Rough 70th birthday celebration. Kindergarten anniversary

The 70th anniversary of the catholic kindertagesstatte st. Bernhard in ebrach began with a festive service in the parish church of maria himmelfahrt, celebrated by dean albert muller and musically accompanied by the kindergarten children and the church band "cyriakus" from staffelbach.
At the beginning of the service, the children buried all the service-goers in different languages. In the meantime, children from different nations attend the kita st. Bernhard. One child from each nation introduced themselves on behalf of the other children. The diversity of the kindergarten ebrach was to be expressed in this service as well as the connection with the partner institution in senegal. The children rolled a rough globe into the center of the church to symbolize that god holds the whole world in his hand, that everyone is equal before him, and that everyone is of equal value, regardless of whether he is rough or small, dark or light, from germany or from another country in the world.
The head of the daycare center, nicole wachter, also addressed this issue in her welcoming speech. She emphasized that over the past 70 years, the kita has evolved from a children's recreation home to a house for children with family services, and that many institutions, full-time employees and volunteers have been involved in this process. She thanked everyone for their tireless commitment to making the center a place where children can learn and play, grow and mature, and find a place to develop and grow.
After the service, the steigerwald musicians and the local associations accompanied the kindergarten children with their teachers, parents, grandparents and guests of honor in a procession through the town to the kindergarten. There, a communal lunch awaited the numerous visitors, so that they could prepare themselves for the varied afternoon program. A market of possibilities offered something for every guest. Everyone was excitedly awaiting the special highlight of the afternoon. The magician manolo enchanted not only the children with his magic tricks, but also amazed many adults.
A real birthday party naturally also includes presents, so the head of the daycare center, nicole wachter, was able to thank the community of ebrach, the burger association and the fruit and gardening association of ebrach, and the sparkasse bamberg for their generous monetary gifts.

Live music also works in corona times. Not only as streaming on the internet, but as a welcome performance in the open air, as the fuschter musikanten proved. They took up a recommendation of their federations and played – respecting the praventivmabnahmen – in the straben and on the squares of the native place to the joy of the listeners.

"We have on 22. March with our small concerts and have so far performed 17 times in different formations and at different places", reports ex-chairman manfred oftring. Always on sunday evening at 6 p.M. Music sounded in a street, at a place or place, where active members of the music association live. They came together to play a standchen to get people out of their houses and to listen to them.

For this purpose, oftring and his son markus rewrote pieces to suit the respective instrumental instrumentation. "We open with a church song followed by brass music of all colors", he informs. The "bohemian dream" can do that, "on the bird meadow", "high firs", "we musicians" or the title "thoughts are free" his. The performers appear in various rough groups and sometimes as soloists. And the musical offer is of course free of charge.

Michael lane must run against gil ofarim

Slowly, routine returns to michael lane's daily life as a candidate. While he was still insanely nervous in the first round of the casting show, he is now, shortly before his second major live appearance, trying to take things in his stride. "I just don't stress so much anymore", says michael in an interview with our site.

In the first live show, michael had to compete against his teammate brandon stone – and sang "seven days by craig david, a song that brandon of all people had suggested to him while making music together. Michael wanted to show a different, new side of himself, but coach xavier naidoo didn't like it very much: he gave brandon more points than michael. It was only thanks to calls from michael's fans that the frenchman was able to make it to the quarterfinals of the show after all. "Xavier said to me that the song didn't suit me, that I should show more feeling and that I should choose my own songs", says michael.

This advice was taken by the sympathetic ex-soldier. With "angel by sarah mclachlan the 26-year-old again puts everything on rough feelings. This also clearly distinguishes him from his opponent in the show, the ex-teenie star gil and son of abi ofarim, who delivers more rock performances.

Newcomers ask for 'kerwa dance'

"At the kerchweih, a win is mandatory, the three points should definitely stay in sonnefeld."
The usually rather reserved bastian renk is rightly more euphoric than usual ahead of the sonnefeld festival weekend and is naturally hoping for a corresponding crowd again in sunday’s landesliga home game against rising star spvgg erlangen.
Moreover, he said, the luck has come back. After a strong performance against schwabach, his team needed luck goddess fortuna in the final phase for the unexpected three-goal victory. The equalizing goal of the hosts was several times in the air, but with a strong fighting performance, an outstanding goalkeeper patrick jauch and just the famous quantchen it was again enough for something payable.
Now it’s back to the drawing board for the up-and-coming player against a direct competitor for the places in the rear midfield. The spvgg erlangen started well as a promoted team and had a little slack in the last weeks. So while TSV’s form curve has clearly been pointing upwards in recent games, the exact opposite was the case in erlangen. "If we manage to pick up where we left off in the last few matches and go one better, our chances are very good. It must be clear to everyone that it will not happen by itself and that we need a top performance to win this duel", according to renk.

