But there are still plenty of games to go," said augsburg’s werner, referring to the situation at the bottom of the table.

Idea to bring more under the people

idea to bring more under the people

The road to the extension application was long and tedious. Although the free state made advance payments for the core zones with its state forest, many municipalities had a difficult time. Unfortunately, the discussions that took place in some cases will continue to reverberate for a long time to come. As "nonsense described, for example, bad bruckenau city council members. The image of the indian reservation, to which many felt transported, will continue to circulate over the dinner tables for a long time to come. It is understandable that some municipalities, which are virtually surrounded by core zones and nature reserves, feel restricted in their development. To many rhonians, their home country appears to be a huge compensation area that is only intended to soothe the bad conscience of the booming metropolises with their ever fatter bacon belts.
Even if the predicate
biosphere reserve is not a panacea and creates jobs in other areas as tourism and healthcare are at least as important, the expansion should above all be seen as an opportunity: rhon is setting a good example with the unesco designation and positioning itself as a pioneering region for sustainable development. Nature conservation is only one component, in the biosphere reserves man is not locked out, but may continue to shape his environment. This positive image, this idea of a region that even transcends national borders and the former iron curtain to hold together, should be more in the foreground again.

Schalke denies agreement with schaaf

Schalke denies agreement with schaaf

Schalke 04 is in a dilemma. The konigsblauen fubballprofis are in the eighth finals of the champions league and have in the bundesliga tuchfuhlung to the international starting places. If that’s still not enough, head coach jens keller is still a coach on call?

The discussions are more intense than ever. Since the konigsklasse draw was a welcome opportunity for distraction. "It’s a great occasion, also for our fans! To be able to compete with the most famous soccer club in the world with players like cristiano ronaldo, iker casillas or gareth bale: we’re really looking forward to it," keller said to the K.O.-encounters with the "royals. For young star julian draxler it will be a highlight: "it has always been my dream to play against real madrid and in the bernabeu one day."But: "it could hardly get much harder for us."

Whether keller will live to see the game as head coach may be doubted. For one rumor is holding firm: thomas schaaf is to take charge. Schalke immediately denied. During the christmas party, club spokesman thomas spiegel announced: "the report is false and does not correspond to the facts."Media reports that the gelsenkirchen team had reached an agreement with schaaf that the former bremen championship coach should replace jens keller at the start of the second half of the season were not acceptable to those responsible.

Fire department pump replacement, debt reduction and a goodbye

fire department pump replacement, debt reduction and a goodbye

The gemunda fire department is currently not operational because its portable fire engine is defective and can no longer be repaired. The problem is to be solved in such a way that the gemundaer fire-brigade receives the syringe, which is in addition to the firmly installed pump on the dietersdorfer fire-brigade vehicle. The dietersdorf fire department will receive a submersible pump for flood operations and a high-performance air blower to blow smoke out of buildings. This is what the city council decided in its meeting on tuesday. The bottom line is that this will cost the city about 5,000 euros less than the purchase of a new portable fire engine for gemunda, said mayor maximilian neeb (). The dietersdorf fire engine was overhauled only two years ago.

Hospital runs satisfactorily

The flender hospital foundation, which operates the old people’s home in seblach, is developing well: for the past three years, the city has not had to contribute anything to the operation; surpluses are also expected in the coming years. Debt reduction is proceeding according to plan; debt level will be just under 1.5 million euros at the end of the year. 2016 it was still over two million euros. The budget for the current year was unanimously approved.

The building applications of daniel and monika popp (extension to a residential building in merlach) and jorg and jessica barmann (terrace roofing in dietersdorf) were also approved.

Colorful life tate ortskernen good

The fruit and horticulture association of weisendorf (OGV) had invited a very renowned speaker in the form of christine bender, agricultural councillor and deputy district administrator of the schweinfurt district. The agricultural advisor from the horticultural center of bavaria north at the office for food, agriculture and forestry in kitzingen gave a lecture on "fresh wind in old walls – welcome to the old village! The past has a future. The passionate lover of historic rose varieties brought a great deal of experience with her, both from her voluntary work and from her job as district manager for horticulture and landscape conservation in lower franconia.

Bender presented the situation of numerous french villages, where more and more farms are being abandoned, some of them empty, leaving many buildings and opportunities free. Rural exodus, land consumption and the demographic development are challenges for the villages and old town centers.

The aim is to preserve the buildings that dominate the local landscape and to adapt them to today's requirements by means of new forms of use. The old villages are to be preserved alongside the new housing developments of the 1960s and 1970s and the new construction areas of recent years. In many places, new life could be breathed into them through local government measures or local conservation programs such as "our village has a future – our village should become more beautiful".

Package tours: cancellation fees disappear forever?

Who knows what will happen in two or three months?? This uncertainty pervades the corona pandemic. And it is one reason why vacation planning is so difficult at the moment. In fact, no one knows when travel will be possible again without restrictions. The tour operators have reacted to this: actually, vacationers have to pay high cancellation fees if they cancel their trip at relatively short notice because they do not want to leave after all. So if there are no travel warnings or other unusual circumstances that allow you to leave the trip for free anyway. But this sacred cow has been slaughtered by some operators.

Cancellation often free of charge

At DER touristik, for example, anyone who has booked by 31 december. December books a vacation with a departure date up to october 2021 and can cancel or rebook it free of charge up to 14 days before departure, with just a few exceptions. The aim is "maximum flexibility and planning security", according to the organizer.

FTI from munich does it this way: for bookings until 31. January is a free cancellation with money back guarantee up to 14 days before departure possible. This is to keep vacationers flexible. At alltours, package tours with fixed prices can be booked between the beginning of april and the end of october 2021 until 15. Marz can be rebooked or canceled free of charge. Winter trips can be canceled anyway up to two weeks before the start of the season without any fees.

Now the zigzagging can continue

Not everyone can move an entire factory in three days. The A creative embroidery already. But that only works if everyone helps out together. From the apprentice to the bosses.

And as with the takeover of the then insolvent fahnenfabrik meinel, the current move from mannsflur to marktleugast was handled by the company itself: trucks were rented, the nine multi-head embroidery machines weighing several tons were dismantled, hauled, driven and reassembled from morning to night. Bales of fabric and embroidery machines hauled around and a whole bunch of boxes with patterns, templates and ornaments moved around.

To ensure that no time was lost, the employees and their families drove small parts themselves in their private cars.
