technical problems: disco opening in hochstadt cancelled

It was to be the mega party of the year. For weeks, the hochstadt discotheque cue had been advertising its new opening on the first weekend of advent with posters all over the district. Something completely new was to be built on around 2,000 square meters on the site of the former pulse station. "We're going full throttle at the start, josias ritter, the company's managing director, recently announced on our site.

The concept was well received by young people from hochstadt and the surrounding area. The discotheque already has 3300 fans on facebook, 1800 party-goers even pledged their participation in the rough opening weekend. A good two weeks earlier, the site on kieferndorfer weg was still a rough construction site. And the city was not yet officially involved in the plan at that time either. "We have a tight window between now and the opening weekend, but there's a top team here, and i'm very confident we'll get everything done in time.", ritter still estimated at this time.

Anger among fans
On friday evening, however, came the gross humiliation: three hours before the start of admission, the organizers announced that the opening would have to be postponed due to a security defect. This announcement caused an uproar on the internet. Above all, the announcement at such short notice was met with incomprehension. "We tried as long as we could to solve the problem", the responsible persons explain this fact and put a corresponding detailed report online on saturday evening.

They do not only distribute food

They do not only distribute food

Manfred seigner was only wearing a cap, but he still took his hat off to helene schamann and the other strong women who make sure that those in need in kitzinge get something to eat. Eight ladies stand behind tables twice a week in the mainbernheimer strabe and distribute food and good words.
Helene schamann is one of three team leaders who, together with chairman manfred seigner, take care of the coordination at the kitzinger tafel, and she is one of three founding members of the local association. It's been going on for ten years now, and helene schamann, like seigner and anna ewert, has been a part of it from the very beginning. "It's just a good team," she says, she senior says about the current troupe. "Everyone deserved this light."
With a smile on her face, she received the christmas light from irma biebl of the city marketing association and "laudator" manfred hergert accepted – with reservation. "You couldn't get anything done here on your own, she said and insisted on accepting the small gift only on behalf of all the others. Dean schmerl had asked the kitzinger woman at that time if she was not interested in founding a kitzinger tafel association and getting involved there. Helene schamann, who lives alone, was immediately enthusiastic about the idea and still is today. "I think it's good to be able to help someone who isn't doing as well as we are", declares them. "You have to be glad that you have the strength and are healthy to be able to do something like this."

Good cohesion
She has also made real friends there. "The cohesion is enormous", she says – the ladies have just been on a winter trip to strabburg. Helene schamann also knows the community from other voluntary work she does, for example with the protestant women's association. "She didn't just pick one, she does a lot more", says manfred seigner, who is enthusiastic about "his" tree women. "They not only talk, but also help out." This is how the food, which is mainly picked up from the discounters in the region, is sorted in the building yard, and vegetables and fruit are cleaned and washed. And then the women stand in the store in mainbernheimer strabe until the evening. "We are glad that there are people like this and want to say thank you with our campaign, also found claudia biebl.

After nuclear and coal, the petrol and diesel phase-out is on the way?

After nuclear and coal, the petrol and diesel phase-out is on the way?

It wasn’t even a year ago when it said: no doubt about the cleanliness of modern diesels. It wasn’t the auto industry that said this, but the ecologically oriented verkehrsclub deutschland (VCD) when it presented its annual car environmental list.

On wednesday, a special edition appeared: only with electric cars. The club no longer wants to know much about diesel and gasoline-only vehicles.

"Every new car with an internal combustion engine that hits the roads today will continue to emit climate-damaging carbon dioxide for the next 15 years," said transport policy spokesman michael muller-gornert. "That’s why the phase-out of gasoline and diesel must take place now."

New building area is to be created

New building area is to be created

"Will people still be happy with it in 50 years??" This question was posed by local councilor franz-josef selig after the local council of wonfurt decided at its meeting on tuesday evening to draw up a development plan for the new "stocklesanger" residential area to put up in wonfurt. For him, the development area is "not cozy enough"; he misses a play street, niches and meeting places where people also feel comfortable, the obligation to install photovoltaic systems, or the prohibition of so-called rock garden. However, because the planning has not yet been completed, mayor holger baunacher asked him to submit concrete proposals.

First, hans-peter burger from the office "konrad und burger, architekten fur stadtplanung" (konrad and burger, architects for urban planning), from dettelbach presented the design. According to this, the building area in the southeast of wonfurt comprises 26 plots for 23 single-family houses and three smaller multi-family houses. The traffic area of the ring-shaped access road, which includes the road, parking lots and sidewalks, has a width of 7.50 meters. The area will be grassed all around, and trees will also be planted along the road. A time-delayed drainage of the straben surface water into the seebach is carried out by rigoles.

Criticism and suggestions

Burger also explained the textual requirements and the noise protection. Baunacher recalled that egon vogt had suggested that rainwater storage be required. "We are still working on that", he informed. The council was told that it is still being clarified whether protection for the trees is necessary.

Not much left of the playground

Not much left of the playground

Brigitte ostermann has lived next to the playground for 33 years and her grandchildren often play there too. At the end of may, a playground equipment and a climbing frame with slide were dismantled. "No longer safe for traffic", the responsible persons at the city of bamberg had judged.

