RUSTENBURG HERALD - RUSTENBURG - Leonardo da Vinci het gesê: “Bestudeer die wetenskap van kuns. Bestudeer die kuns van wetenskap. Besef dat alles verbind is aan alles anders.” 
Hiérmee stem doktor Jaco Meyer, oud-inwoner van Rustenburg heelhartig saam. “Die musiek wat ek komponeer is meestel konseptueel en hou verband met kuns. Ek hou baie van moderne en konseptuele kuns en probeer hard om die kuns en musiek op ‘n manier by mekaar uit te kry. Met konseptuele musiek bedoel ek meestal dat ek musiek skryf wat ‘n geïnteresseerde persoon se brein aan die gang sal sit.”

RUSTENBURG HERALD - HERALD - Potholes here and potholes there - potholes everywhere, potholes in the street where water they will leak... Yes, there is little doubt that Rustenburg's pothole issue has "sunk"(?) way out of control and no matter how many promises are made, the situation is worsening by the day.
