Altenburg needs a new emergency access road

Altenburg needs a new emergency access road

The rinnersteig, which leads from wildensorger strabe up to altenburg, has for years fulfilled its function as an emergency access road to the bamberger landmark only to a limited extent. The street, which is closed to the public, is located in an active area of slippage and is becoming increasingly unsafe and narrow because its upper edge is visibly collapsing. The altenburgverein, as the lord of the castle, has therefore been calling for a second, safe access road for some time in case the regular access road via altenburger strabe is blocked. After a landslide many years ago this was the case.

For walkers, the city created a forest path in spring 2011 that branches off from the rinnersteig and leads to the castle at a safe distance past the quarry edge. Now the city's construction department is proposing to widen this road and make it load-bearing enough so that it can also be used by tanker and rescue vehicles in an emergency. If the nature conservation advisory council agrees to the associated encroachment on the burgwald forest, the forest road could be upgraded so that tanker and rescue vehicles can drive over it.

Nine trees are expected to fall. As a balance is talked about. Parts of the rinnersteig roadway to be renaturalized.

Infiana is now becoming “very british

Infiana is now becoming

Johannes hollein four weeks ago, when frankischer tag last inquired with infiana group gmbh about an imminent sale, those responsible were still stonewalling, unwilling to comment concretely on possible takeover negotiations. Nevertheless, it was clear: where there's smoke, there's fire – it was only a matter of time before the film factory in forchheim and the branch in the usa would have a new owner.

Now the competitor has been found: as the listed company deutsche beteiligungs-AG (DBAG), which invested exactly 23.7 million euros in infiana in december 2014 and has a 92.7 percent stake in the company, announced, it is selling its shares to pamplona capital management, a financial investor based in the uk. Corresponding contracts were signed last week. Provided the antitrust authorities approve the transaction, it is expected to be completed within the next three months. The parties to the agreement have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The right time

The sale does not come as a surprise, as a look at DBAG's business model makes clear: "the company invests in well-positioned medium-sized companies with development potential. As a partnership-oriented financial investor, we typically accompany our portfolio companies and their development process for four to seven years. We are pursuing the goal of increasing the value of the companies. By terminating the investment at the appropriate time and in a well-coordinated manner, we realize the value enhancement of the portfolio companies. They will then continue their development in a different constellation…", can be read on the DBAG homepage.

Marchenbuch and motorsage

As a child, i loved the tales of the grimm brothers. The worn book with the bright cover is still in my bookshelf, and many of the endlessly listened records i can still repeat by heart in parts.

It was only over the years that i noticed that the gebruder grimm… Yes, what actually: have told tales! A fake, a lie, without any connection to reality! Because let’s be honest: as a witch, you have to be very imaginative to steam your house in the forest with pepper cake, when it’s much easier and cheaper with polyurethane and a k-subsidy.

Parents must have neglected their little daughter’s regular eye examinations in order for her vision to be so blurred that she cannot distinguish a wolf’s face from the lady’s beard of her grandmother.

Dfbunterspeaks admission of kfc uerdingen to the 3. League

Dfbunterspeaks admission of kfc uerdingen to the 3. League

The application of the regional league west champion for admission to the 3. The german football association’s (DFB) appeals committee will hear the case next monday, the DFB announced on wednesday evening. The background to this is an apparently untimely submission of liquid reserves, which all clubs had to deposit with the DFB by yesterday, tuesday.

"The liquid reserve of KFC uerdingen requested with the condition was received, according to the current status on tuesday, possibly only after the expiration of the exclusion period. According to the statutes, the failure to meet the deadline meant that the condition was not met and therefore no admission could be granted," the DFB statement read.

KFC immediately rejected the accusation: "in the licensing process, we have fully complied with all points, worked 100 percent transparently and correctly, and provided financial guarantees of a level that is unique in this league in germany. We have even transferred the money twice, our guarantees are impeccable and financially the strongest in the 3. League," club boss mikhail ponomarev was quoted as saying on the club’s homepage. Should KFC not be able to advance, he will end his engagement, he emphasized.

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.

Olivia jones keeps her bein bones in a casket

Hamburg drag queen olivia jones (49) has kept a special souvenir from her leg shortening in 2017. "I have the bone fragments that i had removed in a jar of alcohol in my kitchen," jones told the german press agency in hamburg.

"I thought no one would believe you anyway. Then you must have these bones. And the operator also found this very funny." That look like a soup bone. "I find this quite interesting. There is hardly anyone else who has his own bone in the kitchen."