Since then, the children have only a small wooden house and a water pump at their disposal. A table tennis table is still hidden behind a small hedge. "It bothers me that no one comes and cleans the playground anymore. In the past, people from lebenshilfe came once a week and everything was always clean. But now no one cares. Only very rarely does anyone from the city come and they only clear away the most necessary things", declares birgitte ostermann.

No one had been informed about the dismantling of the playground and the residents of the quarter had not received any answer to questions about the future of the playground from the city.
" There are many children in the neighborhood, so the playground here is ideal and is also often used. We would like to see the place spruced up again, even though we no longer have any small children in the house ourselves", says a couple who live in the neighborhood.

Faith succeeds in community

Sunday walk

There are people who appeal to many others. They can talk well, they know the reality of my life, they can empathize well with me. So there are also congregations that can experience the service as a weekly festival. You see, worship does not mean the constant repetition of the same prayers and songs.

In such communities there is no boredom. Wherever people in our congregations experience worship as a celebration, they come to church with joy.

People are looking for the festival. So also in our church the service on sunday could be every time a feast of the erlosung.

Nowitzki shines in schroder premiere in nba

Nowitzki saw schroder off with a few kind words and a shoulder slap in the dressing room. At the start of his 16. In the nba season, the star of the dallas mavericks proved in the duel with the atlanta hawks and the newcomer from braunschweig that there is no german wake-up call for a long time yet.

With 24 points and his usual nerves of steel in the final phase, nowitzki led the texans to a 118-109 opening victory over the team from georgia, for which the 20-year-old schroder celebrated a decent debut. "That was only game one of 82," nowitzki stressed, however. "I told the guys: we’re not going to finish the year 0:82, that’s gross. It is still early, but we are offensively capable of such nights, that is good to know."

With three fingers extended in the air, the wurzburg native celebrated his second made distance shot in half a minute to secure the mavs victory with 90 seconds remaining. But schroder also provided highlights with five points, five assists and four rebounds in 18 minutes: only three seconds after he had completely missed the ring on a jump shot in a direct duel with nowitzki, he ice-coldly sank his first NBA three-pointer.

Energy transition has powerful force in habfurt

Energy transition has powerful force in habfurt

Although the habfurt municipal utility is not only a supplier of electricity, 75 percent of which is already generated from renewable energy sources for its tariff and commercial customers, it is also a supplier of energy from renewable sources. It also supplies natural gas, district heating and water, operates an old-town garage, an adventure pool and an ice rink, and is affiliated with schnell-im-netz gmbh" one provider for internet access.

The municipal utility is already involved in wind power and photovoltaic plants, the biogas plant in habfurt and combined heat and power (CHP), and already offers natural electricity at 100 percent from wind power. "We have more and more days on which we generate all our energy from renewable sources during the day", according to norbert zosch. "From 2014, all our tariff and commercial customers will be supplied with 100 percent energy from wind power, photovoltaics, the biogas plant and combined heat and power plants."

No need to change supplier
Thanks to a cooperation with greenpeace energy, customers can already obtain electricity that is 100 percent renewable without having to switch suppliers. In contrast to many other eco-electricity providers, the electricity supplied is generated directly in the region. The electricity comes from the bayerhof wind turbine and, when there is a lull in the wind, from the cogeneration plant at the leisure center in habfurt.

Plaintiffs accuse bp of deliberate substitution during oil disaster

Plaintiffs accuse bp of deliberate substitution during oil disaster

The trial will focus on the question of how much oil actually gushed into the sea after the explosion of the BP-leased deepwater horizon platform. On monday, the second phase of the proceedings began in new orleans (u.S. State of louisiana).

"BP intentionally misrepresented its knowledge of the oil flow with the intent to barter," a court document from the plaintiff’s side states, according to the bloomberg news agency. As a result, the leak was sealed weeks later than it could have been.

According to bloomberg, BP is talking about 390 million liters of spilled ols, the u.S. Government about 668 million – that’s 71 percent more. The amount of oil spilled could significantly affect the high threat of bub and fines for the corporation. In addition, it will be investigated whether BP has done everything possible and necessary to dam up the oil flow.

“More attention for families”

Supporting families, challenging them and creating good living conditions for them – that is the core task of the new family representative of the city of bamberg, caroline lang. In the spring, she took over from gisela filkorn, who went into well-deserved retirement after twelve years. This week, the 33-year-old lawyer came to the town hall for her inaugural visit to the mayor of kitzingen, andreas stark (SPD).

"As a family representative, I would like to get involved with families and draw more political attention to the needs of families", lang emphasized at her meeting with the city’s chief executive. She wanted to focus on the family-friendliness of the entire city.

One of her heartfelt concerns is the realization of sufficient childcare facilities. In addition, lang wanted to encourage families to approach the family advisory council more strongly in order to express their wishes and needs. "For this reason, I will set up an idea collector in the information desk at the town hall, where anyone can post their concerns, in order to keep the inhibition threshold as low as possible.", says lang.
