No arm protection on the a 7

No arm protection on the a 7

There was a great deal of interest in the first of five castle meetings, at which castle mayor karlheinz kickuth presented a comprehensive report in the schutzenheim.
Although there have been talks about the protection of larm on the autobahn, the federal authorities do not see any need for action, according to karlheinz kickuth. The municipality had to finance the construction work itself.
The rejuvenation of the three existing freeway bridges, on the other hand, was currently being tested. The necessity of concrete replacements could not be judged conclusively yet. In this context, kickuth also addressed the issue of noise protection on the B 287 and the kreisstrabe 37 near langendorf, which still requires clarification.

Wall at the multi-generation square

Kickuth said that according to the authorities, the traffic load on the elfershausen section of the freeway had hardly changed. The mayor explained to the astonished listeners that payments had even shown a slight decline. Even with a six-lane expansion of the autobahn and a new bridge construction, larm protection walls or ramparts were not feasible due to legal regulations.
Criticism was voiced about the multigenerational square. The site, which was opened in april 2017, was under water by the end of the year due to persistent rainfall, causing considerable damage. To prevent this in the future, a higher protective wall is needed at the shore zones. Foreign material, which the authorities had not allowed in the initial planning, should prevent flooding of the square in the future. Ingo graser asked who would pay for the overhaul, but was not told, as it was decided in a closed session.
This challenged the criticism of alfons schmitt, who said: "no one takes responsibility". Kickuth disagreed. He referred to the planning prepared by the water management office and the government, which was implemented as follows. However, the storage material was not enough to build higher dams. This is now to be made up with the approval of the authorities.
Also for the renovation of the old school building and its transformation into a "house of associations critical questions were asked to the mayor. Angelika kohlhepp doubts that a house is necessary for the increasing number of clubs in elfershausen. "The renovation costs a lot of money. Can’t the clubs be accommodated elsewhere??", she asked.
Kickuth agreed that the mabnahme is expensive, but that this is mainly due to fire protection. But the building, whose renovation will begin after easter, is "a piece of local history" and belongs to the ensemble church-school-parsonage, the former center of the village, he argued.
In the area of the "rosenhugel the community wants to preserve the gewolbekeller after demolition of a building. In the opinion of herbert edelmann, this is not sensible. "Once the roof is missing, the cellar becomes damp." Kickuth clarified that the cellar was parallel to the property line of a neighbor’s house, which could be damaged when the cellar was demolished. "The barrel vault needs to be secured. For this a statics is necessary", he defended the mabnahme.
In general, angelika kohlhepp denied the purchase of land and houses "for which the municipality had no use". The mayor said that the situation was different in the past. "Nevertheless, we can use the property ourselves or lease it out", he stated.

30 building sites

To the prominent tree removals in the district elferhausen pays the residential and mixed area "trimberger weg". This is where the development work began last year. The new residential area has 30 building sites, in the mixed area six commercial sites are buildable. This is also where the new fire station is being built. The erschliebung should be ready at the end of 2018.

Simply too good to throw away

Simply too good to throw away

Norbert gundelach

for twelve years now, the couple steffi and freddy greubel have been running a trodele store in mainstrabe. "The idea to open my own troll store came to me when i visited the ‘wuhlkiste’ in eltmann. But we don’t see ourselves as a competitor to the ‘wuhlkiste’ stores in the district, and we never wanted to be", tells steffi greubel.
"Nowadays, people throw away so many things that were still usable. We want to help people who don’t have the money to buy something new", explains steffi greubel. When her husband then retired, she put her dream into practice.

Rough storage space

In the property in the mainstrabe the parents of freddy greubel formerly ran a small farm. The barn and stables have now been converted into storage rooms. The 400-square-meter warehouse is full to bursting with products.
What is stored there for sale, can not be fully paid for here. Mainly furniture, household goods, tableware, china, carpets, clothing, tools, lamps, bicycles and much more.
"It all seems messy at first glance, but we still know exactly where to look for and find what", remarks the 55-year-old with a smile. The merchandise comes to a large extent from household lots. "In the event of a death, for example, or when an apartment has to be given up, the descendants and tenants are happy to have someone take care of the apartment. We clean the rooms and in return we get the furnishings as a gift. So far I have always found what I am looking for. But I have not yet found a treasure", says freddy greubel and laughs. "Sometimes people bring me something. They regret throwing away their things that can still be used."

