Great nativity play in lindau

The lindau village community had once again gone to a lot of trouble for its 29. Doreihnacht given. Already one hour before the beginning of the nativity play, there was a lively hustle and bustle at and between the numerous stands. The 16 actors, who already mingled with the crowd and were marveled at in their costumes (wolfram broeder-muller was responsible for this), contributed to a relaxed atmosphere, especially by the small visitors. On the village square there was not only something for the physical enjoyment, but also a rough selection of christmas decorations, which were tinkered by the lindau women.

Attentive silence fell when the lindau-feuln-waizendorf choir with its conductor christian knorrer sang the "andachtsjodler" tuned. Then "the sheet metal" took over of the trebgaster trombone choir (conducted by werner grabner), before the newly formed "tanzmause" (dance mice) the TDC showed what they had learned with their trainers katharina heidrich and karin pfeiff.

During the nativity play, what the prophets had already proclaimed at that time seemed familiar to the audience today. "Everybody whines bluus all the time, but nobody does anything", said one of them. The shepherds grumbled because their work was getting harder and harder "while the romans were living on their own dime and wanting to raise more and more." Joseph and his heavily pregnant fiancee maria set out on the slow journey to bethlehem to register there.

The never realized memorial sketch

The never realized memorial sketch

The sketch still lies in the archives of the felix-muller museum. Peter lichtenberger, the director of the neunkirchner museum, opens the bottom drawer of a steel cabinet and pulls out the charcoal drawing. It shows the head of the prophet jeremiah surrounded by flames above two tablets of the law and a fallen menorah. Muller, who died in 1997, had made the drawing in 1974 and revised it in 1980; it was the preliminary design for a bronze relief that was to stand on the synagogue square.

Since mayor franz stumpf (CSU/WUO) announced in the summer that he wanted to build a private apartment building on the former synagogue site, the discussion about the memorial on the site in wiesentstrabe has not ended.
The story of felix muller's relief sketch shows that this debate about a worthy memorial is not new. Uta kagermeier, a teacher from forchheim, had dealt with the work of felix muller in her admission thesis in 1984. It refers to the draft "for the memorial to be erected on 9. Synagogue in forchheim" blown up on november 1938 the memorial was "intended for execution in bronze" but for incomprehensible reasons, the city of forchheim paid no attention", writes kagermeier.

Felix muller reacted bitterly to the disregard of his design proposals. This is shown by the brieechsel with his friend, the forchheim VHS co-founder and school principal august schaduz.

Spd wants 500 additional nursing beds

SPD district chairman and city councilor felix holland wants to counter the growing shortage of nursing care in bamberg with 500 additional nursing places. "We see an urgent need for action in the area of nursing care. If we do not take suitable measures now, the existing shortage of skilled workers will turn into a nursing shortage in the coming years, according to holland.

According to the SPD, there will be a shortage of over 500 care places in the city by 2030. For this reason, the SPD city council faction will ask the administration to submit proposals on how the deficit can be reduced. "A number of influences will lead to a shortage of care places for citizens of bamberg in need of care by 2030, which is why countermeasures must be taken now", emphasizes holland.

As the district chairman makes clear, the legal requirements of the nursing and residential care quality act, such as the prescribed quality requirements, safety regulations and the single-room quotas, have led to a reduction in the current number of available nursing places. "The impending supply bottleneck is exacerbated by the already existing shortage of skilled workers, by demographic change and by the influx into our city," says kuhnemuth, according to holland.

Hammelburg tennis club is happy about two titles and a strong round

Hammelburg tennis club is happy about two titles and a strong round

The hammelburg tennis cracks have finished the summer round in lower franconia partly successfully. Nine teams took part, five of which were from the youth team. Two teams made it to the top.
The high point of the season came on the last day of the season. It was about the group victory of the ladies and the midcourt U10 team, the youngest. The latter competed at TSV karlstadt. Levin lubbecke won against anton kaufmann 4:1, 4:0, kenno bedenk even 4:0, 4:0 against ben schramm. The doubles levin lubbecke/luca holzinger against anton kaufmann/ben schramm made the overall success perfect with a 4:0, 4:0.

Final against knetzgau

In the women’s competition of the kreisklasse 3, in which only teams of four play, the hammelburg women had to deal with TC knetzgau at home. The latter had inflicted the only defeat of the season on table-toppers and co-favorites TC BW bad neustadt. The latter were free of play; so the hammelburger women could pass by with at least a 5:1 win.
Caro lubbecke met the top player from knetzgau, selina fischbacher, ranked four performance classes higher. She delivered her best match so far with bite and routine. With 6:3 and 6:0 swept them fischbacher uberraschend from the field. In the second singles ruxandra atzmuller met larissa summank. The variable game of the technician atzmuller was not up to summank at 6:1 and 6:0. In the third singles match, simone drilling and melanie schafer faced each other. After the clear 6:0 in the first set, the second set took place at eye level. In the end drilling prevailed with 6:3. The fourth singles match was won by eva schiffner against christine dirschbacher 6:1, 6:2, also due to a strong performance.

