May: suspects in skripal case are probably russian agents

Two russian agents allegedly perpetrated the poison attack on former russian spy sergei skripal. British prime minister theresa may announced that.

Earlier, police and prosecutors had released mugshots and names of two russian suspects. Alexander petrov and ruslan boschirov now wanted on international arrest warrant. However, the british police assume that these are not the real names of the two men.

According to may, they are members of the russian military intelligence service GRU, for which skripal was also once active. She again blamed the kremlin for the attack. "This was not an unauthorized operation. It was almost certainly sanctioned outside the GRU by higher ups in the russian state," the head of government told parliament in london. Moscow accuses them of "obfuscation and lying.

Drinking water is running out in steinfeld

Drinking water is running out in steinfeld

Actually, the households in the stadelhofen district of steinfeld have no reason to be dissatisfied with their water supply. "The quality is very good, we have never had any problems so far", emphasizes mayor ludwig gohl. Since its own deep well was drilled in the 1960s, it has been supplying people with the best drinking water. Previously, there were domestic wells and, of course, the wiesent spring. But now the local network is becoming weaker and weaker – pipe bursts are repeatedly causing the precious water to become scarce.
Water keeper martin barth therefore checks the high reservoir of the plant every day. He can tell from the glass blocks that have been grouted into the building what the supply situation is like. "When brewing takes place, consumption is much higher and the water level is much lower. If there is no brewing and the level drops, it is an alarm signal", says the experienced expert. Because then the probability is high that a leak has occurred somewhere in the local network. And then the water becomes scarce.

Payer changed

Mayor gohl gives some figures. "Per year the water supply steinfeld demands about 28 000 cubic meters of water, about 85 per day. The average consumption is 25 000, which is a good 80 cubic meters per day". This shows that when pipes burst, drinking water can quickly become scarce, because five to ten cubic meters can run out quickly. In order to get correct figures, the payers have already been changed in the past years. "They can also be a problem. Elsewhere, therefore, one has even sold more water than according to the payers of the O have been drawn". There the payer was replaced "now it fits", says gohl. But back to steinfeld. Twice this year we had to cope with pipe bursts, both on house lines. Once in spring, then again six weeks ago. Both times it took a few days to locate the leaks, the water flowed out and was no longer sufficient. In both cases, water had to be supplied by tankers of a private company from the local network of the long-distance water supply (O) located downstream. "The first time it was about 60 cubic meters, the second time about 75", says martin barth. This was enough to get by until the breaks were located and repaired. In one case, an iron pile hit the line during construction work, in the other case the cause is unknown. But of course, such rescue operations should not be permanent. That is why the municipality of stadelhofen is thinking about ways to remedy the situation. "We quickly notice breaks in the main line, but it's difficult to locate house lines, according to the head of the community. At the moment, the water from the deep well is first pumped into the local network, and the overflow flows into the elevated tank. This sequence could be reversed. However, some fear that the water pressure in steinfeld will then drop. However, the current eight to ten bar is not considered too high, nor is it the cause of the pipe bursts.

The whole village is renewed

The eggolsheim market will spend a good five million euros on village renewal in drugendorf. Kathrin niblein from the planning office barth and niblein presented the ideas and the status of the concept to both the community council and the drugendorfer residents in a castle meeting.

Before the sewer and water pipes in the main street can be replaced this year, a lot of preliminary work has to be done. In particular, through exchanges and contracts, the legal confusion of accesses from the rear land has been solved. This affected 40 to 50 properties. Care was also taken to ensure that all access roads are wide enough for agricultural vehicles.

A costly and time-consuming project is the restoration of the creek. The creek runs largely underground in the town center. This will also remain so because of the narrowness of the thoroughfare. The creek will be piped together with the fully defective sewer. But since this is a repair that is not eligible for funding, the municipality will have to pay around one million euros for it. Only about half of this will fall within the scope of the project, when the creek and surface water drainage from the main road are combined.

Paul daum of the medieval friends "burg augenglas seized the opportunity on saturday afternoon: while his club colleagues erected the stand, he built a snowman. A very special one – with a viking helmet on his head. On saturday something like this was still to be done. Yesterday the kulmbacher had bad cards: rainy dew weather loved the weibe pracht melt away.

The dingy weather ensured that, compared to previous years, there was no big rush of visitors at the blue christmas market. For many visitors, the umbrella was an indispensable companion on their stroll through the town, which had a christmas flair.

The organizers had prepared for the announced thawing weather. Already on thursday and friday, museum director bernhard sauermann from the bavarian brewery and bakery museum, event manager uli wagner and other helpers cleared snow diligently. "We didn't want people walking around in the mud", says sigrid daum, managing director of the museum. In addition, some of the 40 or so stands had been moved to the forecourt of the museum because it was easier to clear the snow from there.

The market town council now unanimously decided to convert the general residential area into a commercial area to enable the car dealership owner to expand his car dealership.
