Weibenbrunn school will soon be barrier-free

In the town council meeting on tuesday in the town hall, the committee made another important decision on the barrier-free expansion of the elementary school. The committee awarded the construction of a multifunctional lift/staircase system (level teachers’ room with 1. Upper floor of the school building) to the most economically advantageous offer from the company berndt mobilitatsprodukte, bautzen, at a price of 26873.87 euros.

Peter kropf from the kropf kronach engineering office explained the details. This is a new system of a multifunctional lift/staircase installation. Originally, a wheelchair access elevator was planned, which caused additional construction costs of 16,100 euros. Peter kropf explained that this lift is more economical because it requires much less structural change.

The council also approved the continuation of the budget consolidation concept for the municipality of weibenbrunn in 2019. However, in order to maintain stabilization aids, high mabstabe are applied. Among other things, it states that, in order to regain lasting efficiency and orderly budget management, it will regularly be necessary for the municipality to limit itself to unavoidable expenditures and only provide financial services that it is legally obligated to provide or that cannot be postponed for the continuation of necessary tasks.

The mood on the alm was high

The mood on the alm was high

Kronach the kronach mayoral elections in about a year’s time cast their shadows ahead. The successor to wolfgang beiergroblein, who is no longer a candidate, is determined to be the second mayor. "Representation, representation, always representation – if I’m not elected soon …", she raved on the weekend in the rosenbergalm. "Actually, i already am, at least the mayoress of hearts", so angela hofmann.

However, the panel discussion with the other applicants is still pending. And for those who are interested in this event, we would like to point out that it will not take place in the schutzenhaus, but in the new rewe-markt. There, angela hofmann (CSU) will be found at the salad counter, the other candidate marina schmitt (SPD) will explain her goals in the detergent department, and the male competitor michael zwingmann (freie wahler) will present his intentions as the new head of the city at the meat counter.

Nevertheless, the above statements should be somewhat steamed up, because they fell during the fourth edition of the kronacher derbleck’n. In the style of the munich nockherberg beer festival, the local political celebrities and city events were taken to task under the leadership of a local multi-talent in the field of humor. His name: martin panzer, age 46, sales manager by profession, once president of the kronich fousa night. He is the initiator of this performance, which was brought to life four years ago. He is still the idea giver, the author of the speeches and a contributor himself. And just like four years ago, besides panzer, tina-christin ruger, martin bittruf, philipp mahr, nicolas roth and nikolai hiesl were part of a sextet that made the almhutte shake. Standing ovations from the 320 or so visitors over two days not only at the end, but already after the respective performances.

Sidewalks in altenkunstadt are too narrow – what can be done??

Sidewalks in altenkunstadt are too narrow - what can be done??

How can the area between weismainer strabe and the elementary school be made more attractive?? About a dozen citizens gave their thoughts on this topic on monday evening at the third working meeting on the integrated urban development concept (isek).

While in the past two meetings, the raiffeisenplatz was the center of attention, this time it was other sections of this axis of development of altenkunstadt. "The immediate area around the raiffeisenbank is certainly the focal point of altenkunstadt’s new center. But it is also defined by other areas of the development axis between weismainer strabe and elementary school", emphasized the hofer architect hans greim. Together with him and landscape architect susanne augsten from naila, the citizens mentally walked along the axis to look for problems and possible improvements in design.

The sidewalks in the rechtsanwalt-kraub-strabe are too narrow for wheelchair and rollator users as well as parents with strollers. How to find a remedy? Mayor robert hummer (CSU) proposed to reroute the pedestrian traffic over the fronleichnamsweg and the klosterstrabe respectively the missionsstrabe and the langheimer strabe. "It is illusory for fubgangers to embark on a detour. Nobody does that", objected local councillor ludwig winkler of the free burghers of the districts (FBO). His suggestion: the roadway should be narrowed to create a walkway on one side of the street.

Yogurt danone produces yogurt and desserts at the ochsenfurt dairy for all of europe. The employees and dairy manager johannes kogut have a lot to do before the milk becomes yogurt.

Only a dozen employees were allowed to add the most important ingredient to the milk. To turn it into yogurt, it all depends on the culture. Fermentation is the longest production step at danone’s dairy in ochsenfurt, germany. "It’s not witchcraft, but you need experience," says johannes kogut. The 41-year-old runs the dairy. His favorite flavor is mocha. But that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. "You either love him or you hate him," he says with a smile.

As experience in the dairy shows, even the tastes of men and women are quite different. Women like it lighter. You don’t want to be around a good yogurt. With men it’s easier: the main thing is that it tastes good, no matter how high the fat content is. Strab interviews and blind tastings have confirmed this, says susanne knittel, head of corporate communications.

On a flight from houston to new york, a puppy dog died after flight attendants relegated it to a overhead compartment. The airline involved, united airlines, said tuesday that it took full responsibility for the incident and would investigate.

Safety of the animal was still guaranteed

"This was a tragic accident that should never have happened, as pets should never be placed in a packed compartment", said spokesman charles hobart.
Passenger june lara wrote on facebook that flight attendants had insisted on keeping the french bulldog on board for three hours on monday – without air supply. They had given assurances that the safety of the animal was assured, so the owner, who was flying with her two daughters, finally agreed. The dog had made no more movements or sounds after landing.

Why satellites do not fall from the sky?

Why satellites do not fall from the sky?

The summer vacations have finally begun and many of us are taking off for our vacations by car. We travel hundreds of kilometers to enjoy the sun on the beach, for example. But the far away vacation destination is sometimes not so easy to find. That's why some people use a navigation system that knows the way to their vacation. Such a smart companion can be really useful.

However, the navigation system only knows the correct route with help from space. Because up there, far above us, satellites are flying, telling the navigation system the right route to take.

Launching with a rocket
"The word satellite comes from latin, the language of the ancient romans, and means 'companion'.", explains doctoral student tobias beuchert. Satellites fly around the earth in their orbit. So the satellites accompany the earth.

As a small reward there were cinema vouchers for the winners.

A hunt? A slaughter!

A hunt? A slaughter!

When the queen travels, journalists are there – that’s true today, it was true almost 175 years ago. "The illustrated london news" reported, for example, in words and pictures on the journey of queen victoria and prince albert to coburg and gotha in the summer of 1845. At that time (as today) the press was not squeamish when it came to criticizing and scandalizing. That victoria and albert took part in a "set hunt" during their visit to the gotha district of germany was heavily criticized in england.

In the discontinued hunt, the game is carefully driven into a forest stump bordering on an open field several days beforehand. Both the forest stucco and a piece of the open area are closed off with cloth and nets, so that the game can no longer get out. In the open space there is a pavilion from which the hunting guests push as soon as the game is massively driven out of the forest onto the open space.

Sliding to waltz music

200 pieces of game had the forsters of duke ernst II. The duke and his 20 (male) hunting guests shot 48 of them; another 18 pieces of game, which were shot, were killed during the search. For the illustrated london news this hunt was a "slaughter, the game "is shot by a society that stands at a table as if in a salon and listens to waltzes and polkas by straub hort".