There are still black sheep when it comes to mull separation in the habberge district

there are still black sheep when it comes to mull separation in the habberge district

Around 1100 tons of biowaste from the habfurt municipal area are processed annually at the habberge gmbh compost and soil plant in mariaburghausen. Among other things, this is what mayor gunther werner and the city councilors learned during a tour at the invitation of the company management.

The two managers, manfred eichhorn and klaus merkel, showed the committee the path of organic waste within the plant. The material is stored in special rotting boxes with ventilation and must then be allowed to ripen. "This process takes about seven weeks and does not depend on the eave temperature", eichhorn explained. After removing foreign matter with a coarse screening machine and by hand, the finished compost, which is particularly appreciated by farmers, will be offered for sale. Popular with private customers, he says, is humus compost, which is mixed with sandy material and is also available in small quantities. "Composting is the most coherent circular recycling there is", the two managing directors agree. The sampling and analysis of the finished product is carried out eight times a year by an independent institute, so that high-quality compost is always guaranteed, said merkel.

"The majority of the population separates its mull very conscientiously", eichhorn praised the burgers, but also pointed out that about five percent of the biomull was contaminated with foreign substances. From plastic to coarse stones to entire bags of residual gauze were found upon delivery to the plant. This extra effort in sorting could be avoided by more conscientious separation.

Noble seat, ruin, excursion destination

"It's quite exciting when you climb up the burgberg from the parking lot at the edge of the forest in the oberwohlsbach district to the lauterburg castle. If you turn around, you not only have the panorama of the coburg region in front of you, but you can also see the staffelberg and to the east even the kordigast", finds ingrid ott, local historian of the coburg district and for many years involved in the rodental local history society.

She looked into the past of the castle ruins and stated: "you have to look back a long way to find the roots of the castle." The "castrum luterberg" was presented for the first time actually mentioned in a document from 1156. At that time, the lords of wolfeswach were the lords of the castle, who held the castrum luterberg as a fief of the counts of henneberg. They also gave their names to the villages of ober- and unterwohlsbach, today parts of the city of rodental. The castrum luterberg has had changing owners in its long history. So also the gentlemen of schaumberg. Adam von schaumberg comes from this lineage, he was first mentioned in a document in 1471 and died in 1524.

This lived at the time of the reformation on the lauterburg. Adam von schaumberg, an educated knight, both a bamberger and a saxon councillor, took issue at lauterburg with the still prevailing catholic doctrine, the pope's position of power, confession, mercenary salvation, absolution and the veneration of saints. Based on martin luther's pamphlet of 1520, he wrote "to the christian nobility of the german nation on the betterment of the christian state" a booklet for the "common people to help understand the new faith. This book was so important because it was the first theological writing by a layman for other laymen in the electoral saxonian order of coburg. The purpose is explained by the author himself: "this little book is called the leyen spiegell". In it the pious ungelerten eynfeltigen christian men are to see and learn; what ine according to the words of chrsti our dear lord; his heyligen apostell and ewanngelisten; to believe and to do is."

The mysterious disappearance of cats in the district of bad kissingen

The mysterious disappearance of cats in the district of bad kissingen

"It is simply mysterious", says ursula boehm. She is the director of the wannigsmuhle animal shelter and is currently making an experience that she had never heard of before: "cats are currently disappearing in hammelburg and bad kissingen, and now there are also more reports of missing cats than usual from bad konigshofen."

"An insane amount"

There are "an insane number" reports first received from hammelburg and bad kissingen. She understands this to mean that up to five missing animals a day have been reported – the average is about two cats a day in the catchment area of the animal shelter, which is responsible for the district of bad kissingen. "There are now isolated reports from bad kissingen and hammelburg that the animals have been found." But now the news came from the area of bad konigshofen.

"We simply can’t explain it", says ursula boehm. "In the past, tens of years ago, there were indeed cat catchers who stole the animals for fur production or for animal experiments. But that’s all in the past: today the fences find their ‘goods’ at low cost in the eastern block countries. So far, no cat owners have reported the disappearance of their pet to the police department of bad kissingen.
