Once again a heiber fight in the brose arena

Once again a heiber fight in the brose arena

The brose basketball team continues its upward trend? After winning four games in a row across all competitions, the bamberger expect the telekom baskets from bonn on sunday (6 p.M.), with whom they have had many exciting battles over the past decades. And that will probably be the case in the 74. Comparison (47 wins bamberg – 26 bonn) of the two teams so be.

Bonn team a wonder

The bonn supporters have also experienced a rollercoaster of emotions this season: after the lifeless performance against oldenburg and the 78-98 home defeat, top thrower ra’shad james and his team-mates were sent off by the fans with a shrill chorus of whistles. Three days later, it was a completely different story in the champions league: despite the 92-99 defeat after a loss to iberostar tenerife, the top team in group B, the critical bonner audience gave their team a lot of applause for their fighting spirit and a courageous performance.

"After this game we don’t have to reproach ourselves, it could have gone differently in the end. Whether it was a turning point can only be seen later. It was certainly a positive sign," emphasized sports, sports manager michael wichterich told the bonner generalanzeiger newspaper.

“Must improve”: bayer squad remains a construction site

The man everyone was talking about after bayer leverkusen’s poor start to the bundesliga did not have a good sunday evening.

He didn’t even score a goal and was substituted at half time. Alone: kai havertz was not even present for the "werkself’s" 0-0 draw with vfl wolfsburg. The german national player experienced his deflation some 900 kilometers away during the 0:2 defeat of his new club FC chelsea in the top game of the english premier league against champions liverpool.

Bayer leverkusen without kai havertz and also without kevin volland (to AS monaco): most people expected that this could become a sporting problem. At the 0:0 in wolfsburg this became visible for the first time. "We have to improve going forward," said coach peter bosz afterwards. The team, which is often envied for its play culture and attacking tempo, lacked any offensive momentum on this first day of bundesliga play.

With the frisbee through the country

With the frisbee through the country

"People are already scuffling their feet and want to get out and move around in nature again", says thomas mehl and is pleased that his disc golf course in gobweinstein can now be used.

Actually, it should have been in the middle of may, the first "line go open" give. Here every interested person could take part. Moreover, the "german tour" was planned, an event for frisbee professionals. "The competitions had to be postponed because of corona", tells mehl and explains briefly what disc golf actually is.

This sport was developed in the 70s in america. The aim is to throw a frisbee with as few throws as possible in the direction of a metal catching basket on a course with 18 lanes. Like golf, the disc doesn’t land in the basket straight away. That’s why you mark the spot where the frisbee is left and throw from there until it lands in the basket.

Protests against koran burning in afghanistan

Muslims consider the burning of the koran and any other desecration of the koran to be a sin of death. International security force isaf acknowledged that soldiers at bagram had "inappropriately disposed" of muslim scriptures such as the koran. Isaf commander john allen apologized and stressed that the soldiers had not acted premeditatively.

U.S. Defense secretary leon panetta spoke of a "most regrettable incident" that he strongly condemned. "These actions do not reflect the views of the u.S. Military. We honor and respect the religious practices of the afghan people without exception." Panetta promised a determined investigation together with the afghan government.

Neureuther: “family circle” is closing down

Neureuther: 'family circle' is closing down

"It’s good not to be teased at home by your father," he said with a smile on a "momentous day". "But in the end it doesn’t matter at all. Unfortunately, dad was not able to win a medal at a major event. I have now achieved this, from which I think it has closed the family circle very well."

The parents who watched the slalom silver medal on their TV sets at home were pleased to see this bavarian television broadcast on sunday evening. Felix neureuther responds respectfully to questions about family ties. The parents, rosi mittermaier and christian neureuther, themselves do not like to say anything about the 28-year-old, who competed for the first time in a world championship ten years ago as the son of the two skiing greats. After initially difficult years, however, he increasingly shed this image. And when, after one of his four world cup victories so far, a child pointed at rosi mittermaier and said, "that’s felix’s mother," the 1976 double olympic champion was delighted.

"It wasn’t always easy for our children to be constantly referred to us. That’s why we held back in all the races, because otherwise the loudspeaker announcement would have come that rosi mittermaier was standing at the finish line. It’s not funny for such a boy," his mother once said. "When you hear that I’m felix’s mother and not that he’s rosi’s son, that’s the best thing."The name neureuther opened a lot of doors for felix, but at times it was also a heavy burden for him. He was constantly asked about the past. Once it was annoying, then he accepted it, now he speaks proudly about it.

Lack of youth ruled out

Lack of youth ruled out

In the district of bad kissingen, 68 music clubs belong to the north bavarian music association. The average age is 26.3 years, a pleasingly low figure, explained werner hohn. He is the district chairman and vice president of the north bavarian music association. The age group of the over 50s, on the other hand, was less well represented.

"It is good that we have so many musicians in our ranks, especially with a view to the future, hohn is convinced. District youth director johannes geiling also made it clear at the meeting of the north bavarian music association that the bad kissingen district youth wind orchestra (KJBO) is the mainstay of the district youth organization. 51 participants between the ages of 14 and 28 from 26 clubs learned about concert wind music here. The KJBO is also an "educational orchestra" for the clubs. In 2013, the 20-year anniversary of the KJBO will be celebrated in addition to the 20-year anniversary of the northern bavarian brass band youth.

Geiling adds that they try to appeal to the youth by offering recreational activities and by integrating them into the community. "You have to get young people interested in music as early as possible. Good youth work is the be-all and end-all in the association." He is satisfied with the situation for young musicians. But we must not rest on our laurels, we must continue to work. This is the only way to ensure the future supply of young musicians. At the moment, we are in a very good position in this area.

Marktbreit tops the league in trade taxes

Marktbreit tops the league in trade taxes

For the second time in a row, the topic "energy" was the focus of the new year’s reception of the district association of free voters in iphofen. However, district administrator tamara bischof had quite different news in her bag on wednesday evening: for the first time in many years, it was not iphofen that topped the list of municipalities with the highest business tax revenues. With just under new million euros, marktbreit has taken the lead, albeit only by a few thousand euros.

All in all, the district generated tissue tax revenue of around 42 million euros last year, an increase of around two million euros, according to the district administrator. The city of kitzingen is at around 7.8 million euros. Together with the other statistical data of the year, such as the low unemployment rate, she was able to draw a thoroughly positive conclusion for the district: "we are doing well," she said.

Nevertheless, it is important to ensure that the gap between rich and poor does not widen even further. One way of counteracting this is the introduction of minimum wages, which bischof clearly advocated.

38 Years in charge: a “fossil” leaves

38 years in charge: a 'fossil' leaves

A lively town needs lively clubs. Herzogenaurach, with a population of just under 25,000, can certainly demonstrate this: around 160 clubs are registered in the largest town in the district. The heimatverein, which itself has about 750 members and is one of the largest heimatvereins in the whole of northern bavaria, is also contributing to this trend.

This is also thanks to a man who has been steering the fortunes of the 116-year-old association for almost four decades: klaus-peter gabelein. Tonight, the now 76-year-old wants to do what he has been jokingly "threatening" to do for years. At the new election for the annual general meeting in the brewery heller he wants to hand over the chairmanship to younger hands.

The succession is settled, he told the FT. Everything else will be revealed after the elections. The long-serving head of the local association is particularly pleased that oldburgermeister hans has taken over the leadership of the election.
