From eyesore to eye-catcher – what the village renewal in kleukheim has achieved

From eyesore to eye-catcher - what the village renewal in kleukheim has achieved

The grass does not grow faster if you pull on it. Projects and measures take a certain amount of time to complete. The participants were all the more satisfied with the successful completion of the simple village renewal in kleukheim. The former threshing barn, a crossing aid and the construction of a new footpath were all part of the project.

The ebensfeld mayor bernhard storath, thomas kleylein from the commissioned planning office HTS kronach, wolfgang kiebling, senior building director of the office for rural development, and hubert reub from the ebensfeld market building office were satisfied with the result.

The eyesore at the end of the village

In order to better understand today's positive situation, it is worth taking a look back at the past: the building complex at the end of the village in the direction of scheblitz, with the former threshing hall and the old fire station directly connected to it, caused local residents and the municipal administration some pain. Not a few even used the expression "eyesore" in the mouth.

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".

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.

For children, play is essential to life

For children, play is essential to life

However, in order to acquire skills for living in the community, guidance is needed. Therefore, 37 women and men who work with kindergarten children and schoolchildren at the bavarian red cross (BRK) in habfurt were trained during a two-day seminar.

Employees from youth social work at schools, from the lunchtime and homework supervision at the middle schools in hofheim, knetzgau and zeil-sand, and from the kindergarten in konigsberg took part in the multiplier training at the BRK in habfurt. Theater and play padagogue michael keim from the mainspielmobil in obertheres and adventure padagogue christoph auer from fernreuth designed the nine-hour training program. The participants learned new games, game forms and game actions in a playful way. They can use their experience in their daily work and in internal seminars.

High school graduation in three years

High school graduation in three years

No probationary period, no entrance examinations, no additional learning – students with an intermediate school-leaving certificate can breathe a sigh of relief. Until now, if they wanted to graduate from high school, it was a rather awkward path: deadlines had to be met, material had to be re-learned. With the school model "high school graduation in three years will this change in forchheim from the 2012/13 school year?. At the herder-gymnasium, real, business and middle school students can find a "good and easy way to the baccalaureate", says liselotte rall-weib. The head of herder is pleased about the first "introductory" class at your school. It will start in the fall. If 15 students register, the class will be formed. Rall-weib is confident: "I expect 15 registrations – minimum"."
The secondary schools alone had enormous potential, says rall-weib. It refers to information from the ministry. According to the report, educational researchers have found that 40 percent of secondary school students are suitable for the baccalaureate. "No graduation without a connection, the ministry has issued this slogan.
It is a "political suggestion says wolfgang blos, head of the forchheim school board. In bavaria, it is important that the school system is "structured, but transparent". The introductory class and the subsequent attendance of the upper school increase the passability – but not necessarily for the middle school students, says wolfgang blos. Although the education authority will also advertise among M-school students, "they are not the target group of the model.
One must not forget, says wolfgang blos, that the gymnasium is a "rather abstract and theory-based school, while the middle school is more practice-oriented and concrete".
If someone has attended middle school for six years, a transfer to high school is not to be expected. In other words, anyone who was able to think abstractly in high school and attended middle school "was at the wrong school, says wolfgang blos. But at the same time, it is important to note that there are always exceptions. He tells the story of a young woman from gobweinstein who switched from high school to middle school because of personal problems. "She has caught herself and is managing the M-branch lassig", says blos. She is a typical candidate for the baccalaureate in three years.
In the realschule, the number of these candidates is much larger. Gunter maier, head of the hartmann-realschule, says: the graduates now no longer had to take the long way to attend an introductory class in bamberg. "Some people were put off by this," says.
This year it will be easier. 160 graduates are expected at the forchheim secondary school. He is no prophet, says school principal maier, but he already sees "five or six students from the french class", he believes they will graduate from high school in three years. "We are promoting this very useful model," says, says maier. It also makes sense because motivated students are no longer dependent on grades alone. A pedagogical report could pave the way to the introductory class: "this does not depend on any grade point average", says gunter maier "the whole picture of the school is looked at".

Ebern puts the word out

Ebern puts the word out

Eckehard kiesewetter ebern – the motorsage threatens, and another thick branch plops to the ground on the cordoned-off area of the anlagenring about seven meters deep. The damage to the core is unmistakable. The 60-year-old chestnut tree at a junction at the transition from the walk-strasser complex to the secondary school, not far from the traffic circle at the mobile home park and the old people’s home "was simply falling down", the workers are in agreement. During the storm, a branch of the decrepit giant could easily break off. Danger therefore for fubganger.

"It’s about the city’s duty to ensure traffic safety", says mayor jurgen hennemann. An expert opinion, for which resonance measurements were also taken, proves that the chestnut tree could not be saved.

About the future of further trees from the former avenue in ebern’s "grunem gurtel", about 200 meters further south, in the vicinity of the diebsturm, a final decision has not yet been made. Their condition has also been examined by the surveyor – with different results.

Narrhalla gives away flea market tickets

Narrhalla gives away flea market tickets

The women of the coburg narrhalla put in a great effort at the flea market in coburg’s city center despite the sweltering heat. Donated high-quality clothing, household goods, toys and much more was sold from saturday to sunday at the stand of the narrhalla at the exit from the parking garage mauer. There was haggling, negotiating and a lot of laughing and in the end the buyers were happy to pay a little more for the good cause.

The proceeds of the narrhalla’s flea market sale went to two preschool classes of the heinrich-schaumberger school in coburg. "The stutz- und forderklassen are a cooperation between a school and a youth welfare organization. In these classes, a team of teachers, social pedagogues and educators teaches and accompanies young people and girls who need help in the socio-emotional area, with the aim of enabling them to return to regular school," explained social pedagogue eva beck from the heinrich-schaumberger school at the presentation of the donation.

In the first half of 2019/20, the donation will be used to offer anti-aggression training for two of these classes: the aim is to teach the students concentration, stamina and a targeted approach to dealing with aggression on a different level.