Bringing home the doubles

Now the home team did not want to leave anything to chance in the doubles. The experienced hanne kamp met schafer/dirschbacher with caro lubbecke. And they love those with 6:1 and 6:0 no chance. The group victory was perfect. The second doubles match between atzmuller/drilling and dirschbacher/symmank was only a matter of form with 6:1, 6:2.
With these two championships, the season balance was satisfactory. The injury-plagued hammelburg men finished second to last in bezirksklasse 2 and are likely to be relegated to kreisklasse 1. In the district league the men 40 were overstrained. With only one victory they finished last: relegation to the bezirksklasse 1. The men’s 50 were beaten only by the late group winner TC gochsheim in the bezirksklasse 1; they finished second.

Vw gets off to a flying start in the usa: best sales since 1974

By contrast, industry leader general motors had a hard time convincing customers to buy. The sales of its arch-rival shrank surprisingly.

VW sold 27,200 cars of its parent brand, one and a half times as many as in the same month of the previous year. "Our growth strategy is working," north america boss jonathan browning said on wednesday. The german company had tailored its new models to the tastes of its U.S. Customers. In addition, VW lowered its base prices and caused a stir with imaginative advertising, for example at the super bowl, the final of the american professional football league and the most important sporting event in the u.S.

The wolfsburg company even built a completely new plant in chattanooga in the state of tennessee, where the u.S. Passat, which is rougher than its european namesake, is manufactured. In view of the rubbing sales, VW is now increasing production and adding 200 more people to its workforce. Currently, around 2,500 people work at the factory.

Weir is well rested again

The new fire truck costs 435 000 euro; it was requested with a grant from the state of bavaria in the amount of 137 000 euro and a county grant of 30 000 euro. This was explained by mayor siegfried decker (NG) to numerous neighboring fire departments, who came with guests of honor to the handover of the new HLF 20 in the fire station.

The purchase was necessary, as the mayor explained, because the previous LF 16 tanker had already been in service for 28 years. Pastor stefan schleicher put the new vehicle under the blessing of god. Commander harald fischer referred to three years of planning for the HLF 20, which began with the decision by the municipal council in october 2016. In the same month a first contact with heinrich hallhuber from the company lentner in hohenlinden took place. After that, a partner fire department was found in the form of the himmelkron fire department, with whom the procurement was carried out jointly and cost-effectively.

In october 2018 the companies lentner, scania from oberschleibheim and ludwig from bindlach were awarded the contract. In february 2020 the HLF 20 could be picked up in lenting.

Louder: a strabe only with girls

Louder: a strabe only with girls

The strabe "an der zeil in lauter, it must have been quite something: in the last ten years, "only" heifers have been built there girl born into the world. The last time there was a male offspring was 20 years ago.
After little luisa recently became the ninth little girl to move into the zeil, fire department commander matthias nurnberger and local councilor siegbert fehr finally started to think about it.

"The street must be renamed", nurnberger presented his proposal to the community representative in a convivial atmosphere. And he already had the right name at the ready. The street could actually only "an der buchs" heiben.
He didn't have to do much convincing with fehr, who, like nurnberger, is available for any kind of talk.
So said – done: the official rededication was made. At the hour of celebration even a few zaungaste came, who followed the act with a grin.

"Municipality-free area"
Formerly "an der zeil, now an der buchs, had been declared a municipality-free area in advance by the residents. What's more, it's "mei gebiet, says local speaker fehr (he is also affected, grandfather of a girl) on inquiry. Therefore, it was not necessary to obtain the official consent of the market town of burkardroth.

Csu/fwg take a close look at the himmelkroner industrial park

The discussion about the planned 24 hectare commercial area himmelkron nord" goes into the next round. According to deputy mayor harald peetz, the announcement by the citizens’ initiative to initiate its own referendum was decisive for a "fact check" of CSU and G.

With an attached chronology of the municipal council decisions, the CSU/G faction also shows that the commercial area in question has a long history and was already a topic in 1993 when possible expansion areas of the municipality of himmelkron were determined.

Harald peetz: "this also makes it clear that this development was not just born in the last few weeks." Peetz referred to the decision of the municipal council of 3.
