Things are getting restless in the wine town

Despite the more than limited financial situation of the municipality of seinsheim, mayor heinz dorsch did not lose his smile, even if it became increasingly desperate during the course of the town hall meeting in tiefenstockheim.

The municipal council had already given a lot of thought to the expansion of weinbergsstrabe and bachgasse. In particular, the entrance to weinbergsstrabe near the cemetery is to be given a new face. How the road is to run in the future was painted in color on the asphalt by the municipality last year in time for all saints’ day.

The expected or hoped-for response was largely absent. At the beginning nothing came, then two women had complained to him about it. Now things seem to be getting restless in the tranquil wine town, as it spurs itself and as was then also voiced in the burgers’ meeting. The main criticism of those who wanted to leave it as it is was that parking space was being lost directly in front of the entrance to the cemetery, especially since it was green everywhere and there was no need for another green area in front of the cemetery. The argument of mayor dorsch that there is enough parking space ten meters away was wiped out.

city of kulmbach creates space for traffic circle

And again a piece of old-kulmbach disappears: the former interior design shop symalla in webergasse 15 (corner sutte) is demolished – see a short video here. Not long ago, old houses in buchbindergasse and lower stadtgasschen were flattened. And the "swan brewery cellar in the mirror, a relic of the brewery louis weib, also gets a place.

Why does the old house have to go, which was first mentioned in a document in 1531 – even before the city burned down in 1553 during the war of the states?? An inquiry with the city of kulmbach brings clarity. Mayor henry schramm explains: "at the corner of sutte/webergasse, a large traffic circle is being built with the new access road for the underground car park at the central car park. The traffic circle will have a diameter of 36 meters. In order to create sufficient space for pedestrians around the roadways, the house at webergasse 15 will be demolished and this area will be redesigned as part of the overall planning process. The house is of no concern in terms of historic preservation. The demolition is demanded in the context of the demand offensive northeast bavaria and is expected to last until the end of october. The redesign will take place in the context of the traffic circle construction."

Interior decorator symalla works here

Webergasse 15 was home to the interior decorator eckhard symalla from 1971 to 2003, when he sold the house to the city. His company logo and shop window are still familiar to many people in kulmbach.

At the same time, sales increased by 27 percent to 757 million dollars.

At groupon, customers can buy discount vouchers from service providers, restaurants or retailers. So far, the offers are distributed mainly via e-mail newsletters. But groupon wants to become more of a platform through which local merchants can market their offerings online and on mobile devices. So groupon created websites for several million stores, where they can present themselves in the groupon system. Change takes time and costs money. In north america, targeted searches in groupon’s deal database accounted for ten percent of total usage last quarter.

Groupon paid last 52.7 million active customers, who had struck in the past twelve months at least once with the schnappchen. That was about a quarter more than a year ago. Around half of groupon’s offers are bought on mobile devices.

Ekkehard roepert right next to the dilapidated town hall, the city has now had to open the next rough construction site. But there are not enough funds for the renovation of the so-called "frechshaus". Therefore, the building to the west of the town hall (the oldest parts of which date back to the 15th century) will be rebuilt. Century) have only been patched up in a makeshift way for the time being.

This worried some city councilors in the finance committee on wednesday. Mayor uwe kirschstein (SPD) said that "no general renovation" would be worth it of the streits- und frechshaus was in question; the city had "more important projects".

The architect sigrun wagner (responsible for renovations at the city) explained the extent of the damage: the wooden structure is infected by a fungus that is not dangerous for humans, but for the wood; the framework is so dilapidated that chunks have already fallen out; moisture is penetrating the building at the eaves; the noses of the tiles are breaking off; the pigeons are using the holes in the roof to nest and contaminate the roof truss with droppings.

It’s the complaints that you didn’t expect, in the evening, at the weekend. A medication to relieve the pain would then be preferred immediately, not only after an agonizing night or on the next working day. That’s why there is an emergency pharmacy service. On-call doctors also refer their patients to the appropriate address so that they can take the right medicine quickly. Where the next pharmacy on duty is, you can find out from the newspaper or look on the internet. At every pharmacy there is also a sign with this information.

The emergency service has been organized by the bavarian chamber of pharmacists since 1987. Previously, the district authorities were responsible for it. In munich, three employees are involved in duty scheduling, as we learn from the chamber’s press spokesman, werner kurzlechner. As early as october, the schedule for the whole of the following year is presented. Over the year, the colleagues had to deal with updates, in addition to other tasks. Every change goes through their desks – for example, if a pharmacy is no longer available due to closure or if a change of service is necessary due to illness or other reasons. The service groups were not defined strictly according to county borders. For example, a pharmacy in itzgrund was assigned to the southern district in the district of lichtenfels, while the one in weidhausen was assigned to the northern district. In the alpine region, people sometimes look to austria or baden-wurttemberg. In general, no one should have to accept an additional journey of more than 15 kilometers, as the spokesman explains. But this has become more difficult due to the decreasing number of pharmacies. The fewer pharmacies there are in a region, the more services they have to provide. In the lichtenfels area, a pharmacy is on duty an average of 29 times a year, on every 13 days. Day. According to kurzlechner, this is "a good average. It is changed every day. In the past, the emergency service lasted a whole week. Hartmut pensel still remembers it. He has been a pharmacist in lichtenfels for around 30 years, and night and sunday duty have been part of his job for just as long.