She can’t spoil her appetite with that, because jones has transformed her kitchen into a styling and peruke room. "I can’t cook and i prefer to leave that to the professionals on st. Pauli. We have so many restaurants here. I can have a different cultural meal every day. And that is great."

Ruhestorung in kitzingen: this is how residents experience the situation

Ruhestorung in kitzingen: this is how residents experience the situation

Nighttime larb pollution from partying on the main, especially on weekends with fair weather, is a common problem in kitzingen, according to residents. Only last saturday morning, a gathering of young people at bleichwasen escalated. Three of them are said to have resisted the officers after residents had called the police because of disturbances of the peace. Readers then discussed their experiences with the nighttime alert on social media. The tenor: again and again the celebrations give them sleepless nights.

One reader wrote on facebook: "you can see, for example, what we have to put up with on the bleichwasen weekend after weekend! Shouting, squealing tires, loud music and something like this!" The revellers lacked respect for the police, residents and even each other.

Reader reports: nighttime alarm in the city center

Even on the other side of the main the alarm from the bleichwasen arrived. Former city councillor franz bohm, who lives in schrannenstrasse, reported to this editorial team: "they are already loud." In recent years, the situation has gotten worse. This year, the alarm has been limited so far. But: "there must not be as many as last year", said bohm. He hopes that the police and the city will find a way to keep the noise within tolerable limits. Because, in the opinion of the former city councilor, partying itself is part of city life.

Lichtenfels county is now an educational region

Lichtenfels County is now an educational region

It’s a matter of continuing to demand and expand educational opportunities and networks. The district of lichtenfels would like to score with this in the future as well. Because education is not least an important location factor.

How serious one means it with this qualitatssiegel and the associated obligation, became already clear on the way there. Three years ago, six working groups were set up on the obermain and the district administration was given the task of tackling this project. Maria hahn, who acts as coordinator on behalf of the district office, made it clear that the working groups should not be dissolved again, but that the networking and improvement process of existing educational offers should be continued. When the minister of education, bernd sibler (CSU), handed over the hoped-for brass plate on tuesday morning, district administrator meibner immediately formulated the next goal: now they also want to become a "digital education region" develop further.

The initiative "educational regions in bavaria" was launched by the ministry of education a good six years ago. The aim was to create optimal educational opportunities for all young people. The actors should come from the region itself, because – according to the conviction: education is a challenge for society as a whole, and successes in this area are always community successes. So it wasn’t just the schools that were called upon, but also local authorities, youth welfare services, adult education centers, the business community and social groups ranging from the sports and reading associations to the red cross.

Afd faction vice-chairman does not want hocke on party executive committee

Afd faction vice-chairman does not want hocke on party executive committee

The deputy chairman of the afd parliamentary group, peter felser, did not like to see thuringian right-wing defender bjorn hocke on the new party executive committee.

For the party, it would be better if hocke did not run for office, "because we first have to act with our full strength in realpolitik here in the bundestag," felser told the deutsche presse-agentur.

The afd intends to hold a delegates’ party congress in hanover on 2. December elections for a new federal executive committee. Since frauke petry left the party at the end of september, the sole chairman has been jorg meuthen, head of the baden-wurttemberg state parliamentary group.

Megaproject will be expensive – and take time

Megaproject will be expensive - and take time

It’s going to be a real megaproject. From today on, it will occupy baunach and the other member communities of the administrative community (VG), i.E. Gerach, lauter and reckendorf, for another ten years. And it will be expensive. We are talking about the general renovation of the school in baunach. At a meeting of the administrative community, the current plans were presented in more detail.

Almost exactly four years ago, the first figures were heard at a VG meeting. And they ensured absolute silence in the meeting room at that time. An architect engaged at the time for a feasibility study spoke of total costs of eleven million euros for the general renovation of the baunach elementary and middle school. And today? In the meantime, the contract has been awarded to another architectural firm, which had already clearly contradicted this figure during the application phase – the new architect, peter kuchenreuther, uses completely different figures. At the special meeting of the VG assembly in the burgerhaus lechner-brau in baunach, 22 million euros were mentioned, plus around one million euros for evacuation rooms in containers and other necessary interim measures.

Kuchenreuther presented the general renovation in four construction phases (BA), each of which will last two years starting in 2021. Start with the elementary school (BA 1), followed by the administration wing and the first part of the middle school (BA 2). Then came the rough school hall as well as the remaining part of the middle school to the row (left building part, BA 3), finally the gymnasium and swimming hall (BA 4). In order to be able to accommodate the schools during the construction phase, kuchenreuther suggested setting up containers on the hard court to the north of the playground, but also the cross-use of rooms was necessary – middle school students would thus have to use rooms in the elementary school, and vice versa.
