Record-breaking pageant is in the offing

record-breaking pageant is in the offing

The bamberg district association of the bavarian farmers’ association (bbv) is expecting a record turnout this year for the procession to the district harvest festival. "So far we have 79 registrations, and experience has shown that there are always a few more jumping on the bandwagon", hubert dietz, managing director, takes stock of the event. 74 wagons and groups have been the maximum number of participants so far, this year for the first time the 80 mark was exceeded. Next sunday, 23. September, the record-breaking train will be joined by 13.30 o’clock in stegaurach (neuaurach) set in motion.

Hubert dietz does not have a clear explanation for this large number of participants either. The mood in the agricultural sector has not worsened, but is perhaps even good at the moment. Whether this can be the trigger for new records, the manager does not really want to believe. "We are pleased that from the aurachgrund the participation from the non-agricultural sector is very rough", dietz calls a possibility. For example, in addition to the lisberg winery, the metzner company and the municipal building yard had also announced their participation. "The farmers can make good use of this solidarity."

It is not known which topics will be the main focus of the train. "We let ourselves be surprised", says co-organizer sabine dotzer, who together with gerlinde eichhorn, werner wabmann, gunther litzfelder and hubert dietz has taken matters into their own hands. The official motto is "harvest as a gift and a task".

It took eight police officers to bring 34-year-old man under control

It took eight police officers to bring 34-year-old man under control

In the end, in addition to the comprehensive and unconditional confession, it was above all the positive feedback from his guardian that saved a 34-year-old from going behind bars. This time, the man with many previous convictions and experience of crime was in the dock at the district court in habfurt for resisting law enforcement officers. The man, who lives in the neighboring district of bad kissingen, was sentenced to eleven months’ imprisonment on probation.

The crime took place on 23. December last year, one day before christmas eve. The habitual drinker had quenched his thirst during the day, according to his own statement, with ten small 0.33 bottles of beer when he showed up at his girlfriend’s apartment in the evening. But that was not the end of the story, because here it went on like this. In a short time he drank another five to six 0.5-liter bottles.

At that time, his younger sister was in his girlfriend’s apartment. With this one he got himself in the wool. Why, the accused can no longer remember today. In any case, there was a lot of shouting and banging in the evening, so that a neighbor alerted the police.

The need for childcare is increasing

Martin hempfling from the youth welfare planning department in the district office of forchheim presented the data on needs planning in the eggolsheim market to the eggolsheim market town councils. Hempfling expects the number of children in elementary schools as well as in daycare centers and kindergartens to increase and thus the need for care to grow steadily.

The basis for the estimates is the development of the local population, which is positive and growing thanks to the favorable location in the nurnberg metropolitan region.

According to article 5 of the bavarian law on the education, upbringing and care of children in kindergartens, daycare facilities and daycare (bay-kibig), the municipalities must provide the necessary places in the facilities in good time. To do this, the need must be determined and the wishes and needs of the parents must be taken into account. From the child’s first birthday, for example, parents have a legal right to a place in a daycare center, but at the latest when the child reaches the age of three.

Tractor-trailer catches fire – highway closed

A truck caught fire on the A9 near trockau on tuesday morning. Due to the intense heat and smoke development, both directions of travel had to be completely closed off. Against 8.50 o’clock a 62-year-old man from the district of weiden was driving his dump truck on the highway in the direction of berlin. When he had to stop on the hard shoulder due to a technical defect, he already noticed a fire developing in the area of the engine. The driver was able to get out of the car on his own and make an emergency call. When the first rescue vehicles arrived, the driver’s house was already in full blaze. Only when the fire was under control was it possible to reopen the road to munich after about ten minutes. The lane in the direction of berlin had to remain closed for about an hour due to the frozen loo water. This caused considerable delays, as the required vehicle did not fit through the – only partially existing – rescue lane in many places. The total damage to property amounts to approximately 100,000 euros. The traffic participants had to expect slight obstructions in the further course of the day due to the salvage work. Subsequently, the asphalt must be examined for fire damage. In connection with the incident, the bayreuth traffic police point out that the emergency lane must also be kept clear for wide vehicles.

