Successes of handball players make serbs dream

Successes of handball players make serbs dream

Even state president boris tadic now cheers on the serbian team at every game in the hall. "The fans want gold and they will get it", headlines the belgrade newspaper "press". "We will also perform a miracle in the semifinals," promises keel legionnaire and captain momir ilic in the newspaper "blic," and goalkeeper darko stanic adds: "in the arena, we are unbeatable!

The european handball championship is the talk of the town. People are cheering like seldom before. In any case, the sporting successes come just in time against the backdrop of economic and social misery. Because for years there have been practically only negative headlines. Corruption at every turn, record unemployment, rapid inflation, devaluation of the dinar, excessive public debt, ailing pension system, ruined companies.

To make matters worse, head of state tadic has told his citizens that they cannot hope for improvement in the foreseeable future. Those who can, therefore, go abroad. In surveys of students, two-thirds and more regularly state that they want to emigrate after graduation: germany, austria, scandinavia and the usa are the preferred destinations. And this for more than 25 years. Young, well-educated people are turning their backs on their homeland – at first only temporarily, but in the end usually for good.

Snaps for good traders

The flea market of the generations on the castle square, which has been organized by the seniors’ advisory council of the city of coburg for several years now, was also a great success last sunday. As administrator peter schubert from the social office of the city of coburg remarked, the 150 places were already booked out weeks in advance. So if you want to be there next year, don’t hesitate.

A real fan community has already emerged for this small version of a flea market. Many of the hobby traders prefer to go to this small flea market. It’s less stressful than going to the flea market.

The stands are already defined in advance, and one can devote oneself to the construction in the early morning hours from 7 a.M. Onwards in a very relaxed manner. The focus of the rough flea market in the spring had shifted in recent years more and more into the night hours from saturday to sunday, and that does not please all people.

Crisp manner have achieved a lot

Crisp manner have achieved a lot

On thursday evening, it was not only the people of teuschnitz who followed the performance of their male ballet with excitement during the broadcast of the bavarian television program "franken sucht den supernarr" ("franconia is looking for the super jester"). Some may be disappointed that their favorites stumbled in the first semifinal, that they could not win the coveted trophy – the ticket to veitshochheim.
But there was hardly a trace of it among the actors. "We knew immediately after the recording in october in furth", declares city councillor peter bayer (CSU), who is an integral part of the teuschnitz men’s ballet. "But we had to keep quiet."
The participation in this competition has been worthwhile for the teuschnitzer. It was interesting for them to see how much effort goes into a three-minute shoot and how a recording is made. Even the hustle and bustle behind the scenes was a new experience. At the end of the day, it is not a matter of taking another step on the "career ladder" but on the cohesion within the troupe, emphasizes bayer.
In total, more than 30 musicians, comedians, and other voice artists have signed up for "franconia is looking for the super jester" advertised. The winner of the finale will now perform in front of an audience of millions at "fastnacht in franken" in february.
In the first semifinal, jochen schaible, the D’reichtlinger B’laidl B’addn and the gentlemen wiesentheid have advanced. With the winners of the second semi-final, they will be in the final in two weeks’ time.

Good location for special vehicles

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.
