Neither the sporting performance, nor a table position are a yardstick for the awarding of the prize. In fact, the association uses this seal of approval to honor clubs that demonstrate outstanding long-term performance in the areas of youth work, volunteering, prevention and mass sports, thus living up to the DFB’s motto: "fubball is more than 1:0, fubball is social responsibility – do justice. Out of ten criteria in each of the above areas, at least four criteria must be met in order to receive the golden diamond.

For 2024 the leap into the "diamond champions league" beckons

"Good restaurants get stars, and clubs that do something special are awarded the diamond", this is how bauer expressed it in his laudatory speech and praised the great voluntary commitment at SSV kitzingen. What in the economy the certification is, represents in a sports club the golden rod as a confirmation of the qualification reached by itself. Socially, the SSV is now certainly in the "diamond european league" and, according to the statutes of the BFV, will be able to make the leap into the "diamond champions league" in 2024 create.

Construction work on the floodway has officially begun

construction work on the floodway has officially begun

Four wooden posts in the bare ground are all that can be seen of the future pumping station at the flood basin so far. But that will change quickly – because the pumping station that will protect residents from rising groundwater in the future is scheduled for completion as early as fall. The construction work for the rough redesign of the flood basin between berliner brucke and priemershofer brucke will now officially begin.

Dam on the B289 disappears
"As part of the first phase of construction, the southern dam next to the federal highway will also be removed", explains andrea kunzl from the hof water management office, which is responsible for the planning. This will be replaced in the future by the dam, on which the bundesstrabe runs. "This gives more space to the water, which makes the construction work on the northern dam possible." The first phase of construction is expected to be completed within this year. In a second construction phase, the northern embankment along the tidal basin will be reinforced with steel sheet piles, which will be driven into the ground down to the rock. "They are then absolutely tight and impermeable to water", so kunzl. That is why the pumping station must be built first. "In the event of heavy rainfall, the water would otherwise back up on the side of the residential area, as it would not be able to enter the flood basin." The groundwater level was rising, water could print into the cellars of the houses. "The pumping station will convey the groundwater through two pipes running through the dam to the other side into the flood basin." The facility will reach seven meters into the ground for this purpose.

Porbitscher au is being redesigned
As part of the second phase of construction, the dam at porbitscher au will also be moved further towards the residential area and the land redesigned. The main river is to be restored to its natural course here. Planning for this section is already underway. "The contracts are to be awarded in the summer so that the work can continue without interruption", kunzl explains.

Munnerstadt: city council cancels resolutions

Munnerstadt: city council cancels resolutions

Everything is the same: although not a single city council member has changed his or her opinion, the two previous resolutions, after the citizens’ petition "preservation of our indoor pool – swimming instead of demolition", are still valid has been repealed. This was simply because this time all the city councils were present and thus the narrow majority of CSU and neue wege was restored. With the repeal of the last two resolutions, the decision of february automatically applies again. According to this, the citizens’ petition is inadmissible. The initiators can take legal action against this at the administrative court in wurzburg. It is also possible to initiate a new petition for citizenship. To do this, signatures first had to be collected.

The district office had called on the city to reconsider the resolutions during a hearing because they were considered illegal. So the authorities share the view of mayor helmut blank (CSU), who had suspended implementation of the previous resolutions. In extreme cases, the district office, as the supervisory authority, overturned the resolutions instead of the city. That’s why the proposal at monday’s city council meeting was for the city council to do it itself.

"The subject of today’s discussion is the application pursuant to article 28 of the constitution. Approach 1 of the bavarian administrative procedure act", leo pfennig (freie wahler) spoke up during the discussion. This reads: "before an administrative act is issued that interferes with the rights of an interested party, that party must be given the opportunity to comment on the facts relevant to the decision." The letter from the district office, however, does not allow for this possibility, according to leo pfennig. Rather, the "take it or leave it" method was used the city council has been threatened with legal supervision in case it does not change its positive decision.

Open sports work in bad kissingen helps to get problems on their feet

Open sports work in bad kissingen helps to get problems on their feet

The hall's spartan furnishings are immediately noticeable: hard concrete floor, meager wooden lockers, plain shower and changing rooms, no heating. The fitness and sports equipment, the judo mats lying on the floor, show that they are being used intensively.

Street worker albert kopplin has been in charge of the social association kidro's open sports program here since 2003. "This used to be a social hotspot," says matthies, says kopplin. The hall is located behind the youth and cultural center in the former u.S. Barracks. In the 1990s, young immigrants with a high potential for problems met there: many spoke hardly any german, had no school-leaving qualifications, no training, no work, but had problems with drugs, violence and crime. "I tried to get the boys off the streets", says kopplin, who is himself an emigrant.

The hall is open every day until late in the evening, everyone can use the open sport offer of the kidro and play volley- or fubball, go to the gym or take part in the sambo training (russian judo and self-defense variant) of kopplin. The street worker reaches the young people through sports, gains their trust and has an effect on them. "This is real life sport, he says. " I'm glad when the guys from the focal point are here, then i don't have to look for them."

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.
