In passau, the drinking water supply is cut off

In passau, the drinking water supply is cut off

The three-river city of passau is hit by the worst floods since 1501. Because of the immense water masses a contamination of the drinking water wells threatens, the municipal utilities passau had to stop the drinking water supply, as the crisis staff on monday announced. German chancellor angela merkel (CDU) plans to visit passau this tuesday together with minister president horst seehofer (CSU) to get a picture of the dramatic situation. She promised help to the victims of the floods in germany: "the federal government will also see what we can do to help, as will the states", she said in berlin on monday.

The bavarian state government wants to alleviate the consequences of the flood disaster in passau and southeast bavaria with an aid program of 150 million euros. This was decided by the crisis committee in munich. According to the bavarian chamber of insurance, the extent of the damage cannot yet be quantified.
Thousands of emergency workers continued to fight the floods on monday. According to interior minister joachim herrmann (CSU), they were supported by 650 soldiers from the german armed forces, with a further 350 soldiers to follow.

Due to the easing of the precipitation, there were signs of an initial easing of the situation in some places – but in passau in particular, the situation continued to deteriorate. On monday afternoon, the level of the danube rose to 12.50 meters, surpassing the century flood of 1954 with 12.20 meters. Only in 1501 had the water level been higher, at around 13.20 meters. A normal level for this time of year would now be up to 4.50 meters, said a spokesman for the crisis team in passau.

For hobbits and velvet paws

And very imaginative, when it comes to increasing their wealth through concrete gold or the development of their plassenburg.

Apparently, the region is also inventive when it comes to self-reliance, as was clear from a careful reading of one or two of the local council reports in last week’s bayerische rundschau newspaper.

For example, a recreational facility with hobbithausers is planned in fohlenhof near neudrossenfeld. Wow! I spontaneously asked myself if I, with my 1.63 meters, was too coarse to be a tenant. Or my fube with a petite 37 about too small?

Interview with the dismissed head of ig metall in bamberg: 'it was not an organized putsch'

A dispute in the IG metall bamberg has cost the first authorized representative matthias gebhardt his office. His surprising dismissal at the delegates’ meeting hit the long-serving front man of the most important union in bamberg completely unexpectedly and personally. In an interview, the 54-year-old deals with the scandal, assesses the situation of IG metall and gives an outlook on his personal future.

How deep is the shock after your deselection?? Matthias gebhardt: please understand that i was not yet in a position to comment on this in the first days due to the events. I am doing this now for the first and last time. My ouster, my fall as the first authorized representative of IG metall bamberg, caused stunnedness, incomprehension and head-shaking among my family, my friends and my bavarian colleagues. I myself am massively disappointed and humiliated by the greatest blow in my professional life.

The blow came unexpectedly. In retrospect, where do you see the reasons for the deselection?? Gebhardt: my opinion is that there was no organized dismantling or "coup" there was intrigue.

Everyone is happy about the help of the defense forces

Everyone is happy about the help of the defense forces

In the saint marien church, this day of remembrance was celebrated with an ocunemic service. Over 350 firefighters underlined the high value of this day. City pastor joachim lindner, himself a rough follower of the fire department, buried the fire departments and the representatives from politics, business and associations. He thanked the firefighters for their voluntary work, even at the risk of their lives, for the general public. This deserves thanks and recognition from the public.

In his sermon, the protestant pastor friedrich seegenschmidt recalled the american president john f. Kennedy, who once said: "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"."

With heart and soul
There was already a tendency at that time that has spread to us as well. People have tried to get everything out of society for themselves, without wanting to contribute anything themselves. "Everyone thinks only of himself and I think of myself. The results of this attitude are painfully noticeable in every town. There are fewer and fewer people who stand up for others", regretted pastor seegenschmiedt. Fire and rescue services are also finding it increasingly difficult to maintain their readiness for action. Everyone is happy when the fire department comes to the rescue, but who can come to the rescue when no one is willing to do so anymore?. The pastor therefore thanked the firefighters who always performed the firefighting service with heart and soul.

Beaver divides opinion in the district of bad kissingen

Beaver divides opinion in the district of bad kissingen

506 beavers were paid in lower franconia in 2017, 82 of them in the district of bad kissingen, as can be read in an inquiry by the grunen member of the state parliament kerstin celina to the bavarian state government. To find out how the protection of beavers is implemented here in the region, and how the protection measures are viewed by local farmers, the delegate, together with her newly elected colleague, farmer paul knoblach from the district of schweinfurt, visited the experts from the district office and the water management office in bad kissingen, as well as several farmers.

Roland lenhart, head of the lower nature conservation authority in the district of bad kissingen, informed those present, including hammelburg’s grunen town councillor elisabeth assmann, elfershausen’s grunen town councillor volker partsch, bad bockelt’s grunen town councillor antje kopp and petra winter, spokeswoman for the grunen district association of bad kissingen, about various successful projects, including the klaushof project and the grobwenkheim beaver lake: "at the wild park klaushof you can see and experience the world of the beaver. The beaver shapes the landscape and is a key species for making nature conservation visible on site", said lenhart.

Not everyone is equally happy about the reintroduction of the beaver in the region. Several farmers contacted celina after she asked the bavarian government to show them the concrete problems on the ground. Farmer paul knoblach felt that the discussions on site were objective and important to dispel potential misunderstandings. "The question is, can I still use my field in the future as I did in the past, is the beaver taking up more and more space and the farmers have less and less, will the burden remain one-sided on the farmers and how can we create a reasonable balance??", he summarized the topics.

Eintracht striker jovic: future still completely open

"I will think about it in the next few days and also discuss it with my advisor," said the serb in an interview with the "welt am sonntag" newspaper. At the same time, the courted attacker made it clear that he could well imagine a future with a major soccer club in another european league and that he wanted to take further steps in his career: "i’m looking forward to seeing my level compared to the best players in the world. One thing is clear: i want to be successful in my career."

Most recently, the pay-TV channel sky reported that jovic had already signed a five-year contract with the spanish top club real madrid and is to transfer in the summer for 60 million euros. The "bild", on the other hand, had reported that the transfer was not yet fixed because both clubs were still haggling about the transfer fee.

After his experiences in the bundesliga, jovic believes that "some other leagues in europe suit me better ? The way I play soccer". After playing in the europe league against FC chelsea or inter milan, he had the feeling "that i could feel even more comfortable in the premier league or serie A. The way the teams play there suits me better."

Construction area gets an armored wall

The agenda of the most recent meeting of the hebdorf municipal council included consideration of the comments received on the "hebdorf-sud" development plan. Lena beyrich from the planning office TB markert explained the comments received and the necessary changes as well as planning considerations.

The discussion focused on the northern access road to the area and the noise barrier. For stefan stiegler (SPD), the northern access road to the area is very important, as the left turn lane in the south alone is not sufficient. The majority of the committee was of the opinion that a direct connection should be created on the opposite street. The noise barrier is to be four meters high, and two parking spaces are to be created per plot.

Draft is laid out

The suggestions of the comments received are to be taken into account in the further planning or have been acknowledged. The revised draft of the development plan "hebdorf-sud" will again be put on public display for one month and the administration was instructed to continue the process.
