Plans for new airfield near coburg are finally off the table

The announcement comes as no surprise, but opponents of a new airfield near meeder in particular had been eagerly awaiting it to be finally certain: the northern bavaria air office has issued its decision and suspended the planning approval process for the new construction of the coburg commercial airfield.

"Now we can finally rejoice with all our hearts, the new building is off the table", on wednesday, richard mergner, regional chairman of the nature conservation alliance, commented on the announcement. Further explained mergner: now finally can be cheered from the bottom of the heart. The end of the new building was already in sight for a long time, but we have already celebrated – not least in this dispute – and then had to realize that with dodges and tricks the old planning was resurrected. But with the suspension of proceedings we now have it officially and now it is also irreversible. The new building is off the table, a hundred hectares of agricultural land have been saved, the citizens of wiesenfeld and neida will continue to be safe from air raids, the callenberg forest will not be cleared, the hugelkette will not be leveled, red kite, black stork and cassowary will retain their breeding and feeding areas

Also dagmar escher, spokeswoman of the alliance "citizens for their region – against the new airfield" was relieved on wednesday: "we are very happy about this last act." For 15 years, people in eight citizens’ initiatives had fought for this goal. Escher also announces a "great festival of joy" to. Presumably, however, this will only happen in the "warm season" will take place.

“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.

Field hockey men defeat india thanks to matania

Field hockey men defeat india thanks to matania

With a lot of patience, he fulfilled every autograph request after his double strike against the inders. More than 100 field hockey fans crowded around the barrier behind the mixed zone. With his two goals (56./58. Minute) against the previously undefeated inder, the 22-year-old was the matchwinner. Within two minutes he had turned a 1:2 deficit into a 3:2 lead. "Scoring two goals is always nice, but when they’re so important, it’s extra special," the mulheim native said in good spirits. Oliver korn had scored the interim 1-1 for the DHB selection.

Matania was almost allowed to cheer over goals at the olympics – if the native of oberhausen hadn’t been one of the last to be selected from the olympic squad for london. So he had to watch idly as his teammates became gold heroes. "When you’ve been knocked out so close before, you’ve always wanted to play in the olympics," said the business administration student about his long-term goal.

In melbourne, the 22-time national player is now the top goal scorer on the team with his three goals. National coach markus weise, however, sees him far from the end of his development. "He has great potential, but his physical condition is not good enough at the moment," said weise.

Construction gap with old oak tree

Construction gap with old oak tree

Bernhard panzer basically all members of the building committee were in agreement and agreed to a preliminary building application. On a land at the end of the schmiedstrabe a small private building area may develop. According to the application for a preliminary decision there is the "new construction of one and two-family houses on four possible rear partial areas" planned. It is conceivable that one house will be built first, and the others will follow later.

This "gap" in one part of the village was not only buried by mayor german hacker (SPD). The haundorf city councilor christian polster (CSU) also saw it this way: "A redensification in the district is sensible." Even though it is actually an auben area. But even further outside, houses have been standing for many years. According to polster, the decision on the permissibility of the project had already been made at that time. "Because that’s how a construction hump came to be. And we are now in compliance with them".

"Trees that dominate the landscape

However, the CSU city councilor also raised a question about the value of the trees that stand there. In the land use plan, which is after all already about 20 years old, there are five large trees that are described as characteristic of the locality." Polster looked around the site and found only one giant tree, along with several smaller ones. In the city’s statement on the application for a preliminary decision, it is stated, among other things, that the city’s tree protection ordinance is to be observed.

Fc eintracht has all men on board

"We have a home game, and at home we are a power. We want to show that to the bambergers as well", this is the clear message from anton bobenstetter, coach of TSV buchbach, where FC fubball-regionalligist FC eintracht bamberg 2010 will play this saturday (14 o'clock).
The hosts' record so far is impressive only on home soil. At the moment they are in fourth place and have won twelve and drawn four of their 23 games. 23 of their 40 payers they got at home and had to leave the court only twice as losers. For TSV buchbach, the game against bamberg marks the start of the rest of the second half of the season. Bobenstetter is correspondingly motivated: "we are ready and eager to get started!"

Still one bill open
But the team of trainer petr skarabela will be similarly spurred on. On the one hand, because they last played against the 1. FC nurnberg II at least in the second half showed a good performance and so also with the 1:1 deserved to keep a point in the cathedral city, on the other hand, because the bamberger still have a score to settle with today's opponent. 0:4 was the result in august 2012 at fuchs-park-stadium. Buchbach's top attacker stefan lex scored two of his total of 16 goals in the process.
But with the encounter against nurnberg, the violets are one step ahead of the home side: "our advantage is that we already played against the club last weekend and know where we stand", according to skarabela. Bobenstetter has a similar view: "of course, this is a huge disadvantage for us. The first game is never easy, you don't know exactly where you stand. But: we are well prepared and in good spirits."
Skarabela is warned and female: "we go to a strong opponent, where we have to bring a top performance. We have always looked good against strong teams, and we want to prove that again on saturday. The table has become really tight, and we don't want to lose touch with the non-relegation places." In terms of personnel, the FC coach can make full use of his resources in this game, all suspensions have been "served, there are no (more) casualties to mourn.

The call to the priesthood
FC eintracht bamberg 2010: all, bach – bechmann, kettler, kuhnlein, mekic, waltrapp, wenninger, kaiser, J. Pickel, fischer, gressel, herl, F. Pickel, wagner, wieczorek, abou khalil, deptalla, gortler

kerber's next coup: in the cincinnati final

With a 6:1, 2:6, 6:4 semifinal victory over petra kvitova from the czech republic, the 24-year-old from kiel entered the final of the high-ranking hard-court tournament.

There, germany’s number one will meet li na from china on sunday evening. Last year’s french open winner won against venus williams, who was handicapped by back problems, 7:5, 3:6, 6:1. "I want to enjoy the final. I’ve had a great week here, I’m looking forward to it and I’m definitely ready," kerber stressed in an interview with the dpa news agency. A week before the start of the US open, the seventh-ranked player in the world underlined her status as one of the best by reaching the final.

The self-confidence before her fourth final of the year – there were victories in paris and copenhagen – is understandable. Against kvitova, kerber already celebrated 53. Season’s win – no other player has won as many times in 2012. When it comes to the third set, the left-hander is almost unbeatable – her record is 19:1. "She’s a strong opponent, with no real weak ones. She doesn’t give her opponent much," said mary joe fernandez as an expert for the TV channel ESPN. The former world-class player had called kerber a "giant killer" after her quarterfinal victory over olympic champion serena williams, who had previously been unbeaten in 19 matches.

A run on the hochstadter 'female stuff

The clothes closets of hochstadts damenwelt are obviously jam-packed. How else can it be explained that the response to the first flea market was exclusively for “women”s stuff”? So unexpectedly rough turned out.

On friday, 23. February, from 5pm to 11pm this clothing flea market for women will take place at the fortuna kulturfabrik. "The response was overwhelming", says sabine brinkel from the city"s "arbeitskreis kultur" (working group for culture) (akku), where the idea for this clothing flea market was born.

A small team from akku organizes the event. Besides brinkel, babsi cremer, traudl schmerler, birgit neudorfer, bernd riehlein and elfriede schmerler are also participating. They now have 41 sales tables at their disposal. They are in the grob hall, the gallery and the youth center.

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".
