Fear of the discharge wave

Fear of the discharge wave

The metallic jingling of the precision press parts has become quieter at oekatech in bamberg in the corona months. Short-time work impacts the plant. "In august, there is currently a positive trend reversal, we are curious", reports plant manager matthias czech. The mood oscillates between skeptically tense and cautiously optimistic. The slump had been harder than in times of financial crisis, customers had more rigorously canceled orders, emptied stock, and taken less account of the well-being of suppliers. "As a small company with 80 employees, we have to react very spontaneously and make advance payments to customers, czech, who, like his colleagues, hopes that the positive trend will continue and that a second lockdown will not occur.

The bamberg-coburg employment agency also speaks of a noticeable easing of the situation "even though there can be no talk of an all-clear", as manager brigitte glos explains. At the peak in april, almost 60,000 employees in 5,000 companies in the agency region were on short-time work. In july, only around 3,000 employees left in 130 plants. "New hires and layoffs have been back at pre-crisis levels for a few weeks now", explains glos.

Four-day week in the talk

The labor agency didn’t hear the shot, criticizes mario gutmann, chairman of the works council at bosch and active in the union for metal, engineering and electronics (IG metall) nationwide. The metalworkers’ union recently proposed a four-day week to avoid the threat of an avalanche of layoffs. For gutmann, a clear warning signal of how serious the situation really is.

Sammer liked to help carry ara - 'develop ourselves further'

"First, to stabilize at the high level and develop in detail, hopefully to contribute an ara. Second, to build up one of the best academies for young people in the world over the next three to five years," sammer said in an interview with the frankfurter allgemeine sonntagszeitung. "We will continue to develop and hopefully, with josep guardiola, we will have consistency in a crucial position."

Sammer concedes that the spanish star coach needs a certain amount of time to get up to speed. "We want to get away from this hype. We want to deal with work, with details. The time factor should not be an alibi, but nevertheless development needs a certain amount of patience," the sports director emphasized. "We assume that it runs immediately. But we won’t let ourselves get rattled, even if things are a bit bumpy at the beginning. I remind you, with all my gratitude for jupp heynckes, that he didn’t win a title in his first year in charge. Guardiola may also have the time that other coaches have had."

At the banzberg a whole road slipped off

At the banzberg a whole road slipped off

The brown waters of the main pass the weir at hausen with a mighty thunderous roar. Foaming and bubbling, the floods pour over the weirs into the reservoir of the hause power plant, which is only a few meters below. Violent whirlpools form there. Dancing in the eddies are ashes and some small tree trunks that were carried away by the masses of water.

A few hundred meters further downstream, a section of the banzer berg slipped off in the night to saturday. The county road LIF7 between hausen and weingarten is therefore closed until further notice. Rough gates, which are placed over the roadway, also prevent pedestrians from passing through.

Curious walkers
On sunday afternoon, a few curious people nevertheless daringly climbed over the slope, past the grating, into the closed-off area. They do not seem to care that this is highly dangerous.

Bamberg district: continuous rain floods the b22 – fish swims across federal highway

A fish swims across the B22: "we don’t know this in ebrach either", says friedrich riemer, district fire inspector of the bamberg district, after the B22 near ebrach was flooded on tuesday evening.

Persistent rain traps have kept germany on tenterhooks for days now. Everywhere rivers overflow their banks, cellars fill up. In the district of kulmbach, the B289 had to be closed on tuesday afternoon – a mudslide had made it impassable. In lower saxony, even the structure of a hospital gave way: because a clogged rain pipe could no longer cope with the masses of water, the roof of a crib hall collapsed.

Bamberg district: untersteinach hit again

According to riemer, the floods around ebrach also reached unprecedented levels. Around 4 p.M., a heavy rain front caused the handthal basin to fill up – a basin that can only flow in the direction of ebrach. Several cellars in ebrach filled up and the community’s natural swimming pool was completely flooded.

Marktsteft starts with derby

Marktsteft starts with derby

Those responsible for the women’s handball team of TV marktsteft were satisfied with the way the premiere season of the national league, which was canceled in march, had gone. The promoted team was never in acute danger of relegation and finished the season in ninth place in a secure midfield position. "The madels have mastered this super," praises coach viliam vitkovic the performance of his team. This also serves as a blueprint for the new season, which begins for TVM this saturday with the derby against rimpar (6 p.M., multipurpose hall). Because the young team, which once again integrated some A-junior girls into the first team, wanted to move in similar tabular spheres in its second round of the national league. "They say that the second year in a league is always the hardest," says vitkovic, referring to a well-known sportsman’s maxim. This should of course not come true according to marktstefter’s wishes. The coach is counting on the wealth of experience his players gained in the previous season and from which they should now benefit in order to assert themselves again in the "landesliga shark tank".

Corona raises questions

Vitkovic believes that the omens could have been more favorable. "There is already anticipation, but overall the feelings are rather mixed," admits the coach. Corona leave many question marks also in marktsteft. "How does it all work? Can we really pull off the season as planned?"? These were all questions that he asked himself, according to vitkovic. The pandemic situation was always present in the players’ minds during the preparations. Especially since the club itself was affected by a positive covid 19 case in the upper district league men’s team. One player had to go to quarantine due to familiar connections and a training session of the women’s team had to be canceled.

