How traffic jams in hablach are to be avoided in the future

How traffic jams in hablach are to be avoided in the future

It's quite unusual: normally, motorists can't wait until work on a construction site and the accompanying side effects such as detours or temporary traffic lights are finally over. In stockheim, they had at least one companion piece they liked to keep a little longer. Because when the B85 last received a new road surface, the traffic lights in the hablach district, where the B 85 and B 89 converge, were temporarily switched off completely. "Then the demand came from the people: 'let them out. It works much better without traffic lights'", says mayor rainer detsch ().

During this time, traffic was regulated exclusively according to the highway code – which, without traffic lights, makes the B 85 a priority road. "That worked', confirms detsch, who at the same time also warns. Although the traffic was able to move more freely, the situation without traffic lights was not entirely without danger for the pedestrians. Not a model for a permanent solution. But something will definitely change at the junction in the coming years.

In the municipal council, members were told on monday, after a previously asked question, that the house in the bend in front of the deutsche hof has been sold to the state building authority.

The kasendorf village renewal has been stopped

the kasendorf village renewal has been stopped

If a municipality is too financially strong, it can be a boomerang for a municipality. This is the painful experience that the people of kasendorf have now had. Because the income from business taxes is so high, the market does not receive any more demands for the renewal of the village. In the zultenberg district, this is now – unfinished – on ice; in welschenkahl, it was stopped even before the proper starting shot was fired.

"That's not possible", says otto arnold from zultenberg, who accompanied the demolition of the schoberlein house in the upper part of the village with his camera in 2011. A village square with a bus stop as well as a playground, parking lot and turning area was to be built on the site, for which the office for rural development had issued a request for funds. The office planned and planned, reduced the demand commitment, then withdrew it.

Europe can do more

Europe can do more

On 9. May we commemorate the fact that we live in peace and unity in europe – it is the anniversary of the schuman declaration. In 1950, the then french minister of the interior, robert schuman, gave a speech in which he explained his idea of a new form of political cooperation in europe.
Today, 68 years later, european unity is a valuable asset in many respects. On this occasion, a vernissage and a lecture under the motto "europe can do more" took place on monday evening in the rooms of the academy for new media in kulmbach instead of.
Nadja hirsch, member of the european parliament for the free democratic party (FDP), reported on current issues, but also on the problems facing europe: the refugee problem, a powerful european parliamentary army or an open internal market played just as important a role as digitization, the financial economy and the strengthening of regions.
"The EU must be in dialogue with the burghers, because it needs a basis that is supported by all", hirsch said. For that, we also need local roots, and it is important to defend what we have achieved in europe, including citizens’ rights and prosperity. "If you want to have a sustainable europe, you have to pay close attention to what steps are being taken now."
That europe is essential for us and also has a future, is also the view of thomas nagel. The district chairman of upper franconia said, "we have the future in our own hands, everyone can contribute to it. The EU needed courageous citizens who openly embraced european values. As an italian and a "glowing european" benjamin de pellegrin underlined the statements of hirsch and nagel. "I am also a foreigner", he said and smiled.

46 impressions

The impressive photo exhibition with 46 impressions from european countries showed how versatile europe is. Lovingly selected landscape photographs, portraits or snapshots from great britain, norway, spain and turkey, to name but a few, under the direction of manfred strohlein, will adorn the wall on the second floor of the kulmbach academy for new media over the next four weeks.

Longer delay in airport construction feared

Longer delay in airport construction feared

The route passes too close to the research reactor of the helmholtz center, it was said in the verdict. The risk of an air accident or terrorist attack had not been determined before the route was laid out. At present, there are only outdated risk assessments for the reactor.

A new invitation to tender for contracts could further delay the opening of the berlin brandenburg capital airport. However, no demolition work will be necessary for the conversion of the building services in the terminal. This is the result of statements made by project managers to the construction committee of the berlin house of representatives on wednesday. The companies involved in the fire protection system, bosch and siemens, acquitted themselves of any mistakes. The brandenburg state parliament has since set up a special committee to look into the billion-euro project.

In addition to the brandenburg municipalities of stahnsdorf and kleinmachnow, the city of teltow, several landowners and residents of the wannsee had filed a complaint with the OVG. They feared that the planned flight route over the wannsee could lead to arm and other environmental pollution. However, the main concern was that an aircraft could crash into a research reactor on the wannsee lake.

Going to the polls: now is the time!

Going to the polls: now is the time!

The time has come, the federal elections are just around the corner. So it’s time to start thinking about the right cross. But somehow it seems that the election has long been decided. Debates about the upcoming election day are more present on television than at the dinner table. But the election doesn’t just affect those whose heads are poking out for our attention on election posters. But also us. You and me.

The question who I will vote for was quite difficult to answer. This year i may elect the federal parliament for the third time. And I have the feeling that it is even more difficult for me to make a decision than in the years before.

I have done the election-o-mat, have read party programs, have compared old voting results. And somehow I had with each party something to criticize. So it’s easy to say "the politicians do what they want anyway" or "my vote won’t change the result anyway".

“Dead air” in the open-air swimming pools

Splashing in the pools of the "kunomare" open-air pool. Rain drops fall incessantly from the black clouds above the swimming pool. Alexander ring puts the pressure washer aside and starts cursing about the bad weather: "man, oh man, is this a disaster." He invites you into his office, which on this cold and rainy day has become a warm room with the heating on.

Actually, the gates of the pool were supposed to open on 9 september. May was open, but the month of midsummer, which this year did not live up to its name, had put a spoke in the town of burgkunstadt's wheel. "Only when the weather is good again will we start bathing", says ring. The water temperature in the pool is not much warmer than 16 degrees, according to the pool attendant. "The sun, which is currently shining at a low level, ensures that the solar system, which is used to heat the pools, does not produce any warmth."

Mainleus, redwitz and kronach – in the neighborhood, the outdoor pools were open despite the bad weather. The female also ring, who likes to visit other outdoor pools in his free time out of professional interest. "I would like to see how things are done there", says the enthusiastic swimmer who lives in kronach. There he pursues his hobby in the swimming department of the gymnastics club. In the "crana mare" outdoor pool in kronach and in other bathing facilities, he has made the same experience over and over again in recent weeks: "everywhere is dead air." For him, the question is: "why open the open-air swimming pool because of a few handfuls of guests??" The answer: "it's not worth it!" That's how the city saw it too, he says.

Hochstadt murder victims remain unforgotten

Hochstadt murder victims remain unforgotten

Who doesn’t know the saying: "he’s got a few bodies in the cellar"?." For a man from hochstadt, this saying became reality in september 1985, when he tried to lower the floor level in the basement of his house on schlossberg and stumbled on human bones.

One of the first to arrive on the scene was karl-heinz feuerlein from the local heritage society. What goes through your mind when you suddenly find yourself standing in front of the remains of human life?? "You are gobsmacked when you see the crowd", feuerlein answers the question "there were already quite a few needles lying around free."

However, it quickly became clear to him that the skeletons were not of recent origin. "They were not the first. We knew that they had to be from the time of the swedish wars around 1633. The swedes were in town for two to three days. When they left, the people of hochstadt came back and buried the dead. I’m sure there are more", he adds.