He believes that the number of customers at these times has decreased in recent years. He associates this not least with the fact that doctors in private practice are also paying more attention to no longer being available around the clock. Today, he is rarely called out in the middle of the night, says pensel. The demanding attitude that "the pharmacist has to be there anyway", but there are still some people who ask for change for the cigarette machine or take a few headache pills on the way to work at half past four in the morning. But such cases are the exception.

Regarding the article "marktleugast fears negative effects and speaks out against the east bavarian ring road" (BR from 23. January) is written to us: in the municipal council meeting on 21. January it was confirmed by mr. Laaber on request of the second mayor maisel. There is no subsidy for the pressure line from neuensorg to marktleugast.

Of course, almost everyone knew this, but the people in charge in marktleugast said the opposite. Up to 70 percent of the media reported it. Nothing got the municipality for this mabnahme.

We apply for a grant retroactively. This is of course not possible. However, they tried to calm the burger with it. Unfortunately no response. There was nothing.

Rough holidays

"Of course, it wasn't like it is nowadays," recalls, was heard again and again when people from oberbach were asked about the carnival of earlier times. But clearly: "foasenoicht and kirmes woarn die grobte feiertag", says backersch hermann. In any case, there was a good party – and a good one at that. In oberbach there were two taverns "schulbarwe" (guesthouse stern) and "the ruppels". Both had at that time a hall for the coarse celebrations in the village. There was a lot of activity. "And some people have taken a heavy intoxication home with them", remembers kurt ziegler, born in 1942, from the stern inn.
And so until the "hall" was built, the house of the guest, celebrated in both inns, which were also club halls. That was before the time of the clubhouses. "Until the fire in august 1963 there was a "foasenoicht" every two years in our hall, kurt, now a senior host, remembers. "We also had a children's carnival – on rose monday."
On tuesday, the children were out and about in small groups, recalls his wife heidi, born in 1954. "The children were masked and sang a song in front of the houses. They got sublimes or even money from time to time. They then used the stickers to party", she says.
The favorite costumes of the girls at that time were red cap, hungarian or princess. The boys' favorite costumes were hollander, pirate and even cowboy. Kurt himself, as a child, also moved from house to house with others "that was the custom in those days." Then a little saying was recited or something was sung briefly. For this there were subes as a reward.
On carnival tuesday there was usually a bar going on. As usual in many villages of rhondo, the baren-treiben belonged to the fasenacht. The bar, his driver and some masked figures paraded through the village. "Especially at the schnapps distillers they stopped and then of course in the two "wirtshausern", female kurt ziegler still.

Elephant instead of bar

According to his recollection, the traditional straw elephant became a straw elephant twice – probably on some whim. "The elephant was made by two boys. They were connected with a ladder – as a ruck – and were firmly bound into the frame. And that was once almost ubel ausgegangen." Whether it was due to the schnapps they were given or whether it was simply poor visibility remains to be seen. In any case, the straw animal fell quite unhappily – and the two men hung lashed in the ladder and could free themselves only with difficulty.
"I was also once the straw bar", backersch hermann" remembers, vintage 1934. It must have been half a century ago. He was a young "codger and ready for any kind of fun. "First they put a basket of potatoes over my head and then tied me completely up with straw", he laughs. But it was not quite so cozy under the straw wrapping after all. Because it was heavy and scratchy and "I saw almost nothing anymore", he says "but the bar is still managed."
But even at his time it was no longer the "arwes straw" (pea straw), as it says in the rhon literature. "We took oat straw", he remembers "we then went through the village and rang the bells at the houses. And schnapps – well – it was fasenoicht after all. I drank the schnapps with a tube like this one." And then he remembers: "we made an incredible mess in the houses or in the economy". We didn't realize it before." And then "once, in such a room, there the bar then also burned." How it turned out, he no longer knows exactly – the bar was probably extinguished in time.

Earlier than expected, but most welcome, was the arrival of the fourth armored vehicle at the documentation center "a border garrison in the cold war in mellrichstadt’s former barracks.

The "M 113" personnel carrier has now been installed there another exhibit of this special museum has found its place near the main gate, together with the "schutzenpanzer kurz hotchkiss and the "schutzpanzer lang HS 30".

The "marder" armored personnel carrier originally parked there made room there and was moved right next to the former kommandeursgebaude, the current doku-zentrum.

The new CEO, simon segars, nevertheless expressed confidence on wednesday about the further course of the year. The company has more orders than ever before and expects to at least meet sales expectations in 2013.
