Silent place of worship

Silent place of worship

Many believers from mistendorf, zeegendorf, tiefenhochstadt, hochstall, kalberberg and other communities in the vicinity have marched every year on the feast of the birth of mary from the parish church in mistendorf to the chapel on the steinknock, singing and praying. Accompanied by the church flags, various holy figures, the church music and numerous club delegations, the blessed sacrament is carried in the monstrance by the priest to the lady chapel on the steinknock.

To the great joy of the faithful, archbishop ludwig schick took over this task in 2009. For more than 30 years even believers from hof came to the procession in mistendorf.

The sacramental procession takes place in commemoration of the consecration of the chapel on 8. September 1895. The steinknock and the procession are closely linked to the life and work of pastor otto wohlleber, the last pastor of mistendorf, who died in 2017.

Safety is the top priority on the summer toboggan run

Safety is the top priority on the summer toboggan run

A summer reporter goes tobogganing? But he is half a year too early, one could think. But do not worry, I have not made a mistake in the date. On the summer toboggan run in pottenstein, tobogganing is not limited to the cold season – on the contrary! Here highspeed-friends can print just in the summer on the tube.

Today I join them – and like the ride on the railroad, my day starts rapidly. The all-morning test ride is coming up. "We have to check that the rails are undamaged and that there are no aste lying on them", uwe heinlein, the railroad's operations manager, tells me. We are pulled up by a rope hoist. I let go of the brake, and off we go down into the valley.

Down through a steep curve to the left, then to the right again, feeling the wind on our faces. This is fun and work at the same time. It can go on like this. The next stop: the workshop of the summer toboggan run. Here uwe heinlein explains to me some basic facts about the track. "On the summer toboggan run, tobogganers have been able to choose between two different tracks since 2003. The yellow train rides like a roller coaster on rails. The red, on the other hand, in a channel similar to an ice rink."

Berger and froboess together again in front of the camera

Berger and froboess together again in front of the camera

With a new film project, ARD is bringing two old stars of german TV back together in front of the camera after a long time: senta berger (72) and cornelia froboess (69) have been filming together in munich since tuesday for a strip with the working title "freundinnen" (girlfriends), as the station has now announced. The last time the two of them were seen together in a film was allegedly more than 50 years ago. In 1961 they filmed together "young people need love" – back then almost as teenagers.

It had recently become somewhat quieter around cornelia froboess. Most recently she was in the film "ostwind" to see – here it is available on DVD

The new ARD film will reportedly revolve around the difficult relationship between the cool dentist almuth seegers – played by berger – and her warm-hearted cleaning lady rita, who represents froboess. The working title of the film at least suggests that, despite all the friction, there could be a happy ending in the end.

Beckenbauer critical after 2:0: “some things to improve”

Beckenbauer critical after 2:0: 'some things to improve'

"That was a pretty solid impression, but there is still some room for improvement," was the honorary president’s assessment of the german record champion’s decent but by no means exhilarating performance. "It was an interesting game, but not the most attractive or high-class one."Coach jupp heynckes, on the other hand, praised his professionals for a commanding performance: "my compliments to my squad. We are very satisfied."

Even if the two grand seigneurs were of two minds about the eighth victory of the sovereign leaders of the fubball bundesliga, this does not change the general dominance of the munich team. For the far-flung pursuers bayer leverkusen and borussia dortmund, it must be rather frightening that even a largely average performance was enough for the bavarians to win.

Vfb was evenly matched, at least in the first half, before cristian molinaro’s puzzling jink pass straight into mario mandzukic’s path "broke his neck," as coach bruno labbadia lamented. The bayern goalkeeper broke the deadlock with his twelfth goal of the season (50. Minute) the spell. Thomas muller scored his tenth goal of the season (72).) all clear.

Political ash wednesday: free voters ready for change in the district

political ash wednesday: free voters ready for change in the district

Traditionally, the free voters in the district had invited to the political ash wednesday in hemhofen. Political events in the town hall and district administration were commented on over herring and potatoes. District chairwoman irene hausler and district council candidate regina enz made it clear that the political force of the middle was prepared to take on more responsibility – and to unseat the incumbent district councilor.

"As district chairwoman, i don’t really talk about politics in berlin or munich," says enz, says irene hausler. But this time is different. "Because we at the municipal level always have to pay for what is decided up there." Hausler cites the introduction of mandatory vouchers as a current example: "politics is destroying small and medium-sized businesses with more and more bureaucracy. This makes our region poorer", emphasizes the district chairwoman. "That’s why I only laugh when the representative for debureaucratization wants to be celebrated for the abolition of three ordinances. Because at the same time, the 100 have created new regulations", hausler criticizes. At the district office, this means that building permits now take more than half a year to process. Hausler: "soder says if an application takes longer than three months, it should automatically be considered approved. He should rather ask in his offices what the reality looks like."

Transparency is trumps

Stefan machtel is also happy to take up the ball. The chairman of the local association of free voters calls for more transparency in politics. "Of course you also have to say negative things to the burger", stresses machtel. "But it is important to take people along and explain what the situation is and what alternatives there are." But this rarely happens in everyday life, probably because the functionaries of the established parties have too little power of persuasion.
