Commentary: a question of perspective

Commentary: a question of perspective

There are two ways of looking at the relocation of the cycle track. One is the urban development perspective: it makes sense to think now about the parking spaces of tomorrow. There is no drama in the fact that the cycle path and the road run parallel for a short distance. Many bike paths border directly on dense road traffic. Even for children it’s no problem, because they learn the rules of the road at school.

The second view, however, is a different one: a brand-new cycle path is being planned that will lead through beautiful landscapes and is intended to be a showpiece of tourism marketing – and it certainly has the potential to be so. The fact that the path at the height of the old train station leaves the original course on the railroad line is not only bearable, but even sensible. The relocation to the bypass road was simply nonsense. The value of the new cycle path for the region has been lost from view. It is understandable that some citizens can only shake their heads at this. And it speaks for the cohesion of the rhonallianz that the other mayors along the route were not openly surprised about the solo effort of bad bruckenau.

The mayor did not answer the question about the legality of the decision. The planning changes for the construction of the bike path had been "mentioned several times" in the city council, she said. For the relocation of the route at the bus station the. She had to prove whether the city council had also been involved in the decision on the rock cellar.

Where the youth has something to say

Where the youth has something to say

The new chairmen of the youth parliament (jupa), axel just and anna barth, paid their inaugural visit to the mayor of upper franconia, florian janik (SPD). Rough introductions were not necessary, however, because just and barth entered their third term of office in november – both were elected to the jupa for the first time in 2014. The mayor congratulated the new chairmen on their re-election and on their election to the leadership of the body. It also wanted to know what the jupa might be dealing with.

"There are many topics. That’s why it’s good that we have – I believe – an ambitious jupa. Everyone is doing well. One of the topics is the bus prices of the VGN", second chairwoman barth reported. Janik was happy to take up the challenge "because this is an exciting and interesting, but also a complex topic. Because when it comes to pricing, there are various mechanisms and reasons at work. But i think it’s good that the jupa is dealing with these issues."

Just addressed the city partnerships. "We want to do something in this area, also with the new partner city bozen. Contacts with jena andwladimir already exist. So we are planning a joint action with the youth parliament of jena on the day of german unification in the fall. In addition, we intend to conclude an agreement with the youth parliament of vladimir regarding cooperation." The mayor of oberburg drew attention to the fact that the traditional celebration with jena on the day of german unification will take place this year in erlangen "and this year it is 30. Anniversary of the fall of the wall".

No fear of the second

No fear of the second

In its penultimate home game of the season in the fubball-bayernliga nord, FC sand has a difficult task ahead of it this saturday. SV seligenporten, one of the favorites for the championship, will be the guests at the seestadion. After their relegation from the regional league, they have set their sights on immediate promotion. But even against this top opponent, the sanders, who have also been very successful recently, will try not to go away empty-handed. Match starts at 15 o’clock.
"Big points made the FC sand a week ago with the 2:1 auswartssieg at SV haibach. How the team fought and "plodded" after a 1:0 deficit and with only ten men (florian pickel had received a yellow card after about an hour) has to offer, which not only earned the respect of the trainer duo bernd eigner and matthias bayer. "There was a jolt through the team, and it showed that our team has character. Everyone ran even more and stood in for their teammates when necessary. Thanks to an outstanding performance, our boys managed to turn the game around and take home the three points. This for us very important victory we celebrated afterwards also fundamentally", said eigner.
With now 36 points, the FC sand has created a good position for the direct class preservation. Especially since the specter of a six-point deduction from the games won against FC eintracht bamberg is off the table (see separate article below). Owner says nevertheless: "we will not get involved in anything. We will also be on the gas against SV seligenporten. Especially because we can only be aubenseiter in this game, this spurs us on especially. We will definitely try not to go away empty-handed."
In their current condition, the sander team need not be in awe of any opponent. Of the nine games this year lost the schlereths, pickels wieczorek and co. Only one unhappy with 0:1 against eltersdorf. Funfmal went the "schwarz-weiben" as winners from the pitch, three times with a draw. "This upswing shows that our team has developed enormously. We also want to prove against SV seligenporten that we are now difficult to play against any opponent", eigner explains.

