In well-deserved retirement

After 47 years in public service, including almost 30 years at the bad kissingen district court, brigitte zecha has now been given a well-deserved retirement by reinhard oberndorfer, the director of the district court in bad kissingen.

In 1971, mrs. Zecha began her career as an administrative employee at the city administration in mellrichstadt and four years later at the mellrichstadt administrative community. In 1989, the 34-year-old moved to the district court in bad kissingen, because she had married and moved to munnerstadt in the meantime.

"The poor rail connection from munnerstadt to mellrichstadt was the decisive factor at the time.", according to mrs. Zecha, who still lives in munnerstadt with her husband. Dunning department and family court were the first stations in bad kissingen. But already at the end of the year there were bottlenecks at the district court and so she moved, at that time still separately accommodated, to the guardianship and probate court in hartmannstrabe.

It took a little time. But now the structures are in place. And what is even better: the population is getting more and more used to the rescue dogs.

Iran is a troubled country. Politically unstable and geologically no less so. The arabian plate is shifting there under the eurasian plate. It’s no wonder that severe earthquakes occur again and again – most recently at the end of november 2017 in the province of kermanshah. The country is classified as a high-risk area for earthquakes.

Siggi hofer was in iran for the first time in 2003. The earthquake in the city of bam claimed around 40,000 lives at the time. Many victims were buried under the trummers. Were there still living? The red crescent – the iranian equivalent of the bavarian red cross – called for help from abroad. The beginning of a success story that has lasted more than 15 years. "The colleagues in iran realized how effective a search for missing persons with the help of trained dogs can be," recalls hofer, who has been working for the red cross since 1991. The idea came up to found an iranian rescue dog team. Before that, however, contractual and emotional limits had to be overcome.

An unusually violent typhoon brought torrential rain to tokyo and surrounding regions, killing at least two people.

Dozens were injured in the storm’s booms on saturday, and several people were considered missing in the evening (local time), japanese television reported.

Because of the danger posed by the precipitation, which threatened to become the worst in about 60 years, authorities had issued the highest warning level for the first time for tokyo and six other regions. In the evening (local time), however, the intensity of the hurricane was downgraded from "very strong" to "strong.

her highness carolin and rudi rub from sand am main

For the tenth year in a row, the reigning french wine queen visited the abt degen wine valley. On tuesday, carolin meyer took a whole day to get to know the winegrowing region. Artur steinmann, president of the french winegrowers’ association, was also present, and emphasized the unique selling point: "the visit is a fixed part of the annual calendar. In no other area the wine queen spends so much time at the sticks as in the abt-degen wine valley."

Zeil’s mayor, thomas stadelmann, who has been chairman of the abt degen wine valley for seven years, was pleased that this winegrowers’ association has now entered people’s minds and compared it to a small child who could just crawl at the beginning but has now learned to walk.

Traditional work in the vineyard

During the eight-hour round trip, wine queen carolin meyer, who was traveling with abt-degen wine valley princess anna-lena werb and sander wine princess anna-lena gottschalk, among others, had a lot to marvel at. For example, at the peter gotz winery in zell am ebersberg. The sideline winemaker, who cultivates just two hectares, attaches great importance to the authentic and original.

Bayer has to accept a loss of billions

A weak business with seeds and sprays has resulted in a billion euro loss for the pharmaceutical and agrochemical group bayer.

Due in part to write-downs in the agricultural business, the dax-listed group reported a net loss of around 2.7 billion euros for the third quarter.

A year ago, bayer had achieved a surplus of one billion euros. Group sales – i.E. Including the other pharmaceutical and over-the-counter medicines businesses – fell by 13.5 percent to eur 8.5 billion in the summer quarter.

Brk attracts nursing staff to hochstadt with residential home

The green sliding shutters shine from afar on the white facade of the new BRK home in etzelskirchen. The modern architecture of the building, designed by herzogenaurach architect stefan quandt with ten residential units, blends harmoniously into the surrounding landscape. On the outskirts of hochstadt, however, this time it was not a normal multi-family house that was built, but a forward-looking project. A separate dormitory for prospective nurses of the senior citizens’ home in ezzilostrabe.