The positive findings for vitkovic’s work had no further consequences. Nevertheless, the training manager says: "it was a completely different preparation than usual."As a team, they have not been able to work much in the handball-specific area and instead have tried to get in shape and improve their individual skills. "We have done our homework," vitkovic is nevertheless satisfied with the performance level of his team under the given circumstances. Meanwhile, there were few changes in the personnel during the break. Lara moser moved to HSG mainfranken and was replaced at the goalkeeper position by sophia roder from SG dettelbach/bibergau. Otherwise, the squad remained together, but must cope with the long-term injury-related absences of anne hering and franziska remler. There was also a change on the marktsteft bench: senior coach luca endres replaced valentina dennerlein, who returned to michelfeld, as vitkovic’s assistant.

Spring revision of the nesting boxes

spring revision of the nesting boxes

It's high time to do an overhaul of the nesting box now, just before the bird courtship", says hellmut petsch, the long-serving nature conservation officer of the lower nature conservation authority at the district office of bad kissingen, as he stands on the ladder in the meadow orchard at kammer to clean one of the 24 nesting boxes installed there and to check it for strength and cat safety. Here he has hung up many years ago, at that time still as rhonklub-natzurschutzwart, the first self-crafted nesting holes and year after year further, often donated to hang up.

He feels responsible for the nesting holes and has been taking care of them since 1981 and now also as an active member of the local group of munnerstadt in the bund naturschutz (BN), so that every year in spring there is enough nesting space for titmice and louses other hollow brooders are present. Days before he had already cleaned and checked 22 nesting boxes in jorgentorpark and 20 along the meadow hiking trail.

In addition to the installation, the care and maintenance throughout the year is of course of importance, he emphasizes to our newspaper and says that the landesbund fur vogelschutz (LBV) recommends that all artificial nesting devices be removed immediately after the birds have fledged to clean young birds, so that the new nest for the second brood cannot be built on the old nest, which is often occupied by bird fledglings and aphids and soiled by bird droppings. Now and then he has to repair old nest boxes or replace them with new ones.

Pastor ebel moves to furth

Pastor ebel moves to furth

The catholic parish of st. Catholic has said three farewells. Michael stadtsteinach: both pastor wolfgang ebel and pastoral assistant sabine menge will continue their pastoral work in other parishes in the future. The clergyman moves to the parish of our lady of furth as a vicar, and his co-worker moves to naila after completing her training. In addition, organist jurgen stapf is also ending his work.
At a festive service in the parish church, officials and representatives of associations and organizations said goodbye. Numerous speakers called for a stronger team spirit and cohesion in the parish. In this way, they referred – without mentioning this by name – to the needs that arose after the resignation of the mesner andreas dremer.
The chairman of the parish council, gunter kotschenreuther, outlined the work of the pastor, who began his work in stadtsteinach four years ago. The speaker attested to the pastor’s high degree of helpfulness: "we could always come to you when we had questions and problems." In addition to the usual tasks of a parish priest, wolfgang ebel was especially committed to youth work. The outgoing pastor from stadtsteinach took valuable initiatives in the difficult area of emergency pastoral care. For him, this was not his profession, but his vocation. In addition, the pastor had also distinguished himself through a very practical, worldly vein. He provided energetic help, for example, when the ceiling had to be removed from the parish hall. And he was there when things didn’t work out one hundred percent for the substitute sacristan. Kotschenreuther’s conclusion: "pastor ebel has left his mark here with us."
In his thanks to the clergyman, he also included organist jurgen stapf, who, like ebel, had worked in the parish for four years. He especially praised the efforts of the copperberg musician to preserve the organ, which was in need of renovation.
A heartfelt "vergelt’s gott" (thank you) kotschenreuther also addressed sabine menge, who had completed her training as a pastoral assistant in stadtsteinach in the past two years. Her efforts on behalf of young people were extraordinary: here she supported children in coping with grief. "To my knowledge, this has never happened here before."
Further words of thanks were spoken by church administrator klaus geier. He did not fail to mention that the pastor had a difficult beginning in stadtsteinach. Amendments to the celebration of the eucharist have not gone down well with every believer. In addition, ebel had to face a very tense financial situation, which forced him to make unpopular decisions. He regretted that the parish priest had been subjected to slander, which had been hard on him.
The pastor’s former colleague, pastoral advisor klaus oberkofler, spoke of a turbulent and difficult time for him. He characterized wolfgang ebel as a true team player, who greatly appreciated voluntary work and never made a show of his position as head of the parish. Oberkofler’s wife silke, on behalf of the band and the children’s choir, thanked the groups for the great freedom they had in their work.
Protestant pastor sigrun wagner emphasized the friendly and respectful cooperation with her catholic colleague, deputy mayor franz schrepfer the good and objective cooperation with the political community.
For the kolping family and the schola – they sang a song – wolfgang bobek took the floor. Words of thanks also from volker schmiechen, mayor of untersteinach, and from katharina bobek, who represented the catholic youth and the altar boys.
A performance of allegorical character livened up the three-hour celebration. The youth staged a soccer game and analyzed the causes of the german world cup team’s failure. There had been a lack of team spirit and cohesion. The match was moderated by jonas gleich. His message – probably also with regard to the parish: whoever argues can only lose.

The frensdorf natural swimming lake needs recreation

But the lake is by no means "tilted", but had only been soiled, second mayor norbert neundorfer (CSU/FBG) emphasized in the town council meeting, in which the topic was put on the table at the request of six councilors.

"Our lake needs a vacation was to be read on the homepage of the association. Which is not surprising, because according to neundorfer, 1000 to 1500 visitors a day were paid on the hot days. Vacation because the many bathers had put urine, sunscreen, insect spray and creams in the lake.