Promotion is the goal

Second-placed SV seligenporten will also be motivated to play at the lakeside stadium. The "klosterer aiming for immediate promotion to the regional league, but still two points behind leaders vfb eichstatt. The team from the upper palatinate is an enormously strong squad, which the sander trainer describes as follows: "seligenporten probably has the best offensive lineup in the league."
There are no changes in the FC sand team compared to the last game. Only dominik rippstein (knee problems) and pascal stahl (torn muscle fibers) are injured. Dominik schmitt resumed running practice after bruising his toe. The rest of the squad is available to coach bernd eigner. With 18 points from the last nine games, FC sand’s chance of staying in the league has increased. But this also means that he will certainly not be underestimated by the second-placed team in the table.
FC sand: biemer, mai – azizou, gundelsheimer, gonnert, karmann, kruger, leim, F. Pickle, J. Pickel, ribeiro, rinbergas,
D. Schlereth, th. Schlereth,
A. Schmitt, D. Schmitt (?), carver, tropper, wieczorek, wirth

Residents demand: “be diligent, drive three times as fast as possible!”

Residents demand: 'be diligent, drive three times as fast as possible!'

A dozen or so neighbors gathered on tuesday morning in the okosiedlung at cherbonhof. They are united by the desire for more safety in nearby caspersmeyerstrasse, where the speed limit is actually 30 km/h. "I have been overtaken here while driving exactly the speed limit", inge buhl complains. And friederike neundorfer describes dicey situations when her children want to cross the street: "when someone arrives at 60, they can no longer make it across the street and have to stop in the middle." Hiltrud huhn and her 80-year-old husband feel the same way.

Residents paint posters

They all want to take part in an action day in caspersmeyerstrabe, which is to take place on the initiative of ralf neundorfer on saturday from 10 a.M. Onwards. "We will stand at the edge of the road with posters that read, for example: "be diligent, drive three times as fast as possible."

This is intended to sensitize motorists. And those who still step on the gas will be asked to pay more often. Accordingly, residents are calling for more speed checks. "We have an enforcement deficit here", says christian irmisch. The chairman of the "bewahrt die bergstadt" association wants to carry out speed measurements on the action day itself. Among other things, he points to the nearby kindergarten and the many senior citizens who live here. And he could well imagine a traffic-calmed area in caspersmeyerstrabe.

Ten years of solar power from the school roof: ebermannstadters get their deposits back

Ten years of solar power from the school roof: ebermannstadters get their deposits back

In december 2008, the photovoltaic system on the roof of the primary and secondary school went into operation. More than half of the investment costs were financed by contributions from the public purse, and now the repayment is being made.

With the construction of the solar plant on the roof of the school, the municipal utility of ebermannstadt had offered the citizens an opportunity to invest their money in an environmentally friendly local power supply. The offer attracted considerable interest at the time, so that more than half of the investment costs, amounting to 170 euros, were covered.000 euros was financed via burger deposits. Now the contracts are expiring and the deposits are being repaid. Due to the good condition of the photovoltaic system, it will continue to be operated for the time being, according to the municipal utilities.

The photovoltaic system on the roof of the school was the first installation of the municipal utility to generate renewable electricity with the help of the sun. Since its commissioning in december 2008, it has supplied a total of 350.000 kwh of environmentally friendly electricity, thus reducing CO2 emissions by around 300 metric tons. The plant has been running smoothly for the last ten years and has also served as a showpiece for the installation companies. The elementary and secondary school that provided the roof was given a share of the profits in return and was thus able to teach its students about climate protection and technology in a vivid way.

Us unemployment rate rises unexpectedly

uS unemployment rate rises unexpectedly

Economists had expected the rate to remain at 7.5 percent – the lowest level since the end of 2008. However, since the u.S. Economy created more new jobs than expected in may, the numbers are considered mabig meaningful. Experts hope for a clearer trend direction in the coming months.

The number of employees outside agriculture increased by 175,000 positions compared to the previous month, according to further data from the ministry of labor. Economists had expected an increase of 163,000 jobs. However, the increase in the two previous months of march and april was corrected downward by a total of 12,000 points. The rate also rose because more people had registered as looking for work again.

