The freu(n)de with the ball

the freu(n)de with the ball

27 children snake through the hall of the TV marktsteft, bounce the handball, with the corresponding background noise. They obviously enjoy the wednesday training with the male e-youth of HG marktsteft/rodelsee. He didn’t have to make friends first, here he had some right away, is how ten-year-old benedikt sums up his motivation and that of his friends.
They are all enthusiastic about handball and are already playing well in the D-jugend-bezirksoberliga in the later age group. With bernhard etzelmuller, horst matern, christian robmark, gerhard deppisch and lars gruner, a five-headed team, mixed from marktsteftern and rodelseern, looks after the kids – who also come from these towns. There are also people from marktbreiter and uffenheimer. Dusan suchy, coach of the rodelsee bavarian league team, takes care of the advanced e- youngsters: "nothing gets him out of his stride and he teaches them the craft of handball piece by piece", says bernhard etzelmuller, the coordinator.

Giving a lot back to the children

the 49-year-old has been playing handball for 40 years, and his motivation is to pass on to the children what he himself learned in training. He can only explain why there are so many kids in the hall: "I’m just lucky, I can’t help it that there are so many from rodelsee, marktsteft and the surrounding area." The children, however, find a different explanation. The word friends comes up again and again. For lukas (9), it’s as clear as day because he has so many friends here. Christoph (9) came to handball through his sister and found good friends here who are also at the handball training.

Durre and heat: goring-eckardt demands action plan from the federal government

Durre and heat: goring-eckardt demands action plan from the federal government

At next tuesday’s meeting of the federal and state governments on the durre damage, the government must present an action plan, she told the deutsche presse-agentur. The agreement must stipulate that germany will phase out factory farming in the next 20 years, that soil in agricultural regions must be better protected and that the federal government must invest more money in research into robust plants.

"The more radical the crisis becomes, the more radical the answers must be," said goring-eckardt. "Who still ignores the climate crisis in view of the europe-wide heat wave, acts at least negligently."Industrial agriculture is partly responsible for the climate crisis and its global consequences, such as droughts, storms and floods. "It is scandalous that the minister of agriculture and the farmers’ association still believe that agriculture in germany should be exempt from a progressive climate policy," criticized the parliamentary group leader.

Forest fires lead to a vicious circle, because less forest exacerbates the climate crisis, which in turn increases the risk of forest fires. "This vicious circle must be broken," demanded goring-eckardt. For this, there is an acute need for effective forest fire prevention with sufficient specialists, well-equipped task forces and more natural forests, since pure coniferous forests are at high risk of fire.