"It took less than a year from the groundbreaking ceremony to today’s inauguration", proudly reports hans-peter lechner of the VR-bank erlangen-hochstadt-herzogenaurach. The chairman of the BRK district association erlangen-hochstadt and CSU member of parliament stefan muller emphasized in his welcoming speech that this is a showpiece of a special kind. It is not enough to build new nursing homes if there are not enough nurses available. "Due to the increasingly aging population, we must invest in the future today. We need affordable housing so that we can offer young people in particular, who often come from poorer areas of europe and africa, a long-term perspective to stay if they choose to become nurses."

Following the moving words of the protestant pastor hans-friedrich schafer, the new residential home was blessed by pastor kilian kammer on the roof terrace of the building, against the autumnal backdrop of the nearby forest.

Schlager at the lauscha train station

A 43-year-old man was the victim of an assault on thursday evening and suffered severe injuries. Police in sonneberg are investigating four suspects for dangerous bodily harm in this case. The situation had escalated at the train station in lauscha. Previously, the late victim and the four suspects, aged 22, 24, 27 and 29, were traveling together on a train from sonneberg to neuhaus am rennweg. Already during the train ride there were verbal attacks from the group against the 43 year old man. During a long stop in lauscha, he asked the driver of the locomotive to notify the police. The group noticed this and as a result, the 43-year-old was beaten several times by one of the men with a currently unknown object. Afterwards the group left the train station, but could be arrested by the police a short time later. A 24-year-old man already had a warrant for his arrest and was taken to a correctional facility. After the police had taken the remaining suspects into custody, they were able to leave the station.

basketball was the dominant theme in dettelbach

Alicia is literally hanging in the air. The petite sixth-grader stretches her arms as long as she can to reach the three-meter-high basketball hoop with her fingertips.She doesn’t need a ladder today, because jason boone and oliver clay, both professional basketball players of the s.Oliver baskets wurzburg, lift them high. "It was totally cool up there", she exclaims enthusiastically when she has solid ground under her feet again. Almost like flying.

The two basketball cracks sit calmly at a table in the gymnasium of the dettelbach secondary school and sign autographs. The fact that the autograph cards eventually run out doesn’t detract from the unbridled enthusiasm at the school. On the contrary, the schoolchildren have everything signed where there is room for two signatures. T-shirts, basketballs, funf-euro bills. "It’s now worth more than just five euros", grins michael heb. The eighth-grader triumphantly holds up the blue banknote, showing it to his friends before pocketing it again.

Commitment is required, after all, it’s not every day that you have two bundesliga players as guests. "I didn’t even know that they were coming today and only heard it in the announcement earlier, says christoph barthel from the 7a class, for example. "I think that’s totally cool", he also thinks.

Retterner have the racers fed up

The safety of pedestrians and cyclists in and around rettern interested the burghers who had gathered at the burgers’ meeting at the hubert inn. Even in places where the speed is limited, they speed, complained a burger.

The suggestion of the eggolsheimer mayor claus schwarzmann (BB), to limit the speed in the local passage and then also to flash, they agreed: "I’d rather pay a lecture fee than that my daughter is run over", argued one of them.

County is responsible

The district of forchheim is responsible for reducing the speed limit to 30 kilometers per hour as well as for a possible crossing aid at the entrances to the towns. Schwarzmann pointed out that the municipality itself could not take action here, and recommended civic engagement to the rescuers: "seek out the responsible people in the district, personal visits by burghers can be very efficient." If the district comes to a traffic inspection, the citizens can also participate and clearly present their views.

Kitzingen and schwarzach: three drunks lay on the road - urinating in an ambulance

Several people contacted the police in kitzingen on tuesday and reported that a drunk was lying on the road in the area of the hindenburgring. The police discovered at said place a 32-year-old, who was taken into custody after a medical first aid with a value of over 4 per mille.

On tuesday evening, around 21.00 o’clock, then a patrol crew in the urban area of kitzingen met a 17-year-old, who was also lying on the ground heavily intoxicated. The young man had already vomited and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The "crowning" there was for the officers of the PI kitzingen then on wednesday morning around 03.00 o’clock in the industriestrabe in schwarzach am main. Here, too, a 54-year-old man was found heavily intoxicated and asleep on the street. After the man had been woken up, he behaved intrusively, was slightly aggressive and, to make matters worse, peed in the ambulance. The 54-year-old received a report, was taken into custody and brought to a detention room of the PI kitzingen.
