Good location for special vehicles

The state of bavaria has stationed a special firefighting vehicle in marktrodach. With the so-called modular emergency kit for floods (MGH), the team is well equipped for flood operations. Bavaria’s interior minister joachim hermann has purchased a total of 82 of these vehicles, four of which are in upper franconia and one of which is in the district of kronach.

The blessing and handover of the MGH also took place in the course of the annual hall festival with a church service in the fire station. Pastor detlef potzl celebrated the mass with his protestant colleague pastor andreas krauter.

Commander andre wich had pointed out the technical details of the vehicle. No municipal contribution was necessary for the MGH because it was financed exclusively by the state. It is used in supra-regional operations such as severe flooding, which is becoming increasingly likely in the region due to extreme weather conditions.

Gross ozone hole over antarctica

Gross ozone hole over antarctica

One of the largest and deepest ozone holes of the past 15 years is located over the antarctic. It has now reached its maximum extent, according to the atmospheric monitoring service (CAMS).

The ozone hole resembles that of 2018, which was also rough, said the head of the organization, vincent-henri peuch. The EU-funded CAMS service is part of the copernicus european earth observation program.

The situation shows the importance of the montreal protocol on banning ozone-depleting substances, says peuch. In the 1987 agreement, numerous countries committed themselves to phasing out the production of such chemicals, especially chlorofluorocarbons (cfcs). Cfcs were in things like cow barriers, spray cans and fire extinguishers.

Trebgaster sevens are complete again

Trebgaster sevens are complete again

The trebgas jurors had two appointments to attend that day. The first part was obligatory: the annual border walk, during which they, accompanied by interested burghers, regularly walk the municipal borders. Maps on which all landmarks are marked provide guidance. The task is to find, uncover, clean and visibly mark them again with red paint. Of course: all stones are no longer to be found, because one or the other is sometimes "caught" while plowing agricultural land and often no longer used as it should be. However, it is not possible to walk once around trebgast in one day, because the borders to the neighboring communities do not run straight and on easily accessible paths or roads. That’s why the training is divided into four stages each time. They are always on the road for five to six hours on these days. This year the section was "western end of hegnabrunn – eichmuhle – michelsreuth" in line. After the work is done, the mayor, who also took part in the run, invites them to a snack. Then came the cure: gunther teufel was sworn in as a new colleague. This means that "the seven" are complete again in trebgast. Dieter hubner

Municipal council inspects flooded area in drosendorf

The members of the eggolsheim building committee had to go over hill and dale. Engineer thomas huppe led the council members over a steep path into a forest hut near drosendorf. The destination of the small excursion was a private property whose owners had complained to the municipality.

For about 25 years, surface water has been flowing over the communal field path and is led through pipes to the private forest property in question. The previous owners had obviously not been bothered by this for a quarter of a century. The new owner, however, is so angry about this state of affairs that she intends to take legal action if the municipality does not stop the inflow. Several trees have suffered from the water, she claims.

Why is there a pipe at all?? "There is a gas pipeline there. For this reason the path and the pipe were created at that time", explained engineer huppe to the building committee members.
Since the matter has been known to the municipal administration for a little more than a year, possible solutions have already been sought. Several on-site meetings have already taken place with the district office, the water management office and the district forester.

The eifinger host herbert steinlein is a seventy

The eifinger host herbert steinlein is a seventy

With herbert steinlein, a distinguished gastronome celebrated his 70th birthday. Birthday. His great-grandfather johann steinlein founded the neufang inn around 1860, and today his son steffen is carrying on the business in the fifth generation. Just as the business passed from father to son, many of the guests are already in the second and third generation, and the cozy restaurant is often full.
Mayor hermann anselstetter emphasized in his humorous laudation that not only an innkeeper but also a distiller full of passion, a biologist, a chemist, a mathematician and a distiller of the top class had grown out of the educational system of the eifinger village school.

