US sending more troops to the Middle East.  Boris Johnson stretches his lead.  The cabal puppets are suffering.

This may be the last day for the SABC unless they get yet another bailout.  High Court orders Trillion to pay back the dirty Gupta money back to Eskom.  Rand firms after Ramaphosa backs Eskom.

JSE up on the stronger Rand – also helped by the EU’s announcement that they will be printing money.  Ramaphosa will have to act decisively re the SABC – guess they can’t afford to kill their propaganda machine.

The Beast says some nice words to sooth Div’s wounded pride.  Morgan pulls an AB on Afghanistan.  Le Clos plows back into swimming.  Ngidi back for the D-Day clash with New Zealand.  Sharks will be without the Beast and Jean-Luc du Preez for the playoffs.