A puzzle for carnival lovers

A puzzle for carnival lovers

It was rather urgent, in september last year: two months before the start of carnival on the 11th.11.In 2011 matthias simon, director of the "buttenabende", was faced with a problem: who would design the carnival medal for the carnival society "kroniche fousanaocht"??

"Alexandra reiter, who i know from school, came to my mind", says simon. He is a pastoral counselor and teaches religion at frankenwald high school (G). Art teacher alexandra reiter also works there. When the colleague asked her, she thought for a moment and said "yes" said.

Then she also had to get started so that everything would be ready on time. "First of all, I designed the imprint for the brass medal to wear around your neck", she explains. She pulls out a sheet of A4 paper with a pencil drawing of the order in the middle. Next to it brush strokes, painted with acrylic paint, in different blue tones.

Local council met in its living room

Local council met in its living room

When georg wurstlein tells of his childhood, the picture of an ideal world emerges. Only a closer look reveals that the idyll was often tragic. The advent of national socialism cast a shadow, the war caused gaps, and medical care for people in the countryside was more than inadequate.
"We children bathed in the main, hung onto the float and swam along", tells the 85-year-old. The flobbers from the frankenwald did not like this at all and chased the high-spirited children away from the flob ends with their long poles. For the children it was a joke, just as they sometimes distracted the unterzettlitz crossing keeper at the railroad crossing in order to put pennies on the tracks in an unobserved moment. The thundering trains flattened the small munches and hurled them around, so that some of them could not be found again.

The railroad: until the 1960s, pounding steam engines were the order of the day on the tracks in the main valley. The smoking ungetume could bring the women from unterzettlitz to despair. When there were no washing machines, they washed together on washing day, just as they baked together on baking day. Between the fruit trees, not far from the railroad line, washing lines were stretched to dry the persilweiben sheets. The fresh wash could be seen for miles around, which irritated some heaters. It happened that railroad employees wanted to play a dirty trick on the washerwomen and intentionally shoveled another scoop of coal into the firebox. The consequence: a black rubbing flag ruined the washerwomen's work. "The women cried", georg wurstlein remembers.

Displeasure over 29 agenda items and documents

29 items on the agenda, some of them without documentation – the hiltpoltstein councilors did not like that. They expressed their displeasure when mayor gisela schulze-bauer (bfh) asked for the obligatory agreement on the issues at hand.

"The background knowledge for the meeting items is missing. The documents were only posted on the weekend, so i don’t feel sufficiently informed", complained the third mayor gisela geldner (). When the municipal councils still received the documents in writing, this worked well. But since the introduction of the council information system, the documents have been posted only a short time beforehand.

Mayor gisela schulze-bauer took the administration to task. Two employees in the building department are currently missing and there is a lot of work in the administration anyway. The employees had also had a lot of work beforehand, replied geldner. That shortly before the meeting the "ratsinfo" it could not be the case that the city council was not fully informed and the trailer was stuffed. At the time the documents were sent by mail, the information was on the table five days before the meeting. "This window of opportunity is for the council to prepare itself. We must have a few days to do this", wolfgang engel (CSU) also voiced his opinion.

His social commitment to disadvantaged, disabled and orphaned children began. Since then, he has been supporting facilities in the poor districts of windhoek and swakopmund, as well as a children's home in northern namibia. Only recently, the former teacher was back in the african country for six weeks.

What drove you to namibia this time?

Roland grebner: in 2017, the senior experts service (SES) in bonn sent me to namibia for the first time for three months. I was asked to provide pedagogical and didactical support for kindergartens in the townships and to develop a pedagogical and organizational concept for the children's home in the north of namibia. The people in charge in namibia wanted me to come back. I myself was extremely curious to see if I could leave a mark, make a difference, continue the work. I was delighted when the follow-up assignment was approved.
