"With this package deal, we have largely achieved a breakthrough in the financing of our restructuring program," explained the chairman of the management board, kay hafner.

The core of the financing is a loan of over 40 million euros from a group of investors advised by the austrian private bank semper constantia. The capital is to be available immediately. "Although the volume of loans is somewhat lower than originally targeted. But the conditions (…) more favorable than what we had to pay to the international fund company," explained chief financial officer markus schurholz. Credit negotiations with the U.S. Fund anchorage had previously failed due to differing ideas about conditions.

In addition, a bank commitment of 20 million euros had extended an existing credit line of 40 million euros for three years. In addition, the trade credit insurers are prepared to make commitments. The company announced that a loan of 15 million euros was the last building block to be secured, and at the same time expressed optimism that this could be concluded in the short term.

“Loddar” relaxes in the beer garden

It should be asparagus, potatoes and a schnitzel. "And fraulein, could you bring extra sauce hollandaise?", lothar matthaus shouts after the waitress as he orders lunch in the beer garden of the red ox on herzogenaurach's market square, enjoying the wonderful weather in his old hometown with his girlfriend, lingerie model joanna tuczynska (27), and a few acquaintances.

"We live out of a suitcase, we are on the road all year round. And then I come here and I immediately remember so many things from the past", tells the former world footballer of the year in a good mood from the near box. And that's why he also wants to offer his fellow travelers a bit of sightseeing during their vacation home: the parental home, the school, perhaps the mobelhaus fischer, where matthaus completed his training as an interior decorator, are on the agenda. "Or the place where I kissed my first girlfriend", suggests the 51-year-old in english and winks at joanna.

A wacky duo has to go to jail

A wacky duo has to go to jail

"Like clockwork for years, the cooperation between a used car dealer (37) in the district of wurzburg and an employee (46) of the registration office in the district administration office ran smoothly. Yesterday, a rough criminal division of the regional court sentenced the two men, who lived in the same town, to four years in prison each.
With small amounts, five or ten euros for small cases, the clerk in the district administration office has been "classically fed" by the dealer with his own repair shop and washing trough, so the court. In the beginning, he only took applications to the office and brought the documents back in the evening, so that the motor vehicle technician could save himself the trip to the district office. Gradually, however, the expectations have risen, and so have the counter-performance.
Finally, the master mechanic determined what was entered in the vehicle documents. Used cars have been falsified by falsifying the initial registration and thus increased in price, inspection dates have been postponed and technical changes documented in the vehicle have not been made at all.
"Vehicles were registered which were not roadworthy in that condition", prosecutor dr. Reinhold emmert.
The man from the office was also rewarded by leaving vehicles free of charge, right up to the top to the 5 series BMW and convertible as well as free workshop service.
According to the court and the prosecutor, the used car dealer was undoubtedly the "driving force" in the whole affair had been. When he caught the employee, he did not let him go and when the man from the registration office actually wanted to get out, he preferred not to risk it for fear of dangerous people behind him. They were there no spab know, had been told to him. The prosecution assumes that there is at least one other "criminal level" above the used car dealer with a workshop and a car wash gives. On the sidelines of the trial, there was talk of circles with a migration background. The dealer did not want to give any information about this.
Although several hundred cases of false certification in office and incitement to it, fraud, bribery and corruptibility were accused, the court was able to stop taking evidence after barely three hours of trial. The used car dealer and the former employee of the registration office had "sung like canaries" and admitted everything.
The criminal palette of the used car dealer also included extensive insurance fraud: old damages were declared as new and worked on in the workshop at inflated prices or even only settled,. By participating in fictitious accidents outside the village, vehicle owners were able to "settle" outstanding repair bills. Or they could get credit for their involvement in planned pile-ups on used cars that were actually too expensive for them. Insurance companies are said to have been defrauded of over half a million euros in this way. There were provoked accidents, which one loved to take up even by the police.
The car mechanic came from home to the court hearing, the ex-employee from custody and there he was brought by police officers: because he lost not only his job but also his wife and children in the corruption case children, is the court with him in view of the gross "shambles" of increased risk of flight was assumed. The family has also left him because the house had to be sold and his debt is 70 000 euros.
Before his arrest, he had already undergone psychotherapeutic treatment for anxiety and depressive disorders. The two men, who had no previous convictions and did not exchange a word with each other during the trial, were told by the court that they could expect to be released on probation after serving half their sentences. At least, the recommendation will be written in the sentencing memorandum.
The four-year prison sentences became effective immediately, since the defendants, like the prosecutor, waived their right to appeal.
A salesman from the vehicle sector, more of a marginal figure in the dock, was the third man to "get away" with a nine-month custodial sentence for inciting false certification. He had heard about the fact that an employee in the district office meets customers under certain circumstances and had successfully tried this in a dozen cases.

The two boys and seven girls have made themselves comfortable on this sunday morning in the parish hall in lahm. Louis, benjamin, hanna, jana, leonie, marie, lisa, marina and christin sit in a circle on soft cushions on the floor. In front of them they have placed their harvest baskets.