Frankish kuche

Together with his wife marianne, herbert steinlein focuses on typical french cuisine. In the dorirtshaus there were no french fries on the plate. The jubilarian is always burning with new ideas, says anselstetter. He has built a tennis court, created a beautiful beer garden and further developed the distillery. He celebrated the schnapps rehearsals in a mixture of lecture and event. "You root your expert reckonings with anecdotes and bon mots. You are indeed a great ambassador of our climatic health resort wirsberg."

A passionate distiller

Originally, herbert steinlein had learned the butcher’s trade as a young lad, but over the years he devoted himself more and more to the family’s fruit distillery and in doing so sparked off a real passion. The distilling right has been documented on the property since 1794: 300 liters of vinous spirit may be produced per year, which results in a good 700 liters of schnapps, which are, however, rarely exhausted. Only home-grown fruit is used in the firepot. While his ancestors only distilled corn and plums, the jubilarian also harvests apples, pears, mirabelle plums, quince and wild cherries from his meadow orchard. The fruit must remain on the tree as long as possible to form fructose, and it must be picked carefully. No stalk, no leaf, no rotten spot may contaminate the mash.
Nothing is added, no yeast, no sugar, no sulfur, no natural flavorings.
Among the guests was district administrator klaus peter sollner, who congratulated herbert steinlein warmly: "for me you are always an extremely positive person and with your attitude of maintaining a typical french economy, you are a flagship of the enjoyment region upper franconia. French hospitality is lived in the family." Rei.

Wollbach’s playful class prevails

SV rot-weib obererthal – TSV wollbach 1:4 (1:1). Goals: 0:1 leo rottenberger (11.), 1:1 michael strasheim (36.), 1:2 simon markart (55.), 1:3 matthias albert (59., penalty), 1:4 tim ehrenberg (87.).

In the first half, the obererthaler still kept up well, according to informant lorenz brust. After the change of sides, the favorite from wollbach prevailed. Although the red women could only muster a thin squad due to injuries, vacationers and other hindrances, the team stood compact in half one – and loved against the much better and more broadly positioned tsvler little to. Only once the wollbacher came through. A long ball reached tim ehrenberger on the right side; he missed and passed into the middle to leo rottenberger: 0:1. The obererthaler itched little; especially michael strasheim voted in the middle – and rewarded himself. On a counterattack, johannes ruth served the offensive player from auben. Strasheim ran straight at the goal and tunneled the keeper: equalizer. In half two, however, the greater wollbacher class and fitness prevailed. It all started at the 1:2 mark, when a wollbacher played a perfect pass to auben. Equally exemplary the cross to simon markart, who put his header into the net. The will of the obererthal team was broken, especially when an SV defender clumsily crossed wollbach’s johannes kirchner, who was running towards auben, in the penalty area. The justified penalty was converted by matthias albert. In the final 1:4, the red-white defense had no chance of catching ehrenberg on the counterattack, and he expertly slotted the ball into the far corner from 18 yards out.St

TSV oberthulba – vfr sulzthal 1:3 (1:0). Goals: 1:0 marius schubert (42.), 1:1 jonas schmitt (50.), 1:2, 1:3 alexander unsleber (65., 75.).

Kramp-karrenbauer deplores ruinous competition for cdu chairmanship

Outgoing CDU chairwoman annegret kramp-karrenbauer has accused the contenders to succeed her of damaging the party with a destructive competition.

"The party has spurred on in this discussion that this fair race has turned into a ruinous competition. And this ruinous competition falls first and foremost on the candidates themselves, but also on the CDU," she told the newspaper "augsburger allgemeine. "That’s why I have always warned against it."

Contenders are north rhine-westphalia’s minister president armin laschet, economic politician friedrich merz and auben politician norbert rottgen. In the struggle for the postponement of the upcoming party conference, merz in particular had fought an open dispute with laschet, in some cases with personal attacks. Kramp-karrenbauer again called on all three to serve the party even in the event of a defeat. "This is the clear expectation of the members. We are already in an election year in january," she said.
