“Bamberg markets are a piece of world heritage”

The conflict of interests between the vendors of the weekly market and the magic festival is today also a matter of concern for the city council. Because the dealers of the 13. Up to 15. July for "bamberg works its magic" must again leave the green market, they have announced to stay completely at home this year.

Bamberg’s new city heritage manager stephanie eibing does not want to get involved in this dispute, but she is speaking out because she has gained the impression from the public discussion of the topic that the marks do not (or no longer) enjoy the appreciation they deserve. Eibing calls it an "intangible world heritage that is so concrete that we bambergers live from it in the most direct sense: we have it on our table or plate every day if we want to".

Precisely because the daily market is something that the people of bamberg take for granted, it seems important to the local historian to note how familiar such an offer is is: "guests and visitors envy us." Elsewhere, consumers had to go to a specialty store or turn to the exclusive mail order business if they wanted something special, such as "bamberger hornla"-want potatoes. In bamberg, on the other hand, people "just go to the market in town". Whether the daily weekly market, the producer’s market on wednesday, friday and saturday in the hauptwachstrabe, the saturday farmer’s market on the promenade or the direct sales in the market gardens in the gartnerstadt: "many people liked to have such an abundant offer"!"

Cyberbullying is a big issue, especially among young people

Cyberbullying is a big issue, especially among young people

"This is a very rough subject that can go as far as suicide," ziercke said in an editorial interview with the german press agency in mainz. Unfortunately, such cases also exist in this country. Cyberbullying is now a focus of the weiben ring’s prevention work.

The former president of the federal criminal police office explained that volunteers as young as possible go into schools or to parents’ meetings to prevent such traps – "but always accompanied by teachers. "Because you can’t know whether massive cases of bullying are taking place in the very class in which you are giving a lecture."

However, it is not the task of the weiber ring to give psychological advice, said ziercke, who has been head of the victim support organization weiber ring since september 2018. One could only sensitize and show ways how affected people can find help. For example, that they should contact trust teachers or the weiben ring and its network partners such as the juuuport project, which specializes in support services for digitally bullied young people.

Much applause for bernhard seeberger

Much applause for bernhard seeberger

This is certainly not how bernhard seeberger () had imagined his last council meeting as mayor. Instead of the meeting room, the committee met in the multipurpose hall. Seeberger, who missed re-election after 18 years in office as mayor, but will remain in the newly elected body as a normal councillor, bid farewell to six councillors at the end of the public meeting with words of praise and a heartfelt thank you. Because of the distance requirement, he refrained from a handshake; the certificate of thanks and a present were placed on the tables of the departing committee members.

Seeberger himself emphasized how much pleasure he had always taken in his office and that he had enjoyed holding it every single day: "it was a wonderful and interesting time. During my time in office, I have always been concerned that the general public, the community, should benefit from it.", he explained.

Seeberger then wanted to close his last public meeting, but head of administration martin hofmann and second mayor werner schorr (CSU), as well as heike weiser for the free voters, surprised the community leader with a personal thank you.
