Eltmanners are determined to score this time

The VGF marktredwitz, host in the game against VC eltmann on saturday at 8 pm, learn what it takes to lose this season. The upper franconians have dominated the regional league almost at will in recent years and, together with their fans, have earned themselves a reputation as a "volleyball stronghold" not only in the recent past elaborated. This year, however, things are not really going well for the VGF – only one win in the past six games was possible.

The host is dangerous because of its routine
Who, however, believes that the experienced "rawatzer had already passed their zenith, could quickly be proven wrong. "We're going into the game with a lot of respect", says vce attacker sebastian richter, who put in a strong first half of the 2012/13 season for his team after a six-month injury layoff in the early part of the season. "The players from marktredwitz make up for the lack of spirit of some of their older players with their enormous experience and tactical discipline", richter further analyzes. This could be seen, for example, in the clear 3:0 victory against kempfenhausen. The up-and-coming top volleyball players from the VCO kempfenhausen boarding school didn't stand a chance in the sebald hall, even though the VCO had already upset one or two of the league's favorites.

VC eschenbacher eltmann, for its part, is well on the way to achieving consistency at a high level after a few lapses in the outward series. Two victories before the christmas break were followed by a strong performance in the 3:1 home win against oelsnitz two weeks ago. Now, with the games against marktredwitz, neumarkt and friedberg, we have to play teams that are behind us in the standings. Then it's on to the direct competitors for the top positions, dresden and herrsching.

Regional brewery owners interviewed

Regional brewery owners interviewed

The german brewers don't have it easy. Sales have been declining steadily for years, the number of breweries is falling and the antitrust authorities are currently taking a keen interest in the major corporations. The five brewery owners who have taken a seat at the round table of the kitzingen newspaper have been proving for decades that things can be done differently.

Regional products are on the rise again. People are increasingly buying from local producers. Do the brewers realize this too??
Karl-heinz pritzl the topic of regionality is very important to all of us. Therein lies a difference to the faceless mass breweries. We are on site. Customers know us and we know our customers.

This is also noticeable in the sales?
Dietrich oechsner we are seeing a change in consumer attitudes that will affect everyone. In the 80s and 90s, it was still considered chic to buy as far away as possible. Now it's chic to have good quality from home.
Pritzl of course this is also due to the many food scandals in recent years. Customers are once again looking for proximity to the producer. This is better than buying something soulless from far away. To come back to sales: we are actually selling more beer in the region. But we lose out if we go a little further away. Schweinfurt, for example, is no longer a regional market for us.
Peter michael himmel the trend is clear: it's going from regional to local. We are selling more in the region, but beyond that it is becoming more difficult.

Archbishop hoards on women

Archbishop hoards on women

For the women’s commission of the archdiocese of bamberg we are looking for five new comrades-in-arms. The honorary body advises archbishop ludwig schick from a women’s perspective on church and social issues. We spoke with astrid franssen, equal opportunities officer in the ordinariate. She collects the written applications by e-mail (gleichstellung@erzbistum-bamberg.De ). For telephone inquiries she is available at 0951 / 502-1630.

Which women can apply for the vacant seats on the women’s commission??
Astrid franssen: all women who want to help shape the church can apply for the women’s commission. We’re looking for women who are involved in the church and who care about women’s issues. Ideally, the women’s commission will ultimately consist of women from all age groups, life situations and regions, thus reflecting the different realities of women’s lives in the diocese.

The women’s commission is an advisory body to the archbishop. Does he rely on the advice of women??
Archbishop schick is a good listener. The opinion of women is important to him, otherwise he would not have set up the women’s commission. Even if not every idea of the women’s commission is implemented immediately, the board takes these ideas seriously and incorporates them into its decisions and actions at the appropriate point.

Tuberculosis remains the most deadly infectious disease before aids

According to the world health organization (WHO), tuberculosis is still the most deadly infectious disease in the world, ahead of the immunodeficiency virus aids.

The title went to the district league team ATS kulmbach, which scored 10 points in four games and also had the best scorer in nino muller. The newcomer from spvgg bayreuth II scored four goals in total.

Second place was surprisingly secured by vfb kulmbach, who withdrew from the district league and will be playing in the A-class next season. The favorites vfr katschenreuth and BSC kulmbach (A-class) followed in 3rd and 4th place with six points each. Without a point, the host TSV melkendorf had to settle for last place. The fairnisspokal went to BSC kulmbach.

The first surprise was to be seen in the meeting of the two district league teams ATS kulmbach and vfr katschenreuth, which ATS won by a narrow margin of 1:0. Although the vfr was superior and pressed hard for the equalizer, it just wouldn’t happen. ATS stumbled a little against city rivals vfb when, after taking a 1-0 lead, they had to concede the equalizer shortly before the end. ATS goalkeeper dominic schuberth couldn’t hold the ball, tahir elhami was brought down in the penalty area and mustafa karli converted the penalty kick.
