With a lot of verve

With a lot of verve

Overnight: a good place to rest your head after a strenuous mountain biking or hiking tour is the berghaus rhon in the black mountains.

In the morning:

It makes sense to get up early – there is a lot to see: from the basalt lake to the primeval forest there is something for every adventurer. And the best: whether on fub or on mountain bike, the network of paths through the black mountains inspire women. The natural forest reserve at losershag is particularly worth seeing. The impressive nature is a great pleasure even in bad weather. We recommend stopping at the kissinger hut for a bite to eat at lunchtime. For those who want to go further, the gemundner hutte on the kreuzberg is a must.

Afternoon program:

Who is into action, has there the possibility to get into the flowtrail to bischofsheim. Don't worry: no one has to pedal up the kreuzberg. There is a regular bus service with bicycle transportation. If the flow trail is too extreme for you, you have the possibility to venture into the climbing forest at the neustadter haus: up to 12 meters in the air. Even though spa in nature is usually difficult to realize, there are ways to relax. Above sandberg – there is a rough kneipp facility with a wonderful view.

The week: handcuffs in the springtime

The week: handcuffs in the springtime

One had almost missed it. After the easter vacations, the traffic lights in kitzingen were still glowing red. On the way to work every morning for a week (!) every traffic light (!) on the B 8 red. Red, red, red – in the end you believe in hallucinatory disturbances.

Now only one thing helps: away with all the traffic lights. Away with the supposedly intelligent crossings. Away with the expensive traffic computer and the rest of the hocus pocus. A policeman at every crossroads – that would be the most effective way.

We stay a little longer in kitzingen and approach another problem: the train alarm. The eselsberg is particularly hard hit. The residents there wondered why it was getting louder and louder between wurzburg and nurnberg in spite of the noise barrier. As it looks, a larmschutzwand is upside down according to a bahn spokesman – so you could talk about a larmverstarkerwand.

Eight counterfeit cameras confiscated

Eight counterfeit cameras confiscated

The VW, which was occupied by five rumanians, was noticed by the officers on sunday afternoon on highway 3 in the area of the biebelrieder kreuz interchange. When the police inspected the gulf, they stumbled upon six brand-new camcorders and two sony handycams. However, it quickly became clear that these were cheap imitations.

The oldest of the quintet, which claims to have spent several weeks in belgium and is now on its way home, finally admitted that the plagiarisms belonged to him. Now the 38-year-old is being investigated for, among other things, a violation of trademark law. Only after paying a security deposit of several hundred euros and securing the cameras was he finally allowed to continue the journey with his companions.

In this context, the police draws attention to the fraudulent sale of counterfeit products and cheap goods: please refrain from such purchases, as the supposed snaps quickly turn out to be a mispurchase. In addition to the financial damage, the citizens are often at considerable risk because of the lack of quality in the operation of the equipment. The machines do not have any safety tests and do not carry any of the prestigious labels such as the GS or tuv seal. Often even these seals are forged.

Whether the aforementioned gang can still be found in the bright red telephone booth opposite the ice cream parlor on saturday? Hopefully not. After all, the idea of the book barrier is to ensure a high, preferably continuous turnover. One book in, one book out – that’s the ideal formula for how these free book exchanges work.

Together with the branch st. Kunigund of the city library and its director monika cobb, the burgerverein gartenstadt is a pioneer in bamberg with this bookcase.

Puma’s janitor has left

Puma's janitor has left

Michael busch heinz matthaus is dead. The father of herzogenaurach soccer player lothar matthaus died last wednesday at the age of 88. He was born on 29. November 1930.

Even if he has always remained in the background, at least in herzogenaurach he was just as well known as his son. Not under his real birth name "karl, but as "heinz he was and is known. After the war, he came to herzogenaurach. In hofen, the refugee was accepted and quickly made friends, as he was a talented organizer. "Heinz also organized sugar in tuchenbach – a valuable rarity at that time – and brought the first stable rabbits home", so his companion werner bedner told during a review of these eventful days after the war in a historical story in the french day.

Kicking boys

In the course of time, heinz matthaus started working for the sporting goods manufacturer puma. The family lived next to the company headquarters on wurzburger strabe. Companions remember that the two sons wolfgang and lothar were always allowed to kick there. That probably didn’t always go off without a hitch. The brose told the press: "the ball often flew into dirt puddles and then bounced against the yellow house wall. At some point, the from print was ubersat." Sometimes his father had to secretly replace a pane when a shot went wrong. "Puma and the name matthaus – they belong together in herzogenaurach", said lothar matthaus, when he once visited the central office there. As a janitor, the senior was known not only to the company’s employees.

Strabenbeitrage abolished – appeal of the city will be decided on tuesday

Strabenbeitrage abolished - appeal of the city will be decided on tuesday

Andreas oswald

Now the city officially announces that from 1. January 2018 no more road expansion charges will be levied in forchheim. Irrespective of this, however, a decision will be made next tuesday at the administrative court in munich as to whether a resident of kasernstrabe is actually right, who had filed a lawsuit against the extension fees and won against the city in the first instance.
Last year, the bayreuth administrative court ruled that kasernstrabe was to be considered a main road and not an adjoining road. It is about 4500 euros, which the city had to pay back to the renter. The city has appealed against this decision, which will now be decided next week in a higher instance in munich.
This decision will also be of interest to the residents of the jagdstrabe, who have filed an objection with fub for the same reason. In its official announcement, however, the city draws attention to the fact that "notices issued before 1 january of the following year will not be considered. The ordinances issued on january 1, 2018, remain valid. The appeals authorities will deal with any legal proceedings that follow in accordance with the regulations in force up to 31 december 2009. December 2017 applicable legal situation decided."
The only thing that is no longer charged is the road construction fee for the renewal or improvement of local roads and public roads with barriers and their illumination.

Further erschliebungsbeitrags

But watch out: "development contributions for the initial final construction of local roads must continue to be levied by the municipalities", according to the city's press release. This also applies to a few local roads in forchheim that have only been provisionally constructed and for which no contribution to the development costs has yet been levied. "If these are finally made, the contributory costs are passed on to the residents at 90 percent", it says in the announcement signed by the mayor uwe kirschstein. As heike fasbender from the building administration explains, this applies, for example, to the new building area on weingartsteig. The von pappenheim- and wallensteinstrabe are also still provisional facilities, which have not yet been settled – this will be done when they are finally built.

Forest kindergarten is coming

At its last meeting, the city council was very positive about the construction of a forest kindergarten in hollfeld. Cordula stadter from treppendorf, who sends a child to the forest kindergarten in streitberg, answered the raten's questions.

For 20 years a club runs the forest kindergarten in streitberg. Up to 25 children are cared for in one group, and the parents are actively involved in the kindergarten's activities through the association. Each group will be supervised by an educator and two part-time staff members. According to cordula stadter, no permanent building is needed, only a shelter, a so-called "schutzhutte". A shelter will be rented for extreme weather conditions.

The town of hollfeld shares the costs of running the forest kindergarten, as it does with the regular kindergartens. The remaining costs are borne by the parents of the children through the association. Mayor karin barwisch said that there is currently a waiting list for enrollment in the existing kindergarten and that the forest kindergarten would be a relief. Regarding the fees raised by city councilor georg rohm, the mayor said that they had to be adjusted to the existing kindergarten. Under no circumstances should a competitive situation arise.
