Old school holds new opportunities

Old school holds new opportunities

These were intense weeks, very intense. "We have done it, that is the most important thing", says BBZ school director georg gibler. 1500 moving boxes had to be packed and unpacked again. "There is a bit of melancholy in it", admits the principal. A little bit. "We are very much looking forward to the new school building", he says. With the final handover of the old BBZ to mayor michael kastl (CSU), the city of munnerstadt can now dispose of the huge complex, including its inventory. For the upcoming feasibility study, the head of the city wanted to set a direction. That’s why the city council of munich visited the site on saturday.

Together with the schoolchildren, the teachers packed the boxes in the week before the vacations. Although new tables, cabinets and chairs are available in the new BBZ, the teaching materials are needed. This includes pots, pans and crockery as well as musical instruments and even a grand piano. With six schools united in the BBZ, a lot of things are coming together. It was possible to combine what was useful with what was necessary. Because moving is on the curriculum at both the vocational school for nutrition and care and the school for special needs education. It is hard to get more practical than this. Everyone involved was happy that the district office sent karsten scheuring to munnerstadt for four weeks to coordinate the entire move. He will also be at their side for a few more days.

For the actual move a company was available, but the boxes had to be unpacked again during the vacations. That’s why teachers, administrators and janitors were concerned. No one was free during the vacations. They have worked really hard, confirms the deputy principal christian zintl. He was at the BBZ for seven years and has been a teacher for 21 years. Principal georg gibler has been with the school for 31 years. No wonder there is a bit of melancholy in the air. What they won’t miss: the fear in the morning that the heating has broken down again or that water has penetrated through leaking windows. "We now have a very modern building that is completely digitalized, says christian zintl. It is the most modern school in the county and beyond.

Humboldt, tettau and the porcelain

Humboldt, tettau and the porcelain

Not glass, but porcelain and the 250. Alexander humboldt’s birthday was the focus of attention in the festival hall on sunday evening. The naturalist and world burger left his mark on franconia and tettau and helped shape the history of porcelain. It was an entertaining event with good speeches, impressive pictures, lots of information and stylish china. And the impression has solidified that tettau, glass and porcelain go together.

District local historian gunter dippold gave a gripping lecture on alexander von humboldt. Helmut heinz and helmut seifferth staged an exhibition covering four centuries of porcelain and humboldt’s relationship to the porcelain industry. The rosler family from rosler ceramtec put in a great effort. Marietta and corinna rosler created more than just a "humboldt cup, but also exhibited porcelain treasures.

For him as a glassmaker, the compilation of the exhibition was connected with new experiences, helmut heinz summed up. "Porcelain is already and fascinates – whether as a figurine or tableware."

Out of the aquaria?

Out of the aquaria?

Simone bastian actually, it’s good news: the city was able to obtain money from a federal program for the partial renovation of the aquaria baths. But for harald beetz, this is also bad news: when the indoor pool is renovated, swimming will not be possible there for a long time. Harald beetz, responsible for swimming courses at the coburg swimming club, is worried about the children: "before corona, the clubs that offered swimming courses had three-digit numbers on the waiting lists after the first lockdown 1000. If the pool is closed for two years, it will be 3000."

This has exacerbated a problem that already exists from the point of view of the sports clubs: there are too few swimming pools for everyone who wants to or should swim. The coburg sports association, as the local umbrella organization for all sports clubs, has therefore suggested to the mayor of coburg and sports spokesman dominik sauerteig (SPD) that the aquaria should concentrate on the leisure and wellness sector, says michael schulz. For swimming courses and schools "what is socio-politically important", the chairman of the coburg sports association calls for a solution of his own.

The aquaria has an instructional pool and a sports pool available for use. Both use schools, VHS, and the coburg swimming clubs. The training pool alone is occupied for 24 hours and 45 minutes per week, harald beetz has calculated. The schools have a total time allotment of 12 hours. But for the swimming courses alone, there is a need for 34 hours, says beetz.

Mourning in bamberg: writer and tatort author peter braun dead

Mourning in bamberg: writer and Tatort author peter braun dead

The news that peter braun had died was passed on in shock in the cultural scene of the city of bamberg on sunday. At the time of going to press, there was no news about the immediate circumstances.

Braun, born in bamberg in 1960, had an unusual biography for a writer. After graduating from high school, he completed an apprenticeship as a car mechanic before studying dentistry. Since 1989 he has worked as a journalist for supraregional media, but also for the frankischer tag, for radio and television. He intensively dealt with E.T.A. Hoffmann, z. B. In "E.T.A. Hoffmann. Poets, artists, musicians in the renowned artemis& winkler verlag or in a skilful outline of hoffmann’s bamberger years.

How braun was able to write precisely and intelligibly without slipping into platitude. That came his literary history dedicated to young readers "von blechtrommeln und nestbeschmutzern" (of tin drums and nest polluters) as well as the volume "from good-for-nothing to steppenwolf. A somewhat different literary history.

Different location and new boiler

Different location and new boiler

Will the planned woodchip heating system for the scheblitz schools be one of the first building blocks for the future regional plants?? In the district and environment committee, the tendency toward such a solution became apparent in any case. "Integration into the regional works would be very good", said district construction manager gabriele pfeff-schmidt.

