Financial injection for a new building

Financial injection for a new building

The master school will not be a caritas facility, but the dormitory will now be demolished and replaced by a new building. This is the most important information that came out of the schreiner facility on friday, when the members of the bodies that finance the school as a special-purpose association met there. Money played a major role in the process. At the beginning of his term as chairman, district council president erwin dotzel cancelled the previous year's decision to carry out a general renovation of the school building and the adjacent dormitory.
The reason for this abrupt turnaround is that a new grant has been received for the dormitory, according to which 90 percent of the costs will be covered by the state of bavaria.
"However, this will require a new building and not just modernization and renovation, as had previously been envisaged and decided upon. Now we have to think hard about whether to rush into a new building", said dotzel, but almost gave himself the answer. Which the district builder ottmar zipperich put it like this: "we just have to prove that the general renovation is 80 percent of a new building, which from my point of view is not a problem, and with that we got a replacement new building of the same rough only with a different, much better cut. And for that, there was 90 percent", the official almost started to revel. Previously, the investment volume had been 2.4 million euros.

Financing model devised

But that's not all: there is also more money for the renovations that are planned for the school building itself, with a clever financing model using the (financially weak) district of habberge's highest rate of FAG funds should be knocked out. The postponement of the acceptance tests by one year was therefore considered acceptable by all members of the association. Only the heating system will be renovated this year, as one of the boilers has stopped working.

Stamm and eck helped

How the unexpected rain of subsidies came about, district president dotzel explained with a dash of sufficiency. Actually, he and managing director klingert had gone to munich for talks about the personnel cost subsidy.
Dotzel had complained to state parliament president barbara stamm (CSU) that the master school was only reimbursed 60 percent of personnel costs, while regular schools were reimbursed 100 percent. Klingert: "we already had an inkling that this was going to be difficult."
For this reason, barbara stamm, as chairwoman of caritas, came up with the idea of continuing the schreiner school as a caritas school in order to obtain higher personnel cost subsidies in this way.
"After intensive evaluation, however, it was decided that it would be better to continue the master school in this form, because the other form had more disadvantages than advantages, according to managing director klingert, the result was as follows. "Moreover, our school doesn't fit into the caritas portfolio at all", erwin dotzel drew a line under this debate, from which nevertheless positive realizations arose. Because state secretary gerhard eck (CSU) had also taken part in the talks in munich, he brought up the idea of subsidizing parts of the general renovation through the state's new demand program, the municipal investment fund, which would increase the rate from 40 to 90 percent.
This opportunity is now to be seized, which is why the delay of the mabnahme by one year is considered a small ubel. "At the school, we think and act for the long term anyway", chairman dotzel praised the school management and staff.
Dotzel commented on the report by principal oliver dunisch, saying that this is one reason why the championship school is not only perceived in the district and in lower franconia, but in the whole of germany.

Karmann wants to continue

Karmann wants to continue

In 2014, michael karmann (zwdg/ CSU) won the election for mayor of buttenheim against bernhard bickel (NWG). Now he is running as the only mayoral candidate. The question is how many voters will make use of the option to write a different name on the ballot paper.

In any case, karmann sees himself in the right position as mayor "because I will gladly continue to contribute my qualifications as an administrative specialist, my proven commitment and the experience I have gained in office in order to lead the market town of buttenheim into a sustainable future together with all those who want to work together in a goal-oriented and serious manner". What annoyed you most about your community last year and why?? The term "gegert is perhaps a little overstated. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the way deutsche bahn dealt with what I considered to be justified municipal interests in the ICE expansion project. Recently, however, i have noticed an improvement in cooperation.

What has been your greatest political achievement in the last six years??

More profit in the electric year: vw earns well

More profit in the electric year: vw earns well

Further increase in SUV sales and in-house cost-cutting will give the VW group’s core brand a significantly higher operating profit in 2019.

Ahead of the important year 2020, with the launch of many new models, the wolfsburg-based carmaker also wants to underfund additional investments worth billions in its electric fleet. In the e-mass model ID that has just been launched.3 there is still a hitch in one important area – but the production target is there.

"In a shrinking overall market, the volkswagen brand has gained market share worldwide and substantially improved its operating result," said managing director ralf brandstatter, looking back on the year that has just come to a close. He did not yet provide any information on the exact amount of the gain. In 2018, the main division of the VW group had earned 3.239 billion euros before special influences – such as legal costs for the diesel affair – in the current business year.

1000 Liters of apple juice for the “tafel” in kulmbach

1000 liters of apple juice for the 'tafel' in kulmbach

Bright red apples hang from the trees on tim pistor’s property. A picture straight out of paradise. The 32-year-old has already harvested some trees with the help of many volunteers, but many trees are still overcrowded. Especially the later varieties let pistor stay on the tree as long as possible. Because that’s where they’re most likely to stay fresh and crisp.

"I’m experiencing a real apple glut this year. The drought couldn’t change that. Apparently my floor fits", says tim pistor and sighs a bit theatrically. While others complain that this year’s harvest was anything but abundant, pistor doesn’t know where to put all the apples anymore. He himself cannot possibly consume it. "I like to eat apples. But I don’t really drink fresh apple juice myself. It is simply too much what has grown this year."

Make the world a little better

Without further ado, pistor has joined the "transition kulmbacher land" movement CONNECTED. This is a movement that wants to make the world a little bit better. "Our motto is: now. Simply. Make", tim pistor explains the group’s goals. Together with friends like tim reich and kathrin hain, with neighbors, with family members and with members of the V 3 party, pistor harvested the trees. "It was not difficult to find harvesters. In total 15 people helped."

