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.

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.

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.

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.

Now many kids want to try handball for themselves. Thus the TV marktleugast experiences an influx like never before. "The rush of kids can hardly be stopped", trainer peter frankmolle is pleased. "Even more important than the performance of our national team was the live broadcast on public television", he and sandra dietrich, two of the four main coaches in charge of children’s handball at TV marktleugast, believe.

The club from the frankenwald has been a regular guest in the elementary schools of the kulmbach district for a few years now with a taster training session. While only a handful of children could be convinced of this fast and athletic sport in the past, the number has increased significantly in the meantime.

The trainers from marktleugast took advantage of the opportunity and were even active in the elementary school during the world cup "with extraordinary success", says peter frankmolle. More than 30 new boys and girls have found their way to the triple sports hall in marktleugast to play handball. "They are enthusiastic and eager to train and try to imitate the TV heroes. Everything done right", so the conclusion of peter frankmolle, who is among other things active as a child handball adviser of the BHV upper franconia.

At sinnberg, the wait is on for new kindergarten places

Stephanie glaser is looking forward to the move. Still a shell stands at the sinnberg. Bare roof beams are laid over walls of red brick. Instead, the director of the sinnberg kindergarten sees brightly painted walls, colorful pictures and small wooden tables in her mind's eye. Instead of the building tower, she can see 200 children's legs running across the floor. At the beginning of next year, after more than a year, the kindergarten will be able to leave the provisional rooms in salinenstrabe and move into the new building. "We will have more space, glaser is pleased.

The graduate teacher and her team of 13 educators and nurses will then have five learning workshops – thematically separated rooms for playing, learning and handicrafts – at their disposal. They fit in with the open concept of the facility. In addition, there will be cooking and dining areas, common rooms, and sleeping facilities. "What educators can never have enough of is parking space", laughs glaser. The work materials also have to be accommodated.

More space, not enough places
But more space means more space only to a certain extent capacities, says glaser: "we have twelve more places in the daycare center." So far, twelve children under the age of three can be cared for; after the move, there will be 24. The number of kindergarten places remains constant at 75.

Radio punches remain

Training opens up opportunities for advancement

Training opens up opportunities for advancement

The variety of technical professions is rough. At nipro glass in munnerstadt (formerly MG glas), four different apprenticeship occupations are offered. There are still applicants, but in view of the demographic development, training manager frank biegner also expects a shortage of skilled workers and that trainees will become a scarce commodity. For this reason, nipro also likes to use the girls' day to give young people an insight into the technical professions offered by the company.

Technical branch an advantage
"There are still applicants", says frank biegner. It gets a little more difficult when it comes to the closer selection, because some of the interested parties apply for a technical profession, but do not attend a technical branch at secondary school. He thinks this is not easy and gets approval from sandra fiegand, who is a trained production mechanic herself and has completed many further training courses, including a technician's apprenticeship. The technical branch is not a prerequisite, but it makes training easier, she says. Because technical mathematics and physics are basics that are needed again and again, which frank biegner also confirms.

Sandra fiegand (quality management and assurance), frank biegner (deputy head of the maintenance department) and catharina pickel (technical customer service) were happy to organize the girls' day because they see such taster days as a good way of informing young people at an early stage about the career opportunities in the company, but also about the requirements. Three girls had a look around for one day this time. Celine reichert, nina neumayr and lena gundelach were curious about work processes and only lena gundelach already had some experience in technical things.

Don jackson looked calmly into the round. His berlin coach colleague uwe krupp also stayed cool after auben. It couldn’t be more exciting: the final drama of the german ice hockey championship will be a showdown between EHC red bull munchen and the ice barbarians berlin.

On thursday (19.30 o’clock) the all-important seventh match takes place in munich. The taciturn EHC coach jackson didn’t want to know about a home advantage. "That’s something for journalists," was his grumpy reply on tuesday evening.

The munich team, so confident until the fourth duel of the final series and the 3:1 lead, showed nerves of steel. The reigning champion is on the verge of losing the almost certain title hat trick after the second missed match puck. Even the most cautious optimists had not expected such a comeback from the icemen.
