He deliberately hit his ex-girlfriend with his car in order to kill her: a 47-year-old man has been sentenced to ten years in prison for attempted murder at trier regional court.

The german from mettlach in saarland had "waylaid" the woman at the end of november 2018 in taben-rodt (rhineland-palatinate) on the way to her workplace and then hit her head-on at speed 30 with the intention of killing her.

The woman, who also lives in mettlach, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries. She still suffers physically and psychologically from the consequences today. She is still unable to work. "Her life changed completely from one day to the next," said sidebar prosecutor hanna kullmann about the victim. "She is still afraid today."

Before the 16. In the nineteenth century, the far east was a largely unknown world for europeans. That changed in the 17. In the 16th century, through the increasing overseas trade in the eastern seas, through the first tribute legations and especially through the catholic mission in the far east. Jesuit missionaries provided the first information about the country and people, culture and religion of the chinese, and many nobles in europe, inspired among other things by king ludwig XIV in france, began to become enthusiastic about palace and garden buildings in the chinese style, including the members of the ernestine line of the wettins, to whom the coburg dukes belong.

More than cosmetics at the memorial

More than cosmetics at the memorial

The memorial in the cemetery is getting on in years. Now it will be fundamentally renovated. In its most recent meeting, the building committee undertook a site visit. Mayor helmut fischer (CSU) recalled that the site was inaugurated in 1959. It was renovated in 1984/85 and now, 28 years later, it is in a very bad condition.
In principle, as the mayor explained, the flat between the memorial plaques at the front of the memorial and the stairs up should be shortened. The old washed concrete slabs will be replaced by new slabs, and the steps and both stone figures will be sandblasted. The inscriptions on the memorial plaques are also being restored.
According to the expert opinion of local councillor and gardener karl nemmert (CSU), the rough hedges, shrubs and walls should be removed and a new hedge inserted lower down, which can then grow upwards. However, the building committee has not yet reached a decision on this matter. This was allowed to stand only in a future meeting. Until then, the municipal administration wants to obtain offers and clarify details. Attention should also be paid to the ground surrounding the memorial. This is to be redesigned – among other things with trees.

From the local history
If you look back in the michelau local chronicle, the municipality of michelau has already had several war memorials in the past. The first was built after the war of 1870/71 between the church and the current town hall in 1890. A second war memorial was erected on 12. Inaugurated in november 1922. After the second world war, it was decided to move the memorial to another site, namely the cemetery. Already on 11. December 1957 the order for the two sculptures that still dominate the monument was given to the local sculptor friedrich steiner for 4500 marks. Finally, the memorial, which cost a total of DM 40,500 and was the third in the town, was erected on the 31st. May 1959 inaugurated in a ceremonial hour (source: "800 jahre michelau in oberfranken" by herbert perzel). In 1964, the plating and lettering were overhauled, and in 1966, the monument was restored. The inscription plates were replaced by bronze plates, the wooden cross by one made of metal, manufactured by master locksmith otto schardt. On the side pylons the year of the two rough wars were attached and hooks for wreaths were let in. In 1985, the entire memorial underwent a thorough renovation. Now a general renovation is pending.

New mass protests against algeria’s president bouteflika

New mass protests against algeria's president bouteflika

Algerian caricaturists have always been biting. Sometimes a general holds the infusion bag of the seriously ill president, sometimes a military man in a wheelchair lifts him up so that the president can cast his vote in the election and reach the ballot box.

But one of the most frequent motifs is: the president as ghost. It has been a long time since abdelaziz bouteflika showed himself to his people. And above all the young people in the country have had enough of the rehearsed political theater.

Since bouteflika announced in the middle of the month that he would run for president in the presidential election on 18 june, the. April to run for a fifth term, demonstrations are taking place all over the country. Hundreds of thousands of people have turned out in recent days, and on friday around ten thousand gathered in the capital algiers alone. They demanded that bouteflika not run again.

Full concentration on voluntary work

Full concentration on voluntary work

Alfred gundling adjusted to a largely new working environment six years ago. The trained metalworker ran for mayor of the city on behalf of the CSU. "Because until then there was only one candidate", remembers the 59-year-old. A selection is entirely in the interests of democracy. It took a long time to get his employer to give him the green light for this sideline activity. That’s why he announced his arrival comparatively late.

But the double burden of work and honorary office after gundling’s election did not last long. Six months after the election, his company closed because there was no successor for the sick boss. Suddenly everything was different. "I have not taken on any more work in order to concentrate more on the office", says gundling.

In addition to his duties as mayor, gundling and his family run a winegrowing business on the side. He cultivates 0.6 hectares of vineyard and grows wine in his own cellar. In the heckenwirtschaft, the gundlings organize wine tastings for registered groups, such as spa guests or federal police officers. "But since I’ve been burgermeister, that’s become less of a problem", the incumbent alludes to the many evening appointments associated with the office.

Appointment emergency in upper franconia

Appointment emergency in Upper Franconia

Torsten ernstberger

the upper franconian district committee of the bavarian fubball association reacts to the many weather-related cancellations and the resulting lack of dates for catch-up games with an exceptional regulation.
So now between the penultimate (13. May) and the last match day (19. May) a make-up date can be set. Until now, the principle was that the games on the last two days of the season had to be played at the same time throughout the league.
If this option does not solve the scheduling problem, parts can also be transferred to the 1. May can be moved. Kickoff should be at 11 a.M., so as not to compete with the cup games on that day.
In addition, the district committee is offering a third possibility: in order to ease the tightly packed match calendar, the last match day can be postponed to whit monday (21. May). A season extension is also possible, but this must be decided unanimously within the counties.
"We will intensively discuss the possibilities offered by the district", says gerd rieb, group game director in circle 1 (bamberg/bayreuth/ kulmbach). "It is important for us to have the clubs on board." The district match committee has therefore already set meeting dates. The clubs from the bayreuth/kulmbach area will meet on friday (7 p.M.) in the gymnasium of TSV trebgast, those from the bamberg/steigerwald area on saturday (10 a.M.).30 o'clock) at the RSC oberhaid.

Clubs reach their limits

"It is clear: due to the many game failures, the clubs have reached the limits of their possibilities", says rieb. The weidenberger clarifies that a season extension is currently only possible for the district class abwarts. The district league must adhere to the framework calendar, as the relegation with the district league teams was pending.
"In the long term, however, we may have to rethink and detach the district league from the county league", says rieb. However, this is only possible if the relegation rules are reformed. The district league champions would remain eligible for promotion, while the runners-up would have to be guaranteed another promotion spot, which they would then play out among themselves.