Klopp annoyed: scolding for hummels critics

Klopp annoyed: scolding for hummels critics

Jurgen klopp complains about overly critical treatment of borussia dortmund players and also wants national coach joachim low to clear up the most recent accusations against mats hummels.

"I don’t think jogi low has a problem with borussia dortmund. But it’s also a fact: if mistakes get names, then it’s not unlikely that it’s a borussia dortmund player," klopp told tv station sky before the BVB game against hamburger SV (6:2).

In the ZDF interview after the game, a visibly annoyed klopp then followed up, saying that hummel’s performance, like that of other dortmund players, had not been properly assessed by the media. "I wanted to discuss about the right thing and not open topics – not: ‘klopp says that about low’. That’s nonsense. I’d like to talk about soccer," klopp said in the "ZDF-sportstudio". "You are not out of responsibility," dortmund coach told critics.

Giving up is not an option for fdpler hans muller

Giving up is not an option for fdpler hans muller

He laughs silently to himself, nods knowingly and searches for the right wording. And then hans muller utters the word, the name that no FDP member can handle at the moment: rosler. The federal party chairman and economics minister is a hotly contested figure in his party. Hans muller, the county chairman and county councilor, also has his problems with philipp rosler. He lacked the charisma, the effect of a hood.

After the last federal election, the finance minister had to be from the FDP, finds muller. The finances are the metier of the liberals. On the federal level, some things didn't go well in terms of personnel, says the wiesentheide lawyer. And the negative mood that has spread throughout the country is hard to get out again.

Muller is not sparing with self-criticism. His party stands for personal responsibility and the freedom of the burgher. No political level has ever succeeded in making this clear to the people of auben. Muller was once a CSU member. In 2006, he joined the liberals and was immediately elected district chairman, a fact that did not go unnoticed by the people of the district. That was already a topic people were talking about. Muller also drew some other christian socialists with him to the FDP. At that time, the liberals were doing well nationwide.

Us newspapers deplore chinese hacker attacks

Us newspapers deplore chinese hacker attacks

Hackers had penetrated the newspaper’s computer network and were able to take full control of some computers. According to its own report, the "wall street journal" has been the target of hackers from china for several years. The chinese hackers apparently wanted to monitor the newspaper’s coverage of china, the world-famous business daily wrote in its friday edition.

The newspaper that belongs to the news corp. Heard by rupert murdoch, sees in the attacks a widespread phenomenon. Other major media are also affected, such as the financial news specialists bloomberg and thomson reuters. The federal bureau of investigation has been investigating the matter for more than a year, it said, citing people familiar with the matter. The FBI is even considering classifying the case as a threat to national security.

The attacks could put whistleblowers in danger and make reporting much more difficult, the newspaper fears. The most recent attack took place in the middle of last year and was discovered by the FBI. One of the gateways for the hackers was the office of the newspaper in beijing, from which they had gained access to the entire network.

Bad kissingen demands funds for sewer work

Bad kissingen demands funds for sewer work

Mayor kay blankenburg (SPD) did not seem to feel quite at ease in his own skin: "i know it's a heibes eisen", he said at the beginning of a meeting in which he had to explain to a number of burghers why the city had to pay a total of 600 euros in arrears.000 euros for trench and sewer work from the years 1997 to 2009 from them wants to collect.

The precarious thing is that the city administration was originally of the opinion that no contributions would be levied for these measures. But because the municipal auditing association found in 2011 that the contributions were "without ifs and buts", the mayor was not entirely comfortable with the situation – the head of the town – the kissing authorities had to correct their view. At the same time the mayor promised: "nobody has to sell his house to pay the contributions."

Construction director hermann schober explained the technical side of the then canal and street tree inspections, which served primarily to protect the healing spring area and thus included the following streets: hemmerich,- kapellen-, von-der-tann-strabe, reithaus- and eisenstadter platz. Since the mabnahmen were closely related, only one engineering firm was commissioned, and it was not until 20. September 2009 the final bill. And whoever was the owner of the property at that time is also the one who is liable to pay the contribution. Naturally, this did not please those who considered properties or condominiums in the street areas to be "free of encumbrances had acquired.

The trubach gets a new bridge

The trubach gets a new bridge

For agricultural residents on the left of the river trubach, the construction of a new bridge between hagenbach and lutzelsdorf has become necessary. After the heavy rains of the past few days, the workers have finally been able to start building the bridge. The work should be completed by summer. The construction site is located in the immediate vicinity of the existing wooden walkway.

The bridge is being built under the direction of the office for rural development. According to the office, 116,000 euros have been earmarked for the bridge. For the access road will fall another 26 000 euros.
The new construction, which is being carried out in close coordination with the water management office, the nature conservation authority and the municipal administration, has meanwhile also attracted the attention of the local fishing club in hagenbach. Together, the temporarily altered course of the trubach could be prevented from causing gross damage to wildlife.

New home for the noble crayfish
The remaining brown trout and rainbow trout as well as some noble crayfish have been moved to their natural habitat.
"Amazing and at the same time a proof of the good water quality" according to the fishing association, the 200 or so muhlkoppen that were found in the 20-meter-long empty trubach section are also a new home for the noble crayfish.
There has been no rescue for the larvae of caddisflies, creek fleas and other micro-organisms.
In this context, the fishing association can only hope that the flora and fauna will recover quickly after the completion of the construction work.