Job growth of less than 200,000 per month is considered too weak for a significant reduction in the unemployment rate. As a result, the U.S. Federal reserve was not allowed to change its low interest rate policy for the time being. "This provides no basis for a premature curbing of the fed’s monthly securities purchases," said chief economist thomas gitzel of VP bank.

Rough differences of opinion in the grub am forst municipal council

Rough differences of opinion in the grub am forst municipal council

The resolution on the fire department requirements plan on the agenda did not come about at the youngest municipal council meeting in grub am forst. The requirements plan was merely acknowledged – and unanimously, despite all the differences of opinion that preceded it in the discussion.

The CSU was the loser in the debate. Their councillors helfried schreiner and gregor matthe stated at the outset that they would not approve the plan and argued that it was amateurish, lacked motivation, was flawed and flawed. The four-digit costs are in no way justified. In addition, the planned closures of the zeickhorn and rohrbach fire departments are completely unacceptable. The speakers from the CSU also shared the opinion of district fire chief manfred lorenz, who had hoped for more from the plan. These statements drove mayor jurgen wittmann (gfg) the anger red in the head: "I do not understand that, because everything was already discussed with the affected, also in the fractions, and found good", said wittmann and asked the question: "how is it supposed to continue??"

There was no answer to this. Wittmann said that it was a different story whether the financial expenditures from the fire department requirements plan were actually met.

Fast internet also for resettlement centers?

The resettlement farms and the area of fernwasserversorgung franken (F) in sulzfeld are poorly supplied with high-speed internet so far. If the municipality now invests 80,000 euros in fiber-optic cables for the expansion of broadband access, a demand rate of 80 percent would be possible, informed mayor gerhard schenkel at the council meeting on thursday. 16 000 euro had to be financed with the deduction of the grant, and the F had already agreed to contribute to the costs.

It is now necessary to ask the owners of the resettled farms whether they are interested in faster internet and whether they will also contribute financially. At the council table, the willingness was signaled to contribute as a community an amount of 6000 euros – under the condition that the resettlers also participate.

Fiber optics could be laid during tree removals

The council also discussed the fundamental question of whether new fiber-optic cables should be installed during tree removals. The municipality has commissioned the engineering office forst as project manager for the contract amount of 29 184 euros to explore these possibilities. If the municipality decided to do this, it would have to pre-finance the tree removals and only through the future use of the network would the municipality get its expenses back through ongoing payment from users.

Koln hostage-taker might have been deported

Koln hostage-taker might have been deported

The hostage-taker from colonn central station might have been deported at an early stage of his stay in germany.

The federal office for migration and refugees (bamf) confirmed that a takeover request could have been sent to the czech republic within three months, as the man had entered germany via this country. According to the dublin agreement, an asylum application must be filed and processed in the eu country that the refugee reaches first.

However, the takeover request failed to materialize in this case. "The reasons why the deadline for submitting a takeover request could not be met in this individual case can no longer be understood after more than three and a half years," a bamf spokesman announced. The "kolner stadt-anzeiger" had reported about the missed possibility of a deportation.

Geroda: rough visions for geroda

Geroda: rough visions for geroda

It hurts mayor alexander schneider (UWG) that the long-planned jubilee could not take place this summer. He announced at the time that it was going to be a big hit. For the gregarious 32-year-old, the past six months have been a difficult time. The regular droohteseldour, the fire department festival or the village jubilee, all had to be cancelled. "Time just goes by, it’s strange", says schneider thoughtfully.

Now the late summer is coming to an end. The district of geroda lies all the more idyllically in the valley, only a few meters away from the black mountains – an eldorado for athletes and nature lovers alike. This picture of his hometown makes the mayor euphoric. "I am a positive thinker and I want to make a difference in the community", he says.

Meeting for demand program

Since the beginning of september, meetings have again been held on the broad topic of village development. Schneider is particularly pleased about this. "Here, together with interested citizens, we are planning where the village should develop over the next 30 years, he explains the program, which is required through the office for rural development. About a year this preparatory phase lasts.