“State failure”? The political wirecard case is just getting started

Accounting fraud, suspected money laundering, an ex-intelligence coordinator and a former minister as lobbyists, and unanswered questions about a trip by the chancellor: the dimensions of the wirecard scandal are growing ever larger – and the political process of coming to terms with it is only just beginning.

An investigative committee is becoming more likely. Many questions remain unanswered – one key question is: was wirecard, as a german fintech company and rising borsen star, handled with kid gloves by regulators despite indications of irregularities?

The damage is already gross. Thousands of investors have been cheated as the share price of the former dax company plunged into the abyss. The federal government is confronted with the accusation that it is only contributing to clarification in bits and pieces.

Venice film festival starts: gosling as space pioneer

venice film festival starts: gosling as space pioneer

For more than 100 years, the grand hotel des bains has been considered one of the best addresses on the lido. Not only did thomas mann make it famous with "death in venice," but during the film festival it was also visited by countless stars.

In 2010, however, it was closed and stood empty after failed reconstruction plans – until now. For the 75. Filmfest the legendary house has now been reopened, at least partially.

On the first floor visitors can see an exhibition on the history of the festival. Photos and film excerpts tell of directors and works that have already been celebrated here. Who of this 75. It is, of course, still unclear how the festival will be remembered. But the opening film on wednesday already raised hopes of a strong competition: "first man".

New accounts for the good of the forchheim region

New accounts for the good of the forchheim region

In the context of the "my account" campaign volksbank forchheim donates 30 euros from its own coffers for every account opened. Depending on the choice of the bank customers, donations are made to associations or charitable organizations in the region. At the halay point of the campaign, gregor scheller, chairman of the board of volksbank forchheim, handed over the first check on tuesday. The prize of 1100 euros went to lebenshilfe forchheim. This was the highest amount of donations that went to one of the participating organizations.

On behalf of lebenshilfe, its chairman rolf-christian platzek expressed his thanks. "There is no specific purpose for the money yet", explained platzek. But one thing is certain for him: the money goes directly to where it is needed. "Support is always needed here", emphasized platzek. His organization's field of activity begins with the early needs of disabled people and extends through their kindergarten and school years to support in retirement.

Heil defends his basic pension concept

Heil defends his basic pension concept

Labor minister hubertus heil (SPD) has rejected criticism from the union of his proposals for a basic pension. "I am thus implementing the goals of the basic pension, which are firmly anchored in the coalition agreement: recognition of life’s work and avoidance of old-age poverty."

Someone who has worked for decades has the right to receive a significantly higher pension than someone who has not worked, heil told the "rheinische post. "That is why there is to be no requirement for a conviction. After all, it’s not about almosen, it’s about life performance."

The labor minister’s plans call for millions of low-income earners to automatically receive higher pensions after a long working life. Small pensions are to be topped up by up to 447 euros a month. The union criticizes above all the fact that the actual need is not to be examined – in contrast to what was agreed in the coalition agreement between the CDU, CSU and SPD.

Before the grand prix at home: where does the formula d(eutschland) stand??

Before the grand prix at home: where does the formula d(eutschland) stand??

Black. Red. Gold. The german colors appear discreetly on sebastian vettel’s racing bike, with which the four-time formula 1 world champion arrived at the drivers’ camp at the hockenheimring on friday. The flag is painted in small honeycombs on the frame of the gefahrts.

A grand prix like this in front of home fans is at least a little bit special for every formula 1 driver. For the ferrari driver, who was born not far from hockenheim in heppenheim, the little bit is a bit rougher. Vettel has yet to win on the traditional course in north baden. Last year, he was very close, but a mistake on a wet track 15 laps from the end cost him an almost tangible success.

Except for the result, the weekend was fantastic, vettel said, pointing out some of the factors that made the weekend so special: "the many fans, the many german flags, the enthusiasm around the track."To drive in the home country, that is simply "always special".
