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.

Church blossoms as a nursery

church blossoms as a nursery

Carnival in the church, is that possible at all?? In ebelsbach, this format already has a long tradition. On carnival sunday, many of the church visitors came to the "gartnerei sankt magdalena" in colorful costumes or masks. There, they experienced an unusual service, including a sketch with the "kirchgartner and the clown and a sermon on butter.

Even the entrance was special with marching music: accompanied by the altar boys, the garden team followed with pastor mathias rusin and deacon joachim stapf as church gardeners, joined by claudia reinwand in the role of the clown.

He had already seen many a scarecrow and weed on the way in: "I see very small plants there. Then I see flowers that are almost dead and a few strange birds in between, which are probably not deterred by the many scarecrows. But i see very few young, vigorous plants."

Out of the country, into the city!

Out of the country, into the city!

The idea sounds idyllic: living in the green, the peace and quiet, just birdsong – a natural living environment for daughter elena-maria (3). But when michael and anette schlosser move from wurzburg to kirchehrenbach, the young parents soon realize that "the expectations we had were not fulfilled after all. She is disappointed to note that "as a newcomer, it's hard to fit into the established social structures. It's not easy to find friends and acquaintances, he explains. "We are not club people!" The result: the schlosser family travels to forchheim more and more often – to stroll, shop and take advantage of the offers for children. This is also available in kirchehrenbach, explains the father, "but only to a limited extent. Moreover: "the way to work is shorter in the city". So what had to come was: the schlossers closed with kirchehrenbach and moved to forchheim. They bought a corner house and recently started living in the heart of the city – far away from the workplace! As far as the purchase price is concerned, michael schlosser nuchtern draws the balance: "in kirchehrenbach the prices per square meter are lower than in forchheim – but the plots of land in the countryside are too coarse and therefore also expensive at the bottom line". In addition: in the city, the land price is at least stable in value, whereas in the countryside, it is falling. "The sum of it all has told us: we fit better into the city. Here you are more flexible in every situation – even in old age"

Plea for country life

The ebert family has moved from nurnberg to the countryside. Quite deliberately. "We wanted to settle down with our children where our offspring had room to play – and where we were still close to forchheim", explains christian ebert. The place of choice is schlaifhausen, where they live in the countryside with a view of the walberla – but that's not entirely by chance: because christian ebert comes from forchheim and the plot of land in the countryside already belonged to his parents. The young family appreciates the "overly small neighborhood". Silvia ebert feels good: "we are well integrated – especially through the children". School in wiesenthau is just outside the door for son ben (7) and daughter sinja (9). "It's worth it to us, say the parents – although both have to commute to nurnberg for work. There is no reason for them to move back to the city.

We eat chinese food every day

we eat chinese food every day

T omate pulp and apple juice concentrate, garlic, spices and casings for german sausages, asparagus, tangerines and other fruit, whether canned, jarred or deep-frozen: all this is increasingly being imported cheaply from the far east. And german consumers have no idea what all comes from china: hardly any manufacturers label it, because that is not mandatory for processed foodstuffs. If they are peeled, snipped, dried, ground, frozen or boiled down, the origin does not have to be indicated. The customer can’t tell where the various ingredients for discount bread, jam, ketchup and sausage come from.

A law against cheating packages

From april 2020, a new law will ban at least one apparently deliberate consumer swap across europe. Then the true country of origin must be indicated when the packaging suggests that the product came from another country. So if, for example, the tomato paste tube "made in italy" if the tomatoes are from china and the food is in italian national colors and italian terms, it must be on the tube. Tomatoes are one of china’s top food exports. Garlic another: 80 percent of the world’s production comes from china (see graphic in the picture gallery).

In garlic country near nurnberg, on the other hand, almost no garlic is grown. Mario jonke of the franken-gemuse knoblauchsland cooperative explains that the little that is harvested goes fresh directly to the end consumer. The name did not come specifically from garlic, but probably either from the knobloch family or from the smell of the area: there are many onion plants here. "With leeks, regionality is the name of the game." Tomatoes are also grown here – also for the fresh market, where the growing region must be labeled. "The problem is that the origin of many products does not have to be stated on the label." But not only: "people say they want regional products, but in the end they only look at the price." And the price of chinese goods is usually unbeatable.

Poll:criticism of trump’s corona crisis management grows

Poll:criticism of trump's corona crisis management grows

In a poll released friday by the washington post and ABC, 60 percent said they were negative about trump’s handling of the pandemic, while only 38 percent said they supported trump’s approach. At the end of may, 53 percent were still negative and 46 percent positive. In march, a narrow majority (51 percent) had approved of trump’s action, while 45 percent had rejected it.

