August left behind on the land in bammersdorf. "The police and the district office forchheim are compiling the results", said on friday stefan loch, the manager of the eggolsheim community center.
As reported, there had been complaints about the larms and about the fact that such a dance festival was not allowed to take place in a protected area.

Approaching the organizers

The lower nature conservation authority headed by karin lammlein has meanwhile "inspected" the area of the dance event, says kathrin schurr, the press spokeswoman for the district office. In the next step, the official nature conservationists approached the summer dance organizers. "Contact was also made with the municipality."
The lower nature conservation authority has so far drawn public conclusions on only one point: "the summer dance was not permitted in the way it took place", says kathrin schurr. And this is not because the event "in the eaves area on a nature conservation valuable flat" had taken place. Therefore, the authorities had to be involved in advance.

While karin lammlein takes the view that the lower nature conservation authority was not involved, eggolsheim manager stefan loch emphasizes: "our employees not only gave a lot of thought to the summer dance, but also notified the authority of the event. The district office was involved."

One month after the sinking of the "costa concordia", the pumping out of the oil from the ship’s tanks has begun. The work was brought forward from monday to sunday because the weather had improved, the authorities announced on sunday evening. The tanks contain more than 2300 tons of fuel, mainly environmentally harmful heavy oil. Preparations for pumping out the water have been underway for weeks, but bad weather always put a spoke in the wheel of the salvage experts from the dutch company smit.

The pumping is expected to take about 28 days, weather permitting. The start of the work is the first concrete sign of the commitment of authorities and companies to protect the island of giglio from environmental damage, it hailed in an official statement.

Alleged eyewitness: bin laden killed himself

The al-qaeda chief was not killed by U.S. Soldiers last may, but had already been found dead with a bullet in his head, according to the internet portal "huffington post" in the book of a former member of the U.S. Special forces navy seals, who, according to his own statements, was present during the commando operation in abbottabad, pakistan.

According to the weiben haus, bin laden had "resisted" the storming of his house and was then killed by U.S. Soldiers with shots to the chest and head. The author of the book, which is to be published in early september, describes the events differently. "Blood and brain matter flowed from the side of his skull" when they discovered bin laden, the book "no easy day: the firsthand account of the mission that killed osama bin laden" says, according to the huffington post.

Bin laden still squirmed, but there was no talk of resistance. When they reached his room, two women had bent over his body, crying. Other soldiers in the elite unit had their guns pointed at his chest and printed several times. "The bullets tore him apart, hammering his body to the ground until he was motionless," the portal continues quoting from the work. I have received it in advance from a bookseller.

Rate should revise the decision

Rate should revise the decision

Regarding the discussion about the extension of the state road 2182 near folschnitz, we have received the following letter: to say it right away: I consider the planned extension of the state road irresponsible! This applies to the partial expansion over the 160 meters with a total width of 8.5 meters (so far it is only five meters), as well as to the in a few years then inevitably following even coarser full expansion. Every time a road is extended, the opposite of what the initiators are aiming for is achieved.

Widening and straightening will never reduce the danger of a road. The road will be driven even faster. Accidents will be more frequent and the consequences more dramatic, especially with oncoming traffic.

Here there is only one "neuralgic" bottleneck that should be eliminated. This is the 40 meter long concrete wall that was put up for no reason by the tram construction office a few years ago. The curves, on the other hand, are not bottlenecks. They are – if you drive sensibly – not dangerous either. On the contrary: they prevent even faster driving and thus make the road even safer.
