Fair trade: ebern does the same as eltmann

Fair trade: ebern does the same as eltmann

Imitating something is generally considered to be perverse, unoriginal and uninspired. But by no means: exactly this idea of "imitating" ebern’s mayor, jurgen hennemann (SPD), took up the cause on tuesday evening in the frauengrundhalle at the former federal military base and wished that as many municipalities as possible in the habberge district and the region would do the same. Because ebern wants "fairtrade-becoming a city and thus setting an example in terms of "fair trade and "living sustainably.

Another sign, because: the baunach alliance with its eleven members from three counties (including six habberge municipalities) already has a pioneer in its own ranks. The town of baunach in the district of bamberg already holds the title of "fairtrade town," and "if ebern follows suit, we might get the other communities to do the same, so that we might become the first fairtrade alliance," he says, said hennemann at the launch event.

But first things first. There is not yet a single official fair trade town in the habberge district, and like "one world regional promoter shiloe mokay-rinke from the "one world network of bavaria" association on tuesday evening, the district of habberge declared that it is the only one in the government district that does not yet have a fair trade municipality in its ranks. But she did not mean it in a reproachful way, because she also said that many of the local communities and cities already fulfilled most of the criteria to be awarded the title. More on these criteria later.

Burger is concerned about the shortage of doctors

Burger is concerned about the shortage of doctors

The head of the village again sought talks with the two doctors who are planning to relocate their practice to bad bocklet. "This decision is probably final", says bug today. Since there will only be two practices left in the market town, whose operators "have already reached retirement age", he explains, a successor must be found. "We went to the medical association and got advice", he explains.

There one had informed first of all about the fact that it is difficult to find at all family doctors, all the more so for the rural area. The reasons are the high bureaucratic costs associated with this profession and the burden of on-call duties. In addition, a large proportion of the doctors are now female. According to bugs, however, several women plan to work part-time and therefore do not want to take over a complete practice. Nevertheless, one will actively look for doctors in the market burkardroth "among other things with advertisements", the mayor added.

While the local discussions had only taken place in wollbach and zahlbach, there were mayor’s meetings in all twelve villages of the market. "The run may not be as rough as it was at the beginning", says bug "but everywhere there was a need for discussion." Between two and six people had sought the individual interview each time.

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.