The biomass heating plant is to supply the school center with secondary school, middle school and giechburg school (forderschule) as well as the fire department building in bamberger strabe with warmth already in the coming winter. The county committee and the environment committee decided last december that the county would assume responsibility for the project. Pfeff-schmidt now informed the members of both committees about the latest status.

On the one hand, the location has changed. Instead of developing a new area ("sudwest II") through urban land use planning, the facility is now to be built on a parcel of land next to the middle school, which belongs to an already developed commercial area. On the one hand, this means that the construction of the planned access road is not immediately necessary, and on the other hand, it saves the construction of an approximately 40-meter-long gas pipeline. Gas is still needed, however, because a new gas boiler is to be built to cover the peak load, instead of integrating the ageing heating system of the secondary school into the plant, as was previously planned.

The week: oktoberfest with amanda lear

The week: oktoberfest with amanda lear

Something is going on. The first wave of autumn flu. Most of the time it happens exactly at the time of the fair – and it doesn’t seem to be a coincidence, as the example of a colleague shows. Which is why they joined the vintners of sommerach for the start of the world’s most beautiful after-beer-is-before-beer folk festival, to be up close and personal with the wies’n innkeepers as they moved in. Quickly we bought an eternal guad-schaugsd-aus-dirndl, which is top news, as the colleague originally comes from dortmund.

Everything was ready, everything was fancy – until the heavy rain came. The colleague turned into a watered poodle who caught a full-blown cold. With the bacilli in tow, the whole editorial team was sneezed all over a little later, which a colleague found so stunning that he in turn sank onto the hospital bed with a fever and a voice like amanda lear once had. Or, as the munchner would say: do legst di nieda!

While we were on the subject of watered poodles, this week we had to read a very unflattering story about a dog owner in kitzingen, germany. The man had not cleaned up the rough shank of his four-legged friend and was therefore approached by a young woman.

The water price in the mannsgereuther group remains stable for the time being

The last meeting of the water supply association of the mannsgereuth group focused on the enactment of a contribution and fee statute to the water supply statute of the association. In the former elementary school in schneckenlohe, there was enough space to keep a distance.

First chairman werner knoth explained that the valid statutes of 11. February 1991 had to be overhauled. For this purpose, the recalculation of the land and floor areas in mannsgereuth and beikheim was necessary. In addition, government councilor georg herold from the legal supervisory authority, the district office of lichtenfels, had prepared a calculation, which he explained in detail.

Although the further development of the red hill building area in beikheim is pending and will cause costs, the water price could be kept at 2.10 euros for the time being. The basic fee for the water payers is 36,00 euro, for the larger payers 72,00 or. 144.00 euro. The production fee was set at 0.44 euros per m² for the land and 4.03 euros for the floor area. The statutes were unanimously adopted. It will be published in the official gazette of the district of lichtenfels, in the municipal bulletins and in the notice boxes in mannsgereuth and beikheim.

The daycare center is happy about two employee anniversaries

A whole house full of lively children – that’s what kindergarten teacher christine winkler and nursery nurse cornelia pausch enjoy every day anew, even after more than 30 and 45 years, respectively. For such a long time, the two have enjoyed their profession, which is exciting for them every day anew.

On the occasion of this special, anything but everyday anniversary, the team as well as the boys and girls of the protestant daycare center "unterm regenbogen" prepared for them a small celebration.

The two came to their profession rather by chance. "I actually wanted to become a nurse and had to bridge a year for it", remembers christine winkler. She used the year for a pre-study internship at the "kronacher lebenshilfe", where she worked with preschool children with behavioral problems or disabilities.

Model school oberhaid – among bavaria’s first

model school oberhaid - among bavaria's first

Robert martin is enthusiastic. Things are moving forward. And – oberhaid has almost become a kind of model school: a model municipality as far as the energy sector is concerned. Martin is not an oberhaider. He comes from gundelsheim. He has discreetly inserted himself between the obrhaider. After all, he wants to savor this small stage victory a bit and at the same time motivate them for further efforts. Martin is the district's climate protection officer. With body and soul – and therefore also in oberhaid. At the kick-off on tuesday evening for the creation of an energy concept for the community.

Oberhaid is, as I said, the first in the county and among the first of the bavarian 100 whose energy concept receives a 75-percent requirement. The countdown starts on tuesday evening. The energy concept for the community of oberhaid is to be ready in a year's time. Time is of the essence – the steering group that is to advance the project will meet for the first time today, thursday. The goal: on the one hand, to save energy, and on the other hand, to generate as much as possible locally, to keep economic cycles in the region. Martin knows the key words that will point the way to energy self-sufficiency this evening.

The energy concept is just under 25.000 euros and 75 percent of the costs are covered by the office for regional development (ale). The commitment for this transmitted on behalf of the aledessen energy coordinator andreas eichhorn. The other details were explained by dominik bohlein, authorized signatory of the bamberger company "energievision franken", oberhaid's partners in the next twelve months.