Second vortanzer wanted

second vortanzer wanted

"My name is mia and my hobbies are gymnastics and dancing." The limber mia thein from seblach has the ideal prerequisites for a dance mariechen. For five years now, the now twelve-year-old has been attracting everyone’s attention with her appearances for the seblach carnival association. Laura muller also likes dance and music. The five-year-old from seblach could one day become mia’s successor.

No, the altere is not thinking about quitting. But jens-peter scholz, president of the carnival association, wanted to play it safe and slowly build up a potential successor. That’s why the carnival club invited girls to a kind of casting at the seblach school via the city of seblach’s official and information bulletin. "We are also looking for a little dance girl", confirmed scholz at the beginning of the taster session.

Rough selection did not offer itself to the responsible persons of the carnival association seblach. As the only interested person appeared laura. And she was very impressed by three trainers and the president of the club. Somewhat shy, the little girl hid her face and, once spoken to, did not want to answer at all. Also to the surprise of her mother christine muller. "At home she sings and dances a lot", the seblach woman reports. Especially when you hear the music from the animated film "the ice queen – completely unfrightened" there was no stopping for the girl.

New pop/rock/classical world

New pop/rock/classical world

In the beginning there was the idea: a joint concert with the two bands "schweinsohr selection" and "revolver and the bamberg symphony orchestra. This was thought of by uwe gaasch, who played in both bands. Contacts were quickly made, and heinrich ellner (former program director at radio bamberg) enthusiastically agreed to be the organizer. That was in the year 1999. They met, worked out the details and looked for a suitable landing.

As chance would have it: pastor hans lyer was also in the group and simply asked the then vicar general alois albrecht: "how was it with the cathedral square??" Albrecht agreed, and the way was clear. There were still a few problems with the locksmith and lake administration, but then everything was in the bag – the first pop event ever on the venerable cathedral square in bamberg was feasible. A novelty for the world heritage.

Bells of the cathedral included

After the "go from the official side it went to the preparation. For the moderation of the evening wolfgang buck agreed to do it. As opening act, everyone agreed, the bard uwe beuer was chosen. He comes from north rhine-westphalia and had so far thrilled countless passers-by with his ballads in the passageway of the bamberger town hall. Just as grandiose and sovereign was his appearance on the cathedral square.

No open space facilities in the main valley

The expansion of renewable energies in germany has accelerated sharply. Last year, almost half of electricity came from renewables – mainly wind and photovoltaic plants – or was generated by hydropower or biomass. The market town of zapfendorf has now drawn up criteria for how much flat land should be set aside for new photovoltaic installations on open land. Decisions were also made on the allocation of municipal land to developers.

Currently, there is a large open-space photovoltaic plant in the market town of zapfendorf, located in the district of reuthlos. More are quite conceivable, which is why the committee had set itself the goal of working out guidelines. "In the interest of climate protection, the market zapfendorf is not opposed to further construction of renewable energy plants. Further solar plants on free surfaces could also make a contribution to this", it was reported in the press on 11 march. March now decided. It must be weighed "under which conditions this can be done contractually with landscape and other concerns".

In the six-page document "guidelines for open space photovoltaics in the market zapfendorf" especially the visibility and the landscape play a rough role. No plant should be visible from developed or buildable land – unless the owners do not object. A construction in the direction of the main valley is excluded.

Award-winning buildings can be marveled at

Award-winning buildings can be marveled at

The BDA award for franconia is presented every two years and this year was the seventh time it has been awarded. "It has become a permanent institution and an important benchmark for the evaluation of contemporary buildings" said the department director of the government of upper franconia, marion resch-heckel, at the vernissage on tuesday evening.

City faces up to responsibility
Mayor henry schramm (CSU) made it clear that it is also the task of a municipality as a developer "to build consciously and to comply with certain standards". A building must be functional, but it must also be architecturally special. Kulmbach is aware of this responsibility. During the renovation of the town hall, efforts were made to respect the historical building while at the same time designing the rooms so that people would enjoy working there. The former savings bank building, which had fallen into disrepair, had also been turned into a decorative piece in the old town. The building of the municipal utility in the blaich is in his opinion also very well done. Architecture must stimulate discussion, said the oberburg mayor.

Not only french gable roof
With state requirements and with marion resch-heckel as an advisor, the city has been able to get a number of projects off the ground. Schramm was pleased that some of the buildings will be presented as part of the exhibition. The buildings awarded by the BDA showed "how good french architecture can be and how many possibilities there are to create beautiful buildings". It doesn't always have to be the typical french gable roof.

And then there's the solo guard dance.

"I have training four times a week: twice in the group for a total of five hours and for my solo dance another four hours", she reports. And all that besides school, because daniela goes to the seventh grade of the gymnasium hochstadt.

Doesn't that turn into stress? Is there any "free time" left?? "Of course I have less time than others, but dancing is my free time, so to speak", daniela tells. Of course: you also have to be able to do without, because for example spontaneous outings with friends are often not possible.
