This applies above all to the period between midnight and 6 a.M. Regardless of the installation of the mobile video surveillance, the stone road remains an essential part of the police situation assessment and operation planning of the police prasidium upper franconia and the police inspection coburg.

Strullendorf spills over

Strullendorf spills over

Record attendance! This second october sunday will go down in the history books of the community of strullendorf. The triple combination of autumn and farmers’ market/apple market/old woman’s summer with temperatures above 20 degrees made for visitor numbers that have probably never been reached in strullendorf before. Wherever one inquired, the mark of 20,000 guests (from the entire french area) was classified as realistic.

The whole area and all the roads, except of course the 1200 meters of the market, look like one big parking area. Over long stretches of the eight-hour double market, the strolls along lindenallee and kalterfeldstrabe, and the bamberg sandkerwa, were as busy as the endangered.

"We follow the apple market year after year", a couple from buttenheim brought the magnetic attraction of apples including additional products to the point.

Kitzingen cemetery: a lot of grass grows over it

kitzingen cemetery: a lot of grass grows over it

Who has patience, can walk through the rows and pay the green rectangles. After just a few meters, it’s clear that there are an astonishing number of them. Uwe plomitzer from the cemetery administration knows the exact number: 161 graves are currently vacant in the old cemetery in kitzingen. Like many other cities, kitzingen needs to think about how to deal with this "vacancy" to be dealt with.

There are 1411 graves in the old cemetery, which was laid out in 1542 and extended several times until 1889. Impressive tombs and even graves commemorate people who played a significant role in the development of the town. Well-known business families, brewery owners, composers and mayors are buried there.
"It’s kitzingen’s town history that you read here", says franz bohm. He has been chairman of the old cemetery interest group since may. It was founded after the war with the aim of restoring the severely damaged cemetery until the town could operate it itself again. More than 60 years later, this goal has long since been achieved. Nevertheless, the cemetery is still close to the heart of the community of interest – and so the many empty graves are also an issue for the 240-member paying association.

A little more than 20 years ago, there was not a single free grave in the old cemetery, uwe plomitzer remembers vividly. The deceased were therefore buried in the new cemetery. Bohm considers the cemetery opposite the falterturm to be ideal, especially for the burghers from the settlement, since it is not as far away as the new cemetery at the other end of the city.

North korea: gunboat policy brings no solution

North Korea: gunboat policy brings no solution

If you want to divert attention from internal problems, the best way to rally your own people is to make the threat from an external enemy as dazzling as possible.
And military threat backdrops erected. Whether they are not only potemkin’s villages, however, remains to be seen. Just as the internal dynamics of this bizarre monarchic-communist dynasty are difficult for western observers to assess. Nevertheless, kim jong un and his camarilla could not act irrationally. The regime feels threatened by the U.S., and in his view not without reason. Provocations like the present one – by the way also from the south via military manover – have been part of korean everyday life for years and are ritualized. Alone, whether rational thinking will reign in all phases of the conflict and especially on the side of the young dictator remains doubtful.
The current crisis can only be solved by the intervention of the authorities. Which means for north korea, that china has to call off the alliance. So will the u.S., which will calculate that its gunboat policy only fuels one like kim jong un. Excessive accommodation, on the other hand, is not appropriate. The mullahs in iran will carefully observe the behavior of the west and draw their conclusions.

Marian grotto in roblach mountain celebrated anniversary

The mariengrotte on the right hand side at the entrance to tiefenbachtal is adorned with a beautiful flower arrangement. The furnishings of the small pointed-arched prayer house are simple and homely. The centerpiece is a life-size, youthful statue of the virgin mary, which looks down on the viewer from its pedestal in motherly goodness. For half a century, the treasure pocket embedded in a rock has invited people to pause and pray.

The gem in roblacher berg was solemnly consecrated in spring 1968 under father martin schneidtberger, SDB. This was the fulfillment of a heartfelt wish for the great marian devotee, who worked in steinberg from 1966 to 1972.

In front of the marian grotto, many believers of the parish gathered to celebrate the anniversary with a devotion and a procession of lights through the village. The prayers, impulses and songs carefully selected and compiled by the parish council made the devotion a moving experience. The harmonious singing of the liederkranz gundelsdorf and the atmospheric sounds of the musikverein steinberg contributed to this.

Strong increase in the tax power of the district

Strong increase in the tax power of the district

Kulmbach is top – at least in upper franconia and in terms of current tax and apportionment power. This was the result of the youngest corner data, which kreiskammerer rainer dippold presented to the district committee on monday. According to available estimates, the district’s tax power will increase by more than ten percent to over 62.7 million euros next year – an increase of approximately 5.9 million euros over the previous year. The main contributor was the noticeable increase in business tax revenue, which rose by almost 23 percent to over 22.6 million euros (2017: 18.4 million). The levy power is up 9.1 percent, and in euros it has risen from 6.4 million euros to 76.8 million euros.

With these figures, kulmbach climbs to the top of all municipalities in a comparison of upper franconia. In the bavarian ranking, the district also rose by five places, but at 47th place, it still ranks in the lower midfield and remains a lowly light compared with high flyers such as upper bavaria or swabia.

"These are extremely good figures for us", said district administrator klaus peter sollner (). He did not hide the fact that the stabilization aid from munich had contributed to the positive development of the finances. In five years, the district has benefited from a total of seven million euro. "But it also shows that our efforts to consolidate the budget are bearing fruit and that this is being rewarded by the state government.", said sollner. Current allocations of two million euros again went into debt repayment.

“Hospital” forecourt is being paved

Sandblasted, flamed, sandblasted" – gerhard zedler, head of the building authority, crouches down on the pavement in front of the hospital's former pfortnerhaus and runs his fingers over stone surfaces and joints.
The city council's planning and environment committee met for a site visit at the old hospital construction site to select the paving. Three sample flats have been prepared by employees of the building yard. All granite, but much smoother than the cobblestones previously laid in the city center.

Fubganger friendly

Several committee members carefully test the patterns with their fingertips and by walking over them. The stones appear light, very light, but zedler assures that the material will darken after a while. Even a giebtest is announced. This does not agree with the provisional grouting with fine chippings.
The left pattern, according to zedler, has the straightest edges, therefore it can be laid even with the narrowest interspace. An argument that particularly appeals to manfred hummer (), who as liaison to the OBA (open work for the handicapped) pays special attention to the concerns of the handicapped residents of the city. Because not only once have complaints of handicapped people and wheelchair users landed with the administration that here and there getting ahead is difficult.
"This is the plaster i have been waiting for for years." Manfred mauser (FBF) sums up the opinion of his colleagues. Reinhold otzelberger (SPD) has hardly opened the committee as deputy chairman of the meeting when the city council members are already in agreement: the left-hand pavement, the one with the narrow joints, is the one to go for.
