The clearing plant goes down to earth

The clearing plant goes down to earth

Will the pettstadt clearing plant be upgraded and renovated or will the municipality of kirchlauter decide to connect the pettstadt district to the clearing plant in kirchlauter after all?? This question will be addressed by the municipal council of kirchlauter in the near future and a decision will have to be made. This was the opinion of mayor karl-heinz kandler (SPD) at the youngest council meeting.

Some time ago, the mayor had already pointed out that the disc diving body small clear plant in pettstadt was getting on in years and that consideration had to be given to its renovation. Everything is still fine at the moment, but the schoperk is coming to an end.

That’s why he had the engineering office (TBW) of werner make a study of the possible variants to bring the clearing system technically up to date again. Three variants were presented to the municipal council and the council must then decide which should be implemented.

From the courtroom to jail

From the courtroom to jail

A scene like something out of a detective story took place on wednesday in the habfurt district court: immediately after the sentencing, the two convicted men, each 35 years old and both from an asian country, were led away in handcuffs by police officers. Reason for the detention orders: risk of absconding.

The duo was sentenced to long prison terms for sexual assault and grievous bodily harm. The officials transported the delinquents to the correctional facility in bamberg.

About a dozen witnesses and three sworn translators had been called by the court of record, presided over by criminal judge roland wiltschka, to find out what had happened at a late hour at last year's sander wine festival. The two men had attended the party and were "completely out of line" after midnight, as prosecutor christoph lehmann put it.

Motorcycle rally in kulmbach: enjoy the ride calmly, take your foot off the gas

Calmness in road traffic contributes to safety, says bavarian state minister, who has been a regular at the kulmbach motorcycle rally since he took office ten years ago. From erlangen, he set off for the biker mecca of kulmbach, accompanied for the first time by the long-serving head of the federal employment agency, frank-jurgen weise, and the new head of the federal office for migration and refugees, jutta cordt.

Supported by the city and district of kulmbach and the radio station antenne bayern.

A round thing at the traffic circle

A round thing at the traffic circle

Zeil – not everything that is born in carnival and has to do with alcoholic beverages is a booze idea. The traffic circle campaign organized by the goller brewery and the local carnival was a great success.
Taking up an idea from the women's carnival concerning the design of the new traffic circle on krumer strabe, franz-josef goller promised the jesters' guild a mab of beer for every cuddly toy placed on the new traffic circle in the village of zeil. When it came to paying on carnival tuesday, there were actually 1120 individual stuffed animals and a "christmas tree" decorated with stuffed animals. The brewery converted the 1170 mab of beer into a cash donation of 1300 euros. The carnival guild contributed 500 euros from the spontaneously held circle festival, and mayor thomas stadelmann (SPD) rounded up to 2000 euros as a private citizen.

For the two kindergarten
So now the two kindergartens in zeil could receive 1000 euro each. The two leaders came to the brewery's premises with a delegation of children to pick up the donation and say thank you. The discarded stuffed animals were cleaned and will be donated to charitable institutions for children.

Blackberry manufacturer rim brakes downward slide

Blackberry manufacturer rim brakes downward slide

This keeps hope alive that the cornerstone of the mobile industry still has a future in a competitive market dominated by apple with its iphone and android phones from manufacturers like samsung.

In its second fiscal quarter (up to 1. September) financially better than in the previous three months. Sales increased slightly, the loss was reduced and the cash position was filled with cash. That was a welcome surprise for investors: the beleaguered stock shot up 14 percent in early trading in toronto on friday.

But the pure sales figures still look meager: RIM sold just 7.4 million blackberrys in three months. By way of comparison, apple sold more than 5 million units of its new iphone 5 in the first three days of sales alone. In the previous quarter, RIM had shipped 7.8 million smartphones and 10.6 million in the same quarter of the previous year.

Del coaches believe title race will be more balanced

Del coaches believe title race will be more balanced

Don jackson of EHC red bull munich may be confident of defending the title again, but if his fellow coaches have their way, the dominance of the perennial champions in the 25. German ice hockey league season comes to an end.

Most coaches are expecting more competition in the 14. September season to begin with a much more exciting title race than in the past three years, when the most financially powerful club always triumphed. Hardly any other coach expressed himself as clearly as munich’s championship guarantor jackson in a survey conducted by the german press agency: "EHC red bull munchen – because we want to defend our title again and always win it."

The DEL coaches again see the seven-time champion adler mannheim, who last won the title in 2015 before munich’s championship series began, as a rough challenger, and then mostly de-raced. "There are certainly some teams that want to be in the running for the title this year. That definitely includes us," said new mannheimer coach and adler player legend pavel gross.

“Men like you are a godsend for our society”

Albin ruhl has retained his love of the fire department to this day. He’s at every event, even if it’s just a get-together. He can also be seen regularly at the singing club, the brass band and with the hunt tenants. From his active service period, which ended in 1993, the jubilarian has particularly fond memories of the comradeship he enjoyed. "Since I worked in the field, I never had to go on a rough assignment, tells ruhl, born in 1933. He even learned later about a major fire in tiefenstockheim.
Ruhl began his training still on a hand lever pump and a ladder carried on storage wheels. A tractor was harnessed for the operation. Otherwise, there were only a few tools. He can no longer say when a motorized pump was purchased, but at that point, the cow-pumping was over. It was the time when there was no siren in the village and the bugler cycled through the streets and blew the alarm.

"It is a good tradition to meet at the fountain and to enter the church together with the buglers", county administrator paul sternly found and thanked pastor wilson for a fitting service in a dignified setting. He was amazed to learn that 32 of the village’s 260 residents are active firefighters. Among the many young guards, there are also women – which is a matter of course for streng, "thanks to their ability to do and organize several things at the same time.

It was a special pleasure for streng to award two young florians, berthold heilmann and franz schubert, the gold medal of honor for 40 years of active service. "Men like you are a godsend to our society", stated sternly. The jubilarians, hardly noticed by the public, had been available for the general public 24 hours a day, around the clock, for 40 years. At the same time, the representative of district administrator tamara bischof regretted that both of them, together with their comrade manfred danner, were retiring from the fire department.

Federal agency sees little chance of job recovery in 2013

Federal agency sees little chance of job recovery in 2013

However, he now expects the average number of unemployed to be higher than the previous year’s level of 2.897 million. "The job market did so badly in the first half of the year that it won’t make up for it in the second half," weise said in nurnberg on thursday.

In june, the delayed spring revival had provided a slight boost to the labor market. According to the BA, 2.865 million men and women were registered as unemployed at last count. This is 72,000 fewer than in may, but 56,000 more than a year ago. Unemployment rate down 0.2 points on previous month to 6.6 percent.

Weise stressed that the german labor market remained robust, but benefited in june from catch-up effects from the cold and rainy spring. Many companies had initially postponed hiring because of the bad weather. "You could almost say that spring has slipped into summer," explained weise.
