Goodbye publicity: pirates want to be among themselves

Goodbye publicity: pirates want to be among themselves

If the state executive committee of the pirate party in lower saxony has its way, there will be a similar arrangement at this weekend’s party conference: a mixed area in which picture and sound recordings are possible, and a private zone in which the pirates are among themselves. Observers wonder: this is supposed to be the party that stands for rough transparency and publicity?

Sharp criticism comes from the german journalists’ association. State chairman frank rieger criticizes the "zone" as unacceptable. "The question is: why do the pirates behave differently than the established parties??" Says the journalist. Osnabruck political scientist roland czada also shakes his head. "It certainly wasn’t smart."Especially a party that is committed to transparency would do well to practice it itself.

Meanwhile, the spokeswoman of the lower saxony pirates, angelika schurmann, is trying to limit the damage. A few days after the first public outcry over the "mixed zone," she speaks of an unfortunate choice of words. The journalists in wolfenbuttel were of course able to follow the debates. It is only a question of some party members wanting to have a private area in which they could not be filmed.

Korber does not want to be told what to do

Korber does not want to be told what to do

In public discussions, it is either about the super-rich or about hartz IV recipients. The middle class is being punitively neglected, complains federal parliamentary direct candidate sebastian korber (FDP) from forchheim at a political pint at hofmannskeller.

In the current election campaign, merkel and schulz discussed what had gone wrong, although they themselves had had the opportunity to change it. Securing the pension alone would cost a three-digit billion sum. In the eyes of the free democrats, this is an undue burden for the children and grandchildren.

The FDP, korber points out, stands for self-responsibility and general liberalism. "I don’t want to be told which car to drive, whether I can eat meat or whether I can put a mushroom heater in the garden", says korber. And the FDP stands for clear announcements.

A european with a home in france

A european with a home in france

Godehard schramm’s book about lake como has just been published: "the chancellor and the lake – lago di como – land and people, culture and konrad adenauer". The nurnberg writer will bring this book to bad staffelstein today. We wanted to know in advance what impulses the obermain gives him.

Question: what do you think of when you hear the place name bad staffelstein??
Godehard schramm: first of all, the reunion with my friend erich walter, the famous botanist from bayreuth, after an almost fatal stroke – when he was already smiling again in a wheelchair in the care of the staffelstein health clinic. Next: that in the circle of french towns with the noble title of bad in front of them, the dominance of the lower franconians has dwindled and after bad berneck, bad alexandersbad and bad rodach, staffelstein can now also decorate and identify itself as a bad’ish. To this crowning came recently the "ring of figures" of the sculptor wilhelm uhlig, who has been working in nurnberg for a long time, adds. As I have seen the art of this almost last "figurative I am very pleased, before my reading, to see this "gold right standing" crib to be able to see the sculpture-septet in the spa park.

What do you know about the staffelberg?
I don’t know anything about the staffelberg, but for me it belongs to the magical and actually also holy mountains of france – like its sibling, the walberla.

Firefighters prevented the worst

Firefighters prevented the worst

The fire in a roof structure of a warehouse has led in the night on tuesday to a large alarm of the fire departments in the area sonnefeld, weidhausen, rodental and even in the neighboring district kronach.

For reasons that are not yet entirely clear, the roof of the warehouse caught fire at around 10 p.M. On monday. Glowing embers in the intermediate ceiling of the construction sparked a fire in the roof area, which also affected the roof construction, which is made of glue beams.

Only through the quick intervention of the fire departments from the neighboring villages as well as from rodental, ebersdorf and mitwitz could the fire be quickly contained and a dangerous spread prevented.
Whether previously performed roofing work can be considered for the origin of the fire is still being determined. But experts from the coburg criminal investigation department have begun their investigations.

Spd honors loyal members roland braun and peter lauterbach

A review of party activities in the SPD local association was the focus of the main meeting in the clubhouse of TV schwurbitz. The awards were also presented to long-serving and deserving party members who have remained loyal to their political convictions over the decades.

Honored with merits

Chairman peter fack summed up that the election meetings, many held together with the michelau SPD local association, had been very well received by the people. The local population also used the information booths and site visits to talk to the mandate holders and to pass on their own suggestions to the municipal councillors of the SPD parliamentary group. Two party friends were honored who have remained loyal to the SPD local association in schwurbitz for decades. Chairman fack first addressed roland braun, who could look back on 25 years of party membership and was elected on 1 january 2008. January 1996 had been succeeded to the municipal council. He was a member of the administrative committee for many years before he was elected faction spokesman for his party in 2014 and has since also been a member of the municipal building committee. In addition, roland braun has been involved in many associations and voluntary activities.

The time of the bet trust

The second jubilarian, peter lauterbach, who had originally moved from the weidnitz district of burgkunstadt, was also able to recall his political past, which began 40 years ago in the local SPD association in burgkunstadt. It was marked by environmental destruction and the betting frenzy, which is why many initiatives and movements made an attempt to fight back.

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

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.