Trump adviser kellyanne conway attributed the drop in ratings to the fact that the president no longer appears at corona briefings. It was no coincidence that scores were higher when trump himself raised the corona virus issue, conway told reporters on friday. "The people want to hear from the president of the united states. It doesn’t have to be every day, it doesn’t have to be for two hours, but from my point of view it has to be."Trump had made two day appearances at briefings of the weiben house coronavirus task force. The working group’s briefings are now almost non-existent, and when they do take place, it is without trump.

In the survey, 63 percent said it was more important to control the spread of the virus than to revive the economy. 33 percent expressed the opposite view. At the end of may, these figures were 57 percent and 37 percent, respectively. Trump seeks return to normalcy as quickly as possible to get economy moving again, despite tens of thousands of new corona traps a day. He is running for a second term in the presidential election in november.

Old shares can bring in a lot of money

Old shares can bring in a lot of money

It is only a slightly yellowed sheet of paper. An old bond that is no longer worth anything on the stock exchange.

And yet the historic paper with the original signature of the US industrialist andrew carnegie is a very special treasure: it is at least 25 years old.000 euros worth.

"This bond from 1901 has all the characteristics of a top piece of jewelry. It is rare, almost 117 years old and bears the original signature of the owner," says matthias schmitt. He is chairman of the historisches wertpapierhaus (HWPH), which auctioned these and almost 930 other old share and bond certificates to the highest bidders in wurzburg on saturday.

Grafenbergbahn is closed for a long time

Grafenbergbahn is closed for a long time

As the deutsche bahn announced on monday, the grafenbergbahn has already been closed since saturday until presumably sunday, 10. December, no train service possible between kalchreuth (erlangen-hochstadt district) and grafenberg. The reason is "short-term necessary work on a railroad embankment".
Between kalchreuth and eschenau, the railroad embankment was soaked over a length of 100 meters due to water ingress. The embankment must therefore be stabilized by means of embankments. For the duration of the work, which is expected to take three weeks, all trains of the grafenbergbahn between kalchreuth and grafenberg will be replaced by buses. The trains between nurnberg-nordost and kalchreuth run regularly.
In a press release, thorsten glauber (), a member of the forchheim parliament, expressed surprise that nothing was known about the closure of the grafenberg railroad line. This regretted a spokeswoman for the railroad on monday, but affirmed that already on friday this information to the public in the form of a "route agent" to have sent.
But grafenberg’s grunen city councilor matthias striebich and glauber argue that the announced rail replacement service is not working. The spokeswoman said that deutsche bahn was not aware of any delays for commuters and schoolchildren: "we regret that the replacement service on monday morning did not work out satisfactorily and apologize to our passengers for the inconvenience. In coordination with our bus company, we are trying to ensure that sufficient capacity will be available as of tuesday."
In an e-mail to klaus-dieter josel, the authorized representative of deutsche bahn in bavaria, glauber writes: "as discussed in our telephone conversation today, it is incomprehensible to me as a transport politician how haphazardly deutsche bahn is organizing rail replacement services. If a line closure such as that of the line to grafenberg were to last until 10. December becomes necessary, i expect that the bus replacement service including the school request is organized according to demand." For believers, this means that the requirements of several hundred students must be guaranteed at all times. "It is unacceptable for schools to stand at bus stops for hours – especially in november and december", let believers know in the letter. He expects a "smooth and traffic-safe operation of both the school request and the rail replacement traffic until the end of the track closure".
After consultation with the district office of forchheim, glauber further learned that the public transport department (opnv) had not been informed about the track closure. Since the district has transferred its school heritage requirement to the grafenberg railroad, the mdl finds it all the more incomprehensible that the subject area was not informed. In a press release, grafenberg city councilor matthias striebich denounces "unacceptable conditions" on the grafenberg railroad. He proposes a joint action of the affected communities to explain to the german railroad the "dramatic situation" to drive in front of eyes.
Matthias striebich of the "grafenberger oberland" local association alliance 90/the greens writes: "it can’t go on like this. It is an imposition. We have already had constant disruptions, train failures and hour-long delays for weeks. Now the rail replacement transport is miserably organized, although there were now several days to prepare this."
According to striebich, people wait for hours for the bus, then one arrives, but it is jam-packed from igensdorf onwards. The connection to the train does not work either. It took passengers up to three hours to make the one-way trip and they were pissed off accordingly.

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.
